I can't just exist. But I can't live either. I was never meant to live in a world like this. I'm sure of that. Where is the reality I desperately seek? Where is the end of my dream? When I wake up, will I want to go back to sleep?
I don't think I was ever born. I don't remember anything but pain. The pain I cause others. The pain inside my mind. Like a headache that never fades. If I reach out for help I drag that helping hand into the shadows. Into unknown darkness and torment. Nightmares. Perhaps I am a nightmare within a large beautiful dream.
It must be a beautiful dream. Because I met someone from outside, someone pure. Though the world is twisted and cruel she kept her sadness inside, it bloomed again and again within her soul. She came to me with a smile.
I can't remembe

Eric slumped onto a barstool, ordering himself another glass of whisky. He hadn’t been at the pub long, but already could feel the effects of the alcohol. His mind fuzzy, and his body swaying slightly. He tipped back the glass, taking it like a shot as he turned around to look out at the other patrons dancing and talking joyfully.
Normally he would go to the pub with his best friend, Ronald, but Ron had overtime and he had had the worst day. He woke up to find he was an hour late for work, upon getting to work, Alan cornered him, lecturing him about being late before loading his arms full of paperwork. In doing said paperwork; the reaper found that his last pen had run out of ink and he had to hunt for another one; which he found in the hands of Grell who happened to want a favor, which he reluctantly obliged, taking another stack of paperwork atop his own. Ronald had also found him, chewing him out about the new secretary who the young reaper had been trying

You woke up really early the next day. It felt like you had gone to bed early last night anyway, so maybe that was all that was keeping you from sleeping in. Yawning, you stretched and got your clothes for the day on. Not bothering to have any one of the servants to come along, you went out of your room and headed for the garden. You walked down the stone steps and onto the lawn, right before the huge maze of hedges and flowers.
"Miss?" a quiet and timid voice called from behind you. Turning, you saw a very pretty woman with silvery hair and skin like caramel. She had on a navy maid uniform and a white gauze and wrap around her left eye. You blinked at her for a second then smiled nicely.
"Hello. I'm afraid I haven't met you yet," you told her politely.
She bowed, not ever making eye contact with you, and apologized quickly. "My apologies Miss. You can call me Hanna if you wish. I was just going to tell you that breakfast is going to be done shortly. The Master is not awake yet,

You saw Ciel cringe as you watched from the doorway. "Whatever. Look Trancy, I've come for-"
"Dinner?" Alois interrupted very quickly, glancing at you. "Sure, sure. Claude was just getting on that!"
As he spoke, the said man bowed and left for the kitchens, eying the Phantomhives on the way out.
"What the bloody hell are you talking abou-Oh." Ciel paused after you left from the doorway, looking at him.
Alois spoke up, "Ah, yes! I have company. The dear (Last Name) House has left their daughter in my care for the next few days."
"(Last Name) House? As in the merchant company?" Ciel asked to no one in particular.
You nodded, grinning lightly. Ciel cocked his head to the side and paced up to you. "You look familiar..."

Love and TrustLove and trustLove and Trust2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Both are hard things to know, to feel, to experience. One can never be sure of what they are, for they are different for each person to know.
Love is limited by boundaries. Most people believe you can only truly love one person. And, though I respect it, I deem it untrue.
Whether there's something wrong with my brain or not, I don't know, but I have the capacity to love pretty much everyone. There is no limit to my love. It just brings me such conflicts at times.
I wish I could live as who I am without fear that my family would disown me were they to find out. I wish I could be with those I love without running away. I wish I didn't have to choose between love and family.
Trust is something I find extremely difficult. All of my life, I've relied only on myself. Trusting people has only left them dead, from my experience.
But... I want to learn. I'm not running any more. I've given up running. I want to have a future. I want to learn what it's like to survive. I want to l
LifeCome to think about it, my life and what happens in and around it should make me bitter. And sometimes it does. Bitter, twisted, and a vile shade of jealous. I get jealous of people's popularity, their exposure, the fact they get gifts for doing little else other than simply existing, whilst people like me sit in the shadows, getting nothing, and shrugging it off saying it's fine, that's what I do, it's my job, I don't ask for a return.Life2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
But, you know something? Even with all the gifts all those people get combined, I still have more than they have. I have true friends. Friends I can trust and rely on. Friends I can turn to when I'm feeling down. Friends who I can see as friends even when I'm deep in psychosis.
These people are the best friends in the world, and I wouldn't trade them for anything

The night air was cold and frosty. The stars in the sky twinkled like little golden sparkles falling down ones hand. The moon was a large orb that brought light to the streets of London. Usually all of these things would have captured Prince Soma's eye but not tonight. What captured his attention was a beautiful voice that was faint but rang out onto the streets. Hearing those notes being played out he followed it, not caring if Agni was following or not. Twisting and turning around corners he came across a small café that smelled of coffee and chocolate.

The house is quiet even after putting the master to bed. The only thing that could be heard was the sound of small drops of rain falling on the roof and windows.

"Didn't I say we were going to England?" I blocked the sun from my vision. It was hot here and I'm pretty sure the sun is a pure sadist. Ciel caught up with me, amazed about what happened in England. The stores and restaurants have changed since the last time he set eyes in London. He perceived a restaurant that stayed the same: Rules Restaurant. The problem was; did it taste the same? He hadn't eaten there since his parents had died.
"You did, but drunk people don't make good decisions," Ciel muttered under his breath, "The streets didn't change. I thought they'd change it after two hundred years." His head turned side to side, trying to take in the different environment. I opened my humongous map of London and tried to turn it in the correct way. The wrinkled paper creased on the road we were on, refusing to let me me understand which direction we were heading in.
