I don't like the pill. If I slip up and take one a couple hours later than I'm supposed to, I freak out that I'm gonna get pregnant--because it would be totally unfair to tell him he's gotta use the condoms that he hates just because I can't understand the instructions on the pill package. I am so fucking scared that I am gonna screw this up completely and be the only pregnant AP student.

I love you.

I've been meaning to tell you for a while now, but I can never find the right way to say it. There is never a preface cute enough, or charming enough. The timing is never right, something is always coming up and ruining the moment.

Anyways, and like I said before, I just wanted you to know that I love you.

A long time ago (the twenty-seventh of November, 2005, at 8:15 PM) I wrote here, on Tangst, about my crush on you.

Yesterday (the twenty-first of December, 2006, at 11:00 PM) you were there at the dance.

It was odd, to see you there, uncomfortable among the elites, those people everyone dreams of being. It became clear to me then: you are not one of them, however good you are at pretending.

but...

I still love you.
I'm still here,

I had the most amazing dream last night. In the dream, I was dating what's his face, as I am in real life, and I was completely bored with him, also as I am in real life. You and I were flirting outside the west building in the freezing cold when you pulled me close to you and, in a characteristically awkward way, professed your love for me. It was beautiful. Even in my dream I had to stop myself from kissing your right then and there. Oh god, it was amazing.

I know it's terrible of me to want you so badly, especially when I already have "him". I just can't stop thinking about you. I stayed up until 4 in the morning last night to watch your favorite show just because it reminded me of you.

I know it sounds cheesy, but hope dreams come true.

Sometimes I feel like i'm completely over him. I can hold a completely sane and normal conversation without freaking out about every little detail. I think this is because now I see him for more then just a glimpse in the hallway.

Then other times, he'll say something small and insignificant, or do something really sweet (like yell at the annoying guy for bothering me) and i'll be the happiest person because of it. At those times I'm not over him, and think about what he's said in the past and whether it means anything.

I'm so ready to be over it and move on because I know for a fact he doesn't feel that way towards me, but for some reason I can't. Whenever a slow song comes on the radio, I still think of him.

honest love

NOW? now we're backstabbing slutaprostabitchahoes waiting to take another swing
aching to see the blood drip
and for the prey to die slow and terribly
hoping it will give an example of some kind of emotion
Feeling
Something we lost when we brought on the dope
when we started sniffing

I dated a guy for almost a year. We had a wonderful, casual, and realistic relationship. When we decided to break up it wasn't easy, but it could've been worse. After we broke up he was a real dick to me for a few months, butgot over it, for the past year we've been good friends. He is now dating one of my best friends, they are in a healthy long term relationship.
However, sometimes he is still really mean to me. He always judges my appearance, making comments that make me feel uncomfortable. He accuses me of trying to "steal" his girlfriend, even though he spends much more time with her than I do. He makes it very clear that she is much more important to him than me, often in rude or unneccesary ways. He speaks very openly about the sexual aspect of their relationship, often in a rude/immature/unneccesary manner. I know she would be offended by that.
My question is whether or not I should tell her about this. I don't want her to feel like I'm making her choose sides. She doesn't really know any of this is going on. I feel like she has a right to know, but at the same time I don't think it would change her relationship with him.

Last year, they pushed me so hard towards that goal. I did everything wrong, forced my way towards it. I cracked under the pressure, and fell apart.

This year, only I push myself. I'm working hard, and doing things right. So why now do they stand in my way?

Why are they so desperate (seemingly) that I not succeed--at least, not on my own?

The Tragedy of a Burden'd Heart

I've been secretly in love with the same person for the last four years. She's become available, then dating, then single, on and off. I wish she knew how I felt but I can't tell her. I'm not sure why, because I think that a relationship could and would actually work between us. And it's not like she hasn't shown an overt interest occasionally. Maybe I'm afraid of commitment, or afraid that she'll discover who I really am inside and not like that side of me quite so much. I just don't know.

It is entirely possible that she is reading this post tonight and wondering if it is about her. Well guess what, dearest.

It is about you.

Why, when I have the chance to reach out and seize that which would ensure my happiness, do I cautiously turn and let opportunity slowly drift away?

