Because when we first met, my heart skipped a beat;
Because I got in too deep, too fast.
Because we would talk deep into the night;
Because it will never happen again.
Because we grew so close, so soon;
Because we weren't as close as I thought.
Because I couldn't just keep my mouth shut;
Because you couldn't just give me an answer.
Because I thought that it would really happen;
Because I found out I was wrong.
Because you held my hand that night;
Because you gave it back and took hers.
Because I gave my heart to you;
Because you took it, but denied me yours.
Because you truly didn't mean to hurt me;
But you did.
by Maggie Hall
Roses are red

From a Friend....
Don't grieve for me,for now I'm free,
I'm following paths god made for me,
I took his hand, I heard him call,
then turned and bid farewell to all
I could not stay another day,
to laugh, to love, to sing, to play,
tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found my peace at close of day.
And if my parting left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy,
a friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
all these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened deep with sorrow,
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow,
My life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
don't lengthen it now with undue grief,
life up your heart and share with me,
God wants me now, he set me free.
Sappy Love Mistake
Here's another speech you'd wish i swallow
Another cue for you to fold your ears
Another train of thought too hard for you to follow
Chugging along to the sound of train that will follow
Please forgive me for my distance
The pain is evident in my existence
Please forgive me for my distance
The shame is manifest in my existence
To your & mine
Sappy love mistake
Life will not stop just cuz you're scared
If you stop
you're non-life... your numb
trying so desperately to "get by" without feeling
Nothing looks clear.... (clean the window)
feel. love. soar. create. explore.
Don't just exist
run to what you don't know....
not toward the expected failure just because it's expected
The scariest thing you can do is accept what's offered unconditionally
Trust. trust me.
Scary because of what could be lost
Worth it because of what could be not lost
Her it sits...... untouched
for you....don't be afraid....chances are worth it
it IS unconditional.
1/17/2000 (you said "so pure" was written for me...this is 4u)
by Patricia Brown
You tie me to the open window,
And hide me from the light.
You parade me to the world you see,
Yet keep me out of sight.
You tell me things when were alone
And silence when ears are listening
You unmask yourself when no ones watching
And hide for eyes that see
With invisible chains you bound me
With a key I can not find
And a lock that can not be broken
With a heart that that's out of reach
Yet you relace me when you need me
Then to the cage when the my work is done
Like a prisoner I sit and wait
To be taken and used again
Called upon when needed
And thrown aside when done
Like a rag doll I sit
With the attention I hunger for
That sweet taste of appreation
by Cee Jay
Se teus cabelos falassem,
que teriam eles para me contar?...
Histórias de sonho e paixão,
todo aquele mundo de ilusão
em que gostas de morar.
Ah! Se teus cabelos pudessem falar,
que teriam eles para me dizer?...
Histórias de derrota e desilusão,
de todo aquele mundo
em que não gostas de viver.
Mas teus cabelos não falam
e nada me podem contar...
e então todas essas histórias
acabam na memória
de quem não quer desabafar.
by Salomé Ribeiro
To Be Here
i watch you shed your oceans conventionally
i watch your tissues fill to the top
i watch you bow in the prescense of the family
i watch you stand in desperation
i hear you stumbling on words
i hear you complimenting on me
i hear you calling back for the lost one
i hear you rumbling the room
but how this is mental peace
and how beautiful it is to listen
yes how great it is to rendezvous
amazing it is to be here
i listen to your telling of the stories
i listen to your remembrances, your lit incenses burning
i listen to your communications to me, to them
i listen to your youth speaking
i look at the pictures of memory
i look at the uncharmed ones frown
i look at the bitter ones unable to stand
i look at the lonely items untouched for now the world
but this soothing silencer
and this averted climb from darkness
yes how fine it feels to see them
terrific it is to be here
Unfigured ??? Unfigured ??? don't you mean disfigured ??
--No, I don't. I'm saying Unfigured....aren't I ???
Yes, you are. Who is unfigured ???
who is her ???
--you know ....her.............
No, I don't know HER !!!
--She is the real life of words. She is her. Her is she. She who can take innocent peaceful words and make them evil and guilty, and, she who can take pure evil and turn them into innocence itself. As I said, HER !!!
Oh.....her !!!! but, why, why unfigured ??
-- because, people think they know her, they think they know what she is saying, but they don't, not at all.
