Who I amI am defiant,
Finding ways to fight control,
Resisting the urge to follow the crowd,
And making my own way in this world.
I am jealous,
Of those who have a 'perfect life',
But in a way their lives aren't complete,
As the flaws in life make me real.
I am secretive,
Keeping my darkest thoughts inside,
Under watch and lock and key,
Pretending they do not scare me.
I am careless,
Forgetful and easily lost in the world,
Finding it hard to survive in a place,
Where it is difficult to get by.
I am timid,
More so than I seem at first,
But I fear the future and what it holds,
And how it will challenge me next.
I am mysterious,
Never letting my true self be seen,
By any except for those I trust,
Wearing many faces that are not my own.
I am calm,
In a sea of chaos that surrounds me,
Never losing myself completely,
To a world that does not seem to change.
I am instinctive,
Following my heart and what I see as right,
Letting no one get in the way,
And forging my own path.
I am sensitive,
To the fee
RunningWe're the ones running down the cobblestone street,
Tripping and stumbling but still pushing on,
Supporting each other with both words and thoughts,
As we struggle to keep hold of our strange relationship,
The bond that holds us together,
So even if one of us falls,
The other will be there to help,
To heal the rift, and take off running once more,
Down the cobblestone street.
EscapeThe darkness, growing by the day
Erasing hope and light
Replacing faith with torment,
Spreading, an infected blight
The darkness covers all i see
I'm losing myself inside
To sorrow hate and the fear that overcomes
All i once had, my pride
I've lost my light
To darkness rising
No way to fight
The darkness rising
I'm losing myself
To darkness rising
I want to escape
The darkness rising
But i can't....
Promises never dieI want to believe
That the promise will never die,
Never be forgotten, lost in memories,
Never to say goodbye.
Caught up in the web of lies,
Set up time after time,
To catch us, the unwary ones,
The victims of a victimless crime.
The promises of tomorrow fade in morning light,
Forgotten, lost in everlasting black,
Those who left them behind, alone,
And never again look back.
Hearts so easily swayed by feelings untold,
Against the world we all strive,
To keep our distant promises to each other,
Forever breathing and alive.
Lost within myselfFind me, I'm lost
Wandering under the moonlit sky
Lost in stars and worlds away,
Captivated by memories of times gone by.
Enter my world,
Where i reminisce and wait
For the ice around my heart to melt,
And prepare to face my fate.
Find me, drowning in darkness,
And the despair that lives within,
Falling, losing myself
Through walls that are paper thin.
Find me, and save me from myself,
Before i lose my way
Fall into your lasting embrace,
Where i wish to forever stay.
Life is but a DreamWe are just unnourished frail bodies,
overfed with white lies and short-lived-euphorias.
Books filled with black letters,
etching lurid images into our utmost dreams.
Veering us from the big picture...
the one we fail to paint ourselves.
Our fists much too busy with fights,
that we are bound to lose.
Too occupied in line waiting,
for creativity to be let loose like a stray dog.
As if we will find home in this pursuit of happiness...
but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
Which letter could it be?
To free us from havoc-stricken-thoughts?
They come and go, unending like 24 hour subway stations.
There's no break for this lonely man,
heaving every breathe of stale air
into my overused lungs...
Living in confined walls of flesh
held up with brittle paper-mache bones.
Which day is it that I will burst out from this cage of a life?
And hover with the Gods found in carefully binded bo
