that's what my
skin tells me when
I'm slowly melting into
bed sheets not worth
lying in twice.
Half sick of shadows,
I think I've lost my mind.
My thoughts are s p i n n i n g
and my bones are shaking.
But I keep repeating re-peating
repeating your name like a mantra.
All I want to do is sleep.
But you see,
I bleed more than red
and there is this ink pen
digging through my skin.
Foxx and Owl - Part 1Foxx and Owl - Part 13 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Shit," she stammered through chattering teeth. "Where the hell is Owl?"
Foxx waited. Wringing her fingers together tightly and hunching her shoulders, she turned her back to the lower city winds. The stone bench she had made her perch for the past 45 minutes wasn't the warmest place to kill time, but she had suffered worse. She tapped the nose of her mask, bored, all the time wondering what was taking Owl so long.
Foxx always wore her mask in public; a red fox mask with vacant yellow eyes. She pulled her lightweight jacket tighter around her body, shivering all the while, waiting. The wind existed to be unforgiving today.
A jingle caught Foxx's attention and she jerked her head in the direction of the noise. "Damnit," she cursed. It was just the door to the old Chinese noodle shop opening. One of the waiters swept th

Sit down, my friend,
Let me tell you of the game,
It's a hard, painful journey,
With the goal of making you remember my name.
I'm nothing to you,
Just another girl you use,
Smack me, hit me, hurt me
Somehow, I like the abuse.
I can say that I hate you,
But babe, I'll never believe it,
I really want to though,
Cuz you're my worst habit.
Within seconds without you,
I miss you so much,
If you left I don't know what I'd do,
I'm hopelessly in your clutch.
I just want you to love me.
I want you to say I'm yours,
I say you're running out of time,
But truth is, for you, I'll never close my doors.
All you need to do is knock once,
I'll answer the door with heart in hand,
But be careful with it love, it's glass,
Please don't just grind it into sand.
You're the only person in the world,
Who knows me like you do,
So I cling to you so fondly,
Because you get me and I get you too.
But I try to let you go,
To see if you come back,
I'm terrified you won't,
Paranoia gives me a panic attack.

For the Coming Death of MeSnap my neckFor the Coming Death of Me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or, snap me back
Show me the path
Tell me the truth
Cut my throat
Or, cut out all of the stories lies
Alice can only walk in her wonderland
Before reality over comes her
Stab me in the back
Or, scream your truths in my face
You are now the root
Of a new agonizing fear
Hang me to suffocate
Or, hang out the old photos and give me a reason
to stop and ponder, and wonder once more
The reason behind your actions
Overdose me till I can take no more
Before I choke on the words of the next lie
You planted the seeds of hate
Knowing full wll what you were doing
Let me "slip" and fall off this cliff
Before I fall back into my self destructive habits
The only thing that will truely silence
Silence the voices this new pain has created
Bleed me out
Until your words are written in my blood
Maybe that will make the meaning clear
As I lay in a haze on the floor
Crack my skull
Let the nightmares pour out
See that you are the only thought I have
The center of my panic
But, what ever you do

"Ah, welcome Leonardo," Gen shouted in greeting as he walked up to Leo and Usagi. "You didn't bring the Battle Nexus champion with you? You know, Michelangelo cost me a small fortune that day."
Usagi laughed. "You cost yourself a small fortune, Gennosuke. Your wagers are often too indiscriminate."
"Maybe so," Gen acknowledged. "But I still make money from them. So tell me, how is it you've come back with Usagi here? Is there some plot against the young Lord that I should be aware of?"
Leo shook his head, smiling. "Nothing like that. We were enjoying one another's company so much, we decided to extend our visit and give me the opportunity to travel."
"And to experience the sunshine without having to hide from it," Usagi added.
Gen looked from one to the other and smirked. He had the feeling there was something more here, but he wasn't one to interfere. At least not if it didn't involve a profit.

