    My Poems

    #1.) Hard Times <p> Get me through these hard times. <br> Be my friend, the shoulder to cry on. <Br> Be my friend, someone who won't cross lines. <br> Be my friend, someone I can't die on. <p> Help me take this pain away. <br> Be my mind, tell me what to do. <br> Be my mind, tell me what to say. <br> Be my mind, tell me what makes me blue. <p> Stay 'til the end. <br> Be my life, lead the way. <br> Be my life, not just my friend. <br> Be my life, make me stay. <p> Don't let me go. <br> Be my smile, the times I frown. <br> Be my smile, when things go wrong. Br> Be my smile, when I'm down. <br> Be my smile, to wear when the days are long. &#9825 <p> #2.) Knife Cuts (Short Version) <p> This knife cuts so deep. <br> Let the blood flow, let it seep. <br> Drown all my sorrows and my grief. <br> With the blade that reflects: Me. <p> #3.) Depressed <p> It grows inside my body. <br> It makes me cry and hurt. <br> It knows how to cut my soul open. <br> It's the main lobby. <br> It never stops, it always lurks. <br> It won't let me be hopin'. <p> It's almost like a knife. <br> Cuts me deeper each time. <br> It severs my heart. <br> It has ruined my life. <br> It has no life-line. <br> It has no end, because it's too smart. <p> I look out the window, seeing only dark. <br> It has me trapped for all of eternity. <br> It's crazy, I'm a mess. <br> I must be a target, am I your mark? <br> What do you want from me? <br> Now I see, it's nothing else, I'm just depressed. <p> [More in the next result.] <p> &#9825 Karma &#9825
