Deviate From The WorldDeviate from the world, and find true love.Deviate From The World5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Deviate from the ignorant, and find true wisdom.
Keep your mind & heart packed with righteous ideas.
Keep your body & soul packed with all that it needs:
Food & drinks that deviate from chemically-altered hands.
Eat the fruits of your labor, if your works deviate from the laws of the land.
Be healthy & prosper, my friends.
Deviate from the people, who please this world, again & again.
If you're willfully-ignorant: you're like every other worldly boy & girl.
If you're strong & meek: you deviate from the world.
Of Apples, Trees and White-Haired MaidensLucy paused, her hand that was holding her lantern out in front of her trembling and sending the golden candlelight dancing over her surroundings. Her heavy breath came out in a great cloud before her, and despite the cool night air catching her bare skin from where it was exposed due to her skimpy witch costume, she could feel a thin layer of sweat forming on her body with every step she took.Of Apples, Trees and White-Haired Maidens2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was all Natsu’s fault, damn it! All Natsu’s fault that she was now traversing the haunted grounds of Magnolia’s graveyard. If he had just kept his big mouth shut none of this would have happened.
You mean if you had kept your mouth shut, the voice in her head commented, though she silenced it with a scowl. It wasn’t her fault that when she arrived at Fairy Tail’s annual Halloween party that Natsu had been standing on a table in the middle of the guild re-enacting how she had screamed and run from her apartment the year before when he h

not knowing there is no luck in the break.
her veins are unanswered prayers
her lungs an apology sent as letters to heaven,
hoping God will forgive her for being a continual disappointment.
her head is a phonebooth for all the thoughts nobody's picking up on.
the the sadness is sinking her again.
so when she leaves at midnight to longboard to the ocean,
go with her.
when she tries to climb bridges,
don't let her.
when she's drinking cold tea and playing daughter,
it means she's trying to pull her head together.
when she's in the bathroom praying to the toilet,
decide to knock.
when she avoids you,
hide her blades.
she doesn't have the will to fight anymore.
so on the bad days, fight for her.
The Long ViewThe Long View6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The Long View
Walking along the beach
Feeling the sand beneath my feet
Remembering times long past
And all the roads that I have travelled
Arriving at this point in time
Keeping it in perspective
Learning from each experience
Along the pathway toward tomorrow
Moving forward with my life
Regretting none of the choices Ive made
Gaining knowledge with each step
On the highway of existence.
No need to prove anythingNo need to prove anything6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There is never a need to prove anything to anyone. If you believe in something so beautiful, then just go with it as it will find it's place in your heart and last forever.
As a soul wrapped in flesh, we go through life with the concept that we as children of god, have a moral obligation to teach and love one another and cherish everything that is all around us and understand that what is shared, comes back in full circle and enlightens our spirits as well.
Share and just be...
SuddenlyGoodbyes said in too much haste,Suddenly6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
with regrets in shades of grey.
Repressed anger and frayed emotion
with promises broken, for reasons only seen
through rose-coloured glasses,
on the faces of nameless people.
Days in monotone, clouded with desire and
the hope of disquise, given by the marionette
with no strings.
Screaming the answers we need to hear, but
still the lonliness is felt, in a room filled with
bodies with no souls.
The acrid smell of desperation is so potent, as
to take away our breath, and leave us gasping
for the very air we breathe.
Saturated in the belief that torment is all encompassing,
and our free will is locked in a Pandora's box,
struggling with ego and self pity.
Too much to deal with, and set aside in rows
of matchbox cars, and only played with when
Life is as sudden as a tempest on the horizon,
or as drawn out as a mindgame of chess, with
too many pieces in all the wrong places.
Suddenly, is what I feel and suddenly, is

