The VowsThe Vows by unusedEmotion
We stood at the altar
In the fresh aesthetics of spring
You took my hand in yours
And slid on that fateful ring
I wore a fair dress
Clothed in a flurry of white
The poison smile
On my wedding, the only blight
So beautiful it was
My dress stained red
Our passion unbidden
I took off your head
We promised love
Till death do us part
And it shall
For your head, take my heart
My dear, my darling
Forget me not
Honor our righteous vows
And love me till I rot
We vowed forever
Let my love
Bury us together
TherapyWhen I see ghosts they look perfectly real and solid -- like a living human being. They are not misty; I can't see through them; they don't wear sheets or bloody mummy bandages. They don't have their heads tucked under their arms. They just look like ordinary people, in living color, and sometimes it is hard to tell who is a ghost.Therapy by QueenWolf12

"Anne, do you feel safe here?" the therapist asks. "Come on, talk to me."
I don't like him. He's white as a sheet with splotchy skin and dark rings under his eyes. He looks like the ghost of a scarecrow wearing a suit with that long body of his. Like someone took him and stretched him out like play-dough.

I hug Sharebear close and bury my face into his soft fur.
Dr. Scarecrow taps his yellow nails repeatedly on the arm of his chair.

In our very own way
We were born with special talents

MagnoliaI want to tell you a tale, not any old tale such as a happy go lucky princess nor a gruesome foul story... A tale which will be unbelievable beyond your ears, but don't let your mind fool you, let it be your guide. To where you ask!? Well where all your dreams and thoughts live, your imagination. This tale begins where the first flower grew, the magnolia flower and from this small delicate flower rose something, something very strange and mysterious, a fairy? no, this creature has no wings, A pixie? it doesn't have the ears, well what is it? A human almost like a tiny woman, her bright blue eyes and hair like the orange sky at sun set. It was strange that her skin was as pale as the moon but when she smiled her face glittered like the sunshine. The lady lifted her right hand and stared right at her palm as if she never had a body before, she whipped her hand away in disbelief hitting the growing flowers beside her, she turned around to see what she had hit and before she knew it a smalMagnolia by PurpleCandyHugs

Bad Trend in Teens [More to a journal]I heard from my friend, that many of her classmates are or want to use e-Cigarette. And this is so messed up, as we are still young (middle-schooler).Bad Trend in Teens [More to a journal] by Clover0Project
First of all, what is e-Cigarette? Electric Cigarette/Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems, a new cigarette type. Detailed here.
Also known as 'vapor' in Indonesia. It may be more healthy and environmentally friendly than normal cigarette, but the negative sides still the same.
Well, read the rest of the thing in wikipedia.
e-Cigarette is kind of expensive in Indonesia (the cheapest one as far as my cousin know is 500.000 IDR, I don't know what about the liquid, and if refill...). But well, my school is a prestigious school for those who are rich (I'm not that rich though) so it's not that surprising...
I know what is e-Cigarette since my cousin uses it too. My cousin already work, and e-Cigarette is a trend in her workplace.
So, back to main point. My friend showed the

WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
I was born on the outskirts of London, England. I come from an English family and am an English girl through and through.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR CURRENT PLACE OF RESIDENCE?
I do! I have lived in London all my life and couldn’t imagine living in any other part of the world. London, and in fact England, is a wonderful place to live in my humble opinion.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START WRITING?
I think a main inspiration to me was definitely my parents. They encouraged me to read from a very young age. I would spend almost all of my time as a young child reading. Every weekend my parents would take me to my local library where I would take out several books and read them all for the following week. I loved readi
The Legendary Irish PeisteIn the sixties, Captain Lionel Leslie tried to lure the monsters of Connemara in county Galway to appear on the surface. He undertook his first experiment in October 1965 in Lough Fadda. Leslie obtained the approval to spring in the lake with dynamite. It was his aim to scare the monster with the shock. 10 seconds after the detonation of 2 kilogram explosives, he saw that a black something appeared. Unfortunately the lake was so troubled by the explosion that it was difficult to recognize details. But what he saw was enough to convince the people of the existence of a monster in the lake.The Legendary Irish Peiste by Malintra-Shadowmoon
In October 1967, Leslie planned to fish out Lough Fadda with a net. His efforts stayed without any success. But in 1968, the Captain planned with a team to search Lough Nahooin bei Claddaghduff (Galway) with the help of a net. It was a little lake, only 90 meters wide and 75 meters broad. They were convinced to find the monster because five months ago, a farmer who lived nearby Stephen Coyne

