The deafening sound of silence creeps.
No more shall the daytime creatures play,
Nor the autumnal colors greet the day.
For every season must come to an end;
Moving us along the evanescent bend
Of a new dawn; a time of new beginnings,
When everybody will collect their winnings.
For winter is coming.
Winter is here.

five-stars, first class suffering.
In my arteries there is acid instead of blood,
I'm in delicious luxury pains.
Darkness is beautiful, craziness is sacred,
dirt is shining, Baudelaire is God,
Marilyn Manson is an archangel.
You're the centre of my craziness,
everything is going around you.
that is a slow death on fire.

Stark lying gray...
There's still a sparkle in her eye,
It must be done away with...
Quickly, before she can break free.
But she can always dream,
And always will...
She dreams of empty fields,
Long lost days spent staring at clouds;
Of endless fathomless oceans,
Of deep secluded forests, dense and green,
Of flowers in a meadow, serene...
Into a vague place, near the river,
Where her heart wandered through tangled vines,
Standing at the top of the great hill,
Plundering the world for all of it's wonders,
And all was still and quiet within her heart.
Sometimes she dwells much deeper, far darker,
Back to the days of old...
When her soul ran free,
Lost and alone, yet never so,
Wandering the vast four-treed forest,
Seizing the fortress on safari,
At one with the lions, her kindred spirits..
Mere kittens, cute little things...
Gazing at the fox, who watched over her,
Like an ageless shadow
Sat in solitude, at the edge of the thicket.
They are beautiful.

it is my heartbeat, the crazy running of my poisoned blood
the song and I are one
I am singing like a dying angel
crying, laughing, playing with emotions
the guitar solo is the scream of my suffering heart
I paint the sky in red with pain
sparkle in the night
I am the flame of your soul's fire
I am suffering for your inside peace
I die for you
look at me, people, watch me
adore me, care for me, love me

My father always told me that there's more to life
but how could you ever breathe
when your lungs feel collapsed
and your heart feels like a battle wound
because you can never feel again?
I always tried to believe in myself
because I knew I was a fighter
since I never had a chance to be anything else.
I always had to wash your scars off for you
and be your little solider
as you cried in my arms
because you said that you lost your heart in the war.
It always killed me when you cried,
I'll never be the same again.
You always pleaded the words ''please be better than me''
like they were a part of a broken song
that came from right inside your heart,
but all you ever wanted
was for me to not be like a shadow of you.
This life is full of nothing but hurt.
You always told me
that I was growing up to be more like you every day,
and you were always afraid
because you said that you never wanted me to have your mind.
I was growing more insane by t

I never knew that life was like a game,
press one wrong button
and you'll be broken forever.
I've had enough of you,
but I can never let you go.
You've always owned my heart,
I might as well just save myself before I drown.
You may as well just forget me
because I'm just another chord to a broken song.
Perfect"If only I was alluring."Perfect3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She said looking into the mirror.
"If only I was fearless."
"I was flawless."
She swiftly leaves her room
Without a trace of confidence.
She takes a step on the sidewalk.
As she slowly takes a breath,
She begins to step off the sidewalk.
Her mind was completely dismissed of the thought of looking both ways.
A deadly mistake.
If she had been paying attention..
That car speeding near her
Wouldn't have been able to reach her.
She collapses to the ground
And closes her eyes.
This is it,
She opens her eyes
To see a room full of furniture.
All of which was white.
She spots a man.
"Have I perished?"
The man doesn't respond.
Instead he says,
"I will grant you one wish."
The girl is bewildered.
Not knowing what to say
She blurts out,
"I want to be perfect."
He does what she wants
And she becomes perfect.
He gives her a mirror
But she looks the same.
She feels the same too.

