Tell the Night to Hold Me

I made for you, a castle
But I built it in the sand
I steadfastly tried to constrain the tide
But the bastions didn't stand

I planned for you, an Eden
With needs to see us through
But the ripened fruits had corrupted roots
And I fed them all to you 

Tell the night to hold me
I no longer have your arms
I'll brood and swoon, cradled by the moon
Still pining for your charms

Tell the night to hold me
June no longer follows May
'Til the moonbeams, blue, drift me back to you
I'll forget about you ... every day.

I dreamed for you, a family
With two parts that acted one
Yet my truth's demise only bred goodbyes
Lucid of the tales I'd spun

I wished for you a future
Ripe with jubilance and mirth
Still I left recanted and took for granted
The measure of its worth

Tell the night to hold me
I no longer swim your eyes
Instead I stare into vacant air
And count the countless why's

Tell the night to hold me
'Til Apollo's old and gray
For until the stars are not mine, but OURS
I'll forget about you ... every day.

I desired for you a partner
Who would stand beside you, true
Though that came to be, that man wasn't ME
And it broke my heart in two

I promised you'd be happy
And in ways, that's come to be
Wed a man who's good - loves you as he should
I just wish it had been me

Tell the night to hold me
It no longer heeds my will
As I feared the most, I've become a ghost
And I haven't tears to spill

Tell the night to hold me
For I've no more left to say
Please remand what's just as I turn to dust
And forget about you ...

Every day ...

'Til I'm swept with wind, away.

I Forgive You

     You lost my life.
     Sharp as a knife...
     You lost a lot of things.
     Your memory in my heart
     Still sings...

Today I gave you my secrets,
All of them, the ones from Egypt,
And those from Europe, slow motion
Swimming away across the Ocean.
I whispered in your ear
All you didn't want to hear.
    
     And...
     I forgive you,
     I forgive you.

The secrets of the life stolen
While you screech, eyes swollen
With tears of loss.
Both of us kneeling on moss;
I am not cruel, only want your love,
That one word you get so sick of.

     But...
     I will always forgive you,
     I will always forgive you.

Buried so deep inside,
Almost a stone I tried to hide.
I'll always be that seeking child
That wants to be reconciled.

     I lost you before I was born.
     Before I even opened my eyes

          I was forlorn.

Pledge of love and loyalty

This pledge that l,Ntando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.
Indeed l am well aware of the fact that
the beauty of this pledge does not only lie
in word alone but in action as well.

For that reason in every season
I shall show steadfast commitment
to the implementation of this pledge
with a great deal of astuteness.
I therefore commit myself to be your
devoted and delivering husband for
all the years l shall live with you
on this earth.

I shall treat you with the love and care
you deserve as my wife.
Indeed l shall treat you with
the distinction and dignity
that is befitting of the queen of my heart.
That body, that bone, that breath
shall be my mine to treasure,
for sure;
a dearness to promote and protect
for dear life…and love!
I shall stand by and with you in all the
situations of our life.
If the situation demands that we sail,
sail we shall together.
If the situation demands that we
climb,
climb we shall together.

I know very well what l am getting into:
I am getting into a marriage that is
overflowing with blessings.
This marriage- with our mutual
commitment-
will stand the test of time.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
brims over with a transforming power
of love.

This marriage-with our
mutual commitment –
will transform naivety into maturity
troubles into challenges
pretence into practice
pride into progress
bachelorship into companionship.
I pledge to be your steward and partner
for all times.

I shall value the consultations
and decisions that we make as
husband and wife.
As head of the family I shall do nothing

 

to derail our love train for anything else
least of all for personal and selfish reasons.
Now and forever

I am your lawful and loving husband…
This pledge that l, Nothando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.
Indeed I am well aware of the fact that
the beauty of this pledge does not only
lie in pronouncements but in practice
as well.

For this reason every season
I shall demonstrate untiring love
and loyalty to you;
a love and a loyalty that is a living
embodiment of our marriage vows.
I therefore commit myself to be your
honouring, supportive and loving wife
for all the years l shall live with you.
I shall treat you with the love and care
that you deserve as my husband.
Indeed I shall treat you with
the dignity and nobility that is befitting
of the king of my heart.
On my mind it is always fresh
that I am the flesh of your flesh.
Green or grown

I am the bone of your bone.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
elevates me into a kingdom of wifehood.
I shall endevour to put my family first
with all the rights, obligations
and privileges that come with wifehood.
I shall endevour to wipe off and ward off
loneliness and lostness from our relationship,
seeking nothing but your companionship;
banking on your stewardship,
sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

pseudo artistry

Blood that screams mixes with tears of fears,
Over your hypocrisy and useless years.
Fresh cuts don't matter - your attentions yet wane.
It's just too easy to shut down, I could end this pain.

