Sitting here on the couch, I should feel relieved. I finished my day's work--now I am free to do whatever I want. But instead...I just want to go to bed and escape from it all. That's what I do in my free time now--sleep.
I'll be honest...it's because...lately, sleeping is the closest I can get to feeling happy.
I've been dealing with...something...I'm not even sure what...this thick, black cloud that I can't seem to shake. This may sound extreme, but honestly...I feel like my soul is being torn apart from the inside out. I find no pleasure in life anymore. Maybe it's a jaded way of viewing things, but for me all the joy in my life drained away what seems like a long time ago. I feel like I have nothing to live for...I've never dealt with sorrow this thick, this intense before. I feel like it's suffocating me...how much longer can this go on?
I cry myself to sleep every night. Like I said, sleep seems the only way to escape the pain.
The worst part is that I'm afraid to tell anyone, ev

She realized that he still wore the same black pants and worn-out white tank top that seemed to have more rips and tears in it than from what she remembered. Korra then noticed that Mako now wore a sleeveless, button-up, Chinese themed top that she remembered seeing in the Fire Nation over his tank top.
While watching Mako, Korra realized, that just like Bolin, his muscles grew too, along with his height. His body was still slim and tall, but his new muscles were still visible. She remembered how her crush on the man came to be when she first met him. Mako still had his cool, yet calm, expression on his face that she thought was so attractive, now she just thinks it's a normal bored expression; there was nothing attractive about it to her now.
While Mako was putting on his new black coat, which reached all the way down to his calves, he

It had been months since Loki launched an attack on Midgard in an effort to rule it. Slowly, the warring realms got the message that Asgard was still there, doing its duty to the universe and protecting it from itself. But what surprised the realms the most was the ability of the Midgardians to defend themselves with only the help of one god.
"That is impossible. One god and a gaggle of giggling Midgardians against a Chitauri army." A fire giant, with war blackened skin, with a crown of smouldering embers said to his war council. Surtr was the ruler and king of Muspelheim.
"The Chitauri really have dropped the dragon egg for the Midgardians to pull out a victory." Another man, his skin red with hair of flames, said to Surtr's left.
"You give the Midgardians too much credit. They were led by Thor, father." A woman the size of a toddler compared to the size of the other members at the table, said to Surtr's right.
"And Loki, well, isn't much of a fighter." She added, crossing her arms ov
rintori fic It had to be, what, 2AM? He should have gone to bed hours ago. Every time he’d close his eyes, the same thoughts ran through his mind over and over again. The rude remarks, the snide comments, and the teasing whispers of how he wasn’t good enough. He’s heard the same things said to him by the same people every single day, and he was starting to believe them himself. It’s gotten to the point where he’s skipped practice more than once just to get away from them. Nitori hadn’t told anyone about the bullying; he didn’t think anyone would listen, let alone care. Instead, he waited until his roommate had drifted off, headphones plugged in and all, and he cried. He cried until there were barely any tears left in his system, and then he cried some more. Rin was a pretty heavy sleeper and probably wouldn’t wake up until it was time for classes in the morning, giving the silver haired boy some time to himself.

That word was written all over her face as she continued to poke at her stomach.
Her legs were hanging over the couch arm and a pile of pillows were supporting her back. She kept looking down at her exposed stomach and poking it with her finger. Her bottom lip was pushed out and her eyebrows were frowning.
She didn't like the comment that her doctor told her earlier that day, it's been gnawing at her ever since it escaped her doctor's lips.
She then felt the pillow that were supporting her be pushed out from under her back. She fell back with a small cry passing her lips and her head crashing down on his lap.
"Not funny Mako." She said angrily as she stared up at her smirking husband.
"I thought it was funny." He said as his smirk grew. He then placed his warm hand on her exposed stomach. "Are you still worrying about what the doctor said?"
"Yes, I mean, it's only been three months. How can I be showing already? Also, I'm getting closer to the fourth month mark, so

"Ok, Wheatley," Chell said, unrolling the map, "What do you want to see first?"
Wheatley thought for a moment. He had never really seen most of these animals. He looked over her shoulder at the map and looked for a word that looked interesting.
"Ummmmmm, how 'bout the concession stand....that sounds interesting!"
Chell laughed, "That's not an animal, you goofball! Ok, how about the monkeys?"
"Sure." Wheatley muttered, feeling embarassed that he knew so little about these things.
They made their way to the monkeys cage where the monkeys swung from tree to tree without a care.
"Sooooooo, are they a type of breeded acrobat?" Wheatley asked.
Chell and several other people burst out laughing, causing Wheatley to blush.
"What!? I mean, it isn't unreasonable!"

