PsychosisWhat is this fit of so Delphian a kind?Psychosis4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The bleeding conscience of a broken mind,
A reprieve of sorts, I'd kill to find,
But what is artistry to the blind?
Where are those places I used to haunt?
Where is my dream, my nightly jaunt?
Where is my pride, that sin I'd flaunt?
Why does it all tip at grim and daunt?
The abrasion of ardor, seemeth not wrong?
For it takes from a man, his tale, his song,
As the masses all romp to normalcy's gong,
Sans life, sans death, yet exist for so long.
This urge, this impetus to reverse the scales,
This belief in fiction when all else fails,
This inferno that burns up Satan's entrails,
This carnage of ration, white tie and tails.
Tell me my dear, do you want to go away to a place,
Where chaos and entropy rule over order and grace?
Where laughter and tears ceaseth for nights and days,
Where we elope our fears and so not a soul prays.
I cannot bear the tumult of pleasure and pain,
To follow my heart or subsist by thy brain,
I depart on this sojou
A Soldier's LoveThey told her to refuse. To never give in. Nothing good can come of him. From him. All she'll receive is pain and anguish and suffering. Her joy would only be momentary. It wouldn't last long.A Soldier's Love4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Nothing good would come marrying a soldier.
But how? How could she? She knew what she felt. Even now.
An eternal vow.
And as she stood upon his grave, the words, those blade-sharp words echoed through her mind. It came with the emptiness. And along them, the memories as well. Both happy and sad.
Unwillingly, almost automatically, she thought back to the beginning of their love. His persistence to win her over, to claim her as his own. How others would penetrate her mind about promises of death, of pain and of being left alone.
She remembered her confusion amidst her joy of his company. How she fought with her own happiness and responsibilities. And how others meddled in the crossfire. She traveled back to the sleepless nights filled only of thoughts of him. The times she felt wrong and

More boreal than wintertide,
While fireplaces can warm my palms,
Can their embers thaw my soul?
Can they bring back a blithe memory?
Or a recollection of a long lost heyday,
Solicitously saved, oh so cautiously cached,
So I may call upon it on at a pluvial time,
And as I concede to this immedicable disease,
It is curious, to be cheered by one's own enemies,
The jarring repercussion of this heinous malady,
Make my rivals too afflicted to make me bleed,
Make me a shadow, a phantasm, a sprite,
Oh make me an onyx blot in the umbral night,
Let me be torn from the binding pages of history,
And forgotten by the wrinkled brow of time,
For a life without companions, consorts and crones,
Is but death, deprived of its placidity,
It is a laggard descent, I am going insane,
When I long for love just as I long for pain,
But I endure the lack of desire and despair,
And continue with my poverty of amour and zeal,
Whilst my frenzied heart beats,
But I, try as I may, cannot f

