Nightmare: The Secret Keeper
Nightmare: The Secret Keeper
I know, I know; I've asked too much of you already
Up until today I've asked for what I don't deserve
I hope, I hope; you will always be able to put up with me
Because everyone else chooses to ignore my words
So please, please; I want you to take me, and hide me far away
I need you to do this for me; I never, ever want to be found again
Take my will, take my heart, take my tears, take my name
Take my life, take my soul, take my fear, take my pain
Pull me into you, and keep me close to your void of a heart, so I can lose myself
Hold me in your arms, and keep everything in your palms, I yearn to be held
I can no longer stay
So please take me, and hide me before it's too late
I never wanted you to know that I don't care about myself anymore
You need to know up until this day I still feel so, so hollow
It's okay, it's okay, feel my peace, I'm giving it to you, so don't worry
Because you need it more

A Moment Of Love
This is a perfect chance of weakness to finally tell you that this isn't just a crush
It's not all about lust; I've always wanted to confess to you that I care about you so much
I apologize for being hesitant all of the time; it's just very hard to say you're my one true love
I yearned to say it out loud, but the words couldn't escape my mouth, that's what my fear does
I tried to say it to you in every lucid dream, that's how strong these feelings are
And I found myself waking up to tears of joy, because a true sense of hope is in my heart
I want to win you over
And I will never give up
Because you make the dark brighter
And you're always there no matter what
Every time you smile at me, it makes my day
Every time you laugh with me, it completes my night
Every time you speak to me, my problems fade away
Every time you're with me, it betters this hopeless life
You've done a lot for me that you don't even know about
Like when you told me that I was never alone
DependentDependent2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's one of those days
When everything goes wrong
And it hurts you in ways
When it feels like you don't belong
Thinking of the choices you made
What you've done
Questioning if redemption is too late
Can this guilt be overcome?
I deserve to remain
Locked within the pain
As my tears are wrapped in chains
And it's all true
What we all go through
Take all of my problems and give 'em to you
Because I cannot
Win back the battles I lost
For I am unable to pay the courage it costs
For those who say
That the past can't be changed
They're right, but the memories won't go away
So lead me astray
Carry all of my burdens I gave
And head for our war that awaits to be waged
Do you know what it's like?
To depend one someone so much
Who might not be able to save your life
For them to try and prevent a dying cause
All words fade when I try to apologize
Your selflessness leaves me speechless
You will always be a hero in my eyes
But...your kindness is my weakness

A Loveless Day
(That Will Never Fade)
This same old dream that I so loath
A vision of a dull world shrouded in gray
As I walk down a never ending road
The colorlessness in everything never seems to decay
In slow motion I suffer alone
Under the liquid-silver droplets of rain
You had no idea how strong my love was
You played a part in the pain that was dealt and done
You didn't experience the ocean of tears that I had to swim through
You didn't see the countless days I had to endure without being around you
You never felt the sickness within the soul that I had kept
You never knew of the quakes in my heart that you had fed
For you I had damaged myself
For you I put myself through hell
But I swear it was worth it
Because now I know how hard life can get
I want you to realize that you aren't a loss
For you will always be known as my first love
This same old reality that I can't let go
A nightmare of a person who is so far away
As I try to run from the world

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

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.

I just can't take it any more of having to walk around and trying to pretend Im someone Im not.
For years, I'd hid my true self.
Ever since I found out who I was, I had locked myself in the closet.
I can still recall the smells of fabric and the feel of wool on my face. Yes, I was a bit too big to fit inside comfortably, but my own fear of what they would do if they ever found out had made me regardless.
It isn't shame that kept me in the closet. Its the fear of prejudice.
I am the trapped bird that has finally been let out.
The time to spread my wings and show the world my pride of who I really am has finally arrived and I welcomed it's embrace.
Hanging my school jacket, I tell myself, Don't be afraid, Luce.
After all, Its not like I did anything wrong, right?
So why am I trembling?
Why do I hear those 'thud. thud's from my beating heart?
Climbing down the staircase, the sweet fragrance of chicken and potatoes greeted me.
For the first time in my life, I sat o

