Failing SensesI miss the fireworks explodingFailing Senses5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and sonic booms shaking the floor;
I miss feeling alive.
I feel cold in the heat
and colors are turning to shades of gray;
I'm losing my sense of touch.
(I can't feel anything anymore)
I'm drowning emotionally,
the water is above my head.
I can no longer see light,
I can't hear the music anymore,
and I forgot what it's like to taste.
My fire is going out,
and I have no where to turn.
I'm not sure how to keep this fire alive.
Burning TogetherSeeing you for the first time was like being in one of those dreams you never want to wake up from.Burning Together5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But you always have to wake up, eventually.
Now that I'm back home in my solitude, it's like I never fell asleep in the first place. Memories, thoughts, dreams, they all start to fade.
With time. With age.
In the few moments between sleep and consciousness,
When you're lost in the unaware, safe within your own clueless mind.
I want to be lost in that in-between world with you.
But you always have to wake up, eventually.
I want to write down every clever pairing of words that has ever crashed against the inside of my skull.
I want to feel the weight of your presence, right there in front of me, crash down upon my heart.
I would give you my soul, every last fraction of it, if it meant you could be here to take it from me.
But sometimes, our souls have to wander a while before they can truly be where they belong.
I know where mine belongs.
My heart belongs in your hands,
My body belongs in

I dream that
we sneak out
and run through
the pitch black streets
and spend the entire night
under the moonlight
staring at the stars
and huddle close,
to keep warm
during that cold night
so close that
we can hear
each other's heart beat.
I'll wake up
we can make it reality.
UntitledI want you to say my name and hold me closeUntitled5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and whisper 'I love you' in my ear
I want my world to be sunshine at night
and for stars to twinkle during the daylight
all because you're with me
let's stay together, please
turn this world upside down
and let me see your smile
I feel as if I'm losing my grip
on the key to your heart
and it hurts to know that
it feels as if you're so far away
all I want is your happiness
but I feel as if
that's no longer in stock.
Matching HeartbeatsWe held our breathMatching Heartbeats5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
just for a second
to listen to the silence
We made our heartbeats match
and stopped thinking
about everything but our love
for each other
I guess you could say
our minds committed suicide
for our hearts.
for our love.
ControlI see the world through blurry eyesControl5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I hear the pain of silent cries
He ask forgiveness, mourns our past
Though we both knew it'd never last
I waited and waited for him to return
Months had passed, he showed no concern
Of my scarred and broken heart
Numb and bleeding, from the start
I fall in love, I finally move on
He yanks my wrist, I know it's wrong
I build a wall, lock out the world
I become a broken, lonely girl
Lost and looking for my soul
Fighting this battle for control
He wants me back, I say okay.
Who cares to see straight, anyway?
We are DisturbedSights and sounds and thoughts and heartsWe are Disturbed5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Have all begun to fall apart
It's like an explosion when we touch
Is it possible to be in love this much?
Let's burn to the ground, this city of pain
Let's make sure they know that we are insane
With a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on my door
Who could really ask for more?
This world is starting to drive us mad
This game we play isn't half bad
Running with scissors at the speed of sound
If we bump our heads, we'll surely drown
The crazy in us has begun to stir
We are disturbed, we always were
With this 'Do Not Disturb' sign on my heart
I have been hopeless from the start.

her head is filled with stories and ideas
concepts that are impossible and unreal
things that she could only dream of existing
but she doesn't dream, 'cause she forgot how to
and lullabies don't have an affect on her anymore
so instead, she lays awake in the darkness
and she's listening, thinking, and dreaming.
