Midnight VisionsThe moment between a dream and awakeMidnight Visions6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I saw you
With your ever backwards gate
A small smile
Honeynut brown eyes
Like a distant forgotten memory
I lay in bed, half awake
Can I let myself fall deeper into a slumber
So that I may see once again my long lost lover
Or do I push away the memory
As I wake up, and prepare myself
Its going to be an empty day.

The soil soaked in the blood of fallen friends, of fallen comrades.
Day after day of war, of blood.
Watching friends lie in pain, suffering before my eyes.
Night through day, day through night.
One by one we fell,
Under constant fire.
Blood covered faces, saddened by loss
Saddened by pain.
Night through day, day through night.
Four long years of pain.
Many of my friends gone.
But today we stand survivors.
Survivors of war.
Night through day, day through night.
I remember those days,
Each morning filled with dread.
I stand here today,
To say, Lest We Forget.
One Curious GirlYou're sinking. Something's pulling you down. You move your arms wildly, trying to fight the downward pull. You're in the water and you can feel the life draining from you. You don't know how long you can keep your head above the murky gray water.One Curious Girl5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was dark. That's the first thing you remember. The sun was not out, despite it being day. You looked to the sky, searching. But the sun was blocked out by clouds. The day seemed to float in between day and night. It wasn't bright, nor was it dark. You could still see in front of you.
You were in a forest -- you knew this because of the trees that surrounded you. There was little else, no animals, no human life. Only you. You remember the absolute quiet. There was no wind, no birds, not a footstep for miles. It was warm, you remember longing for a cool breeze, but none came.
Your head breaks the water, and you take in a deep breath of air before you're sucked back down again. You open your eyes, and though you're still

Pouring down endlessly
As I play victim to
Your paranoia, schizophrenic nature
While you play loveslave to my
Obsessive, clingy and overbaring nature
And yet somehow, as hard as it may seem
The guilt in me
Begets the hurt in you
Begets the lost in me
And the need for love in you
That's why you were all I ever wanted
Silhouettes.There's never beauty without feeling,Silhouettes.5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
there's never emotion without pain,
there's never tears without motive.
There's never silence without noise,
or we'd be deaf to the world outside.
There's never hiding without fear,
or we'd be constantly in the dark.
There's never thirst without missing,
or we'd have drowned by now.
There's never inside a place with no windows,
only curtains that are too dirty.
There's never a door you cannot open,
only locks we've lost the key to.
There's never blood without a cut, a bruise,
there's never nothing without having had something.
There's never a message without a meaning,
there's never a word without writing.
Silences are thickened by fear.
More silences are born of pain.
More silences are brought by time.
I'd cut my arms if it'd show the words on my blood.
I'd cut my heart out if it'd show the truth in its movement.
I'd cut off my feet if it'd show my will to stand still.
This is a cold place, where teardrops freeze before hitting the glass table,
Dreams just aheadDreamsDreams just ahead6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A place of fascination without any real destination
Places we would like to dwell
realms of illusions sometimes left behind
But for an instant they were there
Gave happy thoughts and hopes
Unveiling a way that came to me with a smile
and I walked hoping time would bring it back
not for an instant but for a lifetime
Crushing leaves beneath my feet a breeze upon my face
Tasting life as fall slowly comes back my way
Yet another road ahead
the distance makes me want to look aback to a safer place
but safer is non exsistant there is always risk
there is always reality, as harsh as it may seem
what can we do but continue to walk
wherever it may lead...
Come my way somewhere sunny day
Bring me smiles once again
Give me a chance to sing yet once more

La trilogie des printemps.
Ici, le printemps est une trilogie du temps.
C'est un fruit fragile qui s'ouvre en trois pelures.
Il s'en vient en douce et se sauve à toute allure.
Et un jour on se dit que c'était le printemps.
C'est une entre saison d'un temps qui se compose
D'un hiver qui s'étire pour ne pas partir,
D'un délavé austère où tous les bruns chavirent
Et d'un temps où les fleurs et tous les verts explosent.
La saison du printemps blanc allonge l'hiver,
Cet amant éconduit qui lutte et qui s'accroche.
Plein de chutes de neige en rappel des hier
Où le froid mordait même l'acier et les roches.
La neige fraîche tombée au sol le matin,
L'ivresse troublante d'une chair frémissante
Que la douce clarté habille gémissante
Tel le nacre du sperme léchant une main.
Le froid qui mord la nuit et l'insensibilise,
Le soleil qui tente de réchauffer le jour.
Les matins et soirs basculant presque touj

They stain my lips and tear my heart..
I'm out to start a one-man coup,
While I'm just a pathetic few..
And once again I stand aside,
With wish and whim and alibi..
But soon enough I'll see the end,
For there's just one last soul to rend..
It's time to face my greatest fears,
And fly away on downy tears..

Roxas hissed as his ring tone echoed through his room.

