Back to insanity,
(Caused by your vanity.)
My flaws are shown to you through my heart.
(You've torn me apart.)
Bleeding out over your shoes,
(You've left such a bruise.)
Why do you acknowledge the cracks In the glass?
(You're letting your love pass.)

A feeling of regret,
(Caused by that devil brunette.)
Wonder why,
(Memories don't die.)
You shake and you shake and you shake and you SHAKE and you Sqquuueeezzzeee.
(I've always tried to please.)
There's no pleasing misery,
(You hate so fiercely.)

Back to insanity,
(Caused by your vanity.)
My flaws are shown to you through My heart.
(You've torn me apart...)
Bleeding out over your shoes,
(You've left such a bruise.)
Why do you acknowledge the cracks In the glass?
(You're letting your love pass.)

Try to understand
(My heart is a wasteland.)
What about yours?
(Is it one that abhors?)
This is who I plan to be,
(The killer inside of me.)
Can't take anymore,
(You, I did adore.)
Self destruction inside of you,
(What do you plan to do?)

Back to insanity,
(Caused by your vanity.)
My flaws are shown to you through My heart.
(You've torn me apart.)
Bleeding out over your shoes,
(You've left such a bruise.)
Why do you acknowledge the cracks In the glass?
(You're letting your love pass.)
(My heart is a wasteland...)
(Buried deep in the sand.)
(You've torn me apart.)
(Love is pain, love is art.)
(Love you, sweetheart.)

oh hahaha, Xenon does have you under her "faviorite authors" part of her profile though :)

I submitted a couple of poems to teenink yesterday, but I heard that it takes forever for them to get through....

I LOVE this! Elijah, you are really good! The ending gives me chills:

"Love is pain, love is art. Love you, sweetheart."

I'm favoriting this.

Really good. I like the emotion, and the power of repetition that you use. In answer to your question: I was wondering this myself and emailed teenink. The author does retain the rights to republish their own work, and it is still copyrighted.
Please read my writing? I'd appreciate any comments you have!

Yes I will gladly read your writing, since you have the courtesy to do the same. :) and so if it's copyrighted people can't steal our work?

Yep, no one else can take your work from the website.

Feb. 9, 2010 at 8:50 pm :
great. :) but they can't take it off of anywhere else too, right?

Like where? If you posted your work on another website as well, they'll most likely have different rules.

like Facebook, for example.
