Alice had spent the night, and her hair was almost up my nose. She smelled delightfully Alice-like: a scent that could only be described by her name. Resisting the urge to pull her closer to me, I instead rolled over and sat up in my make-shift bed. Although we were much too old for sleepovers, my Mom let her stay over when her parents fought. I didn't understand why it was such a big deal. My parents fought all the time and I just tuned them out. I was just happy to have Alice in my room.
I heard my mother's faint call from the bottom of the stairs. Hoping Alice wouldn't wake, I pushed myself up and turned the doorkno
LadiesLadies3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ladies are suppose to dress
In flattering skirts
And non-revealing shirts.
Wear their makeup so neat,
A ring on their hand,
And heels on their feet.
To have good manners,
And to be polite,
But also to show great might.
Ladies are suppose to think before they speak;
Selecting only the best of words,
So a waste will not leak.
As should they have great wisdom,
And be caring and unique.
Beautiful as a crystal or as an exquisite antique.
Ladies deserve a gentleman,
As opposites do not attract.
One that completes her,
And takes her on the right track.
All women are suppose to be ladies;
To cherish life as they please,
But the select few is decreasing,
And the women who are ladies are soon none to be.

Mewtwo glared at Lucario, eyes so ferocious he was certain he would go blind if he did not look away from them. Supposedly the powerful psychic had the ability to kill him before he could even blink, and so he sharpened his reflexes as much as possible and was ready to leap away at the slightest notice of an attack. Meanwhile, the dark radiance grew so thick and hopeless that Lucario wondered if maybe he had already been attacked, life fading away from him as he was slowly dying.
Instantly, everything let up as Mewtwo turned his back to them through a swaying motion, Lucario falling forward in surprise.
"Farewell," he said, bending his legs to the ground and getting ready to take off.
"Wait, Mewtwo!" Mew shouted in surprise as she flew towards him, "You came all this way for nothing!?"

Blaze leaped off of Latios and started to jog quickly. I have no idea why he's doing that. Then, as the top reaches our sight, Blaze stops in front of a small oasis. He looks down at his refection.

There are those we can find with the skin
Ones that are easily seen by the naked eye
And those we can find only by the soul within
The ceramic cup is smooth and glossy
A honey scent sways from steaming tea
Those that drink with pinky out feel classy
Tea feels warm and like a welcomed embrace
When I touch your face
When I grasp your hands
I feel the sweet kindness inside
I know where the concern stands
But when you touch my own face
When my hands would be enveloped by your own
Can you feel the scars inside?
Can you feel the pain that brings me down?
The ceramic cup became rough and worn
A scent is gone and steam faded cold
The one that drank lost their class

These Four White WallsThere is a room where I belongThese Four White Walls3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where no souls may enter
Where no one can hear my cries
These four white walls
Reveal nothingness and abandonment
I was always the girl on the sidelines
Where all I could do was watch from a distance
While you shared your warmth with another
These four white walls
Reflect my empty world and forgotten wishes
I wish you would reach out to me
As I reached to you when I broke
Can you see the stitches through my torment?
These four white walls
They may as well be padded to forget my sanity
You said nothing would change when I left
These four white walls
I've become hidden from the world
These four white walls
You've disappeared; please, find me once more
These four white walls
White just won't do
These four white walls
Be my brush and return, and my love for you will be my palette
Help me rid myself of these white walls of suffering

A rather trivial thought:
Fate is like water,
one drop of it can make its surroundings ripple.
Did you know, that out of everything the world has, and will create, I think words are the most powerful weapon?
With just some simple words, the world can stop. Carriages come to a standstill, everyone’s eyes a handful of people.
“Halt! We’ll shoot anyone who moves!”
Guns held high, each of them pointing their weapons at different people. With masks covering their faces’, despair apparent on each of them. Pure despair.
Though, I found something far more interesting than these thugs: Ciel Phantomhive and his Butler. As the sky went from the beautiful turquoise to a chartreuse colour, I sighed.
After all, someone did something that changed fate itself. Today was no longer a good day.
Hand on metal, seven gunshots went off.
