Ch. 4 of ImprintChapter 4 When Strangers Know Your Secret, It's Never A Coincidence
I woke up to my mom screaming. It was only four o'clock in the morning. Not even close to time to wake up for school this Monday morning. I assumed that she had a nightmare about me, or the rest of the pack. I sighed and plopped my head to the side of my pillow. Then she screamed again, louder and more fearful. I then realized it couldn't have just been a dream. I shot out of bed and got a head rush, it ached but I managed to walk out of my room dizzily. My eyes instantly grew wide when I saw my mother's door had been slammed open and was laying ﬂat on the ﬂ
The New Demon QueenWalking through the shadows of the moon, scraping against thorns and followed by small eyes implanted into the trees. A screech owl takes prey, as you run through the corridors of an old aching wood. Night falls deeper as your heart pounds as loudly as your feet crush the ground. Panic washes over your veins, and you trip, the sky fading out of your eyes. The air soon wakens you once more, but in a place where the creatures of your nightmares wander, dancing and beating drums in honor of your capture. Hyena tinged laughter echoes through the glowing cave, as your eyes focus on the figures writhing in joy before you.

eyes have grown cold
No place for sorrow
heart has fallen apart
No place for reminiscing
the past hides behind a wall
No place for self-recrimination
the deed cannot be undone
No place for self-pity
where none was shown
No place for peace

She wished for miracle,
an answer from up above.
Sitting alone at night,
wishing to die.
As she cuts her skin,
she also cries.
She looks at what she's become,
nothing in her eyes.
And every time she self-destructs,
It's cold in her world,
on the inside.
But she doesn't know how to cope,
her hands are tied.
And although you may already see,
the girl in this story is broken,
this girl is me.

Morning broke on my face and I opened my eyes. I found that I was cuddled up with Singe and Trent was outside talking to Ray about some video games that Ray had borrowed from him. I kissed Singe on the forehead and walked outside straight to Henry. "Good morning Stella!"He greeted me with a smile. "So what am I supposed to say to her?"I wondered. "You won't have to say anything. I've already planned it out. We are all going to your house and you won't have to say anything. We will explain exactly what is going on so we can get this over with."Henry gave me a stern look. "But I had already tried to tell her once.

Words Cannot DescribeWords can't describe an emotion so real,Words Cannot Describe1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A heart held together by your thread.
Just over the ships edge, knowing,
I was going to fall.
And with each pulse of my heart
With your stare, your blazing eyes,
your brush, an accidental softness,
and your entrancing soft laugh
You set my timer-ridden heart to detonate.
My voice falters, trying to help you comprehend
but no words escape my lips.
Instead I smile, and watch you walk away.
I cannot ruin myself in your coal eyes
by expressing under such short time.
But, I still dream,
with our short time left together,
maybe I can make you see-
what words cannot describe.
Friendship Is More ThanFriendship is more than just being there,Friendship Is More Than4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Being there through the good times,
And being there through the bad times,
It is being there for everything in between,
For being wisdom when wisdom is needed,
To call out the things that we need to change,
But to do it in a loving way,
To be a person that is there through everything,
And to give a small to get you through the roughest days,
It doesn’t have to be a friendship based in reality,
Although those are important as well,
But the bonds we make can trespass,
Through any limitations of different locations,
Friendship is more than how many years you know someone,
How well that you might kn

So others can shine.
So others can lead.
I break my own heart,
So others will be complete.
Because others will smile.
I stay up all night,
So others can sleep.
When you go to play,
I’ll be a toy
So you will have someone to play with.
I’ll be walking in the background.
When you read the book,
I'll be a random character.
When you look at me,
You know my name.
Even if just for a day,
Or an hour,
Or a second,
I would like to stand in the front.
I want to be seen by others.
To see people know my name,
Instead of standing in the background.

The Way Things AreIf you want to, then do itThe Way Things Are1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
If you’re thirsty, then drink
If you’re hungry, eat
If it looks good, then it is; embrace it
If you’re tired, go to sleep,
If it’s funny, laugh
If it’s not, don’t; everyone else is a fool in your mind
If you don’t like them, don’t engage with them
If you love someone, tell them
When you are overwhelmed with sadness, anger, despair; scream and release the emotions that suffocate you,
When your thoughts run away, follow them into the wild and dark recesses of your mind
Throw our watches out the window; time is limiting
Burn our money; material will rot with our body in time
Our heart’s never break; glue them back with indifference
If you want to join us, come along
If you want to, then do it.

i let the blade taste
salty skin, fed it more sin

transformed into no one cares

soon it was to feel
made me believe i was real
sit alone all day
hiding myself away

loved the thought of me
but alas i found that in
wounding my body
no one was around
i pushed you away
i regret that my friends, yes

even a slight whisper

caught between my many fears
still holding back tears
but that's just one side
i keep holding onto, why?

you are still alive...

This wretched pain drowns me.
This heart may be bleeding
but inside my mind im truly dying.
Maybe you cant see it.
But these tears should surly make you see.
That this heart is withering.
Just dying to be free.
Wont you please let me breath?
Cant you please just set me free?
This war keeps waging on.
These scars keep opening up.
I keep losing my heart and soul.
Set me free and let me go.
This cage keeps getting smaller.
This heart keeps breaking more.
This white flag keeps burning.
But inside im still fighting on.
But these wounds you make are getting sharper …
how much could one bleed on?

The letter was crinkled and out of sorts, but I stuck it in my coat pocket for keeping to read over again. I had not seen Reyson in five years. I have suspected that he had died, but this letter proves otherwise. Was this a dream I had stumbled into on a drunken quest to ease my worries from my unsettled losses? I couldn't be sure tonight, the air was cold and the creep of winter pinched at my mind like a woodpecker on a tree. My house was empty, as dank and miserable in its silence as it always was when I was kept alone with my thoughts. I had only lived here for a few years in this house, it was sold to me by a small man w
The Lotus of ArcheaShe lays in a frozen garden, warmth trickling from his breath into her heart. A tremble on her skin and a shock in her veins, she awakens once more, but he is not there. The sound of his voice echoes in her ears and the sweet smell of memories surrounds her. The ground cracks slowly as she strokes it with her wishes. The lotus sits atop the vines around her ankles, singing it's lonely song. Come away with me sweet angel, with me you can flee, in a place where we belong. Erasing all the memories, to take away the pain. Listen for my song my love, I'll lead you to your home. Here with me, I'll never flee, like the rest that have come and gone.The Lotus of Archea7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This

It wasn't my choice
I never learned to... be quiet.
Graves are only boxes
I'm not dead yet, but who's counting?
The clock is
Time doesn't exist-
I don't cut my wrist
I'm not pissed
But I'm sad.
I want to be a writer
But instead, I'm bitter
Down comes the rain,
pitter patter pitter
Against the window pane
I don't really know how to rhyme
But if I had a dime
For every time
I crumpled up a piece of paper,
I'd be rich.
But I'd have to give it all back for wasting trees.
You can't win against society
They don't get that people come in variety
Causing people anxiety over their body
And the way they look.
They bring out the book
I say, "What book?"
They say, "The bible."
Is it really that reliable?
Christians are undeniable

Please try to calm your mind and forget about tomorrow
I know that life can hurt, but from my happiness you can borrow
Please don't cry anymore, I will help you with the troublesome morrow
Even if the bad seem to be everywhere you go
Just keep in mind that you have to stay away from what’s below
And I know that you’ll learn from these bad experiences
So then you can help those who are inexperienced
Please don’t be sad, everyone has a reason for his or her existence
You can’t ever give up, push through and have resistance
The worst thing you could do is to l
