And if you think you are free of all guilt and suspicion.
I'm afraid, you will find, you are only in remission...
For I'll hunt you quietly, silent and slow.
And I'll wait till you slip, before I lay you low.
But when you're filled to the brim with fear; chasing the shadows away.
I'll appear inside your mirror--and I might come out to play...
...So tell me, do you fear me now?

Just give me a chance alright, I'll explain
To me, you're the girl that I notice everything about.
The way you laugh, the way you smile;
We got along great back then, even if we don't now.
And to be honest, I miss that...
You had the most lovely silky smooth hair
You'd give me the cutest anime girl smile
I wish I'd talked to you more about Manga,
Hell you got me started on the whole thing.
You were fantastic at drawing too
Man I was always jealous of that talent,
And I loved your drawings, like I once loved you.
I wish that you could have been a professional.
I would have bought your book every month y'know...
You encouraged me to write.
Back when my stories were shit,
Back when my poems were still baby's rhymes.
You taught me not to give in and I was grateful.
Now just let me finish alright?
I know that you won't speak to me.

But the reason that I'm writing this poem to nobod

Maybe you'd like to stay over? It'd be cool!
We'll watch a movie, play a few games.
C'mon you know how much I suck at monster hunter,
Be my wingman--er, lady tonight
And in the morning, let's go for a walk,
There's a huge park just a short distance away.
We could go on one of those nature trail things!
Hell yeah? Hell yeah!
And maybe, after you've had some time to think,
You'll see that things ain't quite as bad as you thought.
And if one day isn't enough to convince you,
Then I'm going to try again tomorrow.

I find it funny, at times,
In this reality, of mine.
When the heroes fall and demons rise.
In the fight for freedom, filled with lies.
But such is the nature of the templar divine.
With righteous chains, they'll keep us in line.
Afraid to face the true demon he fears.
He'll punishes the public, for their rightful jeers.

You Will Not Read ThisWhen a writer puts his soul and passion into his work.You Will Not Read This in Free Verse More Like This
It will go unnoticed, often because of its length.
It is a rather sad fact, but a truth nonetheless.
For the simple emotions conveyed in just a few words,
Often hold more sway with those who are emotionally swayed.
There is no depth of the heart, nor a single thought spared.
For the effort placed into a piece that forgoes the winning edge,
For a hint of true meaning.
You will not read this piece and I will not expect you to.
It will not be popular or famous, nor will it see the light of day.
For length is the bane of true poetry,
And that is why so many of my kin have already left.
Thank you however, for reading this;
For you at least took the time to see what I would consider 'truth'.
It is bitter indeed and intensely sad,
But for the you that respects this, I am eternally glad.

Such a simple word, spewed without thought.
"I wish you'd die, I wish you'd be killed."
But what if we actually gave meaning to those words?
Can you understand the emotion, the magnitude, the weight,
Of actually seeing the life of an individual depart?
Can you look them in the eyes, as they bleed into your hands;
Observing their final moments, as the light fades from their eyes?
Or are you simply a soft-hearted coward,
Sitting fat behind a computer, wishing death upon others?
To say that one is deserving of death,
Suggests that you are ready to kill.
And if indeed you are ready to kill,
Then you too must be prepared to die.

Your movements caused the corporal to stir. He rolled over so that he faced you, opening his eyes sleepily and gazing at you expressionlessly.
"Good morning" You mouthed silently, raising a hand to his face and brushing away jet black bangs. This caused a sliver of a smile to appear on Rivaille's lips, small but enough to make your heart flutter.
A hand snaked around your waist, bringing you closer to the corporal's bare chest, which you snuggled into with a hum of approval.
The corporal slung an arm over his eyes with a sigh. You couldn't help but admire the defined biceps and muscles laying underneath his skin.

