Run...The moon above shines brightly in all of its glory,Run...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a distant storm echoes in the distance.
These feelings churn inside of me,
begging to be released.
They throb in my chest, threatening to consume me.
Fire rips through my ribs,
darkness incarnate fights to be released.
My mind swirls and my body spasms,
I am becoming an abomination unfit for the world.
I scream in pain, but no one will hear.
Howling in agony I try to outrun the pain,
but to no avail.
I collapse to the ground, and stare at the sky
as I lay there in the wet grass.
The storm is approaching.
Pain erupts in my mind.
Never before have I felt like this.
Every past sin gathers to bring this pain.
I struggle to remember to breath,
and feel my lungs burn.
I'm running again,
everything is a blur.
I can't stop it this time,
there will be no turning back.
The dark clouds roll on,
choking out the light of the moon.
No one can save me now,
I belong to the night.
Appearances and InsecurityThe pretty girl stares at the reflection,Appearances and Insecurity6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
every flaw is seen,
every failure noticed.
The little voice kept deep inside,
plants false lies,
within her head.
She thinks out loud,
too fat, too bad, too ugly,
not beautiful at all.
Her insecurity is harsh to see,
a heavy burden,
when she doesn't see herself clearly.
She stares into the mirror,
believing all its lies,
appearances can be misleading,
what counts is deep inside.
To her friends she is a wonder,
a treasure beyond its worth,
told their honest truths,
insecurity is still her curse.
Though so beautiful,
on the outside that we see,
still she is cursed,
with this horrid insecurity.
Her fear and her doubt,
every girls pain,
eating her up,
making her vain.
The reflection outside,
wont show whats within,
this battle is fought,
hoping to win.
Fighting her fears,
and the doubts in her mind,
facing her demons,
her strength she must find.

rage in the wind,
coloured grey with smoke
and a face like thunder.
you hung yourself
with your beautiful innards.
god, look at them glisten.
god, look at them shiver.
god, look at you,
your face fading to white
until you look as empty
as you had told me you
now you weren't anything.
now you were dead.
and all i can see --
when i close my eyes,
when i fall asleep --
are the beautiful pink ropes
shimmering in hot fluorescent light
that turned you into an angel
as you dangled above my floor.
Secret of LoveIve determined that love isnt something you can look forSecret of Love6 years ago in Open More Like This
If you look too hard, it will never reveal itself
If you disregard it completely, you will simply pass it by
There has to be a middle ground
Someone in between desperation and apathy
This is where love blossoms
You have to be able to recognize that flicker of emotion
But you can not force it into existence
You cannot always chase after a false hope
But you must be willing to recognize when something has true meaning
You have to be aware that love exists
But not desperate to prove it
It is too complicated for most to understand
And too wild for anyone to master
You must simple trust it is real
And trust that it will find you
If you give up you will be lost
If you try to force it you will push it away
Things will never go as you expect
Especially when it comes to love
It is too unexplainable and sudden
In time it will find you
As long as you are open to it

RottingI feel it deep inside, rotting. Pieces shrivel and fall away--my body--corroding to dust. The pain ripped my soul in the beginning. Now, it just tickles. My stomach twists and turns as it decays; my heart aches as it erodes.Rotting8 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I swallow the pills--2, 3, 10 times the dosage. My lungs bubble like a child blowing air through their milk [like you learned to last spring]. It gets harder to breathe as they dissolve, harder to think as my brain crumbles. Harder to live as your memories disintegrate.
I feel myself rotting; dying.
So, I laugh.

Ceil was trying to sleep.
Trying and failing that is.
The curtains had been opened near five minutes before hand, and the light was shining right into his good eye, despite the amount of pillows he threw towards the window.
Cursing didn't seem to be helping much either, each time he cursed Sebastian would click his tongue in that annoying manner he did and scold him, half heartedly, but still.
Finally lifting himself from his stomach and onto his knees, Ceil snatched his eye patch from the bedside table, quickly fastening it up around his head, glad that the light wasn't hurting his bad eye as much now.
A small victorious smirk twisted its way onto the demon's lips, ruby eyes narrowing in glee as his master picked himself up.
He had decided this approach to waking the boy up in the morning, and it seemed after a while, it worked as the pre-teen surrendered to the sun's demanding rays.
"Good morning, young lord," he greeted, the smirk never leaving his pale and sharp features as

