    I’ve slept twelve hours, but I don’t hear the clock Its hand slowly moves around the face I’m in a huddled mass under clean linen sheets But I feel no warmth from them or smell the spring breeze The last time I ate Was it a day? Maybe a week But the thought of consumption Leaves me ...

    In the darkest night on the darkest hill The wolf’s bane woke her up from sleep The mistress of the house felt the icy chill The sound she knew so well, plunged her into the deep She wore no shackles to keep her there Outside, the world, was dark but she was forbidden To leave into th...

    On the corner of our city’s streets In the heart where we used to meet The road says “Love” and the other says “Hate” I read the signs but it was too late The wishing well rose from the ground Bringing wishers and hopers from all around They tossed their coins and made a wish...

    Quietly you creep Into your wildest dreams Fantasies unfurl their tenuous wings And you sink into a slumber Wake up, you’re dreaming into flames Wake up, your dreams can always become too real But then you find and you feel You can’t wake up in time Or run from the lurking thoughts W...

    You eat your words I’ll eat mine You serve your time, I’ll walk the line You do whatever I’m just fine You gave up and I’ve run out of time Your chances came and they all went My love was precious but you had it spent Gave up on me on the halfway mark Well I paid a price and i...

    Its time I disappear This place which held my fear And all the breaking pain I just can’t bear a second more Will you remember me? As I used to be Will you still hear my voice? And forgive me of this choice? Please, let me go Its time I left this place for good I should have gone ...

    “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” At midnight on June 15, 2011, I lined up in costume, as well as a plethora of other Harry Potter fanatics (Used in the best sense of the word here). When the lights dimmed and the movie started there was an excited buzz electrifying the air, girls sque...
