Who am I?Me?Who am I?6 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
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
Just a DreamA week after he turn twenty threeJust a Dream8 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
My fairy tale story had ended
The temporarily fantasy was over
He was perfect
Loved ones approved of him
I thought he was it
I never doubted him
No more tears
No more hiding
No more lies
But all was suddenly taken away from me
He stopped being there
No given reason
I shrugged it off easy
My mind said let it go
But my heart says suspicious
He then didn't come
How could this happened?
What did I do?
I said too much?
Did he not believe in us anymore?
He's not coming home
This can't be happening to me
For this is just a dream

What Love Has DoneTwo years ago, when I was far more naïve, I fell in love. Honestly, it was for a reason my interest probably thought was stupid.What Love Has Done17 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I saw something in them that I had never seen before. It wasn’t something like “Oh, you have the most beautiful soul I’ve seen in any human being,” it was something…
Something that compelled me to wish for a way to fix it.
To fix them.
For these two years, I made my attempts, and during the year they were around, I got pushed away.
The other year, I didn’t see them at all. Well, no, that’s a lie. I saw them once in a place I don’t think either of us ever imagined I’d be. Because of how they retaliated in the first year, I refused to believe any of the things they said to me. The words that I so badly wanted to see pass their lips became knives sharper than the ones that used to sink into me.
I held my tongue and bore
Today.Listen to what I say today,Today.21 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
For what I speak is true,
Your troubles will not fade away,
Unless you work them through,
Although at times life feels a mess,
It's really not so bad,
Remember your accomplishments,
The good days that you've had,
For what it all comes down to,
Is that time is ticking fast,
There is no way to change what's done,
You can't dwell on the past,
Of course bad times will come again,
Things won't always go your way,
But concentrate on what's important,
The here, the now, today.

When he told me his name two months after arriving new to the class whilst smiling that crooked tooth grin at me I swear I felt somethin' close to it.
I don't know what love is honey, but let me tell ya,
When I kissed his cheek after he walked me to my next class and made his face light up like fireworks at DisneyLand I swear I felt somethin' close to it.
I don't know what love is honey, but let me tell ya,
When he blushed every color of pink on the color spectrum from his cheeks to his ears when he asked me out I swear I felt somethin' close to it.
I don't know what love is honey, but let me tell ya,
His tongue was heaven and hel

Is it to much to save the whole world, or am I two small.
There is no people's hero, I think i'll be one.
like a girl who feeds the homeless or stops muggings.
armed with only sandwiches and peeper spray.
if people go mad for not saving one person,
what will they do if it is hundred thousands.
so i think I'll save the ones who need to be happy.
I'll leave the world to the ones who can handle it.
so I'll save you and my friends, help the old guy rake his lawn.
I'll put a twenty in the homeless man's jar.
all i have to do is where a mask and wig.
"woman dressed as hero helps the poor and saves people being mugged".
i don't want a national scale, if I'm on the local news I'll be flattered.
so here i am dreaming.
maybe I'll do this someday.
PresentOut of all that I writePresent1 day ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I can only make sad songs
that's my hubris, I'ma lose it
late nights still stuck on the past
can't wait for a Christmas present
man, right now that would be Heaven
but it's too far in the future
guess I'm ahead of my time
maybe that's why I can't rhyme
and when I rap the sad songs
all I can do is whine
I guess I'm all shook up
like a coconut with lime
Soul SearchingSoul SearchingSoul Searching2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We forage into the unknown
mapping the dips and hallows of each other’s forms
drawing gasps and strained sounds
from crevices in opulent flesh
Our souls wink at each other in the blackness
peeking out from underneath the surfaces that trap them
wicked and glittering
drawn forth from within us to surround us
with their sultry warmth
The inversion creates delicious tension
that climbs and crescendos
until they surge up our scintillating spines
only to suddenly drop back into our centers
hot and heavy with an ephemeral gravity
Your sweet whispers
rush on wings of baited breath
to hang heavily between us in the dark
collecting dew from our intermingled moist bodies
Once high pitched in their feverish, fervent movement
they now lay limp and languid
luxuriating in the low lamp light
that encloses us like a cocoon
But we are content to stay there
wool gathering and drifting into other states of consciousness
while wrapped in one another’s sticky and sweat slicked sk
You've Gone Far EnoughHow many times have you tried, just to put me down,You've Gone Far Enough2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The last time I remember, I was underground.
And even then I rose up, just to challenge the greats.
You might be thinking that your wins are all a part of your fate;
But it's not!
You're a little puppet in the game,
And when you try to take me out, you'll be feeling the strain!
I will be breathing down your neck and it's offense;
No nonsense. I am the Word of Chen, execution commence!
And now you're feeling the pressure, I'll make you suffer;
Your words try to cut me, but you're bleeding your brother!
You don't recognize that I'm the one who paved your way;
And now you're crying, sweating bullets, while you kneel and pray-
I don't find you. You're scared! Your soul is bared,
The only thing that makes us different is the fact that I cared!
But it don't matter now boy! You can laugh and smile,
Because the only thing left is to burn you in a Word of Chen style.

