SpacesI think Ive finally found it, a better way to look at my position. Sure Im invisible, I know Im not the only one who feels that way. But as of now, I wonder if I really want that to change.
Think of it this way:

Its not as easy as reading this sentence is it?
Wait did that say anything? Looks like its missing some letters and spacing no?
Lets try and fix that.
-Now try to read this one
Easier? Lets hope.
Now try something, imagine every person you see is a letter, it doesnt matter what letter. Lets use J as an example.
All right, thats one person. But they alone cant make a decent word, hes going to need some other people beside him.
Now we have a word! But still, wouldnt he look better with other words next to him? Other groups of people?
Miroku's Song"Ladies and Gentleman, we will now take a short intermission, thank you again for coming out to our KARAOKE NIGHT!!!" thanked the announcer, slipping back behind the red-velvet curtain. I applauded with the others, as the light came back on. Kagome had decided to bring us all here, to this event. She said it would be a lot of fun, and, so far, it had been!

"Sango!" I turned, startled.
"Sango, let's go get popcorn, or better yet, CANDY!!!" Shippo said, bouncing slightly. I smiled and nodded my consent. Kagome and InuYasha shared a grin, instantly making me nervous. I'd been brought here with little to no information about this night, only with Kagome's pleading, and now-? Miroku stood and stretched.
"I think I'll go for a walk." the houshi grinned heading towards the door. I was by his side in a flash.
"Where do you think you're going?" I asked, sounding a little accusatory, I'll admit.
He smiled, "The bathroom!" I eyed him, not believing the womanizing l

A year ago he would never have believed that his curse would be lifted, that he would be married to the most independent and fearsome woman hed ever met, and that he was finally going to have the heir hed always dreamed of. Hed barely met Sango by this time the previous year, and their initial introduction did not look good. She was seriously injured by the same fiend he and his group was looking for, but due to a cruel trick, she thought that it was InuYasha that had slain everyone in her village. Fortunately for all of them, the hanyou was not the cruel destructive beast that so many made him out to be. In fact, even though he was attacked first, he refused to fight any more than was necessary to protect himself. In the end, hed stopped her and then helped save her. Hed shown her the truth in what had happened to her village, and as a result, she had joined them in the hunt.A New Life We Await For7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

The Cruel Path to Your Arms
The sun shone brightly in the blue sky above. The wind blew gently through the field of pink and white flowers. A girl, perhaps in her twenties, but still very young, sat quietly in this field, her head raised to the clouds above her. With her knees gathered close to her bosom by a wrapped arm, she held her head upwards with the aide of her arm which rested on her knee. It didn't seem as if she was sad, and it didn't seem as if she were lonely. On the contrary, she seemed to bask in her thoughts, whether good or bad. This was what the young monk standing nearby gathered.
It had been a year since Sango had last seen her brother, Kohaku. Every day she had worried fervently for her brother. What was he up to? Where was he now? Is he safe? All these questions prodded the young exterminator's mind. Now gazing up at the

So when you cheer me up,
when you comfort me,

Love is gone,
hope is on the way,
happiness never made it through the door,
and joy didn't receive an invitation.
The champagne and roses were supposed to help,
but they only serve as painful reminders.
Your blood stains the carpets,
for I didn't have control.
The windows cease to allow any clue to the outside world,
the doors are beyond repair.
You looked so sad
as you said those last words
"I love you."
I wish I could have stopped,
I wish I had given you what you always wanted,
but it was too much to handle.
I will remain in this decapitated home forever,
as my memories haunt me.

I was born from the ashes of a solemn memory
And no matter where I go
This scar is here to burn
I live life to the fullest
And Every day I'm told this
But tell me what's a rose without it's thorns
No wonder they say love is blind
I'm in a permanant bind
No way to fly
No place to cry
It's almost like I'm locked up in my boyfriend's eyes
I look in the mirror and all I see are shapes and scars
I have no motivation
Even if you think someone is perfect
They're not and I know this
For a plain dark memory can haunt a person for eternity

