Sin Of Your Love
Have you ever needed someone
As if they were air?
Have you ever loved someone so much
The idea of living without them
Nearly kills you?
That's how I love you
Maybe I'm an addict
To the wild, crazy
Sin of your love
Yeah, maybe I'll go to hell
But I don't care
I need this
I need you
The pain only worsens
Each one longer and longer
I need you
And there is nothing
You could ever do-
That would make me
Love you any less
There's no rehab for my drug
Will always be
The sin of your love
Am I Good Enough...?Legs crossed on a cold basement floor,Am I Good Enough...?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Blood stains painting my flesh,
The wounds deeper than ever before,
A white gown now a short black dress.
Long tangled hair clinging to my tears
Wind howling through the trees,
Moonlight painting a sky so clear,
And darling, I'm going to be set free.
My fingers scratch at the blood on my skin,
A delightful pain at the thought of a touch,
And hey, everyone who said I wasn't worth it,
Now am I good enough?

I may change, sometimes for the worst.
What's normal to me is not normal for you.
Sometimes I just do what I need to do.
Behind a brick wall, I hoped someone would break it
I threw out my heart hoping someone would take it.
But I got tired of hiding and tired of hating
And instead of throwing myself at every guy, I'm waiting.
I'm sick of the person I tried to be
So basically, here I am, I will be me
I'm sick of the hatred, would you not agree?
.. Basically I'm sick of society.

I am a labelI slid the blade across my wristI am a label3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Again and again.
Maybe I’m an emotional freak.
I cause fights and arguments
Maybe I’m a troublemaker.
I use make up to make myself seem
Maybe I’m girly.
I complain about things
Even when sometimes
Maybe I’m an attention seeker.
I fall under so many
So maybe I am a label.
I’m just me.

not just any, but a rose.
So delicate but filled with thorns
a tribute to the bodies torn.
Upon this spot the soil knows
of beings lost to senseless wars.
Angry people caring not
of lives destroyed and carnage wrought.
Summer days turned darkest skies
by mournful wails and babies cries.
Fought in vain for senseless gain
of oil, power, foolish schemes.
Butchered as the lambs in spring
gone forever hopes and dreams.
Fallen hard upon this place
the mindless chasm filled with waste,
left to bleach in searing sun
the bones of those claimed by no one.
The flesh returns into the dust
which with the rain becomes the crust.
Broken into tiny bits
a seed of hope to fall on it.
The song of peace shall fill the land
spread forth by Gods almighty hand,
and gently placed upon the ground
with angels singing all around.
The seed is placed,
for heaven knows,
upon this spot,

Mommy, he said it, he said "I love you."

Mommy, please know how to think, how i feel
Mommy, this love is the truth, it's the way
Mommy, he said it, he said it today.
Mommy, he's lying, he's lying to me
Mommy, he's telling a lie, can't you see?
Mommy, he never did mean what he said
Mommy, his voice is pounding in my head.
Mommy, he's lying, his love isn't pure
Love's a disease and he's finding the cure.
Mommy, he's lying, what else can I say...
Mommy, he hit me, he killed me today.
Mommy, he lied to me, why did he lie?
Mommy, he lied through his tears, through his cries
Mommy, his lies I just couldn't see through
Mommy, he lied to me.

I lost my way, you found me, but left me alone in a strange place.
I reached out to you for help, you offered your hand, then pulled it away.
I followed your rules, you applauded my effort, then wrote new ones.
I was sinking in quicksand, you pulled me out with a stick, then beat me with it.
I was stabbed in the back, you pulled out the knife, then plunged it into my heart.
I decided to quit, you begged me to stay, then fired me.
I stood at the edge, you gave me reason not to jump,
then you picked me up,
and threw me off.

And I have a scar by my left eye.
I’m not allowed to smile, though
And I’m not allowed to cry.
I think my right arm’s broken
But shh, don’t tell my dad.
He doesn’t like to worry bout me
When he’s already mad.
I have a burn on my left wrist
From when he pushed my arm
Against the stove, the hot, hot stove
And did a bit of harm.
I have a bear, a teddy bear.
He doesn’t have a name.
He makes me better every time
I’m feeling hurt and shame.
Today, my dad came home kind of late
A beer still in his hand.
I closed my eyes and waited.
He screamed, he shouted, and…
Well, my name is Mary Starr
And this is how I died.
But daddy always loved me.
And daddy always lied.

