I ask you now, help
Lend me an ear, hold my hand
I've been wrong, I know. No need to point out, this choice I made
A missed chance, broken oppurtunity
All this time, you were pretending
So fuck what you said, ignore the tears I shed
Leave my life and forsake my name
I'll be here, in the rain

You dont have to yell
Blue ruffles trimmed in pink lace and eyes like dark chocolate chips
Doll houses for make-believe and books of Once upon a times
I can hear you
Rainbow colored crayons and silly giggled rhymes
Smothered in sweet kisses and tight loving hugs
Your hurting me
Soft whimpering cries when teased with harmless little bugs
But for this child, those are just wastebasket dreams
All just a fairytale for her it seems
Knotted dark locks and lips cracked and dry
A tattered Mickey Mouse shirt and eyes that always cry
Thread worn bear clenched beneath a small arm
No! please not in there
Rip paged books hidden from further harm
Covered in bruises of black and blue
Let me out!
Ignored screams and hiccupping cries are nothing new
A thread worn bear clenched with cold little arms behind a locked door
I'll Let Go...I wish you'd see me here, dying, frustrated and hurtI'll Let Go...9 years ago in Limerick More Like This
Just because you exchanged me for that flirt.
It's so selfish of you to kiss me goodbye
When I thought that time, you'd be mine.
You're so insensitive! Not seeing the pain I'm feeling
You're blind! Can't you see what's happening?
I love you, and it's hurting me inside
Because I know when you left, my dreams died.
When you're together, i just turn away not to see,
The happiness I wished was given to me.
Then I ask myself again,
Why did you go and leave my heart broken?
I don't know if it's still right to love you,
But until I die, my heart will coninue...
I know it would be nonsense for me to do so,
But, without your love i would be alone and in sorrow.
I'm not asking you to come back to me,
Because i just want you to be happy,
Yet, if you're not happy with me,
There's no use in fighting for what this love could be.

That place you hate.
The place you never want to leave.
I could stay in bed all day.
Where I'd be safe
Hidden from world
I don't want to see.
A world of doubt and uncertainty
A world rife with hypocracy and judgement
And those hands.
Pulling you down
That's where I belong.
Note:I don't like the second paragraph, and I don't know how to fix it...any suggestions or should I just take it out all together?
To Love a PoetI loved her with words.To Love a Poet10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was oft, and in many ways
That I loved her
Yet she sought me as a sailor does stars
And just as often;
Her room, dark, tempted by
A sliver of moonlight
Is misty by her sighs.
Does she not recognize
The deliberate action of my words?
O, the heavens would have me harshly judged
For the Sundays spent searching
For the hundredth, milestone letter.
That I am a poet, she must loathe
Though I am thankful that her
Loathing loves me still.
I cannot deny
That I am a poet,
And I love her with words.
It was oft, and in many ways
That I lost sleep, writing under a shade of cloud,
Wandered the streets for inspiration,
A glimpse of poetry,
That I loved her.
Friends Don't LeaveWhen friends leave usFriends Don't Leave9 years ago in Open More Like This
to find new life,
they haven't gone too far, it seems.
'cause when you go to sleep at night,
they visit you inside your dreams.
While lost in deepest thought they give,
a glance at dusty memories found,
a confidante, who you can tell,
those secrets, keeping safe and sound.
They let you know they never left,
but, like your thoughts, have gone adrift.
To tell you they will keep in touch,
though body's life passed over rift.
They'll let you feel friend is around,
when you are in such dark despair.
Perhaps it's just to guide us, and,
to show us they still really care.
They bring a hope of life past life.
on earth, our worried minds contrive,
that though not in their bodies,
in their spirit, they are quite alive.
I figure when we think of those,
who've made the trip to starry sky,
they're twinkling down the message,
that we never really leave to die.
We'll join them in the great beyond,
as close to you as stars you see.
And when I meet my maker,
I'll be hoping you'll j
Heart of StoneIt's so quiet around me,Heart of Stone9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
no voices at all,
just hum from computer,
dogs sleep down the hall.
Alone with my thoughts,
in my room with my box,
silence is broken,
by tick of the clock.
No one ever wants me,
loves me, holds me tight,
or says with a whisper,
things will be alright?
Will I always be,
not a one's best for fun?
Blank staring at box,
of the loneliest one?
Alone in my room,
closed away from them all,
never saying a word,
to the kid down the hall.
So alone in his room,
always reeking of gloom,
not a one wants to call?
I've gotten so scared,
to go out to the hurt,
see all happy faces,
while mine is plain dirt.
The phone always silent,
friends closed in a box.
Keep trying that key,
that never unlocks.
I'm fading away,
not a thing, only words,
on a little white screen,
turning into machine,
no emotions at all,
even at memories,
that hang on the wall.
Silent blank staring,
except for the clock,
my heart slowly turning,
to petrified rock.
I sit and I write,

The bruises, they fade,
But the pain is the same.
Why do you do this Mommy?
Why do you keep me so afraid?
This is my life, living in
A war i call home.
It's all getting far to much,
And i feel so alone.
Mommy, what do you see,
When you look at my face?
You tell me your doing this,
To put me in my place.
Please, please stop Mommy,
I can't take it anymore!
Once again, i see some stars,
As i fall to the floor.
One of these days, Mommy,
You will got to far.
The everyone will see,
Just how cruel, you truly are!
But your still my Mommy,
And i love you with all my heart.
I hope some day, you'll love me back,
Instead of tearing me apart.

