Love was my mistakeWhat hurts me the most,Love was my mistake3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is the fact that I care.
I care so much,
My heart breaks.
The pain in my chest will never go away,
Never, until my dying day.
My dearest love, how could you go?
Leaving me here to die alone.
I loved you so,
Yet it wasn't enough.
If you told me so,
I could change.
I lived off of lies,
The lies that I once believed.
I guess that it is no use anymore,
I have figured out my mistakes.
Who was once my true love,
I shall never forgive you,
Not after what you have done.
Yet life must go on,
With you here or not.
I won't let it kill me,
I know what it's worth.
The lies you fed me,
Day after day.
Yet you still say,
I'm the one to blame?
I'd rather think not,
As I know the truth.
I knew I was wrong,
For ever loving you.

sanctuary for H.I.M
this glossy terrain
makes life go dim
Lucifer sits chained on his throne
this is his eternal punishment
The souls of the traitors
frolic around in peril
creating havoc that's unstable
You'll pay the price for your betrayal
in the hands of Lucifer himself
A traitor's blood is full of mischief
until it's cleansed of impurities
With actions so deluded
a little bit of ice injected in your soul
should have you tormented
till you can't destroy no more

Wheatley stood up, gripping his knife tightly in one bloody hand. He stared down at the body of the android that dared enrage him, dared mention .that place. He wiped the blood from the knife onto his pants and turned around, noticing a disturbance in the shadowy room. He adjusted his grip on Caroline and walked forward.
"Who's there?" He called into the darkness.
"Oh, dear. Have I been caught? I suppose I have." A voice came from the shadows, thickly accented Russian.
"Show yourself!" Wheatley snarled.
There was a moment of quiet laughter. Wheatley gripped Caroline even tighter, tensing for attack.
A female form emerged from the darkness. The young woman had a slight smile on her lips, hand on hip, wearing a much too short dress much like GLaDOS wore. However, instead of it being grey, this one's dress was pure black, except for on her sleeves and the short shorts under it. Those, as well as the hemline, were a deepest purple.
"Who are you?" Wheatley didn't relax.

"Can you give me one of them, please?" Sirus says after shaking his head. I pick up one of my hairs from the ground and hand it over to him. He takes the two ends of the hair and pulls them, noticing that my hair isn't as weak as he believes them to be.
I smirk at him in amusement. "I take it, you didn't know that Asmodei hair does not tear easily?"
He looks back at me. "No, I didn't . . . but why? I mean"
"Our hair is a symbol of our status . . ." I interrupt him, I already know what his question is, there's really no need for me to hear the whole thing. "My hair represents the void between the countless stars . . . the void that Asmotitis left behind," I explain. "Our hair is very strong . . .

Little butterfly; your tiny wings are so colourful.
They represent, dreams and hopes for the future.
But sadly, those dreams and hopes are easily crushed.
As easily as you are, little one...
Those dreams and hopes for the future were all crushed,

I heard the crunch of all the parts of your body, breaking.

I start on making the fire when I hear a strange cry. I look out to the mouth and see something big fly just over the cave and to the lake. It soars away before I get a good look at it, all I know is that that thing is rather big. It looks like my old pet, my tosp from back on the ship.
I sigh quietly . . . I miss Eka . . .
Shrugging it off, I go back to the campfire and spark a flame within minutes. For the past few weeks we have gotten used to our new lifestyle and gathered and made things that can help us out here. I made a habit out of gathering wood worth two to three nights, for tonight we're fine. Tomorrow I just might have to go out and get some more.
I throw two sticks in before I hear the alarm system Sirus made go off. I pick up my gun from the pouch I made since I'm not longer going to wear my suit with the custom belt to strap to my waist and point it to

A language that everyone speaks.
But one that we are not able to hear.
A place where emotions and abandonment meet.
Of which we are forced to confront our buried fears.
There are no more lessons that the agents of society can teach.
An infinite amount of words expressed through a solitary tear.
People dish out advice but never practise what they preach.
A language with the same traits as a hopeful prayer.
A society where people judge others, as they sit back in their self proclaimed seats.
They can no longer understand you and they aware of the darkness that draws near.
Many lives led but we are all accompanied by the same drumbeat
Maybe you don't want to be heard but people will forcefully lend an ear.

