you, my dearest, are a splendid summer sun

and let them muddy your bright pretty mind.

What Love IsI was just a lonely girlWhat Love Is4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Only a few months past sixteen
But still naïve
Wishing for the kind of romance
You see in the movies.
He was a lost soul I thought I could save
He made me feel special
For the first time in my life
He needed me
I never realized what a burden that could be
And so I told him
'I don't know what love is
But I know what it's not.
It's not living life on a leash
Or living life to please.
I'm no one's property
I belong only to me
Love is supposed to build you up
Not tear you down
I may not know what love is
But I know it's not you and me
That boy's ways left me broken inside
I fell into the arms of a friend
Started to feel hope again
It felt so good to feel worthwhile
Oh, I fell hard and fast
And so it didn't last
I had seen the light of good in him
No matter how cold he might be now
I couldn't get it go
I was lost in heartbreak
Until I could see
I don't know what love is
But I know what it's not
It's not letting someone walk all over you
Making excuses bec
A SecondA smile is fleeting,A Second4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but please, for me
a second if you will?
A furrowed brow
and a glum frown,
Grab my hand,
if you can?
Tears streak down your face
like rain across the sky.
Each splashing to the ground,
and echoing endlessly between
The trees sway and shake and twist in agony,
as thunder rolls over head.
The wind is playing a tune
and I only wish these words
would harmonize each note
so you could hear it--
for just a second.

The Truth to LifeDo we have a purpose, is a question one will often askThe Truth to Life10 years ago in Open More Like This
Is there a higher power out there, some greater task
The truth will hurt many, not only a few
People have a hard time dealing with that which is true
There is nothing greater that watches your back
Deal with it, stop crying and build your own stack
You are responsible for the life that you lead
It is not someone else's fault when you don't get what you need
If one wants the stars, they must be grabbed by one's own hand
Nothing in life is freely given there is no promised land
So the question remains, why are we here
For those without faith, the answer is painfully clear
We live only for today and if we are lucky the morrow
To us there is no afterlife, but that brings us no sorrow
Self improvement is our main goal and it starts in the here and now
We refuse to be filled with illusions of grandeur and get fat off them like a cow
The best of us seek improvement in every area we can
Without the proper balance of self there can be no co
I can't help itI can't help it.I can't help it3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
No matter what I do, something always haunts me.
That little thing right there, prevents me from feeling okay.
I feel childish, but somehow, I am truly afraid of my own well-being.
I don't know how to feel good, and therefore; I don't.
Please, it's not just something I say. It's something I know.
And even if it's a bad thing, I'm glad to be so sure about something.
Because honestly, I have no clue.
I can't help it.

I can taste our sun-colored passion,
dappled sunshine lies like discarded piano keys,
stretching across the wintry yards of cotton seascapes,
You are that brave spring to my darkest winter,
don't deprive me of your promise...
I plucked the sun from its golden boughs in the sky
tossed the citrus bounty into the boiling water in my head
Such a heady concoction of acidity and sunshine
I wish to devour it whole
watch my teeth glimmer in the semi-permanence of night
I would be remembered as the man who ate the sun
I wish to conquer and conquer the untold depths of my heart
Something about you gives me that silvery armor of a child
when you are around I could conquer the world in innocence
Something about you dips my heart in the sun
combustible in every fiber of every muscle
drown me in ether
I want to exude imminent explosion
and when you bare your teeth in breath-stealing smile
I will be your personal fiery g
A titanic kind of love.He could pick you apart like your favourite pastry; find every glob and sugared jewel, those cinnamon swirls you buried from view. His fingers peeled you down from crown to feet and he did it so tenderly you wouldn't even notice until you slipped on your own skin, amazed that you'd been naked in his presence. He knew you never watched the ground as you walked, eyes always on the sky and possibilities above. It was a hushed undressing, a stripping of water-based paints you thought were permanent. A beige canvas dripping wet, colours pooling on the floor, you'd shades trickling from your eyes and he told you he thought blank pages were beautiful because they were splattered with promise.A titanic kind of love.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

