That I'm in my bed
Wrapped up in my blankets
Cuddling with my teddy bear
And I wish that it was you.
That sweet love song
We like to sing
Playing in my headphones
And I try to keep
The tears from falling.
I know you wouldn't want me to be sad...
But I'm so lonely tonight...
And maybe, just maybe
If I imagine hard enough I can feel...
Your arms wrapped about me
Your warm breath on my skin
And your heartbeat next to mine.

Slinking closer, the tendrils of its presence precede it
The building tension peaks and I have to wonder
If the cataclysm of pain isn't the same as passion.
Tears, tears of anger dripping down my face
The rain of sweet love that's become twisted
Blood, the blue blood that flows red
That bleeds heavy and hot for you
Sweetest touches, slowly, lingering
Whispers of softness
Tearing through me, ripping me apart
Breaking my heart.

With a rare, soft, quietly spoken word of love
Agony, pain, depression, death and sadness
Are the voices of your world
You spin your webs and crooked lies
That I don't believe and can see behind
What they really are and pretend to be
Nothing more than a mask...a facade
To keep you safe from the hurt and pain
Duck around the walls to glimpse your soul
That part of it that you can't help but let me see
Don't push me away, loving you is where I want to be.
Our Farewell...A handful of photographsOur Farewell... in Free Verse More Like This
A memory of a smile
A resounding laugh that lingers
An embrace of warmth and love
A dream of a different ending
A wish of happier times
A hope of another meeting
A loss of your beautiful life
A week of crying myself to sleep
A month or two or more of numbness
A year of missing you
And there are more yet to come
I never thought it could happen,
That that day would come so soon,
That I'd never get to say goodbye
And I am missing you,
For this is our final farewell.

maybe i need some help myself
But how can i shut that door?
How can I try to help people
If I'm the one who cries
Why look to me for support
When I can't even keep tears from my eyes
I cry each day, but only at night
To keep the world away out of fear
I know if I let anyone see
No one will ever want to be near
I'm supposed to be the one
People turn to when they're blue
Though I may be broken, dying inside
Hiding it's the best thing I can do
I know it all seems pathetic
Which is why no one can see
The pain I bury deep inside
No one needs to deal with this from

Before her mother dies, while she is still able, she gives a beautiful gift. The words, "You have to power to create anything you want." And the girl believes in these words more than anything.
So she sets out to create her own life, the one that she always wanted. Most importantly she needs to find something that will fill the hole. A sense of belonging, a home to replace the one she has left. She imagines the most beautiful life. Over time all of

I'm waiting for the radiance of the dawn to come on more strong
You make me warm, so I'm by your side
Even if I commit a crime, even if the worlds is against me
I want to keep having the dreams that I do when I'm with you
If you were to gather up all of my sighs from when I get bored
And put them all in a bag, could I be happy then?
I don't need words anymore; if we hold hands, that's enough for me
Because you'll always, always be important to me
The truth is that happiness is with me

And adorn the faded sky with it
If I'm injured, if I can't fly away from here
I'll just put on a pretty color that shines

Sadness is your center
It all points to some greater thing behind you
Behind those eyes of yours
It all truly is pathetic
The way you cry
The way you kiddingly "act" sad or scared
The way you smile
The way you frown
The way your tears flow
The way you love cute things
(all of them are sadness, sometimes veiled with a thin smile)
The way you text
Even the way the buttons click on your pathetic little phone
It all reminds me of a stereotypical sad little girl
Who never did anything wrong
But is always let down
And doesn't even try anymore
You appreciate the most basic things
You act like they're extraordinary
That I listen
That I cry
That I care
Because not even the most basic things
Can be found in your miserable little life
How sad it must be
To be hated by those who are supposed to love you
Lovely CompostitionsShe sat there,Lovely Compostitions in Free Verse More Like This
For this was her room,
She locked herself in her room,
In fear of exactly what had happened,
At that point the one thing that kept her hanging on,
Was that lovely composition of songs he made,
She loved them,
She felt the songs understood her,
She detached and listened,
And she did so everyday,
But one day something was different, wrong,
The notes lost their ring and became flat,
The words lost their meanings and became lies,
She panicked and checked all of the other compositions,
It was all the same,
They were all the same,
She had lost hope,
Just as the songs lost importance,
She had lost trust,
Just as he lied to her.

