The dark gameI try my best to never break
I try my best to stay awake
But as the days roll by
I find it hard to stay alive
I see a darkness
That calls my name
It has a game
It wants to play
The point is death
The player is him
The darkest shadow
There's ever been
If you fear
Then he will win
If you fight
The game never ends
He made the game
He picked the rules
You cant win this game
Don't be a fool
PainHave you ever wanted to scream?Pain5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Scream until your lungs stopped
Have you ever wanted to cry?
Cry until your eyes burned
Have you ever lied in bed awake?
Just thinking of the ways you could die
Have you ever faked a smile?
Just so no one will ask
Have you ever stared in the mirror?
And just wanted to hit it until the glass broke
Have you ever stayed up late?
Wishing that the pain would go away
Do you ever wonder?
Wonder what went wrong
Do you ever ask?
Ask why it all happened
Has anyone ever asked you?
If you were ok
Have you ever answered I'm fine?
And just walked away knowing you weren't ok

My wrists are stinging
In the dark
Fear and pain
Course my veins
Tear streaked cheeks
Blood red eyes
No one cares
Why should I try
Filled with pain
That never came
Pelage my sleep
Things that I will never see
SuicideSuicide... they call it sinSuicide12 years ago in Other More Like This
They say it is a death in which no-one wins...
They encourage you not to do it, they say it is wrong...
But who is there to encourage you when you can't be strong.
You feel like you have no-one, not even a friend.
No shoulder to cry on, just one last letter to send.

And the slipper doesn't always fit
Prince charming isn't going to take you away
Sweep you of your feet
The good guy doesn't always win
And the hero never gets the girl
I'd like to welcome you to the real world
So take a seat next to the street
Were children play with balls
No one really cares
All they see is flaws
People lie there fake and mean
Kids are getting shot
Death is every were
Blood is never speared
Life just isn't fair
Hay just take a breath
Let it all sink in
Let the world around you fall
Just don't give in

Some days I feel so high

SmileYou tell me to smileSmile4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As if that small jester
Would just make everything ok
As if with the simple up turn of my lips
The world will be ok
And all the bad people in my life will just go away
So simple so quick
A tiny smile and everything's fixed
If I do smile its fake
A way to keep out the tears
You think I'm over dramatic
You don't think it's real
Please come back from that fantasy
You've been living in
Where smiles and laughter fix everything
You're going to hit your head hard
When you wake up from that dream
And realize laughter's nothing
Smiles don't do anything
And life's harder then it seems

My life sucks
I cant handle it
Its taking me over
The thoughts in my head
They kill me inside
But i dont want to confine it anymore
I want to release these thoughts
And let them be real
Dont forget its all your fault
Never forget that
I hate you all
There is one
And they know who they are
I love them
Its not their fault
But i have to do this
Things in my life have been building up lately
Abd i just hate myself too much to let myself live
So this is my note
To say goodbye to eveyone who thought i loved/liked them
good luck in life

Down my arm
Memories of her
Nothing but harm
Puddles at my feet
Growing slowly in size
The light of love
Disappering from my eyes
As it hits the ground
But making no sound
I slump over
Body falling to the floor
Not caring if my eyes
Open again anymore.

The nights where we stayed up talking
I guess things just fade away sometimes...
with or without you I'll find a way to keep on walking
All the smiles and tears
The hugs and the comforting words
They have all disappeared; awakened my fears
You flew away before I could catch you just like the birds
All the games and the fights
Always making up after
Where have they gone, all those nights?
I think the thing I miss most is your laughter
All the promises and the lies
The happiness and hurt
You were always so wise...
But I cant bare to watch as they put you in the dirt...
Where are the laughs, the good times?
The nights where we stayed up talking?
I didn't want this to fade away...but it I'll have to accept that sometime
I lied...without you I cant keep on living...cant keep on walking...
Where are the smiles, the tears?
The hugs and comforting words?
I'll never hear or feel you again...that was my greatest fear...

down the phone,
you said you'd taken some pills,
and didn't want, to die alone.
Is your life,
that messed up,
you had to take steps,
to make it stop?
I cried to you,
to call 999,
you said you couldn't listen,
to voices other than mine.
your voice sounded weak,
fighting for breath,
the silence was noticeable
as if i was deaf.
The streets of heaven,
are already full tonight,
full of souls,
souls of angels,
souls like yours,
souls of people,
whose life ended too soon.
has brought nothing but pain,
upon this world.

