Forever TakenShe flutters around in her stylish room
Her clothes laid out in front of her
He sits alone in his dark cold room
Knowing he couldn't ever be further
She picks the clothes she'll wear the next day
To impress the boy who's never caught her gaze
He picks up a cold solid metal blade
Hoping the pain will lower his days
She turns on her music and starts to sing
A love struck song for the boy she barely knows
He slices his arm deep for every little thing
And watches as the stains on the carpet grow
Her thoughts linger on his perfect smile
A boy every girl wants to capture his heart
His thoughts fall onto her all the while
Longing for her hands on his, as just a start
She twirls and smiles as her eyes shine
Imagining dates and movies sure to come
He drops the blade within a short time
Knowing it won't be the last one done
She grins and laughs as she thought of his face
Such an outsider boy, surely never meant for her!
He cries softly as he remembers the place
The very first time he'd felt thes
Our Society's LieWhat you see out on the screen
Doesn't reflect who you really are
They're telling you how to be a queen
But all you become is a broken star
'Inner beauty is just for the ugly'
I must stand as proof of this lie
Your 'friends' like the new ecstasy
While deep inside all you do is die
The way we're supposed to look is a lie
Who's opinion is it to say who we are?
As we follow, the media's noose ties
And our own reality grows much too far
We all have free will as humans, as us
So why do you let them control how you look?
Don't let it go, don't dive under the bus
Don't be proud to say you dress from a book
Whether your thin or fat or in between
Ugly, pretty or average, just plain
Keep believing who you are to yourself: a queen
Don't forget to keep hold through the media's rain
Take these words and all alike these
Hold them close and close your eyes
Believe them, keep remembering, please
Never believe our society's lies
Bury You AwayI need to bury you away
So I can live another day
Hopefully I can see you again
I need to fight your fake tears
So I can make it through my years
I don't want to have to pretend
I'm done with all the lies
I can't look into your eyes
Why do you have to be the best
Keeping my head and face clear
Can't cry, can't show my tears
Bye, until you figure out the rest
You Remind MeYou remind me of the rain
Falling down, causing refrain
Yet we don't need you to live
Always coming slow but strong
Sometimes right, sometimes wrong
Yet we don't see what you give
You remind me of the sun
Holding fast, always redone
But every day you're always there
Rising slow but never stopping
Covered up but never dropping
Giving joy to those few who care
You remind me of the sunset
Always different, always reset
Attracting people to the sky
Different colours all for you
Happy yellow, upset blue
No matter what you always fly
You remind me of a better time
No boasts or bragging, never lies
A time we could grab stars
No matter what may boost us up
Just keep trying to keep up
Remember who we really are
I'm Down Chp. 11John's POV
I looked down at his face, still absently tracing the outlines of his face. His perfect eyes, cute nose.
"What?" I said for lack of anything better. His eyebrows twitched into a frown as I ran my finger across his forehead. "Is something wrong?"
"Just..." He squeezed his eyes tighter, hiding something. "Nothing. Just overwhelmed."
My eyes narrowed a bit. I knew he was hiding something, but I didn't push it. The other thoughts were crowding the negativity I could feel rooting.
I was going to be a father. To Paul's baby. The words felt like someone else's, not mine. I couldn't be a father.
He sighed and shifted his weight, leaning more on my stomach than my lap. He stretched his arms and folded one hand under his head, breathing deeply. "What are we..." He trailed off.
"What are we what, love?" I said softly, cupping his head in my hand. Somehow he felt more fragile now, as though if I touched him he'd break.
"What are we going to pass this off as?" he finally said
My New SightEvery day a brand new start
Opens up a piece of my heart
Never again will I be torn apart
Never again will I play that part
Smiling for no reason each day
No more wishing my pain away
Keeping my commitment to stay
Keeping my promise to not fade away
Laughing at the face of my pain
Singing, dancing in the rain
Caught up in the stars again
Caught up in my life again
Trying to help others smile
Flaunting out my own pure style
Want to go the extra mile
Want to get rid of denial
Waving happily to a random stranger
Steering clear of emotional danger
Letting go of all the bad anger
Letting go of my alter-ranger
Sleeping soundly deep at nights
Standing up when I should fight
Trying to speak for what is right
Trying to speak with my new sight
Dead Man's SwitchIn control, then not -
Sudden loss of grip.
Headlong to where?
Details lost, smudged, streaked.
Careening; no system of
No dead man's switch,
On a fast track -
With or without a god?
