Literature
Down with the Ship
I've been docked at port far too long,
Watched you fall for every siren's song.
I'm jumping ship, mutineering to cut the mooring lines;
Tie me up and toss me overboard before I change my mind.
Let's weigh anchor; this ship has sailed.
I'm forsaking the Great White Whale.
I watched you drown the Titanic,
But I won't go down with this friendship.
The horizon bleeds red sunrise;
Tempests rage behind monsoon eyes.
There are monsters of my own design waiting to drag me beneath;
I could go two thousand leagues if only you would go with me.
Let's weigh anchor; this ship has sailed.
I'm forsaking the Great White Whale.
I watched you drown the Titanic,
But I won't go down with this friendship.
The seas are rough and this shanghai love isn't good enough.
The seas are rough and this shanghai love isn't good enough.
Let's weigh anchor; this ship has sailed.
I'm forsaking the Great White Whale.
I watched you drown the Titanic,
But I won't go down with this friendship.

Love Relentless
Secret high hopes, unsent love notes;
Sex dreams, red strings – it means nothing.
Hits and misses, empty kisses;
Late-night phone calls – I took them all.
I waited year after year for you to come to your senses;
I wasted tear after tear, and yet this love is relentless.  
Hard days, late nights; long talks, play fights.
Cuts healed, lines crossed; thirst quenched, sleep lost.
Absence, distance – panic-stricken.
Best friends, soul mates; too little, too late.
I waited year after year for you to come to your senses;
I wasted tear after tear, and yet this love is relentless.
I'm not wasting my candles wishing for you this December:
I'll save my breath this winter.
I waited year after year for you to come to your senses;
I wasted tear after tear, and yet this love is relentless.

Steadfast Boy Soldier
I'm over for a few hours: get my fix and use his shower –
Nothing new, no this is normal – nothing's wrong.
While I admit it's a habit, I wouldn't say I'm an addict –
I still function in the morning, once I'm gone.
Why the hell am I still by his side
When I could get my hands on any guy?
I swear that this is the last time.
I can't keep playing with this toy if he becomes a real boy;
He still lingers inside my dreams when he's not between my knees.
I keep trying to play pretend, but he's not made out of tin –
Where does this story end?
He stalemates me when I'm open; still, these checkmates go unspoken.
I've been losing every round and damn, I'm sore.
I treat his heart like a doll house, thinking someday I'll throw it out –
Outgrow it just like all those who came before.
What's he gonna' give me that I can't buy?
His smile sure as hell isn't worth the price
That I'll pay if I don't say goodbye.
I can't keep playing with this toy if he becomes a real boy;
He stil

Literature
True Love: Deconstruction
Vanya was a complicated man. Alaina often felt that she knew no less than six versions of him, and it was this very quirk that so endeared him to her. Though cold, he was prone to a fiery temper, usually giving over to fits of blind, uncompromised rage; on the other hand, he was also a gentle soul, polite and considerate – often to a fault. He was ambitious and hardworking, usually overextending himself well into the evenings with his work at the graduate school, and yet, he never failed to leave his professional baggage where it belonged: at the door of his office with the singular, lonely window. In bed, he was generous and thoughtful, always putting Alaina's needs well ahead of his own – an astounding feat for a man who came home flustered, exhausted, and otherwise belligerent. He was fastidious and meticulous...and yet all at once a slob, leaving his neat and orderly piles of debris in trails that crisscrossed throughout the apartment.
At present, he was sitting, ramrod s

True Love: Volatile
"Wow," she gasped, touching the blood that warmed her lip, "you literally beat it into me."
He smirked, manic; yet his mania was his sincerest form of serenity. "You don't make it easy," he teased, "proving a point." He pulled her up from the floor, holding her face between his palms, a vice. The chaos in his eyes was constantly moving, unreadable. He leaned in, pressing his lips to her ear and hissing, "I'll kiss and make it better." True to his word, he covered her bruised temple with his mouth, gently, lovingly. He held her at arms length then, examining her with all the clinical scrutiny of a doctor. "Irresistible," he pronounced.
It figures, she thought. But resistance was futile, and unnecessary besides. Even as her own blood trickled over her chin, staining his shirt, she was forgiving him. No...forgiveness...it didn't fit. There's nothing to forgive, she knew. This...this is what I love about him. Or, maybe it was what came after. She loved his whipl

