I wish for
a day that I
was not pained
by your memory,
a day when I
did not feel
certain death
was upon me.

I search for
any means
of escape,
yet it seems
a feeble attempt
at erasing that
which will never
vanish from the
depths of my mind.

You have
broken me,
and I can
do nothing
more than
crawl at
your feet,
begging you
to release
me from
this mournful
existence.

You deny my
hand and I have
found a way to
reach my end…

-Brian Shuffett
June 21st, 2010
You stole my passion
Burned my everything
They're all the same here
Locked up change deep inside
I'll never love you
But I've got words to say
You killed the feeling
But the pain's still alive
-Cold; Sick of Man

Some deep words you wrote here, and i liked it!!! I loved how the stanzas were so slim and almost like a free fall because the line didn't end until the last line. Pretty wicked!!

That poem was beautiful! It had a sad feel
to it, and the words were chosen wonderfully. Great work, keep it up C:

By the way, I just noticed your signature.

Shooter McGavin: I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!
Happy Gilmore: You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?
Shooter McGavin: NO!

I love that movie so much. That was also by far my favorite part. :meow:

this comes at a time where I am going through something that makes me feel this way, its comforting to see it in words and that others have similar situations. This is brilliantly done.
