I grit my teeth in frustration. My whole life, I'd been taking precautions against these kinds of things, for the sole reason that I wouldn't present myself as weak, as stupid. Yet, he'd broken all my walls, all my defences down. He'd gotten in, and made me fall in love. I couldn't stand him. Of course, it wasn't just him. Everything would have been fine if she hadn't decided to step into our business.

Down long distances
Such familiar paths
Of days with
Not these strange
With others around
They aren't real
But she doesn't know
How to feel anymore
Taking over everything

All she will ever
Of the shell

Song: Throw Me Away - Korn
Should've Said NoLily happened to be in a good mood when she walked into the Head Girl's suite Wednesday afternoon. She had just aced a test in Transfiguration (which was far from her best subject), and Amos Diggory, her boyfriend, had promised that he would go for a walk with her around the lake. As she wandered around the room, humming softly and picking up a stray sock here and there, a folded note that sat in the center of her pillow caught her eye. Her humming stopped as she picked up the parchment and read it.Should've Said No4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
What you do with this is your business, but I suggest you go look behind the fourth floor tapestry of six knights hunting.
Lily reread the single sentence several times, trying to figure out who might have written it. It wasn't James and his friends; she could recognize any of their handwriting because of all their detentions and pranks, not to mention all of the annoying letters James sent in an attempt to ask her out.
Eventually though, curiosity won over, and Lily left the room.

From the ashes of a disaster.
Your claws no longer wrapped,
About my aching heart.
You wallow in your misery,
Along with the scum of this lifetime.
Meanwhile, I dance, swaying,
(smiling, at last)
To this freshly beating heart.
This ebony gauze has frayed,
Decayed, falling from my face.
Mourning period finite,
(mine, at least)
Bring back the rouge silk dresses.
Rejoice! Lambs no longer lead to slaughter,
Saviour from the abattoir,
Of day to day life,
(mundane, no more)
Lucifer's cavalry has arrived, to avenge me.
Laughter resounds to the sky,
Those I once loved have returned to my side.
Goodbye to you! Farewell! Adieu!
I am victorious.

Just give me time to think.
Give me space to realize who you are. To my eyes, I need to see you through MY eyes.
Not the ones you painted.
You know? The ones that were deep and emotional.
These ones are plain and naïve.
I need to see with those.
Give me time to put them on and look at you.

Forever there to bring a stop to the cold
Scent mesmerizing, warmth intoxicating
Always wanted, always wished for
Always wished away
Tries to hold on, tries to steal the warmth
Always whisked away by the warmth of Spring
But always there
Wanting what it can't have
Grasping what can't be reached
A weapon in the night
A shield in the light
Always so near
But always destined to be apart

I love writing with my complete being,
As it sets my soul and heart and mind free.
It is as if seeing is believing,
And that is how I will forever be.
Writing is the essence of who I am,
It is always changing and evolving.
Writing is my innocent little Lamb,
It is my entire living's longing.
Writing relieves my life's many stresses,
It makes my friends laugh with pleasure and joy.
They help alleviate my many messes,
It is my childhood chocolate and toy.
Writing is my Romeo, my true soul,
It's my savior, my true love, my noel.

She held the withered rose to her heart...The Stradivarius leaned against the wall in a far corner, waiting...He might be gone but his memories remain...The wind blows through the window on that cold December day turning the pages of an old diary on the table...A page scrawled in red caught the girl's eye...She moved towards it and hesitantly stood near it...She was hesitant of touching something so sacred...When she read the words 'For you,sister'...She started reading the letter that was never given to her...
The world has been harsh towards you...It has tried to shatter you, every moment of your life...I tried to comfort you from the pain but you need someone to fight for you and break the pain before it could touch you...I have never thought I was ever a good brother to you...For one I could never protect you enough...I somehow know that I will not last long...My intuition is telling me I'll last only till May...Maybe you'll find someone to look after you but maybe not...

When she dreamt, all she could hear was music.
Lulling, soothing tunes that could weave through the smallest spaces, relax the tighest muscles. They could jump and slide through her body, a liquid grace.
They could wail in joy, cheer in grief.
They could make the smallest thing signifigant, and the largest, negligible.
That was the music she heard every night. Each time, it was different. One day, it would sing a song of valor, a knight fighting to save his princess. Another, a tale of ignorance: Two dragons clashing into a never ending brawl. Each roar like that of a demon, each cry of like that of a baby.
When she looked up to what she thought were the clouds, they illustrated in smooth paintbrush movements, a callidoscope of brillance.
Flashing colors clutched those clouds, like lava lamps they changed and danced. In flameco, waltz and maraca, fireworks of beauty and sleek elegance, twisting and turning in a never ending whirl.
Like a duet the colors and music would work, in dirges

All the colors began to fade,
all but the beautiful gray in his eyes.
His pale lips moved with a muffled sound.
My eyes began to run and my breath cut short.
I look at him, those eyes so empty.
How can this be?
"I do not understand."
There was no emotion in his eyes,
frozen like his heart.
"I don't love you anymore."

