Happy Father's DayI'll never tell you he was a monster
He was just a man
Who could fault him for that
He was never made to love
And he was never made to live long
Existing as an oppositional force
Pouring white salt on the wounds
And kicking dust in the eyes
Roaming late at night
And twisting in and out of memories
An apparition of a godlike figure
The man behind the curtain
Pulling levers to navigate childhood nightmares
Getting sucked under trains and leaving everything behind
Mothers, daughters, friends
Your absence is relief and pain in one breath
Happy Father's Day
LETTING GOThere's a lot of pain being wrapped up in you
It stings deep and boils inside my chest
I remember you in those moments before sleep
Dreaming there would be better days
And that those days would be full of you
Yours eyes said you dreamed the same
even if your smoky words wouldn't admit it
That closeness we shared, nose to nose
Isn't an everyday sort of thing
I won't say I'm obsessed, distressed
But I will say that I kinda loved you
And so I'll let you go
I WANT TO HELP MY BABYPurple and pink bows hanging on my lymph nodes
I try to blow my nose
And all that comes out are freshly ironed clothes
Hazy daisies singing out the maybe's
Listening to the couch sing hymns about Tracy
Yes I got a fast car
So get us out of here
You said you had a plan, but first you gotta
Deal with your old man.
You're drinking for two
And you've got nothing to lose
Nothing to prove
Shapes of my face show how long I'll live-ia
According to an old lady from Bolivia
Turn me around and take me down town
I'll teach you some more trivia
Just get me some more tea
THE SEAWe can twist in the sea
Salt and foam mixing in our fears
The sun licking off our tears
Just you and me
Sailing for hours forever
Building an empire of awkward glances
Some quiet romances
Or I could find you on the pier
Counting down the years
When you and I first met
In your arms
Warming my bones
This is my home
Memories as precious as a pearl
Your heartbeat the waves crashing
Give me a distance smile
Hand in mine and so many things to say
My brain giving way
I forget, fragments of moments I wanted gone
I'll weave them into a song
And if you put your ear to the shell
You can hear it
The SquidThere was once this giant squid that lived in an old lady's aquarium for four years. He was dead inside because he had dreamed of becoming an actor at the age of 3. He was four then and felt like since he missed his chance, he'd never act again. He'd swim around and cry all day and night and eat snails straight from the garden because he had really long tentacles.
LISTEN TO THIS, after he ate a bunch of the snails, the old lady had had enough of the carnage since she was a vegetarian and only ate grass. She threw the squid out and told him to get a job by Monday or she wouldn't take him back. Well, what was he supposed to do? So he did the only thing a squid can do in a tight pickle. He ate her alive. That is just nature. He ate her whole, too, with no breaks. He had had enough also. The only thing he didn't eat were her shining pearls her grand-nephew had gotten her for her two-hundred and thirty-fourth birthday.
The squid was a monster but he wasn't a monster. Eating some
TREASUREI am golden starlight trapped under the skin
Hovering around the corners of your eyes
Seen the sun shimmering by and by
Twisting around your spine
I love the sound
Tinkling shining flying
Whispers and laughter
Dusting the outsides
And sinking into
Deeper and darker
With visions of treasures
Hidden and curling like smoke
ZIONHeading toward Zion I saw a man
Scraggly and old
An apparition of strength
A ghost of his youth
He called me over to the side of the road
His breath smelled like honey and mold
Toothless grin, he said he had a cure
For dust covered lungs and fissured skulls
For hopeless dreams and hearts caked in doubt
I didn't believe the airy way he talked
Every word a whisper, and every syllable dark
But I listened because I was headed toward Zion
Toward home and toward promise
He gave me three wishes trapped in three goats
I had to lead them to pasture he said
So that they would grow
I took the task gladly, seeing as I was a shepherd
For his own flock
He was tired then and died then
I covered him in silk and put stones on his eyes
So that in case he did rise
He wouldn't see he wasn't there
I led the goats behind me
On back toward Zion
They could pasture there
And give me my three wishes
When they were ready of course
These things take time
ODE TO BREADMy dearest bread
Thou art my life
Without thee a tear I shed
And I surely live in strife
Thou art the wind beneath mine wings
Thou art the reason the caged bird sings
Soft edges and brown crust
For thee is truly whom I lust
And wouldst the holy firmament crack
If it was thee I did lack?
It is thee that keeps me whole
It is thee that I lay in my boot!
Bread! Thou art sweetest in a roll!
