You get 10 points if you elaborate, explain yourself, and prove that you actually read them.
1) Who Draws the Horizon?
I peer at the line where blue mountains plunge into a watercolor sky,
Where green desert seas swallow an amber disk of sun,
Where black-and-white waters and black-and-white lands shoulder a
Black-and-white moon and black-and-white clouds,
Where dreams lap onto reality like silver waves licking sand.
Who draws that many-sided line—
Could I find a knife to slice between oceans, rock, sky,
To segment the world like a blue and green slab of butter?
Could I find a needle to sew together the realms of here and there?
Could I pinch together what is near and far away?
Or could I loosen those invisible stitches of the world,
And pull apart earth and sky like two lovers from an embrace?
Could I simply peel off the horizon like a free length of string,
A strip of weak tape,
Like prying two lips open to glare into darkness?
Could I just hop onto clouds—the ones like mountains of snow?
O! Imagine dancing across them with an angel’s gold bare feet,
To scale those mile-high pillows and suck a drop of honey
From a glistening sun!
Could I grip fistfuls of sky and climb into space?
Could I run over and visit my dreams?
Climb up to heaven,
And gaze down at the globe like Zeus in his throne?
How can I pull out that tight band that means end?
How can I let dreams and visions mix with life and now?
Tell me how to shake off that belt
To put a limit to limit
And build a road to forever?
If I never will, who does?
Who draws the horizon?
2) Modest hair befalls her eyes
The path hath stripped her of life
All the wretchedness she has seen
weakens each softening step
Behold, perfect sanctuaries
jeweled by fallen emerald
Pink so sweet an angel’s heart
can only weep
Light shafts fill the truth
Brings dew to weary eyes that hath seen
Her journey is nigh…
Yet still she walks
Her soul brims with the helpless
Bedraggled steps fall slower
No more can she go
Abiding by a crystal stream
She lay down for a sip
Closes her eyes and drifts away…
Heartaches seen through
falling water’s wash
Cruelty and desire pains
her tired, sodden heart.
Alas she rests before a meadow
and sees the glory she hath witnessed
No vanity or heartlessness,
solely Love and Thee
Embraced by the soft morning sun,
Life sprouts up around her
and once again grows lush
A noble chariot sweeps low
A gentle voice says “come”
She layeth upon a golden white
wing, as she ascends her one last
journey, her story closes to an
Example: What does my dream mean?
I haven't sleep walked since I was seven. I'm turning fifteen in January. Why did this start again after eight years? In my dream I was drinking a crimson liquid out of a wine glass. But, it wasn't wine it had a metalic scent to it. I can actually smell,taste, and feel things in some of my dreams. I was wearing a Victorian or something gown. It was black in color. Everything looked like I went back in time, but it was in the future. I was eighteen or nineteen, maybe twenty. I looked like a goddess of the night. Their was also a man he's what could be described as tall,dark, and hansome ( spelling? ). His hair was a cascade of ebony. His clothes were an all black suit. His eyes and mine were a strange color. His I suspect used to be a brown or for some reason green were now a blood red. My once sapphire blue were now a shocking shade of violet. Both of us were very pale. I'm very pale in real life so it probably means nothing.

My arm moved in my sleep and spilt eyes water all over me.
He is not really a friend, more a acquaintance. I find him attractive but he is not someone I ever think about.
I had a dream last night. I'm not sure wtf it means but please explain to me what you think it symbolizes. So, this is the dream. I wake up in a forest. I walk to a tree and I lick the branch then it cut to pitch black. Later, after the long pitch blackness. I wake up in a hospital and my friends are there and so is my family. They look sad. A doctor comes in and says ''Woah, you're alive!'' and I looked suprised. ''What the hell happened'' I said. ''You were raped'' the doctor said. I said ''By who?'' He said ''I don't know.'' Again, pitch black. I wake up AGAIN and I am in the forest licking the tree from where I left off and then the tree branch slaps me. I yell ''Ow!'' He said ''No sex unless you have a condom!'' I said ''What? Who are you talking to?'' Then out of nowhere, I get pushed on the ground, my pants are pulled off. THE TREE WAS TALKING TO THE RAPIST BEHIND ME AND THE HOSPITAL SCENE WAS BEFORE THE RAPE SCENE?! Then he said ''let me give you a tattoo'' and I said ''Ok man but don't hurt me!'' And he gave me a tattoo on my stomach and then above my pubes (just continue) and the tattoo was an owl. I look up and notice the ''rapist and ''person'' giving me the tattoo was infact an OWL! Or was it... After he gave me the tattoo, PITCH BLACK AGAIN. NOTHING. Then the hospital, I wake up no one there. I notice it was 12 am and all of my friends left and family. I was doped up on a lot of morphine and other drugs. Then I get out the bed and escape the hospital. No one was there... I walk to a forest and when I get there I lick a tree branch... HUh? Didn't this happen before? Well, listen. An owl gives me a tattoo and I walk back to the hospital and on the way back, a guy says ''Thanks for last night Honey'' ''What?'' I say. He says ''Remember the sex? I raped you good and I want more!'' I scream ''**** no!'' And he strips me, I feel helpless, I shake. Then I wake up in the hospital. Family there, friends, and the doctor says ''I was raped'' and I say ''Again?'' and he says ''What are you talking about AGAIN?!''
