The Strong SoulThe Strong Soul2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Life is an endless battle. The more eager and sophisticated you struggle, the more you will prevail. But if you stop fighting, life will overwhelm you and push you down! It's hard to get up again, when you're lying on the ground, held down and discouraged by accumulating problems. So never stop fighting and instantly annihilate every problem that you encounter, one after the other! The further you get, fighting through that ocean of problems, the higher you score and the better your reward.
Last des SeinsSekunden sind wie Stunden,Last des Seins2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
stündig schlägt mein Herz.
Kann nicht schlafen, will nicht wachen,
die Last des Seins ist mir ein Schmerz.
Wo ich bin, da will ich nicht sein.
Wohin ich will, da komm ich nicht rein.
Wie ich's mach, es schlägt nicht ein,
steh am Ende immer nur allein.
Die Welt, die dreht sich,
dreht sich an mir vorbei.
Ich steh nur wie angewurzelt,
denn mein Herz wiegt schwer wie Blei.
Leg ich mich schlafen, hoff ich nur eins,
dass morgen früh die Sonne scheint!

A place in my hand.

I know it's tough to do.
Please just remember,
That I am here with you.

The days pass by.
Yet I sit here.
Thinking of you.
How I would like to be,
Within your presence.
I know I have to be patient.

I could be here with you.
Not feeling so blue.
But tonight is different.
So don't be afraid.

Eyes wide with passion.
Knowing this is soon.

Snow on the Wind Chapter 24You've never seen anything like it.Snow on the Wind Chapter 242 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The nightmares rear, crashing into buildings, causing glass to shatter and people to scream. Some enter into the windows of apartments and sully the dreams that Sandy had given them. Sooner or later, they wake up shouting or toss and turn in their nightmare.
Tooth and her fairies put up a terrific fight with the nightmares, throwing little white grenades shaped like teeth to vaporize a nightmare. She throws an Indian spear at you, but the spear dissapates as you put up your hand. She looks like she wants to kill you again, but she is swamped by the nightmares, and becomes distracted from her main job.
Bunny is throwing his boomerangs like crazy, bombing the fearlings with Easter eggs, and hopping from one place to the other so fast, your head swirls.
Sandy conjures up a huge amount of dream sand, shaping it into a tsunami, and it crashes down on at least a third of your army.
North is stabbing the nightmares right and left, his face set into a scowl.

Jamie was still Jamie, although when his friends suggest a snowball fight, his face falls, remembering you playing with his friends, laughing along.
Tooth finally gave up her little jealousy rages and became good friends with Jack, although she does drop hints once in a while, wanting to start a relationship.
North, Bunny, and Sandy were shocked that a loss of a life was the price for their victory. They set up a memorial for you near the lake, which almost everyone attended to the funeral. Jack? He was shell shocked at your death, and spent nearly a year by the frozen lake in Burgess, watching the sun set over your white tomb. Eventually, he did move on, but whenever someone said the word Snowflake to him, he would look like a lost little kid.
Insonium was put near your tomb, no one ever daring to touch it, for fear of Pitch's magic to spread.
Your wings never faded. At th

Snow on the Wind Chapter 23"What do YOU want?" Jack says sulkily.Snow on the Wind Chapter 232 years ago in Romance More Like This
You wince. You've somehow contacted Jack to meet you at the familiar evergreen forest near the factory. The big vendetta wouldn't start until nighttime, when Pitch was strongest.
That night was the winter solstice, the day with the longest night. Ironically, this year's winter solstice was a full moon, which gave the Guardians hope that MiM (Man in the Moon) would help them somehow.
Pitch didn't bother with that. "MiM doesn't help the Guardians," he had said with a wave of his hand. "And if he does send help....well, let's just say there will be moonless nights forever in the world."
But enough of that. Back to your conversation with Jack.
Which is not very pleasant either.
"I need to tell you something."
"What? Like I'd ever trust you again. How should I know you're not stabbing me in the back?"
"Come over here."
Reluctantly, Jack comes over to you and your heart starts beating like mad.
Forget it, you say internally, You're never going to mend y

"I am deadly serious, Miss ____________."
"You expect me to be commander of the nightmares?! Since when would I agree to THAT?!?"
"Oh, maybe expelling the Guardians from existence, scaring you to death, killing your friends and family, and hurting Jack Frost. How does that sound?"
You feel like an ice block has gone down your stomach. And you're shaken to see how naturally he says all of this, like he has much more better things to attend to.
Instead of showing your fear, you narrow your eyes.
"You wouldn't dare hurt Jack."
"Ahh, so you DO care about him."
What have you done?
"Since you care about him so much, talk to him for me. Find his weak spots and fears. There won't be a day of winter after I'm finished with him."
Before you can shout NO, he waves his hand over you.
Then you feel unbearable pain spilling out of your shoulder blades, like someone is scratching out their name with a knife on your back. You shriek and drag your nails
Gale: The Reaping (Part 2) The anthem ends, and immediately Katniss and Mellark are marched off to the Justice Building and disappear inside. An alarm goes off in my head, and I panic.Gale: The Reaping (Part 2)3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Will I never see her again? Will I never be able to tell her how much I love her?
As the crowd begins to disperse, I run up to a passing white-uniformed Peacekeeper.
"Hey, Darius," I say, breathless. "Are the tributes allowed visitors?"
Darius knows what I'm asking. He raises an eyebrow. "If you want to see her, I'd best go as fast as you can."
I thank him, promptly taking his advice.
Unfortunately, there's already a line there. Already Mrs. Everdeen, Prim, Mr. Mellark, and Madge are waiting to go in. Seems Katniss is pretty popular for a tribute. The idea brings a smile to my face as I recall how many little moments we'd shared in the woods. It disappears as I remember that those moments are over.

