When I was young
I was very outgoing
I wanted to be friends
With everyone I saw

A girl sitting all alone
Reading a book in the corner
She seemed sad
I invited her to play

She doesn't like physical activities
I still talk to her anyways
Even though we're so different
I still remain by her side

When third grade comes
She becomes even quieter
When I go over to play
The mood feels different

Her sister used to be so kind
Now she just looks down on us
Her brother's still happy
But seems to be hiding something

I put it out of my mind
Even as she continues to retreat
I keep trying to break through
But her shell just gets thicker

She's not my only friend
But I still often gravitate to her
Even while I'm talking with others
I still find myself worrying about her

When we enter high school
She becomes even more distant
As monsters start attacking
A new heroine comes to defend us

She becomes ever more distant
As the heroine becomes more visible
The two seem rather similar
But there's no way they're the same

While the heroine's confident
My friend is constantly anxious
She'll smile in the face of danger
While my friend would hide in the corner

Physical similarities mean nothing
If I know for a fact that personalities
Just don't match up in any way
There's no way she'd hide this from me

I meet a new friend today
A kid who's an unstoppable force
The unending smiles are a nice change
Compared to my best friend's tears

Not that I don't care for her
I just need a change of pace
Something to balance it out
So I spend time with both of them

One day while writing online
A small little blog I had
Suddenly explodes in popularity
I ask for help in the ensuing chaos

She comes to my aid
Helps protect me from insanity
Her confidence seems to mirror
The smirk of the town hero

Soon I live a double life
Keeping my blog afloat
I act like I'm normal at school
But inside I'm terrified

One day someone may come
Find out who I really am
I'm not ready to become
Some sort of idol

Life continues to go by
The two antonyms stay friends
One day I can't hide
My feelings anymore

When her tears finally stop
Her smile brings me such joy
It looks like I've
Fallen in love

with my best friend.

I can't possibly tell her
How weird would that be?
So I keep it a secret
Act like everything's fine

This web of deception
I've tangled myself into
How does anyone manage
To hide anything for so long?

Years pass and one day
She stumbles in through the window
The town heroine is hurt
She has no one else to turn to

Through the mess of
Tears sweat and blood
I realize that I wasn't
The only one hiding myself

When my friend is repaired
We sit in silence for a while
Talk about everything that
We never felt comfortable saying

And in the moonlit bedroom
With thunder rumbling in the distance
My dreams finally come true
And the best friends become more

So when she disappears
No longer part of this world
Nobody cries harder
Than the partner she left behind

Titan!Eren x Reader (REQUESTED ONESHOT)
Since when did the sun not shine warmth? Since when were my hands stained crimson, and then dried up to turn into a dark wine color? Since when had I no longer feared Titans? No, that was not the question to ask. Why is a Titan so gently, and delicately wrapping its hands around me, while I lay without a single scratch on my body in its palms? From below, I could see the Titan's angular jaw and pointy teeth, while it lacked teeth and cheek skin. The Titan's jet-black hair reached its shoulder, swaying in the breeze. The deeply-set eyes seemed to only look forward, as the Titan walked through the grassy plains... What was I doing there, outs

Colds and Kisses [Levi x Reader]
You admired the Lance Corporal. But saying that, there weren't many people who didn't. The only problem with him, you found, was an ego that could only be matched by his skill, which was saying a lot. Today was no exception to his big headedness. You see, poor Levi had somehow managed to pick up quite the cold. You walked into the Lance Corporals room with a cup of hot coffee and a bag. Levi coughed into his had, before sniffling and shifting his gaze to you. His cold stare trying to halt you, but you only laughed at his futile attempt. The Corporal was less frightening in this weak state. "Now, now, don't do that! I'm only try to help!" Y
