The Ireza's Rise (AVTN) - Chapter 615/09/96 –8:53am – Unknown Reality
The world around the three travellers seemed entirely still as they trudged through the empty, damp grasslands, their stomachs rumbling – with the exception of Vernus, of course, who simply darted his eyes around searchingly
After a small while of searching, Zarin sighed and flopped down in the dull, waist-high grass, leaving very little of himself for sight.
"It's hopeless." He huffed, looking up at the bright blue sky and rubbing his rumbling stomach. "We'll never get any food out here."
With a look of pity, Vernus sat beside him and placed his cold yet somehow comforting hand upon Zarin's slouched shoulder.
"Don't worry, Zarin. We might not be able to see any food now, but there's a lot of grass out here. There might be food right in front of us and we'd never know it."
This gave Ember pause as she watched the two of them, smiling . To see Arcian and Ireza in such a vulnerable alliance was new to her and it was almost sweet. To know
From an Insecure GirlfriendI'm sorry for the excess of apologiesFrom an Insecure Girlfriend3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And for all the thoughts that I've indulged
For dealing with the summer full of insecurities
That I only half-divulged
It's not easy living as an irrational being
That's motivated by her fear
But I could stand the poison I feed myself
If it stayed out of your atmosphere
I'm just a little lost, and a little dazed
At having someone that finds me fit
I've never had something this remarkable before
But I doubt I could have held on to it
And though I continue to learn and grow
To the shadow of the girl you deserve
There's still that something deep within
Controlled by assumptions both grand and absurd
And if I seem afraid of losing you
It's not that I don't believe your words
It's because I don't trust myself to keep you,
As is the way with cowards
But even though I'm a living mess,
A bundle of chaos upon your life,
That doesn't change that as long as I'm yours
You will make me feel alright
I know you say you're nothing amazing
Well, darling, neither am

BloodFingers race across the skinBlood3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
like shadows slithering on the walls,
tendrils spreading further,
covering the white canvas.
Ice shoots down the spine,
harder and harder to breathe.
Tremors overtake the body
and force you to your knees.
Whispers assault your ears,
words of serenity twisting into screams.
Voices in your head,
taking human form.
Attempt to block them out,
try to say it's only a dream.
Keep reality at bay
with the walls around your mind.
Hands around your throat
Force the oxygen to your lungs,
fight off the black.
Blood coats the hands,
arms shaking with the tension.
The mess slowly creeps across the floor.
It's all your fault.
As We Slowly BurnI pull her close till our bodies entwine,As We Slowly Burn4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a morbid prelude to our demise,
we dance until this world stops turning,
we waltz along the bridges we're responsible for burning,
hand in hand,
side by side,
we'll slide along the shattered souls that become our dance floor,
downtrodden and broken they lie before us,
and so we begin our final dance,
surrounded by the burning ash of the lives we led,
the lights of judgement begin to burn so bright,
they fall upon us casting twisted silhouettes of who we once were,
as fire begins to consume her dress,
i hold her ever more tightly as the flames tear apart our flesh,
it's here we suffer for our sins,
as we slowly dance our way to oblivion.....

Stare with those eyes,
Striking and radiant,
Those eyes like ice,
Yet warm and pleasant
Whisper to them,
Listen to their whispers back,
Then turn around and watch
Carefully planning your attack
In your moment of triumph,
Alone and victorious,
Meet my eyes, breathless
The moment before the music begins
Smile at me.
I dare you.
Frustrated ChristianSometimes Christians baffle me. I'm talking about a very specific group of Christians... a group that is much more prevalent and numerous than I want to believe. They want to draw souls to themselves, but they sneer and spit poison when they think no one was listening. They dominate the charity scene, but they pick and choose which people are deserving of their help. Not content to just cling to their faith, they choose to cling just as tightly to their behaviors, insisting that God is leading them so their behavior is right, no matter what anyone says. If any of these describe you, my message is for you.Frustrated Christian2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
You are sent to mirror the image of God to the people of earth. Is that what you want people to think God is like? Do you want people to think God is a back-biter who gleefully jeers about the "bad" people among his elite followers and friends? Do you want people to think that He only picks people
My Bully Story (Inspirational)I'm a very kind, shy and quiet person, and a pretty good artist, but some people never took a chance to figure that out. Starting around 5th or 6th grade I believe, I started to get bullied because of my looks. I have scoliosis, kyphosis, and crooked teeth. Over time my self-esteem had become shot, so I wore baggy boy clothes every day and my hair never came out of a pony tail.My Bully Story (Inspirational)2 years ago in Spirit Day More Like This
The bullying wasn't too bad then though, it started getting worse in 7th and 8th grade. I was constantly getting dirty looks and people telling me I was funny looking, ugly, and everything else you could imagine. Some days were worse than others. Then, high school came along. The same people from the years before became more vicious along with their new friends. It was to the point to where every other day I was crying in the office while reporting various people. I've reported some so many times that they got expelled. Every day I went home to be alone in my room, thinking "what did I do wrong?", and I w

