See the me I wish to be?
The girl that hides deep inside my mind
Do you see the girl I'm meant to be
See the me I want to be
Or do you possibly see the me I need to be
The girl inside my mind, the girl that fights inside
The girl that wants to be let out the girl that needs to take control
Do you see me
Do you see the real me
Or do you just see my cover story

I put up a thousand doors
Trapping it in the core
So you wont get hurt
Sorry if this is curt
There are so many problems to juggle
Its a hard struggle
Some days I conquer it enjoying being free
Some days it conquers me
And it makes it's way out a little more
Getting through another door
I try so hard to hide it inside
But usually everything I do to stop it is pushed aside
But I'll manage with you alongside
FriendshipA broken home, a term that I know well.Friendship2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They say in the end, family's all you have left.
I walk this earth, or more, this hell.
Loved ones have died one by one, a wretched burden to heft.
What hope can i find.
While they all die, I live on.
I have left them all behind.
Still, I feel their love in every ray of the sun.
What happiness can I find when all joy has died.
Will I be lonely, sitting in the rafter.
NO, I will make more friends, I WILL NOT HIDE.
New joy can be found, in the sound of their laughter.
So I have finally found a home, not one but many.
The residence of friends.
Look at the bright side, pick up the penny.
Think not of when it all might end.
With hope in hand
friendships power and
maybe... finaly... at long last... happiness.
ColorsI looked at my reflection today,Colors3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
At first I wasn't satisfied.
This depressed, lonely person was me.
And almost everyday I cried.
I painted a picture with black and white,
No color in sight.
But then I added color,
Turning wrongs into rights.
I picked up the yellow color,
Painting a bright Sun.
Yellow stood for happiness,
Spreading joy to everyone.
Next, came the red.
Passionate like love.
It looked bright and beautiful.
Like a small drop of blood.
Next, came the blue,
Like an ocean at my feet
Or a clear blue sky in the summertime.
Either way, it looks neat.
Next, comes the color green,
Like soft grass on the ground.
It really is creative,
And it exists all around.
Next, is purple, fabulous.
It is outgoing, outspoken, and true.
It is royal, spunky, very fresh.
A combination of red and blue.
Next in line is orange,
Sweet and soft like the fruit.
An eye-catching color,
It's really cute.
Lastly, is brown.
Like like the trunk of a tree.
Or maybe chocolate candy bars
Or warm, bitter coffee.

You think I have been weird since
I am the captain of my ship sailing the seven seas
But a cardboard box is all you see
I am orbiting space exploring new land
But no more, you obliterate the box with your hand
I am sitting in a room barren as my heart
You say that you want to smash the fun apart
Whats wrong with viewing the world different I ask
You say if it is not normal cover it with a mask
But I forgive you for I am always kind
And you are perpetually blind

Love is the child
a mother never missed
love is blind
and love is
loves in me
and loves in you.
Someday...Someday... I'll disappear without a trace.Someday...6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As if I never existed.
Someday... I'll be gone,
No one will miss me.
Someday... I'll be forgotten,
Washed away by the rain.
Someday... it'll all be over,
I'll end this pain.
Someday... I'll snap,
Someday... I'll be all alone.
I won't have any help.
Someday... when the time is right,
I'll grab that shiny blade.
Someday... I'll make you regret.
You should've stayed.
Someday... in the middle of the night,
I'll take that sharp, cold knife.
Someday... someday... someday...
I'll end this pathetic, worthless life.
BlackNot sure why I'm crying,Black6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Or even why it's dark.
But it's hard to see the sunshine,
When you cannot here the lark.
The sun set many moons ago,
And hasn't risen since.
The night presses against my eyes,
Enough to make me wince.
Sometimes I feel I'm drowning,
In a rancid pool I made,
Now I wonder how long til
The debt to myself is paid.
Occasionally people wander by
And offer me a hand,
But there's no point in helping,
Someone doomed to sink in sand.
One day it'll be over,
I'll either sink or swim.
It's a shame for now, that choice, it hangs,
Purely on a whim.

Times are getting tough
Sometimes you wanna break away and say "I've had enough!"
They're going way too far
And when things get hard
You take out the blade and reopen your bloody scars.
Now you make look at thee
And it's clear to see
There is not a scratch or cut that I have made on me.
When I wanna go inside
To the safe haven i hide
I grab something to use and draw out my pride
a scratch against a page
like a spell cast by a mage
I swirl and twirl and curve as I release my rage

