Is tearing at my legs,
The war has been declared.
Its ripping at my sides.
The holes never to be repaired.
Its gripping both my arms,
I'll never be set free.
It's seizing my neck,
And I wont be able to breathe.
Its taking over my mind,
And I don't know how to fight.
The battle's already lost,
And now the demon move into sight.

of every birthday wish.
There was a pony,a seahorse,an gnu
a doll,paddle ball and a hot air balloon.
But when she started to sing,
her friends and her family.
She said whoa oh oh oh.
How happy can one girl be??
How happy can one girl be??
Heidi is a gift.
And we've seen the eleven years of devaintness she comes in.

Lenore, By Edgar Allen PoeAh,broken is the golden bowl!!The spirit flown forever!!Lenore, By Edgar Allen Poe2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Let the bell toll!!-A saintly soul floats on the the Stygian river;
And Guy de Vere, hast thou no tear??-Weep now or nevermore!!
See!On yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love Lenore!!
Come!!-Let the burial right be read,let the funeral song be sung!!-
An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young!!-
A dirge for her in the doubly dead in that the died so young.
"Wretches! Ye loved her for her wealth and hated her for her pride!!
And when she fell in feeble health,ye blessed her,that she died!!
How shall the ritual then,be read??-The requiem how be sung??
By you- by yours,the evil eye,by yours, the slanderous tongue
That did to death do that died,and died so young.??"
Peccavimus;but but rave no thus!!And let a Sabbath song,
Go up to God so solemnly the dead may feel no wrong.
The sweet Lenore hath "gone before," with hope that flew beside.
Leaving the wild for that dear child that should have been they bride.

FireworksFireworks2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We were like fireworks, only a show.
We shot up so fast, down was the only other place to go.
We came down and crashed, into too many pieces to pick up.
In the end all I could think of was how much shit I was sick of.
But our love was beautiful, and so were you.
In anger I said some things, but none of them were true.
You were my lover, but also my best friend.
And maybe later on in life we'll meet up again.
For now, I wish you the best.
I wish you luck in romance, and plenty of success.
I hope you grow up to be the man I know you can be.
The only thing I ask, is please don't forget about me.
I hope you remember me with a smile on my face.
In my heart you will always have a place.
Grow old, live a good life!
I hope you have plenty of kids, and a beautiful wife.
Wounds heal, and sometimes it'll still hurt.
Our love was beautiful, like fireworks.

What do you see in me?
I can't comprehend.
My face, personality, body..
Or so I have been led to believe.
The words flow back to me,
I bite my lip,
And push them away,
Remembering your compliments.
The words you whisper softly in my ear,
Again and again.
Could they really be the truth?
If they weren't,
Why bother saying it?
What you say, so precious,
So delightful to hear,
Because it's the truth,
In your eyes,
I am beautiful.

Do you think about the past?
Do you want this minute to be your last?
Do you ever feel your feelings are to strong?
Or feel like everything you do is wrong?
Now and then
Do you just want to fly away?
Sleep away the day?
Do you cry yourself to sleep?
And when you see the one you love, do you weep?
Now and then
Do you feel alone and cold?
Try to impress, but end up to bold?
Do you shout and scream?
Does everything end up as it seems?
Here and now
Are you angry with yourself?
Afraid to talk or get help?
Do you think your the only one?
Do you wish your life was done?
Dont worry, Ive felt this way too
And there are millions like me and like you

cover my arms,
from the war with my heart,
the battle i fight,
every single day,
the war against myself,
my emotions and my heart,
battle over whats right,
my heart sais to stop,
my emotions say go deeper,
until ive stained my wrists red,
until the skin is raw,
and flesh is torn,
my mind going black,
my weary body limp,
my mind worn,
from the battle,
but my heart continues to fight,
it wont give up,
it screams and yells,
trying to get me to stop,
it persuades me and yells over my minds lies,
that it tells me with its silver tounge,
i put down the knife,
before my mind drowns out my heart,
run to my room,
lock the door,
the suicidal thoughts are no more,
im done forever,
i think im fixed,
my heart won the battle,
now all i have as a reminder,
there was even a war,
is my battle scars
AdieuI walked into your bedroomAdieu2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
longing to see your face
But instead of seeing you
there was a body in your place
your eyes had faded from that beautiful color I once knew
I shook your shoulders
trying to wake you
But there was nothing I could do
A tear fell from my cheek and seeped onto your lips
I knelt down and gave you one last heartfelt kiss
As I got up from your side
and turned around to leave
I turned around once more
hopeing my eyes were being decieved.
It had only been one minute
but I already missed your embrace
so I layed down beside you
and waited for the memory to be erased
If you could die right at that moment
then so could I to
because I cannot live in this world without you.

