Bleed into ink.

We Only Live To DieThis is what we live for—these whispers on our lipsWe Only Live To Die1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
The drying bits of blood on our paper-cut fingertips
Opening the letters that we left our future selves
A bittersweet reminder of those storybooks on the shelves
This is what we live for – this emotion in our souls
The torture and the bittersweet moments of lost control
Biting cracked lips with the dirt beneath our nails
These moments of imperfection as our trains of thought derail
This is what we live for – shutting doors and opening eyes
Smiling for a moment, before the tears reveal our lies
This is what we live for, this reality, this life…
This is what we live for,
As we only live
Scar TissueI don’t know what I hated more: myself, or the fact that my crying woke him up. It couldn’t be later than two in the morning, I had woken up from another nightmare and I found myself huddled in the same spot I always went to in times like these: the bathtub.Scar Tissue2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a bad habit I got myself into since childhood, but the coldness of the tub gave me a comfort most things couldn’t. I had been good about keeping my pain hidden from the rest of the world, but by night it came crawling back to me in the form of dreams and flashes of guilt.
The tears would come before I could stop them and I always found myself in this tub. He never knew, and I never told him. What was the point? I’m a girl stuck in reverse who can’t seem to let go of yesterday and take in the joys of tomorrow. My whole life was like a damaged tape, repeating itself when it shouldn’t and having a hard time moving forward. I always could repress my sobs, and I wondered if I was louder than I

It was midnight when Katara snuck out to practice her blood bending. Although she had many ethical issues with it, she had to admit it would come in handy. As she waited for the moon to rise a bit higher, Aang snuck outside to train his bending in preparation for the upcoming battle. He saw Katara preparing to practice her bending, so Aang went behind a nearby rock to not break her focus.
Katara began to meditate, becoming one with the nature around her as the moon filled up the night sky. She was ready. Before they had left the old woman’s house, Katara had found some of her training techniques. She began to move rhythmically, starting off easily as she made a few squirrels copy her moves. She slowly increased the complexity of her moves until the squirrels and a local bear were recreating a tea party before fighting each other. Katara released her hold as the animals ran away. She breathed in, preparing to go up another level of practice.
Aang meanwhile was practicing silent be

A Skirt, a goddamn skirt. Slender knows i wear pants for a reason. Damn it all, these outfits are hideous *sighs* My stitching shows more now than it did when i had my regular outfit. I miss my turtle neck. I miss alot of things. Death is not fun. If i hadn't died- No. If i had been more prepared I wouldn't have died. Meow wouldn't be dead and i wouldn't be the useless crap I am.
This school seems alright. I met a few people already. Furio, Richy, Diesel. Living in Oregon and only working in the Rockies has got me out of touch. Then again I've been exiled for a few years. God theres so much i want to talk about.
The P.E. Teacher scares me, i know i should be fine in this class but... He's cat like, so i'm going to have to try really hard.
Someone thought i was the librarian. Don't even know who she is and i don't plan on meeting her.

You've Gone Far EnoughHow many times have you tried, just to put me down,You've Gone Far Enough3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The last time I remember, I was underground.
And even then I rose up, just to challenge the greats.
You might be thinking that your wins are all a part of your fate;
But it's not!
You're a little puppet in the game,
And when you try to take me out, you'll be feeling the strain!
I will be breathing down your neck and it's offense;
No nonsense. I am the Word of Chen, execution commence!
And now you're feeling the pressure, I'll make you suffer;
Your words try to cut me, but you're bleeding your brother!
You don't recognize that I'm the one who paved your way;
And now you're crying, sweating bullets, while you kneel and pray-
I don't find you. You're scared! Your soul is bared,
The only thing that makes us different is the fact that I cared!
But it don't matter now boy! You can laugh and smile,
Because the only thing left is to burn you in a Word of Chen style.

"Where else does it hurt?"
Nishinoya proceeded to point at the area where he had gotten a bruise. You clicked your tongue, but you didn't say anything. Instead, you took out the ointment and carefully applied it gently, your fingers delicately moving across his bruise. It hurt. It hurt a little bit, and Nishinoya had to bite his lip so he wouldn't make any noise. But at the same time, it was comforting. Your touch—you were so cautious not to hurt him, treating him like a delicate glass that could break any moment. After you had finished applying the ointment, you then took an elastic bandage and wrapped it around the bruised area to reduce the pain.
It was still painful, but he decided not to mention it. You did so much for him already.
"That all?" You said, raising a brow at him. Something about Nishinoya was odd today. He was quiet. He was usually loud and filled with life, and as much as you hated the obnoxious out-bursts, you weren't going to deny the fact that

Nathan watched as a flicker of guilt crossed Ethan’s face. All around them the lair was quite. Everyone was asleep, everyone but them. They couldn't sleep; they were too nervous. Tomorrow was the day, tomorrow was the day Donatello and his mate leatherhead would perform the surgery that would separate them forever. After several more moments of silence Nathan watched as his brother swallowed nervously before nodding slowly. "Y.....yes."
Nathan watched as Ethan's body language changed. His shoulders slumping forward, his eyes dropping to loot at the floor, as he hung his head sadly. "I'm.......I'm sorry.....I just.........I........"
Slowly Nathan looked up at him, small tears forming in the corners of his eyes. "He’s just........he's so nice to us. He always is so kind of us......and he.......he's attractive and.......I’m sorry."

Magpie on the Gallows
High above my head,
Tell me truly, maggot–pie,
Is my lover dead?
When he went away to war,
To me eternal love he swore
Tell me truly, bird of gloom,
Where his bed and what his doom?
From the gallows hear the magpie screech:
From now on your lover’s out of reach.
In a bed of mud he died
Soldiers slept at either side,
He has never been faithless dear,
And never will be now, I fear.
Magpie on the Gallows
Feathered white and black,
My brother went a–hunting
Will he not come back?
He was tall and he was strong,
Face was fair and limb was long.
Tell me truly, maggot–pie,
Did he live or did he die?
From the gallows hear the magpie scream
Now your brother is left alone to dream.
There’s no need for you to fret
He’s still fair to look at yet,
He lay in the snow to doze,
And while he slept the poor lad froze.
Magpie on the gallows
Where the death–rope creaks,

Everyday was the same, your empty soul held the equivalent to feeling dead. The filth you have to give yourself up to was so revolting it made you question the essence of your existence. Men, sometimes even women with greed and no patience would pay you cheap money for cheap thrills, and you accepted with a void expression every time. Sometimes you wondered about how your life could have been if you would have just stayed with him, your asshole of an ex. But when he left, so did his money, and you had run out of options. Being a streetwalker wasn't all it was cracked up to be, most of the time you didn't even fell alive while putting out for clients. This was your world, and there was no way to escape it's treacherous clutch. Some days were better than others though, as with any job. Especially the days with him.

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.

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

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

Porcelain pieces were on the floor, the painful sound still echoing against the wall. Both pair of eyes stared at it, tears falling from them.

Shattered pieces were everywhere, and with those, the memories of the important person who gave it to Arthur.
"Ah..." [Y/N] brought a hand to her mouth, staring to the broken figure on the floor. "I am so sorry!"
