The wallsWalls of fear and anger well up around me.The walls3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Growing taller and taller.
Reaching the sky, and mingling with the smog,
That bellows forth from the factory where my
peace of mind is being burned.
I huddle in the center of my prison.
I collect the bits and pieces of my soul,
That are not broken.
That can be salvaged.
I bite my lip so hard, that I taste blood.
There is something inside me.
I want to be free of this monster.
The one that knows everything.
The one that laughs at my
feeble attempts to be strong.
The walls never waver.
They stand, a looming presence.
An impending doom.
Each brick built out of insecurities,
Moments in my life where I have failed.
Thunder crashes and rain pours,
as the walls continue to grow.
Like a sick flower, they bloom.
Blocking out the light.
Light which gives me strength.
I feel a pressure in my chest.
A pain in my heart.
An agony in my thoughts.
The realization that I am alone.
I scream so loud, that my lungs collapse.
I am dead to this world.
Astraymy mind is goneAstray1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
and my heart has been lost
a shell that aimlessly wonders
hoping something will wash the somber
they call to me
so loud I can’t concentrate
it rings through my head
making life impossible to focus
what am I doing
why aren’t you here
always throwing my life away
to start again for another play
but it is not a game
I know that rhythm
and it no longer beats
so far I have run
just to watch it repeat
the pain resonates
within my heart I begin to die
from so far away
please come back to me some day
I cannot continue to love from a distance
but all I feel is this deep resistance
I mustn’t let go
to fall further out of control
where can I grasp hold
to keep within this world, just a little more
She is further away
the echo cannot reach me, it already fades
and my mind is gone
since my heart has been lost

He quickly organised a plan for the perfect prank. Just because he was shy didnt mean he was quite the prankster. He was only afraid of hurting people, so he worked hard on his new project to make sure that it was completely harmless and would only last till the end of April 1st.
He worked on messing with his nanites and figuring out how to use them for his secret plot. He tryed as hard as he could at hiding his plan from everyone.
It was not to long until he had perfected his prank. His plan was to sneak into all the bathrooms in the school and plant his nanites on all of the toilets. Seeing as they were self replicating. The nanites could affect more than one person but never someone twice. The nanites would then all sel

You'll be my prey

I'll tear you apart
I'll ravish your body

I'll be your naughty,

I crave to touch you, crave to mark you with my name,
I want to explore you so don't be ashamed.
I will love you with passion,
I will be so gently rough,
that you'll be screaming my name at top of your lungs.
But we're not making love so don't be mistaken,
we're just playing game to take and to be taken.
Home SickIt was a stormy day at the academy so Dakota was going to spend her time in the library but that changed the moment she opened the door.

Dakota was searching for her next class but seemed to have taken a wrong turn. Once again the cat was lost in the school. Wishing she had a map, Dakota tried to find a hall she remembered. In no rush since she was going to be late anyway, she wondered down hall after hall. The girl's ears flattened and she let out a heavy sigh then the bell rang for class to end. Another missed class. Maybe the teachers would give her a break. The school was easy to get lost in after all. And it wasn't like she was skipping on purpose.
Not knowing what else to do, Dakota tried to find her way back to her room. She could use a snack before trying to find her next class. Asking a few passing people, Dakota followed their directions but ended up walking in circles. Dizzy, Dakota stopped and leaned against the wall to relax. Taking a deep breath, the cat laid her ears back. How could she be the only cat with no sense of direction? It couldn't be that hard to find her way to her room yet it was. Some new st

how annoying they can be
But have you ever wondered
what they say about us?

Ot how beaks would be the

Maybe how feathers need

Pigeons might even make jokes
How hair is overrated
That birdseed is the best
We may never know what

Though this is fun to think

Its the small things around me
The little moments, of peace
The smile as we come to know the world;
Dead and cruel
The path we choose
So care free, nothing to loose
One step at a time
Obstacles mean nothing, all is left in sublime
Innocent born into sin
Almost like a test
To see who'll win
Like baby birds from the nest
Its a strange world
Too young, with much experience
So naive to the absurd
In each generation, we see the carnage

A scream filled Dakota's room. A few people stopped and stared at the closed door or whispered to other's if they should see if she was alright. Suddenly the door opened and a male cat in Dakota's clothes ran out in a panic. Everyone stared in shock. No one not invited to the island was allowed to enter yet before their eyes was an unknown student. His cat ears flattened as he looked around shocked. No one could believe what was going on so one of the students stepped up to the unknown male.
“Hey, are you alright?” Andrew asked.
“Does it look like I'm alright? I'm a guy!”
“Well yeah you are a guy.”
The cat hissed and ran off. Everyone who spotted the cat, stopped and stared in shock. The clothes hung from his body, only a belt keeping the pants on his frame. That's when other's started freaking out. Freezing, the cat lifted it's ears and ran for the screams. People flooded from the bathroom in a panic. The cat thought they resembled people just the w

Shion, Kuro, Ineen, Averlon, Issac, Alex and Jason were just a few of many to help the cat in her time of need. They were a lot of fun to work with. Each teaching her something new. From different fighting techniques and stances to different ways to defend herself. Kauz and Samusagi were kind enough to help the cat learn how to transform into her monster form and how to control it.

Written Down In WordsMy heart goes out to those children who have been wrongedWritten Down In Words6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
By their very own parents who asked them to be strong.
The same parents who taught them from a young age to read
When they themselves hide behind selfish masks only to mislead.
One can seethe within when one sees a child enslaved
In a country bearing people less fortunate than oneself.
But can one not turn to the life one has paved
For one's very own children who are granted no liberty for themselves?
It is all very well to press adulthood onto one's children
And entrapping them into one's own ideals until they go wild.
But be prepared to take responsibility if the children then rebel,
As you cannot be an adult until you have lived as a child.

I hope I get to sleep before it comes. I whisper into the now quiet darkness. The only reply was the wind starting to pick up and early rain coating the house. I sigh and try harder to find sleep, my escape.
Just as sleep was about to take me, a bolt of lightning struck outside my window. I jolted awake and my heart immediately accelerated. It made me even more tired. Suddenly I felt like I was being watched. I slowly turned around to face the rest of my room. At first I didnt see anything, but after a few seconds, I saw something in my computer chair.
My heart accelerated even more. My breathing came faster and faster. I didnt know what I was looking at but it seemed equally as scared. I sat straight up with my eyes wide. The scream that I wanted came ou

A rather unusual trait
I ponder in silence then ponder some more
All the while sitting here on the floor
As I sit and think of serious matters
Like lies and ties and very mad hatters
A penny appears in my sight
Illuminated by moonlight
I hold it and turn it then turn it again
And I wonder where it has been
Has it been to China?
Spent in a diner?
Has it been to France?
Or has it not had that chance,
Has it been to Australia?
Or trembled with thunder?
And so so much more
And as I look down I wonder
How did it get on my floor?

As the lonely meadow moaned,
You said, "We can't coexsist."
I didn't have to ask why.
The ansewer was already
poison to my lips.
Dreading every minute after,
Fell swiftly into it all, running.
Never taking a second to rest.
Having no need to catch my breath.
For if I stopped, it would be the end.
No time, to spin another web.
No time, to catch another cab.
No time, to sware on the moonlight.
No time, to inhale the skies.
Only time, to coexisist with something
that would destroy us both.
Some perilious blade, that never missed.
Cancer, bate, to all alchemist fools.
Depression, that led beyond sunken eyes
and talking walls.
Disappearing acts, that proved Houdini was a sham.
Mysteries, so stunning, that Sherlock would never solve.
