Till the pain of loneliness is gone 
Lie with me, say that it's not wrong.
You fever for more than my skin alone,
So I'll sing you one of my nonsense songs.

Gently I sweep your hair from your eyes;
It falls like dark waves and shadows your brow.
For you I'd be strong, but tonight we've shed lies,
Shed pretensions, dropped our masks after our bow.

I swear by this moment to keep my arms 'round you tight,
If you swear by something sacred to do the same.
You don't have to fear, I won't leave you in the night. 
(I wonder, when you're old, will you remember my name?)

No one really hears my aching soul the way you do.
Why must the dawn break and the night have to fall?
There are no words as to why it breaks my heart in two;
With my empathetic lenses, keen and dark, so does it all.
If you will only say to me, with all honesty, "Please stay,"
We'll see hope need not shatter with the morning sun.
Help me take this life day by day --
For lives nearly gone need something dearly to be won.

I'll stay with you past the break of dawn,
And come back to you anon,
Each night, forever, ever on,
And ever, ever on.
Lady Day by TheLunaLily
Lady Day
Billie Holiday.… Link to her song "The Way You Look Tonight."

" Someday, when I'm awfully low,
when the world is cold,
I will feel aglow
just thinking of you
and the way you look tonight."
No ears to hear
Nor eyes to see,
No more fear
Or empathy. 

The world's gone quiet,
Blissful, dark and still;
Bones to ash, this is it:
Forget me like a moment's thrill.
You danced naked in the dark to Mystery
And found Jesus hitching on the highway.
You found another self across the Wild Sea,

(Nearly Discipline, if not for your attention span)

And Peace from Eastern Philosophy.
From a looking glass you were Born Again;
And found Fortune in the bottom of a cup of tea.

You wore Religion like Fashion when it was the trend,
Collecting Faith, never Wisdom, you see?

You bet your Future on a game of cards,
Threw it all away when it got too hard,
And where I won, you lost when you left me.
Found and Lost
"You wore Religion like Fashion when it was the trend."

Personal Quote: "Know thyself."
"Loving in hindsight is loving too late."
I have not been here all winter. To those of you who still know who I am, I guess all I can say is that it's a hell of thing to be remembered, so thank you. To my friends who care about me, I care about you too, and even though I was gone I still thought about you and missed you. You are the reasons that I came back. I do not know how frequently I will be here, or when I will post anything new. I don't know how long it will take me to respond to your comments, though I have read them. 
 Let me just thank everyone for their kindness, for reading and writing back, because it is always appreciated. 
Also, I'm very thankful for the DLD I received while I was away for "Addicted to Heroines", that was a wonderful surprise.  

In conclusion:
Cindi, you are an angel. Sweet Dee, you are a doll. Rachel, I love you lady. Jess, you are lovely. LJ, you have the biggest heart. David, you have always been so supportive. Jen, you are wonderful. Frantz, a poet, photographer and a gentleman. CJ, you are a good friend who gave me a sunrise to watch even in the dark of night. Kayla you are an inspiring poet. JoJo, I love you, keep kicking ass, girl. (God knows I left out so many names and I'm incredibly sorry. It was shaping up to be a very very long list. But seriously, you know who you are and how I feel about you, don't you? Yeah, you do.) :heart:
I've missed you guys.

That is one of the sweetest thing anyone has ever said. Thank you Ava! You have been a good friend to me and an inspiration as well and I'm sorry if I don't say it as much and for not replying sooner, but I have not been on DA in months. Sharing work and being social is hard sometimes though not for lack of loving you and the rest of my dear friends that I have made here. 
I hope all is well in your part of the world. I am sending you many hugs! :heart:
