Let us speak only in tongues
For all that wasn't made obvious
May present its true meaning in the unintelligible

Let us converse in stanzas
For what wasn't clearly heard
May perhaps show itself between these lines

Let us exaggerate and romanticise
For all that was spouted bland
May be heightened to receive some light

Let us exchange and trade through poetry
For all that's lacking in common words
May secure a foothold in the readers' hearts

(i hear this as more of a rap in my head)

I suppose might just be a day or two late
and a few dollars short to get these things i want
but i cant stand the thought of giving up
i'm a better man than that on my worst **** day
a stronger force the world has never seen than me right now
so why in the hell do i feel like a chump
why do i feel like i threw it all away

nobody asks for life to be hard
life starts now so if you don't get up and start
you'll be looking back at a life that started yesterday
meanwhile you were standing there with you're  eyes shut closed
behind the game, fighting to catch up to the rest of them
and that's a race that most of them will try so hard to stay ahead
try so hard to keep what they have and never give up
never slow down even though i it's just so **** easy
so **** easy
to get lost
when the tracks not round and there are no directions to be found

keep you're form and steady your breath
run like hell till theres nothing left
never give up because it's hard to get back going
never lose sight of the way you should go
these paths grow up quickly and turn you around
before you know it you're back at the start
out of breath, out of heart because you wasted it all

nobody asks for life to be hard
life starts now so if you don't get up and start
you'll be looking back at a life that started yesterday
meanwhile you were standing there with you're  eyes shut closed
behind the game, fighting to catch up to the rest of them
and that's a race that most of them will try so hard to stay ahead
try so hard to keep what they have and never give up
never slow down even though i it's just so **** easy
so **** easy
to get lost
when the tracks not round and there are no directions to be found

so i find it so impossible for me
to give up on things and people so easily
so i wont do it, i just cant
imma' pick my head up and be a champ
win that race
take whats mine
never gonna stop
never stop trying

You're like the harmony in my sad song
Tapping my feet while my melancholy sings
I hold your name at the tip of my tongue
Savoring it like my new favorite dish
Your eyes are the ones I get lost in
Finding the peace to guide me home at last
The best thing I have ever done in my life
Was to let you to course and pulse within me
I was the bit of darkness in your bright room
But i want to be the log that feeds your fire
The one that keeps you well lit year round

When there is something electric in the touch
a sensation that reverberates throughout your being
warms the soul, mending cracks and wounds
that's when you know it is beyond good and real

when a kiss takes you to the deepest part of who you are
resurrects the child that once played in your heart
takes all of the pleasure you've ever felt and multiplies it
that's when you know you should never let go

when an hour with this person feels like a fleeting moment
you wish you could stretch a glance into an eternity
so that you never have to know what it’s like to miss them
that's is undeniably where you should strive to be

this whole human race is crazy
I walk upon a ground that craves me
no one ever said that this world would please you
and no one sees you

it really isn't hard to please me
but the beginning or the end ain't easy
just a due to be paid to the ground that craves you
and no one saves you

I've always been the strong one. When everything goes wrong, I'm always the one that tries to make everyone feel better. No matter what the situation is. I've always been this way. Never let anyone see me cry. They will think I'm weak. I have to be strong. Even as a child. Growing up the way I did was hard. So hard. But I handled it. I stayed strong. Like I always do. Ive always bottled the emotions. Wait until no one is around to let them out.  It's as if my catch frase is "I'm okay." And I always say that because I know that no matter how I feel at the moment, I will be okay. I don't have any other options.  I have to be okay. I always have to be okay. I can't be weak. I can't be fragile. I can't be afraid.  I have to be strong. No matter what. This is how I've lived my entire life. But now... After this... I can't do it anymore. I just cant. I tried so hard to stay strong. But I couldn't fight back the tears. So I ran to be alone. I couldn't let them see what they've done to me. Run. Cry. Even if only for a minute. Then put on the strong face again. Because I can handle anything, right? At least thats what I thought.... It's been days now. I can't keep hiding these feelings. I feel like I'm bursting at the seams. So I wait until everyone is asleep, and take a shower. No one can hear me cry or see my tears under the water.  I don't know what else to do. Im trying so hard to be okay but, I'm just... Not. I'm terrified. I'm angry. I'm crushed. I'm falling apart. I'm not okay.
