How It All Ends UpThe girl you were once friends with left you.
The nerd you grew up with became popular.
The guys that talked to you now talk to your former friend.
The bully that picks on you used to be a nerd you grew up with.
This girl who seemed unbreakable,
The guy who seemed strong,
The girl that always laughed,
The guy that never stopped trying,
Finally gave up.
You left the girl you were once friends with.
You were a nerd who became popular.
The guys that talked to your former friend now talk to you.
You pick on the nerd you grew up with.
And you broke. And crumbled. And cried. Always gave up on the impossible things.
The past became the present which became your future.
What happens in the past will affect your future and what happens in the future with affect your past.
This is how it all ends up.
How it all ended up for a simply nerdy, girl who lived in a quiet neighborhood with her friend.

Daisy ChainsHeld captiveDaisy Chains3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
in your daisy chains
yet incapable of breaking free
I envy those held
in iron shackles for
even they have more
free will than me.
It was I who choose
my own prison
lost in your far away eyes
so stepped into your snare
woven only out of air.
My cage is one without bars
but I have no more ability to leave
than a man locked behind
immovable metal doors.
I watched you weave
links of wild flowers
to slip around my wrists
knowing once it was in place
I would never walk free again
but helpless I was
to make a motion to stop
your daisy chains
from binding me.
Simply End.I don't want to feel anymoreSimply End.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nothing at all
I don't even want to be
Sometimes I want to dissapear from the world
I don't know what to do!
Im so lost
I feel so much,
my feelings are violent
I want to cry it all out
But my parents would freak out
And bother me
But sometimes I wish I could tell them everything
Just spill everything out
Just pour my feelings out
I listen to everyone
I let them pour there problems into me and I listen
Because no one else listens to them
And I guess Im a good listener
But I wish I had that one friend like me that would listen to anything and not judge
I wish my whole life was perfect
And that it would never mess up
Im so confused
I want this to all end.
Just simply end.

Life AgainIf you had the chance,Life Again3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would you start again?
If you had the chance,
Would you love again?
Would give life a second try?
Could you kill the pain inside?
Would you burn the heartbreak and dry the tears?
Could you keep the fears and rage inside?
Is it really worth it?
Is it worth the death?
All the sadness and rage
The love and hate?
Is it worth living again?

but then you couldn't,
So i came to your house and we hired some movies.
We hired the scariest movies just so we could be hard core,
but I think you just wanted me to be scared and hold you,
I hoped so too.
For some reason we had been spending lots of time together,
We were best friends but i could tell something in you felt more,
I know i did.
The first movie we sat next to each other and tried to be scared,
The second we just couldn't help but laugh, and you made it so much funnier,
You are good at making me laugh.
But then the third movie i only remember parts of, because i couldn't help but stare at you,
And the fourth we didn't watch, just let it run all the way through the credits,
Because you were watching me too.
Then we found ourselves just laying together for hours,
Just staring into each other's eyes barely saying a word,
You have beautiful eyes.
Then suddenly it was the early hours of the morning,
the sun was slowly rising, and we continued to lay u

Sipping a cup of tea,
Watching the birds fly by,
Sighing your name.

Everything is quieter,
Staring at my palm,
Trying to read my destiny.
Scratching my head,
Reminiscing the past,
Asking that hard question,
Why him and not me?

Ten ThingsTen things that would be the last thing I ever told you,Ten Things5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've never known pain as much as I knew when I knew you,
I've never felt such strong love and hate at the same time,
All I wanted at some point was you and nothing else,
I want to kill you and a second after that to hold you in my arms,
I would give all that I have to have your love for just one day,
There is no expression in my vocabulary to express what I feel,
I want to go to a place that has nothing that will ever remind me of you.
I remember your face in the best of moments and the worst,
I am glad that you are finally fading away from my mind,
Far far away, away never to return again, thank god,
Away, so that at last my poor soul may heal.

