with collarbones that jut out like angel's wings
and a wobbly smile that fails to balance—
you have the saddest eyes i have ever seen,
as though you truly believe that
everyone simply looks right through you.
but i don't, and i can see:
i see you shivering in the roasting heat
while the girls around us fan themselves;
i see you measuring your life not in goals achieved
but in the visible number of vertebra that march down your back;
i see you hiding in the bathroom stalls after a bite of a muffin
to empty yourself until the air vibrates with humming alarm.
i see you in your entirety,
much more clearly than you ever could
so believe me
when i say you are already beautiful,
and that the only thing
i would change at all
would be the way you see yourself.

It was night, and the moon was about to crash for like the millionth time because Link keeps dicking with the time and wanting to score with ugly chicks over and over, while everyone else is just like "oH NUUUUUU THE MOON BRO"
Twas the perfect night for BEN to confess his love to that sexy ass moon. Just thinking about those hella scary eyes and that giant ass mouth made BEN's vagina penis harden like the Stone Tower Temple. (ooooh see what I did there)
He walked up the steps of the Clock Tower and gazed upon the moon, which was eerily creeping closer to Termina.

Every word that uncontrollably
festers and functions
the making of my reality.
First and foremost,
the most thorn-full regret
of hurting someone
just because I NEED
to break fragile things
when I know I can.
Driven to snap the arms
off discarded toys.
Breaking what was once valued.
Second and most painful,
living with the knowledge
that BEING in love
who doesn't love me back
a self-created Hell.
the flaming thistles
into me intimately scarring
a little deeper.
a daily exercise. Without aim
and out of control.
I want the world to hurt
as much as I do.
Third the breakdown of this state of being.
I crave being used.
I know it's not real, but faux love
is better than none at all
when every desired touch
is like yesterdays candy.
Sweet nothings. Junk.
Throw me out like a wrapper.
A shiny distraction
for a moment.

Have you ever felt how it was to love a blonde male with blue eyes? A smart, handsome and a sweet one. That would always smile at you and help you with everything you needed?
Of course you did. You were madly in love with Armin Arlert.
He didn't get in the top 10 like some males. The others were attractive, brave and strong. Everything a female may need, yes? Well, Armin had something different in him.
You would always act before you would think, you were emotionally driven, impulsive, extroverted, and prone to extreme highs and lows. His calm personality could help keep you grounded. He was all you needed! And you would also be a help to him, you were also good at picking out the positive traits of people, so you would boost his self-esteem in return!
You two were meant to be, but the blonde didn't really understand that...

“Finally, it’s the weekend!” the first spoke with glee. She possessed short, dark hair worn in a somewhat unkempt manner, a black dress and a red cloak with a hood. She seemed to be full of barely restrained energy, constantly twitching as she kept her pace slow to walk alongside her friends.
“This week sure dragged on didn’t it?” the second girl spoke. She possessed a head of long, wavy golden locks and stood much taller than the others. She possessed a curvy figure with strong, toned muscle. As she walked she stretched herself, attempting to rid herself of stiffness after the rather long class. Next to her, a white haired girl pouted.

God's PaintbrushI've learned that God's paintbrush is incredibly flawed,God's Paintbrush6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
with lashes picked at, and bristles torn nearly off.
I don't think everybody likes what God paints,
because we're always trying to smear it away.
We cut off a few pounds, or cut up some skin,
when we soil the paper, we throw it in the trash bin.
I think His paper has been sauntered with tears,
or blood, and vulgar language from our peers.
Like others have taken His brush and dipped it in oil,
and have painted themselves, in a way that's soiled.
I knew that God's paintbrush was incredibly flawed,
but that doesn't mean that we should change it at all.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” they say,
perhaps it would be better to keep it that way.
I'm incredibly certain that God makes no mistake,
I think that we do, when we try to be fake.
When we take His art into our own hands,
and when we ruin the strokes that He carefully commands.
I don't really think that God wants us to be perfect,
if so, then He wouldn't take th

Vivi glanced over to him to make sure he wasn’t going to choke to death from her search in her library, eye-lids half closed. “Aw come on, Art’! Don’t tell me you seriously thought the Mystery Skulls were dead for good!”
“Well, from happened last time… yes!” He almost couldn’t believe what Vivi was proposing, shaking his head in denial. He sat on the couch in Vivi’s living room this Saturday afternoon, watching her scan her giant book shelf for anything on ghosts, which were very many books. Lewis sat on the other side of the couch, sitting in a proper pose while his jacket was neatly folded between them, showing off his purple vest and undershirt once more. Mystery sat on a different seat completely, unnerved by Vivi’s idea as well.
Arthur turned to Lewis, gesturing a hand.

