Your Hand In MineThe meadow whispers a hushed sigh
Caressed by a gentle breeze dancing by
Blades of grass shiver then rest
Rise and fall like a dreamer's chest
The hum of crickets singing their song
A night of peace that won't last long
There we lay, alone with our love
Stars from heaven hang just above
Your lips so soft, brushing my skin
Its feathery touch makes my head spin
I look into your eyes, deep as the sea
You hold my gaze as you smile at me
The beauty of our love made us appear to shine
We'll always have each other, your hand in mine
GoodbyeThe earth, she waits for many yearsGoodbye4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Through the bloodshed and the tears
She's seen the hate and poisoned things
Listens as the death card sings
Waiting for a certain day
A lonely path where flowers lay
Two paths will cross, eyes will lock
Time stands still on true love's clock
Hand in hand, they walk along
They face their fears, love keeps them strong
Finally, they stop and turn
Tears so loud, they streak and burn
A final kiss before they part
Rose red lips, a broken heart
The earth, she breathes an empty sigh
And watches as they say goodbye
November ColdNovember sinks its icy fingersNovember Cold3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Between my shoulder blades
And an ache blossoms inside of me.
I imagine a lacy white filigree of frost
Growing over my lungs,
Spidering over my veins
And up into my heart.
The cold crawls up my throat
So that when I breathe
I half expect snowflakes and hoarfrost
To fall from my lips.
I've got an ice-heavy heart in me
And I am breathing winter,
Wondering if my tears would freeze
If they even fell at all.
Help me shake November's chill.
Blaze passion and fire into me
And never let me pull away from the heat of you
Kiss away the rime of ice that coats me
Sink your fingers into my skin
So that cracks spiral crazily from your fingertips
So that finally, with a small shudder,
I splinter and sink into you
Burned and blackened,
I am only yours
And November will never touch me.
Waiting For The SunriseCrimson leaves wrap black concreteWaiting For The Sunrise3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tired stars provide no light
Every single time emotions mix
I know I'm in for a rough night
Bitter breezes blow my thoughts away
Gentle waves sooth battered feet
Frigid feelings make my heart so cold
Passionate thoughts cringe at defeat
Jet black evenings let me be alone
One lonely bench is all I need
With resting trees I overlook the sea
Just like the sky I've learned to bleed
Delayed truth always has the same impact
Words leave a crater on my soul
Conscious thoughts can't cross the gulf inside
Like a sinking stone I've got no control
Silver lines crisscross upon the clouds
Tired flames flicker in my eyes
Some nights I can't fix a single thing
It's why I wait for the sunrise
Fleetingly ColdYou were barely thereFleetingly Cold4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your kiss was so cold
You felt like ice against my lips
Chilling me to the bone
But I knew
It was you
Your kiss felt the same
But all warmth was gone
Your protective embrace
Only freezes my soul
But I want to savor
This moment with what's left of you
That warmth is gone
Like your time with me
Fragile and fleeting
That is life
But at least
We could have
This final silent moment
To pretend we're still the same
My love for you
Goes beyond the grave
So though you're unreachable
These feelings will follow your ghost
Missing YouWhen the moon shines downMissing You3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On a glistening, glowing sea
And you hear the whales call
That's where you'll find me
I'll be in your dreams
As you sleep at night
Shrouded in mist
Just out of your sight
Whenever you're alone
And a sad song plays
Look up at the sky
I'll be the suns rays
When you walk though a garden
And feel a gentle breeze
It will be me you're feeling
Putting you at ease
Where ever you go
Whatever you do
Just remember, my dear
I'll always be with you
Broken MirrorBroken MirrorBroken Mirror4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking at yourself
From a broken mirror
That jagged crack
Holds your deepest fears
Where nobody cares
And you're all alone
And no one can hear
Your cries, your moans
You judge who you are
With that rigid line
Your doubts, your faults
Are not hard to find
You've lost all hope
In believing again
Lose trust in your dreams
Trust in your friends
You destroy your life
Because of that crack
But along the way
You lose things you cannot get back
Focus on the things
The mirror still shows
Your smile, your heart
Because everyone knows
The mirror only broke
Because you expected
Because you had no faith
In the mirror you selected

When you laid your head against my shoulder
With your hand on my chest
And closed those beautiful blue eyes
Your slender form embraced by my arms
I felt so proud to be able to call you mine.
At rest, and at peace
Like silken thread in the moon's light.
Like pure, soft snow.
The easy rhythm of your breathing.
Like waves lapping gently at the shore.
The beat of your heart.
Close, clear, comforting.
You stir, and nuzzle contentedly into my neck.
I am powerless to do anything but smile.