Hard time make you strongerI grow up chearing on the underdogHard time make you stronger2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Because I know how it fells
I locked up my heart
So it doesn't get broken
People keep saying " icnore them
it didn't work
After a while I stoped careing
Careing about what other said
I just said " im fine" when anyone asked
Drowned my emotions in music and art
But there was something inside me that made keep trying despite everyone that told me to quit
And even thou time may be thouge now it only going to make you stronger in the end
So do your best in everything you do art, music, sports ect

poem of the darki am lost in the dark blinded and boundpoem of the dark2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
i can't feel any human presents nor any human sound
i don't know how long i have been trapped here
yet i never once shed a single tear
i don't know, when, where, what, who, how or why
i can't move i can't see i can't speak i can't cry
but i know there is something that is keeping me alive
and even when its around a don't resist or writhe
it whispers to me in my ear
the only thing that i can hear
"you are safe here and i know its true
no one can communicate, travel or find you"
it seems to enjoy my helplessness and profanity
with its help i have killed the last of my sanity
even if this place is my safe haven my Noah's ark
i will forever be lost and bound in the dark
Jig-sawMistakes, made by many,Jig-saw2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Are seldom acknowledged in
A suitable fashion that allows
Something craved so much- forgiveness.
Along the way ‘I love you’ became
A warm sweatshirt. Something
to wrap around you while sitting
By the fire, but oh! You better keep
The curtains pulled to the storm outside.
‘You’re mine’ was a bomb shelter.
Safe and sturdy all around you, but
you can still hear those bombs drop.
‘I’m sorry’ not dissimilar to the sound
the gun makes at the same
Time you feel the bullet enter. No fire
Is friendly fire. And when we come together
I see fireworks that make no sound.
Yet nothing is louder than my tears on paper
In the presence of new information. While I
see nothing but a blur.
Even though I am rebroken, remade
Like a jigsaw, I still fit perfectly in your arms.
And I guess I’m just happy you hand me the
Glue every time a piece of me falls to the floor.
HerO, how vexed she is,Her2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Her eye it lands on you.
Never straying. Sentient
In it’s perception of your emotion.
The tears tear jagged, translucent
Cracks in anothers facade.
Nothing is better than just good enough,
But nothing is good enough for you.
In all that could have been dances an ember.
The beauty of watching, waiting.
Will it catch alight? A life renewed,
Or will it extinguish. It’s hard to distinguish
The spark from the dark.
It glows to the rhythm of your pulse.
It quickens with each deception
And lays there constant as I in your arms.
Your perilous perfection was
My biggest downfall.
Actions which belie words
Steal me from myself.
Truth came too late
From the lips of a liar.

