Turn On The Dark
When fragile hopes and fears collide
It waits for you on the other side
I can feel the tremors in my soul
I've grown afraid of the masquerade.
Barely holding on, I'm losing control
Wide awake, I confide in the shade.
Sinking so slowly down the drain
Much like the purple pill I swallow.
A voice unheard is a voice in vane
Black rain falls and teardrop's follow.
Shadows loom throughout the room
They cover my eyes like a veil.
Just flip the switch, it'll be over soon
Just pull the curtain over the pale.
The transition rattles my psyche at first
Yet it's a feeling I've always invited.
For when my body becomes submersed
You're taken advantage of.
Manipulated every step.
Like a stringed mannequin,
You move when you are told.
Walk where your master directs,
Never missing a beat.
The life you live
Is not of your own.
You live what people want you to,
But this ends now.
With the scissors
To cut the strings
And set you free.
I've stolen the key
To open your cage.
And I can see
It's rusted with age.
Will it still fit?
If it does,
Will you come?
Come with me,
To escape this tragedy?

New EyesI have new eyes
Things now won't be in disguise
They will be so clear
Because the truth lies
Behind my lies
I must be careful
I must be wise
For things might be different
But There won't be any surprise
Because the light in me will rise
I won't be blind
I won't be tied
To old things in me died
Don't you see what lies behind the lies?
Come & see through my eyes
Nightmares Kill FaithWaking up late at night
Crying because you have no sight,
Darkness whistles like a piercing screech
And your ears wish to hear the sound of speech.
They wish they could hear those special words,
"It will be okay you'll be saved by the lord"
But really you will lay there so cold and alone
Learning that when it's over there will be no home.
You fall back to sleep and your eyes become heavy
The nightmare comes back and the tears break the levy,
You cry and you wish that sleep would soon come
But as long as you feel there is no hope
You'll sit there lifeless and tie up the rope.
I'm In Love With YouMy outlook is dark,
My heart blackened,
My vision blurred,
My hope vanished.
But out of the blue,
Like nothing bad had ever happened,
A shining light like no other seen,
Appeared from the gloom.
You made me laugh,
Till tears ran down my face,
And when those tears were filled with sadness,
You made them fade away.
No matter how far i fell,
You always made sure it was always straight into your arms,
You made my day brighten,
To just see your smile
In this gloomy life i lead,
Your golden heart shined,
Brighter then no other,
To help me find a path.
Even when I stumble confused,
You make sure to guide me,
And alothough I ma
Keeping a SecretKeeping a Secret
I cross my heart and hope to die,
If I ever tell you a lie.
Then why am I not dead?
I know I am in my head.
If I told you what I see,
You would never forgive me.
'Truth' is such an important word.
It can cage you up like a bird.
Or let you soar and be free.
It's only now that I see
That you never loved me.
You think I'm full of glee
But I will never let you know
That I am putting on a show.
FlashbacksI grew up with you when I moved away from London
You were one of the first to really make me feel like I belonged.
There, or anywhere else.
We sat under the old apple tree in your backyard.
We talked for hours, until the sun set
And until it rose again.
We planted that flower garden together.
Do you remember how it used to bloom so brightly, every Summer?
In red, white and yellow?
There was a time when I had to walk you home
You were too drunk to stand on your own and mumbled that you loved me.
It was the only time you ever said it out loud.
Your smile was always so bittersweet
It made me want to run a million miles in the opposite direct
I Am YoursLeave it to him
The one who's all steam
The one without a dream.
He'll take you home
To his castle of chrome
To be his imperfect clone.
Give him what he wants
He smiles and he taunts
He laughs and he haunts.
Force those three little words out
He likes it when you scream and shout
He likes it when you beg and pout.
Tell yourself that it's real
When you find him in bed with her
When you make him lose his temper.
Because that's all you are to him,
Another excuse to be angry.
A seed of lust gone too far for him,
But you meant everything to me.
Am I pretty yet?
Erik came home feeling great. He couldn't quite place it, but it was nice. Maybe it was the mid-november sun, or the new song he'd listened to that morning. Whatever it was, he didn't care. He was just happy.
Erik walked through his house, yelling out the names of his family members. No one answered. He dropped his bag and ran up the stairs. He made a sharp right turn and stopped in front of the red wooden door tha led to his mother's room. He slowly edged it open, expecting to find her sleeping soundly. To his suprise, she wasn't there at all. He walked further into the room, realizing he was alone in the house. This was unuasual, cons
Girt by GrimOnce long ago
This land once called earth
Where millions of humans
Forget what they're worth
Thousands jumped from bridge and building
Drowned and unleashed bodies burning
Thousands wallowed forever in the depths
Holding themselves and all that was left
Of the shell of humanity that once shined so bright
The lights are dimming on this world of woe
The only ones left, are the ones that want to go
The ones causing suffering
Have received nothing
The bullies and thieves
Have no dreams to weave
The light is dimming
On this world, so fucked
Because this world
(a long time ago)
Ran out of luck
Old WorldTime, love, peace and war
Shatter wind, waves withdraw
Earth spins but we stay still
What a strange world we live in
Broken homes and open hearts
Dreams made possible some torn apart
Children laughter lifts the world
As long as there remain here we'll have a cheerful world
Scatter clouds chase the wind
The land moves from with in
Moon smiles while it push and pull our seas
Sun knows all the secrets of humanity
Bloody lands and fallen trees
Sacred lands far as the eyes can see
Tell me now what can I do
Too restore the earth to its former youth?
