I'm sorry......I broke your window
when reality came crashing through.
I got sick of waiting for the weather,
although I'd take your rain cloud any day.
Like water breaking through a dam
my words flowed forward.
Desperately trying to reach you
they lost their meaning along the way.
I kept my emotions bottled up too long
and they lost their flavor.
It was love that I wanted to taste with you.
Now I scrape it from my bleeding tongue.
Maybe it was just infatuation
rather than devotion.
But regardless of what is most believed,
I was tired of being pushed away.
More than anything right now
...I met you.

I love you.She was the type of girl who knew by heart the definition of each and every sentiment. Yet the words spelled and sprawled across the pages remained simply that--words, seemingly outside her grasp forever. And yet she prolonged the ritual of carving definitions, word-for-word, into the wall that closed off her mind. But it was not that she could not feel or that she would not feel. It was simply that she harbored deep inside a passion that no words in existence could ever describe. But I now know the word she so desperately searched for; it was "love". To the unknown entity that inspired her and drove her forward, the only words necessary to convey were these: "I love you."I love you.5 years ago in Emotional More Like This

But I don't see the point in wasting my breath...
You're never going to forgive me
why would you ever want to?
I know you're hurt...
But why do you think I did that in the first place?
I'm sorry I broke my promise to you...
But I'm only human...
I'm going to make mistakes
are you willing to stay around despite that?
Everything is nothing now a days...
There's no meaning to this
You yell at me...
Tell me I have friends who care
People who love me to death
I know this doesn't help my case much
But I really don't care anymore...
does that makes me a bad person?
You think I like this?
That I like being hallow?
That I like being in so much pain?
That I like being misunderstood?
I hate it....though I know that's not a good excuse

But the past is the past and I cant change what I've done

knowing I will see you again

On the bank of the river
our spirits are joined and free

But you don't.
You see me smile and think everything's fine.
But that's only the mask I show you on the outside...
Inside I'm dying.
Lying awake and crying.
I feel as if I'm falling.
Falling from the light.
This pain in my heart is heavy.
Its suffocating me.
Crushing my dreams.
You stand watching still seeing my smile.
I'm hiding behind this mask I made.
To keep you out and my feelings in.
Because I know if you knew my secret.
You'd expose me.
I'm not that sweet little girl you once knew.
I'm really a little devil.
I'm not a saint.
My hands are stained in blood.
I'm cradling a heart.
It once belonged to you.
But I've grown tired of your face.
I hold a knife up to my skin.
Cutting deep groves to relieve me of this thought
Carving your name.
The name I once loved so much.
Now you're a memory to me.
I'm still hiding behind this smile.
Behind this mask.
This mask I've fooled the world with.

the rocking decks of my heart-shaped galleon
tossing in the tides of my chaotic inspiration
Love me because I am a broken artist
always searching for the perfect brush
and though my search leads me astray
love me because I will always return to you.
Love me because I will paint your poetry face
and sing your likeness on a portrait canvas
your poetry likeness will paint my mind
I am willful, wild, and coarse
courting chaos and madness,
crude, impulsive, as indecisive as the ocean.
Love me because I am a chaotic mariner.
Love me because I am not lost, only wandering

the stately muses; this ship returns
to harbor with stories of mystical lands
my poetry takes me on a spirit quest
and I carry you in my pocket like
a lucky cricket, your courage fills me
with the strength of an army.

You've been through a lot in the time that you've lived. You will go through a lot more. Just remember that the greatest gift you have is the ability to adapt. To find a way to cope and to figure out how to deal with things. I know it might seem daunting but I promise you that the rewards are worth it. I just wish that I could spare us both some of the heartache. At the same time those very pains are what make me who I am today. So I will not warn you away from them. Keep to your writing and poetry it will get you through the toughest times. You really should learn to rely on others. It's not as bad as you think. Your heart might feel a little let down sometimes but if you keep trying you'll learn to discern who is and isn't good for you. Unfortunately, these things have to be learned through experience. I can tell you that you will find some days tougher then others and the pains you will experience

I hear you cry out silently
A bullet through my mind.
There's no way to comfort you

I feel I must set you free.
Things will never go back...
To the way they were before...
Because everything is different now,
And we have to let each other go...
So, I told you I no longer wanted to be your friend...
But I knew, deep down, it was a lie...
And as I turned and walked away from you...
Tears fell as I whispered, "Good-bye..."
