The stars are out, the
moon is as bright as your eyes,
but I'm lost in them,
instead of the night.
You captivate me, darling
and all I want is
to kiss your lips, and
shout to the world that I love
you, and only you.
You tell me we can't
can't do this, not tonight, dear
too risky, too late,
too dangerous, but
baby, I don't care tonight.
Because, I want the
world to know that you
are mine, and I am all yours.
I want the world to
know that I love you
with all my heart, mind and soul
no matter what they
say about our lives.
They cannot break us, and I
refuse to let them.

and all you can say is you'll be delighted to ride me anytime.
you don't know
how i peel good dreams off my eyelids and press them in sticker books
for the days when every waking second is a nightmare,
or that the butterflies you gave me when we met
have laid eggs in my stomach lining and their larvae are eating me alive.
you want to take me to cheap hotels, well, i want to take you swimming in a river of headlights.
you wear my heart on your sleeve like a trophy; i hope a stranger will steal it and pin it to their chest instead.
these days, i am a star of tragic poetry and i run a hospital for injured happy endings.

I can show you a world unlike any other,
We're young and restless but we can getaway together.
A better place waits for us on the other side,
Where the grass is greener and everything can be left behind.
We'll throw our lives away just so we won't be apart,
There's no turning back because you have stolen my heart.
We'll runaway from this disaster that they call a city,
To a place where we always imagined to be so pretty.
With your smile you can light up wherever we go,
I'll take you to a place that we will only know.
We can make this great escape if you just let me take you there,
So hold my hand, we'll be young forever without another care.
After tonight we'll finally be free,
There's no looking back, it's just going to be you and me.

maps don't give destinationsI stopped knowing how to respond to your twisted approach with pretty words when they made me listen with two ears, two lungs and a heart. It became habit to lose every sense except how to feel when I was near you. My fingers would form four legged spiders and reach across every expanse of your body. At times I would hold my hands up and you would hold yours. Without making skin converse with skin we still could feel every heartbeat, every breath, every future.maps don't give destinations5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My sister called us lovers in a dangerous time like that song we could never remember the name of. You said no, we're nothing like that. You said we're the cracks in the foundation, the stains in the carpet. We're all the things that will never go away, never fade. We're the connection no one expects, but the one that's impossible to create gaps in. When we are ten feet apart with a crowd setting the barrier,somehow it feels like we're holding hands with red ribbons attached to our wrists.
When we're lying under thin blanket

I am quiet, I am nothing.
I am a book that nobody has read.
I am an eclipsed sun and a cloaked moon.
I am irrelevant and unwanted, a broken toy in an attic.
I am the dust in your rear-view mirror that you leave behind.
I am the air that you breathe in and spit out as something different.
I am the palest white. I am the darkest black. I am the dullest, emptiest grey.
I am the old man with forgotten memories and the baby who has yet to make them.
I am a forgotten word, dangling on the tip of your tongue, hanging on the noose of your lips.
I am a dried up stream. I am a felled forest. I am an abandoned cornucopia of resolute nothingness.
And there is Hell burning in my eyes.

You tell me be proud and have no fear.
You say be strong and believe in hope.
You say if we work together we can cope.
You tell me if I stay close and near,
that I'll have nothing to fear.
So I stay by your side and I never let you go.
You tell me if we hide and stay down low.
We might just make it there alive.
If we crawl and silently dive,
we won't get caught by the evil guards.
You say don't give up even though it's hard.
You tell me stay to with you and take a deep breath.
If we run we can make it before death.
You say don't be scared of the next part.
You say believe in myself and to listen to my heart.
You say don't ever look back just look ahead.
If we take it easy we won't arrive dead.
So I cling on and run forward in the dark.
I try to be silent and you light the spark.
I try to stay close and not to get lost.
I run ahead in the snow and the frost.
You hold me tight and keep me warm.
The cold long nights and the long frightening storms.

Which skies and oceans brought...
He bowed in grief, in fear, in mourn,
Like one that had cushions in his throat
As the body lay afloat
Swatting in reveries & the smell of oaks
"My love, my joy, one of weary heart,
With sad eyes and humble poise,
Your face I see, as I sang mi' best."
Few sorrow did he had, but one of most doleful air
One which told adoration, of a virgin bride
Spoke of beauty, rage & love
"Calm my fear, milady, as I disappear,
One, I'll feel not just see
The swelling of her heart, as I leave "

Explosion in Shin Akiba
by Amita Quita
SHIN AKIBA, ZAKERA WARD- An explosion followed by a foot chase that culminated in a brief hostage standoff rocked the peace of the Shin Akiba business district. The explosion of as of yet unknown origin destroyed a small apartment above the Wonders of Sol music store. Witnesses saw what they described as a middle aged human escape the blast and was chased on foot by C-Sec officers. The chase ended in a brief armed standoff near one of the district's many shuttle terminals. The standoff ended with the swift intervention of an unnamed Alliance officer and a human biotic. C-Sec then secured the scene and transported the suspect to the local C-Sec precinct for booking.
Sources close to the investigation told ANN that the suspect is connected to the attempt on Commander Thompson-Ramos a week ago in the Presidium. Doctors report tha

Everything just seems dark,
That's how I felt,
Every part of me trembled,
I really saw no salvation,
Not a single shine of light,
But then you came,
At first I was scared,
I didn't want to fall deeper,
But you dragged me up,
You helped me stay strong,
I am only as strong as you make me,
So I will fight so I can be stronger,
So that I can be my best,
So that I can be what you truly deserve,

Before the world corrupted me,
Having to wonder who I am,
If my smile is my own,
When I could shed tears,
Before my heart grew calluses,
But it may be better,
My smile is wide,
I don't care who is the one smiling,
I am so happy,
My wounds will heal,
My tears one day flow,

I want to see you smile,
I want to hear your laugh,
I would tear down the sky to help you,
And bring down the moon to make you happy,
Strength isn't measured in how much you can lift,
But what you have to protect,

when i was born my own personal carnage began
shocked into a reality i would never liken to
while others suck their putrid cigar air
swim poluted rivers, spawning in a gambling miasma
magnificent horses, their great bulk standing on fingernails
would run mile after single mile
at the end of their short lives
convelesce at the gates of a glue factory
or to be shot
or the lucky ones who were loved for more than a fat purse
would eat sweet grass in some peaceful field
i wish i was born one thousand years ago
to ride through the castle gate
dressed in velvet
scarlet as a setting sun
guarding my chastity
for the chosen one

The stars are gone,

Never smiled so wide,
Never laughed so hard,

Pandora can't stop me,
I am out of the box,
And I refuse to go back,
I have jump ship,

The deeper, darker things inside of me?
Of course you dont; you have no clue. I play
A game where all of that is hid away.
There is a certain thrill to all of this.
I am afraid that I just cant resist
To say: your kind and oh-so-helpful friend
Will stab you in the back before the end.
The funny thing about this game I play
Is that, when Im alone, all are away,
The game loses its charm and I become
The person that I hide from everyone.
Immersed in shadow; none to hold my hand.
Again I lie: Its nothing I cant stand.

walk in the sun
make the time
to take the time
that surrounds you
recapture your spark!
eat with your hands and
talk to strangers
from the proper angle
every face looks like
bears the makings
of a miracle
have a little faith!
throw caution to the wind
leap without looking
life would lack for love
without a little
find the future
full of feeling
at your fingertips
