He left during the winter
and she sits where he used to
watching the setting sun
bring cold days to their end.

she drowns herself,

Known what it is like
To pull my belt
One notch tighter
Yet I know I can survive
Through tough times
See the other side
Maybe become a little stronger
As a result
But there is a hunger
Food cannot cure
It arises in the heart
I see brief glimpses
Happiness and love
As I walk at times
Yet I also see
The other side of it
Not so pleasant
As a couple
Walks apart from
And I wonder
What is the cure
To this eternal hunger?
And can it ever

Knowing that being with me
Will clip your wings.
I can't live knowing

It's okay, you can't see,
I'm trying to cope,
without you and me.
I can't stop crying,
It's okay, you don't care,
I know you'll sleep soundly,
Now I am not there.
I want to go away,
It's okay, you won't worry,
At least I am someone
You can forget in a hurry...
I'm broken again, don't worry it's okay...
Walking away, I guess it's a game that you play...
I'll try to recover and grow on my own,
And try to believe in the love you once shown...

but only after you have fallen
asleep. in the morning
I am the swallow singing outside
of your frosted windowpane
and when I slip away on a streak
of moonlight you remain all around me,
my slowly blinking satellite.
just when I think I am secluded
in my own constellations,
you scoop me up in the Little Dipper,
skate me across Orion’s belt and up --
Up on Pegasus’s wings -- black curtain
of night parted like your lips.
and then there are
the little things, but let us not discuss
windswept hair and sun-strewn
eyes and celestial fingers
and such. after all, I am already
over the moon.

i fell in love with loneliness.
i thought it made me strong.
i fell in love with each and every moment
because i thought it made me beautiful.
i fell in love with weakness because
i thought it made me real, and human.
i fell in love, i fell in love, i fell in love;
is it any real surprise i fell in love with you?
but you make me nothing.
you make me forget everything
that i used to be, and everything i am.
you've made yourself matter to me
and i don't think you understand
how big a mistake that was.
you and i are not poetry,
and together we are not art.
you refuse to be an artist,
so where does that leave us?
i become the storyteller,
you the story,
and suddenly i am as god,
always in the picture but
give me a camera
so i can fall in love with myself
and make myself a protagonist for once.
Who We AreMy name is not important.Who We Are3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It does not define who I am.
My weight, my age, it’s not to enchant.
Whether I’m a sir, or a ma’am.
My choices in life,
should not affect yours.
Whether I choose a husband, or wife,
should not start wars.
My mother tongue,
is a language in many.
It does not affect the air in my lung,
It does not disturb any.
But for some reason it does.
For some reason, we choose to judge.
Who I care for, is not the daily buzz.
Who I truly am, is not who you prejudge.
If I’m religious or not,
If I believe in human rights,
should not get you tied in a knot.
That’s psychological smite.
Who I am, what I believe and whom I love,
Should not matter to you.
So these things, you can’t try to get rid of.
What should matter to you is what is true.
So, who are you?

Screaming out our lungs in fears
Possession of the animatronics
Making anxiety loose without tonics
A very late midnight job
Annihilated by a strange mob
Every look and every stare
Responded with a single glare
Now I’m currently isolated inside
All those times where we cuss and hide
You think everything has ended in scraps?
Prepared to be shocked by my traps
In Five Nights at Freddy’s 3
I’ll be sure to kill and be free
Owning your own pitiful soul
And burning you in night 5
In this psychological game
Makes your every effort lame
And once I capture you
It’ll be my own cue
All those sufferings that stabbed inside
Breaking all my bones and pride
Leaving me in this eternal nightmare
Nothing is going to be this fair
Do I really regret what I did?
Putting your own soul as a bid
Feeling lethargic and despair
Covering with a single stare
Ah this is no use after all
Killing all those kids as my toll

Is this conversation part of some aesthetic? Young and nihilistic; I guess the contrast is ironic
You said "You're so altruistic"
I said "I've got to make up for how shit everyone else is"
but I think it's just a ploy, because I know that I'm no better
And I don't know which of us I'm trying to assure
Day drink, and trip on acid, if that's what you're really interested in
I'm sure the cocaine and Ritalin will just make you more attractive to them
Are these friendships just in virtue of mutual addictions? Or is there really something deeper that's holding us together?
I'm not exactly sure what I have to offer. I'll never have a pack to share, or a working lighter
Maybe we just click; we're fucking wrecks on all the same days
I guess the synchrony is not all that unusual for people who are broken in so many places

Constantly I desire to be near you any way I can
Time is a foe we must face if we are to have a future
So many times I have wanted to throw caution into the wind
If only you needed me as much as I need you
I want to see you
I want to hear your voice.
I want to steal you away from everything so you are mine alone
I don't want to compete for your attention
I want to be your whole world
Instead I shall throw away everything to be with you
I will wait the dreary and impossibly slow time
I won't jump the gun
I won't randomly show up on your doorstep
It doesn't mean that I like waiting
It shows my resolve to go by the rules
What I really want is to runaway with you
For us to belong to each other and no one else
I want you to need me as much as I need you
I wait with bated breath for you
Need to hear from you courses through me
If only I could control time.......

Because counting your days will
Not result in eternity,
But I never realized that you
Had wanted me to look to the sky,
Because you also told me that
The stars are spirits, of those gone,
But not forgotten,
And though stars can die too,
You told me not to worry.
You put the 'star' in 'start again',
And the death of a star makes way for
So many more.
And I will never forget you.

For as strong a swimmer as I am -

No matter how it warms me inside
You only distract me from fighting for own life.

When I'm quiet I am always trying to say what I'm feeling,
but I can't because words don't come to my mouth as easily anymore,
and thoughts don't convey as easily anymore.
I can't just say,

I have to think,
"what are you to me?

We are the lost souls,
We are the ones,
smoking cigarettes under the overpass,
taking hits of anything we can get our hands on.
we are worth more than we think,
but never daring to believe it.
We are the ones,
the world has given up on,
the ones being dragged through hell,
being told we are never alone,
but the only ones with us,
are the ones dragging us,
through the miles of broken glass,
with every word,
making one more shard shear itself through our skin,
told we are worthless,
and soaking in the words like a sponge,
and we sigh,
at the relief it brings,
our deepest belief,

You make me live, and are the only peace that my heart has. I've only told you about one of the three, and you are the fourth. The one that I told you about was the one that hurt the most. But even that's a lie. The one that hurts the most is you. If only I could tell you. If only you would feel the same about me. I love you and I need you and I can't keep living without you.

If you ever need a friend

We are programed like drones to explain, explain, and explain. Our answers must always tell the reason, the explanation to our ideas, it must tell you why. We are told everyone must do this, but it is a lie, if I question an adult or ayone with the smallest of authority, they say 'because' and nothing else or it is because hey said so. As if their answer is correct because they are older than me, as if age was the same as expirience, maturity or being wise. We are never told WHY we must explain our answers because the response to the question is because we told you or we said so. As if the entire world uses this rule it never comes into play. Never will I nor anyone else be giving examples explaining and expanding on the subject, with out being told we are babbling on or talking to much. I ask you and all the others "Why must I ask why?

stuck in a jar
with sanguine jelly from my fingers
that taste unfamiliar;
raining down—shivering from the frost,
creeping underneath the sand,
jutting through the bone,
once mistaken for clay.
melting clock—where was it?
twisting through the fog
and bringing forth unfamiliar clouds
that thunder above my skull.
eating fairytales about my home,
but when the pages flip through too fast
and my mother turns her head away,
fingers poke through my mouth,
bringing everything back.
