Delayed RealityYour fantasy a realityDelayed Reality2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it anything like you dreamed?
Does my heart beat the same?
Or is it faster? Stronger?
Was it as peaceful as you thought?
Did you feel the warmth?
Are you comfortable being held?
Please do me this favor…
Look back…look back on that moment
When you were enveloped in fantasy
Could you feel it in your heart?
That feeling, deep down, that you knew
Knew it wasn't really fantasy
But reality that had yet to occur.
VacancyLife has kept goingVacancy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Without your presence in it
On the outside
It all seems the same
But inside me
There is a vacancy
A room meant just for you
Letting my thoughts wander
They travel past your room
And I can only think
A single phrase
Tu me manques
I miss you
Come Away, Come AwayCome away, come awayCome Away, Come Away2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I lazily lay
It was the last day in the month of May,
When it said come away, come away
Still I sit, never flit, out of wit
In my chair in the middle of nowhere
To go anywhere, I surely do care
But still I sit there, in the middle of nowhere
I can't find the strength
As I lie at full length
In this bed that I dread
But still it said,
From far far away,
Come away, come away
Like a daunting whisper, it taunts
Never leaving me, it haunts
To grant me needed ambition,
Or supply me with intuition
Carry me away, I say,
Take me away, so far far away
I can no longer stay in this chair and lay
Let me explore, I implore
The endless shore and so much more
Let me see, I plea
All that thee have made for me
Let me out, I shout
Out of this route of endless doubt
Come away, Come away
I still hear it say
Even to this day
It will never cease to say,
Come away, come away
You've Both FailedAs my parents,You've Both Failed3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You've both failed.
For this reason,
You should be jailed.
Instead I'm the one that's in prison,
But that wasn't my decision,
And you left me heartbroken.
The police came,
But they couldn't take you away.
Justice isn't fair,
That's all I can say.
The law protects the sick and insane.
While the innocent suffer,
And live with the pain.
The police said that even a homeless man,
Had more dignity and hope,
Than you do.
And mom just told them that,
Everything was fine that she'd take care of you,
Her favourite line.
But they saw that you both were over the brink,
No matter what you say,
No matter what you think.
You both need help.
They asked you if your parents ever broke your heart.
You said no,
What a shocker.
Then they enlightened you,
That you broke my heart.
They told you both that you failed.
Failed as my parents.
Failed as my friends.
Failed as human beings.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
I saw the tears forming in your eyes.
But tears meant, and still mean not
The DreamStanding here, next to youThe Dream2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I stare into those eyes once again
Think back to when I first met you
How you stood out among the others
And for one short second that day
You were the only other one in the room
I knew there was something about you
Something incredibly great and special
And now I find myself back in the moment
I have no doubts, no concerns
I am sure you are the one
The one I have been looking for
All of this time
And that’s when it happens
I say the words “I do”
SHYWhen your shy, it's so hard to say Hi,SHY2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So I sigh, and wonder why,
No one understands how I feel inside,
As I wipe away the tears from the pain in my eyes,
Oh, he's just a loner, the kid that sits in the back corner,
Never could fit in felt like a foreigner, no matter where I'd go,
I'll just be a weirdo, worth nothing like a zero,
I lay in bed and wonder, did god make a blunder,
Isolated from winter to summer,
I try to rise, but I fall like leaves,
So hard to speak, is it a disease, but I'm shy not a freak,
Toss and turn as I try to sleep,
When will I awake from my depression,
What time is my resurrection,
Is their something wrong with me, do I need a correction,
Shy, different, flawed, but that's a blessing,
because imperfection is perfection,
So I'm done stressing,
Learning to love you for you is one of life's lessons,
If you share the same feelings,
I hope my words provide some healing,
So no more sighs, no more tears from my eyes,
Flawed, different, or shy,
We all can still shine li
Thank You, Dear FriendsWhy am I still hereThank You, Dear Friends2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I should be down
On the ground
Curled up in a ball
Feeling nothing but pain
Why are they still here
All of my friends
Surrounding me each day
Did I do something
To deserve to have them
I don't think so
But I am glad they are here
For without them
I would most certainly be broken
Thank you dear friends
For not turning your backs on me
Even when I am in my darkest hour
Have You Ever Felt This Way?Do you have any idea what it’s like?Have You Ever Felt This Way?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To live every day, not knowing what day it is,
Because you just don’t care?
Because you are numb, you feel nothing….
Depression is not what people are telling you…
It’s not just a sadness, it’s more a feeling of nothingness
You smile and laugh, you feign happiness
But in reality you feel nothing,
You just know that is what you are supposed to do
And the last thing you want, is someone asking about it
So you just keep being a fake, and you survive
You lose track of the days
Because time goes by so slow when you can’t feel a thing
You feel as if you shouldn’t even exist
You feel as though nobody notices you anyway
What’s the point to living when you aren’t really alive?
You keep asking that question
But you never have an answer
You never will have an answer
But you keep moving forward anyway
Till you reach the day where you’ve had enough
You stop listening to what everyone else has to

