What's the most important part of the outfit? For some it is the shoe, the shirts, the hair But for me, it won't simply be found anywhere. You can't buy it in a store, Nor have it tailored.
I have no one No one has me I am all alone Stuck in a tree The leaves are changing The birds are singing In comes new weather That fall is bringing I have no one No one has me
Poetry is my escape. Kind of like my outlet from the world. Sometimes when I can’t express the way I’m feeling. I connect with poetry, to release the issues that have been bothering me.
So many people going away. So many people going separate ways. Long friends, having to make amends. Great memories; Now having to say goodbye. Trying to stay strong and not cry.
The house, dark--locked doors behind which secrets floated. My emotions were like poison to me and all others. Weak, debased, I turned to a place where no one judged;
It's a layer of defense Soft and Smooth It crackles , it can breaks if you have a wound.
Rain, Trickles down my window pane, Reminding me that it's okay, To cry sometimes. Your brave face cracks like thunder, Leaving you to wonder, If it's okay to let it melt away,
I gave up on life too soon And cried when I couldn’t go back. Poetry has helped me go back.

I’ve spent countless hours of my life thinking and brooding, Considering the complexities of my past relations. And it is during these times, with my emotions moving, Which cause more oft than not unsightly ruminations.
This day in particular Was really quite gray The guy next to me sighed Hey, you okay? I replied that I was fine I gesured him to go away Yet, he wiped the tears from my eyes
Does anyone else feel like they are useless? Did anyone else think they could be better? Does anyone else hate themsleves more than their enemies could hate you? Did anyone else think they were loved this whole time?

A glance too long in the wrong direction. Addiction seeps into my core. Where is my fix? Your Mind much too far from mine,

She folds her emotions up Sticks them in the bottom drawer And puts something else on To wear out in public all day But when she gets home She unfolds her emotions
The rocks beneath the earth that shelters the lava away. The gravity that holds us inside of this earth day by day. The people that try to help me even if I push them away.
How can I unlike you? Unlove you. Unlearn you. I want to forget you. Unburden myself from you. And just live my life. But I feel like you’re a leech at my neck. And I’m drained.
There's something I need to tell you, My story is short enough to expose. I am no saint,
I'm sorry You cared so much And I thought I did too Now I miss your sweet touch Though I was the one who left you You weren't perfect But nor am I

I am erratic. A giddy, round-eyed, five-year old. A rocker who has too much soul. Who cried when the wind blows the wrong way. Who giggles incessantly at the break of day.

I stood at the edge of the Heaven with my angel wings spread wide And as I looked down upon Earth I wondered how I died. I don't remember who I was, who I wanted to be or who I am now,

The music speaks volume crying out to live it all. It begs and pleads with me. Insisting I open my quiet heart. With every rhythm, every beat my heart expands, it opens.
My love for you will never cease, a blessing or a curse may be. My withered heart will forever dream despite the havoc memories wreak. Pain is fading as the nights retreat,
Be patient good things come to those who wait Rushing speeds up negative vibes pushes you away No holding back Believe that's why my last relationship escaped No excuses but we rushed despite the years

When is the time to show emotion. When is the time to hold everything inside? Leaders are suppose to set the example. When so many have been killed and wounded. Is it alright to cry?
Funny story about opinions, they're not always right.
Breathe in, breathe out. A rhythm to sleep's sweet song, a dance that has no moves. His body, my warmth. His embrace for which I long, frustrations of the day, all at once, I lose.
Being sick to me, iswaking up due to that small subtle crease in the bed causing

Look at this mess that I have truly made I thought of you and then my heart decayed For if I see that you can truly be All mine you'll have a happy heart to keep.
I'll say it all throughout my emotions
“How do you feel?” are words so powerful yet impossible to answer.
It feels like I'm blind and cant see, like I'm stranded in the middle of the sea, like I'm submerged under water and can't breathe, like my sarrows are an obvious fact that no one will believe.
I am alone at the sea. Bound by the wind. I only go where it flows. I've only been where it's been. I am transferred to the desert. Sit on top of sandy dunes. The sun scorches my skin.
Seeing the sunrise peak from behind the city skyline The mirror image in the soft waves below Feeling the the sun's warmth brush against the back of my neck During a beautiful winter day
Offered all of what I had. Love never overpowered or overturned.
Why is it that the common expression is “Butterflies in the stomach” When referring to a feeling of apprehension Of both good and bad varieties?
Tell Me Again
Sometimes I wish for a mental shield of armor to outfit my mind's body:
"Just be yourself." I've heard that line a thousand times Which self? The one that gets me admiration and respect, or the one who swings between lows and elation,
A stab in the heart from the blade you called love You said sweet things to my face then turn around and switched up Whats real & whats fake? In this time I couldn't tell
One love, oops, too late.

Others talk, whisper, and even push me for the way I look, act, and dress I just shake it off and act like my life isn't a big mess My mom and dad fight almost every night
I'm looking up at the sky, thinking about our memories-- And all the good times, and the bad; I remember... When I really blew it hard to the core, beyond recover After that I never saw you ever again.
You think you know me But are you inside me? Do you see the world from my point of view? Think my thoughts, feel my feelings?
I am in need of something better.
Somewhere in this crawl space that we call a brain,

Sometimes I'm always down, Sometimes I'm always looking at the ground, Sometimes I cash in on my bad luck, Sometimes it's me lightning has struck, Sometimes I always keep my head high,
Make me a fantasy out of all of the stars, just how deep do they pierce the skin?
Happiness and Joy errupt like a geyser at Yellow Stone,
Tears always seem to threaten me,
Silence again and Watch and see.
Click, switch – laughter silly girl, full of joy Click, switch – anger holes in walls, bruised fingers Click, switch – pain curled in a ball, bleeding at the wrist Click, switch – sadness

You wonder if it's all in your head. Why can't you run awayor cry for help? Once again, you are driven against the cold cement. You become paralyzed. Unable to move
As time goes on, the more I wonder how much it was true Did you love me as much as I still love you? Does your heart ache while you lie awake in the dark Thinking of my hand wrapped gently around your arm

I have a lot of things to say. I view these things as important. Are they important to others? No, they are not. The things I want to say do not interest people, so I attempt to believe these things are not important.
We all drink the world in misery as shuffled songs pass through cheap headphones
I need to prepare. I have to get ready. I have got to get the part perfect. I am here. I am alone. I am nervous I should not be nervous. I have to calm down. I know I can do this.
Music is my life Music makes me feel good Music takes away my pain Music helps me redirect my emotions Music helps me through the hard times Music is there when i have no one Music is my life
Fly away, fly away my pretty little bird Why won't you fly away? Your wings are torn, batered, and broke, why won't you fly away, way Why wont you fly away?
It's easier to be alone where you know no one can touch you. It's easier to be alone because you don't have to care for anyone. It's easier to be alone because you know you can't hurt anyone.
I don't know what I'm doing here.
I am not going to give a sob story I am not going to give a glory story I do not have any horror stories to give But if you look into my heart you will see the only story I live You will see who I am
The pounding in my head won’t go away The rush, the high, flying None of it will go away The rush, the rush, it’s supposed to end The night over, the day breaking --but fuck that why end it early?
Abandoned, left alone Sullen, with a heavy heart Smiling in the play of life is just a part
I could wipe off 90% of that so called beauty with a kleenex... I see that your outershell is gorgeous Underneath that.. It's pure ugly No. Not your face. Your insides. Your guts. your soul.

