"Wow, you have a lot of books," said Jack.
"Yup, I like to read a lot," I told him.
"Want to play a video game?" I asked him.
"Sure, what game?" Jack asked.
"Super Smash Bros. Brawl"
Jack grabbed the controllers while I got the game set up, and put my glasses on. When Jack gave me one of the controllers, he asked,
" Why are you wearing glasses?"
"I'm far sighted so I have to wear glasses to read or see far away" I told him.
"Okay, now you defiantly look like a nerd," Jack told me while laughing.
"Can we just start playing" I asked impatiently.
I played as Link, while Jack played as Ike. Jack and I were tied we both had beaten each other six times.
"Okay, this is the final round. Who ever loses has to do what the other person tells them to do" said Jack.

Jack came in and watched the movie with me. I wasn't really paying attention to the movie. I was thinking about what my mom said to me last night.

We talked for a while. They told me about how they defeated Pitch, Jack showed them the story I wrote. I wondered how Jack got it, and thought that he might of stolen it from me. I finally got the courage to ask them a question I had been thinking about for a while.
"Is there other ways of getting here besides flying" I asked

What could go wrong, oh yeah, there was that suspicion I had that if kids become afraid of what happened in Connecticut then that could mean that Pitch could come back. I hadn't told anyone about that expect for Jack, cause I couldn't keep any secrets from him.

I shied from the sun,

and that was the brightness,
now long since past.
It was an uncanny likeness,
to see the tempest you forged,
emblazoned across that face,
mirror-image of the one I adored.
He could not spread such disgrace,
such turmoil, hurt and destruction.
yet it tumbled from his lips,
about his thunderous corruption.
I remembered how you gripped my hips,
in a flash it became clear,
what you did back then,
It was always here.
Now I find that I can not sleep,
without that storm raging beside me.
It seems that I'm in too deep.
At least, now I can see,
through the blackened swirls of lies.
maybe one day I will look up to the sky,
and find it in me to sever these ties.

NyctophobiaWhat is a fear of the dark?Nyctophobia in Free Verse More Like This
Is it the fear of the unknown?
That our own two eyes can tell us nothing of what lies within?
That something lurks that is not present in the light,
something the will of our minds can not guide us past?
Is it perhaps the sense of vulnerability?
That we can not protect ourselves from that we can not see?
That you can't percieve or prevent an unseen attack?
With one sense down, how are we to defend ourselves?
Or is that the real problem?
That paranoia sets it's claws deep within,
for without our sight all senses are heightened?
Do we fear the sounds we now think we hear, the things we think touch our skin?
Maybe it's the sense of void?
The feeling there is nothing around us,
that we could slip away into this deep hole and never be found?
Knowing that the dark is nothing but an absence?
It could be our own minds we fear?
The dark illusions we create for ourselves?

Hell you got me started on the whole thing.
You were fantastic at drawing too
Man I was always jealous of that talent,
And I loved your drawings, like I once loved you.
I wish that you could have been a professional.
I would have bought your book every month y'know...
You encouraged me to write.
Back when my stories were shit,
Back when my poems were still baby's rhymes.
You taught me not to give in and I was grateful.
Now just let me finish alright?
I know that you won't speak to me.
That's okay, I admit to being an ass,
But the reason that I'm writing this poem to nobod

When I was young I was taught that pain begets pain,
Anger and animosity, malice and cruelty;
So deeply inflicted, so lovingly gifted.
I tasted of its rotten core and dared to call it sweet.
But what do I have to show for it?
White hot scars that burn in my dreams.
Reminders of a fragmented bi-polar self;
Self inflicted propaganda, to reinforce the "truth".
Truth so lovingly fabricated by a weakness within,
So desperately crying out for vindication;
Openly denying all that might shed light upon me,
Seeking only the company of shades in shadows...
Within four walls I sleep in exile;
Quietly pretending that I am still sane,
Never noticing how it has all turned out;
Alone I remain the same...
Never reaching, never living; I am free within the cage

