We shouldn't have known each other, despite living so close. I was living in Kearny, New Jersey and he was from Belleville, a twenty minute bike ride away, but we ran in different circles. I guess, you could call what happened a chance meeting, it certainly wasn't planned. It was about midnight on a Saturday; we were the only people on our train carriage.
As we got on the train from New York to New Jersey, I approached him. My feet stepped in front of one and another, but they were heavy, trying to hold me back. I muttered "Hey" and sat on the seat in front of him, waiting for a response. He looked at me for a moment and said "Hello, do I know you?"
"No, you don't, but I have twenty minutes on this train, so I thought I'd say hello!"
A small smirk came on his lips and he said "Yeah, okay. Well... I'm Gerard"
"Frank, most people call me Frankie though. What you coming back from?"
"Bit forward, aren't you?" he smiled and carried on "I was at a late meeting. I started a comic book a few m

You came walking back from (work|school). As you entered your home, you glanced at the clock that sat on top of the wall, it was 5:13 p.m.,
with that you sighed. 'Come on give me a break clock, dont taunt me!' you thought. So while you sat there like a couch potato, thinking and
preparing your self for the up-coming visit. You really did'nt want to do anything offensive to him. Peering at the clock again, the time was

In Between Dreams
A fragment of a second
Just one slight glance
You're the only person
That puts me in a trance
I feel so close to you
But I am so far away
If only you knew
I felt this way
To fully express this feeling
It's like raw torture at heart
Because you live on without knowing
And it makes me desire you even more
A solace night of dreaming
I thought I never would have it
This longing luxury of sleeping
It's what I've always wanted
I thought it was too much to ask for
A sense of rest and relief
I feel as if it's more than I deserve
It's been so long since I had this nightmaric disease
I wish you could know
Of the peace that you bring me
It's something I never had before
I'd give anything to always have this serenity
Never again do I wish to awake
I can't let this placebo end
It's for my own sake
I can only pretend
When I see your face

"Yes, but you only get to stay if you behave yourself," Remus said, going back to his paper.
Sirius frowned, then plopped down on the other's feet. "You and your stupid rules."
"Hey," Remus said, kicking him gently, warningly, "don't knock the rules."
Messer Black did not look all too pleased."Bloody stupid." He murmured with a shake of his head.
Taking this as an excuse, Remus kicked him again. "Bad dog."

Sirius peaked up for a moment, looking for Remus; that prefect always seemed to be disapproving of their brilliant plans.
After deeming it safe, he returned to their plans. Of course, it was something meant to humiliate Severus, that little greasy git.
"And after we do that"

"Don't forget the fire whiskey"
"This is bloody brilliant!"
"Fire whisky and dungbombs?" Remus asked, not bothering no look up from his textbook (yes, he was reading a Defense Against the Dark Arts textbook for fun).

that remains tucked away,
saved for special occasions
when it will be seen.
It is almost always midnight
black, or blood red, and
covered in lace, or made
of mesh, soft and delicate
as the skin it covers.
Such things should be hidden,
lest the owner be labeled
as something other than "lady."
It has a power we can't
control, one that transforms
denim and cotton clad
ragdolls into Barbies,
perfectly proportioned plastic,
smooth and flawless hourglasses
that turn on command.
We groan and flinch
as satin strings pull us
apart and together,
and heartstrings are plucked
as we scrutinize our reflection;
we are not diamonds
with perfect exteriors--
we are fractured, as we
realize hourglasses can be exchanged
for quartz watches that are
faster, more convenient,
incapable of failure
made by the obsolete.
The Drunk Cow and the Shy CowIt had been three long days since Belle had gotten the girls to go "full time" in their new positions. It was around noon as the young witch/farm owner was counting the huge haul of Jewels for the day. Belle continued to revel in the amounts of Jewels she been receiving. She wasn't aware at first that making them full time cows would actually broaden the amounts of milk each of them gave every milking session. She would be lying if she had said she wasn't ecstatic at the turn of events. Not only had she gotten a trio of cows, she also got tons of Jewels for their milk. She actually began to refer to them as her "cash cows."The Drunk Cow and the Shy Cow4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Looking at somebody half dreaming
Thinking about what it would be like
If the two of you were alike
We don't want to face rejection
Fearing that we worsen our self reflection
When we talk to them all we can do is stutter
Sometimes we just need a little courage
Everybody has courage no matter what their age
So whenever you're feeling shy
Don't just stand there and sigh
Remember that just 20 seconds is enough
Even if it's all just bluff
Believe in yourself
Cause when it comes to love
You are the only person that could beat yourself

Remus was in his bed, sitting cross-legged on the bed. He was examining a calendar with a frown.
He walked over to the bed, rubbing his eye sleepily. "What'cha doin'?"
"Just looking over some things," he sighed.
He plopped down on the bed, stretching his legs out. "What things?"
"I've got the thing next week," he sighed. "I feel like it's going to be particularly bad this month."
He nodded his head, sighing. "Ah, well, I'll be there, so will James and Peter~" He gave an encouraging smile, knowing how painful his transformations were.

You have to yield a certain amount of ground in order to offer yourself wholly to another person, no matter what you ask for in trade.
