If a demon steals my angel,
Is it right to steal her back?
If I am an angel myself,
Is it right to perform such an act?
Will my deed, though with good intentions,
End with the most terrible of actions?
If my angel truly loves this demon,
Is it right to ignore its torturous affections?
If we were all souls of dangerous black,
Would it matter what I did to attack?
If they are loving yet torturing each other,
Is it right if it is only space they lack?
If it is unhealthy, risky, and they admit it,
Then perhaps it really is true that they befit it.

I hope she loves you like I did.
I hope she looks into and not through those hazel eyes like I did.
I hope she plays with your scruffy hair like I did.
I hope she serenades you to sleep like I did.

I hope you will forget because I haven't.
I hope you will see light in all futures because I haven't.
I hope you will be kind and forgiving because I haven't.
I hope you find joy in someone else because I haven't.

I hope I can see the exit, because I'm blind.
I hope someday the wandering stars will align.
I hope I will seek a tongue that is not maligned.
I hope I can open the door to a new life because I'm confined.

Andrew 5d

Roses are red
Leaves are green
But not as green with envy as I am for the man who spends all his time with you

Eleni 6d

Out of the ashes I rise;
Blistered limbs, scalded eyes

Like Venus, born at sea
And arrive at shore underneath olive trees.

The rekindling of the fire has set me free- but Zephyrus' wind blows at me.

I Athena and you the Centaur;
You long to hold me, but I carry the Halberd.

I am a creature of reason and wisdom
And You, the outsider of my Kingdom.

And so the only right conclusion is hatred: malice as sharp as Caravaggio and Baglione.

So descend back into Oblivion, Lucifer
For those that abuse, will suffer.

1 'Like Venus, born at sea'  a reference to Sandro Botticelli's painting 'The Birth of Venus'.

2 'Zephyrus' wind blows at me' another reference to Botticelli in his painting 'Primavera' in which Chloris was abducted by Zephyrus, God of the West Wind.

3 'I Athena... but I carry the Halberd' a painting by Botticelli called 'Pallas and The Centaur' Centaurs, the "horsemen" were known for their seducing and lustful nature, whereas Athena was the Greek Goddess of reason. She thus pushes the Centaur away with her weapon.

4 'malice as sharp as Caravaggio and Baglione' refers to the two Italian nemesis painters who often criticised eachother in their art and filed lawsuits against one another.

You don't know
how good you have it
there in the window,
mouth sealed shut,
eyes shut, too,
never looking any
better or any worse
than the next guy.
Or, at least never knowing.

I want to be your number one
I don't want to second-guess
How can I tell I'm your number one?
I'm too scared to ask
I hesitate

There's a storm raging
Inside of my stomach
The weight in my mind
Is getting too heavy to hold
I can't seem to focus enough
There are voices in my head
Scheming, Planning where this should end
The life I live has turned upside down
And nobody's around to pull me out
Nobody's around to save me from myself
Oh dear god I don't want your help

In your eyes
I can see how much you couldn't careless
In your eyes
Your Independence shines again
Tell me what do you see in mine?
Can you see all the tears I've cried?
Tell me what do you see in my eyes
Can you see the pain that burns deep inside
In your eyes
I can see the water washing away your soul
Tell me what do you see in mine?

How's it make you feel?
To know your the one
Who brought out the monster in me
What's your explanation?
For bringing forward all these demons
How's it make you feel
To know your the one
Who has brought me to this
Oh, baby, I'm a monster
Lurking in the darkness of the night
Oh, baby, I'm a monster
Watch your step before my teeth sink in
You are the one who conjured all of it.

Can you feel the hurt
Taking control of your body
When you know you lose
The one who means the most to you
And somethings missing
In the darkness of the night
Oh dear lord where is my light
Something doesn't feel right
Something in your stomach turns
The memories you left yearn
And you thought you could learn
From all the mistakes you made
But it was worth every risk you'd take
Because it was her who made you smile
It was her who made you laugh
She was the one who saw you cry
And I wasn't man enough to admit you were right
I wasn't man enough to see that you saw inside of me
Why'd we go and say goodbye
Why'd we go and burn the photographs
Now my mind knows things won't go back to the way they were
But there was nobody else I loved more than her

In your eyes
I can see how much you couldn't careless
In your eyes
Your Independence shines again
Tell me what do you see in mine?
Can you see all the tears I've cried?
Tell me what do you see in my eyes
Can you see the pain that burns deep inside
In your eyes
I can see the water washing away your soul
Tell me what do you see in mine?

