Hiding in my closet
With my doll in my arms
I close my eyes and
Cover my ears, and
Pretend that nothings happened
Usually daddy just hits
Mommy once or twice,
But I keep hearing her
Screaming and she begs
Him to stop, I
Hear him say that he
Hates her and he
Wants her to pay
I whisper a prayer for mommy
Because I don't know
What to do, suddenly
I start to cry and
Hope God helps her soon
I hear mommy give a scream so loud
Then it's silent....quiet as a mouse
I slowly come out of my closet
And start looking around the house
There I see mommy
On the kitchen floor,
Lying face down with
Blood all around her
I cry so

In the dark I hide
Under the bed
As I watch his
Shadow go by
He's looking for me
So he shuts the bedroom door
He doesn't want me
To escape like I did before
These chills running
Up my spine, are
Causing me to panic
And cry at the same time
Daddy said he
Would stop drinking
Daddy promised that
He would try, but
I guess everything Daddy said
Was nothing more then a lie
When Daddy gets drunk
He goes crazy and
Hits and screams
He beats mommy
Until she's unconscious
Then he goes looking for me
I hear his footsteps
Throughout my room
He looks through my closet
"EMMA WHERE ARE YOU!?"

There once was a girl
Who was all alone
She used to be happy
Until taken out of
Her comfort zone
She built up walls
They were so tall,
They could reach the sky
She didn't want
To hear the world
And all of its lies
Every day was the same
Tears in the morning and
Tears at night
What was there for her
Besides unhappiness and spite?
She hated the world
She hated herself
She hated everything alive
She just wanted the
Pain to stop, she
Just wanted to die
What future did she have
Nothing but tears and sorrow
Every day would be the same
Because every day was tomorrow
But in her heart
There is still a little
Drop of hope

Over the next few weeks, Roy and Rose began to look forward to seeing each other. They'd pass notes by sticking them in between the pages of books they'd pass back and forth.
Roy was beginning to realize that she was abnormal. One day, he'd been stressed about school work, adn she'd said exactly what he needed to hear. Sometimes, she'd answer a question before he'd ask them, or hum the same song he was thinking about.
He was coming up with a plan. He had to know how she was doing it.

Find someplace else to haunt instead
There's other places for you to be
There's other sights that you could see
The head that you are now pestering
Is really not all that interesting
You are such a giant pet peeve!
Please, won't you just take your leave?
We had some good times but mostly bad,
There's better times that's to be had
So let us go our separate ways
Never meet again, not another day
Okay bye now, ciao ciao,
It's been, well, bad while it lasted,
Hurry, another line's to be casted
Go now, I will help you pack
As long as you leave and never come back.
The Fallen OneI see a fallen angel without any wing,The Fallen One2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
falling behind in a foolish comedy.
Lunging for life, revenge, and passion,
feeling his self shattered in repression.
This fallen angel has got long brown hair,
ending in a curl, like a circle of death.
He is destroying his soul with grief,
but winner or loser, he will see the defeat.
This fallen angel has lost his kindness,
he is surrendering every day at the claw of madness.
A torture, he says, when they recall his past,
the truth is that his fear is the chance being the last.
A fallen angel whose rancor leads to doom,
a guilty one, sealed inside a loop.
When he fell from his god's sight,

of their green foliage splendor,
the sky becomes a steely gray
in anticipation of cold Winter.
After Winter's frosts have chilled,
only the bravest birds still sing
until the sun breaks across the sky
and ushers in beautiful Spring.
After Spring makes the world bright,
she waits for a more luminous comer.
The world is green and days grow longer
with the arrival of scorching Summer.
After Summer's warm days unfold
the rivers run dry to the bottom.
A bountiful harvest waits in the fields
for the entrance of colorful Autumn.

They live to communicate.
They live for company.
They live for love.
They want only to be accepted.
They live to laugh,
And to smile.
To feel good.
To show off their best qualities.
To be superior.
To be competitive.
To be the attention.
To be lively and charming.
To not acknowledge that anything bad can happen.
To live in a dream.
As there are few to prove the opposite.
Those live to be quite and to themselves.
They live to not care.
They don't live to laugh or smile.
They don't live to have feelings or to show off qualities.
They don't live to be lively or charming
They simply don't want attention.

Here comes the freak!
Deeper, deeper, deeper -
I'm getting to bottom of soul.
Pictures - cute and creepy,
It's my memory all.
The corridor of silence,
The corridor of noise...
And here he is. The lightnings
Show him from hair to toes.
I know this face, this silent
And scared, and saddest gaze.
When he is out, the violent
Call him the big disgrace.
He hid himself inside me -
For getting out he's meek...
He's part of me, though hiding.
He is the one called freak.
- Freak! Freak! Freak!
Everyone beat the freak!
I cannot hide him all now.
I'm reaching out to him -
He is the part of me. How?

