Goddess"See that girl standing over there...?" The little girl peered over her brother's head, sitting on his shoulders. She was only five, tired from running along the beach all day. But one girl had caught his eye, one among the rocks that the other people were avoiding as if subconsciously. None even glanced at her as the waves crashed among the rocks, the wind blowing back her hair. The farthest out on the rock cropping, others stayed back and played unaware that those rocks were there."What girl?" Her brother pointed again, standing on one of the higher dunes that towered over the beach below. His sister leaned farther forward, her hair brushing his ears. The girl still stood there, still as the rocks themselves, the waves seeming to become more agitated by her presence."The one in the blue and white dress, with the hat farthest out on the rocks. See her Amiee?" Again he pointed, but Amiee shook her head again. Carefully he lifted his sister off his shoulders and down to the dune, shak
Shut OutYou say friend,You said the end,You call me out,You called me to shout.When was I your friend again?Was it just now or back then?Why did you run right through me?What is it you see?Friend is a funny word I know,Foe is all that you show,Friend is only when it is right,Foe is when we always fight.Holding on to that last thread,Held on to what little you said,Hell if I suffer you know,Hardly a care you show.Friend is someone you can trust,Foe is someone out for lust,Friend is someone til the end,Foe is someone who isn't your friend.I thought it was too good to be true,Fight for everything I do,But when I feel this is the end,I will shut out every friend.Now hold on tight true friend,If you care about the end,Not using me for a ride,Not just a place to hide.
EmpathyThey said I was crazy,Holding the knife in my hand,But I just think they're lazy,Because I wasn't what they planned.I closed my eyes one day,As the friend before jumped,Pain and fear did I say,Their body now slumped.But no one could understand,Why I wouldn't move,I wasn't what they planned,I didn't fit in the perfect groove.I'd sleep for days as if comatose,Riding out the suicidal pain,As friend after friend took the dose,When they had nothing to gain.Death is one I cannot stand,Knowing when each would die,I wasn't what they planned,Knowing that I could lie.Keep a straight face while they raged,Drama and love all around,Yet I felt as if I aged,While they all were frozen ground.Never changing land,While I blew away,I wasn't what they planned,That's what they say.If I dropped my guard,Their rage became mine,My judgment would be scarred,And that's where I draw the line.Twice I've lost to flames they fanned,The memory lost on me,I wasn't what they planned,
