Mechanical DeathEven mechanical things can live.Mechanical Death2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
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.

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

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

If its in us or on the walls
Insanity, some hate,
Others will take pride in that state
Insanity it will consume the world,
Insanity it makes you see colors and swirls
Insanity it never leaves,
Insanity it makes you see
See the world for what it is for,
You may see black and grey but there is more
It lets you feel love,
It lets you fly high above
It lets you believe,
Insanity... it lets you see.
ADHD I have heard several people tell me that ADHD is not a real medical condition. Some doctors and psychiatrists even argue about whether it is a legitimate disorder or not.ADHD3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
ADHD stands for "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder." Some persons affected basically cannot pay attention, some persons can pay attention, but are hyperactive and cannot sit still, and finally, some are a combination of both. I am in the last category.
When I was 6 years old, my first-grade teacher noticed that I was very hyperactive and easily distracted. Sure, all kids are hyper and have a hard time focusing, but she said that I was the worst in the entire classroom. I was even stopping the other children from learning. My grandma told me that she said I wasn't allowed to come back until I was "cured."
I went to the doctors, and he performed some tests that I honestly can't remember. He asked questions and got people to observe my behavior. He concluded that I did in fact

The gates are open, they're flooding out
I'm a one man army, there's no doubt
These soldiers are of different shapes, sizes and color,
I use all my might, strength and power
to put up a fight.
They're strong, don't get me wrong,
This war will last very long!
I'm pushing, trying to get through,
So irritating, so confusing, so tiring! (phew!)
My brows are crossed and my mind is lost
and my body can't bare it all
my eyes go fuzzy and then i fall...
Now i'm buried underneath this rubble,
I can hear my mother scream,
"If you'd have kept your wardrobe clean,
You wouldn't have gone through all this trouble!"

Millions of years ago, nearly all life on earth became extinct due to a mass release of heat and gases such as carbon from the seabed. This resulted in killing roughly 96 percent of all living creatures on Earth and was known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum. In the present day, the most anyone has to worry about on Earth as far as extinction of the human race is concerned comes down to terrorism, war, or any international affair blunder that might cause one of the two previously mentioned scenarios. Of course, mankind's intervention and machinations are the driving source behind those problems, as well as any incidents in politics and business. The same can be said for Armageddon. At least, it can be said for the impending Armageddon that is challenging the human race's very survival.
Nearly six months ago, Earth and its inhabitants were warned about a potential doomsday scenario of semi-biblical proporti

Chapter 7 - Contact
Altiar sighed as he tossed and turned around in his bed for the fifth time tonight; no matter what he wanted, it seemed his restless mind would not allow him to sleep. Sighing softly the Arabian male slid out of bed; he was wearing practically nothing but the assassin didn't seem to mind; the curtains were drawn and it was dark in the room you could barely see the outline of the furniture the only light coming from the glow of the digital clock next to his bed told him it was 4:45am.
Altiar frowned a bit and started to pace around in his room; what was he going to do? There was no way he could face Alex, he wouldn't be able to look the man in the eye! Hell he could barely look at Dana right now without knowing that her brother was watching his every move; if he didn't know any better he'd say Alex's paranoia was rubbing off on him.
Ever since Alex kissed him he had been avoiding the other, and for good reason! He didn't know why

I stepped inside the flame!
Hoping to be forgiven for what I became!
Have I no shame?
Have I no guilt?
There's no such thing as blame
For all of the wrongs I've been dealt
Point the finger
Only at the world
Watch you band together
And witness you antagonize another
Wrapped inside of society's shadows
And little did they know
They were only born to be scapegoats
That's the harsh way to say it
It's only because the truth is filled with hatred
Bystanders just turn a blind eye
As they feed their relief with made up lies
That's all they know how to do
They're too afraid of being dragged down with you
They know what's right
But it's clouded by discriminative eyes
We're only given the gift of a last glance
A half a second of pity slips through our hands
It's all we will get

Sadness leaking overhead

Clouds are bawling endlessly
Darkness has spanned

Light is peering through the clouds

Sunlight beams through lawlessness
Raindrops still fall
Soothing this brawl
Spread across the gleaming sky
Time will end this war
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.Skin4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

He raised his head. "Case 32456 will now be heard. Will the defendant please approach the bench?"
He looked up at the motley collection sitting in the front row of the courtroom, criminals of all different kinds ranging from a twelve-foot-tall Morglich to a small, furry, tabby-striped thing of a species he didn't recognize.
No one moved.
Justice Hommel suppressed a sigh. "A case will now be heard on cumulative theft."
The little furry thing stood up, switching a long, whiplike tail with a fluffy tuft on the end. "Uh, I think that might be..." Its voice started off strong and then got small and muttering and trailed off altogether at the end, apparently losing confidence. Perhaps the speaker had realized it was volunteering to be tried in Mirentian criminal court.
"Name?" Hommel demanded.

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
The MissionThe Mission was something Rune would've liked to be informed of.The Mission2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Stew, who promised he wouldn't do anything stupid without consulting her first, made a note to himself to return to her house later, when she's calmer, and to make an effort to come through the front door, even though it scared him.
Stew's full name was Stew Mee. He was something like the clown, the jester, of the little trading town of Shinanit, where the Tooth Fairies' main market was located.
He was an odd man, reaching twenty that year and acting like a fifteen years old with behavioral problems. His most common nickname was 'Sue Me', because his name sounded very much like the phrase, and people often threatened to sue him (though that has reduced significantly as of late. People have just adjusted to his odd way and unintentionally provocative words.)
Everybody knew him, and he knew everybody. He treated everyone the same the rich, the poor, and the in between, which got him in troubles with the w
