It's taking everything in me not to let this cell win my sanity. Every day, I suffer with the memory of court and how it changed my life forever.
"For the crimes of interfering with the murder of the Minotaur-"
The sun is down, the air is cold and thick, but I'm slowly letting myself manage in the brutal Hell I've let myself become part of. The humiliation of my failures has overcome my ability to return to my work as a craftsman.
I did nothing wrong, I convinced myself, burying my face in my hands. All I did was help them I did nothing wrong.
"- giving Theseus a clew for the labyrinth for said killings of the Minotaur, you will be banished to my Palace and be held prisoner!" King Minos ordered harshly, slamming his fist on his throne as a loud thud echoed in all of our ears.
"Sire, please!" I begged.
"Take him away!"
Suddenly I had two well built toga dressed guards grabbing either side of my arms, pulling me to my feet as I struggled for them to let me go.
"Sire, please! My son

A thousand miles from anywhere
We're cold, our hearts bleeding,
But we're happy,
Because now we are together.
Worried parents cry out our names,
But we dont have to cry at all,
Because now we are together.
The sad thing is though,
They cant see us.
They will never see us together.
We do everything together.
Tonight, we died together.

It's funny how we pretend
like it never, ever happened to be.
Like if we just push it all away
I'll forget what happened to me.
Maybe you can forget
but I was the one left alone.
and it feels like everyone turned on me...
And as if I was the person who was supposed to atone.
How was I supposed to know
what stupid thing would end like this.
That our childish fun
would soon become toxic bliss.
And what was I supposed to do?
Keep it to myself forever more?
And just pretend
that I didn't feel like a whore.
Do you know how gross it was
when you touched me that way?
Every night I beg for it to stop,
every night I pray.
And though she thinks your innocent
I know its not true.
and even though I'm upset and angry...
I really don't hate you.
but, that you just pretend
that you don't even know...
But didn't you hear me...
when I told you "No."?

Hatred usually sleeps with anger;
I feel no drops of rage.
But, disgust has lived here past its keep;
Promotion came with age.
So, here I am hating--
[Though, hating the word]
Hating most of all,
That I'll never be heard.
I hate this feeling that makes me sick;
Just watching the clock and hearing it tick.
I hate lacking life.
I hate ungrateful complaining.
I hate that I'm speechless;
Because, it's not worth explaining.
It's not what you think.
You actually can't understand.
I thought I could, too.
I once held my stand.
I hate being wrong.
Not for wanting to be right.
No, I'm ashamed I'd been blind,
When I should have used sight.
I hate how my brain
Speaks constant analysis.
Scratching at old wounds,
And, creating new callouses.
The chatter incessant,
The dread never-ending,
I hate to admit it;
But, I'm so sick of pretending.
I hate that I lie.
I hate words I speak.
I hate how I cave,
Because I'm just so damn weak.
I don't have a backbone.

Violets are blue
Before you promised me
That you would be true
I gave you my love
So that we can start
But instead you just smiled
Right before breaking my heart
So now I am crushed
While you are still free
You're more happy now
That you have forgotten me
The roses are dead
But the violets stayed true
They have left my life
Nothing but Blue

All the memories that pass,
How is it that we ever survived,
without each other by our sides?
We were once a family,
Now we are all scattered.
Lost in this cold empty field,
No one to ever help us out,
Watching the memories fade,
I call out your names,
One by one,
Hoping you all would just return.
Days fly by,
still no one by my side,
All the originality is gone,
Where did you all go?
Tears sting my eyes,
Why did it have to end like this?
No one has been back on these roads for so long,
You all are so far gone,
All I have left,
Is what is in my memories.

Is it this a curse or a blessing?
Should I cower from it or embrace it?
Is the joy, the pure bliss,
Really worth the trouble, the worry of being hurt?
The question lingers over my head day after day:
Will I get hurt again?
The love is there,
So tempting, so disarming,
The deepest part of my heart wants to reach out to it,
To relieve myself of this burden on my shoulders,
Because I know it will go away
Once I invite love into my heart.
I remember the feeling of love,
How I would be soaring above the clouds at every touch,
Every sight of him,
And I knew that he was there for me.
I think I'm in love,
Because I can't get over the sight of him.
I think he's right for me
Because he understands me.
I think he's my knight in shining armor
Because my heart quickens when I see him.
This all lures me in
To be held in the hands of love once more,
Yet I think,
Is my heart playing a trick on me?
Is this real?
Is this worth it?
Deep in my mind,
Doubt clouds my judgement,

I believe I was between the ages eight and ten. The river had taken hold of the boy, a few years younger than I, who had been wearing a life jacket. Now I know, he would not have drowned but when I had been holding onto the front of his life jacket him crying out for me to save him, I was frightened. I couldn't let go of him, even though I couldn't fight the current which dragged my toes across the loose riverbed. After screaming out for God knows how long, and being pulled forwhat seemed a hundred yards down river, my dad and everyone finally heard us and picked us up out of the water.
This isn't heroic, this isn't something I brag about. I have actually never really spoken of this before until now. It just isn't something that needs to be talked about. I only did what was right, what was in my heart and I think we, as people, need to embrace that feeling. We may

Well here I go again
trying to pretend its okay.
Masking my tears with a smile
Hoping it'll all go away.
Yeah it kills me
to see you with another
but I'd never tell you
I wouldn't even bother.
Crimson could run down my arm
you would do nothing to stop it.
I could burn myself alive
you wouldn't give a shit.
It bothers me to see you happy
It would be easier to see you cry.
But I'll always fucking love you
cross my heart and hope to die.
So I hid the shard of glass
in my pocket safe
Waited until no one noticed
and found my hiding place.
I guess I broke my record
I can kiss my hopes goodbye
As I stood shaking
blood is all I could cry.
I covered my arm with tissue paper
to try to hide the blood.
Theres something wrong with me
I'm dying of love.

