    They say that it gets better But how can they know? It doesn’t seem to be changing, Not this steady status quo What about the people Who don’t make it through? What if I’m one of them? Please tell me it’s not true They tell me it gets better And how I hope they’re righ...

    One black crow up in a tree Two black eyes look down at the sea One shrill cry cuts through the air And the bird flys, leaves the tree bare One girl stands to watch him go Wishing that she'd been born a crow One black crow painting the sky Watching him she wants to cry Maybe if she coul...

    Look here, look there The enemy's in your head You can try to cut him down But this soldier won't bleed red He may shoot at you with words But in the end, you're still dead Look up, look down The target's in your mind And if you're looking to kill You mig...

    I was a bird, now I sit in your hand I was a wave, but I’m caught on your sand I was a cloud, but I’ve left the sky behind I was a star, the brightest you’ll ever find I was a dream, now I’m caught in your net I had a plan, but you’ve made me forget Hopes scatter to the wind and no...

    If love is only a shelter I’d rather dance in the rain Free to dodge the worries And free to avoid the pain If love is only a deal I’ll give, and then take away My heart belongs to me alone And that’s the way it’ll stay If love is only a dream I’ll stay awake through t...

    Winter, it weighs on me But those fluttering snowflakes Know how to be free Fall, it pulls on me But those painted leaves Are quite a sight to see Spring, it wakes in me But the plummeting rain Cares for nobody Summer, it burns in me But the soaring birds Are wild like I...

    Yellow for the sun shining through the rain Yellow for a smile, a feeling you can’t feign In the mornings, yellow is warm and soft Above reality, it holds you aloft Not asleep, though in dreams Not truly awake, it seems Yellow for a wish on a shooting star Yellow for a kiss to he...

    There's no one home, I realize, as I walk up the drive. I find myself alone so often nowadays, I'm getting tired of my own company. I was never alone at my old home, where there were memories to keep me company. Memories in the scratches on the wood flooring in the kitchen, memories in t...

    A garden of wilted words Not catered to for many moons A sky full of her lost hopes Let go like colorful balloons A sea of forgotten dreams Vanished, moments after waking And pounds of wasted armor That couldn't save her heart from breaking A backyard, now gone wild Where she sp...

    Snow shines like diamonds in the light And glows softly all lonely night Come sunrise, the brilliance fades to grey Until the next blanket of white My footsteps are fleeting, they never stay My words are muffled, no matter what I say Winter has no time to waste and spend With Springt...

    Dreamer, dreamer, far above Tell me what you're dreaming of? Are they delusions of dark and light Dancing in your head at night Atop your cloud, you sit and see All the world- so trapped, yet free Dreamer, dreamer, in the sky Don't you ever wan to cry? You're free of...

    It made it through the numbing snow And follows me wherever I go So while happiness is fading fast I know this hurt will last It stays with me as I grow Something of me I'll always know The lies might have been a clue Convincing me what's false is true I've grown so sick of ...

    Come now, court jester It's time to clean up your act Your bright colours and nonsense No longer serve to distract It's time now to grow up And set aside these silly games You don't want to get burned When they all go up in flames There's no chance you can juggl...

    All tin soldiers in a row They fall, fall like dominoes And soak the earth in liquid life Writing history with a knife Wreaking sorrow, weaving strife Silver tears are shed at home Our hearts, with our soldiers, roam And while they fall to the ground Oh, how our spirits spiral down...

    Like a message in a bottle You have to love and let it go For anyone to find it Lose it to the oceans flow It’ll toss and turn among the waves And you’ll wonder where it’s floated But you have to trust the token And always remain devoted The message will grow close to the...

    Your dancing smile The sparkle in your eye Lured me in Like a sinister lullaby Your smile said Hello, you must be new For I'd have remembered If, before, I'd met you Your eyes asked softly Would you like to dance I'd love to get to know you If I had the chanc...

    I hear their whispers before i even see them. The silence that so often possesses me leaches out into the drab school hallway. The sounds soften as i approach until only the whispers are left. "Poor Miriam..." "I feel so badly..." "It must be so lonely..." Their...

    What do you do when it's all tumbling down When you try for a smile and all you get is a frown When you've given up on your hopes and dreams And the rest of the world has too, so it seems When you say you're okay and you know you're lying And there's nothing le...
