your smell always seemed to linger in the seams of my favorite pair of jeans..
no matter how many times i try to wash them, i can never seem to erase backtrack or wash away that smell.
i continue to try in hopes that the memory of the day you broke open the only thing that i thought belonged to me will fade with the bruises on my inner thigh.
at 7;15 on a wendsday night you turned virgin mary into a victim beat her face black and blue until you discharged white.
i try to substitute rape for forced entry because i never thought rape would land in my vocabulary.

The light within illuminates’ curious hearts, each seeking comfort in the lit pathways that exist between them.
Symbolic of their connection as she tempers the wilderness he shows her, deep within the depth of his sacredness.
His love is the cup from which she drinks, and her existence is the vessel which guides him, and like a lighthouse, she flashes repeatedly as he tempers the storms within his heart as his mind is clouded.
Seeking the divine mystery within the eyes of his being, yet unable to see past the potency of one’s dreams, where he presents...

I'm shut off, closed and choked
But there is some sunlight out there most days
And the grass can still be so very green
That sun kissed golden green, a little strip of amber for every shoot.
I talk alot of streetlamps, dark nights, roads and rain
That amber current which runs betwixt the tarmac during those colder nights, well I think it's much the same.
I suppose really I like amber more than I thought
It's steady at least isn't it, go with some caution, brace yourself
There's a journey to come yet.
Something to look to for a glimmer of hope.

At times I still have tears
I can't believe it's been two years
Since you left me here
In my memory where you remain
Your legacy will not die in vein
I miss your smiling face
In my heart forever, never erase
I can still hear you call my name
And watching UK doesn't feel the same
I will always remember our last conversation
And all those sodas at the gas station
You were the first person I drove with
To my parents you told me to plead the fifth
All the times you said it would be okay
I always thought we'd have another day

Written by WoundedHeart
Exactly seven days ago marked a year since I'd sadly ended a difficult long term relationship. There were many painful poems I'd written during, but never got posted at the time. So this year, I decided to change that.  Throughout the week, a good portion of the cries and frustrations of my heart were freed. I wanted to get them out of my system, to let it go into the voids of cyberspace so that I could let go of the emotion. I watched it fly away and crash into screens, landing on the hearts of others to be captured by some. And I'd like to thank everyone who read and essentially partook in...

Dear Aaron,
You’re different. You’re the best kind of different. You are healthy, strong, and handsome. You are passionate, charming and intelligent. I don’t think you understand how beautiful these qualities are when they’re all combined into one, wonderful, Aaron Gibson. There are people that would tell me I’m being naïve, stubborn, or even a little bit stupid, but I believe in you. And I try to believe in us.
When I was a little girl, I always dreamt of this ideal, perfect, guy. We lived in our own little Utopia, where we spent every waking moment together. But now, in reality, I...

- Weariness and Comfort -
   They say that there is oft this weariness that cometh to one as though from their very bones… a weariness that makes one feel not alive, but not dead. Such is my sentiment towards the evils of the world as it is in the modern age of this century and the one that came before it. The one singular salve to do ease unto my earnest weariness is my faith. We are, all of us, as nothing without the Divine… and I, more than most, for I am a Child of the Divine in spirit, in heart, and in mind if not also in body. I try to be a Child of the Divine, in deeds...

sometime after bars close.
Maybe, I'll hear from you,

- Contemplating Illumination -
   In contemplating Illumination, I wonder of some things. I wonder, how long, oh my Goddess, oh perfect female aspect of the Divine Force of the Universe… I wonder unto thee how long must my people suffer at the hands of their fellow man? How long, oh my God, must the wars and the strife that man doth unto itself be thus suffered to continue, at the cost of the very life of the land itself, which night unto bleeds from so many horrors perpetrated upon its’ once-pristine sanctity! I cannot look into the abyss of pain that this world oft plummets...

Acts 20:18-24 says,
18 And when they were come to him, he said unto them,
Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after
what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
19 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with
many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the
lying in wait of the Jews:
20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto
you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly,
and from house to house,
21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks,
repentance toward...

Am I crazy
Am I nuts
Am I paranoid
Over thinking

Do you see
What I see
Hear
Taste

Is your truth
My truth
Does your heart
Beat as mine

Can harmony be
Can souls meet
Can love last
Forever as one

The words just won't come to me. . .
There's a story somewhere inside of my mind, but it's just not coming to me. The characters are there and so are their lives but I keep thinking too hard about it and looking too far into it. And before I know it, I have a playlist of songs narrating the character's entire life but I have no words written down, nothing written in that same character's voice.
And I don't know what's wrong with me at this point in my writing career. The stories are there and the narration is easy but the starting point is boring, the exciting part is more...

- Haunting and the Occult -
A Treatise on Certain Forms of Paranormal and Supernatural Activity
1.    There are many and varied theories and opinions on what exactly causes haunting and ghostly phenomena to occur. Some say, that there are tragedies that can be so terrible, so horrific, that the sheer energy of them is so imprinted forever upon the surroundings of a place such as where the tragedy occurred. When one is within such morbid surroundings, even long after the tragedy hath occurred: there are times when it seems the environment itself is filled with tempestuous emotion....

I can't stand you.
All of your sunken in faces.
Your hollowed bones.
Your soulless shells of the people you once were.
Dark eyes.
Cracked smiles.
Blood spilling out from your rib cages.
Bugs crawling out from under your skin.
Shut up.
Don't bother me.
A girl of the living forced to work with those among the dead.
There wounds fester.
They spread.
The disease threatens to overtake me.
Coughing up blood.
"Shit shit shit."
Tears stream down my face.
Stumbling towards the mirror horror takes over.
The girl of the...

- The Lesson of the Flower and the Stone -
A Treatise on the Nature of Compassion
   One who shows compassion, and is moved by the sweetness of love, is like unto a most beautiful flower. The depth of love within a compassionate soul is like unto a blood red rose, for the deeper the love, the deeper the flower’s color and the brighter its’ beauty thereby. When compassion is coupled with passion, as when we fall in love, then the red rose is deepened so that it becomes a rare black rose of such beauty that it couldst be said to be akin to the very skies of the night itself,...

Yesterday morning my throat hurt.  I didn't really think too much of it.  I went and got a bottle of NyQuil, took a few slugs and settled into bed.  It feels like I don't even know where I've been.  Man I got sick. I still am.  It wound up that I couldn't swallow and I had to go to the ER this morning.  My temp was 104 when I got there. Can you believe that? 104 at my age.  I have tonsillitis. I feel like shit.  I'm just now eating some canned chicken soup.  I love that stuff when I’m sick.  But this whole time that I was in bed, sweating and chilling with my mind swarming; I just...

Just a normal day
Or so she thought
She was in her room not making a sound
Waiting for her mom to come home
The girl burned herself with boiling water
Her mom was going to help her
She hears her little sister comes through the door
“is mom home?” she yells downstairs
“no!” they yell back upstairs
The girl runs downstairs
doesn’t know what’s going on
Confused why her mom’s not home
She asks her dad where is she
He makes a smart remark
“probably still across the street”
The girl runs outside
Her mom’s car not there
Her...

Sometimes you think too much and it can get bad. If you think of something depressing, you spend the entire time focused on that one thing and you feel terrible, but usually you're just left feeling...good. Like you're worth something, because you're making people laugh...making people happy. I can never seem to do that. I try, and I fail. I make promises I can't keep because the other doesn't let me keep them. I don't like breaking promises. I try so very hard not to...I try so very hard to make the beautiful girl I'm talking to happy. I see you as my queen and you do not have to rule land...
