all dreams and wishes.
We swim like little orphans fishes
in the endless ocean
calls himself life.
We wanted to become superheroes,
astronauts, warriors and mayors
now we are payors.
The days are still beautiful
but something’s left
it came to a theft.
And I’m takin’ away to the dark side.
Even if some despise me,
I will be strong
oh everything’s so wrong.
I feel my heart divided.
Did you miss me?
The blade is smiling.
Yes. You’re right.
Come into the blue
But the waterfall carries me safely.

Is it cous of your smile?
Or your laugh?
Or the crazy way you act?
It's for the simple reason
That you don't judge me
You don't turn away from me
Instead you embrace me and love me
For me and for who I am
And for that I love you even more
LoveLove... It hurts. It claws deep into your soul and rips out the sorrow you never knew was there. It makes people, and it breaks people. It never dies... We always try to find it, but it hides well. We think we find it, then it turns around and rips into our souls once more... It's the passion we all crave, but it will always bring remorse. In the end, it's just not worth it to fight for what you think is right. Love... I'd rather die than suffer in its tight clench once more...Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

To hear my voice rise-
With precision and handcrafted emphasis;
Put my words on a paper boat and float them on serendipitous oxymorons.
I want you to know,
That I built a staircase on cloud nine,
Climbed until spiderwebs hung
From my ribs.
I collapsed at the peak
Breath in a puddle around me
Only to find
That I lay,

We are the clear blue water that surrounds our small island
We are waves that crash against the rocks
We are the history that still stands tall
We are the songs that are passed down through generations
We are the coquis that sing their nightly sonata
We are the music that makes our bodies sway with grace and beauty
We are the family that gathers with joy and laughter
We are the bright, vibrant colors that make each home wonderful and unique.
We are our ancestors who struggled to survive
We are the same but we are still individuals
We are Boricua!

The ForestStanding in the forestThe Forest1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
whispers in the rain
remembering I'm free
lonely. Sun shines brighter
fields of hapiness,
love and music
standing still and listening
hope flies away
and stays with me
Sounds of life and smell of death
taking one deep breath
dying every day
find my own way
that’s what happens to me every day
when butterflies thinking of winter wonderland,
when moles dig to the other end of the world,
when trees closed their eyes
mermaids from the ocean are at home in the forest.
I wonder why
I left my lovely forest lie
and fly back home.
Promt 4: Seme"Morning, Uruha-san." Aoi said sweetly as Uruha set down his bag with fan mail, popping a cigarette that he promised he wouldn't smoke into his mouth, but he was growing tired and needed something to relax him a bit. Uruha acknowledged Aoi's presence with a quick grunt and a slight nod of the head, immediately dumping his pile onto the table and trying to get through it without rushing, even if it could get kind of difficult at times when he was eager to go home.Promt 4: Seme3 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Morning, Uruha-san." Aoi repeated, this time, pulling his own stack of fan mail to the table where Uruha had decorated 3/4ths of the surface with small boxes and big, white envelopes.
"You have your own table, why must you come invade mine?" Uruha mumbled softly, knowing that the bitter words would in no way affect Aoi, much like it did to the other members. Uruha, although easy-going, had those days when he was in no mood to put up with troubles, and one of those troubles was sitting right before him, that stupid grin on his

Konoha was a mess. In its centre, there was a big hole, which was caused by Pain a few days ago. Only a few buildings at the edge of the village survived the immense destruction. Many Shinobi had lost their lives in this fight. It was like a massacre. Now each Ninja who was in a good condition helped to rebuild their hometown. Well, each Ninja except four. Let us see what was going on in front of the rock, which showed the five Hokages' faces.
"You want to change the past?" Sakura and Naruto exclaimed.
Tsunade had ordered them and Sai to come there in order to listen to her suggestion. Of course, she knew that it must have sounded ridiculous to them, but for her it was a perfect plan to hinder Akatsuki to destroy Konoha. Therefore, she had come up with this idea to change the past.
She nodded and looked each of them in the eyes and then said calmly.

