At least not the way you do.
I wish that we weren't such close friends.
I wish I could meet you again.
Start this over.
I wouldn't let you know me like this
you know me too well now.
Because even though I love you,
I'll never say it aloud.
Because i know you know me to well
to ever return that love.
You know I'm a liar.
A thief, a bastard, the lowest form of life.
It doesn't bother you,
because we're friends.
But if we were any closer.
I know what would happen.
And sadly, so do you.
You know me too well.
To ever love me back.
That's a strange thing isn't it?
I guess the only people who loved me.
Learned better as they got to know me.
That's why I'm left like this.
Because people see me for what I am in the end.
That's why I leave, before they find it out, it's happened before.
I can't run from truth forever.
And when it finds me.
We won't even be friends anymore.
And I'll have nothing again.
That's my life,
But still I

it's not going to be my fucking day,
when this guy crouched on the ground snarks up at me,
'Oy! That's my artwork.'
And I look down and see
he's done one of these street drawings on the paving slabs;
a majestic sweeping landscape with fields and
waterfalls and volcanoes and my
size eleven shoe prints stomping across
a mountain range.
'Oops, shit, fuck, sorry.' And I step into the road.
I hadn't seen the tram, which knocked me high
into the air, and I landed face down
on the pavement, both my legs broken, blood pissing
out of my side, adding some much needed colour
to a lake in the man's landscape. I unstick
my face from the paving and notice the guy
is drawing a chalk outline around my body.
'Get the fuck off me, and call an ambulance!' I tell him.
He runs off and evidently he did as I'd asked,
as an ambulance pulls up just eight minutes later.
Two paramedics scramble out and start scanning the road
for something. I try to holler at them but

in our old shoes and tshirts
wet hair, flip flops
peddling back from swimming in the rain
at our beach
people stopped and stared
because we were supermodels
and sometimes ballerinas
when we were thirteen
and we were rockstars
in our biker jackets and skinny jeans
and i did your makeup
and you spiked my hair
and we watched slc punk without understanding
and listened to NOFX
and dyed our hair with kool aid, watching late night cartoons
when we were fourteen
and when we were fifteen
we grew apart
we made plans and you broke them
we made promises and i broke them
and i kept believing
and waiting for a better world
and you decided to take what you could get
and we grew apart
now i'm sixteen
and youre just seventeen
and i dont remember why i loved you

See her sitting in her Citroen, you can spot her from afar.
She is buxom, she is brazen, see her bottom, its amazing,
She is straining at the straplets of her cantilevered bra.
Shes an airship, shes a trawler, still I worship and adore her
Shes a randy landslide riding in her flash French car.
As a goddess, shes the oddest, and shes vulgar and immodest
Shes the empress of breast, she is my sweet Dagmar.
Shes no figment, shes no fragment, shes a fat fridge magnet
and shes sticking like a limpet to that big white door.
You can like it, you can lump it, shes a slattern, shes a strumpet
You can fill her to the limit - shell come begging you for more.
I am smitten, sycophantic; in her panties shes gigantic
As Im straddled, panting, frantic on the pinewood pantry floor.
See her glorious posterior, imperious, superior -

"Nothing my ass. You've been staring in that direction for the past 5 minutes with that lovesick look in your eye. Could it be? Our designated bachelor has found a love interest?" Asuma teased, slapping Kakashi playfully on the back. "So who's the lucky girl...or guy?" Asuma smirked.
Kakashi shot him the nastiest look he could muster beneath his mask and raised up his "Icha Icha" book. "First off, I'm straight as an arrow. And secondly, just drop it." Kakashi sneered.
"Whoa-ho! There's no way I'm dropping it now that you've taken that tone. This girl must be really something! Why don't we just take a look at who this mystery girl is shall we?" Asuma said as he shoved a resisting Kakashi out of the way and looked down the street Kakashi had been staring at. The street was empty except for a pin

You love me
But I can't hold your hand.
You wanna kiss me,
But my lips can't reach your face.
You wanna hug me,
But your father cut my arms.
I'd prefer being one of my drawings
'Cause my drawings can't fall in love with you.
I'd prefer being a blind
'Cause I had not seen your eyes.
I'd prefer having no heart
'Cause I'm gonna die the day you say good bye.
But this world is unfair.
This world kills me.
This love is a lie.
This lie is a hole.
And if you fill my days
you get empty my soul

When you can't love,
When I'm alone,
Tasting my darkness,
Living a joke.

