So why do I feel so alone?
I haven't had the roughest life,
So why then, am I so cautious?
So upset all the time?
Waking up in the middle of the night,
Shaking from a nightmare?

Looking out at the sun,
and thinking it should be rain?
That's not me!
What's going on in my mind?
Why do I feel this way?
I don't like this...
I don't want this...
Can you take this ice
cold pain away?
This isn't me...
I don't complain like this,
I don't know what's up...
I just don't feel like myself
Don't complain, idiot.
I'm okay, really.

Under the Full MoonThe brilliance of it shines pale grey-white like a seagull's feathers in the sea of black inky oil, giving her the only light there was. The leaves in hues of red and shades of brown, yellows and oranges as vibrant as a stoplight and as dim as the mucky slime that they call baby food. They fall, floating gracefully down to the ground from their uppermost perch in the city's version of a forest canopy. As a baby-food-orange colored leaf breaks from its tree, the wind picks up and goes from summer-breeze worthy to those great winter gusts, causing a girl nearby to shiver and pull her coat closer, realizing it is now Autumn.Under the Full Moon in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

I see a dark sky,
There is no moon tonight,
And there are clouds,
So no stars.
I can hear his footsteps-
chasing me through the street-
Or are those just people,
Walking with me?
I taste the salty tears,
They trickle down my cheeks,
Leaking out my eyes,
Clogging my throat so I can't speak.
I can feel the raindrops,
Landing on my head,
Soaking through my clothes,
Reminding me of words said.
The smell of blood permeates the air,
Reminding me of why I'm running out here.

Jack smiled at this. "Glad to hear it."
Jamie turned toward [Name] and kneeled down so he could be her height. "So, who are you?"

Jack shook his head, "Nuh-uh. Sorry, snowflake, jacket stays with me."

Jack sighed and rolled over onto his back, dropping the controller. "Aww, but then I can't show off my battle scars." He made playful puppy eyes at her and she sighed, pushing him gently.
"Fine, at least repair it, though."
Jack smiled and sat up, "Wanna go for a walk?"

She felt as though sand was running down her arm, covering her burn mark. The wound the arrow had made in her back felt like a bullet hole.
"[Name], don't worry! You're going to be fine!" Jack sounded more like he was trying to assure himself as he brushed a few hairs back behind her ear.
She stared up at Jack as her eyes began to flutter in an attempt to keep them open.
"Please, don't shut your eyes," Jack begged as he grabbed her hand, squeezing it tightly in despair.

Jack looked at the other guardians, "I'm going to introduce [Name] to North first, since we're already here. Why don't you guys meet us at your places?"

It was a silver ring engraved with snowflakes, each snowflake had frost filling it to the brim.

Her mom chuckled at her daughter and jokingly said, "I now pronounce you man and wife." Then she sighed, "Technically, you are." [Name] looked over at her mom in confusion.

Her breath caught in her throat. Where am I? She thought in shock. She was inside of some dark cave with small fluorites sticking out of the walls. [Name] blinked a few times to adjust her eyes, but she couldn't see anything other than darkness. She could only see about five feet around her, if not less.
[Name] froze at the sound of a dark laugh from the darkness. She watched as the man from before emerged from the darkness, his hands behind his back as he walked.
"Well, well. Looks like the princess finally woke up." The man lifted his eyes, giving her a glare. [Name] shifted back as well as she could, "W—who are you?"

Jack frowned and floated in front of her as she gripped a tree branch so she wouldn't fall over. She definitely didn't have the strength she used to.
"I'm just worried, [Name]. You could give birth any minute."

She sighed and began to walk again, panting slightly.
Jack matched her pace and kept a worried eye on her. "Are you sure you don't want me to carry you home? You look tired."

Jack still looked unhappy so she finally spoke up. "Why are you so unhappy? Usually it's the pregnant one who is unhappy. Jack, just imagine the baby. He--or she--will be beautiful."

Its become difficult to experience this kind of loneliness

And most of all
This stabbing pain in my back

So trapped here inside myself

But now I am dreaming the nightmare again

Over run with the phantoms
Of long suppressed regrets
Broken promises and heartbreaks

Where black shadows flow up walls
And overtake the edges of hopeless dreams
Its core is dead and maggots have begun devour its insides
All love and life is gone
They will leave behind an empty rotting shell
Hallowed and forgotten
Just like the faith that it once held whole in a warm embrace
Nothing will be left but the vast darkness that surrounds it
Echoing in the abbess will forever be the victims of such a cold world
The nothingness that makes up this place, where not even Gods eyes can reach
Is mixed in with the emotionless words its hosts speaks
They cut down every attempt to breathe life once more into my soul
Not wanting to be held or comforted the host must suffer alone
Cradling my dead and decaying soul
Held in limp lifeless hands I stare at it
So long since its been touched by life
To long since it has felt love

