Woes For The LoverI tend to fall in love so easily with everyone I see. The way you people move, the way you talk, the mystique of your existence intoxicates me...There isn't a night that goes by where don't I think about making sweet tender love to the person next to me.Woes For The Lover by HardlySleeping
Yet in here lies my predicament. I'll take you home, I'll drink you in; I'll plunge deep inside, exploring all your secret hopes and dreams....but in the end, it's only a taste. The sun rises on the next day and the hangover takes affect. I wake up alone, you leave with temporary enlightenment already fading into the back of your mind... And we're alone again.

I would give you everything.
I wouldn't settle for anything less than excellence,
Grinding these brittle bones to dust
If only for your happiness.
I would give you spring in winter,
Vases upon vases of rich exotic flowers-
Surrounding you with the beauty I know you deserve.
I would write you letters everyday,
Reminding you of your complete perfection
And my undying love-
With only the richest of red ink.
I would build your dream house,
Layering brick upon brick
And Plank upon plank
Blistering these fingers,
And relishing in the hollow pain
Knowing that I had made you smile.
I would capture the stars
I would lasso the moon
I would give you the world
If only I were him.
Confusion She screamed when I showed her the face I'd torn off the man she loved. This wasn't who she married, this was a jackal. This was a man who had been unfaithful, who had gambled her money away- who had stood to call her a "bitch" to her face in front of her friends and family... So why was she so upset?Confusion by HardlySleeping
I let it fall, the flesh landing with a sickeningly wet splash and stepped back. I was the hero. I was the solution she'd prayed for- all those nights hiding in her bedroom closet, clutching the tainted wedding ring in her fingers. I was the last resort after all those trips to the police station...So why was she running to the phone?
I'd come to save her from the beer guzzling monster she'd so desperately tried to escape. I'd come to love her the way she always wanted. I'd come to be the man she longed for and now that I'd freed her, she wanted me gone.
I....refused to disappear.
