Dear WorldWorld, I wish to be at ease with myself
World, soothe my tender mind-I wish to be at ease with myself.
Help me look past the mistakes that caused a bruise on the fruit that is my soul. I know not of a childhood world, but if you would be so kind, let me embrace my naivete.
World I find myself lost in the thought of who I am. No longer a child I lack that somebody telling me who and what I will become; I am an adult now.
Help me find myself.
Help me look past the mocking mirror of self-righteousness and to lean into the reflection of that familiar stranger and to tell her I love her; she needs to know how beloved she is. She needs someone to tell her that for every rainy day and frizzy hair mess: there is the arising sun and a scrunchie close by.
Help me look down below at the snarling waves of the future ahead, to close my eyes and take a leap off of the cliff I have built up to stop myself from ever trying.
Help me rid my restless resistance to be confident.
World I know I ask so much
Blackbird I remember when I first saw her; it was at an opening for a new avian science museum. After they cut the velvet ribbon they ushered every one in to show off their prized exhibit. We were hurried along into a big open room with one massive object covered in a purple tarp, stitched up in some areas with black thread. I wanted to leave and go home but at the same time I was curious and as the announcer whispered that the creature was unusually rare and that flash photography was allowed, that surprised me. I pushed to the front, people grumbling about rude teenage boys, I ignored it and hit the tip of my converse on the ground. The announcer closed up his speech and stepped aside with his arm out, the purple tarp raised slowly revealing a heap of what looked like to be twine and branches, people smashed up against the cage, the guards whistling at anyone getting to close then giving up and letting people grab the bars a
Guess What?It was when the first grumble of thunder was heard in the sky, when she saw that forlorn look in his eye.
"What's wrong?" she asked, staring at him from his position in the deflating raft. Small ripples breaking through the glassy water as tiny spears of rain pierced through the surface of the pool. He blinked and lifted a smile to her,
"Nothing." He opened his eyes wider to make himself seem brighter. She moved her lips to one side of her face and released her towel letting it fall to her ankles. He furrowed his brows at her and opened his mouth to ask her what she was doing but was interrupted by a splash as she dove in. He shielded himself from the force of the splash and looked down at where she had broken the surface. He could only make out a fuzzy figure and the bright color of her swimsuit amongst the ripples of the increasing rain. Her head popped up and she folded her arms on one side of his raft and looked at him again.
"You sure babe?" she asked again, he just shrugged and n
KittenLuna looked outside for the umpteenth time, worried. Pe2irce said that he would be here at five, which was an hour ago! Luna glanced nervously at her apartment and started straightening the pillows on the furniture and the pictures on the walls of Luna and her family. She had already baked cupcakes, cleaned her room and straightened every bit of furniture in sight. The wind outside howled and lightning struck; Luna jumped and looked out the window at the pouring rain and hail. She whined and placed a fisted hand on her chest,
"Oh Pe2irce, where are you?" she mumbled and sighed plopping down on her couch. I quiet knock on the door made Luna jump, she gasped and grinned widely,
"Pe2irce!" she advanced at the door and screeched to a halt, exhaled and closed her eyes. Now that she was calm she opened the door and smiled at Pe2irce. Luna then gasped,
"Pe2irce your soaking wet! Get in, get in!" Luna pushed him out of the hallway and into her apartment and over to the kitchen. Pe2irce chuckle
MemoriesTch, observe my surroundings more, pay attention to detail and maybe you can become a better artist bleh bleh bleh. I smacked my hand over the small button and pushed it down. The little cars and sunflower yellow school buses seemed to fly through the streets as angry drivers honked their horns and would flip each other off behind the safety of their darkly tinted windshields. I scuffed my shoe on the cracked concrete and fished out a small pebble from one of the gashes. I glared down at the pebble and kicked it at the flying cars hoping to damage one of their wings. No such luck for me, instead the pebble rolled over to the bottom of an old Victorian stairwell. I followed the stairs up to a small pair of feet in shiny black dress shoes with a small strap across the top of the feet and golden buckles. Two pale peach legs shot out of the shoes and bent at the knees where a spiral sketch pad was balanced on the small lap of a little girl. She had her head tilted slightly and one hand clu
Dr. Seuss"Hey Pe2irce heads up!" I turned around and caught the shoe that was thrown at me. I saw one of the preppy girl's from my school run at me yelling about the yellow strapped wedge I held in my hand. I grinned at her and held the shoe above my head enjoying watching her jump up and down for it.
