Dear My Good Friend...Dear my good friend,Dear My Good Friend...5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Thank you for being there when I needed you. Whenever I wanted to take out the wall and beat up the badass in the class, despite the evident death wish. Thank you for the pat on the back when I cried. Embarrassed. I prided myself to hide my tears. That's nothing to be proud of now. Thanks for the hugs when I felt like taking a stab at the bricks with a blunt butter knife that I've never used for butter.
I felt alone. I don't like looking weak. Women have just as much right to be as strong as men. No less than they are, and maybe greater. But everyone is weak.
and everything in between.
So thank you for being the friend that I could vent to. That I could rant about how much I hated someone or how frustrated my parents were making me. The stress in my life that health teachers blabber on and on and on about. Telling you, "Deal with it in positive ways."
Life is just unfair and it's unfair that it is.
And I want you to know that I'm there for you.

I am unloved.
I will not be decieved into believing that
Someone will one day care for me.
It is inevitable that
Tomorrow will be as bad as today was, and
It is obviously foolish to predict that
Anything can improve,
The idea of kindness is
Not a path to greatness.
Doing the minumim is
To try my hardest is
There really anything important outside my own needs?
The benifit to the question; is
A greater power actually out there?
Has yet to be discovered, and besides, there is
A great reward for narcisism.
No one is more important than myself.
It is foolish to believe that
There will be something to look forward to
When I die.
Let's reverse this frame of mind, shall we?

for my picture I did paint,
it is a picture of silence.
Hear the echoes of the sound
you can not see.
For it's the echo of what is within me.
Listen to your heart's whisper.
Look at you, mirrored as me.
Be all you are, but empty.
Return from nowhere to this
Painted life set from darkness.
Echoes fill this void with sound
Return to life return unbound.
I Was Born A Hopeless Romanticbut i've since dropped the "Romantic"I Was Born A Hopeless Romantic3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the urge to kiss you
drives me insane,
but that's not even
the silliest part;
You change too much,
too soon, too "too"
but never just right
To the MoonI know you speak to the moonTo the Moon5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And though I hear not your words-
Filled with anguish, pain, and regret
Lost amongst the starry night,
I feel them. Have always felt them.
You spoke of a dead passion, I know
That once burned strong between us
Laid now to rest, but not all forgotten
As embers do, dying through the night
Only to greet the dawn light cold as ash.
But the breath of a new day my old friend
Yields more promise, those tear-strained eyes
Will learn to see that the future still holds
All the opportunity for you and for me.
You spoke of waiting and watching-
Of the nightly procession of the stars,
To point to you the way to move forward
And you spoke of mourning for an eternity...
Be strong and be not still but move
With me move forward into the future
Where you will find hope still waiting.
Don't you see, I don't want to wait
An eternity, but just a little while longer,
If to only finally hear you say goodbye.

i don't believe in language.
i don't believe in religion.
i don't believe in science.
hypocrites invented math,
and letters are fabricated.
fairytales are for children,
and chemicals don't exist.
i don't believe in art
i don't believe in love
i don't believe in life,
and i sure as hell don't
believe in death,
my eyes reflect light, not color.
my brain controls my emotions.
existence is a fucking nightmare
only a coffin can wake me from.
i'm just an imaginary poet;
faithless but not Fateless,
chimeric but not apathetic
(though i love to pretend)
i don't believe in anything,
phone calls from a ghost,
radio songs you listen to,
and phantoms of History,
i believe in you
even if you don't believe in me.
Graduation DayWe must learn to embrace the past and yet we must learn to let it goGraduation Day4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And the future, we must choose to accept it as such- what we shall never know
For we must learn to see time itself as testimony and time itself is bittersweet
Whereupon the passing hours and days of our lives, never once will repeat
Look closely now upon this time not as a constant but more so as a state
Where there is change always surrounding you, yes, yet this change is great
For at the end of one station in life there always harkens a brand new start
Let joy wash away whatsoever feelings of sadness or doubt lie within your heart
Surrounded by your proud parents and your peers, offer praise and due deference
Cherish these memories and allow every opportunity to shape your providence
For your love of learning will continue forth upon your voyage in all of life's pursuits
So that one day you shall look back and realize all your dreams have born ample fruit
Phoenix of Rebirth ReawakenedYou spread your wings to fly.Phoenix of Rebirth Reawakened4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Once more, once more you try.
Through Rain through storms
Through Pain through scorns
you still carry forth. let out a loud cry!..
On the ground you look up to the sky once more
to find reason why your amber-fading heart is so sore...
Death comes twice, thrice, eternity..
reborn, rebirth, re-immaturity.
Set flight your blazing wings in the sky once more
spread it wide, once more you soar.
