Write a poem or story based on this line.
“You were the only reason, the only reason at all. You were my peace, and now I feel like I can’t even think.. I can’t even breathe..” I said to him with tears rolling down my face.
“You knew how things were, you knew.. I don’t know what else to say..” He said back to me.
“Yeah, I did know. But knowing and being blindsided by it happening and it actually becoming more real, more permanent… it’...
You were the only reason, the only reason at all
The only one that kept me from drowning in my flaws
You talked me up, you tore me down
You built my throne, then took my crown
You stomped on my heart again and again
After saying I’m funny and that I’m your best friend
Well, hun, I guess I’m not, not anymore
Not after you verbally knocked me to the floor
I’m done with you, I hope you know that
My heart pounded in my chest as I came face to face with ‘the one’.
Yes, he was the one who was going to make all my dreams come true, he was the one to make me happy... The one who I wanted to spend eternity with...
Those beautiful, sparkling blue eyes focused on me as I called out to him.
“H-hey, Nils! Have you got a minute? I-I have something I need to tell you!”
Honestly, I couldn’t believe ...
Tanya stood atop the narrow roof, silhouetted against the half moon which hung in the sky. Facing her was the figure that she had been chasing for the last week. The figure who had framed her. The figure that looked too familiar, even under the hood.
“Who are you?” Tanya asked.
The woman across from her laughed, “What? You don’t even recognize me?” She spoke with a district British accen...
Every day, I wake in excitement to see you.
Every week, I create new memories with you.
Every month, we grow together as one.
Every year, we celebrate our love.
Just one year, you left me.
Every day, I wake with bitter truth.
Every week, I regret missed opportunities.
Every month, I realize how far we’ve fallen apart.
Every year, only reminds me of what I’ve lost.
I’ve lost my spirit.
Straw-Hat Vampire Slayer; vengeance is mine
Oliver stumbled down the city streets, struggling to keep his head up under the weight of his intoxication. It was the heat of summertime and sweat dripped down his brow, burning his eyes. They watered both from the sting and an overwhelming swell of feelings brought on by the liquor. Steadying himself he pulled his hat down low over his face, trying to hide his shame. He had missed her funeral in...
You were the reason! The only reason at all! The only person with the power to make me feel utterly useless. You are perfect and every thing every one wants to be. I'm the one you've chosen to clean the messes you make but for once I can't. This is my life! I'm scared to say this but it's what I need. I know now you're mad but now, now I have to go. ...
You stared at me, silent. Glowing blue, beckoning. I had something far more important to accomplish, but the draw was still there. The same from years ago. The power you would bestow on me. I’d be king, as I was promised. I’d make Father proud. The only reason to take you away....
Stranger in the Coffee Shop
I pull my hood over my head, rushing past the city goers. This is completely humiliating, how could I be so stupid. I can’t get that image out of my head and I can’t tell if this water sliding down my cheeks is from the rain or my tears. I make my way to my favourite coffee shop, the only place in New York City so far that has felt like home to me. It’s always warm and comforting and the waitress ...
