Ode to Bonnie and Clyde

Take me back to those nightsthose warm summer nights when you were mineI didn’t know it then, but I should have held onfor a love like ours, I’ll never again find We were both so youngso free, innocent and wildI was in love with your spirit, your fire,and the way your eyes crinkle when you…

Breathe In, Breathe Out

  Breathe in, Breathe out Be careful, girl, keep your wits about you I know you’re hurting, that’s obvious But you can’t let them see, don’t let them know Breathe in, Breathe out Steady now, keep that smile on your face They’re all expecting the best out of you Keep dancing their dance with all…

Falling Once More

Gasping, grasping at something to hold her up She’s fallen down the rabbit hole again She told herself that she was free to breathe, free to feel But once again, those familiar walls are closing in Why can’t she find her way out of the darkness? Why does she keep coming back to this place?…

Demons

I’m used to biting my tongue, I’m good at turning my gaze You can do whatever you want to, and be rest assured that I’ll stay I used to live out my days as a machine, going through the motions, showing none of my emotions, just barely getting through the day Things have changed, that’s…

Just Be Still

Just be still, my darling Don’t you know that he’s not going anywhere? He won’t leave you alone like the rest of them You can count on him to always be there Just be still, silly girl He means every word he says to you He’ll always be on your side, no matter what No…

Inky Ode

Let my life flow through your inky scrawl Bring life to my words Make light of my thoughts Open my soul for the world to see The darkest corners of my mind are open now The deepest parts of my heart are on display Will I be judged? Will I be scorned? What will they…

Saving Little Girl Blue

  You’re done counting your fingers The number was never right anyway Sadness never suited you, the color was all wrong Little Girl Blue, you knew that hue wouldn’t stay The raindrops were never your friend, my dear No matter how perfectly they fell on your sad lips They didn’t give you the warmth that…

Walk My Way Again

Pass me by Eyes contact and widen Heartbeat quickens, then stops As you say hello and then walk by My world falls down Crashing, smashing into pieces If only you could feel the way I fall I have a crush on you But a crush is what it is It crushes me every time I…

Truths and Shields

Shielding herself from everyone else No one knows the real her except him She doesn’t want people to know what she feels What she hides, what she knows She doesn’t know She doesn’t show Her feelings held deep inside Only he knows the real her He loves her for every flaw she reveals She hopes,…

Don’t Bother

Don’t bother sending a smile my way Don’t bother asking your friends about me Don’t bother calling my house Caller ID is a wonder Don’t bother asking to come over Don’t bother knocking on my door Don’t bother sneaking closer to me on the couch I don’t want to get close Don’t bother holding my…

Eight Hundred Miles

She’s not screaming at the top of her lungs to clear her throat No, it’s bigger than that Bigger than this place Her heart, his face She can’t find a way out from this maze Twisting, turning, there’s so many dead ends Oblivion’s garden is becoming her fire and it burns in her broken heart…

Moving On

Once again, you’ve let me down This time, though, I’m afraid I cannot let go The one man in my life who should be counted on, has broken my heart again, I should have expected the blow I don’t understand what I did, please tell me, I’m begging you This uncertainty is what’s torturing my…
