Curled in a ball at the foot of your bed makes it easy to think there's nothing in the world but you.
Reviewing the day, you had seemed off; detached. Now you sat at the side of the bed, staring out the window, a hand on your dog's head.
I just wanted to see you end the night with a smile.
"I know it sounded like I was joking when I said it earlier, but you know I was serious, right? You are my hero."
'Why' is a cold word. An unsure word. A word that's been broken and shakily put back together to form some semblance of what it once was and begs for explanations that don't exist.
I hate it the second it leaves your mouth.
"You're the most certain person I know. And always so brave".
You turn your head only a bit from your seat at the side bed, a sadness tugging your lips up in the slightest of smiles before you speak softly.
"You make me brave".
I want a different smile.

The music flowed gently through the pitch black room, adding to the deepness of the slumber over one of the two forms. A large bed with curtains on each side, to hold as much darkness inside for as long as possible. But still a fan peeking through one corner to keep one of them the right temperature. She laid only an inch from the much larger boy who would go to hell and back for her, but fear raced up her spine as she heard different noises from all around the black room. She closed her eyes tightly so they wouldn't imagine creatures in the darkness, but the images of the makers of those noises still flooded her mind. Her small form shivered beneath her thin blankets and she bit her lip, letting out a soft whimper as her mind pictured one a huge, horrid creature reaching out of the darkness for her. Her fear subsided as she felt him stir beside her, but her head was still too full of monsters and demons waiting in the darkness for her. So she continued shivering. The boy grunted softl

Kitchen Moments
I try to not smile as I lean against the stair rail leading to your death trap of a bedroom and watch you at the counter. You're chatting away again and I'm barely listening, just trying to immortalize this almost living feeling within myself as you throw random things that sound tasty to you into the pan on your stove. I never did learn to cook. And that never did phase you.
I smile at the memory of your slightly chaotic eyes as you whipped around, forever full of energy with your stirring spoon to look me in the eye and say, "Ah, that's fine. I like to cook, you like to bake. See? We're balanced!" Eyes alight and face in full smile.
And suddenly you are looking at me with your constant smirk and a question in your eye. I have absolutely no idea what you just said and can only imagine I look like a very confused, slightly embarrassed fish as I drag myself back to the present pleasant situation. You grin, knowing how out of it I can get with my random day dreams and go back to talking

Wicked Grin
You always got me tongue-tied
With a flash of that Cheshire cat grin
Your lips stretched wide across perfect teeth
That looked like they could snap at any moment
And devour me
Bite by bite until I was gone
And I was never quite sure if I was afraid
As words fluttered wildly around in my throat
Desperate to, but never able to
Escape into the air
Between us
Your smile growing wider
As though you could hear my heart pounding
Each beat louder and louder, fasterandfaster
Until the noise of it thundered in my ears
Drowning out everything
Until all that remained was
My noisy heart
Your wicked grin
:iconsadisticbutterfly:SadisticButterfly 8 24
These tears that are coming thick and fast
They feel like splinters of broken glass
As though the shattered pieces of me
are escaping through my eyes
Eyes that are torn
And bleeding. My spirit worn
Out. So tired
Painting my innocence over the walls until
The world is consumed by the smell
Of salt and rust
But it isn't enough
You still won't trust
In me
When it counted
When I needed you to believe in me
You couldn't
Now fragmenting and crumbling I

"Smile though your heart is aching"
He hummed to himself as he worked, happy, at peace. He had always been happiest when in his studio; it was his little sanctuary away from the chaos of the world, where he could relax and focus on his art. Bright sunlight streamed in through open windows as the scents of summer drifted in and filled the room. He smiled as he picked up his charcoal and carried on sketching. Smudging here, stroking there, adjusting this and that, he lost himself for hours in the paper in front of him.
"Smile even though it's breaking"
He sighed contentedly as he finished his latest piece with a flourish. On the page in front of him smiled out the face of a young woman, she was stunning, even with the charcoal smudges that skirted her edges and outlines. He sat back and looked at the framed photo on the side. Picking it up; he stroked the face of the subject tenderly. It was the same woman. His sister in fact. He placed the heavy frame back down, runn

draw out the pus, revolt at the muss
blurred visuals, smoke the residuals
your pillow is smiling
putting off things that need filing
data is compiling
the future of reconciling
- better stop

but dont quit
awaiting input

no user present
- sterile and pleasant
