Because I know my lips
Aren't the only ones
You've placed yours on.
Your touch feels infected
Because you enjoyed her skin
More than my own.
Your words sound corrupted
Because you whispered the same line
Over and over in her ear while you
Kissed the skin you chose over mine.

I miss you, please come back. Without you I feel lost, shallow, confused, lonely and empty. Creativity is suffering, it's locked inside and just can't seem to get unstuck. We both want you here. You're my best friend, my enemy, my psychiatrist, my love, my passion, my muse. Everything about me yearns for your company once again. My guitar, my pen, my camera. My heart, my soul, my mind; we are all deprived within your absence.
I've noticed you lingering in my dreams, but when I wake up, you're gone, like a ghost, nothing more than a shadow that dances on my wall and disappears. Memories of you are here still, stuck in crevices of my mind taunting and tormenting me. I wish you'd come back and stay. I don't know why you left, maybe it was just too much, but I swear, things will change. I need you.
You keep me wh
HeartacheI miss youHeartache3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Even though I've never had you
I almost did; you were so close within reach
Just a couple of foot steps away
While we slept and I dreamed
And you probably never dreamed of me
But we lay only a few feet away
And I could feel you in my heart
As I felt you in my dreams
And in my every thought
During those nights we both couldn't sleep
Except I couldn't stay up and talk to you
Because you don't like to talk to me
It's been a year since I've cried over you
Time and distance hasn't changed anything
It's only proven that I love you
I love you
And that will never change
I'm sorry if I bother you
You won't tell me why, so there's nothing I can do
But go away
So you don't have to see my face
I never pined after you
I only let you be
Because I thought you would come to me
And you should know
That I don't love you because you make me happy
Because you do not make me happy
No one has ever caused me so much pain
As you have
Yeah, you've made me smile, you've made me giggle
I See You In The StarsI look up at the stars at nightI See You In The Stars3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and wonder where you've been
the stars, they shine and sprinkle light
I feel it deep within
the stars stare back at me
and I feel your love anew
even though you're not by my side
I feel the kiss you blew
the stars burn a tender fire
I wish you were beside me
so I close my eyes to the twinkling lights
and let my heart look and see
my heart beats softly and quietly
it allows me time to think
your frame comes into view
and beneath me the ground begins to sink
I float up off the ground
my heart lifts me to the sky
I'm surrounded by the stars and moon
and your eyes bring a sweet sigh
next are your lips
which kiss me far to mars
I wake up on the ground again
seeing you in the stars.
ForeverThey're smudges of prints against my skin.Forever4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Signs that you've been here.
At this place, at that place.
My room is dark,
But I feel a linger.
In my room you're still here.
You left marks across my body.
Maybe they're red, maybe there blue.
Even fair as my skin.
But as I brush with my hand I feel it caressed.
The pressure you pushed on me.
Why can I still feel it?
You aren't even here,
And I can feel you.
'Cause no matter how far you've gone,
These scars are forever to stay.

LoverHe couldn't care less about her adoration for philosophy;Lover4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the way the word 'existentialism' rolled off her tongue
and gave her nostalgia, how solipsism infuriated her,
the way she became fascinated with hail that broke glass.
In fact, he despised how she remembered every bone
in the human body and how she compared them
to other things: "The pelvic girdle is just misshapen wings
and the carpals are like tiny stones you find on beaches."
What he loved was the way her eyes stole his essence,
how his skin would be gnawed on by shivers and tingling,
how she'd masticate potassium and roll her tongue when
she ingested vitamin c.
Quite frankly, she gave him a hard-on.

