We are alone.

We come alone and go alone;

Friends, Family, the challenges that we meet,

Obstacles that we encountered,

Solitary Journey that we walked on,

Are only steps towards death.

Suffering individuals will not dissappear.

Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter,

They keep cycling like a machine

Just like we move on our lives in cold, hot, and rain.

We are alone.

Flowers bloom and die;

People born and die.

Bees come to flowers and eat their precious,

People come to us and eat our precious;

We are alone.

Never trust and give your life to other

Because nobody will

To you. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I just came up with this idea after looking out the window from my room, doing HW. That time, the sky looks very lonely filled with dark clouds, moving slowly. 

Heebie Jeebies

Just a thought!

I got a case of the "Heebies Jeebies" from this disturbed...

Well, you know the type...

Misguided and delusional, with a melon,

Not quite ripe.

Everytime they make their presents known,

I cringe when I read the line...

Some, off the wall, psycho babble,

Sending shivers up my spine.

What's wrong with people nowadays,

Is it self abuse that rots the brain?

Or just narcissistic tendencies,

Which drive them past insane?

Lonely Bones

My bones lay cold under the rock where the water runs brisk. Preserved for years to be found a day when last I know to be at risk. No sound to be found, so quiet, so dark. Trapped before, trapped now, never at peace, let me die please. Forget my sorrows, let there be no tomorrow, I thought god at least in death, would have given me no unsweet sorrow.     By Rob Casteel

Living in my dark sorrow

Sunshine from time to time when not hidden as if I was pinned to a crime. My shadow dark never leaving my side dragging me down always making me cry. My first memories blamed for things done to me, not knowing to keep or release from me. People bad never sorry for my sorrow, sometimes I wish for no tomorrow.

I didn't do anything

Not a sound nor a word

Yet I find your cruel remarks

Rather disturbed

It's not I who is the monster

But he who points the finger

You are the lesser fiend

Your tounge kills the innocent.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Think about all the people who killed themselves because everyone around them laughed at the way they looked...Imagine not even saying a single word, and someone just busting out laughing in your face... It's not just one person though, it continues on and on throughout your life.. So that person starts reflecting on it, and the only conclusion they can come up with is to commit suicide to end the pain and torment... I mean seriously where is the kindness in peoples hearts? The sad thing in society it's acceptable to make fun of the way a person looks, sure some may say it's shallow or "it's only a joke". But what about when that person takes their OWN life!! I can't understand why we can't accept people for who they are and not judge them for the way they look!!! I mean you can't help the way you look, just like you can't help the color of your skin... I don't understand why can't we all be kind?? It just doesn't make sense.

Lonely cry's
My heart dies
My life falling apart

Lonely cry's 
Loving you so 
The glitter has left my eyes 
But you really don't know

Lonely cry's 
A lost soul
That cant be found
Saying my good byes 
Not person hearing a bit of a sound
Stopping my tears is my goal

Lonely cry's
Crying my last tear 
Bringing out your lies
Losing control is my biggest fear 
Bringing back self esteem and blue skies

My heart is in pain
Wanting you near
Your love has left a stain
But you cant hear

Lonely cry's
You didn't mean to cause
Our love that together ties 
Our love for now we have to put on pause
We weren't meant to say our good byes
God has a plan

For now all i have are these lonely cry's
Don't know what to do
But god will lead me on the right way
But still my heart dies
I know we will be back in each others life someday

When I say the magic word, 

all of this can end. 


After the news I heard today, 

I know exactly where we stand. 


You won't even see it coming, 

It'll be a quick blow to the head. 


Was all this pain really worth it,

when you tried to lay in her bed? 


Even though I hate the bitch,

I'm glad she stood her ground. 


I wish I could have seen your face

when she "sadly" turned you down. 


Now everyone is talking 

you're the joke of the town


Where are you going to turn

now that no one is around?


None of this is my fault,

but I should have seen the signs.


Should have looked a little closer,

should have read between the lines. 


I thought we were in love

when I looked into your eyes.


But now I know it's true,

that even love is blind. 


How do You Know?

How do you know when you've gone too far,
down a road that's cruel and endless?
How do you know when you've gone too far,
down a road that's cruel and friendless?
Is it when the fog has you lost?
Is it when your heart is cold and bound in frost?
Is it when you cease to feel,
or when time can no longer heal?
Is it when you lose your hold?
Is it when you regret the lies you've told,
or is when you've gone too long,
Without your heart knowing what is right or wrong?

Posionous Mist

It must be nice to be so loved,

So powerful,

So whatever you are,

That after a year you still have that hold

On thoughts,

On emotions.

You are like a poison slipped into the blood,

Recycled through arteries and veins,

Through the heart,

From the brain

To the toes.

While I am just mist,

There to pass through,

See through,

So easy to ignore

After sensing me for but a moment.
