Poem - 'Help Them' [12 Oct 2004|06:36pm]

[ mood | sleepy ]

I turned this poem into a song for a lyric contest. I had to cut a lot of it out because the limit for the contest is 125 words. Tell me what you think and cross your fingers for me to do well in the contest...

Help Them

A boy just pulled the trigger back,
Because life’s full of pain.
A girl sits, emotions crushed,
Because others are so vain.
We walk around, heads in the clouds,
But, if we’d only look,
We’d notice the blunt horrors,
Of the hope that’s being took.
We eat, we sleep, we talk just like,
The selfish beings we are.
We are so blessed, fate’s on our side,
While many millions starve.
So, now lie down and push away,
Your dear old sense of greed.
Stop and take the hands,
Of the helpless you can lead.
You think you’re a good person,
You’re not doing something wrong.
What’s wrong’s what you’re not doing,
Because you don’t care for long.
Hero’s are dying every day,
For those they’ll never meet,
And you can’t spare some spare change,
For the beggar on the street.
Hold the hand of a small child,
Let him know that someone’s there.
Sit with a crying stranger,
Tell her not all life’s unfair.
Look down from the mountain,
That we place ourselves upon.
Civilize and join the fight,
Before the chance is gone.
I’ve seen that I was blind before,
I know what I must do.
Help pull the wool back from your eyes.
I need the help of you.

song: Poison written by: Sami [07 Jul 2004|12:10pm]

[ mood | happy ]

You’re my poison. You’re my poison.

Take my hand and lead me to your castle
Be my prince and I’ll be sinful
Mold me with your two strong hands
I just wanna be used again

I’ll be you’re devil and you’re angel
I’ll be naughty I’ll be nice
I’ll take care of all your needs
I don’t need to be held tight

You’re my poison
You’re my dream
You’re my love
And you’re obscene
You touch my hand and make me scream
You’re my poison and my dream

Poison. Poison. You’re my poison. Poison.

Push me up against your cushioned walls
I know you won’t let me fall
Through your anger you set me free
I feel like you’ve rescued me

Hold my hand and kiss me on the lips
I look in your eyes and see romance
Passion, hate, love and pain
The things that make me go insane

You’re my poison
You’re my dream
You’re my love
And you’re obscene
You touch my hand and make me scream
You’re my poison and my dream

Poison. Poison. You’re my poison. Poison.
Be my poison. Poison.
Be my poison.
Be my poison.
Be my poison. Poison.

You’re my poison
You’re my dream
You’re my love
And you’re obscene
You touch my hand and make me scream
You’re my poison and my dream.

I feel like this is my best song ever. Tell me what you think. PLEASE!!! lol

Random writings [01 Jul 2004|08:43pm]

[ mood | high ]

I'm just going to write randomly. I might edit if it starts to sound good, but here goes.

You slapped me in the face again
You left me w/ my blood still draining
My eyes still seeping salty water
I'm still waiting for your love

But I just lay here on your bed naked
Wondering if you'll come back soon
I've been used and abused
Too many times by you

Still I'll soak in my bloody tears
You've left me so confused
I wonder if you really love me
Or if I'm just a toy you choose

Use me again, the feeling I crave
Don't ask me why I feel this way
I just want your touch right now
Even if your not sincere

Weird yes, but that's the mood I'm in. I'm didn't edit anything cuz it's random. Even though it doesn't rhyme which kind of bothers me. But whatever.

Love is an Army song by: LeAnn Rimes [28 Jun 2004|11:53am]

[ mood | bored ]

Fear is an army, fighting against me, fighting a lost cause. If I could only change the uniform, they'd be soldiers of love, marching on and on.
Love is an army, waiting for me, waiting for this girl. If I could only stretch my arms around you, I'd suddenly see, there ain't nothing wrong w/ me.

chorus: Words fly out, the roof of my mouth. They found a flaw in my armor. Hearts so still, your beating will, heal the walls. I remember, remember.

Blue is the ocean, calling me in, calling me near. If I could only learn to breathe down here, I know I would be, at hoome under the sea.
(chorus)

Love is an army waiting for me. Waiting for this girl
