LegacyWe always were asking questionsLegacy5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Wondering why this would happen
Hoping things would change
You never asked; you accepted
You never wondered; you just knew
You didn't just hope; you changed things
And we were changed by you
We learned things we never would've known
Had you never existed
You taught us to embrace the moment
To accept the past
To make now better
And always believe that tomorrow could be great.
You lived each day to the fullest
While we waited around for life to happen
You made life happen
You never waited
Why did you go?
It was time to go
You knew that
And yet we always knew
That we would always remember
And refuse to let people forget
You happened for a reason
So now can become better
And tomorrow can become great.

melancholy dripping from her eyes
to her lips, leaving salty trails
on her pale cheeks
She wanders through a whirling fog
tormented by shadows
of things never there
things that will never come
to break through the misty grey,
to stop the whirling in her mind
the flooding in her eyes
She speaks in sighs
of evaporated hopes,
of disintegrating dreams
She walks hand in hand
the two so intertwined,
there is no room in her heart
the cold so permeating
warmth is simply kept away

I've told you every one
and yes, you're marvelous at denial,
I love you anyway [I think]?
You've watched me drop
and watched me climb,
I told you that I've never felt fine
and yet I know it's just
way too hard
to be okay with the life I've lived;
see, it's not yours it's mine.
I can reassure you that I'm
giving up on time-
you keep me here.
Am I allowed to hate you
Bleach- SunburnedPeople go to the beach for several reasons: to take a swim in the ocean; to play some beach volleyball; to party all night long; to take romantic walks along the shore at sunsetBleach- Sunburned4 years ago in Romance More Like This
And most people can do all these things because they know to protect themselves from the dangers of the beach. One such danger? Forgetting to put on sunscreen, then falling asleep out in the hot sun wearing only swim trunks. You'd have to be one of two things to do something this monumentally stupid:
1. An idiot.
2. Ichigo Kurosaki
And according to the latter's rather bemused girlfriend, Rukia Kuchiki, the two were not mutually exclusive.
"You know, I highly doubt your cracks at my expense are going to make my sunburn go away any faster," Ichigo muttered after awhile.
Rukia frowned as she squirted some more aloe vera onto her hand. Ichigo visibly winced when he felt her touch his stomach and very gently rub the cool substance into his beet red skin.
Talk About FreedomShe lightly taps her fingers down your spine and tells you she can count the vertebrae. One, Two, Three... the numbers are exact and her knowledge of every line is exact, and yet the only thing you'll ever know is that the numbers aren't exactly what you wanted. Want. Your standard of perfection changes every day, and she cries about that, cries because she knows where this will end. You trace your ribcage and admire the sharpness of the edges, telling her that someday, the bone will cut you free from yourself. Your body. Your insecurities, your fears.Talk About Freedom4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
You're so sure.
She massages nonexistent muscle and notices exactly how deadly you are to yourself, how breakable you look and feel and act. She notices the slimness of your shoulders and the hinging elbows and how it's possible to see the bones in your wrists twist as you move. And you admire it, while she flinches at your every sign of perceived perfection. You explain that weightlessness isn't only achieved in space; and you'll someda
Beautiful, Wonderful EyesI go to your home, the moon shines brightly above. It is peaceful, but something horrible has happened to your sweetheart.

Moonlight plays off of them, turning them to a shimmering silver. I smile lovingly, nearly forgetting why I had come.Beautiful, Wonderful Eyes5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Beautiful eyes, what have they seen to make them so beautiful?
Your gentle voice breaks my thoughts. Instantly, I remember what had brought me to your doorstep this late at night. You question my presence, but you don't seem bothered by it. I try to tell you, but the words fail to come. I don't wish to carry this burden, but you need to know. I can't let you know though, in fear those beautiful eyes will become hollow. They flicker with curiousity, though your smile remains.
Wonderful eyes, what have they dreamed to make them so wonderful?

Ghost HuntTwo children, same of birth, wandered the halls.Ghost Hunt3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A sister and a brother
With hearts and heads at the ready in the suffocating silence.
The aging mansion seemed to moan in pain.
The ghosts it sheltered were being slaughtered by the children.
And the mansion mourned their absence.
One spirit remained; the favorite of the house.
A playful little girl was she,
her body was scarred by her own doing
Driven by madness, despair and boredom.
But no more.
She, who only wanted a friend, found not one;
What will they play?
Her favorite; hide and seek.
She hurried to hide.
The twins took only a glance to plan their next move.
Only one ghost remained. That would change.
Finding her in the closet she hid in, the twins had her cornered.
With no where to run.
She greeted them with a smile.
They greeted her with Hell.
And the house was silent, the halls were empty, once again.

