I have no face. There was a time when I may have owned one, but this is a fuzzy half-memory. In fact, it may be entirely an invention of fantasy. These days, regardless of my history, I know for a fact that I have no face. However, I have been granted a name: The American Obesity Problem. And I am growing in the United States. You may have seen me on television. You may have been witness to my disconcerting back cleavage and mystified by the seamless transition my legs make from my calves into my ankles. You probably saw my unsettlingly large, shelf-like behind as it strained against my tight Capri pants that I swore I would fi
Girls are stupid and boys suckMy older sister used to tell me, "You'll like boys someday."Girls are stupid and boys suck6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And my mom would rant, "Boys always get their way."
But my dad yelled, "You're to stay away from boys!"
Then my brothers all said, "We won't tell if you give us toys."
This made me think, "Wow, boys really suck."
In elementary I was the tough girl who beat up boys.
You see, no one else wanted to stop their stupid ploys.
All the other girls would just point, giggle and hide.
There was like some absolute law that they all had to abide.
Things that they did just didn't make sense to me.
I never dreamt about becoming a princess.
Or going to balls and wearing fancy dresses.

Second week of March, 1867
America said that New York and Virginia wouldn't be visiting until around nine in the morning, and that the snow would slow them down, no doubt. So at ten minutes to nine, Canada plopped down on the sofa and drowned himself in blankets, hoping to get some more rest after being unable to sleep the previous night. As the days creeped by his

Caden walked slowly through the empty park. He walked as if he was dragging himself, body hunched over, his cheeks stained with tears. He was covered in black from head to toe, as he always was. He heard his name being called in the distance; he lifted his head. His hazel eyes appeared empty, dark circles surrounded them; proof he hadn't been sleeping. He saw a figure step from the darkness, into

today miss society gave me these glasses,
and when i put them on
colourful bokeh fills my view
and it doesn't matter that it blurs everything else
it's not like the rest of the world wants to get to know me anyway.
life is so much easier in colour.
she has these thighs
that scream lust in frequencies that make my stomach turn.
her hip curls and makes this dip
and despite how much i shouldn't
i can practically taste her skin on my lips, it's beautifully haunting.

THE LIES ABOUT MUHAMMAD
How you were deceived into Islamophobia
By Moustafa Zayed
excerpt from ‘why this book?’ and the preface:
I could have gathered all the known fabrications and lies about Islam or Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and answered them one after the other in an indexed way. Why choose the Robert Spencer book "the Truth About Muhammad" to answer and refute its claims and accusations, page by page and paragraph by paragraph?
I wanted to show how far the intentional fabrications against everything Muslim have gone, and in details of its process and how it is done.
I wanted to demonstrate how parts or full Holy Quran verses

Nicky rolled his eyes as he came down from a pull-up. Adjusting his fists to wrap around snugly at the pull-up bar, he forced himself upwards. Instead of stopping when his chest was leveled with the bar, Nicky used the momentum to straighten his arms and raised himself above the steel bar before coming down. He repeated the step twice more before replying. "You

NumbersHumans need numbers. Have you ever noticed? We don't want to be a number, but we constantly surround us with them. There's a number at the front of our house, there's a number on our insurance card, there's a number for every day of the year, and there's a number on our car, twice, like a shield when we drive. We have a number for our instant message services (that we even know by heart), for several phones we own, for our bank account, access keys, PINs We hate and we love numbers. They take our identity away from us and give it back at the same time.Numbers3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The next morning, I woke up early in my hotel room, fully rested and refreshed. I did a quick stretch; then got out of my bed. Getting dressed, I grabbed some casual wear from my suitcase. I was wearing a maroon colored, short sleeved shirt. On the shirt was this logo of a designer company. I chose to match it with a pair of black corduroy pants. Very casual. After that, I briefly straightened my hair in the bathroom. I've got to look at least somewhat decent when going down to the lobby to get breakfast.
When I reached the lobby, I bought a newspaper that came out today. Guess what the top story was? "New talent along with the Fab Four" aka

The dark, bare barks of the trees stood up sharply against the misty air. Their thin skeletal branches, stripped of their leaves long ago, swayed in the cruel wind, whispering dark secrets in low, scratchy tones.
A dark figure observed all this nonchalantly.
A tiny leaf landed on her satin-clad shoulder. She plucked it off.
Summer ends soon, doesnt it? Too soon. Your life is so fleeting. Her long white fingers suddenly clenched as she crushed the fragile plant viciously into fine dust.