Me and my army of brothers went over the hill,
Shouting all around, sinking in like a drill,
drenched in blood we may be,
But all the fighting is left to me,
Gunfire heard all around,
Too loud to grasp a single sound,
And yet...we still fight
And us, me with my army of brothers...
down we'll fall darkness in all...
even through hell we crawl.
I went over the hill,
Adrenaline flowing, starting a thrill,
drenched in blood I may be,
but fighting is all that's left to me,
The constant screaming being drowned,
by the gunfire's constant pound,
must not stop, must not fall,
made an oath, through hell I'll crawl,
The war, ended it may be,
but its still going inside of me,
all that I've done, all that I've killed,
all the blood that has been spilled...
gunfire's echo, causing a fright,
its all that hear, in the peace of night,
"I must stay normal, I must stand tall,
Guess its time, through hell

And you refuse to hear my song.

Don't cry to me when you're all alone,

I don't need pity for my past,
There's a reason those moments don't last.
Just pray for the next move I make,
And know I'll never be fake.
Completely real and alive,
Eyes are open for the next surprise.
Ready for whatever's going to be thrown at me,
And out of all of us, I'll be free.
You were my everything.
You had my everything.
What happened to us?
In and out of my life you rushed.
You raced to end it,
And I threw a fit.
How could you leave me alone?
Abandoned and lonely in the cold.
And lord behold, there it was.
Another trouble about to unfold.

Why? Why do you keep walking away?
As if I'm not crying out for you?
I thought we loved each other.

comment about the dying day,

How can it be dying,
when I still feel its warmth

Eventually night will wrap me in its

My cautious steps have brought me this far.
To this place where I know
Where I stand
wondering if anyone will come along
and in kindness pause long enough.
Yet, I am not sad
because I believe
that one day I will meet someone
who will once again show me
that I am capable of
It is just that the journey is long
but what journey that has
Tales of old dont speak
of one day adventures
where the hero has instant success;
its all a process.
Its those who can withstand the process

however, I dont believe
that my story will be one heroic
or for ages to come.
Few will know my name or tell my tale.
LoverHe couldn't care less about her adoration for philosophy;Lover4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the way the word 'existentialism' rolled off her tongue
and gave her nostalgia, how solipsism infuriated her,
the way she became fascinated with hail that broke glass.
In fact, he despised how she remembered every bone
in the human body and how she compared them
to other things: "The pelvic girdle is just misshapen wings
and the carpals are like tiny stones you find on beaches."
What he loved was the way her eyes stole his essence,
how his skin would be gnawed on by shivers and tingling,
how she'd masticate potassium and roll her tongue when
she ingested vitamin c.
Quite frankly, she gave him a hard-on.
The Babies in the RiverThe citizens of a small town were having picnic beside a river, when someone noticed that a baby was floating by. The baby was sputtering, barely able to keep its head above water, and at once someone jumped into the river to save the child. But while he was busy saving the first baby, more and more children appeared in the water, floating down past the town's people from some distant point upstream.The Babies in the River4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Now, the town's people were kind-hearted and generous men and women, and not the sort to hesitate to help someone in need. Therefore, they all waded into the river to pull the children from the water, but the drowning babies just kept coming, and as hard as they tried the town's people couldn't save them all. Night began to fall, making it even harder to rescue so many babies, and more and more of them floated by unsaved or sank under the darkening waters.
Finally, one of the town's people crawled out of the water. And he said, "This isn't working. I'm going to go upstream, and I'm going t

Popping its head over the horizon
Rubbing it's eyes
Its Light lazily sneaks into my window
And prods at my eyelids
Hoping to raise them from their slumber once again
The beams, they want to dance with me
But morning has never been my time
But that doesn't stop it, not at all
So as the sun lumbers higher
More and more of its rays come
Covering me now with a bright blanket
It's time to get up it says, annoyed
While I think of installing curtains
Though it won't happen, my windows just don't accept them
It's a slow process
As time doesn't like the morning either
But it's just gotta keep going on
Eternity seems to pass me by
Until my hands grasp onto my creamy salvation
It's aroma sweet and bitter
It's my true sun, that delight
It wakes me up without prodding
And it starts up my day the right way every time

Every leaf on evey tree heard God say:
'Her heart will beat to love him '
And every light breez, every sun light,
And every heart inside every life smiled

We met before the book of destiny,
Before the heart knew how to live and die
