OptimismDream away another day,
Shining eyes, cheerful tunes,
Starlight shines, darkness stays
Beyond the shadows of the moon.
Misty showers stain the skies
An arc comprised of many colours
From grey depths, begins to rise,
Before the eyes of wonderous others
Water flows to reach the sand
Carrying many shining jewels
Escaping through one's fragile hands
'Tis the act of many fools.
Close your eyes for they shant speak,
Clasp your hands, a final prayer
The young know miracles in the world,
The wise know why and where.

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.
A Story With No EndA black tunnel.A Story With No End4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A pure white dress.
A few blue tears.
A lonely girl.
A few loud steps.
Someone's strong hand.
I turn to you.
You are lost, too.
You twine your fingers with my cold digits.
I look up at you as your love by a heart reveals.
I start to feel warmth from something,
In this Godforsaken, darkened tunnel.
We walk through this tunnel,
Hand in hand.
We guide ourselves through black,
Hand in hand.
We face hard obstacles,
We search for the gold end,
Then you start to fall and I can just watch.
I cry out to you as my vision by tears funnels.
I start to feel love for someone,
In this Godforsaken, broken tunnel.
The story hasn't stopped.
I don't want it to.
I won't let you go,
because I love you.
I'll pick you up,
And keep us moving.
We will find happiness.
With this song, I'll keep singing.
When you feel too weak,
I'll give you all my strength.
When you cannot speak,
I'll give you my whole voice.
I want to find happiness with you.
We walk through this tu

alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.

Let me die,
It hurts to live,
Let me die,
My soul to give.
I want to die,
Give me rest,
I don't want to try,
Just a bullet in the chest.
Every acrid breath makes sweet death,
Like the gentle touch of a lovers caress.
Let me die,
I beg you please,
Pain and disease
Are only a tease.
Give me a place,
Where I can be free,
Where demons wont chase,
And torture me

Screaming at me,
clawing at every inch
of my body.
That little voice inside my head
sounding strangely like my own,
tearing me down,
from the inside.
Each hate-filled blow,
hits harder than the last.
Each self-inflicted cut,
hidden in shame,
nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,
visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.
little dotted lines drawn
over every flawed bit of me.
Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch
within my being.
Why can't I be beautiful?

Five more cuts.
They won't show, and they will fade.
It's nothing. It's nothing.
It makes me feel normal.
I need punishment for every time I mess up.
Don't worry I won't die.
"I wish she would keep better track of things" one more cut.
"She is a freak" two more cuts.
"You don't care about anything do you?!" three cuts.
Some say it hurt.
Some say it's nothing.
Sure I thought I could talk to her about it, but now my only true friend is drifting.
She knew every thing about me, cutting, crying, depression, and so on. But, as I see her go.
Now we just say simple Hello's.
It's time she stopped dealing with me.
She has her own problems.
So what's five more cuts?
It just adds to the many.
Though there be fear with the cutting.
After this feeling of release, there comes fear.
'What if I can't stop?'
'What if they find out?'
'What if I kill myself?'
My wrist is throbbing now.
It wants the knife, it wants the blood.
I need help.
It's not the cat anymore.
It never was.

Bored of the same old routine,

Would you chase time

When all you do is fall,

There's always a door,

Opportunities are endless.

And wishes she could

She walks into a world of wonder.
Curiouser and curiouser.
And even though
curiosity often leads to trouble,
she feels safe.
When she drowns in her fears
and gets out wet in pain.
She gets dry by running in circles

Chased by illusions,
always in a hurry,
where are you now
She finds out,
that even illusions are there
just to change her state of mind.
Confusing it is, she knows.
Not even her mind is a safe place.

Just yesterday you were holding my hand,
Just yesterday you gave me a wedding band,
Just yesterday you said I do and,
Just yesterday you said you loved me too.
Just yesterday you told me you cared,
Just yesterday you told me about the love we shared,
Just yesterday you said you'd never leave and,
Just yesterday that was all I needed to believe.
Just yesterday you were near,
Just yesterday they told me something I did'nt want to hear,
Just yesterday they buried you deep and,
Just yesterday thoughts of you kept me from sleep.
Just yesterday I finally came to see you,
Just yesterday I missed you more than I usually do and,
Just yesterday I remembered again how much I need you.
Just yesterday has come and gone and,
Just yesterday is just a memory of all that went wrong.

