A Picture for YouOn a fateful evening in the city of DurantA Picture for You by blackstar707
I sat alone by the fireplace, you see.
All around me were faces scant
of desirable quality.
I dared not speak for it's not my nature.
Instead, I sketched in timid silence.
Then I noticed a curious creature
studying me with distant shyness.
I remained aloof like introverts do
and continued on with my work.
Then, suddenly, out of the blue
the girl approached with a quirk.
For an awkward moment we sat
I looked at her and she looked at me
Then, reluctantly she asked
“You like to draw?” with glee.
I gave her a nod for it was true.
Her eyes lit up like a child's.
“Can I draw a picture for you?”
She questioned, beguiled.
I passed my sketchbook to her hold
and watched as she adorned
the paper with lines so bold
of a trotting unicorn.
When she had finally finished
we introduced ourselves by name.
And, as the night wore on I witnessed
that we were one and the same.
Many years have come and gone
since that night of first meeting.
Before the FallI feel it in every drop of rainBefore the Fall by blackstar707
as I stand here in the cold
Recalling promises through the pain
Left without a hand to hold
The secrets and the lies
I should be used to them by now
Tears fall freely from my eyes
and each one's disavowed
(This is how it feels to be alone
Unraveled at the seams, I've come undone
This is how it feels to be unknown
Just a speck beneath the sun
But don't you worry about me
I was broken before the fall)
I'm trapped inside a house of mirrors
with no hope of escape
Walls reflect my fears and failures
I've never felt so betrayed
I could scream for all I'm worth
and still no one would come
All of my weaknesses unearthed
This exposure leaves me numb
I'm reaching for something in the distance
but it's all been in vain
For so long I've tried to resist this
but the darkness breaks my soul...again

Never BreakYou scratch and claw at the door of my heartNever Break by blackstar707
till all that remains are these scattered parts
You tear down the wall, my defenses fall
and I'm left exposed to your call
Your very words are an icy poison
tainting my veins with hate
You choke me out and shut me down
and whisper “submit to your fate”
/Yet in my moment of weakness
I lift my eyes to yours
You threaten to consume me
But I won't go down so easily/
(My soul is not yours to take
It will not yield to you, so fake
Take back the words you said over the years
I'll forget the fears, blink back the tears
I will rise and fight and never break)
You think you have a hold over me
in your misplaced superiority
I may seem fragile, just skin and bone
But within I have a soul made of stone
I can see the frustration in your eyes
You realize you have no hold over my life
I'm not scared of you anymore
I found a cause worth fighting for
/I refuse to believe you
or let you rule over me
After all you put me through
emptiness is your rea
