Another nightly run away from a hundred and ten
It seems as if you can just never win
Boy oh boy, let's review your situation
Another night full of your worst humiliation
It seems as if it's a dreadful hour long
What kind of sick pleasures derive from this game
Just twisted little people who indulge in your pain
Do you want to awake?
Boy, do you want to awake from your terrible dream?
Where the world is against
And the torture's intense
And there's never escape from your being seen
Boy, do you want to awake from your terrible dream?
Where the laughter it rings
Like a banshee's shriekings
And where everyone you know has turned against you it seems
Do you want to awake?
Girl oh girl, are you hearing this now?
All the sneering and laughing and jeering of the crowd
'Cause you're the center of attention so take a bow
(You might as well)
Girl oh girl, how do you suffer tonight?
All the prying eyes, and pointed fingers that are in your sight
I Lost My HeartMy love has gone, my yearning passed.I Lost My Heart2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I lost my way, I lost my heart.
I didn’t care to guard it well,
Now it is to be found nowhere.
Just now I thought I had it here,
But only emptiness remains.
It didn’t shatter, didn’t break,
Just disappeared and left no trace.
Oh, tell me why I couldn’t be
The one that lasted evermore.
Oh, tell me, couldn’t I be good
Take better care of what is dear?
But love, alas, I lost my heart
Forgive me that I didn’t see
How swiftly it escaped my grasp
And left this place forevermore.
I lost my way, I can’t go on,
There’s nothing left worth fighting for.
I lost my heart, and I’m afraid
Without my heart I cannot love.

"I don't understand it." Rebecca muttered to herself. "What was he talking about?" Rebecca had left the clearing where she had encountered the vampires. There was nothing left there. She had tried searching for the bullet that had killed Ryan, but no such luck. Whoever had killed him clearly didn't want him telling Rebecca something which made Rebecca believe that Ryan was telling the truth. There was a threat and it all seemed to center around this "S" character. "But, who is S?" Rebecca whispered.
As Rebecca walked, she felt the night embrace her with a chilled wind it comforted her and made her feel refreshed. Her fatigue was gone and her mind was clearing. She always found it easier to think when the night was young. Then, that reminded her

And again, you were woken up by your annoying phone going off at 5 am in the morning. You abruptly rose from your bed and ran to it in a flash to shut the alarm off. You’d always set it in your desk and not anywhere close to you, so that you’d “have” to get up to turn it off. Smart. It was the only way you wouldn’t go back to sleep. As if that swift girl wasn’t you, you started heading out of your room to the bathroom with resentment. Almost walking like a zombie towards the door, a strange feeling conquered your chest. It was another day—yet it was the very same day you’d been living over and over in the last year. Ever since the events of New York, nothing would be the same. Your boyfriend, well, now your ex-boyfriend, was one of the many who were killed in the alien invasion. There, every time you looked in the mirror you’d see him. It never mattered how skillfully you’d hidden his belongings, nothing was to pry him out of

Rebecca sat in the middle of the den. Her eyes were tired and her hair was wild and uncombed. She was exhausted, but her body would not sleep she hadn't even closed her eyes since her father had left. All around her lay the blood and decaying remains of zombies. Her pistols were resting on the coffee table. Both had been emptied of their ammunition and she would have to renew her ammo. However, the question that egged at her now was one so difficult, just saying it in her mind wasn't enough.
"What do I do now?" Rebecca whispered.
This question had never been a real problem for Rebecca to answer. Even after her mother died, her father had been there to help her pick up the pieces. It was him who had explained to her the existence of supernatural creatures he had taught her, encouraged her, and he had loved her. With him around, Rebecca had never felt more secure. He was all that she had. But now he was gone. The world seemed so much darker now, and it had nothing to do wi

"God, I hate school." Rebecca shouted. No one could hear her, of course. The night was all that listened, and it's noises were all that answered her. The tree bark was rough against her back. Her leather jacket felt warm against the cold night air and her body felt relaxed after a long day of feeling lonely and bored. Rebecca was running her fingers along her knife, feeling the cold steel under her fingertips. More than once, she wished that she had been carrying this while back in school she could have used it when she got locked out of her locker and when that boy had touched her butt. Strapped to her back was the black compound bow and a quiver of 10 arrows. She welcomed their weight on her back and was happy to have that security. The backpack that she carried around in school felt too bulky and it almost made her feel exposed.
"I'm not learning anything there this is my school." She whispered to herself. The night was her home and her teacher. She kne

The hands of those whom I know--

They're reaching for me,

My breath shortens as I start to panic.
I know that I am trapped.
Unable to move.
Unable to see what is ahead.

