This world will never understand who I am
Because I’ll never be intriguing to them
I’m trying so hard but it’s so hard to try
She may reach to grab my hand someday
But it’s her fear that’ll make her stay
I’m an emotional wreck she’ll never get
I’m out of her league and she’s so fucking perfect
I’ll take the look and the skittishness along with it
And when I brace from the heartache after I still won’t quit
It’s mean, this hope you’ve given me, ‘cause I’m still hanging on
The writings on the table yet I’m listen to the words in a song
Forgive me for waiting forever and living life like a dream
But if dreams can’t come true why even have them?
I need to shake my head to get my thoughts to run clearer
I don’t like the man that I’m admiring trapped in this mirror
Over and over I’m trying to reply the day you trapped my eyes
But even if my heart dies I’ll always have

Maybe Antidote
Maybe she's my antidote to get me through this hell
Maybe she's the one to note the good that I have done
Maybe she's the missing piece to shake me from this spell
Maybe she's a dream come true, my significant, the one
It's hard to even look at her when she's so far into my skin
She knows the secrets in my heart the fears I keep within
A letter that I tried to write but locked inside my mind
It's amazing what she won't search for but easily will find
She pushes past my pride to uncover the smallest word
And with the simplest glance my doubt seems to be blurred
She grabs my hand and seizes control of everything
I used to think I was emotional but now I'm really feeling
She won't stop at just today she's fighting to make it stay
And as I continue everyday I start to find my way
She's helping me see the person deep inside of me
The confident, the loving, the person who I use to be
It's just moral justice stripping me of all the false beliefs
Replacing all the voids inside stolen by all th

Literature
A Secret So Deep You Wouldn't Believe It
You told me not to worry
So I tried to fall asleep
You said not to be sorry
There’s no promise you won’t keep
So I believed you and went on
Spoke my heart out in a song
And you sat there all night listening
Your eyes just kept on glistening
In the sun you stayed away
Asked me if I’m still okay
I said “I’m fine, yea I’m fine”
But will you ever be mine
 She shrugged it off and carried on
Wrote my words off, I was wrong
Kissed my lips and moved my soul
Gave back the love someone had stole
Popped the bubbles in my brain
Sent my worries down the drain
And I felt fine, oh yea so fine
But when were we out of time
 All these questions in my eyes
She sought them out like fireflies
I couldn’t hide anything inside
She had the key to unlock my pride
Knock, knock, knocking on my door
Until my tears were on the floor
She said “Goodbye, unless you tell me more”
I said “Alright, but what do you want it for?”

Literature
Hope and Happiness
All my life I've been running from the feelings I don't understand
Waiting for a heartfelt promise to take my hand
Trying to build a fairytale land for the girl of my dreams
Never stopping to think about whatever that means
I've been the helping hand for so many years
The shoulder to cry on, the lender of ears
But in the moments that mattered when I was alone
I was skipped on the water and sank like a stone
All this time I've motivated people around me
Just to lose the confidence I made them see
Finally the superman who could never be broken
Has fallen to all the words that were spoken
The world is so bitter but not the place
It's a beautiful view that we cannot face
I tried to see the smile in every sunrise
But the eyes before me were in disguise
All my life I've been running from the feelings I tried to understand
But I failed every time because they were planned
Fairytales were made to be believed and dreamed
But hope and happiness cannot be redeemed

She has no idea I can see her with her camera and what's cute
Is that through my shades I've been following suit
She's trying so hard to find a way but easily avoids me here
If it's a picture she's wanting, a memory maybe, why fear?
The rain seems to be dampening her spirit
She's smiling so nervous, looking off, on alert
I'd be stupid not to try to understand her
In the mirror when she tries to pretend to look away
I catch a glance of her eyes and I can get them to stay

The Road
She had her heart set on letting go
Lost somewhere in between now and what she used to know
This cruel dark world can swallow you whole
The greed and the hunger is never too full
Climb up the tree to hide from the embers
And wake the fear inside, no one remembers
You crash and you burn and you try hard to learn
But you never know what to do when it comes to your turn
You can stumble, collapse or just never give up
It all depend on the way that you look at the cup
Empty you listen for the sounds of advice
But now you failed all over because you already did twice
The road which was paved has faded to rock
So you sit and you wonder while you're wasting the clock
Maybe you're happy just wasting away
Forever in limbo waiting for that one day
I can't say that reality will ever wake you
But I hope some day you come to find what to do

Literature
Black Heart
She didn't have to say a word I just knew
As the words started to empty the distance grew too
There was no saving me from the fear I smear in my path
And now I dance to the pain on this terrain I built
I was asked so many times to lose my sleeves
I guess I thought I would get cold without them
It's a web of lies that forms and then traps you
Before you can see it for what it is you're stuck
Tormented, glued to every strand of hope that was
Who you were doesn't matter to who you will become
And as you rise you have less innocence then before
Emotion has far less reach and your spirit so much more gore
I can't tell you how she does it but I can tell you how it feels
Looking into her bright blue eyes you fall as she steals
And every time you blink you memorize another fantasy
A vivid dream, a life so real, a love, a fabricated destiny
You want to shut your eyes and hope they'll never open again
Because even you know the truth, only God can offer paradise
The sun will come up and bring in

