Let me feel the warmth of your breath on my neck.
Hold me close,
Let me hear the beat of your heart, where I lay my head.
Hold me tight,
Let me see that you won't ever let go.
Hold me gently,
Let me smell that familiar fragrance.
Hold me forever,
Let me taste the love I knew before.
Don't ever let go.

The night is peace, the night is quiet.
The trees are swaying, in rhythm with the wind,
Crushing within your soul, the restless riot.
Darkness is closing in around you.
The Darkness in your soul has found you.
Thump. Your heart is beating fast.
Stealing into your fragile mind,
Creeping into your helpless heart.
So silent, so stealthy.
Slowly taking over your life.
Softly, Silently, Quietly.
Stealing into you.
Thump. Thump. Thump.
Unconscious cries emit from your soul.
Helpless against the faceless fears.
The approaching Darkness swallows you whole.

Our minds, our hearts, our lives
Are shriveling into a pathetic existence,
Falling away, dying off.
Girls and girls, boys and boys,
Drugs and drinks, all this inanity
It's poisoning us, poisoning our hearts,
Poisoning our lives, and our love.
These things we're addicted to,
They hurt us, we love it.
They kill us, we beg for more.
This filthy place we call our home- is dying.
We are dying. Every moment we accept this,
We lie. We cheat. We drink, and we steal.
Like nothing is real, like this is it.
Hurting mothers, destroying our brothers, this is our life.
This is insanity.

Life of a "Goth"…?
You see me in the corner, huddled in a ball,
Me and all my friends loiter at the mall.
I pretend to like knives and drag them on my skin,
Just enough to make a drop of blood come from within.
Only a light scar, but dark enough to see,
To show off just how suicidal I can be.
I draw stars inside circles on my hand,
I don't know what it means, but it's the symbol of my band.
In my metal group, I play my bass,
And I use black eyeliner to draw three sixes on my face.
I can't gauge my ear, so my earring isn't real,
I'm so depressed; no one knows how I feel.
I write pathetic poems about how I hate my family,
I can't do what I want and they'll never understand me.
I buy my clothes from Hot Topic because it's cool,
Even though I have friends, I choose to sit by myself in school.
The other black-haired kids call me a poser and a mistake,
But they're not like me because I'm Goth, and they're the ones who are Fake.

In her eyes lie un-shed tears.
In her eyes lie the broken wings,
The pain she knew would come by.
On her tongue lies so many words,
On her lips lie so many thoughts.
On her mind there are things unheard,
In her heart, the pain it brought.
She hates herself, she tries not to,
But she can't help it, she just does.
She wishes they had never met,
That their hearts had never touched.
But they did, and they have,
And still in her heart,
She's so glad for that,
But not glad to depart.....

To accessorize with her own

But as I settled as ash...

Lasso it from the Pacific sunset
and throw it back up into our skyline.
Embrace its beauty
Cause this may not last long.
I've been praying for days on end now.
Let the light come and peek through your window.
Let it warm your face and greet you

Cause if I was there thats what I'd be whispering across the pillowcase.
And smirking in complete adoration

More amazing than you wrapped around me.
I look so helpless in your arms.
We'll fall into an even deeper sleep
and drown in a cotton bliss.

Ash Wednesday, and everything is a mess.
People pillage the streets like pigeons in the street faire ahead, and I walk closer with my eyes darting curiously from cluster to cluster.
My senses are bursting like firecrackers. The scents of the street burn in my nose so pleasantly; my taste buds were so vacant and craving. I can almost taste the colors that shatter so exquisitely across the palate of cement-there are sunburst yellows everywhere I look. Oranges and reds, too. I wish you could have seen it.
I was never one for lemonade, but it is everywhere, and it looks divine. Lemons and sugar-more sunburst yellows. Citrus pinwheels dancing around in big vats of pungent juices. The thought alone makes me pucker.
Subconsciously I'm walking to the beat of drums in the distance.

It plays to the beat of our heart.
Gliding gracefully over us,
Mixing with the sound of our whispers.

Swirling up and down around us,

Playing for us, just for us.
There's a voice high above us,
As we hold each other tight.
Graceful, gentle, peaceful.
Singing our Love to us, as we lay together silently, dreaming.

See you in my next life,
like the last cold beer in the fridge.
Guitar solos and poinsettias,
slipping off the edge,
of the three-legged card table
with the coffee stains
and cigarette burns
with morals lost,
and a few unwanted lessons learned.
Pop culture casualty,
revolver to the head.
Presumed aloof at 10:07,
bleeding lyrics on the bed.
Fast forward thirty years ago,
with the words pasted to your tongue,
like sex on a Sunday morning,
and black tar embracing your lung.
Walking on shards of glass,
with rosary in hand,
symbolism of abstract thinking,
just to find out it was planned.

For causing pain is the best thing I do
I should have left when love came around
But I found it's rarity too profound
I thought I could love and leave things be
But I can't so here's my plea
I'm sorry I let some feelings get in the way
But I fell in love so what else can I say
I wish I could turn back the hands of time
So I could stop this ongoing crime
Now I'm left wishing for a fresh start
Because it hurts to have a broken heart
Love screws up how and what you think
And causes mood swings as often as you blink
I won't allow myself to sit here and wait
For true love to turn to hate
There's so many reasons that can be given
For me wanting to be forgiven
