Don't give a thought
A whisper is all that would be lost
Softly blowing across your cheek
Calming a soulful oblique
Darling, don't you go
Stay and listen to my words once more
Hear as they breath a life
A life without a single strife
Love is merely a cautious tale
That stays a rose, becomes a grail
Oh dear, don't drop your tears
Cease declaring faithless years
For a tender touch brings about
A ripple of faded doubt
But trust me, precious
You're not alone...
No ExistenceClose your eyes,No Existence4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For colours do not matter.
Put your hands over your ears,
For sounds are no longer sweet.
Because living hurts.
Because you no longer exist.
Feel the wind one last time,
For your memory is but a silent echo being carried away.
Raise your arms,
For freedom is coming soon.
Leap off the ground,
For youll be flying soon.
Brink of InsanityBrink of Insanity4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Waves of sadness
Roll over my soul
Of a story untold
Afraid to let go
On the brink of insanity
But nobody knows
When will this tide
Wash me ashore
To be free of this burden
To feel it no more
Been drifting at sea
Ever so long
This ocean claims my soul
For all I've done wrong
I can see the light
Through this tormenting place
Reach out to it
Then I remember your face
Begin to sink
In the freezing tide
Beneath this sea
Is where I hide

Because now you
And your new best friend

Isnt it weird
I say will happen
You are off having fun
And I am too
But now every time
I think about you
I feel blue
Its funny how
You lie to me
And dont tell me
I love how you never
Think I will find out
And then I just get more
When I do
Maybe I should just stop pretending
That I am really happy
When truly, honestly

i can fake a thousand smiles

and hide behind this
if it makes you think
that i'm doing better

i'll hold my head up high
when you walk past-
make it look like i'm
too busy talking to a friend
to spare you a glance
if it means you think
that i've moved on

i'll preoccupy myself with

i can get my hands on-

All I want is the truth

To be understood

To be with you
Cause all I want is to love you

i'm feeling a little awry today;
a tired waste of space.
my life's become monotonous-
my limbs suspended- controlled-
by routine strings.
i stare out into nothingness
because nothing's what i've become.
i've been on this merry-go-round
for far too long-
i don't remember what it's like to simply
i'm so sick of doing what i'm told.
i have going through the motions-sickness.
i look, i smile, i nod my head-
but inside i'm breeding discontent
for this marrionette life.
i want you to come and cut the strings-
to help me escape from this for a little while.
i want you to make me a real girl-
to be my blue

But I want to
But I dont
So I cant
And it sucks
And Im lost
And my insides are inside out
And this blows
And I hate being young
And unsure of this
And I want someone to tell me what to do
And what the answer is
But no one can
Cause no one really knows
Cause Im just confusing
Are you confused?
Cause I am
And this is killing me
But only sort of
But really a lot

Why do I have to like you

I just dont get it anymore!
I thought i had it figured out, but hell no
I guess I was wrong
one minute I hate you, you make me feel so bad
then the next everything is okay, and im happy, giddy, glad.
well fuck you and those beautiful blue eyes
after all Ive only seen them twice
but they haunt me nevertheless
I just dont get it, I dont get you

My life is one the edge, as I am.
Noise drifts up as I move closer.
Still fighting myself, tormenting myself.
Lights are bright...reminding me of city lights on the horizon.
Looking up to the black starry night sky...looking for a sign of something.
"I am here...you don't have to do this."
Startled I turn around.
The angel of mercy, and love stands.
Pleading me, begging me.
I argue back.
"What is left? I've lost him!"
With one momentary second, his face flashed before my eyes.
He's gone again.

When I tell you what I have to say.
I can't believe I'm saying no,
When I'm not sure that I want it to be that way.
It's something I want so bad,
It's always on my mind.
But my emotions are fogging my vision,
Trying to make me blind.
Tomorrow is the day I'll tell you,
The things I'm not sure I want to say.
I fear tomorrow more than you'll ever know,
I wish there was another way.
We need to know that we are ready,
We need to be completely sure.
So until then,
That is the moment that I'll live for.

The dreamMy eyelids closed,The dream7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My spirit rose,
Within my blissful dream.
Inside this world,
To the naked eye unseen,
Among these tales,
Filled with wins and fails,
I looked for the key that gleamed,
While the night was young,
The battle was won,
Against an empire tainted with greed,
When the clock hit 11,
I listened in heaven,
As angels sang to please,
At 12 o'clock that night,
I entered a perilous fight,
Against a vampire who knew I wouldn't succeed,
As dusk became dawn,
I flew past a fawn,
For I had no time to spare,
I could not dream another,
For I heard the sounds of my mother,
And I knew finished was my id

A Question of Balance
Subatomic reactive quarks deliberate
Minute aspects of the choices to be made
A face in the shadows, peering through
What seems to be at hand, turns to sand
Dust upon the earth, liquid conversations
Resources understanding within conscience
Letters written to the frost and nucleus
Memorabelia celtic mindset flames dance
The smell lingers for weeks
Wrought elements struck against tones
Harder than diamond cutting the heat
A discovery every second first
No room to breathe other than cyclic
Toxic purity burns ultraviolet
Eyes are behind minds are behind the future
Catching up to the present blessings

I wish flames, I wish water,
Falling from the sky,
Falling down on us,
Burning before cleansing,
Two steps back…
To take four steps forward.
I wish for freedom. (Before the sun rises)
I wish for you. (Tonight)
And I paint my nails three different colours,
Four, four and two,
Equals ten, ten fingers,
Ten hearts, seven in love,
Three, still, tranquil, without a flutter.
Butterflies. Flutter. From. My. Pencil.
My blunt pencil draws, blurred lines, from A to Z,
From tree to tree.
I draw ribbons, binding me to you.
Binding me to you.

Every day I don't talk to her, I cease to smile.
Every day I don't see her , I feel empty inside.
Everyday she doesn't call, I'm not happy.
Every day she isn't my best friend, My heart aches with the pain of her hate.
Every day I feel regret, every day I miss her.
She was the medicine to my terminal illness,
She was what kept me alive and healthy,
but now she's no longer here and I feel sick yet again.
I need her.
I wish she knew that I cared
I wish she knew how much she meant to me.
I wish she could see what this is doing to me
I wish she could would forgive me, so the emtyness will go away.
So I could feel complete again.

What this burden is I bear.
Do I hold a Christian cross?
Do I suffer from a loss?
Am I drowning? Am I burning?
And this world just keeps on turning.
Until it stops I wander far,
Searching for the brightest star.
When days of old are days of new
Maybe it is then I'll find you.
Over mountain, over water,
Looking for my soulful other.
Falling deep into the dark,
Hear the calling of the lark.
Looking up, see the light.
It is time to end fight.
Letting go of all our fears,
Wiping away all our tears.
Holding close the ones we love.
Praying to the God above.
Now together, now forever.

Whispering my words
No response do I hear back
Except echos from my memory
I walk through empty rooms
Listen for any sound
Peer into the shadows
Wishing I weren't so alone
I lay back down
Wishing I could be held
Missing the warmth of someone
Who is no longer there
I close my eyes
Waiting for the dreams
Praying to keep the nightmares
Away from my sleep
I dream of peace
Of warmth and love
Arms that hold me
Secure in my world
That security leaves
The walls come tearing up
Walls of stone, walls ice
Trapped within the grief
I feel myself pull away
To try to live without touch
Moving away from all
