No, not who you were expecting,
But look, I'm smiling, for me
I'm no one pretty, I'm sorry
my smile turns others down
and what sad face I have- they say
Until now it never bothered me- not too much!
But hello again,
I haven't seen you in what seems like an eternity
Do you remember?
We used to sit over there- that's right!
That patch of grass and wildflower, the
swing set we'd sit on at night as children,
looking up to the stars- we'd talk about
how one day when we'd fall asleep forever, we'd be among those too.
I would be a star smaller than yours but we'd be stars together, and
you and I would have our special place, in the sky.
But hello again, hello.
I see you're happy, with her. Not me.
And hello again, why don't you look at me
like you used to?
Like you.. used to.
We'd talk about a family and children- when we were children!
But of course we knew nothing of what or how it actually-
Oh I apologize, I see now why you le

Stop smiling like you know what I’m about to do,

There can’t be two of us, of you, of me.

If you accidentally show yourself, I won’t forgive you.

I can still hear you,
Don’t do that.

What is Love? When all is Hate.
What once was a peaceful dream so
Lucid, so daring, so bold!
Now but remnants of a past-to-be-forgotten, I’m told.
As a child, I knew not of you,
What was false, or on the other hand, true
As eyes turn on me, cold,
You alone take me in your arms and hold
On to what is left of a little girl who never made it out
Of that dream to be forgotten.
I thought things were forever
Dare I say anything could die, for that was never.
But life is a funny thing, you know?
You believe so strongly in Now that when you look back..
Now was only Then and then you thought things were perfect
But as it passed, your view collapses. It shatters. Like a cracked window,
The view you saw, now distorted. Contorted. Deformed. Horrific.
I still believe in you. Even though all that has come to past has been nothing but true
And true it is, true with all the evil life could do
Though I look at you now, through seemingly flawless

That’s funny, I didn’t feel that
Maybe I’ll cover them up too
I’ll warm them up.
I’ll take a nap
Maybe a short rest will make it all better, warm them
What’s that? How long has it been?
My legs… are you still mine..
Why has my breath left me, short?
Has everything but deserted me?
What about you, are you still here?
Are you still with me?

But to him it wasn't that much of a bother.
He found a stone when in the Spine,
Little did he know that it was a great sign.
But the king got wind of what had become,
And Eragon knew he couldn't succumb.
The egg soon hatched, and a dragon was born,
He told not his family, for they would have sworn.
The Ra'zac soon came, in search of the pair,
But to their dismay, the two were not there.
Angered, the Ra'zac reeked hell on his house,
While Eragon hid with his friend, like a mouse.
He dug for his uncle, and Saphira helped too,
But, they discovered, there was nothing to do.
With Saphira the dragon, he and Brom fled,
While deep in his heart, the boy mourned for the dead.
The bard taught Eragon things he shouldn't have known,
If he had been just a storyteller alone.
Brom, he determined, was not as he thought,
But friendships like that, he couldn't have bought.
They bought horses and raced of to find a safe town,
But search high or low, one couldn't

I'll be a friend if you want;
long walks in the park,
cuddling up on the couch when it's dark,
playing catch or chasing you around.
I'll be a hero once I am found;
maybe I won't save your life today,
but give me a chance, it'll be ok
I'll make you happy, you'll want me to stay.
I'll be a listener when you need one;
I'll never interrupt, just lean my head
on your shoulder to listen closer
Or lay with you all night and day on your bed.
I only need a small few things from you -
a gentle heart, a caring soul,
someone who will take care of me even when I'm old
I promise you for my whole life
I will be there for you.

It was true, Piggeh's promise from months before no longer seemed to be valid. Things most certainly had changed. In fact, more had changed in the past six months than either of them had expected. Now, all that was left to worry about was living with those changes. Piggeh hardly left Jennifer's side; he was always there to bring her anything she needed and help her recover from her injuries. Days dragged on uneventfully, and before long a full week had passed since the attack. Those "next couple of days" that were estimated had long since passed, and still the predicted miscarriage had not happened. Jennifer wanted nothing more than for it to happen already, just so it could be over with; but Mr. Chair would remind her every other day, as he came up to redress her wounds, that it would happen when it happened.

I was a better person when I wrote about boys who'd never return my feelings on silver platters, and ships long lost, or drowned, at sea. It sounds like a disaster, but I only write well with the ashes of a crumpled, discarded spirit mixed with the still-warm tears of a troubled soul.
Words kept me human, for they are what makes us human, and they distanced me from the animal I could become. All I do now is stalk around the concrete city, pace about my enclosure, and think about how my bitterness and I can never be released in the wilderness again.
Before the city stole my words away, I was living in the harbor locked up in a crumbling lighthouse, hoping that some northeasterly wind would blow him back to me. I still yearn, but the sea-stained melody gets lost in the traffic and it's easier to be whole without it haunting my every second.
But, the truth is, I'm burning for more.

#94) I went to a brony meet-up and I thought it was pretty good fun until we went to Toys R Us. I was sceptical about a bunch of guys (no girls went to the meet) going to the little girl's section of the shop so I kept my distance and I'm glad I did – everyone there except for me became really creepily obsessive about the toys and it was embarrassing to be seen with them in the shop. After we left (I didn't buy anything and the girl on the till seemed really freaked out by us) I kind of felt awkward being seen with them and when they sang a song from the show really loudly at Pizza Hut I wanted to go home fast.

The wounds close as they silently heal.
The pain from the world that's both cruel and divine,

The halo shines against the blackness of night.
Creatures of sorrow, hate, and fear spread their pained wings to take air.
They still wait for their Goddess of the Night.
And hope that she takes on the fight.
They pray that she never gives up,
and hope she drinks from her youth-filled silver cup.
She murmurs the words "Do not fear,
For I am the one who is here.
The one and only Goddess of the Night.
The one who will calm your frights of the night."
