"Margo was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl." ~Paper Towns


There are nights we hide away,
Too alone, in the dark.
We smile so broadly and I lie so smoothly.
Those are the nights I feel free, unbridled –
But it's the same as a child running without shoes.
Your words could lull me into anything, but I always whisper my returns.
If only you knew the way every part of me agrees with every part of you.
We think like we are old, but our bodies and our souls are young
And we fight them from the morning until those last few moments when
we sometimes let them run, wildly
enriched by our hot breaths on our cold necks.
Your hands and my lips,
Your worries and my carelessness,
All these things come together when you touch my hair and I cup your cheek and we are gone.

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more."
~lord byron

Mmm just wanted to point out that I am the author of this poem, and I did not make the author comments. I don't know where they came from, but just saying, I don't really have such opinions about my poems.