Free spirit is my trait I value the most.
I like you but I don’t want you in my head. Im not used to being controlled, Im used to being in control.
I always feel like crumbling As gravity pulls me down, But when the music kills the sounds I find myself lost in a sea of harmony All the sorrow and anger I've felt Gets lost stolen and secure
Long sleeves in mid summer. Always trying to trick the others. Covering up what The Cat has done, man many people are dumb. Walkin around in a daze. Putting fake smiles on your face,
The guard is up No one can get in No one can see what I feel I don't want to see your face with pity clear upon it. I built this guard many years ago When you shattered my heart
I’m dying on the inside And no one knows. My heart Beating a useless tone, My flaws laid out in front of me, As if all things will end eventually. Why do I bother? No one can hear,
I hide behind the Curtain but People can still see if they look hard They will find me I hide behind the Curtain When I want them to know What is bothering me What hurts now

Come One! Come All! There's much to see. Leave behind your reality! See the acts! See the shows! Experience emotions nobody else knows. Come in! Sit down! Get your mind ready.
I’d change the homophobia, the fear and the hate, The suppression of expression we face each day, The way they look at us as though we’re not quite right,
If I told you that I'm emotionally sensitive, you wouldn't have a clue as to what I'm talking about. I wouldn't have had a clue as to what I'm talking about until June of 2014,
Feel the vibe flowing through my veins Opening a never-ending wealth of spiritual domain So mentally taxing I can't help but wonder what will remain

There comes a time,
With your eyes like the sea and your heart crashing waves you blend flawlessly with every perfection surrounding i would do anything to keep from losing you, out there among the salty breeze.
When I say “I love you”, I mean it I know it’s right
How many times have I fallen, Only to fall apon the floor. How many times have I given my heart, Only to have someone slam the door. My heart now covered in scars, Has grown tougher then is has ever been.
Close your eyes, Close your eyes and breathe. This can’t be me, This isn’t happening to me. But it is. And you can’t help it, But what did you do? Why you? The weight is over bearing,
AND ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS ARE YOU OKAY OR DO YOU MERELY SAY YOU ARE TO AVOID WEIRD GLANCES AND LONG AWKWARD TALKS ABOUT FEELINGS THAT DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING EXCEPT ENSURE THAT YOU WILL NEVER TALK TO ANYONE AGAIN ARE YOU OKAY OR DO Y

A Light To Share: (A poem by me)
The pattern of the clocks...each tick cuts through empty thoughts.Blood pumps through little veinsThat lay neatly upon solid bone.Hours at a time
I'm not as bad as you think I'm not a problem child I sit in my room And I use the internet I'm not out partying I'm not out drinking I'm not shooting up Or popping pills
Headphones always covering my ears Blocking out the sound No one can see my feelings I am a stone No one knows what was taken from me No one knows my reactions I do everything calmly
Look in through the window and what do I see? The whole world that will stare back at me... The moment I walk into the street I debait on the way I should carry my feet.
I'm always getting hurt No matter who it is; My brother, My sister, My father, My mother.... I don't know what I did to deserve this Always getting the worst of someone's anger
When ever I miss her I start to daze off,
Emotions share Many Similarites With water, both are Vital
Up and down and up, up, upRunning around until I'm shut upScreaming and fightingThere is no endUntil I'm shipped awayThat's when the anger blew away
I want you to be mine
We have forgotten the most profound voices, The roots to our own humanity. Anger, The lava vein of an erupting volcano, Pulsates because the vain whistles in the same high pitch.
Note: read the words in the tear right before the last line.
A double edged sword one side love one side hate living through a twisted fate one side life one side death struggling for one last breath one side forgives
If only I had a boat, so I wouldn't drown in my thoughts, and I could sail away.
Put on a Mask, No one will notice, It’s not like they would care Put on a Mask, It is okay to hide, Your feelings you mustn’t share Put on a Mask, Everything is fine,
Many poet's inspiration is sadness. Many poets' inspiration is depression. Many poets' inspiration is loneliness. This poet's inspiration is You. You came to me out of the blue.
It is wet and rancorous and my new leather shoes would feel the worst of it long before I got to class. I stopped, before exiting, to appreciate the mighty storm – and open my umbrella.
I remember the first time I saw you
And if it's
Day in and day out Your name pops into my head Memories of your touch, smell, and taste Haunt me at night Wishing and hoping you'd come back That you's realize that I still love you
Sometimes in life you have to realize that life is like falling rose
A tender gaze and I catch my breath. You don't know what you mean to me. All these feelings I try to hide behind a veil of normalcy - the pain and anger love and need
Sometimes I want someone to hold me with no reason to just because you want to love me
Don't let go of me I'm like a canoe in this raging sea I'm trying to make it in this world But I just keep on getting hurled No one seems to understand They make me feel so bland

Happy, sad, angry, hopeful… These are emotions behind my mask. Happy, patient, brave, smart, athletic… These are the characteristics visible to the public on my special mask
You’re looking out your window tonight So many things running through your mind You feel like you’ve lost who you are You want to find your way back to the start But you can’t, oh no, you can’t
I watch my life slip away,
Am I not good enough for them?Is who I am not who they want me to be?They want me to be this plastic, perfect figure that I don’t seeAnd they need to know, they need to know
I’ve seen apart of me I didn’t recognize. Through my eyes I saw how my reactions to your actions, made me low, low point on the scale, I’ve inhale, what you’ve exhaled to me.
sitting in the broken land. surrounded by dead memories of lost friends. family and friends are all dead, the ties to my history have no thread. i lay motionless, cry towards beauty and sonnetts to the grave,
In this torturous classroom I sit in row 5, seat 3 and to my right in row 4, seat 3 sits the most beautiful boy I've ever laid eyes on. Every time we make eye contact I feel a rush of warmth
Sometimes I feel like we are all M&Ms
This body is not an apology This blacked out mirror This blacked out skin This skin like shadows This shadow makes noise This "bitch don't make noise"
I ask myself why I'm angry why the hate why the sudden anger all these years why do I bring it out my bad side the bad side lurking in the shadows in my head telling me to do you wrong
Life, too often, is rushed. No time to waste, no time to relax No time to even say good morning " Tick-Tock " says the clock! Everyone's gotta be somewhere Rush, rush, rush Rush to school
The fact that evil is stronger than good is evil itself. Why must good be weaker than evil? Why must death me faster than creating life? Why must bullies be stronger than nerds?
It seems these days the only way to be considered for anything is to be a battered, broken, shell of a person. The scholarships, the colleges, they want survivors They want the best storyBut what about me?
I move through the halls with barely a glance. People won't talk to me, won't give me a chance. They hardly notice if my appearance I enhance. I am not a ghost. I spend most of the day inside my head,
In 2023, a ship called Mars One will depart from the surface of the earth and never return. It will fly forty million miles to a place where human kind has never set its heavy foot.
Have you ever felt like you're in the shadows waiting for your time to shine? Have you ever felt like you're tumbling over, caught on the borderline?
All my life I told you tales about monsters The beasts underneath my bed Always telling you they wanted to kidnap me When in fact they wanted me dead
Open and close, open and close The same action goes on I breathe out cool air Your dearest desires And appalling items Stored in this wonderful box Curiousity and Happiness,
The voices get so loud
She called upon me to aid her, to stop the crying. Her crying is a marathon runner who can never reach the finish line. I’m no savior, but I’m the only one left to care.
My skin burns where your hands once were like acid on light flesh. I've taken four showers today to try to wash away the pain but your handprint stays on my porcelain skin.
When the skyline comes into view, I feel it. When I crane my neck and squint my eyes to see the very top of the Sears turned Willis Tower, I feel it. That sense of longing and that sense
Ducks are ducks trees are trees what is not here is bothering me Quacks are quacks seas are nothing but simple seas this poem is really bothering me what is this really?
Prisoner of Words Unsaid For so long For so long I've been a prisoner A life sentenced prisoner for a crime they committed for me Like Alicia Keys "I'm a prisoner of words unsaid
I never truly understood the stories Where the girl would spend weeks pining after some guy "Way out of her league" Who didn't even know her name After she saw him with another woman
I love you more than words can say.
I think about how we used to be Then I get stuck in my misery I still remember the way you used to look at me & how all those feelings came free But now things will never be the same
People say rain is the crying of God, but I say different I say the rain is the crying of humanity, The emotions that are stored, but never released,
I wrote you a book of what's in store. on how I have always had open my front door. For you to walk in and stay with me. So we all could be one big, happy family. But you walked out and left us alone.
I never thought I'd hate something as much as you You take away the good people from the world You make them want you more then anything or anyone else Those with hard enough lives you make worse

