Broken angel wingsThe moment I saw you,Broken angel wings4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I promised myself
that I'd fix you.
And I would have sworn
I grew angel wings.
Your wounds were never healed,
I failed, and I'm sorry.
I'm never enough and I know it.
I tried, darling.
Believe me, I did.
You always told me
how much you wanted to fly,
and you could do it,
I knew you could.
But the one with the wings was me,
and all I know is falling,
because that's all I ever did.
I wish I could reach you,
now that you stopped falling
you're too far above me.
And my wings are broken
(I'd blame you,
but it wouldn't be fair.
I insisted on fixing you,
when I was even more broken)
I'll miss you.
Don't look for me in heaven.
You won't find me there.
I'm right below the bottom,
where the broken burn,
where I belong.
Because you know I'm afraid of heights,
and you know I never learnt how to fly.
All I do is fall,
and I refuse to take you with me.
fly, love. i gift you my wings, fix them and fly.
My AngelShe looked up at me with those soulful, bottomless brown eyes; tears welling in the corners. At that moment, all I knew was that I should hold her, clutch her to my chest and never let go, stand there in the hallway, with my arms wrapped around her. I should have. I longed to run my fingers through her raven's hair, to caress her face, to kiss those beautiful plum lips. She had always been there, the spotlight on the stage of my life. Why hadn't I noticed her before? Of course, I had noticed her...but not like this. She had the kind of beauty that grew on you after a while. The kind of beauty that way subtle, but yet, made all the difference in the world. SHE made all the difference in the world. The world: My world. She was my world. As these thoughts ran through my mind, slowly, as if scared of me, as if I had hurt her, she turned away, hiding her tear streaked face from my view. She turned and walked away, fading into the black abyss of the mortal world.My Angel4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

And I shall tell what you want to hear...
It is a girl who isn't clever, but clever in what she knows
and a lost boy who knows exactly where he is going to go.
It is the scent of cologne and smoke and lovemaking
and a man who wears his heart on his sleeve
It is a woman who has always believed in her lover
and he will let her down no more
It is a sick man who is whole again
and the wife who stayed by his side
It is a writer who has found a brand new muse
and the paint of the artist who draws her lover
It is the words of a poet whose trust is renewed
and the warmth in the words of the person who finds love anew
It is the broken hearted girl who is loved and doesn't know
and the tears that are caught in the hands of the unknown lover below
It is the boy with the tuneless guitar who plays it anyway
and the door opening just as you're walking away.
It is the chords of a song which is yet to be sung...

Upon the pain
Of my past,
I feel so sad
And so guilty
But at the same time
I feel happy.
Because those mistakes
Made me who I am
They let me know the
People I know now.
Showed me what was right
And what was wrong.
My mistakes still haunt me
But if I had the option
To go back
And make them never happen,
Because I am happy
With what I have done.
The good and the bad.

ReminiscingThe first time Jack met Shane she was renting one of the manor’s rooms and refused to give her name, so his brother had named her Shane. Which somehow came from Ocean, but that’s a different story that understanding could cause insanity.Reminiscing1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
At the time, he was barely 18, and was on strict bed rest with a broken arm, and Shane decided to make sure he never left his room for a week.
The arm healed, Shane’s bossy nature never did.
Neither did her inexplicable love for the half breed she decided was her little brother, but that was a blessing or curse depending on the day.
Now Jack was twenty-two roughly, he had decided to never let anyone know his birthday after Shane, and Shane was still her own creature just as fickle and friendly as the sea. But with three younger brothers and lots of cousins and nieces and nephews.
Since, as Jack would put it, she was older than some of the seas and had the unfortunate tendency to eat her lovers, Sha
It's in MeMusic lines my heart with notes of happiness,It's in Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As if in the world there is no badness,
While in my dreams there's so much craziness,
There is never a little drop of madness.
The notes of joy twisting and winding,
Swimming and flying and running and binding,
To each individual thread in my soul,
And there is no longer a single toll,
That puts a strain on me.

