Did you forget our promise?
"I'm sorry I'm late",
Is still better than "I'm not coming".
Whenever I tell you that I love you,
You'd just shrug it off, laughing.
I told you I'd give anything to be with you,
You told me you're not worth my life.
While you were sleeping,
I sneaked into your bedroom,
Just to see you when you are vulnerable,
And be there to protect you.
And yet I am,
Waiting for a miracle that will never happen,
For I know that you're not around anymore.
But everyday, I still stand and wait,
Hoping that someday,
That familiar shadow will appear at the other end of the street.

In another town
In another time
I guess this wasn't meant to be
We'll have to
I guess I
Just need this one more time
Where did we fall
What did we mark as wrong
Riding away from this
I need this one more time
We'll be all right
But I guess
I need this one more time
Before we say goodbye
Light My WayI'll take your hand, and embark...Light My Way1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Into your light, out of my dark.
You shine so very brightly...
I'll hold your hand tightly.
I don't want to lose my grip...
As I venture on this trip.
It's easy to go with you...
To places, unknown and new.
Open up your world to me...
I enter into it, gladly.
There's nowhere I wouldn't go.
Beckon me and I'll follow.
You're the sun, in my blue sky.
I don't even question why.
You're the sunlight I behold.
For you, my petals do unfold.
I'm a flower, in full bloom...
Since you entered, into my room.

We build a foundation of fire
Old embers, new fuel
We place lip upon lip
To imprint on each other
Kindling our spark
To burn all we’ve never been
(During this process, our past is not conserved)
Through mist or rain
Enlightens all lost souls
Dancing around us
Sparks grow into flames
We’ve given life
To a frozen world
And ignite ahead
Lip upon lip
A foundation of fire

When will you find a place to rest?
A round oak tree
Shading with strong, gentle limbs
Towers over you
For a time
The darkness has grown too cold.
The silence much to loud.
Perhaps the chattering chickadee
With his wonderfully strange faces
And gently hidden smile
The sun that he loves to lay in
The trees he always plays in?
The way he always tries his hardest, no matter how tired he gets?
Perhaps he has captured my heart as of yet?
The one who craves gentleness
They never spew lies
They both say what's on their mind
But the tree... The tree has grown up
His thoughts among the stars.
And though the stars to are cold,
An icy heart cannot hope
To compete with their glow
There is a fire in that heart
Glaciated by years of neglect
Years of silence
Years of regret
It had only just started to melt,
When winter came again
And so, like a songbird,
the icy heart flew.
Is it that my heart is too cold to feel,

En su patria, la mar
Con un interés peligroso
Por conocer el placer de amar.
Constantemente les repetían
Que sin hombre no podía ser,
Y ellas siempre dudaban
Que alguno las pudiera merecer.
Dos hermosas mujeres,
Hermosos cuerpos de mujer,
Cabellos largos y perfectos,
Piel que no sabía envejecer.
En una cueva perdida
En la inmensidad del mar,
Dos sirenas descubrieron
La otra forma de mirar.
De mirarse la una a la otra,
El deseo de poder tocar
Aquello que veían y no,
Aun sin saber si lo debían buscar.
Lejos de sirenas y peces
Y lejos de la humanidad,
Ellas nunca resistieron
Poder saciar su curiosidad.
Dos hermosas mujeres
Que descubrieron la intimidad
Entre agua, rocas y silencio
Piel y escamas hallaron la unidad.
¿Qué era aquello que recorría su piel?
Nuevas sensaciones, dulces como miel.
¿Qué era aquello que escapaba de su boca?
El agua las envolvía, chocaban contra las rocas.
Con caricias y roces se llevaba

Together we set off these reactions,
feel them burning.
Your skin against my lifeless bones.
Together I can feel the spark,
inside of me.
A single kiss on your dynamic soul.
Blood starts to ignite with emotions,
I feel it churning.
A fragment of time into these eyes.
Without touch, without contact I can feel,
love inside of me.
How it starts off.
How it occurs.
How it happens,
Like fireworks through the splendid night.
How it starts off.
How it occurs.
How it happens.
How it ends.
Like fireworks of the splendid night,
when we come close.
Both of us are like elements.
Together we bond into something more,
my heart's melting.
My words into your little ears.
What I say causes you to rise and dance,
A single touch to where liquids lie beneath.
Go effervescent with such animation,
you're so tempting.
Marching minutes and seconds at your side.
These reactions of love hit and strike me, overwhelm me,
How it starts off.
How it occurs.
Empty HouseWhen I think of you, I think of homeEmpty House7 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Livin' out on the backroads,
Seems like we're all alone
Though we've got neighbors down the road
The days and seasons turn just like a page
Another chapter in our lives,
House fills with laughter as we age
The nephews and nieces come over to play
When I think of you, the distance isn't there
I can feel you right beside me,
My fingers in your hair
We sleep the world away without a care
I'm afraid to think this could be real,
That I couldn't be there
That I would never feel
Your hand in mine as I kneel
When I think of you, I know I'm not alone
I've learned to hold my head up
And not sink like a stone
You built my heart into your home...

