There are those we can find with the skin
Ones that are easily seen by the naked eye
And those we can find only by the soul within
The ceramic cup is smooth and glossy
A honey scent sways from steaming tea
Those that drink with pinky out feel classy
Tea feels warm and like a welcomed embrace
When I touch your face
When I grasp your hands
I feel the sweet kindness inside
I know where the concern stands
But when you touch my own face
When my hands would be enveloped by your own
Can you feel the scars inside?
Can you feel the pain that brings me down?
The ceramic cup became rough and worn
A scent is gone and steam faded cold
The one that drank lost their class
Tea having disappeared in days of old

(Sonic) Guess it's up to me to get all those bad vibes out of you again. Maybe you should use the positive side of the emeralds for once.
(Knuckles) It can't be! Wasn't Chaos supposed to be sealed back inside the Master Emerald? If he's here then what's become of Angel Island?!
(Amy) Hey, take it easy! From what I remember Tikal wanted you to mellow out and take care of the Chao.
(Akira) One strike will disperse this opponent, yet it will always be back for more. This may be my toughest challenge yet!
(Sarah) Does this drip even say anything? Even the Durals showed more enthusiasm than this.
(Jacky) Come on ya big drip! I thought you could put up a fight way better than that!
(Nights) Even I can't help but wonder what kind of nightmares this strange visitor would have.
(Reala) All that rage will leave you trapped within your own nightmar

There's no way I'm going to lose to you guys! I'm the best there is and the fastest thing alive! Nothing stands up to the Legendary Wind Rider!
Heh, guess you're not so slow after all. Fine then, I guess I can let *partner name* hang around just as long as they don't fall behind.
Even if someone's faster on the ground, they can't come close when I'm in the air! Even the likes of Sonic are a joke compared to me!
(vs Sonic) Hah! Guess I finally got to settle things with you here! Now the world will see who's truly the fastest!
(vs Knuckles) Heh, I guess I can see why Storm had so much trouble against you, but you're still a slowpoke compared to me!
(vs Amy) This girl can't even keep up at all! I'm better off leaving Wave and Storm to handle one of that hedgehog's hanger-ons.
(vs Akira) Who the heck cares about strength?! In my world, all that truly matters is speed!
(vs Sarah) You're even slower than the other Bryant! I can't believe I expecte

Do you hear that whistle? Be sure to always associate it with the one who just beat you.
I'm living as I wish now. Not all robots are obligated to follow orders. That makes me less of a machine and more an individual.
I'll only take this alliance all the way to the end *partner name*. Once this job's done, I'll need to part ways with you.
(vs Sonic) You're not very smart ramming yourself into my shield like that. You should find yourself a better method of attack.
(vs Knuckles) I'll admit that you've got something to fight for, but you're sacrificing your freedom to look over that emerald.
(vs Amy) Maybe you need to give Sonic some time alone. He seems like someone who cherishes his time alone.
(vs Akira) Just what do you plan to do once you have true power? It won't do you much good if you have nothing to fight for.
(vs Sarah) There's no longer any need for you to hesitate. You're not anyone's slave any more.

