Final WishFinal Wish3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
i feel lost in a world so big
surronded by hate and sorrow
a world full of nothing but evil
a world with no peace
i wonder what will happen
when we are all gone
will it start a new peace
or will it break like all our hearts
this is a place of pain
a place of war and death
there is nothing in these towns
nothing but regret and broken hearts
my final wish shall never be heard
my last words will never be remembered
my heart will be left shattered
my tears will be never ending
but i wish good fortune on this world
for i hope that it will only get better in time
for this is what i have wanted my whole life
a world filled with peace and love
a world filled with joy and laughter
a place filled with love and beating hearts
so i will stay in this cold world and hope for the best
cause that is my last and final wish in this place of pain
Fantasy LullabyHush little baby don't thou cryFantasy Lullaby4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
My little story will make thee sigh
A divine land thou will go tonight
A land that's surely a sight
The meadow flows in the breeze
Its beauty can be such a tease
Be sure to watch where ye has stepped
There are secrets this sea of green has kept
Small people with fluttering wings and glittering dust
To them, meeting you is a must
Their laughter sounds of tinkling bells
By the second, more come out of their shells
Thou begins to giggle with glee
As more come out to play with thee
A thundering noise thou begins to hear
Do not fret, there's no need to shed a tear
A galloping horse with a horn comes this way
Looking for a rider for the day
He stops in front of thee
No sign shows he will flee
The small people showed benevolence
Riding such a creature may at first seem tense
Be sure to hold on tight
The horse spreads its wings, ready to take flight
Into the infinite sky you go
Such a view can never be seen from below
The cool air surrounding ye
Up here anyone c
Link's Perspective on the WorldThe Triforce chose meLink's Perspective on the World2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don’t know what to think
They tell me I am chosen
I am cursed with that mark on my hand
I am being taught to use a sword
But I don’t want to
I want to put peace in the world
But they ignore me
They expect me to violent
And always kill monsters
But I’d rather play my ocarina
And never hurt a fly
They gave me a fairy
She yells at me every second
I don’t like her
I don’t like my life
I don’t want to be chosen
But they don’t care
“You have the mark
of the Triforce
You must kill monsters
And sacrifice your life
If you have to”
But I’m not brave
I’m a coward
I was born as the wrong person
I don’t want to be chosen
I just want to live in the forest
And enjoy life
But that girl with a 3-D book-like machine
Is controlling my every move
And control pads
She is happy with it
I wish she would leave me alone
But I can’t even control
What I do
Because of her
The Bridge of Decay“Do you know how it feels like when grains of sand are slipping through your hands? Do you know how it feels like when you’re standing in the sun’s light without feeling its warmth? “The Bridge of Decay2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
There is this wood bridge above an endless gap. Ahead, the horizon takes the shape of your every dream. But this is not just a simple bridge. It’s called The Bridge of Decay. With your every step, another wood board aligns before your feet. At the same time, if you look back you’ll see the bridge disbanding itself. It is impossible to come back, so you must choose wisely the way you’ll lead the wood boards. Also, you can’t stop moving because the construction of the bridge will stop at the same time as you. All that will remain its one wood board- the one you’re standing on.
The longer you’ll wait, the darker it will get and when you’ll decide to walk again… well, you won’t see the boards anymore. T

she talks through her wrinkles,
'i have no desire for food', she says.
i take her plate to the kitchen
noticing how the beetroot shavings bled into the skin of the chicken and brown rice.
it was blood, skin, and bone,
and the rice was a million starlike cells floating between.
this reminds me of my anatomy textbook:
we've been learning what's beneath our skin,
we learned that all cells divide. some cells often don't stop dividing.
other cells divide and stop when they should...
but not my grandmother's.
starlike, they explode, they shatter, they consume
i want to be mad at my grandmother's cells,
but what would that do?
i want to talk to my grandmother's cells,
i want to tell them they can be alive
and not kill her.
i have to catch the moon,
i have to visit hades and bargain with beautiful music,
i have to sell my voice for legs,
i have to sail the ocean blue in search of a good reason why cancer can't just be what it is.
this is not a fabled life
The Rules of FlyingThe Rules of Flying:The Rules of Flying2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
No#1: Don’t Fly Too High:
If you allow yourself to achieve a great height, there will only be enough air left for you to fall. Stay at a constant pace, don’t allow your head to float above the clouds.
Another juxtaposing comment upon rule 1 of flying, do not fly too close to the ground, to let creatures pull you down.
No#2: Avoid Trees:
While flying to your destination, many obstacles may get in your way, clipping a few branches may be fine for you depending on your strength. But always avoid the trunks of these obstacles, they will end your flight abruptly and you may not reach your destination in one piece.
This also applies to aeroplanes and other birds.
No#3: Don’t Flap Your Wings Too Much:
Although flapping your wings is necessary to achieve the height you require to succeed and complete your flight. Flapping unnecessarily only leaves you too tired to complete your journey.
Remember to flap your wings only when needed. Do not let another bird

