By Monday morning, I feel strange. It could have been because I didn't eat all day Saturday, and Sunday all I had was a bowl of chicken noodle soup that took me nearly an hour to finish. Sleep had also decided that we are no longer friends. I haven't slept since Friday night. Something weird is going on. I don't feel sick at all, there is no nausea, dizziness, or sore throat. I don't even have a fever. I just don't feel right.
Looking in the mirror as I brushed the tangles out of my hair, I notice that I have gotten considerably paler in the past two days. The color has gone from my face completely, and I'm looking more see-through than before. I tried pinching my cheeks, that seemed to help, but not enough. I moved on to slapping, but that only made my cheeks pink for a few seconds before the color faded again.
I tried to fix my new case of paleness with some foundation that I only use in the middle of winter when my skin gets all blotchy, and some blush t
What Now?A romance writer sits at her deskWhat Now?1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Spinning in a swivel chair
She glances at her wrist
The bracelet her love gave her awhile back
What does she write about when there is no curiosity?
When nothing is shrouded in mystery
All the facts standing there naked in front of her
Leaving no doubts or questions
A few more spins
Glancing at a blank screen
If you lose meFree verse poem; for family and friends,If you lose me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when I die.
If you lose me,
Do not mourn.
Cry for me only a night,
And lock your tears away by dawn.
That I am in a better place,
And know I am watching you from there.
Don't dwell on my absence,
But remember what you have.
If you are my relatives,
Love your sons and daughters,
Do not cry for me.
If you are my friend,
Remember the good times,
Cherish them for me.
Laugh at our old jokes,
And never forget me.
If you are my love,
Don't deny her,
If you fall for someone else.
Think of me always,
But continue your life,
And continue your dreams.
If I die tomorrow,
Or if I die old and gray,
It's the same.
If you love me,
Keep loving me.
Keep me in your heart
Jem's deathMy hand shook as I picked up the green gemmed necklace Jem had given me. Who knew that in a matter of a month of his proposal that I'd be sitting on the edge of his bed, clinging to him for dear life, constantly whispering his name. Jem. Jem.

I squeezed my eyes hoping this would all disappear but in my heart I knew that soon those beautiful, lovely grey eyes would be glazed over and empty. Don't die. Don't die. Don't die.
My eyes flew open searching Jem's face to see his lips forming my name but he still looked as blank as ever. You're imagining things.
Heart thudding against my chest I whipped around to see Will standing in the doorway. His piercing blue eyes were directly on me; sad, hurt I couldn't tell. In what seemed like an eternity we looked at each other. It had been so long since we had fully acknowledged each other since the proposal was announced. Images of Will suddenly flashed in my head, of him kissing me, running his hands through my hair, him s
At NightI'm trying so hard to stop these cold thoughtsAt Night2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That swirl 'round inside of my mind
But it seems like no matter how hard I may try
I can't leave these feelings behind
I can't just forget and I can't fall asleep
I lie there for hours at night
Replaying the past inside of my head
Though I fight it with all of my might
The flashbacks are awful, I whimper and squirm
I want to escape them and sleep
But they just keep on coming, relentless and harsh
I'm shaking as I start to weep
I shudder and cry, but I don't make a sound
No one must know about this
Keep quiet, just writhe and suffer alone
As you enter this dreadful abyss
I don't really know how to handle this hurt
But what am I supposed to do?
I'm tormented constantly, living a nightmare,
But, still, I really can't blame you
The fault isn't yours; I know that it's mine
I guess I did something so wrong
That I deserved to have this happen to me again
After years of pretending to be strong
So I'm back to the fear, and I'm back to the pain

Than waking up
In the middle of the night
After a nightmare
That there is no one there
To hug you
No one there
To talk to you
And no one there
To comfort you.
That you are completely
As you always have been.
Yes, there is only one thing
Worse than that.
And that one thing is
That it will never change.
The knowledge that
This is how you will feel
And you can't complain
Because you deserve to be alone.
This is what you deserve.

