lost at sea.
It's so hard to find words that explain perfection
looking up at me.
Resting your head on my chest,
I start to confess,
"You're more precious then silver,
and as rare as gold."
Butterflies start to tear up my stomach
leaving me with urges that couldn't be controlled.
So we got closer where we could see eye to
asking ourselves if destiny was something we could deny.
In the silhouette of the blank tv screen
I tasted heaven and felt the clouds.
I've never felt this close to you,
not even in a dream.

Dragging it out like a smoker savors the inhales of a cigarette.
The carbon is escaping through the corners of your lips.
Oxygen runs wild through the strands of my golden locks.
Bandit eyes and a smile I stole from a 10 year old girl.
"Ive kept you close in form of a note."
Admitting that lines 1-20 is your bible which you live by.

With the thickest of hearts
and our poor excuses for romantic starts
we'd end up separate
but somewhat equal in the end.
A ceremony we'll never attend
a love letter with a point to intend
that love shouldnt be something to send.
With the quickest of hearts
and our unforgettable favorite parts
we'd end up somewhat together
now and forever....

you caused my heart to flatline?
I remember it all to clear
like my greatest fall with out the fear.
Do you recall the day where everyword
chosen to say and every phrase we dropped
caused us to stay?
I keep this thought on repeat
a thought i wont let go, a thought i want to keep.
Can you think of the months
where we pulled the most unforgettable stunts?
Getting caught kissing under the stars
riding in the backseats of cars.
It was you and i running through summer shocking the world
stunning eveyone in sight.
We had the world as our stage but its time for us to take a bow......

Same time you're thinking
"I can't seriously distress her."
Pushing the door, I'm all mechanical flutters for your masochistic stutters.
You turn slowly, smiling.
You're smiling.. but there are tears in your eyes.
How was I to know that you could still get to me?
You stitch my lips shut so my jaw won't drop.
No "are you ready's".
It's just unstitch and no promises.

Standing on a ledge where tears were shed
I'm borderline and falling fast
There are great things ahead
But I'm trapped by the past
I step off the ledge and begin to fall
Speeding towards the nearing ground
Suddenly my wings snap open to a call
Catching the wind without a sound
Soaring to new heights
Breaking the bonds of "then"
Finding happiness in my sights
Not having to ask "when"
I've found my shining star
My beacon in the night
Guiding me to points so far
Leading me with her guiding light
Cutting me free from the ropes
Causing all pain to cease
Lifting my hopes
Giving me true peace
Taking the first step

When an angel spreads her wings
She shines light upon your heart
When an angel sings
You hope shell never depart
Soft, smooth skin
To be so close is a sin
To think you deserve is arrogance
She casts away the dark
Quieting your screams
Silently leaving her mark
Easing the fire of your dreams
As she reaches for the sun
She lifts the weight from your shoulders
Allows your fears to come undone
Keeping your heart from growing colder
Giving you strength unseen
Opening doors you may have missed
Providing a perch on which to lean
Stealing your ability to resist
Falling to her spell

Porcelain GirlPorcelain Girl9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Alone and trapped
In a rusted world
She sits and waits
This porcelain girl
They tiptoe around her
Afraid she might break
Knowing full well
That her life's at stake
They find out her secret
And throw her in a room
So white and padded
To escape her gloom
She still remains silent
A twisted smile on her face
She's been here before,
She remembers this place
Left with only her thoughts
She just sits there and rocks
A broken porcelain girl
In her nice, padded box
heartSinking feeling weighing me down; drowning my heart.heart1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can't shake this feeling.
My stomach's in a knot, lungs sucked dry.
Heart is drowning in sorrow.
Left alone with uneasy thoughts and words of self-destruction.
Inner demons raping my mind, enclosing themselves upon my weakened body.
My limbs entangled in a spider web of shame.
Heart is breaking, broken, mangled.
Heavy misconceiving judgements shroud the pit of my stomach.
Acid weaving it's way through all my love for you.
My body's aching, walls are tumbling down.
Heart is diseased.
I'm incomplete without you but I just can't let this go.

I've sat in every empty room,
I've walked this cold, hard floor.
What is it I've forgotten?
I had it moments ago, but where?
I see something in a cracked mirror,
I turn, but nothing's there.
I am drowning in the grey fog,
I find this quite distressing.
I cannot see through confusion's shroud,
that is made from second guessing.
Down this spiral staircase I fall,
there is a black hole at the end.
I'm trapped inside it, my mind in ruins,
I cannot see what I could mend.
At first I was so self assured,
then something snapped and the light went out.
I cannot see anything a

Amongst those trees was the house.
Tall and empty, it's shattered windows looked out onto the world like a pair of dull eyes. Susan stood alone. As she looked up at the house from the end of the muddy gravel path that rolled out before her, a shiver flew through her body.
She wanted him to be inside there, needed him almost. The cold of the dawn and the crushing loneliness were slowly getting too much for her. Yet Susan was afraid. As much as she wanted to run inside the house, as much as she wanted

MotherA knot deep in my stomach-Mother4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An unbearable growing pain
Containing breaths and scars,
Momentary intervals of our life's game.
A knot in my throat,
Choking me before the rise,
Depriving us of understanding,
Taking away left time.
A tidal wave devours my skin,
Casting me bare, without a kin-
Without the courage this blast to bare,
Stolen from time,
Convicted to just stare
At every day that passes by,
At my lack of bravery,
My egoistic past wounds drive
Safekeeping me against the ones
I should be the least afraid to love.
A knot is tied around my heart,
Bred inside it for years-
For too damn long for me to claim

Give you my mind, free of your cage
A playground for me to breathe you real
Come with me again on time line's wheel
Do not be afraid to turn the page
Our story has all the moments I hold dear
It's our voices on the wind we hear
All it takes for me to be assuag
