The Crooked Man - David (Poem)This is what I amThe Crooked Man - David (Poem)1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am the crooked man
My life is a mess
Everything is hopeless
No matter what you say
Things will always be this way
My love had left me
Because I could not see
She thought I could not give
What she wanted, I thought I did
My dream was to fly
But I was color blind
So I faked my sight, a challenge I faced
They called me traitor, those years a waste
Then there was that night
My mother was not that bright
I hurt my only family
This is my insanity
This is what I am
I am the crooked man
Gretel and the WitchLight poured down between the tiny gaps of the leaves, illuminating small spots of the forest, but not all of it. Somewhere deep within this dark forest, abandoned and all alone, lay a young girl of no older than eighteen. Her frame had once been shapely and beautiful, but now looked scrawny and exhausted. Little more than a pile of skin and bones, with limp locks of blonde hair lying disheveled around her.Gretel and the Witch2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Her eyes were half-closed, only just barely staying open as her weak arm lay over her empty stomach. How many days had it been? All of her efforts to find food had been for naught, and any time she'd been found by wild animals she'd run and run and used up all of her energy, making her even hungrier.
It had been just a few days previous, when she had still been living with her parents. They were poor, but they were able to get by. Or at least, it had seemed that way. But her parents had begun to grow desperate. Simply to prolong their own lives in poverty, they had led her into the
Burning God Dio watched the little dark haired girl leave as the world around him burned. He had grown attached to her as the night progressed; she was so brave, so smart, so beautiful. He could see why her mother was so desperate to protect her, if Aya were turned into a doll that proud spirit she had would be destroyed. Dio didn’t want that. So he protected the younger girl, just like her mother asked. He hadn’t expected to grow fond of her though.Burning God1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
He wasn’t a fool, he knew it was impossible. Dio was dead, a corpse given life and sustained by the power of a curse cast by a scorned woman; once the night was over and the mansion burned to the ground he would be gone. Even still, he couldn’t help his thoughts. He still asked himself that awful question. What if? What if things were different? Would he have stood a chance then?
Dio was burning; he didn’t much care, he was already dead; it hurt, but only a little, his thoughts hurt far more. A small,

Cop!2p!America x Cop!Mute!Reader Cause of Death
A petite girl with worn and tangled auburn hair wakes up somewhere cold and dark. She smells salt and grime, and as she struggles to open her eyes a sickness overcomes her. ‘Nnh.. My head… What… What happened? Where am I?’ The girl thought to herself as she struggled to regain conciseness.
Her wrists are bound, and she sees that she is lying in a dingy corner of a small room. Overhead, a bare bulb shines a wan, pale yellow light that burns her eyes and causes her to look back down at her chafed wrists that are cut and bleeding.
‘The last thing I remember is the club.’ Flash backs of pounding music and dark colored lights fill her memory as she tries to recall what she had done after she left the club. Turning her head she sees a masked man standing at a work

Beneath this bandage,
Is a terrible sight,
I wish I didn't turn,
To fill you with fright.
Half of my face,
Burnt and bruised,
A sacrifice in which that was used.
A walking corpse,
I now lay dead,
Brought back by a curse,
I see a light ahead
What 'happened in the past',
Before I met you,
Before I fell in love,
With eyes so blue
Now surrounded by flames,
The wood begins to burn,
'He' is a monster,
and will never learn
'Goodbye' I said,
A with a kiss,
The door opens
For you to dismiss
A day to live
Y et another to come
A Hope to see your face in the Sun

It was autumn. To be more specific it was October. You lived in Finland and everything that used to be green was all different colours and tree leafs were inevitably falling to the ground. Soon trees would be naked and it would still take some time before it was time for snow to cover them, the streets and everything in this small city you lived in. The darker these autumn evenings came, you felt more tired and you wanted to hibernate until it was summer again. Gentle summer breeze was like a distant memory and that made you depressed.
The door closed behind you and you gave out a long sigh. Finally you were home after a tiring day at work/school. Weekend was finally at hand and you had already planned of spending it under your warm blankets in your bed and most importantly with your laptop. There were quite many anime series you wanted to watch and you decided to flip a coin rather than just choosing one. That would at least bring some excitement.

Since his defeat against Aizen, Urahara has already warned him of his Spirit Pressure going down, and he may lose all of his Shinigami powers. And he has been careful. He still continues his job as Substitute Shinigami, with Rukia, basically taking over Imoyama's [THAT'S NOT MY NAME!] job as he watches over Karakura Town.
