you that I'm not afraid
You deserve someone who
will admit their mistakes
and catch you when you
fall face first because of yours,
or when you fall head
with no cushioning
to soften the blow.
I want my arms to be
the arms that you
are binded by,
constricted by nothing
but love rather than force.
And when he holds you
there, I know it's not
Well I want to
But forget him because
this is about us
and it's about time
we took a look
at what we have.
And we don't have
to be together
to know that
we should be,
and we don't have
to be together
we should be.
So I'll scream it to
the sky and hope
the stars respond
when making my wish--
grant me everything.
Somewhere Aloneunder sodium lamps we sawSomewhere Alone1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
a world devoid of color
deaf dumb and harshly blind
an atrocious blend of silence
and moments all but empty
that beckoned us away
the little circles of light
all promises and plans do
tittering and tottering
to vanish at the edge...
dreams they made us hope
and smile and laugh
and weep and cry and gag
all real yet nothing
but possibilities fabricated
that multiplied and divided
until all that we had left
were bits and pieces
some truths we shared
and the rest we buried
for half-truths and lies
sometimes held us together
TiredI'm tired.Tired7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tired of feeling lost, afraid, misunderstood.
Tired of wondering if I'm letting someone down by the choices I've made.
Tired of getting my feelings hurt, my ego bruised, my heart broken.
Tired of showing these varmin called emotions.
Tired of being me, of being weak.
Tired of trying to be this person I cannot see.
Tired of all the pain, all the struggle I've put upon myself.
Tired of not being the person I was.
Tired of hiding, hoping, and healing.
Tired of listening, learning...letting.
I'm tired...I'm tired.

Towards a lonely star
Ever bright and constant,
As it shed little drops of light
Down a grim painted sky.
Tonight I stood
Upon a wobbly metal bridge,
And stared at that window
In front of your bed;
I breathed and searched,
When the scent I found
Was not yours but
Of the cold listless night.
Frigid. Deserted. Lifeless.
And yet, I looked, on and on,
At your dew stained window
And wondered why
I could not see past the dark.
So I called you and you answered,
Your voice so sweet and broken by sleep-
Telling me about smiles,
Because yours is the only one
I so fondly remember.
And we talked and talked,
About things that matter,
About things that will,
And things that never did.
We talked about love,
About never leaving,
And never letting go.
Yes, we talked all night.
After a while, you told me
That your eyes need rest and so do you.
I smiled, even though I knew
That I wanted to hear you speak,
For just another minute, another second
or perhaps just a moment alon
your armsyour arms9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When your arms surround me,
Everything feels right.
The emptiness inside me,
Slips into the night.
I can feel my heart race
When you bring me to your chest.
And with this happy feeling
I could never stay depressed.
Not when you are holding me
And singing in my ear.
Not when I have this feeling
That's as strong as it's sincere.
When you make me laugh
There's no way that I can cry.
There's no way that I could want
To ever tell you good bye.
When I feel this love
Why would I throw it away?
Why would I ever leave
When it feels this good to stay?
When you're the one who lit the fire
With warm flames of love.
And taught my heart to fly again
In the skies up high above.
How could I ever leave you
When you hold the only key
That can unlock my heart
And also set me free.
Life is so confusing
And I don't know what to do.
But I know I want to spend my life
Proving that I love you.
I'm not saying we won't disagree
Or have a fight or two.
It's just that I would never mind
As long as it's with you.

"I'm the HERO!!!" He shouted, laughing with all his spirit.
Like the last chapter, you just simply stared at him, filling the air with awkwardness.
"But Where's my glasses? I I I " He looked at you, teary-eyed. "I I "
"Y-You Don't tell me you didn't even notice that." You stood up and you approached him.
He wandered around, frantically throwing his arms all over the place. He was already crying. It didn't even occur to you that you're already laughing hard.
"W-W-Why are you laughing?!" He shouted at the opposite direction.
"Who are you talking to?" Laughing a bit more, you stopped and you cleared your mind. Entering your house, you searched for the glasses that you placed on the drawer. Grabbing it, you dashed outside and you saw the man walking around.
"My glasses " He said. "Glasses glasses

Time flies, Dreams die.
Memories fade away As
photographs turning grey Hush
A wandering mind.
A far off future
So far away. Everyday
Blue eyes, Tired eyes.
Crawling that much closer To
closing infinitely You
Smile while you can.
Kisses on the cheek
All the ones you gave. Comfortable

A stabbed heart,
A bloodied knife.
Lost a life.
A broken neck,
A home made noose.
A smoking gun,
A half a face.
A roaring track,
A cold blood stain.
Another run over
By a train.
A cute fire,
A burning boy.
Thought a toy.
A piano wire,
A girl in two.
Another one stood
Up to you.
SpidersThey crawl into my deapest fears,Spiders6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can't get away and can't get near,
Left to suffer staring at thier evil faces,
I ran out of safe places,
They follow me wherever I go,
They become my smallest foe,
Full of vicious creepiness,
And I know you could care less,
But this poem is full of hate,
Never early never late,
They always show when I get a little grin,
Most lose there fear of them,
But I know of their evil plot,
The long battle we have fought,
They plan to take over when we least expect,
But I will always be the one to detect,
Don't laugh at my poem of instinct,
I hope they go extinct,
For those of you who hate me for this,
I don't care I have to diss,
They are evil and come in sizes of many,
But I hate the ones you cant see,
Don't get me wrong I hate them all,
But they are more vicious when they are small.

