why i am the way i am
how it started is this:
i'd rather talk to you than eat.
i'd go hours past lunchtime,
decide in the hot summer sun
that it's too late,
and that's how i lost five pounds.
how it worsened is this:
i was a fat pig.
for as long as i can remember.
and here i was,
losing weight.
just watch the numbers in
and watch the numbers drop.
maybe i don't have to hate how i look.
let's keep trying.
how i stopped breathing is this:
i feel so much and i never want to feel again.
i don't want to love like this.
not now, not ever.
i can't make it stop.
i can't listen to music
because it makes me feel too much.
i can't move left
i can't move right
without feeling like i'm breaking.
i can't look at maps in history class
or i crack. the water is so big.
maybe i can stop eating
and not have the ability to feel.
maybe if i'm thin enough,
it won't bother me.
because i'll be happy, right?
happy and numb.
i'll be beautiful and what else matters if i'm beautiful?
if i'm thin, why do i have to worry about feeling t

Why I Stopped Writing
Here's a little story about me,
about my skill to paint a grim little scene,
to make the mind creak,
to talk of those things which we don't like to speak.


I was a girl of sixteen and I had a dream,
to exist so broken hearted that I would know,
know to the core,
that love was as real as I thought it should have been.


I was dramatic to say the least and wrote poems spanning ages,
wrote of crashed cars and seeing those eyes again later,
FEELING that stare,
knowing that though time had passed, 
he'd not actually gone anywhere.


English class came, 
seemed so lame,
most days in the back with the boys,
getting out of work with the most clever ploys.


Then one day the teacher said,
we could share our writing,
with all the others,

Why I Like Taxidermy-Pelts-Fur
It's Spring time...when everything starts coming to life, having babies, and bloom. It looks absolutely beautiful out, and I'm seeing the world a bit through rose-colored lenses. As I looked in awe at the simplest things today, I was thinking why I like fur so much.
I was watching a dog walking with its owner...I'm a total dog lover, so I shamelessly stared. I watched its muscles work to propel its body forward, its tail swinging in tune with its legs, its tongue out in a happy pant as it walked with its beloved owner. When I got home, I looked at my wolf pelt, Kalik. His eyes weren't his own and they certainly didn't look at me with love and loyalty, his tongue didn't loll out happily dripping with saliva, his tail didn't sway and his legs didn't bring him to me. But I still saw the same beauty as I did the dog. The life may have been lost to this wonderful creature, but its beauty still shows. Looking at Kalik, I can still imagine him laying there not as a pelt, but as a wolf. He was

Pen to Paper
Ink flows through your metallic veins as it does through mine. From your silver mouth it spreads as you kiss your bride in white. She smiles from under her lined veil, a sweet gaze, as you bend to kiss her again, and again. You stain her stark white with dripping black as you both fold into the embrace of each other.
I see the shy smile that escapes your own inky black lips before ther touch against hers, and I smile myself. I pronounce your darkness bonded in marriage to that beautifully plain white, and I exhale in pleasure.
This is why I write.

Acoustic--Ch3--Why I Care
NOTE: THIS IS LONG AS HELL!!! (sorry)
It was harder than I thought it would be to wake up the next morning. Sometime during the night, I had acquired a splitting headache and overwhelming nausea. They were unwelcome companions to my already troubled brain.
I didn't remember all of the night before, but I remembered enough to make my face flush with embarrassment, even as it was buried in my pillow.
Did I really talk to him last night? Did he really drive me home? Was it possible that he understood my confession? Was it possible that he… accepted it? I kept telling myself it was just a dream, but the memories were way too real. The feelings were way too real. I shut my eyes tightly against a sudden throbbing pain in my temples. These giddy, over-excited thoughts were making my head hurt even more.
True to my expectations, Mom had yelled at me last night when I came through the door. She had been waiting up for me, 'cause she knew where I had been. My friends—Kate, Jana, Seth, Dave— my r

The Reason
You once asked
Why I liked you,
And I gave you
A poor excuse
For an answer.
I gave a list,
One describing traits:
Your smile,
Your laugh,
Your personality.
These may sound
All well and nice
But they've hardly
Conveyed what I feel
And think of you.
I could continue
Making the list
For ages to come
But it would never
Be finished.
Every day I learn
Something new
About you,
Something I didn't
Know before.
These new thoughts
I would have to add
To my list.
By doing so, this list
Would never be finished.
Instead, I'll abandon
This worthless list
For a simple answer.
I like you because
You are you.

