A fat black girl in a skinny white woman’s world That’s where it all started Looking to be accepted into society’s standards Never finding myself aimed towards the target 12th grade…
The night is black as the Dead Sea, As waves of emotions crash over me. The stars glisten in the skies above, As I wish for only a taste of love.   To a dear poet I once knew,
and so many things remind me of you always of you, and you, and you i’m reminded of your hands, and the way your neck curves to meet your shoulders the way my shirt hangs off of you like its ten sizes too big
It Comes In Waves
You said nothing was worse than losing the one you love  I lie here dying while you take yourself apart like a house of cards  The light fades from my eyes whiles yours are burning brightly 
I do not write poetry for people. I do not write poetry for you. I am blessed, yes, but I sit beneath no peepul. It is not for the “ahs” or the “oohs”   I write poetry             Not for me.
I can't speak very well. Words get caught and cluttered in the middle of my brain and what comes out doesn't quite say what I mean. But damn, when I get a pencil Shakespeare's got nothing on me.
Poetry is an open letter that I never mean to send. Poetry is the escape that keeps my family from its end. It keeps my anger from building into a skyscraper,  and it keeps my heart from bleeding on my sleeve.
Ink spots litter my fingers; I see the beauty of words, Words, In jumbled messes, scattered all over what, once, used to be a blank sheet.
I'm not going to say your gut is endless, because there is a bottom. Sometimes you stomach is full, or empty it depends on where I go. A "picky eater" is a name,
Pain, fierce it stings just to think about it.Need, strong enough to kill unless you live without it.
Some lessons in school Come and go Others however Help you to reap and sow   Poetry is a tool that Has many uses The reason I love it, it helps Cope with life’s abuses  
voices in my head so scared i barely went to bed i did not know what to do only if  the people around me knew never much cared for writing until it was all i had putting my thoughts into words
With mind full, ready to burst,Pencil poised and ready.Once was hungry, filled with thirst,but now is sure and steady. Thoughts and ideas pour in and flow out.The dots all connecting.Of my efforts, there can be no doubt.My voice clearly projecting
I wish I could hide Find a place devoid of you But every space is you   No matter the distance I am still next you Caught in your shadown
The saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” But I know that the 26 letters of the alphabet are what makes millions of those words. So, I use my words to create the imagery that's worth a thousand words.
sometimes I feel neverending sometimes I feel very small   today was a small day.   the little piece of paper on the end of the tea bag read me a poem to make me feel better.  
English class is not for me   Essays and speeches I don't like to see   Grammar lessons Just let me be   Reading books Not my cup of Tea   But Poetry, oh Poetry
A wildfire, mind transpired.Burning leaves and flowers.My mind, a fiery shower.I think vivid. Lucid.Thinking of all the things you did.Traveling far off in the distance.
My Poetry is My Life How I convey My Strife This gift it comes from above It is the utensil in which I demonstrate my Love Sometimes it comes in Lyrical waves
Once, on a broken winter's day when I had nothing left No words to say, no power lain upon my shoulder, I wept Silent tears of nothingness, not knowing I was home To feel left without destiny, abandoned, isolated, alone
There is an dimension between love and war; in mentality, arguements occur in thought. In dreams, I get a particular emotion that cannot be tamed, but controled or overthrown.
Burning power of an unbridled storm. Searing Passion of Hatreds' scorn. Guilty pain punctured my soul. My mind was bursting, nearly full. History of anger and heritage of strife,
You came into my life like a whirlwind during my darkest times and with you, you brought a light. Some people just don't understand and some do. You were and still are the one thing I know I can count on, 
  Taking some time to think back It is quite difficult to track The date of the beginning When poetry I found fitting  
I sought to feel. I confused my emotions for people with the ideas I had of them. I remember falling for someone because they were to themselves. Their obscureness brought me great determination.
I've stopped counting I broke my vocabulary free, suddenly I see Why everyone is okay with being numb all the time It's easier to feel nothing, than everything Now, I realize
These words I write Are the only ones that feel right Living in a world of wrong These poems are my songs The songs of struggling to find a way To get through each and every day
When I looked at me What did I see? But a lonesome girl With no personality Then I came across This thing called poetry And read Ego Trippin’ By Nikki Giovanni Only to realize
It all started when i was young and had a love for the way lyrics coursed into my ears and set my body a flame As i acquired years i found my other love The written word ,A bundle of pages that took you to another world
I blush the color of a pink blossoming rose when I think of how you’re in my life. I could travel to a thousand mountaintops and none would make me shiver the way you do.
The magic of poetry starts within ones heart Filled with flair and grace is where it starts Pen in hand every minute of the day Start to sing and thing along the way
You started as just an assignment. Something I had to do to keep that grade up. But, once I was done with you I missed you.   It didn't take long before I had a whole book
People talk about how opinions don’t matter but I think they do. I am united with my fellow poets as we embark on a journey leading us into deeper thoughts. You wonder what being a poet means to me, and I say everything.
You compose a symphony that consists of every sound that resurrects a grim memory. You seek solace in pain, it's the only constant you've ever known.
A Krazy Kahlo and Picasso By Lauren Ward   All I Need Is a Painting. A Picasso. Or maybe a Frida Kahlo.  
"Poetry is lighthearted, fun, and pret​ty!" says the teacher  well this student says,"FUCK THAT!"     For all the times I've been pissed off, let down, upset, wronged, estranged, 
i have faith in someday a someday where it's you and me,kissing and laughing and promisingeternity
Under the waters of the deep blue sea I swam 'cross waters intrigued as can be The waves agreed to show me around; tide in my fawn I had time on my hands, for each day a new flavor
I could fill a notebok with all the things I love I could write until I ran out of ink I could talk until I lost my voice I could and I would but I won't because I'm only allowed one
 i am the ghost you  never knew i was the one  you passed and stole a second glance  i was the ghost you would  turn to in times of woe  i was the one who picked you  up  when  you were down 
I can guarantee that when you see me I will be  overthinking   It's a bit of a curse the outcome can hurt but I'd be lying to say it didn't have its perks  
I thought I needed you,  Desiring your presence  Or your reassuring words Not anymore Others have not relieved the pain
In my heart In my hand I hold heart and give it to you When I close my eyes I see your face When I'm hurt You hold me close I look into your eyes I see our future I see our love
All I need is a hand to hold. Teach me how to be bold I do not need to be told,  I need to be shown not by diagrams and charts  but by the careing of someones heart. 
  YouThe one I wantThe one I hold close to my heartForever and everThe one I don't want to let goYouThe spark that ignites the fire in my soulThe chill ascending upon my spineThe major chords played in our melodyThe emotions carried in my tearsYou
Day one is when I thought your name was weird, then day two being the day that my mind was cleared. On day three, my heart began to experience this feeling,
It shoots up, I smack it down With your answers, your problems Mine, nowhere to be found. One insinuation and they go wild, Mad with intent To spread, and then I smack it down, With your voice, your worries
Is it okay to be  yourself in a world where each person is a  reflection of someone else?    Individuality is not  an original equation from a single person,  but an 
You are a storm. Yet you are nothing.   And life is an ocean, Vast and undiscovered.   It's choppy and crule. Its swells are too much.   Sadness hits in great waves
Funny thing about a certain hot button issue, is people only listen when it comes time to miss you. When they can no longer dismiss you; the latter is a hero. Exploiting their favoritism to avoid the fear of
