ToysI am an old toy, I was newToys12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You used to play with me and keep me company
Now I rarely see you
I saw you everyday and we would have fun
Now I see you smile with new toys
You are leaving me behind
Am I broken? Maybe there are scars I cannot see?
Is that why you threw me away, into a place you never go
I am not perfect, I have scars inside and out
Is that why you don't want me?
Was I not a good friend?
I tried to be there for you when you cried
Maybe I was just not good enough
Maybe, now I am too old, you just can't play with me anymore
It would be wrong, correct?
No one wants to play with old things
So, I will just sit here
In my corner, until you want me again

Blissfully unaware to
What I have become.
What I soon will be
Before this year at last
Comes to its demise.
Just a hollow shell;
Just a walking skeleton
But none of them know.
Thank goodness for that—
For if they choose to visit
They will find a corpse.
Damn my negligence
And damn all of my misdeeds.
Just knock me down now.
Knock me when I’m weak.
As you demons like to do.
Knock me to the ground.
Make sure that this is
The last thing you see from me.
Before you rise up.
Rise up and riot.
Until all I have left dies.
Show me your hatred.

This is Blitzen calling for the world to hear
It seems like Santa won't be making the trip this year
But you'll still get your gifts, of that you don't need to have fear
Now you may be asking, what's causing this delay
Well that's where Mrs. Claus Comes into play
Every year he makes the trip and at home she stays
So this year she changed things up, yesterday she wore Santa's favorite outfit
And laid on their bed
she called for her husband like she was trying to raise the dead
He came into the room and with a great surprise
She was wet and willing with a lusty look in her eyes,
She jumped on her man as if she were insane
and began slurping on his candy cane
So sorry people of earth, especially kids with frowns
But some pretty nasty stuff is going down
So don't worry kids when Santa gets out of bed
he'll bring all the presents so don't you fret!

between the two,
which would be best for you?
If I could use the power of sacrifice,
your life may be spared, seems it would suffice.
I could keep you alive, yet all would be dead..
in the snow chilling them into contempt.
But if loss could give me the chance,
to extinguish the pained romance,
to bind what needs to mend,
would be what I do if I was a true friend...
But your life is precious,
no matter the scars or wounds,
that others inflict on you.
Your heart maybe be broken,
but your mind has awoken.
Your skin might have scars run deep,
but your soul still beats and sings,
leaving little time to weep.
Anger fills my spirit,
my heart swells with love.
My mind clouds with vulgar words,
but care blows it away.
I want to help,
Take my hand.
I want to protect,
stand behind me.
I want to save your mind,
let me have your pain.
I want to mend your heart,
can I put it together?
The bleeding must stop,
Here's a tourniquet.
The skin must heal,
alcohol and bandages are here!
Dear FriendWhat would you do if they said I was dead?Dear Friend7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'd fall to the ground
and bury my head
What would you do if I said I would leave?
I'd rip out the heart
I no longer need
What would you do if I went out with a gun?
Cry at your grave
and miss you a ton
What would you do if you found my body strung high?
I would mourn quietly
and feel myself die
Why would you mourn me so greatly when dead?
Because of pinky promises,
dear friends 'till the end

Before our love leaves it's prime
Let me tell you how much you mean to me
And that what once was, can still be
You are what has guided me through all of my pain
The one light in my life, that has kept me sane
You have shown me love and joy
And made me feel like a man, though I am just a stupid boy
You defended my name
And never let me take any blame
Even from hundreds of miles apart
You always nourished my heart
Your beauty is more vast than all of creation
And your love has always been my salvation
You found me alone and with a bandaged wrist
But you loved my scars, and gave me a reason to exist
You have kept me alive through all of this
And have made my world more beautiful, with every single kiss
My demands were cruel, and I showed you no appreciation
You stayed by my side, through every insane accusation.
I was a fool to neglect the one treasure in my life
And I am to blame for all of this strife
You are perfect to me, in every single way
What I WantMy skies aren't limitless,What I Want2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
these mountains don't echo,
I don't smell the roses,
the grass is no longer my pillow..
Is it the goodbyes that I miss?
Or the hellos I will never say?
Is it the end of a long journey?
Or the fear of going a new way?
The numbness may seem overpowering..
But I still wish to feel .
If the buds too are flowering,
Then maybe I too can heal..
It is not fame nor fortune
Nor love nor company that I crave.
It is that courage to believe
that life may go my way
So don't bless me with riches,
It is not what I seek.
Pray that I find the means
To end my disturbed sleep.

Eyes as deep as the ocean
A soul to inspire
The craziest of notions
That my demons can be silenced
By the sweetest of voices
That sings like the sirens
To all the wrong choices
Playing my heart strings
To the darkest known melodies
In time with sadder songs you sing
That will always bring me to my knees

The bed seem such a foreign place.
My mind keeps me up in all the strangest ways.
And my dreams are nothing more then games of catch and chase.
I try to find sanity as I lay and stare.
The stars doting the ceiling a mere mockery of the sky.
I simply am one that will never compare
To the solitude you find your comforts in as time passes by.
Yet I let you plague my mind,
Like a disease you creep in and take over my dreams.
Gods, you know that I have tried!
Can you even hear my desperate screams?
Peace so eluding I cannot think straight.
This bed just seems like another grave.
The mind so far gone from the crushing weight
Of the memories you so graciously gave.

You stopped me pushing all the blame onto you
And time will tell if what we said was the truth,
But now I feel alone and I don't know what to do.
She wears your clothing like the heart on your sleeve,
Not caring how much it'll hurt when she leaves
With her around there's not much room left to breathe
Yet you don't seem to care cause it's not air that you need.
She's just a rider who wants her turn to steer
She doesn't know what goes on behind the wheel
But only understands her deep need to feel
And didn't know that pain would be a part of the deal
You're the one who thought it'd all be okay
Worst case scenario: at least one would stay
They might, but now I see my chance for escape
I'll only make it out alive if I walk away.

That I can feel, but I can't touch
The exit wound's an inch out of my back
And my breath doesn't come in too much
I can't remember what you said
Can't remember what you said.
What exactly was it that you said?
A shot might take the pain away
And two might erase it all
But I was never one to drink for sorrow
Cause misery already comes when I call.
Wasn't that what she called you?
Isn't that the name she gave you?
What was the name you answered to?
I keep begging for forgiveness
For the lives that you've betrayed
I keep praying you'll come back
When I was the one who walked away
And though we're killing each other softly
I've never heard war waged so loud
We're a match made in Heaven;
It'll take Hell to bring us down.

Long after I am gone
So that I might see your shining face
In the beauty of the dawn.
Keep my name alive
Though the pull of time is strong,
And I will yet hear your quiet voice
In the chorus of a song.
Keep my name alive
And who I used to be
So that I can tell them all of you
When the past is asked of me.
You do not have to bear the flag;
You do not have to die,
But by Heaven, by Earth, by God above:
Just keep my name alive.

Lilies are white, they brighten the night, as frost comes forth.
Winter snow falls, animals cry and call "Time to sleep!" Oh child of mine.
Winter is long, it sings the same dreary song over and over each day, as the sun fails to melt the snow away. It's covered my heart, but you know springs about to start,
let the cherry blossoms bloom! Let's brighten the room and ask the bride and her groom what
does snow become, as the sun boils it away? Spring! So let the church bells ring! As nature sets forth and new life flys north! But let me listen to the griffin blues of the late night bar, with the sound of an old guitar and drink the winter blues away. Winter why do you torture me so?
