When I'm standing on the edge,
And this is how I lie,
When I'm screaming "I'm fine"
This is how it looks,
When I lose myself,
Ignored the words you said,
Stepping closer to the end,
Today I disappear,
As I throw myself away,
This is how hurts,
When I pretend I feel no pain,
No longer have you,
To breathe life into me,
Deeper into my despair,
Closer and closer to the ground,
Heart beat fading,
This what I chose,
When it was left up to me,
This is how I break,
When I finally hit the ground.

And now for my sweet revenge,
I shall make you feel exactly the same,
With my little voodoo doll,
Nothing shall go wrong.

I know why they hate me,
I'm fat and repulsive,
Crazy and depressant,
But these girls who hit me,
They save me, as without them,
I would sink into my own nightmares.

Laid face down in the dirt,

It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.

Sniper stood watch, just outside the old travel agency building. Aside from somehow withstanding the rest of the block collapsing around it, the shop was impressive for having reasonably preserved brochures. Captain and Pilot would often amuse themselves by planning trips to countries that no longer existed, and Engineer would gather what they discarded for kindling. Whenever Sniper grew sufficiently bored, he'd call out with something he thought was witty.
It was a bit like that, being on watch; you'd either say something funny and die knowing your sense of humour was too good for this world,

Like having a heart just a little smaller than being complete.
Maybe I'm just wondering how important I am to you,
How true your beautiful words are,
How I know with such a certainty,
That you are the reason for all my lingering smiles.

The world seems to waver at its brink of life.
Still nothing seems close to describing this moment of us together,

But like the millions of love stories left unread,
It's as beautiful as any love could be tonight.
Because I Need YouI learned to forgive when I heard you sang in your lovely voice,Because I Need You in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Leaving behind feelings of an undying want in me like the way you said I told you so.
And it was in high school when you first gave me that look,
Forever sealing my belief in the absolute beauty of a real smile.
I still remember the way you cried with your heart years later in sweet love,
And I wondered if you knew that I cared about you beyond your wildest dreams.
A fragile moment of eternity incomplete,
When a touch is all we need to know and understand each other so well.
It was thanksgiving when I woke up to rippling translucent waves of the ocean nearby,
A warm glo

I can only think of how much I wish I were in your arms,
Commenting on your body with my lips,
Kissing you blindly with my eyes closed,
All in perfect understanding of this thing called love.
I used to be afraid of the light in the dark,
Your lips on my arms.
The need rising constantly in my chest,
Little tells when you are near.
Now your voice feels like wind on my heart,
Your smiles sunlight to my skin,
Your promises dancing kisses by my ears,
But your love is the only one I will ever need.
A fairy tale without liesWhen I used to think of you,A fairy tale without lies in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I'd look at that picture of you with that fairy tale smile,
The puffiness underneath your eyes,
A smoldering feature beneath the longing pain coloring the background of my mind.
So my first impression of you was maybe a bit off,
As are my denials,
Of our heart connection,
And that maybe someday I will find you the one to see in love.
People talk about all the things in life to go back to.
I only think of you to hold on to.
And every touch of your love sends warmth in a way,
Where I could almost smell a fairy tale without lies.

I dare you.
I want to feel your heart beat,
I want you to feel mine too.
It binds us close together,
And I believe that this is where you want to be.
Trust me, I know that this won't last forever,
You've made that very clear.
One day I know you're gonna leave me,
Turn away and never look back.
But am I wrong, tell me am I wrong
To want to spend tonight with you?
Let's just sit back and enjoy being together,
Before the sun comes up and the sky turns blue.
Is there any chance that I could make you stay,
Any way you wouldn't leave?
Maybe you could just hold me for a little while.
Tie a String Around MeI can feel your memory slowly taking over me,Tie a String Around Me in Free Verse More Like This
Pulling me backwards every time I try to move on.
I wish that you could just let me go,
So that way I can actually take more than three steps a day.
It's not even one step forward, two steps back,
Because you always pull me in a different direction.
I can never guess where you are going to show up next;
You just appear and take me back,
Back to the times when we were safe,
Hidden away in our own little escape.
We never gave any thought to the fact that it might one day be over,
Never believed that we would ever be torn apart.
I just sat back, let the feeling of your strong arms just fa

Just two months earlier?
What if I had let him break me,
And let you fix me?
What if we had tried
A couple months before we did?
(Would we have made it?)
Would you still have lied?
Would I maybe not feel
So much like dying inside?
Who knows? Maybe that wouldn't be her name on that line,
Next to yours instead of mine.
What if we had taken the jump,
Back when we both strong enough to fly?
We could have held ourselves up,
Instead of slowly crashing back to the ground.
Please, let's at least pretend I'm right.
I never wanted to feel this way,
I never wanted to be in this state of mind.

These scars bear those four years of hurt,

Every time that razor blade presses down,
a little more of her hurt springs out.
So many scars, so much hurt (The pain seems almost unbearable).
Tender to the touch,
Ugly to the eye,
she fights to keep them covered
Never wearing, never sharing
the source of her pain.
His hand brushes against her wrist,
touching each and every scar.
His eyes show pain, they show sadness,
he is trying desperately to save her.
The very touch of his hands
starts to put the skin back in its place,

I am sitting in the light,

In my dreams I can feel his arms around me

Making me feel okay.
The strength of his invisible embrace surrounds me,
warms me, and consumes me
So that for a moment,
I believe that I can really feel him here.
The air around me

The ones who tried to leave a legacy,
They have fought hard,
but it wasn't enough for recognition.
So they lie in the ground,
graves unmarked and forgotten,
Covered with leaves, vines
falling down from trees, rising high next to
bones buried deep and weathered with age,
long ignored in the dust.
These people gave their lives
to spend an eternity
trapped and forgotten in the ground.
Overshadowed by people
Who spent all their time,
bragging and overcompensating
for cowardly deeds.
They make their fame taking the glories of those forgotten masses

I see my escape,

My hands stretch as far as they can go,
But I am held back by the bars.
They hang, shining,
full of promise, waiting for me to grab them.
I try as hard as I can,
my hands still fall short of their goal.
Frustration is slowly building
as I try again and again to reach my escape.
I don't think I will ever be free;
they just hang those keys there to torture me.
They know how much I will want to get them,

This thoughtful tale begins again.
It all starts with the match.
That's all it takes for the fire to catch.
The fire then spreads throughout the room,
And only one can begin to feel their doom.
What began as a simmer and grew to a flare
Will certainly show her how much he cares.
The flames leap; the flames roar.
The fire so menacingly is blocking the door.
There is no escape; she will soon burn.
This delusional girl! She'll never learn.
He strikes her once, and then twice more,
Going back on exactly what he swore.
After what seems like hours and hours of continuous burning,

My mask runs down my face.
I am broken and exposed to the world.
My heart beats are quiet.
There isn't a single sound.
My world is crumbling in silence;
Not even a whisper of remorse.
Shards of glass are scattered
About my broken room,
A place that was once my safe haven
Is now crushed along with my peace.
My muse, my love, my soul,
Taken away from me so suddenly.
I am snapping under the weight
Of the broken, shattered remains.

Whisper their sweet tidings,
You flee teasingly from my fingers
And go deep into hiding.
My heart searches for you,
But you are nowhere to be found.
Lost away in my ever after

Silence fills my once treasured dreams of you and I.
They tease me quite rudely at the back of my mind.
I fight them most desperately
Like the sailor fights the tide.
Your memory suffocates me,
For I am drowning in the emptiness of your shell.
You are no longer with me
In this life that is a hell.
