The Runaway PoetSpread the wings its time to flyThe Runaway Poet in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I swear I gave it an honest try
But this town just ain't for me
I long for adventure on the sea
or maybe somewhere far in space
really anywhere I could erase
These lessons carved out in scars
that hold me back like mental bars
When no place feels like home
I reside within the poem.
Hatchet ManRun, Run, as fast as you canHatchet Man in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm the crazy chop em up Hatchet Man
I found myself right outside your door
and you no clue what I got in store
Panic if you like, but it won't save you still
Cause I've got all night, I'm just here for the kill
Think you can run away from me now?
hahaha click POW!!
With one swing from my mace, and one swing from my hatchet
Your looking fucked up, but don't worry I got scars to match it
Still you try to run away, did you not learn the lesson
I'm the Hatchet Man, and this is my confession
You can run as fast and as far as you like
I will be juggling machetes right behind you on my Dirt bike
And when you think your safe and finally free
You'll wake up in the night, cuddling with me.........bwhahahahahahahaha
The Mark of SinWhat if every time we committed sinThe Mark of Sin in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It was marked upon our skin?
And to be naked meant they knew our past
I bet we all would want to undress last
Adults would have such a hard time disciplining their kid
when just under their shirt the truth they hid
And how many preachers would have to sit down
because can a marked up man make honest sound?
All the prisoners would hold a grudge
when put away by a marked up judge
Or would we never be able to throw stones again?
because we found out we're all the same in the end.
Symbols of Amor<3Symbols of Amor in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In one symbol you can say so much
Just one symbol can damage and crutch
For those you've used it for
For those you did Amor
To see you use it for another
I can't stand it I"m twisted lover
That symbol was once my soul
to receive it was my goal
Now that symbol rips me apart
It quickly eats and dissolves my heart
I did not think you had weapons left
I though my happiness was now free from your theft
But it seems you can murder me everyday
always in new torturous way
And just when I think I'm cured
my vision of reality is all but blurred
And I'm hoping for fairy-tales that can never come true
Tears quickly fall as I'm dreaming of you
I pray one thing each and every night
That this is the end, and my soul can take flight...
The First KissIt starts with the eyesThe First Kiss in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and I'm hypnotized
Truly I couldn't describe the feeling
but its soul healing
Its an intoxication I have never felt
and just like that all walls melt
The conversation flows with such ease
that happiness brings weak knees
It all hits harder than Ecstasy
and I just can't believe she's next to me
Her smile has got me hooked
and just like that my schedule is booked
My eyes tracing out her lips
attempting to read the movement of her hips
Still I have never made a move first
this nervousness is the worst
Yet those eyes paired off with smile
Have me melting here, if just for a while
and just like that a thousand thoughts turn to one
I'm smiling as I come undone
and lean in for the Kiss
which I must say felt like divine Bliss
This best part...I didn't awake
this wasn't a reality break
now this smile is stuck on my face
and my heart locked in quickened pace
This is a whole new high
she makes me never want to say goodbye
LimitlessStep up or Step downLimitless in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Back up or break ground
Push yourself to new limits
and never ever call it quits
Dare to touch another level
and Provoke even Devil
For Fear is just a word
Let it fly away like the bird
You can do this and so much more
You have a fire at your core
Your able to conquer all
School, work, and play ball
Just keep that smile on your face
and all else will fall in place
and if you ever feel worried
rushed, or a tad hurried
Know that I'm only a text away
there for a chance to brighten your day
Dead Wrong All AlongWe claimed that Humans had the food chain's topDead Wrong All Along in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
