Teenage TaoismGiving birth is the closest I’d ever felt to dying.Teenage Taoism7 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Before that, my near death experiences had consisted only of my silent announcement of pregnancy—silent, being that my social media accounts were all deleted almost simultaneously and I never returned to school in the fall, saying without really saying that I had caught the malicious disease of “teenage pregnancy”. I’m sure the whisper spread in the hallways like the Bubonic Plague. That September, sitting at home on what would have been the first day of my senior year, I imagined friends I’d never talk to again saying “she was only seventeen, and so full of life!” at my absence in the cafeteria tables, as if they were attending my funeral instead of talking about me behind my back.
"Full of life," I had snorted then, folding a never ending stream of what had once been my own baby clothes. "Literally."
I walked around like a zombie for the months of my pregnancy, deciding t

sometimes i am cute,

‘cause I’m ‘comfortable’ and ‘big’

Scrisoare catre mineNu ma pot descrie. Nu-mi pot descrie sentimentele. Nu pot sa folosesc cuvinte atunci cand descriu, atunci cand analizez lumea din jur, atunci cand merg pe strada, prefer sa fie doar ganduri. Oricum o sa se piarda, am prea multe care le ocupa locurile. Nu am puterea de a vorbi in numele cuiva, insa as face-o in fiecare secunda, as indrepta greseli si as aduce moarte sperantelor. N-am puterea sa vad pe cineva trist si sa nu ii acord toata atentia, asa cum n-am puterea sa spun pur si simplu "Nu". Nu pot sa indur tacut si sa retraiesc in permanenta acelasi fir, si sa nu ma simt mai slabit si mai apus. Nu pot sa spun ce ar trebui, nu pot sa inghit cate ar trebui, nu am puterea sa fiu bun, nu pot, pur si simplu nu pot sa nu stric ziua cuiva. Simt in vene cum trebuie sa ma ambitionez sa ridic abisul la nivelul solului, dar nu pot. Nu reusesc sa fiu ceea ce vrei, de fiecare data cand incerc, realizez ca dau si mai mult gres. De fiecare data cand vreau, intervine ceva, ce ma face sa ma opresc.Scrisoare catre mine5 years ago in Emotional More Like This

Is there such a thing?
To see someone
And love them on whim.
Can you truly love one
Who you know nought about?
Is it really possible,
Is that what love's about?
Is love beauty, is it glamour
Is it make up and hair?
Is love fickle, a mere glance
And you heart takes the air?
I do not know
What love is to you,
But to me...
Love is more than you can see.

You use to tell me
everythig would be okay
You use to hold me
and wipe my tears away
You use to
take my hand
and tell me that
that I've been through
and that I could put
my trust in you
So many times you looked
into my eyes
and told me
nothing more than lies
So much bullshit
you had me believe
Like when you said
you'd never leave
And I trusted
every word you spoke
it was all a joke
I don't know how
I couldn't see
that you would soon
be leaving me
I was such a fool,
I should've known
that I would always
Because no one
can stand to be with me
All this time
I meant nothing to you
Wish I could forget
I ever knew you
I lost myself when you left that day
Because you swore we'd never sever
But I know now, it's true what they say...

Maid in Mansion - TGJames clutched the paper nervously, his steps small and nervous as he walked into the open mansion. The sound of his footsteps echoed through the hallways, and he swallowed, but kept going. He wondered again why he had chosen to answer the job for maid, blushing a deep red at the thought of their chosen outfit. The sound of the car driving away outside reminded him, however, and he grimaced at the thought of just how badly he needed the money.Maid in Mansion - TG5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Review of Chapter One
By Stephenie Meyer
Years have gone since I've first run into a little thing called Twilight and now I've come to the part of the getting over it and letting kids have their fun, but in all this I've decided to trudge through this pile of shit and actually reread it for the first time since I took an exacto knife and cut a hole out of my only -stolen- copy.
Please note that I'm doing this not only for my own closure, but for your entertainment. I am reading this. I am not enjoying it, but I also want to lay to rest every beef I have with Twilight. [Though just the first book, the others can rot in hell.]
Lastly, I'll probably be dropping a lot of F-bombs and various other angry letter bombs. Deal with it.
Now, on with the horror fest, where we start with the preface.
As plain as you can possibly get, the preface of Twilight says nothing while saying a whole god forsaken paragraph. The tone of the paragraph honestly reminds me of w
Viviter's Ruthless Years pt 5A few minutes later, he had managed to find enough dry wood for a safe fire. It wasn't easy to carry wood in his normal form, though. But he couldn't change because he might end up scaring her. Why he even cared about that, he didn't understand himself, but he just didn't want to. He went back to the cave and shook his body so the wood fell off his back. He arched his back and sighed. It was hard to get those pieces on his back, and then he had trouble keeping them there while walking. But now he just pushed the pieces inside with his head.Viviter's Ruthless Years pt 55 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Because not that long from now he would leave her here to going to travel again.

