    A phone call is just too far away, I am falling from high up in the cloud. You gave me hope then feed my doubt.   She came around, And you took your dreams and got in your car; With that empty shot gun seat. ...

    We once said those words,  But do we even understand the meaning?  One day so strong and the next falling apart... Its been more than days, even weeks.  Its been months since I felt it, That heart of yours you closed off and made cold.  Was it worth it?  To watch the tears fall down my...

    The sun shining down, It’s a brand new day.   Meet new people, See new places. Be a new person.   After all you’re only in college once. So why not make the best of it. Why not go crazy?   Of course you should have fun with friends, Studying, laughing, partying. Bu...

    I was four years old, a custody battle brewing and the only thing in the world I trusted was my brother. He was never the best role model; he was usually drunk or high. Yet not once in my heart did I doubt he loved me. One day my brother came home with a new car, an old ’67 mustang. That night ...

    Walking down the street, You hear the sounds of a six shooter go off down the road. You duck just as scared as anyone else, All you wanted was some gummy warms, But they’re not worth your life. The cops come coming down the street, The suspect has fled, They see you. Bag and tag that’s...

    Sitting by myself, Always alone these days. Do you understand the pain…? I stand strong. Brave and…and silent; forced to close my mouth, To not speak. I have words that could change a nation. But I am not a man, so I have no voice. I have nothing, I don’t have a say. My life ...

    Abandoned. Left alone to face the rest of the world, It’s okay I guess, I’m used to it by now. They found me years ago. Screaming from inside an abandoned apartment, Starving, I was never named. I’m grown now, All the age of six. I know how to take care of myself, I have always kno...

    Poison drips from my lips, I slowly drip my head back as I drink. Slowly I wait. Shouldn’t it have worked by now? The way I see it Everything kills. Everyone dies for one reason or another. Why should I hang on when I have nothing to keep me here? When you took it from me again, That ...

    Faster and faster, Until the air leaves your lungs. You can’t breathe But that’s okay that’s the feeling you’ve been waiting for You dance until you feel like you’re going to drop and then you move on Dancing isn’t a hobby; It’s a way of life. Faster, faster Spin to the mu...

    Beautiful, lovely, love of the social class. She has all these friends who hold her up and love to watch her fall on her a**. In every pyramid she’s on top, Make sure you don’t eat or else you’ll pop. Booty shorts, cleavage showing, All the boys come on running. She knows how to make a...

    Music, The notes fall off the page You listen to the beat The melody that flows Tap your foot That’s the groove that you love to listen to Batcha The drums go Tap tap tap Can you hear it? I don’t preach, I play. I don’t go to church, I go to a concert. Life isn’t about s...

    Nothing but dirt, Dirt and darkness, You lay, On nothing but a pillow. Dressed in your best; Your makeup done just right, Your hair put up just the way you like it. This is peaceful. Lying here in the dark On a bed of dirt and rocks, Tucked away a few feet below; A stone etched with you...

    The world is a super-fleeting-rundown place You look around and think, Just for a moment what have I got here. Trash-upon-pollution with nothing in-between Its suffocating me The air has never been breathable it’s a lie, It’s always been a lie What would it be to take but a measly-little...

    It’s so loud, I can’t handle it. The pounding, Bomb Bomb. No body stops talking. Discussion is fine. Yelling is not. The migraine is taking over. I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe. I try and run But there’s nowhere to hide The pain is so real So alive it’s taking over It’s ...

    Running through the woods, Right behind you don’t look back, Feeling the breath leave your lungs, Can’t breathe…can’t breathe… Hiding behind a tree waiting for the kids to pass Children running screaming A game of tag becomes a race Darting, dashing, scurrying, chasing Laughter b...
