A Happy WorldHappiness,A Happy World9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is what I want to see.
Is what I want to read.
Sadness can go away,
And fade away into yesterday.
Depression can melt into history,
And the survivors can live peacefully.
Cutters can put down their knives,
And begin to heal their wounds.
The bullied can be left alone,
And begin to forget about those bullies that paid their dues.
The lonely can stop crying,
And find comfort with new friends.
The lost can find a way,
And make it through their life.
The world I want,
The world I need,
Is it really that far away,
Or is it right in front of me?

You give me your love
And treat me like a child,
But I don't mind,
Because I am your child.
Sometimes we argue,
Sometimes we cry,
But I know that you'll never
Start to hate me.
My dearest mom,
May your life
Be filled with happiness
And filled with luck,
And stay healthy
As long as you can.
Let me return your love
That you gave me,
Let me be your good girl,
Let me wish you a happy birthday
And good luck in your life.
May all your wishes
That you keep in your heart
Come true someday,
So that you can let them
Sparkle like stars.

Turn off the light.
Say one last prayer.
Then say goodnight.
Accept your fate.
Lay down your head.
Then count to three.

He saw you sleeping.
You are a keeper.
Meet your new friend.
Your favorite Grim Reeper.
He slows your pulse.
He takes your breath.
As you relax.
And try to rest.
He takes your hand.
Death so serene.
Wake up and smile.
CribCurled up between the rumples of the blankets, the headboard, at least three long pillows along is his back, and Tara's sleeping form at his front and nestled tightly under one of his arms, Kyle allowed his mind to wander into something beyond the realm of wakefulness. He couldn't sleep just yet, though he wanted to. Repairing the Corvega's engine, and trying to figure out just what the hell that black sludge contained in one of the cylinders was if it wasn't oil, was exhausting work. Yet his mind refused to drift off into that restful, healing world of dreams. Instead, it conjured up something through synapses long forgotten, turning his consciousness over to the world that was no mystical, unbelievable fantasy, but something that was alarmingly familiar.Crib4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

have never seen
the sparkle of your eyes
the curve of your fingers;
it's as beautiful as small butterflies
these ears that claim
to have heard the sweetest music
gave your piano a listen -
you amazed my ears
you unearthed the true music
with your brazen, enchanting melody
yet these tender fingers -
could play so beautifully and it
giving meaning to gentle smiles,
and the thought of your laughter
echoing in many beautiful days to come
an echo that never returned.
my eyes, they watched,
my ears, they listened,
my fingers, they reached out -
and still I never knew
if it could be you and me.
before you I had not known
how quickly my lungs could breathe
to always be looking at a distance.
in happiness I found pain
and instead of being happy with you
I began to collect the broken shards of my heart
that had loved you, I will love you forever
a part of me will wait for you forever

I sat in my house all alone. It has been a month since I last saw Arlow. I hope he hasn't forgotten me. I went outside to get some fresh air, then went for a little stroll around the river.
He was going for a swim, when he noticed a human. "strange...humans dont usually dont come this far into the woods....shell serve very well for breakfast" as he stalked her carefully.
I turned to see the river, and saw a family of ducks swim by. Smiling at them, I gave them a piece of my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I remember when Arlow once got peanut butter stuck in his mouth.
He sniffed at the air and smelt a familar sce
Guardian Angels, Ch. 2Keeping dressed in line with the three other armored guards keeping watch over the door, Heather kept the faceplates of her helmet pointed forward at attention, but within the helmet she let her eyes wander to the stretcher where the good doctor was working with his patient. William squinted at the device in front of his nose to make sure he spiked an IV bag properly before hanging it, and addressing the brown-haired young man lying on the stretcher before him.Guardian Angels, Ch. 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Creepypasta - Loop SequenceI open my eyes. I am in a tall, blue pine forest, the trees as tall as redwoods. The hulking pines go on for miles and miles, seemingly endless. The great branches of the trees shelter the ground, making it dark and humid under their great mass. Any other person would think that this forest was beautiful, they would think it was a good dream. But no, not me. This is a forest I know all too well.Creepypasta - Loop Sequence3 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
"No.." I murmur. "No no no no no... not again, not this again..." I start running through the forest frantically, praying that I can finally find the end of this forest and get away from them...
"Run all you want, you cannot escape..." One of them cackles, and I hear fast, thumping footsteps coming after me, long claws scratching on the ground as they run.
"You will never escape us... you can't hide from your punishment..." Another taunts, their voice like cracking bones. Another set of footsteps joins the first, even more heavy than the last.

a pleasant surprise across the room,
her glance comes my way,
my heart skips a beat.
I stand, frozen in the moment.
Here I come,
the opportunity presents itself, I take it
with a confident stride, I walk,
a greeting, an introduction, a compliment.
"Meet me tomorrow," I offer,
she nods and smiles, innocent and unsure.
Off I go,
pleased with the occasion, dreaming of tomorrow,
my heart flutters at the thought of romance,
and then I wake,
and then she's gone.
Hacked OffThe door slammed shut behind them, and although they could hear the pounding of the heavy feet from their Super Mutant pursuers, Kyle and Liam wasted no time in barricading the door as quickly as they could with whatever furniture they could find in the small office room. At almost the same instant that they'd lined up a couch on the bottom part of the door, the entire frame shuddered as one of the Mutants threw his weight onto it. Thankfully it held, but though reinforced by metal plating installed before the war, it wouldn't be long until a mighty swing from a Mutant with a sledgehammer broke through it.Hacked Off2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Satisfied that they'd bought themselves a few more minutes, the two of them sprinted across the room, past the security consoles and the thick layer of dust covering the keyboards, and towards another door on the far end of the room. Once they'd reached it, Liam slammed his hand down on the locking mechanism right next to its frame. Nothing

They may not last another day.
Although I love them so,
They want to leave me behind...
You put the gun to your head
Or the knife to your throat.
I want you to know...
I would write in all languages in the world,
if I could do it in time.
Just to show my love.
To have them return.
You put the gun to your head
Or the knife to your throat.
But I want you to know...
You mean everything to me don't ever leave.
Come back to me.

Even as my beauty fades,
because of age, my life won't stop
Even as my skin is stretched,
Like elast-ic, my life won't stop
Even when my heart is slowed,
Because I'm old, my life's begot
Even though I'm dead and gone,
I'm where I belong, life's just begun.
Bus ride.I ride the bus home almost every day. A few months ago I was riding the fifteen like i usually do. A couple came onto the bus and sat accross from me. I continued to read my book so i wouldnt have to aknowledge them, when i noticed out of the corner of my eye. The rather attractive woman, dressed in raggedy, somewhat dirty clothes, brought a shaking hand up to her eye. I glanced up for a moment only to see her face, twisted painfully as tears streamed relentlessly and uncontrollably down her cheeks as she blinked in a struggle to keep them back. The man sat stiffly next to her, staring in front of himself distantly. there was a buildup of tears in his eyes as well, threatening to spill over. His lip trembled slightly as he bit it in an attempt to keep controll over it.Bus ride.6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This

See that's what they call it.
But they teach us to do, not to think.
A genius doesn't answer every question perfectly,
A genius questions every answer given.
A system that judges success by the amount of bills you have,
Makes you work to the bone,
Cuts your soul in halves,
Make us seem like a bunch of clones?
Are we nothing more than machines?
Fill in the right answer, nothing more is accepted.
Thrown away if you can't follow instructions,
Is this in efforts in increase production?
Shall we drive the passion away from everything?
When everyone tries only to survive,
Shall we exist solely to die?
A system that completely determines your life.
Wasn't this system meant for us to thrive?
