My sunshineMy sunshine2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine

You stroked all my pretty s c a r s.

SubliminalThere is a girl.Subliminal2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She lives in the
darkest corner of the universe
emptiest plains of the desert
deepest depths of your mind.
A frail wisp of reminiscence
barely a ripple
in the shadowed ocean of your thoughts.
Did you push her there?
Was it another?
Or did she travel there on her own?
Eyes don't see
ears don't hear
lips don't respond to
a broken cry in the night.
Time fades the
dusty boxes in the archives
of your past
where she walks.
There is a girl.
She lives in the
hidden strokes of a painting
loneliest raft in the ocean
oldest disarray of your memory.
She is waiting for you to
see her isolation
hear her screams
call to her.

despite this overwhelming feeling
of being empty, alone, and wrong.
no matter how hard i try hiding
how i feel so helpless of whats been done
all i wish is that I'd be with you, my one.
i try so hard to explain
but the words are jumbled and lost in my brain.
how can you expect me to refrain
from telling you I'm going inane?
please don't see this as some fun game,
i can't take this pain yet again.
i know you think you're doing right,
but do you care that i cry at night,
wishing you'd let me be at your side?
do you know how empty i feel inside?
i don't want to cause a fight,
but this pain can never be right, right?
i try to do my best
while you start on your quest,
but this pain in my chest
is overwhelming, won't rest,
please see that I'm trying to fulfill your request.
I'm tired of being hut by my closest friends,
especially the ones I'll love til the end,
but yet the more pain i get
drives me further to my end.
i can only hide and pretend

OneI have a life threatening illnessOne2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Severe and Major
It's threatened my life on more than
A few occasions
Dark nights it lingers over my shoulder
Whispering thoughts into my head
One tragic accident away from death
One slip, one night I feel too...
One cut too deep, One slice too thick,
One pill too many, One jump too far,
One step off a curb, One shot in the dark,
One word too many hanging from your lips
One comment too far, One life lost,
One thin piece of rope, One chair kicked,
One river too deep, One knife too sharp,
One pool of blood too large, One bad day,
One teenager added to a growing statistic,
One family torn apart, One school shocked,
One neighborhood mourning a hidden struggle
It only really takes ONE
Open your eyes.
Reach out One hand,
Say One genuinely kind thing,
Keep One thing in your thoughts,
Tell One person what you've seen
Tell One person how you feel, what you suspect
Open your mouth Once
Save ONE life.

I pretend that I'm playing with fire,
Cause it reminds me what it felt like,
To be alive, to be free,
To be dangerous and adored,
I pretend that when I walk sparks fly,
From my heels and set my path ablaze,
I like to watch bemused stares,
And think to myself, for once,
I'm the (good) bad girl,
I want my hair to flick wildly around my face,
For my smile to stop conversations,
I want to set fire to all we know,
To all the misconceived conceptions,
The stereotypes and lies.
I want to set fire to our love,
And hope that we survive.

Is it happened to you
to experience real emotions
for something fake?
Have you felt the goose bumps,
the heart beat faster,
lacrimal glands become active?
When you read the Harry Potter books,
watch movies, or even,
simply, think about?
Have you heard the desire
to pierce your skin
to enter as a pure spirit
in an ideal world?
Personally, in these cases,
I appeal to a dreamy voice.
I hear her distinctly,
She says what I need to hear:
« Don't worry,
you're just as sane as I am! »
Then I think of you, us,
the small community of this page
the largest of all the pages,
that, sooner or later, for one reason or another,
meet and intersect.
I think of all role-players,
forums, the new world of Pottermore,
friends that in their classroom,
or at the bar, or sitting on a bench,
says in their speeches
phrases like: « How is great when Sirius:
"Come out, come out Peeeter"! »

