BesiktasUfağım, ilkokul sıralarında bir tıfıl,öğretmen bir anda gaza geldi "sınıfı çılgın gibi bağırtayim, süper eğleneyim" tadında takılmaya başladı ve dedi ki: "Ben bir takım adı söyleyeceğim, söyledigim takımı tutanlar bağıracak.

Önce "Feneeeer" dedi, bolca ses çıktı sınıftan. Sonra "Galatasaray" diye çığırttı, yine bolca ses... Ardından "Beşiktaş" dedi, bu kez azıcık adamdan bolca ses. Sonra yorum yaptı: "Fenerliler daha çok, Galatasaraylılar da fena sayılmaz, ama Beşiktaşlılar takımlarını daha bir gönülden tutuyor, onlar daha az ama sesleri daha gür çıktı!"
"Vay be" dedim içimden ve ben de gaza geldim.

"It all started here." Ed explained; the ruins of our old house in front of us. "There was the main room, our room, the kitchen, the basement, the memories; it sure does bring me back." Ed let out a small laugh, walking across where every room roughly was.
"I'm surprised there's still some ashes left and that they all haven't been blow away." I chuckled, scratching the back of my head; glass shattering from underneath Ed's left foot as he tread forward a step. Brother straight away peered down at the floor where the noise had come from. He crouched down and digged in the pile of rubble, he was standing on and pulled out a dusty cracked, wooden photo frame, which had a photo still in it. He shook the ashes out the cracked photo frame before lifting it up to show me.
"Al remember this photo? I'm surprised it's still in good condition." He said, facing it towards me. I stepped closer to him and glanced at the photo. It was a photo of us as young boys with mother, mum held
LonelinessLoneliness3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wish it was raining
Because I hate every beautiful day
Everyone's playing outside
Enjoying the weather
I hate it
I hate beautiful days
I hate being in a good mood
Just to pretend that everything's okay
All those fake smiles
All those people pretending to be alright
People being happy
Because I know
That I can't
It's not that I think they're not worth it
But knowing deep inside
That I'll never be like this
That I can't be like this at all
Makes my heart feel like a stone
Lying in my chest
Protesting to beat
It makes me wonder
Are there others?
Just feeling like me?
Just like me?
20 Reasons Why I Hate Twilight1) It's poorly written. Stephen King can back me up on SMeyer being a horrible writer.20 Reasons Why I Hate Twilight4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
2) Those are not vampires, they're sparkly fags. And by fag, I don't mean gay, I mean fag.
3) Edward is a 107 year old virgin. Can you say pathetic?
4) Bella has no redeeming qualities; she's a very weak main character. Physically she isn't strong. She can't run away right even; she trips too much. She's not smart, either, she's almost brain dead (come on, how long did it take her to figure out Edward was a vampire again?). She's not very pretty. She's not nice; she treats her friends horribly, and wants nothing to do with normal boys who aren't monsters. Somehow, everyone loves her, despite all this, which only makes her even more dislikable.
5) There is no plot. Or, if there is, it was so small I missed it.
6) Edward is abusive and a stalker.
7) Bella has absolutely no opposition to Edward stalking her. (In Buffy the Vampire slayer, Buffy tells Angel that girls don't like being stalked. She actuall

Must Love Cats
Fur of gold to pet and rub,
Perfect cat for me to love,
Razor claws and pointed teeth,
All the better made to keep,
A quick brush along silky fur,
Rewarded with a rumbling purr,
Given a glancing nuzzled kiss,
He is mine and I am his.

This tool of distortion
used to corrupt the
perceptions of reality
The world as I see
through clear lens
has messed my senses.
My obsession with capturing
unsought beauty has seized me
though, frustrated with
An image captured
for my collection of silly
things for me to ponder upon
Behind the camera
I feel safe, never
want to be the subject
of its eye.
-J-There is no blossom as J.'s smiles;-J-6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Starting in the silent kiss of our night
When the Moon is high and i the simple knight
And nothing but the leaves outside, to play the miles....
By the morning of her hands are blessed my kisses
And so dies, by the shape of her neck, peices by peices
Like little diamonds the breathing of a thousand souvenir
As she calls me back from her, and then, pulls me near...
Surely, i won't hold that love for longer than a breathing
Or keep that cold feeling, embrassing my sliding, fading soul
i' ll just stand for that selfish smile, when she has to warmly fall
Alone, someplace full of graces and pleasure she won't let me in....
A moment upon the Moon itself can't shine, for only does the Extasy
That blows out of her eyes, keeping at the door that lonely heart of mine
Alone, she will smile again, and that always kills me to see her easy
when being her only source of joy, i just remain, here, as a toy...on the line.
Guilt. Guilt's a funny thing. People feel guilt all too often for the most ridiculous reasons imaginable. It's like the word "sorry" people say it all too often for the most ridiculous reasons imaginable. However, those five letters tend to lose meaning when the same person utters them repeatedly about absolutely everything. So why doesn't the sharpness of the pains of guilt get duller over time, especially when that emotion is experienced constantly?Guilt.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Hi my name is Hypocrisy. I don't even really know what I did that won me this prize of guilt. But here I am, sittin' pretty with my reward. You would figure that since things were looking up for me, my frown would turn upside down as well. Wrong. But somehow, I'm able to fake that smile, so no one bothers me with an infinite amount of questions or annoys me with critiques and cliché pieces of advice.
