six days ago you left a note,
and promised the world you would die.
your eyes are destiny,
i can see the patterns aligning
in the stars. there is
consecration in the grief.
coins flashing last-day sighs,
your lips pink and pink
against chalky exhaustion.
your mind was truth.
you left textures in the darkness
and the candle flames. linoleum and dried milk
and gasoline. beautiful, you thought.
Of Keyblades and KokonutsIn another world somewhere, there was a vast island called Kongo Bongo. It was filled with mountains, jungles, and beaches galore. And the whole place was peaceful...until a recent visit by the Heartless spoiled the peace. Now the island was under a dark veil, a seemingly endless night.Of Keyblades and Kokonuts9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
One particular day, two apes were out patrolling the forest for any activity. One of them was a huge gorilla with brown fur and a red necktie with the initials D.K. on it. This was Donkey Kong, the future ruler of Kongo Bongo Island who perferred to be called DK for short. With him was his sidekick, Diddy Kong, a chimpanzee with brown fur, and a red shirt and cap. The duo wandered through the jungle, watching for any Heartless that may spring out at them.
"Why did we volunteer to patrol the Forbidden Forest for these stupid shadow things?" DK asked.
"Cuz you're the future ruler of Kongo Bongo, ya big goof," Diddy replied. "We also gotta search for the Crystal Coconut; you can't rule Kongo Bongo without
The Bird and the TreeShe’s got such beautiful eyesThe Bird and the Tree10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
It’s so hard to even breathe when she’s around
She’s a fireball
A whirling dervish
A spark in the boy’s grey world
Her voice is a flowing melody
Of excited crescendos
And passionate andantes
A full score of exquisite music
Which warms the soul
And touches the heart
When she is around
Everything seems brighter
A swirl of rainbow colour
In the torrent of grey
A lone lantern in the dark
Brightening the shadows
Her love is like a raft
Saving them both
From the tumultuousness of the sea that is society
Their love is a different
She is a little bird, soaring in the sky
He is a tree, rooted to the ground
Love is a blanket
Warm, soft, and protective
Knowing the girl like he knows her
The boy knows what they’re gonna do with their blanket
They will pull up some chairs
And make a blanket fort to hide beneath and hold hands through the night

que recorren mi piel.
que se alejan sin querer.
¿Dónde fuiste, mi vida,
porqué quisiste marchar?
¿Por qué me dejaste tirado,
donde fuiste sin avisar?
En la mesa, una foto
contigo detrás de un cristal.
Los dos juntos, sonriendo,
yo no dejo de llorar.
Vaciando tus recuerdos
Marchaste, sin dos puñales
Ni una nota, tan sólo ambos
que en mi corazón clavaste.
¿Dónde fuiste, mi vida,
Por qué me abandonaste?
¿Qué te hice para que nunca
pueda volver a abrazarte?
Allí donde hayas ido,
si alguna vez me lees,
espero que seas feliz,
que todo te vaya bien.
Allí donde hayas ido
sin dejarme despedir,
espero que al menos
no sufras tú por mí.
¿Por qué te fuiste en silencio,
sin decirme siquiera adiós?
Mil consejos, mil recuerdos
que se esfumaron con el sol.
Una rosa de tantos pétalos
para amar y que marchó

Today is my birthday! Well, I guess half of my birthday. You see, I have a twin sister, Jessica, and she's just a big goody two shoes. Everybody loves her more than me, even if they won't admit it.
Anyway, math class just started, so thank god the day is almost ov- "Hey everyone, it's Jessica's birthdays!" Suddenly the whole class breaks into a chorus of "Happy Birthday". What's sad is that the only person who even remembers I'm Jessica's twin, Danny, thinks that she's hot. "It's okay Jackson," he says, "At least you don't have to have a period each month." That joke makes me burst out laughing, until I realize my teacher, Mr. Edwards, is staring at me. "Mr. Graham, go to the office!" he commands. Great, just my luck.
Luckily there was only an hour left until the bell rang. As soon as I hear it, I head to my locker, grab my stuff, and get on my bus. A minute later, Danny gets on and

Kairi stood in front of the tetherball court. She slowly made the ball go all around the pole, and then made it come back. So the first week of fourth grade... not as exciting as it seeme, but it was alright for the first week. Her short auburn hair blew in the wind, and her cute little skirt and shirt made her look absolutely adorable. It was her first year at this school called, Twilight Town Elementary. A boy with spiky brown hair, wearing the most rediculous outfit walked up to her. "Hi." He smiled.
"Hi." She squeeked. He smiled at her, and she smiled back. "I'm Sora." The boy said, in his girly little voice. "I'm Kairi." Kairi said. "Can I play with you?" Sora asked blushing a bit. Kairi nodded and took the opposite side. She pushed the tether ball to Sora, and he hit it. Kairi hit it back, a lot harder, and it hit Sora in the forhead. "Ow!" He said. Kairi covered her mouth with her hands. "I'm sooo sorry!" She said. The ball came to her side and she hit it again,

