Words Are Powerful ThingsYou’re so angryWords Are Powerful Things1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
You let words swarm up inside.
Screaming to get out.
They yell and shout.
They sit there,
Turning into horrid things that should never be even whispered,
In the softest tone.
You get so angry
Cause you’re so afraid.
Like so many other people
You let your fear burst into rage.
The monstrous words inside of you
Refuse to remain in their cages.
You let those words escape your lips,
All of the sudden you feel like your words have killed someone.
As you see their face.
Words are suddenly bullets.
They’ve pierced your victim’s heart.
Fragments of a once pretty, friendship scatter on the floor.
The pieces so broken, I doubt you could find all of the shards to make it whole again.
There’s a slamming of a door.
Whether that be real,
Or just a metaphor.
To say you’ve been locked out,
From this once dear friend of yours.
I hope one day.
You’ll find better words
To form a key.
So you can find your way back to them.

The Concept of Pailing and Troll AnatomyThe Concept of Bucket Filling and Troll AnatomyThe Concept of Pailing and Troll Anatomy20 hours ago in Academic Essays More Like This
The trolls reproductive cycle is truly a concept shrouded in mystery. The reproductive organs used still a secret on canon terms to many of us avid fans. Plenty of headcanons have been created to atone for this absence in knowledge. Many popular ones tend to resurface again and again. My own ideals on the anatomy of trolls are fairly similar to some of these widely known headcanons.
Most likely, the best method to describe anatomy would be to start with the actual method of reproduction itself. Filling buckets. The need for concupiscent partners is actual far more urgent on Alternia, and is more likely to be a stress filled action with the amount of weight such an action holds for trolls. It is far more complex a thing than your usual instincts for reproduction. When the Imperial Drones appear at a hive door, you had better be able to fill the Filial Pails with genetic material or face an immediate death. (HOMESTUCK

And put it lightly to your skin.
There will be no more jagged edges
And it goes over scars nicely.
Removing the fat that doesn't exist
On your already lovely stomach.
Now, swallow tape that will mix into
your insides and the jig jaw will come together.
We can hope some of the tape will land on your shattered heart.
It can't drum out its beat happily without a stapler to the brain.
There is always something needed to hold it all together and cover the holes.

Vast Forest in the Land of Fire…
Amidst the towering trees in the land of fire, there was only the green of leaves and the brown of bark to be seen for miles. That changed when something landed on the branches and sprang off, yet it was so fast that all to be seen as it landed was a blur that disappeared to the next branch just as swiftly.
It raced through the treetops until it came to the edge of a vast clearing with a lone stone pillar right in the center before coming to a halt. By now, it was possible to make out just what this speeding object was: a teenage boy clad in a black-and-orange jacket and pants, traditional Konohagakure sandals, and a headband that bore a plate of metal with a leaf-shaped symbol carved into its surface.

I've been stuck for far too long in my mind without light.
I've been trying for so long to find my way out
But I find myself to be wandering all about.
Someone, please help me to find an escape.
I don't want this empty abyss to be my eternal fate.
Take my hand, I beg you, and lead me away from here.
Lead me from the hatred, the woes, the suffering, and all I fear.
Give me a chance to try and live among you in the light.
I only want to thrive; I don't want to start a fight.
I'm just so tired of trying to make it on my own.
Every time I think I've found my way my life is overthrown.
I'm tired of the suffering, the aching and bleeding pain.
A bit of peace and happiness is all I want to gain.
Save me from this life before I mistake to condemn myself.
Help me find the light and maybe save me from myself.

