Waiting at home for her master
Hours tick by.
No sign of master.
And closed them tightly
Trying not to think about master too much.
Suddenly the door swung open,
And I was ecstatic to see master!
Master wasn't that excited to see me.
He just patted my head,
Grabbed his coffee,
And walked out the door.
Leaving me behind once more.

Accepting ChangeWe wake up,Accepting Change6 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
We're not who we want to be.
We looked at all the shattered pieces.
We've just become,
Someone who we'll never love.
I'm sorry I was never good enough,
Never fulfilled the expectations,
I'm not going to change,
Not sorry to say,
That I'm staying this way.
No, I'm not perfect.
Hell, no one is.
But who we used to be,
Shouldn't be something so meaningful.
Yeah, I've got my flaws.
And you don't?
So we cried,
We promised we'd never tell,
We've just become,
Someone who we'll never love.
UnbreakableI would like to say I'm unbreakable,Unbreakable1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
But the truth is I'm not,
My body doesn't show it,
But in truth I'm just one big scar.
I pretend that nothing hurts me,
Not your words, not your actions.
But one by one they break me,
Just that centimetre more.
I would like to say I'm free,
But I'm not.
Just haunted by those memories,
I try so hard to repress.
But there is a little light,
Far at the end of the road.
Not too sure what yet,
I will tell you when I know.

Fly freely alongside millions of coloured paper cranes in the highest clouds granting wishes, while I look up at the sky thinking about the endless possibilities surrounding you.
Eat delicious dinner's with your once lost family and friends, as your serenaded by a choir of angels, playing tango at your request; while you sip the finest wine, and hover above the most tranquil of waterfalls.
Dance with the golden sun rays, teach them your steps as you sway with the highest trees inviting them to sing a refreshing breeze; hypnotising the world for hours at a time.
Then when you're done––
Drape yourself on the crested moon, with eternity as your blanket.
Rest peacefully, amongst the white sparkling hopes of a billion lost souls.
When I imagine you... I imagine you like this.

and that life will
But I don't think that
I think that
it is okay to be sad
We don't have to

Because in the end
we'll still have that one thing
that'll make us pretend
we're all okay
Because we're okay

A Body UnbeautifulA body unbeautifulA Body Unbeautiful6 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
When you meet someone what do you see?
The answer is there body. Whether beautiful to you or not you see the outside. The one thing they can’t change, can’t dictate, can’t control. You don’t look deep enough, don’t look into their eyes and see the depression, the hatred, the sadness. Because you see their body.
No, you look at their body whether beautiful or not.
You judge them, everyone does, even me. But that doesn’t make it right.
We see beauty in various ways because beauty is a perception. Something we create in our minds as perfect. But in reality there is no such thing as perfect.
When you see someone you see the outside not the beauty within. If you actually look deep enough you will find secrets that don’t show. Secrets that are hidden in fear of being judged, or being hurt, or being labeled. So in turn we hide them behind smiles and try to get rid of them through tears.
Because we see ourselves as unbeau

