and thirteen stars to remember me by.
One in my eyes
when the air gets thin
as you steal my breath
through my little girl grin.
Two in my ears
washed in with the tide
and playing in songs
by which waves abide.
Three on my tongue,
behind cherry stained lips
which part as I dance,
summer's hands on my hips.
Four in my hair,
disheveled and fine
tangled safe in brown knots
and glowing devine.
Two more in a book
to be written in age,
where white ink meets white paper;
there, saving my page.
One more in my hand
Where our fingers fold;
thirteen stars to remember
and this one to hold.

a mattress on the floor and stained
white sheets, stained fingers from
ink and coffee and grease. Newspapers
in the afternoon, always cigarette
smoke curling off our tongues and
hovering in the corners of the ceiling.
Balcony with a dirty view of city
alive, car horns and grunge. The inside
of my skull is lined with liquor bottles
and i'm always barefoot in only a
shirt, waiting to be fucked. Your
eyes are bleary above the constant
scratchy stubble on tight-skinned
cheeks, a cough, a laugh, blasting
rock from the 80s on a broken green
stereo, bad tv shows at 3 AM, too much
wet tongue kissing and
mildew on the crumbling bathroom tiles.
My Heart and YoursWhy do you sit and stare into this dark voidMy Heart and Yours4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What beauty do you see when all is dead in me
You say you love me but I don't see how
How can you love a heart so dark and dour
Even you have felt my sting
And I have caused your heart to bleed
Why you stay I am not sure
When my heart is far from pure
I'm afraid you'll die beside me
That I'll drag you under earth
And that your heart so full of kindness
Will drown in my darkness full of hurt

The eerie laughter which will not cease
while our children beg for peace
upon their beds they fearfully wait
until the sun decides to sedate
Do you see the shadows at night?
The frightful movement upon the wall
the ghastly mourners who rise and fall
they terrify whom ever they like
but hide when light decides to strike
Do you know the monsters at night?
The chilling ghouls with menacing eyes
whose faces can tell no lies
other than, "this won't hurt a bit"
then, we throw a match which is lit
Gone are the horrifying screams,
which sing of dripping blood
Gone are the menacing shadows,
which dance upon graves
Gone are the terrible monsters,
which party in the night
Do you welcome the blazing fire at night?
The vanquishing element which consumes
leaving behind only make-shift tombs

His captures had released him into the ring and closed the gates, he was galloping around and stopping suddenly to leap straight into the air, his mane was flying out behind him and sweat was forming on his flanks and neck, his veins bulged on his chest and legs.
Then they started throwing stones at him, a hail of small, sharp pebbles peppered his sleek, muscular body and he leapt away, he spun on the spot and squealed and let out a deep neigh-scream.
The Governor held up his evil hand and the stoning ceased, she watched her beautiful black steed, his eyes rolling and his body trembling, he slowed to a high-actioned trot, his shoulder muscles rippling, he whickered pathetically.
The Govenor looked down at him with cruel, icy eyes and smiled, he held his hand up to silence the crowd. He then spoke,
"Any man that can ride this beast and tame him, will win the hand of my beautiful daughter" the crowd cheered and men surged forwards, forming a line
Well one by one the men entered the ring,

Leave me alone with my thoughts
Leave me alone with my soul
Give me space to find my road
To find my love
If there is a love at all
Give me a beautiful dream
Take nightmares from me
Show me the way and lead me tonight
Rush through the darkness for light
Say what I am
Say what you are
Tell me why we're apart
Take me to stars
I'm out of my mind
Bring her in my dreams
Give me happiness I need
Bring joy to my heart
Before I'm completely done
My life is nothing but dream
All I have isn't real
I'm not able to see
Not able to believe
Not able to live
But thanks to you I'm able to dream

I missed the moment when you took away my soul
You're out of life
I don't know how but I keep asking why
I see them coming, they come for me...
I hope they bring some kind of peace
Close the distance and come around
All that I need is nowhere to be found
I'm not losing, I'm not giving up
Feelings washed away but I won't stop
I have a flower for you
A black rose for your grave
Usual visit every Sunday I'm here
Holding a rose and holding my breath
Trying to forget how you welcomed your death
No tear I share no pain I got left
Only memories they always around here
Getting inside and messing with me
I know you watch me and probably smile
I miss that smile; it was only thing that wasn't a lie
Oh right, I need to respect you with silence and maybe even cry
But not matter how hard I tried I never could get you out of my mind
When I touched your cold heart I saw my end
In the end I saw hope
This hope was you...

