CinderellaI'm Cinderella tonight
When the clock strikes twelve
I must go and leave you behind
Twenty four minutes left
Just enough time for one last song
One last dance
One more time to be held in your arms
I'm Cinderella tonight
And in a couple of minutes I'll run out
But we've got one last chance
To the rhythm of the falling rain
Under this gray skies
I'm Cinderella tonight
And with just seventeen minutes left
I'm cradled in your arms
Under the falling rain
I'm Cinderella tonight
And I'm dancing under gray skies
My prince holds me tight
We sway softly from side to side
Waiting for the last minutes to pass by
I'm Cinderella tonight
And at twelve am I must leave you behind
Missing You SomeI cant sleep. Hours pass me by, but they dont touch me.Missing You Some3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Yesterday i went to bed at 6 in the morning
Hello, how do you do?
I have being missing you some
So much has happend lately, things you will probably never know
You have being haunting me in my dreams i would prefer you didnt do that
How is your trip? I hope this finds you well
Your dad looks lonely its heartbraking
I work now i need to get money somehow
I find myself with new things i would like to share with you everyday
I often forget them when i sit in front of the computer to write them down
Maybe they're not as important i just wish you were here
Remember Vanilla Twilight?
It was our song last time you went away
You never told him where to find me if I ran away
Luckily i dont plan on doing that soon
You know, the thing about you leaving is that no one can do the job of replacing you well enough for my liking
If you ever have insomnia call me
Even though i dont think you ever will
Your mind is filled with too many nothing's to

But only if you need too
But just if it'll help you forget
To drown all this pain
When I turn away
But don't let me hear you
But don't break my heart
If you'll let me go
Because it'll hurt
If all you can do is watch
If you wish you could have fought
If it's hard to hold on to hope
If the future is no longer ours
If you will never again love
But only for those things you did wrong
For our broken dreams
If all you want to do is forget
For our fractured promises
Like you won't do when you watch me leave

My love, she'll never understand you
My darling dearest, forgive me
I should've been better
I should've been present
I should've been the one to fix your heart
I should've been the one who your tears dried
My lips were suppose to hold the truth
That her poisonous tongue kept from you
My shoulder was supposed to keep the tears
That her bosom did nothing to prevent
My love, she will just hurt you
My love, she will just corrupt you
My darling dearest, don't be a fool
Open your eyes and embrace the truth
I should've been stronger
Yet I showed you just how weak I can be
I should've held on to hope
Yet you saw just how easily I give in
I should've believed
Yet you know where I chose to seek for peace
But I still beg, I still implore
A second chance is all I ask for
She is no better, don't wait to see
She will only crush you and watch you bleed
She will not care for you
None will do the way I did
Don't try to discover it by your own means
Perfect, With YouMaybe this is perfect.Perfect, With You10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not knowing where you're going
Not knowing why.
Not knowing when you're stopping
Not knowing how.
Maybe perfect is this:
Not creating the right moment
But letting it surprise you.
Like a loving kiss in the middle of a fight.
A caring smile that makes friends out of any stranger.
The first words out of a small child's lips.
Like snow in the middle of spring.
And maybe this is why perfect never lasts:
So you can always experience new found joy every time it comes by.
So you're never used to the blessings that you'll be spontaneously showered by.
And this perfect moments find new ways to surprise you.

