Or do you choose not to look?
I want to share my story,
But you close me like a book.
I'm screaming as I cry,
But you refuse to hear.
Look away as I die,
Ignore each little tear.
Am I not loud enough?
Is that why you ignore my scream?
My life is tough,
Help me escape this bad dream.
I scream a bit higher.
Please, I need your help!
My circumstances are dire.
I'm losing myself.
But you do not help me,
And I've decided to give up.
Maybe then you'll see.
Ha! That's just my luck.

was all she said
and I had the uncomfortable
feeling of being haunted.
I let her legs
and red nails
do the talking -
stories I grew up
not believing in,
silver spoons and moons
hung so low
I could taste them,
and autumn lost
between her shoulders.
I never said the right words
and night retreated
when she turned her head
We let the candles burn -
rich foliage of air
the only traces left.

swells this hollow garden
and somewhere in the yard
a tire swing goes flat
against the skyline.
It chokes the autumn light
in the silo,
the crush of
mums and ragged berries
It bubbles in the percolator
steeping still life
in the caul
of early morning -
the red-brown crumbs
of breakfast toast and jam
growing ghosts upon
And deep inside
I still hear you waking up
the soft salute
of morning voices
stirring the wind
outside my window.

It was winter in (town/city name), which was located in (country name), and it was -3°degrees. You were coming home from your job, at the local vet, and you were wearing a thick (favorite colour) hoodie, long thick black sweat pants and cream coloured snow boots.
Stopping, you looked around as mist started to cover the pathway through the small forest. Suddenly a misty-wolf stepped out of nowhere, and walked towards you. A shivering cream wolf pup hung from its jaw, you could see its tail and back legs were a darker cream colour.
The misty-wolf placed the pup near you, and nudged it forward a little, before turning around and disappearing, its body becoming the mist itself. Seeing that the pup was shivering more, as it was now in the snow, you ran over, taking off your (favorite colour) hoodie while running. Ignoring the cold that was now hitting your uncovered arms, you wrapped the ho

"Miss Stackhouse, it would be good for you to wake up. I wouldn't want you drowning under my watch."
The voice talking now got your attention and hastily you sat up and looked shocked at the one talking. It was the boy that carried you out of the church and let you sleep in one of his rooms.
Right when you opened your mouth you noticed that you still didn't know his name and he was still staring right into your eyes.
"Miss Stackhouse, you might want to get a towel." was all he said when he handed you a very fluffy fabric.
Right then your cheeks turned bright red of embarrassment and you squeaked quietly while warping the towel around your body. Not to get into another stranger situation you climbed out of the tub only to slip on the cold and wet tiles but the vam

More precious than anything I ever saw.
He was hiding in the shadows,
Unnoticed by those who never look.
But I saw him, filled with light,
With a heart of gold and calming warmth.
I saw him, hiding in the darkness,
Hoping for some light to reach his eyes.
I knew what he was waiting for,
I knew how he felt, day for day,
Where hope seemed unreachable,
That boy whose life seemed worthless and dark.
I saw the surprise he felt,
When I stopped and reached towards him,
"What are you doing in that corner?
Look around, it's a bright and sunny day!"
Slowly he nodded and stood,
his large eyes finally turned towards the light,
his children's face almost too thin
to hold that rare smile, more precious than a diamond.
But as he stepped towards me
His smile wavered and died,
As doubt invaded his mind,
And happiness seemed just a dream.
"Why would you help me?
I have nothing to give."
I smiled and took his little hand,
Leaving behind the darkness he knew.

