  1. On Old Exes, New Hopes, and Moving On

    I still look for her laughing in the crowds But I can no longer find her The way I used to She's the first laugh I look for, After all this time. But He walked in And she was no longer my first laugh He was my jaw dropping My hand hurriedly extending- Reaching not for his ticket, But his heart. He reached for me And we danced the night away Eyes opened wide Memorizing every detail Lest the world rips us away too soon And we find ourselves blind. She is no longer my first laugh- He is my new hope My ticket to moving on God, his smile His root beer Dum-Dum eyes That razor sharp jaw. Please, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Apollo, Director and playwright, Please don't let these curtains close just yet- Our story has just begun.
  2. Looking ahead/Checking in

    I'm really gonna miss the print editions...Will we still be able to order older editions in print?
  3. That "Wonderful" Time of Year Again

    The days are getting shorter, And so is my temper. Nights are getting longer and darker, My mind keeps me up for every second The exhaustion is getting to my head and grades And my heart pounds against my binder as my anxiety soars. Author's note: Ugh, seasonal depression...
  4. Modern Day Albert Cashier

    I can be a modern day Albert Cashier Fighting for myself and my Brothers In Arms Mile after mile, day after day I can be a Bullet In a Gun Pull my trigger and watch me fly If he can take lead bullets flying while hiding His chest without a binder I can wait a few more years My Brothers in Arms- We'll survive and thrive We'll be our Perfect Home. I'll be a modern day Albert Cashier Be a self made man and fight for my body Be a Bullet In a Gun. Author's note: Not my best, but fell in love with The Civility of Albert Cashier and had to write this. Y'all should check out the soundtrack (at least, what songs they've put out)
  5. Nathaniel's Last Bow (Still in progress)

    Here was (is?) a man who walked among the stars of Broadway A man who sprinkled us in pixie dust and taught us to soar Lit a burning, glowing spark in our singing hearts But now his show is over The curtain is calling His ovation Awaits Author's note: So, this is to my director who is leaving...Still a work in progress.
  6. Not This Shit Again (Always Unwanted)

    Normally I'm happy When my voice deepens But this time, It's because I'm trying not to cry. Because when they said no, I was transported back to elementary school, Middle school, even, To the reason why I hate group projects. Because every time, No matter how many friends I had, They all decided I wasn't good enough. I wasn't smart enough, Wasn't popular enough, Just wasn't enough. So now I'm sitting here, stressing about this group project I have to do Without a group. Author's note: Sorry this isn't of my usual quality. It's been a rough day.
  7. Happy by Day, Shattered by Night

    Wow, this is powerful! I love it!
  8. The Tree and I

    This is one of the most beautiful pieces I've read here on the slam. Fantastic job!
  9. intro things :D

    I'm Marshall. I've been here for-Jesus Christ has it really been almost 4 years? Wow. I'm a pansexual demiboy (There's a whole nother mess of labels but those are in my bio if you're really curious) and I've grown up here. I'm such a sucker for music in general I'm really not very picky. It's so awesome to finally meet you outside of reading all your stuff!
  10. A Lost Boy's Christmas List

    A Bucket of coins to sort through (Money for my transition) A set of dumbbells (Biceps pumped full of testosterone) Leather bi fold wallet (I know you're gonna botch this up with a feminine wallet and southern ideals) Andele or Spitfire skateboard bearings (fast, like the hate rolling off your tongues) Vans and Hollister gift cards (God knows you'd get me dresses) Broadway merch and tickets (My voice is heard somewhere) Gameboy color pokemon yellow (At least Professor Oak knows I'm a boy) Leather dress belt (Bound to gender roles) Plague for PC (Because at least being trans isn't a disease)

  14. Sometimes We Don't Get To Say Goodbye

    I logged on yesterday To find the update was in progress I never got to say goodbye to the old Slam The yellow and maroon so simplistic So homely and warm Sometimes we just don't get to say goodbye.
  15. I don't know enough about this update to have any judgement on it yet, but I am feeling just a little nostalgic for the old format.
