DistanceI have this love for you unmatched.Distance8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Already feel so damned attached.
Dreams of you, floating free.
Wishing these fantasies could only be.
But here lives a monstrous realism.
Stealing the joy from my very bosom.
That this gap between us lies.
Preventing us from solidifying ties.
Each night, I try to rest.
At ignoring this distance, I am not the best.
Sometimes I cry myself to sleep.
And my lonliness becomes far too deep.
Deep within, exists another I.
Desiring nothing more than for what we have to DIE.
Insidious, insightful, slithering through my heart.
Striking at every insecurity, quick as a dart.
Inside my core, ambivelance abounds.
Confusion reigns, stalking his very rounds.
Half pulls this way, half pulls that way.
Do I leave, or do I stay?
Though, when we talk I become elated.
It just feels so right, as though it were already fated.
The beauty of it makes me shed a tear.
As you always chase away the fear.

Can't seem to close my eyes,
Because if I close my eyes,
I wonder if it's real.
My mind wanders...
It wanders back to you,
And I wonder how you feel.
I just want touch your face,
And not feel the cold, empty screen,
Lonely nights staring at the screen,
It shows me what's missing.
That I often feel,
And the only time I really feel,
It's when you're not missing.
I can't bear the nights without you,
Though those nights are all I have.
It seems impossible to go without you,
When I cannot smile, & I cannot laugh.
But some day...
It'll all be okay,
Because then I'll fill my days with you.
I'll fill my days with you.
It counts down the hours,
To a time that will be ours
In some place neither here nor there.
I try not to miss you so,
But every where I go,
There are pieces of you everywhere.
I can't close my eyes
And not remember all of your smiles
Or how you've driven for miles
Just to be near.
And when I wake,

And all we have is the phone.
We may stay up extremely late,
But we know our fate is full known.
Because I love you and you love me.
I know we'll be together again soon.
Being with you is all I think about, baby.
And fate still rings that beautiful tune.
I get butterflies in my stomach,
Just at the mere thought of you.
You know, you left me awestruck?
But texting or talking will have to make-do.
And I'll also keep dreaming of us,
Until we can see each other again.
I'll always love you forever, I promise.
Distance may be great, but it can't win.

Even though I've tried my hardest.
But the problem isn't me-
You gave up.
Do you honestly believe that you're alone
We've all been where you are-
Trapped between child and adult,
Having lost sight of who you are, what you want,
Blinded to what you may be becoming.
Though herein lies the greatest difference between you and us,
More importantly, between you and I.
We gazed into the blackest eyes of loss and adversity-
Yet we struggled on, we persevered in teh face of all tribulation.
Simply, you rolled over to play dead.
You surrendered to challenge, and have weakened for it.
And this I cannot stand-
For it, I cannot bare to gaze upon you.
I can't help you,
Because you've show me that you don't want it.
After so much pain, I've finally figured the problem out.
And it is your burden, one that I shall shoulder no longer.

Though I may cry and though I may weep;
I know you may be far but in my heart I shall keep.
Thoughts of you have made my days bright;
I wish to kiss your lips and hold you tight.
I know, at times, I can be hard to understand;
With all of the wonderful things I know is at hand..
Why should I let tears fall from my face?
Why not a smile to wear in their place?
Because I need you here and in my arms;
Because I know in your love, I shall never no harm.
Because as I lie in bed these countless nights;
I wish and I pray that I could take flight.
Over the miles that come between;
Over the fields and across every stream.
That I could rest soundly within your space;
Gaze into your eyes and caress your face.
Whisper my love into your ear;
Tell you all of the words I've wanted you to hear.
But then I awake, alone in my bed;
Thoughts, all of you, running through my head.
I know that someday my dreams will come true;
I wish and I pray that "someday" will be soon.

