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

You might follow, I'll go first
Rays of moon reunite within your embrace
Please let me sleep,
I'm dreaming of your face
I don't know the stinging warmth
of your frozen hands
Wanting and needing, generosity of demands
Pain hides minions behind your angelic eyes
Commanding twilight torments
and hordes of morning cries
Touch my hand, I'll touch your soul
Together in love and out of control
Blessed by a heart, or so it seems
Please don't wake me up,
at least I'll have my dreams.

Mairitti felt the wind brushing through her hair as she made her way towards the capital.
"..." Stopping the horse, she went over the letter she had gotten from the thief-guild-master. As it seemed, the duke of Lahur had infiltrated the court around the Empress of Neara... and only if they found out who gave information to the duke, greater disasters could be prevented.
Sighing, she placed the letter in her pocket again, riding towards the capital of Sorgund. This was her final test...
Through the crowded streets it was easy disappearing within the crowds but towards the mansion of Lahur's duke, it got harder... Hiding from the guards, Mairitti had to sneak through the streets like a shadow, approaching her goal...

Identity?Identity?6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
A complex topic, is it what others see? Is it what you see? Is it what you feel? Is it who you are inside, or the persona that you carefully create? Is it what makes you you? Your individuality, your personality, your wants and dreams? Or is it a creation of your past and experiences?
When others see me they see the body, a relatively thin tall frame with dyed red hair. But that is not who I am, who I am they cannot see, many cannot even comprehend. For you see I am not I, I am we, for we are multiple. We share this single body, but we are not one, we each have our own thoughts, own feelings, even own memories. We have each been created and shaped by our past, but each into a different form.
We share a body as many would share a home, we argue as friends argue, and we exist within this world.
So do we have an identity? Do we have one each, or do we share one as we share the body? Identity is used throughout social science to describe an individual's comprehension
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.Cigarettes8 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 don't think we should tresspass here." I said. "i know that, but those jerks said that it was in here." Shadow said and tried to find a way through the metal fence that surrounded the building. It was a very old, abandoned building. It looked like some sort of mansion, it was called that even though it was big and old enough to be a castle. A metal fence was placed around it because there was a possibility that it could collapse. Shadow walked away from me and walked to a small opening in the fence. It wasn't big enough for any of us to go through much to my relief. It wasn't that i was a scaredy cat. It was just that did building had a very bad history, was about to collapse and had a reputation of being haunted. Not that it was haunted for real. They just said that it was because the lights have been turning on and someone has been seen in it. But it wasn't because it was haunted. It was because someone, a suposed madman, lived in it, but poep

And some others who had a crush on her were pretty pissed aswell. And some aren't the sweetest guys around. He better be carefull. They didn't dare to go against knuckles, for the obviouse of course, but someone as thin as the new kid? I doubt that he'd stand a chance. I walkd out of the gym together with knuckles. Knuckles was looking around to search for rouge. But she was obviously gone with shadow.

What do you do with a llama?What do you do with a llama? Allow me to let you in on a little secret. Llamas are the most useful creatures in existence. You don't believe me? Well then, I shall prove it to you.What do you do with a llama?6 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Let me start with the basics. Llamas have been used to caddy golf clubs, act as guard animals for sheep, carry down ore from mountain mines, and drive carts for transportation. They can be used for entertainment when breeders bring their llamas to compete in shows and races, their meat can be used to make burgers and steaks (and it apparently tastes like a mixture of beef and lamb with a tinge of extra sweetness), and they can be even used for companionship due to their gentle and good-natured souls. Still not convinced? Their thick outer coat of fur can be used to make rugs and ropes, while their fine undercoats can be turned into garments and handicrafts. Oh, and guess what? Llamas can be ev

