Today I cried.
I wasn't bullied today.
Neither was I bullied yesterday.
Nor am I going to be tomorrow.
But I cried.
Because I relived every moment.
And that was enough.
I succumbed to my emotions.
Today I cried.
I wasn't particularly weak today.
Neither was I weak yesterday.
Nor am I going to be weak tomorrow.
But I cried.
Because I relived every moment.
And I'm not ashamed.
I succumbed to my emotions.
But... I'm not ashamed.
Today I cried.
But that's just the way I am.
Once in a while, you just need a good cry.
To remind yourself of:
the little emotion you have left.

You heard words could never hurt,

not realizing you were wrong,

Look around and see
Take a look at what this little
Shit world seems to me!
Trawling through the stinking muck
With the idiots and thieves who get all the luck
While the poor, the lame and the blind
Well we are the ones who are left behind
And the boy looking out the window
Only sees the trees and the sunshine.
He doesn't see the shit and all the grime.
And the girl sitting in her room
Doesn't see the man who ought'd be her groom!
Someone above is laughing!
Laughing at the cosmic joke
And with nothing but a nasty past
I may as well fucking go for broke
Grasping at straws
Balling up my paws
And praying one day I'll be thrown a bone.
But all on earth and above
Know in their hearts that I won't find love
Love ain't got my name on it
No it ain't got my name on it
Too many others have claim and I'm all alone
With my lovely friends
Happiest in the day when it fucking ends
And I can't see their happy faces
And their higher social places
And their sunny smiles

(Name) continued to shake as she slumped beside her two friends, the adrenaline running through her veins kept her from truly calming down despite her exhaustion. The trio had just managed to outrun an unusually large horde of zombies.
She sighed and ran a gloved, trembling hand through her (length) hair. They had been extremely lucky this time. None of them had gotten a proper meal or a decent amount of sleep since the infection, as the media had called it, had finally spread to their town. She could remember watching news reports and seeing insane clips of infected individuals becoming feral and viciously devouring anyone near them.
Beauty and the TrollEridan x Reader Chapter 1Beauty and the Troll2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Long, long ago, there lived a prince of the sea. The prince lived in a ship on his own island, cold and alone with no one to talk to. One day, a sickly low-blood came to his door, asking for help and shelter from the sea storm, and in return, she offered to help him with his loneliness. The prince scoffed at the low-blood, for he was skeptical and too proud for any sort of help from the underling. He had already lost any hope for his wishes to come true long ago, deeming them childish and too painful to think of. The low-blood warned him, not be put-off by such differences, as what truly mattered was the heart and soul of someone. Once again, the prince scoffed and slammed the door in her face, dismissing her. The low-blood then threw off her cloak and revealed herself as a high-blood with great powers. The prince tried to explain himself, that he didn't know of the enchantresses position, but it was too late. She had already seen that he was too cold, and unc

I can’t feel my toes and at first I think
It’s just my toes.
I can cover them up.
I can warm them.
It spreads, like fire,
I glance away for a second, it seems, and my feet are cold
That’s funny, I didn’t feel that
Maybe I’ll cover them up too
I’ll warm them up.
I’ll take a nap
Maybe a short rest will make it all better, warm them
What’s that? How long has it been?
My legs… are you still mine..
Why has my breath left me, short?
Has everything but deserted me?
What about you, are you still here?
Are you still with me?
And before I can say goodbye, I think my thoughts are leaving me too –

Your eyes scan the room, nobody was in it but yourself. You hunch over and scratch your back a bit, everything that happened just before you feel asleep was a blur. You never remember that you feel asleep on Karkat's shoulder. Cracking your neck, you open the floor-door and slowly climb down the latter.
Once you hit the last 3 or 4 steps you hop down and open the closet door, exiting. You walk down the hall way, leaning against the wall for support. You might have slept, but GOD where you tired still, like, physically. Groaning, you re-position your bow, which is, well, was lose.

When the Sun meets the Moon...
Told in Josh's POV:
So there I was, flying on the Pidgeot I received. It wasn't far anymore, maybe an hour left from the five hours we've already flown. It did surprise me. I guess this Pidgeot was trained to fly such long distances, since it didn't want to stop on our trip from Unova to Johto, and it was dark already. Solé and Luno sat on the Pidgeot as well, both sleeping. I didn't want to officially 'catch' them yet. Not yet... They still had their freedom. I looked down. The lights of some of Kanto's cities appeared through the clouds. Some were brighter, some were hardly visible. Time passed, and we were close...
"You'd better look in front of you instead of down. Before you know you'll fall off..." I turned back to the Pidgeot.
"Sorry." I apologized.
"It's ok. It's gorgeous, and I can't blame you." I smiled. I looked up instead of down now. A bright moon shined through the clouds. I looked to Luno, his yellow rings glow

