    funny this was my first.

    The news we do read every day,

    Shows that woe is here to stay. No matter what you do, or may, Nothing will ever be okay. Pets abused until they die, People abused with force, they cry, We turn our heads up, and ask why, Where is the fairness in our lives? You may cry, you may weep, But when the thoughts...

    The fragments of my mind can't seem to grasp

    A Weaker Soul

    { I only cry when it rains } { No one knows that I'm in pain }  { I only laugh when I"m insane } { There is nothing left that I can claim } { My life has been just like a train } { It has wrecked and I'm  to blame } { The cars go by on first and main } { But i am walking...

    From where does death follow

    and prey, tiptoeing around on pointed feet. No I do not describe decay, not at all in the -usual- way. I intend to describe a loss of self, when old egos do burn in effigy And I cannot describe the pain, which comes along with this terrible end But lo' behold! Rejoice and...

    The Collective Eye

    "You are the one that saved me" I stay up day

    and night terrified of what is wrong or right, I hear the voice in my head screaming, you should be dead, dead, dead, the tears start to roll down my face, I look beyond and see someone of grace, you smile with peace and fun, and now the tears are done, I realize my true darker...

    My quill on paper is like blade to skin

    but forbid the transparency of one that is paper thin. My heart is heavy with envy and droopy with guilt but even though my heart of precious metals is formed it can still be smelt. The furnace in which is your love and your compassion is one thing that no person has given me.

    Ghost

    I live in a car that's been burned out for years. The guy that was driving, His bones are still here. I was with him when it happened. We were both drinking beer. We went off a cliff. The fire burned up our tears. I am waiting for judgment. My soul shakes with fear. This life...

    What little bit of what's left of me almost died today. Those things that mean so much in this world, I lost along the way. I met a man as cold as me. He found what i had lost. He turned around and gave it back.. He knew just what it cost. In a world so cold and hard...

    Tormented Soul! Childhood.

    .. what childhood?! Someone stole my innocence! Ripped away from me... like a piece of fabric torn only in time. To survive the pain this child must walk thru the tear and become an adult way to early. Mentors?!? They are too far, few and in between, too busy in their own worlds...

    In the blink of an eye I realize my motivation

    A link that lies beyond the world Its treasures are immersed in a part of the soul That's not of this world When the figures of Earth are Gods With futile force they slay As they're only in store as machines of pain.

      She locks herself away in her room,

    So she can finally let her real self roam. Struggling to keep clean, Her demons, they scream. "Cut me, cut me" She can't seem to keep away from things, That are sharp. She struggles, she screams but she promises to keep clean. She feels so engulfed in the dark. "Look in the...
