Because you're goneI wanna be your rock, your foothold
so you can go into the world and know
you can come back home any time you want
your foundation will be waitin'
I'll welcome you to my safe haven
and we can snuggle so securely 'til
the urge to be free takes you in
go now, girl, you'll always know
I'll be right here when you return again
Like I Used toDoes he listen like I used to?
Does he relax you like I used to?
Does he care for you?
Is he there for you?
Does he laugh with you, like I used to?
If yes, he does, I'm happy for you both
If not, I'd like a chance to prove love's growth
In all these ways, and more.
You know, forever, I'll be yours.
Just like I used to.
In all seriousness
You're a silly girl, and I'm a ridiculous man
So why take ourselves so seriously? Why not just do what we can?
To the best of our ability; to live our lives hilariously!
Let's just be thrilled with our world, 'cause it's all that we have
And with each other; 'cause even this silly man
Knows he belongs with this ridiculous girl.
Tomorrow's never yesterdayIn the quest for change, for betterment
We often forget how life is best spent
Enjoying what is now, not then
Loving what we have, not what has been.
Cause who can say where we'll go next?
It could be worse. It could be the best.
The only guarantee we have is that
No guarantee lasts beyond the grave
And tomorrow is never yesterday.
say my world is yoursYou say you don't know
You say there's a chance
I say I'll show you, if you let me, romance
But I get befriended instead, after so long
What have I done that could be so wrong?
I only wish to love you and me
Us again, we can find what used to be
So let's build a world for us and ours
Lets build a world in which love can flower
Lets build a world that's right for us
Cause I trust the new us will be better than ever.
conciousness sucks sometimesI can't care about anything if I can't care about you
I try to suffocate my love with time and drugs and a move
Yet still I sit and wonder how this ever became my world
I love you more now, more than ever
like I always knew I would
Every day it grows inside and I can't help but feel and hide and try not to explode
I don't know who I am without you by my side
All I have is hope, and work to be good enough one day for you,
to try to get me through
can I ever be enough?
But I don't even want the truth
I just want you.
I do try to stay occupied
But thoughts of you still flow through my mind
It's always been this way for me but
Lately I'm reminded more of what used to be, not
What can be now
That bothers me, but there's nothing to be done about it
So I sit and type my thoughts and words out
Hoping someday you'll think of me too
And continuously then, as now, my love will be for you.
Only then I'll be able to share and feel okay about it too.
ah, the endAnd I still cry when I think about you at night
So far away with no end in sight
What can I do to prove we're the best together
What can I do to prove our love is forever
What can I do to end this purgatory
What can I do to end this darkest part of our love story?
Do you ever think of me still?
I never want you to know how I feel
I just want it to end and I don't care how
Just be done with it all
But it is worth trying more, I know
You'll always be worth fighting for
If there's still the least chance to be yours
I solely persevere so that one day I'll be here
When you need
When you realize that it's me you seek
The times we had are what can be again
Why can't it end
I'll never comprehend
I need you my best friend
Just let it end
She don't know SoulShe don't know what she want
She don't know what she has in front
Of her face and I know. I know I can be there for her
Love laugh and cry and when need deems take care of her
But What can I do to prove love is, will, and has been
When she searches for something that's lost deep within?
I know I can help her find what she needs - if only she'd let me
get down on my knees and
give in to what was and what needs to be
But I'm lost in her soul
And she seeks, unknowingly,
a sliver of the galaxyto the star girl on the edge of my tongue:
your hair dye is fading; you are a patch work
quilt comprised of sleepless nights and
the world around you romanticizes
the sadness that fills you like a broken well,
but you know they’re wrong --
having a darkness that threatens
to overwhelm you every single moment
isn’t glamorous at all.
you’ve started to trace your skin
with a knife again, itching to press
a little harder, to draw on your body
the only way you know how.
but you won’t.
because that will mean
that you’re just as far gone
as they think you are.
and there’s still a sliver inside of you
that doesn’t want to let go.
--the girl on the other side of your mirror
to the girl teaching herself to flyShe is trapped by a moonlit mind,
come silent in the night.
Surrounded by clouds, she is blind
to barren worlds; their light.
Searching for a sign, she survives,
although she knows she cannot thrive.
Searching for a sign.
Searching for a sign.
Anything to remain alive.
Her voice calls out, though no one hears,
screaming for redemption.
A shadow comes to kindle fear,
adding to the tension.
Someone please help me, she shouts, cries,
though on her cheeks, her tears, they dry.
Someone please help me.
Someone please help me.
But her screams turn to desperate sighs.
Weeks pass, and she remains divine,
still searching for escape.
