Perfect Christmas KissSadie chewed on her bottom lip as she stared at the empty page on the desk in front of her. The task was supposed to be an easy one; make a list of things she wanted for Christmas and give it to her parents. But every time she sat down to write it, she drew blanks. What did she want? There wasn't really anything she wanted. Her eyes strayed to her laptop at the sound of a beep. Someone had messaged her. She tossed her pencil down instantly and pulled up her Skype window. It was Jack. He had sent her a little message saying hello.
Jack Canton was the guy that Sadie had liked for a good while. He was in her grade and they'd been friends since the tenth grade, but she'd never become really close to him. A smile found its way onto her face as she typed a hello back. As she waited for his reply she picked up her pencil and started doodling idly on the page. The next automatic beep from her computer sent her heart

What I wanted to say
But then I saw your smile
And my thoughts disappeared
Who am I kidding?
I'm just fooling myself
I could never be with a guy like you
But it hurts to know that I'll never know your answer
Because I never took a chance
I couldn't because I was scared
I was scared of rejection, but more scared I would lose you as a friend when I told you the truth
That's why I didn't tell you why I'm still afraid to tell you
And then you smiled and asked me what's wrong
Honestly what was I supposed to tell you?
The words were stuck in my throat my heart was pounding so loud
I just wanted to tell you
Part of me wanted to get it done and over with
Like ripping off a band-aid.
I wanted the rejection quick so maybe it wouldn't hurt so much
But I guess that won't be the case right?
I didn't tell you and all your friends know.
Cause apparently talking to you everyday is 'how they know'
Yes I'm an idiot for convincing myself I was good enough for you,
But just one q

Your laugh and your ability to tolerate me
I miss how we always used to laugh
And our own little jokes
I miss the lunch times when it was just the two of us
When we were just able to talk to put away our facades and
Really be ourselves
Most of all I miss.......... You

and the words that come spilling out
between your beautiful lips pierce my mind and i can no longer make sense of
right and wrong
i'm blinded by red,
the blood boils and brews in my
veins and arteries but all i can make out
is the hazy outline of a future we should have had
my tears taste like defeat and
my tongue tingles and
every word i think of comes nowhere close to your perfection,
i hate that i don't know you
my fingers wish to dance along your body,
tapping out every hollow secret
that you swore to keep safe
from the world
i'm surrounded by my mind
and it won't let me go -
the chaos that ensues is no longer
my throat burns like
sin as my brain betrays my heart because
i'm screaming at the top of my
lungs things that i wished no one would hear

"I'll never regret anything more than the chances I didn't take with you,"
The days are over now
When I can hold you in my arms
It wasn't supposed to happen this way
Like two lovers parting, standing on a train platform
In an old black and white movie
The warm, sunny season ended too quickly
We both knew our summer could not last
You were destined for greatness
I couldn't hold you back
And now the leaves are turning and falling to the ground
There are no more moments when I can kiss you
Walking in the lonely, loveless gray city
There was nothing I regretted more than

I feel so empty without it
I feel like I'm forgetting something
Something solely important to me
Why can't I remember?
I'm left with nothing, but the thought
The thought that I'm missing a part of me
Could it be you that I'm missing?
All those dreams where being in you're arms
Makes me feel safe, loved and complete
But I don't know you
I don't know your name
I don't know what you look like
I don't know who you are
So why is it that you are such a big part of me life
Even if you're not in it right now?
What's wrong with me?
Why do I shed tears for the person that I don't know?
Why can I not remember you?
Why does my heart ache when I think of how someday?
Someday I'll be in your arms again
And how complete I'll feel
Who are you and why do you make me feel this way?
When can you get here because there's no way that I can?
Spend another day away from you
Where oh where are you
Why can't I be with you?

captivated by its movement
the way it sways your judgment-
a pendulum of pristine sovereignty.
Its the vibrancy of it,
that pulls you into the brilliance
the shining and sparkling of purity-
an amulet of immaculate elegance.
its the intensity of it,
that keeps you within its containment
the discernment and depth of the lucidity-
a treasure of exhilarating euphoria.
You look so intrigued,
by something you don't understand
but you love the way it makes you feel-
when you're not the one in control.

