Vampire DreamsI never thought of vampiresVampire Dreams7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
until i loved one
His eyes were violets
His hair of black silk
His pale,pale skin
so icy cold, but refreshing
My rose petal lips to his
And his arms around me
Only space between us
is his thirst for my blood
A drip here and there
I want to join him
I want to live with him forever
Vampires, oh mighty vampires
grant me this one selfish wish?
My family hates him
my friends encourage me
We ride off into the sunset
my favorite dream of all time
He has left
But he promises to return
With strength enough
to let me become one of them
The sky is bleak
But i can see the moon rising with his faithful return.
The DeserterI've wandered far too long tonight.The Deserter2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm left adrift, the coward's flight -
an outcast from society.
I close my eyes and dream of thee.
Stripped of my honor and my name;
accused by all, I bear the blame.
This blasted heath from which I flee -
I close my eyes and dream of thee.
The greatest prize for which I strived,
my fellow soldiers gave their lives.
Three white feathers given to me -
I close my eyes and dream of thee.
Branded guilty, without bail,
handcuffed in irons, cast in gaol-
no longer shall I wander free.
I close my eyes and dream of thee
And after sundown, cut me loose,
an offering to the hangman's noose.
If there's a God, he'll hear my plea -
I close my eyes and dream of thee

Something, or should you say someone, woke you up by yelling in French.
"Franics…. What. Do. You. Want?" you said angrily, being awoken quite harshly.
"Ma Cherie, you have school now! Get ready!"
"Oh yeah, I guess we do," you said whipping a brush out of your hair. Roughly, you pulled the brush through, getting all the tangles out.
Arthur suddenly appeared, rushing down the stairs, still tying his scarf around his neck. Both of you slid your shoes and jackets on, ready for school.
"Ready, love?" Arthur greeted you.
"Sure am," you said with a rare smile.

Hours have passed and the sun continues to sink lower and lower before it will reach the western horizon. Anxiously waiting, I continue to watch Persephone as the light in her smile and the fluid bounce in her step seems to have vanished. Her harvesting rituals seem as if it is her first time encountering a newborn seed, as if she's never done this before. Countless times she even appeared to be distracted, as if something in the distance has caught her eye and she can't seem to bring herself back to earth. During one of these spells, she happened to cut her finger on a rose bush she had been tending to, something she has never done before.
Persephone has always been very careful and even graceful with her work. As any artist does, she takes her time to make sure that it is simply perfection. She would harvest all day and not have a speck of soil on her or her light yet modest outfit. But today, her flawless rosy hued pink skin was turning into a scarred and bloody me

"Hey (Name). What the hell happened to you? You look like someone tried to mug you," someone said from the other side of the room.
Looking up, I saw Arthur. I sighed in relief. "If only you knew," I gasped out.
He smirked at me while flipping through a stack of music sheets. "Sounds interesting. It's not that frog trying to rape you is it? They usually leave you alone though."
I chuckled sheepishly and rubbed the back of my head guiltily. "Usually they wouldn't know I exist, but... Well... I kinda made a bet with them..."
Arthur turned to me and blinked with a blank expression apparent on his face. "... As Envy," I finished.

The one word that describes all of our feelings.
When you left this earth, and all of us, you left us with wet, teary eyes and grieving hearts. And yet, there are still smiles on our faces. Just remembering you is enough. Remembering the joy, the laughter, and the beautiful art. You have left our souls forever filled with the happiness, the smiles, and the fun that you brought to us. For that, we thank you and hope that you have made it safely to the castle in the clouds. I hope that you can see the impression that you've made in the people on earth. You will be dearly missed by those who knew you well, those who knew you only a bit, and those who wished they had a chance to. We will always miss and remember you.
Rest in peace.

Life shrouded in mystery from the very beginning
Won't like to admit it, but must keep on winning
His powers of deduction will leave your head spinning
You have no choice but to follow him blind
His boundless intelligence cannot be confined
Although without crouching, it shall surely decline
About forty percent, if you must define
So please, let him sit his own way!
Not quite a professional, his methods will stray
From the norm, but everyone will still obey
To ensure that Kira will be made to pay
He deserves to rot down below
Hair a mess and eyes with dark shadow
Never seen the sun - his skin pale like snow
Why he loves tennis, we'll never know
It's clear he's a little off beat
A shy boy; as sweet as the food that he eats
Cake, biscuits and candy are more than just treats
Gets strange looks from everybody he meets
Although he is nothing if not forthright
With care and caution he enlists to his plight

1. Naruto is boastful, arrogant, loud, obnoxious, attention needy.... his attitude is a real turn off and is the last person you'd want on your team. Naruto had no idea how to be a friend much less a team player.
It's really little wonder he had no friends in his peer group.
Naruto is that kid in school who wants to prove himself so much that he tries too hard and ends up coming across as really annoying.
Naruto, in all seriousness, at the start is very much like Napoleon Dynamite, except the movie makes it funny (at times almost painful) from an outside POV, while in Naruto we see things from Naruto's POV.
Also like ND, Naruto protects himself from reality throu

The job he currently had was that of a mercenary, a hired killer. Well seeing as it was only one person really he had been tracking and killing there wasn’t really a word for what he was. The company he’d been hired by was a cloning company.
In recent years companies like that had been on the rise, seeing as people found it useful to be able to clone themselves several times and let them do the brunt of the work whilst they lazed about at home. But there was something special about your case.
You’d been cloned over about 1,000 times. 1,536 to be precise.
This hadn’t at all been intentional and it was what sent that company in particular bankrupt. And for that little fact they wanted you to settle your bill. Which wasn’t fair, but then again all Ludwig had to
A Deal with the DemonShe lay beneath the sun's searing flareA Deal with the Demon2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her blood dripping
Into the silver river
Running down her cheeks
And through her hair
"Goodbye," she told the world
Once, this girl was a wealthy princess
Once she was too precious and priceless
Once, she wore the most beautiful dresses
She danced in balls of golden floors
They say the princess made a horrible deal
A deal with the demon of the gold and steel
They say the demon would give her a wheel
Of gold and diamonds if she let him "heal"
Her poor tired soul
The princess agreed for the wheel was tempting
In a matter of seconds her soul was empty
And the demon took over and was now attempting
To rule the whole kingdom and run it his way
The kingdom was corrupted, turned upside-down
And the king was murdered right beneath his crown
And the farmer was homeless and the doctor a clown
And the people rebelling, destroying each town
So they hunted the princess then left her to drown
Now the demon believed that his princess was useless
So he left her
What is Love?What is Love?:What is Love?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What is love but a simple impulse
An electrical signal that comes from the brain.
What is love but a debilitating sickness
It weakens us utterly from the waves of pain.
To what do we owe the pleasure of love
Does it come from a matter of personal taste?
To what do we owe the pain of love
As though all of our efforts are put to waste...
Why do we seek to fall in love
Is it because we fear a death alone?
Or perhaps there is a darker reason
One for which we need to atone...
Rationalise carefully, your reason for love
Perhaps the truth is deeper than you think.
Is your partner a genuine object of affection
Or simply a piece of the missing link?
Love can be a wonderous anchor
It brings us down to the safety of sanity
But abuse it once, and you will suffer
Such is the gift of humanity...
"Yet even with these weighty words, I am still a slave to love..."
