UntitledShe lifted my limp body from the wreckage with tears in her eyes. My wings were torn off and their stems bleeding, I had lacerations across my chest and face, my arms, my back and my legs, my entire body. I was half dead. I fell from the glowing amber sky, vapid with grey brown clouds, no sun in sight, from the destruction and fighting high above. I fell straight down, I had no strength and I could not do anything else, my body was tired.Untitled12 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The explosion knocked me unconcious. I woke up shortly after, probably a few seconds, it was only a black out, but I was paralyzed. Wether I actually was or not, or wether I was too weak, or too mentally destroyed to give any effort, I don't know, but I was falling, and the blast that sent me was not far above me, as I saw it blurred and skewed through the red liquid fog clouding my eyes from the inside. I could not move and she was above me, all I could do was watch. It was a battle of the ages, all of them, fighting, destroying ripping shr

But nobody is happy. Nobody wants to live in this place.
They all smile, they all talk, laugh... but it's all a charade, the mask of living a life which has no meaning. Wrinkles in which the world struggles to abolish are all over... around their eyes, in their cheeks, and covering their hands, they take over the person.

Life of a "Goth"…?
You see me in the corner, huddled in a ball,
Me and all my friends loiter at the mall.
I pretend to like knives and drag them on my skin,
Just enough to make a drop of blood come from within.
Only a light scar, but dark enough to see,
To show off just how suicidal I can be.
I draw stars inside circles on my hand,
I don't know what it means, but it's the symbol of my band.
In my metal group, I play my bass,
And I use black eyeliner to draw three sixes on my face.
I can't gauge my ear, so my earring isn't real,
I'm so depressed; no one knows how I feel.
I write pathetic poems about how I hate my family,
I can't do what I want and they'll never understand me.
I buy my clothes from Hot Topic because it's cool,
Even though I have friends, I choose to sit by myself in school.
The other black-haired kids call me a poser and a mistake,
But they're not like me because I'm Goth, and they're the ones who are Fake.
Don't Hold Your BreathWhen you inhale deeply,Don't Hold Your Breath9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The shore pulls back from the water,
And in the cresting exhalation
My heart is washed away in your sigh.
When you inhale sharply,
And I see fire spark on you tongue,
I pull myself in for a kiss
To smother the scream.
When you inhale shortly,
And your body quakes,
I hold you close to me,
Away from the cracks in your sobs.
But when I can't hear your soft breaths
I wonder how you feel,
And if you do.
And I kiss air back into you.

The night is peace, the night is quiet.
The trees are swaying, in rhythm with the wind,
Crushing within your soul, the restless riot.
Darkness is closing in around you.
The Darkness in your soul has found you.
Thump. Your heart is beating fast.
Stealing into your fragile mind,
Creeping into your helpless heart.
So silent, so stealthy.
Slowly taking over your life.
Softly, Silently, Quietly.
Stealing into you.
Thump. Thump. Thump.
Unconscious cries emit from your soul.
Helpless against the faceless fears.
The approaching Darkness swallows you whole.

The rough calloused texture of them made her senses jumble at the contact they shared.
Without a word he lifted her easily and righted her with all her canvases.
Their eyes met. It was like warm chocolate eyes to honey ones in a staring contest no mother could have won against her child.
All she could think of were those hands and those chocolate eyes.
What could he have done to merit such scars? What could this gentle eyed person have done to have hands that were worn from working?
Fuya blushed at his intent gaze. Her thank-you passed through his you're-welcome-gaze making her smile through her blushing.
"What?" he finally spoke. The words were like a deep far away thunder, rumbling its way towards her. She felt the words tumble through her and the hair on her body perk up at the sensation.

In her eyes lie un-shed tears.
In her eyes lie the broken wings,
The pain she knew would come by.
On her tongue lies so many words,
On her lips lie so many thoughts.
On her mind there are things unheard,
In her heart, the pain it brought.
She hates herself, she tries not to,
But she can't help it, she just does.
She wishes they had never met,
That their hearts had never touched.
But they did, and they have,
And still in her heart,
She's so glad for that,
But not glad to depart.....

Where you're real, and our wish is fulfilled,
Let's pretend once more that this will be,
And together, our hearts may be healed.
