HopelessI cling to his hand (sometimes with a few fingers, sometimes with both hands) as we browse vegetables and fish in the supermarket, for I am hopelessly attached to his gentle touch. People have always said that my fingers are long and my hands are big for a girl (proving their point by aligning their palms and digits with mine. I usually feel like a giant when this happens). But in his hands they are small, feminine, soft, my thumbs dwarfed, slender.Hopeless3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
And I am hopelessly out of control when we cook dinner together, when he looks deep into my eyes as he touches me, kisses me, and oh, God, when he listens, laughs (God, to hear his laugh). In these brief moments I can forget the truth, the way of life I have adopted years ago.
Because, on other occasions I grip my pillow hard, attempt to silence the sobs, shiver in the cold of the dorm room (in the dormitory of a college not meant for me, never meant for me). I feel like I am nothing wanting to be nothing (a word permanent in the tremors of

It's in every heart.
It keeps love and death apart.
The light pushes hard
and so does the dark.
When they push to hard your heart will burst.
So be sure to belive the light first.
Run from it.
Hide from it.
Whatever you do don't ever go all the way through.
Growing UpForget the teddy bears,Growing Up9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Forget the night-light.
No more stories,
No more kisses good night.
No more fairy tales,
No more stories that
Have happy endings,
No more hero's that,
Save the planet.
This isn't a fantasy,
You really are getting older,
Imagination completely gone.
It's time to grow up,
Time to be brave,
Time to say goodbye,
To those innocent ways.
It's time to develop,
Time to evolve,
Time to grow up,
Time to become an adult,
And go my own way.
It's time to say goodbye,
To those younger days,
I went from ponytails, baby dolls,
Bicycles and training wheels,
To a license, prom, dates,
And high heels.
Growing up will change me so,
My childhood I must now let go.
Growing up is strange to do,
But it is something I have to
Look forward to.

UMVC3 Phoenix Wright 'rant'UMVC3 Phoenix Wright 'rant'4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Hello, folks. A while back, I made a rant regarding Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Unlike many other rants, I wasn't bashing the game like an idiot. Rather, I was ranting about about the people bashing and nitpicking about the game. Mind you, I didn't attack anybody in particular, nor did I give anybody away in that rant (unless you count mentioning BLACKbustercrybaby in the description), but the people who were ranting on Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 are rather... famous.
Now, as a part of the rant, I covered the people who bitched and moaned about the characters, more specifically Hawkeye, Rocket Raccoon, and Phoenix Wright.
Well, this rant is going to specifically cover the complaints and hatred against a character that has been pushed to be included in this game since the original Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. That character is Phoenix Wright of Ace Attorney fame.
Let's start off with a little history. Now, this isn't the first time that Phoenix Wright was considered for a fighting game. Bac

I'm not supposed to miss you...
I'm not supposed to want you,
or think about you,
or yearn for you.
I'm the one that said goodbye.
I'm the one that found someone else
When you called me psycho.
I'm the one that stopped speaking,
Yet I miss you.
I miss you.
I miss you.
The DarknessDarkness is my comfort.The Darkness9 years ago in Open More Like This
It protects me from my fears,
Hides me from them.
In the dark I can watch the light,
Without the light watching me.
The darkness understands me,
It does not judge me;
In the dark we all look the same.
It wards off those who fear the dark;
The ones that seek to harm me.
Darkness is my only ally,
In the war I fight alone;
The war in my head.

If you smoke this stash,
You will become brash!
You will see talking Objects,
And sometimes GIANT insects,
You may get the crunchies,
So go out and get MUNCHIES!!!
Chips, Dip, Pretzels, and BEER,
A seven-eleven is always near,
OH! Weed, Weed, we love you,
Even though the fuzz say NO!

Crash And BurnI wonder if other people see how I feel.Crash And Burn2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With every glare to meet my eyes,
its another preying glare to slap my face
and another glare that heats my cheeks with nervous fire
I wonder if, day after day,
if people see my fear, if they see how I shake.
When they walk by, I stumble away
because I know they don't want me near them.
I wonder if they pity me
If they see the lonely child inside my glass skin.
Sometimes they give me gentle eyes
because they feel sorry for how lonley I really am inside.
I wonder if they know I don't fit in,
if they try to welcome me but I'm too naive to see.
But everytime I just walk away because-
because everytime I try is another crash and burn.
Who she isShe's so tiredWho she is4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tired of being upset
Of hating herself
When was the last time she looked in a mirror
And thought the girl staring back
That she was worth anything
Anything at all
The last time she felt truly loved
That she was needed
So lost now
In her worlds of fantasy
Where she is who she always wanted to be
She forgets who she really is
Always looking back
On what went wrong
What she lost
So many lies she has told herself
That not even she knows what is real
Gave up what she believed in
Because every night when she prays not to wake up
She would open her eyes to a new day
Looking in the mirror a monster stares back
One with tears running down its face
Wishing it was brave enough
To be itself and love who that is
Or at least have the courage to end it
To lay down
And give in to endless darkness

Depression's GraspThe dirt is cold and blackDepression's Grasp2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beneath your feet,
Shaking as the hands rise back up,
Gripping your ankles, and yanking.
Their nails dig into your skin,
Crimson life pouring out of you,
Splattered on the Earth.
You shudder, and shriek,
A million thoughts bombarding your head.
"This can't be happening again,
This can't happen to me again!
I beat it last time!"
But, sure enough, your foolishness
Gets the better of you,
The better of boths sides that you hate.
As the hands pull you under, you breath
Heavy, no longer screaming, accepting it.
You choke on the rocks and mud,
Blinded, the last and only light in a world
Consumed by darkness vanishing as you sink.
Little do you know, this only continues because
You forgot you could kick at those hands.

For some reason I can't seem to move past this pain,
Just a simple glimpse of your face makes my heart jump,
The mere thought of you makes my blood pump,
At times I wish that we could go back,
Hit reverse and rewind the track,
But that's something that we can't do,
Because this has changed me and you,
There's too many things that I just don't know,
And we might not have that far to go,
Just like you said, I guess time will tell,
And until then I'll be living in this hell.

Harley looked nervously down at the little white stick in her hand, then at her watch. 30 seconds.
30 seconds standing in between a joyous life of crime with her beloved mistah J or resigning herself to deskwork for nearly a year.
25 seconds. Harley paced in anticipation. She could just be coming down with a bug...
What would he say? Would he be sad? mad? happy? disappointed?
What would he do to her? He never meant to hurt her, but sometimes his anger got the best of him.
Harley stared at the little white stick in her hand. It could change her life forever.
Harley nervously looked down at th stick. On it was a little red plus sign. It was positive, Harleen quinzell was pregnant.
The joker sat scribbling at some blueprints on his desk. He was intensely concentrated. Harley slowly walked into his office, he didn't look up.
"Mistah J?" She squeaked
"I'm busy Harles."

But the world was obvlivious
Ignorant and Blind
So he made a brilliant Riddle
To test the worlds mind

To toy with your thoughts
He can answer them all
While you're always wrong
But don't be ashamed

He can solve any Riddle
Yes he can solve them all.
