That's the only word that kept echoing in your tormented mind.
Ever since the Allies turned against you, your whole world had been chaos. It was practically World War 3, for heaven's sake! The economy went downhill, your country's prime minister was shot about a month ago and half of your population was gone. And when we say gone, it either means that they fled to another country with the help of fake passports or that they were simply dead.
Genocide was happening pretty much everywhere. And no matter what you did, you couldn't stop it. Already 65% of your population didn't exist anymore and the numbers only increased with each passing week.
You weren't the only country who had to go through this suffering, though. Other weaker countries like Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine had been taken down. Latvia was close behind, but Estonia was surprisingly still standing.
Stronger countries like Russia, Sweden and Germany were currently trying to fight off t

The chill air whipped at my bare legs as i ran from the shadow chasing me. the dead forest leaves crunched under my bare, frostbitten bare feet giving away my location. Hiding was not an option because the shadow would just find me by following the aroma of my blood and the fear in it was driving him insane. Before all this he pulled up to me in a white mini Van and told me that he can change my life completely if i stepped closer. He promised me a better world where no one can tell me what to do or what to be.
" just something i need back," he said in his rough voice.
" What was that?" i had asked, thinking it was something horrible like being raped or murdered.
" Your services. You see, i have this organization and i think you'll be perfect for it."
" What is it that you do exactly?"

Without daring to say a word.
There are fragile words
Which form outlines
Of a vulnerable life.
In the autumn colors
Disturbed by the noise
Of the rain on windows.
At the end of the day, the somber
Reality becomes a burden.
This woman is invaded by anxiety
Her tired spirit, on the alarming
Silence of the language, is slowly
Dying on this kiss of the other one.
He, who believes with his smile
To understand everything
by watching at her crying.
He, with his stupid words, he hammers
The commonness with his unsightly facies,
His absent glance in front of her who doubts
In the gust of feelings.
Quiet, he falls asleep,
she stares at him
Silently with sadness,

A Light In The Fog
The long nights were dark and the short days seemed darker
The sun tries to rise but even the moon's glow is brighter
I'm just searching for something to give me a sense of hope
Even though I'm another typical fool who should just learn to let go
Eyes grow dim as time goes on
It's a sin to be this strong
I'm going through life and only seeing blurry faces
It's too harsh when all forms of trust are blind
I've walked this world and noticed nothing really changes
Every step seems futile and every dream is a sleeping lie
All souls cannot be shrouded
All hope cannot be abandoned
I needed a reason / To keep me breathing
So please pay heed to the pleas / I don't want the dim lights to leave
And then I caught a glance of you and instantly knew
That I gave up too easily, thinking you wouldn'

My love! For too long I have kept my feelings secret. It's time I told you how I really feel, because:
[ ] It's making me crazy.
[ ] It's making my spouse crazy.
[ ] My therapist won't shut up about it.
[ ] The cops will be here any moment and there's no time.
Quite honestly, I'm a little obsessed. How can I make you understand? Let me try:
[ ] I tattooed your name on my body.
[ ] I tattooed your name on my spouse's body.
[ ] I changed all my pet's names to honor you.
[ ] Even the voices in my head are a little afraid of me now.
Whenever I think of you, I:
[ ] Dream of us together, forever.
[ ] Imagine what it would be like to hold you for a time.
[ ] Spasm, pass out, and wake up in a puddle of... um...
[ ] Push harder on the accelerator.
Your voice makes me:
[ ] Sigh contentedly.
[ ] Tremble like a leaf.
[ ] Tremble like a leaf-blower.
[ ] Imagine a choir of angels with loofahs.
I made a gift for you.

Building Sand Castles: HetaliaThis land is my landBuilding Sand Castles: Hetalia4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A dead land
Empty, without a soul
Every inch soaked in blood
My heart died
Many years ago
I lived too long
To the point I don't know
What I am today
And Who I was before
Faces loom in memories
Of friends and enemies
Mixed with the faded images
Of humans from every time
Royalty and leaders
Rich and poor
Young and old
Sickly and beautiful
But who are they
I do not remember
The memories are so faded
The images are blurred
The time upon the calendars
Fade into eternity
Look down, out the window
Every one of us who live forever
Look out that window
Out to the streets below
Look upon mortality
The fear of time
That is what we see
Look upon the changing time
In a blink all we had was gone
Burned and broken
Smashed to ash
Those on the streets below
Those who live and drink and age
They are blessed with the coffin and the Reaper
Never to see what their lives amounted to
While we strive on
Building castles upon the sand
And watching the waves tear them down
As we sit alone u

