Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend


Can you hear it beating?
The hole in my chest-
That comes alive
To burn a brand across my sight and mind
Every time you meet my eyes

Is this love,
This eternal mix of pleasure and pain-
The games,
The frightful way, I’m always afraid,
You win me with a glance,
And I can no longer look away.

Is this longing,
The fire consuming me?
The sparkle of brilliant light I see in your eyes
The tickle on my skin.
You stole my heart with a whisper-
And what is my mind to disagree?

Can you hear it beating?
I can.

That was really nice. I like how you didn't really go and say what you were talking about, it kept a kind of mystery even though we all knew what it was. Also, the last lines are the perfect way to end the piece! This is very good!

I agree with hanging_girl_666, this should be in the magazine.  It's really beautiful!  Your excellent vocabulary serves you well. :)
