I Am Not ThemI've got the scars on my skin,
Reminding what I've done,
Who I've been;
Never letting me forget
Everything that I regret
And making sure I know
That I am not Them.
When the moon is way up high,
And the world is in a dream,
I will cry
For all of the death
Within my breath
Whispering into my ear
That I am not Them.
They make me Their shallow joke,
The things They say and do,
Making me choke;
World wants me dead
I'm sick in the head
All because of the fact
That I am not Them.
If I could transform myself,
Make me rich in beauty,
'Cos that's their wealth
I'd rather just die
I want to remain I
Proud of all I am and
That I am not Them.
I think I pity all of the liars,
The way They act like
Sirs and sires.
They aren't truly alive
Just a drone in a hive
Making me thankful
That I am not Them.
I Am AddictionI’m past it,I Am Addiction in Free Verse More Like This
Don’t need it,
Don’t want it,
But what am I without it?
It’s still part of me,
Tattooed for all to see;
Little lines of pain,
Worming into my brain.
My only friend,
Will be my sweet end.
I need definition,
What makes me myself?
I want to be put on a shelf;
Just define me by my actions,
My scars, my abstractions.
Show me who I am,
Who you want me to be,
My old comfort,
My old joy,
Red itching scratch,
And the sentiment I attach,
Dragging me down
And making me fly;
Making me laugh
And making me cry.
Is it addiction?
Is it compulsion?
Is it wrong?
I know it’s not right,
But if I ended it tonight,
Would it really matter?
I’ll never be past it,
Always need it,
Always want it,
Because what am I without it?

You've saved my live more than twice,

And you're part of most of mine,
So just please give me a sign

You always made me smile;
When I longed for my death,
So I guess I owe you my every breath
For when you were the only one left.
You made me who I am now,
I think you're my very best friend,
But the messages you're starting to send;
Could this be the end?
Or the beginning of something I just can't comprehend?

I may not be kind,

The rise and the fall.

I lie on the floor and cry, cry for you.
I want the light but you're the dark,
I'm the owl but I was born a lark,
I'm just some paradox, dead and stark;
Lying on the floor and crying, crying in the dark.
I fell for a lie too good to be true,
That's the story;
That's me and you.
I want to be angry,
Really I do;
But to hate you is to hate us,
And together we will fall.
I can't fall again,
Break my bones,
I can't not do this again,
Lift my hopes,
But to fly is to fall,
When you're my wings
I know I will fall.
But I can't not try at all.
I don't want you;

Nobody’ll care when I go.
Cutting isn’t for attention;
It’s for a brief suspension
Of everything else.
It is mine and I’m its,

And I its slave
Until there’s nothing left to save.
I don’t fear death
Half as much as I do breath.
Because I’d be lying
If I said dying
Wasn’t on my list of things to do today.

He Never StoppedSomeone once told me that depression was like a dense, dark raincloud that hung over you and you couldn't escape from it as hard as you might try. I don't think I ever really understood because I have spent so many years running and hiding from that cloud. I finally understand now.

It's Okay To Be Okay Maybe it's because nobody told me it was okay, to be alone, to be just me. Maybe it's because I never stopped hurting, and I never got the chance to go numb. Maybe it's because I don't have a friend or a hand to hold out here in the middle of falling down. Maybe that is what this life is for, to sit here with my broken heart and just watch it go by.

Saltwater disguises the crying.
And I can make you believe,
that I am not heartbroken.
Not that it matters.

Now I’ve found a new drug

All I can think about is the high, and the pain.
It hurts so bad. It hurts just enough.
It hurts enough to make him disappear.
And so I’ll ride this high as long as he is gone.
And I will ride it until it kills me.

I can't allow him into my reality.
I know I could love him, most certainly.
But we all know what happens...

Shes DangerousA beautiful girl, a sight to behold.Shes Dangerous in Free Verse More Like This
An innocent smile, a heart of gold.
So begins the story, each time it is told.
The ending leaving you, bitter and cold.
Your “soulmate” leads you into her bed.
That’s how she traps you, with lovely legs spread.
Desire and lust dominate your head.
Spellbound you agree to whatever is said.
Her manipulations are a mastered art.
As her trusting victim, you play the part.
She promises to love you with all her heart.
And with sick satisfaction she tears you apart.
From this trance you eventually awake.
That’s when you discover, trust is a mistake.
Your wonderful woman was a scheming snake.
Blinding you with her poison and taking all she could take.
You’re left alone, bitten and broke.
All you had, all you believed, all up in smoke.
Secretly wishing, you had never woke.
She made you love her, and her love was a joke.

Enough to heal
what all of the glue and tape in the world couldn't hold together.
Broken trust, empty promises, disappointment, pain.
All washed away with a smile.
And I am bewildered.
Standing here dumbfounded in disbelief.
Crushed and suffocating,
suddenly I could breathe again.
As you unexpectedly lifted the world from my chest
and filled me with peace.
Free now to focus on the pain that matters
and not the pain from the false hopes
fed to me by lying lips.
People come and go
and when they go they leave behind bitter betrayal.
But you are nothing like anyone I've ever known.
Even nightmares disappear as you enter them
and turn them to amazing dreams.
And with those dreams flowing through my sleeping mind,
I wake up each morning finally unafraid.

