It’s not what you deserve.
Don’t think that way,
Because one day,
This won’t matter anyways.
Keep your head held high for now,
I know it hurts,
Words can feel suffocating.
As you feel like your lungs are collapsing,
Under the weight of the pain,
In your chest.
I know it stings,
And it seems like it takes forever for the bell to ring.
As you count down the hours.
But it doesn’t matter.
When you just go home,
To sit in your room alone.
Because words unlike bruises don’t go away.
Once they are said they are here to stay.
And silence is excruciating.
But being in a crowd of violent stares,
Is no better.
So where do you go?
Is the question you’ll never know.
But don’t give up just yet!
Things will not always be like this.
Yes, today seems hopeless.
Tomorrow seems worse.
One more day of hearing another hateful word.
Might make your head explode,
And sometimes you want to drive yourself completely off the road.

Like a castle of cards
Ghosts of the past
Refusing to go away
And the pain of loss
Getting worse each day
This is not
What life should be
This is a nightmare
And I want to wake up
So please don't leave me
When I need you the most
Jen-In-The-Box“No, Jen! Go on and intern at Horizon Industries! They’ve got the latest tech, you sure won’t be doing busy work!” Jennifer grumbled to herself as she put yet another toy into the replicator.Jen-In-The-Box13 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Granted, the technology itself was really cool stuff--prototype cloning but in a different way. The idea was pretty simple, since matter couldn’t be created or destroyed, the ray simply converted something from one form to another. You put something in the replicator, fired up the beam, hit a target, and poof! Perfect copy.
There were only two problems. The first was that she had to keep her hair in a ponytail behind her head, to ‘avoid contamination’. It was standard lab procedure, but Jennifer had hoped Horizon Industries had moved beyond those archaic techniques. But that was a minor quibble.
Jennifer’s real problem was that since the company was unwilling to test on anything organic, she had t
Alley (Thug!Levi X Reader) [AU]Today, of all days, your boss had to choose for you to stay overtime at the office. He didn’t pay enough for the quality of your work, not even with overtime money, but he at least paid well enough. One day, you’d take the company over from him and you’d be the big boss, large and in charge.Alley (Thug!Levi X Reader) [AU]1 day ago in General Fiction More Like This
Taking your usual route home, you noticed a little tabby cat mewing sadly off to the side in between two buildings. Normally, you wouldn’t stop, especially given the time – it was 11pm – but the kitten was so precious. Something about it was so familiar, you felt the need to slowly move a little closer to get a good look. It was a black and white kitten that, comically, resembled one of your favorite cartoon heroes, Batman. You chuckled at the thought, inching closer as slowly and quietly as you could, to not frighten the kitten.
You could tell that it was rather hungry. It looked awfully thin and its sad eyes looked up to you as if pleading with you for help. Yo

Pewds and Marzia are a perfect match
When Octodad goes on a date
It's a total disaster, mate

Easily scared and yet so amusing,
we love you, Pewds, don't change a thing
Thy Fallen AdamO father, thou hast forsaken me.Thy Fallen Adam9 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Thou hast breathed essence
Into these corpse lungs, and yet
Thou had cast me out
Into this cold black with no regret.
Why dost thou shudder so father?
Thine eyes were the first I
Bore witness to in mine blossom.
'Ere did that grace of life ebb within;
Yet thou did but blench and look
No more upon thy creation no farther.
Dost thou have stomach to embrace?
O father, I ought to have been an angel,
But alas thou hast sewn a villain's face
To hide mine internal beauty.
O father, why thou elude me of love?
Thou elude my diabolic presence
With thy Prometheus hands, and still
Thy plague am I to thou
In pestilence dire I maketh thou ill.
Where dost thou go to weep father?
Look! Even stars insult my frame
Ne'er did the celestial offer me comfort,
Yet thou would dare mock too.
Only shallow rain cries tears ever blue.
Dost thou have conscience to behold?
O father, did thou not dream me as mortal,
But I am a patchwork of nightmares old
As a mirror of thy own cruelt

Its odd...walking into a school with others who usually protect you and shelter you surrounding you in an array of reds, yellows, blue and greens. Proxy..its a term I am all to familiar with and honestly, I sometimes feel closer to them than to Father. They usually do three things in my case: don't acknowledge you, respect you when you are around or act normal around me. I always wondered how Father trains them in the lethal skills of honed combat techniques I see when they are out at the field or why they are usually so agile in tasks of reflexes, tasks of endurance or anything of that nature. Though..for usually being insulted upon by the outside members of our little society of ghost, ghouls, puppets, demons and other otherworldly creatures, it was almost comforting to get close to some of these Proxies. Though..not everyone tends to like me. Not one bit.
You see, I..well..Ally and myself (whom everyone calls me Night

“I know you think that Uncle,” said Dmitri, “But being cooped up in the manor all day isn’t healthy for anyone,”
“Even you,” said Nikolai. But just seeing ___________ happy was enough for him. She wanted the party to be themed with fairytales. He was still leery though. He didn’t want everyone knowing about her. It wasn’t because he was ashamed of her, he just didn’t want her to get hurt on his behalf. He had to admit, she looked happier.

You were running down the hall, pieces of paper in your hands. You had promised your boss you would have your presentation ready by twelve, but because the only copy machine on your floor had broken, you had had to fix it before you could print all your flyers.
When you heard screams, you stopped running and looked around you. It wasn't until then you noticed that most of the offices were empty and people were gathered around the stairs. Instinctively you dropped all the papers and reached for the gun on your belt. There wasn’t one. You sighed, remembering you were no longer part of the Special Forces. You had left that part of your life behind. Or at least you tried to.
'What's going on?' you asked one of your colleagues. She seemed ready to cry any minute.
'New York is under attack,' your boss, David, said as he helped his employees get down the stairs.
'What do you mean?' you frowned. 'Under attack by what?'
'I... I don't know,' he mumbled. 'I don't want to know.'

You cried as you hugged the picture of your late dad closer to your small chest, tears flowing down your cheeks, which were lightly tinted pink.
Your eyes were puffy and you were a sniffling mess.
You threw the photo of you dad to the blank white wall, the frame and glass breaking in the process.
You put your hands onto your face, trying to stop the tears from falling out of your eyes. Of course you didn't succeed. All you did was make a noise that a certain american could hear.
"Little dudette? You okay?"
Alfred F. Jones, your new dad. He adopted you a few days ago. You didn't trust him. He was too...

You heard footsteps coming closer to you.
You held the tears back so you couldn't worry him.

You turned towards him.

Messy locks of hair were thrown back as the dangerous man on top of you sent you over the edge of ecstasy. He was phenomenal at what he did, and it left you eager to be in this position on some other day here in the near future. It felt great like this, this feeling of contentment. Levi Ackerman, the notorious thug in your town, had a tendency to "drop by" your apartment, call it "filthy shit", proceed to clean it, and somehow he'd convince you to make love to him in return for his petty services. You assumed he came here when he needed a place to hide from cops or rival gangs, which normally would be incentive to slam the door in someone's face. However, he made you feel so damn good you nearly anticipated whenever he'd show up and invite himself in. How you allowed yourself to get involved with an ex-convict (who was still doing crimes), was beyond you. You were his social worker for god’s sake! But taking him under your wing had resulted in this dange

I can't focus on anything right now. If I'm given an assignment I make up some idiotic excuse to avoid it. And don't get me started on paper work.
