Life is the space between your ears,
Life is the song that no one hears,
Life is the place that only you know,
Life is the grass growing through snow,
Life is the touch of a lover's hand,
Life is a castle melting in sand,
Life is the laugh that's stuck in your throat
Life is a poem that god wrote
Life is the shiver on a warm night,
Life is like death, only not quite.

When you have no choice
But to lie –
Especially to your friends
When people cannot accept you
For who you really are,
And you have to continue the act
Just for them.
When your darkest secrets
Are discovered by your friends --
The ones you never wanted to know about it
In the first place.
When you think someone loves you,
Then they go and let you down.
When people think
They know best for you,
When all you want to do
Is follow your heart.
When someone acts
Like your friend,
Like they really care about you,
Then the next day
They go and bitch about you
Behind your back.
When two people,
Who both like each other,
Won't go out with each other.
When the person you care for most
Will never know.
When your family,
Your own flesh and blood,
Turn against you.
Maybe water is thicker than blood?
When people make judgements
On your appearance
Instead of on the way you act.
When others cannot,
And do not,
Listen to your opinions
And simply think that your views
Do not matter.

"Are you okay?"
Why aren't you happy anymore?"
I just sit there
Wishing I could answer them
But if I knew the answers
I wouldn't be sitting here right now
Giving them a dead stare,
I turn around
Walking away slowly
They try to catch me by the arm
I just pull away
No once can bring me back
I'm off in my own little world
I don't think I'm coming back anytime soon
Someone waves a hand in my face
Once again the questions come
This time I put the fake smile on
But everything's just so fake now
People are starting to see through me
Almost as if I'm a ghost
I'm pale as the snow
Invisible like the wind
I'm a rather lost soul
And I doubt I'll be saved
Why would anyone save me?
I'm just a worthless piece of shit anyways
Don't bother wasting your time
You wont convince me otherwise
People have proved it to me through out the years
I'm meant to be broken
So I'm used it it now
The thought of being saved scares me in a way

All I'm going to say is...I miss you
It hurts to say this
But it needs to be heard
I'm no longer your butterfly
I can no longer save you
I cant set you free
Well I'm no longer free either
I cant soar through the sky with a smile
Now I am chained down to earth
Chained down with memories
Pain and hurt
I'm afraid I'll never break free
The only thing that can break these chains
The only person...is you
And we all know you're not coming back
Not this time
But that's ok
I think we're better off this was
Separate from each other
Don't get me wrong
I love you then
And I love you now
But we both knew it would never work
You had too much to worry about
I was just too heart broken
But it's ok...
This would've happened eventually
Better to have my hopes crushed now
They weren't as high
So it shouldn't hurt as much
Falling always hurts though
And this time I'm falling hard
You had me soaring through the clouds

But wounds heal with some time.
I'll move on but,
I'll never completely stop loving you.
Thou I can still hate you.
For so long I fought for you.
But now I'm wondering.
Were you worth that fight?
Tears fell,blood stained and heart shatttered.
You may say I can't hate you, or hurt you.
But would you like me to prove you wrong?
I can easily ignore you,
causing you to some pain, making you think
that i do hate you.
All I'd have to do to hurt you,
is choose another to be with.
I know you and I know your jelaousy.
So remember I can easily hate you.
Have you learned enough about hate?
I'll push you away,
and watch you fall to the ground.
I hope you've finally learned
I can easily hate you.....
but I don't,I love you!

It hurts to write this and think about you again,

Damn you, you always do this to me.
All I need is a simple sign,
or a breath, a whisper, a few words,
a smile, a touch, a hug... A kiss?
I remember all the time we spent, together,
I know we probably never were going to last,
but you know me, forever the hopeful.
Even when everything seemed to pile against us,
you smiled when I said "There's always hope."
And yeah, there is always hope,
but now it's a different hope.
Now I'm hoping for a sign,
a breath, a whisper, a few words,
a smile, a touch, a hug... A kiss?
Just something to tell me that you're still around,
I know you probably wouldn't go out that way,

because she lingers to feel the guitar strings as she falls into a deep slumber.
She's the type of girl who smiles over necklaces and promise rings
because she holds them dear to her heart
in a second heartbeat.
She's the type of girl who enjoys wearing ripped jeans
and oversized t-shirts,
because she's too afraid to expose herself
to the world
that broke her heart.
She's the type of girl who sings in the shower,
as she daydreams about seeing your face,
how dare you even see a smile.

Why there are haters out there
They just yell, instead of lend a hand
They just rant, not giving a care.
They're just jealous
Of the skills they cannot posses
When they see the great art, the hide how zealous
They really are, the are obsessed
So I laugh in their faces
They think they can get me down
I erase yesterdays traces
Of when I would cry and frown
At what they would say
it's just words of shit, I now know
The can't bring me down this fine day
That only happened a long time ago
So take my advice and shove it back
Show them that you aren't weak, show them you can fight
Express everything, show them that courage is what you don't lack
Show them that you are strong, show them you're right.
Because you are...

