    Dogs deserve appreciation Animals love us no

    matter what, there is no hatred I say dogs, because all I have are dogs But animals are seriously the most lovely, they love you unconditionally Without any ties, as time flies by They all deserve such loving appreciation Because they don't have for us any hatred

    Picture frames above my doorstep,

    Shining light-beams onto my eyes, Beyond my cave dwells a war yet, I can't seem to proclaim my cry. A world not traveled. Snow like a bed, Trampled by the feet of hurried men. I've lost my freedom, To sprawl and rest, But I've gained an...

    The Illusion Exposed Isn't it funny,

    your selective perception ? You choose not to know even after you've been told. They say ignorance is bliss. For you it's a religion. What if you lose focus? Can you see it now? The key is that you don't know what you've been told. It's not that you weren't told. And it's not...

    Why Did You Walk Away

    Why did you have to walk away? When my heart was begging you to stay. Why did you have to phone? Why didn't you just leave me alone. Why after so many years? Now, I can't hold back the tears   I found another man to love me My love belongs to my family Now, please just walk...

    You may not like him, but he is the guy who makes my heart stop. You may not like what he does for a living, but when I am having a bad day, and feel like crying, he is the one who lifts up my spirts, and makes me feel happy. You may not like how he has treated people in the past...

    Sometimes I just wanna die But then say goodbye

    To my only guy? I'd rather see my heart untie before my eyes. I love your smile, My heart beats like I've run a mile. You've been my rock, And I look for love in your eyes like Sherlock. My dear you hold my heart, Is it bad that I might be looking for a restart?