From the inside out
They're hard to keep
Without a doubt
They make me cry
They bring me pain
They alienate me
They drive me insane
I want to tell you
I really do
But it's easier if
You don't have a clue
And I'd rather suffer
Alone, where you can't see
Than for you to be upset
Because you deserve better than me

Did I mention I hate planes? The fear of crashing plagues my mind as we soar through the blue sky. Then while we're up in the air I want to open the window and let my finger tips graze a cloud. That's what is happening at this very moment. It was helping me remain sane because Rose was sitting right next to me. She's a dumb ass; plain and simple. I don't think that I could stress that enough. Once she heard what I was doing, she decided to do the exact same thing. How she found out? I have no idea because I told no one of my plans. Right now she was beauty sleeping; as she would call it. Well in mt opinion it was bitch sleeping b

The voice was gentle and soft and it belonged to her. "What's going on? Why are we out here?" The last thing he could remember was falling from the cliff. He couldn't do anything because he had used too much chakra from trying to shield his body, midway through the fall everything went black.
The Hyuga approached him hesitantly as if he were a lion getting ready to attack. His eyes latched onto her stomach, it was wrapped in bandages. The first guess that came to mind is that she healed her own wound. Could she have saved him? She did seem like the compassionate type. Or maybe she has some other motive for saving him. But he knew she couldn't have, the look in her eyes said it all. After all she's just like him, i

I entered the classroom fifteen minutes late, as usual, and my student Naruto came at me the moment I was inside. "Kakashi-sensei, you're late again! Where have you been?" I quickly came up with a good explanation, and took my time looking around the classroom. In the far left corner, Shikamaru Nara was sleeping peacefully, unaware of my presence. In the far right corner, Sasuke Uchiha stared at Neji Hyuuga with his Sharingan, he looked pretty pissed. The Hyuuga seemed cold, but I could see a hint of irritation in his face. "If you are so much better than me, then prove it! Let's fight here and now! I'll crush you with my chidori you baka." Sasuke spitted at the Hyuuga. I had never seen him this angry. "It's not just about brute force." the Hyuuga replied, his voice was as cold as his stare. This fight could be interesting to watch, and the cla

A little bit more than half of the students left the room. Kushina was worried if anyone caught her cheating, but when Minato grabbed her hand, she felt all of her worries disappear. Kushina wondered why the instructor didn't check any of the papers for the correct answers. She was sure Minato's answers were right, but didn't think this many people were able to pass. She was a very bright student and still didn't know a single answer to the test.
"Alright " The instructor said after everyone who had failed left the room, "Some of you that are here are cheaters "
Kushina felt a strong tension building up inside of her. What if they knew she cheated? What kind of cruel punishments will she be dealt?

Anyway, here is just a little taste of my new Macy Turner story (that still doesn't have a name)...
Macy Turner stood alone in a place that seemed to only consist of darkness. The air around her moved as if there were people she couldn’t see or hear walking back and forth in the empty space she found herself in. She knew in an instant that she was dreaming, for there was no way that this place of only dark could be real. Confused by her new capability to dream, Macy called out.
“Hello?” Her voice wasn’t loud, and it didn’t echo. It hardly seemed to leave the place

During lunch, Liz is blabbing away with her other friends, about something unimportant. They all burst into laughter at random times, and I'm just glad it's not song. Apparently the singing got so bad on Friday that the unlucky teacher with lunch duty had to tell them to cut it out. I look down at my pathetic lunch. I still don't feel like eating, but I know Liz would have a fit if I didn't get lunch, so I went through the sub line and got half a turkey wrap and an apple. I had already picked at the lettuce at my wrap, unfolding the sandwich in such a way that made me look like I had eaten some.
Laughter erupted beside me as I felt the hands again. They slid up my back, pulled at my hair, traced the line of my collar bone, and laced around my neck. They started tugging at my arms, and I shot up from my seat, trying to shake them away as they whispered my name. Liz and her friends were staring now, and Liz was asking me what was wrong. I probably looked pret

After all that they've been through, he still wanted her; just as he had since the beginning.
And she's watching them joke around with each other, falling into each other's smiles perfectly.
And he looks so much happier. There's an expression on his face that she had never seen.
Her heart stinging, she swiftly turns away.
It's for the best. I shouldn't be this selfish. She laughs coldly out loud. How ironic. I've been given everything I've wanted since I was born. What good is learning to be humble now?
Why can't I be her? What good is she? Just because she can bend, and I can't? Is that why?
She just couldn't understand.
Confused and dazed, she runs into the shoulder of a lean man.

My father disowned me; he thought I was a hopeless cause. He saw my younger sister as a better daughter.
