Inner DemonJolting upwards, terror struckInner Demon7 years ago in Open More Like This
Not real, but not fake
It wasn't me, it wasn't me
Scrambling away from the nightmare
Out of bed
Away from sleep
Not true, but not a lie
It wasn't me, it wasn't me
Half-dragging across the floor
Tired and afraid
Awake and in horror
All there, but shouldn't be
It wasn't me, it wasn't me
To the mirror for proof
Staring at self
Squinting and reflection
Needing comfort and reconcilement
It wasn't me, it wasn't me
Recoiling, horrorified at sight
A demon staring back
Eyes watching you
Taking pleasure as you squirm
It wasn't me, it wasn't me
The demon chuckles as you stare back
Looks like you
Sounds like you
CAN'T be you
One last, desperate scream:
"YOU'RE NOT ME!!"
The demon cocks an eyebrow
Red eyes glowing in sick pleasure
It wasn't me, it wasn't me
"Oh, but it was."

You walked over to the (favorite type of genre) section and searched for your favorite book. It didn't take you too long to find it though. When you went to go take the book off of the shelf, it wouldn't budge. 'How odd...', you though and tried again. Alright, this book did not want to move. This began to frustrate you. You put your foot against the shelf and pulled with all of your might.
"Why in the bloody hell won't this book move?!", a voice yelled from the other side. You let go of the book and it flew to the other aisle in the hands of a Brit. He hit his head on the shelf behind him and fell to the floor. He had shag

For you it is a solemn song that we are made to sing.
Your parents fought to save you, but here it is you lie
My sweetest little dragon child, why did you have to die?
There are no words to capture grief, nor the mourning in our hearts
I never thought that we were meant to be easily torn apart...
No pain in life could have ever prepared us, for the pain we faced today
My child I wish you could hear the words that we truly long to say
We wish we could have taught you, about the flowers in the spring
We wish we could have showed you, the homes of our kin...
We wish we could have loved you, and watched you fly away
But in this cold and clammy cave is where you have to stay
We'll lay you down to rest for now, so just dream of better times
Your mother and I will be the ones to atone for our crimes
Sleep for now and rest yourself for you needn't ever rise
We will stay and watch you drift away, before our very eyes...

I have my inner demons.
And they are tearing me apart.
Through my rib cage,
They are eating away my heart.
I have you,holding me tight.
You can feel the pulse of my soul
I am afraid,save me.
Make those evil creatures go.
I have monsters under my bed.
They whisper only bullshit in my ear.
Their voices are so quiet for others,
But so loud for me to hear.
I feel like losing my balance,
I will fall soon,
I wonder,did Lucifer
Have his inner demons,too.
I trust them,
And they say you'll leave.
It's like they want to kill.
But you caught my body,
You're the one with my soul's key.
With the color of my artery's blood
on your body,you said to me:
"Don't talk to monsters under your bed,
Cause they don't like us at all.
Sleep,I am here,my love.
They don't know what we know."

Week after week, you worked hard on your papers and studies. There was a lot more work being an Undeclared ((you don't have a major yet)) than you had originally thought. On the up side, midterms were over; meaning that you were half way through your second semester of college. Your grades were decent (according to you), but they could be better.
“Aaaaaaaagh...” you groaned. You slapped the notebook with your notes on to your desk and leaned back in your chair. “This is pointless. When am I ever going to use this in real life?”
“It's just a general requirement,” said Lili from her desk. Elizabeth was laying on your bed, flipping through her math book.
“Yeah.... It's a stupid requirement if you ask me,” commented Elizabeth nonchalantly. “They give us these courses in order to weed us out. That's how this institution makes money.” She had a point. The cost for tuition nowadays were ridicules.

