A long lost placeOne upon a time,A long lost place5 years ago in Other More Like This
In this one time,
In this one place,
A boy loved a girl.
In a galaxy far away,
In this away state
In this far off time
A girl loved a boy.
In a far of place
In a mistaken day
The boy and the girl
never really loved each other
for you see
loved two different people
they lost their way
lost their place
and lost their time entirely.

Keep me safe from the depths of the oceans.

Misery, she loves company.
Loathing for someone else,
To dance an evil wicked dance.
Dragging you down,

How she comforts you,

That hurt feeling, she says,
Goes away after time, embrace it.
For, Misery, she loves company;
We all know that feeling.
Misery, yes; Misery,
Melancholy sadness; a comfort and joy.

Youd never know.
Not a damsel, and not in distress
Not a maiden, and not locked in a tower.
She would wear heels,
But they get in the way of kicking the bad guys butt.
Never week and never scared
She laughs in the face of fear.
Spiders, snakes, even bears
Are no match for her.
No matter how tough she seems
And no matter how far she roams.
To him, she will always be,
His little girl.
Wearing a dress;
And sliding down the slide.
Six years old
And naive to the world.

Who will put your heart
Back together. I am sorry
That it is me
Who will tear it
Leave you a mess

Staining the floor.

17. BloodI am not going to romanticize it17. Blood5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Cutting does not deserve that honor
For when you press that sharp blade
To your flesh; one thing alone will happen
You will bleed.
There is no set way everyone cuts
Cutting is not all the same sort of relief to all
I can tell you; I prefer a knife and I cut my arms
A bitter sweet moment of life and death balanced
In my blood.
People form habits an addiction
Cutting becomes part of your life and liberty
It is not safe, no certainly not safe;
Even the careful make mistakes and loose
More than blood.
I am not going to give in
Cutting does not control me, I am strong
There will come a day, when I do not think of it
For this is a habit; I cannot help and I write this
In my blood.

Piercing and animalistic that stoic glances of disappointment.
I wonder if anything could conquer
Those onyx pools that you possess.
Immediately following that gawking gaze,
I apologize for my behavior; and flash an honest smile.
Then, I give you a taste of my home,
Through a passing glance of my baby blues.

I thought it was ruined
Until I met you.
My parade was saved

if it rains on your parade.
There is no greater joy than dancing in it.
There is no greater joy than kissing in it.
And there is no greater joy than being able to
spend every dropping water filled day with you.

To capture a response or promise you could never keep.
A forgotten vow lets you feel like you knew what you
Were thinking before you made a mistake or a firm decision.
All there was something that you wanted from me
Before this day; you should have asked because now it is almost too late.
I will still be here for you; thick or thin and much longer
And well, more than in sickness and in health.
