so far but not too long ago,
you're still the only girl,
i tell myself i even wanna know,
about a week feels like a month,
a month to me's a year,
but it remains clear,
that i still want you right here.
i miss the talking,
the dreams of walking,
into a place in the weather,
and dancing together,
day or night,
now or never,
as i write this,
i feel so lost,
because i haven't spoken to you,
and iv'e faced the cost,
i need the convo's,
you're part of me,
normally love go's,
but not for you and me,
your kiss to me,
is bliss to me,
it's twisted me,
if you're missing me,
we're meant to be.

Ben kaçarken her yönümden
Pusula hep korkuyu gösteriyordu
Geceye vurgun bir ateş yatıyordu başucumda
Yetmiyordu kendine sarılan bedenim söndürmeye
Islak bir taşa koyarken başımı
Üzerime çekiyordum cani yalnızlığı
Hani bir ömürlük uçuşu gibi bir kelebeğin
Kanat çırpıp bir anda
Ne çiçekler doyurur
Ne bir hüzün, yağmur doğururdu
Yetmiyordu bir kanat mesafesi
Ezberlediğim aşkların hain şarkılarına
İki parmak arası bir dudak belası
Boşaltıyordu deli damarlarımı bile
Ama ben ölemiyordum

Casey laid awake that night, thinking about what Faze had said. And about Jade. The conversation in the hallway had sent him into spiral of emotions and he didn't know what to think.
Jade had never mentioned Faze, but he couldn't believe they'd ever been a couple. But there did seem to be a lot she was hiding. He felt guilty when he realized he was curious about what it could be. How did Faze know what she looked like underneath her hair? Had she shown him?
The thought caused jealousy to start boiling up inside him. Why would she tell Faze and not him? Maybe he was just overreacting. There could be a multitude of reasons to explain it. He couldn't jump to conclusionsat least not until he got some answers. Now he was really going to have to fight the urge to ask her about it. She would probably get mad if he did. But what could possibly be so wrong with her that she would want to hide it? He knew it was Jade's business and it wasn't his place to go poking around
-Endlessly-Ah, how can your lips be so soft?-Endlessly-2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your kisses are red on my pale skin
I'm endlessly captivated by you
Dreams can't compare to being by your side
I poured my heart into the sea
Into the mouths and swarms of schooling fish
Immersing my emotions beneath the moon
Where the shadows laydown black and cold
Your eyes are like that at night
Enchanting and deep
You have a gravity of your own
Pulling me through the emptiness of space
Faster and faster until I burst into flames
Crackling blue static is the core of my desire
With the intensity of a thousand wishing stars
The galaxy melted above our dreaming beds
The warmth between two bodies
Angels hanging in the gallows
The feather down in my pillow
Sorrow, loneliness, and day-to-day insanity
You purge my melancholy every time I become ill
Can we connect the constellations between our souls?
I'm sure we can with time
With the word 'love' scrawled on complex memories
Tangled feelings and lies were always torn apart
Deconstructed with ever-present k

I saw your face
I watched you wander
Through an unknown place.
The world of dreams
Within my mind,
Leave the realm of reality
Far far behind.
Whilst you walked
You stumbled and fell,
Into the darkness,
The icy cold hell.
Dream turned to nightmare
As you screamed for your life,
I watched as you suffered
And you reached for your knife.
You slashed at the darkness,
Yet no damage was done.
It began to swallow you,
And left you no chance to run.
Engulfed in black flame,
Your soul slipped away.
A new mind took its place
In the body that remained.
You were not you,
For you were long gone.
You let go of your light
And the darkness had won.

"Hey, I was wondering where you were!"
Casey wiped the sweat off his neck and turned to see his brother sauntering down the hall. He smiled. Well, smiled wider than he was already smiling. He couldn't seem to stop. "Hey, Lance."
Lance was a mess. Dark oil covered his hands and forearms and was smeared across his T-shirt and face like war paint. He wiped his hands on a dirty rag as he approached, but all it did was spread the oil around more. "You look happy."
Casey shrugged, feeling a blush rise to his cheeks again. He walked beside his brother down the hall through plexiglass windows of the training facility, but he didn't feel the ground under his feet. He didn't feel the usual weight gravity pressed on his shoulders. He didn't feel any weight at all. Even after the hard workout he'd just finished, he felt like he could take off and fly. He'd felt that way all day.
"What happened?" Lance asked, a knowing grin creeping over his face.

There's a faint annoyance in my answering machine's voice. I think she's bothered by the persistence of the people that just won't go away.
'Ring, ring'. "The caller you have dialed..."
There's mail in my letterbox. I know because someone called to say they couldn't deliver to me anymore, unless I emptied it. That was back when I used to answer the phone.
"... is not available at the moment"
I think there's another person knocking at the door again. One day they won't come by, but that suits me just fine.

Jade's hands were clenched into tight fists. "Why did you do that, Revis? You had no right to do that!"
"Actually, I did." He glanced over the top of her head to make sure no one was coming down the hall, then ushered her inside his room. His roommate, Benn, shouldn't be back for at least an hour, so that gave them some time. Revis hated to admit it, but he wanted this talk with Jade to be over with so he could go check on Vyra. He hadn't been to see her since last night, almost a full day. She must feel like he abandoned her.
"What makes you think that?" his sister screamed as soon as the door shut. "It's my business! Why do you always think you can butt into it?"
You don't know how big a favor I've done you, little sister. "You need someone else who understands your condition. I'm not saying you need someone else, because I know you can take care of yourself, but if the day comes when I'm not here anymore, I just want to know there'll be someone

The Story of Half an HourI hate Christmas Eve. I haven't always. It started when I was old enough to realize it was bad that boys didn't like me, and that same hatred has continued to this day. All of my friends are busy being cutesy with their boyfriends and I'm stuck, in a bar, in New York, alone.The Story of Half an Hour1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Don't get me wrong, I'd rather be stuck in New York for Christmas than be back in my tiny town in Northern California, but I'd also rather be spending it with someone special. Someone who'd give me a necklace, or heck, anything, smothered in love. Instead, I am sitting on a stool, fingering the fraying edges of my black fingerless gloves while I listen to the bartender breaking up a fight.
Lifting my head slightly, I survey the bar. There are quite a few single men, but the majority of them are not attractive, like the guy over in the corner with thick, bulky glasses and a large pimple on his nose or the burly man with huge arms covered with tattoos of half naked women. Averting my eyes, I turn instead to the other
Not a Spitting ImageI walk by her everyday. I mean, it's not like I have a choice. We're sisters; we share the same DNA. But, as I look at her, all my inadequacies are thrown back into my face. Her luscious blond hair tumbles down her back like a waterfall, and she sneers at my stringy brunette mess as I pass, tugging on it hard. Whimpering, I clutch the strand she touched for dear life, but I don't retaliate. Why should I? She's perfect, and I'm below average.Not a Spitting Image1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

A shock of cold water at my feet, leaves me paralyzed with bliss
A breeze blowing through my hair
Luring me into the abyss of your love
So I dunk
And the waves tumble over me like rocks falling from a cliff
Billowing beneath the surface
I almost can't breathe
My emotions freeze, fight or flight?
I feel at home
The waves subside and turn into a comforting ebb and flow
Treasures of another world appear
Ones I've only known in my dreams
As I walk along your shore, basking in your beauty
I feel different than before I ventured into the blue
I feel alive, and at peace
I feel complete
My hair crimps with the salt of your kiss
and I play in the colorful castle of your kelp
