Eyes in the night
Pierce through my soul
Shining so bright
Cover my windows
To keep them out
When the wind blows
I hear them shout
There are no words
Only silent screams
They cut like swords
Into my dreams
Real HeroesA real hero
Doesn't need a mask
Just before the time hits zero
They’re up to the task
A helping hand
Is their weapon of choice
The final stand
Is of the voice
With their back to the wall
They hold no grudge
Even if they’re forced to crawl
They’re not one to judge
Whistle BlowerDive into the void of endless space
I leave no path for you to trace
It’s not because I don’t want you here
I just don’t need something else to fear
I’m not afraid that you’ll sell my soul
Or attempt to reach some other goal
This is burning a hole through my heart
Should I say what’s tearing me apart?
I’ve made my choice, but I won’t tell you
For fear of what you can do
A whistle blower would mean my end
For I would have no way to defend
Sapphire StarsThe silken silence
Seals the senses
Stealing the starlight
Saving our sweet solace
See the seconds
Slither to the sea
Sending the smoke
Sailing to the sun
Savor the sensation
Say your sentence
Slip into your statue
Sign the stationary
Step into safety
Or suffer the seduction
I’ll share my shield
If you sheath your sword
Slice my strings
The silver skyline
NothingIt seems like every time I want someone to talk to
Everyone just fades away
Maybe I’m just looking for attention
Maybe they truly loathe my pathetic existence
If only I would just leave them alone
They could get on with their lives
Why do I do this to each one of them
Why haven’t I ended it all yet
Maybe I’m just too afraid
Of what lies beyond
What is a definite gap between being alive and something else
For me is just a blurred mess
Sometimes there’s things that hint one way
But within seconds I see it’s the complete opposite
My writing this may be proof enough to you that I’m alive
But inside, inside I am as dead and as black as the deepest reaches of space
Lifeless, and silent
Waiting for something to ignite the fumes
Waiting for something to live for
Something to die for
And yet there is nothing
Not a single word
Not a single thought
But nothing is something
If there is nothing left inside my own body
Then I will do my very best to fill i
Mirrored EyesMy mirrored eyes
Reflect what people see
Not my lies
But yet it’s me
Cast the shadow
That steals my form
Release the arrow
Unleash the storm
The damns break apart
Sealed inside no more
It took but a single dart
To penetrate the core
You've unleashed a sea
That was locked away
Deep inside of me
All my fears are washed away
But then I return
To the place I flood
What didn't burn
Is stained in blood
I clean the mess
I left behind
The game of chess
At last aligned
AmbianceWhy do we still live?
With nothing left to give
Do we have some hidden purpose?
That will never surface
Maybe we aren't supposed to know
Forced to choose a new path to go
I lost the map they gave me at the beginning
And now my world is spinning
I left the path in hopes of clearing my head
But I was lost and started the wrong way instead
Robbed of my innocence
And absorbed by ambiance
Deny My PlaceI though there was a time
I was your friend
Is it a crime
To wish for your end
You denied me my place
The one I earned
Forget my face
I think I've learned
I don’t belong
I realize now
I would say so long
But I don’t know how
EgoSo many words
I wish I could say
So many birds
That wish they could stay
We always think
We’re all alone
The final link
The perfect tone
Even the purest heart
Holds some darkness inside
Never just a single part
There’s something we all hide
You are EverythingYou are amazing.
You are the smiling face,
That gave that kid
Better hope for this place.
You are the helping hand,
Even if you didn’t know it,
That helped everything turn out
Better than planned.
You are the voice
That helped someone
Make a vital choice.
You are the joke
That made them laugh
And gave them that stroke
Of happiness that they needed.
You are the bright eyes
That light the way,
A lantern of hope
Through the fog of lies.
You are their push towards
Their positive afterwards.
And you are far from worthless.
Are the most important person
In the world.
We are all characters
In someone else’s story.
That pivotal point,
That pushes them from misery,
And leads them to their glory.
I Will Love MyselfSilence was at my doorstep.
Rain fell from the storms of my eyes
and hit the cold earth of my cheeks.
Sunlight fell down my face
in gentle waves.
And blood tinted lips
smiled only slightly.
The gentle spring
that bloomed inside my chest
had begun to grow
and replace the winter
whose frost had held tightly
onto my heart.
Silence was welcome.
Tears were shed in joy.
Sunlight was here to warm
and blood to live.
This was it.
I had made it.
I know who I am.
Eat Something, PleaseIt's your fault, you know.
It's you who's spewing your guts into the toilet,
like powdery snow.
Every day you hit the bathroom floor,
grasp the porcelain rims,
and your vomit echo through the door.
I hate it! I hate it, more than anything in the world.
I wish you could just tape your mouth shut,
and your noises I could ignore.
It's all about you, and the agony you've been through,
but through your selfishness and saliva,
I hope you realize I suffer too.
I stay by your side when you treat me like crap.
When you scream at me and yell,
I've always had your back.
How I wish I could purge when life gets too tough,
I wish I could be weak like you,
but my strength is just too much.
How wonderful it would be, if you could take my place,
and when you saw your broken form,
then you would see the pathetic look on your face.
But “plop, plop, plop” your vomit continues to roar,
and through the repetitive screech,
how I wish I could slam the door.
I wish I had the strength to leave your
I Won't Let You Become Like MeI saw you fall to the floor.
Because you couldn’t take this anymore.
You laid there and said to me,
Through tears that fell from your eyes,
“Who cares if I were to die?”
Reminding me of those hundreds of times,
I’ve seen people bend and break.
I’ve gotten so used to smiles that are nothing more than fake.
I remembered standing by silently,
Watching everyone collapse around me.
Seeing bottles scattered around,
Broken glass covered the ground.
And I wondered to myself,
“Is he ever going to get better?”
And I watched you as you died,
Slowly tearing yourself apart from the inside.
Memories are still flickering,
Behind my eyes.
I suddenly remember my own cries,
For someone to save me.
Because I was so close to falling,
That the abyss seemed more inviting,
Than trying to hang on for a moment longer.
Because my arms were too tired,
To hold on.
I am back in reality,
Watching you fade away.
And I see myself,
And the countless other people I’ve wit
