BeautifulThe girl sitting next to me has a beautiful smile.Beautiful3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I want to get up and tell her but I'm too nervous. I am, in fact, a perfect stranger. One of 40,000 here.
I wonder if she notices when I look up to see if she's smiling again. She watches people who walk by too. That's why I caught her smiling the first time. I think she saw someone do something funny.
I wish society didn't deem it strange for one girl to call another girl beautiful.
Maybe then I could have gone up and told her.
Instead of just writing about it
"Um...this may sound weird strange but you have a really pretty smile " I don't even know how I got over here, over, standing in front of her. I don't even know where this courage to speak came from. But I did. The words hung in the air.
And she smiled again.
"Thanks," she said. "That You really made my day."
I tried not to skip all the way to math.
Sitting in the shade of that tall tree,
A beautiful girl sat next to me.

I have a name, but Im dont want to tell you it. Actually, I dont need to tell you it, because even if you knew it, youd never find me.
Because there are probably more than a thousand of me-at least, people with the same name-around where I live, maybe millions worldwide.
Thus I live in this world, longing for individuality, but being individual makes you weird.
So Im not telling you my name because its really not that important.
This world I live in is strange. Everyone judges.
I live in a world where youre fat if you wear size six jeans, because the -cough- acceptable size is like -3.
I live in a world where music is cuss words and bad influences.
I live in a world where you can fail all through school but still make more money than those who tried.
In fact, I live in a world revolving around money.

Fireflies Part ITitle:You Said You Wanted FirefliesFireflies Part I3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Summary:A collection of fictlets involving various FFVII characters and fireflies. Part I: In Niblehiem, Tifa makes a wish and her "hero" grants it.
I live in a small town. You know the type: live there for a month and you already know everyone, the biggest crimes are some cocky eighteen-year-old trying to steal a pack of gum, there's one school for Pre K to College, etc. See what I mean?
That's what you get for living in Niblehiem.
But I'm not bashing my home. Honestly, I love it here. Especially in the early spring, the best season of the whole year. That's when all the fields are full to their limit with fireflies.
Sometimes, it's so bright from the little bugs' glow, it seems like it's day instead of night. Plus, the spring holds a special memory to me; the memory of true love.
Now, in this small town, everyone was friends. Except for one person.

A glass full of joy
When I look at you
The world seems to slow
How your lips move the certain way they do
How your eyes glisten the certain way they do
Apart from the rest and yourself you have always been
Never one to conform to the popular trend
And that is what I oh so love about you
How you aren't afraid to be you
How you don't care what anyone else thinks
Because in the end, what matters is what YOU think
And that makes me think worlds of you
You, this person of immense inspiration
A person who makes me feel like I can do anything
But you aren't a super hero
You are you, and I would ask for you no other way
For, were you any different, you wouldn't be you
And you without being you is no good
For in my eyes, there is only you
And without you, there is no me.

A love so dark
But oh love bequeath me
This feeling I have longed after for so long
Raven saturated locks ebbing and flowing with the wind
Starlight betraying the true nature of your beautiful hair
However raven like in the dark, but ever radiant in the day
A spring day
Lazily wandering through daisies, I watch you from afar
You know I am there, but you wait for me to make my move
And wasn't it you, love, who told me to make the first move?
The one who told me I was the one who had to engage you
Tell you how I feel
How the beauty of nature compliments your pretty face
And Lo! how you shine in such light
The moon's light cannot hold grace unto you
The sun's brightness cannot outshine your eyes
And oh those eyes.
How those gems gleam so radiant and with such love
The love I wish to feel, if you will only let me near
Past times have left me scarred
But your glow heals all wounds and keeps the demons at bay
If I only was as close as the wind upon your hai

Life is learning to speak with you mouth shut.
Life is learning how to defy gravity.
Life is walking through the drive through and running up the down escalator
Life is trying to laugh while crying and choking on tears
Life is laughing at everything, no matter how stupid
Life is expecting the unexpected
Life is horrible for a perfectionist
Life is public humiliation for the world to see
Life is a romantic comedy with a tragic yet predictable ending
Life is not fair is a redundant statement
Life is destroying the old reality and making your own
Life is faith
Life is fighting for what you believe in
Life is your own story, write it as you will
Life is the past and the past is the future
Life is preparing for the suicide self-inflected by living.
Life is saving the world even if its only in a video game.
Life is forgiving your worst enemy.

To have this guilt burning my soul

As calming as the night sky
Yet suffering is at my doorstep
Misery surrounds me
Will I never escape?
Im calling for you in my despair
Yet all I see is your blood on my hands
Your death before me
You lost to the world
The world I face alone
Trembling with each step I take
Trembling as I wait to die

You taunt my hatred of people who use the wrong "your/you're".
You laugh when a cupcake feels my burning wrath.
I ask you one question: "Why?"
Is it an wish of yours to make me cave to your wills and wishes?
Needless to say, this redundancy is redundant, but how come you done this?
You have to understand that everyone and his mother, in my humble opinion, seem to make a conscious effort to push the envelope when they break grammar rules and I am sick and tired of it.
I can not understand why you all don't find following the rules of grammar to be more preferable, or more funner, at least.
I simply enforce them fore purposes of comprehension. I do hope that tow truck won't be towing that line away before you can toe it.

Song of the Wind - writtenSong of the Wind - written5 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I dont remember when I became aware of the sound outside my room. Having been sleeping peacefully, the sound must have awoken me, yet I didnt feel as if I were awake. Odd that. The sensation of hearing something, not knowing what, and feeling still asleep yet knowing your awake. If I was but mortal I might have been afraid, but Im not. Not in this state of existence where an eternity is lived out in the time it takes for the sun to set and rise again. If you ask my kind they might well disagree, but this is my view of eternity. Every night is an eternity to be lived in the length from dark to light. No more and no less. But, I digress.
As I lay in my bed, the darkness in the room does not shield the shadowed light from outside, for it is already the night. The sound I hear is of something not usually of a routine I follow. Finally, I understand what it is Im hearing. The wind! Im hearing the wind, though not its usual sound. I listen for several more minut

I should have pressed on.
But I'm a coward.

I let fear think for me.
And now the fear has won.

OrangeOrange is the most vibrant colour I knowOrange5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That still has a softness to it.
It represents sweet citrus,
And tart tastes.
Orange is warm;
It almost seems fuzzy
Like a blanket of colour.
It is a wacky colour;
Still fresh in comparison to lime green.
It is a bright, and happier than the other colours
But sometimes in its simplicity it is mysterious.
I have never worn orange before
But I have often been told that it would look good on me.
Maybe this is a good time to prove them right.

The strong wall that protected me from the cutting wind

Ill unlock your spirit and mind.
