SummerNights spent on the swing set,Summer2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Wishing on the stars.
Lying in the road,
Screaming at strange cars.
Truck beds full of laughter,
Basking in the sun.
Playing games with flowers,
Innocent, childish fun.
Dancing with the raindrops,
Swimming in the creek.
Songs sung from the rooftop,
Hours of hide and seek.
Monster drinks and Hershey bars,
Games of tag until the dawn.
Dreaming of the future,
Remembering moments gone.
Seasons come and seasons go,
Present time becomes the past.
No matter how I wished it so,
Summer could not last.
Self Harm?A scar,Self Harm?6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In silence drawn,
Dont be a fool,
Why cut and burn
Behind closed doors,
Springs to mind
When I say:
Are you repulsed?
You are ignorant.
Learning for learnings sake,
Pain for pains sake.
A flicker of flame,
The glint of a blade.
Should anyone find out
My little secret.
Scars are little.
The surface heals.
We cut skin?
Scars are visible,
Pain to show the world.
And you dont realise,
Self-harm cuts deeper.
Don'tPlease, don't tell her that she's alluring;Don't2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
don't tell her so just because you know how to lure and malevolently make use of her malleable heart, to form and fit into a ring on your plum-tipped, pinky finger- you duly deserve fetters.
Please, don't tell her that she's beautiful;
if only just to have your way and peruse through the glossy pages of her life like it were some casual magazine on a random subway stand- she's better off without your grimy fingerprints.
Please, don't tell her that she's captivating;
don't use terms of endearment when you don't even understand why they should be said to her in the first place- you were never worthy of her devotion and demure disposition.
Please don't tell her that she's divine;
especially since you knew of the years I spent in misery, seeking solace from the pounding of my heart- by God's grace and mercy, please, pass her honey-haired, olive-skinned love unto me.
More than a HeroMore than a Hero3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I need more than a hero, more than a friend,
I need someone who'll stay with me, until the very end.
I need strong hands, and an open mind.
I need honesty, no hidden secrets and nothing to find.
I need a caress like silk, and a bullet-proof heart.
I need someone to end with, the same as the start.
Someone to cauterize my wounds, and rub a thumb on my cheek.
Someone that will hold me steady on this teetering peak.
Someone to fly me away up into the stars.
Someone to take to the away's and the far's
Someone to love and to always be near.
Someone who's kiss that can make the cruel world disappear.
I don't need a man in a cape.
Not a man who's gone in a flash, i wanna take it slow.
I need someone to love.
so much more than a hero.
As I inaudibly crumbleThe first thing that I can assure you of is the fortitude of my soul: I am a pact so strong that even the hurricane which caused my house to tear apart couldn't budge me. So strong, that even the earthquake that cracked the face of my school building couldn't chip me. So strong, that no amount of tidal waves could crash and break into my walls, my being. I am a pact made of several precious trinkets, letters and colors bound fervently. My frame has become a watchtower and my spirit, its sentry; I fulfill set duty. I am a pact so strong that I crave for certain commotion over what it is that I am, I wear and bare my vanity. I am a thrill seeker, a bungee jumper. I thrive off adrenaline rushes brought about by the feeling of close calls, the always present possibility of a snapping of the cord, a real potential to, not just fall, but truly crash and burn from grace. I am of a life wanting to be fully fueled, felt and fulfilled. I am a draconian as an experienced freedom fighter.As I inaudibly crumble3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

It was a calm morning as usual this time of year. It was spring. People of Meiji era were living their peaceful lives with the usual slow speed. They were enjoying their lives in the new Japan. In the Japan where war was there no more. One young man with long red hair and simple clothes was sitting by the bridge watching the river passing by peacefully. Kenshin was always there when he needed to calm down. He was just gazing at the river sometimes subconsciously caressing his katana sword that was hanging from his girdle. It was a memory of his past. His past was full with blood and death but he didn't want to remember it. But still there should be something to remind him of this past. This sword was special. It was his Reverse-blade sword. The ex-killer Battousai had sworn not to kill ever again so his sword couldn't cut from the outside part of the blade. It was the sword to protect his loved ones. The sword to repay all the countless lives he had taken. Although some of the elder on

Dance of Wind X - FINAL
A Melody of Hope
Ezreal was returned to Heaven's Peak and immediately he was lifted by a pair of golden-feathered harpies. "We will carry you to Andeka Fortress. The world outside has fallen to darkness the sun has been blotted out by the power of the new King's dark spirits. His armies approach the bordering countries... but his shadow is far more dangerous than he." One of the harpies spoke as she helped carry Ezreal out of Heaven's Peak.
They flew through the clouds, and once they reached the outside world there was nothing but darkness to be seen. The sun was no more; only a thick shroud of darkness remained in its place. This is terrible... Ezreal thought.
Time passes and the harpies arrive with Ezreal at Andeka Fortress; a great storm is raging over the city and the smell of fresh blood fills the air. "We wish you luck, Ezreal. Farewell," The harpies said with a bow and then went on their way, vanishing into the stormy darkness.