St. Valentines Day in the year 1900 granted brilliant sunshine to the village of Woodend near Melbourne (Australia). On this day, the Applegate College usually undertook a school excursion in the nearer surrounding of the village. In the early morning, a group of schoolgirls with their teachers set out for a picnic to one of the famous outing places. In the evening, four of them had disappeared, three of them were never seen again.
According to the report, a group of schoolgirls with their teachers drove out for a picnic at Hanging Rock. This geological rock group of rocks and monoliths is several million years old and of vulcanic origin. Around the turn of the century , it was a famous outing place.
The excursion group consisted of 19 girls, most of them were over 10 years old. They were accompanied by their two teachers, Diane de Poitiers and Greta McCraw. At Saturday morning, the group set out to a 7 kilometers far place. They ate there and

“Hello? Who are you?” She just stared at him, confused. She was only 15 years old, focused only on trying to find a cure for her mother.
“Blue Jay,” She replied simply.
The Loremaster had decided to leave the safety of the Guardian Tower in Paxia because of a prophecy his oracle had said only a week before. He was told that the Chosen One would soon make an appearance in the world of Lore. It was easy to say that he was ecstatic. He immediately left, sending a quick word to all of the corresponding Guardian Towers around Lore.
That’s where Blue Jay came into his little ‘fiasco’.
He was travelling with Sage Uldor who resided in Battleon. A few guards were following him because they believed that their leader would alway
Pretty Golden GirlThere once was a girl who was prettier than me.Pretty Golden Girl by GeorgiaKitty
Her hair shone like gold in the sunlight,
And her face was delicate and pure.
Whenever she was smiled,
They all sighed,
For she was their pretty golden girl.
Now, wherever she went,
They all swooned,
Unknown to just how under her spell they were.
It was said that when she laughed
The birds would sing,
And the world was a much happier place
When their pretty golden girl was pleased.
But I was never pleased, nor happy, nor joyful
To see the girl around the town.
For whenever she appeared,
Her magic made me vanish in the face of my peers.
So I took it upon myself,
To rid the world of her and make it more fair.
With knife in hand, and blood stained clothes,
Wounded body, and a face that was pretty no more.
Their pretty golden girl dead.
She had outshined me for far too long.
Euphoria Chapter OneEuphoria Chapter One by TheIllustriousKatt
The same storm has been raging on for three days now. School was canceled for the last two including today. Layla Grand sat in her room, reading her Harry Potter books. She could quote the books by now she had read them so many times. She set down her book, unable to concentrate and looked out the window, yet again, hypnotized by the perfect drops of rain falling from the endless sheet of clouds. The storm resided primarily over the small town of Round Rock, Texas but sometimes branched out over Austin, Georgetown, Cedar Park and Pflugerville. Layla leapt up from the queen sized bed in the middle of her room, almost crashing into her table on her left. She ran down the stairs and took a right to head straight outside.
“I’m going to the library.” She yelled to her mother. As if she cared in the slightest.

Layla awoke to a knock on her door, shivering, in her still wet clothes and lying in her, now soaked, bed. She had always imagined waking up after a day of insane scenarios not completely remembering what had happened until finally the memories flooded back. This is not how it happened for her. Layla dreamed about Michael the previous night and woke up with the idea of him super-glued to the spot light in her brain.
“Michael?” She knew the sound of the answering voice as if she had been listening to it her entire life.
“Yes,” He replied as angelic as she remembered. “Sorry to wake you. I just wanted to tell you that I made breakfast.” She heard him shuffling around outside of her door, nervous.
“One moment, please. I’ll be right out.” She said smiling as she rose from her bed and dashed to her closet.

