A Secret Untold, a Lie to Unfold
It was a rainy Saturday morning. I was alone, sitting on the sofa in the great room. I was reading my favorite novel, because for once, it was quiet. My little brother Wolfe was gone, and my mother was in her room. The only thing I could hear was the soft tapping of the rain on the roof.
The clock above the mantle went off

The words I cannot erase,
Chemistry and common interest shared,
Now all of our wounds are bared,
Forget the solemn times we spent,
Now my heart seems completely bent,
A different shape and form,
If only we weren't so torn,
She's taken my place,
All the lies that were told,
The lives that were sold,
Sold to everything in our past,
It seems like time goes so fast,
Don't forget me,
As we flee,
From the scene of our faded friendship,
Only a small reminder of our relationship.

We were close as can be
And maybe even a little more.
As of today
And we shunned
And our bond broke apart.
As of tomorrow
No words being spoken
And a lonely heart.
Sometimes I wish we could be
Together and how we were
But when I look back I realize
You always wanted her.

But you are never around
I have to search and search
Until you are found
Why don't you ever search?
Why don't you ever seek me?
Why am I always the one
Who has to sustain "we"?
You're fine without me
You get along
But when I'm without you
Everything's all wrong
You don't need me by your side
Don't need me here
You don't need to hear my voice on the phone
When I'm not near
You never call
You never stop by
You never come to me
You've never tried
If you don't need me
Then maybe I should just go
Our feelings aren't equal
And that hurts me to know
It hurts that I feel I love the most
It hurts tha

Though hardship maybe my lot
My love is strong
I'm not right, but I'm not wrong
And I aim to win
To beat out all the sin
The evil inside
Our love corrupted by what we hide
I know you're scared
Cause no one ever cared
Well go on babe, let the fear take hold
Let your words be cold
Give it your best shot
Try not to be caught
By the feelings you fear
When I am so dear
Do what you've done
To make the others run
But I'll still be here
Let me make it clear
I'm here to stay
My feelings won't stray
So scream and shout
Let it all out
Let it be free
So then you will see
I'll still be here

If You Were MineIf you were mine, each moment would be a wondrous joy. Each day would be better than the one before.If You Were Mine1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
If you were mine, each kiss would be a precious treasure. Each caress would be a secret promise of eternity. Each embrace would be warm, welcoming and only for you.
If you were mine, each word spoken would be a proclamation of love for you. Each whispered sigh or moan would be for your ears only. Each time I spoke your name, it would be soft... gentle... filled with the love that eats away at me every day since the day I first met you.
If you were mine...
I would respect you, love you, care for you. I would show you that the world isn’t full with only heartache and broken promises. I would restore your faith in humanity.
I would show you how beautiful you truly are. I would show you what it really means to be loved. I would show you all the different kinds of love there are in this world and how I feel each and every one of them for you and you alone.

For all time,

To be something everyone wants me to be,
To be someone who doesn't make mistakes.
It's not my fault I'm not perfect.
If I can't do it, I move on..
But it's not that simple for you, is it?
When I'm crying, it's not because I failed,
It's because of that look you give me,
It says how dissapointed you are at me.
I'm sorry I can't do everything you tell me to do,
But it's not like I owe you any way,
I mean, when's the last time you've done something for me?
I'm not saying you're the bad guy here,
But why do you always make yourself the victim?
And blaming me for everything that goes bad..!?

