The World of Black and White
Written by michael.m
On Friday, April 6th 2012
I never know is it morning or dark
I never know is it a beauty or a failure
I never know which road I am treading on
I just know how to walk and walk
With all the rest of my power
And with my eyes closed
The wind blows my face gently
Brings me cold and chill to my ashen skin
Finally I find my own freedom
After so long I was a prisoner
Of my routines and boring days
But not anymore
The scent of flowers softly fills my lungs
With the aromas I never smell before
Sweet like the Scily Isles
But tender like roses
I believe there is a garden laid before me
But how far and how big
I never know
Lone grasses and dandelions gracefully touch my hand
Softly linger with my fingers
I can feel the softness of silk
And the comfort of cotton's fiber
I'm so happy
To find that my anguish and despair are gone
But then suddenly I stop
All the feelings disappear
I realize that my eyes are blind

Is there a getting over you?
Please take me there
Because I don't have a clue
And I still do care
But I want to be free from your spell
And I want to break out of this shell
I'm done living this way
It was only for you, and I'm quitting today
I will be running a thousand miles an hour
Just to get away from you right now
This is love gone sour
Perfect was sabotaged somehow
I'm not even going to investigate
No need to operate
It's very clear
While I was here breaking down you didn't shed a tear
You don't care
And now I will leave
Though I still believe
We had the thing so rare

“So Elly, have you decided whom to take this year?” Vanessa Nightray asked as she held out an intricately designed stationary that was the invitation, an excited smile decorating her mature, feminine features.
It was that time of year yet again. And in all honesty, the youngest legitimate heir of the Nightray Dukedom, Elliot Nightray, thought it was all too soon.
Every year on Christmas Eve, a ball would be held by one of the Four Dukedoms in which all of high status, ages 14 and above, is to be invited. The Nightray’s had been the hosts of Elliot’s first ever Christmas party, he didn’t like it. The Barma’s did it
PH - First MeetingOne day, on the Spring of his seventh year, the Nightray household was abuzz with gossips of a new boy that the Nightray Duke brought home.PH - First Meeting3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Rumor had it that when the Nightray Duke arrived yesterday night from a business excursion he had a boy tagging along with him. Said boy was currently residing in the second floor guest room in the west wing.
He was supposedly the same age as young master Elliot, or at least it appeared so. And he had brought nothing with him except the clothes on his back. The maids exchanged what little information they had with each other in hushed whispers never knowing their conversations fell on curious ears.
Once they were satisfied with their gossips, the maids went on to continue with their duties and a small figure, hidden in the shadows suddenly bolted away to the direction of the west wing.
Elliot was feeling fidgety.
He was, of course, excited to meet the new boy. He could imagine it now, he and the new boy would be the best of
Artist ExploitationArtist Exploitation - The New Game Plan:Artist Exploitation2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
My dearest readers,
I have recently learned of a rather disturbing business plan being utilised by business people of an unscrupulous variety.
In essence their plan is simple: They gather art from many applicants and then they publish it as a magazine and sell it COMMERCIALLY!
Now then, why is this a problem? They tend to claim you get the benefits of advertisement and artists will be invited to read their works etc.
Well here's how the scam unfolds:
1. They get the artwork you created and an implied permission of use from you due to the voluntary submission
2. There is no formal written contract, so they can do as they please and you have no legal right to claim redress as you voluntarily submitted your work in.
3. Their potential benefits are a total sham and in essence they are asking you to work for free. Want a dissection? I'll explain:
- The item getting advertised is NOT your work. Your work is a part of the item. What is gettin

Today really wasn't one of her good days. First she had decided to help around the shrine only to be brought down by her familiar's dry remarks about her being useless for that kind of work. That coupled with her stress from school work that morning and also putting up with her fellow classmates teasing she was in an irritable mood.
Cooking had never been one of her strong forts so it was no wonder that between making the rice and boiling the eggs she would finish with a particularly nasty burn on her finger and blood on her lower lip after biting it to control shouting out in shock and pain. Whimpering she sought to lessen her pain somehow but before she even made it to bring it relief a certain someone was tending to it.

Roxas stuffed his hands in his pockets and continued down the long and winding road. A few streetlights lined the dark town but even his own shadow made him feel more alone then ever. Everything seemed to be breaking, he was breaking. Lost his boyfriend, check. Lost his family because of his sexuality, check. Lost a place to live, check. Lost his job, surely was coming.

