In love with youWhen I first saw you I didn't know what to think.In love with you2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I didn't know what to think because my mind went blank.
For the first time I was just admiring, and I never knew what admiration was until that moment.
That one could be transfixed and devoid of thought, purely in the moment.
Your beauty was arresting, almost an impossibility in a world full of tangibility.
Almost as if its existence caused me to question the nature of reality and entertain the notion of the absurd.
That beauty of this magnitude could not be true, almost a fabrication of a creative mind.
Such a mind would create an image without flaws, imperfections or things grounded in reality.
Perhaps I'm foolish to believe in love at first sight, and perhaps my feelings are misconstrued but I could not call this lust.
For lust is something with a sense of degradation from the viewer to the recipient, but when I look at you I cannot help but want to just be grateful for your beauty, your form and for you to remain untouched.
A Special Kind of SurpriseNormally Brittany wouldn't be caught dead awake at such an ungodly hour. She did need her beauty sleep, after all. But there were certain exceptions that she could occasionally make— and this happened to be one of them.A Special Kind of Surprise2 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Boys," she whispered, shaking the two sleeping forms gently. When they didn't show any signs of moving, she shook them harder. "Wake up."
One of them yawned and turned away from her, while the other simply lay un-moving, dead to the world.
"Boys!" she raised her voice, causing them both to sit up immediately and look around their shared room in confusion.
The twins both rubbed at their eyes sleepily, appearing to only be half awake.
"I have a surprise for you two," Brittany said. That got them up immediately.
"A surprise?" Al Jr. gasped, his eyes wide. "What kind of surprise?!"
Before Brittany could answer, Alvin Jr. interjected, "Couldn't you have given it to us earlier instead of now?"
"Nope," she shook her head. "It's a special kind of surpri
Kiss Me"What do you wanna to do?"Kiss Me4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I dunno. What do you wanna to do?"
Brittany sighed. She and Alvin were sitting in the Seville's backyard underneath a tree. Miss Miller had taken Eleanor and Jeanette to the mall for the day (Brittany couldn't go because she was grounded for not cleaning her room like she was supposed to). Dave was at a meeting for work while Simon and Theodore were at the movie theater, watching a babyish movie Alvin had no interest in seeing. The rest of their friends were either busy or out of town.
That left both Alvin and Brittany home by themselves. Since they both hated the feeling of being alone, they were forced to spend time with each other. And despite the fact that it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and the first day of summer vacation, they were both bored out of their minds.
"I hate being eleven years old," Brittany said suddenly. "We're not old enough to do anything fun. We're too young to drive a car, we can't go to cool parties, and we aren't even old eno
Treasures TakenTreasures Taken - By Nicholas EnglezosTreasures Taken3 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I walk down this lonely street,
It never seems to end,
I ignore the waves of bystanders who greet,
Because I do not need a friend.
My body is a temple raided,
Its inner treasurers taken,
The intruders full of hatred,
Their intention not mistaken.
I can still feel their fingers,
running down my physique,
Their presence always lingers,
And has left me feeling weak.
When does this road end?
Come on, it surely must,
To what time does it take for one to mend,
To recover, love again and trust?
They stood around my body,
A malicious, sleazy group,
Their actions cheap and shoddy,
A villainous, calculating troop.
They choked my neck and pulled my hair,
They mocked and laughed and joked,
They refused to acknowledge my despair,
As my composure broke.
As they stood around me,
I laid down on the floor,
their eyes were full of sickening glee,
As they started doing more.
I imagined being somewhere new
Where sex had little power,
On mighty wings my thoughts flew,

"Okay, that looks good" Simon said, as he put the finishing touches on his and Jeanette's science project. "Good thing too, its almost six o'clock. Are you almost done with the poster?"
"Yes. But I can finish it tomorrow. I still want to get back in time for dinner. Ellie said she and Theodore were going to make something special for desert." Mrs. Miller was out of town, and left the girls with Dave, who was suddenly called into a meeting, hence Ellie and Theo making dinner. Dave felt bad about having to leave so suddenly, but no one really minded, because dinner made by them was by no means a disappointment.

Free DaySaturday had been the day that Alvin had been looking forward to the most.Free Day5 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
It would be the first day that he wouldn't have to do literally anything for the first time in a long time. He could hardly remember the last time he'd been able to sleep late, eat breakfast at noon, watch whatever he wanted on TV for hours, not have to worry about having to go anywhere or run any errands, all of that good stuff.
Being an adult was hard, and it got boring after awhile, so days off were always great. Plus, Brittany and the boys wouldn't be at the house to ruin anything for him for this one.
He loved his wife and children, of course. But they could be a lot for one guy to handle constantly, and he needed his breaks sometimes. A whole day to himself sounded amazing, and he couldn't wait for Brittany to leave and take the twins with her for whatever it was that she had planned.
But of course, his excitement had been squashed by his wife announcing that she was going to give him the delightful pleasu
Her SecretThe house was eerily silent. Hard rain fell down outside, causing the already shaking Chipette to pull the covers on her bed close and squeeze her eyes shut tight. Thunderstorms didn't usually bother her, but the vivid images of the nightmare that she'd just experienced wasn't making it easy on her.Her Secret5 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
She opened her eyes to peek around the room. Both of her sisters were sound asleep, but she still felt nervous whenever she leaned down to reach under her bed and pull out a secret that she had kept hidden under there for a very long time. Jeanette stared at the object in her shaking hands.
Memories of the race around the world she'd went on with her sisters and the Chipmunks suddenly hit her. The Simon doll that she held in her hands was one of the only souvenirs that she'd kept from the trip, and not a soul but herself knew that she had it.
She'd known whenever she'd taken the doll that she probably shouldn't have. It would have been better off if she had left it. But no one had been arou

