I know painters paint it, composers play it, actors can act it...but what can writer's do?
Well, we can tell it in a story, we can convey it in a play, we can sing it in lyrics, and we can illustrate it in poems.
But, for the moment I am not a painter, a composer, an actor, or a writer...but I can explain it the only way I know how...
Frustratingly magnificent while also terribly unique.
Confusing and intriguing, and can also leave you weak.
Menacingly wonderful if not also specially designed,
All emotions put together, but right now they are all mine.
Rivaling with a person whom I've never seen before,
knowing that no matter what; I will always love him more.
Daunting and perilous, but sweet and caring too,
A feeling of elation when it means so much to you.
A rhythm in rhyme.
A feeling that can and will always transcend time.
The moment of that passing glance;
The crazy feeling of being lost in a trance....
The daydream of the soul's song,
The triumph and the e

as time colludes with your decision
past the point of swift revision
in the ambit of perdition
on this eventual occasion
when naught is left but dour persuasion
past the point of instigation
what will be your resolution
if my plea meets dissolution
and barren obscures this confusion
from this dire transmutation
before the callous castigation
and any further tribulation
if you heed not this premonition
then kismet in all its precision
will sanction our permanent partition
Teenage MistakeI'm going to makeTeenage Mistake8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A teenage mistake
And prove to everyone this life
Can be a fun path to take
So grab my hand
And I'll whisper into your ear
'lets stop the sands of time
And show the world what we're made of'
As longs as what could happen
And you love me as I love you
One kiss will seal our fate
Your arms are warm
All we have is tonight
We'll make this worthwhile
And remember it forever.
Regret can be healed by time
As can pain for the future
But if we can make this time wonderful
We can forget about the rest of our life
So lets make a teenage mistake
Close your eyes
And follow me
And I'll see you tomorrow.
A Carefree DanceWhen asking your lady to dance, always be sure to make eye contact, smile, and take her hand in yours. Speak clearly and, above all, make her feel like the luckiest girl in the world get a chance to dance with you.A Carefree Dance4 years ago in Romance More Like This
These were the words echoing in Ron's head as he sat in his seat, eager for the wedding ceremony to be over and the reception to begin. He would finally be able to show off more of what he learned from reading Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches and maybe, just maybe, he would sweep Hermione off her feet and they could both forget about the dangers that lay ahead of them. For just a few moments, it would be just them: no Harry, no horcruxes. Simply her hand in his, his arms around her, dancing.
Ron sat through the whole of the wedding ceremony with the thought of asking Hermione to dance on his mind. He had it planned out perfectly — they would go find a table at the reception, Harry would bugger off somewhere, and Ron would be free make eye

there are days when my stomach is not tucked in
and these attempts at spanish translation are too feeble
to dredge up verb conjugations
and i am just a fool.
i tried walking off this stupor
but it was like skipping off a cliff
(too easy, and anyway the philosophers
in my mindtunnels were too fat
too heavy to make action practical)
it's a sluggish sort of progress,
this growth into an orange-maned
and daily i stoop to rebuild the walls of my illusions.
(because i want to keep this sunrise radiating
from my smile
and i want to stay happy.)
i try hard not to be a realist.

it is beautiful
we will never run out
of salt the way we
run out of love
we are children of the sea
oceans inside our
glass bodied vessels
and drifting along rough sands.
i want to touch you
a hundred different ways,
to kiss you like i need it to breathe.
you just tell me about making magic
i can tell you about making love
(and how they are both the same).
i love you more than i love myself
and i wish that actually meant
something. instead i rely on
poorly structured letters
and wrap my head round the wildflowers
in hopes that we can lie
until it is uncertain where
i end and you begin.
make me laugh and you have my soul.
the way your heart beats in my ribs,
around my spine,
you are magic.

All for one forbidden moment

I Cannot Describe How I FeltI Cannot Describe How I Felt8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was so beautiful,
The way your body moved.
So slowly, so
Slowly your hand took mine.
I could feel your heartbeat in each fingertip.
I could feel each breath,
You turned so slowly to me.
Cautious, but ready.
Raising your eyes to mine,
Taking them in before they closed.
Your lips came to mine
So softly, taking in each point of pressure.
Together, we breathed
With surprising calm.
Shaking, you took my body to yours.
And I took yours in mine.
Free and unafraid.
You moved with such compassionate
I felt not exposed.
This was not an exposition of something hidden at all.
It was a revelation
Of the way things should be.
You held me.
I felt safe.
You held me.
I felt invincible.
You held me.
I felt passion.
You held me.
I felt loved.
You left me.
And I cannot describe how I felt.

