The FlyThere was a dead fly in my bath.The Fly6 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
I did not like this much because it meant that I would have to scoop it out with my bare hands and it might've touched me, which would've been even worse, because it could have been hoarding around a whole list of deadly diseases and who knows what else.
Hello, it said, as though surprised to see me.
Hello, I replied, eying it.
I'm dying, it said.
I know, I mumbled. I'm sorry. (What else could I say?)
It's not a good way to go, it continued. Drowning, that is. In fact, it's rather terrible.
I nodded patiently. These were, after all, its last words, and I thought I ought to pay respect to it. All things great and small, and all that.
You see, it said, once the water seeps into your lungs, you start coughing, and then you can't get it out, so you're sick. Now, not that I'm unaccustomed to being sick actually, I do it quite a bit but it's never a pleasant experience, especially when you're dying. Anyway, after you're sick, you choke on that a

It was a very long time ago is all that I can tell you. In this eternal darkness all that I have are memories of childhood joy when she used to dress me in little pretty dresses adorned with lace, or whenever she used to brush my long silky hair.. But those days are now past.. Only memories remain... The memories make the air cold and leave a weight on the soul. They haunt this never ending darkness only to torture me with the dismal reminders of happier days.Personification6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

I saw light flood through the cracks of my tomb and then.... The lid opened and there was a face.... The face of the little girl who abandoned me to grow up...

CalamitySave me from my own calamity,Calamity5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
It's eating up my sanity.
They found me on the bathroom floor,
I just can't see straight anymore.
This pounding in my ears
Is sounding out my fears.
My hands begin to tremble
As I try to reassemble
All the words you didn't even say
I heard them clearly anyway.
Maybe this is for the best,
Or maybe just... a clever jest.
I've put my heart up on a shelf,
I can't get it back all by myself.
No one left to take it down,
Or here to save me when I drown.
Tears just fall like acid rain,
Burning holes into my brain.
Blotting out my memory
And tearing down my armory.
I am my own calamity,
I'll waste away my sanity,
Drink it up until it's gone,
Time to put my mask back on.
None will know about the pain,
I'll stand alone out in the rain.
Broken shelter, falling down,
All my defenses on the ground.
I can't hear... my heart is screaming.
I can't see, the tears are streaming
Around the clock, down to the floor,
Down the block and to your door.

Oh, how I wish
we could be together!
My heart bleeds to tell you,
my mind screams out: "No!
If you ever did tell her,
then she would GO!
She wouldn't understand!
She couldn't, not ever!"
How could I feel this? Why must I love HER?
We were so happy with how we felt for each-other!
No, that's not true, it was SHE who happy.
Content just being Just Friends with Just Me.
I was in pain, every step of the way,
when she'd come to me,
and then she would say:
"Ive met a new guy,
come and see, come and see!"
I'd smile, and joke. "I'm happy" I'd play.
"You seem nice, treat her right,
or you'll pay." I would say.
If she's happy, I'm happy,
(for her, can't you see?),
cause I know, deep inside,
she could never love me.
Not for Us, not for We,
it can't ever be.
It's not right, it's not fair.
It's just life, it's just there.
There's no We, There's no Us.
No future, no hope.
No sweet tender moments,
no hurts I can hold.
There's Just Her, And Just Me,
Narrative PoemOut from the night and the shadows steps a figure,Narrative Poem6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nobody really knows his name for sure.
He wears a top hat and a cloak made of velvet,
The inside lined with the blood of innocents.
Whenever he walks the streets at night,
You better run in fright.
He doesn't care
Why you are there
He'll just rip the still beating heart from your chest!
You can try to run and hide in a place that you know best,
But it is useless and only gives him thrill,
And when he finds you the only thing you will feel is a chill.
And as the glint of his knife flashes in your eye,
You will see that everything you know is a lie!

In the long curling red
Ill be the one standing alone again
Break me away from this darkness
The words you speak
Those long, lost fatal words fading in the darkness
Following what you left inside in my soul
For you I cannot erase
What I ignore
Time stands for you
And I throw will this all away
Running away in the sin covered road
The clock ticks on the wall
Suppressed by the memories
Turning back time
So I can be left behind
ConfessionSasuke had been dragged out to lunch with his rival/best friend and after watching his friend slurp down the tenth bowl of ramen he decided it was time to leave, he paid and walked out from the stand. When he was almost at the bridge, where they usually met up, Naruto had noticed that he had left and had come running after him.

"You" He let the word sink in for a second as he stopped mid step, slowly turning towards his friend not really sure if he had actually heard correctly, Naruto just stood there, with a big grin upon his face and he could feel the blood rushing up in his face.

