Thoughts race time goes by minutes drag she wonders why darker and darker her mind goes what is the outcome? nobody knows all she sees behind hazel eyes
Incompetent minds with unyielding thoughts she keeps to herself and guards her soul they dont understand they only observe she stays in pain but keeps her control
I would kill for a pill that would make me feel, So happy inside, Fill me with pride and confidence, If someone offered it to me, I'd happily agree to take it with me,
Tired of winters And swollen rivers Chests heaving People leaving Want to sleep Maybe for weeks Need to sleep Maybe for weeks
on cloudy days she sits alone
he was a tidal wave,
I'm tired of trying
Dad, a three letter word for father. You know, it takes a man, a an to be a father. You say you ere just a kid, but so was she.So was mom.
Waking up every morning to the same tune Thinking about leaving this place from morn till noon Stumbling out of bed thinking of who to impress
Stranger in a crowded room Fate continues to weave at the loom Your entire life mapped in one tapestry And you stand alone, helplessly You begin to wonder,
The people squirming Through each other Sprinting Pacing Chuckling Weeping Briefcases in hand Lunging For the office Laptops Cellphones Watches Files
Lonely face while he walks the streetWater from my eyes like sea salt-laden galesThe last they heard from him was a tweetAll she wanted was to hear a taleThe Moon was bright as a lamp-post
The "R" word If I could change one thing in this world, It would be how people use "retard"
' 'she is nothing but a slut' ' face pale lips Glossy ' 'she is nothing but a freak' ' pale blue eyes chocolate lockes ' 'her makeup looks terrible' '
i'm scared of getting close how could anyone handle someone so deranged it really blows having everything hidden because eventually someone will want to know the truth
i do not like to feel the emotions take over leaving me broken and vulnerable it's hard to deal feeling hopeless feeling alone that's why i've cornere myself off in this fortress
Help me- I'm broken Help me- I'm lost
My greatest fear was to drown. To have my lungs full of water Simultaneously, living and dying Until I realized, I'm drowning myself. Sorrow after sorrow take over my body
You would never have thought that what I've done would
It's kind of like you're free falling with no parachute Your body feels weightless and you're floating You feel the wind rushing as you're diving towards earth But at the same time, time sort of stops
Do not say goodbye, please hear me out first; I love you, and know that I’m on your side You say it’s done and it couldn’t get worse While you reflect on the tears you have cried.
A familiar numbness creeps over my soul. I feel nothing. But at the same time, I feel everything. I feel the weight of guilt, the pain of losing a friend,
Hillary the Ohpeliac, The girl with a beautiful soul She’s into self-destruction, I’m fascinated by this role. She looks at skinny as a flaw I can’t even see why Beauty comes in all forms
How can someone get to the point in their life where death deems so right? When you wake up Every single day Wishing for an end to it all. And more specifically,
I used to look down a lot My head full of melancholic thoughts And myself so weighed down I could not stand up. In fact I was falling, deeper and deeper into a depression
Life's Masquerade By: Linda Oostendorp
I am half-read books and highlighted words inside of them.
Walking the halls Is harder than you think Losing friends Can happen in a blink Having stress And feeling depressed Are all the things I'm trying to express
I thought you were something special, Not like any other boy, But I guess I thought wrong. I thought I had finally found someone who liked me for me; Someone who wasn't just there to admire my body,
135 pounds?! There's no such thing as having an eating disorder when you're so fat Eating disorders are for the skinny people For my friend, who is 105 pounds and eats whatever she wants
She dances! She twirls! This amazing wind up girl! Come one! Come all! To see the painted smile doll! Put your order in today! We’ll send her, no delay! The price is really not that high!
Sarah She was born into an orphanage Her reading disability is awful Her emotionally traumatized brain can't help it Her life spent without being wanted Justin Wishes he didn't have parents.
Chains Chains clinking metal frozen wrists bound reaching for freedom no key to set me free or strength to uncuff
Forever engaged to silence getting through day by day smiling and laughing pretending your okay "Im fine" or my favorite "I already ate" she pretended to happy but all that was fake
The butterflies swarm inside my head,My mind decides to tell them everything I've said.Fluttering, moving, spacing out,They come from all directions to have no doubts.Peaking and peering inside my mind,
I'm trapped Inside my body. I don't belong Here. Nobody wants me. Here Nobody understands me. Here I need an escape from. Here I'm trapped inside my body.
There she goes, falling Down into the unconquerable abyss Lost inside herself There’s no escaping The terrible monsters that live in her soul They lurk in the looming blackness
Life is precious, fragile, and an amazing experience. Memories last forever. The good, the bad, every important memory, can never be forgotten Rolling around outside,
Again, I begin, to feel like I'm going through life in no particular direction, to feel like instead of being one in million, that I'm one in the millions, I don't feel like an individual,
i was thinking about how low people can get and how low people can feel so that they believe they are alone but are really surrounded by people who see them
It’s you You that I am scared of You chose me as your target all because of the way i look Or maybe it’s because I’m better than you Are you mad at the fact that I don’t have to
You stand up there, teaching us this crap How will it apply and when will I use that can’t I pick my own classes? Go to class when I want Whys the government control us, I wish I could change that
Breaking Branches Falling Leaves Seasons Change Caring Need Rolled down Sleeves Icy eyes Hurting Heart Who Survives?
A shiny lock Numbers written around the edge in a circle I watch as it turns Back and forth The numbers blend together Amd I get confused and lost No longer sure how to unlock it
A dream is supposed to be love and keen but a dream deferred can prevent even the craziest dream Will you let color, age or sex defer your dream? or will you trust, believe, love and achieve,
When we walked the face of Earth, Wasn’t the world a happy one? A collection of blessings made up our very lives, And in the blinks of weary eyes, We were gone. Now as I peer into the past
Without a raise of the hand, I stood Knowing that I could be stifled, I know I did not care. Without a raise of the hand, I spoke Meaning no disrespect, but respect was the only matter on my mind.
