    I like to think of the world, As an indefinite and somehow unperfected shape, No folds or edges, Yet not round, Because a circle is perfect, the edges strain to keep their place, But how can Earth be perfect, When it's filled with lumpy, For the most part, inoperative, Counterproductive to...

    The soft floral lights gathered above her bed pulse slowly like a fire, The eyes are drawn to their complexity, The beauty of their light, the flicker in their pace, And many lovers describe their love in this tasteful way, As if a fire can compare to the heat she feels, There's no degree on ...

    It's Christmas time I miss you most, You are not but one person but the collection of the hundreds, The hundreds of little boys and men I've collected, Their hands were never soft and they were dippy like me, But the softness of the lamp post I had kissed them under was soft enough To suffice...

    No one knows what you cry. They think you're crying meaningless tears. When in all honesty your trying to cry away the memories. Hidden inside your stuttering, you don't wish a dead love one came back to life, you don't wish your old best friend called you again, you don't ...

    So Mariah... how does it feel to be completely alone? Well...let me tell you a story. I went to an event. Did I want to go? No. But naturally, I had small hopes that I would go there, and SOMEONE would talk to me. Anyone. I go there, and I sit... alone. I watch people I know walk by me laughing t...

    What is it about my lover that sweetens my eyes so? What is it about his heart that lightens the hills of the valleys, that flows water upon the streams, that returns the flocks of the fields home? His topaz eyes with the texture of diamonds, the creeks mimic his eyes design. Envious with color...

    Green eyes wide with a needle inside, They lock onto my crippled wing, Your tail flickers, deliciously, Sway back and forth to progress your stride, I chirp my ounce of strength that remains, I surrender, With a push your off, Seconds in, your into my skin, Your claws dig deep, I choke and...

    I know that you once knew me, No longer can you view me, But I am pained to see you, each bright and waking day. Each bright and waking day I stare straight into your eyes, But, no longer can you view me, My love... you see right through me....

    The air was warm, the sun was warm, the forests and waters were warm. It was towards summers end. Everything, I mean everything, I loved... I needed, was gone. Violently ripped from me, almost like a child being ripped from it's mother. Somehow, I was filled. With emptiness. There was no si...

    That kid, I swear, drives me mad enough to slam my head into a wall. He's annoying, loud, immature, and copies every joke and word that slips from my mouth. But I swear, that kid, is worth dying for. After all, he is my brother. So would I be OK with some man I don't know digging sharp,...

    Loniness is the key to my heart, When I'm alone it creeps inside, As I bawl it spreads some more, And when I'm confused it fills my mind. Love's become a lie I cannot bear, It's just a word and nothing more, If I believe its otherwise, I'll surely rot down to my co...

    I weigh over a thousand pounds, I regret each pound I gain, For these pounds are not of my body, But burdens of my chains, They clink as I need silence, They bellow and they screech, I know these chains won't go away, The Lords out of my reach, With a heavy heart these chains I bar...

    When choices made form a path to pave, through heavens gates or to the grave, Rest upon this bed you made, For you were bold, and you were brave, Whisper softly "The debt is paid", countless were the lives you saved, There's no one on the signature page, and no one knew how much he ga...

    I flow on this beach with joyous glee, As I'm comforted with some queer company, A sly, clever crab crawls next to me, The sun shines bright, we hardly see, "Vasta! Vasta!" The strange crab yells, As we race the beach sharing glorious tells, Tells of old kingdoms, tell of th...

    You were young. You remember your childhood clearly. Some of us were blessed with vivid, fun, memorable childhoods. Some of us had broken, heartbreaking childhoods, but you were young, your ignorance and small amount of understanding of the world shielded you (ever so slightly) from the pain you end...

    Do you believe in God? Do you think there's some guy up there looking down at you sending miracles and hardship your way? Do you think there's nothing there? Do you think there's something else? I know the answers. Who can dare say that humans have no purpose? No reason in our...

    I tear my heart open. I sew myself shut, my weakness is... that I care TOO much. Papa Roach's song, Scars, is art within itself. With a powerful chorus, deep emotions and a fierceness not easily uncloaked, this song can send you into a raging rampage, or, if your like me, into a bawling fre...

    The one thought in the readers mind throughout this deep and ponderous book is, "You truly don't know what you have, until it's gone." The book takes place during the civil war, and many traumatic and intense feelings are poured over the top not just by the longing over Miss. Sca...

    I'd trip over a basket, I'd swim the great deep blue, I'd skip across country, I'd do these things for you, I'd sing loud in a crowd, I'd ruin my favorite dress, I'd flaunt my insecurities, I'd show the world my mess, I'd dive into a canyon, ...

    You are worthy, You are more then simple worth, You are good, Good and pure, like stainless wool, You are beautiful, Your shining face and blinding eyes, You are fixed, What was once lost, now is found, You are holy, God has blessed you with his love, You are warming, You warm my lonely ...

    Pleasant sun, warm my eager face, Moon of romance, fill my blinded eyes with the blue-ish aura of your finesse and beauty, Cool, soothing water, wrap around my toes and kiss them, And with your freezing tongue freeze them, Warming sand, prickle my feet with your sandy entrancement, World o...

    It rumbles and shakes, Like a fierce earthquake, Moaning loud, to reach the ears of the sun, You blush because you know, Deep inside, It was heard by EVERYONE, Hold your stomach, to tell it shush, For your cheeks burn bright and rose, Your stomach just groaned, hungry and loud, and now, Ev...

    I work, but as hard and as diligently as a farmer, Emotionally, I strain, Mentally, I'm brood, And Physically, I am torn and cut apart from the ruthless thistles of the world, From dusk till dawn my shovel digs a deeper hole, and the sweat from my creased brow dries as I sleep, I awake...