It was biting into me, its invisible teeth seeping into my skin and stealing any warmth I desperately clung to. The warmth of the American summer was a bittersweet memory as the cold surrounded me, trapped me, and slowly began to suffocate me. Its disturbed fingers ran across my face, caressing me, drawing me closer with the promise of a gentle release, but at the cost of a terrifying, unyielding death. It mocked me. The wind seemed to join in with the ridicule, swirling around and around as I struggled to keep moving through the trees, mist and snow.
I was truly and hopelessly lost.
'Hey! Hey, over there!'
I shot around, my nose numb and rifle raised.
'Whoa there, Private! We're friendlies!'
I watched two men walking towards me. They wore the uniform of the 101st airborne division, the shape of their helmets and glint of their M1 Carbine rifles showing me all I needed to know. They were on my side
The Suicide DreamThere's blood on the floor,The Suicide Dream4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A cold hand still leaning on the closed door,
The echo of a painful shout still overcome,
Imprinted in the empty sight,
The image of a purpose that was too soon gone.
Tangled bloody hair,
Of a person that decided no more can bear,
Tears like crystals still resting on the dead face,
The soundtrack of a film,
The scream of lost innocence,
On a black and white screen.
Suppressed words that cleaved a heart,
Broken promises and lies,
One more soul tore apart,
A person drown in useless cries,
Bloody, bruised wrist,
The result of the decision - no more can go on like this.
A peaceful grin,
Of a person that in the ocean of despair couldn't anymore swim,
Is frozen and distorted,
A blade, a stain of blood,
Life away has faded.
Like in a dream,
I see the bruised, dead face,
I hear a scream,
On the floor I see a bloody trace,
Snippets of a jumble film.
Another person broke down,
Took away by the whirling waves of the suicide dream,
Another person decided this world is m
Forgive meI am sorry I hurt you really badForgive me4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am sorry for making you sad
I regret knowing always
I knew we would have this kind of days
I tried to forget but it seems to me
that I cannot describe how much you mean to me
You will never forget me because I hurt you
I will never forget you because I love you
All of the mess that I made makes me feel sick
I really do not know why I was such a dick
I tried to apologize but It was too late
I guess that was just our fate
I am sorry for hurting you so much
I hope you don't leave me, and stay in touch
I know you probably won't forgive me but still
I love you, and I always will
You are important and I need you in my life
Although, I cut your heart with my knife
Even a knife wouldn't describe
How much my words hurt
I don't know If you will forgive me or not
But I want you to know that I love you, A lot.
BenjaminI don't know why you were taken awayBenjamin3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You were so innocent
Waiting patiently in darkness
You never committed any sins
"God, give me a brother!"
I pleaded before bed
Every night until my wish
Was half-heartedly granted
A pang in my chest pairs with
Salty tears in my eyes
I came back to hear news
That came as the worst surprise
So many cry and ask God
"Why do you take away lives
If you love us so much?"
Here I sit, painfully deprived
Ashes in my parent's room
I remember your small urn
Even though young
I was aware you were burned
I sat in my room and cried
I felt guilty and blamed myself
My dad cried that night, too
He bothered with no stealth
He came into my room
And in raw emotion
He admitted he missed you too
A father's devotion
If I sit on my bed
Even today I cry
I'm stripped raw
For you I would die
The injustice God allows
Is worse than all others
Innocence is rewarded
With a hopeless mother
I want to hold you
And say it's alright
But you're a ghost
I can't kiss you good night

The police station door opened to the early morning frost to reveal a monolith of a man. He escorted a much smaller, skinny girl whose face is all but hidden beneath a river of long black hair and enormous glasses. She marched stiffly towards the waiting limousine, her scowl matching the giant beside her.
The ride home is not a pleasant one.
The two passengers sat side-by-side in the back of the limo. The man, who's patched and frizzy black hair scraped the car's roof, exhales and doesn't bother to look at his daughter before speaking.
The girl didn't move. She sat rim-rod straight in her seat, staring resolutely ahead. She had learned not

Lunch Break and a Can of Worms
It's often been said it's best to separate work from home. And yet, there's a surprising number of people out there who decorate their office so it's more like their home. And then there's that number of people who fill their offices with stuff that would make their Grannies cry. Or maybe just look at them like they'd grown an extra index finger on the side of their head. Some people just can't handle knowing there's an orangutan bikini calendar next to a photo of the family dog.

Despicable Me Too Ch. 8As the parent-child dance was scheduled for that Saturday, it came around rather quickly. Apparently it was supposed to be at least a little formal, so the day before, everyone had gone out and bought a nice outfit to wear.

Before they left for the school, the girls busied themselves making sure their hair looked right, while Vector and Jayden waited, ready, on the couch, wondering why girls always took so long to get ready. After a while they came out into the main room, ready to go.
Vector swept his gaze across all of them.

The voice wafted through the shining white fortress, though no one stirred. Its two occupants, a villain and villainess by the names of Vector and Matrix (or, Victor and Corinne Perkins, legally) were currently dozing together on the bright orange couch in the living room, the TV playing in the background. However, a loud buzz from the doorbell jolted them awake. They sat up, rubbed their eyes, and stared up at the TV, now displaying the security camera footage. Two young girls stood staring into one of the cameras.
"Oh, that must be the cookies I ordered!" Vector said, jumping up from the couch to let the girls in. Corinne followed.
Once the girls were inside they began to unload the wagons they had been towing with them, counting off as they did.
"So, that's four Choco-Swirlies, four Toffee Totes, four Mini Mints, four Caramel Clumpies, and eighteen Coco-Nutties " one of the girls read off her order sheet. "You guys planning on living off these after surviving 2012 or s

