‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé


Like a man, he looks at them—
The children so innocent,
Whose lives are like rare gems,
To whom the warnings are sent.

Jumping, running and playing,
They look happy and in peace,
Unaware of everything,
Things that were planned by the beast.

Close, he is getting closer,
Getting ready to do it—
Befriend them and take them there,
To a place where he could fit.

Some call it “the punishment,”
Others call it “the fireplace,”
And though in it is torment,
He calls it “home”—the dark place.

This is about kidnapping. There had been rumors about children missing spreading.

I actually like it. I mean, doing a lot of things, or at least, trying to. I wrote a poem then essay, then short stories. I want to have part in every section of this site, I think. :) I may be bizzare with some but I'm trying to improve. :)

Anyway, thanks for your comments. And I'm glad you like it. =D

You're not stealing an idea? Maybe, not. YOu know. It's my idea. But if you ask if you can use it, my answer is yes. Plus, mine is poem.. yours is story..so i think it's ok :)

Stupid of you? You're sure? Well, of course not!

I'd read your articles, commented on them and rated them. They're all good which means you're a good writer. If you want to write, write. And I wouldn't mind if you got the idea from this poem or somewhere else. Btw, I'm not good in making stories. :)))

Actually never mind it was stupid of me to say that.  You should write a story with that topic it would be really interesting.  Sorry. :/
