Teaching Summer to BreatheSummer will always remind me of hot, sweltering nights spent drinking sangria, through the dripping fairy lights of your bedroom window. A sticky, starry sky looked back at us, the glow of the moon almost golden in the heat. Fourteen meant we weren't growing up fast enough and a liquor cabinet key seemed to hold the answer to that problem.Teaching Summer to Breathe in Emotional More Like This
You taught me how to drink that night.
(You also showed me how beautiful it was to just hold your breath till your head spins and reality seems like it is going to fade further and further away.)
Six summers ago I met a boy who liked to tell me how much like summer I was. He was big boned and thin skinned and the first time I told him he wasn't mine to keep, he left handprints on my skin that reminded you of a canvas covered in autumn leaves that you saw in New York. Then you proceeded to break every single window in his house (Yes, even the one in the attic he loved so much.)
You taught me how to smile through heartbreak that night.

His shoes were converse, the kind of the skinny intellectual who had just enough money to buy one pair of decent shoes. she never really liked skinny intellectuals, yet did find herself considering them sometimes, in the way she considered coffee that was tongue scalding (horribly and without excuse).
it is odd then, that she still doesn't regret his monsoon flavoured kiss, the kind that made your tongue bleed with its passion, its heat.
he drew in uneasy catches of breath as he snored in the heat of the summer night, nights when she would stay up and listen to cars that passed by, pretending they were a waterfall instead of the cold harsh truth of metal against concrete, just so she could sleep as soundly as him.

Another Language called EnglishI took your adjectives for granted. There was something about the way you skipped over your 's'es and gleaned over your 'i's and 'e's, that never really made me want to kiss you. You'd sit there with your languid fingers clutching a book that was half finished, and read me words that were completely mispronounced. It would prickle me under my skin and I would grit my teeth, wondering when you would stop. I would never understand the english language you thought you spoke, and your confidence in your own words annoyed me.Another Language called English in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

It was because her parents had named her for the grandmother who had broken her mother’s heart. The grandmother whose heart was supposed to have melted from her birth and hadn’t.
That was why her mother barely looked at her. That was why she called her ‘girl’.
That was why she liked to pretend she was the quiet woman in the background of an old black and white movie. Because everything here was like an old black and white movie.
[And if she really looked back, her mother had never appreciated the elegance of the 1950s enough.]
It was because she hated surprises. The surprise she got on her sixth birthday when her father left taught her just how a single person had the ability of taking your soul, splitting it in two and wearing it on their breast pocket like a white carnation waiting to die.
That was why when she lifted a book, she looked at the last page first.
That was why her namelessness had become a comfort to her.
That was why sh

My father never read me the story of Icarus. I found it for myself. I suppose he did not want me to know what it was like to almost touch the stars. But it was only after I had read the story did I even try to reach so far. It is a little like falling in love...and then drowning in the sea.
(I would be lying if I said the fall didn't break everything I had once believed was solid.)
My science teacher knew well that I was a dreamer. When I told her I believed fairytales were as real as love is, I could see the disapproval and disappointment in her eyes. I suppose thats why in her classroom, when I was asked what the greatest force in the universe was, I answered love. I suppose thats why she laughed and reminded me that love was as much a fairytale as the fairytales I believed in.

You whipped the reigns clumsily, yet it was all the reindeer needed before they thrust themselves forward, the jolt of the sleigh causing you to stumble and throwing you off your footing and you would have fallen had it not been for the hands on your shoulders pushing you upright. You threw a grin over your shoulder at the fairy as she settled back in her seat, returning your smile with a sweet curve of her lips. Forcing your attention back to the icy run ahead, you allowed a shaky breath to escape your lips as the reindeer charged forward.
“Ah, crud!” You cried to yourself, whimpering slightly as the sleigh plowed vertically up the wall and then back down, past pillars of ice and over juts of glistening blue, excited shrieks soon tumbling from your throat as adrenaline pumped through your veins.

You are forced to accept this person as 'pretty'.

Gentlemen, today I speak to you
To convey an issue that has plagued the core of our community.
For so long have we been considered second-class;

But today is not about freedom, today is about honour,
Because there are many writers that still seek to shame us all...

Such a simple word, spewed without thought.
"I wish you'd die, I wish you'd be killed."
But what if we actually gave meaning to those words?
Can you understand the emotion, the magnitude, the weight,
Of actually seeing the life of an individual depart?
Can you look them in the eyes, as they bleed into your hands;
Observing their final moments, as the light fades from their eyes?
Or are you simply a soft-hearted coward,
Sitting fat behind a computer, wishing death upon others?
To say that one is deserving of death,
Suggests that you are ready to kill.
And if indeed you are ready to kill,
Then you too must be prepared to die.

Wearing eyeliner made of contempt and disdain.
His cheap cologne invades your nostrils immediately
And you quickly suppress a cough.
"Yes, yes, indeed we have to review this...er, many things are involved."
His face is powdered with a layer of self-importance;
Lips reddened by the polite harshness he spews.
His forked tongue flickers as he prattles on
And you're really getting quite tired.
"Oh I'm sorry! Of course, of course I understand; but my way is much better!"
You're getting really bored now, so you take a look around the room.
The expectation is to see it bedecked with acolades;
Yet bare walls, cold and empty, are all that greets you.
"Are you listening to me, I'm telling you why this isn't good enough. LISTEN TO ME!"
You take a look at the cup of coffee you were offered,
Cheap and lukewarm; you narrow your eyes.
"Is there a problem? I'm being honest, this is for YOUR OWN GOOD!"

