You'll see a face

Looking through a pair of glasses

And make yourself look foolish

Australia is my home
The place I love the most
The beauty of this land
Stretches from coast to coast
Great big sweeping deserts
And sparkling blue seas
Soft golden sandy beaches
It's certainly enough to please
The rich variety of this land;
All the miles for us to roam
Australia is still, after all these years,
The place that I call home.

Just the thought of you drives all else away,
My body aches for you throughout the day,
Without you, my nights seem endless,
Your mere presence leaves me senseless.
Your sweet lips gently caressing mine,
Send shivers up and down my spine.
My heart races with your slightest touch,
How is it possible to feel so much?
You surpass body, mind, and dream,
This attraction, strong does it seem.
Our hearts are linked, our spirits too,
I can't imagine life without you.
You make me weak, you steal my breath,
To lose you would be my death.
This feeling between us is a gift from above,
This thing we're feeling is true, pure love.
What is a Dream?What is a Dream?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A dream, as crazy as it may seem, is only the creation of our own imagination at its best. The skies seem bluer, the flowers seem to smell better and even our real life enemies seem to become our friends. We rely on those dreams to tell us who we are, to define what it is that we are struggling through and how to get that golden ticket we are so eagerly reaching for. We're not sure what the golden ticket will lead us to, wealth and prosperity, good fortune, friendship, good health, etc- but we always know there is something worth fighting for. Something that is worth seeking for till the end
Sometimes you find yourself in the greatest tangle of all webs within a dream: love. It's not always who you expected, sometimes the person you find yourself in love with inside a dream is as odd as finding a bird eating a gummy worm. But with both parties, you find yourself admiring how sweet and unexpectedly wonderful they had turned out to be.
You tend to find yourself not only wonde

Nothing to deserve this.
The tortureing of innocence.
The lives noones missed.
Sitting alone to rot
Their death awaits.
To exist for one reason.
To be born with this fate.
Blessed with Natures purity
Their pain burns through
The meat you once consumed
Is now consuming you.
Their crys for help
heardly heard at all
weak and frail
They're left where they fall.
Why? Why do we do this?
Have we sunk this low?
To torture defenceless lives
Many don't even know
They spend what they have
Trapped in a cell.

It was another simple day for Martian, as he jogged on the barren road in the middle of nowhere, the sun shining brightly above him with crystal clear skies, with little to none clouds. Martian was a average built man, with black hair topping his head and brown eyes hidden behind a pair of crimson shades. Plugged into his ears were buds that blasted music into his mind, distracting him from the road ahead or his destination; a simple one story house that stood on the right of the road, painted white with a light brown roof. A pool could easily be seen behind the house, and a small garage that sat behind the building with a dirt road leading to its entrance. Martian jogged a bit further, stopped at his mailbox and bend over to catch his breath, then rose to check his pulse and his watch wrapped around his left wrist, while a black and yellow band was wrapped around his right. After a few seconds he sighed loudly, stretched his back and headed towards th

I'll walk a mile in your shoes,

I'll be your penny, head side up
I'll be the prize inside the box
The one who sets Autumn back,

I'll give up everything inside

Even if it only gains you

But every time I tear my heart out

you smile at me and put it back

Of Cheaters Acts (PewDieCry)‘We’re done, Cry. I’m with Toby now.’ Cry watched, with tears welling up in his eyes, as Ken walked away, wrapping around Toby’s waist. Shakily standing to his feet, Cry ran out of the diner, running to a nearby park, collapsing on his knees next to a large tree.Of Cheaters Acts (PewDieCry)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Leaning against the tree, Cry cried silently as it began to ran, the thick curtain creating a barrier between him and the world beyond. Today had been his and Ken’s three year anniversary, and Cry had proposed to Ken, intent on spending the rest of his life with the Texan.
It was then Ken had rejected him, revealing that he had been cheating their entire relationship, only using the Floridian gamer for his computer skills, and money. Curling up into a ball, Cry shivered as cold raindrops hit him, soaking thru his shirt. When the rain stopped falling above him, Cry looked up, only to see an umbrella, being held by a clothed arm.

Love and Hate,
Grief and Joy,
Hope and Dispair,
All this in one moment?
I was never prepared.
I can't see how it's possible
To be so happy yet so sad
Always smiling for no reason at all
With tears waiting patiently
For everything to fall.
Never at peace, never alone
Surrounded by nightmares
Striving to be real
Tortured by dreams
That shatter without warning.
Loving to live, living to love
Blessed with a gift
Both pure and sweet
Cursed with that same gift
Now tainted and worn.

Hate when you're gone
Drowned in my own Grief
Bursting with Joy
Hope for the best
But anticipate Dispair

He sighed as he made his way through another long day, shifting his bag as he walked around the hedge maze. He often came here to clear his mind, and he sat by the small pool taking off his shoes to set them in the cool water.
“Comfortable?” Tamaki started, looking up to see the teen he was jealous most of, Kyoya Otori. Said Asian closed his notebook and sat on the bench beside him, smiling down at him as he tilted his head faintly. Tamaki looked away with a frown.
“Why should you care?” He muttered to himself, looking at his meaty hands on his lap. Kyoya frowned and gently moved Tamaki’s head so they were face to face.

“AHHHHH!!!” Bolting upright, Loki clutched himself eyes darting around the dark room. He nearly screamed again when arms encircled him, his half-aware mind telling him they were to drag him back down to the Chitarui’s waiting jaws.
“Hey, hey it’s okay…it’s only me.” Gentle words washed over the panicking god, gentle hands massaging his tense shoulders. Loki turned, fingers ghosting over a toned chest to rest upon the faint glowing circle in the middle. Laying his palm against the smooth glass and metal Loki slowly relaxed, assured that his bedmate was in fact real.
“Yea it’s me. I’m real.” Was the response of unasked question, as he ran his fingers through raven black hair.

He wanted to feel his body under his, to hear moans and pants spill from those beautiful lips as he pleasured him until he came, screaming his name to the gods.

Problems that I was never able to tell you,
Problems that I'm sick of dealing with. I'm through.
I'm sick of pretending that everything's alright,
I'm sick of having all these emotional demons to fight.
I can't take my depressing life anymore,
I realize I felt this way too often before.

Just another stupid teen, just another ugly face.
I can tell I'm secretly hated by everyone I know,
Though, when I'm around, they don't let their hatred show.
My life has no purpose as I can clearly see,
No one needs me and everyone hates me
I hate this world I live in, I hate how I feel now.
I try so hard to be accepted, but I don't know how.

Cold and alone.

He flashes a smile.

I can see it in his eyes,
He pulls out a gun,
And that's when I realise
What he's about to do,
He's got his mind set on it,
I yell at him to stop,
But he's already done it.
He pulls the trigger,
The gun pointed at his head,
There's a small gun retort,
And a small show of red.
He's taken his life,
When he didn't have to,
He's taken his life,
As many others have, too.
Many young people,
And old ones too,
I want you to know,

HHGttG Entry on... FangirlsGuide Entry #2969HHGttG Entry on... Fangirls9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of fangirls.
Fangirls are a type of human infected with a disease known only as 'fangirlism'. It only infects the female population (although there is a similar form of the disease that affects the male population; see 'fanboyism'. It is far less common though). Symptoms include giggle fits, mental nosebleeds (see 'anime clichés' for more on this odd phenomenon), fainting, squealing, writing/drawing/reading/viewing/enjoying X-rated drawings/comics/stories.
Fangirlism is quite a horrible disease indeed. Victims become addicted to their 'fandom', which is whatever they are a fan of. The typical causes are…
-cute movie actors
-TV shows with cute actors
-Japanese anime with cute guys
-Japanese comics (known as manga) with cute guys
-Video games with cute guys
…The Guide is sensing a trend here.
Once an innocent victim is ensnared, she becomes slowly obsessed. Most fangirlism develops between the ages of 1
