It rises up to my throat and makes me feel sick,
How dare you?!
I never knew you could hate someone with every fiber of your being and never meet them,
You broke her!!
She is nothing but a lost soul!
She is lost!
She can only be found by herself,
You said all the right things so I withheld judgement,
And then you hit strike,
I begged her to leave,
But you already trapped my beautiful butterfly you little shop of horrors,
I must sit here and do nothing,
She inhales the smoke and drinks the poison you give her all night long,
But I am powerless against you,
You are the worst nightmare I have ever faced,
My beautiful unicorn was going to heal and live a success story,
She was going to be a survivor,
She was supposed to make it,
You're the asshole that destroyed her and our dreams for her,
You clipped her wings!
In all this anger I remember,
This isn't my fight,
This isn't my path to walk,
I can only be the lantern to light her way,
I can be the

im lost im lost im lost
and i dont know what else to do but
like the stars i used to wish on
that it would get better
i tried so hard
to forget that i am sad
to forget that it was by
to forget that i had devoted
upon years of life
and we crashed
and i cannot count the casualties
nor my own losses
and i never thought
not even for a moment
that you would be the one
to build me
yet b r e a k me
if it makes it better
i will forget
i will fade
and paint myself out
i will go away
and move miles
from all this
and not come back to you
i want to forget
i want to go away
i am not ready
to face reality
so i will keep peering
hoping to find a different
where i could hide
and i am lost
without your monochrome glow
and your solemn smile
i will never trust again
if we cannot mend
that once tied us
but i dont know
how to make knots
that wont slip

Looking flawless like Beonyce.
Or a nice ass like Nikki
The body of Rhiana.
Or a bad bitch like Iggy.
They are always called
Yet I don't see what makes them a beauty.
In society flaws are never expected.
Now a days all we see is perfection.
At first it is great.
Next it is brilliant.
Once you reach the masterpiece, you start to receive the billions.
We all resort make up to make us look.
Ladies go to a bar so men can blow the cheddar.
Trying to make yourself stand out from the rest.
When the truth of it is you're another ugly piece of flesh.
Now we have ways to make us look skinny.
Corsets work well, that works plenty.
You got men saying "I wanna tap that."
When underneath that corset is nothing but fat.
When you look in the mirror is all you see gore?
But when you enter the room you who everyone adores.
You are the next big thing that people want more.
But in few eyes we know you're a whore.

I'm always there when you feel lonely, yet you say you just wanted it
I'm always there when you got hurt, yet you decline my help
I'm always there when the world is against you, yet you never notice me...
I'm always there, always, yet...you never say hi to me....
I'm always there...why can't you see me, even if you're not trying?..

Your in for a scare.
If ye dare go in
Ye will be a sin

For ages to come

Away from the world
Ye will grow old,
Wither and curled.

to all ye has missed.
from loved to being alone,
ye shall be lonely til ye is all bone.
i tell ye not of your fate's design,
then i shall be faltering my own assign.

to break the locks mine heart did lye.
to break them is a fool's choice,
cuz' in my heart they shall
never here ye voice.
so if ye try to pull someting,
i promise ye, it shall be hell i bring,
to ye and all ye family to come,
i will make sure that all ye scum,
will be haunted from thy death of me,
that mine soul will never be set free.
til death, i shall remain in solitude,
but if ye disturb me, that is rude,
so before ye try to love me,
first ye must ask for the key,
and if ye hates what ye sees,
then bring me down easy, please.
i have be so alone for year

Lost YouthLost YouthLost Youth2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Smooth skin and brimming spirits.
Through endless fields and open seas you roamed.
For a child, everywhere was a playground.
Then you get older and skin begins to firm, your energy trickles to little.
The couch or your work desk becomes your domain.
For hours and hours you sit, staring at a screen, imagination turning to logic.
And as you sit old and weary, you recall your lost youth.
Why?Is there something wrong with me?Why?2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Why is my head racing in a hundred directions?
Is it just the weight of responsibilities on my shoulder?
I'm not Atlas.
I never was.
Maybe it's you who is causing these troubles.

