Edward Scissor Handstongues slipping in the dark

is all i know of your story
so, i'll cry with you tonight
we'll lose ourselves in the stars
within the branches of the pink dogwoods
because we cannot touch
i watched them massacre you
from behind a pexi-glass screen
as anger pulsed an elevating pain in my ears
so, lie next to me tonight
you'll lose yourself with my amnesia kisses
because you've never touched

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.

alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.

Let me die,
It hurts to live,
Let me die,
My soul to give.
I want to die,
Give me rest,
I don't want to try,
Just a bullet in the chest.
Every acrid breath makes sweet death,
Like the gentle touch of a lovers caress.
Let me die,
I beg you please,
Pain and disease
Are only a tease.
Give me a place,
Where I can be free,
Where demons wont chase,
And torture me

Feet keep time, ears tell mind, that this music is way too fast,
Cymbals clash, mallets bash, against the heads of drums,
The world seems to spin, as the band begins, and joins the percussion line,
Suddenly the music stops, signaling the end of the song,
Please tell me why, it feels so wrong, when the sounds of the pumping drums are gone?

Screaming at me,
clawing at every inch
of my body.
That little voice inside my head
sounding strangely like my own,
tearing me down,
from the inside.
Each hate-filled blow,
hits harder than the last.
Each self-inflicted cut,
hidden in shame,
nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,
visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.
little dotted lines drawn
over every flawed bit of me.
Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch
within my being.
Why can't I be beautiful?

Just yesterday I finally came to see you,
Just yesterday I missed you more than I usually do and,
Just yesterday I remembered again how much I need you.
Just yesterday has come and gone and,
Just yesterday is just a memory of all that went wrong.

I'm a stranger to you

You don't know who I am

I can't take my eyes
I can't take my eyes away
from the fact you are looking

Lightly like never before
this feels different
like I don't know you
like we have never met before
you look dazed
more than dazed

I did, I'm sorry
I forgot you don't know me yet
I'll have to watch you and wait for you
until you remember everything you know
I did, I'm sorry
I forgot the memories I have you don't share
I'll have to keep telling you stories

I don't expect you.
I wanted you to arrive;

I need to tell you how unhealthy I am,
how the only time I move is to go

I do not know how I refuse to shower.
It has become a custom, a culture,

I miss your errant smiles. The way

I'm exhausted from lying in bed.
The house seems unfamiliar.
Used to be alive;

we are cold.
I grab on tight,
Because there is nothing to hold.
I see them there,
and they see me.
I see the world,
and it is cold.
We kill and rot,
'til we just grow old.
There is nothing,
left to hold.
No one sees,
keeps us all vain.
No one cares if you suffer,
as long as they are ok.
No one cares who you are,
Just so long as insignificant, you stay.
And that is all you will be,
because life just sucks that way.
No one cares,
about your good ambition,
Just so long as the earth,
suffers this "cold condition".
Your goals dissappear,
Your grades start to slip.
You start to question,
If life is even worth it.
Thoughts of death,
Fill your head.
You begin to think,
that you are better off dead.
But thats ok,
because they don't care.
In this world,
of death and despair.
You are no one,
and no one knows you.
There is only one thing left,
that you could possibly do.
You can't make a difference,
we don't give a damn.

As I lay fragmented and broken
He destroyed what was left of my heart
Casting me into eternal darkness,
For so long I've searched for a way to escape,
Only to be surrounded by this inky blackness
Everything was dismal, nothing made sense
Everywhere I turned, I was surrounded by pain
And all of it came from making a deal with him,
The beautiful devil with the cold, wicked eyes
Same dark smile that haunts me still
Out of nowhere, you appeared to me,
Sent from beyond the realm of dreams
And I was the one who cast you away.
But you hunted me, tracked me down
Using our hearts as a guide
To find your way back to me
It is indescribable, but I will try.
Your scent sends chills through me,
With a voice that breathes life into
My abused, broken soul;
Your touch amazes me with every breath
And when you look at me with those eyes,
My entire world stops
Only for you.
I want to share this feeling with the world,
Yet I do not know how to name

History likes to repeat itself,

begging that the stars would stop spinning
in her dreams like toys

Alone and weak
As insults rain down
Across her rosy cheeks
Staining once pure skin
Is a knife to her heart.
Just kill yourself
No one would care
Silently she moves
Their taunting words
Haunting her every move
Where are you going?
Oh wait it doesn't matter
No one would love a bitch like you.
When she gets home,
Her mother doesn't ask
How she is
She goes to her room,
Cries more than she ever has before
And wishes for her life to end
As she falls asleep
She prays for some escape
From her personal hell.
Then she awakens the next day
To begin it all over again
Who would ever love a girl like her?

I hear the wolves as they echo through
Darkest hour of the brightest light of night,
Nothing could ever be as dark as you
And what you are to me
What are you to me?
I merely blinked,
As I was eaten alive
Consumed by your hatred
And bled out of such rage.
I've only a single word for you:
Run as far from me,
And as fast as you can;
Else I should catch you
And devour all that is
A thousand ways to fight this feeling,
I shouldn't feel it.
I've never felt that I was human
Surely I must be a monster,
Fighting this monstrous voice inside,
The sound of instinct;
What the hell am I?
I catch your scent on the wind
And know only one thing:
That I must go to you.
Clawing my way past,
Nothing will stand in my way.

Are you lonely ?
Lost within such a Labyrinthine heart,
Ruling from somewhere up so high,
Glaring down at me with those eyes
There you stand,
So opaque and obscure
With all the little pieces of us,
Twinkling in the distance,
Cannot fill the spaces between
Those that separate our hearts.
And I can't even say your name,
I wish I could just tell you
Someday I will find the strength
To say these words to you
What are you really playing at?
