It stirred, steel tendons and synthetic muscles twanging like sad music in the cold silent dark. In turn, the dark hissed back, a noiseless sound from the furthest depths of blackest space. The thing with the tendons of steel and the skinless hide glistening with oil twitched and spasmed and trembled, the mess of electric synapses it called a mind confused by the notion of life.
It felt. And what it felt confused it, for it had never felt before and it did not know what it was to feel. It felt cold and hot at the same time, two extremes of temperature that at a point became inseparable with each other. It felt and heard and saw a world that it did not understand. For it had never lived before now.
The mechanical pump at the center of its being fluttered uncertainly, a chaotic interruption of a carefully timed rhythm: Thump flutter thump click whiiiine. The hissing noiseless dark writhed in its corners of blackest black and waited.

Donald's alarm clocks always had to be the sturdiest things available, for he was prone to breaking them when he tried to turn the alarm off. He never blamed himself for these accidents, though certainly there had to be better methods than slamming a fist down on it. His argument was that nobody liked mornings, and so his early anger was justified. Lately, he felt more justified than ever, and this morning in particular there was no trace of guilt when he destroyed the phone underneath his hand. As his groggy eyes adjusted to the flashing numbers of time, he hoped as he hoped every morning that the past month was just some horrid dream. Wouldn't that have been fantastic?
A month without that bratty demon invading his and Minnie's life, eating them out of house and home, and constantly harassing little Minnie. Yet every morning as he went to make breakfast, he'd find the demon already sitting at his table, in his chair, ch

You can't see me
You can't tell me who I want to be
What can I do
To convince you
That I am all you'll ever need?
And I start to understand
And I smile in my sleep
I watch you Mr. Death
I know what you want
Dying is your greatest
You taunt me with life
I smile knowing
You can't get me this time
So forgive the misgivings
I've tried so hard to find you
I even see you in my dreams
Your face turned blurry and hued
And I waved goodbye to Mr. Death
As I breathed my last breath
As I smile in my sleep

I don't know this feeling
Or how to describe it
I feel my remorse changing
I'm becoming this
Rip this rage
From my heart
Open the cage
Let me out
Break Break Break
Through the walls
Of my mind
I don't know
What I'm doing
Losing the control
Over my emotions
Take Take Take
Away the fault
It's not mine
It's been so long
Since I've felt anger
Usually I'm not headstrong
But I couldn't keep it together
Forsake Forsake Forsake
The whole world
Leave it behind
Oh how the gentle have fallen
But this is what I get
Wasted all of this time trying
Nothing left to defend
Hope is conquered

Nobody was looking at the dark and gabled silhouette on the hill overlooking the town at exactly twenty-two minutes to twelve that Saturday night. It was lucky that nobody had, or more than one of the townsfolk would have added a new chapter to the peculiar ghost story that had insidiously circulated throughout the town over the decades, permeating the life of each and every inhabitant. For one brief instant, every single light in the place had flared on, crowning the whole hill with a blaze of glory.
The man with the scissors for hands had indeed discovered the electricity junction box.
Edward was lying flat on his back, hair alight with blue sparks, eyes rolling back in his head under the pale eyelids, almost out of their sockets. A faint curl of smoke drifted lazily up from the scorched black leather rags that swathed the prone form, and a smell of burning plastic hung in the air. It wasn't the first time and it certain

SkinVerden looked out of the window and sighed. It was a summer's day, complete with fresh grass, singing birds and rainbows. It was a good day, a perfect day; or it would be if the weather was real, and the window for that matter. It was just an illusion, a curtain, if he pushed it aside, it would only reveal the damp wall behind it. He grimaced; it had taken him almost a year to make all the windows on request of the King who was catering to the whims of the Higher Ups. The snobs who couldn't stand the fact that they were surround by grey brick and the green slime that seemed to trickle down from the ceiling. Not that there was anything good to see if the windows were real, just the occasional dead tree, miles of wasteland and the eternal black sky.Skin5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The wonder of YouThe wonder of You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mere words can not explain the wonder that is you
How you make me feel just by being there
I love your eyes, the green of a forest dappled by the light of your smile
Your smile which makes the most amazing sunrise pale in comparison to nothingness
Your laugh which is like the tinkling of silver bells by the choirs of Heaven
Your voice which is the purest music to listen to, golden on my ears
Your elegant, feminine hands with their slender perfect fingers which I long to hold
The entirety of you, the perfection I behold
My breath catches in my throat just looking at you, how utterly beautiful you are
My heart feels like a bird caught up in a cage too small for it, fluttering wildly and skipping beats just beholding you
I feel faint and light headed just being around you
You captivate my every sense
You thrill my very being
You enchant all of me with the wonder that is you
Your love for me knows no bounds
Your words speak right into my heart, burning themselves into the fabric of my soul

It was in the afternoon, and you were coming home from school. You walked all the way from school to your place but reached home kind of late because you took your time walking to relax yourself. As you reached your house, you say a loud 'I'm home!' as you went through the doors and stepped onto the cream tiles. You were wondering why no one answered your call. You shook it off but when you looked at the sitting room, you saw your father, a man and woman probably the same age as your parents and a younger man maybe around your age or older.
Soon your mother came walking from the kitchen heading towards the sitting room and was bringing tea for the guests. Before she could even reach the sitting room, you blocked her way and pulled her to an area a bit further from the sitting room preventing the guests from noticing you two and then you say quietly, "Mom, who are those people?"

"Oh Zero, how am I going to ask her?"
The pumpkin king of Halloween Town, Jack Skellington, was nervously pacing his tower, being watched by a ghostly hound with a jack o lantern nose named Zero. Jack was dressed in his usual black suit with white pinstripes with a white shirt underneath, complete with a black bat bowtie. The only thing different was that he was wearing a big black top hat on his head, and a black rose tucked in his pinstripe jacket. He held a tiny grey box in his boney hand.
"What if she says no?" Jack asked Zero as he continued to pace. He finally stopped pacing and collapsed into his electric chair. Zero floated up to him and barked twice. Jack stroked the hound's head, relaxing slightly.
"What am I doing?" he thought aloud, "I'm the pumpkin king, I don't get scared."
Jack reached into his jacket and pulled out a pocket watch. When he read the time, his eye sockets nearly doubled in size.