I realize now that I never really knew what love was til you came along
I now know I used to believe in a lie, that illusions had me deceived
That's why my heart was usually broken, my dreams so often crushed
It was because I never really got the real feeling, I never knew how it felt to be loved
My heart didn't know how to accept it, just had dreams to believe in
My life had been meaningless, my dreams empty
They all lacked of truth that was always out of reach
Unknown worlds of feelings, devoid of anything but greed
But you showed me differently, when you came along
You stepped on my life and changed its course
A light that had been missing, a whole new world I didn't know
You showed me how to believe in what was worth
Carefully and lovingly guiding me to the light
Helping me see what was truly right
Putting the truth on my hands
Giving kindness to my empty heart
And slowly I learned, how to love and care
To see what means to feel real warmth for somebody
Believing wasn't hard at all
Will You Ever...?Do you love me?Will You Ever...?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Simple question, complex answer
Don't give me measure
Don't give me quantity
All I need is a straight answer
I want depth, not length
Truth, not a bunch of well constructed lies
I want an explanation
Of what you feel on your heart
I want it bare
I want it raw
So look me in the eyes
And answer me
Do you love me?
Your maddening insensibility
A cover-up mask
Hiding from my view
A heart that over flows with love and desire
Yet, I don't know
If I'm the recipient of that love
You hang me around your neck
For the whole world to see
And I still wonder, is that love for me?
How hard Is it to tell me?
How hard is it to show me?
How will I know if you really love me?
If I ask you to be there for me
Tell me, am I asking too much?
If I ask you for understanding
Will it sound too demanding?
Why do you stay mum?
Why not tell me what's wrong?
Is it just me, your own flesh and blood
If even from me you conceal it
Then, who do you trust?
Is it that im not enough?
Is it that in your eyes
My Bleeding HeartMy Bleeding Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My heart is bleeding
Try sleeping with a broken heart
The nails are deeper than I ever thought possible
Didn't even know there was flesh there
The air I breathe is toxic
The food I don't eat can't heal me
Everything slowly kills me
Insomnia haunts me
Pieces of my heart keep shattering my dreams
Try living a never ending nightmare
Pain and fear my faithful companions
I have made them a special place
Where they can spend the night comfortable
I swim in darkness cause my misery blinds me
I know where the light is yet I don't want it
My cries and my sobs by all go ignored
They look at me but the truth is in codes
They can't read what's written on my soul
That the love is almost over and so is the hope
What am I supposed to do? How do I get back to where I belong?
I know he's somewhere, I can feel his presence
Yet I can't hear him, I can't see him
The knowledge gives me courage, the strength to endure
I'm still not ready to lose
But there's not much you can ask of these broken p

Just a thought of you makes me happy.
Thinking about you I always do.
People tell me, this feeling isn't real.
Why do they have to say that?
The more I think of you, the more I smile.
The more I think of you, the more I am falling,
It's been awhile since I met you.
But I can't stop thinking of you.
Tell me it's wrong,
Tell me it's too quick.
Tell me you're falling to me too,
Tell me you feel the same.
Love knows no time and no distance.
No matter how far we are from each other.
Love is what I feel for you,
Every moment I think of You.
Back To LoveBack To Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I was remembering how we used to be
How we would feel sharing glances and looks,
The heart melting desire that would grip our hearts
The feeling after our first kiss,
The stupefying effects of all the others that followed
How we would laugh like kids,
Telling each other sweet nothings in ticklish ears
Remember how we used to hold hands when it was dark and nobody could see?
When every touch had a special meaning, its own language
And even our thoughts could make us blush like foolish high schoolers
Those were good times
We didn't have to try too hard to make each other smile
It was a natural result of being side by side
I remember how talking about our future filled my heart to the brim
How thinking about our kids would bring tears of joy to my eyes
Remember when you first dreamed of us?
How you asked me to marry you in such an innocent way
And I answered that sure I would, never imagining you really meant it
I also recall how I couldn't believe I had fallen for you
And how when you to

