Heartbreak Happens to EveryoneIt's an unspoken ordinance of any relationship:Heartbreak Happens to Everyone2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've learned the hard way
That good-byes are never easy.
I've lived, loved, and lost.
Nevertheless, haven't we all?
Perhaps it was with a hearty Godspeed
You sent your love off;
Maybe the farewell was bitter.
But, guess what?
Heartbreak happens to everyone.
Live, love, and lose with grace, dear.
What doesn't kill you
Can only make you stronger.

which had been holding me together.
I laughed when you began to unravel me
a maniacal sound, disgusting and horrid in your eyes.
You released me then, and ran away,
leaving me broken, yet imperfectly perfect.
You hid, but I stayed and marveled
at the beauty underneath.
Something MoreI sit here in my room,Something More2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
my little corner of the world.
I think about all the sleepless nights,
all the lonely days.
all i can say is,
there must be more.
How can there not be more?
more than just sitting here,
more than being trapped in this repetitiveness.
is this all i'm destined for?
Am i to remain here forever,
and never get away?
I try to reach out,
just to be pushed back in.
This life is suffocating me.
There must be something more.
So, where is it?

Remember the children who were abused
The whole affair makes me so confused
How could it have gone on so long
Why were they taken somewhere they didn't belong?
These children were hurt for something so stupid
They were punished and killed for things they never did
Who would be so utterly cruel, to cause such pain and misery
Why did it take so long for others to see?
Many years and many more deaths
So many young children lost their breaths
Why snuff out a candle if it can still burn
Why snuff out their lives, didn't you learn?
These children were innocent, they had no idea
They were mistreated and filled with fear
Why would anyone want to cause such a thing
It really is quite madening.

From this empty void,
I want to get rid of,

RelapseI'm weak...yeah been this way for weeksRelapse2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every night I quietly weep...and been getting no sleep
And I reek...Of the blood that from these wrist always leak
The cuts always hurt..but only you could hurt me this deep
I try to cover this pain with an act..
A fake smile.. A laugh..
But every time I see you.. It feels like I have been smacked
And I hate..just seeing you..happy..unfazed
When I'm here hurting.. just..dying...and hiding the tears from my face
And you act..like what we had was nothing to you
Am I the only one who remembers.. everything we have been through
The pain constantly haunts my mind...
Its always followed by the image of your crying face...
Then I feel a guilty pleaure inside.. And I feel disgraced
I want you to be happy...I do...because I really do love you
But deep inside I just want you...to suffer like I do
I'm horrible perhaps.....Want you to be suffering..until both our hearts collapse
Because Love is just a painful drug...and I hope that for me you'll soon relapse
Angel's CryNo power through the houseAngel's Cry2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
at night sleeping on the floor
Moved the furniture against the walls
Sofa is blocking the front door
We're all sleeping in the same room
trying to keep each other warm
We're fearing for our life
like if we're in the middle of a storm
For two weeks we lived like this
after we started living on our own
When we finally escaped our father
And mother took the burden all alone
She always stood so strong
Even though we barely moved along
Acting like nothing in the world is wrong
trying to give us some place we felt that we belonged
Then one night I walked into her room
I could smell in the air she had sprayed some of His perfume
Her tears were flowing
I could see depression was starting to consume
For us she'd been a strong mother
But she was still a wife that lost her groom
It was the first time I saw her cry
And the first time I wished that He'd just die
It was the first time I looked up to the sky
and asked god to help my mother get us by
My Angel cried

True RomanceDo you know how much it hurts...to picture you with someone elseTrue Romance2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To only have your best friend...and have to believe the stories that she tells
And just hate it when she tells me...that you've forgotten about me
That for the first time you feel....that you're actually happy.
Her words hurt like daggers.. draining all the blood from my veins.
It hurts to know you'll never say my name again. How can you pretend I never mattered.
I treated you like you were my king....I thought I was your queen.
Hearing you were never happy with us is just obscene.
And its mean...to have your friend keep posting those pictures on my screen
But what hurts most is seeing you have a smile...better than any I had ever seen
You never smiled that way with me...I've never seen you so serene
And just...seeing your eyes gleam..still the perfect blend of blue and green
Makes me fall back on old routines...thinking back on memories...
The memorys play in my head like a favorite song

