Welcome to the MasqueradeA crumbling mask won't hide your flawsWelcome to the Masquerade5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sharp words lay carved in stone
Your beating heart won't let you pause
Those broken dreams lay prone
These shattered blades won't cut so deep
They'll shed that skin so smooth
Infected wounds won't let you sleep
Black eyes aren't here to sooth
Your gentle hands are stained with paint
You hide those marks you've made
The mask you wear displays a saint
You live this pale charade
White powdered wigs will not betray
Red lips will fuel their lust
Your fragile lies are on display
Dark bonds aren't made to rust
Your shackled wrists will hold you down
Cold words invade your dreams
In crimson tears you'll learn to drown
Real souls won't hear your screams
CigarettesI hate the smell of cigarettes, but it works on her, somehow. She just seems to be someone who would smell like them, even if you've never seen her smoke, which is an experience in and of itself.Cigarettes7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Her name is Jamie, and she hates just about everything.
She smokes like she has a personal vendetta against the cigarette, like she wants it to burn into nothing as soon as it possibly can, like she wants to not just kill it, but the very idea of it.
She does everything the same way. Well, nearly everything.
She kisses gently, softly, like it's the only thing she can do, ever, and the only thing that even matters.
She tastes like what she smokes, and it's the closest I get to actually smoking anything. She knows I don't, and only offered me one, when we first met.
I do always have a lighter, though. She forgets hers, and sometimes, she just really wants to murder one.
I've tried to smoke with her, but I really just can't do it. But she does, and I think the nicotine sticks, because

I sighed and watched the councilers agrueing about the problem. The problem being that our little village often had visits from a demon. Nobody knew why the demon kept coming. We only knew that he wanted something. And he was going to get it if we didn't stop him. Whatever it was he needed we couldn't just stand by and let him have it. It might cause us troubles. So we had decided to get rid of him before that could happen. The councilers couldn't decided on how to get rid of him though. They didn't know what he was capable. So we they had no idea how to get rid of him.
I sighed again when one of the councilers said a ridiculious thing. I was not at all part of the council, but my father was and it was a tradition for the son of the council member would follow in his father's footsteps. So i had to become a council member when i was an adult. Although most of the villagers were displeased by that seeing as i was a hermaphrodite and therefore poeple s

I awoke from my dream and sat up letting my fingers trace my lips. I thought that i had just felt someone kiss me just now. Or was that my imagination? It had felt as if there had been someone familiar. My thoughts immediatly though of the demon. Was he here just now? I wonder if he was. For some reason i felt saddened by the fact that he had been here while i was sleeping. And for some reason i wanted him to come back. Why did i have that feeling? I had the feeling that i longed for him. It must be because i'm expecting his child.
I sighed tiredly and laid back down on my side. I allowed a hand to go to the small bump and rest on it. I could feel it or them move very slightly. it was starting to be able to move very slightly now. My mom had told me that it or they would start moving somewhere at the end of the fourth month. I liked feeling it move, but i wanted to get rid of it as soon as it was born. I was to young to become a mother. Not to mentio

"Hey Sonic, I'm back from the store." Shadow said as he started putting the groceries away.
"Oh good... So did you get everything we need for the baby?" Sonic asked as he finished cleaning the last dish.
" How are you feeling by the way?"
"I'm good actually, can't wait for the baby gets here. I'm dying to know if it's a boy or a girl."
"Yeah I can't wait either."
Sonic was about to drink some of his tea when suddenly he felt a shot of pain in his stomach. Almost like someone just punched him in the gut really hard. Clutching his stomach, he fell to his knees. Shadow looked behind him and saw that Sonic was on the floor crying.
"Sonic.... Sonic what's wrong?" Shadow shouted in a worried tone
"I-I'm not sure... C-call Eggman... Hurry." Sonic said still clutching his stomach.

