The ViolinClosing her eyesThe Violin8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Drawing the bow across the string
As the notes begin to ring
A deep forlorn note
Sorrowful and low
Echoes from the violin
Passionate and slow
She tells her sad story
On the wistful winds
As a grim lament
For her lover lost begins
The melody is bitter sweet
Full of passion and pain
Reaching its crescendo
In the fiery refrain
This is how she has learned
to make it through the night
Telling her story to the stars
Reading the notes by moonlight
Sooo GothSitting, thinking in my room;Sooo Goth11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Fantasizing about my doom.
Swimming in the pain I drink -
I'm soo goth; or so I think.
Middle class, unbroken home,
Loving family, but I'm all alone.
Childhood filled with toys and parks,
But that's all gone; now I'm dark.
I hate happy, pink and soft -
I'm so black, yes I'm soo goth.
All my hopes and dreams discard -
They can't take a life this hard.
Straight A student, perfect teeth,
Beautiful outside, but not beneath.
Perfect's not good enough you see
When deep down you're goth like me.
I know hurt and I know pain,
I know torment in my brain.
I can't find solace that I seek -
Lost my boyfriend of this week.
That damage is too much to fight.
(I know I'm really depressed...right?)
I seem beset with a curse -
But hold on, it just gets worse.
At my home I'm all alone;
I've been grounded from my phone.
No Yahoo, AIM, or MSN -
Solitude's killed me from within.
So now my nails are painted black.
There is no hope; no going back.
Painting your pain just isn't fun
That One Day at the Park: BrusnopSome people are so unlucky that they find someone that they think they can be close to, only to have said person disappear. It might not be the persons fault, but it may make the person think that something went wrong, that they jumped the gun. That probably isn't the case, but it happens all the time, and that's how it went with me.That One Day at the Park: Brusnop2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Let me tell you about it.
I was ten when it happened. As cheesy as it sounds to say that I felt an instant friendship with the boy I met at the park, it was true. At school I was really unpopular and struggled to find friends, so when I met someone who did seem to like me, well I was relieved.
My parents had forced me to go to the park, thinking that maybe I would meet someone. When we got there, my parents sat down on a bench to read and I went to the swings on the opposite side of the park. That way they wouldn't be able to see me being my normal, anti-social self.
After I had been swinging for about half an hour, a ginger haired boy came and joined me a

*Vienna, Austria - 1816*
*It's a cold winter eve on the lonely streets. One such structure, a disheveled looking building right in the middle of the town, stands out amongst the town with it's eerie appearance. Through the frost-covered windows, we enter a dimly lit room, illuminated by the pale moon light. Walking across the light, a shadowy figure looms through the darkness. Pacing the floor is at most an unusual old man with a look of depression on his face. Course one could hardly read his expression, as most of his face was covered by his long white hair. Lifting his hair back reveals an eye patch over his right eye, though how that happened he'd never tell and nobody knew. One would never guess that such an old fellow like this one is a famous clock-maker and magician, especially at the prime of his youth. This was the man known by many as Herr Drosselmeyer. On this evening, Drosselmeyer was up and about putting the finishing touch on his latest creation: A Toy Castle, the bigges

It was a bright sunny day in the heart of Equestria. The ponies of Ponyville were out and about at their every day duties and activities. Inside Sugarcube Corner, the workers were busy creating the finest baked goods in the village. The pony named Cup Cake was walking through the shop checking on all her employees.
"These treats are looking good everypony. Keep up the good work!" she encouraged them. But nearby, some ponies were having issues.
One pony was busy making a delectable little cupcake on her worktable when she ran out of icing in her tube. She turned around to reach for a new one and then turned back only to find her cupcake gone.
"What the ? Hey, Pinkie Pie!!" she said turning to the adorable pink pony with icing and cake mix smeared all over her face.

"You got a long way before you could pull a trick like that on me again."
Now it was Kairi's turn to smile. "Actually, the trick is on you!"
Sora frowned and looked down. As he back-flipped, he did not see where he was landing and saw he was on a skateboard. Kairi who was holding her Key-blade whispered, "Aeroga!"
The skateboard moved by itself with Sora on it.

