The moment your eyes turned away,
my hand immediately took yours.
There will be days when the sky is not the color you want it,
but when it is, even the rain is something to celebrate.
Your happiness is worth giving up this selfish feeling.
I began to understand this as I laid beside you.
"Where is that smile that keeps me here?"
On the rooftop, I asked you this.
For this lifetime and the ones after,
you will try to be happy from now on?
Our memories ran like rain.
There was never a moment until now that I wanted to tell you I needed you.
All of your sadnesses and worries gave me grief.

Loving wasn't always so difficult.
I knew you weren't beside me, but I instinctively turned to my right.
There are things a person's body doesn't want to forget even though one's mind may have forgotten.
You walked alone deep in thought along the sidewalk.
Streetlights illuminated our paths as we met.
Could there possibly be anything we'd want to forget?
I remember what it was like to live painless, but also loveless.
Being passive still isn't enough for a girl like me and something like this.
I remember what you said as the tears slid down.
There's nothing I wouldn't do for your ha

we embrace unhesitant.
There are no sad tears -
only happy ones.
Quiet smiles cannot hide,
for they are meant to be seen and admired.
The overwhelming relief of love...
or "no regrets..."
I save these happy sighs for last.
There is someone beautiful in my arms.
When will the next time be that
I can hold him?
I may not be certain about the future,
but I am certain he will be there.
Let me search the world again for you,
yet then again, you will be here.
Waves of bliss crash in my mind

I'm certain I won't hold back after this.
I'm blushing every time you kiss me.
Maybe I'm feeling a little lonely.
You put me in a mood I can't get out of.
My Sundays are filled with rain without you,
for there have been better rain showers with you in it.
If I am happy tonight, I will be forevermore.
Your words will steal me the moment I let them.
As if my mind didn't have enough thoughts about you,
I will be wishing for our next best kiss.
There's no way I'm going to keep you away.
I couldn't let that happen to you.
I'm ravenous enough that I can't risk you.

You don't belong to me anymore than the stars and the sun.
Perhaps contentment is only what we believe it to be....
I'm convinced that I'm a girl who can't love you any better.
If I let you go, you'll never have to hear from me again.
How could I say what I needed to tell you in a letter?
I'm no different from those girls who wanted to lock you away.
A white lie will give you reason to find truer happiness.
What makes you think I can know you if I don't know you today?
Will you let me spare you the pain of all my mistakes?

He offered me the sun.
I was living under rain,
but our happiness was warm.
His fingers were the rays of light
just as my cheeks were the clouds.
I don't need tears tonight
or any other night.
I murmured a polite thank you
as I held onto the chains,
until I could feel his arms
distancing me from him.
Wafts of his cologne mixed with the air -
so this is what home smelled like.
The sound of his breathing was addicting
in a strange kind to way -
to hear a man breathe is like drinking blueberry juice.
It got quiet again.

but in the bite of his lower lip.
His lips aren't the only things that can carry a tune.
Right-foot taps add to the dilemma.
He is a masterpiece -

Once the curtain falls,
I am the first person he goes to.
Hungry for HappinessThere will never be a person I care about more than you.Hungry for Happiness1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is this the real reason for pain?
If you hurt long enough maybe it means you love just enough.
You love was all I needed to get through a single hour,
and it's still true.
It changed me -
the sweet-smelling rain and your voice through the silence.
I want to own something beautiful,
so what makes you think I'm letting go?
By tomorrow afternoon, I'll still be here,
and I was right to claim you.
Reality said it was wrong,
but you made the truth bearable.
I was sick of lying about my happiness,
and I was right to ask for you -
was right to love and be loved by you.

Relics in clouds of cerulean and the green

The soul searches for what it doesn't have or own,
a place neither in heaven or hell to call home.
What may frighten another does not frighten him.
I suspect the pink stain on the coffee mug rim....
He is a catalyst, but doesn't know he's one.
If ever the world ends, where will there be to run?
We're not afraid of death, but of dying alone,

The starless sky could be purple,

Do you realize the complex and simple sides of me?
To never own something is painful,
but to have someone and lose them is agonizing.
Whatever I do, don't let go.
I wanted to tell you this as the light in your room began to fade.
We can go anywhere.
You promised me this, right?
If I were to fly with you,
our white feathers will instinctively tangle.
We were made separate just to remember what it was like.
The groaning eaves and your silver murmurs will drown me,
and I will let myself drown in you.

