What down in the ground there be
A sweet, sounding melody
From the dark and dusty depth.
From the mouth of you to me,
Comes the startling story
Of your fearful, frightening flee!
Why, it took away my breath.
I hope that you know and see,
That, it's true, your heart should be
singing that sweet melody
And it's sounding from the depth.
It's 'come very clear to me,
All of your humanity.
Questioning their sanity,
Now, I calmly leave my breath.

because a frown,
just says "regret."
The perfect smile.
The perfect speak.
The perfect keep
failure for the weak.
So keep bright eyes,
and cherry-red grins.
Hide away all
your guilty sins...
The moment you pull away
that mask made of skin,
the world will cease spinning,
a living hell to begin.
wintergirl.She's a wintergirl.wintergirl.5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
You can see it in her eyes like oceans so deep the bottom is incomprehensible, in the way her bones are tent poles for her pale skin. She spends days skimming the surface, almost there but not quite, as if her thoughts are caught somewhere else where snow falls and settles onto distant minds.
It's not healthy; then again, nothing about her is. I wish she could remember Before, the days when beauty wasn't judged by numbers. When the winter was only outside the window, and she was able to sit beside us on the rug and drink hot cocoa without calculating calories.
It is Christmas, but this time the snow falling outside is inside her heart as well.
And what can I say to her? She is an icicle on the window sill, still as the skeleton trees outside. There remains beauty in her icy exterior, even huddled as she is in her turtlenecks because she can never get warm. My words only float past her as if they are snowflakes, easily brushed off, while hers pierce me like December

Not at all
I can't survive off you and God alone
Cause I could
But I have a thirst
This heart driving pyre
A goal to e all I can be
In the hearts
And the minds
Of the people I meet
I want to shake hands
I want to dive deep
Into their trust holding wells
And their friendship seas
I want to be a part of the group
The In crowd
I want to have inside jokes
And laugh loud
It's a soul crushing
Weight fully placed pushing part
Of my passionately laced
And these questions, these Questions
My mind can't keep at bay
Why can't I be a part of this?
Why can't I stay?
What is it that I'm doing so wrong
So unable to breakthrough these love-friendship walls
All of the people I watch and adore
I'm not so sure they think of me anymore
Just know that I love them-
All of you, I do-
In spite of it all,
I may just have to survive
With me, God, and you.

(We see a fire burning.)
Mamimi (V.O.) - I saw a god the other day. (We see the bridge. A large fire rages nearby.) By the river, on a rainy afternoon. He helped a kitten that was left all alone. (We see black feathers falling.) It's a god that only I can see. A black-winged angel that came down from the heavens just for me.
(We see Mamimi's POV as she plays a hand-held video-game.)
Naota (O.C.) - What are you doing?
Mamimi - Huh? (She looks up. We see Nandaba Naota, looking down at us. He looks pretty steamed. Mamimi responds with excitement.) Hey, Takkun!

Gewonnen hat er jede Schlacht.
Er sah gut aus und hatte Schneid,
Verführen konnt‘ er jede Maid.
Doch jede, die ihm Lieb‘ gewährt,
Hat er ganz schamlos nur entehrt.
Bis dass er Guinevere geseh'n
Da war es um sein Herz gescheh'n.
Er wollt‘ zu ihr, doch ritt der Tor
Auf schmalem Pfad direkt durchs Moor.
Und ob der Last des großen Recken
Blieb elend fest der Gaul dort stecken.
So stieg er ab mit lautem Platsch,
Da steckt‘ auch er im tiefen Matsch.
So sah ihn Guinevere noch winken
Und langsam dann im Schlamm versinken.

But no longer woe was she.
As she spreads black, the evenings scar
To lay to rest his memory.
Too long she’s lain under his reign;
Her heart disheveled, sad and caged.
Freedom lies within the pain,
And now a calm within the rage.
No more of hiding, nor of fear
While burying her wounding knife,
She sheds one solitary tear
Only for the loss of life.
“Lighthouse”, She prays,
“Lead me home tonight!”
“Something I've never had”, she says,
“Is a future: clear and bright”

2- Yahweh's song (seen in Revelation) sucks. Lady Gaga at least can write slightly more convincing lyrics, and she knows proper song structure.
3- Yahweh hates people who don't hurt anyone. Lady Gaga is either an activist for those people or doesn't harm them at the very least.

Each monster and stray;
All of those who I hate,
All that sin and decay.
I envy, burn, scorch them,
Then dead leave them to lay!
Yet my heart seems to yearn
For the respect that they pay.
Why do I desire
To kiss then to slay?
Why have you let me
Just do what I may?
Oh LORD, how I'm sorry!
I don't know what to say.
For the people I love-
I killed more today.
And I know I could ask you
To take this all away...
But LORD, I'm addicted,
To their sin and decay.

Ließen dann den Ring reinplumpsen
Hörten laut des Berges Rumsen,
Danach, sie flogen wieder heim,

HawaHawa3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
This is Hawa. She is from an unknown pride. She moved into Gamba's pride shortly after his brother(Galzali) took over for their father. She became Galzali's mate but they never had any cubs since Galzali passed away not long after she joined. She didn't stay heart broken fro long though. She quickly decided that Kopa would become her mate and she refuses to accept that he doesn't want anything to do with her. She is very manipulative, especially to Abebe who has more curiosity in her little body than anything else. She tries playing up to the cubs because she knows Kopa loves them but none of them really like her that much. All the lions put up with her simply because she was the "perfect" son's mate. The only lion that isn't polite to her is Najat.

It was nearly dawn when Tristan stepped into his Master's study to find him browsing through applicants in his email. He knew that this process had left his friend weary and frustrated. Already, several promising applicants had been interviewed and very few remained. It seemed that Alexi measured everyone by Finn's standards which made it impossible for the poor bastards to even have a chance. Still, he hoped his master would find what he sought. Carefully, he set the hot tea on the far side of the desk in case it was to spill.
"You look terrible, sir. Why don't you take a break and let me search through these for you?" he offered
Without answering directly, Alexi stood and took the mug of tea in his hand, savoring its warmth. For a moment he said nothing and just sat down in the chair in front of the desk. Even exhausted as he was, the vampire was quite exquisite; his ivory skin, long dark hair and haunting blue eyes made his the object of many men's desires.

that sometimes it's hard to believe it's beautiful.
When darkness gently swallows you
and becomes the light you breathe, the light you see.
Sometimes you have to look for it
in a lover's voice, the sound of rain on the city rooftops
the blush of winter, the soft tread of strangers on the street
whispered promises in abandoned places
the weight of a hushed word in a dark room.
Sometimes you have to look for it,
but sometimes it finds you.

So he eventually began to hunt with the lionesses and grew to be a very skilled hunter.
