Chernobyl's StoryI remember exactly where I was the day the reactors melted. The town was quiet, just a normal work day for everyone. Women were home cleaning and cooking; children were busy learning in the local school; men were working at the plants. On days like this the cement streets were nearly silent. A few stray animals ran between the buildings trying to find a scrap of food to eat, but most were unsuccessful. In a desolate town like this, nothing was wasted. There was barely enough to go around as it was. The men could work as hard as they wanted in the plants, but their meager pay would never amount to enough to feed a small family of three.
I was traversing the outskirts of the town around sunset, trying to hunt down a small animal to feed myself for the evening when the alarms sounded. The horrific screeches of the alarms came in short pulses of three. Three. The number of alarms you never wanted to hear. I whipped my head in the direction of the town. The once barely breathing streets wer
serves for life, for truth, and for status. Its chief use for life is sustenance for the soul; for truth, is in finding one's true self; and for status, is the feeling of greatest importance. To spend too much time in love is lust; to use it too much for truth is fantasy; to demand status is unjust. Wasteful people squander love, ignorant people abuse it, and reasonable people cherish it. Love not to question and order, nor to beg and plead, nor to feign and desire, but to honor and be equal. Demanding maketh a desperate person, controlling a spoiled person, and loving a true person. So if a person's heart be stolen, let him search the ends of the earth for its thief, if his heart be damaged in the process, let him begin the mending with a new. Amor est spiritus qui nos alet. So every heart may find safe harbor in true love.
Widening the GapWe're so in tune with each other. The rhythm we move to is perfectly in sync. We can feel the beat so deep within our souls that are movements are innate.
There's never any questioning or second guessing.
It takes years to build skill and trust like this. With one fluid motion the bows are drawn across the strings and the ost beautiful melodies are created.
It's days like these that magic is created.
Please tell me where the magic and trust has gone. Evaporated in the air forever. Gone for an unknown amount of time.
The music is still made, but the passion is over. That unspoken bond between stand partners is no longer a safe one...
But the silence is sure strong.
Good-Bye My AngelI guess this is a formal good-bye. We never really had one did we? I can't blame you for that though. You had to leave and I had my own life to deal with. I think about you often though. Never doubt that.
Thinking back on it, you took a while to trust me. I never pushed you. I understood your fear of new people. My heart skipped a beat when you climbed into my lap for the first time and rested your head on my knee. It started from there, didn't it?
God must have known I needed an angel.
So He sent me you.
YOu wagged your tail so feriously every time you saw me that your whole body would shake. If I didn't play fetch with you, you go crabby and shoved one of your slime covered balls into my heart. You would've kept on playing till your heart burst. Wouldn't you? And if I ever dared to stop petting you, I would find you sitting in my lap, demanding for an explanation. I couldn't help but laugh at you. It was after all quite adorable.
I'm sorry I wasn't there when you left. You held on so
One YearJust a note for you, Love...
Words cannot quite express how this past
year has made me feel. The laughs, the smiles,
the hugs, the kisses. They all became part of the
wonder that is you. My world lit up that night I met
you. One year later, that light is shining brighter than ever.
You promised me forever with a feather-light kiss
and calmed all of my fears with a strong embrace.
For the past year you were my shoulder to cry on,
my late night phone call just to chat, my avid movie
watching companion, my "singing to the steering wheel"
band mate, my fellow dedicated sports fan. But most of all...my best friend.
The holes in my heart have been healed and I can
say it has never beat so soundly in my life. You've
worked your way into my heart.
And it's somewhere you will always stay.
Would You?Can you feel the sunlight on the
dark side of the moon?
Or catch the beauty of a rainbow
from the sky?
Would a humming bird still flutter,
Or the rain continue to fall,
If all the flowers in the world ceased
Can you feel the thunder of the
ocean in your soul?
Or catch the magic stardust from
a comet flying by?
Would you take my hand,
Or hold me close at night,
If I promised you forever with
all of the love in my heart?
Laugh and jump around
Clap your hands to the beat
It doesn't matter who you are
Spin and twirl
Forget all of your worries
So I'm in love with this person that treats me just right.
I can't help but smile at the thought.
To think it's been nearly eight months.
I swear it was just yesterday when we met.
My friends think we're amazing,
And believe it can last.
I have no doubt in my mind.
