Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death. Yes, three ruled the mountains, but on the day of bleeding of the snow, they were all prey
Hurron pretended to be sleeping, w
You're Absolutely Right"Life is pain," said the dramatic emo boy, his lanky, greasy hair draped over his eye like a stage curtain half-drawn over a Shakespearean tragedy. "Life is pain. I might be healthy now, but this body will soon break down and get old and weary and rundown and broken and this young, healthy man will become a decrepit old derelict who lies in bed all day because his knees are so bad he can't walk."You're Absolutely Right7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Life is pain," insisted the black-clad emo boy, gesturing wildly at me over his cheap cut-glass tumbler of wormwood-free absinthe with its burnt-sugar louche. "Life is pain and love is a lie. My girlfriend doesn't really love me, she just think
DownfallDownfall6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And in this dark harvest of season
My life has completely lost reason,
For which or against to decide.
All lost in a savage and endless, bleak tide
In sadness and in kindness
In light and in darkness.
In a boat made of hope
I shall sail to tomorrow,
In a winding hurricane
Made of treachery and sorrow.
There's a spear, endless, and colossal spear...
Piercing, slashing though my head.
Starting somewhere in heaven,
Ending somewhere in hell.
Fighting, burning, crying, crashing.
Are the armies within.
In my head they are all thrashing.
On the heaven's and hell's whim.
To be light or to be darkness.
A perpetual array.
The Rules of Living With Roy HarperTo say that Jade was happy to stay with Roy while he got his life back together, was a plain lie. Even in the state he was in, he had rules; rules which bugged her to absolutely no end. Jade was used to doing what she wanted, when she wanted, with little regard for others. She was also known to come and go, and never stay in one place for very long. After she'd had her daughter, this made traveling from place to place a little more difficult, but Lian liked to move.The Rules of Living With Roy Harper1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

i forget what it's like
to have someone
instead of being
it feels like a premature death.
we are a bird, stuttering
through the air as our wings
i'm so tired of bleeding.
i can't continue to need you
more than you need me.
i can't continue resting my head
on my pillow at two in the morning,
after hours of furiously beating it
against my bed

i can't continue to love you
for the way you held my heart like a heart,
but held my body like a treasure.
i can't wait til love doesn't matter,

Oh, sure, we're at the bottom of the social ladder.
But to be honest with you, the view's not always better at the top.
Nerds have intellect.
Nerds have insight.
Nerds have interests.
And what do you have?
Yeah, that's what I thought.
So don't laugh we when let out our mighty "SQUEE" of delight.
Don't laugh when we dress up for movie premieres.
Don't laugh when we treat our nerdy interests as Serious Business.
Because we will laugh right back
while insulting you in a way that people like you couldn't understand if you tried.
Which you won't.
So don't trip us in the hall
or steal our nerdy
