Poem: Quoted

Nothing stops my head now
Thought after thought its all rough
Like diamonds all they need is some shaping to make them shine
That’s where my mind comes in play
You can stay and watch me turn my thoughts into reality
Because that’s what I was born to do
I always thought that my life is not worth living
But I started going through it my way
Sometimes I cry sometimes I laugh
But I wont exchange it for nothing in the world
All the mistakes I made , all the bad choices I feel crawling up to this day
I would do them all over if it lead me again to you
And it wasn’t so far away when my first dream came true
And now I meet you
So life goes on and on
And we just try to figure life on our own
I live my life like I always wanted to do
And that’s by staying near you

Poem: Final Beguine

I risk everything, I whispered into the night
Challenged it for you, the darkness inside
And with it, I turned a new page in my last volume
They all called me crazy, I just ended my last chapter
And I didn’t open a new one
This is the last page in the book
Will you move, will you help me?
In the silence, I can hear you
But it’s not anything clean
It’s your voice I am sure
But what will it tell me I am not so sure
Take my pen, take my papers
And write, write my life as you please
Or just close the book and leave me here
In the end, it doesn’t matter anymore to me
Because the voice isn’t here with me
It’s not here, it’s only in my head
For you, I am probably dead.

Poem: Pillar of You

Pillar of You

I lay awake and miss you
I just want to hold and kiss you
When I think about you
My hear beat starts to go crazy
Because you are so special to me
I need you to hug me
And when I am with you I feel like the world is mine
But now I feel so alone
Are you sure you don’t have a clone
Because my sleep is taken away by the thoughts of you
And when I lay awake
I miss you
The stars turn into your face as
I look into the sky
And it almost make me cry
I wish I could sleep safe and soundly
But I miss your arms around me

Poem: Atmosphere


I gotta keep going,
Even if I can’t stay on that one road I will go on and on,
So even if I am wrong,
I have people around me that push me back there,
On my way to make my dream come true,
And that dream was dreamed since I was born,
They say only the strong survive,
Well I can’t deny I am weak without all of you,
Thats why I stay around you, that’s why I need all of you,
The world makes me feel like I am falling down,
I dont know if it is real or true,
But when I fall your hands reach to me,
And you push me forward again,
Dead hearts around me everywhere,
Its hard to see that,
But I know there are people that still care,
So I will revive those dead hearts,
And show them that there is someone that does care.
