Draw nigh with your arrows dipped in poison.
Let your lying lips come close to my ear.
Let your deceitful eyes meet mine.
The time has come once again.
The time to reveal your true nature.
You live to shed blood, my "friends".
You live to watch me suffer.
Come now, and pierce my heart once again,
with words that slaughter my very soul;
that cause my life to bleed out inside of me,
with rivers of tears that seem to have no end.
Come. Stare at my suffering,
with pitiless eyes that know no empathy;
with lips shaped in joyous smiles.
With laughter and joy, dance around my pain.
Your venomous words penetrate my being.
I stumble from all the pain of your poison.
Light and life is slowly drained.
Shrouding me in darkness
Have I pleased you now my "friends"?
In the midst of my pain, I see you laughing.
Surely my suffering was not in vain,
For you are happy.
The earth is made drunk by my blood.
Blood shed to satisfy your evil thirst.

"Party, party, party!!" Tony chanted as he was marching through the apartment. Steve looked at him from the couch, taking a break from his book.
"What party?" he asked, looking puzzled at Tony. The brunet smiled wildly and pounced on Steve's lap, straddling him. Steve didn't expect that and dropped the book with a surprised yelp.
"A Halloween party, baby!" Tony shouted excited, cupping his face.
"What? Halloween?" Steve's mouth twitched in a sarcastic smile. "Aren't you too old for Halloween?" Tony rolled his eyes.
"Not that kind of party, a one for adults! You know, spiked punch, and that stuff!" Steve removed Tony's hands from his cheeks and eyed him suspiciously. It was just another occasion for

They walk to the beat of a double-bass drum.
With festering wounds from the guitars they strum.
Sent to spread havok by the most evil Devil.
In the form of bone crushing, brutal Death Metal.
The music begins and your skin starts to peel.
Ripping and burning till' you no longer feel.
As your head explodes they strike a grin.

Nearly two hours had passed since well, since Tony had been subjected to whatever the hell in that claustrophobic stairwell. Tony really didn't know why Steve had to keep using such modern terms like 'sexual assault' and 'attempted rape' terms that Tony had assumed weren't even assimilated into Steve's updated vocabulary. Anyway, it hadn't gotten that far, wouldn't have gotten that far. Steve had stopped it from happening.

Everyone was dancing, the men giving their hands to young ladies and promising to stay with them for song, or maybe offering longer than that. The only people not on the dance-floor were a few disgruntled girls who hadn't been asked yet and the nervous guys who hadn't plucked up the courage to ask.

"Don't you dare be late" she whispered, her eyes welling up with tears. Her view of the entrance became clouded
Still LifeYou told me onceStill Life4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I smelled like a glass of water
And when I tell you
Water doesn't smell
The way you smiled at everyone
And told me
You crave water like you craved my skin
I told you once I preferred floors to walls
And you said that was because
I was woefully underappreciated
And I said that was because
I was spoiled
But you were never mine
Like the glass never owns the water
For an instant
The glass contains all of the waters being
And keeps secrets from spilling on the bed
I was never yours
And the way walls and floors meet
But never make love
Content to hold hands and lock joints
Except in catastrophes
When they tumble together
And strangers are left picking up the pieces

"You have to." Howard Stark didn't turn around to face his son, but Tony didn't need to see his face to know that it was set.
Tony groaned, crossing his arms over his chest. "Dammit, dad! You drag me to this every year. The dude's dead, just let it go already."
Howard's hands were instantly on Tony's shoulders, anger twisting his face. Tony tensed, suddenly motionless. His father was distant, left Tony alone and let him have his space, and he never touched him. This was the first time Howard had raised a hand to him, and Tony was stunned speechless and terrified. "He was a great man," Howard snarled, and Tony pulled back against his father. "You're going to his memorial."

Tony was worried. It will be a difficult talk with his husband. But he had to do it. Not for him, but for their kid. He took a deep breath and went into the kitchen, knowing that he will find Steve there.
"Steve.." he started. Captain turned around with a smile. He was scooping out the pulp from a small pumpkin. On the table next to him were other small pumpkins, ready to carve.
"Pumpkin soup today," he chirped, "Peter will carve them later." Tony nodded his head.
"Steve, we need to talk."
"Peter. And Halloween."
"What do you mean?" Steve slightly frowned.
"Steve.. Peter is already 6.. And he never went trick or treating.."
"Of course he went, he goes every year," Steve continued to frown.
"Going around the tower, asking Fury and SHIELDS agents for candy doesn't count, I mean real trick or treating.. You know, with other kids.. On the street.."

