Your smile printed on every page and your heart in every syllable.
My fingers would stroke the cover like they caress your skin,
and my eyes bound to ever letter like they are to your image.
The soft smell of your pages,
as comforting as our first morning kisses.
If beauty were words you'd be more than a book,
you'd be an adventure from start to finish.
Wet eyes and racing hearts all along the way.
Each word I'd hang to, as sweet as the last.
If beauty were words, you'd be this poem.
Every stroke of my pen,
a new letter and a new beautiful curve created.
So be words, my dear,
and I your author.
Together we will write the greatest sonnets, the most tragic plays,
together we will create the greatest love story ever written.

A stillness that reaches the heart
Right after rain has fallen
Untouchable and alive to one another
With indirect heart beats that surge behind shadows
That are nothing but blinding when we face one another.
To burn outward
And I wish that you could see me the same way you embrace the warmth of a fire that burns away the frigidity of this shadowed existence.

Talk and walk
Cry and laugh
fall and raise
It is jus a part of life
When a person stands all the time
He gets the time to sit
When a person finishes talking
he goes away by walking
When it's time of crying
There is also laughing
And when a person falls
He is there to raise himself
Smiling within himself
In and Out of the Dark.Every step that I made felt heavy todayIn and Out of the Dark.4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I walked home from school.
The sky was painted with dark grey clouds,
And a cool breeze whipped across my cheeks.
As I walked at very slow pace,
All I could think of was him.
When I waltz my way into outer space,
Crying of tears filled with pain and sorrow,
He is always the bright star
That will shine through the darkness.
I gasp for air when I fought my way back to the surface,
After thinking I was going to drown in the trenches of the oceans.
It was his hand that had pulled me out,
And kept me safe.
Atlas, there are others around,
And my knowledge of love is a string of thread.
There is nothing to hold onto.
I stare at myself every morning,
And wait for the mirror to crack.
Who would love me, really?
I am nowhere near as special
As the rest of the stars.
So I will lay there in my bed,
And attempt to dream of the sweet candies in life.
But I pray that he will still come,
When it goes from daylight to darkness.
My Broken Charger My broken ChargerMy Broken Charger4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
My energy to live my life is waning away as I stare into the pointlessness of life
I'm like a laptop that's been over charged, I'm broken and I cannot be mended
I've lost my luster
I've lost the feeling to go on
I just need to understand why I'm broken
I may not be in a broken home, but my charger is broken
I cannot be fixed
I'm ruined for eternity
I try to love and I go too far
Thus my charger breaks
It's a shame
They say "he could've been great"
"He could've been bright"...
At least that's what people will say after I'm gone
However, I think not about this in the same way as I used to
What is the point to life when your charger is broken and you're bound to lose your love and life?
I cannot hold my feelings in any longer
When my charger was

becoming lovely shades of red and orange
A chilly breeze come and goes,
bring them up into a miniature whirlwind
from the layer of leaves that covers the ground
giving the place a quiet and calm scene
The only season that isn't as burning or freezing
But the days grow shorter, the nights grow longer
and gradually changes to winter.
Never had a smile during this season oddly,
giving a mask-like one
Observing others being so cheerful,
from the side as a wallflower
never noticed, never heard
Hiding the sadness and frown with fake cheerfulness,
so that no one should worry
if maybe one day,
slowly fade from existent.

For everyone to listen to their own thoughts.
So how do you do it?
How do you live past that part of you that says you're not good enough,
I'm not good enough.
All I am is the understudy
Studying under gods so grand
That ego is all that's left of what sits on their shoulders.
I'm done being tied down by unbreakable chains,
I'm tired of being a slave to unforgivable words
And a mind that can't see the thin line between emotional and physical.
My brain has been triggered into trauma
But I'm too deep in the river for anyone to see that I need saving.

When they’re shared with a selfish mind
Trust is beautiful
Yet very hard to find
Tears go unnoticed
When the person is blind
I know I said I didn’t care
But you threw me away
How is that fair?
I know I told you I hate your guts
But the pain is killing me
It’s driving me nuts
What is a friendship
When it’s so unimportant
It’s just waved away at the first sign of trouble?
What is a friendship
When you’re so unimportant
That you can be forgotten in a split instant?
Do you remember the time
When we spent all night outside?
On our backs laughing
Side by side
It reminded me of our childhood
Of what we said we’d always do
If we ever hung out all night
I’d stare at the stars with you
With hopes that just maybe
I’d see a shooting star
So I could wish for us to be friends
Without the reward of a scar
But I didn’t get my star
I didn’t get my wish
So now I have to suffer
With whatever’s on my dish

my molecules have taken to
throwing themselves off of nonexistent buildings and
smashing into concrete walls
molehills are constantly mountains
and though on good days insanity is held at bay
with the sound of rain
it is only a matter of time before I am consumed
by the black hole inside me,
for it tires of not being fed
laughter only masks the problem.