AshiteruWhen I stopped breathing my heart went numbAshiteru3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And the waves of my heart began to drum
You would smile at me and I would slowly break down
It was only you and me and no one else around
My once fragile life burst into dust
Having you with me was always a must
Looking back at it now you took my breath from me
The first time you kissed me was a guarantee
It sent shivers down my body and rattled my spine
You branded me and owned me with your spark of design
And when you would sleep I'd still be awake
My nerves still shook and they continued to quake
You looked like an angel sent from above
No matter how cliché; it's what we call love
Admittingly I'll say that I soon became attached
I was quick to love you, our hearts matched
It scared me to think I was starting to let go
But it had to happen now, I had to foreshow
Now, don't get me wrong and don't think I'm insane
But my life wasn't perfect even with you in my brain
I still cried a lot and kept to my habits
But with you by my side we con

You left our family
I understand your reason

I cry because it hurts
It hurts so damn much
I can barely breath
You were the air in my lungs
My blood falling on the floor
Our bed empty now
As are my eyes
As is my chest
But I will wait for you
I will wait for your return
I know you will
When you're ready
I will be waiting
But untill then...
I will be crying
From the outside and inside
Because it hurts so much
I can barely breath
Broken but I will wait
For your return
We are bound forever
We are meant to be forever together

Death is calling my name-
You have left me in vain.

Couldn't rise up to your expectations.

I'll always love you.

My mother taught me:
"A lady must understand her role, you must understand elegance, but like with every woman, you must understand revenge and patience."
I am an elegant young woman, am I not?
I treat my opponents with respect.
I am a patient young woman, am I not?
I wait quietly for them to decide their wish.
I am a revengeful young woman, am I not?
If I die, I will haunt you. Won't I?
They say I'm arrogant, but its just my confidence is high.
I fight every battle as though there is no tomorrow, and trust me, I don't lose my head over it.
I'm so very lonely, but like my mother says:
"A lady must have patience."
So I'll wait for another one to come along, an ally.
They'll never betray me, because I can be very avengeful.
Oh, I'm not going to manipulate to do my bidding, how could I do such a thing?
I was stripped of everything I love
You aren't stripping away a certain someone from me, now are you?
Because I wouldn't mind blowing your head off any time soon.

I have no reason to go to sleep in the evening,
I have no reason to get up in the morning.
He did this.
He changed me.
He was at the center of the best moment of my young life
and when everything I knew came crashing down, with him to blame
he helped me rebuild.
His soft voice and vulgar humor sustained me.
His eyes, his hair, his body seduced me.
His laugh, his mere existence brought me happiness
I owe him everything.
He changed me.
He was my reason to go to sleep in the evening,
He was the reason to get up in the morning.
He was my world.
He forced me to feel
He made me feel love
Even if it was all one sided,
he made me feel.
I'm sure I'll miss those feelings
I know I'll miss him.
But, right now, I can't tell.
I feel nothing.

The taste of ash in the blackened air

The moment where time stops for but a instant
It's where your life flashes before you
The moment where it all begins to fade

Nothing torments more than your happiest memories
Nothing stings more than relieved tears.

Nothing is more satisfying than eating alone
Nothing is more relaxing than talking to thin air
Nothing screams happy like crying alone.
Nothing is right
Everything is a mess
How I'll get through this
Is anyone's guess.
So thank you for breaking my heart
and for making me give up on love
Thank you for leaving me with a future
That nothing can be made of.

as a difference in temperature enfolds supple skin.
Already the notion of insincere signatures and infinite pages
seem a world too far from here.
Colossal silhouettes materialize from all angles, speaking,
singing; A sound that rumbles through you,
reverberating throughout you, echoing.
A melody we may only wish to comprehend, a tune
that reaches beyond the things that will not wait for us
above the cerulean surface.

Would stop drinking
Daddy promised that
He would try, but
I guess everything Daddy said
Was nothing more then a lie
When Daddy gets drunk
He goes crazy and
Hits and screams
He beats mommy
Until she's unconscious
Then he goes looking for me
I hear his footsteps
Throughout my room
He looks through my closet
"EMMA WHERE ARE YOU!?"
He's staggering and swearing
He wants to beat me black and blue
Daddy then screams loudly
"YOU EIGHT YEAR OLD BRAT,
WHERE ARE YOU!?!"
He bends down
And looks under my bed
There he finds me
"There you are!" Daddy says
He pulls me out
By my hair, instantly
He starts beating me
Without a care...
An hour or two go by
The beating is finally done
I'm lying on the floor
I'm bleeding and fully numb

You, Connor, and Ben all finally arrived in the city of New York after a few days of travel by horse. You three passed through the checkpoint and you and Connor both let Ben take the lead in front, following him on your own individual horses.
“So what is you stake in all this?” Connor asked, having his horse gallop next to Ben’s while you lingered a little ways behind, keeping a look out.
“Same as yours. Peace. Stability. A land in which all might live side by side – free and equal,” Ben replied.
“Why not join the brotherhood, then?” Connor asked.
