My Story...In the first few weeks, everything was so easy. A loving mother to nurture, a strong father to protect. It was as if the world was so perfect nothing could hurt us. I was taken outside and handed to a strange man when I was only a month old. He stroked me and talked to me, seeming to adore me. That was just an act.My Story...4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I was isolated in a metal crate. It was dark and cold. I watch the man go upstairs and leave me alone with several others around my age. None of us know what is going on. We're scared.
By the time I turn 2, I'm bigger and stronger. I get occasional strokes from the man but never anything that comes close to love. I see him look at me and smirk, "You're ready." he says. I'm taken off a treadmill and placed inside an enclosed plywood ring. I see another dog barking and growling at me. I lift my lips and snarl back. It's what I was raised to do.
When I turn 3, I've already killed 5 dogs and injured many others. I am known as a 'champion'. When I'm put in the ring again, I se

Will the leaves that transcend time tell me
A place not far from here
To cast these feelings into the night
Like paper into the waning moon
If I cannot be that sparrow
That soars in your heart's ardent sky
Then allow me to be that demon
Who harbors all your pain
And I will be content with it
I shall become that selfish demon
Who will gladly devour all your anguish and hatred
Oh sacred winds and heavenly sky
To see with eyes unclouded by hatred
That fate cannot overcome our half-hearted choices
The leaves that transcend time
Voice to my graceful wings
To scatter these feelings
But in my dreams my heart will faintly remain
As a sparrow at the end of my reincarnation
Blue ExperienceI fell in love with her eyes,Blue Experience3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Leaning over a coffee shop counter,
Grubby, worn wood holding it's own charm,
The smell of coffee,
Nothing compared to her eyes.
As she handed me the cup.
I was mesmerised from the moment,
Chuck a few coins in the tip box,
Just for those eyes.
I went in more after that,
Hoping she'd be there,
We'd talk surrounded by
Softly glowing fairy lights,
As she'd wipe down tables.
I'd sit there with a newspaper,
But I didn't really pay attention.
All that mattered was her voice,
Soft and special as if just for me.
But I fell in love with her eyes first.
That would sparkle like the seas
From my childhood
Every time she'd laugh.
As I walked in once again,
With a ring of the bell
That matched her tinkling giggle perfectly,
Sweet, that smile with her dimples,
As her cheeks flushed red,
But I fell in love with her eyes first.
Brilliant, aquamarine eyes,
That haunted me.
Through our conversations that revealed
Her to me.
She was perfect.
She's Perfect to MeWhen I watch a movie with my arm on the back of the couch, I wish you were in my arms.She's Perfect to Me3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
And in every movie when there is a main couple, all I see is you and me.
In the movie theaters when there are couples cuddling, I am jealous as hell to see them.
When I lay in a hammock in the sun reading a book, I wish you were reading one lying next to me.
I think of that couple from Up sitting in chairs, holding hands, and reading their books.
I really wish I had a hammock of my own so I could lie and read with you.
When I hear a song on the radio about love, I wish I had a better voice so I could sing them all to you.
I think of all the romantic poems I've read and they all remind me of how I feel for you.
I look back at all of my failed attempts at writing for you and wish I could have done better.
When I see couples holding hands or kissing or cuddling, I want to cry because I know we can't.
I get more jealous than anything when I see happy couples that don't have to hide anything.
I would wish

I last held you in my arms.
An entire year since I've felt
The soft caress of your skin on mine,
The gentle touch of your sublime lips.
I'm going mad.
I'm stuck in this cycle,
I've tried to put my love for you aside,
But I can't.
You are always there.
Always, and never.
I miss you,
So much that it feels like my very soul is on
Hold me again.
Tell me that you love me,
Just once more.
I need you.

The rain washed over us. The kind of rain that soaks through all the layers. Settling deep within you. Cleanses the soul. And here we are, in nothing more than night clothes, fingers laced, eyes closed, standing in the rain.
Body to body...
Every sense was attuned to the growing proximity. Drunk off the very nearness of you. Aware of the building heat between us as we huddled closer for warmth. Arms tangled around eachother, cheeks pink, grinning. Not needing to speak. Content.
Breath to breath...
Evidence of our laughter fogging the air between us. Wispy trails of steam in the cold night. So many breaths and yet my lungs are not empty. They are still aching with the many breaths that I long to share with you. Look up at me. Can't you tell?
Heartbeat to heartbeat...
Shifting in slow motion. Your lips graze, ever-so-softly, against mine. Everything goes quiet. All that can be heard is the steady beating of our hearts. Perfectly in tune with on

Even though I've never seen her face
She'll even be willing to have a long distance relationship
She has a sense of humour
Even if the things I say aren't funny
She has beautiful eyes
Even if they sparkle brown instead of blue
We'll have so much in common
And even if we don't, she'll still love me.
She wants to talk
On the phone, through a text, through a picture... until we're both so tired we can't talk.
I hope she's looking for me.
I know I'm searching for her.

