Because my heart is telling me I want some fun
The coldest of winter has finally gone
So wake me up until the morning sun
I was dreaming of myself in an strange new world
Someone told me that I’m the most beautiful girl
I’m the one with this beautiful flowers
That will give me an amazing power
With the power of spring hidden inside of me
I could wake them up 1,2,3,
Wake me up til the morning spring
I will wake you with my colorful wings
The coldest of winter has faded away
You will all come out & play

To a 'friend': Poem why am I feeling so down?To a 'friend': Poem4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
like my soul has been turned around
all the hate of a former friend
I knew this would be the end
learned the pain she caused
her anger at first would at first make me applause
i would laugh if she screamed at me
even if her comments stung like a bee
i wouldn't care
I would just stare
but she didn't yell when I ranted
I had let her speak, that I granted
in the past she says
but I don't care about what she had displayed
she hurted others
but when you finally blocked me for good
I start to feel bad when I think I misunderstood
but you got to change
go to hell, no one wants you back here

For all the angsty poems I wrote
When I thought I was mad at you
For breaking me.
I was mad at me
For being broken.
I'm no longer mad.
I'm no longer broken.
But I'm still pretty good
At angsty little poems.

The Worst of Moving On The Worst of Moving OnThe Worst of Moving On10 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The hardest part about looking ahead
is knowing that there is something,
or someone, still behind you-
and you mustn't turn around to
see them again.
It's the memories that sting,
and beg you like a poor man to cry-
but you just can't;
you're heart and mind are getting
too strong for that.
You are trying to let go.
You put on a smile and a laugh:
"Oh how easy this is!"
All you want to do, though,
is scream and curse the world
for its cruel nature.
Trying to remember that
soon this pain will, itself, be
a memory to share only makes
it all harder to bear;
you wish that time would come now.
Moving on is remembering that
what used to be the present
is now all in the past.
It is picking up the pieces,
after falling apart,
and moving on in your journey.
Where Am I?I look up and don't recognize my surroundingsWhere Am I?7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I scream but nothing comes out
My voice is gone
I look in the mirror but see no one
Even my shadow has disappeared
I don't know how I let myself get so lost
I thought I had an unerring sense of direction
When did my compass break?
My center has shifted
I can't regain my balance
Everything is spinning
Going so fast
Is this how it's supposed to be?
I feel so tired
How am I supposed to pick myself up when I can barely breathe?
I turn in a circle
Coming up empty.
This knot in my heart
I don't know how to untie it
Every step makes it worse
Heavier and more crushing than yesterday
I didn't know it was possible to drown in the desert
An oasis turned into a nightmare
These words the first in a long time
I write faster and faster
I need to get this out
I try to look inside
I'm besieged by title wave of blackness
So easy to succumb to
Where did it come from?
Am I creatin
Painted HeartIt's not in the words you sing but the music played behind themPainted Heart7 hours ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Can't be found in the things you see, but in the colors of your eyes
Never taken, but given with reverent reimbursement
Won't be felt in the soft tracing of your fingers, but in the thin red threads that we weave between ourselves
You will not unravel it's mysteries on a chalkboard, but with paper's frail pen can one give evidence
It does not glitter like shimmering gold or silver but buried with the treasures of pirates
It cannot be bought but by the perfect substitute through innocent surrender to death
For while we were still sinners, Christ died for us
The death of God spilt innocent blood on our hands
For Christ is the color of your eyes
And love, the pigment of the heart
My little poem...My little poem...7 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
This is a little rhythm that I've come to hone...
Proving that sticks and stones may break bones...
There are sayings about those stones...
but this is about then just bones...
evil words create shattered souls...
and leave the living full of holes...
I die in my room every night...
usually right after a fight...
families are supposed to bring peace...
not the war that all would cease...
Some children are dying, reach out...
while they're at school bullied about...
people like me did not make friends...
in fact most of us made our ends...
Its the people like you ignoring us...
you are the reason for all this fuss...
people like you we looked up to...
you're the reason why we are blue...
when you're someone's role model and leave them to die...
its all because you were all full of too much damn pride...
And now we are slowly fading...
wishing, longing, going, aching...
for every child with a silent scream...
just remember, remember your dream...
There IS hope in all us you'll see...

