    Me and T-sweezy, living in luxury.

    Everyday is a blessing, living in a palace she play queen and I be her king . She could be a goof, and I could play aloof, she could sing to me and she'd have my heart instantly. Oh Taylor, could I love you any more? To wake up next to that face, I'd know i was in a...

    Would you ? : Would you let me hold your hand,

    write our names in the sand? Would you let me kiss your cheek, hold you up when you feel weak? Would you let me be the one to take you off into the sun? Would you allow me this simple dream? Steal a kiss or two, so glad to be near you, Listen for a whisper or two, so glad I can...

    Title: Storm Sail Part I I was swallowed to

    the sky, A helpless babe to her mother's Arms, culled from comfort, carried Off by artificial dragons. Seeing, hearing, frantic as babes are, With weak, uncomprehending minds. The roars she roared as her wings Made the wind submit to her will! The city was set ablaze! Orange...

    I am a wordsmith, right in the flesh.

    Man, writing is the best thing in the world! I'm good at it, it makes me feel good, it's just all kinds of awesome! For me, when everything else fails, writing speaks.

    You were a wild fire

    You and the Bottle

    I know that you and the bottle are buddies since way back when you say that whiskey stood by you, when you couldn't find a friend but sweetheart, I can't help but worry you need it more each passing day and when you crawl inside the bottle the best of you just crawls away Chorus...

    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...

    So I started writing with one line in my head;

    The Heart that bleeds' Greed There could have

    been sorrow , there could have been pain but yet all i can remember is the void. The void of feelings once felt, it's essence leaving me in it's wake. Teasing, taunting me to chase only to find more of the same. My heart is a time bomb of desire, i have no control when i...

    So, sometimes I get ideas in my head for poems. I mostly write lyrics, but occassionally an idea will pop into my head so I will write it down. This isn't very good, and I will probably adapt it, but I thought I would get it down whilst it was still fresh in my mind and edit it...
