At the edge of my bed, A close friend creeps, His gibbers and gabbers fill my head, The way he speaks is quite bleak, I'd not mind it if he wasn't two years dead.

A creeping wind knows no bounds
Seeing you is agonizing. In reality
Bright, big smile.
"So what are you?" A question too familiar Years ago my mind would halt, frozen My heart would pound. "I do not know" I did not want to know. "Are you Asian?" Your ignorance now shows

I was wondering... 1. Do I really only have two followers who are interested in talking to me? 2. Do I not post enough? 3. Do I seem like a nuisance? 4. Am I one?
Do I dare call upon what may be fair? That I am only a constructive fraud. The smell of blood lingers in the night air, And I am left by love and lost to God. This I that may take blame for Banquo's death,
It's 12 o'clock, Midnight, And the world is sound asleep. Little girls dream of princesses and baby dolls While little boys dream about video games and basketball. Babies close their eyes to play with angels,

I have failed. I was not strong enough. I was supposed to break the chains, Eradicate my burden. I merely shifted the weight to make it easy to carry. The chains still wound fast around my heart.

I know what I said,
I am running, hiding from the relentless grip of REALITY But no matter what I do or where I go, it always seems to catch up with me It drugs me and runs through my veins

Never shall I forget that day which caused me to live painfully in regret. Never shall I forget the hideous guilt that built up inside me unremittingly.
You everything I hoped you would not becomeAnd nothing like you promised you would not be But now, you live within me

If only I could turn back time, I'd go back to when you were mine. If only it were that simple. Even then you didn't belong to me, But I believed in the possibility. There was a chance,

Money or Starve by Andrea Victoria
I live with Regret I breathe her I touch her I feed her She haunts me every night I wake up wanting to die And fall back asleep Into that good night
A day recedes, I'll chase down one more nightA lamed and hobbling Spring tries to outrun the tideof all the misspent monthsand all this wasted time

Why must you make me suffer? One error and I am faulty? Why do you uproot my regret and prevent me from my blossom? Even the most delicate rose has its thorns, and you still
I’m not a machine. I make mistakes. Hell, even a computer makes mistakes. But unlike their errors, I don’t need you to fix mine. I am my own programmer. Making the necessary
I lost that timeworn, white gold wedding band, the one that represented a broken purity that we as humans have destroyed. I lost my stern father’s posh shutter lens FujiFilm and for a while we lost track of time between then and now.
Wait. You have a problem with the way I dress? The way I pronounce my words or treat other women with respect?
It feels like this And It feels like that
IT’S A girlThe three deadliest words in the world.So many keep disappearing just because of the flip of the coin.

I stood there, frozen. Time seem to stand still, As I stood there, looking down at you. Nothing in my life ever prepared me for this. I distinctly remember the sound, The sound of the body bag being unzipped.
I remember the day, Back when it was all games, Back when nothing was gray And all you had to learn were names. The years went by, The classes got harder.

He’s never around for long But always there when needed. Whistling the same song He triumphs, forever undefeated. A heavy soul Dressed in all black. Always wearing the same leather jacket,
A hero in his prime But he was built to high this time That should have been the sign That he would fall A wife and kids he had All they needed was a dad But left alone and sad
Looking up into the sky into the endless blue seeing all the clouds passing by the green balloon bright and new The little girl was shining with glee this was pur happiness

The dependency comes with a tendency for me to come back to you,

Bursting with opportunity, The world is but a door Hiding potential, sheltering hope At the mercy of those within Some individuals prevail The ones harboring power Opening doors
A life lived without regret, Is a life not lived at all. To live is to lose things, Never to have lost, Well Is never to have really lived. The soul of a man is not hindered by regret,

Yesterday is gone my dear friend, it has already come to an end. With all its blunders and its tears, follies,defeats and other fears. The endless tears you may have wept,
When I look around I see conformity. We try to be the same to maintain a sense of normalcy but it just constricts our voices. The world is closing in around us,

The reason is simple. It’s not black and white. My pen is drawn to paper with ease For once, my mind is free. Words flow to and fro. I write for emotion. My feelings run with every thought.
Words that are for the wisdom we choose to seek Predators circle its prey until its last breath Dictators watch as it its it solemn flesh Stuck in one’s mind of the already decided
So many struggle to find reason for their lives So many struggle to go on So many struggle Yet so many miss on the simplest joys in life So many regret their past sins So many live in their failures
The tears were streaming down my face, happy thoughts I could not retrace. I stare up at my computer screen, social media can be so mean. I type my goodbyes

Every day I wonder what I should say. When I see him, my hands start to tremble. His eyes hypnotize me and sweep me away. Everything I say comes out in a mumble. I dream we will run away from this town,
A beast. I was strong, fast, unbeatable, Red eyes, hot breath, Power flowing like blood. You were my pet, Your only purpose was to make me Happy. And when you failed
When the wind blew through the September skyline, With the grass seemingly floating- soft and golden- I could have sworn that I saw you. Wonderful you, sitting underneath the willow Your hands wide open.
Sometimes it hurts when I think aboutThe fact that you, I am withoutI'll not be the one that's by your sideThat simple grace I've been denied
I seem cursed to love what I can't ever haveBut I could have had, and that's the rubI ran away when it looked like loveAnd I see my folly when I look back

