her face betrays no secrets,
but her hands have more to tell,
and I flinch to see that my hands

wonders of wisteria
glowing in warmth
of soft spring lights
such beauty invites
calling me to life
breathing colors bright
winds wash over
with hues of new life
i hear her call
as winter rains fall
for now must stay
waiting for wisteria
for seasons song to sing
I'm missing Spring.

There was a storm coming
They said lightnings would
Rule over the sky
And dark rainy clouds
Would cover the atmosphere
Doors and windows
I was alone
Admiring nature's rage
The raindrops fell down on me
The wind playfully blew around me
The sun could not pierce the clouds anymore
But suddenly it made me feel

Looking at the stars at night
Trying to count them all
But there were more than
She could ever imagine
She was accompanied
By the moon
The huge night
Was like a big black space
In front of her
But the stars came to her
And gave her imagination
She saw a little bear
Sleeping on the moon
And a smile appeared on her face
She dozed off
When a thousand snowy little birds
Came to close her eyes
And cover her
With a woolen duvet
To keep her warm
During this frozen dark night

Running through the crackling snow
Under my feet
Everything is white
White and frozen
I hear the trees
Whisper to each other
Words of secrets
I see the ravens fly away
Flapping their wings
As I pass by
Closer and closer
My breaths freeze
Into a white cold cloud
Nobody to be seen
Only the footprints I left behind me
When I close my eyes
A thousand snow white wolves
By my sides
Their ocean blue eyes
Freezing my heart
Cold but warm

Why do we trust in love...We all know it's too early for love.Why do we trust in love...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's just some words that will mean nothing
in just a few years.
We don't know what we want yet.
Yet we know what we want to want.
So tell me,
Why does my heart hurt when I think of you?
Why when I know I won't see you as much does it bring tears to my eyes?
Why do I feel so alone,
So without a love to call my own?
Why do I want you so bad?
I need you to love me.
I need you to take me in your arms,
And tell me everything will be ok.
I need you to return my feelings.
Even if it's faked,
I will give you my love.
Nothing like this has had my heart so twisted.
No boy, or man, no death,
Has made my soul so tortured.
Why do I love you so much?
When I know it will all just be a lie
In just a few years.
I just tell myself that,
To keep my heart from tearing in two.

The stars show up at night
But when I think of you
I feel like I'm cosily wrapped in
An autumn scarf
My hands in my coats woolen pockets
Watching the wind carry the leaves
Further and further
The sky is blue and clear
No clouds to be seen
But when I think of your eyes
I feel like I'm on a soft couch
In front of the warming fire
Watching the snowflakes fall down
Behind the window
The sun is dry and scorching
No rain to fall
But when I hear your voice
It sounds like a thousand bells
Ringing at Christmas Eve
While we're sitting next to
The Christmas tree
In the warm glow
Of the candles
Watching the snow
Holding frozen hands

"Caitlyn, I'm fine. Just sorting things out." I stood up slowly, shaking still from slamming and paralyzing myself. "Damnit Lin, don't do that to me! I hate it when you pass out randomly like that." I just looked at her stupidly,

"Frankie..... YOUR DEAD IERO"
I honestly did NOT mean to wreck Bob's favourite shirt, it just sort of happened. I tripped over my own feet, as I always do, and crashed into Bob, the blood red juice that was once concealed in my cup now soaked into the fabric of Bobs crystal white t-shirt. I legged it, running into the hallway and up the stairs. A furious Bob was hot on my tail, as the last step approached I felt a rush of relief as I was out running Bob.
My foot slipped sending my whole body crashing into the stairs, my teeth colliding with my tongue and lower lip. I felt the burst of a metallic taste in my mouth, red liquid streaming down my face before dripping onto the Persian blue fabric that carpeted the creaky stairs. I screamed out at the top of my lungs in pain. The stinging sensation in my mouth was phenomenal. I looked back at Bob; he was frozen at the step just below the one I was cradled on.

You refuse to stop and give up- you want to fix me.

