You've only missed
A few days of school,
But you missed
An entire chapter in math,
And a couple short stories in English.
I know you've been gone a lot,
And you've never had a problem
With catching back up,
But I worry about you
And in this worrying,
I worry you'll fall behind,
And I worry you won't be happy
And won't want to spend time
So don't fall behind,
And come back to school
Lust or Love?How can one perceive the difference between lust and love?Lust or Love?1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Society challenges youth with this difficult question,
leaving them on their own to discover
if they have the capability to
distinguish between the two.
We’re thought at an early age that
sex symbolizes love.
But what is one to do when
sex symbolizes lust?
How can one perceive the difference between lust and love?
Surely, you can always ask the person
“Is this lust or love?”
will you always get a straight answer?
Or will you be left there,
the intentions behind every move.
How can one perceive the difference between lust and love?
You know it’s lust when he’d rather look at the
curve of your lips
sparkle in your eyes.
You know it’s lust when he’d rather feel the
touch of your skin
feel of your hair.
You know it’s lust when he’d rather taste the
passion from your lips

Searching for you, and you hit me
With the force of a hurricane-
Knocking me off my feet and
Spinning me around so quickly I forgot
All sense and reason. Look into my
Eyes and take me to our place where
Nothing else matters but the
Warmth of your smile and my
Heart when you look at me that way,
Tha...thump, tha..thump, tha.thump,
And when I hear your voice
I'll forget my worries for tomorrow and
Only focus on today.
Because if you'll be mine just for now,
That's really all I can ask for.
Will You Count My Daisies With Me?I think of you as I count my daisies,Will You Count My Daisies With Me?1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
tearing off the head of each petal:
counting and saying:
“Do you love me,
do you love me not?”
And no matter how much I tried,
I could not see you on the other side,
counting those daisies like
“Why doesn't she love me,
why can't she love me:
because I'm a girl?”
Perfectly innocent we were,
a blissful childhood,
and perfectly in pain I was,
Perfectly in pain we were,
for counting our flowers,
and lying through our teeth,
“This is my best friend…
and we love each other-

You care about me because I am so different.
I like to be in my little box all by myself
But you just get inside without asking
Still I don't care at all because I love when
I am with you all the time
I start to get happy and Less lonely.

but not in the “you’re oh so perfect“ way
I love you
in the “you’re the coolest person I ever met” way
we’re not only a couple
we’re also super great friends
who can have a lot of fun together
I think I never met someone who’s as dorky as you
and I absolutely adore that
the fact how you’re not obsessed with yourself
and do not think of yourself as the hottest guy on earth
you’re so sweet around me
you couldn’t be any better, really
how you’ve been worried about what I might think of you
you don’t see how goddamn attractive you are
all the cute things you say to me
make me feel like I’m really beautiful
I do not have to worry that I could annoy you
because it seems like you love me just as much as I love you
I’ve never felt something like this before
you’re like my personal punk rock star
and when I say you’re the one
you’re my soulmate
I mean it
The clouds are chrome1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
You smeared the silver across the sky with the pad of your thumb
And the heel of your palm imprinted into the mountainside,
azure reflections of the canal show your eyes blinking heavily back at you
Thick lashes move like swaying tree branches in southerly winds, like my resolve they are velvety yet wiry, and intermingle as your soft lavender lids stretch shut
Fog travels slowly, settles between the mountaintops
You are so cold your breath travels like smoky tendrils escaping from the frosted corners of your timidly parted lips
Limbs like lumber
Arch across my horizon,
If you are a god, I am the land you look over
Your tears are my rainfall,
Your smile my sun
And your eyes my moonlight

Pouring out of me tonight.
Dear, this may take a while -
I've held it in for too long.
Now that the chain reaction has been triggered
you can only hold me stronger.
Let me get it out,
that's the only way I know how to be.
Don't give up on me, on us.
I'm feeling the lowest I've ever been.
Take me with you,
just hold on and wait with me.

although I am not.
Feel sick as you walk away,
but fine when your with me.
What is this feeling?
It confuses me.
I feel happy and sad,
both at the same time...
My head hurts,
but I also feel energetic
when, at least, I'm with you
or my best mates.
My heart races,
a pit in my stomach,
and stress fills my mind.
I can't breathe properly...
The smallest thing
will get my heart racing,
worrying if it will disrupt what we have.
Please someone, tell me what these feelings mean.

