JealousyI see her
And I see you,
And while I see you both
I don't know what to do-
Because I love you,
And it makes me mad
To think of
Such tender thoughts
That you've had-
And they aren't for me.
No, they're to do with her,
And though I know it shouldn't,
It makes my cheeks burn-
So I'm sorry.
I'd like you to myself,
but don't worry,
I'll simply suffer in silence.
Feelings never returnedI'm dying insideFeelings never returned3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My feelings are true
My thoughts I can't hide
Though I try to from you
Each day draws out longer
Your siren's call stronger
Each day I wish more to confess
Though I'll run through red fields
In this white satin dress
To the midnight blue glories
In the sun's setting west
And for you, I shall pick one
And place in a vase
And fill much more than mere water in that glass
And as the petals rain down,
So too shall my tears
For the days expand longer
As do my new fears
(Fears I know to be based round the truth)
Fears that are centered round what you will do
And I wish to stay strong
And I wish to call out
Though I could still be wrong
And I'm so filled with doubt
For even as poetry well can express
Interpretations of lines are what humans do best
And to each is their own
So away from the face of my love, I'll bemoan
I shall cry
For it is he with whom I cannot meet an eye
For it is he for whom my cheeks are so pink
And in loving him I will sink
For his feelings never returned
Stupid QuestionsWhy can't someone understand I am different?Stupid Questions4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"She doesn't have your craze! She's normal!"
Can the imaginary character become real for me?
"I don't write books about one-legged boys!"
Can somebody tell me the truth?
"All people you trust tell me you ask them dumb questions!"
Do I have a friend?
"No normal people will talk to you!"
Why is it weird to spend time alone?
"Whom will you ask for help? Your imaginary dumbs?"
Why don't they trust I have the one with whom I can spend time?
"Liar. You spent time alone".
Why do they like blowing stories out of nothing?
"That was such a stupid look! You'd better sit quietly not to scare normal people who come to me!"
Why they are trying to get rid of me?
"Some day you will be punched out! No one will help you!"
Someone, tell me when it will finish.
Its Just a CrushIts A CrushIts Just a Crush3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It feels weird to see you two together
I like you...Kinda?
But You like her, I can tell.
She acts like an idiot to get your attention
You smile brightly when she does
I think I annoy you. Am I paranoid?
That's the reason I avoid you.
I force myself to look away
I can't handle this pain right now
Everything is messed up!
All of my friendships...
I had a dream about this
You smiled and accepted me
But that was just a dream
It could never be reality
I notice things I wish I hadn't
The way you look at her, how you laugh easier
I don't know this feeling well enough,
but I can't let it go.
It's a painful crush
It's irrelevant. Unimportant. It hurts.
Joking around is easy
Lying is the hard part.
I wish I could voice my heart out like she would.
I envy her.
You don't have to deny it.
Don't pretend, you really do like her.
Still this is just a crush
Nothing more. Nothing less.
Unreturned LoveYou are my inspirationUnreturned Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You're the hope I'm clinging to
And for you a proclamation of my feelings will not do
You don't love me
But I love you
I think of you
I dream of you
Your depressions cause me worry
And as I hold me pillow
Tight at night
I think of you
Lay down with me
And hold me close
I'd ask no more than a few
With your arms around me tight
Leans against your chest
Which in my heart feels so right
Looks into your eyes
Which have me flushed inside and out
Times to hold your hand
As butterflies from cocoons sprout
Within my center
Be my first and be my last
Touch my face and show me
That we aren't made out of glass
I'd beg you
If I knew I stood a chance
But as you turn away from me,
I'll still give one last glance

Desperate for life
Decaying and bitter, a
Dull silver knife
Escape from this place
Erase all the pain
A cruel web of lies
Abhorred tears she'd cry
Falling FallingFalling3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A broken heart
Has a lot of potential
A crack down the middle
The beat is insubstantial
It takes more than tape
Or even super glue
It takes love and faith
And it takes you
A bleeding heart
Is nothing to play with
Someone's bruised soul
Punched purple, not whole
It needs a new start
It needs someone trustworthy.
Your time is important
Your love heals all
The heart looks never broken
Maybe it wasn't after all.
Love is resilient
And love is persistent
When one heart beats for another
That beat is consistent.
Love knows best
And love knows all
Love is blind
And runs to your call
So treat it carefully
And don't jump too soon
Trust the other
Mind over matter
Look before you fall.

