Love isn't true
Tell me what love is
Because love isn't you
I gave up on love
Because love gave up on me
Love isn't beautiful
Like everyone sees
It will break your heart
It will make you sad
It will kill you inside
With everything you have
Love isn't great
Love is what I hate
Love will deceive you
Love will leave you
Love isn't this
Because love is a myth

So there's this thing I do from time to time when I'm not exactly engaged into whatever's going on around me.
What's going on around me? Well, you know. I'm a fifteen year old, average, everyday black kid living in the 30th—31st in a few months—century. It's a weekday. It's a Thursday. Thursday, October 12th, 3000. Given that, it's pretty easy to imagine what's going on around me.
I'm in school. I'm in class. I'm sitting at my desk right now, staring at this personalized, holographic projection of a computer screen in front of me. This is a programming class, and I'm teaching myself how to code.
Yeah, that's right. I'm teaching myself – or at least, trying to. The reason is because good ol' Mr. Bloomberg over there is done for the day. He's sitting in his chair, staring at the holographic computer screen in front of him feeling fulfilled in his contribution to the student learning process.
Don't get me wrong. He's a great guy, but honestly, a robot could do his

We are broken promises and shattered glass.
In your traitorous arms,
I wish I'd never closed my eyes,
You are like all good headaches
in that, you will fade away,
In painkillers and flowers on a grave.

It seems like so long ago when I could say that name without choking. He was someone I loved. But now... I'm done with playing little love games.
Or at least that's what I try to tell myself.
Our relationship started like out of a storybook... riding off into the sunrise, on a snow mobile's back. He said he'd take a new direction in life - that up to that point, he had only lived for himself. Although I assured him that that's everyone... he said that maybe he should live for someone else.
Someone like me.
At the time, hearing those words made me giggle like a school girl. It had been exactly what I wanted to hear... because I fell in love.
He had taken me back to his place, and needless to say, we had finally got our love scene, and it was truly an amazing experience. The first few months were equally as amazing. I was acquainted with his dogs, and seeing him with them warmed my heart. Time was spent exploring the area, camping, even going to town. Dave showed me a lot of beauti

They never did.
I never had the heart to say,
but the truth none the less,
becomes clear in time.
I can only smile and nod
to try to hold back the tears.
I never lied.
but I didn't tell the truth either.
Your smile comforts me.
I like the lies,
they hide the truth.
But words alone can not save me.
I will have no parachute, when I fall.

"Oh, this is just great," groaned an exasperated Rodney, voice dripping with his usual brand of sarcasm. "We were here for what? Two seconds?"
"I believe it has been considerably longer than that, Rodney," said Teyla absently, a tense edge to her voice that had nothing to do with the scientist's complaining. She was sitting in the co-pilot's seat of the jumper, leaning forward in the chair, eyes fixed on the scene unfolding beyond the windshield's glass.
"Yeah, Teyla's right," said John. "It's been more like eight."
Rodney just shot him a withering stare.
"They're not going to be able to get inside, are they?" asked Elizabeth from one of the cockpit's secondary seats, sounding mildly concerned.
John briefly turned his head to glance at her. "No, we're sealed up tight as a drum in here."
Everyone in the jumper except Ronon suddenly jumped as a loud thud reverberated through the small space; slimy chunks of the bright orange watermelon-size
wild hearts.I hope you realize that if man is created in the image of God, then the world is created in the image of you.

As you're sitting there with your Marlboro-lips pursed and the world dangling from your fingers, I hope you know that you're the kind of man that doesn't let go. No, you're the kind that tangles in every fiber of every thought, the kind of man that lurks around every corner, your face superimposed on the surface of the sun. I hope you know that when I'm running down Main Street, I can taste you in the heat. I hope you're aware that the rays of light feel like a milder version of you.
And I hope you hear me when I cry out, that when I stand before you with open palms you heed my call to action. There is poetry written along your cheekbones and songs

No Road Back Home, part 2Jordan Fenix.No Road Back Home, part 25 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The name hit a nerve.
How could Norn Hannah Kappel not recognize one of her children, one of the girls she helped bring into the world? Now she could see it clearly. Jordan's features: her emerald eyes and pale skin. They were those of her mother, just finer due to her elven blood. Whereas her mother had been possessed of long, red hair, Jordan had shorter black hair. Nevertheless, she was her mother's daughter; she had the same soft smile. Her ears were pointed and her eyes deep and full of purpose just like her father. She was the same height as her mother, just a bit taller than Hannah herself, but she was athletic and fit for combat.
The Norn lowered her face and took the girl's hands on her own. "Child, forgive them! I am sorry my dear child, I didn't know."
Jordan looked a bit embarrassed. "It's fine Norn. I understand the people in the region have suffered. I can't really blame them."
"And yet you do, don't you?" Hannah's voice was but a whisper, her eyes still dow

