With a pinch the world endsI keep staring at the marks on my shoulder
and the heart shaped bruise on my upper arm
trying to figure out why I'm putting up with this
I know I deserve better, but I'm convinced I love you
I don't know when to run, when do I leave this time
You keep saying you're sorry, you don't mean to hurt me,
but isn't that what they all say, no one ever means it
It starts with a pinch and next thing you know it's a fist
I actually believed there was no way you'd ever do that to me
I never thought you'd hit me, but now you're not so far from maybe
and truth is, it scares me, I'm afraid of what you're becoming,
afraid enough that sometimes I want to drvie off and leave everything
I want to drive long past the point where I run out of road
I want to drive into the ocean and find where the world ends.
I'm not a perfect girli'm not a perfect girlI'm not a perfect girl3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
my clothes never fit me right
my nail polish is always chipped
and my hairs always in my face
sometimes i say too much
other times i don't say enough
because I'm not a perfect girl
sometimes i cry for no reason
i say things i don't mean
and i act before i think
sometimes i get scared
and sometimes i run away
because i'm not a perfect girl
I lack self confidence
I listen to my music way to loud
I choose to keep to myself
and write all my thoughts down
sometimes i drink to much
other times i take to many pills
just to escape from myself
because i'm not a perfect girl
and sometimes that gets to me
some days i feel like a loser
I don't feel good enough for you
nothing I ever do could ever be right
I don't see how you could ever love me
because i'm not a perfect girl

Just make sure you don't regret it,
On your one last dance,
One breathe and it's already been and gone,
Truly really it's not that long,
So hold your breathe and freefall into the unknown,
It's not always pleasent, not always sweet,
But life's something you really have to see.
The suffering the pain the worldy woes,
The ups and downs, the highs and lows,
Just make sure you live it, cause
Some of us drown in it's flood,
Others are pushed, some dive,
And then some get through it, by the by,
So hold your breath,
The time has come,
To break your chains,
They've come undone.

I saw this music video on the Family Channel (That's the Canadian Disney Channel if you didn't know) and if you didn't see it, here:
NOW, let's get dissecting. Veronica, I don't get it. You seem like you're trying to be Taylor Swift as a lyricist but you're not. Your lyrics, if they make sense, are not clear. It's not the cool type of cryptic like System of a Down where you seem edgy and a tough mind to be deciphered, it's the poorly phrased type of cryptic. Even with just the words, it's shallow, and thought obviously wasn't put into the content. I'd rather be listening to Rebecca Black, at least she has a little heart.

We areIt seems that everyone grows up to be beautiful.We are2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
But what are we now, then?
Are we just shards of glass hanging in the wind, waiting for the light to shine through?
Or are we really waiting at all?
What if we're just sitting here, trying to remember what it was that we were brought here to do.
As though we had a reason for being here, this very moment.
Yes, even you who sits here alongside me wasting time dilly-dallying and singing tunes that have no end.
What if the reason we're here right now cannot be put into words, but can only be felt?
Like the warm breath of air that escapes the clutches of the sun as it furrows the tired grasses that fill endless fields before us.
Is it that someone's there watching over us?
Maybe, but seeing as you're smiling right now, it is because you're watching over them.

Towards the dark
Closer to the beginning,
Where we hide,
In the darkness,
Don't choose this side

At least the first,
But not the second,
The one you choose more
I cant give you up,
You are my light,
You are my life now
Gently Letting GoI feel so very lost in this tattered maze,Gently Letting Go2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
A maze created by threading your fingertips through my hair,
A clutter of knots to tussle through, when a simple release was all there was to do.
I can still faintly see you whenever I close these heavy eyes,
But now when I see, the depth of your eyes tell me something that has been left unsaid.
Tell me, what is it that has gone awry..? Now my pulse has steadily run dry.
Perhaps my guesses are true, that maybe all I ever did was hopelessly allure you,
And you couldn't shake your eyes very far from my tantalizing gaze,
Or perhaps the roles are reversed- and suddenly it was I who was so breathtakingly immersed.
Immersed in your presence, your kind hand, your every word,
I could so easily cloud my mind with the thought of your gentle touch,
But what frightens me is that perhaps it's all over, and maybe I had given too much..
Too much can be overwhelming, too much can be hard for one to bear,
So with kind eyes, I'll respectfully glance away, as fo