I don't wanna just be okay...
That means I'm not doing my best
That means I'm failing
That means I am doing wrong toward you
It means I'm not proper enough at this moment in time
It means I don't feel good enough
It means I'm given just enough approval
It means I'm in the same group as everyone else
It means I'll be treated like any other friend
It means I'm not special
It means I've lost my old self
It means I need help
It means I've corrupted myself somehow
I don't wanna just be OK...
I wanna be good, to be desired or approved of
I want to be wonderful
I wanna be great...
I wanna be appreciated
I don't wanna seem forceful
I don't wanna seem hateful
For I only love you in true

Thinking of my happy ever after
The kind you see in the movies
Something you read in the manga
Something you only see in your dreams
Never thought to be real
I'm just your ordinary woman
With thoughts and needs and wants
Of such a life I crave
Something every woman raves about
I have something to confess
Sometimes I'm organized and I'm a mess
I don't want to be one of the guys
It's something I've come to realize
The inside of my heart wants to be recognized
Am I enough for your eyes~
Am I good for you alone
This heart is longing to adore

I know I'm single for a reason
Someone needs to know
Why it's so good to be alone

I have God by my side
I'm such a romantic fool
But that's ok
That's who I am--
Someday when my prince will come
I'll feel my heart beating like a drum
I'll forget the days of being alone
On my own

I am a nobody.
Just another voice in the distance,
A figure in the shadowy corner that is my life.
I am a time bomb,
On which my timer resets at random.
Never quite on track with the rest of the world always three steps behind,
I can't take it!
This is not worth my effort,
My writing, my singing, composing, what have you,
Its all pointless.
No one will ever see or know the inner workings of my mind.
The cogs that turn and create the genius that I like to think of myself,
Knowing I'm only average at most,
Barely worth the air that I breathe.
I'm so lost.
I just don't know how or why or what to do
I can't even begin to fathom the complexities that make up the human psyche
Forcing these words from my mouth and these emotions,
These emotions that ignite a flame within me that is burning my lungs and esophagus like poison!
Poison, of my own creation.
That I chose to drink.
What is wrong with me?
Why can't I just escape from it all?
Let the past die?
I'm not even good for my

Endless expansion, I'm always bursting at the seams.
A place to meet others, to discover new things-
You may wish to read of Canada or long-dead kings,
Play a game or start a fight;
I won't judge-- I don't know what's right.
I am home to communities large and small,
Freelancers, hobbyists, and corporate ladders tall.
Snugged deep in the alleys are unsavory doings,
While out in the square stands a cow mooing.
Collaboration or isolation,
I can make or break a nation.
Vast superhighways and less-trod dirt roads,
One may journey through a variety of modes.
No matter the time, my lights never die.
What am I?

Come ask why I have seen no sun
Nor blue of any vigil sky
That wanders past an enclosed grind
My cavernous compound is breached
The skull has lost its clenching teeth
But bone is dead even inside
If mind will not enact, but hide
Your feet are treading nervous gaps
A transfer long to come mayhap
I slunk but you approach my shell
The light of life into my hell
It shows the soft and pudgy me
Too scared so left to atrophy
A fallen place that draws your frown
Unto my face I hear your sound
The buzz of burning shards outside
The crunch on wasted vessels dried
My house a ruin brings your gaze
To lone curator's yielded days
Your stripes are dark like waves on sand
Reflected at your toes, my hand
The ties gone numb have sodden spoiled
And in the breathless heat they boiled
A leather for the cords to wear
And ash becomes the ones you bear
But one whom seems to stay the end
Come, and ask what I intend

But no one had reveled it to me
Deep inside me there was peace
but no one had revealed it to me
Now, the time has come
where you have set me free
From the feeling of greed
Just by being in connection to him
while walking on the street
You took my hand to greet
And then I knew how to live
while holding you inside me.