It'll cry and cry always wanting to die
But the end of my lie, all your wants to deny
In the howl and the mourn, total agony to scream
How you wish this torment ends, and to wake from your dream.
Oh how beady are your eye, have you started to cry?
To deny all your pain, can you even ask why?
With your knitted lip straight, through my anger and hate.
Is your damnation then written, by the ones we call fate?
When it hurts for you most, its end enrages me
Till I set all your stuffing to fly high and free
My claws and my palm, all matted with your fur
In the end of it all, no one knows who you were.

Sing myself a lullaby as I think of him.

Trying to smile.
He showed me the greatest thing of this world.

On the way out the door one cold morning.
They mean so much inbetween.
Whispered skin rushed against one another,
Arms held across each other.
Secrets float through the air,
You don't want to let go-
You fear the moment when you watch the person dissapear.
You want them in your arms once more-
Wishing you could whisper that you care,
That you love them.
The memory of their perfume lingers on your clothes.
You try not to cry-
When the hug turns into a silent good bye.
You watch the luggage pile up.
The house divided with coloured sticky notes-
The car holding everything you loved,

Or, snap me back
Show me the path
Tell me the truth
Cut my throat
Or, cut out all of the stories lies
Alice can only walk in her wonderland
Before reality over comes her
Stab me in the back
Or, scream your truths in my face
You are now the root
Of a new agonizing fear
Hang me to suffocate
Or, hang out the old photos and give me a reason
to stop and ponder, and wonder once more
The reason behind your actions
Overdose me till I can take no more
Before I choke on the words of the next lie
You planted the seeds of hate
Knowing full wll what you were doing
Let me "slip" and fall off this cliff
Before I fall

I mean someone has to.
I look in the mirror and all I see,
Is someone ugly.
No matter how hard I try,
And no matter what I say or do,
I mess everything up.
Nothing goes right,
Everything goes wrong.
I can't do anything right.
I want to please everyone,
If I can't be happy then
I should at least make others happy.
I mess everything up.
I can't make anyone happy.
I hate myself.
So do me a favor,
And hate me too.
Because if you hate me,
Then I don't have to hate myself.

I was dreaming in the dark
and I heard your beating heart,
it was pounding in my head.
So I looked all around, but
you were no where to be found
so I sat in a corner and wept
Could you believe I fell
asleep under the moon's spotlight?
But when I woke up it disappeared
out of sound and sight. As I searched
for the stars, I stumbled and bumped my head
and so I woke up in a dream as blood
drips down my forehead.
I was dreaming in the dark
and found pieces of your love
scattered across the ground.
Together I placed them back and began
to realize that it's all a dream, this is

Focus lost on the sick site,
While fire leaks out the headlights.

Wireless brains recoil.
Infected eyes look to paralyze;
Let the maggots eat you alive.
Skull ridden with good times.

And try to mirror this life.

They seek you in majesty.
They look at mountains and see the ridges of your thumbprint.
They cry your praise when you paint the autumn.
They throw open their hearts to the sun.
They marvel as the cold kernel stirs to life.
But you are in the bitter days as well,
the afternoons so dull I could weep.
You are the maker of anthills as well as mountains,
and the stately wake of the single crackled leaf.
You drew the colour from the sunset and breathed grey fog.
You kill some seeds, barren rocks that litter the ground and will never grow.
You are in despair as well as in triumph -- per

What is it you're pursuing?
When you know that ice cream won't numb the pain
No matter how cold, you'll just gain
Heart ache and pounds.
And don't drink the rounds
I know you want to feel alive
This isn't how you survive
Don't count on the fairy tales
Can't focus on how you failed.
Girl, he isn't coming back
It's his fault, he's off track
You need to wake up and realize
It isn't you who won't open their eyes.
I know you think he'll show
But the truth is, you gotta let go.
This is life, and lesson learned
That we gotta heal after burned.
When you lay there and think
The lower you, sink

Sing to me quietly

Sing a song with meaning

Sing to me fondly

Sing to me passionately

Sing to me bravely
I don't care how you sound
Sing to me softly

Now sing to me darling
Sing with love
Sing until I feel as beautiful

Who stood there whenever I want to
Who came every time I need you, even if I don't call you
Who keeps my secrets in the depth of the hearts
who never leaves
always obeys me
knows the best of every thing...
I remember everything
you get mad, you get jealous...
Even when you don't need to...
You taught me, prevented me from doing things
Accompanied me along, remained silent,
Reject my offers, saying ghosts don't eat,
when you're not one
you don't want to lose me
you helped me make decisions
you tried to make me do the best of everything
made me try harder
even if I didn't want to...
