Still the Same Girl (first Draft)The Abyss was tempting again tonight. Just a few steps away from Bell-mère's grave it called Nami to take a final rest, too. Let go, It whispered. You gave so much already. Nami was as weary as an old sail hanging limply in the wind. No fierce wind could fill her with joy again, it all seeped through the holes that had been torn into her.
“You're still the same girl.” Nojiko had told her. She couldn't have been more wrong. The girl that was Nami had died along with her mother as Arlong had shot her. Just when Nami had finally been ready to call Bell-mère by that name. Mother. And Nami had died again when she was forced to work for Arlong's crew. The flag that killed her mother forever stitched into her arm as an irremovable stain of sin. And then maybe a third time, as she told the other villagers and was shunned for betraying her own mother. She withheld the real reason why she did so, didn't want to share the burden. She had thought s

she holds her elbows like wings

I want to tell her
to keep one hand in her purse
so she can always find her keys,
to keep an eye on the door
and the door always open
so she can run if she doesn't feel safe,
but her cheeks are rorschach-splotch red
and the tension in her shoulders
warns me she's not ready
to hear this.
And there is the possibility that
maybe I’m not ready to tell
I’m just as devastated as her;
that she is surrounded by friends and family
who are violated by a community
where no man can say yes all men.

Hinata glanced around the unfamiliar foliage of the forest. She couldn't help but wonder where Naruto was taking her. Then again, a blush formed on her face. She didn't mind as long as she was with Naruto. Being at his side filled her with confidence. He was her passion and together they could accomplish anything. "Ano, Naruto-kun, how much farther are we going to do?"
"It's not that much funnier Hinata-chan. What's wrong, those sweets making you sluggish?" he playfully teased as Hinata's face went crimson.
"Naruto-kun." A whine escaped her lips. She knew he was joking, but considering her nature, Hinata was rather bashful about talking about her figure. Whether it be bad, but honestly it was more along the lines of compliments. There was even a time Hinata thought that Naruto wouldn't find her appealing because of her rather large breasts. Thankfully, Naruto, while a healthy young man he wasn't a perverse fiend.

I wanted to make a list of all the special people I would like to thank for being around this year. I am awfully scared I might forget someone important so I kept procrastinating this.

from your brandy-drenched eyes;
This dripping heart of mine can only feel,
