    Short Poem- Friend Frustartation

    Excuses, excuses you have many. I have little time but you have plenty. You ignore me but you won't admit it. Instead you spout nonsense to say you didn't. But I know you, no matter how much you hide. I know the person that I love is inside. Maybe she's on vacation, who ever...

    Living In The Shadow

    Well here i am, once again. Always the same, always insane. I live in the shadow, I live in a dream. They say im crazy, they say its a faze. Life is just one big maze. Love is a cure, I mean I guess. Im Living in the shadow of The Rest.

    I cried one tear today,

    even though it felt like more. The ocean of tears within me, only one drop came down my cheek. I wiped it away quickly, in fear that the ocean might leak. With eyelids closed, I pushed back the waves that burn my eyes with pain, one tear was enough for today.

    --the Sleep-- The time It fades into

    nothingness... I stare at my ceiling, Watching glowing stars spin. I hear the clock tick, Will that be the only thing to exist In the world's future? The warm breeze, Smelling of cricket song and starlight Stirs my heart. Dream for me?

    He gets her every time.

    Those blue eyes hypnotize She believes every lie That he's ever told her His touch she can't resist And with just one kiss He pulls her back in She can't say no He's got control Of her all over again. Source: http://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/cant-stop-going-back-to-him...

    “We wear the mask that grins

    and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,–
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us...

    Sharing We both shared the pain,

    the ways to make us sane. We shared the game, the rules. We shared the dark, the light. We both agreed the same. We both trusted the way. The sharing was natural and thats how it should stay.
