Why does this all seem new to her?
This drug, this life saver, this feeling
Everyone calls love.
She's fallen into it, out of it,
So many times, it's like a routine:
Fall in love,
Get her heart smashed to pieces,
Or, even worse,
Break a heart,
And feel the guilt of it resting in the back of her mind.
All this experience,
Yet this feels oh- so- different this time,
As if talking to him makes her feel at peace,
Away from the worry, the pain, the stress
It's a feeling she's never had before,
And she loves every second of it.
How strange is it that her heart skips a beat when he compliments her?
Is it a coincidence that even the mention of his name brings a smile to her face?
Or that he makes her laugh every second of the day?
If this is love, she never wants to leave him.

I am a sleepless daughter of Hypnos.
I am the Night that came unto light.
I am Horus the all Mighty.
I am but a humble Messenger
And a forgotten orphan.
I am a ravenclaw
Of the first cohort
And the twenty-first Nome.
I am a hail storm
Of the south wind.
I am an airbender.
I am Hope,
As well as destruction.
I am a Mormon.
I am that girl nobody talks to in the corner of the room.
I am that kid in the background that's terrified of something as simple as a dance.
I am not a figment of anyone's imagination.
I am secretly your best friend.

We live in a world plagued by clones
Where they strive to spread their bitter hate
Where they breed compulsively like the dogs they are
Where they determine what is acceptable
And what is not
Where they turn up their noses and anything different
Different is disgusting and vile
They will leave you alone if you comply
Looking you over with critical stares
You wait for an approval that is out of your reach
They whisper, point, sneer
You'll never fit into the molds they've created
So you sell yourself short
Purge yourself thin
Carve yourself into that beautiful person
You try so hard to be
Perfection is what you strive for
But they won't have it
They'll beat you down until your senses fail
Until you become deaf with the shrill noise of your own screams
Until you become blind with the divine rage they've left you with
Until you've become nothing more than a soulless doll
But you know better than to fight back

There once was a boy who lived without joy,
His friends called him 'Little Boy Bleeding',
When they'd go to the park he'd sit home in the dark,
Under a red light, reading.
'What's he reading?' They'd ask as he embarked on his task,
And he'd say, 'Guys my heart needs feeding.
I sit in my flat to see where I'm at,
'Cos sometimes my feelings need heeding.'
But what was he reading, this Little Boy Bleeding,
Was it Shakespeare, Shelley or Poe?
And what was he heeding while his heart was feeding,
Keenan, Yorke or Simone?
The medium he took was alas not a book,
Or a poem or play now we know,
For slowly we learned that while his heart burned,
He ingested the purest emo.
Whenever his friends tried making amends,
Or ever called him on the phone,
He'd always reply in tones somewhat shy,
'I'm alright, leave me alone.
Seriously guys, no need to advise,
Please, just leave me alone?'
Listening to sadness and songs which brought madness,
He even wrote one of his own:

SnowmanYou are a snowman.Snowman4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
You are depended by your surroundings to survive,
the parts who make you who you are, seems so important to you.
The hat and the scarf are your belongings,
They are yours.
They make you special.
you need all the space it takes to make you even greater.
You take and take to make yourself bigger.
The more snow the better.
You are afraid of melting,because then you will lose what belongs to you.
You will lose what you think you are.
The sun is your enemy, it makes you become water,
it being strong and bright, melted you and
took everything you had and gave them no purpous.
You worked so hard and waited so long to become that snowman.
All melted away.
You dont stand out anymore.
Desperate thinking you will be ignored and have no meaning.
But as you think giving up the pride of being special faded,
you now lay against the earth connected with everyone else giving the world around you life and a chance to flourish.