And we know there is nothing we can do.
You love me like the moon loves the sun
And I look at you like the sun looks at the moon.

They will never touch their cheeks.
They will suffer until the end,
'Cause this life is just unfair,
'Cause I didn't make the rules,
'Cause we lost the chance to live,

He will make you nervous for a month before he finally asks you to watch a movie with him. He'll choose the movie and you'll hate it. He will hate national parks but he'll know a lot about Shakespeare and he will seem so much older than you. He will stop calling in the middle of the summer, around the time your friends get back from Europe. He will call you again to apologize and you won't know what to say. He will lie to you. He will kiss you again and he will lend you his jacket on the night that everyone goes to the park and your sister breaks her nose by running in to a boy in the dark. He will teach you to smoke cigarettes. He will be leaving for college soon. He will drunk dial you at least seven times his first semester and tell you that you were the best thing that ever happened to him.He Will Be5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Instead, they lay crooked in your mouth. The thing about teeth is that ours crash together when we kiss but mine have a habit of falling out and my red gums bleed into your mouth.

"Sakura, you should know you aren't ugly, so many boys and men always loved you." A soft comforting familiar voice came from behind her. "But because of your blindness and single mindlessness about Sasuke they all moved on. Well almost everyone."

And the darkness wants to cut my wings again
And everything seems against me
And nothing can heal my pain.
Everybody wants to get my dreams away.
From the stars a queen appeared in my life
A lovely music sounded on her lips.
She said I was trying to find you.
She never thought I'd be alive.
She had a little piece of Heaven on her eyes.
She drew a smile in the middle of my face
I can't forget the things she said to me
She said : "I couldn't live with out you"
She said "I need you by my side"
I said: "I'm just a little warrior without dreams"
She touched my heart and all the pain had gone.
She gave me life and I could see the sun.
And I said: "I just can't believe in this...
Nobody loved me like you do"
And I just could hear she whispered: "I love you"
Take my hands, my lovely queen, now I'm yours
And let me find a sweet Hope in your soul.
Cause this world tried to kill my illusions

we feast upon the fruits of our labor... what labor?
each sin we shoot down,
each seemingly innocent bite of knowledge
oh, adam and eve really did have an addiction
because this blood's too sweet to pass up
my apples are dripping crimson
i don't know if it's from their own red flesh,
or from the peach that is of mine
or if the needles in my hands and knees
are from the twigs or the actual needles
and as the serpant smiles his sweet little hiss
it hits me like the wrath of a god who ignored me for so long

She hides in the shadows, sheilding her face,
this child never laughs, this child never smiles.
Longing the warmth of a mother's embrace,
her body is broken from wandering miles.
Her face stained with tears, from nights when she cries,
she walks throgh the darkness, screaming their names.
Despite all the pain, her hope never dies,
she's searching to find the place whence she came.
They left her behind, did they even care?
She calls to the ones that watch from above.
She falls to the ground as her strength does wear,
all she ever wanted was to be loved.
As she takes her last breath, the light shines through,
because the devil was an angel too...

I am the last ghastly ghost,
glib tongued and glimmering,
in the space beneath the stairs.
My name glows upon your tongue,
gleeful and dreadful
in the dreary dregs of memory -
a keening cacophony
of deadly delights.
You called me here,
made me legion -the languid
languish of laughter,
your new language of the air
and all unearthly promises
pondering their place
in this shallow grave.
Bury me in beauty,
in the bounty of wanton
wonder and I will waste
eternity, a willing wraith to wait
upon your pleasure.
