If I'm at the ground
There's a light which helps me to standup

It shines for me in the darkest caves

It helps me away over the pain

to tear down

it's too easy,
I'm already broken,

what would that do?
nothing? that's what
it would push
me over, shatter me
it's too easy
to break me apart,
it seems as if
it would be so hard
but it's been done
it's so easy to break
yet so hard to fix.

break a person
to tears, to the limit,
so why should I
be any different?
yes, it seems hard,
but it's easy
grab your taunts
throw them my way,
shatter my dreams,
and I'll bleed,
it seems so hard
but really to break
a person down,
is all too easy...

I try to return what you gave me.
To sacrifice myself in your honor,
To struggle through the smoke so you can rest,
To stagger across the embers and see you on the other side,
To take the heat and shield you from the sparks,
To smolder in eternal pain so you won't have to,
To have your wildfire blazing in my eyes.
But I'm a weak, fragile flame
And I'm burning out.

"I hate hospitals."
"They're always trying to hide."
"What do you mean by 'hide'?"
"You smell that?"
"Yea. Smells clean."

"Would you rather it smell like germs and corpses?"
"No. But that's not the point."
"What is your point?"

who gave up the dream
I salute you
Don't worry, I understand
You see; I did it as well
So here's to the accountant,
who wanted to play basketball
An ode to the CEO,
who is really a dancer
Here's to the farmer,
who should have been on Broadway
Here's to you
Because I know
That when you gave it up
When you surrendered
You had your fingers
crossed behind your back

Just me. Not you or we.
Myself and me. Do you not see?
Who else would I ever be?
I could be you.
Yes, you. With quite a view.
Me and you. With one lie or two.
But then I would not be true.
Not true like me.
Yes, me. Now do you see?
You plus me. That makes us we.
No one should we rather be.
Because if I'm not me
and you're not you
what would we be
when they ask us "who?".
Tomorrow Is Another DayHow can I dreamTomorrow Is Another Day2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I'm hurt?
How can I smile
When I'm dirt?
How can I hope
When I'm forgotten?
How can I be
When I'm nothing?
I don't know how
But there are some things
That you just have to do
If not for yourself
Then for someone close
I don't know if these words
Will impact you, or set an impression
But take this advice
From an old cutter
It gets better, even if your life has melted like butter
You're not forgotten
You're always in someone's mind
You're not dirt
Cause to someone you shine
There is still hope for you
Even if your dream is broken
I noticed that
When the girl I loved, came even closer
Don't hurt yourself today
Cause you never know

But you used to like listening to him, and you used to like talking back and conversing. John used to make you feel like a real friend, and not just his knight. One time, when you were both around fifteen, John got in trouble for pulling a prank on his father while the king was in a very important meeting. While he was getting a scold talking to, one of the generals in the meeting called him some horrible name under his breath that only you heard and you had snapped at him to shut his fucking mouth.
You got in trouble with the head knights for speaking out of turn and had to get five lashes. You didn’t talk to John for two days after that. You didn’t meet his eyes when you followed him into areas where the two of you weren’t alone. Your lash wounds had been hurting and you didn’t want more.
After those two silent days, John snuck into your sleeping area of the castle during the night. When you closed the do

You and Dave don’t reach another town for a while, which means you both have to sleep outside for several days. You don’t want him to rag on you for not being used to this, but you can’t help it. You feel like bugs are on you and you feel like some large animal is going to come and maul you.
Dave looks so calm though. There’s a fire crackling between you two, one that he started in less than five minutes with ease, and he’s sitting on a turned log. His legs are spread and he’s leaning forward with his elbows on his knees. The light of the fire flickers on his pale face, showing the freckles that spread lightly under his eyes and across his nose. His red eyes look so much more vibrant with the rays of the flames dancing on them.
Neither of you have spoken since the inn. You don’t know what to say. Should you apologize? Would explaining yourself just make it worse? You don’t like it when he’s

