Breadcrumbs...Because too often we can feel lost
Shadows may come and cover you in darkness
But day will come bringing light and with it hope
For you will then see the path and the path will lead you
And if ever the path becomes unclear I will find you
So fear not being lost, for you will always be found

What If?What if you're making me out to be more than I am?What If?7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
What if you see beauty and perfection where it's not?
What if it's not enough when I've given all I can?
What if my heart is the only thing I've got?
What if I'm not thin and am emotionally scarred?
What if I'm plain and don't dress in the latest style?
What if I need to hide away when the times get hard?
What if I throw up walls, block you out for a while?
What if because you're far you can love me for who I am?
What if when you're here you judge on what you see?
What if I shrug it off like I just don't give a damn?
What if it's not good enough just being me?
Somewhere...And somewhere someone is cryingSomewhere...7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And somewhere someone is alone
Someone feels like their dying
And another waits by the phone
And somewhere someone stopped trying
And somewhere someone is scared
Someone is sick of the lying
Another feels they can't be repaired
Someone looks for the meaning of love
Someone feels by the blade of a knife
I'll give them my words and give them a hug
And maybe I'll have just saved a life
What Is Love? I'm missing a piece of me. A critical part. I suppose I was born much like every other person. I'm just missing one crucial piece. They've forgotten a heart. Where my heart should be is a cavity with nothing inside except a small black stone. Cold and hard.What Is Love?6 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Love. What was it about love? It's what everybody had. What everyone wanted. What everyone spent their entire lives searching for. Everyone, that is, except for me. Love was such an alien topic. A concept I could never grasp. A desire I never felt. Not that I ever felt much.
Stones don't leave you much in way of feeling. All you feel is how the stone feels. Cold and hard. Small, alone, and lost. Always something there just out of grasp. Something you can't quite figure out. Something...
And of course something was missing. Had I been able to peer into my chest I'd have known just what it was. But, as that i
Something...Something you've needed to hear...Something...7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You are my light in the darkness.
The strength that keeps me from breaking.
The one to mend my battered and bruised self.
My reason to continue through the rough patches.
The greatest friend I've ever known.
You for some reason love this broken soul
when no one else has or tried.
You can see me for all that I am
even though I'm invisible to the rest of the world.
You keep my weak heart beating
even when it just wants to give in and shatter.
You've gathered all the broken pieces of who I am,
and placed them back in order,holding them in place.
And even my darkest days you make bright.
I am less broken and more whole every second.
And the price for all this? For everything you've done?
Nothing. You have asked nothing of me.
Sometimes I say you've stolen my heart...
but truth is I gave it freely.

Just ignore them.
They're just words.
Words can never hurt me.
"I hate you."
They're just words.
They can't hurt me.
Why do I feel this pain?

Why do the tears keep falling?

Just three little words.
Why do they hurt so much?

Just Another For The BrokenJust another sad and broken little girlJust Another For The Broken7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Alone and scared she hides from the world
Looking downward so you can't see her eyes
Never letting anyone see when she cries
Just another little girl scared and alone
From a shattered past and broken home
She's scarred and bruised but hides it well
They think her life's perfect, but really it's hell
Just another little girl dealing with her fear
Living with a secret she shouldn't have to bear.
She hates who she is, because of what he did
Can't look at herself, she's one messed up kid
Just another little girl with secrets to keep
Lies awake late at night, can no longer sleep
Terrified of the nightmares that will fill her head
So she just lies there crying, alone in her bed
Just another little girl still awake in the night
Still afraid of the dark she cowers in fright
Afraid of the monsters so she stays awake
Silent tears fill her, her shoulders they shake
Just another little girl holding back her tears
Letting no one in, she hides all her f
You...You were my hero, my idol, my confidantYou...7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
My protector, my guardian, my friend
I stuck by your side, your partner in crime
You were loyal straight til the end
You held my hand when he came around
Breath heavy with liquor like he always did
You'd take the brunt, stood there in front
When he found out where we were hid
You told me everything would be alright
Confidence plastered on your face
But I saw the pain inside your eyes
A look you could never erase
You swore you would never be like him
Wouldn't do the things he'd done
That you'd be the perfect father
To your daughter or your son
Now I don't recognize you anymore
I hate you for all of your lies
Because you've gone and become
The one person we both despise

Miss the things we used to do
Miss the person I thought I knew
Where did you go?
I was the first to know
The first to take the blow
I still need your love
Need you to give me those little shoves
Need you to be my saving dove
What did I do?
Do to make you shew
To make you act like you should have knew
You miss me, I see it in your eyes
That's where you hide all the lies
That's where you want to die
Now I know where you went
You didn't leave, you were sent
Just know what I said I meant
You need me to love you too
You need me like I need you
Please tell me you're not going to shew
Now I see I didn't do anything wrong
We still have our song
But I know that I still have to wait; this is going to be long

Words of the one
Who expects no less
From those close by.
The oft remember flavor
Of the food well made,
And the smells that
Escape the notice
Of no one.
The echo of the yells
Gifted to the deep
Canyons of the world.
The burning passion
Found in the hearts
And the way I am
With those I love.

Please let me cry
I cant even lie
Don't even bother to ask why
This isn't your fight
Let me face the demons alone this night
Don't lead me towards your false light
Loosen your grip; I no longer need you to hold me tight
Tonight might just be the end of me
I cant live with this; just cant let it be
Go ahead, you can flee
It's okay let me be blind; I don't deserve to see
I bid you farewell
Please, I beg, don't tell
Don't give me away, don't ring the bell
Than again, maybe I'll see you in hell

There is never a need to prove anything to anyone. If you believe in something so beautiful, then just go with it as it will find it's place in your heart and last forever.
As a soul wrapped in flesh, we go through life with the concept that we as children of god, have a moral obligation to teach and love one another and cherish everything that is all around us and understand that what is shared, comes back in full circle and enlightens our spirits as well.
Share and just be...
A Perfect First ChristmasA Perfect First ChristmasA Perfect First Christmas7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Outside snow's falling all around,
Already a foot's piled on the ground;
Inside the candles are burning slow,
The firelight has dropped down low.
Our family's gone, the day is done,
We had ourselves a lot of fun;
Cookies, cocoa , candy canes,
Stories, songs and board games.
But now there's only you and me,
On the rug, beside the tree;
Wrapped in blankets warm and tight,
Snuggling close in the soft light.
Been making love the whole night long,
Listening to old-time Holiday songs;
And this is how I dreamed it would be...
Our first Christmas, just you and me.

Don't just smile away...
This is the day that
We already have.
A dance of blindmen
Leading the blind.
A singing of the deaf,
And a sharp word from the mute.
It's the left when
We are headed right,
And the dance
Of the lame.
Before we can ever be free...
We have to see.
We have to find ourselves.
We don't expect the mirror
To fix itself,
Because we aren't aware
That it was ever not this way.
