It's Just a Prank
It was six years ago, another year of tryouts. I was that kid who would try out for everything, but never made it to anything. One day people were talking so loudly I couldn't hear the announcements, but I heard something about volleyball.
Some other guys in my class told me it was guys tryouts today, so I went down to the gym at lunch.
The gym was full of girls.
I ran out before anyone noticed me and confronted those assholes who had tricked me. "It's just a prank, Relax bro." They said. At least along those lines.
I tried to shrug it off. Eventually I did. It had happened before, it was all the same. Another 15 minutes of misfortune. No need to tell the parents. To cry for help. Nobody would even remember.
Since then, not much has changed. Sure, the sharks of the playground get stuck the dry land of reality, and I've always found my way out of whatever ditch I'd fall into next.
But predators find new prey, and when I'm gone, who's next? Kids today are still getting picked on. Pushed

I've Never had a Crush before
I've Never had a Crush before,
Let alone been in love.
I've never had a long walk along the beach with someone,
Or went out to the movie theater to see some lame romcom.
But Romance is far from not being my subject of choice in my writing.
I've always had a love for love.
It was a great drive for characters in stories,
Or even an overall basis in one.
And I'm not going to act as if I haven't gushed over seeing my favorite pairing come true.
I have, and I'm not gonna lie,
It felt awesome.
I remember yelling, 'I called it!' from the rooftops.
And even out of the pages of my writing or the screens of the TV,
I've appreciated the romantic.
One time, I paired my best friend up with a really artsy girl we knew,
and to this day they're still dating.
This is who I am.
The King of Third Wheels.
Your old spare pair of shoes.
But sometimes I wonder if I'll ever find that person that's right for me.
I used to wonder as a kid who my wife would be.
People used to tell me that I'll never find what I'

Little Candle Light
Little Candle Light
So small yet so much potential
With a simple spark, you bring light
You bring warmth
You bring comfort
But as you burn,
The wax that keeps you up melts
And the string that kindles your life
It falls away to keep you here
And what if you fall?
Fall off that stand you sit upon?
You spread
Growing larger
Bolder
More ferocious
That warmth you gave off becomes hot
A Flame
It Burns Golden as you continue to spread
Be careful, Little Candle Light
You can now destroy
But it doesn't have to be that way
Remember the warmth you give off
Continue to comfort
It was what you were made to do
Because if all you do is Burn
Burn it all up
Soon there will be nothing left to keep you ablaze
Know you limits
Remember your spark
Little Candle Light

The Day I Lost You
The Day I lost you
Ten Months ago, I forgot our anniversary
It was a Summer Day
You hadn't said much in the morning
Nine Months ago, you lost your job
You didn't want to go outside anymore
All you wanted to do was think
Eight Months ago, you lost your Mom
I Tried to pay the bills
They couldn't save her
Seven Months ago, you crashed your Car
No charges were laid
You were never the same
Six Months ago, you were sued
I told you I would pay for it
But money doesn't grow on trees
Five Months ago, we lost our home
I didn't know what we were going to do
The world was crumbling around us
Four Months ago, you made a promise
You said everything was going to be alright
I believed you
Three Months ago, you came home late that night
You told me you took care of everything
Then I heard the sirens
Two Months ago, I visited you
You said that I should be proud of you
That you had done the right thing
One Month ago, was the last time I visited you
I was Summer Day
The Day I Lost you

It was six years ago, another year of tryouts. I was that kid who would try out for everything, but never made it to anything. One day people were talking so loudly I couldn't hear the announcements, but I heard something about volleyball.

Some other guys in my class told me it was guys tryouts today, so I went down to the gym at lunch.
The gym was full of girls.

I ran out before anyone noticed me and confronted those assholes who had tricked me. "It's just a prank, Relax bro." They said. At least along those lines.

I tried to shrug it off. Eventually I did. It had happened before, it was all the same. Another 15 minutes of misfortune. No need to tell the parents. To cry for help. Nobody would even remember.

