Falling through nightSmall whispers of me are flowing in reflected shards of glassFalling through night6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
as i fall through darkened nights and city-strewn buildings.
Nothing seems real right now, but everything feels right
my memories are clearly thrown against the wind i'm sailing through.
White gas sprays my fingers as cold mist crystallizes with the ice in my heart
a sense of freedom rushes past me while the chorus of skyscrapers beats to a fast rhythm.
Freezing blue softly pierces the city lights below
the sounds of dead life fail to reach me.
Heart beating, the world stops its symphony for a moment
everything stands still and i notice i'm not falling anymore.
The shards of glass allow me to glance at my broken reflection for one last time
and now i forget why i'm falling through this endless dream.

You only ever can see me
The side long glances complete with a wink and smile
Send my heart pounding
I miss your touch
The way you fingers held my hips
The way you're hands play with my hair
The way you're arms take me to a new world,
Where it is only you and me
I miss you're hugs
The way you pull me close
Where I can feel only you
Where I can only think of you
I miss your kisses
The way you would just give me a look as you lean in
The way you hold my head
The softness of your lips pressed against mine
And you still find a way to pull me close,
When I thought that there was no more room,
You are all that I can think about,
I can't wait until you come home
I miss you're love
I know you'll be back soon
Because you miss me too
But I need you
With out you Im missing part of me
I LOVE you,
And - I miss you.

I'm Putting Out Your StarI've spent so many hours looking at you. I know I shouldn't, but I'm drawn to you regardless. My eyes connect with your own magnetic and remarkable pair creating an impossible, but perfect match. Sometimes, when you looked my way, I pretended that you were the one watching me. Even though I know there was someone behind me I dare not look; to know who is capturing your gaze would be a torment I lack the courage to bare. I've taken out my heart and laid it undisguised on the floor, but I don't think you ever noticed it.I'm Putting Out Your Star6 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
From time to time I saw you embrace that other boy and I cannot help but wonder what it was about him. I watched as you hug, as you touched and talked in a flawless symphony that was rightfully mine to be in. Did he know how lucky he was to once be in your arms? To hear your soft voice being poured solely into his ear, whilst I had to strain to catch a whisper? Did he hurt as much as I when you were not around?
You were a fascination of mine; one that was impracticable t

about how the wind made them rise into their own story,
about the passing light of every day
when darkness spreads its wings around the world but is seen flying after a faint sunset.
I wanted to write poetry from memories
about what makes a faint glow of light shine when we can see the darkness,
about the past which never looked back at us
even letting us learn that we can live without our regrets.
I wanted to write poetry from amazement
about the emotions each word carries away into the hearts of many,
about the hardships people go through
and how they choose to grow into someone who can inspire.
I needed to write poetry from love
and through the same heart show that i can write about the truth,
and find a reason to keep talking cruelly
because i never wanted to hurt you.

I beg of you, Don't,
Leave me, Alone,
I Don't Need You,
Although, I think on it,
Foggy, Hazy, I am Fine,
I am Going to Kick the Habit,
My Will is Strong,
I can Walk Away,
I have Walked Away,
Step, by Painful Step,
And Still Further I go,
Your Words Piece Me,
Needle under the Skin,
I am Intoxicated,
By You, Your Charisma,
But I must Break Free,
You are no Good for Me,
You changed my Life,
Was it for the Better,
And Still, I wonder,
Just one more Taste,
Just, One, More,
Time, after time,
I let you back into my Life,
I try to get Clean,
And You, You Walk Straight, Back In,
You are the Drug in My Life,
You are the Trip, the Fall,
I can't take it, Anymore,
So one more Kiss, for Luck,
And now, to Face my Fears,
Battle my Demons,
In a Final Tustle for Acceptance,
I begin to Shake, without You.
I shan't look Back.

Quickly and without much thought
Dancing your fingers over my icy skin
Until my bones are brittle and my muscles taut.
Your words crash like cymbals in my ears
Harsh and cruel chaotic beats
Leaving me trembling, crying diamond tears
Yet our spinning record still plays on repeat.
You sing our melody's melancholy tune
Your gruff voice screaming in my face
And fists knocking like a monsoon
It's a deviant combination of drums and bass.
I don't walk away because when I see you
Coffee-stained teeth and glassy eyes
There's stupid excuses I construe
To forgive the bruises on my arms and thighs.

I saw the shadow of death floating above me.
I was told,
today would be my last day.
It was then,
I realized how much I need you.
What I would do to see your face,
the journey I would make.
I'd go the distance,
travel all day.
Walk until my very soul starts to bleed,
because when night falls,
you're the one,
I want in my arms.

