The way you walk this town at night! As if
You expect the stars to swoon and drop down;
The moon to relinquish his crown and praise
You for outshining the day.
I admire the way you never frown at defeat,
Because realistically, you're no more
The Queen than you are the clown. Though,
As you are, you'd make the latter proud.
I'll make the call to
Sound the sirens. Loud.
We've got another casualty,
Trampled by her crowd.
You tragic little thing,
How do you like me now?
Social AnxietyShe thought he was beautiful.Social Anxiety4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He thought she was perfect.
She scrutinised herself when he was with other girls;
She was the only one he saw.
He was the last thing on her mind at night.
He woke with an image of her smile.
He would listen out for her in crowds.
She would strain to hear his name.
He could never draw his eyes away;
She could never look.
He would share his umbrella to keep her from getting wet-
She always hoped for rain.
He once wrote her a letter to express his admiration.
She couldn't read his writing.
She promised herself that she would tell him.
He decided it was time to come clean.
She would hide her face when he came near,
And he would brush her hair back for her.
He would study the soft oval of her countenance
And she would lift her chin and look into his eyes.
And he would smile
And all barriers would fall between them
And all doubt would evaporate for one single, perfect moment.
And he would know she loved him.
And she would know he was hers.

0 had found this new green colored doll and he had become good friends to the new parents. Though some had come across him as bitter and cold, the brown-haired female had seen the good in him and the two became quick friends. 4 thought it was because their numbers were so close, but that was just the start of it. 21 had already known another 22, this new female one reminding him a bit of his previous friend.
As the two were preparing he asked an obvious question, "Why are you two leaving again?" Suddenly he felt a bit rude and cleared his throat, "I mean not that I mind watching the little angel but I'm just a tad bit curious."

She was beautiful
Just one flaw
You fell in love with her
She had deep blue eyes
That you would stare into all night
She was fun,
She was everything you ever wanted
I loved her too
But in a different light then you did
She was like my best friend
She made me feel alright
I had to go, momentarily
But when I was gone, tragedy struck
Leaving you half-hearted
I felt bad for you
But mostly happy
Maybe now, I could have you
Just one flaw

& rest in peace for just a while
Your comfort & happiness is what I seek
A contented heart, a smile on your cheek
My life has purpose and meaning
When you tell me I am responsible,
For the joy you are feeling
I live for the chance to make your day
Benevolence is the adrenaline I desperately crave
Nothing makes me feel more alive,
than to fill joy in a heart once deprived
I'm happy I could make you smile

There's something tangibly, achingly desperate about you. Your words, your smile, your vivid dreaming that causes you to insist that I'm only another part of your imagination... that is, until the icy-sharp air bursts into your face and you remember your name, my name, the color of words. The truth. It's a little bit difficult to convince you that you're wrong nearly all of the time, that your reasoning is insanely driven by the misfiring neurons in your puzzle-broken brain that's malfuctioning half of the time and lost the other half of the day.
Nobody has ever come even halfway-close to figuring you out. [Nobody ever will].
Your imperfection is what makes everybody at once draw back and fall for you. Except. Except you don't really know that. You're much too distracted in your attempts to think in straight lines and make sense of the bewilderingly crazy world [you] we live in. You're much too absorbed i

There not always going to be around
They're going to make you cry
And they're going to lie
People will always leave
I know its something you don't want to believe
But that's just the truth about forever
You cant let your dream go
Just because people tell you no
You cant give up and runaway
Or pretend that every things okay
Because your gonna get hurt
People will treat you like dirt
That's just the truth about forever
Forever is how you want it to be
Its what you want to see
We make our own futures
And we decide what occurs
Your going to feel pain
You might even go Insane
But in the end it'll be okay
Listen to the words i say
Because im just telling you

You are so beautiful.
Everything about you is amazing.
But now what?
How do we proceed through this journey,
This moment of decision making,
That has reached this stand-still crossroad?
Do we take the left path?
And simply tell ourselves that it was all a dream,
Dismissing everything that was said,
Everything that has happened,
And go our separate ways,
Just as friends?
Or do we take the right path?
Confessing everything to each-other?
Pouring our hearts out like a never-ending river?
I may not how you feel towards me,
But I can say with complete and utter confidence,
That it doesn't matter.
How ever you feel
I will respect,
I could never be mad, or angry with you.
I could never judge you, or hold a grudge.
It may be that I don't know you enough to care about such trivial things,
Or maybe I know you all too well.
Well enough to know how sweet and amazing you actually are?
But I know this,
That without you here with me,
I am nothing