She chooses a crayon with a feeling of ease.
With three circles, a stroke, and then another,
She draws herself, her mother, and her father.
Hoisting her prize high in the air,
She sprints back inside, wind whipping her hair.
On a very important mission,
She finds her mother in the kitchen.
It doesn't take her very long,
To realize something's deadly wrong.
Her mother's hunched over in her chair,
Weeping out of sheer despair.
She shows her mom her family drawing,
Who smiles and holds her little girl with longing.
Her mom leans down and kisses her head,
Then gently whispers, "Time to go to bed."
Walking to her room in all but a hurry,
She wonders why she has to sleep early.
Little does the innocent girl know,
Her daddy's never coming home.
Christmastime in Sword Art OnlineIt was that time of the year.Christmastime in Sword Art Online2 years ago in Romance More Like This
But it definitely was not the most wonderful time of the year for Kirito. It was already December 24, and he was still stuck inside Sword Art Online. Granted he had only been there for about two months, but he still had been hoping to spend Christmas with his family, rather than alone. He had been alone for the most part since joining SAO, so this wouldn't be any different.
Still, he could have been at home, spending time with his sister decorating a tree, making cookies, or having a snowball fight. Now, he would do none of that. It just wasn't the same without her. He could appreciate her so much more now, when she was far away and there wasn't much hope of seeing her for some time to come. It only made him resolve harder to find a way to beat this game, so that he could go home and see everyone again.
In the meantime, preparations were being made for Christmas in SAO. No one really knew what to expect for t

Here in this dark room
I sit in the gloom
They left me here all alone
With nothing to do but moan
I can hear Death's call

I'll be out of this mess
There'll be no more stress
In the light of the moon
I'll be home very soon
Rot To The Bones
In this coffin I'm all alone
Left to rot away to the bone
Its quiet and dark in here
I'm at peace, there's nothing to fear
So leave me alone
While I rot to the bone
I Wouldn't Be Here
My skin feels cold to the touch
I long for warmth so much
When I feel hot flames licking at my skin
I wonder what was my sin
I fear into sleep I fell
Because it looks like I'm in hell
It felt like I was flying
But i guess I was dying
They must have burred me
Because dark was all I could see
If I hadn't jumped I wouldnt be here
Pressed against the wall in fear

I can see their eyes
I can taste their repulse
Their transparent disguise
The devils are watching
They are everywhere
Waiting for a mistake
The fire ready to fucking flare
Burning us to ashes
Rising slowly - the smoke
Their eyes dangerously glint
Their merciless side evoked
My body lies unmoving
Covered with burns and cuts
The devils seductively dance
The dance of death - they strut

Tea, tea, a magical drink,
The more you drink, the more you think...
What if I should become a dinosaur,
A Pterodactyl, with a shrieking roar!
But no, that's not a tea type thing,
What if I was the queen, drinking with the king?
Yes, that's better, or an Asian maid,
Sitting in the sunset watching the Sakuras sway.
Or maybe it's three in the morning,
And papa's coffee's gone without warning,
He needs his shot of pure caffeine,
What could be better than that blackened sheen.
Steeped in a vat of boiling H2O,
Ready to get me ready to go,
For morn, noon, evening; all day,
Maybe a bit of lovely Earl Grey,
But I like my tea black as night,
Strong enough to make you cringe in spite,
But maybe I'll add a little honey,
Good for a sore throat and sick tummy,
Or should I be a young lady,
Sitting under a tree, making it shady,
And a little girl princess can drink with me,
A happy party, just we and tea.
Though, sometimes, I want to be alone,
So I might cry, or pout, or even moan,

This Lullaby, is a sweet little ditty,
To say it's great is only a pity.
It's about a boy, who loved a girl,
And their story that did unfurl.
The little boy tried to impress,
And the girl was, she must confess.
A song he wrote to her,
This Little Lullaby, made her heart stir.
"This is your Lullaby, hear it when you sleep,"
"Remember it, hear my voice, to comfort you when you weep."
"You are my love, my only true joy,"
"The only happiness to this mere boy."
"River-dance, and moonlit meadow-land."
"Let that be your memories hallowed brand."
"Sunset kisses, and the ocean breeze,"
"Just be glad always, oh please."
"My Love for you undying,"
"We, together are flying."
"Us, we, forever as one,"
"This is my dream, or my dream is none."
"This is your Lullaby, hear it when you sleep,"
Remember it, hear my voice, to comfort you when you weep."
That little boy and little girl grew old,
And together wrote a story untold,
About a sweet little Lullaby,

If you were thinking of me…
Now for the hard part:
I need you to know that I don't want this.
Because it completely blindsided me.
I was suddenly picked up out of this universe
And thrown into another.
And now I am constantly needing a reminder of how to breathe.
I did not ask for this.
I could have picked someone better;
Someone who would wrap their arms
Around my waist and mean it when
They say that everything is okay,
But I didn't. I didn't choose.

Which I forgot when I started to sink.
For as long as you have known Eridan Ampora, you have had peculiar feelings about him. At first, you couldn't describe them; buoyant, and uplifting, the first sign of hope you had seen from yourself for a while. Of course, you keep it from people how miserable you are; you have a good life, you're clever, and not exactly underprivileged. If you try to complain, people are bound to call you selfish, or spoiled, or something cruel along those lines.
But somewhere along the way, it finally strikes you. You're falling for the stupid fish. And the thought is terrible, because you two are such good friends, and how, how could he ever want a quadrant with someone like you?
Dragged further away from the shore,
And deeper into the drink...
It's like a whirlpool of despair, constantly sucking you down further. The more you think about it, the less and less likely it is Eridan would ever even cons

I have become death, the destroyer of worlds J. Robert Oppenheimer.
Every Man can become Death, with every bomb that falls, every shot that is fired, everyone becomes death.
The most common portrait of Death, is a skeleton, an Undead, hooded figure, holding a scythe.
But in truth, Mankind is death, the world is death, we kill at the drop of a hat, be it Man, Animal or plant.
Our existence so far has consisted of finding knowledge, ever since the dawn of man, 30% of our time has gone to researching things we need, and the remaining 70 % has gone to find more efficient ways to kill.
