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.

DesperationI wonder how many days you've spent feeling lost.Desperation in Free Verse More Like This
Thinking that you're going somewhere.
Never actually getting anywhere.
You look at the same four walls over and over again.
You can paint them in different colours,
But you know they're still the same.
And you convince yourself that you're making progress,
Nothing's changed, but you're making progress.
Things are getting worse, but you're making progress.
And then you wake up and realise,
That shit has hit the fan...
Suddenly you're forced to do the things you couldn't,
The kind of things that you were never comfortable with.
And you find out you can do them.
You find out that the only reason you couldn't,
Was because you were afraid to try.
It's hard - trying to take that first step.
It's hard - trying to convince yourself to take that chance.

The moon tonight is brilliant, for it casts an eerie-looking shadow upon the moss and the stone. At times I find myself wondering, is that me that I see? Or is it merely another side of me, one that hides amongst the shade?
Ugh, that horrid moaning! That evil rattling, rasping noise! It's driving itself into my skull again, like an annoying repetition that I can't seem to quiet. It screeches at times, like nails upon a chalkboard. It buries itself deep into the recesses of my mind and fills the hole with rot! A fetid fungus spitting serpentine venom from the eyes of a fox!
What? What are you saying? What do you mean! Tell me god damn it!
Ha...Ha...I can hear myself breathing; barely through the fog. The sound is far away, like the deeps of a bog. I can't believe that I'm rhyming, what the hell
A Life in FlamesTHE ELVEN BOY cowered beneath the bed, as the hulking beast-like creature devoured what remained of his mother. Through his watery blue eyes, tear-stained and red, he watched as the creature slurped the muscles from her bones. It was a terrible sight for the boy to behold, as the beast was unlike any other that he had ever seen. Its neck hung loose, as though broken badly and its face, though humanoid in appearance, was elongated like that of a canine.A Life in Flames in Short Stories More Like This

All of it, had been in vain.

Graduation DayGraduation Day:Graduation Day in Free Verse More Like This
They told us we would be alright...
We had fought with honour and won our titles.
We had overcome trials together -
Watching dozens of our siblings fall in the line of duty.
For this they had promised us, a wondrous welcome;
A bountiful world of adventure, with a myriad of paths.
All this, they said, awaited us in the stone cities.
Large metropolises, where the working folk resided...
There were hundreds of us, who made that journey.
Walking miles across the scorching desert,
Clinging to a hope of the fortunes beyond.
Yet what awaited us was not a promised land -
Nor was it a life based on the merit we had earned...
Instead we found ourselves quarantined,
Pitching tents of inexperience-
Huddling together for comfort and warmth;
As the great gates of employment stood eerily silent.

You two were alone in her office, but the door was open,so anyone who happened to be wandering by could listen in on your conversation.

All three nights you’d failed in doing so. Miraculously though you woke up in your bed each following morning.

As you reached the top of the stairs you felt an angry yank on your arm, eliciting a small whimper upon your part. Rivaille looked back at you for a moment, and you swore that his face took on a slight expression of remorse. But you couldn't be sure, because suddenly you were being pulled forward.
Your footsteps hit the old wooden floorboards harshly, two pairs of footsteps echoing down the hallway irregularly.
At last you reached the door that led to the apartment.
Rivaille practically threw the door open, making you flinch. The fury in this man scared you, in all honesty. Rivaille glanced back at you, eyes half lidded, brow furrowed in frustration.
He held the door open for you, motioning you inside with a nod of his head.