If I Told You I Were To Run AwayWould you come with me?If I Told You I Were To Run Away3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would you hop into my passenger seat
And navigate while I drive
Even though we don't know where we're going?
Would you come with me?
Would you eat the crap food I buy
Because it's cheap and easy to cook
And still say, "Dinner was delicious, babe"?
Would you come with me?
Would you use up any spare change we find
And shove more than a quarter's worth of clothes
Into a laundromat washing machine?
Would you come with me?
Would you be willing to spend cold nights
Curled up with me in the back of my car
Because we have no cash for a hotel?
Would you come with me?
Would you be willing to let me kiss you
Before I fall asleep and when I wake up
Even though we both have morning breath?
Would you come with me?
Would you leave your family
Your friends and familiar safety behind
For a little while to go with me?
I want to run away
But to be honest,
I'd only go if I went
With you, dear.

What did we ever do to you?
What's your problem with us?
So what if i'm not just like you?
That boy isn't a 'fag'. He is a Human Being.
Did any if us ask for your opinion?
Do we care what you you think?
His eyes are weird? Because he totally chose his looks.
Seriously, just f--- off.
No one asked you to agree with me.
Just because he wears black doesn't mean he's a bad person.
That girl you call a slut? she's a Virgin.
Just because i support Gay rights does not mean i am gay.
Yeah, I'm different. Bite me.
He has a Disability. It doesn't make him any less of a person than you are.
Don't like me? Don't talk to me.
Get over yourself. The world doesn't revolve around you. You're not that cool.

Control the impulse

They stare into
That lies within
Beneath my skin
It runs through
My scarlet veins

As I walk through
Step by step
Demons in disguise
Ready to pounce
Grab hold of my soul
Until I collapse
Drop to my knees

One thought ricocheting off the other in a deafening mess
My brain is mobbed by little things
How does my makeup look? What will I do tomorrow? When can I finish that project? Will I fit in this year?
And big, looming things
What if I relapse? Are people talking about me? What am I going to do with my life? Where am I headed?
All these thoughts, these constant, choking thoughts
Are making me claustrophobic
Your mind is a box and worries fill it
I envy those with empty boxes

Another pointless day,
Another night of Dark Desires holding sway.
Time and again I've gone
Round and round,
Some I win and others I fail,
But ultimately I lose the war.
Ha! What lies!
What good did it ever do?
Who cares if rocking the boat
Who cares if all grow tired
Of my languishing screams?
I'm not here for their entertainment!
It matters not if my life
Is eternally on
Anguish and Shadow,
Tonight we dance
With Sweet Despair.
Tonight we sing
Laments to break
Our lonely hearts,
And echo forlornly
Throughout our Shredded Psyche.
Tonight I don't care.
Tonight doesn't matter.
Neither do my twisted,
My fantasies are my own,
Every last bloody rendering.

Overcome by sunny daze,
How can I restrain from jumping
Into foam of turquoise waves?
As November wind is sneaking
Through the coat with long wool sleeves,
How can I restrain from diving
Into pool of amber leaves?
While the holiday December
Shoos the chill with Christmas glow,
How can I restrain from plunging
Into pile of crispy snow?
Naughty April breeze is tugging
At the skirt of floral dress;
How can I restrain from running
Through the rug of fresh-trimmed grass?
