what lies under those baggy shirts.
[Look at them, over there. What are they, and why do I care?]
Keep them wondering
what your tastes really are.
[Lip gloss and candy floss, steam and sweat so lean, or perhaps someone in between?]
Keep being beautiful,
keep being you;
[Because you're going to have my support the whole way through.]
MinutesI'm thinking about your lips,Minutes6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
How they'll feel when I kiss them,
Warm, soft, sweet,
Slightly dampened by your tongue just seconds earlier.
I'm thinking about the noises we'll make,
Snuggled under the covers,
The quiet smack of our mouths as they move together,
The light whimpers as we tease and touch.
I'm thinking about waking up in your arms,
Feeling the beat of your heart against my ear,
Hearing your shallow breaths of slumber,
Inhaling the intoxicating scent of sleep on your skin.
Sixty seconds a minute,
Sixty minutes an hour,
Twenty-four hours a day,
I'm thinking of you.
The PainHave you ever felt the pain,The Pain5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The pain of being trapped,
Trapped in your own body,
The body you were born with,
The body everybody assumes to be you?
Your souls screams,
Heart is torn,
Both fighting to flee,
Flee from the bonds they are held with.
But it's impossible to run from your very own eyes.
Then somebody else,
A friend, a brother, a stranger or mother,
Says one little word,
And that little word pierces your mind,
Your heart, your soul
With barbed arrows,
Leaving you to bleed and scream some more.
In your tormented mind,
The solution is more pain,
Of the physical kind,
So you pick up a knife or a razor,
A shard or claws,
Just to paint jagged lines accross your skin.
You try to kill the body and free the mind,
Free the soul and the heart,
But the bonds are too tight,
All you can do is paint more lines,
Have you ever felt the pain?
Because until you have felt it,
The torture I go through,
Every minute in this forsaken life,
Don't tell me to ignore it.
Fluid AttractionSometimes it's strange not being straightFluid Attraction5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Often forgetting I like all genders
Not just one
Everywhere I look
Their gender, irrelevant
It's their style, how they stand out
Diversity is attractive
Breasts are gorgeous,
Women are sexy
Androgyne is hott,
The genderless are so fascinating
Sometimes a turn on
People just like me
Ones I understand
I forget how open I am
Often not realizing it isn't "normal"
Not everyone loves guys who are feminine
Or women who want mustaches
I may never be use to this
But I will always accept it
For this is who I am

One thing she would never sayMemories ever so chained downOne thing she would never say5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A heart with a partial frown
Looking at a bright new day
Her love for her will always stay
Cast upon a world that is slightly gray
A world from what she cannot stray
Chained down is her hearts sadness
Lost is her happiness
So gone that she can barely hang on
A sad love story with the repeat button on
The unforgiving beat sync'd with her heart
Slowly she is more torn apart
She lives day by day but one thing she will never say
"I wish i never said i love you that day"

It hurts so much
I'm in love with a boy,
He doesn't love me though
I just wish I had a girl
One who's hand I could hold,
One who's lips I could kiss
A girlfriend, one who I could love
But you know what?
I don't, I don't...
I don't have a girlfriend
What else do I know?
That I could never pretend to be a lesbian
I like girls, in fact I love women
But...I, myself, am not just a lady
A person is what I am
One who feels, one who craves
A person who likes girls and likes boys
I like everything in between
But that's not what I want
I want to love a woman,
and I want her to love me

to fit in,

Everyone around me as well as I are experiencing them. Yet, I stand alone, left to battle solo with another pressure.
The pressure to come out.
Walk straight on out of the closet, into an unforgiving world consisting of

I envy those who are not faced with this dilemma. I envy those who do not have to keep secrets and love behind closed doors. Most of all, I envy him.

The Saddest Smile'Did you love anyone?'The Saddest Smile6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Her expression becomes vague,
Your image swims before her gaze,
She smiles softly,
Closes her eyes.
One night only,
She wanted to spend with you,
Just one magical night,
For all the ones she couldn't have.
She wanted to lie by your side,
Feeling your lips tickle her ear,
As you whisper words of love,
Whilst holding her close.
She'd stop time in its tracks,
Just for this one moment,
Make it last a lifetime,
Or at least for as long as she could.
She imagines a kiss,
So sweet it takes her breath,
So soft it feels like heaven,
So loving it feels unreal.
The breeze brings her back to earth,
Caressing her face in the afternoon sun.
She chuckles sadly,
A concealing smile on her lips.
'No, I've never loved anyone. She says.

