The Legendary Kirby- PrologueBefore there was a Dreamland, there was first only One Dream.The Legendary Kirby- Prologue2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It wasn’t any special kind of dream, but rather the One that manifested as its own in a reality far apart from ours. It spread out through where stars, galaxies, and planets would eventually form, and became a protector. The One watched over its young universe with its eternal guidance and wisdom, promoting a life of peace and relaxation for those who dwelled in its celestial presence.
The One, of course, was destined to share the ethereal space with its contrasting persona, the Zero.
The Zero was a violent force that had risen up from creation with the One, as the One could never hope to exist without its counterpart. However, the Zero grew upset at the equality of the two beings. He wanted to end his neutral state and have total domination over their reality. He was prepared to put his own life at risk if it meant supreme control over the cosmic space.
There was a violent struggle. The ether was reshaped over and ove

"It's time, child." The master said as he moved his hands in a fluid motion. Water balled up in front of him and he flowed his hand movements flawlessly as the ball quickly whipped out into an intricate pattern before Devin.
Devin was a part of the Water Nation and had been waiting for ages to finally be able to water bend. He'd shown spirit and perseverance during his young age and continued to practice it every day. However, today was the day for him to get actual training from a water bender himself and use his powers properly and effectively.
"It's not how the water moves," The master said as he gently settled the water down onto the ice, solidifying back into the hard surface, "it's how the water moves you." He sat down in a meditated state and explained. "Water is a dangerous, but helpful tool. To less of it, and life cannot survive; too much of it, and you will die yourself. Moderation is key as to how water is used."

It claims to be a champion of the people.
Here to support the common good,
To get everyone on its side.
But it has its missiles aimed at us,
At our cultural centers.
It has laser sights aimed at Google,
And tanks pointed at Facebook.
It has a bulls-eye on Youtube
And a stealth bomber over Twitter.
Torpedoes are locked on Tumblr
And C4s are strapped to ProBoards.
They also have nukes ready to strike
The heart of this country,
The Constitution, Freedom of speech.
Ready to go up in flames
Thanks to the folks behind SOPA.

Although you're miles away,
I plan to be with you someday.
The pain without you here,

That you're the one for me,
I love you and all your beauty.
The distance surely makes me blue,
but I'd do anything to be with you.
Believe me I will try,
to help you when you cry.
Your love is all I need,
together we can succeed.
We will show the world and make them see,
what has become of you and me.
Yet, even when you want to hide,
you still want me by your side.

For every blackened soul mourns their own innocence.
At first, I welcomed you, drawn by your pain.
There’s really no good story without suffering.
But I didn’t expect you to stick around
You crept into my mind ever so silently, never making a sound.
Something as pure as you shouldn’t be walking
In the dark depths that is my heart.
It’s been so long since it was last used
And I find myself slightly amused
Seeing how oblivious you are to the danger.
Like a kite, you fly so high never looking down
But I’m slowly sinking and I will take you down with me
You left a rope tied around my black heart and you will never again be free.
Once you’re grounded I’ll find a way to stain your innocent mind
To kill your light because you shine so bright it hurts.
Don’t you understand I don’t know how to love you this way,
I’m too jealous of your wings so I will cut them away

Love Beyond the WindowWhen I was young, I believed in fairy tales.Love Beyond the Window2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I believed that if your heart willed it,
That love could overcome anything.
That one day, two lovers could always be together.
But those were simple lies I think...
After all, how does one reach across a window;
Reach across a screen...
To hold someone on the other side,
Before they slip through your fingers.
Like a lonely dance between air and water,
I can only stand on the surface of the lake,
And see her smiling on the other side.
Sometimes, I would draw pictures on the surface;
These thin useless arms of mine scrawling tiny doodles,
And she would smile and reply to each one:
Including a heart, for 'I love you'...
And each time I would feel,
As though I could soar through any distance,
As though I could run a hundred miles.
If only so I could see you;
If only because I missed you...
But enough I say...
Enough of this life
Why Do You Hate Me?Why Do You Hate Me?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I lay here on this cold winter's night
I begin to wonder what I have done wrong
That you could become so angered enough
To bash my head with glass
And kick me till my body
Was covered with bruises and blood
The blood that would never stop running
All I have to ask is why?
Why did you want to harm me so bad?
I had loved you with all of my heart
Because you were my master
And all I ever wanted to do was please you
My heart is full of pain
When I think of my beloved sister
We were sleeping so soundly together
When you grabbed her by the neck
And dragged her out the door
Her helpless cries pierced my ears
The ones that were caused
When you set her fur aflame
And let her burn away to ashes
Now I lay here wondering why?
Why did you have to torture her to death?
She loved you as much as I did
Because you were her master
And she never tried to disobey
My body is growing so cold and numb
I can feel my time is now coming to an end

The sun had nearly reached its highest point. With difficulty I had made the yearlings retreat into the bush behind me. They were chirping busily, unable to contain themselves. To be honest, I could hardly contain myself. Their heads peeked out of the foliage and five pair of sparkling green eyes looked up to the sky expectantly.
When I had returned yesterday, they had been downcast and scared, as I had never left them alone for such a long time. But my happiness was contagious, and before long they were bouncing around, yelling "Father is coming, father is coming." I had called them to me and said "come, listen to my heart, all of you. I so love your father, my heart goes boom-ti-boom, so very fast." One after another they had placed their little heads against my chest, beaming, giggling. "And you smell so nice,

He hadn't said anything aloud since he said 'it 's cool ' after Sam had apologized, not even when she ran off a few seconds later, red faced and possibly crying. He didn't know what to say go her anyway. He didn't even know what to think. But one thought kept crossing his mind involuntarily: 'Damn, that was amazing!' Out of the kisses he had had, none of them had ever made him feel quite like this. His kiss with Valerie was nothing but a peck. It truly meant nothing when he found out she was only using him. The first kiss with Sam was pretty good but it was awkward and it also meant nothing. It was just to get the dilemma of never being kissed out of the way. His kisses with Carly were nothing too.
