Only years later did I learn
that the happiness in my household
was nothing but a taut veil
waiting to snap at any provocation
And indeed did it snap
and my happiness was killed
the death of a loved one
who gave me true happiness
The veil disintegrated to nothing
sorrow and fear arose
the future looked bleak
and all I knew was fear
Looking back on it
all I can focus on is the time
more specifically, the lost time
all the time I lost to sadness
I know now that I will never,
even though I have tried to,
get this lost time back
it is gone for good
The fear of the present future
once again stirs fear into my heart
stagnation stagnation stagnation
it's all I seem to know anymore
I try to remain cheerful
and try new things, I really do,
but they are killed quickly
by the oppressive reign of stagnation
A vicious circle I'm stuck in
a twisted dark Ouroboros
I can't get ahead, I can't get time
Stagnation stagnation stagnation
The Wall Of GlassShe smashes her fist against the wall of glassThe Wall Of Glass4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking through it
Sees the people on the other side
On the outside of this cage
This cage that no one sees
The cage no one knows exist
Tears fall from wet eyes of hers
Tears no one sees
She let out cries
That no one hear
She tries to yell at the people
But they don't hear her
They don't even look
Everytime their eyes look in her direction
Is it just blank eyes, which is looking through her
No one notice her
She don't understand why she is alone
Why she have to go through this pain
Her fist ram against the wall again
She sees kids on her own age
And having fun
Kids with smiles on their faces
Smiles she know she never are going to smile herself
She looks out at the world outside
The world she is longing for
She looks once more at the people
And tries to beg them for open this cage
So she can be a part of that world
But she know it is useless
Because she realized a long time ago
That they do not see

I Heald you in my Arms Taking every breath with you
I feel you sliping away and there is nothing I can do
Embracing you to the very end, one final Kiss
Free from Pain free from Sin,Into the dark Abyss
Tears I cant control as I look into your lifelesss eyes
Time stands still I dont want to say Goodbye
Memories flash, yet life is so cruel
Even in death you are so Beautiful
My love Come back to me, I cant live without you
The world has no meaning, there is only one thing I can do
One year to the day, into the Cemetery At night
Crying by your tombstone I take my own life
Free from pain free from sin
we Dance in the heavens our souls are together again

It's a pleasure just to hear you
Not to mention what I feel when I simply touch you
Just one of ways to say how much I love you
Little more emotions inside
Little more feelings to hide
But I'm gonna show you tonight
Open my heart with power of light
I don't need to tell you, don't need to explain
Just want to dance here with you under the pouring rain
How much beauty in your eyes right now I can see
How much warm from your body right now I can feel
It's our life, love, hate and place where we all live
Something what we have and something in what we believe
Eyes wide open so I can see something what's showing me
Why I'm alive, who I love and what keeps me here
This simple feeling or maybe it's in you what is making me free
Cause I know who I am, who you are and that we are real

I smell the bait
I'd run away
But it's too late.
I feel the pain
I must refrain
Just stop, they say
There's too much to gain.
Hold me now
It follows me
I'm already found.
To love again
Would be the end
I'd clean up the mess
To come home, my friend.
To stay away
Just for a day
Kill me now
I'd waste away.
Too far to stop
Just hit the top
Come to me Death,
My heart's ready to stop.

I'm trying to escape from this depression creeping up on me,
but it's catching up.
I don't want to be depressed.
I don't want to have tears flood my eyes
I don't want to hide behind this crumbling mask of emotion,
But no one bothers to ask if I'm truly alright.
Everyone assumes I'm as happy as can be
without a single care in the world.
No one really sees the inside
where I'm hurting and confused...
But no one bothers to rip off the cover of my story and see me for who I really am.

My name is Trever and a few weeks ago, I met a girl. Her name was Tera. She likes black caddies, Puff Daddy and dancing. She works at the diner around the corner. Her boss seems to always be in a bad mood. I think he is having problems with his wife or whatever, but that's none of my buisness...
She seems pretty happy with her life but there is one problem ... Shady ... her boyfriend. He has another girlfriend, Katie and every other girl he could get his hands gruby hands on. She loves him and will do anything for him while he's going around trying to get in every girl's pants.
I really like Tera. It's too bad she's in a relationship. It's even worse that she's in a terrible relationship like this. Why can't you see this, Tera? Why can't you see how bad he is? You deserve much better than this! When will you realize you mean a
lot more to me?
Last Friday, when my last class was over, I saw her in the hallway so wa

The Tale of the Dandelion Seeds
Once upon a time, best beloved, in far off mysterious lands with exotic names, and here as well; in ancient times as well as now, there lived boys and girls, lots of them, millions even.
They lived with monsters, oh, and not the kind you could tell were monsters like you usually can.
They were not giants or ogres, nor the Titans of renown.
They looked like you and they looked like me. They were human and yet, they were monsters.
Some were strangers that the children didn't know, but many of the monsters were people they did know.
Many times they were relatives, a father, a mother, a brother or sister. A grandparent, an uncle, sometimes a teacher. These monsters hurt the children in so many different ways. They abused them, verbally, physically, sexually.
Sometimes they terrified the children by

Time Heals Nothing
Your sprit passes threw me like a cold breeze on a warm day,
no physical being left to see,
but I know you are with me.
TIME HEALS NOTHING!!!!!!!!!.....in me
I've gone to all the places you would be,
still I cant except your not with me.
your grave is so lonely,
like two staring eyes in the night.
TIME HEALS NOTHING!!!!!!!!!.....in me

Why am I hated?
Love is what I've awaited.
Sitting all alone, listening to others drone.
I always disappear, when others are near.
I've sometimes pleaded to just be needed ...

so i put on makeup
in the hopes that one day
i might be beautiful
They said i was fat
so i stopped eating
in the hopes that my waist would shrink
and Their hearts would grow
They told me i was weird
so i tried to change myself
distancing me from the girl
i have known my whole life
They told me i didn't deserve life
so i began to hurt myself
in the hopes that somebody would see
that i'm in pain
and that i would become worthy
i took Their scorn
and i tried my best
to become the person
They said I'd never be
but yet in the end
i failed tragically
hating the fact that i'm
who i am
They told me i should die
so one day i finally decided
i'd try to grant Their last wish
to finally get something right
but now i see
that I am worth something
That their words
Are nothing on me
From now on I'll only be
What I was meant to be
And I won't change
For anybody anymore
they will not control my life
I will not let them dictate
my thoughts or my actions
because I will not stoop down a
