Never Bow Down. (Failure In Denial)Your poisoned words are your weapon of choice,
Paralyzing me with just the sound of your voice.
Whispering your lies and getting under my skin,
But I can see right through you 'cause you're so paper thin!
Are you really so heartless?
Behind your lies is there any truth?
Can you tell I don't want this!?
I will never bow down to you!
You say across my skin is where my short comings compile,
And that my scars remind you I'm a failure in denial!
No matter what you've always had the upper hand,
Holding me under for reasons none understand!
Are you really so heartless?
Behind your lies is there any truth?

God, it hurts like heaven;
Longing for all your affection,
Every bit of your attention,
You're a divine intervention.
In this life that's turned to hell.
I can't help it when I reminisce,
In moments that are just like this,
I remember when we had our kiss,
And now how much I really miss,
The times when we weren't separated,
Were the best memories that I've created,
To reunite is long awaited,
I feel like I'm incarcerated,
In my own personal hell.
I can't help it when I think of you...
I hope one day we'll say "I do."
But for now I have to struggle through,
Until the day I get to you...
It won't be long, lov
Stenciled Smiles on Paper HeartsI don't like to feel this wayStenciled Smiles on Paper Hearts5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
There must be something I can say
Cause I hate just watching you
When I know the pain you're going through
You're not alone; I've been where you are
Contemplating where I'll place my next scar
Hiding razor kisses underneath long sleeves
It doesn't make it better; nothing is achieved
All you'll earn are the scars you've got and
The lesson learned is the lesson forgotten
You feel like no one's there, no one cares what you do
Let me put it to you straight: That is never true
I was shunned, pushed away many times before
Then I realized it was I who had closed the door

What's taking up your time?
You tell me not to worry and you swear you're really fine
Please open up to me
Tell me of your fears
You know I'll kiss the scars and I'll wipe away your tears
Don't keep it to yourself
You know you're not alone
I couldn't live my life without you ever coming home
I'd be so lost inside
I wouldn't recognize
The person that I see in the reflection of your eyes
Just tell me you're okay, and that you love me too
I don't know what I'd do
If ever I lost you…

It's what influenced this writing.
I can't control it, I can't fight it,
Barely know it, and can't hide it.
I'm just a mess with no ambition;
So much less than I envisioned.
How much more can I endure?
I don't know, I'm not too sure...
I'm not myself when I'm alone,
And yet I find I'm on my own.
I'm like a lock without a key,
There is no perfect fit for me!...
You're not alone.
Don't think like that.
Pick your head up.
I believe in you.
You can do it.
I love you...
Are you here to prove me wrong?
To make me see the brighter dawn?
With this darker side, this part of me,
How can you love

Till all the tears you cry turn to rain...
Every word I speak is true...
Every single 'I love you...'

They're all of you, that I've kept

But when you're gone
My heart threatens to collapse
Because it's broken in two
And it's missing its other half

I can't breathe...
I'm on the edge of insanity...
Part mirage, part nightmare...
Please come back!

Seem to stay the same
Shade of lifeless grey
Can nothing ease the pain?
When I see your face
My heart begins to race
I long for your embrace
I'd kill for just a taste
(Of your sweet kiss)
But when I look around
You're nowhere to be found
I hear the maddening thoughts
As they begin to sound
Inside of my head
That are best left unsaid
Locked inside my mind
They chip me away
Just a little at a time
There have always been
Things I've held inside
That I wish I could confess
Or just get off of my mind

How all of this came to be
When I already know
She can do better than me
I feel like she's the desert
And whenever I hold her hand
I realize that makes me
Nothing more than a grain of sand
I can't help but ask myself
How is it that she's with me?
I'm just a mess when I'm alone
And I'm fucking up constantly
In every way, shape, and form
Like the calm of the night
Or like the eye of a storm
(And if that storm were to break...)
I always have the thought
That if people were rain
l would be just a drop
And she'd be the hurricane...
Feather FragileHer heart is feather fragileFeather Fragile7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hidden so deep inside
Fractured and hard to handle
Her broken lullaby
Ghostly words echoing through her
A coldness like winter
Any moment may undo her
Lonely and splintered
Clouds heavy with the tears of an angel
That was caught and is hopelessly tangled
In the web of lies that the world has weaved
A fabrication she thought she believed
Her halo slips and it falls to the cold ground
Shatters asunder; not a single sound
Her tears soon follow and they washed away
Any little hope that might have remained
Her heart, so feather fragile
Behind a lock and a matching key
Nobody will ever handle

