Why people were insane
Why is everyone so vain
Why cant we just
Forget the pain
And live for today.
We fight for peace
We live to die
We love to hate
We bleed to death
We tend to cry,
We do things wrong,
But we make it right.
Because that's what humans are for.

We are the Word ThievesWe writers are criminals.We are the Word Thieves5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
But we are the best kind of criminals.
We steal words.
We'll never be punished, for we are always needed. Whether through the speech of ever deceitful humans, or through the mute tongues of print and screen, we will always be there, working our many-pronged magic. Our swords are constantly out, skewering towards the alphabet with such regularity that the words stand proud, only to bow to our will, bleeding emotion to our clients.
For we are the Word Thieves, and the words are our quarry.
Even if the censors come and try to clamp us down, we'll disappear into the shadows and reveal our true beauty. It is here we show how we don't need a wave from a wand or a wish from the human mind to transform into our heart's desires, when all the answers can be written in a twist of a pen.
And when we transform, we rule Heaven and Earth.
We are the pirates that traverse the word-filled seas, setting sail with the wind and waves. Through storm and sun, our sail is splashed w

Don't Envy the RocksRocks are not to be enviedDon't Envy the Rocks5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
immortal, immobile, and empty
perhaps it was a god
an immortal impeccable being
who in eternity is fleeing
the dying lonely lack of love
an infinite being from above
who lowers himself to this state of
simply watching, only being.
This rock, this god so powerful,
alone, locked in his tower, dull,
so impotent in mind.
At heart, my god, how lonely are you?
How do you survive
knowing when all else is dead that
you will be alive?
When you know everything, my god,
how do you spend your time?
And do you ever find it odd
that we want what is thine?
Perhaps it's death you envy
which is life's eternal goal.
Perhaps that's why you're empty.
Is that why you lack a soul?
What if death is not so bad,
but compliments the life?
giving up all that you had
increases it's worth thrice.
In that case, rock, I do not envy you,
but envy me.
Because I have so much to lose
which adds to life's beauty.
The greatest wealth, my greatest pride
is not in health, but t
Akali and ShenAkali looks over the piece of paper with a sigh. How could things go this far? How could things get so out of hand? She knew it wasn't right, but she'd let it run it's course, and now things were becoming real. They were becoming difficult to deal with, even. She'd never backed down when faced with a challenge, and she wouldn't now, but in the back of her mind, she was aware that she could have single-handedly prevented the whole thing with just a simple 'no, thank you'. But no; she had to be curious, she had to push things a step further, and she'd ended up here, with a piece of paper in her hand orders to meet with the head of the Kinkou immediately.Akali and Shen3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As much as she attempted to deny it, the girl knew exactly what it was about. She could make up excuses as to why he wanted to meet with her all day and probably well into the night, but they would hold no water over the one thing that stuck out in her mind: she'd been seen, trapped in an intimate kiss with a man who'd worked alon

His Beloved (Prussia x Reader part 2)It had been quite some time.. many tears were shed, many laughs and smiles slipped through, much pain had been endured, yet Gilbert could not forget what he'd done to lose his beloved.

He was able to keep his mind occupied, but when all was said and done she was still there, always in the back of his mind.
On this particular day, Gilbert was sitting on a bench in the park. It had become a regular pastime for him, just sitting there and people-watching.
“Hi,” Said a very familiar voice.
“__-____! What are you doing here?” Gilbert asked, trying not to sound overexcited. “I mean, hey. What’s up?”
_____ sensed the embarrassment in his voice and giggled. “I just came to enjoy the day.. and stuff. You?” she sat down on the bench Gilbert was sitting on.
“I uh…” Gilbert hesitated. ‘make something up, verdammt!’

Gaining consciousness, you feel a warmth encasing your body; opening your eyes, you come face to face with a certain sleeping Prussian. He looked so adorable! His sleeping face reminded you of the episodes in World Series when ChibiPrussia was introduced. Still asleep, Gilbert mumbles something in German and pulls you closer to his body, his arms wrapped around your waist and lower back. Needless to say, your face matched his eyes; your body stiffens as his lips brush against your cheek, damn him!
"Gil-Gilbert. H-hey, wake up." You place a hand on his chest, your arms were kind of stuck there, and gently shake him. Damn he felt nice, if this was a dream, you would have tried to wake him up a different way. (Wink, wink).
"Mmm. Hm? Oh, Guten morgen, liebster." He closes his eyes again and nuzzles your forehead again.
"G-Gil, get up. You're crushing me."
"Hm, I don't vanna~." He lowers his face so he can nuzzle your neck; staying like that

You lay in bed completely naked, wedged between your two best friends, and now apparent lovers, Arthur Kirkland and Francis Bonnefoy, who were also very naked. You shifted uncomfortably, and tried to recall how the hell this had happened. Ah, yes, you remembered now...
“Okay, popcorn , Junior Mints, Reeses Pieces, Red pop, what else? Oh yeah , The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!” You ran frantically around the kitchen, kicking boxes out of your way, wincing when you heard something, probably your brand new china set, break. You had just moved into a brand new apartment about a week ago and you’d barely even started to unpack. But still, that wasn't going to stop you from holding the weekly movie night, every Friday Night. Usually it was horror, and thriller, but occasionally Artie would convince you to watch a romantic comedy. Francis also had some...movie...suggestions, but you never exactly indulged him on watching them.

The bed bounced up and down due to Maria's weight added. You looked up as Maria made herself comfortable on the side of the bed next to you. The windows were open slightly so there was a small breeze in the room along with sunlight. The day was a nice day, other than Romano at work and you having the day alone with Maria.
"Hey Maria! How are you?" You smiled, running your fingers through the young girl's hair.
"Great! Uu Uu! I came to ask you a question that had bothered me for a while." Maria said, tilting her head.

Lovino always watched you from afar. Always wishing you would notice him, and not his stupid fratello. You and Feliciano were the best of friends, always spending time together. But, you barely ever looked twice at him, you only had eyes for Feliciano. So, Lovino assumed you were in love with his brother. One day when he got home, Lovino walked through the door to see you sitting on the couch, alone. And there was no sound of the bubbly fratello in the house.
"Where's stupid fratello?" he asked closing the door. You turned and smirked at him
"Well hello there to you too Lovino." you say sarcastically. Lovino tried hard not to smile, and you didn't notice. You stood up and started walking over to him. "Feliciano is out at the store buying some things." You placed your hands on your hips, "And he's not stupid."
