Equality for allYou may think you know the difference between right and wrong,Equality for all3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
But let me share some of my views with you in a song.
It doesn't matter if you're L, G, B, T, Q or straight,
What about equality, to love not hate?
So tell me your views, why you think it's so bad.
You can still be loved if you have two moms or two dads.
Don't preach us with the Bible, your words were heard.
But if you say God hates us, that's nonsense, absurd!
Genesis 2:24 & Ruth 1:14
Ruth loved Naomi as Adam did Eve.
Don't judge, but love as people are seen,
We're queer, we're here and ain't gonna leave.
Just deal with us liking the same sex,
If you're straight, it's fine, we give you respect..
But if you're a homophobic jerk,
We'll toy with you by giving you a wink and a smirk.
NightmaresYou know how you feel at night, when you toss and turn in bed from fright?Nightmares2 years 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 Alone2 years 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.
Are you proud yet?I know you're not proud of me,Are you proud yet?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
Are you proud yet?

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
i never will r

Chapter 6: Trust Issues
Pilot wearily trudged through the forest, every step a torment to his injured leg.
How long had they been walking? It must have been over 40 minutes, if his perception of time was correct. His head hung low, though every few moments he glanced up at the sniper scuffling sluggishly in front of him.
He will change again. Filthy, treacherous zebra. Must stay wary, Pilot thought to himself, almost waiting for his drained-looking companion to turn into a monster any moment and eat him.
Suddenly Snippy raised his arm, and with suspicion in his keen eyes Pilot stopped and watched, judging his companion's every move – but it turned out that the shoe was just scratching the back of his head. Sighing in relief, Pilot resumed a more relaxed stance and continued walking.
Maybe what he said is really true. Could it be? Pilot wondered. The alien scarf was very pale and d

He had happened upon the room by pure chance. The Captain's disappearance had put the Engineer on edge. That man was the key to his survival and it was only a matter of time before some hazard of the wasteland would claim his life. Surprisingly it just took a few hours to locate him and Gromov was sure it was only because of the luck that Captain seemed to rub off onto others. He found Captain holed up in a mostly collapsed building, the only part that remained intact was a small dark room. Breathing a sigh of relief he was about to enter the room to reprimand the man for disappearing without a trace for days but stopped, his boot hovering just over the threshold. Captain's purple lenses glinted from the darkness. Gromov backed away. He never entered the room.
And Captain never left.
The engineer left the man alone; he had hope that eventually Captain would come out on his own. Each day Gromov would come to the room but the Captain never moved from that spot. How t

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.

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.

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.
"A-Al Al I "
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.

If you had asked Ludwig what his worst nightmare would have been, he probably would have responded with WWIII or a world with no rules. He never would have imagined that his best friend and lover would ever get sick. It never entered his mind that he could someday lose the person he had grown to rely on.
When Italy's economy took a sharp dip, Feliciano's health followed suit. Ludwig desperately tried to take care of him and help boost the economy. He faithfully stayed by Feliciano's side; holding his hair out of the way and rubbing his back soothing as he threw up, cooking whatever the Italian desired even though he would just continue to lose weight, tucking him underneath layers of blankets and gently holding him as he slept to try to cease his shivers. It was painful to see the Italian constantly in pain. He helped him around the house as he would get sore. He would hold him bridal style, gently tuck his head in the crook of his neck and hum

Scowling to himself, Desmond looked down at the papers he held, frowning at the panting breaths that were coming from behind the door. "Ezio, get your pants on! I need to make photocopies!" He called out, tilting his head back.
"I hate to point out the obvious, but my pants are most definetely on, Desmond." Ezio raised an eyebrow. "What's going on?"
"Someone's having sex in the copier room and it isn't you?" Desmond stared at him. Ezio blinked, and stood next to Desmond, pressing his ear to the door.

They even went and found Alfred one, though he insisted not to make it too “girly” or anything so it ended up being a simple silver with three small diamonds pushed into the interior.

England said in a near whisper. A faint smile adorned his face as he looked up at the American who grinned back, the reflection of the sun bouncing off his glasses. It was early evening when he arrived at America's door steps, yet the sun still glowed brightly in the late July sky. "I guess. I'm just happy it's over." America shrugged as he lifted the other's suitcase off the ground and entered the house, England following suit.
"Yes." England replied simply. It had been several months since he had last seen the younger nation, having to communicate primarily through the phone.
After finding himself alone in the room immediately after entering, he began to roam around, acquainting himself with it once more. It hadn't changed much.
America peered over to the Brit from mid-stairway as he was climbing down, after placing the suitcase in the bedroom. England was standing awkwardly in the middle of the living room, glancing around at the items decorating a nearby shelf. E
