I'd Rather Be DeadYou're always asking me if I had anything worth dying for.I'd Rather Be Dead1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'll pose the opposite to you and ask you this:
"Why is it that you find life to be worth living?"
Is it so interesting to go through each day feeling anxious?
To the point that you feel nauseated enough to collapse.
Is it so joyous to spend each night staring at a blank ceiling,
Hearing the clock tick on toward morning,
And yet you lie awake.
Tired, but awake, emotionless, but awake...
Do you truly get up each day, facing it with optimism.
Or do you look at the news and the state of the world,
And genuinely fear for your safety?
Now, if it were me that you had asked my dear,
I'd tell you quite honestly: That I'd rather be dead.
At least I would not have to hear the white lie inside my head.
That tomorrow will bring me a 'better' day...
But of course, you are welcome to believe that.

“No…No, you can’t just leave.” You said, staring at the door in disbelief. You just could not wrap your mind around what had just happened. In your mind this went beyond all logic and reason. She loved her brother so much, to the point of babying him at times. When you first met her she was practically hanging on him every moment. For her to just up and leave like this was preposterous.
“No.” you said a little firmer this time, shakily standing up from your sitting position.
“No, you can’t just leave!” Your voice rose a bit at this point as did the pain in your arm, but you ignored it all; your indignation outweighed everything else except for Natalya’s sudden disappearance.
“You can’t just leave! Do you hear me?! You can’t just leave like this!” you shouted, racing towards the door and flinging it op
What a Wonderful WorldI’m noticing thingsWhat a Wonderful World2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I didn’t before;
Things that I
Just can’t ignore.
Kids getting shot
For the colour of their skin,
Loving being treated
As though it’s a sin.
Sexism running like blood
Through the veins of the media,
Kids killing kids
In High School Hysteria.
People dying instead of
Being who they are,
Children getting shot down
As they reach for the stars.
Faith forming the target
For society’s arrow,
You’re either in too deep
Or you’re way too shallow.
The faithful using the Prince of Peace
To excuse their hatred,
And yelling ‘terrorist!’
At the followers of Mohammed.
Women walking the streets at night
With fear in their hearts,
Men being told to ‘man up’
When their soul is in parts.
Children starving to death
In the land of plenty,
Bigots with medieval views
In the twentieth century.

Antonio sat in the park, his back against the tree as he tied blades of grass into knots. He was tired of all the labels that were put on him. Just because he raised and cared for Romano, doesn't mean that's he's a pedophile! Sometimes he wished he could just disappear. Whether they were jokes or not, they still hurt him. He loves children! They're wonderful and delightful to be around.
Suddenly a soccer ball rolled towards him. Turning his head, he saw a small group of children. After a few moments, the youngest walked towards him. Smiling, he waved at the Spaniard, who waved back.
"H-HI! Sorry for disturbing you....but can we have the ball back?" Antonio smiled and handed the boy the ball. Giving him a quick thanks, he turned to go back to his friends. But...he paused. Looking back at Antonio, and then back at his friends, he sighed. Waving goodbye to Antonio, he went back to his friends. After the game started up again, the Spaniard decided he had better find somewhere e

Tsukishima didn't like it when boys would come up to you and confess their feelings.
He disliked it even more when you didn't do anything about it.
But he couldn't really blame you. You were only being nice and considerate about their own feelings, and didn't want to hurt them. You'd always kindly tell them that you were with someone else already, and that you couldn't return their feelings. The boys would always have a frown on their face; the hope that glinted in their eyes were gone and away. Of course, you'd be upset by this—you never really liked it when you made someone sad or upset, but there was nothing you could do. You were in a relationship with him, and as much as you appreciated the affection, there was no way you say that you had mutual feelings for them as well.
"Aren't you getting sick of this?" The blonde mumbled, pulling his scarf closer to him. "The confessions, I mean. You've been getting them a lot lately. Aren't you getting bothered by it?"

Evric had zipped his jacket almost all the way up, leaving a small gap so that he could hold Ellie against his chest, the flaps of the jacket and his hand covering her from the drenching rain.
Ellie’s heart was pounding in rhythm with Evric’s gargantuan footsteps, yet she felt safe and warm in his grasp for once. Yes, the wind was still tossing her reddish-brown hair into her face, but every other part of her was covered.
Tired of having to squint, Ellie faced the wall of warm blue shirt fabric. She let her knuckles go white as they grabbed at it, and then she burrowed hard against what she briefly forgot was Evric. That was, until she felt his larger-than-life heart softly pummeling against her, shaking her to the core but also calming her.
His fingers curled firmly but tenderly around her, allowing her to relax without the worry that she might fall. She was comfortably curled up, leaning against the taren’s warm body, but at the same time she was anxious.

