My DadWhen I was little, my dad was a superlative.
He was the strongest, the bravest, the most the best. No man could compete with him. He didn't just set the bar, no, my dad was the bar. He could do no wrong in my big youthful eyes.
When I became a teenager, my dad was nothing but wrong.
His expectations: wrong.
Means of discipline: wrong.
Opinions of my boyfriends: wrong.
And it was hard to understand how a man of such great stature could take such a fall. Especially to such a smart daughter like me, who was above the petty "ugh, my parents suck!" complaints of a typical teen. I, who searched for a higher understanding, could not possibly be at
RepetitionWhat's the point of a heart?
That it beats with all of its might within your ribs, pounding at your lungs until you can't breathe? That it stops every time something bothers the weakly firing neurons up past the rivers of your veins?
What does it pump through your weary limbs but the icy cold blood that's trudging from your broken valves? They weep and sigh and cut themselves off in a tragic mobius twist. And without an end, what purpose does that familiar slamming and throbbing have?
Just to remind you that it's there, one would think.
Or maybe the point of the heart is to bleed what it receives. To keep the fluid flowing. Just to keep t
Godly Relationships 7: Shared ValuesIf you're still searching for Mr. or Mrs. Right, be patient, be prudent, and be picky. Look for someone whose values you respect, who behavior you approve of, and whose faith you admire. Remember that appearances can be deceiving and tempting. And when it comes to the important task of building a lifetime relationship with the guy or girl of your dreams, pray about it!
If you happen to be one of those very lucky ones who has already fallen madly in love with the same wonderful person who has already fallen madly in love with you, say a great thanks to the Matchmaker in heaven. But if you haven't yet found a soul-mate who honors both you and G
You Are Already PerfectI hung up the phone and look down at the ground before looking up into my mirror.
Why do you like me?
Why do you love me?
You could have a million other girls, I’ve seen them look at you, so why me?
What’s so good about me?
I’m so ugly.
Why don’t you go off with someone who’s beautiful?
No, I don’t want you to leave me but I want you to be with someone who is good for you.
The only things that are beautiful on me are these lines.
All these red lines.
I’m so sick.
No I don’t like doing this but…
I guess I have no answer actually.
I walk to the bathroom and quietly close the d
My Best FriendI Can Never Tell You
There are so many things I wish I could say, but alas words can never seem to be enough…I know you’ll never read this, but then again, is that even the point?
I know you probably don’t even understand all you do to begin with, so it won’t really matter, because you’ll remain the same. You are, truly the best friend a person could have, the way you always listen, without any kind of judgment, you’re always there, and if you weren’t, well…I don’t really have much to say about that. You always seem to know if something is wrong, and you’re just there to help me
AffectionI miss affection.
I miss having the off chance of being hugged or even kissed when the moments were right.
I don’t like that it’s been so long since I’ve had that.
I think I deserve to have it, but I don’t get it.
I mean, we’re all human, we’re supposed to be able to thrive on social interaction and occasionally have meaningful relations through touch.
But I never got that out of either of my parents.
My father always asked why I recoiled back when he’d touch me or go near me; it’s because
I wasn’t used to him actually reaching out to me that way.
My mother was worse at it; I can c
Animal Rights Quote 4True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.
~ Milan Kundera
SinkingThe tears sting more
When they refuse to fall
Hot, salty bullets of anguish.
Assaulting my eyes
As I try to forget.
I wake, like a brick wall
It's there in front of me,
Even in dreams,
I cannot escape.
Surrounded by people
I still feel lonely,
Drowning, suffocating in
The tormentor's shroud.
They don't see me,
I'm not even there.
The happiness ended long ago.
I cannot reach the air above.
Sinking, falling, leaving.
Will I ever be visible again?
To even myself?
The cruel mirror lies,
It's image of an empty shell,
Its not me.
I'm not there.
I am broken.
Rant 15: LOLPlease let me use _____. Hasbro told me _______.
If you're gonna lie, at LEAST make it convinicing! Oh my god, that's the best excuse I've heard to date. Good lord, did you really think I was gonna fall for that? Oh my god, people are IDIOTS.

