    He doesn't need me, oh no. No, he's got a new mistress now. And she goes by the name of Perfection.   She's victim to years of subjection; She's the picture of secretive dejection. Money and fame made her who she is, And all the glamour of her life attracted him to her.   I won...

    Let me run and let me hide, Let me say that I tried. Because everyone is laughing at me, And I really only want to be left be.   Place your hands above my grave, Etch in that I was brave. People will come to defame my name, But please put them all to shame.   I was all that a...

    I'll lie here and wait, A million years can go by, But I'll never ask you why.   I'll find comfort in the silent nights, And joy in your pearly whites. The day you come back to me, Is the day you will set me free....

    I want to be the giving hand, Give till there's none. I want to be by your side, Through this treacherous fight.   But I know that you've placed me on the outside, Away from the mess. But can't you see I'm tagging along for the ride, Or you'll surely drown in your handcrafted stre...

    And I'm not ready for this change, No, I'm not ready for the pain. You can say it's amazing, But everything is blazing.   This fire is burning me, Burning me from the inside. I bat at the flames, But I'm not winning this game....

    While I'm waiting at the bus stop, Listening to tunes, I can't help but see her, Crying, looking blue. I keep to myself, Don't want to intrude, But inside its all a guessing game, As to what to do. In my mind, Scenes play out like a film. There's a girl and a guy, ...

    I love you raw. Untainted, I sit in awe. I want you for myself. Only me, Yes I'm greedy. Your smile is my smile. Your heart is my heart. I won't let them have a piece, Cause you're mine, and mine at peace. Let me breathe you in Let me catch your breath. Let me match you...

    Today my cat is going to bed, In which all his days will be spent. It's a morose occasion to my family and all, But they say its for the best, So I will try to stay strong. Tears increase with the passing of time. He was my cat; An ear to those late night chats. He was more than a pet; ...

    I sit here amazed; I'm breathing! How my heart keeps on pumping is all but a mystery to me. They took away my life, Piece by piece until only the ventilator was functioning. When that plug hit the ground, This heart lost all reason to live. "She's dead, she's dead..."...

    We were dancing around, Every foot, every bound. Laughing we were, As people entered the blur. Her hips skirted left, As her lips flirted deft. She was smiling and beguiling. These things marked the beginning of the trance. The ending of our dance. Her mask began to crumble, And seeing h...

    I've kept you at an arm's length, Mainly because I lack the proper strength. Your love overwhelms my being, And my heart is constantly fleeing. I use to think that I could lean on you for support, But you were never really one to consort. You were my strength to tell you the truth, ...

    There I sat perched upon that fine log. Waiting with lustful eyes directed at the attention-saturated children. They knew not of my sorrows, my longing, my hunger. They stood there watching me with eyes that voiced the words of my father. "You're not good enough," they pleaded. &...

    Just keep on runnin' and runnin' Cause they'll keep on gunnin' and gunnin'. It's a world gone mad; It's on the brink of redefining bad. You fell into this set, No, no, you didn't ask for it. But every challenge you've met Left you groveling in de...

    I am strong, Stronger than I thought. I’m standing aside from your wrong. I will not let my mind be bought. There’s no price for this soul. It is mine and quite honestly, you’re rather dull. I am saying no. No to waiting. No to reaping what you yourself sow. I’m done debating. My...

    I cannot reach you past this looming moore. To think that our argument led to this, which it bore. My outstretched hand is constantly waiting, But you just just stare at me, unwavering, debating. Take this hand and let me lead you to the light. Take me into your confidence so we can all be in...

    So maybe you can see it. Maybe you can’t. It’s not really up to me, And quite honestly, I don’t think I can explain these things. Just don’t lose sight of what is there. Don’t choose what you want to see in bits. You have a way of missing the bigger picture. How you do it, I reall...

    I’ll give it my all. I swear I will. I won’t drop your pretty crystal ball. Why, there’s too much to spill. I’ll make you proud. This will be yours; this golden prize. I will scream and I’ll shout; I’ll be very loud. Hopefully I’ll be all the more wise. It’s right before ...

    Catching the flames, Is a dangerous game. Burns upon burns, There is no where to turn. They warned you about the fire, They warned you to lose this fascination with the pyre. But curiosity nags at you. It begs you to do, Do away with the old name, So you can get ready for the flame. Do...

    I don’t want to be the last one to arrive, Not when I’m the butterfly within this beehive. They like to say keep the outsiders out, And the insiders all about. They keep their hive on a first name basis, But when you’re a butterfly there can be no stasis. In this world we have our bees. ...

    The watchmen stalk us with their eyes, They stare and they stare, And scream the fie of all fies. The watchmen made their own justice, Was it correctly aligned? Probably not; it was far from bliss. Rorschach defied the norms, And followed justice to its core. Maybe people will one day learn ...

    I rejoice in reassurance, I bathe in the everlasting light. I am what I am, Nothing more and nothing less. I ask for more than I can take, And for that I am at a fault. I beg for understanding, But understand none of what is set before me. Wisdom escapes me at times, And at others I fee...

    She’s in pain, And I can’t physically help her. She’s stuck in this pouring rain, But I can’t so much as shield her. I can see her crying all alone, She can’t seem to stop. You can hear her crushing sadness in her tone. And I can see her braving the storm on the mountain top. I...

    This wasn’t the first time I saw it, But it hit me harder than ever. I cried six to seven times, I do admit. It’s impact on me will stay forever. He didn’t see any of it coming, But how was he to have seen the signs? It was all so becoming… But in the end he saw the...

    Listen to anyone and everyone around, Don’t sit back and watch them slowly fall down. They have a voice raging on inside of them, And it’s up to you to see them for who they really are; a precious gem. They are silently screaming for us to hear, But we just stand here and let them disappear...
