    back to you, back to us, and all the good times we had…together. When nothing felt better than being in your arms, when you were the brightest light in my sky. I try my best to move on, but these memories paralyse me. I am a prisoner of my mind; held hostage by what I...

    You Are So Gone

    I don’t understand you.I have tried.You refuse to allow your true self to come out.You’re not ready to commit.Meanwhile you play with others feelings,till they fall into your prey.You get scared and runaway,leaving them high and wet, wanting your "Wonder.""Oh, I...

    What could I do To ensure we're built to last?

    And if we ever got together Would the color Fade too fast? All I know is The inked sky was empty And I couldn't put my finger on why Until I looked at you And in your eyes I saw the stars In that moment, I realized, They looked better there by far.

    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.
