Out of VisibilitySuch beautiful script, but it says nothing
A pretty face is all you see, but I didn't chose this casket
Nor do appearances mean a thing to me
So go ahead, get swept up by this beauty,
The facade that only eyes can see
But I am a shadow
Slipping in and out of visibility
You do not see me,
I absorb the light your form of sight depends upon
So that all that is left is me
A mess of invisible hues and tones and shades
That can never amount to anything
If no one looks hard enough to find me
Such beautiful words, but they mean nothing
When all that there is is feeling
That cannot be seen

I want to hear it so many times
That it becomes my life
Turn up the volume and the bass
Drown me, drown me...
Falling, skinning my knees raw
It's so much fun, I laugh so hard I cry
But once the tears come to my eyes
I realize that I'm lonely.
I've already got the prescription
So give me a handfull of pills
Turn up the static in my head
Turn up the fucking static hardcore, man
Until this love song is loud and bass enough
To kill my dread.
I want to dance like no one's watching me
Like I don't care who is
I want a million hands on me
The heat, the sweat, the deafening noise
Right beside the moshpit,
That's where I want to be

until the end of time.
If you doubt this love of mine
just look up
ask my eyes.
They can tell you no secrets
they can tell you no lies.
Then ask my lips
and in a sweet tender kiss
they'll tell you of my love devoted
to your body
and it'd pleasure and bliss.
Or just ask my hands
so they may reach around
and hold you close to this heart that pounds.
Then ask my body
watch it come alive.
With just a glimpse or a look
from your intense eyes
But truest of all
if you just ask my heart
it would reach out to yours
where the world is dark
to tell you I love you
saying forever I'm yours.
Heart to body
Body to soul,
ask any part of me
For you I'll let go.<i>
The BibleYeah, that title has probably turned you off already. I wonder if youve ever really thought seriously about why that book just completely disinterests you. Your first reason is probably, Well, Im not a Christian. I know you arent. Thats the main reason you arent reading it. But think seriously here. Putting aside your doubts of a God ever truly existing, what else freaks you out about the Holy Bible?The Bible6 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Generally speaking, of course, there are a few things that people find terrifying, ridiculous, and/or annoying about The Bible. For one, they doubt its credibility. They find it hard to wrap their heads around whole seas parting and water being turned to wine. They just cant believe a giant flood wiped out all of man-kind except the last surviving family who gathered all of the animals in the world on a boat and sailed for hundreds of days. Sure, when its put that way, who could believe it? Ive got a big number f

Baby you are mine
Don't ever let me go.
Your smile is lovely
You brighten up my day
You love me so gently
And bring happiness my way.
I'm so greatful for your love
So happy I found you
You've been sent from above
And my love for you is true.
You're the best person I could ask to be with
You're the girl of my dreams
Your the answer to my wishes
The happiness your fairy-tale brings.
The Ten Commandments.Her lips are made of bleeding tin, blackened scars disfiguring her chest, white grimy ribs hanging by loose tissue-threads, spilling out of her organs. Her skin is flaming masking tape, sticky and breaking; you see, she isn't holding together very well. She's translucent, a dying star coated in glittering space dust. I can see her shimmery heartbeat, irregular and stuttering. Silver. She's quick on her feet, hair as colorless as my courage, eyes like the moon outside your weeping windows, egging you on to slice a little deeper. Reach a little farther for those arteries, darling.The Ten Commandments.7 years ago in Scraps More Like This
She's aviation, invention, cold and metal. Feathers and worms.
She's the very reason people like me don't go to church anymore. She's so tainted, irresistibly poisoned, from her bird's beak to her toes, painted to resemble talons, green as envy, killing the grass. She's a mocking bird in every way except for the part where she doesn't sing.
