Love of Life Gift of Death
What some people don't realize is how easy it really is to be able to stare into each of your best friends' eyes, their souls, and be willing to say that you love them with every fiber of your being. To be able to say to each of them that if the moment ever came, you would be willing to die for them, without hesitation. However, the difficult thing, the scary thing, is realizing within you that it is true. That you actually care enough about these people, these people that you consider your family, to die for them. They are your life, and no matter what it takes, you will do everything in your power to be there for them, to help them, to hold them, to cry with them, to laugh with them, to love them.
Of course, they don't quite believe you. They don't believe someone can truly care that much about them to be willing to give their life for them. They don't admit it, but they still say thank you and they love you back, but deep down, they're afraid of someone truly loving them that much,
To Catch A Falling StarLast night I dreamed of fallingTo Catch A Falling Star11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through mist and memory
I felt you calling-
The wishes of your soul
Brought me towards the edge
To see if I could make you whole.
Last night I dreamed of racing
Through blackened earth
I felt your heart aching-
The lonely tears you've cried
Brought me to the edge
Your light my only guide.
Last night I dreamed of finding
The bliss my light has sought
Our souls forever binding-
The love we made
Brought me over the edge
Never was I so afraid.
Last night I dreamed of falling
Through mist and memory
I felt you calling-
Your scent a fragrant rose
Through tear-stained bliss
I found you beneath our willows.
Together we sought
That love so pure-
Now your star is ever caught
And together we shall endure.

A Death in LiteratureHe didnt enjoy killing, or even violence in general; it disgusted him. It was something the world could do without entirely, and he wished more than anything that he could escape it. He knew, however, as we all know, one cannot escape violence in a world that lives for death. He didnt want, in any part of him, to kill another human being. Of course, that did not mean for even a second, that he wasnt going to do it.A Death in Literature10 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Purpose; generally, this is accepted as the one thing every human wants and needs. In our society, and our world, no person wishes to be seen as nothing, or negligible. People always do what they do for a reason; they are driven by purpose. This time, though, there would be no purpose, no answer to the why?. The act would defy general understanding, crashing reason into a metaphorical sea of confusion. He had no reason to do this; no reason at all. The choi

we are smoke rings in the dark, soap bubbles on the lip of the water. we are bright eyes and shy fingers touching through the veil of introductions. we are racing side by side down separate book aisles, not calling out to one another but comforted in the echo of each others' pulse. we are strangers who aren't strange to one another at all, promises scrawled in folded pieces of paper, slipped under door cracks in the middle of the night.
possibilities are glowing iridescent between us, eyes overbright as we dance circles around one another. we're shoved into rooms filtered with sundust, lips praying as palms, fingers caught into oil-dark curls and tracing faintly dimpled cheeks. futures are unwound on the spin of a syllable, one second breaking everything we thought we knew about how our lives would go.
whole existences are leaping forward from the shadows with the power of a freight train, knocking out everything we've ever known to be

it dries out my mouth like i had tried to swallow tumbleweeds, it scratches the back of my throat like i'm trying to regurgitate memories from an empty stomach. it leaves me sitting in the middle of an empty room and wishing the ceiling would cave in because then at least i'd be able to watch the stars.
instead i'm just laying on top of the covers pretending to count them in the drywall and imagining what it would feel like to have your arm behind the curve in my neck. instead i'm closing my eyes and listening to the suction in my veins because i am hollow and caving in. i keep painting you with rich, lush adjectives, but you're just a cardboard pipe dream that falls flat and leaveleaveleaves me without air.
i keep spending my nights sketching your eyes on the ceiling, but i still can't see the moon.
and you know, i keep my hands busy during the day to ignore the faint shaking they do when i know they want to be holding yours. i keep my mouth talking to ignore t

The words echoed through my mind over and over. Sure I knew she cared for me, but I never once thought she loved me. Not a hanyou like myself. But as I look back on my memories I can see that I was to blind to see it
After all the times I went to Kikyo. After all the times I told her to be more like her incarnate. No matter how many times she had to sit me. She always returned to stand by my side. She put aside her feelings just so I could be happy.
Something told me this was the last time. She wouldn't be coming back to me this time. There was nothing holding her here since the jewel was finally completed. No she wouldn't come back on her own.
Why does it even matter to me? I love Kikyo. Or do I? I'm not too sure about anything anymore. One minute I'm morning over Kikyo's death.... errmm end of her walking the Earth. Then the next I'm morning over Kagome's departure.
Love. Something I haven't had much of in my life. Sure I had it back when my mother was alive.

I think thats a stupid thing to say, why would you say something like that?
Because when you look at me my toes curl and my stomach flutters.
Is that a quote from a book?
No. I dont think so. I dont know. It all gets a little mixed up sometimes.
So you love me like they love in books.
Question or statement?
Question, then. And, yes. I love you like Scarlett loves Rhett, like Elizabeth loves Mr. Darcy, like-
Stop, just stop. Dont love me like that. What happens after the last page?
We continue on loving like happily-ever-forever.
No, wed drop off, we'd end. Love isnt static, it doesnt continue in a flat line. Who can carry the same tune for years? We rise, we fall, we bump arms and step on each others toes. Ill annoy you because I cant stand going to Chr

These scars hidden from the world
So many tears left to fall
Your care as nothing but deceit
You've left me with nothing
But flashes of pain
And anger unmatched
Rise again so that i may beat you down
Feel my pain, taste your blood
I envy your angel of death
As vengeance escapes my grasp
But while you burn in the fire, I am left to smile
What else can I do?
For the memory that haunts me most
Is how you raped me with the words 'I love you'.

I grab your hand, I press two lies against the palm, I touch your cheek, I say youre the most beautiful thing Ive ever seen. Except grass growing under my fingers. I say thats more beautiful than you.
Your eyes warm, you wrap an arm around my waist, you tell me I am oxygen bouncing against your lung-walls, sunshine pooling in your smile.
I dont have the heart to tell you I am black-infested-smokers-lungs.
I dont have the heart to tell you I am smiling without teeth.
I dont have the heart, I dont have the heart.
You write me letters on the back of my hand, you whisper me sonnets when were driving too fast.
You tell me that I am a bird, I call you a carcrash. You roll down the windows, you stick your fingers in the wind and smile.
You swear you can close your eyes and feel the people in front of us with your fingertips. Theyre laughin