Rin could almost see the smile on Nitori's face as he closed his eyes and hoped to God it did not storm.
It was raining lightly, before getting harsher and soon it was pouring.
Rin glared at the window. Damn, him and Nitori really needed to get curtains on that fucking thing. Sighing and turning flipping over so he did not have to see what was going on outside, he tried to relax himself by looking at the wall.
And that's when he saw it.

The wifeShe rises early, 6amThe wife3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Whilst you still slumber, wallow in your dreams
She makes the tea
She gives you breakfast in bed,
Her hair already piled elegantly upon her head
She washes last night's dishes
And remembers to feed the cat
She prods the children wide awake
And gives you a gentle shake.
Downstairs, the children are at the table
Tidy hair, polished shoes.
A plate of food in front of you
Bowls of porridge for the children
You cover her delicate ears when the news plays,
She's a fickle thing your wife
A kiss of the cheek, your brief case in hand, you go.
She marches the children off to school
Singing on the way
Then off she goes to the shops, the grocerers, the paper shop
She chooses a leg of lamb, in the butchers
Staring into the dead animal's eyes, unfazed
Homeward bound now, arms laden with an army of bags
She unpacks the shopping, and begins the cleaning
Of course, that, is what she does best
She polishes the floor
Dusts every surface in sight
The stairs are given a good old brush

Skye awoke for the second time that night. Even with his eyes now open, it didn't help because it was too dark to see. He felt the ropes around his body that bound him, but he was still too dazed from the drug to panic. His droopy head turned from side to side as he tried to take in his surroundings. Judging by the darkness and the sound of the waves, Skye could tell that he was indoors and on the water. But most importantly, he was alone.
With his legs the only part of his body that was free, Skye was able to rise to his feet. The young man's eyes finally adjusted and was surprised to see that everything in the room was modern. Even though the ship he had seen approaching them wasn't a pirate ship, it still shocked him that the contents inside were of normal boat-material as well.
As he stumbled around on his shaking legs, he crashed into one of the walls and discovered the door. His arms struggled with the ropes, but he could not break free. He dropped to his knees and studied the do

Next thing to ponder, what did Chell like to eat for breakfast? She had fed him lots of things, cereal, toast, stuff like that, but she rarely ate breakfast herself.
He walked into the kitchen and saw the cupboard that she kept most of those cereal boxes. He grabbed and pulled, but it wouldn't open. Even with both his hands, it stayed stubbornly shut. It didn't pass his mind that Chell might have locked it to keep him out of the food.
After a few more tugs, he put his feet on the side of the counter and pulled. That did the trick, except the whole cupboard came loose from the wall, and it and Wheatley crashed to the ground.
It took about five seconds for Chell to be downstairs. She quickly pulled the cupboard off him.

Skye opened his eyes from his dreamless sleep, only to see more darkness.
He sat up and hit the leaves above him with his head. His eyes began to adjust to the darkness and was able to realize where he was.
"What is it, Cyan?" Skye called out. His partner was not beside him.
As Skye crawled out of the miniature fort, he noticed how he wasn't drowsy. He must have just have fallen asleep for an hour or so before being woken up.
As he walked across the sand he called again for the merman. His eyes still hadn't adjusted to the absolute darkness. Since they were on a deserted island, the only light they had was from the moon and the stars. Skye quickly gave up and stumbled back to the fort after remembering he had packed a flash light. He managed to find his backpack and found the flash light inside, sealed up in a plastic bag. As he unzipped it, he prayed that the water had not gotten in. Fortunately, the light flickered on and he continued his search for Cyan.

That shelters me from the shards of glass that fall from the sky,
The hate, the depression and the lies,
Even within the mist, all I could see is you.
Even within the clouds, all I need is you,
During my darkest days,
You lifted me to the skies,
You took me away,
To places that I thought never existed.
Even though you weren't perfect,
Even though you let in rain every now and again,
I still held you tight,
I did my best to show you the light.
You sheltered my soul from the loneliness of this world,
You became my wings, my reason for living.