Why does it hurt so much when you were never truly mine? Why did it feel like she stole you from me when you were never mine? Why does it feel like she crushed my heart and threw when you were never mine?
Slam! Going at this because Im going HAM. By the time im through you'll know exactly who I am. I resonate through all the oceans and all the lands. Being attacked by feelings that many will never understand.
This time last year I would have hesitatedBut a lot has changed in the last twelve monthsAnd now I am becoming the person I once hated.
What could I do? What would I say? I cannot begin to imagine the pain I'll feel once I realize you are permanently gone You'll be like a distant memory of what could have been, what was
I rather die... than force myself to sleep. Thinking that everything should be eiditic;
I am too hard to love,Too hard to comfort.
Leave me, I'm hurt can't you see? From the harsh words you've said to me, I'm fed up with the tears,
I hate the feelings of someone leaving
Who are you? I don't even know you anymore.
I have a theory,
Rain Rain Never Go Away You are the only one that understands my pain When everyone shuts me out You open your clouds up and cry with me
You can find me where the dust sparkles in the window from the sun's rays You can find me- there I'll be hiding beside the curtain blending into the wall
I am the glass vase you forgot to fill With flowers last week. So let me be cold, Let me be beautiful. Let me be clear. I am the drawer you left open in your Rush out the door. So let me be misplaced,
the indestructable girl
I've become numb from the amount of times I've heard the lies
Here I sit Head in my hands Heart on the table. It's withered and worn with every blow it gets worse I watch it grow and grow like a hot air balloon it fills until finally,
Why am I nor happy? I have such a big porch for me alone. I have the life that no one else owns. I have gold that no other holds. Why am I not happy? I have all I want, But something stands.
What is hope Is it the illogical sense of knowing everything will be alright? Is it stupid Is it smart What is hope Is it wishing something that you want comes true? Is it selfish
If I left today, who would miss me? If I packed my bags today and left, who would cry? If I would to walk until one day I eventually died, who would wish they said goodbye?
I remember how I used to be; all the same, I remember who I used to want to be.
Time Wasted, Spent Wondering, Waiting, Pondering Happiness, Smile, Anger, Sorrow
Just when I start to get used to things the way they are, they become unraveled. Life around me is unraveling, my mind is unraveling. I cannot seem to find a foot hold in this fragile ground.
I have locked them up, far, far away,
You broke my heart when you sai goodbye You made me cutt and want to die You told me you love me and that you cared You even got me a cute teady bear I gave you my heart And you tore it apart
i look at this blank page; or I I try to see bend the words Flowing from my own pen I look and I won't see the the truth in the words I write- I will look and I won't see that my mind is in a fight
AS darkness takes over my plea is to be free, but all it does is take over me. I hope for a candle, but no, it's to bright. so instead, I search for the right. You are in my darkness,
No one seems to understand my poetry the way I write my poetry is not for the rhymes my poetry ia written to make me feel good my poetry is where I vent all of my feelings my poetry
Placid water, My reflection stands still. Though my thoughts in my head, And the emotions that i feel, Run rampant throughtout me, Beckoning tears to my eyes. But no longer will i suffer,
Heartbreaks Couldn’t be you all by yourself
Everyday I wonder why Everyday I look into your eyes I see what I don't want to be Everyday I picture a dream in my head One so profound I feel as if it can never be crushed
It has taken mea very long timeto come to this point,but I’m realizing nowafter eighteen yearsof my lifethat it is okay to feel.I spent so many monthsof my life
Bark Bark We can't understand
I’m wearing this mask and even it’s turing blueNot sure how much longer I can lie to you
Sadness breeds stinging, numbing Pain, which then breeds twin daughters, both alike in strength, but different in nature.
Running for the Evening Sky It seems these days all I do is run,
I am living but I'm not alive Everynight I let myslef cry I go to sleep hoping to never wake up I am living but I'm not alive I've gone through things and I wish I died I wake up but I'm still dead
I don't know what happened, For everything just went black Feels like the world just stopped Now everything's just turning bad I Cant dry the tears falling from my eyes With my heart beating so fast
Kill me. Kill me. Kill me. I repeat in a unison of three, specifically. I'm tired of this life and all that it has become. I'm so numb and haunted by this world. Haunted by the life I'm currently living.
Washing my eyes With rain drops of Summertime He’s kissing my throat As I choke on this lullaby Singing it softly I whisper the words Lungs filled with sweet flowers
As my eyes close my mind is blown..
For I once counted Daffodils in my sleep, So delicate and unique. But no more can I sleep, For the devil has a hold of me oh so deep. For I once counted Daffodils in my sleep, So delicate and unique.
l Laying amongst these sharp blades
Living a dead life. Full of hatred towards love. Depressed happiness. I take forced breaths. Sometimes I wish I could gather up the energy to stop them. I complain about the life I have,
I'm a message in a bottle waiting to be read.
I've forgotten what it feels like, the love another. No, I don't mean like a sister or brothers. I mean that one person, the one who knows your fears. The one who pats your back, the one who wipes your tears!
Hello Umm...... I apologize if I'm a bother I usually don't do this because I'm.... Well I get nervous But I just wanted to tell you that you are gorgeous

I walk through school and I look at the sea of faces. Except, I do not see faces, I see walls. The walls that people hide behind to seem strong and in control.
I had met with an angel. Here's what he had said: Love me forever, and it costs but one small thing a life, fleeting a soul-less little thing your soul I ask to bring. I had met with that angel
Every day, I fake a smile, I look at the world through dead eyes, I slice up my wrists, And I bruise my thighs, They beckon to me, The colorful pills, The nylon rope, The loaded gun,
Sunlight brings about fake smiles, and energy. Moonlight brings out the true self. The one who cries themself to sleep. While the sun shines we all play the role, as an actor on a stage.
whilst the trees , royal and majestic slept through the dark,
happiness is a scary thing. it can be taken so easily, ripped away from your grasp, snatched away from your clutch when you’re already so comfortable, so accustomed.

Jimena hates living in this world She comes to a point where sanity and insanity become whole She struggles to understand the meaning of her existence
What are words? but a mere creation of humans. No words can describe how I feel, when I'm without you. No words can explain the feeling I get, when I see you.
I see you
Death is not a beautiful thing. It's terrifying. Just the though of it makes my heart quicken. What lies beyond, deep into the abyss.
Watching your back Disappear into the setting sun Why did you leave? I try to follow Only to be left behind A lonely shadow

Why is it that when you lose a love your heart breaks, if love is just a chemical addiction produced by our brains? Why does it feel like your thoracic cavity is hollow,
Anger seethes through my blood,
A stranger... A feeling... True or not Days, Months, Years... Friends, Best friends, lovers... One day, eyes are on her Slowly Slowly dissapear infront... of my eyes...
It's not healthy, I know Like I'm just putting on a show Writing rhymes to forget That I am very sick. Maybe something's not right This worsening plight
My life is unusual I hate myself completely, if my life were a story I would just delete me I'm dramatic nd mad Im never fully happy, my only emotion being anger, nd attitude nothing less than crappy
Trust and be assured until your whole life reduces to nothing but waking up morning after morning trembling with fear. Unknowingly passing it from man to man until every face is begging with unheard screams
The music is blaring my heart is despairng Tears roll down my face my heart is starting to race Sitting in a dark room just waiting for my doom Can't stand them poking at me
Some will never know the joy but only the end they'll never see the light when the light has dimmed

Abandoned, incomplete works of emotion litter these several spiral-bound books. Unfinished letters to people I hate and love with all my heart. The words lie on the paper,
Night after night, into the miserable hours of another weary morning, I waste my time lying restlessly in a bed too familiar. Tiny branches of red

This morning, my three year old sister ran through the halls in her princess pajamas and a cape wrapped around her head, while I nearly cried into my already soggy cereal.
So we started this for it to end?
One morning I glued my eyes onto the car dashboard and stared At the shadows passing across. It was early so the sun was rising slowly, But the shadows moved quickly like liquids.
From dawn 'till dusk I am enclosed, In my own world yet so exposed. Passing by, a mere obsever, Using distance as my life's preserver. Close enough to touch, too far away to see,
Troubled spirits speak the most... Because so much pain has the words flowing like the tears we cry.

