This is Me, BeggingIf I could play guitar
I’d write you a song.
If I could run that far
Then I’d run all night long.
But I’m no good at that
So you’ll have to settle for this.
What is this?
It's a plea
Please come home
I'm all alone
And nobody understands.
I don't want you to R.I.P.
I want you here with me
But I'm not God
And He hates me
So, for now,
I guess it's R.I.P.

When will the reaper stop calling?
Did I do something wrong?

To suffer for this long.

And it's not like you did
But I never got to ask why
I just ran and hid.
'Honesty is the best policy'
That's what they say
But I doubt they know truth at all,
Being who they are today.
If I could, I'd wish it away
But I can't
So I'm alone today;
Meant to die here this way.

Would it still be a sin?

But turned you away
Would you still come in?
If I sliced my skin

Would it still be wrong?
If I acted all brave
But couldn't face it
Would I still be strong?
If I tied my noose
Around a tree's open arms
Would it be an embrace?
If I left tonight
And begged you stay
Would you still give chase?
If I committed sin
But hurt nobody
Would I be welcome above?
If I do something you hate
But only for your good
Could it still be true love?

The ones you forgot about.
So don't be too surprised when we
Start to scream and shout.
We are the living, the dying

But you'll know who we are when we
Run this goddamn town.
We are the corpses, the maggots
The ones you all despise.
But you'll be the ones scared when we
Expose all your lies.
We are the hunted, the lost
The ones you all spurn.
But you'll cry for our help when we
Leave you all to burn.
We are the losers, the winners
The ones that you deny.
But you'll be the ones damned when we
Hear the angels cry.
Chained and ShamedNobody gets it.Chained and Shamed in Free Verse More Like This
I don’t want saving,
I don’t want ”friends”;
I just want all ends
To be met in red.
I hate how plain my skin is,
How it should be painted;
I’m the addiction’s harlot,
I do as it must dictate
And when it tells me to seal my bloody fate;
I bloody well will.
I’m too full of blood,
I need to let some out.
But know this isn’t a shout
This is me coping
With how I’m hoping
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,
It doing as I want
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.

About HateWhen hate is a fire, then it's burning cold.About Hate in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
All consuming, raging uncontrolled.
Hot tears are burning in eyes and on skin,
Unable to calm the storm within.
The consumptive flame turns from red to white.
Burns down borders between wrong and right,
Disoriented reason leads astray.
Lined with ash and debris is the way.
Beneath the heat of raging fire is ice,
For firstly the cold did heat entice.
When freezing the heart in its icy grip.
The shell won't melt, won't break or rip.
Frightful MeetingShe ran into the woods aloneFrightful Meeting in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Until she reached an ancient stone
A forgotten giant's ashen bone
Overgrown by moss and firs
Where there was the love of hers
But not joy guided her today
Not happiness showed her the way
As rain fell from a sky led gray
Saltwater ran down her face
When she reached their meeting place
Adorned with a ruby red stain
A body awaited her slain
Causing such unbearable pain
Whom she'd given her heart to
Now had his own cut in two
Jelousy, the bitter passion
This cruel scenery did fashion
Where he ended up as ashen
and cold as the stone and sky
Made the loved girl want to die

While wond'ring "Where are the angels all?"
It's so easy to push them over the edge
By demanding and taking it all, yet
We never give, never repay the debt
Tell me, what excuse do we have to allege?
Oh, leeches we are, vampires feeding
On angels' hearts, don't see they're needing
Kind words once in a while, arms to hold them, too
Why do we not tell them they are precious
Instead we're treating them so malicious-

Obituary Of A FriendshipAfter all this time we finally meet again.Obituary Of A Friendship in Free Verse More Like This
I'm excited to hear how you've been, my friend.
But when you start to talk I start to abstain.
While I smile, secretly I wish for this to end.
We're thrown back into a time that ended long ago.
What we had in common does not matter anymore.
Again you want a shoulder so you can have a good cry.
I am diplomatic though I sense this friendship does die.
About all the tragedies that happend to you I shall know
While I cannot tell you why my smile becomes so sore.
I am really sorry that things have come to this.
We used to be good friends but we both have changed.
I treasure what we had, but you I won't miss,
Once we parted ways and the goodbyes are exchanged.
We've grown apart and the distance between us is vast.
You talk so much and more yet still nothing has been said.
The conversation runs dry, as it dies we start to brag
About what we achieved, but that's just hoisting the white flag.
There is no sense in trying to keep alive what's dead.

