A Teddy's SmileA Teddy's SmileI guess I won’t be coming home tonight, my legs, caked with dust and grime couldn't carry me another step. As I watched the shadows of a gruesome figure approach me, I thought about what went wrong on this dreadful evening. It was late afternoon when I finally left my friends and started the long trek home, clutching Mr. Teddy. His dirty brown fur and black button eyes held all of my secretes, and his red yarn smile gave me comfort in even the scariest of nights. The sun was sinking beyond the horizon as I passed the old iron gates to the abandoned insane asylum. I stopped and pondered my actions, I could either cut through the hospital grounds and get home faster, or I could walk the long way around and face my mother’s wrath at coming home late. I chose the former, and making my way to the hole I knew was in the fence, slipped into the darkening lawns. The overgrown grasses tickled my sandaled feet and bare legs as I walked towards the dreary building. I h
Jungle TunesSoft dawn light falls undisturbed on an emerald canopy,Birds, yet to awaken lie in their nests,The jungle is asleep,Dawn dew is just settling on the unopened flowers,A single soulful song fills the silence,The girl, sitting on a tree limb sings the ethereal song,Her feet swing to the beat of her voice,The rags she wears do little to hinder her young beauty,She is staring at a flower beneath the tree,It is a ghastly black flower,It's petals laced with red,It's thorns laced with blue,The girl's icy blue lips continue her melancholy ode,Her blank white eyes stare as the flower begins to wilt,Her skin, powdery white flakes and peals into complete nothingness,The last part left of her is only her tune, sighing in the wind,In the distance, a less eerie tune picks up,The jungle is awakening.
NightmaresNightmares,Dying in stars' tears,Ruby lips mocking from sandy shores,Liquid choking fire red hair,Lost in a twilight dream,A beaten Moon graces the sky,A rope of crimson lies around a delicate neck,A rock slowly pulls down,Begging release,One final gasp,Nightmares.
Tale of the Blind ManA blind man, one that cannot see,Can easily be healed by the singing of trees.But the trees do not sing for the blind man.They only watch him with callous eyes.The stone-blind man stays, waiting beneath the leaves.Slowly they change in shade, and begin to fall.The trees still watch him, and do not sing.Though the visionless man still waits,To heed the healing song that no one has heard.Seasons pass and the leaves still change.Blossoms bloom as birds lightly tweet.Under the tree, the blind man waits,Patiently hoping for the sweet sound the trees would sing.The trees however only watch him with softened eyes.They never emit a noise, besides the amiable songs of motley birds.The one who cannot see grows old with fleeting seconds.The trees watch him with pensive eyes, and all coincide to sing.As their lamentable lullaby is sung, the sightless man gaily smiles,And gently closes his lucent eyes to see a new day.
Wilted RoseShe wraps herself in somber liesStep out of the rain, don't drown my dear.Consumed by grief and doubt, she criesShe has but nothing left to fear.She squanders love as it comes her wayStep into the light, don't hide my dear.With a wistful plea, she begs him to stayBut does her frail heart prove sincere?She regrets letting him slip though her fingersStep out of the cold, don't shiver my dear.On the tip of her tongue, her lost love lingersThe sorrow foretold that they wouldn't cohere.Streams of scarlet run down her shoulderStep into the darkness, don't wither my dear.All she needs is for someone to hold herSomeone to listen as she sheds a tear.Silence becomes her, as still as the nightStep into the warmth, don't freeze my dear.To take that plunge off a bridge, she mightOnly to bring forth the end that is near.She carries on her tenuous lifeStep away from it all, don't weep my dear.Cutting her deep like the sharpest knifeThis state of apprehension won't disappear.Tr

I Wish There Was A Staircase To HeavenI wish there was a staircase to Heaven,A place to visit when you're feeling down,If only there was a way to see paradise in a reflection,Then there would be a smile on my face instead of a frown.I wish there was a staircase to Heaven,Somewhere to just clear your mind,If only God would make some kind of connection,This place is so hard to find.I wish there was a staircase to Heaven,So I could find those that have passed away,A place where people can relax in their own little section,An area that I would go to everyday.I wish there was staircase to Heaven,A place to visit when you're feeling down,If only there was a way to see paradise in a reflection,Then there would be a smile on my face instead of a frown.
