Just A Little

Poem By Lauren Harris

Just a prick, he says
Just a tug, she says
Not much pain at all
Just a little...

Just a scratch, he smiles
Just a stictch, she sighs
Not much blood at all
Just a little...

Just a cut, I say
To make the pain go away
Just a memory
Long since past...

Just some blood
Nothing more
Just a heart
On the floor...

Just enough
To make it bleed
Just enough
To make me see...

That my past hurts me
More than I could physically
Because, after all
These cuts hurt only...
Just a little...

(2006)

(no Name) (Song)

Chorus:
You are my darkness surrounding
And my nightmare within
You are the pain that surrounds me

Dont Tell Me

Don't tell me to stop
When I still want to try
Don't tell me to say what I mean
When I still want to lie

Broken Road

I used to live in darkness
Farthest from the light
I used to live in sorrow
I begged for the night

Sheath-N-Sword

They sucked out my blood
They took away my life

Our Love Never Dies

I close my eyes. And I see you...
You are in my dreams, filling them with light.
I used to live in darkness...
I used to live in sorrow...

Shout
Yelling
Screaming