Dust to DustHave you ever had food turn to ash in your mouth,Dust to Dust by BEK1995
Incinerated by the twisting flames of a dragon
No bigger than a kitten
Curled lazily in your stomach?
Have you ever had your vision clouded over with stars
That are suddenly too too close
And exploding with the roar of a lion
Louder than dynamite
In your ears?
Have you ever wanted it all to end
Because thoughts wore away the ridges in your brain
And the smoothness was like nails on a chalkboard
And it was all too slick
And sanity had nowhere to grip onto?
Have you ever lived your life oblivious to what was ahead
And then reached the Promised Land
Where the Dust in your lungs
Was just that:
And you could just blow it away with a puff of breath
And every so often take it out of your back pocket,
A wispy grey secret,
And poke through it curiously
And marvel at how you got from There to Here?
Because I have.

Even in my old age, I am a small girl again when I think of great-grandfather's stories, telling me of when his father rode against the 7th Cavalry, and the one called Long Hair, with those who lived in the sacred Black Hills. Who fought and overwhelmed the soldiers in their one great victory at the Little Big Horn, before the captured killings of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. Until all fell to the wrath of the Great White Father that ended at Wounded Knee.
Before then, it was as hot as any of the Elders could recall, and hard to remember a summer without any clouds in the sky. As horse soldiers wound their way in pursuit of the tribes who, for the first and last time, had joined as one nation with one resolve, to stop the desecration of the land, and regain a way of life. . .
It was at the great camp three miles long that
we came together, to prepare, with war songs,
sun dance visions, and ceremonial smokes.

But you never understood me.
So, I put my feelings on a shelf,
Hoping someday I'd be set free.
People come and people go
That is what I've learned.
But I got too close to raging fires
No wonder I got burnt.
You were the only one I ever trusted;
Secrets flew away.
I gave you everything you ever wanted
Every single day.
I should have known that this would happen,
It would all come to an end.
I guess I'm the fool for trusting you;
So much for being friends.

From who?” Ahsoka asked, then R7 projected a hologram of a hooded figure. “Greetings mercenary, I have something of interest to you I think.” The hologram said, and then a hologram of her old friend Barriss Offee appeared next to his. “I know your history with this Jedi.

It took a while as her key stuck into the keyhole. “Sorry about the antique door, for some reason dad really likes these, and I think this door in particular was made thousands of years before the colonization of this galaxy.” Hope said, about three or so minutes later Hope had finally opened the door. “You know, most people don’t use an antique like this.

I stifle a yawn as I step onto the platform and make my way to the station’s exit. “I need to stop putting in so much overtime”, I think to myself. I can barely stand up I feel so tired. The station is deserted except for one or two other commuters waiting on the various train platforms.Clip Clop by CupofCharlie
As I reach the exit and begin my walk down the main road, I coerce my earphones into my ears and select ‘shuffle’ on my ipod. ‘The Sound of Silence’ by Simon and Garfunkel begins to play. The only sounds I can hear outside of my earphones are the noises of impatient traffic, my shoes hitting the pavement and the rhythmic movement of my crisp suit swishing as I walk.

And here she is now, her name is Hope... the most beautiful girl I ever met in my life. I don't care if she's a robot, she was the only girl in school who liked me.
Her skin was bright silver, her eyes were blue, she wore a pink shirt, white shorts, pink flip flops, and white sunglasses. Her hair bright red and beautiful.
"Lawrence?" She said, seeing me sitting down at our table. "I thought I'd get here before you!" She said as she sat down with me, putting her sunglasses into her purse.
"Well... actually I thought we were supposed to be here at 12:30, so I've actually been waiting here for half an hour." I admitted, she just smiled at me.

of dust hovered above the dirt road as cars slowly drove past the small houses. Time
seemed to come to a stand-still as I continued to stare at the fallen boy who now lay
among various tools in the shed. The boy, now noticing my presence, shifted in alarm
and caused more tools to fall, along with a thick wooden plank. The plank smacked against
the boy's head with a loud thud, knocking him unconscious. He then slumped over in the
fallen pile of tools. My eyes widened in surprise and I stood there awkwardly, unsure of
what to do next.

