The GardeniasI told you I had wildflowers growing in my veinsThe Gardenias19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
and you thought it was quaint,
so when I took shears to my jugular -
you wouldn’t help me cut them out.
You thought I’d be opheliac
if they bloomed, splashing white
into my already paling wrists.
Maybe you thought the perfume would purify me
and being a tragic heroine
would be better than just being tragic.
Their roots choked out my heart and
to my blood
as I died,
drowning in the after-effects of Pretty,
all I could hear
was you telling me that you loved
that I had Gardenias in my eyes.
TragedyShe wrote a love song on the bathroom wall.Tragedy16 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Cracked walls and broken windows surrounded her poem.
The silence is met like a secret lover.
She stared at her words,
all black and sharp,
and thought – maybe I’ll get it right next time.
Her blood pulsed through her with anger and pain.
Raw and real,
too late to change.
How did it died?
That love of mine?
A tragedy of a broken heart and a shattered, misused trust.
The rain beggarWhen you won't be here,The rain beggar2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'll want it to rain.
The smoke will disappear,
The wind will put a strain,
The grass will be soft enough,
To lie on it wont be tough,
Now that i'm pierced by the grain.
But there's no cloud up here.
The smoky wind doesn't have a care,
Here are the fiery days of Aine...
When you won't be here,
My urges the cloud wont hear,
I'll want it,i'll beg it to rain...
I'll want it,but i'll want it in vain.

Like a doll no more needed
All of her feelings
Don't have access to her
And just as she's on the verge
She is needed.
Someone out there
is bleeding, too
A bond so frail
yet so real
It never leaves her truly alone.

i want to tell you...
that i’m bisexual
that i fawn over girls along with boys
it would feel wonderful to come out to someone in my family
someone that i am close to
and that i live with
i feel that you would accept it the easiest
but then, i am also terrified
what if you were to start trying me differently?
i mean, i know that you would still love as my brother
i don’t want you to think bad thoughts
could she really be bi?
she’s just looking for attention…
she’s been spending too much time on tumblr…
i want to tell you
to at least get it out to someone in person
but i’m scared
where would i even begin?

you've been-- i am the

wasting your time trying

and i'm sick of wasting
my time because i spend it
doing math while you are
wasting away, somehow-
i wish you were here, oh,
it feels like i've been
asleep for years in this
pouring rain and it feels
like i am the setting sun
even as i pour cup after

said he saved me, but im

Her CreationEach breath of hers wasHer Creation1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
a beautiful refusal to be anything less than infinite.*
Deeply she inhaled, taking in stardust and exhaling impromptu
galaxies, as a reminder to herself to take in the building blocks of her being,
bereft of pattern, and tesselate them into space: such is the
electrifying, intoxicating complexity that is life.

who's petals you plucked
"she loves me...
she loves me not..."
knowing damn well
what the answer would be
-I only bloomed for you-
when the final petal fell-
"She loves me!"-
you left me there.
Cold, torn apart, crushed
and slowly curling into nothingness
I stared at my withered petals-
I couldn't bear to
"love you not."

I see you in my mind
It's been a few years
Since you've been here
The last time I saw you
You were nothing but a corpse
On your way to Heaven as your body was burned
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
God I wish you could look at how things came to be
Here I am, in my room
Writing a stupid poem all about you
I'm finally here
Living with my dad
But everything has changed since you left
Things have gotten harder
Depression, anxiety, and rage have gotten stronger
For all the years I've lived, I've been tortured and with you gone I feel so alone...
I almost wanna join you
I'm giving you a moment of silence
A tribute just for you
I love you
I miss you
We kept each other alive and sane
God I wish you were here
My brother of mine
Others never talk about you
It's like they're trying to forget you
But not a day goes by
When you cross my mind
When I walk past your bedroom and see it's dad's new study
I always look at your furnace
I picked it just for you
Do you love me?
Do you miss me?

just one more way to misbehave
it's in the stitches of your flannel
it's on the bitches you've manhandled

