I idolize her fly-aways Like sylphs, Banding on a vibrant dull. A lion's song, a kingdom come, A crown of soot and soil. I adulterate her cupid's bow A psyche, Bending on a serpent whim. A hierophant, a curtsy laugh, A perfect image of her and Him. I captivate her Isis-build Like pillars, Resting o...

First, you pass away your soul will leave this green earth, and it is peaceful   Then you graduate. School was only some short years now you’re on your own   Before you know it, you are taking your first steps a kid on the move   You will start to age looking back on a great life, a wo...

These moments are those I must transcend Yet the happiness ceases to end With the pallor of my skin Upon yours through thick and thin I needn’t worry about tomorrow Because your love is nothing borrowed Etched into my heart is your name in pen Permanently grazing your words upon...

Suppose that a student drops a pen on the ground while in class. His teacher, a person who obsesses over cleanliness, berates him. She tells him how careless his pen-dropping habits are. The kid is nearly driven to tears, and he leaves class in a foul mood. He spends the rest of the day this way, sparking...

He was once jubilant; He danced with glee. Now all that happiness has gone free, Like the leaves in the autumn flow as they please. With one single bullet it all begun The only strength left became love. The love for his family, His desire to be by their side. He lives with the...

Her eyes tempted me from across the room. I stood, still as stone, and returned her gaze. Her eyes were something tough to describe. They were metallic blue toward the pupil, but grew emerald by the edge.

Shadows dance, choreographed by flames. Smoke flicks up into the night, towards oblivion. The pyre, the gloom, the burnish. Sun and Moon struggle for dominance in the dawning sky. Clouds drift on past, heavy with their tears. Earth rumbles and rolls over to continue her slumber. The...

Convincing my parents to allow me to go on a small day trip in a boat with my friends was difficult enough, but it is never surprising when something seems to go terribly wrong. I always seem to have the worst of luck when it comes to anything that is difficult for me to earn.  Taking a peaceful boat...

You are in a constant state of revival With every moment a dawn of beginnings.   When you answered the call to arms, As you were devoting Laying down your life for a ruthless God. As you joined in sacking Constantinople, And died with a sword through your chest.   When...

We are alone. All alone in the dark, But somehow, that darkness seems like light To the human eye. That is how we began: In the arctic, barren, and sinister nothingness. They call it the human race for a reason. That reason being, We are all trying to get somewhere. Where? No...
