The girl who brought the lightDeep down inside
the inner workings of my mind
Where darkness had invaded
and was in control the time
It consumed every rhyme
And though i tried to hide
there's nowhere you can run
when your opponent is your mind
But then she came into my life
And for once I had a light
I could see through all the darkness
And i can put up a fight
I may still have the shadows
but in the end it's alright
because when i'm threatened with the dark
I have the girl who brought the light
Caring is Saving.I won't be here forever
with that being said
Are you happy with the last words you said to me?
Or the time between talks
the distance in our walks
How would you feel if you never got to see me again?
Death can happen to anyone
It can happen at anytime
Do you comprehend what i'm trying to get you to see?
You can make excuses if you want
put me lower on your priorities
You can even ignore me when im alone and in need of a friend
But when its my time
And I've walked too far
I hope your conscience will one day find peace
Because you'll feel the guilt
of abandoning a friend
And watched from afar as I crawled slowly to my end
The young soldierHe marched to the field
Covered in snow
If he'll come back
If he'll come back
Two broken hearts make a whole.How hard did he work
just to see your smile
Bought you all that he could
everything you desired
How much did she sacrifice
So you'd keep her around
Her mind and her body
her love showed no bounds
He went to all those parties
You knew he didn't like
Because he'd rather see you happy
Then go through even one fight
She ditched all her friends
Even ones from her childhood
All she wanted was you
She knew her friends understood
But his money wasn't enough
and his love didn't matter
Other guys were better looking
and their wallets were fatter
Her devotion wasn't enough
and be honest you didn't care
So many other girls to pick
And she just didn't compare
Now he's married with three children
His wife nothing less then true
you lower your head sad and alone
Realizing he was the wrong guy to abuse
Now she's married with three children
Her husband gives her all the love she can bare
Lost all your money and all those women
realizing she was the only one who'd still be there
A change in your heartI see the dark in your heart
through the light in your eyes
I see the pain in your flesh
through the crack in your smile
I feel the troubles of your mind
through the beating of your heart
I feel the haunting of your dreams
through your shivers play it's part
I have felt all your pain
enough to know you feel defenceless
And at times the weight you carry
makes you look and feel helpless
But, I feel the hope in your soul
through the quiver in your voice
I feel the change in your heart
through the fact that it's your choice
Violence/RevengeThe look in his eyes
Those two bright gems of blue
Look darker in this state
They lock-on to his former predator
His eyes have sealed their fate
The smile on his face
Isn't an expression of joy
Now it's a release of the hate
The showcase of change of a broken soul
Fixed by the pain that it had to take
His hands turn to fists
A symbol that his time is now
And nothing else in the world matters
If he can't break the shackles
His heart and mind will both be shattered
Two sides to every conflict
Both The predator and the prey
But be careful who you choose to hunt
Because a wounded animal comes back to play
Too late...I looked up at another pretty face
Into the cold, dark feeling in her eyes
Still seeing a smile
Always seeing a smile
They say it's the window to her heart
but they acted as telescopes to her mind
Only seeing darkness
Always seeing darkness
She locked away any other means of seeing her pain
Never daring to entrust her burden to another
Still carrying weight
Always carrying weight
She was someone everyone could turn to for help
She went out of her way to make you feel well
Only distracting herself
Always distracting herself
Now she has permanently released the weight
People finally realizing what she was
Only a little too late
Always a little too late
Tortures of the DamnedA smile that isn't friendly
A laugh that's meant to hurt
A joke with bad intentions
This life feels like a curse
A hug that feels half-hearted
Love engulfed in pain
All hope has been discarded
each day drives you insane
Hatred consumes your mind
Thoughts of love are forgotten
And soon you come to find
that your heart is dark and rotten
At times you begin to wonder
Why you were dealt this hand
Was it really faulty luck
or just the tortures of the damned
How to move forward without going back.You think with your heart
because you've lost your mind
You think with your mind
because someone's broke your heart
You hide all the feelings
You may have left behind
While you push your way forward
Towards another fresh start
Well perhaps this new beginning
isn't really so fresh
you've got too many scars
left on your mental flesh
A new start means
a whole new set of problems
and your mental stability
is something that it will test
So take the time now
No more running away
Go in search of your mind
that has gone astray
And i'll wait here
and fix what has fallen apart
These life long dreams
and another broken heart
Sole SystemSole System
Stardust means dying.
Withering ash of the flame,
And mine will not fade.
Are what I refuse to be.
I’m far more than that.
I’m a concoction,
Of blood, bones, cells and water.
The true, sole system.
Past TrailsPast Trails
The worst competition,
Is the one that always lingers,
It never truly comes in first,
But it seems to be fighting for more than second.
Words, words, words, words, these words
Only one can hope that we’ll never run out of these words,
Really, I’ll probably-- eventually run out of these words,
Despite the fact that there are millions of these words,
So…I ask….that you finish me when I finally run out of…these.....
What Does Love Look Like?What Does Love Look Like?
I often think about love.
I think about the shapes and forms it takes on.
And I believe it is all around us, even when humanity isn’t.
What does love look like?
It looks like the sunlight,
Rays that shine through the clouds,
Eternally keeping you warm and bright.
What does love look like?
It looks like death;
The dwindling of the physical embodiment.
Your hands may never hold each other’s again…
But the souls of true lovers will never fade, true love has no end.
What does love look like?
It looks like the tide of a sea.
The way it flows in and away,
Then back again.
Love is a like a tide that always returns back to the shore,
Because it cannot stay away for too long before it returns back to her.
Why wont you let go?Do you know what it feels like?
To feel nothing yet delve
into the darkness,
plunging into the unknown.
The unknown consumes you,
and you don't know
what to do with yourself.
Because you're just that detached;
isolated from everyone else.
You don't feel angry, oh no.
That isn't what you feel.
You just feel void, empty.
Like there's no emotion in you,
no one can contemplate,
or even understand you.
And you're just plagued
by this idea that
you brought this upon yourself.
All this sadness,
is because of you
and because you
wont let go.
And because you wont let go,
it'll keep coming back and
coming back to haunt you -
you'll never forget...
because it hurt you, that much.
Keeping secretsHave you ever cried yourself to sleep?
And if someone asked you that,
how would you answer?
Truth be told, I used to -
Just lie in bed and think,
think about every single thing
and how I felt about it...
what it meant to me.
But I'll just say no,
because I don't want you to know
about how weak I am.
And it is when all is silent,
the tears will slide slowly,
soaking your pillow.
Like a movie,
the scene plays out in your head
of all those times when you were
damaged and broken.
Replayed and replayed until
all the images end up blur and disjointed.
Have you ever cried yourself to sleep?
Yes, I have - many times, in fact.
But I'll just say no
because you're my friend
and if I were to tell you,
it would be the end.
Rocky friendshipsI have made some mistakes
So forgive me my friend
But if I could go back in time
I would do it again
Because the things that we do
Define just who we are
And I like what has become of me
I've come so very far
If you'd rather see me leave
Then i'd be more than happy to go
It beats releasing the caged bird
and waiting for it to come home
So when you miss me you let me know
If you care for me you let it show
If you need me don't try to hide it
IF you Love me don't let it go
All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
