29 (who?)
This nightmare has resurrected into my finger nails -
peeling my ravenous desires off again.
I don't want to learn my lesson,
I need to learn the hard way by
letting you become my
obsessive nightmare.

I will always be a loveless vampire that
feeds on helpless romantics that try
to hide it. 

I will grant thee a fresh heart
break it myself,
you're wrong
to love 

Clench your unraveling hatred into my skin,
I want to hate you as much as you loved me.

I need to cry your pain, 
because you won't show 
me how much I hurt

- these haunting whispers will stain my lips
when I think of you.

"Why can't I be the one for you?"
but i only needed your heart because someone
stole mine and never gave it back. 

And She Never Looked Backthe moment my imagination took you prisoner;
I became a slave to my fantasies
& when reality awoke beside me,

I felt the morning butterflies drip
from my eyes,
I can't go on with
the thought of
pretending you're mine.

I've dressed us in
my daydreams many
months ago,
but the realism
haunts me as I
repeat this
nightmare time
& time again.

A common thief stole
my attention
but you buried my
consciousness 20
feet under,
had my memories
choke me til'
I stayed because
you knew that
thieves will never
steal your tears,
because someone robbed
them of their heart
Obsessive Nightmares Part IIstop your lips before i break them in half,
make time stop for us,
i want to kiss the forbidden man that likes to
see my teeth.

those universal eyes have me wishing you were
Peter Pan outside my window,
but i was the one you were
looking for.

Call me your
Our love affair
will exist in NeverLand.
(our dreams is where we'll finally touch.)

No, I don't want your hands embracing my flaws
leave me crying by the window sill
You're still a boy who'll yank out my smiles
in the end.

Let us pretend there's nothing between our
accidental caresses -
cause I'm not surrendering this time.

Obsessive NightmaresHe masqueraded my words with silence,
                   yet i saw his ears fracture when the recognition clogged
his throat.

But his dumbfounded confession scraped the walls of my mouth
                             and hacked away at my determination.

And now i covet his ability to gaze upon me
              and know there's a he

If I've never fallen in love with literature before...this has to be in. I am so in love with this it's ridiculous. I can't even...I can't even deal. :faint: this describes someone I know so well. Keep up the good work.