Who ever felt worthless,
Used or abused.
I'd like to say, things get better,
But like all things, it takes time.
And these words, they won't help,
I'd tell you to stop;
To listen to your mother,
Cause I know, she's usually right.
I'd tell you to sleep,
And that laughter is the best medicine,
That no one could ever replace you.
I'd say that no matter how tough things are,
They always do, get better
Sometimes, you have to jump,
And hope you don't fall,
And if you do?
Get up there and jump again.
Nothing was ever accomplished,
By giving up.
Your mind set and your attitude,
Are the only things in the way of your success.
But I know these words won't help,
So I say this,
(In the hope that one soul may read and feel, better. )
Don't be afraid of who you are,
Or what you are not.
Value your own opinion above all others,
Most of all smile
'cause no matter what anyone else says,
That smile, is beautiful.

Letting go is probably the hardest thing I have ever done.
Letting go of the one person whom you hold so dear, feels like death itself.
It's not pretty.
If anything it sounds pathetic coming from a someone who doesn't believe in love.
It's not that I didn't believe in love.
It's just that I kept well away from it because I know it hurts.
I am not a glutton for punishment.
I am not a masochist.
I do not gain any pleasure from pain.
Did it make me a masochist, a glutton for punishment, a lover of pain?
Did loving you did that?
Then I guess in the end I am only a hypocrite.
I knew it would be over sooner than I expected.
I knew I should have stopped myself from letting it go deeper.
I knew it.
I did nothing to stop it.
Which is why I don't blame you.

How Much You MeantJanuary 18th, 2010. The day I fell in love with the one boy who meant the world to me. I guess you can say that I've been in "like" too many times to count, but this time. It was different. Every time I "liked" someone else, it was purely out of the want to be loved. This time, even though our six or so months together have been nothing but the best and worst periods of time in my life, I still find myself to love him. For some reason, I believed that he hated me, but strangely, we grew close after just a little while. One smile, captured my attention. One hug, captured my soul. One kindness, captured my heart. Overall, He was definitely not your typical high school freshman. He doesn't talk about sex all the time. He doesn't want to lose his first kiss to someone he didn't love. He doesn't want to cause you pain. He wasn't a clear stereotype for a high school male. The crazy part is, I never felt this in my life.

A physical embrace.
A goodnight kiss.
All these things
we often use
to describe love.
But Love is something
that is much too powerful
to be able to describe
justly and accurately.
You won't know
what Love truly is

It is an experience,

My Obsession - Unrequited LoveThis morning I thought to say I love youMy Obsession - Unrequited Love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I knew just what you'd do
You'll turn your back and walk away
Just like you always do
This morning I thought to say you're beautiful -
Shiny hair like exquisite lace
But you'll just turn your head and laugh away
Mockery twisting your pretty face
This morning I thought to say how seeing you
Is a pleasure to my eyes
And how I could never think of living my life
Without you by my side
But when I think of you telling me
That we could never be more than friends,
I close my eyes and seal my lips,
Knowing that I should just be content
Day after day, night after night
I fight a valiant fight
Against the forces inside this foolish heart
That say we should never part
I dream of you
I crave for you
My very essence desires you
But I know that it's wrong to do what I do
So I remain a quiet fool
I never tell the longing of my soul
Or how your departure leaves a hole
For best friends shouldn't feel the way that I do
Longing for, needing, craving and wantin
CandyPeople are a lot like candy.Candy4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If you're too sweet, things around you rot away.
If you're too sour, people talk badly about you, and keep their distance.
If you're too tough, most people won't bother wasting their time with you.
If you're too soft, you'll develop a reputation for being weak.
Not enough flavor, and people will pass you by for something more savory.
Too much flavor, and you'll be ostracized for being too much to handle.
But, just like candy, people come in all flavors, colors, and personalities.
No matter how many people hate you for things out of your control, for just being you, there will always be at least one person out there who loves you exactly as you are.
JealousyOntario marched up the pathway to Quebec's house with a disgruntled look on his face. His hands were stuffed into his pockets and he was hunched over slightly. Montreal really was a windy place to live in. Of course, his thoughts were just as blown apart as the wind hitting him. Nova Scotia couldn't have been serious, could he? He had probably just mistaken it for someone else and Ontario was being silly. Yes, that had to be it. He was sure of it.Jealousy4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But then why was he in such a rush to go and check on his French neighbor?
Growling to himself in irritation, Ontario jogged the rest of the pathway and up the house's stairs. He paused at the door for just a brief second, debating on whether or not he should knock, before just throwing the door open and walking inside. "Hey, Quebec! I was wondering-"
Ontario trailed off abruptly, staring back at the two pairs of eyes that stared back at him. Of course, Quebec was the first to get over his mild surprise. "What the hell are you doing here, mau
