and I suppose it's because of you:
your page-pale skin is as beautiful
as any story, your ink-laced flesh
as lovely as any words. abstractedly,
I touch a birthmark, thinking of it
as a bookmark so that, in the morning,
I can begin you again.
Forget HimForget himForget Him8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Forget his face
Forget his kiss
His warm embrace
Forget the love that you once knew
Remember he has someone new
Forget when they played you song
Remember when you Cried all night long
Forget how close you once were
Remember he has chosen her
Forget how you memorized his walk
Forget the way he used to talk
Forget the things he used to say
Remember he has gone away
Forget his laugh, forget his grin
Forget the dimples on his chin
Forget the way he held you tight
Remember his with her tonight
Forget the time that went so fast
Forget the love that moved, it's past
Forget he said he'd leave you never
Remember he's gone forever...
Albino ravenHe often wondered whyAlbino raven1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
he couldn't bond with anyone else,
why his hands were always dripping
with salty sweat and liquid fire.
He grew up without a father
so he made his own,
he'd always punish himself for what
he thought was wrong,
hands would always be full of
uneven healed wounds,
he felt the need to tear off his scabs.
A jaguar. a cheetah.
a child full of spots on his skin.
He would often wonder why
he couldn't bond with anyone else,
albino raven in the shape of a boy,
his actions would only be
repetitions and charmless imitations of men,
in the end, he was
both inside and outside
he made sure his father remembered him that.
what had happened before
would echo into today,
his feathers turned white
from the shame and disgrace
of not having someone
to tell him
"I'm proud of you".

Mereu am facut-o, pentru ca stiu ca mereu o sa te intorci. O sa vii la mine cersindu-mi un sfat, rugandu-ma sa te ascult sau cuprins de ura ai venit cautandu-ti alinare. Mereu te-am asteptat, acolo unde m-ai lasat sau unde ai vrut sa ma uiti. Oricat de mult ai fi vrut, mereu gasesti o cale spre mine pentru ca sti ca eu o sa fiu mereu acolo cand ai nevoie si am sa te ascult, am sa te inteleg si am sa te ajut.
Stiu ca ma urasti pentru ceea ce sunt. Uneori ai vrea sa dispar, dar oare cum as putea face asta cand sunt o parte din tine. Sunt tu...si o sti prea bine. Ma urasti, doar oare cat de mult te urasti si pe tine? Ma vezi pe mine in oglinda de fiecare data cand te uiti, dar oare pe tine de ce nu te vezi? Oare de ce nu vezi ca eu oricat de mult as vrea sa am un Sine al meu, sunt modelat de vointa ta si ajung ca o sluga sa fiu tarat peste pamantul peste care tu calci. Iar intr-un final, tot eu sunt cel pe care il urasti? De ce nu vrei sa intelegi ca oricata ura ai arunca

Satula de intuneric si cuprinsa de frica vroia sa iasa afara, cuprinsa de caldura ta. O inima...nici nu stiu cum arata. Nici nu stiam ca asa ceva salasluieste in mine pana sa te intalnesc.
Dar acum si tu de indoiesti de existenta ei, si ma intrebai daca am asa ceva. Am, dar acum imi dau seama de ce am lasat-o ingropata atatia ani. Ii era mai bine printre suflete moarte. Acum vazandu-te cum pleci, tipa dupa tine. Ii e teama ca ca daca nu o sa te mai vad, toata ura mea, regretele mele si tot ce ramane in urma ta vor fi pamant pentru ea. Si simte ca numai rezista. Asa ca te rog, lasa bagajul jos, numai privi spre usa...

how hours seem to slip through your fingers
while you desperately try to cup your hands together,

I found a friend -
And a friendship that
I pray will never end.
Your smile - so sweet
And so bright -
Kept me going
When day was as dark as night.
You never ever judged me,
You understood my sorrow.
Then you told me it needn't be that way
And gave me the hope of a better tomorrow.
You were always there for me,
I knew I could count on you.
You gave me advice and encouragement
Whenever I didn't know what to do.
You helped me learn to love myself
You made life seem so good.
You said I can do anything I put my mind to
And suddenly I knew I could.
There were times when we didn't see eye to eye
And there were days when both of us cried.
But even so we made it through:
Our friendship hasn't yet died.
Circumstances have pulled us apart,
We are separated by many miles.
Truly, the only thing that keeps me going
Is my treasured memory of your smile.
This friendship we share
Is so precious to me,
I hope it grows and flourishes
And lasts unto infinity.

Ichigo and Rukia were lying down in the grass by the river, relaxing after a night of intense hollow fighting. So far, Rukia's phone had not gone off, so the two decided to take it easy and try to regain some energy and strength. It seemed simple, but Rukia quickly realized that not attending to their normal every day tasks was causing slight anxiety.
"This is really strange," Rukia said, looking at her phone. "Not a single hollow alert? This thing's gotta be broken."
"I will admit it's weird not fighting, but I don't think your phone is broken. Maybe hollow's need a day off too." Ichigo joked.

Big Macintosh didn’t mind though. If being bombarded with a little noise was the only price he had to pay to spend this afternoon with Fluttershy, he would gladly pay it. With winter slowly coming to an end, the various vendors of Ponyville were trying to sell off the last of their wares before the new produce was ripe for the coin making.

Ma opresc in prag pentru o clipa. Nu am vrut sa o sperii, asa ca m-am oprit sa o admir. Langa fereastra prin care cerul isi varsa intunericul unei ploi de toamna, ea lumina acea seara. Pe un scaun cioplit din lemn, canta. Asemeni unei pasari, un glas ce nu imi era dat sa il inteleg, sunete al caror ecou doar il simteam cum rasuna in jurul meu, ma faceau sa ma pierd. Adanc in ochii ei, in sufletul ei. Simteam cum traieste fiecare clipa, nota, picatura de suflat ce o torna pe clape si le facea sa rasune.
