You May Say I'm An Artist...More Like This
I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,
it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope,

A Girl Like YouMore Like This
The thoughts left churning round n' round.
In my head, so safe and sound.
They're finally ready, I'll shout 'em to the world.
The thoughts inside, about a wonderful girl.
Who would have thought; this miracle that is you;
Could happen to me, it's too good to be true.
So many nights of dreamless slumber
Now overtaken with dreams of wonder.
I'm always wanting to blow your mind
The way you do, because you're mine.
But I can just be myself, finally.
I can be anything I want to be.
Those songs on the radio you always ignore.
The ones of love and passion galore.
They're quite clear to me, now that I'm aware
Of the things you do to me, it's just not fair.
The way I feel, I've never quite felt before.
My senses, heightened evermore.
I'm seeing things clearly for the first time
In a very long time, it's like no other high.
The air is more refreshing.
Birds, more sweetly, singing.
Food tastes better.
But your voice, there's nothing sweeter.
How I feel after each kiss
It's unreal; total bliss.
for once in my life, i know.i know what its like to need someone. to have them say goodbye and let go of your hand, and feel like the world has stopped, and in order to keep it turning, to make sure the sun sets and the rain falls from the sky and to keep your feet moving one step forward, two steps back,More Like This
you need them there, holding you, loving you, and needing you, too.
i know what its like to want someone. to have that irresistable urge to kiss them, or sit there and just stare into their eyes and think "this is real beauty." to want their hand on your hip and when they kiss you to run their fingers through your hair. i know that lust. i crave for it.
i know what its like to miss someone. to feel lost, empty, incomplete. [there are way too many words to describe that feeling.] but not just miss a lover - no no no - it hurts no matter who you miss. that pain stabs at you like a thousand and one knives and it kills and it strives and it just wants to be whole,
even if it cannot be.
i know what its like to love s
How to Train Your Lesbian"I just think you're being too reckless." "What!?" "You heard me! You need to think before you act Ruffnut..it's almost like you're showing off or something." "Shut up." "No!" "I said shut it!" With that, Ruffnut backhanded Astrid across the face firmly, the reverberation echoed sharply throughout the room. Astrid touched her fingers to her cheek gently, her eyes wide with disbelief. Ruffnut's expression of anger hadn't changed as she left the room, punching the door as she passed it.More Like This
The next day Ruffnut spotted Astrid throwing rocks off the ledge overlooking the sea. She hiked up to her. "Hey..." Astrid threw rocks harder "That wasn't me yesterday babe." "Whatever." "I mean it Astrid! I just..I dunno." "You tend to not know a lot huh? Good to see your brain's at work." "You're making it harder to apologize to you." "It doesn't matter, I don't want you talking to me." "What??...Astrid." The girl stopped throwing rocks and started back towards town. "Ast

Enter fast the realm of sleep.
Hush now, my angel
Feel the darkness, so serene.
Fall now, my angel
Into the beauty of a dream.
Now tell me, my angel,
What is it that you see?
Show me, my angel
Solve for me the labyrinth of your mind
Trap me, my angel
Whisper to me "you are mine."
Touch me, my angel
Let me show you how love is blind.
Won't you kiss me, my angel?
Or do you fear what you will find?
Hear me, my angel
Let my voice encompass you.
Trust me, my angel
For I love all that you do.
Listen, my angel
In return for all I do,
Please love me, my angel
Because it's all I ask of you.
You are the SunlightMore Like This
It started off like this
When I gave you that first kiss
It took you by surprise
And made me close my eyes
I won’t lie, I was scared
As you stopped and stared
I couldn’t even breathe
But then you kissed me
It shattered all our fear
And made our love clear
My feelings only grew
But inside I always knew
The time you fell from the swing
From the first time I heard you sing
The first time you held my hand
I was so nervous I couldn’t stand
Even though I can’t cook
You still give me that look
My hearts melts every time
Reminding me how you’re mine
You’re the ending to my story
And the happiness that I keep
My life is never boring
And why I’m peaceful as I sleep
I love you with all my might
I love you with my entire soul
You’re the love that’s always right
And the love I can’t control
You’re the reason why I fight
You’re the reason for my laughter
You’re the everlasting light
You’re my happily

“When were you planning on telling me?”
Sherlock’s deep, smooth voice cut through the whirlwind of thoughts that had occupied you. Your head jerked up in surprise as you gaped at him, panic filling your chest as you quickly moved to hold your sluggishly bleeding arm behind you.
Still stubbornly feigning innocence though you were certain that he had seen, you forced your voice to remain steady as you replied, “Telling you what?”
Sherlock’s gaze was dark and piercing, unreadable as he spat, “Did you really think I wouldn’t find out? I notice everything. Especially you.”
“What are you talking about?” you snapped defensively, fighting the expanding vortex of feelings that threatened to exp
