SleeplessI should very well be asleep by nowSleepless2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But the thoughts that hold my being captive are only of you
Your soft skin
Smelling so sweet
The clothes I still have hidden in my room
Have that same, faint, scent.
I close my eyes and feel your breath on my neck again
Feel you kissing me
Making me feel things my sleeping soul hadn't felt in so long
I feel your soft lips crash into mine
Clumsy in their endeavor to explore
Every part of me.
They took some part of me with them
In that last,
I can't sleep knowing that you're no longer mine
Maybe you were never mine to begin with
About a GirlAll I ever did was love you,About a Girl10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
All I ever did was try to see you happy,
All I ever did was care for you,
But you took my sincerity as a lie,
You passed me off as a monster,
Only wanting a cheap fuck,
And being drugged out the rest of the time,
And you know what,
I still yearn for you
I wish to give you my love and my time
You have a hard time feeling safe
You ask what if I hurt you
And I give you a promise that I won’t
You say promises break,
But this one shall not be broken
Believe me when I say,
That all I want is to call you mine,
And to say I love you
Dying By Your AssumptionYour assumptions causes me to shake, to become another,Dying By Your Assumption4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The confused son, friend and swaying brother,
Scars live with shadows; don't turn off the light,
Monsters blur ethics and call it right,
I don't speak much at school,
Confused by each contradicting rule,
Teachers and other students stand in front of me,
Despite this, a source of help I fail to see,
Kicking a football in a distant park,
Alone with my father, not enough of a spark,
I pray to a god I can't believe in,
Wanting him to take a family sin,
I turn away from each policeman,
Strings do more then control each hand,
They influence patterns, something strange,
Love, my parents have to share,
Different methods to ensure I know they are there,
Your assumptions causes me to shake, to become another,
My father didn't rape me, it was my mother.
Mere DesiresI am sitting in the darkMere Desires2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one I loved throws my things about the room
She is angered
She packs and yells
She tells me that I am a cheater
I am no cheater
I am merely a pawn to my desires
I see no wrong in my actions
Just being honest to myself
Honest to my urges
It would be wrong to fight them
Wrong to ignore myself
I am sitting in the dark
Illuminated only by the headlights
The one that hates me has gone from here
She is wrong to hinder
I am myself
This is her fault after all
She was not more available
She called me an animal
She asked why I did it
It's just that
We are animals
My instincts drove me to it
Wrong to call me wrong
She was wrong
Learn to live with that

CutThe razor that cuts my skinCut4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The blood that falls into a silver tin
When i feel the pain
The whole world seems sane
The blood that paints a gruesome picture
The razor my pen
My blood the ink
The paper my soul
Nobody must see this bloody scene
My wrists sliced open
The blood never ceases to stop seeping out of the wound
It will never stop
For i will never die
After all in my writing, i am immortal
He Lied - She BelievedFooling her was so easyHe Lied - She Believed4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
She fell for it so fast
I knew she was so in love
Too bad it wouldn't last
My heart ached when he was close
I felt my heart pick up speed
His love was like a drug
Having him close was my greatest need
I told her she was the only one
That she was the love of my life
And one day I'd buy a ring
And make her my lover and wife
I trusted and believed
I let him hold onto my heart
I knew he would keep it safe
I knew he wouldn't tear it apart
But she didn't know who I was
She didn't know all the other girls I had
Maybe she would never find out
But maybe she'll find out I was actually bad
They told me he was a player
That he'd play with my mind
But I couldn't believe them
He was the one I had once set out to find
I knew how in love she was
I could crush her heart with my bare palm
I didn't reply when she confessed her feelings
I tried to remain calm
I joyously told him he was my world
I'd do anything he'd ask me to do
I held him and cried tears of happiness
But then I did

What is love
but that in hich is shown of the wind that carasses your face
What can it be

What is it
but the brillince of the Earth as it celebrates that you live
Yes, this must be love.
This must be but that which I feel for you.
This happiness that I feel because of you, that must what it truely is.
Oh, how I long for your love.
And, oh, how dear I hold every second spent with you.