For some reason I always seem to cry
When I read your feeling my eyes fill with tears
When u say your crying they instantly spill from their rims
When I know your hurting my eyes water
When I miss you too much, I simply can't hold them back
When I look at the same picture over and over again
They slide on their own accord leaving behind their wet trail
For some reason my insides twist and turn
Your feelings become my feelings
Your pain my pain
Your tears, the reason for mine's
Your hurt, my undoing
Everything inside me screams
All I am rebels, the idea of watching you in pain too much to bear
For some reason I still try
Even knowing nothing will change
I try to reach you, to ease your pain
To bring back that smile, to start again that lovely laugh
Refusing to let it die I fight and fight against them
Believing I can somehow change it
Smiling to help you through, letting you know I'm here for you
For some reason I still believe
That if I cry with you, your tears will dry
AmbiguousI see myself clearly, the picture perfect girlAmbiguous3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Standing there so smoothly and full of wit
Her smile is clearly fake, just a curve of plumb lips
The light in her eyes is barely even lit
It's amusing to watch how she thinks she fools me
As if I couldn't see her vulnerable soul through that mask
She seems to believe I'm buying this cheap act
The truth is transparent, she should know that
She stands there so very high and straight
Taking a few moments to fix her already flat hair
It's amazing the peace she seems to convey
While inside her storms won't seem to quell
I can see it plainly, her perfection disappears
As the girl across the surface coldly smirks
It's amusing to watch her arm begin to rise
A picture perfect gun firmly on her grasp
It's a ruined perfection that struggles to keep up the act
Since it's evident that this fake parade is losing the war
Got herself in a mess out of which she can't back track
I can see the fear clearly written on her shattered mas

But how long can that go on
For almost a year we were together
You promised that things would never
Be how they are now
So my question is how
How can things be this bad
How can i still feel sad
I know we both said some awful words
But the words i said were lies i hope you heard
I hope that you heard through the lies
To see that i don't want to say goodbye
I don't hate you
I love you
And i always will
I only broke one promise to you
Because i lied to you
i wish we were friends
Thats all i want and nothing more
A chance to walk through a new door
Where were friends and nothing more

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive
NightFallI seized the nightNightFall3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Held the moon by her hand
Smiled at the sleepy stars
Waved my lover goodnight
The wind spoke right into my heart
Darkness held me closely in its arms
Enveloped me in the welcoming nocturne warmth
Invited me to dance to the melody of the moonlight
I grasped the night time
Kept it safely and tight
Listened to the soothing voice of the stars
As they sang their beautiful lullabies
The moon grew bigger and brighter
As my dreams drew nearer and lighter
And I fought the drowsiness off my heavy lids
Just to catch a few more glimpses of the magic
I watched the night
The clouds drifted softly in the dark sky
They told a story of cotton- like magic
That could grant my every desire
I told the silent night
I told her all my best stories
And confessed my deepest secrets
As we watched the dawn lights start to flicker
I found the truth in the eye of the moon
Treasured my happiness in the voices of the stars
Kept my secrets in the wings of the wind
Found freedom on top of the clouds

Sometimes my thoughts can let me down
The fear of falling leave me stranded to the ground
But you give me inspiration
Lift me high above the rain
And I wanna spread my wings
And fly away
You make me wanna fly
You bring out the best in me
I'm so high, and now I'm understanding
When you change the way I see myself
With every little revelation
You open up my eyes and make me wanna fly
But you give me elevation
Lift me up when I am down
Make me see the higher ground
Sometimes I think of givin' up
But when I feel like all I got ain't enough
Then you come and prove me wrong
help me see the light, i was blind before
I open my wings, You hold my hand
You changed the way i see myself
this time hope is back
With you I know I'll fly
BooksThere's a world out there, made of wordsBooks3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That's where I go to get lost
When my life is just too much to bear on my own
The warm embrace of crisp new paper
The soothing sound of beloved turning pages
The pleasant weight of the bonded leather
The lovely scent of the tender ink
Where my heart longs to go
To get deeply and hopelessly lost
Easier to deal with our characters feelings
Than being consumed by our own
Easier to solve our characters wrongs
Than losing our heads solving those we caused
Easier to love those they love
Than to keep on loving those who don't love us
Easier to read through their life in minutes
While ours are never ending circles
That's why, in the middle of this chaotic mess
I'll run to my books and bury myself there
In futile hopes, that all my problems solve themselves