In meiner Wohnung auch. Wasserrohre sind geplatzt. Heizung ist ausgefallen. Strom auch.
Ich wollte mir gerade eine Wasserflasche vom Edekamarkt gegenüber holen. Als ich bei mir zu Hause ankam, hatte ich einen Eisklotz in der Hand. Und der wird auch nicht auftauen, denn in meiner Wohnung beträgt die Temperatur ebenfalls unter null Grad.
Essen kann ich auch nichts mehr. Der Kühlschrank, der die Nahrungsmittel eigentlich auf sommerliche sieben Grad Celsius über Null warm halten sollte, funktioniert ja wegen dem Stromausfall nicht mehr. Mit meinem Hund habe ich deshalb mit der gefrorenen Schinkenwurst Frisbee gespielt. Nun hat er kaputte Zähne, weil er darauf rumkauen wollte.
Mein Antrag bei der Stadtverwaltung, ein kollektives Lagerfeuer zu veranstalten, der den Winter vertreiben sollte, wurde abgelehnt. Begründung: Mit dem Ende des Mittelalters wurden bereits alle Hexen verbrannt. In der Wissenschaft s

I don't know who I am.
What a tragedy this is.
Six feet under,
six million under the stars.
Trying to make it all work
but it won't ever work.
Look back on those blissful nights.
Is that who I was?
What a fantasy it was.
Six feet high,
climbing for six million.
Though I lost it all.
I threw it all away.
And for what?
Promises from a liar.
For a few diamonds.
Seemed like yesterday I had my jet-pack on.
Flying to the stars.
I was so close.
Memories that burn.
That's all I have.
Fuck all I have.
For what I have is nothing!
They say it's never too late,
but now it is.
Look up at the cloudy sky.
Look back at the blissful nights.
It's all over.

Dance with devils
Who have no name,
Speak in riddles,
Tell me a lethal tale
Of heroes and villains,
Become a restless soul
Cast from the storm,
Wander the universe,
Sink below oceans,
Fall into the skies
Come, get lost with me
Get lost with me
Mists hissing with serpents,
Haunting eyes tempting us,
Drawing us closer and closer,
With an echoing voice
Whispering through our minds,
A promise and a threat,
Tell all and no one,
Without saying a word,
The truth is a dangerous thing,
A double edged sword
Twisted into our hearts
Come, let's run away
Run away from me
Watch out for the thorns
Dressing the rose at your feet,
Be careful not to pick it up,
Because some things are better
When they are left alone,
Drift away from it all,
And be free of these ties,
Swept away by the wind
That is nothing but a breath,
We'll escape from everything
Come, come closer
Just come with me

These lick-a-word slam poetry styles
Piles of words,
Ryhmes in beat-hard loopdy-loops
Made on stoops and streets
Drug abused homes
And cubbyboard cardboard cutouts
Letters on the walls
And words in our minds
Thoughts and expressions,
And hand-me-down experiences
Wishes of lost,
Hard ways we've been taught
About life and love
But our regression lessons
Aren't things we lament
They're the things we learn from
And basis for spoken words and things spent
Sent time and time again
Try to have meaningful messages
Leave their mouths on the floor
And eyes open for more
Stay sweet on their tongues
And the mirror images are no longer the same
You can see pains and stains
Of secrets you didn't know remained
Gained open eye sight
Indulgent flesh fight
Stress on the truth
And all the tangled ties kept loose
But it's the point of the beat
And why I can't keep my seat
I want to leave a message in mind

Niepomnym żadnych ostrzeżeń.
Lecz me szaleństwo nie tkwi w lataniu,
Ramion nie kryję pod pierzem.
Tęsknię do ciepła, uczuć przestworzy,
Tak chciałabym w nich szybować!
Pragnę zbyt wiele? Tak Bóg mnie stworzył.
Chciałabym skrzydła zachować.
Lecz gdy się zbliżę do słońca twarzy,
Skrzydła me stają w płomieniach.
Tarcza słoneczna miast ogrzać- parzy,
Szczęście w przekleństwo się zmienia.
Tonę w odmętach własnej rozpaczy.
Bez skrzydeł, z dala od słońca.
Jestem feniksem. Wiem, co to znaczy
Odradzać się ciągle, bez końca.