Caía el hollín y las ascuas diminutas en el cielo nocturno, iluminando el cielo con toques naranjas y pinceladas rojas en un fondo negro y estrellado. Alzándose imponente en el panorama de Canterlot, el humo hacía ver la figura de ponys corriendo cargando a sus cuestas a potrillos o semejantes, siendo perseguidos por figuras sombreadas que se asemejaban a los guardias reales. Por el otro lado, las mismas figuras combatiendo las unas contra las otras; todo esto siendo observado por siete miembros de la guardia real que avanzaban poco a poco entre el fuego y las ruinas.
Seguían su marcha lenta por las ruinas llameantes de la antigua ciudad capital, aquella que decidieron y juraron proteger. Caminaba sobre las calles, cuyas brechas entre piedra y piedra se iban llenando con sangre,
Gypsy Heart for ShojisamaI never thought I would want another home. The winds in the windy season, the rains of the rainy one, the swept plains, the dried deserts, and the ever constant search and revelation of sweet snowmelt brooks snaking down from powerful mountains through myriads of forests. I was born on the plains and every year since my birth I have witnessed and survived every piece of weather the great land has to offer.Gypsy Heart for Shojisama3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Sakura sighed as she looked at the photograph, her favorite photo of Him. He was her old teacher from College, from which shed graduated two years ago. They were dating, everyone knew that now, but they had been sneaking around about it for the last three weeks of the last semester, so no one found out until after the graduation ceremony, and then it was nothing the principal could do.
It was amazing that none of her friends had figured out whom it was she was seeing. They were quite the detectives, all of them, but no one had been able to figure it out. Their jaws had all hit the ground when they saw her kiss a teacher at the ceremony.
Ino almost beat her up since she hadnt told her. But He stopped her. He stepped in, saying everything was His fault. That it was Him who wanted to keep it a secret, for her safety, so she wouldnt get thrown out of the school.
Thats when all her friends understood how much they really love
Step DancerShe moves to the music,Step Dancer3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A silent ballet in the countryside,
A hush of flute music and violin,
Feathered motions to the rhythm,
An honored silhouette of the ages.
Quiet and calm and beautifully orchestrated,
White as the freshly fallen snow,
New as the rain rushing to the ocean,
A sea breeze returning home,
A flower blossom drifting in found water.
There is unity in silence,
A call to the maidens of the past,
The healing of brokenness and scars,
A whisper of the ancient lands,
A note rising on the wing.
She is joined by many,
Those with clasped hands,
Rising in accord to her own song,
Stepping lightly on the cobblestone,
A beautiful moment in the late evening.
Silence in the mist as the steps are hushed,
The dance is severed by the pan drum,
Emitting a beat that can be felt in fingers,
Sensed in the still air,
Known in the never-trained footsteps.
A violin in the melody,
And the steps follow in its wake,
A thunderous commotion in the quiet town,
Lush and boisterous in the dark green,
And even still...Wishes upon a star,And even still...1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like the brilliance of the sun,
Fleeting like stardust
Blink – it’s gone.
And even still…
The sparkle that is left behind
Never fades easily
From the trenches of the mind.
Like butterfly’s wings
Are fragile, be gentle
Or breakage it brings.
And even still…
The powder left behind,
On your fingertips it does dance,
As it goes unrefined.
Mirrors on the wall,
Like shimmering water,
It can distort the image,
And the ego it does slaughter.
And even still…
The cracks it leaves behind,
Do leave room to be filled
With the kindness of mankind.

A soft red scarf was wrapped around her neck, her having dug it out specifically for this event. Her grandmother had given it to her, before she passed away, so it was only on special occasions, like now, that she retrieved it from it's hiding spot.Let It Snow9 years ago in General More Like This
After all, it had been three years since the last snowfall in Konoha.
Her breath formed a mist before her, condensing until visible to the naked eye. She smiled at the unusually silent street. Most sane people were safely tucked away in their beds, enjoying sleeping in on this brisk morning. Giggling softly, she imagined the young children to awake the parents with small shrieks of joy, dragging the adults into the fresh snow in nothing but sleeping gear.
Few people walked passed her, and nearly all of them were fellow ninja. Some, like her, were Chuunin, but there were a few Genin and about two Jounin, probably retur

The girl explained.
The woman scolded her, "Do you have any idea what could've happened if you were followed?! Why did you help him anyway?" The girl didn't answer. "Well why did you bring him here?"

'Yet with the woes of sin and strife
The world has suffered long.
Beneath the angel strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong.
And man, at war with man hears not

O hush the noise, ye men of strife,

Once upon a time in the four great nations of Alchimia, Semper Hiems, Silentium and Solset there lived a great population of humans. They had integrity, wisdom, and dignity for one another, and the Church reigned dominant. However, with the coming of a new god- techonology -that all changed. The humans became ignorant, irritable, and selfish. Many wars broke out internally and abroad. Eventually, some of the humans went

Kakashi lifted Sakura up on his back. "Let's keep moving. It's not safe to stay here for long."
Sakura giggled. "I guess I'm never to old for a piggyback riding." Kakashi grinned and started walking again.
It took the group four hours to get down from the mountain and over to the Land of Water.
They took a quick break where Kakashi gave Sakura a foot rub, 'cause she had totally lost the feeling in her legs. Naruto played dumbly with Akamaru, only Kiba and Yukie gave a silent smirk in knowledge.
When everyone had ate and done their business they headed to the nearest seaport town.
This was a quick journey. The weather was really on their side and after only three hours they had passed the gates to Mizu

Another vampire in a dark black suit stood a few feet away from us. He was tall and lithe, like Master Alucard, the same raven hair and white skin. However, unlike my Master, I didn't like his smile. It gave no warmth, no true humor. As for his eyes his eyes! His eyes were black, completely black. Sinister. He had no pupils. And he continued to stare at me. How I wanted to look away but it was like staring into two dark pits, penetrating and slowly swallowing me whole.
Then I felt my Master encircle my waist, pulling me into his chest. I sighed with relief from the distraction.
"Wilfred, it's been too long." My master spoke, his voice dropping low. He was neither impolite nor removed. However, he lacked the usual cynical and arrogant stature. I could tell that this man was merely an acquaintance of my master; nothing more.