Hold you so close to me just one last time.

Every ray of sun that shines,

And filled our hearts.
Hundreds of balloons to fill the sky,
Just to know that you're smiling down upon the world.

She was told she was ulgy,
thw words stabbing through her destroyed self-confidence,
letting her personality bleed out, and losing all self-worth,
alone in a world full of judgement.
The pain to walk into a room,
where nobody wanted you,
was often too much for her to take,
she would do anything to escape,
the hate, fear and rejection of it all.
Not existing to others simply drove her mad,
as one once said that no man is an island.
Look at the tears hitting her face like a torrential rainstorm.

not giving her the time of day.
She walks with a broken spirit,
just going throught the motions,
couting down each moment,
until she can run to her room,
and find comfort in her tender pillows,
drenching them with tears.
How much longer she wonders,
will her torment last?
When will her pain end?
All she really needs is a friend,
one to hold her hand and dry her many tears up.
will that friend come?
She wears a mask of spirit and joy,
so her family won't know,

We never talk anymore.
We can swap souls and daydreams.
Mine are precious to me,
You can have them as a gift.
Yours are mysterious,
I want to know more.
We should be going somewhere.
Our feet may ache with stubborness.
Mine worn out and sore,
From waiting at windows.
Yours wrapped in trainers,
Tired and practical.
The world comes and goes.
But we can sit and watch and wait.
I'll lean back in your arms,
They'll fit perfectly.
You'll hold on,
Or at least, I hope you would.

Walking so gracefully
One carefully step after another
Her hair blowing softly in the ocean breeze
She's like a ballerina, tall and slender
She watches her feet
Not noticing you
You and I both see her drop something into the sand
Instantly, you jump up and hand it to her
She looks up at you with her big brown eyes
And flashes you a perfect smile, even and white
She thanks you in the sweetest voice
I study your motions carefully
and smirk as you stumble over your own feet
She blushes as you compliment her
You're stumbling over you words also
It's somehow adorable to watch
You call my name and yell to me,
"I'll be back in a few, alright?"
I slowly nod my head and reply
"Sure, just be back by dinner."
You leave me sitting in the warm sand
And I can't help but to smile as I watch
You walk awkwardly next to the crashing waves
I can tell by the way she looks at you
She thinks you're perfect
And though you've only just met her
I've got the feeling deep down inside

I know its not what you want to hear beautiful girl but you have to leave. You cant pretend that the good makes up for the bad. You cant just hope he will never hit you. Dont give him that chance; dont wait until it happens my sweet. You have to leave him.
Ignore the ache. Its superficial. You have to believe in your strength. You managed without him and you can do the same once you leave. The ache is of familiarity and it will fade.
Depend on me always. I really do love you and I will help you as long as you want it. I depend on you ..though you might not realise it. You make me feel needed, wanted.

With broken wings,
Weighted down by a burden of compassion,
Hopelessness wells up inside,
And a shadow overlooks her.
She falls hoping to be caught

This fallen angel hides her pain
By loving others,
Fighting her fear of crying.
She walks with her head held high,
While somone special takes her hand,
And Whispers Softly in her ear,
"Don't worry, I love you"

My heart wretches
Tears spring to my eyes
My heart jumps
My soul pours out in bloody lumps
As I thrash my head around to the tune
My body is not my own, but it will return to me soon
For now, it belongs only to sound
The beat jump starts my heart, and it starts to pound
it thrashes against my chest
I spin, faster, faster, until I simply fall, fall to rest.
The world spinning above my head, and under my gaze
My mind still clouded with my tone high haze
In my room, the sound shakes the walls
In here, I can ignore everything past the halls
Ignore the cries, and hollers, And for now Ill be bold
For now Ill forget all Ive been told
All that matters is my music, a sound thats not my own
For all I care, the worlds turned to stone
Louder, Louder! Ill shriek in ecstasy
Because, for now, Im not me
Im just another listener, owned by the song

Night was closing quickly around me as the final, faint grey tendrils of sunset faded on the horizon. Gravel crunched beneath my feet with every step, so loud that I was sure that any second someone would stick their head out the window and scream at me to hush up, the way they do when Old Man Barley goes on one of his drunken raves. It is curious how things that seem so innocent in the daytime, so insignificant, can suddenly become your betrayer once the sky turns black. I ducked my head as I walked, hunching my shoulders in the vain hope that if someone should see me, they wouldnt recognize me. It never occurred to me that my suspicious stance might encourage more misgivings than it subdued. After all, it was hardly against the law to walk down Main Street, even if it was after dark.