I was lonely and lost
Help always came too late
One too many times I had been crossed
Now this heart is filled with love
You're by my side and I've been found
Heaven sent an angel from above
I know you're always going to be around
I used to be heartbroken
Nothing in the world could make me smile
Words of regret and pain were spoken
I lived in the past for awhile
Now you're healing my heart
You're the reason for the smile on my face
Even though we're apart
I'll keep waiting for your embrace
You're my angel, my everything
Forever by my side
Protected under your wing
One day I'll be your bride

I Hate My LifeI can't stand being here. My life is not worth it. Sometimes I wonder why I'm here. Sometime I wonder if any one caers. I just bring pain to all of my friens. I keep draging the one I love into my problems. My frinds say they love me and yet they feel sorry for me. No one cares about my prblems. No one cares about me. I have so many Problems to many to handel. I can't say i was never happy. There always a time I was. But happyness doesn't matter now all I have is sadness and pain. I can't keep my self happy as much as I try. Maby I shouldn't be here. Maby it would be better if i was never born. I don't know. All I know is I'll never find happyness again.

Memorys of scars, running through the mind.
Just smile for everyone.
Prove your strength, because no-one will leave you then.
Does it really matter what they have said?
Take anyone who offers you friendship,
But trust them with nothing.
This world brings you up with hope,
Then crushes it all.
Still we enjoy it,
Because our lives are so short.
So why take them?
Even if I'm changing,
Even if I'm different.
I guess no-one could ever change it but me.
Believing the lies was step one,
But faking a smile, to make others happy was step two.
Why don't I cry for help?
It's not possible now is it?
Moving on, never looking back was step three.
Still you cry when head's our turned.
Even if they notice, lies are given once more.
Can't this world be perfect?
Ended it all.
If nobody stops me, it will keep going.
If nobody wants me, it will keep going.
Losing count of days,
As they roll on
Every day alive, is that really

It seems that life doesn't care what or how anything happens as long as it gets to the end.
I want to find out why I'm here. But like I said life hurts like hell.
You, I, and everyone else have been screwed over by life.
Life will always hurt. It will never give you the easy way, always the hard way.
Life will never tell you anything until the end, when it's to late

To soil my name?
To turn others against me,
and leave me in shame?
What have I done,
To garner such hate?
What did I do,
To earn such a fate?
Loved by a few,
And despised by many.
I gain loathing by day,
My life worth less than a penny.
I cannot trust,
My feelings no longer considered.
If I only get pain?
Emotions dashed and shattered,
For others personal gain?
I'm not a thing,
You can merely objectify.
Destroying my internal walls,
As I try not to cry.
My face is a mask,
Hiding the hurt within.
I try to keep it inside,
To gain a thicker skin.
I've gained an enemy,
That once was a friend.
Words crumble my happiness,
Leaving nothing in the end.
A heart left broken,
Shattered on the floor.
I'm an empty shell,
behind a closed door.

Oh did you? Goodie.
You may think I'm rebellious.
But I'm not.
You're too strict.
You know nothing about me
Except what a mother needs to
You know nothing
You don't care
Working is like a lie
You say you do it
And yet you take my own earnings
From my hard work
That isn't fair
Now is it?
You hate my style
How could you?
You make me sick
Feeling like I am
The parent and you
Are the child.
That's not how it goes
I am the child here
I can't express myself
I can't be who I want
I feel more like a puppet
Living how you want me
Damn you to hell
At night, I have the chance
To runaway from you
I know people who'll take me in
If I leave.
People who love me
For my personality,
Who I am
You may not trust them,
But I do trust them
They'll protect me
Whereas you cannot
I take care of myself
Even when I'm sick and
You turn away
You hear nothing

The pain that you feel,
Pain that feels so real.
This is your only,
Single way to deal.
Warm crimson liquid,
Leaking from your skin
Riding your body of your pain,
All your shame, and all your sin.
You know it's wrong,
But when it feels so right,
You just give up
And stop your fight.
In silence you scream,
Your struggles unknown,
Your pain goes unseen,
You suffer alone.

What is life?
I don't know.
Life is just…life.
It starts, and it ends.
But what is it like?
It's not like time. Time cannot be stopped. Life can.
Yet, it's like a river. Rivers can be controlled. Life can be controlled.
So is life like a river? Nah.
It's not like a river, and it's not like time…

Well, I'd say…
Life is whatever you want it to be. Good or bad.
No one else can make you change how your life is except you.
The question now is…
What DO you want it to be?
It's your choice. Make it a good one.
