Bittersweet
You're gonna be the death of me
I don't want you but I need you
I love you and hate you at the very same time
Bittersweet

See what I want so much, should never hurt this bad
Never did this before, that's what the virgin says
We've been generally warned, that's what the surgeon says
God talk to me now, this is an emergency

And she claim she only wit' me for the currency
You cut me deep, bitch, cut me like surgery
And I was too proud to admit that it was hurtin' me
I'd never do that to you, at least purposely

We breakin' up again
We makin' up again
But we don't love no more
I guess we fuckin' then

Have you ever felt you ever want to kill her?
And you mix them emotions with tequilla
And you mix that wit' a little bad advice
On one of them bad nights, y'all have a bad fight
And you talkin' 'bout her family, her aunts and shit
And she say, muhfucka, yo mama's a bitch

You know, domestic drama and shit, all the attitude
I'll never hit a girl, but I'll shake the shit outta you
But I'ma be the bigger man, big pimpin' like jigga man
Oh, I guess I figure it's

Bittersweet
You're gonna be the death of me
I don't want you but I need you
I love you and hate you at the very same time
Bittersweet

See what I want so much, should never hurt this bad
Never did this before, that's what the virgin says
We've been generally warned, that's what the surgeon says
God talk to me now, this is an emergency

And my nigga said I shouldn't let it worry me
I need to focus on the girls we gettin' currently
But I've been thinkin' and it got me back to sinkin' in
This relationship, it even got me back to drinkin'

Now this Hennessey, is gonna' be the death of me
And I always thought that you havin' my child was our destiny
But I can't even vibe wit you sexually
'Cause every time that I try you will question me.

Saying, you…...

Writing Compoaition

...considering I then made new friends in the united states as well. Writing my loved ones from Iraq was just the tip of the ice burg when it came to a writing experience during my time in service for the U.S. Army . Even though writing my loved ones from a distant place was heartwarming, writing anything in the military can be bittersweet. One of the more bitter parts of any writing experience I ever had was my first essay assignment due to punishment. Early in my military career I was far beyond a perfect soldier, I was constantly in trouble and my superiors used various tools to straighten my weaker qualities” as a soldier. For example; Writing disciplinary essays ranged anywhere from one thousand words per essay to nine thousand words. Many different variables were used such as; which sergeant assigned the essay, or how in the wrong the act was to deserve such an essay in the first place. All the experiences throughout my life are not claimed as typical, but they have played a significant role in my life. They have ranged from learning tools to help me learn a second language, and have also been a tool for punishment. These experiences are again, bittersweet, but I would not have them any other way. Even though this is only a handful of involvements in my writing, I know there are a lot more to arise throughout my life as a soldier, a man, a husband, and even more importantly as a father....

ALEXANDER BECAME KING IN 336 B.C. WHEN PHILLIP WAS ASSASSINATED. HE MAINTAINED HIS RULE AT HOME BEFORE MAKING ANY PLANS OF ATTACK. First he attacked Thessaly in order to restore Macedonian rule. Then in 335 B.C. he defeated the Thracians, up through the Danube River. On his way back, he defeated the Illyrians, but rushed back afterwards to Thebes. Thebes was ravaged by Alexander, sparing only temples and the house of Pindar, a well known Greek poet of the 5th Century B.C. Many more Greek states then turned to Alexander's control. Alexander declared war on Persia in 334 B.C., and defeated a Persian army near the city of Troy. This resulted in the submission of all states in Asia Minor to him.

Chocolate and Healthy

...chocolate taste than milk chocolate, because it does not contain milk solids to compete with the chocolate taste. However, the lack of milk additives also means that dark chocolate is more prone to a dry, chalky texture and a bitter aftertaste.

Dark chocolate is often distinguished by the percentage of cocoa solids in the bar. The cocoa content of commercial dark chocolate bars can range from 30% (sweet dark) to 70%, 75%, or even above 80% for extremely dark bars. Common terms used to distinguish the cocoa content of dark chocolate bars include bittersweet, semi-sweet, and sweet dark chocolate.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

