in the steel brackets and metallic structures i photograph
i see your dreams imprinted in their framework
i see your smile in the daffodils that grow at their feet

One tear fell.
That's all I remember happening in that previous moment, before I found myself quickly latching onto his blue jeans, refusing to let go of my Father. I was trapping him in my grasp. I felt the rough material sink deeply into the palms of my tiny hands, but even with that knowledge, and despite that, I knew that I no longer cared about the discomfort of myself-- all I wanted was for him to stay. To stay with me.
I couldn't tell if he was looking down at me or not, but he had stopped moving. He knew he was trapped, between the open door and the small weeping mess below him. He could either fly out of the door into a fresh start, or stay with this small child, whom was crying for him to stay. I didn't want him to leave.
"Daddy...don't leave me..." Mumbling my words, I hope I got the right ones across to him. I felt my Father flinch, before looking up at him, my eyes only projecting a messy and blurred vision of him.
His own blue eyes, as I ushered those

“Dad! Dad!” I cried happily as I ran into the throne room.
My father turned his head towards me as a kind and caring smile spread upon his face. He stepped down from his throne and hovered to me as we met in the middle of the room. Bending down, he picked me up in his arms and spun in a few circles, still hovering, as my laugh echoed throughout the room.
“There you are!” my father said as he stopped spinning, placing me on the floor. “I was beginning to wonder what my little girl was doing.”
“Dad! Look what I can do!” I closed my eyes, held out my arms bent at my elbows, and focused. After a second, I felt a bit of power form in my chest and make its way to my hands. In a flash, there was an empty glass sitting in my hands and a small cotton candy cloud floating above that. A dark brown liquid, known as ‘chocolate milk’, fell from the cloud and filled the glass from the top down.
“My, my!” my father smiled
Our RelationshipI think it's funnyOur Relationship1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
That even with how much I like you
And how close you and I are
We don't seem to touch each other
As much as I'd like
It still seems like there is a sort of barrier
And neither of us knows what to do
Or what is ok
It seems like we are hiding
What is between us
If there is anything between us
It is hard to tell where we stand with each other
At least from my end
And even though I'd like to know
I don't mind how it is now
Because we're still close
And I like it too much to give up

Left then right, then left again.
I'm taking two steps forward,
Ready for the challenge,
And then I take two steps right back again.
I'm at a standstill.
Time has suddenly stopped.
I hear my shaky breathing.
I hear my heart beating.
Then I don't step forward, I run.
I run until I can't run anymore.
I run until I collapse,
In the middle of nowhere,
All alone. But not alone,
Because I have me.
Everything that was evil,
That was holding me back,
I broke past them,
And left them far behind me.
And I am never going back.

and as I float, over caverns deep
I outline broken bonds so steep
of when we were close as peas
the seasons rolled in waves
the days, like leaves in a breeze
across the sea, the world was ours
but alas, dreams of you won't keep me warm
forever more, the bridge between a young heart cries
"I've drifted too far from shore!"

A mysterious landscape,
islands floating in the sky.
unlike those of Earth.
You step on the edge,
and look down.
Spread out your wings,
even if you don’t have them.
into the deep.
mysteries await you.
Black and white,
rain and sun.
Soar through them all,
lifted by your non-existent wings.
A sudden rumble,
the islands crumble away.
What is up,
what is down.
You fall deep,
hit the ground.
Open your eyes,
welcome back in reality.

I've cried already and tearing up again.
Okay. I have a 12 year old Yorkie goin on 13. He was diagnosed with heart failure (CHF) a few months ago. He has been normal since, with the occasional hacking cough. He has an enlarged heart too. Today when I woke up, when he saw me, he seemed normal: happy. I went to pet him and he began to hack. Which is normal for a small one to occur when he's excited. Since then, he's been breathing a bit heavily and hacking more. He's calmed down since, not much hacking, but he's still breathing heavily. I read some articles online saying that he would live no more than a few more years I'd we take good care of him. I knew this was coming; I didn't expect it to be so soon.
If anyone has a similar story they'd like to share to make me feel better or just want to try and cheer me up, I'd appreciate it. I have school tonight and don't want to be sad for that. I also have homework to do, but I just need something to cheer me up and
I Knew You Were LeavingI knew you were leaving...before you left.I Knew You Were Leaving1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
You were letting me go...a minute...an hour...a day at a time.
You told me, not in words, but in the withdrawal,
of all which bonded two, as one. Our time together,
no longer, a time of love and caring, but moments
of uncomfortable silence and trite conversation.
I know you were leaving before you left...
I just didn't know how to make you stay.
