I reach out to the world… But the world rejects me… Doesn’t want to even acknowledge the person who is me. Many walk on by… Right through the soul laying before them… No one hears me as I cry out in pain. Just another causality of society… I am riddled with the bullets of despair… Blanketed with the stink of failure… And no one seems to care. I’m just a faceless...

Her face is weathered with age, Her body now old and frayed, Most just disregard he as worn out and feeble, Not of her right mind, But if you look beyond the wrinkles, Look past the graying hair, Look past the absent smile she always seems to wear. You’ll see her true spirit, You’ll see there’s more than the surface shows, You’ll see her eyes tell the story of...

Living in glass house, My pain on display for the world to see Nothing to sooth the heartache that lives within me. I lie to myself, Make excuses for those who’s joy is tormenting me, Even when they continue to step on me. This house is of my own making, Built on what I have allowed to be, As I continue to make bad choices that at the time seem sound to me. Will...

I’ve given so much to you… Tried in everyway to show you how much I care… Many lonely nights I waited with the hopes you might have some time to spare… I put my heart on the line… Even though you never asked me to. I let down the walls… I dared to let you in… But in return you gave me nothing more than the feeling of pain. I finally decided it’s over… No longer...

I lay my head down as night falls, He welcomes as always to his side. His caresses scream “ I knew you’d be back”, I can almost hear the sound of his smile. In the shadows he can’t see the tears in my eyes, I doubt he can even hear the shattering of my heart, As the slivers scatter in my chest. Why can’t I stay away? Why do I allow to be inflicted with so much...

I know you have been watching me nurse this whiskey for a while now, I know you have see the stray tear slip down my cheek, I’m sure you are thinking I’m easy pickings, That with my broken heart in tote I’m easy pickings for the night. That I’d fall for your pretty boy face as I listen to your sweet talking lies, It’s only fair that I warn you, It’s only fair...

It sits in front of me mocking, Daring me to mare it’s untouched surface, Longing to hold all my great words, To be the first to absorb all that I dream. All the secrets deep within my soul, Thoughts that most wouldn’t dare want to know. A blank piece of paper, My best friend, My enemy, Always stable, Always the center of my madness, Always faithful as it is...
