RecallingOnce, I forgot my limbs.Recalling7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
I left them downstairs because I was in such a rush to get up to the second floor. I didn't even realize my legs were missing until I was halfway up the stairs. "No matter," I thought, "I won't need them for a while anyway." Only when I tried to reach for a paintbrush did I realize that my left arm had done just that, and the right away. Again, I shrugged it off (with only my shoulders) and went about my business.
My business is rather unconventional. There's no elevator in my office building, because I work from home. Thus, forgetting my limbs downstairs would be, as you probably assume, a hassle. And, well, sure, it's a bit of an obstacle, but I can deal with it. I'm still here now, aren't I?
I asked my boss about installing an elevator once. No, he declined without a moment's consideration. Well, how about an escalator? Absolutely not. You see (he told it to me somewhat like this, but I fear that a few words are off), stair-climbing is a virtue. It isn't sup

The older of the two, that's Jack—and while we're on the subject, the younger one's Lawrence. God, just looking at them, you're reminded—they're the kind of people who can remind you—of what the difference is between the merely good-looking and the truly beautiful, between those of us who are fine to look at and those of us who are fine the same way a masterpiece is fine. These two men, our brothers, are really and truly handsome, so handsome it's almost painful sometimes to look at them.Dreamcatcher9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

I want to tell you you brighten my day
make all my problems disapear
I want to fall asleep in your arms
get lost forever in your eyes
I want to smile as you tease my hair
and forgive you anytime you say your sorry
I want to tickle your stomach
and tell you your sweet
I want to sit in the rain
holding your hand..
let the drops fall into my hair
lay under the stars
point them out
and get a kiss from you
I want to cry with hapiness
so you can wipe the tears from my face
I want to laugh when you tease me
and thank you when u please me
I wanna be with you for the time that I can
and be the person you trust.
I want to sing you to sleep
and touch your soft skin
I want to hold you when you cry
be there when you need me
I want to tell you your special
and be there to massage your back
I want to whisper in your ear
and and make you crazy
I want to be there to encourage you
and make you smile when your embarassed
I want to make you blush
and reassure you your the most beautiful person I know..
Waking Up With......You?Blue eyes opened to darkness. Shifting slightly to the left of their owner, fingers fumbled for the lantern. A soft glow took over the darkness of the cave room. Trying to focus was hard with the pounding in his brain as Deidara tried to sit up. A soft warm weight held him immobile. He glanced to his right casually running his eyes over the soft red hair of the head that lay on his arm.Waking Up With......You?5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Deidara smirked at the sight of the sexy red head next to him. All of a sudden the alarm bells went off in his head. What the hell was Sasori doing in his bed and what the hell happened last night?
They had all gotten a little drunk, celebrating the capture of the One Tail. Leader had gave them time off from their missions long enough to celebrate a successful transition of the demon. The night was all a blur t

Kale opened his silver eyes tiredly to feel his gut going tight. Morning already? He groaned and lifted his free hand to rub at his face, which had gotten a bit cool in the early morning air. He glanced down to the small girl on top of him, his ears tilting back with a little smile. She had stayed with him though he wondered if it was because he had kept an arm around her the whole time.
His eyes slid to the clock, early, very early. He carefully sat up, holding the small pup close. He didn't want to wake her but he knew it was time to leave. He sighed, his ears drooping to realize that he wouldn't be able to say good bye to the small girl. He stood up the best he could in the short ceiling and placed her in the couch where he had laid. She curled up into it but her hand roamed, as if to find him in the couch.
Kale quickly went to the coat closet and got a heavy coat, he knew she would be cold without his warmth, his own fur prickled at the cold he co

"S-Sorry I didn't really expect to have company in here." He murmured, glancing over at Jaclyn in mid-cleanup only to stop when he saw her smile. He carefully knelt down, placing his clothes in one pile with his own smile. "I didn't know you could smile, young one."
Jaclyn perked and stared at the older man for a moment before her eyes dropped to the ground. "I can talk too you don't have to speak for me all the time." She said, taking a peek over to him to see him looking right back at her.

and their shine brings something new,
will you be there?
When I'm holding hands with you
and admire the things you do,
will you even care?
When your plans all fall through
and I am still here for you,
will you sit and stare?
When our world crashes soon
and our hearts become confused,
will you still be there?
We can converse amongst a garden of gentle embrace
Until the stars wilt willingly like celestial roses;
Resting beyond eternity above a sea that never fades
With a love that never dies and a bond that only grows...
When all that's left is love, will you still be there?

Shows how much of a monster you are

You took away their happiness
Their hearts once were filled with love
Now they are empty
The childhood you took away from these kids
Their happiness, their joy, their trust
They're so young but faced more than any person has faced in this world
You destroyed their homes, their lives
You killed their families
But you don't care
They will never be the same
Living a life in fear
You don't hear their cries
You just left them starve to death while you destroyed their homes and made yours
Run with the wolvesRun with the wolves6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Wolves howl at the moon.
Because they are calling the pack?
Experts say yes because it seems logical.
This is not true.
If you ever hear them, you will understand.
Mourn the loss of their comrades
who fell in battle.
Those who fell in the endless, secret war
against those who would destroy
Those who in the old days fought hand-to-jaw
now fight, no destroy with fire and steel.
They destroy so that they can have a comfortable chair.
Or a coat.
The wolves weep.
Once undefeated, now knows defeat.

Right now Team 7 had to go to Toys R Us. But the problem was that they didn't' know why.
"Because the new Dora the explorer magical castle is coming out today and I want to buy it for me… I mean my niece," Kakashi said, trying to cover up his love for Dora the explorer.
"Oh I watch that show every morning!" Sasuke said, getting excited.
"You watch Dora the Explorer?" Naruto laughed at Sasuke.
"Hey! Dora the Explorer is cool!" Sakura yelled at Naruto, but was only really saying that because Sasuke likes it. "And besides, you just don't like it because you don't understand Spanish!"
"…Spanish?" Naruto questioned, confused. "I thought the show taught little kids German not Spanish."
It was quiet for a while after Naruto said that. Probably because the three were thinking on how Naruto even knew the alphabet.

So many emotions
Had my heart torn when
I heard you cry
to not be able to
simply be by your side.
You do not deserve to
suffer , cry or even doubt

a life filled with
music , smiles and laughter

I yearn I could wither away
and simply make a wish
for the wind to carry me
a current made out of will
to be with you
to show I care for you.
In these moments
I simply want to testify
of the affection that
I have for the person you are
were and will ever be

my unlimited devotion.
In these moments
Of doubts and confusion
I felt the urge
to confess you
That you could rely
on myself to
help you through...
In these moments
of doubts and confusion
I felt innocently
that maybe I could muster
the mighty power of words
to bring back for a second
The purity of your smile.

Jackie unlocked the door and yanked it open, yelping at the cold rush of wind hurrying to gobble up her warmth in the house. After composing herself she opened her eyes, prepared to see maybe Jamie but that was not who she was staring at.
Her jaw dropped and blinked at him stupidly for a few moments. He was leaning down, a hand under the doorframe as if he was going to pull it up higher before he grinned down at her, kneeling and reached out, pulling her into him quickly in a tight hug. "Hey, you spunky little female!" He cried happily. She could just see that tail wagging on his backside as she was crushed into him.
She blushed in a dark red and couldn't help herself from squirming under the stronger being's arms.
