Almost every day of my life
I have been called a demeaning name,
and they all hurt me
even when my mom tried to explain
how being smart was a good thing
being called those names
still sent me to a place

not pitiful depression,
but awefully severe
so much so
that even in my 10th grade year
my demons come back to haunt me
with their same old cheer
you'll never be good enough
you don't matter
i beat myself up inside
because of silly words
that should have never been said
that is what bullying
can do to an innocent child
it can make their world
go completely gray
make them feel so unimportant
until they simply fade away
i get so scared
when my depression spikes
all I can do is sit in a corner
shaking and crying
until the feeling goes away
i would never wish my experiences
unto even my worst enemy
but yet, this type of verbal abuse
mentally kills thousands of childre

The Power of FriendshipThe sun was brighter than it had been in years, or so it seemed to the pale gray vampire as she hurried to shut the door behind her visitor, who let out a surprised yelp as she tossed him aside. As soon as the door clicked shut, she whirled around, hissing, to face whoever had disturbed her dark, sun-free peace; she relaxed visibly when she realized it was only Finn, who had an obnoxious habit of forgetting her weaknesses.The Power of Friendship3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Oops," Finn said with a nervous laugh, looking up at the floating vampire whose eyes were still slightly blazing with anger. "Hey, sorry, dude. I guess I---" Marceline's stare silenced him immediately, and he remained frozen, staring back at Marceline until she finally shrugged and hovered over him and back to her couch. Finn let out a relieved sigh and followed after her, lowering himself slowly to her couch so not to injure his behind; he had learned the hard way that the vampire paid little attention to mortal conveniences when purchasing furniture.

Die Tonightif I'd lie into your armsDie Tonight1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
would you lull me back to sleep
and if I were to die tonight
would you give me a kiss goodbye?
would you hold my hand so tight
till I'd feel too numb to hurt
would you let the tears in my eyes
melt their way into your heart
and even if it was a lie
would you tell me it's alright
oh, please tell me, would you cry
if I were to die tonight?
as you threw the knife at me
I found myself too blind to see
and as you painted life in red
my blood was spilled and stained your hands
with every hit and every scold
I thought you were trying to make me strong
but now I come to realise
that I was nothing to your eyes
there's so much better you have seen
and I can be nothing but just me
and you were trying to be honest
and that's so beautiful of you
but beauty kills and now I'm fallen
because your words have cut me through
and as I lay at your feet bleeding
you take a look into my eyes
oh, would you cry, I'm only asking
if I were to die tonight?

I like hanging with my friends.
I like acting like I don't have emotions.
I like hiding my true-self from my friends because I don't want to be judged.
I'm nice to you because that's the way I am, not because I want something in return.
I smile when I see you, because I think you're beautiful, not just some hot girl.
I say complement's to you because I think you don't hear it enough.
I hate it that you judge me when you don't even know me.
I hate it that you won't even give me a chance.
I smile and you return it with a frown of disgust.
I hate it that you date assholes, and then say that "All" guys are like this.
I'm nothing like those guys, and there are guys just like me out there.
I actually want to get to know you.
I want to know how your life is going.
I want to feel what you feel.
I want to get close to you.
I want to kiss you.
I want love you.
I want to stand on the highest building of the world for everyone to hear me yell "This girl is perfect!!"
Yes I'm a guy.

It was supposed to be a simple recon mission.
Yeah; if only.
Superboy stood in front of the Boy Wonder as he finished downloading whatever files it was he needed into his wrist computer. "Can't you go any faster?" Superboy growled impatiently, resisting the urge to tap his foot like he'd sometimes seen Artemis do. If he were to be perfectly honest, just standing there and waiting with nothing to do but play guard was boring as all hell.
Robin just rolled his eyes and replied somewhat derisively, "Sorry, but I can't really rush technology. There's a lot to download." Superboy just groaned in response and continued to watch for any potential danger, finally giving into the urge to tap his foot a few times. "Almost..." Robin muttered, more to himself than Superboy, as he watched the digital copies of his face turn fr

Who lurks in the dark
The one you never notice
But who's always there
Just observing the world
Without really understanding it
And waiting for the day

