The daisies burned in the sunlight. His hair fell into his eyes as the long grass swallowed him, devoured his bones. From his outstretched hands grew wildflowers, their pollen pooling in his palms.
The sweet air seemed to choke me as I lifted my voice to the sky.
"It's all right. I don't mind," he replied, eyes drifting into the haze of summer.
The day wore on.
His fingers scraped the kitchen table. I stole a furtive glance at their shadows. The evening entered, pale and lovely, like a ghostly sculpture, lightly dusted with twilight.
"Will you pay for it?"
"It can be fixed."
"No, it can't. Look at it." There were more shards than the fragments of sunlight scattered across the floor.
"All things can be fixed. Did you try?"
My heartbeat sped up and I remembered his foot on the accelerator, the rush of the landscape as it flew on the wind, the singing of the wheels against the tarmac. In the kitchen, the phone rang. It appeared that nobody was going to answer it.

LOVELESS Poem -Crisis Core-- LOVELESS Prologue -LOVELESS Poem -Crisis Core-6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When the war of the beasts brings about the worlds end
The goddess descends from the sky
Wings of light and dark spread afar
She guides us to bliss, her gift everlasting
- LOVELESS Act I -
Infinite in mystery is the gift of the goddess
We seek it thus, and take it to the sky
Ripples form on the waters surface
The wandering soul knows no rest
- LOVELESS Act II -
There is no hate, only joy
For you are beloved by the goddess
Hero of the dawn, Healer of worlds
Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul
Pride is lost
Wings stripped away, the end is nigh
- LOVELESS Act III -
My friend, do you fly away now?
To a world that abhors you and I?
All that awaits you is a somber morrow
No matter where the winds may blow
My friend, your desire
Is the bringer of life, the gift of the goddess
Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return
- LOVELESS Act IV -
My friend, the fates are cruel
There are no dreams, no honor remains
Love Academy! (Len X Reader) Chapter 4Love Academy! (Len X Reader) Chapter 41 year ago in Romance More Like This
The next few weeks went by in a blur. You began your practices with the Utauloids, Teto and Neru, and quickly learned what a witch Miku really was. Okay, tripping you in the hallway? Maybe that was an accident. But spilling an entire tray of sloppy joe into your lap? The diva queen was definitely trying to start a war.
"Don't let her," your new friend Neru would advise. "She's just picking for drama."
Teto had a different approach. "Smash her skull in! We'll go break her legs!"
You cram an orange wedge into your mouth and laugh as you muse over the idea. "Hey, is something going on between you and Len?"
"Hmm whaaa?" Your trio all turns towards the two girls sliding their trays onto your table. "Aren't you two Vocaloids?" you ask.
Gumi and Rin. You would never admit it since she'd never done anything to you, but Len's sister kind of got under your skin. You hadn't even known that he had his sister until she and Miku came knocking on your dorm room door.
Rin shrugs, choosing not to talk.
Christian Persecution in the USAA lot of Christians seem to be fond of crying about the oppression they experience in American society. My first response is to laugh, but a lot of these people take themselves very seriously so I feel like I should give them a semi-serious answer to some of the claims I've heard. By "semi-serious", I mean I will include some facts but I will still have a deriding attitude. I can only try so hard. Now usually, I don't like formatting a question-answer session against an imaginary opponent since it seems unfair, but this isn't really an imaginary opponent. All of these statements or questions have been put to me before so, as far as I'm concerned, they are fair game.Christian Persecution in the USA2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

Honey, this is America. Christians are the vast majority in this country. A 2007 poll places the percentage at 78.4% Christian . The vast majority of our politicians and even our president identifies as Christian. The fact that people were
Drop My Heart And Hope To DieWith strength of steelDrop My Heart And Hope To Die2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Your words impale
You gut me
And to no avail
I try to hold
My bleeding heart
It's death to thwart
But holding tightly
Is in vain
It only magnifies
I drop my heart
And hope to die
I know, not, why...
With lightening force
Your eyes attack
Years of love
Now burnt and black
Of nothing more
Than brittle mem'ries
When was it
At first you knew
I was no longer
"It" for you
And how, this secret,
Could you keep
Then hold me tight
And drift to sleep
Something Quite Peculiar - Chapter 01Something Quite Peculiar - Chapter 012 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Chapter One: Reminiscing
The cabin could barely be called a cabin. It was more of a hut: a building in the loosest sense of the word. It had four walls and a roof, a door, a window, and a chimney that looked as though it were ready to fall over. Truthfully, it appeared that a strong gust of wind could knock down the shack, with signs surrounding which read, “Condemned” and “No Trespassing.”
The small structure was concealed behind several large trees, and was incredibly easy to miss, nestled within the forest that rarely anyone ventured into.
It was always snowing around this cabin, regardless of the season.
Inside was exceedingly less interesting than outside, if at all possible. There was only one room, which contained a mattress and pillow in the corner, a fireplace that appeared to have not been used in decades, and a few shelves on one of the walls.
The shelves proved to be at least somewhat intriguing, containing items such as a matryoshka do
MYTHODEA ~ Dark Night of SoulMYTHODEA ~ Dark Night of Soul3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the labyrinth of darkest dreams, I am the pitch
of coldest night
In the solace of the blackest dawn I seek you
Where unblinking eyes sojourn in forests wild,
the kiss of ash and sanguine bespeaks
Whispers of a thousand skies rust and fall
The syrup of the gloaming hums thru the trees..
Obsidian mists bejewel the hunger of my soul,
like silhouettes dissolving into the poise of talons
In murk of scorched grove, Witches tears drip from
the leaves caressing the tip of my tongue
Acrid winds scented by forbidden incantations,
slither deep into the prelude of Love's sacrament
In shallow of ebon fields I bask in beautiful decay,
as black roses drift in ballads of nocturnal reverie
Beneath the providence of dark stars, I am the river;
the ink which you lust mystic poison & naked flesh
Undress thy ache upon sable breath, drink my gaze
Covet my shadow, unto forever you shall drown

You were on your way home from tuition, and were really hungry. In an attempt to ignore the pangs of hunger which are driving you nuts, you stuffed an ear bud in your right ear and turned your mp3 player on. (Insert favourite Kagamine Len song) was playing in your ear and you hummed along to the lyrics. You adored the little banana loving blonde, and sometimes hoped that you would be able to meet him. But you knew that that was impossible. An ordinary girl like you, juggling between a school-girl life and writing fan-fictions , doesn't make it likely that you would even see him on stage. You were too busy that last time your friend ___(f/n)___ invited you to go to the Vocaloids' concert, you weren't able to go.
Reaching the bus stop, you checked the bus schedules. Damn. You had just missed the bus to (insert street). Thank you, hungry stomach, you thought to yourself. Taking a bottle of mineral water out from your sling bag which was packed with
