Painfull MemoriesShe dances in and out on waves of broken glass,
A memory of better times, a perfection that couldn't last,
I can reach out and touch her if I don't mind the pain,
But the cuts and scars means nothing's the same,
Still I cling like an addict addicted to the thought,
Of a woman who so long ago I should have forgot.
I offer myself a short distraction,
Some sort of break in the breaking reaction,
But when the music dies down and the streets get cold,
I run through conversations and things I was told,
Like that three word phrase that we used to use,
How quickly the feeling of love turned to "I hate you"s.

Fuels my fire of burning regrets
It started out so sweet and kind
Now I feel I'm completely blind
I let another woman cross the line
My heart is turning to sublime
Falling under the weight of hurt
My next action was very curt
I went into the kitchen thinking about our life
My next action was picking up that knife
Walking out into the middle of the night
Crying throughout the entire fight
The fight within me I found was there
And was caught completely unaware
Rage inhabiting the corners of my mind
Shame and humility is all you will find
Again I stepped into our quiet room
Just to find her and you
Again on the balcony and another walk I went
All the morning my time was spent
All throughout the night I said I was okay
But I knew inside I was breaking away
The next day we spent happy and gay
Unfortunately it didn't end that way
I was going to shower without even thinking
Then I saw it in your eyes; your heart was sinking
You asked how the scratches on my

Choking dark shadow
Burning away the blackness
Overwhelming heavy fog
Struggling against oblivion
Crushing all hope
A righteous eternal fire
A chorus of angels
Shrieking of spiked demons
Crumbling under the night
Extinguishing rain falls
No light seen
Somewhere it shines though
In the deepest

Probably better off gone.
An unreliable machine,
That always needed oil.
Something to clean up,
A spilt glass of milk.
Trash to get rid of,
A piece of litter.
A simple keystroke,
Wiping away what was once there.
A flick of the switch,
Deleting the useless file.
Perhaps at one point it meant something.
A passed memory.
Perhaps it doesn't matter,
An unnoticed action.
A unbreakable code,
Misunderstood by choice.
An ignored tomb,
That no one will ever visit.

Radiate timeless eternity

I'm so tired of loving,
I'm so tired of dying
inside my soul each day.
I'm so tired of hoping,
I'm so tired of dreaming,
I'm so tired of imagining.
It will never be real anyway.
I'm so tired of falling,
I'm so tired of failing,
I'm so tired of walking
when love is so far away.
I'm so tired of wishing,
I'm so tired of searching,
I'm so tired of remembering
those beautiful things you used to say.
I'm so tired of bleeding,
I'm so tired of yearning,
I'm so tired of living
in a world that's grey.
But most of all I'm tired,
of being the person I am,
I'm tired of my mistakes,
I'm tired of my broken heart.
I'm just so tired of being me.

And you bring on the heat.

But you’re quick to drag me to the devil’s land.

Through blurry vision
With endless possibilities
Where anything can happen
Countless feelings washing over
Regret, desire, curiousity
Wishing they'll come
Yet praying they won't
Night after night

What is it tonight?
Wondering what'll be?
Lust, terror, magical, comedy?

Pouring down sheets of rain
A crow looking for a rest.
Lone streetlamp piercing the gry
Orange glinting of the tears
Wait... Tears or rain...?
Bright and magical glow
Setting fire to the falling rain
The crow perches on the light.
Dark and light together as one
Crow of Death and beacon of Hope
Is it a symbol...?
I stand here soaked and wishing
I could forever talk to the rain
And listen to this silent crow.
The illusion of heavenThe illusion of heaven2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I lie still,
And just for a moment heaven reaches out to me.
Kissing my arms, holding my face,
Sending a gentle breeze washing over me like a soft embrace.
Finger tips down my side,
Brushing lightly over my skin,
As if I am glass about to cave in.
A million tiny snowflakes land around us,
Like frozen tears of joy.
Quiet songs in my ears.
Words to beautiful for me to comprehend,
The whispers of an angel,
Like sunshine in my ears.
But as quickly as heaven came, it went.
Taking with it the air in my lungs
And the beat of my heart,
Leaving me cold and detached,
Staring at the world but unable to get back.
It dances in the shadows,
It is in all the beautiful things I see,
But in the deepest of nights it comes back to me
And hits me like a tidal wave in my empty space.
It is the tears on my face,
It is this gaping hole no one can replace.
It haunts me from time to time,
Tugging at the corners of my mind,
Bringing the illusion of heaven back to me.

Thunder claps over head.
Lightning lights up the dark sky.
I sit in my room,
watching the rain fall down,
and the lightning decorate the clouds.
The house is still and quiet.
Nothing is moving.
The thunder crashes and breaks the silence.
The lighting illuminates the house.
I stare out my window from my bed,
and listen to the rain hit the house.
A song sung by Mother Nature for a thousand years.
It lulls all things in the world to sleep.
I lie back on my bed,
close my eyes,
and let Mother Nature sing me to sleep.

Through the matted haze
A silhouette, man or monster?
Are you there?
A trick of blackened mind?
You’d think my intended liberation cruelly selfish.
You’d ask -
What of the children? What of you? What of us?
These come as gifts to cling to.
I try to tell you.
I walk on the edge of an abyss.
But I am ignorant of it.
I am a fool to feel safe. A fool, unaware.
I walk for a while, and everything is okay.
There’s a path I follow, it leads straight, it seems wide.
The abyss always looms and I have to notice it.
It’s always waiting now. Always in the corner of my mind.
I trick myself sometimes into thinking it’s not there.
I distract myself along the path.
But one little stumble, the smallest of stones, and I am falling into it.
To start with I can catch myself, and drag myself back up.
Always I fall a little further.
Until one day I fall in completely.
I hit the depths and my body shatters.
The pain renders me incapable.

And in that single moment I know
My heart will be forever prisoner
You will never let me go
Your gaze is like Medusa's:
Can turn mere mortal to stone
Except I have come here willingly
The full dangers I had known
Your eyes are like fire
Burning chestnut in the gloom
Scorching straight into my withered soul
My hope and spirit anew
Your smile is dazzling
Bright like exploding stars
It blinds me with its light and truth
Reaching deeply from afar
Your body is that of Adonis
Carved by angels hands
Yet wrought from stone it's full of life
A perfectly made man
Your voice is soft like velvet
Gentle, calm and smooth
Your words said with a graceful ease
And carefully thought through
Your personality, it seems,
Was built to gel with mine
We compliment like yin and yang -
Our true selves bare to shine
We share so many interests,
Yet are lives are so apart
But wherever you may go in life
You will never truly depart
Although you keep me prisoner
With all the things you
