    Death Of Her Love

    Your silence tells me all i need to hear. There's no chance, you'll ever want me near. Even tho i now face my worst fear, i refuse to shed a single tear. I know we were destined to be mates, but i also know its far too late. I destroyed the door and locked the gate, now eternal...

    Can u see what I've not seen,

    Through eyes that have grown old? Can u feel what I've not felt, With hands so very cold? Can u know what I've not thought, To love to have to hold? And can u say what Ive not said, The words I've never told? Yes I can see what u can't see Through eyes of brown...

    i am of glass crushed smashed broken i

    am splintered- i am of glass once sipped before the crack the chip set in- i am of glass outcast trashed a vessel tossed discarded away- i am of glass brittle of the past every crack a map without way back- i am of glass and i shatter like rain --

    Love

    How quick is love To whom does love entrust Those in love must be responsible Love is precious Protect love Hold love in your arms Cup love in your hands Let love burn Keep love safe And love will keep safe those it blesses Love cries Weeping Love is God

    A Lot Of It

    The abyss calls Seductively beckoning, To be satisfied, Fulfilled, I edge closer. The precipice Of Life and Death Either way I go, Or fall, I’m screwed In Life, pain Stabbing at my heart Ripping at my unsound mind Insanity Becomes reality In Death, release But potential...

    Not Yet.

    Come on baby, give me one last dance tonight, I don’t want to meet the darkness behind the light. Not yet. Come on baby, close your eyes and say my name, I cant bear to meet you with this shame. Not yet. Come on baby, kiss me one last time, I can't confess to our crime...

    will u tell me what u think?

    Come back to me my mother, Or I will come join you. You left me way to soon here. I knew that's what you'd do. You told me I was silly, And you would stay alive. But much to soon you left me, And I was broke inside. Come back to me my sister, Or I will come join you. I can't...

    kiss is tomorrow's goodbye- i touch of gone while it's still here it kisses soft of tomorrow's tears my body chalked i am the crime of a fleeting love that was not mine- there is beauty in all things doomed it hides in sight like a colorless bloom- embracing death before love's...

    I Told You.

    On this cliff’s edge I stand to my pledge Here among the rocks and grass I await time to pass I told you I’d be here In our place with nothing to fear. I’ve stood here since you went away, I shouted after you that I’d stay. You said what we had was through And I said...

    softly i mourn discarded dreams as each

    becomes a falling leaf with heart of wither in season of loss an ocean of tears i'm soon to cross- the willow that weeps now weeps for me as do all souls forgotten at sea for i am a ship made of dust with heart of rot and soul of rust as empty are arms that do not hold full is...

    Let It Out!

    Nothing

    Nothing is important. Not your tears. Not your love. Nothing matters. Nothing at all. It dosent matter, if you are bleeding. Not even if you are deing. No one really cares. In a 100 years no one will remeber your name. Why even try? When you know that you are nothing. How can...

    The Cryer's Prayer

    Feel like crying. As if my tears and pity would be The closest intimate companion I’ve ever had. Travelling down my cheeks soaking my pillow Blowing my noise Mediating Praying Oh Father please Hear my cry Forgive my sins Provide comfort and healing Direction and blessings Amen
