Behind that computer screen
So free of the blame
When you can't hear me scream
And don't you pretend
That you can't understand
When you sit up so high
You just extend the fall
You know you never lost at all...
Don't say I'm not sorry
When you can't see my eyes
I was too far gone
To distinguish the lies
Upset turns to rage
And I spite you with this pen
But for now I am broken
And the darks seeped in again
So don't tell me you hate me
From behind that screen
Don't tell me you hate me
When you can't see me scream

hold your breath
she'd kill if she found out
about your best kept secret
give a good excuse
to why you're home so late
make it very convincing
don't let her find out about me
claim she's your one and only
but when she's not around
instantly call me up
just to hear me say hello
zip your lips
and throw away the key
close off your heart
and forget about me
i can't keep being your
dirty little secret
that's technically not even dirty
so please just leave
until you can grow up
and tell her about me
and make it clear
that she's going to have to deal
and if you leave
and never return
i will have lost my best friend
but maybe your face will fade
i can't keep thinking about you
when all you do is think about her
i can't keep talking to you
when she doesn't even have a clue
you're tearing me up inside
and i can't take it anymore
i'm tired of feeling the need to cry
everytime my phone rings
i can't stand the thought
of you holding her
i can't bare the thought
of you fucking her
CagedI am not who you think I am.Caged6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You hear a southern drawl
You see a tom-boy glide
Into the room and immediately
You've made up your mind about
Who I am and what I am about
Hold me up against that standard
In your mind and I won't add up.
You don't know me.
I am not who you think I am.
You see cream colored skin
Blue eyes and brown hair
But under all of these trappings
Desert sands shift in my soul
To the beat of tablas and doumbeks
And the shimmer of the ney flute
Sends my blood coursing
Hot and earnest through me.
You don't know me.
I am not who you see before you.
This is all just outer confinements
Boundaries and lines drawn in air
To keep the world safe from
Seeing the animal deep inside me,
The wraith hiding in my eyes.
This animal that breaths life into my spine
Wreaks havoc on my hips
And twists my hands into knots
In attempts to portray things
That only I can understand...
The one who pulls me onto dance floors
To the heady rhythm of house music
Giovanni Baglione Speaks OutNot many in this city still rememberGiovanni Baglione Speaks Out6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
how inauspiciously young Merisi's career
began, how he was driven from Milan,
a hounded fugitive, after he murdered
some other drunken, brawling lout.
That's why he arrived at Rome a beggar
with only his body to offer for bread,
all those years ago.
Now he's running again. He loves
that sword of his too much. Yet another
drunken wastrel paid for a quarrel
in the worthless coin of his life.
Even those bankers and Cardinals,
whose gold encouraged his pretensions,
even they could see that this time
he had put himself beyond the reach
of their protection.
Rome is well rid of him.

"I'm coming out" she said,
she didn't mention
she was coming out of her head
trying to turn over a new leaf
one without the drugs or
all the men caused grief
alcohol wasn't doing it either
though apart from the chemical haze
intoxication was a nice breather
She's found silence in this space
Splitting her numb world
With amazing grace
she's still trying;
still lying on the floor
still blocking the door

KAD: PrologueHey Abby, thats unfair! Gabe, a young Mobian hedgehog of the age of twelve, yelled to his friend as she splashed him by surprise with one of the many muddy puddles disperced throughout her backyard. Gabe and a couple of his friends had been fooling around by Abbys house when suddenly she decided to start some sort of water fight. It had rained the night before and the yard was a living swamp.KAD: Prologue7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
That wasnt unfair, Abby stated, I just took you by surprise. Admit it Gabe.
She threw her hands to her hips and stuck out her tongue; her once-white dress full of water and mud. It was quite a windy day, causing her navy-blue hair to fly out of her golden headband to the front of her creamy muzzle; her green eyes flashing with intimidation.
You dont scare me if thats what youre trying to do, Gabe cocked back as his own black hair draped behind him; his gradient-like strip

The moment I set my eyes on you, I know and I was certain that you were the one I have been waiting for all my life. After you touched my heart, I never had a single doubt, that what I felt for you was what real love was all about. As long as you are in my life, there's nothing I can't do, for the greatest joy I've ever known has come from loving you. You are the depths of my soul, the light in my heart and the air that I breathe.
My love, the longer we're together, the more I realize how much I need you – I realize how much it means to have your love, your support, your understanding. The longer we're together, the more I hope that you know the emotions I feel in my heart – and all the special reasons why I love you.
In this world where love can be hard to find and harder still to keep, we found each other. And not only did we find the kind of love that people desire of, but also the kind that has full of life and is exciting over time.

