Live in interesting times

Poem for a Restroom WallSitting in a bathroom stallPoem for a Restroom Wall9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A word is written on the wall
A shout of anger from outside
I sit in here and try to hide
The rapper has his ghetto beat
My rhythm is the sound of feet
He speaks of life back in the slums
I dance to very different drums
Each poet has a style his own
One may smile, another groan
Another laugh, another moan
And others are, as yet, unknown

I hear insults.
"That's so gay."
"Shut up, faggot."
I keep my mouth shut.
I don't want to be "that girl."
The arguing escalates,
The teacher ignores it.
I clench my fist,
I clench my teeth.
Don't say anything,
I tell myself.
I am angry,
Not at those people.
I am angry,
I do not stand up for myself,
I ignore it because I am scared.
I do not stand up for myself,
I am too worried about my image.
I do not stand up for myself,
But those who are rude, do.
They stand up for themselves,
They are the ones speaking.
I am the one in silence,
a warm embraceAs you click away at the computer, you feel warm, soft hands reach around you. They gently embrace you as you feel a warmth move from the back of your neck to one side. It turns into a trail of warm, small kisses that make their way from your neck to the tip of your ear. The kiss turns to a soft nibble on your earlobe, as the embrace around you gently releases and, warm soft hands roam around gently massaging your chest, making their way to their respective shoulders. The gentle nibbles on your ear make slowly, and, softly their way back down one side of your neck.a warm embrace4 years ago in Settings More Like This
The warm and gentle hands start to massage your shoulders starting from your neck and work their way back out, trailing down your back, massaging and lightly scratching their path. The nibbles on your neck make their way around to the back of your neck, ending at the center, where they give a gentle kiss, and gently blow a warm breath to send a warm, tingly sensation down your spin
Kiss Me.I think about kissing you all the time. When I'm in class, when I'm eating dinner, and when I'm lying in bed, trying to sleep. I can't help it. Just the thought of that contact, of doing something that shows that we are, without a doubt, together, it's entrancing.Kiss Me.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I want to feel your lips on mine. Sometimes when I see you, I get this urge to push you up against the wall and kiss you until we can't breathe, not caring who saw. I want to steal those kisses from you. And then I want you to push me against the wall, and control me. Pin my hands together behind me, hold me still and ravage my mouth. I'm yours, and I want you to take advantage of that. I want you to suck on my neck, bite me, leave hickeys and bruises on the skin.
My thoughts almost never get any dirtier. It's just kissing, just you pressed against me and your lips on mine. But it's more than enough.
For a FriendWhen life makes you feel really down,For a Friend12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And there's no one to tell you it's alright,
You can't help feeling you're about to drown,
Or being enveloped by endless night.
I'll be there to help you out,
Or just to make you smile,
I'll show you what friendship is all about,
And help you run the extra mile.
I know how much pain has come to you,
And I know that it's hard to move on,
But I know that you'll make it through,
And then that pain will soon be gone.
For a friend I'll always be there,
And I'll always do my very best,
I'll be the one who'll always care,
Even if they're extremely depressed.
Your friendship means the world to me,
Even when you're sad,
Because you are undoubtfully,
One of the best friends that I've had.
So when you're feeling lost,
Or when things become unclear,
My friendship has no cost,
And for you I'll always be here.

I'm not suppose to want you baby. Want your kiss your touch your every smile and laugh and tear. I'm not suppose to want to hold you in my arms and keep you warm as we stare at the stars and whisper dreams we didn't even know we had. I'm not suppose to want to fight every bastard that does you harm even the ones in you own mind, I'm not supposed to want to chase all your demons away.
I'm not suppose to let you run your fingers through my tangled hair. And smile at me with those gorgeous gorgeous eyes. Why do you make me feel so incredibly in love?
She's my little tomboy, half-suicidal, angst ridden bisexual and I wish I could be her savior. Because I love her more than she will ever know.
I love you baby girl. Absolutely everything about you, even the parts you hate....they make you the most beautiful. I love the way you sing while we drive with
Just becauseHave you ever even felt so emptyJust because10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So lack of everything
So empty of creativity
Such a cause for me to write like such
When I stare up at the stars and wonder why they are there
Shining so bright
All spread out upon gods canvas
A sound of the night
A whisper of your voice
A reccolection of your face is all I have
But I am aware that everything will be fine
When all I can do is smile at the creation
The green grass I lay upon
The feelings all inside of me
and the way that I succumb to them
Nothing but a thought of you in my head
I close my eyes and wish
Wish that I had something to call my own
A love for something so great
All of these things go away tonight
I forget how people have labeled me a liar
Laughed at my face mocked me
I forget it in the stars tonight
Such beauty so rare
Only your face could match
I slip away into the gaps between them
Surrounded in the warmth of the stars

