StorytellerI wish I could collect people's stories
and put them into a book.
You know, the stories people tell their friends
at the lunch table
before and after school
minus the more personal stuff, of course
and the mean comments are out too-
but all of that-
all of the stories, I mean-
I wish to share with the world in a book.
I want to tell the stories
that people tell their friends and family
about their days
I want to hear the colors
see the words
taste the pain and joy
that others experience in their stories.
I wish to tell people's stories
in a book for you and I to read
so that we could share our stories
with each other
one of these days.
I still love you. "Hey Rob." I said, placing a dozen red roses up against his gravestone as I sat down. "God, this is so weird... Listen, I'm sorry for not coming by since the funeral, it's just that things have come up, and who am I kidding? You're dead, and I still can't lie to you. It's just been so hard without you." Tears started making their way down my cheeks. "I, I can't do this." I started crying harder, and I couldn't stop. I then felt arms slip over my shoulders and hug my neck gently, and a slight weight on my back. I didn't bother checking to see who it was, because I already knew. Rob. His scent engulfed my nostrils, calming me down a little bit.I still love you.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Yes you can." I heard his voice as clear as day.
"No I can't." I said, sniffling.
"Mike, you are the strongest person I know."
"That was all because of you. You made me strong " Silence filled the pause. Rob's arms were still around me, hugging me. His scent still filled the air. This felt so much like old

Don't take it as a sign of weakness
I'm the one who is weak
I need you like the air I breathe
My heart aches whenever you leave
Only when you're with me, it beats faster
It makes me whole again
I'm not so lonely anymore
Not so broken and barely held together
You help me let go of my hurt
And I almost forget, almost
Because my nightmares eventually come back
But little by little you take some of those parts away with you
I'm sorry I make you go through the trouble
You don't seem to mind
You do all the work
And pretend that you aren't tired
You are so sweet and kind to me
But this isn't just a matter of my debt to you
I'm doing this because I care about you
I admire your protectiveness and loyalty
And how your smile brightens up my day
And how you make me laugh
It's all because of you
You make me happy
You make me a better person
You give me something no one else has ever given me
You give me love
And I am returning the favor
Do you understand what I am saying?
I truly love

Cloud my dreams with your wicked design.
Ensnare my mind with your blacken haze
Transfix my eyes with your phantom gaze.
The lights fade low
The pain doth show.
Confound by all, I love it so.
Engulf my soul and cradle my fears
Rain down on me with your nightfall tears.
Whisper to me your notions of death
Prey onto me with every waking breath.
The cold winds blow
The blood doth flow.
Enticed by all, I love it so.
Perchance I scream from your soothing touch
Constrict my heart in your velvet clutch.
Slay me softly the way that you do
All that I love resides within you.
The shadows grow
The world doth go.
Yet tell me why I love it so.

Okay, well um. Where to start? You'll probably never read this. In fact, chances are it won't even reach you. I'm probably just writing this for myself, you know. For therapeutic reasons. I guess I should just say all this stuff. Especially by now, but it helps to write things down or else I stutter and forget, and generally make an idiot of myself.
It's September 3rd today. That means it would have been our two years and 6 months anniversary. You know I always complained that month anniversaries were for twelve year olds but you always kinda liked the idea so happy hypothetical anniversary. I know you'd probably roll your eyes at me, bringing that up and I'm aware that it's been well over a year since now you, uh, left me. Well one year, three months, and sixteen days. I think right now, I've finished the process you know? And I've finally come to terms with the fact that you're not going to come backever. And I think I'm out of the phase where I just lie on my floo

with sparkly water drops like crystals in his eyes?
she's perfect. she's stunning. she's everything
he would think everyday with his clueless,
cliched, love-loving mind.
do you see the way she struggles with every step & thought
as she walks through the halls attracting every turning heads
like a magnet with crushed, powdered, cereal. but every day
the same thought runs straight into a dead end wall over and over again.
why do i even bother eating that disgusting stuff?
but boy, do you know what she's thinking
and her secret to her beauty? do you know the second the door
is closed and the window curtains are closed pitch black,
the faucet is turned on full blast and the fingers begin to go down
her throat? do you know her notsoclean, notsolittle secret?
and girl, have you listened to all the rumors being twittered
and slipping through the holes of the little pearly cages
they belong in? you would hear she's anorexic, the stick thin bi
