Chocolate Spice Muffins
2 c flour
3 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1 T ground nutmeg
¼ t salt
1 ½ T cinnamon
1 t cayenne
2 T cocoa mix
1 T cloves
Whisk in one at a time:
2 large eggs
1 c milk
¼ c melted butter
2 T chocolate syrup
2 T molasses
Mix the wet into the dry until everything is wet, but don't over mix! That would be tragic. Bake at 375º for 15 to 20 min. A tip on preheating- once your oven beeps, wait another ten minutes or so. The oven hasn't really got enough ambient air temperature when it first beeps.
Here too is the sauce you see over the top. It actually tastes better when put into the middle of the muffin, but it looks better in the photo the way you see it.
Whisk together until slightly thick cream is reached. I had the vary basic idea of clotted cream (slightly) in mind when I made this:
¼ c whipping cream
½ c plain yoghurt
1 spoon full instant coffee
1 spoon full cocoa powder
Sugar (to taste)

Morgan - LoveParties were always exciting, as Morgan didn't often attend them. Something new would occur each time her friends would drag her to one, whether it be a fight or a new couple making out on the couch, or Jack cheating on Stacey. Those always seemed to be the most popular-- seeing who was cheating on who.Morgan - Love3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"You're lucky you don't have a boyfriend, Morgan," Sharice laughed, sitting at the kitchen table of some guy's house, drinks and food spread out in front of them.
Morgan had just turned sixteen. She was a tall girl, with thick hips and long legs, black hair styled like a bob. Her eyes were large and green, skin pale and white. She was a bit awkward and shy, but enjoyed having fun with people she knew-- Sharice wasn't exactly her best friend, but the two had started talking because they had almost all of their classes together and found they had common interests.
"Why do you say that?" Morgan murmured, continuously picking up pretzels and nibbling at them. The salty taste was starting to
Morgan - CouchThe couch was hard beneath her, uncomfortable in every sense of the wordthis is why Morgan should have never been allowed to shop for the furniture and décor in her apartment. The black-haired beauty wasn't the least bit ditzy, but she wasn't exactly a girly woman either. Her extent of knowledge with the furnishings in her home was that the colors should match so she wound up with this stupid brown couch to match her stupid brown walls. That was the last time she'd ever go to Home Depot and let one of those commission people get near hershe just knew that Timothy would get on her case when he came home from work. She disregarded the thought and lit a cigarette, placing it between her lips and taking a long drag.Morgan - Couch3 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Arina turned slowly, to face the man who she had been walking beside, the man she gave her heart to; the man she loved.
"Got a secret...can you keep it?"
Ash stopped, and turned all the same, to face the much smaller hunter. "Well-"
"Swear this one you'll save. Better lock it, in your pocket..." Arina looked down, her hair covering over her eyes. Ash watched, confused, but listening to the words that were being handed to him.
Arina immediately looked back up, and into his eyes-
"Taking this one to the grave...If I show you, then I know you, wont tell what I said..."
Ash held his breath.
Arina smirked, "Cause two can keep a secret. If one of them is dead." she let one of her hands grab Ash's. Ash flinched, let out a nervous chuckle, nodded his head and they continued on their walk.
"Y-you can tell me..."
Aldous grinned, the smile plastered across his face crookedly. He flicked his eyes around the room, then blinked and looked to Arina, who had her eyes narrowed at him darkly.

