Ben kaçarken her yönümden
Pusula hep korkuyu gösteriyordu
Geceye vurgun bir ateş yatıyordu başucumda
Yetmiyordu kendine sarılan bedenim söndürmeye
Islak bir taşa koyarken başımı
Üzerime çekiyordum cani yalnızlığı
Hani bir ömürlük uçuşu gibi bir kelebeğin
Kanat çırpıp bir anda
Ne çiçekler doyurur
Ne bir hüzün, yağmur doğururdu
Yetmiyordu bir kanat mesafesi
Ezberlediğim aşkların hain şarkılarına
İki parmak arası bir dudak belası
Boşaltıyordu deli damarlarımı bile
Ama ben ölemiyordum

The Story of Half an HourI hate Christmas Eve. I haven't always. It started when I was old enough to realize it was bad that boys didn't like me, and that same hatred has continued to this day. All of my friends are busy being cutesy with their boyfriends and I'm stuck, in a bar, in New York, alone.The Story of Half an Hour1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Don't get me wrong, I'd rather be stuck in New York for Christmas than be back in my tiny town in Northern California, but I'd also rather be spending it with someone special. Someone who'd give me a necklace, or heck, anything, smothered in love. Instead, I am sitting on a stool, fingering the fraying edges of my black fingerless gloves while I listen to the bartender breaking up a fight.
Lifting my head slightly, I survey the bar. There are quite a few single men, but the majority of them are not attractive, like the guy over in the corner with thick, bulky glasses and a large pimple on his nose or the burly man with huge arms covered with tattoos of half naked women. Averting my eyes, I turn instead to the other
Not a Spitting ImageI walk by her everyday. I mean, it's not like I have a choice. We're sisters; we share the same DNA. But, as I look at her, all my inadequacies are thrown back into my face. Her luscious blond hair tumbles down her back like a waterfall, and she sneers at my stringy brunette mess as I pass, tugging on it hard. Whimpering, I clutch the strand she touched for dear life, but I don't retaliate. Why should I? She's perfect, and I'm below average.Not a Spitting Image2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"What's that under your chin? Are you getting fatter? Pig; it's all the food you eat. You shouldn't stuff your face so much."
"Oh my gosh, is that a zit on your forehead?! I swear, your skin is so greasy, they could use it to make french fries!"
Every morning, I try to hide from her. Just make it out of the house, and I'll be fine. But I stare down at my breakfast, thinking of her taunting me with every bite I eat, and I leave without eating.

My brain isn't wired that way.
I had a dream about the show Bones last night.
I forgot to call the plasma center.
Pelant kidnapped Bones' baby.
I was Bones.
I made a Spiderman puzzle yesterday.
The box was hard to open.
Well. I didn't make the puzzle.
I just put it together.
There were puzzles Pelant put together that we had to solve.
I had to stick needles into everyone.
I'm pretty sure I had to put Pelant's blood in them.
I'm almost finished with my book.
Don't know how I got from blood to books.
Guess my mind is just weird like that.

Best Ever FriendBest Ever Friend3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
We used to be strangers,
Then we became friends.
Now we are Besties,
Now we know, our friendship would never end.
We took the time to know each other,
More than we ever thought we could.
We learned to understand our thoughts,
Learned to hold on for all the bad and good.
We did get mad at times.
And at times, we did fight.
But those moments ended soon enough,
Making the good memories shine bright.
Even when we said something else,
We learned to know what we mean.
The knowledge that we have each other,
Gave us the strength to fight the unseen.
We learned to share our secrets,
Together, learned to laugh n cry.
Talking our heart out never felt easy,
But we did and didn't even have to try.
And then, time did make a lot of changes,
There was nothing we could do.
But what didn't change in all these years,
Is the friendship between me and you.
You were the Best friend I've ever had,
You still are the same to me.
And we will always have each other,
No matter how far we have to be.

When you feel a pang in your stomach and heart
Whenever it comes up
You don't care what others say
But you know that someone is calling you to be this person
Have faith that God is leading you in the right direction
Hold his hand through the denial
Through the pain
Through the support or rejection of your family and friends
When you have made up
You can't be dissuaded
I stand for what I believe in
And I am ready to accept God's plan for me
Even if it means looking death in the eyes
And living with pain all of my life
I am ready to let Jesus take the wheel
And steer me in the right direction

They think I don't know.
How could I not know?
He's my godchild. A precious gift, a beautiful treasure, one that I am honored to have. He's such a sweet, gentle child, kinder and softer than this world should permit. No one so delicate could survive in this world alone.
But then, there's his other.
And damn the world should it harm him at all.
I suppose that stupid wish began it - or did it really? No, of course not... Timmy has always been a strange one, too clever and delicate by half, too vulnerable yet unshakably strong.
When he was growing up, I think he felt it too. Few friends - despite all of my trying. No sports - he preferred solitude with his video games and comics. Quiet tranquillity and softness suited one such as he far better than anything else.
Beautiful, blank, and empty. Little passion to coax his shy soul into flame.
Then that stupid wish.

