Thump ka-thunk thump- the sound of bare feet rhymatically running on old wood planks sounds in the otherwise empty forest. The rushing wind that echoes in her ears tries in vain to wipe the tears from her face- salty paths that end in a drip off her chin.
The soles of her young feet cross the last of the splintered wooden bridge, still yet strong enough to ignore the dull slap of pain. Just a flash, a gray silhouette of a girl- the crystal-blue water with the faded leaves hardly notes her passing.
She's needed this for so long- sweet serenity from the city's endless roars and rumbles.
The rum-a-tum-tum of her fleet feet match the rumbling sound of drums, a nice change from the constant roar of the unresting city she had grown so used to. The city, with its grey walls- prison walls, always keeping you locked inside (she shivered, but she wouldn't have you know that.)
Colored leaves imitating the tones of the sun crunch in her wake as she imagines floating through the forest, leaving all

Then how will you your secret tell?
When you say nothing.
Because you cannot.
You have not color, for the daylight to see.
So how may I know of your secret, do tell me?
When there is now nothing to look upon.
Because the light won't let me.
You have not kindness in your inherited temper.
So how can you give away so much?
When all you have is love.
You are of so many riddles.
Who, you cannot manifest,
Though I know, you biggest riddle is empathy.

"Wow " I scanned through the website, looking for more videos that Len-san and Rin starred in. Beyond my virtual bedroom door, I could hear the rest of my senpais doing what they usually do: make a lot of mess, and a lot of noise. "They're so good "
"Oy." A voice behind me says. "What are you doing?"
I practically leapt 10 feet high into the air. "L-len-san!!" I squeaked, quickly trying to block the computer screen. How'd he open my door without me hearing?!
"N-nothing, just checking stuff out, ahahahaha!" A lone eyebrow rose into his banana colored hair as blue-green eyes stared skeptically at me.
"Oh? Then why do I hear my 'Spice' song playing?" he questioned. My face turned pink.
"Shit " although I had managed to cover the screen, I'd forgotten to pause the video
"Now tell me again: what are you doing?"
" I'm just looking at senpai's videos " I muttered, letting my long silver hair fall in front of my face to hide the blush creeping up my cheeks.

Why Do You Hate Me?Why Do You Hate Me?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I lay here on this cold winter's night
I begin to wonder what I have done wrong
That you could become so angered enough
To bash my head with glass
And kick me till my body
Was covered with bruises and blood
The blood that would never stop running
All I have to ask is why?
Why did you want to harm me so bad?
I had loved you with all of my heart
Because you were my master
And all I ever wanted to do was please you
My heart is full of pain
When I think of my beloved sister
We were sleeping so soundly together
When you grabbed her by the neck
And dragged her out the door
Her helpless cries pierced my ears
The ones that were caused
When you set her fur aflame
And let her burn away to ashes
Now I lay here wondering why?
Why did you have to torture her to death?
She loved you as much as I did
Because you were her master
And she never tried to disobey
My body is growing so cold and numb
I can feel my time is now coming to an end
I still love you, my

i gave my heart to a crocodile
he used it as a toothpick
i took it back
gave it to Charlie Chaplin
he kept playing the dictator
i took it back
gave it to Houdini
he'd make it disappear every morn

gave it to the Beatles
they threw it to their lunatic fans
i took it back
gave it to my chest
it was dark and bloody in there
i took it back
gave it to You,
to stuff it next to yours -
i heard from your veins
there's room enough for Two
in your rib cage.

Must Love Cats
Fur of gold to pet and rub,
Perfect cat for me to love,
Razor claws and pointed teeth,
All the better made to keep,
A quick brush along silky fur,
Rewarded with a rumbling purr,
Given a glancing nuzzled kiss,
He is mine and I am his.

Their meeting wasn't planned, nor had Troy meant to wander into Flash's territory. Boundaries weren't marked, but he should've seen the change; the yellowing grass, the lack of the trees gentle whisper. Instead something else had driven him onwards, perhaps his self-conscience had known where he had been headed but anger had blinded him, propelling him to a spot his father had always forbade him to visit.
His mothers words rang in his ears, he hadn't meant to overhear her conversation to Darko, but each syllable rang with the pain and anguish she had endured during her time within Flash's heard, and for days he'd paced, twisted with the thoughts and images that had been conjured within his mind.
Patience had snapped, and at the first opportunity he had left, reminding himself to cover his tracks as he did so, he wouldn't let George follow him this time.
Flash's silhouette hung fiercely on the hilltop. Pride sculpting his figure, his head held handsomely high as he overlooked his heard

