Outcast 2I am an outcastOutcast 24 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An empty face
A mouth sown shut
Eyes nothing but keyholes
Sorrounded by rotting flower pedals dancing the breeze like so many a winking star
All the blank faces around me
They just pass by, without a second glance
They look at me and see a freak, a wierdo, a monster
None of them know the pain inside
The bloody chains that bind me
The love that strangles me
They see none of this
They only see an outcast
FreezeIt is so coldFreeze4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To the reaper my soul has been sold
For without you I am nothing
Just crushed flower pedals in the wind
I can't open my eyes
The frost is too heavy
I can't look into the stars and see your face winking back at me anymore
My wings a black sheath are frozen
I can no longer fly in the sky up so high
IT is so cold
Where is the sun?
Guess I am forever cursed to forever live in this frozen wasteland of eternal night
It is so cold
I HaveI have cried from broken hearts.I Have4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have laughed because of my friends.
I have sang for the joy of it.
I have screamed when it was the only thing to do.
I have been depressed from my own life.
I have walked this Earth to find my purpose.
I have feared those of darkness.
I have embraced those of the light.
I have loved with all my heart

Does not give you the right
To badger, poke, and prod
Them about what's in your sight
They know they are strange
They like themselves this way
They don't want to change
So please, just go away
They want to stand apart
From this sea of plain old soul
Their appearance is their own art
Telling them different isn't your role

Just rotting flower pedals in the wind
Just dead trees swaying in the breeze
If only i could just grow wings a black sheath and escape from this hell
Look at all the pretty stars in the sky
So close i could touch them......

People always each other using
Will i ever figure it out
At them should i just shout

But all my hopes they would certainly slay
What should i do?

I dont know what to do
None of them know
The pain and love that through me they sow

Am I that girl that cried when the teacher gave her a B?
Am I the girl that never let a cut or bruise stop her?
Am I that girl that fought with her mother for hours, and made her brother cry?
Am I that straight A student?
Am I that girl who "friends" betrayed her?
Am I that girl who fell for that guy?
Is that all I am?
A collection of events?
Or am I more?
Am I what is yet to come?
Am I also made up of my hopes and dreams?
The things that will never come to be?
Am I also my feelings?
Am I happy?
I don't know
They say I'm more than the sum of my parts
1+2 will always equal 3
It can never equal 4
No matter how much it wants to

See the stars that fly up so high
Raise your wings a black sheath
Feel yourself shake like a leaf
Finally you get to recliam the stars
Join the 7 planets like jupiter and mars
I wish i may
I wis i might
On the first star i see tonight
I wish for someone to love me and be with me
For someone within me, to be able to see
But nobody wants to be mine
So im stuck forever to walk this lonely little line
Who am iDead trees swaying in the windWho am i4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Rotting flower padals evrywhere
Death on skeleton wings spread high
The patient warrior who sword cuts down both foe and freind
An antient old man whos life now comes to an end
An abondened child who now cries in the rain so no one can see his tears
Mr. No Name whos only freind has left
A lier that just wants you to care
An outcast who just wants to be accepted, to become one of the blank faces milling around him
An ancient temple that now crumbles in the wind
Love in its most curropted form

When you freeze with fright
When there is no sight
When the stars shine so bright
Death comes for you on skeleton wings from up so high
In the sky you will fly
All the pretty flower pedals to the earth now fall
All this i can not draw
So i write this story of a different time
In another peom that rhymes