You walk in my shadow
Controlling my strings
Whispering to me idealistic thoughts
Wanting me to make right your wrongs
Writing my life like a Bible
Painting pretty proper pictures of me
But thats not me
You draw a beautiful porcelain doll in your head
Yet if its supposed to be me
Why is she smiling?
I dont smile unless its fake
How can I be happy?
When Im living your dreams
I cannot speak unless there lies
Because if you knew what I was really thinking
What I really want to say
Its would surely turn your scenery upside down
Not allowed to say what I want to say
Because it differs from the ideal image youve embraced
Youve come to love me as a porcelain doll
Looking so sweet and happy yet strong
Words only spoken when asked a direct question
Promises of the FuturePromises of the Future in Free Verse More Like This
When our paths lead us into darkness
When all hope and love is lost
Just as the cold silence begins to take over
I might not be there
You may be trapped
And all alone
But I still may not come
Not because your cries fall on deaf ears
But because I may not be Me
I could be just as helpless as you
For I am only human
So please dont force me to make promises
I cant see our futures
I dont own a crystal ball
I love you
And I always will
But it would kill me if I broke this promise
I would want to save you
But the depression and lost feelings may have me too
I may be fallen alongside you
No longer thinking with a clear mind
I wish to save you
But when the times comes
I may not know how
Let's Dance. Said the WolfLet's Dance. Said the Wolf in Free Verse More Like This
"Let's Dance." Said the She Wolf.
The trees sway gently in the breeze
Creaking as their limbs are pulled
This is all that can be heard in the damp forest
The wind playfully pulling on the green leaves
The birds songs ring out sweetly
Unaware of the world below them
Hard work is ever present
The ants that carry food back to their home
A mother doe that feeds her week old faun
Or the she wolf that hunts the doe for her pups
The forest becomes a stage for a beautiful dance
A dance between life and death
Predator and prey
Two mothers trying to live another day
Breathing every moment so they can feed their young
The birds and the ants pay them no mind
The soft melody of the morning birds song acts as lively background music
A dance being as the mothers run up and over logs,
Rushing threw a stream of crisp clear water
Clouding it with the mixed up sand,
Dodging trees and bushes
Two hearts beating together for the same reason
Every where the birds sing along with the
They Watch You SleepThey Watch You Sleep:They Watch You Sleep in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There are many bards who can tell you tales
Of the creeping shadows that come at night
We've seen them crawling along the walls
In the absence of the light...
On the darkest of nights, cold and chill
You can hear them quietly gibbering.
They speak of things that you cannot know
Which is why they are always whispering.
It is said that they will know the future
and that they know the fate of every man
They are here to watch his path unfold
or perhaps to have him damned...
These sick and twisted animals
Bear a stench that is rather foul
But you will only smell this scent
if they choose to remove their cowl
It is said that their eyes are like obsidian doorways;
Which hold the key to the depths of the mind.
But none have the courage to look within them;
Afraid of what they'll find...
So my only advice to the weary traveller
Is to believe in the safety of the tavern
Do not look toward the darkest of corners
or you might just stir their cavern...

a horror beginning its birth. The serpent will slither
into a moistened cave and the blood will spill from broken lips
The secret was hidden beneath the trees, where the lovers
were kissed and never told. Yet the stains remain upon the grass.
Never to be erased...
How many times will I return, to a place I wish
I'd never see. Perhaps it is a way for me
To think of that which I regret...
But the man would never remind himself, of the horror
unleashed beneath falling leaves. The petals bear witness
to the struggled screaming, muffled by hands and feet.
A choking embodiment of sweat and tears and the final
release of a beating heart. The act is done and motion
has stopped, so now the vomiting begins...
An act of purity, to cleanse and expunge. It is
made to deny the gnawing guilt, for all that remains
is plain to see: a puddle of red on a sea of green.

AddictMy dear little man, now tired and weary,Addict in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The softness of sleep becomes dark and dreary.
In vivid dreams you see a bloodied ghost
Of the one you love and hate the most...
She tore into your veins,
And set them ablaze.
Even as you walked,
In a sickening haze.
You stole from the weak,
To feed your habit.
Blood upon the altar,
As you chased the rabbit.
A rabbit that enslaved,
Deep down the rabbit hole.
Inhaled like a blanket,
For the soul that was cold.
As the breathing became rapid,
And the vomiting begins.
You'll chase another rabbit,
To compound your sin.
And as your sins will grow,
So too will the madness.
It sinks into the heart,
And begins warping the canvas.
It paints it in bitterness,
The colour of black...
The colour of voices,
That lash at your back.
So dear little man, over pure white grains,
Are you done with this life of an endless pain?
I'll give you a solution, you need only apply...
For the man who is an addict, must surely die!

