The bee buzzed
A provoker for all wrong
And right reasons.
The yoke of my youth has broken.
Where has the pain gone?

a Devil's red was staring back at me.
I shrugged it off at first,
then the pain started,
the feeling of hands wrenching my insides.
I was weak with nausea.
I felt shriveled up,
with nothing but my own skin and bones.
That's when I discovered the diagnosis:
I have Crohn's Disease
The LatchI'm chained to the faults in my life.The Latch by XEOCX13
The sins of my own doing.
The weight of uncertainty
and the discouraging inevitable.
That's when I realize,
the key was in my pocket
A PhantomThe lonely winding road led to nowhere.A Phantom by XEOCX13
A place nearer my dreams,
A place far from reality.
Indecisive options weighing my opinion.
Is there a chance to turn back
Or is that chance a ghost in my past?
Under Black Water (Three)It had been about an hour since Elena called and said she was on her way. Olivia was sitting on the bed, waiting anxiously. She had not slept last night, being too nervous and excited. Her aunt had not said anything to her yesterday when Olivia told her the news, she had only nodded. Olivia had never seen her aunt show any other emotion besides anger and amused herself thinking she probably did not know how to change her ugly expression at all.Julma-Satu
Olivia's cellphone rang and she answered it immediately. "H-Hello?"
"Hey!" said Elena. "I think I'm almost there, I'm going to be looking for the house soon-"
"I'll be outside," Olivia said quickly. She hung up, grabbed her bags, and left the room.
"I'm leaving now," she said as she passed by her aunt, uncle and cousin that were seated around the dining table. "Goodbye, and good luck, Olivia," said her aunt without looking at her. Her cousin and uncle remained silent. Olivia went out the front door to the outside, closing the door behind her, ha

Across the windows

It did appear

And quickly had

What Am I Working For?What Am I Working For?Zelda85044
I am told that someday
my future will be great-
and that all of this hard work
will soon be worth it.
Tell me why, my comforter,
must I wait so long
for what I am waiting for
to finally make itself known to me?
I struggle and I push;
I fight and I claw.
When will the rewards come
for me to claim?
Am I really hoping for something,
or just digging for nothing?
Is this working and dreaming
all for naught?
Each day seems just as far from
that "one day" as ever.
Oh God, make the time pass
so that I can be at that place
which I greatly seek!
I don't expect the world
when I get to that light at
the end of the tunnel-
but I do desire the quill,
and gown too!
Let the day be soon
when I can rest my tired eyes.
Let the dawn be near
when my mind might have its ease.
Tell me true, granted that it isn't so,
if I cannot ever stretch
my tired legs.
Let me know if there will be no
change for me.
I'd rather be told the
bitterest truth heard,
then be told
the sweetest lie fo
Who Is Your MotherThere is no tired like new-mother,fernknits
brand-new mother exhausted.
Sleep a while; please sleep a while.
I tuck your arms into soft fleece, mark the 'O'
of your tiny mouth as I do it, crook you
in one elbow. We are surely alone, and slip
into dreams, you and this woman
who is your mother, drowning together
in pillows, bed-sheets, down.
There is no fear like new-mother,
groggy, incision-pain, narcotic-haze,
frantic new-mother terror. Sleep
a while; please sleep a while.
My heart lurches -- stops -- breaks.
I jolt across the bed, scanning
your tiny face for breathing signs,
a twitch, a sigh. We are still alone
and when you move, I crook you back
into my elbow. Sleep a while.
