This poem was a bit more cryptic then what I usually write, and I'm happy with that. I got a chance to use a bunch of uncommon words in this piece of writing as well, which was pretty cool. But anyways.. this poem wasn't started with anything in particular in mind. I just had a title. What I personally put into this poem I intend to keep a secret. But I hope you find something in it.
I had a lot of fun with this poem, although it carries a more serious note. I hope you enjoy it.
"(y/n)!" A certain perky voice called your name running up to you on the sidewalk. You slowed your pace so that Nagisa could have a chance to catch up to where you were walking. "When are we going to work on the project (y/n)-chan?" Looking over at you and into your (e/c) eyes he asked you the question you had been dreading. The project the two of you were partnered up to do was due in a month, but you liked to get things done as soon as possible. "Well uh..." The problem wasn't that you didn't like Nagisa, but because you did. You had a crush on him since the beginning of the year and when you were partnered with him you didn't know what to do. You were on the shy side, and even more so around him, and you had only talked to Nagisa a few times but that consisted of the project and other subjects, but he considered you a friend. Only a friend. "(y/n)-chan!!" The perky blonde said stepping in front of you blocking your way. "Why don't I come over to your house now (y/n)-chan?" He said perking his shoulders up. Before you could answer he held your hand in his, making a light pink come across your face. "Oh please (y/n)-chan!! Please! Please!" The word please kept coming out of his mouth like a broken record, as he kept pleading you to come over. "Fine! C'mon Nagisa-chan" You said taking your hand out of his. Widening his eyes a smile had formed across his face, he was practically skipping the whole time to your house. House after house, you turned a corner and arrived at yours. While you were getting the keys out of your pocket, you were oblivious to Nagisa looking intently at your face, admiring every single detail about you. Nagisa took off his shoes and was in your house as soon as you opened the door. "Mom?" You said removing your flats and putting the keys on the table next to the door, waiting for a response. "Guess she's not here..." You said wondering where the all too excited boy had gone. "(y/n)-chan! Your room is so pretty!" Rushing upstairs and to your room you saw him sitting on your bed. "Nagisa-chan what are you doing in here?!" "Where else are we gonna work?" You sighed and took Nagisa's hand dragging him downstairs. "We're going to work in the living room, since my mom isn't here" Nagisa chuckles at you. "What, do you not trust me in your room (y/n)-chan?" He said sitting his hand on his hip. "Or is it he because of something else" He said moving closer to you. A slight blush had swiped across your cheeks. "Let's just get started" Taking notes out of your book bag you sat down. "So, what's the plan (y/n)-chan?" He said taking place next to you, crossing his legs and looking at you cheerfully. --- Half an hour into it you barely got anything done. You had made the mistake to give Nagisa sugar. "(y/n)-chan! (y/n)-chaaaaannn!!!!" Nagisa whined as he tugged at your arm. "NAGISA-CHAN FOR THE LOVE OF WATER PLEASE JUST SIT DOWN AND TRY TO CALM YOURSELF" You yelled as he looked at you, making his jumpy exterior crumble. "I'm sorry (y/n)-chan..but can we take a break?" He said sitting on the ground looking up at you with puppy-dog eyes, you hadn't even started but since Nagisa's eyes were piercing into yours you couldn't say no. "Ugh, fine Nagisa-chan, what do you want to do?" You asked, sitting down in front of him. You were surprised by what he did next. He ran past you and upstairs, probably to your room. You sighed and slumped up stair after a stair. "Nagisa, what are you doing?" You asked wearily and opened your door further to find Nagisa rummaging through your dresser. "NAGISA-CHAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING" You said storming over to him and closed the drawer that held your clothes, and undergarments. "I was only looking at your clothes (y/n)-chan" He said innocently, honey dripping from his voice, it sounded so sweet. "Sure Nagisa..what did you want to do in my room?" He sat on your bed and scooted up and leaned into your pillows. "Anything but schoolwork" Nagisa said picking up your remote and turning the TV on. "But, wasn't the point of you coming over to do schoolwork?" You said confused. "Not necessarily" He said laying on his belly and propped his head on his arms. At that moment you heard the door open and a voice call your name. "Mom?"
