The world can change
In less than an instant
A life can change
In the blink of an eye

The night was
Supposed to be fun
All it took was
One moment

A doomed collision
Led to the end of an era
Everything I knew
Gone in an instant

Red blood
White hospital
Black clothes
Blue tears

I sit alone
Curled up in my room
Paintings containing anger
Are strewn about the room

One day I'm dragged out
Brought to a celebrity
It soon is revealed
We share the same blood

My world's upside down
Nothing will be the same
As the ward to the
Largest technology mogul

I try my best to
Not abandon my friends
But suddenly I'm a commodity
Everybody wants to talk to me

I meet more of my classmates
Than I ever knew in my life
Each one has their own goals
Who do I trust?

A new girl appears
She's barely human anymore
She was saved from the brink of death
And is taken care of by my guardian

Other people around me
Blur the lines between human
And machine
Is there even a difference?

As I look around
Even more people are different
Just because of how they're born
Their minds don't align

I watch the world ostracize
Just for being who they are
Who are they to judge
What's normal?

The world today changed
So much in half a century
Yet so many ideals
Remain the same

When the world around us changes
Should humanity change in turn?
Only our actions will show
Which answer is correct

Until then I continue
Someone shoved into insanity
Maybe one day
I'll decipher this riddle

On The Death Of A Cat
I pull a cookbook from its shelf, right next to the ceramic bowls, flip through the batter-stained pages.   His orange and white hairs still cling to my sweatshirt, a touch of blood smeared across the collar.   At last, I find the recipe I was searching for. Peanut butter cookies.  My finger traces down the list of ingredients: two and one fourth cups all-purpose flour, one teaspoon baking soda, two eggs. A rustle comes from the next room over, and I pause—glancing up, past the breakfast bar.   My sister is lying on the den couch, her face to the backrest.   A blanket is s

Ghost
Once upon a time, I lost my heart, stolen by a thief who distracted me in the dark with sweet lies and opened buttons. I drifted, insubstantial, until I found my heart again, abandoned beside a country road. I picked it up and put it in my pocket, took it home, washed it gently in warm water and No More Tears shampoo, and put it back where it belonged. It hurt at first, its pounding loud, working furiously to infuse pale limbs with rushing blood, alive, but the pain passed and I smiled in the afternoon sun. Then you came. And my poor heart, pilfered once more, is lost again. But this time, as

My Life In a Nutshell
My Life In a Nutshell I (That's just another word for me.) I tried to reason with myself today. I lost. Reason won. I didn't give you a fair chance to run before you fell in love with me. By the way, why did you fall in love with me? Or did you trip over the last heart you broke and land in my arms? I saw the truth today. It wasn't pretty. Ditto. Yesterday I had a dream. You lost me. I found me. The world use to look so dim. Oh wait, there's the light switch. Damn, the light just burned out! The future looks so bright. No wait, that's just car headlights. I think I died and went to... Ah crap! Not you again. Weren't you

A poem about someone who has nothing to do with any frog hats. Why would this story be based off of a frog hat? That would be stupid
