I should have known
of your demise
You have been the loan
I never deserved
Karma has had me served
I am gone for good
Didn't think I ever would
but here I stand, alone
Only the wind will hear me moan
and only he can give me sympathy
Do you even still remember me?
or how you and me used to be "we"?
I still thought this could all go well
but our private heaven has turned to hell
And all the love songs that we sang
turned to ashes, gone out with a bang
The PullWhen I was younger, someone showed me a video gametoo weird for me, but it made her laugh, and she was pretty. You played as this little guy with a squishy hammer for a head, and you rolled a sticky ball around in front of you. As you rolled it, things got stuck until the ball was gigantic. And then... I don't know. I don't remember the point of the game, nor do I remember the name.The Pull2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But that image comes back to me every time I am anxious. I am that little person running around, pushing a ball, and things stick to it. Only they aren't cows or trees or parts of buildings: they are things that make me nervous. The attention of people. My sparse resume. The way I can never look someone in the eye when we first meet.
Oh. And I don't have a squishy hammer for a head.
Regardless, today is like that. I've talked to too many people and some weird man had told me he was my father and my mother was on the back of a book with a different name but the same damn face.
While I was walking home,
Beautiful WonderlandThere's a world you need to seeBeautiful Wonderland4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Just beyond your eyes
Where everyone lives and no one ever dies.
Through the sky and beyond the moon
With giant flowers
And trees that touch the sun
A whole planet
where nobody fits and everyone belongs.
And the children never die
And the adults never cry
You can be and do whatever you want.
It's a sacred place
Not to be invaded by reality
Where only those uncorrupted can explore.
A midnight city
A high-speed race
A never ending forest of wondrous creatures.
And you never have to come down
And Mario and Luigi would be jealous
There are no clouds, only bright blue skies.
Just beyond your reach
Out of your touch
In a place beyond your mind and senses.
If it does not exist in any way,
How come we spend so much time escaping to such a place
That we can't see, can't hear, can't touch?
Up through the sky
The best lie never told
You can fall in love or make enemies
So let's fly to this hidden dimension
Where you will never die
Or face those awful

When the doctor tells me
you are not breathing, you're dead
I'm beside you
because I love you
you went to heaven
I miss you, I will never forget you

How can he cherish a heart and soul that are fatally tarnished?
I don't deserve this love.
~She tells herself:
I will not I cannot let this go!
He makes me long to be better,
to live up to his estimation of my worth.
~He knows the truth of it:
She denies what she knows, even to herself.
See the light that shines, the inner flame that burns,
touch the noble spirit that will not yield.
Though darkness has time and again
sought to extinguish this wonder,
she waits for me still
~He holds her as in a dream and speaks:
We are not defined by our mistakes or our shortcomings.
No, these are how we grow.
We are defined by the people we will one day leave behind,
by the ones who remember us,
and the ones who choose to forget.
The people who, because of our actions,
are better and more complete in some small way.
Love is the brush that paints our picture.
Our pain, the hand that guides its path.

You may not believe me, and I wouldn't blame you if you don't. In fact, if you think this is mainly fictious, and you're reading this for kicks, congrats. If you're a mortal like me, fine. But if you're a demigod... I suggest you pack up and run to Camp. Now. Because your life is in danger.
I can see Greek monsters, gods, heroes and villains. Most mortals don't have the ability. But for me, of course, there's that tiny little disfunction with my brain, possibly a hint of insanity that lets me see.

The girl and her Gardevoir, walking side-by-side...
"Come on Gardevoir, we're almost to the next town!"
I turned to my beloved Pokémon and smiled, and she smiled back, hurrying to catch up from catching a few of the still falling leaves.
We walked slowly through the arch of golden-red trees, watching flurries of leaves fall and drift away on the noon winds.
We stepped into the town and looked about.
"Come on, let's stop at the Pokémon centre and get everyone checked."
We walked into the building and I approached nurse Joy who smiled and took my Pokémon.
I watched as she put them on the healing machine.
The normal tune played and she handed back five of my poke balls.
I looked at her curiously.
"I'll be just a minute, your Gardevoir needs to be checked, the machine picked something up, I'm sure it's just something minor"

My parents died when I was a little girl. That's probably the first thing I should mention. We owned a milk farm off in the countryside in Johto. It was a large patch of sunny meadow, our house taking up only a tiny portion of its space. I recall being a little girl and helping my mother milk the Miltank every morning. Well, it was more like my mother doing all the work while I ran around and goofed off. But it was still one of my better memories of my childhood.
One day, my parents went off to bring our famous milk into town ー and never came back. We had expected them home by at least dinner, with me hoping for a gift from the marketplace that I was usually brought. But six o'clock came and went with no sign of my beloved parents, so the maid that assisted in watching over me whisked me off to bed. I didn't know what had happened until I overheard our maid and farmhand talking about it in hushed voices the night after. A parched throat awoke me from a peaceful slumber.

