The Fable of the Stray FoxThe Fable of the Stray FoxThe Fable of the Stray Fox3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Just like people the animals hold their own societies, but whilst we elect to live in houses within or outside of cities the animals choose to remain outside all together. Take the fox, perhaps the most cunning and certainly among the dangerous of all animals to roam the woods. The foxes reigned proud in the centre of the woods, kings and queens among the animals there, feared and respected by all who wasn't a fox.
However like the societies of man, the foxes were capable of being unjust and cruel. In the coven of the foxes was born a youngling, he wasn't a runt nor was he a high ranking male but yet he was spurned by all whom was a fox. He wasn't sure why, he didn't feel too different from all the others. He walked like they did and acted like they did yet no matter what his endeavours it only got him shame from his parents and hatred from the coven. So the young fox grew to be alone.
The years and the foxes were unkind to the young fox, he learned to

It's a funny thing being alone, I mean fully alone. Absolutely no-one or nothing by your side, nothing to distract, nothing at all.
All your left with is the sound of your heart beat, your breath, your very mind
Sometimes, the loneliness can be quite peaceful, give you some time to think. But other times, it can be a deadly killer, can suck every happiness out of your soul.
I've been lonely my whole life. I don't feel anything anymore, not the quiet peacefulness, not the painful killer.
Just nothing, I'm numb, I can't feel at all.
From when I was young, I had my family ripped apart from me. My own mother killed in front of my very eyes, from that moment onwards a sudden and strange verge of anger swarmed around me. I killed someone for the very first time in my life, I killed the man who killed my mother.
It's a strange feeling when you've just murdered, you feel a pounding of guilt, adrenaline through your veins, but the same time, it's the best feeling y
Tired Of This PlaceEach scar is because of you.Tired Of This Place3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You're the one to make my blood bloom.
The empty pain I feel inside,
foreshadows my deep demise.
I'm sick of crying,
I'm sorry for trying.
I should have ended when I was born,
then maybe no heart would be torn.
I wish my breath did not start,
and maybe even my heart.
Growing up is the hard part,
I really didn't want to start.
I wish it was easy to say goodbye,
so then maybe I could die.

Undone by love, stars in disguise
Bejewled fair face, only thou fit
A blossom of hope that never wilts
Bound by spell only thee I think of
Angel thou I love by the name Above
Indeed crystalline thine ethereal face
Like a trinket shaped with Lord's grace
Or the falling benevolent winter snow
Valor wings thy hast heaven aglow
Enchanting thy lips take my sight
Young and tantalized thy beloved heart
One that shudders but never falls apart
Untying my hands Angel show me light.
SometimesI hate it when I am depressedSometimes3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hate it when I want to fuck up everything
I hate it when I am longing for the grave
I hate it when I want to disappear
Not because I am unhappy
But because I don't want you to know that I am
Not because I am lonely
But because I don't want you to miss me
Why does it have to be like this?
Why do you care?
Why does it hurt so much?
Why do I care?
Sometimes I wish I was never born
Sometimes I wish I will live forever
Sometimes I wish to love
And sometimes to be loved in return
Sometimes I just want to live
I just don't
ScarsThe mind forgetsScars3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But the heart remembers
The criss-crossing scars
Show like stars
The streaming tears
And haunting fears
Of the slain
The cries of those
Who never screamed
Praying for life
Without a sound
The pleas for help
The wishes that chance
The pain might dull
And the mind forget
But the heart
Will always remember
Three Hail MarysThree Hail Marys3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
When the phone rings, try not to let it catch you empty handed. No one calls to say, "Father, things are going great. Just called to say hello." No one calls to say, "How are you?" They call to say, "Father, I am at the end of my rope" or "Father, you have to help me" or "Father, the walk in front of the church really needs shoveling." When they wake you at six AM, hissing, "there is no heat for choir practice!", do not remind them that spirits warm as well as fire. Do not remind them that seminary did not include a course in furnace maintenance. Say three Hail Marys, flip the red switch, and hope the heat turns on. Remember that you are a symbol of sacrifice. Chastity, poverty, obedience. These are your three vows. Try not to wear them like badges. Occasionally, they will call to say, "Father, let me tell you what was wrong with your last sermon." At these times, remember that this is His blood, poured out for the forgiveness of sin
No Love Like ObsessionI have a lasting obsessionNo Love Like Obsession4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am always searching
Around every corner
Around every bend
Through the day
Through the night
I try my best to keep hope
Pray, and pray
"Maybe someday" is all I can say
I just want to know the feeling
To me it's more than just a word you say
Far more than just an emotion
It is the one thing that can become your everything
Don't you dare try it if your heart is easily scared
You would never make it through the day if you let the worse of it get the best of you
If you are lucky enough to have it you won't ever want to let it go
Let it slip through fingers and the pain will never seem to end
There is no promises that you will find the real version your first time around
This is my obsession
The one thing I can't live without
I haven't found my own yet
It's the reason why I'm always searching
I'll never give up until I have my own
Something tells me my heart will tell when I find it
Right there on the spot I'll know
Without a doubt I'll finally be truly happy

Reminding me of you
Withering in time
But always fixed in my flesh

Part of my being
They've made me who I am now
Through trying experiences

Think of youwhat a mistake
I'm stronger, smarter
That mistake will not be made
All over again
I've moved on from you

of downtown, I can turn my head
and see my reflection

In the windows that stand guard
against the smoke

I can see myself,

I can see myself,
waiting to grow old
and learning how to remember.

