    *I wasn’t sure on how to label each stanza of the song, so I put letters to organize it so that you can understand which stanzas have the same/similar rhythms. A I am trying to fight this pain. I am trying to look the other way. But I see you burning in my eyes Every time I close them. B...

    Verse 1 I shiver in fear As it whispers in my ear. The coldness Has overcome my soul. I pray to God To hear me, To give me warmth, To save me, And I wait for His hand to hold. Verse 2 I fall off the edge And lie next to death And wait for His voice ...

    Pressure That’s what I get That’s how I feel That’s what I see every morning when I wake up. Perfection That’s what they want That’s what they wish That’s what they expect every day when they see me fall. In the streets In the lights In the eyes of the judgmental In the hear...

    Verse 1 Just listen To the silent tears falling. Just feel it, The beating sound of my heart. Verse 2 I’m waiting For you to move your fingers. If you need me, I will do all the work. Chorus I won’t let you go, Hold your hand, Hold it tight. I won’t let you fall again. ...

    Verse 1 The sky falls on my head, The clouds forming a hat For me. The sun burns on through. I'm falling to ash Because of you. Verse 2 The trees join on in, Creating a conflagration. The ground shakes on end. We all fall in, Seeing death again. ...

    I’m floating I’m floating on air I’m drifting away. The wind pushes It pushes me down So I can no longer see your way. I’m falling I’m falling through clouds I’m screaming you’re name. The claws tear at me Their nails piercing my skin An...

    I stare at the audience. They all wait in anticipation, expecting greatness, perfection, Things I don’t have. They look at me. I look at them. I can’t breathe. She tells me to sing, to open my mouth and let the words flow, The woman who didn’t support me before, My mot...

    I wish I could remember What it feels like to love again. I wish I could want to hold her, Tell her I still hold her within. But my love has been replaced with pain, My adolescence replaced with maturity. My vision has been abused and tried, My feelings challenged and losing. I had hoped...

    I was confused for a while Until you told me that it’d be okay. I laughed for a while Until you told me it wasn’t funny. I was angry for a while Until you told me you were sorry. I believe you for a while Until you told me you loved me....

    I don’t want to go back; I’m not ready. I don’t want to see the faces, See the stress and pressure, The frustration, As if success will actually make a difference. I don’t want to see the smiles, See the jokes and the laughter, The joy, As if they’re really happy. I don...

    Is it weird to be in love at seventeen? I think so, but my two stepsisters tend to think differently than I do. They keep talking about this new kid at our school “who’s so hot and so rich and so single”. I don’t know what the big deal is, really. So, sure, he’s the President’s son...

    Suddenly, he stopped, arrow nocked in his bow, hand ready to release and kill, sober green eyes boring into mine, filled with curiosity. I could feel hesitation radiating off of his robust body as he stood his ground, not making a move to shoot or run away, away from the forest my family was hidden ...

    The food falls from the tray as it’s slid through the door. The stale bun hits my head, and I feel the throbbing pain that arises. I touch where the pain hit, a lump formed underneath my fingertips, and I try to remember what happened. But I can’t. I attempt to lift myself up, but I fail miserab...

    I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I didn’t pick you. I didn’t mean to hurt you. Please don’t feel bad. I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I made you cry. I’m sorry that I didn’t even try To make it better instead of worse. Please… Please don’t say that you h...

    To go high in the sky, that’s what I want. To be free, to need nothing but the wind against my face, the nothingness against my body. To fly close to the clouds, that’s what I want. To feel the fluff of air between my fingers, to let it glide between my toes, but with only the sense of freedo...

    Am I allowed to be angry? To hurt things? Punch things? Throw a fit? Am I allowed to raise my voice? To yell at you? Insult you? Tell you how I feel? Am I allowed to not be perfect? To distort my face? Show emotion? Cut myself to stop the pain? Well...

    Seven times. I have to touch it seven times. If I don’t my head will hurt. If I don’t I’ll twitch, I’ll turn, I’ll wait until I can. Seven times. I will touch it seven times because I have to. Up three. Down one. Up four. Down two. Up the stairs, I cou...

    Bullets flying People dying What’s wrong with this world? Lives threatened Mistakes regretted Why are we so cruel? Hatred has risen. Vengeance has returned. Hearts are given, Yet they seem to burn. Peace has been crushed, And it’s never coming back Until the world ends And the n...

    Verse 1 Your fingers touch my skin As I cry on your shoulder, Feeling the pain in my Vibrating. Your lips kiss my forehead As the tears stroll down. Now all there’s left Is repeating. Chorus This happens again and again. Oh, is there no end? I keep doing this Over and over. I want ...

    Verse 1 I sit on the sidewalk, Watching my mother in my arms. I cry in her shoulder, Wanting to feel her warmth. But the rain has washed it away. She’s gone with no goodbye. It’ll be a while till I see her again, So I still cry. I wonder why. Verse 2 I walk down the river, Thinki...

    My Life My life is a flower bud. It wants to bloom into perfection, Forming into beautiful petals, Wanting no ugly spots among its surface. My life is a forest, Growing trees to hide behind, Feeling like a maze it can never escape from, Wanting to grow farther but can find no purpose. ...

    Alone Verse 1 Alone In the corner; No one sees me. No one’s even listening. Verse 2 Alone Waiting for order, Trying to resist the pain, But I fall back under again And again, Oh, and again. Chorus I feel myself hidden? Like I’m not even there. No one seems to get it; No o...

    Verse 1 I am invisible To the outside world. I am a statue Waiting to return. Oh, I’m waiting and waiting For this to end, But it just keeps going on, So now I’m back to the beginning. Verse 2 I am a burden To everyone that sees me. I’m scared to open up, ‘Cause I don’t wa...

    Get Ready. Leg stretches to the end of the world, Then snaps back like a rubber band. Hands straining to hold, The white line stopping them from freedom. Set. Butt high in the air, Reaching for the clouds. Feet straight, Toes pointed down to the core of the earth. The loud crack sends the...

    When it happens I’m frozen. I can’t move. I can’t speak. I can’t see. When it happens no one notices. They don’t care. They don’t try. They don’t see me. When it happens it doesn’t stop. It just goes on constantly. When it happens, a tear drops, My feelings escaping me. ...
