I have an assignment in one of my classes to "write a lullaby for a specific audience" (yeah, it's a useless, inane course, it's called "Communications Technology" but has absolutely nothing to do with technology), so I came up with this song. I wrote it about the girl in the autism speaks video whose mother said something about wanting to throw her off a bridge (yeah, I know. What the hell?)

Jodie's Lullaby

Hush my darling, don’t you cry
For you are safe tonight
Don’t worry about the days ahead
Everything will be alright

If they don’t understand you,
That’s their fault, not yours,
Your mom wishes you were different
Your kindness she ignores.

Someday when you’re older,
You’ll meet others like you,
You’ll be loved for who you are,
You’ll grow to love them, too.

Go to sleep, my child,
For in your dreams tonight
You’ll run and swing and jump and play,
In a world that’s beautiful and bright.

Hush my darling, don’t you cry
For you are safe tonight
Don’t worry about the days ahead
Everything will be alright

I may as well reside here
‘till something can alleviate this fear
you see
this is how I be
when I’ve got no nails left
death is the only thing that feels right
that’s why I’m never afraid of theft
‘cause I’ve never been that bright
that’s all I thought I had left
and then my shadow fought its step right
‘cause it won a bet with whatever personality I have left
and now I’m walking in its light

i'm a man of my own mind
drowning in a flock of sheep
enveloped in a deluge of white
my purples and greens just blind

separation from society
it's the only way not to be
escape from your very own mind
so blindly happy as to be kind

yes i want sex but not malicious
yes i want killers dead but not vicious
no i want the poor to be prosperous
no i want the rich to be conscious

separation from society
it's the only way not to be
escape from your very own mind
so blindly happy as to be kind

i'm not a drone to the beat
care for animals but still eat meat
no i'm not a drone to melody
turning your drama into comedy

Planet Earth

A nice place to visit
but I wouldn't want to live there.
Might have to pack a bag
and be a lady hobo.
Where would I sleep though?
I'm afraid of my shadow.

On a dark night my soul
wants to go wondering,
squandering minutes and hours.
Time's nothing anyway.
No matter what I say,
it always comes back
to bite me.

Why not excite me then,
delight me with a taste
of eternity. Between you
and me there is nothing,
and everything I see
reflects what could be
if I was free of matter.


One Moment Please

God doesn't live in a brick s**t house.
He lives in a shack by the river.
The last time I saw him he was
sitting on a log drinking tea
and smoking tobacco.

Please understand
he is woman, she is man
sometimes cranky
sometimes sweet
God has two left feet
but that doesn't stop
them from dancing.

God doesn't care
if you're plain
or if you're fancy,
what you did last Monday,
where you go next Sunday.
God only knows
there is no time like the present
to be present when the sun goes down.

Umbrella

I try hold up the umbrella,
To cover up the rain,
But all of it gets through,
This represents the pain.
It lowers my own self asteem,
And everything goes wrong,
Sometimes people think when I'm down,
I am not "down" it for long.
Others think I make it up,
To try and get attention,
And that it's some how grow on me,
Into a bad obsession.

I give up.
I quit.
My life just feels like s**t.
I've tried.
To win.
This game I'm always in.
Don't want.
To play.
This game that life just plays.
I've had.
Enough.
I'm worse than "feeling rough".

Sometimes.
I just.
Want to feel lots of pain,
To cut.
And bleed.
Again. Again. Again.
I'm so.
Used to.
The suffering of it.
Being.
Treated.
Just like a piece of s**t.

I want.
To go.
To 1993.
And be.
A kid.
Without any worries.
Or no.
Bad thoughts.
Of smashing up my skull.
Into.
A pane.
Of glass or a window.

I try to hold a brave face,
But somehow it's stopped working,
I try to hold my mood in,
So people will not question.
They'll ask why am I sad,
Or angry, tense, or mad.
If I were to the tell the reason,
It will be like a treason.
They will know what I'm hiding,
For now it says in binding.
I'd rather stay and fake it,
Telling it makes me feel naked.

If.
I tell.
About this ASD.
I fear.
I will.
Get even more bullied.
I'd rath..
...er be.
Labelled as retarted.
Cos..
If.
I say.
I'm back where I'm started.

I've got.
This far.
Drenched in all of this rain.
This Um...
...Brella.
Has soaked my clothes again.

I'm f****d if I do, and I'm f****d if I don't,
I'm f****d if I will, and I'm f****d if I won't.
A catch 22 rules me over my days.
Depression.
And life.
Treats me like their slave.

Homicide?
Suicide?
Cyanide?
Help?

Bottle up?
Let it out?
Stay in doubt?
Yelp?

