take my breath awayyour calloused fingerstake my breath away by crystallized-skies
wrap around the delicate frame
of my paper maché lungs
and you squeeze
until my breathes
b u r s t
from my withering lips
explosive fits of
flailing limbs come
to a stuttering halt as
your wiry grip inches further
up my trachea--
you couldn’t just stop
at my cresting clavicles and
pull poetry out of their
no you wanted
to see me gasping,
clawing at my throat and
hissing at the icy palms of winter
that trap me as my ribs
catch fire and the last traces
air trickle from my

only thing I had left
2am poetry (you're always the subject line)I wish that you were still here by my side2am poetry (you're always the subject line) by crystallized-skies
instead of nestled in between the lines of my 2am poetry
because you deserve a better home than that
your name sits fervently on my lips
because I hope that with a whisper of those 5 little letters
that I can pull you from within the inscriptions on my
tree trunk ribs like a magician
pulling a rabbit from his silken hat.
I want to feel your words breathing down my neck
and your hands pressed against my quivering spine
as I stand at the edge of indecision--
you made me fear the fight rather than the fall
and now I'm addicted to the
the feeling of your wind beneath my wings.
we were an odd couple of misfits but we fit together:
you as the harmony and I the melody of a song no one else heard;
too many times I spent playing our soundtrack on repeat
as I danced across my room spinning &&
humming in the cold shadows of my lonely nights.
I wish that you were still here by my side
instead of nestled in between the lines of my 2am poetry
because I dese
verbatimthey say opposites attract and I guess they’re rightverbatim by crystallized-skies
because I was attracted to you since the day we met
with those wild green eyes and your alluring words that made
me feel more comfortable in my own skin than
I have ever I felt in twenty years of existence,
you were a foreign taste to me that I began to crave
so insatiably that my angel became my devil’s advocate
and suddenly troubled waters turned into stormy seas
and all I remember are
the long days and hard nights
that were clouded with loud voices and
lots and lots of screaming
and tears so many tears
that i’m surprised i had
any to spare
but in the cacophony
of clashing words and late night movie dates
you were the fire to my gasoline and it became
impossible to wash your ashes from my skin
you were painted on me;
it was our own Mona Lisa except she was frowning,
frowning because one of your hands was around my waist
and the other was pointed towards the sky
So I've been sick for like the past 3 weeks (and I'm drowning in coursework ). I'm surprised I haven't coughed up my lung or my spleen yet but that's beside the point. I am alive however and I shall celebrate by doing this 80 question meme I kindly stole from That1PersonYouForgot. Shall we get on with this journey of procrastinating?
1. What does your deviantART name mean and why?
That's complicated. I wanted something that represented me. And other than my name being Crystal, I liked the idea of crystals and how they fracture because as a person I don't see myself as whole but just a menagerie of pieces. And I've always loved the skies and the treasures they hold so I threw that in there too. Idk if that's much of an answer. I just really like this name now.
2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
I was a die hard Vampire Knight fan and then I really got into Hetalia after I joined but as of now I'm not really into any fandoms anymore. Ain't nobody got time for that. xD

7. What is your most popular submission?
EnglandXReader: Lessons In LoveLights flashed. Blue. Purple. Green.
The room wavered as the lights danced on the walls. The music beat against The blonde's ears as he made his way deeper into the sea of people. The people felt like they were closing in, swallowing him in their rhythmic dancing and pulsing auras.
It was a different experience for Arthur, being in the thick of the crowd. When Alfred or Francis even managed to get him into a place like this he usually stuck to the outskirts of the dance floor, he preferred his space out there. Often times he kept to the shadows, standing along the walls. There it was secluded, and quiet (despite the raring music) and he could actually think there. Besides, most of the tables stood alone, away from the crowd, making for an easy escape when he got bored. Tonight, however, was different. He had caught a glimpse of something. He had seen something that he hadn't expected to ever see there, something that had become the
NakedI want you to look at me naked
No, I don’t mean in the comfort
of your bedroom twisted amongst silk sheets
as I lay beneath your looming figure
I mean look at me
in my flesh
in my barest form
parading my flaws
as if they are my trophies.
I want you to look at
this 5’5 frame of fragile bone
and pleasantly plump baggage
and see not the way
my hips curve underneath tightly
stretched skin or
the way my thighs touch in jeans that
hide my full waist,
instead I want you to
notice the way
my dimples curve like half full moons or
the way I bob my head to the
beat of my favorite song.
I want you to notice
the way my shoulders are
always hunched over as if
my body is always asking a question
and the way my eyes dart skittishly
over the cracks in the pavement
because I'd rather notice
the weeds beneath my feet
than the perfect
that passed me by.
I want you to look at
my petite hands and the chipped polish
that covers my nails and watch as they run
