BoredomThe constant blur.Boredom3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This gray, lifeless haze.
As rain gently hits the window pane,
It makes this beautiful world seem dark and monotonous.
There is no one here.
I long for a companion to share memories with,
To confide in, to trust.
But here, I am alone.
I long for something to be passionate about;
To add some excitement to this coliseum of weariness.
How I crave for a task to complete, rather than to engage in nothingness.
I feel full of feebleness, serving no purpose.
How do I go about leaving this pit of despair?
I am trapped, with no ways of escape;
Left to slowly go mad, and lose my sanity.
Here I stand, under a cloud of boredom.

I hate Valentine's Day.
It's just a god-awful holiday that happy people invented to make everybody else feel bad about themselves. It's just a day where all the lonely people get pounded down their throats that nobody in the world wants them. But don't think you're safe when you've actually got someone - now there's a whole crapload of expectations put on the both of you to make the day "romantic" and "special" and "perfect."
Which it won't be.
Cause it's a fucking crappy holiday.
And just when I finally had someone who might make me feel a little less miserable, stupid Antonio's idiot boss decided to send him on a fucking business trip. On fucking Valentine's Day. Right after his birthday too, so we hardly had any time to celebrate.
Not that we didn't stay up all night anyways.
The only plans I had that day were with my brother. Or should I say the disgusting, writhing mass that would be my b

The sun shone in the closed eyes of Ciel Phanomhive as if it was saying “It’s time to wake up.” well it was certainly bright as the boy shifted under his covers.

Ciel stared down as the demon opened his eyes and the blood rushed up to the boy’s cheeks for he had to turn away at the look of his butler. For he had never thought that Sebastian slept therefore would look so well hot.

Prussia jumped from his side of the chessboard, “NO! I DEMAND A REMATCH!”
Germany, half drunk and exhausted, scolded his brother, “It’s three in the morning! You’ve been at it for almost 2 hours…give it a rest!” He stoked Italy’s head in his lap. The little Italian had drunk himself sick and passed out on Germany’s lap.
Prussia plopped down and Russia taunted him, “Tell me that you lost Prussia-san.”

Request - Prussia x Kid!Reader : FamilyI was walking across a field alone after West and I had a big fight. He never really understood me anyway ... but I was too proud to admit that I owed him a lot for taking me in after my Country was dissolved. Truth be told, I just wanted to get away for a few minutes because West's obsession with cleaning and strong dislike for mess was pissing me off. The whole thing that started the argument was that I'd left my dirty underwear on the bathroom floor. I told him I forgot to pick them up, but West insisted that I did it on purpose because I "forget" regularly. So I told him that I had so many of his nags to focus on and I could only work on one at a time. Then he did this big sigh that he always does when we argue and said "I don't nag you, Prussia". By the end of it, I just decided to take a walk. But I never expected to find something that would change my life on my small journey. Anyway, that's enough about the situation.

APH RusPrus The Sickly Princess Chapter 1Gilbert sits on his bed by the window, silently reading a book. Natural light from the open window bathed the young man in warmth, shining off pale silver hair and making his skin seem translucent. He looks almost ghostly in the calm atmosphere. A gentle breeze coming through the window breaks the silence by rustling the pages of the old book slightly and blows the faint scent of roses through the room. But that's not all that disturbed the silence that Gilbert was accustomed to. A baseball flies through the window, sailing across the room in a graceful arch before hitting the wall with a loud thud.

Can you see me past the boyfriend haze of sweet nothings and constant flowers?
Forgive me if I sound a little bitter
It's just because I am
It's just because the thought of today makes my heart squeeze tight in my chest
You asked for a change of plans
For a boy and an event you didn't even remember until far past midnight
And I smiled and said it was fine
I even wished you to have fun
But in my heart I was reminded of waiting in a hospital bed, when you never came
So, yes, I lied, like a stereotypical girl
Like the catty girls you see in the films you love
Because I wasn't fine, not a little bit, when I realized what this meant
It meant another blow off
Another "I'm too busy"
Another example that I'm not the priority at the moment
I'll still forgive you
I'll still smile
But I just wished you knew that I was hurt

and all was new
he hadn't a thing to do-
for nothing had died when the world was so young

When Death became older,
things changed for him then
when he finally came to a use.
He took all the souls
of the once living men
and brought them
to places where they would be able to rest.
Although it was new,
to see a thing die,
no one questioned their fate.
Instead, they came along,
quiet as mice,
under the night-black cloak of Death.
Nothing much happened,
in Death's lonely "life"
when day after day he collected the souls,
bringing them from both places
of peace and strife.
He continued his work
not even he questioning why
and everything ran as it would.

And then one day the current

He walked over to the window and pulled the velvet curtain back, a dim white light poured in the room, then Ciel reached out and removed the lock on the window and pushed it open, letting a cool late Summer breeze blew into the rather large room. He shivered, of course he was only in his nightshirt. Putting his elbows on the window sill , he rested his head on his hands and stared up at the moon.

Good and evil, right from wrong, angelic verses demonic.
These two polar opposites in life are the source of both happiness and tragedy. Most people would say happiness is guided by good, while tragedy is the force of evilness. But, do we really understand the true nature of the two? What would make someone entirely evil or good?
In society we are taught to respect those that are innocent and shame those that are tainted, but do we ever question it? It is the natural act of man to smite the wicked and commend the heroic without realising the reasons behind these acts.
