I Will Cry
I bought you flowers today,
and the look in your eyes told me that I love you.
I made you laugh today,
and the sound of your voice told me that I care.
I had to kiss you today,
and the smile on your face told me that I will kiss you a thousand more.
I went away today,
and there was no you to me
I didn't care today,
and the tracks of your tears showed just how hard I cried
I need you today,
and the day after told me just how much that is true
I love you,
I care,
I will kiss you today,
I will make you laugh,
I will make you smile,
I will kiss you a thousand more times,
and I will cry.

All life begins with a bang. For some it's a bigger bang than others. For others it's a smaller bang than some. But that one notion holds true. There's always a bang...
BANG!!!
Bang!!
bang!
Three shots faded away into the darkness. So much for a quiet evening in the park! Dutch hurried toward the sound of the explosions. Rounding a corner blocked by wrought iron fencing and dense shrubs his feet slid over the grimy cement pathway and he nearly fell. The lights ahead were out, the way shrouded in darkness. Dutch slowed and withdrew his sidearm. He moved ahead slowly, crouching, silently as possible. He heard a noise, like clawing and then whatever it was scampered away. Some night animal, not alarmed by the shots, so common place as to not even be a cause for alarm, startled by his so-called silent approach. In the darkness he heard other soungs. Water dripping frm the leaves over head. The gurgle of the brook at the parks center, close to overflowing afte the heavy rainfall. Night anim

More Randomness....
Vampires that are forsaken are know as Raven, (or crow, not sure yet). They are solitary, have no court, and are outcasts. One such turned Mercy. One such killed justice. One such was Arleigh. (Arleigh, the raven. Because he took himself from a forsaken, and made a pact, or a court, or whatever this is called.).They become kind of like monsters, mindless killers, but smart also, like a master, but not as careful. (Search bird names, this would be interesting, to find a bird name that could be used for the vamprye.)
Perhaps, as a historical reference. The reason for this is the very first one. His name was Ravenous

       Mercy turned and stormed from the auditorium, the sound of her footfalls echoing back to the empty room. This was just what I needed. A fight turned to attitude. Now I knew why I didn't get involved with women, women friends in general. It complicated things. When your just friends talking is second nature, you brag and razz, if it's a female friend you might even get a little open with your feelings, get a little sexual tension in there and things become awkward.
       "What's her problem?" I asked.
       "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." Robert looked up from his work, a rather complex jumbling of circuits, and smiled. Some day I'd ask him what the hell all of that stuff was for. We sure in the hell weren't espionagists, as far as I k

       "Are you hungry?" Shuylin interrupted those thoughts before they could even begin and Lawrence had to shake his head for a minute, rub at his eyes in gratitude, before he could finally look at her. He shook his head in absence, and she asked again, "Are you hungry?"
       Lawrence rolled that through his mind, suddenly so distracted by the simple question his uneasiness of a moment before was forgotten.
       "I don't know—" He started to answer and found himself swallowing the lump in his throat. "I— I think I'm hungry? But right now just thinking about it's twisting my insides. Does that make any sense?"
       "But you are hungry?" She persisted.
       "I feel like I haven't eaten in. . . days." They both heard his stomach grumble.

Robert enunciated 'Don't' perfectly, drawing a fresh glare from his stockpile of frustrated and angry looks to throw at Rhari from his seat across their table. He'd been at this whole 'human' thing a lot longer than she had, and he still didn't always get the sounds right. It had something to do with the voice box; some aspect of the translation. The longer you were away, the harder it seemed to get it all back.

       Carlos writhed over the grimy wooden floor, his body shuddering from the bullet that had taken him in a shoulder. His struggle was soundless, silent but for the scrape of his boot heels over the dirty wooden planks of flooring. The pain was hot and fresh, burning and intense, and still he did not cry out.
       He felt the shock from his wounds setting in, the icy coldness as it tried to edge his limbs; like burning flames, but possessing no heat—instead this was a complete absence of heat, absolute zero; bringing with it an emptiness devoid of cognitive thought, devoid of reason and logic; followed only too closely by numbness, and then the harsh finality of death—but he refused to succumb to his bodies desperate pleas for surrender. Surrender to the coldness. . . After a moment Carlos refused even to move past that uncontrollable shake that

but my seasons change

or kill their war

as it feeds
As genesis bleeds
and the world flows down
and follows 'round
just one love short
of passion and
one day away
from

