    People call it sadness, Loneliness, misery, An i live in it. Im happy, At least people say i am, I have no voice, But they say i talk beautiful words, Im blind, But im told i see the world in a gorgeous way, My people are called memories, They are divided in Depression, Anger...

    I held my baby in my arms,

    But never heard him breathe. I took his tiny hand in mine, But knew he had to leave. I saw him enter this cruel world, But never saw him grow. I'll never see his face again, It's so sad to watch him go.

    You can keep your flowers Your rings made out

    of gold Your pretty diamond necklaces And, your silk and satin robes. Please don't tell me your " I'm sorry's" They don't mean much to me!! They are just empty words said after what you really spoke to me.

    Romance In a Hopeless World

    And with the world outside So black and lifeless. We do nothing but watch As life passes us by. Content in each others arms, We lie. Not a word is whispered, As your lips meet mine.

    The Man of Straw Father,

    father! The wicked Crow cries! In vast spillage my soul seeps out, out of the crack drifting up thy heart! With each drop of crimson love, betrayed by the now flaccid and old! Forlorn the dreaded creature that we would call brother? His absence dripping with distant lips, lips...

    But I know you're not and I know you're lying. you know I can read you, almost like a book. I can see inside, in every crack and nook. maybe you can't tell me how you feel, but I can feel your pain, and the pain is very real. But I really needed to say, that you'll never be...

    Childhood Dreams We dream of growing up.

    How were so eager to have independence and freedom. But nobody told us freedom had a price . How our  innocence escape and our demons come out to play. When we were young we were so naive, sheltered like a newborn baby. We wanted to grow up so fast and be just like big bro or...

    Rejected

    You'll never know the affect of your disappearing act, What you did was wrong and that's a fact. You left me barren and confused, Feeling like I messed up instead of you. This seems to be typical with guys of your kind, To use a girl and **** with her mind.

    Blur In Her Fathers Eyes

    Memories dim in, Flashes of another steps forward, No image of daughter, A image of horror, Her mother. Anger so vile, Fill with the poison, Dark hate like the demon fills those one happy eyes, Now each mark of blue, Now each mark of black. No daughter is there, No smiles...

    If you really wanna hear me scream, Then cover me in gasoline, Set me alight with the match of the dead, Watch as the flames burn a hole in my head. Come smell my weeping heart, Lift it high and tear it apart, For nothing can hurt as much, As not feeling your tender...

    A paw fits into another like a jigsaw fits together. Bonded with the force of love, It's unbreakable, invincible and unconditional. They join at the heart, In a world of insanity, Where the only thing that exsists is the love between them. A full moon glows and the stars twinkle...