ImportantI took a moment tonightImportant1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And thought about some things
Things that are “important” in life
School, work, money, the usual
Stuff I've been taught takes priority
But no matter how hard I try
Nothing can convince me
That anything’s more valuable
Than the happiness I feel with you
So I guess what I am trying to say is…
You are what is most important
You have been for a while now
As cliché as it may be to say
I love you
I want you
I need you
Beautiful WorldI look into a mirrorBeautiful World2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I can almost visualize it
The darkness inside me
Breaking the surface of my skin
Covering everything around me
Drowning my room in emptiness
Then I turn around
Walk to the window and look outside
I see everything I can never be
I see the light, I see happiness
Belonging and beauty
When I look upon all that is in this world
I know I am not a part of it
I'm an outsider looking in
Desiring all of it
But when I step toward it
It all just moves twice as far
So I stop trying to go to it
As to not further myself from it even more
Who am I?Who am I?Who am I?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A man who could walk all night
And never find what I am searching for
A man who could sit and think for hours
And not come up with the answer I need
A man who believes in love above all else
But doesn’t know what to do when it’s his
A man who reaches success
Only to throw it all away
A man who is struggling
Yet won’t ask for help
But is this really who I am?
Who am I?
VulnerableA once thought indestructible armorVulnerable3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Destroyed now, leaving me vulnerable
Vulnerable to an assault on my emotions
How did this happen?
A simple gesture, a smile
That's all it took
To bring me to my knees
To shatter my armor,
like a fragile piece of glass
I now must live every day
Risking my heart's extinction

DreamThere he stands,Dream2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The man simply known as Dream.
He's different now, fallen from grace,
And risen back up to it.
He was a joyous man, but he was beaten,
Torn and scarred, starved and tormented.
How did he get past it all they question me.
I know the answer, only because I asked him myself.
This is what he said to me,
"You can only be broken so much,
Eventually they stop trying,
Then you take every scar,
Every fracture and shattered piece,
And turn them into strengths and advantages.
Since they can't hurt you anymore,
You have nothing left to fear."
He turned his tortured soul into flawlessness.
That is who he is now, a happy wounded soul,
A perfect little broken Dream.

Do They Even Know? (Beautiful World Part II)After years and yearsDo They Even Know? (Beautiful World Part II)2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of sitting in sorrow,
Watching the Beautiful World
Outside my window,
Feeling pain of separation
The great divide between me and them
It felt as though my heart were made of wood
And termites were slowly eating away,
But they would never finish
There was always more to consume.
I just wanted to die,
To escape torment
But for some cruel reason,
I was never given that option.
Now I just lie on the floor
The carapace of a person
Existing, but not really alive
All days blur together
I'm not even sure, exactly
How long I've been here
Scrunched up in a ball
With all my hope lost.
I just feel nothing,
I've become anesthetized.
And now all I do is wonder,
Does the world outside,
Even know I am here?

How you make me feel?
It's doubtful at best
For I don't even know
Who you are
I may have clues
But do I really want to know?
Yes, of course I do
Just the thought of you
Passing through my mind
Fills my heart with joy
I want to dance with you
Sing with you
Let you in my heart
And hope you want the same
But I'm not sure
If I have the courage
To tell you
Or even figure out who you are

Your ChoiceYou carry with youYour Choice2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An aura of beautiful serenity
Calming those around you
Stealing my thoughts
When you leave my presence
Although I have yet to see
I imagine that even in
A moment of faltering
You would be elegant
And if the day comes
That you stumble
I will be there for you
But do you know that?
Could you possibly know that?
For you know not who I am
But some day
I will reveal myself
And it will be up to you
To either accept me
Or cast me away for good
Like many before you
Debating With MyselfLiving in constant struggleDebating With Myself2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Debating with myself
Do I go out in search of love?
Or do I let it find me?
Risk a good friendship,
For a chance at something more?
Or wait and see
If you make the first move?
Deciding could be easy
If only I had a clue
As to how you feel
If I go for it,
I am going in blind
If I do nothing,
I may never know
Which is the greatest risk?
I do not know

Something extraordinarily different
That draws my thoughts to you
And I may never know

That my heart belongs
Wherever my mind goes
When it begins to wander
And that can only be you
For you are queen
Of the kingdom of my heart

Clay ladyShe was beautiful, kind and fairClay lady2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With sparkling eyes and lustrous hair
Her smile was one that shone so bright
It called me as a beacon in the night
But when I touched her, she flaked away
When I touched her, she was made of clay
She moves so swiftly through the world
How should I have known her to not be a girl?
How could I have known she'd disappear,
Whenever someone should draw near?
But when I touched her, she flaked away
She crumbled up; she was made of clay
I remember her, to this day
The strange being made of clay
For what purpose was she made?
That dusty terracotta maid
When I touched her, she flaked away
Turning to dust, she was made of clay
