and despite my many doubts
i smiled at your hate
with your head down low
you stand on the street corners
and sell your own soul
every day, night
i think of nothing but you
and of your darkness
i became the beast
and did what i never would:
what you did to me
we used to be so...
until you made the choice to...
until you said that...

caresses a thigh, then thrusts
its tongue like a knife.

the street salivates with rain,
swallows the leaves

a boy eyes his flank,
an old man trades silver

the butcher tears his apron
as the clouds gnash above.
she rubs salt against his flesh,
kneads wine into his back, stiff

he finally softens:
contented to be

Whispering soothing words to her.
Our young artist looks up to the sky
As he translates it to the paper.
The stars swirl and dance for him
And the buildings sway with them.
The twinkling of the stars descend
Precious words to him.
The wind blows strong upon the hill,
Dancing with the trees.
The artist records all that he hears
Along with what he sees.
He looks at it, his masterpiece,
Keeps it against his will
The stars are confident in him
And the night will not be still.
At the time his art is seen as trash,
But the night can see beyond.
One day his paintings will be known.
Of him, art will be fond.
Secrets Are Best Hidden (read description) David liked secrets. Not necessarily gossip, but just things that he wouldn't have known about people or just secrets in general. Any secret did him well; secret passages, secret places in games... you name it, he'll like it. Though, there was one secret that he knew and wanted; a book that his sister kept in her room. He wasn't so sure if it was a diary or something else, but he saw it with her a couple of times. He wanted to sneak into her room and get it, but he was afraid of getting caught and facing such consequences from his sister and parents. He will get the book, eventually.Secrets Are Best Hidden (read description)3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
His sister had a performance at school and her parents were going to go watch her. However, they gave David a choice of whether or not if he wanted to go.
His mom called from downstairs, "David, are you going to come with us to watch your sister's show?"
He opened his mouth, about to automatically blurt out 'yes', but then he thought, "This would be an exc
-Break Down-Take a look beyond my surface,-Break Down-5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beyond my pretty clothes and my done up hair,
Beyond my gleaming eyes and cheerful smile.
Take a look deep inside of me
And tell me what you see.
Do you see a soul slowly turning dark in color?
Dying and decaying, becoming a black void.
Look at my heart,
See how it's barely staying together?
Trace all the cracks that seep to the core.
One more blow and surely it will shatter.
Linger a second inside of me,
Feel the desperation and my all consuming loneliness.
Feel the tension that has built up inside of me,
Everything is waiting for me to break.
Can you see the flickering light?
That is all the hope I have left
That someone will come and save me.
Will you save me?
Will you take the time to look beyond the surface
And notice how I'm slowly disappearing?
Metagross ReportMetagross (the Iron Leg Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Steel/Psychic-type Pokémon found among mountainous terrain and forested areas within the Unova region as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Immensely powerful and utterly devastating on the battlefield, Metagross are physical nightmares capable of reducing most other opponents to dust with their tremendous power and monstrous Meteor Mash attack. If you're unlucky enough to have to fight one of these beasts, make sure that you bring the best special attacks you can muster; if you try to attack with any sort of physical attacks, the only thing you'll get for your efforts is a star-studded punch guaranteed to sending you flying to the stars!Metagross Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Much as Metang are made from two Beldum, Metagross are made when either a single Metang obtains enough energy to replicate itself and fuse the copies or when two Metang manually fuse together. This grants Metagross a total of four individual brains linked together by synchro

Wires criss-cross like spilt vermicelli hung in air.
Cats prowl in narrows, dust rises, and the day

Boy With Hollow BonesOnce upon a time,Boy With Hollow Bones4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
not too long ago,
there lived a hollow boy with hollow bones.
Hollow smiles hollow eyes,
hollow fingers and toes,
but most of all, he had a hollow soul.
You may not know him,
he wasn't quite known.
I pity the boy with the hollow bones.
He had no one left, or so he did think,
while he laid on his bed, his phone started to ring.
He couldn't get up because before she could call,
the hollow boy took a knife, and ended it all.
What the boy didn't know was that someone was there,
to tell him she loved him, to tell him she cared.
She called barely too late, and wouldn't you know
She became the girl with hollow bones
On Wearing Black -When I dieOn Wearing Black -4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
don't dress me up.
Don't pick me out
a pretty dress
or manicure my nails.
Paint me bright and wild,
Paint me like an empty canvas -
Give life to my dead skin.
Sapphire, Yellow, Indigo.
I want there to
be dirt on my feet
to show them where I've been,
I want you to draw me
big fat circles
round all the scars
Let them see my trophies,
the broken skin,
Say no prayers about my body,
I have no need for hymns.
Wrap me not in muslin,
I won't be a cemetery stone,
Another name on another row.
Please.. Let me die, how I would have lived.
FlyHer nervous teeth bit through the skin in her lower lip and she walked towards the neighborhood, and she began to bleed.Fly4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She sucked in her lip like she had something to say but she was trying not to cry as hard as she felt she would if she let go.
Her wings were clipped off with her lover's loss of faith and everything was over, and everything was hurting, and empty, and anger. She couldn't fly in the pink air anymore, and she crashed to the ground with the rest of them, the hurt and the lonely.
Her heart may never mend but her wings could grow back, they could with someone's love, a friend, anyone, to care for her, to tell her that it'll be okay.
She's all alone though.
She hasn't eaten in a week and her stomach is concave and her back is lined with her ribs and spine, and she looks broken.
Underneath her blue eyes are gray and sunken circles above her hallowed cheek bones. She's becoming ill.
And she's all alone.
Everyone "cares", everyone is "concerned" and everyone is "there"

With all the strings attached
With you jerking the wires
Making all of us dance,
I don't want to be your puppet
I don't want to be your slave
You issue our your orders
You expect us to obey
But i will resist
I will refuse with all my heart
I have nothing to lose
I will resist
I will refuse
I know who you are
I even know your name
you're the devil and you bring me down
I'm getting sick of this game
I will cut these ropes
that keep you in command
where will now stand
or will you now fall
now that you're out of control?

I could never say
The words I would never dare to speak
Of your eternal beauty

My courage breaks
And the words just fade away
Onto the paper
Words I could never say
LostStumbling from one lover to the next,Lost4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wander in this strange twilight zone
You've stranded me in.
My heart is just as heavy with your departure
As it was the night you pulled out of my driveway
For the last time,
Your eyes shining with an emotion
I understood too late.
Now, I reach out in the dark,
Hoping that whoever takes my hand
Can somehow pull me hard enough
So that I may stand and leave this place,
Tainted by your beautiful ghost.
But every hand fits wrong,
And with every new, eager lover
That tries to help me up,
I remember more clearly
How perfectly your fingers
Would intertwine with mine,
And how serenely I would look
At our touching silver rings,
Then tip my head upward
To drink of your kisses
And become intoxicated.
What I would give to have you here, love.
There are times I think
I have finally managed to forget you,
When suddenly, I stumble across a memory
Of you falling asleep in my arms,
And the raw, aching tenderness returns,
I can't stand this plac

I listen to love songs
Just to replay what i once felt
Back to when i thought we would last long.
I feel a rush for a second
then reality hits me
Feels like i was bludgeoned.
I need to find something to set me free.
Where is the key?
the key to the door that will let me leave
from this depressing sea
To once more believe.
that there's a chance for me.
