Angie S
she reaches out before her,
gazing longingly into the sky,
and draws her arms back to her side.
her chest rises and falls.
her feet begin to push against
the ice and she glides like
a dove riding atop a gentle breeze.
she crosses her steps with elegance and
swiftly flies to the end of her terrain.
as she turns to return,
her knees dip and spring,
propelling her into the air.
her legs cross at her ankles
and she becomes a twisting airplane.
her feet find a landing on her thin blade.
she leans into the center of the rink,
clutching her leg,
and spins with a slow, melodic grace.
as she lowers into a crouch, her tempo rises,
and she becomes a brilliant storm on ice.
again she rises and she strikes a stellar pose, head high--
she tells her audience
the queen has arrived,
and she wears ice skates.
originally written 11/12/16. i emphasized description of the skater in this poem and tried to use metaphors relating to things in the sky. no real deep meaning to this other than just to imagine... speaking of skating, who's watching yuri on ice??
You're my doctor
Who keeps my wounds
Stitched tight,
And the reason
Why I don't
Pry them open
Again and again.
I stay up to 3 AM almost every night,
Sometimes later but rarely before,
Because I don't want to remind myself
About those drill instructors
Who screamed how much of a **** up I am.
My eyes burn.
I
Know
Some
One
Who
Knows
How
To
****
A
Person
By
Using
Only
Thre­e
Words.

You Know
Who I mean,
We all do.

Perhaps
Its
The
Worst
Way
To
Die,
Stabbed
In
The
Back

Devin Townsend Project wrote a song somewhat about a cheeseburger. Yep, they're a metal band too.

"Waveforms of waveforms, vibration waveform, way of the waveforms of vibration.

'Here it comes…SHOW ME!'

'Woah! good lord, it's a cheeseburger!!!'

'…a double!'

ALL BEEF PATTIES, PICKLES ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED BUN!
ALL BEEF PATTIES, PICKLES ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED BUN!
(Oh glorious cheeseburger…we bow to thee. The secrets of the universe are between the buns...)
ALL BEEF PATTIES, PICKLES ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED BUN,

CHEESEBURGER!!!

'But I don't eat the cheeseburgers guys, I'm a vegi-ma-tarian!'"
I am first and foremost a gamer,
Happy to be a dreamer,
And proud that I am a poet.
Those are labels I love.

But I also have labels I hate.
Labels kinda ****.
Loving you is like
Floating into the deep end
Without knowing how to swim,
But I'm going to learn.
Not that I have to,
But because I want to.
Inspired by Bae but not about her. In fact, the person this poem is about is completely fictional and I don't know if I'll ever think of her again, but thats okay.

It's strange to feel
so empty
My mind draws a blank
when I need a thread of clarity
Denying the relief that
comes with hearing my own thoughts
Nobody wants to hear
And I don’t want to talk about
How every day, the past
Keeps flooding my head.
What's life without memories,
Right?


Nobody wants to know
And I don’t want them to know
Why I keep recalling my time
In San Diego, California
Every night before I sleep.
The brutal lies the spilt in my mind,
Degrading statements locked inside.


Nobody knows, and that's okay,
How I lied my way in and out,
Wasted everybody’s time and money,
And left with the self-esteem
Of a methamphetamine addict.


But nobody wants to hear it,
And I don’t want them to know,
Because as a male,
The moment I start complaining
I suddenly become an emotional *****
To almost everyone I know and love.
Its been three months, and I've been doing okay, honestly. I mean, despite having trouble sleeping at night and getting a job and being unable to pay my phone bill and spotify and WoW and PSN subscriptions, I'm doing good for somebody who has a simple understanding of the outside world. Yeah, my life is a total train wreck.

i know i said i'm agnostic.
i've said that for the past 6 years...
but i feel that i've lost it
and today i need a listening ear.
i don't know where i'm going,
and where i've gone doesn't matter.
i rise but then i fall knowing
i'll just end up shattered.
i worry that what i have isn't sufficient.
while others keep a steady pace forward,
i freeze, lose sight of my ambitions,
and i'm locked in a dark corner.
i study, i practice, i study, i practice,
i forget how to relax,
i wish i could fade to blackness,

but i remember to stand tall.
if i stand with good posture,
chin high, i might not fall.
in this world i have to conjure
some hope from somewhere.

i know i said i'm agnostic,
but this is a letter to You.
i am trying to find a place in this world
that i can call mine.
please, grant me the strength to
discover it.
i have no clue what i want to do with my life so im trying to do some of everything i like but other people are going further in their specific areas of interest... and it makes me feel like i'm doing something wrong.
i walked past my mom as she was doing puja this morning and did a quick silent prayer to God about it.

Under the burning sun, we run,
our brave hearts beating as one.
Beneath the shining moon we rest,
and in the morning we're at our best.
Together in battle we fight to win;
we'll beat the odds no matter how thin.
You're my partner through and through--
so let's use our ultimate Z-Move!
Who else is playing Pokemon Sun and Moon?!?! Don't spoil anything for me though haha I'm not even close to beating Sun yet... but do tell me what starter you chose!!!!! I'm team rowlet myself :^)
