Sun And MoonYou are the Sun, shining golden in the late summer skySun And Moon by TGIBA
ablaze with strength and abundant warmth
cloaked in your humble majesty
I am the Moon, cold and calloused, dressed in rags of a once beautiful dress
when you slink past the horizon into the oblivion of your peaceful slumber
I rise, pale and wide eyed to watch you dream
For you sleep as one
unperturbed by the world and chaos
clothed incognito around you
Sometimes I catch you, between the border of reality and dreams
just before you slip into the sea
And your golden rays pierce my raw heart with a heat of such intensity
So close, i whisper in the dark
shadowed in a nocturnal winter forest
As you are lured oblivious into dreams of your soft, blissful world
I reach out with fingers of ice to touch the warmth of your soul,
yet always in the last moment at dusk you fade beyond my grasp
I am the Moon
You are the Sun
I am racing, racing to catch up
We are never to be side by side in unity
for I am the dark
you are the light
The One that got AwayYou say my name, and make it sound so beautiful,The One that got Away by TGIBA
Your summer sky blue eyes sparkle and glimmer when your mouth curves up in your sweetly lopsided smile.
Your hand swallows mine and I feel so delicate when I'm around you,
in comparison to your strength.
You hold me close, like we're the only two people in the room, and
my body fits perfectly with the curve of yours.
Your touch makes me shiver.
And I yearn to kiss you when we have to say goodbye.
But I'm too little, too late to tell you how I really feel...
Because you're my best friend. And she loves you.
Beginning of the endDo you remember the first time we kissed in the school hallway? It was on the fourth floor, after school, in the hallway by Robovsky's room; the teacher whose class brought us together. We were under the archway of the non-existant doors that were once there, my arms over your shoulders, yours around my waist. I had wanted to talk to you. Kyann, my walking buddy, went down to the girls bathroom, twenty paces from where we were, to give us privacy to talk. I told you, surrounded by the marble halls, that you had upset me the day before. I remember, I was struggling to get the words out; I didn't want to upset you by seeming clingy. You stood there, looking down into my eyes, concern and confusion reflecting back in your wide, sky blue eyes. You hadn't realized at first, what I was talking about. It was a joke you had made, to Kyann. You had said... That you were "going to break up with me". Then, according to her account, you had laughed while she sat there, slack jawed in shock.Beginning of the end by TGIBA

all dragon's breath,
birthed by flame.
When you finally said
you needed me, I was
already reborn. Ash smeared
along my face,
fire drizzling my body.
I'm not the girl you were
hoping for, darling.
Too wild for your clammy
hands to grip and sculpt,
I am blazing, igniting.
My hands house infernos, my
heart is now a hearth.
I do not need
you to keep me warm.

My skin is no longer the milky white alabaster of a flawlessly sculpted statue,
too afraid to jump out the tower she built herself because she knew she would shatter.
My skin is the soft amber of a human girl who lost her wings,
dived into the ocean,
and spent more than one too many days swimming this newfound freedom,
but more than two short of enough.
I am not your trophy, your jeweled treasure chest.
My hair is not an abundant waist-long waterfall of melted gold,
and I am not the size 0 I used to so blatantly long for.
My body is plain, unadorned.
I stand tall with my head held high.
Because I am not your one night stand.
My lips are not the soft pink of dawn,
they are the&
