Isolated with my thoughts, dwindling into emptiness Wishing there was something to rip the pain from my chest Breathing becomes more difficult as my eyes begin to swell
I feel so alone
Though the Darkness surrounds
Gracefully I dance

Blood is shed by the hands of men, Deep scarlet runs through the streets. When did this form of genocide began? With blood, human hands are streaked. It seems as if everyone has lost touch

So I say goodbye to the daylight, To the sun I bid adieu,
I didn’t want the morning to come, The sun to invade my windows and brighten my room,
I look to you,Then to myself,Then to my life, Past wretched falure upon failure,Bewitched by hollow hopes. My love never was,It never should have been
For whome, This may
There is a land of radiance that shines
I was always the last person in line, the last seat at the back of the classroom, and the last person to speak.

In a world full of chaos and hate, you wanna know what lifts me up... you wanna know what makes me smile... you wanna know how I am able to persevere,
I prize my gift from the sun, the smooth ebony blanket that trails in my path. It bears the token of my progress, like a toll booth of past endowments, always full of unanswered prayer.

On the first night of our secret meeting we can ran wild like the wind. Just you and I and the moon. The moon shined so bright it rivaled the sun. Our sun, your light, my fire.
Walking down the street with tear in my eyes and you still have words to say to me? My head in the ground, dirt in my face and your still kicking me?
Darling, light that cigarette Let the ashes fall With them your dreams Cause tomorrow when you wake up You'll realize we never met Standing on that boardwalk In the dark of night
The devil is chasing me Always has been Since the day I was conceived He tries to make me give in Though there're many enticements And many temptations
So much energy, In one small space. Shining light all over the place, Bright and bold It takes the gold Lantern shine bright, all through the night.
In the overshadowing darkness where despair takes life and hope is nothing but a word. Where faith has no meaning and trust has fallen to sorrow. In the consuming darkness
What is hope Is it the illogical sense of knowing everything will be alright? Is it stupid Is it smart What is hope Is it wishing something that you want comes true? Is it selfish
Here's one from several months back: Weighed down by the mistakes of my past A pebble, a rock, a mountain on my shoulders At first I ran, regrets like quicksand sucking at my feet

As the sunlight slips between my fingertipsI watch the shadows fallThey fall in lacy breaths over my skin,Making darkness and light seem so intricate
Life; It is something to be cherished and treasured Something to put your all into
Patient and silent, I will wait Shrouds of shinister figures, beckoning Cloaked in darkness, I will wait Into the depths of the forboding abyss Neither friend nor foe, I will wait
