    The Winds Of Time

    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...

    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...

    I think I'll call it: Forget Forever

    Lets just get lost in the pain of the uncaring, and find a way to numb it all away. We've dealt with it all our lives, but now is the time we've begun to give up. We've got to numb the pain. To make it all just go away. We must figure something out soon, before it's too late...

    Stalking

    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...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    I just feel it's been so long, So long that I've been holding on I've forgotten how to sing my song. I have to strike out on my own But now I just feel so alone I take a breath, I can see I'm free I'm scared but I will live for me.

    ' I flash a gentle smile, And tilt my head, I take a deep breath, Hesitantly, Almost as if I don't know the answer, I say, Love is a force A force of nature That we cannot command It cannot be erased, Manipulated, Or restrained If you can do so, It is not the true nature Of...

    It's funny that calm feeling you feel,

    right before everything goes terrifically wrong. It's funny how everything you valued , leaves you in the end . It's funny how anything with eyes can produce tears, yet we swear as men we don't cry . It's funny how we rebel against laws that we ourselves came up with .
