I could have saved you.
I know you promised me you’d save yourself,
But I should have known you were lying.
I could have protected you.
I know you said you were fine,
But I should have been able to see all the tears behind your eyes…
The lies, I should have seen straight through them,
I should have known better than to believe you,
I should have known better.
I should have known.
I should have saved you...
I'm sorry Mommy.
I shouldn't have let you save yourself.

That I've taken were meaningful at all
I'm not sure if my conscience helps me anymore
Maybe faith is guiding me through this storm

To this broken dove
Show her happiness
tell her she is loved
Will someone please just help her
Lend her a gentle hand
Raise her in a way
That she can understand
Will someone please just notice
She's broken her small heart
And slowly, every second
her worlds falling apart
She pleads for your forgiveness
She begs you for your love
Please will someone notice
This hollow, dying dove...

But maybe I need you to listen
Maybe the cuts get deeper each time
Maybe too much blood comes out
Maybe you'll try and stop me
But maybe I won't listen
Maybe I want to tell someone
Maybe I need to unload all of my problems
Maybe you're the only one who can help
But maybe I don't want to bother you with my troubles

I Found You BrokenI found you broken,I Found You Broken2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crumbled, laying upon the steps of life.
I wanted nothing more than to help you back up.
You had fallen from so high so long before.
I'd give my soul to carry you back up.
But no matter how hard I try,
I can't budge or lift you up till you decide,
To stand by yourself,
And when you do, I swear I'll be back right here.
But do you mind,
Just sit and wait with you a while?
While we both have the time.

For you to come back to me
I feel like you've forgotten
Like you no longer see
You once told me you're my friend,
And yes, I trusted you,
But was it just a lie?
Was is never true?
I sit here all alone,
Waiting for your return,
And each second you ignore me,
My heart begins to burn.
I'm afraid that I have lost you,
I'm afraid you left me here,
I'm afraid you now hate me,
You left me here in fear.
I try to find comfort,
From the things you once said,
All your kind words,
Spinning in my head.
I smile at that thought,
And I hold it tight,
I will not let go,
Until you return one night.
So please come back my friend,
I need you here with me.
Please open your eyes,
Please begin to see....

His words are swords

In a sea of cruelty and despair.
"Please don't hurt me," you cry
Your last words as poison

His words echoing through

The moon stood there, hidden by sweet lullabies.
But mommy was crying, her day had been hard
The tears in her eyes twinkled just like the stars.
Her face wasn't happy like it should have been
And though she was saddened, she forcefully grinned.
I wanted to see Mommy smile through it all...
I painted a picture on her bedroom walls.
I told her to look, just to come in and see
But Mommy was angry... she wasn't happy.
She threw me down hard on the cold wooden floor
Then picked me up, slamming my head on the door.
She yelled and she screamed, then she hit me once more
She slapped me till I couldn't see anymore.
My heart then stopped beating, my laugh went unheard
Then Mommy got up without saying a word.
She looked at the walls splattered with my young blood
Then fell to the ground in her tears with a thud.
She looked at my face, then she looked all around
Then wrote on the walls with the first thing she found.
Then, after she finished, she wanted self h

Godly Relationships 16: Lasting RelationshipsIf you're trying to build a relationship based only on physical attraction, you'll be disappointed. Lasting relationships aren't built upon lust, they're built upon love. Real love.Godly Relationships 16: Lasting Relationships2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
How do you define love? Hopefully, you understand that it's something more than physical attraction. Genuine love is patient, understanding, consistent, and considerate. Genuine love doesn't just sit around and do nothing; it get translated into acts of kindness-large and small.
Love is always a choice. Sometimes we may "fall in love," but it takes work to stay there. Sometimes we may be "swept off our feet," but the "sweeping" is only temporary. Sooner or later, if love is to endure, one most plant one's feet firmly on the ground. The decision to love another person for a lifetime is much more than simple process of "falling in" or "being swept up." It requires "reaching out," "holding firm," and "lifting up." Love becomes a decision to honor and care for the other person.
Even in agony i still love you....My heart has died tonightEven in agony i still love you....2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My eyes have been dried out
And still with all this agony
You’re all I think about
Once again you’ve hurt me
Watch as I beg you to return
Yet you ignore my pleads
You stand there and let me burn
You broke my heart to pieces
You burned my hope in life
Should I even forgive you?
Or should I get my knife?
You’re all I’ve ever wanted
You’re the reason I’m still here!
Why do you keep on hurting me?
Why watch me shed a tear!?
I thought you were my friend?
I thought we could be more….
Yet you keep on hurting me
Right down to the very core….
In the past few months
You’ve completely changed
Your entire life
Has been rearranged
And during the rearranging
You’ve thrown out your memory
You’ve thrown out your life
And you have thrown out me
You don’t need me anymore
And although it hurts my heart
I knew this day was coming
When we would grow apart
So even if you hate me
Even if you watch me fall
Why I DiedCan I tell you how I died?Why I Died2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Why it rhymes with suicide.
Not because, I fell ill.
Not because, I swallowed pills.
Soon you'll see why I lie still.
Not because, I have drowned.
Not because of, Russian Roulette's
Deaf words of mine,
preach no sound.
Not because, the fault of life
Not because, the sharpened knife.
Real reason, why, tears went dry.
Not because, I jumped to fall.
Not because, this body I mauled.
The more I remember,
the harder too recall.
The true answer is i'm,
But to me,
the meaning of suicide:

smooth tongue on my neck
lips in constant movement
but much is left unsaid
we simply make no sense
and yet here you are
i so want to believe
but doubts weigh down my heart
how could this still feel right
how are you so sure
strong walls are crumbling down
no longer insecure
my pulse is still unsteady
but my thoughts all dissolve
now fully consumed by you
all control is now lost

For I was just a native lad who fell into the teeth of beasts.
Damaged as I am, the pale moon raises the tide of my wane heart,
And leads me to you, my dear, the one I love and will never part.
The night's shadow leaves a curse upon my hampered skin,
I can come from without, but can never leave from within.
Shivering girl, don't wait for me, I am with you, don't you see?
Time hues your wishful face, and worrisome lines find their place.
Night's weary arm embraces the sky like a mother does her crying child,
Whence sorrow casts its shadow and happiness is awaiting the while.
Sets the moon now, for the sun's lofty throne is to be filled,
And you, my love, are given word that I, your sweet, am killed.

As I slide the knife across my tongue
The poison resting in my lungs
Fighting till the war's been won
But you're right, this is all done for fun.
The rope around my neck as I pull it tight
The struggles I face as I die to fight
And slowly, I fade off into a dark night...
Goodbye, smiles, goodbye, light...
Dying, breaking, losing sight
Of all that's proper, all that's bright
With all my strength and all my might..
I mean, I do this for attention.. right?

press on my temples and watch
bronze turn to milk beneath your
wait until morning and ask me then
to walk on stones turned belly-up
by the breeze
barefoot, so that red beehives
pattern my feet.
push gilded grapes between my lips,
let your hands fold origami
over my throat to ease me
into someplace else:
hypnotism at its finest.
