You didn't say goodbye
How could you leave me
How could you be so cruel
You don't call
You don't write
You don't even stop by
You said you'd protect me
You said you'd be there
Now it seems like you don't care
I miss you
I love you
I'm always thinking of you
You were the only one
I could bear to be around
Now you might as well be in the ground
You're dead to me
Can't you see
How it is that you've hurt me
I wish you were here
Can't you see my tears
You didn't say good bye
And now i cry
I used to say
That i hate you
Now i would love
Just to hug you
I used to wish
You would go away
But now you've left
I wish you'd stayed
Better than father
Better than mother
But not because you're my brother
You knew how hard it was
Feeling just a little
I'm sure now
It wasn't true
The importance is
That you knew
I don't blame you
I want to get away too
I just wish
I could reach you
Just to tell you
Your sister needs you

Chapter 1: A Haunting Revelation
I never thought I would find myself in this kind of situation. If anyone told me
that I would fall in love with a monster, I would have said they were on
drugs.My name is Verena Maxwell and I'm
writing this as my last will and testament in case I don't make it out of this
situation, alive. I guess I'll start from the beginning so you could understand
how I ended up in a dark alley, hiding from a monster that was my lover.
It was March 20, the first day of spring and also the second day of L.A. Fashion
Week. I was attending a fashion show at the California Market Center. I was sitting on the front row on the left side of the runway stage. As I was watching the male
models walking down the runway, one caught my attention. He was the most
handsome man I have ever seen. He had long, shoulder length hair, beautiful
jade green eyes and creamy pale skin. He had a slim build and wasn't the
tallest of the models, but he was by far the best. For a moment, as he t
TeenagersThe adults pretended to know what teenagers doTeenagers9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And why we do what we do
Why so many of us take a knife to our arm
As though they know what we go through
Oh sure, they have a convincing argument
We were teenagers once upon a time
We know how hard life is, and how much you want to give up
How you're pressured by your peers into crime
Yes but no matter how many times we try to tell them
That was then, this is now
So many ways to be humiliated
All they have to do is decide how
Blame it on the pressure to be thin or perfect
Or the cliques
There's always that one kid who's insecure enough to make everyone feel their pain
And the one kid who always is last picked
There's always that struggle to be normal
But then the kid you think is normal, turns out to be just like you
How there's the pressure to smoke that or drink this
And how you have no idea what to do
So many books on how to raise a teenager
Everyone has a different idea on how to do it right
The books can't tell you how to protect us
GoodbyeI've got an empty bottle for every day you didn't seem to careGoodbye9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
And I've got 2 more for every day you were wishing I was there
What good is a message in a bottle that doesn't seem to float
Will I still be waiting for you when someday calls tomorrow home?
The storm lies in an empty sky and the sun lies in eclipse
And silently the world watches the calm apocalypse
Now I'm standing in the cold rain as it washes you away
Hoping I'm immortal because forever ends today
I know the worst is yet to come, and I know I'll have to fight
I know sometimes it's just time to say a long goodbye
But it's high time I found another way, it's high time I found somebody new
Cause you weren't worth the good times, and the bad times weren't worth you
When someday calls tomorrow home will you still be crying alone?
Will you scream for me or will you even know I'm gone?
Not that it matters now cause nothing can make me stay
I refuse to tie myself to lost love's corpse as it decays to pain
I hate the love you gav

Gun pointed at a child's head,
razor blades too close to the neck.
"Become a man" - he said.
"I don't want to. I'd rather be dead!"
I'm not a soldier, I'm a child.
I live in the city, I'm not wild.
I go to school, I'm civilised.
I read books, I love chimes.
You are a slave of your mind -
potential enemy, compassion blind.
If you cut yourself, you won't bleed -
you've got no blood, you soul-sick...
But I'm normal, I hate guns.
I respect my parents, I can't fight.
I love Frank Sinatra, James Blunt and The Who,
I hate pop-corn, big cars and kung-fu.
You are dead, because you fear,
because you love without compassion,
because you listen, but you don't hear,
because you watch, but you don't see.