For the BetterTimes Change...For the Better2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I've done it once,
I've gone through the night,
With nothing but tears,
And a dim light.
All these fights, all these promises,
Made in my mind,
They're all gone,
Eroded by time.
Looking back at those days,
Made my eyes begin to swell,
I feel the pain now,
Am I dammed to hell?
I just want to be free,
Living with happiness and glee,
But until it's gone,
I can no longer be me.
I thought those days were over,
I thought it was okay,
I guess I was wrong,
More life to decay.
I feel so tired, so empty,
So shallow at tide,
What once was love,
Is now shattered in my mind.
I've cried much,
It gets hard to breathe,
My heart feels shallow,
and my lungs start to heave.
It crumbles in my head,
As I sit in my bed,
The desicions I've made,
Bought me to this day.
I just want to see the sun,
That I wouldn't mind,
But until that glorious day,
Until my burning light arrives.
I will sit in the corner,
Thinking about my thoughts,
Try to gather myself,
And glue what's lost.

FeelingsWhat is your mind if you can't decide?Feelings2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
What is this feeling deep inside?
Crazy feelings and wandering thoughts,
This world is a strange thing of sorts.
Round and round your feelings go,
Pain is something everyone knows,
Actions that send your heart into madness,
You should know not to love without knowing sadness.
Happiness is such a beautiful thing,
Laughter and friends what smiles they bring,
A gift to keep forever my friend,
So please don't let my happiness end.
Darkest DaysThese are the darkest days I have ever endured,Darkest Days2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
My heart is slowly seeping as reality hits
Like a suckerpunch I'm gasping for breath
There's a pain welling inside me I cannot ignore.
A slow realisation that the hopes and the dreams,
The life I have lived for more than a decade
Is coming to an end and like a juggernaut
Its riding over me and I'm tearing at the seams.
There's a constant noise inside so maddening,
I cannot comprehend the words you are saying
Its too late to go back I've come undone
These feelings so mixed, I'm drowning.
Here I am now at the end of it all,
The man that I once was has been devoured
I stare into the abyss and say out loud
"I am not afraid and I will stand tall"

And never come near me.
I've foreseen too much
Too much for you handle.
There is a war between me and myself and I.
And with every retort, I groan in pain;
My veins stiffen, I cringe.
You might want to step away.
You might get hurt.

Es heißt ein gesprochenes Wort hat die Macht die Welt zu verändern.
Was du gesagt hast, kannst du nicht mehr zurückholen.
Das gesprochene Wort hat eine Schwingung.
Es ist frei, es schwingt, es verändert...
Was ist mit der Schwingung des gedachten Wortes?

Des gelesenen Wortes?

Wo fängt es an, wo hört es auf?

Wann muss ich beginnen mich zu fürchten?

UntitledWhen I was tenUntitled3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I watched my grandfather pass away like a slow fade in August
Just twenty seven days before my eleventh year
She asked me what that felt like
I tell her
Not a thing like this
I've known enough death in my life to know a few things.
I know the 5 stages of grief,
Like lines in a Shakespeare comedy
They are sarcasm and gibberish and slapstick to me
It always feels like there’s a punchline and everybody knows it but me
But, maybe that’s just the pain in my gut from the loss
It just feels like I can't even breathe and
I know that even though it doesn't feel like it,
And it doesn't matter now, the
Sun will rise in the morning and set in the evening, and they will still be gone
It’s amazing how this world will never cease to turn
Even though yours is in a dead freeze and
You find yourself asking questions no one can know the answers to
Like how can I just go to work and pretend to be ok?
How am I supposed to pull myself out of bed in the morning and try to kee

To hell with right and wrong
I know this day
I cannot change
instead I'll write a song
How do you choose
of moral obligation
of choosing deeds
from selfish needs
this is my complication
You know I understand
I know your words are true
but in my heart
and in my mind
all I want is you
I know my words are spoken
these promises I've kept unbroken
but if I may
I'm not the same
and somehow I'm still true
How to cement
in words, this jaded soul
I can't express
I must repress
and try to fill this hole
Because my heart is bleeding
I'll sew up this open chest
I'll hide away
This jealous pain
and fake that I'm not needing
To hell with all my feelings
To hell with wrong and right
I know this may
Come off as strange
but I need you in my life
How do you choose
of heartfelt adoration
of choosing heed
from selfish need
I've found a new frustration
You know I understand
I know your words are true
but in my heart

