i smile sheepishly, and shrug in reply.
the freckle on his palm
consumes me like
my kerosine veins
and in my nightmares i can
still feel his breath against my neck
and the way my throat collapsed
when he ignored my eyes that
begged him not
to put the condom on.
"you're going to give boys the wrong idea."
i smile sheepishly, and shrug in reply.
her eyes dragged over mine
before her teeth popped over my lip
her grip on my sides rough
while i turned and squirmed and
tried to run
then her eyes grew wide
as if she didn't realize
what she was doing
even though she
told me later that
she didn't regret it.
"did he rape you?"
introverted feeler and
emotive peeler of past wounds
the burning in my soul is
nothing compared to the churning
in my stomach
aching breaking and broken
tokens of poetry for
a lifetime of agony
you can't burst my brain open
and drain what he did to me.

little animal girl in your mother's gown
with your mother's scent
and your mother's beautiful
tragedy brown eyes.
little animal girl, so quick to love
and quick to anger
and quick to cry
and quick to punish.
little animal girl– you're not a rabbit.
you're far too quick to be caught by a boy
that stumbles, pained, through your rampant forests.
little animal girl in your mother's gown
with her waning scent
and curious brown eyes
which once bore likeness to hers.
little animal girl, too scared to fight
too scared to heal
too scared to smile
too scared to feel.
little animal girl– you're not a doe.
you're far too scared to be caught by a boy
that calls, despaired, loudly for you in the darkness.
little animal girl in tender rags
no longer scented with familiar places
and brown eyes clinging to every image seen
she shall never see them again.
little animal girl, too remorseful for words
too remorseful for actions
108/1000 - Long NightsFriday, July 1, 2011108/1000 - Long Nights1 month ago in Free Verse
After days of dates,
Today was different.
We were curled up
In the living room
Watching a horror film
Because we were bored.
You were glued to me,
When you weren't hiding
Against my shoulder.
When it was a quiet part,
Where the leads strategize
On how to survive,
I leaned over,
Trying to get a look at you,
To see you asleep.
I laughed to myself,
Then looked at the time.
It was close to midnight,
And my mom walked downstairs.
"Is she asleep?"
And when I went to move,
You sucked in a breath,
Pushing out of my grip
And looking around wildly.
When your eyes
Locked on the clock,
They became glassy,
And by the time a tear spilled,
I pulled you into a hug,
And my mom rushed over.
"Can you go home, honey?"
My mom asked you,
And all it took
Was one look at your face
To get you into her too-large sweats
And settled on the couch.
"Will you be okay?"
Stalling leaving you alone.
You nodded and smiled,
But your faint

