And welcome the straps
Keep your body still
For the needles and tubes
The saddest part is
It's all done at will
Shut your eyes and relax
You'll be beautiful in no time
Darling, you'll look just like wax
I hope you're happy
When you don't look real anymore
When the old pictures, that really aren't that old at all,
Are like a depressing memory that burns at your core
When they no longer have a place on the wall
Because the person in them is no longer you at all
No one wants to be ugly
No one wants to be old
They'll do whatever it takes
To be perfect
They'll do whatever they're told
Don't you know, fake is the new real
No one has a heart, they only have eyes
I know they can still feel
But truth has been forgotten
Between the layers of silicone and lies
They say it's not fair
'Cause I'm still young
But I know what I believe in
And I know what I don't
She unravels her face
She looks just like her doll
Her childhood dream has come true
As the narcotics do just wha

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!?"
He's staggering and swearing
He wants to beat me black and blue
Daddy then screams loudly
"YOU EIGHT YEAR OLD BRAT,
WHERE ARE YOU!?!"
He bends down
And looks under my bed
There he finds me
"There you are!" Daddy says
He pulls me out
By my hair, instantly
He starts beating me
Without a care...
An hour or two go by
The beating is finally done
I'm lying on the floor
I'm bleeding and fully numb
This Tree Is LonelyThis paper's so far goneThis Tree Is Lonely3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
That I can't read its words
And this tree is not enough
For the nesting birds.
'Cause it doesn't meet the expectations
And it can't afford to take any vacations
All it does is s t a n d and w a t c h you walk
Its reaching branches unable to talk.
But if I read its words
I'd bet it'd say-
Did you forget me again today?
And all I want to say
Maybe I'm only part of the forest fray
But I am d i f f e r e n t
'Cause I'm the only one praying on my knees
What did you do to me?
You see, this tree
You don't know what it means to me
And neither does he
This sylvan place makes it so hard to see
But, glancing through the green,
I can see what this tree means
And, like this tree,
I felt lonely

I am nothing like you.
Sick, spittle images
I ruin this splendor.
Oh! There she stumps.
It is a turmoil.
Bow-legged and Mardi Gras,
Halfway through comical proportions:
Reenact the same production,
While I the plugged-up gullet
Am making amends.

Yuki's head was pounding and Faith's screaming wasn't helping. She sat up in the lounge chair; the plastic straps had dug into her skin and left marks on her. She looked at Faith and saw her looking up, arms stretched out to the sky. She continued her cries out to LaLa. Then it snapped to Yuki what LaLa had done for them. Calida and Luke had crashed on to tables and knocked them to the ground.
"Damn that was a very rough landing," Sven said, standing to his feet, he had grass stains all over his clothes.
Faith shrieked out for LaLa still, "MOMMY!!" She even tried to jump up, getting some air. But her young age didn't allow her to fly like LaLa.
Everyone started to gather around, looking up at the guys' room. LaLa was there, half of her limp body was out on the patio. She was unconscious.
"LaLa!!" the group shouted her name.
She was still lifeless. Suddenly a splashing sound came behind them. Everyone turned, except for Faith who was still calling out to her mom. Mike
Of The Darkness: Part 1The thumping wouldn't go away, and it was driving Henna up the wall. She looked up at the alarm clock and it read: 5:26 am.

"Just ignore it," LaLa groaned.
"I can't," Henna whispered, not wanting to wake up Faith too. "It's driving me crazy."
"Then make it quick."
Henna nodded her head in the dark as she put on her slipper boots. She grabbed her hotel key, and rushed out of the hotel room to figure out what was making that loud sound. She closed the door behind her and looked up and down the hallway. Nothing was out of the norm and the corridor was peaceful of sleeping hotel guests. But her gut and senses were telling her something was off. Henna knew if she need backup in a fight she'll get from her friends.
She slowly walked to the left of her room till she hit the stairs. The lights were bright and stung her eyes. She glanced over to the vending machine and de

I am a silenceI am a silence3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am a silence, a small disturbance,
a flatness in the field of voices.
Voices rise like weeds and flowers,
rise like chimneys, rise like towers.
And there are voices high as hell
from whom we hear that all is well -
with some exceptions, we should know.
These are the fault of those below.
Weeds and flowers, for shame, for shame.
So much wrong and you to blame.
But I will not curse, I will not bless.
I am a silence, a small disturbance.