That my essay was perfect, that I nailed the presentation, that the biochem final was a walk in the park.
And, oh, God, I want to tell you so many things and that I love you and that I want you and I want to feel your arms around me, just barely containing my wild excitement. I want to laugh with relief and feel your lips curve up in a smile against the skin of my neck.
And I love you,
I love you,
I love you.
It's these moments when I am absolutely on top of the world that I want to share with you. I want you to laugh and tease me and call me a nerdy little bookworm and your baby girl and then kiss me all over so that I am pulled in a thousand directions at once. I want to absolutely unwind in your arms, but you hold me so tightly that I'm never afraid

You took off your mask,
and bared it all,
Showing a side of you,

Trust and honesty, loyalty and heart,
That is what I have found in you,
Something so rare and beautiful
This is why I will treasure

For no masks were involved,
No persona's in play,
Just two people talking,
Being honest from the heart
So from me to you,

To guard the treasure that

For what we have found
is rare but true,
Something so special

On top thousand pairs of wings.
Dancing petals spilled above,
Specks of transparent eyes.
Lovely here the soft tasteless snow
The snowflakes dancing to the ground.
The shrouded moon glinting good.
Death hands in the air
And I pray that roses rise
Over your body.
I cannot cry cannot say sorry
Because I am not.
Demons are meant to kill.

My midnight claws;
Your screams agonized
That bloody night.
And your love for me
Became your death.

A numb robot in need of spare parts
But when I chance a glance
Into those well-lashed brown eyes
All of the painful taunts and lies
Are blown apart
And my heart is renewed.
It feels like my heart is being kicked into the ground
So painful and loud is each pound
My world is a blurred watercolor
Every moment with you makes it fuller.
They say constantly staring makes it obvious
But how can I hide my dreams of an 'us'?
Through the dark trees streams of my love for you beam
One smile and my world is torn at the seams
I don't know how to feel, what to say
I can only hope for us to be together someday.
They say it's so improbable, but in my mind
I feel everything will be fine
And what happen will happen as it may
I'll accept whatever price there is to pay
For my love of you.
I'll accept whatever price there is to pay
I'll get there someday
Because I do
I love you.

Cloud my dreams with your wicked design.
Ensnare my mind with your blacken haze
Transfix my eyes with your phantom gaze.

The pain doth show.
Confound by all, I love it so.
Engulf my soul and cradle my fears
Rain down on me with your nightfall tears.
Whisper to me your notions of death
Prey onto me with every waking breath.
The cold winds blow
The blood doth flow.
Enticed by all, I love it so.
Perchance I scream from your soothing touch
Constrict my heart in your velvet clutch.
Slay me softly the way that you do
All that I love resides within you.
The shadows grow
The world doth go.
Yet tell me why I love it so.

I'm actually breaking.
It's truly hard to even breathe.
How would you know?
Hearts don't make a sound when they break.
I swallow my tears, I choke in them,
but you still won't know
because smiles cover them all.
You see on the outside I'm impenetrable
a stone you can't break,
so you hit me, with words,
words that you know will hurt me.
My soul is on the ground screaming for help
asking to be saved,
is it too much for you to take?
you can tell I'm still okay,
I still breathe (but breathing never felt so suffocating)
and most of all, I still s m i l e.
but like I said
Hearts don't make a sound when they break.
I wonder why my heart isn't made of crystals,
I know it's weak as one.
That way you'll know when it's breaking,
that way you'll know when I'm in pain,
that way I would be able to breathe
maybe feel I am strong enough to get through this grieve
but my heart is just like everybody else's.