in my head as my body twists on this bed,
uncomfortable with the thought of lying alone
in a melting spring-on-the-rocks hour of restless sleep,
street-wise insomnia and the memory of what it felt like
to be by your side earlier; holding your hand,
watching a movie out in an open field.
Yeah, Atlanta summer; I remember perfectly
the shape of your lips around mine, the thrill,
the rush, maybe even the fear of being discovered
and the idea that my heart was betraying my mind.
Yeah, that was the worst part, see;
wanting to be smart, crafty in case something happened
and we'd have to scramble out of your car so fast,
that nobody would notice our hands clasped tight.
But at the same time; calloused November, I just wanted
to sit still as your hand glided down my spine.
And who could blame me, boy?
Your gingerbread-colored skin, gray-green eyes are just
a small piece of the beautifully complicated puzzle that
is your West Coast profile.
Oh yeah, make
Copper-Stained KissYour kiss is my copper stained bliss,Copper-Stained Kiss3 weeks ago in Free Verse
I wrap around my pinky this
hair of rocky sandy brown,
please don't frown my darling now.
Waves of iron copper gold,
hair I forever treasure so:
you are worth a hundred words,
please don't think you're never heard.
Silent waking night of love,
together holding our two palms:
Treasured night of love bird songs,
hearing words of tempered cause.
Pausing for one silver sweet kiss,
gleeful passion: burning love.
Loving damsel don't you see?
You mean the world to me...
I Want You PoemI want to laugh with you as we dance like nobody is watching.I Want You Poem2 weeks ago in Free Verse
To cosplay with costumes we worked on for weeks.
To spoil you with gifts, handmade and bought.
To hold your hand as we walk down the sidewalk.
I want you.
I want to kiss you under the stars on the rooftop.
To run my fingers through your hair.
To embrace you tightly.
To lay my head on your chest and listen to your heartbeat.
I want you.
I want to hold you when you cry.
To wipe your tears away.
To be the one you always come to.
To be the one you want when you burst.
And I want to make you smile at your worst.
I want you.
I want to cuddle upon hours and sleep the night away.
To be together as we sob over anime.
To touch foreheads with you, just holding each others hands.
To look into your eyes and see every emotion.
And I want to kiss you until we start a commotion.
I want you.
I want you.
I want your laughs.
I want your everything.
And I know things wont happen,
But I can at least dream?
And try my best?
Lights in your eyes LiterallyLights in your eyes 1 week ago in Free Verse
You light up my insides
There's a party
In my soul
Of string lights and constellations
Your smile makes me shiver
And seeing you makes me smile
And I light up like a firework
And everything in me sighs
I feel like a stupid girl in love
But it's how I feel and I can't change it
You are the best thing to happen to me
But I can't proclaim it
To you I can
To them I cannot
I'm a coward and a loser
But I hope you care for me still
Otherwise it would be dark in my world
And time would stop still
The light in your eyes is truly magical
If only I could see it
When am feeling lost and down
But then I remember, oh God I remember
You're always there for me when I need you most
You with your lighted eyes
And me with my lighted soul
PrincessHer eyes like two magnificent sapphires gleaming in the moonlight,Princess1 month ago in Free Verse
Small, dainty tears running down her pale, lush cheeks.
This moment has evaded me for years aplenty;
Our hearts have become one in the same.
Take my hand, Princess.
Let me whisk you away to lands unknown.
Let me hold your hand through the most calamitous of storms;
Let me kiss your ruby-red, soft lips as the night sky falls before our eyes.
Our fingers lock in each others like two souls becoming connected.
Never again shall I feel the pain of heartbreak,
The despair of being alone,
Or the longing angst from being away from your arms.
Our astronomical kiss fuels an undying flame within my heart of hearts.
Your eyes locked on mine creates an overwhelming supernova in my soul.
I want you to be mine, always and forever.
Mikado's PoemI thought of us as I danced with youMikado's Poem1 week ago in Free Verse
Under the dark of the new moon that night
With your arm around my waist, holding me close
Your hand running through my long, false hair
As I laid against you and closed my eyes,
I remembered that time on that dreadful day
When my body was so violated
It felt it was being torn to shreds
My ears faded with my innocence
My hair was chopped to pieces around me
In a flash of hair, blood, scissor blades, and my own screams
My perpetrator's sadistic eyes glinted
While the one who I thought was my friend stood and watched
For no reason, he had told me
I cried and cried for so long after that
But I would never let you know
I had to be strong for you
Even in the rift that came between us,
Even when I grew bitter and unforgiving,
Seeking revenge against he who wronged me,
You have always been by my side
Even when I hide away my feelings,
You saw me as you see me now
In all my pain and brokenness
My Fighter and my love, my one and only
You are my protection and

But this is one way I wanted to show how I feel..
But I feel like my feelings for you are endless.
Now, please don't kill me.