That's it. That was the dream. What does it mean. What do the characters symbolize and what doe s the dream itself symbolize. Plz Help.
I don't even know who the kid is!

Example: Am I bisexual, or paranoid?
I feel kinda wrong asking on this cat because you'll all call me gay most likely.
mmm, okay. I am 16 years old and before 2010 I was 100% straight, I wouldnt even sleep in the same bed as a guy if he was at the top and I was at the bottom, and hated when guys got close to me and stuff. I also remember last year I was out with a guy who was drunk and he took out his penis infront of everybody and I was like "okay...put it away?" and since the age of 13 I have been watching straight porn, but hated ******* scenes and loved lick out scenes, and I had plenty of girlfriends, but I am still a virgin. Okay I know reading that it makes me seem completely straight but at the end of Janurary I sucked my penis, during masturbating to lesbian porn. I mean after that everything has been different, I have to look at guys sexuallty now and hate it, I have still never actually got an erection from a guy but I seem to think im complete homosexual, Ive never had a gay fantasy and when I watch gay porn I dont get hard. I do however still masturbate to girl porn, and have sexual dreams with girls. but me thinking im gay has really ruined my whole life, im currently at a counselour but things arent getting better. I cant even see myself with a woman in the future now, I was always known as the homophobic guy to my friends, but I actually always had respect for homosexuals, and support them, its just not me, I dont want to be around guy friends incase I kiss them or they kiss me. I look at a guy looking guy-eg-John Travolta (in his day lmao) and think oh jesus I fancy him, I admit he is good looking but I have to imagine me giving him a bj to make sure I dont like him like THAT. Nobody knows what I am going through, even though girls turn me on and stuff I always think "whats so good about a vagina" but I always loved it :\ whats wrong? If i hadnt of sucked my dick btw I would have never thought about it, worst mistake I ever made.
A Pie from My Heart
A long yesterday ago a young girl named Mary decided to tell her crush that she liked him. She wrote a letter in her favorite notebook, explaining that she liked him. She gave it to her best friend Leighann. Leighann gave it to Mary’s crush, Alex.
In the note she decided to ask him out. The note also had a made-up story of the worst that could happen to Mary and her social life because of the note. Now Mary was just waiting and waiting for a answer
Mary was in fourth period, math, and the most boring class in the history of the world. She was doodling on her math homework. All over it was her name, Mary, along with Alex’s last name. All the sudden a surprise announcement was made over the intercom “all students go to the gym”.
Everyone rushed from their seats entirely happy that they could get away from the “thinking” class. I ran to the gym in a rush to see what all the excitement was about.
When everyone was seated in the gym our principal Mr. Jones made an announcement. “We have a very special announcement from one of our very own students, Alex” he whispered into the microphone.
Alex ran down from the highest row of bleachers. “Mary” he called once he was in the middle of the gymnasium. I was in the first row so I easily got up and walked over to him in a daze. I wondered what the hay was going on.
I stood by him confused and clueless. Alex kneeled down on one knee. I bent down beside him.” This is something I’ve wanted to give you since the moment I met you.” He yelled loudly so everyone could hear him. We both leaned closer. Gasps were gasped all from different directions flooding into my ears. Is he going to kiss me?
I closed my eyes. My face felt wet and slippery. In the nick of time I had whip cream, blueberries, and pie crust stuffed into my face. It’s All over my hair. I groaned. He had put a pie in my face “holy shrimp” I screeched with my lungs.
I licked my lips. “Gross. Blue berries.” Blueberries were definitely not one of my favorites. The whole auditorium was roaring and raging with laughter’s. I looked up at him.
Tears flooded from my eyes, slipping down my face, at a rapid pace. He smiled a grin so huge as well as mean. The devil danced around in his eyes. I put my head down with embarrassment.
(I wrote this story because I was making up excuses of why I was so scared to ask my crush out and I imagined what would happen :)
I cry, and they laugh
My vision was dizzy, but when I saw Lizzie, I knew exactly what I had to do.
I crouched down, aware that she may be stronger than m. I jumped off the ground, like a lion catching his prey. I was kicking, scratching, and punching her as hard as possible. She barely was able to fight back.
“Girls stop that!” Mrs. Crierson snapped.
But of course I would not, so she had to pull me off.
“What has she ever done to you? Huh?” of course she was going to stick up for her daughter. Her evil daughter.
“sh-she-she se-sent a-an –e-e-mail to-“ I started to cry. “m-my” sniffle. “Biggest-cr-crush of all times-sa-saying that I like him!” I finally got it all out.
My cheeks had little tears everywhere, flowing down, and smearing all of my cover-up. I would never want to see myself in the mirror at that moment.
As I looked up they all broke out in laughter. Every one of them. The cruelness kicking my already broken heart.
As I woke up with tears in my eyes I wonder: would Lizzie really do that?
I wrote this because of a dream. I really did wake up crying. And she really was that mean. It was a dream because of something my "friend" did in the past and it felt good to write and let it all out...
