My Words Are All I HaveHer eyes were brown and he liked brown more than green or blue because brown eyes were always so underappreciated. She thought they were ugly and boring and that he was crazy for liking them so much and maybe he was but her eyes didn't have to be vibrant or the color of the high tide; he only cared that they looked at him the same way he looked at her.My Words Are All I Have4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She had piercings and a tattoo and his parents never would have approved of her but him and his parents never really were on the same page anyways. She was the only person who could ever cheer him up and if you knew him, you would know that making him smile was an accomplishment in itself. She turned his life upside down but he grew to love the view.
She left him when he finally learned how to love her but she no longer thought his words were pretty and thought his metaphors were just a way to try and cover up all of his insecurities. Maybe they were but they're all he has ever had and he wasn't willing to give them up as easily as she g
The Story of a GirlI was 9 and you were 11 when you first told me that Santa wasn't real. But you believe in empty promises and fairies and happy endings, so why should I believe you?The Story of a Girl4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I was 13 and you were 15 when we shared our first kiss under some mistletoe. (I still believed in Santa by the way.) It was everything I had ever dreamed of. You shrugged it off like it was just another of the thousands of kisses with dozens of boys you had shared before.
I was 16 and you were 18 and you were leaving me to go to college. The night before you left, we made love for the first time. I was shy and you seemed to know what you were doing. You traced a line from my chest to my stomach with your lips and pressed your fingers against my jutting ribs. (I thought if maybe I was skinnier, you would finally want me. Maybe it had worked?) Moans and passionate whispers stained my sheets and sometimes when I fall asleep at night, I can still hear your shallowed voice.

We first bumped into each other at a sandwich shop. I mistook you for one of my brothers friends and spoke for what seems like ages, (realistically no more than 30 seconds) before you stopped me and informed me that we had never met before. I bit my lip and turned bright red as your lips bent upward forming a smile. You assured me I wasnt that red and there was no need to be embarrassed. (Dont take me for a fool, even though Im just a fool for you) You then convinced me to buy your sandwich, since I obviously knew you so well. (I always was
Secret 7I have Malusdomesticaphobia, one of the longest named and possibly weirdest phobias ever. For those of you who don't know what it is, which I'm assuming is the vast majority, Malusdomesticaphobia is the fear of all apples. The sound of someone cutting into or biting into an apple gives me the chills and just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. I hate being around apples. Just ew.

She was the girl with the burnt orange skin and blonde highlights. Her skin emitted UV rays from too many trips to the tanning bed and she changed her hair color more often than the calendar changed months. She only wanted to fit in but it just made her stand out even more.
She was the girl who would always use cherry lip-balm because she knew it was his favorite flavor. Her kisses made his knees weak and her will power too so one kiss would turn to two, three, and four. Then a week later she was pregnant and everyone was calling her a whore.
She was the girl with wings made of scotch-tape and printer paper. She tried to fly when she was 7 but she ended up just falling off the roof and breaking her collarbone and right arm. Her wings were torn to shreds and so were her hopes of becoming somebody's angel. She swears she will find better material and a more suitable launching pad and one day she will flutter instead of crash into the floor.

We used to meet at the coffee shop each morning to sip on our liquid courage, knowing it was the only way we would ever survive our days. You would stare at me with your mocha colored eyes and smile at me with your raspberry lips. I still remember your taste as your lips met mine as if we last kissed yesterday, but the truth is I havent kissed, even seen you in weeks. Youre like a distant memory to me and Im starting to wonder if you ever even existed. Maybe youre just a cruel trick of my mind; an attempt to fill my otherwise empty life with even a sliver of happiness. I promised myself that I would never lose hold of reality, but I fear that Ive finally drifted off the face of this earth and b

The twinkle in your eyes is now gone. However, unlike a star it didnt explode and experience rebirth, becoming something even more beautiful and intoxicating. (Your twinkle merely burnt out, ceased to exist. It flat-lined like this mistake of a relationship)
Your smile still makes me feel uneasy, but now for a completely different reason. The butterflies anxiously awaiting their break into the daylight are now replaced with ash and dust, supplying me with a constant feeling of nausea. (Anxiety becomes regret; shyness turns to distaste; a blinding love decays to a deafening hatred)

Your tears fall like the first snow of winter, making me freeze in place; unable to do anything but sit by idly and watch you break into a million pieces (the beauty of winter's first snow) happen right before my guilt-ridden eyes.
Sometimes I'll stare into your eyes and watch them fill up with hurt, just so I will have someone to relate with. (You broke my heart just as much I ended up breaking yours) You're the one who taught me I could never be perfect, no matter how hard I tried. You showed me just how imperfect and unwanted I really am.

You made me grow up (faster than I ever wanted to) from the innocent, shy little boy to the hardened, heartbroken mess of a man set before you now.

You spell out I love you on my arm.
My lips touch yours in a smitten reply,
As I hope I will never bring you harm.
I still remember the day we first met,
How I was speechless and at loss for breath.
There is not a moment which I regret,
The loss of you would surely be my death.
You assure me I will always be yours,
That nothing will ever tear us apart.
You look into my eyes as the rain pours,
How soothing rain is to my aching heart.
Let us fly into the sky on a wing,
As we await what our future will bring.

