Only Skin Deep- EscapeBecka struggled and faught to surface out of unconciousness. The darkness was drowning her, crashing down on her again and again. The numbness was slowly leaving her and the pain was filling her. The pain was forcing her awake. Becka groaned in pain as her eyes dragged open. She recognised the basement floor. She was so cold. Her body shivvered as it was face down on the basement floor in a dried puddle of her own blood. She could still taste blood in her mouth.
Flashes of what happened after Demetri left assaulted her mind. Dante had beat her. He had caused her more pain than she had ever felt before. Becka shuddered at the memory of what he had done to her. Her ribs were surely fracture from the force of his punches. She remembered how he had kept telling her that he was doing this to keep her alive.
"If I don't do this. My brother will torture you, and you probably wont survive that. He doesn't know how to hold back like I do." Dante's voice was silk as he used his demonic power

no I am more broken than not

My Better Half.For thousands of years,My Better Half.6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
My soul has walked the earth.
It has felt passion and love,
As much as it has seen blood and tears.
Every body my soul has become,
Has lived a different life,
Over come different things.
But one thing was shared during each life,
Something so special,
So pure & fragile;
My other half.
Whether it had been a short encounter,
Or a life's gesture,
My soul in each life was able to see,
The one it lived for.
I shall never know who I once was,
The great things I did,
Or the wrongs I made,
But I do know that he was the greatest part of my every life.
He was the one thing death could not take,
The one thing words could not break.
My mind & body will most likely never know,
Who he is when I meet him.
But my soul shall jump with glee at his meeting,
For he was, is and always will be,
My better half...
I Forgot About Myself.You swept me off my feet,I Forgot About Myself.6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Promised me everything under the sun.
I fell so quickly & deeply in love,
But I never slowed down to think.
To get you, my prince,
I was willing to pull back on my life,
To let you lead yours through mine,
But I forgot about myself.
We made so many plans,
In them, you were at the top of your dreams,
While I was at the bottom of mine,
That was our future & I was okay with that.
I sat back as a benchwarmer,
Sitting on the sidelines of our lives.
Yet you were the major leaguer,
Hitting all the home runs for the team.
I dropped all of my hopes & dreams for you,
'Cause it meant being with my prince.
I put them inside a tiny drawer;
Today I opened it and remembered the passion I once felt.
My hopes & dreams flew around me like butterflies,
Filled me with happiness & joy again.
I forgot about myself with all this hype of being in love,
I forgot of my morals & beliefs.
I look back now;
I sacrificed so much for us.
You never sacrificed a thing,
It was all me.
Rogue- Chp2 Runnin AgainRogue ran into her room and slammed the door and locked it. She felt the tears spill over her cheeks as she let a future with human contact slip through her naked fingers. She felt that the turmoil would swallow her whole and never let her go. So she reached to feel anything else but heartache and pain. That's when she found anger and bitterness. She let the rage fill her. Rogue let that fuel her heart to beat even when it was frozen.Rogue- Chp2 Runnin Again6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She took the first step to get ready. She changed into jeans, a dark green long sleaved shirt, and black gloves. She then put on her brown leather jacket. She got on her black boots and had to get out. She needed to leave for a little while. Needed to be alone.
She suddenly heard a knock at her door. "Rogue?" it was Logan. He sounded worried. She looked from the door to the window. There was a tree right outside of it. She might be able to make it. Rogue goes to the window and heard footsteps in her room. She turned as she opens the window letting in the
Alone TogetherWe share the dangerAlone Together6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We share the wins
We share the defeats
But we take on the pain on our own
why... are we so damaged
are we so broken
that we can't even take anyone's help
even from each other
I know that the next time one of us dies
the other will soon follow
if not by the hazards of the job
then by will alone
we just can't function without the other
we keep each other sane
as we are driven farther from sanity
by the evil of the world
but through it all
we can not help our pain
we confide in pills and liqueur before we confide in each other
are we so messed up
are we so mentally broken
or do we just not believe that we can ever deserve life without pain
the world doesn't believe we're worth anything but an early grave
is it so messed up that sometimes I agree
that I just want it to be over sometimes
but then I remember I'm just to damned stubborn to go quietly into that good night
So fuck them
We'll suffer through the pain
even if we have to do it alone, together

As darkness filled her soul.
He left her with no goodbye,
With no one to hold.
As she ran through the rain,
Nothing but lightning by her side,
She dropped to her knees,
She screamed, cursed out his name.
He left her with nothing,
And no one even cares.
Hopeless with her heart broken,
She feels his presence,
Yet she still cries all alone.
She lies there,
On the watered ground.
She's waiting for an answer,
Which will never come...

fear of sounding even more wrong

so now I am ever silent
so that my lips can not betray me ever again
such a pity

Rogue 15 HeatAs the elevator rose Rogue felt herself build up her walls again. She knew that Pyro would need her support to take those steps into the manor into the mutants that he left those years ago.

