no cause did she leave un-espoused
underdogs were her stock in trade
though slender, she was a freedom fighter
she was a brave and comely maid
we got together in mozambique
in those days that was the place
tending the wounds of a beggar
hers was a fine and open face
critics might deem her reckless
I flew out knowing she would die
she stood to wave, then turn...

Missing life. Empty streets. Cold hearts.
Covering your face what you once criticised on stranger's faces.
Missing love. Empty hearts. Cold air.
Covering the flowers in your heart, the strings of my guitar.
Missing music. Empty stages. Cold rooms.
Covered ears, listening to scary news, not to music anymore.
Missing passion. Empty beds. Cold skin.
Covering all lu...

They gather on the plains of Babylon.
“It's party-time dear friends!”, the invite reads.
“Let's shake it down and cross the Rubicon.”
“A stairway up to heaven is our need.”
The plots they thicken, artful plans are honed.
They build their zigurrat to breach the blue.
Bizarre bed-fellows meet and greet, combine
In shifting shapes to overthrow the throne.
“Rise up! Throw down...

Standing over your grave
Remembering the good times that we had
Times when you were still here
But now they are just sweet memories in my head.
The pain is creeping up again
But I won't let it bring me down
I can't raise the dead
But you're still alive in my heart.
Putting roses against your name
With tears leaving my face
Couldn't see through your point of view
Too angry to see ...

I think I’m starting to wake up
My vision is clearing up but my eyes hurt
Blurs of familiar faces surround me
With joyful tears filling their eyes.
They were the tears of my friends
Friends who I thought had forgotten me
I thought I was falling on my own
But they came to catch me.
And I thought I was fighting these wars alone
But they said you're not fighting alone anymore

The angels took me away
Into the gates of Heaven
There I met a man like no other
Something was different about him.
No desire in his eyes
No anger in his voice
No lust in his heart
Could he be the one they all pray to?
Is he truly my maker
The kings of the highest skies?
He said what's your hurry
This is not your time to die.
This couldn't be real
I must be in a dream

Walking around in a strange place
Am I still alive or dead?
It is so quiet here
Alone with all these regrets.
There is so much silence around me
I can hear my own breathing
This place is becoming awful
All I can feel is the pain.
Where am I?
I don't know
Is this Hell or Heaven?
Everything is cold here in this new prison.
Cut from body and spirit
Stuck between the two realms

The clocks have hit midnight for me
I finally reached my end
I have nothing left to live for
I am closer to the edge of the cliff
And there is no rope to hold on to.
Time has run out from this soul
I've given up on living
But I think I was already gone.
Caught between the ups and downs
All my faith is fading away
Broken and alone
The loneliness comforts my pain.
Drifting away t...

I'm standing on the string you left me
Not holding on and not letting go
I don't have a strong grip with my beaten hands
So you spin me around until I lose my balance.
I'm so mesmerized by the way you make me feel
Like a diamond that caught my eye
Wrapped up in this web of yours
The more I pull, the tighter it gets.
Why couldn't you cut the rope and just let me fall?

My heart has turned to ashes
At the sight of this home.
Returning home to a homecoming?
Instead, I find a dead wasteland.
A house turned to rubble and dust
What has happened to this once great place?
This graveyard that was once called a home
Is a result of my anger.
Sitting in the ashes
Nowhere else to go
I came back far too late
The guilt starts to build up inside.
How much di...

I'll see Mother Earth again soon
Hope everything is okay
I wonder if things have changed
Or if things are still the same.
So much time has passed
Since that fateful day
But I'm still in denial.
Will you remember me
When you see my face again?
I know I have been far away
But I'll be home soon.
I finally see the blue earth
I race toward it in hyperspeed
To the point my ship begi...

What if I just ran away
Would you even care to look for me?
It’s not like it would matter anyway
It wouldn't change the feelings inside.
Sometimes the things I say
Are just to push you far away
It’s like I don't care for you
I'm just better off alone.
Running away from your love
Saying goodbye in a rusty letter
The tears from my words will explain
Because it is so hard for me t...

