Lies, plastic and sharp
Wrought around a pale complexion
Just the way he speaks it, enough to gag a maggot
The soft crisp turns of his tongue
Such a bitter excuse lain bare
Ever watching as the skin peels forth, floating into space from his once soft complexion
This self destruction brings forth the serenity
Only found inside the fragments of a once vibrant heart
As the world melts away, one vowel at a time
The piano cords ring out with each gentle touch of his finger
A skill he began for her, only half found now
Still, the echoes of violin parody and giggles lay strong
Fog to an ever stumbling thought, never to pass or fade
Like an unchanging streetlight, in an intersection plagued with people
Disgusting creatures of filth, like a bottle of tonic, filled with vomit and sold at full price
He still melts inside
The stars grow old, dimming in the brightening night
A soft purple overlay settles with every blinking eye
Another night passed into day before a sleep

It runs through my veins
Like liquid fire
Causing so much pain,
Yet bringing such joy
Flowing through my muscular heart
And stright into my thoughtful brain
Giving me life
It is the blood of time
Carrying me out of the past
And propelling me into the unending future.

Broken and hollow as the snow falls slowly
Raps and spinning rhymes circle through the air
Buzzed and broken with that warm feeling I remember so clearly
His voice ringing out in the back seat
Something comforting about knowing that hell remember me
Your gorgeous eyes water with emotionless care as I fall back into comfort
Foot to the floor and take that turn right
The trust is enough to fill the room with euphoria
Our best was like acid to their skin
Dont you know how I fell over every curb just to think about your touch?
Save me, save me, dramatize me
I was king to it and you would hand me the sword with a smile and a worry
Heres to times we wont have again
Heres to what coulda been
Heres to now and heres to then
Heres to you
Torn and stupid over obnoxious lines and flirtatious retardation
Shit, I told you, you just didnt see me standing there

Hundreds of children yelling, screaming.
Horrified wails that deafen you.
The fear is tangible,
So thick you can’t breathe,
The shame of a thousand souls.
And then, midst the howling,
A faint cry of hope,
A baby that has not yet fallen.
A child that hasn’t been tainted,
And the evil seems to be gone.
Then a cry from the child.
His voice joins the torment.
Screaming. All hope is gone.
When I hear your lovely laugh,
And gaze in your beautiful eyes,
I long to feel the warmth of your touch,
And light your face with a smile.
I make a joke, you laugh, you smile.
My heart is filled with joy.
The color in your velvet cheeks
Paints my heart with love.
But my heart overflows,
As you laugh and laugh.
My heart breaks, and the love
Runs down my cheeks
Into my trembling hands.
And you laugh.
A smile, a wink,
A giggle, a laugh,
Then you glare me down,
Cut my heart in half.
The tears cannot clean
The cut that you made.
The sorrow can't fill
The hole in my so
Emo Hearts and Suicidal PoetryOutcasts they tend to call us,Emo Hearts and Suicidal Poetry9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The wierd ones,
But we like to think of ourselves as the special ones
With our permanent-marker doodles on our converses
Ripped jeans and emo hearts and suicidal poems written in the snow
Novels read beneath the covers 'til dawn by light of a flashlight
[batteries nearly dead we've used it so many times before]
And dancing in the rain
Praying to Beethoven
And tears at dusk
And singing to the stars
At the top of our lungs with the car windows open and the night rushing in
Or on the top floor of a beach house with the sea stretched out before us
"Go home, you lose, good day, sir"
Turn around and say good bye
Gum-wrapper bracelets and crying to the moon
Glasses and braces and beautiful eyes
Sad behind the smiles
And sitting in the corner to escape the staring eyes
But we live for funny looks because they remind us that we are special
Man, we are special.
We aren't the outcasts, for we know how to live.
For we know what to do with ourselves

Hypervigilance and PTSDOne of the diagnostic criteria for PTSD is hypervigilance. Hypervigilance is watchfulness or checking one's surroundings that is over and above what is normal or reasonable. Hypervigilance takes many forms. It is what makes some of us always choose an aisle seat or one where our back is to a wall. It's what makes some of us carry defensive weapons such as guns, knives, mace or pepper spray, a police whistle or a mobile phone set to 999. It makes some of us cross the street to avoid suspicious people. Some of us have alarm systems, multiple locks, window locks, high fences, guard dogs, etc. Another form of hypervigilance is studying people very carefully in an attempt to look deeply into their soul to determine exactly what they are made of. Hypervigilance is included in the cluster of symptoms referred to as "increased arousal". This cluster also includes difficulty sleeping, irritability or outbursts of anger, difficulty concentrating, and exaggerated startle response.Hypervigilance and PTSD5 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Heart tick tick ticking
Perspiration cold against the neck
Foreheads on fire
Palms clammy cool
Prickles down the arm
Head's pounding ringing
A human fire alarm
Concentration will refrain
Stress will take over
Scattering the brain,
Here there everywhere,
Recycling the thoughts
the past has embedded
In the mind.
Play Rewind. Play Rewind.
A twisted sitcom
Change the channel,
I've seen this one.
Take the remote,
Before it comes back,
Turn off this panic attack.

