Measured in MomentsHappiness
Measured in moments
Life is so short
Billions of minutes
Millions of hours
So few years
So much unknown
How much time do we have?
How to use it?
What matters most?
Such a hard balance
How much to spend?
Family? Friends? Love?
Time spent in pain
Seems so endless
So much loss
Time fades away
It takes so much
Time flew by
Love was lost.
Can time be quantified?
Is it really relative?
Can it really be measured?
How much time do I have?
Becoming LessDo we live because of love, or do we live to be loved,
Because life is a broken heart.
At some point in life we shatter
And have to piece ourselves back together.
Or maybe our whole life we're broken.
Searching for our lost pieces.
Never to be complete.
Always to be missing.
Or to be grounded down
Into a million tiny pieces.
An impossible endeavor
Never to be put back together.
Which one am I?
I think not.
I'll find that piece.
I'll create something from those glass shards.
I won't bow down.
I won't be reduced.
I won't become
You Were There to Save MeYou were there to save me,
When my life came crashing through
Into the abominable abyss,
That never remits.
A smile enveloped my face,
Like the sun's rays
On a hot day
And for the first time I felt at peace.
My life became about you,
Your son, and our future,
As if my past didn't matter
And would never return again.
But it has,
And even though I hate it,
I can't stop the imagination from creating
Visions of what could have been.
You were there to save me,
When my life came crashing through,
Why can't I accept,
That I'm meant to be with you?
A DreamI dream of the sky
Flocks of bird fly
With the sun set
A hand on my chest
Amber eyes caress
I'm lost in her nest
her breath on my neck
its why she's a vex
she makes me a wreck
round luscious hips
show a few tips
then licks her lips
The Racial EquationThe Racial Equation.
We are all born from the same =.
÷ by colour, shade and tone.
X by the errors of the past.
Only +'s to the difficulty life today.
We Are The LiarsWe twist are words to talk to you,
And bend the facts to make them true.
We are the wolves, who lead the lambs.
Like gods of death who guide the dammed.
The tricksters and jesters, who kings all loved;
Until we had them lynched and clubbed.
We are the ones, who break your rules.
While dancing on your laws like fools.
Your friends and family that will always last,
It is we who wear the mask.
We lie to make our world more,
While wearing masks that you adore.
We are the ones who set up the fires
And bury the living in funeral pyres
We are the deities of deceit
And the brok
PleaseI want you to love me
A little like I love you.
Like lovers kissing
For the first time that
It sets the world on fire.
And I plan to burn down
With it because I keep failing
To realize that I'm more than
Just a body for you to touch,
A body for you to hold.
You arms around my ribs
Makes me feel so fragile,
But so safe that I could not
Possibly break while you
And I can feel you hand slipping
From mine even though I beg
You to stay because I hate
The word goodbye and how
You look as you walk away.
I want you to remember me
When you arrive.
And I want you to remember me
When you leave me behind.
Mask It With a SmileGrin.
No, not that big.
Show a few teeth...
There, that's more like it.
Go wash your face,
Your cheeks are less flushed,
So rejoin your friends.
Someone just told a joke,
Let the sparkle reach your eyes,
Now no one'll notice they're red and puffy.
"Hey, how are you?"
Tell them you're good
and re-direct the question to them.
You're too quiet,
and your mind is wandering...
Join the conversation.
Don't forget to
Don't forget to
and they wont suspect a thing...
''Lonely Road''"Lonely Road"
Again I walk down lonely road
It feels like things have changed
But unfortunately it's still the same
What you did has no forgivness
And this time I won't give in
Again I walk down lonely road
Yet it now seems more crowded
And more people seem to know you
You drag people in
Without any regret
What was once a lonely road
Is now a place for freedom
Free from you and free from everything
Lonely road is no more
....and neither are you
All the World's a Stageyou never smile for
unable to fake happiness, to
call it to the surface at will
default expression: dazed
smashed up with bits of lost
you don't participate in the act,
and if there are cameras
you haven't noticed
I envy you
the rest of us live for the audience
caught up in a frenzy of ravenous calculations
figured on an abacus of rat-raced majority
carefully guarded sentence structures
impeccably timed smiles
grimaces shoved to the background
leaving our exteriors shining brighter than
binary peopledon't perch
on virtual people.
oh so mutable,
and behind its green glow
only darkness awaits.
