I don't know if this will even reach you, but I guess if you're reading it, it has. I just finished watching "Dear John". I told myself that if I chose a sad movie to watch, I'd have an excuse as to why I was crying. If mom asked, or something. I wanted to cry, not soak my face, chest, hair and pillow in tears, and choke on unstoppable sobs. That was the saddest movie I've ever seen. Perhaps I should have read the synopsis before renting it: "While John is on leave in his hometown, he finds Savannah, a college student visiting the town. Although love was unexpected, it doesn't mean they didn't find it. With the knowledge of John having to leave for the army, their love still lives....Troubles invade and their love put on hold. One cannot bear it anymore; can the other?" Needless to say, it hit a little too close to home. The end is what got me, though. I don't want to give too much away, so I'll only say that I'd never be that kind of girl. It only reinforces my decision tha

His pupils are wide, boyish face frightened, as black nails scratch up and down pale arms, dotted with tell-tale track marks. His eyes look feverish and afraid, glittering in the dim room, "They're coming for me." his voice is a spider's whisper and his glance scurries across the room, terrified blues running wall to wall.
"No, no." I try to assure him, "You're safe. It's just fine, Jamie." I let my warm hands caress his upper arms, his shoulders, desperately trying to calm him. He only jerks away from my touch, eyes rolling wildly, searchingly.
"Jamie!" his name is torn from my jagged throat as an agonized cry.
His laughter, usually warm and infectious sounds dangerous as it floats back to me, dodging the speeding cars between us. His feet look too wide for the frail metal railing and he sways unsurely.
A horn screams angrily at him as a truck whizzes by, and suddenly his arms, spread wide

Rhythmically, his heart beats beneath my ear, a sound that usually calms me, pulling me into a deep sleep, his bare chest acting as my pillow. But I stare at the ceiling, unblinkingly now as he sleeps on, utterly unaware. I don't want to admit it, but I can feel it sneaking up on me again. It's that nameless feeling that sneaks its way into my chest, wrapping its steely talons around my lungs until I have to struggle just to breath. I haven't felt it since I came here. The nightmares have been virtually nonexistent with his arms wrapped around me. But it's coming. Just like it always has. For as long as I can remember, this horrific sensation has gripped me. I used to try and explain to him over the phone what it feels like to bottle your emotions, to swallow the lump in your throat. He promised me it would go away. "In my arms, it'll be so much better.

A forced night off. Li didn't like being idle. She preferred to keep an eye on the usual suspects rather then enjoying herself. It couldn't be helped though, when a Clan Leader sends you out, you didn't get the chance to argue. It was worse when that Leader happened to be your father. With a little shrug, Li cautiously approached the Club from the Parking Garage. All of her Enforcer training warned her to look around and keep an eye out for an ambush.
She let her mind reach out, Mike and Marie were near the back of the garage. Those two were always in the thick of some sort of trouble. She had a hunch that they were up to something and she wanted to be sure it wasn't important.
"Dammit, she should be here by now." She heard Mike think, That bitch stood me up.
Nevermind, Li thought as she rolled her eyes, "Probably another rendezvous that went awry. I wish those two would grow up."

My pale fingers linger on your name, inked on the flawless paper as indecision overtakes me. Flooding through my body and surging through my veins. "No." I whisper hoarsely, my words bouncing off the walls and echoing into the surrounding darkness. It would be pointless to change my mind now. It was too late for that. Swiftly, I crease the letter in three, sliding it unthinkingly into the envelope. There was no time to think. If I paused to consider what I was about to do, I would talk myself out of it. Shuddering, I draw this silver hilted dagger across my open palm. Glinting rubies shimmer in the faint candlelight and I slowly tilt my shaking hand. My precious blood spills over, splashing onto the parchment. I don't seal my confession with a wax stamp, but with the scarlet blood that pours readily from my hand. I bring th01.

like an actor in a play.
You swear that everything's fine
until they look away.
Such a perfect mask,
so that you don't have to try.
But when everyone turns away,
what you want, is to die.
Struggle to make yourself breathe
and wipe the tears from your face,
when all you need is compassion
and a little bit of faith.
You can't stand to look weak,
'less in your mirror or your bed.
Why don't they hear your pleas;
the screams of demons in your head?
Teased by vultures in the sky,
that bed you to leave this world.
Cross your legs, curve your lips,
play your part of the perfect girl.
Beckoned by the cloaked ones,
inviting you to your slaughter.
But you musn't, you can't,
you have to be the perfect daughter.
Constantly drowning in your tears,
plagued by grief and strife.
You couldn't even play the star
in your own life.
You're nothing but an understudy
dressed in eyeliner and black.
Let the real actors take over,
while you submit to the demon attack.

