DeliveryThe breeze carries memoriesWrapped in silk and tied with bowsTelling stories of somewhere else,A place nobody knows.
Pretty GirlI'm pretty, right?
No?Well, let me eat lessAnd tan more,Burn my hair to make it straightAnd spend all my money on clothes.[Am I pretty now?]
Got YouThey say there's plenty of fish in the seaAnd some sharks and some dolphins too,But as I'm drifting right alongI can't help but think of you.So let me cast my golden rodFar and deep beneath the blue,And maybe I'll catch a better fishThat'll make my dreams come true.
Give UpShe wanted a freeze button, a pause button, a wait-and-come-back-later button.But such a button did not exist, so she settled for the next best thing.A stop button, a quit button, a give up button.And when she pressed it, her life snapped off, and that was the end of the 21st Century girl.
Carnationsit smells of death and cigarettes and flowers. people are muttering apologies to a smooth wooden box. i am busy talking to air.i half expected him to be here, standing here, making people laugh instead of cry. that was his talent - laughing. mine is disappearing. no one notices as i wallflower my way to the back of the room, then slip out into an unfair, unair-conditioned reality.the sun is shining outside. i can hear it as it mocks death. cicadas chirp, people are smoking, and the world is still spinning - clearly it has yet to receive the memo i sent.he was supposed to be here. i sit on the curb, playing with ants, waiting for him to show up. he's the whole reason we're having this party (if you can even call it that). i wait for him to drive up from the carpet shop in a shiny silver car. every time a silver car rushes past on the road, i cross my fingers, hoping it'll realize it made a wrong turn and then it will come back and he'll get out and everything will be ok.e
Our Country, 'Tis of TheeThere are flags in the streets as kids laugh and play with fire. They burn their innocence away as soldiers fight back the darkness with wooden swords. Women bake cakes and count down the days until the caskets arrive. The sound of freedom pierces the air, and crosses cast shadows on the dark asphalt. You take my hand and count to three, and together we step off the edge of liberty, falling until we hit the ground hard.
LightOnce upon a timeI traveled through the tunnelInto the lightJust to see what was there.And what I foundWas a dim little lamp.
How to WriteIt's really quite simple.Just rip your heart out,Throw it on the page,And add some tears for effect.
DrowningAnd then the fish drowned.
The Words You Can never FindShe lay there all night with her headphones in her ears. The music flowed into her, making her want to move. She could feel it in her bones and her heart beat faster.The words they sang comforted her. They made her want to sing and dance and cry and scream all at the same time.The music gave her energy. It made her feel alive.The music was fast but melancholy. It matched her mood. They sang the words she could never find.
Worth a Thousand WordsShe painted allof her essays.
Let Me DieBroken heartedhere I liepush me downand watch me crybreak my wingsso I can't flyI'm here aloneSo watch me die
UntitledDear me, The girl you loved isn’t that person anymore. Is everything what you thought it would be? You need to understand that she’ll never be the same again. Are you happy with yourself? You only love her because you remember what she used to be.Forget her.
Life Is Not a FairytaleLife is not a fairytale.My prince will never come.The frogs in the pond are lifeless.The beasts are vicious and dumb.Towers are only used for working.There are no woods to hide in.I will not meet a strangerTo whom I can confide in.Magic does not exist.Animals don't talk or help.Godmothers are only for gift-giving,Not coming every time you yelp.It's too bad that only foolish thingsCan bring someone to you.Like appearance or makeup,Or perfect eyes of blue.Evil rulesAnd good fails.That's just the way it is.Or is it?
Only in the nowRunDon't look backDon't look forward eitherSilly boy,Run like a blind manUncaring of the groundDance like a white boyCareless of the tuneRunHurry or they'll get youWhose to stop you?RunLaugh so I can find youDon't look for meYou'll never see me comingDance as if I'm beside youDon't reach for meI am the airI run through your lungs when you breatheI take your laughter and spread it through the worldRunBecause I'll always be thereDon't look backDon't look forwardSilly boy,I'm only in the now.

The Fake And Me.The Fake And MeI look in the mirror and I seeA girl who looks just like meBut she smiles and I cryAnd she's the truth and I'm a lieShe's all together and I'm a messShe's happy and I'm depressedBut she's doesn't know how I feelCoz she is fake and I am real
Impasse“You can’t make me stay this time.You can’t hold on to anything.You don’t know what you want.” Now you’re biting your tongue and I’m biting my lip. We’ve already circled each other, too afraid to clash.You just let the distance grow between us. I’m too nervous to act. I’m preoccupied, thinking of excuses.I count the times I've been sorry.It's not enough.It won't ever be enough. But none of that matters now. Everything went wrong. It’s a little too late. Now there’s nothing le
Chemical Collisions.Hand me a needle to thread together my skin, because all myself is falling apart.Turn off all the lights so my eyes won't glisten when my tears begin to fall.I'm not all alone but I forgot what it's like to be with someone.Hand me a cigarette so I can choke on something else other than my own words.Where have I been? I've been lost drowning in thought and emotion.I've had time to look at the blood running from my wrists that black isn't just a shade but an emotion.I used to be called an angel, but I clipped my own wings and now I'm falling back down.The strangest thing about all this is I was here many times before.
EnchantmentWe could lie awake all nightwatching the earth move;a life socket,an enchanting stellar bruise.Exhaling solar systemswith our sighs,we could watch the cosmic thoughtsfill and disturb each others eyes,irritating us to tears.We couldwatch the world moveor move the worldfor the next few thousand years.We couldhead trip them all as we fade awayand whisper in their ears.The invisible wires spinning this spherethat our spirits are somehow tapped into,connect to the stars and collect us in jarsto contemplate why we are here.They're dark while they suck up our energy,as we're refracting light;as we look deeper into each other;as we live in black and white.
Maybe I Am GreedyI want to have answersWhen people ask why smiles don't always existWhy we are always lost within ourselvesWhy the only things that help the painAre the ones that also cause it.I want to reach the sunAnd say that big is not a synonym for badAnd tell it to keep shiningThat it keeps us all alive.I want to hug girls like meWith wordsTo wrap my paper and ink around themAnd tell them it's okayTo steal the metal from their fingersAnd kiss their foreheadsAnd dry their tearsAnd stop their bloodAnd show them they are beautiful.
The question is....The true question isNot how much beauty I haveBut how much you'll find.
WishesI wish on stop signsAnd kisses,Warm blanketsAnd coffee.[Because stars always have been a bit overrated]