Sometimes I feel like I am a lie. Not my life, but myself. Looking into the mirror I see… Past the small-lipped grin Past the curious eyes What Am I?
Thoughts are Drowning me In my head A pool Of lies And conspiracies Not stopping Until I have sunk But I know how to swim Memories are Burning me
No more hurt, No more pain, No more broken hearts, And no more devastating surprises. There is a cure for cancer.
How softly the music plays A minstrel’s tune sways I can only just feel it Brushing along my finger tips Tingling down my spine The world slowly becoming mute Yet feeling so alive
Whispering smiles indent my thoughts as I walk through the halls. Overthinking what's past and what's present has been known to ruin me. Every move I make causes my conscience to stutter.
She smells like something musky and quietly contained.
It’s still so hard To just wake up Each and every day. It’s hard to know A simple life can Make me feel this way. I’ll put on a face I’ll make believe. Somehow I’ll be okay,
We survive in a world of consumption No compassion for the surrounding How can we agree that we even live
Mental illness is never taken as seriously as it is. People critize and ridicule us with depression, saying "Wow, you're such an attention-seeker." If only they knew.

She awoke to hear him bid good morning She slept to hear him say good night But as the tide rolled in and washed him away She faded into the darkness today And time it screeched and cried
My thoughts painted the mid night sky red and vibrant colors to show them i still hope.
I like to think of you as the ocean sometimes.
If you choose to do so
I'm in a smoky bubble and it take all of the shine out of life and makes everything turn into rubble It just keeps you blind to everything else except the bad It distorts reality making you feel confined
I don't want to seem selfish I know there's bad all around But this holllow sound of emptiness Drowns out all of the cries for help I don't want to seem selfish
I can’t stop thinking about you. When I’m sober or when I’m drunk as all f*ck, you’re the only person that comes to mind. And I ask myself why?
Rain obscures my tears It drowns my sorrows and fears
Devilish deliverer of darkness Eerie establisher of ease Faithless father of fear
People say mean things they say I'm not good enough say I'm ugly or dumb sometimes they are right sometimes I am dumb enough to listen to the hateful words
Woke up one morning and there she wasThe ghost of who I once was
One day she will stop breathing
“Depression” I’m tired of wearing the painted grin That mocks me and all of my sin. The pain of my soul and my mind
You say that I've changed but you're the reason i'm so cold. Get out of my head, the fights quickly get old. You've made me so heartless something I knew nothing of. Once you broke my heart,
Isolate yourself then ask why you're so lonely. Tell you how I think, now I feel like a phony. These poisons were shared over and over before, between you and I, this darkness we tore.

It's the bubbly feelings. It's the cuddling in front of the fire. It's total understanding. It's the emotion that will never retire. It's pain and desperation.
It's completely natural to me, Like I've done it all my life, It helps to take away the pain, The way they treat me is wrong, It helps to take it all away, It helps relieve the stress,
I’m not saying sorry,
Grab my heart and squeeze. Make me suffer, make me bleed. I can barely breathe. Dry heave, all these happy memories. I can’t stand to watch you leave, Remembering lost moments of ecstasy.
Screw the people who break us down so much, that we become senseless and open If that’s an opportunity, damn, love, just consider me your token Let’s strip the truth of all its beauty
Being sick makes me depressed.
I'm in a state of suffering My soul condemned to this constant pain Expiating my sins The pain is becoming increasingly unbearable I just want to be done

A night to remember, a spin and a glideas we make our way through the aisle.I was too young when you left my side.
If an Author is a job than believe me my life will be changed. I sit and pondered on what is it I want to do for the rest of my life. It came clear to me that it would be to write.
I look and see greatness and admiration. I always have to look pass my procrastination. I would like to change that so I could get more things done.
My soul mate One day I find myself fly away Leave this world Above the stars Back again
Never letting go of me Shifting, thinking, bending You twist my body Whirling me around Glamorous
I dream in black and whiteI bleed the color of your eyes All I can see is your lipsGently glazing over mine As the sun setI saw my rose petals in the flame
you are the stars i gaze at every single night you are the sun i wake to with its rays of golden light you frolic in my orangejuice and snuggle in my bread you've nestled in my heart and you've rooted in my head
If I could change the world, I wouldn't change it. For we already have the capability to rearrange it. We are a feeling species. Full of love and of hate. Yet we cannot appretiate that fact.
Hollow Ghost of Red Heart Ominous with frantic rage Yet vindictive under the Vail Luminous as starlight nights
kiss me softly with your spirit when you sleep let's slip into warm bliss and drift away caress my hips, hold my hand
Breathing Just Fine Held under water Gazing upon him We fight for a way out The sea blue runs black
If I told you I was suicidal would you believe me? Maybe I don't cut, and maybe I don't attempt, but I sure do think about it every waking moment.
What is it about the world to have the colors of the rainbow?
She stares out the window Content as can be In her long raven locks A flower is propped. Paint Stains her olive hands She seems to care less As they lay on her dress
Gripping the razor She admires its silver tone Exposing her wrist She examines her canvas She glides the razor Ever so gently Feeling the painful hole in her chest go away
She always looked for a silver lining But never thought it would be a silver razor One side dull The other thin, sharp Admiring it reflecting the single light in her room Gripping it in one hand
You were taken too soon my friend And I sit here and wonder Why your life had to end Like the rolling of thunder My one regret is not responding In the month of November
If I jump,
Kept in the cold, creeping black
For Kathy, the girl who managed to break my heart. Thanks for the memories.

The budding feeling in the fleshThe feeling of what's in the chestThe feeling you cannot beholdThe feeling that lingers and unfoldsThe transient feeling of the air
Days, Weeks, Months, They pass. And I wait. I wait on you. I wait on a FaceTime, A call, Some word. But you don't call. You don't FaceTime, You send no word.
Surrounded need space To breath Suffocating looking for help and no one, no one notices Do I matter? Guess not Why not? Falls Tars fall
I can see the sun
Homeless individuals sleep with dreams of what they used to be Now they have moved on leaving the new generation drowning sea to sea No education, no temptation, to get a dream fulfilled
The Dark that cones, the dark that rises. The darkness that is the light, in all my wrong doing. If you protect me from myself, your protecting me from THE DARKNESS.
What is Love?
The time has come, my choice is made This life is cruel and humanity has no hope
I've been told these same things before But never quite in this way
¡Qué refrescante acaba de ser dicha bebida! Una figura cilíndrica que posee unos colores tan vivos que es extremadamente llamativa a cualquiera que pasa enseguida de ella.
Left in world, Where everyone hides, Behind a false face, Generality resides.
What would I change? What would I do to fix this broken earth? What would I do to recreate the humanity that has been lost through the years? What can one person do?

what is worse feeling sad, lonely, worthless, ugly, horrible... or feeling nothing at all? i told myself i was recovering this is recovery but a little part of me is saying that this is not recovery
A world dominated by people who have erased vulnerabilityFrom their thoughts, seems to be falling apart.We train ourselves to be stern and collectedTo not show emotions, because emotions are our downfall.

It is strange that I had never touched a cigarette until I had remembered how the taste would linger in my mouth after I had kissed you?
Look. Breath catching Ducking behind corners Hiding from something Too much to admit There. Its not your fault, not a bit But I'm so scared I don't sound like myself
Let not your world change to gray Even if you have shut them all away It's not your fault
Our lives are such a mess
I try to find myself, but I've been lost for forever. It's like I'm going in a circle so you'd think I'd know better. I'm somewhat lost in a trance, I can't find myself. Took 34 pills disregarding my own health.

