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
Deviate From The WorldDeviate from the world, and find true love.Deviate From The World6 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.

not your strongest weapon.
Those were your words.
You incited within us
(Ideas are bulletproof)
You once said
that writers use lies
to tell the truth.
Yet you were the only one
who never lied.
You became truth.
(People should not be afraid of their governments....)
You embodied a force
more powerful than one
could ever believe.
You woke us up
When we were asleep in the lull
You found us
When we were lost in darkness.
You were a dance
in the light
of the old jukebox,
You were an orchestra
of words and wisdom.
And when you spoke,
you were a song.
(...governments should be afraid of their people)
You masked yourself;
yet were the only
who did not
mask the truth.

YouYour eyes see into meYou6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
like lightning striking twice
hidden beneath the depths of emotion
into the wake of a storm
whispered veils of silk and sensuality
summoned to dance the dance of night
passion steals through me
But still you see ..
You whisper into me
like soft kisses in a misty breeze
hidden beneath promises that you can't keep
into the ether of eternity
veiled temptation and discordance
summoned to the edge of understanding
sunset settles on my soul
But still you whisper..
You echo through me
like hate on a stormy night
hidden beneath the words of a sibyl
into the dying euphoria
blessed curses and swirling light
summoned to the side of the dying
blackness steals through me
But still you echo..

the fears that drive you
keeping you apart
the mask that you wear
I don my own
fading back from transformation
dancing the dance of oblivion
curiosity refocused and caution ignored
as I lure out the truth from the belly of the beast
no more fear to whisper patience
calm sending waves of anticipation
as the gates of obscurity fade
taking on the lion
with an anvil
Inspired by the weakness
the emotions locked behind the facade
a fortress of inadvertent action
leading to parasitic obligation
inferiority and loss of direction
motivation fails to find me
yet recklessness draws me forward
as I tempt forth the beast
Why should the glory be shared?
when the weaknesses could be exploited?
using pure logic and reason I could seek a better path
emotions get in the way
Raw powerful and changing emotions
that long to sting and bite
the flawed heart
and restrained mind
Boxes and lines adorn the cage
tatters and ruins adorn the body
as still more is asked

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...

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

Lost One: Prologue
It's a well known fact that Konoha Shinobi are ruthless, I being from there. But I would have never imagined that they would turn their backs against their own citizens. This was all going through my head when a little, lost girl, with odd pink hair, asked Kisame and I if we had any drinking water to spare She looked like she was on the verge of death. Her forehead bared a open deep gash, she had purple and blue bruises all over her, as if she had been beaten countless of times, yet the only appeared to be a toddler, at the most four years old. What was really surprising was the abnormally large chakra bank she had. Maybe she could be of use to us?
"What's your name little girl?" Itachi never was one to be kind to a stranger, despite their condition. "M-mommy died protecting my clan." "Your clan?" Kisame was showing a small interest towards the poor girl. "H-hai. My name is Sakura Haruno." The girl could barely get any wor

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