The Ocean's Black Heart
Not long ago, I thought it would never end. Every inch of Her engrained itself in my memory to keep as perfect as it had always been. Not long ago...
It ended. And I was left with my memories and my dreams... and a ring. A ring I'd given Her for saying "Yes" to the question that terrified me to ask. For saying yes to spending the rest of our lives together... before She decided to leave.
The ring itself was a simple thing, and not expensive as both She and I had been broke.... and honestly, She would not have been able to wear it because of her parents. So instead I had hunted and found a very cheap, but adequately wonderful ring. A sterling silver band with small stones in it that caught the light and reflected it, centered around a small black heart that protruded from the surface. It was beautiful, it was elegant, and it suited Her tastes and self perfectly.
Angel's FallEternal light's been broken,Angel's Fall9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
World dark in a haze,
Mercury's in retrograde,
releasing waves of craze.
For every evil piece of work,
the balance isn't there?
Love for fellow humans,
met with apathetic stare.
It seems to not get better.
The earth is turning worse.
Greed inside the bleeding heart,
forms rules made just with purse.
I search to find a tiny ray,
keep hope's last breath alive,
I lonely reach for someone's hand,
whose grasp will break this nightmare's dive.
And as I streak to hit the ground,
an angel does appear.
She turns on love light brightening path,
and scares away the darkest fear.
The poison deep inside of me,
has antidote to heal,
with balance fighting back,
and yet, completely I don't feel,
a comfort of her touch,
I'm leaning on a crutch.
with foundation only air,
held up by words inside a box,
so she's not really there.
Perhaps the glow will come in time.
All I do is sit and wait,
and look to distant future rhyme,
with hope that it won't come too late.

I feel so Blue
Blue as Cinderella's ball gown

Blue as facebook's theme colour

Blue as a smurf cartoon

Blue as an avatar dressed in a rag
Blue as the town that drowned in a flood
Blue as the sleepy twitter whale
Blue as the villain in 'Big Fat Liar'
Blue as the scrubs that doctors wear
Blue as the hottest flame of fire
I feel so Blue
What should I do?
I think I'll mix a little red
So I can feel purple instead!
Blood SongYour heart is taking its partBlood Song9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In a love scene where someone dies
No one cries
on the outside
Instead build a wall
A brace for which to fall
I worry so much for something
Something I cannot feel today
For I am merely
Steel and rust
In a gilded case
No, I cannot taste…
I know the future
This thread has twisted for too long
And your head has waded through a song
Filled with tasteless dreams of burns
You won't get over this quickly
Something slightly terrible
Is melting into your head
He held you
Your head hurts so much
And you still like his touch
He's not showing any signs now
Of letting you still breathe as one
You just ripped
Off an arm
And a leg, but still include him
Everything you say hurts them
It's not his fault; it's not his fault
A scratched, silk record moves
In a space
Devoid of everything but concern
And now, today, what have you learned?
He's been nice to you, and given love
And love is just what you wish
A bubble in your blood that spin

Thunder rolls in
this Heart of mine
I seek for one
To respond in kind.
My Heart is red
A Rose in bloom
It's far too strong
For this tiny tomb.
My Heart, this Rose
Is not without thorns
They guard and protect
So my heart can mourn
The losses great
The visions clear
The love of all
That I hold dear.
This Rose of mine
Needs constant care
Come water the soul
If you so dare.
It will rise with
Warm loving light
And sleep again
With the cool of night.
Any vines that stray
They must be pruned
And clear the weeds
They mean my doom.
Let no ill or
Evil take root
Let them disolve
Like ash and soot.
My Rose, this heart
In fields of green,
May it be a garden
That few have seen.
Now dig my ambitions
Deep into the earth
Grow seeds of dreams
And prove my worth.
Whether then planted
On mountain or gulch
I will grow strong
Or else I'm mulch.
Through sun, and rain
Every day can be
A brand-new bud.
As it grows and
I hope it sees all
in this magical world.

Reasons for GaaNaru
The first thing I would like to point out is that this is in no way a fan fiction, although it is placed in that category. This is a list of reasons that I have found in the Naruto manga/anamie that I believe Sabaku no Gaara and Uzumaki Naruto make a great couple. I will not argue over proof that either is gay or which one is seme and which is uke. Those are almost impossible to tell under normal circumstances unless you have either been told by or "accidentally" walked in on the couple in question, these types of things are NOT normally obvious in real life, so why should they be in stories? So if you're going to say things like "THEY AREN'T GAY D8!!!111!!0NE" Leave. Just leave.
The first reason is that they are extremely similar, but different enough to keep their relationship interesting. The most obvious link is that they are both Jinchuuriki. Having similar childhood gives them a solid base for their relationship. Of course, that's not the only commo

DETERMINING SEXUAL IDENTITY
For many people, there is no question at all about what their Sexual Orientation and Identity are, starting at a very young age. But for many others, it can be very confusing and traumatic. ALL of us are a blend of Straight and Gay. People who are almost completely Straight or Gay usually know how they are different from very young ages. Everyone else will have some someone degree of Confusion and Questioning. Many young people have a small amount of latent homosexuality, enough to confuse them, but not enough to be a Bisexual. Others can be confused by having a friend they love dearly. Some young people are late bloomers, becoming sexually aware later than most others. For others, there is also confusion about Gender. For others, they may not have sexual feelings at all.
Some people may not become aware of their homosexual nature, or may not recognize, realize, or acknowledge their homo
