Goodbye SorrowDoves released into the skyGoodbye Sorrow4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Taking with them all my fears
I sit here in this room and cry
While trying to wipe my tears
It hurts, I know it's for the best
You're in a better place today
I know that this is just a test
I'll see you again someday.
IsopropylDon't tell me I'm wrongIsopropyl4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Don't tell me that everything will be alright
How can any of that be true?
Especially after what has happened these past nights
Where I'm struggling to hold on tight
To this twisted and corrupt life.
Lost in the darkness
Can't find my way out
All this pain is being harnessed
For what I am not sure
What will be my cure?
Not like the last
None of this will ever again matter
Is that not what I am to believe?
Frozen deep inside
My heart will no longer beat
Slowing with every word I hear
Every message I read
The silent ones hurt the most
A soul without a host
Fear and tears
Have come much too late
Days come and gone
How wicked is this fate
Something's even mindlessness
Can not fix.
To forsake all thought
Brings new ones to the surface
No, don't tell me I'm wrong
Don't say that, what I believe is false
These words you say
Are laws to me
Mean the world to me
Stopping the world around me with one word
Can strip my life away
Is that wrong

Of your hand in mine,
Not a care in the world,
Our fingers intertwined.
I miss the feeling,
Of your arm around me,
As I looked into your eyes,
Like I was lost in their sea.
I miss the feeling,
Of your kiss on my lips,
The way your hands curled,
So gently on my hips.
I miss the feeling,
Of my head on your shoulder,
While you held me tight,
As the weather got colder.
I miss the feeling,
Of you being here,
Wishing you could wipe away,
All of my tears.

to the ground here, with you. Those
three little words, only eight tiny letters
stand for so much more than that months
since forgotten, and windows long shut
without the air conditioners that once held
Those three little words jab like perfectly
sharpened blades cutting away at my skin,
reminding me of the past, and teasing me with
an opportune glance at futures that float along
just past my grip, grinning at me.
My feet are not bound by rough ropes that
hold me down, no, I am free to move away, and
carry these ties with me, or reach my fingertips
forward to catch those words, yet I stay in the
chalk outlines you set me in - give me permission
to move, love?
These hands refuse to stretch anymore - they've
already been stretched away from plumpness and
into the realms of piano hands, and fingers that
go on forever. So take my hand. Compress me, and
carry me far away from those three words - how
they have made me hurt.

I am nothing more then a fragment
Peel back the scars
And you will find the bitterness
Tear back the masks
And you will see
Me, staring into the mirror
of Feckless lies and pain
Rebuild the scene and you find
For I truly am better than that
I am me.

It's been such a long time
I dreamt of you again
Staring down at you from a pedestal
Our eyes never met and you passed below
But I saw you
So black and so dark
I saw you
I thought about how it felt
The rush and the pain
Knowing that things would
never be the same
I thought about the hope
The way we used to share
Gone now, with very little care
I hear the ticking of the clock
I remember the way it was
Bittersweet and painful
The inevitable part
The way things had to be
You never really did get
What you meant to me
The memories are fading
As they tend to do
All left up to you
Blood between us
I bury the memories
I close my eyes and say goodbye
The black eyes darkened from the brown
The once glowing mind
Lost in the madness,
completely out of time
I carry this trust
a glowing locket inside
The soft sweet chords
Music dancing in my ears
The lotus blooms again
and I watch transfixed
The past a picture in sepia,
No longer of importance

And I hurry at the slightest indication of an us
but I just never seem to get any closer.
So I'll take the u out of us

Seeds that had never grown into a rose that I once wished for.
That I still long for.
Because this rose that I tried to nurture,
it had more thorns than
Because if I looked closer I'd see the horns on your head
and a malicious fire in your eyes.
And the t remains for touches that I never recieved,
the tales you never told me,
the truth you've always kept hidden.
And the word "Love" you like to hide behind so much?
Guess how I spell it.
And I just don't believe in words anymore.
The love you expressYour heart beats so close to mineThe love you express5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If I close my eyes I lose track of time
The soft surrender of your tender embrace
The simple beauty of your sweet face
You're so beautiful
Those eyes look into me
I'm afraid of what they'll see
I quickly turn away
You bid my eyes to stay
My heart beats more swiftly with your touch
I sometimes fear it might be too much
Simple the way you reach, my broken mind
Your touch so soft, so tender, so kind
If I could give it all away
If I could in this moment stay
I would do whatever I could
You know, that I would

exact color of your eyes.
And I can't remember the way you said
"I love you" when you meant it. (Did you ever?)
And I'm so sick of love songs saying
don't let me go, don't let me go,
when I'm not the one that's leaving.
Oh please, oh please don't leave me.
Yeah, like you're going to listen.
You're not here anymore.
And I forgot how my heart used to race
and how my whole being shivered
when I knew nothing of heartbreak.
But my heart won't be beating tonight.
and it won't be beating tomorrow.
And not until I am able to
promise myself eternity.
Cause every bird has to fall
to spread it's wings and fly up high.
And I'll be no bird -
I'll be an angel.
