    I Am

    I am a fierce wind and a gentle breeze,A roaring of thunder, a whisper in the trees.Cold as ice, and a red, fiery flame,A drought, a desert, and a torrent of rain.A calm, quiet lake, with water serene,Violent ocean waves crashing, a nightmare, a sweet dream.I am a fighter...

    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 Ledge Falling in love with someone is

    difficult, But loving someone you can never possess; That is even harder. Knowing someone else will Be hugging them, Hold their hand, Kissing their lips, Nevertheless, You still love them With every inch of your soul. A little part of you Bears onto the hopeless cliff...

    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.

    My Poem

    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...

    Helpless You’d be better off without me

    if I were dead, Unburdened by actions and things that were said, Helpless, hopeless, been through enough, Somebody’s eventually gonna call the bluff, If I died I’d leave you alone, I already know my chances are blown, That’s why I’m giving up this time, I hope you don...

    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...

    Sometimes I focus on everything bad, Everything that's got me thinking of throwing the towel in, Makes me want to jump off a platform of any kind. Sometimes we meet somebody that takes away the will to jump, And I guess I'm just that lucky, 'Cause I met you. So now I'm...

    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.
