I am dying.
I wonder if Bruce will get here in time?
I hear another bone crack, but I can't feel it anymore.
I see the Jokers smile, and I smile right back.
I pretend I'm not scared.
I want to live.
I was Jason Todd.
I am dead.
I wonder if Bruce has avenged me yet?
I touch my wounds.
I feel nothing.
I wait in the dark.
I was Jason Todd
I am not dead anymore.
I wonder, did I really mean that little to Bruce?
I cry out in anger.
I try to understand why he would not avenge me.
I understand nothing.
I was Robin.
I am living.
I wonder if I even have a purpose?
I dream of being the better Batman.
I try to show them I'm right.
I hope someday they will understand me.
I am Red Hood.
I am angry.
I wonder how many lives I've taken?
I say I am right.
I will protect Gotham.
I will prove them wrong.
Death by IgnoranceDeath truly comes to those who are shunnedDeath by Ignorance3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Lying, restless, in societal sleep
Death comes truly and not as a stun;
And with this death, nobody weeps.
Death comes truly to those forgotten
Lost between memory and care
Death comes truly to those begotten
In hatred's burning snare.
But above these both, Death comes the most-
And it comes so without warning;
To the rejects and outcast, it comes as a ghost,
To welcome their day each morning.

For who I was
Not for who you thought I could be
For the good I did
Not for the pain I caused you all
For the times I smiled
Not for the days of misery
For the fights I won
Not for the times I was a failure
For the good memories
Not for the shit I started
For being a friend you loved
Not for being a waste of space
And if you can't remember me for that
Just don't remember me at all
Heaven's EyesSights that can devour a person wholeHeaven's Eyes4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Eyes, the gateway to Heaven's soul
When you look into them, you see nothing but an angel's face
So alarming it could send you to that special place
The place where you imagine, discover and dream
Or the place where the monster lurks and you scream
There are some eyes you never will forget
They'll leave you scared and full of regret
Other's will mesmerize you
The power only eyes can do
Love isn't always black and blue
Our actions speak louder than we do
It's not always about the touch we feel
Give it time, wounds will heal
Gentle eyes that kill with kindness
While monster's are left in the blindness
Angel eyes with a precious face
Heaven's gates are open with her grace

I am a boy
I wonder what bad guys we'll catch today?
I hear the Batmobile roar to life and I hurry to get in
I see Bruce sitting tall and strong in the drivers seat
I pretend I'm just like him
I want to be a man too
I am Robin
I am a team member
I wonder if I can lead my friends well
I dream if being the leader; no longer a sidekick
I try to prove myself, and take care of my friends
I hope I'll be a man soon
I was Robin
I am Nightwing
I wonder how Bruce could have replaced me so easily
I touch old costume
I feel angry and betrayed
I am hurt
I am Nightwing
I am a brother now
I wonder if I'll really be able to help him
I cry when he cries, I laugh what he laughs
I try to be what Bruce can't
I understand he tries, but children need more
I needed more
I will give them, what I did not get
I am Batman
I am a leader of my family
I wonder if I'll ever be able to fill his shoes...er cowl
I say, with my family behind me, we can
We will protect Gotham
And I will lead them

That never ends
Alone in this place
I am condemned
Cursed to this life
Which has no plan
The pain in my heart
can no more expand
Watching and waiting
Just wishing to die
My soul is aching
My dreams cannot fly
I'm a person with talent,
A future to uphold,
But those are just many
Lies I have been told
I feel like I'm walking,
But not going any where
There is plenty of time,
But not one second to spare
Why am I still living?
What do I expect?
That an angel will come down
And save me from this wreck!?
Yet...there must be a small
Hope hiding inside,
Because surely I would
Have already died
How will I find this
Hope I seek?
When everything I hold
is so dark and so bleak
This must be the treasure
I've been waiting to find.
I cannot wait until the day
I will claim it as mine!
Hopefully, it's truth
will not stand to wait,
Because too soon,
Will be too late.