My love for thee, finest bread
Will stay with me until I am dead
Detective Le Cactus: IIDetective Le Cactus: II
There was an eerie feeling to the abandoned factory as Le Cactus pulled up in the cruiser, followed by the Grape squad in their wagon that was being pulled by Spinach.
Le Cactus looked over his sunglasses at the place, taking in the tulip-py aroma. "Let's do this " he whispered to no one in particular unless there was a ghost in the car and then it was to the ghost but since ghosts are usually invisible I'll say to no one in particular.
With the cruiser parked, Le Cactus slowly made his way toward the factory, followed by the Grape squad with weapons drawn as well. Spinach stayed by the cruiser in case back up was needed he could call for help on his plant cellphone.
Scanning the area, there was nothing seen but instead heard. Le Cactus heard a cruel laugh erupt from inside. Motioning for the Grape squad to hold position, Le Cactus crept closer, pressing himself against the wall by the opening.
"That dumb broad! Haha! The look on her face was pr
Run!! (Levi x reader Modern AU)
I was running. Like, literally running for my life. My whole entire life was in danger. Why? Let’s just say I accidentally- wait no…ehem, let me rephrase that; I purposely created a giant mess in the apartment of the ‘clean freak’, otherwise known as Levi.
Yep. The one and only clean freak that can seriously kill you with only his intimidating eyes, Levi Ackerman.
I mean, what’s so wrong about having fun? Obviously everything when it comes to Levi. It’s like having fun around him is taboo. If you do one thing that really bothers him, for example, move just one pencil out of place or attempt to throw one piece of paper into the bin and miss horribly, he will kick ass all the way to, like, freaking China!
His OCD really irritates me at some times. It makes me wonder how I even became his girlfriend. I don’t think his obsessiveness of cleaning and my obsessiveness of clumsiness work that well together.
Anyways, where was I? Ah, yeah. I was running
Dreams And Nightmares Ch 2 (Shadow!Italy X Reader)
Dreams And Nightmares Chp. 2
(ShadowItaly X Reader)
I opened my eyes to see I was in a meadow. I rolled my head on what seemed to be bark from a tree. Flowers were scattered all across the field and small hills. Fairies dance away in this distance, as glitter filled my shocked (e/c) eyes. I try to pick myself up, still mesmerized by the things I was seeing, and lean on the tree. I look over from the tree to see a crystal blue lake.
"What is this place..." I mumbled to myself,"Why do I feel this isn't really real," I mumbled. Close my eyes and think for a moment. I couldn't remember how I got here, almost like the same with the dream I had. Wait! I had a dream like this, didn't I? Why do I feel like I'm missing things about it than? I growled in frustration, but stopped when I felt a presence behind me.
"(Y/n), I'm glad your awake," said a wicked voice behind me. I slowly turn around revealing a man, who seemed to be half human, and half shadow. My eyes widen in fea
Ice bucket challenge (Zachary QuintoXSister!Reader
Cold is all you felt after your older brother poured a bucket of ice cold water over your head for the ALS ice bucket challenge. You let out a shriek when you felt ice down your top and stood up to get it out. Zachary went over to the camera and looked at you sheepishly.
"I forgot to hit record" He said making you glare at him.
"Idiot" You replied ringing out your hair.
"I'll go get more ice" Zachary chuckled before going back into his house with the large bucket. Glaring after him you went in and got another pair of clothes on before going back out to wait. When he came back out he rolled his eyes seeing you changed.
"Why change you're just gonna get wet again?" He asked.
"I dont want to freeze so hurry up and hit record this time" You replied sitting back down on the wet chair. He nodded and pressed the record button before going behind you again.
"Hopefully this is recording and I wont have to do this again. I'd like to thank Hayden Panettiere for the nomination I accept the challen
Duplica's Tuff DemonstrationDuplica is a Pokémon trainer and an impressionist. She could imitate any Pokémon trainer and even some Pokémon! Not surprisingly, her 2 Pokémon are both Dittos, which have the ability to transform into any other Pokémon. Though the down side to this is that the face remains the same. But, after some hard training, her Dittos finally learn to change their faces as well. Crowds of people ask for her and the Dittos to change what they want. However, on one day, Duplica gets a little more than she bargained for on 1 transformation.
Duplica was taking her usual lunch break with her Pokémon.
Duplica: *sighs with exhaustion* "Man, changing appearances wears you out."
Both Ditto nodded in agreement.
Duplica: *smiles* "But as long as the people are happy, that's all that matters. Right, guys?"
The Dittos smiled and hugged her.