rastered, the pupils,
to purchase his latest attire,
staff surgeon urging
to get one autograph, searching
for crib notes while
listen. Light leans are for show.
Heavy forwards are twists. Heavy back,
Remember. Mastering the air is a pipe dream.
What does that mean?
Listen. Do an Ollie Mctwist
with an Indy. Don't forget attitude.
Pay attention to the breeze, because
only fools blindly follow
the coy seductress -
pop off the jump
struggling to pull another trick
for provocative photographers
thoughts of doom hidden behind a devil grin
though it doesnt matter
because once you're
in air its all about slight angles
correct manuovers flirting
with rocky ice approaching
that makes the difference between a phat jump
and your neck snapping.

I may design a plane one day.
I may switch majors anyway.
The clouds bustling, dark cotten blanket filling the earth poured.
Poured blood on the walls poured light to the sky and never let the wings even wobble.
Totter and wiggle.
Weak and frail.
Food chain devolution.
Scopes, hopes, antelopes.
Mango sky and soft rock red,
I found my friends they're in my head.
Moonlight rising every night and.
Some are right and.
Lap dance. Licks and tickles, shits and giggles.
Cussing for the first time, dreaming for the last time.
I wonder what it'd be like to live out in the sky. Above the clouds, but under the moon, the stars, and the sun.
And black outside. And cold and pressure and density and volume.
And when will this blue sky...\
run out of room..
Fluttering steel, crashing thunder.
Thoughts of dying and going under.
Brakes are faulty.
When will we all see.
The stars as they should be.
Thirty thousand is time indeed. Full

Chapter 10: Draeconik Kingdom
Sakuya sat up from the bed in which she was lying in and groaned from exhaustion. She had never liked being unconscious and this was no exception; it was dark where she was and even though her eyes had adapted to it, she still had problems to take in the new surrounding. The walls were of some kind of fabric and the whole place was filled with items one would expect to find in a tribal-like settlement. At least it calmed her down to see some of her friends sitting on the ground, chatting.
"Good morning Sakuya!" Riku greeted her when he saw that she had woken up, and the others turned to her upon the announcement.
"Had a good sleep?" Roka asked and gave Sakuya a sandwich with some kind of jam coated on it, "Try this! Its falasa bread with guapao berry jam!"
"Where are we? And where are Allie and Alex? Saiko?" Sakuya wondered.

Organization what I can really do…You and you, here!"
"Yes, sir?" Two men cloaked in old black robes saluted.
"Bring the blonde kid here," Syne ordered, "I have business to discuss with him…"
Within the grey walls, there were tally marks abound. The boys' Negare side effects have
worsened. Dark flesh had reached up to Zenji's eyes, Raisuke's legs had claws and hard
scales, and Kaitou's arms spiked with steel-like protrusions and even bigger clawed hands.
The two men ordered to retrieve Kaitou pulled him out of the cell. The other two merely
sat in the cage, unknowing and unfeeling. Kaitou never fought and was only dragged to the
leader. The spell had drowned any feeling of hope.
"Hmph…There must be a reason why you're not producing any memories…" Syne muttered.

Suddenly, the doors swung open…but there was noone there who could have opened them, the gang hesatated alittle to walk into the tower but Asuna just walked right into it and the party walked after her into the white tower and a set of lustrous crystal stairs met their eyes among all the white pillars and decorations. Asuna stepped forward and looked up with half-worry, "Then we climb to the top the tower—"
"WHAT!? YOU'RE KIDDING!" Saiko howled as she examined the stairs leading upward.
"What now, Saiko? Too much exercise for you now?" Sakuya teased. Saiko shook her head and stomped up to ignore the Keyblade wielder.
Asuna was startled, "H-Hey, you should go up there without me—"
"Do I look retarded to you? Stairs are something you climb—What the!?" Saiko was climbing, but the stairs spiraled down each time she stepped. Hence, she was not really climbing the stairs and the group merely chuckled at Saiko's failure, "What

