Walks over to his side and hands him a love note
Then he points and laughs at her for the feelings she confessed
She feels emptiness as a heartbeat in her chest
At home she’ll water down her pain with broken pride
Trying to fix the girl who fell apart inside
Long hair and deep brown eyes so sad and full of tears
She’s not that different, but can’t fit in with her peers
They all have their looks and brand name clothes
Just because she doesn’t, she’s the girl nobody knows
And this goes out to her; I just hope that it’s enough
To let her know I see the diamond hidden in the rough

Each one reminding me what I had
Sometimes, I can’t stand it and I fall to my knees
I can’t believe I had perfection…
And I just let it slip away.
I wish I could tell you, but I don’t know what you’d say
You were my best friend, my everything
You were a part of me and I let you get away
So much for meaning every word that you say…
I wish I could tell you how right you were
I should’ve treated you better and been more mature
But you opened my eyes though it hurt me sometimes
To see how much we were falling apart…
Neither one of us tried; I wish you didn’t just leave
It kills me not knowing what I should feel
Or what to believe
But you probably won’t see this, not this time
And you’ll never know how much this has torn me apart…
Romano x Reader: I'm Drowning in Your LoveSalt stung your eyes and your lungs strained in fear. You never thought it would end this way. Far below the pale blue surface, you sank into the void. You felt so... depressed. So sad. Your strength seeped away from you and rose up with the bubbles that escaped your lips. Your heart was tight and your head spun with emotions.

You ran out into the water, it's cold waves lapped at your knees. You happily waved to Romano and Italy as they sat under the umbrella you all set up. The beach was peaceful and abandoned at this time of the day and with a cloudless sky, the sun slowly dipped beneath the horizon.
Italy smiled happily and laughed as you motioned your hand for him to join you. Romano though, stayed where he sat with out smiling. Romano's grumpy ways had never phased you, mainly because you knew he was genuinely kind and friendly when
Days of (Name) Chapter 2 FT HSAU Reader-insert For 20 minutes you continued to follow Cobra silently. You were completely disoriented by this. Too many thoughts were swimming in your head. About fairy tail, mom when she finds out you were late despite leaving an hour before school even started, it was a strange habit but you really liked the free time in the morning. A chilling thought ran through your head. Erza, if she found out you were talking to Erik… You shuddered at the thought. You look around you, taking in the new area. You saw teens in school uniforms walk past you. ‘Those look like Paradise Academy uniforms.’ You looked over to Erik and realized his pants were the same red color as the other boys’ pants.

Don't you see how it makes me feel?
Of course you don't

I act apathetic.
You're sad enough for the both of us

Your cage is all I've ever known.
Could I even survive on my own?

I tiptoe around your sensitivities.
What about me?
What about my life?

Because of the way my crystalline heart reflects light off its fractured surface
Well, that isn't a reflection
It’s rejection of the light because it’s all too much to handle
Throw myself away into the dark without even a candle
‘Cause I don’t want to recognize all the pain I’m in
Or realize the truth behind what I am or who I've been
And I tried to make things right but I just keep on making wrong
I never listened to the angel on my shoulder when she called
I count my tears like they’re experience
And my scars like they’re mysterious
And that’s a feeling I’ll remember –
Watching as you left
Watching as you ended what was meant to be forever
And I can see it in their eyes; everyone can empathize
So they say that I’m beautiful because they don’t know what else to say.
But if being broken is beautiful, then it’s the ugliest way...

I'll die with this smell on my lips
The smell of your silk hair
The smell of our laughs
Even from beyond, blinded by black sun
Through dazzling darkness
I'll see your shining smile.
Once my heart will hush
Into the deafening silence of death
Your cheerful voice like an echo.
My memories will sink into an endless void
Walking amid the lands of damned
Only your hand to guide my heavy steps.
Though sealed forever in my ebony coffin
The pain - stabbing the body I once had,
Tearing my soul apart, finishing my late brain off...
I'll howl silently, afraid that one day
You'll ever forget me.

"ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK". Dusky read the sign out loud. "Do you think it's safe to go in there?" She asked Alex, staring into the dark forest ahead of them. "Eh, why not?" Her friend Alex replied. "It's not like anything bad could happen, I mean what the worst you could think of?"
"Yeah...I guess Im just being paranoid..." She sighed. "Lets go on in, then."
As the two ignore the sign and enter the place where there were glowing mushrooms and the moonlight shining through the leaves, it all seemed not to dangerous. Alex was happy to see his friend dressed as a goth for a halloween party. Apparently this could potentially be a shortcut to the manor where the party was at.
"You look spooky tonight" Alex giggled. "Oh, do I really~?" Dusky snickered a bit before whipping her head around suddenly. "What was that? I thought I heard something..." Alex took no notice and continued deeper in, apparently eager to get to the party a