After today that thought shall stop
The beasts dropped from the sky
in just two hours millions die
They shot something that looked like the Aurora light
It blocked the sun and turned day to night
They moved in hunting packs
and on large cities made mass attacks
There are few of us who remained
each night another soul claimed
I think their messing with us now
in our head but I'm not sure how
Their intellect far surpasses our own
and every day their army has grown
I don't think we shall hold out much longer
What ever these demons are, their much stronger
The food chain's top is where we belong?
I fear we were dead wrong, all along...
The Letter LeftHi helloThe Letter Left in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
first of all I thought you should know
that nothing shines brighter than your smiles glow
Well, I guess I should start
with something a tad more from the heart
Yet I find myself tongue tied when we are apart
There's always a million and one things I wish I could say
but does it really matter at the end of the day
I'm just searching for the word that will make you wanna stay
Whether it be an hour, a minute, or just a second longer
cause when your standing next to me I feel a tad stronger
yet weaker in the knees
don't repeat this please
I tell you now how I truly feel
So you know these words aren't fiction, so you know their real
but here's the deal
My complete attention you have already stole
and the pace?....is in your control
Your loyalty...my only goal
I know your a girl with much on her plate
Yet for you I give a 5 star rate
So I'll wait
Till your daring enough for an adventure for two
till a day when its just me and you
and I can show you my words are true
Those Darker RoadsIts Darker Roads I travel when the World feels too BrightThose Darker Roads in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For it is within the Darkness that the Wrongs evolve to Right
Its one of those paths that many avoid
Its as if the complete truth only annoyed
Most people like when when they know what's around the next turn
But the journey loses mystery I've come to learn
Lost in the shadows is where I feel that longing embrace
By something ancient, a soul with no face
Its a connection so primal, so right
that it can only exist in the Darkness of Night
Yet, just as the Sun forces the Dawn
In the morning my Companion is gone...
My ConfessionI have only minutes to write this letterMy Confession in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I was hoping full confession would make me feel better
You see I've done a Dastardly deed
and I put it on Paper for all to read
It was not but months ago I found out my ex
had cheated on me in the form of sex
With shocking enlightenment, my heart about to burst
I concocted a plan, with the title of worst
Until tonight Revenge was just a word you thought you knew
You could look into my eyes and see how the hatred grew
Hatchets and blades, and Mask for masquerades
As the hacking begins, Morality Fades
Lines of right and wrong wash away
As I grab my knife and start to play
Chopping, I'm cropping without a picture
Making new designs on the body with light fixture
Committing mass sin
with no fear of FIN
I'm just the monster you made me
One that paid the ultimate fee
There coming for me now
their still wondering how
how the hell I made such a mess
I don't know I must confess....
Burning DualityOnce againBurning Duality in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am both blessed and cursed
For my heart has burned
And I'm afraid of the coming pain
For her I melt
To help her I knelt
And still it seems unclear
Thus my fear
Of her care I dream
Unbeknownst to her it seems
Yet my feelings at the core
I cannot reveal ever more
As limits my sanity has
And the destructive effect a rejection has
I am stuck between
Letting myself go slowly or risking a win
My FearI've seen my death so many timesMy Fear in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I've dreamt of my own funerals
What most people are afraid of in general
Is what I think of when my eyes are closed, every time
As I became so familiar with my own death
As I jumped, as I cut open my veins, as I was gone
I became used to see my death
And now I am afraid of myself alone
Death is not my biggest fear
I am my fear...

