Of her special guest they are not yet aware.
They know she is joined by someone quite vital,
And soon they are graced by the one with a title.
In a separate cart a statue is towed,
But their identity makes Twilight explode.
For resting in the seat is the one they've abhorred,
Yes, her guest is the villain Discord.
The mares are astounded; they don't want him back!
Does the princess remember his vile attack?
This is not at all what the ponies would choose,
But the situation the princess quickly does defuse.
She reminds them that they handed him a defeat,
Something that they could assuredly repeat.
The princess's plan involves kind Fluttershy,
She thinks she will turn him into a good guy.
AJ and a beaver then begin to fight,
When Flutters steps in and sets it all right.
The six gather round and the princess does leave,
Looking rather pleased and a little naive.
Through their powers the statue springs back into life,
And just through his stret

Arthur sighed and slumped his chin against the heel of his hand. A small farmer and his family had waited in a line for most of the day and the previous night, just to ask the king if he could possibly lower his taxes. Like that could ever happen.
However, the current king was fair and just, so he didn't send the man off with guards at his heels. Instead, the bearded man leaned forward in his chair, danger twinkling in his eyes. "I will raise and lower the taxes as I feel fit. I would suggest now that you take your loved ones and leave. Thank you."
Still shaking, the farmer sadly turned from the king and made his way back to his family, tired head lowered and once strong shoulders hunched under the power of his king. Just as the meager looking family had left through the heavy wooden doors, one of them came running back.
The prince's head perked up as he recognized the girl as the eldest of the children. Her

"Hello my dear." She whispered in a nonchalant tone. "How long has it been?"
I faked a smile, hoping she wouldn't realize how cold I had become. "It's been far too long" I glanced down at the floor, playing along.
"How were your travels?" Her soft voice cooed as if she knew.. knew all of the horrid things I had done. I tried to brush the blood off my hands but it was too late, she saw straight through me. Before I could reply, or even utter a word she broke the silence. "Things are different now.. aren't they?"
It was sad, but true. The happy times we once spent together would be no more. The laughter, the smiles, the love we once shared. It was all gone. I had sinned far too much to ever win her heart back, and we both knew it. "I'm afraid so." The tension was thick, nothing that reminiscing about old memories would ever fix.
As I turned my back to her I heard her small voice cry, "I love you." It was too much to bare, we both knew what was coming, yet she chose to make this harder. W

But that doesn't change the past,

And then there are things that need to be screamed.
From past mistakes and hurtful place;

I should have said that i wasn't okay.

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.....

Today was Valentine’s Day...They day or love...The day or happiness…The day for loved ones.
Too bad you had no one on this day, so you kind of felt down. You had your friends but they were out with their boyfriends and girlfriends, so they couldn’t see you. But you had to work anyway at the café. You just served cake and tea, because that was the ‘valentine’s day special.’

One second you told me how beautiful I was
The next it was like I was invisible
I believed we'd have a romance like the notebook
The next Allie and Noah
We'd grow old together and tell our story to the young ones someday
And when I left you'd read our story back to me
I'd make my way back to you if only for a moment
But I've always been too much of a dreamer
ii. I just wanna know how you feel
What do you think of me
Do you find me beautiful?
I find you fascinating
Is it odd I've already picked a song?
I guess that's just how I am
But I screwed everything up rushing last time
I hope I don't do it again
iii. You are such a beautiful girl
One day I will prove this to you
I don't care what it takes, but it's true
You deserve to know it more than anyone
iv. I hope you're starting to believe
That there are some miracles in the world
You were lucky enough to find one
People can call it medicine
But I find myself believing in the little joy

It's been too long since I've seen you,
So when our eyes connected with you today
And you murmured a quiet 'hey'.
I thought that today would be the day that
You and I would reunite,
And it would be like old times
Where you would smile,
And I would laugh,
Because we were so happy together.
Then, you turned to her and flashed a smile;
My heart shattered inside my chest
And fell all over the floor,
Because I realized that it's not me
That you want,
At least, not anymore.
Perhaps, there was a time that you would
Have loved me and cared,
But now, all you can see is her.
You don't even hug me,
You don't even talk with me,
You won't even look at me
When I tell you these things.
What are you afraid of?
It's not like you love me anymore,
So why are you upset that I'm crying?
If you didn't want me to weep,
You shouldn't have betrayed my trust.
I let you into my world,
And you just tossed my key away
So that you could pursue this other girl.

That escaped and flew away
Safe from every piercing shard
That has left and went astray
Would that make you love me?
And if I found your young love
That was kept hidden for all
As innocent as a dove
That is new-born and small
Would that make you want me?
And if I found your desire
That has been asleep so long
When other needs were higher
That wants to make you strong
Would that make you dream again?
And If I found your dreams
That slept a winters' sleep
Not awoken by my screams
That were once thoughtful and deep
Would that make you heal yourself?
And if you loved me
And if you wanted me
And if you dreamed me
And if you healed yourself
Would there still be anything
You wanted to do redo?

But please don't forget me...
I'm tired of the silence
Did you know you can feel it?
Did you know that it's violent?
It strangles you-
Choking the air from your throat
It blinds you-
And makes your thoughts vicious- and they gloat.
It makes you so fragile
Beyond fronts so strong.
And when no one hears you,
Who can say you aren't gone?
When no one remembers
the smallest of things-
Your siblings? Your birthday ?
Just the drawings.
And they HAVE to be perfect
Yes, they Must be Astounding
And they Must be The Best
And they Must be Abounding
Because when you have something good you can do
For a moment or two, others will look at you.

Turned down into a little frown.
You feel ucky,
Just kinda ugly-
But you are beautiful.
Figure so precise,
Makeup giving you a lovely disguise-
You wash your face;
Watching pale cover-up run down like wet lace...
You wipe off that red lipstick,
Forcing a small smile at the reflection-
You want to cry,
Want to fall inside.
They tell you,"You are beautiful."
That you should stand up taller-
It makes you feel good;
Blows up your little ego.
In the end,
When you're eighty years old;
An old grandma..
Looking like a wrinkled fool-
You're insides are what matter,
What counts the most;
So do not fret..
About an oversized nose.
You're forever beautiful-
Not like those models,
Whom tend to skip meals..
