-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
Half ?It is said that the piano reaches the human heart,Half ?4 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.

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

Rikki had to shout in his ear a few times to get his attention and she grinned when he hurriedly turned down the volume.EverScript. Chapter 1.4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Who was that?" She asked, enchanted by the music that was now coming at a reasonable volume from his speakers.
His green eyes showed his shock. "They're the newest hot band."
Rikki pursed her lips and shrugged. "Don't know them."
Dai groaned and sat heavily on his bed. "EverScript? Have you even heard of them?"
Rikki shook her head innocently, an abashed smile on her face. "Sorry. Finals were hell and I'm still trying to figure out if I wanna go to university."
"Rikki, they came out a year ago. And the deadlines for applications passed a few months ago." Dai sighed in exasperation.
"Really?" Rikki cried out, and she slapped her forehead. "Stupid me. I knew I should have looked at that before!"
Dai raised an eyebrow. "And why didn't you?"
Rikki blushed scarle

"EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!?" She shouted.
A small 'WOW!' came from Lucy's bed, which caught all three of the mage's attention.
"This is getting better and better!" exclaimed Happy with a bucket full of popcorn.
'WAS HE THERE ALL THIS TIME!? AND HE DECIDED NOT TO DO ANYTHING!? HE'S GONNA FEEL MY WRATH AFTER THIS!' The blonde maiden screamed in her head, a scary aura surrounding her.
"Uhh... Should I even ask?..." asked Hiroki with an amused look on his face.
Lucy turned her attention back to Hiroki.
"H-Hiroki... Y-You just... T-To me..." She couldn't get the words out.
Hiroki just smiled at her and said,
"I love you, Lucy. I always have, and I always will."
Lucy was dumbstruck and frozen in her spot. It was like her brain wasn't working properly and she couldn't do anything.
Before she could reply, a fist landed on Hiroki's cheek, which caught him off guard and sent him flying back into Lucy's dresser.

Scotch puffed out his tail in anger.
“I said you are going the wrong way! Why won’t you listen to me!?”
Kokoro hushed him.
“Be patient, she has a reason for doing so.”
Iris stood up and turned towards the remaining twin.
“Your master has altered the surroundings to your house, the path in which you are used to has changed. The only way for us to find your sister is to follow this trail. It will take some patience but we have to keep moving to find her in time.”
Kokoro nodded and Iris fled towards the direction of the scent, the others running close behind her.
“What do you think he is doing to Butter?!” Scotch yelled out to Iris, but she only shook her head.
“I have no idea.” But she did know. She knew every little th

It blooms for you.
See my eyes strong and hazed
The snow compliments and treats them,
I follow your tracks wildly through the glistening wonderland
But it's like a maze in this blizzard in May
Can my heart feel for you, I'll breathe for it.
Too feel your warmth through the winters touch,
i wander hoping i dont fall.
Frozen in place.
My hand hangs frozen in awe.
are you searching for me?
Can you see through it?

Chapter 3: CottoneseThe Demoni ran at Butter who stood her ground, bracing herself for impact. She planted her boots into the ground as the taller, stronger intruder crashed into her. Grabbing Butter's dress, the demon cat slammed her into the tree, causing a shower of leaves to fall over them as some birds squawked in annoyance, fleeing from their nests. Butter's lips curved up, baring her teeth as she puffed out her tail in animosity. She extended her claws and raised her arm, slicing across the Demoni's shoulder as a yelp escaped the demon cats' lips. Butter seized this opportunity, using the tree for leverage as she kicked her foot out and slammed it into the Demoni's stomach, flinging her into the dirt. The Demoni let out a hiss before bolting upwards and sprinting at Butter. Butter's cat-like instincts took over as the flame point jumped into the air right over the demon cat, whose momentum resulted in slamming face-first into the tree.Chapter 3: Cottonese2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

A wave of emotions came over Hiroki. Confusion, shock, anger. Hiroki stormed towards the bed and pulled Lucy out of Natsu's grasp.
"Who is he?!" Hiroki shouted.
The fire mage groaned and rubbed his eyes.
"What's going on...?" He asked in a sleepy voice.
Natsu opened his eyes and glanced at Lucy, then at Hiroki and kept repeating it. He finally stopped and then sat in a slouchy position on the bed.
"Luce, do you know this guy?" Natsu asked rubbing his neck.
"Isn't that my line?" Hiroki said coldly. "Who is he and what was he doing in your bed"
"H-Hiroki, this is Natsu" said Lucy pointing at the pink-haired fire mage. "And, Natsu
this is Hiroki."
"About him in my bed... Well, you see-" started Lucy, but Natsu cut her off.
"What the hell is your problem? I'm Lucy's best friend and her teammate." He stated.
'That's all he thinks of me...?' the blonde maiden thought, frowning.
"Well it didn't look like it when you were being all cozy in bed together!" Hiroki raised his voice.

The coach blustered over the cobbled pathway. The sky had switched into a dark blue – purple color and stars hid behind clouds.
'What a beautiful sunrise'
you thought while you were looking out of the small window of the coach.
'And will happen with my little Lillie now? She doesn’t know where I am. Okay, I don’t know it either, but she is only 15. Hm if I’m lucky, Ms. Smith is watching her now.'
"Hey girl, do you have a home?"
asked the white haired.
Slowly you turned around to look at him and said "Well... not really, I..."
"Awesome, then I have no problem with taking care of you. Oh, and if you are homeless, that means you do not have any money, right?"
He interrupted you.
"Yes, I do not have any."
You said a bit shy and softly.
"Ah that’s not a problem! You can earn money now, because I took you. Working at my estate fits you better than I thought. Anyway you are cute and you look like you can do housework."

