Dying SlowlyI can't wait to escape and get a fresh startDying Slowly3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To get away from the place that's crushed my heart
The place where everything serves only as a reminder
Of a woman who could have been so much kinder
You see, looking back, everything here has led to something bad
Even the happiest memories eventually became something sad
Now the one hope that kept me going has been completely crushed
If I ever give these feelings a voice, it will remain hushed
What hurts the most is what this change implies
Each time I think about it I feel pain as tears fill my eyes
Not even my old coping methods are working any more
I feel so much more lost than I have ever felt before
What tops it all is that a previous struggle has returned
And every single morning I wake up I find myself more concerned
But this time, my haunted dreams will be my own weight to bare
Partly because, as pathetic as it sounds, I have no one with whom I can share
But I know I can't bring myself to keep on trying
Because deep down inside I kn

We are walking towards Mystic forest, where I saw a huge fire. By the time we arrived in Mystic forest, the entire forest was burnt to ashes. Nothing was left, but sadness. All the flowers were gone, and the trees were all destroyed. The liveliness that was once there died with the forest.
Ammo and I walked further into what was left of Mystic forest, finding more of what we saw before, ashes.
"I think we should leave there's nothing here" He said eager to leave
"We need to find out what caused it, and what if there are any survivors that are severely injured? We'd have to save them. We're Ink bloods that's what we do!" Even tho I don't want to be here just as much as him, we have to make sure that it was just an accident.
"You're right. You're always right. Tho I need to know " he was about to finish his sentence when we heard a small voice.

I woke up, and all I saw was white screen of nothing.
Where am I? Am I dead? Did I go the spirit world? So many questions are running though my mind at this moment.
I then got up and looked around. I then got up and went to get a fresh pair of clothes, I put on my jeans and I then grabbed my shirt. I took of the dirty one and noticed something different about my appearance. I was somehow taller, more muscular, and I have a tattoo!? I twisted my arm around to get a better look at it, it was a dragon. Was this the very same dragon we killed? It certainly looked like the dragon we killed; it even had the injuries from the fight.
"I'm glad you're feeling better" I turned my head to see who it was talking.
"It seems that within 24 hours you got a set of abs" Ammo pointed out. "I'm sure the ladies will love it!"
"Yeah if they like a guy with a Sirius anxiety disorder" I blurted, I hated that about myself, but it's not like I can change that about myself, that easily.

"Shh." He didn't listen to me.
"Wait, just real quick." I pleaded, my voice low as to not disturb the other people in line. He sighed, turning his head so he could watch me in the corner of his eye.
"What?" He asked rudely.
"What are we doing?" I ask him. He doesn't respond, but turns away. "Answer me." I demand.
"If you don't know then why are you here?" He quizzes me.
"I-...." I didn't want to admit to him that I don't remember anything but the line. "I don't know." I finally say it. it shouldn't have been that hard, but it took... a while. I don't know how long it's been. We haven't moved in line. Have we ever? I am so confused. He doesn't respond to me. "Tell me why we're here, please." I'm getting scared. He is silent for a long time.

Her muscles tightened instinctively and her breath caught her throat as her eyes jumped to the dark, cold, grey sky. But it was already gone.
Certainty settled into her mind, the hunt was on. The only question that stood; who was the predator and who was prey? Two roles that would stay unclear and undecided until the final moment. It was certainly hunting her, but this prey would not go quietly nor easily into Oblivion.
Her ears perked up immediately. Keenly waiting and listening, but she sat in absolute silence. An eerie stillness only broken by the dull breeze -- unafraid of what traveled in its winds -

Two years passed and I didn't see that beautiful girl ever again but all I could do was think about her How nice she was with me, her smile and her tenderness that made everyone around her want to hug her and never let go.
One day when I started school I finally saw her again She was still the same,she had the same long hair she had before, and she still made me feel in the clouds. Then when she saw me, she smiled in a tender way and waved. For a moment I was paralyzed, so nervous, and I couldn't help but blush and finally I waved back
It was recess time and my friends called me so I could play soccer with them but I ignored them, that way I could go for that girl that stole my heart one spring April night

"Jareth!" She screamed hoarsely. "I didn't mean it!" She stamped her foot so hard she thought the ground would crack under her. Shoving her fists into her eyes, Sarah sank to the floor against the cold stone wall and cried. Just cried until her stomach felt empty and her eyes like sand. She hadn't ever meant to hurt his feelings, she never meant to yell and scream...or end up crying. That day was fine, just dandy, until...well, until everything went wrong. To put it loosely. To hell in a hand basket. She mentally fired at herself, sniffing and combing her hair with her reddened fingers.