Good night and peaceful sleep to all souls, drifting lost in life or love. God speed to those who mourn for tragedy which befalls us all, and may the light of hope grace all our sights with the dawning of a new day.

let me know,
with the raptures of your mouth,
if you really care,
or if i need to pull away.

today i found myself in a position of incredible power (i was elected to the position). this may sound weird, but i REALLY liked it. i have never before thought about a career in politics, but today i seriously began to contemplate it.

i like being in power. i like seeing other people being intimidated when i walk over. i like to see people trying to kiss my ass (especially when i know that i'm no-nonsense, in-your-face straightforward, and that kinda shiz doesn't fly with me). i like being respected.
the best part is, i'm not a bitch--just incredibly determined.
i like it when things are done my way.

i don't know why, but the thought of being able to wield so much power freaks me out, even though i know that whatever i do i'd be amazing at it.

i'm not really this arrogant, it's hard to keep a cool head when you've been called "madam president" all day.

Christopher: How can you say that? I loved you! Can’t you see it in your soul?

Becky: A soul? Is that what you call it,
that empty pit, that wound where my heart should be?
You dug this hole in me bit by bit, nothing is left of me!
Give me one reason why I should stay.
See, you have no reply.
The world is gay or straight, but I am both or neither.
So goodbye!

Julianne: I'm sorry, Becky, really am.
Sorry to hear your life's a sham.
Still, it doesn't have to end this way!
So ask him out and don't be cute.
College—almost here. Don’t be a fruit!
Do it now, no one cries today.

GROUP: Don’t let it reoccur, why do you pity her?
Look at the options- why don't you stop her!
What kinda girl are you?
What are you gonna do?
We oughtta stop you too!
Why don't you stop her!
GET HER! GET HER!

Becky: Don't deny the obvious- such a bad girlfriend.
Everywhere you put me, look what I can’t mend!

(Becky stands on the edge of the platforms in front of the audience)

GROUP: Push her! Stop her! Jesus, Ashley!
Stop her! Push her! Push her! Do it!

Becky: Why don’t you just tell him, and let me release.
If you're not a coward, give me peace.

GROUP: It’s killing you bit by bit, why do you pity it?
Can’t take an upheaval-- God, you're both evil!
What kinda girl are you?
What are you gonna do?
Ashley, he wants you too!
Push her or we will!

(Ashley moves to push Becky off the platforms into the audience, but
can’t do it.)

Becky: Coward.

Ashley: I'm sorry.

Becky: You know...
One thing alone saved me from despair,
back when I was with Chris.

Adam: Becky...

Becky: Once in a while he would meet my stare.
Then I had nothing i would miss.

Adam: Becky, don't!

Becky: But surely his smile wasn't meant for me.

Adam: Becky no!

Becky: Easier to dismiss. But, tonight he kissed me, here.

(General gasp)

Becky: Tonight he gave me this. (She takes out Adams’s pants)

Group: Huh?

Becky: I smell his old spice and his sweat...

Ashley: Oh my God...

Group: Jesus!

Becky: Look what a gift he gave me- (Takes out condom)
Ashley: Is it true?
Becky: Almost enough to save me.
Adam: Yes!
Becky: And I imagine you're upset...
Ashley: Oh my God!
Becky: But I would sleep with him again!

Group: Stop her! Slap her!

Becky: And do you know what he did then?
Group: Stop!
Becky: He offered me his pain.
Group: No!
Becky: He offered me his love!
Group: God!
Becky: He offered me everything!

(Ashley runs to strangle Becky. Christopher stops her.)
Ashley: Christopher, I'm sorry. All of this is me.
Chris: Ashley, please.

Ashley: (overlapping)
I can't bear to look at you. She are all I see.
Her eyes, Chris, its in her eyes.
It hurts too much to put behind me... the way I lost you.

Chris: (overlapping)
Ashley, don't.
Please, oh Ashley, don't deny the obvious, leave the past behind.
We can start again, love. We have both been blind.

Julianne: Becky, damn you... Becky, you dirty horror...
Chris: Ashley, I forgive you. I know, my love, I know.
Ashley: And every day her eyes remind me.

