Sing the Sorrow.All alone, I play the tune-Sing the Sorrow.7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No one else to get me through-
Sing the sorrow, numb the pain,
The Music calls me once again.
Darkness blinds all will and thought-
Reckless is this war you've fought-
Blood was shed to free your mind,
And reason has been your demise.
Now sing the sorrow, numb your pain,
For Music calls you once again.
The stage was set, the play began-
In vain we make our thoughtless plans-
We stray far from the holy plot,
And go for all or go for naught.
Scripts were broken, scars remade,
We tried to live, and yet we fade.
We sing the sorrow, numb our pain,
As Music calls us once again.
Now seeing him, I dry my eyes-
The sacrifice makes me realize-
I may've been gone, but still draw breath,
And together we defeat Sir Death.
So take my hand, and don't let go-
We'll fight a different kind of foe.
'Twas here we fell, and here we stand-
Through the fire, I understand
He sings the sorrow, heals our pain,
And now he calls me once again.
A Spirit TornBeneath the veil formed by my mind,A Spirit Torn7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Beneath the shadowed guilt and shame,
Shall come a call of reckless kind,
A bane that wields my broken name.
A life to give, a debt to pay,
No second chance to make amends-
Not e'en to see the girl called Kaye,
Who dares to hope for Hades' end.
Not all is lost, nor is all tak'n-
But fear does not let off so free.
When mind is gone, and will is shak'n,
What purpose is there left to see?
When Death comes knocking at the door,
The sky to weep and waves to wail,
My sun and beacon are no more
To light the way of desprate tale.
Oh sing, ye nereids of the Sea!
Your voice, the song of spirit torn-
For yet may live the captives key,
And yet will rise the serpents thorn.
The Astonishing Fic TemplateExplanatory note: it has come to my attention that certain persons on the Internet want to be writers without ever having to do any actual, you know, writing.

"Hi, Phineas! Whatcha dooooooin'?"
"We haven't figured it out yet," replied Phineas, rubbing his chin. "I'm sure it'll come to us soon. I did have an idea for a new Nobel Prize category, but that's not something that can really be built."

A. Her belly was lying rather painfully on the lid of a two liter bottle and was covered in what felt like frosting, and
B. the presence of aforementioned "belly." She jumped out of bed, and promptly fell over, unaccustomed to the new weight different between her front and back. It was ridiculous, how large she had gotten over one night. Looking in the mirror, she turned sideways and surveyed the damage.
What she saw was nothing like her body had been 12 short hours ago. She had a belly that poofed out in front of her and hung down a teeny bit over the waistband of her pajama shorts. Her ass was chunkier, her thighs bigger, her tits were poofing out of her bra. She was at least 15 pounds heavier than she had been. When she saw her head's reflection when it was turned down, she had a small double chin! At least when she kept her head up it was barely noticible. It was impossible to have gained this much weig

Kaar, a small orange and black striped sabertooth tiger, looked down into the valley below him, his face impassive. It was early spring, and already the valley was full of newborn dinosaurs. Nests of pterodactyls lined the cliffs and below them, baby dinosaurs of every variety froliced, Triceratops good-humoredly butting at each other, Raptors playfully fighting, rolling around in the long grass, infant Brontosaurs timidly hiding behind their parents.
Kaar licked his lips. Traditionally this valley was the one place where baby dinosaurs of any species could be safe, where no other species would attack them for fear of what would happen to their own young, but Karr didn't much care for tradition. He knew that he was different from the other animals in this valley, so their traditions didn't apply to him. And he was hungry, very, very hungry.
As he watched, an infant Triceratops seperated itself from its her

Hiccup took a deep breath while adjusting his clothes once again, for that he especially didn't want to embarrass himself by tripping on his own fur cloak, even though he was wearing it properly from the back.
He turned around to face Toothless, and then the Viking could easily tell from the dragon's face that he knew the boy was worrying too much, and he should just sit down and relax with all of the time he had left to himself.
"Bud, I know what you're thinking, but I'm sure that if you were in my position, you wouldn't be feeling so calm the whole time, because what's about to happen for me is such a big deal!" Hiccup said.
Just right after he said that, Hiccup realized that he was actually getting a little too stressed out, and so he took another deep breath, but he still knew this day had a big event that's been planned for many weeks.
This event happened to be none other than Hiccup's wedding to Astrid, for which the ceremony would take place at a clearing somewhere in the forest

What can you do, though? I didnt have my first piano lesson until a few days later. Sounds of tinkling piano keys filled the room. Bassy notes caused the whole foundation to shake. It was a thing of beauty. It really was. Best part: It was me. I was playing it.
