Suicide or Tea?Should I kill myself or have a cup of tea?Suicide or Tea?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I decide on the latter and I'm not sure why. Probably because I can. Life is a never-ending scroll of be-goods, be-happies, be-in-controls, be-okays, be-strongs and be-appreciatives. So what's another day?
Just another day closer to death.
Still, life seems incredibly long, don't you think? So long, it's hard to see the end and nearly impossible to touch even with a knife in my hand that could easily skewer my heart, make it squirm and still like a dying nightingale sealing its death with a pathetic squeal of almost-song.
Life is pain and people in pain are a pain in the ass. Perhaps occasionally or perhaps frequently, they think "Why not just kill myself? Life is hell, anyway. No hell after life could be worse than this."
But they're wrong. The worst is never the worst because things can always get worse and maybe that's why I decided to stick with the chamomile tea. That or I feel tea-sipping is reason to live.

Kada drained the remains of her drink, listening with one ear to the conversations in the bar around her.
"Anything else?" The slightly nasal sounding voice of the robot behind the counter asked. Kada shook her head.
"No. Thanks," She added, in case the bot's visual receptors were malfunctioning again. One of her only fond memories of this place was of the day that same bot - the tag on its left shoulder read 'Mavis' - had malfunctioned, and pelted unsuspecting customers with boiling coffee. From the relative safety of the back corner Kada had allowed herself a small grin of sadistic amusement. Their pain was unfortunate but a medic had been on hand to stop any scarring, and the bemused shrieking of the patrons had been the most hilarious thing she'd heard all week.
"Darned rain," Mavis continued conversationally, "Really isn't good for a body, you know what I'm saying? Goes straight to my joints, let me tell you."
"Really?" Kada didn't bother to make her voice sound interested. "That'

"Morning." He said, sitting on the edge of the bed near me, rubbing his thumb along my jaw line. I sat up, fisted my hand into his shirt, and pulled him down into my lips. That definitely woke me up.
"Morning." I sighed, our lips only an inch a part. "Now, tell me why you're in my room." He pulled away and taking his warmth with him, frowning.
"Am I not supposed to be in here? Am I not allowed?" He asked, an edge of hurt joining his words. He was giving me the look. See what you did now, Idiot? Apologize and do it fast. I told the voice to shut up.
"It's not that I don't want you in here!" I said quickly, then blushing at my wording. "I mean, what i-if Aunt L-l-lauren found you in here on the b-bed. S-s-she be a-a bit upse-e-et." I heard him chuckle,

Derek finished changing. "You look pretty hairy for someone that's not changing into a wolf today." I joked. He snorted. "I guess, I was right once again." He rolled his eyes and laid down beside me. Derek still gets tired after his changes but not as tired as the first time. Now he can easily jump up and run around a few minute after he changes but, since it takes a few hours for him to change back, most of the time he just chooses to sleep off some hours. I laid my head on his back and ran my hands through his fur.
I found myself waking up to the sound of Derek's growl. I looked in the direction he was growling at. Peeking from behind a bush was a wolf. It was a tree-bark brown and had a sort of feminine look to it. Its blue-green eyes were the

"Tax due Chloe, pay up." Simon leaned over the monopoly board with his hand outstretched.
I sigh, count out $500 and hand it to him. I look at the monopoly cash in my hand. $100, $5, and three $1s. How worst can a hand get?
Derek rolled the dice and moved his piece 3 spaces. Then he reads "Take $100 from each player. Everyone hands him $100. I look at my hand again. A $5 and three $1s.
Tori rolled the dice and moved her piece 5 spaces. "Go to jail? I'm innocent until proven guilt."
"Well it looks like you've just been proven guilty." Simon moves Tori's piece to "jail".
"Fine! Then I win."
"And how'd you win?"
"Easy! I used magic to escape, burst the jail into flames, made the cops beg for mercy, and was voted governor. Therefore, everything here is mine."

"Are Simon and Tori really twins?" He jumped up almost tripping over the bar stool behind him. He waved me to the end of the hallway.
"When who " He stopped to think. "What makes you think that?"
"Someone at the lab told me." He thought some more.
"A random person that works for someone we don't trust tells you something, and you believe it?"
"No, but your reaction just confirmed it."
"Good point. Well who else knows?
"If your asking does Derek, Tori, and Simon know, they don't but your gonna have to tell them someday."
"I plan to tell them."