I love the way I can talk to you
And say what's on my mind
I never have to look away
Or keep a thing inside
Tears fill my eyes when you're not around
Or when you just don't care
But I know in my heart you will do what's right
For me, you will always dare
Material things will never matter
As long as I have you
You make every day that passes
So much easier to get through
My worries disappear when you're around
No thoughts of pain or doubt
I feel your love when you hold me close
And kiss me if I pout
I don't care what they are talking about
All I care for is you
I'll jump off a building to show you my love
If that's what I have to do
I love you for everything that you are
Not what you promise to be
I know you can't see why or how
You're the most important thing to me

The Fallen beneath you
Goddess of the severed light
Snatch nature to your Will
More lust than forgiveness
Penetrating resolve from
temperamental Holy fires
I came upon you there
Praying for the kill
Another serpent in the grass
Make water into wine
Darker clouds marking Black reasoning
I was always tired of being
Walk forthright into those teeth
Dripping insanity pushing me further
Here we were all 7s again
Maybe this time the cold earth
would beg resolve
Gripping tears onto the thing Man fears
And here you come, wrapped in ashen wings
Again harder than light
Offer me more than just hope
Offer me more
Let the demons dance in your name
Come down to me

Sing a song of splatter,
sing a song of stain,
climbing up the ladder,
coming down again.
We can sit together
on the lowest rung -
coffee in the filter,
coffee on the tongue.
Is anything the matter?
We will start again,
with a song of splatter
and a song of stain.

Your first day of school.
Your first boyfriend.
Your first kiss.
Your first date.
Your first time.
Your wedding day.
The day you graduated.
The day your child was born.
The day you did something amazing.
The day you get hired.
The day you get fired.
The day you got recognized.
The day your dog died.
The day you cried at a sappy movie.
The day you did something stupid.
The day you had fun.
The day you didn't care.
The day you wanted to die.
The days you were happy.
All these things happen.
Things that you will never forget.
You might not remember all the details or the date
But you remember what's important.
These things that you never forget
Always have the biggest impact on who you are.

A familiar warm spot,

1s and 0s played out

Hold on to lesser dreams

Loose radio transmissions

Deeper voids in the Closet,

The rain outside played

___Today I tore my bedroom walls to shreds, collected stardust from the pink foam beneath and melted in between the wooden beams. I have disappeared.
___Think of me in the blue dark, skin and paper on velvet lyrics. While sleeping sound in nightmares and in the arms of strangers, you will remember my name.
___I dismantled my door into thirty-seven pieces for every glance that you have left behind. I have painted my bed into diamonds and mixtapes, a tomb of glamour and spite. I have disappeared.
___Find me in your dreams, waiting by the sea and you will finally love me. And in the silence of a summer night you will change your DNA and rewire your lungs and wake up to find yourself alone.
___I dig and dig beneath my home until I hit a sinkhole. It sucks my room in slowly, in a colorful way like a carnival's carousel. I have disappeared.

Forever I'm frozen no more.

I love the way you wont let go,
I love the way you tell me you're mine,
I love the way it's easy to show,
That most of all, I just love you.
It's true, I love every inch of you,
I'll love you when it's hard to sleep,
When my thoughts are shades of blue,
I'll love you even when the blue skies weep,
And our garden burns around us.
I dont know what I would ever do,
If I made you ever cry,
I never want to ever hurt you,
I dont want this to ever die,
And I dont want you to ever frown.
I'm so weak when I am with you,
One look and your eyes paralyze,
I'm no one else when I'm around you,
I dont need a masking false disguise,
Because I trust you most of all.
Red and pink and white lined tradition,
Symbolize the greatest emotion,
Valentine's day is but a transition,
Another good way to show my devotion,
To you and us and even the blue,
Anything as long as It is with you.

But I hate when you ignore
I hate when you don't return my emails
And I hate when you don't call
I hate the way you avoid my eyes
When I'm trying to look into yours
And I hate what you say behind my back
And all the trouble that you cause
I hate the dot to dot acne just above your nose
And I hate your nearly-a-monobrow too
I hate the way you're so selfish
And how it always has to be about you
But mostly I hate that none of this is true
And the fact that I hate myself
For not being to hate you
