What do you see?
An emo girl with no fashion sense.
A girl with too much eyeliner.
A girl who obviously has no emotions.
You wanna know a secret?
I listen to everything you say.
You can't see me trying so hard to put outfits together.
You can't see the smile when I get my eyeliner just right.
You can't see me starve myself to be perfect.
You call me a slut,
but the guy of my dreams won't even look at me.
You criticize everything I'm wearing,
but I was up planning last night to make sure I looked perfect.
You turn your back when there's a single tear,
but I cry so hard every night while you ignore me.
Look at the girl standing in front of you.
I just wish you could really see me.

Eight Ways to Spot Emotional
There is no use in trying to be honest with an emotional manipulator. You make a statement and it will be turned around. Example: I am really angry that you forgot my birthday. Response - "It makes me feel sad that you would think I would forget your birthday, I should have told you of the great personal stress I am facing at the moment - but you see I didn’t want to trouble you. You are right I should have put all this pain (don’t be surprised

Destroying planets in her wake
Her entire body starts to shake
There is nothing that can reciprocate
The fever blinded azure-eyes
Lack the ability to disguise
Emotions and ego-stroking lies
She hopes her victim slowly dies
Her rage is slowly calming down
The animal allows itself to be bound
And settling down on the soft ground
A hollow shell is all that's found.
HatredWhy can't I realize all this hatred for you is only torturing me?Hatred1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I feel all better and relieved for a while when you leave me alone
But then you guilt trip me to weasel your way back into my life
Why do you always have to say your children need to have their grandfather in their life
No not when I can't forgive you for the things you have done to me as a child
No not when I can't trust you alone with them
No not when you just want to walk in and out of their lives
Why can't I realize all this hatred for you is only torturing me?

There was a somewhere over the rainbow
Where me and my dog can go
Pain washed away by the rain , warmth and sunshine remains
A place where love and happiness flows
Tears and fears we'll never know
Flowers of joy always grow

Only if it were so ..
I without YouIts hard to face your feelings, hoping it would move. Into something better, something we could resume. Into something special, which we left not to bloom. Into peace and love, which we had to groom. Into a faction, only me and you. Broken in darkness, into nothingness we loomed. Left with nothing left, we just broke into two. Sparks died quickly, just as quickly as we bloomed. Gone to far above, we fell into our own room. I a broken mess, you went into anothers room. I stayed underdressed, you prettier then I assumed. I to fix whats left, you already anew. Gone with distress, you were already in a bloom. Crushed under lifes breath, you inhaled someone new. Dead with nothing left, you happier then I could do. Singing with no rythem left, you were in your own tune.I without You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The DreamI lay my head down on the pillow that night to hopefully get some rest; I close my eyes and drift to sleep. My eyes snap open and I’m lying on the cold ground and darkest is everywhere, I look around and see gates the gates of hell and in front of me, how did I get here to hell the ground once cold turns red and hot “ow” I speak and stand the gates open and the devil points to me and then inside the gate as if to say come inside now. I close my eyes and whisper “so this is where I end up hehe in hell okay whatever as if I care….I’m sorry to the people I love but if I am dead that might be a good thing” I start to walk to him and inter the gate but then from behind me I hear a voice, I turn to see and figure of a female. I look at her an angel with black wing, long black hair and brown eyes she reaches her hand out and commands “come my darling, this is not your time” I’m confused if it’s not my time then why am I hereThe Dream3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

Nightmare: The Tragic Lover
In the silence
I can hear the lyrics
Of my mind's awareness
You're hidden from the world
Only to be known by me
My fate is foretold
You're the end that I wait to see
The remnants of rust consume
The taint covering my heart seeps through
I am dying from a cancer that was caused by you
All it took was a wound
From the kiss that would seal it soon
I just wish that I could take you down too
From something so blissful / Bore a mask of deceit
I remain so resentful / I don't know what to believe
A being that could damage / A feeling that could heal
You pushed me over the edge / You made me wish it was real
I find myself pathetic
That you were just an anesthetic
I used you until you fulfilled your purpose
Now I don't know who the real monster is
What have we really become of this?
One whose heartless and the other is painless
These dark mirrors
Are the protective barriers
Of the true lies of one another
You were my angelic desire
A hope that I h

Cry to the crystal moon
As light of silver
Descends with grace
The pale river sparkles
It shivers uncontrollably
Chilled by their cries
Time is frozen
The moment slowly fades
The wolves prowl restlessly
Calling to each other
A song of wonder
Fills the air
None have heard it before
Though it is as ancient as the moon

You are that butterfly
the pastel dye,
the painted wings
a puppeteer's tangled strings.
Memory of views from the sky
as hard as you try
to heavy to fly
But flight you will gain
for in the Red Rain
your beauty is shed,
wings flapping instead.
Scarred you'll remain
lost blood and new stain
forever with pain
but fluttr'ing again.