Julia looked in the mirror at 9 AM one morning
and frowned. She was of average height for her age, with
red hair down to her neck, freckles splattered all over
her tanned face, and a mild amount of muscle which she
gained from working on her father's farm.
Just like every other day of the week, it was
time for Julia to go through her morning chores. After
getting out of bed that morning, her first job was to
add some food to the hens' trough and then take a basket
and collect the eggs from the chickens' last night's
laying. Slipping her clothes and a pair of working boots,
she grabbed the basket by her bedroom door and set out to
begin her work.
The walk from the farmhouse to the chicken coop
was quite a little ways down the path. She decided to
organize her thoughts along the way. "Once I get there,"
she thought, "I'll need to walk around the coop instead
of heading straight towards the door. I wouldn't want to
startle the hens."
She was wise to think this;

If someone were to peer into inside, they would indeed spot a kitten. It was completely black with amber eyes, and such intelligence burned in those cat-eyes that it was almost eerie. This was indeed a very special kitten. But of course, not everyone saw it this way. An older man, appearing to be in his late forties, was staring down upon the little feline with skeptical eyes. His name was Thomas Ring and he wasnt exactly the nicest person you could meet.
He scoffed. Very special kitten? Pft, you look more like a common stray. He reached inside, plucking the kitten from within and dangling it by its scruff. The kitten mewled but did not struggle

I used to sit on the bathroom floor and whisper into the phone, never getting caught
You used to get caught all the time.
I recall that your voice used to be like honey to my ears.
And honey always tastes the sweetest on most days
Most days, I never tasted anything.
We walked home, sharing music and ideas for parties.
You suggested dark and light
Most likely for your moods.
There were bruises on your arms from all the trips and falls you went through.
I asked you if you needed help and you replied with-
"Not from someone like you."
Your eyes were always like a blood orange on Sundays.
You told me it was because you thought God wanted you to be that way
I knew why they were always like that.
Too many times you would say you loved me.
Your face would show that it was true
But your eyes were full of lies.
I can still remember back when you lost your dog.

I've never felt like this before.
I was venerable and scared, and the worst part- he knew it.
I looked into his eyes, and he into mine.
I felt a warmth spread throughout my entire body.
He put his arms around my waist and I knew I would be safe forever,
If only we could stay like this.
He slowly pulled me closer, closer, closer…
Until I could hear his slow steady breaths.
My heart was racing as I slowly fell into his embrace,
Surely he could hear it,
He should be able to feel it- my heart was pounding so hard!
Slowly and ever so gently he bent down.
Our lips met.
His lips were soft and tender,
Then his lips opened…
His tongue was warm and sweet on mine.
I felt as though the rest of the world had disappeared and it was just the two of us standing,
There on the path.
I dreaded the fact that we couldn't stay like this forever;
Lost in a kiss.
But too soon he pulled back, gently smiling-
He knew that it had been my first kiss.
I looked at him and I knew that I loved him;

You proved me wrong, how totally wrong, I was.
How swiftly you moved...into my life you came boldly!
You saved my life that night...saved me from becoming a statistic.

Or you might have glimpsed the hidden strength in my soul...

Not worthy of anything but your outrage and vengence...your eventual death.
