(You'll both be several years older.
You'll both have jobs. A home. A family)
You'll finally be able to say;
"Hey. I loved you."
And you will mean it, and you will speak in past tense, instead of present, so he can go home to his kids (the ones you babysit every Saturday) and you can still be friends.
(Because he will have forgotten that time you told him there really was no such thing as a past tense "loved". He will have forgotten the time you told him that it was just a comfort word; a word made up by people in couples therapy trying desperately to make it okay to not-be-okay anymore, to make it okay to say goodbye. Or not. That you never really stop loving someone, though you may desperatly wish you could.)

I Guess I FellI Guess I Fell6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I'm sorry, I fell.
I'm sorry, I tell.
I'm sorry, I screamed.
I'm sorry, I seemed.
I'm sorry, I tried.
I'm sorry, I cried.
I feel empty.
An empty void,
A black space.
I feel lonely
In this place.
I can't find a place,
I can completely belong.
I can't find a place,
I don't do something wrong
Cut me up.
Slice me to death.

Take my last breath.
Kill me, kiss me.
Hate me, miss me.
Love me, diss me.
Leave me to die.
At the end of the day I'm still your toy
To have and to hold to come and destroy
I'm sorry I cried.
I'm sorry I screamed.
but most of all honey,
I'm sorry you're seeing me fall.
ATDD - What Are You Afraid Of?The Wheel stood before the Baron of Brennenburg and his apprentice. Alexander had secured the alleged murderer's limbs to the rim and spokes, stretching the man across the wheel's round face. He placed a hammer in Daniel's hands.ATDD - What Are You Afraid Of?4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Daniel hesitated. The cloth gag and the burlap sack covering the murderer's face did not muffle the man's cries nearly enough. This was not the first time Daniel had helped Alexander, and it would not be the last, but surely even a criminal did not deserve something as cruel as this.
"Well, Daniel," Alexander beckoned, "what are you afraid of?"
Daniel paled. His lips parted, and his tongue flicked out to wet them. He studied Alexander, gripping the handle of the hammer in one hand, and palming the head of it in the other.
The baron's expression was indiscernible. Alexander stared coolly at his apprentice, his hands clasped behind his back, and waited. Daniel must have kept him too long. The baron's brow creased deeper the longer they stood, his patience wea
Between HeartbeatsWe hold in our kiss what you once called the beauty of a fading dream,Between Heartbeats4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The light to what seems to be a way of desperation,
Or perhaps just one to break down my seams.
Your touch calls upon my skin waves upon waves of trembling need,
Leaving me in fear of your breath-taking little smiles,
A chance to lose my mind to this consolation of love in between.
But I'm the one who has been preaching the lack of beauty in a fading dream,
Lighting the light in making our own unfading dreams,
And to perhaps hoping to fall in love somewhere in between.

"We are so emo."
That's the only thing in my friend Tyler's AOL Instant Messenger profile. It's his way of describing the two of us in the simplest of terms. As far as I know, we're the only two people alive that will own up to the title. Near as I can tell it spells death for anyone else.
What are we owning up to? Our tight shirts, straight-legged jeans, messy hair, and thick-rimmed glasses? Our penchant for bands our age that moan about exclusion, the girl that they can't have, and angry sex? Our shameless fancies for Mandy Moore, Love Actually, and Star Wars?

"I love you." The words escaped my mouth before I could hush them. His lips curled upwards in a cruel but beautiful parody of a smile that sends my whole body quivering with anticipation.
Precision is his tool, and everything he does, he does with calculated, measured intention.
"Again," he said. A command, simple seeming, but it bears more weight than any command he'd given yet, even the one separating me from Life.
I try to push the words off my tongue, but they seem to be stuck now, blocked by the shock of my initial outburst. Sensing my hesitation, he seized hold of my head and grasped it tightly, forcing me to look at him. I tried to break free, startled as I was by the suddenness of his actions, but his strength overcame my frail attempts.
"Be still!" He ordered me firmly. I had no choice but to listen. I could no more defy him here in his own realm than I could in life. "Now," he said coolly in my ear, "You already belong to me. What have you to fear in saying that phrase again?
Not Quite UnrequitedI did not know that you felt that way,Not Quite Unrequited6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
that you allowed your heart to keep time to none but mine.
You told me that I was the one you dreamed of always,
but I never knew it of you.
Did you hide it so well,
or did I not see the signs for what they were?
So close to me,
like my right hand,
I never knew it was my left that you wanted to hold.
I tell you bluntly,
too much so in my shock,
that your love is not returned quite the same way.
But if that be in fact true,
why is it then,
that suddenly my heart seizes in a pain I have never before known?
It is as if,
no heart had I,
until this moment when you asked of me to give it to you.
WorldYou tear my soul to shredsWorld4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can this really be happening
I thought we were more
I thought I meant more
You are the fire in my stomach
The bandage that wraps my wounds
The healer of my soul
With your sweet voice and heart
How can you do this
You are breaking me in 24 pieces
Knocking down what self-esteem I have
My mind is so weak, my heart so frail
I wish I knew how to deal with this
I wish I knew how to love myself completely
Maybe than, you will love me
More than you do now
Maybe than your wings will grow
And envelop me within a safe haven
Where the words don't hurt
And the abuse is all gone, forgotten
Please baby, don't abandon me too
I am strong enough to survive
But never alone, I need you
To hold my hand, just for a while
Won't you grant me this one wish
To be your heart and world
If maybe just for one more night
And just one more kiss
Sweetie, you are my world
I just wish, you could say the same