Why must I continue to fight?
Why can't i just run away?
Why won't my legs let me run?
I want to be a coward, a coward....
I can't run away from my fears.
My destiny will not control me.
I musn't run away, I musn't run away.
I must stand, I must fight.
Charging onto the battlefield,
Dashing through the enemy,
A wave of destruction spreading in my wake.
I'll destroy all who stand in my way.
Yes, all will be destroyed.
I will destroy it all with my own hands.
Nothing will stop me now.
I shall wipe them all from existance.
What have I done?...
I've destroyed all I've hated.
But also all I've loved.
I have nothing left to lose.
I do not care anymore.
Hot blood flows through my body.
Millions of thoughts race in my mind.
I cannot make sense of it all.
There is no one there.
Everyones gone, all gone.
Have they left me, or have I left them.
Or were they ever even here at all?.....

A world i fear i lost a place of pain sorrow and loss
A sky filled with nothing but fear
A heart broken turned into dust
A love that will never fully grow
My tears i share with the heavens
My soul i share with the pages
The angels watch over me but do they protect?
The pain of ones suffering never fully healed
A broken soul that has only known hatred
Clouds that turn are world grwy
Stars that fill us with hope
Smiles that bring us joy
I belive in you
But do you belive in me?
Are we destened for greatness?
Or are we about to fail our greatest test?
One can only hope that they'll never be alone
One can only hope for greatness and success
But if we fail will there be a price to pay?

Don't make me laugh.
Fairytale's aren't guidelines, they entertain children.
Just as exaggerated TV shows entertain older folks.
All a bunch of closed fantasies, ones with no possibilty.
Narrow, one dimensional "lives" that can't be lived.
You may find comfort in that.
But not me.
Reality's hard but at least it's real.
The biggest liars are the happy ones.
That's what the fairytales have taught me.
Be the "Prince".
The "Knight in Shining Armour".
Rescue the "Princess" from the fortress of evil, all on your own.
You only need her, no one else.
This is only amusing in the disgusted sense.
I'm the big ugly bodyguard who gets no recognition.
I'm only told what to do.
"Come with me."
I try my best to follow orders that will mean anything.
But the sun's setting, and my shift's almost over.
Without it, what am I to work with?
I was sick of being the "crowd pleaser".
I was doing what I was told.
I was doing what I felt I should to

She was cold, dark, and afraid
Her nights were long and neverending
Breaking down piece by piece
Tears falling to the floor
This fear sitting in darkness
All around me, it's slinking on the walls
Eating me alive ... bleeding inside
Banging my head against the wall
I scream "Go away, Go away"
With my heart pounding, I feel it pull, I feel it twist,
I feel myself shatter and die
And now I stand infront of the mirror
Not knowing what I see
Becoming what I do not wish to seek

Letting my body break twigs.
My legs are numbly in constant motion.
My eyes are wild, missing nothing:
From a moth to a butterfly,
An aligator to a crocodile,
Every detail is seen and the differences are clear.
The Earth climbs onto my bare legs.
It tells me to stop, it wills me to rest,
But I cannot hear it.
All I'm listening for is a sign of you.
Endless counts of empty caves I've been scoured,
Limitless rivers I've dived under.
So many rocks and roots unearthed by my clawed hands
Just to find a trace of you.
The green leaves brush their cool moisture across my head.
And still I run.
My breath is silently travelling between the Earth and I.
It tries to reach you, so that you may find me.
Blackbirds follow my haste,
They wish to know what's happening.
"Is there a storm coming?"
But what they do not see,
Is that the storm has been raging for eternities.
Rarely are we out of the clouds.
Some of us get out but realise there are others still left behind
