I had never been to a convention of any type, so going to Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA) was a prospect that had me anxious. Even more nerve-wreaking was the fact that I dared to cosplay. I had my costume in my backpack as I walked across the bridge that connected Cumberland Mall to the Cobb Galleria.
I passed by so many cosplayers that talked lively about how excited they were to be there. I was too, although, it made me a bit bummed that I was by myself. I went to the Renaissance Waverly hotel for check in, then halfway out of nervousness and halfway out of practicality I went to the nearby bathrooms to change into my costume. There was a tight schedule of places I wanted to go and panels I wanted to see so I could not afford to waste a single moment.
I found a free stall and opened my backpack. On top was the package from MarioCosplayMaker85, the Shy Guy mask I commissioned from him. The package was sealed with his large emblem, a watercolor image of a winking bearded man with a

There is no abortion,
In the world of maybe
No one cares about skin,
Or if youre fat or thin.
In the world of maybe
No one tells lies,
But believes in truth.
No one is foolish,
But all are wise.
In the world of maybe
There are no judgments.
There is no prejudice.
There is no hate.
Theres only accomplishments.
But this is reality.
And the world of Maybe doesnt exist.

The FaultThese guilty thoughts won’t disappearThe Fault3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They seem to crush my mind
Dark whispers feeding into fear
That creeps up from behind
The sickness seeps from you to me
It claws inside my heart
A raging storm of misery
That rips us both apart
It’s not as bad as it may seem
Although I tend to shade what’s true
Reality twists to a dream
My mind becomes askew
I take this blame to hold
Though it may not be my own
This fiery joy has since gone cold
As your disease has grown
I wish that I could take it all
And deal with it instead
If only guilt’s enchanting call
Would cease inside my head
This voice that is my own
It breathes compulsive lies
If only sooner you had known
You’d be your own demise.
I can’t accept all that is real
I can’t accept this now
I can’t quite figure how I feel
Until then, I’ll learn how.
If I blinkA blink ago I was sitting on the playgroundIf I blink3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
My sunny red hair pulled into two little pigtails
With the ribbons I had begged my mother to tie into my hair
Because I didn't know how to tie a bow yet
A blink ago I was hiding behind my mother's leg
My first time experiencing something new
A brand new world, a school of new people
But it was then, when I peeked around her knee
When my big brown eyes caught sight of my first love
A blink ago I was on the playground again
When my first love told me that he liked me
I ran away screaming "Gross!"
Because I still believed boys had cooties
A blink ago
he held my hand for the first time
And a blink later
he kissed me cheek
A blink ago I was in a hallway
Trying not to be trampled by the giants around me
Suddenly aware I was nothing but a speck
Aware that everyone wasn't each other's best friend
A blink ago I walked the hall with my first boyfriend
Followed by the curses of the witches and dragons behind us
Gripping to that

hard as stone
carved by hands
flesh and bone
sails set high
off the shore line
into the night
Crew is vast
young and old
and weathered souls
Waves grow rough
clouds roll in
out of nowhere
the storm begins
the captain proclaims
adrift at sea
men cling to life
all gone but three
They float for days
and land on shore
but none dare speak
Lost at sea
their spirits broke
on the sand
they leave a note
There they lay
starved of food
dead in a pile
of cherry wood
GuitarmanSee that man who knows his tunesGuitarman3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Look at him play and listen as he croons
From morning 'till evening he stands alone
Not even his voice shows a wavering tone
When people pass by, ignoring this man
I can't help but think, "Will he ever be done?"
His face shows no change, he keeps playing
Meaning every word and sound he's singing
Tomorrow comes but it isn't any better
From what I see, it might even be sadder
How can I look at this man of no hope?
When all he really wants to do is to cope

"Thanks for helping me move all this stuff, Twilight," Pinkie Pie said, looking over the boxes Twilight levitated out of the attic and into her bedroom.
"You're welcome, Pinkie. What is all this?" Twilight asked. She looked from one box to the next, some filled with toys, others with old flattened balloons and party favors and one with what appeared to be old long stale baked goods.
"My childhood! I've saved loads of stuff and I brought it all with me when I moved here to Sugarcube Corner. Ooh, lookie!" She held up a rock from a box Twilight was levitating.
The box seemed to collapse under its own weight; rocks and papers and various items fell to the floor.
"That was the first pile of rocks I ever moved!" she said with delight, gathering them up and placing them in an orderly pile.

