Mirrors are covered
Wooden benches are set out
Have a good mourning
Where’s the coffee pot?
I ask my father, who knows
my mother would know
Welcome. Please come in.
Sit anywhere. Except there!
Now that the torches and camp fire roars after being well lit, I sit in my chair at a distance.
There on a log close by in front of the burning logs, you sit. Talking and laughing with the others.
Your light so much bright then the fires I lit.
I am next to you with your fingers in twinned with mine.
My head rests against yours and our hearts beat in rhyme.
I turn to you and look into your eyes.
My love for you reflected back to me in your eyes.
I smile and you smile back
Forever in your arms, you said.
Forever in my heart.
Tears on my pillow
without a sound speak from the past
the future you have to meet alone.
All I ever wanted it faded away
liquid running from your eyes
when you tell there is no use
for me to

As I do the things I need to do for me, and take away the focus on you, the waves of pain disappear. Just like you did. Sadness remains. It’s okay, I loved you. It only seems right.
Next thing I know I emerge from the fog, and there I am. My editor
She rested with my soul.
Why it is that we are not friends...
Pretend, do I to cover the loathe,
the wounds that sow the rends.
Fear I whole, the beat and blow,
that sends my peace a spin.
Would I never leave her so.
That, flames my mind within
Only in a cold, dead world
do men speak in words of concrete.
A world so old that Death is dead,
and feelings proscribed.
This world is the perfect Utopia some seek,
with no pain or sadness,
nor passion nor joy.
God and Satan sleep togethe
Can you believe there are times when I hurt
Can you believe that there is pain within my heart
Can you see that I might miss you too?
Though every time you see me,
And joking around
It's a facade:
what have you learned when writing stories that made you go...duh...
i would re-read and edit some stuff and i saw i wrote out the entire word of "10 mm submachine gun"

So my friend doesn't have many people close to him. Everyday when he gets home from work in the morning, he draws his curtains in his room closed so that it's always dark. He doesn't eat much and sometimes he sleeps for up to 12 hours at a time. He has su

I’ve heard friends stories about their gemini boyfriends. I had an ex or we were talking for 2 months and then stopped talking and then he came back to me. He was afraid and not ready for commitment. Funny thing was I was too. Just as blind as him about
Hi guys! Lets talk about stuff that doesn't matter.
I'm just curious to see if I can relate to anyone.

Do any of you seem to attract the same sign? I don't know what it is but mine seems to be Scorpios. I just started going out with this girl and found out last night she's a Scorpio. That's 4 out of the last 5 (including my ex-wife of 19 years) that hav
