Only the Good Die YoungTonight I leave youOnly the Good Die Young5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In tears, in memory, in fear.
But I will always be with you
Wherever you go, hiding in the Shadows.
Please do not forget me
As I work my way to the Gates.
So far away, I know this.
But this is my unchangeable fate.
Do not seek Vengeance on my behalf,
It will only do more harm.
We'll be alright, in the end you'll see.
In time we'll meet again.
For Christ's sake and mine, do not worry.
Because only the good die young.
Only the great rise above the others
And pay the forbidden price.
I love you all, you are my family.
As the Fallen, we shall rise.
I'll remember you in my heart foREVer,
For I won't see you tonight.

after you have left it.
We all saw the topic "Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan" and we all thought,
"What did he do this time?"
We continue to read the words,
"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts"
And our hearts also sink.
This could not be possible.
Of the five he seemed the most
First we think it could be a joke.
That the guys are messing with us, teasing us before the release of their new material.
Second, we are stunned, as are our bodies;
they quiver and our mouths hang open.
Overcome by the realization that this is no jest.
He is gone from this Earth.
Thirdly, we become either angry or
swollen with tears.
Our hearts plummet to our stomach, we hit things, we cry out, we vomit, we scream
Of the fourth, we become numb.
It's what creeps up our failing arms, our kicking legs
It's the pain in our throats from our tormented screams
It's the tears simply falling out and our useless hands that have no intention of wiping them
The LoraxI bumped into somethingThe Lorax7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Walking down a street one day;
A furry little creature
It looked so tired, so worn
I asked if I could help it on its way.
It would not accept,
though it thanked me kindly.
For it was the Lorax,
And, as he told me;
"I speak for the trees-
The bears, the birds, the bees
For they have no tongues.
But you people plunder us of trees,
Of land, food and shelter
My bears and birds, homeless
Die slowly from lack of these.
So I send them away
But you notice not,
No matter what I say;
And the number of my charges
Grows less every day."
He sat, sighing tiredly
"You can help me after all-
I wish to lean against that tree-"
And pointed to a pole
That was very close to me.
I told him what it was
He sighed again
Called himself a dunce
Then said "Well, no matter.
It was a tree-once."
So I propped him up
And we said our goodbyes;
Then walked away sadly
As the Lorax quietly died.
On a WindowsillI perch on your windowsillOn a Windowsill8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Long after you've drifted asleep,
When dusk has drunk its fill.
I posture as gargoyle,
Church-pew silent and stone-carved still,
Made mortal only by an evening breeze
Rustling aimlessly through
This suburban zoo
Of children's bikes and tended trees;
And as I watch the moon, and you,
I pose of her, "My lady fair,
Are you really so jealous of my view
That you must sit so pale, so far,
So stubbornly aloof-
When I think both of us know
The view is better from my roof."
But the moon is firefly breathless,
As she glowers, restless,
And the stars are all aglow.
And the stars are all aglow.
IsaacI saw your faceIsaac3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
in the post office
It was one of those
eight by elevens
with black lettering,
It was an old picture
as if your chin
had not grown up yet
and your hair
framed your cheeks
as if to say
I, too, am a visitor.
They spelled your name wrong -
there are two A's in Isaac
and you looked
like you had been caught
wearing someone else's skin -
the scar at your temple
was a faded moon,
crescent and grey at the corner
and I could tell
you had not slept

I am waiting for you little taffer
My scream, my laughter
Will frighten you ever after
Only once, look at my eyes
You can see where the death lies
Even If you manage to leave here
You won't be able to get rid of the fear
I don't care why did you come or how

