The VanishingIf I were to open my eyes
Would you still be there in the morning?
When I turn to glance at the clock
Will your form disappear into the past?
I feel like your vanishing before my eyes
Fading away into the shadows
And I can't reach out to save you,
I can't even see you anymore.
I just wanted to tell you I'm sorry.
Have I lost my sight or have you lost your substance?
You mean so much to me
But I can feel you slipping through my fingers like sand.
You are the first warmth I have found in a long time,
I want you to linger with me here
And I want to live the impossible dream
But you seem to be just that; a fantasy.
When I turn my back to work,
Will you become a shadow of a monster?
When I wake up early from a nightmare,
Will you be there to comfort me or are you part of the dream?
I don't want a handsome prince;
just a friend I can share my life with.
Can I trust you not to be
Just another of my dark memories?

your heart used to sing to me,

I just want to disappear. Between the black blue curtain and the wall no one can see me. But in the mirror that rests forgotten on the wall, I can see myself. Electric green eyes, dilated to a near obsidian, are ringed by purple exhaustion as they stare back. My form is thinner, lighter than is natural beneath my dance warm ups so that they hang off slender shoulders and narrow hips. My hair lies loose and wispy down my back, longer than I have ever worn it in my past; it frames a pale face. Haunted is the only fitting description for what I see.
Suddenly, my eyes register something lunging through the darkness. With a snap black metal bands bite onto my wrists, dragging

Like fissures of destructive fire
Searing away any hope of a normal life for a marionette.
The pain is growing stronger,
Digging away at flesh and bone,
Pulling already fragile pieces apart
Until there is nothing left to the doll.
Alice's madness is slowly returning,
And this Ace of Hearts is turning black.
Wonderland is falling apart petal by petal
But turning back means being eaten alive by the past.
The finish of the game will be worth it,
It must be the focus if anyone is to win here.
There isn't long now; its getting harder,
And that guarantees the end is near.
So as the wood splinters to pieces,
As the mind retreats within itself,
Remember that its almost over,
The impossible is possible together
if we don't crack together first.

On this hellish night there.

Of evil beaten by good,
But of night cheating light
And taking all they could.

deep fissures now crack
as she prays for God

As she keens so quietly alone?
Praying for some one anyone
As she texts the news on her phone?
Sets down the shining screen
As tears slip forth
Knowing what this means.
If anything now
She is needed more than ever
But she went too far out
To help with that endeavor.
Two lovers cry tonight,
But each a different kind.
One crying for her true love,
The other for a friend of mind.

As my fingers begin to scratch at raised bites, her hand catches my own to yank me harshly beneath the surface. "What are you doing?" she asks cooly.
"Leave me alone." I try to shake her off; I don't want to listen. I just want to be alone and sort out what happened. I want to have my head back.

Cyanide SwingIt was a cyanide swing,Cyanide Swing in Free Verse More Like This
sticks and stones made to break bones,
and a spilling of guts meant for love.
A sweeter sin than sacrificing
for a love that didn't want to be loved;
hanging her by the neck before an audience.
Tremors from treasonous words
tickled her throat like a razor,
kissing away the pain with fresh agony.
Common sense cut herself,
bruises of a broken heart littering her neck;
she choked it down to be thrown up against the wall.
Failure found fresh purchase as
poison infected infested wounds;
it promised fate worse than death for the soul.
Don't mind the shadows
They're just stitching her shallow cuts
And confining her to the coffin of affection again.
He should be the corpse,
She could be the killer .
Or he could be the devil and she could be a sinner.
This is their cyanide swing
a backbreaking chorus of love
so insane that when their done she'll break.
How to Survive TogetherHow to Survive AnythingHow to Survive Together in Philosophical More Like This
1. Trust Each Other; Don't Leave.
There is strength in numbers. A divided house is weak; knowing that you can count on the people around you gives a power that doesn't exist alone. Learn to read subtle signs, keep the bonds strong and show you will do as you say.
2. Keep Close
Distance matters against enemies. Never let them separate you. Be aware that emotional division can be just as powerful as physical. Its not always easy; sometimes it can't be done to be right next to them and everyone needs space. But if you are close and trust each other, it won't matter.
3. Love No Matter What
Remember somethings are out of control. Do not hold grudges; bury the past . Love is being willing to give up everything for someone else regardless of cost. If you can have this, then there is little that you won't be able to do to protect the one who means the world.
4. Understand Priority

