Days pass on like years
Without you by my side,
Life feels so dull
Without your mesmerizing eyes and goofy smile,
My heart pains with aching
Without the never- ending joy I have when I see you...
Missing your jokes,
The way you look at me with those eyes,
The way you talk to me,
The way you tell me how important I am to you,
The way you tell me that you love me...
It all points to being love struck,
But I'm scared to trust you,
To love you back,
To be open with you in a way I never have with anyone before....
You promise that you'll never leave me,
You promise that you'll love me forever,
You promise that you'll help me through anything,
But you know,
And I know,
That you have a tendency of breaking your promises...
Do You Remember, Love?Do You Remember, Love?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you remember, love?
How you would tempt me,
So expertly, so slyly,
Blinding me with desperation,
Or was it loneliness?
Oh, how naive I was,
How young and gullible,
Yet you twisted me and toyed with me,
As if I was your puppet on a string.
Do you remember, love?
How I fell for it,
I fell for your promises of happiness,
And your lies about my "happy ever after" with my prince.
It was pure bliss,
I was flying above the clouds with love,
Yet the love was so short lived.
Do you remember, love?
When your devious plot truly succeeded,
How you kicked me to the curb
With nothing but a chipped heart
And a flickering soul....
Do you know of the countless nights of tears,
Of the days full of guilt, regret, reminescense,
The times I walked around in search of who I used to be,
Without you by my side?
But, of course you know,
You sat there, observing me, so intently,
Laughing at my pain, my confusion.
Do you remember, love?
More importantly than anything else?

My heart is tearing
My soul is withering
My mind is straining
Because of my worry
About our future...
My mind tells me to be happy,
To be glad that you just might accomplish the impossible,
To encourage you to go for your dreams,
Even if those dreams don't involve me...
My heart tells me it's throbbing,
It's hurt beyond any help,
Because a life without you
Would shred it all to pieces...
My soul is at war with itself,
Knowing you could never give up such an opportunity
Yet terrified of that slightest possibility
That you will easily forget me and that love we share...
"If you love something,
Set it free.
If it comes back to you,
Its yours forever.
If it doesnt,
Then it was never meant to be."
That one question
Implanted into my mind is...
If I set you free,
Will you ever come back?

Your love for me,
Encompassed my heart,
Persuaded me to believe you
And fall for your dirty little tricks.
My trust for you,
Was something you didn't deserve.
I believed all your empty promises
And hallow words without a second thought.
Of knowing you were mine,
Knowing you thought I was the one for you,
Or so I so ignorantly believed
As you told me day after day.
So twisted yet so convincing,
Each fabrication poisoning my heart,
Without me noticing.
A gift to you,
So delicate and fragile,
Yet you threw it to the ground
And laughed as it shattered before your feet.
The person I thought I loved,
The guy I trusted my heart and soult to,
The boyfriend I never doubted...
Did you realize how you broke me beyond repair?
Innocence CrushedInnocence Crushed3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why must the tears fall,
Flowing down her cheeks,
Streaming down the the face of an angel,
Filled with despair and anguish.
She lays on the dirt floor,
Once so innocent, so pure,
A bird among the clouds,
Oblivious to the unknown world surrounding her.
Always laughing, smiling,
Her beauty dazzling.
She dances through life
Without a care in the world.
Where is that girl now?
He wonders as his eyes gaze upon her,
And her hair that has lost it's glow,
And her dress, tattered and in ruins.
Her fragile body shakes uncontrollably
With each of her cries of anguish.
Ever sob stabs his heart painfully,
Giving him just a slight taste of her pain.
And her eyes, oh, her eyes,
How beautiful they once were,
A vibrant blue, the hue of a peaceful stream,
Teeming with kindness and joy.
Now all he sees is gray,
The color of thunder clouds.
Her pure personality
Was ripped from her soul by a monster.
Those eyes stare at him,
Pierce through his body,
Yet he holds out his hand,
His eyes full of concern.

There are those days
That I can't believe how lucky I am to have you,
And then there are the days
That I have no clue how someone as crazy as you
Could have stolem my heart.
No matter what,
I could never fall out of love with you.
There's always that small part in my heart
That belongs to you and only you.
No one else can compare
To your electric blue eyes
Or your never ending humor,
Or even you confidence in everything you do.
Like the blazing sun,
You could never be replaced...
Yet you can't see how badly
I need you to take that step,
That leap of trust that I need
Your arms wrapped around me,
Holding me as if you'll never let go,
Keeping me intact when I feel like
I'm falling apart inside.
Those three simple words
That will make me fly above the clouds.
Nothing will help me more
Then hearing you say "I love you."
To keep me together
To help me through the tough times
Andbring my smile out on even the darkest days.

