Cover my face in this gorgeous makeup
So that I may feel beautiful inside and out
She takes a tool with a beautiful color
And brushes it across her face
Just the slightest touch
And her face can be transformed
Into a beautiful work of art
Putting on this makeup
Has become a daily routine
And without it on
She feels as though
She is naked
It gives her a boost of self confidence
Without it on
She doesn't believe she is pretty
No matter what people say
She feels ugly without it
This makeup you see
Is a guardian unlike any other
It has become a mask
That hides her pain
And all of her insecurities
But in reality
Her natural beauty shines brighter
And all that truly matters
Is what's on the inside
Not the makeup of worldly beauty

"I'M GOING TO KILL YOU HARRY EDWARD STYLES!"
Louis cried out as another contraction gripped him, making him hunched over his little swollen belly in obvious pain as Harry winced because of Louie's hand crushing his with inconceivable strength.
The last 9 months had been a roller coaster ride for the band, especially for the both of them, since what happened over those months were coming to an end. Very quickly.
They had both been with the band performing in Manchester for a charity show when backstage and a week overdue, Louis's water had broken in the dressing room with Harry nearby.
They just stood there for a second until Louis had a bit of a panic attack, causing Harry to help him over to the closet and lock themselves inside with Louis lying on a pile of clothes in pain from his first contraction.
It had been at least an hour now since they had been in here and Louis were progressing fast in contractions and in pain.
Harry also wondered why no one had heard them

Chapter 1: An Abused Child...
I ran to my room and slammed the door, holding it shut. I was scared, I was shaking and I knew trouble was coming for me soon. I hadn't done anything wrong really. I had just gotten home 5 minutes too late, but with my "father" there was no arguing. I would be punished. I just felt like screaming. They weren't even my real parents, my real parents gave me up when I was little and instead I was adopted by my supposed to be parents from America. I hated it here, I had always hated it here. They had abused me for as long as I could remember and it only got worse as I got older, making me more stubborn, more unwilling to obey. They didn't deserve to see me break. My mother wasn't as bad as my father though. Yes, she would slap me from time to time and she would yell at me, but my father was a different matter. Often I had to go to school with a ripped lip, strained fingers or wrists and lie my way through all the bruises on my body during gym class. I isolated
March of the DamnedMarch of the Damned3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Marching on dead feet
over a field of gray
we lost the soul
we lost ourselves
in a time we'll never forget
we're an army of dead men.
Those who shoved us into this world
were lost long ago
as a wage of war.
Even the shallowest scratch
cuts to the bone
with a story we don't care to tell
some still scream
when in the heat of battle
they find another hollow
in the very flesh of their souls.
But most can no longer muster a tear
as we march
doing the dirty work of the devil.
An army of dead men.
We only wish we could care

Behind every line I with my shaking hands scramble down on the paper
Behind every tear that slowly roll down my red cheeks
Behind every slow step I take on this lonely wandering
Behind every heavy breath my lungs struggle to take
Behind this mask Im trying y hardest to wear
Is all the tears you will never see
All the screams you will never hear
All the problems that you cant solve

You before me, angelic, this vision.
Why do dark tears fall
from those brown eyes, so beautiful?
Why does your face shy from my eyes,
and shroud itself with the hair,
through which I run my fingers?
For what reason, to what cause,
do your limbs tremble in my absence,
and discover tensity in my presence?
Good God, use your lips,
before mine reach them,
as your silence gives consent.
Speak the mind which fascinates my ears,
Spill out the heart that grips tight to my soul.
Bare the soul that mine is forever meant for.
I wish to love you more than you could comprehend,
and purge every trace of affliction...
Bare the soul that mine is forever meant for.

