10 things I hate about me
by: Victoria DiTomassi
I hate the way I talk to you
even when you're not there
I hate the way I sit at home
and wish that you would care
I hate my low self esteem
and the fact that I've lost my mind
I hate me so much I feel I'm dead
just waiting for the end of time
I hate the way I'm selfish and wrong
I hate it when I try
I hate it when I'm all alone
yet people see me cry
I hate it when I'm with myself
and no one bothers to call
But most of all I hate myself
so I don't have to hate you at all,
I see in myself the things I love,
the things I found in you,
I can't hate you though, but you made me hurt
and the hurt is what I hate
Inside of me you made me die
and now it's much too late.

your killing me
your ripping me apart
you walked into my life one day
and now I know nothing but pain
I tryed so hard not to let you in
your good looks was the start
of our terrible sin
I could take this razor and
cut you out
but your here so deep in my heart
my soul has withered
from all our pain
there is no peace for me
my tears have all dried up
there is no sleep
there is no escape for me
from the evil that is you
I wish you would
just leave me alone
take your pain and go
let me find the pieces
of my life
that you have scattered everywhere
the pieces that were once me

You're the greatest
Friend I'll ever know,
I care for you more than
I'll ever show.
I'm here for you,
As you're there for me,
I feel we are family,
You are a sister to me,
And as sisters can grow apart,
You'll always have a special place in my heart.
We laugh, we cry,
My fears are set aside,
Knowing there's nothing I can't face
As long as you are near.
I know that someday,
Our paths will fade away,
We will have to say goodbye,
Nothing lasts forever,
Just know this,
No matter what the end,
I feel privileged to call you
Love Is A SongLove Is A Song5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Love is a song.
It may start out as a whispering melody,
Or the ringing of bells.
Notes hinting of a sweet harmony.
Soft and innocent
A tune plays in the back of someone's mind,
The faintest notes.
The sweet song playing softly, softly.
It then becomes louder, and stronger.
The violin strings,
the beating of drums
clashing of symbols.
The feeling is so overwhelming
The orchestra of instruments begins to fade;
the brass and the drums fade
till you can hear no more.
Till only the sweet sound of the harp
and the soft lullaby of the violin can be heard.
The music plays softer and softer
but it doesn't fade.
A sad love storyIt hurts when someone you love so much doesn't feel the same,A sad love story10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It hurts even more when your heart's breaking and u can't cry,
One thing that haunts me every day and every night is your name,
I'd say I'm happy for you, but you'd know it's all a lie.
I told myself I would never come in between you and your girl,
I know your happy with her, I can see it in your eyes, I can hear it in your voice,
My heart breaks every time you say that she's your girl,
I wanted to be your girl but I guess I was never your first choice.
Looking at you, looking at her, I wondered if I could've made you happy,
Your smile, your laughter, your face and your voice is burned in my head,
But then again I don't think I could've ever made you happy,
Sometimes thinking about you and her makes me want to die instead.
I promised myself that I will continue loving you no matter what,
I also promised myself that I will never jeopardize your happiness,
I cannot lie but my love for you will never part,
I promise you I will

Because I'll love you foreverů
Or just for tomorrow.
For A FriendYou wandered into my life,For A Friend9 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And walked straight into my heart.
A single smile was all that was needed,
For our amazing friendship to start.
You gave me new hope,
When I though that all was lost.
You always held my hand,
During all the roads we've crossed.
You're my protector, my blood sister,
The one who reads my mind.
Who laughs at my lame jokes,
And helps me escape the daily grind.
So confident and loving,
A free spirit so pure.
Who shares my love of music,
Her one and only Cure.
I hope you'll always remember,
That you'll forever have a friend in me.
And I know if I asked the same of you,
You would always agree.
It's hard to imagine my life,
If it was without you,
We've always stuck together,
No matter what stupid shit we do.
I fear now that your leaving,
A fear I'm not willing to face.
Coz I know that if you left,
My world would be a duller place.
I know life can confuse you sometimes,
But I now you'll figure it all out in the end.
Because that's how ama

I hate your perfect teeth
I hate that your the only one who can look at me and see what's beneath
I hate it when your hair looks great
I hate when I see you out on dates
I hate the way you make me feel like you're the only one that's real
I hate it when you ostracize me
Even worse when you make me feel guilty
For thinking secret thoughts of you that your girlfriends would never let me do
I hate it when you're mean
I hate that I can't be your dream
I hate that no matter how hard I try you always make me want to die
I hate that she has taken you away
And there's no longer a reason to be here today
I hate that you have caused me to cut but I mostly hate that I can never truly hate you, no matter what