My heart is stuck under a pile of 3 ton weights
The unbroken man says, “Emotions are easy to tell.” To which, the shattered girl replies, “You just buy what they sell.” Says the man, “Happiness is easily shown with a smile.”
It’s one of those nights when all the memories take physical form. When monsters swallow kindness to retch sadness and nostalgia.
Fear hinders our progress towards better times where we need not be alone, it suffocates lights and welcomes darkness into our mind's own home. Fear grips the souls of men in a way no human can,

Broken pieces Shattered heart My life just seems to fall apart But there's nothing that I can do Hiding what's inside showing what's not really there and Leaving behind my feelings for you
The cold blade that's pressed to my throat,
Depression Intercepting the world's blessings Depression Deception at its highest form Depression Dont think for a minute "my life is warm" cause its colder than an artic storm sometimes I wish I wasnt born

Outside my windowa chorus grows
Please don't lose yourself in your wild, untamed mind.
The Mirror never lies, You see what they see, The Scars, The Burns, The Lies, They haunt you, Bringing back old memories of love,
I stare at the mirror. Ugly! I blink back tears. Fat! I know it's not true. Don't I? I look fine. Hidden under clothes! People think I'm cute. They pity you!
Snow to sleet, and sleet to snow Trudging softly to and fro. Waiting for the golden glare Always hidden, never there. Sweetly “singing in the rain” Quite a lie, to my disdain.
When looking into your eyes The brown flecked storm of hurt and goodbyes Bores into you while a cement truck paves a new road for you to venture on by When looking in your eyes The pupil goes wide
When you want to cry You don't know where to go Don't know where to hide Knowing those moments leading up Those words or lack there of Words which stay in the head Which way to look
The mundane becomes extraordinary early in the dragging day as we meet before going our separate ways. Your gaze pours into me, warmth floods my heart; I drown in blue irises under waves of intensity.

He'll tell you he loves you. He'll talk real sweet. You'll think he loves you. You're just a piece of meat. First, there's denial. He wouldn't do that. He cared about me once.
Howling for recognition Incapable of moving Laying here alone Where are you
My father told me he was proud of me once,
In my short 16 years of life I've put myself into some crazy situations.
Feelings are a blessing, a truly magical thing Feelings make you laugh and dance,
when it breaks it doesn't make a sound there is no indication of its condition it just gives in, falling prey to the repetitive oppression of day after day after day.
Love and school and work and love. Ever feel like your life as a teenager is just too much? You love, and you work and you love, but in reality in will never be enough. Love hurts And work hurts more.

I needed you like I needed poetry..
A rainstorm of words, A twister of thoughts blunder inside my mind like a spinning top, It will not seize nor do I want it to; I am a writer and this is what I do,
She looks in the mirror who she sees is not who she is.
Happiness, lies Sadness will arise Anger will well let fly And joy will go goodbye
Paper hearts flutter in the breezeTwisting, turning, and floating to the ground
I wanted love I wanted freedom I found my love, it didn't last
He stands there Without a care in the world A lover by his side A girl to take his hand The tears wash down her face He doesn’t want her He doesn’t need her
I feel it on the inside. I feel it in my soul. I feel this certain something that makes my body whole.
With every hit no one can explain
His fingers brush through her hair And his words camouflage the pain in her heart He does not realize what he has initially done
The chosen people Waiting for the Messiah Will one day be free
He cost her too much Without much luck with their love She left, said goodbye

