Love Is Blind
Love doesn't look at black or white
For those are only colors
Love doesn't look at 25 or 30
For age is only a number
Love doesn't look at rich or poor
For money is only paper
Love doesn't look at faults only perfections
For in the eyes of loved one everything is good
When you love someone you love them for what's inside
Not because they're black or white, not because they're you age not because they're rich, but because of what's inside
Love is blind to everything but what you love them for
Never again will I trust someone without reason
Or count on soeone who will not be there
Never again will I give away my heart
And let it be broken by a nameless wonder
Never again will I let my dreams carry me away
To a world beyond reality
Never again willI let soeone get to know me inside and out
But hide myself from everyone
Never again will anyone see me for someone else
But they will see me for me
Never again will i be judged for what I'm not

Character Name: Celty/Certy Sterluson
Occupation/Status: Vigilante, foreigner/Ikebukuro resident
Description [Headcanon]: Celty Sterluson is a Dullahan, who has been searching for her missing head for many years. She is very determined and won't quit until she finds it. Although she isn't human, she is able to portray emotions, such as when Shinra tells her that she should just give up on finding her head, which results in her feeling very strongly against it and storming off. She also isn't completely heartless, because she ended up saving Rio Kamichika from killing herself. She lives with Shinra Kishitani, and has been working as a deliverer for certain people, like Izaya. She is known throughout the city as the "The Black Rider" or "The Headless Rider" but few people know who she truly is.
Celty had just finished a job for Izaya and was just about to call it a day, but then looked at the time, and it turned out that s

it's so fucked up because
I walk around
and I don't even know how
because my bones are gone.
I think I've been reduced
to a pile on the floor.
Look over that way,
do you see me
folded up in the corner?
laugh, laugh, laugh
Really, it's all just funny
even though it isn't.
I'm cracking up and melting down
and freaking out
and I'm laughing all the while.
And then I'm crying.
Look over that way,
do you see me caving in?
cry, cry, cry
and I don't even know why.
The Dance of the Shadow BirdThe shadow bird soars across the tilesThe Dance of the Shadow Bird4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And dives along the cobbles
A free run in a freedom-less city
Where even now
Hunters seek to clip his wings.
Warrants for the immediate, indeterminate,
Of thus joyous pestilence
This disease named freedom.
It’s been five years now
Five years since they outlawed freedom
On the grounds that it was the number one cause
Of spontaneous, enthusiastic entropy
And that it was all for the greater good.
Terracotta cracks and shatters
Under pounding soles
Heart drumming like a humming bird
The shadow flits from roof to roof
Longing to take full flight.
Revolution sparkled, flared
Only to burn out as fast as it appeared
The world vaccinated
A swift needle to end it all
Rebellion shots on every corner.
The first amendment of many
You have the right to
Say what we tell you to say
Do what we tell you to do
Freedom to comply.
But he does not comply
He has broken the bird cage
He rises on the thermals of freedom
And in his skyward spirit

You know, his kisses...
Shut up you stupid idiot, he never loved you!
I know it's true but I can't help it
the way he moved his lips with mine was just perfect
Shut up! Shut up! Ugh!
I felt safe in his big arms
tucked away from all harm
You gotta be kidding me, shut up already!
I really mean my words;
the few times he was nice
I'd became his world
Most of the time he was an asshole, shut up!
You don't know him like I do
he made me felt good
with his laughter ringing in my ears
Just shut up, you know he played you!
Maybe I don't care if he did
it was worth it...
Fucking blind fool, shut the hell up!

I am a soundless mourning dove
I am the weeping rain

you have mapped me with scars
that bloom like lilies
that unfold like winged petals under

the sorrowful catchfly of my skin

Will you kiss me full of blackness?
My love, my own, my fluttering bat
my falsely judged spider
the one whose shadow I see against the orange harvest moon
the one with her slender legs
Black Anansi, her nature's dance,
will you sing in the voice of trees
that solemn withering of leaves?
Though your skin is a river dark
the dodging shadows of the forest
the faerie things that sprint from the nighttime star,
I wish your darkness to be mine
for yours is out and mine is in

The sunlight pushed itself through the few clouds, sprinkling the Destiny Islands with drops of heavenly light. A boy and a girl, both 15, sat in the sand on the beach, watching the waves glow in the Sun's glistening rays. The boy's dark brown hair bore blonde tints when the Sun reflected upon him, and the girl's soft red hair blew gently in the warm summer breeze. The two looked at each other with soft smiles and their conversation began.
"Sora?" The little girl blinked.
"Yeah, Kairi?" The little boy's voice was gentle.
"If you ever have to leave this place again, can I come with you?" Kairi asked hopefully.
Sora furrowed his eyebrows, studying her question.
"Well, I've never really thought about leaving again."
"Of course not Kairi,"Sora paused for a moment,"unless the other worlds were in touble again...then I'd have to go,"he thought for a moment again before continuing,"but, honestly, I don't think I'm going anywere." He turned to sm

Someone to stay with me, as we spend eternity together
I always hoped that I would have, someone to call mine
To hold tightly in my arms, away from the sunshine
My lonliness always used to cut me like a knife
But suddenly that all changed; when you came into my unlife
I've never been happier, than I do right now
And my love and devotion to you I will vow
You make my long dead heart warm and start to pound
I swoon and sigh in awe at your sweet sound.
The time has come for you to become my beloved mate
For you I feel so much love, for so long I only ever knew hate
So feed from me; give me your lust filled bite
So we can walk hand in hand forever into the night.
All these things like love to me are all so new
But now I'm no longer lonely, seras ..and its all because of you.

