    I did nothing wrong, To hurt you with my tongue,

    For the words I have sung, Surely they shouldn't have stung. To be honest, I loved you till the end, But now we are just friends. It ended so abruptly when your soft lips departed and spoke, And in the end I couldn't manage a croak, My life is bad but it was livable with you...

    Touch Me

    One look from you, I bare my soul Rarer than you will ever know Forbidden love, friend or foe I cannot hide, what I cannot show Exquisite torture, I hesitate Led by longing, lust, or fate But through every pulse, you resonate Made all the sweeter for the wait Touch me now with...

    I watched a lad die today,

    I looked on as life passed away... It was not for him being a stranger, but only death as a tragedy; Yet not a tear did my heart give away... A mother cried today, Her son passed away... It was not shock or tragic disbelief That made my heart stone... For felt I no grief...

    By Me, For My Childhood Abuser....

    I was just a child, and you a man, now I'm an adult, look at me if you can. I'm no longer the child, You sought to destroy, the innocent life, you claimed as your toy. now let's see you hurt me, let's see you try, but you can't hurt me, as I'm stronger inside. You stole the child...

    The Ultimate Gift

    My stepson arrived whilst we were away, Oblivious was I on that wonderful day. My husband, he knew, his child would be born, Between son and his wife, emotions were torn. I never found out until much later on, For a whole ten months, the prize I had won. The confession it came...

    Apparently this community is not mature enough for cussing. and the first time someone told me "this is all your fault" i collapsed under the weight of his life and the first time someone told me "i'm so sorry" it was when he kissed my best friend and the first time someone...

    On a whim, I followed the sun hoping at last

    that love was won. Into darkness, far through space till I was lost, and out of place. Left or right, now up or down? Wherefore have I lost my crown? The cold embraces and constrains and I will slowly go insane. For did I loose my way back home? Meandering about the cosmos...

      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...

    Step upon the crystal gate made of broken glass

    and razor blades. Let the pain whisk you away to a land of awe and terror. The feeling of which burns into your brain with remebrance and falls upon your knees begging for forgiveness. In the slightest mind... Travel your own path

    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.

    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...

    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.

    The Laugh, Loud, obnoxious,

    sometimes annoying, But! Contagious, none the less. It's like a disease, Only everyone wants this one. Laughter, truly is the best medicine. You can't be mad, or sad when you're laughing. It's almost impossible. Almost. So again, the laugh.
