If for just once

who you've always wanted to be,

these waves can channel
our very own thoughts,
that today's going to be
a damn good day,
sometimes all you need
is a rock,
fluorescent spray paint,
and a loved one.

Wishing I were there,
Clouds caressing you,
The sky wrapping you in blue,
Not a care in the world,
Worries become unfurled,
But life keeps me bound,
Forever to the ground,
I plan my escape,
To leave this wicked landscape,
Let's see how long I can hold my breath,
While I wait for the gift of death.

blaze of the night
dance with the wind
shine in your cage
Entrance the misfits
with your mystic flame
cast the darkest emotions
at the end of the day
Discover all our sins
Gather the subtle fear
we have for your mystery
Take me away
to that one place
where the shadows meet the light
the in-between of everything
Keep me there.
NightlifeThe sun is slowly rising,Nightlife6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Closing another dark chapter,
If only it would last a little longer,
I'd be all the more stronger,
Feeding off the night air,
Living peacefully in this black abyss,
The nocturnal creatures greet me,
Introducing me to the world they see,
How I long to be forever with them,
A world in which we rule,
While you all turn to slumber,
We cast the thunder,
Little children will awaken,
Scared by our glorious creation,
Yet the sun always has to end our fun,
It has always won.

carries away what remains
of my body,
you can exhale that one breath
that's been causing you discomfort,
Let it all go,
I'll fly through dimensions,
shed all of my demons,
So please hold on to my memory
and not my soul,
Let me go,
Allow my ashes
to ward away
Don't worry about a thing.

Bring me to life,
I feel their pain,
Pouring into me like rain,
Feeding off the fear,
Needing this in me,
What a brilliant sight,
As I fulfill my appetite,
Taking each one,
But it's okay,
They want out of life,
So we're both satisfied.
I Am HumanI play this game,I Am Human6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With intentions of winning,
I starve myself,
With results of thinning,
I drugged myself,
Now my visions spinning,
I cut myself,
And found it thrilling,
I hide myself,
'Cus your words are chilling,
I wake myself,
Praying I was dreaming,
I destroy myself,
And continue drinking,
I hate myself,
My heart is breaking,
I hurt myself,
Because I enjoy sinning,
I killed myself,
Because death is easier than living.

But, that didn't stop me
from liking the way she
She was a wild, all-consuming
i n f e r n o
With a tongue like hot wax
and cool peppermint ice-cream.
She skipped on tiny, pixie feet
whispering bitter winter promises
in the middle of 90 degree weather;
unraveling hearts like her favorite
pair of DIY holly jeans and wearing
leftover heartstrings like false
[ I burnt to a crisp
under her fingertips. ]

I walk across the sand
it feels the same
I can't find my spark.
once I tried jogging,
but the only change
were the spaces between my footprints,
how many grains of sand I had collected,
the amount of time spent wasted.

just to talk,
what a joke.
delirious visions follow you,
guiding the faulty heart,
if only there were no cracks,
if more blood,
would lead the control center,
you would realize,
it was never real,
he never cared,
about the way you bite your pens,
or even the sound of your laughter.
If you make believe reality,
your blinding fantasy,
will not be what it seems.

Running round in circles
Leaping to her daddy,
Helping with her mummy.
That's how it should be.
Her friends watch in proud envy
As she has her first kiss.
It's sweet and
That's how it should be.
Now she's being taken away
Kidnapped, taken prisoner.
He beats her and
He rapes her.
And that's how it's going to be.

Myself from scratch,
Hiding the birthmark,
Yet, these obscurities encasing our organs,
Found on the horizon line,
Of our skin,
Should mean as much to us,
As past lovers do,
They just don't matter.
Answer to loveLove is blind,Answer to love4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Let emotions take over your mind,
You won't find love when confined.
Make it an adventure,
Stop worrying about the future.
Live to make mistakes and failure,
It'll only make love so much sweeter.
The possibilities are always endless,
Never say its hopeless.
Don't be afraid to scream and confess,
Express you're obsessed with finding success to suppress the distress.
Love is to suffer,
Not because it is torture.
It is because we suffer to find love and be together,
So we could heal our hearts with each other.

that can give me comfort, is the night?
The moon hiding behind the clouds
The only sound, of crickets?
Isn't it just sad, that only night
can bring me what day cannot?
Walking in the silent streets
With the occasional car passing by?
Isn't it just sad, that the moon
is the only presence which I can tolerate?
Daytime is so crowdy and busy
Whilst at night, I find peace in my soul
Isn't it just sad, that my thoughts
Can only be relieved by darkness?
The same darkness which once hold me too tight
And let me fall, now embraces me just right?

it's nearly gone,
[what memories it holds]
only to be torn away,
no matter how much you beg for it to stay,
inching lower each day,
such a painful process,
[to watch all your hard work fade away]
as it crumbles before you,
nothing can be done about the issue,
no tape will solve,
it was just a matter of time,
[fate always has wicked plans]
you can't run from it,
can't chase away this culprit,
as everything comes undone,
strange thoughts come to mind,
[what did I do wrong]
the answers are just out of range,
eventually realization dawns upon you,
things can change...

It just dulls your radiant beauty;
I don't want to hear your voice recorded,
It just fades your vivid timbre;
I don't want to see you on video,
It just makes me long for your soft touch;
I don't want your love letters,
I just want you.

they think there's something wrong with my head.
Seeing and hearing what is not there;
thoughts and feelings that just won't let me be.
And I have to agree that there's something wrong with my mind,
but all I can do is live my life,
and try to leave my troubles behind.
Without youAll I needed was you to talk to me. But you couldn't do that. Everyday without you was painful, yet seeing you was painful. When you talk to me, I smiled because I know it won't last long.

We were sitting on the grass, and I inched closer to him. "What is it?"
"Promise me that when I get to New York, you'll enjoy everything even though I won't be here."
I was silent. It was going to be hard for me......
"Of course I will." I said after a moment of silence.
"I want you to be happy." He said, not totally convinced and wrapping his arms around me.
"I will, don't worry. I mean, I'll miss you, but I'll be happy." And I meant every word, for a promise is a promise.
