Brother
harmony crescent Jul 2015
Ramblers in the wilderness
We cant find what we need
Get a little restless from the searching
Get a little worn down in the swing
Like a bull chasing the matador
is a man left to his own schemes
Everbody needs someone beside 'em
shining like a lighthouse from the sea

                                             - NEEDTOBREATHE
I love this song soooo much! This is just the first verse. Like this poem if you're also a NEEDTOBREATHE fan <3

The Phoenix
harmony crescent May 2015
Fall asleep under the trees
I raise my voice to sing to thee
Listen to my lonely call
And face the fears that torture all

My tears will help and strengthen you
Until Courage builds up a new tune
And when I die, remember me
I raise my voice to sing to thee

i am a psychopath
harmony crescent Nov 2016
i am a psychopath
i am the queen of terrifying confidence
i am a minipulator of truth
and lies
because i
am a psychopath
who has her eyes set
on the way she should be
on the reasons behind what they think about her
hurt
it swirls around inside yet i dont feel it
it scrapes away at the walls of my heart
which should be painful
why not
because i am a psychopath

Never Knew You
harmony crescent Jun 2015
Only saw you once
On the metro
You looked like you needed help
I felt like I could have helped you

Never even talked
But our eyes did meet
You looked like you needed hope
But you looked away before I could smile

Pull up to the platform
I opened my mouth to speak
You just picked up your bag
And left

Fell in love
With someone
I had never even met
And it hurt

*Badly

Singing Somehow
harmony crescent May 2015
If only I could think a little clearer

If only I could feel You somewhat nearer

My life is a little depressing right now

But now that I'm singing

somehow

I feel You here with me

Turn Back Around

It hurts you
There is no one you can trust
On the other side

So please turn back around again

My Face
harmony crescent Jul 2015
No, not beautiful
No, not ugly
Just more average than average

The only problem is that
I don't know, and can't control, what it's showing
Normal? I have no idea

And I know I'll never see it myself
I just wish I could
And know what to change

The biggest miscommunications
Happen with my face

Yes, I feel stupid: glaring at you and making you think I want to ****** someone, when it's only the sun in my eyes

No, you did nothing wrong!

Please see past the anger, sadness, or shock that you may see
That isn't me! I'm so much better
This poem (above) is just a free-verse of my feelings and a story that has happened quite a few times regarding my ****** expressions
----------------------
"What's wrong? What did I do?"
*Confusion*
Then I realize, the sun was in my eyes, so I'm squinting, but I probably look like he said something extremely offensive to me. I'm so scared of hurting his feelings because my ****** expressions are so extreme, and I don't even know what I look like.

Airforce Husband
harmony crescent May 2015
The little bit of time spent every morning, it was my treasure
when I think about the promises you made to me
You would come back

Rush out the door, onto another plane
The risk you took every time you woke up
You would come back

Stroke my hair, thought of me each time you were in the air
Grabbed my hand, kissed my lips, you said
You would come back

Thunderstorms, always I prayed, and hugged our picture frame
I felt you murmur, through all the noise
You would come back

The   only   promise   You   ever   broke

Because   You   didn't   come   back

The Truth
harmony crescent Jun 2015
"You sounded great up there."
"You totally failed, but I don't want to be a dream-crusher so I'll lie"

Smiles at you when someone compliments you on how you did
"You're lucky that I even let you sing up there, even if you're horrible"

"I look forward to hearing you next week"
*"JK, I'm not coming back again, no way"
DONT SUGAR-COAT IT! I KNOW THAT YOU ARE LYING ANYWAY

Remember
harmony crescent May 2015
When I die, remember me

not by the words I screamed, but by the words I spoke
not by the way I ran away, but by the way we walked together
not by the face that cried, but by the face that shone
not by the hands that slapped, but by the hands that held

not by the love we lost, but by the love we shared
dont cry because it's over, smile because it happened

Run Wild
harmony crescent Jun 2015
Are the walls to lock you in
or keep the others away?

And if the doors were to be opened
would you leave or would you stay?

