Confusion, loss, among these aching pains
Again withering stalk swaying still
A feeling unfelt, floating free of barren fields
Crazy thoughts, plagued me, tormented me
Grasping about, seeking, all that lost ever be
I don't know, I can't be, Foolish dreams
Forgotten, a void within the silver stream
Of faerie made, of mortal realm be not
Did I cry, did I weep, my tears, forgot
So sought, so fought, so bought, whereth the anchor in life
Confusion, loss, ramblings forgotten, I yearn to fly
But where's the island

Why Shota and Loli are badSomething has been weighing heavy on my mind lately; The aspect of Shotacon and Lolicon.Why Shota and Loli are bad4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Please understand while reading this that this is something that is very personal to me. And please also know that I'm just a normal person. I'm not highly educated. I'm simply an eighteen year old girl. I can't use big words and I'm not very good with manipulation.
But please also know that I'm not ignorant. And I can have opinions just the same.
I feel it is important to know that one of my parents is in law enforcement. I know a lot about criminology and psychology from discussions I've had with my highly trained and knowledgeable parent.
I would also like to make it clear that I'm a strong supporter in respect and tolerance. I belive in letting people belive and do what they want to, even if I don't agree with it. The only exception to this is if people are ge

Relax, its a joke.
Its my twisted way of saying I love you.
And sometimes it means exactly what it means.
You'll piss me off and I'll flip it up
when you turn your back towards me and walk away.
I like to swear.
Its a way of releasing that anger that builds.
The f-bomb can be quite therapeutic if you say it a lot.
(Fuck, Fuck, Fuck)
And its not only for when i'm pissed off.
The f-bomb (and many other offensive phrases)
are a part of my everyday vocabulary,
simply such as "thats what she said."
Those jokes never get old.
I roll my eyes and make weird faces
when you say something I find to be idiotic.
Yes, I know, I know. That means I have an "attitude."
But I can't help it, really.
I let it be known when I think somebody
is talking out there ass.
I call you out.
Whomever you are. It could be anyone, really.
I just need to hear something that I feel deserves a reaction.
And then I react.
It really makes me itch

Sweet Childhood...Sweet childhoodSweet Childhood...2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
I remember those times when the only thing that mattered was to play, laugh and have fun WE all saw those cartoons in the mornings before school, we always played "Power Rangers" in the recess, we all enjoyed to draw and laugh for no reason we thought would be friends forever.
"Friends Forever, friend forever !" That's what I thought. I saw it in the first anime series I knew. I really thought, it would be true.
Our parents got us into different schools, only a half of us got in the same school, only a couple got into the same classroom as I, none of them talked to me again. Elementary school seemed to be good except for "those" I later met. I thought they were my friends, but they laughed at me, the made me cry I wanted to fight back but I didn't want to be bad
I still liked those cartoons, we used to see them every morning before the school, I watched them now in the afternoon after t
What is verbal abuse?What is verbal abuse?4 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Verbal abuse is a form of abuse that involves the use of words, rather than blows and punches. In a verbally abusive situation, words are used to attack, control, and inflict harm on another person. Verbally abusive behaviour goes far beyond mean behaviour; it involves inflicting psychological violence on another person, attacking the very nature of an individual's being and attempting to destroy his or her spirit. Verbal abuse can affect people of all ages and in all types of relationships. However, it is especially prevalent in marital relationships. Verbal abuse falls into many categories, including:
* Abusive anger: They would blow up at you.
* Criticizing: They make derogatory comments about your weight and figure.
* Name-calling: They called you a liar and a hypocrite.
* Threatening: They taunt you about their leaving and liking other women/men.

Te ves morir, suave...brisa de mar. Pequeños frascos de cristal bajan del cielo, mientras admiras la negra oscuridad, inmensa, que te rodea. Hay un suelo olvidado, y de muros tienes la soledad y de techo la amarga agonía. En estos compartimentos te ves a tí...ves pequeñas partes de tí, ellos son tú, vacios, peces cautivos de su amargura. En cada uno espera una muerte, lejanas de ser el orgullo de tu respiración.
Una a una dejan sentir su letal misión, sus ojos, su juzgado. Bellas cortinas de humo ahogan sus oídos, pero ellos nos se mueven...no sólo los ahogan, te ahogan a tí. En otros se comprimen las almas, las paredes de cristal comienzan a compactarse. Luchan, gritan, te miran con ojos licuados de sudor y miedo, desesperación dulce. Levantan sus piernas intentando evitar su cruel destino. Se rompen los huesos, los aullidos vagos no se pueden sentir, igual se rompen. Levantan el rostro busc

Twilight vs. Harry PotterBefore I begin I would like to clarify that I'm not either a crazy Harry Potter fan or a Twihard. I've read both series and being completely honest I loved the Harry Potter series. But when I read the Twilight series I didn't think it was that good as people make it out to be. And when I heard someone say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter I felt inspired to make a comparison and show that Harry Potter far more superior than Twilight.

