Growing VioletteLettie was nervous as she dressed. It was the first time she'd seen Kurt since the shrinking incident, and she wasn't sure how this was going to go. Still, he'd called her and invited her to come over to his house. That was a good sign.Growing Violette3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
In fact, Lettie had been in contact with virtually no one from her school while she was being home-schooled. The home-schooling was a functional necessity because of the shrinking incident. The only people she'd seen regularly had been her best friend, Cat, and her brother, Ty.
Mom checked in. "Oversized clothes? Really?" she said. "I'd have thought you'd go the other way, under the circumstances. I mean, the brown sweater and off-white skirt are nice, but so big."
"It's a cool day, and I've got some clothes to deal with any shrinkage stashed underneath these things, Mom," Lettie said. It suddenly struck her as odd how casually she said that. &

"I'm sorry I have a girlfriend "
Crash! Burn! Maria could hear and feel her heart break into a million pieces. Her head was down; her hands were falling to her sides. "I understand " She cursed mentally as she felt tears forming in her eyes. Pursing her lips tightly and without another word, Maria turned around and ran away from the boy. To her dismay, the boy didn't even scream out her name let alone chase and stop her. With another broken heart, Maria ran as fast as she can.
She cried again.
Maria lay on her bed, crying as usual. Her face was covered with a pillow; wet with tears.

She gasped out loud, hands cupping her mouth. "What Oh my God, this is beautiful!" She took the basket, which was filled with 1,000 paper cranes made exquisitely by me. My smile was widening to see the radiant smile on her face.
"So, you like it?" I asked like an idiot, when I knew full well that she clearly liked it.
The brunette giggled bashfully. "Oh you silly boy. I love it!" Without warning, she pounced on me with one of her hug attacks. I cringed as I was about to fall on my bum, but my feet stood firmly on the ground. My face was beginning to feel hot, and my eyes were round as saucer plates.
I could feel her smiling even when I couldn't see her. Chuckling boyishly, I wrapped my arms around her waist and swayed our bodies left and right. "Those paper cranes resembles trust, loyalty, and foremost of all, our undying love to each other."
Decaying SkinI want to be dustDecaying Skin4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Floating in the care free air
Free to roam on breathless sighs
Empty, yet consumed
I want to be skinless
Shoulder blades etching like swans
From my decomposing back
So beautifully created
Under my delicate decaying mask
Painting red skies onto my skin
The pain-staking sky washes over me
Brushing through my pores
And leaving trails of crimson secrets
That my lips daren't ever tell
Deliverance, decadence, fragility
A breath taking numbness
Cold to the touch, and lifeless to the bone
My frayed mentality, forever wearing away
With each battered and weathered memory
Etching themselves onto my brain
Like an artist's masterpiece
That encompasses his soul
Forever waiting....just waiting
For that masterpiece to be understood
As beauty, and not a delicate mess

That fall upon her head
I grab her heels for endless days
And crawl along her bed
The wind that scrapes the dying trees
Across her window frame
Breaks down her strength to sobs and pleas
I am the one to blame
A ticking, swinging, ancient clock
Will chime for terror's sake
I lead the night upon the block
With monsters in my wake
My spiders hear her muted screams
Of fingers 'round her neck
They peel her dark, abusive dreams
And leave her mind a wreck
I am the creak that leaves the floor
When candle lights blow out
I steal the key and lock the door
To keep inside her doubt
I wipe her blood off on my sleeve
Endeavour not to stay
I curse the sun before I leave
When day steals her away
You KnewI never spoke of sadness.You Knew4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I never spoke of tears.
I never spoke of anguish,
And never of my fears.
Yet you heard.
I never appeared to be empty.
I never was alone.
I never confessed my solitude,
And looked happy on my own.
Yet you saw.
I did not think of my anger,
My hatred and distrust.
I shut them all away
'Till they crumbled into dust.
Yet you knew.
While others failed to notice,
Neglected and ignored,
You found me in the shadows:
My knight with gleaming sword.
You heard and saw and knew
Of my darkness deep within,
Yet you stayed here to protect me
From many a deadly sin.

Another cold empty night
Inevitably is revealed
Again I am alone tonight
With scars never healed
Becoming victim to doubt
The darkness it brings
Feeling I can't let out
I must suffer the stings
As each dark day passes
The momentum grows strong
Bright joys of the masses
Only make me feel wrong
Painted across their faces
Tears holes in my reality
The reflections and traces
Of a life I'll never see
I try to lock it all away
With the memories and lies
I want it all to decay
But none of it ever dies
It sits there, waiting
A dark tumour of the soul
The pain it's creating
Momentum beyond all control
I just can't understand
How to stop this madness
Each delusional demand
Leads back to the sadness
Trying to hold it back
Oceans of idiotic tears
With every growing crack
Another weakness appears
I am sick of being so weak
A symphony of my mistakes
My empty future is bleak
Not long before it breaks
Failing resolve wears thin
I build a layer of cynicism
To conceal what lies within
ListenListen: I'm going to tell you about a narcotic substance. It causes hallucinations, personalised to the individual. This drug makes people believe that shadows will, inch by inch, consume their environment. The shadows are different for everyone. For example, on a tiny speck of dust in an infinite universe (did I mention this drug is intergalactical?) there was once a man who wrote a story about a man whose shadows were non-existant political enemies. This writer's country later went to war with a man whose shadows were a race of thieves, of scoundrels, who were solely responsible for his country's woes.Listen4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

