Lie To MeFingertips lace around my ribs
And pull at my skin
As my breath catches
At the coolness of your touch.
Calm these trembling hands
And hold them tight in yours.
I'll move my lips on yours
Just so you don't have to.
Hearts beat faster and
My breath shudders with insecurity.
Press my body close to yours
So I don't shatter into fragments.
Lie to me one more time.
Tangle your legs in mine,
Brush your lips along my neck.
Make me feel alive.

The night where everyone lives in darkness. An everlasting night.
I want it to come I wish for it to come, a time when everyone suffers but I always find myself crying whispering for that to never happen, for no one else to suffer.
I'll stay up all night trying to undo the reckless wish I made and asking for all the pain and agony and suffering to be given to me so that no one else will feel it.
I wish for an everlasting night and then ask for an everlasting day where it will just be me in some dark corner of the universe suffering so that no one else has to.
And then the sun rises.
Slowly and subtly.
And I realise that while I'm here in pain everyone else is sound asleep.
Both my wishes are true; I have the night while everyone else has the day. The darker the night, the brighter the dawn.
I'm the one that steals the pain during the night and I'm the one who gets to see the dawn. I suffer but I see what no one el

HauntedI could feel your presence again last night.Haunted2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Why, why do you keep coming from where I can't reach you...
It's done. Death did us part. Don't you understand!
Do not haunt me anymore.
Go back to where you belong...
To the living.
My pen and ICareful thoughts and many wordsMy pen and I4 years ago in Scraps More Like This
my pen and I do weave,
from the shadows, from the depths,
the darkness told to me.
Darkness growing ever closer,
as the time goes by...
I stay awake to keep away
the darkened dreams that rise.

I take my valium with cola, I'm a very complex lady.
Full of contradictions. I sometimes always answer vaguely.
If you ask me how I am, you better know I'll always lie
and if I fall in love with you, you're probably gonna die.
Life's not always kind to me, I try to stay upbeat
but please don't ask me how I am if I cry in the street.
I don't like to be looked at, I hate to be ignored,
I'm right, you're wrong, so be prepared for a broken record.
I stick up for the little guy, unless that guy is me
and if I do you a favour then I'd never charge a fee
I'm really bad at rhyming, but I think you kinda guessed
whoops, I'm sorry, backtrack now, I guess that I transgressed.
I'm sugarly sweet but bitter, I think that hope's a noose
I'm funny and outgoing, but somehow a recluse.
People mistake sweetness for weakness, I tell them I don't mind
I can run rings around you without being unkind.
Generally I'd have to say, I'm not my bigges
SeriouslyWhy can't you seeSeriously3 years ago in Scraps More Like This
What I see in front of me
You have a mirror
Look and see whats clear
Everything I love about you
Is written on your face as proof
Don't you understand
That you don't have to be grand
For me to love you and proclaim it
You don't have to go through all this shit
Because you are beautiful right now
Even with your face in a frown?
You don't have to conform
You don't have to fit into the 'norm'
So don't dirty the pages of your life
With societies magnetic strife
Put down that knife and blade
Extinguish the fire of pain
Your life is not the price to be paid
Your life is wiped of stains
At leastYou were there when I slippedAt least3 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Something inside just skipped
The ground fell from beneath me
And I fell into the sea
My world dimmed and numbness set in
Water choked me and I forgot how to swim
My body got cold
And death had a hold
But you were there underneath me
You were where you needed to be
Your breath kept me warm
You made me glad I was born
I felt your heart beat
And finally found my feet
Maybe I'm not strong
But at least I have you to help me along
