Like a purpose
Feeling of concern
Like you'll carry me
Like I would carry you
Across a sea, down a path
Feeling you exist
Like I'll do anything to be with you longer
Like you would kiss me
Like you care
Enough to help me out
Feeling you need me..
The whole time
That I exist..
The whole time
Like you care..
The whole time
Like you'll carry me..
The whole time
Like I have a purpose..
The whole time.

run in circles and hope to fall.
forget the smokes and the booze.
Im addicted to water.
When sex seems too harsh yet a relationship feels worse.
fog surrounds this place and rain kisses my face.
Somewhere theres a book with my name on it.
but I didnt write it.
I wouldnt know even if I did.
I would never remember.
I will dream until my mind stops
but your dreams are just illusions.
they all fade away once you die.
Your name was never in a book, Grace.

I'm walking on broken hearts.
Strangling the hope in my veins.
Look to the sky.
Fight like rain.
Fall into the reaper.
Why aren't you dead.
Help me up.
You suck the fear from my body.
I won't die a nobody.
Watch as I live.
Watch as I die.
Fall from the bed.
Burn the broken hearts.
Burn my path.
You contemplate my death.
Saying I'm not worth life.
At least people know my name.
Devour the shame in your heat.
Grip onto life.
You may not think of me as much.
You destroy the path i walk.
Consuming the broken hearts.
As I fall into ever growing darkness,
More than death will know I lived.

This cough, my shake,
I want what Ive lost,
My skill to write,
But this is just a lesson
To not better yourself
When what you have is secretly great.
I have seen life on mountaintops,
Behind a cigarette,
In the arms of a friend,
By the lips of a lover,
Behind a computer screen, behind this world,
In the eyes of others and out of my own.
When what we have is all we ever needed
Or behind a metaphor;
Our style is why we are loved.

It means the world to me, I hold.
Its a bubble which floats in Paradise,
Its a constant high which gives most drugs a surprise
Love is a façade of lust Ive been told,
Love is the bond of soul-mates, I hold.
Its a discovery of self in a love-life,
Its a one way trip to paradise.
Love is madness, Ive been told.
Sanity is over-rated, I hold.

Absorbing, ever - watching
born feet first upon the ground,
his lungs are low on air
and a scream is all he sounds.
He left the life of learning
to a world of smoke and roses,
when a beam of light can tip both ways
unscathed is he, the boy who chose.
But still those claws dig in
in the edges of his mind,
theres only one can see
and that's another of his kind.
He hasnt seen a mirror,
he doesnt know his name,
its through imagination
that he keeps himself insane.
I'll Remember YouRemember that time we laid beneath the sky, it was so blue that dayI'll Remember You6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
We watched the clouds take shape, laughing until our bellies hurt
Those were the good days when we lived happily and free
Now were bound by this distance spread between you and me
Remember the time I told you that I loved you and your smile said it all
And then you hugged me so tight and we stayed in bed until four oclock
In the morning you made us breakfast hoping the sun will never set
But sooner or later we all have to face the truth that no love lasts forever
Remember the time we sat gazing at the stars, wondering what the future will bring
And I told you it didnt matter as long as you were here to keep me warm
I said you shine brighter than the stars and you kissed me on the nose
I got that feeling you know the one that tingles all over from head to toe
Remember the time I used your toothbrush and you didnt even think it was gross
Then you said when the time comes to part that y

And you saved me.
From the darkest place
So deep within this world
Where my heart is breaking
I look to those who are lost,
And just like me
They refuse to let me near,
Anything that can help
Becomes infected and incurable.
Ghost of a shell of a chance
When my other half is missing
I miss you, darling.
When will you come home?

Should I just forget
You were ever alive
Ever pretended to care
Ever held my hand
As if in was going to burn you
Should I erase you from existence
Erase every feeling
That passed through my mind
Am I better off
Living with out you
Fading from my own appearance
Becoming transparent before your eyes
Believing in nothing but the disloyalty you sent me
The anguish I suffered
Into the corners of my mind
And disappear from your life
From there life
From the world

When everything dies
I wont remember
All those days
Or all those nights
I spent with her.
Or all that bullshit
I learned in school.
Will remember is
That I would go
With cheap wine
And rolled cigarettes.
With expensive peace
And original music.
With old books
And paper walls.
I would live on

Time passed quick June swiftly became July
The wind blew sweetly through the trees of green
Creating a picture perfect hot summer scene
Laying in the sun, living freely without a care
Running my fingertips through the tangles of your hair
Our bodies lying side by side twisted like a knot
Everything I want and need is everything I got
But what happens when the leaves start to change
Everything becomes different, everything becomes strange
The sun disappears and everything turns cold
Suddenly your hands not there for me to hold
All becomes numb, the earth a hard frozen core
Love comes to its end and here comes the war
All is dead; the life we once knew has hidden
The love we once knew has now become forbidden
Ill never stop missing you or that faithful smile
This love thing weve got will never go out of style
Im only asking one thing of you, remember me
A Moment Captured From The Drivers SeatA Moment Captured6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My fingers were numb by the time I got to Catherines house. I had the heater up full blast, angled towards my hands, and it was only starting to help. I pulled my shiny new SUV into the driveway that was already covered in two inches of snow. I loved having four wheel drive. Catherine was already waiting on her front doorstep, and she sprinted up as I parked my car. She held her hat on as she ran with her white scarf trailing out behind her. She yanked open the door, a big goofy grin on her face.
Hey Kitcat! were the only words that escaped my mouth before a snowball hit me square in the face. Aweee Cat, I whined. It went down my shirt! I did a little dance in my seat, pulling on my sweater trying to get the snow to come out the bottom. She did nothing but laugh at me. Hey, its not funny, I just got warm! I protested.

Thinking of you, imagining you're lying next to me,
My duvet is sliding off the edge of the bed,
It's like you're tugging it from me,
Stealing it away, holding it back,
Just like something holds me back from you.
Biting my nails nervously, watching the rain fall,
Pattering the window pane gently,
Blurring my vision as if you are behind the glass,
It makes me angry, I squeeze my pillow tightly,
Digging my fingertips deeper and deeper,
I rage that you are not here.
I'm trying to swallow the lump in my throat,
I can't hold back, my face swells to a blood red,
There's a dagger in my heart,
Twisting deeper and deeper, rubbing in the pain,
You're not here, you can't make me better,
Soft sound of your voice calms me, I love you.

That I know Ill never find
The ones on the tip of my tongue
The ones always running through my mind
Dreams dont last forever
This love: time will sever
Not for me, no tears shall be shed
Ill sow back your heart with my needle and thread
This summer is one Ill never forget
Lets keep going its not over yet
Well listen to the radio and hear our favorite song
Well blast the sound so loud and start to sing along
Lets hope these days wont ever end
But just for now well just pretend
That theres no such thing as goodbyes
Well stay here believing in our lies
Eyes of beauty and lips of bliss
Feeling the sensation of every kiss
Holding hands, an entrancing stare
Laying in bed playing with your hair
These are the words Ive been trying to say
You make me happy in every single way
When this is over, youll stay inside my soul
Because it is my heart, my heart that yo

As innocent as you can get,
So they know nothing of,
