TrembleThe Countess has lost track of time. She no longer knows the date, month, or even how long she has been in the tower. Despite this, she has made some new companions that took up a few hours of the unending days.
There was a hole in the wall so food could be passed to her. Her company rarely joined her inside her cell, and spoke to her through the opening. "They only charged you with thirty or so murders." The succubus filled her in on the latest details of her trial. Erzsebet could not see her through hole much, but she sounded so young, not like a being that had been alive hundreds of years.
"Only thirty?" She replied with a laugh. "I'm almost embarrassed."
The two spoke of the trial, and of many other things. The succubus, who gave the Countess the name Secunda to call her, was just as educated as her on several matters, such as politics, ancient literature, and philosophy.

Not something inside a bottle of booze turned loose with some hardcore tunes,
Being bi is who you are,
Not an outfit your trying on,
Being bi is not a choice,
not a chance for popularity,
Being bi is loving both genders,
Not kissing your freinds to turn a few heads,
Being bi is being born that way,
Not being born straight or gay,
Being bi is being you,
Not kissing and feigning romance for social status.
Being bi is not a choice,
Not a choice for popularity,
Being bi is confusion,
Not knowing what you do is for kicks,
Being bi is about love,
Not about fun.
Being bi is about being you,
Not being someone else.

PoetryThere is something about poetryPoetry10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
that loosens the soul
it evokes strong feelings
it never gets old
it is pure emotion
feelings that do not waver
bottled up inside
waiting for the right paper
bright and cheerful
gloomy and sad
loving and tender

it doesnt matter
whatever the mood
a poem can be found
that will fit the groove
that you cannot see

poetryI write because I canpoetry10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I write because I will
I write what's on my mind
And I write that with a quille
No need for memory
Or any sign of sin
Just some words from my mind
And here's where it begins
I sit in a room of hurt and dispair
Maybe start writing about that girl crying over there
She seems so lifeless, tired and weak
With long black and red hair covering her face while she weeps
They aren't always right
They aren't always true
They aren't always about me
Not all about you
But they're about something
I'm yet to find out what
They come from my mind
Sometimes from my heart
I can write of love
I can write of pain
I can write of hate
I can write in vein
But one thing I can't do is say what I know
Because that young girl crying could ruin the show
The one in the corner with the black and red do
That one about the crying is about me not you.
PoetryI found meaningPoetry11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In words so unspoken,
And the places
No eye catches.
In the shade of behemoth movement,
Watching a life
Behind the borders of mind,
Without a breath or word
A reason to question the air above my head.
How I breathe
And am held down,
And crawl through forests
Still as the sky.
And listen to what was always there
Between branches and channels,
Learn from each
To know yourself.
And the one's you would surrender it all for.
Continue with that emblem
Out of corners.
Make the road your own.
Forget each curve
And listen in silence.
There we find answers that we only dreamed to know.
Easter chocolate - MattxMelloMello liked Easter. That was obvious. It had to do with his religion and chocolate. Two of his favorite things. Every year Mello would make his rounds collecting chocolate from the other orphans. The ones who didn't like chocolate and where content with jelly beans or allergic to chocolate, brown nosers who wanted to stay on Mello's good side, and the orphans who could be intimidated into handing over the goods with a particularly scary and possibly copyrighted glare. Needless to say, Mello was up to his respective ass in chocolate.Easter chocolate - MattxMello7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
And there was Matt. Another one of Mello's favorite things, not that he would admit this. Matt normally handed over his chocolate, possibly because he was allergic, happy with jelly beans, afraid of Mello's copyrighted glare, or perhaps because he had expected that if he was Mello's closest friend Mello got all his chocolate.
The trouble began when Mat began to question the natural

What's the big deal?
If I tell my parents
Their hearts may never heal?
Should I really be concerned?
Should I even care?
If I don't let them know
I'd be choking on air
Yeah I like girls
But I like guys too
For now I'm stuck in a rut
What am I to do?
I seem in-denial
'Cause that's what people want to hear
It's shoved down my throat
I can barely even smile

I'll take all my
Anger, sadness, joy, appreciation, observation
The metaphysical, the ethereal
And put it onto here.
Write black ribbons onto white paper
And unravel the sphere
Of flowing thoughts and clashing voices
The crashing of waves and the foam of the sea.
I think poetry in the shower
Poetry in my sleep
Poetry before and after I make a leap
I think poetry when I watch people dying
And when I hear children sighing
Poetry when I watch a machine
All in those monochrome films in history.
Though I feel it, I still don't know the words
Forming in my mouth but not coming out
Like tears that haven't been formed
They exist mentally, but pyschically it has no form.
I'll take this
And place it onto here
And if you stay very silent
You can hear the moving of gears
The heavenly spheres being the spark of electricity
Moving me, driving me into the ground
The silence resound.
And I'll take this
Emotion- this devastation, this reverberation
All that makes a human free

