What is it?I was told i was easy to read.What is it?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That it was a very simple deed.
But somehow no one knows when i'm hurt.
Walking around, wiping my tears with my shirt.
So now i think why would anyone care.
If anyone did it would truly be rare.
I don't want to be looked at with pity.
Like i am scared, lonely and damaged little kitty.
And i am left on the ground to starve.
While they use their blades to carve.
Out of my body, my still beating heart.
The people i trust it too will rip it apart.
If you can tell when i'm sad.
Then is it really that bad.
To ask me whats wrong.
And help me stay strong.
Then again...I might be asking too much.

as she wills herself to forget about him,
but it feels like so long ago since she's ever heard ''I love you''
since she feels like her heart is silently dying
because the edges are cracked
as she silently hums her favorite song,
but once she finally realizes that you always sang her song,
she cries herself to sleep
until she can't feel anymore pain.
Whenever she wakes up,
she feels an aching in her chest
as she looks into the mirror to see circles under her eyes
that are covering up her beautiful blue eyes
that had you chasing for her.
(and she never has felt so lost and alone before.)
She wonders if she was ever strong,
because now she finally realizes that you were the only thing
that ever made her feel like she was on top of the world.
Half As MuchYou hurt me; I make excuses for you.Half As Much4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You start a fight; I feel only love for you.
You lie to me; I say it will never happen again.
You dictate my life; I say it is because you want to keep me safe.
You start doing drugs; I ignore it.
You start coming and going at strange hours; I pretend not to care.
You start hitting me; I try not to show how much it hurts.
We break up; it rips me apart inside.
We see each other randomly; it gets awkward.
We start dating other people; it doesn't feel like I'll ever want anyone but you.
We try being friends; I dont like the person I am with you.
We both think that you should move away; I never thought you actually would.
We never see each other; I think this may hurt more.
I still love you; I never talk about you.
I dont think I will ever get over you; I hope I am wrong.
I try falling in love with other people; I know I never will.
I try to forget you; I know now that it will never happen.
I still miss you sometimes; I try to ignore it.
I try to imagin
Best FriendI'm afraid to look at that photoalbum to see your smiling face looking back at me..Best Friend9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't want to lose the happiness that is already slowly fading away.
The times you and I spent together all seem so far away and yet it only seems like yesterday that we were laughing together.
If I go back there to that place I'm sure that I will cry.
Though that place is comforting, I know that I can't rely on it forever and someday I'll have to stand on my own two feet.
I want to be able to smile and say I'm doing great. But even so, saying something that is only partially true breaks my heart. Although I'm happy and doing fine I still miss you to death.
I think about you all the time and miss the days we spent together.
The only one who could make the pain go away completely and make me feel happy all the time. The only one I considered my best friend. The <i>
In the darkI say I love the darkIn the dark9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I love to be alone
But what's really in the dark
You now we'll never really know
Cause once you turn on the light
Its not dark anymore.
I feel things crawling on me
I see faces that arent there
I hear voices calling to me
Please some one help me
Isnt anybody there?
They say Taylor come and be with us
Dont you like the dark they say?
Is it just my mind playing tricks on me?
Or are they really there.
I can't stand it when they call to me
I don't want to be with them
Someone take me out of the dark
I hope this is all just pretend
The darkness wraps around me
Making my screams muffled
Its like the darkness is a person
Giving me a kiss
Yet it's lips are so very cold.
I think Im going crazy
I can't take it anymore
I run to the door and turn on the light
The darkness is no more
The faces are all gone
The voices are all mute
Those cold lips can't kiss me anymore
The light has over come the dark.
I feel the warmth
No Dreams For The DamnedAn evil calling,No Dreams For The Damned5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
For miniscule sin.
Wont you please,
Just let me in?
An evil calling,
From the abyss of my brain.
And with such ease,
It can numb all the pain.
There's no turning back,
It's already begun.
Will a savior please answer?
But there is no one.
A tint of pure black,
Upon my dark heart.
And just like a cancer,
It's spreading will start.
From the core of the carcass,
And the hate festered within.
To the blood on my fingers,
And the wounds on my skin.
A shrouded shadow's caress,
As the darkness still lingers,
Black and bitterly.
No dreams for the damned,
No hope for the condemned.
There is no hope for me,
And no future ahead.
good byeI loved you oncegood bye10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
More than words could say
But now that love has gone away
I gave you my heart
To hold forever
I was foolish to think we would always be together
My heart you accepted
With love still to prove
Even knowing this, you still broke it in two
Now here I stand
Alone and Depressed
Not wanting to live, I have nothing left
No one knows how I feel
Because they choose not to listen
But maybe my death will teach them a lesson
As I reach for the gun
My last thoughts are of you
And how I wish your love remained true
I pull back on the trigger
And whisper good-bye
Please don't be upset, for we all live to die
RemembranceThe 11th hour, 11th day, 11th month, in 1918,Remembrance6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For the soldiers, civilians and lives in-between,
Two minutes of silence saved for the ones who lost,
For the enemy lines that were conquered and crossed.
Poppies poised for a blood-red reminder,
who fought to bring peace for a world much kinder.
For the Flander's Field fighters in trenches and mud,
Our history now stained with their bullets and blood.
The sound of the bugle rings out loud and clear,
Words of larks and love begin to appear.
21 guns pointed with pride, fire a farewell,
As Peace Tower sings out the sound of its bell.
Wars that scarred and stripped away,
The lives and the loss to which tribute we pay.
The families, the fallen, lest we forget,
The sacrifices made with a brave bayonet.

