I'm sorry......I broke your window
when reality came crashing through.
I got sick of waiting for the weather,
although I'd take your rain cloud any day.
Like water breaking through a dam
my words flowed forward.
Desperately trying to reach you
they lost their meaning along the way.
I kept my emotions bottled up too long
and they lost their flavor.
It was love that I wanted to taste with you.
Now I scrape it from my bleeding tongue.
Maybe it was just infatuation
rather than devotion.
But regardless of what is most believed,
I was tired of being pushed away.
More than anything right now
...I met you.
I love you.She was the type of girl who knew by heart the definition of each and every sentiment. Yet the words spelled and sprawled across the pages remained simply that--words, seemingly outside her grasp forever. And yet she prolonged the ritual of carving definitions, word-for-word, into the wall that closed off her mind. But it was not that she could not feel or that she would not feel. It was simply that she harbored deep inside a passion that no words in existence could ever describe. But I now know the word she so desperately searched for; it was "love". To the unknown entity that inspired her and drove her forward, the only words necessary to convey were these: "I love you."I love you.4 years ago in Emotional More Like This

The PedestalI told myself that you broke my heartThe Pedestal7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I cried out so angry hurt and alone
Yet when I was shown a light on the truth
I realized you were not what I once thought
Truthfully I see that I believed in an ideal
Not something standing there and very real
So the one who truly broke my heart was me
For allowing myself such a vain luxury
Of staring at you and inventing this dream
A persona of what you should be to me
Now that I know the real honest you
I find myself rather unimpressed sadly true
The person I imagined was stronger in the mind
Not this weak nothing gathering lost time
The person I imagined would keep their word
Not pretend to have never actually heard
The person I believed in was capable and kind
Not someone constantly distracted all the time
The person I see before me pales in comparison
To the creation of the ideal I thought I saw in you
Perhaps it truly is best that you never really knew

Every single day for the rest of my life
But I don't see the point in wasting my breath...
You're never going to forgive me
why would you ever want to?
I know you're hurt...
But why do you think I did that in the first place?
I'm sorry I broke my promise to you...
But I'm only human...
I'm going to make mistakes
are you willing to stay around despite that?
Everything is nothing now a days...
There's no meaning to this
You yell at me...
Tell me I have friends who care
People who love me to death
I know this doesn't help my case much
But I really don't care anymore...
does that makes me a bad person?
You think I like this?
That I like being hallow?
That I like being in so much pain?
That I like being misunderstood?
I hate it....though I know that's not a good excuse
I shouldn't of started...
Than I wouldn't have this problem
But the past is the past and I cant change what I've done
is it wrong to wish to change things?

But you don't.
You see me smile and think everything's fine.
But that's only the mask I show you on the outside...
Inside I'm dying.
Lying awake and crying.
I feel as if I'm falling.
Falling from the light.
This pain in my heart is heavy.
Its suffocating me.
Crushing my dreams.
You stand watching still seeing my smile.
I'm hiding behind this mask I made.
To keep you out and my feelings in.
Because I know if you knew my secret.
You'd expose me.
I'm not that sweet little girl you once knew.
I'm really a little devil.
I'm not a saint.
My hands are stained in blood.
I'm cradling a heart.
It once belonged to you.
But I've grown tired of your face.
I hold a knife up to my skin.
Cutting deep groves to relieve me of this thought
Carving your name.
The name I once loved so much.
Now you're a memory to me.
I'm still hiding behind this smile.
Behind this mask.

my sea-legs stumble upon
the rocking decks of my heart-shaped galleon
tossing in the tides of my chaotic inspiration
Love me because I am a broken artist
always searching for the perfect brush
and though my search leads me astray
love me because I will always return to you.
Love me because I will paint your poetry face
and sing your likeness on a portrait canvas
your poetry likeness will paint my mind
I am willful, wild, and coarse
courting chaos and madness,
crude, impulsive, as indecisive as the ocean.
Love me because I am a chaotic mariner.
Love me because I am not lost, only wandering
an adventurer enticed by the promises of
the stately muses; this ship returns
to harbor with stories of mystical lands
my poetry takes me on a spirit quest
and I carry you in my pocket like
a lucky cricket, your courage fills me
with the strength of an army.

lift your flying carpet to heights

I write because I will
I write what's on my mind
And I write that with a quille
No need for memory
Or any sign of sin
Just some words from my mind
And here's where it begins
I sit in a room of hurt and dispair
Maybe start writing about that girl crying over there
She seems so lifeless, tired and weak
With long black and red hair covering her face while she weeps
They aren't always right
They aren't always true
They aren't always about me
Not all about you
But they're about something
I'm yet to find out what
They come from my mind
Sometimes from my heart
I can write of love
I can write of pain
I can write of hate
I can write in vein
But one thing I can't do is say what I know
Because that young girl crying could ruin the show
The one in the corner with the black and red do
That one about the crying is about me not you.

You were a blind boy who could paint a picture of me perfectly without ever having seen my face, and you'd describe the most breathtaking sunsets to me on cloudy days, while I wished for more bad weather so I could listen to your voice a little longer...
You were a boy in a wheelchair who could hit home runs without ever picking up a bat, and you'd tell me about how running felt like flying with your feet pounding the ground in a staccato beat, while I was convinced that sitting next to you was the best way to fly.
You were a deaf boy who could sing beautiful songs without ever having heard them on the radio but still hitting every note, and you'd tell me about music and how it fills you up like helium in a balloon, while I thought that maybe I should stop listening to everything else because obviously you were the only thing worth listening to.

The fun lasts till I feel scared
Yet every moment a memory shared
Odd how things seem to be
Perhaps past lives haunting me

New lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
All I want is to see you
But youre so far away
Angels will fly
Beyond the ends of this old planet
To sanctuary, where you have always been
Beyond the endless ocean
They will find you alone
Angels will try
To tell you how much I need you
In my sanctuary, its nothing without you
I want you in my arms tonight
But all that I hold is nothing.
Away from pain and darkness
Ill shield you from it all
Angels will cry
The first time they lay eyes upon you
In sanctuary, where sun bathes you in light
They go as far as they can,
But will fall to the ground
Angels will die
Upon the shiny gates of heaven
Their sanctuary, where you choose to lay
All I knew,
is all gone
All thats left
Is in me

I cannot stand the stench of it.
I will abide, and turn my cheek.
And upon my own face I will wreak.
Sickening and stale,
Bleach covered lies.
Synthetic, puss covered shelter.
Who was the victim,
Who are you to say?
I was so much younger then.
All these years I have held myself together.
I peeled the glue and scabs,
And I stitched my own wounds.
Into denial, I shove the ones I love.
I derived my mind from my Father,
And my anger from my Mother.
Who is the victim,
Who are you to say.
I was so much simpler then.
All these years I have forgotten to,
Wash my hands of blood.
Who was the victim,
Who are you to say?
Do not leave me to myself for too long,
Because the safest places are the most dangerous,
I am free from the havoc,
But I am not free from myself.
Drain me of what is left inside,
Hurt me oh so carefully,
Break the veins if you must,
Break the skin, and break the bones.
Who is the victim,
Who are you to say?

she has a guy to lean on