Clouds high in the sky,
Impending above her head.
It's gray pigment releasing the darkest feeling,
A mood of confusion,
Of being incomplete,
Of feeling lost,
Of the ultimate pain and sadness.
The clouds reflect in the girl's eyes
She stares at the clouds,
The aching overflowing in her,
Submerging her once innocent heart.
She can't help but wonder "Why me?
How could I have ever,
Deserved this pain?"
Staining the world drip by drip,
As the clouds release tears
Filled with despair,
The rain only patters on the girl's window
Tears stream down her face,
As she wishes that crying would make her forget.
She recalls his voice,
The one thing that used to sooth her,
Saying, over and over,
"I'd never let you go,
I love you, forever and always."
Thunder rumbles as loud as the screaming shot of a gun,
Blinding lightning rips through the sky,
Seeming terrifyingly beautiful.
The agonizing sky lets the thunder escape,

That girl over there,
Who is spoken about behind her back
About her flashy clothes,
Her ego as large as the universe.
Yet no one knows this is her only way of becoming that perfect person
She's always dreamt of being.
That boy, who fools around while playing sports,
Falling, tripping, knocking into other people on purpose,
Just to get a laugh out of the class.
Yet no one knows that he is ignored at home,
And being the class clown is his only way of receiving attention.
That girl, with dyed hair the color of blood,
And too many bracelets to count on her arms,
With a mask of a smile always on her face.
Yet no one knows of the scars underneath her bangles,
Or how badly she wants to shine, to be known, be seen
That boy who calls out in class,
Curses constantly, gets detention weekly,
Breaks the rules as if it's as easy as ripping a piece of paper.
Yet no one knows that it's all unintentional,
That he wishes he could be one of those average students.

The lights are out and I'm feeling manic
My heart is thumping in a shivering panic.
It's like I'm hitting, my all time low;
How many more; do I have to go?
Hello, hello, can you hear me speak?
I'm afraid my voice is getting weak.
My screams and sounds are growing quiet;
I need those pills; I'm growing tired...
Without them I'm colourless, just an empty face
Oh no, oh no, I'm in a dirty place...
I don't know how and I don't know why;
But it's just so hard to say goodbye.
When you need a feeling, when you need a high;
It's really easy to tell the lie:
'I'm fine, I'm fine, it's just a trial!'
But you can't hear, your own denial...
"Hello, hello, how low will you go?"

From all the tears.
Because of such unbearable pain.
In all the emotion being forced upon you.
As of what to do next.
Faith being questioned
Because you ask yourself,
Why would you be given all this pain?
What have you done to deserve this torture?
The waterfall of tears
Fall ever so gently
Down your cheeks.
Each droplet a portion of the pain
Tearing at your body,
Attempting to take control of your mind.
The emotion mounding higher in you
From all the stress, the worry, the pain...
It makes you question yourself:
What am I living for?
With each sob wracking your chest,
You wince in discomfort,
Yet you cannot stop
For the agony is too great
To be kept in any longer.
While the tears dampen your eyelashes,
You hold yourself as tight as you can;
The torment makes you feel as if your crumbling,
Being transformed to dust,
Blown away by each wave of pain.
When there are no more reasons to cry,
When your eyes are fresh out of tea

Is it this a curse or a blessing?
Should I cower from it or embrace it?
Is the joy, the pure bliss,
Really worth the trouble, the worry of being hurt?
The question lingers over my head day after day:
Will I get hurt again?
The love is there,
So tempting, so disarming,
The deepest part of my heart wants to reach out to it,
To relieve myself of this burden on my shoulders,
Because I know it will go away
Once I invite love into my heart.
I remember the feeling of love,
How I would be soaring above the clouds at every touch,
Every sight of him,
And I knew that he was there for me.
I think I'm in love,
Because I can't get over the sight of him.
I think he's right for me
Because he understands me.
I think he's my knight in shining armor
Because my heart quickens when I see him.
This all lures me in
To be held in the hands of love once more,
Yet I think,
Is my heart playing a trick on me?
Is this real?
Is this worth it?
Deep in my mind,
Doubt clouds my judgement,

I've got an angel
I see her every now and then
Just glimpses, but all the same
I know she likes to hide
But it isn't a carefree game
She hides behind fake smiles
Puts on a brave face
For the prying eyes to see
It takes everything she has
To leave the safety of her home
She knows the world for what it really is
She prefers to be on her own
She likes to look at the stars
And pretend to know her future
But she is kept inside by the fear
That comes with being undecided, unsure
She knows how to smile
And mask the emotions that she feels
No one would know that she is abnormal
Has a great many fears
I've known this girl my whole life
She stays well hidden behind figurative doors
And looking back in retrospect
No one really knows
How much darkness my angel holds.

Is it wrong
To miss those calls at night
That went on for hours on end?
To miss staying up until 1 AM
Not wanting to end our conversation?
To miss reminiscing over past memories together
Of the great times we had?
To miss feeling that I could trust you
With absolutely any secret of who I am?
To miss hurting whenever you were in pain
As if attached by our emotions?
Is it wrong
To yearn for those fights between us
About which of us loved the other more?
To yearn for those dates that were always filled with joy,
Laughter, wanting time to freeze at that moment?
To yearn for the way that, in each of our conversations,
The words "I love you" would easily slip in?
To yearn for that feeling we had together
That we could conquer any feat thrown at us?
To yearn for the way you came to me for comfort
To help you through those tough times?
Is it wrong
To wish for the good times of innocence
We had before love interfered?
To wish for those talks that made me feel important,
And that really convince

that you wish never end
Then there are moments
that couldn't go by fast enough.
Through at the times we have seen
and all the lives we have lived.
Time seems to be
the one thing that never changes.
Time likes to repeat itself
going hour by hour, second by second.
They say, today is history
but tomorrow is a mystery.
History likes to repeat itself,
so maybe tomorrow isn't such a mystery.
