PorcelainIvory skin, gray with cold.
Painted smile, glass eyes staring back.
Stitched clothes and icy hands.
Never meant to speak, only meant to be told.
Pick her up, put her down.
Hug her, love her, drop her.
Never to stir, she sits like stone.
Can't breathe the breath of life, like she drown.
The toy takes its abuse,
Her smile never fades,
Perfect in her imperfection.
Long hair, with its fake paragon hues.
Her feet dangle the edge,
Waiting to be picked up again,
Our little breakable baby,
A porcelain doll, caught in an unbreakable pledge.
UselessYou are never here,Useless7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You are always over there.
So far out of reach,
All I am is a useless breach.
Take my hand and see my eyes,
You will realize all the lies.
I wish to fly away from here,
But like I said its never near.
Strangled breath and tears that sting,
It's as if I had lost my right wing.
Can't you see I've always craved,
Every time I see you, I cave.
I wish you'd realize the meaning,
Of all the shared nights, every evening.
I won't touch you, so I sit,
And cry for everything that hurts, the every bit.
I taste the bitterness on my lips,
And I know the only thing I can do is give useless tips.
All I've done is mess up my life,
And now all I want to do is end it with a knife.
I wish you could see,
What all you mean to me,
I wish I could tell you,
I wish I didn't have too, I wish you already knew.
When I sit around at night I get confused,
All I feel is blank feelings, I'm afraid of being used.
Can't you see what all you mean to me,
I wish I could be...everything you want me

My God, I've got to pee. Not that you wanted to know. Well maybe you did so you would have the chance to get out of the way before I let loose, and you know. Peed. Not that I'm going to. I'll wait. Until the bus comes. I only drank four. One, two three, four, no wait. Five. Five cups of coffee. Large ones. That would probably explain why I've got to piss so bad right about now wouldn't it. Oh well, never mind. I needed them.
I got two hours of sleep last night. Two the night before. In fact I think I've averaged about two, three hours for the week. Its probably the coffee that's done it. Ever since the little bakery on the corner started giving free refills all

It's not the hardest word.
My honesty is all but broken,
And I look away with eyes so blue,
I cannot say with these tears I cry.
To say sorry,

And I know in my heart so black,
I should apologise but I'd rather fly.
To say no,
It's not the hardest word.
My addiction drives you insane,
And I feel that my ears bleed so red,
As I struggle to answer your one question: why?

A Forgotten Past RememberedI remember waiting, just sitting in my little chair with both hands pressed against the window. The perfect picture of an excited child eager for what was coming. I remember waiting and waiting for hours watching each car that passed by and praying with all my little heart that they would pull into the parking lot,but they never did. Sometimes I can still feel the horrible disappointment that seemed to consume my heart and drag it further and further down as I walked back to the car with tears in my eyes, wondering why mother never came. Little did either of us know that was our last chance to see one another.A Forgotten Past Remembered4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Sometimes life takes us down a path we never thought we would have to go down. Just when we think things can't get any worse then they already are, but something I've learned is that it can always get worse only I learned it the hard way.

Even though we both agreed not to start another mess.
Its better for me to remember you by what made you one of the best,
And forgive myself for all the times I made you detest.
I'll remember you as the sweet voice comforting me through the phone,
But don't remember me as a cancer that wouldn't ever leave you alone
I'll remember you as the warmth in my arms as I say hello,
So don't remember me as the child who cried every time you said goodbye.
Everything started off as an accident maybe,
And maybe it ended because we were both a little too crazy;
I'd tell you stupid things and made you ungodly angry,
And I'd get you angrier by saying "I love you and all your personalities",
Time would pass by maybe an hour or two,
You would call me back and say "We love you too".
I'll remember you and I'll remember the times,
So please don't forget me, don't forget the times,
Please don't forget how I'm sorry I couldn't pay you back,
Lets forget the love t
The BucketA teacher once said to me,The Bucket3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"A life is like a bucket."
I have learned over the years that this is true.
If you give someone a compliment, or say or do anything kind,
You pour an infinitesimal yet meaningful amount of liquid into that person's bucket.
But alas, those who insult
And rip apart hope,
They dip into the bucket, and take out that precious liquid gold.
Once that person runs out, you in turn cause their self-destruction.
You could lead that one innocent person to take their own life away.
Just one little smirk or look of disgust
Could leave them bone dry.
You may think it funny now: to insult and make fun,
But imagine the feeling you'd feel when you see that person's face--
Plastered all over the news.
That nervousness and guilt
Creeping up your spine as you get shivers all over.
It's unbearable, no?
You know you no-handedly helped cause someone's death.
So think before you say something--anything.
If it hurts someone enough,
You could dip into their bucket
And leave it

The grey clouds washed the skies
and I reached in desperation,
my breath comes in in shallow gasps
in silent suffocation.
I meant the words that traced my lips
I'd never regret a thing,
and though you think your silence kills
it doesn't even sting.
The thunder roaring in my brain
is what makes me hurt inside,
words or not I need you not

The rain is overflowing
as it fills up to the brim,
I saw your disposition
and it made our future grim.
The lightning shined inside me

the hand I held beside me

Your cold kisses me like you did
my veins run blue with ice,
that crooked way you smile
made clear your evident vice.

