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

Through the window in my mind
as I watch from behind my closing eyes
with the joys of happiness dripping through my veins
I see charging violently,
With their eyes full on fire.
I see horses.
Brilliant bright lights blinding.
Horses, horses blinding me softly.
emitting from their shining bodies
and rhythm sounding powerfully
from large elegant hooves.
Bright, shining light
from their glowing silver bodies.
from brilliant black outlines.
Freedom ebbing from pulsing veins
reverting back toward my gaze
feelings of wonder.
bright and shining,
free and wild.
They gallop from within my weak grip
And disappear as I awaken my eyes
To view their full, great beauty.
But they have gone.
They have flown.
Stretching out powerful strides
running from this mist,
that surrounds me.
They have gone.
Left me alone.
They were horses, horses
Free before my eyes.
On fire with beauty

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."

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.

It's a mistake.
They hadn't been trying for another; they were just young parents trying to deal with one helpless baby, not to mention stumbling through marriage after growing up with hardly any role models. They didn't need another child added to the mix. But there was nothing she could do. The life had already begun inside her, and she knew now what that meant. She knew it would grow and grow, till it finally burst forth with blood and pain, and then there would be another baby crying to be fed, to be held, to be cared for and loved.
Helplessly wiping away a few tears, Winry stood up again and flushed the toilet. When she stepped into the bedroom, Nina stopped bawling and waited, watching her pathetically, begging with her glistening gold eyes to be picked up. So Wi

"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.

"No way, it's disgusting!"
"No!" With that Edward batted the offending French fry from the Colonel's hand.
The colonel sighed, shaking his head at the blond before looking at his bother. Al's hazel eyes rolled and he shrugged before answering the silent question, "He's always been like this," He murmured softly as he popped another fry into his mouth.
Al finished his fries and grabbed the remains of his meal. He then waved goodbye and threw out his trash before walking out of the restaurant.
Roy smirked at the sulking alchemist who was staring out the window. 'Alone at last ' He then pushed Edward's meal closer to him.

Will you smile for me?
I want to see.
Just how happy you can be.
Though all may not show.
I still want to know.
Don't ask me why or so.
Don't try to keep, it all inside.
Because that'll create, a bumpier ride.
You'll feel better, if you just confide.
All this time, I only hear you sigh.
And I know you, want to cry.
Don't try to tell me another lie.
Because I see through it all.
I promise, I won't let you fall.
I'll stay with you, whether you run or you crawl.
Yes, I do have problems of my own.
But I'll put that aside, so you won't be alone.
So try not cry, or sigh, or moan.
All of this negative energy, isn't my style.
So stop distancing yourself by a mile,
So be happy and laugh and smile.
All you do is sit around, and pout.
Well that's not really fun, when you're all in doubt.
So try your best to let it all out.
First, I'll see you happy.
And then I'll worry- about me.
So- for now- just smile for me.

Put the blade down
Don't you think it's time for something new?
A new attitude, a new way of dealing with
The things they put you through
A new way to survive
A new way to pull you through
You may not see it now
But if you hold on
It always gets better somehow
So throw your self-destructive tool
Away and join the fight
We'll show those in pain
That there's always a light
And I know you think that no one's there
And I know you think that no one cares
But the things they said, they're not true
They're only trying to hurt you
If you go through with this
It'll only get worse
So just throw it away
So just throw the guilt away
All the anger, all the pain
All the fear and all the shame
Just throw it all away

And she's so far up

Portal 2: Remember FinalIt's a terrible moment for anyone to discover a ruined surprise. After someone took so much time, work and planning to do something special for someone they care deeply for, only to turn and see them standing right behind them. They saw everything. They know everything. And then the feelings erupt: nausea, frustration, heartbreak, disappointment, humiliation and more all combined into one painfully numbing feeling that leaves one speechless and standing there like an idiot. There's no excuse, they can't think of a good lie to cover it up and all they can do is stand there and babble apologies and try to explain themselves. In some cases, the person they failed to surprise feels very awkward with the surprise ruined and unsure of what to do, making them both feel worse. However, in most cases they feel so happy and grateful that they did all this just to make them happy, all I forgotten and the surprise can be enjoyed. In a sense, surprises lead to more surprises.Portal 2: Remember Final3 years ago in Romance More Like This

Not four days ago.
You were smartly dressed,
A bow at your neck,
A flower on your breast.
Your skin was pale,
Showing the reality of death.
But now you're even paler,
You glow like the moon.
The tears that fall
From your corpse eyes
Are like diamonds in the air.
And as you sink your teeth
Into my throat,
All I can do is moan.

It didnt really matter when or where I was flying, as long as there were no Erasers shooting steel bullets up at me. When its just me and the sky, I feel as if I could just keep on going forever. Or at least I wish I could. I know Id have to eat at some point, and some sleep would be necessary.

Mini Wheats: The BeginningIt's funny when a future father panics once he sees his wife in labor. Once he sees the smallest wince on her face, he races around the house to grab suitcases he packed weeks ago with clothes, tooth brush and paste, coloring books in case she was bored, baby clothes that included socks and knitted hats, diapers, the video camera, five books, trail mix in case the hospital food was bad and for some reason, the Scrabble board game. Once he stuffed the car with all seven suit cases, he jumped inside, started the car and sped out the door. It took him several seconds before he realized Chell was standing at the doorway with a confused look on her face as she watched him drive off without her. He did an illegal U-turn, made tire marks on the front lawn and pushed her into the car, saying he was sorry throughout the ten minute drive to the hospital.Mini Wheats: The Beginning3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

And the music is too loud
There are far too many strangers
In this drunk mess of a crowd
Anywhere I look
There is some strange guy giving strange looks
And my head is spinning round
As if it's nowhere to be found
But it's Saturday night and everyone's here
Drinking pints of foul tasting beer
Because we need this to have fun
Because right now we have no fear
So drink away the worries
And don't care about the money
Get it down, we're in a hurry
To lose control
We're far too intoxicated
To care what they think
So let's talk a bit more loudly
And go buy another drink
We say it's only for tonight
But we know that's a lie
But I won't tell if you won't
Let's pretend that we're alright
I see the classy girl from my year
Puking up her dignity
And the guy that everyone likes
All these people aren't so pretty
When the alcohol kicks in
So why do we let this happen?
What a strange world we live in