Bullies in the HallBullies in the Hall:Bullies in the Hall in Free Verse More Like This
Bullies in the hall,
They're really big and tall.
I'm just so afraid to fall...
How I wish,
That I could be,
Free from all this misery...
Let me change it up, so you know it's a rap.
I'm really sick and tired, of this bullshit and crap!
I know you've got a taste, for my fear and my pain...
How many times have I cried these tears in the rain!
I speak from words of wisdom, I know it's hard to focus.
When the world is bearing down, like a plague of angry locusts,
You sit, you pray, hoping for a better today,
Tomorrow is another day, 'Save me!' I hear you say.
I've had enough of people that are kickin' us down,
I say this is enough, no more crap flying around!
Hold on to your hopes, because you're gonna fly high,
Watch us spread our wings, we'll soar up before we die!
Remember what you're worth, and what you are inside,
You know you have a spark, so let that be your pride.
We've all got our talents, don't let them hold you back,
Spread your wings
Beaten Black and BlueBeaten Black and Blue:Beaten Black and Blue in Free Verse More Like This
Broken and bloodied on the inside;
My world is coloured in shades of black.
But I've never understood the reason
For why I've got these scars on my back...
Cigarette burns are nothing new to my body
I took a lash from the whip just yesterday.
Why are you staring at me with those eyes again;
Is there something you'd like to say?
I've never been told to speak a word of my pain
And so I learned that I shouldn't speak...
'You'd better not say a single thing to her!'
Maybe I'm just scared and weak...
I often run to a place that's far away;
It's just a little corner inside my mind.
I've tried to forget it again and again
But it comes back to me all the time...
These people think that they know me
But a smile is just a mask to hide.
This is the crime that I keep a secret
Because it's locked away inside...
You'll never be able to help me
So don't give me your pity and tears.
Just tell me that you won't do the same thing
Because that is the worst of m

I'm sick and tired of trying hard
I'm tired of slaving away.
I'm tired of doing everything
And just living day to day...
I'm tired of being a person
I'm tired of being me.
What happened to the past
Did I lose it out at sea?
I think I'm simply frustrated
These words I cannot string.
Is this the end of my poetry
Or the revival of a king?
"Will I reach the peak, or I will die here in ignominy"

DelusionDelusion:Delusion in Free Verse More Like This
You've covered yourself with blankets
Like you're hiding from the bogey man.
You're so enraptured with your own ego
That you reject the helping hand!
You twisted what was a friendly gesture
And called it your very right.
Now it's time for you to fade away
Into the bitter cold of night.
I'm about to show you reality
So stay tuned and watch me work.
I'll paint you a vivid picture
That'll give your heart a jerk...
See you thought you should be top side;
Basking in the morning glory
But you're sitting in a filthy sewer
This is your fucking story.
When first you stepped upon the crowds;
Like a sea of angry sharks
They rose upon a swelling wave
And sent you somewhere dark.
Bleeding, chopped and mutilated
Hung like a chunk of rotting meat...
Just give up on your diginity
And accept your own defeat.
"You look so beautiful, when you're crying..."

OBSCUREOBSCURE:OBSCURE in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The flower of midnight blooms
As the wind will sway the trees.
But my corpse will dangle helpless
As it is blown by the breeze.
Feel the prick of final judgement
As I am cast into the flame.
Born again into this world;
Where my life is just a game.
I think and try to remember
But the night is simply cold
I return to the ancient tree
where once my soul was sold.
I gather the rope and ladder
while the moon is shining bright.
I kill myself again;
In the quiet of the night...
A lonely obscure defiance;
Where my silent tears will fall.
For none will ever remember
A quiet broken doll...

What is Love?What is Love?:What is Love? in Free Verse More Like This
What is love but a simple impulse
An electrical signal that comes from the brain.
What is love but a debilitating sickness
It weakens us utterly from the waves of pain.
To what do we owe the pleasure of love
Does it come from a matter of personal taste?
To what do we owe the pain of love
As though all of our efforts are put to waste...
Why do we seek to fall in love
Is it because we fear a death alone?
Or perhaps there is a darker reason
One for which we need to atone...
Rationalise carefully, your reason for love
Perhaps the truth is deeper than you think.
Is your partner a genuine object of affection
Or simply a piece of the missing link?
Love can be a wonderous anchor
It brings us down to the safety of sanity
But abuse it once, and you will suffer
Such is the gift of humanity...
"Yet even with these weighty words, I am still a slave to love..."

So from someone who's been watching, let me lay my heart bare
I want to show you all the special things, about the girl for whom I care
She always does her very best, no matter how tough the task
Even when she's struggling, she puts on a brave mask
She's always trying to learn new things, just for a chance to make you proud
She can be a little bit quiet, but I think that's better than being loud
She's not the very best in sports, I know she can be kind of a klutz
But she smiles and goes on anyway, now that takes a lot of guts...
She gets embarassed pretty easily and gets far too nervous to talk
But I know she'd like it if we held hands, whenever we went for a walk
She doesn't need a lot of pretty things, she just wants someone who cares
I bet she'd like to have someone, whom she knew would always be there
I remember when she tried to cook
