I'd Rather Be DeadYou're always asking me if I had anything worth dying for.I'd Rather Be Dead4 days 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.

I just let the pen
Across crumbled pages.
I let my soul
Bleed into ink.
As my way of asking

But They never answer.

“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

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...

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?"

What a Wonderful WorldI’m noticing thingsWhat a Wonderful World5 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.

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.

It was that time of the month.
No not that time of the month! It was October!
You loved what that meant; it meant one of your favorite holidays to dress up into whatever you wanted and nobody would judge you on it.
“Halloween” you breathed.
That’s right! It was almost Halloween so in order to celebrate it before the big day you went to a nearby amusement park called “Knott’s Berry Farm”. However, on October the name switched to “Knott’s Scary Farm”.
The name sent tingles down your spine. You had never gone to a Halloween themed amusement park before. You had heard from all your friends that it was awesomely terrifying but you never went…until now.
Currently you were with your boyfriend, Levi and your other friends Hanji and Petra in line to get into the amusement park.
You and your ‘girlfriends’ were pretty excited for the Halloween Fest but your boyfriend was grumpy. Levi thought it was stupid

You'll never amount to anything.

You have no friends.
People hate you.
You are a freak.
You have no place here.
You are nothing more than a coward who
is too afraid to step outside half the time.
Your face is like something from a horror movie.
No one will ever truly fall in love with you.
Guys want girls that are beautiful and face it,

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

"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,

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

That idiot she went on that stupid mission and got herself hurt badly, I told the damn chibi to be careful but she went and flip off my words like she usual does.
So now here I am waiting in my room for everyone to sleep or be in there rooms to get ready for the night, no way in hell will I ever let people know I went to see the damn chibi.
When it came time to do so I had got out of my room quietly and headed down the hall to the medical ward, as I did I started to notice this feeling in my chest rise again when I had heard of (Y/N)'s condition from the mission. It was that damn Noah's fault.
Was I worried? Che! Hell no I don't give two shits about this place, but lately this girl has been breaking down the walls I had up and i've only known her since before moyashi came around and joined so that would be about two years or more. Don't remember and don't care.

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