Licked up by wandering beasts,
Lost in the need to survive the day.
We bleed in hopelessness.
Evermore we cast off our clothes of (greed)
Chiseling away the stones around our heart.
Until we are rendered naked before the strangers gaze.
Lifeless ambition discards us satisfaction.
We pick petals from beautiful lilies.
To watch them die ugly and stripped.
Fantasies little children,
Of aged old tales never again believed.
We whip the dragon and burn their bones.
To forget the lesson of bravery.
Caged lions locked within our minds,
A beast we must dominate, control.
Powerful jaws try to sink into willing flesh.
We are left drained of selfishness.
Overall we set ourselves aside.
To the needs and whims of others,
By side stepping our own desires
Nailed palm to palm,
Fingers linked, clasped in despair,
Praying for strength to endure such pain.
Trust trickles in waves

That corruptible gaze, those precious eyes.
You're sinking further into your demise.
'Round and round this merry-go-round goes,
where she stops, nobody knows.
You'll almost definitely end up crashing to you knees
as I stop and listen to that delectable scream.
A perfect ballet is about to start,
faster and faster goes your speeding heart.
Make sure to capture the pieces before they fall.
We wouldn't want our Belle to crumble before the ball.
Straighten those shoulders, expose those thighs,
just don't let them catch you before the morning dies.
Try to hold the sobs at bay,
It'll be fun soon, isn't that what they say?
So crumpled and damaged as you struggle on the floor,
just move a little closer to the shattered glass door.
Tired and broken, you stand alone,
suddenly remembering no one's taking you home.
Tears echo as they hit the ground
as you finally noticed what's really going on.

maybe, we can return to
maybe, we can call home
listen to the quiet noise, midnight
and watch the city lights, outside
the glass of your bedroom window
cool under your palms
and against your cheek
you're looking for it too
maybe you've seen it
in a dream
or maybe you know it
from somewhere in your memories
maybe you've already found it
and you just don't realize it
it might be the familiar song
that you hum when you're alone
or the easy smile that tugs at the corners
of your lips and your heart at the sight
or the memory of another
it might be the pride behind a father's smile
or the look in a lover's eyes
but hey, life's a journey
and sometimes I think
that we'll only really find someplace
at the end of it
maybe tomorrow, I'll find you
and maybe tomorrow, we'll walk it
together, the long way home

The question was a little off hand, a little unexpected and a lot intriguing.
She lifted up her eyes to meet his, tilting her head slightly to the right and replying with a quiet, "how?"
"You know exactly how I like my coffee and you make a point to get up every morning and make it just right for me before I leave for work, even though you go back to sleep immediately after."
A soft smile spread across her lips as she listened to his words. His bright eyes looked into hers as he gently held her hands in his.
"You know that I like the room cold, just so I can use more blankets at night, and you never complain about it. In fact, you've set our bed up to keep us equally warm and comfortable."
They both laughed quietly to themselves, before he turned his eyes away, looking up to their fireplace.
"You take care of the things that are important to me, even if you may think they're incredibly stupid."

Love both and choose none
He's tough but she's nice
She's sweet but he's spice
I'm stuck in this dichotomy
My choices are hypocrisy
To love his blatant honesty
Means hating her for modesty
My heart is so confused
How could I ever choose
Love her and love him too
Different reasons but it's true
He makes me forget
All the failures I've been with
The only family in his pack
And sometimes his midnight snack
He's my shiny armored knight
The sturdy sword I use to fight
But she's become my trusted shield
Causing enemies to yield
With her I feel admired
Her desire, I'm inspired
Cuddling warmth, comforting kisses
And a belly full of wishes
The dragon or the butterfly
With both I live, with none I die
But only one I can call mine
The other's love I must decline

throwing roses over a pearlescent casket
bathed in baby pink,
who knew death could be so feminine,
but funeral hymns plague the fragile air
while the graveyard is soaking up mournful stares,
maybe a few glances of relief are exchanged like drug money,
I look around and realize how everyone looks so alive
when we are surrounded by fatality,
translucent tears spill over flushed faces,
sunken eyes mirror hollow smiles
as the reapers cling to our backs like sloths
and everything feels slow,
everything falls stagnant,
then we drink from the goblet of faith and hope
and we get drunk off the elixir of life,
the fog clears
and our skin burns gold as the sun rises against our withered hides,
we can still feel the warmth which means we must still be alive,
so we don't move on but we do move forward
with our ancestors ghosts living within our hearts,
whispering in our ears,
and guiding us into the light.

I don’t admire you from afar when you’re not looking.
I don’t die inside when you look straight through me.
I don’t stay up late at night thinking about you.
I don’t touch myself to the thought of you making love to me.
I don’t cry myself to sleep knowing that I mean nothing to you.
I don’t dream about you when I fall asleep and wish to wake up next to you.
I don’t write melodramatic poetry about you.
I don’t even tell you the truth.