...In the poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” Robert Frost uses symbolism to develop the passage. Frost uses many symbols in the poem such as gold. The gold is used to symbolize the richness, valuableness, and worthiness of nature. In the first stanza, “Nature’s first green is gold” means that spring, which is considered “nature’s first green” is very precious and valuable to people because in spring everything grows, turns green, and becomes new again. Another example from the poem that shows gold as a symbol is “Nothing gold can stay.” The speaker means that the newness and youth of nature does not stay forever. This is quite disappointing and bittersweet because the speaker is implying that everything of value in life somehow fades away eventually. After spring and summer are over, fall and winter return once more. Winter, which is the opposite of spring and summer, represents death and gloominess. Finally, Eden is a symbol that Frost uses to develop and establish the passage further. In the sixth and seventh line of the poem, the speaker says “So Eden sank to grief/ so dawn goes down to day”. Eden symbolizes the Garden of Eden where everything is perfect and pleasant for Adam and Eve until they eat an apple off of the only tree they weren’t supposed to. This also shows that nothing pleasant and/or perfect in life will stay forever, just like the “gold” in life. Robert Frost uses symbols in this poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” to represent how many precious things in life don’t stay...

Mothers

...Essay “Where are you going daddy?” I seemed to recall when he stepped through the door. Leaving behind a bittersweet reminder as I held the pastry in tiny palms, my world was torn asunder that afternoon. From that moment, the recognitions from childhood to adulthood encompassed my mother. The outcome of my father’s absence was a tightened clutch on my mommy’s sleeve when I was a little girl. Flooding emotions swayed by her gentle words of comfort blossomed into adoration for my mother’s accomplishments and determination in the face of adversity. These reflections shall merit my opinion that women play a greater role in raising children in society than men ever could. The first experience to verify my presumption was the first day of elementary school. Children clung to their father’s as though they were their foundations. My mother’s hand was tender, like she was cradling me in her palm. When she guided me through the door of the classroom, I recall her gentle words of encouragement were very different from the stern unmoving speeches by my classmate’s fathers’. A father’s lesson was spoken like a lieutenant to a trainee soldier. I always despised their methods and saw them as intimidating. Yet, when the moments came of moral and ethics, my mother told me stories and fables. They were scriptures of fantasy and folk-lore that still etched a lesson of life into my thoughts. My best friend would tell me that her father was a “magic man”, who would......

Response to the Sniper by Liam O’flaherty

...this story, he battles his various characters, including his own brother. In the resolution, he ends up killing his own brother without knowing his true identity. The theme in “The Sniper” is that war knows no boundaries as it will reduce human beings to mere targets and destroy all identities. This is shown through the characters, the plot, the mood, and the setting. The first key factor in determining the theme is the setting of the story. The story took place in Dublin, Ireland during the Civil War. This setting is incredibly important, as it is the main component of theme. Without the war as the setting, war cannot be shown and the theme wouldn’t be shown. The setting correlates with the mood as it creates an intense, yet heavy and bittersweet mood. This raises suspense and builds up till the climax. This greatly impacts the theme as the author wants the readers to live through the story as if they were the main character. From the very beginning, to the very end, no names of characters are mentioned. Instead, the author chooses to reference to people using general words such as “the sniper,” “the old woman,” or “the man.” This detail about the story is incredibly important because the author is trying to emphasize that war has destroyed the identities of people. A key factor in an identity is the name of person, if a person has lost their name, they have lost who they are. This is similar to the book, “Les Misérables.” Both the authors have show that people have lost......

Description

...In front of me on the table sat a beautiful pure white bowl, simplistic in design, hiding a decadent surprise inside. In the bowl was hidden something that was not so pure; however, the irresistible indulgence was worth every calorie that I knew it contained. As I looked inside, I saw on the bottom of the bowl a hot, tender brownie loaded with macadamia nuts. I knew from past experience that the nuts had a creamy and smooth texture, almost like white chocolate. On top of the brownie were two firmly packed scoops of ice cream, laying side by side, each one a different flavor. The scoop on the right was a rich vanilla, flecked with dark specks of vanilla bean. The scoop on the left was a dark, smooth, bittersweet chocolate. The scoops were just starting to melt tiny rivulets of melted cream down the sides of the hot brownie, pooling on the bottom of the pure white bowl. These scoops of ice cream were draped with a sumptuous, rich, hot fudge sauce. Topping the luscious sauce was an ample dollop of whipped cream that was in perfect contrast to the dense, almost too rich dessert below. The whipped cream was topped with a shower of chocolate sprinkles and finely chopped walnuts. What finally completed this wonderful creation was a perfect maraschino cherry, its red juice sending tiny streams down the whole mountain of dessert delight. The contrast of colors, textures and flavors in this dessert appealed to every part of my senses. I could not wait to eat it....
