From an Insecure GirlfriendI'm sorry for the excess of apologiesFrom an Insecure Girlfriend4 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

That crowned queen of the night sky,
And I fall to you,
A slain enemy
To an angel's sword,
Stabbed through and through,
I fall to you.
Do not talk to me of that poison,
That seeps through a fool's mind
And brings folly, makes you blind;
I won't fall to that
Insidious insinuation of affection.
Not for you.
Not for anyone.
And yet I do.
I love you.
I wish to be with you,
But without that which
Would come if I were with you.
I wish to be with and without,
With what I would have
And without what I will have;
But all roads point to
You, what are you?
That rides along the road
And which I would gladly throw myself under?
I would certainly throw myself under you.
The great She.
The great Perhaps;
The master of me.
Love. Love. Love.
A loaded gun.
A pain sweet as cyanide,
And try as I might,
I cannot hide
From the lightning storm rage
Of the notorious Perhaps,
And it feels like a relapse
To fall into you.

that you don't talk to me no more
It turns my heart to stone
each time you left me alone
how did it end this way?
can't you please stay...?
I don't wanna lose you
not before I die too
I didn't believe you'd do this
rip my heart to bits
I didn't believe you'd do this
'cause I was so masochist
I'm a fucking coward
for my happiness won't last an hour
I hide in self-pity
for my scars are too filthy
If you hear my sobs in the night
remember for you I'd fight
You had me at the palm of your hand
yet, alone, you made me stand
The light in your eyes
have riddled my cries
the light in your eyes
turned yourself to a lie
Not one person can take your place
yet anyone knows your disgrace
They all have a presence
yet only yours I can sense
I've made myself blind
leaving only YOU in my mind

the way I hold my heart, the way I hold my pride
I will stay strong of body, strong of will
In the cold breeze that I walk along
The memories, the betrayal burn within me
it feels like forever
since I've cried, the pain the sorrow
I never spoke of the tears
I never showed my fears
I never opened up to anyone
I will always be that strong
No regrets 'cause I got nothing to lose
so I will live my life as I choose
now I'm standing on the edge
trying not to fall
I am a lone wolf
But like anyone
I crave for company
A pack to call my own
To have someone that will give me their support
To have someone that will help me up when I am down
But most of all to have someone that will care for me
For the wolf I am inside
Is that somewhere waiting for me?
Somewhere that I belong
Or will I always live like this?
Always the lone wolf!

As the wounds of the body?
Is sickness any lesser

Rather than physically?
All fire burns

Just because one does not bleed
Does not mean
One is not wounded
The body can mend
But the mind suffers
THE VENTRILIOQUISTEveryone wants to create peace with peace,THE VENTRILIOQUIST2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
But this world has been formed by bloodshed.
The ground we walk on, the system we live by.
We fuel every day to keep the car running.
The things we buy those nice shoes with, keep the wars funded,
And we wonder why the barrels are hot, like the throat from the trumpet.
See, I’ve decided that us people live by the game of peek-a-boo.
Hands closed over our face during the night time,
Hands open and out forward for the bright shine.
Either we don’t want work to get what we want,
Or don’t want to do what is necessary to get what we want,
But expect everything in the world to change at the swipe of a wand.
If history is doomed to repeat itself
The present must do what hasn’t been done so the future can create itself.
So for us that wants peace without war,
All of our actions need spoken words.
We all must be ventriloquist.
Everything we do must have a message
That speaks volumes,
To where we are all walking books,

A Very Skyrim ChristmasT'was the night before Christmas, and all through Whiterun,A Very Skyrim Christmas2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not a living thing was outside,
Except the guards, and Whiterun's local bum
Jarl Balgruuf was in bed, a bed fit for the Lord,
In hopes that St. Nick would bring him a Sword;
In the small house known as Breezehome, Lydia did slumber,
Wishing that for Christmas she would get a Sword of Thunder;
And Archer set out some milk and a sweet roll,
Preparing for the arrival of Santa, so he wouldn't get coal;
He had no idea what this man looked like,
But he hoped that he'd visit, possibly this night
He yawned tiredly, and then scratched his head,
Before going upstairs to sleep in his bed.
In the morning, he hoped, he would have some nice presents…
Well, after all, he'd been kind to the peasants,
When suddenly, in the living room, Archer did hear,
A large man was present… when did he appear?
With a focus, then a cast, Archer was see-through,
So he could sneak behind a chair, and see what the man would do.
He wore a large red
Lone Wolf's CryYou walk alone,Lone Wolf's Cry7 years ago in Open More Like This
You are the Wolf that walks alone.
You have no friends, none of your kind,
Will there ever be a friend for you to find?
You walk in sadness, and despair,
No one to love you, anywhere.
The world is cruel,
The world is mean,
You walk alone,
This is your prayer,
A mournful song,
You have never had anywhere to belong.
This is your howl,
Your sad, sad cry.
Crying beneath the open sky.
Does anyone hear you?
Are you truly alone?
Does anyone care about you?
And your bitter moan?
Others walk for you not to find,
They dont care, they have peace of mind.
You walk alone on a desolate plain,
Will you ever have a home again?
Will anyone cry, weep, wail, or moan,
At the death of the Wolf that walks alone?

