"Romeo A Go-Go" by Every Time I Die

Tonight I'm coming home in a coma if it fucking kills me.
Listless but relieved, beaming like a newborn hostage.
Orphaned by an ambulance. I got this new black eye just for you.
Your hopeless romantic now helplessly rheumatic.
Poets grinding teeth to powder. All my vowels are getting lost in the gauze.
Misinterpret courting for the cursing of a drooling fool.
Here's to cheap sex and codeine in a hospital bed. And maybe I'd object, if I felt at all alive.
Everybody's dying to lay down with you. I got the order all wrong.
I must have bumped my head. Maybe I should quiet down.
Don't bet on another blackout. I'll be all right. There's an army at my
window waiting to lose this fight.
I'm the king of this all night clinic. The fucking champion.
Tonight we'll feast like royalty in traction; happy and meticulous.
There's a delicate love song in this; kicked out and dripping in verse.
Go get your gun because God won't show. He sent a poet instead.
The Don Quixote of the ICU. Quite impressive for a cripple. Munchausen by proxy of a muse.
Tempt not a desperate man. This split lip is for you. I traded it for an outdated tooth.

everything i will post here will be original works.. as much as there are many writers and song writers that i appreciate, i feel that my words express myself the best. :]

so to start:


it's funny how we both pick up on the little things..

i noticed that you noticed.

a few words on a page. added, subtracted and then added again. i'm here, you are there but somehow we always manage to meet in the middle. but the middle is rocky, high peaks and loose footing, sharp edges threaten to make us bleed.

we both thrive on the danger, the anticipation, the quickening of heartbeats. it was the downfall once, yet it won't happen again. i know my place, clearer than i allowed myself before. i realize the lines scorched into the earth by fires burnt too hot, blazed out of control only to be put out by the salty water of loss.

i noticed that you noticed that i remembered.

i felt the sigh, the turmoil of muscles, fighting the evil and sin of the flesh. i, myself, resisting the urge to see if it was just a past fluke of passion and wanting, but unable to step on that path again.

i noticed that you noticed my fear.

A Song I Enjoy

Sinch - Plasma

I don't want to feel this way, I don't want to pretend that these feelings don't exist..
But I'm aware I can see you, through jaded eyes my faded broken gaze, strays,
Sometimes I think that these chains can be broken,
I don't want to hide the truth, but be fair, I can see your eyes,
Your lying through your teeth and I'm aware..
Sometimes I think that these chains can be broken,
Your face shines.. Mine withers away,
And I'm afraid I'll make mistakes I'll always regret,
And by the way would it be O.K. if we went our seperate ways?
To see if in time the shades are drawn back again,
The light reflects upon what might have been..
And I will be there to see it up in flames, our fates rearranged
But I'm not that guy, I'm not a saint,
Thoughts of you can be sealed,
Precious hopes can fade and all these thoughts are erased,
Sometimes I think that these chains can be broken..

One of the most gorgeous songs I've ever heard

Alexander the Burn Victim
scarling.

There's no second chances
No time for romances, o-oh
No consequence weighing
His heart left decaying, o-oh
He's lost in his thinking
Disguised by his drinking, o-oh
No regret or falling
No well wishers calling, o-oh

And when he sleeps i hope he's okay
But when he drinks he hits on you
And when he sleeps i know he's okay
Cos when he dreams he's someone new

The pain of desire
Is quenched by the fire, o-oh
No inkling of caring
He's grief-striken, staring, o-oh
No bloodloss or feeling
As smoke hits the ceiling, o-oh
He sips down his sorrow
And prays "no tomorrow," o-oh

O-oh

But when he sleeps i hope he's okay
But when he drinks he hits on you
And when he sleeps i know he's okay
Cos when he dreams he's someone new

I love you, alexander (x4)
We'll be together forever

It's all for love (x11)
It's all for . . .

And when he sleeps i hope he's okay
But when he drinks he hits on you
And when he sleeps i know he's okay
Cos when he dreams he's someone new, ooh

No hearing her laughter
For in the hereafter, o-oh
He's handsome, well-spoken
His heart can't be broken, o-oh

O-oh, oh
O-oh, oh

Goodnight, alexander
Goodnight

Goodnight . . .
