I'll be here by the ocean just waiting for proof that there's sunsets and silhouette dreams, my sand castles fall like the ashes of cigarettes and everyone here's make believe ~ Derick Sanders, Mayday Parade

Dead as death

Looks but can't see

Frozen in time

What could it be?


Always cold but always hot

Listens but cannot hear

No emotins does it feel

And yet it is near


Tries but can't move

Thinks but can't speak

It's face fixed on one thing

Feet on floorboards creating a creak


Coming nearer

What could it be

A wall or glass shatters

And the living statue is free

I actually found this while going through one of my old note books. I wrote it when I was only 10, so I apologize for the poor quality, but I wanted to share it anywayz. XP