Delicate, but strong.
Love is a power,
That can't be used wrong.

A beautiful sight.
Love is you,
You are my light.
She Doesn't KnowShe runs to himShe Doesn't Know4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And not to me
Her hair flowing in the wind
Her smile raising her cheekbones
He doesn't deserve her
He doesn't love her
But I do
I love her
She speaks to me as a friend
Because she does'nt know
And she doesn't know we could be more
Oh, the things I would do with her
The things I would say
They remain unsaid
I wish I could tell her
My promises I will not break
Yet she runs to him
And not me
He envelops her in his arms
And whispers poetry not of his own
He doesn't love her
But I do
He calls her "babe"
That is not a word you say to the one you love
Nor is "sexy"
She is NOT sexy
She is a beautiful creature sent from the gods
But she doesn't know
And she stays with him
He who doesn't love her
And I have to watch her fall

Tyler blinked up at Luke, dumbfounded. Nadia could say the same for herself, but she was beet red and he was a drained white. Paul, on the other hand, wasn't the least bit surprised, in fact he watched Luke with an air of respect. The silence that followed was thick and awkward. Nadia's boyfriend opened his mouth to speak but, found no words. He turned to Paul, as if looking for help.
Paul shrugged, and then crossed his arms, "He's right, you've been selfish."
Tyler's eyes widened, like a hurt child, "But-but, life is so hard for me for us Paul "
A fist cracked down on the table with a deafening bang, Luke had found his fire, "Grow up, Tyler! She's in love with you! But you know that, don't you?

But this time,
Everything's in perfect order.
Standing before me now,
Is a perfectly imperfect stranger.

But even my sorrows have left me be.
What ashes can remain of this mortal self?
When flames of guilt incinerate all the curtains of truth.
Awake have been my existence,
Since eternity stole the sky above me.
Now I am only a shadow staring at myself;
Staring at myself through the eyes of the night.
Even the rains deny to bathe my soul,
Their tears are meant for the pure.
I speak to what remains of my memories;
A flickering light in the gloom of a distant storm.
Those days of you now come flooding in.
When in the corner you sat,
Holding a part of me inside you.
Your emptiness, it was where I belonged.
I was drifting, into your world of silence.
Engulfed in your tranquility, I was being reborn.
All the faces that I proudly wore, I have burnt them all down.
No more was I left familiar.
No more did I even care.
All the noises inside me ceased.
I was calm; I could hear the whispers,
In every corner, in every aisle;
The candles burned.

i admit, it took me a few seconds to remember
all the words to the song you played on repeat in
your car, the one you couldn’t sing with open eyes.
the music used to come so easily to me,
but when i saw you today, i could only remember
the chorus, and it stuttered its way through my head
over and over again. for the life of me, i don’t know
what comes next.
i have spent years picking up the pieces of you
that you left behind, years spent memorizing
the echo of your heartbeat and the rhythm of
your breaths. your favorite color is purple.
you like sunflowers, autumn, and the creek
that flows behind your house. you like movies
and popcorn, you like ferris wheels and candy apples.
you love your mother and miss your father. you’re
afraid of alcohol and terrified of yourself. there
was a point in my life when i thought maybe i’d
be able to grow old next to you.
i know it’s stupid, but i’m afraid of not knowing
Don't Be Like Me: The Five Reasons WhyHello.Don't Be Like Me: The Five Reasons Why9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
My name is Rachel for those whom may not know.
And I am here to tell you about myself.
The first thing is that I don't like myself.
Well, my body, to be precise.
My hair is too brown and bland, never long enough for my preference and always tangled.
My nose too big, my eyelashes too long, my eyes too green.
I'm too short, my nails too chipped, my lips too chapped.
The second thing I don't like is my personality.
I am far too shy in front of strangers.
I am far too loud in front of friends.
I say the wrong things and come off as insensitive.
I don't say anything and come off as uncaring.
So I'm stuck with being completely sarcastic, so I can easily say:
"Of course I didn't mean it."
The third thing I don't like is my mentality.
I am technically smarter than most, my IQ higher than average.
I can read faster and comprehend more than most teenagers should.
I think creatively, not analytically.
Which translates to my fourth thing.
I don't like my social skills, if I have any.

My once pure, white wings began to turn,
rotted by his touch, they started to blacken,
My soul along with them,
Holey with the disease caused by him,
My mind deterating to the darkness,
Saught ways to ends it's pain,
Till my savior arrivied,
With her healing wings of white,
She showed me a different world,
One of happiness and laughter,
She bestowed upon me three gifts,
Hope, happiness, and friendship,
Of which I hope to return in kind.

Chapter 5: Dancing with Donghae
[JENNA'S POINT OF VIEW]
I ran my hands through my hair as I looked through my suitcase for some sweats. I wondered how many schedules were going to suddenly change like this one had.
I only had twenty-three more minutes to get to the dance studio. At the last second, I found something to wear. I pulled my hair into a ponytail and rushed over to Michelle's to ask if I could borrow a sports bottle and a duffle bag.
"Kamsahamnida!" I said and bowed.
She raised an eyebrow at me.
"Oh sorry! I don't have to be polite to you!" I said as I waved my hand and ran off.
"Ahaha! Don't fall down now!" she called after me.
By the time I got off the bus, I only had four minutes left to find the studio.
"Jenna, where are you going?" a voice asked calmly as I frantically made my way down the street.
I stopped running and took two steps back. "Donghae-sshi?" I said.
He was wearing sunglasses and leaning against a car with his arms folded.