In the Dark Area, Beelzemon had just returned and flopped into his room when a certain other Demon Lord sauntered in to see him.
"Hello, Beelzemon," Lillithmon said in a seductive voice. "How was the outside?"
"Get lost, Lillithmon," he snapped. "I really don't like you, and I never have."
"Don't be like that " she said, walking over to him.
Beelzemon's eyes flashed in anger as he lifted his Berenjena shotgun at her. "If you don't leave, we're gonna have to have a membership drive."
"Why's that?" she asked 'innocently'.
"You'll be dead."
Lillithmon gulped out of fear and backed away.
"Go play with Daemon or Barbamon, Lillithmon. Just leave me alone!"
"Fine," she said stiffly. Lillithmon walked out of his room, and Beelzemon locked the door after her. "Man, she's a real jerk. Not kind and not nearly as beautiful as Kuzuhamon," he said quietly. Kuzuha's funny and smart though a little naïve she's beautiful and elegan

Hauptmann Karessa double-checked the guard routes one more time before heading to her office at the aisle. The guards had been doubled for the night after Bishop Maxfel Hedrin announced his visit. She felt anxious about the notorious bishop's sudden appearance. After all this could be her opportunity to impress the top brass of Asmodeus church. Yet this sudden visit worried her. It was not unheard of for the notorious inquisitor to audit the temples' authorities, which included her, but his visit coincided with some disturbing rumors.
Two days before the Bishop's arrival a couple of Karessa's men overheard a woman asking questions about the temple. Her questions and the proximity to the bishop's visit were too close to the mark to be a coincidence. Unfortunately when she sent her men back for the woman she was nowhere to be found.
She had them chastised, of course, but she herself was left with making sure nothing happened while the bishop was around. Earlier she met the man himself an

Over the intervening days, Kuzuhamon got quickly integrated to life at Light Castle. Nefertimon had brought back a human boy who'd been turned into data named Noah, and set him up in the castle, too. Kuzuha had been wary of the child at first he was the one who created Lucemon, though, admittedly for friendship, not world domination. She's warmed up to him when she saw how he interacted with his new 'partner', Labramon. Kuzuhamon loved the castle, too. It was always beautiful, no matter the time. Night was her favorite time of day at the castle though, for it was then that Beelzemon came to be with her. They traveled to anywhere they wanted, but never the same place twice. That way it was harder for the Demon Lords to ever find them.
One night in particular brought them to Forest Terminal, where the two of them traveled the beautiful tree-lined area. After a small while, they came upon a tiny village, only seven houses, and three of them ha

But it sucked some major ass,
So here's a haiku.
Ichigo and Rukia's Sleep OverAs I laid in bed that night, I was just looking up at my ceiling counting sheep, as they say, to help me go to sleep. Soon after counting dozens of so-called sheep, I felt a relaxing feeling come over me. Soon everything fell into place, the soft cushioning feeling of my pillow under my head, and the cool breeze from the window made my eyes feel heavy. My body so at ease that I slowly drifted into mid-sleep, my eyes closed but my mind still attuned to the world around me.Ichigo and Rukia's Sleep Over7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Then I heard the sound of my closet door opening. The horrible sound of the metal scratching against metal jolted my ears as I checked to see what was happening. "Sorry." Rukia whispered to me as she climbed down. "Thanks alot, now I have to begin counting those damn sheep again." I said her in a mild voice. She climbed next to me in bed and pulled half of my covers toward her. "What the hell are you doing Rukia?!" I asked in a whispered yell. "It's so stuffy in your closet I needed

Want to be loved? Want to be accepted by all? Then take these ten easy steps to acceptance and popularity!
1. Quit bathing/showering altogether. Nobody likes somebody who doesn't smell like they just came out of the sewers after jogging for over thirty-five hours non-stop while covered in feces!
2. Only wear black. All other colors are obsolete and made for those stoopid non-wrist-slicing prpz. Regardless of gender, you should also wear hooker outfits. The more body hair that shows, the better!
3. It is blasphemy for anyone to spell anything right. u mst tlk liek dis. nao nu 1 cn undastind u bcuz u tip liek a rturd.
4. Pick a religion. Not the world-known religions, but the religions of the internet. Your choices in your god(s) are anime, anime characters, manga, manga characters, wolves, other beautiful animals, Stephanie Meyer, Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, Jacob Black, and yourself. If you want to be TRULY AWESOME, go for all of the above.