A thing you'll never know
I want something I once had
A long long time ago
I never should have treated you,
Like the way I did,
But what can you expect from a broken girl,
Who inside is just a kid
I wish I could say I'm sorry,
And I wish you would care,
But now I know you wont listen,
You'll never ever be there
I wish I could tell you how much I hate,
Myself for doing what I have done
But I cant change the past
And it wont ever be undone
Hours feel like weeks,
And months feel like years,
I let myself become controlling,
So maybe i wouldn't have to face my fears.
But in the end it cost you pain,
More then i ever wanted to do,
I never wanted to let go,
I never wanted to hurt you.
You saw me for the fake,
That inside I truelly was,
And i began to lie to myself,
Creating a chaotic buzz.
I made myself lie to you,
About what we used to be,
Hoping it would change the way you feel,
About not wanting me.
You did toss my heart aside,
And let it shatter on the floor,

Every night I lose a pound of flesh,
From your coldness, your despise.
Hereafter this conflict more will rise.
With my glass full of empty lies.
And empty threats of your demise.
And one sharp stake in my eyes,
Stopping the cause of all my sighs
And to bring love to small of our size.
Every Night I smell your tears,
and ask "where have you been all these years"?
I'd thought you'd run from loveless leers,
From the way you seem to be.
Like Pagliacci and naive Nedda,
I am a clown, despite your love letters.
From every pound of flesh and each feather,
Also whenever the banshee's vendetta,
Hunts me like I should have known better.
As if my face could've got any wetter.
The wick of our love is not made of leather,
And will burn out soon.
To be absent for such long years,
And every night is flushed with tears,
Sorry fills up our empty fears.
And takes away our bliss.
All winter long, it shone upon thee.

It was a dark and stormy night! No, wait, it wasn't stormy yet. That happened later. Well, let's just say it was a dark night and leave it there.
Two whole days had passed since we had left the Cottage. We'd seen some interesting things already, like a forest of sticks and a peaceful meadow filled with animals. We'd followed the light of the Really Big Lamp and Radio's navigation skills (if they really were real) to this place; a creepy forest of darkness.
Being a lamp, I hate the dark. That's why I was so glad my light was there to shine in the forest, showing everyone where to go. Of course, I was a little bit angry when Kirby told me to turn it off, but he had a good reason. The battery was dying, and without it there would be no way we could keep going. Sure, we can move on our own power for a little while, but we need some power source to keep us going forever.
So, there we were, in the dark and spooky forest, no light, running low on power, no light, in need of shelter, and no li

Celestia took her place on her throne, whilst the six ponies stood the customary distance away from the thrones.

In the morning she wakes up to the scent of frying meat and cheese potatoes. Her face and abdomen ached, and she decided to get ready before she went down to eat. She wanders around until she finds a bathroom, a few doors down.
'Argh. Why does my stomach hurt so bad? Was it the pasta? Nah, I practically ravish their food supply whenever I come over. What's wrong? Ugh, I hope I'm sick today.' _______ wonders to herself.
She sits down and she almost screamed.
'What the hell, did I shit myself?!' She mentally screamed waddling around the bathroom with her underwear pooling at her knees. 'What is that?!'
'My god...' Reality hits her.

Dorian frowned. He’d been distracted by the fact Iron Bull kept turning his head in the same direction. Dorian had turned to follow the Qunari’s gaze but found that he was just looking at the elf who sat by the fire, staring off into space.
He wondered what had the elf so caught up in his day dream that he hadn’t heard a word that anyone had said to him.
Although - Dorian made the alarming realization that the elf was staring at Blackwall.
“Bull?” Dorian mumbled lowly, causing the giant Qunari to regard him. “Is he looking at Blackwall like that?”
