Waves that crash against
the rocks that lie in the shore
coming and going.
Did you know my tears
still flow as the river does
searching the ocean?
Floating through the water
as dreams do during the night
leaving no traces.
If the stars do shine
with the light of million years...
My dreams in them live.

I open my eyes and see the forest scene greet me
Leaves guide me to the place where we'd always meet
As I follow the elaves, I see you standing there in all your perfection
We walk toward each other in rythmic movement
Sparks fly when our fingertips meet
[Chorus: Mid-Steptember days oh how I miss your scene
Your orange sun makes me long for your arrival
Wanting the picture perfect evenings you bring to me
Originality only comes from you
Mid-September, will you wait for me? Do you miss me?]
Fog covers us but city lights illuminate the dark
As we lay down on the moist grass, you whisper something to me I haven't heard before
Each breath you take in, sounds like a simple melody
When we are together, I swear, the world stops time just for us
[Chorus, during chorus soft mumbles are in the background.]
Mid-September will you wait for me? x3
Mid-September will you wait for us?
EMOtionA smile is just a frownEMOtion2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Turned upside down.
Just a lie we all paint on
To hide the truth we have locked inside.
We promise we are ok.
We promise nothing is wrong
So we smile and hide our pain
And sing a cheery song.
But the truth is we're dying inside.
And we don't think we can make it through another night.
And the scars that lie across our wrists.
Are there as proof of our fight.
People judge us,
Say we're sick.
But maybe if they'd look past our scars,
They'd stop acting like complete dicks.
So save you comments, and your lies.
We do not need them
For we are stronger than you think.
We have emotion and that is our strength!
Columbian studentsMummy...Johnny brought a gun to schoolColumbian students3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He told his friends that it was cool
And when he pulled the trigger back
It shot with a great crack
Mummy I was a good girl
I did what I was told
I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold
But mummy when I went to school that day, I never said goodbye
I'm sorry mummy I had to go, but mommy please don't cry
When Johnny shot the gun he hit me and another
And all because he got the gun from his older brother
Mummy please tell daddy that I love him very much
And please tell Chris, my boyfriend, that it wasn't just a crush
And tell my little sister that she is the only one now
And tell my dear sweet grandmother that I'll be waiting for her now
And tell my wonderful friends that they were always the best
Mummy I'm not the first I'm no better than the rest
Mummy tell my teachers I won't show up for class
And never to forget this and please don't let this pass
Mummy why'd it have to be me no one deserves this
Mummy warn the others, mummy I

to unbeleivable, remarkable heights
its drops you
watches as you fall to the lowest of the low
it spins you around until your dizzy
takes away every ounce of common sense that you posses
it allows you to learn how to be yourself
it lets you dream
it holds you hostage
takes you as its victim
it sets you free
shows you how to be your own person
it tortures you
snatches your heart, then makes you jump for it
it nurtures you
soothes all hurt
it pushes you
then kicks you while your down
it picks you up
then brushes you off

hurt gives us knowledge
teaches us boundaries
lies give us a taste of who people truly are
teaches us to trust no one but ourselves
heartache gives a chance to grow
it teaches us how to be strong
tears give us the oppertunity to vent
they teach us how to ask people for help
scars give us the chance to heal
they teach us to remember those we once loved

Ira couldn't stand any longer, she collapsed to her knees, she looked up into the rainy sky. Her tears mixing with the rain. The images of what she had just seen running through her mind. She looked down at the small bundle she held in her arms, two large golden eyes staring back, and she knew she had to go on. Ira stood shakily to her feet, and as she walked on the sun began to rise and the rain turned to drizzle, then stopped entirely. Ira heard the sound of a giggle, she looked down at her little brother and smiled, 'i have to make it for him, without me he has nothing.

The pool water splashed.
The outside emitted a hazy sepia color
Screaming across the waters surface.
The concave roof above encased its occupants.
They drifted arbitrarily.
Some laid across the edge of the basin
Spewing nonsense in form of words,
Seeping from the roofs of their mouths.
Oblong shadows flew momentarily
Through the wafting air
Charging themselves into unprotected faces.
The restroom door, a safe house,
A sanctuary from these interferences,
My water stained sole
Collided with the sheen surface.
A swift movement combined my digit
The parched lips meeting halfway along an irreversible barrier between two isometric life forms.
Her momentary scent clung to a slender neck,
Unable to separate itself from a predetermined fate.
An echo whispering naïve promises.
The blood leaked onto the white tarnished tiles.
A tainted stitch, affixed to a wounded source.
An impulsive kiss, unfolded beyond two futures.
Unrealistic linkage allied in its escape from me

broken memories of the summer time,
these days we live back and white,
as time goes by,
held safely in your arms,
the memories always hurt,
but it's just broken love.
In the summertime,
days go by with a kiss,
all the hours spent together,
they were hit and miss,
if you won then that's just fine,
but every time you lost,
the picture flew on by.
at the summer it was blue and gold,
the only love you said you'd ever hold,
slept soundly on the beach,
chasing after dreams,
but they were out of reach.
the lens is cracked,
light just cant get through,
and my love was only ever you,
sat quietly by the shore,
the summer came and went,
and our love no more.
all those cigarettes and alcohol,
that autumn never did go well,
star gazing from your roof,
call it what you want,
but it's still the truth.
In the summertime,
days go by with a kiss,

