The slight mischief playing in the light of his face.
With but the slightest of a wink, he had me and I felt my

I was nudged back into reality by Josh, my best friend of 7

As I was snapping out of my dreamy state, I see a slight

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-

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

I glance away for a second, it seems, and my feet are cold
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?

Why has my breath left me, short?
Has everything but deserted me?
What about you, are you still here?

EragonEragon was raised without mother or father,Eragon9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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 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.

The ebony hedgehog slowly made his way inside the poorly built house which could barely stand up itself on the soft ground it had been misplaced at.
Since an almost torrential rain had fallen upon the factory he was working at, his black pelt was completely wet. He didn't care as he shook himself off the water from his fur. Below his barefoot a little puddle had formed, but he paid no mind yet again because he only wanted to be welcomed by that warm smile that was always expecting him at the little kitchen.
His feet took him to his destination. He was very glad to see his cobalt love preparing the food with as much love and dedication as he always did. An apron was covering up his peach chest.

Your heart stopped beating.
Your time is done.
And yet you stay,

Do you still recognize me?
I know I've grown.
Were you always here,

Why can't I see you?
Is there something I lack?

I know it's true.
His innocent eyes

Are you his friend now?

Did we have a fight?

Were you tired of talking?
Tired of the song?

I feel it in your soul
The life you live is seeping through your pores
You are so young,
Brave and strong and at some point
You were free.
How I wish I could reclaim you,
Stop you from going cold,
I have never been the most patient,
But for you I will always try.
When you first held my hand I knew
That I would never stop belonging to you.
To see you now breaks my heart
I can see it breaks yours
The spark you had is long since dead
Or curled up somewhere dark inside your head.
There is no life in those blue eyes
That used to strike me dumb
Your words carry no meaning
Every breath you take is laboured
You used to see light in everything
Now all you see is dark.
Your love of just being alive
Is the thing I miss the most.
It crushes me that I am not enough
To keep you on this earth
Without you I could not be me
Because if you jump I jump,
Just like the movies

And I had no regrets whatsoever.
It'd been about a week since we'd arrived here, so we'd had quite a bit of time to attempt
to make our conversations and actions amongst each other far less awkward, but we'd failed
miserably. So there we were, best friends, sitting on the front porch steps of his parent's house,
as awkward and quiet, as we'd been for a while. Silence. Complete and utter silence.
I couldn't remember when exactly Taylor and I'd started planning this, but I'm pretty sure
it began as a joke. I mean, I'm not even sure quite how often I stated that I was going to make

You had been dating Arthur for about a year now. He is such a gentleman and perfect in your eyes…Except for one thing, he’s hiding something from you. How do you know this? It’s obvious; he rarely lets you go to his house and when you do he spends hours cleaning it before you do and there are certain rooms that you’re just not allowed in at all. Also about once or twice a month he completely disappears for the entire night. And he has this strange way of getting exactly what he wants. You desperately wanted to know what he was hiding.
You couldn’t take not knowing anymore. One day you visit him out of the blue, without a warning for him to clean up. You pounded on the door and when he opened it his eyes widen. “________...

The darkness surrounded her and she raised her hand and made it glow with her which-craft. Pink light illuminated everything and she continued walking.
In her other hand, she still clutched the rose he had given her. She sighed and looked down at the rose in her pale hands. It reminded her of him. She wondered if he was still watching her from a rooftop or something; but when she looked up all she saw were the stars.
Suddenly she heard footsteps and for a moment she became happy to think that is was him coming for her. But then she realized these footsteps were too heavy to be his.
Thinking quickly she snuffed her light and hid behind a dumpster. She peered around the side of it, her cat-like eyes darting back and for