A baby cry filled the small, mad-made house. Another female scream of pain and then only the small baby was left crying. Akefia approached. He was staggering and his plump, children's hands were stretched in front of him to keep his balance. The three-year-old child ran to the bed where his mother was panting heavily and his father was above her.
"It's a girl " he said.
His mother seemed a bit worried with his cold declaration
"What what is it ?" she panted.
The elder man showed her the baby. Akefia went closer. The baby was unique! She was white like milk! No other Egyptian in Kul Elna, no, no other Egyptian in the entire Egypt had such pale complexion! Her little hair was white like clouds! The woman took the baby in her hands and lifted it with ecstasy.
"This is a sign! Look at her! She looks like Akefia! She has the same hair! She is like him! She and our son are meant to be!"
The baby opened her little eyes to reveal two orbs blue like sky!

Vampire Yami Ch 35Yami was standing by a large window and was looking outside without having something specific in mind. To tell the truth he had so much in his mind that he didn't know what to think first, like the Fallen ones' behavior for example. He still couldn't take it out of his mind that someone could be controlling them. Then he remembered Mokuba. That beaten up little body that didn't have the strength even to shiver inside his dark, wet cell. He turned his face inside, towards the walls with the hieroglyphics. He was feeling something. It was as if they were calling him… "Come". Like hypnotized he responded. He touched the wall with his palm. Then, like a cinematographic movie, another image passed before his eyes. It was so strange and at the same time so familiar! It was that child that looked like him. This time it was a bit younger, around seven years old, and it was running inside the garden laughing and yelling happily.Vampire Yami Ch 352 years ago in Horror More Like This

Izaya had suggested that Shizuo take Psyche as he rarely gets a chance and it would be nice. Here, Shizuo didn't need to worry about people provoking him as he wasn't really well known, if they were in Ikebukuro then that would be a different matter entirely. He was actually glad that he could have a little peace and quiet here. Psyche was definitely having fun here with him. Shizuo had always thought about wanting kids of his own, but he wouldn't mind not having them if he still could spend time with Psyche. It was a good thing that he and Izaya didn't fight anymore, they still called each other names and use insults but they didn't attack one another.All This Time- Chapter Four2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Well, considered like that... You're right." Calemvir sighed.

Shizuo wakes up a little slow but joins in with Izaya's chuckling when he notices Psyche. "I ended up in my bed by magic! I fell asleep on the couch but I woke up in my bed! It was magic!" Izaya was right when he said it was cute to see Psyche jumping up and down talking about magic. Psyche had taken to repeating 'magic' over and over. Well that is until Izaya pulled him onto his back and began tickling him.

Izaya sighed again before replying, he looked a little annoyed too. "Today Kaori tried to say that the night the boys were conceived was completely consensual. All I had to say in retaliation was that I was too drunk to really know what was going on, the judge agreed that it constituted as rape." I wonder if Izaya would press charges for that, though I doubt it seeing as the event doesn't seem to have affected him much. I can tell he is happy about being a father too; otherwise he wouldn't be going to court everyday fighting to keep Psyche here with him.All This Time- Chapter Eleven2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

into a barely muddied, ruddy hillside
powdered-sugarcoated, vanilla ice-whipped
The vivacious glory-of-the-snow
sabotages the dead silence of the season
with its vehement, blue-violet glow
Know that I see the gleaming aurora in
your laugh lines, life lines
in the palms of your hands and
pads of your feet, unfurling the unsaid
The north star becomes
a cardinal bindi on your forehead
Know that I feel you are heaven-defined
prophecies pressed into my spine
You want to whisper across my tips and capillaries
breathe in sky-blue butterflies, out sea-green envy
I want to compass through your crust and marrow
with every very ounce of streaming sanguine in me
To keep burning bridges and breaking-off roads
marooning our mauve mere of melancholy
To reclaim yourself under new wintry dawn odes
finally, fathoming the worth of the word, 'free'
The vermilion sky melted and slipped
into a half-baked, chocolate hillside
asleep in sleet, numbed and tight-lipped