Why I Am Happy
The boy sitting on the park bench had eyes like sandpaper melancholy.
I think I noticed because I am a poet. I don't think anyone else but a poet could look at his eyes and think, "sandpaper melancholy." But they were that color. A fair brown. And grainy. I liked them in the way I like bitter baking chocolate -- because it has an interesting flavor, not because it is sweet. Unadulterated chocolate is almost unpalatable.
We like sugary chocolate because it has been changed. Adulterated. Oh.
Could tears clean out the roughness in his eyes?
That is why I am happy. I cry the Sorrow out, since poets are not afraid to do that sort of thing. The hunger of starving artists makes us sensitive.
He seemed like one of the people that can be Happy while Sorrow constantly nags on their heartstrings. Like, "Ha, ha, that film was funny!" but after the film is over there is nothing to distract you so tugtug! you remember being sad. They're always sad, but they can't always remember. He seemed ok

Beauty
There is beauty in sadness;
In pain, in despair;
There is beauty in the tears that we cry.
There is beauty in madness;
In chaos, in confusion;
There is beauty in the voice in our minds.
There is beauty in stillness;
In quiet, in silence;
There is beauty in the words we need not say.
There is beauty in blindness;
In the dark, in void;
There is beauty in the things we'll never know.
There is beauty in lightness;
In laughter, in joy;
There is beauty in each and every smile.
There is beauty in sparseness;
In the empty, in the gaps;
There is beauty when nothing else is there.

Why I Do What I Do
Music.
Forming bodies in the air,
Swirling lines of swirling thoughts,
Melding into one.
One fiddler.
One bow.
One violin.
And who am I to judge you?
As I sit here, allowing myself to become inspired by your art,
Being a writer I am no one.
Being a musician you are both
Everyone and everything.
Your lips echo of talent
Mine cry mournfully in despair.
It is nothing but nothing.
The point at which things never happen.
One day I will be the point,
For things never happen at the tip of a pen.
I think.
Silhouettes mirrored in a copper licked dance,
Whilst I watch in awe.
But when you read what I've written,
When you feed your bright green eyes on my clumsy words,
I understand for a brief moment,
Why I do what I do.

Having No Answer
01/16/09
As you are crying into my chest now,
Asking why I am not giving you an answer...
My heart battled my mind over which truth I may give you.
We've been here before,
The moment where I could answer a million questions,
The point where I don't know if you really want the answer,
Or simply a mean of comfort...
So sometimes I do wonder how you would feel,
If you were to know that I could be the answer.

Why I Live
It seems as though, to society, to live is to breathe, eat, sleep, drink...using the ingredients that is needed to continue life without really thinking that, just because you’re alive doesn’t mean you’re living, and I feel as though people often forget that. The act of being alive isn’t enough. And in the end, why do you live? What was the purpose of your life? How did you contribute to society? Help those around you? Dare to ask questions and demand for answers? Bob Marley had once said: “Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?” For me, to be alive isn’t enough. Life isn’t about wallowing in pain, living in the past or being glued to materialism.  Living is about reaching out to touch the life around you, wanting to ask questions and know answers. No...to DEMAND for answers. And this is why I live.
Growing up, I was not left to discover what made me happy, but rather, was told what would make me happy

Why I dont like SebbyxCiel yet I like CielxLizzy
WARNING! THIS HAS SPOILERS!
Also please respect that this is my opinion!! Please respect!
I have to say as a Yaoi fan I don't like Sebastian x Ciel……at all.
I don't like the whole Butler x Master thing. I hate when everyone goes "Oh there are so many hints that they like each other".
Not really....
Those are what we call in modern time "Fan service"
You guys have remember, Sebastian is a Demon, How they act to anyone is usually either very violent or can be sexual at times (which can also be an Incubus). Sebastian can't harm Ciel because in the contract he has to obey and not harm him until the contract is completed. So how he acts towards ciel is a natural way on how a demon goes really.( Sebastian can be indifferent and deliberately delays Ciel's wellbeing, as he frequently teases him and has put his life in mild danger for his own amusement. Once, he responded to Ciel's kidnapping as "terrible" but only because the tea he prepared would go to waste. He also calls Ciel a "b