Amy skipped around in her room, fixing it up quickly. It was her birthday tonight, and she had to find everyone to invite them. She ran around the house fixing anything she missed. Then, went and got dressed. She didn't bother doing anything real nice until she had already invited everyone. As soon as she was dressed she grabbed a stack of invitations and ran out the door.
She went through everyone she wanted to invite in her head. First was, of course, Sonic! She went to the milkshake store and found him and Tails enjoying one each.
Amy ran up and threw her arms around him.
Sonic gasped and looked behind him, then groaned.

Amy let him out of her death grip and held out an envelope.

Sonic looked at it. He didn't really want to go, but it was her birthday.

I looked away from his resting body. I've been staring at him and studying all his features since I put him in bed. He had a beautiful figure though obviously he was fragile, especially in a state such as this.
I sighed and crossed my arms. The only reason why I went to that auction was to keep my not-much-older brothers from bugging me about going before I ended up shooting one of them. And the only reason I wasn't living on any of the lower floors of the palace (which my many other siblings such as Arcturus occupied) was because I wanted to escape from all of my adult brothers and sisters. And all of their craziness and cravings for money, power, and pleasure. I, and like about 25 other siblings, were the only

Sonic was running down the streets to pass the time. There had been tons of news going around about the people disappearing all of a sudden over the past two months. Even though he knew about it, he still wanted to have a relaxing run before he turned in for the night. The cool wind whipped through his fur as he continued on, speeding up. Once he was satisfied, he slowed down to a brisk jog and then he stopped running altogether. He turned a corner and started for home when he heard the sound of shattering glass and loud annoying alarms sounded from within the city museum.
Sonic's ears perked up immediately at the sound and he turned swiftly to face the building to have two figures jump from a glass window and land almost exactly in front of him. His mouth was agape as he stared at the two figures dressed in complete black. These two, two hedgehogs exactly, were openly stealing from the museum and not even caring about all the mess they had caused. The

He blinked a few times and tried to stand, only to fall back on his belly. The boy grumbled something under his breath, tried again, and was able to stand after a few wobbly steps. He yawned, stretched, and walked to the entrance of the cave and squinted at the bright morning light.WOWC - SV Chapter 33 years ago in Drama More Like This

Sometime passed and me and sonic were listening to maria boasting about how happy she was that i finally got a boyfriend. Sonic and me looked at eachother sometime's as she kept happily boasting about it. She walked into the kitchen to get herself something to drink to get a small break from her boasting. We took that as an escape opportunity and ran for it. I walked into my bedroom and sat down on my bed. Sonic sat down next to me. "she talks alot." he said with a smile and i nodded.

They all stepped over to the pedestal and Shadow blew the thick layer of dust off the huge book, making his brothers cough like mad.

After their coughing fit, the triplets all sighed happily at the thought, "Good times good times."
"I remember her starting 2 hours ahead of time just to make sure that we all had fallen asleep since it was so many of us," Shadow smiled.
"Yeah, all those urban legends and tall tales about knights in shining armor," Red then answered.

"If they come here, we must vanish without a trace. I will not go back to that place and allow them to take our baby," Sonic growled. He then changes the topic for a brief moment.

The days passed by slower then they did last year. Must be because shadow doesn't go to the same school as me anymore. Or maybe it was because i had so much work and barely had any free time. I couldn't spent alot of time with shadow that way. We only got a little bit of time in the morning and evening. Shadow didn't seem though, but i did. Especially now that he was pregnant of me. I didn't like to leave him alone now. I was always wondering what he was doing at the moment and if he got sick or not. I know that shadow can get very weak when he's sick. If he would get sick, then i'm affraid that it could mean bad news for the baby. And i don't think shadow would ever get over the fact that he lost his first child. And since he wasn't even 3 months far yet the chance of losing it is even bigger. I hope he wasn't forcing himself to do stuff at my house that he couldn't handle at the moment.

Shadow asked, but then said 'oh' as he watched me pour one of the blood bags empty in the plate. "enjoy, honey." I said and kissed his forehead and walked into the livingroom to brood about that female vampire. "wow, it's been since my last meal with my father that i have held a spoon." I heard shadow say in the kitchen. I sensed a nostalgic sad tone in his voice. Seems like time can't heal all wounds.
