The girl giggled as she bounded along the grassy fields, small arms outstretched in attempt to catch the colorful fluttering figure. The slightly older boy watching over her shifted his position from under the tree, crossing his arms over his chest as he pressed his back to the trunk. He crinkled his nose as he watched the five-year-old fall down into the grass. He expected her to burst out into tears, but she only laughed as she rolled around the plush green surface. The boy rolled his eyes as he stood from underneath the shade of the tree.
“Oi, what’re you doing?” he asked, quirking an eyebrow down at the little girl.
She giggled, eyes brightening at his voice. She sat up, patting the soft ground beside her. “Come sit and play with me, Levi!” she cheered.

"Yeah, Jean." Levi mumbled, tapping his fingers against the wood in a methodical pace. "How much do I owe you?" He asked, fumbling for his wallet.
"On the house, buddy." Jean said with a grin.
Levi sent him a halfhearted glare. "Don't call me that."
"I'll call you Shorty instead." Jean said. Levi rolled his eyes.
He glanced to the side, seeing an unfamiliar form where the television used to be. "You got a stage now?" He asked, now turning to get a full view of the new object.

Slipping on the white gloves, you gave the woman a glare. "I really would rather help clean up the debris than identifying the dead." You told her. You took the mask and wrapped it around your head so it covered your nose and mouth.
"Yes but unfortunately, all of those positions have been taken. You need to take all the dead bodies and bring them over here so we can burn them before a sickness spreads. If you know any of them, tell us." The woman said bluntly. You sighed and gave her a small nod before walking down the street.

A strong beam of brilliant moonlight shone through the agape window, the wonderful woodsy scent of the large trees in the distance sifting inside the hushed and barren room. The clouds dappled the sky in an uneven pattern, giving the light specks of blindness before the luminous ray broke through the thick barrier to shine once again on the ground below. And as the soft light created by the thin candle illuminated only a small part of the room, it flickered with energy and life, awaiting to escape it's single-flame prison and spring into an engulfing fire. The slightly frosty wind threatened to burn out the glowing meager blaze, only succeeding in chilling your body enough to send quite a few shivers traveling up your spine.

You forced yourself to paste a pleasant smile onto your glossy lips, rolling your hips as the men in the crowd before you hollered louder than usually, most likely because Jean was in charge of the bar tonight and he always enjoyed spiking the drinks with a little extra something. Hurriedly gathering the dollars being thrown your way, you strutted off the stage, counting the bills as your form disappeared behind the large red curtains.

Perchance, how his gaze would linger over yours for a hushed moment, and how you'd see the entirety of the never-ending sky above in his eyes. Maybe the way his movements would flow together so tranquilly, as if they were water rushing over smooth stones in a stream. Or it could even be the way the tips of his digits would brush over you with the hesitance and delicacy one would use with a feather. Yet all of it, every single second of it was so...
The aura of simplicity surrounding him was strong enough to seem complex, intricate even. His personality was so withdrawn and he only allowed bits and pieces of it to be seen, and that was all of him that anyone ever knew, and yet why he did all of this was unbeknownst to you. As m

The charcoal-silver quill he gripped fiercely in between his callous-covered digits held the grace of a heather blowing in the gentle midday breeze, and yet the harsh brutality of a cactus in a barren desert. It's fine golden tip became encompassed by the jet liquid enclosed in a miniature glass bottle, only to resurface with the fluid sticking to the metal as if it were clinging onto the last string of sanity it contained. The continuous flickering light of the dainty candle beside him seemed to add to the serene aura spread about him.

Head pounding to the beat of a discordant drum and vision blurred as if he were underwater, he groggily propped himself up on his elbow, rubbing his palm grimly over his bloodshot eyes.

I feel like I've awakened from a comatose state
And the world has gone on without me.
I stretch my legs and take a walk outside
And for the very first time I see:
A strange kind of beauty, that is utterly alluring
It calls out to my spirit with the gentlest of cries.
I'm afraid to admit, for it was rather unmanly,
That I left with tears in my eyes...

For the time being, the creature looked to be competent with the war hammer, at least to the degree of Lina's natural skill. Sanguinus had no doubt that it would have absorbed her knowledge, but the key to his victory lay in the extent to which the creature was able to use the knowledge it had usurped. Sanguinus intended to test this immediately and in an expression of his excitement he flashed a wide grin toward the creature, showing off his razor sharp canine teeth.

Before you knew it, the sun had disappeared from the sky and it had begun to rain. You were left in the outskirts of the city wet, cold, and in the dark. You couldn’t stop the tears from pouring out of your eyes when it hit you that you were hopelessly lost.
Through some trick of fate you had managed to make it back to your apartment building, though your tears never stopped flowing. The shock had wracked your body so much that despite you being in a safe place you still didn’t feel entirely safe.

Sleeping was easier with Levi accompanying you; he not only gave you a source of warmth, but a sense of security.
What you could only assume had been hours passed and Levi found himself curled beside your sleeping form with his arm slung over your waist and the other nestled under your head. Once becoming aware of his position he quickly tore himself away from you and regained his composure. Did he seriously spoon you? In his sleep? How embarrassing.
He slowly, cautiously brought a knee up to his body and rested an arm overtop, rubbing the sleepiness from his eyes as he tried to prepare himself for the day ahead. He wasn’t sure how much longer he’d be able to continue.
The sudden jerk of Levi pulling his arm out from under your head had stirred you awake, much to your misfortune. You hated waking up. As troubling as your dreams were, the sweet embrace of sleep was always something you would welcome.
You tried to get back to sleep, thinking that if you closed your eye

How did he allow himself to stoop so low?
Why were you making such a face? No – he knew why. He knew exactly why. It was his fault. Entirely his fault.
The kind, gentle features of your indescribably beautiful visage had been contorted into an expression that tore his heart from his chest.
Being with you was foolish. He should never have done this to you – to himself.
Kaneki was a ghoul with more enemies chasing after him than you could imagine. As long as you were with him, you were in danger. They tried to go after you, multiple times, but each time he stopped it. He found a way to protect you, before you even knew the danger that they posed.
Before he accepted his ghoulish nature, Kaneki wouldn’t have known how to deal with them.
But now, as he is, he knew. And whenever he took to “taking care” of them, he let their suffering linger.

