    This mirror here holds no reflection The image

    He Is Me

    there is a creature that comes from a place where there is no hope or joy. The air itself is filled with misery. His heart is filled with a sadness that words really cannot depict. He walks among you but you would never noticed him. He is me.

    Forever we live, Forever we die.

    Day by day, We own our one lie. Promises are broken, We all give up hope. Alas, however, Who was first to go? Trapped inside, alone and scared. We survive these days, living in fear. Their minds are their home, To see nothing, and always be alone. For a moment, A brave soul...

    In a cold dark town, Smog filling the air,

    Kids wearing deep frowns, Intoxicating pollution kills with no care, Life was happy and used to be fair, Poor child am I, Gazing at the thick smog pondering why?, Father and mother brought me into this world, Not a damn given as I sit in waste, This planet suffocates and with...

    Frozen landscape Stretching all around Bleak

    The sins of my past I try to free They are

    deep within me Well guarded Where no one can see Walls built thick through years of guilt How the puzzle pieces don't really fit To far down Where they can't be found My sins Now within me Will never be free

    The depths of the stars in the sky could never

    hide, The pain, the shame, That I hide beneath the smile in my eyes, And the nightmares, They continue to wake me, Leaving a trail of tears along my face, Some escaping to my hands, Leaving invisible marks of the churning emotions below the smile in my eyes.