We're Just GirlsMaking us prettyWe're Just Girls3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We'll cover our faces
With colors and paint
In all different places
Maybe you'll look
And it won't be wasted
Your lips are soft
The sweetest I've tasted
We're girls, we try
We want to be seen
Make us feel strong
And feel like a queen
But for most
We're just a face
And you'll never know
When our hearts will race
By touch of a hand
And look of a gaze
You walk right past
As if in a haze
Looking for Barbie
But she isn't real
Why don't you see us
Or know how we feel?
We can't look like models
Because we're just girls
We try to look pretty
Put our hair in curls
But no one will see it
We'll just go back home
Feeling so lonely
And just so alone

Something dropped from heaven once,
And rose again-
A drop of gold,
A silver lining,
A virgin-white feather.
That something is you, fresh from Grace and set in your direction.
You stay above earth,
Still there, but just barely, because
It's not a beautiful place;
Just crawling with ways to die,
Evil to hunt,
Reasons to fall.
It's exactly how they told you it would be.
Everywhere you look you see nothing but pain,
And you don't understand why they fight to save
Such an imperfect and ruined place.
The world doesn't matter yet,
But they do.
You want to protect them;
This place is changing you.
Something dropped to earth once,
And stayed awhile-
A drop of rain,
A drifting cloud,
A feather streaked with gray.
That something is you, no longer pure but better than ever.
You stay alongside them,
Not always there but ready any second, because
Heaven is not a beautiful place;
Just teeming with ways to lose yourself,

Being DifferentBeing Different3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I lay my egg besides me
As close as it can be
Protecting against harm
Keeping it warm
I' am different
You might not notice it
But still human
Well some parts of me is still human
Hiding and trying to be normal as possible
I tried as hardest that I could be
Yet being different is an outcast
A subject to behold
I was captured
For things to be checked
Experimentation hurts like hell

Her sweat sliding down her face
She was holding his hand
And took him into her embrace
With her arms around him
She cried while he looked into her eyes
He was dying but it was ok
The sun was too far in the skies
"I love you" she said
And he received it with a sigh
Now that he knows it
It is harder to die
Tears fell on his body
And turned into ash
She saw a fire being born
And a reflection in it like a flash
He rose with fire to the heaven
Her embrace became empty and she felt cold
Looking at him fly away she knew he won't leave her
"I love you",once upon a time she told

Without warning, Sherlock leaped to his feet. Suddenly irritated by John's silence. Stepping on the coffee table to get to the couch, Sherlock deliberately didn't look at the plastic face that seemed to be accusing him of not caring about people. Sherlock let himself fall on the couch and rolled over on his side, his back turned to the room. But mainly turned to John.
Sherlock couldn't remember why he had kept the dummies, but he'd had both of them stuffed in his bedroom closet. He'd put John's dummy in John's chair, telling himself he'd simply done that to have something to bounce ideas off. And honestly, the dummies input was about as useful as John's input ha
Still WaitingA kiss.Still Waiting4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
More importantly, your kiss.
A single moment suspended in the air, grace that would end the heavens.
Heart rates colliding in an explosion of adrenaline and my God, your smile.
If there were anything more elegant in this hollow world than a simple smile then shoot me,
Because there would be nothing left after seeing it.
If I could capture every one of your amazing smiles,
How could a frozen smile possibly replace that beautiful moment in which your smile spreads like an infection, each unique and more wonderful than the last?
How could I survive without your smile?
The answer is, I think, I wouldn't.
A kiss goodbye.
So I'll lie with a head full of dreams, mind swimming in reminiscence, waiting for that next

"I always wondered what life might have been like had she and I stayed together. How is she by the way?"
Those last two words replayed in Haytham Kenway's mind over and over again as he laid below the deck of the Aquila. The image of the beautiful Ziio trapped in her village and being burned alive began to haunt him. If only he had been there to stop Lee from setting flame to the Mohawk village; then she would still be alive and perhaps things would have turned out differently for him, Ziio, and Connor. Maybe, he would have even stayed with them, and taken up his position as a father. But that could never happen now.
Haytham closed his eyes and envisioned a young Connor playing in the town, while him and Ziio held hands and smiled as they watched their son.
"Damn you, Lee," The Templar muttered under his breath.
When Connor had told Haytham what had become of his love, for the slightest of seconds, a rush of loathing raged through him. He hat
