The secret life
of elm and oak
and thin white poplars -
on a winter night,
grazing the moon
like tapers in December.
I smell earth -
peat and cedar
and the indulgent bulge
crafting the air
like a smith
lost in his work.
Chestnuts bear an offering
and the yearning pall
of pine scents the sky
till it's thick with resin.
And they gather
with boughs and limbs
bent like priests at play,
roots tight as ancient drums
to ruminate on stories,
sinewed in fragrant bark
making merry where
the green bends back

Chapter three: A Mysterious Wanderer
The moon shone brightly across the townscape. A figure sat leaning on the wall of a worn-out house. He was counting the stars. After a rumbling sound, he put a hand on his stomach, 'so hungry'.
He had a weary smile on his lips. When was the last time he had slept? He couldn't even remember.
"Time to find dinner," He spoke to no one in particular.
The boy stood up looking at homeless people around him. They were huddled in small groups near one big fire source. There was a dozen of them in total; elderly, middle aged and even children. He preferred to stay

The Words I Didn't Mean
Your last steps seemed to echo
While I watched you walk away
You're leaving me in our love's shadow
And all I can feel is a piece of me break away
The shock starts to sink in
Every pore is conquered
A fissure begins within
I'm torn asunder
Liquid memories drip from my face
My heart will always remember this kind of pain
The love that was shown on this day will remain in vain
I didn't know how much passion could weigh
Or the damage it could do when it betrays
Fused with the words that I never even wanted to say
Compassionless by nature / A lonesome torture
Unloved by liars / Sought by manipulators
Breathing in shards / Tearing out hearts
Caught off-guard / Soul is scarred
The regrets won't let me breathe
The thick tears protect me from what I don't want to see
This fresh wound over my chest is where your place used to be
Pathetically rooted by my knees
I reach for you through the debris
Even though there's no one who can salvage me

Sasuke's hands were balled into fists. He thought about beating his teammate — his almost former teammate — into the the deserted Konoha street just to make his point. He was leaving. He'd made his decision. There was nothing Naruto could do to stop him.
And spouting praise of Konoha was only infuriating him more. Because he knew Naruto was a hypocrite.
Sasuke tightened his fist again, muscles surging with a deep desire to knock him off his feet. It was the middle of the night after all, no one would hear him…. But instead, Sasuke reined in his anger and settled for circling the blond.
"How can you, of all people, try to talk me out of it? Look what they've done to you! Look how they've treated you!" Sasuke's voice rose dangerously as he paced. "How can you tell me to stay when this is the place where my family was slaughtered? And no one, not a single person, is out looking for the

Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
When the time will come,
When our hearts finally meet.
In the past,
My heart had been broken,
Broken so many times,
That the pieces of glass, Were so small,
They couldn't be pieced together.
You did something that was
You gave me a new heart,
A heart without any bruises,
A heart without any bends,
You gave me a heart,
That is so brave,
It glows bright,
So bright, That I am no longer afraid,
Afraid of my fears from the past.
In the past,
I would have never thought that such a thing,
Would be possible,
But that is love,
Love is something that amazes us,
Its powers are so unparalleled,
That we can't even begin to understand,
What lies behind the word, Love.
It is so powerful it gives us something that escapes us, Bravery.
Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
Hoping to find the answer,
To what Love truly is.
The person I will love,
Look at me,
Our appearance may be different,
Our levels of Bravery are differ

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you are currently watching a movie with one John Egbert. It's an action flick, typical of his tastes and he seems really into it. The floor is cold and hard but you sit there anyways, briefly you wonder why you aren't on the couch or similarly nice surface, but your thoughts are disrupted when John jumps up to start cheering and acting alongside the actors on screen. A smirk raises the corner of your lip slightly as John moves about.
He punches the air a few times and shouts. "Aw yeah! Karkat this is the best part!" He floats a little and kicks the air, "All hope seems lost, but then he uses his ultra-secret battle technique to defeat almost all of them!" John imitates the hero's in the movie. You're highly amused and not even watching the movie, John is being far more entertaini
Little ThingsThere were little things about Dave that really stuck out to you when you two became official.Little Things3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
First off, he's extremely possessive. It cute sometimes, whenever he sneaks his hand into yours when he catches someone looking or how he slips an arm around your waist when you're approached by someone new. Of course, it can be annoying too, like when you have to meet Karkat in the morning and Dave turns off your alarm so you sleep in with him. And he always leaves marks in the most obvious of places where it'd be impossible to hide. He once even kissed your cheek with no-smudge lipstick so it wouldn't come off for the rest of the day.
Secondly, he loves physical contact. Rose says it's because he got very little love as a child, but you think it kind of ties in with his possessiveness. In public or alone, he always like to at least keep the smallest of contact between fingers brushing against each other, or feet nudging together. And sometimes (read: most of the time) he prefers to drape hi

Sebastian stood impatiently in the dining parlor, the food he had prepared this morning sat neatly on the table, cooling as the minute went by. He didn't know if Ciel still wanted to have breakfast. Did the boy not feel well when he woke up? Why did he refuse to let him into the bedroom? Could his master have developed a terrible case of chickenpox overnight and did not wish to be seen? But if that's the case, he should be at his side assisting the poor boy right now; if those bothersome blisters burst, it could leave unpleasant scars on his master's milky skin (or so he had read from a medical book ever since his young master's life-threatening asthma attack occurred last autumn). However, considering the boy was already thirteen years of age, he should have already experienced his case of chickenpox. But what other reason

"Just you watch Ciel, Claude will beat your feeble butler!" Alois says smuggly, giving Ciel a sidelong look.
Ciel pays no attention to Alois as the two masters look down from thier seats and onto the rediculousy large chessboard that sits below them.
"Are you ready to dance?" Claude says smoothly, a small smile etching onto his lips, taking a dancer's pose.
"Of corse," Sebastian replies, smileing a bit wider--suddenly revealing the tableware dangerously pointing from his fingers.
"well then, let's begin..." claude slips from his stance, adjusting his glasses. "Sebastian Michaelis, you are deffinetly NOT one hell of a butler"
Sebastian's eyes grow wide.Oh this means war...
Sebastian slips from his stance as well. " Well what do i care what a disgusting spider thinks, i could easily squash you with a butter knife." Smug smile.

"I now pronounthe you huthband and huthband," Sollux recited, nodding to both John and Karkat. The Cancer was trying to keep his poker face, but it was failing in many aspects, making him appear locked in an expression on mild shock and anger. John, biting his lip, looked nervously from Sollux to Karkat, his fingers working on the cuff of his tuxedo. The strain was palpable between them, every moment more tense than the last. "You may kith the huthband."
And they're both...
John closed his eyes, almost wishing it was all a dream. Kiss Karkat? Here? In front of Sollux? The Gemini had his camera ready, smiling for all he was worth as Karkat reluctantly turned to face John. Here it was; the final moment. One kiss and they were done. John leaned in, expecting Karkat to do the same. Karkat had other plans, though, and quickly diverted what would certainly be a disgracing action with a swift slap just as the flash went off

When you wake up, head rested on your sad excuse for a computer desk, you get spammed with messages from Rose and Jade.
