Because I'm tired of being told I'm not.
Through twisted lies, lofty glares, and backstabbing words,
Even though I'm loud, sensitive, and painfully shy,
Even though I'm overweight and zit-faced
And have depressingly low self-esteem,
Because I have dreams,
And I plan on achieving every single one of them.
So f*** you if you think I'm not,
Because I know

Lily Evans~ September 2, 1971: First YearLily Evans7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Lily Evans opened her eyes slowly. She rolled onto her back and looked up at the canopy draped over her four-poster bed and smiled. It seemed that her arrival at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry last night hadnt been a dream. She quietly pushed back the bed curtains, stepped into her slippers and began making her bed. The other girls werent awake yet. Lily had always been an early riser. Her dormmates, to Lilys relief, all seemed agreeable, friendly andthankfullyjust as nervous as she was. Mary MacDonald seemed especially nice. Lily resolved to speak more with her today.
After dressing and brushing her teeth, she made her way down the stairs, through the Gryffindor Common Room and into the maze of Hogwarts corridors. Last night, she had conscientiously looked for landmarks as the Prefects had led them from the Great Hall to Gryffindor Tower and she only got turned around on the way back once.

You saw the way I looked at you
And you looked right back at me.
I'll never forget the way
You made me feel that day,
Like I was the only girl you see.
I tried so hard to find
A way to make you mine,
But we just weren't meant to be.
And so I hide
Just how I feel inside.
I don't know what to do
When all I see is you.
We carried on as nothing more than good friends
Scared that love would break us
In ways we couldn't mend.
I have to ignore the way
You make me feel each day,
Like I'm with whom you want to be.
I try hard to deny
Keep asking myself why,
We don't just bite the bullet and be.
And so we hide
Just how we feel inside.
I don't know what to do
When all I see is you.
But something changed so suddenly,
You said you had something to say to me.
You took my hand, like in my dreams you do
And said those three words "I love you".
I love you.
Now we don't have to hide
Just how we feel inside.
I know exactly what to do
Coz all I see is you.

"I will kill him," muttered a voice from behind a dark red curtain.
"Erm..." a moments silence, "...Sleeep in heavenly peeaace!"
"Not if I get there first," growled another voice from the opposite wall. The fresh light of morning was creeping into the room through the maroon curtains, lighting piles of messy clothes and highlighting the dust dancing in the air.
"Sleeeeeep in heavenly peeeeeaaaace!"
A shot of light flew between the third, previously silent, pair of curtains and the singing came to a halt with a faint choking noise, like the person responsible had been grabbed round the throat. There was a brief moment of silence, broken only by the sound of fast footsteps on the wooden floor, striking it with a dull thud in a mad and unpredictable rhythm. Then there was a ba

Why couldn't you see

I know you cared
I know you worry
But still you did it
With no hurry
You kept on pulling
On my strings
You showed me love
But now it stings
You acted nice
But said mean things
Had me confused
But I found my wings
You broke my heart
You ripped it out
But it will heal
There is no doubt
I will be sad
I'll shed some tears
But in the end
I'll break my fears
I will move on
I won't look back
I'll leave you lying

Is a picture of your face
You look so pretty and happy
Forever and always
I click the arrow over
And the camera shows a slide
It’s you and me together
But also that other guy
He always made me angry
I never liked him around
I screamed and fought with you
Which only brought us down
The photo changes again
But this time only us
We’re holding hands together
In the park out by the bus
I remember that night clearly
And the picture changed once more
It was like it was yesterday
That I found you on the floor
I screamed out your name
And tried to find my phone
But my hands were shaking badly
And I felt completely alone
The picture on the screen
Was of your grave
There were flowers and were people
And the memories in my brain
How could I not see
That you were never truly smiling
And that all along it was
Your hurt that you were piling
Maybe it was that guy
Or maybe it was me
Or maybe it was your job;
Perhaps your family

If one only looks at what is ahead
They shall trip on the obstacles that are now
If one only looks back
They will be caught by unknown surprises
Have fun and create good memmories now
Even if tomorrow has you strapped for cash
And yesterday you were bummed out
Live in the moment
Be proud of that what you have achieved now
Not those things you achieved so long ago
Sing the song and the words will come
Just as those who march beyond you
And those who've fallen behind
Eventually we'll all end up at the same destination
And be able to greet eachother once more
Live in the moment
There is no putting a stop to it
We only move forward even when that brings about our own destruction
So just make sure you've had the best ride of them all
So you can look back 1 single time at the end
Smile and whisper to yourself :

She paced back and forth in her pen, yapping loudly at the annoying crowd of people outside. Their yells, their laughs, and their screaming continued as it always did for her every day. It was utterly nerve-racking for the anxious Thylacine, she tried yapping louder as though it would make the crowd go away. Make them go far, far away and leave her in peace.
She was, quite literally, caged.
And her only visitors made it no better for her at all. As though being enclosed weren't bad enough, she couldn't even eat whatever little food her keepers gave her without someone taunting her outside the small pen. Whether it was a young child acting loud and happy about seeing such an animal or teens throwing things at her just to see her reaction, she was constantly tormented by their sounds.
By now she'd given up calling, her voice too hoarse to yap anymore. She never stood still for a minute in her prison, pacing anxiously to and fro around the small area she was forced to call her home. She h

