    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...

    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.

    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.

    When all hope seems empty,

    There might be a tint left, Looking round and dull like a dooty, Like a person accused of theft. Sunrise give it nothing but clue, For it fails not to rise, Everything will be okay when all is due, At last, good fortune will be the price. Unexpectedly, the joy will come, Suprise...

    Chilly; cool weather is my favorite, And with you I wish to share it, Puddles of water beneath my feet, It is you I'm here to meet. Sitting in the rain, knowing you won't come, Brings back pain and makes me feel numb, The cool wind brings a shiver to my spine, Oh, what a shame...
