To wait alone.
Here's the truth,
My cover blown.
I cannot sleep,
Or stay awake.
There's more caffeine,
And pills to take.
Up and down
Here I go.
Please release me,
Far from here.
From every loved one,
I once held dear.
Are no less scary,
When I'm grown.
Under my bed.
Was truly real,
I wasn't mislead.
I wish you'd stay,
But I know you'll leave.
My heart deceived.
I'm too afraid,
To stay awake.
There's more caffeine,
And pills to take.

wanting to be in
when Im out
to feel the wind
in my whiskers
but also have security
in the house
I want to play
with my mouse
and eat it too
have a reliable supply
of my favourite food
to be caressed
and loved by all
to be told that
Im a good girl
and that Im the best
cat in the world
I will purr and beg for you
but only when I want to
I prefer to spend
most of my time alone
but dont let that fool you
I still need others
just dont want to feel owned.
How to Design complex characters using core beliefHow to Design complex characters using core belief9 years ago in Editorial More Like This
A character is basically formed by three things: Personality, Beliefs, History
After designing the character's story and personality, what will help them stay in character is designing the layers of their core beliefs.
The key thing is, these core beliefs are never, ever spoken by the character themselves. They just behave in this belief like it's normal and not even think it's there.
Of course you can still choose to have them say it, they will just be a simpler open book type character. Or say it partially hiding its true statement, you can also use a character's core belief statement to make it a story statement if you see fit.
A core belief system is the thing that will make the character see the world around them differently from one another; thus making their judgement and decisions differently as well.
Everyone (real people) operates this way. Core belief can be formed as early as babies. So watch out of the kids.
After the first layer of core belief is formed, the

Irrational fears and imaginary barricades

Compelled to pull and peel dry, dead skin

I see people sing and dance, happy in their parade
while I stand in the side line, pulling the pin

Nobody wants me.
Nobody loves me.

Where's my line?

Nothing's gone wrong...
Why do I feel so down?

Where I'm fromI am from long struggles and angerWhere I'm from1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tears rolling down my face
From friends I've lost
From leaves that one day fall
I am from an unsolved mystery
The thrill of seeing it unfold slowly
Fingerprinting to DNA
Generations of people I don't know
I am from late nights
Coffee to ice
Black with no stars
The only light coming from my computer
I am from happiness to sadness
From ha to no
Joyous tears to bitter ones
I am from fear to braveness
From I can't do it to I can
Walking away to standing up
Turning my back
I am from low clouds
Rains pit pattering against the window
Chocolate that tastes sweet but turns bitter fast
Endless time going on as I speak
I am from a race
A race that keeps going
A race trampling on lost lives
The one with no end
I am from that determination
The determination everyone keeps talking about
You know, the ones with hopes and dreams
Determination to figure out who I am
Telling lies to telling truths
The kinds of lies that come naturally
Pressure and guilt

His mind was puzzled and no one gave them much attention spare for the occasional glance. Most kept to their own business.
Even on a freezing night like this, there were still people bustling around. The chill of midnight was settling in the great bones of the city, creaking and stretching silently. Ivan's ushanka easily shielded his ears from the blistering wind that came with flakes of cold and snow. The snow had come early this year and the cold was severe, but not the worst they had experienced. Certainly not for the nation.

how lovely she truly is

Hello! Welcome to my guide on the creation of a balanced, believable original character! Whether this is your first time creating a character and you want some advice on where to start, or you need to tweak your character, because you're unsatisfied with it, then you've come to the right place. In this guide you'll find details on the importance of every aspect of an OC, from something seemingly insignificant as the name to the powers of a character.
This guide can be applied to original characters of any fandom or purely of your creation for your own story! If your setting doesn't include some parts, like having abilities, you can simply skip over that section. Likewise, if I'm going into details on some specifics that don't apply to your character, feel free to skip over that as well.
Before I get into breaking down a character, let me first start off by asking you to do one thing. Get the term "Mary Sue" out of your head right now bef

Mystery GirlThere was something about her that I couldnt quite grasp. She had an air of mystery and such a mischievous look in her eye that I felt I just had to get closer to her. The dance floor was crowded and I waded through the sea of people, casually standing a couple metres away from her. I observed her as she talked to a couple people I assumed were her friends. Her dimpled, tooth filled smile seemed to brighten the room, at least from my perspective, and her red and blonde hair shone brightly under the flashing florescent lights.Mystery Girl7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Her hair was long, falling in careless waves over her shoulders and part way down her back. From what I could hear, her voice was deep and husky, and she laughed loudly; sometimes her hand would cover her mouth in what appeared to be modesty. I wondered if she had a shy side, although in that sort of environment it was hard to tell what anyone was really like. All I could do was obs