Forbidden Final Chapter~One week later (Friday Afternoon)~Forbidden Final Chapter2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Finally, after one long week of being grounded, I finally was allowed to have Dahvie over. He went to school today, and it was the first time I got to see him since that one night. It was like one of those romantic movies, you know, the two don't see each other for awhile and once they meet eyes they run and jump into each others arms, then kiss deeply. I mean, it wasn't exactly like that, it was much more discrete of course. After school we walked together to my house, which is where we are now, silently laying on my bed lost in our own thoughts.
I hear him sigh on the other side as he stares at the ceiling, idly playing with his long dark hair.
"What's up?" I ask, sitting up and facing him.
"Huh? Nothing, just thinking," he says, sighing again at the end.
I eye him suspiciously, "thinking about what?"
He pulls himself up to sit up straight and shrugs. "I don't know everything. The future. Us. Just everything. Like what will I be doing in ten years?
Only Sleeping: AndleyI looked at his sleeping form from the doorway. Watching him sleep had always brought a smile to my lips, and it almost did even now. Then I remembered that he wasn't only sleeping. The one I love was in a coma, and had been for nearly two years. The doctors kept telling me I didn't need to come in everyday due to the fact that he wasn't likely to wake up anytime soon, but I didn't care I came to visit him every day anyway. He was there and I had to be here to help his unconscious self find him. One day he would wake up.Only Sleeping: Andley4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Nobody, not even the doctors, knew why he had fallen into a coma. They had thought maybe it had been due to stress, but they had said he would have woken up by now if that had been the cause.
I walked over to the hospital bed that held my baby and a tear rolled down my cheek. No matter how long I had to get used to this, seeing him lying there with all those wires hooked up to him was still enough to make me cry.
Sitting on the bed next to him I looked at the calendar.
Mistletoe: Andley"You know your family is probably going to wonder why you are bringing your best friend instead of a girlfriend." Ashley said spinning around in my desk chair as I got dressed.Mistletoe: Andley4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I pulled my shirt over my head. "I know Ash, but I won't be able to make it through this Christmas party without you."
"Even with me I'm not so sure we'll make it. Your parents have told me your family is a little homophobic."
"Believe me, I know. Why do you think no one but my parents know? If any of my cousins knew about it I would never be able to talk to them, or show my face, ever again. Please Ashley, just come with me and stay with me." I said and sat down in his lap wrapping my arm around his shoulders.
He wrapped his arms around my waist. "I never said I wouldn't, I just want you to know that they will probably see right through the best friend thing. I don't want you to get hurt."
"I know Ash, but if you're there being hurt won't be that bad."
He looked doubtful but I knew he would go

"(your name)! Your set was AWESOME!" He cried excitedly as you and him hug.
"Thanks CC," you smile widely. You pushed your (hair colour) bangs out of your eyes.
You glanced over to you crush, his blue eyes found your (eye colour) eyes. He smiled lightly at you as he made his way over to you. You felt a blush rise up, so you quickly run back towards your tour bus. Your bus driver looked at you oddly as you walk into the bunk area of the bus and fall down on your bunk. You rest against the pillow and grab a stuffed bear which you have had since you were a child.
"Hey, (your name)? Are you okay?" Your drummer, Ella, asked you as she climbed onto your bunk to join you.
"I don't know how to act around Andy..." You say quietly, "he probably thinks I am some crazy fangirl."
"No he doesn't! He knows you are shy," Ella said
Rebellion Love - AndleyFuck the day the status quo and any stupid pecking order were created. It is these things that keep any of us from expressing our true selves. Why am I complaining about this crap? My name is Andy Biersack, I'm 16 and a sophomore in high school, and I'm in love with the most popular guy in school. Only problem? I'm the little outcast goth kid trying to make a band, and he is the most wanted, the most popular guy at my pathetic school.Rebellion Love - Andley3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I slam my locker as my dangerous thoughts come out again. I slink through the halls to the last hour of the day, awaiting the moment to escape this hell. The only good thing about this hour is he's in it and since I sit behind him, I can glimpse at him without him knowing. I do that than pay attention to the teacher, because, I mean, come on. School is the last thing on my mind when I have a bigger future in my sight.
I slip into the room, just as the tardy bell rings, and slide into my seat, relatively unnoticed. Well, almost unnoticed, as I was
Innocent Javie 8I walked into the empty gym room. I knew Dahvie followed behind me because I could still hear him calling my name. I stepped under a light and it came on. Garrett came out of the dark and smiled at me.Innocent Javie 83 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Hey, beautiful. I didn't expect to see you here," he said trying to kiss me.
I pushed him away and growled, "Where's the guy who beat Dahvie?" Garrett frowned and the ringleader of all the stoners stepped forward. I saw him yesterday while we were in detention.
"What do you wanna know about it?" he demanded. I snarled and without a second's thought I jumped on him. I started punching him and that's when I saw other people surronding me. Two of them grabbed me and jerked me on my knees so the others could beat the shit out of me.
"Jayy no!" Dahvie screamed and I looked over to see Garrett grabbing him and holding him. Garrett whispered something in his ear and Dahvie's eyes grew wide.
The other guys punched me a few more times and Garrett barked, "Alright enough!"
The guys backed up and
