    Will To Fight

    Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone wondering what the hell I did wrong Trying to pick myself up and carry on Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life Lost your will to fight Trying not to listen to the voices in your head Fighting against the...

    Nobody cares, Nobody is here I'm just alone,

    and dropping tears Can someone tell why you're my fear? I'm hollow. I'm shouting. since My first year! But nobody hears I can't remember my nightmares, they weren't clear Can you remind me what was the deal? I feel your soul, but it's not real I feel pain that just won't heal...

    Burn my heart in the blaze,

    Watch the flames dance with passion, Lighting colours of red and golden amber into the night sky. Watch the flames die, The cold heat that remains, Ashes and dust as a memory of us. Carry the ashes of my heart in the pocket of your soul, Think of me when the world becomes cold...

    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...

    Tapeworm Blues, May 12,

    2012) My intestines aren't intestines. There's a big *** tapeworm inside me. It ears every food I consume. And I never gain weight. As a matter of fact, I am gaunt as ****. My stomach from the outside looks swollen. And the tapeworm keeps growing. I can feel it licking my...

    In Sleepless Hours

    In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    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...

    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.

    Death is a blessing like dressing on a salad;

    less guessing, a ballad to generalize. Less empty. I need a pickup me up, nothing, once plenty. Nothing to see now, something mess left me. Now I let the silent dress me for no pride and less envy and escape from light and let nothing in me and open for answers to only remain...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Stay locked in time in one moment, the beautiful shine, hold it and sit back proud. Cause look at me now. Every days a struggle to fight the ugliness that clings deep. It's stings to peak and see the hatred that rapes me and keeps me weak. The moments I let go and pass on flat...

    Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night,

    Quiet is the wait. One wish, one dream, Two voices searching, Three little words. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait. You only know, And we have hope, I can only wish. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait.

    Is it wrong to miss your voice this much; Your

    laughter and your smile? How about that one look in your eyes I've not seen in a while? The way I feel around you? The faint smell of your skin,? Those moments spent beside you as Love's embers burn within?

    Pain radiates; shattering the silence,
