All my life
I've believed in things
That weren't real.
This does not mean
They are not there.
Real is simply
A state of mind.
With a definition
That really doesn't define
Exactly what they want you to think
One might say to you
Seeing is believing.
But that means every dream I have
Is really happening to me?
Any picture I draw
The stories I write
Aren't stories at all
But simply recording history?
But then what is this
Everyone always talks about?
Is it really that great?
To talk about
All the time?
To break little children's hearts
When they're told
Santa clause is fake?
To stay chained to
For the rest of eternity?
When someone tries to escape
This so called
They're thought of
As out of line
And locked up
But if one accepts
This depressing fate
They're locked up
In their own way -
Instead of physically.
So why not
Unlock your self
From your shackles

I'm diving in.
I wish that you would see,
there's a magical land at the bottom of the ocean
where waterproof lungs let you be
everything you've dreamed.
You can bury underneath the sand
and not be found-
it's the land that's been promised to me
in late night whispers
and burnt tears
wasted on things that don't matter.
I know it's real,
broken minds can't lie
and I can feel it in my bones-
there's something more.
What other reasons would we live for?
They say you inhale saltwater
and exhale enlightenment.
The waves pour over you
and finally make you clean (pure)
No one knows where you are
so your problems don't follow
and neither does time.
It all fades away
until you disintegrate
like your worries.
You can only get there
with a heart that doesn't beat
because humans' empty brains
You need to be all the way gone
I want to go and find myself
and live the dreams I never had.
I swear, it's not that bad-

Somewhere past stroke of two
And peeking out, no wind nor rain
No summer storms had blew.
I fled to bedhis arms for strength
And shuddered 'spite the heat.
The darkness closing closer still
My face, the whiter sheet.
I shut my eyes just tight enough,
Traded his skin for yours.
Still fighting in my deepest nerve
Most damnable of wars
Against each memory, doting face
Last summer in its rune.
Dancing still in arm's embrace
To the string's last dying tune.
A rustle in the shutter panes
Somewhere past stroke of three
And peering through the foggy glare,
No trespassers to see.
A heart pledged once sparks virtue's gold
When broken, stretches thin.
A pledge reversed may recommence
To shatter from within.
All virtue hangs in dimming light
My innocence, repealed?
'Tis not unfaithful which the eyes
And ears cannot reveal.
And though the dead can kill, they may
Not live a breath again
And if they step their boundaries,
What is it we live then?

It was just your 4th day in 10th grade, and you were already hating it. Sure, the teachers and monitors were ok, but you couldn't stand 3 things-
1. The amount of homework you were already getting
2. Most of your schoolmates were either total strangers, or mortal enemies
3. The walls were yellow
Well, ok, maybe not 'Yellow-Yellow', but a Beige-ish Yellow... Either way you hated that colors' guts.
But it's not like you hated it for no reason! The color just brought back bad memories. Memories that you never wanted to remeber... And forgot to remember right now, because you were too busy being trampled by eveyone trying to get to their next class, to even remeber how to walk right.
So, you tripped. And got trampled some more.
You immediately stood up and made it to your locker without dieing! Now, all you had to do was make it through the day without starting any drama, because, just like the color yellow, you hated drama(which, by the way the one of your classes). YAY YOU

Story Part OneAs dusk fell upon Darigan Citadel, a huge floating land mass skimming the skies, Lord Kass, ruler of the Citadel, surveyed the destruction to the landlocked world below. The Second Meridell war had been raging for over a month now and the forces of Kass were dominating. Setarian, the conceited commander of his troops, had been leading Kass to victory. Ever since the previous leader Lord Darigan had vanished, the Citadel had been in chaos. That is, until Lord Kass came into power through less than honest means. The troops of Lord Kass wanted very eagerly to take revenge on Meridell- Especially King Skarl.Story Part One5 years ago in Settings More Like This
Setarian was always a prideful Eyrie. He felt superior to all of his subordinates in every regard. Many thought the Lord himself was to blame because it was he who appointed him commander of his army and constantly gave him praise. Much of the time, he demanded to be called "Commander Setarian", even at the smallest whim of his subordinates.&

"So, how do you guys celebrate Christmas on the islands?" inquired Heavyn as the four of them traversed the Lanes Between. They had just left Christmas Town, which unsurprisingly had put Heavyn in the Christmas mood.
Kairi looked over in her direction as she answered, "Well, we make cookies, sing carols, you know, the usual. Except that instead of building snow-men, we build sand-men instead."
"Sand-men? That kinda sounds like a cheesy horror movie," remarked Heavyn.
"Thank you," responded Riku. "I've been telling them that for YEARS!"
Sora laughed as he commented, "You've only been saying that ever since Wakka decapitated your sand Sant"
"Guys, look!" Heavyn suddenly cried, pointing. The others looked to see a welcome sight.
"A Fragment World!!" they all cried unanimously, speeding towards it. Stopping just short of where they suspected the barrier to be, the four friends looked at each other.

Surrounding me in your love...
Your sweet slow kiss
And melodic voice
It's everything to me
My reason to live
My reason to love
My reason to breathe...
You comfort me
Anything to bring a hot fever down
Anything to pull a broken heart together
You know just what to say...
You're my remedy
But I need to live without you
I let you go months ago
I dropped you hot before
It's time I forget you
I have him now
He's my everything
But still without you
I feel incomplete
My heart yearns for both
But I'll never break even
I want you both
But life's never been pleasing

To fight off Shadows, on a long weary night
You can't use a sword, you can't use a knife
The Creatures will come and they'll drag you away
Off into the dark where the Shadows play
The Shadows are long, spindly and dark
They play tricks on your mind, and tricks on your heart
They make you see what's not really there
Make you feel what's not yours to feel
Is that the wind or the shadows I hear?
They move along the edge of the forest
Just tempting your curiosity, tempting your faults
Just waiting for you to come inside
And when you're just in reach,
They'll grab you and drag you in
And you'll never be heard from again
I hear they sound like what you want most
That they know your heart, and they know your soul
They know what's inside your brain
And they use it against you
Making you defenseless to their half-truths
You can run but they'll always find you
They'll brake your sanity, and they'll break your mind
You never know when they'll get you
Only that they will

The word species is an understatement when comes to using that term in the same sentence as a human. You are not a species nor will you ever be considered one. You see every species on the face of this planet creates an equilibrium in their natural ecosystem, along side other species, call it a harmony but you humans do not work that way. When you arrive in an ecosystem you begin to leech of the natural resources, you procreate faster then the rest of species around you. Eventually you upset the balance so much that other species are forced to move away or die by your hands. What is worse is that ecosystem is left a wasteland because you humans do not give it time to regenerate. So nothing can live or survive there any longer. When this occurs, you humans then move onto other ecosystems and do the exact same by taking everything around you, draining the ecosystem to its core, killing it with out ever giving back and yet you kill what stands in your way.

The past few months had been a whole new kind of hell for him; people had begun to change right before him, and were either incredibly sick, or just plain losing their damn minds. He couldn't figure what. But, either way he looked at it, he knew he had to find a way to stay alive.
And these three 'dim-wits', as he called them, he stumbled upon were the only ones who seemed to be good at that.
Two guys and a girl, he noted, when he first ran into them at that dingy hotel.
He had been staying there to avoid some heat from an angry biker who lost a game of pool to him, but ended running into the man face to face. But, for being 'face to face', that biker fellow was missing most of his. He was coming down on the conman, mouth oozing, but the back of his head got blown off, right in front him. The brain chunks splattered on his suit, and cursed aloud.
