Sitting alone in a dark room Wondering if everything that happened was true As the silence grows stronger and my heart beats faster I'm now laying down, lost and confused

after all you have done to hurt me i wish you nothing but peace and the last thing you will ever get from me
Just as it started, it’s all ending. Coming to a close. Curtain call is starting soon. Apologies and Wishful Dreams. Glass Hearts on Pillars.

Dear Father, You were there for my birth At least I think you were But that’s about it You saw me growing up But I would rarely see you
You’ll never let me go. I understand that. You have pride, beliefs, things that keep you from leaving me alone to fend for myself,
Memories created are stored in the colors of sky and sea, grass and kitchen counter. Feelings of music and pain are stored in the apple-scented air and sweet breeze of the place I used to be.
I could never get rid of you The way you smiled How you laughed, the short chuckle that would follow after Your comforting stare

Honestly, I fell for you; I fell for you hard, like nothing else mattered. You were on my mind day and night and everything in between;
Desiring some kind of unspoken fantasy, Destined to remain idle, for what cna be done? Wretched, diseased, fangs clawing from the inside out. Eager to get a taste of something shiny and new.
Do you ever miss a moment Before it's over? Or a person Before you leave them? Do you ever miss a place While you're still there? Or a feeling Before it's gone?

What this money means to me Is that one day I'll succeed I'll succeed to achieve my dreams
These days feel like half-empty sheets of paper and I don't have enough ink in my pen My coffee has gone cold but I continue drinking, because drinking is a nervous habit of mine
Alone the rain is not your friend It soaks your coat and taps your head Your feet grow cold and you fill with dread

We started with a "hey" We ended in "good bye" You left me on the floor Pretending I'm fine But you left me out to dry And all you had were lies I think about you everyday
When you start off young you see yourselfan astronaut among the starsor driving in all the fancy cars. You never know what mess you’ll get in
Sometimes I can't breathe When you're walking next to me. Sometimes you just have to take a chance and just say 'Hello'. You smile at me and I smile back,

From this distance, The outline of her is only visible. Time has made a small impact, But her coldness has caused the gap I call her name, Only to see her respond to another.
If you had listened You would've known That I wishing for you But you never listened Because you thought You didn't have to I told you everything On my mind But you should know
Dad, where are you? Why aren’t you here?
My fingers have froze the tips are bleeding a gentle stream of flowing red blood. Everything I love is slowly fading away or frozen in time within my mind.
My toes dig deep Deep into the water drenched dirt
Reaching out, gripping your hand with mine, Muscles stretching, tendons straining to hold on. My grip is starting to slip away; I Won't Let Go. Your memories entrenched within my mind,
maybe it's better this way maybe my self respect will transition from an oak relying on your rain to a cactus growing toward her sun because i know she won't be bitter
My life's movin' on. New decisions, thus made. The scars from first love and first sorrow Are gettin' better each day. Rays of sunshine drop in. Past my desolate days. I'm runnin' and comin'
Your name was once an omenA sacred prayer sent up to heavenThat set the sky ablazeIn your luminescent glory
Forget this town.Now I remember why I left.I don't need you now. Maybe this is a sign.You might have beenjust a phase to me. Getting over youwon't be easy.It'll take time.

Kindness, integrity and respect With the heart of shear compassion and determination Giving up will never be an option But failing will not be shameful
Pain, the wound created out of events that life has burdened upon you. Experience, the wound healed and turned to nothing, but a scar only to be vaguely remembered.
The heart-wrenching news you tell me nowadays Is stored in the latched box of my distant mind; it decays Into my deepest and darkest ponders, And upon reminder is where this distraction wanders.
I want to know who I am I thought I was you…that buried deep inside my soul somewhere lied an essence as pure as yours, not tainted by the neurosis
It's hard to be erased. A whole chapter of my life a waste. You fell at a different pace. So now, tears are all I can taste. I saved your pictures, just in case, Although, I have memorized your face.
I long for a chance to know you again, the way I used to.. To know the dark echoes of your heart, and the pools of light that filled your eyes. I wish I could drown in your self loathing
It’s 3am and I can hear myself breathing but I’m questioning the breaths. What if I told you that I’m not really here? I am just a blurry vision in the mirror where I slice my wrists and hold them up to God.
I drift I never touch the surface I never touch the sky I am in between heaven and hell Glory and guts Existence and death. Where I am Shifts suddenly I am on top
As the wind whips within my face. The cold sharp agonizing pain brings memories of disgrace.
Even flowers that give the sweetest scent Must one day wither away. But will you remember how strong they stood Before their ultimate decay? The future seems full of many days
I'm tearing down the tower where you once lived in the castle of my heart. I'm gonna use all the stones, you won't get any part of the walls, ceiling, or floor. The new tower will be better;
The first step can be the longest. When you want to forget someone. The first step can be challenging. When you feel as if you could never forget them. The first step can be the hardest. When you want to tell them everything. Let them now.
Do you know the difference? It's your new-found lack of interest The way we used to speak, About this life, That romantic time at Miller creek, You made me feel so much alive,
(poems go here)Things come and go, We sit and stare out the window. Thinking what we’ll miss, And would it be different if we hadn’t kiss. One day there, here, and the next gone,
> Forever mine, > Forever yours: > words littered on > innocent shores. > > Those promises > collapsed by waves, > when washed away, > they've carved our graves.
I let you go a little more each dayI guess it's better that way.Losing you all at once bewilders my soulRipping away a part from a whole.Hey, best friendThought I knew you so well
I have forgotten the way we loved with salt still on our skin,* but not every secret hurt. Blocked out the image of the stained blood color of your lips against her pale parts, the sweetness
Don't try to explain yourself I know the truth I never want to be by myself never wanted to hurt you.
Letters of blue, background of gray. A forlorn hue, a fading day. Memories made, memories lost. Characters built, companions cost. Childhood gone, in body for sure. Maturity's con,
To travel that yonder highway A dream I once had To travel to that far away place Of familiarity and known I ponder of when I will go I do not care where Only that it is far away from there
Memory let your montage play in the theater of my mind to an audience of one. Clips and pieces, images with sounds: they scatter on the screen as shape is taken and form is whole,
I once knew of a girl, Roaming and young, Who closed her eyes when it rained, And envied the sun.
You only held me back. Clipped my wings so I couldn't fly. Well look at me now. Soaring way up high and flying free. You'll never again take that away from me.
The more I look, the more I see, you never wanted me for me. You only wanted what I was not, well congratulations that's what you got. The more I listen, the more I know.
To see everything else Oh, when will it be The home the love Come with me I read I learn I dream of it all The friends the words Come with me
Out of Sight. Out of Mind. sometimes it’s hard to find the paradise I had in mind I fight with all my might and I’m still here. You’re still there. Out of Sight. Still in Mind.
Champagne corks are popping, everyone's wishing you luck on your way. You're leaving this life behind you, at least for a little while. This set of people, these familiar sights and smells gone in a day.
