True LoveI didn't know love until I met you.
Nothing in my life had ever felt so true.
You were the reason I went day to day,
Washing all of my depression away.
I wish I could make everything all right,
Every second I think of that night.
The way you broke my heart with only few words.
Did more to me than being stabbed by a thousand swords.
I didn't know pain until I met you.
Even know, nothing has ever felt so true.
You used to be the reason I went day to day,
But now your make me wish I could fade away.

Just yesterday you were holding my hand,
Just yesterday you gave me a wedding band,
Just yesterday you said I do and,
Just yesterday you said you loved me too.
Just yesterday you told me you cared,
Just yesterday you told me about the love we shared,
Just yesterday you said you'd never leave and,
Just yesterday that was all I needed to believe.
Just yesterday you were near,
Just yesterday they told me something I did'nt want to hear,
Just yesterday they buried you deep and,
Just yesterday thoughts of you kept me from sleep.
Just yesterday I finally came to see you,
Just yesterday I missed you more than I usually do and,
Just yesterday I remembered again how much I need you.
Just yesterday has come and gone and,
Just yesterday is just a memory of all that went wrong.
Let Me DieLet me dieLet Me Die14 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Let me die,
It hurts to live,
Let me die,
My soul to give.
I want to die,
Give me rest,
I don't want to try,
Just a bullet in the chest.
Every acrid breath makes sweet death,
Like the gentle touch of a lovers caress.
Let me die,
I beg you please,
Pain and disease
Are only a tease.
Give me a place,
Where I can be free,
Where demons wont chase,
And torture me

not quite the same
not quite the same as before
before the papered golden ring
before the child from swaddling grew
before the hand of unheard aches
touched us here and here and here
we never knew
I swear to you, we never knew
(we live forever. don't we? nope.)
(does it get better? yup.)
falling leaves . spring renews . summer's sweat
I do digress
now is more
more than before
now we know the knowing
and the power in the word
knowing some mountains won't be climbed
knowing some oceans won't be crossed
knowing the awful wait does end
that patience is not the heavy load
knowing even this
...the rose's scent before the sniff
and this...oh, this, of greater import now
knowing the slightest grin
the unseen move
the imperceptible glint of eye
the elegant, the elegant
there you have it, boiled down
hopes and dreams, love and life
contained by the beginning
smooth assurance, abiding time

to what was
what might have been
and now I see
what was once unseen
left to dwell in emotions deep
what was reality
a lost fantasy
Sleep, Only to be woken
Run, Only to be caught
Scream, Only to be unheard
Escape to the darkness
Into the unknown
What was to be
No longer will
All is lost
In spite of me
To what was
What might have been
But now I see
What once was unseen
Sleep to be woken
Run to be caught
Scream to be unheard
Escape to the darkness
Into the unknown
Only to emerge in the light
To start again

I miss your kiss,
the tender touch of your lips
Your hand on mine
I miss holding you near me,
your warmth I desired
And all the nights we spend together
All the beautiful words,
you whispered into my ear
I've forgotten all the poems I wrote for you
Your eyes I miss,
your sweet smile I want to see again
And the love we once shared
But it's all gone now.
Nevermore I'll touch you,
nevermore I'll kiss your,
Nevermore I'll love you.
Plastic DollI mistakingly treated youPlastic Doll4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Like my own personal doll
And silently smiled
As I watched you fall
I know you are antiplastic
With a wonderful heart
But it never stopped me
From ripping it apart
As the rain fell from the sky
I drowned you in the puddles
I let everything you gave me
Get lost in all the struggles
But i didn't do it to hurt you
I'm just a selfish pig
I didn't mean to blind you
With all my evil tricks
I stabbed you in the back
Let you lay in your own blood
Completely tore you down
And treated you like mud
I broke your perfect spirit
And tainted your love
Smeared your honest name
Never held you up above
I used you as a stepping stone
To aid my own ascent
As I knocked you down
And left your body bent
I used your love
And left you dry
But even now
I don't know why...
Lead Me Somewhere BeautifulMy soul has left meLead Me Somewhere Beautiful5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It floats in a corner peering at me as I go through the motions of life
My body is merely a shell an illusion of normalcy
Numb to everything, I experience no pain, no guilt
With dilated eyes I see nothing clearly
The blur is soft and comforting
I am only capable of smiling and nodding
Inside I am empty of everything that was me.
The only escape from the pain was to leave myself
I push everyone away with cadaverous hands
I have conversations with echoes
A pale image greets me in the mirror
I've never been so numb
I've never been so cold
Don't bother asking if I'm okay
I'm not fully here, remember?
Maybe I'm crazy maybe I'm just lost
If you find me wandering, lead me somewhere beautiful

I'm pretty sure you've heard this before, but I love you. Your smile is adorable. You make me laugh when you don't even try. I love seeing you-it makes my day. I know people have told you how I feel before many, many, many times. I can't help but wonder what all of those comments make you think. I'm hoping you think I'm sweet, nice, caring. Not what others have said-creepy, freaky, disgusting. I try my hardest to impress you. I can't help but wonder what kind of impression I'm leaving on you. Is it good? Bad? Am I leaving any impression at all? Do you notice me? Am I ignored? Do you like me? Am I your friend? Do you love me? Question after question floats around in my mind. Wondering if my attempts are working. I try to make you smile like you do for me. I gave you my heart, and so far, you're keeping it safe and unbroken, repairing it when it's needed. You do a very good job of keeping it protected. I'm hoping that one day, maybe, someday, I'll be doing the same for you

But she is your one for right now.
She might not be the most perfect girl.
But you can't deny, she is perfectly imperfect.
She might fight with you and get mad.
But usually it's because she loves you.
She might actually think that she's fat ect.
But to you she's the most beautiful girl ever.
She might try your buttons, get you worked up.
But be patient because it's all worth it.
She might scream at you that you don't care.
But it's only because shes scared to lose you.
And you know what she might try to push you away;
But you love her just like that you wouldn't have it any other way.