Plaything for the maddened mind.
I am a child of all that is wrong in the world.
I stole from the dead and made them mine....
I'm your puppet, dear.
Hangman's ropes guiding my way.
These stitches hide something,
Something tearing at the seams.
In me, whose heart is beating?
Where have these hands been?
What have these eyes seen?
Can I recollect their memories of flesh?
Is my soul a patchwork reflection of my body?
Where is the me under this?
When this puppet no longer dances...
...where will I be?
A Day in The Life of a TransgenderWhat does everyone think when they take off their clothes?A Day in The Life of a Transgender3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
When they take a shower or get dressed every day?
What do you feel?
Do you want to be able to take a zipper and zip off your top layered body like in cartoons?
Do you sit in your bed crying refusing to look in a mirror?
To those who still don't know what I'm trying to get at:
Stop right now and think.
Think of who you are.
Name everything that makes you you.
Now picture everything that makes you who you are and change it to the polar opposite.
Yes, even gender and sex.
Boys, look into a mirror and imagine you have DD breasts.
Girls, look into a mirror and imagine you have no boobs, but are growing a beard.
Think of how turned upside down your life would be.
All the medical procedures, mental torture, bullying, the wrong kind of puberty.
For me, I have to tape down my breasts and wear tight spandex to hide my curves.
And worst of all I have to wake up every morning and take a shower looking the way I do.
My school is all girls,

Once she said it, I was changed. My view of myself as the artisan type - writing out tomes in a coffee shop shifted to that of a builder. A Lego warrior. I didn't trip over my feet and find a sentence snaking between my ankles! They were built. Formulated for maximal effect. Like a great mosaic in blood and mustard and cream. I am a builder.
If only I could learn how to remove scaffolding.

And I will love you
I will love you temporarily
Or at least
I will love you
For as long as it takes
For me to hit the ground.
Because I will fall,
It is inevitable.
We all die at some point or another,
So don't reach for me
My five-foot distance away from the edge
Is just enough
To keep you alive.
But not really
Because I really do love you.
Felarya- Humans- A fairy snack and Betrayal [Vore]Perfect. If Sorcha could describe her whole life in one word, like it was just in this one specific moment, she would have called it perfect. Right now the young woman with the short hair was sitting on a giant mushroom and was thinking about the meaning of life, no, the meaning of existence. Sorcha had found this meaning after all; it was clear and simple but at the same moment it was huge for her: Pleasing a giant naga called Vivian and do whatever she would ask her.Felarya- Humans- A fairy snack and Betrayal [Vore]2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

So soft, yet serious at the same time.
Almost as if you are looking at every detail of me.
Enough to make me actually look at how I look.
Making me feel worried, of how I am to you.

Makes me feel happy.
I can't really explain to you how I feel about you.
But all I know.
I wish I could actually talk to you more...

She moved through the forest silently, her bright blue eyes taking in any change of her surroundings. He was close, she was sure of it. She licked her lips slowly, approaching a tree that definitely looked suspicious to her. Her serpentine body coiled up on itself, then swung around the tree, ready to pin him.
Surprise attack from above! She looked up as she saw him leap from a high branch out of glancing range, and she let out a squeak when he landed on her shoulder, sheathed sword poking her neck.

I may have taken

Just the other

And dust with

But then again
I may have
A roaring puddle
With kingdoms on shore.
I may have
Danced a dozen times
Across crystal halls
In elegant balls.
I could have
Raised a dinosaur
On bones and say he
Followed me home.
Perhaps I flew
Across a starscape
Endless in all directions
Sailing true forever.
It was just
A short walk
But it was not
It was so much more.

“Some of us are gifted, little one, you know?” the voice of the old woman with her deep bass echoed within her own ears. Her friendly and wrinkled face looked down at the girl, sitting on her lap, the white hair was falling down her neck and with her right she held both of the girls hands.
“Why is that so, Shama Darla?” two deep blue eyes were looking at the old woman in a curious way. The girl on her lap was not older than seven years, but her curled hair already went down till her hips.
“Because some of us are not just kissed by the elements, but also blessed by the moon. These people are rare among us, nobody knows the reason for this, it's just known. Those are gifted but also cursed as well in some way.” for a moment the eyes of the old woman seemed to feel heavy but she managed to keep up the smile.

The open field was covered in thick green grass and flowers whose bright colors invited many different types of insects to a buffet of nectar. Normally, at this time of the day, the field was also populated by a herd of Durkers, a dog-sized species of very agile herbivores, but not this day. Durkers were perfectly adapted to this open environment; their good eyesight and hearing quickly alerting them to the presence of any predator and their extremely agile bodies could easily outrun them long before they were in any real danger. They could not outrun giant predators, though. The only way to escape them was to hide among the trees and bushes at the edge of the field, where the herd also spent its nights. This was where the herd of Durkers now remained, even though it was almost noon, uncertain of whether it was safe to proceed out into the open or not.
For in the middle of the field lay a creature many tho

In the middle of this natural beauty you could find a village that had the name “Noyenai”, a haven of culture and beauty, small but worth a visit all the time. Of course it could never be compared to our modern-cities, this place seemed to be stuck in the time of Renaissance, when everything was a little more … beautiful. There were maybe fifty houses built around the central place were two things of importance were: a well were the villagers could get fresh water and another house; but this wasn't just some house.

Just from the outside the building looked majestic and for the following days the entrance of this ancient complex was her new “home”, while she waited to become the student of an old man who should teach her how to fight, how to become someone who would be able to protect the weak and helpless - to become her own redemption.Felarya - Jade - The training begins (Pt1)2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