I can't escape this black hole
Slipping back to my old ways
Because bad habits die hard.
My insides are getting cold
So guilty and lonely
Time won't cover up
These skin deep wounds.
A constant fight for self-control
That I can never seem to win
There is no fight left in me.
I can't look at myself in the mirror
The sight is too painful to see
I did something that makes me feel d...

You look so beautiful tonight
Like a shining star wrapped in gold
Waiting in patience for the moment
When you make my wish come true.
The sun is kissing the moon tonight
A hopeless romantic with a charming heart
Only to tame a girl with a beautiful soul.
You got this seductive smile
Sending a wicked sensation down my soul
How did I ever meet a girl like you?
Stop trying to hide these ...

She said don't say a word
Keep your lips locked and closed
You don't need to say you're sorry
We'll save our apologies for the bedroom.
I thought this girl was something else
Turned out she was a complete mess
Guns and knives under her bed
What had I gotten myself into?
Leading me into a place
Where only liars go
I could taste her bad intentions
From her black hole lips.

I met a girl in a bad part of town
Who turn out to be rebel just like me
She wanted to play a game of kiss and tell
I couldn't refuse the tempting offer
No one will know about our dirty deeds
She lead me into her bedroom
Hands in between each other legs
Our clothes hitting the floors.
Messing around in the night
Lights are out in this place
Seducing whispers in my ears

Finally found my place in the sun
A place where I can be myself
Drinking a ton of alcohol
And rocking out on my guitar.
Living off of candy and beer
And smoking a lot of pot
Breaking all the stupid laws
Because being good is so boring.
Creatures of the night run this place
There is no goodness anywhere
You can live like an animal
Or die like prey.
I loving being a rebel
No one can...

Waking up from another bad dream
Or maybe I was having a flashback
Cause most of the time, I can't tell what’s real or not
And the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur.
In the mirror, I'm the one that everyone wants to be
Like the jocks on the football team
Or those famous Hollywood stars you see on T.V.
But in the real world, I'm just a boy with a broken pen.
So I get dress...

"I'm sorry" is not enough
For all the selfish things I said to you
And taking your love for granted
And always pushing you away.
The rain poured so hard that night
Police cars and flashing lights
You're at home in the clouds
Towering over my head.
I found you lying there
Your body kissing the ground
Broken and fragile
Your blood is forever stained on my hands.
You know I wasn't p...

I really think you should cherish our time
Before all the clocks finally hit midnight
Can't you see I'm still holding your hand
I wanna let go but I'm too scared to move.
Our future seems eerily blurry
A ghostly fog leading to the unknown
Raging thunderstorms covering the sky
Dozens of raindrops over our heads.
It's summer but everything is cold
I can't see you in the darkness
Wednesday 18th February 2015 4:30 am
You just might be another waste of time
Another phase that is just passing by
But there is no one else in this town
That I would rather waste my time with than you.
Look at us, we're such a mess
Just two kids stupid and fearless
Like fire and gasoline
We're ready to explode.
If I'm going nowhere
I'm going somewhere with you
And when we leave this town
We’re gonna leave it upsid...

I was sitting on the wall at Homecoming
Just counting down the time until the dance was over
Until something caught the corner of my eye.
A sweet little thing in a pretty pink dress
Her glow like the moon at night
And her hair smelled like rain on a sunny day.
Her eyes made contact with mine
I felt my stomach turn into butterflies
Is this really happening?
Still frozen from her poison...

Practice missed perfect.
Fat lady forgot to sing.
Doctor caught the flu.
Writers are rebels.
They forever cross the line.
T'hell with haikus.
This is poetry.
Not exactly an exam.
Simply a word fest.
Neatly sandwiched between five?
Great, my pen can rest.

We're the greatest gangsters
since the Wild Wild West.
For what we do
we're the very best.
We're the Flash Mob,
We're the Flash Mob.
Back in Chi Town they were run by Capone
I prefer to make a racket with my Al CaBone.
Hipsters think the Flash Mob is all about Twitter
but just like Babe Ruth I'm a heavy hitter.
This is a stick up...