writing?
     Why do I write?  It'd be much easier to answer that question as a five-paragraph persuasive essay, to be graded on spelling and organization and description by my English teacher or a standardized-testing official.  But, well, it wouldn't be the truth, the essence of why I'm here on a Saturday night, stretched out on my stomach with tea candles burning and a radio blaring, my sole companion my pen and paper.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that there are many different answers to that question, depending on who is asking.  Pick whatever reason you choose, whichever makes you happy.  That is the basis of why I'm still here: to make you, the general population, happy.
     "Why do you write, Meg?" in the words of a teacher would be answered thus: I write because I like sharing the irreplaceable gift of words with others, particularly with my apparent skill for it.  And be

Why I Write
Many people wonder why I write
I don't do it for pleasure
For credit
For popularity
Or for fame
I write for expression
For freedom
For the stories that must be told
The voices in my head
All begging me to tell their story
I write for those who can't
Don't know how
And will never be able to
I write as a form of art
I write to be heard
And I write to tell the stories of those who can't tell their own

Dropping grades in school

Thinking getting on my case will make a difference

You don't see that's why I'm hardened

Where you don't have to be afraid anymore

I know that so many are in worse places
No, I don't want to whine to you

Sick of pretending I'm on top of life
While I'm falling faster and faster

Over a place with grey skies and black roses
And people that understand why
Where you don't have to hide your scars
Where you don't have to be afraid anymore

Why I Hate Containers

when i spend extra time baking a pie 
that doesn't turn out right,
i lock it away in a container in the fridge. 
but i hate containers, 
smooth glass prison cells 
holding cold seeds longing 
to be flung by the wind. 
old sliced fruit drown in their own juice,
sentenced to a chilled, sealed orb -
a spiced soup to flow like the river 
cannot decide its own form. 

when i scrubbed the pickled-fish dish this evening,
i thought of you. the water smelled like sin, like vomit
that would crawl down my throat
every Sunday morning. 
i'd pretend to look around. all singing, all smiling 
except you (but i liked you for your blasphemy). 
now i stare at my useless hands 
that can't punch down walls 
which keep us in the same room.
the house of God holds us all together 
covered tight with hallowed cling-wrap,
thin and smothering.

Flying Dreams
“I don’t know why I love you.
I just…can’t stop thinking of you.”
said old Mr. squirrel slowly caressing
the nut in his bed beside him.
He pulled the glasses from face and set them down
on the nightstand beside him
letting out a sigh. A picture of himself
and another sitting beside him.
He rolled back over and kissed the nut
falling into a deep sleep.
Mr. Squirrel dreamed of flying,
just as his cousins could.
Flying from tree to tree.
Like an overextended wonderful leap.
Safe from danger. Safe from the predators below.
A dog snapping and growling. He paid it no notice.
He was free and happy sailing through the trees.
Through the clouds. He could reach out
with his paws and touch them.
SO soft and fluffy
just like her…
He awoke from his dream startled.
It took him a second to catch his breath,
and he played with his graying beard hairs.
He had been much younger in the dream. So much younger.

why i always write when
because you are static
and magic and gems
pooling in my palms.
because you are finite
and fragile, pale
and recumbent.
because you are numb
and unforgetful,
aching and regretful.
because you are cocaine
crystals and ecstasy,
joy and loud color.
because you are graffiti art
spun from aerosol cans
along the expanses of freeways,
because you are sad-boy-blue
and tin-fingered.
because i love you.

I Cut Because ........I Care
Why do I cut?
Because there is no such thing as simply vanishing
Because I feel the need to be in control over something
You might say it doesn't solve anything
But I disagree
I cut
Because I can
Because I want
Because what I want seems too far away
Because I am impatient
Because I hope
Because although it hurts,
It feels so much better
You might say that I’m important
But I disagree
I cut
Because I feel,
hopeless,
sad,
angry,
upset,
useless,
I cut because
