across 3000 miles
of what i used to think would sink me
into some kind of peace
you don't know how this haunts me
ink can't say enough
to rid my head of all the frustration
i'd mold myself cracked 3000 times over
if it meant your hand could finally fit into mine

it is so hard to be okay
when all i've got are cigarettes
the voices of strangers
and memories of you
it's so hard to be okay
when you hate yourself
for not being okay
all i want is to hear you say
that you love me
so that for five seconds,
i can believe it;
just a few moments
of being alright
i wonder what you would do
with the letters i have written
but never given you
with the truth that i have known
but never told
if i swim
until my arms could no longer
hold me up - you wouldn't
even have a body to say goodbye to
i wonder what you would do
if i wrote right here
that it was you
i wonder what you would think about
and what we have done; the love
that we have destroyed
with our cowardice and our weakness
like a windowsill plant
left out in summer
i wonder what you would think
if the last thing i tol you
was that i loved you
god damn you kissed me hard
when you left
as if you knew it would be the last time
what if it was
the last time
you would never have to catch another moth for m

Oh, gorgeous goddess!
How your beauty tantalizes me!
Leaving a dumb statue
In my place.
How can You,
O Great and Majestic One,
Sitting on your golden throne,
In the sky,
Have created such a girl
As the one I see
Oh how my heart flutters!
Sweet angel, you gave
Wings to my
You blessed a poor soul,
With that wonderful magic
Only you possess.
I will give
I will cross the world for you,
I will serve you,
I will think only of you,
I will do anything for you!
If only I can
Hold your delicate hand,
Skin so smooth,
Soft as silk,
And be with you,
Every step of your way,
To comfort you

I Don't Believe in LoveI don't believe in love... Atleast... I don't think I do.I Don't Believe in Love2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Yet I constantly have to catch myself when I'm thinking about you.
You aren't even mine!
Hopefully this fades with time
'Cause otherwise I'll go insane
Why can't I get you off my mind?
I don't believe in fairy tales or other delusionary fables
Please believe that I'd get over you, if only I were able
I know you're getting angry- believe me, I would too
So, if you could just stop being sweet, I'll try and get over you.
I don't believe in love... Why is that so hard to believe?
Maybe it's because I love you, even though you don't love me.
You make me feel so warm inside
It's kinda strange, but I won't lie
I'd love it if you would be mine
'Cause I think I'll be yours for the rest of my life.

(i tossed and turned to the swift beat of the setting
she drew picasso canvases on my peeling lips
with her fingertips,
and her ginger breath was on my ear as she
muttered that being with someone so
dangerous made her feel safe.
it was always you, i would tell her,
and she would smirk with her two front teeth
and there were doves and swan feathers falling
in her eyes.
i just wish that when she left me
she would've left a trail of
who i was before behind--
but it's okay now,
because i lit the match she gave me as a birthday present
with the musty inverted cross on the centerfold,
and i burned all of the remaining feathers

Obliterated; destroyed –
I’ve thought about what’s to come
For the remaining portion,
And dream to keep dreaming.
But ho~! I have found Freedom
In the eyes of Hope.
I feel spoilt with
Joy and redemption –
A conflagration of content.
Despite the things I realise,
Dropping me down lower,
You keep me above the line –
You keep the sanity in,
And the insanity at bay.
I just hope that
One day –
Many days –
I can return

I'm ready to restart.
Then I met you at last,
And your beauty touched my heart.
We started off great,
Your love was well needed.
But now it's too late,
I found out that you cheated.
Then you have the nerve to ask,
Can we still be friends?
Girl, I'm putting you in the void of my past,
You'll regret making this end.
You will pay for your sin,
But not by my hand.
You'll hop from guy to guy,
None will treat you as I have.
I gave you love, I gave you care,
You settled for less.
I'll work harder. I'll dream, I'll dare
My revenge will be mass success.
And when you realize what you've lost,
You'll come running back.
Saying Michael, I'm sorry I double crossed,
And I'll reject you without slack.
I'll move on, I'll look good,
You will never break me.
I'm a Guardian, Swimmer, and Student
Goodbye you, hello me.

He stands with open arms
Waiting for the blushing girl to come and make him warm
She stares down at her dirty white shoes
Breathing the clean, cool, mint air
Quietly dreaming and biting her lip
She runs her fingers through her hair
He treads across the gravel sea
She moves herself to where he'll be
And just the way the fates decreed
Love is wakened from her sleep
Two hearts beating, side by side
One is yours, the other mine
I promise to love you faithfully
And be yours 'til the end of time.

