Tragedy to TriumphWith ice in her veins
And a heart as dark as a moonless night
Her soul bound by chains
Her mind wants to give up this eternal fight
She's lost and alone
In a world she doesn't belong
Suffering is all she's ever known
She's lost her will to be strong
She sees through the eyes of tragedy
And hears only what her mind wants to say
She feels nothing but apathy
Even in her dreams she's gone astray
This was me
But a year ago
I finally know
I've learned through trials and woe
That this life is for living
To embrace it and grow
Through letting go and forgiving
Everyday is a new start
I've got nothing to lose
If I listen to my heart
I can change my views
The right path isn't always smooth sailing
But it's worth it in the end
There's no possibility of failing
As long as you attend
DreamsI am waiting for you every day, dreaming of the sweetest smileDreams3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And while the day slowly ticks away in thought I am with you for a while
People feel our love isn't real, since I haven't touched you yet
But love is not measured in the times we meet, but in trust instead
So what if we are miles apart, as crazy as it seems
We have met each other many times in one another's dreams
And this might someday come to pass, I know the risks of Cupid's games
It's not about tomorrow dear, because no matter what the future holds at least we have today
Soon I'll hold you in my arms we'll lie in meadows green
I promise you that we will soon if only in our dreams

You see, she is
the one that always comes too late.

the one that read all the school books for fun.
the one that constantly has her head in the clouds.

the one that never runs out of enthusiasm.
the one that will always stick by her friends.
the one that skips school to support a friend.
the one that loves to be random.
the one that loves to confuse her friends by being random.
the one that can never decide what to wear.
the one that is obsessed

I'll stand in the dark with the little crease of light, letting me see you.
I'll make little voices to catch your attention, but try to make it look like I'm not seeking it.
Like I always do.
And it'll take you a while but suddenly you'll notice it repeating every few minutes, seconds.
Like you always do.
And then you'll ask me if something's wrong, but I'll deny it.
Like I always do.
And after another while passes and the question's been brewing up inside you, but you're not quite sure how to ask it, you will.
And I'll answer honestly.
Like I always do.
I'll quietly step out of the closet, probably not surprising you much.
I stepped out on the wrong foot though.
And you'll cry.
Like you always do.

We AreThe mirror reflection reveals a girl too fatWe Are1 year ago in Scraps More Like This
And no amount of starving or purging can change that
Yet tonight no effort to be "pretty" will happen
Because tonight she sees "beautiful" in that reflection
Across the room is a boy who never speaks
The crazy one who hangs out with freaks
Tonight, however, he'll be one of us
We'll all be psychos so he can be off focus
In the bathroom is the girl with the reputation
Judged and ridiculed, she lives in isolation
Take her hand instead of walking by
Tell her tonight it's ok to cry
To the boy who drinks in silence every night
Drowning away the pain so reality doesn't bite
Throw away that bottle, pull him to his feet
We'll claim victorious over those memories instead of defeat
For the ones standing on the corner, passing it around
The high captivating their lungs and blood bound
Throw away the needles, cigs, and powder
Let's live one last night being sober
This is for the kid covered in bruises and mutilated skin
Those scars of theirs weaves a lay
I FellI fell down into a hole of despair,I Fell2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and felt a pain that no one can bear.
Lost in the dark and stuck without a way,
I feel less pain the longer I stay.
My feelings and emotions are slowly numbing,
my hopes and my dreams are already crumbling.
I fell down and now I can't get back up,
now all I can see is a half empty cup.
Lost my strength and lost my will,
all I can do now is just stay still.
I look up to see the bright eyes,
staring at me while my soul slowly dies.
One step and another yet I still can't see the light,
another step, and I fall back into the night.
Here is a darkness I cannot stand,
my hope is holding on by the last strand.
Someone save me before I completely lose my way,
please don't leave me here for another day...

laugh through the pain,
but it's been a while,
I think I'm insane.
I can't hear my own voice.
The one that says what I want.
Now I have no choice.
You never did, it taunts.
It tells me what I should say.
It tells me who I am.
It tells me everyday.
Am I the lion or the lamb?
Am I as weak as I feel,
or as strong as I pretend?
Am I cold and hard as steel,
or just waiting for it to end?
Who am I?
Do I really want to know?
I end with a sigh.
The voice is telling me to go.

Fake WonderlandA place where you want to breathe,Fake Wonderland2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But you cannot get enough air.
A place that you want to leave,
But you can’t, you are in despair.
Freedom is something I wanted long ago.
They used to tie me up with a rope.
I am packing and now I am ready to go,
To rebuild, to change it all there is no hope.
In lies we have to swim every day,
To love we are not allowed anymore.
Anything you want you are not able to say,
They throw you in a room and lock the door.
A fake wonderland that no one can escape,
If your body is gone, your soul will stay.
The truth they can no longer shape,
They want to throw it to the sea away!
You freed me from this chain,
Now my soul can for a while rest.
I want to love you, but I am insane:
To alter this realm I try my best!
I Used To BeI used to be so optimisticI Used To Be2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I used to pray and hope and love
But I closed my eyes and lost it
And now I live in lands of frost
Growing up killed all my dreams
It made me see the World
I used to laugh and love and breathe
But now I'm caught in life so cold
I used to be so sure of living
I used to smile to myself
Unaware of the World I lived in
And unaware of strength of wealth
I'll never be what I did dream
I'll never see the world I wanted
I can't afford to still believe
In dreams that only ended haunted
