When You're Gone
Apologies are often open ended,
If you don't mean it.
You want to say it before you don't have the time.
Somewhere out there,
He's watching me.
Somewhere out there,
You're telling me it's alright.
But it's not…
Because when you're gone,
And I'm watching you go.
Where you're gone,
And I'm left here all alone.
When you're gone
And they see,
There was nowhere else to be
But with you.
I didn't get to say-
I still whisper into the air at night,
Though you're not there.
I need you next to me but never again, no~
If I could it take it all back,
I'd do it over again.
Turn it all around
Someone needs to hold me back.
Don't say it's alright,
Because it's not.
They'll say,
And try
To take it away.
They'll say,
To come
In from the rain.
And I'll say:
"Here I am,
Standing alone in this rain."
All that I am is here to say.
The only thing I'm missing is you.
Because when you're gone,
You said everything was gonna be OK.
When you're gone,
Nothing's ever gonna be th

Wrong Person, Wrong... PREVIEW
I was in the middle of finishing Prospero's sad-excuse of a soliloquy when the phone rang. I ignored as I finished the final verses. I was expecting more action in this Shakespearean comedy/tragedy. Gloria, the housekeeper, came running up to the door of the study. She's a Russian woman with the funniest, yet most adorable accent. Her hair's always put up in a bun, a supposedly classic look for middle aged women from Russia. She's a bit round, but a good person all in all. She handed me the phone and quickly returned to her work.
"Hello?" I said into the receiver.
"Is Mr. or Mrs. Goodwin available?"
I rolled my eyes at a potential telemarketer. With a mental sigh, I set The Tempest down. "No," I answered simply.
"Is there any way I could get a hold of them?"
"They're all the way up in Toronto." I heard a soft, "oh."
"What is it you need?" I asked.
"Is Alexandra Goodwin available?"
"This is she," I replied. Things were getting curiouser and curiouser by the moment. "Why?"
"I'm sorry Mis

it's like you said
Can you, for just once, listen to what I have to say instead of just busily chatting away?
Because if you did, then I wouldn't have to sigh in the halls when I see her trying to get all over you. I see that she's funny. I see that she's nice. But in the end, it doesn't really matter what I see; it's what you see. And that leads to the question of what do you see? Do you see someone who's just a friend or someone more?
While that grace period lasted, we had our little jokes and rendezvous in the school hallways. We had our hugs and laughs, our own way of exchanging notes in classes through folded paper hearts. We had even more before that. It's like you once said: I hold more memories of you than anybody else. It's the two of us who have our secret inside jokes. From "mario on steroids" to "vampires with CB radios." I'm the friend that watched you grow up playing Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh and all the other embarrassing moments.
So I really just have to ask, and I'm dying t

Flightless, except on wires.
Sightless, if not for a gift.
But never voiceless.
Blue, ridged irises like a jewel's facets
That none would dare look into.
Sight to the blind was blasphemy-
And so they gave her chains.
Sing, angel, and the world applauds
Clapping for encores until you go numb
And your golden throat is tarnished.
Sing, slave, and forget your fear
Of the world outside bonds and fetters
Of the moment when the phonograph
Scratches to a halt.
You are blind to the world around you
As they cheer you, chained to the pedestal.
To the end, you outrun your predators
Who would hunt you and peck out your eyes.
Chromaggia, of the silver talons
Blood staining the fake snow,
Has found the power at last to die.

The Fall of Spring
In the 21st century, spring was a time of rebirth. The sun came up from the skies, the wind would rise. The flowers would bloom again and the trees would bud. It was as if all around the world, the biological clock of nature and humans said, "it's time!"
Jack, however, never once understood this concept. The whole "spring feel" was as alien to him as a Dalek or a Slitheen. He could barely remember a day in his long lived life that was a happy, worry-free spring day. First it was waiting in fear of invaders on their Boeshane Peninsula. Then came the terrorizing attack in which he lost Gray. Somewhere down the line, Jack found out that first time he'd died had been in the springtime. And the last time was when he left Earth for good.
Spring. What was that but a name for a period of time? It was truly and surely a misnomer. Fall, on the other hand, it meant everything. Dying. The leaves, the trees, the flowers, the weather. His heart. After all, September 2009 of the 456 was in the

Wow, so in exactly 2 and a half hours, my 1 year sub will finally have run out. Which means that in exactly 2 and a half hours, I will finally be 21.

