And I’ll play as someone Happy
Let’s dress Up
And let this all… wash down.
Let’s make it Halloween today!
Let’s, you and me, switch roles.
Stop smiling like you know what I’m about to do,
You shouldn’t be happy you know.
It’s your job to stay inside and be sad,
I’ll play you, today.
Don’t let anyone see you!
There can’t be two of us, of you, of me.
While I’m you,
You have to make sure no one sees you.
Don’t peek out of the windows, okay?
If you accidentally show yourself, I won’t forgive you.
A game isn’t fun if you can’t follow the rules.
Life’s a game y’know?
Just stay inside and try to not make a sound,
I can still hear you,
Don’t do that.
I’ll be back,
Just let me enjoy myself
Or at least pretend to.
Hey, what are you doing?
Hey! That’s not fair, get

I can’t feel my toes and at first I think
It’s just my toes.
I can cover them up.
I can warm them.
It spreads, like fire,
I glance away for a second, it seems, and my feet are cold
That’s funny, I didn’t feel that
Maybe I’ll cover them up too
I’ll warm them up.
I’ll take a nap
Maybe a short rest will make it all better, warm them
What’s that? How long has it been?
My legs… are you still mine..
Why has my breath left me, short?
Has everything but deserted me?
What about you, are you still here?
Are you still with me?
And before I can say goodbye, I think my thoughts are leaving me too –

Pick yourself up and clean up the mess you made.
No one wants to step near that.
You left the pills.
Too bad they didn't work.
Now you are just rotting away.
Now we have to deal with you.
You couldn't have just tried a more painful way, could you?
Now you have to live another day.
So go ahead,
fall to the ground and beg like the peasant you are.
No one is coming.
Look at you.
Pick yourself up and clean up the mess you made.
No one wants to step near that.

showing the whites of scared eyes,
Grey fur stained with the red peril of what was to become
his last trip.
Bushy tail now limp and useless, and the rain falls in his eyes.
One strong hind leg laid out behind, Surrounded by mortal remains of what made his small and unobtrusive life, whiskers crushed by the oncoming monster, and a pained expression on his cold little face.
Don't look too long in his unseeing eyes, for they tell a morbid tale.
He lies still,
Poor creature, who never had a chance.

So let me warn you all first, I am NOT a writer so I am NOT looking for a critique on this. I simply wrote this so you all could see what happened before North and Arc ended up about to be attacked by a giant monster thinger ~ Plus I already had my friend FJ fix up any errors that needed to be fixed x3, thank you <333
Today was going to be an interesting day, this was the day that Knights become High Knights and claim their Spirit Guide aka Navigator. Once a High Knights Navigator is summoned, it's supposed to lead them to their 'Monster' or 'Battle Pet' if you will. If the High Knight is successful in capturing his Monster a bond is created and they will battle together in order to protect the kingdom.
North frowned; in his opinion he didn't need a monster, he was a Master Swordsman who was perfectly capable of protecting himself and his kingdom. However his opinion didn't matter in this sort of situation - it was a must to claim your monster, the

No, not who you were expecting,
But look, I'm smiling, for me
I'm no one pretty, I'm sorry
my smile turns others down
and what sad face I have- they say
Until now it never bothered me- not too much!
But hello again,
I haven't seen you in what seems like an eternity
Do you remember?
We used to sit over there- that's right!
That patch of grass and wildflower, the
swing set we'd sit on at night as children,
looking up to the stars- we'd talk about
how one day when we'd fall asleep forever, we'd be among those too.
I would be a star smaller than yours but we'd be stars together, and
you and I would have our special place, in the sky.
But hello again, hello.
I see you're happy, with her. Not me.
And hello again, why don't you look at me

Like you.. used to.
We'd talk about a family and children- when we were children!
But of course we knew nothing of what or how it actually-

Why did I?
Why couldn’t I tell anybody? Why couldn’t I see all of the help I could’ve gotten to get myself back on the right track?
Why did I choose to not want it?
There I was: a knife in my hands and pills at my feet. It was time to end it all. I was ready. It was my final decision. I was going to stop the life I knew for so long. I was ready. I had already opened the bottle of pills and laid them in my hand, the knife in my other. I couldn’t wait any longer.
When I was about twelve years old, I started gaining weight. It was hard for me; I have always been under average. I was always so positive but around this time my confidence plummeted. I was never a person to care much about anything that’s happened to me: I’ve been bullied, alone, sad, and just confus

Every where I look I see blue. Blue skies, blue water, but mostly, I see blue eyes. Blue skies fade to darkness, blue water droughts, but blue eyes never leave, they haunt me.

Black and White (Afterlife Outline, v.2) I cracked my eyes open, allowing a paper thin stream of light to seep into them. My scalp itched from the gravel and dust caked in my disheveled hair. My left leg twitched, urging me to rise. Drawing a deep breath, I heaved myself into a half-sitting position, elbows supporting my weight. My breath caught in my throat as I drank in my surroundings.

