Once upon a time I met
A girl. Her thoughts
Were always with me
I just never knew.
Years have passed till
We talked again, it was
Like a sign to meet that
Girl once again.
We talked all night like
Never before, ended
With a conclusion that
We really share souls.
Her lips are as soft
As a pullover sleeve, they
Taste even better, like
A vanilla cream.
She's the one who will
Always listen and understand,
Keep your secrets safely
In hear head.
She's my soul mate if
You know what I mean.
Sometimes don't look for it
And it will just appear.

You know that it's true.
When the only one that I want
But it's your choice.
I won't mind. (That's a lie)
I'll understand. (That isn't)
She more to you,
Than I can be.
She needs you.
And yes, I do too,
but she's more
than I can be.
when you go.
More so than
when everyone else
But she means more
Than I ever could.
Distance makes the heart
You said that someone
will try to replace you.
In my heart,
nobody ever could.
I won't let another
overshadow the mark
that you made.
Nobody can ever mean more,
than you do,
And we can keep in touch...
Broken GlassBroken GlassBroken Glass7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
My heart is made out of glass,
My emotions are fragile.
There are elation tests I cannot pass,
Because I cannot find my smile.
Along with a glass heart,
I also have paper skin.
Try to rip and tear me apart,
Then more agony will begin.
Things in life are so complicated,
And there are so many to recall.
There are so many things I hated,
But so much to list them all.
Let's just say I grew up with pain,
I grew up with torment.
My tears fall like they're rain,
And so much torture I underwent.
Have you ever feel shattered into pieces?
I know I do, it hurts so well.
As the amount of shards increases,
More and each has a sad story to tell.
The fault is theirs and yours, too,
The ones that brought me into this mess.
The torture you decided to do
On me and my elation turns less.
Just because I'm not made out of stones
Nor am I made out of diamonds,
Doesn't mean you should break my bones
With claws of tigers, bears and lions.
Do you even know how I feel?

How can it be so wrong?
And if it's not right
Then why have we been hurting all along?
If it wasn't meant to be
Then why were we made this way?
And if we were supposed to be happy
Then shouldn't this love be okay?
Why should we torture ourselves
And not be who we want to be?
And why should we be sometimes hated
By our own hurtful society?
Why should we not love
When sometimes there is so little out there?
And why shouldn't we appreciate this
When we are people who care?
But most of all I wonder
Why does it have to be real?
Shouldn't we just accept each other
And be completely honest with what we feel?

But sometimes I dont.
Sometimes I am waiting
Sometimes its as though something is missing
Though I know its not.
I can see it in you
Just not showing
So very carefully
You are afraid to let out your emotion.
But I am too.
So Ill wait for you.
However long that may be.
Because I understand
When others dont.
Or is love blind?
Is it wrong to wait?
I couldnt leave you
Because I love you.
You know that too.
I know you do.
I see how you care,
Much more than a friend could.
Even if that is hidden too.
I can see it.
You know I miss you.
Do you miss me?
What do you see,
When you are asleep,
So no matter how long you take,
No matter how many people doubt us,
I will remain by your side

My dearest attention I have aimed
In the wrong direction. Wrong attraction.
The ties broke, No more satisfaction.
There never was, there never was.

What if I told you that I am lost here without you?
Will I still get that chance?
That one single chance to show you that I can be everything you wanted me to be?
I don't want to just watch you give away your heart to someone else...
I can't do that.
What if I said that I am going to give life one more chance?
To be everything that I wanted it to be...
Will you believe me if I say that I can't breathe without you?
Will you believe me if I say that I want to spend every last second til the I day I die... with you?
What if I said that you are all that I have?
It is like I'm coming home from a war... with nobody to greet me, but you.
Do you really think that I can just give up like that?
Giving up on you would mean giving up on the rest of my life...
Should a person do that? I'm not even sure.
Why do you think that I am heartless?
I am just sitting here in the darkness...

The sky, a solid slate of gray
Untouched but imperfect
With rain drizzling down all day
I love to take walks when the weather gets like this
It contains a certain calm that the sun will often miss
But even as I'm walking
Dark thoughts will give me trouble
I pause and look down at my own face
Reflected in the puddle
The contours are correct, that is my face, those are my eyes
But it's the soul behind them I don't recognize
And a tear streaks down my cheek
As a smile parts my lips
Even on a day like this
When there's no reason to hide
I still see
A complete stranger inside.

Slowly and majestically,
My roots carefully embedding themselves in every synapse of your mind.
Blossoming with every millimeter.
My branches wrap around you,
Drawn to your sunlight.
I didn't notice at first
How it all crept up on me,
My leaves beginning to display their beauty.
Now I'm in too deep,
Surviving off of your nutrients,
Steadily happy and alive,
And I will not stop growing.

