New lifeI knew it, as soon as the light of the sun was shining in my eyes, I knew it. I was finally free. They wouldn't be able to find me here. A smile slowly crept on my face when I felt a soft breeze hit my face. Yes, I was finally free. This would be my time to heal. I grabbed the small backpack that had been leaning against my leg, put it on my back, and with one last look at the airplane, I left.New life4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He would be picking me up in the entrance hall. It was rather strange, I never met him before but I knew that I could trust him with my life. I found the exit and stepped into the big hall. I shivered a little; open spaces like this scared me because you never knew who would be waiting for you there.
I looked around for you, hoping to see you but I couldn't find you anywhere. The whole hall was filled with people and I couldn't recognize you in all those different faces. I had nothing to worry about though, because you recognized me. I wasn't sure it would be you, until you asked me t

FairytaleOnce upon a time,Fairytale3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There was a girl,
She called herself weird,
To strange for this world.
Then there was her prince,
But she was scared to believe,
Scared to trust, scared to live,
Scared to think and scared to see.
He made her think about her life,
He made her trust and hope,
He told her she should think about,
This wicked, wicked world.
But one thing she had never guessed,
He loved her but for true,
She never thought that he would tell her,
'I want to be with you.'
So there she was still shocked with life,
Having someone on one knee
Telling her he loved her,
And everything she'd ever be.
She took her first risk ever made,
She trusted him for sure,
Wondering, was it really worth,
Taking the risk for?
Once upon a time,
There was a girl
She called herself weird,
To strange for this world.
But now there's a girl,
And you might have never,
Never thought it'd end like this,
But they live happily ever after.

Like everything is my fault?
Like I'm all alone in this world?
Like I'm an outsider in my own family?
It keeps happening
Over and over
And I can't stop it
I don't know if its because of you
Or because of Nana
But this feeling inside me
Its eatting me alive
And I can't stop it
Sometimes I wish I could just die
This feeling of lonelyness
I know for a fact that its because of you
Because you left me
And now everything is coming back to haunt me
This ringing in my head
It drives me crazy
I can't feel anything anymore
This is the monster you created
This monster inside me
It's all because of you

dime que razón me das de calor, de inocencia y de trovador.
Ya que las superficies inhóspitas de tu cordura me son ajenas, debo de entrar navegando en las arenas de tu locura, verte a los ojos cociendo caricias ignoradas en la historia de nuestra unión, viendo por siempre y hasta el fin estas creencias exageradas, banalidades de petulancia y de prejuicio, o el fondo de las arenas de este tu desierto abierto de pecho.
A media noche descubro tu realidad, no veo mas haya de tus vítreos ojos, que no han dejado ver tu horizonte, que no me permiten tomar el sueño, el manto de mis lamentos ni la realidad de tu cuerpo.
¿He visto aquellos viejos lagos de sal solo para perderme en tu ironía?

My Apology.At the risk of being too late,My Apology.3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There's something I'd like to say.
Here is my blanket apology,
One strictly about me.
I'm difficult and hard to handle.
I'm not a trophy for your mantle.
I'll treat you very wrong,
And in the morning I'll be gone.
You'll start to care for little things,
But never have I clipped my wings.
I have a habit of running,
I'll leave you waiting and wanting.
You'll fall deep into my eyes,
And I'll make yours cry.
I tend to leave without any notice,
Still you'll be a person of the lotus.
I'll leave you in a euphoric state,
You'll start to think it's fate.
My slate is grim with mire.
But together we'll make a fire.
You'll feel perfect for the day,
And then I'll be on my way.
It's not to say I don't love you,
It's just I like to start fresh and new.
Broken hearts never belong to the wild,
But I guess I'm just a scared child.
I may run back to your arms,
By then you'll be immune to my charms.
It's okay if you turn away,
I know the price I have to pay.
I warned you of

Her pain and sorrow,
Be here today and tomorrow.
The glass of her eyes,
Covered by silent lies.
A seemingly stunning fate,
Choked by obvious hate.
Her beauty and perfection,
She sees only a tainted reflection.
The fear of loneliness and rejection,
Just part of her misconception.
Haunted by the memories in her mind,
Parts of her no one will find.
She'll see every last mistake,
Was just a risk she had to take.
The scars of an ugly past,
On through her eternity will last.

That while I love you, you should love me.
While you're gone your secret becomes mine,
But that doesn't stop the blurring line.
What you don't see, I do.
Even when you aren't there I become special for you.
Your senses will come, I think.
But at night I don't sleep a wink.
That love becomes stronger still,
You will not break my heart's will.
I know the love I feel is true,
Though the reality gives me all to rue.
Every day you will be in my heart,
I cannot bear to let you part.
You are my dream, never to come through,
For now, you are everything, and I love you.
The Vampire King part nineCassy spun around gripping her chest as if to keep her heart from flying out. She saw a silhouette in the doorway, but she did not have to see the face to know who the voice belonged to. "I-I didn't mean to I just saw this from the d-doorway and " Cassy stuttered. "I do not mind, please, make yourself at home. My home is your home." Mael said and joined her by the fire. He was dressed in a deep red shirt, long sleeved, that buttoned up the front. From the way it dully shimmered in the flickering firelight, Cassy guessed it was made of silk. His pants were black, form fitting, showing off his tapered waist and making his shoulders seem all the wider.The Vampire King part nine4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

To Dream of FallingI dream of falling.To Dream of Falling4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
It's not a dream common to angels. After all, we have a pair of wings--or two or three--and we can use them. We float upon the air, dance among the stars, shape the clouds with our breath, and so on. All that lovely wordplay to describe an indescribable. A joy, a graceless power. Flight.
Humans dream of it often, I am told. It makes sense. They have no wings save for what they create with their hands. Airplanes, hang gliders, helicopters. Kites. They are obsessed with the sky, more so than the angels themselves, many of whom will fly three thousand miles rather than walk across the street.
And yet I dream of falling.
And in my dreams, I always start out as what I am--a bookish secretary pushed into a role never intended for him--and I always end as a human.
And the first thing I feel is falling.
Sometimes I jump off the edge of one of the Heavens.

Where smiles and laughter fix everything
You're going to hit your head hard
When you wake up from that dream
And realize laughter's nothing
Smiles don't do anything
And life's harder then it seems

One believes in strength it is the unaffected sun
Whose radiance delivers unquestionable influence
across naïve voids,
Leaving them with suave birrs
While offering not a single embrace.
And these wisps of apathy coalesce into amygdalae,
Submitting fear back to the licentious eye
Such poison is the most beguiling comfort.
The other confides in repose it is the soft moon,
skulking just beyond the light's purview.
Ungoverned by the miserly,
Its heart conceals all in heterotelism,
Painting detached episodes over an azoic canvas
left to be emblazoned by the ravenous haze,
Defining purpose with feigned transcendence.

And it was all just a trick.

But now you make me sick.
Everything that reminds me of you is gonna die.