Maria laughed, "Are you serious? As if some invasion force made up of some lame Takigakure shinobi could actually pose any type of threat to us."
Hittokiri shook his head as he stood up, "You don't know Setsuna like I do, he has jutsu in his arsenal that could easily wipe out our hideout. A guy like that leading an invasion force of Takigakure's finest is overkill."
"If that's the case then we need to get back to the hideout and warn the others before Setsuna and his invasion force gets there," Daemen said as he crossed his arms across his chest.
Hittokiri nodded, "Right," he turned to Shiryuu, "I don't think I need to tell you that I'm really pressed for time here, can I really trust you to take care of Hikarin?"
"Of course," Shiryuu replied as he reached into his tattered cloak and pulled out a scroll, "Just sign your name on this scroll with your blood and you and I will be bound to one another under the code of

"Fura!" A woman called out with a disconcerting scream of desperation. Tears welled up in her deep brown eyes. They streamed down like a creek along the contours of her stout face. The teardrops dripped onto the sleeves of a long brown haired woman with piercing blue eyes and a scar on her left cheek.
"Masaki!" A masculine voice boomed from a few feet away. A man wearing a tan flak vest was pinned to the rocky ground via a blade embedded in his shoulder, courtesy of Hittokiri, who was standing over him.
The man's eyes, which were amethyst in color, reflected rage in its rawest; purest form. "Hittokiri, you bastard! Why are you doing this!?"
Hittokiri smiled as he sunk his blade deeper into the man's shoulder, eliciting a grunt of pain from him. "Well that's a stupid thing to ask Fura. Its because you two won't tell me whether Setsuna is in the village right now or not."

Will you be there when i die
kiss me one final time
catch me when i fall and bleed
would you even wanna cry
while you watch me slowly die
watching as my blooddrips
rolling off my finger tips
drips onto the floor
more and more
hearing all my bloody cries
watch tears roll from my eyes
gasping for one final breath
pain swells up in my chest
spreading through my arms and legs
but i can still feel pain
i try to regret nothing
but that is so hard to do
when all i hear is
"but i love you"

As the wind,
Poetry is something you must feel,
It IS art and yet it is not.
Poetry is beautiful,
It is the chronicle of life.
It describes anything,
From real to abstract,
From surreal to a fact.
It means something,
It is a potion of words,
It is a thought.
Poetry is different,
everytime it's read.
Poetry is a message.
everytime it's said.
More then just words.

No fairytales were read.
As if it was forbidden,
By the monsters in her head.
And all they thought was silly,
Was quickly thrown away.
By a girl who had to grow up,
By a girl who couldn't play.
All her dreams and fantasies,
All her fears and hopes.
Thrown in a bag of garbage,
Balloons and skipping ropes.
The teddybears and puzzles,
All had to retreat.
For new puzzles in her head,
She never would complete.
No poetry was written,
No fairytales were told.
Her eyes spoke of a sad tale,
Her hands were always cold.
She thought of no white horses,
For she was no princess.
Her life was about papers,
And secret loneliness
All her dreams and fantasies,
Would never come true now.
For she had forsaken them,
Without knowing how.
Remember how happy she was.
She doesn't even know.
The little girl she used to be,
Was forgotten long ago.

Bold and blaring, the girl shall fall.
Homophobia is the words that spew out of their lips,
The ignorant comments, they make me sick.

It was not intended, but in his mind its caught.
Homophobia is the lock on the closet,
I am trapped in and there is no way out.

hanging over a torn up and damaged door;
a sad one too, says the tear soaked bed in
the corner; A strange, God-hating
one, says the carving in the wall and
the positions of the rocks on the shelf;
but not a girl of society, say the poems
of suicide and depression on the desk.
A cat lived with her, says the scratching
post near the door with catnip covering the
floor around it, and it lived in the room
says the bag of cat food ripped open.
Light was scarce, say the candles melted
on the desk dripping down to the floor,
and so was food, say the half eaten bars
of food and bags of chips.
Something went wrong, says the knife in
a puddle of blood. Poems on the desk say
she was not part of society; the color of
her dress say she worn it many times.
And the cat? Hairballs line the floor like soldiers -
cat food, some black hair, a few potato chips.
Something went wrong, they say.
