Black smoke spirals high into the sky,
Like demonic fingers reaching to grab the clouds.
Ash descends like fiery rain
Onto the sidewalks of New York City.
An explosion is heard,
And Tower number two is hit.
The planes had driven their wings into the Twin Towers,
And the terrorists drove their stakes into the hearts of Americans.
People stood and watched,
As their loved ones became trapped,
And it seemed like there was no hope
An earth-shattering noise,
And Tower Two collapsed.
Dust and debris swirled in a suffocating tornado;
Endangering those who were around.
People cried and ran,
For they knew people in the Tower.
Another horrifying noise,
And Tower One came down too.
Now there was nothing left but rubble,
And the time it took to clear it away.
Now I stand on the edge of Ground Zero
Just ten short years later.
The chilling ghosts of the bravest voices in history
Echo softly around the site.
The pain we've endured over the course of these years
Is permanently etched into

The beginning of the end,
And the end of the beginning.
The middle of the introduction,
And the intro to the 20-years-later.
I am endless,
In this maze of time.
I am a cycle,
Living in a straight line.
I am unique,
In this world of monochrome.
And I am boring,
In this world of constant change.
I am someone,
Where no one has a name.
I am no one,
Where everyone's the same.
I am the opposite of antonym,
And the antonym of synonym.
I am the nonsensical part of your mind.
I am the logical part of your heart.
I am the thing that doesn't exist.
But yet I am right here.
I am the thing that will never desist,
Hold this guessing game to the end.

It's so bright and beautiful,
Shinning just so we will be able to see,
See how this one simple thing,
Can change your whole life,
Have you ever just stepped into the suns light,
To feel the warmth it's offering you ,
It's shine just asking you,
To come and play outside,
If even for a little while,
Have you ever just danced in your kitchen,
Because you wanted to act silly,
While no ones around to watch,
You act truly amazing,
Have you ever just cried into the night,
To let all those worries pour out,
Onto that pillow you hold so tightly,
Only wanting the pain to go away,
Have you ever just laid in your yard,
To see those stars once more,
Because their there to listen,

One second you told me how beautiful I was
The next it was like I was invisible
I believed we'd have a romance like the notebook
The next Allie and Noah
We'd grow old together and tell our story to the young ones someday
And when I left you'd read our story back to me
I'd make my way back to you if only for a moment
But I've always been too much of a dreamer
ii. I just wanna know how you feel
What do you think of me
Do you find me beautiful?
I find you fascinating
Is it odd I've already picked a song?
I guess that's just how I am
But I screwed everything up rushing last time
I hope I don't do it again
iii. You are such a beautiful girl
One day I will prove this to you
I don't care what it takes, but it's true
You deserve to know it more than anyone
iv. I hope you're starting to believe
That there are some miracles in the world
You were lucky enough to find one
People can call it medicine
But I find myself believing in the little joy
Insomnia.Sleepless nights turn into sorrowful daysInsomnia.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where all I do is think endless thoughts
For night after night, sunrise to sunset
The absence of emotion often turns into angst
Hopelessness fills my mind and takes over
Or perhaps, that is called despair
My mind seems to wander for hours aimlessly
Without a clue of where to begin or end
I sit alone, wondering where everyone has gone
I look in the mirror, wondering what has come of me
I'm a stranger in my eyes, turning into a beast,
A monster lurking in the shadows of the night.
Unable to sleep...
Unable to dream.
Forever YoungIf you could live forever, would you take that chance?Forever Young3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Imagine, watching your own life from afar.
Remembering the heartbreak and the tears,
Seeing all the people who left you with scars;
Coming to terms with your hidden fears.
Remember the day when you said to me,
"I want to die young or live forever."
Surely after all these years, you can see
You cannot simply wish for whatever.
Because every time I see you cry,
I'm reminded of just how much I love you.
How could you possibly wish to die?
If only you knew, if only you knew
Do you really want to live forever?

