Someone was shaking Zaen's shoulder. He stirred.
"Wake up, kid. Seriously. I come home and I find you layin' on the floor like a murder victim."
"It's lying, not laying. The verb lay requires a direct object, whereas the verb lie does not..." Zaen mumbled, rubbing his eyes and squinting. Why had Dark turned on such bright lights?
"Lay, lie, whatever." Dark tugged at Zaen's hands. "Get up. It's way past your bedtime."
Zaen moaned, rolled over, and covered his eyes. The room was far too bright. Why was he on the floor again? Oh, right, he had been reading.
"Fine, lazy kid." Dark knelt and put his arms around Zaen. He was giving him a hug? Zaen didn't think Dark liked to give people hugs. Wait... his feet had just left the ground... Oh, Dark had picked him up.
"The floor," Dark continued as he walked, "is a very bad place to sleep. It's dirty, and you ain't gonna be able to sleep well there. And however long

I turn colorblind.
It turns into a somersault
whenever I gain contact
with your skin,
bare back touching
But I'm not hungry
I just want to
savor each moment your arms
lock into mine,
the romanticism of
the moons in my eyes
and the skies in your words.
behind all those hues
of hazel and your fingers
but I still love you.

Ophelia wrapped her arms around her legs, tucking them even closer to her body, in an attempt to keep warm. Her plain white flannel shirt and trousers were barely enough. Compared to the elaborate gowns that she wore weeks ago, she felt naked. She was sitting on the cold, stone floor, and the candle, its flame unstable and flickering, was her single light source. For three weeks she’d been here; locked up, away from civilization. Her only comfort came from her cat; at least her father had enough sympathy for her to allow the small grey tom to be with her. In a way, Ophelia pitied him… for like her, what had he
BSL Laws and Pit Bull DogsWhat would you do if you were told to get rid of your dog or it will be killed? That is exactly what has been happening to people in cities across the nation. First, it was German Shepherds, next it was Doberman Pinschers, then Rottweilers. Today, it is Pit Bulls and pit bull type dogs. Due to of Breed-Specific Legislation (BSL) laws, cities across the U.S. are banning Pit Bulls and pit bull type dogs. They are being taken from their homes and killed, vicious or not. BSL is not just about public safety, its about targeting breeds of dogs (Beyond the Myth). BSL is not effective because it is only targeting a specific breed ofBSL Laws and Pit Bull Dogs2 days ago in Academic Essays More Like This

We weren't bodies,
We were souls,
Exploring our very existence.
And spirit met spirit,
And skin rushed across skin
As we searched each other's bodies for a deeper love within.
Your veins were a highway,
Your sighs soft and d i s t a n t
As we sped faster into this lustful instant
Twisted and tangled, we were breathing as one

I have no drive anymore.
All I write is sadness
Because it’s the only emotion I really know.
All I write is romance
Because I’ve always wanted love that way.
All I write is tragedies
Because I’ve always felt like a slave.
I don’t want to tell them my biography.
I don’t want to be a depressing author…
I just want to tell everyone a story…

Once upon a time, when our land was not quite as old as it is now, there existed a clock tower.
It had been there since the very beginning, reaching up so high into the sky that on occasion it would be tickled by passing clouds. On its face rustic, heavy hands slowly travelled around its circumference, whilst within it intricate golden cogs ground against one another in an eternal, rotating dance.
With each rotation that the cogs made, the clock ticked a low rumbling tock which travelled through forests and val

Legend of the Ceolman Fleet 1"Look at me!" the U.S.S. Iowa laughed as he stood on his propellers, showing off to his friends in Ceolman Harbor. The U.S.S. Arizona growled in the distance, their flagship, the R.M.S. Titanic, with him. "Take it easy, Arizona." Titanic said, "He's just playing." "He was supposed to help Carpathia with building the new dock." Arizona said, sailing forward, "He needs to be punished." Titanic sighed, he knew Arizonz was right but he just never liked the idea of punishing those for having fun. "Fine." He finally said. With a nod, Arizona sailed over to Iowa and with a growl that would've made a monster run in fear, shouted, "U.S.S.

Broken BooksI feel like I mess things up all the time.Broken Books2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Friendships can blossom,
Or they can fade.
I make them dwindle,
I scare them away.
I guess it was my imagination again,
I thought it would be different,
I had it all planned out.
Maybe it’s the artist in myself,
Or maybe I’m destined to be alone,
At this moment, I don’t really care,
Because I made the wrong choices,
And in the end, it was all my fault.
So this goes out to myself,
To stop messing things up,
Because I have no one to blame but myself.
It was perfect at first,
Just another book unturned,
And I finished it too quickly,
Not taking the delicate time,
It takes to read a pie
Chapter 2 Again, Keegan woke with a start. This time from a dream he couldn’t remember, but frightening nonetheless. His shirt was soaked with sweat which he had to peel from his chest. Slowly he turned so his legs hung off the side of the bed. He went to change into a plain white t-shirt and another pair of khaki shorts, along with his signature vintage converse.Chapter 225 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