Nothing being said
Just listening to music
With your chin
Resting on my head
One arm across my neck
The other playing with my hair
Holding me close
It shows me that you care
Leaning up ageanist your chest
Listening to you breath
I feel completly safe
When you are holding me

leave this townleave this town3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was the moment she said goodbye
She held me for the last time
Now you are gone, no one knows where to
No one sees the pain you've left behind
Just beyond the horizon you'll find her
All the pieces you have left behind
Welcome to the first day off the rest of your life
For the first time you opened your eyes
You saw this world for what it really was
Without the clouds of your anger
So you left this town, and all you knew
You left us all wondering why
When a single tear fell from your eye
It seems like only a moment ago
You laughed with us, loved us
Like there was no future no worries
You screamed without a sound
Now you see this world without your sorrow
Just open up to who may find you
As you drew you final breath you think
About all the pain you left behind
It is waiting for you when you come back
So you turned your back, and closed your eyes

When I see your face
My heart changes pace
I turn my head away in shame
Because I know I am to blame
I have wanted you back
Ever since you gave me the sack
It is all my fault
That we are apart
Please forgive me
And except my plead
Let me be your prince
And tear down the fence
I know I am not your type
But please give me a chance to fight
Fight for your heart that contains your love
Because i know i can make you as bubbly as a lion cub.

My heart dropped
Dreams have popped
Love is unknown
Depression now sits on its thrown
The game is lost
But at what cost
Anger building up
And relief in one cut
Puddles on the floor
But hatred grows all the more
Nothing to hide
But your shame inside
So I will say goodbye

Im sorry i had to go. Im sorry I had to leave. Im sorry I left you behind, Im sorry I couldnt take it anymore. Most of all, Im sorry I gave up. A girl can only take so much before she breaks. Well, I finally broke. I was too strong for too long and I spent too much time behind my mask. Pardon the the tears that stain this page, but please remember I cried them for you. I was driven to be something I said I would never be. Between the emotional, physical and mental abuse and the neglect at home, I never had a chance there. And between the abuse, neglect, drama, gossip, rumors and society in general, I never had a chance there either. For the few real friends I had, thanks you. You kept me fighting, and Im sorry i finally lost the fight.
When my nightly routine became music, cutting, crying, more cutting, reading, writing and finally sleep, I knew I was too far gone and that it was only a matter of time before I gave up. Society's a bitch, so dont listen to it. Go your own way. I believe
The Lies We Tell OurselvesI'll stop pretending to be okay,The Lies We Tell Ourselves3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'll stop lying to myself and accept that
I'm in total disarray. I blinded myself with
a lie saying I didn't need you.
I lied to myself when I said I can be
happy without you. For awhile it worked
exactly like a perk, it made all my pain
disappear, all my agonies unreal, but my
uncontentment reappeared. I see no color,
I see no reason, I see nothing but a void
without a proper decorum. For once I wish
that I could turn back time, relive the moments
that made me feel so alive, because all I want
to do, is live my life forever with you.
As I got lost in my memories, oh the bittersweet
sensation, your angelic smile gleaming through the
white abyss of damnation. So this would be my
last confession, to save myself from utter
humiliation. How I wish you could see the pitiful
state I'm in, oh how I wish you said "you too"
when I uttered the words "I love you".

What makes us humanWhat makes us human2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What makes us human?
We were born.
We were raised.
We were living.
We were dying.
We faced each other.
With frustration and fear.
With horror and love.
We fought each other.
Because of greed.
Because of the will to survive.
We took so many lives.
We tore families apart.
We killed them.
We punished them.
We broke many hearts.
Of the consequences.
Of the future.
Of the feelings of the others.
We are greedy
We are evil.
We are monsters.
We are puppets controlled by those who want power.
We are strong.
We are weak.
We are addicted to a lot of things.
War and Peace.
Killing and Saving.
Hating and Loving.
Where is the border between good and evil?
Where is the border between love and hate?
Where is the border between death and life?
We ask questions.
We don´t get answers.
We look for them.
We will look for them till we die.
In the end there is nothing left.
There are no answers.
There will be regret.
Death will greet us and we kn

Creating worlds tethered in thought

A skill I live to exercise
I am in no way excluded
Watch as I victimize
The truth of the matter
The ignorance in their eyes
Subtlty and nearly innocently
Spewing a cascade of lies
Weilding a metaphorical knife
Inconspicuously I cut our ties
Our bonds grow weaker, our oneness faltering
My cries transparent,
Droplets fall upon you
Blurring your wasted vision beneath these digital skies
Fog wafts through a mispercieved window,
The nature of truth, previously plaigerized,
Beware of my mirage
The fog is also the consistency of truth
If you imagine, you will see
Our nonexistent connection
Your confirmation plays two roles
You've fallen again to smokey misconception
Manipulated by your own dillusion
