and under this exterior,
I am just a materialised object
without a price tag,
I am a parcel with several wrappings
just being passed around and shredded,
Is there any escape from this shallow
bitter and lonely existance?
I doubt it.
Zipper on my heartGrasping your wristsZipper on my heart5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To hide the veins
Sore from zippering
Up your heart
He says it's over.
But fears keep
Like tree branches
At your hair.
Tears keep erasing
The words on your heart
The ones he wrote.
Staining your love for him
Oh but the scars that
He carved on your heart
Like a tree trunk
Can never be erased.
Every rose has thorns.
His are plentiful.
Razorblade RomanceI'll be your bullet,Razorblade Romance5 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
If you be my gun,
If you pull the trigger,
Then my deed will be done.
'Cause you're my razorblade romance,
Your smile a deadly sin,
I want so badly,
But you won't let me in.
I'll be your danger,
if you be my sign,
I'd hold you forever,
If I thought you'd not mind.
'Cause you're my razorblade romance,
I'm lost in your eyes,
I need you so badly,
My days never die.
you hurt meyou hurt me5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
why are you unhappy
why do you shed those tears of pain
hot tears that run down my arm
as i hold you
while you cry...
those tears that eat through to my heart
each one melting away a small portion
leaving a wound that stings
a wound that feels as if it will burn
burn for eternity
why must you be so sad
i try to comfort you,
but you wont let me...
you won't tell me what is wrong
why must you cry
it husts to know that i can't stop you
all i can do is hold you
and listen to you choke on tears
as i rock you in my arms
why must you cut
a deep crimson river flowing from your wrist
as the smooth blade penatrates your skin
i move to lick the small beeds of blood
you tell me no
to let it bleed
why must you believe in the need to hurt yourself
to feel all the pain
what makes you think you desurve this
is it because you hurt someone?
all i can do is watch-
as you hurt yourself...
you won't let me do anything
but don't you know?
in all of this

When I make a wish
For things to get better.
But they won't.
Hoping the rain
On the window will
Hide my fears.
Listening to music
Blaring in my ears
About some old boy
Who I know I've lost
But still want.
Nothing's wrong with me.
Just the life I'm living.

Sleepwalking and Teddy BearsHalf asleep, you tossed and turned. Finally settling down on your back with your face pointed at the window you were widely awaken to feel someone holding you. Arms around you and everything. Your (EC) orbs were wide and a blush formed on your cheeks. Looking over to see who this mystery person was, you came face to face with a sleeping Levi. Your blush darkened trying to pry him off but he only tightened his grip. You sighed and started to shake him awake. It's not that you didn't like the fact Levi was in your bed sleeping next to you, it was the fact that he was your superior and he was in your bed cuddling you like a teddy bear! The thought made you giggle a little. "C-corporal" you whispered as you shook him. He didn't move. "Corporal.." you said a little bit louder. 'Man hes a heavy sleeper' you thought. You decided to take the risk of shaking him violently and hoped for the best that he wouldn't kill you. He mummbled something then squeezed your side.

How people lock themselves up,
In their own little world.
We lie to ourselves,
Say that everything's alright,
We wear the mask,
And act the part,
And say it's all part of the show.
We live in boxes,
See in darkness,
And speak in lies.
I't's our world
That we live in,
Why should it change?

she'd smudge black and blue
beneath her skin
and tell herself us it didn't hurt
[even when it did.]
there's this girl i know, she's beautiful.
she likes to flutter her eyelashes like the wings of butterflies
and pump golden sunshine from her heart
[the bones leaves go crunch with every step.]
there's this girl i know, she's beautiful.
her shoulders are strong like mountains but she's not unmovable;
her ribs are longer than they should be
and there's something strangely poetic about that
[but she's a master of hide-and-seek.]
there's this girl i know, she's beautiful.
her smiles and the laughter hits ceiling tops.
she's struggled for what she's now got
and she deserves every second he gives her.
[she just needs wants to be happy.]
these girls i know, i don't deserve.
they're beautiful and nothing can will ever change that.

