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.

Where Did You Go?You were my friend.Where Did You Go?5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You helped me through rough times.
You were my rock.
You were my best friend.
Once upon a time, we were inseparable.
It was always the two of us.
We taught each other many things.
You promised we would be best friends forever.
Then we went our separate ways.
It was just different schools.
I thought we would still stay friends.
Now we go to the same school again.
But everything is so different.
You aren't the person I once knew.
Where did you go?
No longer can we laugh together.
You are someone I don't know.
You seem so unhappy.
How can I save you from the void you seem to be falling in?
I'm worried for you.
Only sometimes do I catch a glimpse of the old you.
The real you.
So where did you go?
WinterWinter has a quivering beauty.Winter4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Paper skinned and wispy,
She sees easily beyond
Our best efforts to disguise.
Her breath runs tender rivers,
Beneath the costumes of rigid layered cloth,
Around the naked curves of our fragile frames.
The snow her gentle kisses
She litters lovingcareless
Across our ruined landscapes,
Only to disappear as soon as she's come.
We are left markless and bereft,
Silent sensation all that reminds
Of our beloved martyr.
Fake DemocracyI can't live in a worldFake Democracy5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where dreams grow old
And memories are sold
I don't care what they say
I don't care what I'm told
This place you call America is a joke
A lie thicker than smoke
It gets so thick I can't breath
Don't tell me that I'm wrong
Because I really don't care
Everywhere I look
Two names, Two parties
And you try to tell me
That our elections are free and fair?
It seems I can't look anywhere
Tax breaks for the wealthy
Soldiers for the war
Scandal on the news
Money, money, more
What ever happened to the Great Society?
Help for the poor?
When did this become the homeless man's fight?
Since when was the working class a blight?
Welcome to America
Land of the Gross
Home of the faithless
In the end, I suppose
I'm just one of the lost
A moth to the flame
Someone to blame
A man with no name
You sicken me.
Our MelodyI've never been oneOur Melody4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a love song,
but it sure feels like
we've been writing one
So give me a minute,
to rehearse my lyrics;
(because we only have
a bit of time before
you say goodbye.)
As I pour out words
of love and wisdom;
won't you look me
in the eyes
before I cry.
Because you may not
but the way that you
makes me feel
like we're doing alright.
So give me a chance,
grant me one last dance,
maybe this love song
will find you and I;
Singing the melody

You make me who I am.
You've shaped me
And changed me into the person I am today,
Although not necessarily in a bad way.
So after all this,
Please promise you won't foget me.
I know I won't forget you.
I DO BECAUSE...I stand on my own two feetI DO BECAUSE...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
because I've learned that I can.
I've learned that there's strength within me
to stand whether I have support or not.
I pick myself up
because I've learned that it's okay to fall.
We may scrape our palms and knees,
but that doesn't make us weak,
it adds to our character.
I forgive myself
because I've learned that to continuously feel guilty
about something that cannot be changed
only keeps me miserable.
And to keep myself in misery is to not live at all.
I let myself be happy
because I've learned that we all deserve happiness
even if we have convinced ourselves that we don't.
It's not about waiting for happiness to embrace you
but about you embracing happiness
since no matter how much we yearn for it
we will never attain it unless we let ourselves.
I move forward
because I've learned that standing still
only leads to stagnation
and in stagnation there can be no progression.
I think of life
because I've learned that it's better to live life
than to fight it.

Platonic LoveHave you ever just loved being around someone?Platonic Love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Talking to them - able to talk about anything
Always wanting to be with them
But not needing their body
Just small touches
Being satisfied by a simple but meaningful hug
A small kiss on the forehead
All you need is to be
To lay there in each others arms
feeling happy and warm - safe
needing nothing more
Or a soft kiss on the forehead
It's so much simpler than a kiss on the lips
Yet it says so much more
It says I love you and need nothing more
Do or DieCome on now, just take your chanceDo or Die5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's time for you and me to dance
We don't have time to think or try
Because right now, it's do or die!
Our lives are on the line
Moving so fast that others are blind
You've got one chance to try to fly
C'mon now, it's do or die!
My fangs are bared
So, you'd better be prepared
To slow me with your sweet, sweet lies
Because, my dear, it's do or die!
Forget, for a moment what went wrong
Let's act like we can get along
For in a moment, you can't deny
We'll go back to do or die.
Come on now, just take your chance
This is our great romance
Don't think about where the consequences lie
Remember, love, it's do or die.

