A nest without a bird
A swing that isn’t swung
An empty auditorium
A song that’s never sung
A garden without flowers
A house that’s not a home
A glove without its other half
A pond without a gnome!
A smile without the twinkle
A tonic without the gin
A gear that’s missing all its teeth
A shark without its fin
A book that lost the final page
A car without a tyre
A single sock without its pair
A spark without the fire
A party no one came to
A whodunnit without a clue
A hip without a hooray
A me without my you

Wake up with heart ache and regrets
With ocean eyes
Snowing on bare lips
That havent felt your kiss in awhile
Cold shoulders couldnt be more arctic
Anti-love is the game
Everyone is playing
So those of us who still have hearts to give
Wake up with nothing but aches and regrets
And eyes filled like oceans

I'm missing a piece ,
a piece of my heart .
and that piece died years ago ..
literally ,
you were my light in a dark room .
my laughter when all I wanted to do was cry ,
you were
you are
my sister .

I'm sorry I couldn't save you.
I'm sorry I wasn't there to see the light
leave your eyes
oh how alone you must have felt
to have to die in a bathroom with nothing but
bubbles and
a bathtub of water .
"mom , help!"
"***** , save me!"
"baby brothers , are you there?"
"can anyone hear me?!"
if only you could have spoken ,
I wonder what you would have yelled .
oh , poo , I am sorry that I wasn't there .
I'm sorry that it was you
and not me .
I would give you my life if I could ,
wrap it up in newspaper just so I could see you
tear it apart
just one more time ,
for old times sake .
maybe play some music so I can see your
smile
light up my room
and light up my life .
you will forever be my missing piece  ,
my puzzle will never be complete
without you ..

Love ,
***** .
I miss you *****..

I'M SEARCHIN' EVERYDAY
NOTHING COMES MY WAY
STILL CAN'T FIND THE MELODY
TO FINALLY COMPLETE THE ESSAY.

I'VE MET THIS SWAIN SMILIN' AT ME
CLAIMING THAT HE HAS THE MELODY
AND CAN GET ME OUT OF MELANCHOLY.
BUT I JUST LAUGHED AT HIM AND SAID,
"YOU DON'T HAVE THE HARMONY."

I KEEP ON SEARCHIN'
BUT STILL FOUND NOTHING.
THE SWAIN HOLD MY HAND SAYING,
"IM THE ONE YOU'RE LOOKING
AND THE PIECE THAT IS MISSING."

AS I LOOK INTO THIS HANDSOME SWAIN,
I'VE FOUND THE MELODY FLAUNTING IN THE RAIN.
HE IS THE ONE WHO TAKE OFF ALL OF MY PAIN.
HE REALLY IS THE MISSING PIECE
THAT MADE ME SING AGAIN.
To those who have been there but took for granted, continue to show your love. Someday, it'll all comes back to you.

How are you still here?
Are you locked in a maze of my memories?
Trying franticly to escape and
screaming your way into consciousness

New pills but the same tunes
It’s been so long and yet some days

It feels like I’m still trapped

In the personal hell you constructed for me

You owned not only the key
Nor the concrete windowless walls
Nor the velvet-thick darkness surrounding me
as I begged for you to let your light in again
but you owned me too

You didn’t even need chains to keep me there
My heavy heart held me down more than any metal could
I can’t even say I escaped
Because you

let me go

Twice

Both times reopening the deadbolts to call me back
And obediently I came crawling in

And then you shoved me out again
This time without warning

The light burned my eyes and my skin
My hands bled as I scratched at the door
Tears choking all the words back to my stomach
And when I couldn’t feel anything anymore
I grabbed a knife

and carved a map into my skin
Desperately waiting for you to call me back again
But you didn’t

And I’d like to say that I’m ok now
That you no longer torture me
But I’m not.
And you still do.

Of course she helps
I swear someone sent an Angel
And I’m not worthy of her
But she still loves me
And I’m terrified that one day
my demons will tear through her wings
just like you tore through my heart
And though she helps mend it again

It will never be whole again

Because you stole a piece for your own sick collection.

At first I had nothing, but was not empty
Until I met you and changed me completely
You filled me, little by little
1/8, 1/4, to half full
Until to the brim you filled me.


I am already full, I could say
But still, you continued pouring.
Those emotions you gave were overflowing
I thought I couldn't handle,


So I told you to stop
I chased you away
Until you were gone
I told you to comeback, but it's already done


The feelings that you once overflowed,
Was there no more
All I could do is to keep these feeling you left for me
To let it linger inside me


But as time passes by,
The world, the nature, the sun won't let me
Evaporation gets the best of me


And now,
Little by little
The emotions I treasured was fading
The feelings were fleeting


But I won't let the world get on my way
I shall conquer all the odds
Just so that a part of you could stay


In the darkness I shall seek shelter
To hide from the sun
To protect the fragments of my lover

I laugh at the sun, and I mock the world
For I am able to protect of what's left
But most of all
I pity myself

For trying to satisfy one's self from that tattered dream

Pretending to be happy for keeping a half of it
Yes a half, but not half full, As it once was
Because when he left, it can never be half full
But will always be half empty.
So, what is it for you? Are you half full or half empty???
Erenn's Collabs Jan 2015
Your toothbrush still has the paste on it
The plate shattered in fragments of you
The glass still has your lip stain on
This bed I'm sleeping in still smells of you
Lying to myself that you'll comeback
Leaving him and crying and knocking on the door begging to come in
But hey, who am I kidding..

Put the car in reverse as you slipped into neutral
A gear must've rusted; I trust the machine busted
because things became mechanical, to be truthful
Major malfunction--our junction ceased to be lusted
by my soul's circuits and tired wires proved to be liars
I thought I knew what I wanted, but I was wrong
My cogs, guts and screws became loose in the mire 
of our muddled love, where I did no belong


What worth is living when everything ran rampant silhouettes of you
Running through these polaroids on the wall
I did get out, but it's you everywhere I go
You have etched this fire in my heart 
When it burns when we're in love
And when it burns my soul 
To ashes remnants of you
Trying my best to get out
I knew you were trouble from the start
But my heart's like a glass thirsts for that lust
Now broken brittled into pieces
Fragments no longer could be fitted 

Puzzle pieces and Polaroids for the incinerator
A conflagration consuming our condition
where you fail to see what I fail to do
I may be coldly pieced together, but I'm no traitor

*My love was just another raggedy rendition,
But your eyes are the demons haunting you
