VO - Zombie Time - Kai and Aeric oneshotHe needed to beat all of the thoughts out of his head. Right after Alice closed the door behind her, Kai grabbed his keys and sport shorts, walking out of the apartment.
"Fucking drugs " he muttered, starting up an engine of his Impala. Kai drove fast, he even made a hook, just to enjoy the speed and roaring sound of the engine. He spent two hours at the gym, beating the hell out of his punching bag. And when he thought, he's forgotten about that drugs thing, Kai returned home.
Rietz bought a pack of beer on his way back and ordered pizza, no sleep for him tonight anyway. When he was done with the first bottle, Kai reached to his bass, but his hand grabbed just empty air.
"Fuck, Aeric, again?!" he cursed, calling his friend on the phone.
"Hello ?" Aeric tried to sound serious, but it ended up with a stupid giggle.
"Where. The Fuck. Is. My. BASS?!?!" Kai shouted.
"Jeez, man! Relax! I borrowed it, no big deal!" Kai could hear noises, which Aeric was making with his bass. It did
VO - Kai x Alice storyIt was 5 am, the most boring time for a night at the bar, Kai would've gone home, but his shift lasted till 7 am. It's the time when people start falling asleep on tables and couches, drunk girls start crying and whining about their stupid boyfriends and everything becomes even more depressing.VO - Kai x Alice story3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"If I buy you a beer, will stop looking so freaking depressed?" a girl sat next to Kai, who was just staring at nothing and pretty much sleeping with his eyes opened.
"Did somebody say "beer"?" he yawned, turning to look at the unknown to him girl. She had short dip dyed hair, which looked damn bad ass turning from white to black at the ends. And that's what made Kai pay some attention to her.
"And you are ?"
"I'm Alice, nice to meet you, Kai" her eyes didn't seem to be happy seeing him at all. They had this predatory gaze as if she offered Kai to buy poison instead of beer.
"How do you uh, shit, I always forget about this stupid thing" the security guy pointed at his badge.
VO - Freaked Out - Kai oneshotWhat's good about night shifts is that they don't make you lie sleepless in your bed. You don't have to replay in your mind all of the things that have happened to you and what could have possibly been changed.VO - Freaked Out - Kai oneshot3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Kai didn't want to face it, but work is work and sometimes you have to do certain things. Like working at day time. He knew Aeric was somewhere out of town, summer had just began so he spent all of his free time riding his motorcycle. Kai though didn't feel like driving. He just felt like if he was at the helm right now, he would crash. There were too much energy in him; he felt his fingers grew numb because of muscles in Kai's arms, which were too strained. He wanted to beat, crash and destroy things. Luckily the guy knew what to do in cases like this.
Kai headed home to take his boxing gloves, too bad he left them there. Usually, there was a spare pair of gloves in his car, so that he could go to the gym anytime he needed to. But the old ones had been torn last time he was at
Last KissI see the fear inside your eyesLast Kiss4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As you fall into my arms.
You look up to the skies
Hurting from your harms.
My tears drip on your cheek
As your blood pours from your chest.
I will try not to shriek,
I will try to do my best.
Our lips softly meet,
It's our first kiss.
You taste so sweet,
But why will it end like this?
There you lay,
And now I pray,
I pray somehow.
Now you are gone,
Gone from this earth.
As dusk turns into dawn,
Life begins to lose it's worth.
Without you my love,
Life is worth nothing to me.

“Pft, It’s like 1\2 of my own record, you know I can do better” Amy took a sip of sweet liquid. The room was flooded with people: parents with their kids, who ate tons of ice-cream; couples, sharing milkshakes and waffles; groups of teenagers, talking and laughing loudly; and Amy.
“I wouldn’t mind an extra pair of hands” pointed Kev, arranging boxes full of all kinds of ice-cream.
“Wha…” started Amy, but couldn’t finish the sentence, Kevin threw an apron at her.
“Customers won’t wait!”

"Hey, Rietz! In the corner!" Katy the barmaid pointed at the corner of the bar. Yep, here it goes, drunk dudes starting a fight. "I could be one of them" thought Kai, while walking through the crowd; "security" said his t-shirt.
Two minutes later unknown to Kai guys where out of the bar. "Go suck each other dicks in some other place!" he shouted, slamming the door right under their noses. "Great job, Rietz! As always!" Katy shouted smiling, but her words sank in the noise of music and crowd.
"Then I deserve a drink!" Kai shouted back, taking a seat next to the girl.
"You're not allowed to drink at work, you know that?"