Vicious thoughts flood my mind
Every day that is spent alone
Reminds me of what I once had
You don't talk to me anymore
The rumours you spread show that you no longer care
Hurt me with threats and insults
Inflict loneliness on me
Go about with your own life
Hide the truth about us
Understand that we are different people now
Remember the bad times and forget the good
Tell yourself I don't matter anymore
Say goodbye forever

Realize I've destroyed myself
But then again, what was there to destroy...?

“Bee’s knees. Hotsy-totsy. Dolled up. Spifflicated.” You pause at this one. “Keep in mind I would never do anything of the latter.”
“Oh, do shut up and keep going with the slang, Red.” your teacher instructs you quite harshly. You’re taking your annual morning flapper lessons with Jack again, and this time, the subject of the matter is flapper talk. All these flappers have some extremely strange slang words around here, you must say. Pipes meant voice. The berries, the bee’s knees, the cat’s pajamas, ritzy, all meant good. Everything’s Jake meant everything’s ok. Tomato meant a girl without brains. Lemon squeezer meant elevator. What a load of words and loopy nonsense! How do flappers even catch up with the talk around them? Ironically, in the world of the flappers, sweetie meant anyon

Moments after my best friend's little sister is chosen to die, one voice from the deathly silent crowd rips through the air.
"Prim!" I hear it, strangled with utter panic. Katniss. Naturally. "Prim!" Again, louder and more distressed this time. Then all of a sudden I see her, running up to the stage.
It takes me all of about 1.2 seconds to process what this means.
No. No. You can't.
Pushing Prim behind her with one arm, she shouts breathlessly, "I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute!"
I am frozen. Time slows down. I watch, dumbfounded, as the annoying, pink-haired Capitol froof frets about the rules, as the weary mayor gives his listless consent, as tiny Prim latches on to her sister, screaming Katniss don't go, don'

"Katniss." A pause. "Katniss." Another pause, this one longer. "Katniss, you're hurting me."
Peeta. My gaze releases the woman, Tisha, at last, and follows where my hand grasped and pinches Peeta's arm into a deathlock. My knuckles are white and his skin where I am squeezing has gone colorless. With a quick intake I let him go, feeling apologetic but unable to form words.
Panic seizes me like a vice, wrapping my heart in barbed wire. She looks powerful. She looks strong. More than that, she's proven herself capable of strength similar to her brother. Where her brother was merciful, I fear she won't be so much. I caused the death of her family. I caused so much pain.
As if reading my thoughts, she softens further, makes herself smaller somehow. I don't know how she does it, except I can only think of a deflated balloon. It isn't to that extreme, obviously, but it's the first thing that comes to mind. "I'm not going to hurt you. I didn't come all this way f

For my only crime.

But they want you to cry
As the bait on the hook
Hangs in front of your eyes
They want you to break
And they know this'll work
They will give, but don't take
As it's all laced with hurt
Close your eyes and breathe deep
'Cause there's nothing to do
It's a fight just to keep
Your heart still beating smooth
Just ignore all the words
And ignore all their hate
Close your eyes from the world
And keep calm and keep safe
They might tease you with love
But they're bad to the core
So don't take what they've got
Close your eyes and ignore
You know what you're worth
You don't need them to say
If you're better or worse
Than the light of the day
You know what you've got
You know they're never right
If you're worth more or not
Than the silence of night
They just want to to break
And they want all your tears
But they made one mistake
Thinking you'd bow to fear
Close your eyes and breathe deep
'Cause there's nothing to do
It's a fight just to keep

Arthur paced back and forth anxiously, the old wooden boards groaning slightly with each agitated step. He’d promised to trust you, but trust wasn’t something that came easily to men like him, especially not when concerning someone like Carriedo.
The atmosphere in the cavern had been uncomfortable to say the least. Spaniards had eyed Englishmen with malice and the Brits had returned the favour tenfold. The crewmen who’d stood around the edge however, had been the least of the blond Captain’s worries; it was the group surrounding him in the middle of the grotto that had been his primary concern. A trigger-happy Spaniard, a sharp-tongued Italian, a rowdy Scotsman, a fierce twelve year old, and a woman who was as impulsive as she was beautiful, had all stood before him.
Thinking about it now, it sounded like the start to a particularly longwinded joke, but not one that Arthur was eager to hear the end of.
When he’d voiced that standing aroun

You want to go home.
Oh sure, the toy factory was just plain amazing, but you just want to be left alone from the world to sort your feelings out.
And that included Jack.
As you tie the red ribbon he had into your hair, a gust of wind unlatches your window.
You sigh and turn around, thinking you know who it is.
"Jack, I know this might be hard to believe....."
You never finish your sentence.
Black tendrils of sand come pouring in from the skylight, crawling into your room.
You screan and bolt for the door, but the wind slams it shut.
The black sand reaches the edge of your room and finds you. It winds itself around you, tightening bonds around your legs and arms, so you can't free yourself or walk. One tendril covers your mouth, gagging you so you can't scream for help.
Thank the god. It was Jack!
You try to scream and scream his name, but you
