Your heart shatters,
Leaving pieces fallen on the ground,
The voices scream,
And the tears fall,
Giving a sparkle to your cheeks.
Know that I will always be there,
To pick up the pieces.
Pointed edges of broken glass,
Sharp edges of insecurity can cut,
But they are softened with time and wear,
May heal, when gently stitched.
And even the deepest wounds,

I can see her past scars running up and down her arms
Her beautiful face covered in dried up tears
The once perfect smile gone and replace with a straight line
Oh how I want to hold her and tell her everything is going to be okay
But if I do she'll push me away like all the other times, I help clean her up and put her to
Bed, her arms are covered in bandages all the way up, she hides her true self when she's with others yet I see right through the deception, I see the pain in her eyes when she said everything is alright
I know she's been hurt, I know she's been lied to so many times before, I know she hurts herself to make sure she's still here, people go by her like as if she invisible but I know she's not she just doesn't want people to get to close
I take her arm after her scars have healed and I take a red marker and to write Love on her arms
So many times till she knows it
Over the EdgeI'm hanging over the edgeOver the Edge4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My feet dangling off the side
Not a breath of wind except my slow, rhythmic breathing
Memories swimming through my mind
You jumped and took me with you
Free falling down to the bottom
Life rushing by, my thoughts slurred
Our bodies blurred against the rocky backdrop
More like a suicide mission.
Pack up your things and leave a note just in case
Death was inevitable, but that didn't really sink in until he slipped
His body plummeting down the abyss
Screams ringing in my ears
Collapsing, I almost flung myself over right then and there
But then I would never have experienced the things I had since then.
I'm done now.
I have no more aspirations or missions to complete
The only thing I want is to feel your body against mine
Our fingers intertwined
One of these times I'll get up the courage to do it:
To push off into the unknown and drop into darkness
To join you at the bottom
To Write Love On Her ArmsOnce spoken were wordsTo Write Love On Her Arms6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Stronger than a fragile soul
A tired smile sweeping across
Such a worn-out face
Tell them to look up
Tell them to remember the stars
Two sentences so simple
Bearing a whole world of meaning
Behind a slow, sad smile
Is a broken girl who is uncertain
Of what the future brings
With still years ahead
What a bleak concept
She once thought to herself
As the future lacked appeal
So did her life time after time
But still she held on so tightly
Clinging to the prospect there
Would be a way out sometime
When the clouds would finally clear
Together her friends stood
Wrapping her up in their love
Telling her without words to stay
And to let them love her for who she was
To this day she is still here
Living each and every day
Still sightless but moving along
A symbol that started the movement
Often times people think
That there's only one way out
When a door hangs barely open
To the farthest corner of the darkness
All you have to do
Is extend your arm through
Reach out to who

Here's a tale of one who lost, One who Lost to Win.
Her name was Alice plain and true, Alice it's always been.
Her life was always hard to live, Nothing was ever right.
This is the tale of she who lived, despite the endless fight.
Just Four of us were there that night, for Alice who self-harms.
We were there to take the pain, To Write Love On Her Arms.
It started on a night like this, Cold and full of stars.
She told herself in simple words, "our lives were never ours"
He'd left her there alone and hurt, to serve his selfish greed,
She raised a blade and sliced the skin, and then began to bleed.
Her phone it rang unanswered, I knew something was wrong.
A worried friend, I called them all, asked them to come along.
We all arrived and saw her car, All proof that she was there.
Unanswered calls and worried shouts send us racing up the stairs
We found her curled up, drenched in blood, unconcious from the pain
We bound her wounds in quick responce, carried her
Eternal Flames of Another KindUnrequited loveEternal Flames of Another Kind6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The purest love of all
Given freely without request or requirement
A pain that lives eternally within those hearts and souls.
The spirit of unrequited love
She stands alone among the flames
Surrounded by fires of love and devotion
Encompassed and never consumed
Her hands are bound by chains
She raises to the heavens
An effigy of unrequited love and unrequited pain
An eternal soul burning in an eternal gift of misery and bliss...
And those that seek to gain their love of unrequitedness
In mortal standings and mortal worlds
May call upon her for which they seek
To be delivered in this life
For the trade of eternal burning
In her fires.
A girl with such love in her heart
Sweet kisses have entranced her lips
Tender embraces have held her warmth
She knows a touch of wonder fulfilled
By gentle fingers that dance along silken skin
Fires of another kind entirely
Yet such kisses are not always stories of true love told
Such embraces can be cold and gentle fingers can