Vines corkscrew themselves on her spine,
leaves curling up her shape.
Borrowing wisdom from her brow,
she learns to
For Love of the StarsMoon Mother sighs, somber,
beneath a laughing Sun--
his world is ending,
hers has only begun.
A Freshwater Soulyou didn't dream he'd tear blank walls, whip
furled fists, let partly tattered tales slip
early echoes, and allow
the lonely ships to sink, baring bows.
sail sea. river, remove
yourself far forth. prepare to prove
that you can keep a gruelling grip.
She Is HumanBlood-bathed warrior,
priestess and healer,
she was the fury
the calm and pity.
Heartbeat to deafen thunder,
yet drown beneath whispers,
she swept across worlds
tripped upon the same rock
hurtled through lifetimes
never wanted to die,
scrambled for maturity
defied to grow up.
Saw all on her axis,
chose blindness to the past.
Threw shields before enemies,
opened her heart,
refused to begrudge
forgot not her pride.
A Well Meaning LieSomeday I will lie
To everyone alive,
And they will never see
That the liar was always me,
Because my words of sin
Will only bring a grin,
To their faces
Which were always so very grim.
I guess I'll be ready
When the wolf comes slow and steady,
But I will not cry out with fears so heavy,
Because this is what a liar gets in the end of the story.
So even if I made you smile,
Just for a little while,
Try to hold onto it when you find out the truth,
That there's no joy in youth,
When it's all you can look back upon
While you lie forgotten and long gone.
You'll always wish to change,
Maybe then things won't be the same,
But isn't it strange,
That you would think that way?
I guess the good memories did nothing for your soul,
Just cause you all this pain while you're growing old.
You pretend it never happened
While you're looking at it,
And you complain that you want that feeling once again,
You want to feel that grin,
But you forgot about the lie
Told by none but I.
So when you're screaming
The Tangled Webs We Weave...
"Oh what a tangled web we weave,
when first we practice to deceive..."
Bob never really liked his job,
a clerk, in a room full of clerks.
Many a time he'd call off sick,
his unwitting boss- a jerk!
The sun was up, the air was fresh,
those eighteen links were calling.
Bob called in sick (a fevered chill),
his bold-faced lie - appalling!
But as it was his boss had plans,
clients that needed wooing.
So they hit the links at eight-o-five,
"Is that Bob? Who's he fooling?!"
Sad to say, Bob lost his job (sigh),
still unemployed, though he tries.
If only he had told the truth...
he wouldn't have been ensnared by his web of lies!
2. The Affair
It seemed to Joe she worked too much,
overtime almost every night.
He missed their quiet times at home,
he wondered, did she see his plight?
His best friend Ed had tipped him off,
Every little bitNo one noticed the empty chair
They were all busy
Telling each other what had happened over the weekend
People didn’t really notice the chair anyways
Even when it was full
But today is different
The teacher walks in
With a strange look on her face
And she tells them
The girl that filled that chair, is dead
It happened Saturday night
She was driving home
She fell asleep at the wheel
The semi didn’t even get a chance
They pronounced her dead at the scene
The shock comes first
She was such a quiet girl
Always at the back, out of the way, you know?
But not today
The chair is staring at them, with unseen eyes
And that’s when people remember
How polite she was
The small smile she wore
The soft voice
The tired eyes
The boy in front of her,
She used to let him borrow her pencils
Because no one else would
He didn’t even say thank you
Or always give them back
She would help clean out the locker of the girl beside her
Without being asked
Even with the moldy lunches at the
Life Of A ConscienceRain slides down the window pane
As I slowly go insane
Falling with tears, down my face
Slowly making an empty space
Fall out the window, float up high
Deeper and deeper into the sky
Dance in sunshine, bathe in clouds
Away from people and looming clouds
Fall into a lake, see into the water
Cut nets and save, fish from slaughter
Spiral up and down, with the waves
Follow the paths that have been paved
Follow the turning twisting bends
Never giving up until the end
Jump over barriers, crawl round mistakes
Sleep and take a decent break
People laugh and people frown
Taking turns to wear the crown
When it’s hard, together we try
We don’t want to say goodbye
We stand together, you’re not alone
The same down to our very bone
We light the day, comfort the night
And together we will make things right
EscapeHere, I lie.
No one near to hear me shake
Hell on earth is mine;
I'm taking the high road.
Escape in this neglected state
is hard to find, yet worse to taste.
I can't define the hurt inside me.
..take me further.. death defies me.
Induced, my sleep,
my mind's eraser.
The morning light begins to glimmer.
In her eyes I used to shimmer.
or more of never?