At one time I thought so
But never before had I felt
The earth cry with me
For so long I had missed
Not only its tears of sorrow
But Its hands reaching out as if to say
"I'm with you"
All it took was a moment
The breeze carrying messages
I so long had missed
The wind whips like a sigh
Thunder, a shout of joy
It knows it's not alone
I'm not alone
You're not alone
Demon InsideWill you love the demonDemon Inside3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
inside me? I know there is a darkness
in my soul that sinks down into the abyss,
and my heart beats callously.
I cannot pretend to be an angel,
I don't aspire for Sainthood,
I never have presumed that I was good,
and never sought to be better than this.
Will you tremble at the sight of me?
Revile within the truth of me,
do I repulse you so?
Or might you glimpse something
beyond all the insanity,
can you see past the nightmares
of my dreams?
Understand I am not seeking
to be saved, I don't want to be led
astray from my twisted path.
Don't come to me if you believe
you can purify my soul,
but I want your willingness
to dare to enter the labyrinth with me.
We could learn to destroy each
other beautifully, we will not live
in petty lies, and falsetto hopes.
Our lives may derail in time,
but they will be entirely ours,
the wreckage of truth which
refuses to be denied.
Do you have enough
faith in yourself to risk
all your safety ground,
for the perilous position

I'll rip myself open
Pick the feathers from my rib cage
Let my blood pour out,
Till all colour has drained from my face
I'll tear my skin back and you'll see
You're just like me
I'll lay my skeleton next to yours
And we lie equally
I'll tear my skin back

You flow through my veins like a most vile poison.
Yet are still sweeter than the finest chocolate.
Oh my apathy.
You consume my whole a rabid beast running rampant.
But still to me nothing more than a loyal dog.
Oh my apathy.
You are my sin my corruption polluting my soul.
Still I long for your blissful ignorance.
Oh my apathy.
You grow within me becoming me stealing me.
Nevertheless I welcome you my numbing apathy.

To remind me there's a purpose
And salvation in pain.
But there's not always a rainbow
After 40 days of rain.
Hell will rise up
Again and again.
God let me drown
With the sin in my heart,
Though I was baptized in fire,
And my ashes blown apart.
I starved for Lent in front of Noah's ark.
Knock on dogwood,
Just one more fresh start.
I sang out with the angels
And I knelt when I prayed,
But the LORD came to me in a dream and said,
"I command you, make Isaac bleed red.
Be not of the world
And listen instead."
And the more that I listened,
The more that I feared,
For God's voice sounded like
The serpents I hear.
As He twisted the verses I once held so dear,
The halos on his prophets
As I wandered through the Valley of Death,
The Tree of Knowledge
Called my name,
And I saw Eve's body, enlightened and maimed,
Warning me not to wind up the same,
But my stomach growled
And I swallowed my shame.
I bit the apple and plunged into Pur

Over come with nostalgia of days I had laid to rest,
Found in dark places where no light has shone,
I shrink in fear of memories despite all of my best
Attempts to forget as to find relief
From the things welling up from underneath,
Thoughts of long fights we had over the phone
Our words like darts viciously thrown
Oh what happened to those days
when we each confessed our own
worried not with saving face
And all was truth to be known?
Where are you now Dearest Friend. how distant we've grown
How far from you I feel, here, writing alone

I stand up to the pain, left over from yesterday.
I look at the sky, thinking of history already past.
I stare into nothing, I find questions in the empty space.
The answer left a bad taste.
I hold onto my ways, not letting go of myself.
I resent the fame, pouring over the fake.
I look to the end, thinking it'd be easier than the start.
I find answers, not meant for me and too true for you.
That old pain became new.
You look to me, you ask too much
and say too little.
I've opened up, I've shut you out
and now I wake to the day,
late from a dream that kept me down.
I burned you and a flame can't lie.
Your influence extinguished,
I can lay this nightmare down to die.

Trapped between the walls of the lens,
Lives a little spirit-man
Whose life can never end.
He watches the world around him
And takes in all that he sees;
The knowledge of a thousand springs,
Imprinted in his memory.
And every now and then
He fills a feather with information,
And drops it in the human world
With the hope and realization
That if one day all his knowledge,
Was passed down through the trees
And taught to all earth's people,
He could finally be free.
Leap of FaithRelease the fear inside your heartLeap of Faith3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Live like you're still alive
When life has pushed you to the edge
Sometimes you have to dive
Conquer the voices in your head
The arguing will never cease
There are always reasons to stay still
Self imprisonment is not peace
Take a moment to collect yourself
But don't let your thoughts chain you down
Embrace your fate with a leap of faith
Or in your misery you will drown
You cannot know just how you'll land
But staying still may not be safer
One can waste away upon a cliff
So please don't let your courage waver
Being afraid is just part of life
Don't let fear claim the best of you
Taking a chance might get you hurt
Though that same chance can get you through

I wish they would die

Now I'm a shell

Why would you do that

Why would you want to

I don't understand.
Why you would place your hand

I can barely breathe

Ich Liebe Dich auch, mein Schuler -GerIta-Rain thundered down outside the café, rattling the windows as it hit them. The sky was gloomy and grey, perfectly matching the atmosphere inside the building. The lights were dim, the walls and furniture a deep, oak brown, giving the entire café a miserable aura, which reflected in the emptiness of it. There were only 3 people in the café; a young barista, cleaning tea cups, and hoping for at least a little more business in this dreadful weather; a lone student who sat at the back, brightly coloured headphones covering his ears, studying, while bobbing his head to the sound of Iron Maiden, the faint buzz of which could be heard throughout the silent café. The last person was a man of Aryan descent, sitting alone at a table at the front of the café, next to the window. He occasionally glanced up at the clock on the wall, taking sips of his coffee between those glances, but otherwise, his amethyst eyes were fixated on the street outside.
