    Take me to that pretty place The one with all the rainbow skies Take me to that summer field Where flowers and fireflies dance Bring in the light Let out the breeze Strip off the plating And find me some gold Show me a river that flows so slowly And sparkles in the sunshine Find me a shore...

    The fire burns so sweet The ice shines blue When opposites meet Lies become true Whose playing who Which is the jester, which the king Was it really Cinderella's shoe Is it really a diamond in your ring Or cut glass shined to the standard Another beautiful page turner Where the wh*** ...

    Nothing is allowed to be genuine. It’s a hidden rule in high school; the unspoken code breathed in by the student populace and locked like a band around their heads. Nothing genuine. It doesn't matter what lies in your heart, it matters how many parties you went to last year. How drunk you go...

    Love can be a bandage Made for healing Made for hurts Love can be a scissor Cutting paper hearts To scraps and pieces To trash left out in the rain Love can be a bridge Spanning wars Spanning races, connecting us Love can be a piece of parchment So frail and ashy So burnable Love can...

    When the moon is full And gleams like a lady's gems Under the candle haze of a ball And shines through the warped glass Of your bedroom window I beseech you To face her milky countenance And rub sleep from your eyes Behold the beauty of the sky And its scattered diamonds Do you reca...

    I’m just checking that you’re breathing With the moonlight on your face I’m just checking that you’re breathing With those long lashes on your cheeks You look so very peaceful I like to see that half smile You only wear when no one can see I’m just checking that you’re breathing ...

    I'm a whisper in the dark Falling on deaf ears I'm a shadow Gasping for one more breath Loosing my mind Numb all over Drowning in an ocean Of all the promises made That scatter like leaves in the storm Leaving me alone to face the storm surge Back against the wall Hand against m...

    You were my North Star, My guiding light, I could see your eyes shining from afar, Through the darkest night, You were my safety net, Always catching me when I fell, You were my ace in the hole, my safe bet, My shoulder to cry on in Hell, You were my life vest in the storm, And the ligh...

    “I hate you.” She says. She’s shaking with fury. Her lips quiver with everything she feels but cannot put to words. I say nothing. I don’t blame her. She has every right to hate me. I notice she’s wearing her mother’s coat, the thick green one with corduroy cuffs and big brown buttons. ...

    In his eyes I do not see the sky In his smile I do not see the sun In his voice I do not hear bells In his hands I do not feel like glass His skin is not tanned nor is he buff He is not poetic He does not recite ballads for me He does not put down what he's doing to have deep romantic c...

    Do they even know I'm in my own hell Can they sense the lie Behind "I'm well" ? I sit alone in the night Feeling intimately broken Nothing I can do to fight Too damaged inside I'm a bundle of scars Inside and out Walls but no confidence No voice to shout ...

    I thought I was important Special and cool I guess I was an idiot I guess I was a fool I thought it was awesome I thought life was swell But I’m alone once again Alone in Hell I thought I’d never falter Never find myself so cold But as they days grown shorter And the promises so old ...

    Maybe it was the way his eyes glittered when he wrapped thee present in Home Economics that made Alec's heart smile. Ty had never spoken much in school, and having just moved here last year, he was shockingly never gossiped about. No one had anything to say, he was quiet, got decent grades, did...

    Patching and darning and sewing the holes She sits alone by the window Her blue robes catch the dawn sun She looks below Where the day has begun Soon she will begin her job Mending broken hearts with her Glass sewing needles and a silent sob Every stitch is steady and sure She’s the Men...

    Beauty is found in your SCARS, in your SURVIVAL. Every time you face adversity and win, every time you defy the cultural standard of glittering falsehood, you shine just a little bit brighter. No magazine will SHOW you how to be beautiful, any makeup guide, or show on TV. Your BORN beautiful, what y...

    The rehearsal started as usual, chattering voices hidden by a golden curtain that fell silent to the beginning chords of the first song. "Alright people! We will be doing the Masquerade partner dance! Find a partner and get focused!" the director's loud baritone announced. Like an ant...

    The hallowed halls, Bare in blight; Torch's light flickers over the masonry, Bringing to mind from the dark pulsing waters of forgetfulness, The echo of laughter and joy, Of tall steel gartered men telling tales of yore, Over tins of ale; As children, dirty and barefoot, made merry in...

    Dear Grandma, I thought a lot about you today. Tomorrow would have been your anniversary. I miss curling up next to you in your bed, a plastic bucket full of sugar free candies next to your bed, how I hated the little white mints, and the box of ribbons you always saved. I remember the familiar a...

    We were supposed to be the best of friends This can't be how the story ends You’re my darkest foe When I'm happy you put me down low I can't do anything right Every conversation is a fight We scream and shout but don't hear How we got this way isn't clear Am I too ...

    I’ve got scars And you do to I’ve got dreams to chase And I’ve got fears to face I’ve got promises to keep I’ve got monsters to slay in my sleep I’ve got eyes I’ve told lies I’ve been hurt and kicked and down I’ve smiled and I’m no stranger to a frown I’ve fallen down...

    Take the leper’s hand And pull him to you Crush him in your loving embrace Take the child, alone and hungry And kiss her head Bless her with your love Look upon the anorexic with love And remind her she is beautiful Do not let her go Hold the cutter’s hand And kiss every slashing strok...

    Cigarette in withered hands On the dirty city corner he stands Eyes the color of a broken dream Remembers the battles he’s seen He coughs in the cold morning air He puts out his cigarette, nobody cares She’s looking for a friendly face In this empty space Full of strangers Full of d...

    I will hold close your memory So it won't dance away I will breath in your promise And use it to live I will cry with my heart As you slip from my hands Like a balloon from a child Come back, come back, I call But you are already gone You are already gone And I am feeling cold this b...

    His love is like that new ring Shiny with its lustrous gold Like a song the radio will sing Something new and bold His love is like those flowers He left on the porch that day Like those silent hours We love to waste away His love was like venom I loved to wear his jacket Made of faded de...

    Rain Rain Do not go away Rain Rain Stay, Stay I like the ink sky I like the rain’s sound I can’t explain why I smile when thunder comes ‘round I sneak outside No shoes or socks I open my eyes wide And undo my heart’s locks The blue rain The white fire It washes away my pain I...
