In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyesIn a Little Girl's Mind3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Monsters, destruction, and sweet butterflies
Hopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screams
Beautiful dresses now torn at the seams
Crayons and paintbrushes, villains and grins
Young, gladsome innocence, hatred and sins
Little red houses on roads left to fade
Gorgeous moonlight shining off of the blade
Blood pouring out as she cries her own name
Knowing she's forced to take each bit of blame
She could have stopped it and left it behind
All of these things in her troubled young mind
She could have saved them if she dared to try
Rather, though, she left herself there to die.
Now, others watch as she sits on the ground
Keeping their distance and letting her drown
In her own worries and things she won't tell
Waiting for her mind to kill her as well…

I watch as you fall
and I won't make a move
to answer your call.
I am dishonest,
it has been since my smallest years
that I let my truth into others ears.
I am a composer,
of a great many lies
yet carry luck like a clover
I never break my disguise.
Through those heat filled faces surrounding me
I can just barely see
and sometimes I find nowhere to run
they take over me.
I am rarely awake with sun,
so that when everything slips undone,
I will not be exposed
I will always stay composed.
I keep my secrets like stars keep distance
burning bright beneath my skin
defining my existence
out of reach and filled with sin.
Never trust a word I say,
I lie to everyone every day
and this is the only time
I will admit
that I am unlike you in many ways.
Who I am is just this: a secret to hold
and I will show no one
no matter how bold.

I can see You...
As if You were beside me
and had never let me go...
Even when I close my eyes
at night, You are there...
But I know you are holding and
being held by someone else now...
And it kills me,
every single time...
The heart wrenching tears that I cry,
should at least blur my vision of You...
To deter or hide away,
Your haunting beauty...
But they do not and
I carry on suffering...
I cover my shuttered eye lids
with the palms of my hands...
As if to deny,
all possible light...
I grind the heals into them,
but I start seeing bright stars...
And alas, You're still here
torturing me sadistically...
I scream in anguish,
but no one dares care...
As if in silence, a pain
only I can bear...
Desperately, I take my sharpened quill
and plunge it into my eyes...
Leaving only bare sockets to remain,
on my pride-less blood stained face...
Now blind and truly in Darkness,
I find my mind continues to see You...
There's no escape, no relief
and I am Forever Yours.....
Leave me behindSometimes I wish I could leave my life behindLeave me behind2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Lose my biological father, and brother I have to find.
I won't be missed far from in fact
No one would miss me, no memory in tact.
I've been rejected, unwanted, replaced
A cold part of life that I've learned to face.
No longer am I needed to help you through life
Your new friend took over in aiding your strife.
But don't let me stop you from having fun
Just leave me behind, I know that he's won.
Do not feel guilty and feel I should be invited
I can already tell that you have resided.
All I want is for you to have joy
So please just go, don't let me annoy.
I've given this much thought, and now I've decided
We can still be friends even though you haven't abided.
I've accepted this truth for all that it is
The answer is simple, no need for a quiz.
I'll leave you alone, it's the easiest solution
We've already visited step one, exclusion.
I always am here when life becomes to much
When everything starts to melt in your clutch.
Good luck my frien

Empty and equally airy
If we break out, if we could see
We're more! We are beautifully
Behold what a little lark has;
We need to be welcoming as
A bird's nest.
Our Harms plot to betray our plan.
We'll make noises and smoke like an
With me, start a revolution.

being the daughter of war heroes
because everyone expects things of you
especially the war heroes themselves
You grew up
in a flurry of movement and commotion
never a moment of peace or quiet
and maybe they liked it that way
but you didn’t
not at all
You wanted control
you wanted something you could have
something that would be yours
not just a passed down name
that typical fire hair
You wanted to stand out
you wanted to shine
you wanted to be known
for being you
not for who your
Rebellion is sweet, little fire brand
and so you went after
what you knew you could never have
did you know you were setting yourself up for heartbreak?
or did you just not care?
You thought you could do it
thought if you were pretty enough
fire red curls, baby blue eyes, cherry sweet lips
Oh, that wasn’t yo
