-Păi uite că ne-a chemat o colegă de-a mea.
-Pe toți, frate!
Discuția fu întreruptă de un zgomot de frâne scârțâind. Dintr-o mașină mică și neagră coborî Răzvan, salută politicos, după care se duse și dădu mâna cu fiecare dintre prietenii lui.
-Ce faci, băi? Nu te-am mai văzut de ceva vreme. Stai toată ziua cu Alexandra.
-N-o să se pună problemă de acuma, stați liniștiți.
Răzvan se uită în stânga, jos, clipi moale de câteva ori, după care forță un zâmbet:
-Nu știți? M-a părăsit săptămâna trecută. Voi ce mai faceți?
-Discutăm despre ce facem de Rev.
-Mai e o lună.
-Da, mereu facem așa și ne trez

Întins pe covorul umed şi îmbibat în roşu, un hedonist îşi muscă amar buza şi se preface că nu stie, nu îşi aminteşte de viitor şi de controlul lui, nici de şiretlicurile proprii de atunci. Cu greu se ridică şi, împleticit, gol şi cu parul negru peste ochi, doborî un ceas mecanic. Tic-tac. Tăcu.
Intrând în bucătarie crezând ca e o s(f)eră, îşi ascultă inima să se convingă că încă bate. Vru sa mănânce dar îşi aminti că duminica nimeni nu livrează fericire la domiciliu. Trase pe el blugii negri rupti de-a lungul coapsei şi îşi târî labele spre un fotoliu voilet aprins. Işi aprinse o iarbă. Dracul apăru. Ii reaminti cordial de ultima lor întâlnire. Băiatul se întoarse şi se întinse pe fotoliu, pe burtă. Dracul îşi făcu pofta lasând foc în orificiul băiatului. Il sărută pe frunte şi se făcu nevăzut. Doar nevăzut, nu plecă. Băiatul îşi ridică pantalonii şi îşi luă
Half ?It is said that the piano reaches the human heart,Half ?3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It is said that it's the only thing that keeps you alive, keeps you strong, keeps you together, keeps you from falling, keeps your heart from being alone and on top of all it keeps you safe.
And it's also said that when it's combined with his other half (each of us has hes own half, in their vision) their bond is so strong that you can never break it, not by words, not by hate and nor by things that you do..
I wonder, has it reached mine ?
Has it made me strong ?
Has it made me love again ?
Has it made me forget ?
And the one which I'm really curious about is: "Will it ever be the same, as you dreamt " ?
Should I be concerned about it ? - probably
Should I take care of myself ? - maybe
Should I tell her what she means for me ? - ??? unknown
And the answer to all of this is locked somewhere in your heart; probably waiting to burst out or just waiting for the right moment, probably. But I'm still going to laugh on it.
A Dog Keeps His WordYou left me here waiting by the shore.A Dog Keeps His Word4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
I watched you swim away until I couldn't see you anymore.
With patience I will sit here happily,
enjoying the summer breeze until you come back to me.
Upon the dock I replay it in my mind
the words you said brought sadness in your eyes.
Normally we come here to play in the sand,
but you forbid me this time so I understand.
You said you loved me more than I'd ever know,
then you hugged me tight and said you don't want to let go.
Wiping tears from your eyes you told me goodbye
and walked down to the ocean with a heavy bag at your side.
You looked up at me as you tied the bag to your waist.
I wagged my tail, your eyes welled up and you looked away.
I always knew you loved me dearly,
and you were everything in this world to me.
Weeks have gone by as I watch for you out there in the sea.
Sometimes I'm sure I catch your scent in the summer breeze.
And still I hear your words in my head,
and I'm longing for the moment when I'll see you again.

You Are the ReasonI dreamed about you again.You Are the Reason2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of how much I miss you,
And of how much my heart is breaking.
Then there you were,
Brought back from the dead,
And I could hold you and feel you once more.
But then the alarm rings,
And you're gone.
No matter how much I wish to see you again,
You don't come back.
Sometimes I feel as if my heart is shattering,
Because of how much I love you.
I don't want you to go,
But you are already gone,
Moving on to where I can't yet be.
I know that you are happy where you are,
But it is hard to be happy here without you.
If I could hold you just once more,
If I could just hear your loud snores,
If I could just feel you,
Just touch you,
But my hand grasps only empty air.
Why did you have to leave me,
You were the one I cried into,
But now you are the reason the tears fall.

Butter's ears perked up in interest. Were her prayers finally to be answered? Was meeting this feral cat fate? To finally roam around Euteria without fear of her master following her or harming her was something she had been dreaming about. Since she was born her master would beat her, ranging from a single slap to a full fledged attack depended upon whether or not the master was in a good mood. This meant most of the beatings she received were as a result from something she did not do. She had not tried to escape before because she couldn’t bear to leave her mother and Scotch in such an awful place. Her mother had passed away in the last six months, and now the entire brunt of the beatings were inflicted on Butter. Butter had tried desperately to keep quiet so that her brother could liv

"Hiroki, we're here!" Lucy pointed to the small building in front of her with the big letters 'Fairy Tail', but the 'L' was hanging upside down. The guild still had that warm welcoming feeling even if it did look old.
"So this is the infamous Fairy Tail?"
"C'mon, I'll introduce you to everyone!" Lucy grabbed Hiroki's wrist and pulled him inside the guild, leaving Natsu behind. The pink-haired boy folded his arms, getting more annoyed, but followed the two inside the guild.
"Everyone!" The blonde yelled, catching everyone's attention.
"I'd like to introduce my childhood friend." She nudged the mage beside her, showing it was his turn to talk.
"My name's Hiroki Kimura. It's nice to meet you all." He smiled, showing his perfect white teeth. "I'm hoping you'll let me join your guild; it'll be just for a while though."
Mira was the first one to walk over to us and greeted Hiroki.

