Faded clothes,
Burnt face,
Sticky hair,
Filthy palms,
Bloodshot eyes,
Sweaty arms.

Dried throat,
Painful thighs,
Sore feet,
Divided crowd,
Pitiful players,
Swollen knuckles.

Torn hope,
Crumpled chance,
Sunned court,
Tumbling scores,
Coughing points,
Silver lining.

This is what I felt after a good match under the sun.

I serve
To my team

I catch
with my face

I pass
To the floor

I score
Into the net

And yet
I frown
By smiling

And win
By losing

A defeat
Can be a good victory
Its all about sportsmanship

This is some true stuff that happen to me

The Nets Hold Our Dreams Like Tangled Bugs,
And The Courts Gleam With Our Ambition,
Beads Of Sweat Form Perfectly On Our Raised Brows,
As We Play With The Attitude A Champion Needs,
We Are Dressed In Black And Blue,
Floor Burn Covering Our No Longer Smooth Skin,
Our Lips Bleeding From The Battle For The Ball,
The Sound Of Screaming Becomes White Noise,
As We Burrow Into The Gym Floor,
Just For One More Medal,
And As We Walk Away From The Courts,
With Our Arms Bruised And Torn,
Red And Raw,
We Smile At Our Dreams Still Lying,
In The Twisted Nets

I Love The Rush Of The Game--And Yep.. I'm A Total Jock (Fellow Vballers Know What I'm Talking About)

I feel bad for her because I know she's hurting.
But does she know how much pain she puts on me.
Making me think he doesn't love me.
Maybe I believe it.
That's the pathetic part.
Her pain causing the problems of my future life with Him.
This is not the love of a mother.
Who doesn't approve of her daughter.
Who she is now.
The person that she loves to be.
This is emotional abuse.

Hopeless
Dauntless
Useless

God get us out of this labyrinth.
Set the generations of past free for the future.

For only the hole in my chest is never going to fully recover with this madness.
This is not good madness.
The repetition of the flash on the screen makes my heart panic.
Alas it should be comfort that the soul encounters.

Play volleyball with a group of **6**
βέƦẙḽ Dṏṽ the Smartass Rabbi

Pray with a quorum of 10
Debate with  assembly of 9
Scottish dance with a collective of 8
Party with a gathering of 7
Play volleyball with a group of 6
Rank on a scale to 5
Practice music with a band of 4
Perceive in a dimension of 3
Make love with the intimacy of 2
Write poetry for an audience of 1

volleyball.
Meabh Ann McCrossan

my shoulders hurt
from hating myself
and he still
wants me
to play
volleyball.

or played volleyball on the same team

the greatest people in your life
come unexpectedly
maybe it is the time
when you bumped them in the hallway
or played volleyball on the same team
it happens
and we just do not know
maybe they were your bus mates
or someone you thought was a weirdo
i thought everyone was the same
until i met each

b.a

I love *volleyball*,

My name is Zaynah,
I my best friend is Dayna.

I love volleyball,
and love to go to a fancy ball.

I love school,
cause I am way too cool.

I love One Direction, Justin Bieber, Cher Lloyd, 5 Seconds of Summer, & Austin Mahone from Texas,
& I want to drive a
Lexus.

That is all about me,
oh and I love to watch T.V.

While playing **volleyball**

V-is for vowing to never drink vodka
While on our voluntaryvacation.
We have voiced our verification
In a high voltagevolcano
While playing volleyball
And checking our voicemail.
While in this void,
A terrifyingly vividvixen
Who was a model for vogue
In which she wore a V-neck dress,
And ate all her vitamins
Vocabulized with much volume,
Her vow
To always,
Drink vodka.
