The Real MeI am who I am
and always will be
I need to get happy cause
this is me
theres no need to cry
just open my eyes
to find the person that I call me
Cause I now I am great
strong and wise
this is the person I need to be
and who I must find
I cant hide myself
need to come out and shine
be the brightest thing in the sky
and let everyone see the real me
I'm now proud to be
what I think is me

It started off all new to me
I woke up and all I could see
was boys all around
bunched up in a crowd
I was in a new place
surrounded with walls
Only knowing my name
that was all
Confusion ran through me
all through my head
I had woke in a place
and it wasnt my bed
I hadnt known then
what I know now
that my life was changed
and the trials strated NOW
They made me run through a maze
full of these thing
wanting to kill meeeeee
making shore I didnt get to theeeeee eeeeeennnnnnd
I had to figure out maps
that showed our way out
defend all my friends
and get to help
Wicked rescued us then
gave us a bed and and a home
brought us to safety
and we aaaaaaaaalllll made it to end
The Light TrainI'm travelling on the light trainThe Light Train2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's a train where you live in blinded bliss
Everything is perfect
You can't see the tunnel up ahead
The tunnel is dark
Filled with the terrible truths nobody wants to hear
The lights on the train go out
You are no longer ignorant
But it's too late to abort the train
And you enter chaos
Alter Ego: EvaLoves, Adores and worships the color pink,Alter Ego: Eva2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Doesn't like to think.
Loves the preps and jocks,
Joins in with the cheerleading flocks.
Sporty, happy and loves everyone,
Loves to tan in the sun.
Hates the color black and fears the dead,
School in general hurts her head.
Definitley needs a slap.
Loves sex all the time,
Her poetry doesnt even Rhyme!
Who is this girl who loves to put on a show?
It must be Eva's alter Ego!

Is there something wrong with my head?
They plead and beg,
And tug at my leg.
To take them to heaven,
For they haven't comited the deadly seven.
I try to close my eyes and fall asleep,
But they moan and groan and the children peep.
I grab the cross above my bed,
But then one removes his head.
I scream until I can't no more,
Then one pulls me down to the floor.
I try to scream again,
But one says "No more my friend,
We mean you no harm,
Just grant us our wish and you wont loose an arm."
The a flash of light,
Put an end to the frightful night.

Our Friendship could never end!
One small bicker,
Now were back together,
Best friends forever.
An Annoying quarel,
Now at an end,
One Rude Comment,
Our Trust starts to bend,
A big white lie,
Each others action we start to study,
A moment of thought,
As we fought,
Are they really worth it?
Friends no more.

As I sit outside thinking of the past.
The days are growing shorter,
And so is the passion for my lover.
The leaves are changing on the trees,
Everytime I talk to him I want to flee.
Halloween is close to us,
It's hard to talk to him with out making a fuss.
The summer was fun,
But I believe I'm done.
He's changed my mind too much,
To my sweater I clutch.
The smells of Autum steal my nose,
Time to push 'that door' close.
Time to focus on more important things,
Like school, grades and the fall fling.

is the best when its loud
because it drounds out all other sounds
it makes you feel completely alone
and then you began to sing in tone
you go from high note to low note
at just the right speed,
you continue to sing

you hear the beats of the drums
you relize the song end is near
the sound goes down

Melancholy lies upon moonlightMelancholy lies upon moonlight2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
An ash of cloud, a veil of smoke, covers but the sun in the sky
Watching in silence, in fear, in panic while people around me die
Tears, but trickles, but drops, now falling from my face, help is on its way
Timing? Bad luck? I wish it wasn't happening at all or even today
What we all saw were the planes, what we all heard was the first tower
Too much to take in, even more to understand and devour
Pictures being taken, videos being shot, I believe help is on its way
Across to the other tower, the crash is where I lay my gaze
From below I don't see much, above but a senseless calm undivided haze
A prayer, a prayer to God, a prayer to my family, to my wife, now son
They say your life flashes before your eyes, that it happens even when you run
I saw it all, my regrets, my sins, my wishes, what I once dreamed
Wishing it all just a thought, that this wasn't happening and all that it seemed
Telling myself and others to not do anything, but to hope, to wish, and live
A distant rumble afar, dra

Through frosted window panes
I'm always getting older,
But I can't wish away the shame.
Every time I blink now,
More tears fall from my eyes.
Still looking for the answers,
Still hurting from the lies.
For every day I stay here,
I scratch a line upon the wall.
I don't sing from the balcony,
Just in case I fall.
I lost count of all the scratches
Days or weeks ago
Why do I bother trying?
I'm stuck with vertigo
A breath once a minute,
To fill my lungs.
This song I sing,
100 strokes to brush my hair,
Three bands to tie it in.
I'd like to dream of nice things,
But the nightmares always win.
Scarred skin upon a pillow,
A teddy clutched in hand,
Life's hard for an insomniac,
With sleep in high demand.
I'd climb out of the window,
Or crawl out of the door.
But it seems it's just not possible
When you can't breathe anymore.
Paint flaking off the walls
And ceilings falling in

You're the best sister a girl could ever be.
In good times and bad, you've always been there.
Guiding me and supporting me with care.
I only hope that I'm that good to you.
Because you deserve a brother who can be there for you.
For as long as I can remember you've been my friend.
Through thick and thin, you've helped me along.
This path I'm on is safe once again.
Thanks to you I'm where I belong.
Field of DreamsI am a lady of summer.Field of Dreams2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My skirts in fact,
are fields of grass,
my jewels mere flowers dotted upon my eyes.
A doting fancy in the shapeless clouds,
dances for me.
each flower a wish,
each petal a kiss,
light enough to float away,
on the gentlest breeze.
Both caress my skin.
I am nothing without this place.
A queen in my dreams,
but nothing when I wake.
I dream for longer each night,
and I'm finding it harder to leave.
I wear my heart,
but up my sleeve.
Mere wishes do nothing,
so again I must go,
and the nightmare of waking,
begins once again.
A jostle to wake,
a kiss to part,
sleep washes over,
and I'm back in my field of dreams...

