LongingYou're happy, you're laughing
It's the most adorable sound
I don't want to take my eyes off of you
You have me here spellbound
I love you so very much
You make my world a better place
It's like you wash all my worries away
Just with a simple embrace
And then I open my eyes just to find
That I'm still alone on the dark
Alone but surrounded by people
And that's what's breaking my heart
Surrounded by my loved ones
We're together but still we're apart
When I close my eyes again
I'm right back there in your embrace
And I wonder why this isn't real
'Cause I can so clearly see your face
But it is nothing but my mind
Trying to keep you here
'Cause it's killing me that you're gone
I just want you to be near
And when I open my eyes I find
That I'm still alone in the dark
Alone but surrounded by people
And that's what will heal my heart
Surrounded by my loved ones
They'll help me to a new start
The ProtectorI want to keep her safeThe Protector6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I just want to protect her
But there's no way I can do that
Being with me means being in danger
I can keep her safe
From anything that could hurt her
Except for myself
I am far too much of a monster
So the safest thing I can do
Is to keep her away from me
While trying to keep her safe from distance
That's just the way it has to be
And I know that it will hurt her
But she'll be better off that way
And she might not understand
Why I have to keep away
But I couldn't live with myself
If she got hurt because of me
So no matter how I love her
This is the way it has to be
I do it because I love her
Maybe someday she will see
Wiccan WishWiccan WishWiccan Wish10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If I could make one wish,
And know that it would come true
I'd wish the whole world wiccan
So you can be a witch too.
I think wiccans get the best in life,
We also get the worst
But thats because the Christians
Rained upon our faith a curse
Common misconceptions of our faith include
Bloodletting, putting spells on men,
Riding broomsticks, eating children
And consorting with Satan
But on the inside, it's not like that,
Nothing like that at all
We're all a part of an intricate web,
A web thats called the world
We stand in circles and call to us
Energy to love and heal
We thank the lord and lady
For what we get out of this deal
We celebrate all of nature
In an intimate way,
Marking all our sabbats with
The dark of night and light of day
We see life as a circle
A never ending cycle
In death we see new beginning
Not the start of trouble
If the whole world was wiccan
More trees would be standing
Greed would almost be nonexistent
And less wars would be starting

Your passion burns in me,
Desire and such heat,
But then, you never stop to see
Oh Water flowing liquid,
Your shifts I understand,
First calm and then you're raging,
But sometimes you're out of hand
Oh Earth grounded spirit,
So steady and so mild
You always know your place
But sometimes you go wild
Oh Air unseen magic,
Your winds live in my heart,
Where they blow I wish to follow,
But you cannot make me part
All pieces of the puzzle,
Each a different part,
You live on in all of us,
Oh, nature's work of art.
YouDo you know just how you always make me feel?You5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You make me feel alive and you make me feel unreal.
You make me feel like magic when magic cannot be,
And you make me feel so different, or perhaps just more like me?
You make me long for stories and places that don't exist,
You make me feel like sunrays when really I am mist.
You fill my head with gold and stars - and things never seen,
You make me feel just everything when I'm really stuck between.
You make things seem so clear, yet so confusing at the same time,
You make me dream of dreams and long for lives that can't be mine.
You make me burn like fire and like light you make me glow,
And I couldn't ever tell you and you wouldn't ever know.
Death of the Padawan"Master?"Death of the Padawan2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Darth Vader turned towards the sound of her voice, surprised that he had not felt her presence before that moment. But there she was, the female Togruta, stepping slowly out of the shadows of the huge balcony, hesitation and disbelief mingled on her face. She had grown taller during the two years that had passed since they last met, her lekkus were longer and her montrals had grown as well, her entire body was more developed, though she was not yet fully matured. She was armed, he quickly noticed, a lightsaber and a shoto at her hips. He had clones inside the palace-like building, and around it as well, but he was not surprised to find that she had managed to sneak passed them, she was his former padawan after all.
He ignored her attempts to speak to him completely, and he would not respond to his old name. There was pain on her face now as she inched closer still. He simply stood there, watching her. Armed or not, he was a Sith Lord, she a former Padawan, and he co