Sends my heart racing
Many sleepless nights
Every word spoken
By your sweet lips
Makes me go weak
My hands lose their grip
Your beauty is exceeded
Only by your kindness
Before I met you
I walked around in blindness
Now that I know you
I'll never forget
I feel it's an angel
I happen to have met
If we stay only friends
It's fine by me
Just spending time with you
Makes me happy as can be
But if you were willing
I would treat you right
I'd be your Prince Charming
Keep you warm through the night
But as I have said
I'm happy as friends
Because friends share a love
A love that never ends

She doesn't like me like that
We're best friends
We give each other advice
We laugh like any other normal friendship
But she's not a lesbian
She's not bi
There's no hint of lemon
Or twist of lime
And it's never meant to be
So why make things awkward
It's just a hopeless case
Of love that's lost
It's just a hopeless case
Just a hopeless case...
Love?She's so beautiful.Love?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I love her just the way she is.
I shouldn't feel this love-
I'm only just a kid.
Her smile lights up my whole day.
Her eyes are brighter than the sunlight.
Her body has the perfect complexion.
She's who I think about at night.
I want to keep living, just for her.
She's about everything I've got.
I wish she felt the same way about me.
She's got me completely distraught.
My emotions for her go far too deep.
She has no idea how I want to hold her.
Without her, I'm painfully dying.
My body keeps getting colder.
When I look at her, It's impossible to look away.
She's so gorgeous, it's got me hypnotized.
When I close my eyes, all I see is her.
She's so amazing, she has me mezmorized.
I'd give her everything,
like she's the only girl.
As a matter of fact,
She's like the only person in my world.
So what I'm trying to get across,
I need her in my soul.
I want to be with her forever.
Even after we grow old.
I want her to be mine,
I'm so caught up in my emotion.
I wish I could
CrossroadsMy feelings are standing on crossroadsCrossroads11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Both sides lead to different places...
The one leads to my love...
The love where my heart and mind live...
The other leads to a whole new world...
Also filled with love... but this love
contains something I don't even know...
My feelings are standing on crossroads
And I just go straight ahead
To the place
That is in the middle
Of both kinds of love...
But no matter how far I walk...
No matter how long I walk...
My feelings will always stand on crossroads...
And when I am looking to the one side
I see security...
And I am happy to be there...
But when I look to the other side
I see a whole new world...
And I wish to see them...
My feelings are losing it...
My heart and mind are fighting...
My body is shivering...
And my soul is splitting apart...
And after a big fight,
between heart and mind
feelings and body...
My soul goes both ways...
And I will just continue
to walk straight ahead
Leaving the crossroads behind...

I have something to tell you,
but first give me your word -
promise you wont run away
after everything youve heard...?
I know that we are only friends,
and thats okay with me.
But I cant help but think of you,
youve become my fantasy.
I want you, like Ive never
wanted anything before.
And every time you say my name
I want you even more.
I love to listen to your voice,
it sends a shiver down my spine.
I love to watch you walk away...
I think your body is divine.
I could sit for hours
and stare at your beautiful face.
I picture you beside me
and my pulse begins to race.
But if this makes you uncomfortable
or chases you away,
Ill put aside my fantasy,
and friends is how well stay.
Youre very special in my life
and I dont want to lose you.
A commitment isnt what I want...
Unless, of course, you do...?