Your thoughts Your voice Your heart Your bosy All I need Is you
You stand in the middle of the road, to the left of you, down a little ways the road veers right, off into the great unknown. To the right of you, there's a hill
All I need is you.You turn my needs to wants and your presence makes me swoonAll I need is you.I'm a moth to your flame but your flame is all I need to keep me warm in these cold harsh nights stranded
You hold this power. Power of width and life. Power that only the stars ignite. The power in you that starts new discovery. Of places and people, and grand mystery. You rarely seek this type,
Your mind works in curious ways, like the sun only ever reaches it on the days when you let your guard down.Your optimism is much more rare lately.  
only my walls see my tears and only my walls know my fears i keep it all inside except once... when someone pried i opened up and tried but they hurt me so... i nearly died  
Words is the only thing I know how to use.  I don't know what else to do to ignite the fuse.  I've been suffocating in darkness until I saw the light.  I was so scared of 'what if' and 'might'. 
It started with a big boom Matter, thought, a spark, she forms She emerges from this She has nothing to show   She begins to grow
Something within beats madly, angrily forcing thoughts to the surface.
I fucked up a valium... I been fuckin up. You? That shit don't mean shit... "you, you you..." I been thru that shit... it's all about me now. I'm the head. you're the tail...
  The first time we kissed, When I made the first move, Not you, On the floor of your room It tickled me Like you had been for the past 20 minutes I felt it
I didn’t know a person could be so mentally unstable But I found myself walking into a construction zone The signs said turn back But I forgot my hard hat And I had a hard head I dug myself a whole
Who woulda thought Thunk Think Thinking about you I find myself thinking about you Why What How do you do it It? Take up so much space in my brain
Let it fly, fly aloneSince it has a formAnd fibres fineMade by hands divineHappy is HeAnd beautiful is itAlways full in dressFinest of all the insectsIs the butterfly!
“Have I got, a crush on you”, said he The message passed, a swift From her pair of ears to her brain Her heart was beating up in at the highest Her mind was remembering it on and on
There's a reason why we lie. To ourselves and to others. It's because we're afraid of what the truth might do. To ourselves and to others.
Same page different books.. From the dusty stones… Hidden hopes in your blank looks. In the library of our mind
You radiate throughout dreams, under the darkest corridors of minds slipping in every entry north of the heart. dodge imperfections with every breath enter a new reality, doors locked
See your flower is delicate Delegates of angels persuade to me you're heaven sent But you know how the devil is.. With his disquises Almost Compromised me From the ground grew a violet
i am a girl.   i'm not just a simple girl. not your girl-next-door.    i'm not the popular girl that has girls and guys   on their knees just to be  seen by.   
It was you But it was I It was us together we were unstoppable Black and white Then life It was just a dream Blue and clear Reject and hurt I cried a river For it was a dream
YOU   You are the one that my mind will not stay off of; you are the one whose smile pimples cheeks nose eyes I cannot stop staring at; when our eyes
It won’t kill you. No, what you’re afraid of won’t hurt. But you can. The fear can drive you.  Drive you off course. Drive you into a rail.
I am me From my head  To my toes I am the universe But I am very small I am my culture But I am different I am bisexual But I am not confused I am a friend
Not one of the Me's -But all of the Me's-  All of the different variations of I -All of the I's in me-  Only one you will see. Only one that will stop,
This is a response poem to something I heard one of my 'friends' say - "People who want to commit suicide are stupid and selfish. If they want to die, I say let them. They can have fun in Hell."   
Without me you are lost With me you are found Without me you cannot touch With me you hear sound   You are nothing But closed eyes And dry lips I am something  
I will be your strong tree I will, just give me the key I am alone Atleast I am not a clone I will be there when you cry I will leave if you lie I am true  I don't know what you go through
The world around me crumbling to the ground, me caught in the middle while pebbles of once beautiful castle walls surround me, drown me. But you, you saved me. And me? I let you.
There is so much to give and so much to do. Don't let anyone ever hurt you. You are beutiful and perfecty inperfect in your own and uniqe ways. Show the world who you really are and what you are capable of.
See, Hydrogen atoms started at the beginning of everything, At the base of the Big Bang,
You are the one, You are the best, You are amazing, And here's the rest; Why settle for less When you could have the world?
I don't know what you've been told but baby girl  you're  beyond amazing  eccentric to the world  an angel in disguise  undeniably genuine  talented beyond measure
Be Positive Be Awesome Be Kind Be You The air that we breathe is awesome The sky is awesome The grass is awesome The sun is awesome The place we call home is awesome
Life is so mysterious,Also very precarious.It can get tedious,Unless you are spontaneous!Life can be a hindrance,Hidden from the brilliance,Difficult to make a difference,
Is today a good day?  Just because the sun doesn't shine today, doesn't mean it isn't. The rain may bring a good day for someone who has a hard time finding fresh water.
Reptile; Cold scales abraze my once soft flesh, An egg that never hatched. Now basking under hell's sun is hell's son Parents tell me "do better, You don't want to go to hell...son."
Can I be lost in your arms Can I forget what it is to remember Can I lie and say goodnight Would you believe me?   If I try to deceive you Would you even care Would you look away
My heart races Your brown eyes My stomach gets butterflies Your smile My brain can't think straight Your sweater My favorite Your hugs  My weakness Your voice My harmony
I have this reoccurring dream.  Me laying outside on a blanket watching the stars with "you" But "you" seems to change every time I do.  I've always been fond of the nighttime sky.
I believe in you,  the way you believe in me. My weaknesses, from me, you drew. Inner beauty, in me, you see. With no hesitation, I knew. You were and always have been the one for me. My love for you
Having a bad day? Feeling down? Are the skies gray? Just smile and turn your life around You know why? Because you are wonderful Don't let your happiness die Life isn't awful
My hope is powered by the greatness of your heart. My smile is fueled by the sweetness of your words. My mind is functioning with the help of your rambunctious emotions.
There is something about the cold,still air That made your senses sharpen And suddenly, you see every hair on your arm, standing up And feel small bumps infecting your skin,
You were born to lose but built to win.Always constantly in the Face of adversity, But sill you find the will to prevail.That's awesome.While adversity shape shifts in different forms, scenarios, and pigments
Valencia, slumber, and inkwell Shades and tainted images hide well The blemishes and marks that always dwell   Lest depicting realness, an uncensored weakness 
I needed you to say something magically mind altering. Something that would knock me off course with very weak knees, leaving me lingering on your every word like an obtuse cobra swaying into a hypnotic trance.
It's funny to think I've been called type A. That we could label a person with letters, put them into groups. I'd say I don't fit characteristics of anyone else.
The way you wake up and get out of bed, The way the warm shower water feels on your head, The way you're so tired and forget what Mom said, You. The way the kids point and and laugh and play,
Your skin, it breathes Your hair, it speaks, Your mouth it loves. You speak gods into the minds of men and your silence shakes the Earth that supports you Its hard to feel awesome, when pain lingers
    my soul is well, yet my mind is lost in an Identity crisis.
When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
The last day before your good Goodbye I do hope to see you one more time Dreamt of the time to pass and say Hi
I hate the things that reminds me of you I hate myself for thinking about you
I want you in my life Read between the lines Behind this words I hide The truth I keep inside
I wanna cry but the tears won't show
How it feel up there? That act you got hanging in

