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
APH- The Death of FelicianoAPH- The Death of Feliciano3 years ago in Drama More Like This
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

No power, no control.
You have to obey.
Your wish to do otherwise is in no one's interest-
we won't help;

Everything happens so fast.
You're just watching, observing-

You're selfish. they say.
Yes I am.
I'm sorry for being in love and not wanting to leave their side.
I'm sorry for caring about my sick grandmother and staying by her side.
I'm sorry for not being able to watch my parents fight.

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

a drifting continent sifting
over shivering tree tops.
Watery clouds explore along the

My skewed sight steadily begins to
repaint the scattered stars and
one by one like raindrops,
they burst across the sky
Breathing down in thoughtful shafts
upon the inside of my eyelids.
I'm thankful to be an insomniac.
RussiaxReader: Sweet Dreams Are Made Of TheseYou were warm and cosy that night, snuggled up in your cosy quilt, safe from the cold world outside your window. 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. Goodness knows why Flying Mint Bunny was sleeping on the end of your bed but it was. In the distance you could hear the chirping of birds but you didn't mind. Your bed was a rich, burgundy colour with matching curtains. Goodness knows what possessed you to then paint the room jade but you did. You made soft, whistling noises in your sleep as your hair draped on your pillow. You deserved your sleep after a long day of shopping with Poland. Your feet practically ached and your head felt like it was having a wild disco since it was throbbing so much. Despite all this, you were quite content in your bed.

I held the bag in one hand, sliding the key in the door with the other one. The door creaked as it opened and I quickly closed it so the outside's cold air wouldn't come in.
'Elisa? I'm home!'
Elisa was my adorable, 6 years old little sister. She was used to stay on her own since I often had to go get groceries and such and she never wanted to come. Besides I had no other solution, since the 'car crash' it was just her and me. It took so long for her to understand that 'daddy and mommy won't be coming back from the party'...
But she was with me now, safe and healthy. I heard her tiny footsteps in the staircase and smiled, dropping the bag of groceries in the kitchen. Elisa giggled happily and hugged me from behind. I patted her head gently.
She giggles again and let go of me, lifting her arms towards me so I could pick her up. I held her with one arm, the other hand busy taking food out of the bag.

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

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 Nightmare2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

who's faithful until both are dust
Sees through a set of similar eyes
Knows when you speak truth or lies
A shoulder, there to comfort you
A true voice, that knows what's best for you
A conspirator to make joy and have fun,
who knows what's right or when something shouldn't be done
An uplifting soul, who changes your mood,
makes you feel merry, when before, you brood
An ear to listen to every scheme,
to help determine reality or dream
A face that smiles and you know everywhere,
it shows their thoughts and when they care
A body that's warm and has its own beat,
one that's fun to see, and to meet
So, a friend is someone like you,
who's faithful, brave, honest and true
And no matter how many people I see
I will never see a better friend than you for me

"Any moment now, _______." he breathed, tired yet energetic.
It's been a few weeks since you have decided to commit in a relationship with Mathias. It was hard to say yes. Believe it or not, before you entered his life, the Danish man would bring home another lady from the bar per night. You, yes, were just another girl at the bar. You drank moderately and always had eyes for Mathias. Little did you know he eyed you too. But you were smarter than that; even after agreeing to be his girl; you never slept with him once, until you were ready. And now, you were.
At the peak of you climax, you heard the chiming of a cell phone. Seeing as though you both share the same ringtone, it was hard to tell whose phone it was.

All it wants is to destroy me,
and it's doing one hell of a job.

"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

And find someone who's better than you.
