'IB' - Chapter Five
As Dib stood outside of his home, he couldn't help the overwhelming loneliness that washed over him. After the neighbours reaction, he highly doubted anyone would take him seriously. Not like they had taken him seriously before anyway.
On top of the extreme aloneness, the boy was feeling a massive amount of paranoia. His house had proven to be just as dangerous a place to be now, and after seeing how easily and quickly Zim could infiltrate it, he realized he would never feel at peace inside of it. He would always be looking around himself, checking to make sure he was truly alone.
Dib took only small, slow steps towards the house now, his eyes flicking everywhere as he scanned for any threats. He was quite jumpy now though, so when a small leaf flew by him he jumped backwards a step and let out a high pitched scream. He began to breathe rapidly until realizing it was just a leaf before taking a deep breath and staring forward again, his eyes continuing to scan his environm
Freedom For Your Soul in A MinorMusic is timeless. Real music surpasses the test of the hour. It takes a hold of you, and it nests you in its arms. It fills you with feeling; overflowing at times with overwhelming impact. If you close your eyes, you just might feel it more.Freedom For Your Soul in A Minor9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Music connects people in a way I have yet to see else do. It can attach itself to memories steadfastly; beginning to grow inside of you like a musical vine of sorts, wrapping itself around your experiences.
It’s pure and genuine; real music doesn’t take too kindly to falsities — sincerity is its DNA, it makes it what it is.
Music is insight; one song can teach, touch, and tell me, more than anything else could attempt to do. It’s my favourite expression, thus far, there’s so much beauty in creating and sharing music. It shows you a world of possibilities, stringed together by a tune, it’s “Freedom For Your Soul in A Minor”.

Only Takes OneIt only took a single cut.Only Takes One9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
One slit upon her skin.
That one tiny little cut,
Shows the pain that she was in.
I hold her tiny hand in mine,
As tears escape my eyes.
Why didnt I just listen?
To her desperate little cries?
I look at her in agony.
I re-read the note she wrote.
All it took was one small cut,
To open her small throat.
I try to stop the bleeding,
But it's too late, she's dead.
I start to read the note once more,
This is what she said:
"Dear family and dear friends,
Life is too hard for me.
It only takes one single cut,
To set my spirit free.
"With a heavy heart I state-
That this is my final day.
I will miss you all so much,
That is all I wish to say."
My dearest friend is dead.
Her life on Earth is done.
I cant believe that she is gone,
And all it took was one.

Cause new damage to my skin.
I want to see my other half,
See the pain I hold within.
I trusted you to help me,
I trusted you to care.
And everytime I need you most,
You are never there!
Well, I hope you're happy.
For today my life is done.
I'm glad that I have met you,
This short time has been real fun.
I know you do not love me,
So I press the blade against my wrist,
I just want to make you happy;
Even if I can't exist.
I grab the rusty blade,
And slice right to the bone.
The reason for me doing so,
Is that you left me all alone.
You walked away from me,
Knowing I was gonna die.
You saw me with my knife,
Why did you leave? Just why?
Now I am forever bleeding,
I see you walk back through the door.
"I'm sorry my dear friend,
I couldn't take it anymore."
You apologise and hold me,
I whisper, "Please don't cry.
I know you're only faking,
I just need to bleed and die."
You yell, "I am so sorry!
Is there something I can do?"
I whisper, "No one can save me.
No one, not

You always know what to say
Your words come oily smooth
cloying with decay
rotten from the seed
There's honeyed poison in your mouth
And it's time to eat your words

My body's getting weak,
I'm dying, and I'm lonely
And I feel like such a freak.
Everybody leaves me,
They all left me here to die,
They all left me in the cold,
They left me alone to cry.
Did I do something wrong?
I do not understand.
All I really need right now,
Is just a gentle hand.
I need someone to help me
Get out of this dark place.
I need someone to trust me
And not say I'm a disgrace
I need a friend forever
A friend who will always stay
A friend to bring me back the light
And never walk away....

is still a day away
Rest your head
Then fill with dread
for sleep won't come your way
Toss and turn
while your eyes burn
with visions of the past
Then you blink
because you think
tonight could be your last
You are sure
that is your cure
Embracement of the end
To cease strife
It is your life
which you must not defend.

He is my enemy.
I hate him.
I always have,
Then, he stops.
"Do you remember that night, Dib...? Hmm?"
No... Please... Don't make me remember...
So very long ago.
The night they WERE something more,
To each other.
The night when they set out,
Not to hurt each other,
But to pleasure each other.
One night of bliss,
Then it was gone.
Zim was gone the next day,
Not sleeping next to Dib, as was expected.
And from then on,
It wasn't mentioned.
Except on occasions,
When the Irken wanted to make the boy suffer,
That one night,
So long ago.

The stars shine unchalanged by the clouds
The air is cool but not deathly cold
The breeze is constant but not overwhelming
The water was calm and enticing
And even though
We can't be together
I wish I had you to hold

And then I realized, my dream was real…

My Dark HeartMy Dark Heart5 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The pain in my heart is unbearable,
My soul is like a empty black hole.
On my heart, there is a scar.
A scar that will never be healed.
The scar has been cut deeper and deeper over the years, from all my mistakes and embarrassments.
I tried to heal my heart and make the scare go away by looking at the good things in life. But. The bad memories come back stronger then ever before.
There are scares on my arm, the pain from the scares makes the pain in my heart go away for a short while.
My friends had told me to stop cutting but they don't fucking know the pain that I have felt! Nobody will.
My black soul is empty, my black heart is wounded. I feel like a nobody from kingdom hearts, wishing to be whole again. But never will be . . .
Will I ever be whole? Or remain heartless?
I will just have to wait and find out.

Let me walk you 'round the floor
If you look off to your left
you'll see the girl i was before.
The tiles might be broken
But its nothing time can't fix
But if you think its art-work
Then all the broken parts will mix.
And the doorknobs may not work
But you can crawl through like spies
The holes you made with your fist
Are looking just your size.
The mirror in the hallway
Has seen some better days
And although you may see yourself
It's not uncommon to also see haze.
And the windows may be drafty
But i promise its not too cold
And if you can deal with that
I'm sure that you'll be sold.
And you see here in the closet
That the lightswitch doesn't work
But that only because
There are inner demons that lurk.
The picture frames are empty
But thats only an attempt to forget
All the fun i once had
And the soul that I once bet.
There's shattered glass in the bedroom
From when you told it was goodbye
And i let the bird out of it's cage
Knowing it would die.
But the basem

A tale told from a world serene
To describe while it remains unknown
A grim venture no one should condone
I went down this path so wrought with great pain
Always onward searching for the true gain
What would she do if she knew I spoke of her
Such a mighty wrath for this I would incur
In the end will my great toils be for naught
Perhaps I might earn all that which I sought
But in my heart I know it can't be
My true essence always she will see
I look down, my blood dripping red
Should I give up and lie here, dead?
SuicideThere once was a girl who hated the world because of the pain within. On the outside she appeared just fine. But her sanity was wearing thin. Pain and hate and guilt were hidden deep inside her mind. But it grew and increasingly she broke down from time to time. No one knew of her burdens since she hid them very well. No one would've ever guessed that soon she'd say her last farewell. Her family expected too much from her and spoke in an indifferent and hypocritical way. She felt worthless and useless and stupid and ashamed. It was the same cycle every day. Her friends provided little comfort for they were all rather opinionated. Their disregard to her when she tried to speak out left her lonely and suffocated. The only person that she believed she loved was manipulative and played games with her head.
