When you open your mouth
Your words are in tears.
If you look deep enough, You'll see what I see.
Your eyes are screaming, "Please! Someone, help me!"
It won't take a minute,
not even a second
But it may take a lifetime realization
To even begin to settle.
Look far past the words I write
and look back to what you've just read.
To listen is to see;
To see is to listen.
So don't try to understand if you cannot see the damage.
Don't try to fix something without the consent of the problem.
If you listen to your heart, You close your eyes and feel it beat.
When you think hard enough, your eyes start to twitch.
UntoldYou will never know how much something or someone means to you until they're gone. It always takes a hint of sadness for you to realize how happy life can be. So take these words and drown them in your heart. Keep them far from the surface but still reachable by hand. For the day will come when someone will force themselves upon you and into your life. You will not like it, not at all but you will soon enough realize how much they've touched your life and how much you've touched theirs. And you will create a bond that is unbreakable; neither by death nor life. So never take each other for granted for ones true feelings will never show, yes, not even 'till death. For the greatest stories have never been told but instead, have been found and heard by simple passer bys or sadden hearts. So think not that the world hates you, you have a lot of people loving you but you will never know it for they will never tell you. Take life into your hands and welcome it with warmth; treat it like a booUntold4 years ago in Emotional More Like This

Play the Chords
That speak of dying pleasure
Can you see it now?
Here, take a better look
You should see the crow
So lost in the nook
patched up with tapes
All is well
Though, just an escape.

Symptoms you say?
Uncertainty has paid,
though with a balance insufficient
there are damages left to pay.
All it takes is a strong face to show,
strong words to strike
and feelings to hide.
I've gone by with this line
and have lived to see the lies.
It's a life I'm not entirely proud of, for it fills me with so much uncertainty. Yet for some reason, I really don't get why, I would never change my way not even for a day. Most people just don't get it. Mistakes are made for us to learn and victory is temporary, we shouldn't dwell too much into it as well as our sorrow. Uncertainty has paid a price so high and the damages made have justified it's price. But with hope left to linger on there's still a chance to make it through. Focus is what's at stake; no shortcuts nor hesitation just keep following through. Though, somehow I'm hoping that my weakness would peak through but my develop

And it makes me wonder how long this has been.
I lie awake and think "was this really for me?"
'Cause it doesn't sound like you,
Reality is you're not nice, you're mean
But I can't help but smile
'Cause it still means something to me.
So I'll just sit on this pile
And let things continue to be.
So I'll read it one last time
and think that you meant it.
Even though your words don't rhyme
It's like this apple I just bit
I loved it.
