Even the fools daydream...
That something could go on well,
oh, for a single time
they build castles in the air,
daring to hope, dream
to find a temporary haven of peace
to escape to during the winter
and dream of spring...

waiting that my white wings

I'm seeking a sign of your
dark presence upon me
remembering with burning longing
all those soft kisses exchanged
during the warm summer nights...

me, a musky, oceanic scent that
clings to me in this hurricane
and while i am homeless until i
return to your arms, there's always
a period of anxiety, a pacing (if you will)
i want you to mourn for me the
way my father does, but you've
never loved someone with my kind of hurt
i want you to spend dreamless
nights the way i do, with rings
beneath my eyes, wondering
how love could ever last
but i have come to know the
emanation of despair as it barks
at me like a dog that's seen another of its kind -
and i miss you the way i miss myself -
sometimes, or not at all.

And in that very moment, I knew it was already too late
My vision has adjusted
The memories of my former life all just slipped away
My light has faded
The last of the fallen sparks fluttered in the distance
My hope has been obliterated
The shadows rose to claim their long awaited radiance
My destiny was always fated
In my heart, I lost it all
To this very second, it's still my fault
In my body, I have been tainted
From all of the damage I sustained
In my mind, I felt everything snap
I smiled as all of the colors turned black
In my soul, I had to let it all go
Cradled by the darkness is all I will ever know

(Y/N) continued to wonder why in the world the corporal called her to his office. She was smart, cunning, and always found ways around her problems. (Y/N) approached Levi's door and hesitated for a moment, before rapping her knuckles on the dark wood three times.
"State your name and business," Levi called from inside of his room.
"(Y/N) (L/N), you called me here, sir."
Without waiting for a response, (Y/N) entered the meticulously clean room where the 5'3" Corporal sat at his desk. She then proceeded to sit down on the empty chair across from Levi.
"Is anything wrong Corporal?" (Y/N) asked.
"Well for starters," Levi replied, "just because you knock on someone's door doesn't mean you can barge on in like you own the place," He took a sip of his tea before continuing, "it has come to my attention that you seem to have the notio

Because you believe that if I am not happy,

There are countless shades of emotion,
each one varying slightly in taste and color.
Do you believe that the pity on your face will somehow bring me happiness?
Shall I then liken your hideous grin to anger and madness?
So be it, two can play at this.

You took a deep breath in.
“Okay, listen up, here’s how this is going to work. I don’t like you and you don’t like me. That much we have in common.” You spoke gruffly, trying to sound determined, and offered your clichéd ultimatum. “Now we can do this the easy way. Or the hard way.”
The horse whickered back and shoved its head into a pile of hay, where it began to chew noisily. Clasping the leather bridle hard, you narrowed your eyes.
“Hard way it is then, you odd toed ungulate,” you growled, and stepped forward. The task should have been simple. Ready the horse to ride; that meant sticking a bridle and saddle on it. Easy. Sadly this was

As I walked down the corridor leading to the office of corporal Rivaille, I could not avoid blushing, holding tight to my chest a folder containing the documents that he was waiting, cursing myself for the disposability with which I had accepted the request of the squad leader Hanji Zoe.
Even though I knew she hadn't done it on purpose to put myself in that situation, I could not avoid to consider the opposite hypothesis, wondering if she had realized how nervous I was to meet for the first time him that was called by all humanity's stronger soldier.
I was so taken by my thoughts that I almost went in the wrong direction, forgetting the directions that had been given me to get to his office, but in the end I managed, somehow, to reach it without other problems.
I knocked on the door hoping him to be in a good mood, passing unconsciously an hand through my hair while waiting for his permission to enter the room.

Those who I have broken I will fix
I'm done with this thought that I'm nothing
Cause I'm something that no one will never be
I'm done crying myself to sleep
I will laugh at the thought
I will never pick that blade up again
Cause if I will cut something it will be paper
I will cut paper
With my pen
I will write my emotions
And I will not hide
I'm not evil
I will cut my paper
I will use my deadly weapon
I feel bad for the item I'm covering in ink
I know how it feels to be covered
I know how it feels to be cornered
I will not take any pills
This is my medication
I will learn
Something that we all have known
When we were kids
I will learn to
Love myself again