Eating cole slaw will make me sputter,
A sweaty foot, dog poop on the lawn,
Is that a wasp over there? That's it, I'm gone.
My fear of cellphones I cannot explain,
I'm scared of small children who always complain.
The horror of jello that melts in the heat,
That moment you realize it's "mystery meat".
With toothpaste and matches, the world is so scary!
Ever noticed, close up, most bugs are hairy?
The thought of pierced ears sets me into a tizzy,
Knowing germs are everywhere makes me feel dizzy,
Waking up to dog breath in the morning,
That kid who decides to bite without warning,
Backwash, mold, being sprayed by a skunk,
Comprehending that your favorite shirt shrunk,
When people notice you can't tell time,
Dreams about miss piggy's heinous crime,
Anxiety when you run out of soap,
The chance of falling when jumping rope,
Unidentified creature with glowing green eyes,
A math test that surely will bring your demise,
The upside down person who lives in

This time would be different, not quite like last year.
My house had no tree, no, there wasn't a trace
Not one tree to let him hit me in the face
The traps were more horrid, the torture more cruel,
Yes, I was determined to make my Christmas rule.
The fire was burning with coal from last year
Oh yes, my objective was perfectly clear.
All The presents, I'll take them, they'll all soon be mine.
As soon as the calendar hits Christmas time.
That fatso was done for, I'd not let him win
I bided my time with a horrible grin
For sixteen whole years I've had coal stacks to spare
After i failed last year, it was quite hard to bear.
But I was much smarter, a whole 'nother year

Zim was leaving his class, it was obvious that until he get home, the rain wouldn't stop for a long time. He has his glue layer, but he did not like the idea of getting all wet. So, he thought, why not go on the school bus?
He went past Tak, who was sifting through her locker. Tak he thought she was so annoying
She returned to Earth faster than Zim imagined she would have in fact, he really did not think she would come back at all, but she returned a few months after fighting with Zim. He was not worried about it, however, for now she just annoyed him with silly jokes. She showed no signs of making a plan, or something.
Zim noted that Tak was now following him.
"Good. She wants to annoy me again." He growled softly. Tak smiled, she had heard what he said, and felt more interested in trying to irritate Zim.

What do you do
When your world has nothing but chaos and pain
What do you do
When your life has been lived in vain
You've lost your only friend
And you have comfort only when you pretend
So in the midst of this horror
What do you do when you cannot see an end?
What did we do
To deserve this earth's most untimely end
What can we do
To fix this world and make our amends
There's nothing left
There's nothing we can do
So all I have left right here and now
Yet you are this hell's one and only angel
And you have given me hope
And when I'm lost in agony and I'm trembling and crying
Your love does help me cope
So maybe one day
We'll beat those enemies to the ground
We may be falling angels
But we haven't hit the ground
So I know, darling, as long as you're around
Our strength to kill this evil will finally be foundů
The Power of GriefHe had buried her himself, returning her broken lifeless body to the Bionis in Paradise Park, so in her eternal slumber she could look over Colony Nine as she had with Shulk and Reyn so many times. Squatting in front of her grave, he remembered her. Her laugh. Her smile. Her eyes. They were all gone. Forever. Fresh tears began to well in his electric blue eyes. The realization of how much he had lost, how much he would never see again... A tear escaped one eye. And another. And another. Soon the tiny trickle had transformed into a massive downpour. Raw sobs were wrenched from his lungs as the raw grief over-whelmed him. Colony Nine heard him. Especially a certain spiky red-haired Defence Force soldier. Upon hearing those heart-wrenching sobs he abandoned his post, running at a sprint through the Residential District and up into Paradise Park.The Power of Grief3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

It was a 30-minutes ride to the house I rented. The landlord gave me the keys right away. The place looked like shit, but I didn't really care. It was huge and half empty, just what I was looking for.

Is like living this life without aim
Like longing for perfection
Infinity-deep loneliness I am into
This doom is mine.
I call out your name in vain
You are no more only pain.
I speak to myself in silence
Until despair is pestilence.
Until the night steals me.
Is this the moment we've been waiting for?
I am the Champion of Dreams before you
Words are lies and facts are more
All is darkened, nothing's true
The champion of no glee.
The mistress of magic hue.
This doom is mine.
In my darkest hour and my deepest despair
I stand tall before you all, I can still breathe air.
I am the Champion of dreaming and living.
I walk alone again against this feeling,
Vivid and deathly.
Answer me, come to me
Mine is the eternity
The dreamless infinity
This song of my destiny.
This doom is mine.
Champion of Dreams,
I whine alone

The young irken male ducked, avoiding several lazers from both the SIR units and the Meekrob. He crawled amongst the debris, searching for his fallen friend. He soon came across his partner, and helped the injured girl to her feet. The two of them escaped their destroyed base through a hidden tunnel, arriving at their underground emergency bunker.
The girl pulled away, struggling to stand on her own. Her dress was ripped to pieces, deep gashes all over her torso and legs. She gazed at her friend, whose face had been cut up in the melee. She growled. "I swear...it's not over..."
She fell to the floor.
Wyvern sat on his cot, watching Tenn leap at another simulation. He was quite a rarity by irken terms. Most irkens had red eyes, some with brown, and a select few with purple. The rarest eye color among irkens were blue, and Wyvern's were a beautiful baby blue. The last known irken
