Dreams

I watched the midnight sun in I awe. Nature still surprises me-- I don’t plan on returning the look in Stephen’s eyes is all I see. I am content that I no longer can sleep for if I could my dreams of him would constantly shatter me, I have finally succeeded in him hating me the amount of time he said it, no I take that back cursed at me to leave I could’ve have killed him if I didn’t throw him onto the bed I had no choice. All I see now is the blood the smell of his blood and feeling my frenzied state warming then building and in that moment I had to make the impulsive choice. I stood up and looked out at the horizon then I screamed loudly begging my Grandmother to come to me I need her help.
"Grandma I need you please help me I cannot live like this anymore." I collapsed on the damp grass and cried then I felt her warm hands on my shoulder I looked up she softly tells me she’s here now.

"I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud"

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed---and gazed---but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Hours Of Darkness

I sat staring until dawn approached the red sun looks like a big gigantic ball of fire that spread its flames across the grayish sky; moments like this makes me feel human watching the fascination of this alluring beauty of nature but being a Vampire these things look different in our eyes it almost seem like everything that we see is High Definition— more vivid.

Apologies

"I am sorry –I know that I have said this time and time again but I can now be honest to you that I have always been scared the moment I looked at you when we were partnered up in High School. Everything that I thought I was sure about made no sense to me all that immersed me was you it has always been you and I used my Grandmother death as a crutch and then when I became a Vampire. Stephen I can't live without you so please tell me that I have the slightest chance to gain back your love—give me the opportunity to make right all the wrong's I have done to you—please just please baby let me pick up the pieces of your broken heart."
