Last ChanceI love you,
More than you know.
But your love for me,
Is only a show.
I’ll never understand,
What keeps me coming back.
Though you’re good with words,
You’re completely void of tact.
It must mean something,
That I still want you.
No matter what happens,
No matter what you do.
I think about you constantly,
I dream of you at night.
I’m ashamed of the images,
My mind conjures even in the light.
I’ve never said the words,
But you should know how I feel.
Do I actually need to say it,
For you to know it’s real?
Do you love me?
As I do you?
Are we both just too stubborn,
To say what is true?
I guess it’s time,
After all of these years.
To get on with it,
And conquer my fears.
I’m done being your ‘friend’,
The girl that you use.
If I voice my feelings,
Maybe I won’t lose.
So here goes nothing,
My chance at last.
It’s time for me to say it,
Or put you in the past.
It’s harder than I thought,
But maybe you feel it, too

I stare into those eyes once again
Think back to when I first met you
How you stood out among the others
And for one short second that day
You were the only other one in the room
I knew there was something about you
Something incredibly great and special
And now I find myself back in the moment
I have no doubts, no concerns
I am sure you are the one
The one I have been looking for
All of this time
And that’s when it happens
I say the words “I do”

Silent LoveI see through the windows of your soulSilent Love9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
And although the silence has never been broken
And the words have never been spoken
Your eyes tell me all.
I never did feel as comfortable as I did with you
I know you felt good, too.
I won't forget your eyes open wide
To the beauty of a sunset tide.
When I needed you, you were always by my side
In the dark you were my guide
The best friend I could have,
You always had me in awe.
But your eyes, they warned me that friendship is all you could give,
I never thought you wouldn't forgive.
Now I spill my sorrow in room of black
But that won't bring you back.
The silence has been broken
And the words have been spoken
There are bars of steel on windows
And your eyes are telling me nothing at all.

All of my mental wounds you healed.
Miles away, you may be
But you feel so close to me still.
I get butterflies when we speak
I’ll be even worse when we meet.
You make my heart skip several beats
Yet I’m falling for you like I tripped on the street.
And though I feel as if you deserve better
Ill be here for you and defend you whenever
Because if you agree we can find love together
And if you choose not we can stay best friends forever.

It swallows you whole,
Exceeds your control.
Apprehends your soul,
Until it has taken its toll.
It’s an overwhelming feeling.
That is made to be appealing
And you can’t help revealing,
The doubts you are concealing.
It’s an undefined dimple
And a well known jingle.
But only when you are single
Does it all seem so simple.
It is one of life’s many gifts,
That empowers and uplifts
And can lead you adrift.
Should you miss your shift.
It is impossible to describe it.
It is impossible to fight it.
Because once it is ignited
And once you have tried it.
It will take your independence.
You will become used to its presence.
You will become addicted to its essence
And include it at the end of your every sentence.
It exists even in the hearts of its haters.
It is a taste even they will savour
And although its duration wavers.
There will never be a feeling that is greater.
Everything I have said and more.
I am merely repeating what you already know.

I'd remember everything,
Perfectly like a picture.
I would choose to skip over,
All the parts I didn't like.
I'd read over and over,
Again the parts that I loved,
Not wanting to put it down.
All that is, was, or will be,
Is all equally the truth,
Without a lie or deceit.
I wish that life was a book;
I'd go back to how it was,
Remember everything good,
Never have to face future.
I would lock myself inside,
My own perfect little world,
And I'd never want to leave,
Because it's the only thing,
That I want to be true.

With your hands,
Whittle it in willow,
'Til you can no longer stand.
Carve your pain in stone,
And sit on broken rocks of life,
A place to call home,
At least for a time.
Write it in blood,
On the sand,
This empty land.
They pour through the cracks,
On your sanity,
What you lack,
So as senses shatter,
On concrete walls,
Know it matters,
If you fall.
I love you,
From pain you put me through.

Bitter tears that fall so slow
Pain inside that burns me deep
Not betrayal, but lack of trust
This is what I fear the most
How did it come to this?
Just a few days, and our bond is gone
You, I was closest to
You, I valued the most
You, I trusted, always
But you no longer trust me
You keep your pain hidden from me
Answer my questions with silence
Do you know, really understand, just how much that hurts me?
I lay awake at night, worrying about you
And you push me away
Refuse my help
But it doesn't anger me
I could never be angry at you
It just makes me... Sad
You Told MeYou Told MeYou Told Me9 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
You told me, “We only have one life to live…”
I never wanted to be ‘that guy,’ so I said, “I’d give it another try.”
But I suppose you thought that meant I had a few more chances to give…..
‘Cause nothing changed; simply more of the same straight-faced lies
Only this time, the lies became more outrageous
“You’re the most amazing person I’ve ever known,” you hesitated,
Then muttered, “I love you,” but now, deep down I knew you were no one to trust
Believe me I wanted to, but I’m not so easily persuaded
I saw through the façade; or as you put it, “Your wall,”
But you didn’t need it, not with me; at one point you really were my best friend
I would always be there for you, whenever you began to fall
I’d protect you and keep you safe; I never wanted our friendship to end
You told me, “I was the kindest guy you

and made art blush a thousand times,
and the painter's brush
and the sculptor's spurl
could never quite possess her,
even in their minds.
she retired to Colmar and Vienna
never resting, never testing
the waters of time,
although they say she adored Florence
and left more men doting
than Tuscan mothers did bear,
and Cupid wept all of Styx
when his noxious darts
fluttered not lips or hearts.
she chanced upon Zhou in Zhaoge
and left his soul in want of want,
and all his queens could not delight

and so pleasured yet, and yet untouched,
the virgin maid of Gaia's cruor
witnessed the world upon Sleipner
and slept by mortal maidens all,
whispering into their quiet dreams:
a love for each, a love in reach,
and thus every man's fall from grace
began upon yearning that changing face.

I see you standing there, wanting to be free
Wanting to be free from your own situations
I see you waiting there for me to return
Nothing more than an emotionless face
Just starring there, a glare of emptiness

Only if you can believe me that I still care about you
Only if you can believe me that try my best to cherish you
Only if you can believe me that we can make this work
Look deep, down in your heart
There is pain that you have
Pain that is unbearable but you still carry it
But it is neither a pain of misery nor a pain of sadness
It is a pain of missing, to be without
It can't be irreplaceable
All you have is hope, hope that something will change
A burden to be lifted, no let it be found by joy and richness of others around you
To be fulfill with me
So I put my hand the glass, gently yours comes up too
I feel that you are so close but yet so far away

SoulmatesShe’d been walking for months, it seemed. Fingers tightening on the pendant around her neck, she paused, turning, trying to figure out which way to go.

But not her.
Had she wandered too far? Had her soulmate perhaps died? Hadn’t yet been born? Would never be born?
She squeezed her eyes shut, holding back tears of frustration. She was all alone, and always would be. Might as well go home, go to work, forget about weddings and houses with
white picket fences and children playing in the yard.
Dust trailed after her as she hefted her knapsack. This had been stupid, taking another journey. Her fourth in the past ten years; she’d be thirty tomorrow. Why had she come this way, anyway? Always circling the earth, hoping for even the slightest

Voices become whispers, and whispers become the helpless echos of ideas shed free of a mind that is as fully functional as yours,

For the pathetic thing,
I call my life.
Cuts up and down,
Decorating my arm,
Keeping me safe,
From emotional harm.
Guarding my soul,
All through the night.
Showing that there is darkness,
Even in light.
So no matter how much I try,
To just go past,
The scars on my arms will always last.
They'll line up,
With the ones in my heart,
Until the day,
I finally fall apart.
