The day was humid, the sun was still high
While I waited for the gray mini van
Hundreds of colorful cars sped right on by
Finally they came; one red and one with tan
Both were hyper and fuzzy, a boy and a girl
With light brown eyes and noses of dark pink
The red stayed, while up his sister did curl
On a blanket alone; both small as mink
My puppy was brave and showed not his fear
For he whimpered only once before he slept
Agile was he, like all kinds of brother deer;
Only loving and he was never unkempt
Guarding me from things that were proved harmful,
Always there, my dear beloved dog Carmal

Lovino skipped down the sidewalk. He was a big boy now, almost six; and he had wandered away from his nonna (grandma) and his fratellino (little brother) in favor of chasing a stray butterfly. His stubby legs tried their best to keep up with the fluttering wings, but eventually, Lovino was left behind as the little trickster flew up into the sky. The little Italian pouted and plopped down on the hard cement.
It wasn't fair damnit, he had almost caught it too.
His dark chocolate orbs looked around the street as he tried to look for his family. But as his nonna didn't materialize on the desolate street to scold him; he realized he was lost. T

Round 2: Part 3
The rain had slacked off by the time the remaining herd of dogs and I had made it to yet another building. My fur was as soaked as I believed it could possibly get. My body felt heavier and on the verge of exhaustion. The strange priest seemed to feel much the same, his extra pelt appearing to weigh him down. Yet he did not bother to take the skin off. Instead he simply kept walking, his face held low under the pressure of the second head.
We stopped as the alpha dog picked two more pairs to enter the new human den. Harry had been sent out last trip, despite his detests. In his absence, I kept c

Round 3: Part 8
The soft patter of feet brought me back to life. I could hear their steps coming closer, their claws tapping on the cold ice. Their murmured voices filled my ears but I could not make out their words. My mind was still deep in the darkness, not bothering to fight its way out. I heard the steps reach me and felt the presence of many warm bodies. They paced around me, their voices dictating their location. Nothing happened, though. Not at first.
A warm, wet nose prodded my forehead. I ignored it, trying to slip back into the peacefulness I had succumbed too. It bothered again, the prod even hard

To find their own purpose in life
One must chose a path of their own
Not the paths set up by someone else
Sometimes the path you choose maybe rough
But if you go through with it willingly
You would eventually find happiness in the end

Who lives four thousand miles away.
I can't get her off my mind,
It pains me everyday.
It's all that lingers in my brain,
I can't sleep because of you.
My brain is constantly tortured,
By the thoughts that cycle through.
I always like to see you smile,
And make hearts with your hands.
I always love returning those favors,
And seeing that smile again.
I would give up anything,
To spend my life with you.
Although, life is relatively short,
I believe we'll make it through.
I wait for the day that I fly out,
And finally get to see you.
All I want you to know for now,

Blueberry MassacreI voraciously ate the Blueberry pancakes, one by one! The parent pancakes ran for their children, sadly, I had gotten there first. They had all been swallowed. They all gave up as my teeth descended. As my bloodthrist for Blueberry pancakes caused chaos across the table with pancake parents and children alike, havoc spread terror into the beady little blueberry eyes of theirs, as the survivors ran farther and farther, however... There was no escape from my wrath and the craving for the blueberry. I must chase them down. I must devour them. My life depends on them.

Reality of His DreamsReality of His Dreams2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There I was, sitting and waiting,
And thinking and wishing and thinking of creating...
A still image, one of this world and mine,
Intricately interlocked within space and time,
A country of fields and of children, who were playing,
And of those trees in the wind Oh so gently swaying,
I dreamed in this night,
Of under so much shining light,
We'd never know that all of this,
Could be our now, our past or our bliss,
Then I woke up,
Picked up a canvas,
And I started to draw,
I looked out of the window,
And to my amazement, that's what I saw.

I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
And should I die before I wake,
Then pray the Lord my soul to take.
Now then you lay me on this bed,
A pool of blood lay by my head.
And with the gun held in my hand,
And so it ends, my master plan.
So now you lay me down to rest,
In God's hands, He sees my life fly past.
And since that lonely, faithful night,
In God's eyes, He saw my plight.
And since I died before I woke,
He had every right, my soul He took.

"Any Other Way"
It was six days after the tournament that I left early in the morning with Icemoon. I walked up to the roof with Garnet, who relieved Zilia of her night-long duty of watching over the Bell Dragon eggs. We were still trying to figure out something to do with them so they didn't have to be exposed. So far, there were no threats aimed at them, and there had been no signs of Steven since his obvious injury.
Ember had checked up on us several days before. He had stayed the night and we had spent some time with him before sending him off again. All he had learned about Steven was that he was in a bad condition.

SuffocatingShe sits each morning, staring. Emptiness fills her soul, the fight in her eyes gone. An empty waste land sitting alone, no one to rely on. Trust, that is something she knows nothing of. Each day is a new struggle just to keep the very breathe in her lungs. She knows she must fight on, someone somewhere needs her. But each day, that voice telling her to live weakness, replaced with the words of everyone else.Suffocating1 month ago in Short Stories More Like This

You smiled and it vanquished the numb

The nature has once again made us happy
with the beauty she bestow in her womb
The rain drops drooling down the leaves
and falling down to sleep blissfully in her tomb
The beauty so breathtaking
so encaptivating is the fall

A body stands motionless in a moon-lit field. A spark at the feet of the shadowed figure sets off a small fire. The fire slowly begins to engulf the body, emitting an eerie glow as it climbs. The flame, having now covered the legs in its warm glow, moves on to the upper body. The body convulses as the pain from the flame grows unbearable. The convulsions continue until the flames have covered the all but the face if the figure, at which time it drops to its knees. Looking upwards the figure cries out, "FORGIVE ME!"

To see you smile is to be happy.
To see you go is to die,
To argue with you is sadness,
To see you cry is to be torn.

To see the pity in people's eyes is to feel ashamed,
To see my life wrecked is to be ruined.