Before the words I want to say have gone.
Muffle my screams and fight my tears,
My cries are too much for your delicate ears.
Please tell my why I am so
To tell you what you need to know,
What I am yearning to say.
Take my thoughts and hide them away,
So they cannot escape, at least not today.
I silence my voice, it can shout in my head,
But the words will never come out,
They'll stay with me until I am dead.
Lost in HerselfDeepLost in Herself4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is what they call her
Like the night sky,
Her stars are scattered all over the place
Bits and pieces of herself
Lost among old memories and broken smiles
Vast expanses of nothingness
Filled with forgotten promises
And buried amidst herself.
Is what they call her
Like running a race,
But lost without a map
Seeking the beginning and end
The finish line lost like her lucidity
But unable to retrace her path
Wandering old toys
And obliterated words
Stuck in a permanent limbo
Is what they call her
Digging deeper and deeper
Trying to find herself
Until there's nothing left to dig up
Except shattered bits of her sanity
And her crumpled life
Recorded on pieces of paper
Creased and worn
Is what they call her
Strange EyesInsane as the shadows,Strange Eyes3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Unhinged is her soul,
Awaiting the verdict,
She's lost to madness,
Bleeding the sins
Her mind wont condone.
Allowing the madness
To dictate her way.
So injured she struggled,
She defied her demise,
An unexpected prize.
This prize was simple;
A boy with strange eyes,
Who ignited her valor
And saw through the lies.
This boy was different,
He used her real name,
She was no longer known
As the girl who's insane.
There are nights...There are nights when the skyThere are nights...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
unstitches its seams and stutters stars
into the startled canons of our eyes.
These are the nights when
I try not to think of you
or the way your voice breaks through me
like a tide only satisfied with drowning,
the way your every how becomes
an inexplicable why inside me
or how I'm tethered to you
like a prayer seeking penance
from the stars.
you are a long avenue in me
through which a whisper lingers
and, though these are the nights
when I try to cure myself
of this need to need you,
they are still the nights I leave the doors
unlatched like my lips, waiting
for you to come home.
Bizarre AffairsThe taste of his lips,Bizarre Affairs3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The touch of his skin,
He makes her believe,
He rids her of sin.
She's writhing, panting
Unable to speak.
The difference, tangible
She's known him a week.
His laugh, like sunshine
On cold winter days,
Igniting her life,
Embracing the blaze.
Attentive and loving;
His beauty astounding
His heart made of gold.
His voice is like honey,
The phone calls, sweet.
Life is vivacious;
She feels incomplete.
Clouds fill her head
And thoughts are obscure,
His words, reassuring
Their feelings are pure.
The tears betray her
Escaping their cell,
She's wearing his shirt
Inhaling the smell.
She longs for his touch,
The eyes that explore,
They watch intently,
Impossible to ignore.
Their dreams are vivid,
The future's bizarre,
Together they discover
How to reach for a star.
Hung OverYou're the first conscious breath I take when I wake,Hung Over4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a hangover,
You throb in my head nonstop.
But I am hungover,
Over you whom I can't seem to let go.
You don't know how badly I want this headache to stop,
This heartache to stop.
You're a disease that has infected me straight to the core,
No matter how many times I think I've been healed,
You just keep coming back.
Bringing nothing but pain,
And absolutely nothing to gain.
Then why is it that when we're together,
You give me every reason to hang on forever?
In this dream of mines,
You're the wish I would wish for.
But in this reality called life,
You've become another wonderful person to remember.

No Longer AnonymousNo longer can I remain anonymous, just another girl checking in for her doctor's appointment.

I see the way their eyes change. I see how they look at me. The hardness of the day, painted in the lines on their face, softens, just a bit. Their eyes, normally cold and focused, now try to melt my heart with their temporary concern.
I sit in the waiting room amongst the anonymous people. There's the elderly couple across from me; the Hispanic family: three kids occupied by the mom while the dad talks loudly on the phone, his bulbous body exceeding the chair he sits on; the blonde woman with her adorable blonde-headed daughter in the white linen dress; and all the other an

To SamhainWhen in deep dark night the shadows are awakening to life,To Samhain5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When in the silver shimmering pale moon light - spiders are spinning the yarn of life,
When the howling wolves are singing to Mother Moon
and when the ditties of the elves and trolls do silently sound ...
When the Banshees are striding through the land ...
and are reaching for the poorest of souls ...
then the time of farewell has come and the blooming strength of life has melt away.
Time now has come for the dark man to approach and ... hush ... silent ...
"Hear'st thou him knocking at the door?"
To Samhain the ghosts are singing,
the melody of the bustle is tenderly fading
To Samhain in the darkest night ...
life will arise anew.
FrustrationsSlamming down your fist as hard as you canFrustrations4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It stings but you don't care
Angry, hurt and frustrated
When you try so hard, but it's never enough
A colour you can't imitate
Even though it's so clear in your mind
Still the paints are disagreeing
And your skies are not the blue you thought they'd be
A feeling that fills you up to the tips of your body
There are a million words
But they are never the right ones
And you feel overcome by verses trapped inside you
Lyrics and melodies float around you
So close you can swear you tasted them
How come it always seems that only you hear them?
And it never seems that the music reaches their hearts
In your mind you are a wisp of swirling smoke
Light and graceful like as a gazelle
Yet you are a prisoner of your own body
And it's not the first time you feel ill-deserved of those dancing shoes
You hear the beautiful voices; the sound gives yo
