John lay dumbfounded, trapped under the weight of Sherlock’s limp limbs, staring at Sherlock’s face still smooshed into the pillow next to him after having poked him several times to remind him the alarm had gone off and they wouldn’t have time for breakfast. The morning light was glowing on his white skin making this mad-devil look positively angelic in his peaceful slumber.
It had happened so gradually John hadn’t even realized. It began, really, that first night when he’d saved Sherlock’s life. At least that should have been a good foreshadowing of the eventual inevitable. But aside from that, it had been a million simple little things that just happen as you get used to living with someone. The times he’d grabbed Sherlock’s scarf by mistake. The times when one or the other of them had accidentally drank from each other’s

Not as I do
'Cause I'd hate to see cuts
All over you.
They check my wrists
And think that I'm fine.
If they checked my hips,
They'd see many a line.
It's my hobby,
That thing that I do
No matter what though,
I pray you never do.

Was when I thought of dying
And how good I am at lying
Each and every single day.
I've got a box of painkillers
They sleep right by my bed
For when all I see is red,
They'll numb it into darkest white.
I've tried talking to people,
But I can't word what I want to say
And maybe I like living this way,
Knowing that I'll die soon.
I know I'm self-destructive
My crosshatch skin screams it
But inside there's a little bit
That still aches to be saved.
I've tried before and I'll try again
To put my worthlessness away
But fate forced me to stay;
Death's a bitch like that.
Life makes me want to die
Yet it won't let me leave
Or grant me a reprieve
From that which it's made me hate;

Homophobic HomosexualMy brother is a homophobic homosexual.Homophobic Homosexual3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
I am pretty sure about it.
Just like my parents, gay men do not exist in his world; only faggots.
He insults them like they are the worst crime ever.
He feels disappointed and disgusted that marriage is the union between two persons, and not a union between man and woman.
He feels disgusted at gay couples.
Gay people sicken him.
He would rather be taken his eyes off with a fork and be burnt alive slowly than be kissed by a man.
He hates gays with all his might.
He is the biggest homophobe I have ever known.
But after telling a teacher the story of my brother's relationship with me, and he once told me something that made me realize a thousand things, and a huge truth.
'The most probable thing is that your brother is homosexual'.
I told my teacher he was wrong.
I know most of homophobes ended up being homosexual, but my brother's homophobia is so big that I doubted it.
But my teacher made me analyze everything.
His extremely girly manners.

It was as if I could hear every heartbeat in a three mile radius. A sparrow, frantic, a raccoon posed contently in a tree all pulsed through my veins. Carter's heart was like a drum on my fingertips. I had memorized his heartbeat by then; a slow, gracious hum. Amongst all the animal's beats and my own rhythm running away, there was something I had never heard before: the stranger. It was an art, I think, hearing heartbeats, because it opened that person up to you like a spring flower. But there was nothing, then, that I found beautiful about that nameless face's heart. It was mystery. It was stillness where I never wanted to find it.
Then there was light. Faint, very faint, just enough to illuminate a pair of watchful green eyes. It was like grass had fallen capture to her irises. When her lighter died out, I heard shuffling and then candle light filled the room. There wasn't a lot of light, but it was enough. I could see the outline of her.

That's the first time I drew her. Not all at once– I never could do that. It was too much of her all at once, too much for me to see, so I drew Ellie piece by piece. I took her apart like a puzzle, like a broken doll; the shape of her lips and stray curls against her neck; her wrists; the flesh of her stomach and the curve of her waist, the shadow of her breasts.
Sometimes I wonder that if I had drawn her all together, she would have stayed in one piece.
I once tried to form a full portrait of her. She was laid out of on floor, her body on dirty pages, and I tried to put her in order. But it overlapped. In the end, there were just too many fragments. The odd things is that I was missing a part
