VanityBeauty is not just skin deep,
It thrives in a person's soul,
The benefit of surface beauty some do reap,
But the beauty within is what makes one whole,
If one is vain the world will see,
But the kind and meek none do seek,
Fame and money they say is the worlds true key,
But love and true happiness, akin to the meek.

When she hurts no one sees.
When she bleeds no one cares.
When she cries no one hears.
She's gentle not rough. She's kind not cruel. She's sweet not mean. Because of this she blends in with the crowds.
When she loves no one cares.
When she sighs no one hears.
When she smiles no one sees.
She's dark not bright. She's quiet not loud. She's sad not happy. She's EMO, she's nonexistent but constantly ridiculed.

a grasping darkness called
She sits in her corner,

Death seems her only path,
An easy way
from the pain,

No one here to see my tears,
My eyes are searching for a light,
A way to ease my fears.
The pain that I feel,
The sadness I have in me,
The need for love is so real,
I need to feel it, don't you see?
I'm lonely and sad,
I'm sacred and weak,
Please don't make me feel bad,
Please, I am no freak.
EmoA tear seems to fall from spaceEmo7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and land on her check.
It adds to a river
that falls off her chin.
The stain of blood on her sleeve,
She looks at her arm
with pulsing eyes she stares at the blood,
like her tears, running.
Afraid of her peers comments
labeling her for something she is not.
Emo, the word rang sourly.
The tears ran faster,
as though racing the blood.
Her black hair clings to her face,
and again she cuts.
One for the laughter,
Once for the looks,
another for her pain,
Her arm pulsing,
One for the names,
One more for the pushing.
She watches her pain drain from her arm.
She smiles, then thinks,
they will pull back her sleeve
and laugh at her pain, again.
Emo, the word rand sourly.
Emo, she thought.
Emo, she said out loud
and she cried.

My endI'll never be afraid to give my life,My end3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To lay all I have down on the line,
To take away someone else's pain and strife,
For a dream I save, I shall give up mine.
I'll be in the path of the oncoming train,
I'll take the hit, shield you with my own hands,
The blood is mine, I don't feel the pain,
I've given up on all my plans.
I will fight today to give you one more chance,
It's another war that I must fight,
To save you now from the reaper's deadly lance,
I'll give up on the goals I've had in sight.
I'll put my life after my comrade, I'll save him from death,
I'll make sure he goes home to his family tonight,
Giving up my last breath,
I will never let you be the one to move toward the light.
I'm ready to die to keep you here,
Keep your dreams alive, your heart beating,
I can die without fear,
When I know it's only my end I'm meeting.

When she cries you won't see it.
When she bleeds you won't know it.
When she fades you won't notice it.
She's just a girl who's number you dial.
When she hurts you don't know it.
When she falls you don't see it.
When she dies you won't notice it.
She's just a girl who's held you above the rest.
When she slips away you won't realize it.
When she breaks free you won't feel it.
When she cries at night you won't hear it.
She's just a girl who's never going to be your best.
When she's gone maybe you'll see her.
When she's gone maybe you'll miss her.
When she's gone maybe you'll love her.

nor does the black hair hide the eyes,

once so strong, once so whole.
the bracelets don't hide the cuts,
nor does the blood hide the sorrow,
the fishnet frames the heart..
now so pained, now so apart.
loving doesn't hide the denial,
nor does feeling hide the absence,
the sadness frames the eyes.

and i dont like pink
you use those as reasons

we're just not like the rest
sure we cry
we want to die
but none of you understand
its not like we had planned
to live life like this
to spend our days
depressed and amiss
we're not bad people
we dont worship satan
we're not out to kill anyone
we just dont like the world
as much as everyone else
and we dont like ourselves
as much as we could
but we're ok with that
you can call us ugly
you can call us fat
but you cant change who we are
we are emo

