Tears of the PastRain falls down on the treesTears of the Past5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Branches heavy with tears of the past
And the wind speaks to me
At my window
Controlling me - Isolation
Hopelessness - Losing Interest
Meditate on just one thing
Innocence...In a sense
I am guilty - I surrender
You can't escape from this
If you don't stop
Running away from
Blue-gray streaks are coming down
Perfect skies shine in the distance
Barriers that blur my sight
Keep me in this dark existence
You can't escape from this
If you don't stop
Running away from
Life can be bliss
If you let it be.
Take me away from this,
And teach me serenity.
Surrender and be free,
Free, let me be free! Let me go!
Drawing the shades -
We both know you can't let me go
Where am I?
Is this real?
All that I am
All things material
All are whole,
Perfect, and beautiful
As this wave of clarity sweeps over me
We all have the power to choose,
The power to be!
Spider SilkA summer's eveSpider Silk3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Lying in the cool grass
Of days gone by
And I could get lost
In your blue skies of spider silk
I wake in the half-sweet exhaust
Of some smoker's trail,
The last vestiges of one
Who was so tangibly here...
Sitting with you
under an eternally starry sky
These memories bathed
In perpetual light...
I'm seeing your eyes in everyone else,
And these long-lost memories begin...
It's not them I want; it's you that I crave,
And your waves come crashing again.
Your imprints are everywhere
In everything I see,
Dreaming of a time
When again we would be
Into the familiar abyss,
And the moments that never happened
Are the ones that I miss.

fuck your little smile
and your teasing little eyes
fuck your tender touches
and fuck your little lies
fuck everything about you
everything that drew me in
the reason why im drowning
the reason i cant swim
you said you\'d fucking be there
but you werent when i needed you most
fuck your petty excuses
to me youre just a ghost
a spirit that wont leave me
or give me fucking peace
all i want is your arms around me
and for that im losing sleep
you just keep denying me
of the love i know is mine
im desperate cuz i need you
where do i draw the line?
i love you but i hate you
and for that i say fuck this
refusing me everything ive given
ignoring my only wish...

Home alone again. Kiku was turning into the third wheel of the Axis Powers. He had laid down on the couch in the living room, soft Japanese music playing from a small CD player with speakers. Relaxing... He had almost gotten to the point of falling asleep when the door slammed open. " KIKUUU! " The Asian snapped up into a sitting position, seeing Italy burst through the front door. In his hands were white shopping bags with little yellow flowers all up and down the sides. Germany carried in a bigger box, and the picture on the front of it showed a white cradle.
" We found so many cute thiiings! Just wait til you see! Doitsu, can you start dinner please? I'll be there in a second! " Germany stepped in behind him, moving to shut the door with his boot gently. He set the box down in the living room and politely nodded to Japan. He then ventured off into the home to make their dinner. Kiku could of sworn that was a person across the street watching... But he didn't bring it up.

Beeps all around him. All rhythmic, along with a sharp hissing noise every moment or two. A voice, far away and fuzzy, spoke. Wasn't anyone he recognized. " I think he's coming around. " Sudden warmth on his hand, and it was pressed to something equally warm. And wet. " Doitsu? Doitsu? " Italy... he knew that beautiful voice anywhere. His sense of taste was the first to slowly come back to him. A metallic taste... blood. His mind played back the sight of his mouth hacking up blood onto the smaller country and his chest ached. He tried to cough again from this ache, but this only brought a flash of pain through his rib cage. Italy grabbed his hand tight as Germany let out a whimper. " Don't move, doitsu. He broke all your ribs and some vertebra... but the doctor said you're gonna live. " And his lips pressed on his palm before he started to cry again.
Blue eyes fluttered open and tried to focus. It went from blurry lights, a shadow of someone hovering over him. Then to fuzzy, more shape

Nothing was getting better. Germany tried to put all of his mental power into keeping Italy safe, and it was wearing him out quickly. Dark circles under his eyes and enough coffee in him to keep Rip Van Winkle awake, he raced to save their family. Japan was the one fetching things for Italy and making sure he was happy while the father was out securing borders. Surely after the baby was born... it would be their weakest moment. But Feli was fed up with Germany being gone, really. He loved that Japan was watching over him so much, even the baby recognized his soft voice. But he wanted Doitsu.
Late at night Germany housed himself in his office, knocking around ideas and tactics. In the middle of air bombing the Russian capital, there was a knock at his door. He looked up to see an exhausted Italy rubbing his eyes with the heel of his left hand. Right hand curled under his tummy. " Doitsu... I cant g

Ooh, that must've hurt Tasha thought as the agent crashed to the ground in shock, a stream of blood springing from his nose.

She turned and walked towards where her things hung on a hanger. The door closest to her opened and Agent Hill strode up to her.

"Good morning," Roy murmured as he nuzzled his nose between Ed's head and neck, causing the younger to tilt his head back.

