sending your mind
into a deep abyss.
It's the feeling that eats at you,
slow and deep; painful and empty.
I'm feeling that feeling again
and it's bringing me down,
deeper and lower.
Will I ever come out?
There goes that feeling again
and its bring me down quick.
I'm trying to find the strength to surface
but I'm being eaten alive.
As your heart pounds through your skin
the rush of blood
causes explosions everywhere.
I feared it would end this way.
I'm losing this game.
When I open my eyes

Through truth you'll get anywhere.
You're perfect the way you are they said.
You're something beautiful to share.
I remember hearing this all the time,
recollecting those words as I write this rhyme.
There was one thing that they forgot to say
which is what my mantra is here and today.
Though you may be you and the best to believe
you still need to work to be beneficial
in the lives of others and yours to achieve
anything that will not be something superficial.
People forgot to say that work is needed.
Not the normal amount that keeps you in the gray,
but mind wrenching, sweat creating, limit exceeded.
To stand out and pave your way in life today.
It's the type of work that will make you shine,
to help you stand out and remain unforgettable.
The type of work that's so difficult to define.
The kind makes those gone feel their absence regrettable.
Average work that makes you blend in with others
that gives one average recognition and reward
is the kind that I don't

There was a beautiful sunset coming then.
The sun is white hot and high.
I sat in the sand with my toes soaking in the water.
Two old men sit on a bench parallel with the outer wall of the building.
He stepped inside my lingering footprints and stopped right behind me.
My footsteps echo precious old memories against the walls after I come in.
We were alone.
I'm almost the only one there, and it makes me feel more noticed than I like.
I turned and eyed him.
Everyone stares as I walk into the elevator.
He looked down at me with a faint smirk.
Remembering keeps me from smiling.
And then he sat down at my side.
One other person comes in and stands next to me.
The lights in his eyes danced like the glow on the water.
A red light clicks on when I press the button for the tallest floor to which the elevator goes.
Minutes passed us by.
It takes only a few minutes.

It was summer, six years ago, when Minato found him and Naruto make out on the couch in front of flickering TV at Namikaze's house. Of course it led to a big fuss, his father lectured him all day and all night long, saying it was wrong for kissing your male friend, telling him that it was wrong for being homosexual. And of course Sasuke listened to him half-heartedly, he was busy with his fan, the AC in their living room was broken and it was hot like hell. But the incident took them apart for a moment, his parents forbid him to go to Naruto's house, let alone staying over.
It didn't last out though. Everything was back to normal, their parents were busy with their works. They believed that Sasuke a

Down by the Walls of Wapping, where I met a sailor gay,
Conversing with a bouncing lass, who seemed to be in pain,
Saying, William, when you go, I fear you will ne'er return again.
His hair it does in ringlets hang, his eyes as black as soles,
My happiness attend him wherever he goes,
From Tower Hill, down to Blackwall, I will wander, weep and moan,
All for my jolly sailor bold, until he does return.
My father is a merchant the truth I will now tell,
And in great London City in opulence doth dwell,
His fortune doth exceed ₤300,000 in gold,
And he frowns upon his daughter, 'cause she loves a sailor bold.
A fig for his riches, his merchandize, and gold,
True love is grafted in my heart; give me my sailor bold:
Should he return in poverty, from o'er the ocean far,
To my tender bosom, I'll fondly press my jolly tar.
My sailor is as smiling as the pleasant month of May,

"Sir, I'm right on their tail-"
"ABANDON PURSUIT!" I shouted. "Both units fall back and follow me. This is an order, not an invitation. Whoever follows the rebels instead for another second needn't bother coming back. Both units copy?"
Two confirmations drowned each other out this time. Once I saw both motorcycles fall back far enough behind the dirty Trans Am, I made a U-turn and drove for a few miles before stopping, flanked by the two riders.

He didn't feel like arguing right now. He silently crept through the kitchen and was almost up the stairs when he was caught.
"Ryeowook?" he turned around, Kyuhyun looked awful, pale and sickly. His eyes were sad and tired, his hair was messy, it was a whole new Kyuhyun. It had only been one day! How could he have changed this much within a few hours?