Since then, not much has changed. Sure, the sharks of the playground get stuck the dry land of reality, and I've always found my way out of whatever ditch I'd fall into next.

But predators find new prey, and when I'm gone, who's next? Kids today are still getting picked on. Pushed against fences that begin to feel like razors. Name after name being shot out like a bullet through the heart as we try to remember why we said that stupid rhyme in the first place.

People used to ask me why I sat alone at lunch, and I could never get out that I was excluded as I choked down on the words bullies wanted me to say. Even bullies are scared of something. But if you are the fuel to their weakness then you're a pretty easy flame to snuff. Because how can you speak when you're having an attack of whatever illness you may have, or having a hard time going outside when someone's stolen your pants.

Bullies are smart that way. They know when to use force, and when to use trickery. But equally ruthless. "It's just a prank," they would always say. Every time.

I remember reading "Lord of the Flies" one year in Grade 10. It's a bittersweet little tale about some proper British boys stuck on Island who have to survive. Over time, the good nature they had slowly slips away, eventually the boys being so savage and evil, they could be unrecognizable. Understandably the story wasn't taken well by some of the class. But I couldn't help but laugh.

Whenever I hear people rebuke the old saying, "Kids can be cruel," I'm inclined to say otherwise. Cause as much as I hate it, they can be. Because as broken bones, broken hearts don't do the same so easily. And was wounds can long be forgotten, their scars stay with us as a reminder. Our bodies weren't the only things they tainted, but our minds and our spirit.

And to the kids who may hear this. As you chant "It's just prank" on rewind for the countless numbers of times you do, think about it when I say "Is it really?"

For what joke is to be found when there's nobody left laughing with you?
It's Just a Prank
edit: So for some reason the context I put down here disappeared, so I'll just type it again.


Happy Pink-Shirt day! (Or whenever this gets posted)
Today is Bullying Awareness Day, but it seems not many people realize that.
Earlier today my brother told me that a few kids in his grade were picking on a smaller kid.
I just won't end, will it?
I can't do much, but at least I write.


edit: Also noticed some glaring mistakes in the poem so I fixed those.

I've Never had a Crush before,
Let alone been in love.
I've never had a long walk along the beach with someone,
Or went out to the movie theater to see some lame romcom.

But Romance is far from not being my subject of choice in my writing.
I've always had a love for love.
It was a great drive for characters in stories,
Or even an overall basis in one.

And I'm not going to act as if I haven't gushed over seeing my favorite pairing come true.
I have, and I'm not gonna lie,
It felt awesome.
I remember yelling, 'I called it!' from the rooftops.

And even out of the pages of my writing or the screens of the TV,
I've appreciated the romantic.
One time, I paired my best friend up with a really artsy girl we knew,
and to this day they're still dating.

This is who I am.
The King of Third Wheels.
Your old spare pair of shoes.
But sometimes I wonder if I'll ever find that person that's right for me.

I used to wonder as a kid who my wife would be.
People used to tell me that I'll never find what I'm looking for without trying,
that 'The first love is never the last love.'
That I must feel heartbreak before feeling my heart beat out of my chest.

But I've never felt my heart even flutter a little bit,
Let alone beat out of my chest.
Now I don't simply want a relationship for simply having a relationship.
From what I hear those never end well.

But I'm scared,
Scared that if I tell them 'I love you,' they won't respond the same way.
Or if I open my heart to someone just so they can stomp on it.
I'm scared.

But there should be no fear in love.
To fear is to mistrust,
And mistrust is to doubt,
And I don't want to doubt my love.

So I sang the blues to the tune of romance,
As I watched the smiles people had turn to tears,
The sun became stars as they come and go.
'Love never lasts forever,' they said.

I feel much older than I really am.
I don't know much about love,
But I want to.
But would I be good enough?

I'm still scared.
Like great empires falling,
I've seen loved ones become strangers.
I'm terrified of loving someone.

But through the future pain,
We learn and grow.
I've seen the world of Romance,
And yet now nothing at all.

I've Never had a Crush before,
Let alone been in love.
I have yet to know heartbreak,
When all comes undone.

