you wouldn't understand
so I don't have to shrink
under your judgement.
My third eye turned inwards
is jury enough;
never experiencing anything but
playbacks of bygones
of a girl no longer here.
All I know is hate for my past,
so I'll never let you see it.
All you know is love for my present,
so you don't understand
why compliments make my gaze
can't fight the current,
into the depths
of my own Mariana Trench.
Through these lies,
my past infects who I've become;
sickly purple veins
climb my limbs like ivy
till they reach my heart
and shut it down.
I'm so sorry I haven't been honest,
but if I didn't give myself a fresh start,
IntroductionI would like to introduce you to me. I have three names but I will not tell you them.Introduction2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
My first name means "dark one".
My favourite things are the deepest parts of the oceans of my dreams, where the sun's rays don't reach, and I can breathe just fine, and I don't stop swimming down even though I am filled with terror. (Or is it the thrill of the unknown?)
I find my place in the world's somber and thoughtful music injected into my ears, speakers as needles, so very much like heroin. I am stretched to be everywhere I can be by the sounds that explore and entice their canvass of silence. Maynard James Keenan has been my soul's best friend for as long as I can remember, but he'll never know.
My curiousity probes every direction, under the ever-present compression of space's (vacuum), ahem, embrace. (Safe, but not quite comforting.) I love, without prejudice, anything new I can unearth (bare fingers in the dirt), to then be stored in the perpetually hungry midnigh

To make Germany younger then he is, I'm going with his age since he stopped being an empire and became a nation (he became a nation in 1918).
A lot of the micronations and microstates are real, though most don't have Hetalia characters so I'm just making them up. I felt that Germany would need to speak with a more then just Sealand and the others who have characters (which most of them aren't even in Europe to begin with!). And yes, Nova Roma is a real micronation and yes, it is based off the Roman Empire.
Also, warning, Germany ended up being OOC in this, but then again, this is fanfiction and everyone in fanfiction becomes OOC at some point.

She had probably stopped by to grab it and forgot to lock the door, but when I saw a pair of her shoes lying by the door, I soundly guessed that she was still here.Melt-8-31-13-Steamy Affairs2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I shut the door behind me and dropped the keys on the kitchen table, then opened the kitchen cabinet and withdrew a large glass which I proceeded to fill with water. I chugged it and refilled it again. I had been working out and as a result, I was tired and very thirsty.
Wanting to see Jazmine, I left the kitchen and searched the living room. No sign of her there. I guessed that she was upstairs, and a small part of me hoped that she was in the bedroom. A guy can dream.
I walked towards the staircase and noticed another pair of shoes at the base of the staircase. They were a pair of white flats. I did not remember Jazmine owning anything like that, and besides they were too small for her

It was just a regular evening. Me and my friend were both tired after a long day so we decided to sit down and watch some TV. She suggested this show called Mad Men, which I'd never seen before, but she raved about it so I went along with her and watched it.
I should probably tell you about the two of us. I'm Mitch, just your standard guy. "0 years old, quite skinny with short, blonde hair. My friend is Alexa, a budding actress with long blonde hair.
Personally I didn't think it was that good, not really my thing. However, there was one person in the show who I really didn't like and that was the role played by Christina Hendricks. I made the mistake of telling Alexa this fact. Suddenly I was bombarded with questions.
"How can you not like her? She's probably my favourite actress"
Then came the three words that I would regret for the rest of my life, "She's too fat." The look of sheer anger on her face was something that would be in my nightmares for weeks.
"So you're saying that I'm f

She couldn't deny that she was sort of enjoying it though...Of Girls and Coils6 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
Baily was a half-Indian young woman with an amazing dark complextion and a perfect curvy body. And she was also quite proud of her very generous chest, which stuck out proudly from her body, showing up as a large swelling from the tape. She grunted, her legs and arms bound tight under the strong tape. She looked very much like a mummy or a fly spun up in a spider's web.
She huffed, her chest raising and falling with the strain. But then she heard the door behind her creak open.
'About time she came back!' Baily thought, believing it to be her friend returning to release her. She made a muffled shout but there was no reply.

