Love is so ComplicatedThere is always a reason why we have to move on, to say goodbye to the feelings we wanted to stay forever. For love has to set its wings free and find the right place it should be. I cried for the time you were almost mine, I cry for the memories you've left behind, I cry for the times I thought I had you. Never take for granted the person who truly cares for you. Remember, feelings just like people grow tired too, when it's neither appreciated nor returned no matter how great you thought the love is. Love comes without warnings, no flashy signs or wake up calls. It is always present, but once taken for granted you may wake up one day only to find out that it is gone forever. Say what you want to say when you have the feeling and the chance. Tomorrow maybe a day too late. Our deepest regrets maybe the things we did not do the opportunities we missed, and the things we let unsaid. I love you but I can't express it because I know deep in my heart that you could never be mine. I tried toLove is so Complicated in Teen More Like This
Quotes IIIIts amazing how much somebody can break your heart and still you love him or her with every broken piece of it. Its when your mind says let go but your heart tells you to hold on. Its when your mind says be still but your heart screams go on. Its when your mind says lets leave but your heart whispers lets stay. Its when your mind says this isnt right but your heart knows no other way. Stuck? Some would say the best thing to do is move onQuotes III in General More Like This
Theoretically speaking: accepting and trying to move on sounds easy right? But application of that theory simply means: die first and live again! When do you move on anyway? You move on when your heart finally understands that there is no turning back. You just have to accept the fact that some things can never be and that you should be contented with things as they are. Leaving is a choice. Staying is a choice. But you can never really ask someone to stay or to leave. Its a choice they have t

First, someone you love but you have to hate...There's so many reasons why we have to hate a person we had loved but all those reasons sum up to one. You would really hate them because they had hurt you. when you love a person....you can't just hurt them, you can't just leave them, you can't forget them and you even don't get sick of their presence but that person you love can hurt you all they want, even forget about you easily and leave you whenever they feel to. Its unfair right?! Who wouldn't hate those kind of people? But we have to realize that love is not enough to make a relationship work. We need trust, respect, time, effort and total commitment. If that person doesn't show respect, doesn't earn your trust and can't keep a promise. Then how matter many times they say " I love you" those words will be empty. Just take time to listen to what they don't say, take time to look at what they don't show because there are secrets hidden
QuotesHave you ever felt that feeling whenever you see someone, you freeze and your heart starts to beat so fast and you have to hold on to something so you wouldnt fall? Sometimes when they talk to you, do you utter stupid words and end up embarrassing yourself? Its not that you want it, but just the presence of that person makes your heart beat faster and slower at the same time. Would you be brave and admit your feelings? What if its simply not meant to be, do you give up? Or keep trying and end up with nothing? Well, thats love. Its irony speaks, but you got to take risks to get answers. When you meet someone and you gradually fall in love with that person, try to express your love to her because every moment you wasted would be equal to tons of regret in the end. Dont wait until its too late to tell someone how much you love, how much you care. Because when they are gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry they wont hear you anymore.Quotes in Teen More Like This
Love is like the universeThe star stays with the moonLove is like the universe in Free Verse More Like This
On the same velvet night sky
Though she knows
She's not the only star on moon's life
The moon though he have many stars
Still patiently awaits
The only star that brighten up his face
The sun beams her light
To give life
To bring hope
To earth who only ignores her
The earth waited for the night
To envelop his entire sky
And again sorrowfully look up
To gaze upon his only star

I'm a little distracted and sleepy right now as I have a lot on my mind and didn't get very much sleep last night, but maybe a little writing exercise will put me in better form.
Well, another strange snippet of a memory just came back to me. As is usually the case with these sorts of recollections I can remember a few highlighted seconds and I have a loose web of vague impressions holding them together, more or less, into a sort of situation or short series of events. Well, it may not sound like much, but great events from the ancient past have been chiseled out of the marble of history using considerably less. Maybe with a little deductive reasoning and common sense I can flesh this one out with a certain degree of reliable accuracy.
This happened back over 30 years ago, between '81 and '83 I believe. I was at Santa Monica beach. I don't recall who I went with, who was with me, but I usually went with someone else. I did upon rare occasions go all by myself, but I don't recall that

Remember being little?
Hard to believe we were ever small enough that people could actually pick us up and carry us around.
I remember when I was really little my uncle Frank used to give me...I think they call them "airplane rides"? I don't remember what we called them, but he would spin around real fast while holding me by the hands or forearms. It would be pretty hard to find someone who could do that to me now though.
I remember back when I was in kindergarten I had fallen off of the top of the monkey bars and landed flat on my back. If something like that happened to me now I'm sure a few bones would have been broken. I remember the teacher holding me up in her arms as she told the other kids she had to take me too the nurse's office. Amazing that I was so light a young woman could pick me up and carry me around so easily. But we were all little once.

