    Too many times I’ve been used I should have left, but I always stayed In my head, I was confused In my heart, I was afraid You made sure the lights were dim Turned the music up loud I needed you to listen But you were higher than the clouds I wanted to mean something But you didn’t ...

    In the faint lights I watch as you fall asleep Your eyes are closed gently, your heart softly beats Completely unaware of the magic you speak as your words turn to dreams in the midst of my sheets When I wake I find there's no time left to pretend; my dreams have turned into nightmares a...

    I wanted a chase, you wanted a thrill, and I needed a hero but you were my villain You make a great joker, it fits you too well You said I’d get heaven, instead I got hell I was your puppet, you held the strings I was your angel but you clipped my wings There was an evil my eyes couldn...

    Close your eyes and think back to the day before When our lives were simple and carefree But you knew it wasn’t what you were searching for When the winds whispered clearly, my wounds became sore And the pain seemed to sting in harmony I close my eyes and think back to the day before The...

    I reach out my fingertips and they're met with empty air because I can't find you there Circles dance around my head, they leave me dizzy with the thought of you and me I measure miles in the distant miracles of love closing my eyes, your soul I dream of I leave my heavy heart at hea...

    The words on your lips were gentle my angel sent down from above, You told me you thought I was beautiful as if you knew the true meaning of love There’s a hole where your heart should be beating, lost in heaven with her and with God, Here on earth lives a king full of courage, but the co...

    In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight The moon dances on the branches underneath the midnight sky. The streetlights flicker when I walk there on the road, the streets are full of strangers and I’m alone, and I walk until the morning. The rain starts to fall and the pavement...

    An open book with prequels, sequels and chapters untold, your actions say it's written anonymously I dealt you the perfect hand, but you'd much rather fold with the fear of striking out and losing I spend weeks song-writing and when I'm done you say it's out of tune I rea...

    Standing on the front line for the side of peace A fight so brutal, she falls to her knees: A fearful knight, armoured with brevity against her idle soul, gasping for longevity Her arms are white flags, they dance in the sky Her tears are the bullets she never let fly The weapon--his reason...

    I don't need flight reservations, stops in train stations or a ticket that says my name I'd gladly weaken my pride, ride a horse in July if it'd get me there the same I'd take just a few things and ride a butterfly's wings, She'd sing her butterfly song If she g...

    Ink fingerprints stain the palms of my hands And your terrified white words whisper along alleyways Masking my forearmed fear with hope For starlight encrusted highways of tomorrow Tingling sensations in my toes point me in your direction Knowing that I've taken these defiant steps before A...

    Chanting audibly through the winds, I Hear their voices. "Tess, we love you!" Almost believable, at age seven. At eight, she Nags me, "tie your shoes, please" and I Giggle, cause I never really liked rules. Emotionally stable, at nine, I remain Luminous with Bravery, and w...

    I could see the trees and vines from the edge of the dirt road we were driving on. The air was heavy, as were my eyes as I peered unknowingly through the thick fog. I stepped out of the vehicle cautiously and took another step forward. I brushed leaves and branches out of my path as I entered throug...

    Vibrant colors embody fireworks in midnight skies we knew before You’re hanging on pickled words I’m craving to say Hypnotizing me, instantly making me want more Intertwined hands and hearts and souls wash up on the shore Fuzzy details and LED lights were dimmed for the day But vibrant co...

    Awaken from your parting, No longer dull your shine, The world won’t sleep tonight Dust off your pinched pink cheeks Show him you’ll be just fine The stars will shine their light Tilt your head up to the moon Take to the clouds in flight The skies won’t sleep tonight Let your ar...

    I wish I could see the color in tears The fervor in breathing heavily, The lucidity of raindrops. I wish I could feel passion with my fingers So I could knead it down into my skin And let it resonate there, until I become great. I wish I could remain whole on why days When I question my exist...

    Cyclical tingling in my bones Steers me out of direction Demographics and Pie Charts show Paved roads aren’t in realms of possibility Lethal lemons on my arms Sting of frozen needles and blades Slicing the pieces of my entirety I don’t need them to be whole....

    If I set a blazing fire to the majestic trees, Would you feel as I feel Like the roaring midnight breeze? Would you curtsey like a lady Or take a final bow? Would you wrap your gentle arms Around my waist, somehow? If I lit them up, And they blazed so bright Would you fear as I fear ...

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained Without risk, we stay the same, If we refrain from trying things that are new We took big risks, we tried new things We reached new heights, we spread our wings And you see, in the end we finally flew Nothing ventured, nothing gained Without risk, we st...

    Twist your arm around my back, As you place your hand upon my head. I bounce to the beat, slowly up and down. I was listening: not a single word was said. I concentrated as you mocked me And your arm moved casually down My lower back. I twitched when you Shuddered without making a sound. ...

    Back and forth, through webs we roam, Our backs arched across a flat plane. For the first time, I don’t feel so alone. With a parachute-like crash, I feel insane And I realize the only thing I know is: I know not of what comes in the end, But only this moment murmurs, this Moment. Back a...

    I was sailing across the ocean when I saw a baby turtle. I don’t really like turtles, but I loved this one. I loved George. and George splashed freely so angelic; he was so peaceful, even with a big boat full of strangers watching him play in the waves. I wanted to pick George up and ...

    The city lights have raised you Don’t forget where you’ve come from Your brilliant urban soul shines through The streetlight flickers, it’s half past two My mind races as to why they’ve come On in the day; it’s a sign I tell you The city lights have raised you The florescenc...

    My bones ignite, I need no shell. Their voices boom loudly when they hide, you see: Far too superior am I to fall under their spell. Pathetic whimpers they wish to sell, They thrash their claws, but they can’t touch me. My bones ignite, I need no shell. I rupture my soul like an anxious ...