SleepPerhaps it's the pressing consciousnessSleep2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
that across the world
people are at work and school
and walking sad with worry
Did people sleep
before they had to think of that?
Or perhaps it's the dreams
the ones you hate or hate to wake from
that don't offer their portents
as long as you are staring at the screen
or the printed page
or the windshield.
Or maybe there's a part that thinks
if you can just push the night clock round
Dare yourself not to close your eyes
like the everyday sun-wakers
To walk yourself through morning and beyond
the world will have to change somehow.
And the next time you give in
you will wake to something different
a place that's slightly new
and rings with intensity
Perhaps just a little better
than the night's rejected dreams.

Yo soy la que tiene que trabajar como prostituta en las calles porque nadie contrataría a una mujer transexual.

Nosotros somos los padres que enterraron el recuerdo de su hija mucho antes de tiempo.
Yo soy el hombre que murió solo en el hospital porque no quisieron dejar que mi pareja entrara a la habitación.
Yo soy el niño recogido que se despierta a media noche de las pesadillas donde me alejan de mis dos cariñosos padres, que son la única familia que he tenido.
Creo que soy uno de los que tuvo suerte, sobreviví al ataque que me dejó en coma por tres semanas, y en un año dicen que podré caminar de nuevo.
Yo no soy quien tienen suerte. Me suicidé poco antes de terminar el bachillerato.

LosingThe thing is, I lose everything.Losing2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've misplaced all the
things I own at least twice.
No thing is safe
it all slips between the threads
rough stitched fabric
of my universe.
A few weeks ago,
a pair of rose colored
They must have scampered away
from my bedside table
as I slept.
and yesterday too my class ring,
with dragon insignia
carved into its metal side,
lost so many times
I've just stopped looking.
It always turns up again
like a hungry cat.
Long ago I bid farewell
to a book of poetry
by Billy Collins,
each page dressed
in a suit of marginalia,
kissed my favorite teacup goodbye,
the pond-green one,
topography of cracks down the side,
and one sock from almost every pair
has fluttered free like a pet parakeet
through the open window.
So I hope you understand, love,
why I hold you so close,

Common Misconceptions about the Bible and LGBT1) The Bible says homosexuals will go to HellCommon Misconceptions about the Bible and LGBT2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Romans 3:23 says For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. This means that all human beings are guilty of sin, so no special group (e.g., homosexuals) are doomed to go to Hell. Anyone can make it to Heaven if they accept Christ as their personal Savior.
2) Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for being gay
The act mentioned in Genesis 19 before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed was attempted gang rape. The two angels mentioned in the passage were strangers to the city and the people of Sodom did not receive them with welcome.Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
(Ezekiel 16:48-50)It's not homosexuality that's the issue here, but inhospitality.
3) Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13 say that homosexuality is an abominationThou shalt not lie with man
Columbus: Not an American Hero Do you remember when you were in grade school? Every year we would get a day off commemorating Christopher Columbuss voyage and his discovery of America on October 12th 1492. Most of our teachers taught us that he sailed a treacherous journey to prove the earth was round. They told us that he went on three ships, the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. They would tell us about how when he discovered America, he made peace with the savage natives. What a great guy Christopher Columbus must have been. This sugarcoated image of Columbus could not be farther from the truth. Many of the facts we know about him are not true.Columbus: Not an American Hero6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

Only because of a joke that one of my fake friends either took literaly, or just put it on Facebook just for people to get mad at me.
2 days after she put it on there, people come up to me telling me lies like, "____ came to me crying", etc.
What upset me the most, was that my fake friends were going along with it (at the time they were not fake).
I was in total shock.
They alienated me, and me exbestfriend was putting every little thing I ever told her on Facebook.
Later they lied to my real friend (then and now real) until she believed them.

This guide is meant to introduce and/or inform you of this threat that is currently attacking storywritting, drawing, Original Character creation (OCs) and fandom/fanfiction in general, not to say Originality itself!
During the course of this guide, you will learn what a Mary Sue is, youll identify one when sighted and, most importantly, you will not create one and hopefully you will help others in the subject, so they dont create Mary Sues too.
I) Mary Sue 101:

Mary Sue is a title given to characters in fanfiction (and sometimes original, professional work) who are simply perfect: They are beautiful, smart, friendly, always willing to help for nothing in exchange even if they can die, powerful, important in one way or other...you get the point (I will explain on emphasis later). These characters are often created in Roleplaying forums/chatrooms or simply as OCs with a storyline
