He pops back

Even a dream

And I realize
How weak he makes me
My heart beats like a drum,
my mind buzzes
He lingers more than smoke
And I breathe him in
But forget to exhale
Then he fades...

The day was humid, the sun was still high
While I waited for the gray mini van
Hundreds of colorful cars sped right on by
Finally they came; one red and one with tan
Both were hyper and fuzzy, a boy and a girl
With light brown eyes and noses of dark pink
The red stayed, while up his sister did curl
On a blanket alone; both small as mink
My puppy was brave and showed not his fear
For he whimpered only once before he slept
Agile was he, like all kinds of brother deer;
Only loving and he was never unkempt
Guarding me from things that were proved harmful,
Always there, my dear beloved dog Carmal

Blood stains painting my flesh,
The wounds deeper than ever before,
A white gown now a short black dress.
Long tangled hair clinging to my tears
Wind howling through the trees,
Moonlight painting a sky so clear,
And darling, I'm going to be set free.
My fingers scratch at the blood on my skin,
A delightful pain at the thought of a touch,
And hey, everyone who said I wasn't worth it,
Now am I good enough?

Sitting at a table counting money over and over was Kakuzu, the freak with five hearts. "Looks like we have another mouth to feed " he said bitterly, "You better not eat as much as Hidan or you'll just have to starve." He then turned away coldly, obsessing over the bills in his hand. "Grumpy old miser that was a waste of time. I take it he's the bounty collector?" I asked when we were out of earshot. The artist nodded, "Yeah. He makes all of the organization's investments and economical decisions hmm." We headed down the same corridor the immortal man had gone earlier. "Wait a minute; leader-sama told me to leave that guy alone," I said, slowing my steps. Being in the ANBU foundation for the past 3 years, I was reluctant to disobey orders. "It's better to have you meet him now and know what to expect from him. You'll thank me later hmm," he said, lowering his voice as we neared a door. I had to cover my nose again due to the increasing scent of fresh blood. "Doesn't it bug yo

I may change, sometimes for the worst.
What's normal to me is not normal for you.
Sometimes I just do what I need to do.
Behind a brick wall, I hoped someone would break it
I threw out my heart hoping someone would take it.
But I got tired of hiding and tired of hating
And instead of throwing myself at every guy, I'm waiting.
I'm sick of the person I tried to be
So basically, here I am, I will be me
I'm sick of the hatred, would you not agree?
.. Basically I'm sick of society.

Sasori was waiting for us outside, grumbling that we had kept him waiting. "Let's go! You two love birds have kept me waiting long enough," the red head growled, turning toward the path. My mouth hung open in shock from the puppet's blunt words. " what the hell did you just say?!" I asked, feeling my cheeks turn red. "It's obvious, isn't it?

After we had circled four times, Deidara sighed, "Damn jinchuuriki it's going to take us a while to find her if she's even here hmm." "Why do you curse the ones possessed by evil manidoog?" I asked. "They should know their place, but they think they're human hmm," he answered. Still confused, I said, "That doesn't explain why you don't like them." "I don't know they're lesser beings hmm," he shrugged. "They can't help it. Elders choose who's to carry the burden, regardless of whether or not they want to," I pointed out.

A small purple thunderhead discreetly floated over his head, casting a slight shadow. I smiled up at him mischievously and said, "Goodnight, Fish stick." He blinked in confusion and was able to swing his sword one last time. "What the he-" he started to say.
The second he started to speak, I sent multiple flashes of lightening through his body and watched him fall heavily to the cold ground. The shark man was stiff as a floor board and miniscule charges of electricity would periodically jolt through his cloak. He was no where near dead, he was just unable to move. "Why didn't Samheda absorb your chakra?" he asked, grimacing as lightening coursed through him again. "Because there wasn't any chakra in the lightening itself.

Name: Stellara Nagareboshi
Village: Konohagakure (Leaf)
Clan: One of the oldest clans in Konoha, though the clans' power has been long since forgotten. When I was 4 years old, a man named Satoru murdered my clan with a jutsu that cost him his life. He felt that the Nagareboshi (Shooting Star) clan was getting too powerful. I was spared because the jutsu ended before he found me. He was from the Hidden Sound Village, and was considered Orochimaru's prodigy.
Clan History: Long ago, the very first of my ancestors, Lady Hotoru, wished upon the first star to shoot across the night sky. The Shooting Star clan has the power to- Shapeshift, control anyone's actions, manipulate weather, and control the elements.
Those who knew nothing of the massacre made up stories to explain it. A rumor was spread that the reason I was spared was because my chakra was even more ominous than that of Satoru.
Main Story: The village gates closed for the last time that day

“Well, this isn’t very much of a holly jolly Christmas” the loopy carnie-like creature called Ringmaster moped. The big top that had been set up in Alpenview’s central park was unpleasantly frigid, and Ringmaster silently cursed the absence of insulation inherently present in the tent’s canvas structure. “As a matter of fact, I feel a distinct lack of holliness and jolliness up in this…general vicinity. Ahem. We need to do something about this.”
“Like what?” one of his bodyguard clowns gurgled, through a throat ruined from an abortive experiment in fire-breathing that Ringmaster had overseen.
Ringmaster spun around on his heel and stared down the clown, an expression of uncommon determination and zeal evident in his googly eyes.
“I have no idea” he said in a very inappropriately determined tone. “Wait, no, I do have an idea! We’ll put on a show!”

It was raining. And that was an understatement. It was absolutely kicking it down. And Cain and Abel managed to find shelter in the doorway of a closed store. There wasnt very much room, so they were forced to stand very close together, which made Abel rather embarrassed and uncomfortable.
Cain pushed up the sleeve of his leather jacket, looking at the watch on his wrist as the time ticked by with the heavy pitter patter of rain.
So much for dinner, he grumbled, causing Abels face to flush with the reminder that the weather had ruined their rare occasion.

Sunny skies and lullabies and dreams of what could be
Hidden worlds and wonderlands of things they couldn't see
Shining gowns and silver crowns for dancing with the prince
Twirling with excitement, though the others weren't convinced
Dear intimidation, did you find it to be true
All I ever needed was an overdose of you
Silly stares and laughter slowly flood a child's mind
Making me abandon every daydream I could find
Lost beneath the shadows of the sky so dark and dead
Far too weak to turn around, yet scared of things ahead
Dear destructive tendencies, I feel it's time to hear
You were all I had when nothing else seemed to be near
Everything so out of reach, too far for me to see
I decided I would choose the needle next to me
Slicing through my very skin to feel something once more
Weeping through the satisfaction I could not ignore
Dear imagination, can't you be the thing you were?
