"Will you stop worrying already!" Maka cried finally reaching her limit "I'm FINE. I've been fine for days! I even went to visit Kim for a healing and you STILL worry!"
The desert sun beat down with an overbearing brightness that seemed to accent Maka's fury. The flash in her eyes was dangerously bright and the sun-cast shadows emphasized the danger of immanent Maka-Chops. The display was truly impressive and intimidating but Soul stoically ignored it. She could chop him every step of the way for all he cared. They were still going.
They were walking towards Stein's laboratory for what would hopefully be her last check-up; at Soul's insistence. Maybe he was being paranoid. He knew Kim's healings were perfect, but he still wanted the Mad Scientist to take another look, just to be sure. Maka wanted none of it being understandably sick of infirmaries and check-ups but Soul was resolute. He rolled his eyes as Maka's rants flowed continuously. If she had this much energy to complain th
Your LoveYour eyes,Your Love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your brilliant blue sparkling eyes
How they stare into mine with such certainty,
That you love me
Your sweet dimples,
The smile that could spread over miles,
How it can make me feel happy even on the darkest days
Your pale soft hands
How you take mine with yours,
And tell me your words of wisdom,
All while staring at me with your blue scintillating eyes
Your way of bringing me in tight towards you,
How you wrap your arms around me,
And bring me in close to your face,
Close enough so I could kiss you on your adorable cheeks
Your way of giving compliments,
How you tell me you'll always care about me,
And you'll like me no matter who I am
No matter what I decide
Your technique of being gentle,
And respecting how I feel,
How you consider my feelings and try to help me,
I love you
FallingThere is no easy way out of thisFalling5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have fallen too often to rise again
Crawling on the ground, beneath my hands and knees the earth is on fire
Nothing can quench the flames soon enough
I try to look ahead but the smoke fogs my vision
The music stopped long ago, I am fighting a lost war
What remains in me is almost nothing
I wouldn't have looked at this dagger in my bruised hands
tonight it has become an option
for my tired mind, exhausted with trying
my helpless body, ridden with trials
my disappointed soul, disappointed in myself.
Watching each dream fraying to threads
hiding below the ashes
Angel's wings could not sweep it away
and now my spirit is breaking.

it's all they know.
They hide under bridges
and fire escapes,
like their fathers
and their fathers' fathers.
They know the sight
and sound of thick
black boots in hallways
and the anger of an engine
unwinding in the streets.
They remember how unfriendly
four a.m. can be,
hunching behind fences
that wait with open jaws.
And they remember
how sour fear actually tastes
when it lingers
in the back
of the throat.
Jack frostSnow fallingJack frost3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Silent in the night
For children who wake up
tomorrow with delight
Not once do they consider
that their beloved snow
isnt brought by snow clouds
but by a stranger who is unknown
A boy with hair white
As the snow in which he brings
A boy with a wide smile
As the the angles wings
In his cool hand
A wooden staff he holds
To bring the winter frost
and beautiful December snow
Nipping at your nose
is all of him you hear
And once the snowflakes gather
You know that he is near
You hear his name upon the lips
of a blowing winter breeze
Jack Frost it whispers to you
Hoping you’ll believe
But very few have ever seen
the prince of frost and ice
For so little do believe
in him being true
So I’ve come to ask you
Laying beside you in the snow
Do you believe in him?
this boy of legend and myth
~For if so then just tell me
For truely I am him
But sadly you dont see me
Like every one before
some day soon
Someone will see
will believe in me.

They don't rattle your closet doors
and scratch at your windows.
They hide in your
pill bottles and sleep
with your razors,
laughing as you choke on
the smoke from your cigarette.
They sit on the toilet
as you vomit whiskey and rum,
counting down the days
until you self-destruct.
They throw flowers on your grave
surrounded by people pretending to give a shit
and tell everyone you were so
and that it's okay, because
you're in a better place, now.

They didn't think it was a big deal, a bit odd perhaps but nonetheless nothing to worry over. He just didn't like being touched, right? It was something new to him; something that after three hundred years he'd gone without and now preferred to continue his old pattern, of course. It was something he'd need time to adjust to, similar to his adjustment of their company, or their compassion.
They didn't know how wrong they were.
Of course he hid it well. He stopped because he didn't want them to know that it hadn't bothered him. He'd pause to look because he wanted to be sure he wasn't just imagining it. He froze because he didn't want the hand to move away. And he became

But it made you smile
Would it still be a sin?
If I opened the door
But turned you away
Would you still come in?
If I sliced my skin
But it didn't hurt
Would it still be wrong?
If I acted all brave
But couldn't face it
Would I still be strong?
If I tied my noose
Around a tree's open arms
Would it be an embrace?
If I left tonight
And begged you stay
Would you still give chase?
If I committed sin
But hurt nobody
Would I be welcome above?
If I do something you hate
But only for your good
Could it still be true love?

Just because we want a heart?
Thats the only reason
Why we take things apart.
Have you any idea
How not feeling is like?
Theres simply nothing,
Like its an empty void.
We do make use of others
But is that such a big deal?
Sure it may not be nice,
But its not like you never do.
Why is it so difficult
To let us have what we want?
Yet you chose to play hero
And now we are all none.

