“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”- dr suess

"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."
— John Green

I see what you hear
I hear what you see
Listen close
Eyes wide open
the truth comes from within thee

I am the monster
I am the nightmares
I lurk in the shadows
Watching, Waiting
For a victom
I am a punishment
I am a victory
I am loved yet hated
The theif
Of what is cheerished most

I go by many names
Joy,Hate,Luck, Vengence
But known for my trademark
I am dark and twisted
I am Light and free

I break you of your berriers
I wrench you from life
I am chosen
I am prevented
I am them
I am you.

Really brave of you to tackle this subject. I think my poem titled "Death Reject" has something is similar with this. Only that mine tackles different subject while yours tackles strength and courage. i read through yours once again and i see a face of death being bipolar. Nice way of portraying death. 5 stars.


If you will take a look at my work "death reject" it will be really amazing of you. thanks and i'm glad I take a look at your work. keep it up.

I agree. I've got to. This is the best work I've read by you. Death is your best piece. I can't stress that enough. :)

things are only as dark as you make them.
there is always beauty in every situation. look for it and you will see.
smile; sometimes it's all that will keep you from crying.

By far the best piece I've read by you... you're very talented. Keep up the writing! I am beyond words at the moment at this particular poem... it is just.... unbelievable... wow.