The sky was filled with grey wisps of dark clouds, the air crisp as it caressed her pale skin. She swayed in the breeze, her fingers cold as she watched the leaves beneath her feet, their colours golden and burnt red, touching brown and a light orange. They were broken by her steps and piled high over the muddy ground.
Her hair whipped around her face, catching on her parted lips that were a faint shade of pink. She did not reach up to remove the caught hairs, but left them to do as they pleased. Her hat was beginning to slip from her head although she did not adjust it back over her ears.
Dirt was smeared over her cream colour coat where she had tripped and a speck of blood was evident on her knee where she had scrapped her skin and broken her jeans from the fall. The tear marks down her cheeks were more prominent now in the cold as they turned to ice.
The branch creaked in the wind as spare leaves rustled on the trees, the rope straining slightly as she swayed in the breeze. Her last

I Love You.We had been laughingI Love You.5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sitting next to one another
Just enjoying each other's company
Like we always did
Surrounded by other people
But we didn't see or hear them
We never did
Because when we're together
It's just you and me
Now we grow silent
Our laughing reduced to happy smiles
Leaning against each other
To stay sitting up
I had always enjoyed the silent moments
Where we could say everything
But nothing at all
Where it seemed to always be warm in our little world
But this time it was different
I knew it was a perfect opertunity
To finally say what I had been wanting to
To get this overwhelming feeling off my chest
I grew slightly stiff
My nerves were jittery
I refused to look at you for longer than a second
My mouth felt dry
My fingers would twitch
And our world felt hotter
But I bet it's just me
Because you look fine
Just like you always do
This is it
I'm going to say it now
Put my heart on the line
Because love is love
Love is taking chances
Love is blind
Love is fear
Alternatives to Self-InjuryThese are some basic alternatives to self-harm:Alternatives to Self-Injury5 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
1. Rubber Bands: Okay I know some people may still see this as self-harm, but using a rubber band is much less damaging than cutting or other such things.
2. Cranking up music: Whether is angry, emo, country, pop, techno, whatever, blasting music can be used as an outlet for one's emotions. Experiment and find out what works for you; it may not even necessarily be your favorite genre of music.
3. Pillows/Stuffed Animals: This was suggested to me by a friend. It may feel odd or a little childish, but clinging to a stuffed animal or wrapping one's arms tightly around a pillow can bring a sense of comfort. I was also told to try transferring all of my emotions into it. Believe me, this one works.
4. Square Breathing: Yet another tip I got from a friend. Close your eyes, wrap your arms around yourself if you have to and breathe. Count in to four slowly, hold your breath for the

A Siren's CallA Siren's Call2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Visions of madness shimmer in silvery skies
Horizons of passion drown in timeless beauty
There is a voice so pure that can melt a Sun,
a fragrance so luring that can reap mortal breath
Once thou hath gazed into the eyes of a Siren,
love befalls in a kiss, upon whispers of death
An endless ocean swirls, ethereal waves bewail
the sound of her cry haunts eons of dreams
In the deepest abyss, my soul shall forever sail
For a thousand years, I drifted in her song
lost in restless fever of wanton seas
Gently I reached towards her long silvery hair;
embroidered in tempest of Love's odyssey
Tears of sapphire jewel oceans deep ...
luminous thoughts seeking the nectar of bliss
Among flesh and shadows, I crave evermore
Lips unveiled, blackness approaches
my destiny entombed by the Siren's lore
When the world turns forever still,
only the sound of her fleeting whispers remain,
like echoes of rain, suspended over the sea

What is a KissTechnically speaking;What is a Kiss5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A kiss is the tradition two lovers commit to, that invlolves the touching of one another's lips, tongues, teeth, or skin. It is a sign of love or lust, or an act of public affection. Also known as the Brail Method of saying "I Love You".
A kiss is much more than that.
When we kiss,
nothing a few words could ever explain.
When we kiss, we are letting more than just our lips touch.
We let them collide,
An emotional hurricane,
Erupting in us both.
They mend and meld,
Forming against eachother,
Then we take it deeper.
Out tongues don't just meat and play.
Run along each other,
As if they were their own enteties,
Working for our love.
They elecite moans,
The sliding of silava,
Connecting our mouths,
Thir own room of heat and moisture and feeling.
When we kiss, we are letting our souls meet through our mouths.
They meet at out lips,