He'd run all the way home.
His lungs were bursting and his legs ached and his heart hammered wildly in his chest.
But still - still...
Timmy darted through the doorway, shouted a meaningless greeting to his parents, and pelted up the stairs to his room.
He flung open the door, slammed it shut just as quickly, and flung his backpack into the corner. Only then did he look up to meet the accusing eyes of the other half of his soul.
Oh God, he thought frantically, How do I explain this?
//Timmy...// it was not quite the greeting he expected. Low-voiced, even, trembling with some suppressed emotion. And he was angry. Very, very angry. Of course - had Nega done something similar, he himself would be furious.
"I..." he flailed helplessly. He hadn't had a plan when he had come barging in here, only the vaguest of ideas that if he returned to his other's side, everything would be all right.
"You what?" Nega Timmy bit out, the power around him swirling in agitation. It

They don't understand.
It's all right.
I never expected them to.
Sometimes I hardly understand it myself.
But I can't let go. I won't. Maybe I'm being selfish, and maybe I'm crazy, but nothing on heaven or earth is going to make me stop.
It sounds silly, I'm sure, and maybe I'm just a confused little boy who doesn't know what he wants. I don't know.
But it only feels that way sometimes.
At other times it makes me want to laugh and dance and sing and run screaming through the streets.
Why does it matter, anyway?
There's no escaping it, and I don't want to.
It's not that I enjoy harming others - I do my best to do the exact opposite! I can't help it, not really - I just... It just happens, sometimes... I don't mean it to, but...
It's not me, it's him.
God, but that sounds trite.
Maybe it is.
Maybe I am.
Maybe we are, but it doesn't feel that way.
No, this is overwhelming and addictive and completely insane. But trite? Never.

"Cosmo!" I call cheerfully as I begin dragging my things into the hall, "I'm back!"
A green head pokes out inquiringly from within the kitchen, and I wave cheerfully. "Morning!"
A warm smile graces his face. "Wanda! You're home!"
He trundles out into the hall and grabs my bags after giving me a rib-crushing hug, clearly intent on hauling them upstairs.
I grab one of the heavier pieces of luggage when he's not looking and follow him upstairs, laughing with him while he tries to act tough.
He tosses me an annoyed glance over his shoulder. "Oh, shut up," he scolds. I can't help but grin. I love being home.
"How's Timmy? Are his grades any better, I hope?"

Six years serving under the command of him – Erwin Smith.
Sixteen years ago, you met him for the first time.
Sixteen years, you´ve been in love with him.
Even though you stood behind the ideals of the Survey Corps with all your heart, it took only a couple of seconds to destroy you. To break your wings. To rip your heart apart. Since then you were constantly questioning if it was the right choice to join the Survey Corps.
That was merely a few days ago.
You have been on a mission outside the walls along with the other soldiers. Everything went well, nothing bad happened. Until something seemed to go horribly wrong. You couldn´t really remember what happened. It was just, on moment you were riding on your horse along with your teammates and in the next moment you were fighting against at least ten titans.

I watch him as he turns around to face me.
"(First)? What are you--" I ram myself into his chest and we both fall over onto his bed. "(First)?!" I bury my face into his shoulder and wrap my arms around his back.
"Jean, I'm sad." I say.
"Quiet, the others will hear you." His voice was low when he whispered in my ear. He placed an awkward hand on my back, attempting to comfort me. That's right, I'm feeling down. So I snuck into the men's sleeping quarters in search for the comfort of my two best friends, Jean and Marco. Unfortunetely, Marco was sound asleep next to us, fortunetely, Jean had been going to bed late tonight.
"Jean." I say, sounding a little muffled because of his shoulder.
"(First), if you came for comfort, you came to the wrong person." He said, patting my back stiffly.

You rushed about your room, brushing your hair and pulling on a different set of clothes, just for the night. It was the 'ceremonial' game night that you and the boys had every friday. You danced around like a goof while listening to some of your favorite music that was blasted through your headphones. You didn't mind being a bit late to the game nights, and you knew it put certain guys on edge. You spun around and found a pair of strong arms lifting you up for a second. You chuckled and squirmed until you were free, promptly spinning around and looking the male in the eyes. Your eyes quickly swept from the shirtless torso to the handsome face, recognizing Jean. Thankfully he had some dark pants on, so it wasn't awkward.

I never really thought about killing them, or learning more about them. I wasn't even interested in the outside world. When I mentioned this to other people, they asked me why I joined the Scouting Legion. I used to say "I don't know," and that was true. I honestly did not know why I joined the Scouting Legion until I was nearly eaten alive. I was still an amateur then, ignorant.
But that doesn't change anything. I'm still an ignorant amateur. However, I'm only an ignorant amateur in the world I live in, since I barely know what a cow tastes like, or how bees make honey. I've learned, though, that there are people in this world that only care about one thing, and will sacrifice anything for that one thing. And those are the strongest of people.

“Looks like it,” you answered with no attempt to hide the distaste in your voice.
Mina snorted, fixing her black pigtails as she turned from the list and walked off to find her partner. “Have fun with that!”
“Yeah, right,” you retorted to yourself. Like that would be possible.
To be fair, it wouldn’t have been so bad considering how handsome he was, but his personality and cocky comments completely overshadowed his looks and even ruined that for you - most of the time, anyway. His st