Your eyes roamed constantly, unused to seeing this part of the city. You were awed and amused by the hustle bustle and energy of the town. It excited you.
"Oi!" Rivaille's voice snapped you back to reality. "Were you listening?"
You shook your head, trying to hide the gleeful smile on your lips. Rivaille gave you a momentary glance before turning forward again. "Stay close." he muttered, beginning to walk a faster pace. You nodded and struggled to keep up with him.
The minutes passed in silence between you two, save for the sounds of vendors and the town itself. Finally, however, your curiosity overtook you and you couldn't help but speak:

Your eyes widened in fear, you instinctively pressed yourself against the wall behind you, hands pressed against the wood.
You were too terrified to move, fear paralyzing your body and holding you in place.
A large hand loomed towards you. You closed your eyes instinctively, tensing and waiting for the hand to descend.

You looked up, looking down the street and nearly crying with relief.
"I asked: What the hell are you doing?" Rivaille repeated himself.
You took this chance to slip past the military police and escape to where Rivaille stood.

He rested one hand on the door frame of the cell, his eyes fixated on your form. You shrank under his gaze, withering away from the eyes that locked onto yours. He gave a small nod of his head, indicating for you to stand and follow him out of the cell. You glanced down at your hands again, a small, defeated sigh making its way past your lips.
"This is it." You couldn't help but think to yourself. "I am to be returned, and I never even got the chance to say goodbye..."
Nonetheless, you held your chin up defiantly and stood, avoiding the man's gaze as you brushed past him and out of the cell. You could swear he inhaled deeply as you passed, as if drawing in your scent. How strange of a military policeman, you thought.

He looked up as you looked around the corner, his expression still serious and blank.

With a tiered sigh, a tattooed arm worked carefully to apply false lashes right in the perfect spot on his beloved daughter's face. It wasn't strange anymore, he was used to this kind of stuff now. He was an expert at makeup, hair, costuming, and any skills needed to survive in the dance world. He didn't give two shits if someone thought what he was doing was strange or unmanly. Any person that dared question his masculinity would soon have to schedule facial reconstruction surgery after receiving a deadly blow to the face. This was his little girl, and this is what she loved. So for the sake of his beloved daughter, he'd pin up her hair and apply her lipstick. No one had to know about this little activity he did on the weekends anyways, it was just between his family and the people currently standing in the room. This was the one thing Hope begged her daddy to do with her, and Levi couldn't refuse the sweetness of his six-year-old daughter.

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life
Levi woke up just like he has for the past two weeks, cold. There was no warmth in his bed any longer, his body simply a frigid vessel now. Eyelids were forced to part, crust surrounding the edges from midnight tears. The golden rays of sunshine beaming down on him were cruel, as if to mock his current situation. The sunshine was nonexistent in his life now, the best his heart could hope for was a dreary overcast. He sighed, knowing he had to get up now and face reality. His dreams are long gone, and aching muscles remind him of this as he rises up from the comfort of his bed.

Levi woke up feeling quite different that morning in his little apartment, nervousness and anxiousness took over his thoughts. He took a little extra time to look nice today, even going as far as wearing a nice jacket in the hot ass weather. He needed to make a better impression on her today to try to redeem himself, he did steal her spark plug and make her cry after all. But he was determined to make up for it. He also grabbed his prized Carvin guitar before heading out the door, since he had a surprise up his sleeve for today's little date. Surprisingly, you two only lived a few short minutes away from each other. No wonder you both found that little coffee shop that he plays at.

Erwin never imagined back then that one person could so drastically change his life. One person would put all sorts of new colors into his life, another would take that all away. It was as if he had glimpsed at the bright gates of heaven, only to drop down and be stuck in a miserable hell. And the worst part was knowing that nothing would change, this was his infinite fate. He was alone, and he'd die just like that. Alone; with no one that cared for him. You, on the other hand, had a life of fulfillment, and because of that, he supposed that he was content with his fate. He did love you after all, and he vowed always to protect you.
When he met you at age 15, you were just a naïve child, unexposed to the darkness of being a soldier in the Survey Corps.

Almost dying really should have put things in perspective for you, but all you could think about was the events just hours before the sharp pain in your abdomen started.

