Because Writing Keeps Me Human Just because it is burning my mind, and it holds a grenade that blasts everything I have into remnants of his musky scent; because I feel like I'm gagging, except that I'm coughing poems and vomiting metaphors; because words can be a crumpled piece of paper drowned in tears, and every poem written can be blended into fiction; and because my limbs feel like they had been devoured by the lava in the words and the music notes I play sink deep between the piano keys, and apparently banging the keys does not help silencing the empty screams at night.Because Writing Keeps Me Human17 hours ago in Emotional More Like This
Because the clock seems to slow down whenever I am planting your name in ink and paper; and because nobody ever listens to me the way poetry do; because poetry sees the "warning: fragile, handle with care" sign on me and knows that I break easily; because I can sculpt him into dreams and heavens and he will never know he exists in poems

Ring around the rosie
Life never lasts long. It's just the way things are. But when the plague came and whipped across the planet, life became shorter. It became a gift, a present given to you by the deity that was watching you. But by no means does that mean the deity will stay. The luck they give you is now limited.
Those who die shock awake, becoming nothing less of a monster. Biting into loved ones, strangers, children and their mothers, sons protected by fathers. They weren't picky.
Survivors of this disease flock from city to city in an endless chase of cat and mouse, having no clear purpose in life other than to serve as food for the creatures that roam free. Everything changes; smell being a big one. From smoke and sweat and the occasional lavender or other flowery scent to raw flesh, the sting of iron that pierces your nostrils, and pure garbage. Not pleasant, but to be expecte

Now the devil won't leave me alone
It's almost like I found a friend
Who's in it for the bitter end
Our consciences are always so much heavier than our egos
I set my expectations high
So nothing ever comes out right
Wait one fucking moment, is that (y/n) singing? I mean, yeah it is, I can see that, but still.
So shoot a star on the boulevard tonight
I think I'll figure it out with a little more time
But who needs time...
Turn off the lights, turn off the lights
Turn on the show for me tonight
I've got my heavy heart to hold me down
Once it falls apart my head's in the clouds
So I'm taking every chance I got
Like the man I know I'm not

Step 1: Look in the mirror.
Step 2: Realize you've always been beautiful.
You are who you are. You're beautiful. Weight doesn't define beauty. Beauty comes in many shapes, sizes, and colors.
Don't let anyone fool you into thinking you aren't beautiful.
Don't change for anyone. Don't wish to be like anyone else.

"Hey Lauren, after you finish restocking the shelves, can you put the new clothes on the mannequins in the women's department before closing up," Ashley asked, or more commanded as she finished emptying the last group of registers in Carter's, the largest department store in the Main St. Mall, "I've got to get home in time for a date with Chad."
"Oh, okay," Lauren said hesitatingly as she put a stack of folded jeans onto their proper shelf.
"That is, unless you have something you have to be at...a date, going out with friends, anything..." Ashley was clearly once again passive aggressively taunting Lauren for her usual lack of social activity and relationships. She wasn't exactly the 'social butterfly' that most of the people who worked in her department. Mostly because she didn't have the same confidence as the others...while most of them were high school or even college cheerleaders and the like, she was a bit more booky. In fact, some of her co-worker

The child in front of my seat cried very loudly, disturbing some of the passengers on board. it was only an hour in from leaving the ground and flying in the air and I was far too tired from the meeting I had in the Los Angeles to even tolerate the child's crying. If I were Levi, I might be telling the mother of the child to shut the kid up, but I had no energy to that. Just then, a young flight attendant came running along in her pencil skirt and high heels, clicking along the aisle. She was very attractive, and she pulled her index finger on the scarf wrapped around her neck, so she could breathe. i was fully expecting her to politely tell the mother to get the fuck up and move out from the seats—something along the lines of, "Excuse me, ma'am, if you could please step out towards the restrooms and calm you child down..."

