Eyes on mePeople are watching every move that I make.Eyes on me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I must blindly obey for much is at stake.
Watched and controlled like a puppet on strings.
Of course, they don't know how it hurts and it stings.
Everyone's eyes are directed at me.
Just like a show for everyone to see.
Watched with pre-caution and told to be "good".
They say it's because I should act like I should.
I play the act, my part, take my place
And get ready for the crowd that I know I must face.
Some cheer, some scorn, some shed bitter tears.
But they'll never know my secret fears.
I don't know why this thing has to be.
But all I know is that their eyes are on me.

Damned soul collector
Tell me, how could you extort the life out of those shiny, brown eyes?!
I'm vividly smiling as he slowly dies
Tell me, didn't you fell a thing while giving the poisonous kiss?
I feel every beating of his heart as we are immersing in the bliss
A soul collector, destroyer of the mind,
I'm about to extinguish his light, to leave him lost and blind
I'll encage his ripped soul,
Just after he'll lose the self-control
Don't drag another soul into your disgrace,
Just one more blanked face
Don't kill again with your breath-taking embrace,
I promise, just one more one more stolen core
You know you shouldn't, but your claws are digging already in his chest,
I'm spilling his blood, the flesh I wrest
Don't collect this soul, not this time,
I must capture his soul before he captures mine,
I promise, just
I Hate that I Love youI am such a naïve beingI Hate that I Love you3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For thinking that I could not possibly fall for you.
Ensnared by the same trap that's been set too many times to count;
Lied out for fools like me to stumble upon so unwillingly.
Of course, I told myself I was too strong to succumb to the pressure.
But I was unsurprisingly wrong.
Here I am; craving such a foreboding pleasure.
The mere whisper of your name causes uncontrollable shudders to run down my spine;
However, is it out of terror? Or...perhaps...something more?
I have yet to figure out such impossible chattels.
I tell myself that I should hate you
And thus my mind commands.
But the heart wants what the heart wants
And shows no hesitation; as it makes me a prisoner of my own feelings.
I will never act upon such injustices.
I cannot let my mind suffer the insanity that loving you would bring.
So I punch my fist into the wall
And scream my anger into the sweet silence.
Maybe if I scream enough;
I can actually change how I feel.
You must know that you're just

That is lost and confused
Stuck behind a wall of worry and pain
Just another girl
Who can't find her place
Stuck in-between the shadows
Of night and day
I want to spread my wings
And just fly away
I want to be full of colour
And full of life
I want to be free
And know where I belong
I want to be passionate
And I want to be me
I want to escape this lie
I want to be a Butterfly

A heart so pure and young.
How can I not be wrong?
A girl like you comes along.
Only once in this life.
For I made you my Wife.
An everlasting love.
That will fly forever.
In the sky of a thousand doves.
The distance is tough.
Future holding rough.
But, my heart is set in stone.
You are the one thing I want alone.
So hear my plead.
I am here with you.
Loving you is my part.

I fell from the skies of
and landed on Hell.
I was lost,
until I met you,
you were a perfect weapon
You and I were unbroken,
we even decided to
set the world on fire.....
Until the day betrayed
I was so upset that
I even lost my wings,
In the end I realised
that you were using me,
and for that I will never
let you seal my coffin.
I hope you remember
my last goodbye,
because that is the last
good memory you will
I hope you burn in your home,
in the fires of Hell.

Turning it left and right at a slowly pace
As if you savored it,
Never giving a moment's hesitation to do it.
I don't blame you, you have a reason to do so.
For this is to be expected when someone has done does something wrong.
A foundation of trust we build shattered.
With the stroke of a pen.
A weapon mightier then a sword
And even a gun.
I signed my own warrant, ink red as blood.
Maybe it is blood, I can't tell the difference anymore
Blood or no, once it was signed.
A million voices screamed for help, looking for answers.
But those weren't human,
It was your own thoughts claiming for answers, they raced across your mind.
You couldn't stop it, not till they were satisfield.
For an answer.
For a question.
A question so complex.
There is no right or wrong answer.
Whats done is done.
Time moves on and I can't fix it.
For the damage is beyond repair.
But I desire it, but no you won't let me.
We can't even build a new one, till there are more

