The Little MermaidA shadow just beneath the waters, you see her.The Little Mermaid7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Her scales and skin shimmering under the sea foam.
But shes gone to fast, leaving you with an unsure memory,
But you saw her
A seabirds cry of distress, a fishs frantic flopping.
The ocean runs red with emotions that arent yours, but you feel them.
The gleam of her unclothed silhouette, the idea of her bewildered eyes.
You watch her from a distance, not wanting to get involved.
She stumbles on her new appendages, wobbling left and tilting right.
You sigh as she cries out; her skin not meant for this sand, her feet are bleeding.
Shes being held in a weary embrace, the arms of a Prince, her eyes glow.
The shadow of her small figure, through the glass, gowned in fineries to bland for her.
You observe the Love in her eyes, but find only Friendship in his.
Her coral coloured lips part in a laugh you know is silent,
She is not meant for here, she knows, but what girl, fish or human, can lock away Love?

Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

I looked up at my mom from my soggy bowl of corn flakes sitting on the kitchen table in front of me, untouched. Breakfast was defiantly not my favorite meal of the day since I would always end up feeling sick after words. Though mom and dad had both commanded me to eat or else they'd lock me in the basement with the Heartless.
When I was little, the very thought of Heartless, or the darkness scared me since mom and dad would always fill my head of adventurous stories of vanquishing the little creatures and defeating the darkness. Now that I was thirteen, I knew they were just kidding around about locking me down there. I hoped they were anyway.
"Hey mom?" I said though a mouthful of cereal.
"Chew your food first, hon."
There wasn't really much to chew, since it was already mush, but I bit into it anyway, then swallowed the lump of flakes. "Where's dad? He said he would teach me some new things with the keyblade today."
"Your father said that? Soku, I can teach you the same stuff, if no

A woman with long flowing white hair ran through the streets to the palace with a small bundle in her arms. The woman looks behind her only to fall forward causing the small bundle to fall out of her arms.
Once the bundle hit the ground a cry came from the small dark blanket. The woman ran over to the small bundle picking it up revealing a small baby's face. The baby looked up at his mother and started to giggle.
The woman smiled as she continued her quest to the palace. "Stop! You woman! Stop right there!!" A royal guard yelled.
The woman froze but quickly ran. She wouldn't let THEM take her son. Not her little Ryou. The woman ran to the royal gardens where she lost the guards. She smiled down sadly at her son then started to sing. "Yal-di ha-tov veh ha-rach Al ti-ra veh al tif-chad(1) My son I have nothing I can give,

You whipped around to find Demyx, shaking, eyes wide with fear.for Saix lovers4 years ago in Romance More Like This
You immediately barked out, "Demyx! Whats going on?!"
this snapped him out of it, and the look of true fear present in his every move told you the answer even before he said it.
"It's Saix again!" he wailed and cringed.
You sigh. Saix was a berserker, and his temper got the best of him at least three times a week, more often going over that limit than staying under it. But the strange thing was, you were the only one who could calm him. Not even the Superior had the same effect on him that you did.
"Who got to him this time?" you ask, knowing the answer to this also.

You sigh, sitting on the Organization couch, bored out of your mind. Of all the days that you were actually able to come and visit, it had to be on the day when everyone, except Xemnas, was out on a mission. You bury your face in your hands, trying to think of a way to spend five hours alone in the castle. Well, alone except for Xemnas, but he doesn't really count in your eyes.
"Is something wrong?" A familiar voice asks, and you look up to see Saix standing across the room from you. "Saix!" You exclaim, happy to see someone aside from Xemnas around. "Yes?" He answers, raising a brow. You shrug and get up from the couch. "You wanna do something?"
His brow goes higher. "You want to do something . . . with me?" You nod. "Well you wouldn't have me spending all day alone, would you?" He crosses his arms, thinking. "No, I suppose I wouldn't." You giggle, pleased, and grab his hand, taking him to your gummi ship.

There was a beautiful sunset coming then.
The sun is white hot and high.
I sat in the sand with my toes soaking in the water.
Two old men sit on a bench parallel with the outer wall of the building.
He stepped inside my lingering footprints and stopped right behind me.
My footsteps echo precious old memories against the walls after I come in.
We were alone.
I'm almost the only one there, and it makes me feel more noticed than I like.
I turned and eyed him.
Everyone stares as I walk into the elevator.
He looked down at me with a faint smirk.
Remembering keeps me from smiling.
And then he sat down at my side.
One other person comes in and stands next to me.
The lights in his eyes danced like the glow on the water.
A red light clicks on when I press the button for the tallest floor to which the elevator goes.
Minutes passed us by.
It takes only a few minutes.

All villagers came to greet him, but quickly turned around and simply left him alone as they saw the moody expression on his face. If there was one thing nobody in town would ever do, then it was pissing of one of the most famous dragonslayers in the land. Mokuba walked over to his big brother while holding a glass of beer in his small hands. When he stood next to the chair he smiled and held the glass up to his elder sibling. "If you don't wipe that look of your face soon, you'll grow wrinkles brother. Here drink some beer, that will cheer you up!" The little boy said jokingly, hoping he would be able to cheer Seto up. But the dragonslayer just sighed and looked away. "Leave me alone Mokuba, I'm not in the mood." Mokuba shook sighing his head and walked back to Tea, who was standing behind the bar.

I mean if he loves me so much then why'd h e cheat on me?",Ryeowook wondered as he walked home. The lights were on in the living room when he got home, so Kyuhyun hadn't left yet. He didn't feel like arguing right now. He silently crept through the kitchen and was almost up the stairs when he was caught.
"Ryeowook?" he turned around, Kyuhyun looked awful, pale and sickly. His eyes were sad and tired, his hair was messy, it was a whole new Kyuhyun. It had only been one day! How could he have changed this much within a few hours?

After throwing a rather reluctant (not to mention, perverted) Axel out of his room, Roxas pulled on his worn leather pants and a soft cotton shirt, both black to blend in with the heavy Organization coat.
"Why's Axel so enthusiastic? He's usually the last one to roll out of bed every morning," Roxas mused out loud, lacing up his combat boots. "He's never been this excited about anything since the Castle Oblivion mission." Roxas shrugged and zipped up his coat's over-sized zipper. As soon as he took a cautious step outside of his room, a blur or scarlet pounced on him, pulling Roxas down the hall.
