I saw you today. You sat there and laughed. I was near certain That I was going mad. I watched you sit there, With a laugh and a smile. I nearly started crying. Haven't seen them in a while.
I remember your smile, The way it would light up your face. How your laugh would sound, And sing throughout my body. I remember your anger, And how it would scare me. The way you'd get sad

In this dark and open public space, My eyes meet the gaze of a warm, but ghostly face. I felt alone until the face appeared across the way, My loneliness would escape me and I could not look away.
Those we love don't go away They walk beside us each and  everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, So loved, so missed, so very dear.   Your life was a blessing Your memory a treasure,
writing, seeing behind teary eyes: lies in disguise; love and hate, war, we paint
such a simple time with love in your eyes it was but a rhyme filled with sorrowed sighs   Ivory Skin Satin Sheets You were MY in But you never released

She sits on the swing right outside her window.   The window where she use to sneak out of every night.   It's 1 in the morning and her thoughts lead her back.

I should be sleeping, Smiling at sweet and happy dreams, But instead I lay here in bed, Anxiously awaiting day break. I fear closing my eyes, And wandering into my head
Biten whole, broken sand and sole, shreds of something they said Love-and-loss: same breath, same bed.  Forget the good and its sunny smile - 'Cause - you-and-me were all I had    
Look at me. No, look at ME. What do you see? Do you see the me in me? Or do you see the me you only know? The me outside of me? The me that everyone else sees? Look at me.

I dream of you. Standing next to a car with leather seats that became too hot in the summer.  With eyes, golden as the embers in a fire With arms, hugging me tightly With lips. that kissedmy forehead when I was sick

the infinite Stars keep Us company tonight
I found your pictures on my closet floor The only way of knowing you were here before And I no longer get waves of tears anymore
I am fifteen And my hair is nice and long I still have the curls And my love is not so strong

She plunges into a world that was left unknown, a kind of darkness that swallows her whole, he tries to grab her, but she is forever gone.   She releases her grasp on what is truly real,
this void, this emptyness inside. what'd you expect of me? i'm an empty vessel with out a soul.

Beating of heart Growing ever faint Your smile still strong I try to smile back   You first came into this world So very unique I did not want to fall in love I did not want to get hurt

He walks into my room   An old friend of mine.   He holds something shiny.   "Hello Rae."    He spit my name like something dirty.

Your scent just suffocates me, bringing me down into a hole deep and dark. Why would you do this?   Your warm body was once mine, keeping me from freezing at night. Why did you leave?  
I would never refer to myself as a murderer Silence, except for the thrust of fists Nothing can calm either, not even a blissful kiss Yesterday's promises have faded to black
My heart says I'm happy, my head says I'm not.With the stress I've been given, my brain has been shot.My head and my heart speak in two different ways.One's speaking in logic, one's lost in a daze.There's memories left that you had without me.Ones
As the bright lights slowly fade And I am left out upon the stage I frantically search out there for you But it seems you have left me too Now here I stand all alone Quietly reaching for something to hold
My time is up, There is no room, The clock is stopped, The sun is dead, My time is gone, The breath has fled, There is no time,
Little Scarlet, little Scarlet, where have you been? Prancing upon my garden, did you spend the time that you were so generously given?
Little Scarlet, little Scarlet, where have you been? Prancing upon my garden, did you spend the time that you were so generously given?
If only we had just a little bit more time together, If only we had some time to be free. We wouldn't have to run away and hide and steal time together, We could've made memories, fated to be.
My childhood is gone,  Snatched away before the hands of time deemed it to be, I sit all alone in that crowd, Slumped in a corner, Blade to my wrist, Wondering why I exist as anything other than a play toy,
The Wind shares her secrets to summer's dying Leaves; with Her promise of spring they fall so hopefully. One last burst of color- they wither away; calmly assured that warmth returns someday.

