Please don't cry.
You gave your wings
So he could fly.
Yet ungrateful -
He flew away,
You begged him stay.
He speaks his words
And storms through life
He's given up
And given in,
As his worlds
Spins around him.
No matter what
You yell and scream
He sees you only
As a dream,
For he knows
That if he wakes
His ebbing faith
May crack and break,
And even though
You care for him
He's hated you
Since the beginning.
At least, he claims
That that is true,
But really he
Just misses you.
He is scared
To face belief
And love, because
For all his grief
He can't admit
That through his life-
Through all the years
Of (im)mortal strife-
He has felt guilt
And joy and pain,
And aches for you
To call his name
In a way that
Shows you will
Forgive him and
Save him from Hell;
For long ago-
When he stood tall-
He feared he'd Fall.

On the ground lay bloody feathers
A war that tore a family apart
heavenly being you fell too far.
the hands that carved your wings strikes you down
why such hate for these beings that your brothers protect?
is it because they bleed and kill in your father's name?
Sitting in a forsaken palace your hate grows,
for jealousy consumes even the most pure of heart
why does your face twist from pain and anger?
You were once beautiful as the sun itself.
But now in this hot paradise of evil you rot and turn cold
Beautiful creature look how far you've fallen,
deceitful lies become your soul and murder fill your blackened eyes
Devils and demons surround your burning throne.
Your darkest day has hold at last
King of a new heaven you punish crimes of life
Hear their pleas for mercy as you rip the flesh from bone
This is your punishment as well.
Never wanted to truly leave your sky filled home
Your crying can be heard by the humans you hate
Never dieing is the rotting beast that you've become

Beautiful on the outside,
Broken to the core -
Stand up, talk straight!
Don't say anymore.
He no longer prays
For he no longer cares.
Wanted or unwanted;
You'll never see him there.
The dullness of the moment
Has finally got to him.
His never-ending story
Has nowhere to begin.
And that gateway to heaven?
He's convinced he's seen it:
Claims his mind and his body
From the heart of the pit.
Secretly TogetherBehind closed doors we fall in each other's arms,Secretly Together4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Like finding consolation in trust of our dreams.
But only in evenings,
When all the thorns have been shed away.
And comes the steady glow of the moon reflecting in your eyes,
The steady warmth I can feel glowing from your skin.
However when you blink,
The world seems to waver at its brink of life.
Still nothing seems close to describing this moment of us together,
Just another of the many we will probably forget.
But like the millions of love stories left unread,
It's as beautiful as any love could be tonight.

Ghostly revelation now begun,
Smell the fires of burning glory,
A third testament written with a twisted story.
Oh can you hear the angels sing?
Their shrieks of pain from fiery winds,
And can you hear the demons cry,
Lights from heaven now blinds their eyes.
The hands of the lord are not so forgiving,
To weak to break this sinful living,
The wars of ages still raging on,
In a world where peace does not belong,
With hell on earth and fire in sky,
Lay down your weapons and watch life die..

Feel the love in the back of my mind.
It's all I can do to will it to last forever,
The fleeting moments when I feel there's only one heart of us together.
And as we held each other skin to skin,
Touching your delicate hand over my heart,
I wonder just how close you can feel,
Of the millions of little reasons I love you.
Because I Miss YouI fell asleep last night with your letters by my side.Because I Miss You4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
There must have been a hundred pages,
Scented with the love I've been dreaming of every day.
So it is true that I read all of them before sleep sometimes,
Just once in a little while,
Slowly like the way I long to caress your lips.
And the softness of your touch haunts my every dream,
Like this longing I have of you,
Burning ever so precariously in this moment of my heart.

Through the sky
On frostbitten wings,
The blissful days
When his brother would sing.
On distant lullabies
He wishes to forget.
All of his losses
Tangle in the melody
But were they worth it?
He shamelessly begs,
Not God, but the stars
For just one more chance.
But his pleas go unanswered
For he's lost all hope
In this everlasting dance.

