Jimmy's DeadJimmy?Jimmy's Dead in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
He got shot in the head
By his girl wearing a blood soaked dress
I guess it was for the best
But still his heart beats in the other girls chest
I wonder if he said any last words
Or was he choking on his own blood
It was only a matter of time
Til' the flood hit her line
He came to the house half past eight
She kissed him
Still loved him so
But then felt the taste
And now she has to explain to her daddy why there's tomato paste
I guess Jimmy forgot to leave
Or was it because she heaved
The shotgun seemed so harmless
Til a girl became so heartless
And now Jimmy's Dead
Message From MeWhat's in a lie?Message From Me in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
What's it to die?
If your alive
Can you survive?
I'm a cast away lost at sea
So I'll send you a message from me
If somehow the whole world reads it
They wouldn't believe it
And as the letter goes
The people sit in rows
To hear the heart
To remember the art
It plays with their minds
But in their heart they will find
This message to be true
And it's only meant for you

Little girls holding their severed arm while they cry

A priest reading text
A priest gunned down by a sect
Think about it, what the world is?
Think about it, how we did this?
Think about it, kids learn to cuss
Guns in the hands of African kids
They got told it makes them a man
To kill and not cry
So much blood spilled on the sand
We cannot begin to understand
Let them live the way they want
Let them taunt us with this violence
But still we can't keep the silence
Gunshots ring out in the night sky
Children growing up still wondering why
Raise them, never let them go
The world is a dangerous flow
Money, guns, blood
And the footprints are still there from where we stood
Life has caught up with us
Still loyal and patriotic, still I fuss

With my reply I just nodded my head

FearFearFear in Academic Essays More Like This
Fear is the whisper in the wind, it is felt by everyone. No matter who you are this is the most felt emotion today. Think about all those commercials on television, you know the ones that want you to buy things for your so called "complexion". They create fear whether it is from fear of not looking good all the way to a fear of death.
This creates the paranoia in our world that plagues everyone. Even the people that say that they fear nothing will fear at least one thing. An atheist would probably fear god if he descended from the heavens this very instant to right the world of our wrong.
As much as fear affects us it gives us a weapon we use against everything. Curiosity is its gift and without it we would still be living in the dark ages. We are like new born babies to a plethora of things and fear helps get by and discover new things we could never possibly dream of. Think about the guy who consumed the first chicken. He probably was afraid of death from the first s

Sex in public should be alright, Hun

Generic Love LetterTo whom this letter concernsGeneric Love Letter in General Non-Fiction More Like This
This is a love letter, but not a generic love letter. Usually they say just "hey I will always love you forever" but that is not all what this letter has to say. This letter is to someone special someone I love. Someone who could never make me mad no matter what. I would say I love you but that is not enough for how I feel, words do not express anything I want to say. With saying that I will however try to explain how I feel about you.
You are the sun to me, your warm radiance caresses me when I am cold. When I'm down your voice always finds it's way through my thin crevices reassuring me that it's alright and I can talk to you about anything. You care about me when I do not ask it of you, this is new to me because I have never met someone who has cared about me like you do. You get angry when someone talks of me in the wrong way, which shows me I'm something special too.

It don't matter what your sins

If I Were DeadIf I Were Dead in Other More Like This
Feelings can hurt right down to the core
They can infect your body, make you feel sore
Your soul is clean, Your mind is healed, and they want you to take all these pills
Life gives you hell, it tries to throw you down
It's hard to resist the urge to frown
So down on the page I write a sacrifice of ink tonight
We've all been there
Felt our chest bare
A thousand lashes from the whip
Things begin to hurt
Sometimes the blood will spurt
Now think about your coffin
What would it look like?
Would it welcome you or swallow you up whole?
Think about their frowns and the black gowns
But if you survive think about your life
Think maybe you'll have a wife or be his wife
A happy newly wed
As you lie in bed with your love
You think to yourself you can't get enough
What is it that we strive on?
What is it that makes us survive?
The heart is only a muscle
Human soul has never been proved
But with it people feel moved
A kiss on the cheek
A kiss on the lips
Is all the world needs
To survive a sip

Of a soft kiss and her face
Thank you, Man, you were so right.

