I said I wouldn't let go of you
You'd always be mine
But you see, I don't want to argue
Oh darling, I really don't want to fight.
Does it really matter
Who's wrong and who's right?
We start yelling so late at night
We don't stop until the sun leaks through the blinds
Finally, we realize that it's daylight
Maybe you can win me back
Do you have any jokes to make me laugh?
Any words to make me smile?
Well now, don't you feel so bad.
Isn't it a shame
How you made me tame
Now it doesn't matter, I'm wild again
There's no way to cure me
I'm just too insane
Now look here
Who's the one that's hurting, dear?
Even though I want to be sincere,
I going to have to kick you out
I'm sorry but you've got to get out of here
I guess you'll keep on going on and on
Calling me a pacifist and headstrong
You leave willingly,
And I know that one day we'll sit down and talk
Tracing the clues of what made everything fall apart.

I wanted to take your hand in mine and like a couple of idiots, run through the heavy traffic and pouring rain, and keep at it till our feet resign.
We'd find a tree with branches wide enough with leaves broad or plentiful enough to take shelter under, and there, you'd place your head on my lap as I'd sing you my favorite love song. The song I'd always wanted you to sing to me.
If only I hadn't found out the hard way that your feelings for me are but as thin as an onion's skin and that I could never accept and bow down to no matter how suave your courting style may be. If only I was stupider than what I really am- maybe then I would have reciprocated to your efforts all my yearning I've kept sealed tightly, maybe then we might have had a chance.
When I told you to make things clear and to stop teetering between the fringes of my hopes and dreams and the cruel loneliness that awaits, my blood was already thinning and I was gagging from my silent yet continually flow

Not So Alone: Part 1
Well, it doesn’t look too intimidating when you put it that way.
Three hundred and twenty-seven years.
Now that seems to capture it a bit better.
Seventeen years spent in the company of a loving family, a warm village, and never really growing up. Seventeen years cut short tragically one fateful day while ice skating on a nearby pond. A life for a life. Seventeen whole years, forgotten, all to be remembered one day now ten years in the past. Seventeen defining years that continue to permeate every. Single. Day.
And then three hundred years. Oh, how long that was. Three hundred years without a single soul to speak to. Well, a single person that would listen—could listen—not even the Moon. These were the loneliest three hundred years unknown to humankind. And yet, somehow, they had been pushed through, taken at day by day. But you just can’t go alone, unseen, for that amount of time and not be able to walk away

Secret"Colin, your mother and I have noticed that you've been sneaking out of the house at night recently."Secret3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He knew that this would come sometime. He always had to leave the window slitted slightly so as to facilitate reentry, and the consequent alteration in the temperature of his bedroom could be felt. He had been dozing off in several classes over the past few weeks after sleepless nights, his parents nearly giving up trying to rouse him earlier than the fifteen minutes he'd need to freshen up. Yawning, he'd wrap himself in his bathrobe, occluding the sight of any residual mud but if they had taken any glance under his covers (he tried to avoid this by making his bed properly every day and thus allay suspicions), they would have seen streaks of humus brown where his feet would kick back and forth. He didn't know what he would say to them. Did they know what he was doing? Had they surreptitiously spied on him one night?
"We're somewhat concerned," said his mother, and their eyes met

How, I ask,
Is such a thing done?
And all before lunch.
18 were children,
Children so small.
Please tell me how does humanity
So deeply fall?
No one was left
Unharmed that day.
They heard their friends dying
Over the PA.
Children so innocent

How he could steal that away
He was monster, not man.
Yet I weep for him too.
I guess that's just me.
I'd never wish Hell
On my worst enemy.
But seriously, CHILDREN?!
How dare that cruel beast!
Lord, God Almighty,
Bring those poor families peace.
I think of the presents
That'll never be unwrapped.
11 days before Christmas,
27 families have gaps.
I think of the parents
Who kissed their children goodbye
Then sent them to school
Not knowing it was the last time.
I think of each tragedy
That's happened before.
People tire of hearing it
And soon start to ignore.
But to the people affected,
The damage is fresh.
They're all that's spok

Tear the veins that run within?
How do you carefully steal a knife?
The tool that's used to end your life?
How do you hide from prying eyes?
How do you muffle your painful cries?
Where do you cut so that no one will see?
So no one at school will question me?
How long does it take to disappear?
A day, a month or even a year?
How does one pretend not to care?
Pretend to read but simply stare?
How does one refrain from eating?
But not act like you're competing?
How does one fill the great black hole?
Without the hunger taking its toll?
How do you make yourself violently sick?
How do you get your body to tick?
I've tried before but there's one small snag,
All I can manage is a pitiful gag.
But perhaps the question I should ask,
Rather than how to complete this task,
Maybe I should just sit down and cry,
And ask myself not how but why?

