    I know how the world works,

    I’ve known it for years, Without all the heartbreak, Or shedding of tears, The world is cruel, And it never let’s you up, After you’ve been knocked down, And you’re ready to give in, It’ll leave you to drown, The world is like a child, It uses and discards, You are a...

    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...

    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...

    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 Imprint

    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...

    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...

    Your words danced in my mind,

    Your stories touched my soul, Your beauty captured my essence. Your darkness drew the feeble light within me. I was taken in by you and your everything; I let you seep into my every pore. Until one day you devoured all of me; Swallowing all of my light, And so you just vanished...

    Remember the days when a stick was a sword?

    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.

    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.