We fake our emotions, pretend we don't care
But sometimes this life is more than we can bare
I don't want to be fake, I want to be real
I don't want to pretend, I want to say how I feel
But I want to be happy, not sad anymore
I want a reason to smile, something to live for
I don't want to live in this masquerade
or be a puppet that society's made
If I'm sad, that's fine, If I'm happy thats great,
But I want to be myself before its too late

You say you adore me, but it feels like cancer,
To perform this childish charade every disaster.
Close shut the door and wave goodbye,
Look through echoes of grimy glass in regret,
To see a forlorn face but you don't know why?
Where times spent in trust you can never forget,
From chords of a pitiful piano that sing then cry.
Something borrowed, something blue,
Just give me one good honest reason,
Why I should give a damn about you?
You say you love me, but it feels like treason,
To play this churlish charade every season.
Open wide the curtains and say farewell,
Breathe through sighs of arid air in despair,
To see a sullen survivor but you sent him to hell.
Where memories lost in merit you say aren't fair,
From vocals of a guilty guitar that whisper then yell.
You take away my heart of sanity,
To pour in your seeds of vanity,
Now all I have left is my mind of insanity.

Waking up to a morgue of maggots and flies.

Horde of rats cluster in sands beside me,
Gnawing matter from muscle and mind.
Is this a fate of fear I hear before I flee?
A voiceless vortex that makes white pain sigh,
Waking up to a sanctum of spiders and lice.

I can hear it even after my fears start creeping.
I hurt when you're still praying over a decaying me,

Nor one so vile as she scars my aura in fire.
Beauty stood up on that scarlet skin,
Her locks were rouge with quiet rain,
And then she turned and walked on sin.
Sin; a sordid spirit who knew no lover true,
Nor one in clue as she saves me from my pain.
Paradigm Of The Lost DivineTake my pitiful mind to a better place,Paradigm Of The Lost Divine in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So I can see the brightest stars shine,
In that abysmal hope called space.
To reach out and touch a forbidden face,
Is the greatest gift anyone could find.
For I have witnessed in vast wonder,
The eternity before this epic I ponder,
Where no creature would consider his death.
But who am I to declare what is up or down?
Nothing is the name of hell in which I drown.
Take my woeful heart to a lesser worth,
So I can hear the darkest sighs scream,
In that dismal void called birth.
That genesis of so mysterious a mirth,
Is the coldest curse anyone could dream.
For I have listened to past laughter,
The velocity while this verse I slaughter,
Where no beast would believe his wrath.
But who am I to state what is rock or sand?
Solitude is the sign where hell is found.
Take my stressful body to a wilder strife,
So I can feel the mildest souls shiver,
In that baptismal fire called life.
To burn in a flame so riotous and rife,
Is the luckiest lie anyone could
The Tears Of The EarthWhat would you do if the world stopped,The Tears Of The Earth in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Spinning and swirling to a systematic halt?
Would you climb to a mountain majestically high,
Raise your eyes up to the finite electric universe,
And reflect on the redemption of a death so diverse.
Veins line the black with faults of blood,
And I can hear the crazed howls of horror,
Erupt up from the centre of an empty Earth.
Screams swell to scorch the skies above me,
Where sunlight fades to freeze the faces I see.
What would you do if the world finished,
Falling and frolicking to a fatalistic end?
Would you swim to a sea seductively low,
Embrace your demise in that endless dark space,
And regret on the reclamation of a pitiless place.
Bones cover the gray with scars of greed,
And I can hear the fazed sighs of sorrow,
Burst forth from the core of an eccentric Earth.
Calls condemn to curse the cries around me,
Where twilight dies to damn the dead I free.
True LoveI realized tonight that I had given you my heart.True Love in Free Verse More Like This
I sat in solitude in the dark,
Tears streaming down my cheeks,
And as a simple thought crossed my mind,
A small smile spread across my lips.
I may have given you a piece of my heart,
But as long as I knew I wasn't alone,
My heart could patch itself back together,
And while you have that piece of my heart,
And while I allow myself to leave some love for you,
I'm just glad I ever got to know you,
And that I got to find out what True Love is.

"What do you think'll happen to us, in the future?" Dan asks.
I look up at the darkened skies above Manchester. It seems every star is out tonight. "I don't know," I say. "Who knows, maybe we'll get married and have kids."
Dan laughs. "Phil I don't think that's physically-"
"I know! We can adopt, you know that." I nudge his arm slightly. Looking at him, I notice the way the shining stars bring out his stunning brown eyes.
We sit on the roof of our house. We upgraded from our flat about six months ago, purposely choosing a house which was isolated and had roof access.
"Who'd have thought," Dan says almost to himself, "we would end up like this."
"The fans?" I joke.
Dan laughs again, this time not at my expense. "Yeah, they are kinky."
I move closer to him so that we are touching, and we lock hands. I lean my head on his shouder and that's the way we sit for a while.
"See those stars up there?" Dan whispers.
"They're the great kings of the past staring down at us."