Can we please merge now? You wearing me without us being merged is really getting annoying!
I told you, youre just going to have to wait until they get here.
At least let me have the mouth so I can speak and have a little energy.
Ok, but you better let me go as soon as they show up, I said as I felt my face push out into the dragonic muzzle of the costume.
Drethan gave me this costume several months ago but he neglected to tell me that this thing was alive! The first time it took me over, it wasnt pleasant and I lost all self-control until by bull-headedness fought it off. I had been in and out of it a lot and I now have control over it but it still seemed sinister having its voice in my head. Even though it was a large one, I had been able to keep this secret from everyone but my parents. When I told them, they went to confront Drethan (and possibly get costumes of their own) but he was nowhere to be found. Hront
Being Unique Isn't HardBeing Unique Isn't Hard4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Their expressions display shock
They didn't expect it from me
I never told them to place me in a stereotype
I never told them what I'd do
They judge by what they see
What they think they know
But I am ME
You can't tell me what I should be
When I know myself better
I know which people I would accompany
I know who I trust, it may come as a surprise to you
But I don't exactly fit into anything you think I am
I do what I want to do, because it's who I am
I feel free to talk and be actual friends with anyone
Because I'm not afraid to be degraded
I know where I stand but it seems to me you don't
Don't classify me as some type of animal,
I'm unique, I don't want to live up to your expectations
I want to live up to mine, because truly and really
It is me that it matters to most
I'm not a nerd, a geek, a delinquent, a fashionista,
A model, an air-head, a popular person, a freak,
An attention grabber, a party person, an athlete,
A goody 2 shoes or anything else you want to place me in.

On raging winds the red clouds form. . .
Prepared now for a Demon storm. . .
The time has come for them to feed. . .
To rape the world and spread their seed. . .
Lightning streaks are tearing down. . .
They hit the earth to scortch the ground. . .
They rip the land on which we walk. . .
Creating pits where demons stalk. . .
Once in every 1,000 years. . .
They come to revel in your fears. . .
They walk upon the lands of men. . .
The earth is but a feasting den. . .
They torture first, then eat the dead. . .
They live for pain and thrive on dread. . .
They kill the good, recruit the bad. . .
From biggest man, to smallest lad. . .
They care not what is in your heart. . .
They thirst for tearing souls apart. . .
They bathe in pools of flowing blood. . .
As dark as pitch and thick as mud. . .
The clouds begin to slowly break. . .
The sun shines through in tiny wakes. . .
They crawl back to the pits that formed. . .
Thus ends another demon storm. . .

Every time I close my eyes
All I see are yours
They're so sad
I know why they are sad
So why are they haunting me?
Every time I think of you
All I see are your eyes
I take a journey through your mind
And come back with a picture of your eyes
They're so sad
I want them to be happier
They're always there
I can't get them out
They haunt my dreams
They're just too sad
Every time I try to forget
All I can do is remember
And then I see your eyes
They're so sad
I love you my friend
And I love your eyes too
No matter how sad they get
And I'm always here for you
Your eyes are hypnotizing me
Putting me into a trance
And the problem is that
They're so sad
And I can't forget them
painIts like having the skin shredded from you're body. It bares the soul. All of its intricacies, its hidden depths, the parts you tried so hard to hide from everything and everyone, even from yourself, exposed to all, unable to stay covered. A volcano, magma pouring forth, rolling, tumbling down the mountain's rocky side, slipping and sliding to the ground, destroying everything in its path. And, with it, comes the tears, falling like rain from normally stony eyes, now bright and alive with the fresh pain they've discovered. There is nothing left to hide behind, no way to valiantly pretend you don't care. You're open, shown to the world and all of its cruelty, unsheathed, unprotected, unable to stop the torrent of emotions flowing through you. And still you never learn.pain11 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

But legends were all they were. Dragons in fact were gentle creatures, and, contrary to what many thought, did not only have one form. When they wished, they could melt and twist their flesh, become human in shape with the palest skin, ice-blonde hair, piercing blue eyes, yet with their own individual beauty. But this wasnt unlike any other human - living in perpetual winter had given them all these features, making the very idea of spotting them an indefinite challenge. But it also meant a dragon could walk amongst humans, and they wouldnt even know it.

I loathe the undead.
They're always whining about "brains" and "guarrrgh" all the time and they're clawing at you with their nasty clammy maggoty-infested hands and biting your wife with their rotten yellow teeth and trudging along in a big stupid horde, losing their limbs all over the place and blocking traffic like they owned the world. Would you believe there was a zombie stampede on the I-41 this morning? Yeah, they held up traffic for like an hour. It was a huge stampede. They made me late to work and I think they almost cost me my job. Never mind that the boss has been later for less important reasons than a zombie stampede.
Some day I'm going to stick him in a room with a zombie in it and see how he likes it.
Anyway. I would have been later to work this morning ('cause I think that stampede's still going on, I mean they just said on the news half an hour ago that the last body count was like sixty, and that's way too many for just an hour-long stampede) if I hadn't gone and inst

the perfect night...the perfect night...5 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
i close my eyes
listening to my music
and when i open them again
you are there...
everything seems so perfect
the electricity is strong between us
you are dressed beautifully,
your hair flawless
your smile sweet and
we are holding hands
as we walk outside in the quiet
and the sun sets
fireflies light up the night
as the slight chill comes
i drape my coat over your shoulders
you blush slightly
and thank me quietly
i smile and cant resist any more
i stop walking
and you stop as well
and look back at me
with confused eyes
and simply adorable face
i lean in, eyes closed
and kiss you softly
our first kiss
this moment... so perfect
but when i lean back
and open my eyes
i am in my room
under my covers
looking up at my slowly moving fan
and i ask myself
'why...did i have to close my eyes then?'
'why...did the perfect night... have to stop?'
'why...couldn't i live in that dream forever?'

But now I come to think of the times when we were happy, I cry.
I cry because I know that we were once happy together.
I cry because I know that I will never see you again.
And now the pain is settling in.
