To Love a PoetI loved her with words.To Love a Poet9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was oft, and in many ways
That I loved her
Yet she sought me as a sailor does stars
And just as often;
Her room, dark, tempted by
A sliver of moonlight
Is misty by her sighs.
Does she not recognize
The deliberate action of my words?
O, the heavens would have me harshly judged
For the Sundays spent searching
For the hundredth, milestone letter.
That I am a poet, she must loathe
Though I am thankful that her
Loathing loves me still.
I cannot deny
That I am a poet,
And I love her with words.
It was oft, and in many ways
That I lost sleep, writing under a shade of cloud,
Wandered the streets for inspiration,
A glimpse of poetry,
That I loved her.

The Ocean's Black Heart
Not long ago, I thought it would never end. Every inch of Her engrained itself in my memory to keep as perfect as it had always been. Not long ago...
It ended. And I was left with my memories and my dreams... and a ring. A ring I'd given Her for saying "Yes" to the question that terrified me to ask. For saying yes to spending the rest of our lives together... before She decided to leave.
The ring itself was a simple thing, and not expensive as both She and I had been broke.... and honestly, She would not have been able to wear it because of her parents. So instead I had hunted and found a very cheap, but adequately wonderful ring. A sterling silver band with small stones in it that caught the light and reflected it, centered around a small black heart that protruded from the surface. It was beautiful, it was elegant, and it suited Her tastes and self perfectly.
Blood SongYour heart is taking its partBlood Song8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In a love scene where someone dies
No one cries
on the outside
Instead build a wall
A brace for which to fall
I worry so much for something
Something I cannot feel today
For I am merely
Steel and rust
In a gilded case
No, I cannot taste…
I know the future
This thread has twisted for too long
And your head has waded through a song
Filled with tasteless dreams of burns
You won't get over this quickly
Something slightly terrible
Is melting into your head
He held you
Your head hurts so much
And you still like his touch
He's not showing any signs now
Of letting you still breathe as one
You just ripped
Off an arm
And a leg, but still include him
Everything you say hurts them
It's not his fault; it's not his fault
A scratched, silk record moves
In a space
Devoid of everything but concern
And now, today, what have you learned?
He's been nice to you, and given love
And love is just what you wish
A bubble in your blood that spin

Reasons for GaaNaru
The first thing I would like to point out is that this is in no way a fan fiction, although it is placed in that category. This is a list of reasons that I have found in the Naruto manga/anamie that I believe Sabaku no Gaara and Uzumaki Naruto make a great couple. I will not argue over proof that either is gay or which one is seme and which is uke. Those are almost impossible to tell under normal circumstances unless you have either been told by or "accidentally" walked in on the couple in question, these types of things are NOT normally obvious in real life, so why should they be in stories? So if you're going to say things like "THEY AREN'T GAY D8!!!111!!0NE" Leave. Just leave.
The first reason is that they are extremely similar, but different enough to keep their relationship interesting. The most obvious link is that they are both Jinchuuriki. Having similar childhood gives them a solid base for their relationship. Of course, that's not the only commo

I, (Insert Name), pledge to do all that I can
Within the best of my ability to aid
My fellow brothers and sisters of the human race
Who have suffered burdens

I will strive to eradicate fear

of love & peace
One soul at a time

I promise to help them rise,
To aid their wars with courage & faith
To make this place a better world
If not for us, then for the generations

to fight the war that has developed
through the decadence of society
Saving one life at a time
With all that I am & ever will be.

In love with one,
Caught up with another,
You don't even return these feelings
It takes some humility,
To say I love you,
And mean, I love you
For everything you were and are.
More complex still to say those words,
And know that you don't feel the same.
I wanted to kill her,
For not making you happy,
All I ever wanted was that.
How callous to pretend that I hate you,
Because hating just means I love you more
But how can I be so caught up with you,
When you don't even care anymore.
I care for you and all that you are,
But can't say a word,
You won't understand.
But you are the one that was so understanding,
So helpful, when I was lost in myself.
And finally I have learned to react,
Interact with the people that seem to surround
And my own self-confidence is higher than ever,
Unless it's these thoughts
Bringing me down.
How can I fix this?
I know I never will,
And it does something horrible inside.
Some kind of rendering,

The conch's twist holds
an old world. Just beyond the glossy rim
where the shell curves out of sight
a half-full bottle plunges
into the sea. The green glass
has no end, its sides spreading
light like a coloured lens. But this ocean
is a dark edge, as if eyes had never lifted
its hard dermis. A wave curls
and becomes icecream in a turqouise bowl. You
are here, looking through spirals at someone else
who is you. The bowl empties
and a cold signifier stings the skull.
This time it is no echo
of the sea's thousandfoot rush, or the tang
of stale salt inhaled from a pinkwhite lip. This time
you are there. The icecream is just as cold, the glass
of beer bottles still shedding jade. But this could be
any beach. And now it matters
that you cannot swim.

A snort, a puff, a full-on snore.

Until you start to search
You drape across my chest.
We talk of unimportant things

There is a place
In a tiny room
In a special house
Surrounded by magic
Some golf balls
And a pond
A mini Mozart
The boxed and ignored
Of years long past
Faded yellow flowers
Peel from the wall
And droop to kiss the old
On which one becomes quite lazy
Beside old papers
Dreams in a chunky pillow
Feet sticking out
Of that considerate hole
In the blue blanket bottom
Waking up to
That are never
And little brown
Fingers tripping over
The little brown keys
And giving special love
To the two keys
That fell asleep mid-song
Like the little Mozart
Her head on the keys
Drifting a taper to her

That place you hate.
The place you never want to leave.
I could stay in bed all day.
Where I'd be safe
Hidden from world
I don't want to see.
A world of doubt and uncertainty
A world rife with hypocracy and judgement
And those hands.
Pulling you down
That's where I belong.

Just because you exchanged me for that flirt.
It's so selfish of you to kiss me goodbye
When I thought that time, you'd be mine.
You're so insensitive! Not seeing the pain I'm feeling
You're blind! Can't you see what's happening?
I love you, and it's hurting me inside
Because I know when you left, my dreams died.
When you're together, i just turn away not to see,
The happiness I wished was given to me.
Then I ask myself again,
Why did you go and leave my heart broken?
I don't know if it's still right to love you,
But until I die, my heart will coninue...
I know it would be nonsense for me to do so,
But, without your love i would be alone and in sorrow.
I'm not asking you to come back to me,
Because i just want you to be happy,
Yet, if you're not happy with me,
There's no use in fighting for what this love could be.

The bruises, they fade,
But the pain is the same.
Why do you do this Mommy?
Why do you keep me so afraid?
This is my life, living in
A war i call home.
It's all getting far to much,
And i feel so alone.
Mommy, what do you see,
When you look at my face?
You tell me your doing this,
To put me in my place.
Please, please stop Mommy,
I can't take it anymore!
Once again, i see some stars,
As i fall to the floor.
One of these days, Mommy,
You will got to far.
The everyone will see,
Just how cruel, you truly are!
But your still my Mommy,
And i love you with all my heart.
I hope some day, you'll love me back,
Instead of tearing me apart.
