    ~Rose~

    My life is stained and battered
    Just like a red rose
    That is beaten and tattered
    And coming to a close
    I'm a dark pitfall
    Sitting in a white abyss
    I look down the hall
    And there's something I miss
    A reason for living
    So faint and yet so clear
    For what am I striving
    In the blackened night's air
    With smiles all hidden
    And a frown not yet found
    The dreams unbidden
    Are buried in the ground
    For what am I keeping
    Alive and unknowing
    For life I am bleeding
    My body it is showing
    All of the harsh pain
    And all the trust I lost
    All coming in crimson rain
    That is the cost

    ~I Need Help~
    I need help
    I've never said before
    I need help
    And now I need more
    I need help
    Finally this line is true
    I need help
    And only from you
    I need help
    To stop all this pain
    I need help
    There's nothing to gain
    I need help
    I told you it is true
    I need help
    And I only need it from you

    Child
    ------------------------------
    A child sits in the corner
    Until this very day
    Her parents have torn her
    What can I say
    I've watched her sit there
    And all she does is cry
    I want her to know I'm here
    But I can't why
    Why does the pain
    Of sorrow and strife
    Defeat what I would gain
    If I came into her life
    He worn body forced on the edge
    Yet I can't heal her
    Keep her from that ledge
    I can't close what they tore
    I can just sit and watch
    With a horrible need
    From behind the latch
    I watch her she bleeds
    Her tears fall down
    And all I can think
    Is why hadn't I known
    Her father only drinks

    The pain is here
    Like a thousand searing knifes
    The sorrow and pain
    Captured in my eyes
    When the destruction still reigns
    I tried to hide all the anger and pain
    When sorrow and panic
    Is all I have it seems
    Even the the hauntings
    Stick in my dreams
    With hurt ravaging my body
    Showing in scars and
    Even occaisionally in blackened cigarettes
    I turn to one person
    Someone I will always regret
    The one I know pained me
    The one I know hurts
    The one who doesn't know
    But he's dead in my book
    He never understood
    The sorrow the pain
    He beat and beat
    Until I couldn't cry any longer
    Until I found I couldn't bruise anymore
    I even have scars
    From the metal the wood
    From the chair breaking
    Along with my rib
    I've always tried to run away
    But there's something I couldn't
    Run and stop protecting
    My siblings my brother
    He'd die from my father if I wasn't there
    He's broken my rib
    And on my brother he'd break more
    He'd kill him I knew
    So I had to settle the score
    I took a blade
    And did what he hated the most
    I cut my arm deep
    Against what he thought
    Then with my arm bleeding
    I covered it up
    He grabbed my brother
    So I tackled him
    He pushed my back
    Through the door
    Into my room where my love sat
    She started to cry
    I did as well
    And all of the pain showed in tears
    Never before had I cried like that
    And never will I ever again

    Finally It's Done
    -----------------------------
    I stand here on the edge
    Of a twenty story ledge
    Still wondering why
    I failed the first try
    Why my life didn't end
    When my blade started to bend
    Breaking on my bone
    And cutting through the stone
    The blade I always mention
    Will always relieve the tension
    Of my hellhole life
    Always filled with strife
    I've looked down once
    And now I have a hunch
    It's my time to jump
    In my throat is a lump
    I take one step futher
    And try not to think of her
    One more step to be gone
    With only minutes until dawn
    I take that final lunge
    And into the darkness I plunge

    What is the pain
    --------------------
    What is the pain I feel
    But a torn open scar
    Never ready to heal
    What is the sorrow I see
    But a smile that bore
    Only suttle grief for me
    What are the screams I hear
    But the haunted promise
    That someday death will be near
    What are the words
    Whispered behind my back
    Cutting my strength like a swords
    What is that feeling
    I get when I bleed
    The grin I get when my life I'm stealing
    What is this here
    But words on a page
    Words that I could easily tear
    What is the meaning
    Behind texted ink
    When thoughts are waneing
    Really I mean
    What is the thing
    That makes us go on
    And do all these things
    That makes us feel
    Sorrowed and pained
    What is the reason
    Why try these pains
    Why in the world
    Continue and go on
    Why shouldn't I
    Just admit it
    I'm gone

    Fully Alive Lyrics



    Telling Layla's story spoken
    'Bout how all her bones are broken
    Hammers fall on all the pieces
    Two months in the cover creases

    Here she stands today
    In her brilliant shiny way

    Fully alive
    More than most
    Ready to smile and love life
    Fully alive
    More than most
    Ready to smile and love life

    All my complaints shrink to nothing
    I'm ashamed of all my somethings
    She's glad for one day of comfort
    Only because she has suffered

    Here she stands today,
    In her brilliant shiny way...

    Fully alive
    More than most
    Ready to smile and love life
    Fully alive
    Now she knows how to believe in futures

    Fully alive
    More than most
    Ready to smile and love life
    Fully alive
    Now she knows how to believe in futures

    Fully alive
    More than most
    Ready to smile and love life
    Fully alive
    Now she knows how to believe in futures

    I'm So Sick Lyrics



    I will break into your thoughts
    With what's written on my heart
    I will break, break

    I'm so sick,
    Infected with where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss,
    Selfishness
    I'm so sick
    I'm so sick

    If you want more of this
    We can push out, sell out, die out
    So you'll shut up
    And stay sleeping
    With my screaming in your itching ears

    I'm so sick,
    Infected with where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss,
    Selfishness
    I'm so sick
    I'm so sick

    Hear it, I'm screaming it
    You're heeding to it now

    Hear it! I'm screaming it!
    You tremble at this sound

    You sink into my clothes
    And this invasion
    Makes me feel
    Worthless, hopeless, sick

