A Liar's Excuse"Dare you to jump" (You think you can)A Liar's Excuse5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A suicidal praise
To steal words of the mockingbird
To try and win with 26 royal flushes with only 2 cards
And one erected finger in defiance. "Dare you."
Slumbers to invoke dreams of
Illusionists and Jokers
Who do you think you are? Interrupting one's dreams
Bring yourself to a secluded world, dragging others in
Place that rusty, bloody object on your head! Crown your self queen of this corn
And of me
You seem to have an everlasting fountain
With cheery clothing
Blue eyes with violent, witty intent
Your soul is waving and slapping ever so greatly against my individualism
So breathe like it was your first and first among this world
Let the air make you fly then drop you cold and useless in your delirium
"You deserve it."
Don't stop until the northern lights become your cape
The stars your jewelry
Because you know you're worth it
Oh so worth it
Even if the other damn you, like me
So eternal bliss fall to your feet

It was all a joke. I was so stupid to have trusted him. I gave my love and he didn’t give it any importance. It hurts so much. So this is what it feels to be betrayed, rejected and heartbroken.
I forced myself not to cry because if I did, I would ruin my makeup that was put on by my aunt for an hour.
Tonight was a big night because the prom is taking place and it’s also this time that I broke up with my boyfriend, Alfred F. Jones but I recently found out that he was just playing with my feelings and it broke my heart into pieces.
I was such an idiot to believe those words he told me.
No, I have to get him off of my mind and focus on what’s in front of me. I took another deep breath, gripping the hem of my cocktail then went inside where I was greeted by the one in charge of preparing tonight’s event. She gave me a gate pass and I handed it to the security guard. I walked in but I stumbled forward because someone bumped me.
I whipped my head and instead of tellin
You're SpecialYou know what I love? People who lie. People who speak half-truths and quarter-truths and sometimes ten-and-a-fourth-truths. All those ugly, stupid people.

Well, I love you, too.
I love you lots and lots. I promise you. And you should believe me because I tell you. Not because I SHOW YOU with actions or because I do anything for you. Just believe me because I will spend a minute and a half every now and then to give you a two-thirds-truth that suggests something about the way you look or the way you make me feel. I'll maybe write a paragraph and a half so that you understand, so you look at me and think, Yes. I believe. Do you believe? Because I don't.
Oh, you're so special! You're so GOD DAMN SPECIAL! But you're only SPECIAL right NOW because I SAID you were so freaking SPECIAL. And in a few d

There is never an echoing emptiness when you
Think of old, blood-stained memories
Or of conversations past,
Though they have all lost their sound
And the emotion that they once held.
"It is wrong," they mutter to you,
"To be at home inside your skull."
They tell you that the only way you can be
Free is if you unstitch your lips
And speak to people who just don't understand.
"But is it wrong," you wonder,
"To want to tear your skin apart
So that you may prove at last that you are
Just as human as they are?"
"Is it so wrong to only feel lonely when
You are surrounded by them and
Their obsession with perfection?"
"Is it wrong to think a little differently
To someone who will never know normality?"
In your head, you are never

Banshee - A woman, dressed in white, who makes appearances to sing or recite poetry the night before a loved one is to die. Until very recently (when new legislation was introduced to protect consumers) life insurance companies frequently cancelled policies upon reports of banshee sightings. Great care must be taken to distinguish between banshee singing and banshee yodeling, as the latter merely indicates that you will, at some point tonight, accidentally ram your shin into the coffee table.
Basilisk - The origin of the phrase "If looks could kill." The basilisk is a small lizard-like creature hatched from the egg of a serpent. It secretes a venom so toxic that not even Keith Richards can survive it, and even its gaze is instantly deadly. Consequently many modern, peace-loving basilisks are forced to wear blindfolds in order to have any interactions with normal society; even so they have difficulty securing Prom dates, and are fr
Burden of ProofLet us, for a moment, assume that I exist.Burden of Proof7 years ago in Humor More Like This
That would be most convenient, since I am the guy writing this. If I dont exist, then I am not writing this, and you are reading something existentially impossible. So, if you would be so kind to agree on the fact of my mere existence, Id be much obliged.
And, let us assume that Time, and the Universe, are infinite.
A bit of a stretch, I know, but read Stephen Hawkings A brief history of Time and you will be convinced of this fact. Either that, or your brain has melted. Either is equally possible.
As a logical conclusion, every possible chance in an infinity of time is a mathematical certainty.
Of course. If there is a chance that something will happen, and the chance is repeated an infinite amount of times, it is bound to happen some time, sooner or later.
And it doesnt matter if it is sooner or later, because we have an infinite amount of time to spare. Its like flipping a

Castiel watched silently as the Winchesters crept towards a man lying prone on a pool table. Ash, he knew, although he'd never met him. The angel-turned-God watched as Ellen and Jo leapt out, shotguns trained on the Winchesters. Castiel took note of the expression on Jo's face: pure admiration for the older Winchester.
He stepped forward, making himself known to her. She looked at him for a moment, confused. "Cas?" she asked as the rest of the scene played out before them, unaware that one of the characters was no longer playing h