With thornless roses in subtle hues
and scented enigmatic scenario's chasing
away the blues that are being played in
my mind by a never-ending cascade of emotion
With promise in every darkened shadow
hiding hopes and dreams amongst the
reality of burnt ashes and tormented travesties
With passion that ignites my body to the
point of ultimate orgasmic pleasure setting
alight the flames from deep within my soul
Till I feel with every fibre of my being
the pain of loss, of love, of fantasy and reality
mixed like cinnamon sugar but sweeter to taste
Not with pearls of hope or rubies tainted with
the blood of lover's lost and a moments regret
but with Emeralds of Green and the envy of sweet surprise
Till I can be tempted no more
Then lay me to rest amongst my thornless roses
in colours seen through my sightless eyes
remembering the places I have been
Oh Please Tempt me No more
For I have had my fill of endl
Encounter: Chapter 3Desmond and Lucy were still crouching together, his arm around her shoulders, when the paramedics finally arrived. Footsteps sounded down the hallway, many voices too.Encounter: Chapter 35 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Right here!" one of them called above all the others. The group of paramedics moved into the lab. There were about five.
Reluctantly Desmond pulled his arm away and he and Lucy stood up. The head paramedic headed towards them, a serious look on her face. "Tell me what has happened," she ordered kindly.
Immediately Lucy took charge. She didn't exactly lie, nor tell the truth either. She made a good sound of pretending to be scared. "This man. We found him here, just on the ground. He had several wounds- we tried to treat him."
"What kind of wounds?" the paramedic asked, holding a paper.
"I don't know." It was best to lie, that way he didn't have to explain. Desmond shot a look at Lucy. Get out of this situation- fast. But take care of Altaïr.
For the next few minutes Desmond and Lucy were questioned. What

An angel stands in heaven
Then kneels before the throne
Called to face her Father
For a deed he can't condone
You were told to be a guardian
With his death your work was done
Vengeance was not yours to take
Though you loved the Dark Lords son
Using a forbidden curse
You have given eternal life
Your aim to cause much misery,
Endless suffering and strife
You created something evil
From the grave no peace he gains
Hell that walks upon the earth,
Yet with a heart that feels such pain
Then you broke another rule
Angel, you fell in love with him
You know for heavens daughter
To love a beast like him is sin
So now beloved daughter
The price for what you've done
A curse I place upon thee,
One that can not come undone.
Depart from heaven you must
You are no longer welcome here,
And for your curse upon him
This is the burden you will bare,
You will walk the earth forever
And like him you will not sleep
You will share his pain
And in your heart his hurt you'll keep
And then the w
Winter DreamsWinter Dreams5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A little wizened man
caught lightning on his tongue
and put it in jars
with copper keys
and let it sing
in branches green
the winter night
and keep the dark at bay.
And his fragile fingers
hooked dragonflies on threads
and placed them on stones
with spinning spoons
and let them dance
on river beds
the winter chill
and keep the warm of day
His bony ancient hands
grew fiddle ferns in pots
and caught their scent
like new found books
and hid those notes
on rooftop slates
the winter's tide
and keep the cold away.
His gentle tiny thumbs
made puzzle dolls from leaves
and dressed their charms
with soft moss shoes
and tucked them in
the children's beds
the winter's blues
and deepest shades of grey.
And when at las
Deaths SongSplintered fragments of a requiem playedDeaths Song6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In tortured notes of the follies made
A requiescat uttered in silent breath
Of pain and sadness found in death
Souls encased in shadowed mirth
Bared and broken upon the hearth
Abandoned to lay in silent harmony
A tune to sing midst darkened company
To stand alone with palms upright
And pray a prayer for eternal light
All sins are placed to be reviewed
Within the hope of faith renewed
Atonement for the sins once made
To give of fear and not be afraid
Pure solace given and comfort meant
These words mask sorrow heaven sent
Lay down your heart and rest a while
No more to delude or yet beguile
Begin again and begrudge not life
Find peace and comfort, eluding strife
The strands of time will fade away
Of living amongst an endless day
Cobwebs spun in flimsy accumulation
Replacing confusion with elation
Simple answers to a lifelong riddle
That has a start, an end and a middle
We are born to live and then we die
Our last breath we pray, a gentl
