the smell of citrus you bring, and your shirt on my floor.
sometimes i think about the spaces between your fingers and
the lines in your lips-
the way you laugh tickles my heart because then
your eyes sparkle like crystals in the sun.
sometimes you remind me of cherry blossom carpets and
the fresh rainforest smell.
you are more than what i deserve.
that pink stain you left on my pillow, those
harp-string lullabies you sang into my eyes-
they are reminders of how much you meant to me.
sometimes i wish for the melancholy of your eyes,
when i dream of past summers. my memories play on repeat:
thoughts of you, thoughts of you, thoughts of you.
time had stopped, right at the moment your eyes met mine,
and on the occasions i'm not crying into tea cups,
the world is the memory of your eyes and they way they smiled,
even when i didn't, like the last ray of light before the sun sets.
but your gaze will never fail to remind me
that i will always be a
Naturenature brings me peaceNature4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
sitting in the rain washes away my pain
standing in the forest amazes me
staring at the stars makes me wonder
i can let out all my sadness in the rain
it washes away the tears that i cry
it cools me down when i'm angry
and it makes me want to sing
the forest entrances me all the time
the endless amount of enormous trees
the quiet stillness of calm animals and wind
and the beautifulness of all the different plants
the stars make me think about so much
i wonder about how small we really are
i wonder if there are other planets with life
and i wonder what happen after we die
nature helps me feel happy
even when i am depressed
i will love nature forever
it knows me best
You Renew MeYou Renew Me4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Burdened with sorrow
I hoped for tomorrow
Man nor Woman could be trusted
I can't believe I lusted
Show me love
So I can trust
I admit my faults
Please don't let me fall
I cry out!
and you hear me
I pray now!
and you bless me
I lay it down
and you free me
I die now
and you renew me
I dwelt in the past
I tried to make it last
The future's now
No longer bound
You showed past's destruction
My future's Liberation
I found you
I'll praise you!
Renew me! Jesus.
You have set me free!
No longer depression's slave
I know you'll show me the way
In Jesus' name, Amen.

Part I - The Big Four: Exploring Plot Types
Before we start, it will be prudent to know what kind of plot you seek for your project. There are four main types that we will explore here:
- The character-driven plot.
- The event- or situation-driven plot.
- The world-driven plot.
- The concept- or theme-driven plot.
The character-driven plot is employed in stories that are propelled forward by the learning, changing character or characters. Harry Potter is an example of character-driven plot. I have one friend who is absolutely certain that this is the future of literature, because of the way we view and understand the human psyche.
The event-driven plot takes as its focus the events or chains of events that affect characters and the world in which the story is set. Choose-your-own adventure books are event-driven. Another example is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, in which the absurd situations that arise out of the setting are the main focus of the novel and the charact

Dumping the paper down on the curb next to him he got to his feet. "If the crazies with shotguns or the blasted zombies don't get us all, this waiting will! I say lets go out with a little style! What d'ya think, Mertle? Shotgun or chainsaw?"
Unfortunately for Richard, the voice he heard answer him was nothing beyond his own mind because Mertle was in fact, an old microwave sitting on the street, with a smile drawn on her glass face in bright red lipstick.

"He's in his room, he wasn't well. Serbia and Egypt are checking on him now" She spoke calmly.
The Turk growled in frustration. "What the fuck is wrong with him now?"
Bulgaira looked up, Romania was fast asleep in his lap. "He was throwing up all last night, he wouldn't eat for the last two days and he hasn't slept well at all"
Turkeys eyes widened behind his mask. He knew something was horriblely wrong if the Greek wasn't sleeping.
Egypt arrived down with Serbia a while later. Albania ran over to her sister and held up her arms.
"What's wrong wiv Gweece-chan, Serby?" the girl asked once she was safely in the older nations arms. Serbia sighed, running her fingers through Albania's black hair.

