I am talking to her saying our roads

look what we remember of Rome,
all pavements and temples
arranged like vertebrae in dirt

and as I say this, it occurs to me that in a Mexican bar
in Florence I might disappear

through an eyeless crowd,

take me from the marble block lift me out!)
to laugh hysterically; she is pulling me,
her warmth comes breathlessly from the air;
we are foreigners,
we are rain. (I am inventing this,
all of this happened elsewhere, another night)
her face turns to laugh illuminated
and everything else wobbling is blue
and forgotten; lifeboats drawn away
from our bodies that are continents
moving full with rice and squash and sins
named in small homes before saints and fire;
listen. I was not there by the long bar
when everyone turned and pulled us

Renji trudged on reluctantly towards his 'dear friend', Ichigo's house. He watched in frustration as people stopped to stared at him or whisper, most likely something crude, about his appearance. Now that Renji thought about it, his cloths were awfully different from everyone else's and he was sure no one around here had bright red hair and tattoos on their face...
Well, he couldn't do anything about that. That's just the way he was but his cloths now those were a different story. He couldn't help but grimace when he looked down at his yellow shirt and the face of Chappy the rabbit was staring up at him with it's beady little eyes.

Renjis thoughts were interrupted by that same annoying voice hed come to know so well over his time in the human world. Renji turned around, only to be confronted by none other than Ichigo Kurosaki. The boy slung his book

I am gathering flowers for my girl.
She waits beneath the cherry tree,
couched among the leaves upon the grass.
Her beauty is no small thing,
and through the shady boughs
Summer's breath turns the twist of her braid.
The sun is sweeping clear the morning,
turning over slowly into midday
before expiring into unseeing darkness.
These garnered blooms still hardy though,
despite the shortened moments of their existence,
they will colour the chestnut hair I love.
In truth, I cannot stem this smile,
this attitude of quiet pleasure;
she has distilled it like music.
I am gathering flowers for my girl.
She waits beneath the cherry tree,

To you, my Taichou...Renji sat at his desk, writing slowly on a sheet of white paper.To you, my Taichou...7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was rare that anyone see Renji actually at his desk.
There was a point in time where he didn't even know he had a desk.... and now he was working at it, intensly scribing.
He set his brush down, picking up the quickly drying sheet.
"Perfect." He said to himself.
He glanced over the paper, reading what he had wrote.
'You're beautiful... more than I could think.... more than what I know. I long for you... burn for you... ache for you. Never leave me... or ever harsher still, never command me to leave you.'
Renji's smile brightened as he looked over more of it.
'I need you every moment of my life... the closer I get to you, the more I wish to be nearer. Stay with me always... and never...never...go.'
A sigh escaped him.
"As if... I could ever let him see this..."
"Let who...see what...Renji?"
Renji spun around, face in shock.
He stood up at once and bowed to the man.

Tom sat anxiously outside the emergency room. The doctors had treated his arm and told him to rest, but he was too worried about Abby. He had left his room and came here to see what the news was. When he had arrived, her situation was critical. That was an hour ago.
Finally the surgeon came out, looking tired and exhausted.
"Is she...?" he couldn't bring himself to say dead.
"No, no. It was touch and go for awhile there, but she's going to make it." the surgeon said reassuringly.
He breathed a sigh of relief, "Thank goodness. May I see her?" he asked.
"Well, right now we're moving her to her a room. Once we get her up there you can, but only for a few minutes." the surgeon told him.
They had him wait outside her room, while they got her situated. After a few minutes he was allowed in. She looked as white as snow, only a shade darker than the sheets she lay on. Several wires were attached to her along with an IV. She smiled weakly when she saw him. He went to her side and t
It Takes Chemistry Chap.4 RealSzayel had decided, after his little rant about everything, that Ishida must feel the exact same way as Renji, because everyone except Halibel (who ended up moving later anyway) felt that way, so why wouldnt Ishida? He spent the time in chemistry class the next day brooding, a menacing frown etched onto his face. Even Grimmjow knew enough to stay away from him today, but he would probably taunt him for twice as long tomorrow. Ishida spared a glance at him, but upon seeing the scowl that was, in Ishidas opinion, more of a cute pout, he had turned back towards Professor Aizen and scribbled more notes down on his paper.It Takes Chemistry Chap.4 Real7 years ago in Teen More Like This
However, that was two hours ago. Now, Szayel was sitting at his desk, copying problems out of his section five review (the one he had missed the question on in the test) and answering them, one after the other.

