"You know exactly what I mean. Now roll them up or I'll do it myself."
((She can see the tears welling in her mom's worried eyes...this happens everytime.))
She looks around the room; hoping for a distraction((the one that never comes)). Her mom stares knowingly at the long sleeve ((but it's Summer?)) she has fixed between her thumb and forfinger. ((Pinching so tightly, wishing that her mom would just give up.))
Tension. She's still waiting for her mom to leave the room. No matter how much her mom begs her, she'll never be able to reveal all those horrible reminders that shine across her once perfect skin.
Every line and ridge under her American Eagle flannel ((the one her mom bought for her)) screaming the same horror story.
It plays over
like the music she plays to drown out her sobs (("How did I become this?"))
the tears falling ((almost in rhythm to the music))

Directions to a HeartbreakThis is the way you should break my heart.Directions to a Heartbreak7 years ago in Teen More Like This
Firstly, you have to call me over the phone, since we're both too cowardly to see eachother's faces. Call on a weekend, perferably a Friday night so I can cope over the weekend and stay home that night to curl under the covers.
Tell me, "We had great times but-" then pause, and let me say "But what? Are you breaking up with me?" Say this, "No no no, I'm not...well...yes and no. I really like you but-" pause again because you don't know why you're doing this. "But what?" I will persist. "Is there someone else? Is it something I did? What?" Sense that I am growing angry, and imagine my face contorting to hold back tears. Decide I am ugly. Hate me for it. Do not say "It's not you, it's me." because that's cliche and you're original. Do not say it's someone else, because that will send me into a jealous rage, and you wouldn't want that. Do not tell me we're just too different, because I love you and despite my stubbornness, I would change for you.
My TearsI walked alone todayMy Tears4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To the only place that reminds me of you
I stood there, waiting for something,
Something that never came true
And the tears I cried slowly fell to the ground
Then disappeared within the rain
And maybe someday, the tears I cry will make everything the same
I stood alone today
Thinking about what I would say to you if you were here
And if you were here, how would I feel?
What would I do?
Tears blurred my sight
And now, I know you'd see them plain
And maybe someday, the tears I cry will make everything them same
ScarsScars on my hands,Scars4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
On my heart, on my soul
Though the redness fades over time,
The flesh of the hideous marks remains tough
The scabs are like war wounds
Covering gaping holes and small scratches earned in battles fought
On the front lines of life
Where family, friends, and I collide
The weapons are atomic
They seen harmless as they lay dormant
Then words, actions and emotions turn deadly at the hands of an enemy
When the smoke clears, the damage is revealed
Rebuilding a life isn't easy
The scars are a constant bitter reminder
Though wounds are old,
The pain returns with each look in the mirror
Pain is a strange lover
Providing escape, offering sweet numbness
And at the same time, pushing me further and further into isolation
Reach YouRight in front of me,Reach You9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So close I could try
To wipe your tears away,
Slowly flooding my thoughts.
Since I know that I can't reach you,
Though you're close enough to touch.
Since I'm right in front of you,
But you don't see,
Or let me know,
If I could really wipe that tear.
Am I imagining it?
Do I just want to see you sad,
So I can help you through a slump?
I'm pretty sure that's not the case,
Since daggers stab my heart,
Make me cry in your pain.
If I wanted to see you sad,
I'd be wishing my depression.
You've denied and resented,
Whatever I've tried to help.
Blamed what comfort I can give...
Or am I wrong again?
If I'm the one that caused your pain,
If I'm the thing
You never talked about,
Just say it's so.
Resolve whatever problems I've created in our past.
Confide in me
When troubles spring tears
Behind your red,
Who else would you?
Not anyone I know.
But when I'm what makes you sad,
There's nothing I can do.

He stood there, alone on a busy street, as he watched the last of the glimmer fade from the red in his lover's hair. He watched him walk away for the very last time. The streets were crowded, the sun burning his eyes, and he felt lost in the dark.
Vel knew this would be the last time, he was always forcing excuses to surface for why he shouldn't be with that younger man. Excuses. That's all they ever were. Lies, he told himself. He felt his heart sink lower into the emptiness, and heard an angry growl from overhead. The skies darkened suddenly with a gust of wind.
"Thanks.," he said with a sigh as he looked up.
Vel returned his eyes to where he last saw A---he stopped himself. He couldn't finish his name. It hurt. He closed his eyes as he felt the rain slowly begin. One drop, then two, then thirty. Soon he was soaked through his suit. His long raven hair pulled with the weight of the water into his face.

