There's something about you..There's something about you
But I can't put my finger on it
You're different from the rest
But in a good way
I don't know what it is about you
But you pull me in
Maybe it's your eyes, full of happiness
Or your long, wavy hair
It could even be your smile
One that is so big and bright
I don't understand why I feel like this
Every time I see you, talk to you
Or even just imagine you with me
My heart races 10x fast
It only happens when I think of you
You entice me, make me happy
And most of all, you love me back
That must be it.. No one else could love me back as much as you do
No one else would put up with me
I guess that's also why I love you so much too
I'm glad you're different from the rest
Because compared to you, the rest are like clouds in the sky
All pretty much the same and something you see every day
Please stay different from the rest
And please stay with me too.
I love you.

She is Me.You're distancing yourself againShe is Me.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I'm afraid she won't be following you this time
She can't 'Forgive and Forget'
She'll forgive because it's the right thing to do
But the scar will remain as a reminder
She doesn't want to be with the people who hurt her
Like you did
She doesn't want to get close to those who don't trust her
Like you do
She doesn't want to be betrayed again
Stop questioning her all the time
Maybe that's the reason she doesn't speak?
Not to get close to anyone
Not to let information leak
Not to have anyone know, what she has become
She's too fragile
Very soon she may break
Yet she still searches for someone
Who might hear her silent plea?
She is someone, whose pain you never notice
She is me.

StrengthStrength is not something you can measure,Strength3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
True strength is a real treasure.
It isn't how much weight you can lift,
True strength is what you call a gift.
Strength is not about how much you can destroy,
It's about how you can make people feel joy.
It's about how much you can take,
And trust me what I'm telling you isn't fake.
If we wouldn't have the ability to endure,
We would be knocked out before we could act for sure.
Strength is the ability to handle the stuff life throws at you,
Trust me everybody will at one time feel quite blue.
People are sometimes weak and vulnerable,
We are just humans, we will never be invulnerable.
If our biggest weakness, is being hurt by the once we love,
Then we are the strongest people in the world, that's what I'm sure of.

"It's better to have loved and lost,
then to never have loved at all."
I guess that all depends
on how the loss occurred.
Was it something that
eventually faded away
or did it end up turning,
into some form of hate?
"There's a fine line
between love and hate."
There once was a time
when you used to love me,
way back when,
you probably hate me
because we're no longer friends.
But that's fine,
because I kind of despise you too,
for all the pain
you put me though.
"True love will never die
and will always stand the test of time."
I guess the love that I knew,
never really was true,
because if it was,
then it would still be alive.
There would still be a "we"
instead of just you
"Time heals all wounds"
which is a complete lie.
A total bunch of crock
said in love's demise.
Although, it might sting a little less
eventually given some time.
But it will never completely mend
and a part
will always remain
It's just so

You don't need me
That's why you left
I'm the one that needs you
I don't feel the need to change myself to make you want me again
If who I am isn't good enough, then maybe I'm better off alone
I wish things could go back to being like they were
Me and you
Fitting perfectly together
Letting everything disappear
I know I'm young
People tell me I'll find someone else
That I'll love again
But I don't know if I can be that open with anyone other than you
I'm too guarded
I have trouble seeing myself with anyone but
I know how to be strong and that I shouldn't let one relationship ruin me
But in all honesty
I am lost without you

To tell you who you are
So you might know yourself
In the eyes of your other
Love is lonely when you're alone
when your other has gone
to a place where you can't follow
You have been left behind
Love is lonely in a group
from who none has whispered
sweet nothings into your ears
that echo inside your skull
Love is lonely
if there is nobody
who cares to share
their love with you

And I mean right now,
That I have stopped caring
I have stopped caring for one specific thing,
I have stopped caring about waiting for you
These words have no hatred
Their purpose shouldn't intend any pain,
And they hold a thought from me deep within,
Did you know that it took me a while to wake up?
I was so drowned in these possibilites,
I was washed in the pipe-dreams,
And then I was thrown into the heart-breaking voids
It drove me crazy,
And I had hopes, even if I thought some of them were foolish,
Those hopes made me still believe that one possibility,
Then there was a shift that changed these hopes,
And I had finally opened my eyes
It had hurt for a small amount of time,
No later than a night,
And I kind of wish that I never became conscious,
But it was best for me either way
You still hold some of my hopes and such,
But I just have to be aware,
And I just need to help my heart with my head,
And think before I fall
Because at the end

