I innerstand. I feel your pain as I know how scary the darkness can be when you can't see the light within.

Lately

Lately
, Iíve been chasing after
Thoughts that are much warmer
But theyíre getting much faster
I Woke up in a daze and Soon
youíll get over this faze itíll end
I Burnt you for no witnesses
the only one that burned I regret
Someone new, someone like you
Youíre the only thing that gets hurt here
When itís all done and Iím all alone
I know that Youíll never return


Iím feeling so grey † † † † † † † † † † †
My eyes are so red
No sleep because †
My Thoughts are reread
I fucked everything up
You know I did † † † † † † †
I wish I didnít say all
The things that Iíve said † † †
You where my best part †
What was going through my head † † † † † †


This is how my life goes
Sinking in the life I wrote
zippoís bright light grows
Smoking in the night glow
Thoughts of ending my life flow
Throwing all my life goals, †out †
Youíll never understand so
keep standing yet I feel so low
Pictured us together Iím alone
Felt good then feelings sold, †out
Bye,
bye bye me,


Iím feeling so grey † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
My eyes are so red
No sleep because
My Thoughts are reread
I fucked everything up
You know I did
I wish I didnít say all
The things that Iíve said
You where my best part
What was going through my head


you never fit in,
anyways
Look at the clouds,
 theyíre always grey
Look at the sidewalk,
theyíre always grey
Top to bottom,
Every direction
all Iíve ever seen is grey,
itís no wonder why you split away,
whyíd it take so long to get away,
be free from insanity,
this bore-dom industry,
finally opened your eyes and seen,
what life could be,
so far from me


Thoughts to sink in the blue
My eyes are getting so red
Still No sleep because
All My thoughts are reread
I really fucked everything up
You know I did
I wish I didnít say all
The things that Iíve said
Youíre the best thing
What was going through my head


Well Lately
Iíve been
Iíve been running away from
Myself and everyone else
I canít get over
I need to move over †
Please push me over

To spare my self
the pain
of caring
I must share my life
with the ghosts
from my painful past
where my bones
still lay
fractured and screaming
while i
aimlessly wander around
this concrete jungle
of a broken life
some times resting
renting
the only thing i have
for the price
of dumbing down
numbing
ignoring
the feelings
that cry
for a little pride
in this life
that i despise
in a world
that doesn't care
why i hide


Quote
It is not
the path
that i walk
that is crumbling
and cracked
It is ME

Come play with me Mommy
i need you to see
all those things
you had me believe

Come play with me Daddy
i want to see
if i stab you
will you bleed
as Mommy screams
as you recede
into my shadows
you released
putting your bias
and all your fears
into the one  
that you keep saying  
you love
turning my world
into a nightmare
of ignorant belief's
that feed
on my dreams

Quote
do you remember
your dreams
when you were
Young

I've got a tired
weary mind
a feeling
of being hollow
inside

I've got the usual
on my
face book posts
with tacked on group hug
likes
that make me
sigh
when i
try to smile

I've got the newest
trending clothes
I've got the boardwalk
t.v pose
with a body
that would make
an anorexic
cry

Ive got the standard
plastic smile
and i've got a strong urge
to cry
but i've got no one to cry to

I've got a lot of face book
friends
where verbal diarrhea
pretends

I've got a knife
that keeps calling out
my name

Oh please
someone pick up
my hope
and hold me
close
for i need some one
to help me
grow
while i'm
still here
before
there is
nobody home

