It cuts like a knife,
can keep you up at night.
It can stay with you
for all of your life.
It has no one cause,
nor does it have one set cure.
I wish it would stop,
and one day it will.
I just wish that day would come....

wasted heart
Two mocking flowers
Count them…one, two…
Ridicule, joyous ridicule.
Wanting more…
Today was a good day.
It cuts like a knife.
Brain bleeding emotions
Into an otherwise
Useless heart
This one is full.
Time for a new one.

The Scar I Adorn
It cuts like a knife
When you say goodbye
This wound healing slowly
Until again you say hi

So clearly I'm lost
Without you around
When you no longer go
It's then I'll be found

From the depths of my chest
My heart is torn
You're the wound that I wear
The scar I adorn

Premium Member Cuts Like a Knife
Words you say can cut like a knife
Stabbing the very center of my heart
Bleeding to the sounds of your voice
Gasping for breath by your tones
I’m here dying, killed by your words
The sounds and tones crushing my life
I’m hurting by just a simple hello
It’s torture to me and my damaged heart

Guidance of Neon Lights
Loss cuts like a knife
Where you once were silence grows
The city halo beckons
While the breath of death
Lingers right beneath my skin
Tempting glow of fate calls me

Start over again
Without you, yet without dread
Lighting my heart once again
City of Angels
Leading me back to hope, life
Let you go, a new hello

The Haves and the Have nots
In life there are those haves and those who have not
We are told there will always be poor people in life
Yet poverty causes me so much strife
In life.

I hate being so poor
I cannot take it any more
There has to be success in store.

I see the want in the eyes of my wife
My child's hunger cuts like a knife
There has to be an end of this strife
In life....

Premium Member Betrayal
Betrayal cuts like a knife
Spears the heart, bleeding with pain
Causing life to spin in strife
Betrayal cuts like a knife
Places a double edged memory in life
Anger is fueled, as tears rain
Betrayal cuts like a knife
Spears the heart, bleeding in pain

Who Is He?
Boisterous and bold
With an acid wit
Misunderstood for cold
Exhaustion exasperates but can’t quit
His poison pen
I know so well
His thoughts betray him
With his wicked spell
His caustic tongue 
Cuts like a knife
Destroys my soul
Leaves me in strife
But there’s another side
I sometimes see
With eloquent devotion and decadent beauty
Cascading in the whimsical tide

My one true love
My heart beats only for you. My love for you is nothing but true.
When we first met, and i looked into your eyes, I knew that your love
for me was not a disguise. Whenever we are apart, I miss you so much
I miss your loving and tender touch. I know that I have found my true love
the one that I want for the rest of my life. Because every time we are apart
it cuts like a knife....

Jump Off the Balcony
Should I jump off the balcony?
And put an end to misery?
What keeps me from ending my life?
This emptiness cuts like a knife

I wait for sleep that does not come
My heart hurts; my feelings are numb
In the trench of my misery
I lay in the dirt around me

I cannot pray as I used to
God, help me to cling on to You
I'll not jump off the balcony
Because You've been sustaining me...

Brother, mother, sister, father
without you, should I bother?
You keep me close and wipe my tears
protect me from all my fears.

When I'm sick, or when I fall
you are the ones that I call.
Never alone with you around
I am always safe and always sound.

My heart is yours, my soul, my life
when you're sad it cuts like a knife.
to make you happy is my wish
something something fish fish fish....

The turn of a Card
The turn of a card, 
the power it brings.
A new point in life
You’ll cry or sing

Amazed every time
truth is confirmed
The thoughts I say
minds concerned

How? I don’t know
I just know to be true
Wanting it in life
Now I’m over due

Gifted? Or a curse?
Never turned it away
Its comfort to many
Giving light every day

The turn of a card
Cuts like a knife
Never gives insight
Into my very own life!...

Important Of Music In Our Lifes
Important of music in or lifes
Helps sooths termoils of daily strifes

Flow and temple of boasted notes
Rythem and rhyme that continues to float

A song from an lonesome heart
Ignited by an passionate start

Fantasy of wanting to belong
In or named in just one song

Spirits can be held on high
And can almost make you cry

So tread on your walk of life
And enjoy the melody that cuts like a knife

 As the tears roll down my face, I can't help but think of how happy we use to be
 The one that use to make me smile and bring me joy is now the bringing me dark clouds and saddness
 Nothing can compare to the feeling of a broken heart and this pain that cuts like a knife
 "In time it will be ok," that's what I tell myself, but the realization of it all won't let me be
 The time we spent, the love we made is all just a memory now
 You will forever be in my heart...

Six Weeks
What have you done to my life
When I think about it, it cuts like a knife
Don’t you have a heart
Or am I just not that smart
For six weeks I sold myself
Defiantly not on the shelf
Needles in my arms
As dangerous as firearms
Had to find a shower
I needed it for will power
A plate of food
If you are in the nude
Every part of me
Wished it could be free
You fed me to the dogs
I’m now in all the catalogues
Speed dial just for fun
I’m there like the noon gun...

Premium Member Long Ago
Long ago and far away
I had a love I thought was true
But he did not beside me stay.
His love waned, while mine grew.

Another time, another place
But right here in my memory.
I reach to touch his dear face
Then like a dream, it's gone from me.

It seems as in another life.
So much time has now passed.
Loneliness cuts like a knife
Since the time I held him last.

I was alive for that brief time
When I was his and he was mine.

Miracle At The Pond
Drink deep the gathering dawn
The pond is a stone throw away
Over a cold road twisting narrow
Turned muddy by mixing rain
Fawns must bow before they drink
Genuflect in genuine reverence
Reflect nature on clear water
Mirror the surface of all things
Be clever beyond all imaginings
There where life cuts like a knife 
Deer jump over brier to escape
Arrows miss and hunters go hungry
But the pond reaches out to refresh
Including those who missed their mark today
Let us prey

I play with razors
 I watch it bleed
 I help it scar
 I keep it close,
 So you might never know
I'm relapsing again,
 Hold on tight 
You’ll regret that night
 But anyways,
Back to that
Better hold on tight
That’s  right,
Hold on tight
I’m relapsing tonight
Yeah, it’s so cute
It’s so cute,
 When you pretend to care
It breaks my heart every time
You’re a good actor
But I’m better
It’s so cute,
It cuts like a knife
Sew it up tight
Take a deep breath,
I’m relapsing tonight