Sometimes, I give you a hug and I want to pull your hair out. I give you a smile and I want to cry a million tears. Sometimes, I give you a kiss and I wish it was so much more.
Sometimes, I hold your hand and I scream inside. I scream all the things I can never say to you, the things you'll never know. Sometimes, I hold your hand and I silently hope you'll ask what's on my mind.
Always, I miss you. Always, I wish you were with me. Never, will I have you. Never, would I try and make you mine.

Those lips, so soft and sweet,
The hollow of your neck,
And the smoothness of your feet.
Each finger on your hands,
Your shoulders, both so strong,
Those cheeks all flushed with red,
And the wetness of your tongue.
Your stomach as it quivers,
Those nipples, hard and high,
The circle of your navel,
And the flesh between your thighs.
I've tasted every inch,
Every luscious piece of skin,
I've kissed, caressed and stroked,
And licked from neck to shin.
So don't tell me that I'm crazy,
When my senses run quite rife,
'Cause the day that I first met you,
You brought my tastes to life.

A Drunken LullabyUpon the walls, forgotten imagesA Drunken Lullaby5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Of love life well damn torn
Memories drag down the halls
Beaten, Weary and worn
Where laughter rang down every hall
Your smile lit up the room
Now broken furniture and drunken words
Leave this place an empty tomb
Tears crawl down your face
Blue eyes; bloodshot red
Screams fill in my ears
My soul slowly going dead
Empty bottles lay round the floor
Your voice is going strain
Drunken cries of sorrow spit
Lies left to be explained
What happen to the smiles love?
Laughter killed by screams
Oh why did I let this happen!?
Relationship being torn at the seams
Poison runs down your throat
As you take another sip
Photo's engulfed by flames
A smile form on your lips
Memories drag down the halls
While rage is eating at me
Escape from this madness
Open my bloodshot eyes to see
That this love wasn't more than lust
So this is how it has to be
Don't worry about it my love
Just pack up my suitcase and take my leave

How am I supposed to control my breathing when every time I inhale I am assailed by the sweet scent of your hair?
How can I refrain from kissing your neck when my lips are but a centimetre away from it?
How can I hide it when my eyes betray my desire?
How do I keep my hands off your skin when only the thin fabric of your t-shirt is standing in my way?
How can I stop myself from pressing close to you when I can feel your thighs brushing against mine?
How will I stay quiet when my body throbs with need?
How do I keep my mouth closed when the words 'I love you' are trying so hard to escape?
How will I let go when my heart tells me I can't?
How will I survive when it's time for you to leave?
Please, tell me how, because I'm scared to death I'll never know the answers.

She watched me, confusion written on her face. I continued our momentarily paused walk at a much faster pace than before, gritting my teeth and enduring a horde of angry thoughts inside my head. She caught up with me and opened her mouth to speak, but I cut her off.
You don't have to tell me, I already know the answer... I avoided her gaze as we walked swiftly to my house, which was only a few more minutes down the road. I shouldn't have said anything, I muttered, more to myself than her, its stupid of me to think that it could ever work, that it would have been possible... She remained silent, and thanks to my averted gaze, I couldn't gauge her reaction.

Forget who I am and whoever once was

I am not allowed to just be me
Whether Im at home, school, or at the beach

Only to realize the world is exactly the same
So I shall flee to the only place I will be safe
To the only arms that can negate the pain
In this world that hates us so
What have we done wrong
Other than let our love grow strong?
I Love Her
And She Loves me.

Why I never told you
Why I wasn't acting like your best friend
Why I could keep on lying,
Closing you out.
But, I couldn't answer
I loved you too much to destroy the only constant I had
For years you were my rock
Keeping me going
Telling me I wasn't useless
I was beautiful
Yet, you wouldn't take my silence
Your icy eyes pierced my own puddles
Slicing our bond in two
Severing our hearts
You asked why I never told you
Why I hid from you,
The one that cared a damn
Tears leaked from my eyes
Blearing the canvas of your beauty
Words never reached my lips
The syllables I longed to scream at you
Grab you and,
hold us close until the pain was squelched
Yet, nothing happened
Instead I stood looking up at you
While you looked down at me
We no longer stood as equals
You asked why I never told you
Why I let they beat me up
Break my wrist and slam me into the walls
Screaming hurtful things at me
As blood streamed from the cuts
The scars that would never heal

A whimper, a cry, a giggle a laugh,
Both our hopes were torn in half.
When both our kings took back their approval.
Each one awaiting a new rival.