This had been bothering you all damn day, while everything about that man was unknown, there was still something so strangely tangible about him, almost as if you both had met before. That was unlikely though, surely you'd notice a stranger as good looking as him. He recognized you for the first time that day, and there was something in his gaze, something similar to that when you see someone you haven't for many years.
After watching some pointless TV and enjoying your wine, clothes were lazily tossed about as you crawled into bed, still distracted by these thoughts. This was your favorite time of the day though, the time when you would play

Levi's heart skipped a beat when he first saw you. You were such a beautiful cadet, young and strong. (Hair color) locks, (eye color) eyes, a body that could make any man stare at you for days. You were so enticing to him. Sure, he had seen and dated many beautiful women throughout his many years, but Levi felt as if having you would make everything better. All of the fantasies in his head could be brought to life by you. Happiness, peace of mind, restful nights, comfort, and love. He was sure of it, you could fulfill it all. You approached him, an angelic smile on you face.

Your friendship had grown into something more as of recently, something you couldn't be happier about. He liked you like this too, he often felt lonely in the confinement of his office. Hearing your sweet giggles was the perfect remedy to help him forget his woes. Although there was no physical interaction during the day, he would sometimes show you soft gazes or go easy on your mistakes.

Much to his surprise, Levi really enjoyed being a father. At first he thought he would detest the smelly diapers, crying, and cheesy kids shows, but even thought none of those things were great, the joy he found in raising a child triumphed over all the negative aspects. The night before you gave birth, you and Levi had finally decided on a name for your son together. Justis, is the name you both fell in love with and decided on. Justis, even at the young age, was awfully fond of Levi. They were like two peas in a pod, and you thought that couldn't be any cuter. The famous Levi, known for getting into fist fights and having unsightly images tattooed on his body, wasn't a man to be swayed easily. His son though, was a whole different story.

Levi perked his ears as he heard the front door being opened. He was tiered of cleaning the house alone, and was ready for (first)'s company. She didn't say a word, no 'Hi Levi' or 'Hey I'm home.' She simply put her keys on the counter, an indifferent look plastered on her face. This was defiantly off from (first)'s typical upbeat personality.

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.

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.

One minute he was commanding his Scouting Legion in a battle with the Titans, and the next he was lost in the woods, unable to see anything past the vast foliage that would indicate where his comrades were. He heaved a sigh, slicking his blond tresses back as he continued on the lonely road. The only road that he has ever known. It was like a boulevard of broken dreams.
What seemed like hours – but was likely only a few minutes – had passed, and Erwin saw what looked like a small hut built into a gargantuan tree stump in the distance, surrounded by a swamp.

The idea that something so beautiful and full of life could be tainted with such a filthy, rotten, incurable disease just unnerved him.

The rain pattered against the window. Slowly, you raised a hand and traced your fingertips on the frigid glass, feeling the delicate batters from every droplet. You watched as the sprinkles melded together and formed one large teardrop. Your eyes followed the wet trail it made as it reflected the muted light and its bluish hue. Slowly, it traveled down the pane until it landed in a small puddle. 1. 2. 3. 4. You counted each ripple until they overlapped into a blur. With a melancholy sigh, you shifted in your chair and let your hand fall in your lap.
A few feet away from your seat, a piano rested in a small circle of dim light, the top board and music rack mirroring the frames of the window. The rest of the large room being dark, Levi concealed himself in the shadows as his long, slender fingers weaved across the piano. His back slightly hunched, his face though stoic secreting a hint of sorrow, each key was pressed with deliberation. It was your favorite piece, so every note mattered.

You were okay. You just needed to stay calm and focused. All you were doing was studying for a test, right? With a deep inhale, you returned to your science book, rapping you pen against the page and bouncing your foot against the railing of your desk. Every ten seconds, you changed your seat position and rubbed your hair before you finally returned to the black inscriptions on the page. You had been studying for a good three hours now, surprisingly retaining a good bit of information. Once you were finished, you could get to work, reorganizing your room.
Damn, you were such a slob during finals week, and it drove your fiance, Levi, absolutely batshit crazy. But, you always kept your doors shut, preventing him from seeing your hellhole of a room. Oh, the fights you guys could initiate over this. Being the neat freak he was, the thought of simply one room being in the slightest mess bothered him to no end.
But, it wasn’t that you meant to: you were just so easily distractible. In

