Note to self: CONTROL THE CANDY AMOUNT ON HALLOWEEN.
I have no idea how it happened, but some how Iggy hunted down the giant candy stash in my moms house. He smuggles every piece into his room and told Angel, Gazzy, and Nudge he wanted to show them a new video on you tube, but turns out the had chowed down on all of the candy! All stinking 493 pieces and they didn't even tell me my mom had candy stashed!
After busting them, I found out the real problem wasn't the fact that I didn't get ANY candy, but that they had just eaten 493 pieces of HIGH SUGAR candy.
You know the way Gazzy acts regularly, right? Multiply that by 112. Then add that craziness to Iggy, Nudge, and Angel and the solution of calming them down doesn't exist.
It has taken me and Fang six hours to finally wear them down.
A floor board creaked and a shaft of light broke through my slightly crack door. I got up off my bed trying to make the least amount of noise possible. I unfurled my

Just a little bit more
But deep down you know the score
Because there'll always be
Just one more.
Tell yourself whatever you want
Whatever you wanna hear
But deep down you'll always fear
That dangerous idea of
Just one more.
Lie to everyone 'til they see
'Til they see you for you
But deep down they'll never see through
'Cause there's that precious
Just one more.
Max+Fang One-shot"How could he do this to me?" she muttered. "After all we've been through..." Max turned over on her bed to face the wall, squeezing her eyes shut to stop the tears pooling in her eyes. Unfortunately, that didn't stop the memory of that day from forcing its way into her mind. "I can't believe he did that." Max thought. She clenched her jaw when she thought of Lissa, the Red-Haired Wonder, shoving Fang (her Fang!) against the wall in the hallway and kissing him.Max+Fang One-shot5 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
A tear leaked from her eye as Max remembered what Fang had done in return. Pushed Lissa away? Nope. Told Lissa he didn't like her like that? Of course not! No, Fang had gone and kissed the Red-Haired Wonder right back! Max choked back a sob. The pain in her chest tore at her.
To make it worse, the only thing she could do was cry. That, and curse Fang's name to hell and back. "You damn bastard! I hate you!" Max cried into her pillow, "Why'd you do it? I can't believe you never realized...I..." "You what, Max?"
Max bolted upright

Good evening to the cliff
The one that leers above
Challenging the leap
With rubbles that tumble down
With broken hearts that finally shatter
Good evening to the sky
The one that widens 'round
Surrounding with their spattered skies
With black blooded stains
With white flaring scorns of disdain
Good evening to the sea
The one that trembles below
Waving final sayings, tides of goodbyes
With swirls of treachery
With educing calls of end
Good evening to the world
The one that doesn't care if she drowns
Ignoring her sadness, her tears, her pain
With closed ears to cries
With hearts made of stone

On this day is love so grand?
How does this change from before?
Now it seems like a simple brand,
but love is love and not a law.
It comes and goes like little black swallows,
you can choose with the heart and mind;
than just the face in which you might follow
a path that's blind and entwined.
Oh the lost and alone do not weep,
the stars can only start to spring and sprout
as the coils of clockwork are truly deep
it can be hard to find and come about.
Time is time do not rush,
one day I am sure you will find that crush.

with stars in your palms, because
they thought it was a crime
you'd never made a wish in your life
the dirt and darkness
was enough to extinguish
their dying lights
(it's okay, your silent skin
said, softly, I always wanted
the sky to bring me to sleep)
the priest begged, believing you
might rise from the hole
you'd dug for yourself
he wanted to let you know
there was something bigger than all of us,
someplace farther than 6 feet under
(I'm alright, your stony eyes
swore, sometimes falling
feels enough like flying)
their voices all filled with tears
even though you said you weren't worth
their worries, they wept for the future
you wouldn't get to live
(I wouldn't have lived it anyways,
they buried you
near the ocean, where the moon
always shone too bright
so you'd never again have to fear
any monsters of the night
they left flowers, photos, notes
and a little bit of themselves, too
when they finally left you
you believed it was right

Maybe I'm happy,
Maybe I'm sad.
I feel so alone,
Yet I've been with people all day.
I feel so unloved,
Yet I know I have people who love me.
I can't talk about these feelings.
I can't open up when the door is locked.
And the key is lost.
I want to inspire,
But I just recieve empathy.
I want to die,
But I keep on breathing.
I feel so confused, lost and all alone.
The feelings inside me are too strong for my body.
I don't want someone to understand.
I want someone to give me the answers to why I am like this.
And a solution to fix the massacre inside me...

"Hey watch it Uchiha! No need to push!" He trailed in after Sasuke and sat on a stool on the far left of the ramen stand, the opposite side of the shop of Sasuke.
"What will ya have?"
Naruto looked up at the chef from glaring at Sasuke.
"Surprise me!~" Naruto said with a grin on his face. It stayed frozen on his face until the chef left to cook. Naruto glared back at where Sasuke was sitting. He was gone!
"Good-" His eyes grew large with a hand being placed on his shoulder.
Sasuke was standing behind him as Naruto turned in his stool.
"You wanted me gone?" Sasuke placed his hand on the counter behind Naruto, trapping him.
Naruto turned his head away stubbornly with a pout.

Mirror, MirrorI can't stand the sight of my reflection.Mirror, Mirror7 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
Every time I see her, I cringe. Look at her - the dark shadows beneath her eyes, the slumped shoulders, the half-empty gaze that stares back at me. She's disgusting. She's a monster.
But is she real? Am I real?
I don't know.
Maybe she's the real one and the reason she looks the way she does is because she always sees me and is terrified that something horrible will happen. Maybe I'm the real one and I'm terrified that she's going to let that something occur.
Or maybe we're just the same person and I'm letting my thoughts become too unraveled. There's no such thing as another side to a mirror. It's just a piece of glass that reflects that which is in front of its surface. But then again, what do I know? Not much, if I'm being completely honest.
There are times where I'll pass my reflection and stop, stare at her, and the urge to do nothing more but take her hand and say I'm sorry. I'm sorry for everything I've said t

I sincerely did my very best, I really tried
I just could no longer stand feeling so powerless inside

I prayed and prayed and asked "why?"
I was always silently drowning in the tears I cried

sweeping across the snow
left me a feather
and away he goes
and away he goes
drifting up on the air
but I seem to be stuck here
melting in the cold
cannot rip my eyes from the sky
cannot get my fists to unfold
the words have frozen to our tongues
that's what happens to winter love
so you think this feather is enough to make a wing
so you try to free me from it,
but your claws only sting.
i walk away
come to regret every footfall
but I can't keep you down
because you're up
and I'm frozen to the ground
laying pale in the snow
he can soar no more
you didn't have to do that
have to fall on your own sword
cut your wings apart
to get me back home.
and as I see you freeze
I know now what it is I believe
that someone could give up everything
come down to the winter

stabbed straight through Sweet William;

A path surrounded by darkness
I don't know what's coming

Nightmare: The Only Cure
My insides burn-
Like swallowing acid
Reality slows down-
Smiling is therapeutic
Health is a virtue / Strength is torture
Alive again tomorrow / Enduring the horror
To keep on breathing
Mirrors are left sickened
Grinning back at myself
You must be enjoying this hell
Perfect possession / Muffled suffocation
Heart is racing / Sight is darkening
In these hallucinations
My skin is melting
Oh how I wish I was dreaming
Of when I finally start recovering
It's only hopeful thinking
A cure for me is a delusion
Quarantined tears / Reality's nightmare
I am beyond repair / All were well aware
A bright light shone-
Like a welcoming presence
My suffering is done-
Take away my sickness
