Your vodka tongue So toxic, so young Slithers its way into my thoughts Hides my fears Gives me ten shots Of pure toxic lust And I get lost, so lost In your pierced blue eyes
She was a willow bending, a tearful beauty rooted and serene   He was the lightning,                                                            much too bright for his own good strong and destructive
You see, the problem is I have treated you as if you are the sun. And you are not the sun. My life does not depend on you, you are not in any way crucial to my survival.
I wake up and see your eyes
I miss you.  I miss the way our snugged faces touched, our eyesight would soften.  "Look me in my eyes and tell me you don't want this to end."
Forever and ever Love ballads written proclaiming my undying love  Months of long, late night calls. Forever and ever Turned upside down So fast. My head is still spinning.
There's a burning in my chest And I can't tell whether my heart is on fire, set alight by the rush of energy transferred when he placed his hand on mine for the last time
I know we're strangers now,  but you're the most beautiful person 
He says, "don't you love me?" I say, "I don't know," I thought so at first, But now that we've grown, People will change, For bad or for worse, But growing apart,  Now that always hurts,
everything. Everything. EVERYTHING. EVERY. THING. EVER. THING  EVERTHING Everthing everthing verting averting averting eyes verting. verting. erting.
Here I sit all alone No one to talk to No one to relate to Wishing that one day I won't have to feel sad One day, maybe I'll find someone to love me Or just maybe be alone forever.
He will break your heart.
With all the cups you gave,
A stab in the heart from the blade you called love You said sweet things to my face then turn around and switched up Whats real & whats fake? In this time I couldn't tell
I have a healthy fear of lying To myself and those around me Often these lies They won't die No matter how hard I try I just feel like I'm dying.
Birth of new born killers high end thrillers sparse chances, taken with unease  beans and peas, mark disease and players can't see me 'cause I was never on a team in the first dream, I ever had
The stinging of my lungs as I inhale in  The smell of burning paper and fumes fill my nose The smoke disappears before my eye, becoming one with the air around it
9-5
i carry my right leg over the curb
Happiness and Joy errupt like a geyser at Yellow Stone,
You've gotten fingerprints, All over my favorite movies and songs
You were a cigarette break that felt like a for
I count minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, ye
I look into your eyes that are now so bright... My eyes are dark, with just a flickering light. Oh, how I miss you... I wonder if you miss me too... I don't understand what you see in her,
im done with you tonight officially you are now in my past and i will no longer regret the time i wasted spent  remembering you  and hoping youd remember me too.
Is the life that I'm living truly mine? Am I dreaming or awake? Dead or alive? Sometimes I cannot even tell, because I'm under love's spell. Love's spell, a thing, noun a spell that
Within my heart lay a gap that I cannot fill A gash within my emotions that lay unhealed This wound inflicted bleeds deep within me This stream of emotions wil never heed A cloud of thoughts loom in my mind
I flinch. False consensus effect strikes again. I'm not afraid of your touch. Fear has no position on the playing field. you recoil, my body like a stovetop to the touch.
i guess i knew i would shatter  if i let myself fall for you as hard as i did. but i did not expect microscopic shards of myself to fly through the atmosphere and land miles apart.
when he spotted the abandoned clothesline he knew it would be a safe place to hang his drenched fabrics to dry (safety was always his priority; practical thinkers are
When I was youngI would sit silently in my seatAwait my turn to speak whether it was given to me or notAnd more often than notI said nothing
The little things you say The tone of your voice when you say it Even though you are no longer my concern
You're all that's ran through her mind,  overthinking and lack of sleep, What was it about you that captivated her? Why was she in so deep? Two years ago she was different, 
  I want to kiss you. I want you to tell me it’s okay. I want you to say what you’re thinking. I want to push you off a train as it’s speeding over a bridge with a hundred-foot drop.
The layers of tears that I've cried have stung my eyes to that point of where seeing just becomes painful. I don't want to give up. But I'm being forced to give up. Or am I? No, this whole situation is fucking bullshit.