I tease, and please you
That's all I can do
You don't really care, that it's not just you
Many have come and go
Some come to play
Some just for a show
Have many opened their hearts to let me in
I've even been called a sin.
I've helped turn heads
But I always refused to be taken to bed
Many have come to sample what I can give
Then they end up at my feet
As if they need me to live
After one touch
You can no longer see them as a friend
And I make you come back
Wrong VictimYou're the innocent one?Wrong Victim4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you even know what it does to me,
Every time we fight?
You act like you're the one hurting,
When everyone knows it's me.
You pretend you're the one in tears,
But I'm the one crying don't you see?
Does it make you feel better,
To lay the blame my way?
Or are you just afraid,
Of what everyone would say?
You always play the victim,
Even though inside I'm the one dying.
What's the point in pretending,
When everyone knows you're lying?
Why don't you just grow up,
And start acting like a man?
Just take it one step at a time,
Just do what you can.
I'm tired of feeling this way,
Tired of acting like none of it matters.
When the honest-to-God truth,
Is my heart is laying on the floor in tatters.
I just can't take this anymore,
All of the sneaking around and lies.
It breaks my heart to watch,
As our love withers and dies.
Obviously I can't give you up,
There's no way to tell you no.
It's up to you to leave,
So please just get up and go.

LoveLove is but a rose.Love3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Beautiful and romantic.
Then stings you as you get close and hurts you at the touch.
Silenced by the blissful torture.
Dark is the day, when it dies.
Yet reborn by the bitter cold that killed it.
And love is again as lovely as at first.

So many love songs
Circling the world these days?
Music has probably
Always been this way.
People want love songs
Because people want love;
Because to hear those words
Makes one feel a little
Because music and words
Convey the emotions
Into your heart.
When the feeling is deep,
It sinks into your soul,
And resonates your heart strings
Until your own conscious
Is flooded with happiness
And the bliss of innocence.
Broken MirrorBroken MirrorBroken Mirror4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking at yourself
From a broken mirror
That jagged crack
Holds your deepest fears
Where nobody cares
And you're all alone
And no one can hear
Your cries, your moans
You judge who you are
With that rigid line
Your doubts, your faults
Are not hard to find
You've lost all hope
In believing again
Lose trust in your dreams
Trust in your friends
You destroy your life
Because of that crack
But along the way
You lose things you cannot get back
Focus on the things
The mirror still shows
Your smile, your heart
Because everyone knows
The mirror only broke
Because you expected
Because you had no faith
In the mirror you selected
Would You Cry?Would you cry if I died?Would You Cry?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would you cry if you learned
That my fate was a lie
And that I was destined to die
Right here where I lie.
Would you cry?
Would you cry
I'm not here anymore
Or would you cry because
You actually cared?
Would you cry with others
Would you cry alone
Would you cry with my family
Over the telephone?
I want to know
How sad you would be
I guess what I really want to know is
Would you cry for me?
PsychosisYou know not that of which you speak;Psychosis3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm not subject to your critique;
And with a future plainly, bleak;
I'll turn, so strike my other cheek.
I'll look through you with battered eyes;
I hold those thoughts which you despise;
I see right through your vicious lies;
So learn that which, to me, applies.
You can't see what's within my mind,
Fed up with cruel dreams seeming kind,
The endless trains of thought that bind,
My actions, keeping me confined.
Though, don't you worry, lovely dear-
My body yet, will still be here,
But with neurosis creeping near,
I'll wipe the pointless bitter tears.
But is this mania, happy man?
Or do I simply understand?
Or do I simply know...
and simply comprehend that which You ban?

we cannot hear,
we cannot speak,
we are very sear.
We cannot stand,
we cannot feel,
we cannot walk,
we cannot laugh,
we cannot sense,
we cannot eat,
we are very intense.
Burned for life,
Lost in hope,
with nothing to gain,
Why go on?
We cannot be your friends,
we cannot be with you,
we cannot be here,
Thus we fear.
We cannot leave the house,
we cannot leave the room,
we cannot leave the world,
we are scared.
We cannot smile,
we cannot frown,
we cannot do anything,
we cannot be in life,
we are not alive.
But why us, why?
Love LostIt's dark, and you've just hit me.Love Lost3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's dark, and you've just left me,
Lying on the floor.
I sleep, not of my own will,
To dream of bittersweet things.
I wake, cold and alone.
I wake, sore and broken.
I keep my sanity as I sit alone,
Drawing on my arms,
Freeing myself of these thoughts you've cursed upon me.
My Skin, so White.
Days have passed,
Leaving me alone and lost.
You had loved me.
You had promised me.
You had been all that ever was.
You broke me into pieces.
You, the one person I'll ever love...
The only person I know how to love.
I can see the Poison now.
I still write out the thoughts I have,
Keeping myself free to force a smile.
No one knows you hurt me.
No one knows how you hurt me.
No one knows that you liked hurting me.
I smile, forcibly.
Staring with empty eyes at friends.
Listening to words of supposed comfort.
The Ink Stains my Blood.
I'm alone, in what was our home.
I have touched nothing of our past.
It's left alone.

Long DistanceA thin screen is all that seems to divide us,Long Distance3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But really there are so many more miles between us
It would take almost a month to walk.
And yet, all I want to do is be with him;
I would walk those miles if that's what it takes,
What it takes to be in the same town as he is.
What a lot of people don't know,
Is that thin screen is not enough to keep us together,
Though I am trying as hard as I can,
And I really want to be happy with him,
There are times when I wonder
If I can really handle being so far away from the one I love.