Lie more intimacies than one thousand words could ever share.
"I love you" is not enough.
"I am yours" will never come close.
How many feelings can people share,
As their lips meet in the most precious of expressions.
If I were to take your delicate face into my hands,
And slowly drew your lush mouth to mine;
Would you taste yourself upon my tongue?
Could you understand how deeply within me you run;
Straight into the core of my very being.
Could you finally understand how broadly you cover my thoughts;
Overtaking every inch of my mind.
If I should press your back to the wall,
And quickly draw myself against you;
Might you smell the hunger upon my breath?
Would the passions of my desires slip into your veins;
To cloud our minds with lustful urgency.
Will you feel the beating of my heart for you;
As it completes me with your essence.
Within that single kiss,
Rests all my hopes dreams.
My wish to fill you with these fantasies;
To share my mind.

Yet this celestial orchestra falls upon deaf ears.
For I strain myself to hear naught but a single note;
The heartrendingly, innocent purity of your laugh and sigh.
Thrust in my twilight world, Heaven's light might seek to cast out the shadows of my fears;
Yet I would forcibly and happily exile the purifying flame of God from my eyes.
For I wish to take in only an earthly grace;
The hauntingly perfect beauty of your form and poise.
If I should wander into the garden of perfection, where the aromas forever rapture;
Yet still will I turn from that unflawed paradise.
For my nose tracks only one scent through world and wilderness;
That which flows from the waters of your springs of love.
Should I taste fruit of the trees of life and death;
Yet will I not find the culmination of my goal for the universe's ultimate flavor.
For I have already been blessed with the sweetest treat;

Talking to a person that i think about all day
I wish i could be with them right now
But they live so far away, I dont know how
I want to be with this person so bad
But all I can do is dream which makes me mad
I just want to leave this place
and go see the person's I love face
I sit here dreaming more and more

I want to be with you so much
But you're to far away i can't even feel your touch
But No matter the distance we're apart
I'll always love you with my heart

It took a great deal of trying and at least an hour, but Gray managed to tilt the chair just far enough for just long enough that Prince was able to slip a few coils of rope free of the leg. The slack was enough that he could move, and he twisted so that his chest touched Gray's hand.
"Okay, Gray." He said, trying to catch his breath. "That's me. I need you to go under my jacket. Feel that? That's my radio- grab it."
Once Gray had a firm grip on the radio, Prince shifted back, and the radio slid out of its holder.

Of BeautyThey told me beauty was dangerousOf Beauty7 years ago in Open More Like This
But I searched for it, In a dusk café
Of a twilight City, where the space between night and day
Is the swirl of a coat.
The cardplayers and espresso sippers,
The lost music of my generation and the
Generation lost in music. The cold, cold
Glass against my shoulder, warm
Ceramic in my hands.
Its raining outside, and sometimes
The door opens up and Rain comes in,
Bells chiming his entrance.
No one sees him but metheir faces and
Eyes are lost in each other.
Rain shakes my hand and
Sits beside me, and rests his damp head
On my shoulder.
Are you beauty? I ask him.
Yes, he says, But not yours.
The man behind the counter slides me
A drink, along with a bill thats
Less than it should be. His skin and hair is ivory.
I ask Albino if he is Beauty.
Yes, he says. But you wouldnt guess it.

You're thousands of miles away

My life goes on, but you're what's missing
Can't wait to hold you, touch you and feel you kissing -- my lips
Every thought of you at ease
Makes me want to scream, "God Please" (God Please)

Distance only makes us stronger
The distance of love will stay in our hearts
'Cause it's the distance of love

They can't keep my dreams from being true
You're the only one I've always wanted
You became even more to me
You're worth everything I am
That's why I thank God that you're my man
In the future, I'll reminisce about the time I met you
And when I walk down that aisle in white
I'll always remember that

