Turn off the light.
Say one last prayer.
Then say goodnight.
Accept your fate.
Lay down your head.
Then count to three.

You are a keeper.
Meet your new friend.
Your favorite Grim Reeper.
He slows your pulse.
He takes your breath.
As you relax.
And try to rest.
He takes your hand.
Death so serene.
Wake up and smile.

Alfred led him to a darkened building in a far corner of the park which Lovino couldn't remember having seen before (not that he spent much time at the park, aside from Feliciano's picnics. It wasn't that he didn't like it, but it wasn't like he had anyone to go with, and it seemed kind of pathetic and pointless to wander the park by himself).
"Are you sure we should be doing this, bastard?" Lovino asked dubiously, a little worried as he followed Alfred into the dark structure.
"Yeah, it's okay, I have permission." Alfred assured him, ushering Lovino in and closing the door behind them. He flicked a switch on the wall near the door, and the sudden flood of light temporarily blinded Lovino. "So? Whatt'

(They'd been sitting and talking on the bench for a couple of hours now, and the night had gotten pretty chilly, so after his footrub Lovino had curled up against the taller blond for warmth. Alfred had generously assisted in keeping him warm by wrapping an arm around him, and Lovino had to admit that it was pretty effective. And comfortable. The night air was cold but Alfred radiated heat, and the arm around him and the blond's solid warmth made him feel safe and protected not that he needed protecting, of course, but still, it was nice to feel like he could let his gua

They did handle the lunch rush, although it was a bit of a stretch at some points. When things finally settled down a couple hours later and they'd cleaned up the aftermath, they took advantage of the lull to enjoy another well-deserved break.
"You really should try the Filtro de Amor, Lovi." Antonio urged, licking foam from his upper lip. "It's very good."
"Of course it is." Lovino agreed, finishing off the last of his own espresso and setting the cup aside. "I made it, didn't I?"
"But you still haven't tried it," Antonio pointed out, pouting a little. "Don't you want to be lucky in love? It worked for Feliciano!"
"What? No it didn't." Lovino snorted, going around the counter to restock the pas

Forty-five minutes after they'd left Lovino was sprawled listlessly on the counter, staring at nothing in particular. Three customers had arrived within minutes after Antonio and Arthur had left, but after they'd placed their orders and departed, business had been dead. The shop was empty, the street outside was empty, and Lovino was bored out of his mind.
It was a nice change, actually.
He pushed himself up on an elbow with a sigh, leaning his chin in his hand. Valentine's Day, huh? It wasn't that he didn't like the holiday, or even that he wasn't romantically inclined, but he had a hard time feeling like it was an actual holiday. It felt just like any other day to him. Maybe it was because

"Thanks for stopping by! Happy Valentines Day!" Alfred waved as their last customers departed for the night, closing the door and locking it, and flipping the sign hanging on it from 'Open' to 'Closed'. He turned, ruffling his hair and grinning at Lovino. "Man, that was nuts! I thought it was never going to end."
"We're not done yet, bastard." Lovino said, chucking a washcloth at him. "You clean the lobby and wash the dishes, and I'll take care of the stuff back here."
"Haha, 'kay!" Alfred laughed, getting to work on the tables. Lovino set to work closing out the register and cleaning the machine, things he'd done often enough that he didn't even need to think about it anymore, and could let his min

It all started because that idiot Feliciano got himself sick. Not seriously or anything, it was just a stupid cold, but it was enough to keep him from going to the world meetings, which meant Romano had to go instead. He tended to skip them whenever he could. After all, Feliciano almost invariably attended, since wherever Germany went you could find North Italy, and the meetings didn't need two Italys. He hated feeling superfluous. Besides, on the rare occasion he did go stupid Spain and his bastard friends tended to be there, and when all three of them were together they spent so much time harassing him and anyone else within touching distance that he could never concentrate on getting any work done.
But here he was, si

Lovino was going to kill him.
Lovino was going to kill him.
And it wasn't even his fault! He was innocent, innocent! It was bad luck, pure and simple. He'd been in the wrong place, at the wrong time- although, come to think of it, it had been the other guys that had been in the wrong place at the wrong time; he'd actually been driving perfectly legally.
He'd had right of way at the four-way-stop, and the roads had been clear when he'd started across driving at the speed limit, mind, even though it was only 30 miles per hour, which was ridiculous when that stupid truck came tearing around the corner at 90mph and slammed into his passenger si