The flicker of life soon fading from their eyes.

For the fool who fell where he lies.

As the feeling of life itself
Crumbles beneath each ounce of pain.
Needles slowly piercing into the body,
Paralyzing nerves and expressions.
A mask of pure horror; living terror,
Kept alive on the barest limit of the border.
Such tempting features,
Leave me eager to slip a knife beneath flesh.
Ripping soft layers of epidermal mache,
Tanned and dried, woven slowly into a loving mask.
And with my latest acquisition complete,
Only twenty spaces remain...

He can hear the bass playing as the drum sets the mood
So to warm them up, he begins with an introduction:
Though we have come here tonight as individuals
I believe that we will leave here as friends
Because no one else, except a friend
Would be willing to hear you scream.
And so, tonight, we'll be playing our song "Scream"
He takes a deep breath and the guitar begins to wail
The drumming heats up and he knows that this is his moment
In a voice that is low and filled with emotion
He slowly begins to sing his song:
When first you came upon this path
You thought that you had seen the last of-
Nightmares crawling from your dreams!
You hear the sound of a thousand screams and they-

And you're just filled with so much hate that you-

Clinging to what sanity I have left.
But it is slowly slipping.
And I shall let the madness take me.
It will be all over.
And no one shall be none the wiser.

I lived in a house
The house was small
And the walls were tall
They surrounded me
Day after day
From what I could not be
I was a child
Who played in my room
With toys and games
And a loving creature or two
I had a small teddy bear
That I would hug and hold
Playing dresses and tea tables
Riding horses in the stables
Then I grew up
Up and up, I grew
I began to grow tall
And soon, there were no more walls
My daddy teddy bear
Fell upon my bed
As I rose up
To see him, my father, again
Then the house changed
It moved to another place
And inside, there were
A flight of stairs, blurs
I couldn't see a clear image
My eyes were marked with fuzz
My sight grew weary and old
All because of life's hold
Then there was a light
Within this house's walls
They said to me once again
His life would not surely end
My teddy bear father
Then sat upright
Against the bed stand
With a light and prayer in his hand
I grew out of that room
That house with small walls

It is the place of the gardener

Of the house near that flower affair

And gave her the white roses
She denied them, twice

The flowers grew about
In their bridal dresses and gowns
But the gardener's hands
Remained dusted from the ground
I watched as she clipped the petals
The broken twigs and branches
As she kneeled beside the irises
Reviving life in the sovereign stances
A morning came and went
Again, I had returned with poem
And presented her the roses
But twice, she denied them
I sat on the limbs of the old tree
As I looked upon her figure
Her standing posture was crooked
Amongst the beautiful flower moor
I found myself growing with age
As I slept within the tree
Then I awoke to a frightening sound
Of crows made of ivory
The gardener had vanished

Her white clothes all blinding to the eye
I watched her, mesmerized
But then her clothes began to turn black.
The ink splotches came, little by little
As she spoke each tiny white lie
With an angel's voice she spoke
Words that drove me down from the sky
Her feathers, now falling apart
Drift longingly upon my face
Now, in the dark, I see her
As a raven in an angel's place
The Dream TellerFeel the slender hand upon your chinThe Dream Teller in Free Verse More Like This
As he whispers sweet and tender things
Into your ear. Shivering as your thoughts grow dim,
You fall back into the darkness, into the dream.
The dream of the endless night.
Or the moonlit nightmare.
For the dream teller never tells what is at stake
Nor what has you lulled into sleep.
He is there and gone, leaving you in your hellish state,
Lying amongst the company of demons. Don't. Forget. To blink.

And these fatal wounds are true..
as your captain in command
I have a few lasts tasks for you...
Tell my wife that i love her,
and that she meant the world to me
And tell her sorry for the emotions
that I was too dumb to see
Tell my son that I love him
He was to be my pride and joy
And tell him im sorry i wont be there
When he trades his wood in for my sword.
Tell my daughter that i love her
She is so strong just like her mother
Tell her let no man hold her back
and always look out for her brother
Tell my brother, that noble king
as he sits upon his throne
to watch over my mourning family
make sure they still have a home...
And last but not least...
I want you to lead these men home
And i want to thank you for sticking by me
off the battlefield and on...
Now go fulfill your destiny
And remember what i have asked
if these are my final words
then it be what our enemies lack.

I am happy, Can't you see?
A smile on my face
There's nothing wrong with me
A funny little story
It's not that hard to pretend
But it's far from the truth
I just really want a friend
Someone who is fun and kind
Someone to make me smile
Someone to make memories with
And won't set my heart on fire
Someone who I can relate to
Someone to understand
Being weird isn't cool
but its better than being bland
Someone that can dry up my tears
And protect me in the night
Someone that can save me from my fears
And help me through my fright
If anyone is listening
If anyone chooses to care
I am pushed to my limits
much more than I can bear...