You see, I really struggled with this chapter...painfully. The words and characters wouldn't cooperate for me except in snippets, and the dual whammy of family/personal and health problems didn't help much. There were times when I was either too sick or too sad to write.
So, I'm kind of proud of myself for finishing this chapter.
And, on another note: The story format for parts of this chapter and the next few are inspired by the story-telling style Scott Beatty and David Ross used for the comic book 'Batman:Gotham Knights' issue # 42. (yes, I'm a Batman lover). This particular issue dealt with telling an almost month-long story in only 22 pages-and it was done beautifully. This tiny comic book managed to convey the ups and downs, frustrations and resolutions of several people tied together by a single problem. This feat was accomplished by using only one page for each day,

Margo lay awake, staring at the somewhat blurry ceiling. She could tell that Agnes was already asleep by the way she let out a little snore every third breath, just as she knew that Edith was still awake. Her eight-year-old sister had something on her mind, judging by how still she was.
She knew that her sister never let things get to her during the day, when she could distract herself with activities or mischief. At night, when she had to be still and sleep, those worries and fears would creep over her and she would inevitably wake up Margo to talk about them. Usually it was about some cold remark made by Miss Hattie.
Margo was uncommonly smart for her age, a small fact her mother had loved to brag to other parents about. She understood things that were, in the opinion of most adults, beyond her understanding. So she had understood within minutes of meeting Miss Hattie that it was up to

But suddenly, things got very exciting.Capture, Cookies, And Caring5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The lights suddenly went out in the living room, along with the TV. Everything descended into silence, save for the sound of footsteps somewhere in the room.
"Who's there?" Vector called into the darkness.
"I said who's there?" Vector repeated. "Show yourself!"
This time, nothing was said in reply, but the sound of a gas being dispersed from a small gun could be heard, and shortly thereafter a strange smell. Vector felt the room spinning, and soon collapsed onto the couch.
The next thing he knew, he was in a metal chair in a gray room, looking straight at a very familiar black jacket.

El precio de la libertad es la eterna vigilancia.
El sexo es la mejor forma de expresar mi libertad encarcelada.

Buscamos la libertad, pero ella siempre está. Lo difícil es descubrirla e ir a su encuentro.
Los límites de mi libertad están más allá del espacio, recorriendo hasta los lugares imaginarios.
Pero la libertad en la que vivimos es una encadenada, resulta que estamos atados de tobillos y muñecas, ¿cómo se puede caminar y, al fin volar, de esta manera? La libertad es un valor inalcanzable, a menos de convertirnos en una anarquía y cuando pienso eso, creo que me gusta estar entre cadenas.

Ghosts roamed the streets when the fogs rolled into London. Men, women and children grew quiet and moved slowly, because they couldn't see more than half a block in front of them, and half of the things they did see weren't actually there. After decades of walking through the pea soup, it was still difficult to overcome the natural, human fear of dark corners and shadowy figures. Even the light from the street lamps along the wide street of Piccadilly fractured in the haze.
Kagome had prowled in the dark for far too long to fear the shadows - the few things that could hunt her didn't bother to hide. Instead, the fog provided anonymity, protecting her from stares that followed her whenever she left the East. If not for the acrid smell and the yellow film that clung to every surface, including the lungs of every Londoner, she could have appreciated this ethereal world created by the burning of soft coal. At the moment, she wished she could walk in the fog rat

It was late, far too late to be walking along a sidewalk lit every twenty-five feet with a pool of golden light from a nearby streetlamp, but that was exactly what Sarah Williams was doing. Her low heels clicked on the cement and her skirt made a soft whooshing sound as it moved with her legs. She hadn't intended to stay so late, but sometimes, she got caught up at work. There was always so much to do and so little time to do it in at the bakery where she worked as one of the managers. It was her duty to order inventory and handle the financial side of things, which was what she'd been doing tonight month-end was always a killer.
A brisk breeze blew down the street and Sarah shivered and picked up her step. She didn't notice the streetlamp behind her wink out, but she did notice when the one in front of her did. She stopped shortly and sucked in a gasp of cold air. The darkness pressed in on her from all sides and time seemed to s
