"I went for a little swim," he replied.
The servant looked at Hades for a moment before saying anything.
"Would you like me to start a bath for you?" he asked.
"That would be nice."
The servant ran off towards Hades' bedchamber. Hades took off his cloak and armor. Underneath he was wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and black pants. At the waist was a dark red sash that wrapped around his body. He undid the sash and began unbuttoning his shirt.
"You plan on stripping here?" a voiced asked.
Hades turned to see Cerberus standing not far away. The large three-headed dog looked at him with three pairs of red eyes.
"What are you doing here Cerberus?"
"I thought I would come see how you were doing."
"I'm doing fine," Hades replied.
"Really? Anything interesting happen recently?"
"No, just the usual."

AfraidI used to be afraid, of everything.Afraid3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of the darkness at night,
Of the spiders crawling in the dark.
I used to be scared of lightning,
And the thunder that follwed.
I used to be afraid of my dreams,
Of the monsters under my bed,
The strange nightmares in my head.
I used to be afraid of it being real,
And the things it might mean.
I used to be afraid of the future,
Of growing old,
Of growing up.
I used to be scared that it would end,
And that I'd be all alone.
I used to be afraid of so many things,
Scared of the sillyest things,
Soo scared I never realised what I should fear most.
Now I am not scared of everything,
The darkness at night calms me,
A thunder storm thrills me,
My dreams are vivid and bright
The future is a mystery I long to see,
Age is only a number.
Now, my biggest fear, is Me.

The music composer played a tune on his violin
He made a few notes and continued to play
It was a beautiful tune about his wife who had died
She had caught cholera and died a few weeks later
He was devastated and he had no children to ease the burden
He had to survive alone
He felt great misery and pain
But the memories of their time together kept him going
They had met at music college in Salzburg
He played the violin and she was a singer
She had a great voice and sang like an angel
He had written a few pieces for her to sing in concert
Those who attended said it was so beautiful
The music reminded them of heaven and the angels
It was great overwhelming music which lifted the spirit
And inspired your imagination
They had been comfortably off
And had a nice home where they entertained their guests
They knew several artists and music players
They were a popular couple
And their friends were devastated by her death
Many people turned up for the funeral

You were bored.
It was miserable and stormy out, the rain and cold making the thought of stepping outside undesirable. Not being out and about was unusual for you, as you were quite the go getter.
You were the top student of your class, and the student council president. You were beautiful, with your flawless (s/c) skin, your sparkling (e/c) eyes, and your (h/l) (h/c) hair. Many other girls envied you, even though you put no effort into your appearance. But you didn't care about your fellow seniors, as they were shallow and meaningless to you, with the exception of your few friends. The only things you wanted were straight A's, your laptop, and anime boys.
Oh, those anime boys.
Anyways, you were laying on your back in the middle of your bed. You had already completed your quarterly projects, weekend homework, and studied for your history test on Wednesday. It was about 7:00 in the afternoon on Sunday, leaving you

And there's no one to tell you it's alright,
You can't help feeling you're about to drown,
Or being enveloped by endless night.
I'll be there to help you out,
Or just to make you smile,
I'll show you what friendship is all about,
And help you run the extra mile.
I know how much pain has come to you,
And I know that it's hard to move on,
But I know that you'll make it through,
And then that pain will soon be gone.
For a friend I'll always be there,
And I'll always do my very best,
I'll be the one who'll always care,
Even if they're extremely depressed.
Your friendship means the world to me,
Even when you're sad,
Because you are undoubtfully,
One of the best friends that I've had.
So when you're feeling lost,
Or when things become unclear,
My friendship has no cost,
And for you I'll always be here.

At the end of another two weeks of confinement, the little Larvesta had yet to master Psychic, but Bug Buzz was already perfected. It made sense considering Bug Buzz was a move that Larvesta learn naturally. Hiding the little girl from Dread was proving no easy task. She ate a lot, and if she was not properly sated, she would take to singeing the edges of her trainer's sheets and nibbling on them. This Touko tried to discourage, as it would be very difficult to explain if Dread were to notice.
She had not seen N since the one time two weeks ago, and she was getting worried. Dread told her that he would think about letting her see him again, but it didn't look like he was going to. He was stopping by less to talk to her now, and she didn't know whether to be relieved or disappointed. He was her only source of human contact and not entirely terrible to converse with, though he brought up a few unconventional subjects that were actually quite silly.

The warmth of N’s own tears began to glide against my skin as we remained standing there under the heavy wind, our lips still pressed together, though we were slightly trembling from the bitter cold. N’s arms hesitantly slid from my back to my hips before circling around onto the surface of my stomach. With a sudden shove, I immediately stumbled, falling straight on my rear. A loud snort came from behind me, just before Gray charged forward, standing defensively between me and N. Gray clawed at the ground with his right hoof, warning N to back off. Though I doubt N noticed, he was in a heavy fit of tears, gasping for breath. Swablu fluttered over to my side, nipping at bits of my hair, making sure I was okay.
I nodded softly to her, giving her a quick smile before directing her on my shoulder. I couldn’t speak, I had not been expecting N to push me. It caught me completely off guard. I took a moment to stare up at N before rising to my feet, patting Gray gently on his

