Escape Plan

Run girl, run
Don’t look back.

Get out now, while you still can.
His eyes are tempting,
but his words are lies.
He will break you to the core,
and use you in the worst ways
Leave you alone to cry.
Run girl, run
A little faster now.
He’s catching up quick.
And he’s gonna be pissed.
Don’t worry about your fall.
Just get right back up
And run girl, run.
Keep your head straight.
No, don’t look back!
He’s got you now.
And the bruises he leaves
Tell the story of a girl
who’s hope he shattered,
and dreams stole.

Run girl, run.
That’s it just like that.
A little faster now
Just a little further…

Monster You Made Me

You stole from me

The one thing that mattered most

Took it and ran

Sick bastard.

You choked me out

So you could breathe.

Nothing but a cheap thrill I was.

Used and forgotten,

I’ll never be the same.

Comfortable,

I will never be.

You took that from me

Without ever looking back.

I can still feel you crawling beneath my skin.

I suffer every night because of you.

Your voice taunts me

Your presence haunts me.

Your face, forever etched my memory

A disease with no cure you are

Killing me slowly behind closed eyes

I’m braindead it seems

Can’t open these eyes

Can’t stop these nightmares.

You gain control

Again.

You break me down from the inside out.

Flashbacks that never end,

engrave your wicked name onto my skin.

I’m cursed

I’m bruised.

I’ll never be more than

The monster you made me.

A Soul Divided

So sick-n-tired a people
Thinkin’ they get what I’m all about
Actin’ cool to my face
They turn around, run their mouths

They never witnessed the battle
All they see are the scars
They disregard all my effort,
Make no note of my gain,
And label me with words
That leave invisible scars

Now it’s my turn to speak.
The mic’s been given to me
I have a story to share
About who I used to be.

See you all think that you know me,
But I say you don’t.
No, you don’t have a clue,
Well listen close
You just might learn something new.

I’ve seen things you could never imagine,
Not even behind your closed eyes.
I’m a living dream, you see
Your childhood nightmares
Are my reality.

There’s a reason I don’t climb up the social ladder
that’s got you all out of breath.
I’ve been too busy fighting.
And the fact of the matter’s that this war rages on in my head.

I’ve faced demons
That’d make even the scariest of monsters
Tremble with fear.
Only to find that the real beast
Was staring me down in the mirror.

I fell so far down
The only place left was up.
I burned so many bridges;
cut all my ties,
But I held on to hope.
I learned to die,
Taught myself how to love.

So take a stroll with me.
Let me show you my city.
Brick by brick I’ve built it up.
And wall by wall they’ve torn it down,
But nothing’s stoppin’ me now
I will never back down.
I’ll raise a home from the ground.

So there ya have it
That’s my side of
A story that you knew nothing about.

Crossfade

It was a night like any other

I woke up to raised voices

I was scared of the booming noises.

On that night like any other.

 

It was a night like any other

I crept out of bed with my teddy by my side

I crawled under the table, there I would hide

On that night like any other.

 

It was a night like any other

My eyes witnessed the violence

My heart broke in silence.

On that night like any other.

 

It was a night like any other.

You didn’t call

You didn’t write

On that night like any other.

 

It was a night like any other.

She came home seeming mortified

She stuttered but said it and then we cried.

On that night like any other.

 

It is a night like any other.

All I can do is reminisce

All I have is what you missed.

On this night like any other.

Time Lapse

Time

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Every second. Every minute

spent looking at the clock.

 

Hours pass, and days go by

The memories begin to fade

right before your very eyes.

 

You were there. Now, you’re here.

Funny how much can change

In only but a year.

 

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Every second. Every minute

dedicated to that clock.

 

Your heart is filled with regret and sorrow,

and the truth starts sinking in.

Eternity sees no yesterday nor does it tomorrow.

 

Try you may, and try you might

reality you cannot phase.

The truth has won this fight.

 

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Every second. Every minute

you are nothing without that clock.

 

Nothing more than a grain of sand

in this hourglass called life.

Only God can have the upperhand.

 

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Way too focused on that clock.

Knight in Tin

Tin ManMy knight in shining armor

Where could you be?

I’ve been trapped here in this tower

Feels like a century.

Are you busy fighting off the trolls

While I’m sitting all alone

And the fire breathing beast below

Is preparing for a feast

My knight in shining armor

My true love you must be

I’ve been waiting here for all these years

For you to slay that dragon

For you to rescue me

My knight in shining armor

The day has finally come

But you do not arrive alone

There’s a lion, a girl, and a scarecrow

Duh-duh-duh-dumb

My knight in shining armor

You are no knight at all

Even with your companions by your side

You could never defeat the monster

Your friend lion says to run and hide.

My knight in shining armor

I can’t even look at you

But before you turned to leave

I swear I heard you say

“Now I know I have a heart,”

In sadness you looked away

“’Cause it’s breaking”

That is what I heard you say.

Fallen Angel

My angel what has happened to you
what have they done?
Your once joyful face is now full of sorrow.
Tell me, how have they hurt you?

Their words are like ice, cold and hard as stone.
Hurtful words never cease to repeat in your head, like a broken record
each time shattering a piece of your heart
tearing at your soul like wolves

You deserve so much better.
So much more than what they could ever give
Nothing good will come from them,
For they do not treasure their souls

My angel, I can’t believe they did this
Your once beautiful face is now etched in my memory, never to be forgotten.
Your wings have now burned out.
You’re looking down on me now.
But you will always be my fallen angel

Silent Ode

It’s getting harder up here to breathe.
Thick smoke is now smothering me.
Clouds of black fill my skies.
Tonight there are no tears to cry.
I dump the liquid in my mouth.
Poison that promises my way out.
The rope pulls tighter on my neck.
Threatening the remains of a harsh train  wreck.
The flames burn deep throughout my flesh.
The sting of pain keeps old memories fresh.
I toy with the blade that rests in my hand.
I only long to leave this land.
I try to think back to a time
When I had no reason to rhyme
Back before I met that thief.
Before he caused me such great grief.
My innocence is what he stole.
Now he is hunting down my soul.
I take the knife and start to carve.
My body is weak, for I have starved.
My will has nearly disappeared.
My heart was the target of his spear.
There are no windows here to break
But somewhere, I know waits my escape.
Hatred seeps slowly through my veins.
Until I cut and start the rains.
On and on I hear him shout.
Oh what happened to my way out?
If I had wings to fly away
Surely I could have escaped
That bitter day back in June,
The end of me, has come so soon.
He should have killed me for all’s sake.
I’ve had much more than I can take.
There is nothing more for me to say.
They never loved me anyway.
I’m still alive but I have gone insane
My silence is only screaming my pain.
