A Siren's CallA Siren's Call3 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

LTWYL-Chapter 4Richard laid sprawled out naked on the couch. Anyone would have mistaken him for a dead body, but he might as well be dead. Slade did a lot of things, but never raped him. After another minute of blank staring, he focused his eyes on the kitchen's island, where Slade sat. In one hand there was a glass of liquor in the other a cigar. Richard didn't think Slade was a drinker let alone a smoker. 'Call Alex' He stated, no whispered. That propped Richard to sit up, and blink confused. Now with his mind slowly working again, he saw that Slade was deeply bothered by what he did, he looked almost ashamed. He silently did as he was told, Richard moved up off of the couch, and picked up the phone. Then he dialed Red's number. "You think I can stay with you for a while?" Richard asked. Red would have been excited if wasn't for the fact that Richard sounded so dead, and out of character. "S-Sure, I'll pick you up." He stated before hanging up the phone. Silently Richard went intoLTWYL-Chapter 43 years ago in Drama More Like This
Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+"Well well...Look at what the cat drug in." A cold voice chimed from the far end of the dark room. The boy slightly opened one eye to be face to face with what appeared to be another homunculus. This one was pale and long stringy green hair; he wore a tight black shirt that stopped at his chest with a matching black skort, the oroborus symbol was tattooed just below the skort on his right leg.Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"You look like someone I used to know..." Envy said with a small smirk. He pushed his thumb under the boy's chin and lifted it up so he could get a good look at his face. "A man I once killed perhaps...? And to think I could never see you as pathetic as I once did when I blew your stomach to pieces!" He said, cackling. "No...But you're not the same boy...Are you? Though that face makes my stomach squirm...The thought of helping you makes my blood curl." He snorted. Envy then reached in his pockets as he drew out a few small, blood red stones.
The boy looked at them sickly, not saying a word. "Eat

Waiting all the time..
Nerves and bottled problems,
Playing on the Line.
One step across the boundary,
It all just falls away.
No resolute, confidence,
No 'I'm OK' charade.
It spreads across my body,
Prickles under my skin..
It's inside, in my mind,
This demon.. I can't win.
My breathing becomes shallow,
I yearn to stop the tears.
It plays with every weakness,
It taunts, it glares, it leers.
This monster that's inside me,
Loves to come and play.
Beating me completely,
promising to stay.
So desperate for silence,
I try to ignore my curse..
My solitude will never last,
Each time it just gets worse.
I can't stand it any longer.
These nerves, this fear..
No one to help,
No one to hear.
I've got to get out of here..
Can you hear me?
...I'm drowning in my mind..
Unattainable Illusions +Ch 2+It was late...Finally Pride had planned something so that Envy wasn't behind his shoulder this time. Sitting cross-legged on the stone cold cement floor, which was almost identical to the boy's eyes, he took the crumpled picture out of the armband and looked at it for a minute. "Who are you...? Why do you haunt me like this...?" He whispered as he looked down at the picture. He had to be careful, for he knew that if he was caught by Envy he would receive a severe beating. The door behind him was locked, he sat patiently as he waited for someone...A soldier. He waited patiently for the knock that would inadvertently end the man's life.Unattainable Illusions +Ch 2+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Guns firing above his head,
Eyes glance down to his left,
Partner gone and his best friend died.
His heart wants to stay and mourn,
His head tells him to 'move on soldier!'
One last look, his partners' eyes stare blankly,
He remembers the last words he said,
'I miss my girl, tell her that will you?'
Blood runs thick on the sand,
It will never be free of the sins again,
The horror the sun saw that day,
Can never be undone,
Thousands dead, millions so hurt,
Many, many more lost someone they loved.
No one from yesterday has survived to live today,
Only one, he is alone, his rank so low,
If he returns, he'll be a hero, until then, he is forgotten,
Lost in the countless bodies of innocent deaths,
His finger on the trigger, scared now, afraid,
A child, no more than five, runs in front of him,
Her eyes streaming, she is an orphan, a loner,
The one and only survivor of her family.
His finger slips.
The bullet races through the air, but he was scared.
It missed her by few centimetres

