• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

The Last Time

Gardevoir Girl

^Don't call me that
It’s the story that should never be told,
The voice that should never be heard;
It’s the minutes and the hours ticking by,
The breath carrying a person’s last word.

It’s the moment that the pain strikes hard,
The tears that fall at time’s relentless tread;
It’s the glance thrown at a sleeping lover,
The empty space beside them in bed.

It’s the last time you see your childhood school,
Your locker’s broken shelves and shattered door;
It’s the hand-stitched shirt lying in your hands,
The crumpled birthday gift you never wore.

It’s the song that has always made you cry,
The one you choose for some future date;
It’s every silent promise that you make
In loving gazes given to your soulmate.

It’s the last time your lover holds your hand,
Cradling it against their shaking chest;
It’s the silent smile you force yourself to give,
The whispered reassurance that this is best.

It’s the breath slipping out between still lips,
The last feeble beat of a dying heart;
It’s the flowers in the vase beside your head,
Their petals drooping, fluttering apart…