COUNT THE STARSWhen god created our souls, I saw you.I instantly wanted to entangle us together.We rushed and mingled, flew across space and time.Then you were to be born before me one day. Our time together was limited.It was not my time yet, to be born, yet.Not even heaven with all it's honey and milk could coat or soove the pain of my troat from scratching tears out of need of you, my soulmate.I would make sure that if we ever seperated, or if we were not born to the same kind; You a flower and me a antelope, perhaps that I could remind you of our passions.To count my love, for my love, I asked God to make dots, orbs, if you would; Markers that glitterd within the vast universe. It was called Stars.On the earth, I asked God to make water fall from the sky and churn on it's surface to show the pulse of my love, for my love. It would be called Rain and Waves.I asked god to take my breath and fill the world with it, so that no matter where you were in this EA
CryCry for the living,Shed a tear for the dead.Cry for the words that are left unsaid.Cry for the children,They'll grow up so fast.Cry because their innocence won't last.Cry for your soul,It's darkened with sin.Cry because life's a game you'll never win.Cry for the elderly,Their bodies are weak.Cry because death is what we all seek.Cry for the lovers,Even the ones with a ring.Cry because love always goes with a sting.Cry for the future,Shed a tear for the past.Smile because life can't forever last.
She Is A StrangerShe is worthless,A toy to be strung along.A heartbroken loner,Singing her bitter, ugly song.She is useless,A discarded rusted tool.A hopeless dreamer,Even she knows she's a fool.She is alone,A prisoner of her own twisted mind.A forgotten princess,Happily ever after was never hers to find.She is numb,An unfeeling ghost.A lost, empty soul,Death is what she yearns for most.She is fake,An imposter pretending.A self-loathing bitch,Some wounds are never mending.She is giving up,Becoming another statistic.A desperate suicide,If there was hope, she must have missed it.
FragileA sharp object into the flesh the blade punctures my bones.I am fragile now.

I Still Love YouI'm sorry I'm not perfectI'm sorry I can only tryBut it hurts when you get angryAnd you don't say whyYou look at me in tearsSometimes you almost shoutThe frustration you bring upon meThe anger you bring outI'm mad because I careI want nothing more than to see you smileI just want to helpAnd believe meI'll be here a whileWhen you cryMy eyes tear at the seamsWhen you're sadRain clouds haunt my dreamsBut when you laugh or smileMy lips curl up tooYou still just make me so happy, I only wish I could expressHow much I still love you.
They Don't UnderstandYou're perfect in my eyes.Don't listen to the others.They don't matter anymore,They don't see the real you.The fun, cute, lonely you.They can't look past their up-turned nosesTo see the child begging for help,Begging for love.They call you weird,They call you stupid,They call you a freak,They call you every name they can think of.It makes me mad!How dare they?They don't understand,They have no clue what you've been through.They have no right,No right to judge.They don't know,They don't understand.You've been hurt,Physically,Mentally.Can't they give you a break?Of course not.Because they don't understand,They don't know,They don't care to know.But, I do, hun.And I'm here,I'll protect you,I'll heal you.Let me save you,Let me be your superhero.Let me take you away from here,Let me love you.Let me love you like you love me,Let me save you like you saved me.
Give InShe falls to the floor, with tears falling from her eyesHer scars are invisible but they're open wide.For everyone to see, it's obviously going painfully.And I'm not sure what to say, 'cause I've never been able to come through
But I promise you this, in a moment such as this;That when the fog clears, and the scars begin to fade,I'll be waiting at the end, 'cause you're a someone no one should miss.When the tears begin to dry, I hope to see the shine in your eyesI've run away just like you, scared for all the reasons the world could bareFractured under the weight of a thousand suns, I gave in without a bloody care.While the tears ran down my face, and my scars began to bleedI knew someone else was in need, for the aid I didn't have.So I promise you this, in a society as torn as thisThat when the world beats you down, and your scars open againI will be there to help you through, 'cause you're someone no one should missWhen the scars begin to fade, I hope a smile is w
BittersweetThe sunrise blinds my eyes again as I awaken from my sleep,Assaulting them with reality and chasing away the hopes I cannot keep,I'm stuck again,I wish that dream could never end,So I'll just pretend,That the memories don't sting me and my heart is good as new,And that it doesn't tear me apart to sit here and pine over you,But every time,I think i'm finally over you I find,You own my mind,Your bright eyes kindly smile down,In this foggy imagining,Your warm embrace surrounds me,Melting every doubt and fear,And when I eventually smile and realize,That I've finally found true bliss,It dissappears in the sunlight,slipping through my clenching fists,I'll smile and laugh and act carefree when you speak and look my way,And support you in everything you do, I'll make you think that i'm okay,An independant soul,That everything is under control,without your hold,But my heart stops inside my chest with every word you speak,And all these emotions and longings teach me the w
His Lone HeartThe only love I've ever knownsleeps in the arms of another man.I was young and I left my hometo fight and kill for my country.She cried and kissed me goodbyebut was in his bed later that night.Battling with only her in my headdreaming of coming home to her beauty.Betrayed I now must wander aloneA lonely soldier with a broken heart.
Lost HerosAmidst a pearly sea of white,Beneath a floor of green,Lay the keepers of the flag,To guard eternally,They kept us safe throughout the years,Pay homage now must we,To those who fought for our freedom,The saviors gone- Now seen.