Poor girl poor girl
Couldnt see wrong in this world
Living in a bubble created of hate
Knowing not of her fate
And poor girl only thirteen years old
Her parents she never told
The dreadful story that she hid
Poor little kid
And yet this girl is not aware
Of the people who stop to stare
She had beauty and grace
They never said it to her face
I'm ugly she thought
And so she never got caught
For her crimson stained clothes
not caused by a bloody nose
They dont love me she said
But only in her head
And so she didn't eat
She felt such defeat
And one day she fell asleep
The darkness creeped
She didnt wake up in the morning
Her parents stood there moning
The bloddy note by her head
By her pillow on the bed
Was written to her mother and father
Oh what a bother
Those were the first words
followed by the next
Dear mother and father
Was it such a bother?
Why not tell me you loved me?
Why couldn't you just hug me?
Was a simple kiss too much to ask?
A "good luck today" such a larg

Like An Itch I Cannot Scratch
Staring at my wrist
At my arm
At my veins
And I know that there is
Only one way to rid myself
Of this pain.
But that is a road
I must not take
Not ever again.
I must never see that
Red train track
Cross my wrist again.
But you don't understand
I feel it when I need the blade
That cold blade
That can take away my pain
Remove my worries
I understand you when you say
"Don't ever do that again"
I don't know how to
Make you understand that
I need to.
I never expect you to understand
What it is like to depend
On an inanimate object
But for one moment
Pretend you do
And try to imagine
The burning sensation
I feel in my skin
Like An Itch I Cannot Scratch.

The source of her pain
Its all she needs
Love is the key
To stop her pain
Its what she needs
If we tell her we love her
She will forget
If we show her we love her
She wont see
If love is the door
And she lost the key
How can she open it?
How can we convince her not to slit?
If we can show her
How to open the door
To prove we love her
To show shes adored
To write love
We will write it in bold
On the place she looks the most
Well do it, well write it

Can you find love in a damaged heart?
Can you feel life within broken dreams?
Where were the angels that I cried for?
Hidden in the mists.
There is a murky fog of memories
We cannot stop what has begun
For what is done forever will be done.
The angels came
Not quite too late
My saving grace
The angels came.
But only after I was saved.
I could not be what was desired
I could only be what I am.
What am I?
Will no one let me know?
But I know.
I am Beauty.
Ancients Lament - CursedAncients Lament - Cursed12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Memories long gone of wars fought
Blood spilt on sacred grounds
Where Creation once took place.
How the Ancients wept
As those that they had breathed life to
Slaughtered one another without remorse.
Watching as sons killed one another
For nothing more the Shadow's sake
To give to Darker desires.
So sat back did the Ancients
In tears only one
Watching as her children destroyed one another.
Lain in ruins was that bright Creation
Strewn with the gore and blood
Of Innocents and Barbarians whose desires could not be tamed.
Covered in Smoke and Fire
That once glorious Creation died
Laid to waste.
So once again they tried
The Ancients recreating what was once to be Paradise
And once again, Darkness descended and took hold.
So one Ancient bound to mortal flesh
Willingly cursed to live each life
In the misery of that which she created.
In hopes of finding a small crack
Where this wicked cycle might be broken.
And no, there is yet one to be found
For this world will surely fall to Darkness once