The person everybody seesI want to screamThe person everybody sees2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to cry
I want to kick and punch
And get rid of these emotions
Inside of me.
But I wont.
Because that ruins my image
Of a normal girl.
Outside is a normal
Happy, hyper girl.
Inside are all the
Emotions that I can't show.
I want to scream
And run away
And cry until I cant see
But I wont
Because you all
Wouldn't handle the real me.
The one who's bitchy
The one that's over sensitive
The one that doesn't listen
The one who hates everything
So leave me alone
So I can cry
So that I can be
That no one else sees.
Lost LoveDid you know?Lost Love7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It takes a minute to like someone,
and an hour to love someone,
but to forget someone takes a lifetime.
Well its true.
Cuz it describes what happen when I met you.
You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
but you can't close your heart to things you don't want to feel.
Its just not possible.
Just like I can't stop the rain from falling,
I can't stop my heart from loving.
Thats why I can't talk to you anymore,
its not that I'm mad at you,
Or that I HATE YOU,
its just that when I talk to you I realize how much I love you
and when I realize how much I love you,
I realize I can't have you and that kills me.
If only I never met you.
If I never met you, I wouldn't like you.
If I didn't like you I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you I wouldn't miss you,
but I did, I do, and I will.
And I cant do anything about it.
Its like no matter what I do,
I never seem to get close to you.
Thats why I'm pushing you away.
Cuz I want my love to die today!

Missing YouMissing is a strange thingMissing You7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That I never thought applied to me
But now you've left, truly gone
I miss you with a fiery intensity
It burns and burns
It has no end
But when it comes down to it I know we're only friends
Missing is unfair
It creeps up sneakily behind me
And leaps to my side whenever you're not there
To hold my hand silently
I miss the warmth in your eyes
And the smile that plays on your lips
I miss fussing over your jumper, holding your hand and arguing over the colour of the sky
I just miss telling you things like this
There's a cold shiver this morning
Now I realise this is true
Please don't leave me now
Now I've fallen head over heels for you

WallsLike a reopened woundWalls5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
a broken heart is more susceptible to infection
I built my walls up
year after year
brick by brick
but for some reason
I took them down
I disassembled them
brick by brick
letting a little more of myself slide between the cracks
whenever we were together
I thought you were doing the same
it was the magnitude of it all I think
Suddenly the walls are no longer being taken down carefully
but crumbling around me
in a flurry of emotions you're the only thing I see
the only thing I smell or feel
Standing on the other side
in a flurry of emotions
and I'm standing there
In the middle of the wreckage
tears streaming down my face
I reach out to you for comfort
our eyes meet
and he's gone
Leaving me to clean this mess up on my own
Broken HeartWhy does love hurt?Broken Heart5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Why does something that is supposed to be so sweet
Leave you wounded
Battered and broken
Yet still wanting
Wanting what hurt you in the first place
Why does a heart
Make the body feel such strong emotions
Leave you open
And not caring
If you get it returned in full
Love is addicting
Like that drug you know is bad for you
You ache for it
Yearn and pine
Wanting to hear
The words I love you
But instead of that
You dont hear what you want
You call out
Cry for emotion
But your heart is alone
And you are left broken again

There's not a lot to do.
So I guess it's only natural,
My thoughts will turn to you.
All those times we had,
The good times and the bad.
Even though they're over now,
They happened so I'm glad.
I think of all the times,
We've spent chatting together.
The arguments and funny times,
Changeable as the weather.
I think about the love,
That you seem to share.
No matter what remember,
I'm always here to care.
I think of how you accepted me,
Even when we'd hardly met.
Looking back and smiling,
On my best decision yet.
Refreshing the page over,
Still no sign of revive.
I think of all the things,
It means to be alive.
I think of all the friends I've made,
And all the friends I've lost.
Finding the best people,
Always has a cost.
I think of what I owe you,
For being there for me.
For talking to me every day,
That's where you'll always be.
In my heart,
And in my mind.
Memories of you,
Aren't hard to find.
Beautiful things can happen,

Come in, come in...
Why go back home, why turn around?
The forest calls.. Can’t you hear the sound?
Come in, come in...
There is nothing to lose, and everything to win;
for this, this is not like anywhere you've ever been.
Here the trees twist, the branches twine
the twigs crack, the leaves rustle.
You won't get far, not moving a muscle.
Don't be afraid...
You could always stay
just till darkness falls?
Move.. come on, the forest calls!
Go on, and don't look back
Just follow the track, step by step.
No need to bring water, no need to bring bread

Powerful and strong
With slippery scales emerald green
And tail sleek and long
From an ancient undiscovered race
I subsist to rule the sea
No other creature has such grace
Lovliness and purity

Nothing swims like I can
No dweller of the deep
The sea entire is mine to roam
I've everywhere to hide
In my elysian ocean home