LiveStop thinking, just for a while.Live2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stop worrying, about what'll happen.
Don't look at the past, and don't strive for the future.
Live in the today.
Live in the now.
Dont worry about anything else except that you have a life.
You have your life.
You have to live that life.
Dance, draw, write, express yourself, cry, smile, love, live, eat, work, and play.
Why, care about anything else.
Why strive for the future when you cant even live in the present.
The world is for everyone, so make it yours.
No more regrets.
No more regrets.
No more regrets.
Live..........just enjoy it

Push me away.
You don't care.
I'd like to hear you,
but you just push me away.
Oh, but you can't.
I love you enough to see past scars.
Faded but freshly ripped wounds.
But you won't let me stitch you up.
Let me in, and let me see you.
I won't run, I promise.
I see past that,
Just don't lie to me.
just don't lie to me.

All she wanted was to hold his hand.
She just wanted to sit next to him.
Feel the warmth of his love radiate into her body.
She wanted to dance with him.
To loose herself in the music and his being.
She wanted to have his arm around her, holding her close to him.
She wanted him to defend her.
Call her his.
But, most of all, she wanted to be his.

NeighborsChildrenMustDie - SSI glanced into the rearview mirror, my eyes fixing on the two toe-headed girls staring at my car with squinty faces. I frowned, realizing at that instance that my dislike for adult residents of my neighboring houses should not reflect on how I feel about their children--as I recalled, they were actually pretty nice for a couple of brats.NeighborsChildrenMustDie - SS2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
So, as I switched my gears into drive, I raised a nonchalant hand and waved politely at them, keeping eye-contact the entire time.
My frown deepened, and the girls continued to watch me without change in either's expression.
I shrugged, figuring the sun was in their eyes or what not and repeated the gesture.
Momentarily frustrated, I decided to just give up and drive past. At the last moment, however, I slapped a gay smile across my face and flipped the girls the bird.
They didn't even blink.
A poem about rats Vince madeSquiggly ratsA poem about rats Vince made2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Some in hats
Dancing and singing
Some still flinging
Themselves around the floor
And asking the bar rat for more
You see, Blood it's a magical rat dance
All in a box of rats in my pants
And they dance and sing
Sometimes they also swing
But no more of that in something PG rated
So as I have not yet really stated
The box of rats is for you
So you'll cheer up too
And maybe for a little while
You'll beam someone a smile

The Artist's AmbitionIf I was a painter, how would I paint you?The Artist's Ambition2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Maybe a blood red to accent your personality.
Or, have you in a field of daisies to show that you would look handsome in any setting.
What if I was a photographer?
How would I capture "you" in one shot?
I'd probably have you with a calm expression to show that unseen sensitive side of you.
Could I explain how you smile if I was a poet?
Would it be possible for me to write every element of you in a haiku?
When exactly would a hunk of clay replicate you when you're mad if I was it's sculptor?
How would metal reflect your wishes?
If I was a dancer, could I illustrate you?
Could I show how you dream about bigger things as you look into the sky?
Or how you act when you're disappointed in the way it turned out?
Am I capable of putting you on paper?
Could I show everything I love?

My broken heart will never heel.
My lost voice will never be found
And I'm losing life pound by pound.
Left alone in a cold dark place
My heart beats at a slower pace.
No one has yet to hear my cries.
There is no spirit in my eyes.
Soon I will cease to be,
My life forgotten by all but me.
I fade away 'till nothings there,
Hoping that you would eventually care.

i hope you know I'm never smiling inside
i die a lil more each time
but I'll put on a charade
fake it all
tell you it's not a lie
I'll be fine
but we both know it's not true
I'm lying through my flesh
but there's not a thing you can do
or I'll except
to make this pain withdraw from my chest
it's just an eternally bleeding
but i hope i can eventually take enough drugs
so we are nothing but a memory
hazed by forgotten days of drugs and problems
anything to get rid of your face
that's carved into my heart
the best to you and your endeavors
but I'm just to weak to move on like you do
I'm not scared to admit that I'm failing
it's harder then it looks
and it stings more then you know
but you'll be okay
and I'll be okay
as i lie once more
and when i see your face I'll know

I'm not scared to be lost
and I don't want to be found.
My throat can't sing it's song
And my words are marred
as the mumbles get stronger.
When I can't color the wings
that have been drawn on my back,
I'll know my innocence's gone
and it may never come back.
What's a wish or two missing?
From a imperfect ending,
I couldn't tell you
if you asked me
when it will all be okay.

Thanks for the memories,
of smoke and food i can't eat,
thanks for making me feel worthless,
from sleeping by your side,
thanks for not caring,
about my cuts and weight,
clearly something was wrong with me,
but you didn't say a thing.
You boasted your freedom,
and how it was for me too,
but did you really think i was free,
sitting next to you?
i look at you now and feel physically ill,
what was i thinking, when i agreed to sleep with you?
you didn't make me happy,
or feel like i was pretty,
despite calling me perfect,
and saying that you loved me.
Well your chapter is over now,
and i've never been more glad,
i've put on a bit of weight,
and my smoking isn't as bad,
but i suppose one good thing,
came from being with you,
the love of my life realised,
that i wasn't meant for you,
so thank you for sending him my way,
and thank you for staying so damn ugly,
i just hope that one day,
i can forget you ever touched me,
and wipe myself clean, for the last time.
