WallsI build walls to keep things out.
I build walls to keep things in.
I build walls to keep things to myself.
I build walls to avoid questions.
I build walls to avoid judgement.
I build walls to avoid constant Slander.
I build walls to hide my pain.
I build walls to hide my past.
I build walls to hide my emotions.
I build walls to protect myself from the world.
I build walls to make myself seem strong.
But I can't hold up a whole strusture alone.
I become weak.
Everything builds up behind these walls
The walls crumble.
Everything that has been held back is released.
Walls are not easily built.
It takes time to build them up as strong as before.
Even after they are built.
It's not like a bone.
It doesn't grow back stronger.

In the face of beauty all they see is happiness
and they never think to look any deeper.
What they don't know is that after all the smiles
there are tears that fall every night to get her to sleep.
The walls that she has built up has kept everyone from seeing
the girl who has experienced enough pain to last her an eternity.
Everytime her eyes sarts to glisten with tears is because
she is thinking about all the things from her past.
and when she found out that they couldn't find him
she gave up.
her eyes started to glisten with all of her unfallen tears
and with one tear she whispered.
"I can't do this anymore."
and with that she ran to the forest behind her high school
With no one and nothing chasing her except the wind she ran
tears blurring her vision so she could barely she the shapes of trees
until she was deeper into the forest than anyone has ever been.
That was where she screamed out all her emotions only stopping
when the tears choke her. she fell to the ground trying to catch

Baby Blue eyes covered by a Dark Crimson
Rosey Cheeks lined with Rivers of Black
Flowing Blonde Hair stringy with Dirt

I WonderWhen I wake up in the morning with a smile on my faceI Wonder2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I know its because of you
so I look out my window and i see the sunrise.
I wonder if your seeing it too.
I wonder if you woke up smiling.
They say if you dream about someone it means they miss you.
I wonder if you dreamt about me.
I wonder if I had slept would I have dreamt about you?
I wonder if you know that whenever I'm not with you,
my body aches to be held by you.
My heart beggs to be close to yours.
Whenever I'm not with you I just want to be with you.
I may be falling hard this time.
But I don't care.
Because I know that you'll be at the bottom to catch me.
And I couldn't feel more comfortable falling for you.

I see you in my nightmares
I miss your laugh
I miss your smile
I feel so vulnerable
I feel so empty
I won't forget you
I won't forget us
I still have memories
I still have hope
I die inside when I see you
I die inside when you don't see me.
I know you've forgotten about me
I know you've erased me from your past
I have green eyes
I have tears
You have blue eyes
You left me behind
I'm still here
I'm still keeping my promise
Forever and Always
I still Love You.

We started out as perfect strangers.
Connections made us Friends.
Communication made us closer.
Words brought us together.
Sports gave us common ground.
Feelings made me Love you.
Actions kept us together.
Family broke us apart.
Connections kept you away.
Words crushed the friendship.
Sports seperated us more.
Communication pulled you farther away.
Actions helped you lose all respect.
And once again we are perfect strangers.
Cigarettes and Aviators 2Her lenses reflected the light awayCigarettes and Aviators 22 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
She smoked a pack a day
He wouldn't notice the smoke or the smell
All he knew was that she was cute as hell
She looks in the mirror as she puts on her lipstick
Loves her reflection yet all she can think about is
Why did he pick a girl like me?
Others are so much better. Doesn't he see?
Apparently he doesn't.
He fell in love with the Aviators and Cigarettes
He knows that she is far from perfect.
Something tells him that she is the one for whom he has waited so long
Yet, it can't figure out and it something he can't put his finger on

and with each turn about them
only nothing is easy.
With work there are gems
in lumps of coal
but a few thousand turns
it might take to mold.
Making a match so they won't burn,
with embers instead to keep bodies heated.
everything lying on the last pirouettes
hope the final curtains are closed
by the time the world sets.
that love is not dead.
