It runs through my veins
Like liquid fire
Causing so much pain,
Yet bringing such joy
Flowing through my muscular heart
And stright into my thoughtful brain
Giving me life
It is the blood of time
Carrying me out of the past
And propelling me into the unending future.

I am now dry
no emotion to show
tired of this life
and taking every blow
it's taken my all
to get where I am today
and yet that's all it needd
to change my world gray
I've run out
of needle and thread
I can no longer stitch
the wounds that have bled
My heart's so complex
not JUST worries and cares
if you can't find the door
'climb in through the tears
it's taken a toll
as the years have gone by
I'm a wondering soul
who doesn't know how to fly
So will you take the challenge
to stitch up these things
will you be my Angel
and help me, be my wings
The GirlShe lives in a fantasy world in her mindThe Girl9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
where life is so easy and everything's fine
She knows she can't stay there, but she sure as hell tries
It's better than facing her own web of lies
She hides from her problems and runs from her fears
She drowns herself every night in her tears
Some call her a coward, some call her insane,
I'd like to see them take one half of her pain
She runs away,
not knowing which way to go
She tries so hard,
but she just can't let go
And all of her lies
are getting harder to hide
And nobody knows...
That she's dying inside
She knows that suicide isn't the way,
though she thinks of it at least once every day.
Too proud and afraid to face her own mistakes,
She just hates herself more with every heart she breaks.
She runs away,
not knowing which way to go
She tries so hard,
but she just can't let go
And all of her lies
are getting harder to hide
And nobody knows...
That she's dying inside.
These thoughts just fill her head
She thinks she's better off dead
A Tethered KnightA Tethered Knight11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was but the eternal break of dawn and the velvet hues of the passing night
Were richly infused with the spreading spears of the golden arching sunlight
And as I awoke to this dreamlike landscape over the horizon before my very sight
The chill autumn air yawned and the drowsy spell of sleep still cradled me tight
Upon my ears now played the rousing sound of little angels in sweet song all around
As I slowly stirred to my stony feet under the shade of a mighty oak tree to which I was bound
My raw hands clutching the cool bark, my feet struggling to balance on the ground
My naked back hugged the tree as I rose, the tethered ropes choking what small hope I had found
I the knight of heart felt sacrifice was like the graceful Icarus whose wings were but broken
By my soaring flight to the summit of foolish indiscretion where my many sins were thus spoken
And the gods of mount vengeance took my very flame away and threw me down to be awoken
Here thus riddled in the glory of the resurrected

Hey! Where are you going?
Sorry Ichigo, I have to go back to the Soul Society. Youll be okay right?

She didnt wait for the rest of his answer. She used her zanpaktou to open a portal. After that she was gone. Leaving the spiky orange haired Soul Reaper by himself.

People act different too, some people ignore things, some people gossip behind backs, and some people outwardly express their hate.

If you, the American, ever travel to France, never ask where the bathroom is because French bathrooms are entirely different from American bathrooms. Ou est la salle de bain? would lead you directly to a room with a bathtub and a sink. Never ask for the salle de bain, say instead, Ou sont les toilettes? La toilette is in its own special room along with nothing else except for papier hygiénique, toilet paper. Rien, nothing. No magazines, no sink, just une toilette.
The first thing the American needs to know about French toilets is that they may look exactly like American toilets. Do not let this fool you. Toilets are dirty creatures full of, nevermind.
At first glance, the French toilet is the same as the American toilet. It has a lid and a seat, very familia

Search my eyes.
Look long and deep.
search the shadows as the creep
across the dark recesses
because anyone's guess is
as good as mine
when they ask me why.
Search the sunbeams,
and the broken dreams.
Sift through the pieces
Left lying in the creases
of the folds across my mind field.
Watch your step.
It's a long way down
Look deeper inside
Each little cranny I used to hide
Each fortress and parapet
Way down as deep as you can get
in castles and moats
and little sail boats
skipping across the bay.
Look in my eyes and say
Because it's all there
and I don't care
if it all breaks and tears
and the tears roll free
and send me sinking back in misery.
Because this is my chance
someone asked me to dance and I'll not say no
so on I go,
up to the moon
never to come back down again.
So I ask you to look inside
I've got nothing to hide anymore.
So look me in the eye and deny it