EchoI whisper a word,Echo3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but not a sound escapes my cracked lips.
I brush the wall of my prison,
and my fingertips run uselessly over my chains.
My wrists are sore from rubbing raw,
and my arms are littered with cuts from many attempts at escape.
The word seems unfamilliar in my dry mouth.
My eyes run over this place slowly,
assessing any possible exit,
even though I know,
because this is the millionth time I've checked,
that there's none.
I can see it even when I shut my washed out eyes.
That's how long I've been here.
The image is imprinted on memory,
like a picture scratched onto the inside of my eyelids.
I feel empty.
I am empty,
in more ways than one.
I want to leave.
I need to leave.
The desperation burning like fire in my blood almost outweighs my hunger,
but only adds to my thirst.
Thirst for water,
thirst for freedom...
I'm dying here.
When they find this place,
there will be nothing here but chains,
and the echo of my empty voice.
The FirstThe first words were printed in blood,The First3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
though the first blade did not cut.
The first sheild did not protect.
The first promise was broken,
as was every other after that.
The first beauty went unseen.
The first kiss meant nothing.
The first rain was made of tears.
The first secret was told.
The first eyes were not for seeing, but for crying over things now forgotten.
The first light did not shine,
nor did the first flower blossom,
or the first rivers run.
The first star was just another light,
but it's home was always darkness.
The first affected was a mind.
The first broken was a heart.
The first destroyed was a soul.
The first lost was a life,
or was it a love?
They are but the same thing.
The first silence was not heard.
The first scream was unspoken.
The first note was played by the wind.
The first lies were sung in song.
The first king had no crown.
The first dancer, no feet,
and the first teacher knew nothing.
The first miracle was not miraculous enough.
The first dream was seen w

She has an abusive dad,

I spent forever talking her out of it,

I didn't finish my homework,

She's leaving her home,

Sorry if I care.
I'm sorry if I've used up all my makeup,

I like my security; my detached emotions for everyone around me, because it makes me feel in control. It prevents me from falling; from putting my heart on the line for something that's never gonna happen.
I tried getting close before, but my instincts told me to run away. It never felt right or true. Was it my fear of having to hurt him later? Or did the commitment just put me off it all together?
I don't believe I could ever find "the one" in this early stage of my life, but sometimes my heart mistakes it for infatuation. I just remind myself of my dying fear and I can refrain from it all.
But you. Why the hell you? It was just for a bit of fun; why can't my emotions take that? I don't love you, not even close, but I can't erase you completely from my mind. I can't let go and just pretend you were never there. I have refrain
Empty houseAn empty house doesn't need windows,Empty house2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
with no one looking out of them,
and no one looking in.
A knocker on a non-existant door,
an overused doorbell that chimes every hour.
A runaway carpet running down a hall,
but leading nowhere.
Scraps of paper scattered on the bedroom floor,
flittering with ominous delight,
as a breeze wafts through an open window.
The smell of dust in the kitchen.
That's not right,
A chill radiating from the gloomy fireplace.
That's not right either.
A sense of unfinishedness,
creaking from the floorboards,
and rattling up the faded walls.
I get the feeling they used to be green.
So did the garden,
now a confusion of tangled weeds,
and brown grass,
and the stale smell of rotting.
This house isn't empty,
no matter how many windows there are.
Love is but to gainLove is but to gain2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love is but to gain, and not forget
As I embrace the love of my life, the only love for the last time
We watch the last of the boats depart, further and further into the distance
My arms around her waist, her arms around me, we lay there silently
Wishing together, that time would only stop and see that we're happy
I take my eyes off the beautiful sunset, the only one in the world
With its colour and grace, of an orange so tangent in tone that it comforts
I notice a tear, two tears, a stream of tears weeping out of my eyes
Slowly but steadily, it drips onto her, calmly she still doesn't wipe it off
I bring her closer, to look her in the face, a beautiful face
I can hear her sobs, her soft tears now falling from her precious eyes
But for how long, has she been crying?
Closer I pull her, until our lips touch, until it seemed that time did stop
To stop, and watch this display of wish, of power, of trust and denial
How long had it been? Time did not matter to us now, only each other

My love, like the very blood in my body, is the backbone to my existance, and without it, I would not be here at this moment.
For you, my gemstone, I shall always love you, from the depths of my soul.

Sailing your sinking ship.

Beyond lights call
Despite all my travesties, all my shouts, all my tears, you rise up and fall
Is this all my fault, if it weren't for me, would this have happened at all?
All that we've been through, all that we've seen, ended fast in one moment by
That my help didn't change anything, that I couldn't do more than try
That you my friend, now gone from my life, by your side I am, shedding tears
Wishing upon every falling star, that I could turn back the clock, the gears
To hear the faint whisper of silence against my ears, and my heart to see
Further from what I can take in, around this was what it could only be
Loneliness without you, the cold bite of the darkened sky greets me here
Nothing next to me now, but you, closed are your eyes, and this fear
This fear of you, fear of me, fear of belief, broken now into a million pieces
Holding you by your hands, still warm with trust, hoping now it never releases
They say that fate, the path we walk onto, on it are we all set into motio
