New Body, New DecisionWhen Paul opened his eyes all he could see was colors. Vibrant colors, the same colors of his scales, danced in front of his eyes.
"What's going on," he whispered, only to realize that his voice had changed to a raspy growl.
His back, mainly down his spine, felt strange and on fire and when he reached behind him to touch his back, a tentacle wrapped around his wrist. Finally, as Paul's vision cleared and his wrist was freed from the tentacle, he turned around to look at what had become of him. Scales covered his entire back, shinning with grim beauty. However, that wasn't what made his throat tighten in terror.
Down his spine, between a chasm of ripped flesh and black blood, were thousands of razor sharp tentacles that ranged from the size of your pinky finger to the length of your arm. Shaking, Paul dropped his gaze down to his hands in his lap which had morphed into talons.
"Paul," a soft voice called from the side of the room. Paul's gaze shot up and, huddled in a leap, was Maya. Th

I wrote my vows to you
That no matter if we ventured far
We would do what we'd have to do
I kissed you goodbye
Tears staining my lips
And I kept wondering why
I would have to leave this
Thousands of miles away from you
I sat there all alone
Not knowing what to do
Felt like I was lost, left to fight on my own
But then I looked up at the stars
Saw them looking back at me
And although the distance between us was far
I knew under the stars was where you'd be
You asked what I would miss when I went away
I told you the stars and you
And you told me that I was your day
And that you were my moon
And if I had the choice
To choose between having you and the stars
I would use every breath, until I had no voice
To be where you are
Too Much to AskSwallowing back the painToo Much to Ask2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Putting on the smile that I've grown to know
Knowing that the pain has always been the same
As I walk down this road alone
Is it too much to ask for
Someone to hold me when I'm breaking
I never really asked for more
Even though my heart's always aching
I know people care
But I just want someone to connect with
I just want someone there
I'm tired of thinking what if.

Its been one month

The soft padding of footsteps echoed down the main hallway. When they stopped, a shadow fell over the living room. One may have to keep in mind though that this was a small shadow. This small shadow just so happened to be descending from a small child who kept themselves hidden behind the corner of the hall. As they stepped out, their body blocked the light of the fireplace and thus the shadow grew to thrice its size. This shadow now covered the figure of a sleeping man adjacent to the child. This man was sprawled across the black, leather loveseat. From his mouth was produced an obnoxious snore. The only action that countered the effects of the snore that would normally leave the child cringing was the small radio chiming out Christmas music. Cautiously the child crept forward. When the ball of their feet left the wooden floorboard creaking they froze. Small, brown eyes loo
FriendshipFriendship means to give,Friendship2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But also to take -
Solidarity in joy and sorrow.
Friendship gives hope
And grants happiness as well -
It is assistance in times of loneliness.
Friendship must grow,
You have to cultivate it -
By frankness and honesty.
Friendship means to love
And to be loved -
It depends on mutuality.
Understanding for the other -
Despite his weak points and fallability.
Friendship does not live on advantage
But on feelings -
On the same thoughts at the same time.
Friendship must hear,
Friendship must see -
The other's happiness, expectation and grief.
To open yourself for the other, to talk to him,
To be ready to simply listen to him.
To hope for the other, to live with him.
To swear him eternal loyalty,
Not to grudge the other something,
Even if you are losing it for yourself.
To love him as he is,
Just because he moves your heart.
Friendship develops in times of gladness,
It stands the test in times of solitude.
And if it is a true and deep friendship,

She was going to help Tails with a project of some sorts. He didn't explain what they were going to do, but he said it was important. It was odd because Tails would always explain his projects to Amy first. She didn't think about it to long and got changed. She wore a white v-neck with red stripes, dark blue jean shorts, and some brown boots. She kept her now long hair down and straight and had her red headband on her head. She went dow

I see the dark circles under your eyes
Why am I awake

I give you one last kiss

I hug my knees to my chest
Closing my eyes
I take a breath
Can barely think
blood made of ink
I bite my lips
Stumble to a stand
still shut eyes
I reach out a hand
Claws grab for me
I force myself not to run
Slowly open my eyes
You are the one
I choke on a sob
You fold me in your arms
I force myself not to close my eyes
Around us the sound of alarms
I look at your eyes
You whisper your last goodbye
I begin to run
Try not to think of what the injections did to you
I cant close my eyes
Knowing what you couldnt do
Running past the labs
Throwing myself through the doors
I refuse to close my eyes
What were the injections even for?
The Dawn Kingdom Chp 1 The sun just rose above the trees in the Dawn Kingdom. A young, pink, female hedgehog was still asleep in her room, throwing covers and pillows over her head to hide the bright sunlight shining directly on her pale cheeks. Her older sister, Genevieve, entered the room and smiled at her. "Get up Amelia! It's time to rise and greet the sun." Amelia, the sleeping hedgehog, picked her head up and looked at her older sister. Her hair was a mess. "But it's so early!" She said. "Come now, Amelia" Genevieve said, "You know Father likes for us to greet the sun every morning." Amelia sat up in bed, "But I usually sleep while you go and greet it with Father! And why don't you call me Amy like my friends?" Genevieve glared at her when she noticed Amelia had slept in her underwear again, "First, Father believes you are already old enough to greet the sun and have been for many years!

More than you know.
But your love for me,
Is only a show.
I’ll never understand,
What keeps me coming back.
Though you’re good with words,
You’re completely void of tact.
It must mean something,
That I still want you.
No matter what happens,
No matter what you do.
I think about you constantly,
I dream of you at night.
I’m ashamed of the images,
My mind conjures even in the light.
I’ve never said the words,
But you should know how I feel.
Do I actually need to say it,
For you to know it’s real?
Do you love me?
As I do you?
Are we both just too stubborn,
To say what is true?
I guess it’s time,
After all of these years.
To get on with it,
And conquer my fears.
I’m done being your ‘friend’,
The girl that you use.
If I voice my feelings,
Maybe I won’t lose.
So here goes nothing,
My chance at last.
It’s time for me to say it,
Or put you in the past.
It’s harder than I thought,
But maybe you feel it, too

Her mind raced through the last memories she had before passing out; the ARK, sending Shadow to Earth, and...a gunshot. That's right, she realized; she was shot as she was sending Shadow to safety. For but a moment she sank into grief. Then she realized the fate that her terminal illness had sealed for her; she was to succumb to death sooner than the others she knew. NIDS was a painful disease, so perhaps this was a blessing in disguise.
Her blood seeped through her dress. The air felt colder. She closed her eyes again

His last mission took a whole week to accomplish, but during it he called her once in a while. This time he wasn't allowed to use any kind of communication units in order not to blow his cover and his mission lasted longer.
Through all that time Amy was worrying, drowning herself in a daily routine and blankly staring at the ceiling in the evenings hoping that he was alright.
She also had some slippery doubts that the mission was merely an excuse but she tried to drive those thoughts away.

That name was changed after Rouge asked her to replace her. It was Rouge's group but when she got sick, she gave the group to the only person she could think of...Amy Rose.

And to anyone else, they would have thought that he did it because he was cruel. But they weren't him. They didn't think the way he did, and they weren't effected by her intoxicating touch the way he was. Just by the small shudders she gave when she was chilled, by the giggles she emitted when she was nervous or giddy; it made him crazy. It made him so high with emotions and he was scared witless. He was terrified of feeling so many things at once that he rationalized the best way to deal with it- the best way to stray away from this euphoric state- was to run.
Nobody had any idea how when she blinked he watched her