NaNo Prophecy
When times are darkest
All hope already lost
There shall come heroes
That fight at any cost
To right the wrongs
And fight for truth
They shall be brave
Cunning, and aloof
But their mission
Shall be cut short
Until the time comes
When one of the court
One of the moon
One of the trees
One of the sword
And one of the cheese
Shall come forth
And save the world
From the abominable rule
Of a six year old girl

How You Tought Me
You ripped out my heart when you left me behind in this cold and broken home.
You tore down my spirit when you released it into this untame world.
I'm still trying to understand why it hurts so much to cry,
but feels so much better when I don't question 'why'.
I still feel the cold of the wind coursing through my skin,
but now my arms have forgotten the warmth you put in them.
My eyes are still adjusting to this pain and suffering,
while my sight is still trained on the only thing un-tainted and un-maimed.
You love was so true that I thought,
It would only ever be me and you.
I had fallen for you fast,
looking for a love I thought would last.
Though what I found was strange and kind,
I refused to listen to my mind.
I guess you were right all along,
nothing is new when you're together so long.
You ripped out my heart when you left me alone,
And I still sit on my bed staring at the phone.
I can still see your smile in my dreams,
And I still can't figure out what it means.

The Birch Tree Weeps
The Birch Tree Weeps
Tears of gold
Falling…falling…falling
Gentle as the fluttering of butterflies
Who leave us for a southern sun.
The grass is gilded in silver at her roots
The first frost has come.
Summer is gone
Though his kiss lingers on
In many a Tree memory
But the birch tree,
She weeps tears of gold.

Need to keep at it, I keep slipping and not writing. I'm still managing probably 4 nights a week, but I keep forgetting or not putting aside the time over the weekend. Then nights like tonight spend too long in front of the tv. Heading to bed now.
Ended up watching Supernatural and didn't write tonight, so thought I'd make this the night for an update. I was planning on posting one tomorrow anyway. So far I'm still going. Usually 2 or three paragraphs to a half a page a night. Not a lot of progress, but I'm going. It'll get better as long as I keep at it. I think another week or two and I might post the first chapter. It already needs a rewrite as some events have changed, but I'll worry about that later.
Checking in once more, 18 days since the last time. An improvement. I'm managing about 2-3 paragraphs a night, but its slowly progressing. I'm just starting on my 7th page tonight. Made it about 9 1/2 lines onto the page. I am sooooooo rusty. I feel like I'm just repeating myself and using the same words over and over in descriptions. But the story is slowly getting somewhere. Now I just need to keep it up. Got my computer all set up to put me in the mood. Only my old backgrounds, my old username, all my writing files and Word. No stupid stuff to distract me. I kind of wish I had some of my old playlists, but I don't and I can't really remember too much of what was on them. Don't have time to try and hunt anything down right now either. What little time I'm managing needs to be spent writing.

I'm out yall, I'll check back again later.
Wow, so many good times here. I just dropped by again and actually became lost for about half an hour reading a conversation between kuroinami and myself in the comments to Darkness Come. It was something like 2 pages long. I can't beleive how good of a writer I used to be. I think it's time to start giving up some things in life and start writing again. That or I need to prioratize. Any of you out there want to take that damn 'smart' phone and just SMASH IT! I know I feel like that sometimes. It's been a while since I've written anything, but a lot of times I still randomly see something and words pop into my head, giving it a description. That's kind of how it used to be, only I could go on for pages without even thinking. My fingers would litterally just fly over the keyboard with words streaming out of them. I kid you not, that is what it felt like. Sometimes it was so fast that I'd lose them and trail off, and that was the death of a story usually, or at least the death of my writing for the night.

To all my old friends, Thank you so much for our times together! Thank you for your time! Thank you for like me...

Funny, but I think I say that every time I get on here... lol... Anyway... To anyone who hasn't seen it, but grew up with the American Pie franchise: Don't listen to the Reviews!!!! If you loved the original series your going to love Reunion even more!!! The wife and i went to see it this past friday, I was hoping it was going to be good, but come on, it's been a long time since Wedding. I practically drug the wife along, and we both LOVED IT!!! It's two weeks since the premiere, the theater had moved it to one of their smaller screen and you know what? The place was packed! Almost no empty seats! CHECK IT OUT!!!