But, escape artists aren't artists at all.

When life ends the real journey begins, the journey to be
Above imperfection and glorified weakness everyone sees.
Life trickles into the drain of the sink, wash it and pretend
The veil is burning off,but there is only so much fire can mend

Besides, escape artists aren't artists at all.

I'm Your King

A burst of white light gamma rays, overbearing a flash of brilliance burns through to my soul everything is like hell the world starts to melt in the blink of an eye just the cold blackness of night I don't care if I am not again what I once was, for at this moment I am greater now than ever before I took the path between teetering, tight roping walking right up to my right divined in my unholy state I thought I told you I am your king still you sit there, hesitating I know you hate me what does that mean? I hate just about everything still I'm chosen I did not wish before now bow down to me refuse me no more for I shall always be your demon until you accept me as your King. I don't even know you though you say we used to be best of friends, you and me the day you ditched me I remember now exactly how it played out back when we were just tiny things even back then I still was King you thought me stupid just a ruse I would laugh inside, you see? not one of you single, mean people ever even knew me in a world, mostly seen to me that is why only I can be your true King and bring forth a new source of light everlasting. As two worlds collide slowly aligned one wrapped in shadows one bathed in white evils swirling in the clouds above I'll always be the king you love to hate or despise as in your blood I thought I told you, I am the one I am the way, the way out shall be shown breathe in my spirit as it carries you away breathe in my faith it shall carry your empty space and deposit you gently on a cloud just enough higher than you've ever dreamed of for I am king now, and your in my hell your in my imagination, I'll just never tell you'll feel as though dreaming, you'll feel now if you try and see you were always found the most shared in the light cast upon me the last bright star in heaven. Denounce my name, if you may One year later, still not afraid A black sheep, a darkened spade That's just life, I'm not right I'm in the wrong, follow along Like a piper, I'll pitch a song Mesmerized, the weak wills sing I thought he told you, he's still our king.

How Could I Not

I cry Jesus...and you're there
Lord...nobody cares...
For me....the way that you do

When peace floods my soul
Like I've never known
How could I Not....love you

On the turbulent sea
There's millions like me
Searching...like I used to do

You said....if I cared
Then your way I'd share
And How could I not....love you

How could I turn away
How could I never say
Thank you..for all that you've done

For laying your life down
Turning my life around
For God giving his only Son

For taking my place
And amazing grace
For healing my heart through and through

For.....forgiving my sins
And being my friend
How could I not.....love you

Fighting Temptation

This guilt I feel consumes me 
I want to let it out 
But I'm terrorfied of the consequences... 
I gave into temptation 
And now I pay the price... 
I'm so sorry for what I've done 
I pray that this isn't the end 
I pray that you can forgive me 
And we can still have our happily ever after... 
One single thought runs through my head 
Over and over again... 
I know what I need to do 
To finally get peace of mind 
But once again I'm consumed with fear... 
Fear of what you'll think 
Fear of what you'll do - what this will mean 
I messed up! That's all there is to it! 
And all I can say is 
I'm so deeply, deeply sorry! 
God was testing me 
And I failed horribly! 
Now I'm living in regret 
I'm completely stuck! 
Show me where to go from here 
Tell me what I'm suppose to do now... 
How do I make this right? 
I'm sorry! I'm so sorry! I'm so deeply sorry! 
For this incredibly stupid thing I've done 
Now I'm at your mercy... 
I can only hope and pray 
That you can forgive me 
Please stay here with me, 
Please dont run away

Apology

Heart aches a great deal.
Feeling the guilt' real.
Pouring through my eyes is tears;
Unable to put in words my fears.
Though am the partial wrong doer'
I wouldn't like to justify, as it is over.

And to you i sing this apology song,
As i cannot forget you for a second long,
For the mistake i committed,  knowing,
Just avoiding your advices from following.
 
Frightened, that the love you bestowed would cease,
I plead you to forgive me and bestow your love in ease.
Punish me with word or hand.
Never ever band me from experiencing your love,
As you are my second mother,
And my heart gives  no place to another.
Accept my apology!