AccidentIt was a beautiful spring morning. The perfect day for spring cleaning all around the cabaret. Francoeur was dusting in the dressing room. Humming La Seine to himself while polishing the piano, he backed into the small table, knocking it over.

Francoeur gasped in horror recognizing the vase, now in peices. It was one that was very important to Lucille. There was a knock on the door, "Everything alright in here Monsieur Francoeur?" It was Lucille's Aunt Carlotta. Francoeur opened the door a crack and gave the elder woman a smile.
"Yes, everything's fine. Just bumped into a table while cleaning the piano."
Carlotta seemed to accept his answer. "Alrigt dear, just be careful." She headed down the hall towards the kitchen.
Francoeur sighed in relief and shut the door. He looked down at the remains of the vase that he broke, wondering what he should do. He ha
Wiccan WishWiccan WishWiccan Wish9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If I could make one wish,
And know that it would come true
I'd wish the whole world wiccan
So you can be a witch too.
I think wiccans get the best in life,
We also get the worst
But thats because the Christians
Rained upon our faith a curse
Common misconceptions of our faith include
Bloodletting, putting spells on men,
Riding broomsticks, eating children
And consorting with Satan
But on the inside, it's not like that,
Nothing like that at all
We're all a part of an intricate web,
A web thats called the world
We stand in circles and call to us
Energy to love and heal
We thank the lord and lady
For what we get out of this deal
We celebrate all of nature
In an intimate way,
Marking all our sabbats with
The dark of night and light of day
We see life as a circle
A never ending cycle
In death we see new beginning
Not the start of trouble
If the whole world was wiccan
More trees would be standing
Greed would almost be nonexistent
And less wars would be starting

Francoeur was not at fault for thisbut time had become a cruel, wicked thing, taking from him everything he held dear. An epitome, he supposeda monster didn't deserve such luxuries as friendship, or heaven forbid, love.
The cabaret was silent, as it always was nowadays, and Francoeur had yet to become accustomed to the stillness. The club was empty, thick layers of dust and grime coating most everything in sight, and a majority of the chairs that had been stacked on top of the tables had toppled over in senseless heaps on the stained and faded carpet. The stage, once glittering with the soft glow of a spotlight, was dark, deep scratches running across the mahogany, the light fixtures ripped from their standings. The voices that had once sung upon it had long been silenced. Deep, garnet curtains that had once hung from the sides in vivid pride were now tattered and torn, hanging loosely and partially hid the demo

He took off his brown jacket and dove under the water to grab her. He knew why was basically risking his life to help a siren. That she could sing at any moment and eat him alive but he didn't care. He grabbed her arm but she fought back with her powerful strength of a killer whale. He thought cleverly and started to play dumb by gently banging his head on the cave rock. He did it perfectly, looking like she made him hit it and he sank to the bottom of the tank. Annabeth rolled her eyes, "Oh, great," she thought. She picked him up by his back and swam to the tile surface. He was enjoying the feeling of her caring him in water. His arm touched her tail, so powerful, so full of muscle. She plopped him on the tile surface and laid over him with the top of her body above him. She watched him and remembered the pure of heart feeling she had when she first touched him. She slowly moved her hand to his chest to feel 'it' once more.

On any normal day, the board would be displaying fifteen names, those of every possible avatar in Sugar Rush preparing to compete for the top nine slots. But today was far from normal.

The 13 Wiccan PrinciplesThe 13 Wiccan PrinciplesThe 13 Wiccan Principles7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
The following set of thirteen principles was
adopted by the Council of American Witches, in April, 1974.
1: We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarters and Cross Quarters.
2: We recognize that our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment and consciousness within an evolutionary concept.
3: We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary it is sometimes called supernatural, but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all.
4: We conceive of the Creative Power in the universe as manifesting through polarity ~as masculine and feminine~ and that this same Creative Power lies in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and femin