And its almost been
That you used to hang around
Since youve been here
And the clouds they turned white
After they faded from your glory
No one knows
But I still remember your story
I thought youd return
But now it is clear
Youve faded into the crowd
And it looks like the missing girl
Is never coming back
So now youre gone again
So long again
This time forever
You let me down
You watched me cry
My heart wavers
And all my trust was in you
But you threw it out
You didnt pull through
I guess you feel like youre home again
But youre wrong
It tore me apart
The day you left
I didnt smile for months
Not even when you tripped
I thought I wanted to end my life
Or it would all be better
If I made you cry
I thought Id feel alive
Now I dont feel like
Theres anything to believe in
Youre moving on
Youre really leaving
So now youre gone again

Its strange now how our lives have changed.
Some claim this is all prearranged.
But, here I am, clad in this pretty black dress dad.
I know you dont like it when I cry but I cant help but be sad.
Standing by your side, I want to lie there beside you.
Daddy, I never even got to bid you adieu.
Youll never know how much that hurt,
Never getting to remind you that Ill always be your little girl.
There are times I catch myself starting to tear up,
Every time I see a picture of you, even if isnt a close-up.
You never were like other fathers,
Yet, that was never a bit of a bother,
For though sometimes I feared you dad,
I remember all the happy moments we had.
I just miss you so.
It doesnt seem that long ago.
Ill carry a picture of you in my heart,
That way, were never that far apart.
Why did you have to go?
Daddy, please just come home.

I don't know if I want out
But I want to want it.
I don't want to stop cutting
If I'm honest..
I Love the scars that are accumulating
I Love the way my limbs look
Completely covered in blood
Consumed by cuts big and small
But deep down inside
The pure me, the small piece left
wants to want to stop
I want to kill myself
So badly, It be so much easier
Just to silently stop breathing
I want it so bad I've tried
I want it like nothing else
But I don't want to want it
Deep down inside
Beneath the shiny, pink scar tissue
There is a little girl
That girl is silenced now
But she wants to be happy
She wants to live
She wants to stop
But I don't know her
My thoughts don't agree
And I return to my habits
A sad story
Left without an ending

I watched them stitch me up.
15, 8 in one gash, 7 in the other.
My dad looked on,
as tears fell from the eyes of my mother.
I watched them sow me together,
They couldn't sow up my heart.
So they just sowed
the skin I ripped apart
I let them numb me,
Not that I couldn't take the pain.
I was dying of self-hatred,
drowning in self blame.
When I should be blaming you,
You're killing me and you don't even know.
I have to hide my feelings,
because I love you so.
the thought of you with her,
I would rather die.
So I cut up my wrists,
And wished to say goodbye.
Can't you see it?
You are killing me?
I've become so blinded
I can't even see.
rich crimson blood,
coming through the skin.
I know deep in my heart,
I'm dead within.
So I watched the stitch up my arm
all I can do now is cry.
Because to be honest Layne...
Without you I will die.

Im sorry for the pain Ive cause you
Im sorry for making you mad
Im sorry for starting the fights
Im sorry for forgiving you
Then fighting again
Im sorry for saying sorry and not meaning it
But this time
I am sorry
I truly am
But the question is
Do you forgive me?
And do I forgive myself?
And last of all
Should I still love you?
If its cause this much trouble for both of us
Is it worth it?
But I must think
Of the consequences
If I didnt love you anymore
I would be miserable
I would miss you
I would be lost
I would be gone
I wouldnt be on earth
But I would also still love you
So I guess Ill have to live with it
Even if it dose mean you need to put up with my shit
My love letters, songs
And my love
But just a question
Do you love me enough,
To put up with that?
Because I love you enough
To put up with your things
That annoy the shit outta me
BrokenI don't know why they call it a broken heart, because it's not, really.Broken4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It's more like your heart is trying to break apart, but it never really succeeds.
It's like it's literally trying to pull itself into two, and struggling to function correctly in the process.
And oh, it hurts.
If you've never had a broken heart you won't understand, you probably think it's an emotional thing, like it's all in the mind.
But it's so much more than that.
It's a physical ache in your chest, a painful whine that just doesn't quit.
It's a kind of pressure, compacting your whole chest area and making everything inside hurt.
Then it rises, it forces its way up into your throat, forming an aching lump that pushes tears from your eyes.
And then you're crying because it's just impossible not to do so.
And even when you're all cried out, it's still there, this indescribable ache that feels like no other ache you've ever
