Of Storms and HugsA violent storm was raging. Rain poured down. Lightning flashed. Thunder roared.Of Storms and Hugs5 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
The city had not seen a storm of the likes of this one for quite some time. School had been cancelled for the day because of it. The streets were empty- families were huddled behind locked doors, safe in the warmth of their homes.
On a lonely rooftop, however, one boy stood, in the midst of the storm, all alone, save for ten kites. He was almost invisible through the sheets of rain. But he was there.
The storm raged on outside Kai's apartment, just as bad as the weather forecast had predicted. He watched the rain pour, looking out his window instead of at the
A Deliberation on DeathDeath overhanging like a cliff,A Deliberation on Death4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a storm cloud waiting on the horizon,
Dark and too long a fall for sanity
Or self-preservation to contemplate.
Death, overhanging, waiting, takes up
His glass and motions for Time to do
The same. Time does the same.
It's not like he has a choice anyway;
The puppet master, overhanging,
Hanging over, dangling strings,
Time afraid of his own imminence.
"To Death's whims." All to his whims.
And we think we can escape,
We ignore his presence
Or maybe we just get used to it.
But he is ever-menacing, brewing,
Behind the final curtain…and when
It lifts…what do you expect?
Hate Myself TodayWhat's your sin?Hate Myself Today2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A lot of people say it's pride or lust, or wrath. Hell, they even say it with a hint of pleasure. Like it's some secret that they get to share with the world. But when I answer, my tone holds bitterness, like the taste of something you can't get out of your mouth.
Maybe it's not envy. Maybe it's that self loathing feeling of "You're not good enough". Does that count as envy? The desire to want to be someone else? To be your own worse enemy? He looks at me like he doesn't believe me. Like I'm making it up.
What do you have to feel envy about?
I glare at him. He knows how much I hate this

My Head To Rest
It was the shudder of the wind
Which through the window crept
And the chills beneath my skin
As Mother sat and wept
Although the pain was far too great
I held my head up high
I sat and played my role as bait
Maintaining precious pride
Blood blanketing my fingers
I held my life in place
As feelings for him linger
His lips against my face...
I'd lose my love today
My body engrossed in sweat
I heard them walk away
But I wasn't gone yet
Against the Hounds of Hell
I'd take one final stand
My own life I would sell
With just a ready hand
Diminishing was my health
And move, I could not

Tasuku grimaced inwardly at the approach of a certain annoying voice. He was sitting at the bar in the guild around his usual time. Normally, his day consisted of him wandering around the town, just exploring for spots where he could think in peace, but he couldn't avoid his new home. It had been a month since he came to Fairy Tail. He was intrigued by the mages here and since that first day, no one ever turned him away. It was a safe place...for once.
“Taniku!” The voice had collided with his back as the little creature climbed up onto his shoulder.

The Black Widow and Her Three Victims CH.123-year-old Cecelia Yamamoto rummaged through one of her old boxes in the basement. The hidden basement to be exact. Only she knew about it, no one (not even her husband) knew about it. Because it was hidden, she kept some of her more...personal belongings down in the basement. Then she heard a car door shut, and she still hadn't found what she was looking for. "Damn it!" she silently cursed. She quickly ran up the attic stairs and opened the door without making a sound. Over the years, Cecelia had acquired a special skill: she could do anything quickly and quietly. That was actually very vital for her.

You left me, but you never saw the real me.
You took it all away.
I thought you were going to stay.
Were we not good enough.
Was life so tough?
I know you thought it was okay.
But did ever think about?
That everything I ever thought was just simply nothing, but doubt.
I'm nothing without you.
I had someone there.
Did you actually care?
When I told you a final farewell.
How many hotels did you stay in?
That's when this tore me apart it happened to me many times over...
This when I started taking the blade to my skin.
Do you know how it feels to be so lonely?

I sat on the wall in hell replaying the situation in my head. "What's going on? Am I- am I dead?" I asked as I looked at the guy standing next to me. He didn't respond to what I had asked. His black eyes scared me slightly. I still didn't really have a clue about what was going on. All I knew was I was dead. That's it, plain and simple. I looked down at the fiery pit I was sitting next too. The heat resonating off of it was so hot it started burning my soul. Quickly I jumped down off the wall and backed away from the lava pit.

Knowing that you have won, but didn't earn it.
It's not that we were mad, or things were bad.
You didn't like where we were, and I concur.
We skipped all that was required, like a roaring flame with out a fire.
Was there more that you desire? No, not in its entire.
You just want what we missed. Missed due to our blinding bliss.
So lets go back to what we first adored. Then someday we can make it more.
Not too soon, and not with haste. For it is our lives we would waste.
And even if our minds should change. It's still love that remains.

I hated that haircut, but I loved you enough not to mention it.
Well, maybe I didn't hate it so much. It brought out your eyes. And your smile. Nothing can hide your face anymore, because you don't really wear hoodies. I don't think I've ever even seen you with a hood up. You don't even try to hide from me.
I love your face. A little pimpley, but that never bothered me. Although you probably think it does. It's still the sexiest, warmest, and most inviting face I have ever seen.

Lying there thinking in my bed, A million thoughts race through my head,
About all the things we did, last November.
I wonder how long it will take, until the day I wake,
to see the pretty face, that I remember.
And it's obvious to me,
that this will be
Another sleepless night,
that will haunt me again.
As I blink my eyes, my mind's hypnotized
Sorting through the lies, but I could care less.
All those things you told me weren't true
but what am I to do. My mind is just a mess.
And it's obvious to me,
that this will be
Another sleepless night,
that will haunt me again.

im tempted to believe him
i love him more then anything in this world
everything he does when were together,
the time spent wrapped in his arms,listening to music, staring into each others eyes,or just plain goofing off
the way he kisses my lips and neck and plays with my hair,the way he holds my hand under the dinner table,just out of my parents sight
i want to give everything to him,but am i ready?
yet still through all the hours spent with him it's never enough
less then 2 years and we'll be seperated.

Built of lies

To ease our pain
and how we mend
We're all the same
In how we sing
For things we hold
So dear with hands

In a dark cold place with no one to hear me.
The concrete floor chilled my skin as my bare feet rested upon them.
Where was everyone?
Are they here?
Am I going insane?
Thunder cackled outside as the heavy nights rain endured.
My carefully polished black nails scratched at my skin.
Big ugly black tears strolled down my face.
He had hurt me.
He always hurt me.
With his harsh words and handsome face, he was my weakness.
A weakness which I hated.
I hated being vulnerable.
I hated showing my emotion.
He had me under his spell.
With his raven hair and devilish eyes, I fell for him.
He would never catch me.
