Can't Help Loving YouI really cannot help it,
It says so in my heart,
I really cannot help it,
Though I didn't feel so at the start.
But now we're closer and I realize,
I'm lucky to have you,
All the things you say to me,
The sweetest things you do.
You cheer me up,
When I am down,
You make me smile,
When I frown.
You may not ever realize,
My feelings deep and true,
You may not ever notice,
I can't help loving you.
I'll never stop loving you, there's no way I could.

Her cry, filled with pain.
Where is he?
Where did he go?
Didn't I see him? Just a minute ago?
He was here, and now he's gone.
And now a thought begins to dawn....
He's left her, he's moved on.
She loved him, he loved her too.
Or so she thought, and in her mind, a plan begins to brew.
She'll get back at him, oh yes!
She will, she'll make him pay.
She'll even kill.
He took her heart.
She took her life.
And now that man has lost his wife.
He didn't leave her, he hadn't moved on.
He was too late....and now she's gone.
Pitter Patter goes the rain.
And now his cry is filled with pain.

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.

alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.

That little voice inside my head

Each self-inflicted cut,

visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.

Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch

Why can't I be beautiful?

just you and me.
You knew everything about me,

We were as close, as close could get,
but then it happened, you two split.
And the my trust,
just kind of quit.
How could you?
you lied to me.
When you left,
it made me see.
So many things you'd told me,
were all just stupid lies.
When it was truly official,
I finally opened my eyes.
What happened to us?

Now I haven't got anyone,

Haven't got anyone to tell,

although we're still family.
Just not close, not anymore,
not like it used to be.

In the distance you see something glisten in the sun and run towards it. It’s a lake, filled with clear, blue, glistening water, not that deep. At the bottom you can see the white sand and little fish swimming. Around the lake are cherry, peach, and apple trees, ripe and sweet-smelling, in full bloom. You pull a peach off of one of the trees and bite into it, tasting it’s sweet juices.
You look up to see a smooth grayish-black rock with the clear blue water flowing silently over in and into the lake. How could you not have noticed it before? A waterfall. You pull off your clothes, glad you had decided to wear your bathing suit under your shorts and tee shirt.
You slide slowly into the somewhat shallow water. You feel the crisp coldness, and dive

As her eyes open, her bedroom becomes a stage.
She climbs out of bed and puts on her costume. The uniform that brands her popular.
Her hurt is covered by makeup as she throws her hair into a high ponytail.
She grabs a bagel and kisses her mother's cheek before stepping outside and walking to teh bus stop, umbrella overhead to keep her perfect image from being ruined by the rain.
The bus pulls up, somehow managing to stop before it splashes a puddle of muddy water on it's boarder.
She boards the bus, her perfect image still preserved, and takes a seat next to her "friends."
As she walks through the halls, she smiles, hoping the smile on her face looks real.
When she arrives home, she naps. After waking she hides the new bruises with her sleeve.
Her mother cooks dinner and she sits down with her family to eat and talk about her day.
After dinner she helps her father wash the dishes, freeing them from sin.
She strips, pulls her nig

The stroke of a soft cheek.
The sound of anothers heart beat.
The feeling of their hair in your hands.
The brush of fingers against their back.
The telling of secrets and stories.
The apology of a hidden lie.
The pair of lips pressed against a scar.
The sight of watching them sleep.
The softness of their voice.
The warmth of being held close
The sharing of an ice cream cone.
The quilt around two cold bodies.
The caring of their aching cough.
The confession of ones feelings.
The shakiness as they kneel.
The box with the ring inside.

Fatigue, sick-to-stomach and feelings of mortality,
She still survives,
Though she buries herself in broken lies.
She says she's fine,
She's just okay,
But deep down inside,
She's full of sorrowful pain.
She believes what she hears,
And avoids what she sees,
Feeling the sad, pity, indescribable beliefs.
She sits in a corner full of isolation and guilt,
Darkness and ache,
Counting the pills she spilled.
White and Blue,
Just one more.
Vision becoming blurry,
She's shaky and becoming worried.
Looking in a reflection,
Ribs soon distinguishable,
Bones and fright just popping out,
She screams inside and yells for help.
No one's around,
She can't hear a subtle sound.
She pleads to why she's on this earth,
Why her mother had to give birth.
She falls to the ground,
Blending into the darkness of the unspoken place,
She cries and cries,
Soon she'll be erased.

Festered with secrets, smeared with discontent.
He had pain held hostage in his begging soul
It came out of his chest in shards of absence.
He held a sharpened knife in his still hands.
Congealed blood wrapped around the glistening silver.
His sinister reflection between gashes of red.
He was living the life of a murderer.
He had immense pain pulsing within his every breath
Inflicting pain on others would be the remedy.
Slowly dying from all the killing –– the twisted ailment.
He would soon discover brutality was venom for a human.
'Just one more quell, to ease the hurt.
Let us drip rubies over this rampant wake.’
Aching body, and thinning, bated breath
–– This morbid stranger was addicted to death.

Tremors, like earthquakes, violently wrack your frame.
Breathing comes in ragged gasps, as if choked by unseen hands.
Hands that you've created yourself in the murky depth you call your mind.
You suffocate yourself, with assumptions and accusations.
Everyone looking about, whispering to one another, judging.
Your heart rate races and you become skittish and weary of all.
Paranoia roots deep within your heart, piercing like spikes of gold and rust.
And alone, oh how alone you feel in the world you've woven around you.
No one knows your struggles, not even yourself in a clear fashion.
You crave the touch of another, consolation and affection and trust.
But trust, where is the trust? Away, everyone gets pushed away.
Pushed away, or do they run at the first chance they get?
Because in the mirror all that has ever looked back at you, a monster.
It's vicious some days, pathetic others, always ugly, always wounded.
