School flew by
Like a balloon in the breeze,
Only getting snagged on something
My teacher was happier than I was
That I entered the contest.
She told me I could expect the results
To arrive early January.
How would I wait that long?
With you, I probably could.
I called you after school,
And we chatted for hours,
Even while I had to stay home
And pass out candy.
It wasn't until
Long after we'd hung up
That I remembered
Was still hanging
In the corner of my closet.
Was it really a full year ago
When you wore this
And we held hands?
It could have been
A few hours ago
For all I knew.

right under polyester ghosts and breezes;
colder than the staring of the strangers on the street.
and it feels like sleet, like gunfire
as if Heaven's cruel artillery
felt like drilling holes into the eyelids
of everyone trying to sleep.
as i rub my feet together under sheets
like napkins in typhoons;
i feel like such a fool- wishing
it wasn't the rain kissing me,

you put the melody
into my whispering words.
You sneak life
into my poems of death.
to my grey images.
You're the sound of the pattering rain
I write about outside my window.
Midnight BlueA chrysalis enveloped the dayMidnight Blue2 weeks ago in Free Verse
Cocooned it in night
And from it my morning was born:
Ruby sunsets turned to
But this only happened to me
His crystal eyes
are trapped in the clutch of midnight blue
I am unlike his broken heart
His torn soul
I am holding a mouthful
Of flowery words
Intimacy that he will always
(he does not believe in words
They are written lies)
His heart spills like
a broken porcelain sink
Until he is devoid of his emotions
And cannot comprehend me
Still, I wait
For his morning to come
So that the sunlight
may shine on me
who has grown into his earth
and has been buried in his moss
(my head lays in the morning grass, but he is trapped in the night.)
I thought it was meant to beI fell in love with you when we first metI thought it was meant to be1 month ago in Free Verse
I thought I was meant to be
I was shy with you when we first met
I thought it was meant to be
You finally came and asked me out
I was sure it was meant to be
But then you and I broke up
And I doubted our destiny
I tried to get over you
But I still felt it was meant to be
So I came back to you
And I knew it was meant to be
But now as I look back I realise it was meant to be
Unfortunately we let them intervene
And now as I see your forced to be with someone else
I sit with a heart that is heavy
I've never felt so much pain as I wonder if you still love me
Poem: DetailsI fall in love with detailsPoem: Details4 days ago in Free Verse
Like the way your hair falls
After my hands run through it
How your eyes
Turned the brightest green
When the sun hits them
The way you walked down the street
My hand inside yours
How you grabbed me by the waist
For the world to see
The way you’d tickle my sides
Causing me to laugh uncontrollably
The way your arms held me
Into the early morning hours
The way you laughed
After I made a stupid joke
The way your lips felt
Never wanting to release from mine
The way your voice cracked
When you said you loved me
The way my world crashed
When you said it was over
I know that you cried a little bit
But I died a little bit
All the things that needed to be said
Will be locked away inside of a drawer
Waiting for you to call
But the days are passing by
All the things you said
Made it harder to breathe
I was lying on the floor
I couldn’t believe
You wouldn’t save me
Of all the things
I’ve been forced to learn
In my short lifetime
One of the most im

i am still waiting
to learn what it feels like
to love without yearning
and that's the thing about love -
you can never know what it's meant to feel like
because i am comfortable
and i am happy
but i have stopped staring at the sky and wondering
because when i do,
i am still laying beside you
if you have ever been to this place
can you please tell me what you have found
i am too afraid
to reopen this wound
i don't know what colour my blood is anymore
and i am afraid that i will still be bleeding for you
my fingers are still wandering your skin
and i am still discovering
what is is like to love
i am empty because i have a desire
to be sad again
i am exploring the places of myself
in which i laid these things to rest
and there is a satisfaction
in knowing they are still well and truly
it has been seven years now
and i am not sure if i will ever
truly fill your space
or if i am even meant to
it has been seven years now
and i don't know what it means

How my heart feels...When I first laid my eyes upon your face,How my heart feels...3 weeks ago in Free Verse
it was as if the universe had halted. From its farthest
reaches, to its inner core. From the highest point in the heavens,
to the deepest pits of the underworld…
I witnessed such an incomparable beauty that day. Nothing on earth,
could possibly compare to the light that shined from you.
Never before have I seen such beautiful eyes,
such beautiful hair, such a beautiful face or smile.
Nor have heard such a beautiful voice quite like yours before...
After that, an indescribable force surged through my veins.
In that moment it was as if my body and soul were taken,
and rejuvenated to its full potential. I couldn’t have felt any better than
that moment in any point of my life,
not before, nor after…
After that day, my entire life was changed…
No longer would I mope, feeling depression and sorrow.
No longer would I cry, feeling suffering and pain.
No longer would I worry, questioning every move I make.