I'm afraid to confess I'm still heartbroken.
I'd give anything to change the depression that takes over the expressions of my mother. My mother,Who once wore a smile that complemented her asthetic face,
Is your adoration for me the same as the world's or different? You wake up and I may not be the first to see you - clothes indescent and feet bare.... but either way, I'm the first to await your initial step....
Sure, there's tons of things in life that aren't fair,Like no one being equal, despite what everyone "fights" for,
He asked me where my home was
Beth & Natalie No words strong enough in tragedy, Loving you with every breath. Forevermore, watching over us
Here lies Lenore, in eternal slumber Living no more, forever encumbered My sweet love, fueling my emotions Beauty of a dove, like a thousand oceans
If I could sum up, all the feelings I experience When I look into your eyes, so beautifully bright So close-up, demeanor so imperious
Thoughts are flowing in my head continously and confused.Is he even aware that I'm here?A smile he gives me in the hallway comes and goes.He talks with other girls the same way too.
I’ve been sailing for some time now, Even if I’m not sure how. Been here since the sun was bright, But now it’s pale and lacks that light. I do all to make it float,
brown eyes as bright as a star
I feel nothing. The world is nothing to me. I take steps, never feeling the ground below me. I touch hands, never feeling the electric energy flowing through our meeting. I speak words, that make no noise. I hear sounds, that have no volume.
The release of my emotions, The movement of my soul, The language of my heart, Dance. There are no limitations, no expecations, but only beautiful improvisations. Let go, to feel
Hush little baby, put down the knife, I am here now, you'll win this fight. I know it may seem hard, but just believe me, life will get better, just wait and see. I know it seems dark now, but you'll see the light, so long as you do
Emotions can run wild, confusing even the smartest people Emotions can wreck your life if they are not controlled right Emotions can bring you true happyness if you express them well
I don't know what I'm feeling right now
Tears are streaming down his eyesUnder the desk lays a broken boyEmptiness contains an empty roomNobody asks the question why Under the desk lies the broken boyHe screams in pain
My shell has cracks..
I sit next to you every night and feel the tension. You still can’t see why I want to be with him, Why I love him so dearly, How I could ever be with anyone like him, And one day, I hope you will.
the sad one were bright the sad ones get it life dark
I look up to cry the tears of the sky, The gray pasture covering me in its familiar cold I am crushed under the weight. People would say to me, Stand up, you’re fine. And I would try, Oh how I would try.
I haven’t met that guy that’ll turn my life around Show me the light with every gentle caress That has a smile that can warm a million cold hearts The laughter of sweet innocence and happiness
Él bebió hasta que su corazón se le fue. Caminó en tres bares, y empezó a pelear con los hombres. Yo lo observé sangrar y beber.
Drugs, sex, money. His hustle. Gangs,
Needle in a haystackI am the needle
say you love me once or twcie
As it arrives everything diesThe leaves change colorNature's beauty diesBut one true beauty remains in galore
I have a disease. I've had it all my life. I never had symptoms until age 13. I didn't want to deal with it so I ignored it until I was 15. I knew I could no longer avoid it.
I wanna run away Away from all the hurt and pain Painful mistakes and irony misplaced Crying................ That is all I know
Pain like Fire This pain I’m feeling, is unlike anything I’ve ever felt, Lost, Confused, Heart broken, it’s an everlasting nightmare. This pain I’m feeling,
Regardless of your innermost thought,
A dot .
It's times like these when I want to die.
In the cellar where my sanity should be, there's chipped stone walls enclosing the life I hadMy smooth skin scratches up against the rigid corners of the wall.
They plugged into my artery with a needle named “IV”
I was 13. Looking in the mirror, It never dawned to me why, Why the window between my teeth, The disproportionate nose, The “five-head”, Too sufficient for just a bang, Not brown
I’m extremely unfamiliar with the ability to want.
You’re so maybe, just maybe
I feel you in my skin
I miss you. What can I say? My burning desire of wanting to be with you grows by each passing day. I see the world in black and white now because you're not here with me.
How does death choose? Who we lose? How does it pick them? Each victim. I wish it hadn't picked you. I had no choice as your voice just faded away, and day after day
Soon flowers will growin the deepest and saddest partsof you and you'll bloom
You will always have people in your life that test you There will always be people there to knock you down It may seem that all the negative people are stuck to you like glue
It's the absence of warmth.The familiarity of a hand upon your shoulder.It's departure leaving all but an imprint.
Darkness floods you veins,Your eyes have become reflecting pools,Black like dreamless sleep,You ache for the affection,
I want to fall into you,Like butter on warm toast,Snow on a summer day,The fragrance of a slow cooked roast.
I turn my head to my conscious,
FOOD FOOD FOOD Every ravenous soul cries for What is food at all? Is it Satisfaction...? Or a remedy to survival...think about it - I see food as Cruel, Enemy, Evil, Vicious...
When love gets a little easier Maybe I'll be able to say hello and not have my eyes rain Maybe the tulips will finally bloom properly and maybe the dandelions will finally blow in my direction and cover my face with their wishes
As I stand idle,
I dove right in. I stopped drowning. Drowning?
When will things be different….will I ever get back the innocence I’ve lost. Will I ever smile again and have the light that twinkled in my eye?? Every day is a struggle to go on and to push through all the demons that haunt me.
One step out the door Come back!!! I can't do that, I've gone to far. I've stepped into deeper waters and I'm drowing. I've dug my own grave and the world is slowly closing in. You can't do this!
I know you think about situations and say, "That would never be me." You say I could never be that girl that's acting all fast as if she has no home training" or
Old friend I see your back my heart was not ready for attack I was happy or a moment I am slow to learn happiness never lasts I don't know why I am surprised It obvious just from my past
I live to see the sunshine, brighter than the green on pine I live to see the rain, gloomy and forever a pain I live to eat, stuffing my mouth whereever I find a seat I live to drink, only to end up in the kitchen sink
Close ur eyes go under luke warm water an stay there for 5 minutes thats how life was for me 'picture a darkness that is trying to take over think of trying to scream i cant hear
She tears through the darkness A dim glow of changing light With colors reduced to Bright Flame and Ash Her usually strong spirit is bruised But a spark of beauty shimmers within the eyes
Trembling hands and bloodshot eyes Slowly, their hands drift from one another “This isn’t really happening!” she cries.
I only see you in my dreams though I look for you always when I'm walking down the street and in every crowd I look out hoping to see your face (dreading actually seeing you,
My life is a book full of adventure and disappointment,
I don't think they realize how staring at these walls through blooshot eyes, can slowly kill you. You take so much in society that it slowly eats away at your soul. You begin to feel uncomfortabl
The first time we kissed, I wrote
It's real as real gets honestly,
I never thought it would hurt that much,
And it began, again. The battle between my mind and heart. "He deserves better than you!" "He will never love you!" "You are way too fat!" "You aren't his type!" "He will never love you!"
Beyond the pools of lotus land,
Heartbreak is not something that is easy to take For it clouds the mind and causes the esteem to effortlessly break Hours upon hours are spent of you picking up the pieces
Wrote this in the wee hours of the morning, sort of in a trance like state.
There's a quiet thunderstorm inside my head, the thoughts strike across my brain, neurons illuminate with light, transmitting more than what is visible by sight. There's a quiet thunderstorm inside my head.
I'm irritated Frustrated Angry Everything is botteling up Like soda That is shaken up Ready to burst and make a mess Showing my emotions seems like a test
I lay in my bed wondering,
If I lose myself, if I remove myself
Ever wonder what it’s like to stare into the eyes of someone and get lost? Like you’re in a jungle on a dark winter night? Or how about when you’re drowning, and you can’t save yourself;
Anger Pain Heartache Distrust Destruction Why?!?!?
Soft light falls through the trees Falls like the last leaves of autumn Blowing in the breeze And here I am missing you Missing you Tell me, do you miss me too?
You fill me up Then drink I am your partner during dark nights And your enemy Once you've had your fun And had your fill You leave me on the table And go to enjoy life's thrill
First it was the day met Then to our endless conversations Our first date to first kiss Two weeks in and went down hill Things I shouldn't let happen but it was to late
Falling apart Tar on my heart Black dog with rabies
At the start, it wasn't so clear We met each other, with drinks of beer
A pained existence Fear creates wounds Fear is agony Fear has become pain Pain that is as intense as a woman screaming into the night Because fear is the room she has been trapped in.
I want you to say no, I want you to reject me.I want you to say yes, I want you to want me. Anything but this, stuck blinded in the midst,no sense of direction,struggling to contain my affection.
If tomorrow I didn’t wake up and I died,how many of you would cry?How many of you would sigh,and just move on with your lives?No pain trapped inside,just another body without life.No priest to confide,
Pain is a sign that something is wrongMissing is a sign that you're not where you belongLonging is a sign that you're not done yet;Remembrance a sign that you're not to forget.Love is a sign that something is right;
It all started with the right hook A shock thru the spine Redirecting the foot Trembling in the knee and signaling for the left hook 1,2,3,4 Remembering the days her eyes was a beacon of hope
I never really feared anything. But As I sit here in my room filled with fear, I feel all the screams and anger from downstairs They shoot up my spine and over-take my body
A lone flower in a dusky, dismal room
this is her worst nightmareher biggest fearbut why is she here?not again, not this
My sister is a musicianWho plays only out of sight
I sit alone,trying to talk to you,but you dont want to talk,you never do,you only have one thing on your mind,its always that one thing.Dont you care about me?What about me?
they don't get itthey don't realize they're poisoning you with their wordsthey don't see that you've got a
He is gone forever, the boy named Alex. The seraphs come down beside me singing really taunting, " He who you call brother is with us."
This damaged girl coming from a broken home, no hope left leaving it all torn, Not a single soul for help in times of discord, What happened to all the love and care from her supposed friends?
She always comes & goes. It is better to leave, before she is left. She always comes & goes. She leaves before she is left. The friends she makes, Are kept for years –
Thoughts are racing through her mind When you ask her if she's all right All she says is, "I'm fine" You shake your head and reply, "okay" The silence echoes in your brain
Writing all of my feelings Will relieve me from all these teasings That will make me jealous in life. I just wanted a better life, But yet, I won't be anybody's wife
We kissed, I felt her lips connect as if we were one, and yet I wanted more. I could not resist her, her looks of pleasant torture, and warmest of the body. Long ago, her beauty vanished, and left there was nothing but hate.
I live in a time Where people have many walls. I also live in a time Where people desire to overcome these walls In any way possible. They have walls of anger and spite Inside their body and mind.
It's a raging battle inside of me
I had two crayons. Black and white they were labeled.
They judge before they get to know me, they see an alien not a human being. I am a threat to society, so they say, yet all I ever do is stay the same.
the waves in the ocean flow through the open holes in my heart hoping someday this time i can finally see the end of this shining light
The chained bird weepsBeatenLying at its masters feetHot tears of angerSilther down its cheekSick of being trappedBy defeat,The chained bird weepsThe little bird rages
If the sun burned hot enough would I still miss your eyes? If the moon was always full would I stop wishing for clear skies? If the grass was green enough would I be satisfied without you?
