He Sung

BLACKSBURG, Va. (April 16) - A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, cutting down his victims in two attacks two hours apart before the university could grasp what was happening and warn students.The bloodbath ended with the gunman committing suicide, bringing the death toll to 33 and stamping the campus in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains with this unspeakable tragedy, perhaps forever…
Who’s to determine what is right, wrong?
We live for today, but our dreams are life long.
Dreams can be ended by those quick to snap like pythons;
*Click* *clack* *boom*- that quick your life’s gone.
We fight to be bigger or better- no belief in neck n neck;
but everybody’s mortal- proved at Virginia tech.
33 people killed within 2 hours,
this terrorist act went down like 2 towers.
Within 2 hours over 2 dozen people dead,
since 7:15- too early? now eternally at rest.
What were we doing while this campus shooting?
-families recouping while some are out here ‘coupeing’.
Were we sleeping, pillows between our legs, warm and snuggly,
while these students’ dreams were just stopped abruptly?
Monday had students jumping out of windows to escape the pain,
9/11 had workers jumping out of windows to escape the flame.
We just heard he was a student- what was his motive?
Of all the lives taken, NONE of them were owed.
He had no escape, he was chained with flaws-
-he wanted no escape, so he chained the doors.
Walked in the room shooting- he knew what he was doing-
-Cuz handguns need reloading…
Calm face, serious expression.
Students hands stretched up, not to ask a question--
but to beg for mercy.
The remaining students said the shooting seemed to last forever.
Sending himself to hell- he achieved his last endeavor.
Families to mourn, forever and ever.
33 dead; the cause- still a mystery.

Puzzle Piece

I’m so anxious I can’t sleep...

I’m too anxious I can’t eat...

I’m just as anxious as you’re unique-

-As me- with you I am complete.

So without you I’m incomplete:

A puzzle with a missing piece;

Me without that piece is me without peace,

and me without peace means I’m not me

-cause' a puzzle with a missing piece

's picture’s not clear- it’s actually weak;

and me being weak... I cannot see,

so come back to me and give me peace.

I tripped, you tripped- we can get past it;

Let’s leave it in the past like throwback shit.

I’m trying to move forward- not go back, miss;

Back sliding is not in my plans, dig?

Just think of how long we’ve worked in this…

Now you wanna throw the work away over bullshit?

yes, it's bullshit, mere rubbish compared to how we live-

We don’t fit anywhere else, and that’s on some real shit.

How you move on with a smile so quick just puzzles me,

Cuz without you I’m incomplete;

and this I'll repeat

and repeat

and repeat

and repeat

and repeat

and repeat until you get me;

and I'll stick to your mind so you don't forget me.

can you really say you're done, and that you regret me?

You can't even spit out those words- you don't have Tourettes, baby...

From here on out- my heart reads Vacancy.

I can't finish without you- come play with me.

No other woman is fit to lay with me

-Cuz baby, you’re my missing puzzle piece...(read that

Without you, I'm So sick, Come Make me Better-

-Come stay with me, let's get together-

-Together we’re Fab, don’t make me get on one Ne, yo-

The first time around was good, let's make a sequel;

Let me see your gorgeous smile, baby I was just frontin'-

All because of you I went from nothing to somethin'.

Come complete me