It was saturday night when it happened. It was nothing special, just a typical saturday night.
I was slumped on the sofa, TV remote in hand. I was watching some sort of game show before the incident.
My show finished and X-Factor came on. God I hate that show. I just didn't get why everyone liked these things. I couldn't stand them. But I was stuck watching this. Batteries were dead in the remote, and I'm the kind of person who is just too lazy to get up and change the channel, besides, I was comfortable where I was, surely I could get through one episode. I'd probably fall asleep anyway.
So there I was, watching. Dermot came on stage, doing his presenting bit, when suddenly light burst out of the screen and blinded me completely.
I opened my eyes to find myself stood behind some sort of big screen. I could hear the crowd on the other side, screaming their heads off.
A man walked over to me, who I later found out to be the rpoducer of the show.

I had always admired Katy Perry. I loved her music, her looks, everything about her.
I was watching MTV one afternoon, there was a special Katy Perry show on which I just had to watch.
It was after Firework had finished being played when it happened. Katy Perry did her little presenting part in between the songs, when se said, "Press the red button where you can see exactly what it's like being me"
Obviously, I couldn't resist. I grabbed the remote and pressed the red button straight away. Suddenly, light shit out of my TV screen. For a few seconds I couldn't see anything. All I could feel was an imense pulling sensation all over my body.
My body hair was pulled out of my skin, leaving it smooth and soft all over. It felt like someone was grabbing onto my hair and pulling it. It grew and grew until it reached to almost the bottom of my back but then, it moved itself and tied up into a long black pony tail.
I felt my skull crack under my skin, moving into a completely different shape. I

I hated pop music, I was more of a rock kind of guy.
However, my sister loved it. I went into her room once, never again. Her room was bright pink, full of poster of crap bands and "music" artists. It was the one's around her bed that I hated most, it was an entire wall dedicated to that Godforsaken Cheryl Cole. I hated her and her music with a passion. My sister would play it all the time though, sometimes so loud you could probably hear it streets away, let alone from my room next door.
It happened when I was trying to do my homework one time. She had Promise This playing full blast. I somehow got through a whole ten seconds before I had to walk in. I opened her door and erupted my anger at her.

It was another boring day. Black clouds overhead, stuck inside my house with nothing to do.
I turned on the radio to try and make things a bit less bleak. It was a good ten minutes before the event. The moment that would change my entire life forever.
The songs on the radio were half decent.
"Good playlist so far," I thought to myself. Then that godforsaken Swagger Jagger came on.
"I had to go and jinx it didn't I. Bloody hell I hate this pathetic excuse for music. How is she even being played on this station, any station in fact. Just because she was on that bloody X-Factor. She didn't even win the damn thing."
But, for some reason unbeknownst to me, I couldn't help but dance to it.
"What the hell am I doing?" I thought as I watched my arms and legs move, unable to control them anymore.
But, as the chorus hit, I suddenly felt an agonising pain in every limb on my body, yet somehow, I continued to dance, getting better with every second. Words also began to flood into my head.

of we go and far away
we dream ourselves airborne
feet leaving the solidity

the grass springing back gently
as our body floats upwards
eyes travel to new stars
nebulae bursting with colour
comets trailing sparkling debris
from both cold and warm hearts
that gracefully navigate
the entirety of solar systems
taking years in their slow travel
to come around and be seen again
stars fade away
the spaces between
becoming something more
the dreaming mind travels
further than before
where darkness is peace
with beauty hidden somewhere inside
we see something so beautiful
unseen hands reach out to caress
a new light we have rediscovered
warm flickers and brightening glow
the smile of all is sure to know
that we have found the place

Just like the love scented hands you are holding me with.
And these words are words I could never speak aloud,
Because when I am confronted by your eyes,

But once you've made it to the top,
There's nowhere to go but to drop.

Waiting for you're heart to be filled. Or Blood to be spilled,
A dying happiness, a growing emptiness,
You're Aimless, worthless; all you ever wanted was acceptance.
You may be Restless, Soulless,
