Lord, I Am Ashamed.Sleep and ILord, I Am Ashamed.5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Have grown distant lately.
Back when the air I drank
Was more naïve,
We were friends sometimes
And sometimes enemies.
We bickered and loved
The taste of the wind,
The song of the chickadee,
The color of dreams
To warm my life.
The acres of that country
Are now reduced
To a single small lot
Encircled by a
Gray cyclone fence
That holds bitterness
Rather than keeping out
The worries of the world.
But I suppose
I don't really notice it,
Trees used to whisper to me
Of an earnest jay
Building her nest
Or of two squirrels
Caught up in the heat
But who really detects
Over so many
My own skull throbs
As if I'm diving
Down, down, deep
Into a scummy lake.
What breaks my heart
More than anything else
Is that I don't recall
My familiarity with the sky.
With silly and necessary things
To realize I've forgotten

Grave of the Fireflies
Fireflies dead and gone,
Come dancing in the moonlight
To move once again,
Spreading light wherever you fly
Forgotten souls mingle,
In your hidden red light
Looking back on the past,
Taking in every detail
Once the night is spent,
Going back to where you were put to rest
The unknown souls slowly disappear,
As the night burns away to the dawn

With a beautiful twist.
It starts on my thigh,
And ends on my wrist.
My eyes give me away,
Though there's a smile on my lips.
I want my bones to protrude,
Especially on my hips.
It's an everyday battle,
Until finally you disappear,
Because you screamed your lungs out,
But nobody wanted to hear.
Cry yourself to sleep,
Another sleepless night,
Trapped in my own fucking mind.
I've been told that dreams,
Can come true.
But they forgot to mention,
That nightmares are dreams too.
So when will I wake up from mine,
Because I'm in a race against time.

And made myself a fool
To make you laugh
To make you smile
I danced and twirled about
And broke my self-esteem
All to make you laugh
All to make you look in my direction

Even when you pushed me away
Just so that you wouldn't be alone
Just so that you wouldn't forget me
You called me names
And yet I'm still here
Because I love you.
Stupidly Excited"Where are we going now?" Cian asked as he and Mercutio stepped out into space.Stupidly Excited3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
His friend shrugged slightly, brushing a hand through his chestnut colored hair. Mercutio seemed rather smiley, but uncharacteristically quiet since their hysteria over the fish bubbles. Neither was going to mention the one they had in tow with them. It was a larger bubble, with a spiky blue fish and school of purple fish swimming around it. The fish were unfazed by their change in location and simply swam. Neither was sure what they were going to do with their bubble of fish, but they were going to keep it and that was that.
"I've not made a decision yet," Mercutio admitted. "Was there somewhere specific you wanted to go?"
"Of course not."
"Don't start," Cian frowned as he pointed an accusing finger at Mercutio. "I just crossed the universe for you. The least you could do is give me some credit."

I'm caged up, And need to be set free.
I call for you,
But you don't come.
What do I need to do?
Fall on my knees and bleed.
Can't you see I'm hurt enough,
And all I need is help.
I call for you!
I scream for you!
But you don't come to my rescue...
What will it take?
To see me dead!
Will you notice then?
The pain I felt,
How lost I was!
Will you notice all my injuries...
The cuts and bruises.
What about the suicide attempts?
Will you count how many there were?
Or will you stand there,
And say what a beautiful girl she was,
When all you did was bully me...

While church bells ring.
Don't turn back,
On this beautiful day.
Just two words,
that's all you have to say,
and then you'll be on your way.
Finally your courage paid off,
Now there's no turning back.
You asked her,
And she said yes.
Now you're staring in her eyes,
In her beautiful lace dress.
It's my turn now,
Oh gosh, what am I doing.
Why am I walking away?
But I don't listen...
Open those church doors,
And stare at evil in the eyes,
With teared black wings,
And a vicious smile.
"You've had your fun,
And now you must pay,
Fore you found love,
And that was your last day."
Chapter 1: Flame PointsThe sound of water encircled the area. The subtle echo of the liquid splashing against the river stones, sent an array of euphoria to her ears. The piercing heat of the morning star kissed the skin of her face, as the frigid wind caressed her body.Chapter 1: Flame Points3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A loud crash erupted, the sound of the peaceful water being pushed out of its safe abode.
A piercing tone called out to her, “Butter! Please come in the water with me!”
She instantly recognized the voice belonging to her twin brother Scotch. Her cat ears twitched from the annoyance of her brother disturbing her tranquility. She peered one of her eyes open to see him drenched in the crystal like waters of Euteria. She couldn’t resist as the urge overtook her and the lips upon her face curved into a smile, her unmistakable feline fangs exposing themselves. The saliva dried quickly in the morning air.
“You are so silly brother, you are a walking contradiction.” She said, her smile growing wider.

In the morning, the postman comes around seven. Maggie would give her usual warning gruff from her spot on the rug, her head raised, her ears perked. When the mail car sputtered away, Maggie would bring herself to rise slowly and pad to the window where she'd probe the glass curiously with her nose. Seeing nothing, she would return to her well-worn spot and drop like a sack of mail.
Every day, a little death
Every death, a little day
There came a time where I realized I couldn't see the curiosity in Maggie's eyes. Sure, she'd sniff around the yard excitedly, or wag her tail when we went to the park, but the way she looked at thingslike the way she slowly moved her head to watch me cookis like she looked through them. When I dropped something, she'd follow it lazily with her eyes and then lay her had comfortably on her paws, unaffected. Even when I called her over, she rose with effort, and sniffed the food briefly before gently lapping it up. She looked a

I sat on my bed and looked at the clock; it was already 10 pm. I have officially two hours left until my best friend’s birthday. He was turning twenty-six and I wanted his birthday to be a bang.
I sighed as I laid down on my bed. I had already planned for the surprise party a week earlier and we were already set. I just wasn’t sure if he’ll be able to come to the party—Reiji is an idol so I was sure he was weighed down with work.
Suddenly, my smart phone rang, the tune of Bright Road blaring from the speaker. I reached over to my bedside table from where I lay and patted the surface for the phone. I felt cool metal under my palm and grabbed the device. Without glancing at the screen, I accepted the call. “Hello?” I said.