The Road To Love Chapter 7Sunlight streamed through the windows, casting a warm glow in the room. The blonde felt the rays of the sun hit her face, causing her to turn away from the light. That was when she felt an arm on her waist pulling her closer. The Celestial mage fluttered her eyes open, thinking that the arm belonged to childhood friend Hiroki, but as she looked up to her companion sharing her bed, her eyes widened in horror.The Road To Love Chapter 72 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It was her best friend/teammate/crush, Natsu Dragneel! Her face started heating up and her cheeks flushed to a bright red. She did the most reasonable thing a girl would do; she screamed and kicked him off the bed. He landed with 'thud'. Lucy looked down to see that the fire mage had landed on top of the sword requip mage; Natsu's back was on Hiroki's stomach. This had woken the sleeping sword requip mage and now there was a dark aura emitting from Hiroki.
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ON TOP OF ME!?" Hiroki pushed Natsu off and grabbed him by the collar. This made the pink-haired b
The Road To Love Chapter 5The small, blonde girl, around the age of 6, would always be seen frolicking in the rose garden near her mansion.

"This is for you Mama!" A large grin plastered on her face.
Layla accepted her daughter's present with a loving smile and said,
"Thank you, Lucy. It's beautiful." Layla was used to her daughter giving her lovely roses, but she would always say a 'thank you', which pleased Lucy.
As Lucy was about to go back to plucking roses, her mother gently planted the blue rose in her daughter's hair.
"Now, it looks even more beautiful" This earned a giggle from Lucy.
"Thanks Mama!" The petite blonde girl ran back to the rose garden, happier than ever.
Her mother chuckled and walked back to mansion, wanting to make a quick snack for her daughter.
Lucy looked around curiously, bored of playing in the rose garden, and spotted 'The Forbi

Sweet Cravings Chapter 1 REDO“Are you gonna buy the bras or not?” I asked as I swiped a pair of purple jeans across the scanner. The blonde girl shot me a vicious glare before continuing to compare the two bras in one hand to the wad of cash in the other.Sweet Cravings Chapter 1 REDO1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She looked like she was in her late teens and had the attitude to match. I hated it when people brought their items to check-out and then realize that they don‘t have enough money to pay for everything. It was only my second week of work, and so far I was doing a pretty good job, except when people like this annoyed the hell out of me.
The girl chomped on her gum and looked at me with puppy-dog eyes. “I love them both! Can you pick for me?”
I examined the bras quickly and replied, “Pink leopard against blue zebra. Pink leopard wins.” She shouldn’t have asked me. I was bias for pink from the start.
After she left I took a good long stretch, strode to the backroom door, and peeked inside. “I’m leavin

A loud crash erupted, the sound of the peaceful water being pushed out of its safe abode.
A piercing tone called out to her, “Butter! Please come in the water with me!”
She instantly recognized the voice belonging to her twin brother Scotch. Her cat ears twitched from the annoyance of her brother disturbing her tranquility. She peered one of her eyes open to see him drenched in the crystal like waters of Euteria. She couldn’t resist as the urge overtook her and the lips upon her face curved into a smile, her unmistakable feline fangs exposing themselves. The saliva dried quickly in the morning air.
“You are so silly brother, you are a walking contradiction.” She said, her smile growing wider.

I threw it away.

You gave me your jacket,

You gave me your weekends,
When I got older,
I let you spend them alone.
When we were younger,
You gave me a shoulder to cry on,
When I got older,
I turned you away.
When we were younger,
You gave me your heart,
When I got older,
I tore it out.
Now that I'm older,
And apparently wiser,
I feel like an idiot,
Cuz you still have my heart.

'I'm such an idiot' I said in my head.
'But Natsu's an even bigger idiot for not noticing my feelings!' I yelled in my head.
I started walking faster just wanting to get home and scream into my pillow.
"Hey Lucy, have you told Natsu yet?" asked Mirajane, one of the few people I can talk to about my crush.
"Mira-san, do you have to bring that up now?" I asked trying to make sure no one was listening.
"Lucy, I think it's time you told him... If you don't, then someone might take him..." said Mira-san as she looked over at Lisanna, who was laughing with Natsu.
It had been a week since Lisanna came back. Everyone had thought she was dead but she had just gone to another world called Edolas.
"Mira-san, you know he doesn't feel the same way..." I responded sadly.
"Lucy, you'll never know unless you try!" Mira said trying to encourage me.
"I'm going home Mira-san." I said as I grabbed my bag and started walking away.
"Lucy....." I heard Mira-san say to herself.

Can you see through it?
