They say eyes are the windows to the soul, but all your eyes do when you look at me is take control, I am no noble man and could never be a saint – all I've got is this pen and on this paper it’s my soul I paint.
I am a slave to the heart, wrapped up in mental chains – I let down my guard as your memory danced upon my brains. Staring at this blank wall as the paint starts to peel – these words could never really express how I feel.
Open my minds closet and let all my skeletons go, I need to be free from these secrets and let the world know. I once had a heart until I gave it to this woman, who then ripped it apart and had me doubting that I am human.
But this world is so cruel for a man like me, a man with a heart as sweet as candy. Even though I have been through love’s wrath, I would never divert and roam on hate’s path.
Knock on my door and look through my window, her love was more poisonous than a black widow. I swear that her heart bleeds ivory black, despite all this pain I always come back.

The inspiration behind this piece is a relationship I was once involved in which possessed a lot of unrequited love and emotional manipulation.
Like a shadow,
I shall follow you,
I shall move like the silent wind,
And touch you in my mind.
Like Majnun I shall love you,
Like Paris I shall feel you,
I shall cross every limit,
Like Achilles and reach the summit.
As for water waits the seashore,
I shall wait for you evermore,
Like Romeo I shall visit you stealthily,
To spend time with you, my angel lovely!
Like the moon I shall see you,
Cutting the clouds through,
Like the rain,
I shall wash away all your pain.
I shall act like a loyal friend,
And never pretend,
I shall be poignant like the setting sun,
Once afar you will be, my loved one.

Oh Let The Sky Hit The Fire In The Moonlight
I'm On The Deep Level With Love
But I Can't Let You Off The Chase
Cause I'm In A Race To The Sky
Trying To Make Peace Here And All
I'm Sorry If I'm A Disgrace
But Since I Was Forgiven
I Can't Seem To Forget
How You Saved Me
How It Seemed To Be
Oh How It Used To Be
With One Cross And Three Nails
Oh How Was I Was Forgiven
The Scars The Used Te Cut Me
The Pain That Used To Drown Me
The Strain That Used To Ache Me
I Used To Think How You Cared About Me
Oh How You Used Words To Control Me
Because Love Broke My Heart
It Broke It Wide Open
It Broke My Feelings
Torn My Emotions To Pieces
But When I Feel Defeated
And When I Hear You Speak
I Feel Enlightened
It Gives Me Peace
It Soothes My Soul
Provides Me Shelter
Keeps Me Calm
Because I Know Who Cares About Me
I Know Who Loves Me Unconditionally
No Matter What I've Done
No Matter How Bad I've Been
The Things I've Done
The Word's I've Said
Thank Goodness I'm Forgiven
Some Days Life Feels Just Perfect
Other Days It Feels It Ain't Working
When My Faith Is Getting Weak
And I'm Falling On My Knees
But Here I Am, Once Again
Cause I Know It's Going To Be Alright
It's Going To Be Bright Again
One More Time I Feel The Pain Running Up
But Because I Know God Is On My Side
All I Gotta Do Is Shake It Off
Because I Know, I Just Know
That God Is Always With Me
When The Darkest Hours Come Before Me
When The Sky Turns Darker Than Black
I Know It Kinda Scares Me
And I Know It'll Follow Me
I'm At War With The World
Cause They're Trying To Pull Me Into The Dark
Trying To Crush Me Beneath The Rock
But All I Gotta Do
All I Know I Need To Do
Is Drop On My Knees And Pray
Some Say That Being On Your Knees Is Weak
Some Say That Its The Most Vulnerable Position
But I Say Its Knowing Who Holds The Future
Being So Bold In Character
What Makes Him Trust In This Person
What Makes Him Have Courage In This
I Don't Know What I Can Tell You
Maybe Its The Things You Experience
The Pain And Sorrow You Feel Growing Up
The Hurt And Stress That Kick You To The Ground
But All I Gotta Do Is Tell You To Not Give Up
Don't Give In To What They Say
Sure You May Be Different From Them
Sure You Might Look Different From Them
But You Are Unique Just The Way You Are
Don't Let Them Tell You Otherwise
It dropped with disappointment,
I could almost hear it rip in half,
As if I had a piece of paper tearing apart in my heart,
His smile had a glint as if he was proud,
He knew the pain he caused as he fucked his silly whores,
Cheating, lying and crying,
Is what he thrived upon,
Adrenaline through his veins that he could not contain,
Was his only way to feel alive,
His chest buzzing with a craze,
There was no stopping his heartbreaking ways.
I dreampt us up late one night.
perfecting your features in my sleep.
softening the words left out of sight,
making valid this shallow leap
of pure star dust.
the planets align for you, my love.
like a snake in a cage
you escaped in a second.
you toy with my rage
until your master beckons.
she is tall and bitter
with hair dark as depression.
no wonder you are with her.
she is a picture of perfection.
yet here i am, dreaming
of the times spent in bed.
where you had me believing
it wasn't all in my head.
Dear if I could only tell you
How you make me feel
I sure would do
How I want your embrace
How I want to hold your face
Dear if I could show you
What I can give you
I will do
How I want to make you mine
Be with you till the end of time
Dear if I could just love you
Knowing I’ll never feel blue
I sure would do
Peace among humans is a must
But all we share is a look of disgust
Disrespect and lack of trust
Peace among humans is there
So little, to find is very rare
But nobody seems to care
Peace among humans is wanted
But everyone is simply blinded
By hatred and frighten
Peace among humans is desired
From everyone who inspired
Other with love whom conspired