It's a bit of a confusing matter.
I'd think that only I'd understand this,
But you can read along anyway.♥ "
I don't want to be alone,
But it's like I'd have no choice.
Even surrounded by faces,
I feel trapped in an empty room.
At times, I would wish to be alone,
So no one would see me lose it.
I could become a monster,
But that's ok because the dark hides it.
Sometimes I'm forced into the darkness,
By friends or family or me,
It's because no one wants the burden,
Of being around a depressed thinker.
And isn't it funny how,
There's that one person you love,
Who always asks if you're ok,
But you can't reply be

It was a sad sight really. She wasn't physically unattractive, but the odd sprawl of motionless limbs had something disturbing wrong with it. The little excess flesh around her belly didn't really detract from her overall physique, but the persistent scowl that existed on her face did.
She had never been a good person, and though she occasionally did good things for people, it was purely because it somehow benefited her to do so. In the past, she had ruined many peoples lives through careful manipulation. Callously

I cut my hair absurdly short.
I thought it would be easy for me to spike it up, I felt rebellious and wanted to look cool.
No amount of gel could spike that up. I looked in the mirror the next morning, and thought I had been replaced with a boy.
At school William laughed at me.
I was ten.
I just wanted to be happy.
Delilah came over to play.
We took turns to write stories on paper, each impersonating a character we loved or had made up. Sometimes we would then act the scenes out.
We were roleplaying when we had no idea what that even was.
She said it was nice that I had my hair short, that I could act out the males tha

Last night was so hot; I left the party with a huge grin on my face. It almost didn't matter that Mikey and I were interrupted before the real fun began.
He and I had alone time, which was what mattered.
The next day I woke up to heavy drum beats. Groggily I stepped out of my dark room, to my roommate's door.
My roommate was banging away on his drums, rather loudly.
"Jimmy!" I yelled, knocking on his locked door. "Jimmy!"
When the drums continued, I came to the conclusion that Jimmy didn't hear my shouts.
Either that or he was ignoring me.
Sighing heavily, I walked back to my room. It was barely noon when I got dressed;

Standing part from the crowd
Why are you so silent?
Is that Hat you hide behind your speakers?
And the funny Mustashe your microphone?
You prance away from policemen,
and dance without a beat.
Your face expresses all the things,
You'd never dare to speak.
With a spring of your cane,
and a hop in your step.
You waddle away from the crowd you just upset.
A heart made out of Gold.
His life lives on,
His story without a fold...

Bleeding from the cuts,
Crying from the pain.

Hidden by clothing and makeup.
Because of you I am thankful for makeup,
Thankful I can hid

A pair of white lights appeared in the distance with the roar of a monster. It continued on past a Thunderpath that rose high into the sky, filling the air with putrid fumes.
At the end of the wasteland, a cat moved, eyes glittering in the shadows. Tall ears twitched, then flattened against the commotion. More cats followed one by one, tails trailing onto the filthy grass.
"What if one sees us?" A cat hissed, jerking it's head towards a Twoleg.

Sadistic laughter ringing through my ears
Will no one save me?
Nanana! They taunt
I am but a seal pup in the water with a hunger driven great white shark
"Stand up" they say
But my legs say otherwise
When they have eaten their fill of my pain and suffering
Only then do they disappear into the darkness
Restoring their energy for tomorrow's feast
No one seems to hear my plea for help
My breath is wasted on them
And this cycle is doomed to forever repeat itself
Somebody save me

"Azura, aren't you tired?" I asked her, wincing inwardly as a vibrant lightning bolt streaked across the sky, soon followed by an echo of thunder drumming. It was pouring it down, but to protect everything that we had been building, Azura had made a psychic shield that hovered just above the hollow, shielding everything from the dreadful damp menace. One more day, and it was estimated that everything would be finished. Provided that it didn't keep storming that is.
Azura sat, or more accurately hovered, on her bed, her eyes closed and her concentration fixed on keeping the shield in tact. She

To be exact, it had been 5 days since Dawn had ominously put me in charge of the Town, saying that there was an emergency that she had to attend to. I could tell how serious it was by the haunted look in her eyes, so I didn't ask any questions. I merely said; "Sure, I'd be happy to help!"
Although, I admit, I didn't do many things different from normal. I checked that everyone was operating smoothly (and things were going alot faster with the helpers that Sirius had asked for), gave the occasional orders here and there, and I covered for Dawn, telling people that she had gone to take care of