What Doesn't Kill YouA pool of glass refracts endlessly through itself, and I am merely in its silver surface. The water is cold, so bitingly cold as I step forward to sink to my knees. It bites my hands; it splinters into my skin like prickling chips. Staring at the blood that trickles like red wine to mix with water, I allow it to push me to my feet.

Jerked forward by the wrist, I stare at the monument that looms menacingly before my eyes where my haunt has pulled me. Its blue and black stones have worn with acid rain; moss coats their northern edges like the blood of ghosts. Unwil

SuicideI take pills to help me feelSuicide in Free Verse More Like This
Alright just for another night
As my life starts to fade
Into a sickly gray
I take a knife and take a slice
So for that night the pain can hold me tight
I take a rope
Around my throat
Then as i take a leap of hope
Then slowly i begin to choke
But as you may know
Yeah i did choke
Cause right now im writing this
Living just like a bloke
Im here today and maybe the next
But others are gone so lets take a sec
To wonder if we can help them yet
Lets all go out and help the rest
So lets all not stand aside
While all our friends cry
Contemplating on suicide

Relationships are like bikesRelationships are like bikes.Relationships are like bikes in Free Verse More Like This
You start off learning how to ride a bike,
Just like you start off getting to know someone.
You get used to the bike and you ride it have the time of your life.
You get into a relationship; fall in love, holding hands with a smile of happiness and a laugh of joy.
Time goes by and you get tired of the bike.
Time passes and you start to forget who you're holding hands with or who you're saying I love you to.
The bike begins to erode.
Your relationship begins to fall apart.
Then one day you're riding that bike and it falls apart underneath you.
You're relationship breaks and it's to a point where you have to walk away.
You try to fix the bike with all your might, remembering the feeling you had when riding it.
You try to mend your broken relationship, saying that you can fix it.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
So don't compare your relationship to a bike that would fall apart.
Instead give that other a ring and make it car.

"Well, because when people see a smile on someone else face it sometimes brightens up their day." I replied swinging my legs back and forth getting ready to swing.
"But isn't it kind of weird smiling at a girl whose as young as me, while you're like five years older than me isn't that kind of pedo-ish Nick?" she asks with a questionable look on her face.
"Hahaha I'm not like that and fyi I'm only three years older than you Ash, and even so why are hanging out with a kid as old as me?" I replied answering her question with another question, while standing on the seat of the swing swinging getting ready to take off.

LonelyThey left you behind. They left you to rot. And you know it.Lonely in Short Stories More Like This
In the beginning you would try to make excuses for them. Why they would never come and visit you, why you never saw them anymore, and why they left you.

Where are you?
How have you been?
Can you hear me?

Winding its way around everything
Never thought to stay
Because I cannot stand by and watch the world change around me
Simple words and complex feelings
Never able to completely reach you
Always kinda figured it would end this way
But what could I have done against the ever-changing tide
And I stare at the four walls waiting to close in around me
Now finally left alone to my thoughts
Just a wish
On a single star
Wanting to be heard
Come for a StoryThey become as quiet as shadows.