Staring at the other girl, the one that's not alone
Girl with skin that glistens, with the eyes of crystal seas
Grin of shining diamonds and a laugh like a disease
Flashes just a glance and soon, she's every trouble's cure
She has everything… and No One's off to be like her.
Eating turns into a crime, she'd rather be away
Thrusting fingers down her throat to make herself okay
Watching as her very bones are seen behind her flesh
There she drowns in tears, for she has not yet seen success.
Minutes turn to hours, and these hours turn to days
Every moment slipping, slowly fading into grey
Rapidly, her body turns to nothing but her bones
As she fights for beauty, as she battles for the throne.
Broken hearts must learn to beat, and this she came to know
Learning it the hard way when her heartbeat grew too slow
Yet, she somehow managed still to shine from what's within
Lying in her casket with her hidden, unseen sin.

You pressed your cheek to his back between his shoulder blades and sighed contentedly. This was not how you envisioned your life; as a matter of fact this is the exact opposite of how you thought your life would be.
Certainly there are a few hundred girls who see themselves running away from home and riding on a motorcycle to who-knows-where with their ‘boyfriends’, but that was never your first plan of action… and mutant never fit into the equation at all.
After covering a great distance Logan stops at another fast food joint and you get off the bike and stretch. “Thank god I was getting ravenous…”
Logan dismounts the bike and nips at your ear growling, “For what exactly…”
Shivering you kiss his cheek and look at the restaurant, “Food goofball… come on…”

Is it hard to conceive?
Draw in your last breath, then-
Your last breath will leave.
Isn't it strange to think,
That there's a timer above your head?
A countdown you can't see,
That finishes when you're dead.
Don't you ever wonder,
What it'll be like when you're gone?
I bet the world will keep on spinning.
There will be another dawn.
But the harsh reality behind it-
We're all going to die.
There's no reason to try to fight it
Not even to question why.
It makes me wish that I could have a little more to give,
Because I'm not afraid of how I'll die...

Heck, you didn’t want to open your eyes. Taking out your hand from under the blanket, you looked at the time. “10:30 A.M.” You read, reaching for the comforter and placing it on your head, blocking the light. You got a whiff of the aromatic smell of the blanket, puzzled by the fact that this wasn’t your scent. “What the heck? Whose...bed am I in?

The two of you had to stop for gas and you ran to the bathroom feeling sick. Logan had watched you worriedly but he’d stayed to fill up the bike for now.
You had made your way to the ladies room quickly and emptied your stomach violently. The sun had made you sick, so sick that it hurt to even think about going back outside. Tears streamed down your face involuntarily from the pain and you started to feel a hatred for you mutation. It had made you this way…
Before, you had loved the outdoors. You had loved at least sitting in the light and just feeling the warmth of light. The thought made you cry a little more as you heaved.
Finally, you had nothing left to throw up and you made your way to the sink to wash away the worst of it. There had been no one else in the bathroom thank goodness, and really very few people at this particular gas station.
As you looked in the mirror at your tear covered face, the b

Reminiscing, I always ask that to myself. Do I remember that day?
I remember, that you were crying back then while I stand on the other corner, being surrounded by people, laughing with them, conversing with them, talking nonsense with them. I remember that I knew you were that girl who was always alone, who was always bullied, and was always ignored, even by the teacher. People warned me about that girl. That if i create contact, I might fall down in society. That I might become a monster, a ghost, a nobody. I remember my best friend warned me, that no one would love me anymore if I created contact with her, while my other friend warned me I would lose my hard-to-get popularity. I followed them, and became who i am because of them. I was really happy with my life back then actually.... but it always hurt to see you crying, being thrown by papers by those bullies whom I call friends. I can never take that, nor survive just seeing

What had been going through Berwald's head when he had made you go with Lukas all on your own? It was bad enough that the two of you got off on a terrible start when Emil was inside your heart. Now that the dragon had been captured at the cost of a few mistakes—though you couldn’t be entirely sure if it was completely your fault—the line between your relationship was holding together by a micro-sized thin spider web ready to break at the right breath of the wind—or the wrong words.
Still, if Berwald had intended for your trip to only consist of you and Lukas, then it couldn’t hurt to try to patch any holes that might have shattered in your bonding—not that there was much of a bond to begin with. In that case, you would have to build it up even stronger than before. Whether he liked it or not, you were going to have to earn Lukas’ trust if you were going to successfully pull off a rescue mission for Emil. You first decided to try it

You carefully sit up in bed, trying to make little to no noise so that Logan can get a little more sleep. As your crawling out of bed you look over at him and pause. He seems so peaceful while he’s asleep; he’s not loud or moving very much, so for a moment you just watch him sleep.

You jumped and grabbed your chest, “Holy crap!”
You saw him crack a smile, “You’re not too good at sneaking…”
“I was just going to go and find something to eat,” you say after your heart stops pounding.