Broken too many promises,
Spoke too many lies.
I'm packing up everything
And running away;
By the time you read these Words...I'll already be far, Far away.
This feeling of failure
Is mine to face alone;
I'm sorry for failing you,
But now I must walk this Lonely path on my own.

It was one moment to change a life.
It was one moment to impact someone.
It was one moment to give them hope for a better future.
It was one moment to make them smile.
It was one moment to encourage them.
It was one moment to hold their hand.
It was one moment to hold them.
It was one moment to give them memories of happiness.
It was one moment that they would never forget.
But it was that one moment,
You decided wasn't worth it.

Shiny green eyes
Melting my heart
A day at a time
Sent through the mail
Gifts for my girl
A pillow in return
A bit of distance
Soon to end
Holding me close
Something to look forward to
Craving your lips
Wanting your kiss
My bed is empty
Big enough for two
Buried deep under fear
Something I find hard to accept
Loving someone of the same sex
You tell me not to be afraid
The voice of an angel
Is oh so convincing
Your arms spread like wings
Warming my heart
To be who we are
A kiss from you
Something that is a trigger
My body would tremble
Maybe even shiver
You will be mine
Can last forever
Just like in the movies
And all the love songs
Your smile will be real
You'll get what you desire
Our bodies will be together
Like ours minds have been,
My beautiful lesbian lover

And my body yearns to be set free

And I guess its time I used this key
This key to the lock that keeps me inside
This gold, lavish cage of mine
I am at a cross-road so what will it be
Will I let this wanderlust take over me?
Not quite sure of that answer yet
So Ill just wonder as I watch yet another sunset

I am unique!
I may not be handsome

But I'm handsome & beautiful
In my own special way,
So go on & say I'm not,
If you dare!
You won't scare me, bully
I will stand my ground;
No longer will you hurt me
Emotionally or break
The new, braver me is in town!
The days where I would
Believe every word you'd
Told me were true...
To where I would slit my wrists

Even when you cyber-bullied me

Leaves an echo of ripples in your reflection.
I want to gouge my fingers into this uncertainty
And read you like a book, but
The chapters of your dark side make me reconsider.
Each page reveals a potential twist and turn,
And danger, so much danger for such a fragile heart.
What if on the last page I realize the story is just fiction?
Uncontrollable, your thirst is
Unquenchable and who am I to
Shut your eyes from your own lust?
My hold is loose when fate and
Lack of faith are gnawing at your covers.
What I fear most is not you waking up to somebody else,
But you waking up as somebody else entirely.

Hating what looks back?
Pinching the fat we see
On our hips
Tempted to just smash it
So we would never have to look
At out degrading selves again
Sometimes we cry
Or we find other things to hate
Teeth not straight
Eye color we hate
Nose too big

Self-confidence is so hard to find
When you're hit hard everyday
With advertisements saying
'This product will help you lose this many pounds!'
'Wash your impurities right away with this cleanser!'
'Fix your smile right up with invisible braces!'
'Buy this product to fix your body and imperfections!'
But the fact is no matter how big or small we may be
Or how crooked our teeth might be
Or how big our nose may be
Or any other imperfection
We are all beautiful
Exactly the way we are
Big, small, short, tall
Because we were molded to be

Stones on the battlefield,

Breathing Glass ~Horror Version~ I had a nightmare last nightBreathing Glass ~Horror Version~ 5 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I dreamt I was standing in a
Great big field of broken glass.
The ground had broken glass
When I took a step
Those shards dug & cut into
My feets' soles & flesh;
It caused great pain to surge
All over me,
As my feet bled.
But that's not the worst of it.
The air was wild & vicious
Each breath I took...
Every gasp I took,
I was unaware that
I was breathing glass.
Those tiny shards were
Cutting my insides;
Making me bleed internally.
Some managed to get into
My eye sockets,
Causing me to cry tears of blood.
My eyes were torn open
And my skin sliced open
Each cut got more & more
Deeper as I continued
Breathing in the glass;
My muscle tissue was
Being shredded into pieces,
Will this place be my grave?
As I then breathed my last.

You can search the ends of the earth
But no matter how far you walk...

Very common, but very meaningful
Wherever it is, tomorrow never dies

Maybe, Paradise is more than enough
There is always a longing in a lifetime
And that is, my immortal life in Paradise
Yet 'tis merely an imaginary life
Taking over me, making me haunted
I would whisper the word with my last breath
For I am willing to be lost in Paradise

delivered it to Rome,
and left it in the Atlantic
like you left me at home
Left me waiting for a knight
upon some valiant steed
to bring me diamonds and pearls
to fufill my every need
But diamonds are not love
for love cannot be bought
You flew away with mine long ago
and I knew all hope was lost
For you took my heart to Paris,
delivered it to Rome.
While you left it in the Atlantic
I waited for you to bring it home.
