Meg watched Castiel from behind the door's glass. His posture was stock still, hands clasped in his lap, unmoving. His deep blue eyes only gave away the fact that he was feeling anything. They were panicked, darting wildly across the room. Far from the bright gleam that was usually seen in all those dick-bag angels. Castiel was the exception for once. He looked dulled and raw, like an exposed nerve leaving space for the pain to enter, accepting it in. Meg felt sad at that (though she would deny it in any courtroom or torture dungeon they stuck her in), it was just pitiful to see the broken husk he'd become.
She looked back to when she'd first met him, a fallen angel. He wasl so set against Lucifer, the only angel like him; fallen, wanted as a fugitive. So prideful. So pompous. So hot, but that was besides the point. The next time they'd met he still had that pride. He walked about as a shield to the Winchesters, giving them an escape plan from working with her (or demons in general). T
NeedThis fall found me in a messNeed4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I was trying to understand why I need you
There are many things I could confess
If only I knew that they were true
The way you lean into me
And the way you caress my heart
While stabbing away care free
Every day is a new start
I wish I could say goodbye
I wish I could let go
I wish what I said wasn't lies
I wish I could let you know
It hurts to be with you
I love the way it feels
At least this part is true
At least these words are real
You should know that I care
Otherwise I'd leave
And the way this is isn't fair
I've developed a strange need
I hope in time you'll see
I hope you'll get the truth
Look at what you've done to me
And how much I love you

See the black hats, with the war paint
The guards are runnin' scared but you know the girls ain't
Soon as we hit the docks, look at all them sailors face
Drop the anchor once and make the ocean shake
Suede insides, with mah rudder roarin'
It's the big ship, you know what I paid for it (for it)
And I got an engine made of metal
Sails unfurl, I'm checkin' game, I'm ballin' out on every level...
Hear them haters talk, but there's nothing you can tell
We're the pirates of the seas and we always fell em
No love for them other crews, we breakin' hearts
Black Fedoras, push to start!
Yeah ah ha, you know what it is
Everythin' we do, we do it big
Ah ha, and you know when you scream its nothin'
When we dock in the town, that's somethin'!
Droppin' into town; got the gold we sellin everythin'
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
We lay it down from the coast to the Nether region
Black and yellow, black and yellow

dancing past like a secret, infectious
changing and morphing like Chinese whispers
buffeted easily by the breeze
The source of such, the mouth, those lips
grinning with pleasure at the secrecy
the perfect ecstasy in that singular moment
that the smoker, the drinker, the lover,
will live in forever.

Can you see
what all the world has-
Done to me
I've locked away my-
I wanna break
My shatter point, my shatter point
I'm up against the wall at my shatter point
A thousand faces keep calling to me into the night
Their whispers drive me further up and away from the light!
Just fall again and-
I want you down and you'll-
Just stop breathing and-
The shatter point, the shatter point
You know that you are up and against the wall
The shatter point, my shatter point
Leave me breaking against my shatter point
A thousand faces keep calling me into the night
I'll waste away in the whispers that taint all the light
Just leave me breaking against the weight of the wall
It keeps me close to the edge until I learn to FALL!

You feel like things have gone into the ground
When everything is gone and crashing down.
You took your pain and tried to make it end
But give me one more chance to hold your hand...
See I will believe it...
I know you're strong inside

Cause when you open those eyes my dear;

Just look ahead and hearts will heal with time.

Immortal HeartHe serves overseas,Immortal Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
His name on her tongue
And safety on her mind
Wherever she goes.
She thinks of him daily
And scribbles short poems
He will never be able to read-
War is a terrible thing.
She thinks of silly rhymes,
Her lonely heart spilling
On weathered pages to express
A love she has never before known.
She tries to force herself
To send them all, surely
A package he would be surprised
And glad to receive.
She stores them in her attic
For the day he returns home;
She thinks maybe then
She can find the will to show
Him what she has been doing
Besides counting the slow days
Until his scheduled return.
She knows the risks of war,
Her mind never easy before
She goes to bed-she dreams
Of fear and worry and heartache.
She prays for him every day,
Wondering if he prays for her,
Sheltered in her large house
Surrounded by a white fence.
Too many months then years too late,
She climbs up the creaking steps
Of the attic every morning when
She wakes and shuffles through
Them all, each a speci
The One Who CaredThe one that I cared the mostThe One Who Cared3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one that I loved the most
I try helping them but your help was unwanted here
I try asking questions but I just end up guessing the answer instead of asking straight out
But no, it's none of your business even if you care and love me
Sure it is fine, I will let you be
And thinking letting you just talk will help you feel better but not this time
Feeling useless and empty
But why I like this?
Do I care too much?
Do I always want the best for you?
Wasn't I was there when you needed the most?
More and more becoming distance
You and I, we are not the same
Different goals, different reasons
I cared about you but you just threw it away
Turn your back to me
Nothing left to do but to give you space
But it felt like it was a mistake
It went from days to weeks to months without talking
But then something change everything
A mysterious call came through, I couldn't recognise the number but I picked up
It was your mom and told me something bad happened to you