I used to play here everyday
Alone and with no light
Behind an ashen, big board
People calls as a piano
My fingers were dancing
With the old, cranky piano keys
And rhyming with all the chords and melodies I know
All the black and white
Became one amidst shadow
Behind the nothingness, I played wild
Raging and fighting against the false melodies
Sounded as I pressed the wrong parts of the song
This ears can never hear well
But my failures rang inside them
Behind the nothingness, my fingers kept playing
Without audience to sit before me
Without clapping hands to sound appreciation
Without a figure or even a shadow
Than the overwhelming darkness around me
Neither do I know
I closed my eyes or opened them
But I kept rounding with the same song
To finish what I had started
Behind the nothingness I have

Of Time-Travel and Tea"Bugger, blast, damn and double damn," exclaimed Samuel Wenthrop, extracting himself from the ruins of the smoking time machine with an undignified and partially anatomically impossible wrench of his lower quarters. On realising the latter fact and, more importantly, remembering that attempting the anatomically impossible often leads to quite surprising amounts of agony (as was indeed true in this case), he proceeded to follow up the aforementioned expletives with a rather more potent set, including several which he had picked up from his previous travels in time and which this present author therefore lacks the knowledge to translate (though the few phrases of Ancient Sumerian he favoured his unfortunate contraption with were in fact a recipe for a primitive forerunner of the digestive biscuit - Wenthrop's knowledge of ancient languages was not as extensive as he often claimed).Of Time-Travel and Tea5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Walking a mortal's beaten path
Oh, the straight and narrow
Tightening this noose around my neck
Pierce humanity with time's dull arrow
Tease this ghost inside of me
Can't return without your will
With every breath I feel the chill

Wither: PrologueEvery intake of breath was vital, her heart pounded against her chest, and her chest rose and fell.Wither: Prologue5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Everything was a great struggle, coughing seemed to make living impossible. No longer breathing she hacked up blood from her throat and watched it fall onto the cobblestones as she held herself up by a stone wall. Drenched in blood and sweat, she shivered from the ferocious cold.
Silently she urged herself to keep going, to find someone that would help her. The break of the alley seemed like a mile away, it seemed as if she would never reach civilization. Finally her body reached its limit and she collapsed. The ground was warm and her thoughts suddenly pressured her to let go of everything and fall asleep.
A shaky and strained breath escaped her lips as she fought to keep her head up, fought for alertness. Her head fell back hitting the building wall; she stared up at the disoriented sky. The moon was blood red and clouds hid most of the stars in the sky. Suddenly she lost all hope.
Wondering of The OceanWatching the waves. Watching the ships, seeing everything around the ocean made life go away to a 13 year-old girl. It was like a magical place where everything flowed away.Wondering of The Ocean5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She only went to the beach alone, so people wouldn't ruin the ocean with their noises. Being alone made the ocean and everything around it magical. She barely went down to the beach in the day. In the day time it was easier to see the beauty of the ocean, but harder to stay away from people and not being seen.
At the night she could go to different places around the beach and the waters were like mystical notes, making music with the waves and the wind. Running on the sand was like flying in the dark blue sky, over the comforting blue waters, seeing every thing ahead of her. Sometimes she danced on the sand with water splashing and blowing on her.
The ocean was the only place where she was free.
It was summer, the time for her to get away from things she had no pleasure for. She never wanted to be around

Lost and alone in a dark, dark place, she was lonelier than lonely ever could be.
She would cry, and sniffle, and run and run and run
But, it was a never ending dark place, no matter how far, or how fast she ran, the end never came.
There was no light, nor life.
The little girl did not know what death was, but at that point would have gladly accepted it.
There was only one thing that could comfort her to some extent.
The little girl had the most beautiful dreams.
Dreams of candy, of life and love, of a well connected family.
Of music and books, of friends, sisters, and animals
But they were just dreams; she would wake to the cold reality of nothingness again, and cry.
One day, something appeared.
It was a white stick of some sort.
Curiosity prompted the little girl to pick it up.
The white stick was such a brilliant color, it burned her eyes.
Immediately, the little girl had an idea.
She touched the stick to the black nothingness.

I never know is it morning or dark
I never know is it a beauty or a failure
I never know which road I am treading on
I just know how to walk and walk
With all the rest of my power
And with my eyes closed
The wind blows my face gently
Brings me cold and chill to my ashen skin
Finally I find my own freedom
After so long I was a prisoner
Of my routines and boring days
But not anymore
The scent of flowers softly fills my lungs
With the aromas I never smell before
Sweet like the Scily Isles
But tender like roses
I believe there is a garden laid before me
But how far and how big
I never know
Lone grasses and dandelions gracefully touch my hand
Softly linger with my fingers
I can feel the softness of silk
And the comfort of cotton's fiber
I'm so happy
To find that my anguish and despair are gone
But then suddenly I stop
All the feelings disappear
I realize that my eyes are blind
