NightmaresYou know how you feel at night, when you toss and turn in bed from fright?Nightmares1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The monsters haunt you, searching everywhere, and what are you supposed to do?
Do you face them with your fists closed tight, making sure they know you're ready to fight?
Or do you stay in the shadows with your heart pounding, waiting for the alarm to start sounding?
You know that it is just a dream and nothing is really as it seems.
But no matter how hard you try, all you want to do is break down and cry.
You tell yourself that it isn't real, but that's the exact opposite of how it feels.
The monsters turn and look you in the eyes and in their reflection you see your demise.
As you prepare to take the final blow the entire world begins to slow.
In a matter of seconds you will be dead, but then you jump out of your bed.
Beads of sweat drip down your face and you realize you have won the race.
You sit back and think of the terrors you beat when you feel the sudden grasp of your feet.
You're pulled to the floor an
The Girl Who Dreamt of Never Being AloneThere was a time,The Girl Who Dreamt of Never Being Alone9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where I never smiled.
It was time in which I never cared much.
Not for anyone,
Not for anything.
When I was younger,
People thought it was just a phase.
That I'd soon over come my shyness,
And have friends.
But I never changed.
People grew scared,
Thinking I had some type of black magic in me.
They thought I was depressed,
Or that I had secrets I couldn't tell anybody.
They sent me to many strange people,
To therapists dressed in covers of white.
But nothing ever changed.
Their worries grew into disgust.
Their stares of pity,
Into painful stares of hatred.
The kind and scared words became sharper.
And each one,
Left a new scar on my heart.
The truth is,
I didn't care.
Not for anyone,
Not for anything.
They could do what they wanted.
It wouldn't bother me.
My walls grew so tall,
It turned to stone.
At the age of nine,
I was just empty.
I didn't feel anything,
Only dull and hollow.
I felt like a doll.

Practicing will make it better,
I promise it will ease the sting.

Lovely little broken dove,

This is for me. No...This is for all the boys and girls who don't feel as if they are worthy enough of love, or acceptance, or living. This is for all the boys and girls who feel as though they are nothing. This is for all the boys and girls who return home from school every day, just to sob into their pillow, for maybe being ugly, or stupid, or gay. This is for all the boys and girls around the world, who live in horror, but never get airplay of their events.
This is for us all.
In every one of my years, I have never been so upset.

since our end
it's been quite a long while
and the scene has finally gone by
the passing days are cruel
but time has helped me heal
in this town we lived in and loved in
the tomorrow we both wanted parts in
has somehow slipped away
as if the sun has cleared any trace
the hands of the clock
are slowly digging at our scars
and scratching all the pain away
despair i couldn't shake,
relief that covered all of me,
and barely fallen rain;
how can i explain
though it pains just like your memory
that somewhere in my heart
a part of me still aches?
my name on your lips
from deep inside of me
is vivid, clear, and new
just like it's always been
these wounds that i've worn
were from thorns
that should have
but pierce me
gently so that i never will forget
this chain we've made
of the pain and all the happiness
just another one
that i'll carry in my heart

The choices I've made,
So why can't you leave me be?
When I'm kissing my girlfriend,
Why can't I just get a boyfriend?
When you send me to my room,
Are you proud?
When my tears drown me,
And I have nothing left to do
But turn to my knife?
Are you proud knowing you're the reason
I find my scars to be so beautiful,
Even though you tell me they're horrid.
Take a look around,
Step out of your generation.
No one else cares anymore,
Who's so disgusted by the fact
That, for once, I'm happy.

But I guess I don't
Since I don't know you
I never really knew you
Veins run under your skin
Your heart pumps blood
Your brain produces thoughts
And you take a breath
Yet you're not really breathing
When was the moment that you stopped being alive
And began to merely live?
Nothing really matters
You don't care much about what you feel
Except for that one ceaseless echo
Sending waves through your bones
And you feel as though even your own heart aids
In your pain
It hurts, doesn't it?
It hurts like nothing you have ever felt before
It never stops
It is not physical
You cannot heal the wounds with your mother's band aides
You cannot drink medicine to make the pain go away
It beats with your heart
And each inhale you take
Is just another
Your whole life has been truly agonizing, hasn't it?
Curling up, and thinking down, as your room spins you all around.
According to you, this is all one endless fight.

It pierced Arthur painfully, his cheeks sweltering under its pressure and anticipation.
Each pair was fixed on him, including the smiling man kneeling in front of him, holding out that little box filled with surprise and expectation.
Was he breathing? Arthur wasn't sure anymore. He couldn't feel it, just every eye on him and the burning heat in his face.

Then, disappointment. Surprise.
Alfred watched as his lover whipped around, running up the stairs towards his room, leaving him kneeling there with ide eyes and no answer.
"Ar-Artie?" The American's voice was soft, rarely afraid but still hurt and he stared with pain in his blue eyes up the staircase the Brit had run off to.
It filled the air again until every surprised eye was on Feliciano who thought quick and ran forward, grabbing the microphone.

Besides that, unfortunately the dirty blonde had remembered he still had on his fairy costume. He looked almost disgusted with it as he reached behind him and pulled the fake wings from his back. He didn't care it left two holes in the back of his shirt and had just crushed the flimsy things in his hands before throwing them away. He had also done the same for the frilly "leafs" at the bottom of the green pants he wore and brushed most of the sparkles off the shirt, leaving them to flutter onto the ground to mingle with the dust. Feliciano didn't say anything as he watched his friend let out his frustration on his costume. At least he hadn't tried to throw the ring away yet as it still rested safely in his pocket.

I was walking along the streets in search of something to do. The Baltics were going Trick or Treating so I was all alone in the house. I decided to go out. Adjusting my scarf and putting on my hat, I set out into the frozen night air. The time was around 9:00 PM. Give or take a few minutes. When I came to sign I stopped to read it. It was the sign of the old graveyard. No one ever goes there. It is said that it is haunted by the soldiers of the past. I read the sign. Beware all who enter here. You are entering the gates to Hell. I laughed. Like I was afraid of some silly legends or some stupid sign.
I tightened my scarf and pushed open the giant metal gates. They made a spine tingling creaking noise.
As I walked in I started to hear strange things, like somethi

Hetalia Academy 8Romano patted down the hallway. That stupid Spaniard hadn't escorted him today, and he ended up having to ask a few random strangers for help. Every time he would walk into class the teacher would watch him sit and ask why he was late. Though they were sympathetic since he was new, they wondered why he had help his first days but not today? All he could say was that Antonio left him in the dirt that day and he had to find his own way around this giant ass school. Not like that, of course.

"Dad! What the fuck! How the hell can you do that to Matt! He has every fucking right to choose!" Alfred started shouting, his words mixing with Arthur's.

Daydream like you'll live forever,

On grudges that kill you inside,
Give like you'll never get anything back,
Be someone who has nothing to hide.

When you do, stand tall and brave,
Laugh loud, no matter who hears you,
Learn why joy cannot fear the grave.

More Thoughts on PolyamoryPolyamory is very difficult in practice. On paper it makes sense, the theory is good. But to behave in this way is unbelievably frightening to some people. Most people? Maybe it's me, maybe it's the way I go about friendships. If someone becomes interesting enough for me to invest time in, they seem like an intense, intelligent entity that I can learn from, I get excited. Share humor? Yes, motherfucking yes. And when I become dazzled I begin to love the person. It's not that I suddenly fall in love and set all my hopes and dreams on any one person, it's that they have afforded themself the unleashing of the unconditional.More Thoughts on Polyamory2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