"We went to a really fancy Italian restaurant and had dinner on the roof." she said.

Abby sighed and threw a dress back into her closet. Tonight was the night of the movie premiere. She was really looking forward to it. Only she had one problem; she didn't have anything to wear. She grabbed her cell phone off of her side table and dialed Emma's number.
"Hello!" said Emma's cheerful voice from the other end.
"Hey, Emma. I'm going to a movie premiere tonight with Tom and I have nothing to wear..." she told her.
"Say no more. I'll pick you up in a little bit and we'll go shopping. Okay?" Emma said.
"Thanks Emma. I owe you one." she said.
"Yeah, but if you tell me everything about your date we'll call it even."
She laughed, "Okay. See you soon."
She hung up the phone and then went into the kitchen. She grabbed a banana and as she was biting into it, her phone rang. She quickly swallowed the banana and went back to get her phone.

She tried to open her eyes like she tried a thousand times but failed. She knew she couldnt but kept trying. She knew she was asleep. The dreams in her kept on coming during it. Faces were a blur and voices she felt like she knew but couldnt figure out who they were. She felt trapped. She stretched her arms out to feel a soft kind of wall in front of her. She pushed on it and soon enough it had broken she had landed on her face onto the concrete floor. She tried to get up from the ground only to fall back down. She was able to lift her head up and then open her eyes only to be blinded by sunlight. She quickly scanned that place until her eyes landed on a pink rose at the door. A pink rose with a blue ribbon on it. She then thought back to her dreams and saw a man who wore a blue ribbon.

Tears overflowed without any reason...

He closed his eyes and rested his head against the side of his mattress.
Other than the blaring sound of his head phones, Renji allowed no other noise to enter his room.
Even his breathing seemed to be hushed in reverence to the song.
His thoughts themselves were stationary.
They dwelled on one thing, and one thing only.
Someone stepped in through the open door.
"Renji, would you come here for a moment... I need your help."
It was Byakuya.

He giggled and wiped his mouth.
"I only had two!"
He held up four fingers and waved them in the other man's face.
Byakuya was not pleased.
"You need to go to bed."
They had been staying in the human world for only 3 days.
In truth, however, Byakuya was always expecting something like this... just not so quickly.
Renji shook his head.
"No, no..." He protested, the red in his cheeks spreading. "...I'm fine."
His arms came up to Byakuya's neck, pulling his captain forward.
Byakuya put a simple hand in front of Renji's face, pushing the boy back.
"Behave Renji...be a good fukutaichou."

We have never seen a dawn
that has not died within an hour.
But here's one now,
and, unsure if it has lied or not,
I check your eyes:
The sun's still struggling to get inside,
the small bright spots of fingertips
tugging lightly at your lids.
And I, from a family of cowards,
am hesitant to wake you,
though not so much as to stop my lowered hand
from moving upwards,
stilling only when you start to stir
and stretch; and then exhale
in a way that makes me flush,
then pale, as I, too,
drift back to sleep,
to wait until the midday sun
has come and gone
and left us one.
The moon is out
and so are we, sitting, nestled
in the busy market, free
from the deaths of bulls
and those who claim them.
A man, old, weighted
by a wedding ring,
sells flowers for the women
of men in love. I am,
he says, a king, and you agree,
with daffodils to please your smile.
And here, we have no fear,
just the whispers in our mouths and ears
in the way we drink each other's beer.
We pause, quiet, and know then

Do you wonder about me at all?
When I ignore your blatant stares
So, do you ever see me like I see myself?
Mirrored with no reflection to counter it
Do you see me how I see myself?
Dull, confused, disappointed
Or do you see the marks on my face
And the flaws I keep hidden under my skin?
Do you notice my blank expressions
And my steady gaze when you arent looking?
I hope so
But, no, I falter in your view
And I look away so that all you see is my back
And my profile with eyes forward and distant
So do you like how I cant see you?
Do you wish I could stare at you like I do myself?
With the marks on your face
And the flaws hidden under your skin?
Does it keep you up at night,
Wondering what I see of you?
Well, do you ever wonder if I will see myself
The way you see me?