They would come standing on their hands if only to hear the words.Come for a Story in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
They come for a story.
It does not matter what kind of story to them. Be it the adventures of Peter Pan in Never-Neverland, or the tragedies of Orpheus and his Eurydice. Another mystery from the alleyways of Baker Street or the tales of a battleground soaked in red as the carrion crows fly above. A story is a story, and to them all the tales told here are special.
The voice of the storyteller will weave the threads of magic, light, darkness and shadows to tease the story to come to life for the viewers. The storyteller will sing and laugh and cry just as the characters of the piece will and become the window to other worlds.
The storyteller takes a deep breath. And the listeners unconsciously hold their breath as they wai

There's a monster under the bed.
My back is unprotected,
Now my front will face the fire.
No, I'm terrified.
They will do unspeakable things to me.
No one will stop them.
No one can stop them.
They have their monsters too.
They can't fight mine and theirs.
So, I must stand alone.
Without armor, unprotected in the face of their wrath.
Terror grips my mind.
I want to flee, but I find my bare feet glued to the ground.
I squeeze my eyes shut.
Perhaps that old adhere, "if I can't see them, they can't see me" is true.
There are monsters in my head,
There's a monster under the bed.
The Duchess of MasksThere is a lightness in the sound of steps on the cold stone floor.

Except there are no fruits on the trees, because it is spring here, the first days of growing. No, it is fall, what the leaves have turned their brilliant colours and are falling down, down, down. No! It is winter, with the whitewhite snow falling gently onto the browndead grass. It can't be! Look again, it is summer, the leaves green and the air hot and nothing cold
Do not...Do not call me by my name.Do not... in Free Verse More Like This
Instead, call the stars,
They will hear you better than I
Do not look for me.
Instead, look to the setting sun,
The red clouds marking my way
Do not listen for my voice.
Instead, listen to the music,
It offers more sound than I could ever give
Do not search the darkness for me.
Instead, live in the light,
Like how you used to
Do not follow me just yet.
Instead, live your life,
I will be waiting till you find me

Didn't you know already?
They shine for you
You want to see them up close?
Alright. If that is what you want
I will attach a pair of wings to your back
You and I will work together
You and I will make those wings
And once all those feathers are glued on
I will be watching as you take off
Be safe, my friend
For while you are in the air,
I will be here on the ground
Watching you dance among the stars
With the wings I helped to make
The stars are still shining,
Even as I am losing sight of you
I stand here on the ground underneath the stars
And I still don't know...
What I should have done.

I wear a simple mask, but it serves its purpose well.
It hides the darkened half circles beneath my eyes.
It covers the minute twitches of the corners of my mouth.
It hides my telling blush that blooms across my cheeks.

I wear a simple mask as I dance an elaborate masquerade.

I probably should be more concerned about that than I really am. But I'm not. All that concerned, I mean.
It's funny, in a way. But at the same time, it's not funny at all.
The stars are falling.
I sing a pretty little half-remembered tune as another one of those bright balls crash down. I stop when I come to the point where I have forgotten the words.
Huh. I can't seem to remember something. Have you ever had those moments? Where something seems to be niggling at the corner of your mind, but no matter how hard you try to catch it, it is as elusive as smoke?
Do you like your name? Mine is nice, if a bit popular. But still, do you like your name?
The stars are falling.
I wonder if it was meant to be this way. I wonder if the world will recuperate from its loss of the stars. I wonder if I'll even be here or if I will just fade to dust on the wind.
Some might say not to wonder about these things, but I still do. It is not like I can stop my mind from wondering. That

Feel OkayI've become infectedFeel Okay in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's eating me away like acid
I'm left with this
This excuse for a body..this
My bones are becoming thin
I've lost any strength from within
I can't go out with a friend
The life I'm living is pretend..
I can't go to school
Because this disease is so cruel
I can't live a normal life
And I grow tired of this constant strife
The pain is sometimes unbearable
Honestly, it's quite terrible
Not even medicine can heal
How exactly I feel..
My insides start to ache
Testing how much more I can take
If I will go insane
Just because of the pain
Or the fact that I will never be the same
This disease is to blame
My stomach refuses to agree with me
This is how I will forever be..
Some days I lay in bed
Wondering if there's any good ahead
If it's even worth trying
Even if I know I'm not dying
I don't know if I can be cured
Though, I am self-assured
I know one day
I will feel okay..
