falling in this empty solitude
This cradle of lies I call life
is sucking the innocence out of me
I once lived in a fantasy
but the blindfold has been lifted
heavenly bliss is no longer
Ignorance could have saved me
from this tormented life.
Fighting To rewind to my blinded days
When the progenitor fed me sweet, sweet
fabrications of life. As a child I swallowed
their lies as if they were candy.
To hide the truths of life from the child.
To protect the precious innocence.
To have an existence free of suffering.
The innocent lived in gated grounds.
The progenitor locked the gates and hid the keys.
The innocent lived everyday with a blinded view on life.
The progenitor shaped life into a fairy tale for their innocent.
The innocent longed to live in the world beyond the gates.
The progenitor claimed that their innocent was not yet ready.
The innocent came across the key to gates one day.
The foolish innocent unlocked the g
My Sanctuary-Dreams of FreedomI Close my eyes, as tears roll down my cheeks.
Flowing tears leads the way to dreams.
In my sleep.
In my dreams.
In my sanctuary...
Your voice can no longer reach me.
For you cannot taint my dreams.
My dreams protect my sanity,
what is left of me.
you may have ripped away my freedom,
but in my dreams I can fly...
and one day, i will fly so high..
I will be too far away for anyone to reach me.
I will take back my wings...
ending the the cycle of self destruct.
One: A pieceSouls
One needing strength,
other needing a vessel.
One body, two souls.
Both needing something
in return. This is the way it had to
be, if they value their lives.

Will: another pieceWill
I carried her in my arms as she slept.
She was so silent.
I could feel the warmth of her body warming mine.
As I walked I took a look down at her.
She was wrapped in beauty.
Inside and out.
She opened her eyes partially.
Looked at me, smiled and whispered thank you.

Forebidden: Keep livingForebidden
I was born to a family with no social status.
He was born as an heir to the thorne.
Yet, fate has brought us together.
Fate has bound us.
Fate has me falling for his sweet, sweet love.
He loves me with a passion.
Though his family hates me with burning rage.
His family forebids him to see me.
For they will kill me for loving him.
They said forget him.
Cause no one can replace his love
nothing in this world.
He will not see me.
For he fears for my life.
I am slowly fading without him.
I find a note in his handwriting reading,
I love you so I will set you free from this
heavy burden on your shoulders. I love you so be happy
that is all I wish for you. Live your life to the fullest. I will always and foverver
love you for an eternity. Never think other wise. I fear for your life and I will not not be reason for that being taken away from you, it is too precious. So love and never stop. Live the life I have given back to you.
Part of my story: WillAs she walks
Down the moon lit
Path, she notices
her soul charm starting
to glow brightly.
She can feel his presence.
Her soul is calling out for him.
Their souls are intertwined
even worlds away.
The soul charm represents
her soul glowing brightly
more than ever.
She wants his arms around her
So her heart will be at peace

Little Sister by JewelHey little sister I heard you went to Mr. So and So, knocking on his door
again last night, said you needed it bad-
you know that ain't right
'Cause so many times you've come to me crying
trying to stop. you said it hurts so bad
But please don't let you
go back for more
My little sister is a Zombie in a body
with no soul in a role she has learned to play
in a world today where nothing else matters
but it matters, we gotta start feeding our souls
Not our addiction or afflictions of pain
to avoid the same questions we must
ask ourselves to get any answers
We gotta start feeding our souls
have been lost to the millions with lots
who feed on addiction selling pills and what's hot
I wish I could save her from all their delusions
all the confusion
of of a nation that starves for salvation
but clothing is the closest to approximation
to God and He only knows that drugs
are all we know of love
Every day we starve while we eat white bread
and beer instead of a hadshake or hug
We spill the pills
EndlessImagination has no
Imagination is endless
The possiblities are endless
So use your imagination to your fullest.

What Love IsI was just a lonely girl
Only a few months past sixteen
But still naïve
Wishing for the kind of romance
You see in the movies.
He was a lost soul I thought I could save
He made me feel special
For the first time in my life
He needed me
I never realized what a burden that could be
And so I told him
'I don't know what love is
But I know what it's not.
It's not living life on a leash
Or living life to please.
I'm no one's property
I belong only to me
Love is supposed to build you up
Not tear you down
I may not know what love is
But I know it's not you and me
That boy's ways left me broken inside
I fell into the arms of a friend
Started to feel hope again
It felt so good to feel worthwhile
Oh, I fell hard and fast
And so it didn't last
I had seen the light of good in him
No matter how cold he might be now
I couldn't get it go
I was lost in heartbreak
Until I could see
I don't know what love is
But I know what it's not
It's not letting someone walk all over you
Making excuses bec
People screaming, people dying.
People singing, people lying.
It's not enough.
But life, it's tough.
The world's in shambles.
But we're not bothered.
The world's disaster,
Not our problem.
We see our faults,
Acknowledge our demons.
And still we do nothing,
Politics and religion
Hypocrites and Conformists,
We all are.
Denial is a screen
We hide behind it everyday
But the screen is glass
It's clear, with cracks.
We really do
We just don't try,

