Just so...You pick me up and put me on the highest pedestal you can find,
Just to knock me down.
You put me in the shop window for everyone to see,
Just so they can mock me.
You tell me the world is my oyster, and I am the pearl,
Just to trap me inside.
You lift my heart and tell me its a gem,
Just to break it like glass.
You give me the good news first,
Just so you can hit me with the bad.
You give me dreams and hopes,
Just so you can crush them like a bug.
You do this all,
Just to make your self feel better.
Longing LoveI'm listening to the sad love songs on the radio, and my heart whispering your name.Longing Love11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trying hard to block you out, I stare out the window and watch the rain.
But oh! How I wish you were here, you could take away the pain.
Your soft lips would touch mine; your warm skin would surround mine.
And I'd be happy.
Snap out of the dream world, I have to command myself.
Thinking about you all this time could not be good for my health.
I've been so close and yet so far.
Those moments we shared, I know they were brief, but yet they replay as I try to sleep.
And I find myself smiling, no control do I have.
You've stole my heart, and weirdly I'm

Hoping that one day that would be his story.
All day and all night he worked himself to be the best,
Put his passion to the test.
Then one day he got a break,
A unknown fighter, against a flake.
With the dodge of a punch and the flick of the hand,
For the first time he was a winning man.
Notcied by a guy who looked like a bum,
Told he would train him, to be the one.
With the nod of a head and a shake of the hand,
Could there be a champion in this young man?
Blood, sweat and tears went hand in hand,
With new found titles, 'he's our man!'
He rose higher and higher on his winning str

See the light, but as I walk it gets further away.
You are golden, but I'm scared to touch you incase you break like glass.
Why do I feel alone in a room full of strangers, why do I feel like the only one to walk this earth?
Inside my heart feels heavy, but my body feels hollow, one breeze and I might break.
I feel lost, I feel alone but yet I know you are there.
Please always be there.

Long black hair, that falls gentlely down her back like a waterfall, coressting her pale white skin.
Her deep brown eyes outlined heavily with glitter, and gold and toped wih thick black mascara, like heavy black feathers they flutter over her eyes. The same eyes that could lead a man to there demise with just a wink.
And under this perfect shell, a body that some would die for, a body that kills some, but yet it hides a broken

They try and try to say it's mine
But it's not, it's theirs
And even though it makes me blind
I will always, always try to find
The lies have painted my life story
And now our ending will be gory
He is my black and white
So many colors were the web of the spider
He was my colorless fighter
I saw the lies
And beside him I fought
Meanwhile I sought
The ending to their lies
Even though blood is thicker than water
Even though I am their daughter
They killed me with their colors
But they were beautiful colors...

Crazy how I truly believed that I loved you right down to the core.
But now I see you, and something's not right, I've lost all feeling.
Thoughts of you don't seem to keep me up all night.
I told my self you have to be the one, all the moments we shared how ever small, they used to keep me dreaming that you were the prince I would meet at the fairytale ball.
But now know those feelings of wonder and love, have seemed to disappear to the heavens above.
And I feel remorse for those feelings I had, the ones that made my skin tingle and hair stand on end.
And those missed heart beats when you said my name

Killer QueenShe's that girl you'll want to know,Killer Queen6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
She doesn't make it rain, she makes it snow.
She can be fully dressed, in nothing but a vest
and a pair of white high heels, and still walk with added zest.
With a glass in her hand and a man 'round her waist,
She's got a killer instinct, and a extravagant taste.
She'll wine and dine at your demise,
But you'll fall hopelessly in love with her eyes.
She'll kiss you, and you'll feel fireworks,
And then leave with a devilish smirk.
She'll crush your heart in the palm of her hand,
And then laugh as it was part of her plan.
She'll watch you burn without a flame,
And play with your life like its a game.

But good things come to those who wait,
But waiting is the part I hate.

I mean, I think about you anyway. Why should I have to see you, too?
It's already rubbed in my face countlessly by the little things.
The way I go out in town and see where we carved our names into that park slide. Driving by that school building only reminds me of how we thought and fought right outside of it. I think about you no matter what I do, who I'm talking to, and what I try.
You are a fixed part of me.
BUT. When I can't see you, I can convince myself that you still care somewhat. That I still matter.
To an extent, I can even ignore you.
But then I have to see you again. See the hate in your eyes.
Realize that whatever it is we had is gone and I still don't even know why.
What the hell did you do to me?

I don't know or care what you're talking about; It doesn't matter. No matter what it is, when it started, how it ended or what it did, it started the same way.
Someone took a chance. Someone did something without thinking, without pausing. Someone out there just did something without wondering over the consequences.
Someone jumped without looking to see where they would land.

I don't care what you've done. I don't care what you've said. I don't care how many times you've lied. I just don't care.
You could have killed a man, and I wouldn't care. You could've poisoned me and I wouldn't care. You could do anything to me and I wouldn't care.
I care about what you're doing right now. Standing here with me, telling me the truth. Doing the right thing; that's what matters.
To me, it doesn't matter what you've done. Only what you're doing now.

"What do you mean?" she asks him, surprised. The fingers of her left hand are braided with his; he lifts them up to eye-level, studying them intently.
"You have your art. Your stories. You could leave here, use them and support yourself. You can find a way out of this hellhole." he drops their hands suddenly, letting them swing between their bodies loosely. "I'll never leave this place. There's nothing for me outside of the city gate." His hazel eyes flit across her blue ones before hitting the horizon once more.
"I'm not going to leave you alone here." Her eyes blaze like ice on fire.
He flashes her a brief smile. "You've been wanting to move from here since you were eleven. I wouldn't stop you."
"You wouldn't have to."

Brilliant or Broken?I have many eccentricities.Brilliant or Broken?10 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I dislike being touched. I make a mess of my things, but hate it when people try to fix them. I can't stand the smell of Febreze. I hate the color yellow and the color white. I do stupidly brave things one day and I'm a coward the next. I hate people purely on instinct. I dream things that happen later on. When I picture people I know in my mind, I use a specific color only assigned to them. I can't sit comfortably without propping my left leg up on something. I haven't spent a solid week without chocolate since I was very little.
I dislike people; as a species, as a whole. There are very few select specimens that I decide I like more than the rest. Even then, I'm a bit of a compulsive liar. I never believe somebody else--even myself--unless I have proof. Sometimes not even then.
I am forever unsure of myself, and not in that normal way where you can be persuaded by a few kind words and a smile--no. I am unsure in the way that I know how horrible I am--more

I was only two at the time and more than a little confused. "What's 'peshal?" I lisped.
"Special, dear," she corrected absentmindedly, combing my auburn curls lightly. "It's when you're not the same as the others. It's when you're not only not the same, but you're also the only one like yourself."
"Is special a good thing, Mommy?" I asked innocently.
"I don't know..." she said, punctuating each word as if it might be her last. "It can be. I believe special is good if you use it that way."
I nodded sagely, knocking the brush out of my hair and my mother's hand. It made a distinct thump sound as it hit the floor. My mother laughed, surprised, before standing up from her perch on the bed beside me to grab it.
"Be careful, dearest," she scolded lightly, placing the brush on a large vanity in the far corner of the room. "You could break something important. Why don't you lay down now?"