Aleta Green-Cove slammed her back painfully to a cold stone wall. She panted quietly, her right hand slipping something the size of her palm into her trouser pocket. As she caught her breath, options careered through her mind. The way out of this cave system was only a few turns ahead but if she made a dash for it now, she would be seen.
A shuddering, echoing roar burst through the gaping dark tunnel entrance in the wall beside her. The tunnels here were enormous and stretched for miles. But they would have to, Aleta thought grimly, to be the home of such a gigantic beast.
"At least there's only one," she breathed softly. "More than one would be much, much worse."
Suddenly a screeching scream rushed through the tunnel. Aleta covered her ears with her hands, doubling over in an effort not to faint. She gasped as the screech stopped and she could move again. This was bad! It was getting closer.

to the the over-quenched ground.
No longer was it parched or yearning
for the liquid that gives life just as easily
as it takes it away.
Those drops now bounced off the breached banks
of the rivers that once held its kindred in check.

As those banks traveled farther and farther
from their source,
they grew closer to where I sat
and so too did the lessons that
drifted down river on those murky currents.
From a raindrop to a teardrop,
To a waterfall and a flood.
Each drop had the potential
to break the dam
and set the captive water free.
For each droplet, ripples appeared
whose waves traveled distances unmeasurable
from the river to its banks and to the heart.
It was a natural disaster unforseen
by the one who claims to see rain coming
from miles away.

Laying there, my body against your chest, as I listen to your heart beat; God, I feel so blessed.
Dear Lord, you put on this earth a boy that no one can afford, I never knew it could get so good, that someone this great could ever be real, but that's the way I feel.
He puts me up with you, up in that place where he fixed my heart that I thought was beyond repair.
Hold me tight and never let me depart for I gave you my whole heart; and when I'm in your arms it sets me free, when you pull me closer, and in so deep.
For the times you run your fingers through my hair, you say I'm your little angel flying in the sky, little do you know I want to be with you until the day I die.
After all, love isn't a plan. It doesn't have a beginning and certainly has no end; love happens and it is incredibly messy.
People around me can't understand the things I do or say; fighting so hard for something that could cause so much pain.

I screamed as I fell towards the water. It was like a nightmare, it felt like I was moving in slow motion. Even with my super speed I wouldn't be able to escape the water now.
A bunch of ideas that were impossible flashed through my head. I could freeze the water but humans would see. I could part the water but humans would see. I could simply fall and turn into a mermaid but humans would see!
There was nothing I could do now except accept my fate. They'll expose me and I'll never be able to go back home because I'll get arrested. But if I stay here I'll be a science experiment. I couldn't possibly wipe every student and teachers memories. I'm doomed.
This all flashed through my head in a second as I fell. Then I hit the water with a splash. The water engulfed me and bubbles tickled around me as they rose back to the surface. I floated there hovering over the bottom, not wanting to surface.

