Let the eye remember
I saw against my will
Let his lashes tremble
But my heart is silent still
Let him weep a river
A river washes sin
Sons of man, forgive me
My heart has given in
Let the tongue conceal me
Wagging fast and thick
Let her body change me
Words to make you sick
Selfish in my sorrow
Tarnished in my pain
Licking up the swollen sky
To rid it of the stain
Let this face obey me
Let her look at ease
Kindly lead me forward
In search of others' dreams
Bend my mouth in answer
To crimes they all forgot
Lift it up to smile
At the battles daily fought
Let the mind remember
(Lest you all forget)
Peace is what you wish for
Sin is what you get
Man may weep a river
Tongues may carry on
Die to be a martyr
Live when life is gone

I heard someone scream. "Mattie, wake up!" I opened my eyes and saw my brother shaking me. "I'm awake, I'm awake" I told him while trying to make him stop. "Good, now come on, we have a meeting today" he said while leaving the room. I sat up and rubbed my eyes, I turned to the nightstand to grab my glasses and saw my big stuffed bear in the corner. "Hey Kuma, what are you doing in the corner?" I laughed at myself because I knew he was not going to answer me. I grabbed my glasses and got out of bed.
After I got dressed, I was brushing my hair when my brother came in. "Matthew, hurry up, I'm hungry" he said like if he was a little kid. "Then go make yourself some breakfast, you don't have to wait for me" I answered after I finished with my hair and was putting the brush down. "I know, but sadly, I don't make pancakes like the great Matthew Williams" he said, being sarcastic. "Just go to the kitchen, Alfred, I'll be down in a second" I said. "You better be" he

Feliciano Vargas was just so innocent. Always smiling, always laughing, always loving the world. He always walked with a spring in his step, causing his curl to bounce. But, little did the Italian, or anyone for that matter, realize how hurt Feliciano was going to be.
It was a cold day in Berlin, the proud capital of Germany. The date was January 16th, 1944, and the young Italian man walked through the big halls as he widely grinned while humming to himself. He loved living with Ludwig. Ludwig Weillshmidt was Feli's best friend; he was so happy when the German had asked him to move in. Ludwig had been acting weird lately, though, all secretive and stuff. He didn't dwell on it too much, though. And he didn't dare ask Ludwig what was going on, he knew better than that. The Italian continued down the big hallway, loving the warm feeling that flowed all throughout the house. Despite the numbing cold outside, it was nice and

Where do we begin?
In our minds, we progress
In our bodes, we digress
In our heart, to learn
What is right, we discern.
But what of it, forewarned,
In its nascent form
The inability to infer
Just why it differs?
No one can comprehend
Or pay with amends;
The prize of destiny-
A life of bigotry
A hateful word to confess
And they couldn't care less
For the reason it was condemned
For there was no one to defend
That it was just created that way,
But that's not what they say
They knew when it was born,
And adorned it with scorn,

Russia x Reader Sunflower Dance
I walked out along the town down to my favorite spot. A wide field with sunflowers all through it. Funny next to my love of vodka are these precious gems of sunlight. I have always loved sunflowers ever since I met her (name). I fondly remember when she first brought me here to this wonderful place, but that was so long ago that she had to leave back for her country since she ways the country of (country you want). Its sad to say that I might never see her again and dance with her in this beautiful place like when we were kids. *sigh* but the festival is starting soon so I must go. I saw a white sunflower among the brightly colored others and picked it thinking of her my sunflower (name).

Mr. Ted by my side,
And listen hard for the thing
That crawls around outside.
He'll start with the scratching,
It's always the same,
His claws carving the face
Of the wooden door frame.
Then he'll move onto the blood
Seeping beneath my door,
Dripping from the walls,
Covering the floor.
The wardrobe will squeak,
Those green eyes appear,
Voices will whisper
Dark words in my ear.
Their dead hands will tug
At the edge of my sheets
And insects will crawl
All over my feet.
I lay and wait
For their games to begin.
But tonight will be different,
I whisper with a grin,
Tonight I will show
Those monsters a scare.
They can come back again,
IF they dare.
deviantART and MasturbationAvenue Q has it right when they bluntly say "the Internet is for porn."deviantART and Masturbation6 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
While Avenue Q's statement is broad, it can be applied to nearly everything found on the 'net. The Internet truly is for porn. Sure, all you've got to do to see some great porn is type up redtube into your search engine or you could just meander on over to websites like tumblr, facebook, and even deviantART. After all, what are these sites other than tools to masturbate with?
Yeah, I get it. I'm sure everyone is raising their eyebrows at their screens going, "I don't use dA, facebook, or tumblr to masturbate sure, I look at a little porn on occasion, but never on those three sites or sites similar to it." Maybe my three example-sites don't have in-your-face pornography available to anyone who wants it (although they do have their flashes of softcore porn, just wait around a bit and you'll see it all). The masturbation that occurs on these sites is a little more subtle. While it doesn't exactly ma

The quilt was so soft on your flesh and at the end of the quilt your companion was curled up in a ball, in a deep wonderful sleep.

"In Soviet Russia, deer hunt you."
Latvia just shook his little blonde head as he walked past the room that the other Baltic Nations were currently occupying. For two nations that were supposedly terrified of the Russian they made fun of him enough when he wasn't around.
At first he had to admit that it was funny, it eased the tension between the three of them, but now... well, now he actually knew Ivan.
Don't misunderstand, it wasn't like their relationship was any different than before, he had just seen Ivan through a different perspective.
Raivis wasn't even sure when it happened, but Russia somehow felt different to him.
When he was a younger nation he had thought Ivan was a bully, the other Baltic Nations feeling the same way - but Raivis had grown some respect for the Russian. Through all of the hard times he had been there for his nations, to protect them.
Some would just tease, say that he only wanted them to use and abuse, but he had never given up on them, even if they had no

More Than a Nightmare For as long as I can remember, my dreams have always ended the same way. The dreams always turn nightmarish when some demonic-looking creature comes out and tries to kill me. Its appearance is always the same: a dark red, bleeding face that resembles a human skull resting on the body of a four-legged, black-haired beast. Its ear-shattering wail always alerted me of its presence. My dream is often normal up until it appears. Nothing bad happens, until a chill is sent down my spine, causing my body to become covered in goosebumps, which is when the monster appears and attacks me. I wake up in a cold sweat right before it kills me every time, along with fear throughout my whole body. After many years of dealing with it, I eventually learned to cope with it, but I'm still kind of afraid of what would happen if it got to me. However, they have become increasingly bothersome within the past week.More Than a Nightmare3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

But you pull me in
Maybe it's your eyes, full of happiness
Or your long, wavy hair
It could even be your smile
One that is so big and bright
I don't understand why I feel like this
Every time I see you, talk to you
Or even just imagine you with me
My heart races 10x fast
It only happens when I think of you
You entice me, make me happy
And most of all, you love me back
That must be it.. No one else could love me back as much as you do
No one else would put up with me
I guess that's also why I love you so much too
I'm glad you're different from the rest
Because compared to you, the rest are like clouds in the sky
All pretty much the same and something you see every day
Please stay different from the rest
And please stay with me too.