Insecure, words hurt, leaves a dull, lonely ache
Endless harsh words leave scars in their wake

so perfectly imperfect youI've finally realized why I've fallen for you,so perfectly imperfect you4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
before it was so simple to say why,
why I didn't understand
and whenever you asked
I'd reply simply that it was because
you were so perfect,
"that's not a real answer."
Now I've realized that
You aren't my dream guy.
Your eyes don't twinkle,
you don't have the perfect smile,
and you don't have all the answers.
And now I understand
that you're not the guy of my dreams,
you're better than that.
Your eyes don't twinkle,
they shine in a constant smile.
You don't have the perfect smile,
you have a lopsided one with the cutest dimple.
And you don't have all the answers,
you keep me guessing and you lead me on an adventure
together with you
to discover them all
You're better than any guy I could ever dream up
because I can grasp you and hold on tight
and feel safe.
Because I can steal your sweatshirt

You sighed, thinking about the last month of your life.
Your Nonno died a month ago. That convinced your mother that you and she had to move to Italy to stay with your now single Nonna. Now, you were living in Florence, Italy and you knew no one. You were just glad that you came over enough summers to know your Italian.
You creeped down the hallways, trying to not get noticed by the throng of Italians around you. You made it to your first class, which was art. Art was what has been getting you by the past two months. You found yourself sketching your Nonno a lot. It made it seem like he wasn't gone.
You sat down in a desk at the back and waited for class to start. You put your pencil on the desk and scooted your chair up. You looked at your desk again and you sighed. You should have known that the pencil would roll off a slanted desk, duh.

as silent tears run down my face
and dark thoughts begin to take
the evil deed my mind does chaise
but no i say or shell i bake
and with my dreams so far away
i bite down and grab my blade
only once I tell myself only once I say
with a flash of pain my despair to trade
across my wrist blood does swell
I watch entranced by its flow
my story I hope never to tell
as I watch the puddle grow
cut one, two now three are made
no longer can I feel my pain
and as I feel myself fade
I watch my blood go down the drain

It's all just words across the page
You put them together in an angry rage.
You wanted to get these feelings out
But writing's not what this is about...
You're tired of expressing
How you think you feel.
You'd rather just scream
At least it's real....
No sense or logic
Just raw emotion.
Like the churning waves
Of a sleeping ocean.
Destroy the structure
Of all you say.
Take away the illusions
They get in the way...
Just say what you think
And you might go free.
But maybe this isn't how it's supposed to be...
"Is it really not possible, to scream through words?"

Bandaged, ripped and split apart.
Stitched and healing like a dream.
Reality hits and tears at the seams.
Died to lie and protect an indelible sin.
Dead for a lie of a love deep as skin.
A dull knife carves the deepest scars.
Trapped in a mind lost in never ending wars.
Look deep into my eyes and tell me what you see.
I've been dead this whole time and you still don't love me.

Eren Jaeger was dripping from head to toe with bathwater, donning nothing but a towel around his waist as he hurried in frantic pace through the hallways of the bath house. In tow behind him was Armin Arlert, who looked just as bewildered (and red-faced) as he was. And trying desperately not to drop his towel.
"Oi. You guys!" he said loudly, demanding attention. "I heard Connie freaking out in the changing rooms just now - and was that [First] wandering around in here?!"
With footsteps that squelched with water and left shining puddles on the steam-slicked tiles, he approached the crowd of men that were, for some bizarre reason, packed tightly in front of the laundry room door.
" Guys? ..." Eren stared at them, dumbstruck. "What the hell are you all doing here? Gathered around like this... the fuck is going on?"
None of them answered. Once Eren took the time to visually survey the situation, he immediatel

so you could finally get the answer
you needed to hear
because silence has always been stronger than words.
I've never stayed bulletproof
because you were my personal oxygen
whenever your lips touched mine
and your cold skin felt like heaven on mine,
but we would always make beautiful music together
with a broken chord
because we were never fully alive.
I overdosed on confidence
and now my secret is that I have none left.
(You were always my heart,
but now since you're gone
it's like nothing ever mattered.)
You always told me I would run away too far,
so I walked because I thought lights would guide me home.
(I always grew up in a family that didn't care enough
or cared too much,
my father always screamed
and my mother only accused
but never apologized.
My family was always broken,
but we always thought that being broken was a new accessory.)
Our hearts have always been mute,
but being broken is the new beautiful.

There is nothing more devastating
Than losing a loved one
Knowing that you will never
Hear their voice again
Or feel their touch, or see them smile
It's heart breaking
Time is a powerful thing
One that is forever
Time takes everything
And makes it it's own
They say that time
Heals all wounds
Time only created more scars
As the ones that it caused before
Begin to heal
To lose a loved one
Is a tragedy all in its own
But don't be sad
You will see them again
Because while time takes everything it can
Will take you too.
Time takes everything
And eventually it even takes you.