Levi lifted his cup up towards his mouth, sipping the steaming tea.
You leaned in towards Levi's ear and whispered, " You can punish me tonight if I can eat."
Levi nearly spitted out his tea, but held it in and for a moment, chocked on it. He already regain his composure and placed his cup down. Levi turned to look at you with his usual straightforward face, only with a slight hint of his mouth corners lifting up.
The meal for today was rice accompanied with broccoli and meat. Meat was so rare, and having a dinner like this is enough for someone to kill you for it. Out of all the days you've caused trouble, you just had to cause trouble this day, when the whole squad was celebrating Eren for finally being able to control his titan. Most of the time.

The Life of a MistressShe awakens with a possessed mind frame,The Life of a Mistress5 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Slowly forcing herself out of bed,
Walks sagely towards the mirror,
For her face was far beautiful than any other,
She leaves .
Feeling overly ecstatic from her desperate addiction,
Wanting more each time she awaits for her giver,
He approaches with disgusted eyes,
Slipping the purchase within reach while strolling along form the opposite direction,
Seconds later he's gone,
She feeds her demanding nerves .
Standing by the edge,
Waiting unstably for her new winner,
Speaking sweet nothings to her prey,
As they look with interest,
She falls .
The impact of rushing fluids through each vein,
Being attacked, overshadowed, completely captured,
She reaches the final blow... and collapses to the watered sidewalk,
Being in the mist as the moon offered a spotlight,
She loses it .
Mind, body destroyed,
Taking its own say so limb by limb as they normally do,
Shaking rapidly, causing her to jerk freely,

That I'll never skip,
Much music comes and goes,
But your song won't slip.
You're controlling the beat,
The rhythmic pulsing of my heart,
When we're close it races,
And it slows when we're apart.
Your beautiful song,
Washing away all my fears,
Never has such a tone,
Soared so gracefully around my ears.
Your harmony so precious,
It's become an addiction,
Please don't leave my ears alone,
This is my happy affliction.
You're my secret love,
No one else can hear what I do,
You just needed the right listener,
Someone who could appreciate you.
You're my perfect melody,
Not to be replaced by another,
We both had something missing,
And now we found each other.

And winds of ever changing climates
We lost our sense of self, our worth
Somewhere along the paths we traveled.
Yet we still walk on, slowly forgetting ourselves
Only remembering the horrible times of struggle
Where bruises were beautiful and scars were perfection
Walking into our own deaths
Mindful of naught but the next procession
Don the fabled smile and mimic life's progression.
Like drones in a cursed hive, we follow obliviously.
Searching for something lost, yet if found, we'd never see.
With eyes covered with rags
Hands tied behind our backs
Single formation lines
We all begin to think alike, losing what makes us unique
Further into depression we leaked
Stripped of individuality and made into clones
Back breaking and still no place like home
Curled into ourselves and unable to atone, lost, adrift, alone.
And so we will march on
Down the paths we take,
That lead us right into
Mistake after mistake.

I'd wrap myself up in you when I'm feeling blue.
And every time I missed you I'd breathe deep
The scent of black tinged with the perfect scent of you.
If only I had something tangible of yours to hold onto
Something that holds your smell or warmth.
Yet I have nothing, so I sit here and sculpt your
Face in my mind's eye with picture perfect clarity,
Every hour or two.
I get a little jealous when I think 'she' has
The pleasure of seeing you everyday,
Oh sometimes I wish to take her place.
But her story with you is over and
Mine hasn't reached that place.
It kills me that she can give you things
I cant, I want to be your saving grace.
And yet I fear if you had me day in and day out
I would lose your favor and my novelty would fade.
Every hour I sit here and think of you
As swirly incantations abound my cranium.
There's no rest from your visions
I'm afflicted by you, so consumed,
No engulfed with desire and the,
Lusty hazed dreams that only you inspi

The first beginnings of snow began to drift towards the ever gratifying Earth, causing the male to blink his eyes open in a slight haze. A flake landed on the pale man's nose, quickly dissolving and running down his cheek. He sighed, gazing up at the never changing indigo sky, a color that seemed well suited for his country. He turned his face to the left, causing his platinum blonde hair to shift into his greyish blue eyes.
Sometimes I wonder if things could be different between my brother and I. He thought, closing his eyes again as his thoughts drifted further back
