Standing by the SituationI opened my eyes,
But I missed so much that I needed to see,
I closed my mouth when I should have kept it open,
I had so much to say.
I stood still,
As every nerve in me screamed for me to move,
I ignored every instinct,
Even though they were the only things I had to follow.
I did nothing,
When there was so much I could have done,
But I stay silent still,
Because not every secret is meant to be told.
47 Floors UpI remember when we used to just sit here47 Floors Up7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Contemplating every decision we'd ever made.
I remember when we started making promises
Never knew if we'd keep them, no.
Sitting forty-seven floors up, our feet dangling,
On top of the world we were, or so we thought.
But for all the times we dreamt we understood,
We never really did.
47 floors up,
A dozen promises, we made.
A lot of quick remarks.
What it meant to break.
A dozen promises,
47 floors up made and broken.
A mile lost of young sanity,
But after all of that,
Here's my token of a life long lost.
We used to talk about everything,
Conversation after conversati
Stain Glass WindowsShe's got stain glass windows built inside of herStain Glass Windows7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But she doesn't have translucent skin.
She's got such vibrant, screaming colours,
But not the strength to let anyone in.
She's built these walls atop of such beauty,
To cast her own sacred spell,
From the outside no one gets a say in what she does,
But on the inside all she can do is listen
She's got a heart with a keyhole in the front,
But she's the only one who can find it.
She's got the doors all pulled shut,
So no can ever get in.
She's got the most glorious sensations building
Inside of her,
But lockdowns so much safer
Than letting everyone get a say.
Growing UpGrowing up I would have died for your attentionGrowing Up7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Just a glance my way and a few simple words.
I would have died just to have your affection.
To have you listen to the words you never heard.
I would have went falling off this earth
Just to be exactly how you were.
Because to me your were everything,
You were a role model and a brother.
But every role model makes mistakes
And finds the doom day to deal.
And every brother turns his face away
Leaving you with wounds that will never heal.
And it's not till you get to that place,
Where you're wearing his expressions,
Screaming his words into everyone's face
That you realize you wishe
My Favourite MistakeI faintly remember the cold of DecemberMy Favourite Mistake7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
And how it nearly broke me in two again.
I can barely recall how the leaves of the fall
Fluttered down to the ground again.
But how do you expect me to remember
What made it happen?
How do you expect me to keep bringing it all back?
If there's one memory I could forget,
If there's one chapter in this book of life
That I could leave behind me
If there was just one thing that I could take
With me into the future,
It'd be you.
You're my favorite mistake,
And I'd make you again and again.
I used to wish I had the power to
Never make the same mistake twice.
But now t

Wasted on a love of kiddie porn,
Placed in the fire to burn.
Of men, women, and children
For seventy-seven money laundering cases
That will never see a courtroom.
Found to be the arsonists themselves
As the fire consumes them,
And seventy-five go to hell.
Seventy-four average people
Driving under the influence,
Seventy-three families to mourn
Over seventy-two unneeded deaths.
Who lay awake at night,
Fighting the urge to run
From seventy abusive homes.

Strike The Match For Me?I'm on fire.Strike The Match For Me?7 years ago in Surrealism More Like This
The day is feeling hopeless
The fire's burning smokeless
I feel electric today.
The waves are going through me,
Inconsistent inside of me.
And I'm fighting to breathe the air I need.
The flames are burning senseless,
Their directions unsure.
Sparkling in inconsistencies,
That the human mind will never comprehend.
We just stop at 'it's pretty'.
And I'm dying for you to break me in two (again).
I'm breathing mindless, uncontrollably numb
And you're the only one,
Who's taken the time to notice how I feel.
So take me now
Or leave me.
Save the air or breathe it.
Who's judging now?
Who's judging now?

