    Still I've reached no answer,

    For the same old question. Will I ever be satisfied, With anything less than perfection? Can I jump the hurdles, Of life's imperfect flow? Will I contain my pride enough, To enjoy the developing show? The standard I've set for myself, Cannot been reached by me...

    A ghost in the shadow of dawn The space between

    the darkness and light Consciousness descending to take corporeal form. A stranger looking back from a distorted reflection. The demons that gripped the shattered soul, Driven back by nights end Giving angel another day to fight for redemption.

    Look at how the stars shine

    so bright, I could stare at them all night, And dream of a love that seems so right, Maybe all my dreams will become reality tonight. I see my future in the sky, It's kinda cloudy and I wonder why, But life seems perfect in your eyes, You're so beautiful I could die. But...

    Show me how you make a first impression. Take my hand and dance with me for awhile, I'm going to make your head spiral. You get to have me for the night, You better make it right.

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    How I Feel I was told

    that I could be anything The "anything" I chose was nothing I am wasted life and wasted intelligence To all around me, I am a hindrance. I take, never give; I hurt, never heal. My toxic behavior reflects how I feel.
