NightmaresI don't want to fall asleepNightmares3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can't bare to close my eyes
I can't stand what's inside my head
Be it made of truth or lies
'Cause when I fall asleep
The nightmares take place
The worst things I can imagine
Scarier than any screaming face
In my dreams
I see you there
But you're hurting me on purpose
And you don't seem to care
I see you with other girls
And you look so happy
And I'm stood there screaming
Telling you it should be me
But you're not listening
You're too busy having fun
I can't get away from what I'm seeing
No matter how much I try to run
I'm seeing you with girlfriends
I've never even heard of
Telling them they're beautiful
As I start to sob
Then I wake up in the dark
And I'm lying here alone
With no one here to comfort me
Just me on my own
You may think the worst part is over
But it's only just begun
'Cause when I go back to sleep
I know I'll have another one
Nightmares that leave me crying
When I wake up in bed
Wishing every night
That they would stay out my head
But I kno
Unexplainable feelingThis cryptic feeling that I’m feeling insideUnexplainable feeling2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don’t know its meaning but it has caught my eyes
I’ve only felt it once, but it’s been made very clear
That since the first time I met you I’ve hold you dear
And it’s so vivid; it’s strange but also great
It’s close to unexplainable, and gentle as a dove
But only few, barely anyone could relate
That the best of her is that she showed me love
The Truth of InsideLook at me,The Truth of Inside3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tell me what you see
What you see with your eyes
What is deep in your mind?
I'll stay in my disguise
You're not looking at the real guy
The real guy is hiding inside
Talk to me and you'll regret all the lies
Stop judging from a distance
Come close so we can be friends
But truthfully, because hypocrisy will make us enemies
Then I'll start thinking you're a fiend
If we understand and accept each other
We can become closer, even like brothers
Until then, go to your good friends
Even though I'm the real friend you could have gained
Discarded.You cry for your sorrows and you bleed for your dreams,Discarded.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Just always remember, this world is not what it seems.
You can be the best of friends and then disappear,
They'll just discard you, I know it's hard to hear.
But this has happened enough to me,
It's all everyone's been doing recently.
So here I lie, discarded, fearing to stand up,
Because what waits just isn't worth getting up.
Thrown away and lying in a puddle of mud and blood,
All the other times I got up, and wiped off the mud.
But this time, as I lie here, broken and bloody,
I don't want to get up, I want to be a dead body.
I know getting up is inevitable, because I will never give in,
But I really just want to give up and say that "I'm done in."
Humble Mediocrity.I see the truth in your web of lies,Humble Mediocrity.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's hard to see when you use your eyes.
Problem is, I'm a liar too.
I knew exactly where to look for you.
You're living one of your lies,
As you watch through the eyes,
Of humble mediocrity.
I'm here because someone has heard your plea.
You look at me and you scream for help,
Whilst saying nothing at all and not wanting to tell.
But that's not why I came,
I'm here because of what I became.
I came because I know what you can do,
Because I was once someone just like you.
I was once like you, living a lie.
Which is why I'm here - to silence your cry.
I came because you are a danger to me,
As you watch through your humble mediocrity.
Takes one to know one and I like my privacy,
So please forgive me because I am sorry.
As I look into your dead eyes,
With the potential to see through my lies.
I killed you for you saw my grand life as it really is
- Humble Mediocrity.
My Dedicated LoveYou are so angelic, and so uniqueMy Dedicated Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can't believe that you even talk to me
Cause all you're qualities makes you so radiant
It would feel like I was speaking to an angel
This sounds really corny or cliché,
But is the truth what I speak
You're my inspiration for writing these poems
You're in my mind every time I grab my pencil
And every love poem I make is dedicated to you
There's only one word that explains what I feel
Is a feeling that seems insane but its real
A feeling that I have deep inside of my heart
And that feeling is called "love"