“Muse, where are you?”, I wonder. “Muse, what are you?”, I  ponder. I think about you all the time. I contemplate your existence. Are you here or are you there?
Valencia, slumber, and inkwell Shades and tainted images hide well The blemishes and marks that always dwell   Lest depicting realness, an uncensored weakness 
i don't need this boy anymore  that's what i keep telling myself   until i'm laying in darkness  buried by threadbare quilts and my own secret sadness  
You’re a soft bed of grass, Sans the bugs, briers, and burrs That have plagued me before. You are secluded from the cityscape, But not lacking in excitement. In solitude someplace,
If you know me by my presence, You know me by my appearance. If you know me by appearance, You probably don't know about my absence. If you know me by my absence, You don't know my reason.
We chase after the intangible Leaving our presence as history Forgetting to remember that we are in the Now. And in the midst of each others desolation,
Roses are red Violets are blue My name is Nick But for some odd reason Some call me Nickypoo  
I love the way your words cuuurl up Around your front teeth Like a cat’s tail... Or a breath of cool morning air that floats up to fill the space Before finally getting spat out.  
I am a nice ass,
The tablet hovers before my face And captures it with an audible click a still reflection of me will join a sea of photography and my lungs are about to be flushed with eyes that are thirsty for their
People always make analogies Saying birds are free; they want to be birds. What is a bird? Nothing more than hair.
I find myself insecure when I look at myself without any editing. I'll feel as if I am discrediting... I compare myself to other girls, I believe that I am not beautiful to the whole-wide world.
Jesus walks with in me day by day When I show them the real me they say it's not okay They say it's weird and awkward to show who you really are
It is 4:43 am, & nothing feels rightI am tossing and turning, 
When will people start to care?All around them wrongs are being doneA poem here, a poem thereI now think that people try to stay dumb
Pressing further down the road. Pressing harder on the petal. Racing my way- To the thought of you. At the end of this road, I see me coming home. Back to you. Gripping the steering wheel,
  A relationship with another human being is such an amzing thing
Like wind, I'm unpredictable. Bringing a breeze, I cause people to move in my direction and not be still. Making the day that much better, to know I am wanted and not wished to go away.
What is “Flawless”? Like what does it mean? You don’t know, well here is a definition Flawless by definition means without any blemishes or imperfections; perfect Now tell me are you flawless?
Looking into the abyss What do I see? I see me Wearing my ugg boots And skinny jeans “I am pretty” I say “I am smart” I say “I am me” I say  
I don't know what I want
My hair is thinning My skin is almost pale My life is nothing like a fairytale I am of the average height Contacts help me see what's in sight I look for depth in everyone
Time after time people are labeled as things Words of hurt, words that crash dreams Because of how we look, not for what we be But ignoring them all makes me a happier me
As the population grows, Every human being becomes less important, Of less concern to the person next to them. One day we will have found a solution to running out of resources and created more,
I used to look in a mirror and see nothing more than a pale, meaningless skeleton Encompassed by pasty, white flesh with scars that seemed to never fade away no matter how much they healed,
live through me who lives to be
Everyone is beautiful, Perfect. Just the way they are. Some might even saw, flawless, I mean, all humans have flaws, But are flaws really flaws when it makes them who they are?
I will always believe in you though we’ve never shared a word The years that pass with grains of sand only to be remembered. In your tears I’ve understood every word no one else ever heard.
I don't remember jumping
My place is stained with you I look to my left and it's where we laughed I look to the right and it's where we loved The chair that I sat in as you broke the news The bed I lay on as I listened to you
Discolored Skin and Acne Marks..... I am BEAUTIFUL! Stretch Marks and Scars...... I am BEAUTIFUL!

