Drifting through dreams of woven carpets and hushed voices
In the darkness of the morning she began to write
While the sun woke from beyond in pale yellows and greens
She stilled her heart with words and phrases
In them she emptied her heart
She was calmed by the coming light
Which broke through the blackness
Finally, she arose from her bed in an unfamiliar house
Obeying a law, a peace, no one understood
Across sidewalks dampened by a new rain she walked
The stillness of life, devoid of humans, like a fresh breath
Into a building that was not home she stayed
While idiots answered questions with meaningless words
She sat at her desk and listened, waiting
To silence them with her words of knowledge
She spoke of what she knew, the longing for hope
Which always kept itself just in front of her, teasing her
Afraid that if she looked much longer, it would flee
She was so strong, though did she know it?
Behind her ocean eyes was a steel not yet broken
It would not be broken

for the morning
to come, but
now early, at one
the food is already
gone, down into
my belly and not
too long before I
squeeze a brownie
to make my way
down in the hall,
me and I look to
the master piece
painted on the wall,
but I hurry
the door without
reaching down to
tie my laces, and
check to see about
in the mirror that
I always see the
same person looking
at me, so I smile
to myself and think
of an encouragement,
then spend an hour
my cell phone went,
and finally I hear
it ringing, but it's
not mine cause I
just found it beside
a bottle of wine
and whine about
your problems later,
I'm not an emotional
hater, I just like
to play tricks on my
friends and laugh about
them when it ends,
in other words
I'd like to say,
let me sleep and
have a nice day!

And I'll give Death a persona. A face and a voice, so I can watch him as he watches me. So I can hear him whispering in the corner. I'll give him a hand to hold, so he can give me a touch to feel. And I'll keep him in the cellar, with all my other friends..
So I can look him in the eye and say,
"It never, ever, ends."
I had a bad day today. And you're always still so far away.. They're coming for me, I know, but I can't see them. We never are as good as we pretend. But I'll shelter you with my storm, we are disasters of our own design..
Death, my old friend.. Come to keep me warm again. Time wrapped me in your second skin.
You've come home to me again.

Let's take these feelings and make them substance. Give them a name and a life, removed from ourselves.
Let's create something that will make you sad just by looking at it, because loneliness hurts best when it's shared.
Let's call it art, and hope for something more.
But let's do it somewhere else, it's so fucking quiet here.

Something That Gets On Your Nerves
Why do people feel the need
To blow me off?
To stalk me?
To tell me what to do?
To ignore me?
I can take care of myself, mind you.
I don't need you to repeat me, thank you.
I don't want to be tripped, excuse you.
Why can't people understand me?
Am I really that hard to communicate with?
I know I have bad grammar sometimes.
Don't. Remind. Me.
If I come to you, I ask for help.
God didn't put you on this Earth to judge.
So why do you think it's your job?
What makes you so "Holy"?
What makes your life style so "perfect"?
Yeah, I like to party,
But I also know what and what not to do.
Why can't you leave me alone?
Why can't you talk to me when I need you to?
Why do you have to be in my face?
Why do you have to be so far away?
Why do you have to pop my bubble?
Why can't you be here?

She reached out to you
She wanted to be your friend
She needed you there
To tell her this isn't the end
She wasn't what you wanted
She did the best she could
She let you down,
Like she always knew she would
She writes her apologies in red
She writes her apologies in her skin
She writes her apologies and cries
She writes her apologies and wonders why..
Why is she such a "disappointment"
Why is she so bad
Why does she always do wrong
Why does she make you so mad
She tries to say she's sorry
But she knows the friendships dead
So she'll write her apologies in red
And finish the sorry that needed to be said.

Through the painful dreams of my heart and soul.
Love unrequited is a tragedy
That I must face to fill these gaping holes.
My dreams rehashed bring nothing but sorrow
Haunting visions of you enter my cries
The heart I have left seems to be hollow
In stark contrast to your radiant eyes
Still your smile provides a place of peace
And there are no words to describe your grace
Though your heart is a place beyond my reach
You, my love, make my world a better place
I will content myself with loving you
Because life's too short to deny what's true.

I look in the mirror,
It'll only make it clearer.
What is it that I see?
Why doesn't it belong to me?
Your face that I see.
Within my eyes
My eyes through seeing you
Your face that I see.
Erase what you did to me.
To see my departure
Is to see to my own capture
Stone of hearts beat 'till cold
It was my soul that you sold.
If was your face
Your face through my eyes
It is your soul
Surrounding me 'till I'm cold
Your face asking repentance
It is myself
Myself refusing you
It is your face,
Your face that could make it clearer
If your eyes,
Your eyes could never lie.