I love you That's what you told me That's what I told you At one point Our hearts joined And for that moment time stayed still And even the little bee by the white rose Felt the so called love
Hear I stand a soldier haunted by what I've done. My ears still ring with their screams. My eyes still burn burn with their faces. I remember whispering to each pair of eyes
Like the rose who's petals have fallen to earth Like a single snowflake melting alone Like a whispering breeze with a lonely fall-leaf Like an empty laugh lacking of mirth
Life is dictated in Time's court So fuck around all you want Time will come and strip your selfishly selfless conceited joys Gavel slammed to a sentence of eternal damnation You to an eternity of never ending
Abort that little seed That didn’t even live its life. Mama and daddy what is was waiting upon. Little seed that would have been running around in the backyard,
The beauty about string theory, the endless loop of universes, the theory of endless possibilities, is that somewhere, in the vast void of space everthing'll be okay We'd be together We'd be happy You'd know how i feel
While walking down the street one day I heard a small boy cry Why hath this life have no meaning And why do people die I thought to myself "oh small boy everyone asks someime"

Birch, Your bark once white Is now black From all the things we can’t take back. You’ve shivered in the wind But now you burn because we’ve sinned Your shade may be no longer,
3:57 odd time to be a- wake. I lay slowly, adrifting away- awake. the Insomniac beat... yes it benches and bangs, an anvil god's trinkets and toys bring pain-
Take a bite of the poison It’s the fate that you’ve chosen Eat it slow, swallow fast Making each sensation last Bittersweet tastes of heaven and hell Take more; go on, you might as well
Time flies way too fast There is no reverse Youth is fleeting My childhood is in pieces Is this what reincarnation is for? Re-do Do over Can I take everything I have done back?
when we're in the mood when we're in this place when the temperature rises and our hearts start to race and in between heavy breathing accompanied by low moans
The only thing I'm good at is being banged in bed sheets over the head Bodies touch emotions would rush but there's none No passion no good reason or ration Just for money to blow, a high rate hoe
Bright hues of orange of golden dandelion of bursting sunrises saturation of all colors saturation of all feelings an explosive concentration of stifling sticky crippling heat

Nothing ever stops moving-- Not when you want it to, or need. No light dims out on Broadway; No moment of silence for them. If they go, will they be Remembered as they are Or as they used to be?
Wasting away. Lost. Lonely. I run at any sign of someone trying to talk me out of my nonsense. I'm so deep within the black that the white seems hideous. Threatening.
You said it would only be a few months. Months turned to years and years turned to never. Time is merely vapor and we were merely smoke.
The rain, it is my comfort, when I sit, alone, in darkness, my thoughts completely consumed by you.
I find it much more difficult to write To tap tap tap into my own mind To indulge my words and to delight In the soft and sweet poetic kind A man I knew, or did one time
Regret I wish I could say At the closing of Life I wish I could say I gave it my all. I wish I could say I fought the enemy That I witnessed its red eyes Dilate and close.
I wanted you to know that I think of you when I carve into my flesh. I wanted you to know that come up with plans to kill you. I wanted you to know that you are a cold, selfish monster.
The storm in the distance begins to stir, And here I stand with the ice beneath my feet. The gusting wind is cold, harsh, and bitter, The snowdrifts are building around the lake,

He was just a little kid blonde hair, blue eyes playing in the back of the church like usual waiting for mom to say it’s time to go. He doesn’t notice the girl with her short shorts and blue shirt
Mad at myself For letting it end Countless months, hours, and days Spent with my thoughts in a never ending haze
Can't help to not to cease to forget you Can't help to not to try to let go Deep Inside, full of feelings oh so very low Betrayal, selfishness, and fear once part of my past Situations you never deserved
Afraid it will come back Up like a shadow Up like his smoke Rolling in with the tide Even when I hide I'm afraid it will find me I'm afraid I'm still to week to fight Because I remember how
Inside me there's a life I may not give the chance To live nor To be a kid Nor To grow big I feel you baby Mommy is here Yet please my child Understand This world is evil
Life, So meaningless and rich, It withers like a dying flower And yields its beauty with, Yet richer than the richest golds And finer than the finest jewels,

It’s about time us who have yearn will be honor in our means. It’s about time, the celebration will meet the accomplishments which come to light in making history.
EVERYDAY I LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND HATE WHAT I SEE WHO I REALLY AM IS LOST SOMEWHERE IN ME. I’VE MADE MISTAKES WHEN I DIDN’T LISTEN TO MY HEART NOW EVERYTHING IMPORTANT HAS QUICKLY FALLEN APART.
