The Sleeping HeartA boy lies in bed in a hospital room. He's been in a strange coma for almost a week now. The people close to him asked the doctor what the cause was. The doctor stays silent for a second and slowly begins to tell them that there is some strange chemical imbalance in the boy's body. This kind of problem has never been seen before, he told them, but he had discovered what could possibly be the cause. He told them that it might sound strange, and unrealistic, but the boy had died of a broken heart. The boy's company couldn't believe it.
Before they said anything to the doctor quickly stated that he once had a depression patient that had almost similar signals and didn't improve with any medicine, or treatment. The doctor did tests on him for certain things, and none of them came out good. Until one week, someone started visiting him, and his symptoms quickly improved. That patient had fallen in love with this person and was better quicker than ever. The doctor had made follow up appointme
LoveLove can be many things,Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A rose, a poem, anything.
It can also to amazing,
Love has rebuilt walls,
And torn down habits.
It is killed off diseases,
Stitching things back together.
Love has led to wonderful people,
Just well as creating them too,
When they were down and wilted,
Reborn and lively.
Love eats away at our time,
Although it is worth it,
Because for her, you'd catch a million stars,
And bead them into a necklace.
Some people think it's just a myth,
They think it'll never happen,
But soon enough they will see
Love's truest and greatest powers.

Is happy and carefree.
But deep down inside,
You are ready to die.
No one knows your story,
They think it's all ok.
I know what has happened,
Because you were willing to share.
You suffer in silence,
Because you're afraid to speak.
You know you'll be judged,
If you tell them what happened.
Your way of comfort,
Is not the answer.
So I'll do my best to help,
And not let you suffer in silence.

begin with hating
everything that makes you
the person you are
curse anyone who
helped make being in your own
skin feel so ugly
let go of your old
cells; everything about
you is new today
take bad pictures and
laugh loud; being happy is
free (even when faked)
purge your surroundings
of negativity; now
it’s time for good vibes
accept yourself for
all you are - especially
the things that are bad
teach yourself that you
can change (just remember that
you do not have to)

I couldn’t feel anything but the pounding
in my head and the butterflies in my tummy
and for a second there, you had me going
you really had me thinking you loved me
but all summers end;
you left to make room for autumn
and had no extra space in your life for me
(but you could still fit everything you gave me into your back pocket;
every kiss, every touch, every whispered word)
I know you could carry the weight of my hand in yours
one by one you caught my butterflies
until I felt nothing for you at all
you had held me enough times for me to know
Too IndifferentHate me, I don't careToo Indifferent3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Hate me, if you dare
I am who I am and I won't change
I won't take back a word I meant
Despise me, say I am deranged
Since to your world order I never bent
Mock me, I don't care
Mock me, if you dare
Your words mean nothing to me at all
Soon your wrath will fall back on you
Insult me and yell at me and squall
Smoke and mirrors, in the end, off they blew
Charge me, I don't care
Charge me, if you dare
Blame me for all things I committed
And for all I have not done
Are you better if I admitted
Them? Too bad, but you still have not won
Bark, little dog, bark
Bite, little dog, bite
Try, little dog. I won't fight with you
You're too indifferent to me
You're not the first, not the last one, too
Who can't (under)stand the way I chose to be

May be unknown to many,
But will rise to the top.
A band with only good intentions,
Yet has been hurt,
But never backing down.
Speaking from their heart,
Knowing they want to make a difference,
In this falling world.
Music that has cleared the thoughts,
Don't like this band,
Because they've only heard the silly songs,
The songs that get people happy and joyful.
If you've got nothing nice to say,
Don't say anything.
In my experience,
Blood on the Dance Floor has helped many,
Including my friend.
These songs have deeper meanings.
A good band,
Filled with people who want to leave a mark,
For the better,
For the people,
For the world.

everyone around you as towers

I can never reach those top cabinets,
not even on tip-toe
(asking for help is not my forté)
my hands are small, too;
when I hold them up to my friends’
sometimes my fingers only make it
halfway up theirs
and are still stuck soft,
I have the hands of a child.
the mirror tells me my stomach is
just fine but pictures
beg to differ;
love handles got too much love
and my belly pokes out just
below its button.
breasts stretch my shirts tight
and sleeves cling to my upper arms.
my affinity for sweets is visible.
that sweet tooth has gotten me
nothing more than a few cavities
and sometimes my mouth aches
but I still smile pretty.
my cheeks are too round;
maybe that’s why they’re so
all of the pinching they suffered
when I was little(r).
my nose is like a button from the front
and sharp from a profile and
has a smattering of freckles
TrypanosomosisI feel a morbid sickness curdling within me,Trypanosomosis1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
As if the acid in my stomach is pumping through my body
Instead of blood from my heart,
But my heart became stagnant long ago.
The apathy and lethargy of my existence
Is wearing me ever so thin like a crushed benchuca,
And it brought about this distressing ache
Just like their dreadful kiss of death.
But with this ill-acquired presence,
I've felt the agony of all these rusted nails
Torn through my feet and limbs,
The very nails that have forced me to remain in-place,
The very nails that have forced me to watch as the rest of the world
Sprinted farther and farther away from me.
I can hardly keep myself awake
And the skin upon my face is beginning to decay,
Am I experiencing a slow cremation?
Please, will someone only aid me in prying these dreadful nails out,
I can't take living in a world that never moves any longer.

playing broken games
to teach their hearts some lesson...
to break the links of their past chains.
Two sodden tragedies that were never understood
Somehow cross paths blindly,
wishing for something true and good.
Talk, fumble, absentmindedly
Hoping against hope,
heart, fall already!
But with both hands on the rope
we will never slip, too steady
Only wishing we could sway...
But we fight another day.
Getting to you, fumbling
for words that we can't say
Trying hard to fix things that can never go away.
Someday for sure one of their hearts
will wake up proud and say
Separated you are mere parts,
but together you're this way:
Meshed and molded, with the other
One completes what Two should have
tell of how you found another...
A soul that had been halved.
But that day had not yet come
and the two clung desperately
wishing for the other
to reach right in and see
that since they have the other,
they don't need but much else.
But this could hardly be,

is that if we were any closer together
the gods would have been jealous
of the way your lips would brush mine
and how my hand would fit with yours
and the way we’d see the moon and the stars
in each other’s eyes,
but not the sun;
(I am blinded by your beauty
but couldn’t stand losing sight of you).
I would encompass you in the maelstrom

dive deeper than we could in mere conversation.