I now have found my tears again.
I walk once more in shadowed lanes
as nightmares blank give way to pain.
And, now the ink more freely flows,
inside, the darkened canker grows,
the silence swells its crashing din
and sorrow rears its head within
the breast that long was crushed & numb:
no longer to that void succumbed.
Instead, my heart is tossed & reels:
its throbbing pulse afresh I feel.

beneath every pore;
the desolate sensation in general.
The scrutiny that she has stored,
is beginning to decay,
and give way to all of the things,
it pains her to hide within herself.
She's become an empty bucket,
and misery trickles into her one drop at a time;
a collection she uses as her only vice.
The paranoia that she's beginning to sense,
is finally hitting the surface;
she knows they can see it scrawled all over her.
There's braille on her hips,
because it's easy to feel her every inch;
and she's content with her momentary lapse of apprehension.
No longer does she have a choice,
but to succumb among these worms--
this scum of life itself;
making her way toward the scalding hot

where every memory screams blame-
shame, she glows with it,
shining like a beacon of self-hate.
She swims in the sea of despair
waves of hopelessness wash over her-
she has become a true pain connoisseur,
for she drowns in it, choking down agony.
She dances in the land of the dead
pretty pirouettes spinning in her head-
she is dizzy with stillborn insanity,
quietly raging at a loss she cannot see.
She lives in the state of lunacy
now she sees the devil in the fallacy-
what an enormous lie love can be,
open are her eyes, and it's a trickster she sees.
Now, she bathes in the blood of men
wicked, hurtful they tricked her again-
she loved and lost her mind,
in her heart, it is death they will find.

Can't you see that I am just in love with you
I didn't show it, I should have but I didn't
But still I am in love with you forever
Because you are my view of beauty and my idea of perfection
You are you as simple as that
And you made me fall for you
With you half smiles and your messy hair, with your good advices and with your sense of humour
You just had me, In a heartbeat
I love you forever and always

Even though we both agreed not to start another mess.
Its better for me to remember you by what made you one of the best,
And forgive myself for all the times I made you detest.
I'll remember you as the sweet voice comforting me through the phone,
But don't remember me as a cancer that wouldn't ever leave you alone
I'll remember you as the warmth in my arms as I say hello,
So don't remember me as the child who cried every time you said goodbye.
Everything started off as an accident maybe,
And maybe it ended because we were both a little too crazy;
I'd tell you stupid things and made you ungodly angry,
And I'd get you angrier by saying "I love you and all your personalities",
Time would pass by maybe an hour or two,
You would call me back and say "We love you too".
I'll remember you and I'll remember the times,
So please don't forget me, don't forget the times,
Please don't forget how I'm sorry I couldn't pay you back,
Lets forget the love t

I am just so damn tired.
Tired of trying, tired of living, tired of being.
It seems as though even taking up space requires tremendous effort these days.
What happened to that lively, happy, carefree little girl?
Where did she go?
If she purposefully hiding from me?
Is she trying to teach me a lesson?
Because I UNDERSTAND!
I understand that life is hard.
And, well, it sucks.
But why cant I still be that person?
Who says I cant be happy?
Because obviously, someone is assuming that.
And I don't think I can prove them wrong by myself.
I need help.
But there's no one there anymore.
There's just an empty chair, and unfilled spot, a hole, where you once were.
You took a part of me with you when you went.
And I don't know how to get it back.
Because I am not asking for your help.
You said you were done with me.
You had had your fill.
You didn't need anything else.
You got what you wanted and left me standing there, alone.
So why do I still want

And I would have sworn
I grew angel wings.
Your wounds were never healed,
I failed, and I'm sorry.
I'm never enough and I know it.
I tried, darling.
Believe me, I did.
You always told me
how much you wanted to fly,
and you could do it,
I knew you could.
But the one with the wings was me,
and all I know is falling,
because that's all I ever did.
I wish I could reach you,
now that you stopped falling
you're too far above me.
And my wings are broken
(I'd blame you,
but it wouldn't be fair.
I insisted on fixing you,
when I was even more broken)
I'll miss you.
Don't look for me in heaven.
You won't find me there.
I'm right below the bottom,
where the broken burn,
where I belong.
Because you know I'm afraid of heights,
and you know I never learnt how to fly.
All I do is fall,
and I refuse to take you with me.