How's it make you feel?
To know your the one
Who brought out the monster in me
What's your explanation?
For bringing forward all these demons
How's it make you feel
To know your the one
Who has brought me to this
Oh, baby, I'm a monster
Lurking in the darkness of the night
Oh, baby, I'm a monster
Watch your step before my teeth sink in
You are the one who conjured all of it.

I'm the creation of your own making
What goes wrong falls onto you shoulders
But it's not just you who's to blame
I'm the stupid one for falling for your game
And if you thought this was ugly
You haven't experienced the worst
It's coming swiftly and quick
There's nothing stopping this
Like a wave crashing upon the beach
There is no stopping this
He's gonna lose himself in the darkness of the night
There are no stars lighting up his skies
Just a sensation of revenge burning inside
There's no soul left to save
But I can see into your eyes
What do you see in mine?

In your eyes
I can see how much you couldn't careless
In your eyes
Your Independence shines again
Tell me what do you see in mine?
Can you see all the tears I've cried?
Tell me what do you see in my eyes
Can you see the pain that burns deep inside
In your eyes
I can see the water washing away your soul
Tell me what do you see in mine?

How's it make you feel?
To know your the one
Who brought out the monster in me
What's your explanation?
For bringing forward all these demons
Hows it make you feel
To know your the one
Who has brought me to this
Oh, baby, I'm a monster
Lurking in the darkness of the night
Oh, baby, I'm a monster
Watch your step before my teeth sink in
You are the one who conjured all of it.

I remember walking down the street
Hand in hand you next to me
And I wish I could relive those moments
They were the ones that made me feel close
And now I only see you from a distance
And I die inside every time
Because I know you'll never be mine
I wonder if you ever think of me
Because I know I always think about you
Everything we could have been
Everything I could have done with you
Now it's all just a dream
Because you are so out of reach

And you've become every regret
That I just can't face
You've become the reason
That I stay awake so late
And I can't find a way
To make the thoughts of you fade
I can't find a way
To walk the other way

I can't look at you anymore
It hurts to bad at the core
I lose myself in frustration
That I was never good enough for you
Take another pill just to help me deal
Every night an endless fight
Your locked here
in this never-ending love of mine

You were everything I wanted to be with
Every time I look into your blue eyes
You sent shivers down my spine
Every time that you cried
I could feel your hurt inside
And tears would run down these cheeks
I would hold you close to me
But I couldn't make any bigger moves
Looking back I should have taken the risk
And kissed those beautiful lips

And you've become every regret
That I just can't face
You've become the reason
That I stay awake so late
And I can't find a way
To make the thoughts of you fade
I can't find a way
To walk the other way

I can't look at you anymore
It hurts to bad at the core
I lose myself in frustration
That I was never good enough for you
Take another pill just to help me deal
Every night an endless fight
Your locked here
in this never-ending love of mine

Every time I see you with him
The jealousy starts kicking in
And I can't handle it
I can't handle the reasons
Behind why I left
Maybe they weren't good enough
Another flashback kicks in
I close my eyes and remember
The time I saw you undress
Even though you told me not to look
I couldn't help it I was hooked
Maybe I should have made a move
But I never wanted to hurt you
By making the wrong decisions
Maybe that's what happened
In the end
Dropped your heart out of these shaking hands

And you've become every regret
That I just can't face
You've become the reason
That I stay awake so late
And I can't find a way
To make the thoughts of you fade
I can't find a way
To walk the other way

I can't look at you anymore
It hurts to bad at the core
I lose myself in frustration
That I was never good enough for you
Take another pill just to help me deal
Every night an endless fight
Your locked here
in this never-ending love of mine

All this emotion swirls inside
All this hurt swells up my mind
The darkness covers up these skies
Salty tears flow out these eyes
This is my last goodbye
One last time this is goodnight.
