Mi única oportunidad para ser feliz... Yacía destruida, y me dejó atrás.
Qué me queda ahora, más que fingir y aparentar?
Tu dulce sonrisa, se rompe y se pierde en esta fría realidad.
El pasado nubla al presente, no se puede escapar,
Todo está mal, duele cada vez más, las agujas del reloj no giran hacia atrás...
Triste deseo, acompaña a esta esperanza quebrada en mil pedazos, que no quiere dejar de existir, que no quiere irse,
Por qué te quitaron lo que más anhelabas?
Osuros pensamientos, te llenan de melancolía, de vacío arrepentimiento, querer seguir adelante no sirve de nada, si tu corazón sigue esperando despertar de este horrible sueño...
"Por qué me llenaste de sueños en tan poco tiempo?
Por qué te dejé hacerlo y no me arrepiento?"
El tiempo no espera a nadie, incluso va más rápido de lo que el corazón pue

In this small room I'm going insane.
Walls closing in around me so tight.
Wishing somebody would turn on a light.
Whispering voices floating in the air.
Invisible eyes that only seem to stare.
Cuts on my wrists and blood on the ground.
As much as I scream I don't make a sound.
Tears fall down my face as I collapse to the ground.
Maybe if I cry enough I might drown.
They tell lies.
They say this is the place I'm going to die.
They taunt me.
Laugh at me too.
They whisper in my ear "theirs not a thing you can do."
I rip out my hair.
The voices just tell me "nobody cares."
"They do!" I scream as I fall to the floor.
I curl in a ball because I just can't take anymore.
Cover my eyes.
I guess the voices didn't lie when they said I would die.
I hope when I'm gone it wont be like this.
Because this is something I defiantly won't miss.
I know it's my time and this is the end.
At these times they say "D

Well, if you're mad There
and I'm Here as well
that means I'm mad too!
And if Here is There
and that is Everywhere,
then one would think
that includes you!
we're all mad
And if Everywhere is Anywhere
that makes the whole world
and if Here is There or Anywhere,
that would make the whole world mad too!
It's a mad, mad place
when Everyone is mad.
It's a funny, funny place
in this crazy land
but if the world is mad
and we are too,
Here, There, Anywhere

and if the whole world is mad

then that would mean
no one is mad
everyone is just very,very sane.

Some say it doesn't exist,
But fools they are indeed,
For we know there is nothing such as this

Youth4 AM. A quiet time, when not even the earliest risers have stirred from their dream rumpled beds. The night watchmen, such as they are, have long nodded off to sleep, and cars roar seldom cross the black pavement of the nighted roads. In city restaurant the coffee has not yet begun to boil, and in country tavern the last black sludge no longer lurks in the bottom of the deepest pot. The only noise is that of the wind, and a great noise it is, whirling through the trash and weeds that line the darkened streets, carrying with it naught but a strange whistle. Tonight though, the wind seems to have direction, purpose, licking around the tumbledown yards and cracked streets, creeping across the unlighted detritus to a single goal. There it swirls, around a house where light always shines, and strange noises may often be heard. It not a place of beginning, or one of ending, but one of the in between, where journeys pass through, but never stop.Youth8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

You weren't sure how you felt or more like what you were supposed to be feeling. Were you supposed to be happy right now? After all it was nearly a fact that Estonia loved you the way you loved him. But still...you were leaning more toward nervousness. You had loved Estonia for some time now and there had been a whole lot of drama, confusion, and emotional rollercoasters leading up to you confronting him now. You weren't even sure what you were going to say to him when you saw him, and even if things went well...your relationship was going to chage drastically...part of you wanted that but at the same time you wondered: would you be ready for it? Would it work out the way you always dreamed it would? Or would you end up finding out that you weren't as compatible as you thought and the relationship would end broken beyond repair to the point where you couldn't even be friends anymore. You didn't know...was this even a good idea..? Maybe you should just give up on this entirely...maybe--

AFTER LEAVING THE CHAMBERS, HADES HURRIEDLY WENT TO HIS.
As soon as he was inside, he slammed the door shut behind him. It echoed with a loud thud. A passing thought went through his head about Persephone hearing it, but he ignored it, cursing himself as he thought of her.
Why could he not get her out of his head? Why was it that every single time he closed his eyes, he would see hers?
It drove him mad, this unknown feeling. What was it? He remembered a time ago, when he had thought what he was feeling was love. That too, was an unknown feeling to him. He had seen it, certainly. He had seen the loved ones of the dead grieving for the souls of the Underworld he now ruled over. But that was somehow different than what he felt now, and he knew that the feeling he was experiencing was not such a pathetic thing as love.
He cursed to himself, and walked to the table, seeing the bowl of blackened water. Hades forced himself to look inside of it, looking in on the mortal world.

The unthinkable happened: Anders was sick.
Well, it wasn't entirely unthinkable, really. He did have a habit of skipping meals because he was too absorbed in the patients in his clinic or helping out with the mage underground. This was exactly why Hawke spent most of her free time helping out around the clinic. When she wasn't being his assistant, she was sitting in a chair off to the side with her knitting. It was her duty as his friend to look out for him since he seemed to be allergic to looking out for himself.
Hawke's eyebrows furrowed and her bottom lip jutted out pitifully at the use of the word. Friend. Pffft. It bothered her greatly. She understood why he didn't want to pursue anything, but it still got to her. These feelings that swirled beneath the surface... that kept her eyes on him at all times... They consumed her.

PERSEPHONE SAT IN HER ROOM, glancing at the window. There was not much to look at. Hades had put her room away from the others, toward the wastelands of the Underworld, the empty lands, where there was nothing much besides black ground and pillars of smoke. She knew that if her room were at the other end of the palace, she would see fire and destruction.
Hades had said he would return in a day or two. That meant she still had a slight chance to get out. Not of the Underworld. She knew that was impossible. She wanted to at least see the gardens. If anything, they were still growing things, and they offered no ridicule or emotions.
She stood, walking over to her door, opening it so there was only a small crack. The large, black dog outside of her door was sleeping soundly, even snoring slightly. The snore was deep and ragged, more like a growl with each inhale.
Persephone slid out of her door, shutting the door softly. The dog did not stir.

My clothes have become drenched,
time and again,
with the bright, crimson blood
of my friends,
whom I have repeatedly doomed.
Every time, it's been easier to
figure things out, find
patterns that occur in these loops.
But it seems that no matter
what I do, one after one,
they fall at the hands of
that thing, that monster.
Every time, I find its claws dripping
with the world's blood.
That first visit

That white piano coated the color

The man like my brother laid between
the two once called "Red", spread out
on the white sheets.
Two with fair hair placed on white beds,
the third stayed by their side
because he couldn't be their hero.
And finally, the two brothers, to whom
I was very close, on the white floor,
gave me the key as they breathed their last encouragements.
With these feet, I was able to escape
out into the rain.
But at what cost?

For some reason, this irked Sasuke the most; he'd hoped Sakura would've been more mature and understanding. Obviously he was mistaken.

I tear this skin from my body,
Even if the world screams,
That I am only an illusion.
I tear the bones from my legs,
Through pain, I will grow,
Through suffering, I will become.
I rip the muscles from my arms,
These teeth from my jaws...
And with nothing upon me,
I carry on...
Like a broken puppet, still shivering,
Still forcing its way through the darkness;
I tremble for I am nothing...
And yet, I am moving. My voice still screams...
I draw breath into these tired lungs,
As I rip the flesh away...
And I shatter these mirrors before me,
With a voice that will not break:
Because the world cannot label me as nothing,
And I will live for my own sake!
