To Be HumanI'm staring down glass,To Be Human in Free Verse More Like This
Only to find,
A horrible creature,
I can't bring to mind.
I'm sitting in hallways,
Touching my face.
I used to love something;
Was it this place?
I'm dreaming of someone;
I can't grasp his name.
I must have forgotten,
While writhing for fame.
At night I am breathing;
But am I alive?
The times I'm alone,
I question my drive.
Could I be a person?
I really don't know.
The things you desire,
I simply can't show.
Waiting for the StormWaiting for a tidal wave,Waiting for the Storm in Free Verse More Like This
Sitting by the sea,
I won't hear you screaming,
When water swallows me.
I still taste your kindness,
And I still feel your wrath,
But all will be forgotten,
Beneath nature's bath.
Can you smell the sea foam,
Rising through the air?
These gentle jaws of water,
Will silence our despair.
I hold my arms beside me,
As the liquid takes its toll,
And as my ember softens,
The ocean takes me whole.

Ode to MoonlightSilver sun, I pray this night,Ode to Moonlight in Free Verse More Like This
To bask within your tranquil light.
Beckon down your veins of silk,
To feed my shell your warming milk.
The sky is black- my body dead,
But you can fix my empty head.
Pull my weary tears away,
Caress my soul-lead me astray.
Your astral eyes gaze down in awe,
Give your kiss to free my jaw.
Slay all the demons who claw my spine,
Truly your beauty is something divine.
Silver sun, don't leave me again,
A creature is rising- escaping its pen.
Stall the wretched orb of fire,
That calls to wake the cruel and dire.
Hold me in your vibrant arms,
Cradled deep within your charms.
Do not let day return me to strife,
For without you I lack the meaning for life,
And I fear at the hand which grabs for the knife.
FriendshipI asked them what was wrong,Friendship in Free Verse More Like This
They didn’t say a thing.
I took to my chest a metal prong;
I made myself a ring.
I slavered like a creature;
I purged myself of me.
I needed placement in the feature;
I didn’t care for being free.
I took my flesh and made it stone;
I flushed away my being.
I carved until I reached the bone;
I had to be worth seeing.
An empty husk returned to home;
The bag of skin came back to town.
Was this the place he used to roam?
His head said smile- his heart said drown.
The monster went to make amends;
To not be so alone.
The monster went to win his friends;
He couldn't live unknown.
He asked them if they’d take him in;
They didn’t say a thing.
The color faded from his skin;
They didn’t say a thing.
The creature walked so far away,
Their nothings left to sing.
He crawled so far from home that day,
And never said a thing.
Calling GodI stand in the moonlight,Calling God in Free Verse More Like This
Screaming at the wind,
Crying for an answer,
As to why I’ve sinned.
But never comes an echo,
Never comes a breeze,
There is only silence,
And whispers amongst trees.
And so I journey deeper,
Deeper in my skin,
And look for love in velvet,
As knives become my kin.
Needles sate my hunger,
As they rip and prod,
I find that when I’m bleeding,
Is when I’m close to God.
That is when I whisper,
Without tears to cry,
That is when I ask Him,
“Please just let me die.”
But never comes an echo,
Never comes a breeze,
There is only silence,
And a boy’s disease.
Suburban DecayShe watched so very closely as the midnight skipped away-Suburban Decay in Free Verse More Like This
She wondered as it wandered: "will I live to see the day?"
But the twilight gave no answer, nor guidance from above-
For the stars were sworn to secrecy and did not know of love.
Early the next morning, while the air still wrestled dew,
She found a very startling thing: her legs were far from new.
Whispers from the hallway called, and so she wiped her tears,
She wore a smile tight as iron- lest they see her fears.
If the poor see but two colors: silver and then black,
Then she'd just have to make her own, while throwing on her slacks.
The sun spent all day daunting, and the shadows; they did crawl,
The demons, they were waiting for the moment that she'd fall.
Before she reached the bus stop, she sipped a few more lies,
All the while fighting tears, who threatened her disguise.
Looking out the window, she saw lovers on the street,
And sickly in herself she found she knew they'd meet defeat.
Home once more, she locked the door a

Heaven please help me escape from this place.
Hideous ogre that looks to the sun,
Suck at my soul until I have none.
Hide behind stone- you've gotten this far,
But kid yourself not- you know what you are.

She's through coming undone

Drown in your own blood,
And see the truth shine with the intensity of the night star

And I came out the stronger man in the end.

Staring back at her.
Sure that the mirror tells the truth
A girl, pudgy and small.
When in reality, she is not ugly at all.
She starves her innerworkings,
Of food and of factuality.
The girl doesn't feel beautiful,
But to me the notion is uncanny.
A walking skeleton, she has now become,
The work of lies twisted and strung
Over her heart; the net rips precious veins.
I've told her to stop the nonsense, these games!
But the girl is bound by habit,
And caged in by her deceived mind.
She cannot rest until her carcass has reached the grave.
The girl doesn't want to be remembered this way,
Though inside, she knows,
Its too late.

