to tear down
seems so hard
to break me,
it's too easy,
I'm already broken,
so a little more...
what would that do?
nothing? that's what
it would push
me over, shatter me
it's too easy
to break me apart,
it seems as if
it would be so hard
but it's been done
it's so easy to break
yet so hard to fix.
the shattered pieces,
a piece at a time...
it's so easy to
break a person
to tears, to the limit,
so why should I
be any different?
yes, it seems hard,
but it's easy
grab your taunts
throw them my way,
shatter my dreams,
and I'll bleed,
it seems so hard
but really to break
a person down,
is all too easy...
Tomorrow Is Another DayHow can I dreamTomorrow Is Another Day3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I'm hurt?
How can I smile
When I'm dirt?
How can I hope
When I'm forgotten?
How can I be
When I'm nothing?
I don't know how
But there are some things
That you just have to do
If not for yourself
Then for someone close
I don't know if these words
Will impact you, or set an impression
But take this advice
From an old cutter
It gets better, even if your life has melted like butter
You're not forgotten
You're always in someone's mind
You're not dirt
Cause to someone you shine
There is still hope for you
Even if your dream is broken
I noticed that
When the girl I loved, came even closer
Don't hurt yourself today
Cause you never know

Arcade/Vulpes - Fallout: New Vegas
Arcade opened the suspiciously damp and bloodstained package. "It's a Deathclaw heart."
Vulpes grinned. "Yes. I killed it myself."
"I don't doubt that. But…." The doctor gingerly placed the package on the table and wiped his palms on his lab coat.
"This is more what the holiday calls for." Arcade reached into a pocket and handed Vulpes a red paper heart with A + V written in gold glitter on it.
Vulpes held the valentine like it was a frag mine, and regarded it with unease. "I can't eat this."
"You're not supposed to eat it."
"I thought this was a tribal observance."
"No, it's Pre-War."
"Oh. Well, eating the heart of your enemies is said to bestow your enemies' merits upon you."
"I'm not eating that." Arcade pointed at the dripping package.
"I could have saved myself the trouble and felled a Bighorner then, only you already have the heart of a sheep."
"Very funny. Just leave the snark to me. You

Spinning 'round and 'round
All around, the ticking of clocks
Such a discordant sound
Right is left and left is right
Night is day and day is night
Up is down and down is up
Life is death and death is life
Voices whisper from every niche
Screams echo and cause a twitch
Claws and teeth threaten to kill
Eyes wild with bliss of such a thrill
Run, hide, fight, or plead
Nothing shall work, nothing you need
The sun and moon will laugh as you cry
As the Queen shrieks her commands to the sky
Blood forms penumbras as heads roll
A cry of defiance with each bell toll
The jury turns in accord, madness shining bright
Their question full of words to make your skin crawl with fright

Just me. Not you or we.

Not true like me.

who gave up the dream
I salute you
Don't worry, I understand
You see; I did it as well
So here's to the accountant,
who wanted to play basketball

Here's to the farmer,
who should have been on Broadway
Here's to you
Because I know
That when you gave it up
When you surrendered
You had your fingers

The young Earl Phantomhive has been known to have a fear of heights. Or, better phrased, people have said so.
Ciel himself does not believe this.
True, he does not like to step upon high buildings or ladders or even a chair to get that one book on the top shelf, because he is just a bit (a lot) too small. But even so, he says not to be afraid of heights:
He holds a dislike for the not-rational and considers that kind of fear to be irrational.
A fear of falling, however...

Inside, you’re worried as fuck.
You pay the innkeeper and leave, John leaning heavily on your arm. You have to help him up on his horse and you spend five minutes asking him trivia questions to be sure that he’s all there and strong enough to actually ride.
For about three hours, it’s silence. John rides on, head dipping occasionally, and you watch him more than ninety percent of the time to make sure he’s okay. During the other ten percent you’re looking around to check for bandits and other travelers on the country road. You can trust no one.
When the sun is overhead, you hear a noise behind you and turn back to see John slumping heavily on his horse. Not just slumping, but sprawled on the neck of the animal, about to fall right off. You quickly jerk the reins in your hand, turning around your own horse and bringing John’s to a halt before parking the two creatures next to each other and gripping John&

