August Feature!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 13, 2013, 5:08 AM
Each month our admins picks their favorites from the gallery, and we put them in the featured folder for a month.
And here they are, the August selection!



Walnut Forest by FauxHead Sea of Liesi.
My father never read me the story of Icarus. I found it for myself. I suppose he did not want me to know what it was like to almost touch the stars. But it was only after I had read the story did I even try to reach so far. It is a little like falling in love...and then drowning in the sea.
(I would be lying if I said the fall didn't break everything I had once believed was solid.)

My science teacher knew well that I was a dreamer. When I told her I believed fairytales were as real as love is, I could see the disapproval and disappointment in her eyes. I suppose thats why in her classroom, when I was asked what the greatest force in the universe was, I answered love. I suppose thats why she laughed and reminded me that love was as much a fairytale as the fairytales I believed in.
(She was wrong. Love exists...its just been broken into a million little pieces, set afloat in a sea of heartbreak.)
iii.
My mother didn't want to speak about t

looks like yours
and I'm not quite sure
if I should stay and wave
or run the other way
because everything with you was bittersweet
and I don't know what to call you
my heart says you were mine
(my brain knows I wasn't the only one)
so I'm stuck with tasting
but never eating
I still see you in everything
in this old love song
in his face
on every street corner
I'm plagued by the thought of you
so tonight I'm dressed up real nice
to go on a date with a real nice boy
who brang me my favorite flowers
and says all the right things
(but he'll never be you)
and I'm trying to erase our memories
(but they're all written in pen)

No way to expect that they're waiting.
It was a Wednesday, A warm, sunny Wednesday
So beautiful, so disgusting, So wrong.
They're waiting, so unusual, unreal, unexpected,
Like statues, expressionless, "Sit down, we have to talk".
Oh no, what now? Did I do something wrong?
Am I in trouble? I sit there, waiting
A bomb exploded! Tearing through me.
I didn't want to believe it. I couldn't believe it.
They're lying, they have to be lying. But why would they?
How could they? I knew it was true but I didn't believe it.
Memories flooded my thoughts. My mind a creek, a river, an ocean,
Knowing that they're out there, somewhere,
They're waiting...
Forbidden LoveYour warmth surrounds,
Your arms so soft,
heavy beats sound,
from my heart aloft.
Why can a simple hug,
make my skin crawl,
spread warmth, a drug,
knot insides to a ball?
Oh the effect you hold,
on my heart so frail,
sadly, already sold,
to a heartless male.
RiverRiver knows the things to say
River knows which way to go
A city down from yesterday
An honest name and fitting show
River means no thing to me
River's just so innocent
The road we take and things we see
Aren't anything but eminent
Another mile of desert view
Another loss of sanity
Wake me when the skies aren't blue
And give me back my energy
And in this place I'm bound to go
I don't think I've heard your name
Tell me something I don't know
And tell me that you are insane
A river knows the way to go
But would never know of any else
Sometimes I'd like to turn the flow
Or have it stare into itself
Another stretch of empty air
This river doesn't seem to end
Make a twist or simple flair
Make a turn or subtle bend

Unfortunately, as a result it's brought a very interesting mix into the fray...
With the internet quite literally being able to connect the Earth's 7 billion people together, land boundaries and national borders start to fade as we slowly begin to edge away from being different nations into one race.  While that's cool and all, as a result it's created its own mix of people that really aren't nice to hang around.  While every country, region, even town has its own loser that exists only to bring others down, a