Lost MemoriesLost memories float like wisps of air all around me
I grasp at them vainly; try to catch them in my hands
But it is all for nought. They will stay here no more.
Desperate tears roll down my cheeks as they leave
I am falling now; falling away from all that I knew
My world, it fades, becoming bleached of its colour
I am caught and trapped now in a white walled room.
Someone, please, come free me from this desolate place
Give me back the time I was so thoughtless to waste
Let me see with new eyes the chaotic canvas of life
Let me hear the haunting songs of this sad earth again
Let me have once more all the things I gave away.

Our forever ended
Song of a Dying Bird
Have you heard how soft
the songbird sings,
and of how he sits
so delicately in solitude?
Have you heard his song
ringing so clear and true,
above the sounds of his choir
resonating across the land?
Have you heard how soft
the songbird sings,
as he waits clad in beauty
for a mate that will never come?
Hope and desperationHope and desperation walk together
be strong is to overcome the desperation
and hope until the end
Faith is believing in the unbelievable
look at the infinite
not having any guarantees, no security
give up all
and hope to find
something bigger than this gray reality
I have hope
and walk in the darkness
and desperation is the price paid by the desire for some light
UntitledPromises made and promises kept,
Tears left unwept, no time for regrets,
A smile that's made up of thousands of lies,
Graces the face of a boy in disguise.
Love that's forgotten and promises broken,
Words better left alone and unspoken,
These are the things that repeat in the ears,
Of the boy, so disguised by the grin he holds dear.
Never alone with the words in his head,
The boy sometimes wonders what its like to be dead,
But promises made and promsies kept,
Keep the tears he should weep locked away in his chest.
Through the lies of his own he sees other disguises,
And to each he attempts to bring smiles so guileless,
UntitledStep into my fairy tale, this story made of gold,
I'll drag the moon out of the sky for a lovely hand to hold.
Step into my story, transformed from mine to ours,
Walk beneath your moonlight and stroll among our stars.
This world of mine may not be real but I'll give it all to you,
My hopes, my dreams, the little things, the azure skies so blue,
Romance is a specialty, but not the fleeting kind,
So step into my storyline and set aside some time.
Forever is a fantasy found by you and I,
So walk into my wistful wish and plan to stay awhile.
UntitledSometimes it hurts and sometimes we cry,
And sometimes we wish nothing more than to die,
But when the sun rises and breaks a new day,
The warmth and the beauty melt our sorrows away.
LovePeople say they love you, then vanish in the wind,
A breeze that washes over you and crawls along your skin,
Lie and say forever, the greatest sin of all,
Foolishly believe the words they never meant and fall.
Why do people lie to us and make outlandish claims,
This silly little life of ours is nothing but a game,
Childish the way we tear apart the ones we love,
Fly away upon the breeze, my little turtledove.
We sit here with our broken wings and watch them fly away,
Breaking all the promises that they would never stray,
Then time will slowly heal the scars, our wings will finally mend,
So we can trust more liars and begin the game
BaggageI gave to you my smile, you're the reason that I stayed,
Then without the slightest warning you decided to betray,
Left me here with nothing to ride on top of him,
Was it really necessary, to drag me through your sin?
I gave to you my smile, the only thing I had,
You took it, laughed and left me with the clothes upon my back,
I know you never miss me, I know I'm not remembered,
But just once I would have liked to feel a tremmor.
A tremble in your voice that told me you still had regrets,
The same regrets that rot away within my aching chest,
But you left me here with nothing, and there you have it all,
And how am I supposed to find
ChivalryI can give you all the things of which you've always dreamed,
Smiles, kisses, oh so bliss, and feelings never seen,
We could travel 'cross the world and gaze upon the moon,
Sleep beneath the starry sky and never wake too soon.
I would grant you fairy tales if you simply wished them true,
Wake you with a kiss and fit you with a shoe,
Ride a flying carpet and climb a head of hair,
Slay a deadly dragon and meet a stony stare.
I'm the Knight you sometimes read of in the silly story books,
With the honor and the loyalty but never quite the looks,
My shining armor rusted by the lonely, passing years,
My heart battered and broken from a million un
