Only Skin Deep- RunningAfter trying to escape Dante had found her and said he would help her escape and now Becka was shocked and frightened at his words.
"Demetri will only kill you if he finds you now." Dante started to put his arms under her.
"What the hell? Why are you trying to help me now?" she asked him with narrowed eyes.
"Because..." Dante picked her up in his arms and stood up. "I want you for myself."
Now he was carrying her to a black Harley Davidson. It looked like one of those ones used for crossing the country, with compartments on the back sides. He sat her down on the bike. "Do you have enough strength to hold onto me while I drive?" he asked her as he held her shoulders. She shivvered in the cold and from his touch. Dante saw this and took off his motorcycle jacket and put it around her shoulders. "Here. It will only get colder when we start to ride." He got on the bike as Becka put on the jacket and zipped it up. She felt warmer almost imeadiatly. She was hesitant and confused. Wa

no I am more broken than not
but that's what happens
when your life has been full
of fear and pain
even after you escape
the memories still haunt
and the dreams still wake you
even when you are safe
and loved and wanted and cared for
you are still broken

My Better Half.For thousands of years,My Better Half.5 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...
Alone TogetherWe share the dangerAlone Together5 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

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 Again5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Rogue-chp 1 the CureThe sound of the early morning rain hitting the window was soothing as Rogue sat in the kitchen eating cereal and reading her text book for the exam tomorrow. 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 Cure5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Like her personality, bright loud and happy. Rogue had started hanging out with Jubilee when Bobby left her to be with Kitty.
With that thought Rogue looked down at her cereal and tried not to think about the day Bobby had told her that he didn't want to be with her anymore. She di

That I can not be surrounded by your presence
And still be okay in the end.
I need to walk away from this dyfunctional relationship
But I get lost in endless circles that always leads back to you.
We're too indifferent to survive another day
That is full of nothing but dysfunctionality and guessing games.
And it scares me to be away from you but losing myself along
The way of this love journey scares me even more.
I got lost and entangled with your heart as we blended and got blinded
By a four lettered word that shouldn't have been.
Don't leave me hanging here because I'm starting to drown now.

"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."

Is there life on Mars?
Have birds ever sang?
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?
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?

Rogue 9 HelpRogue had made her way up into the manor and was in front of Logan's door. Some part of her hoped he wouldn't be there when she knocked. 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.
