Bring You BackI wish I could bring you back,
Show you all the good in life -
Everything you forgot to live for.
Take a walk with me,
Ill let you see everything thats gone on.
Show you whats happened to the person you took your life for.
Oh, if you only knew the kind of person she has turned into.
Lies on top of mind games,
Smiles hiding the evil to her plans,
Someone who will never stop breaking hearts.
If you only knew then she wasnt worth it.
I understand everything you felt.
Every question that lingered in your mind.
The need to die was strong, I know.
If only I could have grabbed your hand before you jumped.
I sit here and wonder who youd be today.
Successful, Im sure.
Maybe you would be a doctor,
Allowing people to stay another day,.
Saving those who try to take their lives,
Instead of taking your own.
Id do anything for you to live again.
Look at the things shes done.
See the person she is with right now.

You're So PatheticAll this time,You're So Pathetic6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Its been me being the one whose sorry.
The one thinking everything went wrong because of me.
Well those thoughts all wash away now.
Ive woken up,
Now youre the one who deserves to get the blame.
How stupid I was for chasing after you after those things you said.
What was I thinking writing all those poems to you?
Telling you I loved you.
Telling you I needed you.
Begging for one more chance.
Promising you that Id change.
What the hell was I doing?
You dont deserve to have me crying over you.
Those words of hate you threw at me,
The shoulders you turned while I fell to the floor.
Im not the one who needed to change.
Your so fucking selfish.
Everything is perfect as long as your getting what you want.
Cheat on me,
Feed me lies,
Keep me thinking Im the only one you want.
I should have went with my gut.

I knew what you were doing behind my back.

Thinking of all the words to say to you
That I never did before.
But none of them would come out right.
I could write for days on end until my hands start to bleed,
But no matter how much I write,
And no matter what words I spill onto my paper,
It wont change a thing.
Time will go by and the ink will start to fade away with the lines,
Just like your feelings faded from what they were before.
Sometimes I wish my mind would draw a blank,
Stop with all the thoughts,
Stop with all the words.
But no matter what I do,
The words just seem to overflow.
The images and thoughts of us,
The sound of your voice,
The diamond in your eyes when a smile would light your face,
I cant stop seeing you in everything I do.
Im helpless and lost.
Drowning in a pool of memories,
Of the only life I ever truly wanted.
Inside I cant stop crying.
I feel my heart collapse and break with every hit of reality
That reminds me that youre gone.

'Cause I've got alot to say to you.
Things you would never expect to hear from me.
Crawling on the floor to get to you.
Begging at your feet for you to take me back.
Ha, well that's all over now.
Take the truth and fill it with lies.
Take your heart and turn it cold.
Oh, but thats not at all the kind of person I want.
No, not this time around.
Pretending such things never happened.
Thats where I made my mistake.
But those mistakes stop now.
Talk your lies to me.
Come on, feed them to me.
Wanna look me in the eyes and pretend your real?
Might as well look away.
'Cause baby, you don't phase me at all.
Up and down,
The roller coaster of your emotions stops now.
Let's play your games.
Bet you anything I'll win this time around.
Tell me what karma feels like.
Cause I won't stick around long enough to help you through.
Games are over.
Get up and leave.
You're not welcome here anymore.
Memories Too Strong To FadeThey say the more you try to forget,Memories Too Strong To Fade6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The more you remember.
But even when I dont try to forget
Youre still my only thought.
Head is screaming now.
Surrounded by people everyday.
Friends that can always make me smile.
A girlfriend who wants nothing more than to be my everything.
Laying in her arms to feel her touch,
But no touch is as sweet as yours.
No matter how many people are around me,
I still feel so alone without you.
The time keeps ticking,
But I feel as if it hasnt moved at all.
Stuck in the past.
Memories flash through my mind,
Like one of those old love movies.
Black and white
But so beautiful.
Trying to pick a favorite memory
But thats just too impossible.
Theres too many memories.
But in each and every one
That beautiful smile of yours still lingers in my eyes.
Youve lied to me.
Left me to fall to my knees.
Broken almost every promise you've ever made to me.
The SuspectShe was dead.The Suspect2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dead as they come. Face down in the dirt. Her hair strewn out down her back. Her leg at an impossible gut wrenching angle. I saw her. I wish I never had. I wish I wasn't so curious.
I met her on Halloween evening, of '98. She was dressed as a cat. Black ears, fuzzy tail, flashy green contacts. She was very cat like indeed.
Kimberly Wates was alive that night. I didn't kill her. I didn't even know her. No, I'd never even met her the night before. Her friends were giggly, I guess, just like any set of girls. They were regular, casual, the type you wouldn't think capable of murder. Innocent, you might say.
She was drinking cola. No, I believe she opened it herself. No poison. When I met her, she held out her hand and smiled. She had lip stick, red, on her front tooth. I smiled at her anyway. I made it no big deal. I didn't want to embarrass her.
No. She hadn't been drinking. There was alcohol at the party, but she seemed completely sober when I met her. Kimberly d
Cold and Broken HallelujahSometimes you cry in your sleep, like you're dreaming of a memory you'd rather forget. You touch my hips like they could break, and kiss my fingers when you're sad. I can't make you better; you're fucked for good. I like that you touch me like I'm delicate, like you're scared that your fingertips will rub away at my skin and muscle until all you're holding is bones. I wish that I could keep you, but you're a wildcat with jagged edges sharp enough to draw blood. No one can have you. Not even me.Cold and Broken Hallelujah3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
If I let the tears fallI feel a pain so real and deep,If I let the tears fall3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wonder why I just let it steep.
My heart aches for what was mine,
But you don't come back across the line.
You stay on your side with her,
And I stay here not feeling very sure.
You said I would be your wife,
Told me everyday I was your life.
But now you say the same to this child,
She's not sweet nor is she mild.
I wonder how you can love a poison like that,
She plays a game you are the mouse and she is the cat.
I cry over and over wondering what went bad,
It's been a long time but I am still sad.
If I cry once more will it leave me,
If I find a better love will I be able to see?
Will I be able to live without you,
If I just let my tears fall true.
Unexpected callThe night winds howlUnexpected call3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
White curtains twist and dance
To the cracks in the window seal.
She's rests as well as her ails allow.
The pillows beside her lay empty
Only hers are filled with their resting head,
She tosses in fret of graves
And the spirits set free
Bells scream on the side
Freeing her from frets.
She lifts the reviver in hope.
Perhaps he was just on home's ride?
His voice did speak,
It was that of another man.
He news was grave
And her love's heart was weak.
She'd not the time
To dress in a hurry,
For he was already fading
The monitor spoke it's last line.
She heard the high scream
Through the whisper of the phone,
Her love would live naught,
But yet still in her dream.

