I Don't Mean To Be Rude...But I am getting quite sick of your attitude.I Don't Mean To Be Rude... in Free Verse More Like This
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?

The Righteous Are LiarsThe Righteous Are Liars:The Righteous Are Liars in Free Verse More Like This
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.
And thus ends the "hero's" tale...

Just give me a chance alright, I'll explain
To me, you're the girl that I notice everything about.

We got along great back then, even if we don't now.

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 poems were still baby's rhymes.
You taught me not to give in and I was grateful.

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

The Flower of EvilThe Flower of Evil:The Flower of Evil in Free Verse More Like This
Evil is but a blooming flower,
It is born from a humble seed
And grows to corrupt a forest.
To watch its infection spread;
To be a part of its existence...
I can think of no better prospect,
Indeed one might baulk at the idea,
Of seeing millions suffer.
To watch worlds scream and writhe;
To see them suffer and die, with living eyes...
Yet there is a mysterious beauty in such devastation,
Fear that shakes me to my very core;
Is transfigured into a twisted pleasure:
As I am frightened, so too am I aroused.
I am addicted to the ephemeral sensation;
To the borderline between rapture and rupture.
To see my own blood soaking from splitting wounds;
Leaves me maddened amongst these blooming flowers

Love Beyond the WindowWhen I was young, I believed in fairy tales.Love Beyond the Window in Free Verse More Like This
I believed that if your heart willed it,
That love could overcome anything.
That one day, two lovers could always be together.
But those were simple lies I think...
After all, how does one reach across a window;
Reach across a screen...
To hold someone on the other side,
Before they slip through your fingers.
Like a lonely dance between air and water,
I can only stand on the surface of the lake,
And see her smiling on the other side.
Sometimes, I would draw pictures on the surface;
These thin useless arms of mine scrawling tiny doodles,
And she would smile and reply to each one:
Including a heart, for 'I love you'...
And each time I would feel,
As though I could soar through any distance,
As though I could run a hundred miles.
If only so I could see you;
If only because I missed you...
But enough I say...
Enough of this life

And I wonder if I'll be able to fly tonight...
The caress of the wind, so gentle upon my skin.
One step, one leap and I'd dip myself into the eye of the storm.
But just before my courage sends me;
Just before I take the final plunge.
I find myself looking back, at the world I'd leave behind...
Stacks of paper and a pot of ink,
Reams of stories too precious to burn.
Ideas and fears both rolled into one;
And pages of poetry left undone...
It always leaves me smiling...
For these were the treasures so close to my heart.
They are the wealth of my mind; my soul, my art.
And I could never ever leave them be,
Where another might burn them, without thinking of me...

That even though there are terrible things occurring,

This is true.
But it is also entirely false.
We fear things like the dark, scary movies, spiders,
Just to name a few petty fears.
But what I have come to realize
Through my apathetic, calculating eyes,
Is that our fears should be placed on ourselves.
What we do to each other is horrific;
We kill; many times not for survival or self defense.
Our instinct for blood shed a terrible blight we don't bother to keep in check.
We steal; possessions, hearts, the feelings of being safe.
Our thefts ranging from petty, to immoral and devastating.
We rape; physically the damage is terrible, stealing a person's sense of self.
The emotional damage... Is so much worse, it can lead to an early demise.

This desire to claim what is mine,
And burn down all that threatens me.

My inner animal bursting forth.

Or being able to do tangible actions.

Not sure what to do.

To find an inner calm,

Is what marks strength and peace.

The one who truly loved me,
And his love for me never changed.

It was the same woman. Wasn't it? The resemblance between them, their eye color, their hair, every groove and dip of their body... was the same. The woman that he had rarely seen in conciseness, that held his every thought. He always tried to avoid her; out of fear of learning the truth.

In the end, I went along with Samuel's plan, since I didn't want to push him too much, and I really wanted to see what he had planned. The blazing sun pounded on us with full force, but the cloaks we wore were designed to lock moisture in and keep the heat out, so it felt like a light draft. The town was busy as ever, with shops opened on both side of the dusty road, selling food, clothes and trinkets found in the desert. The huts were all made of wood and straw transported from other counties, since trees couldn't grow out here. The houses were all a tan color made of harden sand like ours, all decorated with shiny and colorful objects. Everyone wore cloaks to prevent sand from getting in their hands, and some went father and designed masks for sandstorms.

But staring at the dirt on the ground made me feel gloomy inside, so I decided to sit down, burying my head in my knees. I looked back at my tails, and noticed a number of twigs and leaves buried in my fur, and sighed again. It was weeks, months maybe, since I had a decent bath or shower. Maybe, if I get this new job, I'll be able to get a decent shower. That would be the day, I though. Finally the ground felt welcoming, and I laid my had down in the dirt, and closed my eyes, drifting into a deep slumber. I prayed for a brighter day, and just as I was able to truly slumber, I heard a noise; the sound of someone walking near the bridge. The sound was faint, and I didn't bother opening my eyes to check. But the next thing I heard was rocks rolling and bouncing off each other, then the sound of heavy breathing, like someone who was scared was right next to me. Quick

From the look of the mud crusted on their foreheads, blood smeared on their necks and faces, the bandages wrapped around various limbs and the pathetic moans of the crippled soldiers from the carts, they knew this expedition failed miserably. They doubted the mere existence of the Scouting Legion altogether. What was the point of sending their own out their own when less than half returned with little to nothing to show for it?