My Selfish Rebellion
My dear brothers and sisters, you're so, so blind
And you're always hiding behind our father of lies
Taking commandments, even though you have your own minds
We were created so, so far from the truth
Hand and foot, constantly waiting to be told what to do
This is me unbecoming what I am; dividing myself from all of you
Cast me into perdition
For all of my choices will be unforgiven
I will not stay in this golden prison
I refuse to listen
So try to tear me down
I dare you to smite me now
I deserve my own crown
A real sense of freewill is what I have found
I need to shed this halo of despair
I want this false grace to be devoured
Let me fall for my desires
While I set my own wings on fire
This bestowed belief is so, so controlling, I've seen it with my own eyes
Following some footprints while not making your own, staying within the lines
This is why I need to go my own way, and you all will see the footprints are mine

ive got everybody fooled

i bottle them up quickly
and keep pushing them aside
all of the expectations
all the pressure and stress
i strive to be perfection
but there are no points for second best
would you notice if i was hurt?
would anybody really care?
i sit there on the side-lines
wishing life wasnt so unfair
nobody ever notices
that my world is slowly breaking
but i will always put on

Imagine a church's sanctuary
Imagine a teenager boy
Who is trying his hardest not to cry
But showing no signs of hurt
He just stares into space
Blocks out the religious bigots
Inside he thinks that he's going to be happy one day
That a boy will come to notice him
See his fragile heart
Listen to his broken heart
Teach him to trust again
Imagine a teenage boy
One who is crying in his room
Imagine a mother yelling at him
Words of hate
He asks himself
"If she hates me now, what will she do to me when I tell her my secret?"
Imagine an uncle
Who uses his hands to hurt
A teenage boy
One that only wants to be loved
Imagine a teenage boy
Who dreams of a day
That he will no longer feel the pain of abuse
That he can finally show his pride
And no longer will have to hide it
For fear of his life
This teenage boy
Likes other teenage boys

You're the one to make my blood bloom.
The empty pain I feel inside,
foreshadows my deep demise.
I'm sick of crying,
I'm sorry for trying.
I should have ended when I was born,
then maybe no heart would be torn.
I wish my breath did not start,
and maybe even my heart.
Growing up is the hard part,
I really didn't want to start.
I wish it was easy to say goodbye,
so then maybe I could die.

Driving us all to madness
You've made the lyrics
In all my favorite love songs
Come to life with each melody

That one friend that you have lost connections with.
That one friend that has no idea how much they mean to you.
The friend that saved your life without even knowing it.
That one friend who means the world to you even if you don't to them.
That one friend who you love and want to get back but can never seem to.
That one friend that you still think about even though you have not talked in a while.
That one friend that you can't live without that has not talked to you in days
but you still love.
Through all the years you've been friends you've promised to always stay true to each other and keep the friendship alive.
That one friend that long since has grown apart from you and it hurts.
That one friend that you would die to get back
To just tell them how much you miss them and how much they mean to you
But the words are so hard to find and circumstances make this a hard task?

What's death like?
I hope there's a heaven.
I believe there is nothing.
I fear for a new life.
I fear because,
I probably won't remember anything.
My ideals, dreams and principals...
My family and friends...
People tell me,
It's okay because you won't be able to tell.
But isn't that the worst part?
What if you bumped into them on the street?
And you wouldn't even recognize them...
Quickly regaining your pace as you walk away from these...
On the other hand, it does sound beautiful.
Your former dreams might have left you, but at least their place has been taken.
At least it won't be empty.
In my eyes it still is the scariest thing in the world.
The only kind of sadness that enables me to feel true despair.

The sun will keep on shining.
Never forget that this is true:

And together, two cursed become stronger.
So I stay and protect her as we live in a dream
That could never come to fruition.
Because there is no girl out there waiting for me.
I'm no prince in shining armor.

and you left me in the dirt to cry.
So many times I can touch the memory of you
and people will tell me,
"He seemed crazy about you."
This poem is becoming something
I didn't expect.
You were never anything I expected.
You fell below
what reality told me
You drew little hearts on every letter you gave to me.
You kissed like a wet, slimy dog
You tasted like you hadn't brushed your teeth in a while
Some days the anger builds up again and I just feel used.
I feel like if there's anything else in this world,
I should be free from it:
you were a waste of time.
You mother acted
like she wanted to marry you off to me.
We were fucking sixteen.
Or you were. I was seventeen and stronger.
I hated myself because
I knew I was lying
when I told you I loved you,
because I knew I was lying when I said
I was happy
I hated that question.
Those moments when you would turn to me with your weird smile and ask,
"Are you happy?"
I needed to ask myself that, too.
