"I feel like it too, honestly."
"I brought you some dya old coffee."
Mel looked at him and rolled her eyes. He was holding a steaming brand new cup.
"Kidding, Mel. Lighten up." He set it down and took the files from her view.
"I swear to God, if you don't get to sleep tonight, I'm gunna make you chug down more coffee."
"Is that a threat?" She yawned.
He pulled on a strand of her hair and browsed through the files.
She slumped down onto her arms and closed her eyes.
"Why did you stay up late last night?" He sipped his coffee.
"Coffee ruins your teeth."
"I can manage." He flashed his brilliant white smile at her. Mel sipped her coffee and let the hot liquid soothe her sore thoat.
"Mel, you gotta tell me things." He looked up.
"I couldn't sleep." She rolled her eyes and took back the file.
"All you need to do is think of me." He grinned again.
"You are such a flirt," she sighed. She got up.

You and I will meet again
And you'll be here, in my arms,
"Into the West" by Annie Lennox
The first thing I became aware of was the blinding white light shooting right into my eyes. Or, you know, shooting somewhere. I didn't currently have any eyes, and I didn't feel much compelled to rectify that at the moment. My essence shrank in on itself, looking like a splotch of dirty dish water trying to curl up and go back to sleep.
There was light all around me, but not the kind of swirling, drifting colored light that would have meant I was back Home. No, this was a distinctly Earth-like light, and the sharp pain stabbing through my essence only sealed the deal. I must have been on Earth, and I had been unconscious for some reason.

i think i could love you.
it's not that typical, gushy-movie type of romance. you know, when its reciprocated and everything. it actually feels like my hearts burning. and i'm pretty sure it's saying, "fuck you!"
the thing is, you're so far away. and you're not perfect. and yet, you're the most beautiful thing i've ever seen or heard and if i could run 834 miles just to see you i'd be there in a heartbeat. we could stay up all night and i could listen to you for hours and i'd do my best to kiss away all of your problems and self doubt.
its not even the fact that my feet are cold and i need you to warm them up. i can see us- side by side, growing old together. and i know i'd feel safe.
but hey, uoy htiw snootrac hctaw si od ot tnaw i lla
and until that time comes- i will be here. waiting. knowing that you exist.

It hit him, suddenly, that maybe it would look odd. He was, after all, standing there in front of a school bulletin board for five minutes straight. The one add had caught his attention.
Danny stared at the words: Help us out! Become a volunteer for the hospitals cardio experiments!
Sighing, he flipped his backpack over his shoulder. His father had a heart attack before he was born. He hadnt died from it, no. But it scared Danny so bad when he learned about it, he wanted to fight back. According to this add, maybe he could.
He reluctantly walked away, seeing green because of the brightly colored add. Blinking didnt help; he couldnt get it out of his mind.
What did it matter, anyway? Just a little experiment could never hurt. It might be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to show his father he could help. H

you do not have a terrible heart. you do not
have sad eyes and love is not a war you need
to win. sometimes i feel like disappearing, but
we are never really alone.
every now and then, you can close your eyes
and still find your way. remember to breathe
because you did not sink a paper boat and you
are not floating underwater. you already know
the answer to the question you are looking for.
remember the small things, like the writing in
the borders of pages. see the things that
everyone else misses. listen to your thoughts
and then lose yourself.
laugh until it makes you cry. see things you've
never seen in people before. stop worrying about
your hair and call him just to say i miss you.
do something different and you will be surprised.
let yourself enjoy the sunrise. try and say toy-
boats ten times in a row without tangling it up.

off your bed in your room.

how to:being scared isn't at all like being nervous. it is opening the refrigerator door at three am, closing it. falling asleep and not realising you have woken up. wanting to disappear completely, and realise you could probably do it if you tried hard enough; making yourself stuck in your own mind. it is realising you could tell all your secrets to every soul in the world, and in the end it is still only you, sitting in that room and waiting. alone.how to:5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
everything becomes insignificant. any feelings you may have felt before. you don't even remember anymore why you were sprawled on the kitchen floor that night, drunk and crying. mumbling something about capsicum-monsters and sitting in the middle of the road and a car is coming. you probably haven't eaten for days, but in your mind it is still that moment and it keeps playing like a scratched cd.
you stop regretting that time you contemplated not braking, your attention slipping to the cracking red nail polish on your fingers.