The room wavered as the lights danced on the walls. The music beat against The blonde's ears as he made his way deeper into the sea of people. The people felt like they were closing in, swallowing him in their rhythmic dancing and pulsing auras.
It was a different experience for Arthur, being in the thick of the crowd. When Alfred or Francis even managed to get him into a place like this he usually stuck to the outskirts of the dance floor, he preferred his space out there. Often times he kept to the shadows, standing along the walls. There it was secluded, and quiet (despite the raring music) and he could actually think there. Besides, most of the tables stood alone, away from the crowd, making for an easy escape when he got bored. Tonight, however, was different. He had caught a glimpse of something. He had seen something that he hadn't expected to ever see there, something that had become the

It was peaceful. Not for the first time, of course. She had often stood up here in the silence of the predawn or was it past dusk? Or midday? In the realm where time's arrow existed in all places all at once, her mind simply could not comprehend it all. Trying to mark the passage of time was like trying to catch a shadow in a bottle. But it was peaceful, dark, as it always was, and upon the shore of the crystal-laden beach the breakers pounded as they always did. No one wandered in the streets. From time to time she spotted shadows darting, but nothing else. Even the destroyed promenade overlooking the sea had been rebuilt. But by the hands of what?
There were no stars but there were. Sometimes they winked at her, and she stared at them. At the same time, there were none.
So, it was past dusk. But it was also midday.
Ducking her head, she shook it, a wellspring of hopeless bitterness welling up inside. A person could go insane tryin

Her pale and thin hand laid loosely in England's. Her breathing ragged and rasped, she slept in the hospital bed. England had pulled all possible strings and used all kinds of connections, now she had a room for herself and got more attention and better care, warmer sheets and softer pillows. But no one could do a thing against what ate her life up, ate her remaining time. He kept the sobs at bay, not wanting to wake her, though he longed to see her (e/c) eyes. But she needed the rest, so he simply put a flat and dull (h/c) strand of hair away from her sunken cheek, his hand shaking badly.
He still remembered her differently. He remembered times when her radiant (e/c) eyes would sparkle and glimmer with joy and her glossy (h/c) locks would move with her gracefully.
He choked back a sob and put his free hand above his mouth, his other one still grasping hers. It was kinda his fault, that she lay there – helpless, dying.
Before he could remember the exact happenings, the door slowl
Mono.One morning a black pillar appeared in the center of town, within the boundaries of the park and right outside of the library. It stood at least thirteen feet tall and was as wide as a mature oak. They deduced it was made out of some kind of polished stone. Some guessed it was obsidian; others argued it was too strong to be such a fragile stone. It could have been granite, but when was the last time you saw black granite in that quantity, and in that shape?Mono.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

But they were too afraid to touch it.
"Why not just leave it here?" another suggested.
But they wondered what would happen if they didn't do anything at all.
Whoever put it there didn't do it alone. They'd need a truck to transport the thing, and they'd need some way to get it off the flatbed and stand it up straight. But why go to all of that trouble for a pillar of rock? Or was it part of someth

I try to swallow the bitter death,

But despite all of the sorrowful crying,
my demons haven't even begun dying.
I punch and hit, trying to break,

Screaming and raging, all alone,
I sink to the floor and begin to moan.
Now I would still just be lying

where the two of us would come undone.
Our intertwined fingers slowly letting go,
tonight I cry the notes of woe...
Within my head I dare to seek
the memories, now bound with grief.
All alone, I let it fade...
Like black ink on a worn out page.
My heart tightens as I yearn for you,
and to watch your lips form the words "I love you."
Your reason for leaving me, made no sense,
I was only angry due to your pretense.
Your silent confessions, weren't spoken loud enough,
I was too naive to think our love was enough.
But that one little moment, tore our worlds apart,
And that tear left a scar on my broken heart...

I can't believe that you even talk to me
Cause all you're qualities makes you so radiant
It would feel like I was speaking to an angel
This sounds really corny or cliché,
But is the truth what I speak
You're my inspiration for writing these poems
You're in my mind every time I grab my pencil
And every love poem I make is dedicated to you
There's only one word that explains what I feel
Is a feeling that seems insane but its real
A feeling that I have deep inside of my heart
And that feeling is called "love"
Dark Senshi PrologueIt has been years since the battle with Galaxia. In the 30th Century, the people lived for hundreds of years, even thousands, because of Neo Queen Serenity and the power of the Ginzuishou. The Senshi were all leading normal lives but they knew that true peace would only be attained when Serenity ascended the throne. Serenity still could not believe that one day she would be queen of Earth. However, those days were still a long way off, as ChibiUsa had not been born yet.Dark Senshi Prologue9 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
