Red's WolfEvery one knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood right. How a little girl went into the forest to visit her sick grandmother and a wolf came dressed in the little girls grandmothers night gown. The wolf was suspected to have already eaten the grandmother and was now planning to eat the girl when a brave woodcutter came and cut open the wolfs stomach and filled it with rocks then dumped the wolfs lifeless corpse into a lake. Well it was only after that when the truth began to revile itself. The grandmother was never eaten and the wolf was not the villain. The grandmother was. She happened to be a mentally ill, without the girls knowledge, aRed's Wolf3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
IcarusA glistening dark feather found its way to rest on my feet.Icarus3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sitting in the rose garden, I had made my retreat.
The surrounding crimson petals shunned the black.
I believe it was from an angel, looking back.
His back was turned, his skin all bare
And the spawn of the roses were all up in his hair
And a swarm of feathers swirled around him in the air.
He was bent by a rose with a complexion so fair.
And then out of his silvery eyes sprung a tear
And he fell to the ground with an expression of fear.
His arms wound around him, those slim snowy poles.
He held on tight as worry struck my soul.
His back arched high like a disease ridden

As the chaos in Eastcastle had Lucian frantically trying to find Nire, he could tell that Azael was growing as a threat the longer he was away. Pushing his way through the halls as residents ran to find safer areas, he suddenly felt a presence deep within himself. Nire… he thought as the living darkness of the depths surrounded her small frame.
Suddenly aware of what had happened, Lucian darted towards a shadow as it lengthened along the wall. The sun was nearing the horizon and he would soon have the advantage of darkness.
A large portion of the Southern army forced its way through the gates and rampaged through the city. In
No longer with my DaughterHer smile is what I lived to see. Her eyes filled with love,love for me. I loved to watch her run freely in the yard. Even though she is not really mine,I love her as if she was. She looks like me,so the secret is hidden better. Her eyes are blue like mine,her hair midnight black.

"Daddy! Look!" she yells as she attempts a flip. She falls onto her arm,scratching it. Tears fill her blue eyes and she runs to me. "Papa! Papa!"
I pick her up and place her on my lap,stroking her black hair. She still cries,but now she has a small smile. I lift her arm to my lips and kiss the small cut. She hugs me then

The compliments that they receive?
Here's a tale they will enjoy
It starts with a girl and boy
The first date, they both are shy
They look each other in the eye
After they eat, they both walk
Staring at the ground, they talk
She likes him, and he likes her
Satisfied is what they were
So let's skip ahead a bit
To the part where they commit
The three strong words, you know the ones
Each little word can weigh tons
He gets them out, "I love you"
And he did, this part is true
A tear swells up in her eye
She hesitates to reply
She lets out a mighty sigh
And stops him, and asks him "why"

I can see you through the haze
Of tears filling my eyes.
I can see you moving.
And my heart breaks
Just a little bit more
When I realize you're moving
Away from me.
I could stare for hours
Just watching you sleep.
While my aching eyes
You're so beautiful,
And you'll never know
How hard it is to let you go.
Yet you were never mine,
It's all in my head.
I wonder what you're dreaming
As you lie in that bed.
I was insane to think
That you'd ever be mine,
You're too good for me,
I saw that with time.
In your peaceful dreams
A beautiful girl you see.
And that beautiful girl
Will never be me.

Another stupid poem
That my HEART bleeds from.
More dumb promises
More hollow lies
Not this time.
This time it's different
I swear that it's true
Only from my ashen life
Could such a lovely thing bloom.
This beautiful thing
For my heart does cry
This incredible creature
With the soft green eyes.
This searing emotion
I keep deep inside
I can hide it no longer
I count slowly and sigh...
I dont know if you care
or even pick up the phone
But youre still the nicest person
That I ever have known.
This incredible thing
With lips like ocean shores
and with a smile that kills
Finally Found My Second WingI stood so long upon the ground,Finally Found My Second Wing8 years ago in Ballad More Like This
Staring longingly at the stars,
But no more dreams, my wings are found,
I've found a way to heal my scars,
For so long I've been in hell,
But now I have my wings,
You've released me from this painful spell,
And now I know just what love brings.
You've always been there to guide my way,
Watching quietly from above,
Now you've shown me the light of day,
Showing me a thing called love.
No longer are the stars so far from me,
For now, If I try i can go,
But there's nowhere else I'd rather be,
For compared to you, the stars don't glow.
So extend to me your slender arm,
Give to me your sweet soft ha

Seeing the smile upon your face,

Angel of mine, I hope that you'll stay,
Stay with me now, forever this way.
You are my soul mate, my lover, my friend,

The bad outweigh the good
Playing evil little tricks
Sometimes i sit & wounder
If hes coming back to me
But in my heart i know that
It wasnt meant to be
He didnt even say goodbye
Or give me one last kiss
He just fucking left me
Fuck i dont deserve all this!
You stupid fucking asshole
What was going through your head
Werent you fucking thinking
of what we both just said
No not 15 seconds later
You loaded up your gun
You said dont worrybaby
Lets go have some fun
I snached the gun away&
Dropped the bullets to the ground

From standing up to bended knee,
You're all I am, and all I see,
I watch you, as you too watch me,
My spirit soars, you make me free.
I think of now all we have done,
Our lame small jokes, our naughty puns,
Our days lost sleeping in the sun,
It all but waits to be outdone.
This sparkly jewl shall match but you,
And with it all the girls will view,
The spark of love that I imbue,
This life is long past overdue.
My little frog, he watches now,
I write to you, my thoughtful vows,
I sit beneath the tree's long boughs,
I miss you already, oh how...

Affecting every part of it
It scatters in my body

Everytime i look in those eyes
When i kiss you
When you push me away
When you touch
Killing me softly
When you turn away
Drives me crazy
Thinking of you
Theres this burning sensation
When you're infront of me
It's poisoning me... killing me
But it makes me want to live
What the hell have you done?!
To make me love you like this?!

Watch him go,
he zooms around.
But where I wonder,
is he bound?
So bright and yellow,
so round and sleek.
Timid yet bold,
anything but weak.
Not two faces,
only one at a time.
Up and up and,
up he does climb.
So hungry hungry,
never full at all.
Quite odd indeed,
for he is small.
And though it seems,
he has many a-pill.
He is never at all,
sick or ill.
Whatever the task,
do it he can.
For he is the only,
the only PacMan.

The Devil in DisguiseThe sound of Freddy Mercury singing "We will rock you" in his head was not as pleasant as he had hoped for. Sighing, he looked through the sniper scope once more, his eyes tired of looking to the same grassy, open area that was covered in rust red something. A slight gust carried the scent of the dead to his nose through the broken, dismembered, two story house. Shattered boards lay everywhere, covered in dust, blood and spit. This house was once a home for someone, but they were long dead now, probably rotting in the floor. His mind kept wandering away from the scope.The Devil in Disguise4 years ago in Horror More Like This

The exhausting length of the journey back to Eastcastle gave Nire an idea of just how long she'd been missing. Ever since Lucian had conceded to take her home, not another word had been said on the subject. As the legions rode though the city streets, Nire blushed and felt more than a little awkward riding at the head of the spectacle. No one in the city knew why the Lord of Shadows had rode out in such a hurry and then called for his legions, and curious eyes fell on the brown haired girl seated in front of him.
Normally, Lucian would have chosen a more discreet way to bring Nire back into the city. However he had been planning o