That's what you were to me.
It was the first time we met.
I didn't care much about you to be honest.
You were just a regular person.
I was nothing to you as well.
We talk more frequently now.
You tell me about your past and it's darkness.
I tell you about my past and it's sadness.
We both come to an understanding.
We were sort of the same.
We were both hurt and we shut out a part of us.
I spoke to you.
You denied it.
You told me I was right.
You told me you did shut a part of you out.
I was relived.
You were starting to change.
It was for your grandpa.
It was for you.
It was for... me?
More than friends...?
We chat almost everyday now.
You didn't get any sleep because we chatted.
I was getting used to you.
You were getting used to me.
Maybe... a little too used?
I felt it.
You were starting to like me.
I was scared.
I didn't want to hurt you.
I avoided you for a month.
The Seven Deadly SinsYes, I have lustThe Seven Deadly Sins2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To be around you is to create lust
To want to be with you
To be in love with you
Is it not natural to feel like that
For an angel?
So yes, I have lust
And yes, I have gluttony
I want to drink you in
Taste you, feel you
Live in excess of you
You are the finest wine
The most delicious of foods
Anyone would want more
So yes, I have gluttony
And yes, I have greed
Any time less than forever
With you could never be enough
I want to be with you
To hold you and care for you
All of you, forever
And never give you up
So yes, I have greed
And yes, I am slothful
I have long since stopped
Trying to win the race
It is meaningless if I cannot cross
The line without you too
So I hold back and wait
To run with you is better than winning
So yes, I am slothful
And yes, I have wrath
What other word is there
For the feeling of warring emotions
That brew in my belly to see you?
My mind is in constant conflict
Hating the part of me
That would deny myself of you
So yes, I

Forgotten by everyone who once cared
Forgotten by her lover
And forgotten by our world
In the darkness she hides
And tries not to cry
As she disappears from reality
And leaves this world
She is left alone
By everyone she loves
They left her alone
When she needed them the most
Fading away into nothing
But no one seems to care
Tears stream down her face
And she starts to finally see
That everything around her
Is not worth her falling tears
She has been forgotten
Forgotten by everyone who once cared
Forgotten by her lover
And forgotten by our world

He awakes lying on his back on the altar of a church.
He feels…stiff, dry, worn out, and incredibly confused. His confusion only increases when he looks to the right of him and sees another man lying on the altar beside him.
But…it isn't just any man – it is himself. But the other him…the other him looks, well, dead. And how is that even possible? His hand stretches out, fingertips skimming across the high cheekbones of his – but not his – face. The skin is waxy and cold. He is dead, and has been for a while, although the corpse must have been preserved in some way.
So then…is he a ghost? How would that work, exactly? He feels so real, more real, even, than the dead him, who is as still and artificial looking as a mannequin, scarlet hair falling over closed eyes. His own eyes flick down to the corpse's neck, where a ragged wound is, black around the edges as though burnt. Caused by…a raygun. He remembers now, with a strange sort of s
End RemembranceEnd Remembrance3 years ago in Historical More Like This
Remembrance Day originates at the end of World War I. The idea is to honor those who died in the line of duty, defending their country from enemies. For all its pompous words and fancy granite memorials littered with colorful flower bouquets, Remembrance Day and others like it have failed miserably in achieving this goal.
I've often been criticized as having no respect, and that can be an impediment when discussing certain topics. However, I am often in luck – hypocrisy deserves no respect. What changed as a result of the enormous sacrifice of those who died in WW1? As the first bombs of WW2 fell just two decades later, millions once again obediently lined up under various pieces of colored cloths to slaughter and be slaughtered. It became obvious that absolutely nothing had changed, and that the millions of WW1 had died in vain.
Most would agree that all that lip service paid to the sacrifice between the two world wars wasn't good enough. To truly honor their sacrifice would be

God, I hope I'm doing this right
I was never really one for praying
God, Please look at me in my eyes
I'm sorry, I'm just so sorry for everything
Even though I'm just another one of your creations
I wonder why I was born surrounded by destruction
I know nothing of your pity
But I still want to try and believe in thee
I crumble down to my knees
And I beg of you, please
Destroy every nightmare that I have ever slept
Break and shatter every mirror in existence
So I don't have to dream of what I've become to be
So I don't have to see what has finally become of me
God, I was never really one for confrontations
But this is where I have to draw the line in life
Because hearing the truth is like learning an important lesson
Just like when I was told that it's all okay, it's okay to cry
Because everything just seems to happen for a reason
But now I know nothing, nothing except grief
I just hope this life of pain is not an inheritance
Because I've become so