We all drink the world in misery as shuffled songs pass through cheap headphones
I'm hurting so bad... She doesn't know Cause she's glad I'm not in her show, I meant life, But its the same I want a knife No more of the shame
Tears don't mean sad or pain, Isn't even flow from wounded heart... Tears are way to express joy and sad... Emotion charged when fervently warmed... In Very sad or Ecstatic joy, 
They say nothing lasts forever. Now I know to this you'll disagree. You may say we'll last forever, but forever is what we'll never be. What would you do, if I said we won't last forever?
I don't know what I'm doing here.
The pounding in my head won’t go away The rush, the high, flying None of it will go away The rush, the rush, it’s supposed to end The night over, the day breaking --but fuck that why end it early?
I am a woman behind a curtain, and that's something that I find difficult to accept. Keeping lies, and secrets, I seem to always let them take advantage of every part of me my heart, my lips, my eyes.
Curled in a ball     sadness punching me in the throat like a bad street fightI consider why do I resort     to this same position     this same state of mindpainful sadness like heroin withdrawals
I remember your face on which there was pain and disbelief distorting your features beyond recognition when I saw you for the last time. Forgive me For I caused your eyes
I’m Broken up inside and I Can’t tell you what’s Wrong but I will Try to let you see. You’d Hate me so much because I’m Not what you dreamed and I Am so sorry but you
VII
Walking away from this pain, Leaving it behind, To try and see, A new light.   
I fight my way through your Loquacious verbiage And open facade Of a closed door, Searching for entry To your ego I give respect for your walls And take care To walk around,
Caught off gaurd her laugh made me stop, and pause, sadness surfaced from deep within my chest, slowly I turned to look, dissapointed I didn't find you there, I carried on  
Forgive me for always wanting to be in love, I know it sounds dumb and stupid. But I rather be in love and feel it’s warmth then hurt from the outcome Of its winter cold.
Do not love a boy who will not read your poetry. If you pour your heart into ink and paperAnd he refuses to read, he is not right for you. You are a freshman in high school. He is a senior.
A million stars up in the sky one shines brighter I can't deny A love so precious a love so true a love that comes from me to you The angels sing when you are near within your arms I have nothing to fear 
I loathe your addiction to cigarettesand the women you go to seebecause one is killing you
In this strange tangled mess I left us in, I found love. Or rather, I think I did.   I thought I loved you. I define Love as giving anything for the betterment of another human being.  
Stop. 
you ripped cupid's arrow clean out of my heart. i'm still bleeding.
I have something of yours I know it's been awhile, but better late than never, right? That's why I'm at your door. Not for you, but for me to move on. I cannot carry them for you anymore.
The moment I met you, My soul knew to stay away from you, For it knew you'd be the death of me. Of course, my heart felt what it did And I suffered the tragic consequence.
wreckless of the wicked makes me yawn
You strum the strings of m
...We should probably stop speaking because I don't know who you are anymore and my mother always told me not to talk to strangers...
When I look backAt our time togetherI realize what we hadI took too lightly, like a feather. The fun, the laughs,The smiles, your kiss-These are thingsYou can't expect me not to miss.
There's regret and remorse then trying to forget and move foward, but all of this time I'm thinking...
Eventually it gets old You get tired of arguing just to have a conversation Your throat is still sore from yelling at the top of your lungs just to make sure your voice is heard
When skies were always of a blue In times when I knew love was in me, When I was young and filled with joy, The world seemed beautiful and good, I loved a girl, and she loved me,
First impression Seems to be the best But why do I find it So hard to rest Late night thoughts  On my mind Its those same thoughts That take all the time Is time running out
The worst part is not knowing why. Was it he or I who did not try? Was it my height, my personality? Or was our relationship just a formality. Were we in love with the idea of us, but never eachother?
