Literature
Dancing
Tonight we dance with ghosts,
As the stars watch,
Sand passes through your fingers,
In a garden bathed in starlight.
I'm weak and buried in sand,
History has a hold of us,
But it's time to say goodbye.
Memories knotted with feeling,
Will present themselves,
But it's time to say goodbye.
Tonight we dance with ghosts,
As the stars watch,
Sand passes through your fingers,
In a garden bathed in starlight.
We recorded the journey,
On tape and on disc,
But the real thing visits us tonight.
Gathered together,
We celebrate,
The real thing is tonight.

Empty Eyes
You were pretty once,
Without the dead look in your eyes,
The weary smile on those lips,
They aren't yours,
Every inch of you was sold,
And used.
You'd give yourself to him,
But there's nothing left to give.
You let them watch you,
They want to see all of you,
But you make them feel dead inside,
You're theirs,
But they won't touch you.
Once you're used.
Turn away,
Where are your eyes?

Staring
Panic, I'm alone,
I just want this feeling to go.
Why are you staring at me?
Without moving you touch me,
I feel the tears again.
Panic, I'm alone,
I just want this feeling to go.
I can't take my eyes off you.
You move and you hurt me,
I can't wake up.
Panic, I'm alone,
The feeling won't go.
Why won't you look at me?
Without moving you choke me,
I feel the tears again.

Fading
Every song I write has been played,
Every thought I have has been said,
Every feeling I have will fade.
They're the only ones that stayed,
The strangers in my head,
Every feeling I have will fade.
Nothing lasts of any impact I've made,
I leave no footprints where I tred,
Every part of me will fade.
Am I thinking or just repeating?

Literature
Going Nowhere
Self centred emotion,
If they could,
The dead would pity me,
Moving only towards them,
As I run nowhere,
I feel them watching me.
Hide your face,
Turn your back,
Close your eyes and pretend you don't know where we're going,
Where does it all lead?
The discombobulation of a nation.
Hideous self pity,
If they could,
The dead would laugh at me,
Soon to join them,
As I run nowhere,
I see them watching me.
Hide your face,
Turn your back,
Close your eyes and strike out,
Where does it all end?
The devastation of nations.
Fear only for myself,
If I could,
I would escape,
Moving the wrong way,
I'm running nowhere,
And I feel him chasing me.

Literature
Confused
The confusing images of my sleep,
Feel so much more real,
Than the days I spend dreaming.
I'll sit awake all night,
Think and worry,
Until it's tomorrow again,
I still think of you sometimes.
I'll insult you because I like you,
I'm sorry,
I'm ignoring you because I like you,
And I'm sorry, but all I can ever be is shamefully me.
I'd like to write about you,
Capture every little detail,
But all I ever do, all I'll ever do,
Is make it all about me.
Wondering exactly why I like you,
I'm so sorry,
Maybe I need to or hope that I'll be loved too,
I'm sorry, but all I can ever be is shamefully me.
Would it ruin the whole subtle game,
If I asked you to write down exactly how you feel,
So that I might understand?
Whatever it is, I assure you I feel the same.
I'll insult you because I like you,
And I'm sorry,
I won't kiss you, but I'd like to,
So sorry,
Trying to forget how much I'd like to.

Watching
To be boring is a sin,
We tune in,
We watch you suffer, cry and die,
At least it's never dull.

An Ode to Your Face
From the moment,
That I saw you,
Doused in light,
From above,
I knew right then,
I thought,
"At least a 9 or a 10"
I know this must be love,
Because you told me on Myspace,
The deepest feelings I've known,
I think I'm obsessed with your face.
I just know,
This will last forever,
As I stare deep in to your eyes,
You sure are pretty.
Its the greatest romance in history,
And the ultimate tragedy,
As I realise your friends don't like me.
Was it really meant to be?

Literature
Thinking
There he was, sat on his own, that boy that thought he was so different, but as much as he hated to admit it was still human.  He'd thought his way through everything; the world, people, what it all meant and yet he was still where he began, for all that had happened in his mind, he was still just sat there.
It's the little things that make you happy, little actions, little words, little thoughts.
Yet, he still felt the need to fill his mind with big things, with big ideas, big worries.
He was sure that with enough thought he could make sense of anything, make sense of everything.

Life
He sat and watched as daylight drained from the world.
The red light of the sunset lit up his pale face and as he sat staring out of the window he was sure he could feel the warmth of the day being sucked away and being replaced by the cool, refreshing night air.
In over two hundred years he had never tired of the thrill of watching the world end its day, knowing that soon he could begin his and then he could be alive.  At least that's how it felt, he found it funny that being dead had enabled him to feel so much more alive than he ever had as one of the living.
At the back of his mind he knew that the high he would feel tonight could never make up for how low he would feel tomorrow, but at that moment it didn't even cross his conscious mind.
That night was going to be about living for the moment.  It was to be about making yourself feel as good as possible, in whatever way possible.  Much like every other night, but somehow this one felt special.

