A Poem by Giullia King

"Come on!" 
Said the boy with the gorgeous looks and devilish smile.
"What could possibly go wrong?" 
- Everythingshe thought. 
"Nothing" she blurted out, and went lost into her own world. 
"I've been trying to hold onto days," he said, "because sometimes the nights get too dark for me,
So," he said, once again, "come with me."
He was a living, breathing, dangerous poetry.
He was the only one that could rip my heart out of my beating chest and ignite a spark.
Then a flame.

We were the constellations, 
The stars that shine so brightly,
The moonlit sky in the darkest of nights. 
Not knowing what this dark night had to offer, 
She took his hand and felt the storm within her suddenly go quiet.

Not my best piece. Just some words I had to get out of my head. Will edit it more in the future. x

That picture fits the poem magnificently. I like the idea that she takes a chance on the unknown while knowing very well it could end up as a disaster.

There is something quite magical in all of your writings.. It draws me in. And I believe we both share the same love for stars and the sky..
"He was a living, breathing, dangerous poetry."
This line is simply beautiful and haunting.
You are capable of a lot and one day I hope I become as good as you are..

He was the only one that could rip my heart out of my beating chest and ignite a spark.
Then a flame.

mmmmm before we know it we are walking the path of darkness, towards the edge of destruction is feels like , the storms waiting to unleash its fury on us, but we walk as if under the spells of the stars calling us to go on walk rite into the eye of the storm.... :)

i really liked this one ..

I thought this was a great piece! The fact that she knew everything could possibly go wrong and still took that leap of faith with him is what makes love beautiful!
