The empty art book, hidden away,
The camera, stashed in the corner...
The broken watch on the table,
The stacks of unfinished projects,
The soft, squishy teddy bear
and the playlists, forever on repeat,
All saying the things she dare not tell.
Bleeding Emotions.Cold steelBleeding Emotions.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've been hurting
To see you
Your sharp edge
Your cold surface
You're like a drug
My own drug
My best friend
I pick you up gently
Rolling up my sleeves
Sleeves that hide my pain
Sleeves that hide everything
I drag you accross ivory
Slicing through me
Crimson beads appearing
Bleeding the emotions away
More and more
Cut, cut, cut
I feel relief
Something I can't
So I hide you away
From curious eyes
Until next time
My lovely friend
Unfolding- 2 LoveI've been waiting for you so long.Unfolding- 2 Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've wished for your kiss.
I wanted to feel your arms round me.
We been talking for so long.
A smile curved upon my lips with every text you sent.
My heart skipped a beat every time I thought of you.
We been through so much, in such a short short time.
Our digital whirlwind romance.
But I'm happy we gave our love a chance.
My every thought was of you, wondering what we do.
I stayed with you no mater what you did.
You broke my heart... Then we put it back together.
I'm watching our love unfold.
I'm waiting to see what happens.
I want a life with you.
I wanna be your favorite girl.
On the day I met you, I didn't know what to do.
I smiled so shyly at you. But you knew what to do.
You wrapped me in your arms and held me for so long.
That's when it happened.
The moment I'd been waiting for...
You held me close and looked in my eyes.
I felt butterflies.
You leaned in close and brought your lips to mine.
The softest kiss...
My greatest wish...

Raindrops hit the windows
A child is slipping on the wet leaves
But we are save inside
Me in your arms.
You whispered nothing could happen to me
Nothing could hurt me as long as you're with me
You promised you'd always protect me
While you kissed away a tear.
Snowflakes rest in your hair
The reflected light sparkles in your eyes
As we walk around the frozen lake
Hand in hand.
You whispered something happened
Something that'd change a lot
You promised it wasn't my fault
While you strictly avoided to look in my tear-filled eyes.
The earth fills with colors
The sun warms the air
While my world stays grey and cold
My soul remains black and frozen
Something happened to me
I'm hurt now you're gone
You lied to me
You didn't save me
People full of joy and passion
As the sunlight shines through my windows
While I'm completely lost.
You brought me to hell
I know that now
It was my fault
I see that now.
As I hold my arm into the sunlight
The blood sparkles

I don't need me anymore
And neither do you
You never did
Tear me down mentally
I am nothing now
Take all that I have
All that I am
It only takes 1 pound of pressure to pierce human skin
And only it takes 1 moment alone to make me cry
I may not be made of glass or paper
But I am made of flesh and blood
I'm shattered just as easily
I am not a skyscraper
I'm the Twin Towers
I can't rise above
I've burned down
I'm dead inside
I can't take it
I can't stand on my feet anymore
They're too bloody and bruised
I've crawled into a corner
Hugging my knees hard
Crying broken sobs
I want to scream my voice hoarse
To let out all my unspoken pain
But I can never do that
Someone will hear me
And I can't be not-perfect
I can never be human
Or make mistakes
Doing things perfectly is all I have
I don't have anything else
Nothings that matters
No smarts or looks
Not down here
They can't see me on the inside
They don't see me on the outside

Cold stares from judging eyes,
Deaf ears to screaming cries.
They are blind to the truth,
The pain in my crushing youth.
The person I don't want to be,
But all they see to be me,
The cuts and burns on my arms,
The blood and soot on my palms.
"Cheer up" they chant as one,
All I want is to be gone.
Away from all the endless lies,
Rise up into the perfect skies.
They can't comprehend my torment,
The reasons for my infernal descent.
Why my head screams to itself,
Sat there on an icy shelf.
No love, no life - Do I dare?
No matter what, they don't care.

I have a lot of hopes and dreams,
To achieve them, forever it seems.
Every day I keep trying and trying,
I'm telling the truth, I'm not lying.
My main dream is to be an animator,
Just drawing, I'm no good as a painter.
It'd take a lot of artistic skills,
Some people say my talent gives them chills.
My biggest hope is for enemies to be friends,
This hope will stay with me until the very end.
I want my friends forever and ever,
This hope is as delicate as a feather.
Dreams are hard to achieve,
But you will if you believe.
Work hard and I do mean it,
Cos someday you will succeed it.
It's ironic, my middle name is Hope,
Probably that's why I can cope.
Hopes and dreams, hopes and dreams.
To achieve them, forever it seems.