Once you leave you can never come back,
Make up your mind and do not hesitate,
Start walking away and never look back.
Burn all the bridges as you cross over,
Don't shed a tear when you hear the flames,
Never look back, keep on walking,
Just walk away and leave everything behind.
HappyIt's not all sad despite the tears,Happy3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sometimes there is a smile or two,
A few minutes of comfort and relief,
An oasis of silence amidst the chaos,
In those moments I listen to you speak,
The melody of your nonsense is a lullaby,
Reminding me of what I used to be,
A little boy who was happy just to play.
Two sides to every storyMy happiness is like the chalkTwo sides to every story3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
on a blackboard
my sadness is like the black
of that same board
erased with such ease
the dark remains
the light just a tease
My happiness is like life
a journey to end
my sadness is the knife
giving time a trim
knowing whats right
doing whats wrong
not a bit contrite
always a sad song
My happiness is you
your words razor-sharp
My sadness is me
words a broken harp
you inspire me to be tough
when I want to give up
your love may be rough
but it fills my cup
My happiness is short-lived
moments with you are few
My sadness is always here
in everything I do
time with you is like heaven
you fill me with self-worth
but I always seem to manage
to hurl myself back to earth
My happiness is the cure
I so desperately need
My sadness is the poison
on which my mind will feed
nothing more do I want
then to live life happily
but its all just a mirage
this life is my cruel reality
Sweet NothingsDo you remember those unforgettable days we had together,Sweet Nothings3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When we used to sit on a bench at the park for hours,
Just sitting together holding hands and whispering sweet nothings,
Then we watched the sun set hugging with my hand playing with your hair.
You used to tell me sometimes all of the sudden that you are afraid,
I always knew but asked you what of nonetheless,
You told me it was of losing this great thing we have, the togetherness,
I never said anything but just held you stronger in my arms.
You whispered I love you so many times on that bench,
At some point I believed that it was a fact, like the moon circling earth,
Now, years later, it's all a distant memory, as if it was a book I read,
I haven't seen you since that day you threw away my heart.
I am not angry any more, I've been through a lot since,
I wish we never broke up, you never fall out of love,
I am still in love, despite all the women and the alcohol since then,
The ways are passing by and I still hope I'l
Good To Have You AroundNot everything I do has a reasonGood To Have You Around5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You don't have to always understand me
Nor do I always need to be there for you
Somethings, I believe, aren't to be shared
I don't want you to always turn to me
I don't mind being the last one to know occasionally
Just make sure we don't tear apart
Yet bear in mind we are only almost, but not really, one
We both need breathing room now and then
You have your own life and I have mine
Know one thing, and this I say with a smile
It's good to have you around

You can deny it,
Turn your back on it,
But all to no avail.
Run away from it,
Or try to fight it,
Hide from it,
Or slander it.
Don't like it,
Or approve of it,
But accept it - you must,
Because it's there and it's real.
Children in the WallsGames of power in a playgroundChildren in the Walls3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Innocent in their cruelty
We view the world as a game of kings and queens
Through the grey-tinted veil of our humanity
Blessed be though the windows of our souls
Where the wise but evil ravens perch with shrill vibrations of sorrow
And the little girl mourning in the corner is our universe's chain and ribbon
While the fallen angel weeping in the corner asks why he fell
And the kings and queens smile (no answer) and bite their tears as drink, thinking to disregard
The luxury of a conscience is the only one left undesired
Because there is always a corner of crying children
Far too trusting to suffer in mute despair's hope
We are, and always will be, hungry animals trapped in the walls (of what?)
And it all started with games of power in a playground
With crying children as silent judges

A Poetic DeathParked behind mysterious conceptsA Poetic Death3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A delightful poem
Argues its vanishing indifference
The headline stays oblivious to the stanza
To the life developed under words
Irrelevant to all except the one who is curious
Patience is not disturbed as calmness compiles
Though what shifts in words,
Shifts above as a costly profile
A reputation one would like to be renown by
Hides in the surplus
Eyes wonder down streets
From balconies and cities and streams
From the sky above down to the caverns below
Eyes wonder for inspiration
Unbiased they look for an aphoristic saying
Dashing around the muck
Of worthless prejudice
Maturing in rhyme
Both sacrifice all throughout the chase
The poet finds within himself contentment
And so hes rested
And he speaks no more
But through his adjectives and expressions
By the construction of his typing
He sees until there is nothing that has faltered
And lays himself down to sleep
He puts his poem
His lifes works compacted as short says
Into criticism, he
Loosening the BurdensA glass mirror pane shattersLoosening the Burdens3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crystallized shards break
First spider-webbed then they escape
Bouncing onto the concrete and grass
Like raindrops, sharp as the keen eye
That watches them fall
Such is their confidence that has diminished
Once the bullet had hit it
I suppose one could assume
That a stand off would ensue
But in the aftermath there is only remorse
For the reflection that the glass once held
Now reflected individual raindrops
That iridescently made their way onto the glass
Wet and lucid as they break into atoms
Small particles engulfing the glass
Trying to be the glue
To mend the mirror back together
But one in all truth
Could never mend the picture that the
Mirror once held
For the object of which it reflected
Lied on the floor
In front of where the mirror had broke
Towards the outside
So that person wished to be outside
And unchained and remembered
And cast away from their depression
So as the sun came to claim the night
No shadow did come to move
But it la
