    Thank You Note to the Other Woman

    One man's drink is another man's poison...that's true of women, too...she's anxious to get you, I can't wait to get rid of you...I say, more power to her! and I hope she's got a sense of humor...when she finds out she didn't steal a husband...she just won herself a part-time...

    Splintered...

    I hear the pieces splinter, And in that moment time stands still. Shattering, falling, breaking, Like rain that pours unendingly. Pain courses through every fibre, It twists its jagged edges, embedding itself until It is all that remains. The pieces are so small, The pain can't...

    Lost In Your Heart-beat

    Take a step back, Look at your life, Put it in perspective, See what it's worth. Through the good and bad times, You said you'd be there, But now you're gone, It just aint fair. And I'm the one that's been abandoned, Left behind on my own, Tangled in the mess you've made. But I...

    Numb

    Is numbness an emotion? How can it not be when, at times, It’s all I ever feel?   Sometimes I wonder if it has a mind of its own It’s very deceptive, Clever, And cunning. At first it seeps into yourheart, Makes you cold, Weak, Vulnerable. Then it envelopes your...

    You've got that desire

    that I need Enough sharpness to make my heart bleed Manipulate me into that bad deed Drive me mad, accelerate the speed You've got that decisiveness I need Boy your the boss, you take the lead Show me how you do it, please proceed You've got that desire that I need

    Unwanted

    Not the best song lyrics I've ever written but still I'm posting them. Throw it away, All your dreams, They're worthless, they say. They threw me out, Tossed me about, Pulled my life from me. All me hope drained away, In a secret, They put you down. Stand up, that's what we're...

    A Mask Of Smiles

    Do you see my smile? The one that I wear everyday The one that says I'm okay But am I? Do you hear me laughing At your lamest jokes And silly antics But is it for real? Or is it fake? Is it a mask I wear To avoid the questions? Or a mask that I wear To hide my emotions? Do you...