30 seconds till we hit the sky,
30 seconds till hearts break, and
Lovers tragically die,
30 seconds till black blood,
30 seconds till a brooding day,
30 seconds till it all falls apart,
Leaving you with nothing to say,
30 seconds before you're on the ground,
Take your time before you look around,
Breathe slowly dearest,
This box is deep,
For some one so shallow,
You've so much blood…
So now we're, sky rocketing,
Across these great blue skies,
Singing, live for love, or live to die.
A thousand thoughts spinning slowly,
In our minds,
Cause we're 30 seconds to touch down
And you're anything but fi

You said catch me,
Because youll always
Keep one foot on the ground.
You said laugh with me,

You said believe me,

If it meant lying to you.
You said believe me,
Because belief is power,
And power is belief.
You said smile on me,
I said smile on the world.
Closed DoorsPosed.Closed Doors6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Through the perfection instilled
And the wandering words
That flow with plagiarism
And forced thoughts
Of a mind long closed.
By the words that rise in the air,
Full of incompetence
And a sad succumbing feeling
To the idea that
We are nothing more than human.
For the fact that we are all too involved
In the flow of the planets
And the stars movement,
Through indecisive notions
The incompetent inspire
Us all to be of the lesser.
That some only believe
The decisions placed upon them
Till the mind becomes useless
And the thoughts fall short,
Ending in the destruction of what we know

I feel my wings have broken in your hands,
And Dear Mommy,
I feel my heart being torn apart again,
Because Dear Mommy,
With your every hurtful word, you every hateful scream,
I can feel me crumbling away; losing my every dream,
But with your every paining touch,
Your every ungracious word,
I finally feel my screams echoing; being silently heard,
But Dear Mommy,
With your every blatant lie,
Every stare from your vacant eyes,
And Dear Mommy,
Every touch from you emotion less soul,
All I see, all I can see are holes,
With your every careful explanation,
Your every unmeant apology,
I see myself slipping

But dont worry, Im counting:
Each breath you take; every reaction.
Recording it, like cheap music
To fill the masses ears with your lies.
A minute, a moment, a puzzle
Trying to decode the numbers
Passing through your minds eye;
A clock, ticking away the moments
Until youre real again.
As real as the rest of us.
But then again,
Whats real these days?
After All This is OverHave you even asked yourself my name today?After All This is Over7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Have you thought of me at all?
You say you miss me from the bottom of your heart,
But I wonder if it's really from the bottom of the bottle,
You told me it was all just fun and games,
Till you went and got yourself hurt,
And the next thing I knew I was face down in the dirt,
With your hands pressed against my back,
Your lips on my ear screaming, "one step closer to move",
Your shoulder against mine, (elbow to elbow)
So have you asked yourself if it was all your fault yet?
Have you taken responsibility for all you've done?
You broke my heart in one swift motion,
Like a blade piercing the
Good-bye, Beautiful.Did I ever tell you I had planned your death in the depth of the night?Good-bye, Beautiful.7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Did I ever tell you I had the perfect plan, the one to set you right?
Did I annoy you with my negativity or was it the positive that made you scared?
Was it the cold of the knife on your throat, or the look in my eyes?
Perhaps was it seeing me standing over you in the middle of the night,
Naughty little boy, tisk, tisk, you left your windows unlocked like always,
I will admit leaving the light on was a nice touch, after all, it lead me to you.
If you had only locked the window instead of delicately pulling it closed,
My dear friend you would never of had to know,

Hellos the codeword to
Enter the boxing ring each time.
Another round, another lie.
One last breath to breathe;
Another life to live.
I can feel the ropes against my back,
Your fists as they touch my face
Each finger sparking memories
Of how you used to touch me
Before the ring, ringing in my ears.
The mats as they break my fall
Knocking my breath from my lungs.
A rush of adrenaline, defiance,
As I say:
Sorrow Entraps Beautiful Minds[Whispered: Sorrow entraps beautiful minds tonight.]Sorrow Entraps Beautiful Minds7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Of all the things I've said,
Of all the truths I've lied,
I'd rather be crying myself to sleep,
Than seeing what I did to you tonight,
There's no blood on the walls,
No tears in the street,
But I know I've hurt you badly,
Almost more than I've ever hurt anything,
And it seems to be just my knack,
That when someone finally decides to care,
I hurt them and I hurt myself,
It's so easier to push away than to stay,
And I've been trying to tell myself,
I'm not the idiot I know I am,
And I'm making all these apologies,
Hoping that I never break them again,
And I'm begging myself t

