In eighth grade I attended a sex education class at my church. Gasp and wonder as you may; it wasn't a Christian church, but that's beside the point.
With sexual education one generally learns how to protect their self. Fortunately, this class taught me how to do just that. But, there's one fact; I'm a lesbian. What your eyes are about to encounter may never have to apply to me.
Being that it was a unit on protection, my classmates and I were taught how to use condoms. There was even a whole session dedicated to condom activities. After I walked into that room, I don't know if I made the mistake of sitting next to the teacher or if he sat n

I want to be in all the fields you've sown
I remember what you taught
I try to do the things I ought
But you were with me when we flew
There'll never be another one like you

Like all of our fields, like all of our pines
I want to curl up in your arms
Where you're soft, where you're warm
Tell me everything's all right
Tell me the dark is just one night

I'm gonna follow, you always know
You picked up and gave me all my gear
I'm in the starshine evermore
So if I see you, let's do the tour

And your golden lashes lift to the sky.
I drown in your eyes that reflect the soft clouds,
While your gentle heart smiles and,
My empty soul fills with light.
Breezes whisper through your soft, flaxen hair,
And your innocence brings tears to my eyes.
A light that brightens hearts of void,
Delicate as glass you turn to face me.
Light as a feather you touch my hand,
And I ascend to heaven when you smile radiantly.

as the waves crashed swiftly at my feet.
The soft sand in my shoes,
the brisk water at my ankles,
the warm golden sun on my face;
I was in paradise.
I stopped for a moment to catch my breath.
My soul soared across the vastness of the ocean,
as I sat down along the water's edge.
A gentle breeze caressed my face
and embraced me in a comfort no words could describe
as the beautiful sound of crashing waves filled my ears,
and I relaxed.
I lifted my eyes to the sun:
the source of warmth that sustained me.
It rose with power as it approached the open sky,
welcoming the new day.
I soaked in my glorious

Distracting your thoughs
Decieving your heart
Love is a mirror that reflects your mind
Faking your smiles
Hearing the sound
A record you'll always remind
Scatterd, lost, nowhere to be found
Love is a million butterflies
Falling down from the sky
Like a thousend different colours
Silently whispering their goodbye
Love is a drug that keeps you alive
It can make your heart beat
At the cost of your life
BladeThe sword is drawnBlade5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sound echoes deep and long
I stand in the dark
In the distance I hear a lark
Its song sings deep to my heart
The dance begins, I practice my art
Each move is careful, fluid
I must be focused, lest all be ruined
Each crescendo brings a shift
The song lets my feet drift
I dance circles, blade curving
Flashes appear, I am learning
Inside the heart, there light lies
Small beams escape as I cry
My voice adds to the song
The light lances, sharp and long
I am of the light
I can withstand the night
The blade is my focus point
But to work I need to move all my joints
In one instant the song ends
The final move,

My hand would never leave yours.
I'd cover you from all the fire raining down,
Love you with every honest piece of me.
If it were up to just me,
I'd fight off all your enemies,
and protect you from all the evil that's befallen you.
I'd take back your innocence and
place it safely back home in your heart
so your eyes can shine for reasons other than tears.
If it were just me and you and
the whole world went to sleep for a while,
I'd cradle you in my arms and cry with you
until all your demons were cast out into my hands
and purified by your beauty and
made into angels.
I know you're scared a

Emily Dickinson ImitationWe are but strangers on this rockEmily Dickinson Imitation2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Whose purpose evades us still,
But to witness the evolution of its splendor
And to reject the unreal.
Unknown remain our origins
For answers we take to the sky.
But what, lest a ruse
Can its silent breadth belie?
It is the Way of Mortals
Most of us endure.
We beseech the physicist, the priest
For knowledge fair but impure.
Even in this there may be Truth
Shadowed by the Earth's grandeur.

Only wishing to find hope and peace in shadows.
Ringleaders leading the simple minded,
Greiving over thoughts and actions once done.
Ignoring the consequences of pretense and lies,
Vexing those who know more.
Expecting noone to reach out and cry,
Never believing what was spoken.
So trapped that...
Saying sorry was all they could do.

Ashley Arthur rappelled down the side of the circus tent, feet bouncing against the heavy canvas flaps. She kept one gloved hand behind her, wrapped around the climbing rope, loosening every time she took a jump. The rope made a fizzing sound as it slipped across the carabina attached to her belt.
She had nearly reached the bottom. The entrance to the big top was only a few metres to her right, bathed in the sodium glow of the security light. It was chained shut, but Ash was betting thered be enough give in the canvas to squeeze through.
Jump! Fizz, crunch. She was on the ground

Hello again, Eve. Fancy meeting you in the twilight, here, on the fringes of Eden's border.
I have just returned from the Land of Nod, East of Paradise.
Why, I do believe it was the very direction in which you were staring at so forlornly
when I happened upon you.
Were you expecting my visit, sister, or has captivity finally made you
hunger for something just a little bit more?
You do realize that the fruit which grows in the center of your home
can quench all of your thirsts.
Ah, I see. God has forbade you to eat of his most delicious food.
It bothers me not if you choose to stay here
It is no swea

as the other stones pass me by

To fall in love with someone,

because time flows around me
and where it goes I can not follow...
I am forever frozen.

Tomorrow Never ComesWhen the world was new and I still youngTomorrow Never Comes6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
"When is tomorrow," I asked my mom,
"because yesterday you said today was tomorrow,"
so I asked, "when will tomorrow come?"
Gently my mother explained to me,
it's never a time in which you can be,
tomorrow is always the next day,
not a time in which you can stay.
Asking again the question where it had started
I inquired when we could go to the park
the answer was the same today, "tomorrow",
that word that makes time today to borrow.
So don't tell me later when you have time,
give me this moment now to be mine,
cause I'm tired of hoping for tomorrows
when tomorrow never comes.
KISS OF DEATHWith you or without you I am torn,KISS OF DEATH4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Doomed to lose either way.
To live a life of bitterness,
Or feel your scorn,
Each and every day.
If I chose death and you chose me,
Where would that leave you?
How could I be so selfish,
Could I not even see,
The pain Id put you through?
I never really got a choice at all,
I would simply stumble by.
Now I finally get a chance,
With someone to catch my fall,
And all I do is make you cry.
All your words of conquering fear,
And there you sit unafraid.
A reminder of what once was,
Put me in your tender care,
Like a glorious serenade.
I left myself in deaths embrace,
Instead of choosing

For I cant have the one thing I desire
To have kids and for a man to call me his wife
This burns in my heart like a great fire
I now must try to warm Deaths cold heart
And teach him the meaning of love
This I must soon start
For if I dont I shall see the skies above
He gives me a choice to make
As he brings plague to my town
I can choose to pick another soul for him to take
And he will let me live while I feel down
The other choice is to leave at his side
And go into the dark
To forever be his bride
Without feeling true loves spark
I ran from him for days
But in th