A whole year has already gone past like a flash. It's hard to believe how much has happened in that time. And since I will have no more pretty journals, I wanted to write one more, just to make my page look nice haha. Plus I adore anything to do with Keep Calm And Carry On, so I couldn't resist.

I couldn't for the life of me even try to list all the people whom I wish to tell how much I love them, and thank them for sticking with me, even though we all know how insane I can get at times. I've made so many new friends and lost so many old ones in this past year, and I just want to say I love you all. But for now, I'm going to use this last journal to broadcast my friend's work, because art is pretty. Also probably going to put in some random favs of mine, so deal with it :heart:

Big Riku's Life Guide pt2Welcome to the second installment of Big Riku's guide to life. In this issue, we look over the complex, bare truth of the issue of pantsless people. Come with me now as we delve into this half-naked debate and ask the question: "Peter, it's 7 o'clock and you're still wearing pants. What's the occasion??"
1) Where have my pants gone?
For some, it is not an issue of feeling the need to remove their pants, it is quite simply a matter of, as the saying goes, getting caught with their pants around their ankles. Take, for example, last night. After coming home last night around 10 oclock, I went to bed with my beloved Kairi and promptly started takingtheboatdown (only Ryan will understand this. All others, just give up.) After about an hour, Emo!Axel surprised me by coming home and taking her pants off, entirely without knowing I was there. I came out of my room and found her in the hallway, still without pants. In moments like this, there are several options to take.

The Wordsmith asks me.
I nod nervously, unsure of what to say. Any words I say are forfeit to this man. He could steal them forever as payment and I'd never be able to use them again.
"Let me get a look at you then, and I'll see if you can have one of my words."
I step into the dim light towards the man who forged language. He sees me and I can see him. Just. He seems to fade in and out of reality, maybe he isn't real. Maybe he's just a word. The Wordsmith… Just what is he? He's always there, giving you the words you need, taking away the ones you shouldn't say yet, making new ones all the time. He gives you your name and he can take it away again because he made that word and it's his. We're his. Humanity is a word he made.
He tilts his head to the side and then to the other. Almost like an owl. He doesn't look like one though. He looks like what we describe him as. His words used by us give him form. I couldn't tell you what he looks like though
The Watch and the WatchmakerSpace.
A strange word,
     I made it myself.
         It seemed apt.
It was dark, empty.
It stretched on forever.
An expanse of just this.
All there was for me,
was this pen, these four walls,
and my own inspiration.
Usually, I would amuse myself
with more trivial things.
If only I could describe them.
But a day upon where no other
thought came to mind, I began
something far greater than before
and it was marvellous, exalted,
by myself alone. Until another came.
Until he continued my legacy.
Look upon my tale and wonder:
if he and I were one and the same,
what is he? What am I?
I drew an oval upon the floor.
I drew upon it strange shapes,
with amusing loops and
strange configurations.
          I called it a planet.
I decided the oval was lonely.
So I drew more of them
of different sizes, shapes

Take A picture to remember me. by Rainbowsaresad Homophonous 03 by Linkie-luva 6. Break by King-of-Sweden117 :thumb116292578: Two Fast, Three SlowThere is a knock at the door.
For a moment I sit there, light from the TV shining against my face. It's a nice night; not warm, not cold, but if I go outside it smells of stars.
I shudder, stand.
Knock, knock, knock.
Two fast, three slow, playing to a tune in my head. Two fast, three slow. Two fast...
I grin wryly, retreating to the kitchen. The TV is blaring, the kettle is whistling and my hands work automatically. My thoughts are miles away, years behind me, days in front of me. I stop and for a moment, all I see is a supernova of colour.
Two fast, three slow, there is a knock at the door.
Clutching a cup of coffee I curl into the couch by the fire. Images flash before my eyes, colours and scenes being acted out cheerfully that hardly register in my head.
For a moment, the world loses focus, swirls and dances around my head. I laugh, shut my eyes and all I can hear is a knock, knock, knock.
Two fast, three slow, it won't stop pounding against my head.

Yes, it has been a while, and I'm very sorry to have left. I don't even remember why I left. I think I just stopped logging in one day. I'm not even sure.
Or maybe I found Twitter...
