Get things clearer. Try to see it through. I want to know what you exactly want from me, from us. If you still want to talk. If you still want to laugh. I want to get back the kind of equilibrium we had, before we had to walk on eggshells.
The truth is, I never met a person that is so like me. Youre a part of my soul, a part of my memories, (oh please, tell me something I dont already know), YOURE UNDEFINABLE. Youre forever minus a day so you wont scare me, youre a winter storm in July so youll surprise me, youre Orion without Betelgeuse so youre not

you'd be melody that'd make us a song
were i the tip of an evergreen tree
you would be the base that lets us stand strong
were i the small beads on a silver chain
you'd be the locket that would make us whole
were i a cloudless grey sky, drenched with rain
you'd be rays of sun, that make us a rainbow
but we're each neither the sun nor the rain
our love's not a song, nor a tree in snow
you are no locket, and i am no chain
but my love's far more real, because although
i've writ' a sonnet of sweet words untrue,
made of stronger bonds, is my love for you

I Know You Can't Hear My Screams
You Washed Away The Best Of Me
I Only Sleep
To End Up Dreaming Of You
You Tore Out My Heart, Left It There To Bleed
It Was Like A Punch In The Face Leaving A Mark
It Was My First Mistake
Why Can't I Stay Mad At You?
I Still Deep Down Inside
So Why Did I Let You Turn My World Upside Down?

KidsI mourn the daysKids2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When we were kids
Without a bitter thing to say
Those were times of peace
When we had no idea
That daddy hit mommy
Or how mommy cried
How daddy shot up heroine
He kept the drugs in your room
Under your bed
This is a broken world
We are destined to fail
That which is inevitable

Joey sat outside and watched the snowflakes melt on his bruised hands. HE felt like he was going to cry. Johnny and Joey had fought today. Joey had left the fight with a bleeding nose, broken glasses, black eye, bruised hands, and his right arm hurt like hell. Right after Christmas too
He'd ran off after the fight, and Tommy and DeeDee were searching for him. Joey's hair fell in his face again. They'd fought about Linda again. It'd been a tense topic between the two for a little while now. Somehow it'd come up in a conversation, and it quickly got violent. Joey wasn't good at fighting, bit he could kick and bite.
Rented ExplosionsA New Year begun, one third should be toldRented Explosions2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of shifting seasons, wild life in green
A New Year begun, decisions and moons;
Voices from Bohemia, the Sabbath
No more sacred than harvest moons, breakups
Sessions taken for lies told, lonely phone
rings like bells in Times Square for a fall love,
bound for Santa Fe, touching a real life.
Spoken affection, "Sugar, I'll hold you"
Though masks can't hide, longing for her smile.
In new town, cover her from the dark streets,
Senses flaring, they leave themselves tonight.
Waking up displaced, why the departure?
Dancing with strangers brought an end to this third

besides reality has a remote cunning
completely attached to it
There is nothing worse then the failure to communicate
and we seem to be on a spiral staircase
Caught up in a toxicity that would always forsake me
I seem to leave myself angry
When you fail to live up to what I am hoping for
love barely crawls upon the floor barely breathing
Suicide salutes us on a pivotal basis
facing the insignificant perimeter that leads us onward
Down the road forgotten are the majestic fairytales
that nobody ever is able to live up to or with

But now I'm done,

Could you understand?
For even one moment,
the hell in my life?
Or would you rather look away and die?
Watch me choke!

The life laid out in front of me?
Or will you look away and die?
Blood down my face,

down my throat,

Is it yours to steal?
The heart inside my chest!

Would shield you from what you really are,
Outside would won't understand,
Overlooking my performance,

Monster I've become,
On that candle lit,
Night you took my breath away,
Singing like an angel,
To be mine for all,
Realizing what you have done to me.

The next night Hiashi was sitting at his home office moving the glass of whiskey in his hand, he needed it after the pass two days he had. First, a lost Namikaze returned, and then he lost control of the business he had run for over 20 years to some lower level clan leader. Also now the same man now sat on the council along side the nobility of the higher clans. Suddenly a knock came from his door. "Enter." said Hiashi as two ANBU walked in before Danzo entered the room. Instantly Hiashi was on his feet.

If I pulled you away,
If I lied to you,
If I was never true?
How would you feel...
If I threw you out,
In the cold,
And smiled as the door closed?
How would you feel...
If I tried to bash you towards the wall,
With no mercy,
And yells circling your head?
How would you feel...
If I took your possession,
That means more to you than me,
And burned it,
To see how much the tears would stream,
From your pale glazed eyes,
And your soft frail skin,
It would drip off your chin,
Into the puddle of agony,
That you hold in your palms,
And cry out to me.
You spill the guilt into my heart,
And forever will my p

The fairest of them all,
She waves to me with careless ease
Her hand so pale and small.
The mirror on my wall declares
She is most beauteous fair
It speaks that if you see her
You feel like treading air.
Her hair like coal yet shines like diamonds
When hit by the Sun's rays
Her eyes a deep cerulean blue
In which evil innocence plays.
She mocks me from her garden perch,
Her laugh pollutes the air
She beckons me to "Please come down"
From my tower lair.
My Mirror, Mirror on the wall
She has not beat me yet
Time has a way of setting right
Things over which we fret;
For though my loyal Hunter failed

Rolling hills of emerald green
turn to a decaying brown
the gaily singing meadow larks
have all fled this frozen town
the once soft moans of lovers
have been stifled by the cold
and in the silence we return
to the world of old
to a world of mice and men
who scurried frantic left and right
and with the setting of the sun
left only owls lurking through the night
Their hollowed cries of haunting
echo through the ancient trees
and man's crackling fires
bring out the cries of dried fallen leaves
wolves sing out together
their foggy breath rank with death
and when the forest twilights break

"One in a million"
How often have you heard that line?
In every story of chance?
This begins with a million...ends with one
They come and go...every time...rarely stay
I was just hunting at that time as i remember
Looking up there was nothing...
as i bow my head down for a sip of water
there was something
Littles glimpse of light...a million of them
For reasons i dont know...a million eyes
As walking on...creating a trail of a million
They were behind me all the time...as it rains
The million stay beside...looking for warmth
Moving along...my stomach churned

I don't want to,
The floor is cold, flat, hard,
So much of my life isn't real,
So much is in my head,
The people who I talk to,
The fights I have,
Are nearly all in my head,
The people of the past,
Circling round me,
Spears to the ready,
The scars in my mind,
The welts and chasms in my sanity,
Are becoming more,
More and more,
More frequent a the earth turns,
My mind is suffocating,
Producing a gas which in the end will be its death,

Many destroyed in Pearl Harbour.
December 7th made life so much harder.
What do you say when theres so much death?
Do you tell the truth or hold your breath?

Racism rises in the depths of this haze.
Immigrants looking for jobs day after day.
They face rejection in the form of a gaze.
What do you say when theres too much pride?
Why does society make them hide?
The people suffered from oppression.
Freedom was far away.
Further after the Great Depression.
But were making more progress nowadays.

Working so hard to maintain the unknown. Like it matters. Like theres some significance. Save yourself the humiliation and ache. Hide your soul before it shatters.
