    Stars Fall Into The Sunset

    Let the stars fall into the sunset like you told me you’d always be there. From the day that I met you until that final tear was cried, I always knew that you were mine. I let the world decide for my heart; decisions I let no longer be my own. You were the light for me in this...

    "Memories of you" Again I learn,

    That love can burn, It's not all fun and games. Betrayed by friends? Well that depends, I'd rather not call names. So here I write, About my plight, And hope for someone new A brand new face, To help replace, Those memories of you.

    Seeing blood red roses in the cold winter's night hold power in what is true; real. You never know pure beauty until you take away the complications of life and see things in their truest form. They tell me love is blind, that it holds nothing of innocence in this world. I've...

    A Poem And An Awesome Title 2

    I'm thinking too much about you,  So I can't sleep tonight,  But when I stop I have bad dreams,  Where nothing is alright.  I dream that you aren't here,  And I have to sleep alone,  I dream of reality,  When the thought is so much easier to postpone.

    We're taught well people will hurt us,  We learn that everyone lies,  We know too well this world is harsh,  We expect all of the world to die-  But nobody told us we'd deceive ourselves,  No one knew how much the new breed would hate,  They didn't know we'd never ask for...