There wasn’t enough space in your room for your piano, so you’ve settled your keyboard into it. Dave switched to a twin sized bed so that his turntables actually fit in his room. You don’t care what he does with his room anyway, he just makes a mess of it, and that’s not your responsibility.
“As long as it doesn’t stink up the place,” was your compromise.
Dave moved up to Washington the day he turned eighteen. He had been tossed around in foster care all his life, having been split up from his twin brother when twelve, and was not happy with the fake families (as he called them). He was packed and ready to go at midnight when he became a legal adult.
He stayed with you and your father for two weeks, looking for jobs and places to live. He was too humble to ask for money, but your

You and Dave don’t reach another town for a while, which means you both have to sleep outside for several days. You don’t want him to rag on you for not being used to this, but you can’t help it. You feel like bugs are on you and you feel like some large animal is going to come and maul you.
Dave looks so calm though. There’s a fire crackling between you two, one that he started in less than five minutes with ease, and he’s sitting on a turned log. His legs are spread and he’s leaning forward with his elbows on his knees. The light of the fire flickers on his pale face, showing the freckles that spread lightly under his eyes and across his nose. His red eyes look so much more vibrant with the rays of the flames dancing on them.
Neither of you have spoken since the inn. You don’t know what to say. Should you apologize? Would explaining yourself just make it worse? You don’t like it when he’s

But you used to like listening to him, and you used to like talking back and conversing. John used to make you feel like a real friend, and not just his knight. One time, when you were both around fifteen, John got in trouble for pulling a prank on his father while the king was in a very important meeting. While he was getting a scold talking to, one of the generals in the meeting called him some horrible name under his breath that only you heard and you had snapped at him to shut his fucking mouth.
You got in trouble with the head knights for speaking out of turn and had to get five lashes. You didn’t talk to John for two days after that. You didn’t meet his eyes when you followed him into areas where the two of you weren’t alone. Your lash wounds had been hurting and you didn’t want more.
After those two silent days, John snuck into your sleeping area of the castle during the night. When you closed the do

Jake doesn’t shove another weapon in your face, but he does give you a lot of glares and makes sure to avoid you as much as he can. Jane’s the only one who seems happy with your presence. She smiles at you and talks with you. She and John cook together sometimes and you stand in the back quietly, trying to make yourself invisible, but they always end up remembering that you’re there and forcing you to either help or making you the official taste tester of the kitchen.
One morning John sleeps in and you leave Ari with him to go down to the kitchen and get some food. Jane is already there, stirring something in a pot and smiling happily at you when you

She did what she had always dreamed of doing, finding Neverland.The WildFlowers: I Think I Need You3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
But of course this came with a price, leaving her home, and losing her family. She could never go back home. But now where could she go? As she took one last walk down the main street of King Charles Harbour, the thought struck her like a bolt of lightning. She had orders to leave Neverland, but where would she go? For such a beautiful summer evening, she sure felt cold and lonely. Would it be better to go back to Ireland, or would it be worth trying to stay here. Everyone warmed up to Harper and her crew over the years. Everyone except James.
She kept her eyes out over the horizon, at the end of the street she saw the pier and of course, the open ocean. The wind breathed a sigh through

You were pacing in the throne room, Dave having recently returned from using the washroom. You looked at him, stared at him, but then starting pacing again while crossing your arms. “My father.”

He looked behind and saw that everyone, the living and the dead, all sitting together and waiting as patiently as him for the bride to arrive.

You don’t remember who took care of you when you were an infant, but you were on the streets by five. For a tiny human, you kicked ass, and you were street smart. You knew how to get into people’s minds, how to manipulate, how to put your fists up and pick the right fights. It’s how you stayed alive. You suppose those virtues were noticed when an older man with sunset eyes saw you sitting by a fence post, chewing at the remains of an apple you had stolen.
He knelt before you, and your eyes immediately widened. You were five, of course you were a little scared. Tons of the people in the village have beaten you, not only for stealing, but because they thought you were some demonic offspring because of your eyes.
