    There is a moment… Just when the covers grow warmer. It's right before the room gets brighter, and the air gets colder. It is a single moment that can last for hours if you are not careful. Perhaps the alarm went off… perhaps it didn't. But there is always that still, silent, agonizing...

    You sang me the question, With a smile across your lips, Just a gentle, single action, That rearranged my grips On reality and all that I Have ever thought to find... You asked me just one question, And I've still not changed my mind. "Will you come to South Carolina? I&...

    And there it goes… the last of it's kind, Soaring so beautifully, but flying so blind… Beyond the mountains, across the seas Looking for something, but not looking for me. there goes the last, The rarest of kinds, The ones who knew me, Who'd known my mind. All gone on thei...

    "I will never stop waiting for you" A common quote, A common thought, A dramatic note in a voice... A foolish expectation. Don't you dare believe that quote. Don't you dare make me wait forever. Don't you dare leave me hanging here, Don't. You. Dare. I...

    The world fell down on my head, Knocking me to the floor, As it caved in and my heart exploded, I heard misery's knock at my door. The lights flickered and fell So that the darkness was inside and out, It crawled through my pupils and my nose, Closed my throat so I cannot shout. ...

    Said the words, but had no feeling, Took them back, And sent me reeling, Into a world That I don't know, With a sadness, I'm to weak not to show. Said the words, To make me smile, Let me believe, In my dream for a while, But took the magic, From the dream, M...

    If you won't fight for you, Then I will. If you wont open the door, I'll come through the window sill, Nothing will ever change, dear, If you live inside this house. If you wont love yourself, Then I will, If you wont let it out, I take it like the pills, I refuse to ...

    Waiting impatiently, For the day to end, So that I can stop hoping, Stopping believing I'll mend. Rocking just slightly, Back and forth in my corner, With mascara stained cheeks, I'm a well practiced mourner. I mourn the loss of so much, But the pain of much more, The belief ...

    There's nothing to replace it, The little things you do… The smallest of occurrences Reminding me of you. The smell of blackest coffee How you drink it every morn, Kissing me goodbye before, You're headed out the door. Sunny days and sunglasses, The aviators we always wear, ...

    The dreaded cycling starts, The circles, spinning fast. Running as well as I can, But I seem to be finishing last. Waiting for the finish line, To come and tie a noose, Around my neck, so cold with sweat, No hope of slipping lose. Head fallen into my own hands, Tears, they wash...

    You told me I was beautiful, It sounds too good to be true, And as you stood beside me, With all my heart I believed you. You looked at me with love, With the smile in your eyes, My happiness your greatest treasure, Drying every tear I cried. They fell and told me I was ugly, A...

    Kiss it all better, my love, I am pleading. Block out the voices, That cause my ears to start bleeding. Hold me together, While they rip me apart. I'll be okay, If you're guarding my heart. Pull me up off the ground, Brush the dirt from my knees, Bandage my cuts, ...

    I awoke in the night, To an arm wrapped around, My waist, my shoulders, And my head on the ground. I knew by the sound, that the breath was yours, Your arms held me close, and I felt secure... With a twitch and a sigh, You said my name, Your face so calm, it put my doubts to...

    Sleep. It's never constant. Like a bowl atop a pin waiting to fall over, it sways. Sometimes it tips and spills. We lose sleep. Other times it stays balanced. We awake well rested. Sleep. It is easily affected. It is less than inelastic... One wrong move or strong vibration and it will fa...

    Fear not, my darling, I'll stay by your side, All through the day, And long into the night. Hush now, my darling, The world is asleep, Come here, let me hold you, It's okay to weep. Believe me, my darling, This too shall pass, Life's full of suffering, but it...

    This is just a lullaby, One to keep my tears inside, Help me rest my restless mind, As I go to sleep tonight. This is not a need for sleep, A need for quiet, need for peace. This is just the last effort in me, To stop myself from going mad. This is where I say a line, Something a...

    I just want to be sane, To no longer feel this pain, To see with clear eyes, The blue hues of skies, That no longer hold so much rain. I don't want to hurt anymore To feel the ache in my core, There's just no distraction, From my reaction, I have lost track of the score. ...

    Sitting on the floor of the shower, Arms wrapped around my knees, Tears hiding like camouflaged soldiers, Among the water drops that already run down my face... The water attacks and yet comforts me, Hitting my skin with enough force to keep my eyes shut, But never enough to leave a mark....

    The war that's raging in my chest, the silenced bullets under my vest, I'll keep these secrets like the rest, To stop the next world war... Between your precious world and mine, there's a war that's begun with tI'me, If mines kept quiet we will be fine, I supp...

    I do not want you to leave. How could I ever say anything otherwise? How could you think I would ever, Wish to look into anything but your eyes? I don't ever want to forget. I want to always remember the truth. I want your face, always there and smiling. I don't ever want to f...

    I dug myself a hole. It was a beautiful hole, for I was intending to plant a magnificent seed in it. It would blossom into a tree... a flowering tree that would bring me beauty and shade and fruit after years of nurturing. I made it large, putting much time and effort into its construction. The rain...

    A slow waltz... the slightest beat... A drumming chorus, Like falling sleet, So hard to hear, Harder to ignore, The rhythm plays, Knows what its playing for. It slowly shapes, And forms the piece, It's picturesque, masterful at least. tears to your eyes, That drum...

    You have taken away my rhyme... I have no words that match each other. there is a place in my heart that is filled, Which normally held said rhymes... Now I sit with a pen and paper, Or the new millennium's equivalent, And I realize just what it is that has me. I have been struck with th...

    My hallelujah has no meaning now, The chorus fades away, My praises stab the sides of those, Who know what i want to say. My smile causes raindrops, To fall right from the sky, My laughter causes screaming, from those who've seen me cry. My dancing forces stillness, As they watch m...

    The blackness ebbs away... Just an oil, spilled in my ocean. It cannot, forever stay, though its poison is potent. It seeps into my blood stream, Tainting my whole core, Haunting my every sacred dream, I forget what I was made for... It tries to choke my voice out, With its polished mis...
