Bashings of a FandomYou hear it all the time,
They are insane
Why do they like even that stuff?
Judge you on what you like,
Look at their shirt
Oh it's one of them
Those fans they are so,
Nerds with no life
Have no taste
Well maybe you,
Need to think
This is just one part of us
That we can act sane
That we do have friends
That we have a life
That we aren't all nerds
That this connects us to others
That is what keeps us smiling
That this is part of what keeps us sane
That this helps us to keep getting up in the morning
And what about you?
Can you take the things we say about you?
I bet you have heard them too,
The name calling
The total rejection of what you love
So be nice to people,
No matter what,
Cause everyone gets a bad rap
How did it come to this?MeHow did it come to this?1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Walking past you
As if we are strangers
Never even offering
A simple hello
We were never once
The best of friends
At one time
We truly believed that
Nothing could tear us apart
We could tell each other
Even the most sacred of secrets
We would notice and care
When the other was troubled
In the past
I felt guilty for ending
Our precious friendship
I remember that you
Started drifting away first
When you did
I felt sad and confused
I tried so hard to keep us close
You never put effort into it
Didn’t you know that
Friendships go two ways?
Understand that it had to
End over an email
I couldn’t muster enough
Courage to say it to your face?
Know that it hurt when you made it
Seem like I was the only one at fault?
You didn’t see the rift
That you made between us
I got over
What if I told you...I'm a 19-year-old straight male, currently a student at university in a country you've never heard of.What if I told you...1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
There comes a time in our lives, usually when we are young, when we just want to shout our thoughts at the wrold, at everyone, even if we know nobody will hear. We see a commercial, we hear a line in a movie, we read a chapter in a book, which captures us violently, shakes us and we recover from the shake so stunned and amazed that we want to say everything that is on our mind in that same way. Then we pour a glass of water, juice, beer, something, sit by the open window staring at the passing cars or falling leaves, and start composing all the words in one finished thought.
This is pretty much what happened to me two minutes ago.
And it all started with the condition:
What if I told you...
What if I told you that some people don't think what they claim to think when they oppose you in an argument, no, they just want to stomp you with their leather boots
ScarsHis scars went deep. They went to his very soul, gripped it with an unyielding force. Those were only the invisible ones, there were physical ones too.Scars11 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
Who knew that the infamous number one hitman, his tutor, the one who Tsuna better than he knew himself, could be so unobservant. Those scars were always painfully obvious to Tsuna, especially the ones on his arms, but Reborn never noticed, neither did Doctor Shamal. Didn't that man pride himself on being the best doctor around? Yet he never said anything, though Tsuna had other painfully obvious scars scattered on his body.
Could it be that they didn’t want to bring it up, reasoning that it was a painful memory for Tsuna? However, that doesn’t add up when Reborn is all tough love, and likes to know everything, at almost any cost.
Perhaps, you can only see the scars when you know they exist. That Reborn, Shamal, his own mother, siblings, and guardians, can't see the scars on his arms, back, or chest, because they don’t
Bullet WoundHere Tsuna was, leaning against a wall, sliding down it really, leaving a trail of his blood on it, putting pressure on a wound on his abdomen.Bullet Wound9 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
That is if he hadn't left home today, like his hyper intuition was trying to tell him, but Vongola Decimo isn’t allowed to skip meetings.
Here he was, bleeding out due to a bullet wound. Really, he should have, would have, dodged that one bullet.
This is if he hadn't been surrounded, and defeated by the back up the stupid Mafioso had called in. They had even brought a sniper.
Here he was, almost laughing at the situation. The Mafioso whom had surrounded him didn’t even know who he was, he had just been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This is until he heard about their plots to hurt Lambo. He had heard other names after Lambo's, but he didn't even compute the words as his older brother protective fury activated.
Here he was, his very life ending in a painful way. Dying due to his own selfi
What friends are forWhen you are sad,What friends are for1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can barely manage a smile
Even then, that smile is for you
To raise your spirits
When you are excited,
I can’t help smiling brightly
At your enthusiasm
And ask you why.
When you are heartbroken,
I will stay behind and comfort you
Even though I want to smack the person
Who sealed your lovely smile
When you are unsure of yourself,
I will encourage you
Because I want you to achieve your dream
For you are very talented in that area anyway
You may sometimes be a pain,
And I know you have your quirks and faults
I will embrace them all and accept you as you are
And never once regret being by your side

Why can't you understand?
Why are you so scared of us?
Because we can't digest food?
Because we drink blood?
We are no different than you are
We have the same emotions
We laugh, love, and cry
We try to live our lives to the fullest
Even in a world that sees us as monsters
Going to human schools and interacting with others
We under go painful changes to ease your worries
Grinding our fangs so we can’t suck blood from your veins
Making it so our young never taste human blood
Instead feeding them animal blood
So why are you still afraid of us?
Is it because we are different?
How we laugh when you say everyone is equal
When we know that even amongst your own kind
There are those that shun their fellow humans cause of skin color
Although the number of humans like that are supposedly decreasing
The differences in beliefs, opinion, and politics still divide your race
Humans are also fickle beings
Making the worst examples the image of a grou

Am I a good friend?
Answer this truthfully,
For you know why I ask
How could I miss it?
The weak smiles
The small laughter
That mask of yours
Over the summer,
How did I forget?
To check up on you?
To ask you how you are?
I know now,
That I am not really
A good friend to you
For how does a good friend,
Miss that the other is in such pain
That they contemplate the unthinkable?
I want to tell you
That everything will work out fine
That I can relate
But I can't
Though I can tell you,
That people do care
That you will never be alone
will beare an amazing person
Banish the harmful
Thoughts from your mind
With only the most
Heart warming of thoughts
So that one day,
You can smile without pain
To give me a chance,
To become one of your great friends
