Still can't see the top.
What point is there in trying?
But something keeps me hoping.
To fall down
So there's no need to frown.
Made it farther
Than I thought
Can't just let my spirit rot.
Too much hope
Too much at stake
Only one real choice to make.
And someday I'll see the top.
Whistle BlowerDive into the void of endless spaceWhistle Blower5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I leave no path for you to trace
It’s not because I don’t want you here
I just don’t need something else to fear
I’m not afraid that you’ll sell my soul
Or attempt to reach some other goal
This is burning a hole through my heart
Should I say what’s tearing me apart?
I’ve made my choice, but I won’t tell you
For fear of what you can do
A whistle blower would mean my end
For I would have no way to defend
Dark CloudsIf it weren’t for the thick black smokeDark Clouds6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We would have seen what lit the flame
Behind clouds you slit your own throat
The poison in your vanes’ to blame.
Darkness slipping through the cracks,
Flaws of what was once perfect.
Illness in shadow, led the attacks
Making sure the blade fit…
Softly in the hands I held…
Imagined ‘til the end of days.
Could it be a dream from hell?
Still wishing I would wake.

Another step back
Timid and shadowed
You hide in the cracks
The ugly world bites you
It hurts you, it lies
Pouring vitriol in
Through your innocent eyes
I won't try to "mend" you
You don't have to change
You don't have to hurry
Or prove you're okay
A baby-step forwards
And into the light
I'm waiting, I'm here
I can wait all my life
Lost at SeaHow can so many mean so much to meLost at Sea9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And still mean so little to most
I'm drowning, I'm drowning my tears form a sea
Please help as I search for the coast
The words they are saying are cutting in deep
My cards only showing dark fate
Those closest to me, they forced me to leap
My love was returned with strong hate
I'm yearning for someone to show me the way
Will no one reach out their hand?
I'm drifting, I'm drifting further away
Never again to see land
To Fight for FreedomSociety can no longer oppress meTo Fight for Freedom9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For it is my will and right
To become boundless and free
An anomaly within their judgmental eyes
Alienated from the rest of the race
But only I can see through Society's lies
This freedom they promise to give
But They use this to chain and bind us
Living under them, do we truly ever live?
Stereotyped into what we become known as
Not wanting to see what is really inside
And revealing the treasure that each of us has
Hurting us, and making us turn to despair
Falling into what they consider depravity
But we will fight back, to our true freedoms we swear
Because through these awry perceptions
We have found the solution to these wrongdoings
We shall fight back, even if the strings of our freedom
Are to wind back around our necks

None left to shed
We are done
Broken head to toe
We no longer stand
Please let go
Take my hand
Cut our ties
So we may soar
Forget all worries
Forget all cares
End the pain
A leap of faith
The skies or the abyss
Where shall we sail
We'll never know
There are no tales
Your wounds open
Slashed with steel
I know you're hurt
But they will heal
Don't end it now
A few years down
You'll look back and say
I'm glad I stayed
Even for her
For you will be happy one day

The day that I fear
Is whitin our reach
for you sweet as a peach
But a sour bite of reality for me
I have admired you from far
Like the nights brightest star
I always thought you were near
But now to me it's clear
You aren't as close as I see
Your shine fooled me over time
Made me think that you're mine
But my love, my friend
I don't want it to end
I always want to be near you
We were together at any cost
But now, your love for me is lost
Behind his smile
Gone for a long mile
Your new love has left me blue

Du kannst es auch schon nicht mehr hören,
daß mich bei Superbilligware
die „Produktionsmethoden“ stören.
schlechter oder gar kein Lohn,
Sklavenhaltung, Krankheit, Hunger...
Was red‘ ich denn, Du weißt’s ja schon.
In letzter Zeit hab‘ ich oft Träume,
(die sind echt niemand zuzumuten),
in denen Dinge die ich kaufe,
bei Berührung schrei’n und bluten.
Ja klar, es gibt auch ‚gute‘ Ware.
Fair Trade kennen wohl die meisten.
Nur kann ich mir von meiner Kohle
so teure Dinge schlicht nicht leisten.
Was? Mein Traum? Der geht noch weiter:
Ich komm dann nicht mehr von der Stelle,
das Blut steigt langsam immer höher
und dann kommt die erste Welle.
Man hört auch ständig wieder Neues,
wird aufgeklärt und informiert,
nur, dass es halt die meisten Menschen
so überhaupt nicht int‘ressiert.

Was carved into our bracelets. Friendship bracelets.
But not the typical ones. Made of silver like it'd be something special.
I still have mine. Somewhere in my bookshelf. Don't wanna know where it is.
It lost its meaning anyway.
Once it had a shiny surface. So much time passed.
When I was younger I couldn't imagine it'd ever come this way.
I can't think back and smile. Everything that happened is grey.
Even the good things.
I looked at this pretty wristlet now and then.
Last year I still thought I'd definitely have to clean it.
It's dirty with scrapes.
But it wouldn't change a thing. It looks like our friendship,
Which is none. I try to think back to the time everything was alright.
But guess what...It never existed.
All in my head. Just in my head.
I had too much fantasy, only thought about the positive.
Didn't dare to look any further.
I see this bracelet now and then.
And to be honest, I'd like to throw it away, destroy it, g

Looking at you makes my eyes sore.
You've hurt me long enough,
I packed up all your stuff.
You left saying I'm to blame,
But you're the one who put out the flame.
I threw out our bed,
Been crashing on the couch instead.
I donated all the things you left behind.
Seeing it all was making me lose my mind.
I try to forget you and the things you said,
But it's so hard to get out of my head.
I haven't eaten in a week and 3 days,
I feel like a corpse unable to decay.
It's hurts the most, that you'd promise to never leave.
Stupid of me to even believe.
You never loved me and you never will.
I thought it was our mistakes you wanted to kill.
But it was me, you wanted me to die,
That is why you left my side.
I wish you felt the pain I experienced that night,
You wouldn't have gotten mad and started that fight.
The bruises you left, the bloody nose
The words you spoke, the punches you'd throw.
After all that, I don't understand why I still loved you,
After all you put me thro

When you're the one who started the war
You say you're done, so
What are you still fighting for?
You're so worried to be right,
You don't realize that you're wrong,
But you aren't letting us help you.
Why are you carrying this on for so long?
We have tried and tried to help you, and
There's many people that still do.
But I can tell you one thing,
I am done helping you.

When morning sky rejects the sun
With icy spite and scorn?
Will roosters cry up at the sky
Will darkness reign instead
When all my heart in ruin lies
In fragments cold and dead?

Is it just my mind?
I keep hearing this constant buzz..
Why is it happening?
I don't see the dentist,
yet I hear the drill..
I see my friend hugging me,
yet it feels as though her body is a wall.
I feel no warmth at all..
Why am I here?
Why am I just sitting down?
Why am I just a ghost?
Was I truly nothing..

Did they really mean nothing?
Do you really want to hide me from everyone?
What am I gonna be for you?!
Just a fucking ghost?
Why does this hurt so bad?
This feeling of impenetrable loneliness,
this darkness that surrounds me everyday!
Didn't you understand the love I felt for you?
Didn't you understand how long I wanted us to mean something...
It means nothing!
Everything we ever were is nothing!

Right before I see you, my heart races.
When you unexpectedly touch me, my heart skips a beat.
When you smile, I feel light on my feet.
When you kiss me, the world freezes.
This all happens when you are involved, but the best thing is...
When you say, "I love you," at that moment, I die.