Still wondering why you're gone
Everything makes no sense
But nothing ever does
Always missing someone
Just once in my life...
Can happiness come?
Only wanting to be happy
But it never happens
Life's too fuck up
Something tragic always happens
Nothing ever stays good,
Never stay gold...
It's always tainted...
With evil and hatred
Love runs to the shadows
Hides until the sun comes out
But this is the city of Night,
Day will never come
It's always dark,
Raining and cold
So love hides
Right along with happiness
Cuddled up trying to stay warm
But soon they freeze to death
There will never be love...
No happiness in this city
Alone we live
Alone we die
No purpose to this life
Might as well let go
We never win
We never lose
So why do we keep fighting?
There's nothing we can do
We're just trying
Trying to bring back the love
Trying to find the happiness
But we'll never find it
In this city of Night
We lost our only light
The one who too

TeenagersWhat is wrong with me? What in hell is wrong with me? Ive been crooning and caressing the same agony for the past two weeks--not shedding a tear, not opening the floodgate, not showing what kind of disaster I really am.Teenagers9 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
The tornado has already swept through, but Im still retrieving my belongings and gathering myself back together. My keepsakes have been scattered and broken, destroyed beyond repair, and what have I to show for it? There is nothing but myself, a handful of poems, and a few sketches and collages that have since been turned to ash. I am nothing to look upon.
I havent changed from the deteriorating battlements that I have become. After many a fight and many years of being worn and torn, I have finally found my place. I am cracked. I am broken. I am destroyed. What remains of me is little less than a few pebbles of dignity, or rather clods being trampled by the reckless traveller. I have found my place as a part of the ground; I have been therefore exalted. It is too much o

It hurts even more when your heart's breaking and u can't cry,
One thing that haunts me every day and every night is your name,
I'd say I'm happy for you, but you'd know it's all a lie.
I told myself I would never come in between you and your girl,
I know your happy with her, I can see it in your eyes, I can hear it in your voice,
My heart breaks every time you say that she's your girl,
I wanted to be your girl but I guess I was never your first choice.
Looking at you, looking at her, I wondered if I could've made you happy,
Your smile, your laughter, your face and your voice is burned in my head,
But then again I don't think I could've ever made you happy,
Sometimes thinking about you and her makes me want to die instead.
I promised myself that I will continue loving you no matter what,
I also promised myself that I will never jeopardize your happiness,
I cannot lie but my love for you will never part,
I promise you I will
Final GoodbyeFinal Goodbye9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Going down the road of life
Imagining it without you
Thought you'd be by my side
Walking together just us two
We found our way together
Through the mazes we walked
You wiped away my tears
So we laughed and we talked
Wishing I could freeze time
As impossible as that task
My heart is breaking but
For you to stay I won't ask
Our amazing road of life
Is slowly splitting apart
The memories I won't forget
But I do need a new start
As I try to keep this smile
Tears are coming I won't lie
But let us laugh one more time
For this final goodbye

When she hurts no one sees.
When she bleeds no one cares.
When she cries no one hears.
She's gentle not rough. She's kind not cruel. She's sweet not mean. Because of this she blends in with the crowds.
When she loves no one cares.
When she sighs no one hears.
When she smiles no one sees.
She's dark not bright. She's quiet not loud. She's sad not happy. She's EMO, she's nonexistent but constantly ridiculed.

The coloured lights pulsed and reflected off every surface, every cocktail and every bottle showcased in the shelving behind the bar. The sweaty throng of dancers flocked together, twisting their bodies to the rhythmic shapes of the music in the humid air. They worshipped the DJ, elevated on his podium. They were his disciples and we would join in their cause.
"What do you reckon?" I raised my voice to ask Chris.
"Seems alright but I want a drink." He responded and turned to the bar
"Nah, no, no, get out there and scout the war zone. I'll get the drinks."
Chris raised his blonde eyebrows once, glanced towards the bar longingly and then finally spun on his heels and trudged towards the dance floor. I swaggered up to the bench, looking around at the other people eagerly awaiting service. I ordered two beers for Chris and myself. Turning abruptly, I accidentally knocked the arm of a dark haired guy who was carrying three drinks, causin

The sweetest word is your name.
And the greatest thing is your love.
All the lonely tears that have escaped my eyes have made me who I am,
One to love you more.
All the times I felt I've found the one,
And all the times I've mourned over a bleeding heart,
All the things I've wished I've done,
And all the things I wished I hadn't helps me love you with purity and certainty.
All the times we fight feels like we're gambling our lives.
I hope we never lose.

I love you with all my faults and all my achievements.
I love you with all that I am.
I love you for who you are.
I hope in the quietest of the night
when I whisper out to you you know just what to do.
You listen to hear my voice echoing how much I love you.

Take my hand,
and we'll walk together.
Side by side,
