I am a disappointment to my parents.
I am a thing to be sold for profit.
I am property to a stranger.
I am a body used for the pleasure of men.
I am a slave to my promised husband.
These are the only things I'm allowed to say.
If I say anything else I will be punished.
I shall face a punishment.
Several that no one should be allowed to face.
I fear all of it.
But sadly, it would be nothing new.
I shall be punished for simply taking a breath.
I wish to take my final one.
I "belong" in the kitchen, after all.
I have possession of the knife.
This decision shall finally be mine.
My fear melts away, and my neck turns cold.
I shall take my freedom...
Yes, I have taken it.
However, it was not by means of bloodshed.
It was not by means of "relief."
It was by means of struggle.
It was by by means of the impossible.
No longer shall I hide my face behind blu

I’m that kid that everyone stares at on the street.
I’m that person that gets the awful messages on Facebook.
I’m the one that has been told “God hates you.”
You know me.
Even if you’ve never met me, I’m known worldwide.
It never ends.
But I own a bold face.
When they say “God hates you”
I say “Why am I here, then?”
They shut up.
But sometimes it gets to me.
There are times when the taunting…
Make me miserable.
I go to her.
She’s the one that tells me
“It’ll be alright.”
The one that hugs me and loves me.
No matter what.
I hear it’s not just me.
I heard that the same story goes for
That boy on the other side of town.
But his boyfriend left him
In fear of being outed.
But not just him.

She’s called a slut.

But if that is true,
then why do we trust them

Allowed them to live freely,

Trust them to follow our guidance
or become the new guidance to follow?
We give them the world

Though we were once the youth that created
the way of the world.
Ignorance is bliss,
But blissful youth is not ignorant.

once you’ve done it once or twice.
I am the pirate that steals no gold.
I don’t steal jewels, or food, or any material thing.
No, what I steal is young women’s hearts.
I take them, keep them, and soon, toss them away.
They fall to my every need
and are used as pretty little dolls.
They fall for my charms and good looks.
My smooth voice.
My sweet words.
They can’t see that I’m the dreaded pirate they’ve heard of.
Soon, their hearts are mine to play with.
Their bodies are mine to enjoy.
But I get bored easily
and I leave them like that.
Hm? What’s that?
Another pretty lass?
Big eyes, awkward posture, screaming innocence.
Oh! I’ve found my next toy!
That pretty lady blushes and says no,
but I keep pursuing.
Not taken, pure, and very gullible.

This girl, it seems, is different.
She took longer than the rest to get

Len x Yowane Haku-Love of Evil Chapter 1Everyone knows the tale of the tyrannical Princess Riliane. The stories are known throughout the world, and equally known is her brother and servant named Allen. However, few know the story of Allen's, or "Len's," journey to the Yellow Country. No one knows the journey that he took through the Green Country,nor do they know his shared story with the fair Haku, and the trials that they faced together...Len x Yowane Haku-Love of Evil Chapter 13 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Len was finally in the Country of Green: the neighboring country of the Country of Yellow, where he could finally reunite with his twin sister. He lost count of how many times he had been rejected, had the door slammed in his face, and slapped. He was just ready to give up when…
"Please let me go!" Len turned to see two teal-haired boys pushing around a girl with white hair and a purple and black bow tying it back. Len couldn't see her face, but he was sure she was crying. "Please-just please let me go! I've never done anything to you!" "Freaks like you give our dear countr

That’s the first thing that Len thought when that rushing feeling finally stopped.
The rush that Len got from travelling through time-or light-lasted for a few minutes before he seemed to stop suddenly. He also felt like something was in his arms. And his legs. Correction…his entire body.
Then he suddenly heard a voice. “Are you awake?”
The voice sounded extremely familiar. It was a man’s voice, that was for sure. “Allen? Are you awake?” The man asked again.
Len slowly allowed his eyes to open, feeling curiosity and suspense towards the voice. Perhaps this was an angel helping him to find his way. Then finally, finally, he could see the man calling him. He saw a man with brown hair and glasses, and though he was wearing white, Len could tell that he was no angel. After a few seconds, the blonde could recall where he had seen such a face before. Kiyoteru, Len thought.
Keel was wearing a long white coat with a black

It had been a week since Len had left, and Haku was still trying to leave him in the past and move on. Was it normal? Haku had heard of people that never got over the loss of a loved one. How long would it take for her? She wasn’t trying to forget Len; she wanted to be alright without him. But no matter how much she tried, Haku was slipping back into her old habits. She regretted living, often muttering, “I’m so sorry for being alive.” Haku was uncomfortable going outside, despite the villagers no longer abusing her.
Haku felt the ponytail holder that held back her long, white hair. Several of the petals had already fallen off, and Haku put the fallen petals in a small jar. “Len…” Haku secretly wanted to go to the Yellow Country. It was very diverse there, and someone like her could live in peace there. But there was a connection to this place. Haku couldn’t leave this place behind because her paren

Feel it cutting into me, the doubting, painful, knife
Feel it deepening the rift, finally hit just right
Couldn't take the love I had, so weak and burning low
But it grew into a weapon, only hurting me, this I know...
So good with numbers; science, math I like
But I'm terrible at English,so I despise
This part of me that wants a simple "right or wrong"
And I feel that everything I choose will always be false

Can you even stop the rope from hanging him by his neck?