"I would love a woman who is like a fairy in that she is innocent and kind, and she loves me for who I am." Arthur Kirkland
Your wings felt heavy as you tried to find a nice place to take a nap. You had worked hard all spring in order to make the flowers bloom nicely for summer and you were exhausted; especially since you worked through last night to get everything done on time! Pollinating the flowers was such a tiring task- even with the help of the hardworking bees- but you were happy that your job had gone well. All of the flowers looked wonderful now!
You were relieved when you finally found a house out here in the vast English countryside and you landed on one of the white windowsills nearest you. The faint heat of the rising sun felt wonderful on your tiny, worn out body, and you lied down on the warm white wood.
Before you could drift off into much-needed sleep, you smelled something wonderful coming from the side of the hou

You hold your arm standing before the door from the world meeting. Your [hair color] hair waved in the wind and your [eye color] eyes sparkled from joy. Long you were gone, almost forgotten till China found you lying on the ground. Your hands were burned, not that you felt anything of it but the scars bothered you. People always looked at them and thought you were weak, like China. But today was a new day a new day to impress all countries. You put on the black gloves to cover the burn marks and took a deep breath before you entered the building. All countries directly looked at you and China waved. You walked over to him and sat down on the chair next to him looking at the other countries. You looked at each one. There was a blond haired man with thick eyebrows, another blond haired guy with glasses, a brown haired guy with a goofy face and your eyes widened when you saw the tall beige/blond haired man.

It was late. You sat out on the balcony of your families lake house and watched the moon reflect off the near glass surface of the water. The night breeze was cool on your face, banishing away the humidity for a mere moment. Not that you minded the humidity. It was something you grew up with so you barely noticed it anymore. You noticed below you that lightning bugs were flitting through the rose bushes, lighting up their red-blue leaves with their green glow. It was a pretty sight but you didn't really feel in the mood for pretty. No, tonight you just wanted to jump of the second story balcony that you were sitting on. Life had thrown so much crap at you over the last week you just felt that it wanted you to die.

I have never quite forgiven myself
I have never felt like I deserve better
I have never felt so depressed
And I guess I have never felt love
I have never had a smaller hope
I have never had so much faith

And I guess I have never felt so lost
I have never ever been so thoughtful
I have never in my dreams grinded so wide
I have never lost my faith in you
But I guess, that's why it hurts

No words are needed,
The silence speaks for itself,
There is no need to form those words,
That you feel the need to say.
I can tell from you actions,
The small smile on your lips,
The twinkle in your eyes,
The skip in your step.
I can tell from the tears,
The broken heart,
The way you grip my hand tight,
The darkness in your soul.
I can tell from the knitted eyebrows,
You head cocked to the side,
Your mouth forming the question why,
The way your brain is working overtime.
I can tell by the shuffling in your step,
The clicking of your fingers,
The biting of your lip,
The feet that point inwards.
I can tell from your wide eyes,
Your limp form,
Your open mouth,
Your frozen eyes.
I can tell from the clenched fists,
The sharp movements,
The vibrating of your body,
The glare from your soul.
I can tell your mood,
From the way you move,
There is no need to speak,
I know exactly what you are going to say.
Sometimes the best way to say something,
Is to say nothing at all.
Nothing needs to be sai

When the plague started spreading throughout Republic City, Korra went to help people in the hospitals. She said it was her duty as the Avatar. I should have stopped her; I knew the disease was contagious. I should have kept her from going. We should have left when we found out about the disease. All the things we could have done, but didn't. It started with a few people, and it seemed like nothing, but soon it turned to hundreds, and then thousands. You couldn't walk along the streets without seeing someone deathly ill on the ground. There was nothing the doctors could do. They had to let the person suffer through the illness to death. And then one day, Korra didn't come home. I paced back and forth frantic, and the kids tried to comfort me while not showing their fear. Soon, we got a call from the hospital, and I thought it was Korra, saying she just had some other Avatar duties to attend to, but she would be home soon. Instead, it was a doctor saying Korra was bedridden i

Such envy construed from a dead, lifeless thing!
One would think I had taken too much of wine
Yet here I still lie, overcome with this dream
When the sensuous dawn and the morning are mine
I curse the sweet cloth that extends his form
So dark, yet inviting in its fibers of night
If the heart is the eyes, then his heart beats on
For his hand is my scepter and his being my sight
Such violence! Such envy! Are mortals so daft?
If a rose stabs itself on the thorns of deceit
I scream out my words, but you only will laugh
At the warring so bloody, yet blindingly sweet
If I lay me down tightly and rightly to sleep
Then dear Death will come tramping, as soon is his due
Announce my cold state, for the flesh will not reap
I am lying in arms so much sweeter than you