I hear the angels’ song,
The choir of the clouds,
Singing right along.
Maybe I’ve done some evil,
Upon your undeserving soul,
Perhaps over time it rotted your feelings for me,
And took its toll.
Girl, I’m sorry,
But you’re all I love,
And every time I see you,
I feel like I’m up above.
Close to Heaven,
Right by your side,
Close to Heaven,
Without that feeling, I felt like I died.
Just give me one chance,
And I’d keep our love together,
You’d be my angel,
It’s a funny word, isn’t it?
The funny thing is, it won’t happen,
Girl, you fly with the angels,
On white wings,
When I see you up there,
Even my black heart sings.
When you come down,
I want to be there,
Cause I’ll never let anything happen to you,
And angels have to fly,
No matter how far they fall,
I’ll be the one to help lift you up,
And help you through it all.
I dream about you,
All the time,

Avalon brown with remnants of Al Cielo and
sparkling with indecision; oh boy, did you know
how deadly they were, even against the gray
backdrop of Ellis High School?
A locker slams as you retreat, angrily
after my unfinished goodbye-song.
Well, I'm sorry I'm not as easy to forget
as you thought, my spoiled Halloween-night.
Half-moonbeam, now you know it feels..
Yeah, I hope you know that for me, it never was a joke.
I hope you understand now that you're cold and thirsty;
sitting up in your room, without the chords from
my ukelele playing in your head, without my cream-soda
vintage lips tracing patterns along your brass-toned
abdomen, your hollow oak-stomach, that you see that
love isn't a dart-board you can shoot poison arrows at.
No, it's not even a silly concept;
a note passed around in class,
wilting daisies on your doorstep.
I know you care about me but
you're going about this the wrong way, boy.
You're expecting too much from a girl
Like + Crush = LoveLike turns into a crush, then a crush turns into love, then that love turns into hurt. The cycle repeats over and over until you learn that love hurts more than it should. And when you learn that, you also learn that your love never loved you back. When you learn that, you break, break into two. One piece is the hurt and betrayal you felt. The second piece is the love you've kept. The second piece molds into you and you love again, but a shard of hurt and betrayal lays unseen on you. So when you find your second love the first piece grows reminding you of your crush and your love. That piece makes you reflect of how many times you tried and tried to get your loves attention of many years. The shard grows bigger. Over lapping the first shard. Making it hard to breath. You're sinking, drowning in your tears. The hurt takes over and you break free of the love you've given your second love. Afraid of being betrayed. The shard eventually becomes you. You can't ever love the same. You hid inLike + Crush = Love2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

From his long lost love
“Dear, Oh Dear!
Don’t disappear on me now!”
Alone in the woods
Screaming for his
One and only
Mad at her because
He told her not
To go anywhere
Is not right in the head
She has seen many horrors
With the thousand year wars
Her father and her brothers
“Dear, oh dear!
All will be ok
Do believe me.”
The elf grows desperate
He lays on the grass and he
Rest his eyes
He hears a whisper
“It is I, one of
the Great Ones.
I am the guardian of the forest.”
“Oh Great one…
My true love is
Stuck in these
Please, bring her to me…”
The Great one
Sighs and puts
An arm on his shoulder
“Your loved one…
Is with me now.”
Sad but relieved
Went back to sleep.
And never awoke.

I will keep it in neat fold

in the pocket of your jeans so old and worn
that melody in that crumpled sheet
you take in trains and old houses and seas and streets.
I will recite each word

we will sing a makeshift song
we will sing loud and out of tune
we will sing our hearts for all the days we’ve been apart

When you left me I thought I was safe,
When you left I thought everything would go back to normal,
When you left me alone I thought me and the boys could have some fun.
But now I smell your perfume when I open a door,
or when I go to bed and it ties my stomach in knots,
I see your picture and it hurts so much,
I try to run but it does no good; Where are you?
When you left it broke my heart; Where are you?