2. Take a moment to think of nothing but her; ignore the tears welling up in your eyes. Now think of her voice. Now think of the hurt. See? No more tears.
3. Let the anger take over until she's not the person you fell in love with. Really, you don't even know who she is anymore, and it can't hurt to lose someone you don't know.
4. Read your old poems without thinking abut her; listen to love songs without crying; flirt with someone new without comparing them to her.
5. Stop writing for her, stop writing to impress her, stop writing to tell her how you're too afraid to feel. She doesn't care anymore, you shouldn't either.
6. Rewrite your life story without her. Let her fade into the background, just a raindrop on the windshield or a snowflake in the sky.
7. Burn everything you own that makes you feel empty or tight chested, anything that reminds you of her. Go refurnish your room with new things to assign memories to.
8. Be relieved. Be completely happy and comfor
FrustrationI sit, I think, I wonder why,Frustration12 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I cannot see inside your mind.
There's something there, what can it be?
I wonder if you ever think of me.
I sit and stare, look deep in your eyes,
But what's inside is all a surprise.
You mean so much to me, more than you'll ever know,
But how you feel, you do not show.
It's frustrating not knowing where I stand,
My emotions lying helpless in the palm of your hand.
I wish you would tell me the thoughts in you head.
Instead you just lay there, numb, in your bed.
You're brilliant. You're beautiful. A true work of art.
I just wish I could find a way to your heart.
Just to be near you, it makes my heart soar,
But when you cut yourself off is when my spirit drops to the floor.
I like you, I want you; don't know what else to say.
Would you tell me what you're feeling; I'll be complete that way.
I think of you and wonder why
I can't have you here by my side.
I look at you, you're all I need
But all you want is to be freed.
I'm in love, you're unaware

the ceiling of the world.
We climbed into the hot air balloon
the very next day.
It was warm, almost too warm,
but her hands were cold in mine
and her gaze was frosty,
her eyes starlit and heaven sent.
I asked which ceiling she'd prefer,
in hopes of stretching a smile across
that galaxy expression.
It was a multiple choice question:
a) The troposphere
b) The stratosphere
c) The balloon fabric in the hot air balloon
She picked d) none of the above,
and ignored the smile waiting for her.
She (distantly) wondered where we would soon be--
a) Heaven, slowly reeled in as if caught on a fishing hook?
b) Space, floating breathlessly away from each other, timeless and eternal?
c) Earth. The Eighth World Wonder, two human-shaped craters of an aspiration so
high it ended up being on the bottom.
I could imagine the tourist mommys telling the tourist kiddies why
they called it a world wonder:
"it's hard to imagine two people so incredibly stupid"
HopeWhat are you without hope?Hope9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How can you make it through each day?
Why would you let it die?
When it can help you on your way?
I know to let yourself hope,
can fill each day with fear,
but to live your life without,
will just bring unwanted tears.
Do not presume that I don't know,
how hard each day can be,
though hope does fill me up inside,
it's hard for you to see.
For many years I've had hope,
follow me through my days,
for just as many days that pass,
fear chases my hopes away.
Though fear is always there with hope,
how could I let it die?
This something that I want so much,
is the reason that I try.
To give up so easily on my hope,
would be a foolish thing to do,
for though you can not see,
one day it will come true.
I know it's hard to carry hope,
so close against your heart,
but if you let it die,
where would you ever start?
As days pass you by,
the hope will come and go,
but don't forget that it is there,
and don't forget you know.
I understand that what I say,
is hard for you to

This all can't be real.
Please, wake me up-
I am alone and it's too late
For I've only just realized
My love for you.
However, you left
Because I was blind
And now, this guilt I feel
Is eating me inside.
The sadness consumes me
And I try to escape
But why can't I accept
That it is too late?
Perhaps I am desperate,
Perhaps I long
For your undying affection,
And your love.
I'm searching for the exit
And I must hurry
Because there might be a chance
That you'll love me again.
You have no idea
How much I miss
Your unblemished face,
Your precocious smile,
And your ever-so-mellifluous voice.
This has to be a dream.
This all can't be real.
Please, wake me up-
Cure my heart
Which had so stupidly ignored
The love you showed to me.
Please, I beg of you-
Come back to me.
I must convince you somehow.
Yes, I must be firm.
I regret my mistak

The Lone WolfA silhouette up on the rockThe Lone Wolf7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the full moon hangs behind
The wolf song that is sung
in search for its own kind...
He once was called "alpha male"
the lead wolf of his pack
A position lost with age
due to the stamina he lacks...
He once stood strong and tall
this old aged canine king
Tonight he walks the dark alone
with no pack, no den, nothing...
For time is without mercy
pulling the strong to their knees
He lifts his voice once more
to send his song on the night breeze...
The countless stars across the sky
watch him from far above
He mournfully recalls his life mate
of his life, the missing love...
His mind drifts to the many hunts
and the sharing of the blood lust
When he could identify his brothers
and he knew who he could trust...
Now he is a renegade
and he scavenges alone
Through many nights of hunger
while chewing on an old bone...
Off in the distance he can hear
the "others" share the howling
Around him he can hear others
the predators out prowling...
He knows his time is limited