"Pe2irce give it back!" I shook my head and tried to scope out the slicked back silver hair of my friend Hyde,
"Hey Hyde!" he didn't hear me so I yelled again, "Hey Hyde!" he still didn't hear me, frustrated I scowled and stuck my tongue out at him.
"Pe2irce over here!" I looked to see Dani waving his arms around, I jumped up and threw the shoe at him at hard as I could. The girl punched my shoulder and ran after Dani, I laughed,
"Go Dani go!" Dani ran around the girl and would dangle the shoe to taunt her. I smirked at Dani and the girl's running forms and looked back at where Dani was previously standing. I cocked my brow; there was a girl in a strapless white sundress with navy blue flowers on
Caught (Teacher!Levi x Reader) 700 Words Challenge
Levi wasn't sure how it happened, only that it did happen, and even that he was barely sure of anymore.
Maybe it was because you two never did get caught. Could some masochistic, voyeuristic part of him wanted the secret to spill?
His thoughts drifted lazily as he watched a pencil roll to the edge of his desk and pause, teasing him, making him ache for the simple noise of it hitting the ground.
That's what it would be labeled as, if he were to see any qualified doctor or physiologist.
"College professor, huh. Got any hot students? Have a little fun with them?" A companion had queried just last weekend.
She wasn't hot. She was beautiful.
There was nothing pornographic; fetish satisfaction about it, either. Not like you saw in pornos, the aging teacher lifting his plastic blonde student up onto a desk or a
(America x Reader) - Dieting
"No, please don't!"
"Alfred, we've discussed this already..."
"No!! Not my french fries!"
"Alfred, give that back!"
"(Naaaaaaaame), come onnnn!!"
"No, hand them over!"
"Alfred F. Jones!!"
You tackled your boyfriend to the ground in attempt to swipe the french fries he was currently stuffing in his mouth from him. He was a big guy, and for a small girl like you, even that was an accomplishment.
"Alfred, I am not going to ask again! Hand them over!!" You say sternly as you try to get the fries. Alfred just makes a noise of restraint and shakes his head.
"Noooooo!!! Don't do this to me, (Name!!!) I thought you loved me!!" The American whined and you finally managed to wrench the food from his hand.
"I do, that's WHY I'm dong this!" You say, standing up and brushing strands of your (h/c) hair out of your eyes. You take the greasy fast-food over to the trash and throw it away, ignoring Alfred's dramatic fake sobs. "Oh, don't be a baby..."

(England x Reader) - Coffee Shop
It was a rainy day in London, per the usual, but you weren't complaining. You currently sat in a Starbucks shop, in the farthest corner might you add, with your favorite novel in your hands. You weren't really one for drinking coffee, but you came for the atmosphere. You couldn't explain it, but apparently the coffee shop provided excellent mood and ambiance for a good book.
But the atmosphere wasn't the only thing you came for.
There was a really, really, REALLY cute guy who worked there. He was tall and thin, with shaggy blonde hair and stunning green eyes. His eyebrows were a bit over-sized, but you thought that was adorable. His name was Arthur, if you remember correctly, Arthur Kirkland. Rumors spread about him rather quickly, some saying he was the personification of England itself (but like you were going to believe that!). He worked every Friday, so when you had the time, you would visit the Starbucks and sit in the corner everyday, pretending to read while secretly staring at
All I Need Is You - Ghost!Levi x Depressed!Reader
She woke up with a new sense that day. Like the thing that they call hope or happiness. Yep, that was another of those happy days that (f/n) counted with the fingers of her hands. She sighed, looking at the ceiling. The day was cloudy, and the faints rays of sunshine iluminated the dark room of the girl. She saw the clock that was at her left:
"But I want to be outside..." She muttered, sighing again with a smile. Then, with a little laugh, she started to wash herself in the bathroom and dress with a black t-shirt, with jeans and Converses.
"Mom, mom..." She tried to wake up her mom, but she was faintly asleep. (f/n) sighed and wrote a note to her with her bag ready.
Mommy, I'll be in the theater with Petra and the others .w.