ReflectionSimon slowly went up the stairs and trudged down the hallway, heading for the second floor bathroom of the Seville household. He rested his hand on his forehead and sighed quietly. He felt warm and a bit dizzy, and he wasn’t sure as of why. When the young chipmunk had woken up that morning, his vision was perfectly clear, even without his glasses. Perhaps this was the cause of his unusual case of vertigo?Reflection7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Simon leaned against the wall next to the bathroom door and tried to think. His mind began to wander back to the night before. The memory was fuzzy, but he was positive that it was because of one of Alvin’s crazy schemes. There was something about a strange medieval castle, and many, many bats...
He brought his hand up to the crook of his neck and ran his fingers over a small bite mark. He had been alone at the time, when he was bitten by...something. It had happened so quickly, he almost had no time to react before it

The school day was just minutes away from starting and Simon walked the high school halls watching every boy or girl who kissed or hugged. He felt so out of place with all the love in the air. Even Theodore his little brother had a girlfriend. Alvin of course was always hitting on girls but dumped them the day after, but he was always self conscious of asking Brittany, which resulted in Alvin starting arguments.
Of course Simon wanted to know what love was, there were a few he's dated, but he didn't want to be like Alvin he wanted to be like Theodore who had Eleanor at his side. He was in 12th grade after all. He wasn't exactly popular, but he wasn't an outcast either. He accepted that fact...it didn't bother him.
"Hi, Simon!" A voice popped in his head. He turned around to see the emerald eyes that lit his spirit. He felt something special when he was with her, but he couldn't realize it.

La ragazza con la corona.
Un giorno un amico mi chiese un parere su come far uscire una persona a lui cara da un periodo depressivo.
Questa è la storia che gli raccontai...
"La storia di questa persona inizia così.
Parlare di una ragazza prigioniera di un guscio di cristallo,
che permetteva di vedere fuori
ma non sentiva il calore che da fuori proveniva
e la ragazza non sapeva come rompere il guscio...
Così restando in questa condizione di miseria, perdeva ogni amico,
e rimaneva ogni giorno sempre piu sola,
sempre piu prigioniera del cristallo gelido che le attanagliava il cuore,
sempre sola a piangere nella sua stanza
per motivi pressoche assurdi...
Un bel giorno, la reclusa decise di uscire
e vide la luce del sole, che risplendeva senza distinzione alcuna,
e sciolse il guscio di cristallo, facendolo diventare una corona di diamanti
che le adornava il capo come un aureola.

The smile she gave me was full of hope and support, and she wrapped me close into a warm hug and kissed my neck. "You can do it, babe. Call me when it's over, okay? Let me know how it goes."
I nodded and kissed her quickly before stepping out of the car and staring down my parents' house, my frosty breath rising as Callie drove away. I heard the car slowly pull down the street. She was scared of driving in the snow, but she said that being with me was helping. She wasn't as worried anymore. And she'd go anywhere for me.

Your words tear into innocent hearts
Like your knife though bruised flesh
When I saw your work, my breath caught

I clenched my teeth and raised my head
But it didn't stop the coming pain

Apparently his love for me was conditional
While mine had no room left for denial

They told me to man up, that the street would tough me up
Guess they didn't know all I got was shot

He sighed as he looked down. "Why did I let myself get talked into this?" he asked in a thinking out-loud way.
"Because if you said no, your only son would throw a fit." came the voice of his younger brother Cecil who was standing beside him. The two had been dragged here by their sons Gino and William who as it turned out were really into video games which the two boys played quite a lot much to their fathers dismay.
"I am never going to understand these things or our sons weird obsession with them, for that matter." Bob stated to his brother as he crossed his arms. "I doubt any parent really does." Cecil added before he started to head inside the building, with Bob following him in.

Do you ever get the feeling of fireworks in your heart when you see somebody you have feelings for? That feeling when you think your heart's gonna explode from all the emotions you're experiencing?
If you do, you might know what I'm talking about when I say that I have feelings you. Feelings that make me want you to kiss me in the hallway, in front of every single student and teacher. That make me want you to take my breath away. That make me want you to tell me that you return these feelings.
Everytime I see you, I'm happy. I'm happy because there is a chance that you'll say hi to me; that you'll give me one of your big, warm hugs that squeeze the air out of me; a chance that you'll smile at me. I live for those moments when you do. I hope you know that.