I've fallen 100%.
frostbittenmy fragmented bones are
chipping away and you stutter
that it wasn’t your fault
and i'm wondering if the
crystal frost on your eyelids has plagued
if the warm beating of your pulse has
disintegrated into the moon's
eternal curse of never letting
the little mermaid(s)we were breathing underwater
exhaling and inhaling,
the first time we'd learned how to
this was the underwater ruin
that was balancing our names
on the fringe of its star-studded tongue,
our fingers spread apart
in a million particles of ocean dust--
and her freckles were splattered
across her face like acrylic
this was our beginning.
her hips were bending and flipping
through the breaking waves like she had
and i thought about the pillaging pearls of
water that escaped her mouth when
we piroutted together beneath
the ripples of the ocean's body
(which, was practically aligned with
how much longer would we survive
before we ran out of air?
Just wanted you to knowTo me you are the most amazing thing, like the sun!
You shine so bright and you never dim until you go down.
You are my flower that I will care for.
And yet even though you tell me to go to sleep I can't. Because I love you too much.
When I talk to you I feel as if I've been injected with morphine because I feel so calm.
When I feel as if I've made you angry I feel every bone in my body fracture.
When you tell me you cry I can't help but do the same.
Its coming to Christmas soon.
And your the only Christmas I need.
And you are all I need.
I can't wait to hug you.
I can't wait to kiss you.
But there's more.
You're laugh lifts me up.
Your smile is like being confronted by diamonds.
Your hair is just simply. Fluffy.
Your eyes shine like stars.
And I promise on Christmas Eve I will stay up to talk to you. All night for me but all day for you.
All I want is you to be happy!
Because your happiness means everything to me.
Your the most beautiful thing to me.
Thought I'd just let you kno
Stepseach step we take together
is noted down in the book of universe
each breath you take beside me
is counted and measured
there are only as many kisses to spare
there are only as many touches to share
one day I will abandon you one day you will forget
and our paths will never cross again
I wait patiently for the day
I speak hurtful words just so it comes sooner
but then again why do I even care when the world
is all but a stage to fill for a while
to scream on it and die and fight till the audience
anounces the winner
and you smile and cry and blush and it all complicates
everything contradicts any plan I could have made
so that I am the victor so that nothing but I emerges
from within the ruin
darling you will be the death of me
and I will die craddling you
having the last laugh
that's as hollow as the devil's heart
When We Dancewhen we dance
for both the very first and last time
I feel like crying
raking my hands up and down
your willing body I know we will
be like this after today
for I know happy endings
are not meant for pairs like you and me
each time I see your smile hear your laughter
when I feel your heat slipping in-between our clasped
silhouettes my hand grasping at your hair playfully
I know this is the beginning
and the end
all in one
once and for all
I know it is indeed better for us both to part ways
to keep dreaming instead of acting on the feelings
buried deep underneath all of our daily problems
expectations of this pitiful life
that has to be spent alone
it is better for you to run away from me
as much as
it is acceptable for me not to look you in the eye
when I feel your back and throat
when your voice resonates deep within me
as you say
you love me
and I cannot swallow the bitter lump filling my throat
chemistrynitrogen is essential for all living
and i'm wondering if you're my
if i can just live off of you.

Odd CoupleThe two of us come from different worlds
An East Coast Boy meets a West Coast girl
As a white boy, I never dreamed I would love a Chicana
And that the Chicana would love me!
Both of us are strange
Nerds, geeks, and weirdos
But she makes me happy
She loves me tenderly
So, I say to her cordially
"I love you for you accept me as I am"
Her response is, "I can't wait to be yours always"
Large, hairy, ugly am I
Deserving her I do not
Yet, you loves me all the same
And actually thinks I'm cute
Fancy that as it may
We make an odd couple
"Cherish this always and don't lose it"
That's my plan
denial can be quite romantiche told her, "i like you better with your makeup off,"
as he hooked the hair that fell awkwardly in front of her face
over the red tips of her nearly frostbitten ears
"so there's a moment when you don't like me much at all?"
she said jokingly, her smile lighting up the living room
brighter and warmer than the fireplace that was alight in the corner
he laughed at her joke, and held her closer to his chest
because he knew that these sort of things don't last forever
since even the highest mountains come crashing down eventually
and she's prepared for the fall, she has a checkered history
full of betrayals and lying, whether it is the one done
with the mouth or the one down on soft beds and cramped backseats
so they enjoy the moment, and go through the motions
passionate and intimate, letting their bodies intertwine
and become one, vulnerable for just a brief, fleeting moment
but when the deed is done and they lie on opposite sides of a
cold and enormous bed, will they think about who the
19 BeatsJust listen to my heart and feel the steady beats.
One. Two. Three. Four. Five.
The rhythm will never change.
Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. Ten.
As long as you are here with me.
Eleven. Twelve. Thirteen. Fourteen. Fifteen.
You steadied the pattern and patched up the holes.
Sixteen. Seventeen. Eighteen.
My life began again when we said "Hello"
