I am a un-smart person wanting to be smart!
I wonder if I ever will be smart...
I hear the voices of peeple mocking me.
I see the world thru a key hole, but I want more.
I pretend... I dont pretend anything. Its lying.
I cry when I loose hope in getting smart.
I hope that I will be choosen for the operashun.
I need someone to understand me and treet me like everyone else.
I wish I was smart... wait, did I say that already?
I am a guy named Charlie Gordon
I am a genius who has once known what it was like to be mentally disabled.
I wonder why people still exclude me from things even after I have become a genius.
I hear the sounds of the lab; the machines, test animals, and other doctors.
I see myself as being superior to the ones who I once thought were smart.
I pretend to be the same Charlie Gordon but I seem to be changing in thoughts and personality.
I cry when I can't seem to understand other people's reaction towards my change.

Flowers for Algernon...Flowers for Algernon is a science fiction novella written by Daniel Keyes. The story is about a thirty-seven year old, mentally challenged man, named Charlie Gordon, who is picked for an operation.

As my parents drove through the unfamiliar streets, I stared out the window in silence, listening to my iPod...
'And when it rains...
On this side of town it touches, everything.

Prologue: a vampire storyProloguePrologue: a vampire story by diamondrubylove
Have you ever had that feeling where the world around you is falling apart? And you have that feeling where you're about to die at any second? I couldn't believe that this was happening... Just the day before, everything seemed perfect! Everything was going the way it should have been. No, in fact it was better. The day before was the best day of my 17 year old life. And just 24 hours later, my life was... gone. Hanging. Smothered. Almost dead. My life was hanging on a thin, transparent thread. The only thing that could have saved me would be: a) my unsuccessful luck. b) my... average intelligence. Or c) My prince charming... who at the moment is possibly fighting just for me... So I went with all of the above. I watched as tall shadows crept closer. They were coming... I was hiding... would their sense of smell track me? Even if I was covered in rotten fish and frog guts from a Biology class? I clutched the charm necklace that my prince had given me the day before. I closed m
Shattered HeartMy heart is shatteredShattered Heart by ironcrosswolf
you left it at my feet
I gave it to you so willingly
and now you have left
giving no doubts of your feelings
I told you i loved you
and you laughed in my face
as if you are too good for me
as if it was ridiculous
and you didn't care
As you walked away
I counted the steps in my head
for shall i remember
the day I took my life
My body may have died that day
but not my soul
or my heart
for they were never mine to have
they were always yours
and will always be yours
I live on
through the love I gave
not only to you
but to everyone I met
I will live on
not only for you
for its not all about you
your not who i am
you do not define who I am
I love you
if I can't be with you
I will loose a part of me
would I ever get it back
if I had the strength
to live without you
Am I really alive
my heart is all I had
but it is no more
thats how I now realize
that I am no more
I will always love you
and watch over you from up here