As you slip away slowly from my reach
I seem to lose my power of speech
Breathless I wilt, as I drop to my knees
Tearless I choke, as I try to weep
My punctured heart bleeds as I seek
To destroy your memory that lingers and creeps
Through my mind, interrupting my sleep
Your memory haunts me in my dreams
Your face clouds my vision as I try to see
Beyond you, I yearn for inner peace
But your voice echoes through my thoughts when I think
Those three beautiful words you used to say to me
The sweetest words, you didnt mean
Heartbroken and lost, I start to grieve
Voiceless I try, but I cannot scream
Youve burned what was left of my self-esteem
Youve sucked all the life I had inside of me
Like a malicious bitter blood-sucking leech
You used my love to satisfy your greed
You played with my mind, just to feed your needs
For an ego-boost, such a selfish deed
Lies and manipulation, you did naught but breed
I was just your stepping stone

For that first taste
Of our first kiss
That moment of grace
Where I stand tippy-toed
With my arms around your neck
My face moves closer to yours
I start off with a gentle peck
Then our lips glide on one anothers
As we sink deeper into each other
Mesmerised by this precious moment
For at last, we are truly together
Your fingers brush through my hair
I feel your tongue stroke against mine
We come as one, through this moist kiss
A kiss so pure, a kiss so divine
This kiss we have both wanted
This kiss, a pleasure never innocent
A kiss that will forever be remembered
As the beginning of our companionship
Moments go by
We get closer to that first kiss
And heaven forbid
That this chance, we ever miss
For it would be a pity
If this desire remained a dream
Yes it would be a pity
If this dream remained unreal
Im waiting and waiting for this moment
When this beautiful dream to comes to life
Where you are here with me at last
So I can kiss your lips, whilst you kiss

Everything about you.
The way you walk.
The way you talk.
All the stupid little things you do.
They make you perfect.
Perfect for me.
They're what makes me so lost.
Lost in everything you.
Mine No LongerNothing dulls the painMine No Longer in Free Verse More Like This
Not even this knife
Your words are engraved upon my skin
You voice trapped in my memory
No matter how much I rip my skin,
Your words still remain
No matter how many times I lose my mind,
Your voice is still there
My body goes through the motions
But really I'm a thousand miles away
In your arms
Just like I always wanted to be
You lips meeting mine
Then I hear someone calling me name
I realize it's not you
That I'm only dreaming again
I can't pretend anymore
I break down
My heart shatters
I know you're no longer mine
That you'll never be mine again
I am forced to remember
Remember what we had
What we could've had
Something I can no longer have
But someone I will always long for...
You and me...

It almost feels like I'm in the rain
But I'm curled up in my bed
You're the whole reason I'm like this
Or is it really my fault?
Eyes never dry
Body never stops shaking
Stop telling me lies
That you still love me
That you'll come back
We'll be together again
Because you know what?
That's just bullshit
I've hard those one too many times
And I'm not going to believe you
You broke my heart
Can you hear it shattering?
Oh wait...I forgot you can't
You no longer care to hear
My words fall upon deaf ears
As well as my screams
I tried to make you stay
But you just turned your back
Said we'd be better this way
You're like everyone else
Why did I trust you?
Let you in?
Why did I believe you were different?
My eyes burn along with my lungs
Holding on to the last jagged piece
The last piece I have of you
It cuts deep into my skin
But I only hold it tighter
Letting the blood trickle down
Falling into the puddle of what I used to
