1. It's easier when you don't think.
1. It starts early,
on a cloudy day when you recall
the 'childhood memories' of
two summers ago,
that's when you start your backslide into
2. On the bright side
you won't notice this until you're
good and ripe in age,
so maybe it doesn't matter
3. That tightness in your chest?
The feeling that you're not ready
to take on the rest of your life; it
4. It stews in the pit of your stomach
makes you doubt,
but there will be days when you look back
on the mountains you climbed -
the raging rivers your crossed -
and you'll have a sneaking suspicion you were
more prepared than you thought.
5. There's nothing like your own bed.
6. Laundry will never smell right
without mom's sweat and tears.
But you still have to separate lights from darks,
keep the zippers pulled tight
and the buttons unhooked.
7. There is comfort in your parents' presence.
8. Things change
the future gnaws and rips
Yes, Sir (Drunk!Levi x Reader)Yes, Sir (Drunk!Levi x Reader)4 hours ago in Romance More Like This
A night in New York City. Supposedly the proud parent of romantic encounters around the numerous landmarks, gigantic blow out parties in the hottest night clubs, and the ritziest people found on every high end block.
Now, if someone could explain how that translated to you dragging a drunken Mr. Ackerman home, that would be just lovely.
Beginnings are the best place to start things, so let's roll back a few hours. The annual company bash was in full swing, the windows of the office's lobby reverberating with the noise. You weren't sure if a single coworker was sober outside yourself. Even the sullen Mikasa had a pink tint to her cheeks, and the company's President, Erwin, looked a bit tipsy.
The law-firm of Rose, Sina, and Maria were celebrating their fifth year of being an economic empire. The money couldn't be stopped from rolling in, and said circumstances meant bonuses. Everyone had a reason to celebrate the extra change in their pockets. You had planned for the event for an extens

The girl with her hair over her face,
Who hides in the back of the class,
Who veils herself with anonymity.
We are the victims, the wreckage,
The boy, beaten and broken,
Tossed aside, for another bully to abuse,
The child who never had a friend.
We are the ones you pity,
The girl who cuts her soul,
Every time she looks in the mirror,
The face looking back her nightmare.
We are the ones who were worthless,
The boy who never liked sports,
Who mused on words, who crafted poems,
Who was the pariah for not liking violence.
We are the ones you never hear.
We don't fill the world with endless chatter,
We don't speak every idle thought.
We bide our time, let it simmer within.
We are the ones you remember,
The girl with striking eyes, wise yet young.
The boy who never could stop the music,
The person of color.
We are the ones you hate.
We are different, the children of Creation.
We are the ones you bully, the ones
You can't bear to see successful
We are the ones you

“Hey (f/n),” Eren nudged you, causing you to turn towards the titan shifter. “Look at Corporal Levi.”
You did as he said, and oddly, his face was flushed red, and he seemed to be… heavily breathing.
“Do you think he’s sick?” The green-eyed boy asked, concern painting his features.
“Mm, I don’t know, but he probably is. I wonder why he came to dinner like that.” Your tone grew somewhat sad.
“Whatever it is, he deserves it,” Mikasa grimaced at her food, her hate for Levi still going strong.
You stirred the white cream soup in front of you, resting your head on a bent elbow. You didn’t exactly understand why you seemed to care so much, but it just felt right somehow. You were often asked to deliver paperwork to his office, and Levi never really seemed to be annoyed by your presence. You also sometimes liked to start a discussion with him here and there, but he usually responded with disinteres

Do you love me now?
If you ever did
Can you tell me how?
How you could leave me
And love someone new
Was it really that easy
To leave me and you
You live in our house
And sleep in our room
While I share with a mouse
In a depressing gloom
I still have your picture
The one where you laugh
When you loved me for sure
And we didn’t have a past
I still catch a whiff
Of your love and perfume
But if I step off this cliff
I will be with you soon
So meet me at the end
And we’ll ride off together
And our souls will mend

"Mr. Slender, why you don't have a face?" you asked, licking your strawberry ice cream.
"I don't really know how to explain it to you, child." Slenderman responded.
"Well... I was born like this."
You gasped, "I can draw you a face!"
You nodded, "Uh-huh! Lemme go get my paints!"
"Done!" you smiled and handed him a mirror.
Slender took the mirror and examine how his face looks like.
He had two large black eyes and a massively happy grin.
I Can't Love All of YouI only loved youI Can't Love All of You7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
out of desperation -
I ran toward you and tried
to grasp your hand only
to make you my reason
to keep breathing
But you let go of me
and I hit my head on the floor hard,
really hard, far, far too hard
for someone with brittle bones like me,
and I woke up
I don't have what it takes
to love someone
I love him like a trophy,
and the others only for their
sculpted curves hidden from my hands,
and the rest not for the skin
they live in, but the stars
in their eyes
I am not a person that can
love all of someone
from their bones and raw flesh
to their sparkling galaxies and
their laughter and their scars
I only love part of
every one of them,
so, in the end, I guess
I don't love any of them

"Are you sure this is a good idea Hanji?" You asked while looking at your commander.
"Of course it is! Don't worry, it's good to get the Corporal to loosen up sometimes." Hanji replied while running across Levi's office with streamers.
"Is it even his birthday? What's the point in this?" You asked. She rolled her eyes and continued to run around the room.
"Come on (y/n)! Help me with this!" She shouted while throwing you a roll of streamers. You sighed and taped one end of the streamers on the wall, then started to walk around the room. "(y/n)..."
"What? I'm doing it!"
"Yeah, but you need to put more excitement into it! Run around!" She said while twirling around. You face palmed, and started to run around the room. "I swear, you're just like Levi sometimes, just have fun once in a while!" She nudged you with her elbow.
I guess she's right, I'll enjoy this while I can. You thought while smirking. You then sprinted pass Hanji, twirling and jumping around with the streamers in you

A thousand times, we die in one life.