Amy walked slowly in the direction Rouge had pointed her. She came to an intersection and stopped for a second, looking around. With a glance behind her, she saw she was almost a mile out of town. The street she had walked on was bare and torn up. There was no underbrush or grass. All that surrounded the street was dirt and dead plants. She turned and looked in front of her and saw woods. Or if you would call bare trees a wood and more dirt. The road turned into a gravel road that led into the woods. Amy thought to herself.
'Do I really want to risk my life out here in the middle of nowhere to find someone who doesn't even like me and invite him to my birthday party?.....I suppose I am .'
She walked in the woods for a long while, a little over an hour really. With the little daylight left the woods had become quite a scary place for the little pink hedgehog. An owl flew overhead, nearly making the poor girl faint. She became tired of walking the same twisting path and choo

The next morning we woke up to the crying of the babies. I helped shadow sit up and feed the babies. During the day he was still to exhausted to get up from the bed. So i spend alot of time with our babies in our bedroom. We did that for a few days till shadow was well enough to get out of bed.

What was that all about? I tried to find him for answer and instead i got more question. And......did he really call me handsome? I wonder why, but it somehow felt like i was used to it. "you're not bad yourself, beautifull." I heard a voice say in my head. And an image of shadow smilling passed in my head. The voice sounded like my own again. And there was something strange about that image from shadow i got. He was stroking a belly that was pretty round. Was he....pregnant? I had decided not to think about it anymore.
I wanted to walk home till i saw something laying on the ground. Maybe it belonged to shadow. I walked up to it and picked it up. It looked like a small very old usb-stick. It couldn't be of much imprtance now since it wouldn't work on any computers now. I walked in the same direction shadow had walked to and hoepd i would find him soon.

Till night approached. Then this agonizing pain would overcome my whole body and i would feel my bones breaking and snapping out of place and back in place once the transformation was finished and my fur had gotten darker and eyes more menacing and darker aswell. Not to mention that my form went from a normal hedgehog to a big bulky beast. I panted after the transformation and curled up a little to recover a little.
Once i had recovered i got up on all fours and walked out of the alley i had went in before i had transformed. I looked up and saw the full moon. I howled to it and walked towards the woods not knowing that i had caught someone's attention.
Arriving upon the forest i was a bit comforted by the familiar enviremont. I smiled and walked through the natural envire

I sighed when i got up and walked towards the gym. I didn't p.e. not that i was lazy or didn't like the exersices. I liked those very much. But it meant changing into my gym attire with everybody there and it meant being paired up with somebody at times. I didn't like either of those.
I walked into the gym and went into the dressing room. I recognized the blue hedgehog from before. Sonic, his name was i think. He didn't seem to be happy to see me when i walked in the dressingroom. Must be because i look like a rich bastard. Can't blame him. The professor wanted me to wear these.
I waited for everyone to leave before wanting to change into my gym outfit. But my teacher walked in and said that i didn't have to participate in it. That must've been one of the classes the professor said that i couldn't participate in. Couldn't agree more, with how i looked like.

"i can imagine that." I replied and took one of his hands into my own. It was cold, but not so cold that you could assume that it had died because of the blade. It still had a bit of warmth left in it. So i knew that his arm was still able to recover. If i got him quick enough to the hospital that is.
I groaned as i felt the pain in my chest return. I wonder if i had broken a few ribs. I laid a hand on the place where it hurt. Shadow got off the bed and looked around a bit. Now that i was awake i could look around in the room a bit. I was very simple. There was a bed and a small table. Shadow looked at the wall and walked to it.

I assumed that he was making breakfast for himself, thinking that i already had some, and cut himself accidently. "are you okay?" I asked making him jump. "yeah, i'm fine." He said and winced. "let me see." I asked and gently held his hand in my own. It looked like a deep cut. "this needs stitches." I said and opened a cabinet. I grabbed the first aid kit to treat his cut. I knew quite a bit about medical treatment. From stitching wounds, to burnt wound, to broken bones. So i knew how to take care of sonic's wound. He winced throughout the whole treatment, but i made it as less painfull as possible.
After the stitching i disinfected it and bandaged his hand. "are you okay now?" I asked in concern. I looked at his hand, which i was still holding in my own. "yeah, i'm fine." He said and grinned. He groan
