She taught him how to skip rocks across the pond when they were 5. She gently grabbed his hand and showed him how to flick his wrist to make the pebble just skim the surface repeatedly. He claims that was the day she skimmed his heart and started fidgeting her way inside it.
He taught her how to speak pig latin when they were 8. She never understood it and he never understood her and they both thought the whole thing was pointless, but she wanted to fit in. He told her he liked how she stood out and the fact she wasn't generic and that she didn't need to try and impress anyone. She was only trying to impress him and she already had but she didn't know that. They created their own language that everyone else would want to learn but they wouldn't let them and they called it complete because their words together were all they needed.

Is unknowingly being -
Whether isolated or around others
Your heart's beating -
Surrounded, yet the feeling of being alone.
In a world where no one cares
where we are backstabbing one another;
talking against each other.

Neville's LetterIt's a beautiful day in London. With the sun shining, children playing in the park, and the air filled with wonderful sounds and scents, no one can resist a smile! Unless, of course, today you are Neville Longbottom, all thoughts of happiness replaced with worry and fear. Some wizards and witches stop and stare confusingly at the 11 year-old boy standing on the front lawn of 86 Hedowlark Road, with his arms outstretched to the sky, as if expecting a gift from the Lord. Neville ignored them all, his eyes fixed expectantly at the summer sky.Neville's Letter4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Real Magic, not the card tricks, disappearing elephants or levitations, but Real Magic is both the easiest and the hardest thing one will ever do.
You can read all the books and learn Scott Cunningham and Silver RavenWolf by heart. You can buy the candles and make the wand. You can learn your Quarters and memorize the tarot. You can gather the crystals and build your altar. You can dress in your robes with your shiny pentacle and cast your circle. And just when you think you have learned it you discover something. You still don't know it.
What happened? You followed all the rules. You spoke the right words and used the proper color candle. You spent hours and days figuring out the right moon phase and perfect Deities to call. The props are there, the stage is set, and the dialogue is spoken to perfection. So how did it all go wrong?

The Mirror When I hear the turn of the door knob, I know it must be Sophie because her dad and mom are already home. It's wonderful to see her again, she's the one that I can actually connect with, and I like her. Anyway, I'm also very anxious of being used; at least I'll be useful to someone. Right after, I hear a loud bang as she slams the door behind her. I could hear her soft weeping, and even though I can't see her yet, and shouldn't really be able to hear her, I can still connect and understand her sadden mood. The only thing that I see is the sink and the door. She quickly passes her parents and ushers straight towards methe mirror.The Mirror3 years ago in Drama More Like This

From Deep WithinThe long distance is so painfulFrom Deep Within7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Everyday that endlessly goes by,
I want to see you more and more
I wish I had wings, so to you I could fly .
Ever since I met you
Ive felt something so special
From the first moment I read your writing
To the time we became friends,
You are a beloved jewel I cherish,
In my lifes darkest ocean .
What are these feelings that I have?
Am I not attracted to males?
The truth I, yes I am----
However there is yet another truth,
Im attracted to your personality.
And your beautiful imagination .
You and I have shared so much
Spilled our hearts to each other,
And understand each other
I feel as though I owe my heart to you
No matter what guy I find out there,
A piece of my heart will always be yours .
You are one of the only ones,
Whom I can share my passions with.
Without the fear of being hurt,
We celebrate what we hold dear together
Regardless of how mature or immature we are .
I feel we are soul mates----or soul siblin
The Chameleon and the LeechDo you even remember which colors belong to you?The Chameleon and the Leech2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They shift, change, and undulate with unsettling constancy.
To the point where you've become a walking piece of meaningless, abstract art.
A regurgitation of everything you've ever seen..
Onto a canvas that isn't even your own.
You'll go so far as to lie.
To say you created a specific shade with your own hands.
When in reality it was stolen, without remorse, from someone else.
From someone who put years of heart, soul, and careful thought into blending it.
From someone who held it up to the light hundreds of times..
Smiling a little as it came closer and closer to the vision encased within their mind.
A vision you can emulate all you want..
You will never comprehend it.
You are the Chameleon.
Changing rapidly according to what ever surrounds you.
Eventually becoming so unlike yourself..
People can't even recognize the original shades you copied.
They begin to believe they came from you originally.
And you let them.

You dont have to yell
Blue ruffles trimmed in pink lace and eyes like dark chocolate chips
Doll houses for make-believe and books of Once upon a times
I can hear you
Rainbow colored crayons and silly giggled rhymes
Smothered in sweet kisses and tight loving hugs
Your hurting me
Soft whimpering cries when teased with harmless little bugs
But for this child, those are just wastebasket dreams
All just a fairytale for her it seems
Knotted dark locks and lips cracked and dry
A tattered Mickey Mouse shirt and eyes that always cry
Thread worn bear clenched beneath a small arm
No! please not in there
Rip paged books hidden from further harm
Covered in bruises of black and blue
Let me out!
Ignored screams and hiccupping cries are nothing new
A thread worn bear clenched with cold little arms behind a locked door
The Passion Within MeAs the lengthening days passThe Passion Within Me7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I stare out of the window
On the wind I can feel your presence
I smile while smelling the air.
I find my heart reaching over the distance,
Beyond the sea of turmoil and agony
Past the distance that seperates us,
I yearn to be there, in the longing dream....
As I sit and meditate to myself
I begin to realize this amazing feling,
The sensation of affection
Rash as it may seem----it seems so real
As an empath, I know emotion
Never have I felt so peaceful yet powerful
Only with your face in my mind....
Oh, how you are the dream...
Of that mystic walk in the forest,
The endless warmth of you in my arms,
The ability to be confident together around others,
The faith in looking toward love instead of lust,
The love to let you cry on my shoulder,
And the comfort of running my hands through your hair...
The dream can come true,
And only you have the power----
To make that a beautiful reality....
You are the mirror of myself
Never have I found this similarity