Each morning my face looks at me, Some days with sleep still in its eyes. And, though I like the face I see, It's time to put on my disguise. The brown eyelashes become black;
I am a beautiful woman But my mind body and soul Is confined by the powers of this intertwined worlds Of what we call social media. The filters of normal, Kentucky, slumber, and rise
Ive started seeing the universe in everything. And that is why when i am in nature i am full of joy. because i know that everyone has a bit of blue sky in them  and even when the dawn approaches,

to speak but cannot form the words that would fulfill my thoughts desire. to gain freedom but scared to face the breakout of war against another. yes, yes this is how you and i must feel, this is how you and i try to explain,
Shame on you Filter! For hiding my little mole that I have on my left side
I look in a mirror and see nothing I take a picture and see a plan face Only when adding a filter will I feel like something When I add filter I hide the dark tint on my skin Making it my very own filter
Aye, that natural beauty tells a story show my power and courage to not be like others Show off myself because theres only one of me with added enhancers we are all the same
Alice has done something horrible.  
I am me. I have a passion for sports, but I am not a "jock". I love learning, but I am not a "nerd". I enjoy relaxing, but I am not "lazy". I wear baggy sweats, but I am not a "bum". I am me.  
There’s a woman there, I can see her. She stands out to me, it’s her eyes. Something about the way she’s staring back at me grabs me.
Heart And Hustle I can do it.
Baby, I've been thinking about us lately, The way I smile when I'm in your arms, How you make me feel safe and at home, I just wanted to let you know, I love you, and I don't want to live without you, so lets forget about tomorrow, Lets forget abo
Wanting to show my kindness, intelligence, beauty  But fear that my confidence will receive the labels of pride and conceit I'm just going to be honest Every inch of me is flawless Vulnerable, anxious
Camera, Camera on my phone. Filter away all my flaws, Surly I do lie, but beauty is key , Without  filters, We shine flawless like  gems, Now we see eye to lens,  Simple beauty,no trends.
I searchedfor youin crowds,in my dreams,in the stars,But I foundYouwere in my heart.
I have been told "Where there is a will, there is a way" When I grow old I want to see Christ walk my way   I have been blessed with many gifts Somehow I want to use them
i guess i knew i would shatter  if i let myself fall for you as hard as i did. but i did not expect microscopic shards of myself to fly through the atmosphere and land miles apart.
Life is a journey and happiness comes with exploration.
"Snap" goes the camera as she take another. "Snap, Snap" She isn't satisified. She goes again. Every image of her face, showing the same smile Same eyes and same nose, but as always the picture is never right.
Long walks on the beach Looking into your eyes 
So many things happening around me and it just amazes me how God just continues to keep his hedge of protection around me and to bless me.I sometimes wonder about things that happened to me in the past and how so any people have walked out of my
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Will I ever be a
It looked original, body so curvy, eye's so blue, gray, green, even something a little in between, you know what I mean?
As long as I can remember, I have tried to compose love like a chemical formula with me as the main component: mixing different elements of a relationship, always using the wrong variables, never reaching that perfection I was searching for.
I connect every star with an imaginary line But also link our fate together with a single red thread. Love forged upon theinvisible path I paved Falls perfectly into my own celestial vision.  
How does it feel to be trapped behind a screen? In a world without dimension where perception is key. We iron our hair and puff out our lips in hopes that they don’t see What’s real?
I'm not sure how to wear self confidence
It's odd that I do not need to add a mod-ification or filter To show the real me, the E-R-I-C-K  E stands for excellent, this poem shows the essence  R stands for rhymer who spits fire
A pimple on my cheek Who cares? A crack in between my teeth Who cares? A hair out of place Who cares? A few strech marks across my waist Who cares? I love my skin
Through an Instagram lens its often hard to see the bigger picture Every post is worth a thousand words And some of them are meant to injure
Break the lense
Where did what's right and what's beautiful become so intertwined? When did I becomed defined only by my jaw line? Why does #MasterCleanse and #LookingThin appear more than  #Eating and #LetLoose?
To strive and hold is what matters most The love we have sometimes hard to control We can fight and argue all day long But in the end we know whom we belong  
Life isn't what I thought, It's full of mystery... Too fast and short, too bad too good, Different people different manners, Too hot too cold, too lively too dull,
I tilt my head up, it reflects the light better. Followed by the caption, carefully typed letter by letter. Should I use Valencia? it makes me look tan. This will definately get me famous, every "like" is a fan.
I am everything I could ever ask When time flits away my inner beauty thrives Guiding me to the infinite fountains
I am me under these clothes behind those filters. I am me. No bright light to make my picture brighter. No filter to make me lighter. I am me. Who am I with all these unspoken words?
So who is the man in the mirror? The real one- you know? The one behind the filter hidden away, disquised because no matter how hard he tries... There is something different--
Hidden behind the screen
Just be who you are. No matter what anyone says to you, are you.
Sometimes, my teeth seem slightly rotten with a honey residue considering, weekends I forget to brush, Or how my hair waves in this condescending way when I clinch my fist together.
I am Broken.
I have been boxed and labeled, and am expected to reach a certain location, but I've been lost in the mail, 
The world is full of hate drenched in the cynical behavior that we come to know women are starving to achieve the level or perfecton that photo editors create children are bullied
oh, how the depths whisper sweetly thy name, as  sea foam outstretches and kisses the rain. and oh, how the moon cries for the hopeless  and the hills sigh so softly, helpless to thy pain.
To my descendants: When I arrived in this role I had been given, love was blossoming in many ways. People were just learning to love people for who they are, what they are.
Neglect–ed Ringed out with blood and stretch marks. Wrinkles written in between the crevices of my eyes. They sting and burn. Fighting, fighting, and falling. I kept falling. I failed.
Your the endless wonder . Your the mystery of the world. Your the what happens in the dark. Your the fool who found gold and left it behind. Your the dot dot dot of suspense.
I write on my wrists the lies that were told. I draw picture of  the love that was untold.  I imagined meanings  that never came true.  I wrote You.  I drew You. I imagined You.. 
I love my dimples I love bellowing laughter I love being loud.   I love violin I loe making punny jokes I love seeing smiles.   I love uniqueness Because I am not like you
Being told "Its whats on the inside that matters" never felt so true. Our apperance can be deciving, Looking fresh with eyebrows and nails done Yet inside is full of selfishness, jealousy, and insecurity.
Breathe... As life passes too quikly, the whistle blows, the crowd screems!   Silence... All you have is yourself in the end live for what you want not for what you have.
So sweet and kind People may not see it, but I’m not completely blind…   You fill people with joy With your beautiful smile…
I told you about my soul today and  I thought it was very funny because if you replace one Letter to becomes soil and I think that's wonderful.   What's wonderful? You ask. Well the idea
You told me You told me the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice. But now I realize that not everybody has the same taste. So your eyes partake of my identity and you spit me out of your mouth and exclaim
  All he asked me was not to cry
Hands Of him to invade me to intrude to be ill mannered and uncouth to me Hands Dating the clock so faithful so diligent so painless so fast so slow Hands
So I say goodbye to the daylight, To the sun I bid adieu,
There are times I scream out to the stars, Thinking of you and all these times, so hard.
You left. She stopped smiling. She stopped laughing.
Freedom is within you: Through a window, Dawn light trembles. Can you feel me in the ebony darkness? My voice carries on Hushed night air, Wends wayward wings To your dazzling soul
The sun is rising leaves are falling, the crisp, cold air has arrived I love the feeling, within my whole being, that you have awaken inside you are my sunshine, my moon, and my stars,