Group: Slut! Slut! Slut!

Chris: Ashley, come here. Ashley, let it go!

Recently (say in the past year), I've noticed that I'm attracted to plenty of guys who just...aren't attractive. Some of them are actually ugly. I just think they are so funny, smart, or interesting that well..I'm into them. I'll occasionally mention it to another girl, and it's usually met with a repsonse like "are you crazy? he's really ugly!" and I'll be thinking "well yes he is, but it somehow doesn't matter".
Is this normal? Does anyone else find themselves attracted to people they know are not actually attractive? I can't seem to figure it out.

And he'll be gone soon, to some college far away, never knowing. And I'll be trapped here, where the memory of his smile haunts my steps, and the ghostly laughter fills empty classrooms. And I'll on my own. Again. Abandoned by those I loved best.

no matter how much i curse love and the gods for hating me so much, i know deep in my heart that if i didn't believe there would be no point anymore. i would just die.

I realized i turned into the girl that everyone hates at dinner parties. I was the bitch; i kept yelling at the little kids to just shut the fuck up (not in those words but i certainly thought it several times). I felt really bad, but I didn't know what else to do.

and then one of the older, brattier ones said: "wow, you look dead, and like crap."

well thanks, you stupid seventh grade slut. i feel like shit, and it's YOUR fault, so it makes it totally okay for you to insult ME.


you know what? fuck it; i'm going to be the bitch that everyone hates, and i'm going to be moody and grouchy at random times (no, not because i'm PMSing either), and i'm NOT going to explain myself.

A year ago, I thought you were a great friend, but as I spend more and more time with you, the more annoyed I get.
You are a black hole, sucking all the attention from anyone else. Jealous of the stars for their light, you steal their glory away into your abyss. You seem so imense, because your gravity is so awesome. But behind this charade, your matter is small and dense.

You've been hurt, I realize this, but do not think that simply because you were hurt that you deserve honor. Their is no honor in pity, and seeking pity will only leave you with a sickly-sweet, but brief feeling of importance. But the high you get is addictive, and since it is easily obtained, you prefer this drug over honest work for respect.
You are a salesman who talks too much, hopefull to sell us something. And we listen for a time mesmirized, not because of your product or eloquence (for in truth, you lack both) but because of the natural gifts (not earned) of a powerful voice and a pretty smile.
You want to be everyone and everything, but you spread yourself too thin. And when others best you, your defences rise to obvious hights.
Your have many who care for you, but few that you care for when they leave your sight, and thus your mind. Always looking for an ear to hear you, but never offering one to a friend in need -perhaps more need than you.
You create drama, and molehills become the Alps under your eyes, so you claim the worm is a snake and must be killed.
Or else, when bored or when your spirits are low, you slander others over imagined insults and unfounded suspicions.
Worried about your own status (though you need not be, since your friends would love you no matter what) you consantly seek the shadows for the eyes you know can look in your very soul.
But you will not find them there, for they lie in the shadow of your heart, which you can barely stand to look at for the shame you know that it would give you.

Ok well here goes.
So I really liked this girl for like 2 years. Finally ask her out. Go out for 7 months then she dumps me. That's all fine and shit if you want to do that to me it's your right to break up. But at least have the fucking honor to do it to my face not in a fucking email. Then on top of that hurt me worse by getting a new guy within 3 fucking weeks. Alright now you want to act like everything is ok. Well guess what honey, their is a reason why I cant look at one side of the room. And why I leave any possible chance I get. Truly I don't really know why i'm still mad. I cant stay mad at anyone, other than my family, for more than 10 minutes so if I'm still fucking mad at you it must be for a reason. I don't think I've ever felt this angry, sad and just fucking betrayed before. I guess it's got a lot to do with me being angry at myself for letting myself care that much about you and on top of that thinking that you might actually have ever cared about me. The only problem here with the above portrait of anger is that I still feel the exact fucking way about you as I did when we were going out and that pisses me off more than anyone could possibly comprehend.
See yuh

last night i stayed up talking 'til 2 am to a girl that i consider a really close friend of mine. she's so laid back that she is just friendly to everyone, and it's pretty cool because there's never any drama involved with her--we're just friends, that's it, we can hang out and laugh til we piss our pants but there's never any juicy steamy stuff (not between us anyway).

anyway so the past couple of weeks have been kind of weird, mostly because she's been really busy and stressed out, but i felt like i hadn't talked to her in ages; we're even in the same math class together. so we talked and talked and it was really good because we haven't just TALKED in ages.


i really like reconecting with old friends!

there wasn't any point to this, really, i just woke up from a nap (hey, sleeping at 2 am gets to ya) and i'm in the foggy stage when there is no way that i'll comprehend my spanish homework.

Words from my my mind:

"You deserve so much better than me... You deserve someone who could help you, someone who could be everything you need them to be and more... someone who could..."

I am Interrupted by Him.

"Could you Love me?"

"Because if you could love me than you'd be everything I need, and if you can love me than I'll fight to be everything for you as long as you'll let me, as long as I can."

~*~

When I learned that you could accept me for who I am, all my flaws and imperfections and everything that I have been and could be...

I fell. I fell so far into you I lost myself. I stopped worrying about you. I stopped thinking about the inadequacy of me.

FELL in LOVE with YOU.

To let go and not know if there's going to be someone to catch me, not knowing if we're plummeting to some unknown disaster, or be like children digging to china, falling all the way to some foreign land...

Falling so far that you know longer know if you're falling or flying, floating away on a dream that is so beautiful that you think your heart will breat with the beauty of it.

Wrapped in your arms, laughing and crying with all the time we've lost and all we have to gain... You carried me from the couch to the bed and we dreapt while we were awake...

No dream could be as beautiful as you.

I know we don't know. I know every day you could be taken away from me and every moment with you is precious...

~*~

Words from my HEART:

"I don't think I couldn't love you"

And I couldn't.

Here is Love....

I know we're falling, and it's the greatest freedom I've ever known.

tonight we have the opening night of our school play, "The Laramie Project".

and guess what? Fred Phelps (reportedly) and his congregation, the Westboro Baptist Church from Kansas is coming... to picket us. They're picketing like 9 churches (just in time for all the masses) and then picketing outside our school Saturday night and the Sunday matinee show.

Basically, they just want to get a rise out of people so that they can get into an argument (hopefully a physical one) and the people can sue us. That's how they get their money to do this.

What the fuck must be going on their heads? "God hates fags"; "God hates Jews"; "the gays caused hurricane katrina"... seriously, i'd like to ask the guy what the fuck is wrong with him, and without giving him a chance to preach any more religious crap to me (i've been approached by jehovah's witnesses three times this week) ... i'd like to knock him out cold.


but at the same time, i kind of just want to have a conversation with him, and see if he was like beaten as a child or something, and if that's what caused his ridiculous ideology.


i really hope our school doesn't make a spectacle of itself... i hope we become models to how the rest of the nation should be. I hope no one starts a fight, or eggs him, or anything. i hope we get the strength to walk by coolly (maybe make a snarky comment or two), and just ignore that fucker until he just goes home.

i can't go to a party and dance with one of my oldest guy friends, my first kiss, without some guy saying he's disappointed in how much i flirt with other guys.

But you...you dropped me like a used kleenex for her friendship, and now, where are you? Friendless, ugly, and overweight, failing your classes at some prep school for rich republicans. And I? I have friends, good ones who care about me and would never hurt me like you did. Even at the public school, I have done well, better than you. My future is bright.

I can't say I hate you, because somewhere inside of you is the girl I was friends with, the sensitive, beautiful girl who I idolized and would have followed anywhere. The girl who drove away the bullies, gave me her protection.

But I do pity you. I pity you, but more than that...

I feel like I'm a zit, and if anyone knows I'm here they'll pop me. I feel like a blemish on the face of society.

I am a girl. I like girls. Is there really something tremendously bad about that? If so please TELL ME WHY PLEASE!!! I truly want to know why society has pumped into me so much that sraight is the way to be that when I accept what makes me happy I feel like a pervert. Thinking about females makes me HAPPY, it's not like I'm thinking about raping young children.. so why does society give a damn!