Hymn One

As the title says, this is a hymn sort of thing, though I haven't been able to think up a 
title that I'm really happy with yet.


The LORD, enthroned in Heav’n above,
Has shown his grace and perfect love.
While I was still to sin a slave,
Jesus raised me from the grave,
For at the cross, as Jesus died
A child of wrath was made alive!

And when I did my sins confess,
Christ clothed me with His righteousness.
God did not just the sinner spare,
But called him son and made him heir,
For at the cross, that great exchange,
What Christ had earned, a wretch has gained.

I cannot claim myself to save,
For all my sin was all I gave.
Yet Jesus took this foul donation
And by His blood bought my salvation,
For at the cross, I daren’t forget,
Jesus cleared my unpaid debt.

God removing my disgrace,
Made my heart His dwelling place.
Sealed by Holy Guarantee,
I am dead, Christ lives through me.
For at the cross the curtain tore,
From the heavens to the floor.

Gotta Let Their Soul Cry

 Raped and Molestated in childhood, 
   Abused and Misused in pre-adulthood,
     Alone and confused they stood; feeling
       like tainted goods.

 Let their soul cry, maybe then; they can
  regain their pride. 

 They gotta let their soul cry

 Their darkest secret's they lock  away
   within, this is why their flesh constantly
    feast off sin; and everything in life has a
     beginning, but never render an ending.

 Let their soul cry, Crying is the only way to
  gain their piece of mind.
   
One might ask," Why"? Then , I will reply,"
  They need to see at least one day filled with
     promise rather than pain and see the sun
        without having rain.
     
 They gotta let their soul cry, before their sin
  cause their flesh to die.

In My Eyes

Find a way to me. A way you will find. See the colors, In my eyes. Drain the grey, And the black. Bring the color, In my eyes. See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. See the rainbow inside. To think I went insane. You weren't mine. That's what would keep me sane. Dreams and flashbacks come into view. Thinking of what could we've been, Thinking of the pictures of you, Thinking of what we had, I knew I was doomed. See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. Much of darkness is in my eyes. Haven't you noticed I've been down? Showed my all the lies, Do you know in my tears, I drown? See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. There I will wait, There I will cry, There I will relate, There I will die. ~ORIGINAL~ <3 Evalina Elena Eshiii E>

A Silent Prayer




                                      Born in sin, 
                                innocent some say,
               Silent the night, as it creeps on into day.
                        A Silent plea for forgiveness,
                         a silent sin, a sin of silence, 
                                      silent friend

…                             Souls silently praying, 
                           In silence,  a silent prayer is
                                            Saying.
                                           Save me…

                            In silence I cry, Silently I die….
                                      Pray for silence, 
                                   Silently pray twice
                                      A silent prayer

                                             Saying,
                                           Save me….

UninvitedInfection

Never said yes
And no chance to say no
Both inebriated
So you thought that was the chance for you to go

No violence from what I remember
I woke up in the midst
Too messed up to say a word
Or know the order of events

I dont even know the face
I only thought it was you
And you say it was him, too
My self feels so displaced

Should've paid attention to the signs 
But was too naive
Invite me somewhere unfamiliar
And use the tricks up your sleeve

Just to get off
You shatter the outlook of a young girl
Just to get off 
You put a curtain over my world

Due to your ill wishes and your sickness
I was too dumb to speak
Too embarrassed, too ashamed
I thought it was defeat

After one realization came another
Eventually, nothing is at it seems
While growing up you're given lessons
With age wisdom gets more keen

I can forgive but won't forget
I've also gained through your deception
I've learned not to lose all hope through this
Uninvited infection

Why Must It Be

Can I let you go? Will you be okay? Where you're headed now...to a better place Listen to my words of forgiveness relieving this pain I'd give anything to have you back again To hold you once more in my arms, one more day of happiness you now dwell within my heart Your innocent smile is forever a distant memory, and the times that we share are precious treasures that I spend reliving The Shadow of Death Took you in just one breath Why must it be? I cry behind this closed door, searching desperately for an answer, yet all I feel is an emptiness inside... despair haunts me forevermore Why did you have to go? Why did you have to leave? Why does this have to hurt? Cancer robbed thy life from thee... Why must it be? Fly away Angel Child of Mine Trod thy broken paths, roam away, fly and be free... Why must it be?