Sometimes I dream she’s dead, Blood flowing from her head, I wish I did it, One thrash head hit, Strung from a noose, Tied so tight, she’d never get loose, A smothering pillow over he head,
 1 Roses are red Violets are blue  your curtins are opend  and im watching you     2  Twinkle Twinkle little star i want to hit you with my car 
How many times have I fallen, Only to fall apon the floor. How many times have I given my heart, Only to have someone slam the door. My heart now covered in scars, Has grown tougher then is has ever been.
Your back was my view when people saw me it was you. I could sit here and blame you for hiding me, but I’d be kidding myself. I loved the association. I felt like I needed
I guess I didn't know how to love myself. The things you said you saw... I always did think you were delusional. For I am not beautiful, I am not worthy of Want.
Him
His eyes were an icy sea, glistening brightly, always welcoming.   His eyes were always filled with excitment, always filled with happiness, and I couldn't help wondering how I could do that.  
I imagine Life after death where we all reach enteral bliss Death is scary but the only reason I accept it is because this can't be why we live I pray god made his kingdom just for us 
I have galaxies growing inside me. I move on like light speed You are nothing more than A fleeting star blinking out.   The pain you think you caused is gone Down a black hole never to be seen again.
I've been granted a garden but I'm picking petals off flowers you never gave me to place on my face so whenI see you at Walgreens you won't be able to tell how red I'll be.  
Did you ever think about how lying is just another way of telling someone they’re not worth the truth?
Listen these days I feel enslaved in my thoughts left to rot in prison.
The intensity of every beat of my heart electrifies when we depart. You have been gone for so many years over this time I shed so many tears.   This emptinessI feel in my chest
I’ve been described as free, a description that stayed with me because I can’t be tied down, what’s the point. What’s the point to be an equal in society, I want to dance
My experience with love is  painful unforgettable betrayal Eight months making memories moments music Proving people wrong with clashing thoughts personalities
A broken heart and shattered dreams Left this man wandering 
'Twas but an hour, the brighest hour, the simplest, livliest moment.   Out like a flame, Out was my security, out was my thirst for life.   And I hated you
Every time I finally start to overcome 
You found me without searching,
I can't take this any more
I hope you know I loved you.  Sometimes that's all I think 
The path of life I walk is paved
Games of the heart are not easily won. Is there victory when the battle is done? Loss of blood will occur on both sides.
My heart swells when I read something that reminds me of you. I've kissed so many boys that my lips have turned blue. But I can not stop imagining what it would be like to kiss you.
This red rose has turned black and it won't turn back, Hard as the stone that was carried on the cave mans back, Cold as the night that shoots its vicious snow, Shooting through my heart like bullets,
You gave me your heart without blinking once. I took it passively And I suppose I have A screwed responsibility to keep it beating. But I'm falling, falling off a cliff.
it's not that i'm afraid of my mind, i’m afraid of what takes hold when i’m alone. the thoughts. they fight for their freedom. battle against the teeth that are their cells.
I just wanna go back Cause I feel like I’m in a trap I swear it felt like a heart attack Like I fell off track
I once had someone tell me that if you're lying awake at four am you're either in love or lonely, and let me tell you that's not the case because as I lie here all I can feel is the poison you've created coursing through my veins.
I never wanted to write this poem. But I have to because when I look at you, I see someone I don’t know. When you look at me, your eyes are dead. You used to have this spark, this twinkling flame in you.
And the marks you leave on me are no longer fingerprints, but scars.
Teach me to let go Teach me to escape Free me from my memories Free me from this place
We broke up two months ago Had a fight haven't talked since But I swear I can still feel your kiss Like it's tattooed on my lips.
Perhaps you can see, How perfect you are for me, Even though you are taken.   You’re one of a kind, Although to me you are blind, It is obvious how much you love her.  
Is it not enough for you that you've ripped my heart out already. You fucking broke it and now you have to step on every single one of the pieces too? Was it never enough for you to just know that I loved you?  
Helen Fisher says it is not an emotion. It is a need, It is  a hunger, It is air.   And yet so pathetic it seems, That such a sore which cannot be seen, Can possibly still be there.  