DripsThe drip that drips down another dripDrips in Free Verse More Like This
Causes more drips as it drips with it
Making a river of drips that never stops dripping,
Always making more drips
As it drips drips into a puddle of drips
That flows into a stream of drips
That all started with one drip
And dripped down from the sky
Falling to the ground
Dripping down everything it touches
Never dying out
Always dripping more and more
Before all the drips stop dripping
They start splashing into the ocean of drips
That was created by just one single drip
Which now causes waves and ripples
Overflowing the rivers
Creating more waves in the sea of drips
Spreading more and more drips
All because of that first drip

There has to be a reason that stretches across the skies.
We all hate.
Hopefully we will never feel it..

You will always end up back where you started,
With your feet flat on the ground.

Shutting out all the light.

Lending my hand out to those who needed it.

It's becoming more noticeable.
The crack in my wall has spread.
Someone's knocking on my wall,
Breaking it down.
I can see now,
There are people who care.
My walls are crumbling,

Flitting, in and out
Their own reality
Where you see:
Having an ethereal death
In their surreal mind
As time runs around the corner,
Screaming for it all to stop,
And the unreality of its Self!
The one place where months are the seconds
By which we claim to live
And I can inscribe life on a ceiling!
Oh I can take the Moon
And have it dance with the Sun
As the world is being eaten by that Being
And making life
A place of fire-ridden dancing gods
A place where life is all that it seems
And is as fake as the tomorrow we wish to be
A place we all know exists but are too frail to reach.
The dreams of our youth
And lack thereof.
It screams to us all!
But most are scared to answer its call
Fear that is real in its state of nonbeing
But surfacing only when Time
Rears its ugly head and calls itself
And unfortunately real!
That is when we wake
We must wake to this!

Is always there?
Hidden in the depths
Is it the knowledge that We
Possess that same ability?
To hurt, to cause suffering
Is that what allows us to

For all to see

Begging for forgiveness
For the Sins he did not commit
Praying for a World
That never Loved him.

An Unsubstantial PleaI spend hours of indifferenceAn Unsubstantial Plea in Free Verse More Like This
In a world that ought be bliss
Not this barricade that blocks me
From that which I hold dearest
Silence that takes me
From my Life, my Love
The gap ought have been bridged
A voice calling out
So that All is known
Not this horrific unknown which I face
(The one that tears at me so)
I will beg, upon bended knees
For a simple word
I am tired of Sadness
I am tired of Pain
All due to the lack of speech
I need to know that everything is alright
And if it is not
At least what it is-
So I do beg
Please my Love!
Pour out to me all that you feel
Be it anything that you feel!
I simply want to know,
To share in these emotions
And not be left in a void
That is filled by terrible thoughts.
Worries of what is and is not,
Worries for nothing and everything
Just let me in
As I should have been long, long ago.
Expression Is MeaninglessI have been left,Expression Is Meaningless in Free Verse More Like This
Left to my own thoughts
I wouldn't suggest a World
In which you know nothing
Rather I would Hope
For a World
In which all is brought to Light
No hidden meanings in smiles
Just Truth and Honesty
A solid place to rest one's head.
In a World where I am never sure-footed
I simply want a constant
Is that too much to ask for?
It is getting better
Progress is slow,
But it is sure.
Time will heal these,
Deep, deep Wounds
I pray they shall never be forgotten
I want to hold them
To cherish them
To use them to see that
The past isn't always picture perfect
Problems exist and should be seen
Not ignored or brushed away
But challenged and-
And We should be thankful for Our trials
(They only make Us stronger)
They let Us face what lies ahead:
The time of most uncertainty
But a time,
(I will try)
To make Beautiful
And I will decide the fate
We will decide the fate

The words "I love you"
gets tossed around so much
that they lose their meaning,

Do not feel less precious,
less loved, my dear.

and I catch your heart throbbing,
maybe even weep
I shall whisper those words,

to see it shine through your eyes,
when your words echo mine.

it is so much more.
"I love you" doesn't seem fair,
they are just words, after all.
But I will say them secretly,
whispered in the dark.

The petals of the broken roses
scattered by the wind,
spread across the ground,
like stains of blood on starved grass.

Their words reduced to whispers.
The petals of the frozen roses
unable to melt in the sun
twirling towards the ground,

fingers stung by the thorns,
like the heart by the words
They scream no more,
Their words reduced to whispers.
The stories of beauty they once told,
torn apart, leaving only the stem,
snapped in two and covered
in sharp thorns.
The thorns of the broken roses,
sharp like the words untold.