Adachi groaned as he raised from the stiff and decidedly uncomfortable bed, massaging his temples. The pounding in his brain made him feel like he was tangoing with the worst hangover of his life, but he knew that wasn't true. He never had drink in months, especially not since he was incarcerated. He supposed he only slept on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
But then, this was a prison bed, every side was wrong for God knew so many reasons.
The scourge of Inaba pinched the bridge of his nose, focused on the accumulative headache festering in his skull like a cancer, took a deep breath... and counted to three.

Jack was not a little Kit anymore, in fact he was getting rather big, and heavy, Quinn knew that he couldn't carry him all the time. Jack didn't really like walking, and he cried for his mother the first few days, but by the time they'd been traveling for a week he was mostly walking with only a couple of lifts and had stopped sniffing.
"Where are we going?" He asked, looking up at his grandfather with a nervous sense of curiosity, a worried look that reflected what was actually happening, that in truth Quinn had no idea.
They were both hungry, neither of them really knew how to hunt, particularly with collars on, so one of their first points of call was chewing them off each other.
They were now no more than common Street Cats, even if they were mostly walking through fields rather than streets, they had no owners and for a House Cat there couldn't be anything worse.
So Quinn didn't reply when his grandson asked the question, and Jack didn't ask ag

Instead, he set on his window seat and watched you out the window. You had a flower crown in your hair as you walked around with your friends. He sighed longingly. Even though he was the prince, he knew you wouldn’t give him the time of day. You were too beautiful for him, too perfect.
“Brother, what are you doing?” Thor asked. Loki jumped then and glared at his brother.
“Have you ever heard of knocking?” Loki hissed.
“I did.” Thor said. “I do have manners.” Loki snorted.

Every color is a dulled version of its former glory. The blues are dark, filled between grays and blacks.
Greens that are dead and no longer life-filled blend into the background with the reds that hold no vibrancy to their name.
Purples are controlled down to a plum hue from their original violent violet.
Yet, here I walk; my legs cloaked in blazing green, my feet encased in gold. My chest peaks peach in between the sky blue that covers my breast and arms.
And when I climb the stairs, I see evidence of others like me.
A plethora of painted yellows, warm with buttery light, proudly gleamed in the afternoon sun.
Blinding orange, bright against the blacks that haunt like shadows at the edges.
White is a common theme as a girl runs by, almost like a bride late for her wedding in appearance.
As I walk, even soulful browns make their own appearances, always accompanied by grass greens and brilliant pinks.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, we’ve had a recap episode. The bane of many anime fans and the quick way out for animators to save a bit of money. I was initially annoyed by this, but doing some research I later found out that this was down to Nickelodeon slashing down funding of one episodes amount.
So once again we have Nickelodeon to blame for this shows problems...on three children. One, two, three:

Lifting her head, Rose shuffled uncertainly in her basket where her three Kittens were curled up against her. They were getting quite big now and she was hoping that her owners would be buying them baskets of their own soon.
The largest of her Kittens, a tom called James, clambered out of the basket, giving her a little more space to stretch out her paws and begin to wake the others.
Jack took the longest to wake up, he was her youngest, but he was still bigger than his sister Snowflake, her owners had told her that overall she'd had a very healthy litter.
It had been quite tough considering the father of her Kittens lived many miles away, so far away that when she'd met him she'd been driven there in the Car, but her father had always been there to lend a paw, she was grateful for that.
There was more noise in the house than usual, the sounds of children's feet and mews running through the house.