"Allright then... I guess this is good bye..."
I don't remember which one of us said it
But it still echoes in my sleep as is the tear in your eye
And your smile struck by the orange ray of light of the only lightpole lit
And I miss the long talks we had
So that we could be together, talking
Talking about anything, everything
Religion, politics, laws and even sexuality
Us, laying on that table, in our own reality
I remember the long talks we had.
I miss our times of awkward silence
But time itself did not leave us a chance
Though I admit I could have outdone myself
Especially for someone such as yourself
You're only 10 klicks away
Yet you sent me so far my way
And thinking of another man you are, I know
I guess you deserved better than a guy so low...

My DilemmaHow can Destiny be as violent,My Dilemma in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Hitting a man already at the bottom ?
How can Fate be so malevolent,
That it wants me to become a phantom ?
How can a small event
Remind me of my best moments
But use them as a powerful weapon
As a formidable threat to my person ?
Should I really go back where I met the one I once loved
And risk losing what is left of my heart
To what is either a dream or a real call back from the other part of said heart.
Why ? Why on all places on Earth choose where the girl of my dreams lived ?
Her mesmerizing eyes, her blazing red hair, her gentle smile
And maybe suffer even more to a point that might kill me.
Or the security of cowardice, constant sadness, loneliness on my private isle
And slowly, yet surely, suffer from the depression that is devouring me ?
Should I keep the promise I made nearly a year ago ?
Should I "simply" try to overcome this event and go ?
Should I take it as a sign of Fate ?
Or as some kind of joke of bad taste ?
My Dark MonsterAs the psychologist asks me to open myself,My Dark Monster in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And starts to dig its way,
Through my shell of lies and appearances hides a monster by itself.
She sees that I'm troubled and asks if I want to stop. She may.
Who would have known that a gentle guy like me
Would be constantly battling to keep containment
On the result of a life of laughter, of mocking or just ignorance which created a being so malevolent ?
Certainly not me.
Before I could defend against it,
Though I couldn't face it.
But the depression came in and drew my forces away,
And now I fear that it might get away.
If I only could let this monster go
But he would be the perfect killer due to his knowledge :
Firearm handling, military tactics, forensic sciences, even law...
That's wy I'm always on the edge.
So much anger that he would not know compassion,
So much hatred that he would make it bloody.
Because he never really knew love he wouldn't make any exceptions,
Because he only knew pain he'll only stop if killed, not willingly.
The ChasePeople keeps on runningThe Chase in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Running in their lives
Running for their lives
From a relentless foe we are all running
But, while everyone kept trying to leave
As they all wanted to live
I stopped to watch and give myself to the Scythe
From the one that ends all life
But even her, kept her distance from me
She didn't stop for me
She kept chasing the others, I guess I was of no interest
She instead stopped by my uncle's, he who was living has now been put to rest
I can guess how would go a conversation with the Lifebuster
"You're a monster !
- Aren't we all ?
Monsters in a whole ?"

Close is first aid
Closer is the blade
Stronger is the urge
But I want to fight it
I wanna get better
I have to get tougher

She will hide and wait
for morning to come crawling
for August's harshest breath

She will be your crippled arms
your womb left
underneath her window
the heart she could eat
whole and beating on a plate
your protests a cold dinner
left waiting at her door.

You bit your tongue

rise beneath my feet

You let me
roll your stockings down
and we jumped the fence
to steal strawberries
which I watched you eat
like a dying man's
and I knew I wanted
to be the taste
that made your cheeks flame
We watched the leaves fall,
flattening the trees
like too many moments
we could not remember
and it made me
count you on my fingers
and wonder why
I ever thought
I could hold you in my hand...

There was a certain charm

and how her spine lined up
with his bookcase.
(But he wondered why
bled into his flaws)
Still, he had to admit
lean across a table
with a grace
that bordered on
and he could learn to believe
just a dying art.

Next came his arms,
two delinquent acrobats -
first the right one
tightly sleeved and fitted,
waving like the last night
of the circus;
then the left -
its listless shrug
shriveled under the tissue paper.
His torso followed discreetly
as if wondering
where everybody went
and who would still be up
at this hour.
His head came last -
crated like apples at Christmas;
his eyebrows permanently surprised
upon his forehead
and his tongue
a final, flat declaration