The first year boy hesitated, "Um hello," he said nervously, "Can my friend and I join you, please?"
James eyed the boy. He had a warm-hearted look about him, he was extremely thin, slightly shorter than the normal first year height, he had blue-green eyes and scars covering most of his body from head to toe. He looked pale, as though recovering from a deathly illness.
James looked at Sirius, and Sirius looked back and they silently agreed that the boy seemed good enough for them, so they agreed to let him sit with them.
"Well!" said James smiling, "What are ya waitin' for? Come in!"

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 agonies and sorrows;
a picture painted clear.
Each one tells a story

compassionately, as to make you feel
what words could never say.
Watch them slowly falling.
Listen, with your eyes;
to the pictures, painted before you.
See them come alive.
So very colorfully dancing;

On and on,
you can't escape.

in one night
Drives me insane!
To open and greet
these ugly little faces
each, requesting the same.
A ghost, a goblin,
a fairy, a ghoul
a devil, with horns and a fork;
a little guy in baggy clothes
his face, half covered with cork...
Bag upon bag
loaded with goodies
they rush from door to door.
the October of the night
to be replaced by more...
vampires, skeletons, trolls...
Noise and more noise
they take their claims
bearing us, their devilish souls...
But looking into
their sweet little faces
do we not really enjoy it?
My fellow adults
as much as we think
by the name of all madness
we'd like to destroy it?
For Halloween comes
but once a year.
And were we not young once, too?
We went through it all
the whole spooky bit,
when jacko-lanterns eyes
seemed to move...
Behind the flicker of a flame
that was touched by the night
which secretly left us 'all' in doubt...
No! Not a night that we dread

I look through the window
on this cool summer night
caressed by a gently breeze.
I am missing you deeply inside
staring blankly, into space;
curtains blow softly
against my skin
tears of love, run down my face...
Staring, for the longest while
never realizing the passing time.
Trying to find the pieces
to make it right
the words, to make it rhyme...
For how can I ever tell him
let the deepest part of me show?
That I'm lost without his love...
How will he ever know?

Though I am sometimes more than reluctant to admit it, there are a lot of advantages to being a werewolf. Granted I was crouching bloody, bruised and sore, in the bushes of some random backyard because of what I was, but at least I was alive, and for that I was not complaining. There's nothing like a near-death experience to make you grateful for what you have, and right now I was glad the lycanthropy I'd been born with meant that I could withstand such a brutal beating from my so-called pack. Glad that the wounds all over my body would fade away without a trace, without even a scar to remind me that I had nearly died. Hours ago- though in my mind it felt like more than that- I had dragged my broken body away from my attackers with much help from the wolf who shared part of my soul. Like I said, there were a lot of advantages. Now here I was; as wholly intact as I could possibly be, about to risk my life again and attempt for the fourth time to break into some st

Each word you say, hurts me some more.
If you ever left my life, i'd be thrown over the edge.
Inside, I'm left with nothing but red.
Colors describe who I am.
Black, for being incredibly sad.
Blue, for not knowing who I am.
Brown, for being a bit confused.
Purple, for being a bit hated.
Pink, for that one time I found love.
Red, for the blood that's spilled about.
Orange, for trying to move on.
Yellow, for seeing the sunlight.
Grey, for that sunlight going away.
Green, for the money trying to purchase my happiness again.
The worst pain I've ever felt,
was when the monochrome grey came about.
Constant refueling who I am inside.
Making me torn to shreds.
This injustice that was caused to my heart.
My rainbow was taken away right from the start.

Keep me in your heart.
Remember my good intentions,

We were learning as we went.
I never wanted to hurt you,
although I repeatedly did.
I kept you at arms length,
not trusting enough to
be completely yours.
That's my fault...and
I'll have to live with that.
My deep seeded issues clouded
judgement and scattered our chances.
I still think of you fondly as
the stars give off their light.
I wonder where you are this night.
I wonder if you are truly happy.
Do I have the right to ask these
things of you?
Did I leave such a bitter
taste in your mouth?
Is there no good recollection?
Far away - so far away.

to feel your warm skin against mine,
to be in that safe place again.
That specific feeling is fading fast -

You appeared to me in a dream.
You exist only in my enigmatic imagination.
The moon was heavy that night,
drunk with the power of the sun.
Pulling and pushing the tides
like my vacillating moods.
I swim through this vast ocean
of unrest searching for
a place to call home.
I created your face
to give me comfort.
I carved out your being
to fit perfectly with mine.
Your hair danced like fire even
though the sea consumed you.
Sometimes my dreams are lucid -
most times I forget.
But you linger like an after image -
as a flash of a camera in
my watery eyes.
You stay with me on nights
of uncertainty - when all my
doubts bombard and petrify me.
I am rooted in place, too
frightened to move...on.
If you were real it would feel like a dream.
I would never wake.
Eternal slumber has a nice ring to it.