The suns intense rays poured over the dry ground as five sweaty males played their hearts out on stage to entertain their loving fans. The crowd cheered as the music got louder and the finale came closer. The shrill of the guitars and the beat of the bass intertwined to form a wondrous symphony. Emotion was pouring out of every word that sung and every chord that was played. This was where the five men wanted to be.
As the heat persisted the crowd began to get restless as they waited for the ending that was highly anticipated. The highlight of the show was approaching, sending the crowd into a fit of excitement. The opening chords of the last song were played as teasing words were spoken. Gerard smirked as he began to sing with all his heart and passion.
In the middle of a gunfight,
He moved his hips flirtatiously as each word came out of his mouth.
In the centre of a restaurant,
He blew a kiss to the crowd.

The Only OneSome people said my words are fake because they sound so beautiful,The Only One5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
That it is always a good prudence to feel that things feel too good to be true.
People are not supposed to care, to see beauty in the plainest of things.
It's just like beliefs are not supposed to be true and there's no such thing as true love too.
Still I continued to write out all the beautiful things I know,
Trust in love that feels too good to be true,
Care for people I should never have cared for,
And never once looked to you.
But now you are the only one I speak to,
The only one who's heard all my ugly stories of love,
The only one who have always seen through my poems,
The only one in my life I feel may be too good to be true.

He holds on to his memories,
Close and tightly.

He cant see it,
The lies she's told.
He deserves more,
Hes a game she plays.
Never stops dreaming,
Shell come back one more time,
How many times does he have to cry?
How many times does she have to say goodbye
Theres more than that girl in the world,
But shes the only one,
Who shines in his eyes.
Ill always be on the side lines,
Waiting for the day he realizes he's better than her,
And notices me.

She left without saying goodbye. I felt betrayed, in a way. Angry that she'd just leave like that, and angry that I'd just let her go. And hurt: my shoulder blades ached from the oh-so-sweet sensation of being stabbed in the back.
At the same time, I felt a fleeting swoop of joy. This is what I wanted: proof that I was living in the past. That I really didn't stand a chance. She'd trace her pretty, torn-up nails across my throat and we'd both agree: "I don't love you anymore." I'd drink her forgotten tears and she'd bite my Cheshire smile.
And my wild imaginings would disappear.
Maybe I'd fall asleep at

Call it depression if you want
It is how I feel inside
I am falling apart
I say I don't want love
But I really do
The love I want is taken though
Never to be mine
The pain from when you left
Never to completely heal
Your face and your voice
Brings it all back
The things that could have been
Seemed so special
Whilst now amount to nothing
As I lay here alone
A simple smile and those beautiful eyes
I remember how you treated me
The things I looked forward to
and The hours on the phone
Life is a mess inside my head
As I say I am alright
The thoughts always come back
While I try to sleep at night
I have given all of my heart
There is none more to give
Feelings never new now
Love only for the past and desire

Yeah, this is no place for a lady. But deep down inside, I know one things for sure I am NO LADY. I never have been and never will be. Not that it bothers me. I was always been marked as a Demon-Child by just about everyone- especially my parents or should I say my so-called parents. Having said that, Ive often wondered who I really was. Why was I so different from the other people around me? What made me Evil? Was I really a Demon as they said? I wanted answers but I never would have expected it to come knocking on my door.

I would laugh at their corny words
and at their meaningful vows
I used to scoff at
The "I love you MORE" battles,
because they seemed so fake
the blushes on that girl's cheeks...
showed me that i was missing nothing
When i joked, they would ask
"Why do you feel like that?"
I used to say, "Love is never this way."
and one would reply, looking in the other's eyes
"Love is different, love is true, when you find love...you'll know this feeling too."
I didn't believe them
it took me awhile to see
that maybe they were right...

I have fallen in love with...
the corny words and promises...
the compliments that make me blush...
and the "battles"...?

I was wrong,
love is different.
love is true.
and I found love,

In the nightNight timeIn the night6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Spent in the arms of a lover
Or alone, in cold sheets
Warm breath softly falling against your neck
Chilling wind creeping through thin cotton
Another body gently resting against yours
Emptiness clinging close like death
Sweet nothings tenderly whispered into your ear
Gusts wickedly taunting of your fate
Awakening, gently stirring, stretching, relaxing back into dreams
Nothing, only absence and longing
Gazes recently held, promises vowed lingering sweetly in the air
Staring into darkness, its so very quiet, isnt it?
Fingers intertwined, together even when your minds are resting
Hands gripping the sheets, mind apart, never releasing reality
Love drips from your lips, slack with the sand mans gift
Tears freely flow, stinging your already dampened cheeks
There is no lust seen here, no trace of pride
Nothing but envy taints the scene, wrath suffocating
Simple warmth surrounds your heart, this just seems right
Cold, everything seems wrong just wrong