To forgive me
For I have forsaken others,
Dragged them to enslavement;
My soul, once golden
Now belongs to the one
who lies beneath:
The master of curses witchery

It has no heart,
Its blood runs black and filthy
As is my past
As are my clothes
As I was -
Enveloped in vengeance and despair
Before the thick fog
called my name, dear God.

Who thought they could use all their magic to thwart me
But I, being Death, being sly blocked their path
And said "Brave, cunning brothers oh what do you ask
I will give each a prize and then let brothers pass."
The first brother begged "Please, Death, make me a tool;
A wand that will win every fight, every duel."
So I broke a branch off of an elder tree
And I fashioned a wand for he thought he was worthy
And gave elder wand to the eldest of three.
Go, brother, I bid thee goodnight
I promise you'll win all your battles and fights
But your wand will be stolen and you will be slain
Then you and I will meet again.
The next brother cried "Give me magic instead,
The power to bring others back from the dead."
And I told him the pebble had magic inside
It would bring back the dead and his departed bride.
Go, brother I bid thee goodnight
You'll see your love soon but things will not be right
You'll drive yourself crazy 'cause she won't be whole

From disease, corruption, fear and lies
We'll turn and be on our way
The future looks bleak and hazy, I know
But we'll find the door someday
But just where we shall run off to
I haven't a faintest clue
To Paris, Egypt, Russia, or France
I don't care as long as it's with you
So it's quite a shame that I won't be.

From the trees Caws echo and sound,
Enveloping Travelers all around.
Black Feathers and Beaks,
Calling out from their Peaks
Like the subtle warning signs,
You find between the lines.
But few unknowing have not heard,
Any warning signs from each sly little Bird.
So victim they fell to the silent Theft,
Losing any Gems that they might have left.
The victims made their stories well known,
and warned the people, "Don't go there alone."
Though one day a wanderer happened a near,
Straight-faced, lacking any sign of fear.
Quite normal she seemed,
Or so the Birds deemed,
Until one ventured to pluck a hair off her head,
And moments later landed on the ground dead,
With an arrow straight through it's chest.
Causing sharp cries of detest,
From the crowd that was still flocked.
Fearful, so louder they squawked,
Their own threats of Attack,
But none would dare strike back.
For the body lied bleeding,
Cursed them with fear, so impeding.
The sharpest birds knew they should grieve,
And were careful fr

No matter what I find

So I walk away from it all

Past or present I am steel
No need to ever feel
Locked up and kept apart
No one will ever reach my heart
So you will remain safe
Just have a little faith

Angry friends, angry family---it is all the same
No chance of a beautiful love life out there
Petty attempts at being heard are ignored,
I only am a reflection of what people want...
There is always something more important
People who are always a priority
Love seems to triumph everything
Desire casts its umbra upon the world,
And there I am, standing in it's pale shadow...
My skin is absolutely cold and lifeless
The inner light of my soul has diminished
What love I could feel has finally seeped away
Satisfying the world seems nearly impossible
Being a dim memory is all that is left of me...
Whispering trees are my only company now
The sun sets on my dreams as I know them
The moon rises and casts its eerie glow upon me
Reminding me of the companionship I don't have
Hope always seems to wax and wane...
Courage diminishes as quickly as my passions
Leaving me undoubtedly lifeless and soul-less
Faith does nothing but deceive and corrupt
Nothing Can Reach YouNothing Can Reach You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The snowflakes whirling frantically on the other side of this glass somehow remind me of you.
Of the cold, desolate state your heart is now in.
Of the way nothing can reach you.
Because even if the sun were to show itself; cast a blinding ray of light across the ground..
The soil would still be too cold to melt the ice.
Loving you is like loving a ghost.
Something vaporous and distant.
Transparent; only felt as a slow, careful shiver up the spine.
Foolishness allowed me to believe I once touched you.
But now, I believe you were always dead.
And the warmth I felt back then was something I created on my own.
Every time I think of you, the sensation is like watching a balloon drift further and further away.
Until it is nothing more than a speck.
Microscopic against the expanse of blue..
And as it goes, my heart clenches, as a fist would.
Because here I am, standing firmly on frozen ground.
Reaching still for a thought, an emotion, a memory..
That is more lost to me now than

Dear deviantART Community,
Expressing thanks to you all seems so little, though words are all I have to offer. People from all around the world, that I've met through this community and become friends with, have offered so much more than tips, tricks, and information about art and photography.
