Describe a moment in life which seems to last forever.
You could write this as a poem or story, or as a descriptive paragraph.
In that suspended moment,
when our lips met for the first time,
the world around us faded away,
and all that remained were the two of us,
in a universe of our own making.
The air grew still, heavy with anticipation,
as our breaths intertwined,
forming a delicate dance of desire.
Time ceased to exist,
as we embarked on a journey,
where seconds felt like eternities.
I felt the warmth of your touch...
I never thought that Davian actually meant that for New Years Eve we’d be sitting on my roof.
But here we are, sprawled on a picnic blanket staring up at the starry sky. I twist my head to look at Davian, he’s laying with his hands on his chest, his eyes lingering on the dark night.
“Davian?” I ask, turning to my side.
Davian tilts his head my way, his night eyes meeting mine. “What’s up?”
Love is a powerful feeling,
It keeps you alive,
Helps you to keep on breathing.
Love is only temporary,
But it seems to last forever,
Even if it turns into just a memory.
The moment you fall in love,
It feels as though you can conquer anything.
You can never get enough.
None of us are made to live eternally,
However, love seems to go on forever.
It may feel painful sometimes,
But it can also se...
Time moves on. No one will truly know the loss I have felt, for we all experience loss, but never the same. Those older than me have felt more, but we share this emotion.
Ever since we are born, we have felt loss.
Being born made us lose the purity inside all of us. Before we are born we are both nothing, and everything, we have felt no loss. But that’s ok, because we’re human, and no on...
I bump into you and gaze into your eyes
You say you know me and ask if I want coffee
We go and talk on the way
Since he’s been so caught up on work
it’s the best he’s felt in days
We get sit and exchange numbers
And set up another meet up
We know each other very well
And have become best friends
For everyone to tell
Since I don’t feel sane without h...
The tidal wave crash of reality
A dolly zoom in real time
Burning sweat of laughing onlookers
Stand waving banners inside my head.
How did I get here?
And why can I not escape?
Every bead of sweat, every line on my brow,
I drown in my insecurities,
The things I had prided myself on all seem so
Embarassing, silly, childish.
The frozen moment slowly restarts,
But my head - my heart - doesn’t follow...
In a dream
In the montana air through the window
The world so big
But the most important thing that ever happend to me was from another
Sobbing, crying out in pain
My companions six
Felice was her name
My prayers unwavering
My prayers for my felice
He comes in a dream
God comes to me
And as I walk away
You made it to the bottom of that canyon.
All by yourself.
An impressive feat for a fourth grader with no hiking boots or a walking stick. Maybe what you did was stupid. Your mother thought it was at least. But for some reason, you didn’t care in the slightest.
The adrenaline pumped through your veins, and you didn’t even feel tired. You didn’t about anything. Suddenly, the future, past, all of...
