books in prison then they do on the outside?
Will criminals soon be smarter than citizens?

That I should not fall in love with a poet
Because you're like a broken glass that's in need
of a bet, on whose hand it would meet
But if that hand was mine
I would still touch it like a lover
I would hold that jagged knife as it shine
and only I can say when it is over
because maybe an empty heart needs another
because maybe one body can fit two souls
and though it might cause so much trouble
maybe we just got the same goals
I would even whisper softly as I bleed
while you ask, shout and plead
for me to stop holding you close
for that decision is mine and its you I chose
Even when tears flows like a river
and your anger gives me the shiver
I will soldier on with you in the dark
cause like you, I too might have that spark
The MirrorI stare into a mirror without a mirror in sight,More Like This
I walk a path my feet will never touch.
I talk to friends whom I've never known,
I lay with men I don't even know.
I put on clothes I would never wear,
I eat in a home I have never seen.
Who is this me when I am here?
This me who isn't afraid,
this me who doesn't even care.
Who is this me who has a life,
this me who is no longer alone.
Who is this person who looks like me?
This person who shames others,
this person who dirties her body.
This person who lives to be free,
this person who has no dreams.
Who is this person when I am me,
a me I can never be anymore.
B.L.I get lost so often inside my own head nowMore Like This
I sometimes forget what this story is about
My little bubble is defense against a climate
That alternates every third restless moment
And when the past hits me like a cold fist
My blood hopes for you and I can't resist
Thinking of what runs through my strings
Every time I return to these hellish wings
Because even as my heart races I slow
As if gliding through the satisfying glow
Of how you make my entire system crave
something to sustain the want to be brave
When they struggle with the needle,
I think of you
Just before they put me to sleep,
you're who I see
As I survive this daily battle,
I think of you
Before the light is shut off,
you're who comforts me
I get lost so often in my own dreams now
I keep neglecting what reality is all about
These fantasies are so wrapped up in you
It's only now that you're getting the clue
And when the now hits like a hot flash
My blood cries for this to survive at last
Dreaming of what provokes these pulses
The OutcastI am the strange oneMore Like This
Whose hearts cries
Are oh so soft
I ask for nothing
Other than someone
Who with laughter and joy
Can make me smile once more
True FriendA friend is someone who caresMore Like This
True ones are hard to find
But when they are
They always help
No matter the distance
They'll find a way
So count yourself lucky
If you have one
And keep them close
For we all need a true friend
And I am glad to say I do

I am Useless, as there is no one thing I can't do if I put my mind to it.
I am Casteless, because I am unique in every single way.
I am Nothing, because there has never been something like me before.
But it's okay, because that's what makes me "Me".
