Just so...You pick me up and put me on the highest pedestal you can find,
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.
Longing LoveI'm listening to the sad love songs on the radio, and my heart whispering your name.Longing Love1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
HollowWalking lonely on the path of life, the dark shadow always at my side.Hollow1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
ChampionAs a child he watched, his heroes bask in glory,Champion1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hoping that one day that would be his story.
All day and all night he worked himself to be the best,
Put his passion to the test.
Then one day he got a break,
A unknown fighter, against a flake.
With the dodge of a punch and the flick of the hand,
For the first time he was a winning man.
Notcied by a guy who looked like a bum,
Told he would train him, to be the one.
With the nod of a head and a shake of the hand,
Could there be a champion in this young man?
Blood, sweat and tears went hand in hand,
With new found titles, 'he's our man!'
He rose higher and higher on his winning streak,
But to the glitz and glamour he became weak.
Lost in the glory that was his own,
feeling high on top of his throne.
But into the scene came a new kid in town,
Who took him on, and brought him down.
Down and out he had lost his fame,
So he turned to a bottle with no name.
And in a drunken rage he let rip on the town,
Caused him a lock up in old downtow

Under a lace and feather cover is were she hides.
Long black hair, that falls gentlely down her back like a waterfall, coressting her pale white skin.
Her deep brown eyes outlined heavily with glitter, and gold and toped wih thick black mascara, like heavy black feathers they flutter over her eyes. The same eyes that could lead a man to there demise with just a wink.
And under this perfect shell, a body that some would die for, a body that kills some, but yet it hides a broken soul of a lost child.
A child that has seen so much, but yet has felt so little, and now the child is lost forever and now all that is left is this monster with the rouge red lips.
Lost feelingsIt's crazy the way I felt for you,Lost feelings1 year 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.

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?

My note books filled with your name,
but I know you'll never feel the same.
But I still wish, and dream and hope,
that you'll be mine soon enough, but I seem to be fending my way up a slippery slope.
But I'm fooling no one not even myself,
because I know we will never be saying "in sickness and in health"
I guess I'll never get to know if we were ment to be, because she came along and clouded your view,
and you will remain unaware because you never knew,
That the love I have was ment for you.
A name less soulPlain and quiet, a girl with no name.A name less soul1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who was dying on the inside, but showed no outer pain.
She wasn't like the rest, she could never be.
She felt unloved, she was never called pretty.
She tried to be what she hated the most,
So maybe someone would show her some love.
Forgotten, rejected, and on her own,
Loathed those who had cut her to the bone.
Each night her pillow was filled with tears,
Each day her shoulders carried all her fears.
Alone she sat, ridiculed by all,
Her heart was heavy, she felt so small.
Burnt out and broken, She couldn't take no more,
Lost with out feeling, her wounds were sore.
Until one day, the light did shine,
and on that day she did feel fine.
She stood up and found her voice,
her name, and with her life she had a choice.
And if you look, and you will see,
that plain, quiet girl, that would be me.

Burnt, broken and bleeding, left to die, that's how you left me.
You were a drug, an idol, the shining light, but under neath the devil burned inside.
Inside your veins flowed hatred and horror, and only I could see your true side, that you could never truly hide.
So I'll break my chains, be set free, I know you never needed me.
But that's ok, I don't care I've found my home, inside the hearts of those I love, and frankly your not welcome, don't you darken my door.
I don't need you, not now, not then, no more.
Do what you've always done,
Leave me. And finally I'll be happy.

Most of the furniture colour scheme is blue and white,there are many large padded seats and placed between each is a metal table attached to the floor, the underneath of which has accumulated a collection of red chewing gum over the years.
In the centre of the diner there is a large metallic counter, with many blue bar stools placed around the edge.
On the top of the counter sits two girls both of which are the same age and both have there hair dyed bleach blonde, the two are dressed in blue and white uniforms, that match the diner decor, the only difference is that they both have had the skirts of their uniform altered so that they are shorter than the rest.
One sits examining her nails while blowing bubbles of red chewing gum, clearly the culprit behind the growing collection of gum under the surrounding tables.

Was the reply to the begging, to stop all the horrors that had begun.
Atheists say you pray to nothing, or that your God does not hear.
Your God does hear, which is what theists both hope, and fear.
Be it a God among angels, or a God among devils, or a God among men.
They are still only one God, even with the strength of ten men.
They would not be able to stop these horrors, keep them at bay.
Because every God falls trying, and most die where they lay.
One man alone, One God alone, Or Legion, alone.
They would still be helpless, for they are on their own.
I know this, yet I stand tall, a hero for you all.
I am on my own, yet I am proud, and I stand tall.
I am a hero, and I will spread my wings far and wide.
I will look after you all, I will help you, and be your guide.
Everyone fails, when they are on their own.
But I am the one who will do

Not thinking about a lot.
Thinking about what it how it would be,
To have a thoughts as endless as the sea.
Thinking about the passing time,
About the mountains I have not climbed.
Thinking about a world gone by,
And about the big blue sky.
Thinking about love so sweet,
And of life crumbling at my feet.
To think about everything vast as it seems,
Would take as long as counting dreams.
So to think without a thought,
And not to think about a lot.
Would carry on an endless dream,
And let time unravel at it's seams.

Killer QueenShe's that girl you'll want to know,Killer Queen1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
She doesn't make it rain, she makes it snow.
She can be fully dressed, in nothing but a vest
and a pair of white high heels, and still walk with added zest.
With a glass in her hand and a man 'round her waist,
She's got a killer instinct, and a extravagant taste.
She'll wine and dine at your demise,
But you'll fall hopelessly in love with her eyes.
She'll kiss you, and you'll feel fireworks,
And then leave with a devilish smirk.
She'll crush your heart in the palm of her hand,
And then laugh as it was part of her plan.
She'll watch you burn without a flame,
And play with your life like its a game.
And you can go and call her mean,
and try your best to make a scene.
But you'll never beat the Killer Queen.

They try and try to say it's mine
But it's not, it's theirs
And even though it makes me blind
I will always, always try to find
The lies have painted my life story
And now our ending will be gory
He is my black and white
So many colors were the web of the spider
He was my colorless fighter
I saw the lies
And beside him I fought
Meanwhile I sought
The ending to their lies
Even though blood is thicker than water
Even though I am their daughter
They killed me with their colors
But they were beautiful colors...
