A Stranger's loveHis charming eyesA Stranger's love by jayscriminal
Small smile that greets hello
The black frame glasses surrounding his eyes
A stranger he is
I fell for a stranger once
But that stranger was different
He was non-committed
That stranger was no good
I have bad feelings for that stranger
I have positive feelings
Heart beats with happiness
No bad feelings
I believe he is good
He won't be the next heartbreaker
He could be it
But I can't do it
For I know
The stranger is my last love's best friend
I fell for a stranger
But never a stranger of someone's best friend
summer stormthere are two sides to the angersummer storm by kathleenfergie
that i hold inside of me;
there are the days when i can only scream,
incoherently babbling in a tearstained tone,
shaking my arms up to a god who will
no longer answer the pleas of a stupid little girl.
where i feel the world has wronged me
so my eyes flood, spilling out onto
my cheeks like traitor soldiers
waging war as they drip down my neck.
then there are small moments where
i am so silent in my boiling emotions
that even i am afraid of myself,
where my tongue becomes venomous
and i spit pretty words with conviction
where all i can feel is my chest contracting
at the pace of a racehorse,
my voice hitting my opponent in loud
thunderclaps even though my voice does
not even reach above a whisper.
i am full of rage
and some days i think it consumes me,
causing me to sit in silence, mulling over
the curses i should have cast out,
the people i should have left to burn
in the fiery pits of my past,
or to drown in the rainstorms my eyes have created.
The Little FellowsI bought a house to fill another's needs,The Little Fellows by LeDbrite
just a simple little house to give them a shelter.
On an impulsive inspiration,
I also bought some food to go with the house.
Again, nothing fancy,
nothing that'd make a dent in my pocketbook,
just enough to provide them a meal.
Driving home through the snow,
I didn't dawdle,
My dinner was waiting,
and I had yet to give them my gift.
Once at home,
I stopped a moment in the snow,
then ran inside and cooked my meal,
took my seat by the fire,
and waited for my gift to be found.
It took a while,
but they soon came,
the little birds to make their claim,
and dislodging snow.
It was supposed to be spring,
but it still snowed,
delaying the birds from building their nests.
For that I felt sorry for the little fellows,
for with the snow they had no home.
Though free on wings,
they still suffer the weather.
The price of wings,
is that they're miserable, cold fellows in the snow.
Finding Middle-Earth: 3Chapter 3: Dysfunctional RealityFinding Middle-Earth: 3 by LeDbrite
A light flicked on, and a voice called him into awareness.
“Come on, Kili! We don’t have time for games this morning,” Fili insisted, shaking Kili’s shoulder for good measure (to make sure he was truly waking up), and left the room almost as quickly as he had come in, already awake and ready to go.
Bemoaning his acquiescence, Kili hauled himself out of bed, muttering every word of complaint that he could remember at the moment, though they came out completely incomprehensible. It was ridiculous having to get up at this hour! He could’ve spent it better by sleeping in- not driving.
Disappearing into the bathroom, he quickly shed his clothes and stepped into the shower, letting the warm water immerse him. Jolting him into instant awareness, it chased every remaining chill from his body, nerves tingling with pleasure, and allowed him to think more graciou
Sweet F.A - The Stanley ParableSweet F.A - The Stanley Parable by IndigoCode
The rather eccentric :iconShiro-Byakko: requested (encouraged? encourested?) me to make story about an unsound Stanley sitting in the broom closet playing airplane with a dustpan out of spite for the Narrator. Welp. Here you go!
“Stanley was fat and ugly and really really stupid.”
No, that didn’t work... Go ahead and try again.
“Due to his inability to find his way out an empty, worthless room, Stanley was stuck here. Or perhaps his hefty figure made it impossible to exit the room.
“But, unsurprisingly, he didn’t bother too much about it. Ignorance really is bliss, isn’t it? Ignorance…”
Hm. Too much. Try again.
“Stanley. I’m tired. Come on.”
“Come on, Stanley! What is so fascinating about this room?”
It was then known to the Narrator that he greatly overestimated Stanley’s intelligence.
While he never compared the man to Stephen Hawking, he knew this sit
Eternal Sleep- Chapter 1: Awakening[Fi's POV]Eternal Sleep- Chapter 1: Awakening by kariheart0130
` My drift into an endless sleep wasn't as easy as I recall. I'm leaving my master, my job has been done but a sudden feel of emotion welled up inside of me. I feel joy. Happiness even. Relaxation. Though, I also feel a strange sharp pain of regret and sadness. All these emotions are well, they let me know I'm capable of feeling. Though, I had a third emotion. I strange emotion. Longing.
The only problem was... longing for what exactly? Another chance to be with Master? To be outside? To be my own person? To have... a normal body? All these thoughts... all these emotions... they raced. They raced through my head like a database of computer. I just stood... silence was my name.