Duplica: "No matter what happens, we'll always find a way to please the crowd."
When they finished their break, the trio went back to work.
Set Up (David AndersXReader)
It was a bright sunny day and you were at the beach with your best friend Leah (If your name is Leah pick another name) chilling on a towel under a large umbrella (dunno if they have an official name). Looking around you saw your friend scoping out guys still trying to find you a boyfriend.
"Leah can you stop trying to hook me up with a guy?" You asked.
"No! Its been over a year since (ex's name) broke up with you and you need to get back out there" Leah shook her head. You rolled your eyes at her and adjusted your sunglasses before you heard her gasp. Looking over you saw her grinning and instantly knew she was planning something.
"Lets go swim" She said dragging you to stand up.
"Leaaaaaaah" You whined letting her drag you towards the ocean. Leah just smirked and before you reached the ocean she pushed you into a guy who had been pushed towards you by his friend ending up with both of you on the sand with you on top.
"Oh god I'm so sorry" The man apologized.
"No I'm sorry must'

Mammoth Mutt's exploration inflationMammoth Mutt was just roaming around with crew of the Dog Stars' ship, wanting to see how the universe was created, and also she wanted to explore unexplored parts of the universe and live to tell the tale.
She didn't want to be disobedient to herself or her fellow comrades, but she wanted to do what she wanted to. She then went out with her spacesuit and helmet. Mammoth Mutt used the ship as a beacon in case she's had enough. She started to drift outwards toward a galaxy and began to inflate herself bigger and bigger.
Mammoth Mutt: Definitely worth exploring!
Mammoth Mutt kept expanding as she is the size of a planet and still getting bigger. She is knowing that her body is a universe that is created by a rush of air rather than a Big Bang. Enjoying it, she is rapidly getting bigger and bigger. She is now the size of a galaxy, but she's just getting started. She really expanded tons and tons of air, and after a considerable amount of time, Mammoth Mutt is the size of a universe.
Big Blimp Battle: Hema VS PepperThe two girls walked out to the fields when they had nothing important to do today. Pepper is the cheerful and spunky red-headed knight and loves spicy foods but hates water. Hema is the Princess with a motherly nature and is sometimes bossy but loveable.
Today they decided to see who can be the biggest blimp all around Eclian. Pepper held up the bottle and shook it to hear the clinking of the air pills inside.
"I'm gonna be the biggest knight balloon!" Pepper smiled.
"Oh really?" Hema said. "The Princess has a higher rank than a knight. Gimme one of those air pills."
Pepper tossed Hema one pill and took one herself. Both the girls took the air pills and stood quietly.
"Anytime now," Hema said to pace up her body for it to get on with expanding her.
When the pills kicked in, their bodies began to start swelling up with them being filled with air. They began to inflate from the effects of the air pills and grew a lot bigger that their feet began to lift off from the ground and up into t
Kathaly's LabSummer break was almost over and I've started to prepare myself for the fall semester at college. I've already gotten the books I'll need for my classes, set my alarm clock, and I've started to go to bed at an earlier time. But despite these preparations, I still feel a little nervous of what I'm going to experience.
Me: *sighs* "I hope these classes will have the same feeling when I had my first fall and spring semester."
Just then, my brother opened my door.
Tim: *opens door* "Hey, bro."
Tim: "What's up?"
Me: "Just a little nervous about college."
Tim: "Bob, it's going to be alright. Just be glad you don't have a night class this semester."
Me: "Yeah. That way when I get home, I won't have to worry about going through updates on my laptop to see what has happened during my class at a really fast pace before going to bed."
Tim: *chuckles* "True. Also, be glad it's not like the summer s
Dear Adventurer or To Skyrim with LoveDear Adventurer,
If you are reading this then that means you are alive unless you are a ghost and I assume that you are not unlike me in the ways of adventuring and taking spoils for yourself. You have come upon me at a most indecent time. For I am dead, or I believe I am by the time anyone reaches me. If you can save me, though, that would be most helpful to me. There is a lot of blood.
Anyhow, I am writing this to warn you of the trials ahead in this horrible dungeon. I understand that there is something of great value at the end but the path there will not be an easy one. For I know this myself as I tried to reach the end myself but then decided against it and tried to turn back.
That was my undoing or is my undoing. I'm not dead yet. Or am I? Well, if I am indecent when you arrive, will you at least make me presentable? I don't mean touch up my war paint or anything but you could wipe my mouth of any blood or vomit? I would greatly appreciate such a notion of camaraderie.
