Dusk lingers over the broken hill
Night creeps slowly beneath gloomy skies
Tired souls scramble to their weary beds
While I kneel down on the old dusty carpet and pray.
My spirit groans but I could not utter a single word
Overshadowed by an unusual burden
I forced out a few words and hum a spiritual tune.
The night spread quickly over my bed
And I drifted in a deep slumber instead.
I found myself waiting in a room,
I was waiting for someone but I didn’t know who
A bare shelf attached to a plain wall
With a phone box sitting on top caught my attention.
Someone suddenly came out of nowhere into the unlit room
With a delegation and greeted me heartily.
He shook my hand and gave me the box.
We sat around a table positioned in the center of the room
His chair powerfully arranged to right side
He sat close to the door and I sat next to him
enchanted by his charismatic power
I waited for that ecstatic hour.
His delegation sat around the table at
the darker end of the room clapping
and cheering as he started to speak.
With a big grin and a wide smile
He spoke with confidence, boldness and authority
Suddenly the door cracked opened and a radiant glow of light
straight from the sky radiates upon him
The beaming light rest upon him and covers him as he spoke.
God bless the President
These words woke me up
in the wee hours of the morning.

You cant just ground me here
Just because i am a lunatic to you
Lunatics are never grounded, remember?
In the wall i see a door
On the floor i see an endless pit
You think i am doing the home work? No way!!
I am doing the map work
You see, I have party to night
I even have a date
Are you now so foolish not to remember
how much headache you gave to my grands
Just because of the guy with long hair
Who now has a bald head?
Play the homeland security
I will play the prison break
We will see
which movie sells best

You came unexpectedly, and i was surprised,
you smiled and placed your hand on the glass and cried.
I leaned my head against the glass and told you i am sorry,
i whisper through the phone line, ill start a new story.
You knew i was innocent but you still didn't believe me,
the only person i thought that would stay by my side but you couldn't be.
Mom standing by your side and not wanting to talk,
i got really upset that you came at all cause i didn't want to see you walk.
I needed you, when i was in need,
i was there for you when ever you didn't want to bleed.
I loved you and i cherished you with all my heart,
but before you left your words hit me like a really sharp dart.
You said i failed you,
you cried to me and i knew it was true.
But i needed you to understand me,
but you went your way and upset me.
The glass is now empty and i cant find you even with the fact that I'm out,
i tell you i love you but all you do is shout.
I've lost you for good this time,
so i think i have to do one more crime.

Let me tell you about a game i play
Where i close my eye's and fade away
I float away to a special place
Beyond the star's and moon and space
In this special place you see
There are only two people,Just you and me
In this place,All is right
Nothing but love,And we never fight
In this place,There is no sadness
No cell's,No court's,None of that madness
No bar's to hold us or separate
No one to tell us we can't kiss or touch
I don't just tell you I love you,I show you
But eventually the game must end
My eye's must open,And reality set's in
But someday soon,I'm not sure when
I will close my eye's and play my game again

Here I am without you tears streaming down my face wondering where what when and how did i go wrong? I tried multiple times failed each time hoping to be better next time! Feelings I can't escape or deny. Why did I give up and let my guard down so easily? Many things crossed my mind memories of us back to the very first time we met I instantly knew he was the one and only for me I just had to have him in my life. Soon as I got a chance we agreed on going on a date!! As I sit in that black truck you in the driver's seat music playing as I remember Luke Bryan's CD nightly cruise through the country wind blowing on my face/hair drinking some vodka nothing better to do yet!! Night turns into Am not knowing what to expect! You pulling me closer as Im next to you singing every word to the whole song/CD amazed by how good your voice sounds just like Luke Bryan. As we drank the night away connected falling in love with one anor.. one thing led to another yep luckiest chick alive yur girlfriend! Yur away not by choice as you can imagine me lost miserable ect. waiting for your release date so we can be together again. As it gets closer for you to come home you start acting different accusing me of stuff that's not true! Pushing me away I become friends with someone not wanting anything more than friends! Well one thing led to another not being with any one for 4 1/2 years missing all the things that come with a relationship or more. Never wanting anything like this to happen. The day has come release waiting patiently for a phone call or text and nothing. What can I say it's all my fault i done this to myself!! But honestly if the tables were turned me doing time and him out here on the streets would he be waiting and being faithful?? I don't think so but could be wrong!! Every time my phone rings I hope it's him but of course it's not. 5-6 years is along time to be with someone especially engaged been through so much together like I said it's all my fault can't blame anyone but me! Being in love hurts so I'm devasted life goes on.. So i lose sleep not eat or take care of myself wishin hopen praying delusional I am!!Red i need you As I did then yur My whole life. Everything I dreamed

8 years old and friends with reality
Lost my innocents at a time that was too early.
And though I was always afraid of the night,
at 8 I learned monsters can walk in daylight.
He never should have touched me.
At 14 I met an older boy online and I thought about him all the time
but turns he didn't like me for my mind.
15 I met a boy who loved me in return
but when I denied his desires for intimacy he was very hurt
and I felt nothing but guilt.
I caved for he wanted more
and who was I to make him cry over something so... normal.
18 I was the youngest person there,
that I'm pretty sure..
I quickly gave into the party atmosphere.
I had to much to drink and I barely remember these two events that link but I do remember
that they knew better.
One was older "wiser" so he's much more to blame
because the other boy to play this game had much more deserved this fame.
20. Boyfriend number two, college is where things happen.
Though I know his heart was in the right place, that night had no sense of grace.
I was broken. Do I let myself hurt with words unspoken or do I tell myself
there is nothing you can do now.
I often wonder if it's because I am small, adaptable and kind?
Maybe you can push me down but you can't push my feelings aside.
Why should I have to ask any guy to respect the rights I was born with?
Should I be punished for being trusting and caring, traits my parents always had in mind
When they wanted their little girl to face the world they wanted her to have love sublime.
Now a lampshade constrains me and for that I cannot fully shine
but life's moving fast forward and it's not one we can rewind.

This prison has walls
My own Robin island
Where I pace
Without a picture
To caress my face
Or some hope
That you will dress for me
Making me see
The world from my longing
While you raise my name
To set my vision free
Has no parole
For I cannot live
Without my honor
And I will these walls
Only if you reprieve me
I love you still
I am innocent

Nobody understand this,
Not one of them at all.
The love and the hurt,
And the waiting for your call.
They cannot comprehend my life,
I’m lost and blind to see.
Nothing ever feels the same
When you’re not next to me.
Their hours pass in seconds,
My minutes drag for days.
“Oh it’s gone quite quickly”
That God forsaken phrase!
Everyone knows I miss you
But none notice just how much
They’re not there at my lowest
When I’d kill for your loving touch
They just can’t fathom when I say
Its Tom, I need some space.
All I want is you and me,
Not their interfering face.
No one can begin to grasp,
How it makes me feel.
When I hear your voice at night,
It helps my heart to heal.
Not a soul can realise
The importance of a letter.
Bad day? In pain? Anything,
Your words they make it better.
Birthdays, parties, holidays
All these things to do
I think I’d rather wait
Just to do it all with you.
See, love has made me strong,
I know our love is true.
Because you love me so much,
And boy, do I love you.
