We Only Live To DieThis is what we live for—these whispers on our lipsWe Only Live To Die7 hours 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

"Do you love Mikey too?"
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."
Nathan bit his lip. He hated seeing Ethan like this. Hated seeing his literal other half and older brother sad. Shif
When Nothing ChangesEvery week is the same. Nothing changes,When Nothing Changes7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Nothing is gained, and they are filled with pain
Of loss and hopelessness that they cannot
Escape. No asylum for them to seek,
Only tyrannical silence to keep
Their eyes focused on unfair addiction,
Already claiming lives too young, futures
That hadn’t yet begun; their smiles, admired
And sincere, spread sorrow like wildfire here.
No words are spoken. Tears begin to flow
Among the woeful, staring down gravestones
That now belong to friends with no safe home.
Every week is the same. Nothing changes,
Nothing is gained, and there is no clean vein
Available, brain stains permanently
Unerasable. And the serpent sneaks
Around the branches, waiting for chances
To take away yet another. Heartbreak
Again, a dream from which they cannot wake.

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
Deep VoiceI was born with a voice that merely betrays me;Deep Voice8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
as each day I roam
and get labelled as 'sir',
as each day I attempt to let myself be heard
only to be drowned out by the slightest of breezes,
as each day I remain shatterproof
but my voice will still break into blunt shards
of glass that tear the mask and its string,
And yet you argue that emotions
are just another thing?
But of course, it's my fault in the end
as I never gave it practice to do well for me;
I was simply terrified and now
I'm paying the price
I hear it ringing through my spine,
my deep voice much too low to even be mine,
With its accent traveled far too south
when I'm from the north
and my main traitor is my own mouth
And it's beginning anarchy
Against my own accord,
my low voice will go against my choice
to be silent and will instead
allow me to snap and to scream;
To nearly piss myself over a stupid bee,
to cuss and cry when I'm pushed over the edge,
to commit such lies and such dirty deeds
My voice once was a par

over water, away
Sailing the wind
To the end of day
High fidelity, hearken
A weather eye
When autumn skies
Clouds scatter and flee
Before taking flight
Between here and away
The moment stretching
The pause between breaths
The calm that comes before the storm...
Ocean already tugs at the lifelines.
A whisper of cooler Atlantean air
The storm comes
From the breath of susurration
To the thundering wave's drums
Inexorably now, it comes.
Caught up by horizon storms
The shore beneath you disappears
The sea provides fair warning.
And from the savage night —
Full-throated furies howl and rage —
High and dry by morning.
Cast up by the sea
Strange creatures and mysteries
Leave beachcombers to wonder
But what the sea provides

Sjin shook his head. “But we can't leave without you...”
“You have to...” he said, grimacing in pain. His hands started to change color, and they realized that the full moon had begun it's ascent into the night sky.
“Please... run...” Lalna choked out, squeezing his eyes shut and clenching his hands into fists, digging his claws into the palms of his hands.
The Endermother quickly moved forward and took Lalna from Sjin, gesturing for them to back away.
And then suddenly, they heard a long chilling roar, which echoed through the night.
They all froze in fear.

"Is it me or is the forest getting creepier by each step we take?" Sky asked.
"Nope, we notice it too." Dipper said.
"Something's familiar about this." Jack spoke.
"Yeah, like it was in a movie." Erin pondered.
"Well whatever it is, let's get out of here soon. This place is getting spookier." Zoey said.
"Zoey's right, way spookier than the Elephant Graveyard." Erin spoke.
Soon Jack notices an old pumpkin nearby, and then sees some horseshoe prints on the dirt road. He was able to put two and two together, as his eye sockets widen in concern. The others continued their journal. Tails unknowingly stepped over a squash pumpkin. They come across another graveyard.
"Guys!" Jack exclaimed, getting everyone's attention, "We got to get out of here now!"

Because you're a girl.
He can't hit girls as hard as he can hit Oikawa.
"You're pushing me really slowlyyyy...." You yawned, causing another wave of annoyance to come over Iwaizumi. You stood up, stretched, and sat back down on the tire. He thought it would be a good idea to go on the tire swing at the park near Seijoh, but was wrong.
"Well, sorry. Want me to go faster?"
"Sure." He bent over and pushed you hard, and you swung forward, coming back to him quickly. He pushed you again as soon as you came back, and you let out a loud giggle, making Iwaizumi laugh as well.

Jameson entered a thrift store one day. He was on a budget, and needed to save money so he went to
Where items were cheap and possibly for old things he wanted when he was younger, but never got.
He was looking for a new hat, he spotted a red bandana in a rack of hats, he took it out from the rack, but was surprised to see, brown hair (fake but convincing) and skin-based latex attached to it.
“Wha-?” exclaimed Jameson
In his hand, was the face-a mask-of May from the Pokemon series. The face had holes where the eyes went and the mouth was an O face. Jameson was filled with thrill and excitement.

When Jameson was home and all alone in his room, he put on the mask. It was a bit of a tight fit, but Jameson was more than tolerable of it. When he aligned the mask perfectly so it was in all the right places, he

It was the time of the year where the air became cold and crisp.
The leaves were turning from their luscious green to beautiful shades of reds, oranges, yellows and browns.
The leaves that had already met their time of falling were scattered about the forest floor.
The serene forest of colors was silent besides the crunching of the dry fall leaves as two people walked through the small clearings nestled in the thickest part of the woods.
“I love the fall~” sung a girl with (H/C) hair as she spun around merrily kicking up the brightly colored leaves, letting them dance in the breeze around her.
Her raven haired companion huffed, “It’s filthy as hell out here.” He grimaced as he looked at the leaves covering the ground.
The girl stopped twirling to give the man a pout, “Levi you think everything is filthy.”
“Because everything is. Besides the places I clean anyway.”
The girl turned away from him and looked
