More from Jordan Newman

i see angels above me, i see demons below me, fighting over heaven.
i loved her more when i was sober.
i don't want a second chance.
love starts with that of a flickerin' cigarette
i swear i could feel your love before i knew your name.

soul mates

At first her smile would sparkle so brightly it would blind me til I'd stumble,
Carelessly, I fell completely head over heels due to a hushed promised whisper.
Took some time but I realized every word she speaks is chosen with such care,
Every thing done to ensure that she remains hidden from all whom would stare.
Only problem was eventually every one's mask fades, slowly starts to disappear.
What remained to be seen was a horrid truth that was her souls true colour-
This was the pretense I had obtained to base every relationship henceforth after.
Explains, I suppose, why my guard is up whenever someone claims to be a lover,
Since what romance means to me is what hell means to most- a place to silently suffer. 1 comment

I tried so hard to escape the tragedy with vices in hopes of becoming comfortable
Within my own flesh and blood but all that happened was my skin kept getting colder.
Once the torn pages were starting to return to the tattered and torn calendar
I to began to finally crack like those before me, my mask started to slowly crumble
Until the only thing left of it was a memory that forever haunts me and every dear
Dares take upon themselves the duty to try and bond with a man whose endless fever
Happens to make every one whom touches him shiver or those that want to look closer;
Because there exists nothing inside but an empty cage and an ugly, waiting, monster. 1 comment
