Stretched out arms infront of me
I raise my pen of indignation
Insults driven by pain and fury
I shutter over a wonded friend

Locked inside a broken candle
my temper burns the threaded key
Symbols light a fragile mantel
a place to share my poetry

The moon wanders under a twisted cloud
I dip my pen into the lake
The sun is sleeping behind a golden mountain
which casts a shadow for me to take

Underneith the stary night
I take flight with no mistake
Bouncing off these walls of darkness
I hope this dream never ends
I hope I never wake

Strive to be at peace
without emotions

Long to ignore the noise
inside your mind
be still

Harmony with life
do not react to passion
stay calm

Fear of loss and death
pain is a dark cloud

Focus on the bright energy
the energy of God

I wear my heart on my sleeve
watch it bleed

So I reach for the sky
I'm so **** tired of the pain I'm feeling deep inside
Love me or we say goodbye

I'm doing the best I can everyday
I can't seem to run fast enough
from this cloud that's following me
How can I let go?
I'm just a kid staring out the window
at the falling rain my broken heart on a lonely road
I got a letter and a pencil
I think your pretty and I miss you
I cant wait to hear your lovely voice on the telephone

(Chorus)
How can love be so simple then suddenly it hits you
and you cant seem to breathe or stand on your own
You can shove or your can push through you can even make an issue
if you don't hold onto love you can be left all alone

Love oh love won't you leave me alone
I feel you in my blood stream
and your crushing every bone
what have you done to me
Your in my dreams
your in my thoughts
and now you are a memory
So I reach for the sky
I'm so **** tired of the pain I'm feeling deep inside
Love me or we say goodbye

(Chorus)
How can love be so simple then suddenly it hits you
and you cant seem to breathe or stand on your own
You can shove or your can push through you can even make an issue
if you don't hold onto love you can be left all alone

I'm doing the best I can everyday
I can't seem to run fast enough
from this cloud that's following me
How can I let go?
I'm just a kid staring out the window
at the falling rain my broken heart on a lonely road

Sitting
standing
walking
landing
on a cloud made of paper lace

Wishing
dreaming
talking
kissing
on the lips of a perfect face

Calling
holding
writing
hugging
in a tree house in a special place

Wanting
needing
touching
breathing
until the end of the dream on that glorious day

I search for words
Lord knows I try
I sat in my room
I sat in my room and cried
It has been so very long
since I've seen you
where has the time gone

(Chorus)
We were just children
playing under a million
stars, they were so brilliant
We were resilient
to the troubles of the world
Living in a world that we were given
we would both just listen
to our hearts
their beating
She asked
are we in love

I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla goodbye
I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla

The memories keep flooding in
We're on a snowy hill we hide
just to hold hands again
By the fire place we are
telling stories in eachothers arms
Just two children
love is innocent
I can't believe that she
that she is gone

(Chorus)
We were just children
playing under a million
stars, they were so brilliant
We were resilient
to the troubles of the world
Living in a world that we were given
we would both just listen
to our hearts
their beating
She asked
are we in love

I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla goodbye
I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla

If I could trade places I would
I'd lay my life down
so you can be with family again
In my memory you will stay
We will be children forever
in a warm embrace

(Chorus)
We were just children
playing under a million
stars, they were so brilliant
We were resilient
to the troubles of the world
Living in a world that we were given
we would both just listen
to our hearts
their beating
She asked
are we in love

I search for words
Lord knows I try
I sat in my room
I sat in my room and cried

I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla goodbye
I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla

Fear in, fear out
I fear what I doubt
I doubt what I fear
Swing such a banner over yonder
until I am forced to stop
I shout
One tear, two tear, three
drip, drop
I sit on my throne and ponder
there is no "I" in chaos
who is at the door?
knock, knock

I answer not

Forget poetry
I am screaming

Am I alive
or am I dead

Do I need to include typos
14fe8heqi2regretthedayiwed...

Seriously
There is an unseen gravity
that pulls inside my head
stealing my energy
can you help me

Enough said
so say the voices
inside my head

I am nobody
until I die
or am I
gravely mistaken

I send this S.O.S.
these words of my distress

Am I alive
or am I dead

does it matter?
