I did it again.
I forgot to speak ( up )
The words stuck to the roof
of my stuttering mouth.
( When I was fifteen I stuttered severely
just like my father did when he was young.
They told me to slow down and breathe.
Eventually it worked and I am stutter free )
My hands stopped reaching.
I decided to reinforce the
wall around my heart instead
of letting you soften it.
I do not think I can be enough for you.
So I sit here next to you wondering
who you're texting today...
What boy will claim you?
It's only a matter of time.
I like how we are right now.
It could be better - so much more -
but that's okay.
I don't want to lose you so I am content
to be close, but oh so far away.
And when you find love I will break
and slowly mend like I've done so many
You see, I'm an expert at pining and letting go.
So many have slipped through my unworthy -
trembling fingertips I lost count.
I watch you from across the table -

The crowds are roaring, but I hear nothing. The only sound is the echoing beat of my heart thumping in my chest.
The final battle. It's finally here.
I have defeated the Pokemon Leagues of many regions, becoming the Champion in each.
It is time to begin. My opponent and I stand in the center of the arena. I look straight into his eyes as we shake hands.
I have defeated 32 Gym Leaders, and eight more Frontier Brains.
They are the eyes of my equal.
I have saved the world from numerous attempts at world domination, conquering many criminal organizations along the way.
I stand back, and so does he. I don't even look at my belt to see which Pokeball my hands rest on. I know each one by their place, their feel.
I have gained the powers of fire, ice and lightning from capturing the deities of each.
I send out my Pokemon, and he sends out his. Within moments we are given the signal to begin, and attacks of fire and lightning clash i

Meeting PinkieI remembered when I first arrived into townMeeting Pinkie3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Because You were the first one to say hi
Ever since that,I fell into a trance
You gave me something that I lost
Someone to call a friend
You brang my smile back to my face
Also,I heard something that I thought I would never hear again
Although you're quite a mystery
It's those crazy antics I become to adore
The way your tails does that twitchy twitch
The harmless pranks you pull in Ponyville
While still caring for everyponies feelings
And throwing parties for them to cheer them up
All the daily,strange,things you do
Gives me a light to chase out of my darkness
A radiant glow of acceptance
That fills me up with glee
All thanks to you
I'm honored to call you a friend

As I lay on the ground and look up at the stars,
crickets are chirping their songs from afar.
From my home on the hill the view is sublime,
such heavenly scenes inspire many a rhyme.
As I gaze I soon wonder what life's all about,
hatred and wars sometimes cause me to doubt.
Yet surely this cosmic dance high 'bove my head,
was created by someone whose heart for me bled.
This I am sure of and yes, this I believe,
that the "Someone" who made us wants us to be free.
Free from the pain and the sorrow and guilt,
free to seek peace on this planet He's built.
For now such things, too wonderful for me,
have made my head sleepy, it's time for my tea.
Time to get moving as the dawn has approached,
I'll ponder yet later this quandary I've broached.

Tu amor tiene muchos rostros, se manifiesta en pequeñas y grandes acciones, en relaciones duraderas y fugaces.
Hoy no sé de promesas rotas, ni de palabras olvidadas, sólo sé que extraño más que nunca la ternura de tu mirada.
Una de las formas de amor que más preguntas despierta es la del amor de pareja. Lo sentimos, pero a veces dudamos si es o no "verdadero", ¿es sólo deseo, atracción, compasión, necesidad de llenar un vacío, miedo a la soledad?
Y es que extraño tu vida, tus ojos. Extraño tu vos, tus manos.
Creo que tu amor no tiene mucho que ver con la estabilidad. Incluso después de los primeros encuentros, se llega a una etapa menos apasionada, pero nunca a un letargo.
Te extraño por el simple hecho de que al irte de aquí te llevaste contigo la mitad de mi corazón.
El amor nos sacude, nos liga a otra persona en una historia donde la racionali

I read those two words aloud
Imagining your voice
Your lips whispering
Them gently into my ear
And then I'd smile
And say "Good Morning" too
As I'd let myself remember
Just how much i loved you
But now I look down
And all I see are two measly words
Sent from your fingers
Instead of your lips.
And while I tell myself
Those two words are enough
That your love and mine
Can traverse a hundred miles
A thousand miles
And still appear just as strong
Just as pure
And I worry, I fear
That my love may not
Be enough to keep you happy
And that one day
Just the memory of you
Won't be enough
To keep my tears away.
And every time I think that
Every time I let my worries attack
I feel my heart begin to break
Because in my heart
You're becoming someone
I can't live without
Even though I already am
And while it might be
The best way to save my heart
I don't want to say "Goodbye"
So I'll just say "Good Morning"
And wait for your reply.

But you never understood me.
So, I put my feelings on a shelf,
Hoping someday I'd be set free.
People come and people go
That is what I've learned.
But I got too close to raging fires
No wonder I got burnt.
You were the only one I ever trusted;
Secrets flew away.
I gave you everything you ever wanted
Every single day.
I should have known that this would happen,
It would all come to an end.
I guess I'm the fool for trusting you;
So much for being friends.