Mentioning Captain Lonán
Early Spring, Year 759 of the New Age
Glenmore, The Glenwood
Well. That explained a lot.
Yet he had never been more confused in his entire life.
Drustan came to a panting halt in the middle of the forest, shaking his head in disbelief. What had he just seen?! His mind played over the scene again, but it was nothing he could even fathom. It had to be a dream, the most bizarre dream he’d ever had, because everything about it was the complete opposite to the world at large.
It had started with him following Lonán’s trail; his brother had tried slipping away thinking Drustan wasn’t watching, but Lonán’s behaviour had been bothering him for moons. His suspicious absences and strange moods, and Drustan’d finally ma

“Oh you swim too?”
You yelped and almost tripped. Rin quickly grabbed your arm and lifted you up. You thanked him and took a step back, suddenly feeling a bit awkward. He took no notice of your weird behavior and slung an arm around your shoulder.
“Oi Matsuoka! Come over to introduce yourself”
Rin let go of your shoulder and grinned at you before walking over to the huge crowd. You sat down at the edge of the pool and looked deeply at the water. A few bubbles floated near you. Haru jumped out of the pool and sat on the edge as well.
“The water is calm today…”
Haru silently agreed and dipped his hands into the water. You did the same and flutter kicked in silence. While Rin was introducing himself, he averted his glance from the crowd to you. He couldn’t help but feel a bit annoyed that Haru sitting next to you.

Red walked around the living trying to calm down. He was rubbing his hands together and breathing fast.
"Red don't worry my family will like you, especially my little brother! He's a big fan of you, but be careful with my dad he's a very protective father..." you trailed off.
"Can Hana come?" Red asked nervously.
"Why?" you asked.
"If I pass out, Hana can have Ace carry me home. Plus she's very good at convincing people and if she needs to convince your dad she can."
You rolled your eyes and sighed. 'Sometimes Red is such a idiot' you thought. 'But that's why I love him'
You brought out your phone and called me. "Hey Hana can you come with us to meet my parents?" I sighed. "No." I hung up the phone.
"Oh Red my dad battles people I date so you should expect him to challenge you," I smiled when I saw a smirk on his face. Let's just hope dad doesn't throw out his OP Charizard. I swear the god if he does, he's gonna get it.

He had hoped that perhaps Lalnable would have been killed in the attacks, but just his luck... This wasn't the first time he had had a run in with Lalnable. No, the first time he was rather pleasant. He was more of a funny sort of crazy back than. Not much unlike Duncan himself.
At the time, they had been defending Duncan's castle from the first fleet of nagas and Duncan had been, unfortunately, drunk. But Lalnable was there upon a visit from Lewis asking what he should do with him and the two geniuses had worked together to fend off the snake-like beasts. Lalnable had helped him rebuild the damaged parts of his castle, too. He'd given him the idea for where to put his flux as well.
Duncan wasn't sure what had happened that had made the clone go insane, but whatever it was, D

Wow, you guys must be drowning in hate mail right now, huh? Taking away people getting perks after donating to servers, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? Why would you want everybody to have an “equal experience” in Minecraft? Haven’t you ever been on a multiplayer game before? Haven’t you ever met that loud 5-year-old kid who laughs in a high-pitched squeak everytime he shoots you with the best gun in the entire stupid game that Daddy unlocked for the spoiled little brat? You obviously haven’t, but let me speak for everyone who has. That feeling is terrible, and it’s worth donating money to get a perk so you can show this kid who’s the boss. Or you can have some psycho track his IP and show up at his house with a baseball bat. Don’t doubt me, I’ve heard that it actually happened to somebody. You'll be doing a public service and helping the kid out.

A high-pitched whistle was blown in a quick, sharp burst, causing the people around me under the shade of the pavilion to venture out into the morning sunlight. Not wanting to seem like a black sheep, I fastened my Camelback around my shoulders and hurried onto the field. I spotted Marco holding up his hand and calling, “Clarinets, over here!”
There were a good twenty or so people in the section, all of which saving Armin and Marco being girls. Armin was going over a sheet of paper in a blue binder, and Marco was counting the members of the section. He stopped when his eyes fell on me, and he smiled and said, “Morning, _____,” then resumed counting.
“Looks like everyone’s here,” he said to Armin, who scribbled something down before putting away the paper and setting the binder on the ground.
“Today we’re just going to go over marching fundamentals,” said Armin. “I know you all probably know al

"Welcome, child." Slenderman said to you. "Thank you." You replied. "I am Slenderman but you may call me Slender." Slenderman introduced himself. "I'm (Y/N)." You replied. "You have quite a beautiful manor." You complimented with a warm smile. If Slender had a mouth, he'd probably be smiling too. "Thank you, child." Slenderman said.
Then you were tackled to the ground. "Nice to see you, again." You heard a familiar voice. You opened your eyes to see a familiar face. It was Jeff, and he had his knife as he smirked at you. "Ready to go to sleep?" Jeff asked. But then Jeff was lifted into the air by one of Slender's tendrils. "Don't even think about it, Jeffery." Slender said sternly. Hoodie went over to you and helped you up. "Are you o-okay?" He asked, a
