    Wrap me up
    In your words
    You know what to say
    Right when I need
    To hear it the most
    Your voice
    Chases away
    The demons
    That lie and wait
    To whisper 
    Sweet nothings of hate

    I will not give you
    The reaction
    You crave for
    I will not explode
    In the anger
    You wish to see
    I will not say
    The words
    You'll condemn me for later
    I will not give you
    The satisfaction
    You need for your own survival

    I used to tell myself
    No more, not another one
    But then you came 
    Into my life
    And you became
    My kryptonite
    The one who gives me
    Butterflies
    The one I dream about
    All through the night
    The smile I wear
    For every minute
    Of every hour
    My king 
    In tattooed armor

    I wonder
    When people look at me
    If they see
    How I can be
    So easily used
    So easily manipulated
    And take their chance
    Their golden opportunity 
    To pounce on me
    Like I'm prey
    Weaving beautiful words
    Around their serpent tongue
    Coating it in sugar
    So it's sweet and pleasing
    To my heart
    Never once are they
    Repentant
    To breaking it

    You criticize her
    For her weaknesses
    But you don't see her strengths
    You see her faults
    And not the things that make her perfect
    You complain too much
    You don't see everything she does for you
    That most men would kill
    To have a woman like her
    But she loves you
    So she stays
    And deals with the pain
    And you resent her
    And make her feel like part of the furniture
    But she loves you
    So she stays
    You ignore her
    While she's in pain
    And you lie to her
    And it's killing her
    And what you don't know
    Is that her heart
    Has had enough
    It's becoming stone
    You love her
    But she's already gone

    I have the kind of pain
    That makes me angry
    At the world
    And all its heartlessness
    But I have
    The kind of heart
    That will love you
    With all that I am
    For all of my days

    Parting Gifts

    I wonder
    If you could see
    The scars
    On my heart
    Parting gifts
    From the daggers
    All my loves
    Left behind

    The Sun and The Sunflower

    He is the sun
    And I am his sunflower
    His warmth filling me with happiness
    He gazes lovingly at me
    As I gaze longingly for him
    But oh how sad I become
    When the clouds cover you
    And the rain begins
    My petals weep in your absence
    But upon your return
    You assure me
    The rain was much needed
    For me to grow
    Grow closer up towards you
    In your warm, loving embrace

    Inked

    Your skin tells 
    Many tales
    It whispers sweetly to me
    Seducing my fingers
    Black lines and curves
    Right after another
    Tell me more 
    Of your life, my love
    Wrap me in your inky embrace
    Hold me tight 
    And don't let go

    Addicted

    Laying side by side
    With my back 
    Warm against you
    Your hand resting
    On my thigh
    Soft kisses
    On my neck
    You're so intoxicating
    I can't get enough of you