-Lock and Key-My heart is heavy with unwept tears-Lock and Key-4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
My mind is plagued by foolish fears
I don't know where to turn
I'm looking for a safe place to run
but there's nowhere in sight
The world is spinning around me
Everything is a blur
Is this what I get for trusting again?
I'll keep my heart under lock and key
They'll never know what they cannot see
Even as I fall apart again
So I'll keep my heart under lock and key
Never again feeling this pain that fills me
My heart is safest when it belongs to only me
Oh-oh, under lock and key
Like a message in a bottle
Lost on the seas
Forgotten and unseen
Living life in a waking dream
Unable to bear such an empty reality
But life loses meaning as you cling to fantasy
Disconnected from the world around you
I've kept my heart under lock and key
They don't know what they cannot see
Even when I fell apart again
Yeah, I've kept my heart under lock and key
Been numb for far too long
I want to feel something inside
I need to feel alive
Oh, been under lock and
Just WriteThe lack of inspirationJust Write4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is an evil thing:
When the idea is there,
The words are not.
It usually works both ways -
Or does not, one should say.
When writing is all you've got
To get out of your miserable state,
When writing becomes your therapy
To solve whatever psychological
Problem, fear or anxiety
You are currently going through,
Not to write becomes impossible.
But your biggest problem lies in one question,
A familiar question to every writer:
"What to write?"
It, too, works both ways:
It should not be about the unfeasibility,
The lack of ideas, words, imagery;
But about the impossibility to choose
Between too many subjects and more.
It all starts by taking a decision.
Eliminate the cannots, will-nots, may-nots
Untie, untangle, undo the knots
Which are obstructing your imagination
Let it run free and wild
Let it pour its ink as it wishes
Let it blacken your white page
Give your pen its well-deserved liberty
Let it draw some curvy meaningful lines
I am...I AM a girl that no one truly understands,I am...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I WONDER if my life will ever get better,
I HEAR mean voices in my head,
I SEE things which aren't really there, which aren't really true,
I WANT to live like a girl wants to live....happy,
I AM a girl that no one truly understands.
I PRETEND to be someone I'm not, just to avoid the questions,
I FEEL invisible, unwanted, insignificant, compared to everyone that surrounds me,
I TOUCH my tears and wipe them away when no one is looking,
I WORRY that I'll never have a normal life again,
I CRY when my mask slips,
I AM a girl that no one truly understands.
I UNDERSTAND that you cannot get everything you want in life,
I SAY that I'm fine when I'm really not,
I DREAM that one day something in my life will go right,
I TRY to sort out my own life, aswell as being there for my friends,
I HOPE that I will be able to smile and laugh one day and actually mean it,
I AM a girl that no one truly understands.

The World of Words and WhispersThe World of Words and Whispers2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Words of Whispers.
I write my feelings down upon these papers.
Strong magic each indentation my pen makes,
Binds with the folds of the papers.
The words sewed into them are more powerful.
They grow with every page I turn.
With every line I fill and take.
Words of Whispers.
It is the only way I can say how I feel.
Words are strong.
I don't need my fists to win a fight.
I bind my words and know I am always right.
My words written on paper are my weapons.
My life stories.
My personality seen through my characters.
They dance across these pages.
They tell lies.
They tell truths.
Nevertheless, they tell people that I am me.
You fulfill my fantasies.
I write them down.
You would never betray me.
You take my pain.
You take my name.
And make a greater me.
You make me strong.
I'll never do wrong.
With my words, I will move the Earth.
I'll open doors to whole new worlds.
I'll close their eyes and open their minds.
I'll open their hearts to whole new emotions.
Breaking OutQuestions stir in the back of my mindBreaking Out3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trails of pebbles leave mysteries to find
A collection of bandages helps me to mend
Lets just turn the page and skip to the end
The end of the longing forever repressed
A resurrection for dreams that were never confessed
Acceptance for something I've always denied
The removal of walls that I've built up inside
I've reinforced them with pain over the years
Treated them with denial to hold back the tears
They kept everything out but they trapped me within
Once I break these walls down where am I to begin?
When I flip through past pages my memories emerge
The haunting song in my head sounds just like a dirge
Should I be grieving the time that has all gone to waste?
Is it ever too late to have lost hopes replaced?
Answers bubble in the depths of my heart
If I could only understand them I'd know where to start
When you're just waking up you can't see through the haze
Breaking out of yourself feels like one giant maze

Stop telling me who I am
Don't tell me what I need to be
I am sick of walking in your shoes
All I want to be is me
Don't act like you have to do this
It is not your fault for who I am
Stop telling why these things may help
Cause I really don't give a damn
Stop telling me what to do in life
Don't act like so much is at stake
Stop pushing me so far away
This is the road I want to take
