Leave me alone...
He runs his hands through my hair as he stares into my eyes.
Stop touching me. Stop looking at me that way.
I feel his lips upon mine and my eyes flutter shut.
Stop toying with me. We both know you don't mean it.
His body pressed unnaturally close to me and I feel the heat.
A still broken heart trying to fly...trying to fight.
I feel his hand brushing away tears of the past.
No. Don't do this to me. Don't make me believe...
"Please, darling, don't make me pay for their mistakes."
Just stop. Don't say the right thing at the right time.
He tells me he doesn't care how long he has to wait for me.
Forever! I'll never succumb to love again.
He says he needs me. He tells me he wants me in his life.
I don't want to believe. I can't let myself believe...
He told me I was made just for him.
I wasn't made for anyone
He says he can't believe he was lucky enough to find me.

When we spent late nights talking about everything and nothing, I should have told you that I was attracted to you.
When you showed me your sensitive side, then hurriedly tried to cover it with a witty phrase, I should have told you that I was in awe of you.
When the rain was falling, so fast we couldn't see, I should have kissed you.
When the night was cold and you complained of it's bitterness, I should have held your hand.
When you smiled and my knees went weak, I should have told you.
When you touched me, I should have mentioned the jump of my stomach.
When I saw the ache of sadness in your eyes, I should have held you fast to me.
When I looked into your eyes, and you asked what was the matter, I should have told you that I adore you and when you showed me things, no one else has, I should have said, that I feel everything for you.

Actor 1(Curiously)How so?
Actress 1(Mussing and impassive, but some what passionate)You see life is extremely fond of whispering lies to us. She states to us in our most naive times, particularly our childhood, that if we want something enough all we must do is reach for it and grasp it in our hands. We ravin this thought like it is the sweet fruit from an enchanted tree, or the finest roast at a dinner. We grow up believing this from the prime of our youth, that we do, indeed, soon find ourselves striving for a dream we crave so badly.

Harry winced as he tried to stand up, but it seemed that tripping over that root had twisted his ankle and he couldn't put any weight on it at all. He looked up to call for Ron and Hermione to stop, since obviously they hadn't heard him the first time, but they were already long gone. Great, now he was stuck out in the forest alone, unable to walk, and no one knew he was here. Could this evening get any worse?
He crawled over to a tree and sat back against it, absently brushing dirt and rocks from his hands. It would have been relaxing to sit here in the woods under the night sky had it not been for the terrified screams coming from the direction of the campsite. Of course, even that might have been a little more tolerable if his hands weren't bleeding and his ankle wasn't throbbing.
It felt like hours that he sat there, listening to the screams and the wind, waiting for his friends to realize that he wasn't with them, though he knew

nothing to test this
mind I hope I have
I hope I can stand out.
I hope I can lose the doubt
that no one hears me when I shout:
I want to be somebody.
The future lies upon me
My parents hope for me,
pray for me, push me.
People said it would be hard
but you didnt believe that.
In the dark, you couldnt conceive that
the kid you were, would become
Fear rises and fear falls.
You ignore it, but future calls.
I dont want to face it, but it looms tall.
IB, AP, CNN, and NBC,
it all comes so quickly.
The world hits me, and I have to take it.
But god I wish I could fake it
like I did when I was in the dark.
I have to choose, left or right.
Losing sight, throat is tight.
The future looks bleak, and I am weak.
Wars are fought, and gas prices are steep.
What hope could there be
for someone like me in this cruel fantasy?
So I search inside myself,
hoping to find the future
Ill have to face.
I envy those who know their path.
My MindIn the far reaches of nowhere, somewhere hot, there is a lone shopping center with a corner wedged into the side of a steep hill.

There are the typical stores: the nail salon nobody has heard of, the Arabic store nobody has heard of, a Game Stop, and of course a MacDonalds. But these are unimportant. In the corner of the shopping center, the corner pressed into the hillside, is a coffee shop. Not like a Starbucks, but like an indy coffee shop, like the ones that have the neon sign saying Coffee Shop.
The coffee shop has windows that are stained and tinted (well tinted to the degree that they must have been tinted at one point, but now they just seem slightly dirty and dont serve their purpose anymore). Next to the shop is a healthy tree that seems like it has and always will be in blossom. The ground around it is littered with pink flowers and spon

It's what we do.
We tell a lie and then tell one more.

