What I'm not.I may not be the girl you write about, sings songs about, the girl you paint.
I may not be the girl that everyone wants to be, I'm just plain and simple me.
I may not be anything extraordinary I'm nothing new,
but I guess I'm here for you.
A shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. That's the kind of girl I am.
And if that is not what you want then it's plain to see.
You simply can't have me.
Lost feelingsIt's crazy the way I felt for you,Lost feelings2 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.
A diamond in the roughHe says I sparkle, he says I shine, but only because he is mine.A diamond in the rough1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The dullest stone in the dirt, broken smashed, raw and hurt.
With tender eyes and a loving heart, he bent down and picked me up.
Polished and cleaned with loving care. A diamond in the rough, one not to share.
But the gem I am sparkles only under his light, a radiant glow that lasts all night.
A treasured piece that he holds close, for I am the one he loves the most.
What if?If life as we know it ended today, would you fall to your knees and begin to pray?What if?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or try and make amends for sins of before, and hope it will lead you to heavens door.
Or would you act like you don't want to know, and hope it's all just a show?
Would you hold your love ones tight, or do something crazy on the last night?
But if it's going to end today, do you even have time to say,
Sorry for all your wrongs, or just tell them what you thought all along.
Even the ones who believed it was true, will be shocked that it actually came through.
So in the end there's not much to say, it's the end of the world.
Have a nice day.
A name less soulPlain and quiet, a girl with no name.A name less soul2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.

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.

Just to knock me down.
You put me in the shop window for everyone to see,
Just so they can mock me.
You tell me the world is my oyster, and I am the pearl,
Just to trap me inside.
You lift my heart and tell me its a gem,
Just to break it like glass.
You give me the good news first,
Just so you can hit me with the bad.
You give me dreams and hopes,
Just so you can crush them like a bug.
You do this all,
Just to make your self feel better.
Midnight kissesIt's late, and it's cold, oh what I wouldn't give to have you to hold.Midnight kisses2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your arms wrapped around me like a safety net, you plant kisses on my neck.
Shivers run down my spine, when I'm with you I feel electrified.
A soft kiss on the lips, your hands resting on my hips.
The magic look in your eyes, a look that gives me butterflies.
You hold me close and tight, everything feels just right.
You lean down and whisper in my ear, "I really do love you dear"
And with those words I hug you tight, nothing could ruin my night.
Pass the saltAt a darkened lonely table I find myself eatingPass the salt10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
The echoes of my heart beat fill the room.
Empty eyes watch from afar,
My every move being judged.
Each thought of mine being ridiculed
The faint foot steps as my fellow guest arrives
His head toped with a silk hat,
His face illuminated by the soft candle glow.
Sunken eyes with an endless stare,
Ghostly face baring scars.
The dining table puts us miles apart
Plates were a banquet used to be filled now with mere crumbs,
Now chipped and cracked like the empire around it.
We dined on what remained of a beggars feast.
Bathed under dying candle light.
The devilish eyes that watched grew closer with each breath I took.
Before they could reach us, the candle went out.
In the darkness my guest spoke,
His only words were;
"Pass the salt"

I know my presence just bothers you.
Those evil glares and little digs,
All those things to make you big.
You can poke and you can prod,
Then preach your words about your god.
You can act the little saint,
But that's something you just ain't.
You can pretend that I'm not there,
And then act like you treat us fair.

Get a "no further questions" and a bible quote.
Crow like demeanour you wallow in pride,
No pity you offer, as you throw the carcass aside.
That burning hatred of me, you truly despise,
That roaring fire in your eyes.
Now tell me Miss, as it's clear to see,
Why do you really hate me?

RestlessHaunting voices torment my sleep.Restless1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Growing pressures pull me to the dark so deep.
Heavy weights upon my chest.
Losing will, I cannot rest.
Nightmares grow in strong daylight.
A losing battle, one I cannot fight.
Tears do not fix, nor ease the pain.
For all I do seems in vain.
Feeling useless, feeling spent.
Would it best if I went,
Far away, never to return.
To run from the pain that bites and burns.
Far away, in a foreign bed,
Still unable to rest my head.

