Time To Grow Up

Poem By Moth Harris

Been staring down this path for so long
Never thought that growing up could feel so wrong
and I didn't even see
That this is what you need from me

So I may scream and I may cry
But baby just try to understand
This was nothing how I planned
but I'm doing this for you

So much time I've wasted before you came
And every story of love I've told is all the same
Except for the one about me and you
Maybe because this is the only one that's been true

Been staring down this path for so long
Never thought about walking down it for good
but I always knew that I would, just not now
but I'm doing this for you

So I may fight and I may hurt
But it's only worth what it's worth
and baby you're worth it to me
Because you're the only thing I see

When I close my eyes because I'm afraid
For all that time I wish you would've stayed
Never thought it would be time to grow
I just hope you know
I'm doing this for you

#100 - Faction

It's the ghost in the mirror, the shadow in the corner of the room.
The cascading thoughts that drift through my mind so steadily.
It breaks and scrapes, takes away, again, again, another day.
It's where you are, what you've become, darkness.

Ash Misguided

Wrapped in black
Old, dirty, dusty, damaged
Held inside is something beautiful
A cold vacant stare

This Sickness That's In Me

When I'm washed up with those feelings of loneliness
and when there is only this and we can't resist
the bliss of when we kiss but it only exists
when our eyes are trapped in the mist.


The ground shakes with rage
As the world's growing with age
Oh mother natures seen what we've done
Well she was gone we've had our fun

A Ghost In The Window

I've stared out this dirty smudged window many times before
I've seen many nicely dressed people but none go through this door
but I guess that's how life is when you're poor
You don't got money but atleast you don't know what it's for

Something Better

If you ever feel doubt just remember that we all get scared
I should've dared to show you something better than me
Just know that I'm trying to be all that you need
Because I want you so badly to believe in me