Starring Twilight Sparkle and Princesses Celestia and Luna
Written in collaboration between Butterscotch Sundae and Foxxy Hooves
It had been many many pony generations since the clacking and clattering of young hooves had regularly enlivened the halls of Canterlot Castle, and Princess Celestia knew it. Even in the best of times there was more arthritic creakings of limbs from stiff and stiffening old diplomats and dignitaries than ponies at play, and sometimes she wondered if the life were going out of the old place.
But now the hammer and nails had come out and the constant buzz and flutter of pegasuses around the old south tower had stirred in the Princess memories of livelier days of fun and play in the wide marble halls, and that is how an invitation made its way from her study to the Ponyville Publick Library. The Princess had spent many weeks anticipating her student's arrival and the evening finally came late on

As Mellinta was leaving the castle, she looked back at King Candy, then continued on. Exiting the door, she bid the two pastry police a farewell, then walked away.
Later, while Mellinta was walking home, she was walking alongside the race tracks, kicking around some crumbs from the sugared ground. She thought to herself, 'Hm. He seems like a nice guy.' She paused, looking at her hand, still walking. 'He even kissed my hand like a gentleman...' She blushed. Realizing what has become of her emotions, she shook her head. *SNAP!* She stopped, flinching at the noise, which looked like it came from a small cotton candy bush.
Back at the castle, Wynchel and Duncan were whistling, calling out, even checking outside repeatedly. Duncan, who assumed the deviled dogs were outside where they were supposed to be, turned to Duncan and asked with a huff of aggravation, "Are you sure you left them out here? Or did you forget to put them in their boxes again?" The t

Roy blinked his eyes open, only to squeeze them back shut as the light blinded him. As he opened them again, he took note of three things:
1) He was in his office.
2) He wasn't wearing clothes.
3) There was a tiny, blonde haired man, grinning and staring at him.
There was a pause, and then
"Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!" He flailed about comically, forcing himself into a sitting position. He looked down at the blonde that had chosen to stay somewhat in his lap throughout all this, noting that the man was also half-naked, and he was laughing.
Belly-aching, side-clutching, tears-in-the-eyes laughing.
"I have to say," Ed breathed as his laughter calmed down, "that that was even funnier than your drunken flirting."
"I Did I " Roy looked about, eyes settling on his shoulder where what appered to be the beginnings of a hickey was forming.

Roach stared at the grave, and gave a slight shudder. This was all so surreal. He looked to his left, where an unmasked Ghost stood silently, his jaw tightening. His teammate's heavy breath turned to steam in the cold air beneath his nose.
It was odd seeing Ghost without his mask, but even the painted balaclava wouldn't have hidden the raw emotions radiating from him. It could be seen in his very demeanor. However, it was his eyes that gave away his chilling state.
The man was, in a word, broken.
To Ghost's left, Roach heard Soap sigh heavily, his eyes also glued to the grave marker. His eyes clenched shut.
"We should go," the Scotsman said quietly, placing a hand on Ghost's shoulder. Ghost gave no sign of having even heard the captain, but after a few moments' hesitation silently turned and began the uphill walk back to the compound.
The mud that squished beneath their boots from the dreary morning's rain was the only sound that broke the silence in the long walk.

We were now playing Cancer, one of our most tragic and difficult songs to play in front of an audience, especially an audience of probably millions and especially for Gerard, as he is the only one playing in this song.
The Mexican crowd screamed with ecstatic joy as Gerard gently cupped the microphone in his gloved palm. His swept-back, soaking, ebony hair stuck to his forehead and his Black Parade uniform, from were I was standing, looked as though it would just all melt off onto the stage and turn into a liquid or something. It was rather boiling in the arena from the amount of lights that were on.

Masaomi, Anri, and Mikado were waiting for me at the movie theatre. All three of them were stiff and looked uncomfortable. That's when I noticed the young man next to them.
He looked a little older than me about twenty-three or so. He had black hair in a style similar to Mikado's. He wore jeans and a black t-shirt, along with a cat like grin that somehow made him seem more handsome then he already was.
As I approached my friends the man gave me a quick look over.
"And who's this~?"
I opened my mouth to answer but Masaomi interrupted me.
"She's no one important just some girl."

As the back hatch opened, Ghost nearly sighed in relief as Shepherd came out to meet them. He could tell Roach, who was still breathing heavily in pain, began to relax in awaiting relief as well.
"Do you have the DSM?" Shepherd shouted over the roar of the engines.

gasping for air

I must sit here
she's right next to me
watching with a ghostly gaze
stary eyes and white hair
how much I loved her
I'd told her I'd give my life for her
and yet I thought I wouldn't have to
It was a promise
no one knows where we are
for we are lost in the eternal dark
The wind in our hair
We loved each other
It's the end
our feet on the edge of the bridge
cold metal on our bare feet
cuts and scares from razorblades
that cut in our pale skin
It's the end for us
we kissed a deep kiss
her soft lips on mine
then without any last thoughts we jumped

Kagekao followed Akadoku out of the warehouse. It was dark, so they didn’t have to worry too much about running into humans. They were able to walk normally on the sidewalk, hiding whenever a human came near.
They walked through the city, avoiding civilians and going at a quick pace. As they walked, Kage looked around. He could remember this place, he could remember climbing these buildings and preying on these people.
He could also remember the shinigami. Being in this city again, Kage could feel that dread that he had felt when he was younger and alone here; the dread that Scollex could be around any corner, ready and waiting to attack him.
Whenever turning a corner or hearing someone approach, Kage unsheathed his claws a little subconsciously, ready for a fight. Whenever he heard footsteps behind them he always expected to see those three large pairs of wings again.

Kagekao had managed to sneak onto a flight headed to Japan. It was a long flight, but he managed to stay hidden throughout it. However, it was boring; so he did decide to have some fun towards the end of the flight.
After the plane had landed and the passengers were waiting to be let out, Kage had snuck up on two of the airline staff. He killed them silently, and then put their bloody bodies on the cart that held drinks and food. He then shoved the cart down the aisle, sending it rolling away with the bodies on it, spilling blood onto the floor as it sped by the passengers.
The passengers had panicked and started screaming and running around. Kage, satisfied with his work, made his way away from the scene and towards the cargo hold. People had already begun taking the bags out, so the door was open and he left.
It was late at night, so the area was dark and filled with shadows; perfect for a demon like Kage to stealthily get around.
Kage then made his way past the airport; climbing up