Why I'm not an Atheist/ Rejecting Labels“If you’re not a Christian, then what are you?”Why I'm not an Atheist/ Rejecting Labels3 months ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
If I ever come out of the closet about no longer being a Christian, I’m sure that I’ll be confronted with this question. For a very long time, I wasn’t sure about how I should identify myself, or more specifically, which “title” I should use.
But here’s the catch: I didn’t convert to another religion, nor am I religious now. I don’t have any beliefs in any creative deities or anything supernatural/metaphysical at all. Be it miracles, fate, fanciful or mythological creatures, spirit photography... I have no beliefs in any of it. Still, there’s just one problem that I see with people, or most likely the way that people think. Some people aren’t comfortable with such a long winded answer, and so they’d most likely lump together into the category of being “Atheist.”
One time I had a rather unpleasant conversation with a preacher about the Christian

Wings Of Darkness
Bind me within your embrace
Bestow me with your grace
I seek your help to obtain the unseen
I need you to blind me from the light
Never let me see my weakness again
Blanket my fears so I won't cry
Cease the false hope from shining in vain
Ward away the lies that hide behind my eyes
Morph this disaster into a calm night
Burn the dying sun out
Darken the nightmarish sky
Let the ominous clouds melt
Lock away this cursed gift of sight
I no longer desire it
Shut out the world from you and I
I yearn for the abyss
Rip away my self-hatred
Bring back my innocence
Obliterate the life I created
And color this reality obsidian
Let the void consume
Paint my essence black
Devour what was once called truth
My faith is in your hands
I profess it all unto you
I am under your command

Living a LieI say farewell to her as I walk out the door. Not knowing that I would ever see her again, not knowing I should have stayed. As I walk down the sidewalk towards my car a light appears in the sky, a wave of fire sweeping over the horizon. Everything in the explosions path being thrown in front of it and disappearing into the fiery inferno.

"Wait up, Lance!"
The tall, dark figure ahead turned around and sighed. "I swear, if you slow me down any more I'll leave you behind."
"It's not my fault you walk so fast," the younger boy grumbled as he trudged up the scruffy hill behind his brother.
The moon was full and bright overhead and cast black shadows behind the short tufts of grass able to grow out of the parched soil. The entire sky stretched out over Casey's head like a dark blanket that went on forever and ever, that he would eventually suffocate under. He lowered his head and pushed his tired muscles up the hillside.
"You need to learn to be faster," Lance scolded. "We'll never make it if you're always lagging behind."
Casey rolled his eyes. Lance was so bossy. He always thought he knew best just because he was three years older. Maybe when Casey turned twenty, Lance would finally listen to him. Although, he didn't know if he wanted to get that old. He'd rather die than reach the age of viability.

Hope, no more
But a weak feeling
For the freedom
Never to be found
Never to be fully lived

For hope and feelings
Never to be had
Never to be felt
Never to be lived
On soft wings of doom

Hide and Seek.My life is a constant game of hide and seek.Hide and Seek.6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I hide from the world because I am afraid,
because I've been hurt so many times before.
Because I love to hide in the shadows,
where I am safe from sorrow and pain.
I hide from the world because no one notices,
when I'm gone, no one cares.
I hide from myself because I love what I've become,
but no one else does, no one cares.
I hide from the world because as I play,
no one else does, no one cares.
I play alone, in the shadows, waiting,
for someone to find me.
They have no desire to look...to seek,
they leave me wounded and hidden, alone.
When they decide to love me for what I am,
I believe they will come looking for me.
So I wait, hidden, for someone to find me,
someone to rescue me from my fate.
Someone to love me, and care for me,
someone who will never let me go,
someone who will never give up, and say
"come out, come out, where ever you are."
Because they will quit until they find me,
Until they love me, and care for me.
And ask me if I