Roxas flipped open the black Razr2 and spoke viciously into the phone.
I swear to God, Sora, if you call one more time, Im never going to let you tie me to the bed ever!
Said boy paused.
Oh hi Axel.
The pyro chuckled over the phone.
Tied to the bed?
Roxas blushed before clearing his throat in embarrassment. Sorry, Axel, I thought you were Sora.
Axel chuckled again. I could tell. Me and Demyx are about to leave for the mall.
NaruSaku - Suicide part 13She snuck in through the third floor window, the crude stone wall had provided enough footing for a relatively easy ascend. It was a vacated, it had been so for weeks since the last who had rented it had moved out. Panoe pulled her mask over her mouth, she didnt plan on being spotted but there was no sense advertising her face if she was, she put her ear to the door, silence. She slowly opened the door, not a sound, she didnt expect it to creak she had oiled its hinges herself, any unnecessary sound could mean her death in this place, the castle was owned by a baron von Shajita, a warlord with a nasty reputation and legendary skills with a heavy broadsword, and it was said that a wizard also lived in the castle, a preacher of the dark arts who could create explosions of flames with nothing but a strange black powder.NaruSaku - Suicide part 136 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

The rain didn't ease up for days. Ed listened to the steady pitter patter of raindrops hit the car. Why they had decided to drive from East City to Resembool was beyond him. They would have saved some massive time taking the train. The weather didn't seem to ease up the closer they got to his hometown either. It actually seemed to get even more gloomy, if that was at all possible. To say he was dreading this week would be and understatement. The only thought that lightened his mood was being with Roy. They were always so busy with work now, they barely had time for each other anymore. It would be nice to spend some much needed time with his boyfriend. Of course, not one to show his affection with other people around, he kept that side to himself. Of course, Oliver on the other hand was the exact opposite of him when it came down to showing affection in public. Although, Oliver seemed to be over affectionate, and quiet frankly it freaked Ed out at times

NaruSaku - SuicideI guess this is what needs to be done. Naruto thought to himself.NaruSaku - Suicide6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The woods were silent this time of year, they always were. A single bird forgot its place in the winter wonderland and allowed its voice to be heard against the cold winter sky. They had been here once before, the three of them together in a joyful moment, they had been laughing together back then, but the only sound that could be heard now was the sound of a single bird, singing its song in a cold snowy forest. The Wind rushed through the leaves, suggesting that it had places to be, friends waiting beyond the forest, and that this was just a detour through a silent part of the forest.
Naruto shivered as the cold wind rushed past him, his jacket no longer offered protection against the cold; it was torn to pieces, ripped open by swords and fangs, and splattered with the blood that had spilled from the wounds. But even though his clothes were torn, there was no longer a single scratch on his body, as usual his
Elle and Mias: Chapter 8To Elle's surprise, Mias gave up trying to catch her after only a few minutes. She waited behind a discreet broom closet door for nearly fifteen minutes before she squeezed herself out from under the door, shook her furry little body free of dust, and scurried over to the front door. She didn't care what form she escaped in, she simply wanted out. Once again she tried to push herself out under the door, but the front doors fit too well against the frame work to make a crack big enough for even a mouse to slip through.Elle and Mias: Chapter 84 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Ever the optimist, Elle ran through the entry to the back corridors and into the dining room. She remembered seeing a large balcony off the back wall. Perhaps the doors that opened up to it would be easy to get through.
She felt out of breath running a rather short distance, but managed to reach the doors without stopping to take a break. Again she tried to squeeze herself under the door and this time too, was unsuccessful.
She plopped down on her behind and stared up at

Ichirakus ramen bar was filled with people on this cold day, all of them trying to get their hands on some of Ichirakus steaming hot ramen to keep them warm in the cold.
So, why are you here in Konoha? Naruto was slurping down some of Ichirakus ramen as he spoke Not that I mind or anything, but the journey from the Hidden village of the tide to Konoha is a pretty long one isnt it?
Well... Gin said, putting down his third bowl of ramen and leaning back, finally full. As you know the Tide village is pretty new, its only been a few months since we started taking on assignments and while we can attract enough customers to keep things running from a ninja standpoint, we cant do it from a political standpoint. Gin continued as Naruto didnt seem to understand the problem, at least that was what Gin was getting from the ramen muffled sounds that Naruto was making. You

Cool breezes brush the sunny heat
off pale freckled skin and
Hazel-brown eyes look up
watching the blue and white movement in the sky
through the dancing leaves surrounding white tree-bark
Soft cool velvet tickles the senses
and she drinks it in through smiles and heartbeats
High on the scent of pink rose petals
Elle and Mias: Chapter 6Elle awoke just before dawn. She had rolled onto her stomach in the night and had her limbs sprawled every which way on the bed. With Mias provided more than adequate warmth, the covers were pushed to the edge of the bed. Yet Elle now felt strangely cold. She tilted her head up and noticed her smock was on the floor with the rest of the clothes Abernos had given her. She then glanced at Mias who had his head nestled against the arch of her back.Elle and Mias: Chapter 64 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Filthy bastard," she said in a rough voice. Her throat and chest still ached, but at least her fever was gone.
She cautiously pulled herself out of bed, not wanting to wake Mias. His head dropped onto the mattress and thankfully didn't disturb him. Heaving a silent sigh of relief, Elle swung her legs over the bed and yawned. She rubbed her eyes and scratched her hair while she looked down at the floor. She noticed Mias' trousers had also mysteriously appeared on the floor.
Elle glared back at him, willing her anger to give him nightmares. He t

I mentally slapped myself and sighed as I forced myself to stop looking at the blonde who was on his way into the café. My job was simply to serve, not to stand and ogle him like some pervert. But I so wanted to learn to know him! He had been coming to this place at least 1 time a week. Sometimes as often as 3 or 4, and he usually came with a small group of friends. And it was thanks to his friends that I had caught his name. Roxas.
