the backs of my eyes are splattered with rain and other substances
my tears aren't for you, but because
i can't remember the colour of your eyes.
the way our hands were made for each other sent mercury through my veins,
steel cold mercury bright as blood,
brighter than love
i never asked you if you knew that mercury thermometers were
[either way, i'm past boiling point.]
you told me i was beautiful
and i don't cry because of those words,
i cry because i believed them.
the porcelain is cold and unforgiving and hard
harder than glass
than my heart
and the ripples are evenly spaced,
even now, i can't remember the colour of those eyes.

But don't you know
I'm sour? Like a lemon
with an extra dose
of acid added, enough kick
to take your taste buds
and gums and burn them
bright red and raw,
Would you be happy then?
I'm the rotten Clementine
that came in the bottom
of the box that you threw away.
I'm the one who finally
who cracked the mold,
who thought outside of the box
and actually managed
to get myself out of the box,
though I went straight into the trash.
Which is better?
Should I let you throw me away,
and take my chances
with the rest of the trash,
or should I climb back out
and perch myself
on the counter, in your view,
and pray you don't notice me?
I'm the due-date-overdone
gallon of milk sitting
in the very back of your fridge,
with only a sip or two left in me,
but turned from a beautifully
perfect white to a yellow
that's thick and lumpy
unwanted, no doubt about it.
When you do finally decide
to get rid of me, I bet you won't
have the guts to take me
and simply dump me

Here lies Death, its back lying on the ground
No one knew how he died, he was just recently found
Some say he committed suicide
But the doctors found no trace of cyanide
But yet either way here he lies
Among the maggots and the flies
It doesn't matter how he gained his freedom
It doesn't matter why
It does matter; however, who killed him
And why he made him die
For is not death the beauty of the living?
For without it can we reallyexist?
It is said that without black, white would mean nothing
Without green could red be the color of mist?
Without death nothing can be free
So why do we always struggle not to die so fast
As one man courageously said
"My dream is to be Free! Free at LAST!"
And so where should we seek life
But in the beauty of death
Who said that druggies were bad
Why couldn't "God" give us meth
Because according to many, god gave us everything
But quite frankly I don't understand
He said he would grant us everlasting life,
But what is everlasting li

Gilbert was pissed.
Not in the 'holy crap I should NOT have had that last beer' kind of way. No. He was pissed in the 'why the hell do Austrians always have to piss on my fireworks' kind of way.
He hadn't even done anything. Antonio and Francis had turned up for a few drinks, a fairly normal occurrence. They'd spent the best part of an hour seeing who could sing their national anthem the loudest. Antonio's effort was impressive, considering his had no words. This was also, fairly normal. Francis had managed to disappear completely for around forty five minutes. Again, they were used to this. When he had returned, he brought with him a giggling, slightly drunk, university student. This was practically a tradition. However, he didn't usually screw said student on Roderich's piano. Which is precisely what had happened. Turned out he wasn't too thrilled about the idea on Francis' butt prints on his precious instrument. Francis and Antonio had managed to escape before Ro

This red light around me serves as no condolence
Nor do these fellow creatures who seem so absent-minded... What!
Why does this fool get near me!? This is not something of my tolerance!
I can't take this, get out of my face! Stay away from me, go elsewhere to run amok!
Are my growls not enough to deter you from my space!?
I'm growing impatient, get away from my place!
Must I stand and scream at you to get you to go away!?

"Ve, Lovi! Why do we have to walk so fast?" Feliciano whined as he tried to catch up with his brother. Lovi... or Lovino, as he preferred to be called, huffed from a few paces away from his whining younger twin and replied haughtily, "Because it's dark, cold and I'm hungry damnit! Now hurry the fuck up! I'm not waiting for you again!"
The other Italian brother hurried to catch up and he fell in step with Lovino. He nervously looked at the other male and despite his bad mood, he struck up conversation, "Ve, Lovi! Don't you think it was nice that we got let off work early tonight? That means I get to talk to Ludwig longer"
"Why do you still talk to that bastard?" Lovino asked with a scowl. He really didn't like his brother's new boyfriend Ludwig. He hated him from day one... the moment he heard that ridiculous German accent, the Italian decided he loathed him. He absol

"It goes against many religions, New York! What will you do if people start bombing churches that hold these gay marriages you plan on having?!" America countered.
"Don't talk to me about bombs, Alfred! My son NYC has had enough talk of that! This isn't about churches or religion!" she yelled, pounding her fist on America's desk, a stack of papers collapsing to the floor.