"Are you sure about that?" Sakuya asked the twins as they neared their gummi ship.
"Yeah, we need to check for repairs and whatnot," Alex said, "We need to get it up in about a day or so to get to our destination."
"Yep, I remember the time we didn't repair our ship and we landed in a world full of MARSHMALLOWS!" Allie exclaimed.
"Yeah…uhm, we'll see you guys in a few days then, later!" Alex and Allie waved goodbye to Sakuya as they entered their ship.
The Keyblade wielder found herself meeting up with Aerith and Roka, who were wandering the streets and collecting provisions for the journey ahead. Together they reached the hotel and entered. Aerith, Roka and Sakuya stepped through one of the doors that lead to one of the hotel's bedrooms that the gang had rented. The group settled down with some iced tea, and this time Sakuya and Roka had convinced Aerith to not put anything weird in it like she usually did.

Relena was sitting on the stairs leading into her building, watching as her neighbor and his friend dropped her ruined couch on the side of the road, before collapsing in a sweaty heap.
Perhaps I should have gotten Ludor to help me. I feel bad for these men. Still, I would have preferred to keep the thing.
She had tried her best to get rid of the stains, without success. Where the stains were there were now circles without fabric, her cleaning having grown so fierce as to rip the velvet right off. The couch ended up similar to a large brightly colored Dalmatian.
Now she was abandoning it in the alleyway, letting it be eaten by rats and covered in garbage. While she knew she shouldn't keep up a close relationship with inanimate objects, that couch had been with her for a long time. It was like betraying a friend.
"Do you need us to move anything else, Relena?"
She looked at her neighbor.

When Sakuya was finally shaken of her drowsiness, she remembered more clearly what had happened before she had lost consciousness, Sakuya scanned the room after Sayo or any one else that she knew but unfortunately she didn't see anyone that she had met before...
On the other hand there were some other girls in the room sitting on red leather couches just like the couch she herself was lying on.
The room was huge, and made of some extremely white stone that was polished smoothly. High up on the walls there were some strange markings, and Sakuya tried squinted at them, trying to figure out what they looked like. There were several she could not make out, but she was able to distinguish dragons, racoons, birds, tigers, wolves, butterflies and a few others. The animals were of different colours, to distinguish themselves from others. Some had light tones and others had dark tones.

It's been about five hours of flying through space. Allie and Alex are busy piloting the gummi ship arguing about spastochas and goshpuchas, Sakuya, Arin, and Roka are chattering as they take a snack break, Riku exercising his swordplay along with Saiko.
"Hm, it looks like we won't be landing for awhile. According to the radars, there's no world near here." Alex indicated as she pointed to a glowing circular radar.
"Then…" Allie gripped a red lever, "TURBO BOOST, ACTIVA—GAH!"
"NONE OF THAT!" Alex yelled, "YOU ALMOST GOT US KILLED LAST TIME!"
"So which world would we reach, going in this direction?" Arin asked.
Alex put a huge map on-screen, "Hmm…"
"Wow, that map is huge!" Sakuya exclaimed, "Is this really how big the universe is?"
"Maybe. Dua's cartographers think there could be more out there." Allie added.

When Relena had said that she had plenty of money, she had been lying. At least, she could never have afforded a place like this.
For their third date, Lumaria had taken her to a small restaurant far from the casino, with haughty waiters and candles and a live pianist, who played quiet beautiful music over the low talking of all the couples. There were all rich people with plenty of influence, leaders and businessmen taking their wives and girlfriends out.
I doubt even Ludor could afford a place like this…
Yet, something had been puzzling her about this. Lumaria had told her his shop didn't do much business. But he could afford to take her somewhere like this?
"Tell me Lumaria. What do you really do with your life?"
He nearly choked on his filet mignon. "Ex… Excuse me?"

Chapter 2: Never Surrender
Another day in the life of a bounty hunter. Of course, we're not just talking any bounty hunter; we're talking Kaitou, the most renowned and youngest Heartless bounty hunter in New Asten. Why, at 17, he's killed over 500 Invisibles in one melee battle, which is quite a tough record for anyone in New Asten to beat. He's developed the finest weaponry to fight the Heartless in his world. He even defeated his own father, one of the finest Fleet captains in New Asten, in a duel. So, the credentials make him the most reliable Heartless hunter, always the first one who is always called upon when there is a swarm around. Well, anyway, here we are on Kaitou's gummi ship, Gilgamesh. Our hunter is on patrol duty, along with his apprentice and his team of hunters.
"Not one today?" Kaitou pouted, "Zenji, anything on radar?"
