First to Fall Well it’s that time again, as the outside temperature gets colder and I can stand to be here no longer. I know the onslaught that devastates my kind is coming soon enough and I can’t afford to be late for my demise. Ironically, it is my turn to usher in this new era of death and decay alone. I will be the first to fall.First to Fall4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My family eagerly awaits my fall as I look around at all of them. We’re all identical to some degree, I feel. Sure, everyone around these parts are just inbred copies of each other, we all look alike in some aspects, but I guess that’s just genetics. I look around as my flesh starts to lose it’s lustrous color, fading into a dingy, dirty yellowish color. Is this what dying really felt like? I see my brothers and sisters around me, bits and parts of their bodies were already undergoing this change, but I guess I’m the unfortunate one to be the first one to have this co

Reluctantly creeping back to my room
Waking to promises of the perfect day
"Just one more kiss" was all I could say
I lay there in silence, inhaling your scent
The landlords were coming, so away you went
Those days spent living a lucid dream
Launched my new life, how different it seemed
Lying in bed, wishing to stay
The plane ride home: I cried the whole way.
Your scent on my skin lingered a while
I spent that whole day forcing a smile
Sadness and joy made my tears flow
As I gazed at the ocean, so far below
Your endless blue eyes can take me away
In just a few years, forever we'll stay
Locked in perpetual love till the end
Till the laws of society finally bend
For now we're locked in our separate cells
Temporarily living our personal hells
As I lay here in silence, I remember your scent
Still here it lingers, long after I went.
I'll love you forever, and so it shall be.
And I'll remember your face till it's all that I see.

Chapter 1: An Unintended Meeting
Silently, from the shadows of the deep forest of Hyrule, I watched the Hero. I had watched him travel, followed his every move since he returned. He unloaded the heavy pack he was carrying and leant against a nearby tree, resting under the shade of the forest canopy. Ever since he returned to Hyrule after four years of travelling the neighbouring lands of Termina, Holodrum and Labrynna, I have followed him like a shadow since Princess Zelda, that interfering fool, destroyed both his memory and his existence.
The thought of it still made me seethe with anger. She manipulated him from the very beginning, burdened him with a dangerous mission and even stole seven years of his life. Even I, who was both his guide and his friend, who taught him the warp songs and how important it was for him to succeed on his journey was used against him. She tricked him into believing that I was her alter-ego, her disguise that she used to evade the Evil King

And they are here to test us

Burden enough that we could carry
But dear GOD we are too weak
To withstand these miseries
And I know that there are people
Who are going through worse than us
I am not complaining
I am just requesting
And I am pleading to You
Ease away our pain
Turn our miseries into blessings
We are all aware
That you love Your creations
We humans are Your most beautiful creation
I know You will never turn down our prayers
You never did

Love, when you're fifteenLove, when you're fifteen9 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
We crushed ourselves together, as one, and not for the first time. We imagined and believed ourselves to be in love as much as fifteen-year-olds do, and thought that love in our hearts meant that we needed to consummate it with our bodies. So we were in my bed, pressed together, in love, in lust, happy to be alive and together.
Love, when you're fifteen, means he carries your books and sits next to you at lunch. You think you know everything and no one can prove you otherwise. Love, when you're fifteen, means he calls you when you're babysitting and that you understand when his mother makes him go to church on a Friday night. It means you forgive him when he gives a "pity kiss" to the other girl who likes him, even though you know better. Love, when you're fifteen, means going all the way.
So we did, and the first time it hurt. But after that it was fun, and we did it as often as we could get away from our parents. And I loved him, really I did, but in the back of my head I knew we wer

The struggle to suppress
These seconds of duress
Along with these moments
Longing for lost enchantments
Wishing to forget
To get lost in the net
Then this tale could fade
Slip into a dark shade
Giving us another chance

If memory was merciful
We would simply forget
And if time was remorseful
Regret and hope could offset
We could get lost in the glory
We could live another story
Without painful memory

Arme's Experimental TailPerfect! Or so I thought.Arme's Experimental Tail5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
In my hand was my recently completed project, a purple potion. It was designed to allow the one who ingested the potion to be able to blend in with their surroundings. I was inspired by a lizard I once saw that changed its own scales to blend with its environment and realized it could be useful; thus, I went to work. Sure, it would be a bit odd, but it would be very handy in battle, especially for those such as Lass and Lire, who could attack from long range. And of course, me.
The potion let off a faint, purple glow as I walked around the castle, looking for someone. Was everyone purposely avoiding me? I dispelled the thought as I spotted Ronan, though.
"Hey, Ronan, c'mere!" I called out.
"Huh?" Ronan glanced over at me, then at the potion and began to look a bit nervous. Before I could let him escape, I was next to him and thrust the potion into his hands.
"Drink this!" I told him.
"B-But-" Ronan began.
"Now!" If I had to, I would use force.

And there will come a time I won't feel this way.
Those times come, and I desperately pine for the day...
Other days, I feel myself full of strength to accept,
And I think I can go ahead without a single regret.
That is when the thought of winning sounds like a safe bet.
Most of my lift is spent somewhere in between.
Certainty and confusion split by a line that is not clean.
Masculine and feminine aspects of me intermingling.
Maybe that is why I find such beauty in androgyny.
I love the idea of being able to be anything.
It is with elegance that I could be everything.

SufferingIf one denies suffering, i.e., a greater purpose for suffering, he removes one weightthe lighter weight of the suffering itselfand in turn places the heavier burden of nothingness upon himself. All life tends towards death, nothingness.Suffering4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
And the cousins of these feelings of nothingness are skepticism, bitterness, and despair.
The one who subscribes to nothingness may not be a skeptic, bitter, or in despair, but the problem of suffering forces that one to become as such. This is because if all of life ends with a final breath, then everything between that first and last breath is judged by how happy we are. Sufferingdeep, sorrowful, lasting sufferingis a sign of the end, and approach to nothingness.
Perhaps this is why Christ says that "my yoke is easy and my burden light" (Mt 11:30). He was ridiculed, tortured, and nailed to a treeabandonedand yet he says this still?
The one who suffers may be sorrowful or may have some joy because he understands that

Brings to your mind a person,

And watch out where you go!
And that's how you know!
That drives you!

Lying all around
You creep through the corridors,
Trying to not make a sound

You could swear no-one was behind you,
But it feels like someone's there!
And that's how you know!
That drives you!
That divides you!
