It takes more strength to love than hurt
It takes more strength to save than destroy
It takes more strength to rebuild than collapse
It takes more strength to fight than give in
I know how stubborn you are though so, before you go; answer me a question, heart to heart, to your friend?
I remember one of the strongest people in my life but, maybe it is I who is distorted.
Did I befriend a coward?

The world is frozen, society's broken. It's a token, cutting up my lungs, leaving me breathless. What if I can't restore this I world I've destroyed? My minds in shambles, everything's so scrambled. Why do I have to be the knight in shining armor? Protecting my "masters" like a sick, pathetic guard dog.
My bruising's confusing, losing my sight of reality. They say that I'm free when truly I'm trapped by a malevolently minded creature. It creeps in the cracks of my mirror, that images a preacher, I'm trapped within this endless hall, there's no way out yet, I walk along, to no ava

"Well there goes that idea. Gotta go!"
I knew that voice by heart. Amy Rose. Why can't she ever leave me alone! I didn't want to exhaust myself so, I let up on the race. If I tried though, she wouldn't have stood a chance. After all, I'm only the fastest thing alive!
"What is it Amy?"
"Hey! Sonic! Guess what?"
"I just met this really cool guy!"
"Who?!" I stood up defensively as I said this. Amy can't be trusted around anyone, she's too trusting. I'd have to make sure they were okay first before letting anyone in.
"His name's Shadow! He's got smooth black and red skin and red eyes and-Sonic? Sonic? SONIC!"
I was already gone before she'd finished. Actually, long before she finished. I knew
that'd get her mad but, she'd get over it. I know that she can't stay mad at me. I don't think anyone could stay mad at me besides Eggman.
I sped around town asking for a Shadow until I found him. He was an impressive looking he
My Best FriendYou're strong and although everything you know seems to go wrong. I will always be there by your side and from me; you will never have to hide. Through your eyes you see a world of everything I despise. As I've watched you tear up and breakdown in disguise, the disguise of perfection, I want to show you your reflection. For too long I've watched cry yourself to sleep at night, I think it's time to finally fuss and fight. I may not be the strongest to ever try but I'll never waver from your side and I wish I could confide that for every last tear you shed, in speeds another dome of lead, leaving with the red of those who have brought you dread but, that would be lie and I in place of that I'd rather die. I hate seeing you in the blues and your sadness is a sight I rue because, you're the best friend I could ever ask for and for a friend I've never asked.

"Oh, he's sooo dreamy..."
The speech lingered, echoing in my ears... She's really into me, isn't she? Focus, man, Shadow. Let's see... I lost him along the tracks. Where could he have been headed? I think I'll go talk to Knuckles, see if he knows anything.
I walked in to find Knuckles asleep. I decided to try calling him.
"Hey! Knuckles? Yo, Knuckles, wake up!"
After a few more failed attempts, I turned on the light, and heightened the intensity.
"Calm down, Knuckles, It's me. And I assure you, I have no interest in your grapes."
"Oh, it's only you Sonic Do me a favor, and turn that light down?"
I dimmed the light and Knuckles sat up.
"So, what's up Sonic?"
"By any chance, do you know a Shadow?"
"Shadow The Hedgehog, black with red stripes?"
"I know him"
"Huh," we both questioned, looking for the voice.
"Over here boys!"
"Rouge! How'd you get in here?!"

Bleed OutTrust is like a mirror.Bleed Out3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Once it's broken
It will NEVER be perfect
It will never be as beautiful as it once was...
And if you try to fix it
You'll just sit there in a pool of blood, tears, and fears
Trying to repair a broken dream
Until that moment when you bleed out
Lying in the ashes of a love long lost and gone
A life wasted on nothingness

It's such an amazing place
A beautiful place
We've made it so far
We've accomplished so much
We have peace
We haven't done a damned thing
There's still racism
There's still dictatorship
There's still control
There's still hate
There's still murder
There's still rape
"Our World", is slowly being destroyed
We're being controlled
Formed like a piece of clay and puppeteer-ed to believe it
That it's all fine
And when something goes wrong
When someone stands up
They're a low-life rebel
When they're the light
The one who broke free
Broke the shackles of time
The bounds of freedom
Why can't you see?
Come with me
I can set you free
We can all stand up
And fight our masters
Step out of your little fucking bubble of ignorance
And let me show you