Funnily enough, I didn't feel much of anything at the time. I guess they tend to play it up in the movies. They always show that people remain angry, that people have feelings of wanting to do something or to accomplish something. But once you're gone, you don't actually feel much of that.
Instead, I remember being calm. I was very calm after that final moment. I would poke my head every now and again, thinking that the skin would feel raw, but other than that; I was alright. I

It was difficult trying to stay with you. When all he did was push you away. He didn't want to get close to you. That's exactly how he lost his only friends. And how was he supposed to live with himself if you disappeared? Of course he wanted to be with you, have you by his side day and night, but it was something his mind told him not to do.
Although his heart screamed for him to pull you closer every time he shoved away.
I always show her nothing but the finest
And all she shows me
Is where the exit sign is
So baby if you fall for me
Don't ask for mercy please
I won't crash again
Though, when he did act affectionate towards you, you'd be the one to push away. You'd say he wasn't doing it out of real love, that he just felt bad. That he didn't really care, he just didn't want to hurt you.

Whispering thoughts into my mind
Making every idea seem possible and kind
I am tired but I can't sleep
I am hungry but I can't eat
I thirst but I can't drink
I have infinite ideas but I can't think
I want to scream but I can't speak
And for this the voice tells me I am weak
I plunder through this darkness with a single light to guide me
As this loud voice echoes on inside me
The keys tap under my fingers as I run from the noise
As the voice marches on with its clever ploys
Bouncing and rattling inside my head
I wonder when my eyelids will be dead
For I know that this can not last forever
Yet this connection I feel no need to sever
The voice tells me things in the night
Things that start ideas that are simply too bright
For the darkness I have wrapped around myself
I fear no longer for my health

He had a bright orange coat and mane that seemed to flicker in the sun. Now in this time, the sun was as important as a vegan thinks they are, meaning that lots of people would always try to lure the pony in with young maidens in peril. But this pony lived to be free, as free as America. One day, the pony came across one such maiden in the woods with two shattered kneecaps; he decided that just this once, he would help this girl because of her bubblegum pink hair. But what he didn’t know is that the girl had a secret plot—she needed the flaming pony to impress a boy.

Faori sat at the table with his hands on his head. He stared at the map of the Furisaki mansion. He had a good plan to get into the mansion without getting caught. For him, that part was easiest. But now came the hardest part: getting out and not getting caught. The Furisaki family valued their treasure very much so more than likely they'll have guards everywhere. If so, an alarm would soon be raised once guards noticed the treasure was missing. Faori tapped his right foot on the floor repeatedly as he tried to think of how to avoid the guards.

Just as night set in, the city came into view. They would wait until around eleven or midnight before going to the Furisaki home. The masters of the house went to bed around that time. Faori led the group into the city. Vanyr was the first of all of them to spot Sosu Furisaki, the head of the Furisaki family, in town. He was hard to miss. His white cat ears on the top of his head and his black tail were unique in this town. Sosu was walking toward his house with some maids who were carrying a box.

'Did you know? I was the one sending all these letters. I love you.'
'I love you, though you hurt me a thousand times...'
'I am so happy about having you by my side. Oh I love you so dearly.'
'He died, though... I couldn't even say: 'I love you!' One last time...'
A word, a situation can be so full of feelings. But even without any explanation you can feel all kinds of feelings to the words: I love you.
And this is sometimes true for every word.
Does this make us lie? We tend to say we are better than animals for having a complex way of communication. But is it al

Then everyone will pet my head
I will be tiny, will be small
I'll be your fluffy, furry ball
Let me be a little cat
Then everyone will pet my head
I will purr all day and all night
And I would never have to fight
Let me be a little cat
And everyone will pet my head
I will be cute and will be sweet
And everyone would love me deep
Let me be your furry ball
I don't want to feel pain at all
I want my milk I want my food
I wanna stay in a good mood
When I would be a little pet
My life would end soon, but not yet
I'll be so innocent and smart
You'll love me then with all your heart
You'll love me then you'll love me now
But your love would never end at all
If I would be a tiny scar
Who crosses the path of this car
I wanna be the cat
Who will be bleeding wet
Out of her head
Which you've always pet
My life would end so soon
And you love would be a boon
To my heart
It would be short
But it'll be true

You think you're always out of sight
You think your weak and you can't stop
To write such poems
You say you don't want anymore
you don't want to talk at all
You are so moody, and so false
you bring it to the core
You make it obvious to me
That you consider doing this
You shout and hate if we share thoughts
You try to persuade me in your eternal selfish hate
You don't see anything at all through all the pain
That cover up your face
It seems so sad it seems so wrong
But actually it's getting strong
In our society
And in this case I must regret
to make you loose your head
You seem so dark and far away
Your persona left you yesterday
When I see through your eyes
I see a pack of lies
And everyone tries to talk and to persuade
Because they fear that they might loose you
But I can see they're doing wrong
Because they try it all along
I ask you what your problem is
After a while you don't reply
But then you shout it in my face
You feel so dead you

