If Only Paper Could BleedThe idea of my blood
No longer in my veins
Brings relief with shame
Even though my blood looks better every moment
Life must go on
Tis the reason
Why I write
This paper holds my pain
Not all, but some
Till another day
The words dance across the lines
A ballroom setting for one
For two's pain intermingling
Can cause a tragedy
Sometimes they mock me
Just the same
Cause the music won't play
My words betrayed me
Thrown into my face
Reminding me of the failure
I have become
The dance should continue
Their feet will bleed
Even if only for a while
At least it is not me
Crimson stains are left on the floor
Lines begin to run
If only it were that easy
If only the paper could bleed for me.

Lie or Run Game
Nowadays they continue to stop believing,
Having many wishes, but after all just leaving
All the sweat in building their own castle is in vain
Once called "truth or dare", now it's "lie or run" game.
Talents, dreams, hopes..all lost in mirages,
What's the point if there are no goals?
People quit thinking of what they are good at
It is just the cruel societie's true fact.
I bet you,a coward, ever played "Truth or Dare"
But in the end you said it is not fair
To be honest and courageous, leaving behind a golden name
So that's why you have chosen "Lie or Run" game.

I had a dream I walked through a field.
I was hot and cold and sad and bold.
The field was green the sky was blue,
and then I saw you.
the flowers blowing with your hair.
A smile upon our faces.
Felt your warm embraces.
Trapped between to worlds.
Sad and happy.
Don't Ever ChangeDo you ever feel alone?Don't Ever Change3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Just because your different?
Do you ever feel that people just dont understand?
Just recently I came out
It's a different kind of feeling
Sometimes it's weird
But allow me to just make one thing perfectly clear
So I like girls big deal
So I like boys big deal
So what I like boys AND girls big freaking deal
Dont feel alone
Dont feel like your a freak
You are unique
You are handsome
You are beautiful
Dont change just because someone wants you to
You are YOU
Be you and do you because they is no other person who could take your place <3

Come on!Step up!
Don't be shy.
All of you pups,
Everyone can have a try!
Welcome to my place
Welcome to my home
You've left the race,
You're free to roam.
Use me, abuse me,
Then leave me all alone.
It don't matter, you see,
I'm just a stepping stone.
When you leave me for someone better,
I won't show a bit of surprise.
I'm something of a love Vetter,
I won't let you see the tears in my eyes.
The middle-man is who I am,
you break my heart when you find your true lover.
That's the way it works, my man,
Then words you'll say I've heard ten times over.
So sad, so lonely,
Taking any love I can get.
So sad, So homely,
say the word and I'll do it.

Now don't lie
When you say you didn't cry
The look in your eye
When i try to say goodbye
Gives it all away
When it rains
I now feel the pain
And understanding just doesn't cut it for you
Now, that I feel It, too.
I now know that our breakup was a mistake
And I want to make it up to you
Everything I do
Will make you blue
I don't wan't to be away from you
Even for one day
I miss you
The pain you endured
I was your cure
But now you're broken
Because I've spoken about it
And now you can't stand it
I don't blame you for hating me now
You can scream it up on the rooftops
If you'd like
You can lock your heart away
You don't have to sight me out, anymore
Everything is said and done
Because everything is better with you
In everything I do
No, I don't want to be away from you
But what can I do?
Tell me what i can do
MonsterI once knew this girl.Monster3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Such a beautiful girl.
Once so happy and high on life.
Nothing would stand in her way.
This girl was full of care.
Always wanted people to be happy with her.
Tried not to be so mean.
Trying to be so very nice and maybe create a laugh.
But what has happened to this girl?
Well she has faded with the black from the abyss she has fallen in.
Nothing to get out,
This beautiful girl who never felt the pain,
Her soul eaten by the monster, Love.
She was never to be heard of again.
So who was this girl?
And what made her fall?
This girl was me.
And the push was from the woman she loved.

I want my life to transform into my favourite novel
Page after page, written with passion and emotion,
The reader being captivated from beginning to end
Words turning shivers into a craving demand.
I wish my life were a favourite song
Orpheus, on a stone, singing it all day long
The mystique inside of every single note
Bringing life and changing the whole world.
If only life could be my favourite poetry
Giving birth to unheard fantasy and purity
Liberating humanity from fears and chains
Metaphors and epithets breaking tears.
I wonder when my life may be a painting,
On an infinite canvas, yelling for admiring
Covered on the surface in rainbows
Containing mirrors reflecting shadows.
So where have you gone, my talented writer?
I thought, for beauty, you were a fighter
Did the blue blooded ink dry, did the pen fly?
Or have you lost your confidence in the virtue of write?
And where are you, my golden musician?
Have you turned into a dusty magician?
Disappearing so fast from here to nowhere