A single tear streaks down my cheek
As he kisses me good bye ever so sweet
I never thought this would happen to me
But I thought wrong as you can see
Saying good bye isn't as easy at it seems
Our love breaking apart at the seams
Now You and I shall say good bye
Our lives popped as if we were in a bubble
But really our relationship had some trouble
But we can still be friends, or so he says
One week from now we wont even nod our heads
One month from now we won't rememeber eachothers names
Two months from now we won't even recall what we once had
Is this how life is going to be
If so why didn't anyone tell me
But now I know
I had to figure it out on my own
Good bye to you good bye to me
What does this single tear mean
Did I like you more than I want to believe
Is this good bye forever
Or only a little bit
But thats why we cry
For when we say good bye

tales of blue-white
We are curled
in your attic
to the endless rain
and your jukebox
that plays only
old diner music
you ask me if
God has ever looked
down on the earth
and plucked someone
out of pity
i tell you no
and as i walk
the muddy lane away
from your house
i feel inside
my raincoat pocket
your skeleton key
i hear the jukebox
and i hear the gun
and i guess that
i was wrong

The deadly arms keep on ticking,
every second taking a breath of life.
Slowly, but firmly they keep on stealing
any priceless granule that filters by.
An unstoppable violent flame consuming,
suffocating everything that is ahead,
burning away everything that is breathing,
letting the memories collapse dead.
So many mistakes committed
severed by geared mechanics.
Countless hours passing short-lived
without any time to wonder why.
I only wish for time to stay suspended
for an opportunity to catch a breath
And say my last good-bye.

some will take it some will deny
its your choice to rush
pace your self
or run around
if you are like me
it is difficult at times
but the only thing to do
is just keep your mind
no yelling or screaming at the person in front of you
don't worry they will soon move
don't get angry at the little things you siblings do
they will see that it doesn't annoy you
so the next time you see someone rushing tell them to relax
everything is fine
Awaken your mindAwaken your mind to the hatred,Awaken your mind11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
my soul no longer holds anything sacred,
body and spirit has been infested,
by the screeches of the ones never rested
We walk the land as if always interested,
never seeing that our lives are journeys never trusted.
Live it off as if always believing,
with our eyes wide open; we're never seeing,
the stench of the truth while we're bleeding,
serum of the pain; yet we're always retrieving.
Fate at our feet slowly leaving,
until the day we stop agreeing.
Many nod at the mention of destiny,
thinking that it would bring them serinity,
an event that lingers with cruelty,
it's not worth waiting for; it's not reality.
Just a tale for the lonely,
another face of Death that will never hold me.
Awaken your mind and pave your own road,
destiny is a story that should never be told,
for it bears the cruelest of holds,
from blossoming youth to dieing old.
Never should it spread; it just brings the cold,
dwelling in the pits of horror as it glows.