Well, darling, let me tell you a story,
A story all too true.
A daughter who became a wife, a wife who became a mother.
A mother of three girls...
One just above the age of a toddler,
One at the age of twelve,
And one entering the life of a married adult.
Now, the youngest girl was watching television,
And the oldest at the neighbor's home.
The twelve year old daughter sat at a computer with her closest friend,
When something terrifying happened.
Her mother was in the kitchen, coughing.
The daughter, although unable to see her mother, only could imagine the situation.
The mother walked calmly past the daughter with tears rushing down her face,
And up the stairs she went,
Into her bedroom...
Locking the door behind her.
The daughter, hearing the door lock, didn't bother to check on her mother.
She decided to expect and hope for the best.
Five, maybe ten minutes passed, the daughter still sitting at the computer,

When you called him into the living room, Levi had no idea just what he was in for. Maybe if he did he would’ve been more prepared for what you would say to him, not that he’d ever find out now.
You sat on the couch, your hands in your lap as you twiddled your thumbs and nervously shifted in your spot. Levi simply waited for you to finally work up the backbone to say whatever it was you were about to say. If he were being completely honest, though, your silence was bugging the ever-living shit out of him.
“Umm… So, Levi…” you mumbled, not even looking him in the face. “Uh, so… there’s something that you should probably know.”
“Yeah, I kinda figured. What is it,” he more so demanded than asked.
You took a deep breath and closed your eyes tight. “I’m pregnant!” you blurted out.
His face was void from any expression, save his slightly-widened eyes, as he tried to comprehend those two words. You

“Tch, fuck, can you get any rougher? You’re going to re-open my damn wounds.”
“Sorry,” you spoke softly. “How’d you even get so many injuries, anyway?”
It had been a recurring event that Levi would get himself hurt in a fight or something or other and you, being the kind and caring soul you are, would be left treating him in the aftermath. Living in the underground was a tough life for anyone unfortunate enough to be stuck there, but Levi had been grateful he at least had you with him.

Levi loved hugs.
You wouldn’t be able to tell that just by looking at him, or talking to him, or even knowing him. He’s very isolated. But it’s true, he loved hugs. He’s a hugger.
He especially loved hugging you.
You were far taller than he was, around four or five inches taller, you weren’t entirely sure, but you’d been dating a long while. People would always stare at the two of you as if you were some kind of freak pairing, and you’d think that you were. Being the taller person in the relationship you had made you feel awkward, especially considering he was a lot stronger than you.
One time you injured your leg and he had to pick you up bridal style to escort you to safety. It looked weird, to say in the least. You huddled yourself in as much as you could to make it look less like Levi was lugging around a Titan – albeit an attractive one – but a Titan nonetheless.

At first, life with the Legion was tentative and hopeful. You had always been shrouded with an eerie darkness, and never before had you seen past it, but these people… the scouts, they were willing to shoulder the burdens and the terrors of hunting Titans so that maybe one day their people could be free. You saw them as the light in an otherwise dark time.
You’d often visit the infirmary to get treatment for your wounds that were yet to heal. The scouts had enough funding to give you the care you required for your extremely damaged health. Your body barely saw food as something beneficial anymore, so eating was tough for you – but with time and effort, your body was on its way to becoming the healthy one you never had.
Levi would overlook everything you did and make sure you were eating or sleeping properly, you were in too fragile a state to have your body deteriorate any more than it already had.

Your arms were aching and your fingers bled from the harsh labour they had been forced to endure. You couldn’t remember how many hours had gone by. The clouds had long since blanketed the skies with grey; it was difficult to determine the time. You had no strength left in your body; you had been fighting a long while.
So what was it that carried you? What was it that kept you going, even though your body had wished for the release of eternal rest?
It was Levi. It was your need to find him. Among the broken bodies and blood-stained grass, you had to know he was okay.