He knew this was a great idea, but damn he didn't know Lovino would look this good.
"Hey, bastard! What are you looking at?" Lovino grumbled, irritated by the fact that the Spaniard just stood there staring, not saying a word. Antonio couldn't take his eyes off him... or rather he couldn't take his eyes off his legs. Goddamn, those legs looked good in that nightdress. And the glasses suited him too. Antonio knew the Italian would look good in anything, even that grandmother bonnet he sported.
He knew that Little Red Riding Hood was a good theme for this year's Halloween!
Lovino looked good.
Lovino looked absolutely fucking adorable.
...Lovino was pointing a shot gun at him.
"Don't fucking stare, asshole!"
"But you look so cute!" Antonio cooed, ignoring the fact that there was a gun pointed at his face as he approached the Italian with a big grin. Lovino ste

At Pip's exit, Aerin looked around a bit awkwardly. "So "
"If you say anything about me needing furniture too, I'll kick your ass," Damien said out of the blue. Pip had mentioned that morning that Damien needed more furniture since the apartment was extremely bare. He just didn't want to hear it again.
Confused, Aerin just said, "W-What?"
"Uh," Damien turned his head away with a light blush; he'd forgotten Aerin didn't know anything about him and Pip's conversation, "nothing."
Silence settled in between the two friends. Damien could see the emotions of jealousy and worry Pip tried to mask, and it concerned him. Maybe it wasn't a good idea to have let the blonde leave alone with that look on his face, but he knew he would've just gotten a quick lecture on being a good host and ended up staying at the apartment anyway. Confronting him about it would've been a waste of time.

The meeting was not even half way through yet and Lovino wanted to die in a hole. Why, you might ask? Well, there's that insane Danish nation seated on his right- yes, the one who keeps stroking that insanely large axe of his and winking at a very mortified-looking Norwegian seated across the long table. Then on his left was the small trembling nation that lived near Russia... Latvia, was it? Then opposite him was that perverted French bastard that made strange kissy-faces at everyone and anyone he could, the potato bastard who happened to be in his field of vision and next to him was the tomato bastard.
The tomato bastard: otherwise known as Antonio Fernandez Carriedo, or Spain. But to Lovino, the tomato bastard was a fine enough name for him.
There he was, sitting there smiling at him at every opportunity he got. Before the meeting started the Southern Italian had worked hard to avoid the persistent Spaniard. He hid under tables and behind anyone who was standing

I made it clear.
"If you still care,
come talk to me.
If you don't anymore,
I have nothing to say. "
You chose the latter,
you didn't even say thanks.
You don't care anymore,
maybe you never did.
I guess that will never be for me to know.
You don't care,
why should I?
You have left me,
with no reason to care.
You weren't worth my time,
it was a mistake opening up to you.
I had let you get the better of me,
and handed you the power to tear me down.
I gave you a choice,
you took the one I hoped not for.
You don't care anymore,
there's no reason for me to.
I have nothing to say.
the choice was yours.
Don't come running to me,
the next time you crash.
Because, I won't turn a hair,
or give you a second of my time.
I will show no sympathy,
or offer any comfort.
You will not lie in my arms,
and we won't be talking long into the nights.
Sure, you understood me well.
Sure, you thought me a lot.
Sure, you meant a lot to me,

That I have changed
And that everyone else has stayed the same
That I've evolved into something beyond
That which I used to be.
But sometimes, I like to pretend
That I'm the one who's stayed the same

And that's why things aren't as they used to be.
I like to pretend
That maybe someday
We'll have this whole thing rearranged
And that maybe
We won't live in a world carefree
But a world more at peace than it used to be.
That maybe we'd have finally made a recovery
That this bad economy
Was after all really just temporary
That the war would finally be ending
And we'd have just a little bit of peace
Before the next breakout of killing sprees.
I don't dream of a world where everything is fine
Because that is such a thin, thin line
That we just imagine we see.
But what I believe
Is that this world is just as it's always been
That these wars won't ever really end
That these grudges by the fine countrymen
Will be carried on by futu

We keep our frozen faces
in our open cooler. So hard to dance

We keep forgetting
time fireflies. It is the only thing

Glowing windows frame

Slabs of meat, solid
slabs of meat. There is no age

Dead people driven
from the cold. We burn or bury,

In the raw before the snow
all feelings shiver. The distance between
two people touching?
Come thaw, the rot is always brought to light.

I boarded the first train destined for the future.
Luggage light and no distracting thoughts.
Whatever would be should be.
I have always been a safe passenger,
the world has smoothly passed me by;
beautifully fenestrated walls
framing the faces and places
rushing past my shaded escape
in mutual illusion like celluloid strips.
At the transit station
I should have checked the itinerary
and felt the parabolic apex of the ground
beneath my eager feet.
Chasing towards my pointless destination
without a single station puncturing the way
I stay on track for my personal decay.
Still, I clench the rabbit's foot and open my pristine eyes:
nothing derails like waking up and finding yourself
naked and leashed.
I quake my existence in rebellion.
I am thrown off the last train I will ever board
In the impact crater
my mind and body break and mend again.
I can take my first true steps for the rising sun.
Dazed and fazed I climb the nearest rise
and find the uncharted hills bec