All the memories that pass,
How is it that we ever survived,
without each other by our sides?
We were once a family,
Now we are all scattered.
Lost in this cold empty field,
No one to ever help us out,
Watching the memories fade,
I call out your names,
One by one,
Hoping you all would just return.
Days fly by,
still no one by my side,
All the originality is gone,
Where did you all go?
Tears sting my eyes,
Why did it have to end like this?
No one has been back on these roads for so long,
You all are so far gone,
All I have left,
Is what is in my memories.
True BeautyBeauty never fades.True Beauty2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's our eyes that weaken-
our perceptions that change.
What's inside ignored
for the outer appearance.
The soul forsaken
to a cold nonexistence.
A time where beauty was the
love that was shared
and not in her stature-
her hair that was fair.
In her eyes the same glow
you'd once lost yourself in,
but you can no longer see-
never look again.
She has not lost her beauty
you've lost your soul;
for only without one
could hers be not seen-

Let the sun stain it with warmth and light,
Just so I could see
What it was like not to be so hollow and cold.
After a while, I took it down,
Tired of seeing how I could be
More in two dimensions
Than I am when my heart is beating in three
Moonlight DanceDance beneath the midnight's moon.Moonlight Dance2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Rid yourself of day's harsh gloom.
Pace among the illuminated night:
a wondrous vision,
a wondrous sight.
You move with the grace
of the wind as it blows,
moonlight's glamorous glow.
A slave to the freedom
that the darkness brings;
attuned to the sounds
that the darkness then sings.
It makes its own music
as your feet sweep its grounds.
In the night you can hide;
you cannot be found.
Sway in the presence of this
Take in the essence of the moon's
Make a new name
for the feelings inspired.
You live for the night,
and you never once tire.
So submit to the darkness
and move to moon's light,
as you dance to the song
of lunar white moon's delight.

The souls of my feet where cracked from the burning hot steps, my throat was so dry from the hot air but I still continued to walk as I felt the hot sun beating down on my skin as the breeze came through again slightly blowing my white dress that danced in the wind. In the distance was a clock that was always spinning as I would walk along the steps of time each step I took I watched a new eras form, the bloody wars, and generations of people who changed history.
People would come into this time line as I would watch many as they traveled on the same path I walk everyday except unlike me when they reach the end of their clock as they slowly faded away into the sands of time their exist fading into tiny pieces of sand along this eter

The same word repeated itself over, and over, and over, every time he saw the knife withdraw itself from his flesh, the pale white hand gripping it now stained with what he knew was his blood.
Liu would ask himself, with each red spurt, fountaining from his unmoving, damaged body, as the knife made a new sheathe somewhere it hadn't touched yet. His hands shook, fingers still wrapped firmly around the stained hoodie his brother said was his favorite, as the other loomed over him, another white hand covering his mouth as he spluttered fear and grief-stricken nonsense.
Once brilliant sky blue eyes were now filled with a clawing, feral desire to consume everything, and plunge it into darkness--a bottomless pit of rotted burnt ash black. He couldn't even see his own reflection in those eyes. He could not see his brother in those eyes…he had been lost, far too gone.

Hiccuping breaths accompanied by crimson-stained tears were all he could muster as he choked and wheezed, drowning in his own blood. The room was very bright this morning, painfully so.
Or perhaps it was the gashes across his face that ached…no, that would be the slices all along his arms, yeah, those hurt too…no, no…the deep stab wounds into his torso were probably the most painful…then again, it felt like some of his toes had been sliced clean off…
A finger twitched, just as the sound of screaming and frantic voices of men filled the hallway downstairs, the sounds of boots marching their way all around the house and up the stairs. Just as he felt the floor shaking and they came closer, finally, his eyes slipped shut.
He felt his lungs collapse under the weight of gravity one last time, before slipping into a world of nightmares.

Reasons Why I Dislike FeministsCurrently, the hashtag “Women Against Feminism” has been trending on social media, and it has created quite the on-line feminist backlash. Feminists have been left scratching their heads, wondering why women of all people would have a problem with feminism. Why would women be against people who claim to be “advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men”?Reasons Why I Dislike Feminists1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
If I had a dollar for every feminist who rebutted the phrase “I don’t like feminism” with “what do you have against equal rights for women?”, my wealth would rival that of Steve Jobs!
No, feminists, we do not have a problem with women wanting equal rights to men. Our problem is not with what feminists claim to stand for. Our problem is not with their positions. Our problem is with their words and actions.
You see, feminists, I don’t judge people based upon what they claim to stand for. If that were the case, I would take the word of R
