A name less soulPlain and quiet, a girl with no name.
Who was dying on the inside, but showed no outer pain.
She wasn't like the rest, she could never be.
She felt unloved, she was never called pretty.
She tried to be what she hated the most,
So maybe someone would show her some love.
Forgotten, rejected, and on her own,
Loathed those who had cut her to the bone.
Each night her pillow was filled with tears,
Each day her shoulders carried all her fears.
Alone she sat, ridiculed by all,
Her heart was heavy, she felt so small.
Burnt out and broken, She couldn't take no more,
Lost with out feeling, her wounds were sore.
Until one day, the light did shine,
and on that day she did feel fine.
She stood up and found her voice,
her name, and with her life she had a choice.
And if you look, and you will see,
that plain, quiet girl, that would be me.
Lost feelingsIt's crazy the way I felt for you,Lost feelings3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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, I truly fear that they shall not come again.
What's wrong with me? I thought I'd always feel that way.
But now I'm numb my life feels only grey.
HollowWalking lonely on the path of life, the dark shadow always at my side.Hollow3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.

My note books filled with your name,
but I know you'll never feel the same.
But I still wish, and dream and hope,
that you'll be mine soon enough, but I seem to be fending my way up a slippery slope.
But I'm fooling no one not even myself,
because I know we will never be saying "in sickness and in health"
I guess I'll never get to know if we were ment to be, because she came along and clouded your view,
and you will remain unaware because you never knew,
That the love I have was ment for you.
ReflectionsRealist my friend, you are a bloody fool!Reflections3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Did you honestly think that love was simple?
That everyone on earth has one person that
They are just destined to be with?
I didn't think...
No matter how unlikely it seems,
A Realist can still be a Dreamer.
And will you look where that got you.
When has hope done anything practical,
And since when has dreaming ever helped Superman
Find his Lois Lane?
I don't expect you to understand.
It's just something you feel deep within you.
If you ever felt love before,
You would know.
Come on man!
You have to move on.
If you live in the past
You are sure to miss out on the future.
If I could, don't you think I would have done it already?
No, I don't expect you to know exactly how I felt.
I was on top of the world, and I had my eyes open long enough
To see everything come crashing down...
ChampionAs a child he watched, his heroes bask in glory,Champion3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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 streak,
But to the glitz and glamour he became weak.
Lost in the glory that was his own,
feeling high on top of his throne.
But into the scene came a new kid in town,
Who took him on, and brought him down.
Down and out he had lost his fame,
So he turned to a bottle with no name.
And in a drunken rage he let rip on the town,
Caused him a lock up in old downtow

Under a lace and feather cover is were she hides.
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 soul of a lost child.
A child that has seen so much, but yet has felt so little, and now the child is lost forever and now all that is left is this monster with the rouge red lips.
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.
Summer how I love youSeasons come and go but there is nothing better than the hot weather.Summer how I love you3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where the out doors is where I preside, water balloons from which no one can hide.
A tonne of suncream, which never works, burned to the core and boy it hurts.
But no one cares when your in the sun, having fun, with the people you love.
Long runs down the beach, dip your toes in the ice cold sea.
Feeling free and happy, I couldn't ask for more.
Picnics at the shore line, with sand in your socks, no care in the world you have when you climb over the sand dunes and the rocks.
Summer is the time made for children every where,(even the ones at heart) when you can let down your hair, relax and have fun.
So just enjoy your time in the sun.

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 actually glad.
Doomed LoveIf a demon heard an angel sing from above,Doomed Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And an angel and a demon fell in love,
Once they answer to passion's call,
Does the demon rise or the angel fall?
And though they may love in the truest way,
Where in heaven, hell or Earth could they stay?
Hunted by those who can't understand and those who refuse
And soon, so soon, they would have to choose
Between loving together, or saving each other's souls
And be left with a grief that could not be consoled.
Forever they would wander, longing for the other's embrace,
And wanting nothing more than to see their lover's face.
Their doomed love would destroy them, it would tear them apart
And they would slowly bleed to death
from broken hearts.

The one who gets in your head
The one who wakes up dead
I am the shadow that stalks the night
Everywhere I step there is no light
When I touch you everything fades to white
I am the your follower
The one prowling
The one deceiving
I am the people all around
I am your nightmare
The one who wakes you up screaming
The one who stops your dreaming
I am your deepest fear
The one that stops you cold
The one that's so old
I am the shiver that just went down your spine
I am your darkness
I am everything
I am your death
To make it simple
I am you
Lost GoodbyesLost Goodbyes3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My story of lost good-byes
Is held within these broken lines.
I hold the pen and tap the keys
But words fail to express these hopeless dreams.
The story begins in the frostbitten days
And swiftly spins into an insane maze.
At first, the path is easy to trace
Until it twists and turns to hide the gates.
Perched amongst naked branches of the oldest tree,
A honey-eyed stranger declared true love for me.
Skepticism spun itself across my face
As he pleaded for a chance to prove our fate.
But skepticism gave way to lucid smiles
As each sweet nothing stretched the miles
That separated his heart from mine.
All my doubts turned around, declined.
Soon, my memory did not stretch beyond
The power of his honey-coloured wand.
The days melted into one another
A misty haze of first love's wonder.
There's more to this scene than meets the eye:
In five months, I knew I'd say goodbye
To my love, my life, my only home
To venture to lands hitherto unknown.
HappinessWhat is happiness?Happiness3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it that feeling,
That wells up,
And washes over us in waves?
Is it an object,
That we all want to find,
Very few of us do?
Why do we all,
Seek this emotion?
Why can't we all,
Just stick with contentment?
Is happiness having,
Everything we have ever wanted,
Or may be only achieve happiness,
When we find it in simplicity?
Do you know where,
To find this magic,
That makes everything,
Do you know what happiness is?
Where it is?
Where is has come from?
How to achieve it?
Because I certainly don't.

If I could bring down the moon for you
It'd be at your doorstep in a second
If I could feel love for you
I'd return the feelings you so beckoned
If I could be with you forever
Just so your life could be a little better,
I would try to make you smile
Just so you could be happy with me for a while
I would kiss you gently to sleep
And wipe your tears whenever you'd weep
I would wish for you to love me forever
Our love no one could ever sever
But I just stood.
I stood watching as you broke down
Feeling useless and vain
I stood as you cried at my feet
Feeling discomfort in your pain
I stood, pondering on walking away
Leaving nothing but ashes to remain
...Come to think of it, I should.
I should have not lost my muse
I should have said what i felt
I should have told you I loved you
And everything else that in my heart dwelt
I should have told you the saddest part of it all,
Was that my heart

Of the darkness at night,
Of the spiders crawling in the dark.
I used to be scared of lightning,
And the thunder that follwed.
I used to be afraid of my dreams,
Of the monsters under my bed,
The strange nightmares in my head.
I used to be afraid of it being real,
And the things it might mean.
I used to be afraid of the future,
Of growing old,
Of growing up.
I used to be scared that it would end,
And that I'd be all alone.
I used to be afraid of so many things,
Scared of the sillyest things,
Soo scared I never realised what I should fear most.
Now I am not scared of everything,
The darkness at night calms me,
A thunder storm thrills me,
My dreams are vivid and bright
The future is a mystery I long to see,
Age is only a number.
Now, my biggest fear, is Me.

But all I hear,

I take an object to my head
Whisper my final words
I pull the trigger
Silence is heard
