Throwing Life AwayShe's not afraid of rejection, she's not afraid of painThrowing Life Away8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This familiar feeling of depression is all the same
She needs someone to care for, someone to adore
She's not afraid of pain, she's already been tore
She's no longer afraid of a broken heart
She's used to getting torn apart
She's used to the problems she's been dealt
Pain doesn't hurt when its all you've ever felt
She's not afraid of death, she's not afraid of tears
Life is such a waste if you only care about fears
Before I knew it, the sadness inside me grew
My life is such a mess and I don't know what to do
She doesn't care about what she wears
Or the way that she does her hair
The people who only look for that
Are the ones who stab your back
The only people who talked to her needed advice
They always overlooked how she was very nice
This terrible torturing feeling of pain
Always feels the exact same
People make her ashamed of who she's become
Look into her heart and see where the tears come from
She's not afraid of pain, she's

Stereotyping, patriarchy, and objectification -
Women keep claiming to be subjects of such oppression.
Apparently, I'm a victim of social, political, and economic segregation.
I search my memory to remember such crime
But all I recall is my mother saying, "Men are all pigs,"
As she pigged out in front of Lifetime.
But I admit at this time in my life
She might not be the best example of reason and rhyme
So I turn to my peers who are "down" with the times.
But all I see are girls complaining about all the weight they've been gaining
Or the orgasms they've been feigning
Or how "Mike keeps looking at my chest and doesn't listen to what I'm saying"
As they adjust their push-up bras, ignoring all laws of decency.
And is it hard to see why this "feminism" confuses me?
You screetch and preach for rights and fight for equality
While the reality shows that you've fashioned your lifestyles into some reality show
That is the very essence of inequality that you claim to be fighting against.

"Give it up, Henderson," a young soldier with sandy brown hair shook his head as his compatriot continued to poke his head into the empty cupboards of the evacuated buildings.
"Come on, just a few more," the other called back. "They can't have taken everything with them. There's bound to be some food or a bottle around here someplace."
"There probably is," Edwards shot back with a deep sigh, "but it's getting dark and we need to get back to the regiment before the sergeant has us swinging KP duty for the rest of our tour."
"Alright, alright," Henderson shrugged reluctantly as he closed yet another empty cabinet. "Just one more house."
"You look through one more," Edwards shook his head with a small smirk at his friend's tenacity…or maybe it was stupidity, he could never quite decide which. "I'm heading back while I can still see the way."
"Fine, I'll see you back at camp," Henderson called after him as he slipped back into the waning light, "
This Is LustThis Is Lust9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sucking this apartment dry of all restrictions
Walking in constant circles
Bleeding in endless cycles
This is lust!!
What to call passion that won't die,
but a lack of intent to pursue anything more?
My vague idea of love?
Correct in that assumption
On target! Good eye!
In the process of learning to stutter
W-W-Waste time until the time comes
For time to be measured in fractions of a second
I haven't the attention span to appreciate
this developmental stage, these years, all these years
They crawl by and she sits still
This is lust! THIS IS LUST!!
When clarity is reached, a moment of silence is a regular experience
But here in my head, silence is worshipped
Everything is in motion and she sits still
Everyone is busy and she sits still
Begging the heart to quit racing and she sits still...
At this point, this is all I know
An idle state of mind is desired and she sits still

Plans made with no destination,
Lead tears clean through
When words hold back,
And smear the mess.
Sit in silence for awhile
Watch the clock turn for awhile
To the rhythm
Of words lost and blackened
Is it naive
To search for the rail?
A guide be but too expensive,
Thoughts simply lean and pour into a vase of savings.

Everything I do is flawed,
Every moment feels like a retake,
Breaking the same stupid "laws".
I stutter when I should speak clearly,
I shout when I should hold my tounge,
My words always cost me dearly,
I even hum when I should've sung.
I'm forever the fool,
Never the wise,
I can't see the truth,
Hidden among the lies.
Over and over and over again,
Trapped in a timeless loop that never ends,
I'm just afraid that at the end of it,
I wont have any more friends.
Ella's FairytaleElla's Fairytale9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
This is a fairytale. There is a prince, a marriage, and a quest. But it is not about the heroine, who is brave and virtuous and beautiful. This story is not about her. It is not about the evil stepmother who made her life miserable and plotted to kill her. It is not about the brave animal that bore her from the palace into a life of servitude as a peasant tending to the pigs. It is not about the three cakes she baked for the prince, or the times she stood by the river in her finery where she thought no one would see her. She is not important to this story.
This story is instead about Ella, who is brave and virtuous and beautiful, but perhaps not as much as the princess. She didn't have a wicked stepmother or a magical talking animal. Her father is a miller and he has a gentle and loving wife with two sons and one daughter. The sons are not her faithful guardians, nor are they w