I start to cry.
The drops of despair-
It burns my skin.

They quickly trickle down my face.
I am drowning myself in a bottomless lake of my very own tears.
It hurts me to feel like this.
And I can feel it surrounding me.
The waves of death-

"Time to wake up, Rebecca." Rebecca rubbed her eyes sleepily. She hadn't gotten back home until 3 in the morning, and she was exhausted. Her body was stiff and she wanted nothing more than to just pass out, and forget about everything. Rebecca had a slight envy for vampires they didn't have to wake up every morning, but instead got to enjoy the pleasures of the night. Some creatures get all the luck.
"Dad, do I have to?"
"You've got school today so yes." Rebecca suddenly grabbed her pillow and shoved it over her face. She had TOTALLY forgotten about school! The summer was finally over and high school kicked back in. She was a senior in high school and all 4 years had been a living hell! How could ANYONE survive school? There's no fun, no monsters, no weapons it's all just classes and tests which wouldn't be so bad if those classes taught Rebecca anything she WANTED to know.

"Aaaaah!" Rebecca's eyes burst open. She hadn't screamed but that was definitely a scream. Rebecca spun to look, and saw that the vampires weren't looking at her in fact, they were looking the other way. The one they called Mike was dragging a girl by the wrist. She was screaming, her black hair was a mess and her shirt was torn at certain places. Rebecca couldn't make out all of her features with this lack of light but she knew that this girl was close to her age. Who was she?
"Did you really think we wouldn't find you, monster hunter?" Ryan snarled. Rebecca breathed out with relief; she hadn't been found out. They thought that this stranger was her. "We knew that there was a monster hunter somewhere around here, and we knew that it was a chick."

The night was basked in a gorgeous glow from the full moon. The night was alive with death. The tree shadows cast eerie shadows on the ground, but this was all the same to the shadow that was slipping from tree to tree in the middle of the wildlife park. The figure slipped quiet as a fox down behind a bush and stayed perfectly still. She peeked over the edge of the limbs and saw what she had been looking for.
There were three targets she could see all three lumbering across the forest. They hadn't spotted her yet, and when she was done they wouldn't ever know she had been there. She reached behind her and pulled out a large black compound bow. It was heavy with a powerful kick to it but it was her weapon of choice for this situation. From her quiver, she pulled an arrow. The arrow itself didn't look special, but she knew different. This arrow was tipped with blessed silver nothing that she hit with this arrow ever got back up again. Placing the arrow carefully on th

The tall man patted him on the shoulder, "I'll see what I can do."
He walked into a smoking rubble of a bar. Tables were turned over, drinks spilled, bottles shattered, glass crunched under foot.
He found her sitting in the corner, back to the wall, a whining gun in one hand, and a half-empty bottle of Tequila in the other. From the evidence on the table it wasn't the first.
"River," he muttered calmingly.

Here, the rain falls down on me
Your words resound within me emptily
We met, and in that moment
I fell for you, but it was a lie
And I, and I, and I, and I
Can’t hate you even though I try
This is goodbye - I’ll go with my shattered heart
If I were to look back at you, I would fall apart
So turn from me, and let me be in peace
The loneliness provides me too much time to think
And in my gloomy thoughts where I have begun to sink
The light you gave is flickering away
It’s time I let you go for good
My heart’s no longer beating as it should
If I dove down into the sea
Could I find some relief from injury?
I am in your arms, but only in my mind
I can feel it here, this ache
This ache, this ache, this ache
I wonder, how much pain can I take?
The memories of us reflected here in my eyes
They glitter like the brightest stars in the evening sky
And plummet like the tears I start to cry
