    Low-Grade Happiness I'd settle

    for low-grade happiness tonight Narcotic of situation, not of choice A semi-stranger on the other end Without a face and without voice I'd be moved to a state of semi-bliss Semi-euphoric; semi-numb By the chance of his company Typed word and mouth dumb I'd beg for a morsel of...

    (Everyone's favorite game,

    June 10, 2012) Everyone hates you. They like to see you hurt and abused. Everyone just can't leave you alone. You can't stand people so you spend your days, lonesome. Its impossible for you to be at bliss. And its mainly because you're always pissed. No smiles for you, never...

    Burn my heart in the blaze,

    The feelings we share I ride like a wave, The ups the downs the direction they make, On a magic carpet that we made, From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid the vessel counts as much as the map, The carriage awaits for us to step up, I admit Its scary as it might...

    Pain radiates; shattering the silence,

    Blurring your vision, Leaving cold smears and stains across the floor. Your hands reach to feel, To find the entry or exit, The point from which the pain holds its core. Wounds visible in their depth, In their crimson contrast to snow white porcelain skin. They are mended...

    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...

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and 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?

    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.
