to my ValentineWhat is this warmth inside my chest?
What has brought these things anew?
What is this smile upon my lips?
Though, it's not a "what"it's "who".
Who could possibly mend my broken heart?
Who could ever be the one
to bare all of my differences?
To my life's storm cloudswho's the sun?
Who's brightening my every thought?
Someone's in my heart but who?
Who's becoming my light when I'm in the dark?
That someone must be you.
You're everything I ever dreamt of,
And you're even better still.
I'd like to think you'd love we always,
So please, tell me that you will.
You're Perfect and you're Beautiful.
Don't you dare think otherwise.
Don't you try to give me arguments,
For in your heart, perfection lies.
I know I am in love with you,
I've never felt like this before.
One day I hope I get the chance
to prove I love you more.
Never have I met someone
as amazing as you are.
Please don't fret about the distance,
For in our hearts, we're not so far.
I never want our love to die,
Three Letters You never know when the wind will blow, or much less where it'll take you. I walked into the familiar classroom with an ambiance of solace, and I thought nothing of my masked pain. I sighed, and for the first time in the entirety of the day, I breathed in clean, untainted air. My lungs were no longer heavy, and there was no more restraint. This was the class I could let go in; here was where I could let my guard down. Isn't it awful when you're convinced of something that is only to be contradicted with irony? Well, awful it was! Little did I know upon walking in, we were to begin brainstorming for none other than a skit for Anti-Bullying. The original thought wasn't horrid at all; I actually was looking forward to an awareness project. However in doing so, we were to list common insults and responses. From the minute we were given said assignment, I knew the word I so awfully dreaded couldn't be far away. My ears awaited the painful word like dry land awaThree Letters2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
The Little GirlAll alone. Trapped.The Little Girl2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
In a world of strangers.
That's all she knows-
can't hide from dangers.
This God they've told her all about
doesn't seem to know
that inside she will scream and shout
begging to be let go.
She's helpless. Hopeless.
No one understands.
She's thrown into dark closets-
Shut up. Tied feet and hands.
Why is no one listening?
Doesn't she have rights, as well?
No. She's not the same as us-
So let's just damn her straight to hell!
She's just a scared little girl
who wasn't just like us,
She didn't fit in, in this world.
Ashes to Ashes. Dust to Dust.
Her love is not like ours so we-
will teach her that she is not free!
She's just a different little girl.
Her love must be a sin.
It's not as God intended-
It's give up or give in.
So outcast her and treat her wrong!
She must know, she can't belong!
This madness has gone on far too long!
for this sinning little girl...
She's corrupted. Tainted.
a sinner all her days.
Something called PrideThere will come a time in which the sea will cease to foam,Something called Pride2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For it is true, that nothing is ever really set in stone,
If ever the rainbow be painted monochrome,
And if ever the wind should, at last, cease its breath,
From my pride- then only- would I so much as roam,
For it's like how embers strive long after the fire's put to death.
Down this long and winding stream we've been rowing,
Countless suns and moons of roosters crowing,
Glowing, and growing- intense, the wind blowing,
I shall stand obstinate for what I believe,
If martyrdom should finalize me, quick- without my knowing,
Do not fret; I've at last been relieved.
OutcastsEternally shall we be branded wrong,Outcasts2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And perish not the label that we bear.
Forever we shall sing an outcast's song:
Ev'ry horrid, shameful note that lingers there.
Banishment and suff'ring all the blows,
And still we dare not let them break us down.
We've served a sentence only outcasts know,
Yet forever by their harsh words are we bound.
Because we are not like them, they believe
That somehow we are scarcely more than soil.
They think that pointed tongues and bigotry
Can make us all forget to whom we're loyal.
But love shall triumph alleven our war,
And outcasts shall be recognized once more.

We are all different.
We are not meant to be the same
So why should we be judged just for who we love?
We are all equal as people.
But we all have different lives to live.
It shouldn't matter if you love boy's girls or both.
Be proud of yourself no matter what anyone says.
Love is love gender be dammed!
The Burden of The BeatingThere exists a fate worse than death; that is life. O what a torturous thing it is; where brutality lurks in every aspect of breathingof beating. The thumping is a ticking clock. It is a constant reminder of time; reassurance in that life does, indeed, have an end. Eventually, the breathing will cease, and the bloody countdown of the drumming will be done. One day it'll all be over. In time, the suffering proves only temporary. Alas! Until the very end, we're doomed to endure the daily pain associated with being. Living on this dying planet is cruel and unusual punishment. Bigotry, hatred, violence, envy and evil linger everywhere imaginable. There is no escape. There is nothing to alleviate, but a fatal bullet, noose or gash. No way out but this. Survival is worse than death. The burden of the beating will continue, until the pulse and pain, thereafter, subside in turn.The Burden of The Beating2 years ago in Emotional More Like This

I beg for your attention.
I sit here waiting,

But I know,
this will never become a reality.
I am the 'Outcast'
I am the 'Freak'
I am the girl,

A friendship is as close as I will ever get to you.
What you don't know,
i'm in love with you.

I believe in God and in Christ
I trust the Holy Ghost
I try not to hate, try not to judge
I say my prayers and read the Good Book
I hope for a brighter future and pray for the children
I help out my neighbors
I'm there for my friends
Give time to the strangers
I stumble and fall
And every night I promise God
I'm sorry for all my sins, forgive me, I'm human
I promise to try harder
I'm a good Christian
I follow His word
Yet I'm of the damned, and I'm of the cursed
Because I made one "mistake"
A "mistake" I'll never be sorry for
I'm "Gay". . .