Outside its pouring; heaven's wrath.
On the stone table I carve my epitaph
in the void of delusion
I'm so confused
Fighting a battle
I'm the one with everything to lose..
Nail my wings to the black crucifix,
leave me there to suffocate and die
when the light goes out of me
you're the one who will be living the lie
One last touch, one last kiss
let go of me as I fall into that dark abyss
poisoned, my fallen angel's broken heart.
Sink your fangs of lust into me
slowly spread your poison as I breathe
In the eagle's talons,
that threaten to let go
the seeds of evil you planted
kills my mind and soul upon its growth...
Divine lord, forgive my sins,
may the dark claw release me
a fallen angel, i bleed without hate
as i fall far from heaven's gate
i'm still thinking of our last time together...
The lightning is the snake's fork tongue
It strikes without mercy
I know what I've done wrong
Bound deeply in the horror
of pain, and hurt and sorrow

Or possibly not, I thought as I caught sight of Andy pulling up and felt my heart trying to break though my ribcage. Deliberately, I turned away from him and immersed myself in my Chemistry folder while lounging against my car. I didn't look up again until he was right next to me.
"Ashley?" he said softly, as if asking permission. I desperately tried to look anywhere but into his gently smoldering blue eyes. If I did, I might break down again.
"Ash, I need you to speak to me," Andy insisted, uncertainty and urgency edging his words.
Still not looking directly at him, I nodded to tell him that he could continue.
"... What have I done to make you hate me? I need to know, so... so I can fix it." Andy dropped

Hold hands with you under the candle light,
Let my mind waver when you hold me close,
The way my heart soars at the sight of your smile.
When I speak I could see your eyes come alive,
Your kind face echoing expressions of everything I like.
And you always take your time when you do arrive,
Making me screaming warm and everything inside.
I laid in bed this day and thought of you,
The trees fluttered with the wind as I missed you.
I know it isn't going to be very long,
But I think this is how we know we are in love.
Razor Blade Symphony: Ch. 22It was almost twenty-four hours before I heard anything from Andy. I couldn't talk to him. Even just seeing his name on my phone made my heart ache. Everything he told me felt like a lie. How could he say he loved me and then go and pull a scene like that because of Scout? It didn't make sense to me. It sounded like he played me and I wanted nothing to do with him.Razor Blade Symphony: Ch. 224 years ago in Romance More Like This
Over the next couple of days, I ignored every text message and phone call I received from Andy. If it wasn't for Clary, I would have turned my phone off completely. It was a bright, humid afternoon when Andy finally stopped blowing up my phone. I thought he finally got the message. I stood in the hot shower. My eyes were closed as I concentrated on the water running down my naked body. My thoughts brought me to every moment I spent with Andy and I felt completely discussed with myself. But, no matter how much I scrubbed, I couldn't get rid of the dirty feeling. Never again! Never again will I let myself be swept up by a guy.

But a venom I cant stay away from
Tasting you always brings pain
But I always want more
I try to pull away
But you always pull me back
One taste of you and I was poisoned
But I never knew
Not until I tried to leave
But by then it was too late
Without the venom I felt nothing
But were emotions worth the pain
I see you for what you are now
But still I cant leave
You are a snake
But I do not fear you
You are a liar
But I trust you
You are unstable
But I can balance you
You dont deserve it
But I will always take you back
You are like venom
But maybe I can cure you

Really, I'd stopped trying
Sat on the sidelines
Laughed with my friends
Convinced myself that I didn't need it
That I didn't care
And then ...
There she was
And it was almost immediate
I didn't recognize it
Because maybe I'd never really had it
Did it start in my chest?
And was it her smile?
I was scared of it
Scared of her
Because I knew what it meant
And I wanted not to care
I fought it
And lost to it
And for a year
She was mine
But it's never quite fair
And it slipped through my fingers
And then she was gone
And I cried for her
And hated them
Now that it's left me
I know I'm still waiting
I know I still care
I want it to stop
But when does it ever do what you want?
Sometimes I wish I'd never had it
But mostly I wish
That I still had her.

He swore he'd never hurt me. He promised me, he told me that he loved me. Then he cheated on me. With some guy at one of our concerts. He had been talking with this fan, who couldn't have been older then 18 and at first I didn't think anything of it. Ashley has a reputation of being a bit of a flirt.
To tell the truth the boy did make me jealous. He was gorgeous. Beautiful emerald green eyes that sparkled in the light, shoulder length honey blond hair that cut across his pale face. Thin pink lips that bore a set of silver snake bites, and a nice little body as well.
