    If you want, you can delete your previous one and change it, but I'd prefer if each person gave one entry (since there's a lot of entries :)

  • Blotted Ink with a Broken Quill

    What I'd give to the sky for it to pick me off the ground in gently grasping heart and take me into the stars, not bothering to carry my tarnished emotions with me.
    It would take me to the sun and I could feel warmth for once.

    What I'd give to be able to see this grotesquely beautiful world the same way again; after all the pills, appointments, and wasted time, the creative fire that burned so deep inside me was smothered by the very same person who claimed to be helping.

    what i'd give for a time machine...
    god, nobody knows
    anything - i'd give anything.
    the time machine that never was
    the time machine that never can be
    modern sciences are not so advanced
    and what's gone is gone
    but god am i crushed, wholly
    because i dream of seeing you in your element
    and looking on
    like an observer of a wild animal might
    not to speak but to make sure you were alright
    a knowing glance and two looks shared
    a continuity , a chapter , a life that could have been
    what drivel - shut up, dolly dolphin,
    but i do fall into fantasy, i know
    just as much as i often times spot somebody else's face filling in for me at the mirror
    it would be this gorgeous girl i'd send back in time
    to 1989 , or earlier, or later
    any time when i could revel in a world that i love
    any time i could breathe and inhale the same muck that has entered your cells
    like dinosaur reproduction and all is well
    god it hurts to know by the time i got around
    all the life from your cells were locked underground
    i have never known a world you walked
    that is what i'd use my time machine for
    found out you broke your foot too
    i couldnt stand but you were performing
    pretty and laughing and just being you and
    i liked that. even though i can't jump, even though my own bones terrify me,
    i like you.
    ugly girls do not get lovely men, and terrible women do not get angels. this is merely fact-yet i stare into an expanse of loneliness, hoping.
    i'd rather die alone than go after someone horrible
    but it seems everyone is vile
    all caught up in photographs and fake plastic trees
    bothering themselves with likes and clothing labels
    but i don't want that - i don't want a passionless affair.
    i want love.
    love isn't like the movies and it isn't
    like music
    i know that, i know
    but still, i deserve fantasy
    because in my world, it's 1989, or something
    and love hasn't died - people run through the streets laughing and shopping and
    glimmering - la la la
    and there's a beacon at the end of everything
    mowgli of his kingdom
    - sweet angel , my one-
    lover , the thing i've desired like nothing else
    like no one
    i'll call you by name, i will, 'cause i love you
    michael - the beacon, love in its true form
    for the gods were split down the middle to form you, dear son-
    they wanted to give us a gift that would be sure to last
    but the porcelain ruptured and then it cracked
    your innards retreated up high where they go
    and it was the day the music died
    that much i know.
    i love you in a way i've never felt about anything
    it's not simply musings of a fantasy romance , a wish,
    it's appreciation, love for your gifts
    seeing you speak shyly and slowly over a lisp
    was like being stopped in the hall and embraced with your kiss
    and i slipped my tongue into your mouth
    i would not blame those delicious teeth nor that
    tongue
    for causing your form of speech
    so why blame my own?
    only sometimes , often rarely, or colored out
    but little notes of scarring by your cheeks
    allowed me to love my own
    i imagined touching the surface
    and i would allow you to touch my skin, none of it his smooth
    i would not flinch because it would be you.
    i appreciate you and i care for you, in your absence i speak sweet of you and dream about you
    for no one like that could ever come once more
    i am not religious, not in any single way,
    but it's scary to think this is it and this
    is the way life stays
    like a time machine won't ever be invented
    i wanted to see you when i die
    and since you do it now already, i imagine there would be time slots set aside for each of the people who love you selflessly and wholly
    just one time, one hour, a one off, a goodbye
    i would kiss you and cry
    never been kissed - for you i would make the first move
    tilt my head back for you
    the two of us, lying down on the beach
    the sun sets, and as we depart
    i notice a gold glimmering within my heart
    don't look back - the machine says hello - and i love you .
    pining for a pendant - and a locket of my own creation
    locking only the best of seeds.
    the future grows,
    but not for me.

    What I'd give to be able to feel the magic of your beautiful smile just once more, for it made the thorns in my heart disappear and made the withered flowers in there bloom with life again..... I'd give anything, just to have the chance to see you for one last time, so that I could apologize for all the times I've quarrelled with you, all the times I've made you cry, and all the times I hurt your heart and left it broken in a thousand pieces, with my thoughtless words and actions.... and most of all, I want to tell you that I'm sorry for everything, and I love you.

  • Serendipity

    What I'd give to tell it like it is and give a voice to all those thoughts confined inside my head. To stop living up to everyone's expectations and break these shackles society had once clamped onto me. For them to feel all the raw pain, hurt, rage and yes, glimpses of happiness too I suppose, they have thrown at me after all this time.

  • Silver Pen

    What I would give to be able to fly, to kiss the earth goodbye and be swept up in the cutting embrace of the chillsome wind as I dive like a falcon, to float aimlessly in blessed carelessness of my surroundings and the distance from my body to the ground, to shift in the rhythms of the breeze until I am part of the dance --
    I'd just need to wear a parka and watch out for airplanes.

    What I'd give to have you back
    because I regret it
    Of course I regret it
    What I'd give for you to come back to me!
    You can't even imagine
    I know you probably hate me
    But I love you too much
    So much that I guess

    I ended up killing you

    What I’d give to be five again
    To laugh and smile for a while again

    What I’d cede to be eight again
    To be able to cry without shame again

    What I’d yield to be twelve again
    To have genuine friends who are loyal again

    You wouldn’t know and I can’t say
    Because I’ll never be five again

    Although I wish I was eight again
    I have been hurt time and again

    I will never ever be twelve again
    That joyous self has been slaughtered by men

    But

    If I could ever be five again
    Or eight or twelve, and free again

    What would I give - I’d give everything
    I’d give everything to love life again

    What I'd give to be okay, to not constantly feel the need to scream or to cry, to not feel broken, what I'd give to press restart, to do everything differently, to not have a war raging inside me, thoughts attacking me from every which way, what I'd give to be okay

    What I'd give to disappear into the abyss

    What I'd give to be anywhere other than is
    Somewhere where my demons can't find me
    Somewhere where I can be anything I want to be
    Somewhere so much simpler than here
    Where their voices won't hurt my ear
    Every time they go there
    I won't bear
    It. I'll crawl away
    Oh yay
    I'll crawl away
    I won't bear
    It. Every time they go there
    Where their voices won't hurt my ear
    Somewhere so much simpler than here
    Somewhere where I can be anything I want to be
    Somewhere where my demons can't find me
    What I'd give to be anywhere other than this

    What I'd give to disappear into the abyss

    What I'd give to fly the sky,
    What I'd give to swim the sea,
    What I'd give to not be shy,
    I do not know, I cannot say;

    What I'd give to save the earth,
    What I'd give to light the stars,
    What I'd give to know my worth,
    I do not know, I cannot say —

    For who can know how lone hearts long,
    For who can know the size of souls,
    For who can know a silent song:
    I do not know, I cannot say.