But one day,
I hope to know both.
I've Never had a Crush before
Happy Valentine's Day! Love 
Or Happy Single's Appreciation Day to those who celebrate it today.Clap 
Coming from a single guy, it's honestly kinda funny how put into an acronym it spells S.A.D.La la la la 
Anyway, hope you guys like it.







PS. It's all true...

I'm stressed. I have exams coming up real soon. Waaaah!

Hey look at that, a post. And it's not even a s****y quote.
Horray for poetry. Wink/Razz 


edit: I just realized I made a glaring mistake with the second stanza. S***.

Goddammit! I feel like s***! Okay, listen, I haven't checked my Deviantart in a while. Like, a couple of days. But today when I went onto my page, find that I have 202 page views. To most people that's nothing, but to me that's pretty epic! Clap  I didn't think I would get 1 page view, let alone a little over 200! So I celebrate by putting in a Status commemorating me getting 200 page views, like the naive little c*** that I am.

200 Page Views by JoeTheCynic

Hell yeah, Awesome, right? 10/10. I am a dummy!  Then I go check my notifications to see what arts been released by some of the people I have on my watch list. I see :iconkilalaaa: kilalaaa has some stuff up, so I check her page.

And I find this.

Me on the Computer 2 by JoeTheCynic



What?! Goddammit! 9 million?! 9 f***ing million page views!!! Rage I get excited for one f***ing minute, and I get shot down! CURSE YOU! 
What the hell! I get excited about 200 page views, and she's excited by about 45 000 times that! (Math Nerd Meow :3 )
The hell! Why can't I have nice things? Really, why can't I have nice things.

It's f***ing Youtube all over again. I got a video online somewhere of a younger me dancing like an idiot to Moves Like Jagger while playing Just Dance, with my squeaky little voice, but it's only got like 90 views. I thought that would get me up to like, Shane Dawson level. I would've used the money I got from the video to buy a new table. Well, to be fair, flipping a glass table may not have been such a bright idea. Oops! 

I mean, maybe it's because I don't really to Visual forms of art. I have a few posts, but most of my work are Lame ass quotes and Bad Poetry. While the most well known Painters, Drawers, or Graphic Artists are really well known, guys who do Literature are mostly invisible. Just try looking up Deviant Artists, whose main focus is Literature. Go on. Try it. I can wait. :| (Blank Stare) 



Waiting by JoeTheCynic



You can't find too many can you, or none at all for some. For the ones that you do find, it's either it's just a side thing for them or they use it to help explain something with their Art. I guess there are better sites dedicated to writings, but sometimes I feel that the writers and poets are underappreciated. But then I think about how little interest people have had in reading nowadays. It kinda makes sense. :o (Eek)  I mean, it's sad, yes, but I think we can appreciate it even more when people do come around and see our stuff. When they do, it feels f***ing awesome.:happybounce:  I end up feeling like Goddamn Shakespeare when people see the s*** I make. Now I kinda get why Kanye fells that way.



I'm Shakespeare by JoeTheCynic



But in all seriousness, right, I'm very happy for kilala getting people to go onto her page 9 million times, cause she deserves it. She's awesome. La la la la  Sure, it probably isn't exactly 9 million people who go on her page, but she got people to revisit it enough to reach 9 million. Including me! The little bitch who's making a nonsensical, satirical rant about how he only has 200 page views. People probably won't even see this. But I'm making it anyway, because, why the f*** not. I'm surprised you even got this far. But anyways, Hope you have a lovely day now. Giggle 



P.S. To kilala, if you do see this which is f***ing unlikely; Hell of a Job with Dove in recent posts. She's my favourite (spelled like this because I'm from Canada) of your OCs, and seeing the new posts literally made my day, even more than the 200 Page views. As a Writer, I love how Dove gets this bit of character development, plus added world building. However, this can be a Bane or Boon, as we all know how the fandom reacts to both of those things from the Twilicorn incident   the Alicorn Baby events that have happened from the show.Wink/Razz Excited to see what happens next anyway.
