All I could feel was red,
from the trees
that had roared
like flaming manticores,
                                                     ­ to the sky
                                     who had bled
                                                      its final dawn..


The veins in my head cut sharp corners
through my temples,
trying to break free from the prison
of my mind.
Steam emits itself
from my ears.
The amber tea was ready.
Lava erupted
from my face
and through my head.
I felt it ooze
                                    through my eyes
                    through my ears
                   Even through the corners of my mouth.


My demons stayed dormant
no longer.
My fist shook holding them,
my mouth relentlessly
sewn shut..
I bottled them like genies
and stored them
in a cellar.
                                                         Hot-blooded merlot
              and Foam-at-the-mouth pinot.
All i needed was a moment.
To keep myself in check.
Not end up like the rest.
A mess.
You couldn't give me a moment.
Cuz you were feeling down,
When i wasn't around
Can't you see.

That it isn't just you.
I've too been feelin blue.
But you didn't have a clue.
You were so focused on yourself.
Didn't know i needed help.
But its too late for me now
Shouldn't have stuck around,
Not stuck around for you.

You knew that I knew,
Something between us wasn't right.
Just a wick to a flame.
Burn bright till there is no more light.

It is too late for me now.
I hope you're finally feeling proud.
That I'm six feet in the ground.
I know your hearts probably in pain.
Watch all of it go away.
When you find you a new main.


You'll just find you a new main.
Going through some things. Haven't written in quite some time. I hope you enjoy it.
I saw your eyes, from across the room.
You felt my gaze, take control of you.
If this ain't something, what does it mean?
It can't be nothing, it ain't a dream.
I need you closer, closer to me.
Don't know where to start.
But we can't be apart.

There was something, something, something, something about you

Was it that sparkle in my eye
That attracted you to me
The lust in your voice
That made my heart bleed

There was something, something, something, something about you

Distance yourself, from confusion.
What we just had, was no delusion.
It can't be nothing, you felt it to.
If this ain't something, what do I do?
You want me closer, closer to you.
Don't know where to start.
But we can't be apart.

There was something, something, something, something about you

Was it that sparkle in my eye
That attracted you to me
The lust in your voice
That made my heart bleed

There was something, something, something, something about you
About my first love and how it felt to fall in love for the first time
Been feeling kind of lonely.
As these days go by.
Been trapped in my feelings.
Heart's locked behind my mind.
Can you see the shadows?
Carressing my skin.
I see the fire rising.
And the clouds rolling in.

I'm just a pawn.
But honestly thats just fine.
I lost myself.
Somewhere along the line.
I tried to go back.
To right my wrongs.
I tried to go back.
But the pains too strong.

Why do I have to endure it?
Why do I have to burden it?
The devil's got my strings.
Why won't this pain just go?
My life is not my own...
The devil's got my strings.
One of the darkest things I've probably ever written. I hope you all enjoy it! (: im experimenting different kinds of things! Please let me know your thoughts
Is it wrong for me to hate you?
Its so hard not to love you.
Everytime I try to move on with my life..
You just have to go and make things all right.
Just know I don't need you.
Do note how bad I want you.
Because when I'm gone.
Thats the end of our song.

Is it wrong for me to say this?
Why is it so hard to move on?
If I  said none of this.
Would you still play along?
As if we're still in love.
Like we never even stopped.
Maybe I should've stop.
Forget what I said, its dropped.

There is something that we love about us.
Its a shame that we both mask it with lust.
Guess we were never meant to be.
That future will stay a mystery.

I remember how we were.
Just years ago.
The world was our own.
And i held you so high.
Stars in your eyes.
How I fantasized.
Until you ****** it up for us.
So now, I'm gone.
Can't take this pain no more.
So tonight I'll give my loving.
But tomorrow I leave with yours.

Is it wrong for me to say this?
Why is it so hard to move on?
If I had not said any of this.

