Good vs. ...Bad? Everyone has an enemy. Even if they don't know it.Good vs. ...Bad? in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Believe me. I have an enemy (Or two or three or four... suffice to say, I have more than one.). Vampier has one. (See above.). Even Samantha has one!
Believe me, you have an enemy.
Sometimes the animosity isn't obvious. Sometimes neither of you really understand it, but you may both perhaps have some sort of dislike of the other. Eventually, someday, you'll know what I mean. Take me, for instance. (Ignore all the ones I put in parenthesis, please.) When it began, I didn't outright hate Diavolo, but we were hardly ever able to have a civil conversation with the other. Or even Vampier. When I first met him, we didn't like each other one bit. Every time we met, we had some sort of spar. Nothing to kill, of course, but you get the point.

The Problem with Pleasantries I've never known a person who hasn't let me down before. No expectation I hold ever stands up long enough for me to enjoy it. After a while, I began to stop caring. And I do say person. My best friends are vampires.The Problem with Pleasantries in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Which is odd for a hunter, I'll be the first to admit. The job of a hunter is to kill the demons, mainly. They're the real problem. But other, wayward, creatures can sometimes be dispatched without too heavy of a remorseful feeling. Werewolves, if they become too violent, if they leave the woods more and more and attack towns or neighborhoods. Vampires if... well, vampires, for most hunters, are an exception. The others will kill them without blinking an eye, never mind that they used to be humans too.
I have a unique view on the matter, though. As I've said, practically my only friends are vampires. I fell in love with one, for a very short time. I've met their god.

Down a few bottles
Maybe even sniff a couple of lines
Just for the excitement
This life has become so dull
In this boring town
With the same 'ol surroundings
Nothing ever happens here
So lets take a turn
Maybe for the worse
Or even just for fun
I need to learn from my own mistakes
And not be told how to live my life by you
Unless you walk in these shoes
And live with these voices
Don't dare tell me how to live.
My Light?And it is times like theseMy Light? in Free Verse More Like This
When you simply don't know what to do
You just sit alone in your room
The wheels turn in your head
Oh, those creaking sounds of pain
Your head begins to pound
And all you can do is sit there
Motionless as can be
You are petrified of the shadows
Squeezing yourself tight
Simply reminding yourself you are real
You go through these cycles alone
Than they come alone
With the cutest smile
And the nicest voice
It's beyond refreshing
Than, when the night comes again
You hide in your room
Afraid to show them your true self
Than you start to cry once more
Only wanting to end your suffering
To take away all the pain
Yet, you think before you act
They probably won't like the new scars
So you simply cry,
Because this is the only option
You feel empty and hurt
Yet special when you talk to them
It soon starts to become an obsession
A small light you try to use in your dark
Is this going to be your new candle?
Will this make the shadows go away again
If only for a while?

Because if we were all made the same
Where would we be now?

I sprang out of bed and began rifling through the clothes on the second shelf of my closet. "Thank God," I said in relief, holding up my skin-colored tights, black halter leotard with the teal corset stitching, and my short black spandex shorts. My neon purple sports bra was lying neatly on the floor. I was unsure if that was
clean, but whatever. It spared a run-in with my mother.
I got dressed and wrapped a few hair elastics around my wrist. I grunted, rummaging around my desk. "Foot undies, foot undies," I chanted, and found them on my chair.
I grabbed my team sweatshirt and threw on a pair of old purple flip flops. A quick sweep of my roomphone and iPod. And my dance bag must still be on my hanger in the studio's closet.
I made a mad dash out the door and piled into my car, pulling out of the driveway without hesitation. It was 6:10 now. I had woken up at 6:00.

For I am threatened with your blade to my throat.
Hold me now,and don't let me unravel
The only time I dare stare at you,
Are the times you purposely dont't care.
I remember everything we've been throug.
How deeply do you need to bury it?
A year of love seemed like forever,
And another eternity of threats is yet to come,
but I just can't..
When the blades were once your own--
But now I can't tell
Where your scars fade,
and where mine start to bleed.
Talk to me now,
Or I'll be the first to speak,
even while you're keep yourself warm with her.
Do you even need me?
Will you pray with me?

The comfort between Cory and I went out the door with him. I sat back down and started in on my short story for creative writing. Mind as well, now that my laptop was out. I plugged my headphones in and tuned into some Asking Alexandria.
Cory disappeared. The back door was open, so he was probably taking care of the trash.
Three paragraphs in, and I was totally enveloped by the story, as if I were living it. The page limit was approximately ten pages, but I was already on twelve.
I felt a draft on the back of my neck. "You're an amazing writer."
"Thanks." I kept my back turned to him as I rounded out the very ending of the
story. I was sad it was over now.
I pushed over on the small stool, and patted the space beside me. "You can read it, if you'd like."
He sat down. Our hips were touching. He shifted to turn the computer screen his way a little, and his arms

He then proceeded to untangle the belt of his own skintight jeans and wriggled out of them, dropping them to his ankles before stepping out.