Why I am a BRONYWhy I am a BRONY2 years ago in Letters More Like This
This is a message to all brony/pony haters.
I'm noticing a lot of brony hate around, which is predictable. Every fandom that gets mega-popular will have the self-proclaimed 'rebels' who decide to hate the fandom AND the fan base based on a just few unsavory fans.
This narrative is a means of explaining a few things that many brony haters may have not realized, or overlooked. It is NOT a device to 'convert' those who don't like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is NOT to put down pony haters, or people who dislike bronies. Not every person can like every fandom. We are all entitled to our own likes and dislikes, it's what makes us human. This is merely an explanation of why and how I became a brony, and why it's terribly ignorant to hate a fandom because of a portion of fans. But first of all...
I saw someone the other day proclaiming that bronies are going to 'ruin the show' for children in the future, when those children grow up and 'realize that thei
PlaygroundPlayground2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All that autumn her ghost haunted the playground;
no wisping phantom, but strident bits and pieces
clamoring for attention - a pair of black patent
leather shoes waiting expectantly by the teeter-totter.
And Sister Teresa had to pry red woolen mittens
off the jungle gym every morning.
Jimmy Boyle kept seeing her sweater at the swings,
its green wooly arms daring him to go higher
and trying to tag him "it".
And her best friend, Jenny Black
could see the flash of her pigtails
throwing copper across the kickball field
where recess waited to swallow them.
The toys vanished from the sandbox every evening
leaving nothing but a soft trail of disappointment
in their wake -
their accusations of neglect
and longing crouched under the
maple trees, swarming with the bees.
But winter proved a discordant grave -
the protest of frozen ground
an errant melody in the schoolyard
and her shoes kept shrinking
and stumbled down the slide,
leaving a thick crust of frost
like somber tracks that said good-bye
Whispers of the MadWhispers of the Mad:Whispers of the Mad2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your lips remain painted with the scars of torment
Carved so as to split with every word of speech
The glass that slices through your softened flesh
Bears the marking we know as 'Vinashuka'
And now he lies beneath the falling sand
Drowning in a world that is sinking away
Though his feet will seek the stability of ground
He finds himself caught by 'Vinashuka'
A disturbing word that rings hollow at best
For it carries the tone of a tainted solitude
A heart that has been corrupted by physical pain
Can only scream 'Vinashuka!'
How does a man know when he has gone insane?
To descend into a world where logic is naught
A moon that carries the colour of blood
Shall paint my skin with 'Vinashuka'
I have lost all sense of meaning in this place
There is no where else for my soul to flee
Caught within the whispers of delusory madness
I can only repeat Vinashuka...

An artistAn artist2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Staring at a blank paper
Is an artist's worst nightmare.
The artist is the shaper,
Their thoughts somewhere up in the air.
They are searching for inspiration,
Sometimes they are even searching the skies.
It takes a lot of concentration,
But you can always see the passion burning in their eyes.
Being an artist does not always mean you're creative.
It just means that you want to create something,
And never want to give up.

AnonymousI am the girl who hides between moth eaten paper backsAnonymous2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And slips into bookstores and devours leather bound spines
I am chloroform lips bitten down, red and rosy
Ink stained finger tips that fold book pages between my pupils
I'm the girl who drowns herself in coffee and cough drops
While remaining curled between Tennyson and Steinbeck
Wasting days wondering why grass is green
And how it can be greener for others and not I
Then I realized its all artificial food colouring
And polystyrene picket fences
Sticky notes yellowed at the edges reminding myself how to smile
I've pasted them on my skin in makeshift paper Mache armour
But like all mangled words I will be thrown inside a wastebasket
Saved for a rainy day

Our Numb Tears
Something deep within me / Is longing for relief
A haunting aura around me / Reminding me of the grief
Scratching at the core of my soul / Hope is swallowed by a black hole
Locked in the center of my heart / All that is left is the traumatized part
Laugh, smile, blink, and focus. You just need to act as normal as possible.
You cannot let this pain get the best of you. Don't do anything irresponsible.
The damage you do to yourself also effects everyone else, so don't let it become irreversible.
You're being too hard on yourself, no one is perfect in life, you're only human, you're not invincible!
Shock waves of guilt enter my system / While a deathly peace is in the distance
And aftershocks of regret strike me down / I can't show that I'm hurt when they're around
Tremors of anxiety / Infest my entire body

don't back down.
You can win
if you only try.
Sword in one hand,
shield in another,
he stands over his charge
ready to die.
He was the person
that you told everything to.
The one you went crying to.
The one who never ran out of hugs.
The one who soaked up your tears.
The one who you carried around everywhere.
The one who always slept by your side.
He's your teddy bear.
He guards over you at night,
because while you might not believe,
the monsters are still there.
They come at night
when you don't expect it
to take what they want.
you don't run to him anymore
your teddy bear remembers.
He remembers the endless love.
He remembers everything.
Every night he stands
sword in one hand,
shield in another,
ready to fight.
All for the person
who loves him the most.

Although we enter hand by hand, we are soon in a single filed formation due to the narrow halls of this maze. At first, there are only advanced animatronics, making it seem not as bad as the gruesome screams portray it as. Suddenly, the lights turn off, making us scream of course.
Instantly, a dim light flashes on a door, a door that leads to a bridge crossing over a hall of illusions. There are spiraling lights that surround the bridge, leading to the next obstacle, a clown with a fake machete. Since I cannot stand clowns, we follow the bridge in the order of Brian, Sarah, Moly, Leah, Matt, Catherine, then me.
As we proceed, the clown at the end starts to chuckle. However, the clown's laugh is not of one paid