Calling my name
Singing it softly
All together with the music
Hes calling for me
I just know it
Its not a game
Hes calling for me
His eyes as a burning flame
Trying to catch mine
But I cant see him
I want to find him
I can hear the violins
The music so sweet
His voice calling
Through the music
I cant see him
But I feel him everywhere
I cant describe it
But I hear every tone of his voice
Hes calling for me
So sweet and innocent
Full of passion and hope
He actually wants me near
Ive never felt this way
And I wish to hold him in my arms
But then I realize
It was only my imagination.
Miroku Sango ALL DA WAYMiroku Sango ALL DA WAY9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It was a quiet night. The first after a long string of late, loud ones. It was nice to simply lay down to sleep as the stars winked at them from above. Sango sighed as she kept watch. She hadn't been assigned it, but it seemed appropriate since Inuyasha might be distracted by Kagome and end up not watching as closely as he should.
She also sighed because they had one more shard, or so Kagome reckoned, before they completed the Shikon no Tama. Soon their ordeal would be over. But how were they to find that last piece? Sango shifted to see more of the sky as she pondered. Miroku adjusted in his sleep to the new angles, momentarily tightening his arms around her.
That was another reason why she sighed. While he was by no means reformed, Miroku had become more tolerable in his advances and Sango had let him advance. It was hard to let someone in, after her ordeals, but Miroku didn't demand to know why she tried to kill him in her sleep. He simply offered her a shoulder to cry upon when she

Dewdrops left behind gracing tiny petals
Floating in pools of looking-glass water,
Freshly created by an on-going shower.
Blossoms of perfect pink,
The same shade as her toenails;
On this brilliant day, two walk alone.
The world rotates at perfect pace, as
Hearts beat faster and emotions shine through.
The tender shade of his heart is
A tint he only shows to her.
They embrace as only people in love may,
Caught up in their enchanting emotions;
The world is a witness to their longing.
And all at once, they do the one thing
And suddenly the world stops spinning.
Everything is silent for
One single second.
All eyes are on them.
The rain stops in mid-air,
Waiting for a signal,
Contemplating their next move…
She leaves his side as
The rain begins again,
Now only a soft sprinkle.
Once again everything is in motion,
And life dances on,
Their last kiss,
Their last act of affection.
Their only goodbye.

Raven black hair, a green skirt, her voice drifting on the wind in a playful laugh. Inuyasha! Inuyasha! Her hair wrapped around her face before being blown off, giving the girl a mystical look about her before the edge of the cliff appeared behind her as she ran backwards, keeping an eye on the group. Inuyasha! Her voice changed from laughter to fear, from playful to frightful. He had tried to grab her, his clawed hand just brushing her fingertips as she fell. The last time he would touch her, the last time he would see her was when she was falling down that cliff into the miasma stream below, screaming his name out as she clawed at the air with flailing hands, trying desperately to grab onto something, anything.
Then, she was gone.
No, not gone. She was never gone, never. The scent of her still lingered in his clothes, and that vision of her falling, screaming his name for help, him unable to save her, still haunted him whenever he closed his eyes. He hadnt slept sin

Sometimes, I act like I've never met you before because I'm afraid of losing the excitement of falling in love. I once heard that everyone is just looking for the next big thing someone brighter and better than me. You've already started calling me "annie," because you got bored with my real name.

This love that we have has to stay hidden
Tight lips and closed minds speak that its forbidden
Sweep it under the ruglock it behind doors
Our love is much too different from yours.
We cant let the world see us, they wont understand
Theyve told us the price, they told us their demands
If were caught we face the chance of social suicide
Outcast well be, thats why we must hide.
The stars are out tonight and so is the moon
Well stay in our hiding place for its much too soon
To check and see if theres monsters under the bed.
Its always much safer in the closet instead.

And she's always been a
distant tempest storm,
colliding violently against
the crags of mountains and cliffs,
waiting patiently for someone
to come break on her event horizon.
The only love that she has ever known
was a phoenix feather that
burned out much too fast,
flaring resplendently before
crumbling into ashes and dust
in the cupped palm of her hand,
which she cradled gently to her breast
for a moment before thrusting it between
the gaping cracks in her ribcage
so that it could never blow away.
Until him, she always believed
that she was the center
of her own universe and that
the cosmos trembled when she shook.
But he taught her that she
is really just the moon,
a girl with satellite eyes,
gravitating around a planet
orbiting something so much bigger.

It's eleven ten on a Friday night, and I'm sitting in the middle of the grass, watching the downpour spill off the roof. My t-shirt is clinging to my ribcage, and my hair is sticking to my face.
