As the silent raindrops fall


It's been a while and I have no idea where this came from but it's something I just came up with after dinner and I went rushing up to my room to jot it all down... 

As the silent raindrops fall

The sky grows dark and the light gets sparse
The people keep walking but no one is talking
Alone in the crowd, feelings so detached
And who is there to call, as the silent raindrops fall?

Troubles and fears, heartache and tears
Swimming all around us, but no one notices
Stories worth a dozen cries and words a million dies
But who is there to call, as the silent raindrops fall?

As the city flows below us and the cars rush by,
As the stars shine above us in the grey painted skies,
Standing still in the constant flow,
Standing tall when it’s just for show,
But at the end of day, who is to say
That there’s someone to call, as the silent raindrops fall?

To a better tomorrow

A struggle to leave pain behind, a struggle to gain acknowledgement, whatever it is that you are struggling thru... may this help to ease your struggles.

To a better tomorrow

Head down and shoulders drawn tight
Oh, what a pitiful sight.
Walking out and caving in,
Just thinking of the coulda beens.

In a crowd but so alone,
My pain and sadness never shown.
A smile carved onto my face,
So no one sees how my heart breaks.

Not gonna listen to the words,
I’m not gonna let it hurt.
Walkin’ away from sorrow,
Walkin’ to a better tomorrow.

I’m holding my head up high,
And no one’s gonna see me cry.
No one’s gonna see my tears,
Not gonna let them know my fears.

The cruel words that I still hear,
And the memories of constant fear.
Feelings locked away inside,
I’m hearin’ voices in my mind.

Not gonna listen to the words,
I’m not gonna let it hurt.
Walkin’ away from sorrow,
Walkin’ to a better tomorrow.

I’ve buried the pain inside,
Got no one around to confide.
I’m hiding behind the smiles,
Gonna triumph over these trials.

Working hard not to crumble,
But it’s all been such a struggle.
But I’m learning to get by,
And soon I’ll be able to fly.

Not gonna listen to the words,
I’m not gonna let it hurt.
Walkin’ away from sorrow,
I’m walkin’ to a better tomorrow.

Till forever and a day


I've been writing this for a while but I never got around to finishing it. I just found out about KStew cheating on RPattz on the Yahoo! news, and somehow this seemed fitting. Condolences to RPattz. Hope he'll find someone that doesn't betray his trust next time. 

Till forever and a day

We used to be so close together,
But now you seem so far away.
Our love was meant to be forever,
But now your heart has strayed.

It’s been so long since we’ve spoken,
I don’t even know what to say.
And while our bond’s been broken,
I’ll still love you till forever,
Till forever and a day.

I’ve tried to move on,
And I’ve tried to forget.
Forget how our love’s gone,
Forget the words we’ve said.

Stuck in memories of our past,
No matter where I stayed.
How can I make our love last,
When my trust in you‘s been swayed.

It’s been so long since we’ve spoken,
I don’t even know what to say.
And while our bond’s been broken,
I’ll still love you till forever,
Till forever and a day.

Even thru everything that’s happened,
Many of which I regret to this day,
Even though our bond’s been broken,
I’ll still love you till forever,
Till forever and a day.

Second chance

This was inspired by WhatABlur's RPattz fic: Konstantine. Amazing fic and even more amazing character development.

Second Chance

So lost in our own world,
no thoughts of tomorrow.
Months spent in you presence,
and I was drowning in your essence.

But our goodbye came so swift,
and neither of us treasured this gift.
Letting our love slip away,
instead of asking the other to stay.

This is our second chance,
to give  love another glance.
To treasure the love we once knew,
and to make sure we see this thru.

We drifted our own ways,
but in my heart you stayed.
I thought our love was done,
when in reality, everything's just begun.

We're so different from the past,
maybe this time, our love will last.
Slowly gravitating to each other,
a love that can't be found with another.

This is our second chance,
to continue our unfinished romance.
To live our dreams together,
and hold onto it like it's a treasure.

So,
let's take this second chance.

See me for who I am (repost)


Ok so, fail on my part. Having two blogs is just driving me insane so I'm just dumping them back together now. As soon as I figure out how to close the other one it'll be gone. This one was inspired by Robert Pattinson =) Anyone got any good quotes?

See me for who I am

Wearing new clothes and wearing my shades,
wearing my cap and hiding my face
Struggling to breath out in the crowds,
and I can't speak, can't make a sound.
Eyes watching my every move,
do they really see the truth?

Reports of my every day excursions,
constant speculations of various notions.
Followed everywhere I go,
my privacy is nothing but a show.
Making the front page news, but damn,
can you see me for who I am?

My looks, my money and my fame,
all seem so important in this little game,
but when the cameras stop rolling
and when the lights go out,
I'm just searching for someone
who knows what I'm really all about.

My life on display, from the outside looking in,
every look and touch is portrayed like a sin.
Like a goldfish in  a bowl,
they look but can't see my soul.
I'm making the front page news, but damn,
do you really see me for who I am?

End of my rope

This one is more based on personal experience in a family situation rather than a romantic one but I tweeked it a little. On a side note, is anyone actually reading this stuff? I see page views but no comments so I never know if that's actually people reading this or if it's just because I posted the link to this in my signature thingy for another website. If anyone is actually reading this stuff, it'd be nice to get some constructive criticism =)

End of my rope


A constant struggle for affection,
An endless plea for a connection.
A simple touch, smile or a glance,
anything to prove our love's not by chance.

Happiness and smiles from yesteryears,
nothing left but memories and tears.
The love once so sought after,
no longer seems to matter.

What happened to make you stray?
How could I have made you stay?
No longer knowing how to cope,
I am at the end of my rope.

Happiness and smiles from yesteryears,
nothing left but memories and tears.
Our love now nothing but a bunch of lies,
and every night a little part of me dies.

I'm at the end of my rope,
so give me a sign.
I'm at the end of my rope,
trapped in a world of pain of our design.

I'm at the end of my rope,
nothing left in me to give.
I'm at the end of my rope,
Your faults I'm finding hard to forgive,
because I'm at the end of my rope.

This,
is the end of my rope.

The things that matter most

I was looking at gossip yesterday actually, which is really rare for me, but I wanted to see when Cosmopolis is coming out and then one thing led to another. Anyways all that gossip gave me some inspiration - what is the life of a star like? Or rather, what is going on inside the heads of those around them? I'm sure there's plenty of people who want money, fame and glory... people who stare at the gossip rags and wish it was them on the pages.. these are my thoughts on that.

The things that matter most


What are the important things in life?
When I look around the world, I'm forced to wonder,
why is there so much strife?
Why are so many lives ruined and torn asunder?

The things that matter most,
are the feelings kept inside.
The friends who hold you close,
and the family in which you confide.

It's not about the money,
it's not about the fame.
It's not about the power,
and if you think so, it's a shame.

The things that matter most,
are the ones who understand.
The ones who'll hold you close,
to whom you can cry because you can.

The money will run out,
and the fame can fade.
The power, a handy thing no doubt,
but it'll cost you your life in spades.

Your privacy a thing of the past,
you fame only while your attraction lasts.
The money you can make,
but what will you lose for its sake?

So I plead for those you hold dear,
hold them close and do not fear.
Bid the hold of money, fame and power adios,
because that's not what really matters most.
