The FloodAs I stare out at the water I wonder, how did this all start? In the days before the final flood, when the TV was still working, I remember the president coming on and saying the icecaps had finally melted, that the world was doomed to flood. I remember how frantic everyone was, to find their family and friends, say their final goodbyes while I, with no family left, simply watched them go by. I still wonder how I survived, when everybody else was frantically gathering supplies and building houseboats. How I, the lazy, the fool, survived so ill prepared.The Flood4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It never stops amazing me, the magnitude of the flood. How this mountain road, once far above the sea, is now a foot underwater. I know soon I will have to go back to my new life of violence and death. There is so little food I have to kill to get it. Wait, what is that speeding towards me? My salvation has come.
Slowly killing meI have never been one to let people get to close to me, I hated when they thought they knew me. The less people know about me the less they can hold over my head, thinking they can pull my strings with it later. Yet, here we are him and I ended up dating. I put as much faith in him as I can in anyone else I don't know if I have made the right choice but I want to think I have. I can't deny that even I enjoy the time we spend somewhere just talking and making jokes about stuff in our lives. He makes it so easy to forget everything bad that has happened. I can say I really like being around him, but something tells me I am slowly letting him kill me.Slowly killing me4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

So I foolishly bought into your every lie. I really wanted to believe you, be able to put my trust in someone just one last time. I am not shocked in the least you were able to lie right to my face.

Loveless on a CliffI stood on the edge of a cliff gazing out to the ocean. The ocean rolled and rumbled with its laughter laughing at me, and my stupidity. I had loved before; I had given my heart away many times before. But every time I've had it smashed and ripped, and maimed and ruined beyond repair. It happened as often as there are petals on a rose my heart has been ruined as well as my capacity to love.

Nightmare of my realityI saunter through these endless halls of mirrors, feeling on edge. I keep my arms out at my side ready to fight any monsters that might feel the need to attack me. Finally stopping at a mirror and looking on with soulless eyes I can't help but wonder, 'Who is that girl she seems so familiar but so much a stranger in so many ways?' then the thought occurs to me that could be none other than me. That is the job of a mirror right to merely reflect what it sees but why does it seem that what I'm seeing isn't me. She seems so sad, so forgotten. It must be the old me the one I abandoned, it would make sense that's why she's sealed her. I think about touching the mirror but then quickly reconsider with all the fears that flood my mind. My hand remains suspended in air as I consider, "What if I slip up and every one sees the real me? What if the mirror shatters leaving me with the old but familiar pain? What if I'm left with nothing but a bleeding hand." I turn to leave convincing myself thatNightmare of my reality4 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

His race was of the noble blood titled the Naka, they were a race that were easy to read, for the person that they were reflected on there skin. Put simply, the beautiful of heart were also beautiful of the body while the vulgar were ugly and deformed. No one knew why the Naka had this ability, though it way rumored that is was because they were descended from angels, while others believed that it was because they were descended from demons, and then there were those that thought that is was all just a big fluke.
Dante's thoughts turned to his condition. Of the Naka it was common to have strikingly beautiful members, and it was rare to have a normal looking person. So the fact that Dante was the ugliest of the Naka for the past Five thousand years of recorded history and perhaps beyond was of epic proportions. Most of the

And the memories will make you cry

All who have been lead astray

A whisper out in the breeze (your voice will not go away)
A moth flying to a flame (Your memories are still with me)
Thinking back to that moment (I wrote your words down on paper)
None of us were to blame (To hide the truth that I could see)
You wrote a song I'll remember
Everytime I hear it I'll smile
I'll think of the times we were together
And how we made life worth while
Of all of those who have left me
You were the one that went away
You were singing an elegy for the living