My own supply of heroine,
One taste is all I needed,
Before I was hooked.
You're like a drug,
Your scent gets me high,
I float on cloud nine,
Every time I remember you.
You're like a drug,
Your touch leaves me breathless,
I always have you on my mind,
I see your face in my dreams.
You're like a drug,
The way you affect me,
A way nobody has been able to,
Not until I met you.
You're my drug,
I breathe you in,
I feel you coursing through me,
You're the blood in my veins,
All of me belongs to you.
You're my drug,
I'm addicted to you,
And the funny thing?
I wouldn't trade you for anything.
I live for the high,
For the life you give me,
For the joy you bring,
For the memories we share.
You're my drug,
I love you like crazy,
I'll never have enough of you,
You're on my mind endlessly

Praised be Magnus, the One, the Architect, the Sun of Nirn, the Gate between Creation and Aetherius.
Magicka flows through Magnus, who is Its Creator and Master. In Nirn, the coexistence of Change and Stasis produces the perfect foundation to Magicka and Time.
With Time we obtain Change, and with Magicka, we can See Change and Change the Nothing. The Creation from Nothing, and from Nothing, the Change.
From the Heart of Change, deep in the Void, the Nothing becomes Something, and then, Time begins. But Time does not Read the Stasis, but is used to See the Change, and with Change, comes Nirn.
The Dawn's Beauty, Part of Creation, Change in Nothing, Time in Stasis.
The Creation Itself is Magicka.

The Monster WithinIn the northern reaches of Whiterun Hold, the autumn winds blew coldly across the highlands. Whiterun Hold had not yet seen its first snowfall, but the promise of it hung in the air, a chill that stung the cheeks and nipped the nose each time it blew past. The effect was felt throughout the land. Animals had begun to prepare for hibernation, and each day the amount of birdsong in the air dwindled. Most of the trees in the forests were turning more bare with each passing day, surrendering the leaves from their lofty boughs. Only the hardy evergreens, remaining true to their name, seemed unaffected by the approaching Winter.The Monster Within5 months ago in Horror More Like This

Rainbow Once upon a time, there was a world without colour. Everything above and under the sky were black and white. The trees were black and white, the waters that flowed were black and white, the animals were black and white, even the people were black and white. None of them had ever heard of 'colour', and they all lead very unhappy lives as their ruler, King Greyskies, a wicked and terrible man, had forbidden laughter for all of his people, seeing it as a useless emotion.Rainbow7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

He had skin the colour of a peach, eyes bluer than the sky, and hair the colour of golden straw. He had a merry face and in his hand, he held a brush wet with eternal paint.
No one knew where he had come from, but all of them gazed at him in wonder. The blacksmiths stopped hammering on their irons, the carpe

I do hope this letter finds all of you well. I fear my others may not have reached you since there has yet been a reply.
Mother and I miss you along with our remaining brothers and sisters terribly. As you may know things have been rather difficult over the last dozen or so years. After waiting with no luck for our brother Garnag’s return, we had no choice but to leave Cyrodiil behind. As mentioned in my message from last Sun's Dusk, we have booked safe passage by boat. I am happy to report we now reside in Skyrim.
You do remember the last time we saw one another, don’t you? Our brief time in Bravil and the bit of trouble you made and I smoothed over? Sister, I do loath to press the favor but we are in great need of help now. All I ask is simple shelter for the two of us. I will keep my hands

who made me feel more alive than ever
and made my heart leap more than fish begging for food
he kissed me so unselfishly
and held me as if he was scared i'd break

with each kiss, hand hold, and shared sigh
'you're beautiful, every little piece darling'
his voice melted my insides and the drops
so full of joy ran out my eyes
and he kissed them all away
