You didnt send my heartbeat into a frenzy the first time I saw you. It was a month or two before I started feeling the little palpitations inside my chest and made sure that my hand accidentally brushed against yours every now and then.
(I wanted to make sure you got used to the feeling of my atoms colliding with yours.)
I told myself it was stupid and simply physical. You werent pulling my heart strings, you were toying with my belt buckle by smiling at me across the room and asking me to spend time with you on a Saturday afternoon. I was sold by the time you pulled into my driveway and my name slipped from between your lips.
(Sweaty palms and twisted vocal chords told me no one said it quite like you.)
I promised myself this was strictly a one-way thing. I feigned like I felt nothing, and in my nervousness I became the witty jackass. You laughed at my barbed-wire jokes and sped through a red light while I was watching

The Best Gift
The times Edward Elric cries are rare and few, but the tears that gush up and spill from the rims of his eyes now are without shame and restraint as they just keep flowing, tracing wet lines down his cheeks and dripping from his chin. He doesn't try to hide them or wipe them away as it finally occurs to him how stupid the 'men don't cry' rule is, for what he holds in his arms is the most beautiful, amazing, miraculous thing he's ever laid eyes on; he'd have to be bereft of a soul not to cry.
The emotion that fills his heart as he gazes down at his newborn son is raw and utterly overwhelming. He has never been happier.
The MelodyEvery day we...struggle to find ourselves,The Melody4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Struggle to find our faith,
Struggle with learning to live with,
Pain that has such a bitter taste
Every night we...relive the day,
The ones that came before,
Thinking about the future,
And what's in store
And then we dream,
Wondering just who...
We will one day be
Living with love, living with laughter,
Living every day, that's all that matters!
If we open our hearts, then we will see,
The rhythm of our lives, the melody
Every day we...reach out our hands,
To someone who is in need of it,
Someone who is a puzzle,
And the pieces just don't fit
Every night we...remember all the ones we meet,
Remember all the songs we sing,
Remember the ones that we love,
And how to us, they mean everything
And then we dream,
Wondering just who...
We will one day be
Living with love, living with laughter,
Living every day, that's all that matters
A Tale of FMAA Tale of FMA4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
An array of light
Brightly lit before our eyes
Slowly twisting violently
Swirling about us
The encompassing darkness
Taking its payment from us
Our dear Mother soon reborn
Screams pierce the darkness
Your body stolen from you
My leg turned to dust
Incredible pain has come
Tear slowly falling
You are calling out to me
Fear is evident
Reaching, trying to grab you
The darkness took you
Our Mother not to be had
Instead a monster
Twisted and mangled about
Our punishment for our sins
For acting like gods
Screams still echoing about
Losing my brother
Forcefully taken away
I must bring him back
We already lost mother
I cannot lose him
Pulling the armor closer
Marked with my own blood
Screaming into the darkness
Tears are streaming down
'Take whatever is needed!'
'Give me back my dear brother!'
Mist mingled about
The stench of blood in the air
What had happened here?
Where could we have gone so wrong?
Your leg was taken

"Me too, brother," replied the echoing child's voice from within the armor. They lay silently while crickets played sonnets.
"Al, you know I love you, right?" His voice was thick with emotion- or perhaps puberty.
"Same here, brother." Al whispered. "More than anything..."
"Al, you know you mean everything to me, right? And I want you to be happy... if anything ever happens to me." The last was almost an after thought.
"Brother, what is this about?"
Ed did not answer immediately. When he did it was strained, as if he were trying to come to terms with it himself. "I've just been ...thinking... a lot lately." He paused for a moment. "Well, goodnight Al."
Al awoke the following morning- never remembering falling asleep. He was as bare as the day he was born, but alive... and whole.
Ed was no where to be found.

