Is This The Way I Chose To Be?Look into my eyes,Is This The Way I Chose To Be?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you think I'm made of stone?
I'm just exhausted of those useless cries,
I'm sick of feeling alone.
Behind that sick mischievous grin,
The full of hatred tone,
I do have my own dream,
I do have a soul.
Why don't you look into my eyes?
Behind my own stone wall,
That I've built to defend myself from the lies,
That's the way I've chose to be,
Why can't you see the real me?
They say is not true,
The person I'm trying to prove to you.
Maybe they are right,
Is there a real me that I'm trying to hide?
Maybe in time I just turned into a monster,
I destroyed everything was nice from me,
Is this the way I chose to be?
I stare at my own reflection,
An empty sight, pale skin,
The good has been burn,
I think I can't recognize myself,
There's no way to turn.
Destruction became my new passion,
Hurting others is a hobby,
Is this the real me?
Is this the way I chose to be?
I will never believe,
I'm not a monster, not a ghost,
Maybe a dark shadow,
My own dreams I stopped to follow.
LifeLife is a journey,Life3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
so enjoy the ride.
Why waste time,
without taking pride?
There you stand,
all gloomy in despair.
and breathe the fresh air.
This world that you're living in,
has its ups and downs.
Stop being so depressed,
enough with your frowns.
Your life is beautiful,
and so are you.
when you're feeling blue.
Feel OkayI've become infectedFeel Okay3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's eating me away like acid
I'm left with this
This excuse for a body..this
My bones are becoming thin
I've lost any strength from within
I can't go out with a friend
The life I'm living is pretend..
I can't go to school
Because this disease is so cruel
I can't live a normal life
And I grow tired of this constant strife
The pain is sometimes unbearable
Honestly, it's quite terrible
Not even medicine can heal
How exactly I feel..
My insides start to ache
Testing how much more I can take
If I will go insane
Just because of the pain
Or the fact that I will never be the same
This disease is to blame
My stomach refuses to agree with me
This is how I will forever be..
Some days I lay in bed
Wondering if there's any good ahead
If it's even worth trying
Even if I know I'm not dying
I don't know if I can be cured
Though, I am self-assured
I know one day
I will feel okay..
RunawayShe's dancing across hemispheres withRunaway2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
red hair writhing in a cosmic halo,
wearing a dress as blue as the
Tip-toeing past terrible, sleeping dragons
as old as time itself, she smiles
and leaves her old world
A symphony of stars sings her way forward
into the undefinable unknown, whilst
she drinks moon-juice and
one day soon, the galaxy will swallow
her up, and she will have never
even existed at

A Cyan SightIn front of broken promises and lies,A Cyan Sight3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I choose to look away and close my eyes,
I'm an intruder in my own dreams,
In the end proved to be wrong-all of my beliefs.
In the dark,
I've seen a light,
A bright warm smile,
A cyan sight,
I thought I've found my savior,
But when I tried to take its hand,
It turned into dust,
"- or was it just out of reach"
In a shadow I've put again my trust?
Falling into hollow,
I've lost my soul,
I got no more a light to follow.
Screaming out my lungs for help,
But there's nobody around to hear,
There's nobody to feel my fear,
Just a cyan sight,
That keeps shining in the dark.
But it's too far away,
While I tried to reach it,
Everything around me turned to grey.
My dreams keeps shattering in front of my eyes,
A fake life, expectations, sick tries,
All that I cared about simply dies,
Will this cyan lighter survive?
Survive to keep me alive.
A bright warm smile,
A cyan sight,
Maybe will lead me to the light,
Does it even shine for me?
I'm the one it ha

Sing me lullabiesI miss the lullabySing me lullabies3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
your heart used to sing to me,
lying my head on your chest
listening to your heartbeat
as I fall asleep
was music to my ears.
And not even the louder
thunder of this rain of pain
that's where my soul
used to be for so long,
not even that could wake me up.
(I thought my soul and my heart
could actually get along
but they never seem to work things out)
Can you live with a feeling heart
and have no soul?
because I've never felt
I missed it
it's like you had always been
my missing soul.
(So I guess that's why
my soul isn't coming back
not unless you leave
but no, darling
don't ever leave
you're so much better
singing me lullabies
as I try to sleep...)

