Beautiful Face

I’ve built a massive wall, but can’t build up my dots

I’ll break the small rules if it will show you lot

That I’m different from you and you aren’t the same as me

And the saddest thing I know is the fate of people close to me

Shadows of movements that I can’t see

Its not the end for you but it is for me 

I am a shadow among men who is dying from regret

I’m so in love with you, are you with me?

I’m lost in your space, and I’ll just take all that I can get

 

Sometimes I think and I fret

If life’s a game then let me place my bet, but if I lose what do I get?

I’d do anything if the thoughts could leave me alone

I might be a dog to you but don’t you dare throw me a bone

And I might be different from the rest , but I understand my fate

I am a shadow among men dying from regret

I’m so in love with your eyes, but show me the rest

I’m lost in the question but let me guess

 

I gaze at the starry night, twilight via dimming lights

The ambition, dead to rights

Space between the incision

Not picture perfect, just polished with precision

And as I deal with regret, I awake up from a winter sleep scared

But I know I am living

I’m right there when you’re upset

But I am a shadow among men who is dying from regret

I’m so in love with our past, but it’s filled with descent

I’m so in love with your sighs, can you hate me one more time

As I cry from regret will you appear at my steps

When I disappear will there be any regret

When I die will you forget?

THANK YOU!

Hopes, Questions and Fears

Hopes and Fears

I wander back into the universe
Scared for my future
My hands on my face
Floating above the big cities
I see the skyscrapers
As the music gets louder
I can’t even breath
I am a spectre
I am the ghost
Burning in existence
Marching through the sky
My dreams stay in the shadows

Will you lead to follow?
Will the sky open for us tonight?
Will there be light, or forever darkness?
Questions, hopes and fears
All downplayed by the thoughts that are sincere
Whether we are on top of the world
Or below the ground
We must decide what we are to do
What is our sound
The music starts to get loud
And the night sky forms within
You feel the sun on your back
Until the end
Until the End

Hey To You

Say Hey to you 
By the big red door
Dancing to your own groove 
Taking it to the dance floor

Say Hey to you 
When you make noise late at night 
My shining neighbor 
Oh memories i’ll always savor 
Because of the way i crave her 

Say Hey To you
When we are almost broken into pieces
Don’t hurt me now 
Because you know it’s true
You never believed me 
And i never understood you

Halo (Poem)

The pain never ceases to inspire
Standing alone on the corner in the rain

Crying on the corner overshadowed by pain

Ideas to erase the horizon
Distant flashing lights in the pitch black
Hold my hand and maybe we can get through
Or we could sit back and I could blindly make pretty pictures of you

See my destination in the night
Floating along the shadows
Dreams stay firmly sewn into the black and white
Will your heart stay rooted to your endeavors
Or will it just lead to another fight?

It’s the nights when I didn’t know
That inspire me today
It’s the lights that I haven’t seen
That make me see this way
It’s waking up in flames with hope in the corner of your eyes
It’s holding her and knowing that she lied
It’s a wholesome grin as the apocalypse begins
Lyrics in the smoke
Nasty jokes

Fast cars
Believe
That there will be a day when the love will outweigh the hate

One day I will be among the stars that you can debate

I’ll be waiting for fate with a gun

With the clearest view of the sun

 

Tiny (Poem)

I think you’ve got the big picture

I’ve got no real future

This is a house of cards and a world of whores

I lost myself before I could begin and its killing me 

I’ve been trying to find my way uptown but I realized Life is a sadistic game, nothing more

I became part of a statistic, as society cleaned up the mess of the boy who went ballistic

Wrap your arms around me, this is an open relationship

And we live under the sun

And below the blue moon 

But we can’t run yet

What do we live for when our lives come crumbling down

Subliminal pleasure and deafening sounds

But you’ve got the picture, I’ve got no future

When she knocked me over, I restarted my verse

 She sprouted chauvinistic 

So what do I say first? 

I love you please so adopt my emotions and help me fight the curse

 To be Alive, to Scream 

I don’t want to lose myself twice so take me to the enemy so demise can end tragically 

I lived my life, emphatically

Where you in the glee inside my hearse

Your lashing was the worse I was satisfied but focused on being better than everyone else, wanting to discover the distance between you and me

Patiently waiting for this to be a joke because my life was being lived inside you.

Isolate (Poem)

I’m detatched from mankind
There is a eclipse in the back of my mind

There is deception in the worlds design
I’m more into living
But death will come
Serenity in my self preservation
Light has touched your perfection
Cursing like anything else

Maybe you are all better then me
I’m ashamed of the things I’ve been put through

I isolate on lonely nights starting a fire on the first
Wayward distraction takes away from the magnificence of the prize

The truth, lightens the impact of your lies
And when you heard her cry what did you do?
Did you rescue the idea that one day this could be real

And one day once more, I could feel

Nightmares

 

I got up at sunrise, looking at a lonely bed thinking about the past

Been walking the streets looking for love since I was a kid

Now since I’ve been writing a book, I’ve been craving a new look

Something to burn my world or at least give me a little spark

 

Had  trouble In high school, not to much to say

Now I’m living a different a way

Same clothes but In a different fashion

I’ve been moving around the place listening to some old time beats

I’ve got love and just a little passion

And now I need some action

 

I’ve been living with a broken heart, self medicating to mend the wounds

Now it’s time to go downtown

Down Terrace

Down the street looking for a little dove to turn my world around

The message couldn’t have ever been clearer, and I’m thinking about traveling

Make a name for myself

And If you don’t want to be by my side then I could find some pretty little help

I like you girl, the way you move and dance

Springsteen vibe but we’ve got some candles ablaze

The way you move, damn it’s got me In a bit of a daze

Call it a phase

But at least it’s got a name

I’ve been feeling the same way for to damn long, so it’s time to not write a wrong but make some new rights

Checking the next flights

Family disses me but they know where to bite

Friends aren’t what they used to be

Looks like I’m going in alone

 

Feeling inspired in the streets of this town

Aspiration to flip that frown and make something oh so real

Feels like I’ve got my own theme song, moving my ass to a new feel

Thinking about all those days when I was so scared and crying

I’d be lying if right now I didn’t say that I was feeling like that man In the mirror was someone that I could get used to

I want to see Europe, looking for new vibes

Life carved me up but the rest of me is ready to start
