What is it really?An apple can't fall too close to the tree.
Love is a hurricane.
A spoonful of sugar makes your symptoms worse.
Laughter could be a cure.
Actions really do scream louder than words.
You don't get all of what you see,
and if you can't feel it, perhaps it does exist.
Building up walls keep people from climbing over.
Just because you need them doesn't give you an open door.
No one will chase after you even if you run away.
Equal and opposite is never the reaction.
Forgivness is easily forgotten.
in love with a dream...I'm in love with a dream,in love with a dream...5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's sad but it's true,
Sadly it seems,
I'm in love with you,
When I dream you're with me,
And we're both happy together,
But I wake and then hear,
The very words I fear,
It's not true,
I'm not with you,
And you're with her,
And I want to cry,
But I cant help who I love,
Even if it makes me want to die,
So I'll stay here,
Happy I'll seem,
But really I'm far away,
In love with my dream of you...

It is a hug,
Your hopes it could lift,
While spreading some love,
I give you it to say;
'I'm right here for you and always will be.'
I hope that it rids you of fear,
Stops any pain,
And stills your tears,
I think that your awesome,
A real true friend,
And i hope that as one,
You'll be around till the end...

love feels so far away.
That blade leads you astray.
Your life is not unplanned.
Don't refrain from tears.
Have faith; you're not alone.
Scars and lies...heart turning to stone.
Do not give into fear.
You said it's art...
the result of a mistake,
and happiness is fake.
This breaks my heart.

Trying to find the light,
Some people say we're heartless,
And maybe they're right,
Run through the forest,
Wolves howl into the night,
The leaves here are dense,
And the moon is lost from sight,
Forget the things of the past,
While we are filled with fright,
We cant escape the madness,
Try as we might...

You're in every book I read,
I think of you always,
My heart wants to be freed,
Every song reminds me of you,
The wind whispers your name,
I see you everywhere,
And love is to blame,
Even in my nightmares,
I dont mind them cause you're there,
When I see you in the street,
I cant help but stare,
I hope you realise how i feel,
It pains me to be far from you,
I miss you,
Even if I saw you at school,
Only minutes before,
I cant help but want to see you some more,
Do you miss me when I'm gone?,
I love you... Do you love me...?
you dont know meDont pretend you know,you dont know me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How I feel inside,
Dont pretend to know,
What goes on in my mind,
You dont know who I am,
You dont even try,
You dont know who I am,
Or how much I cry,
How easy it would be,
To escape this life,
To set myself free,
I could always use a knife,
Or a pill or some fire,
To bring down this house,
A rope or a Bath,
Would make me quiet as a mouse,
So dont say that you know,
What goes on in my head,
The monsters dont show,
Just hide under my bed,
You drive me away,
With all the things that you do,
All the things that you say,
Just push me further from you,
Further and further,
Down this black hole,
Than live like this I'd rather,
Loose my stupid soul,
So dont pretend to know,
What makes me me,
When you dont even know,
My favourite movie...
Love in ResponseWhen I say I love you,Love in Response4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I say it because...
you make each breath I take
You make me feel as if I'm living for a purpose,
not just searching for an answer I can't find.
You cast away the demons of my past
with every tight-knit hug
and every gentle kiss.
I say it
because you don't realize you mean the world to me,
and because I can't hope to sum it up
in just five lines of words across a computer screen.
When I say I love you,
I'm hoping you can look beyond the phantoms in my eyes
and into the heart of every moment spent with you.
I say it
because it's as close to honest as I can get sometimes,
and I don't want to push you away...
Dear Self I Hate You More ThanDear Self,Dear Self I Hate You More Than5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I realize today that I hate you more today than I did yesterday.
I learned today the extent of how much you can't do anything right and how incompetent you are.
I feel you should know I hope you die.
It's taking all the restraint in the world not to drown you in the bath tub.
Just the fact that I know you're happy even for a second makes me sick.
I also know that the happiness you're feeling is my fault. I'll fix that.
Get a grip.
No one cares.
Are you seriously disappointed? What did you expect? Have you ever MET me?
Please... just leave me alone,
I can't take this anymore.
You've turned into something I hate.
I've turned into you and you've turned into me.
It's uncalled for and disgusting.
What do you want from me?
I think I hate you... as much as I hate me.
And that's a lot.

Rocks thrown into the ocean;
Hard and fast
Reaching bottom with a 'splash'.
st--ellun--arI'm not stellar. I don't flare like the sun when the clouds break apart, cotton smoke-signals shadowing the haunted souls below as I pass them by. In fact, I'm more likely to cover the beams than let them trespass on my kindness; I've always handled the night better, but I can't find it in me to boot the moon from the sky. And if you were wondering, I have a nasty love-affair with the stars, but I don't claim to wake up with their wishes coated like dust upon my hair or their twinkles blinding my eyes like the chaos of summertime sparklers. I might be unique (I often wear the wrong smiles or hear misspelled words in people's speeches), but I'll never claim to be an alien (unfortunately, the only thing wrong with me is the glitter in my blood and the scent of oranges beneath my fingerprints). And no, it's not the light reflected on my pupils that makes the world so wet. It's just my tears.st--ellun--ar4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dance into MadnessEvery moment we are alive,Dance into Madness5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Has in it the seeds of our own demise
We seek to bury who we are,
And when we are discovered we act surprised
We blame others for our passions,
Passions which we seek to deny,
And when confronted with the truth,
We use any excuse as an alibi
Life is a painted tapestry,
Of pictures, emotions, and words
Sadly there are so many,
Who use all of them as a scourge
We dance into madness,
With every dark design and dark deed
So many of us simply do not care,
About all those we make bleed
We waste our time and lives,
So caught up in what we perceive,
When suddenly without warning,
We are no longer believed
Thankfully we lose with time,
The ease with which we are deceived,
It is not something to be lamented,
It is not something over which to grieve
We dance with madness,
Each and every day,
And it is so very hard,
To dance out of it's reach again
Most of us both live and learn,
And every moment grow stronger still
Some of us, sadly, only burn,
And we always will

I am seeking the land beneath the concrete,
I want to see the sky beyond the smog,
And the stars beyond the phosphorous glow of humanity.
The Earth is a savage garden,
The world humans create above is a ravaging force,
Committed to the eradication of our foundation.

i signed the form today, the dark clouds beyond your window--swollen with rain, bruising the sky--echoing the mood trapped behind closed doors. at six, i took your bandaged hand--careful, dear, you told me six months ago. don't bump the i.v.--and whispered goodbye with my tears. i whispered my secrets before you let yourself go.
do you remember growing up? we were twenty-four, fresh out of college, and you were beautiful. your crimped-up, decked-out, rust-red-tinted hair smelled of black licorice markers and cups of chai tea. i buried myself in its webs that night. begged you to take me away.
and you did, love. the sway of your hips kissing mine stopped the world, and for ten seconds, i forgot what you told me. for a moment, i forgot you were already moving on.
your eyes were yellow, feverish, the frailty of your failing organs much too

I am merely dreaming
under some magnetic tree
in a cosmic grove
beside the astral stream
and when I awaken
and you find the shell of my dream
lamenting my death
I will be waking
to my natural state
of ethereal being.