Quote
It's hard
trying to be
what other people
Believe

An ode to self

Wine tears
Flowing through the contours of cheeks
To reach these valleys residing in heart
Listen
Let the echo jump into this abyss
Until it reverberates like a suicidal cry
And breaks like a rope
Adamant on giving second chance to life
Cloud covered skin
Akin to those shaded sins of past
Listen
Let them shine under the sun
Like an uncut diamond
Diffracting regrets into million little stories of sorrows
Till your world gleem like a toddler's smile
Doesn't this give you hope?
Why are you scared to be forgiven?
Lakeless lands filled with thoughtless mines
These granides burst in your heart
Every single night
Until you strangle your dreams with a sigh
Listen
Donot wake up soon
Or you will see the collateral damage reality did
Why aren't you hopeful today?
Let me kill you sweetly
Your mind, a salem witch
Your body, a pyre
Listen
This ashened ground carries the pieces of your past
How long will it last?
Why don't you see the light?
Your lustrous hair
Tangled in fate
Your beauty, a jaded queen of a losing kingdom
Entraps your lies
Like a chameleon,
Don't you see this truth changing shades
Listen
Why do you wait?
Don't you know these lungs are filled with the last breaths of dying self
Why don't you sing me the song of separation?
This is an obituary
Written inside a square on a local newspaper
A young heart died
Carrying all the weight of wasteful existence
Now it beats slowly
Like the last notes sung by a faulty radio
Why don't you dance?
Are you scared to be given a chance?
Your hands,
Soft
Labourless
Intertwine with those weightless waves of time
Listen
Hold strong, for her fingers dance like that of a pianist
Ah! you might lose control
Don't you feel this cadenza of heartbeats?
Adrenaline rising like the crests of the sea
Why don't you sit calmly and breathe?
Your feet
Like paperboats
Lose their way
Amidst the sandfilled water
Sinking
They shriek
Like an alarm signalling tsunami
Listen
Don't you see this humongous life
Slowly eating you alive?
You, a princess of a town
With earthfilled crown
Wears auburn skies on her skin
Where the sun never sets
Like a nauseating child
With voice trapped mid way
Scream
Scream
Until the earth stops spinning
And Alaskan winters dawn upon your soul
Burning with cold
Until this universe screeches to halt
And heavens fall like rain
Gods like droplets collect in your hands
Begging to evaporate into nothingness
Taking away the casualty of your birth
A wildfire spreading beneath your veins
Listen
Don't freeze into reality
Live
For this tale is a fiction of a dying writer
You may not get any end
Immortal, your unending story
Thunders around
As people close the windows of their homes
And you like hobo, a child of wind
Wanders alone, forgotten
What a curse
Dont you know
You should have accepted yourself a long ago...

Let me be

Friends wants me to be a sailor
But I don't wanna go beyond the shore
They cut me off

Father wants me to be a doctor
But I'd faint at the sight of blood
He left me to rot

Mother wants me to be an engineer
Damn! I don't wanna be such
"She says; You're too weak my son"

My brother wants me to be a soldier
Nah! I just wanna be raw
"Okay; but don't end up joining thugs"

Girlfriend want me to be a pilot
But height scare me too much

Everybody wants me to be something
But I want to be none

Neighbours want me to be a professor
But I careth not

They labelled me as "Not-serious"
They called me names
"Boy without dream"
"Living without aim"
"He's content with living in shit"
"He never want to improve"
"Don't you have something to prove"
"Ohw; seems he has nothing to lose"
"He wants to survive only"
"He's used to been lonely"

Fuck
I'm tired of been judge

See
There they sit
With their pen and ink
Painting me weak
And they thought me mean
Gossiping
But I just wanna be me
I just want to live
And leave peacefully
Without a heck of unlikely dreams
That's my philosophy
And if it doesn't go well with thee
Call me what you see
Words you speak
Don't move me a inch
I'll forever be who I want to be

 † †left me with shame everyday
 † †didn't talk to my friends anymore
 † †don't really even know what for

Table for two

Reservation in hell, a table for two
I'm dining with heroin, how about you
I've taken my order, it'll be here soon
A candle lit romance under the spoon
As I'm waiting, it appears at the table
Draw it up slow, but fast as I'm able
In a hurry, filled with desperation
Took the shot with no hesitation
Pulled the point out like a pin in grenade
Continued to fall back in a nodded fade
After I've eaten, I'm left unfulfilled
Use my napkin, for the blood that spilled
My last meal get to share with a friend
Time our evening has came to an end
As I started to head towards the door
Stopped in my tracks it said one more
Looking around, gave a second glance
Grabbed my arm we got ready to dance
Wrapping around me, squeezed on tight
Took my breath away, kissing goodnight
This isn't how I wanted to say bye
Loved me to death, in a casket I lye
