Where Are The Summers Of Our Yesterdays,

Where Has Time Gone To Hide Them Away,

I Try Remembering Them All So Clearly,

As My Memory's Quickly Slipping Away,

I Don't Have Much Hope For Tomorrow, 

As I Can Hardly Remember Today,

My Past Holds All My Favorite Memories,

As I Try Holding On, To All I Loved Yesterday.

Dreams.....

Dreams never talked to me again,
After that awful day when,
My fears forced me to put
All my dreams to sleep.

They were looking at me,
Confused at my betrayal,
Hopeful for a miracle,
That never happened.

But now, when I am fighting
The fears, the demons deep inside
I want support and strength
But will my dreams rise from their sleep?
Will they help me again?
Will they guide me again?

Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the prettiest of us all?
Painted lips and painted eyes
Do you see me beneath the lies?
I starve I cry I hate what you show
But I hide it again and don't let them know.

Am I skinny! Am I tall?
Am I pretty enough to make you fall
In love with a girl
Who loved to write
Once, but now is a broken kite
Strings attached now fallen apart
This girl is dying with shards
In her heart.

Mirror mirror in all your eyes
You are killing the girl as time flies by
Every moment beneath the layers
She loses herself, her soul lain bare
Mirror mirror she is fading away
Her edges frayed in shades of gray.
Tired smiles show whiter teeth but
Mirror, do you see her corpse beneath?

The only thing
that we are
supposed to do
is be happy!

We need to
assert
ourselves,
And not
engage
when we do.
It is okay
to change
our mind.

Sometimes, we
just can’t help it.
We just have to do
what we have to do,
and trust that others
will understand.

I was preyed upon;
yet sheltered at
the same time.
How ironic is that?

I am strong because I have endured weaknesses. I am alive because I am a fighter; my battles longer, but my load no lighter!

            "About Heart"
I can give you my heart
with three conditions
First,
Don't break it
Second,
Don't throw it
Third,
Don't pass it,

If you want to do something
then please keep it to yourself
for a few days and then see
The magic of the heart
Your heart will say
"Wherever this heart will go
I will be going with this heart
and never leaving this heart
because this heart is
who made me  love and
this is the heart of my life.

-Chirayu!.

My broken heart
      Is leaking love
            Faster
                  Than any bandage
                       Can handle
                            At this rate
                                 There will be
                                        No love left
                 When you finally
      Come to your senses.               JD

Skylark Challenge 136

                You walk with purpose
                Or so you think
                Your mind somewhat plagued
                At what lies ahead
                In the unforeseen future
                But you continue on
                Hoping your following
                Will reveal to be
                Something other than
                The lambs to the slaughter
                It looks like
                To all of us on the outside.           JD

Feelings are such
an excusable crutch
For not doing much.

the sound of the dripping on the damp walls
from the beer bottle you threw at mother
she’s on the ground
bleeding out
yet you stand in my way of helping her
you laugh at her pain
her misery
but she still loves you
i don’t understand why
all i know is
i’m not going to break her heart like you intended too
i will keep her safe
and away from you
your hands
are too powerful
our hands
are too weak
you nail our feet to the ground
and order that we stand up.

I found depression in my mothers knuckles
And behind my fathers smile

Sometimes it hits you for no reason

And sometimes despite the sun
You can't find the light

But that’s alright.

These scars that you see,
Are mortal gifts,
They don't bother me at all,
         Will fade away with time,
         From my body and mind!

The ones that haunt me,
Are the ones you don't see,
Still raw, still sore,
        On my soul I brave,
        They'll accompany me to my grave!

She closed her eyes and breathed,
Its time you go,
Confusion clear in his eyes,
Sadness in hers,
But he knew if he stayed,
He would destroy her.