Where we're painted in silver light
Let us dance through the fire

And samba brings us throu the rain
Let us dance until the end
Forever I'll hold your hand
The only rythm that we need
is your steady heart beat
The songs of love only we hear
Tenderly in each others ear
And we both now it is true
As we both whisper, "I love you."
Warm Me"The world is big and I am small,Warm Me in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am short and the world is tall.
The world is cruel and I am hurt,
The world is cold and full of dirt."
The melody of a children's song
Echoed through the empty floor
When the shadow of a former self
Marched towards that certain door.
Behind that door there was a short shelf,
Drawers unlocked by a key
Agile fingers had stolen before.
The lighter was found with glee.
"The world is big and I am small,
The world is too deaf for my call.
The world is cruel and turned away,
The world is cold and has to pay!"
Like ice the darkened walls did glisten
On the floor there was a lake.
The last canister soon was empty
And the pale hand did not shake.
With a soft hiss the flame's brought to life.
It stretched and began to dance.
A hand tried touching it tenderly
Staring eyes entered a trance.
"The world is big and I was small,
It never did love me at all.
But with you the tables will turn!
But with you my friend, it will burn!"

But I see you've lost you're love for me,
And gave it to someone else.
Now I realize what I did was wrong,
But the worst part is I did love you,
I do love you... And I don't know what to do.

One child had skipped through the village, singing,
And soon, to the tune the church bells were ringing.
Such a catchy tune it was hard to not hum,

We are the down-trodden and angry masses,
Our tune is carried by every man that passes.
We are the oppressed masters of the future,
We shall not be quietly pushed to the corner!
It all began with a simple child's song,
And now the angry protest has begun.
It all began with a naive little lover,
And now they are the mightiest fighter!

But this has happened enough to me,
It's all everyone's been doing recently.
So here I lie, discarded, fearing to stand up,
Because what waits just isn't worth getting up.
Thrown away and lying in a puddle of mud and blood,
All the other times I got up, and wiped off the mud.
But this time, as I lie here, broken and bloody,
I don't want to get up, I want to be a dead body.
I know getting up is inevitable, because I will never give in,
But I really just want to give up and say that "I'm done in."

No one cares about you, or why you act so proud.
No one knows who you are, you're just another face,
You could just disappear without a trace.
The blood red sky in your mind's eye,
It's always there but you don't know why.
You're just a part of a bigger whole,
And your heart is as black as coal.
You play dress-up with your top hat and cane,
But you can take it off and disappear again.
You're never noticed no matter what you wear,
It's a source of their contempt and your despair.
You could just disappear right now,
No matter who what when where why or how.

To make sure it's still real.
I'm going to cry for all I've lost,
And you can't stop me.
These tears I cry at my cost,
For once will flow freely.

It was a hot, dry day in the City. Staying out of the main streets as much as he was able, young Gerard made his way through the dusty, litter strewn back streets of Pheonix, Arizona, trying to find somewhere to shelter from the cold of the night and the fast approaching dust storm. Life was miserable for the young man, living hand to mouth in the poorer parts where he didn't stand out so badly from everyone else. Little did Gerard kn

a vision of loveliness before my eyes.
A heart melting beauty, of radiance grand,
the handsomest face in the whole of the land.
Unable to tear my gaze from this sight,
attraction was rearing with all of it's might.
As if feeling my gaze, in my direction he looked,
our glances meeting, that was it, I'm hooked.
Embarrassed and shy, I went out to the grounds,
a short while later, and I had been found.
Taking my hand, and returning inside,
onto the dance floor, he was my guide.
Shaking with nerves, and o'er come with awe,
on my feet I kept my gaze, to the floor.
A gentle hand under my chin changed all that,
the gentlest expression made my heart his mat.
With brown eyes like molten chocolate, so sweet,
that one dance swept me cleanly right off my feet.
Whispered conversation, like a secret untold,
shivered right through me, though I wasn't cold.

either way you still look hot.
Upward pointing, or over face,
still you have a certain grace.
Awkward knees, well, not to me,
sexy, you will always be.
Bashful, shy and self aware,
still in your place you're there.
Lost in music, rocking on bass,
concentration on your face.
Before with glasses, now without,
still you make my poor heart shout.
Staying in the background, mostly,
pale enough to seem ghostly.
Dreamily, on fender you play,
forever in my heart you'll stay.
Brilliant bassist that you are,
one of the hottest, yet by far.
Troubles you've defeated in the past,
admiration for that will last.
Shy we know that you truly are,
still much loved, both near and far.
Grateful for your magic touch,
we love you so very much.

New Attractions At The Old Shop.I was nearing home, after work one day, when I spied a removal van outside the door to the residential part of the vacant shop in the village where I lived. It looked like they were only two women there, so I wandered over to see if I could help them get the rest of their things in before dark.

You fought homophobia with Frerard, right,

Your language is sometimes colourful and ripe,
some of your detractors do nothing but gripe.
Your fans in their hundreds don't listen to it,
viewing it as nothing but oral shit.

still in the fans you inspire lust.
The troubles you concured to get where you are,
have inspired people both near and far.

Or when a twin sized bed
