Chernobyl's StoryI remember exactly where I was the day the reactors melted. The town was quiet, just a normal work day for everyone. Women were home cleaning and cooking; children were busy learning in the local school; men were working at the plants. On days like this the cement streets were nearly silent. A few stray animals ran between the buildings trying to find a scrap of food to eat, but most were unsuccessful. In a desolate town like this, nothing was wasted. There was barely enough to go around as it was. The men could work as hard as they wanted in the plants, but their meager pay would never amount to enough to feed a small family of three.
I was traversing the outskirts of the town around sunset, trying to hunt down a small animal to feed myself for the evening when the alarms sounded. The horrific screeches of the alarms came in short pulses of three. Three. The number of alarms you never wanted to hear. I whipped my head in the direction of the town. The once barely breathing streets wer
serves for life, for truth, and for status. Its chief use for life is sustenance for the soul; for truth, is in finding one's true self; and for status, is the feeling of greatest importance. To spend too much time in love is lust; to use it too much for truth is fantasy; to demand status is unjust. Wasteful people squander love, ignorant people abuse it, and reasonable people cherish it. Love not to question and order, nor to beg and plead, nor to feign and desire, but to honor and be equal. Demanding maketh a desperate person, controlling a spoiled person, and loving a true person. So if a person's heart be stolen, let him search the ends of the earth for its thief, if his heart be damaged in the process, let him begin the mending with a new. Amor est spiritus qui nos alet. So every heart may find safe harbor in true love.
Widening the GapWe're so in tune with each other. The rhythm we move to is perfectly in sync. We can feel the beat so deep within our souls that are movements are innate.
There's never any questioning or second guessing.
It takes years to build skill and trust like this. With one fluid motion the bows are drawn across the strings and the ost beautiful melodies are created.
It's days like these that magic is created.
Please tell me where the magic and trust has gone. Evaporated in the air forever. Gone for an unknown amount of time.
The music is still made, but the passion is over. That unspoken bond between stand partners is no longer a safe one...
But the silence is sure strong.
Good-Bye My AngelI guess this is a formal good-bye. We never really had one did we? I can't blame you for that though. You had to leave and I had my own life to deal with. I think about you often though. Never doubt that.
Thinking back on it, you took a while to trust me. I never pushed you. I understood your fear of new people. My heart skipped a beat when you climbed into my lap for the first time and rested your head on my knee. It started from there, didn't it?
God must have known I needed an angel.
So He sent me you.
YOu wagged your tail so feriously every time you saw me that your whole body would shake. If I didn't play fetch with you, you go crabby and shoved one of your slime covered balls into my heart. You would've kept on playing till your heart burst. Wouldn't you? And if I ever dared to stop petting you, I would find you sitting in my lap, demanding for an explanation. I couldn't help but laugh at you. It was after all quite adorable.
I'm sorry I wasn't there when you left. You held on so
One YearJust a note for you, Love...
Words cannot quite express how this past
year has made me feel. The laughs, the smiles,
the hugs, the kisses. They all became part of the
wonder that is you. My world lit up that night I met
you. One year later, that light is shining brighter than ever.
You promised me forever with a feather-light kiss
and calmed all of my fears with a strong embrace.
For the past year you were my shoulder to cry on,
my late night phone call just to chat, my avid movie
watching companion, my "singing to the steering wheel"
band mate, my fellow dedicated sports fan. But most of all...my best friend.
The holes in my heart have been healed and I can
say it has never beat so soundly in my life. You've
worked your way into my heart.
And it's somewhere you will always stay.
Would You?Can you feel the sunlight on the
dark side of the moon?
Or catch the beauty of a rainbow
from the sky?
Would a humming bird still flutter,
Or the rain continue to fall,
If all the flowers in the world ceased
Can you feel the thunder of the
ocean in your soul?
Or catch the magic stardust from
a comet flying by?
Would you take my hand,
Or hold me close at night,
If I promised you forever with
all of the love in my heart?
Laugh and jump around
Clap your hands to the beat
It doesn't matter who you are
Spin and twirl
Forget all of your worries
So I'm in love with this person that treats me just right.
I can't help but smile at the thought.
To think it's been nearly eight months.
I swear it was just yesterday when we met.
My friends think we're amazing,
And believe it can last.
I have no doubt in my mind.
I've fallen 100%.

