The room spins as the dresses twirl,
The coat tails swaying gently as they lead.
Hand delicately in hand,
Slipping to the small of my back.
I shudder at the warmth of your touch,
My blood boils as you sear to the bone.
Eyes so refined they find their way to my soul,
The walls surrounding it crumble and fade,
I am bare.
I search for familiarity within the room,
But only find the masks,
Each portraying their wearers emotional desire.
Then as I find your face I can see through the fašade,
I see the beauty of your essence as it steals my breath.
Suddenly I am surrounded by darkness,
The games are over,
And I know I will find the truth here,
Your touch finds me,
Your eyes strip me.
My fingertips touch the cold, blank mask,
Upon which you hide your beauty.
With a shiver gripping my spine I remove your mask.
I keep you from turning away as the truth gazes upon me,
The ugliness which you hide more beautiful then I realized.
With a tender touch I caress each scar, each flaw,

"Morning." He said, sitting on the edge of the bed near me, rubbing his thumb along my jaw line. I sat up, fisted my hand into his shirt, and pulled him down into my lips. That definitely woke me up.
"Morning." I sighed, our lips only an inch a part. "Now, tell me why you're in my room." He pulled away and taking his warmth with him, frowning.

Pokemon Sapphire came into my possession on my ninth birthday, a gift from my oldest (and obviously favorite) brother. It was brand new with the shiny wrapping of plastic unscathed. One squeal of excitement later and the plastic was ripped to shreds, the cartridge yanked out and shoved into a white, sticker-covered Gameboy, or, as I liked to call it back then, my Gamegirl.
The second my eyes landed on Torchic, I become one of those 'catch all the cute ones' trainers. I loved to breed, compete in contests, spend hours raising specially breed Pokemon in preparation for the contests, those kinds of things. I was pretty shallow, all things considered. Any Pokemon that evolved against my will were subsequently released without guilt. However, not once did I fail to capture a Pokemon I had my heart set on making mine.
The younger me sighed wearily as yet another wild Pokemon battle began. My eyes remained fixed on the glowing screen as the music played and the game revealed my attacker: a fa