I saw your face and only managed an, Im sorry.
To this day Im still at loss as to what you said in reply.
I thought I would never see you after that day,
Never be able to get that close to an angel again.
Then two weeks later you saw me across the street,
And to my surprise you ran over as if we were best friends.
Your kindness has always baffled me,
Im unable to grasp such a simple concept.
You somehow remembered my name,
Inviting me to head to a movie with you.
At first, I tried to speak but no words came forth,
You could tell I was embarrassed as you grabbed my hand.
Without my reply you pulled me away with you,
We ran off to the theatre giggling the whole way there.

Ride through space on shooting stars.
Let us fly into the summer night,
Counting the planets as we speed by.
I wish we could travel back in time,
And make friends with the dinosaurs.
We can draw pictures on cave walls,
And swim with the creatures of the deep.
I want us to travel the world together,
Making memories everywhere we go.
We can climb the Eiffel Tower,
Fight with the gladiators in Rome.
I wish you would have been there when I cried,
When I needed you more than life itself.
Let us never let it happen again, never again,
I cant imagine living through the loneliness twice.
I want to know that you will always be mine,
That nothing will ever rip us apart.
We can go get our hearts chained together,
This way we can never roam too far from the other.
I wish that I could read the future so I wouldnt worry,
Worry that you may be my biggest regret, not greatest endeavor.

How quickly I started to call you mine.
Even now you still give me butterflies,
Sometimes I wish they would carry me to you.
Ive never had someone call me cute,
Or forgive me for my many faults.
You see right past everything else,
Your gaze focuses on me and me alone.
I pray every night that you are real,
That this isnt just some cruel illusion.
The loss of you would be the death of me,
You are my life now, nothing else matters.
You are my shooting star, my wish come true,
Proof that there is someone for everybody.
I still remember when you first saw my face,
Hidden in the background, too shy to mutter a word.
You werent my fate or my destiny,
For this was something far greater.
You are the last piece to my puzzle,
The happily-ever-after to my fairy tale.

(I just want to feel you, so I know that you are real.)
You stole my heart from the very beginning; before you said a word, looked into my eyes, or even smiled. I was in love with you before i even knew your name or anything about you. Now i know more than I ever wanted to know about you and hate you for that very fact. (I wish we could have put us on pause and enjoyed what we had. Now we have nothing and I regret ever looking your way.)
I sit here with my stomach tied in knots and chills rushing down my spine from thoughts of you; not because you make me nervous, or shy, or make me blush, but because you make me sick. I feel like the breath has been knocked out of me and I can't get it back. (You knocked me out and I've yet to regain consciousness.)

He was the boy with the charcoal colored skin. His lips consisted of burning embers and small pieces of driftwood and he didn't like smiling because he didn't want to splinter the corners of his mouth.
He was the boy who didn't wish on shooting stars because he believed in the magic of words. He wanted to marry a writer because he wanted someone who could make him smile with their words since nobody had ever been that to him. He would often speak in metaphors and leave the interpretations up to you.
He was the boy with wings made of torn sails and splintered masts. He learned how to fly when he was 6 by watching a dove's flight pattern but when he was 12 he was in a tsunami of mixed feelings and changes he didn't understand, leaving him incapable of flying anymore. He vows one day he will go back out to sea, and saltwater dreams and jellyfish tentacles will mold his wings back to what they once were.

My face grows flushed.
With what to say I fumble,
Never knowing I could blush.
We stare up into the skys bright lights,
Following the paths of planes with entwined hands.
Let us live free, knowing we have plenty more nights,
We have time to spare, not needing to make plans.
We see the city lights burning,
As we lay in arms atop the tallest hill.
With your warm touch, I feel my insides turning,
As I wipe away your tears, mine begin to spill.
I cant help but worry one day you will leave,
For you are perfect and I am merely broken.
I never know what to say and sometimes I forget to breathe,
You remember every moment, each word I have spoken.
The moon soaks up our embrace,
As we float off into the unknown.
We leave silently, not leaving a trace,
Holding on so we wont be alone.

I stare up at the stars and wonder to myself if they are staring back as eagerly as I am. Sometimes I close my eyes and breathe in everything around me.
I flick my wrists back and forth imagining I'm painting a picture consisting of the most vivid colors one can find. Filled with melancholy blues and a simple stroke of greens and yellows and purples all mixed together like my 1st grade art project.
Sometimes I feel swallowed up by the world and just place my ear against the ground and listen to the rhythmic beating of the earth below. Every now and then, if I'm lucky, I can hear whispers of the world's best-kept secrets.
Last night, the sky shot down quarter-size hail for half an hour. I sat there and let it pelt me, but don't worry, I'm perfectly fine. Any damage done to my body is minimal to the pain I already feel.

Serving as portals into our aged minds,
Glimpses of love, pain, and a heart which tore,
A heart still shattered to bits, one that pines.
Our cold, icy forced breaths fog glass windows,
As your dry lips struggle to meet my own,
Finally making ends meet, my heart froze,
Your kiss fills in the pieces, a heart sewn.
You once promised me the world would be mine,
In hopes it was enough to keep me here,
With you in my arms we will be just fine,
You are my world, left with nothing to fear.
As our bodies grow warm, the night goes by,
Take my hand, stare with me into the sky.

A flash of light jump starts my battered heart,
Then she grabbed my hand, looked me in the eye.