Keep your head down,
Don’t turn around.
You’ve every reason to frown.
For we’re all bound
To end in the ground,
Beneath a mound
Of the soil we once tread.
From the moment we take in our first breath,
We begin to die.
We are simply characters in one big story,
So ditch that idea of the ‘morning glory.’
They tell us to live
And not just exist,
But that’s not a possibility
When you’re stuck in the mist.
Relax, they say.
But every breath you take
Is one breath closer to death.
So breathe in every joke
Until you begin to choke.
And inhale those good words
Until you exhale the bad
And it leaves a bitter taste on your tongue,
Like that of the rust that has covered your joints.
Sniff in those you love
Until you sigh out their hatred
And a wretched smell is stuck
Lingering in your nostrils
Like the vinegar you mistook for vodka
That was meant to numb your pain.
Absorb every touch,

Or can she truly see
My skin tone, my kinky hair
what makes me.. really me?
Is the fact that I'm black
Is my every single action an act
of violence or hatred for my fellow man
or can that statement I retract?
Can I fit outside
a created stereotype
can I be myself and remember my roots
can my race and the world, call a truce
My skin may be different but my organs the same
I didn't pick my ancestry, so choice isn't too blame
Can I turn back time... can I change my race
just do in this world I can have a chance.. a better place?
Tragedy Prt1It's a tragedy the way it all went down,Tragedy Prt13 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
he took your soul away from you
now you don't even smile,
It's like he kissed your lips
and took your life away.
I remember it all started on a Friday,
you wanted to stay home with him
and he wanted to hang out with his boys,
he slapped you,
and pushed you,
you told you not to make anouther noise,
you thought that was it,
he apologized and gave you a kiss.
The next day he bought you flowers,
then the phone rang,
it was a wrong number,
he didn't believe it,
he even accused you of cheating,
he threw your flowers to the ground,
punched you in the face,
and pushed you down,
he called you a B***h,
he said, "stop lying trick
and shut the f**k up!"
The phone rang again
and confirmed it was the wrong number.
"I'm sorry" he said
kissed your lips and carried you to bed.
That night you had sex,
there was no love involved,
you thought to yourself
that this was a problem you had to solve.
The next day had came,
you tried your best not to do

BoyfriendI've never known someone could like meBoyfriend4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I'd never thought of myself as someone's girlfriend
But now in your arms there is no other place I'd imagine being
I feel at home and happy
I've never thought of myself as likable in that way
You make me feel special
With the looks and the moments we share
You make me lose my mind
I can't remember any specific thing about when I'm with you
All I recall is pure joy
You are one of the best things that have happened to me
You make everything seem happier
You make the world glow
All I need are your words
And my fears dim
You are the light of my life

This poem also doesn't really have a rhyming format, and the stanzas are a mess but I don't care so yeah, enjoy, or not, up to you.
They asked me to explian
And I'm tired enough to reveal my pain
And as I'm speaking,
A thought runs through my head
Do they even care
They wouldn't notice if I'm dead.
Who are these people
That say they're my friend
No its friendship that'll burn in the end
I start to trail off,
Words becoming droned
They don't notice, too drawn to their phones
They aren't next to me anymore.
The people I see now,
Are the ones I used to adore
The ones left behind
But struggle to keep a place in my mind

And she wants to know the difference
But when she goes there she knows
That the stores are all closed
But through that she can get what she came for
I'll trying to help her
There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
Cause sometimes words can have two meanings
In tree by the brook
An angel comes down
She sings to her
Sometimes our thoughts can be misleading
So it makes me wonder
There's a feeling she gets
When she looks to the west
And her spirit is crying for freedom
In her thoughts
She brings the smoke from the trees
And awe to those who see the light from within her
It makes me wonder
Her whisper soothes those to ask for it
But she is reluctant to touch
Because she can't feel the warmth of those who take her hand
But a new day will dawn
For those who stay long
To see the sun that will rise again
It really makes me wonder
If there's a fork in your road
But in the long run
There's always time to change the road your on
