    I think the ground beneath my feet was trying to tell me something earlier today. I felt it tremble, and all seemed array. The ground pulled me down below, I felt the gravel encase me so, I stopped fighting to escape. It was far too late. Down in a spiral, I did go. To which I did not know...

    I planted a seed, And I watched it grow beyond my wildest dreams. I was proud of my deed, And I was glowing like beams. I created this form of life. I nurtured it in strife. I was there for it always, Always looming in hallways, But it fell apart right in front of me. It died before it h...

    If black is white, then there is no room for grey. There is room for grey, Therefore black is not white. But this logic seems flawed. Orwell may have been speaking too broad, But what I take as white, Has somehow taken flight. Turned it black, To the point where there's no going back. B...

    He's alive and well, Just fine and dandy. I can't take the time to stop and dwell; To think of taking another shot of brandy. Isn't that how destructive behaviors muster? They see how our silenced feelings cluster.   We have to find joy in the hard stuff. Smile when we act tough. ...

    I dropped the ball, Mainly so I could watch it fall. I thought it'd bounce back up, Like it did so often in the past, But it shattered like a China cup, I didn't know it couldn't last. So what made this ball fragile now? So many questions, but I must ask how. I've dropped it before, Man...

    The lines we set down, Are bleeding into the crowd. We set our limits to limit ourselves, But in doing so, we prohibited others as well. We built these ways to keep each other in line, And now we're too desperate to pine, To get out of this box we've placed ourselves in. It's all quite cha...

    My voice is fading, But you'll never see me there wavering. I'll stand on top of this 'city upon a hill,' I'll do what I can, and I'll exercise this free will. I want my voice heard, But I know how things slowly slur. I want to pronounce certain change, Even though others will look at me, ...

    I heard a name, Saw a ghost, Hoped nobody else, Felt me roast. From zero to a hundred, I felt the heat. Felt things turn, Missed a beat. Panic struck me hard. The air left my lungs. A hundred to  zero, My heart lastly rung. The ghost disappeared, Left no trace for me to follow, A...

    Two stones, one match. One girl, no catch. Hearts heavy, Pressed levy. Something's gotta tick, Gotta keep on playing. The target waits, Patiently baits, Hit it and win it all. Miss it and lose the ball. One stone, no match. You'll lose; detach. Hearts beating, Nerves fleeting. You ha...

    Sing that song again, Tell me when to stop, and then, I'll tell you what I heard, Every chord and every word. The music moves right there me. It begs for a partner, And pleads for your soul. It asks you to join into the chorus; Fall in line with the melody. As it beats faster, It'll so...

    She's trying to impress the world; To make herself into something exceptional. Into something dazzled and swirled. But exceptional is convectional. She sees the bright lights, And think they have so much to offer her. Maybe even the chance for her to set her eyes on new heights, Or to make...

    Didn't expect to see him again, Made my face turn ashen when, He said my name out loud. Time stood still, My mind raced up a treacherous hill, Trying to think of how these circumstances came about. He was there in front of me, Not some hallucination of what could be, He was real, and ali...

    Does she not feel? Because emotions seem lost to her. Can she not heal, The wounds of her friend which she surely fails to cure. They can talk for hours on end, Talking of past pains and views, But she makes no effort to blend; To share and renew, That bond she discards, That she trivali...

    I'll show you who I am, Because your memory gave you quite a slam, Drilled you against the misfortune of forgetting, And I know how it must be unsettling, To have the world right before you, Memories that you once knew, And can't so much as recall, Because this disease is here for the long ...

    I'll keep my head down, Away from eyes, Away from sin. Shoot for the win, Cut all ties, Leave this silent town. Afraid to be noticed by those dark looks, The ones that pierce, And the ones that hurt. Gotta learn to assert, Become far more fierce, Make myself new, outside of their books...

    They'll look at me differently now, And say their 'awes' and their 'wows,' As if I'm more presentable to all, As if I'm a peculiar doll. But I didn't do this for them. I'm not the flower off their stem. I did what I did, Not to cast their bid. Not to get the looks and the attention, But ...

    He said it was time for him to sink; Down to the bottom he went. Did all he could think, Said all that he meant. Couldn't dwell on past events The way my thoughts ferments, Into something darker than what lays at the bottom of this sea. Where life begins to slow for him and me. Slo...

    Loved what I hated, And people said that it was fated, That my destiny was set, Only waiting to be met. I didn't believe them though, Told myself it wasn't so. Destiny is for the hopeful, I said. For those that dreamed all day till their head hit the bed. I saw what lay ahead of me. It ...

    He's los his will. People have fought and people have killed, Just to hold on to that. To grasp it in both hands, To hold it like a bat, Waiting to swing it past the stands. Gone is gone. Can't have this all re-drawn. He gave it up for money, for fame, for whatever you call it. A...

    I'll see you when the sun comes out again. Over the mountains when light slivers through. I'll be there smiling, remembering when, We were happy; joyful, just me and you.   Though those memories are before us now, I like to think it was the other day. Just yesterday when we both too...

    You have vices trailing your every step. And here you thought you were so very adept, Couldn't see what others could see, Couldn't be what you wanted to be. It's time to look over your past, And try to hide the shadows you've cast. The sun will be rising soon; Can't hide in this narrow coc...

    I'm sorry to say, She threw her life away. Can't go back for it now, Not when her head's in the clouds, So she'll be forced to go on without it; To hope that she can climb out of this pit. But we know that she can't. She gave up on hope so long ago, Said there was too much to woe, Too li...

    Everyone has changed, Or maybe I'm deranged. I am who I've always been, And I don't know if I can live in that same skin. It's too familiar now; Too comfortable, don't ask how. It's suffocating, But I know that I'm where I'm supposed to be. People depend on me. I am their constant when...