It was dark; one lonely man stood in a nearly empty parking lot. He had stepped out of his car to go use an ATM machine nearby, as he walked towards the machine a barely audible sound could be heard nearby; the sound of someone cracking their knuckles. The man approached the machine and prepared to use it, when something in the shadows of the night lurked closer. It was very tall; clad in black and odd barbwire-like tendrils protruding from its back. It reached out one of its hands slowly, the man didn’t realize that he was about to be grabbed and crushed by this odd monster.
Suddenly; a cackle was heard. The frightened man turned around quickly, and the hand that was about to grab him drew back. Someone ran across the parking lot, they were dressed in a white hoodie and armed with a single large knife.
“Such a late hour, shouldn’t you be sleeping!?” Jeff the killer rasped maniacally. He reached the horrified and confused man, and then plunged the knife into his
Crazy in love ch.4 The street seemed even more cold since last week. It's been a week since that kiss with Axel, if you can call it a kiss. It was more a brush of the lips, even still, it made my heart beat fast. That makes no sense!! I'm not gay! I don't like guys, I thought I liked girls!! My stare went to my shoes as I stepped into the building. I'm straight, right? You can't just go to being gay by spending one week with a totally HOT guy, right? While my brain was busy trying to figure out my sexuality, my legs stopped their movement. Pain shot threw my head as a hand whacked it. What the hell?!

Crazy in love ch.3 The sun shown in threw my curtains, rudely waking me from my sleep. I sat up with a groan, my back cracking as I did so. Why do I always wake up so early? My head felt like it was weighed down, refusing to stay up. Swinging my legs over my bed, I shakily stood up, getting my barrings. I trudged over to my small bathroom, almost walking right into the wall on the way there. My hands cling to the counter for dear life, holding all my weight up. I lifted my head up just enough to get a glimpse of my figure in the mirror. I looked terrible. My fiery red hair sticking up at weird places. I had dark circles under my eyes. My eyes still looked like they weren't ready to stay open yet. I should go down to a movie set, since I make a pretty convincing zombie right now. Minus the blood and rotting flesh, that is. I turned on the faucet, running my hands threw the freezing cold water. I cupped my hands, filling it with the water.

By the words you shout
I lie crying
I can't calm dawn
You've promised me
You won't do it ever again
But you lied, as always
Such a shame
I don't want to see you
Not ever again
I've got my own life now
Please stay away
Please let me be happy
Don't make me hate myself
It's not all your fault
But you do share a blame
And there is something I've got to say

But stop calling all the time
I don't hate you dad

"Yes, Roxas?" Axel answered.
"Why are there so many stars in the sky?" Roxas asked. Axel and Roxas were lying on a hill, Roxas with his head and hands on Axel's chest, and Axel lying with his hands behind his head. They were doing some star gazing, and Roxas chose this time to ask questions about the sky.
Axel chuckled, thinking that Roxas sounded like an infant. "Well, because Roxas, they've all gathered here to look at your beautiful innocent face," Axel answered. Roxas smiled, and squeezed Axel's shirt.
"Axel, can you tell which stars are planets?" Roxas asked.
"Nope, I don't really care for astronomy. I prefer to stay down here on Earth with my little blonde princess," Axel said, running one of his hands through the blonde hair of his Roxas.
Roxas giggled, squeezing Axel's shirt once more. "But what if I wanted to go to the moon?" Roxas asked innocently.
"Mmm, I guess that I'd have to follow you and bring you back here," Axel said. Roxas let

So, tell me,
You spoke once of love,
So, please, will you tell me now?
What love truly is?
And, will you, share how,
And what is this feeling of bliss?
As I sure as sure don't know.
So, tell me,
You spoke once of romance,
So, please, will you care in sharing?
What it is you hope for?
As I'm sick to death of comparing,
Wishing to be that one you adore,
Cause I just don't know anymore.
So, tell me,
You spoke once of pain,
So, please, I beg, you tell me,
What is the true meaning of heartbreak?
As can't you quite clearly see,
My hearts had all it can take,
And I can't keep making this same mistake.
So, tell me,
You spoke once of perfection,
So, please, I wish for you to explain,
What it is, that's keeps us apart,
For the truth, will send me insane,
As I knew the answers from the very start,
Hidden and locked, forever, in my heart.
So, tell me,
You spoke once of eternity,
Asking me what I wished in life?
That's when I told him I must go,
To carry on, living in sadness and strife,

