Of Lies and ThievesYou didn't think your life could change in just one night did you? You didn't think they could tear down the invisible walls that your parents put up around you and protected you from the outside world. You thought you were so observant with your cat like vision and your analytical mind; yet you were so ignorant about the world you lived in. You dismissed all the hints that were thrown your way and Angus thought you were silly for not seeing but you said it was him who was silly. And yet you still didn't see it coming, did you?Of Lies and Thieves by Wolfsbane66
"And he swung down and snatched his arrow and the leather pouch and ran off into the woods with little John." You are six-and-a-half and it's the night after your 5th successful theft, and you had just too much adrenaline to sleep. So your mother tucked you into bed and you begged her to read you a story.
Tonight it's Robin Hood and it makes you think of the nagging question that's been on your mind since your 3rd con, the one to the Lourve.
Darling, Don't You DareTo the girl who skips dinner,Darling, Don't You Dare by MikkiMarie
Because her reflection hurts more than
To the boy who wears sweatshirts
On hot summer days,
Because he doesn’t want his mother to cry over his
To the boy who weeps uncontrollably
Until he falls asleep,
Because it’s the only way to escape into his
To the girl who spends her days in her bedroom,
Because the dark is more peaceful than her
To the child who gets angry,
Because no one understands.
To the teens who self-harm,
To the ones in recovery,
To the ones that just can’t do it anymore…
For the girl who skips meals
And the boy who wears sweatshirts,
For the boy who cries,
The girl who hides,
And the ones who just can’t do it anymore.
You’ve come this far.
Don’t you dare give up on it, now.
