painIts like having the skin shredded from you're body. It bares the soul. All of its intricacies, its hidden depths, the parts you tried so hard to hide from everything and everyone, even from yourself, exposed to all, unable to stay covered. A volcano, magma pouring forth, rolling, tumbling down the mountain's rocky side, slipping and sliding to the ground, destroying everything in its path. And, with it, comes the tears, falling like rain from normally stony eyes, now bright and alive with the fresh pain they've discovered. There is nothing left to hide behind, no way to valiantly pretend you don't care. You're open, shown to the world and all of its cruelty, unsheathed, unprotected, unable to stop the torrent of emotions flowing through you. And still you never learn.pain10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

10 things I hate about me
by: Victoria DiTomassi
I hate the way I talk to you
even when you're not there
I hate the way I sit at home
and wish that you would care
I hate my low self esteem
and the fact that I've lost my mind
I hate me so much I feel I'm dead
just waiting for the end of time
I hate the way I'm selfish and wrong
I hate it when I try
I hate it when I'm all alone
yet people see me cry
I hate it when I'm with myself
and no one bothers to call
But most of all I hate myself
so I don't have to hate you at all,
I see in myself the things I love,
the things I found in you,
I can't hate you though, but you made me hurt
and the hurt is what I hate
Inside of me you made me die
and now it's much too late.

even though it's out of your reach
still hope for the impossible because,
as your brain tells your soul,
"you might be the lucky one"
But your brain also talks to your heart
"don't even bother", it says
"you're not good enough", it says
lucky your heart and soul don't talk
your brain weaves a web of lies
of untruths and false hopes
and waits, and watches the game
it has set in motion
watches and waits
and when your heart and soul are defeated
dashed against the rocky shores of truth
and battered with the storms of reason
they come back to your brain
come back, to accuse, to scream
"this was all your idea", they'll say
"how could you lead me so wrong"
then stop and look at the other
stop and wonder what your brain told the other
wonder wheather your brain was ever kind
and your brain will watch and wait
until they turn against him
until he it backed into a corner
and point at a tiny spark of light
and say "look, there is your hope"
and your heart an

Every time I close my eyes
All I see are yours
They're so sad
I know why they are sad
So why are they haunting me?
Every time I think of you
All I see are your eyes
I take a journey through your mind
And come back with a picture of your eyes
They're so sad
I want them to be happier
They're always there
I can't get them out
They haunt my dreams
They're just too sad
Every time I try to forget
All I can do is remember
And then I see your eyes
They're so sad
I love you my friend
And I love your eyes too
No matter how sad they get
And I'm always here for you
Your eyes are hypnotizing me
Putting me into a trance
And the problem is that
They're so sad
And I can't forget them

Hate me forever,

And I can't hate you in sorrow.
Because I'll love you foreverů
Or just for tomorrow.

I could take this razor and
cut you out
but your here so deep in my heart
my soul has withered
from all our pain
there is no peace for me
my tears have all dried up
there is no sleep
there is no escape for me
from the evil that is you
I wish you would
just leave me alone
take your pain and go
let me find the pieces

that you have scattered everywhere

I hate your perfect teeth
I hate that your the only one who can look at me and see what's beneath
I hate it when your hair looks great
I hate when I see you out on dates
I hate the way you make me feel like you're the only one that's real
I hate it when you ostracize me
Even worse when you make me feel guilty
For thinking secret thoughts of you that your girlfriends would never let me do
I hate it when you're mean
I hate that I can't be your dream
I hate that no matter how hard I try you always make me want to die
I hate that she has taken you away
And there's no longer a reason to be here today
I hate that you have caused me to cut but I mostly hate that I can never truly hate you, no matter what
Dragon's Journey -part one- Dragons. What do you envision when you hear that word? Ruthless, bloodthirsty beasts? That is what people in Trillathes village thought, the reason theyd hidden their village from the creatures, nestled amongst the craggy peaks of the icy mountains. To hide from these legends.Dragon's Journey -part one-7 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But legends were all they were. Dragons in fact were gentle creatures, and, contrary to what many thought, did not only have one form. When they wished, they could melt and twist their flesh, become human in shape with the palest skin, ice-blonde hair, piercing blue eyes, yet with their own individual beauty. But this wasnt unlike any other human - living in perpetual winter had given them all these features, making the very idea of spotting them an indefinite challenge. But it also meant a dragon could walk amongst humans, and they wouldnt even know it.

No one knows
how much pain is inside of you.
You lock yourself away
pretending that everything is ok.
When deep inside its tearing you apart,
you think that you have it under control
until you lose it all,
so you grab a knife and take a slice.
Next thing you know you're on the floor,
blood gushing from your wrist.
You slowly faint while death takes over

I absolutely loved it when my grandchildren come over and spend the weekend with me. All three of them. I looked over the fireplace to see the clock that hung over the mantel. The clock started to chime saying it was 7:00 in the evening. They would come back in a few more minutes. Looking down at the fire I realized that it was slowly starting to dwindle down into the coals. So using a small spell the fire danced back to life. The heat from the fire warmed my old scales and made me smile.
If you havent already guessed, Im a dragon. A very old but still kicking dragon. In a couple more years I will be referred to as an ancient one or wise one. This brings a an even bigger smile to my face. Not only is it a large leap in responsibilities, but more respect in the clan, and that I would be the new head of the clan. I took a long

Somehow totally pronouncing the period while simply saying "I love you".
It's one of the constant feelings I have with you,
Leaving me mindlessly craving for more.
I love how your voice strikes my inner sides,
But not how it happens to take over my mind.
And it never seems to strike alone because of my love for you,
A love I risk to trust in all the beautiful lies.
So I try to savor your words in my mind,
The way your voice holds my heart away,
The river of longing lit by your smile,
Every moment of what we have.
Love Is A SongLove Is A Song5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Love is a song.
It may start out as a whispering melody,
Or the ringing of bells.
Notes hinting of a sweet harmony.
Soft and innocent
A tune plays in the back of someone's mind,
The faintest notes.
The sweet song playing softly, softly.
It then becomes louder, and stronger.
The violin strings,
the beating of drums
clashing of symbols.
The feeling is so overwhelming
The orchestra of instruments begins to fade;
the brass and the drums fade
till you can hear no more.
Till only the sweet sound of the harp
and the soft lullaby of the violin can be heard.
The music plays softer and softer
but it doesn't fade.