I want to cry
I want to kick and punch
And get rid of these emotions
Inside of me.
But I wont.
Because that ruins my image
Of a normal girl.
Outside is a normal
Happy, hyper girl.
Inside are all the
Emotions that I can't show.
I want to scream
And run away
And cry until I cant see
But I wont
Because you all
Wouldn't handle the real me.
The one who's bitchy
The one that's over sensitive
The one that doesn't listen
The one who hates everything
So leave me alone
So I can cry
So that I can be
That no one else sees.

I don't believe in You. I'm sorry. This letter's really got nothing to do with that, but I figure I should put that out there. I don't believe in You, not because of any ill will but because I'm a sceptical mind and frankly the evidence seems to point to You not existing. And if You do exist, well, I've read the Bible, and I'm not sure I'd believe in You anyway, any more than I believe in the Church or Republicans. So I hope that clears the air. Please don't let it effect what I'm about to say.
See, I'm not writing this letter for me. I'm writing this letter for a lot of people. Sure, I'm among the number, and so are a lot of people like me, and so are a lot of paedophiles, murderers, adulturers, and gays. All those people You hate.

Or just fade away like unimportant dreams

Any thoughts you do or don't want to flaunt

No not at all

It might have been inevitable,
something faded in your heart,

Another starry-eyed romantic,
forever lost in the the lonesome night,
the moon sings of her returning,
I won't go down without a fight.
I could tell you that I miss you,

The deranged man screamed, as he was being dragged away by my best friend and the champion of the region. I wish I was one of them. All those things Ghestis said to N were terrible. An unfeeling monster, he called him. I don't think I meet anyone who loved more than he did, even if he did say it in a different way. The screaming continued, "I ALWAYS KNEW THAT BOY WAS WORTHLESS!

Touya walked down the halls as his heart was filled with anger and sadness. All he could was watch as N left with Touko in his arm's bridal style. He was jealous of him.
Right now, he wanted to punch a wall but of course he would never do that. He usually could control his anger and for some reason he couldn't now.
As he was deep in thought, he unconsciously roamed down the large halls until something made him fall back. He ran into Cheren.
Getting up first he kindly helped Cheren back to the ground. "Sorry man, I wasn't paying attention."
"Its fine," Something caught Cheren's attention about Touya, he never acted this way. Cheren raised his eyebrow, curious of what happened. "Touya "
"It's nothing," Trying to ignore the situation, Touya quickly escaped from the scene. He didn't want to talk about this to anyone, at least not now.
Cheren couldn't help but sigh as he watched his friend leave.

The Tune of My BloodThe Tune of My Blood4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The wind speaks of a girl who is artistic and open minded,
Who has traveled the world and lived in many places,
And blows out happiness and sorrow in one breath.
Bright light shines through her finger tips and blinds the ocean,
Brilliant colors swerve and shout in the air she breathes,
Striving to make music to the eyes they meet.
Notes fly out of her in song and in ink,
The canvas breaking to the tune she cries,
Singing and shouting on the stage of the world,
The shining sun screams that she's here.
Whispers swerve around, but no rumors are true,
Because nobody knows of her secret stardom,
And the interested are nowhere to be found.
Her mystery is hidden in the depths of her plasma,
Forever until a person wails, "I'm here, tell me your secret."

Any of you ever having set even so much as a toe in Florida know that driving here is not at all unlike driving a Volkswagen beetle... on rocky African terrain with deadly gaboon vipers in the space beneath your feet, while fleeing a herd of crazed elephants, one of whom is in must and probably looking to hump both you and your silly looking pea-green beetle to oblivion.
This is not a dramatization. I saw something on the road today that I never ever EVER want to see again...
I was driving... around in circles apparently, because some of the streets in Florida make about as much sense as what would happen if you converted a Jackson Pollock painting into roadways. Some streets will just randomly end at a T junction without any signs and continue halfway up some other street. WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT!? Admittedly, the thought of snowbirds getting confused as all hell by it is fucking hilarious, BUT I LIVE HERE GODAMNNIT!
