and hurt her like you did
you hurt her with your promise
you hurt her with your lies
you broke her apart by
breaking your promise
by bringing back memories
she never wanted to see again
she's breaking apart right now
and dying inside even more
her heart is hurting so much
and she cannot even breathe
and it's all your fault

It helps me to feel
After the pain
I begin to heal
What was never there before
Born freshly from the wound
Just like the light from the Sun
Allows us to see the Moon
Opposing forces clash and bring
Something neutral and serene
Angel and Devil breed once more
The child of balance seen
Seethe from the anguish that I feel
Lick the wound and hide
Step into my world of dreams
Over clouds I glide
Then at last behind me
This horrible memory fades
I'm left with only the new dawn
Light revealing new shades
You must suffer for the cure
Suffer, then relief
Create, destroy, create once more
The cycle will repeat
There is no life without our deaths
No comfort without pain
Realize what must be done
And hurt me once again

Hope that my screams will reach your ears
That you will come to save me
Is it possible to die of a broken heart?
I feel thats whats happening now
Im crying now
These relentless tears
I see your face
And my heart twists
It hurts to know you wont love me
Because Im not what youre expecting
Im not what you want
It still hurts here
A pain I feel that cant be erased
Please make the pain stop!
Make it stop please
Im still crying now
With these words Im hoping my heart can forget you
But with the air of love around
It makes it hard to be able to forget
And the way you made my heart hurt
How you turned my love for you into pain
I dont know how I can forget that
Im reaching out for you
Hoping you will come into my arms
To make the pain stop
I look toward the sky
Thinking that maybe youre under the same stars I am
Feeling the breeze on my skin
Sending shivers down my spine

I'll cry a thousand tears tonight
Nothing will ever turn out right
I hate the fact that I ruined it
By sayin all that stupid shit
Maybe I'm just not good enough
Guess I'll have to be tough
I wont forget you
Even though I guess we're through
After all the things I told you
I thought maybe you knew
Not to break my heart
Not to rip my life apart
Not to mess me up some more
You cut me to my core
I almost wish we never met
Wish I didnt have to live life with regret
I've made so many mistakes but you are
And the best
Different from all the rest
I was flying so high
They tried to bring me down I let 'em try
I was the happiest I have ever been
Even sadder than the times when
I knew there was no reason for my life
That problems where solved with a knife
I dont need these games you play
Tell me straight and tell me today
Do you hate me?

I must not pull the blade

and hope that one day
it drives in deeper
I must not fear the darkness
or shudder at the thought of silence
I must not hide myself from
life and prying eyes that
judge your worth as a person
upon the shine of your smile
you hear no gasp escape my mouth
you hear no horror tale from my past
you hear no words of pain
therefor I must not be in pain
I must not scream so loud it's silent
or throw things against my

and punch things that no one else can see

in the hopes that i will forget

and pray i find the courage to

you don't see or hear my pain
therefor you think i feel no pain
you see what I choose for you to see

The one who lied constantly and let emotions get the better of her.
I'm the girl who wears a mask at every waking moment.
I'm the girl who wishes she was somebody else.

Seems as though the whole world
Revolves around you without me
But, I am still here loving you
As you grow without me
My arms are always open
And my words "I Love You"
Spoken for you and you alone
Fallen tears no longer run
But, the memories still linger on
And the heartache still evident
All I can do is think of you
Being without you is better
So, I am always told
But, come next winter
My feelings for you
Will grow colder
And I will be over you
But, as I spring into summer
I dread the end of it
For I always take a fall
And find myself still loving you

I will miss the closeness we all once had.
Had the keyword to the past.
How can one moment ruin a lifetime of trust?
Our bond is no longer held together by the fabric of time,
One snip from the scissors tore us all apart.
Can I tell you all I cry at night?
Because we arent together anymore?
I feel lost,
I always looked to each one of you for advice
but time changed, we changed.
One goes with the other
And I get caught in the middle.
I cant stand it anymore
I cry for each and every one of us.
The memories of yesterday are always haunting my mind.
I want us to laugh together.
We act like children trapped in an adult appearance
Its frustrating but can you see that?
Never had you all noticed I tried and still try
To keep us together.
When the world turned us down
We always had our own world to turn to.
Im angry at all of you
But I cant stop these tears from falling.

This feeling is something that cannot be beaten
In all my attempts at overcoming it I have fallen
Its power is too overwhelming for one to conquer
Lost in this darkness; Overcome with fear and pain
My only wish is to have someone here to rid me of it
Someone here to hold me tightly and whisper in my ear
"Everything will be ok, I'm here now"
Only they arent here, nor are they coming
Oh how I long to be rid of this feeling
But onward I must tread with its weight upon my back
Unable to be rid of this hurt and pain
For loneliness knows no company...
thin and sinYour daughter is looking through you with those heartbreaker eyes and you've never felt so low. Her fingers are jammed down her throat and oh God you can see scars running down her arms, naked butterflies, lines you don't remember being there before. She's poised above the toilet, head dangling above the pit where she's purged out her heart and you can't help it: you pull her back.thin and sin5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Why are you doing this to yourself, your mind screams to her. for God's sake, why?
She blinks softly, and you hear a flush and the tap go on. Her gaze never trails away, and you instinctively take a step forward until you realize you've been speaking out loud.
Why should I believe in what God wants me to do, she speaks slowly, steadily, when he doesn't bother believing in me?
You watch as her bird-arms snake protectively around her waist, the piano bones of her ribcage jutting through and all that's running through your head is where did I go wrong?
Bleeding HeroHow can I explain my feelings to you? My bitter, tarnished love, how it burns in my throat like too much soda. How I hate that I love you more than you know. But I love you all the same.Bleeding Hero5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I am the burnt-out streetlight under the falling night sky. The fleeting joy of a balloon that slips away to the clouds. And I'm sick of band-aids that don't work, I'm sick of being the bleeding hero.
Don't you realize what I'm worth? You dropped me like a penny on the street corner and everything went black. I gave you a choice and you ripped my love to shreds.
Love isn't what I read about in sweet-dream magazines. It's not worth the doubt, but I doubt even that. I can't fit this band-aid on my broken heart.
You are everything to me, but I don't even know what everything is anymore. You used to burn in my thoughts, but not anymore. I'll let go of the balloon and I'll drink a sweeter poison.
I am the world's worst Romeo.

It tells me just how ugly

Of course my mirror is always right
I need to drop a pound or two.
My new diet should do the trick
almost nothing to eat until June.

His hand up her dress
Slipping it off of her.

And his hand's in her hair.
She tells him how much she cares.
The covers go over, Her dress is on the floor.
He took off his shirt after he locked the door.
Their lips lock together as they kiss,
I never believed my love would be like this.
And she's going now. And he comes back to bed.
They just killed me even though it was in my head.
And he thought I was asleep, he made the wrong call.
But, he has no idea....that I heard it all.
I HurtEvery day, I wake up in pain, it is my reality. I wish it didn't have to be this way, but it is what it is. Incidentally, I despise those words, "It is what it is", they make me feel...even more helpless than I already do, they both anger and frighten me. My life, how I feel, what I've lost, it makes me want to cry, sometimes it does make me cry. It makes me belligerent, I lash out at those I care about, those that care about me. It makes me afraid, afraid that I won't be able to care for my daughter, afraid that I won't be able to care for myself. Fear is not something I'm used to, neither is being "frail". The constant care I have to use to make sure I don't injure myself further takes it's toll as well, both mentally, and physically. It drains me.I Hurt6 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
