i have memories of words that were never said.
each time i look in a mirror
i see you over my shoulder, studying the lines forming on my face.
i'm growing old, older than i should be;
middle-aged, but drowning in high school.
i think i used to know where i'm going,
but now my best guess is the grave;
i think i died when i met you,
but that's okay with me, i was dying anyway.

Feet that are confident and able walk fast.
Hopeful hands that have a firm but soft grasp
And an ass that can rebound after every task.
I wish I had a smile that is permanent.
I wish I had eyes that were not so observant.
I wish I had the mass to withstand any disturbance.
Sometimes I wish I could be a completely different person.

Love is Pain (Legolas Fic CH 2: The Hobbit DOS)Thranduil walked swiftly off the balcony and into the palace. One problem had been solved tonight, but now there was another, perhaps worse than the previous one. Legolas' attraction to Tauriel had undoubtedly been diverted, but only because she was in love with a dwarf, the most despicable of creatures. The head of the Elven Guard could not be in love with the elves' greatest enemy. It simply would not do. 'Perhaps I should kill this dwarf... Or Tauriel herself. I never liked her much anyways.' Thranduil thought. He shook his head angrily. His long life had never been easy, and it seemed like it would be getting harder in the days to come.Love is Pain (Legolas Fic CH 2: The Hobbit DOS)1 year ago in Romance More Like This

Unless you've been through what I've been in,
Don't you dare call me selfish,
Don't you dare make me feel ashamed.
You have no business with me.

I need help now.
I can't speak to them,
I get a little bit nervous but I will crumble in humility.
I can't go out,
It's too hard, I'm too shy for no apparent reason.
Just be here for me,
Direct me to a new door.
Free this sword in my back,
And wash me in your warm bath.
I just want to sleep sometimes,
I may never wake up again, like every night.
I dislike your reckoning.

I knew it was going to happen one day,
There was no avoiding it.
I just didn't know,
That day was here.
Every time you went there,
You came always came back.
I expected it to happen this time.
I was wrong.
How could it be?
You were just here,
And gone the next.
Too soon, too quick.
It's hard to believe,
It's hard to accept.
I never imagined this would happen,
Thought you'd be here longer.
You're not here?
Couldn't you stay a bit longer?
You were getting better,
About to leave the hospice,
I still see you,
In everything I do.
I forget you're gone,
When I waited for you for the longest time.
I was not prepared for this.
No matter how many times,
I told myself I wouldn't cry,
I still lost it.
No, strangely not when I saw you inside there.
But when I came up to the podium,
And read my eulogy,
I remembered every little thing and I knew that I would never get to have those again.

Like kissing the keys of a piano
So soft and full of melodies
Waiting to be played.
Let me love you in the night
When nobody sees my fears
When your mouth is sweet
When the moon is sun.
Spell my name slowly
And don't forget to smile when you say it.
Read my eyes when I love you
And find me out under the sky.
Make me forget the time.
Touch my soul through my face.
Hide in my arms.
Hide in my chest.
Kiss me softly
Again and again
Kiss me for last time
Hidden in my hands
Hidden in the night
When the light comes from us
When the life sleeps
When the love starts
When the pain can't sing.

and darkness catches you off-guard,
cold winds whisper through the trees
as fallen leaves scuttle across the yard.
Evening shadows take sinister form
in the dim Autumn gloaming,
as the undead rise from their graves
to begin their nightly roaming.
There's a Raven tapping at your window,
the Headless Horseman is at your door.
Cthulhu is hiding under your bed,
his tentacles stretched out across the floor.
Werewolves howl, mummies shuffle about,
ghosts moan and rattle their chains.
Vampires fly around biting necks,
and the zombies are searching for brains.
Unearthly creatures great and small
gather beneath a pumpkin moon,
listen closely, you'll hear them call
"Halloween is coming soon."

Pleading my vows of love eternal

Our wedding bed is covered

Stained only by the secrets

Sleep gently, my love

Filled with bastard dreams and naked women.
Home to rotting thoughts that died long ago,
And vile fantasies hidden away in black boxes.
My crooked spine supports a twisted attic,
Filled with sticky fluids born of hateful ecstasy.
Home to dismembered pornographic wraiths,
And paintings depicting visions of myopic pleasure.
My splintered spine supports a fetid attic,
Filled with anguishing screams and violent kisses.
Home to countless violations of porcelain skin,
And rusty knives meant for erasing the pain.
Love is Pain (Legolas Fic CH 5: Hobbit DOS) Thranduil relaxed in the late afternoon sunshine of his private courtyard, his eye lids becoming heavy and threatening to close. It was the first time in weeks that he had felt truly at peace. Legolas was locked up, where he couldn’t irritate him anymore, as was his friend, Tauriel. The dwarves were contained as well. In the short of it, all his enemies were in no position to hurt him. The sun was warm and it was making Thranduil feel languid. Suddenly, a servant burst into the courtyard, shattering the King’s precious moment of peace.Love is Pain (Legolas Fic CH 5: Hobbit DOS)11 months ago in Romance More Like This

“No, my lord. This is important!”

for deafening dullness
to slowly pass
through blurred reflection
of unpainted stains
for scattered perfection
which wreckedly remains
every deep sillage
of damning illusion
on each sharp edge
with meticulous caution
the numbing ache,
away from the cold, dark wake
with blind gaze shifted
the cynical view
without further debate
the best-laid cue,
never too late
a worthy fight
to what is right,
on with firm grip
to silverlined hope
that fate will flip
the heavy, cruel rope
