don't let me run.i'm scared.More Like This
the fears are pressing anxious palms on my shoulder blades and slipping through my skin to ride trembling waves through my veins. they're biting at my ankles and tearing up my dreams, present wherever i look, because no matter how hard i try, i can't run away from you. i'm shaking and clacking and falling to my knees before springing to my feet and running until my pulse is just a canyon wall echo.
please, forgive me for running. forgive me if you find me hiding and sobbing in the corner with my head buried between my knees and my fingers buried in the mud and my heart buried behind the rosebush. try to understand that i want to share my darkest secrets with you, but i'm scared i'll wake up to an empty bed with the window thrown open and my vulnerabilities pouring in with the sunshine.
you see, i'm scared i won't be enough or i'll be too much or you'll get tired of beating your head against a wall and running into the dead ends i'm made of. i'm scared you'll get exasperated
AT- He ain't worth missin'The front door of the Curtis house slammed open, causing Two-bit to look up just in time to see Pony run in and through the living room. Setting his beer down he followed the younger greaser, who he found on his bed. He was laying face down but from the distinct shake of his shoulder, told the real story.More Like This
"Ponyboy," Two-bit said softly, going over to sit on the bed.
"What?" Came the muffled, more than slightly miserable reply.
"What happened?" He put his hand on Pony's back.
"Jeff broke up with me," Pony sobbed again.
Two-bit's jaw dropped slightly and rubbed his back as Pony sobbed more.
Jeff was from a family that wasn't to much unlike Pony's own, he had lost both his parents as well. It was a different times though and Jeff had his aunt and uncle to take care of him. They had met at a track meet that he had gone to see and were more or less inseparable when they weren't out in public. Two-bit never really liked the raven haired
Dally's Death. Danny's POVThe impact of the bullets tearing through Dallas' flesh jerked him half way around, making a sickening popping sound. He dropped to the ground like a stone, a grim smile spread across his face. I could still hear his last words ringing through my ears.More Like This
"Someone has to be with Johnny."
He'd been hinting at me the whole time. Why didn't I try to stop him?
I slumped to my knees, the color draining from my face. Steve's voice seemed like an echo in the back of my head as he screamed at the police men.
"You idiots! He was only a kid and you killed him!"
I swallowed hard, staring at Dally's lifeless body, tears streaming down my cheeks.
He was my love. My life. It was like someone took my world, screwed it up, threw it at the ground and stomped on it.
My heart sank in my chest.
Two-Bit had a horrified look on his face. For the first time ever, life wasn't a joke to him. It was real this time, not only had we lost Johnny, but Dally two.
He glanced at me and I could tell what was running throu
Chp.1 Is this real... or not?Bright flashes of white got through my eyelids. The shining refused to cease so I just decided it was time to get up. As my eyes shifted around the room, adjusting to the lighting, they scanned over a sleeping Sodapop. A loving grin spread across my face and I was careful to not wake him up as I hobbled out of bed.More Like This
Ah, today's the day I turn in my theme.
My body began to beam brightly. To be darn honest, I was pretty impressed with myself. Never in my fourteen years of life have I worked so hard on a project. I shuffled through the mess of papers on the paint-chipped desk. My heart stopped as realization sunk in. It's not there! Everything, gone.
My feet carried me through the living room and into the kitchen. It's a mere habit of mine to look around each room I pass through... And , golly, was I shocked when I saw two sleeping forms in the room. I casually strolled over until I realized who it was... Dallas... Johnny. Not dead, but asleep.
No, no. They're dead right? I just got over t
