I've been fighting this feeling I'm feeling inside
I've been yearning and craving a way I can find
Somebody to love till the day that I die
Somebody to love for my dwindling life
Out Of The LinesYou can’t hear all the words
That still run through my mind
As I spin with the Earth
Falling out of the lines
I can’t colour inside
When there’s so much to see
So I’m damaged by pride
As it colours through me
Still you can’t see the way
That my words want to bleed
Like you can’t see the breaks
That still have yet to be
Gold / FeathersHollow homes with broken dreams
Where fallen angels gather
Where silent sounds and shattered screams
Still hunt for one another
It was a house of heavens own
Where gilded children lay
A place that restless souls called home
Following their final days
But golden skin and feathered backs
Can not of peace restart
With final steps in fiery traps
This place is bound unto their hearts
The PeopleYou let everything fall
Like it’s what you believe
While the writings on walls
You take time not to read
While we’re all standing tall
And we’re lining the streets
You hide out in the stalls
Scared your pockets might bleed
As it all comes around
To the paper you own
With silences sound
The only one that you know
But we’re still speaking out
Though we fall like the snow
We’ll set fire to towns
As our own voices grow
'Cause the people have power
And it won’t ever fade
It just grows every hour
As you feed it with rage
Not a soft spring time shower
It’s a torrential rain `
As bureaucracy cowers
We still fight through the pain
Opening Paragraph - New WIPI always imagined my suicide note would be beautiful and tragic. I thought it would be more than a note, more than a letter, even. I thought it would be a delicately admired piece of literature, like an ancient relic in clumsy hands. The reality of the matter, however, did little more than attract everyone’s attention to just how generic my reasons for wanting to sign out early were. I’d been nothing more than a sheep for my entire life. Following the herd and being pushed this way or that by an unruly bitch. I’d followed the trends and the fads, always hoping that I was trying just enough to enable my constant position under the radar to continue on. Even in trying to kill myself I’d somehow followed the trend, asphyxiation and pills were out, but cutting was in. People were cutting themselves for all kinds of reasons, and I was but a face in the crowd. However, I needed - like a select few did - to go deeper than a cut. I needed to feel it all rushing away; th
PathsYou've been waiting for angels to give you your wings
Simply walking in circles trying to get to a win
Killing all of your trees just to count through the rings
As you struggle to find what it is that you bring
'Cause you want to be special and you want to be more
As you watch those around you stand up just to fall
And the fear's working in from the world to your core
As you carry on forward in an unnoticed war
They all hold your hand till you need it the most
When you're standing on cliffs on the crumbling coasts
As you wonder what came from the words that you wrote
Did they fix all the lives and the hearts that you broke
And your paths crossing over and wandering back
To the over familiar and soul crushing track
Now the sun's coming up but it's coming up black
When you can't find your way the World starts to attack
You've been stumbling, fumbling through worlds in the dark
And all the pages you need are torn up into parts
Now you know all you need is the smallest of sparks
But it sti
ReignGet it beautifully wrong taking it day by day
Swinging free back and forth and I can't find my way
I still can't see the traps 'cause I'm stuck in the haze
Taking baby steps back from the progress I made
And I'm building the walls for my very own cage
So afraid I can't leave but still scared I can't stay
Now they're circling me and I'm stuck in this place
And they're chopping trees down just to get better aim
So I set myself down in the dry of the earth
And I'm asking myself how I'll make this thing worse
I am hearing the sirens like I'm seeing the hearse
As the rain starts to fall and it's feeding my thirst
I can't help but ignore all the things that I've learnt
And although I must go what I've got to do first
As the blood starts to fall and I feel how it hurts
I will douse the whole ground till it's ready to burst
I will take the light out for a forrest of flames
As they all flail their arms searching for who to blame
Because now it's my turn to stand up and take aim
Through the blur
Winter LoveLet us fall into the white
watching the world turn gray
we will burn candles in the night
let us fall, let us fall.
Cold winds blow it all away,
warm bodies in the firelight,
will winter's beauty stay?
A breath of snow stirs delight
ancient trees bow and sway
the way our limbs take flight
let us fall, let us fall.
How I Love YouHow I Love You
How do I love you?
Let me explain.
I feel a thrill up my spine
every time I say your name.
My heart is pounding in my chest
every moment that we meet.
And whenever you hold me in your arms,
you sweep me off my feet.
You are my breath and my life.
You are the only way I can exist.
I live for your embrace
I live for your kiss
Your nearness makes me laugh
and makes me cry
And if you ever leave me,
then I must surely die
A Place Love PlayedIt was late July or August,
When between the streets we strolled.
Felt the warm night’s breeze upon us,
As our bidding hearts were sold
To each other. In the darkness
Laughs and lusts went intertwined.
A spark, intense, relentless sharpness,
Love’s dagger struck my spine.
So through the lines that marked the road,
We danced all night, no beds.
Gave in to push and pulls bestowed
By chemicals in our heads.
You walked me home, I walked you back,
We found we couldn't leave.
Though hard we tried, could not detach,
Hearts tangled in our sleeves.
Between our homes, we quit this.
Half way seemed fair and sane.
Surprising, yet expected, a kiss,
The breaking point of tame.
Now time to go, it’s early,
The sun’s spying on our embrace.
She smiled, bright and pearly,
And left without a trace.
Though now we’re sparse, I promise
I’m left without regret
Of that night, late July or August,
When our lips first softly met.
Come la proie du tigre,
Et portée par le vent de nul part
Ou la paix arrive enfin pour moi, solitaire.
Je suis apprivoisée, mon amour;
Je suis votre et vous:
Her First ChristmasHer First Christmas
Remember, my readers,
She was born long before
The morning when Jesus
Was refuted to be born
She never sang carrolls
At the corner with friends
But she had to spend every night alone
Till the end
But now she lies blissfully
At my side without care
Grateful to her divine parents
For sending her there
Her eyes shine like the stars
That shine on that night
And illuminate my room
With their gay twinkling light
And her face shines like a moon
And rivals the one up above
And what does she want most from Santa this year?
"Just give me all your sweet love!"
ComfortYou'll be the thé that warms my fingers,
That warms me to the core,
And when my heart grows cold again
I'll simply swallow more
Of the fire in your eyes,
Like the fire in the grate
That crackles, casting shadows,
That dances, tempting Fate
To close her weary eyes
And let young lovers be
As she sinks into repose
And unbinds our destiny;
The threads will tumble to her feet,
A great tapestry undone,
And we'll sneak forward gingerly,
Collecting every one;
We'll weave them into mittens
To keep our fingers warm,
And with these toasty hands of ours
A new tale we will form--
One where we are innocent,
Where the lines will never blur
Between the people that we want to be
And the ones that we once were.
In this fantasy we sculpt
The winter winds won't bite;
Your love will be a quilt that shields,
Drawn 'round my shoulders tight;
No force will ever penetrate
The embrace you'll wrap me in,
A fortress built cheek-to-cheek,
Skin to sun-kissed skin.
We'll never be awakened
By this rude