I closed my eyes ready to die. I knew no one could stop him now. Especially not Amy, or Rouge, in the little time I had left. This was it. The scene sounded hectic. Everyone was shouting all at once, as was I. The opposing hedgehog seemed not to have attacked. I opened my eyes slowly, cautiously, to find Knuckles with a hand held out to me.
"Need a hand?"
I let Knuckles help me up but, I only had one thing on my mind as I did so. I turned to Amy. She was crying. I ran over to her and kneeled in front of the pink hedgehog. I hugged her but, she shoved me away.
"Just leave me alone Shadow."
Amy looked up, still unaware who she was speaking with. When she realized who I was, she gave me the tightest hug she'd ever given me. Normally, it'd be painful but, I was so happy I didn't feel it. Her mood quickly changed though. Amy once again pushed me a

What a time well spent.
The meaning of life is simply death,
Not survival, self-realization, or sex.
We need to understand that life is temporary,
If we don't, then we are nothing but caged canaries.

How was I going to tell my friend and Amy I was leaving.
They would be devastated.
As this thought came into my mind I opened my eyes and looked at the ground below growing closer and closer as I picked up speed.
I thought of what would happen if I died.
If i didn't land safely on the ground...If I hit the ground full force.
The innocent people of the city,my friends and Amy would never be threatened again.
And that's what being a hero was all about wasn't it?
Sacrificing yourself to save the lives of the innocent.
But then again,I thought,no one would be around to make sure Eggman kept his promise of not harming Amy.
...So I couldn't plummet myself into the ground.
But...if I could make it seem like I was dead...then my friends would be safe...and I will still be able to keep an eye on Eggman in case he double crossed me!
Just before smashing into the ground I landed on my feet.
I had made up my mind...I was to fake my own d

In honesty, I think about you almost every single day

Intruding into my thoughts like a virus
I've tried to tell myself every other possibility I possibly

All have failed in my mind except for one more left
The one I gravely feared the most
I don't want to believe it, but
I think I love you.

It was a cold day in December and Chairman Comrade-For-Life Barrack Hussein Adolf Stalin-Obama was in the Red House (Formerly the White House) sitting on his throne made of pony skeletons eating live Christian babies with Dijon mustard. All of a sudden, two jackbooted fascists in Soviet-style communist uniforms marched in and saluted the giant framed painting of Karl Marx high-fiving the Prophet Mohammed that the President commissioned with money he illegally stole from hardworking Christian Americans ( Author’s Note: This passage is a subtle reference to the unconstitutional Federal Income Tax which the founding fathers never approved of. Taxation is the first step to Communism, see Atlas Shrugged for further truth on this subject.)

A broken memory
Torn at the seams

Sonic awoke, confused at where he was. There was something humming; sounding like the low growl of an engine. Sonic sat up a bit but found that it made him dizzy to do so, making him lay a back down. After a few minutes, he tried to sit up again (much slower this time) and his efforts were awarded with the fact that he didn't become dizzy. His head turned side to side, letting him take in his surroundings. Where am I, Sonic thought, still looking around.
"You're on my ship of course." Eggman stepped out of the shadows. In his hand he held what looked like a controller for a remote control car and in his other hand there was a small microchip that gave out an immense amount of negative energy for its size. "Don't worry; I'm not here to kill you." Eggman said, noticing Sonic's questioning and slightly worried look. "I'm actually here to replace that chip in your arm."
"Chip; you mean like a microchip?" Sonic inquired, loo

A Tribute to Al Bundy
There once was a man
Who sold only shoes
But his life would be filled
With a permanent case of the blues
His name was Al Bundy
A great athlete in high school
Not the smartest guy around
But certainly no fool
He had many achievements
4 touchdowns in 1 game
He had it all coming towards him
Women, fortune and fame
But little did he know
He only had so much luck
Something would come around the corner
Then Al would be fuc-
Peg Wanker was her name
A fruit from the south
Gigantic red hair
And a rather noisy mouth
Regardless of all that
She caught Als eye
And soon Als good life
Was just about to die
The high school sweethearts
Decided to get married
And it was then decided
Als life had been buried
Suddenly it all happened
Against Als will
But Pegs father was there
Hammered and ready to kill
Bad things would happen
If Al didnt marry the daughter
Among those terrible things
They all involved slaughter
And so it was finished
