You used my patience; you smoked it like a drug, you took advantage of my presence, you evaporated us into nothing.
You decapitated our relationship; you cut it at the root, you shook out all the good, and threw the body into your subconscious.
You cut up my affections; you stored them in your selfishness, and turned them to dust.
You broke my heart. You took it in your hands, you tore it into two, it turned cold as ice, and you shattered it across my future with you.
You shocked me to the core, a surreality I long to never feel again. The abundance of my tears was enough to drown me, and suffocate me into an eternal river of agony –– that my memories of 'us' will float upon.
You deceived me beyond repair, I thought you would hold me through the hard times, instead you trampled on my pride, you flattened my hope, you destroyed the lov

Korra curled into her little body, desperately seeking warmth that would not come to her. She was tucked tightly against a brick wall in an alleyway, snow lightly littering the ground around her and sending a chill through her small form.
She would have bent a small fire in her hand to keep herself warm, but decided not to risk it what if someone saw the little Water Tribe girl Firebending? Even though it was unlikely, someone could see her, someone who might be involved with the Equalists, and they couldn't know, no one could that she was the Avatar. If someone found out, she would be in unavoidable danger.
She remembered what her parents used to tell her "Don't let anyone know, Korra. Keep your secret to only yourself." It was by those words that she abided, never letting on that she could bend three of the four elements she needed to be able to. They had told her she had to pretend to only be a Waterbender, and so pretend she did.

Mako paced himself back and forth in the living room while he muttered incoherent words only to scowl after words.

Asami, who was in the kitchen, decided to make some tea and settle everyone's nerves.
"This wasn't supposed to happen " Mako finally stated as he stopped in front of a wall. "I just don't get it."
Bolin stood up from the couch and rubbed his neck. "Bro, I understand you are beyond confused and angry but please try to calm down.-"
"Calm down?" Mako mocked as he clenched his teeth. "How on earth am I supposed to calm down? I just found out today that not only is Korra the future heir of the Southern Water Tribe but now she is also engaged to another man. She is going to marry another man. Tell me, Bolin. If Asami was in

Bolin smiled as he looked at the window, seeing the dark shadow outline of his brother about a few feet away coming towards their guest home. "It's him! Oh I knew it would end well! I bet those two are not allowing to keep their paws from one another this minute!"
"You're such a hopeless romantic aren't you?" Asami stated as she gave him a peck on the cheek.
Bolin gave her a toothy grin. "You know it. I have been waiting for these two to go out for like ever! I just can't wait until I get to call their "make out sessions", so sweet that they'll give me a toothache! "

Tahno lazily opened his eyes as the sun glared at his direction. He winced as sun pierce through the form of Korra, was leaning towards him.
"Why are laying in the park fountain?" Korra asked as she tilted her head in genuine curiosity.
Tahno instantly shot up and mumbled something intangible while slightly blushing at the fact that Korra discovered him sleeping in what he likes to call one of "his temporary homes." Apart from losing his bending, his friends, his fan girls, his fame, and his pride, Tahno was finding himself homeless.
Despite the fact Amon took his bending and cheated his way to first place, he was still awarded the prize winnings. With that money however, Tahno went straight to all the best healers in the city to see if somehow he could get his bending back. He spent all night trying to find a cure but it wasn't a success.

"Where do you keep the tea bags?" Korra asked the older Firebender, pulling open a cupboard of the small attic kitchen, looking for the items in question.
"Next one over," he instructed her, watching the kettle closely. Korra opened the cupboard next to the one she had been previously searching and saw a few bags sitting in a glass jar, and reached inside for one. Inspecting it, she decided she'd like it well enough before shutting the cupboard door and placing said bag on the counter. Walking over to Mako, she bumped hips with him and gave him a smirk when he looked at her.
She stood beside him, and he knocked against her side, too. Korra smiled at him again, and then the kettle began to scream, signalling that it was ready to be removed. Mako took the contraption off the burner and poured the steaming water into a teapot beside him, and Korra grabbed the tea bag and placed it inside it before they relocated to the small table in the center of the ro
NamelessA nameless creature jammed into a nameless space located in an unknowable location was all that stood between Experiment 726 and what he considered to be the Endless Stream of Creation itself. The creature was large and menacing, but seemingly beautiful to behold. Experiment 726 crinkled his eyelids at the creature that stood before him, frustratingly unable to comprehend all but the most simple adjectives about it. And yet… it was as clear as day and cold as night.Nameless3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Cold. That was something you could call it, 726 mused. It was one of a very limited number of describing words that he could muster about this impossible place, because no matter how much he looked or analysed anything, nothing seemed to make much sense.
“Why come here?” The nameless creature demanded. “And how? No creature such as yourself should even be capable of getting here.”
“I'm just lucky?” 726 tried. “I honestly don’t know.”