Tony stirred in his sleep. There was some sweet scent in the air. Heavy. Sweet. Rich. He opened his eyes and lifted on his bed, scratching the back of his head. He looked around and saw a piece of cake on the nightstand. Chocolate fudge cake, to be exact. He smiled, knowing that Steve was the one who left it there. Because he knew it was Tony's favorite and he liked to spoil him. He took the plate and started eating the chocolate goodness. The cake was moist, the fudge rich, and the whole piece combined together tasted heavenly. He finished, licking his lips. Tony got up and went into the living room to thank with Steve.
Steve finished his training a while ago and was on his way to the bedroom. It was an unspoken agreement between them both that Steve wakes up Tony practically every day. But he didn't complain, he liked doing that. His eyebrow raised in question when he saw that Tony was already up, a smug smile plastered to his face as he wrapped himself around Steve and pulled him in

It's like he's hearing the words through a tube. They sound faraway and tinny maybe like they're coming through an old radio. But it's still a voice, one that isn't yelling at him or threatening him and even though his vision's swimming in and out of focus probably a concussion and his ears are ringing and he feels like he's been hit by a truck.
Someone is pulling him up to his feet, though, an arm under his shoulders and he's lucky that it's there because otherwise Tony would be falling flat on his face. His knees are shaking and his legs feel like they're made of jelly. He can't stand up on his own.
The arm around him slides down to his waist and Tony's pulled against a body that is nothing but muscle he would stop to admire but his head feels like someone tap danced on it in his suit and his vision is filled with bright blue fabric.

It starts out with a few little things.
Tony notices how Steve is always attentive he's the perfect boyfriend who never does anything wrong. He's always there when he needs him and hovering in the background when he doesn't or thinks he doesn't and he seems to always have the right thing to say at the right time. Sure, he's a little awkward, but his heart is in the right place and Tony would have to be completely blind not to see that he's head-over-heels in love with him.
And he can't take advantage of that.
But that isn't so much what Tony notices.
It's the way he always is at Tony's side; how he always seems to lurk protectively near him whenever he goes out in public even if he's just going to grab a coffee or something. Steve is always there, standing beside him, offering to go with him even though Tony knows he's going anyway. There's just no way that he can deny that smile.

A harsh light straight in his face. Someone was screaming at him. The voice belonged to a male. It was brash and impatient. He couldn't understand him. He wanted to tell him that he doesn't know what is he saying, but before he opened his mouth, his head was plunged into the water. He struggled, he didn't expect that. It was painful, he was gasping for air, but just swallowed water. As he felt the lack of oxygen getting into his head, he was violently pulled out by the hair. He gasped, trying to catch his breath. Now more voices were screaming at him. They were all hostile. Too many of them, they all mixed into one incoherent chatter. He screamed that he doesn't understand, but they were not listening. Again his head was plunged into the water. This time for longer. He felt weaker, he didn't have any strength to struggle anymore. Just let him die. He was pulled out and painfully tossed to the ground. Coughing up the water he opened his eyes. He was not alone. He was facing a man. Th

And Steve knew that he was forbidden from doing that while he was welding and now he nearly cut the table in half. He wanted to yell at the soldier but Steve's panicked voice got him worried so he put aside his tools and turned around, pulling his goggles down.

Tony dragged his feet in the bedroom direction. It was 4 a.m. and he just finished working in the lab, wanting nothing more than to just lie in his bed. His breath quickened as he made it to the bedroom and saw that his bed was already occupied by the muscled figure of Captain America. They were already dating for a while, but Tony still was mildly surprised seeing Steve there. They didn't make any agreement that Steve will be sleeping here, somehow it happened naturally. And it did make Tony happy. He changed into his pajama bottom, leaving his tank top on. He slipped under the covers, next to Steve, not hugging him or anything, just being next to him.
"Tony.." Steve murmured softly.
"Sorry, woke you up?"
"No," Captain opened his eyes with a smile. He moved closer to Tony, letting the covers slid from his body and Tony noticed that Steve was shirtless.
"Take it off," Steve gently tugged Tony's tank top. Tony frowned, and reluctantly took his shirt off, just making sure that the covers

I refuse to believe that anger, and hate is the answer
