Your Not AloneYour words make me smile
Your eloquence and style
Are designed to bring cheer
Every time you call me dear
I can't let you be sad for long
You're a great person and strong
Your heart and mind are unmatched
All your fear and doubt are dispatched
You must rise above your sadness
Keep on reaching for the bliss
Remember that people like me exist
Even when the bad memories persist
I will always be your friend
I will always have time to lend
For a person as nice as you
I hope you see that I care too
Scared Of The Dark?All alone in the darknessScared Of The Dark?8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Left without even a kiss
Without somebody to hold
Who knew darkness was so cold
It's grip tightens on my mind
My vision suffocated, now blind
I'm falling alone in the dark
Left without love or it's spark
I can't escape it's mighty grasp
Holding me down like a steel clasp
I struggle to not be scared
But I'm left alone, my feelings bared

Trying to find a way to challenge this feeling
I knew it was true
and I knew I loved you
I could only cry
The day you would die
You aren't like the rest
Your better then the best
The days will grow longer
With you my heart will grow stronger
Every day and every night
I know, I knew, this felt right
You are mine, please say yes
I will be there for you in love and distress
I will always hold you dear
To my heart you will be near
My eyes, wet with a tear
Running down my cheek
You finally said yes
You'll be mine for all but the rest
Time has passed since then and there
The day you married me
That day that we missed
For now you are gone, It just can't be
You have passed life by
And with a final tear you did die
I said I would be brave
Till they laid me beside your grave

A distant memory fading away
Just to be remembered, you pray
Please God just save me this day
You yearn to be on everyones mind
You thought you were nice and kind
Until one day they left you forever
With only yourself in this endeavor
Some people call this life
It comes with struggle and strife
Whether you are happy or sad,
Doesn't matter if were good or bad
You thought people would care
Giving them love and hope in a prayer
But in the end they are all gone
You're faced with only yourself by dawn

Breaking down the wall
Your defence is down
Pounded into the ground
Crush the evil and hate
Bent on the attempt to annihilate
Fear never consumes the fire within
The pressure building under your skin
The steel comes crashing through
It's restraints unable to subdue
The might and power it imbues
With the strength and power true
Lifting up the tool in hand
Guiding truth for our last stand
The unforgiving mercy inside
With the path of justice we ride

Never Wish AwayWalking through the shadows to see glimpses of sun,Never Wish Away7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
You cannot know where the end lies,
Yet your faith is so strong and it will bring everyone,
To a happiness that can never die.
Because each struggle shall shape you and create in yourself,
A strength that never shall crumble,
And your love and your caring shall return all to health,
So they never ever shall tumble.
The lies that consume shall try to tear you apart,
But you cant let them win.
Find all the pockets of happiness that,
Are forgotten by so many people,
Those moments you share with the ones that you care for,
Those seconds you can never wish away.
The shadows cant get you if you focus on good times,
Of all that has now come your way,
So instead of your sulking and your desperate moaning,
Be grateful for every day.
Because so many are taken, with families shaken,
And not given chances at life,
But youre standing before me, at desolate doors and,
Youre waiting for ends to your strife.

Her pleas for forgiveness are floating away,
As she will be leaving us all very soon,
Hear as her heart strings strum out a tune.
All her poison, it gushes from each open wound,
She has counted the moments to this very day,
Hear as her heart strings strum out a tune,
(As) her pleas for forgiveness are floating away.

Strike fear into the bravest man,
All mortal laws shall cease to be,
And then shall start the anarchy.
All humans will then cast their eyes,
And watch as shadows steal the skies,
All hail the creatures of the deep,
Amongst you we will surely creep.
A war of powers; clashing sides,
The darkness and the light abide,
Who shall you fight for? Who will win?
Will you stand or sink in sin?
LeftDaddy, daddy I miss you!Left7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You used to make me feel like a princess, a master of the tale,
You left me feeling empty in a world full of strangers.
Daddy,daddy I miss you!
Your songs gave me wisdom, while you taught me love,
You left me feeling lost, in a world full of hate.
Daddy, daddy I love you!
Why did you let this happen?
All thats left is a body rotting; a woman gloating,
You left me furious in a world of violent fools!
Daddy, daddy I love you!
Hold me and make everything better,
Take me away from the pain; the knowledge that the world no longer knows you,
You left me alone to remember amongst amnesiacs!
Daddy, daddy- Do you love me?
Am I anything you wanted? Am I the daughter you meant me to be?
You let her take you away, so I couldnt learn from you.
You left me to this pain- whyd you leave me to cry?
Why won't you come back?
Simply ForgettingSecrets are told,Simply Forgetting7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In the bleeding of souls,
Yet what do we owe such a pleasure?
Our hearts become cold,
Our bodies grow old,
And into nothingness wither.
Why not ignore,
All that doth bore,
And amass in your broken down heart?
Open it more,
Just like before,
And there meet your end, not your start.
Emotions can lie,
And aptly defy,
All the restraints that you bear them,
Night after night,
You softly cry,
And often you quickly condemn.
Left all alone,
Narry a home,
Left to scavenge for laughter and love,
A murder condoned,
Of flesh and of bone,
By a woman of darkness and blood.
Closing thy eyes,
To what you despise,
Sometimes is the worthiest choice,
You never shall cry,
From what you deny,
By drowning the miserable voice.
In The Solace of NightmaresIn the solace of nightmares, of darkness that creeps,In The Solace of Nightmares6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And desolate screams that pierce through the air,
There is safety in pain and troubling sleep,
Where theres nowhere to hide and no one to care.
Danger is present; there is fear everywhere,
Every step that you take leaves you broken and weak
Yet you keep walking, your senses aware,
In the solace of nightmares, of darkness that creeps.
Blinded and lost like a wandering sheep,
A figure comes past you, then nobodys there,
All you can hear are the words that you speak,
And desolate screams that pierce through the air.
Your strength can endure all the turmoil you bear,
None can compare, they would lie in a heap,
Under torture, and times that are cruel and unfair,
There is safety in pain and troubling sleep.
Some secrets you share and the others you keep,
Some sides that you hide and the others lay bare,
Trust is not something that youll ever need,
Where theres nowhere to hide and no one to care.

