    Fighting Fire with Fire, All from the same flame. Smoke creating a parameter, Heat burns deeper the shame. Firefighters come, sometimes in earnest. Their equipment lies unused. The gate works all too well, It's meta immune to the constant abuse. The smoke alarms quiet, Only a littl...

    If ever there was a more pernicious silence, Then that of a beaten heart. The simple joys always being weighted. One instant in constant replay. Disgusted anguish always tagging along, Disabling simplicity. The mask is intricate, Becoming one with the skin. Even in the safest places, We ar...

    Pained screeches, broken wing. Look for safety, anything. Life is fragile, easily taken. The innocence soon is forsaken. Little bird, helplessly hoping To revive the life you are groping. I find you lying, wings spread. On your back, already dead. Life was greedy For the needy. It didn...

    Numb, hardened, protected. Death can only be expected. After so much pain, An expressionless shield I gain. Keeping composure, standing tall. Experience to catch me before I fall. Keep the hurt locked on the inside, Blank stares show what is meant to hide. Deep in thought, but trying To kee...

    I lay in my bed Swimming in my thoughts. The sun reminds me That time goes on. Forget about the job, Leave the phone on the shelf. Pillow over my head, Forget about myself. Tears start to form, The pain will never leave. Your laugh is so loud, Your smile meant to tease. Sleep the p...

    I know as long as you stay warm, We will ride out this wretched storm. The subtle rise and fall, Only death does it stall. The blacks of your eyes Were never a disguise. Not once was i hurt by you, But now hurt is all you can do. I want the pain to end, Say goodbye my dear friend. I pull ...

    Writing a letter and a song, Might right what went wrong. Drawing a picture of your face, Keep the memories i can't erase. Singing songs that remind me, Bring tears that help unbind me. Looking at your clothes, I only wish you were close. Reading your letter, Is all that makes...

    When first I saw the letter, I thought I'd feel better. To know there was someone Else there before he was done. To warn him of his greatest mistake, Before his own life the drugs did take. But the bitter irony of every word, The desperate love is all I heard. You loved him enough, It ...

    I can see the lines Under your eyes. Look close, you're in disguise. Behind society is where you hide. Keep your true identity locked inside, Throw it out into the tumultuous tide. Turn away as it screams and cries, Hoping a sailor will save it before it dies. Pretend you are sincere, ...

    Dear Self, Where are you? Dusty, set aside on the shelf. Oh please, tell me what to do. Have I forgotten who you are? Left you there, afraid to fix your broken parts, Left in the dark like a rusty car. Can I jump start your precious heart? I tell you not to change for anyone, But it see...

    At first I hesitate. To learn is it too late? Your strings are so proud, Yet I fear to be loud. Have I waited way too long? Your neck is so strong. I touch your skin with my finger, Brush the dust or let it linger? I hold the precious pick in my hand, Carefully lift you off your stand. So ...

    The blue blackness blanketing, Like hands cupping a bug. Streetlights glaring boldly, Lessening the darkness's weight. Subtle rumble of your own car Flowing smoothly along the endless road. The air dense, frigid. Oxygen is flavored With the day's leftovers, Heavy. Watch your faint, ghostl...

    Who knew one simple letter, Signed and dated, Could make my eyes wetter. Written before his dated Death by an overdose. For the children who remained, In their heart his death hit close. And forever they will be pained. I can not look at your picture, Without feeling betrayed. Thrown in...

    On my way home, those memories came back to me, Memories that refuse to leave, No matter how hard i plea. Oh I remember the glare in the lights, Back in September, those inviting nights. And how the wind would tease my skin. i remember, Back in September, What i will never do again. The...

    Only in dreams Could life ever be simply sweet. Only in Dreams Is where Heaven and Earth meet. Only in Life Can the pain be felt Only in Life Can the blood be spilt Only in Death Can such an eery mystery lurk Only in Death Can the morbid genuinely smirk Only in a Poem Can words f...

    Your ignorance hits a spark, The fire rages inside me. All these emotional scars, you've made your mark. You carry on so selfishly. I don't care about you anymore. My tears of fury spill, because of you. I'd shove you in a cell, and lock the door. Then maybe you'd see al...

    It scares me to say this Yet the fear I lightly dismiss. But kid, i think I love you. And I believe you feel the same about me, two. Oh, How I hope you do! I know it's too soon to tell, But I know I'm already under your spell. I can learn to shelter this emotion, Even as you fee...

    Dear Apology, I delivered you regretfully. I didn't really mean you, You were just the right thing to do. You didn't mean anything, You just lessened the subtle sting. I wish i could have you back, For all the significance you painfully lack, But you aren't mine anymore. Yo...

    Oh, subtle kiss. Should you be this significant to me? Should the slight pressure of your lips still be encrypted into the affectionate part of my neck? I feel your warmth, as it still circulates my body. I still feel your heat as it stays, cocooning me. Closing my eyes, I am swaddled in your fragil...