I can't wait,

I Like BeginningsI like beginningsI Like Beginnings3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When anything seems possible
When we have yet to discover
Each other's vulnerabilities and weaknesses
What buttons to push causing the other pain
And to use it far too often
I like beginnings
When there's no bad history or tears shed
Ill recollection that creeps up on us
When faced with our own insecurities
And worthless self doubts
Of the past
I like beginnings
When love is a possibility
And just the thought of you
Leading to something new
Comforts my broken heart
Helping the soreness to mend
I like endings
An end of a horrid chapter
With hardly any good memories
To remember or reflect
Making that previous beginning come
To an end
For YouListen:For You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I would be lying if I said that I didn't
Think of you every time I close my eyes,
That my mind doesn't wander to thoughts
Of you whenever I'm lonely,
That I don't whisper your name
While I sleep.
Truth be told, I am inevitably in love with you.
In a way that makes my heart skip a beat every time
I see you smile, every time I hear you laugh.
It's the fact that I still get butterflies whenever
You lightly whisper my name in my ear
That lets me know we are something more.
Nothing has ever seemed so comforting than
The feeling of your arms wrapped around my waist.
I smile up to you as we share a brief connection of
Soft lips and grazing teeth that makes me swoon.
Believe me when I say that I think of you
Every time I close my eyes,
That my mind always wanders to thoughts
Of you when I'm lonely,
That I whisper your name while I sleep.
Believe me when I say that I love you,
That there's nowhere I'd rather be
Than with you.

Not the mask that hides the shy
I want their inner feelings,their core
I want to know their hearts, do they feel remorse?
I want to know their fears, their worries
I need to know who they are, their stories

That I always meant to tear apart

The only person my heart could sing to
And now you're gone because of the unforeseen
But believe me I see you when I dream
I never left; I'm still staying here
For you, and only you my dear
You left by force, I stayed by design
For my missing heart will Not Resign

Where everything felt so right
Holding these hands with you
Can you tell me now where those spaces have gone
Where everything felt so real between us
Holding our heart up high for the rising dawn
Can you take me back to erase my mistakes
Where everything still existed between us
Holding our feelings so tightly but it wouldn't break
Bring me back to the place where you are
Guide me to the fallen angels
Hold these pieces and tell me you aren't so far

I didn't listen
I held on tight
Tight to the thought of being with him
Tight enough I wouldn't fall off at a single whim.
I should've listened.
Listened to you.
He was trouble.
But I'd never be through.
I wanted more.
So much more.
Enough for him to feel the same.
It was an infatuation, he said.
I'd be over him, but instead
I craved his attention.
I craved his affection.
I was stupid.
I lost myself
For a time or two.
I lost myself in him
When I should've listened to you.
I was dumb.
I fell for him
Harder than I'd planned.
You said it would happen.
I thought it was a lie.
I regained control once more
It took less time than I thought
He was one.
He is one.
People don't change.

It will make you jump around
Enjoy the music for the words

The empty street, the soft porch light, your hazel eyes are all I can see.
You lean down slowly, gently, letting your soft lips brush against mine.
You do it again, again, and again... We completely lose track of the time.
On my toes, your fingers lost in my hair, my body moulding to fit yours perfectly.
You kiss my neck, my heart hammers away, your lips tasting like heaven to me.
I was eighteen and never been kissed, until you came along, weakening my knees.
With you it was perfect, as it should be... Would you kiss me once more, please?

This life was a different song
Never trust me

You were my reason to dance
You can have my heart,baby
You can even take my soul away

You can never have my body tamed

Living a Lie.Living a Lie.Living a Lie.3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You say things you don't mean when you're angry.
You call me a waste of space and that you can't stand me.
When the dust settles you say you don't mean it.
You say I should know better than to believe it.
As usual I foolishly upkeep your illusive hold on me.
I allow you to mute my thoughts and take control of me.
You promise and reassure me that it will never happen again.
That this is the last time and you will put it all to an end.
But I know promises only comfort fools,
Who readily allow others to pull the wool
Over our eyes because it is easier to swallow the lies.
Can it be a mistake if it happens more than twice?
Despite my preaching I can never take my own advice.
I've realised that this aggression is a part of you
And because I can never dare to part from you.
I have to believe the love you have for me is true.
Sometimes you have to take a lie not for what it is
But for the truth and reality it suspends.
Withdraw your vengeful tongue and revert it into a kiss.