I have loved you before i knew, what love was ,  you have loved me in ways no one else does forever my life will be devoted to you  because without you , my world is so blue
The bustle of people, yeah classes are starting again.
You, you were right.  Maybe I'll tell you sometime. And you, you were right. Maybe I'll tell you sometime. Would you like to be my friend?  And you, you were right. Maybe I'll tell you sometime.
You! Yes you. Wait not you. Yes. No. Ah yes! You! Yes you staring at the screen. I want to reach you. I want to talk to you.
the Stars make me happy. the Way they’ve lived an eternity evolving, but not changing.
the infinite Stars keep Us company tonight
Life will knock you down. What lifts you up? Maybe it’s the way His eyes sparkle against the sunset.
People should aspire to be themselves Where did the masks get put on Where did this all start The root source will forever be unknown Why are we as humans continuing this tyranny All we have to do is 
my ink's gone dry lost. with all that's left of who I used to be   who was that girl? who is this girl? where did the rest of me go   it's as if what I was
Couldn't see, couldn't hear, darkness was everywhere Why did you leave? I needed you More now than ever I'm so lost without the two of you Remember when you would call me boo?
I apologize, sincerely, for all that I am I am sorry for being so rude, and never taking a stand
Where have you gone? you think youre hiding but your wrong your not insincere or fake or lying you are you, and you are trying Becuase when you dig and dig and dig, you wonder who you are at night