I gladly pitched myself
Into the Lacuna Coil
An empty spiral
Sucking me in,
Like a Supermassive Black Hole.
The results were always the same.
Another Lonely Sunday.
Watching my Shattered force field fade in Evanescence.
It is madness, trying to keep my head above The Water.
Dancing through an Orchard Of Mines.
Breaking under the hands of Benjamin, Dancing With The Devil, whose name was Caleb.
Screaming for Morpheus, the Overdose poisoning my mind, my body, my will to live.
Begging them to look me in the eyes, and accept my Demons.
And I cried.
My legs throbbing,
Threatening to give out,
From Running Up That Hill.
Looking for the Silver Lining.
My eyes are open.
And it feels better than love.
This, Haunted Hurricane,
Tearing at my lungs,
Sucking my soul from my lips.
Feeling the knife Cut deep,
How Should I Feel?
Trapped in my Castle of Glass,
Picking at my Open W

but unfortunately a butterfly can’t count the spots on it’s wings
and i wont let him count them for me
because i can’t depend on him forever
but i don’t know how to let go just yet
so i left tallies on my arms every time he made me feel like a princes
but i ran out of room so i started using paper
and i’m trading my sharpie for a lavender crayon because
he makes me feel pastel
when he moved away i stopped painting my nails because i thought
my world had lost color forever
but now i get to talk to him even just sometimes
so i keep my nails the lightest purple i can find
because it reminds me that
he isn’t gone forever

Angel in disguise
I still remember his eyes
Even his most innocent touch
Would make me blush
He's too perfect for this Earth
But he doesn't see his own worth
I want to kiss away the unshed tears in his eyes
I wish he knew that the things I say to him are not lies
LoveMy thoughts stood silent for those few peaceful moments. As he talked to me, I didn't seem to notice his words, but more how he spoke them. When he spoke certain letters his mouth would curl up at both corners. His lips never met between letters. I noticed how his hand would point and wave. I heard hi words but I didn't notice them. I decided it was time. I looked at him and I hugged him and when I slipped away I whispered "I love you" softly and kindly in his ear. We were finally standing on my front porch. The snow fell softly and stuck to his eyelashes. It made him even more beautiful. He looked at me and his eyes had a sparkle in them. They turned glassy and he started to walk away but stopped. He turned around and walked back up my steps. He kissed me. It was beautiful. Then he whispered even softer than I, "I love you, too." We both stared for a while. I noticed how his hair caught the snow and how the tip of his nose was red from the cold. He shivered and when he stared at me heLove3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

And kiss all of your flaws with semi-colons
Because I like the way they look.
I want to write your name into novels
About the way your eyes
Melt me into elements
I am atomic beneath your gaze
[and you make my dopamine levels go all silly]
My chemistry is no match for the way you walk when you're happy
I want to paint you in poetry and kiss your soul with the words
I want to live inside the structure and make you believe in happy endings
I want to exist in you because you are my favorite puzzle and my best poem

I watched the adhesive melt away like butter.
Greasy and fattening.
Reminds me of someone like you.
That was quite cold and butter.
See what I did there?
You’re not fat, you’re just round.
Very much so round.
But I liked that about you….
I’m sure you didn’t even smirk.
Maybe because it wasn’t funny.
Or maybe because now you hate me.
This was supposed to be serious...
But, to be fair,
You hurt me first.
To end it the way you did,
And the reasoning behind it.
Was that the truth?
I saw you with a girl the other day.
And another one on Friday.
You stole a few glances,
And I can’t say I didn’t do the same.
But my heart cracked and sunk
Because I remember what you said when I asked,
"What are the chances that we will ever happen again?"
And how I half-heartedly agreed.
So, I suppose accquaintances

Perfect MemoryMy heart shaped necklacePerfect Memory1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
with jewels up the side
sparkling in the light
I want to wear
not cause I still love him
or wished he still loved me
it was begging for me to wear it
the memory still fresh in my mind...
We danced all night
we were gliding over the dance floor
me in my silver dress
oh how it showed when the light hit it
it flowed outward when he spun me
a perfect memory
I told you
I wish this night would never end
but my feet and shoulders ached
but we danced though the pain
to every song
not daring to take a break
your hands on my hips
my on you shoulders
beautiful just beautiful
eleven slow dances in a row
my heart would pound when he looked at me
and he gave me this beautiful necklace
in a white box
the best night of my life
I was happy
but it was the worst night of my existent...
so I walk away
leaving the necklace in the box
you gave me
tears roll down my face as I walk away
from this prefect memory

It's not that I miss you being mine, it's that I miss having you around.
I miss being just another person to you, so that I could watch you light up every room you walked into with the smiles of those who saw you.
I miss listening to your laugh and seeing your face and knowing that we were all part of something bigger -- a family of friends, where even those who don't talk are connected by being a part of our group.
I miss when you didn't have to avoid me to be happy.
I miss when you weren't afraid of my presence because you're hurt by the past.
I wish you were indifferent to me.
If you were indifferent, I could be just another person. I wouldn't keep you away because I wouldn't matter. I wouldn't even cross your mind. I would be nothing.
I wish I was nothing to you. Being nothing is better the something I am. I'd rather be inconsequential than be someone whose presence brings you pain.
I want you to stop thinking of me, because I can't stop thinking of you.