Upon waking, thoughts of her descend
The beauty I crave is often at arm's length
When her beauty comes across,
I think of what I could lose
and all that I've lost
I've laid the flowers at her feet
With this gift she is disenchanted
so again, the king of hearts hides up my sleeve

Pains of reality unreceptive
Nothing's ever as it seems
Desire feigns potential
Hopes go awry
Lightbulbs breaking and stabbing
Why is it so often
It happens to the stricken?
This wolf in sheeps' clothing
Promise of pleasure
Of the scrambling and grasping
Lost longing souls
Taunting. Tainting. Taking...
Taking tales and salves
Not to mention ship sails
So thread ships exits
Voyages all in vain
Terible the tapestry
To take the weaver
Palpable dream of revenge
Now you know
Advisors layed and lied
Your cats were sipping bourbon
Your angel snuffed cyanide

Where are You Now Dearest Friend?Whilst reading old letters like cold headstones,Where are You Now Dearest Friend?3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Over come with nostalgia of days I had laid to rest,
Found in dark places where no light has shone,
I shrink in fear of memories despite all of my best
Attempts to forget as to find relief
From the things welling up from underneath,
Thoughts of long fights we had over the phone
Our words like darts viciously thrown
Oh what happened to those days
when we each confessed our own
worried not with saving face
And all was truth to be known?
Where are you now Dearest Friend. how distant we've grown
How far from you I feel, here, writing alone

I will bury myself in Craft, with
libraries immortal and pages that birth dust
like roses erupting in their awakening
like nebulas emerging from slumber
I will consume phoenix ash and nightshade
the bodies of gods and priests will crumble
beneath my pagan hands, blasphemer's teeth
white as chalk, from which I draw my
stars with points like baphomet's smile
in the depths of winter should you wish me dead
like the foam on Venus's form, snow
that has gathered on the arches of your feet
will melt as I warm myself with the vehemence
of my loathing and loving
should you wish for me to die
I will be rendered immortal from spite
in my own immovable pride
should love choose to escape me
it will be that the chance was lost to have it

so tonight, I lay on my sword
and feel the sharp steel inside,
and pray to a foreign lord
-who, does not understand the pangs
of a beating heart, a living fault,
to be so patient, to bear no fangs,
I only beat my breast, and take, my licks with salts.
-My heart strings are like minor chords,
strike them! just keep on. Striking,
and I'll keep on struggling towards,
that dis-tant light, and fight against that everlasting spiking

it would be worth a future, at least once in a while
-Don't give me that, sad old sob story,
I know the tale, I tell it at least a dozen times,
you promise glory,

Look at this, well would you look at that
a bleak fall and a dirty pit,
get chewed upon, by all the rats

and their seething, and the sneering
would you result to that, oh god,
your hope keeps me going, and your beauty

just as I stepped into the pit, I said:
'I'm not coming all the way back'
My comment blew over the conversation
as would an impotent storm cloud
When I think in flames,
I speak in waves
My mouth is a shore
where water licks flame
My defenses are ready-made
Your offenses are presumed,
amplified, and begrudged
My weakness is not weak enough
I don't qualify for your concern
I can't put my finger on it,

please I implore you,
pick a place,
you're letting out all the air,
you're letting in all the cold,
my bills are through the roof,
because of you, because you can't decide,
I bet you like to bake your cake, and eat it too,
you cannot be a warm friend
and a spiteful enemy,
I cannot be your one support
and your insult,
sobriquet after sobriquet,
you'll come crawling back drunken on my doorway,
begging for a place to stay,
I'll give a blanket, some aspirin and coffee,
sober, I send you out to steal again in the streets
what is earned in abstinence,
you want love but don't deserve it,
you hate pity, but all you do is earn it, earn it,
I'd tear you down if you weren't polished rubble,
I'd split you if you weren't already broken,
don't spit in my face what you've suckled from my fingers,
and don't touch the thermostat,
I pay for you enough,

I look at everything
for when, I blink
I'm looking at something new
nothing is ever in the same place twice,
but it's everywhere, every where.
I am just an entity,
the sum of all my parts,
but count me atom by atom
and you've more problems than, what you had,
in the start,
I am never the same thing twice,
but am I not, ev-e-ry-thing?
I'm just a twinkling star,
equations, and formulas,
carbon, sodium, but what makes love grow fonder
sing a little louder now,
sustain a little long-er,
I am a man! Not a marble,
I'm not a probability, I am the sum of what I am,
and what I have done,
I struggle with the chemistry,
the hormones that dominate me,
everything has a reason,
explain to me, despair,
repair to my aching brain,
flashing lights and bustling trains,
the city is breath-ing,
isn't everything alive that was once
I try my best to fight the change,
but in it, I can only sway
and how I sway

My sister and I are opposites. She was popular, I was not. Even when I was an upper classman, no one really wanted to hang out with me. My flaming reddish hair clung on to each other; the curls making my head appear wider. My eyes were grey green, as if the green decided to fade away. My freckles seemed scattered on my face as if God didn't know where to place them and just spat them on my face. Worst of all was my smile, crooked and it became metalized. My teeth ached from the braces and it would cut the inside of my mouth.
My sister, on the other hand, had straight blonde hair with glimmering sky blue eyes. Her eyes were pouring with the calmness of the sea. Her smile would brighten up any room; ev
