Silent Protest

They don’t think we can make a difference
They don’t think we stand a chance
But if they only looked a little closer
They’ll see we’re ready to advance
Marching silently without anger
All together we will dance
Stand here without armor
In a silent protest
They don’t think we’ll stop buying things
They don’t think we will try
But what they don’t know
Is that all of us will apply
Years of hard work and follow
Our own, and supply
All we need to mark our shadow
In a silent protest
They try to steal our rights
They try to steal our lives
Together we can fight
Together we take flight
To launch our
Silent protest

I Don’t Care

Blast my music loud
I don’t care
Scream at the top of my lungs
I don’t care
If you hear me down the street
I don’t care
Just leave me to my beat
I don’t care
Stay up all night
I don’t care
Writing depressing poems
I don’t care
What you think of me
I don’t care
If you don’t like it, you can leave
I don’t care
You probably can tell
I don’t care
How blue the sky is
I don’t care
How fresh the air is
I don’t care
How much you love me
I do care
When it’s comes to you and me
I care
When it comes to you and her
I don’t care
I can still ignore it
I don’t care
Just keep the truth to yourself
I don’t care
Tell me that you love me
I do care

Just Pretending

Chapter 9

After our disastrous trip to Mia’s beach house I decided I needed to make it up to her. So when I found out a host of artists would be playing a show on campus, I knew I had to get tickets. I pulled a few strings and managed to score three spots. Mia was thankful for her cut, which was clear from the loud high pitched squeal she gave when I casually brought it up.

“Girl, you can’t tell Jayden,” she immediately stated after she had finished squealing in my ear and squeezing me furiously.

I frowned at her,”But I got him a ticket too…”

“I don’t mean don’t bring him!” She laughed rolling her eyes exasperatingly, “What? You think I’m some possessive boyfriend?”

Again I frowned at her, “Jayden is not possessive.”

“Okay,” she sighed taking a step towards me, “we are totally off track here. What I mean is don’t tell him about the concert and just take him there, like a surprise date.”

Finally

When I opened the old squeaky mahogany door, I half expected to see them sitting in the oversized living room waiting on me. But when I stepped into the foyer, dark and silent, it was clear I was the first to arrive. The air was stale, like a bag of tortilla chips left open for days. My fingers clumsily felt along the wall for light switches I knew had to be there, but all I could feel was the dust collecting to my fingers like felt on a sweater. I stepped in a bit more, reaching my dirty digits further along the icy wall before hitting the panel. Then I flipped the switch. In front of me was the once grandly decorated house, now bare and void of the remembered comforts.

I’d always wanted a house like this, large and spectacular, with beautiful chandeliers and rooms for each member of the house. A house with a game room to play in, a family room for congregating, a dinning room for beautifully laid banquets, a large living room for hosting extravagant parties, and an even bigger kitchen to support those festive activities. But standing in the front of such a house, I felt small and insignificant. I felt anything but royal. I felt isolated and suddenly lonely. Why are they not here yet?

Chapter 8

“Wake up sleepy head. The sun is shining and the weather is great for a day out,” Mia sang as she barged into my room. I rolled over and covered my head with a pillow. The night before had been a late one, with my thought process making it nearly impossible to sleep. Between thinking about starting a life with Jayden and closing the door on my relationship with Caleb, I was just feeling so conflicted.

Mia grabbed the pillow from me and began to beat me with it. “Get! Up!”

“Fine! Fine!” I shouted back sheltering myself from her brutal attacks. Looking over, I could see Jayden had already gotten out of bed. “Where’s Jayden?”

“Of course you would ask that,” she commented rolling her eyes, “and you claim you’re not obsessed.”

“Mia,” I laughed hopping out of bed, “it was only a question.”

She sighed as she threw the pillow down, “He’s moping around the kitchen.”

Him and Her

It was too complicated
What those two had created
Together for the first time
To them it wasn’t a crime
A blessing hard to come by
For what they thought was to lie
They had to run away together
Trying to remember
How it was before
They had to run away together
Searching for an answer
Deep within the core
Him and Her
Back then their love was hated
But they still had to make it
They knew it wouldn’t be kind
But they still stood in the line
Once they got the ring
And then their legal binding
They had to run away together
Trying to remember
How it was before
They had to run away together
Searching for an answer
Deep within the core
Him and Her
They knew their love was true
They just didn’t know who
Would believe their stories of love
But somehow they rose above
All the negativity and hate
Which came to a stalemate
They had to run away together
Trying to remember
How it was before
They had to run away together
Searching for an answer
Deep within the core Him and Her

What Anger Does…

What happened to,

“My door is always open” ?

What happened to,

“I love you”?

So what is your pathetic reason?

What is your fucking issue?

Where did you disappear to?

Did you run to your mommy?

Don’t have the balls to face me?

Well all I have to say is…

I’m tired of trying

And hiding

Waiting for you to get over yourself

I’ve done my part

I’ve given it my all

You can do what you want

No more will I wait

On you for an answer

Got to fill the black hole in my heart

And if you happen to come my away

Again

I’ll just say

FUCK YOU!
