Speak or not at allThe ellipsis, they make me want to scream. The unsaid words threaten to swallow my being whole. What is it you want to say? Tell me, don't leave me here to imagine a world of chaos and secrets. In my mind, my fears are let to surface and takes over my rationality. Why are you letting me do this? All of this could have been avoided, if you would just speak. The words that you could have said, they could have saved me from the dark. They could have prevented me from doing this.Speak or not at all20 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Speak not now and forever it shall be. Let your tongue be eaten by the vultures of which would vomit the chunks into your throat so that you need not speak. Let the regurgitated chunks decay in your throat so you will never mutter a sound. Let the scorpions sting all your ten fingers (or remaining ones) after it has been broken by the mouth of the dragon so that you need not type or write. For words are such a burden to you, is it not? If that is not the case, then why is it that you refuse to speak?

Don't let them see
What's really going on
What's hidden underneath
I'm surrounded by people
And yet I feel so alone
Can't stay strong much longer
At least that much is known
I just need two or three people
They help me stay sane
Just two or three people
So I can deal with the pain
I've been here before
This dark hole so black
Trying to find my way out
So I can never come back

been there, done that
they're bored faces are accusing
they wonder where the fun's at
Every dream is just the same
chasing, running away
The people all think its lame
they don't care what I have to say
In the night world nightmares run free
I scream, I run
but they no longer torture with glee
even they think I'm no fun
The monsters, they grew
from under my bed they came
even when the pain feels so real
to them its just a game
But years have passed like they do
to every dear young child
gone are tearful, scary nights
when nightmares run wild
So the people and the monsters are bored
right out of my mind
when you dream take a look inside your own head
you'd be surprised at what you find

The moment you realize
You have feelings
Is it when
You look up
And catch sight of him
Across the room
And you feel
Your heart rate increase?
Or is it when
You feel his touch
Lingering on your skin
Even after his hand
Maybe the first time
He was close enough
to you, to catch a whisp
Of his cologne
Or the time you
Walked by and
At the sight of you-
Like it was gift that
He got to catch a glimpse
Looking up and
Making eye contact
Knowing he was
Looking at you too
I don't know if any
Of these explain
How I feel
But I know
That my heart speeds up
At the sight of him
My face goes red
At the thought of him
My stomach fills with butterflies
When he speaks to me
And I can't say for sure
But my brain says
This is what love feels like.

Just to wait
To be asked to join the fun
So your tears can cease to run.
Only to never be included
Always to be excluded.
You can be someone else
Just to no longer be yourself
To know what it's like to be in the group
Rather than the stale old piece of poop...
The longing of acceptance
To join in the laughs
But that's far to much to ask...
So stop crying and stop hoping
Just accept it...
You'll always be the forgotten
And the unwanted.
You'll always be the one
Always be the one no body wants
All you'll ever get is pity...
From those who feel sorry
Never anyone who would actually worry
If you weren't there...
The Unbeknownst GuideThere’s something to be said,The Unbeknownst Guide3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
about the beauty of life
and its knack for irony.
For it is even when we feel most hopeless
that we can inspire those around us;
those who we love
who face the highs and lows
with the best of us and the worst;
as well as those we’ve never met
who can look at the scars we carry
and feel those very same pains.
So often we reach these points
where apathy begins to sway
and all focus is lost;
where our only wish
is to hide our heads
and wait for the storm to pass,
but as we find our way in the dark
and climb towards better days
there are those who will ask,
as they notice your steps in the mud,
just how you made it through
when it was starting to look
as if no one ever could.
There’s something to be said,
about the beauty of life.
If only I knew what it was.

Through sleep beneath hot lust in life
Hot frantic summer play beauty
Summer lake music raw storm rain shine
Raw rose scream together they sing in death
They smear above the sea sweat
In luscious chocolate honey from bitter smoothed wax woman
Wax purple and gorgeous soaring swim
She too could follow almost out of cold dusk vivid bloom world
Vivid dawn hot breeze breathe full like an soft bright nature
Breathe a murmur but always over thick trees
But no harmony stone did so quietly
Over how listening peace of some cloudiest poetry watch
Soft song though said beneath soul strolled to leave or give that lonely gentle light through beautiful long love
Love as an earth blanket
Poetry a hot desire velvet voice
As broken than cool fire
Explored from a fool surrounded
Always in this ice glass universe
A magic morning on one fever night
Though rhythm over laugh is by healing
Would you smile a word young prisoner
How long?Roughly how much do I have left? Is there any point in interfacing, interacting with and making use of this service you provide for me, when from the beginning, you held no pretensions? It has been very clear that slowly breaking on me, not willing to make a trace of effort at all. Why come when you were planning on leaving me so soon? I guess ominously, odiously, foreboding at the mirror with a “Soon…soon”.How long?4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sorry for being like this but you know what your like, but I cannot banish you, so I let you treat me this way, until you shatter yourself completely and theres nothing I can do about it and you leave me in inevitable disappointment I knew was coming. Roughly how long do we have left? No you’ll, you’d never tell me that, rather torment me for a while under your thumb and then just finally finish breaking…

I made a few friends

When all they know is how to say "I love you", no matter how hard it is to stay.
There was once a butterfly led astray, it would fly far, far, away.
I'd watch him fly over the hills, I'd watch him dive over the trees.
No matter where the butterfly flew, I'd always say: "Please don't fly away."

Everyone judges an onion by the outside.Everyone judges an onion by the outside.Everyone judges an onion by the outside.6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Does this mean that they look at only the looks of the opposite sex?
What they should be judging the onion by is how hard it is, the smell of it and whether it has any bruises or not.
This attention to detail should be taken into consideration while picking the best boyfriend/ girlfriend.
You should love the person for the attributes that they have and all of what makes them a whole.
If you dislike an onion you are most probably going off the first look.
This is not the best thing to do as it could potentially turn out to be the best thing that you have discovered.
It is what is on the inside that counts.
It counts for how long you will enjoy something,
And how long you will be happy.

setting paper sailboats in sidewalk streams,
trying to catch them before the gutter;
We never really knew where we were going

amid washed out skies and white out clouds,
some words could not be silenced

Stars slither like sizzling islands of butter
over the crest of your hip
where I hunger to sink my teeth into the flesh
and taste you - dripping
saccharine and sultry down my throat,
over my fingertips,
licked clean yet still perfumed
with the salty-skinned scent of your undulations.
Meaningless hours spent in dark spaces
where the world couldn't see through your bones,
all the time I spent inside
I may have been another loose-lief ship
sailing toward an unknown chasm,
as interchangeable as the color of your nails,
brush me away,
another stroke of adoring pink to veil my shape.
I keep searching in all the usual spots
for signs of your direction,
remnants of your body that might guide me

United we stand
One by one we fall
Things don’t go as planned
As we continue to brawl
Defying death till the very end
Walking amongst the weak hearted
Slowly letting ourselves mend
As we travel to the uncharted
Following one person throughout it all
Is that one the one we should be following
Are we only a thrall
Are we truly hollowing
We won in the end
At what cost
Now we must stand and defend
For we have found what needed to be lost
