YouYour eyes see into meYou in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
like lightning striking twice
hidden beneath the depths of emotion
into the wake of a storm
whispered veils of silk and sensuality
summoned to dance the dance of night
passion steals through me
But still you see ..
You whisper into me
like soft kisses in a misty breeze
hidden beneath promises that you can't keep
into the ether of eternity
veiled temptation and discordance
summoned to the edge of understanding
sunset settles on my soul
But still you whisper..
You echo through me
like hate on a stormy night
hidden beneath the words of a sibyl
into the dying euphoria
blessed curses and swirling light
summoned to the side of the dying
blackness steals through me
But still you echo..

the fears that drive you
keeping you apart
the mask that you wear
I don my own
fading back from transformation
dancing the dance of oblivion
curiosity refocused and caution ignored
as I lure out the truth from the belly of the beast
no more fear to whisper patience
calm sending waves of anticipation
as the gates of obscurity fade
taking on the lion
with an anvil
Inspired by the weakness
the emotions locked behind the facade
a fortress of inadvertent action
leading to parasitic obligation
inferiority and loss of direction
motivation fails to find me
yet recklessness draws me forward
as I tempt forth the beast
Why should the glory be shared?
when the weaknesses could be exploited?
using pure logic and reason I could seek a better path
emotions get in the way
Raw powerful and changing emotions
that long to sting and bite
the flawed heart
and restrained mind
Boxes and lines adorn the cage
tatters and ruins adorn the body
as still more is asked
redrawn for conveni

I always thought I would
It's all I ever wanted to do
It was unforgivable, what was done to you
I am so very sorry I wish I could heal it
But you've never let me through
I've been doing some thinking too
About all the things we've seen and done
But, it's time we were through
I wanted you too
But the timing was always wrong
It was something I could never do
Your heart I can't mend
I've wanted to try
But your will won't bend
I'll find a way to mend
The inside of my soul
You won't ever need to attend
No matter where I end
I'll remember the good times
Our final show to attend
All things in life come to an end
So my love for you must be repressed
No more will my will ever bend

I am nothing more then a fragment
Peel back the scars
And you will find the bitterness
Tear back the masks
And you will see
Me, staring into the mirror
of Feckless lies and pain
Rebuild the scene and you find
For I truly am better than that
I am me.
Mis-timedI look into your eyes, see the passions that you hideMis-timed in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many things you'd say, if your hands weren't tied
It's always been the timing, that keeps us far away
When you want me closer, I'm afraid to stay
And just when I've changed my mind
Those hands that held me tight re-bind
And so the circle'd dance follows it's chosen path
The broken pieces of the heart, more then we both hath
Our hearts are always closer, then we like to admit
But the way things are now, perhaps it's time to quit
I'm tired of the fighting, and the way things seem to be
The soft look in your eyes hurts, when you see into me
It's like you fear our closeness, but long for it as well
Almost a painful ending, like a broken twisted spell
Your arms you wrap around me, holding on so tight
But deep inside, you push me back an internal fight
When sleep has claimed your eyes, you hold me so dear
But when you're awake, you push me back in fear
I feel drawn to protect you, and to run away so far
Chasing after you, is like chasi

And you may not understand
But the way away from you
was dealt by a kinder hand
I'm not always peaceful and
I'm not always nice
I have my own issues, my own vice
You have someone who you love so well
And if I let myself I'd have fallen under your spell
But had I done that, I'd have hated myself
As you could never be mine
I walked away because deep down I'm still broken
Waking up helped me see the light
But it led to just another fight
As I try to find my place in this world
I realized then it wasn't fair
You have someone who you want there
I was a crush who would fade fast
Your heart beat for someone else, I was last
Torn and broken you had so much fire
But I wasn't who you'd truly desired
And I wouldn't stand in the way
Not then, not now ok?
You can't give me what I'd want
I couldn't ask for it, so I walked
It was harder, then you will know
But it was the right thing..
So many poems I wrote for you
None that you realize, I doubt you do
Torn up inside I kept it all

