All I want is my Parents 1I woke up annoyed. Today was another day of no school was everyone one picks on me and junk.All I want is my Parents 15 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"I hate my life." I said as I laid in bed not wanting to wake up. Then my dog 'Yoda' jumped on my bed. I groaned as the giant Golden Retriever sat on me. Yoda sniffed at my cheek as I groaned. He barked and I said "Fine, I'm up."
I got out of bed and pushed my dog out the door. I walked up to my dresser and got dressed in purple corduroy skinny pants and a black t-shirt. Then I put on my purple fingerless gloves I bought at Hot Topic and I, then, put on my black baseball hat. I jogged down the stairs and walked into the kitchen. No one was there. I screamed "MOM! DAD????? PARENTAL UNITS?????? ANNOYING ADULTS????PERSON MARRIED TO MY MOM WHO ALWAYS IS SITTING AROUND WATCHING FOOTBALL?????"
I got no answer. I looked around. My parents always were home in the mornings even if they weren't they always had breakfast laid out for me. I looked around the house and fell to my knees. I never believed the
The Masked ManEvery morning I wake up.The Masked Man2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crawl out of bed.
Take a deep breathe.
And pull the mask over my face.
Just so no one can see what I mess I am.
I pretend to be my old self.
The funny guy.
Who is optimistic about everything.
The guy that is bothered by nothing.
The guy that is absolutely fearless.
That's all they see.
Partially this is still me.
But I feel that "me" might be slowly dying.
Turning to ash.
Blowing away with the wind.
Soon to be all gone.
Underneath that mask.
I feel like nothing more than a sacred, lonely child.
Sitting in the corner curled up in a ball.
Rocking myself back and forth.
All the pain.
All the suffering.
It all just eating away at me.
Nibbling at my soul.
Devouring my sanity.
With each day that passes.
The pain just seems to intensify.
It seems like there is no end to all of the heartache.
It shows no signs of letting up.
All I can do is deal with the pain.
All I can do is make it until tomorrow.
Maybe tomorrow is the day everything will ch

Do i exist at all
If i walk away will you remember my name
A nobody lost in a sea of the forgotten
What have i accomplished
A life of failed attempts
Would you know who i am if you saw me
Would you care
What am i
A empty husk of pointless emotions
Lost and unwelcome
Do you see me
I feel invisible

En vano fueron nuestras advertencias y señales.
Nosotros sabíamos de nuestra inmunidad.
¡Intentamos salvarlos! A ellos y a la vida de su entorno.
Pero no escucharon, o su orgullo predominó.
Ahora sólo quedan ruinas humeantes como prueba de su indiferente insensatez.
Y quedamos nosotros.
Y la radiación.

organize a life i know i'd be proud of because you've
made me who i am thus far and i want to make you proud
camped out in my imagination but
held close to my heart
spurned from static electricity
turned out of random unmanageable
a dream never forgotten and
never ever replaced, remember you're special
last one to cuddle with on the floor
and cover me in hives but smother me in
dear, dear, dear, kisses and brown-eyed admiration
you will always be my sweet, sweet, sweet memory
Loves Song..Would my lonliness abate if I saw that you were lonely too?Loves Song..3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I think not, for all that my heart wishes, is to see the light shine in your eyes again.
If not for me then I must conceed to another.
It is a hard admission to make when my soul is still beating with yours.
I am not a martyr and neither do I wish to be, but I am a realist and to that I must give in.
So gently though my heart does ache
I pray that time, my pain, will take
To place it where my soul can sigh
To dry my tears, that I do cry
So sad I am, but worry naught
For life is gained, if often sought
Amongst the echoes of the lost
A memory shared at any cost
I place myself where you can find
The love we had and once did bind
like ribbons weave in tresses deep
Oft to remember, then to keep
So take a breath and then move on
To sunny days and loves pure song
To find the heart your soul longs for
Today a step to ever more...

cuz it's not only fantasy
No one can see
no one but me
but i want believe
So i can see
blue skies all over me
and this set me free
So i can feel

and this let me breathe
I want believe in a dream
cuz it's not only just a dream
So i can see
floating pictures in the sky
and don't have to wonder why
So i can feel
my feet flying high