Shepard walks away from the three paths that were opened up for him and towards a window, "I refuse," Shepard said, "I believe that the army that I have constructed will defeat your Reapers."
"They cannot," the Catalysts said as he stood beside Shepard, "you are a fool for believing in your army."
"No you are the fool," Shepard said, "I helped unite the Quarians and the Geth. They had been fighting for three hundred years, but with my help I stopped the war and united them together."
"That peace will not last," the Catalyst said, "eventually a Quarian will kill a geth and the war will be restarted. If you destroy all synthetic life the peace will last."
"No, I won't destroy all synthetic life. It won't bring peace between the Quarians and the Geth it will just destroy the Geth and that is not peace. I believe the Quarians and Geth can live in harmony," Shepard said, "perhaps a Quarian like Xen may try to dissect a geth but if

Black coats are worn
This is where Number XIV was born
Alone and silent
Things could be worse
Number XIII noticed her first
Salty yet sweet
First one she had
She realized they weren't all that bad
Warm summer sunsets
Three friends together
Xion knew it couldn't last forever
Not real at all
Look at his leer
XIV starts to realize her fear
Reprogrammed by I
Now on the clock tower
Xion uses all of XIII's power
A fall, defeat
Salt tears run
No more days underneath the sun

Fight Xemnas never.

Hoping to see you

Hoping you come back.

So that one day.

They stood and stared at the one who had called them, cried to them, screaming in pain and anguish and panic they had never dreamed could come from him, such emotions too different, too radical, too passionate, for someone like him.
"Help me! Hurry! Udagawa! Please! Please! An ambulance, anything! Please! Oh God! Oh God! It won't stop!!!"

Reminiscing on times that have disappeared,
All I can come up with is that I'm sorry,
And I just hope that I can grow from these stories.
In 2012 the world won't end, but mine almost did,
I submerged to the bottom, I withdrew and hid,
But somehow I emerged stronger,
And I've learned so much, my weakness no longer.
I have good intentions, I swear I do,
I never meant to hurt you, that much is true,
But just like everything in life,
We evolve from our pain and strife,
And as I stabbed you with this double sided blade,
Our personalities have been remade.
To everyone that I've caused pain,
By these hands I once disdained,
I pray that we can wipe away the stains,
Of blackness that sometimes shrouds our brains.

Too old to be a child
These feelings pent up
For more than awhile…
Too quiet to be noticed
Too loud to be ignored
With all in this life
How can I be bored?
Too thoughtful to give up
Too selfish to care
How much more of this pain
Can my poor soul bare?
Too blessed to be abused
Too violated to feel free
How in the world
Could all of this happen to me?
Too united to be missing
Too lonely to be found
I barely know what
Makes my world go round…
Too happy to ignore
Too troubled to acknowledge
How did I end up this way
With all of my knowledge?
Too creative to be ordinary
Too dull to be unique…
All of this uncertainty
Makes me feel like a freak…
Too difficult to be deciphered
Too simple to be misread
Unable to get this chaos
Out of my head…
Too pure to be tainted
Too corrupt to be clean
Powerless to figure out
What all of this means…
Too exhausted to keep writing
Too revived to end
This is one way
I help my heart mend…

I know the dark underbelly of this place
I know the black underneath the sun
I've lived the horror of the nights
I know how this world works
And I know that it looks better
With my eyes closed
Starving children and homeless families
Are living among us and around us
The tragedies of this place will never go away
The hurricanes and tornadoes never cease
The crying eyes and broken hearts
Will never leave
I could think back
And remember all the lights
But I still know
The world looks better with my eyes closed
Ignorance is bliss, it's sad but true
To see the earth through a child's eyes
Would be quite a wonder
Everything so pure and innocent
It seems though,
The older we get
The better we used to be
All we do is deny it all
Continuing to let all of
The potheads and whores
Walk around, self-absorbed
I see the horror of the younger generation
It's unfolding right in front of us all
Yet there's nothing we can do to stop it
Try and try, we'll