You know my name
But that one's easy
How about my birthday?
Or is that too cheesy?
Do you know age?
It’s been a few years
My favorite color?
Or my worst fears?
Do you know my height?
The color of my eyes?
Do you remember my face?
The one you despise
Do you know my favorite food?
The size that I wear?
My favorite music?
Or the color of my hair?
Do you remember my freckles?
Or the sound of my voice?
How about my favorite movie?
Or my song of choice?
Do you know my goals?
My hopes and dreams?
What I wish to become?
My favorite teams?
Do you know my personality?
How I’m always smiling
How I used to have hope in you
Your words so beguiling
Do you know my hobbies?
What I enjoy
Running, drawing, writing
Still such a tomboy
Do you know I write poems?
Or that they’re all about you?
The pain deep in my heart
Each tear caught by a tissue
Do you know I suffer?
Each minute of each day,
Knowing I couldn't see you,
Knowing you'd never stay?
Your FatherYour Father-Your Father3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
You scream at your dad
He’s too over bearing
What you don’t see
Is that’s his way of caring
He’s always in your business
And calls you when you’re gone
Making sure you’re safe
Wanting to know what's going on
He gives you no privacy
And just doesn’t understand
What you want to do and say
“Stop holding my hand!”
He looks at you like a child
When really you’ve all grown up
You bicker back and forth
Yelling at him to shut up
He doesn’t always listen
Or buys you what you want
Embarrassing you in public
The way he constantly taunts
He scares away your boyfriends
And gives you a hard time
Laughing if off like it’s nothing
But to you it’s a horrendous crime
He’s just a bit over weight
And has a bit of a gut
He’s always getting on to you
To wear shorts that cover your butt
But you are his everything
His world and his heart

alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.

the going gets tough,
sometimes saying sorry,
just isn't enough.
sometimes you have to move forward 12,
sometimes move backward 4,
sometimes you split between a 7,
just to even the score.
there's times the you're sent back to start,
and times your up ahead,
sometimes people say things,
that cause tears to be shed.
there are certain times you lose,
and other times you win,
whether red, blue, green, or yellow,
no matter the color of your skin.
EmilieEmilie sits upon the shelfEmilie3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A pretty doll in a shop
She sits and waits for her time to come
Until her loneliness stops
She waits and waits, full of false hope
That someone will come take her home
But when all the other dolls have been bought
She wonders why she's still alone
She spends her time thinking about
Her imaginary faults
Assuming that she's ugly because
Why else has she not been sold?
And to this day, she's wanted to say
Why am I the only doll that's still here?
She's fed up of loneliness, fed up of waiting
For something she once had that disappeared
Emilie sits upon the shelf
A pretty doll in a shop
She sits and waits for her time to come
But her loneliness never stops
She's so fed up that she's stopped trying
To be the perfect one
Because deep down she already knows
Her perfect one has been and gone

This is the old tale we all know so well,
The proof lies here in the tale I am about to tell.
There was once a beautiful, smart and rich woman,
She was powerful and seemingly had everything.
Yet, although she had all this, she was miserable,
It's a sad truth, but then again, it's a sad tale.
She lost someone, it hurt her badly, it made her sad,
She'll be fine, but it hurts... She could be going mad.
But no, it was normal to hurt after such a loss,
There was a man to look after her, whatever the cost.
She was a proud, beautiful, smart and rich woman,
She was powerful and seemingly had everything.
But on the inside, her heart was hurting,
The reason why this tale is so saddening.
She was rich, she was powerful, she had everything,
Yet she was about to break, just like anyone or anything.
I Still Hear YouI stand still in the rainI Still Hear You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trying to wash away the pain
It falls harder on my head
I wish it hadn't been said
The sound pounds in my ears
The raindrops hide my salty tears
The thunder silences my cries
My heart breaks from your lies
The sky does cry for me
It shares my agony
The earth shakes from the sound
As my knees hit the ground
Why'd you lie to me?
I thought it was meant to be
Then you say i'm not the one
That it was over,we were done
You'd asked me for my hand
Said you have such big plans
We'd even set the date
In spring,but not too late
My eyes water from fresh tears
I'd wasted three whole years
Planning to marry you
Then you left for someone new
As i lay here on the ground
I still can hear the sound
Of you walking out that door
Leaving me here forevermore
