And often the deepest flaws start with the desire for complete perfection.
For once many years ago it is said a certain man,
Wanted to discover something that no one else can.
He told himself it was for helping others but the grim reality,
Was that he wanted recognition and unending glory.
He looked long and did not care what the sacrifice,
In money, time, youth, and in the end he did not mind to take life.
For would not God forgive it in the large

And blot out all the moments I lied.
Can the mistakes ever be made up for?
Am I not worth it anymore?

Granted, he’d just saved her from a group of ogres who had the nasty habit of eating the people they captured, and their bodies now decorated the ground, but really. If someone is really that scared they should hide it until they were alone, and quietly shake it off, none of this sobbing and gushing. Men were much better at this.

Your eyes. Your laugh. The way you smiled at me that night as we watched the stars turn into nothing, fading into the soft warmth of morning. You blushed and smiled as you called me your angel, your love, your one and only.
I thought you meant it. I thought you loved me.

What I BelieveI believe in a place called homeWhat I Believe in Free Verse More Like This
Whispering words of welcome,
Familiar and neverchanging.
I believe in family;
Blood and bones, knitted and formed,
Beautiful binds that make us who we are.
I believe in an end,
Fiery clouds and raging winds
That will sweep us away into a new tomorrow.
I believe in a beginning,
The heaviness of darkness parting away
To reveal new light. In silence I wait
For the music to rise from the seas,
And songs to ride in off the plains, bringing a new day.
What I believe will always beand always be true.

"...Though in time the finally bent. Every word, every one...every word...."
And so just like mirrors and ice break apart,
You reached into me and you pulled out my heart
With long slender fingers, a kiss and a sigh,
So gentle you were as you led me to die.
The lights were so bright, killing my fears
You held me close as you wiped away my tears...
The words meant nothing from that day on,
But still I will wait for you with each passing dawn.

"'...I will wait for you,' she said. 'Endlessly.'"
As I was dying, she promised she'd wait-
She lied to her love as he suffered his fate.
I suffered in silence, my heart ripped away;
I waited in agony for the next day.
It came. It passed. I suffered still.
"I'll wait," she whispered, "I always will."
But then came the wolves, and she left me to the night.
I died alone, swallowed by my fright.
I cannot forget, but I still forgive.
She was my death and my reason to live.

"...I can still hear them today...strangely, they seem beautiful now, though they outlast my love."
Moans turn to whispers of love never known,
I find this place haunting when here all alone;
As memories and dreams and words once so cold
Remind me of warm nights and sunsets of gold....
My poems mean nothing to the trees that surround,
No one cares, here in Decemberunderground.

"Walked into our world and made horrible sounds...."
Won't you follow me down
Into worlds that we made,
Into pools where we'll drown?
As water forms ice
And a quiet moan slips
Through the smothering silence
That clings to my lips...
This place is a menace to thoughts of the heart,
It lulls you to sleep and then tears you apart....
But come without fear, for the things that I feel
Are not of this world; in no way are they real.
Take my hand, child, and look into the snow;
You may see the face of a loved one you know.

Waiting to shimmer away from me
As days pass and seasons change.
You are a mockingbird,
Testing out your wings,
New to the world
And ready for flight.
You are a whisper,
Fleeting into silence
An important memory,
Here and then gone.
You are mine,

The time was enough for the gears of my mind to churn around about our situation and formulate some sort of plan. Of course, the only plan coming to mind was to slaughter as many of the mindless glitches as possible.GMOCT R2 Final in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Of course, I had many things on my mind an hour ago but I was honestly trying to focus on how to attain our goal for this round. I couldn't seem to help it though as my mind kept going back to the random zombie movies and games I remembered. No matter how I looked at the situation, we were in basically the same scenario.
Naturally I felt relieved
GMOCT R2 part 3 I felt more comfortable walking around with Scherzo than I had been looking about for Mike on my own. I wondered if he was either looking for or hiding from Dyxo; I couldn't really tell sometimes. They didn't seem like a pair that would be friends and at the same time I don't think they could've been closer. Maybe they were what Mike calls frenimies with each other? I decided to change the subjects on my mind to something currently more beneficial.GMOCT R2 part 3 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

He simply patted my head and looked in my ear and put on a big enough smile that I couldn't help returning one.

Miseo's MusingsThe only sound thing about life is that it changes consistently. Ups, downs, that never ending need to capture it all in one way and shape or form. Through the artist who paints with his brushes, the photographer taking her snapshots, to the cinema director just trying to capture that one perfect moment. We, as a people, want these moments. We glorify and thank life every moment we live with no more than a breath.Miseo's Musings in Short Stories More Like This

A Study in Green Chapter 1The peculiar gentleman in the flat by all means appeared as though death's grace itself had just walked towards me. He was certainly a spectacle to behold; His golden eyes pierced everyone in the room with an all too hateful glare as the recognition of familiarity slowly glazed over his form; a green jacket going to his knees and a baggy tan shirt matched only by a pair of pants just as baggy with many pockets. The entire outfit was made more laughable by the messy brown locks only covered by an obviously too large green hat.A Study in Green Chapter 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I was reading horror stories at midnight one night.
You know, entertaining myself through fright.
Unfortunately, someone knocked on the door.
At least, I think it was someone.
Best to be sure.
Maybe it could be Elanor?
Of course a small bird flew inside instead.
And perched itself atop the hearth behind my head.
"Nevermore" It constantly cawed and chided.
Reminding me, I decided, of dear sweet Elanor.

