Together ForeverI thought I had lost you for all eternity,
I truly believed that evil had taken over my sister.
Before my eyes you transformed into something far less than human;
No longer were we bonded by the thickest of bloods.
After failing to save you from the ugliness of fate,
I prayed endlessly to avoid succumbing to the curse.
But, quickly I had no choice but to follow you;
I was left alone to fight for my life.
Every waking moment was an endless struggle;
Seconds turned to minutes before my eyes,
And hours dragged on to days,
Until eventually time became my worst enemy.
Life was unbearingly dark without you by my side;
My beautiful sister, my vengeful protector.
I began forgetting the memories, the people, the faces,
And eventually I was barely able to recognize my own reflection.
But, just when the hourglass was fading fast,
You broke through the barricaded fortress,
You broke all the wretched rules;
You used this poisonous curse to save me.
For a moment I saw us little again,
The words from
True Love~~ True Love ~~True Love4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If to live is to love
and to love is to live,
then do we love because we live
or do we live because we love?
Does anyone really know
what it feels like to love?
Or do we say we love
to justify that we live?
Could it be that we live
just to prove the existence of love?
Because if this is true,
why do we hate so much?
To achieve peace in our world
we start reckless wars
that cause thousands of people to die,
yet we blindly live on
Is it our minds that are corrupted
to make us believe that hatred could obtain tranquility?
Or could it be that way we live?
Maybe even the way we love?
So many questions
that may never have answers,
but will always haunt us
forever depriving us of true love
AttractionA sweet, young girl sat unaccompanied in a crowd of thousands,Attraction4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When along came a mysterious man asking if he may so kindly sit next to her.
Raised with the manners of a respectable woman, the girl accepted his company;
But, little was she aware of his sadistic intentions and atrocious thoughts...
What had begun as a simple yet casual conversation,
Quickly turned into a series of frightful and unwanted words.
At first, this young man complimented her deep, sparkling, brown eyes,
And the calming energy he sensed when she smiled; a goddess-like smile.
The young man then began speaking of the sinful things he wished to do to her.
Alone, terrified and hysterical, the girl became washed over with the darkness of a black hole;
She knew not what to say or how to escape.
He grabbed the girls trembling hand; repelling her with sickness,
She quickly pulled away, leaving him angry and questioned.
He wanted to spend eternity with her, with someone he had met but minutes ago,
Saying he was in love w

I am so alone
With no seeds to be sown
No cards to be dealt
It sucked the way it felt
I am so lost with out you
Please give me a clue
To make it right
In your just sight
O but you don't care
No you wont share
On how to be your pale
Is it because i am so foul?
You have screwed me over
I don't know how you could get any lower
lease finish me
So you may be finally free

The world has changed so very much
unforchanitly I have too
I now see what I used to be
way back in the nursery
I loved it back then
when I didn't give a damn
All I knew was that I loved ham
I wish I could go back
Go back when we couldnt see or do hate nor war
All I knew was love and too adore
And when we were mad we just hugged and forgave
instead of blowing up with unforgiving radge
Yes that's what I want
Yes that's what I need
Yes I will look through my child eyes to let my inner child be free

It's six AM
I'm shocked that
There is no light
There is no time
And everything here
Is a deleted scene from Requiem For A
My eyes get heavy
And I begin to blame
I blame Bob Ross
And the internet
And the dying mini-fridge that won't
And eat me
And this dumb fucking
That will be the death of
And sliver of motivation
Remaining in me
I will blame anything
That isn't me
Because I Am Not An Insomniac.

in any respects of the word.
It's a futile hope,
of conjecture and lies,
to one day be more
than stained tears on my pillow.
I wish to be fiction,
a fly-by night show.
Perhaps a Grace or a Tess,
or even Samantha;
who always seems to get
the best of both worlds, and more.
I want time cuts and edits,
repeats and fast forwards;
anything that can take me
away from the scene,
and into the movie
I know I am meant for.

