    I just need an escape, I need a voice without fear I need a calm, quiet place And a day without tears. And I want it to end, The anger, the pain The swearing, the outbursts The cold, driving rain. Because a long time ago, The pennies stopped falling And the birds left the trees Yesterday ...

    I was sick, I was tired Like a burned out light I’m not rising any higher, Just can’t get this right. Then there came a whisper From the darkness of the night Saying ‘Do you surrender?’ And I replied: I have not yet Begun To fight. I can so do this ‘Cause this is my dream And ...

    Far into in the distance There stands a single hill Where the wind blows o’er the heather The poppies sway, Then still. There grows a single rose tree All broken, blackened thorns But once, It bloomed courageous Now it shivers unadorned. Once, a maiden came here And plucked a bloo...

    A message in a bottle Floating on glass water Dream-like on the ocean As a castle in the air The sound of quiet thunder And water torn asunder A fantasy of glass Within a fragile sphere A desperate, grasping hope, The survivor’s heart must cope Bobbing like a sea bird Atop the swe...

    If somehow I have failed you, Let it be known: how hard I tried, I do not know what could have ailed you, It was so sudden when you died. We are, none of us, immortal, Death comes for one and all, But that so bright, so young a flame Should be smothered with a pall! May your grave be st...

    Life is like a circus. Most people who are tired of their lives run away to join, and lose themselves in the wonder of bizarre oddities and outcast performers. A few ringleaders call all of the shots, and everybody else is expected to go along with the act and do what they’re told. Well, I’ve h...

    I'm wishing on a smile beneath the whimsey of the moon I've traveled many a weary mile hoping to make my dreams come true. But every wish needs a shooting star And I've yet to find one, though I've traveled far, So instead I'm wishing on a smile, and hoping it to be ...

    Pretty girls have it easy With a soft, sweet smile And the bat of an eye They get what they want. They never have to try. They are all of them So effortlessly Pretty. All of my life I wanted to be Pretty. But I was never, ever Quite Pretty enough For me. Painted fingers and toes Ribbo...

    There came a splendid ship Decked in fools’ gold and silver lies A grand and regal falsehood That drowned out the rhythm of the tides. Your eyes sparkled with visions of diamonds But I knew that they were made of glass. Despite all of that golden finery, I knew that none of it would la...

    Queenly and yet fierce, Regal, cool, composed, Her sharp, yet distant eyes once pierced The deserts of Egypt long ago. A remnant of her beauty remains Outlasting even shifting sands A shattered reminder of the queen That once reigned over the black land. Dark and deep Like pools of glass ...

    Congratulations, Friend, You’ve finally succeeded. When I met you I thought that perhaps You would be different. But you are not an exception after all. There’s nothing special about you, You’re just like all of the others. That’s what you wanted, isn’t it? I helped you when you ...

    I closed my eyes and felt the warmth of the sun on my face. I breathed deeply, knowing that each breath of air brought me ever closer to my last. My mother’s weeping pierced my rapidly pumping heart. Soon, the soldiers would come to take me away, their boredom replaced by blood lust. Even little O...

    You lured me into the shadows, With honeyed words and gilded lies I was a fool to think that I was free Before your flocks of crows blackened the skies. To long Have you held a power over me You will find that you have it no longer I see now that once I was weak, I know now that I am stronger...

    Not a whisper, Not a word, Nor a page to call my own, Lost without a friend, Without a song, Without a home. I wandered for an eternity In a cold, desolate land, Battered by sticks and stones, My dreams mirages on the sand. I could hear the others laughing And I ran , far, far away, Whe...

    The night is cool, The sky is clear, The stars are bright And dawn is near. I look up to the heavens And behold the sparkling skies, For every soul a star, For every star a life. When I was young People would ask me As a shooting star went by, What would I wish for? And I would say, A ...

    The wind that whispers through these ancient trees Has the same breath as the new sea breeze. For the moment the hourglass is turned the sand begins to slip away, And the sun that sets today Will rise again tomorrow. The stars move across the sky, Like pale, sparkling, dazzling gems, Ever ...

    When I went to sleep last night, I was friendless and forlorn, The rain outside my window, Like falling tears did mourn. It pounded the earth like the feet of soldiers Tired and battle worn. Hailstones hit the roof Like the bullets of machine guns And I asked myself, as men lay dying Wou...

    The clods of dirt pounded like thunder, And the rose petals fell like rain, Like the teardrops fell from my eyes, And I knew As I beheld that grey, bleak sky, That I would never be the same again. Your casket fills a grave But you’ve left behind a void. I try to be happy. I try to be brav...

    The aspens sway gracefully, Like dryads in the breeze, The same gentle wind Whispers through their golden leaves. I wish that forever I could stay A dryad maiden like the trees Dancing across the forest floor, Laughing with the cheerful spring, Quick and nimble as a deer, Swifter than the m...

    The last of Summer passes Gold and green and fair, Gentle wind cool and sweet Swirls through the damp warm air. It carries not yet the chill of Autumn, Though it is close at hand; Verdant fields laden with grain just ripe, Blanket the rural land. Pastures where cattle graze, Fields edged ...