Throughout Ahiru's time as Princess Tutu she had met many interesting and, down right odd people. There had been Hermia-san, the girl who delivered love letters as Bottom-san, a woman who ran a restaurant in the woods, and various animal-people, but the most eccentric of them all by far had been Femio-san . . .
. . . and he only seemed to have gotten worse with time.
It had been four months since Fakir had turned her human again, and while people had not remembered her – though Charon did, he said it was hard to forget the one girl Fakir didn't hate at his school, Ahiru had blushed at that – she had made friends with Pique and Lillie again, and she was once again enrolled in the academy. Life had been good for Ahiru, she was still incredibly clumsy but without having to worry about heart shards, and ravens she'd been able to focus more on dancing, and – with Fakir's help – she was getting better.
Now Ahiru clearly remembered the first time she met Femio-san, he wasn't someone you can r

We never really did get each other,
Why did you break me and mommys heart?
Remember when you went to rehab?
Remember when you came back drunk?
Remember when you beat poor mom,
and how she begged for you to stop?
Remember when you cried that night,
And promised you would change?
I remember when I realized,
That you would always be the same
With a beer in your hand
A glazed look in your eyes,
Sometimes I would just ask god,
-Please make daddy die -
I remember when mommy sat me down,
She couldnt breathe from all the crying
-Papi has cancer Daniel, your fathers dying-
I jumped up from the sofa and screamed You know hes lying!
But for once you told the truth.
The doctors showed me all the proof.
Why was I so damn cold, why was it so hard for me to get??
I was losing you my one and only dad, with every painful breath
Roboenza 1 +Elecman+ The power plant was abuzz with activity: human workers darting to and fro to make sure the resources were powering the plant as they should, Joe-droids patrolling and guarding the power plant, and a speedy Robot Master inspecting the regulators. Elecman's blue-green eyes inspected every panel of every regulator, from the output panel to the temperature gauges. Everything had to be perfect, or it wasn't right at all. After all, he was the master of this power plant, his domain.Roboenza 1 +Elecman+3 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Slender fingers gripped around my ring. Concentrate, I told myself. I had to focus to summon a Black Hole. It didn't matter if that little blue pest had shot out one of my eyes. It didn't matter if Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Jupiter had fallen. I had to be the one to fight to avenge them, even if I wasn't a man of combat.
It was just one of my duties to Lord Terra, my brother-in-arms. No. It was my duty to Lord Sunstar. I owed this to him.

GuiltyNo one understands the mistakes I have made,Guilty10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
None comprehend my regrets.
My greatest follies lie hidden in the dark,
Too terrible to whisper.
I am a contradiction,
I have defaulted on my own standards.
Had I fallen but once,
I would have been as one innocent.
But I was a fool;
I denied to myself the truth.
Yet, even now, I cannot confess my guilt;
Even now, I cannot fully reveal my soul.
Is there but one soul on this earth
Who would understand me?
Is there but one soul on this earth
Who would love me for who I am?
I am a fool,
I am a coward,
I am lost,
I am guilty.
My heart still beats,
My soul still stirs.
What is there inside of me,
That can withstand my guilt?
It is like a fire,
Burning on inside of me.
Spurring me onward;
To be strong!
It is not for myself that this flame burns;
Else; would it not be snuffed out by my guilt?
No; I stand for another reason;
I fight for another cause.
There is still good left in me;
There is still hope in my heart.

My crimson eyes darted toward the rest of the Stardroids. I didn't need them anyway. They certainly didn't need me. I was always the outsider, it seemed. The inner numbers considered me an outsider because I was one of the outer planet numbers. The outer planet numbers always accused me of being too chummy with the inner planet numbers.
Guess they were all wrong, huh?
Not that they cared for anyone but themselves. I suppose I'm no different, though. I long for even a little of their attention. Maybe the scraps of their bread when they're obviously not going to finish it? But I guess that's too much to ask.
I made a quick, shrill noise.
Oh look, Terra's actually looking at me. Whoop.

For the day to come at last,
When I see, your face
As I lay awake, you seem so far away...
But in the dead... of night I think I hear, your voice
As I wait for you,
And I dream of you.
As I close my eyes,
It feels like your standing next to me

This moment last for a eternity
I hardly breathe.

theres a silence in our suicides
the bracelets of a pop cult

I hate you because you're leaving
Mad eye looks of a lustful loathing
a fistful of my words
a last letter of goodbye
turned red with my own blood
i held it so close
its cut me
hoping those words would never be forgotten
I hate you because I love you
if i make sense to you
selfish enough to cage you here with me
shed unseen tears for you
and wrote unwritten poems for you
wondering will you remeber me?
Like i remeber you guys?
wondering if I should have just stepped away
at the first signs of danger
instead of leeched.
unwelcome to the worlds of a new age
or old age

Two great warriors shall by chance meet on the plain of battle known as the Thumbshare Forum. They are champions of the same vein, the hit-and-fade barbarians called Smart Alecs, but they are solitary and fight for no one but themselves. A thumbnail of a Philosopher's illustration will bring the first salvo. One Smart Alec enjoys the piece in a cynical manner; the other Smart Alec seeks its prompt but humorous annihilation with a one-line Zinger of Doom, a +3 attack using 2d12.
A witticism will be fired, followed by a mighty retaliation. Lo, it will escalate and a maelstrom of Smart Alecs will blossom, growing in number b