Just take his hand

Our prayers for warmth and shelter blew in the wind around us
Searching for cover
We kissed under the blackened sky that covered the stars on which we relied
The empty air swallowed us whole
The freezing rain washed away our cries for mercy
Time stopped like the halt of perpetual motion
Slamming face first into the icy banks that surrounded us
We could hear the wolves calling to each other
In a moment of weakness I asked for forgiveness
And as the final gust of frozen wind blew me to the edge
The wolves attacked and god fell silent
The Face in the PatternsRemoved from the mind that I’ve come to adoreThe Face in the Patterns in Free Verse More Like This
The selfish desire I’ve come to love more
But in my delusion I look out beyond
Trees in the moonlight that stare back and haunt
Me, in my own visions and dreams of defeat
A plague that engulfs us and puts us to sleep
Raptured and stolen, in seconds I’m dead
Swimming with vultures that swarm in my head
The face in the tree that smiles right back
Just laughs as I drown in all that I lack
These voices and visions won’t ever let go
Disrupting the patterns until I explode
And just like a puzzle my pieces will fall
Don’t put me together, don’t help me at all
I’m walking this line inside of my head
Tracing the canyons of sanity’s edge
But I’ve walked here in darkness for so fucking long
It’s time that I jumped, let’s see where I fall

In this early morning moment we forget about our past, our future
We’ve disowned the actions of our fathers and mothers
Declared rejection of our ghosts that haunt us
In this moment, we can only appreciate the beauty of our world
The subliminal eclipse of mind and body as the sun rises from the dead
And lights up our late night blueprints
Where we fought to stay awake for what seemed like days
Transparent are our dreams and desires
Elusive in their hunt for madness
But in this early morning moment we finally realize
That our time in this landscape is temporary

There’s all this fire in our walls but it’s so hard to keep it lit
And in the morning there is nothing but heaven and its noise
So I’ll swing the witches hammer and it all will be destroyed
Now there’s nothing left of you, there’s nothing left at all
Tame the oceans? Save the hat tricks, autumn’s flame will bring the fall
Let me be the one to break you, let me show you how to bleed
As you fall into destruction, how could you ever save me?
The light floods through the lifeless and their anesthetic minds
This world has been forsaken and there’s nothing left to find
Footprints of a history that has gone denied, erased
I want to be a god again, I want to purge the human race

Among the ashes of your brothers and sisters
I dream black and white, though it fades in the pictures
History sleeps while we read what we’re left with
Memories and phantoms of names that regret this
War, but I’ve never seen such disappointment
As I have seen clearly in this bitter moment
The Narcissist And The BleederDo the colors ever really change? Or do we alter the way we look at them, therefore morphing their obscure existence into something that it’s not?The Narcissist And The Bleeder in Free Verse More Like This
Why do we shed the skin? To become a newer, better version of the bitter self-absorbed figure that we used to be? Or to become a hybrid, efficient in adaption and better ourselves for the good?
It’s a pursuit, a trial, a test, and we have to take the first step or it will never begin and we will never understand the changing of times and fashion.
What is fashion? An obsession, created to draw the attention of others away from themselves unto you? Or a statement about who you are?
The answer is the answer to the question, "Who will begin?"
Who will begin the search, who will take the first step? Who will bleed to stop the bleeding of others?
Your answer is in another question, "The Narcissist & The Bleeder, Who’s The Addict?"

Love LetterI watched as you deniedLove Letter in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
All sense of a love, defied
All that was and is about me
I never had you, so I’m lonely
From this you’d never stray
I remember it to this day
You were a lie, and I
Was just a casualty
I’m going down (I hope you feel this)
I hope you feel this now (I hope it stings you)
I can only pray for your suffering
I’m going down (I hope you feel this)
Suffer, somehow (I hope it stings you)
I can only bring your suffering
Letters I wrote dissolved
Scribbled in angst, completely absolved
In precious time
Your heart was mine
Though even though you’d say
“I’ll think of you every day”
You never could
I’m going down (I hope you feel this)
I hope you feel this now (I hope it stings you)
I can only pray for your suffering
I’m going down (I hope you feel this)

How could you… How could you burn me?