Swirls of hue like memories
Taint the purity of the once white rose
Innocently prevailing a imagery
A image of the known
These rainbowish flurries of color
Paint a ignorant mindset once again
Covering over the corruption
With their technicolor ways
How my dreams fade
Dwelling beneath that rose of life
When they will ever bud again
I shall not be aware
A colorful life in a hand
That can be crushed by a simple grasp
Has a value of far more then such
Therefore resist the urge to touch
The technicolor rose of life.

As the Wheel Turns
Snips and Snails were dripping sweat as they struggled to drag along the heavy wooden cart that dug into the ground. The cart plowed up the dirt and left a sizable trench in its wake. They looked at one another, tired and worn out from pulling the new tyrant of ponyville to the edge of the forcefield. They stopped for a moment to take a quick break. As soon as they had stopped, a glowing red whip snapped at their backsides from mid-air.
"Pull you fools!" the whip snapped it at them twice more. "Somepony set off the magic forcefield and Trixie intends to punish them!" shouted Trixie as she prepared to whip her subjects once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

You picked up the match box, your hands trembling. Pulling out a match you stared down at the box at your feet.
It was filled to the brim with pictures. Pictures of you laughing, smiling with a man you no longer loved.
You flicked the match against the box, staring for a moment at the flame that appeared. Nudging the box further into the fireplace, you flicked the match in.
The pictures slowly burned, the gray smoke looking as heavy as your heart felt. Well, how it used to feel, now you were numb to emotion.
You lit another match, running the tips of your fingers through the flame.
"Love! I'm home!"
You flicked that match into the fireplace. His voice used to make your spirits lift, have you running for the door.
"Love?" He peeked his head into the living room and grinned sheepishly.
"Sorry I was late again. My job, you know how it is."
You nodded, not bothering to get up. He sat next to you, loosening his tie.

It was a beautiful night. The crisp breeze gently blew, and stirred the long blades of grass in the MeadowClan territory. Pale rays of moonlight lit the ground. A she-cat and a tom were walking together. The black rosettes on the she-cat's white fur shone in the moonlight.
"I love you." purred the jet black tom, his eyes filled with love for his mate.
Leopardmoon, the she-cat, stepped closer to the tom and gently licked his cheek. "Echostorm, I love you, too."
The couple finally arrived at their favorite spot. They laid side by side at the edge of the cliff, watching the stars above twinkle and shine.
"I always like it out here. Just me and you, laying side by side on this cliff," mewed Leopardmoon.
"Yeah. And watching the stars together. And talking to each other for hours," said Echostorm.
Caught in the moment, the two stared into each others eyes, as a gentle wind swirled around the couple, shielding them from the rest of th
Dear Jack FrostDear Jack Frost3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jack, when I was a little girl, I would look out my window during winter and watch the snow fall. I had a weak constitution so I was never allowed to go out and play in the snow or I would catch pneumonia. I'd watch the snowflakes fall from inside my room and thank you for them rather than Santa Claus. When I was sick I'd make little paper snowflakes for you and give them to my parents to hang on our tree outside. When I was lonely I'd draw pictures in the frost on my window. I remember you would occasionally open my window to let in a perfectly formed snowflake as if to say, "Look at the beautiful thing I made for you." When I turned 19 my best friend died and I had lost all hope. Yet at the funeral, even though it was in September, you made it snow for me. When I took my own life the last words to leave my lips were, "I'll always believe in you Jack Frost." And I meant it. My only wish is that you remember me.

knowing that no one else will.
And I may have a sour attitude,
But my beauty strikes chills.
They say I’ll end out alone,
But who needs a man
When you’re pretty on your own?
It’s true, I’m full of myself.
But I can’t say I’ll change my ways.
I don’t see why I should settle
When no one will ever stay.
I’m alone, that’s that.
I’ve come to terms that I’m
worth as much as a nasty sewer rat.
I am stunning,
But my mind is gross.
I’m aware, and insecure of that fact,
So don’t blame me when I boast.
Don’t blame me for loving myself,
Because damn it, someone’s got to.
I don’t have an ounce of the potential
That I stage in front of you.
I have no potential,
No love, no flame.

Dead InsideDead Inside9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I feel the tears forming
Sitting in my eyes
But no matter what I think of
I can not cry
I feel drowsy
And am hardly awake
But no matter what I do
I can not fall asleep
I feel fatigued
And feel unstable when I walk
But no matter how uneasy I get
I don't want to eat
I feel depression setting in
That's causing this insanity
But no matter what is happening
I can't help my smiling
I'm slowly becoming numb
I feel dead inside
I feel as if my soul has left me
I'm just a body, acting on it's own
A smile on my face
With actual feelings unknown
I don't really care
What happens to me
I feel as if I'm already fading
My life is deafening
I'm already on the edge
What does it matter if I'm pushed
I'm walking past the rail
That earlier I broke
And I'm looking over the edge
Wondering if I should jump,
Because I've become numb
And I feel dead inside
I feel as if my soul has left me.
So why be alive?

You collect so many
Some are lost
Some are found
Some are earned
But they are all the same
Pretty pieces of metal
The more you have
The wealthier you are
Family is not blood

Friends are your real family
One will be your mother
One your father
Several will be your siblings
Protective ones are the eldest
And the others are the youngest
But they are your family
And no matter what I will be there for you. I will be your older sister when you need someone to lean on. I will be your younger sister when I get weak or you need someone to be silly with. I will be your mother when you need advice and need motivation. Just remember we are a family. Through thick and thin and we will always be one. Now, go forth my family! And when you get tired and need help I will carry you on my back.
