and the feel of your hand in mine
Always remember how much I cared
and way my eyes would shine
Remember the moment of our first kiss
and the sadness of sweet tears shed
Forget the dreams and goals I missed
and hold tight to my smile instead
Remember the love that filled my eyes
as I looked on the face of our friends
Forget all the pain I held inside
and remember with time wounds mend
Please remember the moment I gave you my heart
and each moment spent lost in my eyes
Forget all the times I fell apart
and each moment I told you a lie
Remember that sometimes life gets tough
and you feel like you can't go on
Forget every moment life's been rough
and hold tight to the warmth of the sun
Forget every moment I left your side
and each time I pushed you away
Forget the choice to take my own life
and the words I couldn't say
Remember the brightness my smile brought
and the ring in the length of my laugh
Remember the length of time I fought
But forget that my he

At this thing in my chest

Your soft touch

Pluck each vein

I hate the way my scissors sting
I don't care for the way blood sticks to my wrists
The cotton itching against my opened skin
But I do like the feeling
The way I slump to the floor in reilef
My ignorance of the depth increasing
I don't like the pain
But I do love the feeling
The progress of the depth increasing
God, I love the feeling
Of the only peace I've known
That embrace that I have,
It may be the only one
The calming voice of skin splitting
The gentle smile of blood on silver
The only feeling of love I know
As the depth's increasing

Life was perfect. Maybe not what others
Would consider sweet bliss, but I was happy.
Nothing in the world could ever touch me
But life isn't perfect, and neither are
people. For this reason, I cannot help

Goodbye, Miss Evans, the little old lady from next door
Goodbye, Police officer, who greets me every morning.
Goodbye, little blue-jay, sitting on the branch just outside my window.
Goodbye, Charlie, the little tabby cat that lives under the house.
Goodbye, Mother, who after you lost your love, you became an alcoholic.
Goodbye, Father, who left a desperate mother and me to the deadly grips of debt.
I was once a child
Who would demand a beautiful song to

The DreamThe Earth was crackedThe Dream4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The world destroyed,
All laid in pieces
after the battle.
Fallen are the trees,
the buildings are torn,
but the people are
no where to be seen.
All is quiet,
eerie as night,
but all are awake,
yet no where in sight.
The souls are hiding,
in the fallen timbers they roam.
Waiting to be saved,
Waiting to come home.

no, open them
no, how do you see better?
it seems you're just blind...
or am I the one that made up her own reality?
(I wish I could throw you up,

or just like I throw up my food

and you can't purge a heart,
I always said I didn't want to forget you.
but you're leaving me no choice
and still I can't seem to let you go...
( I still don't want to)
I always loved the silence of when we lied on the grass,
because you used to fill it with your warmth
you were like your own star
but now is like I'm freezing
and I can't find the star that you used to be.
Baby you took my heart
you know it's with you
how can you forget?
that's the reason it's broken.
(leaving my heart on a basket full
of dust isn't what I really wanted)
I'm tired of hearts getting broken

don't fall to your end
your too good for this
so don't make yourself begin
drop the knife
you don't need the blood
to make yourself feel
like cant be loved
I know your desperate
for a way out
but this wont help
it will only bring you down
I hate not knowing
if you will still be here the next day
I cant smile
if I think you might be dead
you say your ok
but I see the scars
I see the glaze in your eyes
because some things you cant cover with your sleeves
your so young
so full of life
don't throw away
what you have only just begun
the pills aren't candy
they're bitter sweet
they may bring you sleep
but they'll kill your dreams
so please my friend
just one more line
stay with me
because its not your time
A Writer ImprisonedA vast desert of nothingA Writer Imprisoned3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An endless expanse of white
A prisoner trying to seek solace
in a starless, moonless night
A chain missing its strongest link
In a tree's branches, a child's lost ball
The song that plays inside your head
whose words you can't recall
Sheep without their shepherd
Music without its glorious sound
A writer who feels all these
would rather be six feet underground
Ideas, plots, possibilities abound
but still, a feeling of loss
Something missing, a feeling of wariness
Like a street too dangerous to cross
A writer's worst nightmare is this:
to have an image but no paint,
to approach their destination then be stopped,
to have an appointment and longingly wait
Fettered, chained, and imprisoned
with no hope of escape
Only until inspiration breezes past
will the prison bars break

Self-Inflicted MurderA bullet to my brain, a knife to my heart.Self-Inflicted Murder3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crimson streams run braided down my chest.
I watch in amazement as my life slips away.
So beautiful, yet so... Something else.
A sigh of relief as the pain inside me disappears.
The need for tears no longer applies to me.
Let this fucked up world deal with its own problems.
I don't give a shit anymore.
Bruised and beaten I lie on the floor.
The ceiling reaches down to lift me in its arms
But the floor holds on, dragging me down.
Torn between Heaven and Hell, I'm ripped.

