You Are BeautifulHey there friend,You Are Beautiful9 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have something I need to tell you -
You are beautiful.
Whether you are a cute little pixie
Or a voluptuous goddess;
Whether your body is a rolling landscape
Or a smooth, flat tropical beach.
This is something I really must stress -
You are beautiful.
Whether your hair is blonde
Or brown or black
Or red or green,
Long or short
Or tied up at the back
Or not there at all -
You are beautiful.
Whether you wear short skirts
Or button-up shirts,
Or torn up jeans
And band t-shirts;
Whether you dress all in pink
Or blue or black
Or every colour
To the sky and back -
You are beautiful.
Whether you don your make-up
Like war paint,
Or you wear none at all -
You are beautiful.
Whether your body is an art gallery
Of scars and stretch marks,
Or as smooth as honey;
Whether you hang out in parks
Or libraries or malls or bars -
You are beautiful.
Whether you stride around
As the magnificent force you are,
Or you ride a wheelchair
Like royalty in a carriage -
You are beautiful.

Some of us are manufactured,
With stitches that are a bit off.
And we get put back on the shelf.
While others are made perfectly,
Included with bows and pretty dresses.
But eventually we all get loose strings,
And we become such tattered, worn out things.
We all eventually pull at these loose ends
Until we all unravel.
And some can be sewn back together,
While others are broken forever.

The moon trembles with your wing beats.
Do not let the wolves whittle lies
into your hallowed bones, for you
were never miniscule. You are
centimeters contorting into meters,
minute millimeters morphing
into a colossal kilometer.
Your shadow prowls the hunting grounds,
but you are no killer. Kind hearted
birds are more than powerless prey.
Loveliest Lark, surround yourself
with temperate touches and
weave wonder into those you come across.
And while white fireflies blink
in their lighthouse language,
know that there is hope slung
beneath your fluttering feathers.
A Music Listener I'll Always BeMy headphones are my barriers,A Music Listener I'll Always Be5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
They pump the words I like to hear into my ears.
They block out the idiotic words you say,
They keep the unforgiving actions out of my brain.
Instead I listen to the words I love to hear,
Smile as I get new ideas, inspiration from the artists.
I don't care if you can hear the lyrics,
I don't care if you want me to rip my earbuds out.
I refuse to do so, because that would being you what you want,
You don't deserve that.
So I'll keep my earbuds in,
I'll let the music pump through my ears.
I'll let it shake my eardrums and make my veins pump faster in excitement,
I'll allow my mind to wonder with the lyrics, to gain new ideas for my stories.
A singer, a writer I am.
A music listener I will always be.

I don’t want to hurt you.
So I’ll keep it inside instead.
Eating away at my insides.

Stupid CupidI shot Cupid todayStupid Cupid8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Killed him in self defense
He was pointing his arrows at me again
Those deadly poison laced arrows
The most deadly poison known to man
I killed Cupid
Shoved his own arrow through his heart
No longer will he poison anyone
No longer will poison me
He shot me with those arrows to many times
Never again would I allow him to shoot again
Cupid is dead
His arrows smashed
His wings still
I smiled as I slid that arrow
Deep into his chest
Through his heart
And I laughed
When the light left his eyes
And in death he finally understood
What it meant to die for love

Stubbornly I cling to your existence.
You ARE real.
I choose not to believe otherwise.
Your gentle words and support hoover in my mind.
Terrifyingly close to being lost,
hope uses you as a lure into the light.
I cannot turn away.
I will not banish you from my heart.
I need security in my uncertain world.
I can't walk away.
Maybe I will vanish over and over,
until all memories are lost.
Maybe time will tear us apart-
or the overwhelming physical distance.
Perhaps we will be too different in person,
irreconcilable with our online personas.
Mayhaps our families will not approve our relationship.
There are so many things that can go wrong.
so much could go well.
I just need to keep in contact with you,
keep your memory alive.
No matter how many times I vanish,
you promised to be there.
I hope your words are proven true.
I really dread and half way expect betrayal.

A crop of harbour wood
With broken blade deep in my side
And breath spilt out the hilt
White voices in the smoky mists
And carried off of air
That leaves as red as virgin rose
When cleft its feet in love
A heavy brow of curls and lashes
And eyes behind their rap
Upon my ribs with dulling pain
As more I have it be
Spray as clean as silty roads
And silk to trade the walk
The mountain caps with veins of blue
Come meet a garden parting

