Reaching Forever Upwards
Constructions of stone,
That make you fall to your knees.
Not in awe. In pain.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 0 1
A Night To Regret
Short dress,
High heels.
Too much drink.
It shows.
He took her home,
And he put her to bed...
She wants to remember what she can't,
And then forget the rest.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 0 3
Cicadas sing all day,
Crickets sing all day.
Silence isn't real.
Water constantly slips through the clouds,
Falling slowly towards the ground.
Just like a dripping tap.
The Drought is a lie.
The full moon rises,
Giving 10 hours of pure silver.
Sleep no longer exists.

Gone Exploring.. by Mills-and-Boon Gone Exploring.. :iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 0 4
They told me it was Summer.
The sun was strong and it was hot.
I got sunburt,
It sure felt like summer.
The sea smelled like summer,
So did the sand, the sunblock.
The melting tar on the road did too.
There were bright colours everywhere.
Short skirts, shirt-less guys...
It looked like summer.
It definately sounded like summer.
Cicada's were buzzing,
Radio's were playing cruisy music.
The summer food came out.
We had barbeque dinners,
And ice-blocks in the middle of the day.
But it just didn't seem like summer to me.
Last night...
Eating sausages on bread, hot chips and beer.
After working outside in the hot sun for five hours.
Lifting and lifting, hands and arms aching.
Everyone wearing dirty old jeans and covered in dust.
Country music playing out of the cruiser's speakers.
The rumble of machinery, people shouting instructions.
The smell of hay throughout it all.
All of a sudden, summer was here.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 1 12
The Stories We Tell
It is not a story.
It's one sentence.
Straight forward.
It could be just a touch.
Or even a look.
You don't have to tell a story.
If you think you do,
I don't think I want to know.
I don't think I care.
It shouldn't have to be a story.
If it is:
It's spoiled.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 0 5
The Blackboard
Old words,
Hidden behind other words,
Shapes and shadows of the past.
They keep building up,
Words piled on top of other words.
Smudges that were never cleaned away properly.
Soon there will be no room for any more.
Just a mess of words,
That should have been forgotten long ago.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 1 5
Just That Little Bit
It’s more than just passion.
It’s more than just pleasure.
Just that little bit more,
Is what keeps me awake at night,
What I want is,
Just that little bit less.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 4 7
All Gone
The empty bottle stands on the table,
Just within reach,
yet, somehow, alone.
Not long ago I watched the bubbles.
Rising from the bottom of the glass,
Making pretty patterns on the surface,
Now the glass is empty aswell.
And I can't help wondering:
When did it all disappear?
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 0 0
I make a decision that you don't like,
So you change it,
Using any means.
Every time.
It's so much effort --
Too much --
And always for nothing.
I'm giving up.
I can't be bothered anymore.
I just don't care anymore.
Do what you want.
You win.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 2 5
I can't get enough
Of your magical stuff.
I want more.
You can make me feel good,
The way that you should.
I want more.
You can make me sigh,
Then you make me cry.
I want more.
Until you arrive,
I don't feel alive.
I want more.
I could live without you,
I just don't want to.
I want more.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 0 8
You're only here for small amounts of time,
Every second of that is precious.
You were gone for so long,
I missed you.
Now you are back,
I wish you could stay.
I know you will dissapear again,
Maybe you will return after.
But I can't count on you,
Can I?
But that's in the future,
Right now you are here.
And every moment is magic.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 2 5
Rarity Leads to Extinction
They may be few and far between,
And getting more rare every minute.
The bad bits inbetween seem to suffocate them,
And sometimes it's easy to forget that they exist.
But when they pop up out of nowhere,
Those good times are amazing.
But wanting more than just sometimes,
Doesn't mean I want perfect.
All I'm saying is that:
I want it to be worth it.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 1 2
I stand outside.
In the middle of nowhere.
And it's dark.
The sun is gone,
Suffocated by the black clouds.
Lightning jumps across the sky and thunder chases after it.
The rain pounds down.
Surrounding me.
Drenching everything.
Looking up,
I see needles of water racing towards the ground.
But I'm in the way.
It runs through my hair and my clothes,
Fitting it all to my body,
Creating little waterfalls from every end.
The absolute violence of the storm is beautiful.
And scary.
Yestarday I would have said:
Compared to whats going on inside me,
It's calm.
But the storm came a day too late.
I don't need the violent outlet today.
Today I am calm,
Nature is the one out of control.
And it makes me feel even better.
But I still wish the storm had come yesterday.

The Choice
She should have given up and walked away. A long time ago.
     But she didn't.
Every second since she realized has been another chance to end it all.
     But she hasn't.
They say she has the power to bring it all to a stop. All she has to do is make that choice.
     But she can't.
It would take so much effort. Energy she no longer has.
She's not that strong. She could never withstand the charm.
And if by some chance she made it, what happens after?
     If she does?
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 1 2
Alone Beside You
I lie curled up for warmth.
On my half.
I don't cross that imaginery line.
No matter how warm you are.
Or how cold I am.
I do not reach for you.
I am worth more,
Than what you give me.
I cannot deal with the pain tonight.
:iconmills-and-boon:Mills-and-Boon 2 5

No worries. I've been without internet for a month, so I've been pretty absent too. I'll check in occasionally at work though.