There it lies before me. Silently criticising me. Mocking me. Motionless. An orb. Large. Round. And very. Very. Blue.
This is not the first time I have come face to face with this foe. Nor will it be the last. Soon I shall annihilate him! And the safety of humanity will fall upon me. Tiddle's the superior!
Well what did you think I was going to say? Do you really think there are such things as super heroes? Don't be silly! Kittens however. We exist. Sadly not all of us have homes and we are forced to roam the streets, keeping those nasty rodents and their diseases at bay. Sadly, though, your human minds do not see us as the reliable cleaners we are, you see us on the streets and assume we are worthless or broken.
However, back to the orb. I'm not allowed to touch the orb. O

Beer after beer,

I'm watching you slowly fade away.
Gulping them down,
Turning the music louder,
Laughing without a care.
I don't want you to get hurt this way.
You can't keep this drinking up.
I love you but you're hurting me.
I can't stand it when you're drunk.
You're too irresponsible and angry.
Though you'd never lay a hand on me,
I still fear you when you're angry.

Best Present EverA/N: Beware! First ever James/Lily fic.Best Present Ever4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Word Count: 1,100
It was early Christmas day when Lily woke up. The first thing that came to the red head's mind was that it was nice to be home with her mum and dad. Her second thought - albeit she would never tell anyone - was wondering what James had gotten for her.
Surprisingly, since the beginning of their seventh year, the arrogant boy had changed his ways enough for her to finally get to know him. In fact, they'd gotten so close that she was even considering saying yes the next time he asked her out. If he ever asked her out again.
She'd noticed that he hadn't asked her on a date since the beginning of the year.
Lily got out of her bed quietly, hoping to not wake her parents, and made her way to the living room where the presents were waiting under the tree.
The pile was a little smaller than it had been previous years, seeing as Petunia was now living with her boyfriend. Lily was pleasantly surprised to see there was actually a pres

I feel like I've awakened from a comatose state
And the world has gone on without me.
I stretch my legs and take a walk outside
And for the very first time I see:
A strange kind of beauty, that is utterly alluring
It calls out to my spirit with the gentlest of cries.
I'm afraid to admit, for it was rather unmanly,
That I left with tears in my eyes...
I can't imagine how I could have forgotten
The very way that I used to walk...
I remember now my habitual actions
And I've even learned to talk!
"Arrr me hearties, good day to ya all
It be a fine day ta sail on tha sea
And if we find a plethora o' treasure;
Then yer drinks are all on me!"
I must admit it that brought me a smile
To be speaking my native brogue.
It reminded me that a dashing man
Should always be a playful rouge.
But that aside I'm feeling better
For now my mind has found its peace.
A comforting sense of order and structure
It's almost as rare as the golden fleece.

"Oi! Padfoot. Quiet we can't take any changes." He whispered. His brown eyes flashed to meet his mate's Grey eyes. He put his broom in it's proper place and moved to allow Sirius to do the same thing. "Would you like to do the honors Padfoot?" James asked holding out a plain piece of parchment. Sirius whipped out his wand and placed it on the parchment. "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." He said smugly. James smirked. As the word appeared he opened the map. Sirius went and got the cloak from it's hiding place. "Minerva seems to be up and about." James commented as he looked for the best possible root to get back to the Gryffindor common room.