hidden away in the back corner
behind the sofa, or bookshelf
somewhere usually out of sight
but everyone knows
they sense it
it is an ever noticeable presence
as it lurks
off everyone it touches
other emotions surface
but it smothers them
it engulfs everything
it pulls in the wearer
as you wear the emotions
it consumes you
till nothing is left but,
Love (2)Love (2)3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That indescribable feeling
the on that haunts all
in one way or another
you will eventually fall
You will meet that one person
that makes your insides do butterflies
the one you want to spend all your time with
and that makes you hate it when it comes to goodbies
They'll never leave your mind
and you'll trust them with your heart
THey'll be your dream come true
and you'll love them completely, every piece and part
Your heart beats faster
and your breath quickens when they're near
this feeling is different and new
its good but you also feel fear
You're afraid to be broken again
You're afraid they'll leave you
You're afraid of that excruciating pain
You're afraid that none of this will be true
But that's what Love is
it's everything you want and all you see
But it takes all your trust
So you'll pray "Please don't break me."

Such a silly thing,
Makes you crazy.
Makes you shaky.
Makes you nervous.
Makes you blush.
We wish for it.
We pray for it.
Some find it.
Some cry for it.
Such a silly thing.
Maybe, just maybe,
It may not be so silly.

It's the same thing that gives my enemies such evil delight.
It's the same thing that gives my lover such a fright,
It's the same evil thought that I am thinking tonight.
Even you reader, would you miss me if I left?
If I just stopped writing poetry, left this account bereft?
Would anyone, anywhere, miss me if I left?
If I left for good, because with a blade I am deft.
No one would miss me...
No reason to, no one loves me.
No reason to, no one even likes me.
It's just a fact that no one would miss me.

Anger fuels me
Driving me to the day
Where things go my way
Revenge I seek

His life I will take
For what I could have had
The day I long for
Is just around the bend
Suicide bringing me
My inevitable end

So much time has passed since I felt your soothing touch on my skin
Songbird songs sung me sweet reminders in your absence
Your icy glare that shone against my dark pupils
That sweet whisper that clings to my ears,
Lingering for a moment but making its mark
That seductive tongue slithering against my flesh
Before you sink your teeth in
Oh dear friend, it has been ever so long.

I talk about myself,
Yet I feel I'm lying.
I smile so brightly,
Yet I'm dying inside.
I say it doesn't hurt,
Yet I cry myself to sleep.
I'll tell you good advice,
Yet I won't listen to myself.
I'll say what you need to hear,
Yet I won't face the facts myself.
I'll tell you that it's alright,
Yet everything is falling apart.

Reflect, reflect on all you've known
A child's fear and tears of home,
Stab that shadow, you are alone.
Cross your heart,
Hope to live; you can't have what you have yet to give
Regret, regret, all you've done
An iron will and a throwing stone,
Cast the light away, forever it has shone.
She's DoneShe's DoneShe's Done3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She was the girl everyone thought was a bit strange.
She didn't let anyone in.
She kept to herself, so no feelings were hurt.
She wasn't happy, but she plastered that smile on her face.
She knew what was right but she kept herself from it.
Something held her back.
In the back of her mind, she knew she would just get hurt.
So, maybe she's afraid to fall without being caught.
Maybe she doesn't want to take a chance because she is done.
She is done with the hurt; she is done with the tears.
She can't do it anymore.
No matter how hard she tries, she is left hurt.
She is left crying.
She is left with no hope left in her.

With my knees on the floor
Falling for the same girls
Always craving for more
I won't follow the chains
And the tracks that you leave
Always staying the same
Never living for me
Because one after the other
You're all playing me well
Slipping me into slumber
And then casting your spell
I can't stay on these strings
As they're cutting through flesh
You say dance you say sing
And I'm trying my best
But I won't live this life
Always paying your dues
You can bark you can bite
But I won't fight for you

Ladies and gentleman, sincerest greetings.
You may recognize my familiar face.
I've been searching for different meanings,
From place to place to place to place.
Years I've wandered searching, never finding;
You may ask why I behave this way.
Well, through all these years we're winding
Winding through time, through earthly days.
You've only known me for just a while,
Not long at all; we've only just met.
You haven't seen my hardest mile,
My deepest pain, my worst regret.
Tedious you find it; noble, I say!
I swear to you, I'll find truth in this Earth
One day; that beautiful, wondrous day
To prove to you that I have worth.

Weakened by the pain of years.
I always search but cannot find
The source of all my bitter tears.
I see a light, an anchor, a hope;
I limp faster, relieved by the sight.
I found a gentle, downward slope
Like a rescue from a blight.
I lean on you, no longer afraid;
Finally I have found relief.
Tears dry, memories fade,
Like wind carries a wilted leaf.
But in the end, it wasn't true
You held my heart yet let it die.
My anchor became my noose;
My trust was blinded to your lie.
How could I be so ignorant?
You pledged to never leave my side.
There's none to blame but myself
"She believed when he lied."
