My dreams are tainted with thoughts of you
I toss and turn, but never win
Cold sweat beading down my skin
And all I know
Is how much it hurts
All the way down to my core
The desperate plea
Etched In one last tear
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna be here anymore
I lay in bed; Is it night or day?
It doesn't matter either way
I sit and think, but never win
I feel you crawling beneath my skin
It's all I know
I'll ever love
The pain at home inside my core
The desperate plea
Has faded, I fear...
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna be here anymore...

I hear the raindrops tap the street
Forgetting all I've fallen for, I can't go on
I can't be more
Hidden behind tapestries
Adorned with painful memories
Slowly realize what you've done, I've lost it all
I've come undone
A fallen angel at your feet
A broken mess at your mercy
Heartless in my time of need, you walked away
You watched me bleed
Holding out for fate unknown
A missing piece, an empty home
Living life with no one there, I know I'm lost
But I don't care
Within the boundaries of myself
Crying out for someone's help
Wishing for, with all my heart
They'll stop the pain and light the dark
A fallen angel at my feet
Broken, shattered just like me
I take her hand and grip it tight
We'll last forever in the light

God, it hurts like heaven;
Longing for all your affection,
Every bit of your attention,
You're a divine intervention.
In this life that's turned to hell.
I can't help it when I reminisce,
In moments that are just like this,
I remember when we had our kiss,
And now how much I really miss,
The times when we weren't separated,
Were the best memories that I've created,
To reunite is long awaited,
I feel like I'm incarcerated,
In my own personal hell.
I can't help it when I think of you...
I hope one day we'll say "I do."
But for now I have to struggle through,
Until the day I get to you...
It won't be long, love, I know we'll be fine...
So, darling, stay strong and keep your hand held in mine...
I'll never let you go and I'll always make amends...
I'll hold on to you forever, or until forever ends...

"Darling, I love you and I promise I'll never leave..."
I look to you and without missing a single beat,
I say, "You were my missing piece, now I'm finally complete."
An involuntary smile spreads out across your lips,
And I can't help but smile as I lean in to taste your kiss...
Then the frame stops and it's stuck on this same scene;
My nights have been so haunted with the recurrence of this dream.
I always hope that I'll wake up and this dream will become true,
But I'm so tired of only dreaming...
Darling, I miss you...
And since you've been gone I've been wasting away,
Just trying to find meaning in every day,
I know that I won't, but I try anyway,
I just hope you'll come back and I hope that you'll stay...
Since you've been gone I've been all on my own,
Trying so hard not to pick up the phone,
'Cause your voice always helps me to not feel so alone,
But since you've been gone that's all that I've known...

Nevertheless, medics were expected to be professionals till it was proven that the patient just meant to aggravate them and not much else, anyway. So, he turned around slowly, almost warily, and he faced Sideswipe.

Characters: Bluestreak, Prowl
The night fell swiftly, covering the Autobot City in darkness. Its walls glimmered under the scarce light of a waxing moon, providing quite the sight for anyone that happened to pass by. Most of the mechs had already retired to their quarters, and the corridors seemed abandoned and empty. In fact, the city was almost quiet now, as if the hell that was unleashed more than a month ago when the Decepticons made their surprise attack never came to pass.
Still, the hell had left its mark. The lone figure that walked in a small corridor on the eastern parts of the city knew that only too well.
The lights were out where he was, but Bluestreak didnt care. He knew the way like the back of his hand by now. He had to go up and down that corridor too many times whil

There was no moonlight that particular night, and the stars did little to light the fields that were located a few miles outside the town of Marysville, Ohio. Everything was quiet and peaceful; the only things that were on the move were the nocturnal creatures that had come out in search of a meal.
All night-life took cover, however, when an escalating roar filled the air. The dark atmosphere lit up, and a giant ball of fire crashed on the ground, burying itself in the crater that got formed at the impact.

Bluestreak knew that voice. He onlined his optics, slowly this time, and he directed his gaze to First Aid. The young medic was indeed at his side, an odd mixture of concern and something else in his visor as he stared down at him. Confusion maybe? Mortification? Bluestreak wasn't sure.

The room was dark, since the lights had gone out some time ago, but Sunstreaker didnt mind. While he still lay on the couch, lost in thought, he deemed that he wanted to remain like this forever, in the darkness, hiding from the rest of the world. After all, he didnt need the world anymore. He had something in his arms that was more than enough for him.
With that thought, he looked down at the silver form that was huddled close to him as comfortably as possible in the narrow space the couch provided. Sunstreaker couldnt see Bluestreaks face, because the soldier was using his yellow chest plate as a headrest.

