around my head. I find myself, a rose
between my teeth and promises pricking my
tongue, climbing your trellis. You and I both
know my reasons: I'll stand there in front of
you, strip to my bones for you, and print "love"
on your eyelids. What we knew before as
skin is a barrier, collarbones masts,
and your vertebrae and ribs are ladders.
Wide-eyed, we can synchronise our breathing
and the rhythms that our hearts are beating.
Tapping on your window, I lick letters
from the words on my lips. Through timid night
comes your shadow. The streetlights are spotlights.

You should listen to me. Im telling you this now so I can at least say I tried. Do not listen to Robbie. As much as I love Robbie - and I do, whatever he might say - hes just a kid. He wouldnt lie deliberately, but he just doesnt remember things right.
Im not going to tell you whether or not to believe Stephanie. I dont know her well enough yet.
The first time I saw Stephanie was at the wedding. I didnt see her until the ceremony started, and I couldnt even guess how she felt about the whole thing. I wasnt at the front, where I should have been, but in the middle of a pew, in the middle of the church. Its not a good place if youre trying to see the face of a bridesmaid. First you have your back to her, and then she has her back to you. She turns round a bit when the bride gets

The Girl in the SeaNathan Wild stepped off the train, his right-hand side weighted down by the holdall on his shoulder. He cast his eyes over the platform and then craned his neck, looking between the shoulders of the small crowd for a face he recognised. He saw her, squinting at all the doors along the length of the train, and waved. She caught his eye, smiled, and waved back.The Girl in the Sea8 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
James had got off the train first, but now Nathan had lost him. He looked vaguely around, and quickly spotted him, still talking to the pretty girl. So this was her station too. Nathan couldn't hear what they were saying, but he could well imagine it. 'You live round here? What a coincidence! You'll have to show me around sometime.' James was a corny guy, but he always seemed to be able to find girls who lapped it up like milk. He left them to it, and walked towards Karen.
Because this wasn't London, people moved aside for him, many of them with polite smiles. Nathan smiled back, thinking that this might not be so bad

The day started like any other. Sora woke up, still half asleep. But he knew that he was supposed to be meeting Kairi today and he wouldn't miss that for the world. While in his pajamas, he went outside to breathe in the fresh morning ocean breeze. After serenely watching the sun rise higher over the horizon, he turned to go back inside. That's when he almost tripped over a mysterious neatly wrapped package. Just like any curious youth, he picked it up, examined it from all sides and took it inside, locking the door shut behind him.
Sora took it to his room and carefully unwrapped the box. He gasped in surprise at its contents. Inside was an extremely articulated human-shaped doll. What surprised him most was the uncanny resemblance to Kairi from its reddish hair to its cute, girlish figure. The doll was wearing an exact replica of Kairi's pink outfit, minus the boots. Around its waist was a yellow paopu-shaped card. It had only two words printed on its front: "TICKLE ME."

He found his five-year-old son jumping on the bed with the radio playing "She Loves You" by The Beatles. "Sean, what are you doing? Get down from there!" John raised his voice an octave higher than it was suppose to be. He quickly went over to the nightstand and switched the radio off.
Sean stopped jumping. "I was dancing, Daddy!"
"Yes, I know you were," John said. "How many times have I told you not to go in the bedroom without me or Mummy around?" He came to the bed and picked Sean up in his arms, placing him back down on the floor.
"Lot's of times," Sean replied sadly. "But you're here now..."
"That's right..." John took a deep breath. He couldn't stay upset with Sean, because it was like looking at Yoko and that was difficult staying mad at her, too. "You have a warning this time, but next time's a time-out, okay honey?"
"Okay," Sean said with his bottom lip sticking out. His eyes were fixed on the radio, and John could see wonder and a little bit of what, recognition?

Humans could only go through the clouds safely with animals, so the illusion would prevent not only animals from entering the fake clouds below, but also be foreboding enough to make the humans fear even trying it.

I woke up to the most annoying sound ever. My alarm clock. Reaching for the button I sluggishly pulled myself up to a sitting position on the bed and my covers fell off. I stretched my arms widely and then inched towards the side of my bed to open a window. The sun was beating brightly and a ray warmed my cheek. I couldn't help but smile. "Today's going to be so much fun. But if I don't hurry, I'm going to be late!"
Quickly, I sprang out of bed and threw on some shorts and my favorite yellow and black shirt. "Thank god it's a field day and I don't have to wear that stupid uniform." I went over to the bathroom to brush my hair it really was a hassle sometimes, but that didn't stop me from winning the fight with it. I left the bathroom just to stop at the edge of the stairs.

we grew up together.
From quiet eyes
to daredevil smiles.
to rogue kisses
in the middle of the night.
In between lessons
of English and Maths
we discovered lust;
passion and friction,
that it never lasts
nearly long enough.
And now that goodbye
I can smile.
Thanks to you
I leave here battle scarred -
scars I'll cherish,
for they'll last longer than any

Because despite my protestations
that I'll never think of you again,
there will always be
one more poem to write,
and one more sad song

Dedication: Ken-chan himself, 'cause he's a sexy beast.
Rating: T (for swearing)
After a while, one got used to Kenpachi hiding in various places from his fifth seat. One of his more frequent hiding places happened to be in the supply closet in Retsu's office. She didn't mind, though, because Yumichika knew where his captain was anyway. After all, Yumichika wasn't really as stupid as his captain thought he was.
"Unohana taicho!" the fifth seat in question greeted, entering the room with a dazzlingly bright smile. "Have you seen taicho lately?" His eyes flickered to the supply closet door and he smiled vindictively.
"Not since this morning," Retsu replied, barely glancing up from her paperwork. She was almost finished, and she didn't need

it's time for a dominatrix.

she's really in her twenties,
her hair is in French braids
and she's cooking waffles.

She brings the last toppings to the table;

She double-checks, just to be sure

Summary: Things are peaceful in Hyrule since Ganon's defeat about a century ago by the Wielder of the Master Sword. Ever since the death of Hyrule's king, however, Zelda has noticed strange changes within her brother, the fellow holder of one of the three triforce pieces entrusted upon them. Fearing that it might be connected to the strange absence of contact with the other tribes as of late, she bequeaths a special request to the land's most skilled tracker to track him and find out what has brought out this change. Unfortunately, Zelda is right to be worried...
Zelda: Not much to her in this, other than being piercingly perceptive about issues being wrong.
Link: Link for this game is a renown tracker, meaning he knows stealth, tracking, hunt

When we met, your perfume
was as stale as the cigarette
stuck in your red mouth. I watched
the distant clouds, I ran sand through
my fingers, I did anything not to look at you
and still I could sense you there, strongly delicate:
on your long legs, your sunglasses
staring me down. My eyes met yours
as your lips parted. The smoke was
dissipating and there I was a small ghost of
with no sense of direction.
When we were inseparable,
they said we were willow trees
our roots growing in the same
soil, the same deep dark secret
earth. They said, they said
Our hearts were made of the same
materials: paper, poppies,
a handful of stars.

How perfectly we belong
My love for you can never be
My lust for you is my curse
When will I ever realize
