empty.run through the hallways
sit down in the crowded cafeteria
i have no appetite
no sound but breathing
i can't hear
can't feel my heartbeat
it's too cold for touch
no words on my tongue
I breathe but I'm not alive
just like this piece of paper
Darkness in CalligraphyThe pen is mightier than the sword
With your jet-black heart you
sear through the souls in my story
rip through the pages and burn them in
stacks (fire of water, drowning it all)
Your pen's nib cuts into the paper of
my once white heart, the
darkness will rule because
your words have closed my doors
shut me out from the light and
left me bare with the darkness
Now I'm sitting here, bleeding ink
and pondering heartbreak
because only sword wounds can heal
tape will never work on my ripped out heart
beautiful.We were beautiful.
But our separate worlds have broken us apart
embedded its shadows in our muted screams
So let it cut up our love and snip it into p i e c e s
And let tragedy crawl into existence with its wilted bamboo limbs, let
the ocean wind blow what’s left of it
and we will be inches apart, but still too far to be close.
so let our monsters look like us
with bloody ribs of ink and debarment, empty hearts swallowed by their

we are twisted pinkies and
empty passageways of
stained glass and weighed-down bricks
and spring glory and summer windows
we are deserts
bound by the gravity of your galaxy eyes
we are beautiful
we are silent
and laughter will be joyful when we
see our reflections blended in the pond with duckweed and clear blue blood
we are parted lips of salted ocean breezes
and treacherous as one

Once Upon A TimeOnce upon a time we ruled the world together
Once upon a time it was always and forever
Once upon a time we said we'd never fall apart
Once upon a time you were half of my heart
Once upon a time you said you couldn't let me go
Once upon a time there was nothing we didn't know
That once upon a time is now just a picture to burn
That once upon a time another curse that we have earned
stargazersShe lives in a river of stars, intricately weaved into the eyes of Eden
the way his roses find beauty in her bramble-berry eyes
watching the sun sink into the ocean
waiting for the night sky
I will always remember him, eyes dancing, hiding her broken heart
Rainwater, hurricanes of lonely gray spilling onto the cloudy sidewalk. The stars are gone tonight.
Tick Tock DearieTick tock,
Goes the clock on the wall.
Urging me to fall.
It says it's my time to die.
Sunlight: SunraysSunlight; Sunrays
Bring the rain clouds back to play
Bring the gloom back here today
Keep the sky a cloud-filled gray
Please stay away
No one wants you here today
Have the rain clouds here to stay
Let the rain fall in every way
Why do you stay?
Where is the sadness? Where is the grey?
Why is it a happy day?
Why do you smile at me this way?
Come back again
Make the water never end
Wash away all of the sin
Help me never stay locked in
Fall on my skin
Keep the happiness within
Block out everywhere I've been
Never asking where, or when
Break me down within
Pull out all my scaring sin
Find my deepest fears hidden
Help me become forgiven
Please stay away
Have the rain come out today
Break me down in every way
Have the rain wash me away
Can't Anyone Try?Can't anyone try?
Doesn't anyone see?
The girl on the outside,
Isn't really me...
I hide behind this wall,
Even though its clear as glass.
May edges stay blurred,
And no one can see past...
They all see me in shadows,
Yet I stand here in pure light.
I scream in your face,
Yet all that reaches is, "I'm alright..."
Can't anyone see?
Is everyone blind?
Is the true me,
Really too hard to find...?
What I WantYou know what I want?
The one thing I need?
I want for someone to fight
Someone who will fight for me.
I want someone willing
Someone who will say
"I love you for you"
Someone who will be constant and stay
I need someone to pull me out
A hand to reach for
I need a hug to be given
Not asked for
I want someone who understands
That they can't know it all
I need someone to be there
When I'm on top and when I fall
Someone to fight for me
Someone to hold my hand
Someone whom I can rely
Someone who readily stands
I need to find this person
What they call "The One"
I need to continue my search
But I can't forever run...
I want to quit
But I need you here
I fall further down
But I want to be there
You know what I want?
I want a true friend
I need a stand-by
I want someone to be there 'till the end
Hiding PlaceSometimes the best place to stay unseen is in plain sight.
You remain visible,
Yet no one can find you...
You can see them,
Yet they can't see you...
By hiding here you are in the place that is easiest to see,
But nobody looks for...
The most obvious place
Is the least expected because its expected.
Yet somehow, the hardest place to go
Is completely expected.
Be the unexpected
by hiding in the expected
And when you search for others,
Use the same tactics in which you hide
So they don't get left in the dark,
Like you so often do...
Fairytale PrisonerShe pulled the trigger
In the opposite direction
Her body was unscathed
She can't see her own refection
Her screams did not reach
She wass caught in the devil's snare
She found her body bleeding
And gave herself a menacing glare
Release her from her cage
So she may leave humanity behind
She forgot her old life
And was given a brand new mind
Her fate started to rot away
She sufferd with a smile on her face
Nothing to ever welcome her
To this unforgetable place
Freaks ShowFingers scratching at my wrist,
Wanting a beautiful kiss.
The lips they know too well,
Gradually I feel my mind compelling,
Back to almost a month ago,
When I was still apart of the freak show.
Dancing on the stage,
With a pointy blade,
Focused on a luscious vein.
The oh's and ah's of the crowd causes pain,
I finally notice how different I really am.
I finally notice there is nothing I can,
Do to pick up the glass without getting cut.
I finally noticed that all I am is a nut.
I finally noticed that deep down I'm in the freak show for life,
I can no longer hide and fight,
The true me when it's thriving to come out.
In this moment I do doubt,
That I will ever be flawless, only odd.
I hold a blade to my arm as the former freaks applaud,
My so called success and I go on for the next act.
I will never turn back.
Life in the ShadowsIs it wrong that I feel this way?
Am I wrong because I'm...
The feeling if being normal,
I miss it.
I can't tell anyone;
I'm so afraid.
The way I was,
I should've stayed.
Is this really a disease?
Is there really no cure?
I'm so confused;
God made me,
Yet God is pure.
So what you're saying,
Is I should change?
That I'm wrong,
Because I'm gay?
Don't tell me that.
I refuse to change who I am.
You don't own me.
FrightmareThere's no monster,
Under the bed.
Just the shadows,
Playing with my head.
There's no zombie,
Behind the door.
Just my hallway,
There's no danger,
That lurks outside.
There's no need,
For me to run and hide.
Protecting me from all harm,
My kitten scampers away on a whim.
There's no way,
Monsters could get past him.
Keep in Touch!