Forever trusting no one, and maybe you were right. They came around to change that. The cause of every fight. Fighting in waves crashing on the shore. The ones we pace across endlessly. 
Allow yourself to grieve Discover the way his name sounds when spoken from a throat tight with tears How it sounds thrown against the wall, shattering
To say t
Empty Rooms filled with--interrupting lightMissing floorboardsMissing stairsHungry CupboardsVacant VasesEverythingis Nowhere.No Roof
The words spilled out of me Like exhaust spews from An old worn-out car. “I do love you” Was all I said And yet I felt as if I just played some type-of Disturbed violin through my body.
Faded kissesKisses fadeOr rather vanish as it sits behind big ass lust in the shade,When we first kissedI knew it was going to be "it is what it is"Type of relationshipBut I let my feelings fall
We used to click. 
Different. That's what they say it will be. Different is like how doctors say you will feel a little pressure,  when really it's pain.
Your hands came up empty Your heart became dry When everything was set to be done. Everything that was once love became fear Now here I lay alone My body grows heavy but not enough to fall asleep
this passion for you  melted into these meaningless words on a page no one will read and the hours and minutes i spend bleeding these feelings and dead smiles
You held me   You held me when I was strong You held me   You looked at my face and told me how beautiful my smile was
These tears show pain, deep within is our anger too. If I cant stop this river, it'll overflow too. Maybe she'll come back, maybe fall in love too. Or maybe she'll run, from our love and us too. The love of our life, what did we lead to?
In a moment of walking around in the night, trialing on the floor we speak sweet nothings
FUCK! .....Manipulation...
Silence...
He is tasting every savory wordWith a clenching jawIf he doesn’t lower his voice the barista will noticeAnd the inky hipsters drinking their black coffeesWill become our audience
I get into the car and you begin to drive The only thing we share on our journey is Silence It smothers our words Chokes our voices Louder than anything that could be spoken
I TOLD THE LADY WITH THE SCISSORS TO CUT OFF ALL OF MY DEAD ENDS AND I GUESS I FORGOT TO CLARIFY THAT I WAS REFERRING TO MY HAIR BECAUSE BEFORE I KNEW IT SHE RIPPED OPEN MY CHEST AND SNIPPED OFF THE PAR
Remember the first time? I was devistated. I was lost in a cloud of dispair, And Darkness. It tore my world apart.   Remember the fifth time? I was hurt, but used to the pain.
I’m sorry things turned sour.
He's not worth my love, He's not worth my feelings. He's not worth my pain, And me getting upset over things. He's not worth my thoughts, He's relevant no longer. He's not worth my sadness
Thanks for showing me that I don't fucking need you, That I should not have been so naive  I should of known you can change your mind whenever you wanted That the sweet words you said were just to get you by
What If I was enough For you to want to see my smile once more What If I was enough For you to come back through the door It's not your dinner dates I miss It's the way we smiled in between our kiss
Cool autumn day spent Sun setting Sick with regret. Disintegrating will In overwhelming quiet   Departure inevitable Pressing together Embracing the future, skeptical
1. You got out of jail on Sunday.  The sudden realization that you weren't just a bad dream Cracks my eyes open, makes them bleed I was Alice falling through the rabbit hole
all i have is this yellow chair. it's dusty and chipped, and from god-knows-where. it was sitting in a pile of your shit. i think i stole it from you when we split.
The heart beats like a thousand drums When in the face of inquiry to another A yearning soul heard over melodious hums
I feel stronger now that you're gone sometimes I wonder if you think of me when you're alone I'll admit I've missed you but my grey skys are finally turning blue I drive by your house sometimes
ill always remember our first kiss, thinking nothing could be better than this. ill always remember the spark i felt from your touch, and i knew i was falling way to much.
I just wanted to be your dream.
The rain began in my brain, Its lightning strikes my heart. Its torrential downpour Takes sight away, Tunnel vision
I no longer like to look back, feels like broken bones and broken glass, tastes like the final hit when the remains are ash, smells like old books, rotting houses and burning cash.  