A Video Game
You Really Think…A Video Game?
"It's only a game" she yells out loud
As I scream even louder to silence my heart's pound
No one even knows what level I'm on
Fun, even passionate, no I'm fucking insane
To me this is everything not just a game
I died three time but I lived through it all
Tell me, how many times has God answered that call
Kicking and screaming you're reigning on my parade
This world's so alive, my masquerade, the way I fade
Never thought I'd say that I'm so scared of death
Not to re-spawn but be left without any breath
You say and keep saying that it's melting my brain
Truth is its opening my eyes even more its insane
Because I can turn this game on day after day
Wake up every morning in the same kind of way
But you die in the game and you just go to the start
Die in the real-world and the whole thing falls apart
In the end, there's the end when you reach the last stop
Hope the story's good enough and you come out on top
So I'll calm down when my brain is at ease

What Happened to the Sun
A kiss in the wind, blowing away
Trying to catch it, to make it stay
I close my eyes and see your face
Trying to return to that place
Hands in my pockets, nothing to hold
Things will get better, so I’m told
I was trying to remember how it used to be
When what I had was what I see
Pictures of you and me
God we fit so perfectly
What ever happened to the sun?
It seems so dark now that it’s done
What ever happened to the sun?
The days use to hold so much fun

Now that I walk, I feel so cold
And the memories, seem so old
Lost in a crowd, but I’m too alone
Tuned into a wishful zone
There’s a whole wide world but you’re the dot
Couldn’t stop crying if I gave it a shot
I was trying to remember how it used to be
When what I had was what I see
Pictures of you and me
God we fit so perfectly
What ever happened to the sun?
It seems so dark now that it’s done
What ever happened to the sun?
The days use to hold so much fun

Lie
Why do you have to lie?
Why can’t you just deny?
The fatal words in my ear
The pain that I have to hear
Why can’t you just be?
Why can’t you just see?
Someone other, someone better
Why can’t you see inside?
Why do you have to hide?
The feelings bring you down
Invisibility takes your crown
Why can’t you just be?
Why can’t you just see?
Someone other, someone better
Why can’t you walk with me?
Why can’t you try to see?
The way that my love kills
My sleep is in need of pills
Why can’t you just be?
Why can’t you just see?
Someone other, someone better
Why can’t you talk aloud?
Why can’t you be found?
I’m trying so fucking hard
But I’m just leaving scared
Why can’t you just be?
Why can’t you just see?
Someone other, someone better
Why do you have to lie?
Why can’t you just deny?
Maybe you’re as scared as me
Afraid of your memory
Why can’t you just be?
Why can’t you just see?
Someone other, so

Please, Hear Me
Staring through the window into the rain
Searching the darkness to resolve the pain
The drops cascade like ashes to the ground
Erasing every tear of rain with one final sound
Can you believe I still see you in night like these?
The raindrops are spheres, pieces, memory keys
Giving me vague introductions to a past feeling
So that when I lay down I see you on the ceiling
I see you running away with your hand in mine
Can’t keep shaking my head and pretending I’m fine
Shivering in the cold because I know your warmth
I would have held you closer had I known your worth
Penciling in the days of the year to look better
God, all these tears and not a single drop has matter
Guess it’s to be expected after I stained your faith
Assuring you that this love was poisoned by Death
I swore up and down, to find my certainty was a lie
Oblivious to the screaming within me, I watched you cry
Counting the footsteps as I turned and walked away
And now I’m tallying the moments, the weeks,

Tonight
Did you know, I heard you cry
I was right outside, with the stars tonight
And I thought I’d run, but I felt so wrong
So I waited for you, knowing what you would do
Oh baby take my hand, it’s been too long
Since I heard you laugh or seen you smile
Don’t turn back, we’ll take a ride tonight
And I swear you’ll be safe, here next to me
Tonight
Please don’t stop to think, the moods already wrong
And I’ve been wanting and I’ve dreamt for a while
Don’t look back, give up and run from the fight
And I know you’ll be safe, knowing where you will be
Tonight

And when I saw you first, I was afraid
But you caught my eyes, and you never shook
So you sat by me, looking for something else to see
I took your hand and you didn’t hesitate to stand
Oh baby take my hand, it’s been too long
Since I heard you laugh or seen you smile
Don’t turn back, we’ll take a ride tonight
And I swear you’ll be safe, here next to me