Into the cold, dark feeling in her eyes
Still seeing a smile
Always seeing a smile
They say it's the window to her heart
but they acted as telescopes to her mind
Only seeing darkness
Always seeing darkness
She locked away any other means of seeing her pain
Never daring to entrust her burden to another
Still carrying weight
Always carrying weight
She was someone everyone could turn to for help
She went out of her way to make you feel well
Only distracting herself
Always distracting herself
Now she has permanently released the weight
People finally realizing what she was
Only a little too late
Always a little too late

Is everything alright?
Don't you tell me that it's nothing
I see you toss n turn all night
You know I would give you anything
I'd bleed to make you smile
But if you're busy pointing fingers
I'll refuse to stand on trial
I'll walk away from everything
If you tell me that it makes it all better
I was here when life went to hell
And I stayed faithful through all weather
You're Killing me (Killing me)
You're Killing me
You ask me why I still fight
I don't know the answer
I'm trying to believe that We'll change
You tell me that I'm uptight
But you're not any better
No matter what I'm always to blame
So perfectly Ignited
I sit and watch our love burn
Tearing at the sight of the flames
Can't be the only one who fights it
When is it gonna be your turn
To be the one in love and insane...
I'm on the outside looking in
Because You barricaded all entry
I just wanna stand by your side
But it seems like I'm just an enemy
I'm fighting an army of hate
but I'm weak witho

I sit alone... waiting for a change
I watch as the world, passes me by
but my cruel days are always the same.
My beautiful face seems to
be the only thing that matters.
I am a seashell, pretty,
yet empty inside.
I watch others play with envy,
"Why couldn't that be me?"
But none of them are to blame
I'd be the first to get rid of me...
I hate how my face is
always frozen, like a mask.
Your smile is so pretty, they say.
To me, it feels painted on.
I went down to the stream
Where I go to be alone
That is where I first saw her,
Hugging her knees, on her own.
Sitting at the river,
like calls like.
I never thought being alone
would be frightening, but I saw him.
She was beautiful as ever
Her face has no comparison
but why is she all alone?
Too nervous to begin questioning.
"Can I help you?"
Were the first words
I had ever uttered without
Needing to fake a smile.
"Just enjoying the view"
I muttered trying not to choke
I do not deserve her company
She must th

What is Peace
What is pleasure
What is a smile
without a frown
what is the sun
without the moon
What is me
somethings in life you experience for a reason
To do deal with the snow while your going through the seasons
What's the point of a smile if you don't know how to frown
If you never felt the struggle you should not receive a crown
Once you know how it is like to go from the bottom to the top
Then you can truly make a difference for the ones who could not
And no matter what they say you know you changed the world a little
And turned a war to peace And saved a life that was belittled

But now your just a complication
I had thought of you an angel
But you were the devil's cruel creation
I truly fell for your illusion
and I tried to be amusing
You're asking me forgiveness
My heart has had enough abusing
I don't give out many second chances
And I'll barely return your hopeful glances
He wasn't all you hoped to be
And I'm glad you finally understand this
But now i wave to you goodbye
without a second thought in mind
I pray to God that you forget me
Because it hurts to pass you by

Cold. All I could remember at first was the cold. It covered my skin like the meat around my bones and filled my lungs with its thickness. I opened my eyes to a blanket of white all around me. I was amongst a very large field, possibly a road, engulfed by white. Trees stood boldly on either side of the area and multiple hills blocked my line of sight of the path ahead and behind me. Getting to my feet I realized I was ill prepared to be in this weather. A t-shirt, a hooded jacket, bandage like glove on my right hand, cargo pants and some boots, well, at least the boots would be useful. As I studied my attire, I noticed two necklaces around my neck, one were a pair of dog tags. "Justin 'Ghost' Scythe", I read to myself. I assumed that was my name but wondered for a moment why my parents would make 'Ghost' my middle name.
I then examined the other necklace; it was a gold, heart-s

Fighting back thoughts that haunt my past.
"what's the matter, you look really sad?".
A simple Question, that nobody asked.
I hate to be defined by the things that i did,
And be robbed of second chance for me to live...
But somehow the world may be a better place,
if the rest of it never got to see my face.
But i wont stand here and complain of my fate,
too many chances i had and didn't take.
Now my route is set and ill follow it to my end.
As I've given up my search for someone to call a friend .
I just Silently Continue to do my Lonely Acts,
Walking along this barren Path.

Left me all alone
The Phantom in your picture
Just searching for a home
You tell me that I'm nothing
Not so hard to believe
You told me that you love me
But that I can not see
I let my perfect guard down
Some how I let you in
I didn't mean to bug you
I just wanted a friend
Now You and everyone else
Will be driven away
I'll just remain by myself
I'll never be okay...