There was a man standing in the rain,
He told me to run,
Run away from it all,
There was a time in my life when I asked myself,
Why did I do what he said?
Forward fifty years,
Another million tears,
Covered in my fears,
All looking at me through the mirror
I remember the black skies,
The fire falling from the skies,
Give me another reason to lie,
Give me a valid reason do die willing,
Or give me a reason to fight until my muscles ache,
When I get cut,
Give me a reason to stitch my wounds,
Give me a reason for these scars,
Give me a reason for all these empty bottles on my desk..
Hope runs fast.
What will I do when the happiness runs dry?
What will I say when my bottle runs empty?
What will I think when my walls crumble down?
Let me tell you...
Let me say what I have to say before it's all done,
Whether or not by now this is making any sense,
Maybe your just dense,
Or maybe I am,
But when the mermaids swim away in fear,
Do you follow?

"I'll pick down." He dove into the water. Being small for so long he could swim as any humanoid could, contrary to his nerves around massive quantities of liquid. Now, the white wouldn't win any swimming event but he was okay below. The water didn't reveal anything new so he headed back to the surface.

Do you know hate
Have you ever let yourself go
Has the feeling ever taken over you
Or do you not let that side of you show
Have you ever stared into the face of an enemy
Did you see the rage expressed on his face
Have you had to dig down deep inside
And purposely turn away from grace
Did you ever turn the key and open up the cage
Let out the demon that had long since been locked away
Was it something you almost enjoyed
As you went to battle on that bloody day
Was your hate enough to give you strength
Did all those years of pain finally come through
Were you able to overcome your fear
Or did it take command of you
Where do you go from here
Now that you have had the bitter taste
Do you try to bottle it back up
Or let loose and lay your life to waste
The perceived power of hate is enticing to be sure
Sometimes it seems easier than love
Even though it eats you up inside
You can almost see why Satan feel from his place above
So who are we to judge
What path would you take

That he could not grow any hair.
All his friends called him weird
For wanting a beard
But the stubborn dragon didn't care
Said he, "I'll buy something fake.
Then everyone will mistake
this wig bought with my cash
for a real mustache."
So the road to the store he did take.
He bought a wig-making kit.
When it opened he had a sneezing fit.
He said, "When this idea I got
About hair, I forgot
That I was allergic to it!"

i close my eyes
listening to my music
and when i open them again
you are there...
everything seems so perfect
the electricity is strong between us
you are dressed beautifully,
your hair flawless
your smile sweet and
we are holding hands
as we walk outside in the quiet
and the sun sets
fireflies light up the night
as the slight chill comes
i drape my coat over your shoulders
you blush slightly
and thank me quietly
i smile and cant resist any more
i stop walking
and you stop as well
and look back at me
with confused eyes
and simply adorable face
i lean in, eyes closed
and kiss you softly
our first kiss
this moment... so perfect
but when i lean back
and open my eyes
i am in my room
under my covers
looking up at my slowly moving fan
and i ask myself
'why...did i have to close my eyes then?'
'why...did the perfect night... have to stop?'
'why...couldn't i live in that dream forever?'

I was sitting on a boulder, watching the moon rise into the night sky. I smiled as I saw my breath climb into the air, as though it was trying to escape for something. I heard shuffling in a bush nearby, so I looked down. Standing about 10 feet away on a hill was a wolf. It looked in my direction, turned, lifted its nose, and howled into the sky. In the distance, more howls sounded, making an ominous, yet peaceful note. I noticed that the snow started to fall lightly again, adding more flakes to the millions that covered the earth. They glistened like tiny stars, and as they hit the earth, they disappeared into the shining blanket. I looked back into the sky, sighed, and almost started singing with the wolves. As I shook my head to clear the thought, the sky exploded into color. The snowy blanket that covered the world sparkled in many different hues, glowing almost as though they were lights themselves. I laid back onto the rock, absorbing my surroundings...
The Dragon Egg: Part 1It was a bright summer morning out on a tropical island. A bronze dragon named Kaena was sunning herself on a large rock on the beach. The sunlight glinted off her rich brown scales, creating a soft, colorful glow on the water's surface.The Dragon Egg: Part 17 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Kaena watched a crab as it scuttled across the sand, debating whether to eat it or not. After only a few moments, she decided not to, though she was rather hungry. A small crab would not diminish her hunger in the slightest. She knew that only a few hundred yards out was a nice bed of seaweed and coral that housed many oysters whose pearls were ripe for eating.
While Kaena was distracted by the thought of food, a shadow came swooping down over her.
Kaena looked up just in time to see a turquoise colored dragon barrel into her, knocking her off the rock. The bronze dragon rolled several times before coming to a halt partway in the water on her side. She looked down angrily to see the dragon chewing on the underside of her tail. "Aressa, stop that!"
