but what can you say?
Nothing can help her.
The pain won't go away.
But she would've stopped,
you could've said no.
That's what she wanted,
someone to say don't go.
That someone wanted her,
or at least would try.
That someone would grieve
if she were to die.
But you just stared,
nodding your head,
and she realized the truth
with a feeling of dread.
No one wanted her.
No one cared.
Not even you,
with the the love you shared.
So she said good-bye,
and you watched her leave.
She may have had the rope,
but now you can't breathe.

that has been hewn and hacked
from its original pure form
into something someone found useful.
I was screwed tight together
with fixtures, fights and fittings
by so-called master craftsmen,
who wanted me to be firm,
who wanted my artificial endurance.
Men who wanted my knots undone
and for me to hold them up,
but I am a chair, and you are a table.
You have told me of the days
when seventy percent of you
was forcefully ripped out
leaving a splintered hollow behind.
I know how abrasive people
rubbed you up the wrong way
with sand paper to keep you quiet,
and with words to keep you down.
Plain men with plained minds
that have been stroked to the quick
and left only with the core
of their brutal carver instincts.
I know how you were made, table.
I am five pieces nailed together
With sticky tape for good measure.
You are one whole still, somehow
and when I need you, you are stable
and your legs are thicker than mine,
run faster and bear more pressure

You Make Me FlyA sharp wind blew across my face, cutting me like a knife. My messy black hair flew backwards as I walked into the wind. I would have much preferred to be walking with the wind, but it was Friday and I just wanted to get home. Besides, it gave me the feeling of doing something different. I was going against the wind, and I was going against everyone else's instincts. My little brother Mikey had chosen to take the bus home to save himself the windy commute. He was probably sick of losing his hats. He was down to his last gray hat and he wanted to keep it for his remaining four years of high school. This however was my last year. All the more reason I wanted to get home.You Make Me Fly7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"So take the bus Gerard, it'll be quicker," Mikey had said to me during lunch that day when I told him how I planned to get home. The bell rang signaling the end of lunch and I stood up to get away from my brother's skepticism.

Honey,This was horrible. What was I meant to do? I just wanted to give this up now. I mean why wont she just leave me alone? She completely wrecked my sixteenth birthday and is now wrecking my sleep and my thoughts. All I can think of is that I really want to go out and get drunk or even high. Ive only ever got high once and I hated it but I remember the feeling of forgetfulness and relish the fact that I could feel that once again. I know this seems weird because drinking and drugs are Gerards things. Not mine but you would be shocked at what geeks like me get up to when we need to escape the real world. I started pacing in my room trying to think of what to do. I have to tell Gerard what upset me and he will not be impressed. At all. I walked pass my mirror and took a look at my reflection. It was something I hated. I was lanky with mouse brown hair and nerdy glasses. I had huge teeth. I sometimes wished I would look like Gerard.

I Loved A GirlI loved a girl – she smelled like August melancholy,I Loved A Girl1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
she carried the scent of festival emotions,
tempered by the midnight flames
and fireflies' glow.
I loved a girl – her hair, the gentle hue of embers,
reflected dancing candlelight,
while in her eyes, as brown as mahogany,
I discovered tiny galaxies,
but most importantly – I saw my smile.
I loved a girl – I sensed her heartbeat,
playing to the rhythm of my breath.
Her every word,
imprinted tender cherry blossoms,
onto my soul.
I loved a girl – her lips tasted like morning air
cool against my heavy forehead,
her skin, softer than satin threads,
played games with the waning moonbeams -
its gravity, I could not resist, like the Sun,
cannot escape the zenith, on Summer solstice.
I loved a girl – she made me happy,
and sadly - I love her still.

The legend of the Silvertear lakeOnce upon a time, in years beyond our own, a dragon of the Timekeepers flight fell in love with a mortal woman. Her hair was the colour of sunlight, her lips like a rose in bloom, and her eyes rivalled the midnight sky.The legend of the Silvertear lake3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But their love could not be, for no dragon may love a mortal, and no mortal will ever live long enough to share a dragons life.
Yet, they met in secret under the weeping willows, pledging their undying love under the moon, and for just a few hours, he made time stand still.
As years passed by and mortality withered her beauty like the leaves of autumn, the dragon decided to stop time eternally so his love would never die. He travelled through dreams, through time, through life itself to find the means to end all times. But his brethren had learned of his love, and of his madness, and they ended his flight, chaining him to the bonds of the earth. Cast out from his flight he sought refuge with his loved one and lived by her side, eternally young, watching as she withered

Head is spinning.
You run faster and faster,
but you know she's winning.
As she closes the distance
her voice becomes clear,
whispering your secrets,
and your darkest of fears.
Your energy is waning,
and she's only getting faster,
and you know without a question,
this will end in disaster,
Suddenly there's a grip on your arm,
It's stubborn and strong.
It's all over now.
It's all going wrong.