Building a bridge to your heart

Building a bridge to your heart


I know... I wasn't there for you
I know... I disappointed you
but... I didn't want to
break your heart

I know...you relied on me
I was a little too carefree
but I didn't want to
break your heart

Chorus

So now I'm gonna build a bridge
Yeah, think I'm gonna build a bridge
So I can come back home, 
and walk across, these rocky waters
Yeah, I'm gonna build a bridge
think I need to build a bridge
to lead me back...
back to your heart

It's taken me so much time
I didn't even realize...
that I broke it...
broke your heart

We cannot go back in time
Now, I've just got to find
another way to bind
your broken heart

Bridge

I think I've got to build it! (oh yeah)
I know I've got to build it! (oh yeah)
Now I'm ready to build it! (for you)

Chorus

So now I'm gonna build a bridge
Yeah, think I'm gonna build a bridge
So I can come back home,
and walk across... these rocky waters
Yeah, I'm gonna build a bridge
think I need to build a bridge
to lead me back...
back to your heart

Forgiveness is a lost art

Forgiveness is a lost art

How can we...
stay together,
while you believe in fantasies

Believe in me...
there's no truth,
to be found inside daydreams

Let's pretend...
that what you've heard
inside your head, never happened

Chorus
Please...don't say your leaving
I can't take another day
I might stop breathing
if I see you're on your way
but, don't stop believing, cause
forgiveness is a lost art,
but it can bind our broken hearts


Let's move on...
and leave, this fiction in the past

Don't you know...
my love for you, will last forever

Trust in me...
to give you everything you've asked

Bridge 1

I only want to see you happy
I only want to be your man
I only want to love you madly
I only want to understand

Bridge 2
Forgiveness is a lost art, but it can bind our broken hearts
Forgiveness is a lost art, but, it can bind our broken hearts


Chorus
Please...don't say your leaving
I can't take another day
I might stop breathing
if I see you're on your way
but, don't stop believing
forgiveness is a lost art,
but it can bind our broken hearts

Bridge 2
Forgiveness is a lost art, but it can bind our broken hearts
Forgiveness is a lost art, but, it can bind our broken hearts

NO MORE

No More

No more;
Lies
Pain
Suffering
Cowardliness
For they break ones spirit

No more;
Violence
Murder
Stealing
Killing
For it makes the world a cold place to stay

No more;
Hiding
Running away
Face your challenges with courage

No more of the less you have
Know that you can grow as long as your roots are deep into the soil
Know that life holds more when you seem empty handed
Have hope and you'll wake through the challenges that lie in front of you

Forgive Me (Sorry)

Forgive me
I don't know what I do
The things that hurt you
Forgotten who are you

I just want to make you happy
I want to see that smile
I have not intended to make you hurt
When I realised it all this while

Forgive me
I don't know what I do
Never try to hurt to you
Almost forgetting who are you

The flowers that bloom your heart
It had fades away
It is because of me
I took all your heart away

Don't want us to be apart
I tried again
I promised not to fail
I promised to finally understand

Forgive me, my dear
I don't know what I do
I never want to hurt you
I don't forget who are you

Forgive me..

Everyday Regrets

        Every Everyday I feel the same old mistakes brushing up my leg and heading 
striaght for my heart. Trying make me sting... stupid memories, I can't shake them away 
and they just make me feel everyday regrets. I knew you were leaving, I could feel it 
inside. Yet it seemed like life just kept moving on... it never let me stop for a minute 
to see how you were doing and I blame myself for not saying good bye. Sometimes I cry 
when I think about you... sometimes I wonder why I didn't just go see you. One more 
mistake and my heart keeps on aching. I'm not ready for this but even so it kills me. 
Everyday regrets about the times i'll never forget and the things I never got to say. I 
know your looking down on me trying to console me but in my mind everything went wrong 
and I wasn't even there... you just passed right along and I couldn't even hold your 
hand. I wanted to be there... I had grown up a lot since this ever ending roller coaster 
ride and just as I was getting off the dizziness still hadn't worn off. You were taking 
away in the middle of the night... I wasn't even there and that makes me sad. I didn't 
hear you voice... I didn't show any remorse and it hurts me deep inside that I will never 
see your heart beat again or see you talk to me like you used to do. Everyday Regrets and 
I keep on blaming myself in a story that just won't ever end and will continue until I 
see your face again. I won't forget, I will remember... I disappointed you and that's all 
I can say for now goodbye is hardly the words I ever wanted to say. But now your gone and 
i'm living with everyday regrets.

