My sunshineMy sunshine4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine

I caught the lurking shadows
behind your large city eyes.
And with barbwire fingers,
You stroked all my pretty s c a r s.

OneI have a life threatening illnessOne3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Severe and Major
It's threatened my life on more than
A few occasions
Dark nights it lingers over my shoulder
Whispering thoughts into my head
One tragic accident away from death
One slip, one night I feel too...
One cut too deep, One slice too thick,
One pill too many, One jump too far,
One step off a curb, One shot in the dark,
One word too many hanging from your lips
One comment too far, One life lost,
One thin piece of rope, One chair kicked,
One river too deep, One knife too sharp,
One pool of blood too large, One bad day,
One teenager added to a growing statistic,
One family torn apart, One school shocked,
One neighborhood mourning a hidden struggle
It only really takes ONE
Open your eyes.
Reach out One hand,
Say One genuinely kind thing,
Keep One thing in your thoughts,
Tell One person what you've seen
Tell One person how you feel, what you suspect
Open your mouth Once
Save ONE life.

chalked the room
bright blue for spite -
all to make a name.
With haste he stepped
on sidewalk cracks
and slept with lions,
snug and tight
as winter evenings
lost in dream-wood.
He pulled rabbits out of hats
and talked the thin air
into changing colors -
the snake tail of evening
churning on the lake.
And dragons bowed down low
and claimed his heart
a luscious toy
and made promises
to the reed backed wind
that he would live forever.
Her name was desire.Sometimes, When I'm bored, and daydreaming,Her name was desire.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I pretend that I'm playing with fire,
Cause it reminds me what it felt like,
To be alive, to be free,
To be dangerous and adored,
I pretend that when I walk sparks fly,
From my heels and set my path ablaze,
I like to watch bemused stares,
And think to myself, for once,
I'm the (good) bad girl,
I want my hair to flick wildly around my face,
For my smile to stop conversations,
I want to set fire to all we know,
To all the misconceived conceptions,
The stereotypes and lies.
I want to set fire to our love,
And hope that we survive.

with the tide's rapid breath
against the shore
for she knows
the sea will claim its own -
tall ships and turrets
spun out of sand
and the pearl twist of moon
caught upon a basslet's back
when conch's dulcet tune
lulls manna from the waves.
And what sirens claim for treasure,
men can only dream of....

Just wake up.
Never wanted this.

The person everybody seesI want to screamThe person everybody sees4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to cry
I want to kick and punch
And get rid of these emotions
Inside of me.
But I wont.
Because that ruins my image
Of a normal girl.
Outside is a normal
Happy, hyper girl.
Inside are all the
Emotions that I can't show.
I want to scream
And run away
And cry until I cant see
But I wont
Because you all
Wouldn't handle the real me.
The one who's bitchy
The one that's over sensitive
The one that doesn't listen
The one who hates everything
So leave me alone
So I can cry
So that I can be
That no one else sees.

That I never thought applied to me
But now you've left, truly gone
I miss you with a fiery intensity
It burns and burns
It has no end
But when it comes down to it I know we're only friends
Missing is unfair
It creeps up sneakily behind me
And leaps to my side whenever you're not there
To hold my hand silently
I miss the warmth in your eyes
And the smile that plays on your lips
I miss fussing over your jumper, holding your hand and arguing over the colour of the sky
I just miss telling you things like this
There's a cold shiver this morning
Now I realise this is true
Please don't leave me now
Now I've fallen head over heels for you
Lost LoveDid you know?Lost Love8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It takes a minute to like someone,
and an hour to love someone,
but to forget someone takes a lifetime.
Well its true.
Cuz it describes what happen when I met you.
You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
but you can't close your heart to things you don't want to feel.
Its just not possible.
Just like I can't stop the rain from falling,
I can't stop my heart from loving.
Thats why I can't talk to you anymore,
its not that I'm mad at you,
Or that I HATE YOU,
its just that when I talk to you I realize how much I love you
and when I realize how much I love you,
I realize I can't have you and that kills me.
If only I never met you.
If I never met you, I wouldn't like you.
If I didn't like you I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you I wouldn't miss you,
but I did, I do, and I will.
And I cant do anything about it.
Its like no matter what I do,
I never seem to get close to you.
Thats why I'm pushing you away.
Cuz I want my love to die today!
I want it to