Celle qui me fait ainsi oser le face à face.

Et pour qui je secrète des sentiments sincères.
Non, ne souriez pas, on ne rit pas de tout

Et plus je vous regarde et plus c'est évident !

Longtemps, j'ai quitté les musées de bonne heure. Parfois, l'on avait à peine le loisir de m'informer de la présence d'une quelconque exposition, que l'on s'adressait derechef à mon ombre.

How I Measure LoveYou asked me how much I love you.How I Measure Love4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
On a scale from one to ten.
I whispered, "Infinity."
Because if I took a brush,
dipped in our love,
and painted a line made of whispered wishes,
and passionate kisses,
and tried to measure how much I love you,
it would stretch to the outer reaches of the universe.
And everyone would see that line,
twisting and curving,
in shades of happy tears and butterfly wings,
and say that someone crazy must have spent all that time painting it.
Or someone in love.
It would cross oceans on the backs of fish,
and cover cities, countries, and continents,
eventually breaching the atmosphere,
to play connect the dots with the stars.
It would ricochet off comet tails,
and weave playfully between Saturn's rings.
It would paint the universe in colors,
and pale pastels,
that people could see, when they looked up into the night sky.
Like the northern lights,
our love could light up the Heavens.
It would paint the tips of wheat plants,

Pour les emprisonner, les empêcher de fuir...

Les mots forment un manège qui tournoie lentement,
Qui divertit mon âme jusqu'au soleil couchant.
Quelquefois je me prends à tous les attraper
Et à me mettre à les coucher sur le papier...

Et faire naitre en moi milliers de sentiments
Qui hanteront mon cur jusqu'au beau jour naissant.

I've spent my whole life just thinking.
When are the good times going to come, and the bad going to go?
There has been many of heartache, and heartbreaks.
Things like they were way back then
were never as strong as they are now.
Of course my emotions are nothing but the same.
I remember all those things that I use to say
The things that those people use to do...and how they are gone now.
It's all gone. There is nothing left.
That is what I tell everyone around me.
But I know they see it too.
No one just ever says anything about it.
I thought that love was not suppose to walk away.
I thought that you couldn't help who you love.
Yet I find myself losing what matters most.
and yet I find myself thinking like this all over again.
I want to be the believer
Like an angel from above
I've lost pieces of me from the people in my life.
Like an angel from above
I want to be that believer
Like an angel from above
I want to find those pieces that I lost so long ago.

Blood and mud are covering his face
Wounds are all over his body

But he's trapped like in a maze

But his mind is unstoppable
Motivated by his lost brothers
But pain is sticking like a thorn in his chest
His eyes are full of tears
By seeing all these young men
Laying next to each other
With on their faces their worst fears
Not knowing there will be a tomorrow
He's trying to remind who he was
A son, a father, a brother and a friend
But thinking of his past fills him with sorrow
Pain is stuck in his head
Like the unspoken memories
That keeps replaying in his mind
And chasing him till dead

We should grow gills,

Do you secretly have gills?

Arent you nervous still?

who really believe in something.

But we can't find our peace-
Leave us alone-
I know we are damned-
Let us go-
Silence destroyed by screams-
Just let us go-
We can not be saved-
And we'll never find our peace-
Devil will dance on our graves and through the maze-
Leading through our dreams-
Listen to the pale echoes of today-
The song is over, now we will die-
Our voice already fades-
Our time has come to say goodbye-
Listen as all the raindops fall on us-
Washing away all your fears-
Please don't cry-
We won't find our peace-

Once upon a time in mid winter, when the snowflakes were falling like feathers from heaven, the beautiful queen Pegasus sat sewing at her window, which had a frame of black ebony wood. As she sewed, she looked up at the snow and pricked her finger with her needle. Three drops of blood fell into the snow. The red on the white looked so beautiful, that she thought, "If only I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as this frame." Soon afterward she had a little son that had hair as white as snow, and she was content. They called the child Ryou Bakura.
"Oh bugger. He'd better stay Ryou!" Bakura said warningly.
Now the queen was the most fabulous woman in all the land, and very proud of her fabulousness. She had a mirror, which she stood in front of every morning, and asked:
