Trace your fingers,
long and slender, like a widow's legs,
Along my spine
Tangled like a web weaved in a rage;
I am twisted into you
Bare your fangs,
To penetrate my paralyzed flesh:
Cells burn and mutate,
Blood rushes, crawls;
Like magma dismantling the very structures of life
I am dead,
and I am yours

These expectations you've set for me, They surpass anything I could ever reach
These expectations I've set for me, They surpass anything I could ever reach
These expectations... I just can't meet
Everything is just out of reach
Torturing me silently
No one hears my silent cries
My pleas for help
No one hears anything because I am alone
Alone in my torturous expectations
They scream in my mind
I am not good enough for you
I am not good enough no one can see me
No one knows me
No one should
But it does not effect you
It effects no body at all
Because I am alone
In a crowded room
With no one except me
The room is not crowded with people, no
The room is not crowded with what you would think
This room is suffocating me with the expectations whirling around me
But not the ones that others have set, no
This room is suffocating me with
My judgments of me
And my questions to myself
My screams for help
But I am never heard
For this room

Gusters storyGuster walked out of the prison, squinting at the light, and muttered something under her breath. Ill have to get her back later, she thought to herself. She looked up as her eyes adjusted to the brightness and saw a man dressed up in a suit. He seemed rather charming, though the way he carried himself made it seem like he liked being in charge. Since he was in Gusters way, she tried to just keep walking until she got past him towards the nearest bus station home. But he was trying to get her attention.Gusters story5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

“Miss Sweetie Belle...time to wake up.”
Sweetie Belle slowly opened her eyes and rolled over in bed.
“Not now Miss Feather Duster...can’t this wait?” she mewled, pulling her covers over her head in an effort to block out the bright sunlight streaming in through her window. There was a light purple aura and the covers were pulled back, to reveal a rather elderly looking unicorn maid.
“I’m sorry Miss Sweetie Belle, but your mother asks-” At those words, Sweetie Belle let out a groan of frustration and pulled the covers back over her head.
“No! I’m tired and I wanna sleep,” she protested, making a conscious decision to sound as cute as possible.
Miss Feather Duster simply rolled her eyes and pulled the covers away, revealing the small body of Sweetie Belle. Sweetie Belle let out an over dramatic sigh and looked Miss Feather Duster in the eye, be

Daring let out a happy sigh as she poured herself a steaming cup of coffee. At the breakfast table sat Scootaloo, still in her Wonderbolt pajamas, and Comet Tail, whose mane looked as if it were trying to eat his head, and groggily inspecting the morning paper. Suddenly, he frowned and drew the paper closer to his face.
“Um…hey Daring,” he said. “Have you seen this?”
“Seen what?” Scootaloo and Daring asked simultaneously, with Daring sitting down next to Comet and taking a sip of her coffee.
Comet Tail tilted the newspaper towards Daring and pointed a hoof towards a passage on the front page. Daring squinted, then rolling her eyes reached for the pocket of the tattered old shirt she always wore and pulled out her reading glasses.

Apple Buck took a deep breath, looking at himself in the mirror. The sun was just beginning to peek over the eastern fields and the room was bathed in a gentle pink light. He fiddled with his old brown jacket and vest, doing his to best make himself presentable. Today was the first day of his new job. He had shaved, combed his hair and made sure he looked as clean as possible. Though a part of him was laughing on the inside since he knew that it would mean absolutely nothing once he started working, but he also knew that the Apples were still a proud family, even if the times demanded their submission.
Apple Buck tweaked his vest before reaching for his prized hat. His hoof gently pressed on the hat’s rim, and he stopped to glance down at the simple, black and white photograph that sat tucked in the mirror frame. It showed him and his wife, with their three

“Ma, where ya goin?” Applejack asked as Apple Blossom made her way down the stairs, a determined look on her face. She was dressed in a pair of overalls, and wore her normally flowing blonde mane back in a tight bun.
“Mama’s goin’ to work honey, remember?” Apple Blossom replied, her voice kind, yet rushed as she made a last minute touch up in front of a dirty mirror.
“But Momma why ya’ll gotta go to work?” asked Applejack with her head tilted to the side bit, just so she can get a better look at her mother.
When Apple Blossom didn’t answer, Applejack whimpered and gently tugged on her mother’s tail. She paused and looked at Applejack as she sat in the unplowed dirt. Applejack stared up at her with teary, green eyes stared up at the older mare from under the oversized Stetson she now wore on her head at all times

Some guy, sitting on a bench, waiting for his bus as he sips coffee from a Starbucks cup and reads the newspaper. A man and a woman, holding hands in a tight embrace. A taxi with no passenger drives slowly over the cracked pavement. A plump lady goes into a bistro.
Seems pretty average, right?
Let's look at the same scene through my eyes.
I see the guy on the bench, though his cup contains the blood of his last victim as he waits for the bus on a one way trip to hell. The man and the woman holding hands are stalked by a lone figure in the shadows. The taxi driver is insane, on a spree to see how many people he can run over. The pavement is cracked by plants, who will rise, angry at the humans who kill them to build polluted cities. The plump lady going in the bistro doesn't have a taste for the gourmet food, but instead for human flesh.
I see this, anywhere I go.