You can't change me,
I was born this way.
I am unique,
since my first day.
You can't change me,
I like how I am,
sure I'm "different",
but I don't give a damn.
You can't change me,
everything will stay the same.
You don't like it?
I feel no shame.
You can't change me,
for I am stubborn.
I like my life the way it is,
its what you must learn.
You can't change me,
no matter how hard you try,
I will be the same,
till the day I die.
You can't change me,
I'm one of a kind.
No matter what you say,
you will never change my mind.
I am me.
Let it be.
Battlefield of FirefliesHere we stand,Battlefield of Fireflies4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
in the ashes of those past fires,
Do you remember what our battle field was like last time?
Fire rose high as you stood covered in tears,
Your sword held tightly in your sweat covered hands,
Can you even remember who won the last war?
All I remember is the burning lights,
and your cold words cutting deep,
Deep into my already shattered heart.
Now we stand,
In the ashes of our past fires,
I know you remember the last battle,
All the tears we shed trying to make things work.
Our bridge has burned down to the ground,
We have no hope of re-building it,
Can you admit that this war is finally over?
We're surrounded by burning lights,
And your cold words have finally ended,
Maybe now I can stop these tears.
Now here I go,
I'll turn the other way and walk away,
I'll go on living the life I wanted,
All the tears we shed hang in the air around us.
The bridge we built has gone away now,
I tried to reach out to you,
But all I grasped was the cold night air.
We're surrounded by burni

So many broken hearts.
So many different people,
But death made then equal.
The sky was aflame.

The sky carried a song,
But people put it out.
We are but mortal.
We kill our own.
We think we're opposites,
But humanity binds us.
Lies never die "I'm fine"Lies never die4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Lie number one. This always seems to start the conversation you've had a million times over. You never enjoy this one either, yet every single time it is the same answer. You know the moment it is coming out of your mouth it's false. You can feel it coming from somewhere deep within the nerves of your body. It travels up your spinal chord to your medula oblongata, right to your thalamus where your brain is aware of the lie, but it doesn't stop there. It then reaches your pons where it is quickly distributed through out the innards of your cerebrum and cerebellum. It wracks the wall of your skull, yet you still let the lie come out.
"I don't know"
Yes. You do. You always do, but you still act like you don't. I don't know why I don't tell you what I actually know (Or Do I?). I want to say it, but sometimes I feel like you would have to grab me. Take my arm and twist it, twist it until the tendons and ligaments are ripping from the joint, popping the

I cannot describe my love for you
My love is a boat
In which you can float
Upon the rivers of trouble
My love is a wish
A shining star you cannot miss
Upon the skies of doubt
My love is a sword
that would defend you milord
Upon the battles of your lifetime
My love is a marker
may help you to printed your wonder
Upon the blank piece of paper in your mind
My love is a kiss
Let me plant on your lips
Upon your face of which my love has grown
My love is a person
Who could never worsen
Upon any sort of act or horror
My love is for you
My love is forever true
My love is what I can prove
My love is where I can start anew
And it all rests upon you

Please Give Me Chance
They comfort you, what have they done to alert you?
Do they deserve to be beaten and treated painfully?
Did we ever realize that they have the same feeling and deserve a right to healing?
So why do people agree to not allow them to be free?
We kill them everyday for a thrill.
So why do we still laugh at them for that?
Still laugh at their pain when they are in a chain and bleeding for another day.
A day to life, that doesn't have a knife or a price.
I believe that we are naïve.
They never hurt us, only tried to make us feel pride.
Did you ever think that maybe if they could talk they would say they would walk beside us?
Or even ask for another chance, a chance to never glance back.
But instead they are dying and on the ground they are lying, waiting for the sound of love.

You hurt me once, You hurt me twice
I took my chances and rolled the dice.
I watched our love slip away
it blew in the wind and went astray.
You never loved me but I loved you
now my heart is shattered in two.
I should've known you wouldn't stay
but silly me trying to save the day.
The way you held me felt so right
you were my everything my eternal light.
But since your gone my world is black
and all my feeling soon began to lack.
So here I lie cold as ice
knowing our love will never suffice.

Why I am still living this life,
This cursed life.
I wish to be on your side,
Even in the time after death
You are my love, forever.

But if I see you my heart shines
And makes the darkness disappear
I can't wait to see you again
To hold you in my arms
And hold on forever, till the last day
