That Single DaySitting, drinking my pain awayThat Single Day7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The Night slowly fades to day
Life is at the bottom of the well
Living in a personal permanent hell
Cares are all but dead and gone
Dying with the sun at dawn
Damn my love I had for you
Look what it's driven me to
I used to think of your smile,
Now my soul is soured with denial
What am I gonna do without you
Why do you do what you do
You broke my heart in a single day,
The day before you took my breath away
Love works in many mysterious ways
If I had only known it before today

When I see you, you take my breath away
I lay here now thinking of you,
Wondering if you're thinking of me too
Please heal my heartsick hungry soul
Lovestruck Thunder has taken it's toll
Coming down to bare on my mind
All I need is that single sign
I don't know how it started,
Your beauty on my heart imparted
Let me have my chance to shine
Then after that I know you'll be mine
The Day You Said YesAll alone I stare up at the ceilingThe Day You Said Yes7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trying to find a way to challenge this feeling
I knew it was true
and I knew I loved you
I could only cry
The day you would die
You aren't like the rest
Your better then the best
The days will grow longer
With you my heart will grow stronger
Every day and every night
I know, I knew, this felt right
You are mine, please say yes
I will be there for you in love and distress
I will always hold you dear
To my heart you will be near
My eyes, wet with a tear
Running down my cheek
You finally said yes
You'll be mine for all but the rest
Time has passed since then and there
The day you married me
That day that we missed
For now you are gone, It just can't be
You have passed life by
And with a final tear you did die
I said I would be brave
Till they laid me beside your grave
Death TrapAs Death gives me a vacant stareDeath Trap7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He breathes upon me, rancid air
How can I escape, do I dare
Death is all around me, everywhere
Running from a past and future secret
Keeping it silent is my sad regret
What can I do now but lay down and die
This is His justice, an eye for an eye
Creeping closer I meet the demon
Walking on a frozen fire tidal wave
My soul will be lost and never saved
Pray with me while I live my last day
You Are On My MindWhat am I to do now, I'm confused and lostYou Are On My Mind7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I would sacrifice all no matter the cost
Just for an answer of any kind from you
Silence hurts worse then broken bones do
Laying here thinking about what to say next
Not sure what to write, my mind perplexed
Passion burns through me like wildfire
You are my one and only worldly desire
Heart racing when you jump into my mind
My thoughts and feelings cannot be defined
Pounding Blood rushes through my skin
Claws of Love won't stop digging in
I Will TryI lay awake with you on my mindI Will Try7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In my vision your simply divine
I will wait forever for just a glance
Would you please like to dance?
I know I may not be a perfect man
I will try for you and do what I can
You claim my love with unbreakable bonds
My Heart skips like a rock on a pond
I will dream about you till I drift to sleep
Praying that you love me too, way down deep
You may not think I care for you inside,
You don't know my feelings for you I hide

Something was unreal. That was all I knew. Everything was colored too vibrantly while at the same time being extremely dull. I had never seen so much red and that was the part that scared me about the dream. Despite the fact that I knew exactly where I was, I knew that everything was wrong. The walls had never been a bright, bloody red before and neither had the carpet, nor the bed, nor the trees outside the window. It wasnt just that everything was red but everything seemed to be oozing the color. Bleeding it.
I reached across the gigantic bed that I had always thought was superfluous, my hands frantically grasping for the comfort from the stone body that I knew was lying next to me, was always next to me. He had to be there.
My hand bumped against his cold skin and I pulled myself over to him, mentally begging him to wrap my arms around him. I needed him more than anything, especially in that moment. But he was strangely rigid against me, almost as though he didn

High school. A jail-sentence that I was almost done with. I was ready to start jumping up and down as I walked into Forks High School that day, the last day of school before graduation to take the last high school test I would even need to take. Despite the fact that I was still exhausted from waking up at two in the morning from an awful nightmare and the fact that I had tossed and turned all night, I was quite elated and only half of it had to do with my perfect Edward walking beside me, his hand in mine.
People still stared at us as we walked by, scandalous looks on their faces like we had broken some sort of small-town, unwritten rule. Thou shalt not get married until after you graduate, unless you have knocked up your girlfriend. Youd think that after three months of us being married, people would stop looking at us like that but, alas, no. I was pretty sure that some people were still waiting for me to start showing even though I had made