I let the depths of despair swallow me whole
As these torrid emotions took their toll
When I woke up to see your eyes so pained
I wanted to break you free from them
But there was nothing in me that could free you
I do what I can but it never seems enough
To reach into that soul and hold you up
Those eyes haunt me at every turn
Burning from the depths with something
I can't even begin to fathom
Sometimes I wonder what it is
that pulls me in so many directions
away from the path I made for myself
I chase daydreams of peace with
nightmares of contempt
Waves of distraction rip away the stars
As the moon falls into it's dulcet pattern
of Fair well and Good marrow
The trips that were taken behind
closed and broken doors
Left me far too distracted to be
Anymore then a small crack in a window
As the codes play down into the daydream
and the words spiral outbound into the ether
I often wonder if there is more to life
then this twisted hall of mirrors I see
My FateTears on my sleeves againMy Fate in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Hiding it all deep within
No one understands the pain
Trying to explain in vain
I tempted my own fate
Never really do I rate
It's so hard to navigate
My feeling of self-hate
Feeling such despair
I'm not really there
Not one to really care
The words I'll never share
As the dark begins to rise
I'll see things through your eyes
Destroying things I despise
Seeing the truth behind the lies
The fates knew that I'd cheat
When next it is time we meet
There will be no defeat
Try not to burn from the heat
When the dawn begins to shine
It will all be in line
Take the heart as my sign
My fate will be mine
Lost Love storyNo one loves me, it's okLost Love story in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I think about it everyday
Looking in the mirror, I see
A figment of what I want to be
Nothing truly there
No need to really care
Deep inside I fight the war
Of the heart that you tore
Battered and broken down
Look at my tattered gown
When the stars begin to die
That's when I'll finally cry
But only when there's nothing here
Will I answer you, my dear
For the words have died inside
Behind the mask, I'll always hide
As I change to prove myself
Find my place, my own wealth
I'll not look back to then
That story must reach it's end
AzraelThe girl in front of me is not at all what I thought she would be. It would have been easier if she had been older, angrier, uglier, or even just more disagreeable. She is my age, or perhaps a year or so younger. She smiles at me, a brilliant smile from behind wayward locks of flaxen hair. She has incredibly straight, white teeth, I notice, and her eyes are the palest blue I have ever seen. She seems to stare through me as she addresses me. I realize with a sick jolt that she is blind.Azrael in Fan Fiction More Like This
"I'm sorry, who did you say sent you?"
She shakes her head. "I don't know an Antonin Dolohov."
"No. I'm sure you don't, but he knows you, Miss, and your family." The smile on her face falters for the first time, and I feel the knot in my stomach release in a wave of nausea. She has just realized why I am here.

The teacup he is holding slows on its way to his lips, but he sips from it anyway, and then sets it carefully down in the saucer before picking up his quill again to continue marking the stack of parchments on his desk.
"Did you hear me?" I ask after what seems like an interminable stretch of silence.
"And I should care, why?"
"Because it's yours, you insensitive bastard!" I snap. I'm tetchy with him at the best of times, but the hormones, and the anger I feel at myself for my own weakness and carelessness, the seeming impotence I am suddenly overwhelmed with whenever I think of the enormity of the situation before me, are causing my patience with his short, droll sort of indifference to wear even thinner than usual.
He sets the quill down and leans back in his chair, fingers tented under his chin in a gesture of carefully measured control that reminds me so much of Dumbledore, that it takes me aback for a moment. "It seems I was remiss in assuming that an adult of your

Half a breath away.
First day of classes. First day as professor, and Aurora Sinistra's lips were only half a breath away.
Stranger still, to Severus Snape's great surprise, he found he wanted her to close the distance, to finish what she had started.
He shouldn't want it.
It was unseemly...
But why exactly?