A titanic kind of love.He could pick you apart like your favourite pastry; find every glob and sugared jewel, those cinnamon swirls you buried from view. His fingers peeled you down from crown to feet and he did it so tenderly you wouldn't even notice until you slipped on your own skin, amazed that you'd been naked in his presence. He knew you never watched the ground as you walked, eyes always on the sky and possibilities above. It was a hushed undressing, a stripping of water-based paints you thought were permanent. A beige canvas dripping wet, colours pooling on the floor, you'd shades trickling from your eyes and he told you he thought blank pages were beautiful because they were splattered with promise.
You're drawing sunsets, pressing pastel pigments with your thumbs to create fish scaled leaves and haze. He could always build you up with everything you already owned, and he would stare up at you in adoration of the sincerest kind. He was selfless in loving you, showed you all his loose ends that he wr

The Truth to LifeDo we have a purpose, is a question one will often ask
Is there a higher power out there, some greater task
The truth will hurt many, not only a few
People have a hard time dealing with that which is true
There is nothing greater that watches your back
Deal with it, stop crying and build your own stack
You are responsible for the life that you lead
It is not someone else's fault when you don't get what you need
If one wants the stars, they must be grabbed by one's own hand
Nothing in life is freely given there is no promised land
So the question remains, why are we here
For those without faith, the answer is painfully clear
We live only for today and if we are lucky the morrow
To us there is no afterlife, but that brings us no sorrow
Self improvement is our main goal and it starts in the here and now
We refuse to be filled with illusions of grandeur and get fat off them like a cow
The best of us seek improvement in every area we can
Without the proper balance of self there can be no co
-Lock and Key-My heart is heavy with unwept tears
My mind is plagued by foolish fears
I don't know where to turn
I'm looking for a safe place to run
but there's nowhere in sight
The world is spinning around me
Everything is a blur
Is this what I get for trusting again?
I'll keep my heart under lock and key
They'll never know what they cannot see
Even as I fall apart again
So I'll keep my heart under lock and key
Never again feeling this pain that fills me
My heart is safest when it belongs to only me
Oh-oh, under lock and key
Like a message in a bottle
Lost on the seas
Forgotten and unseen
Living life in a waking dream
Unable to bear such an empty reality
But life loses meaning as you cling to fantasy
Disconnected from the world around you
I've kept my heart under lock and key
They don't know what they cannot see
Even when I fell apart again
Yeah, I've kept my heart under lock and key
Been numb for far too long
I want to feel something inside
I need to feel alive
Oh, been under lock and
Do you care if i die?If I told you I was down,
Would you try to lift me up?
If I told you I was sad,
Would you try to make me happy?
If I told you I was depressed,
would you try to help me?
If I told you I wanted to die,
would you try to talk me out of it?
If I told you I was contemplating suicide,
Would you have serious concern for my health?
If I told you I had the who suicide note, written out
would you find it and show it to someone?
If I threatened to kill myself,
Would you try your hardest to keep me alive?
If I told you that I was close to the edge,
Would you try to hold me back?
If you really cared,
You would help me,
If you wanted to keep me alive,
you will tell me…
don't take advantage of me, you never know if it's my last day…

You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Un roti de Cupidon"Patron.. je suis pas sûr que ça soit une si bonne idée..."
Un bruissement d'ailes presque froufroutant sur sa gauche le fit se retourner d'un bond, mais il ne put percevoir qu'un bref mouvement du coin de l'oeil. Ils étaient rapides, bien trop rapides. Jamais le vieux ne réussirait. De nouveau ce bruit soyeux, semblable à des ailes de tourterelles, mais bien plus proche. Dans son esprit il pouvait les voir, tournant au dessus de sa tête comme autant de vautours prêts à la curée.
Le bruit assourdi des détonations résonna et tout autour d'Emmanuel une pluie de plumes commença à virevolter tandis que cinq bruits sourds accompagnaient la chute d'autant de corps autour de lui.
"Ramasse les, petit. On a encore du boulot."
Avec une grimace mi admirative, mi dégoûtée, le jeune homme se mit au travail, enfilant des lourds gants de cuir pour se protéger. Son sup