let me see the light!
i search so hard that it hides from me
but my eyes, heart and soul yearn
for you to let me see the light
perhaps staying still is not darkness
but safety for these times
maybe it would kill me
if i truly saw the light
if you were to allow any wish
i would not say to see the light
i would ask to live there
Garden of RealityGarden of Reality2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Painted wings bring eternal hours
Accompanied by withering flowers
Among a garden stands but one
A rose of glass, its peace undone
Longs for a garden free of sin
Injustice gone, all caged within
The bars of hell shutting cold
Hiding corruption once foretold
Please, oh please, I beg of thee
Turn my dreams to reality
Withering none the flowers of glass
Carving the stars, an evermore path
The purest tales written in sand
Lasting hours , times so grand
The rose it blooms, it senses are free
It sways away, refusing to see
Illusions deceiving, hidden in clad
Delusions thriving, driving it mad
Please, oh please, I ask of thee
What has become of my reality?
Golden grief, my wish in a well
All morale has dragged me to hell
Flowers watered, drowning in vice
Festering by the Devil's entice
Echoing crows pick at the thorns
Weak are they, the rose it mourns
For petals descend only to cry
And the garden weeps, all awry
The rose of glass, its drops of dew
They shed, they fall, for the true

Where is the unafraid, independent girl
Who did it very good on her own?
She's gazing in the mirror
Wondering if this feeling's real.
When she first saw him
Her world turned around,
She tried to fight it
But didn't know how.
His tender kiss,
His charming smile
Turned this girl
Into a fragile flower.

RestlessThoughts on endless repeat,Restless2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The orchestra self-composes
in its sleep, and in itself
finds too much to think.
Ideas are repeated,
Rehashed and rediscovered
so that the words themselves
might speak, and find they too
have breath within them,
to somehow be unique,
And like the rest of us
fall short and yet succeed.
They tumble from my mind
like rain onto my feet,
and I scramble to write them down,
Before I too fall from my waking mind,
and into sleep

You don’t remember who took care of you when you were an infant, but you were on the streets by five. For a tiny human, you kicked ass, and you were street smart. You knew how to get into people’s minds, how to manipulate, how to put your fists up and pick the right fights. It’s how you stayed alive. You suppose those virtues were noticed when an older man with sunset eyes saw you sitting by a fence post, chewing at the remains of an apple you had stolen.
He knelt before you, and your eyes immediately widened. You were five, of course you were a little scared. Tons of the people in the village have beaten you, not only for stealing, but because they thought you were some demonic offspring because of your eyes. Hell, some guy tried to do an exorcism on you once.
The man in front of you was important though. Someone tall and stron

But anyways, I moved here for my dad's job. He is the owner of a toy company so he had to be transferred to Whitehorse.

But of course this came with a price, leaving her home, and losing her family. She could never go back home. But now where could she go? As she took one last walk down the main street of King Charles Harbour, the thought struck her like a bolt of lightning. She had orders to leave Neverland, but where would she go? For such a beautiful summer evening, she sure felt cold and lonely. Would it be better to go back to Ireland, or would it be worth trying to stay here. Everyone warmed up to Harper and her crew over the years. Everyone except James.
She kept her eyes out over the horizon, at the end of the street she saw the pier and of course, the open ocean. The wind breathed a sigh through

There wasn’t enough space in your room for your piano, so you’ve settled your keyboard into it. Dave switched to a twin sized bed so that his turntables actually fit in his room. You don’t care what he does with his room anyway, he just makes a mess of it, and that’s not your responsibility.
“As long as it doesn’t stink up the place,” was your compromise.
Dave moved up to Washington the day he turned eighteen. He had been tossed around in foster care all his life, having been split up from his twin brother when twelve, and was not happy with the fake families (as he called them). He was packed and ready to go at midnight when he became a legal adult.
He stayed with you and your father for two weeks, looking for jobs and places to live. He was too humble to ask for money, but your