Ok so I'm not in the social norm. Do you really think that I don't know that? Why does everyone have to rub it in my face? A majority of females think about malees when they have sexual fantasies. I diviate from this pattern. But 10% (studies say) of people are like me and deviate to, in the same way that I do. So it's not like it's an uncommon deviation or anything. IT MAKES ME HAPPY TO THINK ABOUT GIRLS. It may make you happy to think about the oppostie gender, do you want me to ruin YOUR happiness??

Please, please just think about it when you say "that is so gay" next time. Think of the person around you who is weeping inside because you are using their orientaion as an insult. Please.

A dentist could tell how stressed out I am by th condition of my cheeks and lips- the more stress I have, the more I bite, and suck on them to make them bleed.

I think it's so gross, but I just can't stop myself. Today I tried to go the whole day without picking or biting: I made it to third period. I need therapy, or something.

I don't want a relationship. I'm not ready for one and I probably won't be for a while. But I still find myself longing for that sense of physical intimacy. I want the broad chest to rest my head against while I'm curled up in his arms. Shoulders to lean on and rest my head against. A person I can go to when I'm upset and will just hug me and not ask questions I can't answer. Someone who accepts I'm a mess, can deal with it, and not really care.

I know how unfair that entire situation would be, but I can't help wanting it. I'm ashamed that I feel this way because I always thought that I was better than this. Apparently not.

You need a good guy in your life." He's always all over me in our classes... and teachers have told me we're a cute couple... the problem lies in the fact that we're not.

Another way my life sucks... There's this boy from another school who keeps trying to get with me... and so do a lot of other guys. And i'm not talking about in the relationship kind of way... i'm talking about every other way. Ew. Plus... I really only have eyes for one guy... the guy who is already taken by my friend.

so I was bored. This is what I did last sunday:

The house smelled like the elderly
which is the blunt way of saying it smelled
like mold, and mildew, and the dark earth, covered
lightly with a veil of potpourri and perfume. I entered
second to last, behind my grandmother and father and
grandfather and mother. my brother was behind me and
there were stiff, cold hugs and strained smiles of bodies who
had never met, before us--it was walking in to a wall.

the afternoon stretched on in bars of light that fell
through pink and purple curtains: how the dust motes
were silent and leaden. the words were punctured by
little holes of silence, the kind of hush that settles in a car
when passing by a graveyard and the children hold their breaths.
the hush as she tells us how her daughter died last spring
she was making pancakes as her the aneurism hit her brain . . . the little
boy woke up to find them burning on the oven.

the old woman, my grandmother’s friend, not seen
and out of mind for these 50 years. her eyes were strong, so
strong that I could not tell if the cancer was in her lungs
or if it hung in the air; the cause of it? her radiation. her presence.
I dare anything to come for her. I dare anyone to speak down upon
the human race.

she wrapped her husband in a quilt, a soft bed. she kissed him as he
died! that is to say . . .
he was hit by a car, and she was trained in mouth-to-mouth—
not very well. he was dead before the ambulance arrived. the quilt she
laid him in was
colorful?
large?
warm and just right
or maybe just covered in flowers. yes, the flowers of all 50 states
richly embroidered and she had been offered Six Thousand and
Three Hundred Dollars for it, and it had won First Place at the fair.
Such a bouquet will not fade. Is that a moth’s wing falling to the floor.
We will have to buy more mothballs. We shall have to stay and eat.

lights out

Fear

Lost

His hand finds mind

We move

closer

Hearts pound

Arms wrap around

Eyes close

Want

lust

warm breath

hands glide up and down back

lie down

sweat

touch

bite

kiss

on top

moving slowly

then faster

speeding

quickly, panting, moaning,

SCREAMING, gasp, sigh

silence

whisper

“Don’t worry…I won’t tell her.”

Breathe

Together

Hearts beat as one

Sweaty palms

Looking into his eyes

knowing what i want

CRAVING

Longing to be held

he does it

Waiting

Silence

Darkness

I wish i was her

I hate you two together. It's fucking annoying. I want your relationship to crash and burn. I want it to go to hell. Yeah, you're "perfect for eachother," whatever. What fucking ever. I miss you being a best friend and I miss him being a good guy friend. The only time I can talk to you now is when you're alone since you turn into an octopus around him.
Fuck you. This is a general consensus. Everyone thinks this- I know since we talked about you when you wandered away with him.
Ugh. Now I have to go be nice to your face.

