“I Was”
Only a bottle of pills
And a rusty razorblade
Before you took them away.

“You Were”
Waiting patiently,
Your friendship outstretched,
Maybe you knew,
How much I needed you.
You were there,
Always there,
Talking to me with your eyes.
Waiting.

“We Are”
Innocent heaps of giggles,
Slouched beside each other,
On the basket ball court by the pond,
Trying to raise our voices,
Over the sound of the frogs.
We are snowballs in the face and back,
Clinging onto fleece jackets.
We are the fall of a clumsy girl in the kitchen of a castle,
Children playing catch with a golf ball.
We are honey and snickers and honey bunches of oats with almonds,
Lucky charms marshmallows,
And the vibrations of the piano.
We are the gentle pitter-patter of raindrops on cold skin,
And the silent booming of sweet thunder.
We are fingers entwined and goose bumps.
A much needed embrace.
We are in love,
We just don’t know it yet.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Well, That's great  :D

That's great news. I hope everything works out with him. I really do. Ahh, young love.  So far, I'm well. No official decision...yet. Thank God they extend my admission offer till May 15; so I have a few more weeks to clear up my mind. Hopefully everything will work out as well. fingers crossed.

This person asked me out in a round about way. :P I, of course, said yes. We're currently "dating" (It's more like the old fashioned "courting" when the guy goes over to the girl's house to talk with the family and stuff) Its working out wonderfully and I'm so happy. 

I'm so glad you are feeling better! I've been wondering how things are going. Did you make your decision?

Yes, I can tell. Did you ask this person out? Did it work out? By the way, I'm feeling better now. My thoughts are clearing up a bit day by day.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. I actually wrote this about a friendship that was slowly turning into something more. Every word of it is true with deep meaning.

I love this. I wanna fall in love this way without knowing it. I like the Lucky Charms reference. I wish I had read this earlier.