Why do you feel like you have to lie? Why can't you say what you truly feel inside? Can't you see that there's no reason to hide from me, whatever your true feelings happen to be?
To me, you have no obligation, I know where I stand. I know I'm just an opportunity here to take away the sting of lonliness, willing to be your toy, at least for a little while.
I have needs too, ones only you can fulfill, so come lay with me, and I'll kiss your troubles away.
I don't mind being used, at least that's what I tell my heart. It's happened before, but then I was stupid enough to think of it as and wish for more.
I'm wiser now. I know not to expect or hope for anything else. So please, don't bullshit me, don't make this into anything more than what it is. There's no point lying, I know you don't see me as anything but a friend with added benefits.
Through my eyes, The abyss flows. A gentle breeze, A stream of shadow. The masking cover, The cloak of night, It hides my actions, And shows your fright. This revealing light Shall be snuffed out. And your pleas muffled, Every single shout. I come for you, And I come for your soul. Clothed in darkness, To swallow you whole. I am the end, I am your fear. Yet your frightened breathing Is all you hear. I am death.
You carefully observed and timed Nagisa as he swam his practice laps. He had kindly asked you to watch and time him hours prior, to which you humbly accepted. He was your boyfriend, after all.
The blond-haired male hoisted himself out of the water, signaling you to stop the timer. He walked over to you and looked down, smiling.
"How did I do, (Name)-chan?" He grinned. You smiled back and held up the stop watch for him to see.
"You did great, Nagisa-kun! You've gotten faster since you were last timed!" You answered gleefully. Nagisa laughed and wrapped his arms around you, catching you by surprise.
"Thank you for helping me out, (Name)-chan!"
You giggled and pat his back. "Any time! I can't say no to my boyfriend, can I?"
Nagisa pulled away from you, hands placed firmly on your shoulders. Your (e/c) eyes were locked with his own dark pink ones, causing you to slightly blush. It was silent. Everyone had gone home before you arrived, so it was only you and your bubbly boyfriend.
You remained lost in your thoughts until you felt slight pressure on your lips. You snapped out of your trance and looked at your boyfriend, eyes widened. He opened his eyes and pulled away, placing a hand behind his head.
"Sorry for surprising you, (Name)-chan." He apologized."You just looked so cute, being lost in your thoughts!"
You blushed and looked up. "That's okay. Besides, I didn't say that I didn't like it..."
Nagisa's face lit up as he brought you in for another kiss. This time, you were fully aware of what was happening, and placed your hand on his neck to deepen the kiss.
Things heated up quickly between the two of you, resulting you to be pushed against the bench under the blond boy. His strong hands were tangled in your (h/c) locks while your hands were placed firmly on his back.
"Nagisa, are you still here? I left-"
You both froze and looked towards the door, finding a very uncomfortable Rei.
"S-s-sorry! I didn't mean to i-intrude!!" Rei stuttered as he quickly scrambled out the door. Nagisa sighed and pushed himself off of you, making you pout.
"I think Rei-chan left his bag." Nagisa thought aloud. You looked up at him and nodded in agreement.
"I guess I'll take it to him then," you stated. Nagisa gave a quick "okay" as you grabbed the bag and stood up.
"Sorry we couldn't continue..." You blurted out. Nagisa smiled and waved it off.
"Don't worry about it, (Name)-chan!"
Nagisa walked closer to you, bringing his chest up to yours. He pecked your lips and placed his forehead on yours.
"I'll go with you. Then..."
He placed his hands on your hips and leaned into your ear.
"We can continue when we reach your house."
Your face quickly turned a deep shade of red, almost as red as Gou's hair.
"How are you gonna make it past my parents, Nagisa?"
Help me, Hold me, Save me from myself. Or, When I turn away, Will I feel your once practiced blade, Recently dormant, Yet meticulously cared for, Bite into The old, fading scars Spidering Across the pale flesh of my back?