Though it was now 9:00 at night, Gremlin and Crystal were still dead-set on exploring the caverns which the Sableye had accidentally discovered earlier that day. As expected, the newlyweds were still wearing their ornate wedding attire and shimmering red ballet instructor sashes, although Crystal wisely had traded out her tiara for a hardhat with a forward-facing headlamp. Gremlin was wearing the same kind of headgear, except he had a large blue flame atop his head instead of

Chapter Two: The Arbiter's Captives
When Eris woke up, her body felt light. Her eyes opened to a dark blue ceiling with a hexagonal pattern, which she examined briefly before sitting up. Looking down at her body, she blanched. She was wearing a grey dress, styled into a halter-top, with braces on her arms. Feeling exposed, she hugged herself as she examined the rest of the room. The woman she had tried to save, sleeping still, was dressed similarly, though her dress was white instead of grey. Eris opened her mouth only to close it, repeating the action a few times. She had never really seen clothing as beautiful, due to her upbringing and her life as a rebel soldier, but now she was confused. Wasn't she supposed to be dead?
Her last memories seemed to indicate that her assumption was correct, but she felt the surface beneath her, and when she breathed in, the air smelled. She doubted the dead could smell. A motion to the side made her jerk in surprise. The ot
Broken HeartWhy does love hurt?Broken Heart6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Why does something that is supposed to be so sweet
Leave you wounded
Battered and broken
Yet still wanting
Wanting what hurt you in the first place
Why does a heart
Make the body feel such strong emotions
Leave you open
And not caring
If you get it returned in full
Love is addicting
Like that drug you know is bad for you
You ache for it
Yearn and pine
Wanting to hear
The words I love you
But instead of that
You dont hear what you want
You call out
Cry for emotion
But your heart is alone
And you are left broken again

"Mmm. I can taste the flesh of those undead monsters already." Nikolai was holding onto his gun very tightly, grinning devilishly while doing so. For a moment, Dempsey swore he could see a flash of red in Nikolai's eyes.
"Uhh, you're kidding right? You're not actually thinking about eating these guys, right?" chuckled Dempsey nervously.
"Why? Are you afraid of me?" Nikolai asked.
"Umm, no. I was asking, because, uhh, that would be disgusting. Yeah, Im not afraid of you." said Dempsey.
Before Nikolai could answer, a loud whoosh could be heard while Takeo, completely ignoring the two, torched down his first zombie. Dempsey held his BAR at the ready, trying to completely ignore the fact that Nikolai was watching Dempsey with confusion.
Before long, the hordes were funneling into the hallway while the three fired away at them. Ta

Realms: 5Although they had slept at midnight, and expected to wake up at ten in the morning, they instead woke up at five. And in that time, no neighbor was yet awake. As Sarika awakened and looked around, everything was still rather quiet, she looked over at Aldric and smiled at him, she gently nuzzled him and got up to stretch. Today was a really big day, it was time to return to the dragon realms and live out life. She really couldn't wait for the future to happen; it was something she didn't think she'd actually look forward to. She looked back down at her mate and nuzzled him again, trying to awaken him.Realms: 55 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Aldric just groaned in his sleep as Sarika nuzzled him. He shifted lightly and moved his head away from her and place it under his wing some and continued sleeping. He even started to mumble in his sleep lightly.
"Five more minutes mom." he mumbled.
Sarika giggled and told him, "Since when was I your mother?"
Aldric slowly opened his eyes as he heard Sarika's voice and lifted his head from

He found her, and one of the strange creatures, a few centimeters apart, both shouting at their top of their lungs. Surely, someone would have heard this entire racket. The other unconscious creature also awoke, and upon seeing Cynder and Spyro, he froze on his bed.
Finally, the shouts of screams were faded away, leaving a sudden empty silence. Cynder walked back a little bit from the stranger he was staring at.
"Cynder, are you all right? Why did you scream?" Spyro asked concern plain in his voice.
"Yes... yes, I'm all right"
