The bright lights blazing down
And the buzz of the crowd
Energy flowing through me
I step onto the rink,
Skate my routine,
I'll be fire on ice tonight.
Skating, hearing the crowd roaring,
Finishing with a wave
And skating off to hear the scores.
Stepping up to the podium
Standing tall and proud
As the gold medal is placed around my neck.
Two Years LaterShe asked him gently, “Do you love me?”More Like This
In his long silence, she found closure,
And left her love under a willow tree.
Who Needs Friends?Dear Loneliness,More Like This
Will you be my friend?
Because I seem to just be a trend,
That the world has put to bed.
Will you make me smile?
Because Happiness has run a mile,
Just like everything else I need.
Will you help me hope?
Because Optimism is a slippery slope,
When you've seen the world.
Will you make me care?
Because I hate Interest's flare,
In a place too dull for life.
Will you make me content?
Because you're the one that'll prevent,
That which I long for.
Will you make me feel alive?
Because I don't even want to survive,
In a world that cares too much.
Will you make me a saint?
Because I don't deserve a heavenly taint,
Due to the sinner that I have become.
Will you make me your sob-story?
Because you want all of the pride and glory,
Of surviving where your buddy fell.

Pain and SorrowMy days are bright and my nights are lonelyMore Like This
I deal with the pain I suffer with as a daily part of my life
What I deal with can be painful or joyous
It just depends on the situation
But lately pain has been my life and I don’t like it any more
But since when did anyone like pain
But lately my life has been full of pain and sorrow
I just want it to stop even though I know it won’t
All I know is that I’m full of pain and mostly dead
Things start to get better than they decide to go back to hell
It hurts more than people can imagine
And few people understand what this pain is
And fewer have gone through it again and again
Those who have will understand this more than any other
For it is painful and tormenting and during this
We may cause others pain when we don’t want them to feel any at all
But know this about us
We care more than most people would
The Death of my HeartWe all love and are lovedMore Like This
We enjoy happy relationships
And happier memories with someone special to us
But when that special someone leaves us
What is it that happens to us?
Do we hide from everyone?
Do we avoid our friends?
Do we just disappear?
It’s always different from person to person
But when we lost that person
Who we cared so much for
We all feel hurt
We all feel betrayed
We all lose something of ourselves
A small part of us dies
A small part
But that small part that dies
Has such a large effect
Our heart slowly starts to die as well
After so many painful losses
Is our heart even alive anymore?
Do we even still have a heart?
Love is painful
And so is life
Most associate love with
Joy and happiness
Not pain and sorrow
But at the end when one person breaks it off
And the other person still loves them
We feel immense pain and sorrow
We become a walking shell
Thinking when we need to
But not really living
Just trying to cope
Trying to survive
Trying to move forward