I'm so tired of being here, suppressed by all my childish fears
His presence was always there, always around me, always reminding me.
And if you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave
Your presence still lingers here and it won't leave me alone
The two roses were clutched so tightly in my hands, the thorns buried deep into my palm. I ignored the pain as I walked, already knowing where I was headed for.
These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
I felt her coming again, she was close. She was sad.
When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
She still had my rose with her, always.
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

all of the dreams

To live a life
of complete satisfaction
To take the time
for space in mind
to make the final thought.
Go to the place

Just make the choice
to pick the place

Slit your wrist
Cried yourself to sleep
Wished yourself gone
Chased a dream (and lost it)
Ended up in a nightmare…
Turned away from your “friends”
Tortured yourself over an error
If you are a victim…
Remember to stay strong.
Because you’re only a survivor
No Longer a Little GirlDear imagination, can't you be the thing you wereNo Longer a Little Girl3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Butterflies and daffodils and happiness so pure
Sunny skies and lullabies and dreams of what could be
Hidden worlds and wonderlands of things they couldn't see
Shining gowns and silver crowns for dancing with the prince
Twirling with excitement, though the others weren't convinced
Dear intimidation, did you find it to be true
All I ever needed was an overdose of you
Silly stares and laughter slowly flood a child's mind
Making me abandon every daydream I could find
Lost beneath the shadows of the sky so dark and dead
Far too weak to turn around, yet scared of things ahead
Dear destructive tendencies, I feel it's time to hear
You were all I had when nothing else seemed to be near
Everything so out of reach, too far for me to see
I decided I would choose the needle next to me
Slicing through my very skin to feel something once more
Weeping through the satisfaction I could not ignore
Dear imagination, can't you be the thing you were?

Its the razor blade under their pillow.
The end of a toothbrush covered in bile,
Even a loaded gun stashed in your closet that was somehow 'misplaced'.
Its only the name of a crush scribbled over and over on a crumpled piece of paper,
The quiet whispers of where you snuck out to last night.
How you really passed that test.
Its the innocent sayings that hurt the most,
Pent up emotion that cuts the deepest
Your kin by blood that deal the killing blows.
Yet you continue to let them close enough to see the pain in your eyes,
Under the false hopes that instead of pushing you away,
They would accept you for what you are.
A monster of your own creation.
Don't try to change a creature of habit,
Never trust the wind to break your fall,
Promise you won't hide from something that is truly blind to reality.
Each person shouldn't have to change their ways
In order to be accepted by a society

Treasuring the very thought of anyone's demise
Glitter fades to black and shining moonlight fades to dust

And take a step back.
Clear your mind,
And think logically here.
Sure he looks like him,
And they have the same name.
But there is something different,
Something odd about him.
The way he dresses,
The way he acts.
The way he says my name,
The way he randomly shows up.
Don't get me wrong,
I like this new side to him.
But still part of me is wondering,
Why and how?
And just when I thought,
I had finally figured him out.
He shows up this morning,
With a rose in hand.
I will always be by your side,
He said with a smile.
My heart skips a beat,
And my breathe draws short.
While I do miss the cool brooding look of his,
I think I can fall for this new look.
This could just be a dream,
But if I never awake,
I think that I will happy here,
No matter what.

As we kiss,
I stick my tounge,
Right thorugh her lips...
I let my tounge,
Explore her mouth,
Her tounge meets mine,
Meets in her mouth...
I press my tounge,
Against her teeth,
I feel the metal,
Along her teeth...
I pull my tounge,
From her teeth,
I press my tounge,
Against her cheek...
We lay like that,
For but a sec,
When then she jumps,
Into my lap...
I can feel her,
Pressed in my lap,
Her cheeks are soft,
Against my rock...
I sit like that with her,
For quite a bit,
Never would have guessed,
But this is it...
Happiness has found me,
Has found me,
So let the past be the past...
And let her feel my sexy wrath <3
Gun Within The MirrorIt feels as if my reflectionGun Within The Mirror2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Points a gun at its own head,
As my bullet shoots the mirror
And paints the floor with red,
And it feels as if my gun
Just isn't steady in my hand,
Because darling, when I jump off cliffs,
Do you think I always land?
It feels as if the razor blade
Might be my only friend,
And it feels as if the broken glass
Might soon begin to bend,
Because my reflection is distorted, love.
Can't you see that, love, can't you see?
I'm pointing a gun at the mirror,
And the mirror points back at me.

My feet making footprints in the sand under the sun
I want to go far away, to a place where I'm unknown
A quiet place, a safe place where happiness can be shown
I yearn to get away, to escape
But I suppose this world is only what you make
So tell me this; can I rip up my current strong and draw forth a new page?
Just in order to break free of this terrible cage
I have done my time, paid my price
Now it's time for me again to roll the dice
To take chances, make mistakes and just live
I gave you all I have to give
So now it's my turn to be happy, the furutre draws near
And the skies- oh the skies- they're looking ever so clear
