Questions That Burn In My Mind -_-Jeffrey Nero Hardy Peom-_-
By: Crystal G. Nelson (@Key2Exist on Twitter)
It was like a drug I could take
Forever killing me inside.
Burning through my veins
Like venom and acid.
Just like that poisonous mushroom
That had once grew.
Washing away all the troubles
That befalls me.
Destroying these memories
That once plagued my mind.
How did I get this way?
On what date and time?
Do you even listen to my rhyme?
I begged you, please
Help me with this disease.
This sickness that is me.
Do you even care?
Is it even fair?
Why is it I?
Who lives in this disguise?
Why is it only me who...
Fell from grace?
Why do we all...
Hide our face?
Do you even care?
About the real me?
Do you even want to know the real?.........

Keeping your SalvationWhen you receive salvation, can you lose it?Keeping your Salvation5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Some churches will say that to keep your salvation, you must obey the laws.
But that is wrong.
When you have received Jesus' salvation, truly received him, you are saved.
As it has been sang:
"No power of Hell, no scheme of man can ever pluck me from his hands."
But, this does not mean that Jesus did not left us rules.
For that he came to Earth not to abolish the laws, but to fulfill them. He has placed some new laws not so that we can keep his salvation, but so that we can be good Christians and so we can understand what God would want us to do in several situations and conflicts when we hear him.
You will still be tempted to sin and Satan will try to get you to rebel against God, but stay strong in the Lord.
But, the question is "Have you been received his salvation?"
When you prayed for forgiveness and you truly meant it, you might not feel any different than before. The next step to this is to start living Ch

A smirk graced her face as she stared down at the men bellow her cage. Avenged Sevenfold's 'Scream' was blasting through the amps as she slid down the bars. Yuuki's long blue bangs clung to her sweaty skin as she gave the guys a show. Her crazy half sister was really putting on a show with all the sexual moves she was doing in her own cage. This just made Yuuki throw her head back and laugh. They were the only one's with the tri-colored hair. Tori was the gothic-ish one, with her black, blue, and purple hair.
Jeff took a good amount of his beer as he looked up at the caged dancers. His Tiger green eyes watching as the girl with the blue, green, and purple tri-colored hair acted like she was trying to break free. Then his eyes caught a guitair being given to her while the other tri-colored haired girl got a microphone. Jeff noticed that the gothic-ish chick had caught his

The sky is blue and grass is green
I know I am so proud to call you mine
And your eyes are the loveliest I've seen
I know I want our love to stay so strong
As mighty as the ocean waves
It could keep the largest ship afloat
And stay sturdy in any storm
I know your kisses
Are sweeter than any nectar
And your hold on my heart
Is stronger than any titanium
I know you're the most beautiful soul
I've been lucky enough to hold on to
And I never want to let you
Slip through my fingers

Each one reminding me what I had
Sometimes, I can’t stand it and I fall to my knees
I can’t believe I had perfection…
And I just let it slip away.
I wish I could tell you, but I don’t know what you’d say
You were my best friend, my everything
You were a part of me and I let you get away
So much for meaning every word that you say…
I wish I could tell you how right you were
I should’ve treated you better and been more mature
But you opened my eyes though it hurt me sometimes
To see how much we were falling apart…
Neither one of us tried; I wish you didn’t just leave
It kills me not knowing what I should feel
Or what to believe
But you probably won’t see this, not this time
And you’ll never know how much this has torn me apart…

Alone in your thoughts
How many others have stand where you are today?
Just wait for me now
A safe return is all I want
Break from all these chains
All these roads that I have taken led me to nowhere
Left me here standing at life's edge
There is just one thing left to ask, just wait for me
Broken mirrors can't hide from my shame
It has been years
Shattered into a million pieces
Wait for me there is still time
I haven't gotten back on my feet
I have hit rock bottom
The only way now is to go up
Please wait for me
But I will ask you once more,
Will you wait for me?
Only time could tell
Down into a deep spiral
There is no turning back
Just driving myself into a grave
Won't you wait for me?
Will there be a hand to save?
Or just turn a blind eye to my call?
And I shall wait for your answer

i can not speak

the ink on that page:
shouts the passion of my soul &
cries with vengeance

strings together my thoughts,
and knits a golden fleece

my writing unveils that,
strips it bare
and leaves it hanging
off of four lined stanzas
I am a poet

Though I've put forth my best
It's just never enough
And I'm sorry...
To me, things have felt so unreal
I can't believe you've stolen my heart
But I love the way that you make me feel
And it kills me that we're so far apart
I wish more than anything that you could be here
To kiss all my scars and wipe all of these tears
And I'm sorry I can't be much more
You know I'm a mess, and I've told you before
That still I promise I'll forever be yours...
I'll be there with you soon enough
You're all that I've needed
And you're all I think of
So don't worry...
To me, this all happened so fast
It's hard to simply take everything in
Despite this distance I know that we'll last
And I swear that I will hold you again
I wish more than anything that I could be there
To taste your sweet kiss and to play with your hair
So don't worry I promise I'll try to be more
You know I'm a mess, and I've told you before
That still I promise I'll forever be yours...