I awoke to the sound of rain sputtering against my window. The sun was blocked by big, puffy, gray clouds. I sat up in my bed, and looked around the room. There was barely any sun, but there was just enough so I could see in my room.
Monster? I called.
He was nowhere in sight. I heard a thud downstairs, and rushed down to see if it was Monster. I ran into the kitchen to find my mother sitting at the table reading the newspaper, and my father behind a skillet. He was flipping pancakes.
Oh, good morning sweetie, My mother said when she realized I was in the room. Youre up early.
I glanced at the clock above the television. It read six thirty. Wow, I had never been up this early before. It was probably because of all the stupid rain. Or maybe it was this stupid town.
Yeah, I told her. I think this town is messing with my head.

"Edward, are you still moping about this?" I asked as I entered his room.
He didn't answer me, he didn't even look at me. All he did was sit lazily on his futon and stare at the floor.
"Edward, you're going to have to get over this sooner or later."
"Easy for you to say," he finally spoke.
I let out a sigh and said, "Edward, I don't even know if that vision was real. You know how screwed up they are."
"Yes, I know," he said.
"So are you going to get over this and go downstairs? You've been locked up here for 2 weeks."
"I guess...," he muttered.
"Good. Now me and Rosalie are going shopping. I'll be back later," I started.
When I reached his doorway, I stopped and looked back at him.
"And... here's a tip. Call her Bella," I smiled.
"Alice!" Edward yelled. I giggled.
By the time Rosalie and I returned, there was another family meeting being held.

A word about haiku - MS JamesA word about haiku - by Michael JamesA word about haiku - MS James8 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
I believe there are a few basic precepts about haiku that are largely overlooked, or just flat out just not taught in most basic literary (poetic) courses. Everyone seems to know that a haiku is supposed to be written in the structure of 5-7-5 syllables per line respectively, but there is much more going on than just a simple syllable constraint. I shall attempt to give a brief overview of the main points about haiku.
First off, the 5-7-5 syllable structure most often cited as being the sole 'structural rule' of haiku is based on the original Japanese constraint. However, the Japanese language and more specifically their word structure differ from English in a critical way when it comes to the definition of this structure. In the Japanese language, each sound unit is called an onji as opposed to our syllable. This unit of measure for a word is considerable more concise than what we use to define a syllable (typically only

What do you know about vampires? He asked, turning towards me. I thought about that for a second. I could make a smartass comment, and Jesse would probably be mad at me. Or try to be serious even though I was still high off the dream.
They bite people, I replied. I decided to go with the smartass comment, because I was to happy to even try to be serious. Maybe he needed to slap me
Uh yeah. What else? He seemed really confused. Probably wondering why I was acting like I was drunk. I tried to be serious.
Well They cant go out into the sunlight, but you do anyway. They have fangs, which you have. They feed on people, or animals. Uh I cant remember anything else. Am I right? He slowly nodded.
Yes, actually. Everything you said was exactly right. And about the whole sunlight thing we can go out in sunlight but if we are in it too long our skin starts to burn. He told me.

Chapter 4:Love at First Bite
Wind offered his hand to me, I took it, and I stood up. He pulled me in close to him. Once again I thought that he was going to kiss me. When I looked into his eyes, those beautiful emerald green eyes, I saw a longing. This time though he wasnt holding me down, or against any walls, or pinning me to anything so I didnt think that he would bite me. He had his arms wrapped around my waist, with his hands resting softly on my midriff. Winds arms were holding me against him, but only gently and loosely. I most definitely could have escaped his grasp, but I even more definitely didnt want to.
He was leaning into me already. I was almost completely positive that he was going to kiss me this time. But did I want him to? His face was near mine but he hadnt showed me his teeth. His face was less than an inch from my face when his took another course. He was hesitant, but he gently kissed my neck. I inhaled. A second later

Ugh kind of. I told her, trying to make my voice sound horrible. She walked over to my bed, and placed her hand on my forehead. God I hated it when parents did that. Like they could really tell you were sick by placing a hand on your forehead.