What is love?
Is it a feeling?
or just a word?
or just a "thing" that happens to all
It can't be spelled
or even explained
I can't tell you what love is
or what exactly really means
I just can tell you what it is to me
It's the way you smile
how i feel when i hear your name
"us" when we are together
the singing in the rain
The excitement of seeing you
the happines i get when you say i love you
the way you look at me
the way you make me feel
It's sweet is bitter
it makes you smile and burst to tears
So it doesn't matter in wich language it is
I love you
Ich liebe dich
Is something that everybody should feel

(A poem about finding comfort away from the world)
I've been going so many places in this scary, unsafe world, and I want a place where my soul can relax. I'm riding in the backseat, looking at hotel lights, wishing you, an absolute goddess, was there with me - huddled up to stay warm.
People think hotels and women only associate with sex; I don't associate it with the two of those at all. Instead, I think of a safe place where I can feel comfort in a world where I am guilty by accident and held accountable, even though I'm not grown up on the inside.
I'm just a youngster who wants nothing more than to do pretty much nothing - that is, except for keeping you happy.
Every bed I sleep in is a place where I pray that you are feeling euphoria and prosperity just before I doze off.
I almost feel that humankind should relax instead of work. At the end of the day, I imagine someone like you next to me. I wish I was a miracle worker so I could ke

"YOUR BEAUTIFUL CREDENTIALS"
(A poem inspired by actresses I adore)
The following is dedicated to you, the prestigious princess I've been dying to meet. Emphasis on "dying" because I don't want to live if I can't have one moment with you.
YOU are a young woman of talent, beauty and so many other things that make my mind spin in circles like a really fun ride at a theme park.
I am just another nobody on the outside looking in, caught in this traffic jam on my way to my dreams which will never come true.
YOU embody desire, passion, ambition, wisdom and yearning.
I am just an ugly, half-dead product of mediocrity.
YOU have built yourself a home made of acquisitions and skills that stir up my mind.
I only live in a cold tower of failures in which I stay next to a fireplace built out of unrealistic daydreams about being with you and impressing you.
YOU set my heart and soul on fire - and I mean "fire" as in passion.
I just make women see red because I'm real

(NOTE: This was inspired by a recent TV episode in which I saw a beautiful actress depicting her character after a car wreck; I've also fantasized about taking care of an ill or injured sweetheart since I was really young.)
"Beauty In Distress"
Dear Object of Desire:
You may not know who I am, but I know who you are and you give me a reason to see beauty in this world. You have no idea what great things I want to do for you. I feel confident that if you met me and got to know me, I could entertain you.
I don't know if I would make a great boyfriend, but I daydream about when you're sick or even injured. If you had scars and bruises all over your skin, I would still think you are an absolutely beautiful girl. In fact, if you were covered in bruises, I would go out of my way to bring you flowers and if you love me as much as I'm hoping, I would kiss every single bruise and scratch on your skin. It's always been a burning desire of mine to take car
The Crooked TreeToday I saw a crooked tree,The Crooked Tree3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And somehow in I saw so much beauty..
It's angle so precise.
Like it was just made to be outstanding.
Its curve was so elegant,
It made me feel happy for a moment.
It really stood out,
Kind of like me.
Because I'm sure no one else would see its beauty.
Those evergreens leaves blowing in the wind,
So bright and noticeable.
Will anyone see that crooked tree like me?

Your holding chains around my heart...
Holding me from falling off this cliff...
I'm bleeding out from every point and part...
I just can't believe that you lifted me so far...
So now it is my turn to do my duty...
When your down and can not hold on...
I'll grab on and let these chain hold us from falling...
And we can cry and let out our emotions as the sun comes up...
As blood drops down the cliff I will kiss the one I love...
Slowly chains my contrict me...
But I don't care...
Pain is taking its toll on my body but I do not care...
Your all I care and love...
If I lose somethings in my life...
It will not matter to me as long as I have you...
Chains are starting to curl around other parts...
Links start to break from pressure...
I can barely move anymore...
But I do not need to with this warmth...
The warmth for my love cuddling me close when I'm low on blood...
I will help you back up onto your feet...
I will take care of everything for you...

You care for me,
Asked if you could marry me.
Promised to always bare with me,
No love for you,
I run from you.
Put no one more above than you.
Now I'm going to let you cry for me,
Never did you try for me.
Swore that you would die for me,
But you lied to me,
You're trying me.
Gave away my love for free.
You were never even enough for me.
There will be a day you see,
You'll never find anyone better than me.
Drink Until...Drink until she's pretty,Drink Until...3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Drink until her old self is dead,
Are those the thoughts that run through your head?
Do you really want me pretty and dead?
Or do you wish for an angel instead?
Am I the demon that you dread?
Drink until she's lovely,
Drink until you can no longer see,
Do you really have to drink to love me?
Do you really want me to disappear for who I am and will be?
Or simply to be rid of me and to be free?
Drink until she's invisible,
Drink until she's gone from you mind,
When have I ever been so unkind
For you to wish you were blind
So you would not have to see what you left behind?
Well just so you're aware,
I'd like you to know that I just don't care.
That you better prepare
For the fact that you're in for a scare.
That I am no angel, but your worst nightmare
And I am going nowhere.