But you want that dont you
Cant you give me that small victory
ForgottenIn the forgotten places of this worldForgotten4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where run away and forgotten children dwell
Where the spirits rule
There pieces of my scattered soul reside
I am nowhere and everywhere at once
Though nobody cares for this scared body
My broken soul now travels the world in search of someone who will care
I am neither here nor there
I am here and there
Can someone exist though no one knows of his existance?
EcstasyWhen her hand touches mineEcstasy4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When her skin brushes up against me
Even the slightest contact send me into ecstasy
My mind empties
My body goes limp
My heart starts beating
All the cobwebs in my soul disappear
The cosmos itself stops moving
Everything i all right
But she'll never know how i feel
She'll never see the happiness she brings me
So she'll find me one day hanging from a tree
Death on skeleton wings spread high
Hold OnThere comes a timeHold On4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When even the stubborn need to let go
To realize that holding the pain in their hearts is what's killing them
Even though you never lose hope
And moving on may be the hardest thing you've ever done
Once you choose to let go you'll feel free
And realize that you haven't really lost anything
Not even hope.
The PledgeI won't give you the cruel,The Pledge4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
you seek from me,
I won't fall into place,
like all the others.
Letting you use those little remarks,
you have always hurt me with.
I will no longer always try to do it to your satisfaction.
I'll do it to mine.
And it'll be,
better then before.
I will no longer let you pressure me,
to do it your way.
And I won't become,
what you want me to become.
I'll do what I want with my life.
Your not going to have your say anymore.
I've come to learn that you just don't want your say when it comes to me,
you want control.
This is my pledge to do what I want with everything that is mine.
I'll make mistakes.
I know this,
I don't have to be forewarned.
I'll mess up.
But I know it'll get better.
I'm smart enough to know,
how to get out of trouble.
And when and if I show you this poem,
you'll say all the ways I'm wrong.
Then you'll tell me you love me.
Then it'll all be swell.
At least for you.
You think I forgive you for everything you've done.
Weak.Don't you like it?Weak.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The pretty colour,
Seeping out of your simple paper cut,
Making you feel a little less stronger.
Dogmatic in its little ways,
Getting to your mind.
Alowing you the want to die,
Whispering its little pleas to escape the infected body you constantly feed.
To starve yourself,
And all you know,
To become a skeleton,
Alike to the ones hidden in your heart's very closet,
Drowning so slowly.
Causing those you love the pain you seem to make so unintentionaly,
Eventually realizing your all alone now.
Reaching for nothing,
As they laugh and cry,
Behind your bleeding back..
Even when you die.
Broken GlassWords that once belonged to meBroken Glass4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Escape my icy grasp
Feelings that once guided me
Are now to far to clasp
And I can no longer remember
The sweet taste of your kiss
And the havoc wrecks my soul
That once was filled with bliss
And now my filthy hands cradle the broken glass
that was my perfect existence....
If only I had known that I
Would throw it all away
Would I have hemmed the edges
That now have started to fray
It was just one night of passion
That seemed so right at the time
It was the most vile wrong
How could I be so blind
And now my wet hands dig through the broken glass
that was my angel's breath....
I would give everything
To hold her once again
But I stained her perfection
With all my wretched sin
I would give her anything
To feel her warmth once more
Instead I carry the label
Of a dark and dirty whore
And now my bloodied hands clench the broken glass
That was her love....
StolenDefiled innocents lay strandedStolen4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We sleep with heavy limbs
Undisturbed by disturbing dreams
Love costs too much
We are too poor and broken
to pay its price
Scattered ashes take place of roses
where we step
No one moves to save us
Large eyes watch on as we scream
Stolen prayers are sent up
As we stare down
Always cupping our hands
Never earning what we seek
There is no middle ground
We walk unsteadily
And fall as often as we can
No one helps us up
We cry silent tears
No one cares
When did we lose that innocence?
Even Though It Never WasI need you to see it too;Even Though It Never Was4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I cannot give up on us,
even though it never was.
Just because this makes me cry
every single night
doesn't mean I wish that it would end.
Doesn't mean I ever want to give up.
Tell me it's not over now.
It can't be over;
it hasn't started.
Just because your heart
does not belong to me,
doesn't change the fact
that my heart is,
always has been yours.

cause and effect.maybe not so much the correlation between whatcause and effect.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
actions one takes, what words one says,
but the outcome.
teenagers always say, they always do, that
"I can handle it, I can
escape this, I can overcome and
be invincible, because I am me, and we are young."
they won't be the ones to
perish, they'll live on
through eternity, they can
chase the beasts of life and still live another day.
but when the blood is splattered on the
windshield, the body limp in a bag too big,
with a little girl in a cell too small and
a dream too shattered to ever recoveris it our fault?
or are we simply human, not seeing
past the bends and twists of time,
thriving only at that specific moment?
i saw my friend in a body bag today.
i saw her weep, scream to the world that all she wanted
was another chance.
life is only what we make of it. i
can tell you all what is wrong, to my standards,
what is right, what is foolish.
but what happens is all up to you.
you are the cause, i am simply an effect.

i will lace my fingers through
my ribcage, or
lay pennies in the hollow of
my throat, just between
(i carved my skeleton
with my bare hands, so
leave a wishbone at my feet
& let it break)
maybe tomorrow i will
on the sidewalk, all skinned knees and
scraped palms, and become
someone else entirely:
i will unfold my eyes
and linger behind them,
warm as winter