SomewhereSomewhere in the world, there is a man who's allowed to kiss you.Somewhere9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Somewhere in the world, there is a man who's allowed to love you.
And somewhere in the world, someone dreams of you at night.
And beautiful poems of you they do hopelessly indite.
Somewhere in the world, there are those who're allowed to know you.
Somewhere in the world, there are those who're allowed to love you.
And somewhere in the world, someone awaits one moment.
And that moment is when you make, from heaven, your descent.
They know not what it is they will say.
Though I am sure they shall rehearse
Every last word in every last way
Of that quaintly indited little verse.
Their dreams allow them to love you.
In that world you love them also,
Because in dreams that's what you do,
Everyone's part of your puppet show.
The world is perfect.
Or so it would seem.
For someone to see you
It would take a dream.
To them, you are everything.
And yet, you are nothing.
To me, you are everything.
And yet, you are nothing.
The loss of a mother.Melody: A sweet or agreeable succession of sounds.The loss of a mother.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Pleasing combination of two or three tones played together in the background while a melody is being played. Harmony also refers to the study of chord progressions.
A musical form where the melody or tune is imitated by individual parts at regular intervals. The individual parts may enter at different measures and pitches. The tune may also be played at different speeds, backwards, or inverted.
The loss of a mother.
When melody was in her young teens roboticizing was something that had become a force to reckon with.
Originally her home was a place of beauty but as the dark forces grew in strength it began to over take region by region. It started off small but grew at such a huge rate. Small towns to large cities soon became engulfed in chaos. Strength to strength it grew like a wild fire. Yet none knew where this power/being came from and slowly there found there world was falling to darkness.

Vicious thunder growls everywhere
Shelter now is needed to hide
The monsters fury plagues me here
Gloomy despair imbues the air

From the bouncy trampoline and the mini desert in my sandbox.
Im from the smell of freshly fallen pine needles
The blooming pear tree teeming with life
From the dark shadows under our porch.
Im from the dangerous, red-hot stove that burned my finger
From the lazy, soft-eyed queen of cats.
Im from the rainbow bread during my pre-school Christmas celebration
From Cant, never could and from Amen, Brother Ben, shot a goose and killed a hen.
Im from Earl the joker and the delicious Lathems Special
From Rugrats and Scooby Doo
From when my uncle lost his life in a car crash at age 15
From the family pictures scattered in random spots around my cluttered house
From the empty feeling of knowing that Daddys not here.
I am from those moments
A bright green leaf tainted with holes and spots
Dangling from a small, broken tree.

A few months have past since Ryan and Felix started dating. Ryan woke with a feeling like something was missing. What was it? He sat up in bed next to his new boyfriend, Felix, and thought that he might have forgoten one thing but he was not sure what. HIS GIRLFRIEND! He remembered he forgot to tell his girlfriend they where done and he was moving to Sweden. His phone went off making him scramble. He answered. "H-" He cleared his throat to get rid of the sleepiness, "Hello?" It was his girlfriend. Crap.
He explained everything and came right out and said he was gay. Pretty gutsy for a shy guy. He hung up and watched Felix sleep. It was like watching a kitten nap. So innocent and harmless. Then he noticed he had to sneeze so bad that he couldn't hold it back. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHCHO!" The loud sneeze woke Felix. It startled Felix so bad he jumped and fell out of the bed. "Owwww" Felix groaned out of the pain. "Sorry friend I couldn't hold it back." Ryan pointed out as he helped Felix back on
Dear Agony - Chapter OneThere was a kind of sombre silence hanging with the merciless chill in the early morning air, like the two had decided to pair together in hopes of making Reno even more miserable than he already was. They were succeeding. Icy wind cut through the thin layers of his suit, piercing his skin until his flesh not so much as froze, but burned. A cigarette hung loosely between a pair of well-defined lips, and the redheaded Turk backed up against the familiar metal body of his chopper, hoping to block out the cold.Dear Agony - Chapter One3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The grey light of dawn was spilling across the city of Midgar, casting harsh shadows over the landscape.

Fuck, it was just way too cold.
He checked his watch. Quarter passed six in the morning.
