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.

My heart yearns for her, My heart begs for her.
My body wants to hold her, My body wants to protect her.
My mind wants her safe, My mind wants her secure.
She has stolen my love, She has the key to my heart.
My heart hurts because of her, My heart bleeds because of her.
My body aches because of her, My body kills because of her.
My mind hurts because of her, My mind cries because of her.
She doesn't love me, She doesn't even try.

I ever wanted
the time you spent
has changed me.
I wish it wasn't so
but what else
can I do?
I promise you though
I won't cry for you
So many wasted tears,
so many restless nights
spent wishing for
would've never been.
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
is move forward.

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
My HypocrisyI would fall in love too—My Hypocrisy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In love with the pure white lilies
And dip dyed roses all wrapped in red silk
In love with warm chocolate eyes
Dark and deep and mysterious in the night
In love with rough calloused hands
But long gentle fingers that brush away tears
In love with the graceful body that bends enthralled at the lightest touch
And I too would fall—
For soft whispered words
And careless "I need you"s from cold and pale lips
For the silver-tongued storyteller
Whose notes provide peace and guide the lights home
For the vibrant soul
Behind the multiple facets and platinum shell
For kind and bright thoughts
Shaped as sweet hearts between white teeth
I would fall in love too
With all of this and more—
But I cannot fall in love with you.

Knowing ill never be anything more
Despite the feelings i have
There will never be 'us'
Forever just friends
This always has been
With every single person I've liked in that way
Am i really that bad
That no one could possibly imagine me this way
Apart from those silly little boys whom i get an odd message off
Saying I'm 'hot'
I should send a picture
Why bother trying their luck?
It disgusts me
The thought of them thinking
'hey i could use her next,she doesn't mean anything'
I never reply
Why waste my time?
It sucks to know no one likes me
More that a 'friend'
It really makes me doubt
I see these cute couples
I think damn i wish it was me
But then I'm curious
Of who possibly likes me
I mean I've always wanted to know
Does anyone like me?
Not just any old like
More than I've ever imagined
I doubt myself a lot
Probably more than i should
But I've never received feedback or compliments that are good
I've always been laughed at

My demons are not real

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

"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

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

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.Sugarless2 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

I close her door behind me, and the only light that exists in this room is the dim light from the window. It's still storming horribly out there, so it's almost too dark to see. Why is she in this darkness? She has a lamp next to her bed...