Because He cannot hurt you
Listen to the man
and do as he says
to avoid a fiery end
to keep you sitting up straight
You think you are willing
Because your daddy said so
Don't you wanna see mom again
Tie your hair up tight
and close your knees
Smile with your teeth
your jaw tight
What you say is wrong
So listen well child

What is the difference in love and lust? alot of people think that there in love when in fact they only lust for the other. Most of people describe love as an emotional feeling that can not be described and others don't believe in love, but what does anyone really know, only a few people has the knowledge, but don't care to pass it on, I know that I have that knowledge and when you do, you will be able to have the best relationship with someone that only others dream of.,, By: James Bailey

Christian Bale viewed his reflection with a grin
He was covered from big toe to chin
Halloween was his fave
And sweets he did crave
Yup, the 'Dark Knight' would soon ride again
With pumpkin-bucket, he stood at the door
He had rung this doorbell twice before
His Batman costume was a hit
But a rather tight fit
He'd already eaten candies galore
The little kids were all up in a riot
The big kid in the Bat-suit was a pirate
He was collecting every treat
Down their little street
It was time for the Bat-dude to 'buy-it'
Christian heard an internal alarm bell
And finally the other shoe fell
Little monsters converged
Their sugarless rage having surged
So he fled like a bat-outta-hell

and grab your shotgun
Fight in the dead wars
This should be fun
The residents are evil
in this house of the dead
load up on ammo
they want to be fed
This is all real
There's no typewriter
Just hand me a cocktail
and a Zippo lighter
Grab your gun
Lock and load
It's already begun
It's time to go
Kill 'em all
It's not just citywide
It's a worldwide brawl
Better not get bit
Or the virus'll spread
So if you do
I'll aim for your head
Whether a 9 millimeter
or a pump action 12 gauge
Doesn't matter the caliber
Shoot 'em in the face
Burn 'em, shoot 'em
break their neck
do whatever it take
to stay unbit
Grab your gun
Lock and load
It's already begun
It's time to go
Find other survivors
Hold up somewhere
You better prepare
Reinforce the door
It's your last stand
Here comes the horde
They're now in inside
Broke through your defense
Others have died
Take the offense
They keep on coming
Round after round
You can't kill them all
UnattainableIllusions+Prologue"Am I really gonna do this..?" A solemn tone came from a young girl as she looked over the large transmutation circle that was etched in the concrete floor and the remains that were laid in the middle, a few silent tears formed in her eyes as they ran down her cheeks. She opened her eyes slightly as she fell back on her knees and her hands found their way to the floor near the circle, clenching her hands to the point where her knuckles had turned white. The girl was only 16, but after witnessing Edward Elric's death at the hands of the homunculus named Envy the once proud girl had been completely broken; her heart which had been broken in the past this time felt as though it had completely shattered. She didn't bother trying to mend it this time, the heart was like a mirror..Once broken it could never be mended, the remnants were left scattered on the cold, dingy floor.UnattainableIllusions+Prologue9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The soft lash of winter winds,
Exploring the air around you and whipping through,
Caressing every inch of exposed flesh,
The cold holding itself softly to you.
Your feet stop as if frozen,
Closing your eyes in the embrace,
Letting the aura of cold pass up and down your body,
You feel it getting closer to your face.
You try and fight back your smile,
But the more you feel you cannot hide,
The soothing presence of frozen snow,
Exciting as a late night sleigh ride.
Warm breath blends with cold by your ear,
Sending shivers down your spine,
Feeling the arms reach around your waist from behind,
By your stomach you watch the long slender fingers intertwine.
You dare not ruin the moment,
Sweet fuzzy feelings fill from head to toe,
His chin rests upon your shoulder,
And softly in your ear he does blow.
“Such a cold winters night,”
He said, snuggling lightly into your back,
“And you all alone in our special place,”
The light kiss to your ear; a most pleasant attack.

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
What is a KissTechnically speaking;What is a Kiss6 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,