YOUR CHOICE

What is it that GOD deals to us, from The Heavens and The Stars?, 
The choices that we make in life, will bring us near or far.
He has given us these two things, they are Life and Free Will too,
as what you choose to do with them, is merely up to You.
You may choose to do the Wrong Thing, leading to The Darkest Night,
Or turn and walk the other way onto The Path of Light.
The Bible says " God Loves Us All " no matter what we do,
All that He is waiting on, is just a call from you!!!!
To tell him you've been going, down a steep and beaten path,
And would he please just show you, Somehow, A way to just get back!!
Now you're Starting Over, and as well you see "  The Light " ,
Your Hope and Faith, God gives you Wings, Now Start A Brand New Life!!

Give me another chance

Give me another chance

When I think about,
my long search for love...
I think back and say,
what was I thinking of

All of my life,
you've been there all along...
I never gave you a chance,
but, you always stayed so strong


Chorus
If I knew then, all that I know right now
I never would have caused you the pain
or, I would have made up for it somehow
but, I didn't know, of all the love you had
all the things you left unsaid
I never would have made...you so sad!


Now, I know you,
and now I know the truth,
the love you've had for me,
you've kept hidden since our youth

So please forgive me,
for all the mistakes I've made...
I played the game of love,
while making your heart break

Chorus
If I knew then, all that I know right now
I never would have caused you the pain
or, I would have made up for it somehow
but, I didn't know, of all the love you had
all the things you left unsaid
I never would have made...you so... sad!

Bridge
So now my love, 
won't you give me another chance
to make it all up to you, 
let's start a new romance...
I promise you...
I'll never cause you pain,
never leave you in the rain
If only you would give...
me another chance!

repeat bridge

SO BEAUTIFUL God You're So Beautiful

green grass, blue skies;
doesn't mean it's a good day;
birds singing in the trees...
rabbits and squirrels sitting across the way, watching me;

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN

robins and sparrows screaming/squawking what appearance how they talk...
talking...
talking to me;
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN

what does this mean, to me...

OH
OH
OH, God you are
SO
SO
God you are SO beautiful
Oh, oh, Lord God;
You are
you are so beautiful;

the maker of all this;
heaven and earth you have created (bliss);
you created...

oh the joy of the joys I rejoice forever more;
cause I long for your embrace and your new a firmament;
My new celestial home;
I can hardly wait, but yet I can somehow taste, the sweet manna
raining down, I'll have my hand out;
as you say "Welcome- home"
 Oh God your so beautiful

A man and his wife they co create life;
But only with you whether it be in honor or strife;
a new birth is born;
some nine months later is formed...
a new born, birth a baby is born

Oh, Lord
Thank you Father;
for the good, for the bad, what I got, what I've had..
what I found, what I lost, you are the upmost;

I can hardly wait, but yet I can somehow taste, and see the manna;
raining down, raining down falling out the platter,
raining down from the 3rd heaven;
 I'll have my hand out;
as you say "Son/Daughter Welcome- home'

OH
OH
OH
God you're so beautiful;
Oh, Lord God you are so beautiful
OH, Lord God you are,
you are
you're so 
YOU are SO BEAUTIFUL

You Live My Testimony

My love is strong.
I use you though the many things you've done wrong.
The road was long but the past is gone and now you have a new song.
A new page to flip;
A new chapter to write;
A new part on this big script.
Satan may try to tempt you as tainted but don't you listen to his games because 
your life
will be my testimony too.
And now the new words you'll speak and the lives you'll renew will bring glory to 
me and
my son who was slew.
Though I warn you, in this new page your company will be few
People may not get you but they'll run later coming to you with their issues
They'll see how you've overcame and then you'll tell 'em bout me and your life will 
then
be shown my testimony. . . 
                                                     You live my testimony.

A Deer Hunter's Prayer

I am at once pleased and saddened that I have taken your life,oh great creature 
of the forest.

I am pleased because I have invested many years honing my woods lore and 
shooting skills for this final result.

I am saddened because I have killed one of God's most beautiful creatures for 
uncertain reasons.

I don't need your flesh to sustain my family nor your hide to clothe them.  

I question myself constantly because I seem to focus an inordinate amount of 
time day-dreaming about forthcoming hunts and re-enacting old hunts in my 
head.

