You may want to lay your head to rest
And shut your eyes
And shut your heart
And fall asleep
That once made you cry
You may be full
And voices that scream in the middle of the night
And empty shells of what once was hope
But you are also
And you there are so many things
You haven’t done
So many places
You haven’t been
So many laughs
So many tears
And you are made
And rainy afternoons
By the fireplace
And you are as beautiful
As the shooting stars you wish upon
And the angels you dream about at night
And the snowflakes falling on your fingertips
And all the landscapes were made for your eyes
The rain was made to caress your weary skin
And this world was made for you
For your lovely touch
And your curious gaze
And when you smile
The stars shine a little brighter

Sometimes the things that scare us most aren't works of fiction. More often than you would think they are the things that we have lived through. I'll share with you, whether you choose to believe me or not, one of those tales.
It was summer the first time it had happened. I was home alone that night. I was watching a favored show when the noise started. It was so soft and subtle at first that I hadn't really noticed it. It wasn't until the commercial break that I heard that soft tapping more fully.
Tap. Tap. Tap.
I still remember the way it sounded. It seemed to echo off the walls in that dark room before finding me again. I naturally thought I had just scared myself into hearing it. After all it was a scary program I had been watching. I still felt terribly uneasy but I shoved the feeling aside when the show had started again.
I didn't notice the noise again for the rest of the airing. By the end of the program I was content again and comfortable. I could fee
Game: How To Summon A Real Ghost(WARNING: Attempt at your own risk)Game: How To Summon A Real Ghost1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Let's play a game. I want you to make sure your door is closed and the lights are off. It should be as dark as possible. If you really feel bold then answer my questions every time I ask you something. It helps get into the right frame of mind. I'll wait a moment for you.
Are you ready?
I imagine since you are here you have always wondered what it would be like to see a real ghost. I don't mean the crap you get in the movies. None of that fake blood or cheesy makeup.
I mean a real ghost. I bet you thought it would be pretty cool right? I mean how many people really get that chance right? But have you ever really thought about it?
Well this game will give you the chance to see something real if you want to try it out. I've done it many times myself and have had pretty good results.
Most people think of ghosts in terms of small balls of light or white wispy smoke. I'll tell you first hand though it's nothing like that. It's a hell of a lot worse.

Project Gh0stHey there,Project Gh0st2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
So I'm far too sappy but I wanted to try something new. Since I've been sick for so long, I've been amazingly depressed. It's hard to live with illness but even harder when you don't have support. So here's my plan. I'm starting a new project today.
It's called Project Gh0st. Not so much to credit me or anything but instead to give the proper feel to it. The word itself really made me think. I wanted this project to be as simple as possible. I knew I wouldn't always know these people or be able to introduce myself. It's almost like having a ghost around so to speak. Someone who does something for another and who is never known but felt. The 0 replaces an o in this case because I think it adds, 1. to the feel and 2. to the idea that no one should be left feeling alone, hurt, forgotten, unappreciated, or anything of the like.
Here is what I plan to do:
1. I will find 5 people here on DA randomly and give them a little word of inspiration. Not the typical 'if you open yo

WheretheWildThingsAre AnalysisMany of you may be familiar with the tale of Where the wild Things Are. You probably read it at some point during your childhood or you most likely saw the 2009 film. To be sure, it's one of the most popular and beloved children's books to date and is still widely read in many households with young people. This popularity has led to many speculations about the book's nature. Some say there's a deeper meaning that belies the playful adventures of a young boy in a wolf suit. Others say it's nothing more than an entertaining and fanciful tale for youth. However, why would an adult write something as seemingly nonsensical as this? Very rarely is it for "entertainment's sake." Why a wolf suit? Why monsters? Why an island?WheretheWildThingsAre Analysis5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

Sonic the Hedgehog AnalysisIf there is one figure that constantly rivals the gaming world's Mario, it's Sonic.Sonic the Hedgehog Analysis5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
He's been running around for more than a few years and it's a wonder he hasn't aged at all. But surely a series as long-running as Sonic is bound to have a few dark secrets of its own, something that makes it more than a game or two where you pick up chao and run around in circles saving baby animals.
Many of you will noticed Sonic has not aged over the past 15 years. This is a representation of eternal youth and his constant running from place to place symbolizes the desire to never grow up and remain forever young. It also represents youth's irresponsibility and inability of the young to make lasting commitments. Likewise, Sonic's eternally smiling face and cocky attitude symbolize the overall cockiness of youth and the firm belief that he will never have to face the world of growing up or taking responsibility.
Sonic can also be seen to double as a metaphor for the elusiveness of the natural world.

Germany had already left to do training with his friend's Kiku and Feliciano, so she had an hour by herself. She rolled out of bed and landed flat on the floor, face up, staring at the ceiling. ______ wasn't very much like Ludwig at all, she was Prussia's friend when they met, a cousin to Francis and an acquaintance to Spain. She liked to party, play wingman, make jokes, and dance around. She didn't do much of that since she met Ludwig, but she was still so happy. Just knowing that she lived with him was enough to make her heart beat faster.
