We're losing the strings
If I knew it'd hurt
I'd know what it means
If you'd say hello
My heart would say hi
My mouth wouldn't follow
So I'd just say good bye
I'd lock up my thoughts
I'd be losing my head
All the memories it brought
Back from the dead
If my heart had a face
It'd be sad right now
'Cause I can't retrace
'Cause I don't know how
If it did anything
If it had a true song
What good would it bring
To just sing along
To smile again
To see you my friend
To think of the past
How I hoped it would last... But
We've fallen apart
We've lost the strings
I know it hurts
And now I know what it means
Das Entchen und der Otter - Eine Fabel oder so.Eine Ente und ein Otter lebten zusammen in einem Nest an einem schönen See. Sie lebten schon sehr lange so zusammen und die Ente hatte den Otter sehr lieb gewonnen - doch traute sich nie es ihm zu sagen. Die kleine Ente war etwas tollpatschig und so kam es, dass sie dem Otter mit ihren großen Plattfüßen oft auf die Zehen trat. Der Otter schrie fürchterlich, denn das Entchen war nicht gerade leicht durch das schwere Federkleid, welches es trug. Auch nach mehrmaligem Entschuldigen wurde der Otter oft böse, denn so sehr die Ente auch aufpasste - sie erwischte seine Zehen immer wieder.Das Entchen und der Otter - Eine Fabel oder so.3 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Eines Tages wollte sich das Entchen entschuldigen und beschloss dem Otter einen leckeren Fisch zuzubereiten. So war sie also auf den See hinausgeschwommen und wartete bis sie einen großen Fisch sah. Es dauerte auch nicht lange und 'Haps!' hatte sie einen im Schnabel. Als der Fisch nun fertig zubereitet war und gut duftend auf dem Tisch stand, freute sich der Otter sehr und verschlang ihn am Stück. Die Ente,

Guard your gold and watch your wives,
Trust no man,
Who carries around lock picks and knives,
For they shall be the ones,
To plunder your hard-earned treasure,
Wear the crown,
Despite not being the true successor,
Steal the pretty girls,
Whilst disguised as a beggar,
Leeching from all,
To satiate their own pleasure,
Veiled by the night,
And protected by stormy weather,
Often acting when it is dark,
And you can hear thunder,
Rogues live to capitalize off of,
Your slightest blunder!

Mouse, Sausage, and Bird Short Story Fairy TaleOnce upon a time, in a very cold and hostile world, there lived three large rats of the race Skay Wayal deep in the jungle. Their names were Mouse, Sausage, and Bird. All three were cousins, who had inherited a cozy cottage from their late grandfather Moon. They were each unique in their own way, and they each had their own role to fill around the house.Mouse, Sausage, and Bird Short Story Fairy Tale9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Mouse was short and brown and skinny. His whiskers were tiny, his ears were big, and his nose was pink. It was his role in life to fetch water from the well and to make sure that the fireplace was well maintained so that the cottage was always warm.
Sausage was short and black and fat. His whiskers were long, his ears were small, and his nose was white. His role in life was to cook all the food for himself and his cousins- breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and all the snacks in between so that they may never starve.
Bird was tall and white and stocky. He was strong and fast and brave. It was his duty in life as mandated by their late

They fight for glory,
Upon fields of mud,
And inside arenas that are gory,
Built for battle they fight,
Until their last breath,
As the crowd savors,
The pungent aroma of death,
If you think that is cruel,
Then the cruel world,
Itself is to be blamed,
But I have one question,
Are you not entertained?

Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Let me start off by saying that this review might be very short due to the number of my friends who haven't seen the series, and the amount of spoilers.
Yes, this show has a lot of spoilers; what show doesn't? But this one almost seems to thrive on the "wow" moment that leaves your jaw on the ground.
The main plot (without spoilers) is basically this; there are evil creatures called "Witches" who exist in the near-future of Japan (and all over the world as well). These monsters take on many forms and create negative feelings in humans. This leads to suicides, murders, and death and despair overall. The Witches create magical barriers to protect themselves, as well as to trap humans.
However, there's hope. Girls are recruited by the adorable Kyubey to become Magical Girls and have a wish of theirs granted (so, basically, they get a wish granted in exchange for fighting Witches). The job of the Magical Girls is to fight Witches, sacrificing everything to

Warm BloodWarm blood falls in red rivulets,Warm Blood9 months ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
Weeping from five wounds to form lovely quintets,
Warm blood oozes from holes in hues of black,
Leaking from pores,
And descending in streams down the back,
Warm blood departs from the veins,
That are fueled by the heart,
A strong man accepts that.
The essence of his life is soon to depart,
Clutching his sword whilst watching the red,
The absence of warm blood soon left him dead...