I know that doesn't make sense.
I think last night needed,
A little less alcohol
And a little more romance.
My heads pounding
To the cell phone ring tone.
Another backseat nightmare
To call home.
But we never said,
There was a fun way to fall,
But the grounds a little harder
When your little miss know it all.
I get into the front seat
Feel like I'm leaving all this cheapness behind me.
All these bottles of tacky alcohol are
Out the windows and to the drive by.
Feel like I can breathe,
Feel like I can breathe anything.
This insane high
As all of the street signs go passing by,
I'm blown away by
IncompetentIncompetence seems to be your highpoint,Incompetent6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Yet you try to pass it off as mine.
Intellectual battles left unfinished
Because with your every answer we realize
How your intelligence has been diminished.
You thrive on bringing people down to your level,
Enjoying the utter content
That comes from the sarcasm and frustration.
Yet you can't handle your own battles,
You run and scream.
Cry on little one,
I'll find a way to still show you what I mean.
Frustration my passion bitch,
Along with writing and releasing pain.
Watch your mouth with the word inexperienced,
And you'll never have to deal with me again.

I hold your hand delicately,
With something up my sleeve.
I touch your wrist gently
My finger grazing your veins.
Like an old hint from wink murder,
But you never understand.
I smile at you; you smile back,
But your smile is pure.
It's something I'll laugh about in the future.
Our eyes meet, words silently expressed
You don't look like you're sure
Whether panic is an option or not.
So you keep our eyes locked.
Now we're face to face.
Your hands in my hair,
Both our smiles glued in place.
You're the first to speak
Not that I would have left you a second chance.
Courage is something I admire
New-Age NewspaperBlack ink sprawled across my chest.New-Age Newspaper7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Words flying from my mouth.
I speak every thought I have,
No consequence to worry about.
They say they'll strip me from my power,
"Freedom of speech no more," they shout.
But I'd go to jail for my thoughts,
If the cost came down to that.
I'll put every pen to paper,
Till they take away my ink.
Voice every opinion that comes to me,
They can't take away my ability to think.
I'll scream from every rooftop,
As they burn every magazine.
Start a new rebellion,
Free speech means everything you see.
I'll speak for the masses,
As my hands stay tied in cuffs.
No amount of force can silence me,

She had the most beautiful hair,
We wrote poems supposedly without inspiration,
I never admitted she was mine,
Her voice was always silent,
I guess to her maybe she was never there,
She was always so quiet,
For me it was a silence almost too much to bare,
She had a beautiful smile,
Although I never truly saw it shine,
Her eyes were a panicking blue,
Sparkling with everything within her,
Her binder was always open,
Her head constantly turned down,
Her lips never turned into a smile at jokes,
She used her black cloak of hair to hide her frown,
Always there on time, she was never a second l

Another pity vote redemption
To put me on top again.
I need a taste of disruption
A moment of desperation
To compensate for my lack of heart.
I won't die for your implication
Or the satisfaction of seeing you,
But I'd die for your salvation
Because in saving you,
I save myself.
I'm not looking for a sensation
Worth saving my still heart,
Not dying for the salvation
You've promised me in being apart.
I won't stop creation
As I dream myself back together.
Can't stand another day of separation
With a compact nation at it's heart.
I'm not holding onto a hope
That will bring me back to life,

Of pain and shuffling of democracy,
With words unheard in moonlight
Of a lonesome starless night,
Brought through suspicions
Of a group unlike our own.
Each eye untrained and unpracticed,
But aware and well prepared
To hunt through the light
For the darkness it hold;
To fin the controversy built
By the negative in every positive
While the charge burns within it.
Awaiting by the light of the flame
As the midnight sky ignites
In a explosion of carelessness
From untrained mind.
Closed eyes shuffled over
And with silence we shall disapprove
Of the ideas sent backwards

A constant in the middle,
Being the one wrong even when not,
I knew my place when I started,
And you could almost say that tied the knot,
I pushed away the papers I had so delicately written,
Throwing the pen across the room,
These letters meant everything,
They were the tattered tales that created my doom,

You'll notice that I'm dead,
You'll be the first one home like always,
