    I wish someone told me what life was like A

    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...

    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...

    A New World. I had a meeting not long ago,

    And thought we were alone. But we were joined by several more, Connected on their phone. Before the words could be expressed, They had to answer text. I could only sit and wait, In hopes that I’d be next. So the future lies before us, And cell phones catch the blame. We...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    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, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    I dream of childhood.

    An hour would last a day. And every next one, would be another one to play. I dream of childhood. To fight my demise. Destroy it with a stick that is a sword in disguise. I dream of childhood. Climbing trees to the top. The branches ate my future, the ground is still a long...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    Love Me Lost Leave me,

    alone in the night. And stay far, far away. I’d rather rot alone. The shadows on the wall, the dark entities just beyond my sight, those I can take. The endless darkness understands, and it asks nothing of me. I have courted Death, a forbidden romance. He beats nightmare wings...

    The hour grows late, the words grow

    Another day. Another hate.

    Another day. I can not take. Another why? It kills my pride to have to stay and face today. Maybe tomorrow will kill the sorrows? Maybe tomorrow will kill the hate? Maybe the rain will wash all the pain of yesterday down the drain. And in my mind all of the cries. Louder than...

    PATRIOT FIGHT By Edward York I have always

    Harmony: clear mind, loosen coupling to things,

    or let a loss change your heart, be true to only you and yours, and you’ll always have a head start Most people are not to be believed, be careful with who you trust, guard your secrets closely, let the past turn to dust Find happiness in simple things, the things no one can...
