How To Write A PoemSee, writing is a lot like walking up to people in a bar.How To Write A Poem2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Let me paint you a picture.
Imagine every action you take as your story
Or your poem.
There is always a beginning, middle & end.
Most usually in that order.
I mean…you could try to go up to a stranger & asking them to marry you.
They’ll advise you to go to a mental institution.
I walked right up to my reader in a bar
As for some reason I often do,
I said, “You must have your sky miles card on today, ‘cause you are lookin’ extra fly.”
Now I know what you’re thinking…Who the hell is this guy?
He’s trying to teach people how to write using cheesy pickup lines.
But here’s my point.
You have to have a way to attract your reader.
As shallow as it sounds, you’re first impression is everything.
You’re first words will draw people in like Moths to a flame
(As cliché as that sounds…)
And if they don’t like it, they’ll be quick to move
JealousyI know I shouldn’t be jealousJealousy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But how can I help it?
She is always so perfect,
So… everything I’m not
I can’t help but feel
Like I am on the sidelines
Next to her.
Like I will never amount
Up to her.
That I am insufficient
Compared to her.
I see the way you look at her
And I can’t help but wonder,
Do you look at me like you do her?
Hug me like you do her?
Laugh and smile with me
Like you do
I am sure she is a good person,
A very nice person in fact.
It isn’t hard to tell she loves you,
That she cares very much about you,
I am sure she is a wonderful friend
To have around….
I know I shouldn’t be jealous…
But how can I help it?
I want a bond with you
Like she has….

Sesshoumaru and Kureha had studied together since they were children.
Kureha's mother and Inu no Taishou had an alliance against a foreign youkai invasion, and since then their kin kept their alliance.
Kureha was entrusted to Sesshoumaru's mother while she received lessons from sages gathered at Sesshoumaru's mother's palace.
They met every few years, and Kureha stayed about half a year each time.
Kureha's Orochi (Great Serpent) clan and Sesshoumaru's Inu Daiyoukai have different customs and social structure.
Youkai do not have convention of marriage.

Three days had passed with no sign of Alfred. As happy as that should have made Arthur he couldn't help but to feel saddened. Though he may have been called the "heartless pirate demon" Arthur couldn't stand losing one of his men and Toris was one of the better crewmates and unlike many of them was good-hearted. He was forced into Arthur's service yet remained loyal to the end. Yes, Arthur would miss the bloke.
The day was bright and the air still. Without the wind they were unable to move from their spot. Arthur was about to command for them to get the oars out when he heard it. If angels could sing this would have been what would have sounded like. It was only one voice, faint yet traveling over the ocean, so beautiful he wondered if he was hallucinating.

You were in Romano's lap on your couch. He was playing with your hair while you both of you talked.
"What do you mean, [name]?" he asked back. He sounded like he didn't want to talk about it, but it had been bothering you for quite some time.
"Well, why do you like me? I thought you'd like Belgium or some other pretty girl that Spain has introduced you to. Not me."
His hands let go of your hair and he wrapped them around your waist. His head was rested on your shoulder now and you could feel him breath down your neck. "Why not? I like you, don't make me say it again."
You knew that he was stubborn and in denial about you two being together when around other people, but when you were alone with him he'd only acknowledge it if you brought it up. It made you think that he didn't care, that he was fine with thinking you two were just friends. It was silly, but you were afraid that he'd forget about his feelings for you if he continue

He was next in line to rule the country, but was viewed as too immature and carefree to take on the duties as the kingdom's heir.Tsunderella4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

USUK Child Rearing Diaries 1Alfred always knew Arthur liked kids. It was apparent on the Brits face almost every time they passed a park where several of the little bundles of energy were running around the jungle gyms and squealing with delight. His face turned so peaceful and serene and a paternal warmth pooled into his emerald eyes and spread down into the smile that graced his lips. Alfred loved the way Arthur's face looked whenever he laid his gaze on a child; so much so that he wanted to see it every day.

"What on earth are you eating, America?" England asked, eyeing the Twinkie suspiciously.
"It's a Twinkie, silly," answered America, handing the package to him, "Want one?"
England looked at the plastic wrapper and read some of the ingredients list. "Um No thank you."
"Aww, why not?"
"Because I don't eat food that has more chemicals in it than actual food."
"Would you eat one if I stripped and fed it to you by mouth?" America smirked and began unbuttoning his shirt.
England's face reddened and he stammered, "There will be no need for that."
America pulled his shirt all the way off and stepped toward England. He trapped him against the counter and asked him, "Are you sure about that?"
England reddened further but he answered, "No."
America raised one eyebrow. "Come on, bitch, we're going upstairs." He grabbed his wrist and pulled him toward the staircase.

England was not expecting this.
No, when he stepped out of the terminal gate and took his first step into Texas he was definitely expecting something different.
The airport was gigantic, and like any other he had been to, was filled with a great number of bustling, diverse, but relatively normal people. As he looked around, absorbing the normalcy of the Texan building, his sense of annoyance toward a certain obnoxious nation increased.
Where were the cowboys? The flashy wranglers? The loud rednecks? So far there was nothing, only business men and families and overall ordinary people. A blush was making its way up England's neck to his face and ears and he became hypersensitive to the stares he was attracting. Surely what he was wearing was the norm, right?
England took a step forward, cringing at the small ding the spurs on his boots made.

The pink earth pony, Pinkie Pie (somewhere in all her blather Soarin had caught her name), led, or rather, dragged Rainbow and Soarin through Ponyville. From what he could see of the town, it was remarkably undamaged considering the dragon assault. He could see a few ponies patching up tiles or sweeping away debris, but all of the big, heavy duty damage had been cleared up. This was strange, considering it was only a day after the dragon's disappearance.
Pinkie Pie let go of his arm, and Soarin stood up, massaging his poor limb. The building which she had plopped them in front was a tree, with a book sign pointing out its use as a library. Resisting Pinkie's attempts to shove him through the front door, Soarin waited until Rainbow was upright again before moving into the tree.
Inside was just about what he'd thought it would be like. Same as any library, books everywhere, and a couple of ponies wandering about. Soarin thought he recognised everypony, all five of Rainbow's friends were

As arithmetic has always shown.
But it's this that's made me wholly see
A formula before unknown.
Thus I struggle sorely to impute
Any form of logic to this love.
I cannot manage to compute
What this racing heart's indicative of.
To my dismay, I cannot derive,
Any sense to this new affection.
But it's this very confusion that keeps me alive,
Though I desperately fear a certain rejection.
By parenthesis, we're set apart,
Such a hopeless equation I long to pursue.
But I hope someday to hold your heart,
And I vow with conviction I'll factor through.
Whole numbers are what I once desired,
In such a sum I yearned to be.
But integers are dull and tired
And this repeating decimal intrigues me.
All I required, I learned not in school,
The only whole number that matters is "2".
I don't care about timeworn theorems and rules-
I want to add with you.

He had hired her through an agency, his work and family too much for a single man. It was a rather impersonal way of hiring, he had a phone conversation with a secretary that took his data and nothing quite more. Then he was sent the date when the nanny would arrive and he and the children could get to know her. If she wasn't to his liking, he could call any time.
To be honest with himself, he was a very busy man. He worked as a journalist and editor, far much work for a man with two children. They had moved to New York not too long ago, after coming from the country side it was a bit too much. But the children liked the big city, and he had work to do.
