Giggling "what are you doing?"
"Apparently petting your nose," he starts to move his thumb in a circular motion on the tip of her nose, "what were you trying to do?"
"Bite my thumb to finish the pinky promise."
"I've never heard of that. I touch thumbs."
"To complete the promise and it's supposed to symbolize an unbreakable vow since circles are typically harder to break. Why would you bite your thumb?"

"Would you calm down?" I told him as he pushed me lightly forward. "We won't miss it, y'know?" I gently pushed him back and in return he attempted a ninja pose with his hands in the air as his green eyes sparkled in amusement.
I decided to lighten up; I took impulse and leaped unto his back as he balanced himself to keep from falling over. I tried to look down at him through his curly brown hair and drummed on the top of his head, "Onward Horsie!"
He laughed to himself and carried me to the end of the bridge. I kept drumming on his head as my thoughts had started to wonder off from what he was saying. The whole evening he had dragged me around the whole town, stopping at certain places to buy stuff for me. Daniel wasn't the kind of person to be so hyper, especially on a weekday.

Dear Guy in ChargeTo whom ever runs the universe-Dear Guy in Charge2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Dear mysterious thing,
I have a few complaints. I know that you're not supposed to pick favourites, but considering that I'm taking the time to write to you and am going to pay the ridiculous mailing charges for this, I think you can give me a break this time.
I just have some problems I would love for you to fix, mainly because I don't know how or don't want to try in fear of screwing up.
First of all, I wouldn't mind if you could spread some love (and money) over my family.
If you can only do one there, I'll take the money. It would sure spread a bit of love of its own by taking some stress off everybody.
Secondly, I would like a boyfriend. Please don't give me that crap about "you don't need boyfriend to feel loved". Just, please, do it. Here are my preferences, if you don't mind looking over them quickly and selecting a cutie for me. Preferably one who doesn't do drugs, smokes, is alcoholic, or a jerk. The last one you gave me had a few of

But you shall not walk in the cold, white snow through a dark,

Today I am the water, quenching your thirst on a hot summer day.
I soothe the heat, I keep you cool and preserve you from dryness.

The perfect lie
To escape a truth
Painfull enough to die
The best lie
A cover up
The worst lie
Making me an empty cup
Draining out the life
I once held dear
Blurring my eyes
Changing what I hear
All I see is tears
All I hear is lies
The darkened skies...
All because of the most perfect of all lies...

If I Were to DieIf I Were to Die2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Sometimes I dream that
if I were to die;
What would you do
if you had to say good-bye?
I know you tried so hard,
Because I Know You.
But it's not the end result;
it's what you always do.
You loved me.
You were beside my bed,
reading from a story-
the one you always read.
There was a shining knight,
and the princess in her cage.
The Knight fought the Dragon;
he was so very brave.
In the end he saved her.
Saved her from her fate.
But in this fairy tale-
the knight was just too late.
Lay me under stars,
beneath the Milky Way.
I know it's really far,
but it's so close today.
Lay me in the water,
And then just let me go.
You keep drifting farther;
While I sink so low.
Lay me in a field
Full of flowers white.
Let the dawn be revealed
before it turns to night.
If I were to die-
I want to say good-bye
in my Own way.
Our time was just too short.
Severed at the start.
It wasn't you, it was me
who broke our melded heart.
If I wasn't sick,
If I didn't die.

Do you know?
Those really annoying people,
Who just won't leave you,
Those who ask stupid questions
And expect an answer?
I know those people
And especially one
He goes in my class
Yes the very same one
He annoys me every day
With those stupid question
But how can it be
That no matter what
He keeps going on
Does he really enjoy,
Annoying me so much?
I just don't understand
Does it make his day?
To make mine so much worse
So today I did something else
I stopped answering back
But he didn't stop
I was on the edge
So stood up and said:
"All those stupid question you ask,
Annoy the hell out of me
So would you please stop
And leave me alone?"
To my surprise
He actually stopped and said:
It was the only way
I could actually talk to you"
I looked choked at him
And began to smile
"Why didn't you said so?"
I took his hand
"Let's be friends, K?"
He nodded and smiled back.
Which just made my day.
Early In The MorningTo wake up with youEarly In The Morning2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
early in the morning,
to the first ray of light
and the first scent of jasmin
that make their way to our bed.
When all is still quiet
dew on the grass and the smell is so sweet
and the only sound we can hear
is the warbling of birds in the trees.
To wake up with you
early in the morning
and feel your touch on my skin,
as you roll up my red nightdress.
Your body against mine
wrapped up in your arms.
To open my eyes to see you
watching me, tantalized,
and to hear you breath next to me.
To wake up with you
early in the morning,
with just a few hours' sleep,
after cuddling in the dark,
our bodies warming up,
making love all through the night.
What a bliss!
To wake up with you early in the morning...
Shall we get up and walk on the beach
or we stay in bed and make love again?

Everything was dark
I killed without mercy, I took what I pleased
I was the crowned prince, everything was mine
I had no remorse, I had no joy
I needed neither, I was satisfied
I found warmth and hope
You were the only one to show a demon kindness
A fierce warrior, you could slay us all with just a though
But with hands so gently you tamed even the most savage beast
I fell hard when I met you
I wanted to steal you from everything
But I held onto you to tight
I lost you
I fell from grace, I threw it all away
Everything became cold
No other woman could fix that
No amount of anything could
All I could do was watch you from the shadows
Love you from the shadows
Protect you from the darkness that sent you running
And then watch you fall in love with another

Socks On Her ToesI was born in a room with two windowsSocks On Her Toes2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In a house that serviced the dead
And oh how my mother wept, for there were no blonde curls on my head
Just a baby girl who didn't like socks on her toes
I had a name like winter, from a country of old
Though it was my grandfather's tongue
From which my words would unfold
Barefoot and walking I still could not tell
Why I loved the way the candle flames burned
For you see it was shortly after that I learned
I lived in a world where dead things used to dwell
Chandeliers high up in the ceiling
Ivory lace curtains and flower vines on paper walls
My home gave everyone a funny feeling
From my windows I could see the sky
I recall it now, every once in a while
That simple sweet nostalgia that makes me smile
Sheets swaying, in the sunshine and the breeze, as they hung to dry

So small, tiny and frail,
Barely the size of a fingernail.
The next few months they'll see you grow,
Unaware they'll soon be making your tombstone.
A couple closer than ever at what they've created,
A room for you they've just decorated.
A brand new cot with a teddy inside,
The couple embrace with overwhelming pride.
The weeks pass fast with so much to do,
Nerves and excitement getting stronger and its all for you.
Almost the size of a persons hand,
Something isn't quite right, they dont understand.
The machine must be broken, the scan is wrong.
Where is your heartbeat? Its gone.
Sadness and grief control the situation,
How can joy turn so quickly to devastion.
How can you comfort when the news gets worse?
There is nothing we can do, you still have to give birth.
A couples world torn apart,
Elation over from the start.
Every night she has cried,
Knowing her baby is dead inside.
He feels powerless, ther

Black silhouette on velvet white,

Wandering the streets of the night,
With macabre majesty does he turn to bow.
Look up and see that shadow soar,
Luminous presence in that bleak mist,

Flying over me with acrobatic twist,
With gleeful grace only he could show.
Touch that shadow that you know,
Silken feathers bristle from touch,
Do I feel the crow.
Relaxing in my presence as such,
With erudite eyes that can only know.