And this time
Your faith in me will fade out and die
It’s so cold in here… it’s so hot out there
Where have you been forever?
How could you burn me?
Where have you been forever?
How could you… How could you burn me?
A Spoken SoulI think we’re the same, you and IA Spoken Soul in Free Verse More Like This
Demons, delusions, pollution and fire
You told me it was eerie when I spoke my soul to you
How exactly I had reached inside your mind
Through all of the explaining I found myself twitching
A feeling I’ve known all too well
Anger swelled inside me, hatred raging deep within
Just waiting to release and beckon hell
I let you in on this, my darkest desire
Eradication brewing in the mist
Like a soul’s embrace I handed you my fire
Asking only that you keep it lit
How many times must we play this game?
How many wars until we find the end?
If only I could self-destruct like hand grenades
Would somebody understand me then?

Ending of my rejection of nature within the homeMy rejection of nature ended when,Ending of my rejection of nature within the home in Free Verse More Like This
The cricket joined me for a shower.
The spider checked the plumbing,
The daddy long legs fixed the tiling.
The death of my rejection continued as,
The ants popped into the living room.
They borrowed the wifi and used the phone,
The lounged on the couch, watching tv.
My rejection of nature stopped when,
The moths wanted to help cook.
They fluttered over our recipes,
Joined in switching on the extractor.
The finish of my rejection completed as,
The flies aided in the sweeping of the hallway.
They looked at the contents of the fridge,
And joined in the gaining of a snack.
I guess bugs don't like rejection from my habitat,
As I do not like it from theirs...
In which case, other creatures are now rejected from my home.
I suspect this rejection will be ended soon.

Should I cry?
Not a part,
But always to try.

When you see that person.
The giggle you get,
When joking with friends.
The grin and smile,
After a hug from your mum.
The cold fresh air,
Inhaled on a foggy morning.

all the secrets of the fairies,
how to reel in the little boys
how to build a family

and now i'm seventeen, and i vaguely wonder
how old he would be if he grew up like me.

Near if I ever make it back to you,
Greet you with the smile I kept for you.

Between us; clouds, wind, lightning,
thunder, ice and fire
Glad to tear myself apart
just for your eyes,
and sew you a cover from my skin
When love is big, and the lover is a moon,
do not tremble; one bird in winter nights
The tender sky touches all the scared wings
And cares for the wonderfully pale lilies
I walk on dry leaves, everyday
I create hope from that rainbow
I talk the language of trees
And I make a country from roses
Every day, I want to ride the sea,
every time they say no sailing allowed
Everyday, I build a home for our birds,
every time the floods take it away
I love you, until the day they put me out,
with eyes as wide as your skies
Until I disappear slowly, slowly
down the purple cliff
Until I feel you become some of me,
all of me
I love you

How can it be this bright and obscure?

Enjoy our revenge, and pretend we were brave
In the afterlife we tell God we tried to save
The lifeless love from the dark silent cave

But with our names carved on his headstone
We will shed tears; we will wear faces and grieve

Blind, yet seeking God's hand
When everything lost the little songs and died
And when they denied me life I cied
The scream in my throat went down and dried
Only then I could face your open skies
I begged inside for your name to hear my cries
Would you look at me, would you let me in
I keep on knocking ,the doors are shut within
I crave for peace or more gravity
To go down with this pride and vanity
Hear me out, soul is restless, trust is broken, but
I still believe, I know you are all I got
Tell him I died remembering him but, I forgot

Once again I fight to hold you near
But why should you try
When it's the same fire, the same denial
And my leaves went dry
Keep your pace, save every try
For I have weaved my shroud
And I have cut every single road

So, I have put on a sign
And the sign says, quote:

We will never be on that same boat
But, your melodious voices keep calling
And as deep as I get, yet I keep on falling
Heavy and merciless, your love rains
Stock in every thought, through all my veins
But I remember the eternal sign
Was put on my forehead on my shrine
And the sign says, quote:
DO NOT LOVE ME
And the wound will be only mine
I have lost every chance, every battle
Give up on me, for I'm just sand's castle
They gave me roses and a leading role
I have failed them all; I can't name them all
So, for every lesion not yet there
Read my sign and words I can never share
Read the sign that says, quote:

I close the eyes, I breathe, I rise and I'm there again

With eyes as big as the waves, and a heart where birds nest
There, where every butterfly takes colors from my palms
And the thirsty deers come drink from my spring
There where the world made sense
I am there, and the restless mind is home for peace
When you told me joy had features and a face, my face
I touch the sandy beach , and one heart is never enough
I eat from every daisy in the white field, I drink the morning dew
I cover my cold skin with sunlight and sunflowers petals
Every now and then, I let my head sink, I let the world sink
I go back where I can hug the sky and walk on foamy clouds
Where I can be a little bird, that small daisy in a white field

As I lie in front of the granite casing
Canonized by the sight of the one I love
Longing for his tender touch, to be in his reach again
I often smell the distinctive scent of his uniform
Surround myself with his garments
But only when he's not around
When he's around I must appear to be strong and stable
The constant questions of innocence and ignorance are impossible to answer
But he doesn't understand and I hope he never will
Life must continue and progress
I must now be his granite casing
To shield him from the bitterness and harshness of reality
But who will protect and support me?
Who is there to caress and look after me?
Who do I lean on and run to?
The granite casing can only do so much
But yet here I lie against it still
Even after all this time
Hoping to find strength
Elysian FieldsElysian fieldsElysian Fields in Free Verse More Like This
A brisk wind haunts the desolate temperamental sky.
One tree stands solitary against the turbulence.
They wander aimlessly among the white flowers.
Of course they avoided it, with its dark charcoal exterior,
And its multiple coarse rigid fingers.
All light seemed to gradually disintegrate the closer they got to it.
The shade of flowers change to a darker more sinister tone,
Sometimes changing to a ruby red colour.
They have no place, expressionless faces wince with frustration.
They are doomed to an eternity of bleakness,
Trapped they seek purpose, meaning.
But they almost made it
Feet stomp back and forth
'Were good enough to be up there'
Grey eyes fill with resentment.
A lifetime of nothingness is what they will have to endure.
A perpetual golden glow can be seen in the distance
And sometimes If they lean closer towards the ground.
The screams of the others can be heard along with the faint stench of burning.

I don't think they realised.
Realised at one stage there words would be studied in great detail,
They just wrote
Shakespeare, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Sylvia Plath
None of them knew that some day there work would be worshipped and criticised.
They couldn't have known their words would become timeless and immortal.
Now each word has a new meaning;
A meaning which may not have been initially intended.
Its amazing how an impact of a comma can make a difference,
Metaphors explored in new ways,
Similes expanded on and questioned.
Imagery perceived through different eyes
Some try to understand the authors mindset,
Others apply there own meaning and sentiment.
Writing is personal but not necessarily biographical,
Alternate personas can be adopted.
The picture painted may not exist
No matter how much evidence we gather.
We look for things that aren't actually evident,
Things we would like to be true.
But in truth there just simply
arranged words on a page.

Do you love my insides?
You know the parts you can’t see.
The parts that constructively divide,
All the places where you can’t be.
Do you love my internals?
You know all my unexploited crevices.
All the words I leave out of my journal.
The soft tissue areas that offer no benefits.
Do you love my fleshy, raw fillings?
You know the boring and bloody parts.
The features that are not made for kissing.
The invisible strokes that add to this body of art.
You see it’s my exterior that attracts you
But it’s my interior that made this possible.
So when my insecurities inadvertently attack you,
Don’t be so swift to class me as distrusting and illogical.
I need to know and to understand.
That you truly love me for who I am.
Even the parts of me you cannot see
Because those are the places where I want you to be.