These pale reflections of a past
Of darkest shadows
Of fun at last.
A dance between just two

Laugh now, while theres chance

But should it be to the lass in red?
The words she said?
Its too late your time is up
Now pass around
Lifes empty cup.
The one that held the wine so sweet,
A glimmer of red
Your lady's retreat
The ache of loss, because shes gone
You wonder now
Where you went wrong.
But I shan't tell your pretty face
That another's lips
shes went to taste.
I'll sit upon the ancient throne
And all the lover's
But love without meaning is a lie.

The spell is gone and so am I.
Knowledge I've left...

I planted it firmly and prayed it would take root.

I tore down the walls around my heart.
I demolished them into bits of rock and dust.
I just never expected to need them back
Or realize the strength I lack.
While no one was watching...
I cried myself to sleep.
I let all my tears just flow.
I just never expected to feel so damn weak
Or know its your love that I seek.
While no one was watching...
I died a little inside.
I felt that piece of me slipping from reach.
I just never expected anyone would know

After everything that I have done
Can we ever really be?
Just look into the sun
And remember I'm by your side
I swore once that our love was true
But I got lost in myself
Because I was afraid to love you
But when you look in my eyes
I see the pain deep down inside
And I feel guilty for what I've said and done
I never ment to hurt you
And I never ment to break you
For almost 4 months we didn't speak
And that's when I got off track
I thought I wanted someone new
But now I see your all I need
If I took your hand
Would you take me back?
If I fixed the wrongs
Would we make things right?
You're the only guy
Who used to make me feel right
Helped me when I was down
Turned the lights on in the dark
When everything was falling apart
So if I went and took your hand
Would you take me back..again?

I've been meaning to write this to you for quite some time. I've always wished that I could make you see just who you really are. But you never listen. So maybe you'll hear me in this letter to who you claim to be.
You're not just any girl. Not at all. Your silence brings beauty to the words of others. Your words crack open the things left unsaid, and shine light on all the places few dare look. You have a way about you that whispers of a majesty, and yet you always hold others up beyond yourself.
Your eyes could scratch past the surface of the "hello"s and "how are you?"s. You refuse to see less than all there truly is.
I wish that others would let you know, and maybe someday you'll figure it out. Because I know the truth. Can't you just once try to see who you really are?

Wondering where I went wrong
I hoped it wouldnt come to this
I guess I knew it all along
I stare at these sheets
The color no longer so bold
And think back to an earlier time
When this cloth was not so cold
Remember when we picked them out?
The month that we were wed?
You wanted them blue to soothe
And I, them, passionate red.
Remember how we used to tussle?
And you always used to win.
Youd pin me to the bedroom floor
Then it led to so much more
I remember in the kitchen
Even over the table and chairs
A heated look was all it took
Youd chase me up the stairs
But now your breathing is slow
I know that youre truly asleep.
I wish to tell you what I miss
That its your touch I seek

I should just tell you now
Tell you that Ive missed you so

So I bite my lip

There are two gates, one must close.
The gate to happiness in an inviting pose.

Can I go back? Will the message relay?
Ill do anything now but opt to stay.

Relentlessly tying myself in knots,
Alone in the cold night I stand,
With chilling rainfall all around me,
Tracing the outer lining of my constitution.
I remain still,
Seeking purification, hoping to wash away my sorrow.
Drenched, i reach out to feel the rain on my fingertips,
While elevating my hand toward my direction,
I watch the drops as they glide down my fingers and across my palm,
They slither beneath my sleeve,
The cool sensations vanishing to nothing the longer they run.
I then collect my thoughts and wonder,
Might this be what i am to become the longer i run?
It is apparent that my emancipation is overdue,
Emotions kept so deep within me,
Lurking in the darkest corners of my inner crypt,
Hysterically itching to break free.
They claw at my flesh,
Embossing my chest,
With a thirst to be declared to whom it may concern.
Reluctant to grant their freedom,
My chest remains concealed,
Never bare; always guarded,
And camouflaged with a smile.