Playing PretendAnd she closes her eyes,Playing Pretend in Free Verse More Like This
Takes a deep breath,
Falls back into the person,
Everyone wants her to be.
Resumes the role,
She's expected to play.
Pleases the world,
But never herself.
She wants to be perfect,
She wants to be adored.
She wants to be loved,
So she loses herself.
She tries to be content,
With a pseudo-love,
When she doesn't feel it,
But doesn't want to be alone.
She looks down at the patterns,
Crossing her wrist.
Remembers feeling alone,
And doesn't want to go back.
Doesn't want more scars,
Doesn't want to be there.
Doesn't want to be alone.
So she plays pretend instead.

How can you,
Expect me to be dealing,
With all of these issues,
Stuck in my mind?
Too many problems,
With solutions yet to find.
And you've left me alone,
Now, here by myself,
As I enter my room,
And throw my things on the shelf.
I lie down in bed,
But thoughts keep me awake,
Images of you and me,
Are ones I cannot shake.
I cannot hold the emotions in;
Once again tears begin to fall.
And all I want is to hear from you,
Your voice on a simple phone call.
But wishes are wishes and nothing more,
We can't always get what we want.

Like the warm sunshine on a summer day,
Shining on my face, blinding me with its radiance,
You look down at me, smiling.
Suddenly the cold and snow has melted away.
Your eyes, so deep and caring,
Stare into mine as we sit together,
And I'm hoping that this will last,
Hoping that some things really are forever.
I travel back in my mind,
The first time you kissed me,
The awkward silence,
And I'd gladly do it all again.
To my sophomore semi,
Where your tie matched my dress,
And we danced; slightly awkward,
But it was the highlight of my night.
Our very first date, at the bowling alley.
Bowling was fun enough,
But when you sug

With my head leaning,
Against your chest.
I can still taste your lips,
When they danced with mine,
And I never thought,
Anything had tasted better.

Once she steps into his car,
All their worries slip away.
He pulls into the parking lot,
She hesitates, opens the door,
They walk, his hand brushes her arm,
She holds in a smile, prays for more.
Closer and closer, in the darkness of the night,
He wants to hold her hand, she wants to hold him tight.
Both of them wanting, in the light of the moon,
Both too afraid it will be over too soon.
Inside the music is loud,
There are people everywhere.
She's just glad to be with him,
About the noise she doesn't care.
Minutes turn to hours,
As they sit there and talk,

The oranges, reds, and yellows,
Against the sky their brightness shows.
And there is a smell on the breeze,
Of fresh apples and raked up leaves.
A family is gathered in their front yard,
Stuffing old clothes and tying off the ends,
Now scarecrows sit finished, smiling new friends.
Still the kids laugh, and jump in leave piles,
All of them sporting sweatshirts and smiles.
The day finally turns dark, and they head inside,
Filling their dinner plates with turkey and potatoes,
And as they talk and eat, their happiness shows.
Though the moon is out, and theyll soon be asleep,

And I can still remember days spent when we were little,
Playing games with you and laughing all the time.
I remember the closet filled with games, just for us.
And solving five hundred piece puzzles that seemed so hard.
We would play poker keno and bet M&Ms.
And snuggle up with the quilts you made for each of us.
To everyone you met, you were just so kind.
Smiles and laughter were never hard to find.
Always there to help, youd pick us up if we fell,
In every possible way, youre a true angel.

How good life could be,
If only Id looked around,
And seen how bright,

Thats its my choice,
To find happiness,
And to see how,
Bright I shine.
And Im finally free,
Flying so very high.
And all that I need,
All Ive ever wanted,
Is here, inside of me.
Or anything thats,
Gonna get in my way now.
Im stronger than I was before,
And I dont wanna live like that,
Im ready to stand up,
And spread my wings.
Runaway PrincessOnce upon a time,Runaway Princess in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
In a faraway town,
There lived a lovely princess,
Who was gettin real down.
In the big old castle,
Her fates already sealed.
Trapped away from her prince,
Her heartll never be healed.
She longs to see him again,
Feel his gentle embrace,
Look up at him,
And his smilin face.
So she runs and runs,
Away from the kingdom.
Shed rather live as a peasant,
Than have to live without him.
Cause when hes there,
The world feels right.
And all she sees is him,
All she hears is him,
All she needs is him.
Shes out on the streets now,
Shivering in the cold,
But she keeps on walking,