Jack blinked a couple of times, his brow furrowed. He kept his staff aimed right at the man’s chest.
“‘The Doctor?’” he repeated warily.
“That’s me. Hello!” the man said, waving his hand in greeting. His toothy smile hadn’t faded in the least.
The man turned his gaze skyward, raising his eyebrows and turning the corners of his thin lips down into a half-pout, saying to nobody but himself, “Oh, not too often I get that one. It’s usually ‘Doctor who?’” He redirected his attention to Jack. “No, no. That’s it. Just ‘The Doctor.’”
Jack raised an eyebrow. Was this guy serious?
Him, with his headful of brown hair fluffed up in the middle and mildly spiked, falling slightly into his forehead, reminding Jack of some sort of cockatoo. And those sideburns! Him, with the thick eyebrows, thin upper lip, slightly pudgie
Seven MinutesI had never been to a party that wasn't being thrown by one of my friends. But Lilly and I were kinda friends. We had a class together, but that was the only time we talked. When she invited me to her birthday party, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go. She was one of the more popular kids, but she was so nice. My two close friends, Kristal and Hayley, were also kind of friends with her, so they also got invited. We all decided that there was probably going to be a lot of popular, mean kids there, so if we all went, we had to stay by each other the whole night.Seven Minutes5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

But the thought of that deep and forceful kiss you received from him nagged in your brain, you wanted more.
However, it would have to wait, you had to get ready for work. Once ready you headed out onto the streets the ever familiar path carrying you to the shoe shop you worked at. You were lost in your head thinking about the man to notice anything, let alone the pair of hands reaching to grab you from the small alley way a
I Remember That Night..I Remember That Night..4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I sit with my headphones listening to the songs that
Remind me of that night we had not long ago.
Of the twilight surroounding us,
The water lapping against the wooden warf, a melodic sound.
I close my eyes and see you standing there, beside me.
Hand in mine, your eyes only for me.
The light glowing across the river, boats floating lazily by,
And the sounds of children playing in the distance.
I stand, you hold me close and our lips meet,
You lips soft and moist on mine.
I remember that night.
I remember as the songs that remind me of you play softly.
I dream of us, of what we were, of what we used to be...
I remember the way you loved me. I remember you loved me that night,
Your lips always on mine and our hands always entwined.
I open my eyes, tears running down my face, I'm back in my room.
And I remember you're no longer mine.
I remember that I've lost you..

He finally had a chance to be by himself- the humans didn’t come near this part of the country. So he was safe from any interrupting yells of fright or disgust. He took a deep breath of the fresh air, then shut his eyes sleepily. A short nap was all he wished for…
Five year old Kelly had seen this giant more than once. He was enormous- he seemed bigger than the first time she had seen him! She could see his gargantuan body lying in the emerald green meadow. He appeared to be sleeping…
It was Kelly’s chance! She looked down at her school backpack and took out her pair of binoculars. She peered through them, zooming in onto the giant’s face. His eyelids were shut, and his great mouth was open slightly.
He was definitely asleep.
Kelly was beyond excited . She could approach him easily now… She clapped her hands

But then, as quickly as it had come, it was gone.
Jack leaned forward as much as he dared, his lips pursed as he scanned the night sky for any sign of the odd object. In search of a less-obstructed view, he leapt down softly from his perch on the tree branch and onto the pond below, the still water freezing instantly beneath his feet, a thin layer of swirling ice sprouting from wherever he stepped.
His search proving fruitless, he shrugged and turned around, a quick bout of Winter wind lifting him from his place on the water and setting him down on the nearby land.
It was his eyes playing tricks, after all.
A subtle change in the air brought a smile to his face. He knew what that change was. He could just feel the clouds forming in the atmosphere, see all of the new patterns for snowflakes in his mind’s eye. It was already Spring, the pond no longer capable of remaining frozen and what little snow was left dotting the earth’s face like strange li

Captain Teague sighed, leaning back in his chair as his only son crept up to the side of it.
What is it Jackie? he asked, closing his eyes as Jack clambered up into his father's lap, his small frame light on Teague's knees. Shouldn't you be going to bed?
Carl got me into an argument, began the nine-year-old boy. Teague didn't bother correcting him, he had never found correct speech helpful at all in real life. He was tellin' me a story, and told me his mom told him.
What's there to argue about? Teague decided to humor him for once and listened. Jack swung his legs on either side of his. Unlike most boys who were somewhat abashed when speaking to their fathers, Jack looked at Teague straight in the eyes. Well, as straight in the eyes as he could for having his head just reaching Teague's chin.
He said them were bedtime stories, Jack whistled, as if it were a big deal. Teague felt like going back to

Shinx ReportShinx (the Flash Pokémon) is a relatively common Electric-type Pokémon found among grassy plains and savannahs within the Sinnoh region and parts of Africa as well as the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Unova regions on rare occasions. Though relatively inept at using their electricity to attack from afar, Shinx are decent physical combatants that can use their well-built bodies and muscle-based electrical systems to do surprising damage in close quarters. They might not gain access to any decent Electric-type attacks until fairly close to evolution, but as long as you can make do with their basic attacks until then, you should do fine; just don't scare the poor creatures out of the blue, or you might end up losing the ability to see for at least a few minutes!Shinx Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