It was noticeable like a baby bump -
how happy we made each other.
Not all your girls liked who I was,
but you knew I meant something.
All the places you've been,
you took me there.
I knew that once I had you,
I would never forget the taste of you.
what would you have wanted me to do?
You were dying and I wanted you to live.
Why did you want to leave me behind so badly?
We were as memorable as the rain on a sunny day.
No one was going to stay long enough to hear the truth.
I'm not giving up on you just yet.

And saw a face I'd know anywhere
But your eyes that connected with mine
Didn't seem to know me anymore.
But mine knew yours
And all the heart-break that comes with them
Like a flashing camera light
You came back to me
That which I still longed to call you.
That which I still held over you.
With those lips that promised truth
You lied to me.
With these arms that promised to embrace you
I slammed the door in your face.
And all those tears I shed for you
With these eyes that know yours so well
And what with yours?
Do you not remember
Your face close to mine
Your finger tips
Sitting In a TreeWe shared a treehouse perched high on our apple tree,Sitting In a Tree1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
and ate crab apples that you picked from the open rafters.
On that branch far from where anyone could see,
We were like guardian angels in a weird way,
observing people as they obliviously walked by.
We slept in the tree when the cicadas sang to us,
and the traffic of cars simmered down to a breeze.
The amicable fireflies would be like night lights,
while your jacket and your warmth would be my blanket.
On exceptionally cooler nights,
we would walk hand-in-hand to that meadow.
Too young to be sleeping and too old to be staying up,
we lived in the other in a dreamlike state.

but there is nowhere to walk,
and I am needing happiness,

I will be restless.
Like every night,
I will go to a comfortable bed,
but I will be far from comfortable.
I will have slept,
but what kind of dreams will I have had?
My too personal thoughts are lofty and dramatic.
They sound a little different than when I usually speak to you
though they could be one and the same.
For all I know,
I could be giving you a terrible burden
in hundreds and thousands of ways.
I could be filling you with these rotten feelings -

If there was a pool of toxic rubber ducks,
I would push him into them.
Because how quickly does an apple rot?
Does it get blemished by bruises
or eaten from the inside out?
Do they rub against one another,
creating unwanted friction
or merges skins and transfers STDs?
This golden apple rots by being ripe (duh);
it will taste better than all the other silver apples combined!
Tonight, it will be succulent and sweet.
Tomorrow, it will be nonexistent!
I say nonexistent because only the good ones get eaten.

I gave them to the fish,
and in exchange,
the edge of my skirt soaked up pond water.
It smelled familiarly of a closer sea.
Every step will be like walking along the shore.
If you wanted to find me,
you'd have to think I was dead
or follow my vanishing footprints.
My road to nowhere,
lead me where the grass is high.
The rain will be the least of my worries.
I still have places the breeze will take me.
The midday sun won't be hot enough to need shade,
but I will still need a place to call home.
I felt the branches and leaves like the veins in my arms.
Emeralds are falling.

Cry in public as you are walking along the sidewalk.
Cry as you enter a supermarket - a bookstore.
All eyes will be upon you,
but what will they know?
All they know is that tears don't amount to anything.
Tears don't taste good to them as they taste to her and you.
No one will think of her any better -
all they know is that she is crying.
And what will she be? What will you be?
Solitude offers its condolences when she doesn't want it.
It is always the nightmares that fill her with doubts -

How sad to see her fall...
How sad to see what once was...
Cherished memories of a beauty...

She was that kind of girl that likes to be alone most of the time but, when is with someone, talks so much, no one else gets the chance to say anything else.

Steve thought Tony was an asshole. Then again, so did everyone else. But, when he got past the snarky remarks and the general rudeness, how couldn't he smile at the guy wandering into the kitchen at 2 in the afternoon with terrible bed-head in a pair of stripped boxers and fluffy slippers? It also didn't hurt that, when Tony didn't think anyone was looking, he did some extremely endearing things. Example #1: even when Tony came out of his workshop at 6am looking like he hadn't slept in days (which was probably accurate), if one of his like 70 cleaning robots had a squeaky wheel or a clogged whatever, Tony