It didnt matter anymore. There was no one else. He had killed them all in an effort to reach me.
I was all that was left; it would only be a matter of time before he found me. I stood gazing out at the sea. Goose pimples raised my flesh and I crammed a hand against my forehead in an effort to stifle my mind. Something slapped my ankle and I jumped, looking down. It was another letter.
He had left me love notes on the headstones, each and every one, the adorations enough to make your skin crawl. He had come out of nowhere, pursuing me. When I made it apparent I would always refuse him, he retaliated.
Now I was all that was left. I picked up the letter. It flapped against my finger

we are complete opposites;
however, she was me,
and I am her.
She always knew
how to make me smile,
to make me laugh,
and what more could I possibly ask for,
but maybe nothing more.
She is what I always wanted,
someone to make me whole.
She was the center of my universe,
more than this insignificant world.
I dont understand
why I feel the way I do,
but time passes slowly,
and only when its come,
shall we know what we must do.
She is my complete opposite.
She is the yin to my yang.
She means to world me,
and I mean the world to you.
To tell you all the difference
would do very little harm,
but maybe in the future,
she will not be me,
but I will still be the world to you.

Kendall hated this. He hated seeing his friend, his brother, hurting. He hated hearing it. He hated not being able to help. But, where he was, sitting so close, yet so far away from his friend, listening to him sob. Each shuddering breath he heard pulled the breath out of him, robbed him of his strength. But, he couldn’t do anything about it. A door separated them. It was only inches thick, but he felt like he was miles apart, helpless to catch up, to reach his friend.
To reach James. You wouldn't know by looking at him that he was very sensitive. He hated it when people saw him broken down. He hated it when Kendall saw him broken down.
Kendall had come back to the apartment when he was done with recording. Logan and Carlos were still recording some of their stuff and Katie and his mom had gone out. James was nowhere to be found, until Kendall had heard his quiet sobs.

Friendship, love, laughter,
If you could write a story,
what would it be about?
Heros, romance, adventures,
If I could write the perfect poem,
it would describe my love for my friends.
My awe at why people even like me.
It would appreciate them and show them my adoration.
So maybe this isn't the perfect poem
and maybe it will never be written
but I want all those that have helped me so much
that if I could write the perfect poem,
it would shine with the stars and touch all your hearts.
It would make you laugh, cry and smile
but most of all it would show you all
how much I love you guys.

The Gypsy had seen it coming,
No way for her to prevent,
Again came unfair accusations,
Villagers ready to torment.
But she was ready to fight.
No way to escape peril now,
No more chance of flight.
But this was for her honor,
Simply saw no other way,
She readied for the battle
That windswept, autumn day.
So as the sun set,
And Villagers circled in,
She readied for the Undeserved,
Pain and Punishment to begin.
But as the first group,
Attempted to grab her,
The Corner of her eye,
Caught a smoke-grey blur.
Her heart stopped - It was him!
Into the fray jumped - Her protector!

Appeared like some sort of spectre.

Menacing Deep growling snarl,
Could this she be believing?

Hikaru and Kaoru had always been very close, closer than average brothers would be; So Kaoru thought it made sense that he could ask his niisan for anything, because they were close enough to understand each other in a way no one else could. He was confident that Hikaru would never be disgusted or angry with him, or anything else that might entail them having a long-term separation from each other. Hikaru would never outright walk away from him, they were twins, and twins stuck by each other no matter what. They were two of a kind, two peas in a pod, two halves of a whole - that had to count for something.
It was with this certainty in mind, that Kaoru walked into their shared bedroom that day to ask a favor of Hikaru; a very delicate one. If all didn't go as planned, their relationship could change dramatically. But as I said, Kaoru was confident the

That kind of beauty
can haunt a life
and ruin a man,
the incandescent taste of skin
so fair it flouts
a summer day
and taunts the bed clothes
as if to say
this is but a borrowed pleasure;
the supple lilt of hips
making wastrels of my senses
and savoring the scent
of flesh entrapping secrets
like a summer solstice;
and that last wave of wonder
puckered in a silken crescent
breaking over me

There will always be a second chance,
A take two
Another opportunity for success in life and romance
A hope to stop feeling blue
Nothing is lost forever
As long as friends stick together
We can conquer the world, my friend
We need to keep on going till we reach the end
We'll always have a plan B
Because people never run out of ideas
Please stay here with me
So we can go and be free
I need a soul to trust, to stick with throughout the night
One I can see as my knight
Run away with me without leaving a trail
No, we're too awesome together to fail

Come willingly to service.
Come embrace the lengthy arms
Of our loving God.
So he came, he served,
And he put forth all his faith,
And he took the wine and bread,
And sung to God.
And he prayed every night,
And forgiven of his sins,
He prayed for protection,
From his God.
And he prayed, and he sung,
As domestic life turned rough,
And he wondered, in his strife,
Tis the will of God.?
No older than fourteen,
Shattered were his dreams,
When he ran onto the streets,
Hoping to God.
He took relief in poison,
And he prayed for his forgiveness,
Or for any chance of saviour,
From his God.
Alone he was in prayer,
Cold, Hungry, in despair,
In rough territory, no repair,
He questioned God.
And so, on the streets alone,
With his poison, overthrown,
In the clutches of the cold,
He screamed to God.
Come and feel the torture,
Of a kid living on the streets,
Dying on the streets,