“Have a nice day, ma’am.”
“Why, thank you, young gentleman!”
I sigh as I stare at my watch. 3:59. My shift is just about over. I take my apron off and I head to the locker room behind the deli counter. Though working the counter job at a deli is hard work, it’s worth it if I get to call anything my own.
As I finish getting my things together, my boss, Jeff, walks up to me.
“I’m impressed, Daniel,” my boss begins, “Most of the teens who take shifts here expect easy pay. You, though, you work hard.”
“It’s, well, it’s nothing,” I say, trying hard not to smile, “I just don’t want to half-ass anything.”
“Well that’s a good thing to hear!” Jeff says with a laugh, “We don’t want you to be undeserving of your new raise, am I right?”
Sora's FamilySome time ago, there was a young boy named Sora, who lived on a faroff island with his best friends, Riku and Kairi. They lived day to day on the island happily together. But one day, disaster struck, as the trio was seperated from each other. Fortunately for Sora, he wielded a strange weapon known only as the Keyblade. And he encountered Donald Duck and Goofy in a place called Traverse Town. That was where Sora's grand adventure began. Sora, Donald, and Goofy traveled through lush jungle groves, sprawling desert terrain, tranquil undersea valleys, and land crawling with spooks of every shape and size imaginable. After exploring all these regions, they defeated a meniacal man who sought out the ultimate power by means of the Door to Darkness. With the man defeated, Sora sealed the Door to Darkness while unfortunately trapping his best friend Riku and King Mickey Mouse, who Donald and Goofy were searching for, on the other side.Sora's Family9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Moira ventured up to the old inventor's house to see the boy with the scissors for hands often after that.
After making sure nobody was watching her behind the net curtains of the pastel washed bungalows she passed, she would run along the street and straight up to the forlorn and twisted old gates. This was only the start of the journey. She would then slither through them - they were swinging drunkenly off their hinges - make her way up the steep and tree-lined hill, through the massive gatehouse with its leering demons and then on through the frost rimed garden until she abruptly came to a halt in front of the massive ironbound oak door.
It was never locked. She always half expected that today, maybe it would be, and that there was really nobody up here in the twisted old manor house but she also knew that the ghost who haunted it could never leave.
Moira would climb up the great silver and stone staircase, sending the dust clouds whirling, up and up a

The boy with the scissors for hands had been walking along the length of the metal conveyor belt in the great inventing room, poking and prodding at the ominous metal machines that spanned it.
At this precise moment Edward had eased himself onto his back, and was lying on the belt itself, peering upwards while fiddling with one of the spindly, pastry-cutting robots. He looked a little like a garage mechanic right now except for the fact that this mechanic's fearsome tools were riveted permanently to the ends of his arms with great rods and bolts, and very few mechanics wear shining black skin-tight leather, sewn and bound up with innumerable buckles, straps and studs. Any further pretence to ordinary humanity ended with the strange boy's face however.
Technically it could have been a beautiful face, and perhaps it may even have been so once, long, long ago. There was an underlying regular

It's a strange word isn't it?
Four letters constructed into a word that could change one's life forever.
I remember the first time I experienced the word 'love', it was applied to a sentence containing two other words. Both of which connected me to another person directly through strong feelings and emotions by the means of a statement. A statement I will never forget.
"I love you."
To be honest I don't think it was what was said that startled me but who was saying it. It came from my best, and childhood, friend. His name is Axel, and he managed to turn my world upside down with three simple words strung into a statement. Probably the strongest statement someone could ever make.
"You what?" It was stupid that that was all I could think to say, but I was in shock, and I'm sure brain malfunction is something that's almost always paired with that.
"Oh god," was the answer I received to my question as Axel put his hands over his face, muffling his next words. "I shouldn't ha

Which nobody seems to note,
Nor even ask
Of the beauty that is afloat
Amongst the high vanity
That has crept its way
Into the heart of society.
She holds little to no faith,
Finding it to be despicable
Having hidden her face
And thinking herself as invisible.
When, in fact,
She is beautiful.

As I kiss her into the bed.
Her mouth is parted,
Inviting me in.
She's never acted this way before.
Always alone, always sulking.
But now she's opened up
She's shown me her scars, her tears.
I lick her neck right under the chin
She squirms under me, sighing for more.
But I don't.
Laying down besides her,
I kiss her on the head.
She may pout in protest,
But I just pull her closer.
Until she's wrapped in my arms.
She fits me, like a puzzle piece.
I'm not ever letting her go,
Not even if she dies.

Residing in the dusk,
Wings torn off and thrown in the dust
I found the innocence he destroyed
I've lost my childhood, snatched in my dreams.
Just when we think we've got it, it turns to a lie.
I am the little girl who can never die.
No peace, no love, no rest,
I am the doll who wishes for death.
The hand that destroys,
Never quite turns out the light.
Leaving the child alone with the fear of the night.
I was what you wanted.
What you could never have.
Reaching out, you wanted to touch.
I'll tear you down, you sick fuck.
The dirt, the hate, the feeling spreads.
She's the little girl, trapped in my head.
Claiming you're innocent, saying I lie.
You tore me apart, left me to die.
It's not the body, it was always the mind.
Physically breathing, dead on the inside.
Never again will I sleep with no fear.
Never again will I love or shed a childs tears.
Never again will I be able to truly dream.
Never again am the child I had been

You told me that everything would be okay as your hand found mine.
You promised me the world and all the love you had.

Wrapped in a bow.

Sepia shadows striated the dusty wooden floorboards of a long abandoned attic. The silence was as soft as the worm eaten rafters and yet was there a breath softer than silence? A spider's dark shadow in the far corner against the wall shifted ever so slightly. There ran the spider, away, skittering over the bare beams, but somehow the long and crooked shadow remained.
A figure drifted from the gloom, less purposeful than the spider, yet horribly alike. It was almost as if a designer, drawing up plans for a fantastically thin and looming spectre, had conceived this very figure on paper as the true spirit of a spider, all legs, and horrid black angularity and yet had compromised in the face of practical reality and was finally able only to produce a mere insect.
No spider in a child's worst nightmare could have matched this black and ragged apparition of dust and apparent decay. The creature appeared to be composed of scraps, spare parts and limbs bound tog