Nothing's here for sure.
Things like love that's "unconditional"
Turn corrupted and impure.
Things like that little girl you loved,
Things like your daughter's heart,
Nothing lasts forever, Dad,
You tore that girl apart.
She never meant to disrespect,
She just wanted you to see,
Through all the fighting and neglect,
I was to born just to be me.
Why couldn't you have understood?
Or tried, at least, to care?
Instead, we're giving up again,
I'll move on without you there.
You denied I was your child,
Because I'm not as you demanded,
I was thrown out of your life so fast,
I can't believe you've left me stranded.
Daddy, nothing lasts forever,
And I'll assure you, this I know,
Despite the bruises and the tears,
Still I am to reap what I sow.
Thoughts are buzzing in my mind,
How did things work out this way?
How could you just give me up
Based on the two small words: "I'm gay"?
I'm simply nothing in your eyes,
From me, apologies you'll never hear,
Dad, I promise,

So why are these tears,
Falling down my cheeks?
Why are my hands,
Stretching for you?
Why do I find,
That I can no longer hide,
These feelings I have had,
This whole time?
IntersectionIntersection2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stuck in a plane where idea's and opinions collide,
Where communication becomes a mystery itself,
Unable to keep balance with the flow of motion,
I find myself disappearing into existence,
My mouth moves but no words or sounds escape,
"What's my name?",
Tell me with ten words or less,
Explain the true identity of me in this colorless world,
What makes me stand out from the rest?
Am I an individual? Or an Illusion?
"Why am I living?"
Give me a hundred words within reason itself,
To explain my desires, thoughts, and dreams,
And why my path is forged with personal challenges,
And how will it end? The conclusion?
The only thing that always flies by is time,
I find myself slowly falling behind,
Trapped in a soundless white world,
I run as fast as I can,
Away from this crumbling ground,
Who am I?
Where am I going?
Who are you?
Where are you going?
Are we connected?
Or do we just pass by?

Your fairy tale has ended,
He's not coming back for you,
You're not Cinderella, who's glass shoe's on the floor,
It smashed into piece when he didn't love you anymore,
Sorry honey, the clock's strike twelve,
The magic's gone, welcome to hell,
In the end, he paired up with another princess,
Pick up yourself, pick up your mess,
Stop flipping through the pages, it's no longer your friend,
This fairy tale is over, the pages will only show you the end,
You gave it your all, you gave it your best,
I watched you fall, I watched you test,
In the end, he wasn't your soul mate,
Just wait and see, something might change in fate.

I have emotions, I'm a human too,
I have a skeleton, Just like you,
I make mistakes, we all do,
Even you, can make mistakes too.
Some lines I wrote inspired by spite,
It came from your words, a soul seeking a fight,
I don't want to cause trouble, I want to be in peace,
I don't know where the fire arrived, but could it cease?
All because we're different, our point of views not the same,
It's a challenge accepted, a meaningless fight through the day,
So, I raise my white flag, wanting an end,
I honestly don't like following, especially this trend.
We're stuck together, a twist in fate,
Versing each other, in a ridiculous game,
So I lay down my cards, and my poker chips too,
Because honestly, I don't have time for you.
Go ahead get mad, get enraged,
I'm done with this game, I'm past this age,
I don't like the movie Mean girl's, it's too cliche',
Just grow up and go on your way.
Thank you, Have a nice day.
Love's CrusadeIs it true that everything come with a price?Love's Crusade2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it not the fundamental element of all alive?
Sweet it is, numerous glorious tales it told;
To love require naught but a heart;
To be loved though, Require aught!
Winner takes all the prize;
While fools bound to live alone forever more!
Oh, how foolish is my heart
To be captured by him;
With Cupid's bow, golden arrow he shot
With such might, it pierced through my defence
Straight through my heart of heart.
I moved with an uncomprehending force;
Yet by fates' decree, He was bounded to love me not,
Oh fates, cruel fates.
Try as I may to capture his heart
And to sway him away from his course
Naught but sorrow I found
And grief followed right behind.
Such a little flame,
Methought it would be burnt out after sometimes,
Time flown and years passed,
The tiny flame still burn;
And one day, it burst!

The strings start to constrict my breathing,
My step's become sloppy with my arm's waving,
My mouth moves but the words aren't mine,
My eye's are dull they no longer shine,
This body is no longer mine to control,
As I watch in horror the game unfolds,
A cute face with a mouth of a poisonous snake,
Rumors fly and puncture someone with a stake,
My body dances along with the others alike,
But my mind is trying to stand a fight,
The fake smiles plastered on these empty dolls,
The silly but dangerous disguised name calls,
As I am trapped to play this game,
I soon realize I've lost my own name.

Show me beauty, hear my call,
Enlighten me with a heart shaped face,
Beautiful thick hair, with curves all in the right place,
Perfected skin that is tight on my skull,
Give me eye's that are never dull,
Allow them to show brighter than the stars,
Erase my ugly, erase my scar!
Allow me to be Aphrodite's crook,
From perfection beauty to an angel's Grace!"
I prayed to the mirror hanging on my bedroom wall,
With it's beautiful frame and standing tall,
"I shall show you real beauty," It said in a thunderous voice,
As I watched the mirror project an image, horror filled my voice!
"Mirror, Mirror on the wall,
Why have you shown me this hideous face?
No, nothing is perfect! It's all out of place!
My hair is thin, my eyes are to big,
My thighs are round, I'm ashamed of my shins!
Why can't I look like the Goddesses on a magazine,
This is image you portray me, it isn't real! That's not me!
You traitor! Your horrid fiend!
Why, why do you lie to me?