I hear it pouring down
Yes, I hear the rain
It makes me remember that nothing is in vain
The beautiful sound of water
Plays deep in my veins
And I know for those seconds
That I'm meant to be, here where I am
Rain runs down my cheeks
This rain is salty
But yet filled with happiness
And the pure emotion of wonder
The rain on the windows
The rain on my cheeks
Makes me feel whole and makes me feel me

Honestly you thought this idea of a new year new you was stupid.
You knew what it would be like back at school, bullied, lonely and horrible. What will make things better? Nothing.
You was walking to school, headphones in so you didn't hear any sly remarks about you from the other students.
As you walked into school you went straight to the class board to see what class you were in, you finally found your name..
3B..great. Same class with probably the same people.
You walk there slowly, hating the fact that this year will be the same as last and the last year before that.
Looking at the seating arrangements you notice someone new sitting next to you.
Maybe something good will happen this year? Just maybe.
Sitting at your assigned seat you wait to see who this new person is, maybe it's a girl? You could be best friends. She wouldn't know anything about you, she'll see p

Gallant has a strong sense of loyalty and cares deeply about those who earn her trust. She acts older than she is, in that she acts protectively over those she trusts, almost motherly sometimes. She thinks of her friendships like her contracts; something to be followed to the letter. If she was working or doing something with a group of people she trusted, she would do exactly as she was told (to an extent; when not ordered to do so under contract, she would not breach her own moral code. E.g. if someone she trusted told her to kill someone she considered an innocent, she wouldn't; however if this was part of a contract, she would do so. When not under contract and acting alone she keeps to her own moral code; this helps her feel secure that whilst she may do imm

Play with it.
Then throw it.
I don't need it,not without you.
I am cold,dead when you're away.
You might as well break the son of a bitch into two.
I told you,stay away from me.
I am pure sin,I bathe in others pain.
But look what happens when a sin meets the Devil,
Dancing in the dark,kissing in the rain.
I never knew there could be someone,
Someone as sinful as me.
My darkness,your touch has enchanted my soul.
And now,you're calling me your queen.
But what are we,my love?
Just a couple of mortals gone to the bad?
In the end,we are all humans
Without many words left to be said.
So here's my heart,on the silver plate.
I kept my lips silent,my body was in your arms.
I am falling,I know this is hell,
But promise me I'll be your lucky charm.
I need to be your other part,
The one I am,the one brighter than your moon,
The pretty face you kiss in the mornings,
Love,you made me trust you.

MY LITTLE POEM
Ponies with Tristania
[Click here for the accompanying song]
Pastries left marred
Candlelit the night
For a party of lone reject
Her treats denied
Dismissed behind her back
They left her out
Upset she lies, caters the fest
Abandoned she feasts
They liked her, enjoyed her games and plays
Like leper now
Those backstabbers, liars,
Cowards, avoid her
Alone you're left
alone you're left alone you're left
alone you're left alone you're left
"Why won't they care without my friends I've nothing left "
Alone you're left you empty soul alone you're left you worthless soul
To fill the emptiness
She feigns the pain inside
Aching heart caters the fest
With puppet plays
Abandoned she feasts
Now castaway escape

It's not like she was accomplishing anything by hanging around anyways. She was an average girl, who had average looks, and average friends. She got average marks, and had an average family. Her boyfriend was an average person, with average friends, and their friends were average too. It was all so boring, and tedious. She hated all of it. Even her boyfriend. She just couldn't care enough to break up with him.
She felt like a zombie. She smiled and laughed automatically at jokes, and did her work during class. She went out with her friends and pretended to have fun. She went on dates with her boyfriend, and pretended to enjoy it. She was just pretending. Insid

When feelings override my thinking
I am lost
There are no words to describe it, yet not enough in the dictionary
The caricature of the moment rises and then dissipates
Maybe a song will help
Maybe a song will soothe
Play me a soothing song
Play me anything but that!
Didn't I ask for a soothing...never mind
I am lost
There goes my emotions again
I sigh and lie back into my sorrow
I do not care to rhyme with my words
The poem that I coin cannot dispel these feelings
No matter how hard I try
I watch an emotional movie while eating comfort food
...which brings none at all
I feel worse
The tears pour down and then I wish I had just read a book
But only to be frustrated of my own pain
Now I'm rhyming
No one listens, only chastens
Like the one who bore me
A woman baring a woman...
Who could figure that? My thinking's flat
I only want to listen to soothing music, while I am listening
to everything else but!