Without sorrow and tears
I dream of a world
One without my fears
I dream of a world
Where justice rules my fate
I dream of a world
Without anger and hate
I dream of a world
Of flowers and trees
I dream of a world
Of roses and peace
I dream of a world
Where happiness thrives
I dream of a world
Where the good one survives
I dream of a world that will never exist
And I live in a world that is ruled by the fist
I dream of a world, tender, full of love
But I live in a world where hatred stands above
I dream of a world
But it is merely a dream
The world that exists
Is not worth of my esteem
In the end we all die
In this miserable place
In a careless numb society
Of dishonor and disgrace
The world I want
The life I want
Is covered by scars of strife
But in the end
What matters is
The way you lived your life

The wild fae will set their sights,
upon the lives of mortal men,
and strife and death will follow them.
In such a night, there was a girl,
who boldly stepped out of her door.
To Titania's throne she would find her way,
else lost her love would stay, would stay.
So out she stepped into the fray,
This girl who was a shade of fae.
Set she her brow in stone that night,
Her feet were clothed in furies flight.
She sang a song of dulcet peace,
Around her fae's cavortment ceased.
Her life they knew was to be spared,
The queen would claim her as an heir.
The power of this half-blood girl,
was such that men oft stopped and stared.
Her bloodstained feet were trekking on
The moonlight twining with her song.
Late that night she met the queen,
A menage of crystal skin and teeth.
oaths and promises were demanded,
Met with hatred, death, and madness.
The broken wings of the halfblood girl,
hung from her back, limp, unfurled.
Her breath barely stirred her chest,

Se dice que al cabo de dos o tres años de relación, la pasión o el enamoramiento se terminan y en su lugar quedan el cariño, la ternura.
Contigo recibí mi primer beso… Y fue algo maravilloso…
Pero no hay nada escrito, el amor toma rutas desconocidas.
Fue tan hermoso como ver tu rostro…
Nadie puede decir que es amo y señor de tus sentimientos.
Eres la única chica a la que he amado.
Desconocidos incluso para nosotros mismos
Porque eres lo mejor que me ha pasado, un pasado que me impide creer en mí mismo y en el otro.
Porque sin ti no le encuentro sentido a mi vida.
Para amarte, verdaderamente hay que creer en el amor como en un milagro, y es que sin ti no encuentro el camino que me guía.
Ser paciente, dejarse sorprender por lo desconocido.
No queda nada en mi destino… y sólo me encierro en mi delirio.
Amarte es desearte enteramente.

If it helps me to survive
Show off those masks
Take them down
I will be proud of my life
Living in the perfect lie
Proud for being fake
Lie to you as much as you can take
Forgive me please
I can't resist
I want to lie
I want to cheat
Then laugh into your face
You're fool, you're just an idiot
You're thought that I've forgot?
Those hurtful things you've done to me
Those painful bruises on my skin
Millions of tears from my eyes
Consequences of your stupid lies
All those nights I was crying
All those days, pretending of smiling
It's not a living, just days of poor existence
All happiness that I've been missing
Miserable and destroyed
Played and fooled like a toy
My lord, if I deserved it all
Then take away from me this love
Let me suffer to the end
But don't leave me, take my hand
Punish me for things he wants to make
I want to see how much I still can take
See what else can make me break
As long as I'm betrayed
As long as I am fake

No one to call
Nothing at all
But I found you there
In my life yesterday
Suddenly it all became clearer than before
Your radiance shining darkness evermore
Everything into place it did fall
And happiness hit me like I hit a wall
I could never miss a beat as long as you are near me
Never stop breathing while I am waiting
Never run away no matter how I try
I could never walk away and say I didn't love you
Never turn away from the ones who really need me
The only beautiful thing that I need to save me is you
I could never look down and say I'm not afraid to
Jump feel my body crack against the pavement
I will never look back and it's all because of you

My eyes on the ground
Dragging my cold feet
I wander with no destiny
Consumed by all my fears
And by all my regrets
Taking the darkest alleys

From these streetlights
Trying to stay alive
But secretly wishing for death

They were strong,
Then the golden halo of flame wrapped itself around me,
enveloping my body,
and crushing my soul.
After it destroyed me,
the searing fire touched my wings,
and turn them into ash..
I have lungs.
Supplying me with oxygen,
and dispelling the carbon dioxide.
As every set of good lungs do.
Then you pushed me into the cold waters,
tendrils of freezing water cutting into my skin,
and killing those lungs.
I sucked it all in,
the water destroying my organs,
bursting everything within me,
and causing a panic that didn't help me at all.
You set me ablaze,
and then you suffocated me.
You destroyed my wings,
and ruined my lungs.
The two main factors in my life,
and the only ones that I was hoping to hold onto forever.
But you know what they say..No.
I don't care what they say,
your memory shall always live on within me,
and so with that,
I will never let you go,
and I hope you won't let me go..

You and Alfred thought it would be a good idea to have a horrific scary movie marathon on Halloween. You grabbed only the best scary movies you knew. The Ring, the Paranormal Activities Series, Freddy Versus Jason, Nightmare on Elm Street, Chucky, and a dozen or so others – even some not so scary ones from the beginning of the horror genre that the two of you could laugh at. Alfred could watch the old ones because they were filmed so horribly that Alfred wasn't scared of them.
It didn't help that it was pouring outside. Lightning flashed outside. The two of you screamed when the power went out. Alfred's arms were wrapped around you tightly as he practically squeezed the life out of you. You gripped him back just as firmly, tensing and squirming as you screamed just as loudly as he did. It was terrifying because the movie had the cast screaming in terror. It was only irony that the two of you were screaming at the same moment the cast did.