Two more days had slipped through your fingers and by God did it feel like a lot longer. You thought being in one of humanity’s last standing civilisations would be a dream come true, but all you were stuck with was sitting in a painfully boring room and constantly examined on shit that didn’t matter. It felt an awful lot like school, you decided.
The morning had been going the way all your other mornings as of late had been. You’d be lying in bed, some person in a lab coat would serve you damn near inedible muck that they claimed to be “breakfast”, to which you’d reluctantly eat it then go back to lying down.
You heard the door to your room— well, prison cell – open and expressed genuine shock when your eyes met with the slim, emotionless ones of Levi. You perked up and grinned at him, “Oh, thank God. Someone I can actually talk to!”
The faintest of smirks threatened to surface but was quickly forced back down from the Corpor

Snow fell softly on the sidewalk, making a think layer of white. (Name) sighed. Winter always made her nostalgic for an unknow reason.
She buried her face in her warm (f/c) scarf and shook the flakes off her hair. She kept walking across the pavement, her brown leather boots hitting the ground with muffled 'thud's.
(Name) was on her way to her favorite café, the one on the corner. It was cozy there, with all those homey lights and the air that always smelled of bread and sugar. She wanted to relax and lose herself in her journal. Her therapist said writing would be good for her.
She hoped it would.
Name had always liked watching couples-from a clever distance, of course- to forget her own loneliness. She barely knew what love was, let alone had experimented it.
Hell, she didn't even know who she herself was. But that didn't matter at the moment, her identity was something to be disscused some other time. Her feet were startin

Freedom so sweet but untouchable.
Untouchable like the moon in the sky

You continued after the valiant hero, much to your wounded pride, and walked beside him. He sent a brief glance in your direction, and his expression shifted into one you could only assume was vague smugness. “What’s wrong? Did you realise zombies make shitty hosts?” he remarked. His tone was so blatantly apathetic but undoubtedly riddled with sarcasm and dry humour. It almost made you want to punch him.
“Nah, I just thought you’d need an escort.”
“You’re really not my type.”
You furrowed your brows and mentally scolded yourself for blindly walking into that one. Why were escorts a type of prostitute? Why couldn’t they just be escorts?! This totally ruined your cool demeanour!
Silence fell over the two of you as you continued down the path. You didn’t know what to say, and he didn’t seem like the talkative type, so it didn’t look like there was going to be much conversation. You pushed a sigh from your lungs

Bodies wound tightly.
That's what we were up to yesterday.
You were awfully gorgeous with that new hairdo of yours.
You thought I'd think it was horrendous,
But when I saw you;
My heart lit up like a thousand fireflies inhabited it's every crevice.
I even told you that you were my everything.
In reply, you smiled and told me likewise.
It made my chest swell with absolute happiness.
I recall when you asked me to promise you something;
Just one thing, you said.
Promise me you'll never leave me. I love you too much to lose you.
That made my head glow with wonder; why would I ever leave you?
But, I couldn't let you worry, so I reassured you by whispering:
I would never leave you. Ever. I couldn't think straight if I lost you.
You smiled and murmured in a most placid voice:
I love you.
I laughed in an easy way because I didn't know what else to do; I was just so happy.
I held your hands, looked into your eyes, and replied by saying:
I love you, too.

Is it how you look?
How you feel?
How you act?
Is it even real?
Why do we strive to be 'perfect'?
If 'perfect' is only fake.
Why do people only pay attention to,
Those who are closest to being 'perfect'?
What happens to the rest of us;
Who aren't perfect?
Who have pimples?
Who are overweight?
Who are clumsy?
Who have 'problems'?
Who can't control our emotions?
Who can't pretend all the time?
Do we just drift away?
Slowly dying in a sea of worthlessness?
Or do we get our chance too?
Who's to say?
Maybe no one is 'perfect'.