"And you're the girl who telling me this?" the guy couldn't hold back a smile.
Kai was a little boozy by the time Katy pointed at the door of the club, saying "Time to work!"
Fight after fight Kai had to kick out people from the bar, he worked there for three months already and even though the guy loved staring at almost naked girls, drink and ha
I'll Live ForeverSomber clouds will crumbleI'll Live Forever4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watch fragile tears fall from the sky
Do you hear the distant rumble
Can you feel the reason why
Years have turned to memories
Some hidden moments you still keep
Lingering moments fuel fantasies
You didn't know they cut so deep
Yeah, there's something stirring out there
Familiar warmth has never changed
Although you've told yourself you don't care
Inside you've never rearranged
Though worlds apart I've never left you
I'm still a curse locked in your heart
You can't erase the things we went through
It's what I told you at the start
Though I'm not there you know I'm watching
I'm looking with you through your eyes
Flowing through you as you're crying
You're not alone beneath tearful skies
Lay It All On meMy love is unconditionalLay It All On me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like everything I give
These arms are meant to hold you up
This heart to help you live
The life you lead is not easy
Sometimes it's filled with pain
Let my arms act like bandages
I swear I'll help you heal again
You'll never have to stand alone
Or keep things locked inside your head
I'll be the pillar you can lean upon
A soothing voice to banish dread
For you I would lay down my life
Surely your burden I can share
Please cling to me when times get tough
You know that I'll always be there
Emotion SicknessDepression creeps in like a floodEmotion Sickness4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Suddenly dams just break apart
When if feels like you can't be understood
It seems that life's falling apart
This emotion sickness digs in deep
Instead of blood you pour out tears
This pain is a secret you cannot keep
You'll be devoured by your fears
Inside it feels like you're all alone
The darkness laughs at your flickering light
Please remember you don't have fight on your own
Cling to a hot flame with all of your might
There are a few cures for this sickness inside
But the most effective of them all is love
When you're lost it makes sense to look for a guide
They'll help you more then light from above
Emotional floods chill you right to the core
Damaging thoughts blow you around like a storm
You've got to find cover when acid drops pour
Go find a flame you know can help you stay warm
Breaking OutQuestions stir in the back of my mindBreaking Out4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trails of pebbles leave mysteries to find
A collection of bandages helps me to mend
Lets just turn the page and skip to the end
The end of the longing forever repressed
A resurrection for dreams that were never confessed
Acceptance for something I've always denied
The removal of walls that I've built up inside
I've reinforced them with pain over the years
Treated them with denial to hold back the tears
They kept everything out but they trapped me within
Once I break these walls down where am I to begin?
When I flip through past pages my memories emerge
The haunting song in my head sounds just like a dirge
Should I be grieving the time that has all gone to waste?
Is it ever too late to have lost hopes replaced?
Answers bubble in the depths of my heart
If I could only understand them I'd know where to start
When you're just waking up you can't see through the haze
Breaking out of yourself feels like one giant maze
Learning To CrawlIt seems everybody wants to runLearning To Crawl3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
These days we want to have it all
Most people dash towards the finish line
I'm happy learning how to crawl
It's not that my legs aren't strong enough
Or that I just don't want to race
Life has this way of wearing me down
Sometimes I look like a disgrace
The reality is that I'm giving my best
There are times I don't want to go on
Why should I fight for every single inch
When the other runners are all long gone
This life is my obstacle course
How I get through might not look nice
So if you find yourself down on your knees
Hold strong to this bit of advice
In life the others don't need to matter
You've got your own race to worry about
Your goals and dreams will be your trophy
Those who say otherwise can get the fuck out
Lost In YouOnce upon a time I was all aloneLost In You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My spirit was wild and free
Feelings like this were still an unknown
I'd never given such a huge part of me
Now I live each day with only half of my heart
And when you're gone my whole world turns blue
Not connecting to you always tears me apart
I don't regret getting so lost in you
Your world has become such a huge piece of mine
This combination is everything I desire
There is no going back after crossing the line
Just being with you always sets me on fire
You warm me up with the sound of your voice
You'll always be enough to get me through
Every day I wake making the same old choice
Forevermore I want to be lost in you
I've found myself while pursuing your love
As my one muse you've inspired me to grow
To me you're a miracle sent down from above
Deep in my soul I've always just seemed to know

Everything is closing in
I should have known I couldn't win
But I've tried all the same
Goodbye is something I won't say