You paused as you walked into the room. So many choices.
You looked around, feeling slightly crest-fallen. None of the cats really looked like on you could get along with.
Maybe you shouldn't buy a cat. You didn't know if your apartment even allowed cats.
Besides, would you really have the time to take care of one?
Sighing, you turned to leave.
"I'm really sorry Miss Elizabeta. I don't think I'm ready for a cat."
She nodded and shrugged, "Come back if you change your mind."
Sighing again, you left.
"I can't deal vith him." You looked over at your German friend. Ludwig was glaring at something behind the couch. He had called you over, saying that his cat was a pain in the ass.
"So what do you want me to do?" Standing up, you walked over and peered around him.
You blinked down at the little cat standing before you. He had a strange curl of hair. His beige fur ruffled.

The meowing from the cats was loud. There had to be at least thirty cats there.
"Are you looking for a particular type of cat?"
"No. Not really..." You twirled a lock of hair around your finger. "Are there any kittens?"
"Yes!" Elizabeta clapped her hands. "Only one though, the other two where adopted." Nodding you followed her over to a cardboard box.
Inside was a smallish beige and white cat. It had the most vibrant purple eyes you had ever seen.
"This is Matthew. His father, Francis, is that one over there." You looked over at the fluffy white cat.
"Um I'll take him!" Reaching out you patted the kittens head. He blinked up at you.
Elizabeta grinned, "Good choice! Matthew's a bit shy, but he'll warm up to you!"
It was a rather quiet ride home. You kept glancing at the kitten, He had fallen asleep after being put in the carrier. You smiled at the collar around his neck. Elizabeta had given it to you

"I'm home!" you called out as you pushed open your front door. Hands full of grocery bags, you close the door with your foot. Not a minute after announcing your presence in the house, a blur ran out from your room and over to your legs. Standing there, nuzzling your shin was your tabby cat, Romano.
Romano had become extremely protective of you once you had found out that you were pregnant. Your fiancé, whose child you were pregnant with, was currently overseas on military business, so you were left alone with Romano. You had just gotten your cat around the time your fiancé and you had started dating. He had always been rather protective of you, but as of late, he would refuse to leave your side. He would throw fits when you would have guests over, not that he wasn't always getting mad when you had others over, especially males.
But lately, he would hiss and sometimes even bite if you had company. Speaking of company, your friend Alfred was going to come over today.

My endless imperfections
shout to the very core of my soul,
Beating away at my humility,
To bare reminder
that I do not deserve you
in the slightest...
Grace is your very essence,
as you embody that which is perfection.
Whereas my rush
to find the flaws of my name,
You tell it tales true,
of the feelings you hold.
Abnormal is my persona,
and infinite apologies are due,
Many thanks, just as much,
are in order...
To God, to you....
Beauty be what has enraptured my heart
for the eternal hour at hand,
You and only you are the whom
that I most desire,But never deserve.

Sam sat in the cockpit of the small sailboat "Sanctuary", hand on the tiller and deep in his own thoughts. It had been four months since Bom's death from the accident and his life was in utter shambles. A board of inquiry had cleared him of fault, but her father had never accepted their verdict. Neither had he. He knew what had caused the accident; in his haste to get her railgun working again he must have missed a crack in the weapon's frame, and when he bypassed the sensor he'd sealed her fate. The weapon exploded in her hands and a piece of it had flown through her head, killing her instantly.
He had done his best to put it behind him, to get back to his life as best as he could but her father had gone to work on him; cashing in a lifetime of favors owed him and destroyed his career. He couldn't get assignments within the Espatiers in any field and even the p

"Why are you always so sad wolf?"
Because the troubles of the human way
Will never go away
Until I see the day
That I pass from this world of gray
"What do these tears mean wolf?"
They mean love that is lost
And what this life has cost

I am a complicated mess..

As he looked into my eyes
And then he said
As I continued to cry
"You are not.."

Tazihound said the following:
Faust’s paws plummeted to the ground as he broke into a swift sprint, dirt and ice being thrown in his wake. He released a menacing growl with each pump of his legs, tossing his head aside in frustration. His mind was reeling, his unsorted thoughts clouding his judgement. How was his brother so blind? How could he make his mother see? How could they not care?!
He would never be satisfied here! Knowing there were wolves out there who were suffering, it was sickening to him! He threw his weight forwarded and slid to a halt on his paws, his body falling and rising with the intensity of his gasps for air. He could not reason with them. He had made up his mind. He was going. Not his brother nor his mother could stop him.
He dreaded when next he would see them. What would his mother think of him? Nothing but a disappointment, a disgrace to Havir! What would Saurugol do? He had grounds now, to expel Faust from Havir for speaking bey