"Well we don't seem to have much of a choice, unless either of you have a brilliant idea to save the world, in which case I'm all ears," Pitch said sarcastically, looking from Jack to Jamie.
"We have to try, were the only thing standing between black and the rest of the world." Jamie said grimly.
The three were in North office, Jack pacing the floor, Pitch sitting in the throne like chair behind North's desk usually reserved for the large man himself, and Jamie leaning against the wall near the door.

no one can fix her shattered soul.
her eyes know only salt
from the tears she cries every night.
her wrists know only scars,
an ally of a silent razor fight.
all alone in the dead present;
haunted by a tortured past;
completely lost in the dark;

she couldn't see his hidden face.

so many people greeted her,
with smiles on their face.
all this kindness
made her heart race.
she listened to the music
and the man who said "He loves you!"
what is that book he's holding?
i want to read it, too.

and told him of her demons,

Guardian AngelI've got,Guardian Angel5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A secret heart
A silent flame,
Sheltered from winds, from black, from the soulless,
A tinkering melody,
That dares not speak itself out loud,
For fear of leaving the shelter of the un-thought,
A modest fortress,
That builds quietly in the night on words and sounds,
Protecting the meager debris,
That has yet to be torn away by the onslaught of rain.
Claw at scattered light,
Shredding and suffocating,
As the wind rattles along barren streets,
Screaming the names of people it has lost
I'm creeping away, humanity leaking out from between my lips with every word,
But the secret heart burns quietly,
And when all I have left,
Are my secrets,
And I do not dare to hope,
I can still fall asleep to the lullaby it sings.
To Write Love On Your ArmsOn my armsTo Write Love On Your Arms6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There used to be scars
Reminders of how much I hated myself
But now there is a promise
Of love, of life
Now I know
I am not here to fail
I am here to help
Myself, and others
There are some who need me too
Believe it or not
On my arms
There were names carved deep out of depression
But now, there is love
I used to want to scream
But I knew no one would listen
I was glad
I wanted to die
I wanted to fade away
Now I know
I am not useless
We only want to help you
So put the knife away
This isn't what anybody needs
This isn't good for you
I know you don't care
But I do
But I do
So what if you aren't "perfect"
Perfection becomes redefined in the eyes of the world
Perfection's on the inside
Beauty isn't just skin deep
So go to sleep tonight
Knowing you'll wake up tomorrow
You never were forsaken
Someone came in the night
Like a stranger, like a thief
To steal your pain away
And to write love on your arms
To Write Love On Her Arms-V2The cruelty against those lost,To Write Love On Her Arms-V26 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
is forgetting them or choosing not to care,
and though it happens day after day,
it is too much for one to bear.
She is hurting herself as a sign for attention,
she longs for the loving eye,
she awaits the moment when one will see her,
and thank them that she won't have to die.
We are the ones who are specially chosen,
to embrace and heal her harms,
we are the ones who must reach out,
to write love on her arms.
A lost generation they have become,
a joy they all have forgot,
the truth is simple, the answer is,
they are dying...........love must not.

She feels like she is trapped behind bars,
She screams to the mirror
"There is no hope, I fear!"
In her eyes there are only tears,
She's crying, but nobody hears.
She reaches for the only cure,
Salvation means she'll bleed some more.
The look in her eyes, only one sees,
She's cracked and fallen to her knees.
He walks over, his hand reaches down,
He smiles and speaks "There's no need to frown"
The once crooked scars
Now as sad as the stars,
The message raises no alarms.

And if you stopped to realize you were dealt the winning hand
Maybe you'd get somewhere
Instead of constantly putting yourself down

The songs seem to fade
Drifting up towards the stars
Like the wishes and dreams long lost
The simple pleasures at your voice
Now a tear shed with each remembrance
This sick strange feeling
Loving you still despite the pain
Craving your touch ever more
Even as the wounds bleed fresh still
Crying to the inanimate in my sanctuary
Screaming my despairs and sorrows to empty air
Hating myself for loving you still
Despising you for having trapped me so
Needing you to complete me