Your entire life was a blur of confusion and darkness. You didn’t know what you were, what you could see – but somehow, you saw everything and nothing at the same time.
The sight of a normal human was robbed from you before it could’ve been gifted. Instead of just seeing the world around you, all you ever saw was the dismay, the turmoil, the pain that the future would bring upon others. Every face you’d look at was connected to a story they likely wouldn’t want to hear.

They haunted him, seeing their blood stained faces calling and crying for him to save them in their final moments left him more damaged than he’d ever reveal.
He’d toss and turn, desperately searching for comfort in his sheets, wishing deeply that maybe tonight would be the night that the gods would bless him with a blank mind as he slept. But no, the load that weighed down the shoulders of Humanity’s Strongest Soldier was too heavy for even him to lift.
Beads of sweat gathered at his brow as he heard the blood curdling screams of the scouts dying around him, of all the people he couldn’t save because he was too weak.
God, he was weak.
But in the distance of the battlefield he heard a voice calling out to him, beckoning him to leave the bloody fight.

cannot be explained so simply...
I loathe the unsterilized ink
which continually poisons my veins
and pumps from an all too emotional heart
yet when this ink is set free
breathed from my syringe of a quill
I'm assailed by such a breathtaking sense
of relief and release that I forget
and become intoxicated on my own vile.
I abhor my blank eyes
which so incoherently delude me
as to what is real
that I am faced continually
with the realization that reality
will never be enough for me
and yet these blank eyes are the same
on which I paint such beautiful fantasies
and experiences which I faithfully adore.
I detest the imagination
which hosts menial plays with
unwritten roles and spitfire lines
and asks me to fill the holes
Your Poetry SucksYes, roses are redYour Poetry Sucks in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And violets are blue
But you have to understand
Who said they had to,
Its about imagination
Emotion and orignality
Not the reiteration
Of dead men's practicality
They are your sentence
To a world that has to listen
As you create the difference
Whether it be
With angst poem against love
Or how you set your heart free
To fly like a dove,
For these words
Whether or not they be true
Their beauty and ideals
Will be used to define you,
Hope ,in fact, has feathers
And like a caged bird it sings
But these words will only be tethers
That strip you of your wings,
Those are their words
Meant for their time
And meant for their herds,
But this your time
Meant for your words
And whether they be meaningful, stupid
Or completely absurd
I'm sure they'll be amazing.
I Want To Live In A World Without GodI want to live in a world without GodI Want To Live In A World Without God in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Without the dream of Heaven
Or simple fear of Hell,
Without the love of one
Who would be so willing
To destroy under the pretense
Of a higher meaning,
Oppresively stopping me
From even simply lying
Even if its to myself,
To my own heart and mind
Or loving someone completely
Since he'll rip them away from me
To appease his own jealousy
Without the punishment of death
A testament to the cruelty
Of this so called Saviour
Who would allow us to live
To fight our battles
In a bitter world of his own design
While leaving us with
The complete certainity
That the war has already been lost .
Without the cruelty of pain
That builds with the progression of life
Mounts after every year
Attacks after every second.
I instead want to live in a world
Molded within my own selfishness
One without children sitting on the streets
With arms so thin
They aren't be able pick up
The bread you try to hand to them.
my brother's room holds both heaven and hellHe envelops himselfmy brother's room holds both heaven and hell in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
in covers and darkness
lest he see the nightmares
lest he see the nightmares
He tells me
in pained whisper
of the hate
discarded angels sing
from his walls
how god damns
the souls of those
so irreparably broken as him.
I try fashion my love
into a weapon that could
smite even those which god
could only nail to his walls
but my weapon is wasted
For these enemies are ones
I'll never see.
He tells me
in weakened screams
of the love
whisper from darkened corners
with false faces and intentions
how only they can protect him
how he must die
so he can be free of this burden
And though I use my love to scream
deafening hope to cloud such
I know he
We see different starsWe see different starsWe see different stars in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
While yours shine throughout
the darkness of your night,
light the way into your sky,
and hold your wishes til
they finally come true,
mine reflect in the murky filth
from which they can be seen
acting as disgusting mirrors
into a world which cannot be mine