lover, my daydream nightmare boy.
I dreamt about you holding me,
wiping away my tears like you were
trying to tell me,
"Syringa, you shall be happy yet";
but I didn't have the chance as
a knight dying in deadly nightshade
thoughts thinking of you, of the strength in your arms,
and of your lips.
weave yourself through my memory,
find yourself there as something sweet,
with forget-me-not eyes and a laugh that knows
I wouldn't dare.
you are my happiness for now, my daisy
bells ringing innocence in crimson dreams
where I just keep dying trying to live for
RefugeI want to lock my black fingernailsRefuge3 weeks ago in Free Verse
through your sandy blonde hair,
rest my head on your chest
and not worry about tomorrow.
I want to thread our hearts together
hoping that it'll become a whole
from our tattered scars.
I want messy hair
finding refuge in
these tangled bead sheets-
into your shelter-
bound in your arms
when my mind is a storm outside-
a tsunami of deep night thoughts
when two tragedies become one
a tornado and hurricane-
can I just stay with you?
Because sometimes silence is violence
and I want to drown in the sound of your voice tonight.
Pause...Have you ever wanted to hit pause,Pause...3 days ago in Free Verse
Stop time right in it's tracks?
That's how I felt last night,
Laying my head on your chest...
I wanted to stay right there,
Don't ever want to have to look back.
I never wanted to let go of your hand,
Looking back ten years,
Who'd have thought this is where we'd land?
Right back in each other's arms again,
We've come full circle,
I just don't want this to be where it ends,
I don't want this to be over,
Not just one weekend...
Forbidden crush Some things they aren't really meant to beForbidden crush 2 weeks ago in Free Verse
One of those things was you and me
you're sexy and so beautiful
you're my angel, my perfect girl
your eyes they shine so perfectly
you hate your laugh, but it's pretty to me
every single fucking night
I lock myself up and cry and fight
hoping I'll come through all right
You're perfect, but I'll never be with you
Wish I could get to know you
You'll think I'm creepy, but let me say:
I daydream about you every day
don't try so hard to look pretty,
take off that makeup, you're pretty to me!
But I know you don't like me back
(you can admit it, it's cold hard fact)
I will admit, my heart breaks over you
but at least I got to meet you
Can't I can't say it to you;Can't 1 month ago in Free Verse
Because I'm afraid of being rejected.
I can't tell you;
Because I'm afraid of loosing you.
I can't let you know;
Because I'm afraid I'll ruin us.
I can't say it in person;
Because I know the words won't come out.
I can't say it write it in a note;
Because I'm afraid I'll look like a coward.
I can write it in verse;
And hope you'll understand.
I can write it in verse;
And tell everything without a problem.
I can write in verse;
But all I want to say is 'I Love You'

A forever closing gap
Inhaling the comforting scent of skin
Lean back and smile,
Look into the opposite's eyes

Lips graze each other
Crossing the border of

U shoulda left it at that
Coz now its 3 AM and your tryna get me back
I wouldn't mind having a normal coversation
But you only call me when your drunk
And im getting sick of your shit
It was funny the first couple times
But now is not the time
I've moved on
So should you
U fucked my best friend for christ sake
U need to get off the drugs
U called me a robot and said I was emotionless
Im not emotionless, just a cunt
But I do care for most people
And on occasion that includes you
For your own sake stop this
All of this
You know who you are
Grow the fuck up.

He doesn't understand how much I want him back..no one really does.
I hear him laugh or whisper when it's quite.
I smell his Cologne when no one's around and I'm alone (like right now).
His blue eyes haunt me when I sleep at night.
And his touch still burns my skin with an unquenchable fire.

Hoping he can finally give it to me.

Asteroid I couldn't feel my heartbeatAsteroid 3 weeks ago in Free Verse
I panicked and checked again
My cold fingers pressed the side of my neck
Like snow on a flame
The warmth seeping
It was there but ever so faint
Later on, I was with you
And I could feel my heart pounding
In my chest
In my head in my veins and arteries and everything was alive
My head rested against your heart and I heard it
Keeping in rhythm
Keeping you alive
And when you laughed it echoed
In your chest
And I heard it, so strange did it sound
And my own fit of laughter didn't seem to fit right
But the thuds of our heartbeats
Sped up and down
Like a grand concert piece
The orchestra in our souls
Is still playing
I don't want it to fade out
Like the star
Oh that shooting star
We looked to the sky and there it was
Plain as day
We had to lean across the aisle of the bus and we almost fell but
I leaned back anyways and saw it
It was beauty and grace
I thought it would destroy the human race
Oh the rings surrounding it
Looked as if it wa
Was ist Los?I walk In,Was ist Los?2 weeks ago in Free Verse
I sit down,
Blocking the world out.
Awkward and shy.
I stumble on my words,
Like a baby deer discovering
his new legs.
I held it all in,
Till one person,
Broke the chains.
Long Brown hair,
Long enough to get lost in.
Warm and inviting.
I choke on my words,
will I ever tell her?
Can I tell her?
Pushing it down,
trying to numb the feeling.
But I can't...
Months fly by,
Things have changed.
A spark of hope.
Maybe I have a chance.
while the words of my affections and feelings,
flow from my pen,
Onto lined bleached paper,
An Hour later she replies,
Her words whispering,
In my head.
“I Like you too”
She wears my sweatshirt.
She kissed me.
she stole my heart.
Was ist Los?
My heart was stolen.
By a beautiful girl,
With long Brown hair,
and Doe eyes that

It is immeasurable.
I am lucky
To be able to call her my girlfriend.
I love her.
To be with her,
Is to experience bliss.
To cuddle her,
To be apart from her,
To see her cry,
Is worse than hell.
She is the love of my life,
I need her.
She gives my heart a beat,
She gives my world light,
She gives me reason,
Reason to live.