Keep going?
Stay flowing?
Have a go?
Cope?

Smile?
For a while?
Think good thoughts?
Hope?

I can't get onto the showcase site--it says "404-not found".
Here are a couple of poems I wrote. I don't share my poetry with anyone I know, so any kind of criticism would be *very* useful. Positive/Negative/Neutral... it all helps. I am hoping to publish a book of poetry someday.
Thanks for reading! :)
----------

fall into darkness


choking and walking with twisted feet
under remodelled clouds to the Theatre of Nowhere

this is a dead end, where can I possibly
go from here?

this is the place
where food lost its taste, and I lost my mind

back and forth, through tides of cold bodies with cold faces
to a dusty room upstairs,

where nights were let sail
weeping amongst the designs, not yet drafted

and in the steep surrounding slopes,
snow-stars eddying towards the black bottom


and that pleasant woman, who'd stood there, smiling at me
is now a lump of adipocere


-----------------------------------------

xenon


i am rare,
but not alone

rolling through
the cosmic swarm

i have no charge,
i make no action

never becoming involved;
no attraction

and i don't know
what my role is

in this endless exchange...
i only know

that when the current shoots through me
i flash with such intensity

that the shocked lookers might think
they've witnessed a miracle

or a signal
to some distant world

------------------------------------

I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses technical words! Your poem is intruiging. Do you read Pattiann Rogers, by chance?

http://www.fanfiction.net/secure/story_ ... 3315055/1/

i hope those work.
http://www.fanfiction.net/~dcnight if not everything is here
anyway those are the three stories that i am willing share with the net.
the stories from top to bottom.
Hedgehog Wars
a story that i'm redoing to sound better,
500 years ago a war broke out between humans and anthros, weapons were built and multiple spieces were nearly killed off. Now one weapon is left with a deadly program and an angry creator's last wish. But what will happen this time around...
that's the short description that i copied from fanfiction.

The Exile of Roxas
it is said that roxas abandoned the organization, i don't believe it. so here is a theory on why he left. i believe it was all in the plan.
a short oneshot story about roxas.

The Return of Xemnas
Two years later after kingdom hearts 2 Xemnas and his gang have died and gone to the void to be destroyed eternally, after finally feeling regret Xemnas is given one chance to right all the wrongs he did, after agreeing he is revived. Can he change or not?
might be my new main story it is a kingdom hearts story that is a weird take on revival\repentence stories, this one has no rules and constantly changes pace with each typed letter.

Here is some of my best work.. well its my favorites anyway. Lemme know what you guys think. Most of these were written like 4 years ago.

Oh, Woe To the Ones

Oh, woe to the ones who see the truth crystal clear
They yell out to the people who are too afraid to hear
The world looks away... the truth they can't bear
A world of the fools... and of those who don't care

Oh, woe to the ones who eat the bread
Of the pain, famine, and innocent dead
Forever they rot in the sorrow of time
Lost in a painfully ironic rhyme

Oh, woe to the ones who crawl in a cage
Filled to the brim with hatred and rage
The time they have lived has forever been lost
The life that they waste is their one biggest cost

Oh, woe to the ones who drink from the sky
Where women and children and the innocent cry
The tears that they shed will cover the earth
New pain and sorrow of which they gave birth

Oh, woe to the last of which have to be
The past left by us... for them to see
And when all time has finally ended
The wounds of the wasted will, at last, be mended

Dream of Time

I don't worry about tomorrow,
It’s just one more day till death.
Every second that comes and goes is one more taken breath.
All the past that has been present is just a faded dream.
It can make you crazy...
Make you angry...
Forcing you to scream.
The future waiting to be present seems so far away,
But it arrives just the same and there for good it will stay.
The dream of time
It never ends
It fades to eternity,
But all of the seconds I have spent…
Have all been lost to me.

My Enigma

Hidden in the tomb of my mind
All these words I keep to myself
Lost to the ones who care to know
Never feeding the holes that plague my being.

Living in dusty feelings
Hating the everlasting thoughts
Of ignorance and painful ideas
And of love that is fleeting and useless.

Where is the eventually?
What happened to the better?
It is locked away by eternity
Never holding the ones who cry out for it.

Just words... It's all they want
Words… It’s all they will give
What more do I need?
Never will I find the one who knows... till I find myself.

I let loose a single tear imbued with my essence...
All that I am, all that I was, all that I can ever hope to be,
Shed, cast out, expulsed... and then I am alone.
There is no more to lose, nothing left to gain,
None to hope for, and none to take away.

Empty shell of hallowed might,
It tumbles down with an unspoken scream.
