Good morning death So nice to see you. May I offer you some coffee, some tea, anything to impede you? To constrain and detain the obligation that brings you? Business. Yes, I know the routine.
He wasn’t the first, and wouldn’t be the last. Once again I put my heart on the line. I didn’t think about what you would go through, I wanted him, I needed him. Within two weeks I was alone again,
Theres a monster inside of me eating me alive. Words stabbing at my heart, thoughts penetrating my skin, and reactions making blood pour. If only someone knew or even wouldnt tell,
I wear a light blue dress with white Mary Janes and my hair is straightened It’s my mother’s big day we all look nice, she’s graduating Graduating… Damn… That was Iowa.
I remember his eyes, Blue as the sky. The way he held them tight, when they would fight. How he protected me, as he pulled me from the door, when the gun shots went off.
The voices inside my head keep calling my name Making me look around thinking I'm going insane I try to ignore them but they find their way back in If this is war I don't think I'll win.
My mother lived at the bottom of a vodka bottle. Her lungs crystallized from years of breathing tobacco instead of air. She wasn't always sad, I'm sure. But I never saw her smile
Trayvon, I'd like to know your favorite color. Maybe you have more than one, but it's okay. We all taste the rainbow one day So tell me its red.....like the dark crimson slowly seeping slowly from your soul.
When I heard that you were sexually assaulted, I mourned for your childhood. And perhaps that was not the best response. Because you have not died. You are still very much alive. I guess I’m just sorry
The air blew across the atlantic as the dark water drifted to the edge of our toes. Our foot prints had already disappeared from the rising tide. Mistakes from the past were forgotten
I pledge allegiance to the flag,Of the United Sates of AmericaAnd to the republic for which it standsOne nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.Liberty and justice for all...
She say "look back at it" i say look forward. Looking back means looking at whats used. Looking back at it means remembering the anger and pain. Looking back at it means feeling this way every time i think about it.
I hate this feeling that I have right now, but I know it all too well. My legs feel almost numb and my chest feels heavy, but I don’t know which is harder: inhaling or exhaling. My body is reluctant
Wat If I couldn't do it and couldn't changed my mind, Wat If I did feel rushed and out of time, Wat If it was my fault that things had changed, Wat If there was no way it could be the same,
Now that I see how you feel deep down The words I LOVE YOU slowly drown A gargled sound that means nothing forever I know that we can't ever be together Cause you and I are in two totally different worlds
Why am I crying... Why would I shed a tear with no reason behind it... Is my life leading me towards unhappiness, Or am I just shedding a tear for each person that suffers each day.
I was wrong I've been singing the wrong song cause I realized that true love isn't planned.
Stumbling through the darkness, Lying through the false teeth, Laughing and smiling happiness, Feeling desolation beneath,
I was delivered from sin but one thing is holding me back. My mouth meaning "those words" that come out. If i be lifted up. My..your life is not my..your own, i am his and he is mine. Its all up to you.
I am from sunscreen, From shorts and running shoes. I am from those sunny days. (Windy, hot, sweaty days, my throat like a raisin.)
We always en up staring at the stars. Wondering if we're able to pull through. It's always that on emoment where time is endless, seeing all things we've done to get where we are today. And it's hard and scary.
Silence. My heart beats Slowly rocking me back and forth. A whisper pierces the air Can you hear it? Of course not, I am alone. How I wish for one, Just one to break the stillness.
We live in a society That can't comprehend beauty, But calls symmetry pretty And isn't that a pity. We're told to behave, How to act like a slave. But the don't give us what we crave
It is what it is love, a predestined malicious love. Love without mercy a ruthless and vicious love. A war like love, a love where losses are casual. The loss of insecurities and distrust is actual and more than factual.
Most of us say we need it, but do we truly believe it? We are in constant competition to win the prize: job positions, checks written; Don't look surprised.
Thoughts and feelings reflected Never contested From the moments on the phone To the heartfelt poems Reaching and penetrating each others’ safe zone See she’s lost in time and space
Open eyes, open heart Never let the world tear me apart Hold my soul and my spirit, Because the end will come I can feel it Take my time down the road Cause it'll quickly go cold
He looked upon it with new eyes A beautiful place before him lied So much to do and a lifetime to spare Alone a boy without any cares
People ask me what I believe all the time.I believe that beliefs have reason and rhyme.The reasons for mine are the signs of the times;the negativity and number of people that are blind.
