The tap of a boot, the swish of a cloak,
the glimpse of a shadow, assassin's revoke,
these are the traits of a murderer's incidence,
but his being here is no coincidence.
He slithers and sneaks like a snake-in-the-grass,
he comes out from hiding, but only to pass
swiftly over the guard that watches below
they never look up, so how could they know
an intruder had just gotten past their defense
and that their dark hour shall come to commence.
Scaling the wall like a spider on thread,
The assassin thinks, "They'll all soon be dead.
All it will take for me to win this fight,
is one small blade and a scream in the night.

When people look at me
What do they think
"That girl is so crazy and wierd"
"She's so ugly. She'll never get a boyfriend"
"I don't like her. She's so annoying"
"She thinks she's so cool and smart"
"No one likes her. She's mean"
I don't think they know that I know that.
And telling me
Or saying it behind my back
Won't change me
I may be wierd
But that makes me unique
And I'm proud of it
Oh, what am I kidding
Do you realize
I may think I'm smart
But you're stupid
I may be crazy and wierd
But it makes you boring
I may be annoying
But you're worse than me

In The StormIn The Storm2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Back and forth
Talking to me
Trying to turn me against the other
I'm in the middle
Being referred to
I am expected to answer
I'm caught in the storm
I'm being pelted by both sides
Does it matter
Which side I choose?
But I want to
I want to turn against the obvious villain
I want to scream at him
Tell him he's a manipulative, sexist beast
I want to choose her side.
But choosing would only let it sink in
That it's going to happen
That it is happening
That I can't stop it
But I can keep in on hold
By staying indifferent

A Transformer's ChristmasTwas the night before Christmas and all throughout CybertronA Transformer's Christmas5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Nothing was running or humming, not even hungry Sharkicons
Each little Autobot and Decepticon buffed all their nicks
Oiled their hinges and shut off their optics
Everyone had stopped the fighting to recharge for the next day
In hopes they will feel great for the next vicious, barbaric fray
Even the leader of the factions, both Megatron and Prime
Thought they needed the rest and went off-line
It was a cold, cold night on that robotic planet in space
And nobody was moving any bouts of the place
Except for one robot, a very excited guy
Who worked hard all year, this is
The Ring of Blood and FateThe Ring of Blood and Fate1 year ago in Settings More Like This
Awwww. That happened to me, too. Except without the Lady in Black part. I'm to wimpy to go to those things. All it takes are a few trailers, and I'm already fearing the dark again. As, perhaps, it should be. I *DO* believe in some large amount of superstitious things, because some of them aren't that fake. I've dealt with some...things. And this one story I heard from my closest friend: there had been a bunch of missing persons (i dunno where), so authorities went out looking for people. They found this giant metal ring, with mutilated, nearly unrecognizable bodies all over it. On the inside, there was a giant pool of blood, from victims not

She didnt like the rain, it gave her terrible hair and she couldnt pull off interesting-and-original-without-trying with bad hair, of course. The other girl looked at her. She was puzzled, unsure as usual as to what was really going on. She was a hard one to fathom, The promiscuous illusionist. It was almost as if she knew something none of the others did. Something.

Quite often, my husband thrusts a book into my hands saying "Stop reading your fantasy rubbish and read something real."
This little gem is a quick-to-read collection of some "slice-of-life" tales set in the author's native Japan. Although translated from Japanese into English, they read well and are, in my mind, reminiscent of some of the Kafka that I ploughed through when I was younger.
Murakami's protagonists appear mostly as individuals who exist within modern society and yet seem somehow apart from the general flow of things, acting as almos
Heaven or HellHeaven or Hell2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
There was a poll posted on Facebook, it was simple, all you had to do was click one answer or the other.
You only had two choices.
The question was: "Where do you think you're headed?"
The answer choices were: Heaven, and Hell.
A lot of people picked Heaven and there were people who voted Hell.
This made me sad to know that these people are condemning themselves.
When you say you're going to Hell, you're accepting something that isn't true!
If God set a Satanist free, If God sent his only son to die for us (even when we did not and still don't deserve it), and If God spoke into the darkness and created the light...

Silvie closed the stall door behind her; she closed it timidly, with an empty expression on her face. Her hand shook. She paused for a moment, her mouth half open, her lip curled upward, and a frown on her forehead.
