Tears of the PastRain falls down on the treesTears of the Past4 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!

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.

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

"Good morning," Roy murmured as he nuzzled his nose between Ed's head and neck, causing the younger to tilt his head back.
"Morning," Ed whispered back, his hands tightening a little on Roy's arm. He then let go of the arm and turned in Roy's embrace.

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.

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

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

Zollver placed the yellow block atop the pink one with ferocious focus, moving the hand back slowly. The twins paused, letting the tower settle... before flailing and squealing! Oh this was so much intense fun! Sicily picked up a blue block and balanced it on the yellow one as Italy stepped into their room, looking over his shoulder. Mama's face was pinched in worry, looking back to Japan who walked in after him. " Nihon, are you sure this is a good idea...? " Kiku nodded, stepping over to the twins and sitting down on his legs.

This game that they were playing was relatively simple, yet hard at the same time.

Zollver didn't awaken either from their sudden snatching, wrapped around his bunny. The room they were in was warm and dark, only a single window looking over over the British landscape.

The drive on the way to the hospital was an insane one. Hungary and Austria went to Italy's sides as Germany strode over to take care of the Russian slime on his carpet. But before that gun had a clear shot, Ivan used the gun on the floor in order to blow a bloody hole in Prussia's foot. And this lead to him running out the door, threatening to shoot anyone who followed. Russia jumped into a waiting black car, and the vehicle's driver stepped on it. He got away...
Italy squirmed on the floor somewhat, panting. Hungary leaned him up and gave him her body to lean on, hands on his shoulders. Austria grabbed the keys in his pocket and muttered. " I will drive.