The rain was pouring from a clouded sky. Waves were crashing against the sides of the boat taking people from the City of Chains to the Gallows, making it rock back and forth even harder than usual.
Hayden was sitting on a crate in a corner under the deck, trying hard not to notice the young mage that so obviously was feeling seasick. He was trying hard not to throw up, she could tell. The templars was already looking furiously at him for the mess he'd made on the floor the first time and they're eyes told them all that they would not tolerate a second time.
She was a spirit healer as well as a battle mage and she could easily ease his illness, but if she were to help him she would expose herself to the templars. And even if she was the Warden Commander and Hero of Ferelden, she hardly believed that they would just let her go, with all the things that had happened with the mage-rebellion. And she didn't want to trouble Cullen because of a boys seasickness, not when the boat would dock

He walked slowly across the plain, the golden straws tickling his palms as he moves forward, towards the ocean. From a distance he could hear waves crashing against the shoreline. Birds were crossing the sky, their cries somewhat calming in the symphony of nature.
The honey-colored eyes, however, wasn't taking in the stunning view of the world in a palette of gold and blue, but the woman standing in the sea, water to her ankles and the wind making her ruby hair and her midnight blue robes dance around her otherwise immobile frame. His mouth curved into a smile, watching her watch the waves travel across the sea.

Fenris stared into the empty bottle of Aggregio. A few, red drops of the wine were at the bottle, but he didn't feel like going for them. That would just be pathetic.
A second later, he drained the bottle of the last few drops.
He stared at the label, making out a few words. Faline had been teaching him, but he was afraid it was going no where. Their sessions were... awkward, to say the least. Since he'd walked out, she hardly looked at him. He missed the elven mage's quirky ways, the way she would nervously giggle when she spoke, how when he surprised her she'd let out a benign jolt of electricity around her hands...he really was hopeless.
But...earlier that day, she'd been different. She'd been her bubbly, cheerful self again. She'd actually smiled at him. He'd been...confused. When he asked her if something was wrong, he'd found out.
Apparently that filthy abomination had gotten his hands on her.

Lothering, Southern Bannorn, Ferelden
Malina liked Lothering. Sure, the little creek running through the middle of town smelled like an open sewer… mostly because that's just what it was, and yes, quite a few of the locals seemed somewhere between "slow mabari" and "clever lump of dirt" in terms of intelligence… that made no difference. Lothering was blessed with something no other town could claim: the most oblivious templar force in the whole of Thedas. Not only had they managed to live quite happily for years, they had done so without so much as a single question. Even when Bethany developed a religious streak and began attending Chantry services over the strenuous objections of, well, everyone, their lives remained calm.
The sisters were sitting on the bridge over open-sewer creek, kicking their legs over the edge. They had been giggling about an Orlesian novel Bethany had found somewhere. "I think it seems silly," Bet

Their advance had slowed as they took head of the Grey Wardens who had not only appeared among their folly, but downed their Lieutenant in one deadly strike. Her armour shone a hellish red. Battle born flames danced across her blades. Her frame, although petite in stature commanded a terrifying presence, one which the Templars had undoubtedly noticed.

The light grew dimmer until the fire was all but out. Even the candle on the table had given up some time ago, only the cold, hard wax stuck to the brass holder and cracking wood of the table were left to tell it had existed at all. I didn't want to stir, but her smell no longer lingered, her warmth long gone from the room. Did I wish for her return? Did I dare to?

Alistair chuckled sheepishly, pinching the bridge of his nose. "Friendly advice, please. If I have to listen to one more 'professional opinion' about anything, I'll go bloody insane. And yes, there is a reason behind my asking."

Cheetor quietly opened the door to his quarters and peeked out. No one around. Good. It was the middle of the night, and the rest of the Maximals were all sleeping. Optimus had ordered them to bed after a long day's work doing repairs. The Predacons had caused trouble the day before, and the Axalon had been looking a little worse for wear after the attack. It had taken a full day to repair all the damage. Cheetor knew that he should have been tired, but he was feeling a little restless again, and he thought that a midnight run might do him some good.
He slipped out into the hallway and closed the door behind him. He knew that Rattrap was on night duty, but Rattrap had a tendency to fall asleep on the job when he thought nobody was watching. Now if only he's asleep tonight…

How many years had passed since then? Three years? Four? It had been almost four years since she left Earth and joined the Alliance military and now she was being rewarded with the Star of Terra for her efforts on Elysium. Though efforts was perhaps the wrong word. She hadn't done everything she could to save the human colony when it was attacked by pirates, slavers and batarian warlords. No. Avery rallied the civilians to defend their home and when the attackers broke through their defenses, she singlehandedly fought them off until backup arrived.

The dress she had been loaned flared around her as the breeze caught the hem and spun it out as if it had read her thoughts and wanted to show her wind was not just for the sea. She smoothed the linen down and frowned; she felt naked in this after spending so much time in her armor. The dress was the only one the Dalish clan had been able to find that would fit her. The skirt only fell to her calves, but at least it fit through the chest and with it she was able to mend and wash the rest of her clothes.
