Some Broken PeopleSome broken people can hurt you without thoughtSome Broken People4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But believe me when I say it’s not their fault
With an open wound as delicious as yours
It would be a shame not to rub in the salt
So why do you insist on shaking that girl
Do you like playing the martyr on your knees?
Acting like you’re a paragon of purity
Well today that purity feels ripe for disease
Some broken people cry not knowing what for
Have sympathy as they weren’t born with black hearts
Like you and I they have grey matter in their brain
But their thoughts are a great distance from dark
So why do you insist on hitting that girl
When she stopped feeling many blue moons ago?
A waste of energy, like her wasted breath
When she told you that her safe word was ‘no’
Some broken people lash out without warning
At those close to them that they hold most dear
Trying to fight away those armed with feelings
Yet at the same time wishing that they were near
So why do you insist on leaving that girl?

No world is perfect. Not even a world where giants and humans coexist. There’s still bullying, belittling, bankruptcy, business frauds, lying, cheating, stealing, killing; everything that I imagine a sin-ridden world would have. We’re lucky though, because here on Tare, our blemished, beautiful planet, there are laws that punish those who do wrong. We’re fortunate, because for every criminal, there are at least three law enforcers. We’re blessed, because it’s not often that we humans are terribly endangered by the giants that surround us. In fact, we’re more of a plague to them than they are to us.
Let me explain myself.
My name is Ellie Parker, and I am a descendant of one of the one thousand humans who were sent to live on this planet after earth was so brimming with war and hatred that no one could live in safety. Of course, that was almost four hundred years ago. While we do have the knowledge of space travel at hand, our civilization is on
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.
Romano x Country!Reader - Luigi Is Number OneAmulet-Voltaire: Romano is my favorite Italian Brother, Luigi is my favorite Mario brother, and thus, this idea was born!Romano x Country!Reader - Luigi Is Number One6 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
[F/n] - first name, [C/n] - country name
[H/l] - hair length, [H/c] - hair color, [E/c] - eye color
“Come on, Mario and Luigi! We’ll be late!” [M/n] laughed as she dragged North and South Italy. Lovino growled, but Feliciano just laughed. Romano hadn’t growled because he was angry at [F/n], he growled simply because he hated that nickname.
See, Romano always had a crush on [C/n], aka [F/n]. At first, he fell in love with her sparkly, emotion filled eyes and her Goddess like [h/l][h/c] hair (Romano vision). Then he fell in love with how she pays more attention to him and not his fratello, unlike everyone else, who are always trying to get North Italy’s attention.

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.

Music: If you know what you’re doing, it’s a wonderful, relaxing outlet. You can learn how to express your feelings through music, move thousands of people at once, serenade a pretty girl, challenge an opposing band – the possibilities are endless.
“Who wrote this? Shakespeare?”
Evric laughed the comment off, but behind the mask he was embarrassed. He didn’t consider himself a great writer, but he’d spent a lot of time working on the flyers for the afterschool club that he and his best friend David were in charge of.
“Yeah. You’ll never guess how long it took to summon him across time and space to write that for me,” he flashed a grin at his younger cousin, Janie.
She tossed a red strand of hair behind her shoulder, giggling as she looked at the senior guy sitting across the table. She knew that he loved anything artistic, whether it be writing, music, acting, painting – the whole package.

“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

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

You only continued to pout at his response. "You can't go as yourself! That defeats the purpose of dressing up!"

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

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 wasn’t until the bell of a massive glass door rang out that Ellie snapped out of her thoughts. She grew very aware of the skin of a stranger pressing against her own sleeveless arms, so she teetered forward, hoping to get away from it as much as possible. Then again, she was sitting in someone’s hand. He was touching her, whether either of them liked it or not. Taking a deep breath, Ellie ignored her thundering heart and raised her voice.
“Could you maybe...like...put me down?” Shaking violently, the girl managed to balance herself on her knees, grabbing for the giant thumb that hung near her like the bar that fastens one in to a roller coaster car. The first thing she noticed as her air-condition-chilled arms wrapped around the appendage was how very warm it was. Curious, her fingers began to explore the small area they spanned across, feeling the lines and curves and smooth and rough grooves of a colossal fingerprint.
Evric was certainly aware of the

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

Tomorrow you would take the test to become a full-fledged jonin but you were really nervous to say the least. Although you were confident in your skills and abilities, doubt still was able to invade your mind. “What if I’m not cut out for this?” you asked yourself “I’m barely 20 and sure Lady Hokage recommended me but…” You sighed “Maybe she was mistaken” “I don’t think so Lady Hokage is almost never wrong” You knew that voice well “Hmp!

The words were moaned out pitifully, but the lance corporal barely focused on them. His eyes were locked straight ahead, searching endlessly for any sign of the Wall that was the only thing between life and death for her. For (Name).
A Titan had caught her off guard. A smaller one, but apparently had the brain capacity in that tiny, revolting head to know how to jump. She’d just finished off another 7-meter, when it had leapt up and slammed her into a tree in a mad attempt to grab her. If she hadn’t been in motion, it would have caught her for certain. And he wouldn’t be holding onto her right now, grasping for that one little piece of hope that she could survive.
If only he could get to the Wall..

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.