Never Let GoNever Let GoNever Let Go4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I will never let you go;
I need you in my life,
Then don't let go
But you have to do the same,
Hold me in your arms,
And never let me go,
Hold me ever so close
So our souls can become as one,
I won't let you go,
No matter what happens,
No matter what comes,
I will hold you in my arms,
and face the battles as one,
As long as you're by my side,
I know I can face all that comes my way,
Knowing your arms are around me
gives me strength that I need,
And if I stumble and I shall fall,
I know you will be there to pick me up
Catching me in your arms,
Wiping away my tears,
Helping me to see it through.
I won't let you fall
Never leave me
And I shall never leave you
No matter what comes
I will always be there in your arms
Holding on ever so tightly
For in my soul, that is where I belong

I want to tell you that you are beautiful
But I don't merely want these words heard
I want them felt by you
Because you should feel as beautiful as you are
It's not just your eyes that make you beautiful
(though they seem to always invite my awe-struck gaze)
And it's not just your hair
(though the strokes of light in each strand illuminate everything around you)
And it's not just your smile
(though it reminds me to enjoy life instead of focusing on the struggles it brings)
And it's not just your voice
(which will always,
always sweep me away from my sorrows
and draw me closer to an unexplainable happiness)
Or even your hands
(though they sing my tension to sleep when I get to hold them)
It's your heart...what I feel from your heart is what makes you beautiful in my soul.
And you are so,

Things like - the image of your beauty
will press in on the eyelids of men
your departure from this lifetime.
Things like - you make me feel like being myself
is not just acceptable but it is wonderful!
That I, being the only me I could ever possibly be,
is proof positive of a chaotic world
creating love and life and joy -
and that no one else but me
could make you smile the way you do.
Things like - I don't need you.
If you were gone I could breathe,
I could pump blood,
I could spit
I could do anything I wanted to -
but I would not want to.
I wouldn't want to do anything
without you by my side.
Things like - I'm always here for you,
because I prioritise the things that matter to me
and you are at the top

because I had to come save you
from the fog in your heart - and I lost my job - fuck it.
I'll still come.

A cruel, mocking voice emanated from two bright yellow spots on the other side of the dark room, Thats what you said the last ten times, Harley. But dont worry, it wont happen again.

His name is Gerard. We had fallen head over heels for each other about four months ago. About two weeks ago we realized that we had to go our separate ways. He was going to an art school in New York and I was going to England for a month to help my sick Aunt. We decided we might get back together after it was all over but nothing was solid.

The next morning when I awoke, even after a full night of sleep, I was tired. I rolled out of bed and put my feet on my dark green rug, it was a worn rug that felt thin and frail under my feet. I stretched, my arms reaching high over my head. I yawned and scratch my tummy. Slightly smiling as I remembered the little one growing deep inside. But my smile soon faded, thinking of the things Gerard had said to me. Not really thinking of them just not being able to push them out of my mind. I checked my cell phone, hope fluttering inside me, tickling my belly. No missed calls. I instantly frowned. He had given up and now wanted nothing to do with me. I forced back tears and arouse from my bed. I determined to not waste anytime worrying about something I couldn't change, or at least pushing it to the back of my mind, for now.

I know thy virtues, beauty fair!
Thy maidenhead reserved;
For one who proves unto yourself
That it is well deserved;
Thy husband shall that fellow be;
My torture like a knife,
For thou art pure like winter snow,
And ne'er shalt be my wife.

I sat on the hospital bed in nothing but a hospital gown. Both of my hands folded in my lap, my legs together tight. I just wanted to pretend I wasnt here. I was blocking my thoughts of Gerard; I didnt want to start crying again. I had basically sobbed the whole walk over. Now was not the time or place to lose it.
After a good ten minutes my doctor walked in. He was fairly tall with some noticeable muscle, dark haired, and handsome, very handsome. I felt awkward in my tiny robe. Since this was a womens clinic I was in a very tiny, very pink, robe. He smiled at me warmly, Well Mr. Iero I hear youre having some

Look at the wounds to know, where i've been
Throwing me against, my own walls
But I've learned to fly, when i fall
And I know my scars are only on the surface
And I know that I, I, I am not worthless
No matter how they break me, i'm unbreakable
No matter how they hurt me, i'm invincible
You know a heart
Keeps on bleeding
When it breaks it goes on beating
I, I'll keep on keeping on
'Cause my scars prove you, wrong.
Xion's storyAs I faded I felt as if all the life and warmth inside of me was beginning to freeze and shatter. I closed my eyes as the darkness overwhelmed me, I knew i was over. Goodbye Roxas. Goodbye Axel, you've been good friends. I thought to myself. I lay in the darkness, silence bit away at my mind bit by bit.

It felt like hours I had been led there in the darkness as if i'd been floating through limbo, when i heard the voice. A voice so gentle and kind, it sparked a memory, a girl, much like me. There was something about her, a connection. I felt soft fingers tenderly squeeze my hand.
"Xion," she whispered. "Wake up." Her voice echoed like an angels and then wavered slightly.
"Vexen, she isn't waking did something go wrong? You said we could save her." From a distance I heard a masculine voice with a somewhat posh accent to it.