Love ya, (f/n)
P.D.: I want a cookie :3
"Okay, that was weird, but I wrote it with pen, so..." Well, but to (f/n) write that things m
Strangely Familiar [Neko!Levi X Reader] Drabble Scratch, scratch
'Hanji better keep it down. This paperwork isn't going to do itself. Though I wish it would.' You thought, annoyed by how the scientist decides to blow off her work to do those insane experiments of hers.
You dropped your pen in the midst of writing, not caring that it rolled off your desk and onto the floor. You stood up slowly, taking cautious steps towards the door. After staring at the doorknob for a good ten seconds, you sighed and opened the door. You examined both ends of the hallway, but no one was there.
"Hello?" You called out, but the only response was the echo of your voice. That, and a small, quiet meow. You glanced down at the floor and stared at...
This particular feline was black all over, except for his front two paws and his neck and chest area. Funny, it's almost like this cat was wearing gloves and... a cravat... T
Amor a tus espaldas (Sonamy) Capitulo 47Maratón 5/5
•Algunos segundos pasaron y no tenía respuesta, sabía que no estaba lista pero quería fingir que sí y engañarse a si misma, aunque, ¿sería eso posible? La mirada se quedo fija en la puerta del salón, sabía que ni bien atravesará ese pedazo de madera empezaría su martirio, lo que no sabía era si estaba lista para soportarlo o si saldría corriendo ante el mínimo flaqueo de sus nervios de acero, miro su mano entrelazada con la del chico y miro de nuevo al salón, en esos segundos, Shadow repitió su pregunta: “¿Estás lista?” “Sí, pero para apretar el botón de autodestrucción más cercano” Pensó, pero solo se limito a decir: “Sí, vamos” cuando sabía bien que sus piernas temblarían y sus lágrimas amenazarían con salir cuando viera a Sonic con Sally pero debía intentarlo, esto durará alg
Water Bed (Rinharu)I’d never really thought about it before, but i figured that in some way shape or form this situation ought to have been raised before. I mean, come on, this was Haru we were talking about, and the fact that he was willing to strip down in public more often than not to try and squeeze into a fish tank (not that i was complaining) well… well this should have been expected.
We were walking through one of those larger malls; the kind with two stories and more stores than anyone working in them could count. Young women spraying perfume around every corner, old men trying to read your cards and scare you because somehow he knew you future. We avoided both with exuberance, and ended up drifting along by a mattress store.
That was when Haru saw it-- the sign that would bring his whole world to a halt if only for a moment. He literally shoved me aside to get a closer look--to make sure he was seeing it right.
“Water bed.” He read, ignoring my scowl as i followed behind.

Armin Arlert x reader One-Shot
You were standing outside on the porch. Your arms were resting on the wooden railing as you stared up at the evening sky. The sun was setting and the sky was a beautiful pinkish color. You yearned to go beyond the walls and see what the rest of the world was like. Was it as breathtaking as the sky?
You were broken out of your thoughts when you heard light footsteps coming towards you. "Hey [name], what are you doing out here?" It was Armin. You didn't answer him you just kept looking at the sky. Begininng to worry, Armin walked over and stood next to you. He was obviously concerned but he didn't say anything. He waited until you were ready to tell him.
"Hey Armin...what do you think it's like. Ya know, outside of the walls. What do you think is out there?" You said in a solf voice. Armin was caught off gaurd by your question but he smiled and turned his gaze to the sky aswell. "Far beyond these walls there's flaming water, land made of ice, and fields of sand spread wide..."
Library TeaseShe brushed her hands over the rough spines of her favorite hardback books. She plucked one out and opened it, flipped a couple of pages and read a few. The lights flickered and the thunder growled, she and the other few people that populated the library looked up at the ceiling. A young man looked at the girl through a bookcase, she turned around and he ducked down. She smiled, laughed lightly while slowly walking over to the bookshelf. She closed the book in her hand and crouched down so she was face to face with the boy.
"Well if it isn't Pe2irce X Gunner, the bad boy of Halcyon High. Now what are you doing here? Spying on me?" Pe2irce grunted,
"Please, why would I, Pe2irce X Gunner, spend the non school half of my Friday in an old run down library spying on Luna Love Elleron, the daydreamer of Halcyon High?" Luna glared at him and huffed then stood back up and shoved the book back in its place on the rickety shelf and walked away. Pe2irce smirked and breathed out a smug laugh. Luna
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Transformers: We Came in WarTransformers: We Came in War
Setting: Sometime during the Bay films
Characters: Optimus Prime
We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