Please promise that you are
At least as mad as me.
And if you are a fool,

Just love me foolishly forever

It's even better to see you laugh and smile
I want to be by your side forever
You're the image of perfection but...
I want you
I need you
But I can't be by your side
Maybe because you don't know I exist
Maybe because I'm annoying and selfish
But it's mostly because I'm never there for you.
You don't have to like me, I'm not like Facebook.
You don't have to share me, I'm not Twitter
You don't have to video me, I'm not Youtube
You don't have to draw me, I'm not like that.
You just have to be here. With me.
Just being close to you makes me feel proud.
I can't imagine life without you.
You just don't want me.
The thing that hurts the most... is seeing you... staring at me... seeing nothing.
It hurts me.
It kills me.
But I have to go on.
I have to.

I would have you fall for me with a simple vial
Bring the eye of newt and cat's eye
It's spell night
Because I'm going to bewitch you
Cast my charm and wit
I have tricks up my sleeves and trump cards
The moon is full and ripe
Time to pick a guy for my sinister plan~
Throw the magical spices in my cauldron
Add a pinch of love and tenderness
Tonight I make you mine
The night's air is perfumed in my scent
Come with me to night's end
I promise no hocus pocus
Just sweet vials and bottles of love potion number nine
Now I have you at cloud nine
So what will it be
Love this witch
Or I cast a spell on you~
My arsenal of dried herbs and toxins
Sure to make a man fall hard
I'm going to bespell you with eye contact
Make black cat's green with envy like their eyes
Because your mine~

The covers are made, pulled taut as plastic wrap,

I translate superlatives and imagine you sliding

I imagine you clicking your phone on under the blankets,
the dazzling light which will light up your sleepy eyes,
the soft champagne bubble of your sigh
tired and waiting for your lover.
We slouch at either end of the bed.
I could reach out and touch your leg with mine
if I wanted,
I could say I was offering you a cigarette but
I would really just be placing my hand over my heart
and kissing your lips and smiling at the next person
who asked if I was happy.
And I’d say no.
I’d say no to marrying you if you asked;
I’d say no to car trips or lunch dates
or walking to class because I know what an idiot I am.
I know that letting your name enter my mouth
like an orgasm was enough;
I know I breathe too heavily when I think about fire alarms,

SasuKarin totally legit. Proof 2"✦ “… Do you have someone who is special to you? … When you have something special that you want to protect… only then can you become truly strong!”SasuKarin totally legit. Proof 21 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
To put it shortly, I can’t apply this quote to Chapter 133 (Sasuke asking Naruto to save Sakura and then run away), because while he obviously wanted to protect them both; he didn’t really get the chance to do so. He got no power-up out of it, he beat no insurmountable odds to save Sakura; Naruto did. Meanwhile, I can very well apply it to Chapter 415 because Sasuke’s Sharingan did react to Karin’s plight, he did get an eye power up and he did beat up the odds. So, IMO, 415 really does go hand in hand with this memorable quote from Haku. And now I can also apply this quote to Karin->Sasuke thanks to Karin awakening her dormant Uzumaki powers for him. So again: Kishi’s authorial intent shines through, IMO.

Have you ever felt,
Like you were holding a fragile heart,
That could break any second,
And then it shatters,
And you don't know how to fix it?
Then your world goes wild,
With everything spinning but you,
You stand still and stare at the moment,
Not knowing what to say,
Not even paying attention anymore.
You want to say something to help the moment,
But tears are saying enough.
I want to hold the pieces of your broken heart,
And put it back to one.
I hold you close,
Hoping you can forgive me,
For hurting you so badly,
I tell you I love you,
And it's far from a lie.
I cry on your chest,
Apologizing again and again
You finally pull me away and lift my face up towards yours,
I look into your eyes,
Wanting to turn away,
But I'm forced by love to keep looking.
And you say the three words I longed to hear:
I love you.
You wipe away the tears,
Leaning forward to place a kiss upon my lips,
And you pull me away,
Holding me close as you can,
You tell me once more at the same time I te
Naruto chapter 698 rantIt amuses me to no ends to see SasuSaku shippers use the fact Sasuke admitted he sees the shadow of his family in Team 7 as an argument to /still/ defend the ship. You’d think that now that Sasuke had been so honest about his feelings he’d give Sakura more attention in his memories. But he didn’t. He spoke of Team 7 as a whole and did /not/ highlight her out. Sasuke caring about his team is nothing new - although I admit I find Madara a lot stronger in this aspect and I’m disappointed Sasuke gave in to Naruto in the end.Naruto chapter 698 rant1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
By the way, Karin or Taka not being in Sasuke’s memories proves nothing. This chap focused on Naruto and Sasuke and Team 7. Bringing Karin up would be out of place, plus Sasuke wouldn’t be the kind of guy to be like “Oh I’ve fallen in love…” although I’ll admit Kishi could have given Taka at least one panel for Sasuke’s memories.