The operation went a lot more smoothly than Bluestreak had expected. Early the next day, she had gone to the medbay, where Ratchet and Perceptor had been already waiting for her. They had been quite tired, Bluestreak could tell. Even so, they had both been smiling and ready to start work. And so, a couple of hours later, Bluestreak had come online with a new face and a broad smile on his features.
The rest of the Autobots had been glad to see the gunner back to his former self. True, there had been those few who had seemed a bit disappointed at first, but they had soon joined in the general mood of joy and relief as well. More importantly, Bluestreak was able to converse and joke with his friends without the awkward tension of self-consciousness that had plagued him for so long. It was no wonder that, a few d

Instead, they came along,

Someday I'd Like to Be A Pirate:
Someday I'd like t' be a pirate and sail across the seven seas.
I always thought it might be nice t' feel the ocean breeze.
I've always dreamt of findin' treasure, stashed away in a hidden box,
And then after I drop the anchor I'd burst open the locks!
Dubloons I'd find and diamonds t' keep, trinkets worth a life;
Or maybe I'd find a sacred sword or a really ancient knife!
But as I grew, I was soon t' learn, that dreams do not come true.
How many times have I seen a man be strangled till he's blue?
How many days have I watched them stumble, cursin' ill their fate.
When none would reach a helping hand, their heart would fill with hate.
I grew t' question th' ways of Kings who whipped the backs o' men,
More labour earned with blood and sweat while the preachers say 'Amen!'
Donations are given t' temples rich, while the poor are in the street;
So many souls are quickly trampled beneath their ugly feet....
Where first I believe the world was fair, no
I Am So DisturbedI Am So Disturbed:I Am So Disturbed in Free Verse More Like This
How long will it burn me,
In darkness cloaked.
Raped by a voice,
Of death it spoke.
The ceiling revolves with words of sorrow,
Draped on the walls, they are creatures hollow.
Screaming and crying, the death we seek,
The eyes that stare, when I fall asleep.
Voiceless whispers and empty sound,
The pattern of drool, that stains the ground.
Endlessly scratching at walls and eyes,
I stare at reflections that breathe to die.
The darkened shadows that seem to stain,
The constant sound of a pouring rain.
Wherever I go, the eyes that lead,
Within me planting a dirty seed.
Again and again I am twisted by sound,
I wake in a room that seems to surround.
I see myself, but I know it's not me,
What is man, in the mirror I see...
"You sir, have got terrible bags beneath your eyes!"

The last time that I saw you, I left with bitter words
I never knew how much the things, I said to you would hurt.
And I never wanted to see you; so I tried to shut you out
But a Mother is the one thing that I cannot live without...
I've been to the doctor's room
He tells me I will see you soon
I'm prayin' in the lobby-
Hopin' that you'll be okay...
I never knew that things would be this way...
The first memory I have, is when you used to hold my hand
You taught me how to be a man but I threw it in your face
Still you forgave me and still you believed
But I took your faith and broke it up, like golden autumn leaves...
why ain't I the one with the disease...
Mother can you hear me?
I wanted to let you know
That I'm stayin' here for good-
And I will never let you go!
I've been to the doctor's room
He tells me I will see you soon
I'm prayin' in the lobby-
Hopin' that you'll be okay...
I never knew that things would be this way...

She watches me, as I bid my friends goodbye
Her cold hands creep along my shoulders
they tell me that she is there
and that she will never let me go...
We're in my room now, away from the outside
I know that she doesn't like the sun
Often, she prefers to observe me from the shadows
but I think she doesn't like the others coming close...
We're beneath the covers now, panting softly
her cold body pressed against mine
Her lips are completely devoid of warmth
and yet they taste so rousingly sweet
A haunting, a haunter and the haunted
Two of us now entwined beneath the ruffled sheets
We cross a barrier that should not be broken
each and every night, as her softly tongue slips gently over mine...
It's dark now and she continues to smile
Her chest does not rise and fall, for she does not breathe
She suffocates me and yet I can't bear to let her go
She clings to me and yet I am equally drawn
It's daytime now and she has vanished
but I know she will return when the sun has