DreamersThey were dancing in the room where the chandeliers burned as bright as the sun,Dreamers3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The music playing loud
But the laughter all around held the real melody.
Every step took a pain away from their hearts,
Every kiss washed away their innocent sins.
Then the hall vanished,
Another room appeared,
The room they had when they were little.
Same as they remembered it
It even looked as big.
Then they looked down, they were kids again.
The girls with sparkling gold wings were having tea on the fluffy clouds on a sunny day with their dolls,
And the boys were saving the world with the help of their action figures, a cape around their shoulders.
They were truly happy.
Now, they were back to the place where they most dreaded.
Where they lost, lost everything they ever wanted.
Some heard the razor sharp words screaming and screeching in their ears,
Nothing could block it out,
Others saw themselves fall hard on the concrete floor with no one to catch them.
They saw themselves lose

The thunder scared Russell awake. On nights like these he'd spend the night in his mother's arms until the storm was over.
Suddenly there was a blast of lightning and the lights went out.
Another thing Russell was afraid of was being alone in the dark.
He slowly found the door and walked out to the dark hallway. There he saw Carl looking out the window watching the rain.
"I thought you were asleep." Carl said to him, finally looking at the clock to see how late it was.
"I'm scared of the thunder. Usually on nights like these I'd spend them with Mama until the storm ended."
Carl smiled, knowing what he was getting at. "Come here."

The Aphrodisiac's HymnI was brokenThe Aphrodisiac's Hymn3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With no token
Of gratitude for my tears unspoken,
Dragging through the lonely years,
Smiling with an anger hot,
No one to hold me through the fears,
In need of love I never got.
My pen now running out of ink,
I'll use my blood instead, I think,
It's been shed to the brink,
Fed to the sink,
As though it always meant nothing;
So why's it matter?-- It matters not,
And those who mind don't matter a lot,
Yet you spend years finding someone who minds
About the matter you always cry.
What's the matter, you want to die?
No, you just want love's sweet lie.
The need is tucked away so tidy.
Obsessed? Confess, black Aphrodite!
Begging the night for it's bitter kiss.
The love you've never had, but miss.
Our Society's LieWhat you see out on the screenOur Society's Lie3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Doesn't reflect who you really are
They're telling you how to be a queen
But all you become is a broken star
'Inner beauty is just for the ugly'
I must stand as proof of this lie
Your 'friends' like the new ecstasy
While deep inside all you do is die
The way we're supposed to look is a lie
Who's opinion is it to say who we are?
As we follow, the media's noose ties
And our own reality grows much too far
We all have free will as humans, as us
So why do you let them control how you look?
Don't let it go, don't dive under the bus
Don't be proud to say you dress from a book
Whether your thin or fat or in between
Ugly, pretty or average, just plain
Keep believing who you are to yourself: a queen
Don't forget to keep hold through the media's rain
Take these words and all alike these
Hold them close and close your eyes
Believe them, keep remembering, please
Never believe our society's lies

The other you'll be soo down nothing would make sense
You'll face hate, betrayal, pain
At the same time you'll find love, peace and happiness
You'll make friends and you'll make enemies
You'll laugh and you'll cry
Your heart will be broken and your friends will help you put together the pieces
You'll see fights, wars, disasters
Help the one in need
Learn to ignore the hate
You'll trust the wrong people
You'll lie and people will lie to you
You'll fail and you'll succeed
You will get knocked down and you'll stand up again
You'll fight for what you believe in
And you'll have to stand alone
You'll face death of your dear ones
Some people will just walk away from your life
You'll have to learn to let go
It will be hard, but not impossible
You'll make mistakes, you'll regret

Fire. He is fire. Every bit of him. His hair, his personality, his heart. An ever-burning, uncontrollable fire.
I really liked him from the first time we met. Y'know, he was cool, determined, and talented, too. An amazing lead guitarist.
But there is a dark side to everybody. Sometimes he gets so mad. It really scares me. I try to hide it because I'm supposed to be The Almighty Hetfield, the macho front man. But I really do get scared. His excessive drinking fuels his rage. Most of the time Lars and Ron chicken out, and it's me who has to calm him.
He punched me once, a few weeks ago when he was having an episode. The impact cut my lip, but once he saw the blood, the fire in his eyes was extinguished. My eyes teared up a little in reaction to the pain, but I couldn't take it personally. It wasn't his fault. I walked him quietly to his room and sat him down on his bed. I put myself on the other bed in the room, facing him.
"James, I didn't mean to. I-I'm so sorry," he apologized to me.

I let him sleep in. He needed it. After he kissed me, he plopped his head on my shoulder and fell right asleep. I tucked him into my bed and slept on the couch in the living room.
I've been awake for like an hour now. Dave's still asleep. I've been staring into the crappy television set, though I guess I should get off my lazy ass.
I walk over to the guitar sitting in the corner and pick it up. What old songs do I know? I try Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin. Wow, it's been a while. I guess it's a good thing the guitar isn't plugged in. I sit back down on the couch and try to remember how it goes.
Suddenly, I hear a loud thump and a "Fuck!" from the other room. Dave! He trudges out of the room and into the bathroom. He doesn't look too happy. I can hear him messing around in the bathroom. Must be looking for pills to relieve his headache.
Then, he opens the door and walks to the room I'm sitting in. He looks down at me. His face is covered with that mop of fiery red hair. It's
