    "Living in the unknown.

    " Hearts can be in many colors, Blood bleeds in many ways, Still my heart lingers more, Because I am searching for a home, We all need a home, We all need a place to be, A place where others lay, Laying as a pack on we shall go, Moonlight skies wake me up, Keeps my mind racing...

    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...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    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...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    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...

    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...

    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 Missed Your Smile Today.

    Not for her sighs these hands,

    A flock of birds fly away,

    it's the start of a new day, a glass is broken, no words are spoken, the man stands and strives, starring at the knives, the memory of you rests inside, they had only cried, the sorrow remains and the shadows strength gains, no light to be seen, wishing it was all just a dream...

    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.

    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...

    Right now I weep. I experience no self loathing,

    in fact, I feel no emotions for myself, nor for others. No empathy for them and no sympathy for the "devil". I see the roots beneath their every stem and yet I share with those who can only see what wilts above. A perennial masterpiece they create of flawed intricate design...
