I hate everything about myself. I hate how my voice is so high pitched it shatters eardrums and champagne glasses like an earthquake. I hate how my curly hair resembles that of an untamed lion with an...

Can't keep running from someone like you. Somehow, I'm still moving towards a love like you. I never know which way I should go. I tried to stand on my own. I looked to my right, then, I looked past m...
Dying Rose
Petals in the wind leaving the rose it once belonged to. Pieces of my heart fall in step each day you are not near. Wanting to preserve the love I once felt. Never saw the end coming. Thought you woul...

I tried to move her with me But she stands like an island in a hurricane. The rain is bitter with my tears, And wind howls my pain. Her cliffs stand against my waves. Still I beat hopeless pleas again...