Those words are just a waste of time
Departing from you is a crime
It's something I shall never do
So when the life fades from my eyes
Don't let my soul reach for blue skies
Please keep me locked inside your heart
And when you fade I'll soar with you
If we're apart our spirits won't rest
Together we will pass this test
We'll explore the glorious afterlife
A shining world free of pain
My fading heart will beat for you
You'll feel my warmth well up inside
For you I know I've always tried
And death cannot make me stop
I'll visit you within your dreams
We'll dance in an ethereal place
You've always been my saving grace
Undying love shall wait for you
So when the life fades from my eyes
Don't let my soul reach for blue skies
Please keep me locked inside your heart
And when you fade I'll soar with you
If we're apart our spirits won'
Worth Dying ForI've come to learn that life is beautifulWorth Dying For4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That every breath is such a gift
But to protect someone precious to me
My primal instincts would all shift
To protect them I'd lay down my life
Knowing full well what lies in store
All that I am would cease to be
But I've found someone worth dying for
This fact doesn't scare me too much
Strangely enough I feel at peace
Although I've got no wish to leave this world
For her I'd welcome the release
Her life means more to me then mine
It's why I'd sacrifice myself
Even in death I'd still love her
The love between us is my wealth
This world is filled with wondrous things
Yet nothing takes more breath away
For her I'd take a bullet in the chest
So she could live another day
My Hidden RequiemI have locked away a requiemMy Hidden Requiem4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The melody flows through my veins
My little red drum thumps desperately
It can't escape musical chains
The haunting tune starts at my core
And slowly spreads like thick red blood
It paints everything the way I feel
Sometimes notes pour out like a flood
A chilling symphony plays deep inside
Behind veiled curtains of pitch black
I listen to it play in solitude
The chords will always pull me back
This hidden requiem is mine alone
I mourn each moment that slips away
An ethereal key hangs around my neck
To give to those who hear my heart play
Inside, the concert hall looks desolate
It's tattered beauty speaks much of me
Each song that plays feels so bittersweet
Someday I'll set this music free
It All Comes Out In The WashI never thought things would turn out this wayIt All Comes Out In The Wash4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They say I should have seen it coming
I'm tired of sitting here hitting replay
I'll increase the distance as I'm running
My friends say over time the slate becomes clean
They know I've got hard questions to squash
And while my situation is far from pristine
In time it all comes out in the wash
Reality hits me like a punch in the face
My god, I hope it sends her flying
Things don't look so bad as my steps I retrace
It's nice to know I won't be the one crying
Each friend is surprised that I just let it go
Honestly, I'm quite surprised myself
In sticky situations you drown or you grow
Personally, I prefer my good health
I'd never had guessed things would come to an end
If I had I'd've expected more wounds
Things don't look the same while you're on the mend
I'm unlike others trapped inside cocooons
Ordinary WorldSunset leads to sunriseOrdinary World4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The rising sun gives birth to day
It's time to live another blur
I cannot stand to live this way
My existence feels so hollow
I'm reaching for something more
This world is so ordinary
And I can't take it anymore
For once I just can't settle
My life is slowly killing me
What I crave is so extraordinary
It influences all I see
There are eyes upon my heart
And they are focused on a light
Somewhere in this ordinary world
I'll find somewhere I feel just right
All I want is to belong
I've always felt so out of place
In time I may not be alone
Maybe I'll find my saving grace
Pieces Of MeI'm a person with so much to offerPieces Of Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I'm willing to share who I am
But it seems all people want these days
Are just pieces of me
Very few want to pursue all of it
Most just want me to give them answers
To help them with their problems
Assuming that I want nothing in return
All I want is to be pursued
And sometimes I feel so guilty for this
It's almost as if it's too much
Wanting to be wanted
I just wish people would want me for me
Instead of focusing on little pieces
When will people look past what I can give
And see me for who I am?
I've got so much to share with people
Though it seems very few want any of it
Why do people only take what they need?
More often then not I want to give more
Reasons To Be MissedThis life is like a candle,Reasons To Be Missed3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So vulnerable to the wind,
All it takes is one big gust,
To snuff out all the light.
There is fire held within me,
But someday that flame will go out,
Part of me can't help but wonder,
Just what I'll leave behind.
I've gathered bonds and memories,
Perhaps what I've got will suffice,
It would sadden my soul greatly,
If I left no reasons to be missed.
Someday I want to be remembered,
After I finally leave this world,
I want to influence the living,
By living on within their memories.
Death is still a long way off,
And my flame is burning brightly,
Though I still can't help but ponder,
What I've got to leave behind.