"Yeah it's just temporary though, she's usually home-schooled and is seeing what school is like," Natalie added quickly thinking up a reason for my sudden disappearance tomorrow. I once again admired her quick wit. She would be a great lawyer.
"Yes that's right. I'm Marissa by the way," I answered.
"Nice one standing up to Stacy like that. It's about time someone told her off. I'm surprised she gave up so easily though," he added.
"Let's just say, I'm very persuasive," I said smirking at my inside joke.
"Alright class quiet now, the lessons starting," the teacher called out as he walked through the door.
The teacher began to hand out a bunch of rectangular blocks of paper.
Out of the Blue-Chapter ElevenOut of the Blue-Chapter Eleven by SareBear96
As we made our way to the cafeteria I glanced around curiously at everything along the way. The school was a set of two rectangular building separated by a small courtyard in the middle. The building we were just in had 3 levels and housed all the classrooms.
The courtyard was filled with a bunch of decorated gardens with colourful flowers and the grass was a bright green. There were multiple tables placed strategically around and a few kids already sat in them with their lunches.
We headed toward the smaller building ahead and I began to smell food and hear noise as we got closer. Then I was hit by a huge wave of scents and noise as Natalie held open the door for Grace and I. I soon realised the building was actually one big room.
On one side of the room there was a large line of students. They all had trays and were filling their trays with different types of human food available from platters. There was a few adult humans behind the counter working a register
Basilisk VoicesDo you still hear those voicesBasilisk Voices by Sparks-Fly-Upward
that utter their unearthly language when
the light has gone from your world;
that take on a serpentine form
to slither about the room and
sully all things that glisten with
their undying sense of vainglory;
They ensnare you and entangle you
with their words that tear you
from any sense of solace.
They overload the senses and parlyze
the mind so that not a single gay thought
is given a chance to take root
Instead those thoughts are swallowed
whole by the basilisk voices that choke
and snarl as they wolf down the last
remaining severances of a liberated mind.
Morphing in and out of solid existance,
the serpants in silver and celadon begin to darken,
to turn almost invisable while they hold fast
their insidious fangs to your jugular.
Those foul spawns of the conscience are
now shadowy warriors that roar with insults and
stab your every orifice with their time-rusted blades
until you can no longer stand
in the ruby sea
Into the Darkness chapter 10Chapter 10- the Journey BeginsInto the Darkness chapter 10 by Dragongirl651
Three hours West of Skandor, the forest looked even more menacing. The grey trees were taller and thicker, the vines grew thorns and barbs, some of which looked poisonous, and the rivers and streams became rarer and rarer as they advanced. In addition, the forest was filled with SOUND. The chirping and chattering of birds and insects, the wind rustling through the dark leaves, the creaking of branches, and the occasional howl or roar of a distant beast.
Ruan guided the small group through the forest, followed closely by Taryn, who was holding a map and occasionally pointing things out. Ammil was next, followed by Maldor, who seemed ready for a fight at any given moment. Lienne brought up the rear, scanning the forest for signs of movement. At first, the five of them had talked about trivial things- the weather, the changes in their surroundings, the strange trees and animals they encountered. But it wasn't long before t
Into the Darkness chapter 9Chapter 9- Capital noticeInto the Darkness chapter 9 by Dragongirl651
City hall and the area around it were buzzing with activity. There were Hunters all around- talking to each other, showing off their weapons, eating, buying from the stands that had sprung up overnight... The place was the busiest that Lienne had ever seen it.
Taryn had refused to tell her why it was so important they go. Ever since the disaster that had happened with Ashpelt, neither of them had been particularly excited about Hunting, not even Lienne. So when Taryn woke her and told her in an excited voice that it was important that they go to city hall, Lienne was naturally curious about what had broken his depression.
The focus of the attention seemed to be a notice almost as large as the notice board itself. The paper it was printed on was tinged a light blue, as opposed to the usual whites and yellows that appeared. The crowd gathered around it made it impossible for her to get close enough and see wh

