Of stone and sweat
Loftily held together
By thousand of memories.
Within my stone stock-hold
Held some piece of me
And I hoped
It would hold you too,
That it would embrace you
And you would see the beauty
To be found in its stony arms
Cracks and crevices.
And though try as I am
This isn't what you see
What your willing to believe.
All you see are stone walls
Surrounding an empty place
Blocking your view of the sea.
I built a house
Of stone and sweat
To hold you close to me,
Meant to be a home
For our hearts with windows
So we could always
View our sea.
But instead I built walls
And a house of stone and sweat
To build you a home.

The Wasteland Of Your YouthListen to the words that rest easiest in your heartThe Wasteland Of Your Youth4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
‘A boy is coming that will change everything
With seven shades of emerald green in his eyes
One kiss from his lips will end your suffering
And he’ll wake you with a whisper from this nightmare
Prising the hands of hindsight from around your throat
While endeavouring to burst these unwanted thought bubbles
Before they have even had a chance to float
He’ll help you prick them with his narcolpetic needle
So you can fall back in to the limbo of your dreams
Where each lake of loathing can lead to endless love
But only through a passage of patience upstream
Take caution though as the resistance of the current
Is akin to the resistance he feels from you
To open those brown eyes that you’ve hidden so safely
Behind the flooded wasteland of your youth

The words rise like angels
but do not fall like sleet
They thud to my heart's tune
mocking its beat
and singing songs of heartbreak
yet to be reaped.

How can you love a mind,
won't it lose it's sanity?
These words I say will fade away,
This body will grow old
like a tree in the cold.
Only then I will know
if you really are in love.

Once you strip away the smiles
Strip away clothes
Strip away the make up
All the material things
When you strip away the computer
Strip away the online persona
Strip away the user name
Strip away everything online
When it is you yourself
Your true self
And no one else
When you face yourself
Face up to everything you`ve done
All the pain, hurt, strife, happiness, joy caused
When in the end
We all have to pay for our parts
When there is no one left
But yourself and you`re
what`s left then?

Fumbling over old tombstones and reading the names
of long past lovers, and playing old games.
the wind sings so softly to me in my mind,
but the trouble with me is what I can't find.
I misplaced the place in the dark where we sat,
on the hill overlooking, and the lake before that.
You were always the one to know where we were,
Everything now is a clip or a blur.
I still hear you dying, and the sound is slowly killing me.
A simple step away, with this rope and this tree.
I'll see you soon my love.

There you were,
Running away from your problems,
Carrying the burden of shame on your shoulders,
But you knew that you couldn't outrun your shame,
So you stopped,
Thinking that this is a good time to cry,
You went on your knees,
Letting out all of those hidden emotions,
Why am I burdened this way,
I'm sorry for what I have done,
Your mind went blank,
You heard a gun shot,
Your whole world went black,
As your head hit the ground with a loud,

I lay down in delightful bliss.
Everyone else lies around me
As I descend into the abyss.
The fall was short,
Or so I was told.
It's so hot down here,
Or maybe it's too cold.
The demons and devils around me,
Wear a smile on their bloody faces.
I take a look around the gallery,
The drawings that everyone erases.
The artists paint
With the blood of the lambs,
And the singers scream
To the crowds of the damned.
The people around me giggle,
At some secret they're absorbed in.
But when I ask what it is,
They tell me, "It's not important."
This place where I reside
Is often called a heaven,
By those around me,
My friends, the Seven.
I was told to wait for the call,
From the phone that will never ring.
Maybe it doesn't ring because
Someone cut the string.
"Why did they do this to me?"
I whisper quietly into my last breath.
The room I'm in is so dark,
As I witness my own death.
I want to relinquish this mask,
And reveal to myself the surprise.
But I can never remove my f

And just when i've needed you around
The heart that was here when you up and left
Let a new love beat me to the ground
He let her walk in and told me to care
About this woman so fair and so true
Oh black heart of mine if you were here
I'm sure you'd know what to do
Oh black heart of mine why did you leave
Just when I needed you my friend
You were suppose to be here to watch over me
And make sure I didn't get hurt again
This love that the other heart let me have
Turned out it wasn't so true
She couldn't commit less give a shit
Oh black hear what should I do
Oh black heart of mine oh please come back
And make all this pain dissapear
I don't want it to hurt I know all your worth
It was losing you that I feared
You wouldn't have let me fall in love with her
Let alone so easily
Oh black heart of mine please come back
And set this poor boy free

