There are fragile words
Which form outlines
Of a vulnerable life.
In the autumn colors
Disturbed by the noise
Of the rain on windows.
At the end of the day, the somber
Reality becomes a burden.
This woman is invaded by anxiety
Her tired spirit, on the alarming
Silence of the language, is slowly
Dying on this kiss of the other one.
He, who believes with his smile
To understand everything
by watching at her crying.
He, with his stupid words, he hammers
The commonness with his unsightly facies,
His absent glance in front of her who doubts
In the gust of feelings.
Quiet, he falls

And that we all could.
But some painful cavities,
Stay without ever filling up.
I can't help everyone fill their hearts,
I'm occupied already with my dearest few,
One of which is my own.
So if I didn't try to save you,
Don't think I didn't want to,
You just never asked.
Not Meant to be BrokenAnother day. Another moment of doubt and pain. It hurts to walk, but you do it anyway. Because you have to.Not Meant to be Broken2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Feeling like there's no way back, I know how you feel. The end is near, but still so far away. You never know what's going to happen, do you? Every day is a challenge. Every day means more pain, but it is also another day you survive. And day by day, that's how we live, isn't it? Day by day, and before you know it, your life is over.
So maybe it is okay. You take that step, and you will take the walk. The pain may not fade, may never fade, but you live. And you continue to live. And maybe the pain will make room for something else. An

I wanted to live
Cause I knew I could
Cause the joys where to great

I hate it
Cause there is no reason
Cause there is to much negative

I can't keep going
I can't stay here
I don't want it anymore
Let me go
I'll crawl away
Into some dark and dusty corner
I'll won't be of hinder
Cause that is all I cause
Trouble, no joy
I want to leave
And start over
But not that it is possible
I just sit here, and watch what happens
Cause that is all I can do
And still I'm not good at it
I'm nothing but a piece of trash

Smile with her

Can you accuse me
For the miracle has happened

I have seen what love can do to people.
It can take a person and give them wings to soar above the clouds.
It can make you feel invincible.
It can fill your heart with a pleasant warmth.
I have seen so many people fall so deeply and passionately then land in the arms of another.
Yet I have seen people fall and land onto slabs of concrete.
I have seen men have their wings ripped out of their backs.
And I have seen them fall so hard and so fast and crash into a million pieces.
I have seen women become so fooled and so blinded, that they did not see that they were headed straight for a cliff.

I walked into the cave once the horse had signified that he would stay with me. I had never been fond of dark places, especially dark places I had never been before. I let my eyes adjust to the dim light and found a small alcove where the wall of the cave was naturally indented. I crawled into the small space, supporting my head with my arms, and curled into a tight but comfortable position. I sighed as I watched the horse lower himself to the ground.
Oh, horse thank you for being so kind to me, I said, studying the horses face. I know it must be tiresome for you, but I truly appreciate it.