Turn it off.
It's the silence that eats away at your battery ripping into your bronze armor, drinking your oil.
During the day it's so easy to forget the long dark nights because people make so much noise. It's like an information overload. But when the day sinks into everlasting dusk the dead feeling beckons you, sticking to your skin like a crystallized blast freezer.
And then it begins.
But it is never truly silent.
Every file is being analyzed, the gears are turning in your head as the machine belches smoke consuming the wilder land of your inner solace. Everything that has ever made you happy is no
For My Girlfriend, The Love of my LifeDear Tori,
Every time I am near you, my heart beats faster and faster. You always make me happy when I'm down, and I thank you for making my life enjoyable. I love how amazing you are, and how you always bring a smile to my face. Your hugs are warm, your kisses are sweet. I love you with all my heart, and all my soul. Truly, words can not express my love for you. I am glad to have such an angel for a girlfriend, for she is beautiful, smart, funny, and pretty much amazing at everything. If your life was ever in danger, I would save you in a heartbeat. You have done so much for me, and I can't thank you enough. It would take me over a decade just to thank you for all the amazing stuff you've done for me.
My life before I met you was a living Hell. I was going downhill fast and I wanted to die. Then I met you, the most perfect person on the face of the world. After talking to you, I immediately knew that we were going to make the greatest of friends. Later on,
My father is an ambulance. One of those old ambulances, the ones that have seen everything and are still running perfectly. The ambulance has faded paint, and numerous scratches that it has made little attempt to cover. The ambulance does not try to hide what it has done, and the things it has seen, but it does not go and broadcast such knowledge either. It simply drives around, and helps. Its interior is worn, and obviously well used. The tools and bandages are all arranged neatly in their spaces, well secured so as not to fall or get stolen. The seats in the cab are plain leather. Sturdy, long lasting, and strong. Constantly going around lo
Embersthe embers die
darkness murders the shadows

The effects of anti-gay bullyingHey, do you know that kid? Yeah, that boy who was being bullied. He shot himself. It's a shame, too, he was going to go to Yale and become a doctor. Problem was, he was gay.
Hey, do you remember that girl who was beat to death by her best friend? Yeah, she was so nice, she always tried to donate to charity. No one took her money though, because she was gay.
Hey, remember that guy who protected you from that bully? He had a broken leg yet he helped you. He wanted to be a famous athlete. No one thought he could do it, because he was gay.
Hey, remember that soldier? Yeah, he was taking care of thr
What Defines Ugly?People look in the mirror countless times everyday, but how many can look in the mirror and love what they see? Human beings are constantly comparing themselves to pictures in magazines, which host photos of near-perfect looking celebrities and models. We want to be perfect too. They compare themselves with these pictures and what the media demands, and automatically come to the conclusion that since they‘re not what the media has labeled beautiful, they‘re different; they have to be ugly.
But what defines ‘ugly’? Is it your skin versus theirs that have been covered in makeup? Is it your body versus theirs that have b
Frozen SkyIt was a cold night.
An Australian summer on top of a mountain. Not even a mountain, somewhere between that and a hill. Who could have thought that the very air could make you shiver? Your breath leaving steam in front of your face, like smoke from a fire?
But sometimes that's what makes everything more beautiful. The stars were so incredibly clear, and the moonlight was enough to wander around in. I still remember sitting down next to you on that parachute, wrapping myself up in a sleeping bag to look at the stars.
I didn't even see your face, only heard your voice as you spoke to me, properly, for the first time. Your voice was so kind,
I Stumbled Upon a FeelingI stumbled upon a feeling
Sweet, innocent, just a wish
But with time this feeling grew
I want you, but I want you gone
I think I love you
I think I hate you
Go away, come closer
Let me forget you
Let me hate you
Let me be alone
I woke up to pain,
Endless and deafening.
Like flame engulfing my body,
But there was no heat.
Not even warmth.
Not even cold.
No cuts covered me.
No blood bruised me.
I reached to pull the pain away,
And found nothing.
I buried my hands,
Looking for my soul.
But alone is just me...
My hands are in my chest.
I can't feel my heart beat.
I can't feel...

in his left hand, all under a thick netting
of coral reef. He had 27 bones in his right hand too, each perfectly preserved.
Both hands held their breath
as he approached stage exit.
Hit every bar, tour every state.
A river runs interstate through Texas.
Small yellow lines jump straight through it.
Take the US-27 from Fort Wayne to Miami. A second doesn’t make it
to his destination.
