Because I know we are done.
I Don't Believe You AnymorePenetrate the silk laid airI Don't Believe You Anymore in Free Verse More Like This
Full of over composed melodies
You dreamt up in your cold soul
As you laid each brick into my heart
And poured the cement over each wound
That calloused me to hate you.
A text from you pangs me,
I want to call you and scream I love you
But I know the phone would ring
And reverberate your true feelings.
You cared enough to bait me like a fish
But you gutted me for pursing your dreams
In ways you gave up on.
I fed your narcissism that was coated
In depression like a slick tar wash,
And although I want you to escape,
I hope your skin burns with fire and fear
In each waking moment you lied of your feelings.

I am not invincible.
But, you give me jitters and
I give you life with each suck and drag.

From where my sunshine has flickered
among the shadows and given me a hand
when I have retreated into corners

I am solar powered by him,
And even when the storm clouds have
Become bountiful in my life
He still sustains me through it all.
I'm Sorry, DadYour smell reminds me of home. I don't remember when I first encountered it, or placed a photograph of you in my mind when it happened, but it makes me nostalgic when I smell you on my sweaters that I hugged you in.

You may not know this, Dad, but I read the letter in my medical folder. The one that is tattered and worn, the one in which I cried to when I first read it as I waited for the doctor 18 years later. It had my diagnosis of my complex heart problem and a request from the Chaplin to keep you ashore "to be there for your baby." I wasn't even a year old yet, and you and Mom fought for my well-being. You were there for your baby, and you always have been. Do you remember that letter, Dad? I hadn't realized it then, but you loved me in your arms when you could hold me, and your hands clutched mine when I was frail in bed after s

My teeth tease you shut,
My hands slap down on a
Wooded table handed down
From my parents' shed,
Where all the old furniture lives.
Your words shove me across
Strangled air that once was fueled
By dire need to be satisfied.
Now it is filled with tears spilling
On the dirty carpet as I cannot
Find your eyes and
Your ears are pinned with cloth.

And fall into words we whispered
As she still heals me with her warmth.

The air was black and thick. Or so I thought to myself as I lay there. How can air be thick? This air is, though. I inhale its bitter viscosity and it coats my lungs in a film of tangible abhorrence. It's been this way for so long that I can't remember there having been anything before it. With no recollection of a time before, it's nearly impossible to imagine something to come after this. But that's exactly what's happening. Even now forces are working and things out there, beyond this room, are changing.
Time is passing. I know it is because the change I feel is steadily growing. Though the palpable things around me remain stagnant, the change continues, it moves and shifts. A sound emerges. At first I can't comprehend the fact of sound. It's been so long since my ears have received an audible sound, a sound that wasn't a whisper of the past. My head is aching now. The sound it is confusing and consuming. It hurts. It won'

You look up to find that not a soul is around.
You wonder what has brought you to this lonely place
Where Mother Earth looks Death right in the face.
Rising from the ashes you dust yourself off
Turning towards the sun and stifling a cough.
You know not what lies ahead, nor what you left behind
But that’s just what you’re looking to find.
First steps unstable, wobbly, clumsy at best
You move like a young bird fresh out of the nest.
Your journey begins just like any other before
With you left to ponder just what is in store.
Gaining your balance you break out in a run
Your eyes rendered blind by the evening sun.
To the horizon you continue to dash
As you speed and tumble through fields of ash.
Finally you collapse in a cloud of powdered dreams
And your life slips away, or so it seems.
You wake to find yourself in bed
And a sudden realization fills you with dread.
Sheets turn to ash, blackened smog fills the air
You stop and wonder just

These questions and debatable answers float around for days and even months or years to
follow. The most important of these questions, though being; how can we prevent this
happening in the future? Dianna Boggia, writer of the article Family Matters: Holding

Connecticut. “How can we protect our children?” Her solution to this is through practices
of simply ignoring and sheltering children form the fact that life comes with violence
and negativity. But, is leaving our children blind to the realities of the world really
helping them? Or is it setting them up to be scared and defenseless pawns in this game we

We have to make them as knowledgeable as possible so that they know the right way to

