The heart and mind walk hand in hand...
Baring the human soul...
Though the temptation of this trinity,
is what bellowed once and throughout history!
A tree in a garden of sacred proportions & boundaries!
Though guarded by feather and wing,
tainted by scale and horn.
There lied the tongue of icy breath
& searing words...
Behind & below Holy vision...
And there upon the finding of the foul and fallen wretch,
Were humans ever forsaken...
Grace had yet to pry its way back into the light...
Until the prime year of our Lord...
The way, the word, the light was he,
Our Lord & Savior!
Filth have we ever been by our
trapped and sinning souls...
We were saved!
Finding Grace before Salvation,
should we accept the call
Of the Son of Man!
Yet still remain...these things we call trees...
Forever growing...only to die...
As they go on to the greater garden!
Yet here, where the roots lie beneath...
and closest to Hell...
Darkness is forever a curse to the deepest of roots,
HateI really hate the way she lies. She says she’ll listen, but she won’t. She promises she’ll be there, but she isn’t. She tells me it wasn’t her, but it was. I don’t hate her you know. I just hate everything she is, everything she does. Her smug smile. Her mud brown hair. Her green eyes with a drop of evil. The way she knows how to hurt me. The way she can make me cry. The way she likes it. She knows me too well. She knows how to hurt me. Knowledge is power and power corrupts. She’s the most corrupt person I know.Hate10 months ago in Emotional More Like This
But I can’t hate her; not entirely. After all, hating yourself isn’t healthy.
Dear Ex,My heart overflows with gratitude to you for the wonderful way that you've been treating me since our breakup. The past months have been truly enlightening, and the gifts that you have given to me have warmed my heart, strengthened my spirit, and broadened my mind.Dear Ex,9 months ago in Emotional More Like This
First, I must thank you for ignoring me, especially for passing me straight on the street, staring at your shoes as if you hadn't seen me there, even though I had been walking so close to you that our shoulders would have bumped each other, had there been only a foot's less distance between us. The time without you has forced me to reach within myself for the companionship and encouragement that I needed to press on. It has proved to me that you weren't as much as I had made you out to be, and enabled me to learn to carry on without you. You taught me a lot about putting others before myself, versus knowing when to put myself before others.
Secondly, I am grateful for your petty arguments, demanding my attention while

I looked at him. The coldness in his eyes had disappeared, replaced by infinite sadness. I placed my chair right next to his before opening my arms. He let himself fall softly against me and I closed my arms on him, hugging him tightly as his body started shaking. Tears soon started flowing and I sang in a gentle voice for him. I would wait until he was ready to talk.
It took fifteen minutes before he calmed down. When he stopped crying, he sat straight again, breathing deeply.
"Thanks for being here."
I smiled softly and patted his head.
"Hey, it's no problem, Kyu."
"I mean, thanks for not abandoning me. For understanding me. Not just for being in my studio with me."
"Still no problem, Kyu."

"I'm not THAT twisted!"
'You didn't grow up in a f*cked up world created by a selfish guy.'
I stayed silent. I couldn't say anything. I was selfish. I had created this horrible world. I had killed Wookie
No! I hadn't killed Wookie. Not yet! He was still alive! I closed my eyes. I closed my eyes, and I wished.

The little demon turned, only to receive a white little person with pure feathery wings and a giant super happy smile in his arms. Kyuhyun let a growl out and showed his tiny fangs to the angel who jumped on him. "I am not Kui Xian, I am Kyuhyun!" Zhou Mi tilted his head to the side, losing his smile and his eyes becoming big and round. "But you know I can't say it correctly." "You could at least try. Want me to transform your name into Joomhyuk or something?"
The little angel's eyes suddenly became all teary. "No " Kyuhyun sighed. It wasn't easy to be friends with the angel prince, Zhou Mi, while he was the demon prince. But at that time, peace reigned between the two nations, and there was no reason for him not to like Zhou Mi. Except the fact that he still couldn't say his name correctly despite the fact that they knew each other since they were born.
Their parents had signed a peace treaty before their birth, and they renew it every year to be sure the other na

I ate with him, his parents pretending they were not hungry for now. Surprisingly enough, the tuna salad was delicious. I didn't tell him about what I had found out. I didn't want him to think that I was so easy. Plus, I still mostly hated him.
I hate everything about you!
Why do I love you?
So ironic, how this song reflected exactly my feelings.
Cho Kyuhyun was arrogant, immature, popular and mean. I hated all of his sides and, to be honest, the fact that he had bought me expensive clothes the day before annoyed me a bit. I liked the clothes, but I felt uncomfortable about the fact that I couldn't pay him back.
I hated everything about him.
But then, why did I love him?
I knew this wasn't friendship. I would've kicked a friend trying to kiss me. But I had let this guy kiss me more than once. And, somehow, I knew I had felt his naked body against mine. But when? I couldn't remember.
After dinner, he insisted walking me home and I couldn't say no, so we both went to my house. I u

Two months and two weeks after Sungmin had left him, I decided to try and make Kyuhyun fall for me. This is why I asked him if he had anything to do the next day - we were on Friday. He looked surprised, but he said he was free. I nodded softly, satisfied, and asked him if he wanted to go to Old Montreal with me. He shrugged, saying he didn't mind.
When I went back to my apartment, I had to contain myself not to jump everywhere in happiness. But it was very obvious that something good had happened, and Sungmin-hyung raised a brow when he saw the huge smile on my face.
"Let me guess. You have a date with Kyu."
"How did you know?"

