Only In My DreamsMore Like This
Only when night leaks into the sky,
And the stars brighten up with glee,
Only when the silver moon is sighted nearby,
Do you appear beside me.
The day you left made me feel so empty,
Yet I could not shed one tear,
For what I felt was a hollow mystery,
To the days you were not there.
But each night I escape from the World I know,
To a place of my own where you hide,
And the words you speak from your heart to mine,
Keep me warm and joyful inside.
Yet the reason I felt so dark before,
Was not knowing what I know now,
Only in the form of a robin do you return,
And perched upon a branch... You watched me grow.
For, you.You're a stranger passing byMore Like This
Trying to forget the lies
And I see you holding tight
To a past that won't die
You're hollow and worn
I can see your heart torn
Haunted by choices you've made
You just want them to fade
Crash, but don't burn.
Fall, but don't die.
This is how you learn
To forget your lies
I see what you try to hide
I see you caving in
As more time goes by
I see more of your sins
I think you need some sun
Because you're looking so pale
I'd hate to see you lose control
And go off the rails
Crash, but don't burn
Fall, but don't die
This is how you learn
To get back up and try
You hardly notice me
I've tried to make you close
I've wanted to save you
And help you let go
But I am a stranger passing by
Trying to forget my own lies
And you don't see the truth
How much I long to save you
Crash, but don't burn
Fall, but don't die
This is how you learn.
The StormCalm before the stormMore Like This
Happens so often
Crying without tears
Is my everyday life
On the outside I'm smiling
Inside I'm very slowly dying
Is known to be the symbol of happiness on people's faces
Is known to be a disappointed or sad look,
No smile at all
Is to be known as a blank face
In this storm of a life,
It rains every single day
The wind is outrageous
Who could live this?
I'm only happy to know it is me
It is me to be cursed with these feeling
With these images,
With these lies
Because I know I can survive this.
You Tell UsI dare you to speak like a poet,More Like This
with words flowing from your very veins,
as you pour your innermost thoughts into the open air.
You recite them,
and we listen.
It is a poetry reading every day,
every second that you speak,
enchanting everything with the words from your soul,
as you tell us.
And you tell us.
Through rhythm and rhyme,
you tell us.
You took the challenge,
speaking with grace that rivals any dancer,
and giving the impression of an angel on earth.
Your words speak volumes,
echoing through the space of the world and the universe,
as your voice paints pictures.
It seems as though the world is listening,
frozen in time as you tell us.
Your words tell me who I am,
and I listen.
Your words tell us.
You tell us.
As your shaking lips quiver with the quick words,
It is not in any way unique,
but I know.
Warm breath mixes with cool air as you tell us.
You tell us of so many things,
with simple words in a simple conversation.
You speak like a poet,

Close your eyes and visualize a lush forest.
Focus now on a red wolf, this is me.
Allow your breathing to even out as you sink deeper into my realm.
Once you can feel the soft grass under your paws, smell the rich life of nature, and surround yourself in it can you be with me.
Imagine us brushing fur to fur and burying our noses into the nape of each others necks.
This is us greeting and our show of affection for one another.
Follow me to a nearby stream, the water is fresh and full of fish.
Let us eat, drink and play together.
Now we can head to the edge of the forest.
Look up with me at the twinkling night sky.
Isn't it beautiful? Can you see the moon?
Do you feel your moon song growing deep within your stomach and branching through your veins?
Sing your lullaby to the moon with me.
It's an enchanting feeling ♥
Come with me now to our den, the soil is rich and warm, roll in it gently then snuggle close together.
Breathe in Breathe out
Our hearts will gradually begin to beat in

Malik saw his sword against the boys shoulder but it didnt cut through. The boy saw this and smiled at Malik as if the sword wasnt there. Malik pushed harder with his sword but it didnt scratch the boy.

"Now, Ellena, what did your grandmother tell you about playing in the swamp?" The voice that asked the question was soft and far from scolding. Every word that the young woman spoke seemed to be wrapped in love and tied with a smile. For some, such a caring tone would be reserved for only those dearest to them, but for Jessica it just came naturally. For her, every being - human or animal, living or dead - was precious.
That didn't make the child who sat before her any less nervous, the petite girl biting her lip and hanging her head forward so that her chestnut bangs partially hid her face. Far shorter than Jessica's own locks, they were also quite a bit darker and did an admirable job of casting the girl's face into sullen shadow.

No, not here she said silently. With every scrap of force she pushed the desire away. Finally the world shifted.
No one had witnessed her move never mind the subtle power play she had been forced to deal with just by taking hold of her swords.
All the audience saw was the two severed pike-heads laying beside her. The twin swords looked like an extension of her arms, their blades so sharp that the edges gleamed iridescent blue. Keen eyes within the audience saw something moving beneath the metal but could make out no shape or form.
The room was filled with hushed whispers.
Seimei no KajuThere was an old man who lived in a house along with many other people. They weren't poor, and they weren't rich; but they didn't care about money, and what it could bring. The only thing they cared about was a beautiful tree that grew behind their house. They cared about it so much, that all they did was water it, prune it, and make sure all of its mysterious fruits were taken care of equally. And every now and then, someone is found at the base of that tree. This is one of those times.More Like This
"Can you stand, young man?" asked the old man.
The stranger shook his head and looked around him. He turned to the old man and asked, "Where am I? What am I doing outside? What's with this cliff?"
The old man pulled the stranger to his feet and said, "Oh, the place doesn't matter very much. What matters is you're here. So allow me to give you an orientation on what you will soon be doing from now on."
The stranger didn't feel like arguing and just followed. "What will I be doing?"

"Yes, his pulse is weak but he is still alive."
"Good. We cannot afford to lose him. We need to keep him alive just a bit longer. This boy is very important."
"It's such a pity. He is so young.... His life has been so hard...."

Mornings - HakkaiGojyoI could help but smile as I pressed my face into his long crimson hair. He always smelt of smoke, but there was always the smell of him underneath, the scent that was uniquely Gojyo. All I can say is that it's something like spice. I felt him stir in my arms, muttering quietly in his sleep. I pulled him closer as the sunlight streamed over us.More Like This
"Gojyo, you have to walk up before Sanzo and Goku otherwise we may be caught in a rather compromising position," I whispered in his ear.
Gojyo's eyes opened lazily and he looked up at me, a little confused.
And again we moved away from each other.
Lately, whenever we camped out in the car Gojyo and I had woken up like this. Sanzo had taken to sleeping in the back where there was more room, forcing Gojyo in the front with me. And every night while we slept one of us would subconsciously move to the other and we woke with our limbs tangled with each others. It had been a little embarrassing at first.

Ok. It's just a school, nothing bad about that. We meaning, Sarah, Tricia, Tom and I stood in front of the yr 8 class, while the teacher introduced us. I could feel their eyes assessing me, my skater like clothing, my pink streaked black hair and my green eyes; yep that's me, Tammy.
A chill, like a cold finger ran down my back. I wanted to run but I knew that we had to hide at this school for a while. Tom was starting to shake. I tapped him with my foot before he could think of morphing into his dog shape.
We could all morph into an animal of some sort and if you look closely you can see by the way we dress and look sort of matches what animal we can morph into. Walking over to our seats we sat down and listened. Halfway through the lesson, people in the class started ignoring the teacher and talking amongst themselves, loudly. The teacher turned around and told