Swallowing a hard lump forming in your throat, you glared intently at the arched back covered in the plain, white t-shirt. The endless set of screens played the same videotapes repeatedly, as if it’d never end. The voices from the speakers only came out as long drones to you. You watched as that madman of a genius packed his mouth with sweet after sweet, gargling it down with sugary coffee, then dangling another over his mouth before dropping it in.
You clenched your fists, and your stomach twisted into a knot: how could he do this to you? What the hell was he thinking? Could he not have done this another way? Did he even care?
Obviously not: 23 days. 23 days, L Lawliet will peacefully die.
Written by his own hand.
Throughout this entire case, you attempted to calcify your heart, not allow that worthless organ form any kind of attachment to anyone knowing well any of them could be killed. While you appreciated and enjoyed everyone’s company, you remained distant. You

COLLEGE. What more was there to say? Anyone asking you the question “how’s life” new exactly what you meant just with that one, dreaded word: college. You hated it, yet you were obligated to attend to proceed onward with your life. It made you want to tear out every hair follicle, yet you needed to go for your desired career. You were forced into taking classes you despised and enjoyed, but both overloaded you with assignments and projects that it didn’t matter. Sometimes, it felt like you were merely studying to pass an exam rather than actually learn something. It transformed you from a chipper student to a loathsome hermit, grouchy and disgusted with everything, seeking comfort in only coffee and any other delicious foods that brought you instant joy before it immediately depleted upon finishing it.
This was your life now. No fun, no social interactions and a constant crick in your neck.
It was a dark and stormy night when you spent another late night hanging

Life; that was all you wanted. To have life breathed into you, with a little heart that beat and carried warm blood throughout your body, with skin soft and desirable that could be cut, broken and scarred, with lungs that filled and stretched with every breath, revitalizing the rest of your body with that life giving air.
Perhaps then, your master would want you.
Every night, you watched him bring new victims, all pretty and delicate, into his private corridors. From the finely decorated shelf on which you sat with other fragile and priceless items, you observed as he enticed them into his bed, intoxicated them with his words and finally drank away the last bit of blood that brought them life. Not once did he glance in your direction as he licked away the ruby fluid tinting his lips, return to his cold, stoic self and obsessively cleaned his room, setting it back in order once again.
Then, he strolled over to your shelf. Taking you carefully in his hands, he twisted the key at the nape

Your final note echoed across the stadium, surely waking the depths of Hell itself. A heavy quietness hung as your voice trembled the fragile sound waves before fading. A sudden silence, and the crowd exploded into mad cheers for your performance. Despite the ringing in your ears, you reveled in the applause, letting the incoherent, thundering approval carry you away. Closing your eyes and exhaling deeply, you bowed humbly with your faithful band members behind you.
Oh, if only you could feel this good every night...
You returned to the solitude of your changing room, a small towel draped over your shoulder. After unbuttoning a few claps on your blouse, you sat in front of your vanity and pilled back your sweaty hair. After the short high you received from the screams of the ecstatic audience, your emotions took a plunge for the worst. A knot twisted into your stomach, and your heart beat cold blood into your veins. In the reflection of your mirror, a pair of ghostly eyes observe

“Actors are agents of change. A film, a piece of theater, a piece of music, or a book can make a difference. It can change the world.” These words were imprinted on a little mirror you kept in your bag. You mother gave it to you when you moved away to New York in pursuit of your acting career. Naturally, the road started rough and seemingly hopeless; often working extra hours at the cafe, accepting insignificant roles in movies, filming stupid, over the top commercials. You even reduced yourself to the lowest, shameless act of sleeping with a few directors to obtain roles you really wanted. So desperate you were to achieve your dream that morals and rules didn’t even apply to you anymore.
Alas, life is cruel, and in some cases even hard work and sacrificing your all isn’t enough.