As tears roll down your cheek
You whisper softly in my ear "I Love You"
Looking into my eyes you give a gentle kiss of goodbye
Tears now form beneath my eyes as you
walk away, wondering Is this the end?
Hugs and kisses of despair
Memories lingering in our minds
Thinking that those are the moments I live for.
As you walk away, I count the steps you take and wonder if this will ever be again. If you'll ever want this again.
My eyes now filled with hurt and fading from crying.
My wrists all red from thinking what have I done to you.
Lost cause is what has become of me.
Why did I do this to you?
I know that we were meant to be.
So many words Untold.
So many memories not made.
Hoping that one day it will all be the same.
Its all a simple reminder of what iv done.
Just one simple sign that your with me gives me
The strength to hold on.
Your all I had.
All I ever needed.
I wanted something that just wasn't real.
I never thought that things would be this way.

and it's cool to hate your dad
save your tears for rainy days
and baby no one will ever know
that you're sad
but now that we've grown up a little
what do you see in the light of my halo?
why are they always looking down on me?
the park bench
is a landmark of sadness
it sits on the edge
of the forest
I almost made it
past the first line of trees
but you were there
waiting for me
and now that we've grown up a little
what do you see in the light of my halo?
why are you always so good to me?
IceLiech- What did you do?Iceland yawned and streched, walking into the bathroom. He looked into the mirror, noticing something was... different. He looked down, and almost screamed. He put his hands over his breasts, and he gagged, "Oh noooooo..!" he shoved a hand down his boxers, and groaned, "It's not THERE!" He, or she, shouted, "Norway! GET OVER HERE AND CHANGE ME BACK!!" She stormed out, and Norway bllinked. "Well... I would but... I didn't do that..." Iceland gave a feral growl, "Who else is the-- ENGLAND!!

Well... If his warning hadn't gone through one ear and out the other, she'd be her own normal self... But it had. And now... She was a mochi. That's right.

"I threw up this morning and I checked the test! WHY WOULD I LIE ABOUT THIS?!" she sounded as if she was choking back tears. Iceland blinked several times, and murmured, "I'll be right over," he hung up, and soon, Norway put a hand on his shoulder. "Was that Lilli?"
Norway nodded. "Well, remember how Greenland and Faroe used your car? Well... It crashed into a tree..."
"WHAT?! YOU NEED TO CONTROL YOUR CHILDREN!!"
Norway nodded. "Well... you know how Faroe is," Iceland facepalmed. "Can you drive me there?"
"If you call me Onii-Chan,"
Norway nodded, content. "You get to the car first. I'll be right there, ok?" Iceland nodded, and when he was gone, Norway called someone on the phone.
"Liech, the puffin is in the bag. Why did I have to say that?"

Your eyes shot open as you heard someone or something trying to bust down your front door. You rolled out of bed and crouched underneath your bed. Your fingures touched the handle of your P-38 as you grabbed it from its hiding spot. You marched to your bedroom door and opened it slowly. You peeked into the hallway and saw Berwald walking down it with a shot gun in hand.
You nodded at him as you two walked to the front door.
BANG BANG BANG
Berwald went before you and grasped onto the door knob. You two stood there weapons in hand as he nodded to you.
With a sudden heave Berwald ripped the door open and you both aimed your weapons.
"Hellige måske nok!!!!"
You and Berwald sighed as you lowered your weapons.
"What do you want Mathias?"
You walked up to Mathias as Berwald shook his head and walked back to his room with Tino. You looked at the Danish man and saw that there was something going on.
"Well come on lets try and get you sober first shall we?"

Lichtenstein smiled as she held the sleeping kitten; at least he had left her someone to remember him by.
Iceland smiled softly as the blonde, Germanic nation murmured sweet words into his ear; the words didn't matter so much to him as much as just hearing her voice, and that was fine for him.
Iceland's eyes widened and he gulped nervously; Lichtenstein smirking deviously while holding her brush and eyeing his hair dangerously was never a good thing.
Lichtenstein clasped her hands together in front of her as she stared up at the moon through her window; she would give anything in the whole universe to be free of her prison and be with Iceland once more.
"Oh Iceland, you're not as hard to figure out as you think."
One day, Prussia had asked Lichtenstein what she saw in Iceland, and Lichtenstein had answered him honestly; "He makes me laugh and he doesn't make me cry."

Who still loved the man
Who threw you from his life
Woman of passion
His child you bore
But he'd not got a son
So he killed you as a whore
Woman of silence
Who bore him his son
But never recovered
And your life was soon done
Woman of rejection
With portrait so fair
Cast off when he saw you
And you two didn't compare
Woman of youth
Wild and strong-willed
So quickly he loved you
So quickly he killed
Woman of courage

A nice husband you got

Once you entered the kitchen the smell of toast, chocolate and coffee entered your nostrils. Finland was standing at the oven, cooking. While the others where sitting at the table. You ran over to Greenland and sat in her lap while listening to Norway trying to make Iceland call him big brother.

“No.” Iceland responded feeling quite irritated.
“Just say it already Ice.” Greenland said, sighing.
“Nothing wrong with saying it…” Sweden piped in.
“Come on Iceland, say it already!” Denmark agreed.
You looked at them one by one and said, in your cute little voice and a smile on your face. “I can call you big brother, big brother Norway!”