"Manny wants her to be a guardian? What could she do to protect children?" Bunny yelled.
I stared at him for a moment, before walking towards him with the sweetest smile ever. "Bunny, I'm wounded. I can say whatever I want about myself, but your doing it before you even know me? I feel so hurt."
"Um...sorry." Bunny said with a gulp.
Jack looked like he was about to bust out laughing. I smiled, "Yeah, go ahead and laugh if you want Jack. Besides that, while I love children, I'm not exactly sure about becoming a guardian. I mean, what could I possibly protect in children?" I asked. "Manny didn't even tell me why he chose me." All of a sudden the moonlight shined on me and I was lifted up.
"Dear child," I heard Manny say, "do not despair. I have chosen you for a reason. Find your center _____. You have yet to fully understand your powers, and you do have something to protect in children. You will find that your center will chase fear away just as effec

He took a deep breath before he continued. " I haven't always been alone up here. Almost 400 years ago I met this beautiful woman, I didn't know who she was at that time, but it didn't take long before we both fell in love with each other. After being together in almost 20 years I discovered that like I, she was a guardian." Jack looked up at North in confusion when he heard this. The only female guardian he knew was the tooth fairy, and he was quite sure that she wasn't the one North was talking about. But before Jack could say anything, North continued with his painful story. "She was the guardian of the nature, and she protected one of the most strong feelings a person can feel, love."

You had fallen asleep in Bunny's arms within 2 seconds, which made the Bunny's task so much easier. It didn't take him long to reach your room, and to his luck your bedroom door was open. He placed you down on your soft bed, and pulled the fluffy duvet over you. He saw that a strand of (h/c) had fell into your face, and gently brushed it behind your ear. "He is not going to lay a finger on you, I promise you that." Then he placed himself on a chair, determined to watch over you the whole time. Bunny could feel that he was a little tired as well, but that would not get in the way of protecting you.
A silent knock was heard, and Bunny noticed Jack standing in the doorway to your room. "Now what do you want, she is asleep." Bunny half growled, half whispered, not wanting to wake you up. Jack just shrugged his shoulders, keeping his eyes on your sleeping form the whole time. "Just making sure that she is safe. I got the idea of watching

You wondered around in your room like a nervous wreck. North had told you that you needed to make a grand entrance, so he could "show you off" as he so kindly put it. But you had no idea what to do, and the party was only 4 hours away. You paced back and forth a few more times, before you threw yourself on you enormous (f/c) bed. Rolling over so you could watch you outfit for tonight, you gave out a heavy sigh "At least I know what to wear, or almost" Two dresses was displayed in front of you.
Both dresses was red with a off shoulder neckline, and long sleeves that went all down to your wrists. Both of them was also decorated with some white "fluff" on the neckline and the end of the sleeves. The difference with the two was that, one was with an skirt that went all down to the floor, when the other only went to your mid-thigh ( A/N: link to pic. of both dresses are in the description below).

Skeletons didn’t really have any powers and Jack did look really good as a skeleton but I don’t think I would. Wait what did I just think?! Get it together girl! Anyway and a fairy just seems way to girly for me with the little wings and fairy dust….just no. And a werewolf just seemed way too dangerous for my liking.

Of course I wouldn’t use it for bad things but it may be fun.’ You smiled to

When a child is born no one can see,
what sort of person he'll turn out to be.
Is his future set in stone by past history,
can it be determined by the family tree?
When a child is born he's given a name,
a name that when new is free from all blame.
But when he gets older will he still be the same,
or will he cause his parents much suffering and shame?
When a child is born the parents rejoice,
to create a new life is clearly a choice.
But when he grows up will he raise up his voice
against hatred and war and bias with poise?
When a child is born nobody can know,
just what's in store, how the future will go.
But if he is cherished so his spirit can grow,
his name may then honor those who love him so.

I felt butterflies in my stomach when I hugged Jack. It felt so....right for some reason. I would have imagined the hug to be freezing, but it wasn't. It took a while before we let go of each other, and I noticed that boy in front of me with the pale skin, now had a tint of pink covering his cheeks. Jack starred at me for a while before he cleared his throat. "Uhm...we better begin clean up this mess" I nodded in agreement. We stood up, and began quietly to clean up the room.
It took forever to clean the entire room. We also repaired the big white piano, and organized all the shattered music sheets. The sun had begun to risen, before we were finished. I placed the last book on the shelf, and heard a quiet snoring behind me. I furrowed my brows, confused by the sound and turned around to see the winterspirit sound asleep in a pile of pillows on the floor. He looked so relaxed, and kind'a cute.
