"You're way too young to fall apart...
"I'm sorry, Bill. Georg was sitting next to me on my bed, rubbing my back lightly. I didn't turn over to look at him. I was comfortable and content with laying on my side. "It's not your fault, I stated after a while of neither of us talking. "He deserved it. the faint light from the small lamp across the room was giving off enough illumination that the room was lit up with an orange hue, it was calming. Georg kept rubbing my back.

It's youSo each day we have to find a way to be unique. I've been there before and I know it hurts. I know about the crying every night and the frustration in the morning when nothing's right.It's you2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trust me, I want nothing more than to hold you and take away all that pain.
But please, if you ever feel sad or scared, remember me and I'll always be here.
All I can do is smile when I see you 'cause I can't comprehend enough thought to spit out 'I love you'.
'Cause I scream your name when I awake from a nightmare.
Just begging you to be there.
I whisper your name when I wake,
From another beautiful slumber.
When I see your face, I just break up

Then time just doesn't matter
I am just waiting
For an honest word, forever
My lips are turning blue
From the ice that forms around me
For thinking about it all
The song, word, the love in the letter
The autumn leaves fall to the ground
And the drops of water on my fingers
There's never anything new
But the words the wind does whisper

"You're way too young to fall apart...
I kept a tight grip on Tom's arm as I continued pulling him down the street. I still didn't know what I was really doing. I mean, I just met him, how am I going to introduce my life into his? Jesus, why does shit like this always happen to me. I always get stuck in the most stupid of situations, then it takes me years to back out of them. I don't know, I just don't know. I'll start off like I normally would. I'll get to know him, he'll get to know me, we'll be friends. Just friends and that's it. Nothing else, just friends at heart.

LoveNo matter how sick she is or how bad she's looking at the moment,Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You still see her as the most beautiful person in the world.
And if you're really in love,
You don't care about all the other girls that are standing in line for you.
You don't want another night with any person.
You just want her. ♥
Happy endingI've always been believingHappy ending2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That if only I'll fight hard enough
There'll be a way for us
But perhaps the best way for us
Is to go seperate ways while sometimes meeting
As friends, and not as lovers
If two people
Though they try so hard
Keep on making each other sad
It is time to let go.
Thank you for realzing...
I couldn't have brought it over my lips.
Though my heart is crying
It remains unbroken
'Cause we've told each other everything
And there is nothing to be mad about.
Though my heart is crying
It remains open
For the one who'll love me
By his own free will.

A little girl stands, on the fourth of July, and is wowed by all that she sees. The colorful sparks that are being thrown into the air, reflect in her eyes. She is too young to know what this is all about, but joy is all she can feel. It's not just joy though. No, it's pure joy. The kind of clean joy that leaves you happy for years to come. The kind of joy that makes you want to dance or sing or cry from happiness. She feels it deep inside, and all she can do is stand paralyzed by the dazing fireworks. She grasps her mother's hand and feels the happiness well up inside of her. A smile is all she can comprehend of what is happening in her worl

To the one needing comfort, does the warmth of my hugs still last and give strength
To the one needing a home, is my shelter still a suitable place to spend the night?
To the one needing something to eat, do you still find delight from filling your belly with

To the one needing support, is my all still giving you the power to keep walking through pain?

It has seen better days than mine own; deserving much better than I could have ever give.
It has seen friendships grow, loving expressions blossom, wonderful saying that fill the heart
with delight over a lovely meal, never showing a lack of joy of being used in that way.
But it has also seen friendships end, love's betrayal made clear, sour shouting that fill the
heart with grief from the discord of foul words, though endure the pain of it of it all.

Your pulse in my ear,

Just touching you there...
Your hand on my face,
Palm brushing my cheek,
Now I can't speak...
Moments of silence,
The sound of soft sighs...
I'm drowning myself,
Gazing into your eyes...
Your look so intense,
It seems to demand..

But then you knew I would
You watch me all year long
Trying to catch me doing wrong
I keep my eyes open wide
Looking for where trouble might hide
Not that I want to find it you see
I want it to stay away from me
The tree is up and lights are strung
The holiday season has begun
Bright wrapped presents underneath
Wrapped tightly so no one peeks
I don't have much on my list this year
Just to be loved and have good cheer
My family to be safe and loved
To see them smile and to be hugged
Laughter around the fireplace
The healthy glow on everyone's face
That is what I wish for this year
Thank you Santa for lendi

I could see the light grow faint behind the hustle and bustle of New York City as the sun set in the west. Flakes of snow were cascading from the sky; the city was covered in a thin cloak of frozen splendor. I was in awe at how marvelous it was, my first time seeing snow, and yet I felt no excitement. I had a pain in my chest as I walked hand-in-hand with my father. It was 13 blocks from my grandfather's house to the church. I had walked these 13 blocks months ago in the warmth of summer, playfully making fun of how my father walked with his toes pointed outward, exactly like my Grandpa Jan. Now I felt hardly ali

"Good morning Sean," Maura said. "I brought along a sandwich in case you didn't have anything to eat this morning."
"Thanks Maura. Not knowing how long I will be here, I'm being careful to conserve my food, so I didn't eat much. It's for sure I can use this. Thank you."
Maura had already been waiting when I arrived at the bridge the next morning. After I finished the sandwich, we walked over to the farm where my family and I had lived.

When the town of Ballyickeen came within a five minute walk, I inspected myself to be sure that I had not overlooked something that might identify me as an outsider. Before leaving Boston, Mr. Cohen had arranged for me to get clothing from some recent immigrants from Ireland. It was my hope that the change in clothing, along with my beard, added to the number of years it had been since I had left Ireland, should help eliminate any recognition problems. I doubted anyone would recognize me out of hand, but more importantly, I didn't want my appearance to draw undue attention and speculation as to who I might be.

Following supper, Chance and Patrick had been bathed, warmed by the fire, and put to bed for the night. Mariska, Senta, and Dover sat around the table, drinking coffee from a pot that had just come off the fire. The conversation was sparse as they listened to the crackling of the fire inside the cabin, and the howling winds outside the cabin walls. For three days and nights, they had been held prisoner inside the cabin as they listened to the unrelenting blizzard winds roaring down through the mountain passes. Fortunately, they had not been caught unaware. The hard work they had all put in as they prepared for the arrival of