My cousin found me
Curled up beneath the banana tree
A baby snake snuggled under my arm
She wasn’t alarmed
I knew the creature was lost
Such as I, as a child
Scared and alone without a father in the world
But I didn’t know that
My aunt killed it
And made me cry
I cried for so long and so hard
She wasn’t compassionate
The creature was new
Such as I, as a human
Fresh and alive in my youth
But I didn’t know that
My mom found me
Nuzzled in the tresses of my own hair
A fragile scrap of hope snagged by the morning
She wanted me to get up
And go to school
Such as I, as a victim
Self-conscious and afraid under the glare of others
But I didn’t know that
My grandmother loves me
Through all my obvious surface flaws
Though she couldn’t see that I was
She wept for days

Writing mental illness (a short guide)When incorporating mental illness into a piece of literature, the most important tool you need to use is research. This is true whether you want the mental illness to play a large part OR a small one, and it is true whether you know someone with mental illness or not. In fact, it's even true if you have the illness yourself, because no two people are the same, and your character may display different facets to you due to contributing factors like experience and personality.Writing mental illness (a short guide)2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
That said, research is not the first thing you should do, because before you get stuck into that research, you need to look at WHY you want to include mental illness in your literature. If you think it would be cool or fun, you might want to rethink it unless you're prepared to put in a lot of work because living with mental illness is not either of those things (generally) and what you're doing for a bit of fun has the potential to negatively impact someone else's life in a big way because stigma & misrepresentatio

He almost didn't believe what he had just heard. He creaked his head around to the unassuming officer at the entrance to the saloon.
"You're sure?" he asked from his perch at the bench beside the barkeep.
"Sure as can be, Sheriff," the officer rattled, his voice cracking with fear. "It's...it's him."
The Deputy at his side straightened the ten gallon hat on his metal head and doubled back.
"I'll be a Met's uncle," he groaned. "That devil's here? In our town?"

At last the house on Crest St appeared through the lightning.
Shannon banged on the door. “Ms. Swanson! Open the door! Please!” she screamed through the thunder.
“Let me go! I don’t want to be here!” Laura screamed.
As soon as Shannon felt the door open she barged into the house pushing Ms. Swanson into the wall.

Am I really? I'm usually the one girl who sits quietly in the back of the classroom, and rarely participates in public. I'm the one who hates to be on the spotlight with questions, who cries silently when someone berates her. I hardly ever ask for anything, but for you to listen when I feel like talking. Whether it be serious or not, a pair of loyal ears is a good thing to have.

Given the remaining candidates out of the initial crop of crazy; and the nature of the Republican Party in the last three years alone (not counting their actions under the Bush administration); isn't it time we wrote them off and called for a new Conservative Party? Lets face it; short of a Constitutional Amendment establishing Instant Runoff voting; this is the best option we have right now.
Its important to note that this is how politics has worked in America since the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans; every time one party fell out of touch with the interests of the public, they found themselves being replaced by someone more appropriate. The Federalists were replaced by the Whigs, Democrat-Republicans were replaced by the Democrats, the Whigs were replaced by the Republicans. With the current GOP swap of Congressional and Presidential candidates all championing platforms that are either antiquated, xenophobic, or ineffective at actually addressing this country's problems;

No matter what I say
I'm a bit of a reject
Have been every day
So forgive me please
At least this one mistake
It is not with ease
That this smile I fake
Because every single night
It seems like a test
That slowly feeds the fright
Can't I have just a bit of rest
Or do I have to struggle
Is that my fate
To fight as I crumble
And live buried in hate
Is this what I've become
A monster in hiding
To slowly be undone

The large figure settled down in her bed, a nest of white sheets and miscellaneous soft items found around the lab. The room was small and safe, decorated only with a dusty bookshelf and a small, plain desk in the opposite corner. Forgotten, torn pages and reports littered the floor, text illegible and irrelevant.
The only light in the room was allowed access through the cracked and filthy window that perched in the higher half of the room; it was positioned so golden rivulets from the setting sun would spill through and over the nest.
The last red traces of a dying sun flitted over the once-pristine sheets that cushioned the great body of the Ninetales, and they trailed off the tufts of pale gold fur. The sun was below the horizon now, allowing the first few stars above to blink into view. A sphere of icy white appeared in the sky, brightening as the ball of fire sank lower and lower behind the di