I shrug, listless eyes skimming
The cold, glassy sheen of the lake.
The words flutter by your lips
And light softly upon my conscience
Like birdsong to my frozen ears.
Your long, ivory fingers
Raise thin trails of goosebumps
On the back of my hand;
A shiver dances down my spine
And I gasp.
What's the matter? You ask.
My startled gaze darts from freckle to freckle
Playing join-the-dots upon your pretty nose;
Watching November's breath
Stir your silken chestnut hair.
I issue a sigh; your eyelashes beat together.
You are such a strange girl, you murmur.
The quiet statement makes me recoil;
Withdrawing back into myself, eyes glazed over.
I bruise so easily these recent times
Much like the sky above us
When thunder has beaten it black and blue.
A symphony begins out on the lake.
Drops trace down my cheeks
As you raise my chin with those icy fingers;
Lips brushing mine for one sweet moment
Before you turn and vanish
Into the mist among the reeds;

That I keep my thoughts on you.
I cant see you every day,
And there's nothing I can do.
All I do is hear your voice,
And dream of your sweet face.
Not even in the simplest world,
Could a memory be retraced.
I think of you each minute,
With the songs that always play.
Or the midnight shadows calling out,
Or the sunlight in the day.
I wish I didn't cause these things,
To happen between us.
Maybe, some day, things will change,
And they'll be able to soon trust.
All I want to do is cry,
Whenever I hear your name.
I know that I cant see you here,
Without you, I'm not the same.
Its my fault that this happened,
And I'm sorry that it did.
Who would have guess that you and I,
Would ever even kiss?
But now I fear that things have changed,
And it's all because of me.
I'm the reason I can't smile,
Or be the best that I can be.
I'm the reason that I changed,
To someone that breaks down.
Without you there to hold me close,
All I can do is frown.
Even if I hear your voice,

Stephen's parents didn't quite understand this part of their only child, being that they were both born filthy rich, but they indulged him, anyway.
Stephen's current job was as a librarian in the massive library owned by a friend of his parents. It was filled with dusty old volumes of poetry, plays, classic novels, collections of literary legends like Poe. There were a few shelves of contemporary books, and a large children's section for the owner's adorable six-year-old triplets. Stephen was absolutely smitten with all three girls and spent most of his working hours reading to them.

Conveying my thoughts and feelings while I am silent.
She would stand proud when I fall,
Inspiring my soul to seek truth and fight for its convictions again.
She would burn within the fires of creativity,
Her muse flooding the world with the brilliance of her hope.
She would hold fast to the innocence of her dreams,
Never breaking, never faltering and laughing in the face of cynicism.
She would fight me when I err,
Not accepting simply out of love.
She would never allow arrogance to rule her,
Always willing to admit that she could be wrong.
She would always love me,
Remaining by my side until the end.
She would have this love to share with others,
Cultivating this love in all that she meets.

Steven was far from a morning person, and his stepbrother Johnny was always up before him, so seeing him sitting at the breakfast table was normal- it took Steven a minute to realize that the fact that Johnny was tied to his chair and gagged was not normal.
"Holy shit, little bro!" He exclaimed once he caught on, hurrying over and carefully peeling the tape off Johnny's lips. "What the hell have you been up to?"
Johnny's first words were, "Get out of here, quick, before she comes back!"
"Before who comes-"
"You really should learn to be quieter, Steven Montgomery." A strange female voice behind him said, and something cold touched the back of his neck. "I'd hate to blow your jugular out all over your poor little brother, so I'd suggest moving nice and slow and lying down on the floor."

Connor had another reason to not knock today, however- Marshall had been supposed to meet him an hour ago at the school, so they could go see a movie. Marshall was never late if he could help it, and if he couldn't, then he would have called. He hadn't called, and Connor was going to find out why.
So he slipped quietly in the front door, alert for noises or signs of something wrong. The living room was clean and empty, as was the kitchen, and Connor wasn't stupid enough to go snooping in the second bedroom- he went straight to Marshall's room, easing the door open.
Marshall was lying on his bed, eyes closed. There was a strip of tape over his mouth, his wrists were tied behind him, and his ankles had been bound as well.