watching time pass by
I have so much to do
But I like when time is flowing by
I know I am wasting it
But a moment costs just so much effort
I feel like an old person
Always tired of this life
There is so much left to do
But I like wasting time
And so I lay and sleep
Just to be angry at myself
for doing nothing productive
And actually I feel so tired if I work all day
I need the rests
I need to sleep
But it just takes my time away
A Bond being hard work (Pokemon Fanfiction)We are now on an island near the coast of Hoenn. When it's a very clear blue sky in november you can sometimes see the hills of Hoenn and the smoke coming out of the volcano there. The island is very small and it's destiny is forged to be a travelling-trough place, for pokemon and humans, on their ship routes to Johto and from there, you can reach Kanto. It's not a far step, but the winds may blow in other directions and that's why this island is hard to reach.A Bond being hard work (Pokemon Fanfiction) in General Fiction More Like This
Some trainers can get there when they've finished a hard training and when their team solved the problem with the ocean's drift. Actually most of the people who live there are lonesome because they can't get back to the Hoenn region, and only stranded there by accident.
And so, it happened to Celi. A young trainer from the Sinnoh region, who loved traveling with ships, and so she got to know nearly all of the pokemon regions. But she has a burning heart and that's why she always wanted to reach higher aims. Well, actually some t

But still you're so afraid of dying
And an ordinary life, could be so boring
We want less and we want more
Just go on and do what you're supposed to
if they made fun out of you?
Still you hold the strings like a pupeteer
And actually it you who is singing
All along to this very sad
song of life and deception
Isn't it, oh isn't it very funny?
How you prentend to be
And in fact
You only share your despair with yourself at night
you rule the world
But you fall inside your core
So you don't worry at all
Till the night falls
And the curtain draws
And all the figures full
And you kill the enemy
Like all the others before
Like a play of chess you go on
And you dance and you dance
Like it's your last chance
Cause you only are
So damn afraid
Hatred to these wordsI hate you when you say such wordsHatred to these words in Free Verse More Like This
When I believe you at first
But then it gets to obvious
It gets to vicious
When I really truely believe you
I know there is something else
I know all these theories and I know the people around me
And you always say you do not
Belong to them all
I know there is no way around it
I believe in psychology
I never thought you were different
But you always told me you were
I never believed your childish foolishness
But you ever told me
You are proud to be who you are
Because you are faithful
I really want to be sad
But when I knew it all
I never am
And I let you go without even remembering
All these times
When we laughed
When you tickled me
When you tried to talk to me because I was angry
When I cried in your arms because I'd never wanted to let you go
When you cured me
And when I knew there's a way back to insanity
When you cured me from insanity
But being insane was being true, being sane
And when you glued all the shattered pieces together
And now I see,
A glow in the darkLet me tell you something. This story isn't about anything you know. It's about something different, it's so much more as you think now. And however you say, it's all happening behind your little backs. When I stood on a hill and fought with my fears and lived between light and dark, you were at your warm home in front of a beautiful fire, burning gently in your Oven, to get warm food.A glow in the dark in Short Stories More Like This
You are such a brat, your pure existence scared me.
I hated being around you all. And so I went to the Hills.
Where no life is found, and no one ever existed.
It was so cold around here, just I wanted to feel right now and I wanted to FUCKING being alone, and NO I didn't wanted you to follow me.
Either way, you did, you followed the witch into the woods, through the stream and the ice-cold mountains and snow storms.
I never knew why you should do this. But you ruined it all.
You bloody Idiot. You ruined it all, and I didn't even kill you.
When you looked at me through the storms, why did you hide?

A Bond being hard work (Pokemon Fanfiction) part 2The weather this morning was slightly clouded. Celi felt the freedom and the new alacrity coming from inside her heart. A cool breeze blew her hair as she rode along the cost. Feeling a bit of excitement, she dealt with her fear. If she got lost, who would find her? If she got hurt, who would be there? She only took Fluffy with her and so she needed to count only on him. Tired she sank in his soft fur and closed her eyes for a moment. When she opened them again and she saw the woods rushing by. It was somewhat calming, but on the other hand it was frightening too. So she decided to rest a few seconds, and tried to sleep. The ground seemed to shake as she was carried on her arcanines' back. An inner calmness made her remember melodies from the past and suddenly her thoughts lead her to an end. What if she never got back to land? Her friends, her family... what will happen to them? While thinking about this, she fell asleep.A Bond being hard work (Pokemon Fanfiction) part 2 in General Fiction More Like This

The sadness and happiness paradoxHow am I supposed to have fun. This world is full of energy, lending them to the people, like me, to fill their lives. But then it takes it back. And actually this is the kind of madness, no one likes to accept. That's why we believe in God, or in other things. We want to feel well, and we want to cast away the madness and all the bad feelings.The sadness and happiness paradox in Free Verse More Like This
I just wanted to be worth something, but is being worth defined by being worth something to people who love you?
There is always this kind of sun, which brings me over the hills. But actually I feel like seeing something we're aware of and something which is oh so special because we all do like it's no there. So we are happy. But did you ever feel this happy, as you felt when something really unexpected was done to you? I think so obvious of my mistakes, they seem to stick everywhere I go. I loose everything because I see how live is a game. And someday I have to endure endless pain or endless revealing nothingness. We all end up somewhere, but