I’ve dealt with a lot. I’ve been bullied, I’ve been heart broken, I’ve been ignored, I’ve been abandoned, I’ve been invisible, I’ve been a target. They tell me it’s just the
Kids are steadily drooping out of school Selling drug, hang in gangs becuase they think it's kind of cool The list of the problems that are wrong with America Will have these kids rolling off into hysteria
Understand, this is not right.Listen, hear me warn you.This is not a fair fight.You will fail, win, lose.
My close friend Luis decided to drive around in his motorcycle. Luis was innocent, he just wanted to drive around... So happy to be driving, the wind hitting his face, ignoring everyone.
Time ticks slowly, almost like my heart with out you Just like the Moon, has to be away from the Sun, I have to be away from you. Every once in awhile you visit me in my dreams
My mind is depraved. A sarcastic fringehead, erasing my thoughts faster than they can swim. Breathing in water, my lungs fill with salted froth. I bite my tongue and an acrid brine pervades the void.
Will it come to pass me by or will it never come at all Will it come with my sorrows or will it come with my family's sorrows I ask myself this everyday for you never know when it'll be your last
That light that you see It isn't me. My light is broken there is no way for it to be repaired.
I live beneath you. I wade in the shallow end of your steps. I don’t understand you, Far as I may follow. I know you don’t see me, You don’t know who I am. You’re eyes show nothing, hide nothing.
I scream behind my closed door, but they can't hear me. The words don't ever actually escape my lips, because I'm afraid of what I might say. My mind is the one screaming, it just wants to be free.
Numbness fills my mind, My heart seems still, Never knew life was so unkind. The wind blows, The day ends, But still my pain grows. My face it smiles, My eyes are clear,
My hand, yes it hurts but my mind hurts more. Why do I write you ask? Because I can't go back to how I was before. I can't afford to be that girl Who feels the need to end it all.
The air smothered in smog The birds don't sing like they used to. Then again, it's not surprising, must have the Memphis blues. The echoing screams in the streets Children crying in the background
They don't understand. The more they put me down , the more I feel like hurting myself.
If this is living, I'm not sure if I want to live. If only I could move.. just get away, but I can only go where I am taken to. No one seems to like me and they seem to think
Behind her tears There is anger and sorrow.Behind her fake smilethere is lies and fear. She seems to be all alone,No group to accept her.Everyday she sits alone,No one there to talk to.
It all started one day she got threatened, got made to do something she didn’t want to do thought it would get better, but no, it stayed the same
LIfe, How awkward it can be. Concerned looks, I feel so uncomfrotable. HIding in my skin, I find the real person I am. And to be honest... The real me scares me.
She is strong and fearless harboring a secret. She has shut them out. She is lost; lost as quickly as lives disappeared. Her existence is what left her with nothing. A shadow of her former self. Seeking the night he finds her once again with
You must love to watch me crybecause since the beginningthat’s all you have caused me,tears and breathless sobsand i sit here as these big dropsof sadness and despaircrash like waves onto my face
As sons and daughter of the most high God We have standards to uphold, as we are representing Zion And as we live in a dark and hateful world
You're so sad, your tears illuminate a dreariness that words can't describe, you're so angry, the wrath of your fury is something you can't hide.
Its like swallowing flint To be here. Among the talented people The children of broken homes Motor homes And hill-top homes. From the highest of life To the lowest of lows Poets, word weavers,
The sands of time continue to fall. Hopelessness binds. Constricts hands, feet and heart. Desire for the should haves. As lost in the past miseries. Mistakes made. Lessons learned?
His heart is fragile; his body is vagile, he wants to persevere but he feels he has no support near, he walks the days alone, he needs to be put in a hone, sharpen his senses;
Everything and everyone move forward farther away from me who is stationary never changing never moving forward if i could go forward everything would change for better or worse
Every morning she paints on her face. She removes the bags from under her eyes, and hides the ones lying inside. She tries her best to cover the stains, tries her best with the ones in her brain.
In my eyes I am a burden I am arrogant I am argumentative I am over-emotional I am not living up to their expectations I am imperfect In my eyes
I was the oldest, So I should’ve died first, But now you’re buried in the ground, At only twenty-one years young, They say you were hung, And now I’m listening to sad songs, Did you hate us all that much,
I never looked back the day I left A thing I always seem to neglect Something my mother noted Whether I was going to school for the first time Or for Basic Training Or going to Iraq
Happiness Is a bunny Of fluffy cotton That grows Like water And strives Like a flower Jealousy Is the death Of a relationship that Is hurting from Lack in trust
This place I am, it is horribly dark. Yet, here I will stay. I am a flightless lark. Motionless I’ll lay. Please, take me away. I need this to stop, For these yearnings to drop.
I lie in bed awake at night Empty inside Wanting to grab onto something But not knowing what
Closed doors with listening walls, A storm thunders from your face, Such a big disgrace. Nothing changes, but everything falls. I wish my life was like a wall.
i think the hardest part is quit being mad at myself. I hate what I am. I want to change but i feel like i dont know where to start and i feel as if i will just regress and go back to how i am.
Fading into the background Washed out by greatest Suddenly hearing no sounds No cheers as I approach that line I made it right! I finished Where is my accolade? My recognition!
the dark heavy sinking feeling spins and twirls inside of me. it encases my insides, coating everything within its reach. it swells inside me and I can feel it grow and pound against the inside of my body, restless to get out.
