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 Wonderland3 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

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.

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"
I felt something in my stomach tighten. I didn't like the feeling I wa

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.

A deep breath
gasping for air
the mistake I made
cannot be undone
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
In the deep

Luna's Socks - Deluxe Edition
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

--Just a reminder, this is King Candy King Candy. Not Turbo King Candy. That'd be just weird for this fanfic.--
A sigh escapes a girl's lips as she sat down on a plush gumdrop cushion next to the Ramuné lake in the Candy Cane Tree forest. She was the only 'racer' living in that deserted area. She, Mellinta Pocky, lived in her home of Sugar Rush. An arcade game with candy kart racers; and outside an environment such as that, is Litwak's Arcade. An arcade that's been played by kids for over 30 years, new and old arcade games come and gone, but hey, that's gaming for you.
Mellinta stood up from her gumdrop cushion and glanced at the surroundings around her. All she could see was the lake, Candy Cane Trees, and a small house, hand made by Mellinta herself. The supplies she used to make it was a couple of cinnamon and candy cane sticks. It was the only home she had. Her ONLY home. She sighed, looking down to the sugary ground that she stood upon. "I wa

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."
I frowned at his introduction of me, "Ouch what's with the new attitude?"
"Now Kida-kun is that any way to treat a lady~?" The handsome dark haired man turned towards me.
"Excuse me miss, my name is Izaya Orihara."
I gave him a short bow, "Nice to meet you Izaya-kun, my name is (F/N) (L/N)."

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.

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

The meaning behind it all,
It is in the search of it,
The taste of discovering new things,
New worlds, new cultures,
And still have a lot to discover
It's the reason to why,
Diversity and death exist,
So that a man, never have a reason to be bored,
Before he has the chance to die,
Speak and listen with kindness,
Your truth and the truth of other people,
Even the ones from your worst enemies,
They too have their story,
Don't pretend affection, respect, love or friendship,
Even less pretend smiles, tears, or speeches,
Your hugs, kisses and tears,
Shouldn't be hard to get, nor should they be free to give,
When you can touch the horizon,
Speak all languages,
Tell the stories of life of all wise men,
Know the legends of all tribes
You'll be near the end,
Always be sought,
The meaning of life,
Remember to keep yourself alive,
There's nothing more important than that,
Dare to fly high,
Try hard to be happy,

So close yet so far. Esther sat on her bed, looking into the beady black eyes of the blue horse plush. The tall man, he always seemed to disappear when she wasn’t looking. She just needed an opportunity to speak to him, to see if he remembers that day. But he didn’t even seem to notice her when it happened. He might not even know what he’s done for her.
Esther sighed, she wanted to go look for him some more; but first thing’s first, she needed a job.

Fortunately, Esther managed to find a job after quite a bit of searching. She was hired to work as a waitress at a local bar. It was a decent job, not too difficult or extreme; although it was a bother to have to work around drunken men.
One night when working at the bar, there was someone new among the usual rabble of alcoholics. He was sipping a beer while looking through some files. He had brown hair and a dark brown jacket on. As she passed by, Esther kept attempting to look at the files and read a sentenc

“Don’t worry; it’s more exciting than those sorry asses that we dealt with yesterday. I think you’ll enjoy it. You got your hammer?”
“Yep! Right here!” Esther opened up her bag wide enough to see the top of the hammer in it, although she didn’t take it out; someone might see.
They walked along; Esther was excited for this special event. She felt that is was going to be a happy day for the two of them.

Love is a rare thing. You think I'm lying but it's true. Nearly every couple is in denial about it. Whether it's a newly found couple or 80 year old lovers.
Love is found in ever couple whether it is homo or hetero. It's up to the couple whether or not the relationship will flourish into love. If they don't pursue it than it will be a relationship that simply has two people "liking" one another. Even if they both speak the three words, it's the same as making an empty promise.
Love is having someone you can tell everything to. It's having someone understand you without any words. It's being able to have a conversation without contact. To have different opinions but still back each other up on it.
It's not something one can live without. Even if the love is fake, they'll feel like they have love but their body will know before the brain that it's all a ruse. People who truly have love aren't always happy. Emotions still like to take their course. Even though a couple full of pure love a

The doors burst open, several policemen rushed inside; guns aimed and ready. Others stayed outside, some in the open and some crouched behind the police cars.

“Want to take the ones outside? I’ll stay inside and get these ones.” Kage replied, unsheathing his claws.
