I'm sorryWhen you tore my heart outI'm sorry3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And threw it to the ground
That laughed at me
I reached out
To touch you
And you shattered
I know why too
It's because you were
And you thought that
If you accepted
Then everything would crash
But as it turns out
You were wrong
Because when I reached out
And you rejected me
All on your own
I pick up
Now I'll have to
Buy a new mirror
VoidThere's a word for what I'm feelingVoid3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I could be poetic
I could be romantic
I could be dramatic
But I won't
Because this sort of feeling doesn't deserve fancy words
It deserves hard, merciless thoughts
Feelings, opinions, emotions that would make you scream
I look around and I see blurs and blurs
Colors swirling about
I hear noises that eventually dim to a low background hum
Everything is unfocused
The exit sign
I stare at it
I feel nothing
I just look at it
While everything around me breathes with life
Bolder and bolder it taunts me
Escape it says, escape
But I can't bring myself to move my feet
I can't bring myself to run away
I'm not ready to face the world
I'm not strong enough to leave it
There's a word for what I'm feeling
Mono.One morning a black pillar appeared in the center of town, within the boundaries of the park and right outside of the library. It stood at least thirteen feet tall and was as wide as a mature oak. They deduced it was made out of some kind of polished stone. Some guessed it was obsidian; others argued it was too strong to be such a fragile stone. It could have been granite, but when was the last time you saw black granite in that quantity, and in that shape?Mono.3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"We should knock it down and drag it away!" someone shouted.
But they were too afraid to touch it.
"Why not just leave it here?" another suggested.
But they wondered what would happen if they didn't do anything at all.
Whoever put it there didn't do it alone. They'd need a truck to transport the thing, and they'd need some way to get it off the flatbed and stand it up straight. But why go to all of that trouble for a pillar of rock? Or was it part of someth

Saphira's LamentAlone in the darkSaphira's Lament7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I watch over him
On his hand my mark
My wing over him dim
He understands not
Even though he's one with me
And knows my thought
No matter where we be
After an elf he bears lust
Even though she is cold
And acts as she must
Treat him as though forever old
He sits with a downcast face
Can not he know
As I snuggle him in my embrace
That I love him so?
I want to be his mate
Instead of the bait
For Shruikan or Thorn
This Destiny of mine I mourn.
I am the last female of my race
I cannot slow a pace
To love my Rider instead of my fate
I must instead choose a dragon mate.
I cuddle him softly, closely, and see
In his dreams, reflected, an image of me
An image he treasures more than I knew
One of me, dragonet-small, spangled with dew.
Rider, I can't be your mate,
Not now, not ever, it's not my fate
I must be mother to dragon-kind
Even though against it rails my mind
But remember this one thing true
O'er all else, dear Rider- I love you.
Nothing is True: The CreedNothing is True:Nothing is True: The Creed5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If nothing is True then what can I believe in?
If nothing is True then who can I trust?
If nothing is True then where do I put my faith?
The answers are simple:
If nothing is True then what can I believe in? My hard work and my Blade
If nothing is True then who can I trust? Only myself
If nothing is True then where do I put my faith? On the tip of my Blade
Trust no one but yourself, the brotherhood, and your blade. In those three things can you only rely, if you cannot rely on those three things then you do not know the meaning of the word Assassin.
Where nothing is True, yet Everything is permitted.
