I Used To (Raw Words)I used to be able to
explore every crevasse in my mind
weave dreams into reality,
create universes with a blink of the eye,
live a million lives and possibly more.
But now all I can do is sit and think
"I used to..."
My hands won't work,
my mind won't see,
and my muse speaks in a foreign tongue.
is nothing but a cracked silhouette
of my older self.
The reminders and scars of the past
the trials and pain life brings
the fear and expectations of the future
Put a stop to all I have done.
and made me realize
I am not who I was anymore.
I used to, I used to, I used to.
I can't do, I can't do, I can't do.
I used to never think about what I couldn't do.
I used to reach my goals.
I used to be who I was
because I never focused on who I wasn't.
I am who I am now,
because of the words "I used to".
I am blinded.
I am a fool.
I have failed.
Because I failed to learned from my failure.
But now I finally see.
I still have the time and will
to be able to do what I used to
and make it better

Sleep pulls me; I drift away
I dream a place where anything goes
A paradise in my mind
(My personal Hell)
Happiness all around me
Everyone's safe and sound
What was lost is now found
I'm free to be whatever I please
(Lies, lies are all I see)
No past no future to worry about
No burdens on my shoulders
No fears to face
No sorrows to fight
(I can't do anything)
If I fall, I wont get hurt
I feel no pain, I will not bleed
The only screams were screams of joy
as I mingle with fragmented memories; now whole
(Get me out of here)
I can smile without a mask
There are no secrets; nothing's hidden
No rules to follow; no rules to break
I am my own master
(I am my own slave)
I could stay here forever
in this perfect place
Too good to be a dream
A world created for me
And then in the blink of an eye
Everything falls apart
I have to say goodbye again
Paradise is lost
(as I greet Reality)

I'm shouting in your face, tearing your heart out
Nothing like what you wanted I'm nothing short of perfect
A disaster maybe to you, but to my ego I'm a masterpiece
So in love with myself, hardly any for anyone else
This irony is hardly situational,
I can say, oh I say;
Love me, love me, love me
Sex and cigarettes are the only things I know
Lying, cheating, getting by on fake luck
I can hardly truly stand on my own,
A hypocrite of the worst kind,
Dare you question my audacity?
So sublime an experience;
I cannot escape from myself,
So heart-broken with a shattered past
I dare not try to fix myself,
I'm better off a cold bitter bitch.

The soldiers march.
With orders by their master. To defend their King.
Without a second thought, they eliminate every obstacle.
Giving Heart. Giving Life. Giving Faith.
Each step brings them closer. Each step brings them closer to their end.
The soldiers collapse.
There is no retreat. There is no fear.
One swing, and down they go. No tears and no regrets.
The King stays behind, watching his army. The Queen herself goes to battle.
She fights for her love and master. Feared, but not invincible, she falls.
The closer they come.
They are all gone. Only the King stands.
No army to fight for him. No pawns to sacrifice.
He cannot escape. He is surrounded.
A smug smile, and a topple. Not even the King is spared.
They claimed victory.

All I wish to do is mend
Your broken heart.
You may think it isn't true
But please, just let me start.
I don't know what happened,
Between you and I last year.
All I know is we grew closer
Day by Day.
I know you care for someone else
But I can't help but feel this way.
Valentines day is near
But would you even care
How much I'd do to help you,
Near and dear?
I shall tape and glue
What has fallen out of you,
Your big bright smile.
I'll do my best
To mend your