How long will you wait? Until I start to dissipate
Beyond the window panes? No one will recognize my face.
Remorse is always knocking on my front door.
Please don't waste my time with your desperation.
To all my sweethearts: I'm still in misery.
To all my family: don't pretend you miss me.
Inside my head, it's all asymmetry;
I'm too exhausted to navigate this travesty.
I've just come undone, my colors faded from the sun.
I fell in love once, before I knew what it was.
Old scars still leave stains all over my arms.
Please don't waste my time with your explanations.
To all my sweethearts: I'm still in misery.
To all my family: don't pretend you miss me.
Inside my head, it's all asymmetry;
I'm too exhausted to navigate this travesty.
Please don't waste my time with your desperation,
And I won't waste your mind with my revelations.
To all my sweethearts: I'm still in misery.
To all my family: don't pretend you miss me.
Inside my head, it's all asymmetry;

Heaven, This Hypocrite Town
I'm the girl with the long, black hair driving in a stolen car;
You know I'll never care as long as I'm the brightest star.
I've rejected every suitor sent by God;
Every opportunity has pros and cons.
I'm so sick of this hypocrite town, so I'm hell-bent on running it down.
In this place called Heaven where I don't belong,
Angels condemn my residence, 'cause I'm in the wrong.
I'm the girl who's earned no wings -- I don't have the capacity;
God doesn't pull my strings -- he lets my past catch up with me.
When He made me, He replaced my heart with coal;
So it's no surprise my love and hate burn cold.
I'm so sick of this hypocrite town, so I'm hell-bent on running it down.
In this place called Heaven where I don't belong,
Angels condemn my residence, 'cause I'm in the wrong.
I've rejected every suitor sent by God;
Every opportunity has pros and cons.
When He made me, God replaced my blood with oil;
So it's no surprise that I turned out so spoiled.
I'm so sick of this hypocrite town, so I'm

All I Ask
Clack, clack, clack...the sound bores through my skull like a drill. Her four-inch stilettos on the sidewalk outside. I can pick it out of even the most muddled cocktail of city noise. The sunshine wafts in on a light spring breeze; pages of my term report shuffle aimlessly around before settling like feathers on the floor. I'm bent over double, picking them up, frantic when the clacking stops just beyond my door. The only thing separating me from her.
The door opens. I'm on my knees, papers clutched to my bare chest like the last fibers of my life. It is finals week. Her smile permeates my skin though, and it fills the archway. "Hey, stranger."
It takes a moment to find my breath. It's hitched somewhere up in my chest. "Hi." I stand slowly, like a deer in the presence of a loaded gun. "You're early." Wow. Probably not what she wants to hear.
But she shrugs, taking no offense. "I woke up early. I couldn't wait for the eleven o' clock bus." She picks up a black tee shirt -- still

My Headcanon for Prussia
Headcanon: Prussia
    Okay, so it will be easier if I start at the beginning and work forward. This is just my opinion, if you don't like it or have a differing view please don't chew me out I am simply putting out there how I view the character, nothing more.
Early Childhood
   It is debated as to how and when Prussia (Gilbert) came about, when was he born, what was there before him, some people have hypothesized that he killed Old Prussia and took his (or her) place. Personally I disagree; I believe Gilbert (I will refer to him using his human name from here, as he was not always called Prussia.) would be the child of Germania and a Baltic, possibly the ancestor of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia too; it would be an ancient Balt nation. From here he became the Baltic state of Old Prussia, this would be before he was a knight and he would have been only a small child, probably a peasant. I believe this is where Prussia would have had to have started o

Don't get terribly excited. It's not that great. It's just that I've begun rewriting the book "Twilight" -- a project I think everyone and their grandmano has attempted since the thing was published. But I needed a junk project because writer's block is kicking my ass to China and back and I need something to do. Also, my rewrite will be way better than all the other rewrites: tru fax.

Anyway, I'll be posting it in its own special folder in my gallery and on Livejournal because I'm a show-off and like to pretend you people are actually interested in what I do.

Let me make one thing clear, however. I actually like "Twilight" even though it's trash. The concept in and of itself is pretty cool and the plot (up until "Breaking Dawn") was relatively sound, if not chock full of holes; in Meyer's later work, I can even see potential for good writing. I think "Twilight" just got picked up too early and had really terrible editors. So in no way am I bashing the series by doing this. I do poke fun, but never in bad humor (or at least not bad humor for me).

Anyway, this has been a post.