Not being okay....To myself that is. To everyone else there clueless.Not being okay.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have actually admitted it to myself after trying to deny it.
And if it wasn't for the fact that I needed to know,
- my story.
- what I was hiding.
- Why I was lying to everyone.
- Why I was failing at telling myself I was okay.
...I'd be clueless too.
Don't you love it when you can hide it.
I can't stand people knowing i'm not okay.
It makes me feel weak and useless.
But it's taking over me, I can't deny it.
You don't realise it untill you can't deny it.
You don't know how bad it is untill it hits you.
Sure you have had it for awhile and you knew.
You couldn't take it, they can't help it.
But to them; to everyone it's all brand new.
Now they have to go and try to admit it like you did.
They sit there thinking where did they go wrong.
And then they have to deal with the loss.
It's a vicious cycle a complex set of events.
Let GoI used to be all aloneLet Go5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I sit next to the phone
As I hoped for you to change your mind
Or something would let me just rewind
Now I know there's nothing I can do
I've done my part, now it's all up to you
What else do you want from me?
I let you go, I set you free
This is how much love really costs
It hurt when you told me to get lost
This has become a cycle I cannot break
I'm a victim of love so fake
Maybe there will be a day
When the skies won't be so gray
Amidst the worst day of my worst days
I have found the truth in a painful daze
And when you finally look back to see
I will be gone, I will be free
Watch me leave, watch me go
I'm not the answer you want to know
My heart begins to beat so slow
Now is the time for me to go

No matter how hard I fight
These feelings get so strong.

So I can stop thinking about you.
Stop thinking about me
I'm falling and there's nothing else I can do.

bleed me dry,
save my life
or let me die.
The sun is setting,
the lights grow dim,
there's a wolf outside my door
and I want to let it in.
My heart's past broken
my mind is churning
my hopes are forgotten,
and my dreams are burning.
the air is growing thin,
I yearn to slow my pounding heart
the glass separates my skin.
Would you let me go?
Will you let me die?
Or shall I carry on this existence,
with only emptiness inside?

I am as inadequate
As I make myself.
I over think things.
Go from idea to idea.
But I am unique.
I care way too much.
I'm tied to many emotions.
I go up and down.
And trying to save the world,
In one day sometimes.
Never in one place.
I am like a shooting star.
Burning out quickly.
And I'll be the one,
That left them standing in awe,
Wishing on a star.

We were hand in hand,
Both with each other in mind,
You were slowly taking possession of my heart,
Taking over my brain.
I was paralyzed with you on my mind.
Stuck in a world revolving around you.
You were getting too big for my heart,
For my brain.
I felt like I was going to explode.
I was suffocating;
This was too much;
I had to get out.
I woke up;
I had a dream.

so much meaning.
For the longest time
I knew it was true.
I knew I loved you,
but I couldn't say it
at least not to you.
I could write it.
I could say it to anyone else.
As you eventually found out
and half mocked me,
with a Rascal Flatts quote
"The words I couldn't say"
I'd never expected to hear
the words from you.
As soon as I heard
those beautiful words from your lips
I knew I'd never
be able to walk away.
Now the "words I couldn't say"
have become the words
I can't stop saying.
And I want you home
so I can poke you awake,
just so I can tell you
I love you.
Love's One ChanceI believe that love comes once in a life and only thatLove's One Chance5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We are all given that one chance with one rule, use it wisely
I used it on you
I fell for you, obsessed over you,
I lived and breathed you
But my chance was wasted on a person I loved
But who did not love me in return
Now I live, my chance wasted,
with a hallow, empty, shell of a heart
You have torn me apart
For my heart only has love for you,
There is no room for second best
So now I live in the solitude of my existence
Hearing only my heartbeat,
Seeing only the darkness around me,
And feeling only the pain of you inside me
This is something I can't escape
For there is no way out from love's
Torturous, unyielding grasp

That seems so pleasently formed,
To mention of my bountiful beauty,
Like it was some solemn duty
Of yours to remind me,
To blind me,
With a spell of sweet sounding words,
This girl does not often hear
But yours are hollow and meant to bind,
So your empty truth I could not find,
How many others heard those words before me?
And took them in like I did?
How many others fell victim to false charm,
That caused my heart such harm?
Those tears that fell from your face,
You are a demented disgrace,
To tell sweet lies to innocent girls,
And pray they never discover
Your real cause of such obsessive love,
That would strike a pin into the heart of a dove,
That sensitive facade you bore at first,
Oh where did it disappear too
Once your patience had worn so thin,
Out came the secret that what you longed for was sin,
My naivity was your prey,
My innocence you began to seek, to slay,
The gentleman subsided,
The sweetheart I knew vanished,
Hollow words breaking aga