Fallen to the frail, desecrated figure of none other than Death
What of life
To be it nothing more than a shell of lost expectations, and diminished potential
Why are the rest finding a chance?
To be given choice other than pain and remorse
To live every day without looking in the mirror
Knowing who they are
As we stare in the mirror
Asking every day, what we have become
What has happened to this world
To see our form as frail as Death
The mirror shattering through venting
And pain found no more within us
Our knuckles bled that day
Only smiling at the pain
It has always been there to comfort us
Never felt by those with a future
Or a choice of what they are and were
To not run from marked pasts, or lingering choices
Lingering in the back of our minds as we attempt to sleep that night
Let it be said Death may be cruel, but not as cruel as the life once lived, or the life to be lived by others

My eyes leered at him once he got his two fingers on my chin and lifted up my head. Glowing red eyes. I felt his cold breath brushing my face as he approatched his face closer.
I wasn't really a person anymore, nor a vampire in any case.
I was human. A good for nothing prisoner to him though, I was his next lunch. Soon, I will probably be transformed into a blood-sucking vampire unless he does so and kills me while drinking my blood.
My eyes followed his movements. He took his two fingers away, leaving space once again for warmth. I watched him as he ran his palm over my neck, my chest and to my stomach where he took it away and stepped backwards. He smirked and bowed down with a hand on his chest before standing up straight again. He turned around and opened the door; I blinks and I stared wide eyed as I saw that he wasn't there anymore, the door was closed like no one touched it or even op

Lacks the need for games
For riddles, or fame

Who needs her poor mittens
The sooth touch
On her soft back
And learn to relax

Was known to be a cat of grin
To move, back and forth
From the floor, to the lap

Mere words can not explain the wonder that is you
How you make me feel just by being there
I love your eyes, the green of a forest dappled by the light of your smile
Your smile which makes the most amazing sunrise pale in comparison to nothingness
Your laugh which is like the tinkling of silver bells by the choirs of Heaven
Your voice which is the purest music to listen to, golden on my ears
Your elegant, feminine hands with their slender perfect fingers which I long to hold
The entirety of you, the perfection I behold
My breath catches in my throat just looking at you, how utterly beautiful you are
My heart feels like a bird caught up in a cage too small for it, fluttering wildly and skipping beats just beholding you
I feel faint and light headed just being around you
You captivate my every sense
You thrill my very being
You enchant all of me with the wonder that is you
Your love for me knows no bounds
Your words speak right into my heart, burning themselves into the fabric of my soul

But not today.
My eyes are filled with tears of useless wishes,
And your lips are filled with whispers of goodbye and butterfly kisses.

I love you.
Your eye lids close slowly,
Those things I used to be mad at you about,
Seem so small and stupid now.
I clasp on to your hands,
Willing for you to live
And see more stunning days like this.
You squeeze my hand ever so slightly,
As the life drains from your face,
Flowing out from your body.
As the sun sets over your life,
The birds sing out their goodbyes.
And all I can do is stop and stare hopelessly at this display,
You left me today.

They must have burred me
Because dark was all I could see

Drunken memories stumble up and down the halls.
All love has left me.
All hope is has been wasted on me.
There is no light at the end of this tunnel,
Only a blaze waiting to swallow me whole.
I remember the days when my heart
Was not held together by sticky tape
And the wings on my back,
Carried me over stormy seas .
But my wings have long deserted me,
My legs no longer work for me.
God has turned his back on me,
Throwing me into the shadow,
That blocks the sunlight from my skin.
My hands shake as I admit that,
When you died,
I died to.

you stood there watching

what other reason could you have not saved me?
from my eternal death that night
I was screaming and crying
praying you'd save my life
but you see you were the cause
because love was my knife
I died because I loved you
it broke me up inside
I never should've fallen

AFTER LEAVING THE CHAMBERS, HADES HURRIEDLY WENT TO HIS.
As soon as he was inside, he slammed the door shut behind him. It echoed with a loud thud. A passing thought went through his head about Persephone hearing it, but he ignored it, cursing himself as he thought of her.
Why could he not get her out of his head? Why was it that every single time he closed his eyes, he would see hers?
It drove him mad, this unknown feeling. What was it? He remembered a time ago, when he had thought what he was feeling was love. That too, was an unknown feeling to him. He had seen it, certainly. He had seen the loved ones of the dead grieving for the souls of the Underworld he now ruled over. But that was somehow different than what he felt now, and he knew that the feeling he was experiencing was not such a pathetic thing as love.
He cursed to himself, and walked to the table, seeing the bowl of blackened water. Hades forced himself to look inside of it, looking in on the mortal world.

Building the courage, to stab through my chest.

Then I stabbed myself, so violently.

Will anyone even, cry just one tear?

VictimsWe find the victimsVictims2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They are easy to spot
Among the crowd amiss
It is so backwards
Why have the weak
To suffer past the boundaries of a simple shrug
Transitioning to a cut
To dark thoughts
Lead to dark actions
To be resurrected
Before having it begin again
Why not target the stronger
Let them transition from the peak
To the middle
To the gravel
Leading to equivalent torment
To be shook in their core
Before rising once again
All because of a voice
Of a victim
To become a predator
Having become the enemy
Turning on his kin
Turning on the victims
The people who held him when he was at his darkest day
Who helped him cry
Not because of pain
But of joy
Because he knew others cared
We are all victims
Do not snuff it out like a fresh flame
And have our skin crackle in the fire
We will be wanted
All the victims are
Broken and scarred as we are
