And soon it takes more than your name
To make me smile again
I know you don't love me
I can't deny it anymore
Have to stop playing these little games with myself
Stop saying you'll soon love me for sure
You're standing with that girl again
The one with lip gloss smudged all over her face
You move your hands to her waist
And keep them there.
To show her off without a care
Or a single thought
As to how I might feel
At least I'm not a floozy and what I feel is real
To be honest I smile to myself whenever you get hurt
Then think of ways to mend a broken heart
Some homebrewed remedy for a fresh start
You're taking up needed space in my heart
Sitting there, gathering dust
There should be nothing left for you,
No love or lust
Just pure obsession
And it's time to let go.
'Your Message Has Been Sent'"Your message has been sent."'Your Message Has Been Sent'9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The most final words in the English language.
Well okay, there's words like
But no string of words
Could measure up to
"Your message has been sent."
"They've seen it."
"They've read it."
"It cannot be undone."
"Nothing less desperate than hacking into their personal account and deleting that message as soon as possible could ever stop this person from reading your message from you to them"
A message, eh?
A very powerful thing.
"The pen is mightier than the sword."
Or in this case,
"The keyboard is mightier than the H-Bomb."
'Cuz who really uses swords anymore?
Or writes letters for that matter?
It's a communication.
Without it, we're solitary beings.
Whose sole purpose is to survive.
And that's all.
An empty existance
Is what befalls of us without communication.
Without a message.
They've seen it
They've read it
It cannot be undone.
"Your message has been sent"

Yugi, Atemu, and others DO NOT BELONG TO ME!!! They belong to the people who made the show and manga, got it? TY!
FROM ATEMU'S P.O.V.
Message: Re. An Inquirey.
Atemu? You're alive? You came back? You gave up your afterlife and pardice? ARE YOU CRAZY!?
The message on his little labtop screen was almost too sweet to bear. It hurt Atemu to look at it, simply because he had finally found him... He had finally found his hikari, his Yugi. And he'd just been called crazy. 'Lovely greeting, Yugi' he thought. Are you crazy. Ah, but it was a good question to ask. Was he crazy? Atemu chuckled a little, and hit the reply button. That's when he felt it.
The wave that crashed down on his hikari, the despair that now, too, enveloped him. He knew he would more acutely feel this if he were near Yugi, but this pain was so intense! Was this what his Yugi had been feeling all this time? He typed rapidly his reply:
You're in pain, Aibou. Where are you? Tell m

"Welcome back, Y-Millennium, you have 1 messages, 1 is new!"
18 year-old Yugi Moto, the Japanese top gamer blinked at the computer screen. A message from someone on the forum? That was unusual. He didn't get along very well with people on the Net, just like in real life. Depression ruled him, and it caused him to say very depressing things. Most people just told him to commit suicide, others said get over it, and some were kind enough to lend advice on how to get through this 'phase' of his. But it wasn't a phase. It was because...
Stop thinking about that, Yugi commanded himself. Thinking about that only leads to pain. So, without another thought, Yugi opened the link to his inbox, and checked over the title of the message along with the user name that sent it.
From: Y-Egyptian-King Subject: An Inquirey.
Y-Egyptian King, huh? Thought Yugi. Y-E-K was well-known for his strange opinions on things, and for his way of talking, he'd heard
heartbeat."how do you spell a heartbeat?"heartbeat.6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
"a heartbeat. the sound of a heartbeat."
all i hear is your steady breathing over the phone.
"i don't think heartbeats have a particular spelling to it."
"what do you mean?"
again, you take awhile to find the right words to say.
"for example, some people's heartbeat may sound like thump-thump. some may be tha-thump, or ba-thump. it depends on the person, if you know what i mean."
(i espiecially hate it when you assume i never understand you.)
"yeah, i think i do."
after a pause,
i ask, "so, what does my heartbeat spell like?"
"i don't know."
i am running, sprinting past a chain of dream-filled oak trees with hope dangling on every leaf.
what does it feel like?
it feels, i feel,
exhilarating, wasted, hopeful, letdown, heart-squeezed and trapped.
i gave up on every single dream to reach you. but right now,
i'm stuck in your labyrinth trying to find you and you know what's worse?
Run AwayRun Away9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
When you are scared and all the walls are closing in
You're feeling empty and your breath is growing thin
You're confused and it's becoming hard to see
Remember, always, you can run away to me.
You're afraid, that's okay
Everybody has to go there
You're afraid, so you say
It's not something you must, alone, bear
"In the morning I'll be better, wait and see"
But we both know that it won't be so easy
In the meantime you'll be crossing land and sea
On a journey that will take you back to me
When you have lost all reminiscence of control
You're terrified and you can't find your spine nor soul
Everbody's an encumberance you can't stand
There's nothing left, so run back to my open hands
When you are scared and all the walls are closing in
You feel dirty, need to wash away your sin
When all you think about is needing to break free
Remember, always, you can run away to me.
Things Went Wrong Part VIIIf anything Riku had decided that trying to sleep was a wasted effort.Things Went Wrong Part VII8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
By the time the sun had come up he was sure that once or twice hed dozed for ten minutes or so, but nothing more than that. He felt oddly awake no matter how hed strived for rest and in the end the sight of sunshine creeping through the blinds made him sit up with a groan, defeated.
Who needs sleep? The murmur passed his lips as he brushed the mess of silver away from his eyes with one hand, the other picking up his clock to check the time. Five thirty in the morning was enough news to make him cringe, far too early to walk to school and way too much free time in which he could only occupy himself with breakfast which he was too much of a hazard for and his thoughts.
Neither sounded very appealing as he set the clock back in its place and flopped back onto his bed. His gaze wandered the blank ceiling for a few moments as he thought about not thinking, which of course didnt
On The Use Of DeathA little bit of helpful advice to those young padawan writers out there. The following applies to the writers of ALL prose, no matter what genre you're in, so listen up.On The Use Of Death9 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Death in the use of storytelling is a very tricky thing, and I've seen plenty of writers and even filmmakers screw it up with the greatest of ease.
Now, please, don't get me wrong, death is a VERY powerful and emotionally motivating tool to use in prose, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not your story is cream or crap. By all means, it's there to be made use of, but you've got to remember that it's no arbitrary thing.
First of all, once you've made the decision to kill a characters, once it's been deemed by the events of your writing that an important person has to die, it has to have meaning behind it, or at least surrounding it. Either they've nobly sacrificed their lives for their loves and comrades, or they've become so depressed and withdrawn they finally turn to suicide for an escape, or their death h