On the wall
Who is the thinnest
One of all
I know it's not me
I'm just too fat
Long and tall
Who is the skinniest
One of all
Stand up straight
Suck in your gut
Then I may not hate
Clear and bright
Please don't watch
As I starve tonight
Disgusting and lifeless
Without another guess
Don't show me
Bent over, wishing
For what I can't be
I'm stuck in this body
With food to fear
Broken and shattered
Don't stare at me
With this body battered
With blood running
Down my curled fist
Stupid mirror, you had it coming!
Building Confidence As an ArtistBuilding Confidence as an ArtistBuilding Confidence As an Artist3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
It can be difficult for a beginning artist to be confident in your skill and in yourself. Self confidence is an important part of being an artist- and indeed; a human in general. There are tons of steps you can take toward being a confident artist with all the skill and knowledge of a pro.
1: Start Simple.
starting simple can be hard for someone with big dreams but let's face it; nothing is a worse letdown than trying to start on a piece too complicated for your skill level. It may seem degrading, but trust me, no good artist got where they are without working on the basics first. the sooner you realise this, the sooner you will improve by getting the basics down.
2: Practice when ever you have time, but make it fun.
Okay, I know video games or cartoons might be another passion of yours, but set those aside for 30 minutes to an hour every day to practice. Practicing seems tedious to most, but if you make it a game or a challenge for yourself it can beco

Erika made a wide yawn as she stepped headed down the stairs, Sarah having changed her diaper before she left for the day. The little girl was already fully dressed save for her shoes and heading in the direction of the kitchen for some breakfast.
What she wasn't expecting though, was her mother sitting at the table looking rather solumn. Just beside her on the suface was Erika's favorite backpack, which appeared full to bursting. Diapers, bottles, packs of food, and changes of clothes were all peeking out of various pockets at the girl, and her sleeping bag was tied coiled to the top.
"Umm..." More befuddled by her mother's serious stance then her backpack being ready for what looked like a month-long camping trip, Erika asked, "Uh... Mom what-"
"Erika, it's time for you to go."
..... Did she miss something? thought Erika, baffled. Had that perfume done something she didn't know about? "Ti-Time to go?"
"That's right. Now come here..." Picking up the backpack and stepping toward her da
Padded Pool DayIt was two months since Dan had gotten his packet of diapers. He wasn't going to forget how he was forced to use his diaper for the first time by the laxative he unexpectedly ate. Yet despite that he enjoyed using it, the warm squishy mess was strangely nice and enjoyable. Dan wasn't going to soil his back side again unless he was busy with something and home alone so his parents wouldn't be able to smell the diaper. He also wanted to do it out of no control meaning he would eat some food and a laxative.Padded Pool Day2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"I'd thought that at first, but that's not it. I never forget my associates." The Master held up his hand, newspaper inside it, "Dead center, right behind the old man."
The "Old Man" in question was Dr. Barrick, a 60-year-old man in a white lab coat standing with the white shape of a hospital looming behind him in the background. He was holding a pair of comically-large scissors and cutting the ribbon for the building, gathered on all sides by his smiling, adoring family. As the Master had pointed out, Frannie was just behind him, her hair much longer than it had been before, and looking to still be in high school.
"Franila Barrick..." The Master had a smile on his face that made even her uneasy. "I wonder if her dear old dad told her about me. If he even still thinks about me..."
"I don't understand..." The nurse re-read the article, asking, "

The wind gave a quick whip to Blaine's black hair. It was a cool Halloween eve as he made his way to the TF Cafe', dressed in his surprisingly convincing Revolver Ocelot costume. He at one point considered shaving his goatee for the costume but eventually dismissed the thought, but no matter. He loved Halloween, and this one was going to be especially enjoyable. Entering the TF Cafe', he took a seat and waited for the others to arrive, adjusting his glasses.
"Blaine, is that you?" Turning quickly, Blaine saw Eli, his fellow cafe' worker, dressed in a pink cheerleader costume with a large 'AB!' on the front, her diaper poking out from underneath and her shiny purple hair in matching pink ribbons.
"Oh, hey, Eli. Anyone else here?" "Nope, not yet." she said taking a seat next to him. "Oh wait! Zay-La's here!" she said hurrying off. Blaine huffed in amusement. Eli was such a jittery girl. If Zay was here though... Zay-La was a very powerful witch and had a macabre sense of humor, often TGi

The cloudy skies roared over head as Sarafina guilded her son and daughter to the boaderlines of the Pridelands. The two cubs walked in front of her while she stayed behind, scanning the area for danger. Nala was in the lead, with Mheetu huddling close to her as he always did.
"What about Aunt Nuru?"
"She'll be fine," Sarafina replied to her daughter, "She's seducing your father as a distraction just so we can escape and find help."
Unexpectedly, she stopped in her paw prints, looking around and listening.
The two stopped as well once they noticed their mother had frozen in her place.
"W-what is it, M-Mother?" Mheetu asked, bright blue eyes filled with fear.
"I hear something."
"I don't hear anything," Nala said, skeptical, and tried continuing their path.
Suddenly, she heard it, too- the distant cackling of hyenas. While the sound was far enough for them not to get caught quickly, it was still a sign that they were headed in the lions' direction. Mheetu heard the laughter, tucking his