their banners waving
to the north they came
across the great Rhine
with their honor held high
the sound of their feet
came down through
the hollows of the forest
and fell upon
the ears of Arminius
gathering his Germanic tribes together
in expectation of battle
they laid out their plan
they set their trap
and the marching horde
with red banners fluttering
came to conquer these tribes
these lands were to be Rome's own
where their peace could be inforced
by the sword and the whip
the Legions kept up their march
the cadence sounding out
to the ears of Arminius' men
until Rome marched into the arms
of the German trap
and the battle ensued
clashing sword to clashing sword
screams ringing out through
as the butchery raged on
and the blood flowed
thick and red
into the floor of the forest
there to forever
feed the roots of the old trees
that witnessed this terrible carnage
until finally the sounds of the dying

Brother and I had just gotten back to Central from looking for the Philosopher's Stone again. Colonel had given us a bad lead again. However, we did catch some criminals the military was after.
But Brother wasn't very happy about that. He believed Colonel sent us out there just so that we would have to help catch them. So basically, the Colonel had told us there was a lead for the Philosopher's Stone in the West when he knew there was no such lead.
I wasn't sure what to think.
Brother had just gone into have his usual meeting with Mustang after our mission.
I was left out, due to the fact that I'm not military personnel. So I was left to walk around Headquarters.
I soon found myself in Mr. Hughes office.
"Why, hello Alphonse!" Mr. Hughes called out happily from his desk.
"Hello, Mr. -I mean- Lieutenant Colonel "
"Oh, Alphonse, call me Maes. Or Mr. Hughes; either way you're fine!" Mr. Hughes reassured quickly, in his overly happy voice. "Please take a seat, Alphonse."
FightingFor Edward Elric, fighting with his younger brother was not quite like fighting with anyone else. As a child, he had frequent fights with his neighbor and friend, Winry Rockbell. These fights would usually escalate to Ed being hit with whatever loose objects were handy, and Winry running off in tears. After the initial anger and pain (which usually took no more than five minutes to wear off, ten for a particularly heated argument), they would find each other once again, mutter their apologies, and Winry would fetch a bandage for the wounds she had inflicted on her friend. That would be the last either would hear or think of their fight, and they would resume whatever game they had been playing at the time. As they grew older, they still fought each other (quite viciously at times), and they still apologized quite quickly after the offense had been made.Fighting8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Roy looked around the office cautiously, at first not seeing who had entered. As he watched his standing lamp near one of his couches sway, he smirked at the person hiding behind the light.
"Fullmetal, what on Earth are you-?"

Ed then ducked his head out and winked at Roy, "I'm a ninja."

Roy could have face palmed. "Well be a ninja quietly or go somewhere else."
Edward frowned as Roy went back to work.

You were smartly dressed,
A bow at your neck,
A flower on your breast.

You glow like the moon.
The tears that fall

Are like diamonds in the air.
And as you sink your teeth
Into my throat,
All I can do is moan.

another thing that we noticed is that when ever a human is walking turds her she starts to walk back, ears back, head low and she starts shivering so hard (it makes you really sad to see yourself like a "monster" to her even when you're not the person that hurt her and you're just walking to give her some carrots)
and when i first saw her, her body was covered in scars old and new so you can't help but wonder why, what did she do to deserve this?
we discovered about the crazy habit that she had when we first got on top of her (you'd think the dealer would mention something like that) and we couldn't use the rein very much because her lips were already cut on both sides
since we wanted to help her every person who got on top of her tried to calm her down without falling (her speed was scary i can tell you that)
and after long training she got back to normal and the truth is when she did i never enjoyed riding horses as much as i did on her.
she was a kind mare, always worried about her

He had come to her, arm completely blown off and leg so bashed in he could barely limp through the door. She had immediately knocked him on the head with a wrench, then set to work as soon as she had given him a spare leg to use in the meantime. It was just like always, as she focused on her work and shut out all else.
But at the same time it was different, so vastly different. This was the first time Winry Rockbell had had to do the job without her grandmother's comforting presence at her side. It felt wrong, somehow, to arrange the wires and weld the metal, then turn and see only empty air where her little granny should have been standing, pipe clutched between her teeth as she watched Winry work.
Winry tried to ignore the strangeness, but it seemed to pervade the entire house. Conversation around the table was scarce, but that was probably because it was just the two of them. She realized later that Al's absence should have alerted her that something was up, especially with th