Emo?I wear striped socks.Emo?7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I listen to Lostprophets.
I sometimes wear a black tie with tiny little sculls on it.
I read books.
I'm not too pretty.
I eat chocolate when I'm depressed.
I sometimes feel as though
The only right thing to do
Is to crawl up inside of me and die
With Tori Amos in the background.
Am I Emo enough for you?
You wear everything striped lately.
You lined up your soul in black and white.
You hate pink.
You say that you hate it when people label you.
Then maybe you should quit labelling yourself?
Maybe you should stop looking down on girls because they wear pink.
Maybe they're being themselves as well.
You don't know if
Ever wanna crawl up in themselves and die.
You don't know them anymore than you know yourself.
Maybe they also cut themselves and hate their life?
Maybe they listen to Lostprophets too.
And by the way;
I know your little secret.
You are not depressed.
The earth doesn't rotate around you.
Your parents _do_ love you.
You _are_ special and unique
If I let the tears fallI feel a pain so real and deep,If I let the tears fall3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wonder why I just let it steep.
My heart aches for what was mine,
But you don't come back across the line.
You stay on your side with her,
And I stay here not feeling very sure.
You said I would be your wife,
Told me everyday I was your life.
But now you say the same to this child,
She's not sweet nor is she mild.
I wonder how you can love a poison like that,
She plays a game you are the mouse and she is the cat.
I cry over and over wondering what went bad,
It's been a long time but I am still sad.
If I cry once more will it leave me,
If I find a better love will I be able to see?
Will I be able to live without you,
If I just let my tears fall true.

Someone who matters more than life itself.
I never had anyone I could count on,
But when you came around I found something in my heart,
I found a feeling I'd never known in my life,
And for once I didn't feel alone in this place.
And when you're gone,
It's like my world never had a start,
All I can feel is pain and all I know is strife,
When you're not here so I may see your face.
Use to be I'd sit alone here underneath this old oak tree,
Nobody held my hand through the night,
My world was dark as the sky when the clouds roll in,
There was no lightning blazing across the sky.
But then you came along and set me free,
You brought the sun in to give me light,
The clouds lifted up like heaven was driving back sin,
Through the sky light begins to fly.
I'd been let down so many times before,
I didn't know how to trust or love anyone in my life,
Feelings were dead words to me,
And I couldn't begin to see the world in any other way.
But now you're here and you're all I

She had never known the feeling of love he could share,
The last time he pushed her down she found she couldn't stand,
She cried herself to sleep knowing that he didn't care.
She had never seen love in the eyes of a man,
She had never seen a smile shining so brightly for her,
The last time he glared at her across the table, she ran,
She sought out help, he could take her life, she was sure.
She had never heard anyone say she was a beautiful girl,
She had never heard anyone say so gently and surely that they loved her,
This time when she went to bed, protectively around her his arms did curl,
This time the only help she needed was him, she was sure.

There's a side of me that cries, a little part of sin,
There's a side that laughs, there's a side that's cruel,
There's a side of me that smiles, a little part of wild,
There's a bit of temper in my veins, and I can be a mule,
There's passion in my heart, and there's still a bit of a child.

I'll build you a home with all the love in my heart,
Lay our babies to bed in their bunk,
I'll give your dreams a start.
I'm a bit crazy,
I can get a little sad,

Yet it does not come
I hate that I have no strife
This alone I must overcome
How hard I do try
To depart from the pack
Little is it known to I
This alone holds me back
I feel so much 'pain'
Yet I know I shouldn't
About my life I can't complain
And if I could I wouldn't
I sit alone each night
Until the mornings arrive
Imagining some fake plight
Which I must survive
My poetry to me seems strong
I put emotions into it
Fearing that it won't be long
Before someone realizes I'm full of shit<b>
EmoSo what if I'm emo?Emo6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So what if I cry?
I'm not THAT emotional,
I dont want to die.
So what if I dress in a different style?
There's no need to scream and run for a mile
I dont like to cut and abuse my arm,
I am not depressed,
so why cause self harm?
Could it be that I am just like you?
That I can smile, giggle and laugh along too?
Could it be that I am happy with myself?
It's just that I am not some pretty doll on the shelf.
Could it be that the only reason i dye my hair black;
Is because I dont want to be some barbie in a bimbo girl pack.
These are the reasons, and I'll tell you why,
that I dont look in the mirror and start to cry.
I know Im not perfect,
I'm sure you will agree
But I am so very positive,
as positive as can be
That Im not like you,
Oh dont make me laugh!
I dont spend hours on my make-up's mask
I'm totally self-confident,
Ill smile for all to see.
Because the great thing about being emo,
Is that I am happy, with just being me.
Dont be afraid of who you are.<

And one day I'll fight back.
One day I'll scream this doesn't hurt,
And one day you'll be the one who falls.
One day I'll cease to bend,
When you make my bones crack.
One day my words will become sharp and curt,
The tumbling will start and down go the walls.
Let the world see the man,
The liar behind the screen.
The one who feels like a man when he pushes me down,
The one who laughs when tears fall down my face.
The flames you may fan,
Let the burnt walls lean.
Let my tears surround you and let yourself drown,
Imprisoned in the pain your life did embrace.
I'll scream out this doesn't hurt,
When I fall to the ground.
My words they will be sharp and curt,
I'll scream it out, A new life I found.
