The Princess....... -
She will become my queen of hearts
She is the Princess in my hands
She is the blood through my veins,
the wind in my hair.
Candlelight and champagne...
Sitting in a tree

Today I'm finally free
You'll never hold me back
Climbing up so high
Just staring at the sky
In a world that cannot lie

I Want - I want to love you simply,

A Friendship Lost By Brenda J. Metz - I remember the time not long ago
When we laughed and shared it all
We were the very best of friends
Or at least that’s what I thought.
That happiness I thought you killed off
Came rushing back the second we talked
Why am I holding onto you
When there is nothing to hold onto
And I hope you know, it takes a lot...

I have seen them playing cards under a single light-bulb
and tried to join in, but they...

In Your Heart

He was so proud of his little girl
It was her very first day of school
He walked with her to school that day
And she held his hand all the way...
Guilt runs through my veins
My heart holds so much pain
My dignity has been slain
Rememberence always stays
Every time I try
To look you in the eye
My soul just slowly dies...
Darkness hides and
Darkness falls and
Dark inside and
Our hearts with doubt
My heart ache but I don't recall
A reasoning on it nor the cause
I ponder to no results
What could hurt me without a name?
But of course it's my brain
Why do you make my heart...
Pools of blood
Make a mess
Try not to drown
Pools of blood
Red scarlet lines
Pools of blood
Don't get caught

by: Anne Bradstreet (c.1612-1672)
Y memory is short, and braine is dry.
My Almond-tree (gray haires) doth flourish now,
And back, once straight, begins apace to bow.
I have lost my mind.
And I am done now.
And this doesn't bother me anymore.
Not one bit.
And I think that is how I know that I have lost my mind.
But I wish the voices in my head...
Feathers fall like rain,
They twinkle to the ground in vain,
By my side we jump into the night,
Like a wraith your hands closed tight,
Skin like snow stained forever red...
I Love Poetry (this Is My Poem) - I love the way you look at me
i love the way you stare
i love your big blue eyes
your long and wavy hair
You heart is made of gold
so pure and so...
Walking towards death
Closer with each step
Across the street
And into the woods
Take my pills
And cut my wrists
This time my life
Is done for good
The love I’ve lost...

Definition - Loving someone is standing
precariously on the edge of the building,
ready to jump.
It is lying in a flooded bathtub holding your breath
until your lungs give out,
