Then and Now

Then the words were said.
The warmth was inside.
After, feelings became.
The heat was blazing.
Now the words are lost.
The fire is out.

Walking through the forest of wants.
Many old faces with new faces.
The path long and tiring.
Echos of words long gone words.
Can barely walk now.
Losing sight now.
THe weight of the everything heavier.

Scars (Part I)

"Hey, Jason," said a classmate as he walked down the hall. Jason smiles showing his dimples. He was Mr. Popular. He played all the sports and was friends with everyone. He was just adorable. But there was something not right, something weird. He would always hid his hands. He would walk with his hands in his pockets as if he didn't want the world to see them. He didn't. He had these horrible scars on his hands. He never explained how he got them to anyone. It was too painful a memory to talk about. The scars reminded him of her, Lexi.


And as the rain poured down on us, I looked at her and realized I was looking at someone else. She wasn't the same. Her once beautiful brown hair was now a dark heavy blue, her clothes were tighter as if she wanted not to breathe. It didn't make sense to me. This wasn't the girl i had fallen in love with, she wasn't my best friend anymore, she was just some girl. She had changed, inside and out. The rain washed away all the make up and for the last time I glanced at her. I saw the girl, the one I fell for and then I walked away, far away, never to come back. She called out to me, but I couldn't hear her, all I heard was the raindrops washing her away.