Character Review 1 - CharlotteCharacter Review 1 - Charlotte3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Charlotte is one of the Witches from the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica. She appears only in episode 3, but has an important role, complete with crunchy sound effects.
I really love this character. She only appears in one episode, but still. Certain clues in her scene piece together to reveal her tragic back-story. In this anime, witches are monsters that were once human.
When she first appears, she has the appearance of a doll. She is simply adorable. Her 'witch's barrier' is littered with candy and sweets, though in one scene, there is a hypodermic needle. According to the website, she craves cheese. Her minions come in two varieties; one kind that is dressed like a nurse, while the other is dressed as an angel. They both have the task of searching for the cheese that Charlotte desires. However, they never succeed.
After being provoked, she turns into a caterpillar-like form. When this new form is injured, a new one takes its place with the appearance of shedding skin.

I knew everything would change the day my sister asked me, Theyre gonna get divorced, arent they?
"Maybe," I replied.
Its a sad thing hearing your little sister say that with such finality. Because in this war of words, the innocent suffer most.
As she continues gluing on her heart-shaped box and sprinkling pink glitter with tiny trembling fingers, my insides are in turmoil.
When I was little, I used to be scared whenever they fought, so I hid beneath my covers. But things are different now. I am a high schooler, grown and able to make my own choices. Today, I choose to fight back.
So I blast my music as loud as it can go until I cant hear their screaming. Hard, angry lyrics replace theirs.
In between songs, I whisper, I wish they would stop fighting.
I know they can hear me.
They both have a warped sense of justice. Each side believes that they are right, but both are wrong.
We are but broken records with the same words.

Lurked in the night,
Insidiously creeping forward,
And shirking the light,
They carried sickles in their hands,
And smiles upon their face,
Be killed by them and your soul,
Will be trapped within a wicked place,
Mighty men wept as they gazed,
Into those emerald eyes,
Screaming in the green fire,
Nobody could hear their cries.

"Quit worrying my boy!" I huffed, tightening the straps. "As long as you do what I say you'll be fine. Besides," I said knocking my fists against one of his wings, "these wings will get us where we need to."
He gave a small smile. "I know, I guess I'm just a little nervous. I've never flown before," he chuckled.

Even now, as I lie in wait of the next being to grasp the hilt of my prison of steel memeories of my past track back through my mind constantly reminding me of a lesson I wished that I had learned a long time ago.
When I first hatched from my egg, I noticed many others around me. Shortly after I had hatched my twin brother, whom I would simply call "brother" for the next two hundred years, also hatched. From that very second, though I was barely old enough to keep my eyes open for more than a few seconds, I knew that we would never be close as any real brothers would be. Two centuries passed in my home. I learned many things over those two hundred years, including the name of our great home: Dragusinkusekki. Though they said that the humans simply called it "Home of the Dragon" the true translation was "World of the Dragons" but of course those meager and weaker beings simply felt that they belonged to our world. A world that we ruled. As time went on it would

Sometimes good, sometimes bad,

You learn the most important things

You learn to walk and talk and eat,
you learn the meaning of a tear.
Do you believe that as you grow,
you get any smarter?
Well if that's true, and you actually do,
then why must your brain work harder?
You may think you know a lot,
but come to face the facts.
You may know one millionth of everything,

If you were actually smart at all,

DaisesWith loveless hearts and broken souls, they walked in the meadow. Following the sense of their callings, not realizing the irony of the situation they would walk into. Little flowers, daisies, are never really striking out, like roses or tulips and lilies. They walk and walk, trampling the miniscule flowers with every step. Never minding or even envisioning the facts, for those flowers would be the last flower they would ever see. Erie sounds surrounded the fields and both of them stood oblivious, for they were consumed within themselves. Almost home, those train tracks ahead signaled less than a quarter mile to go. Silence, silence in the air, closer then close, friends after all. Forever for each other, secretly in love but never release the truth. Breaking points breaking, falling deeper and deeper into the depths of their broken hearts, never realizing the truer love was right there besides them. Approaching the tracks, the train in the distance, listened, they quietly listened. onDaises2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