"Any Other Way"
It was six days after the tournament that I left early in the morning with Icemoon. I walked up to the roof with Garnet, who relieved Zilia of her night-long duty of watching over the Bell Dragon eggs. We were still trying to figure out something to do with them so they didn't have to be exposed. So far, there were no threats aimed at them, and there had been no signs of Steven since his obvious injury.
Ember had checked up on us several days before. He had stayed the night and we had spent some time with him before sending him off again. All he had learned about Steven was that he was in a bad condition. Ember also told us that fairies had been sent away several weeks before for spying in Besun's capital. We then spent those days awaiting their return with bated breath.
The day before, as well, Miplin had told me some important information that had sparked a bit of unease at

Ms. Trinket's Pie Emporium was a tiny five-table diner squashed between a convenience store and highway 93. It had a bright painted sign and screen doors no air-conditioning and its bathrooms were pit toilets in a row by the road. Behind it the Rocky Mountains rose from sloping green hills to jagged snowy peaks that brushed the sky. They were immense and other worldly, and as Hannah knew they were also dotted in flowers. Chiming Bells, violet Penstemons, nodding Beargrass and Glacier Lilies would all be clinging to the mammoth rocks, and they were also all either potted or growing wild in front of the Emporium. Hannah knelt beside the Penstemon her favorite of the four to get a better look. They were a member of the figwort family with five stamens and one that extended out like a tongue. Her biology professor had confused her by calling the plant by its nickname Beardtongue and she could see the reason now. They were so bright and

In the depth of Autumn,
Reflecting ocean pool, and
In the big red and white country.
"Marry me," he sighed
Bright emerald eyes
And his soft peach smile,
On his knee in the mud
holding my glove
And kissed my hand.
"Marry me, Sweetheart..." he soothed so sweet
His words-swarming bees-
Breathing on my neck.
I, weak like a blade of grass
In the wind.
Sensual and seductive sensations
Licking my chest and neck...
"Oh, Marry me, Honey, I love you..." He rubbed my shoulders
Kissing my nose like a child,
Holding a silver ring,
The solemn sweet silver sun shining
Placed upon the ring finger.
I lost air,
Grinning widely, wider than the moon.
Raining pour from my face
To the Soil.
He kissed my ear and
"Marry me, my darling, i love you..."
. . . . . .
"Marry me..." I remember him saying.
Rain and blue moon, thunder
His smiling picture
"I'll be home, Sweetehart...I promise...."
"Marry me...Marry me...please...come back..

My breathing increases in pace
The insecure feeling returns
I'm in a state that's far from grace
I really shouldn't be so nervous
But I'm running out of time
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Don't think like that, it will be fine
And now I'm standing in the middle of the room
Checking on makeup that we're brainwashed to consume
Remembering those magazines that tell you that your life's a competition
That we're all fighting for someone to fight for
You better watch your back
You're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
It's time to face the fact
That you're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
They're always hungry
They bite the hand that feeds them
So why do you still provide?
My smile is empty, my voice is sad
Although I wear this mask on my face
Trying to find what I once had
From opportunities I embrace
I really shouldn't be so upset
But I'm running out of time,
My love and trust

I impale a belated dawn

with the rapids in

What is Love. Treason?What is Love.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I dared dream to hold you,
to speak love to your perfect cherubim lips.
I desired to envelope you,
in our cover of night,
where love could blossom in dusk intimacy.
Where none could speak the names of treason we bore with shame.
and oh how I loved you,
for our three days,
and true love perished,
should our families feel the same.
At first glance,
a young boy,
staring through a glass window,
frosty gloved hands on the pane,
and accident waiting to happen.
So I followed,
down the rabbit hole,
to a winter wonderland,
full of new dangers,
and first romance.
I loved you still,
where love is innocent.
We were children,
yet none loved as strong,
and I was your kingdom,
where you clasped, fair, radiant,
none could tarnish the silver of your smile.
Heaven's jealousy, could not but overcome it's envious joy,
taking you away,
in a small ship,
where I could not see you,
but we lov

And melt around your eyes
If you just smile a little
I'll know, for sure, you're okay.
I'll hold you close so you won't forget me
And we can walk this path together
And until we stop all I'll have left
Would be the feeling of your hand in mine.
Please erase your hesitation.
It's enough even if it's only for a second.
Escape into the gallows of broken sound
Can I say it? I love you.
Please hold my hand without hesitation
And if by tomorrow you've grown distant
Know that my love for you will remain unchanged.
When I see you on the other side of a dream
I beg of you, don't be mad.
There are snowflakes the have twirled down to us
And collect around your eyes
I know you can't smile anymore
Because I've taken that away.
For this final time I'll take your hand in mine
And let the red coat the snow
Frozen under a heavenly purity...
I hear your voice in the dawn
Where everything will become nothing.

It can take a life within a second,
It can shatter a skull,
Break a bone,
Destroy a story before it has finished.
A car is a lot like a sword;
It can slice a limb right off,
It can break and bruise,
Hack and tear,
Leave someone without their soul.
A car is a lot like a cricket bat;
It can bruise not just the surface,
It can dent and distort,
Hurt and scar,
Take away the mind.
A driver is a lot like an assasin;
Always carrying their weapon,
Always prepared to kill,
But unlike an assasin,
They never know their target.

I don't hate you
I just can't stand you
Nothing you say could change that