I'm too deep in to pull me out
so covet the tears that I've cried.

Holding onto your deteriorating past denies it the chance to decay and bloom from the remnants that are leftover.
Your hands don't seem quite so soft and your fears not so subtle. They're rising to the surface along with all the other baggage you deny holding because you're terrified to let it out. Its scratching at your skin from the inside, tearing apart your soul and dancing through your veins. It's tearing up your heart with the claws you just let grow and its holding onto your lungs tightly until there isn't enough room for a last breath.
This could have meant something special and delicate. Like the feeling of skin on skin and when you can hear their heartbeat as your h

the bird's singing,

We found her dancing

We found her beating,

so quiet and dumb.
We found her crying,
with her head hung low,
and we found her dying,
under the willow.
Hall of MirrorsNo matter where I run or hide, I cannot escape my face.Hall of Mirrors6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Whether laughing, leering, or sobbing is not important;
It remains to haunt me, reminding me I have no strength or grace.
No matter how hard I run, there is always the upward slant;
A bitter slope forged by angry words and shameful pause.
I often wonder at the mighty barriers I build,
Devoid of proper pain or just cause.
No matter how noble or goodwilled
My intentions are at first, they warp and shift,
Becoming the whims of a heartless wretch.
Between all and me lies a bottomless rift;
No matter where I trek to fetch
Some sturdy wood for a brand-new bridge,
My integrity plummets off the lofty ridge.
New York BabyShe lost faith in the northern skies,New York Baby3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That faded from blue to grey,
And whispered tales of misty mountains
Covered in silence and snow,
She lost faith in the empty faces,
She met along the concrete streets,
That welcomed her home, to the world,
She wished she'd left behind,
She lost faith in the pixie smiles
That were filled with malicious dreams
Lies that spoke in half rhymes, and half truths,
And never thought to question.
She lost faith in the grass,
That died beneath her feet,
And the flowers that frosted over,
as they broke under her touch.
She lost faith in the human race.
Until she sat on the tower block top,
And watched the golden penny drop,
Painting the world a glowing orange,
And casting a ruby shadow over the grey
She had wished to leave behind,
Illuminating the world she was drawn too,
And painting a smile upon her lips.
Faceless FriendsFaceless FriendsFaceless Friends3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Those who are closest may be the farthest away
And the ones right there with you ever distant.
The people whom one cares for are never truly consistent
Yet sometimes the faceless friends are who stay.
The people who you don't know, but talk to every day;
The ones who you'd do anything for, to any extent.
The ones who, when they're gone, you wonder where they went
The ones who you never truly see face-to-face.
Our advanced world is a funny place, where opposite ends may become closest
And a person nations distant can be the greatest friend,
And the people right by you are sometimes unnoticed.
But the faceless friends, the ones for whom a young man wrote this,
The ones upon he can constantly and truly depend;
The people who, thought farthest away, are truly friends of the best.

RebuttleStupid girl, youre just a stupid girl.Rebuttle6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Look at you crying over those boys.
Theyre not even worth it.
Why do you try so hard?
To see through life, this veil upon,
Your eyes the world has cast it on.
To show you what they want to be,
Whilst rather that you know should be.
The difference is, the veil did work,
Unto its end, its purpose served,
To blind you wet with burning tears,
And hide from you the one that yearns,
Across from you, amidst that crowd,
You see all day and wish away,
He stands for you, and looks at you,
With pleading love inside his heart.
His life like yours a halting start.
He cries for you and bleeds for you
Just to be more close to you
But through your eyes, your tear-stained eyes
You cant see past the worlds dark ties

The various shades of brown, suddenly turned bright.
I stare in admiration from the back, watching from afar.
Something that can never be mine, my dear and shining star.
Someone I have held up so high, for so many long days.
The same person I had loved and adored in oh so many ways.
But I was always so far away from you and your blissful world,
Because I could never be good enough, so here I lie curled.
For once I was allowed to taste a sweet forbidden fruit,
And hold it to my breast proud, I had won my pursuit.
But then it was ripped away, and shining turned to black.
Oh, how much I had begged and wished for it to all come back.
Still, I feel the dark empty hole that you had left behind,
And wish for it to be filled, until the pain I bear in mind.
All the pain at just having a small delicious taste,
I will not have the whole fruit, and fall to my disgrace.
