    It is often the brightest stars which burn out the quickest. The light they exude shines too brightly, too strongly to be contained. They are filled with passion that cannot be tamed; it bursts from them in waves of heat. Passion for life, for knowledge. For specific things that captivate their tale...

    Sometimes I wish I was a child again. I wish that someone else was there to take care of me and fix all of my problems. I miss the hand that retrieved everything from the higher shelf. I miss the fingers that tucked in the bed at night. The shoulders that carried and the arms that held. The world wa...

    They tell us that we can't. Too young, too naive, too ignorant. We can't imagine. We can't decide. We can't know. And yet they tell us that we must. We must decide now the rest of our lives. We must know now enough to pass all of their tests. We are "the future&q...

    Sometimes it hits you. You’re moving on and you’re happy. You have other things in your life. You have your friends and your hobbies and the things you’re passionate about and you’re happy. And then one morning it just hits you. You wake up feeling like you’ve been punched in the chest, in...

    She was awoken by the sunlight streaming through her windows. Nothing about this day seemed any different than the day before and the day before that. It was another day alone. Another day without him. He had not been in her life for long, but he had made an unforgettable impact. It had been almost ...

    I can picture it clearly. Driving to his house in the pouring rain, just to pass by one last time. Taking a detour to the park, to see the place we always swam together, played together, sat on the swings together while he pushed me into the airborne land of the clouds. I stop. In my daze, I slowly ...

    Look at who I was. I was a little girl, playing in the sun. I was a child off to church. I was a bubble of laughter in the dandelions. The light shown down And shown over me. I was an innocent, Unaware of what life turns us into. Cynical, cold, unfeeling. Hurt, tortured, twisted. We no lo...

    I see and I wonder. Why do we pay so much thought To the comings and goings of others? Why do we need so much to be seen, To be heard, to be touched? Why do we wait so long For people who wouldn’t wait for us? I see and I wonder. I see and I wonder. Why do we put so much effort Into be...

    They sit and they wonder And ponder and ask But deep down their world Is just rose colored glass They think they know all And can call it by name But their eyes are shadowed And they see no pain They see all life's pleasures And none of the hate To them life is simply A play th...

    The light upon the earth Is shining, is flying Above the day dreamers And the saints. The light upon the earth Is glowing, is knowing The wonders of the world Without the hate. The light upon the earth Is fighting, igniting The evils of the world Untamed. The light upon the earth ...

    You left, I cried It hurt, I died You don't even care about me You laughed, I saw You walked, I called I tried everything to get you to get you back You were all that I had But what if I lived in my dreams Then there'd be no need for you to ever leave what if I stayed ...

    You pushed me down You watched me fall Picked me up Then repeat it all I never left You made amends That was enough for me in the end But I wasn't enough for you You did what I couldn't make myself do You dropped the act Didn't leave me time to get back on my feet ...

    Midnight sky and glitter stars Shining in the world above, Shadowing the land of love, Each looking at the same expanse. Embroidering the telltale skies, The stars a path for Lost at Heart. An ever moving form of art, They look down at us wisdom full. Why do we look up at these lig...

    A whisper through the dead of night A breaking heart too hurt to fight Searching for her fallen knight Who’s lost upon this dusty road On her heart his love’s bestowed And on and on her heart still glowed But now her debt to him is owed But he’s asking more than she can give Her...

    In a corner of the universe The sun is brightly shining. The trees are swaying in the breeze, The wind that’s slowly rising. Creating shadows on the land, The sun moves across the sky. If I try I can imagine Helio’s chariot up so high. I stand in awe of nature’s glory At ...

    Where does the time go When it runs away from our minds? Does it hide under blankets of snow And stay there long past winter? Where do the memories hid When you try to recall in the dead of the night And you think maybe they’ve died ‘Cause you can’t remember like you’d like to W...

    Each day I get older And that’s a scary thought. Another day is over And some memories I forgot But I know as I get older My experience will grow And I’m also getting smarter There is so much to know I hunger for more knowledge And I thirst to know what’s right But day and ni...

    Whenever I start to cry I think of the lullaby You used to sing at night To cure me of my fright Whenever I start to tear I think of all those years And the mess you helped me through Don’t you know that I love you? I miss you, yeah it’s true And at time I get so blue I wish that y...

    I look out to the stormy seas Watch petals float in the breeze The pyramids in their Egypt grand Rapids like a marching band Shimmering droplets of falling rain And standing out here it erases the pain Of everything in life that has failed Now my happiness has prevailed And I...

    The rain comes falling down Down, down, down, all around Covering my face with tears from the sky As I watch the rain go passing by I run through the soggy grass And see the world through flowing glass And as I wave the sunny day goodbye I watch the rain go passing by The droplets prick ...

    I take back all the things I said And all the times I’ve yelled. I just feel like your leg was out And cause of that I fell. I want to be your friend again But on one thing I’m not sure. Do I want you as my friend again, Or the friend you were?...

    The back of my eyelids, a screen unto me Seconds, by hours, by days, what I see The past is flashing inside my head While I’m awake or asleep in my bed Nobody knows to what future hosts And that very thought is what scares me the most...