Shit was all I could think as I watched the doctor's stitch up franks tongue. Each tiny thread ripped through the flesh and came out the other side, sending another tiny bead of blood down franks chin. I held his hand, he only flinched slightly at the pain. N'aww my big brave Frankie, soon Il get to kiss him all better.
"Ok Mr.Iero, that should be fine, the stitches will dissolve in a few days, just don't get up to too much... eh hem, activities that involve your tongue for a while and that should be fine"
I looked in the mirror situated next to the sink. JESUS CHRIST I still had Frankie's blood all over my face, I looked like freaking vampire. A burning sensation cursed through my cheeks and I could no longer look the doctor in the eye due to the state of my face.

As I tell them who she really is, I can see their smiles become strained.
When I give them a hug, I feel how they stiffen.
When I kiss you good bye, I know they are shaking their heads.
When they ask who else shares this ring, I should be able to say your name without fear.
They call us perverted, but they are the ones who focus on our love life.
They say we ruin family values, when they are divorcing and remarrying many times over.
They ask us how we can do this to our families, our lives, our children, and I can only reply,

What? Out of the corner of my eye I saw a small wad of paper fall to the floor, and my right hand subconsciously reached for the back of my neck. Making sure the teacher wasn't paying attention, I turned around and scanned the room for anyone looking suspicious.
One blonde girl wearing a Jonas Brothers t-shirt giggled obnoxiously, while the two jocks on either side of her smirked. I flipped them all off. I kicked the paper ball away from me, praying for the bell to ring soon.
As I power-walked (I hate that word, but it was accurate.) down the hallways, I remembered that I was getting a locker partner today. Apparently the kid had been having some troubles with his other partner, and I was he only kid without one that was convenient for his classes. He was a grade younger than me, too.
I remembered all of this because as soon as I turned a corner and was within spitting distance of my locker, I saw a midget brunette kid jumping up to reach the top shelf. I smirked, feeling

He made his way out of the bathroom, still dressed in his pajama pants but being shirtless, letting anyone admire his inked body. Rubbing one of his eyes to get rid of the desire of going to bed once again even though he wasn't that sleepy anymore, he narrowed a bit his eyes, listening some noises coming from the living room of the apartment he shared with his boyfriend.
It was like someone had burst into their apartment and was throwing everything down, like looking for something specific. He also noticed something else; Frank, his boyfriend, wasn't in their bedroom anymore. He had gotten up before Zacky, saying that he wanted a sandwich and stood up, leaving to the kitchen. Not long after he left, Zacky decided to simply obey his body when it said he wanted to pee.
But he knew Frank too well, that man as tall as a girl, black hair with a fringe falling to the right side of his face, hazel eyes and a very adorable smile. Whenever he wante

The young boy was named Frank Iero, though he insisted everyone called him Frankie. However, there was one point in time where he went through a stage in which he ordered everyone to refer to him as Princess Frankie the Third. But that stage has long since passed.
Now he was sitting criss-cross-apple-sauce, staring out the window with a dazed look on his face. A bird was cleaning its wings on a tree branch, and he watched it intently.
The circle continued to the next young boy, Raymond Toro. "Well, when I was really little, like 4, I wanted to be a astronaut, but I know that they don't even get real food and plus they can't control when they float, which is almost always all the time, so I think maybe I don't want to be

1. Do not have sex. Having sex is basically signing your own death certificate.
2. If you're either blond, big boobed, refuse to wear a bra, or all of the above, you're going to get killed, usually when you're fucking your boyfriend (who will also be killed, might I add.)
3. Never joke around and play pranks, because when you're really in trouble no one will believe you or care.
4. Don't go to the toilet at night, especially if it's an outside one, or if you're wear no or minimal clothes.
5. Same goes for showers, whether they're outside or not. Not only will you be unable to defend yourself, you will also die naked, which can be kinda embarrassing, and awkward for whoever finds you. Besides, who knows what the killer does with the body… *Shudder*
6. If you're running away, which you will be, make sure you're wearing proper shoes. High heels or bare feet usually end up in tears. And blood. A lot of blood.