Because if you are to love me there are some things you must know for one i am broken and hurt and my view on love is blown I have to start from scratch and learn how to love again
Lies, passion...so discreet, live in the eyes of the loves who meet. Blinking and sweating with zeal, your soul saddens when my heart you cannot steal.
My chest is heavy and it's hard to swallow.....it's different this time. I don't recognize what I'm staring at. A sad smile hiding foolish insecurities about what to do next.
To him, what have I done was it worth it in the end are the joys of love really real? or is true love just pretend to love him as my own is sin to leave him would kill me i shelter what i feel within
And as the days go by you rub away at me and peel back the pages of my skin Soon I shall be raw,sore and broken
And as the days go by you rub away at me and peel back the pages of my skin Soon I shall be raw,sore and broken
I know am not the most perfect, beautiful women in the world, you took me to your home, you gave me love, happiness and affection.
You look at me And what do you see, Some ‘confidence’ and ‘empathy’, So you waltz right up expecting me To be your loving Savior.
I tried to run I tried to hide Tried to fight the monster that’s inside But I see an endless sun I think of when I showed my fear
Love is like a drug once you've taste it Searching for that same feeling But I forgot to pace it
A dream divineIs only a nightmareIf a thought is to blind beyondMeasures I often question such a beautifulCurse of a dreamIs it only a reality that we often wonder?
In the midst of dayThere I sit in my roomAnd stare awayMy water is tainted and condensendingAnd my mind slowly blows smoke ringsI watch the stoney trees
Sadness Depressed, gloomy
I remember that day when we first met you spoke naught and only looked at me and shyly smiled but that day I somehow knew that we were meant to be your brown eyes ripped through mine heart and saw me
Im lingering on the edge and i dont know what to do, im doing something i didnt want to happen.
The echo of an empty hall White shadows on the placid wall A waft of he, departs from breeze And corner eye I chance to see Complacent lips, that part for me. Then mind by strings turns body 'round
The weather is gloomy. It hangs in the air, Its unpredictable patterns, Remind me of someone that I hold dear, My best friend is this way, It’s sad to think that she is hurt and unhappy,
Love is a question mark that hangs above my head, It is like a butterfly that takes the risk of being dead, Love can be the root to many other emotions, Like despair which is as treacherous as all of the oceans.
When. It was on a cold day like this
I thought it was a dream, I thought it wasn't real
Tears fill up my lungs
You always thought, your kids will never know the feeling of addiction, but I went to re
I stand there looking at your face. My thoughts starting to race,
Emotions explode in a definite roar Pushing rational thoughts away Logic shatters across the marble floor Leaving nothing but cities of gray Now as I gaze into the open door
My bear is with me nightly, as i fall into smooth slumber. Sometimes i dream, most times i don't, but its there through it all, Its there when you aren't. My only friend, confidante.
Love-- it means nothing now but flirting and empty sound it's physical and short last nothing like was in the past. There was a time when "I do" Meant I want to spend my life with you.
My anger pours out as I scream for some release. I want to be gone and away from this beast. Nothing I say is ever enough for you. I cannot be content as long as I'm being used. Set me free I repeatedly scream.
Despair and darkness have taken over my life This is nothing new I've gone through and put up with a lot of strife What is one more day of hell when your life is a pit of fire? You ruined me
The strength of a smile,
Ooh farewell Ooh farewell Sorry to see you go My hopes where For you to come home again Praying for the sun to shine on you Never to be rained on by falling bullets or falling bombs
Heart that beats pain is something you can't see, you can only feel if you were that person Don't try to come and tell them to feel differently They will not listen because you don't know the whole truth to it
Last year I sketched our dream home with two balconies and a koi pond in the backyard. It was simple pen and paper
It's true to say, Every girl has flaws, And it's true that its displayed Every guy has been clawed. But ones for sure, For me it's a personal tour. I can say that I've loved
I wish I could show you how utterly afraid I am not of you but of what you can do
and we’re a boat full of broken people because life is a cruel and dangerous game
In this universe, there’s too much pain From people to people, it’ a non-ending train Trying not to give in time Wasting is not a try Good, bad, jealous, uncaring
Silence,loneliness, she hated it the most.
A rose, but one, none other rose did I have, A rose, one rose, and this was a wondrous creation, One rose a rose that brightened earth and sky, One rose, my rose, that sweetened my breath and air,
I am not j
I was not born mean I was born into treachery Riding on glaring black wheels My heart's left black eye caught feelings Who knew a handsome fellow Had inherited Jack the Ripper's thirst
Shut off in my little world A dust bunny jumps on by
I sit in psychology, A class I should be interested in, but instead worry About the little problems that I have that do not reflect any other person Except myself. This sounds normal.
The point of the pen cuts deeper than the bladeIt leaves its mark, on my skin, the pageFinger print lines, lies on those lipsIt dripsInk glistens, follows veinsA sick beat trailing after your blood
The case of a bladeIn the darkest placeI clutched it through fabricThrough every feelingA portal to a memory long goneThe blood on your handsThe smile on your lipsf̶e̶l̶t̶ feels so good
Ideas born out of 2amGrown to wrap around my eyesPull them downThey will not shutConstant spike of ideasIn my brain, it hurtsThe throb of thought against boneI am not destined for sleep
Anxiety flows over you, toppling and sending radical shivers of coldness throughout your body. It makes a cold sweat and a nervous shake; Causing overthinking and a racing heart.
There is a notion that Crying is Romantic at night Alone into the bed sheets But the truth is It can hit at dawn Or in the afternoon In the shower In a crowded room In a big room
I had yearned for so long I had waited for too long I died inside for too long no love no compaasion no warm embrace not even a tender touch quiet nights desperate mornings
We've All had that kin of love, where we fall so hard we've all fallen for the one person who can do no wrong to us we've all gotten to that point We've all been wraped up in the phenomena of
I wanted to be the one that you wanted But a relationship just isn't what you had in mind And ain't nothing wrong with a good time, it's fine
Heres a story like to tellabout this boy i thought i knew so wellthought he was the one for me all the other boys i couldn't seeit should have been me and you i could have been you and i
as she sped down the interstate going 90 she saw things she saw her father hanging off a power line a tv cord permitting him death she would see the cord murdering him
In the silent waves she saw herself, Lost and confused, she cried for help. Through the screams and moans that came tumbling out, The distorted images that filled her with doubt. No longer could she stand alone,
Talking to my mothers graveUsed to be the hardest thing everI would just cry my eyes outThinking she would be back never
Students came trampling on the ground
They call me the "Ice Queen" for a reason. I honestly don't know what happened. Even when I was kid, young, naive, and believing in everything, I didn't believe in myself
Don't tell me you're sorry If it takes my blood Dripping to the floor For you to notice You're not truly sorry You're just desperate For a quick relief
Like you walk past an amusement park But you don't have a ticket when You go to Sunday church with your family
She isjust like everyone else,just like any other girl,liking her clothes and shoesAnd the silly things in life.But then she isn’t.
I am a dog on a leash Willing and trying to move forward But something is always holding me back
Therea are days When I look around, I see other girls Walking around And I just break down, Like I can't do this any more, And I start to wonder if it'll ever get better.
Alex Noe, I love you You make me feel very special But you have to know I won when I first met you Only been a month It feels right to say “I love…” I believe in us I know we can make this work
I need times like this--to myselfTo cook up formulas with words that explode, sending minds into the unknown.Hidden messages through similes and metaphors that'll make the greatest fold
I'm so confuse alone and a mess, I'm sitting in this fucking desk staring at my messy grades, there worst then a wreck where can i reset? These teachers don't help,
Alone. Always I am alone. No one to turn to and nowhere to run, it isn't on purpose and it isn't fun. I try to stand up, I try to speak out, but always I am told that without a doubt,
It feels like I been here before I feel familar with this scene these words theses actions I feel like its on everyones minds thoughts lips tounge, its been in every corner of the world this feel to familar yet it has no shape, nor organic matte
Dancing Shadows By Laquanna Allen In today’s society There is only one thing you can be The bully or the bullied Round and round
I'm nothing special Not beautiful Not talented Not funny Not smart I'm just an average girl Destined for an average life For meaningless experiences And dismal opportunities
I feel like I'm walking upstream through a current strong enough to pull me under again.
I Just Want To know If I died today Who would cry tonight Who would miss school tomorrow Who would regret their actios next week Would anyone stand tall like a mountain for next year
I grew tired of sleepless nights- Contemplating life while simultaneously Managing to not participate in it.
Well here I am again left broken and confused. They hurt me and I feel used. I used to be strong till they broke me apart. I used to have life but now they broke my heart.
as of right nowI'd rather be a poor woman on the street no food to eati don't wont no but if i have to crylooking down seem like i had it all
Believe me, I am aware Of every single flaw Or imperfection That creates my Monstrous existence. So who are you To come and blame My imperfections For making me
I came home and found you in your usual spot, hiding from the world. Dark despide the sun being awake. Your eyes are open yet nobodys home, you stare straight ahead without following my movements.
i i w i wa i wan i want i want t i want to i want to b i want to be i want to be f i want to be fr i want to be fre i want to be free.
Where are you going, I can't find you, where are you going, I just trusted you, Where are you going tonight. I just wanted you, and I just needed you, I am waiting, I am alone,
My life is like a bad fairytale. Dragons lurk in every cave, ogres in every shadow. When I get to the place where the castle should be, what do I see? The evasive palace has escaped me.
Powerful word: Ignored. Emotionally and physically. Why does the world have the mentality of every man for itself? Feeling lonely and unimportant. Both in home and the world.
I want to love you for forever and a day. Til the sun comes down, and its time to lay. Til, the wind blows and the seas roar. I wanna be with you, but dont forget theres one more.
My blood ran cold as he looks at me,i shiver as his breeze past me, i look apon his face and i worry... why is this i wonder?
Hey Mr. Principal, Hey Mr. Smith, I hope you sit comfortably – On your plush office plinth, With all your private accolades – That no one could care about, To the varsity trophies –
This is the blood i bleed There is a reason for this pain Some people just never understand The pain i go through is too much to withstand This pain i go through is worse than any other
--How much pain How many tears How many times must I say the word LOVE How many broken hearts must I suffer from How many times do I have to stare at a blank response How many lies
To think you would care To think you would understand but I liked believing you did The sweet oblivion was better than facing the cold hard truth Turns out you never knew me
Eventually Eventually you’ll run out of tears, Eventually you’ll run out of fears. Eventually you’ll run out of sadness,
How do I stop from watching the spiders crawl around my bedroom corners? Are people not spiders? Crawling from corner to corner making a mess in order to thrive of flies around my room.
Love a 4 letter word, though it holds so much gravity yet we throw it around like something thats only worth a penny Hate
A clear-cut diamond ring, Fall, winter, summer, spring. Seasons change, The birds still sing. Those lovely hazel eyes, Lies, disguise, Another surprise. Who would have thought,