She found me. Even in the darkness, the middle of the night, with the tall grass enveloping me, she found me.
I knew it was her when the screen door slammed shut and the laces of her beat up Converse scratched against the deck. Her mother always complained she needed to pick up her feet and walk like a lady, but she always snorted and rolled her eyes.
She was a lot better at this than I was.
"Mercy." She laid down in the grass, right next to me. She was the only one who didn't call me by my real name, Mercedes. She said I was too perfect and beautiful for such a

They lived in a grand Victorian mansion

Alice was fascinated by them
She sensed there was another world there somewhere
She thought she could see figures moving on the opposite side of the mirror
So she stretched out her hand
And someone grabbed her arm and pulled her through the glass mirror
She was in a dance hall full of people
They were all dressed in black and watching the band on stage
The band playing on stage were called The Rasmus
And they were playing a great tune called In The Shadows
All the crowd were going wild with excitement
There were some strange figures in the crowd

And The White Rabbit checking his watch all the time

Once the audience was over she would return to her rooms
In the privacy of her own room she would cut her wrists

She had many suitors but none that she loved

He hadn't even bothered to change out of his nightclothes, a large white shirt that was worn by his father, Vincent Phantomhive. Somehow Mey-Rin was able to convince him to wear a pair of pants, which he tore from his closet wrenching them around his waist then continued his work.
"Young master," Mey-Rin calls as Ciel sits atop his luggage bouncing up and down a few times befo

Finally, after week and weeks of waiting and months of recovering the Phantomhive household seemed to be back to normal. Well, as normal as normal could be. The maid scurried about knocking over dishes and cleaning up her mess, the cook was busy perfecting his flam thrower techniques, the gardener contently snipping away at the trees and the butler by his master's side as he should be.
Ciel scribbles his name on yet another black line, completing the latest transaction with a supplier in Asia. He plucks his pen down, enjoying the sound as it hits the desk signifying a day of work finished. The young earl reclines back into his chair shutting his eyes for a brief moment of rest, glad to have earned it. How hectic his life has become in the few months he's encountered the Queen's Spider, Alois Trancy and his double crossing butler, Claude Fastus-a fellow demon like his own butler, Sebastian Michaelis.
Lately everything seemed like it was crumbling beneath his feet, the chessboard that ha

And taking my breath away
I try to find a way out
But I'm trapped and here to stay
Against my will
I'm locked inside
This room that's filled
With fears and lies
I've tried so hard
To resist these horrid things
But unfortunately it
Just isn't that easy
So I think I will forever stop
And simply just give in
Give into this consuming darkness
Because these walls are almost completely closed in
UglyShe painted on her makeupUgly in Free Verse More Like This
To mask away her imperfections
She let her hair grow out
To cover up her true complexions
She decided to stop eating
To get her perfect body
But she was still unsatisfied
With the way she was looking
That's when the scars appeared
As if they would ease the pain
They coated her arms like sleeves
But it didn't change a thing
She was still a sad little girl
Who felt her world was ending
She hated herself so much
She was her own worst enemy
She had completely given up on turning
Into something that wasn't meant to be
All this trouble she went through
Was because he decided to call her ugly
It's Complicated...I thought it was bestIt's Complicated... in Free Verse More Like This
Everything I did
Telling you that it
Was undoubtedly the end
The end of something
That never really began
The end of something
That you felt was so grand
I did nothing wrong
Well at least in my books
But according to you
It was entirely my fault
A Poem...Once I wrote a poem on a small blue posted-noteA Poem... in Free Verse More Like This
And it was about the spring
Because that's what the season was
My friends thought it was really cool
And my mother thought it was beautiful
So she hung it on the fridge
For everybody to see
And I felt very special and loved
About a year ago, I wrote a different poem
It was written on a piece of notebook paper
And it was about heaven
Because I thought it was a beautiful thing
My friends said it was fine
And my mother said it was nice
And she put it in the filing cabinet
I felt left out, but that's okay.
About a month or two ago, I wrote another poem
And it was written on the back of an old homework assignment
It was about hell and what I though came after death
Because that's what was on my mind
And My friends though it was weird
And my mother didn't even care
So I shoved it in my trash can
And tried to forget
Today I wrote a poem
It was on a crumpled up piece of paper
And it was about my final goodbyes
Because that's what it was really al

ParasiteI'm not sure when I got itParasite in Free Verse More Like This
Sometime long ago
I'm not sure how I got it
But it's something I'm dying to know
It controls my every thought
And manipulates my actions
It causes me endless pain
That's how it gets its satisfaction
It isolates me from the world
So that I painfully suffer alone
It whispers things into my ears
About how it will never ever go
This parasite that consumes me
I can no longer try to fight it
So I will submerse into the darkness
And that will finally be the end of it
AverageOnce there was this girlAverage in Free Verse More Like This
Just your average girl
Who went to your average school
With your average friends
And average boys
And average school work
And every day when this average girl came home
She ran upstairs to her not so average room
To blast her not so average music
To which she would write her not so average poetry
Instead of doing her average school work
And then she would wonder about her parents
Her not so average parents
With their not so average jobs
And would, every day when they got home
Drink more than the average person should
And every day her not so average father
Would beat on her not so average mother
And then he would find this average girl
And do some not so average things to her
And this seemingly average girl
Had some not so average scars
Running up and down her average arms
Because she thought it would help ease
Her not so average pain
The pain she dealt with everyday
And every day this average girl would fall asleep
And cry her not so average tears
And have her