Paper WingsThe legs that ran but did not break,
Went further than the cherub's gait,
A masterpiece eclipsed by the unberable bay.
Paper wings pure and unstained
Did flutter, in the mist of dark,
A child's meloncholia, lost in her heart,
And she fell through the tempered stars.
Stain red, the legs that did not start,
And inject the darkness of your soul
Into the bond that couldn't hold,
And break it, cast among the shoals
Of heaven, where the angels soar
Above golden rivers flowing deep,
I pray for you your wings to keep,
So I can tear them off, you see,
We have no use for paper wings.
Broken by a new pup's cry,
Cast your heart into the night,
Lost in the starsShe wanted to ski in a desert, and swim in the air.
It didn't have to make sense and she really didn't care.
She liked to dream in black and white, and pick out all the colours.
Have no time to finish one, but enough to start another.
She listened to the mute, and talked to mimes.
She was always running late, but walked like she was on time.
She was in love but never fell, she even rang some wedding bells.
But people knew it all along that no one could ever tame her heart, because it was already lost in the stars.
Do You Remember?Do you remember that poem you wrote me?
Well, I found it the other day.
It was in my jacket pocket.
I didn't know one piece of paper
Could bring back so many memories.
It's amazing how long it has been
Since you gave it to me.
I am thankful that
I had you in my life.
All the good and bad times,
They made us that much stronger.
Thank you for coming into my life.
Thank you loving me.
I couldn't have asked for anything better.
So you see what a simple
Piece of paper with words on it can do.
It made me remember why I cared so much.
It made me remember you,
So thank you for writing it.
PineThe smell of the wet green pine,
draws me to the forest,
the crunch beneath my feet,
the warmth of the sun,
the glistening wet grass,
the beautiful trees,
the blooming flowers,
bursting from the ground,
the leaves and vines,
and the intertwining paths,
all the wonder,
and the beauty,
with the smell of the wet green pine.
The ShadowI walk through the shadows eyes,
and watched as my sweet demise,
rocked the stormy skies and sea,
My heart slowly leaving me,
a story so long,
a life that's so wrong,
Not the life for me.
I walk through the shadows mind,
searching for things I cannot find,
driving forces drive me near,
bringing me so far from here,
the saddest sight you'll see.
I walk through the shadows mouth,
hearing words as he does shout,
saying words so cruel and cold,
bashing others and being bold,
no sight or sound,
will be lost or found,
until I hear the shadow scream.
I walk through the shadows life,
seeing his mos
UnexpressedA world without expression,
Is like a world without words,
All feelings bottled up,
Like plugs without cords,
That is my world,
Because no one will hear,
My anxieties and worries,
And things that I fear,
It's never their problem,
I'm all alone,
Yet when they have a problem,
I am the first one they'll phone,
I help all around me,
With nothing in return,
Sometimes that's enough,
Sometimes I need more,
I'm always there,
For anyone anytime,
But when may I ask,
Will the turn be mine,
My mind melts away,
As I smile like nothings wrong,
Only expressing in poetry,
Or even a song,
But written words are not enough,
For this lit
KnightI was once filled with darkness,
A soul without light,
An empty shell,
No will to fight,
My heart use to be broken,
Beyond all repair,
Then you were the one,
Who noticed me there,
My knight in shining armor,
My prince charming on a horse,
You were the one who stopped,
This heart from getting worse,
Now I keep fighting,
Because I have you by my side,
I found unknown feelings,
They no longer hide,
My body was empty,
But now it is filled,
With the love of a person,
Who is very skilled,
In the way of the heart,
In the way of the mind,
And it makes me so happy,
That he wants to be mine.
BrokenI can't comprehend,
What's seen through these eyes,
The yelling the screaming,
No truth only lies,
The feelings of failure,
The dreams that she hides,
Trapped inside herself,
As her heart slowly dies,
A small empty shell,
No heart and no soul,
She searches for meaning,
Wherever she may go,
She craves for a feeling,
Sadness or joy,
But she's left with nothing,
All thanks to that boy,
Who told her he loved her,
And then left her to cry,
Leaving her feelings,
To rot and to die.
AloneI'm alone in this world,
I can't even be with myself,
One needs a soul to exist,
I'm empty and cold,
This skin of mine holds no warmth,
Where can I find it?
It doesn't matter anymore,
Mirror, MirrorMirror, Mirror,
On the wall,
Tell me, Tell me,
Where do I fall,
I am not skinny,
I am not smart,
I can't sing,
Or create art,
I'll never be pretty,
Or funny and fun,
I am far from flirty,
What can be done,
My body is ugly,
And so is my soul,
Tell me, Tell me,
What is my role?
Show me my fate,
Tell me, Tell me,
How do I escape?
Is it inside my wrists,
Where the key does lie,
Should I cut them open,
And let myself die,
Is my salvation in a bottle,
With small, round, white pills,
Let them wash down my throat,
And watch as it kills,
Where is the answer,
Where is my goal,
Tell me, Tell me,
What is my
