You Are Me, But I Use to be YouYou take away lives
You pillage homes
You destroy beauty
For it is a ritual.
For it is a traditional game.
You come home
Beaten and tattered
Shirt bloodstained and dignity shattered.
You look in the mirror, your past asks you,
"What do you see?"
"I don't know anymore."
Your past stares intensely in your eyes in the mirror.
"It never had to be this way. You had someone who loved you dearly. You had people who adored you. You had a family who cared for you."
You look up in the mirror with rage.
"What do you know about care? What do you know about love? Everyone fears me. Even You fear me..."
"I never feared you. I was sad because you pushed me away. I died and never came back."
You bunch your hand into a fist and smash the mirror and watches as it shatters to a million pieces and the splinters jab into your flesh.
You collapse to the ground.
"You are me. But I use to be you."

another bird calls,
the bird no longer sings,
merely cries for his lost wings,
he sees the others soar,
he feels so poor,
he remembers the days,
long before the cage,
long before the gaze,
long before he had to stay,
he misses the sky, now he wants to die,
through the cage,
he gathers his rage,
gathers his strength,
it seems a short length,
the door opened he jumped,
what was left of his wings he pumped,
but with no wind he fell,
fell to the ground,
fell without a sound,
not free to fly,
but free to die,
free from his cold metal hell.
Telltale LightsBleeding the memory of a love lost to the rain, an abyssmal terror reaching me wherever i go. Even though i live and breathe, the city lights fade in and out of view as my world begins to fade. Every color draining, i cant even think anymore. There is nothing to grasp, no telltale lights hovering in that forgotten night.Telltale Lights9 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
That promise we made not long ago... at what point did it become a curse? At what point did those dreams of a future that far surpassed the unforgiving streets, the hunger in our stomachs, the dirt on our clothes, when did it all fade? As we stared at the stars in the sky, your voice calm, yet hesitant in my ear, we made secret wishes. Ones we fooled ourselves into believing. We smiled in the moonlight, fighting back our tears and anxiety.
Was our hope misplaced? Did those dreams fade? How far have we fallen... that those words of irreplaceable love became venomous hate, pouring from our wounded souls? How can i possibly live like this, unable to even look at you? Wher

Put the blade down
Don't you think it's time for something new?
A new attitude, a new way of dealing with
The things they put you through
A new way to survive
A new way to pull you through
You may not see it now
But if you hold on
It always gets better somehow
So throw your self-destructive tool
Away and join the fight
We'll show those in pain
That there's always a light
And I know you think that no one's there
And I know you think that no one cares
But the things they said, they're not true
They're only trying to hurt you
If you go through with this
It'll only get worse
So just throw it away
So just throw the guilt away
All the anger, all the pain
All the fear and all the shame
Just throw it all away
On the edge
There's a girl stood looking down
And she's so far up
She can see the whole town
Little did she know
The very next day
They'd take back all the things they say
But now she'll never find out
Wait it out
Just wait and see
It will get better for b
