Backstage, I was talking with Dennis and Shane about how surreal this whole experience has been as I straightened my red tie and looked into the mirror at my black raiment. It was our final show for "On Frail Wings Of Vanity and Wax" and all six of us had red ties and black dress clothes. As I turned back towards Dennis, in an act of caprice, he flung his arms around me and said, "thanks for starting this band with me, Shawn". Dumbstruck, I nodded and returned the hug. As he released me, I realized something. All the money in the world is chaff compared to this band; this band leaves me in a state of felicity. If I could take this band beyond temporal constrains , I would give up all my opulence to play forever with these guys.
"Alright guys, it's time!" or manager was saying as he approached us with viands, "you have two minutes". Without a word, we picked up our instruments and started walking. We passed Craigery Owens as his band left the stage; I am proud to say that I ungrudgingly

To mold my heart.
Its been in your hands,
Right from the start.
My words they're short.
My soul is bitter.
I just don't care.
I refuse to hit her.
My walls, they crumble.
My shields recede.
I start to get hopeful.
My heart could be freed.
A dream of course,
How could I believe.
That maybe one day.
So happy I'd be.
Invisible to her,
To others as well.
Alone I shall stand.
Alone in my hell.
Alesana: The EmptinessI am here to tell you a story, a story that will torture your thoughts by day and poison your dreams by night.

The Curse of the Virgin Canvas
The sun's rays seeped through the window; I lay awake in the bed and smiled slightly. I pushed the covers down and rolled onto my side facing the one I love. Her long bleach blond hair and short white dress almost matched perfectly with the sheets on the bed. I leaned over her and kissed her, her side of the room was dark, the light only reaching the edge of the bed. I kissed her again and placed my hand on her shoulder.
"Annabel," I whispered her name and she didn't re

I hear the sorrowful creaking of old swings down by the lake. We used to play on them, wed pretend we were flying. The chains are rusted, the bright yellow seats are now dingy but something about them

The sun had almost set over the water when your junked car pulled in. You eyes were sad as you found me sitting on the swings. I wanna go back to yesterday I mouthed. The wind began to pick up and it took you
Away without an answer
I was watching the clouds when you came running down the dock. My feet slipped and we both went down into the dark waters. Panic swelled in my chest, I couldnt swim. But your arms wrapped around me
And together I learned to float
Laying under the stars made me feel small and in a way afraid. My frail hands would tremble as my finger tips tried to touch the stars and the planets. Sadly the closet Ill ever get to reaching heaven
Is the fire flys in my clenched fist
You could get me high with a kiss; l
WinterSilver shredsWinter7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The midnight mist,
I bid farewell
To the girl I kissed,
I walk the night,
To hide the sight
Of the midnight winter
I wrap in black
The sword I keep,
Whose name means
But I wield it not,
The sword I wrought,
For tears now blot
My frozen eyesight.
Through the trees
I set my path,
Though the night
Is cold and bitter,
I feel refreshed,
For I am meshed
With the icy frost
Because I am night,
And my blade is bright,
Though I kill with just a whisper,
My breath is cold,
My soul is old,
And I am the god of winter.
Ripper LullabyMy dear, I do not mean you well--Ripper Lullaby8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I mean to open up your chest
and see what mangled mess did dwell
behind your loose, much-handled breast.
I mean to, on the acrid air,
taste that which once your veins carressed.
I mean to finger your insides
and know each soft and cooling part--
your calloused knees and glassy eyes,
your blackened lungs and ruined heart.
Some place where no one will pass by
I mean to take you all apart.
I'll slit your throat just so, dear miss--
you will not have a chance to scream--
razors were made bad girls to kiss,
to open them to drain and dream.
You'll barely feel its gentle touch.
I do not think you'll mind it much.
Alice and Jasper's WeddingThis was it. It felt as though this day had creeped slowly up on her; It was with mixed feelings of anxiety and eagerness that June 14th had arrived. Alice Cullen had been told, by her might-as-well-be mother, Esme, that she was not to do a thing to assist her in planning. "You're always working so hard for other people's ceremonies," Esme had teased, "Let me take care of yours. Don't worry, I'm sure I'll do just fine. Leave it to me." And, with this, Alice knew that everything would be taken care of. Everything would fall into place with this special day cradled in the careful hands of Esme Cullen.Alice and Jasper's Wedding7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It had been nearly three months ago that Jasper had proposed. Leaning down on one knee, he pulled an extravagant diamond ring out of his worn pockets, and asked Alice to marry him. To Alice, it was no surprise. It didn't take a future-teller to realize that this proposal had been coming. Her answer was wholeheartedly yes, of course. The couple had only known each other for just over a year,

Kyo's loveTohru was making dinner in the kitchen.Kyo's love7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Kyo knew because he was secretly watching her. It had been pretty funny, if that damn rat hadn't joined him! But that wasnt really anything Kyo could do anything about. It had been Yukis idea after all. Kyo wondered why he went along with the idea of his hated enemy, maybe because spying on Tohru seemed like a good idea? Nah, probably because he always got that weird tingling feeling in his stomach whenever he thought about that silly, happy girl.
It hadnt been like that from the start though. At first, he used to think that she was damn annoying, always making a lot of noise and always being too kind for her own good, but after he had got to know her and becoming friends, he understood that she was one of the cutest, happiest, kindest and definitely the most worried person he knew. And she wasnt worried about herself, no, she was always worried about other people. When he asked her why she didnt care more about hers

Ribbons in her hair and scars beneath her sleeves
Her soul is slowly dying as tormentors turn to thieves
The mask on her face doesn't cover her eyes
So she can't cover her sorrow with her lies
She's so beautiful
She's so sorrowful
Trace your veins with this blade,
Still the fiery flames of hate
Your pleasures pain, a steel caress,
You hide your hurt, shield your distress
She's so beautiful
She's so sorrowful
When comes the time for pain to end?
Until that day your heart descends
Your soul gives up, your life decays
You'll find no cause to change your ways
There's no chance to save her anymore
Her soul is scarred; she's lost this war

I lay there, not sure if this was some pleasant dream or reality, my body pinned against my rumpled bed by his. He gazed into my eyes, his pupils were dilated, making his eyes appear like empty voids of nothingness that burnt into my soul, searching. His face was breathtakingly beautiful as his cold, grey lips turned up into a small, childish smirk. My heart spluttered insanely within my chest and I was most certain he had heard because he let out a quiet throaty chuckle and placed a slender hand upon my chest, feeling my heart hammering against his touch. As his hand came into contact with me, I let out a short choked gasp. He was so cold. Even though my t-shirt created a barrier between his touch and my blushing skin, I felt chilled to the bone and the shock was like the kind you would suffer from if you were to dive into an icy lake. I felt his ice touch leave me and he pulled away, a worried expression upon his chalky face.

Dear Gerard WayDear Gerard Way,Dear Gerard Way7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Let me start off by simply saying that you are one of my biggest heroes. And no, it's not because you sing in a band I like (although like is a painful understatement), because I find you aesthetically attractive, or even because you take the time to write your own music. It's because you inspire me. You've overcome drug and alchoholism. You managed to pull yourself out of a depression that probably would have ended in your death. The fact that you saved yourself has inevitably saved others-myself included. All in all, you're an amazing human being and I aspire to possess your laid-back demeanor and your rationality.
But there's also another thing. If you've managed to find this, you've probably already noticed that you tend to be a character in many of the things that I (along with several hundred-if not thousand-other people) have written over the past several months. I suppose there's a strange sort of taboo in doing this, seeing as you're a real, breathing h