Pyro's eyes locked onto hers as the elevator stopped on the first manor floor. Rogue gave him a reassuring nod. She didn't need to say anything. He knew she was with him in this.
The elevator door opened to reveal Bobby standing on the other side. Rogue saw his eyes widen at the sight of her holding Pyro's hand. The silence hung so heavy in the air that Rogue could feel it.
Rogue looked down to Pyro's thumb resting on the Zippo poised to strike a flame into life if he needed it. Rogue saw Bobby start to raise his hand and she stepped in betwee

She looked down and smiled seeing her gloveless hand. It still made her smile that she was cured. That she could touch. For three months she had been able to touch without endangering anyone. Even the voices in her head had dissipated. She loved how quiet her mind was without those voices whispering or even screaming in her head. Now it was so much easier to study.Rogue-chp 1 the Cure6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

So she took a deep breath and knocked lightly knowing his high seance of hearing would pick it up. She waited a beat and then the door opened to reveal Logan standing in his street clothes. She saw his eyes go nervous at the sight of her. She regretted telling him the way she felt about him. At least he could look at her before. Now... she sighed. "Hey Logan.

Is there life on Mars?

Did Martians smoke cigars?
However, that's not the question that should be ours.
Is there life on Earth?
No one will ever know
All that's left is the lifeless crypt
Where did their souls go?
How much blood was dripped?
Is there life on Earth?

Soulless corpses, the walking dead
Faces that once were
No more love, blood-stained red
What caused this stir?
Greed, lust, I concur.
Is there life on Earth?
The only one, alone he roams, thinking of the lies.
Thinking of his imminent death and mournful birth.
He lays down, weak, and slowly dies.
His last look is at his world, once green and bright, now an ashy hearth.
He is the last man left; but on Mars, or Earth?

I believe that while there are still people on this planet that mean another person harm, there is no way that we can live in peace. I am not suggesting that we eradicate those people, just their ill intent. We should just accept other people for their differences.
I believe that there is a purpose to us being here, though we are never to find out what it is. I am not suggesting that we give up on searching, just stop being so targeted upon the results of the search. We should just do what we want to do in life.
I believe that life is easier than we make it out to be, although we secretly enjoy making it more complicated. I am not suggesting we ease up on the difficulties we create for ourselves, just that we should not whine about them. We should just match our capabilities.
I believe that the word 'love' is thrown around too much, which makes the real thing

Anna was the first girl I saw. Actually saw. The others like Kitty, Jubes, BoomBoom , they were all just girls. Messing around. But Anna, no Rogue, was the first girl. I don't really know what was different about her. Even after he showed up we would always talk. Okay so maybe it never really amounted to much, but she still trusted me right. When she came downstairs to talk after midnight. Sometimes Id be playing a game, others, id be just thinking, and shed come down and start talking. Not in the least like Kitty does, but more... I don't know Anna like. Speaking softly, hinting at somethings, being so very blunt about the painfully obvious. Sometimes she'd tear up, but she never actually cried.

"Are you hurt Rogue?" Poitr asked her from behind her. She shook her head. He looked into her eyes and then looked to Pyro. "It's hard for you to see him like that. Isn't it? Because you used to be friends?"
Rogue nodded. "Yeah. He was ma friend." she said it softly looking back to him as her professors worked to keep him alive in that hideous orange jumpsuit. She just prayed that he kept breathing. She didn't want him to die.
Poitr then said, "We were worried about you. Jubilee almost got Storm to let her come with us even though her training isn't done yet. And Wolverine was totally freaking out." His huge muscular form was still in his metal form. But Rogue was used to seeing him like this. It's why she nicknamed him Mr. Shiny. He smiled down at her and said, "I'm glad you're okay."