The spirits whisper on a chilling wind
As the blood continues to flow.
I can hear the demons screaming within
As the darkness continues to grow...
Humankind will always be foolish;
Rash decisions are an instinctive need.
But how could they have forgotten our ways;
Tradition is lost to greed...
The zealous will kill the innocent again
As the greedy play out a game of chess.
A book of gods becomes a creed;
It is a ragged shell at best...
My sisters die in the tens of hundreds
And innocent girls are slaughtered like swine.
I'm afraid that in this dying world;
The God of Blood shall dine...
The blind shall follow in his burning steps;
They will see within him a flame and fire.
And he knows that the hearts of passionate men
Are easily laced with glorious desire...
In dreams he calls and grants them strength
He sends his 'angels' to enchant the night.
He turns the blind into seeing creatures
And robs them of the light...

This is a song for the hopeless, the outgunned and the outmanned.
This is one for the sinners, and the non-believers too,
This is a song for all those people, people just like YOU!
This is the anthem of the normal, the oppressed and the abused,
This is a song for those people hidden from everybody's views.
This is the prayer of the unwanted, the unneeded and the small,
This is one for the unheeded, so let's give it our all!
This is a song for the people, who always just want to cry,
This is the anthem for those who have once wanted to die!
This is a song for all the people, that are dead inside,
This is a song for everyone, who has ever cried.

WarmthTrickling down my face,Warmth in Free Verse More Like This
Your hand touches me sweetly.
Let’s just lie here forever,
And forget that world exists.
Kisses on the cheek,
Melting me into a million pieces.
Let’s leave it behind,
And start anew.
Smiles that won’t cease,
Making it feel as if we were in heaven.
Let’s go to space,
And dance in the Milky Way.
Warmth that spreads,
Coxing me to stay.
But where are you?
That warmth isn’t here anymore,
I can’t find it at all,
You must have took it with you,
When you whispered to me your goodbyes.
VanityA crimson dress so tight,Vanity in Free Verse More Like This
Eyes surrounded by black.
High heels to show off the legs,
And perfume to intoxicate.
The mirror shows beauty,
But the other side shows vanity.
Her sweet outside drips silky lies,
Covering her vain.
She’ll extract your happiness,
But you’ll love her still,
Even if she can’t love you back,
For her heart is already taken,
By her own self.

Struggle until you win,
Struggle until you lose.
But don’t sit and wait,
Don’t lie down and complain.
Change until you can no longer complain.

And dress up as someone new.
Let’s have a scare tonight,
For in the morning,
I’ll no longer be with you.

It’s the people that change.
The same conversations run out their mouths,
But the mouths are different and the language strange.
Gossip about an outsider fills up their mind and drains through their mouth,
But their minds are as simple and destructive as the next.
The jokes become jaded,
The personalities the same.
Friendship has become boring,
When everyone seems the same,
Yet I keep searching,
For a friend with a mind I’ve never seen.

Swallowed them whole,
Into a bottomless hole.
Their figures so dark,
You couldn’t even see a mark.

You must be lying when you say it was me.

That floods its inhabitants.
A thought I can’t recover,
Swims in this dusty mind.
A scene I can’t forget,
Taunts my waking hours.
An emotion I push away,
Stabs me in moments of weakness.
This mind boycotts my body,
Never allowing a single wish.
Memories intertwine with mirages,
And form something false.
You say it’s easy,
To win against it,
But how are you supposed to fight,
An enemy that lives in the inside?

Smiles I held dear,
Turn into the frowns I despised.
I don’t remember the beginning,

I try to remember a face,

The harder it becomes.
I’m losing myself with every second,
Becoming someone strange and frightful.
I’d rather trash myself now,
So I never forget,
The person who stares back at me in the mirror.
So I never forget,
My friends and family.
So I never forget,
The hardships I went through.
So I never forget,
What makes me,

Drowning in a sea of gossip.
I'm gasping for air,
As the waves of hate drag me down.

But as long as there is a light,
The fight isn't over.
DivorceScreams that echo through the hallways,Divorce in Free Verse More Like This
And accusations that fly into the air.
You never even cared she said,
I’ve found someone better.
The sound of bags packing,
And that man calling you nonstop.
It’s over now honey,
So don’t be upset,
It was never meant to be.
Gossip that leaves its trail in my mind,
And hurtful words that still travel faster than I can handle.
Don’t trust him,
Don’t trust her.
I don’t want you to think you’re in the middle,
You said as you whispered poison about the other.
I don’t want you to think you have to choose,
You said as you pointed to your door.
I don’t want you to cry,
You said as you slammed my feelings.
I don’t want you to leave me you said,
As I complied without a word.

It was a cold winter night in New York with snow that was freshly falling from the sky and slowly starting to cover the pavement. A couple of days ago it had rained, making everything slippery. The weather seemed to be matching your mood lately but you weren’t sure what snow really meant to you. Most girls were happy when they saw snow fall from the sky but not you. You weren’t that happy at all lately.