Sleep is the only form of escapism,

Sitting at the side of bed gazing in to a mirror.
A hairy short being stares back at me,
His hands on a keyboard typing some sort of nonsense.
Movement can be seen in the background,
A foot emerges from underneath the covers.
Her angelic frame graces my bed.
She arises randomly to kiss me and returns to her slumber.

Failing is becoming an customary feeling.
Yet her kiss seems to distract me,

Her essence is impossible to resist.
This is not what she expected.
My feelings for her are undeniable.
She has chosen me as her worthy consort
But she questions whether I am reliable.
In this instance I am not swift with a retort.
Forced to reveal my fragility,
I postpone our wantonly gaze.
Cigarettes and floral scents invade the vicinity.
My mind is secured in a vacant daze.
My hand reaches for hers desperately,
Her hand wraps round my tactile index finger.
I whisper in her ear adulate words relentlessly.
A fountain descends of which I unintentionally triggered.
I embrace her entire anatomy,
My lips converge with her forehead.
She looks up at me emphatically.
She has finally been courted.

Only one unfortunate talent these days: breaking.
Imagining them vibrant and beating, but really cracked and broken,
Yearning for just one chance to have you listen to what wasn't spoken.
Anger and sadness would no longer be my endeavor,
If your voice was to play in mind forever.
Confessing all that she's been holding inside,
Without even listening, you seemed to decide.
You acted as if a miracle never took place,
I know because of that stupid look on your face.
Maybe to you those days didn't mean anything,
But to me, it was as if I was winter and along came my spring.
Swelled up and constricted with remorse,
Maybe we should have just let this love take its course.

Her soul held the pen and guided it across the paper.
Oh, what a picture this would be for you to see,
Watching her unleash and unlock all that was once holding her back.
She smiles at the silliness of her vision of a fantasy,
No longer saddened at the thought that it'll never come true.
The pages fill up; fear after fear, joy after joy is written down.,
Trying to figure out the complexities of this little thing they call life.
Maybe we are just victims of a dreamless Earth,
Raging demons just waiting in line to be tamed.
Once again, that coy smile crosses her pale face,
For she knows if we had all the answers, there would be no questions,
And with no questions, man would cease to breathe another breath.
Constantly testing the people in her life, not for the truth or her own gain,
But to see if they're human enough to be real, and not coat things over,
Painting everything over more than once with lies.

Today was a day that my walls tumbled down. Walls made of years of strength, years of grief. This isn't the first time. They are always falling down, only to be rebuilt again. Sadly to say, I'm kind of used to it.
So words I never got to say to you, words to be held back, are now flowing out. And I know I can't stop myself. I was only 4 when you passed, and now over 12 years later, it seems I have to come to finally realize the full extent of what you meant to me, of what I meant to you. Dad tells me you used to bounce me on your knee, and read to me until my brown and wearisome eyes shut. He used to peek through the doorway he said, to see you gazing down at me with a love that even he couldn't imagine. In that one moment, he knew he had found someone that was even more than his soulmate.
I just wish I could have been there for those moments we laughed, moments when you loved me. I was there,

Pretending there's no such thing as goodbyes.
We see and we breathe, hand in hand.
No need to talk, for eachother, we already understand.
We sit so long, your eyes become mine.
And darling, we've even stopped time.
But I know that we must part.
And along with you, you'll take my heart.
Forever I'll remember that day with skies so blue
And that where the light lies......is in you.

My innocence is your prisoner.

So we walked our seperate ways,
Because we all know it's easier to

And I know it's just the right time to fly away.

And love is sweet.
So, take my hand,
In heaven, we'll meet.
Skies and clouds,
And mother, so dear.
Angels in crowds
And bells we'll hear.
Rising to God,
With a pair of wings.
Of luster and laud
The angels will sing.
The worries of earth
Will be no more.
A day of brith
Is surely in store.
But for now
On earth I'll dream.
Of heaven I vow
To forever ream.