Lead Me Away
Lead me away,
To a beautiful place I never knew was there,
If I look,
I can see,
My world in the distance,
But that doesn't bother me now,
I'm engulfed in this wonderful sound.
My heart,
And my mind,
Are carried away,
To a place beyond what I knew,
I'm surrounded by faces,
Looking on,
Looking bored,
No-one knows I'm not with them anymore,
I'm in a place this music takes me,
So beautiful,
So peaceful,
So touching.
Soon I'll return,
To the world,
The place I live,
Reason will take control again,
Soon I'll be back,
In my life,
All a dull grey compared to the colours I've seen,
And no-one knows,
No-one sees,
Where I've been.

You Get to Me
My heart breaks,
But you don't see,
You just keep on pushing me,
You're nasty,
And it hurts me,
You're always there to kick me,
When I'm down.
I'll cry inside,
But I wont show,
How you're making me feel,
I'm dying inside,
But I can't show,
The way you get to me.
You're always there at my worst times,
Making things harder for me,
Always watching and laughing,
At who I am, how I am, what I feel.
Why can't you see,
What you're doing to me,
Why won't you stop,
When I'm hurt,
Don't you know,
Don't you care,
That you're doing all this to me.
Everything you say seems to hurt me,
Each word chosen to sting,
You push me and push me,
I refuse to cave in.
My heart breaks,
But you don't see,
You just keep on pushing me,
You're nasty,
And it hurts me,
You're always there to kick me,
When I'm down.
I'll cry inside,
But I wont show,
How you're making me feel,
I'm dying inside,
But I can't show,
The way you get to me.
I don't know how much I can take,
I don't know how long until I break,
I don't know h

Distance
I can still smell you,
I can almost feel you here,
I can still see you,
Inside my head,
I can still touch you,
With words from my heart.
Can you hear me?
Do you know how I feel?
Can you feel me?
Do you know what I think?
You're so far away,
Yet we are so close,
So much distance between us,
But we feel so near.
I can still smell you,
I can almost feel you here,
I can still see you,
Inside my head,
I can still touch you,
With words from my heart.
This feeling's so painful,
Yet it feels so good,
And I know that without it,
I would feel so numb.
I can still smell you,
I can almost feel you here,
I can still see you,
Inside my head,
I can still touch you,
With words from my heart.
Can you hear me?
Do you know how I feel?
Can you feel me?
Do you know what I think?

Closing
"I probably wouldn't still be in business if it wasn't for him," He told his customer, smiling to himself, "Not that I will be after today."
The customer silently accepted his change and walked towards the door, he paused, smiled and muttered a goodbye and then walked out into the street.  The bell above the door rang a goodbye and the shopkeeper smiled at the disappearing figure who would be his last customer.  He then looked down at the painting he had just sold and would have to deliver as soon as he shut the shop.  He always felt sad to part with a picture but that was how he made his living and why he had opened the shop in the first place.  He then looked over at the door, which was inviting customers in for their last chance to buy one of the much loved paintings he was selling and decided that there would be no more customers for the day and it was time to close for the last time.
He locked everything up and just about managed to fit the

You
I wonder to myself,
Is this it?
It it you?
I can't help but think,
Am I wrong,
Is this real?
Chorus:  The doubts fill my nervous mind,
I begin to think I'm wrong,
But all I do is see your face,
And I know
I start to get so nervous,
I tell myself I'm not,
I know deep down I love you,
I lie to myself,
Say I'm not
It's all I can do to stop the pain,
Of knowing you don't feel the same,
I just want ot be close to you,
To hug you,
Be with you.
The world's not right when you're not happy,
Or when you're not near me,
When you're upset it upsets me,
I can't stand it when you're sad.
When you smile at me,
The world lights up,
You're always so cheerful,
You glow with love,
So perfect.
If only I wasn't so nervous,
If only I would talk to you,
When you're near I start shaking,
My throat freezes,
I can't talk.

Lost
Where did they go,
All the intentions have faded,
Just distant memories,
Of when I was filled with hope.
The path has faded,
The mud covers everything,
My bare feet sink into the soil,
And I've been left here - alone.
All the things I'd planned,
Have been pushed to the back of the shelf,
I can barely see,
What it is I wanted.
I scramble to find my way,
But I'm lost in the dark,
With no-one here to guide me,
Which way should I turn?
I'm getting more and more lost,
And the wolves are getting close,
Now I'm really panicking,
I need to find the way.
There's a light at the end of the tunnel,
I'm getting so close to it,
As as I emerge into daylight,
The sun warms my face.

That's ok, I don't look at other people's work enough, so I thought I'd make the effort to have a look at some of the pictures on here and ended up visiting barely anything other than your page, I just kept seeing things I liked and then putting them as favourites.