the raging fires outside to bless the alter where I waited
with our rings,
lilies-of-the-valley still braided into my hair.
The priest rests in his Lord's embrace,
garbed in crimson threads at the cathedral's gateway,
Nazi bullets in his body and in his Bible.
Our wedding banners are piles of chared ash
blessed by the coming lightning war.
The holy water has dried up, but my tears
still have not.
You said you'd come back, that you'd be mine,
to have and to hold
'til the bitter flames of death should tear us
But never did I get to hold you again,
to waltz with you in our first night of matrimony,
to watch the sun rise over the Meuse when
the rays came to bless our first
day as a single, perfect soul.
I'll stay here at the alter of St. Lawrence,
praying for you to come back
and leave your weapon at the door.
Though the ceiling may crumble and
the pipe organ collapse with a mighty
roar, they cannot hurt me now.
They cannot touch us ever again
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 14“What do you mean you’re an alien?” Ace asked his sister, his eyes wide with disbelief. Damien had adapted to the situation a lot quicker than Alexis would’ve thought. Then again, he did once room with Robin so she shouldn’t have been that surprised.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 14 by VerySecretAccount
A flare of jealousy enveloped her as she thought of Robin and Damien living with each other. She flushed and shook her head.
“I mean, Sammy, from before, told me all this shit about how I’m from a different galaxy thing and Robin is somehow connected to this. She told me that something was going to happen to us.” Alexis condensed it for all three of them; even she had some trouble understanding it.
“She did say that some people were going to try and come to ‘collect’ me.” She decided to refrain from going into any more detail due to the way the topic was heading, the last thing she wanted was Ace going ape shit in front of Damien.
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 13“Why do you think I honestly need someone with me while I do this?” Robin sighed, rolling her eyes. In one hand was a jagged knife and the other held her hair high in a bobble. Nero stared at her with concern whilst Kai chuckled somewhere in the background.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 13 by VerySecretAccount
“Don't girls get emotional about this type of stuff?” He asked, confused for once. He had offered to take over but Robin wouldn’t let him. She was too worried about him getting all emotional about it.
“Most girls yes but I have the time so I can grow it all back again.” She replied, pointing towards the door of her former apartment. She came back to do this and explain to Damien why she will be leaving.
“But still, isn’t it a primary code in your brains to get emotional about hair?” Nero cried, trying to get her to see the point he was trying to make.
“You’re just dragging this on Nero, just let me cut and you can cry over it later.” With a ragged movement
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 12“What do I have to do first mother?” Robin asked her mother.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 12 by VerySecretAccount
“First, you have to get people on your side. You need to get people you can trust and rely on. Only bring up three people at the maximum. Too many people will attract unwanted attention from your enemies, even your best friend.” Her mother complied.
Robin sighed unhappily, knowing what was going to come next. She was going to have to signal Him. Fucks sake this was going bad. She knew that she could trust Him but he could just take things too bloody well far.
Despite the upcoming events, she still kept her identity carefully concealed beneath the fašade that she had acquired over the many years of her existence. Robin knew that she wouldn’t be exhausted by the prospect of keeping up the mirage but it could help her if she let it go once in a while.
She was walking along the snowy paths when she finally noticed something. A crackling TV was spitting out the news in the pub to her left.
Gentleman"You see, I'm always scared," he said, eyes fixated on his cup of coffee. "I don't like letting people close to me. Even when I was younger, I kept my distance from everyone. Never had a serious relationship till I was twenty, but when it happened, it was unstoppable. I'd always been kind of resigned to the thought that I'd never fall in love, because I was, you know, gay, and that's a taboo in this kind of world."Gentleman by blubbityblub
He ran a hand through his neatly combed hair and continued, still never meeting my eyes. "He's amazing, you know? For once in my life, I didn't feel like I was a freak. I could really let out who I was. I brought him home and my parents loved him, and for once, 'gay' didn't seem like a fucking, I don't know, insult or a fucking label. You're engaged, aren't you?"
I nodded, showing him my wedding ring. His lower jaw tensed.
"You know what it's like, then, to have someone right for you. Someone where you don't care that people are staring. I pretty much gave him everything, yo
The Ballad of Mary EllenMary Ellen's mother won't let her grow up or go away—her grip is strong as death.The Ballad of Mary Ellen by opheliax
My brother Richard first saw Mary Ellen standing half-obscured in an overgrown field. He called out to her, and she turned to look at him. She wore a long white dress with ruffles at her throat and wrists, and she had long black hair loose and tangled from the wind. Her black eyes were sad as they regarded him.
I thought my brother had made up the story to tease me, till one afternoon I found the girl sitting beneath an apple tree, her white skirts tucked beneath her. She looked scarcely spectral, and it was not till I met her black eyes beneath her wide-brimmed hat that I realized this was Richard's mysterious person.
Her nose was covered with light freckles, and her wide mouth curved as she looked at me. "I've been wanting to meet you," she said. She gestured for me to sit near her. "I am not used to meeting people. I was hoping you would see me first and speak to me." There was something m

I'll stop loving you when there is no more monster in the world
I'll stop loving you when classical music is no longer heard of

I'll stop loving you when it stops raining every spring
I'll stop loving you when I stop breathing
I'll stop loving you when my heart stops beating
