into my bones, I heard the
trees giggle to themselves:
"We're going to make all
the leaves change color,
pin them along the sidewalk
for you to follow and we'll
wreathe them in your hair.
You will be our daughter."
You folded apples into my smile,
making it crisp, but sweet. I
took the time to thank you by
shrugging off my sweater and
giving it to you. A daughter
of the trees, braided with their
leaves, needs no protection
from the elements that embrace her.
"Your leaf diadem suits you,
daughter," they say as
their branches weave between
gusts of wind. For once,
I believe them.

Nico strode down the hallway, arms folded across his chest even as he gnawed fretfully at his lip. A frown was etched deep across his brow as he assimilated the information he just gathered by slinking around the school in the shadows.
There's definitely something fishy happening, Nico mused, absent-mindedly ducking out of the way of the other students wandering along the corridor. It stinks of Eau de Home Sweet Home so heavily it's not even funny. It's a wonder the normal students haven't picked up on the smell yet. Dad's probably right it has to be the work of one of Hell's creatures. Maybe one of them escaped? Man, somebody should put all those animals in enclosures and sell tickets. 'Zoo of the Undead'!

A repulsive smell rose up from the marsh through the humid air, accompanied by the sound of goopy, almost gelatinous bubbles popping with a squelch and a faint sulfuric aroma to add to the decaying stench of the swamp, in no way helping Adrielle's urge to run as fast as possible away from it.
The small group stood at the shore, enveloped in dense, thick fog, she with her hands clasped tightly to her mouth, and he with his resting on the hilt of his sword. The canines at their feet were eying the mire; Ansia with a cautious expression, as reluctant as her mistress to enter it, and Knofos with a somewhat irritated look in his blood red eyes as he sat obediently at his master's side. He looked over at the small white othrin, who was wrinkling her black nose at the scummy water. He glanced up at Daemon, and they exchanged a short, amused look at the reactions of the females in their charge.
"There's not a chance I'm touching that, Daemon." Adrielle stated, crossing her a

Just then the flap input diverged again, to let a giggling ogre leading a girl in the tent, pulling on the chain that was tied around her neck and hands. She was a young girl, slight and infinitely terrified. She was dressed in peasant clothes, now torn and broken, stained with blood, dirt and mud.
Even the little face with regular features and a simple beauty, marred by a few scrapes and bruises, was stained by patches of thickened sludge as well as long and wavy blonde hair, completely disheveled. On the reddened cheeks she had the furrow that the tears were scored between the dirt and big brown eyes were inflamed and swollen from too much crying. The girl was carried away helpless, exhausted, as if she had been surrendered to her fate.
She watched horrified the inside of the tent and the elf who was turned back, then she noticed two tall hooded silhouettes that were expectingto be able to quit.
In seeing them, she was plucked by a sudden and instinctive terror, that froze her.

My First Fanfic

Sonic the Hedgehog ran very quickly down the hall to where the fire was coming from. While running he ducked into a rolling spin and made a sound like "@@@@@@@!" so he could dodge the fireball lasers.
At the top of the staircase he stood up and shouted at the top of the staircase "Sephiroth!" The man with long hair turned slowly and with a flash of his sword removed Sonic's nipples from his body.
"OUCH that hurts!1" cried Sonic, hurting. "Looks like I will need the power of the CHAOS CRYSTAL for this opponent!" and he raised up a handful of glowing gems.
The light from the jewels summoned all the legendary pokemon in the world together and they fused together into a Pyschic Ghost Dragon Pokemon. "LEAVE THIS TO ME, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG!" it said in the voice a thousand monsters, and shot a giant Hadouken at Sephiroth.
Sephiroth bounced it back with a spin of his blade, and it hit the Psy-Gho-Dra-Mon in the face, crashing him to the floor and half-crushing

I couldn't see the consequences-
As I tried to trust my heart
I just couldn't resist-
The blind love that ceased my wars
Helping me let go of the struggles-
That I foolishly held in my hands
I freed the thoughts that quarreled-
Tears fell in order for me to stand
Truth can be the worst enemy
Lies can be the strongest ally
Harmony isn't immune to tragedy
Because you made a myth out of your apparent humanity
Mistakes can never be renamed! / Scars can never be erased!
Compassion is used as bait! / Two sides to every face!
A piece of peace is caged! / Watch the bridge burn away!
I'll desecrate the meaning of “passion”
You redefined my every moral
There will be no hesitation
I won't need anyone -anymore-
I ignored the risks-
Of handing over my hope
Killed by a kiss-
Turning my world to stone
I believed in your deceit-
And I fell too hard
My mind endlessly screams-
Locus SolusI sometimes recall a particular morning from childhood. I was in my grandparents' home - a big house, with large empty walls and high ceiling. It was a lazy winter morning. The sun was coming shyly through the shades. A heavy silence all around. I did not dare to move in my bed, afraid that I'd somehow ruin that order of the world. In all that stillness I suddenly noticed a small spider crawling on a wall. I thought it was cute for some time, until the immensity of that empty wall hit me like a hammer. The slowly advancing spider had walked alone up to that point and it still had a lot of empty ground to cover. I whispered "The world is a lonely place, little spider". And I cried for him. But the little spider didn't even notice me. And that, in turn, made me feel alone.Locus Solus3 years ago in Emotional More Like This

