Where, in any of those, can you

The rules mean everything

Like an Ant.To the mountain,
Who are we?
So small against its grandeur.
To the eagle,
What are we?
Odd-lesser beingschaining themselves to the ground
Rather than embracing the freedom of forever.
To the leopard,
Who are we?
Noisy, clumsy, oblivious, obvious
So unlike her own graceful mastery
To the human,
Who are we?
Empowered, all powered, all worthy and
All knowing. All is ours.
Or is it?
For, to an ant,
We might be
Just a mountain,
Grand and great in awesome size
Yet slow, moving in unconceivable slowness.
Just an eagle,
High, distant, unconcerned and
For, to an ant, there might be
A thousand million uncounted uncountable
Things to do, things done

have you ever felt all you could do was fall
have you ever felt that the whole world was yours
have you ever felt that all to see were closed doors
have you ever felt like you're the one
have you ever felt like you're no one

Nor are you as
your tormented, perfected heart would

Of all things PastThe girl sat, silently watching the normal class room noise rise in a crescendo.
She, unlike so many others, had nothing to say about this outrage. It seems that she alone, out of all present, had REALLY gotten the message. She also knew a disciplinary pretext when she saw one. She silently watched the teacher's artless attempt to mollify the students.
And, as usual, she was the excrescence, the last little bit that didn't belong. Just because SHE wasn't noisy and rude and demanding . that was just an accrual of her natural temperament. And while she never fit in, she never wanted to. She was satisfied with her facile use of incantation and pen. She was satisfied with her wit, her sarcasm, her vast ability to take words out of context and use them against you, just when you wished most to recant them.

last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