But, what make you think you know ?
-- I just do, and anyway, i don't think I know, I know ........I know
Why does it even matter ???
-- it does, it matters more than you will ever realize
Why do you say that ???
-- not to offend you, but you don't have the capacity of words to realize.
not to offend you ??? do you think that's some kind of compliment ??
--no, I think it's the truth
You and your truth and idealistic ideas, there all a load of crap. You and your words.
-- yeah, me and the words she says, the word she mands. Not my words, not mine. HERS
This conversation isn't going anywhere..you know that ??? don't you ????
-- of course I do, I couldn't every go anywhere with you. Probably not with anyone. Except........her !!!!
you were the wind that lifts me high
and the light in the darkness
you were the stars that shine at night
and the voice of my happiness
you were the sun that shines my day
and the lyrics of my song
you were my jester who is gay
and my oak tree who is strong
you were the pedestal i stood on
and the ground on my feet
you were the rope that i hang on
and the vessel that led my fleet
you were the buried treasure i found
and my genie who grants my wishes
you were my hope who is always around
and picked the broken pieces
by Jed Tallo
white to black
day to night
summer to winter
all seems strange
from the moment the birds flew
fairytale turned nightmare
the tree seems withered
and the sky starts crying
flying high then falling down
the gusts are strong
and the sun barely shines
loaf turned stone
the sea seems calm on the surface
but turbulent waves are below
nice and lean turned sick and twisted
by Jed Tallo
Everything looks good on her
Everyone likes her
She's too perfect
She's nice to everyone
Anything she wears looks good
I despise her for that
by Sammie Dimick
she walks a pusuasive walk on the cat walk
she cannot be the her that she is she cannot be herself
she sucks in her tummy hoping someone would notice her and make her feel like
the one, the one true person shes always wanted to be
she cant hide herself
everyone sees her
starring at her
as she walks down the cat walk
is she afraid
is she worried
lets ask her how she feels....
after she threw up breakfast.
lets ask her family how they feel ...
after the years of struggling trying to make her realize that everyone loves
she cant see the "something" inside her only,only what she hates
I Still Do
That night you hurt me,
That night i forgived you.
The next day you thank me,
The next day i hated you.
My heart couldn't take,
So i forgot.
Your heart couldn't break,
So you called.
To say you loved me,
To say you cared.
I said i loved you,
I said i cared too.
I still do...
by Natalie Leger March 2000
Why do I feel I know you?
Like we have met here once before
That we knew eachother
Yet the time and place
I have forgotten
That you to me where once important
And life could never be without you
That when I looked into your eyes
I saw nothing else that mattered
Yet time and space tells me
That this is not true
That I had never known u
And that this was all a lie
But the feelings of innuendo
That my mind and sole give me
Tell me something different
It is something that I can't reach out to
Something I can not touch
I can't explain this feeling
This yearning for the truth
I want to get know u better
For time tells me I know nothing
And that this feeling I have
Of shared past experiences
Is nothing but a dream
I turn to time and space and tell them
That if this is just so
Then I shall never want to wake
And fine that I am alone
I want to be here
With my someone
The one I believe I know
And never feel that I will lose him
This one that I belong to
When I dream
by Cee Jay
G (Male Symbol/Mars Symbol)
O man, Adam, Adonis
Caught up in your masculinity and virilty,
Of you delusions of what manhood is.
Your smell, your sex.
A right divinely yours.
Of woman, Eve, Aphrodite,
You think she is to be sought and plundered as an animal.
You crave, little knowing you are unfulfilled because we are.
Your sweet talk and lithe tongue being part of your hunt,
and we fall to it as the gazelle falls to a poisoned arrow.
The bars and clubs, your modern hunting ground,
oblivious to the fact that we are there for fun;
just as the doe comes out of the woodlands
into the clearing, to drink from the stream,
to enjoy the sunlight and the company of the 'fish'.
You misconstrue our gaiety.
We are merely an ornament to be displayed at your leisure,
and later our skins will adorn your bed.
Little do you realise what you are doing to us,
Slowly you distort, mutilate and vandalise all we have.
Soon we realise we have become prey,
so we turn to the only defense we have;
We become bitter to eat.
We become brash and flagrant.
Because, as the Lion, it is only the young, the delicate, the helpless that you pursue.
Those who have survived the chase have become flaccid and hackneyed.