Now that you've gone away
You've torn my soul apart
And my life became grey.
I love you more than life
Please come back to me,
I need you to survive
Or just set me free.
I'm just an empty corpse
Now that you walked away
I just want to forget
This is for what I pray.
A Thousand Words Paint A PictureI can’t draw nor paint.A Thousand Words Paint A Picture2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My time is always wrong.
I’m always tongue-tied.
So I’ll reveal myself through words.
If a picture speaks a thousand words,
Then I’ll make
A thousand words paint a picture.
I’ll tell you of the sunrise,
The sunset, the twilight.
I’ll show you the magic,
Of the four seasons.
All in black and white.
Let the words I write paint a picture for you.
I’ll form the words,
As a maestro weave melodies together,
So you can understand my heart.
Will you see the picture between the lines of words that I have written just for you?
The picture of my feelings towards you.

My reason to endure such chill treason
The beauty of ice and snow forgetting to dress-up
Someone bring me some cough syrup

Dreaming Of Blood
I lay solemnly asleep-
Crimson droplets rain down
The heavens are weeping for me-
Releasing all the tears that I won't
I'm cradled by the secrets from within
And the promises of hope that I'm afraid to sing
Along with those memories that bring me to the very brink
My closed eyes peer up at the sun-stained sky
Painting a portrait of a desired life
Yearning to feel what it's like to live without strife
As my unconscious hand reaches for a trustworthy knife
I open myself up for the first time
And experience my body shiver and cry
A RED RELEASE! / A LIQUID SCREAM!
A CHAIN UNLEASHED! / A NIGHTMARE FREED!
Casting away the years of past consequences
I hit rock-bottom many times before- so I'll do anything to become painless
I temporarily let go and stop another era of darkness
And I can feel once again from acting so careless
I consider it harmless if I survive my own carna
HistoryThere are momentsHistory3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
that you wish never end
Then there are moments
that couldn't go by fast enough.
Through at the times we have seen
and all the lives we have lived.
Time seems to be
the one thing that never changes.
Time likes to repeat itself
going hour by hour, second by second.
They say, today is history
but tomorrow is a mystery.
History likes to repeat itself,
so maybe tomorrow isn't such a mystery.
How I feelHe held a gun right to my headHow I feel3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He said to me, "You should be dead."
I look around, but can't escape
I never wanted him to rape
He held me down, and played his game
And since that day i'm not the same
I've seen things I shouldn't have to see
But the only one who ever knew was me
I faked a smile everyday
For I couldn't stand for you to see me this way
All I want to do is close my eyes
It's like an eternal torture that never dies
These voices that fill my head
Telling me I'm way better off dead
This pain of living hurts my heart
Should I have ended it from the start?
But some how I manage to get by
Going through everyday about to cry
One day maybe it'll be okay
But of course that day is not today
How much blood can I shed
Before I'm lying on the floor dead?
Will this pain ever go away?
Maybe tomorrow but not today
I start to cry knowing, he'll kill me one day
I guess that's all i have to say....
Thinking A crimson drop, down your armThinking3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What have you been thinking of?
Have you been thinking of when others first asked,
"What, are you gonna go cut yourself?"
Have you been thinking of all the times you wish you could run,
But didn't have the strength to stand up
When there wasn't enough time to cry,
Because everyone you knew turned their back and was looking for you,
Now being their prey- having to run.
Have you been thinking back to all the yells, screams and shouts that reverberated through the walls of the house, coming from your parents room
As you waited and prayed quietly under the covers, waiting for it all to end?
Of that fateful night, when you were stripped of your innocence
Only so old to know about it, but never one to try
Until you realized that you didn't have a choice.
Of the purple stains left on pale skin, under the heavy coat and bracelets
That weren't your fault, that weren't from your hands
That weren't your sins, but only brought upon yo

Dash across the roofs,
Death defying leaps.
Take the final swoop,
To hear the final beat.
Hidden in the dark.
Without a sound,
Awaiting the mark,
To be found.
A flash in the night.
The pierce of a blade,
Ending the fight,
Of a game well played.
We await to fulfill the deed,
Of the Assassin's Creed.

Die with me on the darkest days
As we bask in each other's light.
Die with me when the stars align
And all the world begins to cry.

When angels tears fall from the sky.
Die with me as time ticks away
Those resplendent twilight hours.
Die with me as the pine trees sway
In the fields of golden flowers.
Die with me as I hold you tight
So we may share our last goodnight.

Child, fallen slain to my silver blade
Stained is your vest, such deathly shade....
My tears are wasted on sins and pride....
As I kneel in death, at your very side....
Fire that glows in the dim of cold....
What prayer sent, does tomorrow hold?
What innocence within your eyes
But stone hearts and shattered lies...
Your blood the truth to humanity...
Trampled by a cruel reality...
What pride is stained by innocent red?
That tramples roses till they’re dead?
My veil is white yet shattered…
It’s scorned yet so tattered…
Tainted by your demise…
I weep your sacrifice…
Oh child, of the far off skies…
You pain me, with your eyes…
And how they shed tears
Like a little child’s fears…
Your soul now shaken and gone…
Yet your memory will live on…
