Dying Roses

Poem By crystal angel

Where are the roses I wanted?
They are trapped inside my heart shaped box,
along with with all the other broken dreams
sealed away by too many locks.

Where are the roses you promised me?
I thought I was special,
but I guess I was wrong
I am your secret, your toy, you doll
dress me up but leave me at home

Where are the roses you gave me?
they're lying on my grave
you've left them to rot
just like you left me

Where are the roses I once had?
they have been torn apart
just like you did to my now broken heart
where all that is left are the pieces
laying on the floor like dying roses.

Where are the roses that were forgotten?
They come to mind when I think of you
I see them clearly in my head,
and they remind me that we're through.

leave me to die
along with your dreams
following blindly
though you long to see

I Cant Take This Anymore

I wish that someone just knew
I wish that someone could just see
I wish that I didn’t have to keep lying
I wish that someone would just take the time to ask me

My Heart

my heart is broken
and it's all because of you
my heart can't be mended
together with some glue


What are promises?
If not an empty lie?
Wrapped up beautifully,
seeming to fall from the sky.


do you remember
the first time we met
do you remember
the way you used to look at me


Never say I love you
if you don't really care.
Never talk about feelings
that aren't realy there.
