Someone forgot to untie the noose
Friends and lovers look amused
Watching you being carried out to sea
Their faces filled with glee
We have no sympathy
It's your grim reality
Tears are far and few
Cause no one cares for you
Falling into the abyss
You surely won't be missed
As the stars fell from the sky
They don't even realize that you'll be coming back tonight
And make them wonder why you didn't die
Now it's your time to say
Why did you leave me this way
And for this you'll pay
Get on your knees and plead , cry til your eyes bleed
It is I who has no sympathy
This is your gruesome reality
Bringing death to your door , leaving you lying dead on the floor

What She Could Understand (Rock Lee x Reader)Sweat dripped into brilliant (e/c), forming rivulets down a heated and reddened face. Blinking roughly, hands too dirtied to wipe at those eyes, you shakily picked yourself up from the ground and once again faced your opponent. Almost slouching into a low defensive stance, your weight even on your feet, you stared ahead with determination, and those damnably beautiful eyes.What She Could Understand (Rock Lee x Reader)4 months ago in Romance More Like This
Too many times had he knocked you down. Sure, it was just training, but it felt as true as any defeat every time. All it took for him to catch you off guard and throw you to the foot-trodden dirt and packed earth was a swift kick, or a charge, or the swipe of a clenched and well-aimed fist. It would connect, or you would dodge improperly, and you would go flying from the force. Or, worse, you would land heavily just in front of him, wind knocked from your lungs and tears pricking your eyes.
He commanded you to get up each time, his own nearly black eyes blazing with fighting spirit equal to and surpassing your own e

"Can you keep a secret?"
Twilight was lying in her bed wide awake, staring at the ceiling. The sunlight was creeping into the room behind the thick blue curtains; the light filtering through casted faint shadows on the walls. The mare was going over yesterday's lesson in her head. Instead of ending awkwardly like the one earlier this week, it had just been awkward in general. The lengthy discussions she and the Princess usually had about the books had been diminished into a few words and there had been no "ideas" from Princess Celestia. At least this time Twilight had been prepared for it, though the way she prepared for something like this meant that there was rarely much more she could learn. Luckily studying was something Twilight greatly enjoyed. She also got to spend time with the Princess - something she enjoyed even more, lately more than ever. But no matter how much she loved all this, she hadn't been able to shake the nagging feeling that s
Love The Way You Lie (Sasuke)He had this habit of always coming back. He thought of it as coming home. But it was always the same routine.

He would leave every time, or be left. He would break down, sliding down the wall with his back to the cool surface, breaking down and pouring his soul into his battered cries. He would cradle his bruising cheek, rub the raw marks around his neck, try to make them go away.
They never did.
But he had this habit of always coming back. It didn’t matter how often he was hurt, didn’t matter how many hurtful words were spit in his face. It didn’t matter, the acid burning at his heart and eating away his essence. Because he always crawled back, begging for something he ultimately knew he couldn’t have.
All he had ever wanted was to feel loved. To be accepted. To be needed and w

The greeting echoed emptily off the small apartment walls, no one there to hear it but him. Dust covered everything in a fine layer again... Had he really been gone that long? A month didn't feel so far away anymore.
Cerulean eyes wandered aimlessly over the sparse furniture, picking out individual pieces of dust floating in the shafts of light created by the blinds covering his window. Everything was the same as he'd left it, nothing out of place; not that he had expected any less.
The blonde sighed heavily, slouching back against the door he had just entered through. Still the same... Which went for everything. Same village, no troubles. Same drive and still no Sasuke.
His breaths were heavy with remorse and defeat as Naruto gazed emptily out through those broken window eyes. He had failed once more to bring his friend back. It was nothing new, but the wound still wept crimson tears.
Every mission had been such a strain on him lately. It didn't matter how simpl

"Of course, Sou."
The little boy calmly walked to his father's side, small hand instantly coming up to clutch at his father's ever-bandaged fingers. He turned a serious expression to the older brunette—an expression Sou had definitely gotten from his daddy—and asked, "Why do you go to the memorial every day?"
Sasuke's eyes widened fractionally at the question. Of course, his son was very sharp. That was a trait both he and Sakura had given to all of their children and he could not be more grateful. But after years of explaining away his absence in the early mornings, that was a question he hadn't expected.
"You wanna know why I go to the memorial huh?" he echoed, a mysterious smile taking root on his pale lips. He looked up from the boy to gaze out the window he was standing just in front of; the window with the perfe

Naruto had come up with the idea of course. It was down time now; no real threats on the horizon, nothing new to speak of, and missions were at a low because of the season. It just so happened to turn out that none of the teams you associated with were doing anything important, and so when the blonde pitched you the idea of having a house party you instantly jumped on the wagon, so to speak.
You’d spent a while helping him set up and inviting the rest of the teams. The only person who hadn’t agreed (either right away or with some coaxing in Shikamaru’s case) had been Sasuke. You would never have admitted it, but that was the one person you’d been hoping would turn up to the pa

