When the pain sets in and your heart begins to sink, you almost forget you were born a human and not a robot as the weight suddenly becomes too heavy to hold. As you bite down on your quivering lips and inhale through your nose.
We sit on a bench in Stuyvesant Town, stumbling into one another with words: Perhaps I am submerged in your heart like one of those pennies in the fountain; Perhaps that saxophone player does have
Memories. Scrapbook full of memories Most dear to me. Sudden separation from civilization,

The moonlit beach a ribbon in the night, I hear the salty waves with their loud quietness. My footprints mar the unblemished sand. Me on the island, the island in me.   I sit all alone on my “darkling” shore
Undertaking this leap to a far off place Caused my mind to unravel And become displaced But i really thought you would quit, Take your life,

All I need is you, One plus one equals two. All I need is your smile, You keep me happy for quite a while. All I need is your love, The clouds you make me fly above. All I need is us,
At daybreak, the world seems at ease At twilight, the horrors of nightmare seize; They seize the light and lock it away, They throw away the hope, they will leave you astray. So when posed with the question: What can you live without? Light my fri
There is something so beautiful about youth. There is something so beautiful about that captured recklessness. Something about those hidden smirks and intensified sensations. Youth is revered, that is why so many strive to conserve it; Our soft, s

Joined at the hip are my sister and me, If I tumbled off a ship I would grab her, and she would grab me. Living on an island would not be so dreary, For my twin sister would always be near me.
Before anything else Before food Before water Before shelter I need love.    My family drives me crazy But I know that they love me Even when I got a tattoo I knew they were upset
All I need is love. When the world is crashing down around me, When I feel I can't step forward, Your touch and your words help me go on.   All I need is love.
The sun beat down on her face in harsh rays The wind blew around her She could smell the salt from the water The concrete scratched at her feet

I cannot live with clouds that demand to be seen and stars that are covered over with falsely-applied beauty. 
 I cannot live with black skies that force darkness into hearts
It’s scorching hot here,On my deserted island,Where the sun blazes all year!   My throat is just so dry,I need a drink,Cool droplets from the sky!  
If you were to leave, Then I'd be so sad. You mean so much to me, You make me so glad.   I've known you for ever, At least it seems so. It never fails to amaze me How much we still grow.