Remember this guy?

"I'm the guy that most girls look for, I know this because they tell me. I can make them laugh and cheer them up and be there when they are most in need. The only thing is IM POOR! not just a little, ALOT. I live with my mom and she doesnt work, so I work to pay partial rent for our place. Its so embarassing, that I dont tell anyone where I live or what I do after school.
I never get close to a girl ever and have her find out how pathetic my life is, so ive never had a gf because of that.

If you were in my situation what would you do?
"

That was me, ever since the day I posted that, i got so much positive feedback from you guys, that I finally got the never to ask out the girl that I really liked, and turned out she really liked me too, and all the other stuff really doesnt matter. I am the happiest guy on earth tonight, because we kissed for the first time. I never thought tangst would help me fix anything, but it really did. Thank you, so much!

I feel a sense of impending doom daily now. I am a teenage girl and I don't believe I will live to be really old. I feel like I will get in a bad car wreck and possibly die or will be murdered. How many others sense this?

I didn't really know him very well. Our AP Bio class only has 12 people in it, though, so I did know him even if only as an acquaintance.
He moved here this past summer, from a nearby school district but he was born in South Carolina.
I was the first person to say hey, and find out his name, the first person to reach out and be his friend instead of treating him as the "new kid" (i know what it's like to move and know no one)... at least in our class. He was so courteous and nice--from the very beginning, I noticed that he was a gentleman and so tranquil, calm and gentle in his manners. There are so many little things about him that you wouldn't expect people to remember... but lately, they keep surfacing.

On Tuesday night he was driving back from Ames, from his girlfriend's volleyball game, and was hit by a drunk driver (37) who was on the wrong side of the interstate--he swerved back and forth between the median before hitting his car head-on. His car was spun around and then hit by a 70 year old couple from the back. He was prounounced dead at the scene. He was a senior.

He was taking four college level classes, and working 30 hour weeks at Toys R Us, to support his family. His dad, a pastor, had recently been let go. He had twin brothers in ninth grade, a younger sister in junior high, and a brother in fourth grade.
Not many people knew him because he was new, but the people who did were truly affected by his kind, considerate, and huge heart.

I never knew him well, barely as an acquaintance. He went out of his way to say hello to me in the hallway, and always had a smile on his face--even with the pain of a broken ankle (and crutches).

I'm sorry, Jon. You were loved. I hope you're at peace.

I hope you never come back. You suck. Call me if you want me--'cause I'm not paying you anymore mind.

This year is inconsiderate, considering I've actually bothered to consider a relationship with someone and can't find the time to do anything about it.
I don't feel any of the stuff taking up my time has a point either. It's just keeping me here a little longer 'fore I go off.

I met what seemed to be the most absolutely perfect guy over the weekend. The chemistry was instantanious, we just kind of clicked together. We spent 90% of the weekend together flirting and he initiated all of the relationship-ish stuff that happened between us. HE kissed me first. HE held my hand first. HE put his arm around me.
I went pretty far with him over the weekend- the furthest I've ever been with a guy.
The next day he told me that he was extremely confused about his actions over the weekend and that, while he "liked me", he wanted our relationship to be real but deep down inside he knew his feelings were false because he's gay. He stopped talking to me and kind of drifted away.

I'm still in the "Wait... What?" phase and I've been tearing myself up over it ever since.

Guys are dumb.

there's this guy that sits next to me in one of my classes, and he's pretty cute... the whole school year we've had this friendly flirting-joking sort of relationship... and i know he has a girlfriend, but he doesn't really talk about her that much. and hes SO nice, and just a wonderful guy. well just today i realized that he kind of might be into me and that he isn't necessarily joking around... he actually is flirting.
and then he was talking about how he got out of this meeting early so he went to go hang out with his gf and i asked what they did, and then said "wait do i not wanna know?" and he said,
"oh no, we didn't do anything. we never do. yeah, the relationship's pretty lame."

and then continued to flirt with me.

what do i DO? what does this MEAN?!?!
ahhhhhhh.
