BlindedBlinded by your light, I shield my eyes
Your inner glow so immense
I can no longer look at you
How lovely you are now
You must be very happy
What a price you must have paid
To keep that sweet smile from fading
But I cannot share your joy
Though I would have done so any other time but now
I see you and I cannot bear it
You've become something you are not suppose to be
That radiance flowing from every fiber of you
It is the illusion that shatters my reality
You and your wanton immorality
I look at you only to turn away
How could you have been so foolish?
Now you look at me with that smile of yours
Carefree and aloof, you watch me from where you stand
And you laugh for you know that I can't look back
You've become too selfish
Enamored by your own beauty
The light you now bear replaces your foresaken soul
And you're clueless to my agony
How I wish I could save you from yourself
But alas, you no longer heed my words
I am nothing more than a distant memory
Now I carry the burden of knowing y
Eyes Wide OpenMy eyes hurt...
Must be because I've kept them open for so long
I'm seeing things I shouldn't see
And what bothers me is
I don't know if I understand
Can't comprehend what's right in front of me
My vision's going blurry again...
What am I looking at now?
If I could only keep my eyes closed shut
I wouldn't have to worry about anything
I wouldn't have to see all the madness going on
Times like these, I wish was blind
But I know I don't really mean it
I need my eyes too much
They show me what's really there
I take in everything and nothing all at the same time
And I see them all at once
It makes my head hurt sometimes...
Life is a Soap OperaChemistry class was boring as usual. I think I went on auto-pilot during the on-the-spot recitation. I guess I did okay. The professor was smiling and thanked me for my answer. So I go back to mindlessly doodling on my notebook. Behind me, I could hear the class bitches giggling about their latest flings. In front was the class jock checking himself in the mirror for the 25th time this hour. To my right was Chloe, texting discreetly to the point of making it a refined art. To my left was Klyde, writing notes diligently. Well at least there's one guy paying attention. I sighed and continued on the professor's caricature for the upper left corner of my notebook.
The bell finally rang. Chloe dashed off to her class in the other building. I placidly collected my things and put them in my bag. I had a 30 minute break anyway. It seems that everyone else has vacated the classroom. Except for Klyde. He just sat there, staring at his open notebook.
"Hey," I lightly punched him in the arm. "What
It's all in my head.
You're nothing to me.
You don't own me.
I wish you'd go away.
I wish you'd disappear.
I wish I never met you.
I wish you never existed.
Maybe you never did.
If only I could convince myself
That you mean nothing at all...
You're just a figment
Of my twisted imagination.
You don't exist for me.
You are nothing!
Take A Hint"I love you," he said.
I rolled my eyes.
"I love you," he said again.
"I mean it," he said.
I stared in disbelief.
"You're breaking my heart," he said.
I broke his nose.
"That hurt," he whined.
"Tough luck," I replied.
"You mean a lot to me," he said.
This is making me sick.
"You love me too, right?" he asked.
"Can't you take a hint?!" I yelled.
"So is that a yes?" he said hopefully.
This is annoying the heck out of me.
"Goodbye," I turned around.
"Don't go," he said.
I walked away.
"I'll follow you," he said.
"I'll kill you," I answered.
The Folly of Being in a HurryWhen you're in a hurry, you get desperate
When you're desperate, it doesn't matter how you get there
What matters is that you get there
And that you get there on time
Or else all your worrying and hurrying
Will all be in vain
And you'll just hate yourself for being so stupid
That you got so desperate over nothing
HelloHello, it's good to see you again
Time has passed us by...
And look how much we've grown!
I haven't heard from you since last we met
You've been too far to reach.
For a while I thought we'd never meet again
But see how we run into each other...
How have you been, my friend?
Tell me of your hopes and dreams,
Are they still the same as before?
Have you found new places to explore?
I've gone around the world in my mind
I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
Surely you have something new to tell
Now that both of us are on our own
No longer bound by schoolyard rules.
You still look the same, I see
And from your look I can tell
You're thinking the same about me...
Make me laugh like before
Let's talk of wine, of things being fine
Relive our adventures of old
And the merry company we once relished in...
Tell me about the future you wish to make,
I'll tell you the life I didn't take
And we'll laugh at our absurdities
And scoff at our whimsicalities
And not think of when to say goodbye...
ChocolateListening to the music in my head
Remembering the songs of my life
Ain't it funny how it comes back to memory
You thought you've already forgotten
But it stays with you no matter what
I'm awake eating a chocolate bar
It melts in my hand as I think
How the bittersweet taste tingles in my mouth
Like a memory from long ago
Addictive, this feeling of wanting to remember
Consuming, this feeling of regret
As I eat chocolate at midnight
Sweet as a kiss, always wanting more
Never being satisfied with what you have
I wish I knew when to stop
But knowing me, I never will
Because chocolate stimulates my senses
It makes me feel alive, that delicious flavor
Some things never change
Just like when I was a kid
Always getting more than my share
I'm selfish and greedy, I want you all for myself
But I'm no longer a child
And like when I finish this chocolate in my hand
I discard the wrapper and think no more of you
Just have to wait for the next time
When I have something new to hold on to
Broken GlassDance on the broken glass
In the middle of the storm in your mind
Let your feet brush against the shards
Of your broken dreams and forgotten promises
Dance on the broken glass
Like you've never danced before
Let the raindrop tears fall freely
Nobody would care anyway
Nobody cares... nobody cares...
Rainbows fade as colors fade
It's all an illusion, it's all in your head
And you wish you could take back what you said
He's gone and left you all alone
Angry with how you've been treated
Like the broken mirror in your hand
Your face all fragmented in shades of bloody red
Whipping up the winds of hate
In that whirlwind of emotional rage
He's gone and you're dying
You can feel your life being drained away
And in the shattered glass you see
Your face lookin back with wounded eyes
Oh, poor wounded soul within
Crying like your heart was breaking
Just like the shards you dance upon
So dance like there's no tomorrow
Let the rain wash away your pain
Your dreams will never be realized
Your dreams li
