And as the ashes fade to gray I slowly close my eyes
Knowing I just might not wake when morning lights the skies
Because life is not worth living without you loving me
I'd rather die tonight than miss your memory

Beautiful
I tried to find a flower to match the color of your hair

Only to discover that the species wasn't there

Because despite all of the amazing things that nature can do

It's never made anything quite as beautiful as you

Am I the name on your lips, the thoughts in your brain?

When you look at me, what do you see?
Am I your girlfriend, your soul-mate, your bride to be?
Just give me a clue
What am I to you?
Am I the breath in your lungs, the blood in your veins?
Am I the name on your lips, the thoughts in your brain?
Am I the color in your cheek, the twinkle in your eye?
Am I the tingle in your fingertips, the contentment in your sigh?
Am I the girl in your dreams, the sweetness in your tears?
Am I the taste on your tongue, the music in your ears?
Am I the tremble in your knees, the tremor in your voice?
Am I the culprit of your smile,

Two contrasting powers: my head and my heart

So easy to tell their opinions apart

But there’s always one subject they concur to be true

They have no doubt that I love you

I'm just a lost soul searching for a better half
A present looking for a future better than the past
But I've been passed up so many times
Overlooked by everyone I've cared to find
And I'm starting to lose faith that there is anyone for me

A Failed Attempt at Love

I tried to light a match
But it didn't burn
It snapped in half
And now it has no chance of catching
Without singing me

Bleeding Heart
I dipped the quill into my heart

And bled into the diary

Where my feelings formed the shape of words

That read like poetry

Chapped
Try to smile through parched lips

Feel the blood trickle and the skin rip

So that every twitch of joy succeeding

Cracks old wounds, renews the bleeding

And that's just the start

Of the pain of a broken heart

Antidote
I used to think love was the symptom

And that you were the disease

I was happy to be infected

If my sickness could comfort me

But turns out you were just a vaccination

A little taste, just a little tease

Making me sick just to make me healthy

And give me an immunity

Now I pass through life unhindered

By the affliction of feelings I've come to crave

So I wound myself to invite infection

And beat my chest to feel an ache

But it does not come at my behest

No matter my appeals, no matter my pleas

It seems you've healed me of affection

And now I'm doomed to apathy

Infinite Inches
You say you want to just be friends

But you hold me like a lover

Shoulders, hips, and hands and foreheads

Pressed against each other

And yet when I lean in an inch

To close the gap between our lips

You turn your cheek and laugh it off

As if I didn’t try to break the script

And when you leave all rosy glowing

You ask me why I never smile

And I can only shake my head

And fake one through my rising bile

Sometimes I want to push you down

And pin your arms back with my own

And kiss you there with all the passion

Of being alone

But I never give in to the urge

As strongly as it beckons me

Because I want you to want it too

I want for you to need

Not just friendship

Close yet distant

Not just hugs and almost more

I want for you to want to be my girl

Eighteen Years
I’ve lived and laughed and loved

And lost

I’ve risen and fallen, faltered and crossed

The line

I’ve trusted, lied, and suffered

Broken hearts

I’ve given and taken and weathered

And fallen apart

I’ve tried and failed, been accepted

And denied

I’ve cried and cried and cried

And died inside

I’ve believed, rejected, renounced

And embraced

I’ve stumbled, stood, fled, and faced

My fears

I’ve lived and lived and lived

And more

In eighteen years

It seems like life is anything but short

The Architect
I wet the sands of time with my tears

And used our memories as buckets

To build a castle for my heart

Smile
When first I saw your siren smile

A sweet seduction of upturned lips

An entrancing beauty that so oft beguiled

To rocky shoals, doomed hearts like ships

I thought myself trapped in a dream

Though that was hardly right I knew

For even my most splendid thoughts

Could hardly craft the likes of you

Laugh
I think it must have been your laugh

That first caught me off guard

And hinted you were more than just

Another pretty girl

A lilting laugh

Sopranic tones

That danced within my head

Like beams of light

Within the dark

That I’d been living in

Enlightenment is a funny thing

Neither subtle nor outright

But relentless in the way it seems

To always set things right

Like silly thoughts of loneliness

Or thinking beauty is a long dead lie

When evidence suggests instead

That it is very much alive

Empathy
You say there's no way that I'd understand

That I can't comprehend

The loss that you feel

And the pain that you're in

That no number of miles

Walked in your shoes

Could transfuse an empathy

Or nurture a sympathy

Capable of miming the chaos

Under your skin

But I've been in the depths of your heart

A place of damp, cold, and dark

Where all but the brightest of lights

Just cast shadows that flicker and wriggle and writhe

Playing tricks on your eyes

As if there's something alive

In the desolate wasteland that's empty of life

Though you're all alone

And it felt just like home

Fidelity
No matter what life throws my way

So long as you are here to stay

I'll see it through

Because nothing short of eternity

Could ever be enough for me

In terms of you

Never Land
I sit in silent solitude

Half lit dusk painting the horizon gold

A distant glitter so far from reach

I avert my view a full half circle

Choosing the familiarity of the encroaching dark

I see my shadow stretching grotesquely

It seems disjointed from my hunched figure

My companionship abandoned even by it

I touch a thimble to my lips

Cool metal fails to substitute soft flesh

It stoically shrugs off the tears that strike its silvery surface

Never seems to be my home

Forever alone in this land without progress
