I like to love,
I like to be happy,
Others like gloom,
Am I strange?
Am I special?

And while I get the tip of my pen out,
My tears flow slowly,
Because I am not happy,
And that's what I want,
And while the tears fall one by one,
I think of the lost loves,
I think of the lost happiness,
Cannot see the happiness when it's knocking at their doors,
These angels that go a little further away each day.
You reach out for their hands,
You even offer them tomorrow,
They want today.
I don't know what these angels want,
But I know what I can give them,
But it's not enough,
Because it takes more than me to lure these angels.
Yet my desire is to be one of their chosen one.
White and red go oh so well together.
I want to have one of the wings of the angel so,
That we both can flap them.
If however it's to blow hot air,
I will give it back.
But if it's to shuffle colors,
To do that I will gladly damn myself ten times.
White, red, pink, blue, scarlet, beige ...
I want them all in my whirlwind.
It's yet not stable,
The red blends sometimes with the wind

Like you wrenched my heart out,
Like poison replacing my blood,
You broke me,
Now go find the key,
The key to rewind me,
Let's just break you too,
I like that idea!
Let's take my pen,
Burry it inside your heart,
And see if it bleeds,
You're so cruel,
Poison gushes out,
And kills everything around,
You're cold as stone,
That's why you're alive,
A stone cannot die,
I'm broken inside,
And you just teared my heart,
I see it pumping on the floor,
That's my missing part.

Before I text you.
Because I know that I need you to be there,
But I know you don't know what to do with me.
I don't really think I should rely on you so much,
To make things better, as much as I do.
The most I can ussually get is a sentence.
If I'm lucky, I'll get two of them...
Either way... You don't really help, I'm sorry to say.
Maybe you know that? Maybe I'm being a bitch?
I've told you enough times that I need you more...
If anything.... I just need you to understand me.
I know I'm hard work,
I need you to be up-to-date with me though.
You never are...
Although, I always seem to be with you.
I don't know why I need so much.
It's probably because I think you can't give me that.
You can't see how much I need you sometimes.
I honestly wish you did.
Maybe if you did...
I wouldn't be sat here writing this,
Because instead of me being a fire ball of hatred,
You'd love me like you say you do.
You'd love me like you're supposed to.

he makes excuses
he lies through his teeth

his wounds are the proof
he tells her how
but doesn't know why
all he can do
is sit alone and cry
he sits in the darkness
alone in his room
he blocks her out
she finds a way in
she sees his pain
and holds him close
tells him its all right
she whispers in his ear
"just hold on tight"

Alone in her bed
Nothing else to think about
But how the pen glides across the paper
The words just flowing through her mind
She loved that feeling of darkness
Mixed with her depressing writing
She wasn't depressed though
She was fine
She just never learned how to write about
Because he was the one who taught her poetry
He showed her pretty words
And fake tears
He was a sad boy
With bright eyes
And long hair
She was a bright girl
Just as tight jeans
And a vocabulary that would make you say
Even he was impressed
She is just a girl with a thing for writing
He was just a boy with pretty words
She loved the intoxicating boy
He loved the girl with dark eyes that lit up
Any room she walked into
He loved her but she wasn't there one night
Only one fucking night
That was all it took
His pretty words landed on a note
"I love you, my thesaurus girl."
And his skeleton like body landed
Twenty stories below his bedro

Calm, cleansing mist
Delicate clouds dance
Reflection of a spirit
Dancing spring of colour
Stones beaten and forgotten
Peaches and Pears
Tender flesh, trailing juices
Heat pounding the earth
Summer draws nearer
Flurry of sunlight
Licks along the forest ground
Breeze, dancing a tango
Entice a wanderer
Picnic in a sunset
Spots have run
Striped against nature
Ladybug, red and black
Tiers of frosting
Pink, purple and orange
The sun tastes lovely
Brand new obsession
Cycle of change
Buzzing of the mind
You speak through leaves
Through bough and bracken
Who robbed you of your voice?
Alpha and Omega
Constant cycle of change
The children of spring
Float gently through the sky

that shatters hollow walls
his words taste bittersweet
his eyes, they seem to call
glassy skin, soft to the touch
splinters beneath your stare
this animal you loved too much
has little sense, but much to share
your SIN! is such a curious thing
with his paintings on the floor
if you listen to him sing
you might forget to lock the door
he plays with knives and broken glass
as if toys were much too dull
SIN!'s doctors said that it would pass
there's nothing brewing in his skull
but on that horrid, dreadful night
awaking to his hellish gaze
his manic grin, an awful sight
you knew he couldn't stay
now he sits there all alone
the boy who you called SIN!
his grin is gone, his face is stone
Insanity is wearing thin.

Monotony is the death of inspiration...
so just kill her now...
and end her pain...
There's so little left to live for,,,

They travel through time,
To reach their recipient,
They convey messages,
They convey feelings,
Messages of love,
Feelings of peace,
I'm always waiting,
For one from you,
I'm waiting for this message,
I'm waiting for this feeling,
When the message arrives,
The feeling just follows,
This feeling called love,
Is transmitted to me,
This message from you,
It just warms my heart,
Both of these from you,
Both of these for me.
Love, Anger and LifeAt first glance she took a step back, but after looking further more she took two steps forward. He growled and the earth shook, he stomped on the ground and took a step forward too. She looked into his eyes. She did not see his past nor his present form she just saw their future. Sadness was abundant in him as a key ingredient of this "monstrosity". She saw this and still loved him. She grabbed him and held him, he felt the warmth he had never felt before. To her he wasn't a monster, he was a being like any other, a "human".Love, Anger and Life5 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This

You tried to hide but I still saw

If you had not destroyed yourself...
Why did you defy the lies
and let them write you off as mad?
A hatter couldn't even touch
Their image of your lunacy...
But silly girl, you'll ever keep on
Falling down the rabbit hole
If you don't try to save yourself

That she could have different talents and different looks.
That she didn't feel like she always messes up.
That she could be better and more liked.
Then she thinks about it and realizes that she's her and it's not going to change.
So with time she will learn to love herself and the person she will become.

and so i asked her, as i came along behind her, "what are you doing?"
and she responded, as she threw her arms out wide and a gust of wind blew her hood off her face, "i'm remembering what it felt like to fly."
i sat down beside her, and she fell into a sitting position beside me. "did you ever fly?"
"i did not," i responded, pulling out a camera. i never took any pictures, it was just an old habit of mine: have a camera out and see what you catch. once i caught a sunset. after that, the magnificence had dwindled.
"flying is brilliant," she said, feeling the rainwater on her rubber boots. hands going up and down along them. "i can't describe it."

I saw the sky fall upon us.
I did not flinch.
The world around me screamed and ran
while i took my stance.
If no one would do it,
The weight was much
but I did not back out.
The years pass
and my strength has grown
yet the weight is still the same and more.
My body is strong
but my spirit is weak,
and the world is still unchanged,
they have forgotten about me
and the sky above them.
During these days
I have grown weak
in spirit and mind,
grown wary of humankind
and grown to hate them for their selfishness.
In a gust of fresh air I feel the weight get lighter,
in the distance a figure stands,
her hands held up holding the sky.
Walking towards me I see her face
full of joy and fulfillment.
This brings joy to me
as she stands beside me,
suddenly figures appear all around us.

north to south.
few but enough people have risen
to the call of the sky.
