Lead Me Somewhere BeautifulMy soul has left meLead Me Somewhere Beautiful4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It floats in a corner peering at me as I go through the motions of life
My body is merely a shell an illusion of normalcy
Numb to everything, I experience no pain, no guilt
With dilated eyes I see nothing clearly
The blur is soft and comforting
I am only capable of smiling and nodding
Inside I am empty of everything that was me.
The only escape from the pain was to leave myself
I push everyone away with cadaverous hands
I have conversations with echoes
A pale image greets me in the mirror
I've never been so numb
I've never been so cold
Don't bother asking if I'm okay
I'm not fully here, remember?
Maybe I'm crazy maybe I'm just lost
If you find me wandering, lead me somewhere beautiful

Game: Mass Effect
Characters/Pairing: Commander Nevada Shepard (femShep) and James Vega
Chapter 12 Among Other Things
Traversing through the dock's holding area was gradually becoming a depressing sight. The crowds continued to grow as more and more became refugees from the Reaper invasion. The photographs on the Memorial Wall piled atop each other, stained with the tears of their successors. Nevada disliked venturing through this level of the Citadel. It served as a painful reminder that she could be doing more, fighting harder and finding ways to bring this war to an end sooner.
Coming across the first make-shift room, she stumbled upon her shirtless Lieutenant. With his back towards a batarian tattooist, he appeared to be enjoying himself. He caught the familiar silhouette of his endearing Commander from the corner of his eyes and immediately began glowing.
My Blade--My HeartMy Blade--My Heart9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Glare at me while I wait with closed eyes,
Feeling your thin fingers draw my neck.
And while your placid lips linger on mine
I begin my siren song - deep in the throat -
I amuse your neck with my glittering blade.
This dagger, cold as your heart, follows
My grazing fingers down your spine.
To where shall I introduce this new pain,
Which will hurt as I have by your hands?
I will show you how to love pain as I have.
Your icy fingers entwine my hair,
Your lips rest on the pulse of my neck,
And your burning breath siezes my ear.
"Kill me and you will lose yourself,"

And so feels the boy in such a place,
Alone and awkward to be set in his situation.
The uncomfortable grin that grows on his face,
The violent thoughts he has just in case.
So he sits writing down his ammunition,
To solely get him through the day.
And so he feels alone and he feels awkward,
But this is the game that he alone wanted to play.
Feel sorry for this boy for what he has to say,
When he alone he chose in this way to go forward?
He chose his ways; he chose his future days,
And thus his trembling does not matter,
Does not matter at all.
Let him fall so he can learn to crawl,
Just to get up and fall again,
Again, again, and again,
So he may bring life to this lifeless pen.
And so he regrets through his eyes.
'What a poor boy' someone might say,
He is nothing more than consequences,
He is nothing more than the chances given,
This is his way of being driven.
Yet the chances he took and the crashes he caused,
Somehow makes him feel like his life is infinitely paused.

VentrueVentrue10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When sun goes down and darkness falls
When shadows haunt these closing walls
Voices answer distant calls
He hides behind his throne
In memories fading, lost and old
In halls once great, now empty and cold
Where once grew hope, naive and bold
This is no longer home
His anger aches through flesh and bone
His screaming echoes, he's all alone
The floor is binding his tears in the stone
To keep his sorrow for ever
An empire built on others confusion
A vampire defeated by his own illusion
A fall of a damned as one sad conclusion
He laughs at all his endeavour
A pitiful attempt, a try to restore it
His powers are failing, his life is forfeit
He grieves his own death as he stands before it
His servants all left him to die
Cannot stop his declension
As it slays his dimension
Prays for redemption
But a Ventrue doesn't cry!?

I don't remember the sound of your voice
when you aren't angry.
I don't know
What you will say.
I don't WANT to know.
I don't want to hear that you're worried,
Or that you wanted to make sure
That I was alright.
But I can't just ignore you.
All I ever wanted was you to be happy.
And I guess it cost me my freedom.
I'm biting my nails,
I'm pacing the hall.
But with a final, weak breath,
I reach for the phone anyways.

All of it is made from these salt tears of mine
This ocean is nothing but pain and sorrow
Nothing to look forward to tomorrow
If only i would die
Nobody would even let out a sigh
Or i could just run away
Not one place would i ever stay
You choose for me
Should i die or run away

A Red Snow.
White turned to red.

I laid silently.
Covered in a red snow.
Within this snow I colored red,
I'll sleep forever.