Germany had rolled a pamphlet tight in his hands, squeezing it to form creases. He had fought tears these past ten minutes, sitting down across from the doors Italy and his baby were supposed to emerge from. Sickness rotted his stomach, thinking of his baby... his little angel bleeding. They had to save her. They had to keep her alive, she was just a couple minutes old. An innocent baby did not deserve this. Prussia had a hand on his brother's knee, trying to comfort him. The others sat in silence, watching each other and the doors. They had all seen it... blood bubbling from the baby's mouth like regurgitated milk. Ludwig went to unroll the pamphlet and begin tearing it up into small pieces when the door opened.
The doctor stood with the nurse that had held the baby in the room. He bowed his head in respect to the rest of them as Ludwig stood. Teeth clenched tight, his hands balled into fists. " What the hell have you done to my baby? " The nurse's eyes widened, and she sort of dodged

" I want this burned down. All of it. I don't want to see the pink paint when you're done with it. " Germany tossed the red plastic tub he had against the house, watching the light yellow liquid flood out as it landed on it's side. Behind him, two men held the screaming Feliks by his broken arms. " YOU CANT! PLEASE, DON'T! THAT'S MY HOUSE! " But it felt horrible to struggle. Every bone in his body could have been broken, including the skull from the tell tale gaping wound in the forehead. Flies had started to make their nurseries there, despite the constant fanning from the commanders. Doitsu stripped out of his jacket and set it at his feet, whipping off his gloves that were possibly tainted with gasoline. " On my mark. I want the three others on the other walls to strike and throw also. " Ducking a hand into his pocket he pulled out red headed matches.

The cold stethoscope graced over Italy's bare chest. Over his heart. Against his ribs. Everything was beating, expanding just fine. The English doctor leaned back up, taking the black rubber ends out of his ears. " Heat exhaustion, you say? " Germany nodded once, arms folded and trying not to make eye contact with the doc. Japan was the one to speak, both hands clasped in front of himself. " Yes. He has also been vomiting in the morning, acting fine the rest of the day until today. "
The Englishman raised a hand and scratched on his cheek. " I'd agree to overheating if it wasn't for the vomiting prior. How long did you say? " Germany muttered his answer. " Two months. But right afterward he'd stuff his face again. " Italy cut into the conversation, his fingers grasping the stethoscope. " I want pasta... " Doctor gently pried his instrument from wandering hands. " I want to run some blood tests. Can you two keep him calm and still? " Japan looked to Doitsu, knowing he was really the one

Japan hummed softly, dusting off the knick-knacks around the Axis Power's home. With Germany and Italy out in the garden, it was rather quiet on the inside. In his trusty maid outfit, he could tackle any form of dirt. Rubbing feathers lightly over small figurines of boats, cars, he soon arrived in Italy's room. Ugh, smelled like something died in here. He sighed softly at the sight of clothes and toys thrown everywhere. Was like picking up after a ten year old. He set his feather duster on the bed, and bent over to pick up the toys first. Teddy bear, slinky, toy guns, all were thrown into his large white leather trunk and shut.
Then he moved onto the clothes. His blue sailor suit shirt was taken up and shaken before being tossed into the hamper. Undershirt was treated the same way, though underwear was picked up by the end of the feather duster. And of course, not looked at directly. Picking up his pants, he flicked them hard, and the handkerchief from the pocket flew and landed near t

Already awake and making coffee, Doitsu hadn't bothered to awaken Italy just yet. His alone time, was his happy time. Soaking the drink in sugar and creamer, he sat back down with the newspaper. Perfect morning, watching the sun climb up over the horizon in the windows. He even had enough time possibly to make breakfast for his husband. A slurp on his coffee and he flicked the print. What was going on today? Halfway through a section on global warming and a sip, there was a shocked screech from the hallway followed by hollered Japanese. This screech ignited a chorus of screams also, along with sudden loud sobbing. Coffee jet from his lips all over his tank top and boxers, even some on his newspaper.
His babies were the first things on his mind. Fire? Flood? Someone fell out of bed? His coffee cup kissed the floor only to be shattered, his paper forgotten. Italy met up with him in the hall, his hair jumbled and eyes wide. He muttered something about their babies, and went to their room.

Japan couldn't wipe the sweat off his brow. Both hands held brown paper bags filled to the brim with delicious foods that were ready to be prepared for dinner. Had to hurry home... this heat was killing him. But a few doors down he saw their driveway, just giving him more energy to scoot himself faster on the pavement. Shoes padded quickly to the front door and set a bag down. Getting the key, he unlocked the door... to find two children on the floor. They sat upon a thick blanket, looking up from their toy horses to see the Asian man grow pale. One had longer hair and brown eyes, the others hair chopped with blue eyes shining from beneath. Instantly the blue-eyed one screeched. " MAMA! DADDY! " And he went to hide under the coffee table.
Was he, seeing double? Two? He remembered that Germany and Italy were going to get one small baby, not two toddlers. Italy came from the kitchen and threw up his arms. " NIHON! Meet your new godchildren! " Japan glanced back to the little ones, and lo

Russia hadn't returned. All the Allies sat around the conference table, solemn and silent. They looked at each other from time to time, guilt and reluctance etched in their eyes. All were prepared for war, in uniforms that were ready to be bloodied and ruined. Possibly even blown holes in. Guns strapped to their chests and explosives in their pockets. England and France kept looking at each other, the same thought running through their minds. What if someone attacked while their babies were still in the infant stage? Tiny America and tiny Canada all cuddled up in a corner screaming... Their hearts would be broken. But by then England would glare and look away, leaving France with the sadness. Soon America stood, taking the green army print helmet from the table and placing it on his head. " I don't think Russia is returning... We need to start on our own.

" Doitsu, doitsu! Look! " Italy had laid out all the baby clothes in the living room. Again. This was the third time this week. Nesting could be such a pain, especially with Feli's personality. Doitsu looked over from the paint slabs in his hands to see the Italian rest the frilly white dress on his big belly. The Italian could feel her reaction to the change of light, bumping about as if trying to find a light switch. Halfway through seven months, they were nearing the closing point of their preparation. Which meant, painting the baby's room. Germany chuckled softly, setting down his paints for now. " Perfect fit. "
Feliciano gently took the dress off her and set it on a little hanger. No way it was going to be folded up and wrinkled. It was his favorite.