When I stole a moment from you- catching you blindly looking into my eyes,
I remembered.. why it was that I started breathing again.
After what seemed like an eternity of sleeping- just slipping through life, wandering aimlessly,
I remembered what it was like to see you again, after so long.
Bubbles arose within me like a can of soda that was just opened,
You tickled my nose, made my tummy settle down, and you placed a cold hand on the nape of my neck,
You played with my dark hair and giggled at the way I was staring lovingly at you,
And you asked me, "Would you join me tonight?"
My mouth fell agape and my eyes grew bleary, but you held me steady by wrapping yourself around me,
As I felt it well within me, I gazed upon you again, fair goddess.
Took your hand for the very first time. Unafraid, and dignified.
And with a simple smile, I whispered, "closer, closer dove" and then she silenced me.
And for once, I was glad

From when he kissed her and stole her
Very soul instead of her cotton-candy breath.
He picked her apart again when she finally found
The very last piece of a puzzle that seemed destined
To be broken. He toyed with her mind and gave her a
Drug called love, he didn't bother with the details, the
Expiration dates, the deaths. He didn't bother telling
Her about the addiction, of the roller coaster ride of
emotion that would swirl inside her, threatening to break
The dam she built, the façade she worked so hard to hold in place.
He didn't tell her.
And she didn't care.
He reached down inside her, lightly skimming the bones of
Her ribcage and let her fragile butterfly heart give one last flutter
Before ripping it out and replacing it with something cold.
He breathed winter dust on her skin and watched as crystals
Formed on her eyelashes. He look his time with the one once
Known as the neighborhood summer girl so that nothing could

I want the world to see my pain.
I don't wipe them away, or shield myself.
I stand in the open, and wait.
I wait for someone to care, or even to notice.
I wait, but no one looks up.
The ones I love have turned.
They aren't who they once were.
Are you proud of what you have done?
I wear my tears like medals of honor,
and I don't let the sadness get to me.
I rise from the ashes, glorious and strong;
strong, but not perfect.
Because the bad things are still a part of me;
haunting me like ghosts.
They are reminders of where I have been,
and also where I am going.
So tell me, are you proud of what you have done?
I wear my tears like medals of honor.
they are not a sign of weakness,
because that would mean I'd givin up.
I wear them as a reminder to you.
Because you can take away all you want,
and try to tear me apart,
but you will never break me.

And feeds on blood,

With your frozen skin,

You draw me closer,
until you're in view.

I think she's given up – on everything. On her friends, on her family, on her future. She still acts like everything's A-Okay, smiling and laughing at the appropriate time and pretending to care about what's going to happen next.
She walks with the people she calls her friends, walks and talks like she's their friend. But I know better. She goes to their houses sometimes, and they pull out their stashes, and any problems she might have had fly out the window. For a few hours, it's all giggles and things she won't ever tell me about. But then, when reality starts to take a death-grip again, and she realizes what she's done, she cries. She would never let anyone know, because her tears are on the inside, but she cries still.
The pain that she's caused herself has gotten to be too much for her.
She can't say that she's doing this to herself, either. It's because her mother smokes in front of her, blowing the smoke away from her daughter, but it wafts back into her chest and chokes
Cry WolfThere are the WolvesCry Wolf8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And there are the Sheep
The game is dangerous,
So be careful while you sleep
This is a game
A game of lies
Be careful whom you trust
The Sheep who guesses wrong dies
You must guess who is friend or foe
Without knowing a true clue
The Wolf is on the prowl for victims
Make sure you know what to do
In the cover of darkness The Wolf makes his move
Killing off the Sheep one by one
And for those left who guess correct
Will be the Sheep who have won
It's a game of cat and mouse
So be careful whom you trust
You might just be a mouse trusting a cat
Who will stab you in the back with a single thrust
In a game of lies
You must be aware
Otherwise you could end up dead
So pay close attention to your dreams and beware
The Wolf is lurking in the shadows
Waiting to catch a Sheep of guard
You must take a stand and fight
Or your friends could be scarred
So let this be a lesson
To those who are the lying Wolves
Avoid suspicion, manipulate your friends, and eliminate your enemies

gushing and bursting
with words that couldn't

she feels about him.
She came smiling

whispering and giggling

how handsome his face is
and how lovely his voice is.
She came bursting

unable to find any words at all,
but traced the feel of his hands
and the touch of his breath
and the taste of his lips
and she knows
he's the one.
She came crying

and her tears said it all,
how he'd broken her heart
and she was alone again
how she couldn't hate him
for what he'd done
and how love is so grand,
but it hurts so much.

Crying in the night
The feeble man shakes
And hides from the light
He looks with a shiver
At his shattered mirror
He stares at each sliver
To see a bit clearer
He sees his past lives
And he sees his new fate
The truth sinks like knives
But is it too late?
He knows what he's done
But not what he's to do
He's looked for the one
The one who is true
She is a fair maiden
Simple and plain
She is the one laden
Who will end all the pain
He longs for her now
In this darkening time
And remembers how

Just after you're gone.
I come undo,
Then you have the nerve to leave.
So, leave me cold.