Though, something snapped me out of my silence. The instant rush of an exhale made me snap back to my senses. I was suddenly... content again. My thoughts even shifted from a loud buzzing to a ceased stillness. I felt more aware I was at m
The ImpossibleMaria ran her fingers through her dark hair, the rich brown locks rippling down her back. She didn’t often have her hair down; it was tedious and could get in the way when she was trying to get a good shot. Bowing her head, she crossed her arms over her chest and bit her bottom lip. Maria had worked hard to get a spot into SHIELD, to become Fury’s right hand man – woman. She had no time for a relationship, for love, for all of that silly stuff that made women potentially unfit to be agents.The Impossible by Tris96
She still remembered the day when Steve Rogers walked on board of the Helicarrier, giving Fury that ten dollar bill and looking around in wonder. She had seen photos of him, had listened to Coulson ramble on and on about the damn soldier but she hadn’t expected for there to be….a connection. Maria had felt rather than seen Steve come into the room, but she had pushed her feelings aside. They had had a god loose, wreaking havoc and planning to destroy the world.
Reluctant Playwright (10,500 Words)“There will be no rehearsal?! Why?” The overweight, overly makeup clad, official demanded grumpily.Reluctant Playwright (10,500 Words) by dtb84
“Of course there will be no rehearsal, Scipio. My troupe knows its lines well. I personally guarantee it will be an excellent play. Even more, this is a play that is owned only by me and my actors. I cannot risk someone spoiling it for the crowd before the festival.” Romulus was lying through his teeth as usual. He had no play lined up at all.
The fat magistrates face lit up, “A new play for my eyes?! I have seen every play any local troupe has put on in the last twenty years—some were remarkably bad, but that be neither here nor there. If you say you have a new play for us I will let you slide on the rehearsal.” With a smile he added, “Of course you know the punishments for lying to a government official.”
Romulus did, that was why he and his troupe had to leave there last town. Officials always wanted more than they were willing to
Kate (day-dreamer)Kate paints her nails teal with black speckles because she says they remind her of egg shells left to warm themselves in the summer sun.Kate (day-dreamer) by Echolalic-Ellie
(I tell her I've never seen a teal egg but she tut-tut's at me and presses our lips to the pages of an old book until our tongues are tattooed over by words from a dead poet's mouth.)
Kate cuts her own hair with scissors she found rusting in an old, waterlogged box in her grand-father's attic.
(I tell her rust doesn't cut, only bruises, but she rolls her faded eyes like dice and tells me that's nice but I shouldn't believe everything I read.)
Kate uses honey and paper bark to wash her face because she says it's all made of star-stuff and she likes to touch the night sky.
(I tell her it doesn't equate to the same thing but Kate is a believer and my soft words don't change her.)
Guiltywe sit in the pale half-light; summer dies around us. you reach over and pluck the cigarette from my fingers, inhale like it's the last time. and maybe it is.Guilty by Echolalic-Ellie
the jury is out there somewhere, preparing to sleep on their choice. we both know that you may not come home tomorrow, but neither of us are willing to say it out loud.
smoke curls in the air between us; I pretend not to notice when your body begins to tremble. when you begin to cry, I tell myself you've rubbed ash into your eye.
Monday 4/14/14 Goodbyes 4/14/14Monday 4/14/14 Goodbyes by honestblogger
I've been thinking a lot about goodbyes lately. I'm about to graduate from high school and in my choir we have a tradition of doing this thing called a "senior roast", where we basically give our final messages to our fellow seniors. I haven't decided what I'm going to say yet -probably a bunch of mushy stuff- and I hope people say nice things about me.
I realized today, however, that goodbyes are never pleasant. I don't mean, "Goodbye, see you tomorrow." I mean,"Goodbye, have a nice life. I'm probably never going to see you again. Those goodbyes just plain suck, especially if you love the person. Today I learned that a very dear friend of mine might be moving far away. I am still hoping that they will not have to move, otherwise I will be very heartbroken.
Another thing that I will be saying goodbye to very soon is my childhood. I am turning eighteen in August and I am not afraid to admit that I am scared. I am not the person I pictured I would be c

First 32 Comments Gets a Text Stamp/Haiku Poem!NOTE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR RESPONSES!First 32 Comments Gets a Text Stamp/Haiku Poem! by British-Prophetess
Since yesterday marked my three years anniversary of my being a member of DA I'll be doing two more request giveaways for today and tomorrow! This is the second request journal in the series
I'm offering 32 free haiku poems as well as a free text stamp request for the first 32 people that comments on this journal entry!
I want to try and improve upon writing haiku poems and this is the best way in my opinion. If you want your haiku to be based on a word prompt, then please do let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do for you If you don' t know what a haiku is, then here is the definition:
"Haiku is an unrhymed, syllabic form adapted from the Japanese: three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables. Because it is so brief, a haiku is necessarily imagistic, concrete and pithy, juxtaposing two images in a very few words to create a single crys
Sword art work request.Art request.Sword art work request. by fanfictionaxis
I have an object that I need drawn and I do not have the skill to draw it. And yes, I did try and all that came out of it was a big headache. I have the object that I want drawn seen here: http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h326/fanfictionaxis/Castle%20and%20scenes%20for%20Warrior%20Princess/Tatyanassword.jpg
Where the Thundercat symbol is, is supposed to be a dark blue gemstone embedded into the sword's blade itself. The sword pretty much looks just like the sword of omens but the blade is made of carbon steel, which is a dark gray color, the hilt itself is wrapped in dark brown leather straps.
If you can help me with this, I'd appreciate it as my skill at drawing swords is quite pathetic.