Just waiting for the day I can feel alive.
What ever happened to the days of gold?
Seems like this story just keeps getting told.
So I'm staring down the barrel of a 45 tonight.

No logic, no pain.
No pressure, no gain.

Counting my sins tonight, so I can feel alive.
AnniversaryIt's always been hard for us, walking down the street together. Never knowing what's acceptable to those around us, never knowing the atmosphere of the crowds. I stole a glance across at her and smiled as I caught her stealing one back at me. She grinned at me and I felt myself respond in kind, I couldn't stop myself when she looked at me like that. Screw the crowds, today's a special day, I thought, and took her hand without a moment's further hesitation. There was no immediate reaction, no-one raised a fuss, no-one even looked at us.Anniversary3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
She leaned in closer, a risky manoeuvre, and whispered in my ear, "I love you, Mellie."
I used the hold I had on her hand to pull her down a side street, where the crush of the crowds was less intense and we had a tad more privacy. Emboldened by her words, I kissed her and whispered back, "Happy Anniversary, my love."

You brush you hand down my arm
My body shivers at the touch
You got me wishing for you
I just want to keep you to myself
Just because off the little touches

Hold OnDo you ever hear sirens, see flashing lights?Hold On9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's a horrible scene & it's real life
Ever have to leave your life without your word in?
Scared to death with tear-filled eyes
This is what some kids go through everyday
Reality to them is just a dark & scary place
Mixed feelings of anger & fear and sadness
Then other kids tease & cause a big mess
Your parents aren't with you & your in foster care
Crying & suicidal because your life isn't fair
So now your on the verge of death
Screaming & crying because this may be your final last breath
But whatever you do, take this advice from me:
Hold on, if you feel like letting go
Hold on, it gets better than you know
Your one step closer, It isn't over
Many people take their lives without ever hearing those words
So keep your life, spread your wings and fly like the birds
If you don't you'll never know what you missed out on
In time things will get better, if you're not gone.

It never happened like this, this thing between me and Brian. And I mean never. Usually on tour if I so much as looked at him in that way I was out on my ass and had to bunk with Johnny at the other end of the bus. We had been sat in the hotel bar drinking with Matt, Johnny and the Berries 'til late. I threw in the towel first due to jetlag and general weariness. For once we had actually booked individual rooms as we were being joined by the girls the next day. I could still hear the guys from my room as I slipped out of my show gear, dropping my jeans, underwear and shirt in a pile on the bathroom floor. They were hooting with laughter, probably at some prank Jason and his brother were planning. I unscrewed the barbell in my septum and placed the body jewellery on the marble sink before taking a quick shower to wash off the layer of sweat I'd built up during the show.
I didn't bother wearing a towel when I stepped out of the cubicle, instead just dried my hair with it and dumpe

It was late November when I met him. I'd just left an infuriating meeting with the fat cats at Nickelodeon; they had seen the pilot episode of my short animation 'The Breakfast Monkey' and were interested in running a trial series on their network. At this point illustration and art was my entire life, so, in spite of my aversion to anything commercial, I gave it a chance. Bad idea. I'd turned up in my best suit, my raven hair slicked back and my original sketches in a large plastic folder. I'd even caught the first train to New York at 5.45AM despite the meeting not starting until 9.30. For possibly the first time in my life it seemed I looked normal, respectable even. After 4 cups of coffee at a small café two blocks over from the headquarters and several addresses as 'Sir' and not 'buddy' I was feeling pretty pumped. Even the woman at reception desk appeared to flirt with me, which I politely acknowledged, but did not reciprocate, there was this girl I was sort of seeing, and t

In what's left of my heart.

Be rid of it all.
