ZombiesThe dead stumble into the night
Empty graves left open
Under the moons eerie light
The smell of brains is potent
Horrified Screams pierce through the air
Ghastly figures roar through the town
On destructive paths, no one knows where
Terrified beings dragged to the ground
With blood, they'll paint the morning skies
Killing everything in sight
Under the silver-lit moon, it's no surprise
The undead will win the fight
Everyone becomes a mortal foe
Civil war in the streets
If you have fear, don't let it show
The zombies plot is almost complete
Pain and agony in every shout
They ignore their merciful cries
The human race they will wipe out
An promise you can't deny
Crimson eyes wathing the wicked
The chaos is quickly spread
Murder is a plague being transmitted
As if the streets were paved in red
The population has decreased
The battle was won
Now they will return to peace
For the bloody war was done

They're coming. I can smell them. The scent of rotting meat and blood.
It's not like in the movies. They're intelligent they can think, they know enough how to pull a trigger.
The scariest are the ones who died most recently, because there muscles and brains aren't very rotten, so they think and move the best.
They think like people, cruel and caniballistic, and the most recent treat the others like slaves, because they're honestly all their good for. After a certain point, they are utterly incapable of independent thought.
They don't feel pain, they don't feel fear, and the only one who talked to me was one who had recently eaten, and all he said was that all there was was an all consuming hunger that made everything else unimporant. To eat was all that was important. Morals that were once sacred in life disappear in death.
They don't starve. I will. I'm very close to my end.
I won't be able to stay here much longer, and they've laid seige to

a stone's throw

mildewing on the pool.
Your face was sleepy
and they did not recognize
Who dressed you that morning?
Who gently combed out your hair
and zipped up
your yellow boots
so you could squash puddles

Mother will tell stories

and pretend it is your shadow
playing on the wall
And father will wait

The secret to good writingI've been studying writing in-depth for the past few months. Like, the technical details of how a novel fits together and what publishers look for.The secret to good writing3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've discovered what appears to be The Secret. I keep running across published authors with lots of books published who swear by this particular secret formula. The trouble is, it's a bit hard to explain because it's kind of technical.
It's scenes and sequels.
A scene is, well, a scene in which something happens. It goes like this:
You have a character. They are trying to accomplish something. But the bad guy interferes, or there's conflict from other main characters. The point of view character fails in accomplishing his goal. In fact, things get worse.
POV character: One night, Sonic is out on the town when he hears sirens.
Goal: Sonic wants to help.
Conflict: He follows the noise and discovers the police surrounding the water monster Chaos.
Disaster: Sonic attacks Chaos and thinks he's beat him do

Loki glanced up from his book to the girl standing before him. She was holding a tray with very little on it, but enough to get by. The girl smiled slightly at the prisoner before taking the book from his hands.
"You need to do something else besides mope."
____ carefully set down Loki's book so that he would not lose his place. As she turned, a hand met her side. She stopped and looked up at Loki with confusion evident in her eyes. Loki didn't like to show this kind of emotion, especially those close to Thor.
It was true that ____ and Thor were good friends. Loki often wondered if there was something more. He knew _____ was too good for his "brother." Loki believed that she deserved someone better--she deserved him.
"How is my brother?"
____'s eyebrow raised in question, "I thought you claimed him to be something else."

Since we wrote our parting song
Help yourself in, by all means
I am tied to life machines
Haven't eaten, drunk and slept
Much from when I saw you last
I call it a "Love diet"
But the shrinks won't let me fast
They have used such scary things
Just to lead me off the track
But nobody could convince
Me that you're not coming back
They don't know about our deal
You have promised and you will
Always come back to my side

“We need to get to Solitude, I don't want to be late.” You explained, shaking your head. The man had a bottomless stomach.
“You are the worst sister ever.”
You sighed, he still saw you as a sister. You wished he could see you for more than that.
A trio of wolves spotted you two. Farkas unsheathed his sword and charged, killing them all in 2 strikes. His fighting style always amazed you. It seemed like he was never injured, he always looked graceful.
You remembered when you found out the secret of the Companions. Farkas transformed to 'rescue' you from the trap you set yourself in. You could have shouted the door right off, but then he would know you were the Dragonborn.

I have noticed that a lot of people are sad, and that is mainly because they won't be getting many presents this Christmas due to financial circumstances.
I want to change that, so I have decided to hold a major Secret Santa event.
Please Read the Rules and put a smile on a deviant this Christmas
The Secret Santa Presents will be separated into 3 Sections.

