    Sweet Sister

    I didn't know I'd wake up wishing we were all dead I didn't know that I'd be killing myself with regret Somebody should have warned me, not that I'd have listened anyway Your sweet, sweet sister went to my head When I tasted your sweet sister I should have known It'd make you...

    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...

    I fell from grace,The fall was hard,The pained you caused,was brutal and scarred.I wished to never be in this place,That it hadn't happened,Was all a mistake.Yet still I fell.Heat turned to fire,The flames building so high,I just couldn't see it,I didn't want to try.I hit the...

    Poetry (lyrics) # 170 Rainbow Of Tears

    This started out to be a poem, but as I was writing it, I began to hear a tune and background singers and a full orchestra. I don't write music. I couldn't carry a tune if I had a bag to put it in, but here comes this song in my head. And that is where it will stay, because I can...

    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...

    My song SNOWFLAKE I wish I was a snowflake,

    So I could be melted away by the sun. Cheery weather never seen, Just a cloud pouring snow by the ton. Hatred's an ignorant species, To deceitful and shamed. Wish we could turn into snowflakes, And bleach out everything that's blamed. Ashes to ashes, The world falls apart...

    She Had Once Been

    She could feel the pain slowly rising in her chest as she stared at the liquid trickling down her arm. Had she done that? Her mouth hung slightly agape as the ache in her heart seemed to choke her. She was alone. With nothing but a pen and a piece of paper to keep her company...