Sorrow sorrow brother is deadCremated into ashes put in a jar the new child tot tot topples it overWhat to do what can be doneScramble to scoop brother back into his homeSome ashes are missedLicked up by the cat
Are you watching me from afar? Delightfully mocking my scars Cackling with your lungs half packed  With sharp words and enough smoke for stacks?   I can hear you calling Out into this space
  you have etched into my heart a walking path lined with flowers of every color;   i've walked it once or twice, myself, and i've seen bluejays and buttercups
HEY BOO!! GUESS WHAT?You’ve left me alone again, crying for what seems like forever. I’m surprised I haven’t run out of tears yet cause thats all I do all day long.Cry over you.. when you seem like you don’t even care.
  Like a tidal wave,The memories hit me. I’m drowning in,What used to be. I gasp for air,But it’s not there. I reach for you,But you’re gone too.  
The way your eyes lit upThe way your mouth smiledThe way you used to laughWhat happened to all that We were once inseparableWe were once capableNothing came in-between Now we're only once upon a time
Ive said once before                                                                                                    Distance is just slight of hand                                                                                                
When I die, my body will become the grass When I’m gone, there will be a crack on the glass My spirit will be an overwhelming mass And my footsteps will cause an earthquake in class

  I’m so in love I found you finallyYour words take me to the heavens aboveThe feelings can’t be taken too kindlySome people question if this is true love
I tend to get scared when I think about my life. What happens when it just ends? I've never really believed in a god or an after life. All of that just seems silly and make believe.
Its the quiet ones who have the most to say. Its the hidden pain that never truly goes away. Its the quiet girl who sings her song, But no one hears her til shes gone. The deepest pain is the easiest to find,
Isn’t it funny, all these different feelings that come with different days? No matter how far away you seem, No matter how much you hurt me, I will always love you. I don’t need your approval, don’t worry,
Tears burn my gentle face What hurts me the most Is knowing there's nothing I can do But look up at the midnight sky And pray you know how much I miss you My first heartbreak and you weren't there
With the world gone to the pits, I wonder how much worse it gets. Most people try to call it quits, But others use their wits.
it's not a shootout it's not a fight it's not a rape or a stabbing someone thought was out of sight that momentous night it was robbery it was a death of a childhood friend
Remember that day he left you When he left you and he flew He said we will be together forever That nothing can come between you ever
There he goes walking at his graceful pace, says hello to his friends, decides to stay and talk. Smiling and laughing there is is, but then his eyes land on me. His smile has faded away, and my heart is beginning to cry,
You departed way to soon > Now you're up there with the moon, > The clouds, and stars while they shine bright > I hold back tears all through the night, > Can't help but think of all the memories > You truly meant a lot to me, >
The day he died is when you died too; Your heart, your smile, your kids died too. When he left us, your happiness did the same; Two kids and still felt no reason to remain.
I look in the mirror, I see your face. I look in your room, I see your face. I look in my room, I see your face. I look down the hall, and I see your face.
I stand waiting, My eyes gazing across the horizon, The wind blowing my hair in the direction that you disappeared. My heart aches, The feelings within it rush up and down, Like the sea I am watching.
Another day stuck in dismay Rain clouds follow me everywhere Just another bad day they say I know they don't even care
I have a cat, and then I had three, four, five. Alonelyness. Feeling the world caving in, the door to a better life closing day by day. Alonleyness.
You saw me there yelling for help You didn't care You saw the pain You could have helped me up You knocked me down instead You kept hurting me You didn't care
One day you will realize how much you hurt us physically and mentally One day you will see the pain in our faces One day you will noticed how many lives you ruined
I wake up, 5 am as usual I get ready for the torture ahead I arrive at school I walk down the hall to my first class I sit down "GROSS!"
I miss you very much, But you’re never coming back. In this world of color, Yours is solid black. I don’t know what happened, I just know you’re not here. I remember all the good times
Ridiculed, the punch-line to every joke. Do not tell me what to do, I am not a part of you. Don't you know it hurts? The scars gather as well as the tears. Deeper they dig into my skin. Fears.
Feeling lost and so alone No one to turn to Somedays you just gotta hold your own Empty heart and broken dreams No one to turn to All alone and ripping at the seams Beaten down and can't get up
I will never understand why you died Yes I know the reason why Someone bullied you And said mean things about you But why did it affect you You are beautiful And you are smart
