Night PersonifiedI am the night
Can you see me?
If you can at all.
Sometimes I can be completely dark,
The moon lights your path.
She sits in my sky
Watching over all
As I blanket the world in darkness.
No one realizes that I blanket them.
They take me for granted.
Yet I'm here
As I have been since the dawn of time.
I am the dark that falls before you fall into slumber
I hold the stars for you to watch
In wonder and in awe.

We walked to the Lyon's Den.
He bought us bubble tea.
You and I,
Had a side conversation
He was jealous.
We didn't care.
We kept flirting.
There is a small
Are completely opposite.
That's why we get along so well.
We tell one another
That I love you
And you love me.
We're best friends.
Started up the steep hill
After that cup
Of bubble tea.
We trust each other.
To that frozen drink
Because it reminds me
Of you smiling,
Of your eyes
Twinkling with joy.
I love bubble tea
Because I love you.

160206What is love?1602066 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Answering that question is about as simple as answering, "What is life?". One subtle difference is that there are people who do not believe in love. I do not
know of anyone, and do not think it is possible to not believe in life.
But that is beside the point.
The point is that so many people of my generation (principally, young girls) think they are in love. Think they have been in love. Think it is some great,
wonderful, beautiful thing, full of happiness and wonder.
It is not.
Love is simply a mix painful and torturing agony.
People today think the movie scene love is what they will get when they fall, and fall hard, but it is not like that, never was like that, and probably never
will be like that. Not even just probably. Definitely.
Sweaty palms is not love. Love is not a racing heart, a trembling feeling, or not being able to speak in full sentences to that person. That is all liking
someone, to the point of nervousness. Far from love. Very far.

that I may plant wet, sloppy kisses on your face
and on the tongue that you stretch out to receive them.
(but you would shiver at their coldness on your skin.)
If only I were the earth,
that you may see me as something reliable and everlasting,
and I would bear you up whichever path you choose to follow.
(but you would only walk all over me.)
If only I were the sky,
that I may watch over you wherever you are,
and you would see my changing moods and colors as I see yours.
(but we would never be able to touch.)
If only I were the air,
that with every breath you would take me in and change me,
and without me you would not be able to live.
(but you would only come to take me for granted.)
If only I were the ocean,
that I could be forever coming forward to embrace you,
laying treasures of the deep sea by your sand-stained feet.
(but my currents would drag you down and drown you.)
If only I were the moon,
that I could follow you and change as you change,

PlumSay what you will about the apple of Eve,Plum4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or the coy virginal cherry;
Their feminine sensuality is overrated
And cheaply bought
Hard and red and sour
And waxed to a high, smiling shine.
There is womanhood to be had in a plum.
Beneath the deep purple peeks deeper red,
Rising from beneath the thin skin
Like a blush in a cheek.
The soft flesh gives beneath a finger,
Warms within the palm
Warms until it seems to possess
An unfelt heartbeat of its own
Beneath the smooth perfection of its unmarred
And blushing skin,
Warms until it adopts the warmth
Not only of the blood,
But of other inner things, too.
And now the plum, red and sweet,
Is mother, sister, warmed by the same heart,
Cradled in your hand in this quiet hour,
Cradled still as you sleep.

I've always held her to the brightest of lights,
Despite the fights, Ignoring the spite
But sometimes i look up
It's only her making me cry
My soul continuing to dry
I walk forward and sigh...
I ask why...
I wish we could start over.
But all pain does is make you grow older
With each step forward, I get that much colder
I walk around all day, with a chip on my shoulder.
But despite what I say.
Things are still not okay,
I still care,
Which I find unfair
Don't be so kind.
Then fuck with my mind
Love was that something,
I just couldn't find...
But now It seems like I've crossed the line
Those words to fix the sky, I just couldn't find
Those words that made me die, Still travel down my spine
But despite the pain, The soul you've stained.
Once fallen apart, crippled and maimed
Now walking forward,
Mind collected, Emotions tamed.
Blood lost, I'll never be the same.
So whether we are friends or not
I hope that heart of your's will never rot
From now till the day it inevitably sto

Hear you tell me everything that ever mattered to you,
And if you enjoy making out under the moonlight,
I would then like to ask you to do it again.
I would like to cuddle your hand to my chest,
Curl your hair around my sleeves,
Wipe the snow from your eyes,
And flower that little smile to soften your lips.
And I love to feel your soft lips on me,
Emotions behind everything you whisper in my ears,
Happiness in every one of your silly smiles,
Touching the spark in me that is now completely yours.

She's pictureimperfect and happilyneverafter, and he's playing guardian angel.
She already knows all your secrets, and he's got too many of his own to have

She knows just how to take his heart to pieces, and he could shakeherapart

She's made a mess of him, and somehow he still can't look away.
She's unfamiliar to herself, but it's ok because she's learnt him off by heart,

She's clawing at her own skin to find buried silver, while he's happy enough

Just not as beautiful,
Like when you glide your hand across my chest.
And every time you do it I feel light inside,
Just like how every time you kiss me I feel dedicated to comply.
It may be because I love you,
Or maybe your kisses are just that divine.
But whenever we are together,
Our love may simply meant to be combined.

I'm really sorry..
It didn't have to be..
Alone, I leave your place
Running drops down my face
Why did this have to happen
Back then, it was magical
Damn damaging miracle
Forget it, I said
Leaving so many messages
Just for you to hear them
Please see what's going on
Baby, please don't cry
Just dry them off
Heartbeat to Heartache
We are in Tears..
Holding yourself so right
We saw each other across the spotlight
I held you so tight
As you slapped so hard on sight
Pushed away as you ran
So much was done as I'm no longer your man
Knowing now we both can't understand
Even having thoughts in plan
Back then, you were my fan
Fell in love so above when we first held hands
Baby, please don't cry
Just dry them off
Heartbeat to Heartache
We are broken in Tears..
Looking at my reflection
Imagining you touching me
Feeling it so real to see
Resisting is something I can't do
I must let it be

and eye drop sullenness;
I'm falling into you,
filling you with glitter-balloons,
broken cartilage, missing teeth
and feet leaping over fences.
Kisses slip from my wrists
through my fingers.
the gray pasty clouds stopped following me,
but I'm sure they will be back.
Every time I touch
my jaw another white pearl
with red paint slips across the
nerves of my hand
and I just panic.
I always try to put it back
and wonder if I should get braces,
just to save my smile.
I'm running, running, running
and the fences don't end.