But it would be nice to hear from you.
But good things come to those who wait,
But waiting is the part I hate.
RougeIn a smoke filled room, mixed with a musty sent of cheep perfume and dryed lust. Love left this place years ago but this is were she resides.Rouge2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
Killer QueenShe's that girl you'll want to know,Killer Queen2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She doesn't make it rain, she makes it snow.
She can be fully dressed, in nothing but a vest
and a pair of white high heels, and still walk with added zest.
With a glass in her hand and a man 'round her waist,
She's got a killer instinct, and a extravagant taste.
She'll wine and dine at your demise,
But you'll fall hopelessly in love with her eyes.
She'll kiss you, and you'll feel fireworks,
And then leave with a devilish smirk.
She'll crush your heart in the palm of her hand,
And then laugh as it was part of her plan.
She'll watch you burn without a flame,
And play with your life like its a game.
And you can go and call her mean,
and try your best to make a scene.
But you'll never beat the Killer Queen.
The OakDo you rememberThe Oak2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That one house we made?
The one we carved
Out of the giant oak?
Because I sure do.
I visit it every day,
Watching the leaves blow,
And listening to the rustle.
And now it's Autumn.
The leaves have changed
To their brilliant reds...
Their wonderful oranges.
If only you were here
To witness this event.
To see the flaming tree
That has no heat.
But I know that at least...
At least you're here,
With me in spirit.
But also in the tree.
I remember your last,
That when you left us...
We give you a funeral at the tree.
We did more than that.
We scattered your ashes around it,
And buried your heart
Directly under the core.
This giant oak tree
That we once called home...
Is now the most precious
Place here in my world.

Or are you my Devil?
You hurt me so bad,
Yet you make me smile so much.
These wounds you cause me,
Are laced with honey.
How can you be my poison,
And my medicine?
Your words are sweet,
So light and kind,
Like bubbles in sunlight,
Rays of rainbows bouncing off.
Yet your eyes are as hard as stone,
And as cold as ice.
Your body language,
Like that of a stranger.
Your cryptic words,
Your hushed sentences,
Behind closed words.
What to do?
Do i believe in the dark in you,
Or the light.
I have to ask.
Are you my,
Angel or my Devil?

Though I've been here of years, you never noticed me that's clear.
And even if I reach fame, you'll still remember me as the girl with no name.

That everyone on earth has one person that
They are just destined to be with?

A Realist can still be a Dreamer.

When has hope done anything practical,
And since when has dreaming ever helped Superman

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...

To alienate myself from her?
What do I do,
Now that I am... invisible?
It's like I can't breathe,
The world's closing in on me,
And I'm trapped
With nowhere to go.
I haven't seen her smile
For several days now,
Nor have I heard
Her angelic voice.
I'm breaking inside,
Clinging to the walls of the past,
Trying to grasp onto something,
Before I die...
Is this what it feels like,
To lose my mind,
Or is this what they call,
A heart attack?
The song of the Magpie One for sorrow, two for joy.The song of the Magpie6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
What once was joyful, is now just sorrow.
The bitter taste of today, is stale for tomorrow.
A heavy drowse of a now distant past,
Faded memories, of passings so fast.
Three for a girl, four for a boy.
There once was a girl who fell in love,
Who had a heart as pure as a soaring dove.
She met a boy with a heart of gold,
Hard, metallic and awfully cold.
Five for silver, six for gold.
She was promised silver, diamonds and stones,
Yet all she received was brass, ash and bones.
She found the gold, in the best of others.
Giving love and strength to her sisters and brothers.
Seven for a secret never to be told.
Lies were formed and secrets kept
Serpents whispered while she slept.
She let nothing bother her, had struggles a few.
Though legend says for joy, you must see two.