cheek flush and eye glaze

she's in his company.
The Abyss in The SkyWould you still
love me if i inject
your heart into my

Long Distance RelationshipThat moment when his attention is not yours,
But we're both actually physically near,
His feelings for me is so far,
yet mine is near.
Until...You were my muse
My Beautiful Saving Grace,
But life's made of seasons,
And so many have passed.
And we've lost,
And we've changed
So very much.
You have to know
I love you so much,
But we've ripened,
And I don't want to be Dead.
So let me kiss you one last time
And wipe the tears from both our eyes.
I love you,
I miss you,
But I can't say goodbye.
So “good luck”
And I'll miss you,
I love you,
Until next time.
A SparkAnd I feel like a wounded animal
Limbs all tangled up
With the way you look at me
Like you don't have a care in the world
But I care,
I care so much it hurts,
The pain visceral and pounding,
I really, really do.
And I feel desperation,
It's clawing up my throat,
But I swallow the nail,
I smile past the burn
Because it earns me a smile,
Beautiful and cold,
And I think I'd do anything...
I thought I'd do anything,
To try and light a spark in your eyes,
But it's never enough,
And I'm starting to wonder
If it isn't me?
If maybe it's you.
Because I have a spark,
Though it tries to flicker and die
Under your cold regard.
Yet still I sit here playing
Your quiet, perfect little girl.
But I'm cracking.
Oh god, I'm bleeding...
but you don'ti miss you in my kneecaps
in my backaches
and in my baited breath
i miss you like sunset
when you lower your light
i miss you like rainfall
when you pour down
i miss you like the first time
and the last time
i miss you
like you miss me too
Pictures In SandI loved you like
The Moon loves the Sun,
The Earth always gets in the way.
And I wanted to love you
Like Orpheus loved Eurydice,
But those were just pictures in sand.
But even with them washed away,
I want you to know
You're burned into my skin
Because I loved you more
Than Angels love Man.
And I wish,
God, I wish,
We could find better placements than sand
Because I'll love you forever,
But I have to love myself first,
So goodbye now,
goodbye's in the sand...
Remember MeDo you ever wonder
If the day will come
Where words run dry
And promises ring hollow?
When smoke clouds die
On bitter tongues
Drunk off coffee
And nothing more than each other?
And do you ever cry
For days gone by
When everything seemed so much cleaner?
Because I do,
I do, my dear.
And I've screamed
And I've choked
And I've pulled it all back together
To this same tempo rhyme
Echoing time after time
Falling like fluttering feathers.
And so I tell you I'm fine
Since I'm not dying inside
Because we're not aching together
So remember me, mine,
And never forget me
On the days when the sun never shines.
InterchangeI want to know you
With every fiber of my being.
I want to know you
When the leaves fall,
I will continue to fall desperately.
To hear the sound of your voice
Brush across the sounds of silent revery
I mean to see you
I mean to know you
But the flutter of my chest
And the blood in my head
Sends me to shivering stillness.
I want to know you
With every part of my soul
I want to see the beautiful parts
Now hidden by dirty soil.
We can clean it away
You can see my stains
And touch them with yours
And we can wash them plain.
I want to know you
With every inch of my skin
I want to trace the heart in your chest
And feel your love pour in.
19 BeatsJust listen to my heart and feel the steady beats.
One. Two. Three. Four. Five.
The rhythm will never change.
Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. Ten.
As long as you are here with me.
Eleven. Twelve. Thirteen. Fourteen. Fifteen.
You steadied the pattern and patched up the holes.
Sixteen. Seventeen. Eighteen.
My life began again when we said "Hello"
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