I question why I am obsessed with checking and re-checking my hunting 
equipment as the fall days shorten.

I question why I expose myself to the abuse of the natural elements--drenching 
rain, freezing snow and biting winds, waiting for you to materialize.

I especially question this hidden force of ancient origins that drives me to take 
your life.

I am satisfied that I have not killed just for the sake of killing--that there is 
something deeper, more spiritural at stake.  Perhaps I'm attempting to capture a 
modicum of your nobility, your sheer beauty and ability to live free, for myself.

Regardless of the answers to these probing questions and as I kneel next to 
your lifeless body, I do ask for your forgiveness and promise that your mortal 
remains will not be wasted and that the cherished memories of this hunt will 
remain with me for the balance of my life.

To My Foster Parents With Love

I came into your lives a lost and lonely child,
Full of anger and resentment,
Overwhelmed with fear and confusion.
Yet you took me into your home, your lives, and your hearts.
From the very beginning you tried to make me feel welcome and wanted.
Though I fought you each step of the way you never gave up on me.
Instead you patiently and lovingly took me under your wings,
protecting, guiding and shaping me.
Showing me love and understanding.
Giving freely and openly the praise and affection I so desperately needed.
All the while expecting nothing in return.

As days turned into years you were still there
Making me feel safe and secure,
treating me with respect and fairness,
pushing me to be the best I could be.
And still, there I was fighting you.
Oh, the pain and heartaches you endured at my hands.
Yet there you stood, firm and unwavering.
Never walking away, never giving up.
Always loving me no matter what the cost.

All these years later as I look at my own children
I realize just what you saw and still see when you look at me.
Your Daughter!

I love you.

Dawn

Trying to hold our love together
'Seems I'm doing all the talking
She only stares and listens
Is she thinking about walking

'Been three long hours since midnight
And we're still so far apart
Oh I wonder which will break first
Dawn...or my heart

I watch her gaze fall away
To her bags on the hallway floor
Her eyes make their way past memories
To our bedroom door

Is it staying or leaving fears
What are those tears for
Oh I wonder which will break first
Dawn...or my heart

Dawn means everything to me
She's all that ever matters
Starts my day with sunshine
Makes the nights so much better

Now I'm begging her ......please
Don't leave me in the dark
Oh, I wonder which will break first
Dawn...or my heart

I Don't Need Drugs

The only thing that is in my bong
is my gift of poetry and song.

Drugs are for thugs
that's hell in a nutshell.

I don't smoke
and I've never done coke.

Believe me
I know that I don't always tell thruth
and that I like to lie.
There has been enough brains fried.

Poet till I die.

This Aint Real

Your face, 
Made a fake smile, (you said)
I love you,
I need you,
I want you just for a while,
You told me,
That I made you smile,
All the things you said to me,
Are just words now,
How can we love,
When you love me for yourself,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus: 2x
What are we doin,
If this love ain't real,
What is this feeling,
That I feel,

I'm broken in emotion,
I'm broken in love, (you said)
I need you,
I want you
You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, (so tell me)
How can we love, 
When there's always someone else,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus 2x
Bridge:
How can we love,
When there's always someone else,
How can we make up,
When you only love me for yourself,

verse #3:
You got me imprisoned, 
Inside your heart,
When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,
chorus 2x

Solipsist

Let the Deicide commence.

You're a voyeur at best!
Your vampiric heart is beating out of your chest!
And you have slayed the ones whom would love you for anything less
Ready to consume the final fragments of innocence,
And for you there is no forgiveness,
On your knees pleading, screaming to a tyrant in the skies;
The father of lies.

I will never be enslaved in your superiority
The people agree: jaded of your false dichotomies.
Know: I will be whomever nature intends to be
Apollo and I will share our dreams,
and you will be forced to see
your failure!

I know who you are...
Readily the first to present your scars
Chained by some despot or mental czar
An emotional homunculus in your mind, behind bars
Reluctant to escape - even when proven fake
Your demented mind - depths no one will penetrate!
 
...And you see me suffering
Not caring of any casualties
Just as long you recieve your safeguard of sympathy
So very wary of the masses and their Anarchy; Liberious ways

Solipsist - Is there no one you can see?
Even if she was presented burning?
Solipsist - Is there no one you can believe?
Even if Sophia was screaming?
Solipsist - Know you have killed and abused me
Imprisoned in your own  personal reality