I can't contain the pain.
I need the bite of blade,
need to see the blood.
Trapped inside my head,
screaming never stops.
I need to get away.
Can't escape myself.
I find me wherever I hide.
I can't keep it in.
I can't let it out.
Letting go doesn't grant release.
My monsters hold me down,
hold me back,
lock me away.
I can't come back.
Trembling with emotion,
I reach desperately.
Reach for the unknown.
Even the silent air can't quell my screaming.
Shatter all my shackles,
shatter all my chains.
Break the doors and walls apart.
I'll release my demons.
All I need to do is let everything out.
Every last vanished self,
all my shadows, fears, and my memories.
If I could break the restraints,
the social repercussions,
I'd scream out loud.
Shattering all the windows,
I'd break every single glass.
Desperate to find what I have lost,
I know I will never have it again.
I will never be free of what I have become.

It has come to our attention
this is the twenty-third rejection
of work you have submitted to our site.
We don't wish to be alarming
and we hope this sounds disarming,
but your use of metaphor is somewhat trite.
We somewhat like the concept
(the execution is inept)
besides, your work just does not meet our theme.
You need to have more adjectives
and words like gloam and mucilage,
and phrases that go along in kind.
Please keep the imagery obscure -
the reader never should be sure
just what it is the author has in mind.
Pick a structure we all can stand -
we find your rhythm rather bland
and no deep meaning can the reader find.
So in short, we will be leaving -
please consider basket weaving
or perhaps take up bowling as a sport.
Or perhaps try stamp collecting
for your work we are rejecting.
Poetry should be your last resort...

In this little fickle minded shell of a room,
Death at my door and the screaming from my wounds,
Peace, never mongered any longer in me,
Hate! It never bothered to leave,
See my eyes, and you watch me bleed,
Silent angel of apathy,
Rest your eyes and sleep in me,
It shall all be over,
If alone will you wallow in your pity,
If alive, will you swallow this pill?
If in me, would you ever feel safe? No. Just dead.
I hate you and you hate me,
Rhyming rage and sodomy!
Never left for, never seen,
Bottle all this up in me,
Release, release, release!
See my eyes, black as coal,
Angels cry like you will never know,
Silent sleep, Angel of Apathy,
In my hate, may you find some peace...

Your surroundings radiate an ominous feeling. The forest's trees leer at you, you feel as if they're about to engulf you, their long twisted branches grasping for the car.

I never meant to fall apart
Or tear you down with me
There's no more darkness in the light
No more time left to fight;
It's time to say goodbye.

The breath of heaven from hidden blooms,
The fates are weaving on their loom,
The mysteries, for you and I.
Warm summer night all deepened dark,
Gives shelter to a secret lore,
While over in the far north east
Shines the light of coming day.
And in this hallowed glade we stay,
For we must see the rising Sun in gladness,
Through wooded paths of morning mist.
My friend, you will forget a while,
Then waken from your modern dream.
I will still remember you,
The Lady of the glade.
If we once loved, in that secret dell,
Then we once loved as friends,
And friends we are, and friends will be,
Not stinting, always meeting,
In summer's hazy play.
And as Autumn unpins her russet hair,
My friend, will you always stay?

My papa stood dazed for a moment, dust billowing at his legs, his eyes teetering along the field. It wasn't until later that evening he told me he hadn't understood what I had seen. What he had seen.
With grass tickling the backsides of my legs, I bounded toward the boy, "What are you doing? Are you okay?"
As I approached him, I felt his skittish eyes rake across my every movement. With his ten-year-old arms slung inside the gaping maw of a fence and darkened feathers pasted along the creases of his face; he looked squarely at me. I could hear his bird-bones quaking at my voice, he pushed harder against the fence. I winced for him.

And I realize now that everything I always saw as good hope
Everything I saw as a sign for my life to turn around
Immediately hurt me
I don't understand the emotion of anger