My mind goes blank and all I can do is smile
You have my heart doing flips
My stomach flutters with butterflies rising
God I don't know what's happening
What did you do to me?
Why do I feel like this? It's never been this way
You're smile is so sweet
Now all I can do is listen to love songs
You've got my thoughts hopelessly jumbled
And I can't think of anything to say when you're around
I wish I did so we could talk
I wish could talk just so I could hear your voice
Oh what's the matter with me?
What can this mean?
Why can I only think of you even when I should be concentrating?
Floating on air feeling so light I could float away
What did you do to me?
Everything's changing, it scares me
I can't stop it and I don't know what'll happen
I'm just hoping whatever does whenever it does
You'll be there with me

My heart will forever speed up
Whenever I see you whenever you smile
My thoughts will go blank and the butterflies will flutter
My feelings will never change or perhaps they will
Perhaps they'll grow stronger
But what I do know is my love for you is always true
My love will last through the end of the world
Through every trial and tribulation
It'll last forever in my heart
Through hell's eternal fire
And anything anyone can throw our way
My love is forever eternal
Like the stars that shine bright without fail every night
It'll last eternity even if I leave the world before you
My love will shine brightly down upon you from heaven
And every afterlife my love shall forge on
To find you just like you told me you would too
I believe our love can last the life and beyond
That not even Death's cold emotionless hands can pry apart
Our love is forever never forget it baby
Our love is forever our love is eternal love
I'll be eternally yours if you'll be eterna
RequiemThe steps creaked as I ascended the stairs. Their sound the calls of lost souls begging for redemption.Requiem4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Without a single thought I followed the corridor in front of me silently fearing the cause I came for.
I rounded a last corner and there it was.
Only the grand oak door separated me from the room I kept locked away in the depths of my heart.
Its handle like a knife.
Dust had settled here as on every surface in the house but the black instrument in front of me had lost none of its magnificence.
I lifted the lid above the claviature, slowly, to not wake the sleeping ghosts guarding it.
My fingers graced they keys, they felt foreign under my touch. I played a note which hovered in the air even long after the sound had vanished.
The beginning of Chopin's "Marche Funébre" began to fill the room.
But it was untuned.
Forgotten in the debris of someone's past.
Since she left these rooms, these halls, only the illusion of her presence pretended to play here anymore.
She walked this house

You know you're not the best. You never will be. Your life has been a wreck from the beginning, and all that time you've been running to the point of exhaustion. Running from your family. Responsibility. Yourself. This is one race track that has no finish line, my dear. You're like a bird without legs. Always on the move, never landing to take a rest. The only time you'll touch ground is when you die!
And don't even get me started on all those shames you know you'll never tell anyone. Those little secrets that eat away at your sanity when you wake in the middle of the night and cry yourself back into oblivion.
You know you're worthless. You've always known that.
Who on earth could love someone like you?
I'm inclined to disagree. You see, somebody does love me. And by thinking that I would be loved because I deserved to shows that you don't understand the concept of love

The wind blows; gently.
Almost like a soft unspoken whisper.
Your arms wrap around my body,
Oh so close!
Your lips, little by little, meet mine,
Firm yet rough, passionate but romantic..
Your even breath,
The quick palpations of your heart,
Racing against my own.
The cold traces of your fingers,
Tenderly caressing my face.
The love in your eyes,
And the tenderness in your words,
Blandly melts my heart.
As my soul reflects in all honesty,
The love my heart holds for you.

Since I've laid eyes on you
You smiled and my heart raced
You spoke and my heart stopped
The sun shone on you
Light golden rays
You hair glittered
Your body so chiseled
You walked past me
With such elegance and grace
You looked around
Catching my eyes for a moment
You smiled at me ..lighting up your eyes
I struggled to breathe as my heart raced
I smiled barely able to keep the blood from my cheeks
You're so beautiful
Yet you don't realize it
You walk away and I stare
Wishing I had the courage
To tell you how I feel
To say it loud
To say it proud
Baby I love you

Sometimes all I want is to be close to you.
I don't care about anything else.

Your fingers intertwined with mine.