For, surely, you never cease to be in my mind, a sweet, gentle smile upon your face.
So, without a doubt, every second you breath, every second that I continue to live, I celebrate.
For you, I love.
For you, I live.
For you, I smile, laugh.
No entity on this plane can stop my everlasting and eternal love for you.
And if I found your heartAnd if I found your lost heartAnd if I found your heart4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
That escaped and flew away
Safe from every piercing shard
That has left and went astray
Would that make you love me?
And if I found your young love
That was kept hidden for all
As innocent as a dove
That is new-born and small
Would that make you want me?
And if I found your desire
That has been asleep so long
When other needs were higher
That wants to make you strong
Would that make you dream again?
And If I found your dreams
That slept a winters' sleep
Not awoken by my screams
That were once thoughtful and deep
Would that make you heal yourself?
And if you loved me
And if you wanted me
And if you dreamed me
And if you healed yourself
Would there still be anything
You wanted to do redo?
(I love you)
AloneAs flowers die around meAlone4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And the ice starts to cover the grass
I stand by myself cold and alone
Waiting for this feeling to once again pass
Waiting by myself
All alone physically and at heart
While the rest of the world keeps moving
And I just stand apart
Cold and numb to the bone
Both my skin and my emotion
With this blade in my hand again
Possibly my final notion
my storyWhen I look at you all I see is shame. I see myself ,my story4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
classed and judged as the whore the street walker, all because I believed in love,
I look at you and I see mistrust.
and you know what? why does it matter what happened back then?
Today is now and yesterday is gone, I can't change what happened and neither
can you ,with snide looks or whispered disappointment.
Maybe that's why I can't tell you,
I can't ever tell just how I feel
Being with her is the most natural thing in the world,
It feels right and perfect, different from what
I felt for him , better maybe even.
telling you would give you another reason to look on me with disgust
give you another reason to tell people I'm a handful
another reason to say why I'm not good enough.
Being perfect is all you care about and it just isn't
I'm no wonder woman or She-Ra and I wont ever be.
I need you to learn to accept me for me.
I am your daughter, I don't believe, I am bisexual and proud to be me.
She Wrote, He SangOnce there was a girl who wrote poems instead of sleeping and sheShe Wrote, He Sang4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Loved a boy who sang when he didn't know she listened
She wrote, "Dear boy, I love you"
And he sang, "Dear girl, I cannot love you back"
This answer did not satisfy and did not deter her
So she waited more and wrote less
For three months she waited with pen poised above paper
Her mind too full of him to bring her hand to write
Then she wrote, "Dear boy, I loved you enough to wait"
And he sang, "Dear girl, I am glad you waited"
The boy started singing sweetly in her ear
The girl wrote no more so that she could listen instead
With nothing but ecstasy in the corners of her heart
Her pen lay dormant for many a month
Then he sang, "Dear girl, I am going to leave you"
And she wrote, "Dear boy, I don't wish you to go"
But the boy could not be contained by the look in the girl's eye
And he ran while she chose to walk behind
While he ran, he unknowingly injected power into her pen
And sucked out the love-drenched words tha
Concert love storyThey met in a crowded room, on a day so cold the memory of it makes them shiver.Concert love story4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
They met at a concert. With the music blaring and pulsing through their viens.
She came alone. He came alone. To let the band free them.
Seventeen years he'd been alone, sixteen for her.
Now a hundred more they will never again be that way.
The crowd got wild, jumping, shouting, singing out their hearts.
She was small, thin and shy, no match for such enthusiasm.
Except one boy, in a black hoddie.
He reached down and touched her hand, pulling her safely to him.
Safe. For the first time in forever, thats how she felt.
Swaying to the music curled into a strangers chest, she felt whole.
As he held her there, she seemed to fit, right into that hole in him.
In his heart, in his soul, in his life.
After hours the roar of the crowd dies, and the fans leave.
The two stay still.
He whispers as the drums are moved from the stage.
"i love you. tell me your name?"
Up on tip toes her lips touch
Lie To MeThe banging on my front door awakened me from my heavy sleep. And all I could think was, who the hell is at my door at 11:30 at night?Lie To Me4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I wearily pushed out of the bed and went to my front door, dragging my legs and resisting the urge to dive back in bed, so I could go back to sleep. I unlocked the door and swung it open, ready to curse out the one who woke me up from my needed sleep. But my face instantly softened when I saw her. My baby, my cute girlfriend, my loyal lover.
But she didn't look so happy.
Her hand lashed out and my head jerked to the side at the force of her slap. I stumbled back as she put her hand on my chest and shoved. My door slammed shut and pain thundered through my body as she pounded her tightly clenched fists against my chest.
"You lied! You said you loved me! You said I was enough and you'd change! But you lied even after I gave myself to you!" she screamed, but her voice kept cracking as the sobs started.
I looked down at her, my arms lim
Seasons of PainSeasons of PainSeasons of Pain4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Rain, rain, go away.
Come again, some other day.
There she sits under the rain,
Crying away all her heart's hurt and pain.
Leaves, leaves, blow away.
Stop tormenting her this way.
There she waits under the wilting trees,
Now all she wants is to scream and be free.
Snow, snow, go away.
Come again some other day.
There she lies on the cold ground,
The pain hasn't lifted its still going around.
Sun, sun, shine today.
Make her smile again someday.
There she is smiling, it's the greatest gift,
She got tired of waiting for her pain to lift.
Away with her pain, away with her sorrow.
No more crying, not today
She Bleeds LeadLead poisoned her mind from bombs constantly waging war inside her head.She Bleeds Lead4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She asked me to count the cracks that were bleeding lead.
I had to look away.
I couldn't watch it corrode the softest parts of her skin.
What happens to porcelain eyes when they begin to weep tears of glass?
(Is it clear enough to see through, or are they too stained?)
With ribs like windows, I could see the mutilated victim of a war with no promises of ending.
Each beat a repressed scream begging to remember what its like to feel.
Before she can answer her heart's relentless cries, another bomb explodes,
Leaving her to count the cracks in her sanity.
Morosely she reminds herself that she's doing herself a favor as her lungs compress her air in disagreement.
(That's alright she's already forgotten how to breathe.)
As I lick the lead dripping from her wounds, I try to trick myself into thinking its not poisonous
Although I could taste her faith in me retreat, convinced that I'm poisoning her.
