even though you are afraid
Love is paying the price when there's a price to be paid
And walking through the dark like a walk in the park.
Love is being a little afraid.
Of opening your heart to a raid
Knowing that it could hurt like sand
Or even a brand
Love is loving one...
now all that I know,
For the light I once followed
Left me long ago.
The happiness faded,
Replaced with despair,
And all that I'd once seen
Was no longer there.
I search to retrieve it,
Yet my efforts in vain.
Of my once guiding light,
Only shadows remain.
I want to scream and run away from here,
Every day this pain just grows and grows,
Reminds me of every single day it snows.
Every thought, every word, all the things that go by,
Every single one is the reason she wants to die.
All her tears have dried and her fate...
This feeling deep inside me,
The one that lasts through everything that happens to me,
I'll be honest,
I wouldn't care..
If it didn't hurt so much..
Every time it re-appeared...
The emptiness that holds me here,
Like twisting vines and thorny trees,
With it here I can never be...
The sun long since gone to bed,
The mournful cry of the lonely loon,
As he swims 'neath the August moon.
I am his brother,
As I travel in the ghostly glow,
I have no compass, no earthly map,
To guide me on my lonely quest.
Only a face, a voice,
Whispering from the mists of a...
I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness
A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness
To live within the social parenthesis
I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus.
The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder
I'm due to see a professional Visceral...
If only they spoke ...
.. Those walls .. If only they spoke ...
To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around ..
To tell about those secretive screams that never made a sound ..
To tell about those real smiles that yet haven't been found ..
To tell how those lies...
A laso around your heart
It's beat is stead fast
I've got chills down my spine
I can dance on the wind
As I sing you a song
Of a beautiful mind
You complete me my love
So different, but the same
That laso I threw
Brings you closer to me
The goosebumps rise
Roses are dull
violates are dying,
you say we dont care
but yet i am crying.
just fades away,
im left behind
we want you to stay.
In my eyes
im holding back tears,
scared and in pain
from all the past years.
We all care alot
we dont want you to go,
i try and stop you...
Solitude is the goal, solitude is the key.
I'm afraid to be forgotten, don't forget me.
Oxygenate me, I want to sit on the moon.
I just want to be free, I want serenity soon.
Can I go to distance? Can I age to infinity?
I've been broken, I've been fixed.
Been the wanderer...
I do this faster
I say what I dream
AND DO WHAT I SAY
Idle threats are a stranger to me
Because the promise that said
I could never
Or will never amount
I fill my cup the fullest extent
Only to watch everything tip and drain
I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
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...
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...
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
Are at one with the universe and the cosmos
I gaze upwards to see a celestial
Divine of ambiance within the clouds
The clouds unveil...
It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
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...
That we can open every day.
Each gift we have is full of hope,
As we pull the ribbon away.
Each package that we unwrap,
Is one less left for us to see.
For we can never really know,
What remains under our tree.
What is in store from that day’s gift,
She lies easy in my arms
This dimly moonlit night
Her body supple to my charms
She moans with such delight
I brush her hair back, find her neck
And kiss her softly there
My lips they trace her gentle curves
They make her arch and swear
While fingers brush and pinch and...
so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...
None of it mourned
Alive to you
Lost to me
It turned out this way
Why couldn't you see
How much I was hurt
To do that to me
Is to lock up my way
My way which I knew
But now just regaining
You broke me in two
No more of these sayings...
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...
paint a face
Right over my own
Sometimes I paint it with
Bright smiles that I have
Other times I paint
It fierce with eyes
Cold as stone
I force a giggle
But you can't tell
My real one from
I grab my brush...
when I was young,
I looked around to see,
All the people standing by,
That looked so old to me.
Age is just perception from,
Just your point of view.
Others may not see the same,
In people that you do.
Time has passed and things have changed,
And when I look around to see...
I look at all the pain and strife,
Trying to help but finding out,
That what I had to give,
Wandering round with nothing to do,
Thoughts so blank,
I broke in two.
My heart longing to help,
But my body too broken to move..
My voice unheard as soon cry,
On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station
Lost in tender admiration
I had to turn my gaze away.
For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today.
Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep.
The only time...
I can't sleep at night
I see your face in my dreams
When I turn out the lights
Are on the horizon
You know my weakness
My weakness is dying
You stabbed me in the back
With your jokes and your lies
Because of you
I can no longer close my eyes
My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim.
My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...
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,
and in it's recourse
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
You are lost
In faded colours of Summer's smile
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
of imagination sometimes seeps into my mind
Illuminating the sight of a man so blind
Is it raindrops I see
Or squirrels under a tree
Words can be so difficult to find
I sometimes see the world covered in gray
Hoping to visualize colors some day.
And then it arrives...
I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...
The winds of time erode away
The memories of our past,
Leaving us with shadowy thoughts
That disappear too fast.
And so we cling with all our might
And try to hold them near,
All the things for which we care,
And those that we hold dear.
No matter how much we try to cling...
My dreams hide beneath,
Frighten an fragile,
I protect it's childish soul,
Held tight by my icy lungs,
Where frozen blizzards blow,
Dazed by life's gyre,
Threatened by life's liar,
I bare my teeth, and share
My claws to those who
Would take away my
Each and Every Night
So much do I miss you that
Each and every night as I close my eyes
My heart sees your sparkling eyes, and your smile.
So much do I want you that
Each and every night as I think of you
My heart hears your sweet whispers and your...
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do

Ode to a Lost Sock
She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
the people walk past
Below me the ground,
Above me the clouds