An angel long fallen from grace
Her wings gone limp, her soul empty
The ghosts of tears on her face
The scars on her arms told the story
of battles she long ago lost
Etched in her eyes was the pain
hidden behind blue was the cost
I took the broken angel before me
and kissed every scar on her arm
And though I am far from a hero
I promised to protect her from harm
Together we'll face down her demons
No longer will she fight alone
Slowly her heart will grow stronger
Protected now by my own

I’m spending most of my time
not crying, and I’m sorry,
but I don’t think I’ll ever love anyone
as much as aspirin, or lullabies,
or the cheap wine sold for two dollars a bottle,
or overly-apologetic letters bending over backwards
to make a point of themselves, or the pink petals
blooming on my wrists like flesh and blood miracles,
or the songs named after women
things may not change,
but you will have to.
I am most alone
surrounded by people
and the buzzing in my head of words
that should have lost their meaning
back when I discovered
they never meant anything
Dedications are only relevant
to people who appreciate shitty poetry,
or you. Insanity is writing the same thing
over and over and expecting it not
to sound clichéd.
and as much as anyone will swear otherwise,
I am a statistic. A number, an example,
a case study in the manipulation of

Just like people the animals hold their own societies, but whilst we elect to live in houses within or outside of cities the animals choose to remain outside all together. Take the fox, perhaps the most cunning and certainly among the dangerous of all animals to roam the woods. The foxes reigned proud in the centre of the woods, kings and queens among the animals there, feared and respected by all who wasn't a fox.
However like the societies of man, the foxes were capable of being unjust and cruel. In the coven of the foxes was born a youngling, he wasn't a runt nor was he a high ranking male but yet he was spurned by all whom was a fox. He wasn't sure why, he didn't feel too different from all the others. He walked like they did and acted like they did yet no matter what his endeavours it only got him shame from his parents and hatred from the coven. So the young fox grew to be alone.
The years and the foxes were unkind to the young fox, he learned to

GAY AS AN INSULTSince I see it all the time, homosexuality used as an insult, examples, (gay, fag, gay, fagot, queer, etc.) so I thought I would write about why you should not use it as an insult. There are 3 main reasons:GAY AS AN INSULT2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
1. It is offensive, like, take an example "Your fucking fagot!" is something you can say to anyone, heard it 1000 times, often aimed towards people calming to be straights, and all other possible orientations.
You don't say it as a positive thing; you say that like its negative to be gay, is it? And if you believe that, why do you tell people? You remember when it was common to use "nigger" as an insult? It came to an end (where I live at least), why, because it is offensive! Exactly the same with homosexuality.
2. It is misused, let's take a straight guy there is no doubt, "John", Marcus can manage to say to John that he is a "fucking homo", right? Maybe because he is mad at him, even though John is not gay. it is used in the wrong context, just as nigger before, one from Cro

Cookie Krisp and Cursed Bunny's Mary Sue Guide (Part 2)
Mary Sues are Mary Sues because they are unrealistic and because of the way people think of them. If everyone loves her, everybody keeps talking about her beauty/power/intelligence, and everybody instantly forgives her for whatever she might have done wrong, then she is most definitely a Mary Sue. In most cases, the few characters who have the nerve to insult Alexandria May Raven Trinity already are, or become, mean, terrible, horrible people. Keep that in mind as you read this section.
I don't know about you, but when I read a story, there are several moments during which I automatically think, "Oh man, this character is a Mary Sue "
1. One of them is if the character's beauty is described within the first few paragraphs of the first chapter. But even if it isn't so early within a story, certain descriptions automatically cause people to think "Mary Sue."

All you ever caused was pain.

The first thing James noticed was that the city lights were exceptionally bright, more colorful than they’d ever been. No matter how many times his father Joeden brought him down this street, the bright lights never failed to fascinate him. They were called ‘dancing lanterns’ because they swayed in different directions as dictated by the wind. When the lanterns were pushed a certain way, they would change colors. They reminded James of falling stars, since the colors changed just as vividly as the lights flashing across the sky.
After being stunned into five minutes of silence, the lanterns had given him a good story idea. He glanced at Joeden, who was staring at him with an expectant but mischievous grin. It was his turn. His turn to continue the story.
“The bad guy was winning because he had the slayer backed up into a corner,” James started as he looked at the lanterns thoughtfully. The ideas rolled in his hea
