you’d ever doubt a word i said
and then you’re eighteen

how little i knew then
and you’re too quick to tell me
how little i know now
and it pains me to know
that i know enough to know
that you know so much less.

I miss my friend Calvin.
I miss when he would cry in the corner of my dark room, hiding his face, scratching the walls.
But when I would turn to comfort him, he was gone.
He did love my mirror as well.
I would catch him though.
I saw his reflection, crying in the corner.
I would say hello, but he would not respond.
And I could only see him in the mirror.
It was only at night when he would talk.
But that was something I liked about him.
I could hear him breathing heavily.
I could see the indentions of his hands on the covers.
I could feel his warm breath on my neck.
But he would not let me see him.
He said he didn’t want to scare me.
I said he wouldn’t.
But he would just leave my side, and return to his corner.
Scratching the walls as he usually would.
When my mother would come the next morning, and ask who did it.
“Calvin did it.” I would say.
She would only yell at me, saying Calvin was not real.
“Yes he is.” I would say.
“Then prove it to me.

Adommy - AlwaysIt was never really something Adam thought about; it just sort of… happened. Words flowed effortlessly from his mind and on to the paper in the notebook he always carried. Ideas, memories, lines; sometimes even just stupid little poems that may or may not make it into a future hit. It was all a process, a way to keep his mind busy and working. To keep his mind from the pain.Adommy - Always2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Adam’s heart leapt up to his throat as the all too familiar voice broke through his thoughts. The pencil stopped moving on the paper as he swallowed audibly and turned his attention to the man standing in the doorway.
“Can I help you, Tommy?” he asked, forcing his voice to stay calm and even, even as the pain shot through his chest. Those lips parted just ever so slightly, those eyes searching for answers to questions left unasked, the hair teased just so perfectly to fall around his face; he really was someone Adam could spend his life with. Of course, that was no longe

The Eve probe sat there on the ground paralyzed with fear; the ominous figure above her continued to stare her down with his piercing yellow eyes, keeping a close eye on her.

I made a set of wings
Woven into the finest white silk
Edges firm with golden threads
And silvery seams.
It glimmered in the sun
Fitting snugly, if a bit heavily
On my small shoulders.
And I launched off,
Emerald dust floating the air behind me,
Leaving a trail of shimmering gem-dust.
But as I flew towards the clouds
The sun caught in my eyes
And my silken wings flamed
Charring my milky white arms
As I plummeted
Towards the dry hard earth.
I drew myself a sketch
Of a pair of magnificent wings
Emerald upon fine silk
Gold upon silver lacing.
I crafted it with subtle care
And loosed it upon the world
Created with the
Blood of dreams long-lost
Memories near forgotten
And words I've never said.
I think you may have found it.
Now it's time for you
To try and make it fly...

That much is true.
I would give up anything.

Lost are those fading into powerful effluvium

The wholehearted chatter and feel of paramnesia
Caressed tightly ever long before the nights end
Returning to the drawl and unmoving fixations of reality
Until the night comes once again

I wrote my vows to you
That no matter if we ventured far
We would do what we'd have to do
I kissed you goodbye
Tears staining my lips
And I kept wondering why
I would have to leave this
Thousands of miles away from you
I sat there all alone
Not knowing what to do
Felt like I was lost, left to fight on my own
But then I looked up at the stars
Saw them looking back at me
And although the distance between us was far
I knew under the stars was where you'd be
You asked what I would miss when I went away
I told you the stars and you
And you told me that I was your day
And that you were my moon
And if I had the choice
To choose between having you and the stars
I would use every breath, until I had no voice
To be where you are

Hello, my name is Bombia and I have been roleplaying for about thirteen years. Over those years, I have learned many things and I would like to pass on some knowledge to other roleplayers who are newer to it or would like some tips.
First off, let me talk about some etiquette tips.
Noting a person as part of a roleplay request:
What I find annoying and irritable is if someone just notes me with a "Hello." and nothing else. If noting a person for a roleplay, please tell them why you are noting them. That way the person who you are sending the Note to knows why you are noting them and the process is smoother.
Ending a roleplay
If you no longer wish to do a roleplay, please note the person and let them know that you do not wish to continue and if possible providing them with feedback as to why. That way you do not leave the person longing and waiting for a roleplay. It gets very annoying and rude. In some cases

All knowledge about her must turn to ash,

Alas, no matter how hard I try,
Even if everything is gone,
She is still there…

Only snippets remain.
Foreign worlds with the whole student body,
And more importantly her.
A troubled secret,
Pains taken to hide
Are suddenly compromised
By an unintending comrade.
Though she has yet to know,
One more misstep at it shall all be over.
She asks what is wrong.
Bulit-up tension and stress overflow.
I take flight to hide my unshed tears
Under a blanket of self-denial and regret,
Leaving her with a look of utter bewilderment and
Driving to an unexpected destination,
She sits in the car in front of ours.
I can see right through,
Can hear everything she says.
My behavior has confused her,
She vows to shed the light.
Much like she unknowingly shines light upon my days.
She asks . . .
And I awake.
All a dream.
And yet there was no resolution.
I ponder upon what the real resolution will be.

And see the leaves blowing
The trees swaying in the wind.
I feel it between my fingers
The air slipping through them
The wind, tenderly holding my hand.
My hair, thrown about by the gusts
It gets in my eyes and tickles my face
But I don't mind. The Sun is warm.
I close my eyes and reach out
Until my arms reach the sky
The wind flows through me,
My essence flows into it
Merges with it, twisting itself
Into the wyrd of the World.
I can feel it all within me.
The grass is damp under my feet
And I feel the life without.
I open my eyes.
The Sun is setting now.
Vivid, wonderful colours!
All, beautiful beyond reason.
The wind caresses me yet.
I feel life bubbling up inside me
Drifting throughout my being,
Every nerve is excited by the rush
Of the air over my exposed skin
Chills dance up and down my spine.
My limbs insist on movement
Such wonderful energy! Such life!
I find myself Dancing in the Wind.
Night falls as I flit about
The Moon shines, brilliantly