(and yes, you still are)
i went down the list
of everything i want and
i’ve already done it all.
it seems, in the short
distance between your
house and mine, there are
a thousand littered memories
of french kissing devils
from the back of my teeth,
picnic blankets and of
replacing my pains with
many more agonies.
in the small distance
this horrid town spans
i have managed to carve
our initials in every tree;
i’ve done it all with you
and remember it, too,
despite my adamant trying
to be rid of the taste.
and now you see me
from across the room
but i’ve been ignoring your
scent since you first arrived.
you smile because nothing
has changed for you -
your hair is a few inches
longer than i had liked it;
your face is cleaner and
eyes much less tired. but me,
my skin had grown
accustomed to you,
so it is different now
and every cell is working
not to care. it is an
to keep my hand from
taking yours, now.

Long Lost MemorySometimes I sit and wonderLong Lost Memory7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
About how you are
Then I remember I'm a long lost memory
Hidden deep within your mind
One that you have blocked out
One you wish you could forget
But I'm over here thinking of you
No alcohol can get rid of the thoughts
I know that I'm over you
I have been for a while
But I'll always have a spot for you
Right inside my heart
You were my first love
You were the one I trusted most
When I couldn't even let others in
And you were my best friend
I listen to our song sometimes
And I start to feel the pain
Of not knowing how you've been
Of not having you around
There's still times I want to run to you
And tell you about my day
But then I remember once again
That you are no longer there
And I wish you could know I'm sorry
For everything we went through
For all the pain I put on you
For the way it all ended
I'm a long lost memory to you
But to me you're more than a memory
Sometimes I wish I could forget you
But if I never knew you I wouldn't be the same.

my heart was broken in two.
It's all your fault,
it's all my fault
It's really no ones fault.
You didn't mean it, I know
but I can't help the hurt.
I didn't think I could love so,
and be hurt so.
It never phased me before
then you came over
and told me not to worry,
you were just being an idiot.
I still can't believe
you have such nerve to do that
when you know
I have been broken
many times before
and yours was going to leave me sore.
I miss you too much,
I'm sorry I'm just not good enough.
Maybe leaving me was right
and exploring all right.
I don't like doing that
and I don't want
to give you up
but it looks like I might have to.
Broken PeopleWe live in a world with broken peopleBroken People15 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Some see them and some don't
We row down the stream of life
Only to wave at those who drown in life's bitter sea
We say we feel sorry, but yet what does that entail?
That you wish to switch situations?
Or that you wish to help?
We act as though its too late for them
Casting them out, only giving them apologies
Pain comes to my heart to know that these are the lucky ones
The broken that get words
For the other broken,they get cast out
Looked down upon by all
Told to never be like them, to be better
How is this so?
We live our lives and tribulations hit us
Each different from the last
Those who are sinking in this river are therefore lost?
How can this be?
Water hasn't even entered their lungs
We degrade them as animals
No one sees the pain an suffering
Only the substance that they use
The violence that approaches them
When others rise to shine light in this dark corner
We still see neglect, ignoring the situation
Blaming them for not getting

You see I've given up on my desire and sorrow
Take them all, my last hope my prayer my tomorrow
Because even myself I've no strength to follow
Because she's exhausted me of joy and happiness I'm hollow
So bid me hello my truest friend
that my wound may mend
And my blood stop and my tears dry or maybe I just pretend
That all is good, all is well
Even though through hell
I'll wave and smile
All is well.

ExistUs two souls drifting through space.Exist18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's so cold and so very lonely.
We both have gotten too close in our search of warmth,
we have both been burned up and worn down.
We have both tried to follow in our circles,
we have both have been thrown out of our comfy orbits,
to face the desolate expanse in solitary.
Us two heavenly bodies,
we began floating alone,
the universe stirred and spun,
and somehow... Somehow...
We found each other.
We got caught in one another's gravity,
growing closer and closer,
we found our new orbit,
our own spark of heat,
and so life began.
It is no longer cold and lonely.
One by one the stars could burn out,
and it wouldn't matter,
as long as you're here...
As long as we are together,
our existence is a full, and bright one.
I understand said existence isn't forever,
but will you please...
Exist... By my side?
Until neither of us can exist any more?

Hold myself high
And one day I'll know