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? What atrosious, mandacious observations do you mentaly scream like a banshee,  giving yourself this decree. 
I feel like you look for messages engraved in the cliche i don't like it but it seems to work. this is straight forward. i miss my metaphors tired and hungry I can't help but wonder
You know I wrote a whole poem not more than two seconds ago what a shame I let it go i wish I could rewrite it
You are divinely created uniquley  de
Everyday, every minute I hide behind the curtain. I mask my eyes with glasses to hide the emotions. I paint the mask on my face to cover the spots. I put on clothes to hide my body
Snap ! Zoom, get centered more, then delete. Twenty to fifity shoots until we get the one that is unique. Taking photos for others to critique.
I don't have super long hair, or pearly white teeth I don't have rich parents and in my room, no, there is not a huge bed where I sleep I don't have a Bentley, or even a license for that matter
Him Something about him His laugh, his smile, something that's him This isn't like me
I would like to be alone
"You did this" I think this as I try to sleep my first night at my fourth foster home that year. I am ony six years old. As that night was not cold, my heart was chilling to my soul,
Blind Ambition Keeps me wishin' I had someone like You   Orange burst of passion Purple mist
HOOK: How would you feel if I went away? How would you feel I went today? Would you still love me? Would you remember me?   VERSE: This is a story about Trevor. He was 13 and lived with his mother.
Skyscrapers looming at a godly height Concrete approaching at the speed of light A blind sense of panic, the wind rushing by This I fear deep down inside.
With a swift brush of the breeze, you are beautiful.  Soaking in your everlasting scent, I can see you. The ability to taste your bountiful lips is euforic, in the sense of purity and love.
When the clouds roll in, thats when the fun begins Drops of silver falling from the sky, sit on the porch and watch the storm roll by Think of life and all its trials, think of hate and all my rivals
My mind is a mess I tell myself To take action    I know what I want I see it right there But I need to do something   I want to lock Myself in a white room
When young you're taught not to fly beyond the edges of the nest so you spend so much time just wondering what's outside? Buildings are made to contain us only giving us glimpses of what's outside
I tried to find myself inside you.
how is i that i lay here listening to sad songs and the pouring rain letting vodka slip down my throat into my veins  counting seconds between lightning and thunder... how is it that with this razor in my hand
You hide yourself from everyone else Because there's a monster inside. He can't be controlled by anyone, not even you But you talk a good talk and lie about the truth.
People can't live without food, water, shelter, clothing While other people can't live without material items As for me, I cannot live without you
Your laugh is a million fireflies, your heart is a sunny breeze, your dreams are like a telescope, and tears that dread a sea. Your love is a vapor of ones own bliss,
When I’m lonely in a world of my own, I often think of you. I imagine the way you hair never fell into the right place and how that was my absolute favorite thing about you.
It was rough, it was gentle. It was sweet, it was harsh. It was tight, it was loose. That is what it was like, to be with you. 
I find reasons to love you, I find reasons not to love you.
fear lurks in the back of my mindeve
I feel so utterly replaceable. I feel like feeling anything at all is dangerous. 
The words spilled out of me Like exhaust spews from An old worn-out car. “I do love you” Was all I said And yet I felt as if I just played some type-of Disturbed violin through my body.
I reach into the shadows and my hand touches your face, Every single line of yours my fingers pretend to trace, I wonder - could this torture last forever? My love, I'm seeking you in shadows,
i hear your voice and i subconciously smile and i feel your warm embrace around me as we softly giggle over the phone "did someone just call your name?" "no" "oh. maybe it was my heart. maybe it needs you"
i hear your voice and i subconciously smile and i feel your warm embrace around me as we softly giggle over the phone "did someone just call your name?" "no" "oh. maybe it was my heart. maybe it needs you"
You ask so much of me. To explain who I am... It's close to impossible.   There's not just one thing that says "This is me." Many things define The one being I am.  
While you were sleeping, I slipped away. I was told to never trust a flatterer; unfortunately an enchanter is who came along 
                                                        It was late at night
You hear a voice  You think it's someone else you realize it's not  you wish it was  you dream they'd appear tell you they miss you you're disappointed shocked
I feel like that. That pale greyish wisp of ash that crumbles beneath the slightest touch, That's been consumed by a ravenous fire that first caressed Then incinerated every fiber of it's being. I feel like that.
judging people is never the key so why do people do it? well ill tell you, they do it because they have problems at home or something is wrong with them they want to be
Listen, sister, for this talk unsettles me. Stop here. Because You are not the sum of things you have made. You are not the sum of others' judgements, opinions - no.
Not a day that goes by without you on my mind The smile you showed and the voices you make You were something else, something I can take My dearest boy, you're the one to blame!
   If there ever was enough to give, I would give it to you. If there ever was enough ways to show I would show, I woud show you my truth. My love for you is so alive it would never die. you take my breath away, you make my heart skip a beat.
i want you to see the scars on my skin the wounds youre responsible for i want you to witness my blood an my pain and my nights spent alone on the floor   i want you to watch as the sharp razor glides
Self Acceptance A Julius C. Lightfoot III Poem
I look at life as balanced, like there is no right or wrong But bringing up one's identity just plays a different song. Am I the hero, or am I the villain? Does anyone know for sure?
I love you from the bottom of my heart
You came without warning, and I thank you
Three line segments sat in space. Together, they kissed three invisible vertices.
The tip of that old Marlboro cigarette held between his sagging, wrinkly fingers burns out,
The insecurities of a girl fought everyday The lust for love  always in the way The world that we live in, can be so cruel, But lets look at the beauty there is too, The green of the earth,
The echo will be heard, Only from ear to ear
The distance from you is distracting Peace becomes faint Time speeds up Moving on transforms into impossibility Mere memories continue Single weeks seem like forever  Attention isn't the same 
You You and your eyes that capture me  A memory A picture  
Sew a quesiton mark to your deams imagine where you shall be. Maybe you are a tree staying, waiting, without motion in one place for a lifetime seeing changes around you
Take your money and bury it down
Imagine everyone being happy. The poor, the rich, the hobos, the CEOs. You can, and in your mind, you imagine them smiling. After all, smiling’s happiness. But you’ve smiled.
just because there are bigger problems in the world doesn't mean yours
Life of a bully oh how it must be to have people cower all over your feet Storming and raging, even the skies are afraid of who ever would come across you and your rage  
  Skipping daintily on his merry little toes The Pied Piper plays his tune. And laughing happily as he goes His eyes do glisten like the moon.   He beckons on with fiery force
You want change you say, and here you all are preaching it. Preaching it to please. Please who? Yourselves? Pu-lease.           Oh, oh, oh! I'll change lives.
However lonely Only is non-existent You are not yet an island You are not yet in silence Nor will you become a blank moon Keep your eyes hoisted above the frames Do wander tonight without a name
  If I could change one thing, it would be discrimination The only thing it brings its separation The world has no place for segregation We are brothers and sisters So why are we adversary?
the rain is falling
he was a tidal wave,
certainly you've felt life tug you, hug you, and even push you away.. and I'm certain you've seen life assert it's opinion to your dismay.. & by all means necessary, life has lead you to this point..
according to some legend, when one is unable to sleep at night,  it means someone is dreaming about them. now i dont know who you are or why youre dreaming of me but its 3 am.
For once in this life, I am plagued by the thing which has ruled mankind Since the beginning. I stop and look forward in this point in time, the distance of knowledge far beyond the reaches of the system--
I don't know if
im fighting hard to stay awake but all i can think about is the warmth underneeth these sheets lying hearts width apart  
im feeling these feelings you see that demand to be felt and their victem is me butterflies wings slicing through me like blades my heart beat a drum, never going to fade