  Lift me from the abyss I have plummeted.  I'm falling and I've lost my rope.  Take away my agony as I begin to choke.  What I thought was water was really glass. 
You told me we were something and that at some point, miles would mean nothing, that you would always be there to hold me up when everything else fell apart You had the balls to tell me you loved me
My name use to be lover
I wrote you poems when my heart was at its best and at it’s worst.
I hit you up on the phone. For once you're alone. Invite you to the parade, despite our world being gray.   Have you wrapped around my finger, except I don't.
Here i am
You
You came into my life when I least expected it.Next thing I knew, we were together, and I was truly amazed by it.You made me feel alive, like if nothing else mattered.You never failed to make me feel loved and flattered.
We click into socketsBut our bones know betterAnd keep us from being spaghetti dinner.
The week before you left You bought a pack of eight sub rolls Like you thought you’d be able to eat eight sandwiches before you got tired of me But you only managed to have five of them And now
He’s got the kind of name that sounds good no matter what you pair it with He’s got the kind of fingertips that are maybe a little too soft
Life's too short To be wondering why I'm stuck with you. Life's too short To hold on though I can't break through. You ego is a barrier thicker than any wall. I guess you'll never hear me call
I remember when I placed my hand on your cheek And planted one kiss on your forehead Reassuring you that everything was going to be alright And when a smiled, I felt that the world was warm
We're here again Two sides of the playing field  No longer able to feel your warmth Just left to wallow in my memories  I can't say I’m surprised Always knew it would happen  But it hurts
By: Darlyn C. Lojero   one minute, you are looking up at the sky admiring those tiny specks you called distant fire another minute, and you see none
There's a new girl in townShe's here to take my placeI didn't expect things to turn so fastso if you don't mind tell her steady her pace
You never really listened to a word I said All of it just got lost in your head You say I’m something you can’t comprehend But all I’ve done is bend Over backwards for you And your issue
I am through with this game
This day is drawing to a close, the night is coming near, And somewhere out there stars light up, illuminate my fear. It takes a dense, steel wrecking ball to break through love’s embrace,
I hated Your big blue eyes when they looked up at me My heart would suddenly fluster Words would be stuck
It doesn't matter what you say, It doesn't matter what you call me, I will continue on. You can't control me, and I don't need you, I will continue on. You're through with me?
I'm just scared one day you'll find this too stressful. Turn back to the old you and being resentful . Nothings easy when you talking bout unifying two . Especially when it comes to everything being new.
August 9: I was undiagnosed mixed stateit’s in the new DSM, a form of bipolar and I called the suicide hotlineI was going to drive my car until I ran out of gas and kill myself
That song comes on the radio, once meaningful but now makes you want to cry,You see all the memories flood back into your mind's eye, You can't rip the cords out that you keep hearing in your mind,You wish that you could change it because you know
Rules. Are meant to be broken. Promises. Are meant to be kept. Secrets. Are meant to be told. Friendships. Are meant for you to hold. Relationships. Aren't always perfect.
My heart is very sensitive. It deserves to take a rest, Once in a while. You break, you buy it. But then remember to also fix it.
You don’t understand. You don’t try to. You don’t want to. You can’t. You won’t. Why should you? What am I? An experiment? Or shall I say a daughter?
You say you're fine  I know you're not You say you don't cry I know you do You act as if you aren't sad everyone knows you are. I didn't do this to hurt you. I didn't do this to cause you pain.
Love that was thought to be everlasting, Breaking right down the seam. Days keep on passing While life still feels like a dream. The lovers that thought love was true,
My heartbeat is frozen I to you is forgotten The love is cold now, and dead But you are stuck like ice in my head I'm cursed
I stumbled upon you by pure coincidence,yet, I believe in that momnet you devoured my soul.You were the answer to all of my hopes and prayers,another half to make my heart whole.
My heart will always want you In my world its only you My mind is mixed and you know it In my thoughts you are always in it   Youre the reason for it all And to be with you again Id have to give it all
Talk to me, please  Put my mind at ease   You claim to lack the time of day But we both know those are mere words astray   I yearn to know; what is it really? I'm eager to ask, but is it silly?
