to the angel of the halls of time:
in the space of those untold-thousand terminal
heartbeats silent; the treetop sunbeams gliding
some forest thaw in spring where he was static
bled like ruin and heather in the cloudshperes
she danced not far, and whether or not she felt
the dynamic of weathered-storm skyshallow, yet
untired he moved to make not a sound and thus
was fashioned the beginning of an end

your shiver-smile is exultant.
i thought that
while i waited for the
suns to fall,
i would sing quietly
of the planescapes;
and how we, hand in hand
held the rising
jewels of the eternal apex
in that void, brimming with
life and interstellar
"your shiver-smile is exultant,"
i breathed in your ear
while you frosted over
and when again the suns
did climb to their zenith,
we were seen
as nothing less than
made of superstrings
FireI can see the burning fire in your eyesFire in Free Verse More Like This
it wraps me in warmth
the burning fire is full of passion
your smile makes the fire burn hotter
and I can feel it
the fire is making my heart beat faster
Its so loud that I can hear it
and I'm sure you can too
you approach me and I can feel the fire even more
your hand gracefully finds mine
holding your hand burns
I can hear it sizzling
your eyes meet mine and
the fire is making me swoon
you lean down so your lips
meet my ear
and you whisper
"I love you"
my ears heat up and I can feel those words
throughout my body making me feel
warm and dizzy
I stare at your lips and you get closer
til' our lips meet
and I'm on FIRE
PermanentI want to feel the small buzz of the tiny needlesPermanent in Free Verse More Like This
going up and down
I want to see the highly pierced man sitting next to me
to dip those buzzing needles into black ink
as he inhales the cigarette
that is hanging precariously from his saliva ridden mouth
I want him to blow smoke into my face as he asks
"Ya ready?" and I nod
I want to feel the rush of adrenaline seethe through my veins
I want to see the buzzing needles get closer and closer
I want them to finally touch my skin and inject
I want to hear myself gasp because it hurt more than I expected it to
I want to realize that this will be forever embedded into my skin
I want something permanent
Well, Honey...You think depression is a choice?Well, Honey... in Free Verse More Like This
Do you think I choose
To feel worthless?
To feel empty,
To feel sick to my stomach because I think too much?
To feel broken,
To feel hopeless,
Angry at myself..
To feel suicidal, sometimes without knowing a reason?
To feel the need to lay in bed all day,
Without moving a muscle,
Because getting up would just make me want to fall back down?
Depression is never a choice.
You don't choose depression.
Depression chooses you.
We don't need ignorant people to choose us, too.

Remember just one little thing.
There are places to go,
Where you have never been before.
How can you be sure those places are bad?
There are things to see,
Things you have never seen before.
How can you be sure those things are ugly?
There is a new tune to hear,
Something you've never heard before.
How can you be sure that tune is scary?
There are words to be said,
Things that have never been said before.
How can you be sure those words are hurtful?
There are dreams to be imagined,
Things you have never dreamed before.
How can you be sure that they are nightmares?
Darling, please don't give up.
Please stay strong.
Don't let go.

If "I feel less motivated" is your sole confession
So what if it kills your self-expression?
To falsely heal is a phychiatrist's profession
The antidote for sadness is medication
For escape from pain and self-mutilation
To release you from the freedom of no mental limitations
We are under the rule of a Prozac Nation
"Denial is bliss", thats what they say
The doctor's mantra, a prescription's right-of-way
"A chemical imbalance" is what makes you stay
A trance where everything seen is in shades of grey
"The melancholy I finally overcame"
It is only half truth, but that's what you claim
But when your artificial heaven was finally maimed
Our Prozac Nation was all that's left to blame

But i can't take it anymore
love me, hate me..
My eyes are filled with tears
and my heart is drenched in ice
there's one thing that makes me feel
aside from yor voice
and as i drag the blade
across my now painless wrist
somewere deep inside
im hoping you'll notice
Realize im bleeding
That you'll come save me..
But i know..
You'll never pull me back up
You'll shove me back farther
wish i could see your eyes one last time
Pray to something that your heart weren't empty
My love is meaningless to you
i gave everyting to you
I should have known..
Maye when im gone
You'll realize what you tossed aside
when im gone
you'll love me then
Rocking in my shadows
I can't banish the thougt of you..
You are my salvation..
You are my demise.
I gave it all away
Idont want it back
You've finally broken me baby..
I havent the stength to walk away
To dry my veins..
My release is in the blood
can you feel it?
Lucifer's fallLucifer's fall in Free Verse More Like This
Look at yourself!!Look!
You're the brightest star of them all.
See,darling,you're the most beautiful one,
But still,you chose to fall.
Your wings shattered,
And your soul went black,
Did you ever regret it,my dear?
You keep it silent,there's no way back.
You left heaven behind you,
Do you miss it? I know I do,
I miss the innocence and the glitter,
The sweetness of the clouds and the truth.
I miss my wings,
Yes,honey,I lost them too.
See,when you fell,
I jumped. I fell with you.
I just wish you'd take me in your embrace,
Hold me tight and never let me go
Your sinful lips on mine,
Send me the wind and I'll know.
I can feel you all over,
My body is sinful,my soul is almost gone
I know the taste of your scent,love,
And I know your body is still warm.
And one day,I just felt the known heat;
I felt your lips on my neck,your arms around me
I looked at the mirror,how fucking good we are together.
And in that darkness,I knew,you'll never leave.
Never Let Her GoNever Let Her Go in Free Verse More Like This
I cut my wrists today.
And instead of feeling relief or guilt for what I had done,
I started to cry.
I had told him I wanted to die.
But as soon as I saw the blood flow from my wrist,
Tears fell from my face.
What had I done?
Why did I do this?
I quickly patch them up and run for the phone.
But how do I tell him?
How do tell him I am going to die?
I start to cry more when he says hello.
When he asks if I'm ok, I tell him no.
Before he can say another word, I tell him my life has come to end.
I tell him that I love him, but more importantly,
Not to ever let her go.