I gave my entire heart over to you
You took it from me and dumped it in the trash
I should've known, beauty never lasts
Roses are brittle and violets will wilt
All I did was try and ask you for help
You took me under your wing and crept into my heart
Then you took your time in ripping me apart
Roses are dead, the violets are too
How did I ever convince myself to trust you
Still, it was nice to think I had a friend
To bad I was just a toy to you in the end

Rejoice not in the end
But in the beginning of a new time
A time with nothing but the memories of me
Don't be sad my friend
My oldest, dearest companion
Everything that exists had a beginning
And must at one point cease
I do not know where I will go
Yet I am sure I will not linger
Do a service to my path laid out ahead
Tarry me not in my completed task
I might wrestle with an angel among the heavens
Or I might lead unto nothing
Of this nothing is certain
Aside from the inevitability
Remember me when I'm gone
My dearest, oldest friend
Know that in your heart I am prepared
Only your longing traps me here
Don't Let GoRestrained by insecurity, she is hard to love.Don't Let Go3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her heart however, hides a passion unknown.
An unforeseen utopia, and still so much more.
The problem, huge hearts make easy targets.
The strategy is simple though, easy to learn.
Follow this formula and you'll find your forever.
Hold her tight through all of the happy times,
and the fighting and the anger, don't let go.
If you feel her falling take her hand in yours.
When you feel like she is letting go, catch her.
Protect her with your arms when she is scared.
When she is sad, especially then, don't let go.
Don't let her walk away, even if she wants to.
Bravery is an act, nobody wants to be alone.
It will take work, but the reward is her heart.
And she will treasure you, but don't ever let go.

Look into the sky and keep believing
'Cause you know that deep down through all the pain
There will be a day when you are free again
I was there when life turned to death
I was there when you breathed your last breath
Now I am here with a look full of fear
Too scared to move, my eyes filled with tears
I watch you walk, amazed at the sight
As you follow the trail of light
You turn around and smile at me
You say that you have been set free
You start to walk towards the light
Then all is silent, an empty night
I stare in wonder, my mouth is dry
Tears trickle down my face,
As I whisper

Closes her eyes to set free tears
She opens her mouth in a silent scream
To share the horror with the world
To let the world feel her pain

The eyes that pierced her soul
She clings onto his body
Hoping for him to be there
Praying he will stay here

The numb feeling a distant memory,
The pain pierces my body,
Sinking into my bones,
Like a biting wind.
It slowly takes over,
Pulling me under,
The light too far away to see,
My entire world.
How could he....
Why would he....
It controls me.
All the while,
Wishing for a corner,
Just to curl up in.
Curl up in,
And wish away the past,
Wish away the pain.
Can i pretend this never happened?
It may be the only way to get through the day.
To wish away the past,
To wish it all away.
I wish i could go to sleep,
And wake up,
Never remembering a thing.
Non of the bad,
Non of the sad,
Just to start every day afresh,
I'm curled up tight,
Each new wave of pain,
Leaving a brand new wound,
To turn into a shiny new scar.
I hold myself tight,
A look out at the night,
Wish it all...

It seems like every love song comes on;
now that you have come and gone.
It makes me feel lonely and hurt,
like I'm only a grain of dirt,
unimportant and unwanted.
Really, I'm quite disappointed.
I thought we could have lasted longer,
but it seems I couldn't have been wronger.
It thought you loved me; I thought you cared,
but it turns out your love was shared
with other women, well, just one;
the one who dumped you, and claimed to be done.
You took my heart and ripped it to shreds
and now, inside, I am dead.

Hold me in your grasp until I never see the light of day.
Take me far away; away from everyone I know
Take away their voices so my breath may finally slow.
Let your peaceful current calm this broken mind,
Let it carry away my thoughts to a place impossible to find.
Give me the silence that I crave each sleepless night,
Fill my ears, my body, my soul; just make everything alright.
Fill this beating heart, so broken, hurt and scarred,
Stop it's painful beating; it's just become too hard.

Why would you give me

Is the pain worth it

It's so clear,
But you just can't see.
You've fallen for
A person that is two.
You can't really be sure
What I will do.
You say I need you.
Is that why you're here?
You really should fear.
You seem to think
Everything will be okay.
We will have to see.
You're Not AloneWe live in a world that is full of great pain.You're Not Alone3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where everyone one has a heavy burden to carry.
We think that nobody could possibly understand what we have gone through.
But in a world that is abundant in such matters,
there is somebody, somewhere who knows of your grievances;
who shares your pain;
who is in the same boat.
So know; You're not alone.
Like a child behind a locked door,
we keep our burdens a secret.
We do what we shouldn't.
We say what we wouldn't.
Instead of seeking help among ones we love,
we pray they never find out.
We isolate ourselves;
we think we're alone...
Weather it was something we have said or done,
something we are ashamed of,
or something in our past.
It eats at our hearts.
We are afraid to open up.
We forget that we aren't the only ones in the world,
because others laugh and smile.
But I assure you, they have their own problems too.
So don't think you're alone.
Stop looking back if your past is ugly.
Stop looking to your side and comparing your life.

Is not how good you are together as a couple
is that pain you feel in your chest every time you're not around the other
Is that you always find yourself thinking of the other
Is that feeling of happiness every time you see the other happy, even if it isn't with you
You don't know true love yet when you're born
You will find true love when you give up on it
There will always be that person that pulls you through
And then you will know
The true meaning of love
