You took my hand to dance
I tried to fight, but you promised it would be okay
You took my hand to dance
And you took me away
Your smile stole my heart
Your eyes stole my soul
Your touch made me whole
You took my hand to dance
And promised it would be okay
I danced all night long
And it was beautiful

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

Becoming infested in this sickness of silence
Finally broke down and screamed out in violence
Take it all back and pretend it never happened

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 World3 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 Decay3 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

Fall the sands of time.
Let the years like the gears
Of a clock unwind
In your mind walk through time
Back to better days.
Memories, like a dream,
Wash your tears away.
Like a star in the sky darkness can't reach you.
Light the night, joy is light 'til the new dawn.
Cast away your old face
Full of gloom and spite.
With this mask I will ask
To borrow your light.

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.

Yes sir, he is clinging to insanity.
He remembers all the things he said, profanity.
Bare the shame on his naked old humanity.
He is the doll claiming love for his vanity-
When he woke up, desire!
He made a move like fire.
His whispers; a liar,
His heart snaps, like wire!
But what are you thinking of this man as I make him out?
Is it an image or a type that you seem to tout.
was it all his fault with no one else to blame,
Or were there cracks in the story that they both will claim-
Spit that and live that,
Hate when you love that!
You rip that and tear that,
Scream like you know that!
Stop for a moment and just listen to this silent cry,
Time has stopped now for both of us to say goodbye.
Both turning on these clocks, living lies that have stopped;
And when the love turns to ash, let the gloves be dropped...

The Night They DiedJames's Point of ViewThe Night They Died5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was Halloween night. Every now and again, the doorbell would ring and Lily would answer it, exclaim over the Muggle children's costumes and hand out sweets. I was sitting in the living room with Harry. Lily had dressed him in blue pyjamas with feet in them and he looked absolutely adorable. His black hair, untidy like mine, fell onto his forehead and his green eyes sparkled with mischief and fun as he tried to grab the coloured smoke I had conjured from the tip of my wand to amuse him. It was certainly working. Harry had a determined expression on his face as he tried and failed to catch the smoke in his tiny hands. I smiled fondly at him and my mind began to wander.
I grinned as I thought of the present Sirius had sent Harry for his first birthday, three months ago. He had sent him a toy broomstick and of course, Harry had loved it and had proved to be a natural. Lily had been horrified at first. She was afraid that Harry would fall of the broom and hurt himse

Hermione was spending every spare waking minute she had in the library. Flicking through old, dusty books had always seemed to calm her, even as a child. But the other reason for her hiding between the bookshelves was that she knew in her heart and soul that Ron wasn't going to come venturing down there anytime soon.
Hermione was deep in her Charms book, but she was only skimming over the lines, barely taking in the words. Her time spent in the library was not focused on her study, but more so on the flashbacks that Hermione was continuously having, which in the most, was just the same ones, repeated over and over, though each time they started and ended in the different places.
As much as Hermione hated to admit it, she looked forward to these lapses in her concentration and at times wished for t

Remnants of the past still move today
Endless sorrow dashes through the heart
Mastermind of terror and death gone by May
Evil still lingers to tear happiness apart
Many mourn for those who fell to the storm
But fear still lingers through the hearts as one
Empire's brain begins to chaotically transform
Reflecting the memories that will never be gone
The light still shine in the cloudy night
How Mother Mary speaks to let it be
Existing forever the light shines bright
Down to the seed who will rise as a tree
Always remember what happened here
You must never forget the lives lost so dear
