After the baby was born . . . she started getting sick. She had a terrible fever for a while that left her bedridden for a week. She would get sick about a couple times a year and all would last about three days . . . but there was something about this one that was different. Maybe it was because she was older and her body couldn't work as fast as when she was a teenager.
The fever subdued . . . but her cough remained. She progressively became weaker, her body ached, and she had become short of breath. She was always weak to his eyes, but never that weak. It especially started bothe

I can see the tears forming around your eyes.
And I can see your fears building up inside.
I can see your confused and tired of life.
I can tell you wish everything felt right.
I can tell your sad and just want to be held.
I can tell you fake that smile and that your going through hell.
I can tell your afraid and fed up with the pain.
I can tell your feelings are hard to explain
All you need is for someone to come along.
And take your fears away so they'd be gone.
Someone to keep you warm when your shivering and your cold.
Someone of whom with your future will unfold.
Someone to take your hand and hold on tight.
Someone to hold y

"Like totally!" he stated loudly. It was almost becoming like a catchphrase for him, it usually just slipped out of his mouth and when he said it he would always make her giggle. He really liked it, the edges of her mouth turned up and the light squeal sound that came with it. He was speaking with ____ his best friend over the telephone. Her voice was so cheerful as she laughed at his response " Oh, I'm sorry Feliks but I have to leave, Toris should be here here any minute now. Bye! " Oh... Toris, again? Wasn't he there yesterday? "Oh well by-" he barely had time to say his goodbye before she hung up on him. I guess she was in a hurry... Come

It's funny how things work.
We can never control what life throws at you.
Nor can we ever change the hand we have been dealt.
You were my friend.
You were my world.
I looked up to you.
And knew you were strong.
Even after all you went through,
Even after all that was taken from you...
You were strong.
You were proud.
You were a lesbian and you were amazing.
You were a princess in name as well as in heart.
I know now no one will ever fill your shoes.
I know now Things won't ever be the same.
It was at this very time that things got worse for you a year ago, and despite everything you still held on.
You still fought.
And if I k

Perrin had enough of all of them. Nobody listened to her. Her father always took action too late. Willow always thought they shouldn't do anything. And Rivek. Rivek was the worst. He just agreed with anything Willow said.
She wrapped her arms around the branch above her head and hoisted herself upward. Let them find her here, she thought, as she lifted herself up by another rung. If they actually wanted to listen to her - or maybe even apologize - they would have to come looking for her.
As she brooded, nestled in the broad arms of the oak, she heard music. She should have picked a tree further away from the castle. A boy with san

I see your lies,
I drink your wine.
I see the deception,
I close my eyes.
I do not care.
Lies or truth.
Believe or not.
I see the lie,
It is in the drawing.
I see the truth,
It is in a stranger's picture.
I see you are a prostitute,
you can't hide your heart.
You worship no God,

The following few weeks sucked. I mean really sucked. We arranged interviews with as many of Carter's ex-girlfriends as we could sniff out. Melissa Burnham was happy to help out with names but it was obvious she was disappointed that no progress had been made since I'd last seen her. That didn't help me feel any better.
We didn't learn anything from the exes. We recorded all of the interviews and passed the videos onto L, but he concluded the same. We still scheduled periodic meetings after each new interview. The uncomfortable atmosphere in my office never got any easier. Every meeting would end up in awkward silence, at which point L

"Jack, I said no ball in the hall."
Reminded Jinny with her call
-"But what is it about my ball
that I can’t play with it in the hall?"
Jinny glared at the little clown
"It will turn the hall upside down."
-“Turn upside down? That's a neat trick!
How do you do that? With a kick?"
-"You kick that ball and I'll pull your ear
You can play outside, but never here."
Jinny walked away and left Jack aware
about the ball in the hall, it was no dare.
Jack quickly ran the hall to play outside
but running made his shoelaces untie
He tripped and the ball flew off his hands
It knocked four vases and two table stands
And right after the

Minimal signs of life
But no more and no less
Than of a parasite
Feeding from a life-force
That's greater than itself
We are the lost children
In need of some help
X-ray images show
The absence of a heart
Incapable of love
We are ready to depart
All these forgotten girls
And all these forgotten boys
Together we will feel
The emptiness, the void
As MRI scans show
We have beautiful minds
Just no memory recall
Of any happy times
It's too little, too late
These words are verbose
We've long since departed
We are already ghosts

Sopravvissuta a 'n amore, er più dolce,
sentivo la voglia de sta' un po' da sola.
Tornavo alla vita con il contagocce,
ma appena t'ho visto... nodo alla gola.
Mani possenti, dentro 'e saccocce.
Te sei avvicinato e senza parola,
sguardo che scioglie anche le rocce,
m'hai fatto 'n sorriso... a me, tutta viola!
"Me chiamo Marco" hai detto impacciato.
M'avessero dato un cielo de carta...
le stelle, i tuoi occhi, avrei disegnato.
Me so' sciolta tutta: "Ciao... sono Marta".
De colpo me sento 'no Stato assediato.
Sei tu il mio guerriero, vieni da Sparta.
L'Amore ricama le strade del fato
co' cura e premura, come 'na sarta.

Hey there, it's been awhile, do you remember me?
I guess you might not, since I wasn't very important to you.
You know, I spent so many days thinking about - what I did wrong
I questioned if maybe, I was at fault or if I was screwed up.
I thought a lot about the things you said...
The things that were my fault, my problems.
I took them to heart at first, but then I realised you were wrong.
I realised that you are selfish and ugly on the inside.
On the surface you pretended to care, but like a cancer;
You amputate someone the moment you think they've gone bad.
You hide from the rigours of life and only emerge l

Don't you remember when you were young?
When the world seemed so bright.
The stars shined ever so bright every night.
You were happy to just play all day,
Never knew you were wasting your life away.
You were a child,
and to you the future was so bright.
You couldn't wait to grow up and make a difference,
to show the world who you were.
But then you grew up.
You had to go to school.
Your wild spirit was labeled as a mental defect.
You were told to shut up and sit down.
They didn't care what you stood for,
because you were a child,
and children don't know what they're talking about, right?
Through the years you were told you