just as your words always found cracks in weakened armor,
and with the same fluidity that constantly drew my gaze,
filling me with childish need atop the comfort of company,
even if lonely:
we were never ones to stand individually.
Then you play my heart strings,
with the skill of devoted pianists and the poise
of Egyptian princes,
garbed in such confidence I have no choice but to move my lips
to words hummed beneath your steady breath;
the words my heart stammers over,
as weak a fool as ever.
Necessities mash like fevered lips,
merging us as one being,
one entity of which to rejoice with proclamations of fragile love.
and when our lips do make war,
I kiss you into my own oblivion,
drawing you deeper inside me to dwell and comfort,
though you decay fleshly walls
and expanding sacks of breath,
a bloody clash of love producing broken wills and such
mangling us further towards impending destruction:

Second Person POV
You sat on the floor in Levi's office, watching him do paperwork. He looked exhausted. From what you could tell, he must've skipped sleeping last night. You looked at the ceiling for a second, and as soon as you turned back, there was a sleeping Corporal.
He looked, well, cute. His head was tilted slightly to the left, and, although he wasn't smiling, there was a peaceful look on his face. And for once, he looked vulnerable. This thought made a slight blush rise to your cheeks. However, you didn't know what to do... You thought of waking him up because he needed to finish his paper work. But you decided to let him sleep.
Just then, a hyper Hanji bursted through the door.
"Shorty! I've got mor-"

'Where did Max go?' I asked myself as I ran through the millions of screaming people. Some were already dead or injured. Just as I was about to give up hope and run back my Father a hand grabbed my shoulder and turned me around. I sighed in relief as I saw the worried features of my brother.
"Where is Dad?!" He asked, worry clear in his voice.
"Back at the gate, we need to go back and get him." I said as people ran around like confused lost puppies. We took off into a run, getting closer to the gate. The bodies of some Garrison Members were already littered on the ground. I froze in place as titans slowly poured inside the gate.

I used to feel fear
I used to believe
Was my Master.
Was my Mistress.
Was my Lord.
But now I know
They have no claim over me.
I am free
From their control
I am not theirs;
I know to whom I belong.
Fear is not my keeper,
Misery has no rule over me,
Agony cannot order me;
I am not theirs!
Joy is my friend
Peace my master
Strength my guard
Freedom my keeper
These are to whom I belong.
I am Theirs,
I was delivered to them by Faith
Now I know,
Fear has no hold
Misery will have no sting
For I am not theirs!
Strength will carry me,
Faith will set me free,
Wisdom will guide me,
Freedom will welcome me,
Joy will take me in,
And Peace will follow.
Death has no hold
Fear has lost its grip
Agony no longer has control
They have no hold!
I was set free
And I will sing
For I am free,
My former Masters
Will never capture me.
I am home where I belong
And there I will stay.

''What? It's true!''
Soft chuckles escaped the girls mouth as you clenched your eyes shut and prayed that they didn't know that you were actually awake. Ymir continued to comment about you and how you weren't being your 'true' self, whatever that meant. You wondered how she could see through your shell, you were bitter at the edge, riddled by many years of pain of torture. It made sense that you would put on a mask to hide what you were truly feeling.
Soon enough, the girls fell asleep and you were left alone with your thoughts. For a moment, you had wondered why you had joined when you couldn't even trust your comrades. How could you trust them when all they did was talk behind your back? Your mind flashed to the hateful comments that people had thrown to you today, tears spilled out of your eyes as you slapped your hand across your mouth to keep quiet. Your shoulders shook as you muffled your cries, hoping that no one could

The storm turned out to be more severe than originally anticipated, causing most of the inhabitants to remain indoors for every hour of the day. That would be a good idea if, you know, the storm didn't last for almost two weeks. Fortunately, the blunt force part of the storm passed when it first rolled in days ago, with severe wind, thunder, lightning and a few tidal waves, it was safe to assume that the storm stirred much more than the local waters. The waves caused a lot of concern amongst the islanders - many believed that armageddon had finally arrived, and another flood was about to wipe out mankind. You thanked the goddesses above that the barriers were doing their jobs, halting the flow of water whenever a wave hit the barrier. However, that didn't stop the rain - yes it was true that the storm had calmed down considerably the next day, but that didn't seem to stop the rain from falling, much to everyone irritation.

Self hatred, loathing, misery

Reasons make no difference
They stand scarred, never alone