unwritten love letters in your eyes
now I keep thinking about

all I know is that
my skull's been
warriors traversing well worn paths
boots leaving tracks across
chests and necks
and it's comfortable
it's not like drowning
more like slowly lowering
into hot bathwater
and we are just skin and cosmos
bodies and words
our tongues landlocked
we are adrift in
our own little sea
we've plucked our wings
and now we can't fly
tell me the truth
that the sky's overrated
I'd rather be with you
on the ground
or buried beneath it
skeletons entwined truthfully
I've always thought heaven was
a pretty sort of lie
but I've read a book or two
or people's idea of it
and I disagree with myself
popping thought balloons
on the idea that heaven
is in the way your eyes
fold origami swans when you smile

that hollow above your heart

A computer was placed in the lair of Elec Man, more to keep track of Mega Man and communicate with Dr. Wily. Of course, Wily hacked the robots created by Light and made them serve him, so Elec Man was all pumped up for a fight, a few sparks surging through his hands.
"Elec Man! I don't know what it is, but something's coming! Keep on your guard!" Wily shout through the speakers of the computer. "Don't worry, my Shocking style will most certainly win, right?" Elec Man responded. "This is no time for puns! Get ready for a duel-uel-uel-uel-uel-ellllll...." Wily's picture went to static.
"Hm, so maybe the doc isn't underestimating this new guy. Maybe I'll tell him more about me if I win!" Elec Man gloated. A spark floated in his hands, as he snickered, with a light chuckle slipping under his breath. Though, since robots don't breath, I dunno how this worked.
Anyways, the computer went from static to completely black. Sparks started shooting out of the data ports, as more soon

Christmas in the Woodlands was always fun. Well I mean, I'd already had Christmas here twice. The Baccas really focused on the food more than the presents. They didn't actually do the whole presents thing at all. I didn't really mind that change. I never really liked that tradition anyway.
But Baccan food was amazing. It's like Italian food but like five times better, it's so good. Think of your favorite food, then multiply it by like six. Yeah, it's that good.
I had gone out to visit Dreven in the high city without Jerome, no longer afraid of running into some sort of hostile creature while I was alone. I had gotten into fights with lower city Baccas three times before. I'd come to have a reputation among them: The human who fought back.
They'd shout, "Bajan homines! Bajan homines!" 'Crazy human! Crazy human!' When they saw me coming, and most of them would run. Every time, I would just smile

But how could you not blush?! His white button-up shirt was soaked to the bone and sticking to his skin, the material now see-through and allowing his heavenly muscles to pop through. Oh god, how did you end up here?
“Oi, brat! What are you looking at?” Captain Levi suddenly called, making you jump with fright. You dared to meet his gaze, and were nearly shocked to see a smirk on his face.
“Sorry Captain! Uh, nothing Captain!” You poorly excused as you did your best to salute him.

And it grows in its likeness and your likeness
Which pleases you greatly
But there are lessons you forget
Until it is long and one is invested
That the language you speak is nothing
That their eyes are cold and empty
Ideas polar opposite and foreign
So that one can only speculate
And fear what comes after goodbye
Which seems more and more an eventuality
And there is sorrow here
That all the love you gave
Compared to the mind of the one
Who cannot answer back
Cannot respect what you feel

Besides, he couldn't have slept properly even if he wanted to. It wasn't home. Not really. It was missing Mama and Daddy and Star and Timothy and that funny fiery smell that still clung to his fur. He couldn't sleep without them. And his nest smelled funny. Like fish. Or at least, he guessed it smelled like fish. He wasn't quite sure what fish smelled like, but whatever it smelled like, it must have been an awful lot like this. Wriggling his rump, the scruffy tom scrabbled out of his nest and poked his nose outside of his shared den, teal eyes growing wide with excitement as he gazed up at the stormy grey sky.

Fatropolis!: 3--Interrupted Thoughts Centuries ago, an indigenous region was washed with a frighteningly bright light. Those who were above ground did not know how it happened. But, while in that same area, those who witnessed it first hand noticed that all manner of food somehow increased to rather large proportions. In addition, those who merely stayed there now had an undying will to eat. It altered much of their thinking. Those who were brave enough to escape still never escaped "bottomless pit" syndrome.Fatropolis!: 3--Interrupted Thoughts15 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