When they entered the room he finally let go of her hand and moved across it in the darkness to light the lamp on the desk by the window. The room blinked into focus, and she looked around her sighing contentedly. I slept here when I stayed a couple of months ago. I hope you dont mind. It appeared that you had been sleeping here too, so
I dont mind.
She had taken up her suitcase from where he had left it at the door, and now she laid it down on the bed and opened it, pulling out piece after piece of rumpled clothing, shaking it out and then moving across the room to hang it up. He stared at her wondering why she was bothering, considering they were going back to the school in the morning. She caught his eye and smiled. Just to get the wrinkles out, she explained.
Now that she was here, with him, it felt strange and he looked about

The woman tied to the chair in the center of the damp, cold room sat very still. She did not struggle. She didnt say a word as he paced back and forth behind her, his heart and guts twisted into knots so tight he feared they might cut off all circulation and be the death of him.
This was wrong. Something was wrong about it.
It wasnt supposed to be a woman. The first person he had tortured had been a man, a very old man. But everything else was the same, the cold, clinging mist that drifted through the small barred window above them, the slimy shiver of the damp walls in the torchlight, the dripping of water from the ceiling, and scratching of rats from beneath the filthy straw piled in the corner
But you know where he is. You were his landlord for nearly a year. Surely he gave you some indication of where he planned to go

Hermione had searched the streets and alleys, the river and the parks, for nearly two hours, but it was as though Severus had just vanished. When she finally got back to Spinners End, there was a little owl waiting for her from St. Mungos with an inquiry from Pye in regard to the days diagnostic results. It was only then that she realized she had forgotten to administer them.
For hours she waited. The sun grew low in the winter sky and set early, as it was apt to due in December. She cleaned up the broken glass in the sitting room and kitchen, and then made herself a little soup, keeping th

Wakefulness claimed her slowly. Her body felt heavy, weighted down, she squirmed a little in an attempt to roll over, but she couldnt. Something no, someone was pinning her to the mattress. She awoke with a start and squinted against the beams of morning light shining from behind the blinds at her window. And then it all came back in a rush.
The weight on her chest was warm, and slightly damp. She looked down at Severus, and sighed with relief that he had not tried to sneak out before she had awakened. The fact that he was still sleeping made her happier still. She could not imagine what he would feel when he opened his eyes and the brutal reality of the night before rushed back on him.
She had to use the loo, but didnt want to move for fear of waking him. His breath wafted gently over her chest, and her skin felt damp. He must have dr

It was raining on Saturday morning; the kind of damp, misty drizzle that could hardly be called rain, but that managed to somehow get under your skin and chill you to the bone. She sat very close to Severus on the bus, her arm and leg pressed up against his. She wanted to be sure that he knew that he had someone, that despite their argument of the night before, she still cared enough to be there with him for him.
In his lap he held a small bouquet of mixed flowers that he had picked earlier from his mothers own garden. He had gone early, before she had even awoke and when she did finally wander downstairs in search of him she found him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and a cigarette, the bouquet in a small glass of water beside him.
She had been a little shocked at the site of him. He had obviously gathered some clothes while home as well, and he was wearing a simple navy blue polyester suit and white

It was dark by the time the three of them returned to the school and Lily felt as though she had lived ten lifetimes in the course of one day. None of them spoke. There was nothing to say.
As they traversed the silent halls of the castle she realized that she had never been there before when the building was empty. The abandoned halls and echoing rooms seemed sad somehow, as though only whispering ghosts of their normal work-a-day selves, and she couldnt help but wonder if Blaise felt it too. He walked beside her, a weary drag in his step as they headed to the dungeons.
Severus strode ahead of them both, back straight, step quick and sure. She was exhausted beyond words, and knew that Blaise must feel the same. It was as though the wake of Severus strength alone bore them up. She could not fathom how he was managing it, and again found herself intrigued and a little awed by t
