painting it silvery pink and dreamy.
But you're awake, sketching fiercely,
the remnants of a bad phone call
to your parents etched out in
violent strokes of teal and charcoal.
Pencil shavings on the floor,
paper cuts; girl, you're brutal
with your own feelings, aren't you?
And I feel sorry for the birds that
have to listen to your crying
in the early mornings.
They try their hardest to make you
smile, but after awhile,
they leave; flying off
while feeling unworthy,
like nothing they do will
ever be good enough
to send you to Wonderland.
Oh Hadley, take a breath..
You're as dry as a bone
in a forest of tulips and wild lavender.
You're a runaway from Canada;
you made it across the border,
leaped over the wildfire-tainted grass
plains and now you're here on my doorstep.
Oh how can I turn you away, ma cherie?
I only wish it were easier
to be your partner in crime;
your long-lost lover, twin
shadow, scarlet paramour.

And always so, so hurt
When troubles come
And my heart, couldn't bare
Then I will still, wait here in the shadows
Waiting for you, for you to sit with me
You raise me up, to climb the rocky mountains
You raise me up, to cross the stormy seas
I'm strong when I'm on your shoulder
You raise me up, to more than I can be x2

the sunset on the beach.
Lay me on your shoulder.
These past few days
have made me weak.
My arms can't hold onto
the giant boulder.
Let's picnic near
the ocean view.
Let me not stay
appart from you.
The sun then sets
on this day's eve.
No, not just yet
we part to leave.No, I disagree!
Why can't we stay like
this, for the summer time?
Can we just freeze the moment?
We only get so much chances to live
a life, I'm glad we chose to share.
Unspoken FeelingsHand in hand, we walk togetherUnspoken Feelings2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Making plans about forever
Kisses stolen to show care
Even though it's unsaid, love is there
Cuddling at night not just to be warm
They live in a mindset without such a storm
Together they are, forever it seems
I only wish this wasn't a dream

I really don't know
how to respond to that."
The words left your mind,
slipped through your fingers
and appeared on my screen.
You said we could still be friends;
you didn't want to see us end.
From the screen
in through my palms
rushing to my heart.
Your kindhearted soul
responded to me
like no other.
Mine and Mine Alone (KyoHaru)It's him, the one I've been dreaming ofMine and Mine Alone (KyoHaru)2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
The kind of man whom I ever fall in love
A tall, cold man stiffens in every countless ideas
I always keep on asking "Why his words are like the slightest touch of Midas?"
But one day it changed our fate
Slowly to think that I've been keep on dreaming on this mate
Do I need to keep on this wishful thinking?
Cause I never understand it's his love I've been longing
His hair is shiny and dark as the feathers of a crow
His onyx eyes beneath his glasses always look sharp and glow
His skin was as silky as a porcelain that can't be touched
His body was etched in a perfectionist's match
How would you ever know that I love you so?
Now everybody said that you want to let me go
Is it that Tamaki, your best friend's desires endless selfish requests?
Or just I don't fit for your father's etiquettes?
My endless desires contains everything about you
I don't want to end my feelings into a dramatic taboo
I may be harsh if you can feel me, that is okay
As long you

Afraid to trust anyone
Thinking the whole world was out to get me
Thinking the world was laughing at everything I said.
I remember thinking everyone was a good friend
Thinking everyone was nice and everyone made sense
I'm almost happy I stayed ignorant so long
Because I found you and this time I really belong
I remember believing you when you said we're friends forever
I remember telling you everything and you just listened
Didn't scream, didn't run away and disappear
Just accepted me and made me unafraid to say
I love you.

as the rainfall swiftly pouring
mem'ries back a thousand fold
eyes of mine are blankly staring
Wond'ring how time flies so fast

nowhere to go but to feel bad
I can hardly see but a glimpse
of the aged time I long credit
from you but a forgotten dreams
over now with adieu exit.
Pacifichis name was Pacific,Pacific3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
so I named my last lover Atlantic and
let myself start to drown;
so un-ladylike it was, you see,
to dream of a man before it was known
that he had dreamed of me.
but I thought of Vasco Núñez de Balboa
and how he must have tossed and turned at night,
crossing that raging sea,
and the relief, like sugar,
he found in the now-wild ocean
that prompted him to name
this quivering, aquatic anatomy of water,
with a handshake as cold as
Venice Beach in June,
he, in his own way, crashed
onto my cliffs, my geography
where many had rushed to find gold
but almost all left empty handed -
infamous, notorious tease.
I am California, and his name is Pacific.

And ground a glow with jack o` lanterns
Soft sweet smells of candied apples
Warm bon fire standing high like a phoenix ready to take off
My thoughts are on a sweet candy of my own
It's more sinful then chocolate
Better then peanut butter candies
The glow from the yellow candles gives your face such softness
As I see you, the rest of everyone disappears and I see only you with pumpkins surrounding you in devious smiles
Not only tonight is filled with tricks and treats but a spicy smitten love
My sweet pumpkin
I fear I would love to carve you with my passion and fill your insides with sweet teasing whispers
I believe this Halloween night will give us our own fright
Our raw feelings being only communicated by eye contact
As everyone celebrates with tales of fright around the fire
You light my fire
Make my cheeks glow red like the lighted pumpkins
And the distant owl calls to his mate to break the ice
I simply love your eyes