Romano growled as he stomped through the underbrush, kicking up dirt and debris as he went. Stupid Spain and his stupid war over some stupid kid that didn't even matter, with that stupid bastard England who could just keep the damn brat, as far as Romano cared. He didn't see why Spain was so interested in this 'America', anyway. He already had Romano, didn't he? Wasn't that enough? What did he need some other kid around for? Stupid Spain. He kicked a rock into some ferns, sulking.
And now Spain had to drag him into it, as usual. As if he cared about some stupid brat. He wouldn't even have co

"Ah, Arthur! You came!" Francis greeted the Englishman standing on the doorstep with excessive enthusiasm. "C'est bonne, now we are all here! And you've brought wine! And flowers!"
"It's customary to bring a gift to your host." Arthur responded a little gruffly, blushing as he handed them over.

The GambleI am a prisonerThe Gamble4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Locked in this room
There's no way out
But I want to leave soon
I look towards the window
This is my only shot
I ponder this escape
But of courage I have not
I could live
I could die
Isn't either better than this?
I am a lover
Silent as death
I wait and I watch
Until my last breath
You glance my way
I could tell you how I feel
But I have nothing to say
Though my love is surely real
I could have you
I could lose you
Isn't either better than this?
I am a sinner
Flooded with shame
No one could love me
I'm not the same
I might try to change
That would be good
But what would people say
Who would think I could
I could try
I could fail
Isn't either better than this?
The Infinite RegressTheist: God exists.The Infinite Regress4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Atheist: And how's that?
Theist: Because everything must have a cause, and universe must have been caused by God.
Atheist: Couldn't the universe just be eternal?
Theist: No, because the big bang theory proves that the universe had a beginning, and couldn't have been eternal.
Atheist: That's just speculation on your part. The big bang theory says nothing about the cause of the big bang, or the state of the universe prior to it. Science can't yet answer that.
Theist: Well even if the big bang wasn't the very beginning, that's just pushing it back one more stage, the universe had to be caused!
Atheist: The universe exists, can we agree?
Atheist: Your beliefs aside, God is unproven, can we agree?
Atheist: So if something has to be eternal and uncaused, explain to me how it makes more sense to argue that it must be an unproven entity of infinite complexity, rather than something of finite complexity which we already know exists?

I'm dying, I'm crying but outside my smiling
you don't even know me, you don't even recognize me
Why does the world have to be so cruel to me?
Living in a world that wasn't made for me
Trying to be the best I can be
Finding what's meant to be.
Can't you see the thousand tears that I cry
the heartache that I sigh.
I'm tired of trying
tired of fighting
Was our love a lie?
Was this a game?
a game that you played
You ripped my heart out
My soul died out
nothing left but to cry now.
Why is this happening?
In the world that I live in
This everlasting scheme
Is only beginning.
A head full of anger
held in my chest.
Why did It have to end?
Now I wonder why?
Was it cause of me?
The answers are found
in darkness where light used to be.

1. "Would everyone just stop debating over this and watch the video. Seriously. God cannot bear to see sin. God created life and therefore he can take it away."
Indeed, he can take life away and throw it to the firey pits of Hell, as he so nicely claims how much joy it brings to him throwing everyone he hates (which incidently is everyone he kills). Seriously, don't these dumbfucks read their holy texts?
2. "You are right. But when God came down in the form of a man (Jesus) We all assume he is a boy. Plus God's voice from heaven sounds like a boy. So God should be gender neutral since he can choose to be any form God likes? Who knows what gender God is. Just because God is a divine being doesn't mean God can't be of a certain gender."

Konan sighed, She's quiet...way too quiet, something must have happened. The pink headed girl hadn't said a word and for her, that was abnormal.
Sakura lolled lifelessly in the deep vintage tub of the girls bathroom. The bubbles clang to her sickly flesh and she shivered beneath the surface of the lukewarm water.
"I'm sorry about yesterday...hitting you but what you did-"
"I know, I was immature, stupid...a fool...retarded...insane..."
