WhenWhen everything falls apart,More Like This
when everything seems to change abruptly,
when you feel your going to fall,
when theres nothing left for you to do,
when nothing seems to help,
when nothing is ever enough,
when you feel you can't do anything right,
when theres always something wrong
because you couldn't stop the way you feel,
when life ends,
when life begins,
When the window is your only friend,
when life is painful to live,
when death is hard to endure,
when you need a shoulder to cry to,
when you feel as if its weak to cry,
when the feeling never fails to let you down,
when you feel your even lower than the ground,
when it take nothing to decide to die,
when it feels as if one else would cry.
I fell for you, these tears were from when.

Your star youve kept
Deep with in you
The heart have I swept
And for so long my darling, have you become mine
Never never dear were I thine
With in me hold truth to myself again.
And sorry who werent the men
The man who holds me now so dear
And I love with out careless fear
Never did I wake to you darling
Never did I cry to you darling
But about you
And because of you... But never for
The never key locked the door
Because of my games because of my claims
I could never love another more then what I cherish most
And because I loved you worse the memory remains a curse
What Ive done
How I lead
I should being dieing
I should be dead
But because of you, Im cherished instead
I argue sometimes about what Ive done.
I could never like her, win,
You were never father to my son
But again I say
And further more I prey
To be loved by you
Was a horrible thing to make you do.
Your fading starI could always cry for youMore Like This
Never could I run from you
Once I ran to you
And then I faded from you
A star of hope
And a light of so many
Could I ever forget?
You made me
To forget would be to lie
To let go,
For hours on end
The branches did bend
Not for so long that the trunk be came un-strong
Never again I plea
For the game I play is only a sin
To be with you, is never truth..
But I found mine
And I was thine

falling into place
the epitome of grace,
a dream, I have fully realized.
there are only shades of grey,
but they will all see black and white.
we'll never know if we never try -
the chance will never come, I'm afraid;
I pray to face the light.
the last goodbyeAs I hold the knife to my throatMore Like This
I look back at my life
I think about my failures
I realize I havent accomplished anything
I realize that my whole has been
One big failure after another
As I slide the knife across my throat
And feel the life drain out of me
I close my eyes and smile
I felt a gentle breeze caress my cheeks
And I heard an angelic voice call my name
And say you need not shed
Anymore of your pure diamond-like tears
It was my time to go
It was time to say good bye.
In Loving Memory</i>Far beyond the reaches of human comprehensionMore Like This
Where days pass with no limit on time
A place of rest for the weary,
For the sick and the broken
A place to go where all darkness is stripped away
A place where you can be at peace once more and evermore...
This is where they now be,
And though you mourn rightly so
Take courage that they suffer no more the troubles of this world
That they are at peace,
In a place where love abounds
Where souls find their final resting place.
Take courage, dear ones, and hope and comfort
For they loved you so much
And you them
They that watch over you now from high above...
They that gallop free on the winds of time.
May they rest in peace now,
And may you find comfort in the love of those around you
May you treasure your memories with those that are passed
And those that live,
And may you be enveloped in the mercy and comfort of God.

Out of gas and old age is how it its gonna be
Too bad Im a walking contradiction
With big dreams and no plan
Still suck at poetry but thats not always how its going to be.
With a pen in hand Im going to make a stand
And face the world around me.
Im going to get past your defenses and open your senses
And change your point of view .
You ask about my life?
Well I guess its your lucky night Ill tell you all
DownfallMore Like This
And in this dark harvest of season
My life has completely lost reason,
For which or against to decide.
All lost in a savage and endless, bleak tide
In sadness and in kindness
In light and in darkness.
In a boat made of hope
I shall sail to tomorrow,
In a winding hurricane
Made of treachery and sorrow.
There's a spear, endless, and colossal spear...
Piercing, slashing though my head.
Starting somewhere in heaven,
Ending somewhere in hell.
Fighting, burning, crying, crashing.
Are the armies within.
In my head they are all thrashing.
On the heaven's and hell's whim.
To be light or to be darkness.
A perpetual array.
It's not merely my choice,
But the choice of the way.
It's an option of the voice,
It's a thin line of gray.
Is it a choice forced by fate,
Is it a pre-set time and date?
Or a choice to which I myself sway?
But here's our story anyway .
"Nothing that I do will matter.
As all things will merely shatter!"
All my hopes thus darkness scatter,
As it shoves me a decree.

Fallen AngelMore Like This
Crawling in my forlorn appearance
I hide my soul behind these tattered wings
Tattered and broken as they are
Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood.
In quiet despair upon the cold earth
Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees
And clutched timidly between my fingers
Rests one last jewel of Hope.
A single unblemished plume plucked
From the silver light of dawn
A feathered ray of light from beyond
To illuminate the void that has me bound.
This precious barb of silk
Once lost as I was and forgotten
Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss
To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss.
So now I fade away…
My tender flesh removed
My shattered wings released
My inner light unsheathed… escapes.
