    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    As I lay back down to sleep to dream of nature's virtue, sweet to dream of her within my mind, to dream of once upon a time to dream the dream of happy ever afters to dream once more of nature's laughter to know it teases, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    i like how it widdles away from something like

    a wheat being eaten by some wild animal you know how it looks when it's down to the root? and then it's gone? as if it just went to another place, but it did, it went into the belly of the one who ate it. into the earth it goes.

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    Mirror, Mirror on the wall,

    My back faced to the bathroom stall, Why do I see my face, But not what's inside. Why does my body insist that I hide? Who I really am, And what people see, Are two different things. Of who I am and my body. No one knows who I am, All they see is a face. All they see is...

    All I see is darkness The color of my savior

    from this héllish land Of crule jokes And sick rumors Unnoticed, My life slips from my wrists Thick and red And for the first time in years I smile The end is near And I love the feeling a little too much

    I am a broken girl I have been shattered And

    the pieces no longer fit together Try to piece me back together And you just cut yourself on my razor sharp edges And pulverized pieces I don't know who I was before the glass shattered From the window to my soul But I do know the ugly truth about people

    Lullaby wanders Lullaby was killed But Lullaby

    A life so young And sweet.

    A life so innocent And free. A life lost; Taken by Death’s Cold hands. A joyous heart, Like a candle flame Burned out, for all time. The coarse sand of life Ceases to fall; Time is over. The young and sweet Are gone. The innocent and free Have died.

    Your presence graces my thoughts from time to
