Of Prison, Of Pain, Of GaysMake me whole, give me your soul,Of Prison, Of Pain, Of Gays3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So I can hold you closer to my heart,
To help me complete mine,
As a reminder that our devotion
Isn't just a simple line.
I gave you myself to keep on a shelf
As a promise of loyalty, of care, of euphoria
Of a pact to never give in, never break down, never be ashamed
As a tribute to our love,
A fastener for open wounds
That taunt me from above.
I shared with you my secrets, due
To bind our trust in blood,
These words of hate and hurt
Of prison, pain, and wishes
That I let stand inert.
Share with me a memory
To hold together my mind
To cover this chasm of emptiness, of loneliness
To fuel the fire to live,
To stoke my human core
To remember to forgive.
Stay brave as feelings you pave
To make yourself a martyr,
To make my gifts be not in vain
So I may carry on, too, soldier
Although the veil of death remains.
InsecutityI just cant help but thinkInsecutity3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As i walk down the road
People stop and stare
They laugh and judge
Smile and joke
I walk around
Looking like I'm guilty
Of some severe crime
I just cant deny
My feelings inside
I'm not size 10
I'm not the media perfect model
I'm far from it
I try and make sense of it
But i cant
Its like a foreign language
I cant hide it
Strangers can sense it
I look around me
I look behind
I'm afraid of people
As if someone's stalking me
Even though no one is
i worry deep down inside
But i mustn't let my insecurity over run me

I can't hold your eyes
They are not mine to hold
Sweet and seductive

The lips I'll never know
Your fluid movements
Make me jealous
But what need do I have
To move like you?

Hear that phrase?

It was Christmas time in Ooo, and Princess Bubblegum's castle was as busy as can be. The princess had been planning months in advance for the Christmas party. She wanted nothing to go wrong. She checked her guest list twice, and more to be extra certain. The decorations were flawless and shiny. The lights on the Christmas were perfectly aligned on the piney branches. They had enough plates and flatware for each of the guests and plenty of food to spare. What could go wrong? Everything was perfect as far as Bubblegum knew.
"Oh, hi Marceline," While she visually examined the room once more, it took a while for what she just said to sink in. Marceline was standing behind her. How? Why? Bubblegum made sure to write in bolded capital letters on the guest list: NO VAMPIRES! "H-How did you get in

I promise you though
I won't cry for you
So many wasted tears,
so many restless nights
spent wishing for

I don't want to
but I think it's time
that we say goodbye.
We were never meant
to be this broken,
words were never meant
to be this half spoken.
Remind me again
where did it all start
to fall apart?
I never wanted it
to end like this
but I knew,
oh I knew,
it would end eventually.
Those minutes spent apart
turn to months
and those subtle hints
turn to future insecurities.
2,000 miles took
what could've been.
But all we

My demons are not real
My fears are not important
It's all in my head
Yes, you are right
It's all in my head since it's a mental disorder
You scared me away
With your words cutting like knifes
I made the decision to cut you off
To stop your poison words
To stop the pain of your words
Although you were supposed to be my rock
6 years later
Months since we last spoke
I decided to fight my demons by myself
I don't need you to make it worse
I'm lowering my medication
I'm more happy
I'm more free
I did that all by myself
Forever a broken bond
But I'm mentally getting better
All by myself
I'm sane again without your hurtful words
Does it make you proud?
No because I'm with HER
Because I disappointed you
Because all you want is for me to be straight
Atleast she helped me to get sane again
And I don't need my medication anymore
Because I cut you off
All by myself
SugarlessIt was a quiet meal. Nothing but the sound of her utensils chinking against the plate echoed through the large dining hall. As she set her glass down and pursed her lips slightly into a frown, she pondered why it was mandatory to have such a long table when it was only her who was to eat there. Everyday at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And only to repeat it the next day, and the day after that. She sighed.Sugarless3 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Is there something wrong with the food?" Peppermint butler asked, coming to her side.
She shook her head. "The food is fine. It's just..."
"Hey! You can't go in there!" a muffled voice of a banana guard said behind the large doors.
A laugh cackled. "Try and stop me!" another, but female voice countered.
Before the princess could question what was going on, the doors were suddenly flung open and in came none other than the vampire queen herself. A mischievous grin was plastered on her face as she floated above the table towards the pink girl. Banana guards came rushing in, growling a

