Human Puppet.You wouldn't let me say the words I needed to.I couldn't cut the strings my fingers held.I watched myself be thrown around and toyed with.And realized my joints weren't built too well.You may make me dance and laugh.But, you couldn't hear the screams of horror inside.Inside my hollow lungs.You can silence me with truth.But, every word you mutter is fake.Fake eyes can tell.You can't decieve me,With your bitter lies.I am not a toy.You can't consume me with your foolish desires.Controlled me with the fact I wasn't strong enough.Discouraged me with insults and repairs.Suspended me over all the filthy trash.And challenged me with open fire dares.You may throw me to the wall.But, you can't break more than the last time.You get used to it all.You can scream all you like.But, you really shouldn't expect an answer.Or was that what you wanted.Don't try to use me.With broken strings.You can't confuse me.I'm not your doll, don't you dare fool with me.And you can't break
Stars In the Night.Demure in the light of day.You seem to hide away,But you cannot deceive me.Because we are meant to be.Practically betrothed, you and I,I love your lilt in my skies,The opulent way that we conflate.This eloquent love affair we have made.When you and I become one,We are the envy of everyone.A ephemeral glory that we possess.Soon enough, we must regress.The setting sun is our messenger.Now we can go back to how we were.Dancing together, you and I.Your brightened smile in my dark skies.This beautiful dalliance of ours,I become so greatly empowered.So dull I would be without you.This evanescent rendezvous.But then you and I are gone away.Once the rising sun indicates the day.Apart, gone, though my deep affection remains.Our fleeting love disappears as quick as it came.
The Tale of a Book.There is always a last page,And the ink must run out.The cover will age,And you'll always have doubts.Never written in stone,Memories will not die.The pain is not my own,And always relive a lie.Lonely, and discarded right from the very start.The moment you entered Life, you were meant to steal my heart.I wasn't told you'd leave me at the beginning of the book.Though that was the catch, you had ended your part.And the pages turn and turn, with each waking minute.The never ending story, even has its ending soon.And when our stories someday cannot continue,Will you meet me back at the first chapter again?We will all be reborn,Unlimited I am.Old pages are torn,Control lightning? I can.Never bound by the earth,I am independent and free.The page is what it's worth.Now will you just leave me be.Easily bruised, with paper skin, I'm very fragile.But I contain material that turns out to be very vile.Surprises everywhere, you don't know what happens next.Hints hidden in
Soldiers of Love.I'm a soldier, here I stand.In this barren, blood-stained land.A place where love keeps eluding my grasp.In this world, life's not free.When I die remains a mystery.I must put in all I am, just to live.I will fight to find you someday.Forward I'll go, hoping someday is today.If we believe in God, obediently,May he grant us his mercy.If you want to be free,Come with me.We will run away tonight.Set your fears,Up in flames.Let us make our grand escape.Trust in me.Follow me.Time to go for love this time.Your heart is mine.I'm a soldier, here to stay.Running through my hell today.Witnessing too much pain to register at once.Risked my life as my last bet.But I refuse to die just yet.I must keep going if I am to find you.Desperate and broken I must be,To fight for someone I've yet to see.Though I need something to believe in.And my heart skips every other beat.I need a savior to find me now.Time to fly far away,Like an angel with newborn wings.So on your feet.
Death's Christmas.I made a big mistake as I slipped into a deep slumber.What was probably the biggest of all my possible blunders.I had forgotten to pray to the Lord, He who saved me with his grace.I closed my eyes for a moment, and Death screamed in my face!"You'll never wake again! Ha, you'll never wake again!The moment you lost sight of the Lord, is when you revealed your end!"He grinned sharp-toothily at me, as he wielded a bloody knife.When I disregarded a simple prayer, it cost me my life!I tried to run, I tried to scream,But all my sins, I could not redeem.If only I had changed my ways, if only I was able to see,That the greatest of man's fears would be chasing after me.I pleaded to him, I promised I would repent,He shook his head and said my destiny was set.He took a look at me, dirty fingernail against my pointed chin,Smiled evilly and said, "Let the torment begin".I closed my eyes in anticipation of the first strike,And then quietly he asked me, "How come you lost your sight?"
Missing Girl.Did you see a girl around here?I looked in the mirror after I woke up, but she wasn't there.Looks like she went missing again today.I walked around town for a little while.I thought I heard her voice.However, no one else seemed to hear it."Excuse me, young man""There he is again.""He's working again, I see."I was confused.Why were they speaking to me that way?They smiled like they knew what they were talking about.The same night, I looked in the mirror again.There she was.The whole time, she was there.Why could no one else see her?
Guilt.Your love has been eating away at me.The more you give into me,The more the guilt singes me.Bring my secrets to the devil,Down past the grave,I could have kept them forever.As long as you loved me, right?I would have waited eternity,But you betrayed me and my loyalty.You threw our memories away,Left it all behind you,I was always there for you.It wasn't enough,It would never suffice,Even though that love wasn't a lie.You'd take me back when you were ready,But I was ready long before you.Still, I never picked up that phone again.I gave you a single chance,Hoping you'd give me another chance.The rejection came at last.It didn't take a million times to know,Everything was over,I walked away and never came back.
Loneliness.You linger on like a restless spirit,and spew insults and hopelessness for everyone to hear it.During the day, you do nothing to sway me.Though as the night comes, there's only doubt and misery.You chain me up like a prisoner,and you leave all good memories in a blur.I can yell and cry, but it falls on deaf ears.You engulf me in all my petty fears.Your heart is an empty, black void.In the morning, all you leave me is paranoid.
