You can't always get what you want.
Is it wrong to want someone all to yourself for just one day....
Just one night...
Under the moonlight on a secluded beach.
Or a day spent in Paris or Nice?
Maybe I'm wrong to be wanting something I can't have,
but I'm still dreaming of a life we could of had.
I've seen my dreams shattered when she's around,
My heart ripped in two, and I'm left feeling like a clown.
And I'm left thinking to myself is there nothing I can do,
to let you know how much I love you?

She had everything you needed, so you never looked to me.
She gave you everything, so you never took from me.
She's beautiful, you know that, we all know the same, I don't know why I bother with this game.
She loves you more than anything, and I hope she always will.
She always care for you,she'll keep you strong when times are tough, I could never be enough.
She's the one for you, a match made in heaven they say, she makes you happy, I guess I never could.
She's everything you wanted, she's everything I wanted to be.
I'm sorry but why can't it be me?

where life becomes scary and breathing
is vitally tedious, day and day is crushing
the emptiness of it all
how you can be filled

and so many people will touch you, all in one day,
until you can't breathe from the claustrophobia
the assault on your heart
I can see
the truth in your chest
keep going; they keep
going, like lengths of rope
or a walk down the traintracks
they keep going,
like the fall from the bridge;
there is never an end
to going on, and on,
and I will be there,
to see inside you,
hold you in the darkness, when you cry and
think I'm already asleep.

And living in my space.
Breathing in my air,
And filling up this place.
Removing all my childhood books
From their dusty shelf.
Puckered lips. Rush of air.
Dust flits by me everywhere.
The crunch and flick of every page.
Let's run away. Forget my age.
I know what I want
And I know that it's you.
So steal me away
To a place we can screw.
You'll pull me close
And kiss me with haste.
Your intrusive tongue.
The heavenly taste!
So I'll pack a bag, commandeer a car
And you can drive me anywhere.
Just you and I, no one else,
But by myself.
I WANT to see you in my world
And living in my space
But these are haunted day dreams
That will never take their place.
I'm still waiting here. Untouched.
Call me now. Save me please.
You know I really want you to.

Let me enjoy your beautiful sight
Before I have to embark
Unto my journey into the dark
Let me take you in my arms
Before the world harms
Coming between the two of us
They don't understand our fuzz

Between your hair oh so soft
Our little cage for two
Encircling me and you
Stay with me one more night
Let me enjoy your beautiful sight
My eyes start to ache
Without you I awake

What are you trying to hide
What is so valuable inside
Why keep it under lock and key
Please let your secret be free
And share it with me

Just to knock me down.
You put me in the shop window for everyone to see,
Just so they can mock me.
You tell me the world is my oyster, and I am the pearl,
Just to trap me inside.
You lift my heart and tell me its a gem,
Just to break it like glass.
You give me the good news first,
Just so you can hit me with the bad.
You give me dreams and hopes,
Just so you can crush them like a bug.
You do this all,
Just to make your self feel better.
Rain dropsThe rain was beating down, and they both made a mad dash into his house, when inside they tumbled on to the sofa. After catching their breath they both stared into each others eyes.Rain drops2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
There was rain drops caught in his jet black hair, which began trickling down his face. "There's something on you're face" she said as she began wiping the rain drops of his face, he gently caught her hand.
"There's something on you're lips" he said with the softest of tones, and a sly smirk creeped across his face, which she didn't notice. "what is it??" she asked concerned, she tried to wipe her face but he still held her hand.
He leaned closer to her and whispered "mine" then he kissed her.

Trying hard to block you out, I stare out the window and watch the rain.
But oh! How I wish you were here, you could take away the pain.
Your soft lips would touch mine; your warm skin would surround mine.
And I'd be happy.
Snap out of the dream world, I have to command myself.
Thinking about you all this time could not be good for my health.
I've been so close and yet so far.
Those moments we shared, I know they were brief, but yet they replay as I try to sleep.
And I find myself smiling, no control do I have.
You've stole my heart, and weirdly I'm actually glad.

RestrictedThere are one hundred and one restrictions I must abide to.Restricted2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can't break any one's trust.
I can't hurt anyone.
I can't let anyone down.
I can't shout at the world what I want to say,
because I am trusted,
because I don't want to break any one's heart.
I must abide to this restriction.
I can't always barf up rainbows like I want to.
I have to protect my image.
(Why do I have a curse on me that says all my neighbors must be EXTREMLY religious?)
I must abide to this restriction.
I can't embrace my inner insanity.
I must conform to the rules of society.
I don't want people to be afraid of me.
I must abide by this restriction.
I could go on some more.
But then you would be here forever.
So I bid you farewell,
Try not to be restricted.
Lost feelingsIt's crazy the way I felt for you,Lost feelings2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crazy how I truly believed that I loved you right down to the core.
But now I see you, and something's not right, I've lost all feeling.
Thoughts of you don't seem to keep me up all night.
I told my self you have to be the one, all the moments we shared how ever small, they used to keep me dreaming that you were the prince I would meet at the fairytale ball.
But now know those feelings of wonder and love, have seemed to disappear to the heavens above.
And I feel remorse for those feelings I had, the ones that made my skin tingle and hair stand on end.
And those missed heart beats when you said my name, I truly fear that they shall not come again.
What's wrong with me? I thought I'd always feel that way.
But now I'm numb my life feels only grey.

See the light, but as I walk it gets further away.
You are golden, but I'm scared to touch you incase you break like glass.
Why do I feel alone in a room full of strangers, why do I feel like the only one to walk this earth?
Inside my heart feels heavy, but my body feels hollow, one breeze and I might break.
I feel lost, I feel alone but yet I know you are there.
Please always be there.

Your love for me,
Encompassed my heart,
Persuaded me to believe you
And fall for your dirty little tricks.
My trust for you,
Was something you didn't deserve.
I believed all your empty promises
And hallow words without a second thought.
Of knowing you were mine,
Knowing you thought I was the one for you,
Or so I so ignorantly believed
As you told me day after day.
So twisted yet so convincing,
Each fabrication poisoning my heart,
Without me noticing.
A gift to you,
So delicate and fragile,
Yet you threw it to the ground
And laughed as it shattered before your feet.
The person I thought I loved,
The guy I trusted my heart and soult to,
The boyfriend I never doubted...
Did you realize how you broke me beyond repair?