Hanji, you should let go of her at once, you could get the virus otherwise.” Despite his near-desperation to eliminate the threat, that threat being you, from the Walls, Erwin still had managed to keep a level-headed attitude. You almost wondered how he could do such a thing.

Blood was smeared all over his body. His skin was stained with crimson, and he didn’t know what to fear the most.
Should he have feared the fact that so much blood had gotten on him in the first place, or the fact that it didn’t belong to him?
Kaneki could barely remember anything. All he could recall was a hunger, ingrained deeper than an old root into soil, bringing him more pain than his own slipping humanity. When was the last time he had fed? The memory was lost from his mind. For a time longer than he’d cared to track all he ever feasted on was the damn coffee and sugar cubes Yoshimura gave him.
He probably shouldn’t have gone on that date with you in the state he was in. He probably shouldn’t have dated you to begin with. You were just a human, like he once was. Being with you was dangerous.

Your eyes traced over his every keen feature, from the curve of his nose, to the point of his chin, to his sable hair framing his forehead, casting delicate shadows across his brow, to his thin, silvery eyes, gazing mindlessly into an unknown oblivion, one you could never be a part of.
You were his creation, made to be his companion, a strange composition of wires and fluids, weaving into an incredible tapestry that brought you to life. Despite your uncanny resemblance to his kind, he always explained to you that you were made by his hands, rejected by the living, but unclaimed by the dead.

Something to help pull me free

Someone who's beautiful or amazing or kind
Someone who won't let you down
Someone who won't break your heart
Someone who can give you everything

I ScreamI screamI Scream in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And let that thought
Hold me for eternity.
Let it embrace me
As I am left with nothing
Besides my own
While I am offered
As a "willing" sacrifice,
To your correct society
In which the weak
Are meant to be prayed for
And preyed upon...
Instead of helped.
Whilst I am hunted
And ripped to shreds
While you look on as though
I am not there
As though you didn't
Choose this future for me
With your acts
With your indifference!
As though you aren't glad
That it is I
In the mouths of these beasts.
So even if you won't see
Every damn moment
Of my end.
So that you remember
That even in the fate
You chose for me
That I fought
that I lost
And that I screamed.
This isn't the type of love that deserves poetryThis isn't the type of loveThis isn't the type of love that deserves poetry in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
that deserves poetry,
born out of an inability
to survive alone,
born from a necessity
to believe in a lie
I'll continue to whisper
in your ear each night.
"I'll protect you"...
A lie neither of us believe
and neither of us dispute
for fear of losing our only tether
to this decrepit existence
that we both fear so much...
this love isn't romantic
nor is it confrontational
its not comforting
nor is it disturbing,
It's merely there
sinking beside us
in the sea of life ,
that's gently drowning us,
we can almost breathe.

She knew mustn't forget it
Sliding it on her finger might sting
But she knew he'd love the sentiment,
"Then the pearls , yes the pearls"
Though they no longer glistened in the light
He'd still see they were as beautiful
As when he had bought them that night,
"Oh yes the bracelet, that will look nice"
She could hardly remember the jewelry he liked
But she needn't worry, mustn't worry
For she would see him tonight
"Oh what else, what else, what else can I wear
After all this time I'll finally see my dear
And I must look my most beautiful,
Perhaps there's something for my ears"
She thought looking at an empty jewelry box
Every expensive piece cloaking her body
As she walked out the door
Completely unaware she might seem gaudy,
But even if she knew,
She surely wouldn't care
This was for her beloved
The man who loved the jewelry she'd wear,
She walked quickly to the bar
Where they had planned to meet
Took the booth in which together
They had always used to eat

Please let me go-"
And mama said "This kind of pain
She surely did know-"
And mama said "She loved me
Yes, but she wanted to go"
And I cried to mama "Please
Mama please I love you so
Please mama stay
Don't leave me alone."
And my mama said "This
She surely did know-
But she had to go
God was calling her home"
And I cried to mama "Please
Mama please you don't need to leave
Right here's your home
Please don't leave me to grieve."
And mama said "Remember this son
You need know,
That your mother always loved you
And loved you so
But ,son, your mother really needs to go
It might not be fair
But God is calling her home
And since God called I need to go
But remember what I said
And that I'll always love you so"
And mama never said a thing to me again
And this day I finally let go of her hand.
There's a devil in my bottleThere's a devil in my bottleThere's a devil in my bottle in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
he's offering me a trade
one singeing little sip
and he'll burn my memories away,
and I let him burn
the remnants of it down
and from his little bottle
I began to drown.
There's a devil at my doorstep
he's offering me a deal
if I burn it to the ground
my sadness he will steal
and I let him in
to take from me
all the things I don't want
or can't agree
There's a devil on my shoulder
he's giving me choice
let life drain what's left
or pull the trigger just once
and I want to listen to him
what else should I do
the devil's already here
so hell must be here too.
There's a devil in my heart
he likes to speak to me
with petty lies and cheap dreams
and pathetic arsonies
and I ignore him,
I leave him be,
cause not matter how alluring he is
