    Must Stay In control. Must resist. Must say no. All the things I can’t have Splayed out In front of me All day long Embrace The twinge of Pain Deep inside you Listen To the voice Whispering “Do it; do it now.” And always Be ready With an Unwavering “No.” This is wh...

    They told me when I was little that you didn’t just wake up one morning and realize that you were a vile sinner. Yes, my parents brought me to church when I was a kid. You would be surprised to know that once upon a time we were the most perfect little family of God ever. Anyways, I was always tau...

    I listen to “our songs” over and over again, as I try to wrap my brain around this new reality, and try to remember what life was like a year ago. Looking back, I used to say that there was one night between us that changed everything. Together, we altered my entire mental state, taking my tr...

    You wanted to be my salvation With a temper that could break down a nation And a fight that would kill lesser men Constantly raging within. An addiction is a worthy foe As it tosses your whims to and fro Turning your mind against itself While your loved ones are tossed on a shelf. You tr...

    Why couldn’t you just leave me be? I can’t stand this new reality. Don’t force me to choke out the words If you’ll just live like you’d never heard. You can’t tell me these thoughts don’t matter And make my present world scatter After pushing me for them for ages And forcing m...

    Let’s just skip this part today Just shut up and let me walk away. You never deserved to have this heart But now you’ll always own a part. Your fragile words have always worked As your fingers drag me through the dirt; Your love has learned to define me But this life could never be. ...

    What is beauty Through your eyes? How can you see Beyond the lies? How do you know That this is love? My tale of woe Can not be enough. Why do I make you smile As I choke back tears? How do you reconcile The mistakes of my years? I’ve been around A time or two And every town W...

    The world’s creator is on my side Yet I’m drowning in my selfish pride I’m slowing down; Infection set in But I started this race intending to win Infection destroys all the people I love These fillers we use are never enough This void was created by mankind’s fall So man’s coping...

    He wasn’t The one Who ran From all Of his Mistakes. That was me. He isn’t The one Who threw Three years Of life Away. That was me. He wasn’t The one Who gave Each life A name. That was me. He isn’t The one Who left A life Of sin And shame. That was me. He w...

    Why? Why do you love me? Why did I love him? Why did she run away? Why did I give in? Why do you stay? Why is this the end? Why wasn't this my last day? Why do you love me? Why? How? How did I find you? How did you save me? How will we go on? How can this be? How did life go so...

    I don't like making promises; Too many things can go wrong. Sometimes you have to accept what is When your life is a sick twisted love song. You never know what people are going to do Whether they'll build you up or knock you down. What's the difference between Lies and Truth ...

    If Wisdom only comes from Pain Then this world could go insane It always wants an easy way To gain tools for a better day If Love is born in a broken heart How do we know just where to start? The past will never disappear In fact, it's what has brought us here Constantly building a ...

    You have no one else to run to And nowhere else to stay But I don't want to love you I force myself to walk away I sold my soul to give you pleasure Became your willing servant twice I think I'll seek out a new treasure Count to three, and roll the dice Your feelings have been ...

    We all push back the things that hurt us most We run from the pasts unwanted ghosts Yet when we try to shut off and coast We see the void in which we're engrossed Fear often ruins the lives of men It exposes those who can only pretend It tells subconscious stories of where we've be...

    I am empty Because I choose to be. I feel nothing Because my soul's erupting. My hope is gone Because all that I do is wrong. I am alone Because this house is not a home. I have fallen Because I can't keep crawling. I'm in denial Because Life is so vile. I am missing Be...

    My whole world is falling apart At the same time that it's built anew. I rebuild my shattered heart As I learn to breathe without you. Outsiders say I'm all for show; They don't see the change in my eyes. There are just some pleasures they'll never know Since they'r...

    Every person has their scars Reminding us who we really are Some are hidden, some are fake Some lie to hide a big mistake There's people who want to run from themselves Because they can't pass the blame on to anyone else And people who rely on duplicity Because they know what they c...