is gathering itself. passing
through a haze of crystallized
exhalations, headlights swathe the streets
in golden silk. below, city lights blink
like so many cats' eyes, watching the moon traverse
its curving magnetic thread.
two autumns ago, and one thousand
two hundred miles north, i listened
to the orphaned cannonball
of your heart, turning restless
in its ribbed socket. it is three
in the afternoon, and you are still sleeping:
bonebroken, heartsore soldier that you are,
from chasing echoes through your labyrinth
of thought. and i have been listening
long enough to know
what it means: that when you wake,
it will be into another world. that the shellfire is relighting
in you, deeper than memory; walls streaked
with gunpowder and oil, eyes
cratered like blue moons, airless, still.
and i have loved you like a declaration
of war. walking your battlegrounds
by night, sowing flowers.
the evening before, you took me
into the city, its insomniac orchestra
Paper PlanesIf only these paper planesPaper Planes22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Could loan me their wings
If that could be sane
To think such things.
If only I could fly away
Leave this, and you behind
Now my heart is on display
Where no soul can find
Forever winter in my heart
Now love has ceased to exist
Having lost my counterpart
Unforgiving emotion, I persist
Who can give me salvation?
Who will save me from myself?
What causes my aggression?
Who would take it on herself?
If only these paper planes
Could loan me their wings
I'd fly like the cranes
Away from what stings
A small case of social anxiety...I never wanted to feel this way.A small case of social anxiety...2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've never wanted to hold my breath every time someone touched me,
or nearly faint when I get called to the front of my classroom.
It haunts me, pressing a weight on my chest that is unbearable.
I walk by crowds of people hoping I don't catch their eye.
Maybe they won't notice, maybe they won't criticize me.
Oh god, did I trip?
Is there something on my face?
Why are they staring? I should stop worrying so much.
Just keep your head down, it will be alright..
Grey RainbowI want to leave this poem empty like no other oneGrey Rainbow4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
But there must be something written and done
For the first time I am laying down something without any usual feel
I hope, one day and forever my heart will completely heal
As the confusion fills my head, about a new emotion, a new word, a new action
And the thoughts and dreams in my head change everyday like a new fashion
For the ones that left an imprint on me I think and pause
Myself for them and for you I really tried to expose
Count the number of times where you've been punched by the truth
And remember the day, and the date when you got left and dumped by your youth
Stop and stare at this world that gave birth to people with fake faces
Wish you could look behind her and his mask before they start taking your love to places
Everyday we tap our fingers on different kinds of boards, letter after a letter it becomes a word
Words that may turn into a true valuable things to the ones on the other side of the world
And can you tell if you

My ConfessionMy confession, my fear – the dream I think I’ll never have.My Confession1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hear the words that people say, the praise mixed with the rest.
They say I’m talented, that I’m unique,
They say I have a future bright.
I know I’m not helpless, I know I’m not weak.
But my doubts and fears overwhelm me,
And I am left lost and alone.
I am afraid to be alone –
To never know love or what it is to be loved.
I don’t know what I have to have the right ones notice.
The wrong see my looks, my body and my makeup.
They see the light and confidence I have.
They see that I’m not the angelic child that perhaps standards dictate I should be.
But I’m not like them.
I will follow the rules and do what is right.
I’m afraid to never be noticed by one that catches my eye –
By a fellow who is kind and good and loving.
Will he never see me? Will he never notice?
I long for him to notice, but I know I can’t make him.
Will it always be this way?

A strange phenomenon
I never really got it
I cared enough
I tried enough
I worked enough
They impaired me
They lied to me
They irked me
We parted ways
Though I wanted to stay
To keep my thoughts at bay
In your eyes
I’m a plaything
And I just let it happen
But now I’m alone
But even at home
I sleep in another bed
So my guard is up
And my mouth is shut
And so is my head
Maybe I’ll find someone
Who cares enough
To try and keep me safe
It’ll be later
But I can wait forever
If they’ll be my always

The last color,
I ever remembered seeing.
The last thing
Before I died.
It wasn't painful,
At one point,
My emotions had numbed.
And I couldn't
Feel the pain anymore.
I felt liberated.
There were no chains,
Shackling my feet
To the filthy ground.
I had left those
That had broken me behind.
The angels had called me
To close me eyes
And go to sleep.
And all the pain would go away.
Let My Body layI am sorry I may not be the one you expected..Let My Body lay1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
My eyes happily cried for you once and I crazily acted..
It's just this demon in me that you had the strength to break down
He is now dragging me and laughing like a freak clown..
Every night I felt this hole in my chest that you can bury your love in it deep
I cry over everything I can't have with you while I'm on my way to sleep..
It's just that my eyes hurt and my throat is sore..
I see this room is so dark and empty and I can't find the door..
For you I felt I had the power and wanted to go overseas
But you just added more broken pieces to my heart along with these..
Take them, take the pieces and throw them away..
And along with the wind let them sway..
And in the bottom of the depths, let my body lay...

Simply loving it
Enjoying they way
The way you're tasting me
Slowly driving me
Only sweat between us
Can't believe it
But I feel it

Again and again
I'm on cloud nine
Heart to heart
It was perfect
Totally worth it
You left me breathless
I got you speechless
Love making till dawn
But with morning we're gone
Usual routine, it's alright
One night stand

And I can’t seem to remember who I am.

When we’re finding ourselves,
It happens more out of necessity than coincidence.

And remembering who I’ll become,
I’ll remember that forgetfulness isn’t all bad.