The tides that bind a fallen city,
Swirls of vision, animosity...
Lost beneath a silvered glass,
Watch and wait as hours pass.
You find yourself, now surreal,
Surrounded by clocks with a ticking squeal.
You walk to the kitchen, a hand you find,
A platter in which to place your mind.
The microwave dings, the toaster rings,
From the oven you pull, intestinal strings.
You stab with the knife, it ends in your head,
Place your mind into a toasted bread...
You walk to the car, you breathe in deep,
You look into your pocket; the bottle you keep.
You take a long swig, it's a magical drive,
Your soul falls asleep while you await to arrive.
Silence, broken silence,
Emptiness filled with eyes and ears,
Rainbows haunt and tear the skies,
Falling rain like bitter tears...
Broken and unspoken,
Suddenly you are bowed!
Your throat explodes with shards of glass,
It ends the life to which you vowed...
Each gurgle of blood that is caught on your lips,
The sputum you cough is fleck
We Need Villains NOT HeroesFor the longest time I have admired heroes. I imagined them to be people of change, people who would bring the world forward and take us to even greater heights. It was then however, that I realised the 'Human Obstacle'.We Need Villains NOT Heroes in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Humans as I discovered, perhaps in the most painful of ways, are rather unintelligent beings. They are driven by their core instincts no matter how much they wish to deny it. And the only difference between one and the next is how deeply they let those instincts consume them.
If you walk out into the streets, you can see the well-adjusted average man. Yet in his mind he is not considering the good he could do with his life, he is only thinking about the next step. Where will I go next? Who will I be dating, what shall I enjoy next in life?
There is no thought of altruism; no sense of assistance for another. He could walk down an alleyway filled with the homeless and nothing would change...
If that is the case, then what is the path of truth? Is it doing
Secrets Should be SilentSecrets Should be Silent:Secrets Should be Silent in Free Verse More Like This
What is in the nature of a secret?
It is not to be known, nor to be seen.
It is that which we bury beneath layers of deceit.
Why then, do we bury poetry?
why then, do we bury prose?
Why secret that which is meant to be seen,
And showcase that which is meant to be secret?
Are the words of our soul less important,
Than mere phrases designed to seek attention?
Are the words that we carve from experience,
Taken as less than a general phrase of emotion?
...No, I would hope not.
For I do as any other might,
And my skeletons are kept under lock and key.
For a secret displayed remains secret no longer;
Merely a gossip's fancy.

To spin a tale from but the smallest of phrases,
To create a fantastic adventure from a mundane experience.
It is painful indeed at times. When I am seated in this room,
Surrounded by the dull hum of failure and regret,
I ask myself, with eyes burning in the mirror,
Am I finally ready to give it all up?

One little gift that remains my own.

Inferno noticed two things when he entered the cafeteria. One, Red Alert was laughing, and two I do not want to know where that cannon came from. Inferno thought, staring, shocked by the appearance of a cannon that looked a lot like Megatrons fusion cannon.
Red Alert giggled as he rubbed the cannon possessively, murmuring something softly to it.
Inferno slowly began backing out of the room, optics wide. Silently he slid shut the door, and leaned against it, optics wide and unseeing. Hey, Inferno! Sideswipe said, waving. What are you doing?

It was purely a rhetorical statement. Ratchet did not believe that Red Alert would respond in any form or fashion. In fact, he was berating himself for speaking at all, when Red Alert twitched slightly, his voice capacitor attempting to work. Then, with a soft sigh, he slipped back into a deep recharge.
But it was much lighter this time, and Ratchet had the hope that Red Alert might actually wake up soon. Red Alert, I do believe that youre going to wake up.
Red Alert twitched slightly at Ratchets voice, and his even breathing seemed to pause for a moment.
Of course. Ratchet thought. He

The mech growled, bending slightly so he could look Red Alert in the optics. And why are you doing such a thing?

The door slid open, and Inferno walked inside, optics scanning the room for Red Alert worriedly. When Inferno spotted Red Alert, slumped over a table, and writing, albeit writing slowly, he frowned. Red? Are you alright?
Red Alert didnt even twitch. Infernos frown grew deeper as he cautiously made his way up to Red Alert, and tapped him on the shoulder. Red Alert screeched in surprise, nearly scrambling onto the tabletop from Infernos light touch. Inferno took a few steps backwards himself, optics wide. R-Red?

Red Alert could hear the confused babble of voices behind him as he made his way back to the party. True, they might be searching for him there, but instincts honed from dodging irate commanders about false alarms told him that they wouldnt look where they had already searched.
Arcwelder was just beginning to panic about his missing charge when Red Alert appeared on the edges of the crowd, casually making his way through. Arcwelder stormed over to where Red Alert was, scolding. Red Alert, I was worried that you had gone and vanished!

It is no longer about you may feel, but many autobots are worried that you are not safely protected- Prime snorted softly at that, remembering how three vorns back Red Alert had risked his life to protect the Arc and its occupants -and to give them better morale we wish to put someone better in Red Alerts place.

We have to get him somewhere quiet, and small. Ratchet sighed. And leave him alone, except to fill his tanks with energon. No loud noises, nothing that might disturb the process. If it does, he might be unable to wake up at all, and hell rust.