A place only in my dreams
Dreams no one can hear
And only I can see
I want to see this world I've know
But no one else can see
I want to do the extraordinary
Do something no one else can do
But then I'll feel lonely
So what is it I can do?
Do you want to come with me?
I'll try to find a way
So you can see the place
I've know from my first day
Come with me, Come with me
Into my dreams
Don't you want to come?
You can do anything there
But you have your own place
A place within your dreams
Asimply beautiful place
That you won't want to leave
Is it that I'm crazy?
To ask this thing of you?
I can't help it if I'm so lonely
That I don't know what to do
Come with me, Come with me
To my perfect dream
I need you there
I need you there
Because my perfect dream is you
Drowned by LoveI pounded on the door frantically, trying at the handle every now and then. My hair was beginning to freeze and ice was beginning to stick. I was sure I had frostbite as most of my body was numb or stinging. I was at this point shaking and screaming his name, pounding on the door hoping he would hear me. Finally I saw him walking down his hall, iPod in hand and most likely music blasting in his ears. However when he saw me it fell from his hand and the headphones he discarded. His expression looked like he had seen a ghost. He quickly unbolted and opened the door. He ushered me in and over to the sofa, threw a blanket over my shoulders and then disappeared into the kitchen. "Y .You're an ass " I finally managed to get out from between my chattering teeth. He returned and put a cup of hot tea in my hands that only added to the numbing sensation. The mug shook in my hands; I spared a glance down at my ghostly pale reflection.Drowned by Love4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Like a drunk and his hideous wife
I've been trapped in choir with some of its fans
And I think I've been scarred for life.
They giggled and squealed like chimpanzees
Which only made practicing harder
A part of me died with every squee
And I think that the chimps would be smarter
So I waited until the end of the year
The teacher was truly a jerk
So I told him that I'm never coming back here
It simply is not going to work.
But, alas, my escape was too good to be true
As I quickly and painfully found
For just when I thought that the torture was through
The Book Challenges came around.
I started with romance, my Kryptonite
As the genre of one lucky book
But then it occurred to me later that night
I only had one place to look.
So I went to the basement and carefully took
A book that belonged to my mom
The same that the fangirls revered with amazement
Insisting that it was the bomb.
The book that I chose was Twilight, my friend

There was once a detective named L,
He was a genius, anyone could tell.
But then there was Light,
And try as L might,
For this perfect boy he fell.
Light, busy with his Kira dealings,
Could no longer ignore his own feelings.
He wanted to tell L how he felt,
How he made his heart melt,
But Misas presence had him on various ceilings.
One night when they were all alone,
Light finally felt in the zone.
He turned to L,
And started to tell
The feelings the detective had sown.
Hearing this, L was very glad.
And whoever should blame the Lad?
He had found his very first friend!
His heart did greatly ascend,
While looking at his hot new comrade.
Suddenly, L found himself on the floor,
Being smothered with kisses galore.
Being kissed on the lips,
Straddled at the hips,
And hearing Light demanding for more.
Amidst all this action, Misa came in,
And she thought: Booyah, FTW!
I will tape this and sell it on e-bay!
So she filmed the two having their way,

Banish me from your flower,
Toss me aside like a florist would;
I am no use to you,
I am a pain in your side.
I am a blemish on your delicate rose.
I drain the beauty from her petals,
I drain the life from her green leaves.
The soul of her delicacy is gone.
She is withered like me.

The first scar did kill our culture
By protestant blade our souls did fade
And every day I shall mourn this pass
The grand last fade of mine Jämtland's days

Forget MeMy name is Taylor Lethbridge, and some day, I will die. What you recall of me will fade. My flaws-- too numerous to list-- will vanish from your minds, while what little good I've done will be etched forever on the collective consciousness of those whose paths I have crossed. Some of you will be hurt, shocked, or crushed by my death, while many others will be wholly unaffected. As the months and years pass, I will fade from the thoughts of even those who were closest to me; because that's what needs to happen. Linger on the death of anyone too long, and you're only hurting yourself. Even when I do cross your minds, I will be only a shoddily-assembled facsimile of who I really was; little more than a highlight reel from the 3D imax of my life. So, when I die, I want you to forget me. Love others as I have loved you-- enrich the lives of those you can reach out to-- keep me in your heart; but out of your mind.