He couldn't believe he had forgotten about her.
How? How was it even possible?
As his footsteps pounded on the cement sidewalk, as his breath came in ragged gasps, he only had one thought in his mind.
I have to see her.
Rounding the turn and entering the grounds of Gekkoukan High, he ignored the stares of all the students as he headed straight for the school, straight for the roof. He remembered the meeting place she had told him when he was in his coma. He remembered every one of her visits his consciousness had been so kind to be there for. Even if he had been unable to move his body, he was still able to have some form of alertness, and strangely, everything during that time except the visits from her were muffled, hazy, as if looking through a foggy window. The rest of the time, when his awareness did slip, his mind was filled with thoughts of her.
"We decided to make the roof our meeting place, after all of this is over," he remembered her saying quietly,

where the leaves didn't shake
and the flowers just didn't like the pressure

He looks up into the sky
and I can see Heaven crystal clear in His eyes
a lady bug crawled up His arm
and boy it felt warmer than warm
I felt the heat crawling up my cheeks
He gave a sideways look and inched a little closer to me
I tried to look the other way
and God, I tell you, I tried
He gave me a little shy smile and asked
What's on my mind
I shrugged and said
something the world said to me
made me feel a little smaller than I am
He didn't say a thing till I was done
His arms around me was warm as the sun
His voice erupted like a symphony in a concert hall
which really made me want to sway
the weight of it all
I tried to sustain and yet sanity did maintain me...
the glorious lips did part and said
"What did the world say?"
The world wants me Lord, to be the one who makes lots of money

I thought I defeated him.
Where did I go wrong? I took him out of my dream and torched the bastard, but that didn't stop him. I took back the fear he gave me and I sent him back to hell and now he's stronger. I should have known better. How can I kill someone when they are already dead.
This padded cell is driving me insane and it's only a matter of time before I sleep. That is, if I'm not already dreaming.
It's hard to tell when I'm awake or when I'm asleep. Reality is found in both realms now. I haven't seen him since the time he killed my Mother, but it's only a matter of time. I know he wants to finish the job.
I want to cry for her, but I can't. I feel so numb, but I have to hold on. I refuse to give up. Not until he's gone forever. Even if it kills me, I'll make him pay. Some thing in my gut tells me that that's what it's going to take. My life for his.

CHARACTER CREATING TIPS Part 1CHARACTER CREATING TIPS Part 110 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
CHARACTER CREATING TIPS
Part 1: Appearance
A key factor in your character's design is the appearance, it affects how they're treated, and generally thought of.
The appearance should be well thought out, and should reflect your character, and not your personal tastes.
I hear many people say, "She/He looks like this because I saw a movie with this one character that was really cool", please, don't ever do this.
You can be inspired by a character you've seen, and take elements from that design and incorporate them into your own, but don't create a character just because you thought something was "cool".
And so now, here are is a list of things to consider when creating your character's appearance. Remember, these are not rules that you have to follow, just suggestions and tips to help you create a better original character
#1: Make your character's attractiveness level, match the character.
It's a common fact that not everyone is drop-dead gorgeous, but it's also known that beauty is in t

I love the way you always act so wise
I love your body, shape and smell
Each day without you is my own hell
I love your voice, the way you talk
I love how my heart had only one lock
And you have the only key
How each day you unlock a new piece of me
I love what you do, anything you say
So much that I let you have your own way
I love your huge capacity to love
The way you treat her like a dove
I love you so much and still you don't see
How each day without you kills a piece of me
You can't possibly fathom my depth of emotion
The wholly way I give you my devotion
I love the sunshine, the snow and the rain
Days without you still bring me pain
No matter whatever the weather may be
I'll still always wish you loved me

Never again can you smile or laugh.
Those who've betrayed you with lack of remorse
bring terrible pain that does not run its course.
All hope is vanquished; all happiness lost.
Why does your life come at so great a cost...?
You feel like a failure that you have no worth...
Your have been crushed by life's gruesome girth.
...But in your grief, you've lost sight of one thing:
those truly good people and the joy that they bring.
I speak to you now, as one of those few -
my words are sincere, and my feelings are true.
Don't lose yourself. You're not finished yet.
There is still hope; your sun has not set.
The feelings you hide deep down inside...
For so many years alone you have cried.
You may not see it, but you will be shown
that some people care that you're not alone.
I've found you now. There's no need to fear.
No matter what happens, for you I am here.