Blind eyes focused on oblivion
Staring passed their own destruction.
Vast armies of eyes
Staring at forgetfulness
Mistaken for prebirth fantasies
Throats mute with
The silence of awe.
Green eternities of destruction
Weigh down and extrude
The soul out of substance
And the emotion out of mind.
Post apocalyptic breeze
Blows putrid oders playfully
About the ruins.
Better death than slavery
For those born free.
Please don't talk to me
In the language of ghosts,
The dead can't speak
And they have no writing in Hell.
Run around with scriptures
Folded in your shoes.
Miracles happen in your sleep,
Blessings are only child's wishes
And heaven is only something
Poor people dream about.

Cream raised her head from the field of flowers, where she had been meticulously searching for the perfect piece to pick, to her tiny compatriot circling her head. Following his stubby blue arm that pointed off to the road nearby, she saw a slow moving, rather despondent fox shuffling along the path to nowhere in no hurry.
"Oh!" Cream exclaimed, hastening her task. She already held several flowers in her hand. But she was missing an essential plant that would complete the set of blue, passionate pink, yellow, orange, and lilac arrangement that she had already created from the available selection in the field.
Scouring quickly, she finally found it, leaping in joy when she saw those white petals peeking out at her from its brother and sisters, hoping to be added to the special bouquet. She plucked it from its roots, nestling the flower in the center of all the others, and dusted off her orange dress so as not to appear dirty when she went over to Tails. Wa

Tails leaned against the tree at the edge of the forest. He folded his hands on his stomach and sighed as his eyes made their way to the night sky. He could see the millions of tiny dots that lit up the heavens, creating its constellations and making the entire dark blue canvas more beautiful than it already was.
However, Tails' mind was far away from the magnificence of the stars as he remembered times past, spent in the sky and traveling with familiar companions. Some he still saw on a daily basis while others...
"I wish you were here," he sighed again as he closed his eyes and tried to remember happier times.
His thoughts focused particularly on one person who had journeyed with them on their last adventure. He could still remember when he first met her, how he had been entranced by her eyes, her figure, her voice. Her voice, he thought. It could make his heart burst out of his chest like a flower.
He chuckled as he remembered the fun times they had together, especially w

The sunlight peeked silently into the small room. Dust particles swirled around in it gracefully as it slowly found it's way to the bed in the room, along with it's small occupant. On top of the white bed, snuggled under some yellow blankets, was a small beige rabbit.The young rabbit, Cream, snored softly. Her tiny chest rose and fell, causing her small blue chao, Cheese, to rise and fall each time.
The intruding light hit Cheese first, causing the small creature to blink bleary eyed and give a small yawn, his tongue touching the blanket. Whining in his native language, he spit out the taste of fur from the fuzzy blanket and looked around.
Stretching his back, arms, and tiny wings, Cheese flew up into the air to wake himself up before flying over his owner's head. Hovering slightly above her, he cooed and called to her in his incomprehensible language known only to a few.
Cream yawned and slowly opened her eyes to be greeted by the already bright-eyed chao. Lo

And now I finally see-
The true face of faith that I once held so dearly
This sensation is somewhat familiar-
Thickening tears becoming entangled
I clench my trembling fists-
As a desperate prayer exits my tainted lips
Blindly lead down this beaten path
Reaching the end forces me to despise the past
Hymns of comfort have left me feeling torn
This flawed cross can't protect me anymore
I always reached for what wasn't even there
The darkness becomes clear as the light disappears
I kiss the regretful abyss / Embracing the rift I once lived
My pain and peace endlessly twist / Memories that no longer exist
You were just a well-practiced act
And you managed to slip through my hands
Let the halos and golden gates be erased
I shouldn't fall if there's no such thing as grace
It was all just a metaphor to help my mind cope
Fusing night terrors with illusions and hope

