"You know what it feels like when all your teeth are falling out really slowly and you don't realize and then you notice that, well, they're really far apart. And then one day... you don't have any teeth anymore." - Where the Wild Things Are

You could be the death of me,

although that is quite alright,

for you see the key to my heart,
doubles as a knife

for all my feeble words and such would be trite,
if I too did not bet on them, my life.


You are my flaw,
the hole in my armor where your love dwells,
by my breast to keep my love in thaw,
while the rest of me becomes subject to freezing spells.

Out of my scars I made you a nest,
and the home you found
in the heat in my chest,
ensured I would always be around

when you need me best.
I am there, a wandering giant,
always moving, never at rest,
yet ever reliant

for you, I shall never cease
the one constant, to my many caprice

I loved this! I can really relate to the turmoil of emotions that you're undergoing. Great job!:)

I really like this it makes you think a lot about relationships, my favorite line is, "for you see the key to my heart, doubles as a knife" theres no better way to describe that =)

Life is a maybe. Death is for sure. Sin is the cause. Christ is the cure. :)

Love is the breath of God, and prayer is the melody that makes it sing.

If you cant annoy someone, there's no point in writing.

Love is overrated, marry for money.

oh wow! WHen I first read the title I was not very interested, but I read it anyway. Now I'm glad I did! Because this is really great! I love the concept,and the way everything rhymed. It was simply marvalous,darling. lol 5/5 stars!
