    Life for me has been an artist's first album. It's caused sleepless nights And has been a lot of hard work. And all I've really wanted Is for it to be perfect. But I've only ended up With one or two hit songs And not a lot of fans. People complain about every little mis...

    The strings dig into my fingers. I lose circulation to my right hand. I strum a simple melody-- down up down up up. My fingers move themselves. My lips whisper lyrics my brain conjured hours ago. I misplace a finger. Buzz. The D string yells at me. When will I get this right?...

    Close your eyes It’s all the same Can’t see the scars Just play the game. If you can’t see Then it’s not there. Don’t look at me. Don’t stop and stare. My world is dark, You don’t exist. Join me here, I insist. Just close your eyes And play the game, If you can’t see, ...

    Pulling out of the driveway in the passenger seat of my brother’s Mazda MX6, I didn’t want to think about what would happen in the next few days. We followed our parents onto the familiar road on which the four of us had lived for the past fifteen years. When we returned, it would just be the th...

    I know I’m not perfect, No where near good enough, But when you point this out to me, I just can’t believe In the house of God How could you be so cruel? How could you hurt others Who’ve done no wrong to you? When God says to love them With all that you have. You don’t know what ...

    I fell asleep last night with a song on repeat, Turned up as loud as it could be, Surprised when I found tears in my eyes. And I missed 11:11 last night, So here’s my wish… If I could wish for anything I’d wish for you and me how we used to be Fingers tangled together while we felt s...

    Unwanted pain fills my heart, As careless voices tear me apart, I watch the pieces of me scatter, Pretending that it doesn’t matter. I walk outside in the rain, Letting it wash away all my pain, I tell myself I shouldn’t forgive them, They’ll just hurt me all over again. But I’ve al...

    There’s something about being with you, laughing, That makes me forget everything. I forget everything I hate about myself, Forget all the commotion around me. I forget that I’m not good enough for you, Oh, I forget that you don’t like me Like I like you… Like I like you… This is...

    Like a butterfly she hides From people she doesn’t know, Gracefully flying by, Peacefully alone. Like a butterfly she’s fragile, Wind and rain can bring her down, This lonely life has made her frail, She’s weak when she’s on her own. Like a butterfly she’s colorful, Both insi...

    You tell me you had a bad day, And I forget about everything I was gonna say, ‘Cause my friends, they always come first, And I can’t think of anything worse, Than seeing them hurt. I put away my thoughts of my bad day, And tell you everything’s okay, Because I don’t wanna worry you...

    You’ve got another girlfriend While I’m sitting here Feeling like nobody cares. Wondering if I’ll ever get another boyfriend, Ever fall in love again. My shattered heart can’t take much more, Can’t take much more of this pain. Everyday I force a smile on my face, So that everyon...

    I’m not Cinderella, Won’t lose my glass slipper at a ball, And I am not Rapunzel, My hair’s not quite that long. I’m far from being a princess, And I haven’t met my Prince Charming, He won’t come looking for me with my shoe, Or climb up my hair to save me. The guy I fall in...

    Nothing lasts forever, Just like me and you, Nothing lasts forever, We all know it's true. Nothing lasts forever, No matter how hard we try, Nothing lasts forever, Even the tears I cry. Nothing lasts forever, In this game that we all play, Nothing lasts forever, In this life we ...

    Mirror, mirror on the wall, Will you catch me when I fall? Mirror, mirror on the wall, Do you know me at all? Everyday the mirror is my enemy, Showing me how the world perceives me. It doesn’t know my personality, And neither do they. Judged by my looks, my hair, my clothes, Inner bea...

    I look around my room And everything’s out of place, But that’s the way I like it, It’s the one room I can face. Out of all the rooms in the world, Every floor of every home, This is the one where I can come, And be peacefully alone. Though clutter fills my desk and shelves, And b...

    I look in the mirror and I see, Someone staring back at me And she’s sorry, For what she did Her face is blank, Her mind is wandering, She can barely think She misses him so much Closes her eyes to rest, She can’t sleep at all these days, I look in the mirror and I see, Someone who...

    Long days, Of going out of my way, To make others feel happy. Others that make my life hell, Others that say “oh well” when I run off crying. They wanna control my life, Cuz they’re already screwed up their own. Chorus: I’m gonna love who I want, I’m gonna be who I wanna be, Bu...

    She’s in the corner of the room A notebook open on her desk She’s writing. People give her funny looks and she wishes she could be invisible. Her soul screams, It wants to escape. It wants the world to know what she’s really like, Who she really is, How she really feels. But it can’...

    The aroma of rain fills my lungs as I breathe in deep, Forgetting everything for that split second of time, Mud squishes and surrounds my bare feet, And for that moment everything seems fine. Savoring that minute and everything about it, I tilt my head back and let the wind blow through my ha...

    The sun beats down on my tanned skin, glistening with sweat. I hear a sound, a clank or a thud, and suddenly a bright yellow ball is whizzing at me, at my face. I manage to get my left hand up to catch it just in time. Faint noises of the crowd cheering and complimenting me make their way into my ...

    Why do we always want what we don't/can't have? It's summer, we want winter; it's winter, we want summer. When you're young you want to be older, when you're old you want to be younger. Why can't we just enjoy what we have, when we have it? Some people may not have...
