I'll never tell you, but I believe if you weren't here I'd choke and claw my eyes out. You are my tears when I can't find the strength to cry and you are there when I want to burst out laughing for no reason.
You allow me to change my mask whenever I please and whenever it suits me and you don't judge me or remind me of how selfish I am. I always count on you to be by my side because you know me and my flaws and you just smile at my pitiful attempt to hide them. You always give me a hand at whatever silly plan to change the world I have this week, even if we both know it just stupid.
And every day, when I see your cocky smile, I

Give me Pleasure.
You know that for my love there is no measure.
Make me write another line!
Whisper with your voice divine!
Words are spilling on the floor.
Let me beg you here for more.
My aching fingers start to shiver,
my head is burning from the fever.
I'm lying here with the blurry sight
of the sinner who has given up the fight.
Still crumbling I wonder why
my thoughts can only fly
when you're touching with your eyes
my mind and mortifying my lonely cries.
Drink up all the mirthless rage.
Help me turn the other page.
Don't run from me, please stay.

Morrissey/Marr-A Light That Will Never Go OutI enter the drab hotel room to find him asleep on the single bed: shabby leather notebook still in hand; a bottle of lousy, cheap Israeli champagne on the withered side table, a ring of condensation forming around its base. The cork was out, and half a slightly chipped mug was full of its tacky innards.Morrissey/Marr-A Light That Will Never Go Out10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
A mug. Morrissey probably laughed at the irony of drinking champagne out of one; he'll probably use it as a lyric-compare it to class in society, or something.
Champagne-what was he celebrating? "Himself" is the most likely answer. I screw up my eyes and peer at the unintelligible squiggles that form his handwriting. Something about a light

My age is unknown
My location does not exist
Day by day I see men fall
I see buildings demolished
And cities evacuated
I see the self-indulgence
And disgust in men all around me
When they fall I am there
I see their bloodshed on the wall
I see brains spew
Im there when throats are slashed
I am there when everything goes wrong
I'm there because I have to be
I'm there because it's my job
I'm the one that stops the screaming
No one can catch me
Because Im a civilian
A civilian who has hundreds of jobs
The one who goes missing without a trace

Just to see myself properly

mushrooms and candles line smoky hallways
pheromones and dreams are the incense here
swirling fans and falling rain sing to the
night, as ivy curls around musty toys
and adele and anjulie duet
from crackling speakers lodged under books
glitter and pearls and a sun or two
float, cloud-like, in the far ceiling corners
colours invert and revert tactlessly
and my eyes, like in fever, grow heavy
and too hot, while ears pop and migraines roar
and I wake and sleep again and dream once

Violets are blue so are my lips,
No one knows that I'm alive,
I'm trapped in unseen chains,
There is nothing I can do,
I just want to be free from them,
Those who trade me for money,
Who beat me and stave me,
They promised a bright future,
Not bondage and isolation,
Someone save me................
.. You are with a loved one,
Watching films and eating meals,
They force themselves upon me,
Without hesitation they leave me bleeding,
In a curled up ball I just want to die,
Why do they disgrace me like this?
I'm so worthless why do I still live?

SpeedWhen the breath escapes andSpeed1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your eyes widen in deep concentration
Your teeth clench in hidden fear
Both eyebrows begin to twitch
You grasp the wheel tightly
The right foot pushes against the floor
The left one is uncertain
But the car is under your control
The surroundings fly by in a blur
There is no sound but the radio
Peripheral vision is a blessing
Otherwise you might crash
It's a rush you've never felt
The speedometer quickly rising
The excitementthe DANGER
The possibility of dying
But you trust yourself
You trust the car
You trust something
You trust FATE
You know there's no way you'll die

Minds dripping like a cheap aconitine trip
Skin melts together in a hot wax rush
Ripping to brilliant shreds to lace into bows
With heat rising thoughts racing to a halt
It's a lovely thrill, ending in shards
Love is an addictive race to heartbreak
That toxifies in the veins
Like crystals blooming underground
You can't hold ties with rotting vines.

covered with snow.
The lampposts refuse to give their light.
Bare trees shake silver dust from their boughs.
I watch at the window
holding a candle in my hand.
Clinging desperately to the illumination.
A single light in the soundless darkness.
Frost gathers on the windowpanes
And snowflakes fall without a sound.
The wind yells to get in
waiting at the bolted door
until the end of winter.

You never know what you'll get
Just that you're only stronger
When you dig your roots down farther
The oak that stands tall through the storm
And the willow that bends and whips its branches
In the end
They're both standing
Each blizzard you weather
Is another layer of bark to your armor
Another year of endurance
To make you stronger
To reach down deeper, darker
Where the crystals and the white roses grow
Sometimes I can close my eyes and smile
Because no matter how bad it gets
The sun will be rising over the hills

To tell me that no matter the hard ship, that it'll get better.Remind me of a brighter day1 year ago in Editorial More Like This

object of longing, of desire, of me. Would I be able to deliver such a spell as
to capture her heart? Oh how I wish it to be so. That everyday would be more
than divine with her. No more petty games of yesterday that would
divide and conquer. No more long nights wishing I wasn't alone. For every
morning to be as simple a dream as this one. For longing of lust, for of love,
is to wish away a dream once, but to never have. Though, to have is not to

Trying to beat the happiness from my life
As high as I go, you force me back
And make me feel so completely hopeless
With your friends called misery and despair
Chipping away at all my hopes and dreams
Thinking you can drag me into the darkness
Leaving me weary and alone and empty
But these beatings only make me stronger
And I have friends of my own now
Through thick and thin they'll stand by me
Together we'll beat you down instead
We'll fix my wings and watch me fly

Or if I'm even still here to meet with again
If you might think I could hurt or kill myself
All simply to wash away my own bits of pain
I'm still here and not quite that weak
I never once meant to hurt or worry you
And I'd like to say now that I'm so sorry

His lips were not hot, not burning with the curious intensity so coveted.
They were cold and inflexible, folded just so in that frigid manner, slightly frowning.
He did not move, arranged so on the robin's egg blue sheet.
He stared unseeingly, frozen hands cramped into a fist.
Neither his eyes nor his skin held colour.
Should his eyes be oceanic or leafy?

Don't need friends
Watch through a lense
Get up, Stand out

Choke what you can't swallow
your peice doesn't fit their puzzle
Just get up, Stand out
And turn around
Solving problems takes more than words
Includes emotion and sweat
raw blood, vicious noise
A terrible silence
A ghost that won't leave
Despair and darkening
Just some words to you
Little things mean something
This is my little thing
Get up and stand out!