Leon looked back at his siblings, Faith and Matthias, their eyes wide with fear. Choking back a sob, he approached them and pulled them close.
“Don’t panic,” he mumbled, voice shaking. “We have to get out alive.”
Faith clutched his shoulder. “But, what if-”
“No, shut the hell up,” he gripped her hair, staring into her pale, swollen eyes. “We can, and we will.”
Matthias muffled his sobs into his big brother’s ch

“Matthias, get off the fucking table NOW.”
“But, Daddy! Look! I’m a Titan!”
Leon and Faith circled the area, kitchen utensils in hand, preying on the monster. Undaunted by their father’s angry words, they continued these motions, as their youngest brother covered his entire being with his green blanket, emitting over the top roars. Every now and then, one of the little Scouts attacks with a wooden spoon with an angry shout.
Day five, and Levi was still going solo with these rascals. You were still in the medical center, unconscious. Though this last expedition could be identified as a success in the loosest sense of the word, casualties were still faced. As you guided your own Squad, he didn’t witness what happened, but you came back scratched up, a fractured arm and a blow to your head knocking you completely unconscious. Levi’s stomach turned to rot the longer he watched your sleeping face that night. He knew you were alive. He felt the

With an aggravated growl, you burrowed your leg into the heavy bag with everything you had. The slam sent vibrations of pain through your shin but the strike sent it ramming into the wall with a thud. You were the only one left in the studio, so you could yell, growl, make as much noise as you so chose. As it swung back at you, you reeled back your leg, performing the same round kick into your target. Again, sharp pain jolted through the used limb but the rush you felt overrode any discomfort. Instead, you continued on with a series of punches and strikes with your palm. The cool adrenaline filled you like fuel, allowing to sending more hits with the greatest of force. The more contact you made, the harder effect it left on your tender skin. But, you swallowed hard and pushed.
One last punch, you thought. Winding back, directing all your attention to the indention in the bag, you fired. Unfortunate

Quieter than a mouse, Faith peered through the bushes, watching her father, Levi, trudge his way to Recon’s Headquarters. You specifically told her to remain at home, since her father had quite a bit of paperwork to catch up on. (Naturally, you knew this since he’d been complaining about it every night.) But, she couldn’t resist. She wanted-no, she needed time with her Daddy. The boys had been dragging him inside and forcing him into roughhousing and wrestling. She couldn’t ignore her own tomboyish tendencies. She loved getting dirty, fighting and bruising as much as her brothers did. On certain days though, she enjoyed her quiet hobbies like watching the clouds, drawing pictures, reading or daydreaming. She spent all this time with her Mommy, so she wanted Daddy now.
At every crackle of a leaf or snapping of a stick, Levi glanced over his shoulder. Though he had not even seen the filth of the underground in years, little motions like this became reflexive. Back

In times of war, a soldier possess no time to grieve over his fallen comrades. In the heat of battle, a warrior cannot afford to stop and grieve over the lost and departed. It is not until the quiet of sleep or the peace earned from a long struggle do the memories weigh his tired mind and wrestle with his bruised emotions.
2:30 AM, and [Name] engaged in such a battle. She counted the grooves in the stone ceiling. She listened to the sorrowful moan of the autumn wind rustling the bare trees. The tired rays of the pale moon glowed behind dark, billowing clouds. She figured a storm was brewing. She perceived the calm breaths of the slumbering soldiers in the darkness. Despite the serene setting, every time she closed her heavy eyelids, her mind reeled through memories of her childhood, those grueling days of living in poverty, rejected by society. She remembered her first encounter with the Titans, those first few weeks of agonizing training in which her body nearly broke from the strain.

Humming a tune that had been stuck in your head for the majority of the day, you peeled the last of the potatoes and tossed them in the boiling pot.
“Alright!” you crossed your arms, satisfied with your work. “Once those are finished, dinner will be ready!”
Matthias placed the final plate at the end of the table. “Table’s ready!”
The teenager brushed off his hands, returning to home base in the kitchen. “Anything else I can help with?”
“Nope, that should be could for now,” you wrapped your arms around his waist. “Thanks, love!”
He chuckled and accepted your terms of affection. Out of your entire family, your youngest, your baby, towered over everyone at six feet. Leon and Faith only beat their father by one inch. You knew your family concealed some tall genes: you just never expected Matthias to win the lottery on that one.
“Alright, go get your brother,” you told

Underneath the veil of your curtains, you watched the billowing clouds, their hues of grey and black, conceal the solemn ascent of the sun. A sonorous rumble vibrated over the plains, signaling the oncoming storm. The wind quietly disturbed the trees, bending them gently, whisking crumbled leaves from trembling twigs. Once again, you concealed your home from the outside world behind your velvety drapes. Every tiny movement triggered a ghastly ache through your exhausted muscles, consequences of the expedition the day before. But, as you drew closer to the sofa resting at the middle of the room, you took notice of your daughter, Faith and youngest son, Matthias, sprawled over the cushions, faces relaxed, breathing steady. At the front of the fireplace, your eldest, Leon relaxed in his father’s favorite rocking chair, an unknown momentum still pushing it to and fro. Deep purple bruises embedded into each of