You don't enjoy seeing what you enjoyed making;
The bow-legged and flat-backed.
I shall laugh at you now, and gather my sisters around me.
You will always use and abuse.
But I shall be there to stick the pieces back together.
I have found my Father-figure now.
I have found the person who not only hears but listens.
I have sought the man who my intelligence can see,
And I have found that man.
That man is me.
Once again I am alone
Reaching for someone to hold
I feel desperate and undone
This pain has gotten worse
There's no where for me to run
No where to call my home
Who will listen to my words?
I thought I knew who I was
But I found out I am lost
In this sea of the un-love
All I have is a desperate soul
Reaching out to no ones arms
Pealing layers of reject
God knows I've been betrayed
But once again I'm here
With my old companion fear
I'm reaching out for someone to calm me down
For that reason to believe
The light I see in others
But only darkness grows here
Once again is caving in
It feels like a disease
Slowly taking over me
Confidence And Lies
I have to learn how to breathe again
After he confessed to me what he's done
what i knew of him has become faded and worn
And to think a wonderful entity like him would end it all because
he can't cope
He tells me
I made it better but i really don't know
he thinks he's disappointed me
that's not true
but i'm hiding the truth from everyone
I can't tell them what he did
maybe i'm being too silent
and they think something's wrong
all i know is
the darkness is closing in
and the only one i can confide in
For Your Birthday
(For your birthday I wish you...)
That the sun may fondle you all day,
that the birds may sing for you,
that the postman may bring you heaps of wishes,
that your toast mayn't get burnt.
That you are not late for the job,
that someone may make a present of flowers to you,
that the others may offer for you,
that the water of your bath mayn't cool off.
That the soap may not fall on the floor,
that "that somebody" may tell you: "I love you",
that many people may discover you're exceptional,
that you may have thousands of days like this one.
That your desires may be realized,
and that you may spend a beautiful day.
Hold on tight
cause everything will be alright
i'll make sure of that
don't lie to me
i know you're scared
just give me a chance
and i'll show you i cared
let me prove myself to you
i'll make you happy
by Vince Rodier
take me down with you
drown me in your misery
lay your burrdens on me
beg me to accept you hide
your secrets deep inside
let me keep believing you are god.
i am dying hurting
i am losing fighting
i am crying breaking
i am nothing a void
As The Days Go By
As the days go bye I will always cherish your loving touch, your loving voice.
As the days go bye I will keep all the things you gave me.
I will make sure to keep-in-touch and keep all the grand advice you give me,
I will keep it close.
I will make sure to try me hardest and not give up.
After all the encourgment that you have provided me with, how could I ever
give up. And even at the moment of your death I will keep all of your loving things
you have gave me close.
by Michael Malloy
Search in blue,
Search in black,
search in everything I have,
But I don´t find,
this who I am
who I pretend to be.
And in the mask
I hide behind
My many selves
are taped and carved
there´s no escape
I´d run away
In my cage I crawl
can take no more
wild spirit set me free
you´re my last hope,
I can see
And in my last attemp
to get away
begins to fade.
I feel so weak
my shell just melt
I start to cry
and light is death.
And hopes are wrapped
around cotton clouds
unreal they start
and so will end.
The only that remains
when life gets to its end,
a flash comes from the past
and brings back to my mind
the echoes of my life.
by Cristina Pereira (2000)
But I guess I don't want them to be heard
At least not coming from me
Because you see me standing in the corner
So I guess that makes me yellow
You are so quiet
Struggling to keep my head up
But I guess you'll never know
Alanis strides across the stage.
Well I thought I would be a mother
I've tried hard to be right
Oh but how to go
This sensation is bittersweet bliss;
But now what can stimulate you?
Theres no width to the threshold of life,
You're so untouchable
You're so unloveable
You're close to kin and next to me
You're so unthinkable
Who are you anyway?
You're close to kin and next to me
by Angela K. Dyson
You wanted me to be perfect, but you never said it out loud.
wrong, wrong, wrong. lost is the way i feel.

Use your tears when you want calm your pain

i now think i'm realizing
by Dawn Sanders
She speaks truth
I'd be lying if I said I didnt love you anymore,
I've laid here & there with my back towards you,
Today is far away from yesterday,
She's proved that she can do it,
I have a strength deep inside me
It's not a word
This song is sung
Happy when she sings me a song