Holding around the tender area of his head, Heracles tried his best to not make a deal out if it. The tears ran and he silently cried but couldn't help to let out a few whimpers. "Damn it I-I'm not gonna give into th-this " he said pulling his shaking body up with the help of the couch. "Man the lights are all out?" Sadik said trying to click on the lamp. It didn't really matter to him though, it was all grey anyway. He managed to light a candle and set it down near his bed. As he did he noticed a wobbling figure in his doorway.
"Heracles, that you ?"He asked from his bed. Heracles let out another whimper and advanced towards the man's bed. " didn't know y-you were home " He mumbled climbing onto his bed not even looking at Sadik. "Yeah, I am. You were just come and sit in here even if I wasn't?" Sadik replied looking at him.

Not many know of it in the manner I do, for she
only comes out at night in fear of retribution.
Shes quite shy at times, but can you blame her in this world?
Oh but when she does come out from that black blanket of stars,
her beauty is intense. Much like that of the amaranth.
I am quite fond of spending hours just staring in awe as she dances among the stars.
Some people think I am crazy for spending so much time with
something I can never reach. But It is here in the snowy desolate woods
that I feel least alone. For underneath this amazing light show, I feel no pain,
no fear, no sorrow. Just an overwhelming feeling of warmth, inspiration, and love.
The kind of love that will never leave my side. Not for long at least. I can always
count on her to appear again at night. Sure, sometimes shes gone for awhile. She
always returns to me though.
In a way, shes a lot like Quan Yin. Her many arms embracing me, and keeping me

It was too damned early for the phone to ring. He knew it, and he knew the person on the other end fucking knew it as well. Still. If some fucker was going to call him at 5:04 in the goddamn morning...
He groped for the phone and mashed the button angrily, jamming the phone to his ear fitfully.
"What?" he growled into the receiver.
"Sadiq." A low voice greeted him calmly, clearly unperturbed by the gruff tone and early hour.
Sadiq Adnan sat up slowly, blinking away the last vestiges of sleep from his brain.
"...Gupta? This is a hell of a time to be making a call."
"I am afraid this is not a leisurely call, as you might have guessed." Egypt replied, his voice unhurried and even.
Turkey frowned as his fingers traced over the scars from losing Medina and Mecca, one over each lung.

Eliza, or, as most of the people knew her, Erzsébet or Böske, got out of her bed slowly and quite drowsy, after a harsh and loud voice told her quite straightforwardly that breakfast is ready and that he won't take the blame for them if they're late from school.
It was the end of May, and incredibly hot in their flat in Budapest; even at 7 AM. Not to mention that her room was facing south so she had to live through every summer with the shades pulled down and the ventilating fan turned on non-stop. But this was not a big price to pay for having a balcony.
She would've been happier about that balcony if she didn't have to share it with an idiot, nevertheless.
She put on a pair of shorts and opened her room's door, still a bit drowsy. Their kitchen was just across her room and her grandfather was already sitting by the table with a big pipe in his mouth and reading the newspaper. The wonderful smell of coffee filled the little flat, and Eliza let out
Heaven or HellHeaven or Hell4 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...
Then NOTHING is impossible for him!
The word impossible is a fallacy that hides the truth: I'm Possible!
Don't condemn yourself.
Doesn't matter what you did, God will still forgive you and let you into his kingdom,
you just have to stop putting yourself down all the time
If God forgave Hitler, Sodom, and Osama, yet they blew it, due to them choosing not to accept him and
In Defense of DmCIn Defense of DmC4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I'm gonna level with you: upon first seeing the DmC trailer, I was appalled. I was outraged, I was pissed, I experienced a new level of fanboy rage previously unbeknownst to me. How dare they mess with Devil May Cry! How dare they! Who was that ugly dumbass? It wasn't Dante! Not him! Nope! No way! This is awful! I am affronted! And I stayed that way for maybe two days, seething about black hair dye and cigarettes, tossing and turning and crying on the inside. If I could go back in time, I would appear to myself in a haze of golden light, and with a gentle and loving gesture, whisper, "Calm yo' tits, my child." Because after the initial shock wore off, I felt a little ashamed of my gut reaction. Not that I should've been: after four games of Sir Dante Sexypants and His Magical Adventures, going from silver hair/red coat/badassery to bad dyejob/dirty clothes/asshattery is a big shock.