Shedding a light within our dark
To make each day much better spent
To guide us to the place we're meant
This hand to hold when feeling blue
A hug that's passed from me to you
Soft kisses to brighten up your day
A love that's shared in every way
Souls in tune to a song birds sing
A gentle comfort that love can bring
The melding of two into what's just one
A brighter glow to each days sun
These gifts of love we'll share complete
Upon this day when we will meet
Sweet Valentine will you be mine?
From this day forward, till end of time..

they sputter about, springing up, sparks and showers,
and the stories in my eyes wait for you
to see them, read them, find me... believe them.
A deep blue teardrop falls into clear waters
My insides roll free before your open eyes
spread out like a sheet, a map of my mind
But you must be blind or you choose not to see
for you plod upon it all, you trod upon me
and twists, twirls, spreads
You are oblivious, perceive nothing
I'm overlooked and I fade,
like tiny crystal tendrils
I've been told before I am easy to read
and I've thrived by that each day,
But of course the one I want the most

So no-one can hear
Cringing in madness
shaking in fear
My mind is a blank
and yet I still dream
Of yesterdays pain
the angst I have seen
My tears they do fall
I scream out your name
No-one is here
You never came
I writhe in my bed
No sleep to be had
A name etched in blood
has driven me mad
the strings of my heart
A mournful tune
that keeps us apart
I need you to see
who I really am
Not who you want
I don't give a damn
Words of the soul
that cuts me so deep
Blood that is spilled
as angels do weep
My eyes I do close
and yet I can see
There is no tomorrow
For you or for me

sure how long she'd been gone. The lights flickered and then went
out. Then the sirens began to sound, and red lights took over. She
waited for the usual suits and the white coats to enter her room, it'd
been like clock-work. They'd enter her room ask her a few questions,
insist she take some pill and if she resisted they'd hold her down and
inject her then give her the pill.
She waited, expected to be hurried out or moved but nothing happened.
The lights flickered back on briefly before going out completely

Softly; as they mask my pain
I say goodbye, as you leave me now
free of hurt, as I wipe your brow
Many days, you struggled so
Whether to stay or to let go
Loss of strength, but strong until
Your body succumbed againt your will
I see the man you were to me
so full of life and so carefree
Taking in each breath God gave
Till in the end, no one could save
Forgotten, you will never be
Each day I remember and I see
What a gift you gave and shared
Your love, your smile and how you cared
So rest your head and go in peace
The pain is gone, and now will cease
In heaven, where the good souls go
Above us watching, this I know...
Endearment..I felt that I was loved todayEndearment..4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In such a very special way
No stars and hearts did I see
Just a bond between you and me
This love of ours grows stronger still
strengthened with trust and purest will
Seen through eyes we've opened wide
Needing no pretence, much less to hide
I see that life can be so cruel
That love can capture any fool
It takes a steadfast heart of gold
To weather the storm and not to fold
The warmth within will make it last
secure the future and blur the past
To see each day as one to share
To take a chance, if we would dare
I feel that I am loved today
In such a very special way
Treasured family by my side
Hope and dreams are open wide..

It has me in this place,
so full of hope and clothed in grace
Shadowed not in night, but day
To lead me to a better way
It beats so steadily,
filled with love and such serenity,
Compassion etched in every thud
Bound by faith and tied in blood
It filters, the good and bad
To peruse with trust and see whats had
To gain, to give and share this life
In sharing pain and avoiding strife
To you, I give myself
Of honesty and boundless wealth
The purest form of friendship true
This gift from me, I give to you..
True colorsThere's not much to say, I was in a really bad place recently..True colors4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I reached out for help only to find that there wasn't any.
I don't do things for sympathy and I never do things for attention.
I never want others to know, it's not worth a mention
So this was particularly hard for me.
I needed help and it took calling another country
The "best friend" in the next room didn't even see me.
I'm tired of being invisible so, I'm choosing me.
Excuses about why or what one could or didn't do
Won't change that the actions showed true
The people who really gave a damn reacted then
In just enough time to help me start over again
To you who betrayed me, find your own way
You showed your true colors at the end of the day

Then taste of mine
kiss those fingertips
Drink me like fine wine
Sip me deeply, slowly, true
As I tremble, pull you near
Quivering at what we do
As passions raise, hold me dear
Think only of my caress
As you hold me in your arms
Take it all, just possess
And let me sample all your charms
My beloved, be mine tonight
Make me want you so much more
Hold me close through the night
Let the freedom of our love pour
When I stare into those eyes
See that passion blaze
Hear those stifled cries
Our hearts revel in the daze