The next morning, I woke up when the phone rang. My mom was already gone to buy food for me for the week, so it's being half-asleep and very clumsy, my teddy bear in my arms, that I bumped my way through the house to the phone. I answered it with the hoarse voice of someone who just woke up.
"Ryeowook-sshi? It's me, Kyuhyun."
I could've guessed. I would've recognized this voice anywhere, though it was mainly because this voice had mocked me for five years.
"What do you want?" I sighed.
"That's rude! Did you sleep well?"
"I was sleeping very well until you called."
"Oh, sorry, sorry. Do you want to do anything today? It's so beautiful outside, I thought about going to Mont-Royal. But maybe you'd prefer going somewhere closer?"
"I, erm I don't know. I didn't really plan to do anything today. I just woke up because of the phone anyways."

"You should rest, Miina."
I laughed softly. "Not Miina. I'm so ugly, I'm enormous."
"No, you're my Miina."
He made me turn in his arms and kissed me softly. "Do you want a boy or a girl?"
"Any. But I can feel it. She's going to be a girl."
He raised a brow. "You can feel it? Female instinct?"
I punched his shoulder, smiling. "Man-who-became-a-woman-to-give-birth-to-a-baby instinct."
He didn't reply, but laughed and pulled me to the couch to force me to sit. "Miina, just rest, okay? I'll make coffee."

"Are the lights okay?"
"What about the sound?"
"Hey, there's one mic missing! We have to find it!"
I sighed, nervous, while everyone was running everywhere to find things to get ready for the play. I was not dressed as Juliet yet, since I would only appear at the very end of Romeo and Juliet.
I sighed again when I remembered that my parents would surely come back home before me, and then I would have to face them and tell them where I had been and everything. I never told them I had to stay after school tonight. I never had the chance to anyways. They were never home. Happily, my boyfriend could drive me home. If he hadn't had his license, I would've been forced to call my parents so they could bring me back home, which was something I didn't want to do.

We went there and I pouted when I saw there wasn't actually anything interesting. But we still had fun looking around and, after a while, we started both getting hungry. Kyu kissed me softly. "There are little restaurants here and there. Want anything?"
I tilted my head to the side. "Ice cream?"
He smiled. "Ice cream then. I'll treat you."
After getting ice cream, we sat to eat, talk and rest a little. I had caramel ice cream while Kyu had chocolate one. He finished his ice cream in no time and kept looking at mine for a while before I laughed softly. "Want to taste?"
He made a baby face. "May I?"
He purred, tasted and kissed me softly after he tasted. "Delicious ~ But your lips are tastier ~"

It was the fifth time in my long life as an angel that I had to go to where human beings lived and choose one of these creatures. Every hundred years, we angels had to do this to keep our powers. Why? I never really wondered why. I was an angel, just an angel, and I never questioned my Lord's rules. What I knew is that we had to choose one human and convince him or her to follow us to Heaven, leaving everything they knew about. And there were rules, of course. The person couldn't be someone too believing in our Lord, God - it would be too easy. The person also couldn't be someone wanting to commit suicide - that was too easy too. Basically, we had to find someone with a fulfilled life and convince that person to leave everything behind and follow us. Th

His head was against his arm, breathing slowly, only looking at his lover sleeping his long and endless nap, as he liked to think it was. Even if he didn't die when he was hit by the car, which was a lot of luck, he did fell into a coma and didn't wake once since that fatal day.

I nodded softly. I couldn't refuse it. Anyways, he looked so happy that his smile made me happy too. He kissed me on the cheek and whispered in my ear:

I blushed softly, happy that it was dark enough outside so he wouldn't see the color of my face. I took the teddy bear and the clothes he had bought me.

We were back to school. Finally. After the strike that kept going on forever, we had finally made it back to school. Meaning that I had also made it back to Montreal.
My parents had refused to make me stay alone in a studio, since I still wouldn't eat or drink on my own. The problem had been resolved with Heechul taking me with him in his multi-2, in Donghae's old room, and Ama having my old studio. With a roommate who knew me and kind of cared about me, I would have to eat, my parents thought. Well, they were wrong about this. Heechul would never force me to eat. He seemed kind of rude at times, but he understood my pain and he would never force me to eat if I didn't feel like it. The only times when he would make me eat were those times when I started to look like a zombie, or when I would suddenly collapse without any warning.
On the other hand, Valerie was someone I had to fear. Whenever she would visit Heechul, she would bring food her family had made and force
