Take me as I am Take away the pain I’ll live to feel the love To die another day Shake… Read more Ideally…
Gleaming in her eyes, and fire in her soul… brought happiness or heartache– Depending on what they stole.
With the strength of this force field they won’t feel the need to harm… The road I traveled– broken– was a lesson to keep at arms.
Does anyone know what love is? I’ve been swayed so many times in this superficial heartache– as if I’m doing time for crimes…
I left hell when I said goodbye. You looked at me and shrugged. You asked if I was sure enough– The distance as we hugged.
Been battered, bruised, and torn– Kicked while I was down. Forced to dress your way, so you could steal my crown.
This world…why? What did we do? Why must we hate? What must we prove?
The world is behind me–
I’m taken away on a silver platter.
I want the love–sick of the fear. How will I cope? How can I hear?
Excuse me. Can you tell me where you left my heart? It’s not for free.
Disease and anger flowing hot
Forgetting all that makes us free
Each scar, each bruise
Was not in vain
I won’t let the world get me down!
I’m tired of losing my crown!
Quit looking at yourself
With such disdain–
Letting others find flaws
To increase the pain.
Shine in your heart!

Gazed up and let out
A small whisper
“I love you!”
He sat there shivering
Gripping his beer
As if it would spoil
How many times must I make mistakes
Before I move on, grow, and take chances?
Love is a gift
A bitter high
A blessing and a curse
A diamond created
Who are you to disagree
With the things that make me…ME?
They said, “You don’t have talent!
You’re not good enough to try!”
They said, “You’re fat and stupid,
And you’re living a big fat lie!”
Tell me what’s it’s like to live a life in pain,
And I’ll show you how to smile while dancing in the rain.