Rarity now stood in her bedroom, digging through her tremendous closet. Her mane was still bundled up in a towel, as she had just stepped out one of her fabled three-hour showers. In her mouth was a burning cigarette, which caused a small cloud to follow her around.
After the call to Written Script, she had spent another hour in the lab, still trying to figure out the problem with the gem. However, even she had to admit she was at a dead end, and she had since moved on to try to figure out just the right dress for the conference.
Something nice and comfortable... she thought. Probably a good three hour flight to Griefenplatz anyways...wouldn’t want to ruin one of my silk dresses.
Her eyes scanned the dozens of dresses as she shuffled through them. She halted briefly on a flashy red dress.

It was a gorgeous summer morning in the breadbasket of Equestria, without a single cloud in the sky. Acres of apple trees stretched along the gently rolling hills on the outskirts of Ponyville, all in neatly ordered groves. Songbirds filled the air with their delightful music, which brought life to the already beautiful scenery.
And not too far away from the heart of Ponyville, in the unending sea of healthy apple trees, was a scrawny little earth pony filly named Applejack Apple. She was only twelve years old, but she still saw that as no reason she couldn’t enjoy a nice game of Hide and Seek. Which was what she was doing right now. In fact, due to her fragile build, she was easily able to hide in a small bush and watch a massive, dark red earth pony stallion countdown with his face pressed against the trunk of a freshly bucked tree. Seeing him like that made it very hard for Applejack to sup

All of them stopped their battles, their struggles, and fell quiet. Some stood gazing skyward in muted awe, others falling to their knees and bowing their heads in prayerful tears...
Though none of them knew why they did, all of them, from the smallest kobold to the mighty Tarrasque, stopped in a moment of silence, for they knew that somewhere, somehow, a Greatness passed from the realms of the living into the stillness of the dead.
And nothing any of them could do, could restore that Greatness to them. All they knew was that the memory remained, and that was enough to ensure that Greatness could never truly perish.

Beside me, standing, smiling, soullessly
Her head full to the brim with nothingness.
I brought her to this lowly state, you see.
The psychiatrist to madness regressed.
I know no longer why I drove her mad
For I am but a dog, chomping at chains.
Yet so much pride when I saw her new-clad
A harlequin, her wide smile unrestrained.
This madhouse has enough room for us both
But a spoiled child is she, wanting still more.
And for her blind devotion, her I loathe
And she will pay, feel disappointment's sore.
For if shes fool enough to bleed for love
Who am I to deny my turtledove?

Did you know that Tom Beringer is immune to scorpion stings?
Yeah, I saw this PBS special about scorpions in which Tom Beringer was the host.
Huh. Was it any good?
Naw. Well, maybe. After the initial shock of Tom Beringer being immune to scorpion venom, it turns out I really don't have the patience to watch PBS. Even when the host is Tom Beringer or the host is immune to whatever critter's poison that the host could come into contact with, I just can't watch.
I heard Robin Williams got rabies from a dolphin when he hosted a PBS special on dolphins.
Well yeah, that makes sense. Everybody knows dolphins are naturally rabid and dangerous.
Is it dolphin or porpoise?
Either or, I believe.
Where's Robin Williams when you need him?
Taking rabies shots in the ass.

Anyway, here's a little piece called: "Muscle Women: Where's the love?"
Why don't more people love muscle women? What is it about not having a stick-figuresque body that drives people away? Muscles can be sexy too. If muscular men can attract women, why not vice versa? I'm going to explore the possible reasons for people not wanting to have anything to do with muscular women.
1. Muscle women want to make men their sex slaves and/or kill them.
Sure, some of them maybe...and maybe there are some S&M people who like that kinda stuff. But not ALL of them. I bet some guys on the internet saw some pics from Kinsyo(a muscle artist from Japan) or read some web fiction about muscle women who like to kill men.

Without you by my side,
Life feels so dull
Without your mesmerizing eyes and goofy smile,
My heart pains with aching
Without the never- ending joy I have when I see you...
Missing your jokes,
The way you look at me with those eyes,
The way you talk to me,
The way you tell me how important I am to you,
The way you tell me that you love me...
It all points to being love struck,
But I'm scared to trust you,
To love you back,
To be open with you in a way I never have with anyone before....
You promise that you'll never leave me,
You promise that you'll love me forever,
You promise that you'll help me through anything,
But you know,
And I know,
That you have a tendency of breaking your promises...
