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.Untitled11 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

They hurt us, we love it.

We lie. We cheat. We drink, and we steal.

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.

Powerful guns that owned

To escape to an island,
And here I am;
Alone on an island,
With a War(I)saw from afar…
And a gun I withdraw
Which I sometimes call talk.

On her lips lie so many thoughts.

In her heart, the pain it brought.

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.....

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.
