I never asked you to leave
Only advised to chase your dreams
Wasnt l part of the dream. Random thoughts

My pen dried from the ink
so did my eyes from all the tears
but i still have words to speak
and more wailing to weep
.
Im all torn apart
laying face down on the ground
a lifeless corps down earth
whilst a mind is roaming among the stars
somewhere i could meet you or even see you from afar.
.
   I wonder when all of this will face an end ,
" one day " as one said
truth, untold
words, unspoken
promises were broken
Eyes that lost the spark , waited in the dark.
but what if it was true, that only me and you
                                                          will last .
                       will you come searching for me ?
                                                 cause im long lost .

I missed your voice
I  wanted to say,  I'm sorry
for everything
but its to late
you forgot our song
you've moved on
what did I except
you wobble on your stilts
wonder how that feels
but the question is
you learned to stop
so why can I not?

I love the Stars
Cold and distant burning warm on approaching day
Darker than the lover's heart once torn apart until the newfound comes
And ways present themselves

And in falling
Streaks across the sky proclaiming love of our atmosphere
With a tale of residue tagging along and just behind it's former way of life

And in our eyes seeing
A sparkle alive in this familiar, love found, way

A star entering loves atmosphere
Is what I see in the dawn of this new day
True story...

But man, my allergies sure are killing me. Truthfully, I wish I was outside of this ragweed atmosphere right now. (;

Goodnight cold world, I'll see you (later) in the morning.

After you left
Only emptiness resides in me
So much sorrow is present
That flowers don’t grow anymore
After you left
I let go of singing
For my voice utters your name in every song
After you left
I lost the spark in my eyes
The joy in my heart
After you left
I stopped loving
Hoping it will stop the pain
Only finding out that I can’t unlove you
funny...
i was once thought that,
when i tried to swallow the pen and papers,
i will be able to write
without using my hand.

but i was wrong.

because every time you reminded me
that i don't know how to write,
reality will criticize me that
i am illiterate in fighting
in this mess up world.

illiterate.

an illiterate person who don't how to use
guns and swords in fighting
for the freedom of mind.

i am in masked.

a masked person
because  i tried to swallow
the words that persist to
pressed inside my mind that
"i am already lost even if the
fight is not yet started".

a pretty face won't make him stay,
only words can,
but you write them all down on paper
instead of telling him anyway.
if you spoke up sooner,
if you didn't let your words strangle
themselves in your vocal chords,
maybe love would be a roar,
maybe it would be louder than the sound
of your neighbors fist hitting his wife.
maybe your love wouldn't be so silent,
as his footsteps late at night,
when he comes back stinking of anothers perfume.
you'd turn your body to face the wall,
you'd be a body of bricks,
you'd be the wall.
maybe if both your bodies entwined,
you could form fossils in bed.
and later, archaeologists could marvel
at the beauty of human heartache,
how the heart turns to dust,
and the love decays with us.

i had no idea what love was
until it disappeared
or the joyful sound it made
until silence was all that i could hear
or the beauty that it held
in a single tear
i had no idea what love was
until love disappeared

i had no idea what love would take
until it was gone
took apart this wanting heart
left behind this weary soul
would i have let it get this far
if only i had known
i had no idea what love would take
until love was gone
Without ever saying goodbye.
Without ever saying why.
You departed from this life.
Leaving us all behind.

From your friends to your enemies,
Tears fell from our eyes.
Not a heart was left unbroken.
Not an eye was left dry.

We all sat together grieving,
Remembering scenes from our past.
Wishing we could go back.
Praying these thoughts would last.

Desperately we hold on,
Hoping never to forget,
These thoughts that hold your story,
From the eyes of everyone you've met.

We understand that you are gone, but these memories help us see,
The smile on your face and times we shared every night we dream.

-Brandon Stephenson
Wrote this after the losd of my brother.
You gave so much for me
Cared so much for me.
Guided me when I couldn't see
Taught me about Jesus and what to believe.

You dried my eyes at night when I cried.
Took up for me when I was too scared to fight
You gave me everything when we didn't have a dime.
No matter what, you managed to provide

You always managed to smile
Despite all the darkness in your life.
You made sure that we were always fed and had a bed to lay our heads at night.

I understand now how hard that was for you.
Now that I'm older I can see all the Hell you went through
But all the struggles you overcame, they strengthened you.

Because of this, Mom, I respect you.
Because of this, Mom, I love you.
Whatever troubles life has in store for me
What ever Hell I have to face
I'll take a second to think of you
I know I will make it through anything Mom...
If I'm anything like you.
For Mom