Why did things have to come to this?
At this point, you don’t even know who you are. Who had you been? Who will you be? And when they release him, will you still be the same person?
You shuddered. You didn’t even want to think about him. You had someone else now. Someone… that you belonged with.
A few months ago, your life took a turn for the worst—in the sharpest way possible. You had never felt more betrayed, lied to, or ignored. It was only natural for you to turn to someone like him.
Someone rebellious. Someone strong. Someone who would protect y

Soon you will be as free as a bird
You will feel no more strife
When tonight I end your life
Please don't struggle with your fear to express
I don't want to make a mess
Just lay still and it'll be fast
I promise your pain, it won't last
Breath deeply and come with me
Come my dear and let's be free
Do not scream and do not weep
Come with me to eternal sleep
You won't bleed for too much longer
After this we'll both be stronger
Don't worry darling, it's just as planned
Let us walk hand in hand
Have no fear, just wait for the spark
As we walk into the dark

You, a seventeen year old, were one of the 'best' babysitters in your city. Parents would almost literally throw money at you to babysit their kids. The reason for the quotes around the word best is because, you weren't that good. You didn't even like kids, but it did pay. That was all that mattered.
Those who truly knew you, would call you a troubled teen. You didn't believe that though. You felt that others thought, just because you weren't clean cut and perky, that you were troubled. You weren't. Sure, you might stay out late, cussed out a few adults before, and have a drink or two with friends. You didn't think those were grounds to call you troubled. Your parents thought you were fine.
Their names were Tino and Berwald. You thought you t

Your eyes are becoming
The stars up above
Are singing a song
And the moon in the sky
Shines so bright and strong

Safe and warm
Away from the thunder
And rain from the storm
Nothing can hurt you
While I am here
So close your eyes

[TGB] Leave The Light OnIt seemed only natural that she found him.[TGB] Leave The Light On4 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Her paws had been weary, her mind restless - home no longer felt like home and he .... he had always had a calming presence upon her soul. His smirking blue-green eyes soothed a fire in her soul and made everything shift when she hadn't been aware it was askew in the first place.
He held her steady, whether he knew it or not and right now Arya felt like a leaf in a thunderstorm.
"Fancy seeing you again - if I didn't know any better I'd say you missed my dashing looks."
Perhaps it was in the way Arya fumbled for an appropriate response, or perhaps it was how her grass eyes misted over with unshed tears - full to the brim with emotion Arya usually kept hidden from her companion.
"Arya?" His brow furrowed slightly and he took a hesitant step forward. His firefly was strong ... for her to be so shaken ...
She wasn't sure when the tears had started, hadn't noticed their slow descent down her cheeks until Idek's nose was touchin

You see my accomplishments as something that is expected, and my failures as something so unbelievable.
You say doing my best is good enough. You lied. I try my hardest, but to you it doesn't matter unless I'm perfect.
I try my hardest to live up to your expectations, your goals, your dreams, and it has exhausted me.
Working hard for something I don't want is spectacularly awful, yet knowing that if I don't succeed your disappointment will be even worse is difficult.
For once I'd like to have my own expectations, my own goals, my own dreams.
I want to become the person I want to be, not the one you've tried to create.
Light in the DarknessTime seemed to move by faster than one could bat an eye. The days slipped into the evenings, blurred into the nights, rolled into the dawn at such a high rate of speed that Idek could scarcely discern one moment from the next. He hunted only when necessary, fraternized with the Tribes only when forced. His grasp upon life seemed to be ever slipping, and time had no place in the world that he lived in. Life proceeded at its own pace while he was always lagging behind . . . but the Black-Shadow could not bring himself to care.Light in the Darkness3 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Only when he was in her presence did time seem to enter his mind. Everything slid into place when they were together, the world stood still and things made sense again. Strange how Idek thought everything was fine and as it should be until Arya was near. The instant he could see her, could hear her voice, the realization that he was hardly living would hit him.
Not that he had any desire to socialize.
She completed him in that weird, stupid way that he liked to den

When I hear your name
my lungs start to forget the taste of air.
My mind escapes reality for a bit.
And chases the dreams I've painted for us.
When you hold my hand
my stomach screams with butterflies made from ecstasy.
They dance around me,
every time we're together.
When you hold me in your arms
I no longer feel lost.
My heart becomes clear of the world's sorrows.
When I look into your eyes
I see the beauty the world has to offer.
I can taste hope.
I can touch dreams.
And know it's all so real.
We're Being Adopted By TC?! Chapter One: Hi!Hello! My name is Zexy Zek, and I have been an orphan since I was five, ever since my parents died in a fire. I don't remember much about them, just a small piece of memory from the night of the fire. But, I don't like to think about it, so let's move on, shall we? I live in a nice enough orphanage, the owner is nice to us and cooks us really, really good food. I have a friend named Tyler, who is my age, fourteen. He has black framed glasses and brown eyes and the same colored hair. I myself have black hair, which covers one eye, while my eyes are red! I really like my eyes, no matter what anyone says to me. My favorite outfit is a black-and-dark-blue-checkered flannel jacket over a red shirt, jeans, and black sneakers. I love to play Minecraft, me and Tyler both do!