You could kick me out its true
But what would that do to you?
Fight For Me...Tired of being second best.Fight For Me...3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Tired of being the one you run to when there's no one else to fill the void.
Tired of being taken for granted.
I find myself the only one pursuing thoughts of fondness, actions of love.
Am I not worth it? Am I not as close to your heart as I once thought?
True, many may be there to pick up the pieces,
Pieces of the feelings you left shattered, hanging by a thread.
Then why is it that the one person I truly feel for,
The only one I am seeking casts me aside and only returns when convenience makes itself known?
Fighting to make this work, it's all one way.
Now, I'm exhausted.
So, thank you for the loyalty of your emotions, making it evident that you truly wanted me
Because I never felt that, at least not now.
Don't tease me with false intentions of longing.
Stop toying with my mind and stirring passion in my soul when the only mindset of this I have isn't yours as well.
TIRED of NEVER being the one pursued by you,
ALWAYS the one pursuing.
FIGHT. FOR. ME.

The CatchOne bond brokenThe Catch2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One relationship formed
One friendship damaged
Left one destroyed girl
A friendship that knew no bounds
Formed on mutual love, trust and respect
Then friends turned to lovers
And love was sacrificed for sex
Strangers turned close friends
Now almost turned into a relationship
But with only one catch
He was the former love interest of her best friend
Two best friends
Capable of running the world together
Torn apart by secrets and rejection
Now a cold silence drifts between them
A love that leaves her feeling used
A relationship that causes her guilt
A friendship that leaves her ashamed for what she has done
Leaves her broken-hearted and confused
To every new experience
Every new cause of happiness
Every bond between friends
There is always a catch

You wouldn't give me a chance
So easy to replace me now,

My Darkest FearMy Darkest Fear3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Traces of blood, everywhere I look around,
A desperate help request comes from nowhere,
I hear a scream, I can't move, I'm bound!
Somewhere far, I see a light,
Suddenly, from nothing, it just came to life.
I hear my name, it's echo floating in the air,
I see you down, but I can't see your face,
Your eyes are fixed on the ground, seems now you have fallen from grace
As I look closer ,all becomes so clear,
My heart starts to beat faster,
Over my spine I feel the claws of fear.
You are laying down, in a pool of blood,
Barely breathing, your color starts to fade away,
Your dark brown eyes turning into grey
Out of your lips comes a softly whisper,
Asking for help, searching for a savior.
I fall down on my knees,
I burst into tears,
In front of my eyes becomes so real-
My darkest fear
Desperate I shout, but theres nobody around,
I'm cursing this life, I hate that you left me behind!
I look at my hands, why am I holding this bloody knife?!
I hear a silent accuse,

The story of a white roseMy little white rose, what's your story?The story of a white rose3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your flaws and your wonders and glory.
Lay here before me, my little white gift
with petals both gracious and swift
Your perfectly molded and creamlike white leaves
more stunning than anyone's wildest believes
Some of them fell at my touch; so to say
they withered and died, gotten brown of decay
The rest had surprised me by still holding on
though beaten and broken they hadn't withdrawn
So tell me your story, the tales of the rose
in order for me to perceive how you froze
The reddish pink spots on the innocent white
is it blood that I see, a proof of your fight?
I dare not to ask for too much in one time
afraid of the truth both sad and sublime
Some petals however, curled up in your core
have escaped the havoc of this unfortunate war
I'll unfold them for you, and I'll build up the trust
just have faith in me dear, while I sweep up the dust
You'll shine as no other and wear it with pride
the past as it was, without reasons to hide
Don't ever regr