"Just you watch Ciel, Claude will beat your feeble butler!" Alois says smuggly, giving Ciel a sidelong look.
Ciel pays no attention to Alois as the two masters look down from thier seats and onto the rediculousy large chessboard that sits below them.
"Are you ready to dance?" Claude says smoothly, a small smile etching onto his lips, taking a dancer's pose.
"Of corse," Sebastian replies, smileing a bit wider--suddenly revealing the tableware dangerously pointing from his fingers.
"well then, let's begin..." claude slips from his stance, adjusting his glasses. "Sebastian Michaelis, you are deffinetly NOT one hell of a butler"
Sebastian's eyes grow wide.Oh this means war...
Sebastian slips from his stance as well. " Well what do i care what a disgusting spider thinks, i could easily squash you with a butter knife." Smug smile.
"Well, i can tapdance," Claude retorts stiffly.
" Yeah, by yourself.I can dance the Waltz"Sebastian says, disgusted.
Full Moon DreamsFull Moon Dreams11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking up in the midnight sky I think.
Dreaming of my dreams.
Dreaming of my wishes.
My full moon dreams.
Seeing the stars streatch for eternity,
I wish I could be as beautiful.
I wish I could have their bright glow.
I dream of getting out of this hell.
My full moon dreams I want to fulfill.
Spreading my wings and taking off.
Closing my eyes and being somewhere else.
Take a deep breath and sigh.
I open my eyes and I am still here.
Sitting in a field and feeling the soft fall of rain.
I listen to the chirping of crickets,
And dream of things that I find impossible.
If I set my mind to it,
You can do anything.
I tried and failed multiple times.
Having such low self-esteem
Does not help.
I'm still sitting here dreaming of my full moon dreams.
I wish I could succeded in them.
Pulling out a razor blade,
I think of dying.
I slice my wrist,
And feel no pain.
All I feel at the moment,
Is the blood trickling down my arm.
Looking up at the full moon,
I think of the impossible.
Am I Alone?Am I Alone?10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I get a funny feeling,
it comes from deep inside.
I get all mad and angry,
wanting to go and hide.
My doctor calls it depression,
my dad says it's just me.
But the thoughts and feelings,
no one will ever see.
Some say I'm psycho,
some say I'm just weird.
It's like I'm a different person,
and the old me just disappeared.
I get really edgy,
I want to commit suicide real bad.
Then I get a headache,
followed by feeling sad.
I wish Icould get help,
Iwish it would go away.
Maybe if I keep praying real hard,
it will some day.
Evil creaturesEvil creatures2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They're evil creatures in the night
Lurking in the shadows but still seeing there sight
From they're pale skin and glowing eyes
Out there graves they will rise
Moaning and groaning is what you hear
Your body will soon fill with fear
They walk or run in a fast pace
Here they come for the chase
Get ready for the fear
Coming through the door they are here
Board up the windows to keep them away
This is the place you don't want to stay
It's too late now they're breaking in
It's a fight you may not win
Grab you shotgun prepare for the fight
This battle may last all night
Pain and blood come from your arm
A bite from these creatures can cause much harm
You feel pain as the illness spreads
This is the world of the walking dead
You gave a fight but now your done
The only choice now is to run
Flee from the horde and run like hell
But suddenly you see a wishing well
Grab a coin for a wish
Hoping the chaos will all vanish
This is reality not a dream
You can't stay here you have to leave

AttackThe hum and vibration of the song that had ended just a moment ago still pulsed along the walls and through the hearts of those attending the concert that night. The last song had been the one most anticipated by the most dedicated and adoring members of the bands elite fan base, a song from the first album, its performance a rare occasion of late. The charismatic lead singer traded his acoustic guitar to once again take up his famous custom made electric and stood up to survey the surging and swelling sea of eager fans, bodies pressed up against one another, savouring this snapshot of their adoration as they all begged for more.Attack7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This

In my blind devotion, I have forgot the true meaning...
Take away this pain!
Take all the tears I never shed for you...
I could have been your best part...But you broke me...
I know you didn't mean to, but you did...
And the wounds still do not heal...
And I scream into the night
My voice echoes through time
To the place we were happy
For a moment just...
When we smiled, wishing the same
Your touch burnt me
As your lips travelled over me
As your nails scratched my skin
As your breath gave me peace...
All is lost...
Just leave me!
Leave me to my selfpity, since you can't give me what I want from you,
And I can obviously give you a lot more than you need.
Leave me to drown...
Leave me to my lone nights and tearless eyes,
Since by knowing you more than anyone else
I've earned the title of someone different...
Someone I didn't want to be...
Leave me... At that you're the best...
And I shalt not forget the happy hours
I shalt not forgive the shards ling