They care about no one but themselves.
They drive nice cars and have casual sex.
They play their crude music on their radios,
And on their cell phones they text.
They wear Hollister shirts and Armani suits
Abercrombie jeans and Nike shoes
But when it comes to artists like Poe,
They just never seem to have a clue.
They go from girl to girl like a bunch of frogs
Jumping from lily pad to lily pad.
Unfaithful and unreliable is what they are,
Which is what makes the girls so sad.
They never had to starve & never went hungry
As they always had food on the table.
They were allowed to watch their favorite shows
Because they never went without cable.
And because of that they have no passion,
They have no substance, they have no depth.
It is like they live without a spirit
The way they look so dead.
But while they lack the passion, spirit, and vigor
That I think I have,
They seem to always have the happiness
That I really wish I had.
The Revenge of ZombiesRise, my zombies,The Revenge of Zombies3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
for we shall have the night,
that humans took for centuries.
We shall overcome,
with blood in our teeth,
and blood in our hearts.
For we zombies have eternal life,
with super strength, decelerate powers, and absolute fear.
We fight together with honor, bravery, and courage,
that makes us eternal.
We hunt for blood, we hunt for our fate,
And we will protect our beloved one's from humans.
Come my brothers, sisters, and all of you.
Let us show what humans don't have,
by biting them with full power,
from our powers of blood,
and to protect our nation of zombies.
And when that time comes,
we shall rise together,
to unleash total destruction.
Let the zombie nation begin.

Burdened with the day-to-day task
Of dragging bone-weary limbs
Across vast roads of asphalt and concrete
And of wrapping worn-out fingers
Around the steering wheels of vehicles and life
Just to fulfill an existence
We can't even comprehend the meaning of.
(Our brains don't have the capacity.)
We secretly yearn for energy like infernos
To course through our vacant veins,
(Crimson blood long gone, poured out like water through parched skin.)
For even one neuronal cerebral response
That signals we are more than hollow husks
Just so that
We can feel alive again.

heart in a box;
bladder and spleen disinfected,
wrapped up like a birthday.
His legs followed suit,
each one mended
and folded like an accordion -
toes tightly shut,
and knees zipped.
Next came his arms,
two delinquent acrobats -
first the right one
tightly sleeved and fitted,
waving like the last night
of the circus;
then the left -
its listless shrug
shriveled under the tissue paper.
His torso followed discreetly
as if wondering
where everybody went
and who would still be up
at this hour.
His head came last -
crated like apples at Christmas;
his eyebrows permanently surprised
upon his forehead
and his tongue
a final, flat declaration

Zombies ate my neighbors
and then they came for me.
I ran into the house,
they ran into a tree.
They smashed up all my windows,
they smashed open my doors,
I opened up my fridge,
and then I drank a Coors.
First they ate my cat
and then they ate my dog,
but when they got to me
I was passed out like a log.
They picked me up and carried me
over to my bed
and then they left without a trace:
my brain was already dead.

Think of happy places I've been
I look one more time before I take that first step
Open my mouth for the last time, this is my final breath
It's like seeing the world for the first time
I'm walking a tightrope, the super thin line
My fear's nothing but beneath me
Society's staring in awe, what a sight to see.
I have no feelings, they've all slipped away
This is the part where black and white fade to gray
Sickened, I stumble, waving my arms in fright
I guess my downfall was everyone else's delight.
In a blink, the rope snapped in two
A horror I never thought I knew
I broke away from society
The riskiest choice I'd ever had to do.

Loud and approaching voices pulled Loki from his thoughts as he stood and rushed out into the hall to find the band of misfits. A certain mop of (h/c) hair grabbed his attention and he set off to catch up with the slowly dispersing group.
He wanted to call out her name and have her rush to meet him, but if he did that then everyone would know his weakness. Luckily, said warrior happened to turn her head and notice the man just behind her and the others.
She turned and pushed through the warriors. Her face was marred by cuts and bruises, but still she smiled and did her best to keep from crying. Loki went to wrap his a

That means you are giving up, slowly.
You just stare around you and wonder
Where was the life you once loved so much?
Where was the life where everything was simple?
Where was the life where there were no worries?
You stare intently stare at nothing.
Just a space filled with nothing but blankness.
You analyse your life and how much it's worth,
Thinking no one loves you, no one even cares.
The ache how can you describe that ache?
Literally drying your heart as if it was wet laundry.
Your breath grows heavier, slower
Your dainty fingers dance below your pool of eyes,
The moisture stains your finger and you stare
There's only one way to let out the pain:
Cry and release the demons.
Your Suicide LetterAll the doctors and all the pillsYour Suicide Letter3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Just can't cure how it feels
To be broken up so deep inside
That you swear you've already died.
Therapy is just a waste,
It puts your thoughts in a different place.
The promises that have all been said
Are just made up and in your head.
The crying is worthless, the hoping and dreaming.
Because nothing makes sense when your blood is screaming.
The sharp objects, they call to you,
"Make some cuts that are brand new."
The laughter means nothing on the outside,
Because it's from the times you've lied.
This story, however, is the truth; You're too tired to lie.
So tonight you guess this poem is your way to say goodbye.

I hear the pitiful moans.
I grasp tight on my pistol,
In the dark all alone.
They come from the shadows,
And they tear down my walls.
They follow my steps,
As I run down the halls.
I shoot as I tremble,
I keep them away.
With a cold dripping fear,
I keep them at bay.
They're crawling so closer,
I can't hold them off.
They grab and they gnaw me,
Please! Just please make it stop!!!
But you came along,
And you blew them to pieces.
Not a knight in white armor,
But you've still left me speechless.
We head down the stairs,
We have no time to waste.
We go as a pair,
To our inevitable fate.
The creatures become numerous,
Though the few that we shot through.
Before we go down,
I just wanted to tell you.
Though they scare me to death,
Though the terrors are rife.
Fighting zombies with you,
I had the time of my life.