Determined, fiery hands were at his throat, slender fingers ensnaring his neck. Roxas closed his eyes, wondering for a moment if this was right. But that single finger that shifted, stroked against the skin, caused a shiver; forced him to ignore. To forget.
He could feel the caress of warm breath on his cheek, and the way the taller boy pressed closer against his body his body. He was here now. Not a dream, not unreachable, but here.
Roxas sighed as soft lips brushed his, no longer caring about what should and shouldn't be. This was him, Roxas, not somebodys other. Where they fell short, Roxas didnt have to follow. Too many times he had stopped himself; drawn back before he got in the way. But this hurt too much felt too good to keep denying himself this one pleasure.

Prelude to RuinIt was a city in chaos.Prelude to Ruin8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
As he stood upon his rooftop precipice he could take in all of the pandemonium with idle survey, his eyes trained for the tell-tale signs of a black coat. Yet amongst those soldiers and civilians who struggled below he did not see much else beyond splashes of vibrant color, and a single figure in black but his ridiculous hat ruled him out before further investigation was needed.
In the center of the town square before the great cathedral, they had gathered as that man set alight a bonfire, a woman nearly swept up in the arms of flame. The blaze had licked at her heels as thick smoke clouded sickly in the air, not unlike the many houses in Paris that burned and smoldered in brilliant pyres intermittently along various streets.
The city burned, and as it did, ash and soot rose in the air, stifling as the sun would set in a reddened sky. Admittedly at the elevation it did tighten his chest, but he stubbornly remained in his vigil, watching the confusion and ruin wi

Sasori slammed his fist down on the buzzing alarm clock and groggily climbed out of bed. He brushed his teeth and ran a comb through his hair before throwing on some clothes. He went downstairs and grabbed a piece of toast to eat on the way to school. Grabbing his back pack and slinging it over his shoulder, he exited the house.

How is it you can cry for someone you don't even know?
You hear their story and feel this sadness in your heart and soul
But you can never imagine the pain their parents feel
To feel the sadness of knowing your child will die soon
You wonder "What can I do?"
Yet, know that you can't do enough
You feel it is unfair
Not only to the child, but to the world
But for most, the next day the thought of that child will be gone
As life surrounds them again and they are lost in their own world
Thoughts of the child in the hidden caverns of ones mind, lost and forgotten
But what of that child?
Just because you have forgotten them doesn't mean they will just be alright
Life isn't a happy fairy tale
One day they won't be here
It makes me cry
The thought of that small heart no longer beating on this planet
No longer sharing their love with others
Their life cut short by something they couldn't control
Something that isn't their fault....