Like a clockwork screw...
The words don't work,
But neither should you.
Confused and silent,
In the winters content...
Words are no flag to sail.
'Not these' the people cry.
What people am I?
Black blotched from blinkered eye...
Wake up in the morning,
See the fool come by.
I, you, see my thoughts,
The enter, come, gone to me...
In paper I appoint thee,
A disappointing memory.
My eyes are shut, I cannot know,
The lines are twisted and overgrown,
Each word is larger...
Continuous thought in re warmonger.
Just shut up.
I want the last word.
So have it.

i wish we were more than friends, more than a dream but....
only You can make it real.

Where all you want
Is to know someone
For you and what you want to say
For your mannerisms and how you behave
For your thoughts and mistakes
For what you try to be and actually are
For your flaws and beauties
And if there is someone
Who will show you that
They are a magical person
And should be held onto
But if they run from being held
They didnt really care
And if they smile and hold back
then love them
For all you're worth
And care for them the same
Friends can be friends without real friendship
and lovers and be lovers with out true love
but caring can't be acheived without care

Dreams so beautiful I want to stay asleep.
Dreams so full of Joy that once I wake up, sorrow is all I feel.
Dreams so real that I doubt of it being a dream.... Just a dream!
Dreams so awesome! and mean at the same time...
I want to go back to sleep.
I want to dream with it again.
and if I do!
I want to stay asleep!
So many beautiful things I've lost.
So many great scenes I didn't see.
So many pictures I didn't take.
By staying awake!
Why can't I dream with it again?!
Why can't I stay asleep?!
Reality is ugly!
Reality is villainous!
I want to go back to sleep!
I want to stay asleep!
I want to dream;
Those beautiful dreams with you;
Why can't I?!

Yes, you.I've been waiting for you,Yes, you.5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The one who can take some and pitch some back,
With a sense of humor to match mine,
And willing to playfully argue.
The one brave enough to speak his mind,
Not afraid of emotion, including his own,
And an ability to be sensitive, too.
The one intelligent enough to contribute,
To keep the conversation alive,
And with goals he wishes to pursue.
The one with the charmingly crooked smile,
The intently observing eyes,
And welcoming arms to climb into.
The one patient enough to put up with me,
To love me even at my worst,
Because I would do the same for you.
I've been waiting.
I Am Not LostA crushing weight? No, that's not what it feels like.I Am Not Lost5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
More like a burning somewhere deep inside your soul. One that you can't reach, can't touch no matter how hard you try.
And I've tried. Oh how I've tried to touch that flame
But then I stop trying. Because what nobody tells you, is that it's not even there. It's the greatest trick the universe ever pulled. And I fall for it every time.
By the time I remember it's all a lie, I've already tore my heart apart trying to get there.
At least when I feel it, even if I can't touch it, it reminds me I do have a soul.
I am not lost.

You know who you are, I think. But you'll probably never read this, either. You never really did like to read what I wrote. (You told me that it reminded you of your heart). It's a pity, because you have the heart of a poet and the soul of a dancer and I'd never ask you to change but then you did. For her. You changed into someone so completely different, and you know what? So did I. I regret becoming so much like you. [You lied to me, starboy].
ii. His eyes
Yeah, it sounds soooo generic, doesn't it? but this isn't that cliche "love story", nope. His eyes, my memory of when he looked at me and said something I'll never ever forget... "Why?". He was so confused. He was so sad, and it showed so clearly in those beautiful eyes of his... Well, I couldn't answer the question. I couldn't bear watching him shut his eyes in frustration like he always does. So I closed mine.
Just stop. Stop moving.