What have you been up to? On the other hand, a whole lot here. I just can’t seem to get over you.   You used to tell me you loved me,
One day done  another to be found let this one be gone forever from the minds of those around let them see the despair and troubles let them see me fumble over lying flat against the wall 
Sitting, staring at the wallsWhy am I the one who always falls?In the mirror across the room I seeMy bloodshot eyes staring back at meMy eyes skim over my too pale cheeksAnd see the tears plus all their streaks
The pain I always hide, I just keep it bundled up, I wont let it show, I wont take much more, But I can not let him go, And all these things I say, Im just lying here,
10 digits to never call again To never text To never press send 10 less headaches 10 less tears shed 10 digits not to think about lying in bed 10 less arguments Yeah, 10 less laughes
I turn in a circle and danceI won't even offer the past a second glanceWho needs you?I can make do! When it broke apartNothing weighed heavyNot even my heart
I hope you keep your door open I'll hope you continue hoping That life is so much more than this You will see this ain't a goodbye Since I'm telling you from now That I'll never, never forget you
I got a call about you yesterday, I guess someone saw you driving in your beat-up truck The one with the ripped up seats and unused ketchup packets What happened to college? It started a month ago
I'm lost in all our sweet sorrow You're so afraid that we'll end to be nothing But darling everything we have we borrow And your fear is like a reflective madness   We pretend our hearts are soaring
I lay under the sea of giants, standing tall and free, Tilt and see a mural of brown, red, yellow, and green. The overwhelming of colors I feel all mixed inside of me,
Time will not fix it I promise you that No amount of time Will bring it all back   Time cannot help you It's not something you can take It's not chemically designed
You haven't talked to me in weeks And I'm damn sure it's my fault or another As I watch the sky stratify Into blues from cerulean to robin's egg And the people I pass are just shades in a jaded life.
Burn my name from your heart And forget me, like I was never there Melt my tears that froze on your cheek On that winter day I cried for you   With eyes like fire and words sharp as ice
a fight,starts slow,anger ignites it,screams,anything to say what we mean,settles,then ignites again,the words spill out,the worst thing you've ever said,it hits her like a ton of bricks,you win,she cres,you try to apoligize,yet she still cries,sh
You were my rockBut I found you too stable,Immobile, grounding, so IShattered you -A man broken into thirty-three pieces,Mere pebbles of the boulder you were.
It's hard to follow the changes in you people around you affecting your moves look back and miss what you used to be you lost what you needed- unintentionally.   I'm sorry to mess up all that we were
You think you can control me. You try and make me something I'm not. Try and hide my true selfso I can act acceptable,polite, perfect, like a puppet. Don't pull on my strings.
  We all begin as strangers no matter the connection we feel instantaneous or slow burning we start out as strangers foreign to each other Our bodies are lands we have never seen
We met in the forestDrawn by the song of theMocking birdAnd light of the moonYou called me lion girlYour fingers running through my hairI called you star boyMy lips on your freckles
It could have been the dark blue sky, time of the day or the despair. These thoughts hit me like an arrow to the head. Be calm and hopeful, please love yourself. You're your worst nightmare,
Getting reconnected with an ex girlfriend could mean nothing but to my boyfriend it meant throwing everything we had built up away. He seemed so in love, so devoted to me and the feeling was mutual
  It’s all gone. You took everything from me. (Or did I take everything myself) My family, my friends… They slipped away. Vanished. Under your mind games. You cost me my life. My future.
You still haunt me As much as I try to pretend  You still have a hold on me Your smile Your hair Your face Your body Your soul It lingers Close and still to my heart
She really thought it was real this time She was stubborn that this time, this time he was the one So she danced with words on her tongue  And made him feel like a prince
Depressed. Sitting. Cut-off. I can feel the water go down all the way to my belly. Not eating. Eating shit. Sitting. Dreary anticipation. Will my babe forgive me?