Competing with himLucky your faceCompeting with him1 month ago in Free Verse
That attracts my heart
You would anger me
In your intelligence
That matches mine
In most ways
But I don't really mind
For you see more important
To me is that smile
Not anymore the rewards
Not competing with you
I may have wanted
All of it once
And to be the top
But I may let you there instead
Your hand should've been
A trigger of madness
Of raging competition in acdemics
Always raised, just like mine
None of it matters anymore
I like your smile better
I'll let you get that just this once
Or twice, or every time
The rewards are of no worth
Mother's anger is no threat
There is only you and every point
So I will give up, won't compete with him
Even though I surely can
For his face , disappointed
Drives me mad, I should have let him
So I will now, that's how much I love that smile.
It's Nights Like TonightIt's nights like tonightIt's Nights Like Tonight6 days ago in Free Verse
That remind me
Why I started falling.
Talking about anything and everything,
Leaning toward each other in the doorway,
Holding eye contact with an
Intensity I've never known before,
All the while moving closer and
Closer, like gravity is
Pulling us in---
Maybe it is.
As we migrate toward each other,
Two planets caught in each other's
Fields, he battles his heavy lids
And I fight the desire to
Tell him exactly what he means
He stifles a yawn.
I do my best to silence the poetry
That wants to come flying out my lips.
We aren't ready for it.

No puedo dejar de pensarte,
Es algo inevitable,
Todo el día,
Todos los días,
No hay un momento
En el que no esté preguntándome
Por qué pasaron así las cosas,
Por qué no te elegí
Cuando tuve la oportunidad…
Ahora me arrepiento
Después de tanto tiempo…
Te extraño mucho
Y no hay forma
De poder decírtelo
Te observo a diario
No te das cuenta pero…
Buscando una excusa
Soy muy cobarde,
No me animo ni siquiera a eso…
La verdad es
Que sufro cada vez que te veo
Pero no puedo dejar de hacerlo
Sos mi obsesión,
Ya ni siquiera sé
Si pensás en mí
Lo único que sé es
Que no me amas
Y me temo que nunca lo hiciste
Pero no me importaba…
Era feliz con tu presencia,
Esos besos que me hacían volar
Con los que me sentía fuera de este mundo
A view on today's romanceRomance.A view on today's romance1 month ago in Free Verse
People nowadays don't care about it.
The world is starting to care only for actions.
The act of love,
The act of this and that...
Pretty words will no longer get anyone anywhere.
Poets will be bound to live the tragedies they once wrote.
Gentlemen will slowly be misunderstood.
While all they are doing is showing some courtesy,
Their words will instead be taken for flirtatious nonsense.
Ladies are disappearing too.
No matter how many times they search for a gentleman,
He is no longer there,
For he has already taken his chances for taken,
And has lost all hope.
The world itself is starting to live by looks.
Should a mirror not reflect the image they are expecting,
They will immediatly work to change it.
So that he or she will be accepted.
By people no smarter than them,
But that decide to ignore everything that isn't physical.

The light burns your skin as
You say good bye
I watch as you turn to ash in my arms
The light fading
from your bright blue eyes
I cry, my tears staining my cheeks
Oh god why have you forsaken me!
Don't let him leave me!
You take my hand,
the ash smuging my fingers as
A single tear falls
daring to grace your handsome face
And the last thing you whisper to me is:
"Don't cry Angel, I'm always with you."

When we speak to each other, butterflies take flight within not my stomach, but my soul. My very existence depends on you. I cannot live without you being in my life. Even if you do not want me, I will still want to enjoy your company. I wish, more than anything, that we could be together. I wish to share your feelings. I wish to be there for you whenever you need me. I wish to laugh, cry and live with you. If you think you know who I am, I will tell you now that it doesn't matter.
A place in the worldMy mom said that I have to find my place in the worldA place in the world1 month ago in Free Verse
I could take days or even a lifetime to find it, she told me
When I felt ready to struggle against everyone and everything
I went to search for my place
I took a long time to find it
There were several times that I stopped and thought of giving up
but I finally found it
and it looks like,
that my place in this world is right beside you
In each step I took it seemed that I was always going in your direction
Each way I decided to take always took me to you
It might seem strange to you,
and I guarantee that it is also weird to me
however I am willing to risk this new way
I do not know what awaits for me
I only know that it will be worthy if I am with you