I used to be here, Didn't we all. History shows, Powerful nations, Always fall. But we never worry, Never show fear.  Just shake our fists,  And drink a beer. No! Don't cry,
We've been broken up for six months both of us are in new relationships , and I woke up this morning to a next telling me you love me how can you love me and love someone elese?

i admire the crayons for no matter how you push or how hard the pressure they'll pick themselves up and cling to their other i admire the crayons for when in times of stress they melt together
You? How true Are you? Are you lost? In a faraway place Where you conceal Your true face Oh what color? Do you see Yes When you see me Do you see blue?
A Pilot, Engineer, World Activist, it goes on and on People get mixed up with a Job, Just to get payed, to become rich,  these things don't change your life. Perhaps they do keep a roof over your head,
The first time I saw you, you were sitting at a lunch table reading the first book of the Harry Potter series alone.
Sun is shinning  Sky is clear  I'm Sitting by the ocean wishing you were here  Fish jumping crabs walking But still I need you right here  
Blue reminds me of when I didn't know you, Of when I never heard the words "You arebeautiful"Blue reminds meof when the world was movingBut I was standing still It reminds me of wanting to be alone
I’ll try         And be as loyal as a dog         By your side for everything         There to pick up the pieces after you shatter I’ll try         To stay silent         When I wish to speak
Can you see from my clothes,    all the things I know.   Adorned from head to toe in mediocrity.   I use to feel the need to exceed normality.   
The ability to change the world is greater than I can imagine What would I change is a great question Would it be to creat world peace, or take away crime? Or would it be more complex, like slowing down time?
If Time passes like the wind is it really that Important? If people die every day do their lives even mean a thing? Why are we even here if we will just pass away someday? Why are we existing
People are trying to be the next big thing, trying to out do the each other like we are in a race, conforming to what we think the world wants,
Quarters, nickels, and dimes can change hands every day. Each face different, but to a child, they only see them as gray. Open your hearts like a target register. And see the world like a child
You and I are different  You and I are the same You and I are pieces of the same game You and I are black 
one day I was walking somewhere new singing an unfamiliar tune in a voice that was not my own. the sand uncomfortable in my shoes and the wind skipping across my skin chilling me through
You are the backspaced words my tongue retracts The three o clock messages that shouldn't make sense You are the intertwined fingers that feel like there are still spaces there
You were my oversight and it wasnt intentional not on purpose.
I wonder what it is... Your smile Your humor  or the fact your always there. I don't believe in love. But I believe in you.
I love the way these words sweetly caress my mind at night,   "I love you"   Like a gentle breeze that flips my hair Or the golden rays of sun which warm my soft lips
I could tell you who I am  but do you have the time I could go on for hours  telling you who I am My love can not be bought or sold It can only be given freely to whom I choose
Dr. Seuss was right when he said "today you are you, and that is truer than true there is no one alive who is youer than YOU"
Would you say "I love you" If the sun didn't shine? If the wind didn't blow, And you stayed silent, How would I know?   Would you love me If teeth grew from my forehead,
Its not always understood that maybe your cultural views and religon, tend to get in the way of many things.
You move on to greener pastures.
Danbury is my home, my house, and my hearth. It is the bustling Main Street and the quiet back roads. It is the big lake full of waterweeds and the seagulls that fight with the geese on the shore.
Soft dreams ignited these ashes settling down Once doused in a fading hope for their lives away Beyond from where limbs and lives were bound. They were lost to the world on knees of final pray
  Flow in the wind like a flower in the Spring, Your delicate petals swirl in the midst.
Can't you see that times have changed?People move on but you're still the same?Everyones got their own lives nowDo you even know where you're going? TIMES HAVE CHANGED THE WORLD
I made it!Everything that I've been through in life, i found away to almost making it out, after the late nights crying myself to sleep seeing my mom trying to figure out away that we can eat.
I saw a picture of you in the mirrorI realize I've become what I fearAmeliorate me, and then you walked awayTie my mouth shut - there's nothing left to say
When I look at the moon, I think of you.
Why is it that whenever,
Decoration across my body. Just one at a time,
You told me once, "Don't let them weigh you down You can do anything."   That was years ago, years before it happened And you vanished like vapor, right before my eyes  
Give me strength To achieve. Inspire. Even when you dissapoint. Pressed flowers. Blank canvases. Remembrance. Questions All just say I miss you.  
fades like the memories of our love, drawn on the sand on the beach that night ,washed in the memories of my tears that night 2 year on
There are times you're so simply Unapologetically you! Killer times, when jaws drop
The same thoughts are on repeat every single day. Should I end it now? Should I wait for nature to take its course? It'll be easier? I'll be committing a sin. Life isn't supposed to easy.
I think of endless days and short nights I think of powerful blades and deep slashes I think of everything and nothing but all that comes out is air and I don't know how or why but I thought of you
The sun shines brighter on the other side Where children can run and play At the park and by the slide
I spend my life wishing
  As you bully her,
I try and I try to be perfect for you.
Roses are red Violets are blue My heart will always Belong to you No matter what happens I will always love you And baby you will always, No matter if we are far apart,

You're teaching me things every day. I learn more about you: The things you like, And the things you don't like. It's all very interesting. You're a very unique and special person to me.
Aren’t You Aren’t you suppose to help me do better Aren’t you suppose to stop what they do to me Aren’t you suppose to stop me from drowning in my own self-destruction   You Watched
Your touch was spiraling. Your warmth was craved.