Army Of One Only few seem to careArmy Of One9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Though they’re never there
To see my broken body
Strangers stare at me oddly
They know me they say
Let them leave as they may
An actress in public
A dying soul being robotic
Pills don’t numb the pain
Razor blades give my skin bloody stains
The bullet let the ease came
Another lost fight hires on the screen
How life could be so mean
So at least the end we are an army of one
Not a lot got done
Now to find put who won
some believe death is a gift
Others a curse
Scared body; secret broken soul lefts
A Morning Before I Sleep Again/A ProphetOne cold, black, morning I had woken up to findA Morning Before I Sleep Again/A Prophet10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Some work of my hand that seemed not of my mind
And so I stared at the crumpled paper that laid out on my floor
Skimmed over it again and again and thought it over some more
And I felt the same burn I had time and time before.
I felt that same urge to release and a shaking at my core.
And of course, though I knew, I argued what just what just was it for,
But, this time I grew noxious and decided nevermore.
And the burn persisted and rolled around the celling
And oh, I could not describe the shame I was feeling
And amidst this I simply had to proclaim
That it felt amazing to be alive despite any pain.
Was it really a miracle?
Or simply a testament to my youth?
Oh how it was so bitter sweet
To acknowledge the truth.
UngratefulIt's not that I'm not really gratefulUngrateful10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Truth be told my blessing box is full.
I can't be the kind of person that you'd want,
Nor am I the type of daughter you had dreamt of.
I remember you said that you would love me either way
I was special and I was dear you would always say
It's okay to make mistakes because I'm human and that's okay
But you're mad at me right now and I have to say that that's lame.
Was that all a script at play when you uttered those?
I can't say you didn't have me fooled,
But of course I accepted your word as if it was a rose,
Saying that I would just have to deal with your changing mood.
I've dealt with it for so long now
And I'm not sure how long I can still hold on
My chains are breaking
My walls are shaking
My brain is malfunctioning
And my heart is crumbling.
My grip to sanity is fading away slowly
And my hope is just a silent mist, crying
Ever so softly.

Despójame de todo
Solo déjame en paz.
Marcho de ti
Amas hacerme sufrir
Con todas tus ganas.
Desentendiste mis palabras
Cuando quise liberarme
De tus ataduras.
Tomó tu vida la cólera
Tomó tu vida tu sombra
Ahora sos una pensante.
Comenzaste a pegarme
Pagando tú fracaso en mí
Útil hasta el más banal
Objeto para lastimarme
Vale todo para inducir dolor.
Cualquier momento servía
Tarde, noche o pleno día
Ajustabas tu horario.
Inculcaste miedo en todo
Ya era insegura de mis pasos
O de mis oídos dolidos.
Lloré en mis almohadas
Sofocando mí llanto
Temiendo tú regreso.
Nunca mencioné el tema
A nadie nunca y así
Evitaba más tortura.
Que sería maltratada
Ningún lugar para huir
Nadie a quien recurrir
Ninguna vida que vivir.
Decidí no más
Abuso de tus puños
Quiero ver la luz.
Hice mis maletas
The Queen of the Shattered KingdomThere once was a lonely girlThe Queen of the Shattered Kingdom11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
From her home she was not welcome,
Wandered the world with little direction
When a Queen gave her a new home
A stranger among the kingdom,
The people gawked and stared
But the warmth that she would show
Would soften their unkind glares
Little did they know
The girl would become their hope
She would always stand by them,
She would even give them her soul
One day she became their Queen,
And she lead with all of her might
For them she'd never give in;
Never lose a single fight.
Each sacrifice she made
Would leave their Queen with scars
But she loved her people,
And for them she gave her heart
Sadly a new force came
Their Queen could not defend,
Though she tried to save her people,
The kingdom she loved came to an end
The tattered Queen,
Thought her sacrifices were in vain
Would she ever find such happiness,
Ever feel so passionate again?
She looked to the skies,
Beginning to pray
For the wisdom she wished to gain
To carry her through her days
She realized that
Fate worse than deathFate worse than deathFate worse than death17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
by Kim J. (Lamberth) Schirmer
I use to feel pity for those, cut off when there used to be love
cut off by divorce, or by written or verbal decree
but there is a fate most miss that occurs under heaven above
worse than death, to be abandoned, written off, exist no more to be
Feel deep sorrow for the living dead, whose pain will never cease
Trying to remember any happiness of youth or better times
Anguishing, wallowing, writhing each day as did poor Prometheus
In this case not the liver, a heart was torn out for unforgiven crimes
Is it better to wish never to have been born?
before one chanced to enjoy sunshine bright
or died early on before their heart was torn
and endure an unending hell of sleepless night
How does one forget close ties, the warmth of love?
How does one walk away and never care?
How does one make a new life and risk again love?
How does one chance for their heart and soul again be laid open and bare?
To some, it is easy to turn back and

So you say, "Then go to sleep".
But it's not that kind of tired
It's one that ends that final leap.
I say that I can't do this,
So you tell me, "Just one more day."
But every moments painful
In the most acute of way.
I say that I am sorry,
So you ask me, "What for?"
But I can't bring myself to answer
Before I walk straight out the door
I ask it why it did this
But it won’t answer me
I'm speaking to an empty sky
Something I can painfully see
I ask myself the question,
"Why not end it now?"
But I have no real answer
All that's left is, how?

Up my spine it creeps
The dark at last
Forms my cast
I don’t want to fit in
The light comes from within
As the last night shines on you
There’s nothing that I can do
You’re fading away
Why can’t you stay
Erased my name
This was not planned
I’m just reacting
No time for acting
Someday I might ask
Why it’s me who wears the mask
But it’s not my place to question
At least I know your confession

Sterling silver notes waltz on air
In the search of listening ears
But, finding eyes cascading tears
Sterling silver notes stop to stare
And find themselves moved to join in
Slow and sorrow laden they spin
