At The Other End of the BulletThey say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. Well, that didn't really happen to me. I remember it hurting; a searing pain in the back of my mind, and then it was all over...At The Other End of the Bullet6 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I found myself floating, drifting high above the battlefield. My feet touched something that felt like an invisible glass floor, and soon I found that I was able to stand on it. It took awhile to get over my fear of heights, but once I did; I opened my eyes and just, watched, as the entire world carried on.
Funnily enough, I didn't feel much of anything at the time. I guess they tend to play it up in the movies. They always show that people remain angry, that people have feelings of wanting to do something or to accomplish something. But once you're gone, you don't actually feel much of that.
Instead, I remember being calm. I was very calm after that final moment. I would poke my head every now and again, thinking that the skin would feel raw, but other than that; I was alright. I

“That’s a revelation.”
“No. Seriously. I have issues.”
“All right. I’ll bite. What’s going on?”
“I don’t think I’m ever going to find someone who’ll love me.”
“What? Why're you looking at me like that?”
“You aren’t serious, right?”
“I am glad my pain makes you so incredulous.”
“All right, let me try this again. If you can't find someone who loves you, who am I to you?”
“Don’t answer that. That was rhetorical. I am the girl who spends hours huddled in a corner of a library, trying to find what you love the most about Marlowe, just so I can write you a poem worthy of Shakespeare. I’ve made books my lovers, hours my enemies and you the only story.”
“You do that for-”

Sticks and Stones
Sticks and stones will break my bones,
But words will slowly kill me
Hurricanes will break my home,
But storms will never kill me
Death is not an experience,
we can wait for in life*
Guns will be the death of me,
If I pull the trigger
Cuts from Knives will make me bleed,
But bandages will heal them
Emotions though can cut deeper,
Hearts will never heal.
Bombs will shatter my city,
love will shatter life
Hate will destroy this world,
Friends the only shelter **
The world will be left broken,
My words will describe it
Feedback is appreciated
But only if you want to
I Will Not Be HypnotizedI will not be hypnotized.I Will Not Be Hypnotized6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I will not be controlled. I will not be owned, I will not be confused. My mind will stay clear and strong, and I will remain my own man.
Your colored lights will not dazzle me. Your loud voices will not command me. Your images will not trick me, destroy me, and rule my mind. Crack into my skull and just try to take a hold on it, there is no grasp for you to find.
I will remain my own man, and I will not be owned.
Because I will not be hypnotized.
I will not be pressured.
I will not be forced, I will not be tricked.
I will not listen to the voices of the multitudes. Two and two is four, one and one is two. A thousand voices will implore my obedience and they will be ignored. I know what is right, and I will not back down. With a hundred million feet marching towards darkness, I will turn toward the light.
I do not care about numbers, numbers do not equal right. I will not disappear into the group, and I will not follow the blinded crowds.
Because I will not be

You are so much more powerful than the cuts on your arm,
And so much better than your eating disorder.
So much more than your scars.
Please look me in the eyes,
And show me your wounds,
Whether they be on your forearm,
Or your heart.
Have you been skipping meals?
Have you been cutting?
Well, here’s something for you to try.
Think one thing,
Just one thing,
Just remember to prove to the world,
Are stronger than

B-K baby, have it yo way baby
Ask P. Diddy, C-Lo, and Justin B
What they got in common aint hard to see
We're gonna start this song, in 1-2-3
I just hate rap, my brother
-can't stand it-
C'mon, why not sing about yo mother?
Why not rap about how girls are a gift to this earth?
And not somethin' with replaceable worth?
You men out here in the club,
you don't see 'er like that
you see her as somethin' to tap
and your songs just resonate with that.
And what is it now with all this violence
Ever heard of turning the other cheek with compliance?
Put away your knife and your gun
The world's messed up enough without killin someone
No man, don't try to deny it
'Come on baby it's fun, just try it'
Settin' her on the road to destruction, that's the turn out

We're your friends
And we know you have asthma
And we think it's time you got over it.
Your cerebral palsy is stupid
Why don't you just suck it up
Other people have it worse than you.
You don't really have HIV
You just think you do
If you stop thinking about it, it'll go away.
We've been talking about it
And we think that you're faking your cancer
Stop trying to get attention.
You can't do any of that?
Then stop telling me to do the same about my depression.

i wish i was a human being

i wish we would stop hating ourselves.
i wish girls were allowed to say no

i wish boys were allowed to cry

"Matt? Matt where are you?" A high pitched, girly voice called through the grassy green meadow. Strong winds swept across the grassland. Soft colored daisies floated softly against the breeze. The sun and the soft blue sky clashed together perfectly. The girl, ignoring this, started to run across the plain, grasses sweeping at her feet. Sloshing through a fast moving river, the girl jumped and grabbed an unsuspecting boy. "Matt!"
Matt never saw it coming. He toppled down onto the ground fast. The girl laughed and jumped into his arms. "Oh you silly boy." She giggled
Matt was shocked. "Cat? Is that you?"
The girl giggled. "Of course it is silly! Who else could it be?"
"But.......but I thought you were dead!!"
"Love is eternal, as long as you are loved you will be loved back! Well.....you do love me don't you?"
"With all my heart and more." Matt said smiling. "Oh Cat I missed you." He whispered, kissing her.
"I missed you too." Cat whispered back, snuggling up in his ar

The last one broke after Matt shoved his sword in it on "accident" and nearly blew up the entire house when he did so. Evidently it was all "Lance's fault" for creating such a "dangerous" weapon.

'It's 3:00.' Lance told himself. 'I should probably get some sleep.' But he was too excited, as he had just found another element that could act as fire and not blow up when stabbed. Now he had to find a way to get some without dying.
BEEP,BEEP, BEEP. An annoyingly loud alarm sounded randomly. Annoyed, Lance turned to find the source of this sound so he could turn it off. After rummaging around some boxes of scrap metal, he found it. His catastrophe watch was signaling danger. Running his hand through his messy dark brown hair, he hit the power switch. Immediately