She Can Sense HimShe could see him.She Can Sense Him2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Fakir was Duck’s sun, as Duck was Fakir’s. Those smiles of his reserved just for her made her heart beat faster every time. She was so happy that she was the reason for those smiles, and that she could see them.
She could feel him.
Fakir usually didn’t like people touching him, but he allowed Duck to do just that. They hugged, they kissed; they needed each other, like a simple touch kept them both alive. Duck loved that about him.
She could smell him.
If told to the average person, that would sound strange, but it was true. Duck recognized the smell of her husband, though she could never place what it smelled like. All it smelled like was Fakir, making him unique.
She could hear him.
Whenever Duck heard that wonderful voice call her name or laugh with their children, Duck couldn’t help but smile. She couldn’t believe that only years before, they were both on the edge of hating each other.
She could taste him.
Fakir was the first and only

Stare across the lawn
Of cherry blossom raining down
A hiding rose from dawn
From the ease and still
Breath and calm can be
Clear without the rain
Coloured rose and green
I am by myself
Halves apart from seam
Cold and broken wide
As my embrace can be
Wait for coming change
Air to turn to warm
Remembering the way
I held so close your form
Weathered days obscured from me
Time taken its toll
The voice behind intentions speak
Slow piercing past the wool
Lean against my mind
As fallen from its rise
Past obscured beneath
Cherry blossom skies

Excitement in her eyes,
Unaware that she one day
Will tell rumors and lies.
In her eyes a brand new friend
Made of felt and plush.
Little does she know her friend
Will witness dreams she’ll crush.
Smiling with teeth white and pure
Her lips turned upward still,
She hasn’t even learned yet to scowl
At this world’s feigned free will.
Staring up with hope-filled eyes
She hopes to become me,
But I wish I could turn back time
Not knowing the sins I’d see.
She grabs at me with small, small hands
Excitement in her eyes,
Unaware that she one day
Will tell rumors and lies.

Len x Yowane Haku-Love of Evil Chapter 3Len's room was ready within two days. It took a week for Len to remember he was staying with Haku. It took a month for the villagers to learn about Len. People had noticed that every time somebody bullied the village outcast, something was flung at them or they were scared silly. One time, a group even fell into a shallow pit hours after the abuse. All knowledge of the blonde's existence was in Haku's head. That is, until about a month later.Len x Yowane Haku-Love of Evil Chapter 33 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Very few harassed the white-haired girl, but there came a day when a whole group of four ganged up on her. The old routine went on. They pushed her down, spat at her, stole the basket she was carrying, and wound up with mud in their faces. Len could barely keep himself from laughing every time. Then he was caught. He was secretly using the wind to his advantage-blowing red dust in the green-haired teens' faces when he felt a laugh coming on. An uncontrollable laugh. So uncontrollable, he had to get out of there fast.
Len started to shake from sile

He, with his black gloves and bone-white face,
extended his hand to the poor soul that was me.
And with a thin smile he told me of our unity,
that we would never part after our wedding ended.
Surrounded by roses kissed by the color black,
an altar stood in front of us, a book already opened.
He signed his name with no hesitation, then looked at me,
placing the sacred pen in my hand to write.
As I began to write my name and seal my vow,
a force stronger than I pulled me away from the altar.
I lay in a room of white, a rhythmic, high beat to my side,
and I know our vows have been postponed for another day.
I will see you again, the handsome Darkness.

Haku jumped at the question. What would she say? That did sound wrong. "You're just the first company I've had in a long time…I'm sorry. I'm being selfish." Haku turned away from Len and stared at the ground. Len stared at her back, surprised. The first company in a long time?
"Anyway, I have to go to the marketplace. You'll probably be gone by the time I get back. Thank you. For the company. I…goodbye." Haku walked out the door. Len stared at the doorframe for a while, and then grabbed the pack that Haku offered him. It was certainly better than trying to carry everything at once.

What makes me want to reach out to him
And cling to him and pull him away with me?
What is this need
To make that other girl disappear?
Is it madness?
What is this hatred
That burns inside me towards her
But mostly at myself?
What is this urge
To run up to him
And scream "I love you" like I never could before?
What is this voice
That calls me a coward
And says that I'm too late?
What is this pain
That makes me want to change myself
And make him look my way?
What is this fear
That makes me hide and watch him
Smiling at her without him knowing?
What is this feeling?
It's the worst one I've ever felt.

Her hair tangled.
She's a mess, some would say.
But at least her heart is pure.
His wrists covered in scars,
His stomach roaring with hunger.
He's damaged, some would say.
But at least his love is whole.
Her breathing is heavy,
And her skin is pale.
She's dying, some would say.
But at least she knows how to live.
At least a woman without a house
Knows how to make a home.
Hand her a loaf of bread,
And she won't devour it,
Because she knows how to treasure
The beauty in life.
At least a boy without a smile
Knows how to hold on,
Longer than someone who's never fallen,
And never dared to learn
How to fly.
At least a girl in the mobile chair
Knows how to capture a moment,
Because she can't quite be sure
How many moments really are
At least someone with so little
Because when you have so much...
You only have so little.