CrossroadsOnce I was at a crossroad,Crossroads5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Told that I had a choice.
Him or him, I cannot have both.
Both beautiful and special to me, but both so far out of reach.
I went down the middle of the crossroad,
I found myself at the crossroad again,
The road cracked lightly and the signs rusting.
To live or die, as I held my knife.
I dropped my knife, and went down to the right side, the living side.
I came to the crossroad one last time as I was a child.
The land around the roads were broken and tore,
The grass grey and stained.
The path cracked and slashed with red.
The signs scratched and unreadable at this point.
There I stand, confused and frightened to choose.
To fight or to flee,
I know is what the signs flee.
I run down the road that says flee.
Thoughts Of The Third OneFirst month seemed fineThoughts Of The Third One14 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Such happiness he brought for her
The love, seems eternal, I don't mind
But how much will it remain blur?
Kisses and hugs are ok, I guess
Just means the love they share
Second month's getting stronger
But it is only just and fair
It's getting a bit annoying
Having to see that every time of every day
Third month's charm is fading away
But can I endure more? How much will I pay?
I can't handle anymore of this
Four months is a limit so high
So please, I need a break
From the third-wheeling, so bye
At the fifth month, tragedy struck
Lost both a friend and the best
Just because I separated from them
Hmm... I should have guessed
I miss her, she was all I had
A person worthy to be called "friend"
Six months has passed, but do I regret?
Who knows? It doesn't matter in the end

I gave you on my birthday
The signature of authenticity,
On the sealed doors of my old bedroom.
Hold my hand, vehicle of life
The pleasure is mine
Let me be soothed by your
Porcelain skin one more time
See your hair on my head
Your blood in my veins
Your reflection in mine
And promise me you’ll rest
Tell me you’ll stop
Paving a path for me
Through the thorns
With your naked flesh
Let’s look like a perfect pair
With our set of matching scars
Mine from bearing greed encased in longing
Yours from sacrifice
But my feet were bound in solitude
Yet my hands grasped for your love
Torn in sweet escape
All I want is nothing more
Than to see you asleep without furrowed brows
To silence your painful moans
And free the warm colours of your laugh
I want to take off into galaxies that
Shine behind your worn o

Why can't you just leave me be?
Too many times I've heard your voice,
Too many times I've been burned to my very soul.
You tricked me, played me like a fool,
Oh how could you so cruel?
I know you are sorry, I know you are regretting,
But then maybe I'm acting that you do.
How can I believe you are sorry,
When you left me when I needed your hand?
My world crumbling,
My heart aching as my world crashes to the ground.
The days I've been counting,
Since our breaking depart.
My heart has mended some cracks,
With the help of fellow friends and their tacks.
But soon I'll crumble, and the cracks will appear again,
For the fool like I am I fall for the same trick every time.
Luffy X Reader REQUEST! HAPPY THANKSGIVING"Happy thanksgiving Everyone!" You cheered, leading the crew into the kitchen.

"(Name)...You did all this by yourself?" Sanji asked.
"Yup! There should be enough food for everyone! Even with Luffy's appetite!" You smiled on. Proud of your accomplishment.
Before the entire crew was the following:
6 large Turkeys
4 bowls of rolls
3 bowls of stuffing
10 bottles of wine
2 bowls of mash potatoes
2 bowls of green beans
4 gravy spouts
and one giant cake for dessert.
Luffy, whom you made this special dinner for, came bursting through the crowd, and wrapped you up in his little rubber man arms. Drool pouring like a waterfall from his open mouth as he thanked you for the food.
"Oh...(Name)...What's Thanksgiving?" Luffy asked.
"Oh, that's right, I guess you don't know...well to put it simply, it's a holiday where I come from. On this day, we gather around with our family and closet friends a

The friend you want me to be
The friend you need me to be
And it's not for lack of effort
Because I really do try
Some things are just hard for me
And sometimes I don't know what to do
It's not my fault
That we live so far apart
And I know that's harder for you
Than it is for me
But even so, I give you all I can
And I know it's not good enough
But it's my best.
And I wish you knew how much you make me smile
When you call me beautiful
How much I love to hear your voice
How much I love you and everything about you
And I will never love anything more
But you should also know
How much you make me cry
The reason my parents call me a "moody teenager" is you
(But they don't know that)
(I blame my tears on books)
My thoughts have become deadly because of you
And now I know just how much

With those to do your bidding like machines
You influence those around you by your mouth
And you stay up north while they sink down south
Obtaining the Power is difficult and almost eternal
The only fastest way is vile and will be an infernal
Those who oh so desire it and devour its delicious content
Will face other forces, filled insanity and immense resent
First thing's first, start with lies, trickery and deceit
That's the easiest way to begin your crime, a simple cheat
Befuddle those around you, a messy web has been created
Mistrust and suspicion will bloom and you will be hated
Second, go with a little blackmail, that's a useful tactic
Do this and that in exchange of what you want, didactic
Get yourself some "friends" to carry out your goal and mission
And don't forget to grab a hostage, that's always a tradition
Proceed to murder if it isn't giving your enemies a scare
It'll really drive them crazy to the brink of intense despair

And all that is left,

You are not a Queen,
Not the Queen you wished to be.
You are a drama queen.