Fly away my butterfly
Don't stay long
I know you have places to go
Don't worry about leaving me behind
I'll catch up one of these days
I'm unlocking your chains
Don't even consider staying
It's not worth it
Your wings have grown
Your colors have burst
You are ready to take flight
Leave this nest behind
The rainbow awaits
There are valleys ahead
Take care of your wings
Don't let them brake
I won't be there
To heal them anymore
Your time has come
The need of me is gone
Everything I have taught you
And all will be fine
Make sure to leave fear behind
I will keep it safe
Don't worry I know
Even without my words
You will go
I just had to empty my heart
Since it's getting used to letting you fly
Don't worry about leaving me behind

That this is not funny
And that I'm breaking
I hope you are aware
Of how unfair this is
That I'm in so much misery
It hurts to even breathe
What were you thinking?
That you could disappear
And I wouldn't feel a thing?
Well I'm dying
Just so you know
You can't expect me to be fine
As I don't expect you to show up
Though that won't change the fact
That your disappearance hurts
Nobody wipes my tears
No one chases my doubts away
But even worse than that
No one holds me tight
Saying everything will be alright
What will become of me?
If I take a pencil,
It writes your name
As if it had a will of its own
If I go to sleep,
My mind summons your face
And you dance in my thoughts
For the rest of the day
Everything just everything
Reminds me of you
I can't keep living this way

Would it be too much to ask just want u in my arms?
Would it be too much to say that this time I want you to stay?
Would it be to hard to just take me with you for a change?
Would it be too late To say that for you I will go anywhere?
Would it be a waste to let the tears run down my face?
Would you hear my heart whispering your name?
Would you care if you watched my soul brake?
Would it even matter if I said those words I have kept to myself?
Would it make a difference To say them anyway?
Would you feel the same way If I said I love you?

And we've laughed

All because you broke my heart
Now you want to restart
You want to forget i exist
Forget we ever kissed
You want to forget all our memories
Forget all the difficulties
Im not going to stand in your way

So you can forget
The first moment that we met
So you can forget
The girl with blond hair
Because now you don't care
All i ever wanted was for you to be happy
And i know that you wont be with me
So this is me letting go of you
So you can do what you want to
I wont stand in your way
I'll leave and go away
Just remember this was your choice
Your choice to never hear my voice
And remember that i never hated you

Behind your closed brown orbs
I cry out my soul
Sometimes I'm scared,
Because it worries me that you'll wake

I try very hard to keep my tremors
From disrupting the bed
What if after I weep myself asleep,
You notice my drenched pillow?
The knowledge makes it harder to let my heart
Empty all of its distress
What if in the morning you see my swollen eyes?
My red face?
What if you ask for the reason I wept?
What do I say then?
Should I tell you the truth,
That my heart still breaks?
Shall I confess that even with the supposed help,
I can't forget?
I wish to keep my burden hidden
From your kind and caring eyes
I wish to keep my emptiness concealed
From your worrisome prying mind
You might look for solutions,
That won't solve a thing
You might keep looking for answers,
That no one can give
No my lips don't lie

HisLoveWhat is love?HisLove3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love is something we can't understand, grasp or achieve
Love was when God sent His Son to earth to die for sinful worthless people
Love is that act that happened so many years ago and still has the same meaning
Is love worth the pain?
Jesus died for everyone, not just for the ones who are saved,
But for the ones who would never be saved.
Yet, he died for them too knowing they'd hate him, with a passion.
To love is our command, love others like He loved you.
Love is not what husbands and wives feel for each other,
It's just the definition the world has given it.
That's why movies and novels try to explain it to no avail, they just can't.
Love is way higher than them
Because the God of Love cannot be comprehended,
Much less limited to humans descriptions.
Yet we are called to it
And no, that exhilarating feeling you get for a while that 'vanishes' is not love,
That's an attraction.
God created us a certain way, we get jolts we swoon we sigh
cuz its part of our nature it's i