Like a brick or club
Abrupt and insensitive
Like a chisel sharpie
Thick and unrefined
Like a freight train
Not to mention
All these traits you need
To be a 'man'
To not be walked over
To not be used
To not get cast aside
To actually get somewhere
Because the 'nice guy'
Doesn't finish last...
He never even gets the chance
A broken danceYou and I love to danceA broken dance2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
You lead the routine
And for a moment's rhythm broken—
I step on your foot,
And see through the game long veiled
And you continue, with the sway
You know just how to cover your mistakes
But I only see
And even deeper past the trick—
How did you expect me to believe?
"I'm an awful dancer,"
When your slip-ups are on occasion
"Oh, pity me!"
You always scream,
And pity I do,
Lord forbid I ever....hate you!
What did you earn?
My voice, calling your name every now and then?
My emotion for you?
And such a short-lived thing,
My tolerance for you,
Such a short-lived thing...
I step away
I leave our dance—
Without a word
With part a world—
A world not to be trusted
The one thing she doesn't questionThis voice questions a lot of things,The one thing she doesn't question2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
But she never questions you,
No matter how bad things get,
She'll always whisper the same thing,
"It's ok we have him",
And when I dare question him,
She screams in my ears,
"He is ours he will never leave",
And so I never questioned again,
His soothing voice sends her crazy,
His gentle words lull her to sleep,
and all I do is smile as,
The butterflies prance in my stomach,
She stays happily in her cage,
Just waiting to hear that,
Heavenly voice of his,
He keeps her calm,
He keeps the world safe from us.

"Don't you know that we failed?" His voice was barren, yet tears were locked within. He stood off in the fairly close distance, face hidden by the shadows. "She's dead. It's over."
"No..." Words were choked out, yet no mouth moved in sync with them. "That can't be... It isn't... It isn't over. It can't be."
"The world hasn't any need for us," a woman, standing opposite of the boy, replied quietly while looking to the side. "It's best that we depart."

Let me see the pain, let me see the anguish
Don't shut me out like you did before
I can mend your broken soul, just give me the time
Don't let the rain follow you as you walk down that lonely road
I will be there for you
I will chase the rain clouds away
Bring the sun to melt your frozen face
Don't turn away please
I can save you if you let me
I tried calling you on the phone
You wouldn't answer...
Well...I panicked, I almost lost my mind
You showed up and wrapped your arms around me and smiled
as if a burden was lifted from your shoulders
You grew wings that day

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
I’ve never been more happy,
Than when I was in love.
There’s something about love,
Something so engrained in humans,
The idea of someone loving you,
That makes a person aggressively happy.
Do you know what that’s like?
To be so maniacally happy,
That you wanted to break something,
That you wanted to kill someone,
Or perhaps, throw a rock at a stranger?
It’s such an intense feeling.
Not only do you feel like you can beat Death,
You feel as though you can go get some coffee with him.
You end up spending hours just talking to Death,
Asking him questions about his job,

The sorrow I feel, depressed my life,
For I will always remember how kind you were to me,
Even though we lived far apart,
Please rest in peace, that your in heaven,
And wait for me there, and join you in a celebration of reuniting.
I will always remember you and never forget,
There's a time in life, when your heart will be broken, A time will pass away,
Shed no tears, don't cry, cause time has set its course, for those who live to die in their time.

At least not at them.
I can smile at you.
but not at them.
Humans are wasted on me.
My heart is cold
My soul is cracked
My brain is disorganized.
I feel like I'm lost
Like I'm floating in
this empty space
a white space like
the paper I draw on.
Maybe that's it.
Maybe I'm some discarded draft
or a forgotten book on a dusty shelf
or a ghost town in the middle of
And I know that
Even if you loved me
The way that I loved you
It wouldn't shake
this empty feeling.
But I'll always want you
You tantalizing tease
That thing I'll never have
but always yearn for
love me, damnit.