You looked him in the eyes, told him see,
You don't realise how beautiful you can truly be,
You stroked his cheek, kissed him passionately,
I prayed to God he'd soon be me.
And as you laid upon his bed,
I tried counting sheep instead,
Maybe the sheep will leave me misled,
And you'll cease to exist in my head.
So when I see you stroking his face,
Instead I'll imagine a secluded space,
Where the sheep are pretty in their embrace,
However their forlorn as if fallen from grace.
The sheep are broken beyond repair,
They're crying out but noones there,
How can the whole world be so unaware,
Of the sheeps sadness and despair.
So as I count my broken sheep,
I delve into a deeper sleep,
As in my dreams the nightmare creeps,
And I am left alone to weep.
Oh would someone please explain,
Why the sheep I count show such disdain,
I created them but not in pain,
So how am I the one to blame?
The sheep they leave my world unknown,
And still I'm left here on my own,

Along with her cries
Please she begs him, stop
But he continues to pull down his fly
He pins her to the table,
Maybe the chair or the bed
It really depends on the time of the day
He could choose another place instead.
She struggles the first time
the second time or fourth
But soon enough she gives up
when all she gets is more
More of what she doesn't want
More of this pain
She doesn't make a sound anymore
Or he will bring out the chain.
He is never nice
Rough and hurts her all over
He doesn't stop until he gets what he wants,
Her to moan as he gropes her.
And she knew she has to do it
Because if she doesn't he will never stop.
So she acts as if in a porno
An act she will never drop.
He brings more mates with him now
For a quick fuck and some fun.
They have been told she is the biggest slut
And from no cock she will run.
They are just like him, their evil smiles
Maybe worse at times too
They never stop until they see fit
Which is normally after a few.

To the tears that once fell,
And the thoughts that used to dwell,
As I won't be joining you in hell.
You're the one I wish to see no more,
The one who watched my teardrops fall,
The one who laughed as I hit the floor,
And left me alone to crawl.
You were killing me with the microphone,
The vocals, well they had me thrown,
I was dying but I was in the zone,
You were sending me off to the unknown.
Looks like yours could kill,
Torture and torment until,
I'll appear lifeless and still,
Your intent will clearly fufill.
But if there's one thing I've found,
It's what goes around comes around,
So watch out for that sound,
The gun shot, the fall to the ground.
Time to turn off the rock N roll,
Sex and drugs killed the soul,
The whisky and the wine stole,
The sanity left, that kept you whole.

I feel the wind pass me by,
Passing through last years madness,
The grass has never appeared so green,
And the sky such a vivid blue,
Yet colourless they still appear,
Since you left me, withering in sorrow,
Even in this warmth I shiver to think,
Of the pain and hurt which will never cease,
Sighing, only I am to blame for this~
Although silent I can hear it clearly,
The violins forever play my melody of sadness,
Each note cuts me deeper within,
However painless compared to the words you said to me,
I'd give anything to hear your voice now,
Even if you killed me at least I'd die happy,
As I know nothing of happiness without you,
If I were to lie forever, still, in your arms,
Well wouldn't that be nice~

Scattered papers torn amongst the floor,
Splattered with tears and ink,
Another Romeo and Juliet,
Under loves burden do I Sink?
My Knight in shining armour,
A fairytale come true,
Who needs their prince charming,
When I'm lost in you.
He took me to the ballroom,
Just my prince charming and I,
And there he took my hand,
As we danced in the moonlit sky.
It was there he said he loved me,
As I held on with my life,
He told me he'd take care of me,
Of my pain, my heart, my strife.
Just another girl meets boy,
Except this girl was deceived,
Fooled by her supposed Romeo,
Oblivious to all he had acheived.
As you see this darlin' Romeo,
Loved to watch his girls fall,
She was now just one of many,
Beggin' him for more.
Well prince charming I thank you,
After all you made me this way,
You said you'd always be there,
For eternity and a day.
You always told me I was beautiful,
I looked my best in red,
Well my dear I think it's time,
You wore that red instead.
Well my darlin' how beautiful you are,