You wander in the woods
Wondering what's there
The sound of a branch
Breaking fills the air
You feel the hair on your
Neck stand as you turn
Someone was there, but
No one stands there now
You turn to the side
And see a shadowed figure

cant express my feelings I hate to confess
I want to be true, so the lesson that is learnt
To make sure no one else will ever get themselffs burnt.
I cry for a second I need the release
to give my soul comfort and give my mind peace
but as soon as I cry my emotions are incomplete
I want to be free of the painful life ,wounds so deep
To tell the lie that it is all god planned
but in doing so I would have to lie and be damned
Not to turn us free just into hot white salty sand
What faith do we have thats not second hand.

bleeding upon a blade of rusted steel
The mood of a rose ascends beyond ether
caressing souls in skies hoary
From the pitch of solitude she appears,
dark hair soaking upon winds quiver
(violin weeping in the dew of nocturnal sunrise)
As the moon whispers in twilight's fall
my thoughts swirl into a halo of numb reverie
Entranced in the gloaming of her love
dripping within the lotus of her serenade
Beset in eyes of jade,
drowning in sensual delight
Seduced in a gothic sky
Deepest gaze unleashed into my soul;
she weaves a spell of turquoise feather
her violin brushes my skin in dreamy hues
Evanescent in spectral shards of solemn rains
my thoughts swoon in burning juniper
Servant to the epitome of her will
basking in the shadows of her mind
kissed in the aura of sweet sorrow;
untold love begins to flow
Embroidered in the ballet of night's fall
violins seethe in star-clustered valleys
like a burning choir of lonely spirits
My thirst blushes in a sea

Taken aback, never have I been so ashamed...
And lo by the brethren of my very faith!
Bestow upon them your grace,
sweet Heavens above,
For they realize not
the ignorance of their arrogance.
Forgive them my Lord, as I cannot...
Many attempts have I made
To make amends...
Yet they continue to abase and abash
Those whom can truly claim witness
to your infinite truth.
Their judgment should come from me not,
for I wish them to make their way
to the shores of the ocean of their making...
where they may drown within their asininity,
to which their ways now lead them,
Moths to a frenzied flame.
I fear I must now express
My views of us, your flock.
As I have so boldly expressed them
to my mistaken kin,
with only a hint of lended ears...
We are flawed O'Lord!
But of course, I mean no insult!
As I hold absolution to your greatest plan!
Yet I feel I must speak up,
And let my confessions pour out,
over my vile human tongue...
And I will do so out of faith...
These words, Father,

De pronto, noté cómo la energía cesaba en mí. Mis poderes se retraían al tiempo que un pensamiento me atravesaba: “Pero, ¿qué he hecho?”
Miré a mi alrededor. No solo estaba rodeada por un palacio de hielo, sino que se estaba desmoronando… y había acorralado a dos hombres que tan solo habían luchado por sus vidas. Había estado a punto de matar a personas.
Retraje mis manos con violencia, asustada. Confiaba en que, de ocultar mis manos, mi poder desapareciera o, al menos, perdiera potencia. Pero, por supuesto, no era así. De algún modo, no había forma de separarme de él. Éramos uno. Había nacido con él. Ni siquiera podía decir que viniese de algún sitio en concreto. Si había alguna explicación más o menos lógica para ello

Let the crimson flames engulf the grass
Engulf the ambient cicadas and flickering fireflies
Submerse the sounds that have always held true
Flood the earth in a canopy of fire
The budding life will thank you later
Allow the flames to flow wildly
And embed the heat into the flesh of Mother Earth
Curse the earth with a passionate dirge
Of misty-mountain cinders and ash
The lava will flow from eye sockets
Of such mystical and pure rath
Or sit quietly and soak up the ocean
Cremate said strife in the pit of your eye
And raise your hands skyward
To feed off the sun’s radiant glow

Thru silvery mists I wandered, invoking spirits
Skyclad, spellbound in the poetry of the wind;
where shamans roam, lone and dreaming
— Serpents whispering in the wilderness of soul:
"seek you me... fall thee unto the light of darkness"
And I peered, lusting, deep into twilight-feasting
Forest spectres poured worlds upon my breath;
like plumes of incandescent shadows caressing
Rising in awakened visions and creation foretold
Covet I, the ether within — the primordial dark
Swirling in a fever of supernatural alchemy,
unto the endless sea of thyself — Lumen Naturae
Worlds braided into one when I closed my eyes
Tides of consciousness gardened rivers gleaming
Deserts of gold and ashes swept across my lips
I am but a man, save flickering tongue dreaming
Among the solace of trees I salivate and ponder,
basking in the songs of nocturnal civilizations ...

You have always been good a shielding your feelings. You were a stubborn girl ever since you were born and nothing has changed since then. When you started school at age five, you were stricken with anguish over being torn from your parents. Granted you got to go home everyday, you still sat by yourself and didn't talk to anyone. That was when you met Kiku Honda.
Kiku was shy himself, but was completely caring. He was a little on the short side, dark-haired with deep brown eyes that evoked a lot of soul. He convinced you to come out of your shell despite your stubborn tendencies. There wasn't anyway you could say no to him. You believed he knew that and took advantage of you when he could.
You were now a senior in high school, ready to graduate any day. Kiku and yourself had friends now for over twelve years, a time which seemed like an eternity. Over these long years, you and Kiku had faced many troubled times. You lost your house and he offered you a place to stay. His par

"Take my hand and you shall find,
more than just a peaceful mind."
"No," she said and cast a stone
"I am not ocean borne"
"You always lie, but never see,

The sea came in like a raging beast
"Now I shall have you as a feast,"
"I cannot lie, I am the sea,

The girl could not yell, she could not fight,

A piece of me will forever be left behind."
"Very well, you are mine,

The girl was never seen again,
not by woman, child or even men.
