Xion's Other PromiseXion's Other Promise5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can't remember it anymore.
Something important to me.
The river of memories clotted,
Memories connected together -
If any should leak out of his protective sleep,
What havoc would it cause? Would it injure anyone's heart?
Would it confuse anyone?
Make her cry?
A crushing sadness for a heart I do not have -
My heart that's missing still feels like it's breaking.
I only want to stay together,
With the two of you, who mean so much to me.
You want me to return back with you,
To everyone else in Organization XIII.
They search for your hearts, not knowing where they are exactly
But only knowing fully this overwhelming sense of yearning, longing,
To find them and be whole.
But I look out into the distance, past the crashing waves along the shore,
Towards the setting sun on the horizon of a bleeding sky.
I hear a boy's name and speak of it from my lips, and when I close my eyes I see
A girl with a face like mine, with eyes like mine, with hair the same as mine.

Black coats are worn
This is where Number XIV was born
Alone and silent
Things could be worse
Number XIII noticed her first
Salty yet sweet
First one she had
She realized they weren't all that bad
Warm summer sunsets
Three friends together
Xion knew it couldn't last forever
Not real at all
Look at his leer
XIV starts to realize her fear
Reprogrammed by I
Now on the clock tower
Xion uses all of XIII's power
A fall, defeat
Salt tears run
No more days underneath the sun
Roxas, not ready!
Fight Xemnas never.
Even though he'll forget forever
Dark storm clouds
We all know who Xion misses
Vampires heartacheI awake in the night;Vampires heartache8 years ago in Open More Like This
I can no longer sleep.
I don't see myself in mirrors;
I see somebody else.
I am alone.
I am dead.
The red stripes on white flesh
Keep me somewhat Sane.
I stare at the ceiling;
It is as cold and dead as I am.
The pain burns within;
as my life slowly fades away.

Forgotten memories of you fade into the back of my mind. I find it hard remembering your face. I consulted Namine about the girl with black hair. She said it'd be hard remembering you but you were once important to me.
Why is it when I'm having my happiest moments, A scattered fragment of your existance flashs into my vision? I know you were very important to me. Otherwise, why would I have thoughts of you? I wonder if you're within my heart as you are with Sora's.
But most of all I wonder where you are.
Why did you have to go?
To fade away?
And why is it that when I eat sea salt ice cream now, I only taste the salt?

Okay, so writing. Something you are interested in? Well,
lets get to grips with just some of the basics of great writing. These tips
will transform your attitude from "How can I fill this page?" into "How can
I fill this page with good quality writing?"
Part One: Initial Idea
Why is it that finding an idea can be so hard?
Why does everyone else have the power to come up with amazing ideas, and what
are you left with? Nothing... Well, to you, that may be what it seems
like, but I'm sure if you dig deep enough, you don't really lack in
ideas, you just have a hard time bringing them to the surface. Here
are some ways to bring out that buried inspiration:
Base some ideas on real life events
Its probably the easiest way to write, you may have experienced what you are
writing about, this helps the mind describe the situation, it also makes it
sound much more realistic.
Use inspiration from other pieces of writing

Teníamos una vida tranquila, la gente conocía y respetaba a mi familia. En cuanto a mi . sinceramente los traía de cabeza. Mis padres se volcaron en darme una buena educación, en cambio yo prefería aprender otro tipo de cosas la vida de una señorita

Ten Commandments of Writing1. Have an original plot.Ten Commandments of Writing3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
If every book was the same, we'd get bored with them pretty quick. Variety is what gives that special spice. Try to come up with a story that's entirely your own. If your work is based off another work, however loosely, make sure you use your own style. Don't just repeat what someone else has already written. Nobody likes a copycat, and you could face an unpleasant lawsuit that way.
2. Have a good title.
If you want people to read your book, you'll need a title that will catch their eye. Make it exciting, but keep it brief, too. Don't make your title so long that it wears the reader down. Try to stay within the limit of ten words. If you have trouble inventing a title, go through your story and decide what the main theme is, what it is in that story that really stands out.
3. Make your characters as believable as possible.
The characters are what make the story a story. You learn about them, sympathize with them, and hate them.

Celestia says that I'm a good ruler,
Glad I've fooled her, glad I've fooled her...
I take a walk around my empty palace,

My thoughts grow heavy and I look to the ground,
Why was I crowned? Why was I crowned...?
And I find it kind of somber, I find I disapprove,
The friends that I have made are all now bowed down at my hoof,
I don't know what to tell them, I don't know what to say,

Can't fit inside, cannot reside...
Without the others I must face the unknowns,
They're just headstones, they're just headstones...
And I find it kind of somber, I find I disapprove,

How to make a basic wolf quadHow to make a basic wolf quad3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
THE BACILLARY TUTORIAL ON A QUAD SUIT... (very basic)
to make the whole body look realistic and accurate you will need the use of padding
look at the back legs... they have a back bend in them this is easily achieved by adding knee and thigh padding on the front of your leg and a triangle on the back to create the back bend,
with the head you need an extended neck, wolves have long necks so to achieve this effect you can use the bike helmet method were you stick foam on a bike helmet, view out mouth.
for the stilts use pvc pieing (guttering) with wooden handles, make them long enough so your back is strait and your legs are strait, or bent to a comfortable position.
with foam paws.

Awareness.She writes such lovely poemsAwareness.4 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But nobody really cares
She hides them all the time
To avoid the judging stares
She wrote one yesterday
About a boy who said he loved her
But to her own dismay
She caught him with another
She wrote one about school
And the words painted on her locker
“No one likes you, stupid bitch.
You’re lucky I’m at soccer.”
She wrote about her parents
And how she wished they were together
But she knows that won’t ever happen
And forgetting’s probably better
Yes, she writes such lovely poems
But there’s so much more to this
See, her pencil is a razor
And the paper is her wrist.