So many times
Can't seem to get it right
You never die.
Really how much intelligence does this take?
Not much but then your lacking it in the first place
I know where to cut
But not which veins to drain
I'm such a looser my own life I can't take
Just start slashing, pretty soon in your blood you'll be basking
I've tried too many times to count

Why do I keep it all inside? My pain getting harder to hide.
I used to be cheery, it used to be real.
But now it's different, and they're making some big deal.
Saying "Why are you so sad?" and "You look depressed."
Can't you just leave me alone, let it rest?
So maybe I've changed...what's that got to do with you?
Just because I've changed? Well maybe you have too.
Let GoThe body, it screams, shakes violently, falls,Let Go4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Clenching inside, tears of anger, they roll,
The blood red devil, itself, he calls,
Uncontrollable limbs, splinter sharp as they break,
The heart, tearing lungs, it rips and it aches,
Taming the monster inside with a stake,
Ear piercing echoes follow around,
Crushing the bones as they slam on the ground,
The girl, so innocent, her crimson surrounds,
Tongues whisper silent curses unknown,
The head, it pounds with each word being moaned,
Dark red tears fall down below,
I've let go.

As I lay fragmented and broken
He destroyed what was left of my heart
Casting me into eternal darkness,
For so long I've searched for a way to escape,
Only to be surrounded by this inky blackness
Everything was dismal, nothing made sense
Everywhere I turned, I was surrounded by pain
And all of it came from making a deal with him,
The beautiful devil with the cold, wicked eyes
Same dark smile that haunts me still
Out of nowhere, you appeared to me,
Sent from beyond the realm of dreams
And I was the one who cast you away.
But you hunted me, tracked me down
Using our hearts as a guide
To find your way back to me
It is indescribable, but I will try.
Your scent sends chills through me,
With a voice that breathes life into
My abused, broken soul;
Your touch amazes me with every breath
And when you look at me with those eyes,
My entire world stops
Only for you.
I want to share this feeling with the world,
Yet I do not know how to name

I hear the wolves as they echo through
Darkest hour of the brightest light of night,
Nothing could ever be as dark as you
And what you are to me
What are you to me?
I merely blinked,
As I was eaten alive
Consumed by your hatred
And bled out of such rage.
I've only a single word for you:
Run as far from me,
And as fast as you can;
Else I should catch you
And devour all that is
A thousand ways to fight this feeling,
I shouldn't feel it.
I've never felt that I was human
Surely I must be a monster,
Fighting this monstrous voice inside,
The sound of instinct;
What the hell am I?
I catch your scent on the wind
And know only one thing:
That I must go to you.
Clawing my way past,
Nothing will stand in my way.

Are you lonely ?
Lost within such a Labyrinthine heart,
Ruling from somewhere up so high,
Glaring down at me with those eyes
There you stand,
So opaque and obscure
With all the little pieces of us,
Twinkling in the distance,
Cannot fill the spaces between
Those that separate our hearts.
And I can't even say your name,
I wish I could just tell you
Someday I will find the strength
To say these words to you
What are you really playing at?
The ballad of a cutterDream of marks being dug into my chest, Cutting into my flesh once again.The ballad of a cutter7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In places where not many lately save one could testify to have been.
It's rather gruesome, this recurring dream.
I want to watch my body bleed., The pain, it sooths me as nothing
Ever has. Tried being good, too caught up In being bad.
I want to see and feel the flesh being peeled From my skin.
I want it so bad, cause pain takes away every feeling.
Leaves me devoid of devotion to anything but
The simple act of drowning out my very emotions.
My tale has been told many times before, In the eyes of those forever unsure,
The young and the old, and the somewhere in between.
Some of us yes, we crave to bleed free. It's scary to hear, if you've never felt it,
But most of us, we prefer to be dealt it. Try it once and you'll see why we like it.
Adrenalines a rush, but pain's got a bite to it. Bloody and raw is when my skin looks best,
Covered in blood, from the slashes on my breast.
The wrists are too easy, and some do goo