The Care and Feeding of Your New Pet Drow!
Thank you for shopping at the Underdark Exotic Pet Store! Remember- mind flayers, drow, svirfneblin, deurgar, aboleths; whatever you fancy, we have it!
Your drow may start out small –common sizes range from three to five inches- but soon it will grow up to a ten inches tall! Remember that your drow needs space, so keep it in a proper sized cage.
Your new drow and you!
Your relationship with your new drow will start as soon as you see that special one in the pet store window, but by now you should have brought him –or her- home. Carefully remove your new drow from the carrying case by lifting him or her out by the scruff of the neck with your fingers. Gloves are advised, as your new drow will likely be disoriented and may react with violence and/or darts, knives, scimitars, short swords, polearms, longswords, and snake whips.

I try so hard to keep breathing,
The gun in my hand looks so good.
It's as though life lost its meaning,
But in my mind I keep seeing you.
I fall on my knees and I keep begging please,
Why won't life just go away?
Still I lay down each evening and shake off the feeling,
Knowing I'm lying with you.
You are my world,
You are my life,
Without you there is no light.
I need you to live,
I need you to breathe,
Without you there is no me.
And so the gun falls,
Kisses felt, tears roll.
Your voice softly calls,
"I love you" and that's all I need to know.

Let the river wash it out the door,
Hold my breath until i am new again.
Carve a sign for my present,
A cross for my past.
And lets hope there is no future,
lets just get high on dope and pray i die.
Crazy hallucinations swim in my mind,
Drowning in a fierce activity,
Drowning in a pool of something that could be.

I would only be falling for you,

Why live for something i could care less for.

With stable legs they'd lead him far
Engaged with his goals.

Bracing tighter for the drive to kick in.

So sure and confident, I admire that of course
Just, if it still hurts, don't gag on our negatives
They'll come valuable for a road ahead
To conquer our fear to face.

You laced your hand in mine
and I watched the morning sun while you slept in my arms.
I heard you gently breathing.
It lifted from your lips like a contented sigh from the kiss of sleep
and I reveled in the warmth of your body against mine.
But I dared not close my eyes
I feared the cruel trick of dreams' illusions
and held you all the closer lest you be gone when I awoke.
After all, when your dreams come true
what then are left but the nightmares of loosing what you have
and the pain of watching them go?
By and by exhaustion took me from my vigil
and I saw you dying in my arms begging to be saved
asking why I had failed you.
With a start I woke fearing you'd be gone,
just another figment of a love starved mind,
but you held me and told me it was just a dream.
And in that moment I understood.
For the first time
I was not alone.

Viola averted her eyes, trying to ignore the ball of apprehension growing in her belly. She gazed up at the winding staircase. Her tongue felt like a strip of dried leather and it was difficult to form words around it. "How much longer until we're there?"
Mrs Casket stopped in her tracks and raised the lantern. Her hair was pinned back and greying at the temples. In the dull light her eyes looked almost black, glittering like a beetle's shell.

There was silence. Not even a wind blew on this day of mourning. The heavens opened, a soul was allowed in, and in exchange a sheet of rain befell the city of Futatsu. The mourning family gone, a lone figure steps in front of the newly placed grave, tears running freely down his face as he simply looks down in disbelief, his lower lip trembling as he tries to come to terms with the name written on the cold hard surface, shining through the harsh, cold, damp rain.
"You said you'd never leave me." A shy whisper speaks from the mouth of the figure. Knees trembling, he loses his strength and kneels before the lone grave, his soul feeling tattered and lost.