The way she smiles could shatter the coldest of hearts with it's way of eating through your hearts shell to the blackened core. Her smile was a twist of sorts with that half frown-half smile that couldn't seem to figure out what it wanted to be, happy or sad. No one seemed to notice the battle of emotions raging in her head, her smile the only proof of a bloody aftermath.
Her laugh could bring anyone to do her bidding and make their own heart beat again. Her laugh spread like a wildfire and just kept going, even when it's arsonist turned herself in to the police and pledged guilty. Her gray eyes would cloud over as if a churning storm swirled over an empty abyss. The way her eyes shine as if all she sees is the beauty in people and all the magic in the world. They could outshine the sun if she ever wanted them to.
She still smiles like nothing never happened, as if her heart didn't fall into a thousand pieces just because in her ever after, her

You have been cruel to me, so cruel. It seems like only yesterday he jumped and hung, yet in reality it has been weeks. Maybe the time merely seems fleeting due to my utter lack of interest in the world since... since it happened. Tears have become as permanent on my face as railway tracks, and they crisscross each other in the most peculiar manner. An eon has passed since I last smiled.
Why did you have to drive my son to take his life? Why did you make him bipolar? Up until now I believed in god, but nowadays I am not too sure. Was it my fault everything happened, for sending him away from home? The doctor recommended the school, but in the end it was the school which killed him.

When your stomach drops so bad you feel sick.
When you hear something you didn't want to,
You can't un-hear it, it's branded in your head.
You play it over and watch it run through,
Again and again, you die a little inside.
You can't try to change it like you want to,
Fear grips you like you can't imagine.
You're trembling slightly, wait, wishing,
You sit there wondering if he will change his mind.
So that's what it feels like to be in love,
To almost lose the one you want.

Time to wipe all your frustration clean.
Smile as you see he's on this time
Now you'll draw a few more lines.
Enjoy making him squirm and writhe.
This is what makes you feel alive.
Do you realize there's a real person on the other side,
Of all those hateful words you spew online?
They aren't invisible people for you to use as a vent.
Causing pain with every message you ever sent.
They have a heart that beats,
That hopes and dreams.
Eyes that open every morning.
They deal with life whether its sunshine or storming.
There's a life on the other side,
Of all those times you just spoke your mind.
You aren't a bully, or so you say.
You care about people and you're okay.
But tell me how do you treat,
Those who can't find the words to speak?
Do you enjoy grinding them underfoot?
Shoving their faces in the ashes and soot?
Do you realize there's a real person on the other side,
Of all those hateful words you spew online?

What does that really mean?
Long walks to nowhere.
Talking for hours on end.
Helping each other in tight places.
Being there no matter what.
Listening at 3 in the morning.
Understanding with just a glance.
Crying on their shoulder only theirs.
Being able to go over at 1 in the morning.
Sitting next to each other not saying a word.
Leaning on them in your time of need.
Knowing something is wrong just by a look.
The true test distance and time.
Being apart and still being able to do all that.
Best friends til the end? I only have one.

She's ignorant to the sense of pain,
stuck in her micro size world all day,
regardless she desires to leave,
because she does understand enough to know,
that she is getting screwed without a kiss behind the ear,
And that where she is at right now is senseless.
She's a hothead who doesn't know responsibility,
how could she when she hasn't started to live yet,
she chips away at the walls with pieces of her self,
trying to learn what life is,
so far away from here,
where dreams don't come true.
She's with dreams for the restless,
thinking that it'll be oh so easy,
people please stop trying to preach to me,
I have my hands around my life,
slowly coking away all of my opportunities,
don't you know that I wouldn't kill me?

To be remembered fondly with a smile
To accomplish great things with humility
To sit back and watch others benefit from your knowledge
To love and be loved
To be known and feared though out the lands
Or to simply survive
Whatever you desire
Each one of us
Is like a pebble thrown into a vast pond
We create ripples that affect all around us
So no matter what you say or do
Remember we are but a fleeting moment
A single musical note from the universe's grand symphony
But one that can change the very fabric of existence around us
More-so should the notes combine and then
We can out sing the highest choir of angels
So what do you want from life?