    I'm so sick,
    Infected with where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss,
    Selfishness
    I'm so sick
    I'm so sick

    I'm so sick
    Infected with where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss, selfishness
    I'm so
    I'm so sick
    I'm so
    I'm so sick

    So I Thought Lyrics



    All your twisted thoughts free flow
    To everlasting memories
    Show soul
    Kiss the stars with me
    And dread the wait for
    Stupid calls returning to us to life
    We say to those who are in love
    It can't be true 'cause we're too young
    I know that's true because so long I was
    So in love with you
    So I thought

    A year goes by
    And I can't talk about it

    On my knees
    Dim lighted room
    Thoughts free flow try to consume myself in this
    I'm not faithless
    Just paranoid of getting lost or that I might lose
    Ignorance is bliss cherish it
    Pretty neighborhoods you learn to much to hold
    Believe it not
    And fight the tears
    With pretty smiles and lies about the times

    A year goes by
    And I can't talk about it
    The times weren't right
    And I couldn't talk about it

    Choris Romance says goodnight
    Close your eyes and I'll close mine
    Remember you, remember me
    Hurt the first, the last between
    Choris Romance says goodnight
    Close your eyes and I'll close mine
    Remember you, remember me
    Hurt the first, the last, between

    And I'm praying that we will see
    Something there in between
    Then and there that exceeds all we can dream
    So we can talk about it

    Choris Romance says goodnight
    Close your eyes and I'll close mine
    Remember you, remember me
    Hurt the first, the last between
    Choris Romance says goodnight
    Close your eyes and I'll close mine
    Remember you, remember me
    Hurt the first, the last healing

    And I'm praying that we will see
    Something there in between
    Then and there that exceeds all we can dream

    And all these twisted thoughts I see
    Jesus there in between
    And all these twisted thoughts I see
    Jesus there in between

    Speak Lyrics



    Free, you better love me
    And hide or run away
    From all your yesterdays

    Speak the truth or make your peace some other way, oh yea, yea
    Well I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
    Will speak to me!

    And way beyond your controlling mind (mind)
    And no more believing in all your precious lies

    Speak the truth or make your peace some other way, oh yea, yea
    Well I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
    Will speak to me!
    Speak the truth or make your peace some other way, oh yea, yea, yea
    Well I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
    Will speak to me!

    Speak the truth or make your peace some other way, oh yea, yea
    Well I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
    Will speak to me!
    Speak the truth or make your peace some other way, oh yea, yea
    Well I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
    Will speak to me!
    Speak

    Speak
    Speak

    Running Blind Lyrics



    Can’t find the answers
    I’ve been crawling on my knees
    Looking for anything
    To keep me from drowning
    Promises have been turned to lies
    Can’t even be honest inside
    Now I’m running backward
    Watching my life wave me goodbye

    Running blind
    I’m running blind
    Somebody help me see I’m running blind

    Searching for nothing
    Wondering if I’ll change
    I’m trying everything
    But everything still stays the same
    I thought if I showed you I could fly
    Wouldn’t need anyone by my side
    Now I’m running backward
    With broken wings I know I’ll die

    Running blind
    I’m running blind
    Somebody help me see I’m running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind

    I can’t find the answers
    I’ve been crawling on my knees
    Looking for anything
    To keep me from drowning
    I’m running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind
    Running blind

    Serenity Lyrics



    As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
    I take another deep breath
    And feel the wind pass through my body
    I'm the one in your soul
    Reflecting inner light
    Protect the ones who hold you
    Cradling your inner child

    I need serenity
    In a place where I can hide
    I need serenity
    Nothing changes, days go by

    Where do we go when we just don't know
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
    And when will we learn to control

    Tragic visions slowly stole my life
    Tore away everything
    Cheating me out of my time
    I'm the one who loves you
    No matter wrong or right
    And every day I hold you
    I hold you with my inner child

    I need serenity
    In a place where I can hide
    I need serenity
    Nothing changes, days go by

    Where do we go when we just don't know
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
    And when will we learn to control

    Where do we go when we just don't know
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
    And when will we learn to control

    I need serenity [x2]

    Whatever Lyrics



    And I wonder day to day
    I don't like you anyway
    I don't need your shit today
    You're pathetic in your own way

    I feel for you
    (better fuckin go away)
    I will behave
    Better fuckin go away
    I'm doing the best I ever did
    I'm doing the best that I can
    I'm doing the best I ever did

    I don't need to fantasize
    You are my pet all the time
    I don't mind if you go blind
    You get what you get
    Until you through with my life

    I feel for you
    (better fuckin go away)
    I will behave
    You better go away [x2]

    I'm doing the best I ever did
    I'm doing the best that I can
    I'm doing the best I ever did
    Now go away [x2]

    I'm doing the best I ever did
    (go away)
    I'm doing the best that I can
    (go away) [x2]

    I'm doing the best I ever did
    I'm doing the best that I can
    I'm doing the best I ever did
    Now go away!

    I'm doing the best I ever did
    I'm doing the best that I can
    I'm doing the best I ever did
    Now go away [x2]

    Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
    Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

    I'm doing the best I ever did
    (go away)
    I'm doing the best that I can

    I have a new poem to post here, I hope you all like it.

    REASON
    Things are supposed to happen for a reason
    But it doesn't seem fair
    Souls needs held in high treason
    Redemption they seek to share
    You and me aren't so different it seems
    For we both shed tears
    Redemption at last negating our past
    And demolishing our fears
    We can only hope such a day will come
    And time will heal all our scars
    But silence it seems swallows more than some
    But we keep our eyes looking at the stars
