Silver Death
At night when the moon is pale and rests in the sky
Like an opaque mirror
I stare out of my window,
And pretend the night is still.
When I stop quivering, I look up.
I let the night pass me by,
My reverie unbroken.
My thoughts are like golden bullets against my skull.
Racing, exploding in a torrent of imagination
That I know I will never be able to put into words.
I cannot say how I feel
Because I would be revealing too much of myself.
I let the night pass me by,
My reverie unbroken.
I sit in my silent bedroom and think of us,
Think of how the sheets still smell of you.
Our dreams were wrapped up in a sweet whisper
Tentatively passed between bodies.
For all this, I cannot sit comfortably.
I let the night pass me by,
My reverie unbroken.
I try to stop myself thinking of the inevitable,
Of the Death that waits beyond the horizon,
How I will feel when I look at the silver moon still smiling
While I lie on the parched earth, fallen from a height.
Will I find myself staring from above at my

Birds are singing,
I laugh; your smile warms me up,
You are radiant.

The Past
Forgotten whispers
Rush through my veins. I shiver;
Acquiesce is gone.

Without Heaven
Every time I look behind me, God turns away from me,
Taking with him his love,
I ask God to look after me, I wept to him every night,
Whispering to him all that was wrong within me.
I shouldn't have needed too, he was meant to look into my heart and know;
I cry every night for the love of his I needed, that I did not receive.
They say God is everywhere, yet he is nowhere in sight.
Can you please, please, please just do something to let me know you are here?
My heart's so full yet my stomach is empty. Fill me up
With your love, let me live without doubt or dread.
Sometimes I feel like nothing, a tiny insignificant blob in a world meant to be perfect.
I try to catch sunlight in my hands, but it is like smoke.
I get down on my knees and pray...
Please God, if you love me, let me have my Paradise.
Let me live right now; let me elope with my Chosen One,
Let us run free in field filled with morning dew,
Let us taste the morning sun,
Let us feel the glowing sunset,
Let us be married in the mo

Catch The Final Snow by Enigmatic-Infelicity Catch The Final Snow :iconenigmatic-infelicity:Enigmatic-Infelicity 3 4
Find me here,
So cold,
My blood is dry,
And though I try,
I reach out for your hand,
You pull away,
Looking around frantically,
Like someone is watching you,
You miss me,
Every day,
You want me to say
I love you,
But I can't.
I still wear the ring on my fourth finger,
It shines, gleams,
You still wear yours too,
That makes me happy,
I can't touch you anymore,
But I still need you.
It gives me something to do,
Just to see you,
You think I'm gone,
But how could I leave you?
Though I'm a ghost,
I'm never far,
We were,
We are,
My husband so fair,
I'm sorry I left you,
Just please don't despair.
You leave flowers
By my marble headstone,
I stand with you,
It's heartbreaking,
I feel horrible to leave you like this,
But please hear,
I'm staying near.
I'm in love,
In limbo,
In love.

To Get What We Give
I have to find her.
I'm the strongest man I know, and yet…
You can tame me, with
A blink of your eyes,
A smile to me,
A declaration of my name,
For that, I give you my potency.
She stood in the maze of a crowd.
I'm the smartest being I am aware of.
Certain of the facts,
Believer of many things…
Creditor, judge, writer, explorer,
Researcher, thinker. But you...
Are the mystery that makes the most sense to me.
For that, I give you my attention.
A million thoughts running through his head.
I'm the most honest guy I've ever met.
That's not to say I've never told a lie,
But you know me… I never let myself
Get away with it.
Does it matter? My word is not enough for you.
Your ears listen like mine,
Actions speak louder than words.
For that, I give you my empathy.
Her eyes met his.
I think I'm the only man alive…
Who knows how to love,
Or is even capable of it
In every way a man can love.
Perhaps that's why you doubted
My three little words

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. We accept the love we think we deserve. And I am done accepting your love.

I don't know if I will have the time to write anymore letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school and you helped me. Even if you didn't know what I was talking about or know someone who has gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don't happen. And there are people who forget what it's like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We'll all become somebody's mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening, I am here and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you're listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.

(Charlie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower)…

Because we all need to be given the chance to be infinite.