Be it my pride or dignity.
You may throw insults at me,
And burn the shredded pieces of my sanity.
You may belittle me, as much as you want,
If only to make your meager life worth living.
But even if you do all that...
No one will protect you when I pull you into the dark.
No one will try to search for you, as my leather ropes tie you down.
No one will hear your screams as metallic screws drive into your face,
Etching an eternal smile, since you'll never leave this place...

It was the night before all hallow's eve and you, being the seventeen year old hardcore teen you were, were planning and chatting about the Halloween party you'd be attending with your long time best friend Nancy, over the phone.
Nancy was a very provocative teen, you could say. She had long, silk like orange hair. Her skin was quite pale, but her green eyes were big and bright. She always wore shimmering, light colored lipgloss, too. She didn't really have any female friends besides you and was never with a boyfriend for more than two months. She was pretty rebellious against her parents, so she was cool to do whatever you were doing without hesitating or second guessing it, which

Si es la soledad, necesito que te vayas, que seas tú, sin imitaciones, sin prejuicios de ti misma, que seas libre, que no te quedes donde no quieres, que no te quedes con quién no te hace feliz…
Me estás vaciando de alguien, de algo, del tiempo… y del olvido.
Nada de lo que digo es cierto, nada de lo que miro existe…
Necesito que te vayas… para que se me quite la monstruosa costumbre de depender de alguien.
Qué raro querer de tu futuro lo que deliberadamente dejaste ir en tu pasado.
Ya no veo en tu mirada alguna señal de cariño, es por eso que necesito que te vayas. Para que conozcas otros horizontes, para que te dejes llevar por tu hermosa locura.
Cuánto me gustaría saber escribir palabras bellas y convencerte de mi amor, por ahora lo único que sé hace

"Now who the hell do you think you are to tell me what to do?"
"I have been ordered by the commander to instruct today's training exercises, (Last Name) stand at attention or else."
Reluctantly, you sighed, staring back at Levi, who just happened to be your equal as far as military ranks went. Stiffening your posture, you saluted him before he began to saunter away, a smug look in his eyes.
For the next ten minutes or so, Levi demonstrated techniques that could be executed with the 3DMG and ways they could twist their blades in order to get a better cut. However, after the first ten minutes, he stopped.
"Damn it's too fucking hot." He grumbled, stripping off his jacket, upper belts (those that wrapped around his chest, back, etc.) and finally, his light grey shirt, throwing them on to the ground next to him, placing his clean white cravat on top of it all. Looking around, you noticed that nearly all the females were in awe, maybe even drooling,

from work one night
and stayed for tea and eggs,
and all that minimum wage
and wars between the sheets
She said she was a goddess,
daughter of a carpenter
with her long red, red hair
and eyes as warm as hazel nuts
on Christmas morning.
Her hands spoke braille
across my back
and made the silence
of Sunday into a prophecy.
She left one October
just like she said she would
when the fireflies
had turned their wings to ash.
And I found revelation

and cheap red, red fabric

You have to bleed out,
In order to have the courage to shout.
Against the darkness.
You have to know what it's like,
To feel disconnected,
To be best friends with your anxiety,
Because it's the only thing to keep you company.
Because you've never felt so lonely.
Even though you're surrounded in a sea of noise,
Which drowns out your voice.
As you choke,
On society's noose
You're afraid to cut it loose.
Because you don't know what others will think of you.
You have to know depression.
You have to know what it's like to be alone.
You have to know what it's like to be silenced.
In order to appreciate breathing,
And to fall in love with colors.
After being blind,
For all of that time.
And only being able to see memories,
In order to appreciate a person's presence.
And the feeling,
When you finally find a friend.
Who will stick with you until the end.
And not judge you for your scars.
But loves who you are.

A few hours ago, (Name) had been stuck in the middle of Stark’s party. You know, the one he’d promised to throw her barely an hour after she got back home? That’s the one.
It was totally amazing for her, to be honest. She loved every minute of the loud music, forcing Bruce to dance with her and “loosen up a little”, then getting Clint, Tony and even Pepper in on the dancing. The only one who hadn’t been there was Fury, Steve and Natasha. Which was okay, seeing as they were a little caught up in their lives at the moment.
Which secretly made her wonder why Clint hadn’t gone with Natasha and Steve, but she could hardly care more or less. Having a sexy archer with a really nice butt wasn’t anything she was about to miss out on.
However, the festivities had very quickly come to an end for her when she received the call from Steve. It had been a sudden one, and a very, very traumatic one at that.