I feel really good about this one! haven't written in months...enjoy all! Thoughts opinions?!?! Im just hoping no one forgot About me. I fell into a bad state of depression but it inspired me to write through my struggles and aftef waiting so long to write something i finally found enough courage to do just that. Thank you all again.
I'll let you tell me things that hurt me, but I have to.
Its cuz part of me's in love with you.
In these days, I find it harder for me to want to know who you are.
Though its been months since I've known you, do you really know me?
Oh how I wish our friendship was a dream.
Since its not, I have to wake up, every morning, with these tears polluting my eyes.

Cuz unlike you I have so much to hide.
Your secrets are nothing compared to mine.
I tried to mask all the pain away with a tall bottle of wine.
I understand, why you can't love me back.
That doesn't stop all this pain from growing.
So just know when you want to talk again, I won't hesitate to let you know.

That my ears are yours.
I'm trapped behind this door.
I want to open up to you, but the pain from the knowing is too much to bare.

I can feel it in my bones now.
Trying to fight the urge to reveal it all.
They all can see it on my face now.
Somehow you're still oblivious.
I don't want to stop talking.
But I do want to stop hurting.
I just don't know what to do.
Even though you ******* hurt me.
That wont stop me from wanting,
The pity hours I get from you.

Cuz unlike you I have so much to hide.
Your secrets are nothing compared to mine.
I tried to mask all the pain away with a tall bottle of wine.
I understand, why you can't love me back.
That doesn't stop all this pain from growing.
So just know when you want to talk again, I won't hesitate to let you know.

That my ears are yours.
I'm trapped behind this door.
I want to open up to you, but the pain from the knowing is too much to bare.

I want to hate you, but I love you.
Can you hate me? So I won't love you.
I know you too much.
Do you really know me?
I want to hate you, but I love you.
Can you hate me? So I won't love you.
When will it all stop.
I dont want to fall for you anymore.

But my ears are yours.
I'm trapped behind this door.
I want to open up to you, but the pain from the knowing is too much to bare.
Hey everyone! So sorry I have been gone for so long. I've been battling some really bad depression but I'm feeling a lot better now (: please enjoy this piece.
I bet you thought that you finally had me out now.
I don't mean to be a mystery.
Cuz even half the time I question myself and even who I've become.
I hope you're not trying to find some love in me.
Cuz all you'll see is a heart emptied.
Though I said its a waste of time.
You still try to find a new way to prove me wrong.

Because you think I have something to hide.
You really think Im holding myself back.
And yet you tried to project yourself on me.
I projected myself right back.
Yet somehow you haven't given me up.
Hate to admit, I like that fire in you.
But it's too late. I have already made up my mind.
And theres no going back now.

Now its set in stone.
And your on your own.
You tried to move yourself in my heart only to realize it is not your home.

Why you look so **** defeated now?
Had a plan and I guess it didn't work out?
Ain't no reason to feel defeated now.
You won't give up without a doubt.
And so you may be curious.
How exactly do i know this?
Well sorry but I've seen your kind before.
The ones always pursuing.
For the ones immune to wooing.
Sorry but I've read this book before.

And yet you think I have something to hide.
You really think Im holding myself back.
And yet you tried to project yourself on me.
I projected myself right back.
Yet somehow you haven't given me up.
Hate to admit, I like that fire in you.
But it's too late. I have already made up my mind.
And theres no going back now.

Now its set in stone.
And your on your own.
You tried to move yourself in my heart only to realize it is not your home.
Now its set in stone.
And we've crossed the line.
It hurts to see how hard you tried only to realize that you lost at the line.

Yet this hurts me, more than it hurts you.
But I'd be lying, if I said I love you.
I hate to see you lose, i hate to watch you lose
Yet this hurts me, more than it hurts you.
But I'd be lying, if I said I love you.
You keep trying so hard, to win my emptied heart.

Now its set in stone.
And your on your own.
You tried to move yourself in my heart only to realize it is not your home.
Now its set in stone.
And we've crossed the line.
It hurts to see how hard you tried only to realize that you lost at the line.
