Lie To MeFingertips lace around my ribs
And pull at my skin
As my breath catches
At the coolness of your touch.
Calm these trembling hands
And hold them tight in yours.
I'll move my lips on yours
Just so you don't have to.
Hearts beat faster and
My breath shudders with insecurity.
Press my body close to yours
So I don't shatter into fragments.
Lie to me one more time.
Tangle your legs in mine,
Brush your lips along my neck.
Make me feel alive.

The night where everyone lives in darkness. An everlasting night.
I want it to come I wish for it to come, a time when everyone suffers but I always find myself crying whispering for that to never happen, for no one else to suffer.
I'll stay up all night trying to undo the reckless wish I made and asking for all the pain and agony and suffering to be given to me so that no one else will feel it.
I wish for an everlasting night and then ask for an everlasting day where it will just be me in some dark corner of the universe suffering so that no one else has to.
And then the sun rises.
Slowly and subtly.
And I realise that while I'm here in pain everyone else is sound asleep.
Both my wishes are true; I have the night while everyone else has the day. The darker the night, the brighter the dawn.
I'm the one that steals the pain during the night and I'm the one who gets to see the dawn. I suffer but I see what no one el

Why, why do you keep coming from where I can't reach you...
It's done. Death did us part. Don't you understand!
Do not haunt me anymore.
Go back to where you belong...
To the living.
At leastYou were there when I slippedAt least3 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Something inside just skipped
The ground fell from beneath me
And I fell into the sea
My world dimmed and numbness set in
Water choked me and I forgot how to swim
My body got cold
And death had a hold
But you were there underneath me
You were where you needed to be
Your breath kept me warm
You made me glad I was born
I felt your heart beat
And finally found my feet
Maybe I'm not strong
But at least I have you to help me along

I once knew a girl with ocean in her eyes.
There wasn't anything particularly special about herat first glance.
It was those eyes and the stark beauty beheld in them that captured me the most.
She disappeared beneath the rising and falling ocean waves.
I felt like a bird caught in a draft of air rather than a girl who pushed and pulled by the ocean and gave up.
In; out. In; out. In
The Ocean is a thief, stealing shoreline's treasures.
I felt as if a pin was being held to my heart.
The timeworn journal is so old and tattered; the lined pages yellowed with age. The cover was threadbare; and could hardly retain its place on the spiral bound. Obviously, she had this journal endure through much in the past years.
"So?" She furrows her brows, giving me a look of mock anger.
"Can you at least give me a valid reason to why I can't read what's in there?"
At once, she snaps it shut. "You don't see me asking why I can't I see your photos, do you?" she count