A vivid dreamAs I sat in my room, the clock was nearing midnightA vivid dream3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A grim realization dawned upon me; this night
I shall not sleep, for my mind
is the kind that races
and paces, around and around
if left unattended
And sadly I forgot to keep it in check
So began my mind's long and uncontrolled trek
I thought about trees, bees and the sky
And about the fact that we all live and die
I wondered about the sound of the fox
And gave some thought to the origins of rocks
My mind's eye sailed, and saw wooden docks
And tried to figure out how we have dogs
I thought about you, and
the fact, that maybe it's true
when my mind whispers
"I love you"
It makes me wonder:
I Used To Have A ReasonI used to have a reason to do what I do,I Used To Have A Reason3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Now it is just a habit I am trying to get through,
Meaningless motions, without emotions,
Trying to keep a clean conscience.
Embracing the darkness in the dim light,
I do not think I will sleep another night,
It is 4 AM, and there is no meaning,
To feel what I used to be feeling.
The pen slides through snow white paper,
It cuts it in two like a sharp saber,
But what is the point of doing this all
If It feels empty just like this Fall?
To fill the void I leave to fate,
There is no love, there is no hate
For times have changed.
Sex crimesTwo steps from you a woman ingests fowl wordsSex crimes3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Offered for free by a troubled mind
Who in her sex finds a deep crime.
It is right here, so close to us,
This violence against the kin of Venus
Girlfriend and mother,
Sister, daughter, lover.
So close to you, so close to me
That I wish I had 1000 eyes to see
The danger far ahead and to avoid
The words that bruise one so
The touch that violates my womanhood.
Protect me, please, protect her too,
Speak up, disclose the aggressor
The Animal WithinIt breaths cold as iceThe Animal Within3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
you hear it getting closer
step by step
there it is!
Watch out the fangs!
They grip into your neck,
tearing your veins apart
just to see the blood flow
out and far
Vengeance, deep red
it will catch you,
eventually, you can't hide forever
you destiny of a prey
The wild animal finds you
it smells your tracks
you can't disquise
This is what you did to me!
Soon, you will lay on the cool ground
paralysed from fear, begging for mercy
that you never gave
This is what you deserve.
One way or another,
you drink your poison
and the wild animal is tamed.
It shall finally fall asleep,
in it soundes dreams,
it breaths warmly
and rests calmly.
I moved.I remember the day he died so clearly in my head.I moved.3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I was on the phone to my friend and i could hear my mother shouting,
"This isn't right."
"This can't be right."
"Tell me it's not true."
Then the screaming came,
and i felt my stomach drop, something was wrong.
But when i stepped outside,
Everything was fine.
The sun was still shining,
wind still blowing.
Then those words,
Thats all i heard over the screaming and the crying and suddenly it wasn't so perfect,
I couldn't hear,
I couldn't breathe,
i could barely see.
Yet i moved.
I moved to comfort my mother whose screams i could no longer hear,
because she didn't need me.
She needed him.
We all did.
We all do.
And although my legs still shake and my eyes are stained with black rings.
I still move,
And i still see.
Ever since that day,
despite what they said and what they told me,
I never stopped moving
My Pain Begets Blasphemy.All I ever wanted was to fix this fucking worldMy Pain Begets Blasphemy.3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Or watch it burn and find a better one instead
But I'm scared that I won't find another lucky world
Too sad alive too scared to die until I'm dead
I dreamed of fresh green, a sex queen, to get my stress cleaned
Off the rusted dirty gears of my mind, and be a sex fiend
Walk streets like a whore, nothing more, not the chore
Of offering my body up to bitches like a store, no
I was just interested in escaping into a life like a porno
Eating up hash mashed brownies like Digiorno
Cause the kid in me got fucked but the man in me didn't
Intellectually and sexually, respectively the difference
Cause I seen my dreams perverted when I don't believe in anything
Cause honestly you honesty made me believe in better things
But now it just feels like a crime when they look at you
I wanna tell em all "scram before I throw this fucking hook at you"
To me, you're not a prospect for someone to be booking you
You're not meat or object, so who the fuck should
