    I want to run in the sun,

    I want to have fun with a gun, I want to go with the flow, I like the feel of the wind on my skin, blowing on trees while I'm naked I couldn't give a **** if anybody sees, I want to take flight with the light, I want to go higher than I have ever been this is not a song lyric...

    Don't Leave Me Alone Today

    VERSE 1I have faced each day with the blade,Found no answers at all,I hold on until the end,But slowly it gets colder,Each night draws in my tears.VERSE 2You say not to run away,Yet you have left over and over again,Letting my light go,Fading away my childhood,Where has my...

    My Song...Fallen Angels

    Fallen angels hear me now, We've all lost what we had found. Confusion flies into the room. Is there nothing we can do..? There was a time when I felt happy. It was with you, because you would let me. There is a place I felt completely all together yet I, Still stared out, So...

    Figure Me Out! :)~

    You don't see me as I feel you . You don't feel me as I see you . Do not hear me as my heart holds true . You won't give me. When my mind is blue. The time of day Is it all I deserve? A period of passing by . Day and night a heartfelt cry. To save me from myself...

    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...

    Well here we are again,

    a cage of damaged docile conundrums. Rampantly sifting through body heat, with a strong debris of painful feeling. It sweeps me into bed, and flaunts the need and wish for ever lasting sleep. What can I do, now that this feeling is here? Do I nurture this inner beast of heated...

    Build me up Break me down,

    You stole my heart, And turned around; A painful taste, of positioned lace, Another feeling, To be erased; Picked up a mask, And wore it well, A broken case, Now go to hell; A dance of love, You turned it on, Now flip the switch, Now that you're gone; A fruitful dream, For once...

    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...