Face to face with her just five years short. Not a single year lacking.
She is the same blue eyed, chubby cheeked girl you see in the mirror day to day.
When did that girl change to you? When did she become ugly?
She is sitting. She can't explain to you what she wanted for you to tell her: her body language was loud enough and she was never able to explain her mind truthfully. She never has been; you know better than anyone in the world.
Now she is smiling.
It makes you angry.
You can't stand to think that she is so broken yet she squints her cautious eyes with a misleading cheekiness because she thinks it her best option to hide, and it makes you angry.
You can't find the nerve to smile back, it feels like the biggest lie you could ever tell. She just stares and listens and loosens her grip in her hands to your curious distraction. You stare back, after all what she could use is affirmation, acting strong, guess you never changed in that area, have you?
Animal Abuse PoemThere sits a cat,Animal Abuse Poem1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
His paws on the curb,
Not a cat on a mat,
For he has no home,
And there lies a lion,
Up to his belly in water,
His mane in rags,
Dead eyes thereafter,
And there dances a bear,
With chains on his legs,
A ring in his nose,
And a stick in his ribs,
And there stands a dog,
His ribs broken,
His flesh torn,
A rope around his jaws,
And all lay down,
And closed their eyes,
And there lies the animals,
With no soul behind their eyes.

Then, with a gentle look you took my hand.
As our lives engaged,
you lit my life and I held both your hands.
You're my man, my mighty king,
And I'm the jewel in your crown,
For you I would climb
The highest mountain peak
Swim the deepest ocean
For you I would cross
The rivers most wide
Walk the hottest desert sand
To have you by my side.
For you are the one
Who makes me whole
You've captured my heart
And touched my soul.
For you are the one
That stepped out of my dreams
Gave me new hope
Showed me what love means.
For you alone
Are my reason to live
For the compassion you show
And the care that you give.
You came into my life
And made me complete
Each time I see you
My heart skips a beat.

When I thought everything had magic
Like in the Disney movies I played a hundred times
And I was a princess in my own home
Those times crumbled
After my father faded away
And the other children
Decided they hated me
I didn't understand back then
The terrible words they uttered each day
That painted my world black
And made the magic fade, just like that
'Go kill yourself!'
'You're sick and disgusting!'
'No one loves you!'
'Everything you like is stupid.'
But as I grew older I understood
The words haunted my ears
Every night as I tried to fall asleep
Crying harder each time
And I started to believe them
My walls went up and my anger grew
Like nasty weeds taking over a perfect garden
I hated everything (especially myself)
I'm still not completely healed
I feel like bits are still missing
I only hope I can find them all
Someday very soon
So you see what words can do
To a mind and heart so pure
Tainted by words darker than night
And kids who want nothin

exhausted from screaming to be heard,

frustrated that I get myself caught in these problems,
knowing what horrible outcome it'll have for me,
but taking things into my own hands nonetheless.
i’m so sick,
so sick of being unheard,
of being taken advantage of,
of having to deal with a burden
without a soul taking a part of the load,
asking if I'm alright,
supporting me with every step of the way.
i'm finished with it all,
all the stress and hurt,
being lied to, being deceived...
it's not worth it.
i'm a new person,
and this new person won't let anyone take advantage of her any longer.

Mine scare me,
Mine scare others.
Not because of how they look;
Or what color they are.
But what's inside of them,
The virus that people fear.
But don't understand....
Slowly scarring them from the inside out,
Until nothing can be seen,
At least for me anyways.
Easy and fast.
Just one tear on my hand,
could mean you being blind if you touch me,
Then touch those beautiful little eyes of yours.
That's all it takes.
For me to ruin your life.
For you to suffer as I am,
Only to slowly watch the world fade before them,
Knowing there's nothing they can do,
But watch their eye eat itself from the inside out
Like sand running through my fingers,
Although that analogy is used way too often,
A bug in a spider's web
When it sees the spider coming near it,
And it knows it can't save itself
And all it can do is watch.
Perhaps it was a plan.
A plan to ruin an artist.
And all she wants is to see two things;
And her first born child.

creating new scars for each harsh word
but either way her soul
will find its way home
far above this wretched planet

depression is such a monster
it clings to her like a leech
she's scared she'll never be rid of it
but she keeps up the fake smiles and laughter
because the facade is so much easier
she's watched so many she loves

like the petals you pull off daisies
asking if he/she loves you or not
(how often has that answer been not?)
verbal scars still cling to her ears
and remain fresh in her mind
'go kill yourself!' 'you're worthless!'
taunting her day after day
no matter how hard she tries to bury them
she knows a lot of people have it much worse
some of them she talks to everyday
she hasn't been raped, beaten, starving
or suffered through any kind of disaster
but her pain is still there
but it's okay
her life is just dandy

Memoirs of a Blue DinosaurMemoirs of a Blue DinosaurMemoirs of a Blue Dinosaur1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stashed in away in a basement somewhere,
In some long forgotten box of old toys,
Buried under a great many other plastic creatures,
There is a little blue dinosaur.
He has a lengthy neck, and a long skinny tail.
His skin is textured plastic and blue as can be,
The paint on his eyes and the tip of his nose has chipped off,
And his bottom jaw is missing.
In the dark he remembers,
Sticky fingers holding him for days on end.
Little hands moving him through tall grass,
Making fake roaring sounds and crashing into other toys.
He remembers being cuddled at night,
(Though he was the farthest thing from soft).
He remembers tears crawling over his scales,
And hiding under blankets from fighting grown-ups.
He remembers flying over an ocean,
And coming to a new home with just one grown-up.
He remembers being put into a box,
“Just for a little while sweetie, until we settle in.”
And then he remembers the dark.