10 Years, So Far
In ten years I still see your face
All these years and I’m in the same place
Never could shake my head of you
Change in time still in the same view
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh…
Ran from here in hopes to find
The angel trapped inside my mind
Know I went back but I never gave in
Cause the fire’s still burning deep within
I could never forget you
Even if I wanted to
You were my everything
Every beat was a meaning
And now I’m lost
In life's false cost
Keep searching forever
My forgotten lover

The riverbank always kept us dry
In the water we would never die
She held me close, I held her tight
One day our lives would play out right
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh…
The stars at night had so much say
Wishing dreams, as we would lay
Kissed me there, still feel the touch
You said my love was never too much
I could never forget you
Even if I wanted to
You were my everything
Every beat was a meaning
And now I’m lost
In life's false cost
Keep searching forever
My forgotten lover

This One's for You
You’re like a delicate flower
I’m your care-giver, giving you water
And I’m watching you grow
(Watching you grow) This is until the day you finally know
Expecting the unexpected
Suddenly simplicity turns the complicated
Arose from the challenge and admitted my youth
But my heart takes me from beginning to end to the truth
And should I not corral the idea of your name?
Carrying dreams that are meant for a picture frame
Maybe I’m not a puzzle-piece to this timeline
But anywhere I’m lost the sun will shine
Know that once she found my eye she never lost it
The magic strung its strands effortlessly until you fit
And so perfectly to grasp our breaths together
Without panic we cherish the rest of our lives, forever
Shake my head in disbelief
Shake’s not over till I find relief
Engulf your tiny hands in mine
Shed a tear while you will shine
And for now I can only keep dreaming
Still the time, still the wedding
I’m sure you’ll see those pictures one day

Can't Feel Anymore
I take a walk apart from this world
With my lost and scrambling mind
And suddenly I see you holding his hand
The image in my eyes is reflected into yours
But you don’t even show that you’re sorry
Do you want to feel my pain?
Just take this knife and stab your heart
And as you scream, cry, or die
I will watch you crumble
And when you fade into whatever afterlife
I pray that you dream there of me

Fires burn in the rivers of my life
These chemical reactions make me disappear
And you lose my eyes and drift away
Do you want to feel my pain?
Just take this knife and stab your heart
And as you scream, cry, or die
I will watch you crumble
And when you fade into whatever afterlife
I pray that you dream there of me

I want to scream your name
But my words are too broken apart
All that’s left is the wind’s surrounding ghost
Because I can’t feel anymore, I can’t feel
Do you want to feel my pain?
Just take this knife and stab your heart
And as you screa

Smiling for Her
It’s been so long that I’ve held this captive
These heart attacks inside
Too many nights have tormented my sleep
And she finds me passed out on the floor
In hand, puzzle-pieces of letters
Vaguely resembling love
In spirit I am tortured
But I’m missing you anyway
Boxes of unfinished thoughts are hidden in the shadows
Behind closed closet doors
She never understood my ways
So I forget those days
Layers of scotch tape line it fully
But it only bares the weight
Sadly I smile for her
Knowing I’m lying to myself
I just never saw your reasons
Topped off with treasons
Going out of your way to break my heart
I served it on a platter
Case closed, gaze found a way
And she listens to me ask your name
How I ever thought I’d make it
Guess I never thought it through

Iron-Oxide and Strange
Cleverness is hard to bare.
Sometimes I feel like reminding you
that pride is a sin.
Then again, it’s hard to know which you I mean—
since half the time I’m only talking to     me
anyway.
Poems, the great American novel, and overdue rent checks:
these are the things we expect to right themselves.
Spiders making webs around our heads,
fate is a padlock. I’ve swallowed the key.

Under the Influence
Love is not
           Absolut
any more than a shot girl’s
                         a princess.
Too much is never enough and,
    one shot or two,

            come morning.
Your mistress tosses her head and screams.
She’s not your wife or courtesan—
   ignore or pay her,

Your morning-sick string of bedroom blues and browns and

Literature
Reality's Vindicaton
Words are always repeated
This scene has been so overplayed
And memories of you are just images
Caught in a down pour of rain
I feel as if I have been captured
A trap within my stomach
Filtered through constant feeds of electric
That you did not put into my life
And I count my days in seeing you now
Drones of my very own thoughts
I wish I could say that I have been reaching
But the effort here has been lost
Today I felt the need to retract
The shock of sudden manipulation
Has paralyzed me into a spiral
And my success has grown to be high
But my core & inspiration
Everything that made me whole
Has fallen beyond my reach.
The first sound of you in a slow forty-eight hours
Was optimistic & witty
A voice to trick the hopeful minded
Has a tendency to take me away
But the confusion that has settled in front of my eyes
Moved my veil of pessimism
Into a safely woven web of lies.
Reality's vindication.

  • Listening to: "Where'd you go?" - Fort Minor
I've been consistantly writing again. It's nice because it keeps me busy and also updated on how people feel about my work. I was gone for a while...and by that I mean I lost myself for a short while, but I found myself again. It didn't take me long to remember why I was smiling in the first place.