I don't understand why
people are always afraid of monsters,
if monsters always live inside your mind.
You always told me that my mind was like a danger line
because if you stepped too far
you would lose yourself forever,
but I never knew that being insane was the new trend.
I've always painted my nails black
ever since the day you've been gone
because it makes my mind go on a runaway train to memory lane.
It's no secret that you're like my oxygen.
I don't understand why I need sleep
when my dreams never exist.
All of my dreams were about you,
so I stopped dreaming.
I'm so happy,
because I finally found my friends-
they're in my head.
A Truck Drivers WifeI have been privileged,A Truck Drivers Wife1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
To hold in my life,
The title that’s known
As a truck driver’s wife.
Now, women all know
Being married is rough.
But, marry a trucker,
And then let’s talk tough!
The miles that they run,
And, the job that they do,
Gives us grey hairs,
And fries our nerves too.
And when they get lonely,
And call up the house,
Who’s there for ‘em to turn to?
it ain’t Mickey Mouse!
But, through all the turmoil,
The stress, struggle, and strife,
Those men appreciate
The finer things in life,
And they’ll thank their lucky stars
For a truck drivers wife!

but don't cry like a bitch when you feel the pain.
When my fist hits your face
and your face hits the floor
I know you'll pretend
like you never felt a thing.
Your biggest scar has always been your heart.
You have a troubled mind
and a low self-esteem to match.
I swear that I'm not hurting.
You're just another broken song,
but we can be monsters together.
I swear that I'm not running.
Let's take a trip down memory lane,
do you still remember me?
(Just because I'm here doesn't mean that I'm not broken.)

as I lose your heartbeat in the wind
because we've all been broken for too long.
You've been holding on to thin air
as your hands turn into ice
because you'll never learn how to love again.
I felt beautiful when I was starving
because I felt like I would be closer to you
since all I ever wanted was your heart,
but your heart was too fragile to ever touch.
You always counted down to five
and held a shotgun in your hand
because you felt like you were talking to the dead
whenever you closed your eyes,
but you were only lying to your heart.
(You always enjoyed writing false messages on my skin
that were like broken messages
you always forgot to say out loud
just so you could feel
as you put your lips on mine
because you said that my lips were always your home.
We would always be the best at losing ourselves
since we always lost ourselves in the dark.)
You never believed in yourself
because you felt like you were nothing,
but you were always everything.<

And the beautiful orange and purple sunset above her.
She felt she could die here.
"I'd die for you."
The girl says quietly to her friend.
The boy asked.
"I'd die for you."
"Why would you die for me?"
The boy asked.
The girl began.
"You are my friend,"
"Like a brother,"
"Life without you,"
"Wouldn't be living."
The boy asked.
The girl said smiling.
The girl sees a car weaving in,
And out of traffic.
A drunk driver
The girl thinks.
She reaches to get her phone to call the police,
But the car is going too fast.
There isn't enough time.
The car begins to go for her friend.
Adrenaline rushing through her veins,
She pushes him to the side.
Just in time,
Before the car slammed into her.
The next thing she knew,
She was on the ground.
She then sees the boy's face,
And begins to smile.
"I told you,"
"I said I'd die for you."
As she whispers,

Thunder and lighting greeted her into a harsh world,
Where light never quite beat darkness,
Even in the brightest day, a shadow remained,
Covering half the beauty she was blessed with,
She found solace underground, where the needles
Strewn about her feet were forgotten,
And her lilac eyes didn't strain to see.
There are bodies touching hers, but she does not feel.
The warmth left her skin years ago.

And then it all came to me-
I failed you,
and you failed me.
We failed each other.
Even love wasn't enough to save us anymore.
We were two broken people who were dead before we even got a chance to live.
Just because we were breathing doesn't mean that we were alive.
We made the perfect story
of two broken teenagers
who had broken souls
that never healed.
I failed you,
and you failed me.
Even love can't save us anymore.
We failed each other

Soiled with our

During the spring, you are my flower
During the summer, you are my sunshine
During the fall, you are my color
I want to hold you close to me everyday
I want to dream in your eyes
I want to be the reason why you smile
Looking at the night time sky,
I gave each star in the universe a
reason why I love you so
I eventually ran out of stars,
but I still have more reasons for why
I love you dearly and with all my heart and soul
My love for you is endless
All year round, Forever,
Beyond time, Endless

So why trust?
The lies unfold
Crisp and new,
So tell me why
I trusted you.
Your days of fun
Are long since gone,
So get your things
Off my front lawn.
You broke my heart
Not once, but twice,
So let's not make this
A game of thrice.