Leaving me empty and useless inside
All I want to do is lay down and die
I don't care about myself or my pride
All I want is to be left alone
No more emotions, my heart is stone
No feelings inside, none left to hide
Your words falling on deaf ears
Tired of all the broken promises
Tired of hearing your empty words
I don't want to listen it's absurd
I just want someone, or has that never occured
I am all alone in my world
Your lies just make me want to hurl
I wish you would just tell the truth
Back like in the days of our youth

Cast out as she withers and dies,
Each step that she takes is forgotten,
Ghost of the world where she hides,
In her life shes seen never a joy,
Kept imprisoned in so many lies,
Marked by pain and such torturous noises,
On her own she will never be pacified,
Questions left in a mind of responses,
Shaken and stirred for a time,
Unable to escape all the voices,
With no courage she runs to exile,
Yesterdays child is forgotten, no one cares for the meaningless zilch.

Cut them loose with worthy deeds,
Each second passes, swiftly flies,
Gently as time holds thy heart,
In caring hands, in softened jest,
Knowing eyes catch all thine lies,
Mere shadows hide within the night,
Of destiny and prophecy,
Quiet thoughts silently roam,
Sleekly swimming with the tide,
Unjustly claiming every vice,
Which holds you and exonerates,
Your beauty, soul and zeal.

Blame rests only on me

No matter what I do
I can't keep going on,
Weathered one to many storms
I left my heart wide open,
Took a shot to the head
My soul is torn and dead
Gaping hole through which I bled

I love flowers. Do you love flowers? Flowers are so pretty cause they dont bother anyone and they make everyone smile. Even sad and mean people can look at flowers and smile and feel good for the day. And when you give flowers Daddy, it means you are giving someone love. I love flowers.
I love clouds too. They float around and make pretty shapes and colours and they are never the same! They always move! I saw a bunny rabbit in the clouds once, and it was so fluffy. It looked like it would start bouncing in the sky. Are there sky rabbits Daddy? Does the sky have a big place for the animals to play? Is that where animal Heaven is? Are people up there with the animals too? When I die, I wanna play with the animals. I hope God can work it all out for me.

The dark beings who want your soul
A fairy queen in a world of blood
And in the sky the thunder rolls
You find a place to sit and think
About the fallen tree that holds your wings
All around you can hear their howls
Anguished cries of deep, dark things
And if you had never fallen in
Love with a twisted demon prince
Who didn't care nor want to love
But you ignored the eager hints
Now you know what you've done wrong
Now you must run from the hunt
You cry 'bout what a fool you've been
Fall and bask in the blackened sun
Though the trees they block your path
But not the creatures of the night
You keep on because you know
After darkness must come light

I cannot take this pain away,
Its sat with me for way too long,
I'd feel weird to have it gone.
Yet Sir I must be rid of it,
To serve my purpose, I admit,
That parting with its harsh embrace,
Could leave me masked without my face.
And Sir, while I hide I cannot see,
And my true worth I cannot be,
So how do I lose something old,
That's part of me and very cold.
So I'll be frank Sir, I don't know,
How I try to face and show,
All that hurt that I have felt,
From all the filth that I've been dealt.
I do not know Sir, help me please,
Help me up now from my knees,
Remove my walls, unblock my mind,
So I can be with all my kind.
I have a problem that i must solve,
And though i dig and I do delve,
It will come eventually,
And Sir- one day I will See.