CrushEven before I see your faceCrush6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My heart begins to run at a faster pace.
When this friendship became more
I’m not exactly sure,
But now RomCom fantasies of you and me fill my dreams,
And my eyes have a special gleam.
Sometimes I’m fine when around others,
But alone, my breathing feels smothered.
My eyes constantly drift to you
To the point my staring becomes rude.
I love seeing your expressions;
I freeze when you give me attention.
Every look, smile, and touch from you
Makes me feel like I’m higher than the moon.
Not knowing whether to smile or cry,
The joy you bring me could make me die.
Being near you brings such a rush
Could this possibly be my first crush?
I’m not used to this funny emotion.
You like me? I scoff at the notion.
But if I told you these emotions, I fear the inevitable change;
If you didn’t feel the same, would our friendship be out of range?
Because of this I’ll be silent and wait
Hoping for the red thread of fate.
But what if these

happy birthday comin from different ways.
Plaster a smile on my face,
when all i want to do is hide away.
I don’t deserve these happy wishes,
the hopeful smiles or the friendly kisses.
What do you want this year?
to feel better and stop shedding tears.
The rosy cheeks as they sing me a song,
the laughing when others look and join along.
Looking around seeing their smiling faces,
then soon my mind takes me to other places.
Silently excusing myself,
i hide in the bathroom from everyone else.
Tears come to my eyes with a mind of itself,
remembering how last year i spent this with someone else.
The laughing and smiling,
his warm hugs and kisses.
The promise of forever,
but broken by false wishes.
Then i wipe away my glistening eyes,
and think of the people who are now in my life.
A small smile comes to my face,
but the pain in my heart found a temporary place.
My best friend who would do anything for me to smile,
the boyfriend i have to make life worth w

I guess the time we have to spend is not as infinite as it seems.
So, for one last time, goodbye Gramps. You're forever in my dreams.

I seem to have lost control.
I hate to admit defeat.
Can`t you see my soul?
`Tis a place of isolation.
I want to be saved.
Am I too far gone?
I fear I may be late.
I feel my energy abate;
I feel as though I begin to rot.
Does someone feel in the same lot?
I try to hide what feels like shame.
To whom shall I be laid claim?
My life, it seems, has gone cold.
Is there no one with whom to grow old?
My only option is to try and function.
I cannot hide anymore.
Who of you is there to care for me?

And I’m all alone.
The blood is dripping,
My vision is blurring.
The bottle of pills are screaming my name,
Saying that these feelings will stay the same.
The pain is slowly suffocating me,
Telling me everyone will be just fine without me.
I’m starting to believe,
Everyone will be so much happier if I leave.

and on the horizon I see my husband, lost once again,
as he searches for his long lost teddy named Ben.
The sand stains the tail of his shirt,
the one I'd just pressed, all covered in dirt.
He hasn't been himself, not since his dad died,
I just wish that he'd come inside.
We all miss him so much, and yet he's so close.
But until then, I prepare his next dose.

my body shakes from the cold
my arms wrap around myself
i miss you
i need you
i can`t have you
it`s better left unanswered
My hands are ice
my heart was made of glass
and you fixed it
you fixed it over
and over again
but it`s too late for that now
the pieces are inside me
cutting me open
destroying me from the inside out
i am bleeding internally
a single tear rolls down my face
it leaves a scar that only you and i can see
or now i suppose it would be just me
it was fun
Truely, it was
i was happy for once
i am not worth it
even you can`t make me believe all this
pain too intense for words drowns me
this kills me because i love you
don`t chase me when i run into the rain
the rain that makes me fell nice
i can`t do it
all i would do is look at you
at your face for the last time
my eyes would twinkle for the last time
i would cry my last tears
"i can`t do this anymore"
and that can`t be the last thing

flawed forms move through with their flawless ways,
These figures have faces of all of my friends.
And our voices echo through the rooms during sunlit days,
But the nights are ours, when the first spark ascends.
We're so hopelessly hopeful, for the wrecked world that awaits.
Lets tear it back down, and we'll storm to the gates.
We won't be held responsible for what others have done.
“Only when we eat up this planet will God give us another. We'll be remembered more for what we destroy than what we create.”