And feel my blood pump
Slowly the life flows
Slipping out of me
The wound burns
I'm not going to stop it
It won't ever heal
Because my pain can't stop
The blood is so red
My coppery bliss
I ask myself what is this
So many scars on me
Fresh cuts alike
I scream in frustration
In silent agony
No one can hear
I call out to my goddess
Ask for help to end my pain
Just like before
Knowing none is coming
Just like before
The big finale
The big end
I scream out in pain
My blood is running cold
Accompanying my letter
I write my last message
In my own blood on the wall
So much meaning
Conveyed in four simple small words
Written blood red
"I still love you"

From which I want to hide
But some things are hard to take
Sometimes I have to break
If you see me start to fade away
Know I have had too much for today
Too many reminders of what we left behind
A string I can't unwind
I try to kill it all away
The feelings left of that day
My mind still replays it
The actors are faceless
They try to describe the impossible
A promise left unfulfilled
It was the right thing to do
But still it hurts anew
Who knew it would come to this
A choice so painful cannot exist
The best thing that could be done
Was letting go of the one you love
I wish them happiness
A never ending eternal bliss
I guess this is what true love is
Wishing for their happiness

I remember that night as if it were only yesterday .
I went walking to an abandoned park I played in as a child, to enjoy the night air and memories. The park always brought me great joy, until the state built the freeway. Now its nothing more than a graveyard of play sets, a reminder of days gone by, but one that I still love to visit. This night seemed different though. I seemed drawn there, as if called by some unseen observer . That feeling grew stronger as I walked amongst the slides and swings, as though my summoner was watching me from the shadows, the moon providing a spotlight on me for his pleasure.
I spun around, looking for the direction to which the word came, but found none. It was windy, so I figured it was just the wind blowing through abandoned play sets.
Thats not the wind, I thought. Someone was calling to this Jake. Someone who needed help, and badly it seemed. I sear

It was a jolly, fateful day for a young, fresh eighteen year old named Scarlet. The brown haired girl was full of joy; she had just turned 18 last week. To celebrate, she had gone to get a tattoo; something she had always wanted.
Gleefully returning to her apartment, the naïve teenager looked at the backs of her hands; engraved on each of them was a yellow, five pointed star. The stars were perfectly centered on her hands. These twos tattoos were all Scarlet could afford; simple shapes. She was hardly disappointed though, since she believed they suited her well and werent ugly like some tattoos shed seen.
Chuckling at her accomplishment that day, the young girl stepped into her apartment and headed for her bedroom. She stopped in front of a full body mirror to check on her appearance. Her eyes were as soft a green as ever and her brown hair went down slightly passed her shoulders. The hair was striped at edges with pink highlights she had a

Hungry men, women and children huddled together while the sounds of bombardment and artillery strikes echoed through a once proud city, now brought to brink of utter ruin, its tall buildings and proud statues reduced to rubble by the Germans. Smoke filled the sky and barely any sunlight could pass through it. Warsaw was a city under siege, a battlefield where the desire for freedom fought against the wrath of bloody conquerors.
Whatever hope the Poles might have felt when they first took up arms against the hated Nazi war machine had all but disappeared: the Allies weren't coming to help. The accursed Soviets had halted their own advance once they reached the outer limits of Warsaw, allowing the Germans to avenge themselves upon the insurrection. The Polish resistance was near total colla

The quiet was suddenly broken by a loud blood-curdling scream coming from a room inside the house. "Amanda! Honey, are you alright?", Alice's dad asked as he busted through Amanda's room. "Yeah, dad. Just a nightmare.", she said while still shaking from the aftermath of her dream. "Alright, good.

Full Time SlaveIn the upstairs bedroom of the house, a girl lay comfortably on a queen-sized bed. She wore a pink jumpsuit, a collar and a set of light blue slipper-like shoes. A black hood covered her head along with a black set of armbinders behind her and some ankle cuffs for her feet. A blue ballgag was stuffed in her mouth and earplugs in her ears under the hood, cutting her off from the world. She lay there contently until a tanned woman with long blond hair and deep green eyes entered the room. Walking over to her, she undid the hood's lock and pulled it off, revealing a twenty year old medium black hair and brown eyes.Full Time Slave5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

He took a deep breath in and then let it out slowly.
He'd had a good day today, spending his entire time out on the beach, enjoying the sun, listen to the waves. He was pretty sure he'd even dozed off a few times.
Work had been pressing him harder and harder lately, and he was glad for some time to himself. The day had passed too quickly as far as he was concerned and the sun was already below the horizon.
He took another deep breath, letting it out quickly this time, and then stretching his arms out.
He didn't want to leave and he certainly didn't want to have to go back to work tomorrow.
Leaning back on his arms, he stared out into the water, enjoying his last few minutes of freedom, before he had to go back home.
A small breeze blew in his face, and although it felt nice, he could feel a chill on the edges of it, and seeing as he was only wearing a T-shirt and shorts, he knew it was going to get cold pretty fast now the sun was gone.
