Words flow tripping
over the rocks in my throat
bouncing, burbling, running
forth to meet an ocean
lost in a melding and shift
in constitution
salted fresh and
freshly salted
clean and brisk the river
enters fathomless depths
long is the length and span
of time a single drop
of water lives.
watery words
a random extended metaphor :D
Loading...
Smile a little wider because it's that or cry
Laugh a little louder because it's that or sob
Dream a little longer, think a little harder,
speak a little softer because
remembering in the past tense
hurts.

The bit of a person cut out by Death's scythe
is ethereal, invisible, to all or most yet still
the corporeal is what will be missed

An echo is not the same as the shout
a whisper in the caverns never as loud as the silence
of someone no longer breathing

The ripples are not the same as the stone that caused them
but they linger for far longer
even as the stone is polished away into grains of sand
bits and pieces microscopic, hard to find
even if one knows to look for them

The effects of a cause far outlast the cause itself
becoming nothing but a page in a history textbook,
a footnote in someone's memory
to be forgotten after the test

No matter who they had been
when others are left behind
all the good comes to the forefront
and so does the sadness
of the realization no more new memories can be made
with the one cut by Death's scythe.
Scythe
Sir Terry Pratchett. He died on March 12th, 2015 and he shall be missed by so many, not only for his writing but the presence he had in the world. The idea that such a creative man was alive, he was like a living inspiration to me. Of course, I'm sure his family is hurting far more, and I had never met the man, but still. The death of a man so admired is hard.

I am listening to pirate metal and enjoying it greatly. This is a thing.  and  yeah I spent an hour listening to Alestorm. AND ENJOYING IT.
You talk as though you know me
as though you know what I am
when I am alone.
You don't.
I don't see how you ever could.

I do.
You're shaking your head like I'm lying
but I'm not.
I know you.
I know you're afraid of loneliness,
afraid you'll find out you're less than what you think you are,
afraid to find out that you're normal,
that one day you will lose your ability to laugh
because some days it feels like, like, depression isn't just an exaggeration
of the sadness you feel when you're... alone.

Hey.
Hey, don't cry, don't turn away from me-


HOW? How can I look at you?
No, don't touch me!
Who gave you the right?
You have no RIGHT to look at me like that,
like, like-

Like what? Like I love you?
Like I desire you?
Like I find you incredibly attractive,
even when your nose is leaking.


Why? Why are you- why are you the one?
The one who makes me smile even when I'm crying,
why can you look at me and see ME?
And don't give me that bullshit about how you 'love' me.
Love doesn't exist.

No? Then how about this.
If, a year from now, January 18, at 4:03pm exactly,
I tell you I love you,
you agree to marry me.
And for the rest of your life,
I'll prove love does exist.


...fine
Your palms are sweaty. Let go.

What was that?

I said, let go of my hand.
Your palms are sweaty. And cold.

No, no, you said 'fine'.
Are you agreeing to marry me?


That's not what you said!
You said-

I know what I said.
Do you know what I said?
Do you know what you said?


I know what I said.
You know I'll never love you back, though.

How can you never love me back,
when love doesn't exist?
I know it exists, but you don't believe it does,
so how can you never do something that you don't think exists in the first place?


I- I hate it when you're right.

Yes. And a year from now, I'll prove it.
Now, how about some dinner?
A Daring Proposal
.... sometimes, I really do question what the hell my muse is trying to say. The first line, and only the first line, is what popped into my head as I was answering messages and looking through all your lovely deviations. So I wrote that first line, and then the rest followed and I'm just... :shrug: I don't even know how to classify this conversation. Is this prose? Poetry? WHAT EVEN.

Why do you cry, child,
Why are your tears so black?
What do you cry for,
What is it you lack?

Whatever wish you ask,
I'll grant it.
Whatever hope you hold,
I'll fulfill it.
Whatever dream you dream,
I'll make it come true.

For you see, child,
I am you.

A poem to go along with the picture by hgfdsasdfgh The picture is the ID =)

A high school Filipino Canadian female, and a violent bookworm, I enjoy arguing about the most inconsequential things. Fantasy fiction is my favourite genre, as well as romance and comedy. I have read many mangas, and watched a few animes. That's pretty much it?

That wonderful picture up there is by the magnificent :iconhgfdsasdfgh: :love: Thank you so much you marvelous friend!

Current Residence: On a planet on an arm of the spiral galaxy the Milky Way
Favourite genre of music: Usually upbeat, or ones whose message I like
Favourite style of art: Expressive, simple, or amazingly detailed and looks effortless
MP3 player of choice: One that I am unable to break.
Personal Quote: Live life to the fullest, because tomorrow may not arrive.

Ah, university and all that, it's busy. But hey, I finished my midterms! I didn't do too bad, but I am disappointed with my physics mark. Ah well, such is life.