I'm gonna leave now...but I wanted to say goodbye
I didn't want you worried....I didn't want you to ask why
I've decided it would be best without me here.....
Why......why didn't you care??
Too many nights crying to sleep
Too many memories....too much to keep
No one understood that She was all alone
There was no one for her....they were never home
Who would have guessed that it'd be me
If only you were here...seeing what I see
She couldn't close her eyes without seeing the past
It was the pain that told her She wouldn't last
She looked at the clock and made her decision
She would carry out her plan, follow through with precision
She had so much hope
That She would live so long!
But as She tightened the rope...
She realized She was wrong.....
She had a better idea...She would write her story
She would end it with a twist! She'd write it on her wrist....
She blinked her eyes...and felt one last tear....
Then She felt her troubles slowly disappear...
ActShe stands on the stagAct5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And doesn't make a move
She's read the script
She knows just what to do
Fake a smile
And laugh on cue
The funny thing is
The stag is her school
This act is her life
These tears are a knife
They kill as they sooth
And take a life
But she's had her practice
She knows just what to do
Take a deep breath
And smile like she always does
So now she stands
Her act is done
She will bow
Before she runs
Puppet on a stringWe're puppetsPuppet on a string4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Held by strings
Its so hard to break free
Its so hard to be me
Some of us
Fallow the crowd
Letting the strings move
Us as it pleases
I don't want to be a puppet
I don't want to be controlled
I want to be free
With out the feelings of these strings
Holding me back
Doing as it pleases
I'm not a puppet
There's others like me
That fight against the strings
We're not puppets
But sometimes we act
Like there's something
Holding us back

Or are you just blind
Maybe you ignore it
That way it all seems fine
But will you ignore it
Till it leads to disaster
Where there's nothing left
But a stone made of plaster
Will you be on your knees?
Begging for time to unwind
So you can pay attention
To my begging eyes
Time moves so fast
It's like a speeding car
If you don't pay attention
You'll find yourself lost
It seems so bazar
At times it seems so slow
But once you look back
You realize how fast it can go

Most of us met you in Freshman year, at Grand River Prep Highschool.
You were kind, hilarious, hyper, and you always had a smile on your face.
Thats what we loved about you.
We know that people have said horrible things about you,
but you never let that stop you,
I hope that when you were driving,
that you were happy, and not hurting.
All of us from Grand River Prep, and even family
mourn for you. Our hearts beat as one.
We are a family, always will be, but without you
it won't ever be the same.
Your memory will always lie in our hearts
and minds forever.
May you rest in peace.
You are with our maker,
safe from any more harm.
No more pain and suffering will ever touch you again.
Your an angel tonight.

Nothing left but air.
A Child So SweetThere once was a child so sweet. So sweet,A Child So Sweet3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He was, the sweetest child you would ever meet.
Oh what a sweet child, the old women would say.
You will surely be rich, so rich, some day.
Emeralds, diamonds, silver and gold,
What a waste it was, the riches he sold.
A prince came and offered, so sweetly, his wealth.
He was rich, much richer than the boy himself.
Emeralds, diamonds, silver and gold,
So rich, they were, though their hearts were cold.
Waiting for the prince, day after day,
he never returned, but all he did was stay.
Oh, what a scared child, to the forest he ran away.
Safe in the trees, safely he hid and safely he played.
A boy, claiming his was a prince, offered his ruby.
To the boy it was strange, but wondered what it could be.
Weeks went on as they started to play,
the ruby rested on his lap, but he pushed it away.
The glow of the jewel poured into his eyes,
but he was so slow, too slow to realize
That the prince ran away with his crown
and the ground opened up beneath his fe

DepressionDepression3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I was younger I was always happy,
And very rarely sad,
But about a year ago,
Everything went from good to bad.
I now grow distant each day,
Every evening I lie in my bed,
Tear streaked cheeks,
Wishing I was dead.
It's no different at school,
I have become a freak,
I am bullied everyday,
Everything has turned bleak.
I asked for help,
And I recieved the same phrase,
It's cause your a teenager,
You'll get over it one of these days.
It got worse a few months later,
I took a breath and cut my arm,
Watched the blood drip,
Yes, I self harm.
I cry every night,
Till I eventually fall asleep,
But then morning comes,
And again I weep.

To feel this old

To be saved