The Unseen Life
I thought pain was created to fade
But it seems like my life was crafted to break
So I apologize to the mirror and say "I'm sorry, it's too late."
I can't even look at my own face, as I can never accept my mistakes
I realize that I am brokenly made
My mind bleeds away the memories I've wasted
Remorse begins to slowly fill in the gaps that are left
This stained razor blade leaves every dark moment perfectly divided
I try not to indulge in act of prayer, because I refuse to ever confess
Even in death I will never rest
All visible colors descend into the ground
And time drifts off to sleep
Every sharp outline ascends into the clouds
As this reality begins to dream
This world has truly abandoned me
I keep on doing what I've done
So I can't deny that I've forsaken hope
I couldn't stop the emptiness once it had begun
But I had no other choice, because I was left alone
All I have ever had was myself to disown

A pretty doll in a shop
She sits and waits for her time to come
Until her loneliness stops
She waits and waits, full of false hope
That someone will come take her home
But when all the other dolls have been bought
She wonders why she's still alone
She spends her time thinking about
Her imaginary faults
Assuming that she's ugly because
Why else has she not been sold?
And to this day, she's wanted to say
Why am I the only doll that's still here?
She's fed up of loneliness, fed up of waiting
For something she once had that disappeared
Emilie sits upon the shelf
A pretty doll in a shop
She sits and waits for her time to come
But her loneliness never stops
She's so fed up that she's stopped trying
To be the perfect one
Because deep down she already knows
Her perfect one has been and gone

Who thought a heart could break this quickly?
One glance, one stare
Did you even remember that I was there?
Your eyes locked on her face
Who thought a heart could crumble into decay?
There are so many things I want to say
So many things I want to scream in your face
So many tears I tried to hide
When I said I felt better, could you tell that I lied?
Could you tell that this is eating away at me?
The image won't go away
I try to remind myself of happiness and glee
But I remember when you were with her, and not me
Now you tell me you love me, I trust you with that
And I want you to know that I love you too
But seriously, I'm starting to feel insecure
I want you to know that I love you, and only you
But, please tell me, could you tell me that too?

Please don't ask me about mine
If only I could play the violin
I'd share my past through sorrowful chords
Vibrato on strings would be my voice
Fighting my demons with imaginary swords
Although I'm limited to words on paper
And the words aren't sung by a beautiful voice
These words make my story into a song
And this song confronts you with a choice
You can close your eyes
And pretend this is a fairytale
Pretend it's a meaningless story
That was never once true
Or you can open your eyes
And realise deep down
That the story isn't just about me
That you're the main character too
If you don't want to tell your story
As it is, spoken word to word
Turn your art into your voice
And you will always be heard
A picture speaks a thousand words

A Wish For Freedom
I, a child birthed in chains
Raised in a cage
But on this day- they will break
I was taught self-hatred
Learning that the differences were divided
Among the people who are considered “civilized “
Forcefully combining my fear and envy
As I was raised in the middle of this society
My power and pride were deprived of me
I was only an empty vessel
Believing that all promises were fabled
But once upon a calm- I witnessed hope's revival
Wings sprout from my tongue / Words from my soul are sung
A new voice's journey has begun / Let the era of silence be undone
Obtaining peace of mind / Experiencing freedom of heart
Allowing the colors to shine / The future will blind the scars
I had to fight the system; I had to stop the cycle
It was either my downfall or survival
So I reversed this downward spiral

Hearts will fall sick and spirits will feel blue
But after the storm our pride will become immune

According to a new Thomson Reuters survey of women in management at firms between 2005 and 2010, it appears that technology companies are remaining tight-lipped about their efforts to 'promote' women.
An analysis of the survey by the Huffington Post shows that, when compared with other sectors, technology firms aren't as open about reporting how many women they employ. Only nine of the 254 tech companies included in the study shared the breakdown of women among their overall work forces and management teams. Of those that submitted data, the researchers found that women occupied 15% of management positions at tech companies in 2010, compared with 33% in financial services and 34% in health care.
In fact, the number of women in the IT field and those who are heading to college to pursue technology degrees is actually on the decline.