Raking claws through your hair
As the wind brushes your face
Atop this old bridge.
Confident in your invitation.
Confident in the promise of my presence.
Fondling your fingertips
As they caress your last words.
Together, we leave them for the world
To find at some later date.
After one last look over the edge.
Into emptiness we fly.
Entwined as we plunge into the deep, raging darkness,
I breathe your air, stealing life from your lungs.
My task, your life, complete,
I grip your motionless body.
Together, now, we shall forever dwell.

Where is the Sky?The sky is everywhereWhere is the Sky?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
it's between your toes
in the air around you
it passes through your eyelashes
when you blink
it flows in and out of your ears
the sky is everything
The sky is the distance
between you and I
it's the moment of silence
that stretches between us
that moment before
our lips meet in the middle
of the sky
The sky is the light
when gravity flips the switch
because I know the only thing
separating you from me
is that patch of sky
that small patch of sky...
The sky is the beats
between each your words
as you whisper sweet nothings
to the sky between
my ear and your mouth
that fragile, fragile sky
The sky is the limit
but we've reached the edge
of their barrier
we can't travel farther
because they've put a limit
on our love
a love I thought
could outgrow the sky
The sky separates us now
and the distance between us
seems farther away
then the sky
because all I feel now
is the crushing gravity
The sky is gone
you took it with you when
you left me

And bleed the love I gave
I've won it all
But the heart I've tried to save
Can you make it beat again?
And with the love I gave you
Can you erase my pain?
And will you always be next to me
Covering my grave from the pouring rain?
Darling i love you
But love can be insane
And even though you killed me
I'll always die again
For it's my sweetest pain
To burn in your love's flame
I know i'm inside a grave
But hear me, I'm calling your name
screaming for someone to save me

I don't deserve good things
I create my own pain and I'm addicted to it, pain has taken control over me.
Can't help my thoughts, they are overwhelming and I don't want your help, it's my issue and my way to hell.
I don't want them to know how bad I am eventhough they have an idea of it, however... No one knows how it is to be like me, to be me.
I rather be left alone so I don't hurt, you better run so I don't catch you...
I no longer want to hurt...
It's hard to admit that I might need help but I prefer to stay quiet and swallow it all, having the hope that someday I'll be free.
I'm tired of all the questions... giving explanations... Would you please leave me alone?
I'm hanging on by a thread and it's breaking, for how long will I stay?
I can no longer breathe , sometimes I feel like letting go...
Who would fight for me any

I want you to hear me, so I cover your ears.
I want someone like you to see me, so I blindfold you.
You make me feel like I'm not worthless.
I'm not neglected or alone anymore.
You're the only thing that makes me feel alive again.
You make me feel like I'm worth the trouble, I'm an even trade for the pain, and all the heartache I put you through.
How hard is it just to lean down, whisper in my ear those four worthless words:
"You are worth it."
How hard is it? Just to hold my hand and tell me that things are going to be alright?
That this isn't as fucked up as it looks?
God. Why do I do this? Keep getting involved with something I don't want
Tangled up in a high that I need, I have to have
I have to have you.

If you're ok, so am I
But I am so lonely
I am being devoured by my sorrow
The sadness that runs too deep
A brand on my neck
Blood screaming from my hands
I wish I was the smile on your mouth
The laughter in your daydreams
The flavor of strawberries on your tongue
I'm so hungry
So starved of the safety I have in your arms
Desperate for you affection
Such a pathetic sight
Me, begging on my hands and knees
Longing to belong With nobody but you
I've never had anybody smile at me the way you do
Or make me feel so at ease
I'm pathetic for wanting you
Craving you so greedily
But loving you so carefully

You are beautiful in everyway.
You seem to forget it day by day.
I wish to always see you smile.
Hopefully that smile will last a while.
There's a beauty within you.
It's time to let it through.
Always know that someone loves you.
One of those people is me and many others too.
I can see the hurt written across your face.
Don't let people tell you that you're a waste of space.
The world always seems to tell us who we should be.
Don't listen because you're perfect to me.