"Take a break," she tells you, hovering in an undulating pattern just above and behind your head. Her hands thread between the layers in your hair. Gooseflesh pebbles your neck and shoulders as she kneads her way through it to scrub the rough of her finger pads into your scalp. But you have important work to do; you have a kingdom to run.
"My work is important, Marceline."
She chuckles, just once, and annoyance flares in your chest.
"It is," you insist, plunging an elbow backward. It connects with a jean-clad thigh; Marceline hisses and twists up and over your head. She hangs there, upside down and frowning. Her hair spills like ink over your desk, obscuring your paperwork in a shifting pool of night.
"It is," you revisit, but quieter this time and without the physical backup. After several moments, during which her frown only sets more firmly in the creased corners of her mouth, you look away and knot your

"Cake, clothesline him!"
Spidering her way across the scorched and patchy landscape, Cake stretched herself in front of the barracuda-dragon's path and wrapped her long, rubbery legs around an outstretched tree limb, then flung her upper body over to an outcropping rock formation in the opposite cliff wall. The beast caught itself just below the chin on Cake's stomach as its feet kept moving forward, sliding out from underneath, toppling it to the ground on its back.
As it writhed and screeched and sneezed out tiny fireballs, Fionna came dashing up from the rear, sword in the air. Teeth grinding sharply, she deftly sidestepped the onslaught of rogue fl

Akito sighed "Fine we'll go at lunch and find it."
Kazuki didn't mind having to go. That meant they could go by the 1st year's class.
At lunch they both went up to the third floor and to the library. Kazuki casually looked into each classroom looking to see which one the girl from last night was in.
"Dude, what are you doing?" his friend asked after the second classroom.
"Well I saw this girl last night and she was a first year." Kazuki looked into the next classroom.
"Okay. Was she hot or something?" he seemed confused as to why Kazuki would want to talk to a random girl a year younger than him.
"No she was just really weird. Oh well." Kazuki said as they passed the last classroom.
"So you like weird girls?" His friend asked.
"No I don't... Wait it's not like that."

No, you get peace for eternity
At the cost of a single cut

Are all those people
Left standing at your funeral
Trying to figure out
How they'll be able
To live in a world
Without you in it.
Yet you have the audacity to think
You could take something as important
As your life away from us,
To put our hearts at stake
And throw your life away
Because you can't take
The struggle of living.
What you don't see
Is that your life isn't yours,
It belongs to me
It belongs our mom and our dad

And that girl you wish you had
Your life never belonged to you
It is a gift that belongs

And you think you have the right
To just throw that away

That we could be cast astray,
Well i won't be
i love you too much for that
And whenever you try leave
I'll always bring you back
Because your death doesn't happen to you
It happens to me

She told this story one day while she did beadwork and a few of her grandchildren played nearby. She remembered her own grandmother, the one who raised her as a little girl. She talked about a time many years ago, the last time she saw her grandmother.
"My grandmother lived on a place where she had a barn and grain holders and chickens and horses. She used to let me help her take care of the chickens. The horses roamed out to pasture, coming in sometimes for hay she always had ready for them. She and I lived there together. My older cousin, a young man then, stayed with us from time to time.
"My grandmother had adopted my mother a long time ago, see, and then when my mother died, just thirty-four years old, my grandmother took me to live with her. My sisters and brother went to my other grandmother but my grandmother wanted me with her. I was just a little girl then, not even old en

Bird Bones sat down on the curb of her sidewalk with Eric, whilst slurping on a cherry popsicle. It was a sunny summer afternoon, summer vacation in full swing by now. BB and Eric spent more time together than ever now; almost every day since school had ended. They both enjoyed it as much as the other, but for some reason today, BB could notice Eric was particularly quiet. She shifted on the sidewalk and took a better look at him. He wasn’t sad-looking, but he looked deep in thought. He had been like that all day that day. He had barely touched his popsicle and it was starting to drip onto the pavement.
“Hey, Eric?” BB finally chimed in. He looked over at her. “What are you thinking about in that big hair-head of yours?”
Eric chuckled slightly. He sighed and took a slurp of his popsicle. “Well…” He said reluctantly. “It’s just..something weird happened to me yesterday, and I haven’t been able to shake it…It