There's nothing i wouldnt do just to see you again All the words i've said have no meaning With this mess i've made i must do all the cleaning I told you i loved you But you left me with no clue
Let's pop some pills, Fall in loveCut our wrists and spill our bloodDrink come Gin, let's die tonightCome on Demons, help end our lifeLet us bleed, for what we see
Let's pop some pills, Fall in loveCut our wrists and spill our bloodDrink come Gin, let's die tonightCome on Demons, help end our lifeLet us bleed, for what we see
I know this girl Who has a broken heart Who wants to cry Who wants to die Who wears a fake smile But has a friend that tells her "Stay strong , everything will be okay." She wants to scream She wants to shot But wont....... She remembers all
All the cliques laugh away While I sit and watch Wondering where my friends are Wondering where you are Wondering why distance keeps us apart. The teachers will lecture
I hate the way you look at me
I am scared of this snake that sucks the life out of me. I am scared of this butterfly that plagues my dreams at night. I am scared of this spider that
Every day's a waste. I'd rather have just died. I try to get though it. Believe me, I've tried. I am so tired of feeling Like no one gives a shit Not my friends or parents. Im so done with it.
I always said it couldn't happen to me I always said my heart cant be broken I always said I would never cry I always said I don't fight for boys I always said NO FATHERS ALLOWED I always said I don't believe in love But now I say that you change
Could one let a whole lifetime pass, without feeling like they've walked on broken glass? Could one look into rain out of window, and say they've never felt a drop of sorrow?
Teacher, teacher I'm not sure if you know My mind may be open But my heart remains closed Teacher, teacher Please, just hear me out There are so many things
I'm in distress You are not I came to you for comfort I laid all my problems on the table Frustration Anger and fatigue You looked at me With pity For half a moment
I don’t understand Why so many kids Feel this way About living this life We’ve never had to Pay a bill
Love is hallow as a cave Led by its beauty, a great quest Love is a path for the brave It will never settle for less.
Little girl why are you crying Is it cause everyone keeps lying Saying its gonna get better But your face just keeps getting wetter Little girl why are you so sad
Take my hand feel the warmth emitting from the sand as ashes burn I will learn not to break Fragile soul, what more could be at stake? Oh dear one, don't abandon me Oh dear one, hear my prayer
Here we go..again. So you loved me? You cared so much about..me?
She closes her eyes and sees nothing.
You give me some kind of feeling. I'm excited, Yet a little scared and apprehensive at the same time. Will I do it right? Will I be good enough?
I will make promises,
I tried to give you a chance. All you wanted to do was play games. My love out in the open; obvious at first glance. I fell for the charm; the way you said my name. The way you held yourself. I was blinded.
Love is something I don't understand.Hell, I don't think anyone does.When you say "I love you."And they say "Don't."How do you expect me to changeThe way I feel about youIt's not much of a choice.
Kiss my lips and empty me, love me long and set me free. I'll give you it all, even me. Or crush me quick and leave me be. Our love is strong..in harmony Love is only temprary.
You clenched at my chest, For a sweet rational moment. Heart drop. Bottom rock. The bitter grin Made my face numb like gin. The only Substance That can Be Absorbed
I ran. As fast as I could. To try to get away from him. From the hurt. But he always found me. I screamed. I ran the other way. But I found myself in the end back in his house.
I'm sorry that I fell in love Sorry that I think you're perfect Sorry that You're the one I didn't mean to bother. I didn't mean to push you away Didn't mean to go insane I just wanted you to stay
What Did i Do That Was So Wronq All iReally Wanted Was For Us Tew Ghet Alonq I Thought This Relationship Was PERFECT :) But iGuess He Doesn't Feel The Samee And That Really Does Hurt Me
Firm arms wrapped around my waist Chocolatey skin I can almost taste Your words caress my senses But strangely provoke my defenses These words you speak, are they even yours?
Stuck in my mind, but I must rewind. Death seeks everyone, its part of life. There is a limit of time, passes by like the speed of light. Containing wonderful memberies,
I hate this feeling. The feeling of hitting your breaking point. You're so broken and shattered on the inside. How can it get any worse? But then it does. And you feel like you can cry an ocean, and drown in your own painful tears.
Blue for tears the sadness hidden inside. Green just as emeralds vibrant alive. Gray dark clouds preventing one to enter her soul.
Another soul was lost A soul who forgot the meaning of hope A gun to the head No warning given to others Why? I guess he just gave up #RIPCameron
Society killed the teenager. What did we expect? That the words would roll off their shoulders? No responsibility to collect? Society killed her. They said she wasn’t pretty enough.
I know what this is. This is the hammer you wield Pounding against my head. Though you are no Thor, But rather a monster
The way he makes me feel The feeling is unreal He makes me feel pretty He's not the one I imagined But still he makes my heart flutter The way he stares at me is not uncomfortable
I dreamed of you last night I dreamed that you were with me all through the night I dreamed that you held me close and never let go I dreamed that you whispered in my ear And told me that you loved me
I could always jump, you'd find my body in a dump. Body broken like my soul, for its spirit no longer could hold. I could always cry, sometimes wishing I could die.
A poem a day Keeps the darkness at bay, Extracting my emotions Sets my creativity in motion, My writing is a hiding place Where I can disappear without a trace, I submerge in the waters of passion
The world as she knows it comes to an end.The pain, the suffering, the life of my best friend.Her soft fluffy body so frail and so depleted,I can't help but to think that her life wasn't completed.
I remember like it was yesterday that we talked, joked, and laughed and now that you are not here that is all in the past I can see clear as day a smile spreading across your face
The days I spent living my life in the shadow of another are wasted. Why must I skulk in the shadows while you get to walk in the light? Is it possible that perhaps I was never meant to be seen, to be noticed?
My feet smell And neglect appears to be my only friend. People hang out and talk with me We share only words Though nothing articulate.
a release a shot of blood right to the end spilling out from something dead so much thought from that cold corpse it overflows on to a different source find food find breath