You say you’re invested but you look far from interested You say you care, but your presence is never there For you I am a matter of convenience But you consume my entire existence
I'm lost. But I remember you. "I'll give up everything. I love you." These words were meant for you. I needed the fire burning in your eyes. Otherwise I'd be unable to see
I lay in bed thinking of you once again It's like you're filling up my mind With dangerously deadly mines You've implanted in my brain
You could feel the pain In his spoken words Every word hurt more than the one before He got so close to tears Ready to disappear  
I have wasted precious paper figuring you out And I know you know just exactly what that's like I'm sure you'll never spare a word for me But I would expect you've got much better things clouding your mind
I'm sorry that I am not strong enough to hate you.   You have given me every reason To walk away, To be destroyed, But I've never been one For playing the victim.
I remember sitting in the theater, my leg pressed tightly to yours. Hand in hand, palms sweating, You said my touch was electric and we became addicted to the feeling like the nicotine on your lips.  
Sparks had caught, Heavy love arose, Time traveled away, A rift then grows.   Flames lick the corridors of my soul, Warming me up, Then burning me whole.  
How could You? Maybe it was all in my head,  believing we were different, that'd we last longer. I see the way You look at her, it crushes me to watch. It's not me you watch.
When I think about you All I see is darkness And the pain inside that took over me.   It was all good in the beginning But when it came down to the middle of it all It was a blur of confusion.
The rods are all broken The curtains are torn The windows are cracked The floorboards are worn   So much time wasted Cleaning out dust You marched in with mud Hate and mistrust  
A beast.  I was strong, fast, unbeatable, Red eyes, hot breath, Power flowing like blood. You were my pet,  Your only purpose was to make me  Happy.  And when you failed
(poems go here)Things come and go, We sit and stare out the window. Thinking what we’ll miss, And would it be different if we hadn’t kiss.   One day there, here, and the next gone,
This is exactly whatI didn't want to happenYou and me, fightingI guess I knew, deep down insideWe'd end in flamesNot that I want that,But that's were we're headedUnless we can do something
I remember the look in your eyes At the beginning of summer, and Way your lips were sweet like strawberries When we first kissed beneath the moonlit Night sky. But now those strawberries have
I miss you, I want you, I need you, I love you. 4 different things, All said to keep me around, None will work, Not anymore.
when he tells you that he no longer loves you don’t cry (the tears are already coming)breathe in (small fluttering breaths)breathe out (gasping for air)and just listen 
When lust is greater than love When hurt is too much to heal It’s hard to stay in love, When there’s nothing left to feel.   When the pain of holding on Defeats the fear of letting go
It might be very true that I’m an afterthought A ghost whose essence fades like pallid morning motes of dust that dance on rays cast through the windowsill
we're getting farther everyday your gone and I need your touch upon my skin for that pulse that drives me
my little brother is becoming that guy that I dated in high school the one that loved me until the next pretty girl came along the boy that called me beautiful in the same breath he used to
What we had is nothing but a memory now And that is all it will ever be from now on
She calls me up This absolutely gorgeous girl And says to me, “Tell me happy things.” So I tell her about fresh grass on sunny days when everything is dewy and damp and bright
Words began slipping from the creases of your mouth. I tried stopping them, Catching them with my bare hands, But I couldn't stop them.    I never could control you.
I said I couldn’t live without you but you left me yesterday and I survived. You’ll come to me tomorrow but I’ll shut my eyes to shut yours out. You’re gone. I’m alive. You’ll park the car, reach for my hand, and say

Overrated and complicated It’s never what is seems Never on the same page I gave him everything
I always tend to bite off more than I can chew Struggling to swallow and stick it through The meal is always pleasing to the eye But never quite leaves me satisfied
it was the touch of your skin on mine the way your lips moved like they knew me as if they could have touched my darkest secret
My sorrow Like a tidal wave of pain, Pounding me so hard Its difficult to stay sane. The tumbling chaos of my soul, Burst up and fill my eyes And for a moment all i can see is darkness.