InsomniaThe clock ticks away in the cornerInsomnia in Free Verse More Like This
Time passing ever so slowly
Sitting on my bed and staring out the window
To the darkened streets below
I observe something very clear
The hours of morn are creeping upon the world
As I sit stagnant on this cold hard bed
The world moves about me and passes me by
For you see, time waits for no man
And for no man will the world ever stop
And so sitting here alone and unchanging
I let time get the better of me
The clock hands read 4 a.m.
Yet still I sit in an icy silence and stare
For what I am looking I do not know
And dare not ask myself
For fear of what the answer might be
Or the lack of receiving one
My insomnia consumes me
And before I can even let out a plea for release
It takes me to the morning hours
In which I cannot sleep
So my day then drones on with the usual blur
So monotonous are my movements
To nearly the point that it is like I'm not even there
And perhaps I am not
For maybe my mind has drifted off
Off to a place of a waking dreamland
ReflectionsI want to live in a reflectionReflections in Free Verse More Like This
To see what I cannot see
For do the beings of under-water dwellings see
The world above or like the land beings
Do they see only a reflection on the surface?
Can they see past what is their world,
Past all that they have grown to know?
Or are they trapped like all of us,
Ignorant to what lie above and below?
Do some brave and lonely spirits wonder
Past the gates of what is true in the eyes
Of those whom hold the lies deep within them?
Do any stand out above the rest with voice crisp and mind clear?
Or like the creature lurking down in the bottomless abysmal pits of fear,
Do they reside in the safety of primal intentions?
I want to live in a reflection
As to be unblinded and to see
To see what i could not before
What had been hidden so long
But would have been found for only if
I had tried to look and tried to grasp the meaning of it all
But for so long i left it there unchecked and uncared for
Like a forgotten child it lay alone
Defenseless and afraid

Time would pause when I gave the word

No pokemon I used to own

One minute had lots of HP
No match for Quil's agility
And I discovered that statistics stand
Upon pixels of salt and pixels of sand
I hear Lugia's bells a ringing
Ho-oh is flying above singing
Use my HP, attack, defense
Losing to Quilava, it makes no sense
Lost to Quilava, I can't explain
Once I faint I'm not a uber
Quil's agile as a bird
That was when HP ruled the world
It was Lugia's crazy wild wind
Lowered my HP to let Quil in
Melted diamonds and the sound of flames
Trainer couldn't believe what I became
Other legendaries wait
For my title, and all my plates
Just come pixels on a tiny screen
Oh who would ever want to be king?
I hear Lugia's bells a ringing
Ho-oh is flying above singing
Use my HP, attack, defense

Summary of system:
Atlas Cecrops came to power after the time of Caecus. He blamed all of the troubles and darkness that Versicolor faced on the “Colorless Ones” claiming that they drained the life out of the land. At first his views were shunned, but they had sparked civil unrest between those with color and those without. After four years of rising tensions a civil war broke out and the colorless, who were greatly outnumbered, were pushed to the boundaries of Versicolor.
Seizing this opportunity Cecrops campaigned again and was widely accepted and supported by the people. He rose to power and set up an “electable” senate. Though, the people can only choose from a group of people approved by Cecrops. His

Throughout the lone years, Kent has been very worried about the fate of his mother. Her cry had sounded awful and he feared she had been killed by her own mate. He felt guilty whenever he thought of it and would blame himself for the possible death of his mother. Sometimes he tried to think she was still alive, but usually his thoughts turned negative again. He could not imagine his father Mingan would have ever forgiven her for having taken care of him.
It was two winters later ever since he had left his birth pack. Kent had fled from his family far away, out of North Carolina. He had spent the majority of his life running, masking his scent and a few times he was forced to fly across dangerous rivers. His scent should be untraceable if his brothers and father had planned to go after him. He rarely took breaks and his sleeping pattern was weird ever since he returned to drinking blood of his prey, which he hadn’t been allowed to from his mother. Sometimes he wa

Kent trembled on his paws as he wandered through the cave. The path seemed to be a long hallway and it reminded him of the Forest Den. His heart began to beat faster when he realized what he was doing and he paused for a moment, looking back at the entrance and hearing the howls of his parents and brothers. He whimpered softly and he felt tired from all the running. Kent reclined on the ground and began to pant. He wanted to go back to his family, but a voice in his head told him to keep going. The howls rang in his mind and he lifted his head, opening his jaws to howl back, but then he abruptly shut down his jaws. The mental pull he felt forced him to stand up and move forward. The ground felt cold on his paws and the cave smelled like dead, rotting animals. He wondered if there would be anything in there that would be alive, and he shivered at the thought. There was not a single bat in the cave and other small prey was nowhere to be seen. The path was narrow,

No one cared who I am,
until I placed this mask on my face.
They took my mommy,
took my home,
and threw me to the side.
I felt forgotten in the world.
Then came along another human,
much different from the ones that stole mommy.
He stood up to all the bad people,
he even fought mommy himself...
I know he did,
I heard her yell to me at the end,
"He is good!"
I still hid from him,
because people still do scare me lots.
day by day,
I sit with mommy,
chat with her,
even though I know she doesn't hear me.
Sometimes I wonder about the nice human.
If he's okay,
has he run into the bad people again,
what would have happened if I would have gone with him?
I'm happy he tried to help mommy.
I'm starting to trust people now.
I'm thinking about going with a person if I find a good one.
One like the boy that helped mommy and me.