I hear the raindrops tap the street
Forgetting all I've fallen for, I can't go on
I can't be more
Hidden behind tapestries
Adorned with painful memories
Slowly realize what you've done, I've lost it all
I've come undone
A fallen angel at your feet
A broken mess at your mercy
Heartless in my time of need, you walked away
You watched me bleed
Holding out for fate unknown
A missing piece, an empty home
Living life with no one there, I know I'm lost
But I don't care
Within the boundaries of myself
Crying out for someone's help
Wishing for, with all my heart
They'll stop the pain and light the dar
Open WoundsWhen you tell me I'm worth nothing, this isn't news to me.Open Wounds1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On the surface I look fine 'cause it's inside that I'm suffering.
Trying to find a way to possibly numb the pain...
Trying to break the chains, but these efforts are all in vain.
Maybe if my heart just suddenly stopped beating,
It wouldn't hurt this much and I'd get over this empty feeling...
If I could stop the rain from pouring down from the sky,
Would you be glad I'm alive? Would you finally be satisfied?
So much of me is wasted trying to be your perfect.
Even when it works you make me feel like it isn't worth it.

Is it hard to conceive?
Draw in your last breath, then-
Your last breath will leave.
Isn't it strange to think,
That there's a timer above your head?
A countdown you can't see,
That finishes when you're dead.
Don't you ever wonder,
What it'll be like when you're gone?
I bet the world will keep on spinning.
There will be another dawn.
But the harsh reality behind it-
We're all going to die.
There's no reason to try to fight it
Not even to question why.
It makes me wish that I could have a little more to give,
Because I'm not afraid of how I'll die...
I'm afraid of how I'll

Allowing no sleep for these tired eyes
Telling me things that I don't want to hear
Am I really heartless or am I numb?
Is this simply darkness of am I blind?
Try to claw my way back into the sun
Leave a bloody trail for others to find
Following the sound of a lonely heart
Brought only false hope that I might be freed
I was led astray in the howling dark
The one way out is through the blood I bleed
I've given up hope of living in peace
I only wish now that my heart would cease

As I watch this city burn away
So close, I almost had it
I lost it all when I turned away
My heart is full of broken dreams
Shattered hopes and memories
Everything that causes pain
Like a drop of acidic rain
The wind blows and it carries with it
Whispered words and the sorrows hidden
Sanctuary among the ashes
But the arson has one more match lit
And I find, the flames attractive
As I watch this city burn away
Was so close, I almost had it
I lost it all when you turned away
I regret every single moment
Without you with your hand in mine
I regret never even knowing
You loved me the entire time

I don't know where to go
Where is your hand, I need
Have you abandoned me..?
I'm not always this blind
But you're so hard to find
I cannot answer for
The thoughts that cross my mind
I'm not always okay
Nothing can ease this pain
I've got to answered for
All the mistakes I've made
I guess I should have known
I'd end up on my own
I'm not encased in stone
My heart beats best alone
I'm not always alright
I lost my grip, so tight
I've got to make up for
All of this wasted time
I'm not always upset
I'd rather just forget
I cannot make up for
All that I regret...

There once was a man as happy could be
He'd sing and he'd laugh most cheerfully
He was strong, he was steady and smart
He had but one woman who lay claim to his heart
To him the most beloved person, his wife
She was his everything, his meaning to life
Seemingly from nowhere, his lover fell ill
And felt deaths hand, a breath-taking chill

If no one can see then who will know that I failed?
I swear I really tried and that I gave it my all;
I'm painfully aware of every one of my flaws...
I simply lay awake unsure if it's night or day,
Covered and consumed by the weight of this crushing darkness.
I hide from my mistakes and I hope that they'll go away,
Believing myself when I say that I'm really heartless...
Now more than ever I need to feel like I did before;
Like a million white roses missing none of their thorns.
You were the only reason I had left to be saved,
To fill the hole in my heart that was becoming my grave...

Every night I make it through only makes the hurt worse
Every second is my suffering, every breath I take, the curse
I've wasted all these moments trying so hard to pretend
That there's something still inside me that allows my heart to mend
It's like the air I breathe attempts at suffocating me
Until I collapse onto the the ground and my chest gives one last heave
And I try so hard to be, beyond the shadow of a doubt
The person there beside you that you can't live without
I know I'm nothing more than the dirt beneath my feet

Time is slipping by as the sky line begins to darken,
While I'm left standing here trying to be forgotten...

Not once do I remember being happy with me!
Violently to the heavens!