The comfort of your misery you cherish dearly

And you haven't started dreaming
'cause you're still fast asleep

                                                    -For King & Country

Solitude
harmony crescent May 2015
I enjoy the solitude
The drawn curtain, being alone

I don't need a friend
Unless the shadows count

I can smile, have a conversation
with myself

A guitar in my lap
A song in my head

I enjoy the solitude
I'm pretty introverted, and today i spent most of the time in my room in the dark just sitting with my guitar. It was great.

A Slave's Song (continued)
harmony crescent May 2015
All the creatures stop in quell
To listen to your feeble smell
Of all the fear down in your heart
Down, down in the deepest part

The moonlight yells,
The starshine screams
And tries to unknot the seams
Those tight seams divide in two
Your heart that won't give in to you

Though this song might never end
If you ever need a friend
The hope that never shows itself
Lives in your eyes, and there to help
this one actually goes before the original A Slave's Song

What I Needed
harmony crescent Jun 2015
chorus:*
Why did I worry
And why did I sin
And why was I just so conceited
And why did I roll in the mud of the world for so long

Why was I angry
And why did I cry
And why did I judge those I hated
And why did I waste love on those that I didn't care for

Even when darkness knew what I feared
He knew what I needed
This is the chorus of the song I am currently recording. I spent so long trying to get just the right words :). Message me if you want to know more about the meaning behind this song.

and shattered glass at the top of its hill
made it all the way up
just to be left broken and ***** at the finish line
im sorry
not because youre broken
(being broken isnt so bad)
but because all you can see is the dust that coats you
i promise
all your pieces make a window
and all the stars make a sky
and all this dust makes the adventure of a lifetime

Hearts of Wind
harmony crescent May 2015

The deep, long breaths of the sea
echoes off mountains

across streams

It rumbles through the trees
and sings
through chimes and strings

But it dies off
Eventually
Like all Hearts of Wind do

A Slave's Song
harmony crescent May 2015
Far away, in long long while
We were held in Ecinxile
They tortured us
We screamed and cried
Traitors stole, or so they lied

Corruptness swept through castle grey
Always felt, but seen in haze
Longing for some kind of change
But no hope left among this age

No birds, no trees, no joy it seems
Can fill the void
That sadness leaves
Unactive stages never run
This tremor of death had begun

A lark inside the tallest tree
Keeps my heart under it's wings
Forever on goes your reply
So underneath this tree I lie

This ballad that I sing to you
Will always be fully true
I'm for you, and you for me
In sadness of this melody

For no one knows what life may bring
So all you can do is sing
I play and sing this song for my sister so she can go to sleep. The melody is really beautiful.

Out There

Is there really a guy out there
Who doesn't care what I look like
And will love me anyway

Girls say that there is all the time

All of them wear mini shorts and don't have to **** in their belly look good in a tight shirt

Like they know what they're talking about

Is there really a genuine man out there
Or will society contaminate him before I find him

Best it can Be
harmony crescent May 2015
One day is fantastic
the mirror isn't lying
guitar is already in tune
and the clouds are done crying

But when the only friend I have
is the breeze that's fading quick
and the bars were raised
higher than I can jump

It's getting harder to make the choices
that will make my life
the best it can be

A restless yearning
Won't stop burning
Behind my eyes
Inside my legs

Lives in my mind

Are what provide motivation
In my anger
Amongst my memories
I love running but I'm really bad at it :/

I'm ready to step out
i guess i always was
but was too scared
to face the fact that
i am not the only person on this planet
with a life worth living

i am ready for sacrifice
of time, money, and comfort
i am ready to be free
of the fickle judgements of others
i am ready to reach out
and enjoy me
and pour into others
and pray for real
and be legit
and dream
and work
and fight
and make life a journey
of thought and sacrifice
and love

read a dumb book
harmony crescent Dec 2016
i just read a dumb book

About a girl who is wrecked
And a boy who is broken

And then just with one look

They open up and are slowly perfected
By falling into an unreal love

And all it took

To make a teen giddy with hope
Is an author who lives in a hole

To write a dumb book
These types of books make me furious

But I am neither a bird, bee, or tree
but I am still free
nature can show us how much freedom we actually have