A kiss is just a kiss  Until you find the one you love, A hug is just a hug Until you find the one you're always thinking of. A dream is just a dream Until it comes true, Love was just a word
Cold breeze bugging me, But the warmth from your skin Is tugging at my broken heart from never being held But you held me, oh, you held me   Little asks of where should we And heat upon my cheeks
Unfit I was, high school started. Scared of words, I suffered Months of hunger, I chose Not small enough, I continued. At a time where anorexia played a factor, Words from others became a fear.
Work, sweat and sometimes cry, deadlines are coming and the only thing not stopping is time. Submit your work and close your eyes.   Take a deep breath and feel like you made it.
I know what you think of me, I don't care. You see who I am, you don't know. She really cares about me, she can't feel. He feels the way I feel, He doesn't hear.
Why do I write in pencil? I'm afraid of permenant feelings. Why is your name in Sharpie? Because you're already permenant, darling.
if and only do not mix, but me and you do. what and if don't belong together, but me and you do. life isn't always perfect, but me and you are. everyone isn't always loved, but me and you are.

Be yourself, be who you want to be, need to be, love to be. its whats inside of you growing, needing to sprout, be alive, come alive and show everybody who you really are.
Someone said I can't do this. I will never be that I felt alone and out of place Like I only had myself left.Don't let anyone try to disparage your knowledge of knowing anything.

Feet on ground Head in the sky Making plans for the future When I am barely getting by Just happy to be smiling So lucky to be alive Whether money grows on trees Or I am begging on my knees
You were born into this world as nothing but you, The potential was endless, if only you knew.   Question has been there, a childhood friend,
Day in and day out. Everything's the same. I can't stand it when you call out my name. Day in and day out. You spend nine days on a topic I swear, I'll get a gun and learn how to cock it.
If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart, absent thee from felicity awhile, and in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain, to tell my story. If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart,

There’s a part of me that loves. There’s a part of me that hates. There’s a part of me that rages. There’s a part of me that balances it all out.   Love and hate are balanced no more.
We were like a bright and sunny day, But a dark cloud hovered and you became gray. Once sitting and laughing until we cried, Now something happened, our flower died. I wondered if things were better would we still be okay?
There are many things I’d love to say or do but I know I have to be strong I can’t let those thoughts and actions get ahold of me I need to fight them If I were to do either I wouldn’t be here right now

What stops us from going after our dreams, desires, and hopes? Is it the fear of disapproval, judgment, or fearing that you yourself are wrong? Why is it that we live our lives in fear?

I smile because you asked me to; Because you took these lips, always upside down, gave them a tweak and turned them right side around. Because I’m no longer alone; I have no need to cry.

You were 6th period laughter. You were after school snacks. You were Friday night football games. You were Saturday night video games. You were Sunday morning yawns, You were Fourth of July fire crackers..
Fighting, but i'm weak with both hands. A vacation, eyes detect no beach, feet feel no sand. Double left handed, clubsy but talented. Can't get a job, did once but got fired because I couldn't manage the way my manager managed things.

I watch from afar, And listen in silence. The sound of your guitar, It makes my heart melt.   But you’ll never fall. Not for a girl like me.

I’d be leaning against a thick tree, staring off into the green with a film of sweat across my lip and the smell of dinner slipping across the field mixed with the settling of the freshly-mowed grass.

When I first met you, flowers started blooming in my darkest spots. All because of you, I know I have a light And it shines for you alone. And I thank you For your time and your kindness.
The glow you left After you left my room Lingered on like The smell of a perfume.
Everyone misses you, We all wish you were here; Everyone wants you back, We all want you near. It's not only me, My friends miss you too; You made a big impact... Everyone loved you.

“Life sucks. Then you die.” Said a father to his son The father was bored at the son’s baseball game The father never came to another one Only one vacation to the shore
Heart feels so overwhelmed I look into your eyes And see the unexplainable Twists and turns of unexpected Happiness and sorrow All rolled into one smiling face
What are the chances on being happy? Those who live were held by a mother only long enough to become acquainted with a warm embrace. Others who live will have no warm embrace at all, for their mothers have withered away long ago.
Hush little baby don’t say a word Or daddy’s gonna shoot you like a mocking bird If that little wound don’t hurt like a bi*ch Daddy’s gonna abandon you on a roadside ditch
Broken street I’m forced to travel as ice tickles porcelain cheek. Crystal leaves forbidden trail now, my traitor heart still beats for thee.
I want to crochet you a blanket of kisses to keep you warm these chilly winter nights.
Darkness falls and all are sleeping All but one At midnight a door opens to the night Two bright eyes peer out Out of the slumbering house leaps a young girl eager to start the dance
You and your thoughts are something along the lines of the high from the smell of fresh paper. You're a brilliantly scathing memoir.
There is a reason for everything I do And that reason? If only you knew Every step Every word Has purpose! To be heard.
