    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...

    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...

    I've kissed more bottles

    than boys but in the end you learn to love the pain you feel I've figured out sometimes to stay alive you have to kill your mind but listen here there is no feeling as tragic as wishing you had tried harder

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    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 have been waiting all day.

    ..to be alone with you. Alone with your night shades and dark secrets. Alone with under the cover of a forgotten darkness. Alone with a symphony of quiet callings and lonely sounds. Alone with the moon as she traces her smile across the sky. I have been waiting all day...

    Moving stuff from my suspended acct.

    :-/ I woke to a jealous sunrise. A sunrise that couldn't beg my attention. She screamed reds and cried yellows. Giving up, she sat and joined me in a quiet day dream of you.

    April’s Shower We all watched

    as they dragged her away. Sat stunned with fingers through the cage…as they dragged her away. Raced tears down by-standing faces…as they dragged her away. Closed ears from silent screams…as they dragged her away. We all watched…as they dragged her away.

    October 4, 2013) You can only hear thunder when the weather turns cold and the turtles in the sea becomes old. All your secrets has been told. Self becomes bold and Lilith took your soul and sold it for a sack of pure Thai Heroin.