I tried to save you, but there was nothing I could do. You wouldn’t listen to me, no matter how much I screamed and cried. I tried to help, but you pushed me away. I tried to get you to see reason and I really wanted to help, no matter what it cost me; you did nothing but keep me distanced.
It’s my fault though. I know that. I should have tried harder. I should have known that you would leave us that day. I should have been there for you when you needed me the most. But I wasn’t. I wasn’t there for my best friend, even though I knew something was wrong. I shouldn’t have listened when you told me to go away, and now everyone is suffering because of me.
I’m so sorry.
It felt like we always did everything together back in those days. It would be just the four of us, hanging out and having fun, all of us smiling and laughing. Except, you never really smiled, did you? And we never noticed, it seemed. Maybe you thought we didn’t care

The brunette sniffed heavily, wiping under his eyes with the back of his hand. "I didn't think anyone was here," he admitted, tone thick and heavy and humiliated. Some strong shinobi he was, breaking down crying in the middle of the woods at night like a lost child. He should have been more attentive, should have realized his old teacher was right there.
"Well I am, Sasuke," Kakashi responded after a moment's silence. His tone spoke of hidden promises and assurances beyond that of literal sense. "I've always been here."
The Uchiha chose to ignore the way his chest tightened and his eyes burned, fighting back more tears even as he began to lose. "I've missed you all," he suddenly choked out, turning to Kakashi with a st
Waking Is A Dream (SasuNaru)Deep blue eyes snapped open and instantly he was aware of his prickling skin, his racing heart, his shallow, quipped breaths. He felt like he was suffocating, still felt like he was being chased, and felt like if he didn’t move, didn’t flee, his life was in grave peril. He could see the ceiling of his room, felt the heat of his lover lying next to him, but couldn’t seem to shake that terrorized feeling of having nearly been caught.Waking Is A Dream (SasuNaru)1 month ago in General Fiction More Like This
Naruto rolled onto his side so quietly and so carefully one would think he was trying to avoid alerting anyone to his presence. And somewhere in his mind, he still was. Honestly, he couldn’t even remember his dream, hadn’t from the second he awoke, but it was prominent enough in his thoughts that it frightened him yet. It was with a tremble and a tingling in his gut that he subtly pressed close to his brunette partner’s back, leeching warmth from him.

By Your Side, Forever and Ever
Greed now rules the spoils of war.
Queen has set her throne on the royal hall (the ruins of the realm)
I have walked through the dark
I have fought my way out of her prison.
I have witnessed the war
I have found my love wrapped in oblivion.
The eldritch swarm over our world,
My shining one, where have you gone?
Devourer's claws hold on your heart,
My shining love, where are you lost?
Broken harmony, its protectors fell
Imprisoned their kin, in repressed tears (the realm of peace)
From beasts he swore to shield his home,
My shining one, the guardian.
Wake from the queen's dormant veil,
Within your heart resides our hope.
In despair we need your gallant strength,
My shining one, reclaim your shield.

“You think you’re so great…” The words came out quietly, softly almost, but there was a blazing rage barely concealed behind the way it trembled. The blonde’s fists lay at his sides, clenched so tightly they shook, and still it wasn’t enough to curb the heat growing in his cheeks and the stinging behind his eyes.
Cold charcoal eyes watched him emotionlessly. Nothing but a chasm created by their attacks separated the pair. Sasuke stayed quiet, seemingly uncaring. The way he looked down his nose at Naruto from his slight vantage spoke more than his silence.

Sasuke looked over his head with a smile as he felt strong arms come up over his shoulders from behind. Naruto looked like he had just awoken--circles under his eyes not yet faded, eyes glassy, hair a bit of a mess. But he was smiling the most beautiful smile the man had ever seen.
"Just finishing up some last minute paperwork so we can have the rest of our vacation to ourselves," he replied in a contented hum, accepting the gracious, lazy kiss that was pressed to his lips. His chest hummed while his skin sang pleasantly of the touch.
"Well then hurry up and come back to bed," Naruto languidly returned. "I'm feelin' lazy and I got some things I think I need to give ya." His tone was sultry and sleepy and everything perfect in Sasuke's world.
Before the blonde could slip his arms back off of Sasuke's shoulders, the older man caught his left hand and brought it back to his lips. He gave the blonde a meaningful, upside-down

His hand moved of its own volition, reaching shakily for his lover's face. When it made contact with skin it was already far too cold, fingers not responding the way the once skilled shinobi knew he should have managed. But in the face of something so helpless, he supposed he really didn’t care.
Naruto sobbed hard again, clutching at the Jonin's blood-soaked hand, tears pouring down his face and marring his vision. He didn't have the words to say; didn’t have the strength to save him. He couldn’t do anything but sit there and cry.
